Managerial Merry Go Round Slowing Down As Avb Becomes Spurs Fav

Michael Laudrup has been appointed as boss of Swansea and William Hill are betting on how his troops fare without the guiding influence of Brendan Rodgers. Hills offer 4/11 that they finish lower than the 11th that they finished last season, 3/1 they finish higher than that and 6/1 they finish exactly 11th.

“Swansea we described as the Barecelona of the Premier League last season and given Laudrup’s Barca history, the transition between managers should be seamless,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “It could be argued, however, that under Rodgers, Swansea overachieved and whether they can do that again this season is questionable.”

Andre Villas Boas is the 11/8 new favourite for the Spurs job with William Hill although, two outsiders are really catching the eye. Martin Jol has been backed in from a 33/1 to 16/1 after being well backed in the last 24 hours and Jurgen Klinsmann is in to 8/1 from 12/1 after a punter in Newcastle walked into a William Hill shop and placed £200 on the former Spurs legend getting the gig.

“Despite being the early favourite, Moyes is on the drift a bit and more contenders are coming to light each day,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “It would seem that this one has a long way to run yet.”

Where will Swansea finish in 2012/13: 4/11 lower than 11th; 6/1 exactly 11th; 3/1 higher than 11th

Next permanent Tottenham manager: 11/8 Andre Villas Boas; 2/1 David Moyes; 7/2 Roberto Martinez; 8/1 Rafa Benitez; 8/1 Fabio Capello; 8/1 Jurgen Klinsmann; 12/1 Martin Jol; 16/1 Alan Pardew; 16/1 Gus Poyet; 16/1 Pep Guardiola; 16/1 Tim Sherwood; 20/1 Martin O’Neill; 20/1 Jose Mourinho; 25/1 BAR

Spurs Finishing position: 9/2 1-3; 7/2 fourth; 4/7 5-8; 5/2 9-17; 250/1 relegation

Redknapp Stays At Spurs For Now But Moyes Waiting In The Wings

The twittersphere was awash with rumours of Harry Redknapp quitting Spurs – rumours that were quickly silenced by the man himself, but what if they were true? William Hill have made David Moyes the 5/4 favourite to become the next permanent Spurs boss with Roberto Martinez 4/1 second favourite. Harry is 4/1 for his next job to be an international one, although on the back of reported rumours last summer of interest from the Middle East, Al Ahly are 6/1 to be his next destination.

Al-Ahly 6/1
Chelsea 6/1
Everton 7/1
Swansea 8/1

Goal-line Technology Now 11/4 For Next Season…champions League Latest

Spurs were on the receiving end of a controversial decision at Wembley on Sunday and Sepp Blatter has revealed that FIFA are willing to experiment with goal-line technology in June and William Hill are offering 11/4 that it is in place for the start of the Premier League next season (1/4 it is not).

Another controversial decision came at Old Trafford where Ashley Young won his second dubious penalty in as many weeks and William Hill are offering 3/1 that he is booked for simulation during the run in to the season.

Despite Tottenham’s recent slump in form, culminating in their 5-1 defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup, Harry Redknapp is 1/4 to become the next England manager, with Roy Hodgson 4/1 and Stuart Pearce 6/1.

“Since Capello left England, seemingly thrusting Redknapp into the seat overnight, Spurs have won just once,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “As the old adage goes though, form is temporary, class is permanent.”

Chelsea now have a two legged affair against Barcelona to contest and Hills offer 12/1 that they win the Champions League AND the FA Cup.

Di Matteo has only seen one defeat since he took over as Chelsea boss, but despite this, he is the 11/4 second favourite to become the next permanent Chelsea boss with Hills who go 2/1 Benitez and 11/4 Mourinho.

The Champions League semi finals kick off on Tuesday and William Hill make Barcelona the 6/5 favourites to be the highest scoring team of the four this week, with Real Madrid 5/2, Bayern Munich 11/4 and Chelsea 9/2.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lional Messi both reached the landmark of 41 goals in La Liga and William Hill make Ronaldo the 4/5 favourite to end the season as the leading scorer in Spain, Messi is just behind at 10/11.

La Liga Top Goalscorer: 4/5 Cristiano Ronaldo; 10/11 Lionel Messi

Goal Line Technology to be introduced by the start of next season: 11/4 yes; 1/4 no

Chelsea Latest…champions League Outright To Follow

Roberto Di Matteo has been cut from 8/1 to 5/1 third favourite to become the next Chelsea boss after his side’s valiant comeback against Napoli. Fernando Torres failed to find the net again (in the 90 minutes of the game) but William Hill make him 8/13 to finally break his 2012 duck, although he is 6/5 to fail to score during the next four games.

“Torres missed an open goal during extra time and his confidence will have plummeted even further,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Saying that, Leicester this weekend offer the perfect opportunity for him to get back on track.”

Chelsea are now three in three under Di Matteo and Hills offer 2/1 that they are undefeated in their next four games, although they are 5/6 for their first defeat to come at the hands of Manchester City.

When will Torres next score: 8/13 Leicester; 7/1 Manchester City; 9/1 Spurs; 10/1 Villa; 6/5 none of these four

When will Chelsea lose first under Di Matteo: 7/1 Leicester; 5/6 Manchester City; 13/2 Spurs; 8/1 Villa; 2/1 none of these four

Will Roberto Di Matteo be manager on the last day of the season: 1/4 yes; 11/4 no

Next Permanent Chelsea manager: 7/4 Mourinho; 4/1 Benitez; 5/1 Di Matteo; 6/1 Pep Guardiola; 9/1 Low; 9/1 Capello; 10/1 Moyes; 20/1 BAR

Hills make Jose Mourinho 3/1 second favourite and also offer 6/1 Di Matteo; 7/1 Guardiola;8/1 Capello; 12 Moyes; 16 Poyet; Deschamps;Hiddink.’All the early cash has been for Benitez, with bets of up to £300 coming in for him – perhaps it was the many customers who backed AVB not to see out the season reinvesting their winnings’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
