TOWN old-boys are among the favourites for the Portman Road hot-seat.
Former Ipswich star Brian Talbot, now manager at up-and-coming Rushden and Diamonds, is listed at 7-2 joint favourite by Ipswich bookies Krullind.
But it could be a case of déjà vu if 14-1 shot Steve Whitton gets the nod. The ex-Town player is manager at Colchester United – the same club that grudginly provided the services of George Burley.
Sacked Sunderland boss Peter Reid shares favouritism with Talbot and the usual out-of-work suspects Joe Royle, David O'Leary and George Graham also rate a mention.

But at 12-1, 20-1, and 25-1 respectively, bookies at Krullind clearly feel there are other more likely candidates.
Former favourites at Portman Road Tony Mowbray, listed at 5-1, and current Motherwell manager Terry Butcher, an 8-1 shot, are sure to be backed.

As is 10-1 shot, Ipswich stalwart Mick Mills. An outsider for the job is burly ex-Norwich City and Liverpool midfielder Jan Molby.
The bulky Dane is listed at 33-1 after being sacked by Hull City earlier in the week.
And who knows, a certain Paul Gascoigne threw his hat in the ring for the Exeter City job this week. Maybe he'll be on the blower to David Sheepshanks.
