Hodgson Fancied For England: Will Gerrard Miss Out On Captaincy?

Roy Hodgson is the 1/8 favourite to get the England job with William Hill after news emerged that the West Brom manager had been approached by the FA. Having been as short as 1/4 on Saturday, Harry Redknapp is out to 9/2 with current interim manager Stuart Pearce 25/1.

“The FA have announced that Hodgson is the first man that they want to speak to, but whether this is an indication that he is first choice is uncertain,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “All those that think Harry is still the man for the job, now have the opportunity to back him at odds against.”

After his missed penalty against Blackburn signalled the end for Hodgson, Hills have pushed out the price of Steven Gerrard wearing the captain’s armband for England’s first Euros game from 5/4 to 11/8, while Scott Parker is in from 5/4 to 6/5. Joe Hart is the 7/1 third favourite.

Carlos Tevez has announced that he would love to stay at Manchester City for the foreseeable future and Hills have cut his odds of staying until at least next season from 6/4 to 1/20.

England Captain for Euro 2012 Game vs France: 6/5 Scott Parker; 11/8 Steven Gerrard; 7/1 Joe Hart; 12/1 Frank Lampard; 33/1 Rio Ferdinand; 33/1 Ashley Cole; 33/1 Gareth Barry
*If captain for this game is John Terry then all bets void

Next permanent England manager: 1/8 Roy Hodgson; 9/2 Harry Redknapp; 25/1 Stuart Pearce; 25/1 Martin O’Neill; 33/1 Alan {ardew; 33/1 Guus Hiddink; 33/1 Rafa Benitez; 40/1 Pep Guardiola; 50/1 BAR

End Of The Chelsea Pensioners…ash Dives To Splash Everton…pepe 6/1 To See Red

Much has been made of the fact that Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba, despite their impressive performances against Barcelona, could be on their way from Chelsea at the end of the season. William Hill are offering 11/4 (Lampard) and 11/10 (Drogba) that they have left by the time the 2012/13 Premier League season kicks off. Chelsea face Arsenal without Wednesday night’s talisman and Hills think that they could struggle with Robin van Persie 6/4 to outscore Fernando Torres.

“If Di Matteo gets the Chelsea job on a full time basis he may want to keep these seasoned pros for one more season but it is inevitable that all good things have to come to an end and the Blues may dispense of them to make way for younger players,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Sir Alex Ferguson has warned Ashley Young that he could earn himself a reputation if his theatrical antics continue but despite this William Hill are offering 10/1 that the Reds’ winger wins his side a penalty against Everton to make it three in three home matches.

One of the most important El Clasicos in recent years takes place on Saturday and William Hill are expecting a feisty affair, offering just 11/10 that there is a red card during the match. The main perpetrator of El Clasico shenanigans, Pepe, is 6/1 to see red during the game. Currently, Ronaldo and Messi are tied on 41 goals in La Liga but William Hill are offering 8/11 that the Real Madrid flyer bags more than his Barcelona counterpart between now and the end of the season (Even money that he does not).

Chelsea’s Captain Fantastic (not Terry) 14/1 For England Armband

FRANK LAMPARD captained 10 man Chelsea to the Champions League Final against Barcelona and William Hill make him 14/1 to wear the armband for England’s first game of the European Championships. However, Steven Gerrard and Scott Parker are the 5/4 joint favourites for the captaincy.

Harry Redknapp is the 1/4 red hot favourite to be named as the next permanent England manager but it is less clear when the FA will announce the appointment of their chosen man. William Hill make it 1/3 that the new manager will take his first press conference between the end of the Premier League and England’s first game at the Euros.

“Redknapp is the red hot favourite for the England job as far as our punters are concerned but no one quite knows when the appointment will be made,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

CHELSEA fantastically drew with Barcelona with ten men and William Hill make the Blues 7/4 to lift the trophy. With John Terry getting sent off and going 2-0 down, the Blues were as long as 20/1 to qualify from the tie. The mastermind behind the victory, Roberto Di Matteo, is in to 4/5 from 7/4 to become the next permanent Chelsea boss. Chelsea will be up against it in the Final having four players ruled out by suspension but Hills make Michael Essien 1/2, Bosingwa 1/5 and Torres 2/1 to start in Munich.

BARCELONA have now failed to win three games in a row, almost unheard of and Hills make Guardiola 5/6 to have left his position by the time the 2012/13 season kicks off.

ASTON VILLA lost on Tuesday to Bolton and William Hill make Alex McLeish 9/2 to have left Villa Park by the start of next season.

Who will captain England for the first game of the European Championships: 5/4 Steven Gerrard; 5/4 Scott Parker; 8/1 Joe Hart; 14/1 Frank Lampard; 33/1 Rio Ferdinand; 33/1 Gareth Barry
*If captain for this game is John Terry then all bets are void

When will Fabio Capello’s permanent replacement have their first official press conference as England manager: 10/3 before the end of the Premier League season; 1/3 between the end of the Premier League season and England’s first game; 20/1 during Euro 2012; 9/2 after Euro 2012

Chelsea players to be there next season:

After his heroics against Blackburn, William Hill are offering 4/1 that Brad Jones saves a penalty against Everton at any point during the tie. With both games being local derbies, William Hill are expecting a couple of tasty affairs and are offering 4/1 that there are two or more red cards over the two matches (4/9 for none and 10/3 for one).

“Brad Jones will certainly not have expected to be playing on Sunday but now he will be studying tapes of Everton’s penalty takers to make sure he is prepared for any eventualities,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Chelsea have two very important games ahead of them and having rested a few of their big names against Fulham are expected to have the big guns firing against Spurs and Barcelona. Hills are offering 1/5 that John Terry starts both games, 5/6 for Frank Lampard and 1/6 that Ashley Cole does. Chelsea are 11/1 to bear Spurs on Sunday and Barcelona at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

Chelsea to beat Spurs and Barcelona: 11/1

Chelsea 7/2 To Give Barca The Blues – Di Matteo 2/1 To Get Stamford Bridge Gig

Chelsea made it through to the Champions League semi final and William Hill make them 8/1 to win the tournament. The bad news for all Blues fans is that they have to face defending champions, Barcelona, in the semis and Hills are offering 7/4 that they manage just one goal over the two legs with ‘star’ striker Fernando Torres 2/7 to fail to find the net against the Catalan giants. Roberto Di Matteo has only tasted defeat once as Chelsea boss and he is 2/1 to get the manager’s position on a permanent basis.

Hills make Chelsea 7/2 to qualify for the final with Barcelona 1/6, while in the other semi final, Real Madrid are 1/2 to qualify for the final (Bayern are 6/4). The game that most neutrals would love to see is the Madrid/Barcelona final and Hills make that outcome 3/4 to happen.

“Barcelona have been favourites all the way through this year’s Champions League and we do not think our punters will desert the Catalans now ,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Frank Lampard scored the decisive second goal across the tie and Hills make him 6/4 to start England’s first Euro 2012 match.

TO WIN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: (Hills bet): 5/6 Barcelona, 5/2 Real Madrid; 5/1 Munich; 8/1 Chelsea – win only

None 3/1
One 7/4
Two 5/2
Three or more 5/2

YES – 5/2
NO – 2/7
