7/2 For Blackburn’s Under Fire Trio To Leave Club

After the humiliating apology issued to Steve Kean and Morten Gamst Pedersen by Blackburn global advisor, Shebby Singh, William Hill are offering 7/2 that all three have left their positions by the end of the Championship season.

“It is no secret that Steve Kean is walking a tightrope after relegation last season but Shebby Singh has really turned the heat up on the manager now,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “His ill-advised comments about fans’ favourite, Morten Gamst Pedersen, however, have put Singh’s own position under threat.”

Blackburn are 10/1 joint fifth favourites to win the Championship behind favourites Bolton at 6/1 and Leicester at 7/1.

English Championship winner: 6/1 Bolton; 7/1 Leicester; 9/1 Leeds; 9/1 Wolves; 10/1 Blackburn; 10/1 Cardiff; 11/1 BAR

English Championship promotion: 7/4 Leicester; 2/1 Bolton; 5/2 Wolves; 3/1 Leeds; 4/1 Blackburn; 4/1 Cardiff; 4/1 Nottingham Forest; 5/1 BAR

Book On Young Player Of The Year After Massive Gamble On Walker

William Hill have closed the book on PFA Young Player of the year after Kyle Walker was backed in from 33/1 outsider to 5/6 to scoop the award. The straw that broke the camel’s back was when a punter in Leeds entered a shop asking to place £1200 on the Tottenham right back.

“This is a market in which the outcome is predetermined and while the majority of punters who want a genuine bet outweigh those that already know, unfortunately we think we may have inadvertently found out the winner of the Young Player of the Year,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

WILLIAM HIL offer 33/1 that any keeper will score in any of the this weekend’s (Sat,Sun,Mon) FA Cup games.

Thierry 3/1 to come on and score, but:

WITH Thierry Henry likely to return to the Arsenal team for their FA Cup match against Leeds on Monday, William Hill offer 1/ 2 that he will extend his amazing run of scoring against Leeds in the last five games he has played against them, if he starts – and 3/1 that he is on target coming on as sub, should he start on the bench. ‘Henry has a prolific scoring record against Leeds and it would appear to be written in the stars that he should score on his return to the club’ said ill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

William Hill believe Thierry Henry has the same chance of scoring NO goals during his two month spell at Arsenal as he has of scoring three or more in his time there, quoting 2/1 about each eventuality – but they make him an 8/1 chance to strike a blow for the Gunners against their deadly rivals Sputrs, by netting against them. ‘Many punters will be convinced there is an inevitability about Henry returning to haunt Spurs’ added Sharpe.

HENRY TO SCORE V LEEDS – 1/ 2 (if starting); 3/1 if coming on as substitute. 9/4 to score 1st goal; 9/4 last goal; 9/4 two or more; 10/1 hat trick.

HENRY ARSENAL GOALS (1ST team competitive games)
NONE 2/1
ONE 11/4
TWO 3/1


NEIL WARNOCK has been cut from 11/2 to 5/2 second favourite by William Hill to be the next Premier League boss to leave his club. ‘His outbursts are becoming ever more outspoken ,Rangers are slipping into relegation trouble, and we’ve started to see cash for him to be the next to go’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. Hills offer 8/11 that Warnock will still be Rangers’ boss on the first day of next season,Evens not.
Steve Kean is 6/5 favourite to be the next boss out with Hills who also offer 7/2 AVB/Coyle; 8/1 McLeish; 12/1 McCarthy; 16/1 no more to go this season. Others on request.
