Pardew Loses His Rag And Loses Punters Their Red Card Dough

Alan Pardew became the first Premier League manager sent to the stands and not one William Hill punter backed the Newcastle boss to see red which was offered at 16/1. The most popular selection was 6/1 favourite, Mark Hughes, who, despite his sides poor performance and the warm summer weather managed to remain relatively cool.

Mark Hughes is now the 10/1 favourite to be the next manager to be sent to the stands with David Moyes and Paul Lambert 11/1. Pardew has been cut slightly after his indiscretion to 14/1.

“Alan Pardew’s momentary loss of control will have everyone talking although the odds would suggest that he may well have learnt his lesson,” said Hill’ spokesman Joe Crilly.

Jermain Defoe scored for Spurs, but it was not enough to save his Spurs side from defeat and William Hill offer 11/8 that Emmanuel Adebayor arrives at Spurs before the end of the transfer window.

Next manager to be sent to the stands: 10/1 Mark Hughes; 11/1 David Moyes; 11/1 Paul Lambert; 12/1 Adre Villas Boas; 12/1 Martin O’Neill; 12/1 Roberto Mancini; 12/1 Sam Allardyce; 12/1 Tony Pulis; 12/1Arsene Wenger; 14/1 Alan Pardew; 16/1 Chris Hughton; 16/1 Martin Jol; 16/1 Michael Laudrup; 16/1 Nigel Adkins; 16/1 Steve Clarke; 20/1 Brendan Rodgers; 20/1 Brian McDermott; 20/1 Roberto Di Matteo; 20/1 Alex Ferguson; 25/1 Roberto Martinez

Jermain Defoe Premier League goals: 9/4 1-6; 6/4 7-12; 13/8 13-18; 10/1 19 or more

Adebayor to sign for Spurs before the end of the transfer window: 11/8 yes; 8/15 no

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

Moyes Favourite For Spurs Job But Could ‘arry Move To Monaco?

David Moyes is 10/11 to be named as the next Spurs boss after Harry Redknapp left the club in the early hours of Thursday morning. William Hill make Moyes the favourite followed by Roberto Martinez at 7/4. With the uncertainty surrounding Rangers at the moment, Ally McCoist could be out of a job in the next few days and he has entered the betting at 25/1.

“David Moyes has performed fantastically over the last ten years at Everton, but will surely feel that he has the ability to make the step up,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

All eyes will turn to where the outgoing Spurs boss will turn up and he is 3/1 to take an international job and 6/1 to make a return to newly promoted West Ham. Having been linked with a move to the Middle East in the past, he is 7/1 to go to Al Ahly. Should he want to move a bit closer to Rosie ’47, he is 50/1 for his next job to be in charge of Monaco.

Redknapp enjoyed a fine rapport with many of his players and his departure could spell the end of Tottenham careers for a number of their big names. Luka Modric, already the subject of interest from Chelsea and Manchester United to no longer be a Spurs player come the start of next season, with Bale 10/3 to have gone and van der Vaart 6/4.

Spurs fans must surely be fearing the worst and Hills make them odds on to finish between 5th and 8th and out of the Champions League spots. Fourth place was not good enough for Spurs this year and they are 7/2 to finish in fourth.

Next Spurs Manager: 10/11 David Moyes; 7/4 Roberto Martinez; 6/1 Rafa Benitez; 6/1 Jurgen Klinsmann; 7/1 Fabio Capello; 10/1 Andre Villas-Boas; 16/1 Alan Pardew; 16/1 Gus Poyet; 16/1 Pep Guardiola; 16/1 Jose Mourinho; 16/1Tim Sherwood; 20/1 Martin O’Neill; 20/1 Sam Allardyce; 25/1 Ally McCoist; 25/1 Owen Coyle; 25/1 Dider Deschamps; 25/1 Carlo Ancelotti; 25/1 Laurent Blanc; 25/1 Martin Jol; 25/1 Guus Hiddink; 33/1 BAR

Players to leave Spurs (to still be there): 1/6 Modric (7/2 still be there); 6/4 Defoe (1/2); 6/4 Van Der Vaart (1/2); 10/3 Bale (1/5); 7/2 Walker (1/6); 9/2 Lennon (1/8); 9/2 Dawson (1/8); 7/1 Parker (1/16)

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

7/4 Spurs Top Four finish

25/1 Spurs to win Premier League 2012/13

250/1 Spurs to be relegated 2012/13

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.

“Redknapp moved quickly to quash the rumours that he was on his way but there are still talks ongoing about his new contract and should he leave the club any time soon, it looks like Moyes is the frontrunner to replace him,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

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