Carroll 8/13 To Leave Liverpool And 8/11 To Rejoin Newcastle

Andy Carroll is now 8/13 to leave Liverpool this summer and Newcastle have moved firmly to the top of the pile to be his next club. William Hill have made the Magpies odds-on to sign their former player at 8/11. Sam Allardyce has made no secret of his desire to sign Carroll and he is 7/2 to lure him to West Ham. Other teams in the running include Aston Villa and Fulham at 9/1 and AC Milan at 12/1.

“Newcastle appear ready to break their transfer record to get the man that they sold just 18 months ago and it is starting to look more and more likely that Andy Carroll is on his way,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Dimitar Berbatov has stated his assertion that he needs to be playing first team football and may have to move to get it. Malaga are the 7/4 favourites to sign him, although West Ham, are offered at 9/4 after they reportedly made an offer for the striker. Galatasaray have reportedly shown some interest in signing him, while AC Milan may look to replace Ibrahimovic with the mercurial United player. They are 5/1 and 8/1 respectively.

The UEFA Player of the Year shortlist was announced yesterday with a surprising nomination. Leslie Davies, the Bangor City forward. He is 1000/1 for the award but the main runners come from Spain. Lionel Messi is 6/5 for the award with his Barcelona team mate Andres Iniesta is 9/4.

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is 8/1 despite firing Real Madrid to La Liga glory. Xavi is 12/1 after winning the Euro’s with Spain and Euro 2012 finalist and Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo is 14/1.

Berbatov next club: 7/4 Malaga; 9/4 West Ham; 5/1 Galatasaray; 8/1 AC Milan; 10/1 QPR; 12/1 Bayer Leverkusen; 12/1 PSG; 12/1 Tottenham; 14/1 Inter Milan; 16/1 Borussia Dortmund; 25/1 Anzhi Makhachkala; 25/1 Chelsea; 33/1 Liverpool; 33/1 Newcastle; 40/1 Manchester City

Andy Carroll next club: 8/11 Newcastle; 7/2 West Ham; 9/1 Aston Villa; 9/1 Fulham; 12/1 AC Milan; 16/1 Malaga; 20/1 Arsenal; 20/1 PSG; 20/1 Tottenham; 25/1 BAR

Andy Carroll to still be at Liverpool on the first day of 2012/13 season: 8/13 no; 6/5 yes

UEFA Player of The Year: 6/5 L Messi, 9/4 A Iniesta, 8/1 C Ronaldo, 12/1 Xavi, 14/1 A Pirlo, 1000/1 L Davies

Odds On Goal-line Technology Cut As Spurs Drift In Top London Club Market!

QPR were denied a vital goal in their relegation battle against Bolton and are now 1/3 with William Hill to be relegated at the end of the season. Mark Hughes’ reign has got off to a less than auspicious start to say the least and Hills are offering 11/10 that he is no longer QPR boss come the first day of their 2012/13 season(4/6 that he is still there).

Hughes’ odds of departure have changed drastically since yesterday’s defeat and should QPR be relegated, it could well be traced back to that phantom goal. Hills have cut their odds of goal-line technology being introduced following solid punter support and offer 11/4 that the Premier League sees goal-line technology next season.

“After such a vital ‘goal’ was chalked off yesterday, the goal-line technology argument has once again reared its head and it looks as though a resolution may finally be around the corner, but all maybe too little too late for Hughes and QPR” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Spurs have now lost two matches on the spin and with Arsenal starting to fire on all cylinders, Hills only make Tottenham slight favourites at 8/13 to be the top London club at the end of the season with Arsenal 9/4 and Chelsea 7/2.

William Hill Odds:

Goal-Line Technology to be introduced by the start of the 2012/13 season: 11/4 yes; 1/4 no

Which league will be the first to introduce goal-line technology: 13/8 SPL; 11/4 EPL; 4/1 Bundesliga; 11/2 La Liga; 7/1 Ligue 1; 8/1 Serie A; 10/1 Eredivisie

Hughes to be manager of QPR on the first day of next season: 4/6 yes; 11/10 no

Premier League relegation: 2/9 Wigan; 3/10 Wolves; 1/3 QPR; 11/8 Bolton; 13/8 Blackburn; 25/1 BAR

Premier League to stay up: 4/9 Blackburn; 8/15 Bolton; 9/4 QPR; 12/5 Wolves; 3/1 Wigan

Top London Club: 8/13 Tottenham; 9/4 Arsenal; 7/2 Chelsea

Martin Not So Jol – Y Well Off ?

Fulham boss survival odds cut:
NOT SO JOL-Y GOOD?

FULHAM’s exit from the Europa League, their lowly Premier League position, and reported rifts between the manager and certain players have seen the odds for him to be the next Premier League manager to leave his club this season cut from 20/1 to 12/1 fifth favourite by William Hill who now also offer 6/4 that he will no longer be in charge at Craven Cottage on the first day of next season. ‘Martin Jol seemed to have taken over a Fulham side in decent shape, but not much has gone right for them this season and if they fail to beat struggling Bolton at the weekend, he will come under serious pressure from the fans’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Share.
Hills currently offer Fulham at 9/1 to be relegated and 33/1 to finish bottom of the table.

