Pardew Loses His Rag And Loses Punters Their Red Card Dough

Alan Pardew became the first Premier League manager sent to the stands and not one William Hill punter backed the Newcastle boss to see red which was offered at 16/1. The most popular selection was 6/1 favourite, Mark Hughes, who, despite his sides poor performance and the warm summer weather managed to remain relatively cool.

Mark Hughes is now the 10/1 favourite to be the next manager to be sent to the stands with David Moyes and Paul Lambert 11/1. Pardew has been cut slightly after his indiscretion to 14/1.

“Alan Pardew’s momentary loss of control will have everyone talking although the odds would suggest that he may well have learnt his lesson,” said Hill’ spokesman Joe Crilly.

Jermain Defoe scored for Spurs, but it was not enough to save his Spurs side from defeat and William Hill offer 11/8 that Emmanuel Adebayor arrives at Spurs before the end of the transfer window.

Next manager to be sent to the stands: 10/1 Mark Hughes; 11/1 David Moyes; 11/1 Paul Lambert; 12/1 Adre Villas Boas; 12/1 Martin O’Neill; 12/1 Roberto Mancini; 12/1 Sam Allardyce; 12/1 Tony Pulis; 12/1Arsene Wenger; 14/1 Alan Pardew; 16/1 Chris Hughton; 16/1 Martin Jol; 16/1 Michael Laudrup; 16/1 Nigel Adkins; 16/1 Steve Clarke; 20/1 Brendan Rodgers; 20/1 Brian McDermott; 20/1 Roberto Di Matteo; 20/1 Alex Ferguson; 25/1 Roberto Martinez

Jermain Defoe Premier League goals: 9/4 1-6; 6/4 7-12; 13/8 13-18; 10/1 19 or more

Adebayor to sign for Spurs before the end of the transfer window: 11/8 yes; 8/15 no

Could Butland Cause Joe World Cup Hart-ache?

England’s young cubs are 7/5 slight favourites to defeat Italy (2/1) on Wednesday night and the draw 11/5. Andy Carroll and Jermain Defoe are the only recognised strikers in the England squad yet neither are considered first choice at their club sides and are 13/8 (Defoe) and 5/6 (Carroll) to have left their clubs by the time the transfer window shuts. The Spurs striker is 1/7 to start Spurs opening game of the season although Andy Carroll is 4/1 to do so.

Jack Butland looks primed to make his debut in goal for England and William Hill offer 3/1 that he starts between the sticks for England’s first World Cup game in Brazil although Joe Hart is the 4/9 favourite.

“Butland looks likely to become the youngest ever goalkeeper capped by England and should he progress as is expected, he could well be pressing Joe Hart for the number one shirt,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

£100 Million Transfer Chest For Avb?

Reports in the press are suggesting that Andre Villas Boas will have a hefty transfer budget to spend on new players as Tottenham look to catapult themselves back into the Champions League and Hills offer 7/4 that he is successful in doing so.

First the exits: Luka Modric is 4/6 to move to Spain and join Real Madrid, 5/2 for a Chelsea move and 5/1 for a move up to Old Trafford.

AVB has already signed his first player in Gylfi Sigurdsson and others are expected to follow shortly. Portugal midfielder Joao Moutinho who worked with AVB at Porto is 2/1 to be at Tottenham when they face up against Newcastle on the first day of next season. Marseille striker Loic Remy is 2/1 to join and 4/11 not to, whilst Russian Euro 2012 star Alan Dzagoev is 5/1 to be there and 1/9 he won’t.

“It looks like Spurs will be one of the big spenders this summer and in order to fund the spending spree we expect a couple of big name exits,” said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.

7/4 Tottenham to finish in the top four
Luka Modric’s Next Club: 4/6 Real Madrid, 5/2 Chelsea. 5/1 Man Utd, 10/1 Man City, 12/1 Barcelona, 16/1 PSG, 33.1 AC Milan, 33/1 Juventus, 40/1 Inter Milan, 50/1 Liverpool, 50/1 Arsenal

England 200/1 To Win Euros Without Conceding

ENGLAND 200/1 TO WIN EUROS – WITHOUT CONCEDING A GOAL!

