Ac Milan Fans 6/1 To Be Carroll Singing Next Season

Andy Carroll’s name has rather surprisingly been linked with a loan move to AC Milan although William Hill do not think that particular move is on the cards, offering 1/12 that he does not make the move to the San Siro (to AC Milan). It does look likely that Carroll could make a move away from Anfield, whether on loan or permanently, with Hills offering 4/1 that he is not at Liverpool when the transfer window slams shut.

“Aquilani spent last season at AC Milan and despite the relations that may or may not have been built between the clubs because of that particular deal, we do not think a move for Andy Carroll is very likely,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Rumours suggesting that Roberto Mancini could be on his way from Manchester City may not be too wide of the mark, with William Hill making the Italian 11/2 to have left Eastlands by the time the season starts and Hills can also report that Mancini has been backed in from 33/1 to 4/1 favourite to be the first Premier League manager to leave his position.

Andy Carroll to be at AC Milan at end of transfer window: 6/1 yes; 1/12 no

Andy Carroll to have left Liverpool by the end of the transfer window: 4/1 yes; 1/7 no
*loan deals count

Roberto Mancini to be at Manchester City on the first day on 2012/13 season: 11/2 no; 1/10 yes

First Premier League manager to leave his job: 4/1 Roberto Mancini; 8/1 Sam Allardyce; 9/1 Chris Hughton; 9/1 Michael Laudrup; 9/1 Steve Clarke; 11/1 Brendan Rodgers; 11/1 Mark Hughes; 11/1 Nigel Adkins; 11/1 Roberto Di Matteo; 11/1 Roberto Martinez; 12/1 Martin Jol; 14/1 Paul Lambert; 16/1 Brian McDermott; 20/1 BAR

Au-revoir Allardyce: Avb 20/1 First Man Out!

The Premiership off season has probably never seen so much managerial movement and the latest odds from William Hill suggest that many will not be given much time to deliver. Hills are offering 11/8 that six or more managers leave their current roles during the season and 10/1 that either none or one go!

Sam Allardyce is the 8/1 favourite to be first out of the door, with Chris Hughton, Michael Laudrup and Steve Clarke all 9/1. The new Spurs manager, Andre Villas-Boas, is 20/1 to be first out with Sir Alex Ferguson the 100/1 outsider.

“With so much early movement you would think there would be very few moves in the season but as we all know, football is a results driven business and there aren’t too many second chances in the Premiership! said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.

First Premier League Manager to Leave: 8/1 S Allardyce, 9/1 C Hughton, 9/1 M Laudrup, 9/1 S Clarke, 10/1 P Lambert, 11/1 B Rodgers, 11/1 M Hughes, 11/1 N Adkins, 11/1 R Di Matteo, 11/1 R Martinez, 12/1 M Jol, 16/1 B McDermott, 20/1 A Villas-Boas, 20/1 M O’Neill, 20/1 T Pulis, 25/1 A Pardew, 33/1 D Moyes, 33/1 R Mancini, 50/1 A Wenger, 66/1 No Manager to Leave, 100/1 A Ferguson.

How Many Premier League Managers will leave between the start and end of the 2012/13 Premier League season? 10/1 None or One, 9/4 Two or Three, 11/8 Four or Five, 11/8 Six or More.

How Long Will Manchester Dominate For Now?

After two 2-0 victories for the two Manchester sides, the advantage stays on Manchester City and William Hill make them 1/9 to lift the Premier League trophy while Manchester United are 5/1. Following the dominance of both sides this season, Hills are now betting on when the League is won by anyone but the blues or reds from Manchester. Next season is the 7/4 favourite although it is 2/1 for the trophy to not be lifted by Manchester until 2015/16 or later.

“Despite the two sides being level on points, the fate of the Premier League trophy rests firmly with City and only an unlikely defeat to QPR next weekend will prevent them from lifting their first Premier League title,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

When will a non Manchester side win the Premier League: 7/4 2012/13; 11/4 2013/14; 9/2 2014/15; 2/1 2015/16 or later

Premier League Outright: 1/9 Manchester City; 5/1 Manchester United

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.

Goal Line Technology Imminent – You Can Bet On That

GOAL LINE TECHNOLOGY ODDS-ON BEFORE 2013

William Hill believe it is an odds-on chance that goal line technology will be used in the Premier League before the end of next year. ’It appears that the inevitable introduction of goal-line technology is moving ever closer’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

William Hill: Year of the first Premier League match to use goal line technology:

by the end of 2012 4/6

FIRST PREM BOSS TO LEAVE WILL GO IN DECEMBER – BET ON IT

William Hill have opened a book on when the first Premier League boss will leave his job this season – and Hills go 2/5 that it will happen in December. ‘Several managers are under severe pressure at the moment and we fully expect that one or more wil go before the New Year’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
For the first time, Andre Villas Boas is odds on to be out of his job as Chelsea boss by the first game of next season with William Hill, who make AVB 9/2 fourth favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his club this season. Hills currently make Steve Kean 6/4 favourite with Steve Bruce 9/4 second favourite, Roberto Martinez 5/2 third favourite.
Hills also offer: 7/1 Owen Coyle; 8/1 Alex McLeish; 12/1 Mick McCarthy; 14/1 Harry Redknapp.
‘We are beginning to see money for ‘no managers’ to lose their jobs this season, but are happy to leave the price at 10/1 as we cannot envisage that happening’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

In which month will the 1st Premier League manager leave:

November 8/1
December 2/5
January 4/1
February or March 7/1
April until final day of season 20/1

YOU BET TORRES COULD BE ON WAY OUT, TOO…….

