City Steal Title March…8/15 To Win On Goal Difference

Manchester City took a vital win in the battle to land the Premier League and William Hill now make the blue half of Manchester 4/9 to be celebrating come the end of the season. Manchester United are 13/8. Despite the defeat, Hills make Ferguson 8/15 to outlast Mancini (11/8 not to). City now lead on goal difference and they are 8/15 to win the title in that way (United are 14/1 to do so).

“Manchester City have now stolen a march on their rivals with the finishing post firmly in sight, but a tricky fixture at Newcastle could well see their title ambitions tempered,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

A fantastic night of football was highlighted by the fact that Hills took well over a million pounds on the night and over 40,000 bets on the 90 minutes market alone. Over 20,000 bets were staked online in-running.

“Phew, our compilers deserve a rest after that,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “We were expecting a busy one but that far exceeded anyone’s expectations.”

Premier League outright: 4/9 City; 13/8 Utd

Win the title on goal difference: 8/15 City; 14/1 United

Who will leave first: 8/15 Mancini; 11/8 Ferguson

6/1 Megson To Be Last Prem Boss To Go This Season

6/1 MEGSON TO BE LAST PREM BOSS TO GO THIS SEASON

William Hill have opened a book on how many more Premier League managers will follow Gary Megson out of their psitions this season – and offer 6/1 that he will be the last to go. ‘With the January transfer window looming up, clubs may consider that there is little point switching managers afterwards, so if we don’t see more departures within the next few weeks that may just be it for the season. However, chairmen are also capable of coming up with different reasons for disposing of out of favour managers, so I suspect we’ll take plenty of money at 20/1 for another four or more to go – particularly as several clubs appear to have severe financial problems.’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills – HOW MANY MORE PREM BOSSES WILL GO BEFORE END OF CAMPAIGN?
0 6/1
1 11/10
2 7/4
3 7/1

WILL PAUL LOVE TO GO A-WANDERING DOWN BOLTON WAY?

REID MY LIPS – PETER BEST BACKED BOLTON BOY

PETER REID has been the heaviest backed contender for the Bolton job with William Hill who have now cut his odds from 10/1 when the book opened on Wednesday, to 9/4 favourite. ‘Reid is now a potential four figure loser for us after a flurry of support during the day, but he is still not being backed as though he was on the verge of taking the job, so we think this race has some way to go yet’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Favourite when the day started, Paul Jewell is now Hill’s 4/1 second favourite, and they also offer 6/1 Darren Ferguson; 7/1 Mark Hughes; 10/1 Alan Curbishley Owen Coyle; 14/1 Gary Speed; 16/1 Steve Coppell; Ian Dowie; Walter Zenga.
