Connor Already Odds On To Be Thrown To The Wolves By Next Season!

Wolves have today announced Terry Connor as their manager until the end of the season but whether Wolves stay up or go down (5/4 stay up / 4/7 relegation), William Hill are odds on at 8/11 that he is not in charge on the first day of next season (Even money to still be there). A new manager can often galvanise a push up the table but Hills offer 50/1 that they finish in the top half of the table, 9/2 11th – 14th and 2/1 15th – 17th.

Wolves are 5/1 to win Connor’s first match in charge and are 8/1 to finish the weekend at the foot of the table. Wigan are the 4/9 favourites, with Bolton 5/2, Blackburn 10/1 and QPR 25/1.

“We feel that Connor may well be in a lose/lose situation. Should he keep Wolves up, he may have to make way for a more experienced man and should they go down, he may have to leave for not being good enough,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Bridge Beginning To Bend Under Weight Of Expectation

Andre Villas Boas is under intense pressure at Chelsea and should things not go his way against Bolton on Saturday, he could be on his way. William Hill make him 4/1 to have left Chelsea by midnight on Saturday and 3/1 to have left before the kick off of the second leg of the Champions League tie against Napoli. He is odds on at 2/5 to no longer be at Chelsea on the first day of next season.

William Hill offer 33/1 that Arsenal will win both legs of their Champions League tie with Barcelona, while the Spaniards are 6/4 to do likewise.

90m play – 3/1 Arsenal; 11/4 draw; Barca 5/6…Messi to score in Barca win – 5/4; Fabregas to score in Arsenal win – 8/1

Hills offer 5/4 that he breaks his Chelsea duck away to FC Copenhagen away in the Champions League; 15/8 that he gets his first at home to Birmingham; 5/1 home v Man U; 6/1 away v Blackpool; 8/1 home v FC Copenhagen. ‘The longer the goalless run goes the more pressure will be heaped on both Torres and Ancelotti’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
And Hills now offer Evens that Ancelotti will be gone by the first Prem game of next season – 8/11 that he’ll still be there. ‘Ancelotti did not look best pleased after the game and Chelsea’s shakey form is a real problem for his future’ added Sharpe.
