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.

Hills have pushed out the odds of Roberto Di Matteo becoming the next permanent Chelsea manager from 11/4 to 10/3 despite his strong start in the hot seat. 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.

Odds On Goal-line Technology Cut As Spurs Drift In Top London Club Market!

QPR were denied a vital goal in their relegation battle against Bolton and are now 1/3 with William Hill to be relegated at the end of the season. Mark Hughes’ reign has got off to a less than auspicious start to say the least and Hills are offering 11/10 that he is no longer QPR boss come the first day of their 2012/13 season(4/6 that he is still there).

Hughes’ odds of departure have changed drastically since yesterday’s defeat and should QPR be relegated, it could well be traced back to that phantom goal. Hills have cut their odds of goal-line technology being introduced following solid punter support and offer 11/4 that the Premier League sees goal-line technology next season.

“After such a vital ‘goal’ was chalked off yesterday, the goal-line technology argument has once again reared its head and it looks as though a resolution may finally be around the corner, but all maybe too little too late for Hughes and QPR” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Spurs have now lost two matches on the spin and with Arsenal starting to fire on all cylinders, Hills only make Tottenham slight favourites at 8/13 to be the top London club at the end of the season with Arsenal 9/4 and Chelsea 7/2.

William Hill Odds:

Goal-Line Technology to be introduced by the start of the 2012/13 season: 11/4 yes; 1/4 no

Which league will be the first to introduce goal-line technology: 13/8 SPL; 11/4 EPL; 4/1 Bundesliga; 11/2 La Liga; 7/1 Ligue 1; 8/1 Serie A; 10/1 Eredivisie

Hughes to be manager of QPR on the first day of next season: 4/6 yes; 11/10 no

Premier League relegation: 2/9 Wigan; 3/10 Wolves; 1/3 QPR; 11/8 Bolton; 13/8 Blackburn; 25/1 BAR

Premier League to stay up: 4/9 Blackburn; 8/15 Bolton; 9/4 QPR; 12/5 Wolves; 3/1 Wigan

Top London Club: 8/13 Tottenham; 9/4 Arsenal; 7/2 Chelsea
