Bookies Bashed By Blatter? Goal Line Tech Looks A Certainty

After Sepp Blatter’s comments regarding the use of goal line technology William Hill have slashed the price for it to be in place for the first match of the 2014 World Cup from 7/4 to 1/1 but it is 8/11 that it won’t be ready in time.
The more likely stage for introduction could be for the first match of the 2016 European Championships. William Hill are odds on at 5/6 that goal line technology to be used that summer in France.

“Goal line technology looks a certainty, it is just a question of when rather than if it is introduced,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

Goal Line Technology to be used at the 2016 European Championships in France: 5/6 Yes

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
