JOSE IN DEMAND? YOU BET HE IS .
WITH JOSE MOURINHO strongly fancied for a return to Chelsea, William Hill were anticipating taking plenty of bets for him to succeed AVB as permanent boss at Stamford Bridge so when a Kent punter asked for a £1000 bet on him they were surprised that it was for him to take over at Spurs! Mourinho is being backed to be the next boss at Chelsea, Spurs, Manchester United and England even a man of his ability is unlikely to be able to complete that set said Hills spokesman Graham Sharpe.The available Rafa Benitez and Mourinho are the best fancied Chelsea contenders so far.
Meanwhile, another next boss punter staked £3000 on Harry Redknapp becoming the next England manager. Many punters regard the England job as a fait accompli, but if Spurs continue to concede goals at their current rate it may not be! said Hills spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills Next permanent (one year contract or more) manager of Chelsea- 5/2 Jose Mourinho; 5/2 Rafa Benitez; 5/1 Roberto di Matteo; 6/1 Pep Guardiola; Fabio Capello; 14/1 David Moyes; 20/1 Deschamps; Hiddink; Poyet; Rijkaard; Rodgers; Van Marwijk.

SPL FAVOURITES TO BE FIRST WITH GOAL-LINE TECHNOLOGY ..
WITH SPECULATION growing that FIFA are set to endorse the introduction of goal-line technology, William Hill have opened a book on which major European league will get to introduce it first and have made the SPL 13/8 favourites. This seems to be a story which has been around forever without actually happening, maybe at last it is imminent. We think the SPL could be well placed to be considered for the honour of staging the first League game to boast goal-line technology. Said Hills spokesman Graham Sharpe.
FIRST LEAGUE TO STAGE LEAGUE GAME WITH GOAL-LINE TECHNOLOGY:
Scottish Premier League 13/8
English Premier League 11/4
German Bundesliga 4/1
Spanish La Liga 11/2
French Ligue 1 7/1
Italian Serie A 8/1
Dutch Eredivisie 10/1
ARSENAL 20/1 FOR MIRACLE ESCAPE
William Hill make Arsenal 20/1 to manage to overcome the four goal deficit against AC Milan to make it through to the next round of the Champions League when they face AC Milan on Tuesday night. Arsenal are 23/20 to win the game in 90m, 12/5 to draw, with AC 23/10. Robin Van Persie is 25/1 to score a 90m hat trick. A 4-0 90m win for the Gunners is 40/1, with a 5-0 triumph 125/1.
