WHAT PRICE ROONEY TO MISS 3RD GAME ANYWAY?
William Hill offer 11/4 that Wayne Rooney will NOT start in Englands 3rd Euro 2012 Group game against Ukraine. After the whole desperate campaign to get the ban reduced it would be ironic if he were to be injured ,not selected for the game, or brought on as a late sub said Hills spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills make Rooney 1/ 4 to start the game.
WILL IT BE MANC MAYHEM FOR EUROPA PUNTERS?
William Hill make Manchester City 6/5 favourites to go furthest of the British clubs left in the Europa League, but fear punters may find it difficult to make their minds up about how committed the two big boys eliminated from Champions League may find it to commit to a serious Europa challenge. City would find it difficult to field a poor side given the depth of their squad, but Fergie has yet to seem enthused by the idea of a tilt at the Europa League, and for sure both clubs will regard the Premier League as their main priority said Hills spokesman Graham Sharpe.
We enjoyed an excellent night on Wednesday thanks to Uniteds result but I think on balance we may have preferred to take a short term hit for the long term gain of having four Prem teams in what is clearly the major competition, the Champions League. And the jury is out over whether having City and United playing on Sundays rather than Saturdays in the League will be a positive for us
Hills…….Furthest progressing British team in the Europa league:
Man City 6/5
Man Utd 6/4
Dead heat rules apply.
FINAL STRAW FOR FERGIE?
FOLLOWING their embarrassing exit from the Champions League, Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is 5/2 with William Hill no longer to be United boss on the first day of next season (2/7 still to be in place). ‘Sir Alex may not fancy the idea of having to build yet another team all over again’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. Hills make United 2/5 to win NO major trophy this season.
William Hill now make Manchester United Evens to go further than City, who are 8/11 favourites to outdo United, in the Europa League for which Hills have made City 6/1 favourites and also offer 7/1 Man U; 10 At Madrid; 11 Valencia; 14 Schalke; At Bilbao; Porto; 18 Stoke; 20 Ajax; PSV; PSG
