The latest odds on the new Hartlepool United manager
While Lee Bradbury was overwhelming favourite for much of last week - and confirmed he had held talks with Pools - his odds have lengthened in recent days. But who are the other runners and riders? Click through the pages below to see who the bookmakers believe are in contention for the job:
A surprising overnight favourite, Money had barely been mentioned for the job until his odds tumbled this morning. He has plenty of experience at this level and has guided teams back to the EFL before.
The Pools first team coach was favourite for the role over the weekend, and remains in contention as punters continue to back him to take the top job.
The only manager to confirm holding talks with the club, Bradbury remains among the favourites for the Pools job - but the compensation demanded by current employers Havant & Waterlooville could prove a sticking point.

Clark is known to be keen on the Hartlepool job - as he was when Bates took over - and remains an outsider in the market as the club take their time over an appointment.
A name mentioned by many Hartlepool fans, Askey failed to succeed at Shrewsbury but guided Macclesfield to promotion from the National League last season. That experience could count in his favour.
The former Leeds United midfielder has plenty of experience on the pitch, but his one and only spell in the dugout at Port Vale was short-lived. Still, he could fit Pools' brief of a manager who could grow with the club.
Hartlepool aren't thought to be keen on Brown - who was dismissed by Swindon earlier this season - but that hasn't stopped the bookmakers from featuring him on their long list of odds.
No, seriously. The ex-Pools striker is able to be backed at 33/1 to take the vacant Victoria Park hotseat.
A former Pools manager, Murray's spell in the dugout was memorable for all the wrong reasons. But the current Carlisle coach can still be backed to take over at the Super 6 Stadium.
While he seems in no rush to return to management after leaving Bradford in the summer, ex-Sunderland boss Grayson is still worthy of inclusion on the odds list.
