Managerial Movement Odds

SLAV FOR PREM

WITH SLAVEN Bilic announcing he will step down as Croatia manager after Euro 2012, William Hill offer 20/1 that he will be a Premier League manager on the first day of next season and 6/1 that he will become one at any stage of the new season.

RDM STILL HOT FAV FOR CHELSEA JOB

DESPITE reports that Roberto di Matteo will not automatically be handed the Chlesea job on a permanent basis even if they win the Champions League final, Wiliam Hill still make him 4/7 favourite to get the job permanently and also offer 11/2 Guardiola; Mourinho; 10/1 Benitez; Blanc; Capello; Redknapp; 14/1 Low; Moyes. ‘RDM appears to have ever improving credentials to get the job but recent history suggests he may well not do so’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

STALE STORY AT WOLVES?

Norwegian Stale Solbakken is the surprise 5/6 favourite to be handed the Wolves’ managerial job on a permanent basis with William Hill who also offer 6/1 Bruce; Ferguson; Poyet; Reid; Strachan; 7 Clark; 8 Connor; Freedman; Megson. Others on request.

TWO HORSE RACE FOR ROY’S ROLE

William Hill believe either Even money favourite Claudio Ranieri or 5/4 second favourite Chris Hughton will land the job of permanent replacement for new England boss Roy Hodgson at WBA. Hills also offer 6/1 Appleton; 8 Mowbray; Poyet; 16 Curbishley. ‘The money is all for the front two in the market and it is difficult to see past them at the moment’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Blanc Cut For Chelsea Job…4/1 Phantom Penalties At Old Trafford…1000/1 Ben Arfa Ballon D’or

Laurent Blanc has been cut from 12/1 to 7/1 to become the next Chelsea boss after various news reports indicating that Roman Abrahmovic is desperate to land the Frenchman as AVB’s permanent replacement. Jose Mourinho is the 9/4 favourite with Roberto Di Matteo 10/3 and Pep Guardiola 9/2. Claudio Ranieri has been sacked as Inter manager and William Hill are offering 3/1 that Andre Villas Boas gets the job.

“Because of what he did at Porto, AVB’s stock is still pretty high despite his nightmare stint at Chelsea and he could be quickly back on the managerial merry-go-round,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Manchester United moved three points clear at the top of the Premier League thanks to referee, Michael Oliver, missing what seemed like a blatant penalty and William Hill are offering 4/1 for any opposition team to win a penalty at Old Trafford during the rest of the season.

“Phantom penalties are nothing new at Old Trafford and the odds suggest that opposition sides will be up against it again,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Having moved three points clear, Hills are now offering a market on how many points Manchester United win the League by. They are 9/4 to fail to win the League and 11/2 to win the league on goal difference. They are 11/4 to win by one to three points and the same price to win by four to six points. They are 4/1 to win the League by seven or more points.

Papiss Demba Cisse has claimed that Hatem Ben Arfa is as good as Messi when he plays at his best but William Hill think the mercurial Frenchman has a way to go to reach those levels, offering 1000/1 that he wins the Ballon D’Or this season, compared to 2/7 Messi and 3/1 Ronaldo.

William Hill Odds:

Next Permanent Chelsea Boss: 9/4 Jose Mourinho; 10/3 Roberto Di Matteo; 9/2 Pep Guardiola; 7/1 Laurent Blanc; 8/1 Joachim Low; 8/1 Rafael Benitez; 10/1 David Moyes; 11/1 Fabio Capello; 20/1 BAR

3/1 AVB to become next Inter Milan manager

How many points will Man Utd win the league by?
Not win the league 9/4
Goal difference 11/2
1-3 points 11/4
4-6 points 11/4
7 points or more 4/1

4/1 Any away side to be awarded a penalty at Old Trafford for the remainder of the season

Ballon D’Or 2012: 2/7 Messi; 3/1 Ronaldo; 1000/1 Ben Arfa