William Hill…Next Premier League manager to leave his club: 8/11 Kean; 2/1 Coyle; 6/1 Martinez; 8/1 AVB; 12/1 Jol; McLeish; McCarthy; 33/1 no more to go this season.

Arsene’s Crisis And Transfer Specials…fa(cebook) Cup Odds

Arsenal are having a torrid time of things at the moment with players wanting out, injuries and suspensions. Hills predict that they will struggle to take many points from the next two games (against Liverpool and Manchester United) offering 7/2 they get none and 9/4 just one. Arsenal will need to strengthen if they are to challenge for any honours this year and Hills offer 13/8 that Wenger makes four or more signings before the end of the transfer window. Samir Nasri is 1/12 to leave Arsenal by the end of the transfer window and 6/1 to remain at the Emirates. Arsenal are 1/6 to finish another season with no silverware.

“Arsene is already under pressure and the odds suggest that Arsenal could feasibly have just one point after their first three games,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Wesley Sneijder looks as though his move to Manchester United may be drawing ever closer with Hills making him 8/11 to now make the move from Italy. He is Evens to stay with Inter. Luka Modric has been the subject of a new bid from Chelsea and he is 8/13 to make the Blues his next club.

Facebook is to screen its first ever football match live, an extra-preliminary FA Cup qualifier between Ascot United vs Wembley FC. William Hill make the hosts the 11/10 favourites to win the match, while Wembley are 7/4 for victory. The draw is 5/2.

Arsenal points in next two games: 8/1 six; 7/2 four; 2/1 three; 9/4 one; 7/2 none

Number of Arsenal signings before the end of the transfer window: 7/4 0-1; 6/4 2 or three; 13/8 four or more
*must be a professional senior contract

Arsenal Trophies: 1/6 None

Luka Modric next permanent club: 8/13 Chelsea; 5/2 Manchester United; 9/1 Arsenal; 10/1 Manchester City; 20/1 Barcelona; 20/1 Real Madrid

In the first leg match, Arsenal are 4/11 favourites, while Udinese are 6/1 and the draw is 3/1. Arsenal are 20/1 to win the Champions League.

“Udinese have shipped off their two best players and Arsenal are favourites at the moment, but with the uncertainty still surrounding the futures of Fabregas and Nasri, the match-up could be a lot closer than the initial odds suggest,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Fabregas is currently 1/4 to have left Arsenal by the end of the summer transfer window, with Barcelona his likely destination. Nasri is 6/4 to have left Arsenal in the same time frame, with Manchester City 8/13 to be his next club. Manchester United are 6/5.

Charles N’zogbia: You Bet A Good Bit Of Business By Villa

Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of Charles N’Zogbia from Wigan and William Hill think he will have a better season than the player he was brought in to replace, Stewart Downing. Hills go 8/11 that N’Zogbia starts more Premier League games than Downing, while Downing is 11/8 to start more than the Frenchman.

Hills also go 4/7 about N’Zogbia scoring more goals than Downing, who is 8/5.

“If reports are to be believed, Villa have made a profit of around £10 million by selling Downing and bringing in N’Zogbia and it appears that the new Clarets wide man may well be utilised more this season than the man that he has replaced,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Hills are offering a number of next club specials on some of the higher profile players being talked about in this summer’s transfer window. Real Madrid are the 4/6 favourites to be the next club to capture Neymar’s signature, while Arsenal are 1/3 to be Juan Mata’s next club. There has been plenty of speculation recently about Carlos Tevez and Hills offer 13/8 that Internazionale are his next club, while Juventus are 7/2.

William Hill are offering a market on whether the all four of the Premier League’s high profile want away players leave their clubs by the end of the Summer transfer window. Hills go 9/2 about all four of Tevez, Nasri, Fabregas and Modric having left their clubs by the 31st August 2011 .

Hills are also offering 6/4 that Cesc Fabregas is the first of the four to go, while Carlos Tevez is 13/8 to do so. It would appear that Arsenal have more hope of keeping Nasri than Fabregas and he is offered at 10/3 to be the first of the four to go, while Modric is 6/1.

“With no lack of interest in the four players, it could well be that all four have moved on by the end of August,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Wenger To Go To War With City Over Nasri

News reports suggest that Roberto Mancini has hardly endeared himself to his opposite number at Arsenal over a perceived lack of respect relating to Samir Nasri. Hill’s feel that Mr. Wenger’s suspicions may have weight to them, offering 8/13 that Nasri’s next club is Manchester City, while they go 6/5 about him moving to the red side of Manchester.

“The continuing saga surrounding Nasri’s future has turned ugly with the odds suggesting that he may well be turning out in the blue of City before too long,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Hills are also offering betting on where the two clubs finish following Arsenal being pipped into fourth by City. The odds indicate that City will finish higher than the Gunners once again with Mancini’s men odds on at 8/13 to finish in the top two and 1/2 to finish above Arsenal.

William Hill Mancini vs Wenger Odds:

Samir Nasri Next Club: 8/13 Manchester City; 6/5 Manchester United; 8/1 Chelsea; 25/1 Real Madrid; 33/1 AC Milan

Cesc Fabregas Next Club: 1/4 Barcelona; 7/2 Real Madrid; 8/1 Manchester City
