Will Swan Have Liverpool Singing Songs? 1/2 To Finish Higher Than Last Season.

Liverpool’s long and protracted search for a manager finally came to an end as Brendan Rodgers was named as Kenny Dalglish’s successor and William Hill think that he will fare better than Roy Hodgson by at least finishing a season, offered at 1/4 (11/4 he is given the chop before then). At least he does not have too much to better as Liverpool slumped to eighth position and Hills offer 1/2 that they finish seventh or better. He is 12/1 to win the LMA Manager of the Year.

“Rodgers found a winning formula while in South Wales and it could be argued that he has better players at his disposal,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Liverpool fans could be forgiven for getting excited about this appointment.”

Rodgers and his Swansea side last season defied pre-season predictions that they would be relegated and did so with a formula of patient, passing build up and Hills have opened a market on some of his former players joining him at Anfield. Gylfi Sigurdsson is 9/4 to join the Reds, while Scott Sinclair is 7/2. Leon Brtton and Ashley Williams are both 6/1 and Danny Graham is 7/1.

Rodgers will leave a very big hole in South Wales and William Hill make Ian Holloway the Even money favourite to replace him with Gus Poyet 2/1.

Paul Lambert looks like he could be on his way out of Carrow Road although the fact that his resignation has been rejected has muddied the waters somewhat. As things stand, Chris Hughton is the 5/4 favourite with Malky Mackay 2/1 and Steve Bruce 7/2.

Brendan Rodgers to last the season: 1/4 yes; 11/4 no

Will Liverpool finish higher or lower than they did in 2011/12: 1/2 finish higher; 13/8 finish lower; 8/1 finish eighth

Who will sign for Liverpool:
G. Sigurdsson: 1/3 no; 9/4 yes
S. Sinclair: 1/6 no; 7/2 yes
L. Britton: 1/12 no; 6/1 yes
A. Williams: 1/12 no; 6/1 yes
D. Graham: 1/16 no; 7/1 yes

Next permanent Swansea manager: 1/1 Ian Holloway; 2/1 Gus Poyet; 5/1 Dave Jones; 12/1 Alan Curbishley; 14/1 Chris Hughton; 14/1 Colin Pascoe; 14/1 Lee Clark; 16/1 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer; 16/1 Michael Laudrup; 16/1 Roberto Martinez; 16/1 Steve Bruce; 16/1 Alan Curtis; 20/1 BAR

Next permanent Norwich manager: 5/4 Chris Hughton; 2/1 Malky Mackay; 7/2 Steve Bruce; 10/1 Alan Curbishley; 10/1 Ian Culverhouse; 11/1 Gus Poyet; 11/1 Roberto Martinez; 11/1 Lee Clark; 12/1 Ole Gunnar Solksjaer; 14/1 Gianfranco Zola; 14/1 Ian Holloway; 16/1 Mick McCarthy; 20/1 BAR

WITH Arsene Wenger suggesting that Cesc Fabregas will play the majority of Premier League matches for Arsenal next season, William Hill have opened a book on how many games he will start, and make ten or fewer their 13/8 favourite. ‘Cesc’s future will not necessarily have been decided when the season gets underway so we are factoring into our odds the possibility of a move after the campaign has begun’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. ‘You can have 5/1 that he starts over 30 as Arsene Wenger appears to believe he should.’

Hills have also opened markets on how many of the five relegation-threatened sides will win at the weekend (8/11 ONLY ONE OF THEM DOES SO), which of them will score the most goals (2/1 WOLVES) and which of the games involving them will be the highest scoring match (7/4 MAN U-BLACKPOOL):