AFTER offering England at 16/1 to win the Euro 2012 tournament , William Hill have slashed their odds to 10/1 following their win over Belgium. ‘The first stirrings of the punting public getting behind Roy Hodgson have appeared and we acquired a potential payout of some £250,000 on England at 16/1, so shortened their odds to 10/1’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Following the 1-0 victory, Roy Hodgson has yet to see his England side concede and Hills are offering 10/1 that they do not concede at all in the Group stage, and 200/1 that they win the tournament without conceding a single goal. (Penalty shoot-outs excluded).
Danny Welbeck scored with a stunning finish and Hills make him 4/6 to start the opening goal v France, and 6/1 joint favourite to end the tournament as England top scorer.

Not to concede a goal in group stage games – 10/1

Uncapped England Stars Backed To Grab Caps…goal-line Technology Just 2/1 For Next Season

James Milner and Joleon Lescott took the press conference today and while Lescott looks certain to start, James Milner looks less likely, with William Hill making him 4/9 to start the match on the bench (13/8 to start match on pitch). With Roy Hodgson confirming that Wayne Rooney will not be taking part in any of the game on Saturday, Hills are betting on who will start up front and with Danny Welbeck suffering with a slight injury, Hills make Andy Carroll 1/6 to lead the line, while Jermain Defoe is 6/4 to do so.

There will be three uncapped players who will be hoping to make an impact in Norway (Martin Kelly, John Ruddy and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain) and Hills offer 2/1 that all three win their first caps while 10/1 is offered that none of them do.

It has been confirmed that goal-line technology will be used for England’s home game against Belgium on the 2nd June and William Hill are offering 2/1 (from an original 6/1) that it is introduced into the Premier League by the start of next season (it is 4/11 for it to not be in place).

“The move towards getting goal-line technology appears to be gathering momentum and we are now the shortest price ever for it to be introduced next season,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

James Milner to start vs Norway: 4/9 no; 13/8 yes

Start up front:
Carroll: 1/6 yes; 7/2 no
Defoe: 6/4 yes; 1/2 no

Uncapped players to earn a cap vs Norway (Oxlade-Chamberlain, Kelly, Ruddy): 10/1 none; 2/1 one; 8/13 two; 2/1 three

Dan The Man And How Many Goals Will England Euro Top Scorer Notch ?

TWO GOALS AGAINST DUTCH – THREE IN ENTIRE EURO FINALS?

William Hill have opened a book on how many goals England’s top scorer in the Euro finals will score and make THREE their 2/1 favourite, with TWO a 9/4 chance and ONE, the ‘winner’ in the last World Cup, a 7/2 shot. ‘Whoever manages the side in the Euros will need to prioritise his strikers pretty quickly as, at the moment, there are several contenders to start up front in the opening game to stake a claim for a permanent place in the side’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

And Hills make Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck their 11/2 joint favourites to top score for the country innthe tournament.

DAN THE MAN?

William Hill are betting on which Dan – Sturridge or Welbeck, will score more goals and play more minutes during the Euro finals – and reckon Welbeck is likely to outdo Sturridge in both areas. ‘The two Dans are amongst our most promising players and it will be very interesting to see which of the two enjoys the better tournament’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

You Bet Jags Or Lescott Will Start Alongside Terry But Capello To Ring Changes

A largely experimental England side performed well for Fabio Capello, but William Hill think that the changes will be rung when the side steps out for their opener at the European Championships. Hills offer 2/1 that just three of the starting XI vs Sweden start England’s first game in Poland and the Ukraine, with four the same price.

The defence was well marshalled by John Terry and Gary Cahill and Hills offer 13/2 that this pairing start England’s first Euros game although the most likely seems to be John Terry with either Lescott or Jagielka (both 9/4). It would appear that the seemingly unbreakable partnership of Terry and Ferdinand has reached its end, with Hills making them 10/1 to line up side by side for England’s first Euros match.

“Cahill and Terry played well together but we think that Jagielka or Lescott may just get the nod ahead of Cahill to line up next to the captain,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

England have secured two wins in two home friendlies and are due to play Holland at the start of next year and Hills make England slight favourites at 13/10 to win the match, with Holland13/8 and the draw 11/10.
