Lambert And Holt Set To Bolt…eden Hazardous Against New Teammates

Paul Lambert looks set to leave Norwich and William Hill offer 5/4 that Chris Hughton gets the job, while Malky Mackay is 7/4 with Steve Bruce 3/1. Grant Holt looks like he could be another person heading for the exit door at Carrow Road and Hills make Sunderland the 13/8 favourites to attract the powerful forward with Aston Villa 15/8. Hills have cut the price of Norwich being relegated, given the current turmoil, from 7/4 to 13/8.

“Holt and Lambert were instrumental in the meteoric rise for Norwich in recent times and their departures could catalyse a downturn in fortunes for the Canaries,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

England take on Belgium at Wembley on Saturday where Eden Hazard will be showcasing his talents on UK soil and Hills offer 6/1 that he outscores his new Chelsea teammates (Cole Cahill and Terry) during the game.

Andy Carroll had a brilliant opportunity to add to his single goal for England against Norway and Hills are now betting on how the Liverpool targetman will find the net. 4/5 favourite is that he bags a goal with his left foot and 6/4 he does so with a header. Carroll is 7/2 to open the scoring against Belgium and 10/11 to score anytime during the match.

Next Norwich manager: 5/4 Chris Hughton; 7/4 Malky Mackay; 3/1 Steve Bruce; 6/1 Tim Sherwood; 10/1 Lee Clark; 10/1 Ian Culverhouse; 12/1 Ole Gunnar Solksjaer; 14/1 Gus Poyet; 14/1 Alan Curbishley; 14/1 Gianfranco Zola; 14/1 Ian Holloway; 16/1 BAR

Grant Holt next club: 13/8 Sunderland; 15/8 Aston Villa; 7/1 West Ham; 12/1 Everton; 16/1 Newcastle; 16/1 Stoke; 16/1 Swansea; 20/1 Tottenham; 20/1 Fulham; 33/1 Liverpool

Eden Hazard vs Terry, Cahill and Cole (goals): 6/1 Hazard; 9/2 Terry, Cahill, Cole; 1/4 Tie
*All four players must start the match or bets void

Tale of two cities: City and United players vs Everton and Liverpool players (goals vs Belgium): 5/6 City & United; 5/6 Liverpool & Everton

How will Andy Carroll score his next England goal: 4/5 left foot shot (not inc Penalty or Free kick); 6/4 Header; 2/1 Right foot shot (not including Penalty or free kick); 12/1 Penalty; 25/1 Free Kick

6/1 Mc Leish Gone By End Of Year Etc


AFTER HIS controversial appointment as Villa boss, William Hill offer 6/1 that he will leave the position before the end of 2011 but believe he will lead the club to 8th-10th position next season – which they quote at 6/4, and make them 14/1 to finish in the top four and 20/1 to go down.
Hills make Villa 13/8 to win their opening game against 11/8 Fulham with the draw a 21/10 chance. ‘It would seem to be vital for McLeish to get off to a winning start if he is to get Villa fans on his side’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

William Hill SAY THAT over a quarter of a million pounds has been gambled with them on the five recent managerial markets for Birmingham, Cardiff, Chelsea, Fulham and Villa. ‘We won a five figure sum on McLeish’s appointment and a smaller sum on Malky Mackay should he be confirmed as Cardiff boss, but lost on Martin Jol. These markets have provided us with a terrific turnover in the absence of any Premier League matches, and confirm the tremendous interest in all elements of the top division’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

When Will McLEISH Leave Villa?
2011 6/1
2012 6/4

Wl Corks Be Popping For Shearer ?


A GAMBLE which began in Cork has catapulted Alan Shearer into the position of second favourite to become the next Cardiff manager with bookmakers William Hill who have slashed his odds from 10/1 to 6/4.
‘We began to see bets for Shearer on Monday night and soon noticed that almost all of them – and they were for up to 200 euros a time- were coming from the Cork area. We reduced the odds but the bets continued to come in and eventually we began to see money from other areas. The gamble has continued on Tuesday morning and we wouldn’t be surprised to see Shearer become favourite over Malky Mackay very shortly’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
LATEST William Hill ODDS FOR NEXT PERMANENT CARDIFF MANAGER….1/2 MalkyMackay; 6/4 Shearer; 4/1Mark Robins; 9/1 Ian Holloway; 10/1 Mark Hughes. Others on request
