Wigan Primed For Drop As They Let Lead Slip…swans Flying To Europe…championship Latest

Wigan briefly moved out of the bottom three as they went one goal up on West Brom, although an equaliser for Roy Hodgson’s men, saw the Latics remain in the bottom three. William Hill make them 1/5 to be relegated at the end of the season, 10/3 to stay up and 11/10 to finish bottom of the Premier League.

Swansea continued to impress, defeating Fulham at Craven Cottage and having all but guaranteed themselves Premier League football next season, can start to look up the table. William Hill are offering 16/1 that they finish the season in the top six and finish their first Premier League season with European football.

With only two games taking place in the Premier League on Saturday, the best of the action was to be found in the Championship where Reading briefly topped the table before a rousing comeback from Southampton saw them reclaim top spot and William Hill make the Saints the Even money favourites to win the League, with Reading 2/1 and West Ham 5/2.

Premier League Weekend Specials

***********************William Hill PREMIER LEAGUE WEEKEND SPECIALS********************************

10/1 ANY PREM BOSS TO GO BY MIDNIGHT SUNDAY…

William Hill offer 10/1 that any Premier League manager (or caretaker boss) will quit their club before midnight on Sunday. ‘Although we are currently 13/8 that no more managers will depart this season, it is not impossible to envisage a manager suddenly walking away after (yet another) catastrophic defeat’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills go 13/8 that no more Premier League managers will leave their clubs before the end of the season, but Steve Kean is 9/2 to be the next to do so this campaign while Hills also offer 5/1 Coyle; Martinez; 6 McLeish; 16 Redknapp. Others on request.

WEEKEND FOOTBALL SPECIALS –

Any Premier League manager/caretaker manager to leave before midnight Sunday 11th March 10/1
**“Terry Connor & Roberto Di Matteo count as caretaker managers for the purposes of settlement.”

IN HOW MANY CONSECUTIVE MATCHES WILL FULHAM’S PAVEL POGREBNYAK SCORE? With Fulham’s new signing Pogrebnyak starting his Craven Cottage career with a flood of goals, William Hll are betting on how many consecutive games he will score in for his new side. ‘He looks as though he should be training to fight a Klitschko but has been landing knockout blows on Fulham’s opponents instead, and is 40/1 to hammer Villa with a second straight hat trick.’ Said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
3 1/3
4 3/1
5 6/1
6 20/1
7 28/1
8 or more 40/1

**“Only matches in which Pogrebnyak STARTS for Fulham will count for the purposes of settlement. Currently on 3.”

PODDS-ON FOR THE GUNNERS

William Hill have slashed their odds from 4/7 to 1/3 that Cologne and Germany striker Lukas Podolski will have joined Arsenal by day one of the next Premier League season – and now go 9/4 that he does not. But if he does arrive there he may find that Robin Van Persie has departed – after the in-form striker was backed from Even money to 5/6 with Hills to have left the club by the start of the next campaign, and lengthened from 8/11 to Evens still to be there. Boss Arsene Wenger is 2/5 still to be in charge on day one, 7/4 not to.
Hills are also betting on how many goals RVP will chalk up in the Prem this season – and make him 11/4 to set a new record of 35 or more. He is 14/1 to end up with 25; 6/1 26/27; 3/1 28/29; 3/1 30/31; 11/4 32/33; 5/2 34.

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.

William Hill Premier League Latest

LAST TO WIN/LAST TO LOSE

Blackburn’s failure to win at Craven Cottage means that they, along with hosts Fulham, remain as one of the five teams in the Premier League still to register a victory. Hills offer 23/10 that Blackburn are the last side in the division to get three points, while Fulham are 11/2 to do so. Swansea are the 21/10 favourites.

“It will start to get worrying for those teams at the bottom if they go much longer without a victory and every week, the relegation odds for those sides involved get shorter and shorter,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

At the other end of the table, there are six sides who are yet to be beaten, and Manchester United are 6/5 to go the longest without defeat. Manchester City are 2/1 with Chelsea 9/2.

Last team to lose a Prem match 2011/12: 6/5 Manchester United; 2/1 Manchester City; 9/2 Chelsea; 8/1 Aston Villa; 9/1 Newcastle; 12/1 Stoke

Jol – Y Good Or Jol – Y Bad ?

JOL-Y GOOD – OR JOL-Y POOR?

FIFTH TO EIGHTH is Hill’s 6/4 favourite for where Fulham will finish next season following the appointment of Martin Jol, who Hills quote at 7/2 still to be at the club as boss in 2015. ‘Jol has two difficult acts to follow after Messrs Hodgson and Hughes both did well at Fulham, but we expect to stay at Craven Cottage until at least 2013’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Where Will Fulham Finish Next Season?
9th to 12th 6/4

13th to 17th 11/4
Relegated 9/1

8/1 Hodgson To Return To Craven Cottage…or Will Banksy Hijacko Wacko?

Following the unveiling of Fulham’s rather bizarre Michael Jackson statue, bookmakers William Hill are betting on what will happen first to the effigy. Hills offer 6/1 that a pot of paint is thrown over it, while 8/1 is on offer for somebody to put a Roy Hodgson mask over Jacko’s face. Hills offer 20/1 that Banksy decorates the statue and 25/1 that his microphone is replaced by an umbrella.

“To say that the statue has not gone down well, would be an understatement and it would come as no surprise if somebody did decorate it in their own special way,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

What Will Happen To The Michael Jackson Statue:
6/1 Pot of paint thrown over it
8/1 Roy Hodgson mask put on it
10/1 Fulham shirt to be put on it
12/1 Glove hand to be chopped off
14/1 Chelsea shirt to be put on it
16/1 Head chopped off
20/1 For Banksy to ‘decorate’ the statue
25/1 To have the microphone replaced by an umbrella

Hughes Laughing Now: 2/1 City Fail To Score Once More

Sunday’s big game sees Mark Hughes facing his former cohorts with current team, Fulham. Hughes was sacked by Manchester City just over a year ago, with his City side leading the Premier League in draws. His Fulham team are in the exact same position this season and William Hill are offering 21/10 that Sunday’s match ends in a stalemate. With tempers likely to flare, Hughes is 33/1 to get sent to the stands.

City have failed to score in their last three Premiership games and Hills are offering 2/1 that they fail to do so once more at Craven Cottage. Should City score, it will most likely be Carlos Tevez who gets on the score sheet, having score seven of 15 goals. He is priced at 5/1 to score two or more goals with Hills.

“Mark Hughes will be desperate to get one over on his former employers but the odds certainly do not point to a classic. The most exciting action may possibly be seen on the sidelines,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill Sunday Football Odds:

11/8 Blackburn; 21/10 Aston Villa; 21/10 Draw
21/10 Fulham; 7/5 Man City; 21/10 Draw

33/1 Mark Hughes gets sent to the stand
5/1 Carlos Tevez scores two or more goals

William Hill have opened a book on who will succeed Roy Hodgson as permanent Fulham boss and make Alan Curbishley odds on favourite. ‘This would appear to be an ideal opportunity for ‘Curbs’ to get back into management’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. ‘However, Hodgson’s success at Craven Cottage could have made the job attractive to a higher echelon of managers than may previously have been the case.’
