7/2 For Blackburn’s Under Fire Trio To Leave Club

After the humiliating apology issued to Steve Kean and Morten Gamst Pedersen by Blackburn global advisor, Shebby Singh, William Hill are offering 7/2 that all three have left their positions by the end of the Championship season.

“It is no secret that Steve Kean is walking a tightrope after relegation last season but Shebby Singh has really turned the heat up on the manager now,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “His ill-advised comments about fans’ favourite, Morten Gamst Pedersen, however, have put Singh’s own position under threat.”

Blackburn are 10/1 joint fifth favourites to win the Championship behind favourites Bolton at 6/1 and Leicester at 7/1.

English Championship winner: 6/1 Bolton; 7/1 Leicester; 9/1 Leeds; 9/1 Wolves; 10/1 Blackburn; 10/1 Cardiff; 11/1 BAR

English Championship promotion: 7/4 Leicester; 2/1 Bolton; 5/2 Wolves; 3/1 Leeds; 4/1 Blackburn; 4/1 Cardiff; 4/1 Nottingham Forest; 5/1 BAR

8/13 City/united Forecast…tevez May Be Kicking His Heels For Some While Yet

Manchester City made relatively light work of Blackburn and William Hill are offering 8/15 that they win the league. Their nearest rivals, Manchester United, are 13/8 to win the league. Hills are offering 8/13 for Manchester City to finish first with their rivals in second.

Carlos Tevez was nowhere to be seen as City lined up to face Blackburn and despite his apology, he may face a thankless task getting his old spot back seeing as Dzeko, Balotelli and Aguero all netted. William Hill are offering odds on when he will next don a City shirt and offer 11/4 that it is when they face Bolton on the 3rd March, 5/2 Swansea, 7/2 Chelsea, 5/1 Stoke and 11/2 Sunderland. He is 3/1 to take no part in any of these games. He is, however, 1/8 to play for City this season (9/2 not to).

“Tevez’s apology has paved the way for a return to action, but he may have to wait a while as there are three strikers ahead of him bang in form,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Premier League outright: 8/15 Manchester City; 13/8 Manchester United; 20/1 Spurs; 200/1 Chelsea; 250/1 Arsenal; 1000/1 Liverpool

Premier League top four finish: 1/300 Manchester City; 1/200 Manchester United; 1/14 Tottenham; 8/11 Chelsea; 13/8 Arsenal; 3/1 Liverpool; 12/1 Newcastle; 100/1 Sunderland; 125/1 BAR

Premier League relegation: 1/3 Wigan (9/4 to stay up); 4/6 Wolves (11/10); 8/11 Blackburn (1/1); 8/11 Bolton (1/1); 5/6 QPR (5/6); 14/1 BAR

Top London club: 1/8 Tottenham; 7/1 Chelsea; 10/1 Arsenal

Winner without Manchester: 1/8 Tottenham; 7/1 Chelsea; 10/1 Arsenal; 40/1 Liverpool

To finish bottom: 13/8 Wigan; 10/3 Wolves; 10/3 Bolton; 4/1 QPR; 4/1 Blackburn

Fabio Backed To Go Before End Of World Cup

PUNTERS BET FABIO WILL BE OUT BEFORE END OF WORLD CUP

William Hill have slashed their odds for Fabio Capello to be an ex-England manager before the end of the World Cup from 10/3 to 2/1 after a rush of bets for the Italian to walk away or be sacked during the tournament.
‘We had to slash the odds rapidly as punters poured cash on Fabio to go – noone at all wanted to take the current odds of 4/11 that he will still be in place when the World Cup is over – as far as England fans are concerned it is now a case of when will Fabi-go rather than if he will go’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
ALTHOUGH Roy Hodgson is being linked with the Liverpool job, William Hill believe he would be a leading candidate should Fabio Capello’s World Cup end in early elimination and dismissal or resignation as England boss.
Hills have installed Hodgson and Harry Redknapp as 3/1 joint favourites to succeed Capello as England boss; ‘Many people believe Hodgson should have got the job when Sven beat him to it and little that has happened since suggests that the Fulham boss wouldn;t have made a worse job of England than those who have since held the post’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
**Capello is 10/3 with Hills to cease to be England boss before the end of the World Cup.

William Hill…TO SUCCEED FABIO AS PERMANENT ENGLAND BOSS:

Hodgson 3/1
Redknapp 3/1
Mourinho 5/1
Wenger 10/1
Pearce 10/1
Shearer 33/1
Beckham 50/1

YOU BET ROONEY WILL BE SORRY AGAIN!

WAYNE ROONEY is 6/1 with William Hill to have to issue ANOTHER official apology for some trangression during England’s game against Slovenia. ‘After the booing incident, for which he had had to formally apologise, we wouldn’t be surprised if there was another incident of similar type should England under-perform again on Wednesday’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. Hills have already cut their odds for Rooney to be red-carded in the game against Slovenia from 33/1 to 20/1.

William Hill ARE BETTING ON WHETHER ANDY MURRAY WILL BE KNOCKED OUT OF WIMBLEDON BEFORE ENGLAND GO OUT OF THE WORLD CUP – AND OFFER 4/7 THAT MURRAY WILL BE THE FIRST TO GO OUT, 5/4 THAT IT WILL BE ENGLAND.
