Pardew Loses His Rag And Loses Punters Their Red Card Dough

Alan Pardew became the first Premier League manager sent to the stands and not one William Hill punter backed the Newcastle boss to see red which was offered at 16/1. The most popular selection was 6/1 favourite, Mark Hughes, who, despite his sides poor performance and the warm summer weather managed to remain relatively cool.

Mark Hughes is now the 10/1 favourite to be the next manager to be sent to the stands with David Moyes and Paul Lambert 11/1. Pardew has been cut slightly after his indiscretion to 14/1.

“Alan Pardew’s momentary loss of control will have everyone talking although the odds would suggest that he may well have learnt his lesson,” said Hill’ spokesman Joe Crilly.

Jermain Defoe scored for Spurs, but it was not enough to save his Spurs side from defeat and William Hill offer 11/8 that Emmanuel Adebayor arrives at Spurs before the end of the transfer window.

Next manager to be sent to the stands: 10/1 Mark Hughes; 11/1 David Moyes; 11/1 Paul Lambert; 12/1 Adre Villas Boas; 12/1 Martin O’Neill; 12/1 Roberto Mancini; 12/1 Sam Allardyce; 12/1 Tony Pulis; 12/1Arsene Wenger; 14/1 Alan Pardew; 16/1 Chris Hughton; 16/1 Martin Jol; 16/1 Michael Laudrup; 16/1 Nigel Adkins; 16/1 Steve Clarke; 20/1 Brendan Rodgers; 20/1 Brian McDermott; 20/1 Roberto Di Matteo; 20/1 Alex Ferguson; 25/1 Roberto Martinez

Jermain Defoe Premier League goals: 9/4 1-6; 6/4 7-12; 13/8 13-18; 10/1 19 or more

Adebayor to sign for Spurs before the end of the transfer window: 11/8 yes; 8/15 no

Rvp Backed To Start Season At United

Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed that Manchester United are still in the hunt for Robin van Persie and William Hill offer 6/4 that the Dutchman starts Manchester United’s first game of the season. William Hill think that van Persie and Wayne Rooney will be the focal point of Manchester United’s forward line and they are both 5/6 to outscore their potential future striking partner.

“Van Persie’s exit from Arsenal looks to be inching ever closer and we think he could be lining up for United on the first day of the season,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Should van Persie come in, United will probably have to offload one of their strikers and that would probably be Berbatov. Hills make Zenit St Petersburg the most likely destination for the Bulgarian at 6/4, with AC Milan 5/1 and Galatasaray 6/1.

Tony Hibbert scored his first ever goal for Everton in his testimonial against AEK Athens and William Hill are offering odds of 3/1 that he manages to break his Premier League duck this season (2/9 that he does not).

“Tony Hibbert may have got the goalscoring bug after his strike against AEK Athens and may venture further forward this season in order to get his name on the scoresheet again,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Brendan Rodgers has stated that every player has his price, hinting that Daniel Agger may well be on his way to Manchester City and the big Dane is 5/1 to sign for the Premier League Champions by the start of the 2012/13 season.

Tony Hibbert to score a Premier League goal in the Premier League during the 2012/13 season: 3/1 yes; 2/9 no

Robin van Persie to start Manchester United’s first game of the season: 6/4 yes; 1/2 no

Goals match bet: 5/6 van Persie; 5/6 Rooney
*van Persie must be a registered EPL player on 1st September or bets void

Daniel Agger to move to Manchester City by the start of the season: 5/1 yes; 1/9 no

Dimitar Berbatov next club: 6/4 Zenit St. Petersburg; 5/1 AC Milan; 6/1 Galatasaray; 8/1 QPR; 14/1 Leverkusen; 20/1 West Ham; 25/1 PSG; 25/1 Spurs

You Bet Two Big Money Strikers Are On The Move

With Roberto Mancini all but ruling out a move for Robin van Persie this summer, William Hill have eased Manchester City’s odds of signing the Arsenal striker. Manchester United are in pole position at Even money to be Van Persie’s next club, with Italian champions Juventus 13/8. It seems to be a race between those three clubs with Barcelona fourth favourites at 20/1.

Despite Arsenal starting to make signings that could potentially keep RVP at the Emirates, it appears to be a case of too little, too late and he is 4/11 to have left the club by the start of the season.

