Next Oldham Athletic manager odds – Paul Scholes odds-on

Oldham Athletic searching for a new manager after John Sheridan leaves Boundary Park

UPDATE 12.10.17
Paul Scholes has emerged as the new favourite to become the Oldham Athletic manager. Scholes has been interviewed for the role at Boundary Park this week, with the former Manchester United and England star having been an Oldham fan all his life.

BetVictor now go 4/5 that Scholes replaces John Sheridan and this would be his first managerial position, with the League One club having enjoyed a recent upsurge in form after Sheridan’s departure, something which has led to supporters calling for caretaker boss Richie Wellens to take charge.

Wellens is a 6/4 poke and might end up being part of the coaching team should Scholes get the nod, with Alan Stubbs now 6/1 after previously being 1/2 favourite to take charge at the Lancashire club.

UPDATE 03.10.17
Alan Stubbs is now the 1/2 favourite to become the next manager of Oldham Athletic, with the former Hibernian boss having been near the top of the market since John Sheridan left. Richie Wellens is a 3/1 poke and the caretaker boss has engineered consecutive wins which has helped the Latics out of the drop zone.

Clarence Seedorf has drifted to 8/1 and it appears as though the Dutchman won’t be taking charge at Boundary Park, with Stubbs potentially installed before the weekend.

UPDATE 29.09.17
Clarence Seedorf has emerged as the surprise favourite to become the next manager of Oldham Athletic, with the Dutchman now 4/7 favourite with BetVictor to take charge after John Sheridan recently left the club.

Seedorf would be sure to create a lot of media attention on the struggling League One club, although whether the former Milan midfielder would be willing to take charge is another matter.

Alan Stubbs remains in the reckoning at odds of 2/1 and perhaps he will be the more likely appointment, while Darren Ferguson is out to 16/1.

UPDATE 27.09.17
Alan Stubbs has entered the top of the betting market to become the next manager of Oldham Athletic, with the former Bolton defender interested in a return to football management. Stubbs didn’t fare well with Rotherham last season but he’s a 7/2 chance with BetVictor to land the role after John Sheridan recently left.

Oldham claimed a surprise win over Peterborough on Tuesday night, with Darren Ferguson remaining favourite to get the role although he’s drifted from 2/1 and perhaps he will remain with Doncaster Rovers for the foreseeable future.

UPDATE 26.09.17
Darren Ferguson has emerged as the odds-on favourite to become the next manager of Oldham Athletic, with the current Doncaster Rovers manager now 1/3 with BetVictor to replace the departed John Sheridan.

Ferguson is apparently interested in the vacant position despite guiding Donny to League One last season and Rovers seem to be in better shape than a Latics side who have just four points on the board this season.

Pablo Correa is a 5/2 chance and Richie Wellens is a 16/1 poke, with the latter taking over as caretaker boss although he’s not expected to be given the chance to land the position on a permanent basis.


Oldham are the longest-serving club in League One although the Latics have been living a charmed life in this division for the past few seasons and manager John Sheridan has left Boundary Park.

Sheridan has been the saviour at the Lancashire club for the past couple of campaigns, although Oldham are rooted to the bottom of the table after amassing just four points since the season began.

Becoming the next manager of the Latics doesn’t look an attractive proposition, although Owen Coyle has been installed as favourite at odds of 7/1, while Ronnie Moore is a 9/1 chance and has previously been in charge at Oldham.

Coyle has plenty of experience, especially when it comes to managing clubs in Lancashire and that includes Burnley, Bolton and Blackburn, although whether this represents an attractive proposition is another matter.

Shefki Kuqi is a former Latics player and he’s a 9/1 chance, with Neil Redfearn available at 10/1, although there are rumours circling the club that a foreign manager will be installed in the hotseat.

Supporters are wondering about the future of the club considering that there has been a financial mess for several seasons, with Nigel Adkins and Steve Cotterill among the other names being mentioned.

All odds were correct at time of posting.
