Avb Closes In On Spurs Job

AVB Closes In on Spurs Job

Despite Andre Villas Boas claiming talk about him joining Tottenham as lies William Hill still quote him at 4/11 to become the new boss at White Hart Line.

Laurent Blanc suffered disappointment with France’s elimination from Euro 2012 last night but he is 8/1 to take over from Harry Redknapp. Fabio Capello is second favourite at 5/1 but money has been placed on ex Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola at 16/1.

“Money has been seen for Guardiola and Blanc but despite AVB playing down rumours of his move to Spurs we expect him to be in the hot seat at White Hart Lane sooner rather than later,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

Next Tottenham Manager: 4/11 Villas Boas, 5/1 Capello, 8/1 Blanc, 8/1 Klinsmann, 14/1 Moyes, 14/1 Hoddle, 16/1 Rangnick, 16/1 Guardiola, 16/1 Martinez, 16/1 Sherwood, 16/1 Hiddink, 20/1 Benitez, 25/1 BAR

Di Matteo Gets Chelsea Job: Favourite To Last At Least A Year!

Roberto Di Matteo has been confirmed as the new Chelsea manager and after his incredible work in the second half of the season, Hills think that he will last at least a year in his new position. Di Matteo is 1/2 to still be in charge for the first game of the 2013- 2014 season and 6/4 not to be. Should Roman Abramovich decide it is not working out Hills offer 8/1 that Pep Guardiola is the man in the hot seat come the start of the 2013-14 season.

“Di Matteo came in last season and performed admirably and the odds suggest he will be given a fair crack of the whip,” said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.

Roberto Di Matteo to be manager at the start of the 2013/14 season: 1/2 yes; 6/4 no

8/1 Pep Guardiola to be Chesea manager at the start of the 2013/14 season

Money On Mcglynn To Be New Hearts Boss

John McGlynn has been backed by William Hill punters to take up the vacant manager’s role at Tynecastle.

The Raith Rovers boss is 7/1 to take the post but ex Lokomotiv Moscow boss Jose Couceiro is still the favourite for the Hearts hot seat at 11/10. 40% of bets on the market have been placed on McGlynn.

“McGlynn has done a solid job at Raith Rovers leading punters to believe that it could be time for a step up. He is somewhat of an outsider with Couceiro heading the market and ex players Paul Hartley and Stephen Pressley close to him. It is a case of watch this space,” said Hill’s spokesman Mark Young.

Next Hearts Manager: 11/10 J Couceiro, 5/1 S Pressley, 11/2 G Locke, 6/1 C Cameron, 6/1 P Hartley, 7/1 J McGlynn, 10/1 B Davies, 12/1 T Butcher, 14/1 J Jeffries, 16/1 J Robertson, 16/1 L Clark, 16/1 S McCall, 16/1 D Weir, 20/1 D Gvildys, 20/1 E Riabovas, 20/1 R Zutautas, 20/1 S Clarke, 25/1 J Calderwood, 25/1 D Adams, 33/1 A McCleish, 40/1 B Reid.

Managerial Merry Go Round As England Look Set To Announce New Manager After Season

Liverpool, Everton, Chelsea and Tottenham are the four teams contesting the FA Cup semi finals but despite their relative successes in that competition, William Hill offer 6/4 that two of the four managers in charge (Redknapp, Di Matteo, Moyes, Dalglish) will have left their clubs by the start of next season. Harry Redknapp is one of those managers and he is 1/4 favourite to become the next England manager, with Roy Hodgson 4/1, Stuart Pearce 6/1 and Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola both 12/1. Hills are now offering odds on when the next permanent England boss has his first official press conference and go 8/15 that it is after the end of this season but before the start of the European Championships.

“England will be wary of disrupting any side’s season and so may well wait until after the season to make their announcement,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Jose Mourinho is the 9/4 favourite with Pep Guardiola 9/2. Chelsea are 1/6 to qualify for the Champions League semi finals and 8/1 to win the competition.

Sven In Pole Position For Fulham Hot Seat On Slowest Day Of Betting So Far

In the race to be next permanent Fulham manager, William Hill have reported the quietest day since opening the book. Sven Goran Eriksson is the 5/4 favourite, with Dave Jones 3/1 and Mark Hughes at 4/1.

“It has been a very slow day indeed which would suggest that the Fulham directors have gone back to the drawing board and it speaks volumes that Sven tops the market,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Next Fulham Manager: 5/4 Sven Goran Eriksson; 3/1 Dave Jones; 4/1 Mark Hughes; 7/1 Alan Curbishley; 12/1 Ray Lewington; 12/1 Otmar Hitzfeld; 14/1 Gianfranco Zola; 14/1 Bob Bradley; 16/1 Martin Jol; 20/1 Bar

Martin Jol Withdraws From Race…dave Jones New Favourite For Fulham Hot Seat

The long running saga of who will be the next Fulham manager took yet another turn this morning when Martin Jol admitted he was staying with Ajax. This has seen his odds drift from 1/8 to 25/1 at William Hill in the space of four days. Conversely Hills are facing big liabilities on 5/2 favourite Dave Jones taking the hot seat having previously quoted him at up to 25/1. Sven Goran Eriksson also seems keen on a return to the Premiership and is now the 9/2 second favourite. Alan Curbishley and Bob Bradley are the 9/1 joint third favourites.

“Some far sighted punters could be in for a big windfall, having backed Dave Jones at 25/1, but the likely sticking point could prove to be the issue of compensation to Cardiff City. We are expecting this saga to continue for a little while longer and could still see an outsider take the job,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill Odds:

Next Fulham Manager: 5/2 Dave Jones; 9/2 Sven Goran Eriksson; 9/1 Alan Curbishley; 9/1 Bob Bradley; 10/1 Mark Hughes; 10/1 Gianfranco Zola; 12/1 Otmar Hitzfeld; 14/1 Ray Lewington; 14/1 Stuart Baxter; 16/1 Lee Clark; 20/1 Bar
