Barton Backed For Big Ban…scholes Set For Sensational Return

William Hill have cut the price of Joey Barton’s ban being eight or more games following 90% of all bets placed on the market being for over. He is now 4/7 to face a ban of over 7.5 games (5/4 not to).

“Joey has always been known for his pugnacious style, but he may have overstepped the line one too many times and our punters think the FA are ready to throw the book at the QPR captain,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Gary Neville has been called up to the England backroom staff and William Hill make the former United man 14/1 to be the next boss of the England National team. With the 23 man squad set to be named on Wednesday, William Hill are betting on which players make the grade. Joe Hart, Wayne Rooney, Ashley Cole and Steven Gerrard are 1/100 to be on the plane while Scott Parker, Gary Cahill and Gareth Barry are 1/50.

Surprisingly, Paul Scholes has claimed that he would be open for a call up to the Euros squad and he is 6/4 to go.

William Hill odds:

Next Villa Manager: 7/4 Roberto Martinez; 5/2 Paul Lambert; 10/1 Neil Lennon; 10/1 Rafael Benitez; 12/1 Mick McCarthy; 12/1 Ole Gunnar Solksjaer; 12/1 Alan Curbishley; 12/1 Bob Bradley; 12/1 Brendan Rodgers; 12/1 Kevin MacDonald; 14/1 Roberto Di Matteo; 16/1 Brian McDermott; 16/1 Claudio Ranieri; 16/1 Gianfranco Zola; 16/1 Louis Van Gaal; 16/1 Marco Bielsa; 16/1 Paolo Di Canio; 16/1 Gus Poyet; 16/1 Lee Clark; 16/1 Chris Hughton; 20/1 BAR
