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

FERGIE’S OLYMPIC GRIPE

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)
0-1…..8/1
2-3…..7/4
4-5…..7/4
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

CISSE 4/7 TO PUT ONE OVER THE BA!

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).

Hills Banking On An Olympic Year

(2012 Sporting Betting Specials)

Quite unsurprisingly the head of William Hill’s 2012 Sport’s Personality betting is dominated by Olympians with Jess Ennis the 6/1 favourite followed by Rebecca Adlinton, Mo Farah and Andy Murray at 10/1. Ennis is 6/4 to win gold in the Heptathlete and if she does so, she would seem to be a shoo in for the Award. Mo Farah is 2/1 to win a gold medal at the games. A man who may not be in the running for Sports Personalitybut may be in the running for an Olympic appearance is Dwain Chambers. Hills make him 1/2 to take part in the Olympics for Team GB and NI but with Usain Bolt odds-on, at 8/11 to win both the 100m and the 200m, gold would surely be out of his grasp.

“The Olympics is the most keenly anticipated British sporting event since the European Championships were here in 1996 and the fact that the top of our Sports Personality betting is almost exclusively Olympians, reflects this,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Saying this however, that is not to say that there are no other exciting sporting events this year and we are looking forward to 2012.”

Do Football Gods Have More Heartbreak For England Fans In 2012?

2011 was hardly a vintage year for British football, highlighted by the lack of trinkets and nominations for the BBC Sports Personality, but William Hill think that 2012 could be different, offering 7/2 that any footballer wins the 2012 award. With the European Championships taking place in the Summer of 2012, Hills currently make England 7/1 to win the favourites behind Spain 9/4, Germany 7/2 and level with Holland. Germany’s Mario Gomez is the 7/1 favourite to be the tournament’s leading goalscorer just ahead of David Villa, currently out with a fractured leg, at 9/1. Hills also offer 250/1 that the competition’s final is contested between England and the Republic of Ireland.

“With the Euros taking place in an Olympic year, it will be very difficult for the England players to steal the limelight unless they were to win the tournament,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “We think that there are teams more well suited to winning and it could well be another season of heartbreak for English football fans.”

William Hill are also offering 11/4 that 2012 is the year that Sir Alex Ferguson finally steps down from his seat at Manchester United and having experienced tricky starts to their careers Hills offer 4/1 that Fernando Torres returns to Liverpool and 11/2 that Andy Carroll goes back to Newcastle. The record for goals in a Premier League game is 9 and Hills go 10/1 that this is broken in 2012, while 25/1 is offered for any player to break the record of five goals scored by an individual in a single game.

Now Hodgson Favourite To Be Next Prem Boss Out

NOW HODGSON FAVOURITE TO BE NEXT BOSS OUT

AFTER Liverpool’s home defeat by bottom of the table Wolves, Roy Hodgson has replaced Avram Grant as 7/4 favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his club, cutting him from 9/4. ‘With Hodgson asking supporters to back him, and results worsening it is difficult to see an early way back to acceptance by the fans and he may just decide that this is a classic case of right man, wrong club and walk away before he is sacked’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

HOULLIER ODDS-ON TO SURVIVE – JUST!

William Hill offer odds of 8/11 that Gerrard Houllier will still be Villa manager on the first day of next season – and Even money that he will not. ‘Houllier has not recovered from his terribly inappropriate comments when Villa played Liverpool, and with results the way are he has already forfeited a great deal of fan backing. In his favour is the very short amount of time he’d been in charge which enables him to say what he’s doing is a work in progress’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills have also opened a book on where Villa will finish this season and they are just 9/2 to end up in the bottom three, which would almost certainly doom Houllier to departure:

Hills….VILLA FINISHING POSITION:
Bottom 3……9/2
14th – 17th….3/1
11th – 13th….7/4
7th – 10th…..9/4
Top 6………..10/1

WHAT PRICE A WINTER BREAK?….William Hill offer 10/3 that a compulsory Premier League ‘winter-break’ of two weeks or more will be introduced in or before the end of the 2013-14 season and 1/5 that no such break will be implemented. ‘Pressure is growing for a winter-break but it will be difficult to persuade vested interests that it is worthwhile’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

BOOKIES RUNNING SCARED OF BLACKPOOL

BLACKPOOL fans have staked so many bets on their side to WIN the Premier League title this season that William Hill have had to slash their odds by a record EIGHT THOUSAND points in their betting – and now offer them at 2000/1 to win the title, having opened their book at 10,000/1. ‘We now face our biggest ever Premier League loss of OVER £5million if Blackpool somehow manage to win the League after hundreds of fans backed their side -albeit none of them risked more than a tenner’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.’We won’t be losing much sleep over the prospect of that five million loss – at least, not until Blackpool win their first half dozen matches!’
Meanwhile, Hills say that they are in the bizarre position of wanting the reigning champions to do well this season, as they have taken very little cash for Chelsea to win the title again – and they currently represent the BEXT possible outcome for them. ‘We will win a hefty sum if Chelsea retain the title as the betting stands at the moment’ added Sharpe.
The second worst result for Hills would be a title triumph for Aston Villa – ‘most of those bets were struck before O’Neill walked out’- while Manchester United would be the third worst result for them, as they have attracted the largest bets so far – one of £10,000 froma Glasgow-based punter and a £6000 bet from a Norwich client.

Premiership: Are Big Four Still Big Four?!

The odds suggest that there is to be a changing of the guard in the Premiership with the original big four out to 4/1 to finish the coming season as the top four. Liverpool are out to 2/1 to be in the top four come the end of the season with Man city expected to spoil the party for the old guard and they are 1/3 to grab a top four spot.

“In our opinion the Premiership has never been more open with perhaps six genuine contenders for the title and the old Big Four might just be a thing of the past!” said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.

Chelsea: 1/25 Yes, 9/1 No
Man Utd: 1/20 Yes, 8/1 No