“Rather surprisingly, Alex Ferguson has been very public in his desire to sign van Persie and this shows how desperate he is to get his man after Nasri snubbed the Reds for the Blues last year and it looks like he may well succeed,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

The other big name likely to be on the move this summer is Andy Carroll and William Hill offer 1/2 for his next club to be West Ham with Sam Allardyce reportedly keen on the big striker. He is 9/4 to return to Newcastle and 7/1 to join Aston Villa.

Robin van Persie next club: 1/1 Manchester United; 13/8 Juventus; 15/8 Manchester City; 20/1 Barcelona; 25/1 AC Milan; 25/1 PSG; 25/1 Real Madrid; 33/1 BAR

Robin van Persie to be at Arsenal on the first day of next season: 2/1 yes; 4/11 no

Andy Carroll next club: 1/2 West Ham; 9/4 Newcastle; 7/1 Aston Villa; 12/1 Tottenham; 20/1 Fulham; 20/1 AC Milan
*loan deals count

Top Premier League goalscorer: 7/1 Sergio Aguero; 7/1 Wayne Rooney; 8/1 Fernando Torres; 8/1 Robin van Persie; 16/1 Carlos Tevez; 16/1 Luis Suarez; 20/1 Danny Welbeck; 20/1 Darren Bent; 20/1 Javier Hernandez; 20/1 Lukas Podolski; 20/1 Mario Balotelli; 20/1 Nickica Jelavic; 20/1 Papiss Cisse; 25/1 Andy Carroll; 25/1 Emmanuel Adebayor; 33/1 BAR

Van Persie 2/1 To Still Be At Arsenal At End Of Transfer Window

Arsenal remain hopeful that Robin van Persie will remain at Arsenal, but tellingly, William Hill make the Gunners captain a shorter price to be at Manchester City at the close of the transfer window tan he is to be at Arsenal. He is 6/4 to join the Premier League champions and is 2/1 to stay put.

During the week, Sir Alex Ferguson suggested that he would be interested in signing the want away striker and Manchester United are 3/1 to win the race to sign him.

“Arsenal are hoping that van Persie does a ‘Rooney’ and stays at Arsenal, but with so many suitors and just a year left on his contract, it looks likely, he will be on the move,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Au-revoir Allardyce: Avb 20/1 First Man Out!

The Premiership off season has probably never seen so much managerial movement and the latest odds from William Hill suggest that many will not be given much time to deliver. Hills are offering 11/8 that six or more managers leave their current roles during the season and 10/1 that either none or one go!

Sam Allardyce is the 8/1 favourite to be first out of the door, with Chris Hughton, Michael Laudrup and Steve Clarke all 9/1. The new Spurs manager, Andre Villas-Boas, is 20/1 to be first out with Sir Alex Ferguson the 100/1 outsider.

“With so much early movement you would think there would be very few moves in the season but as we all know, football is a results driven business and there aren’t too many second chances in the Premiership! said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.

First Premier League Manager to Leave: 8/1 S Allardyce, 9/1 C Hughton, 9/1 M Laudrup, 9/1 S Clarke, 10/1 P Lambert, 11/1 B Rodgers, 11/1 M Hughes, 11/1 N Adkins, 11/1 R Di Matteo, 11/1 R Martinez, 12/1 M Jol, 16/1 B McDermott, 20/1 A Villas-Boas, 20/1 M O’Neill, 20/1 T Pulis, 25/1 A Pardew, 33/1 D Moyes, 33/1 R Mancini, 50/1 A Wenger, 66/1 No Manager to Leave, 100/1 A Ferguson.

End Of The Chelsea Pensioners…ash Dives To Splash Everton…pepe 6/1 To See Red

Much has been made of the fact that Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba, despite their impressive performances against Barcelona, could be on their way from Chelsea at the end of the season. William Hill are offering 11/4 (Lampard) and 11/10 (Drogba) that they have left by the time the 2012/13 Premier League season kicks off. Chelsea face Arsenal without Wednesday night’s talisman and Hills think that they could struggle with Robin van Persie 6/4 to outscore Fernando Torres.

