Opening Day Thumpings Could See Early Managerial Changes

Mark Hughes, Chris Hughton and Brendan Rodgers all suffered heavy opening day defeats and William Hill offer 9/1 that two or three of them have gone before Christmas, 7/4 one of them has and 8/15 that none of them have . Another side struggling to adjust to the new season was Arsenal as they started life without Robin van Persie and William Hill make the Gunners 8/11 to score before their former striker does (Evens they do not).

“There were certainly a few sides who looked as though they were still on their holidays and their managers will have to turn things around quickly otherwise they could find themselves out of a job before the year is out,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

How many of Hughes, Hughton and Rodgers gone by Christmas: 8/15 none; 7/4 one; 9/1 two or three

Who will score first: 8/11 Arsenal; Evens Robin van Persie

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

Swansea Gunning For Bergkamp…20/1 In To Evens For Job

Dennis Bergkamp has emerged today as the frontrunner for the Swansea manager’s job with William Hill seeing him backed in from 20/1 to Evens. Former favourite, Graeme Jones has drifted from 1/6 (on Friday) to 4/1 joint second favourite with Michael Laudrup.

“Bergkamp has come from nowhere to become our favourite but it has to be said that his Arsenal ethos would suit Swansea well ,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “We actually suspended betting on Saturday and Sunday because we thought that Jones had got the job, but it looks like we are back to square one.”

Next Permanent Swansea manager: 1/1 Dennis Bergkamp; 4/1 Graeme Jones; 4/1 Michael Laudrup; 6/1 Ian Holloway; 7/1 Gus Poyet; 8/1 Marcel Desailly; 16/1 BAR

Gutsy Scottish Punter Burns Bookies To The Tune Of £39,000

Bookmakers William Hill were burned by an Ayrshire punter who made a profit of £39,000 by backing Scotland to defeat Cyprus to the tune of £30,000. The gutsy punter walked into an Ayrshire shop and placed the bet at odds of 13/10 and in doing so, placed the biggest ever bet that Hills have taken on Scotland to win a match.

“When we heard about the bet, we were very surprised as this unknown Scottish punter was willing to risk such a large stake on a nothing friendly, but Craig Levein’s men have done the job and in the process, more than doubled this punter’s cash,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Quinn Quits – You Bet Bruce Next

QUINN QUITS – WILL BRUCE BE NEXT?

WITH Niall Quinn quitting as Sunderland chairman, William Hill have halved their odds for Steve Bruce to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job, from 4/1 to 2/1 second favourite, with only Steve Kean of Blackburn rated more likely, at 4/9 favourite. ‘Niall Quinn’s departure from the post probably leaves Steve Bruce without an important boardroom ally and with results not exactly setting the division alight, the manager suddenly looks more vulnerable’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills NOW OFFER 5/6 THAT BRUCE WILL STILL BE BOSS WHEN SUNDERLAND’S LAST GAME OF THE SEASON KICKS OFF, 5/6 THAT HE WILL NOT.

William Hill…Next Prem boss to go…4/9 Kean; 2/1 Bruce; 8/1 Coyle; 12/1 Moyes; 14/1 Wenger. Others on request.
