Who Will be the next Manager of Walsall

We may get some clues before a market is created when we look back at previous Walsall managers’ appointments and the odds on offer. 

Troy Deeney

Birmingham born Deeney was heavily supported in the next Walsall manager betting when Michael Flynn was sacked in 2023. His odds were very short (4/5) but the position may have come a couple of years too early as he decided to move to Forest Green Rovers as a player/coach. 

Danny Cowley

The Ubiquitous Cowley, who features in nearly every EFL betting market, has been away from management since being sacked by Portsmouth in January 2023. When he is appointed, somewhere, it will be his 4th time in a Football League hot seat after Lincoln City and Huddersfield Town. 

Kevin Phillips

After a stellar goalscoring career (246 Goals in 580 Appearances), Kevin Phillips moved into coaching with Leicester City, Derby County and Stoke City. His first managerial offer came from South Shields in the Northern Premier League, where his side won promotion to the National League North. He left the North East club in April 2023 and was 6/1 to be appointed at the Bescot.  

David Artell

Another out-of-work manager whose name features in next manager markets is David Artell. He was 8/1 in the Walsall odds before Mat Sadler got the position. Artell is best known for his long spell as Crewe Alexandra boss (2017-2022), where the club won promotion to League One and was named League Two Manager of the Year.