“If Di Matteo gets the Chelsea job on a full time basis he may want to keep these seasoned pros for one more season but it is inevitable that all good things have to come to an end and the Blues may dispense of them to make way for younger players,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Sir Alex Ferguson has warned Ashley Young that he could earn himself a reputation if his theatrical antics continue but despite this William Hill are offering 10/1 that the Reds’ winger wins his side a penalty against Everton to make it three in three home matches.

One of the most important El Clasicos in recent years takes place on Saturday and William Hill are expecting a feisty affair, offering just 11/10 that there is a red card during the match. The main perpetrator of El Clasico shenanigans, Pepe, is 6/1 to see red during the game. Currently, Ronaldo and Messi are tied on 41 goals in La Liga but William Hill are offering 8/11 that the Real Madrid flyer bags more than his Barcelona counterpart between now and the end of the season (Even money that he does not).

United 4/9 To Maintain Five Point Gap At Top Of Table

The title race could take yet another twist on Sunday with both Manchester sides in action. William Hill are offering 14/1 that Manchester United win and Manchester City lose, leaving the Reds eight points ahead before their game next weekend. Hills also offer 10/1 that the opposite happens and Manchester City close the gap to just two points. The favourite is that United retain their five point gap (at 4/9) with United having the chance to win the Premier League at the home of their bitter rivals. Hills are go 5/2 that they do just that (2/7 they do not).

“Manchester United would surely love the opportunity to win the title at the Etihad, but in the same vein, City will be determined not to let that happen and the derby next week could hinge on the two games on Sunday,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Alex Ferguson talked about how he expects that Wayne Rooney will beat Bobby Charlton’s Manchester United goalscoring record and William Hill go 2/1 that he just that during his career (4/11 that doesn’t).

How many points will Manchester United be clear after this week’s round of Premier League fixtures: 10/1 two; 5/1 three; 50/1 four; 4/9 five; 50/1 six; 7/1 seven; 14/1 eight

Manchester United to win the League at Manchester City: 5/2 yes; 2/7 no

Wayne Rooney to beat Bobby Charlton’s Manchester United goalscoring record: 2/1 yes; 4/11 no

Fergie Olympic Gripe And Who Will Finish Third, Fourth And Fifth ?


With Sir Alex Ferguson said to be angry at the prospect of seeing several of his players taking part in the Olympics, William Hill have opened a book on how many United first-teamers will take part in the Games and make it a 9/4 chance that he will have to endure seeing 6 or more of his side in action – ‘It must come with the territory that when you are one of the top sides in the world your players will be in demand to represent their countries so I’m sure Sir Alex has had plenty of time to prepare himself for the prospect of seeing many of his lads in action in Euro 2012 and others in the Olympic tournament’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

How many Man Utd players will go to the Olympics? (Players must have played for the Man Utd 1st team)
6 or more….9/4

WHO’LL FINISH 3RD, 4TH, 5TH (in correct order)….


TOP 4 FINISH – 1/12 Arsenal (6/1 not); Evens Spurs (8/11 not); 6/4 Newcastle (1/ 2); 2/1 Chelsea (4/11)

WITHOUT MANCS – 2/7 Arsenal; 6 Newcastle; 9 Spurs; 12 Chelsea


Papiss Cisse bagged yet another goal for Newcastle to take his total to 11 since he joined in January. Being just five goals behind his strike partner, William Hill are offering 10/1 that he outscores Demba Ba in Premier League goals by the end of the season (1/33 he does not).
Hills also go 4/7 that Cisse bags more goals between now and the end of the season than his fellow countryman (5/4 Ba).

Rodgers Versus Pardew For Boss Of Year ?


William Hill are betting on who will win the coveted LMA Manager of the Year Award and make Swansea’s Brendan Rodgers 6/4 favourite despite his side’s defeat by Spurs today. ‘Rodgers has impressed most observers by steering Swansea into Premier League mid-table’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe, ‘But he is likely to be pressed all the way by Newcastle’s Alan Pardew who guided his side to yet another notable victory against Liverpool’ – and Pardew has been cut from 5/1 to 7/2 second favourite as a result, with Hills also offering 6/1 Sir Alex Ferguson; 7/1 David Moyes; 8/1 Paul Lambert; 12/1 Harry Redknapp; 16/1 Coyle, Hodgson, Wenger.

SPURS and ARSENAL are both quoted at Even money by William Hill to finish top of the Premier League ‘Without the Manchester sides’ market, with Chelsea 7/1.
