Gamble On Arsene To Stay At Arsenal…fa Cup Specials

Arsenal fans have been rallying around Arsene Wenger since their humiliating midweek defeat and in the last 48 hours, his odds of still being at the club have been backed from 8/11 to 8/13 with William Hill. Hills have also seen support for both Wenger and Robin van Persie to still be at Arsenal on the first day of next season, offered at 15/8 having previously been 2/1 (3/1 to leave). Theo Walcott has been pinpointed as one of the main underperformers at Arsenal this season and he is 7/2 to have left Arsenal by the first day of next season.

Bookies Hail Gunners’ Multi Million Mix Up As Arsenal Odds On To Win Zilch – Again.

Arsenal odds-on to win nothing – again!
BOOKIES HAIL ARSENAL’S MULTI MILLION MIX-UP

THE Arsenal defensive mix-up which cost them the Carling Cup was worth £10 million to bookies. ‘We faced a seven figure payout had Arsenal gone on to win the Quadruple and as much again had they lifted the Carling Cup itself, so that defensive mix-up was a £10million bonus for the bookmaking industry’ said William Hill spokesman Graham Sharpe.’Punters had plunged cash on Arsenal as though defeat was out of the question – but Alex McLeish – and Ben Foster – found the answer.’
AND Hills NOW MAKE ARSENAL ODDS ON TO ENDURE YET ANOTHER SEASON WITH NO TROPHIES. Hills offer 8/15 that the Gunners will finish the season trophy-less once more, but quote them at 80/1 to win the three remaining trophies they are contesting.
ARSENE WENGER is 9/1 with Hills to cease to be Arsenal manager by the first day of next season, but 1/25 to remain in place. ‘Just how long will the Arsenal fans remain loyal to Arsene Wenger if his trophy-less run continues’ asked Hill’s spokesman Sharpe.