WITH FERANDO TORRES left on the bench for Chelsea’s Champions League defeat by Leverkusen, William Hill are betting on where the troubled striker will be playing on the first day of next season:

Real Madrid 10/1
Atl Madrid 12/1

William Hill make Manchester United 20/1 to win the Europa League this season, with Man City 7/1, and Chelsea 16/1. ‘Some big clubs could find themselves unexpectedly in the Europa League this season and if so it will be interesting to see what sort of appetite they might have to win it’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Europa League Outright:

Man Utd 20/1
Chelsea 16/1
Man City 7/1

**If the stated teams do not take part in the Europa league 11/12, bets are losers.

Not So Nice To See You Brucie !

NOW STEVE BRUCE IS FAVOURITE TO BE NEXT BOSS OUT

AS THE SUNDERLAND fans began to show displeasure with their manager, Steve Bruce, William Hill made him 11/8 favourite to be the first Premier League manager to depart this season. ‘Steve Bruce has been there or thereabouts, but the reaction of the fans persuaded us to make him clear favourite for the first time’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

February or March 7/1

City are 11/8 to maintain their 5 point cushion at the top of the table following this round of games and 6/4 to set a new record total of 104 or more Premier League goals this season. ‘City are the team to beat this season and after their Champions League setback in midweek they will be keen to regain momentum’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

City PL Goals 2011/12

Could Mancini Be Robert-go By The End Of The Season?

The Carlos Tevez saga took another twist when Roberto Mancini was prevented from talking about the player at a Press Conference while reports suggested that he may not have the full backing of the squad and Hills make him 5/2 to fail to see out the season with City. He is 33/1 to be the first Premier League manager to leave his club.

The furore surrounding Carlos Tevez and his refusal to play has still not died down. Former club West Ham have enquired about the availability of the controversial striker and William Hill make the Hammers 16/1 to be Tevez’s next club. Juventus are the 11/4 favourites. Tevez is 4/9 to never start a Premier League match with Manchester City again.

“This Tevez situation appears to be a saga that will run and run and the longer it does so, the more sides that will register an interest in the want-away player,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “The latest side to do so are West Ham, but they are considered relative outsiders at the moment.”

Mancini to be at Manchester City on the last day of the season: 2/7 yes; 5/2 no

Tevez Next Club: 11/4 Juventus; 4/1 Corinthians; 6/1 AC Milan; 6/1 Inter Milan; 7/1 Real Madrid; 8/1 PSG; 10/1 Boca Juniors; 12/1 Napoli; 16/1 Chelsea; 16/1 West Ham; 20/1 Arsenal; 20/1 Barcelona…(others on request, loan deals count)

Tevez to start a Premier League game for Manchester City again: 13/8 yes; 4/9 no

1st Premier League Manager to leave his job: 4/7 Steve Kean; 7/2 Steve Bruce; 8/1 David Moyes; 10/1 Arsene Wenger; 12/1 Neil Warnock; 14/1 Alan Pardew; 16/1 BAR

Premier League Latest: Arsenal Gunning For Fifth As United Odds On To Stay Unbeaten Longest

Arsene Wenger has made no secret of the fact that his Arsenal side is struggling and William Hill reckon the Gunners will miss out on Champions League football next season. Hills have them at 8/15 to finish 5th or sixth this season while their odds of a top four finish is 9/4. They are 40/1 to win the league and 100/1 to be relegated. Arsene Wenger is 9/4 to have left Arsenal by the end of the season and 8/1 to be the first Premier League manager to leave his job.

Hills offer 13/8 that Arsenal concede over 55 goals this season and are 1/16 to end the season with no silverware.

“Arsenal’s form at the moment is nowhere near the high standards that they have set over the past few years and Nasri and Fabregas appear justified in having left the Gunners in search of silverware,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

In stark contrast to Arsenal’s shaky start, United are five for five this season and are 1000/1 to win every single game this season and 10/1 to remain undefeated all season. They are odds on for the first time this season to win the league, at 4/6 while their cross city rivals are 5/2 to do so. Hills offer 6/4 that Manchester United win the league with City in second while it is 3/1 for City 1st and Utd 2nd.

Wayne Rooney is 13/8 to win the golden boot this season, with Sergio Aguero 11/4.

After the weekend’s matches, there are now only four unbeaten sides in the Premier League and William Hill make Manchester United the 2/5 favourites of the four to remain undefeated for the greatest number of matches. City are 2/1, while Newcastle are 16/1 and Villa 25/1.

Arsenal finishing position: 40/1 winner; 9/4 top four; 8/15 5th or 6th; 6/1 7th – 10th; 10/1 11th-17th; 100/1 relegated

Last team to lose in EPL: 2/5 Man Utd; 2/1 Man City; 16/1 Newcastle; 25/1 Aston Villa

1000/1 Utd to win every match this season

10/1 Utd to remain undefeated all season

Arsenal goals conceded this season: 15/8 under 48; 6/4 49-55; 13/8 over 55

First Premier League manager to go: 4/6 Steve Kean; 9/2 Steve Bruce; 8/1 Arsene Wenger; 9/1 Alan Pardew; 10/1 Neil Warnock; 12/1 David Moyes; 12/1 Harry Redknapp; 16/1 Mick McCarthy; 20/1 BAR

Premier League forecasts: 6/4 Utd/City; 3/1 City/United; 4/1 Utd/Chelsea; 8/1 Chelsea/Utd; 16/1 City/Chelsea; 25/1 Chelsea/City
