Cott Out As Forest Build For Future With ‘arry?

Following the sacking of Steve Cotterill, William Hill make Darren Ferguson the 2/1 favourite to be named as the next permanent boss of Nottingham Forest although the ambitious new owners could be able to tempt Harry Redknapp to the club, offered at 4/1.

A couple of notable former Forest players that could be in the frame to make a return in the dugout are Roy Keane at 10/1, Stuart Pearce and Nigel Clough both at 20/1 and Gary Megson 25/1.

“Steve Cotterill did a fantastic job under very difficult circumstances last season but the ambition of the new Forest owners is highlighted by the fact that they are being linked with Harry Redknapp, Roy Keane and bizarrely, Diego Maradona – who is recently out of a job,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Under their new ownership, Forest are 1/10 to finish higher than their 19th position from last season.

SHIN UP: NEW UNITED BOYS AIM TO CLOSE GAP ON CITY

Shinji Kagawa was paraded in front of the media on Thursday with fellow signing Nick Powell and the Japanese international is 11/4 to net between 12 and 15 times for United this term. He is expected to play a pivotal role at Old Trafford this season and is 11/2 to start more than 26 games at United this season and 3/1 to start less than ten games.

“While Man City had Yaya Toure and David Silva, Manchester United were really lacking a creative midfielder last year and Kagawa looks like he will fill that role now,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Nick Powell, the 18 year old signing from Crewe is more likely one for the future. William Hill have him at 8/13 to start one or no games in the Premier League. He is 9/2 to start six or more in the Premier League this time. A big impact this season is unlikely but he is 7/1 to make the England squad for the World Cup in 2014.

Next Nottingham Forest manager: 2/1 Darren Ferguson; 4/1 Harry Redknapp; 7/1 Mick McCarthy; 10/1 Roy Keane; 16/1 Alex McLeish; 16/1 Billy Davies; 16/1 Karl Robinson; 16/1 Diego Maradona; 20/1 Alan Shearer; 20/1 Stuart Pearce; 20/1 Alan Curbishly; 20/1 Neil Warnock; 20/1 Nigel Clough; 25/1 Gary Megson; 25/1 Gordon Strachan; 25/1 Iain Dowie; 25/1 Ian Holloway; 25/1 Ole Gunnar Solksjaer; 25/1 Paolo Di Canio; 25/1 Paul Ince; 25/1 Rafa Benitez; 25/1 Phil Brown; 25/1 Glenn Hoddle; 25/1 Sven Goran Eriksson

Nottingham Forest finishing position: 9/1 lower; 7/1 exactly 19th; 1/10 higher

Transfer Window Set To Spark Betting Bonanza

Tevez, Borini, Barton, Adebayor & Forest Latest

After a slow transfer window so far, the summer has really warmed up with a number of huge transfer stories hitting the headlines. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic seemingly on his way to PSG, William Hill make AC Milan 5/6 to be the club with which Carlos Tevez is plying his trade at the end of the transfer window although current club, Manchester City, are the same price.

“Tevez performed a spectacular u-turn towards the end of last season by saying that he was at Manchester City for the long haul but with AC Milan seemingly willing to mould the team around him, the lure of Italy may be too strong,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Liverpool have reportedly had a transfer offer for Fabio Borini accepted by Roma and William Hill make the Italian striker 10/3 second favourite to be Liverpool’s leading scorer next season behind 6/4 Luis Suarez. He is also 6/4 to score more than 10 goals next season.

QPR’s Joey Barton may face the ignominy of dropping down a division with Blackburn apparently keen on taking the midfielder on loan. William Hill make Rovers Even money to be Barton’s next club, with ambitious Nottingham Forest 7/4 second favourites.

“Barton is ruled out of the first 12 games of the season, which will take him up to November, which would then allow a Championship side to swoop for him outside of the transfer window,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Emmanuel Adebayor looks set to sign for Spurs and William Hill are offering 2/1 that he scores two or more goals against Arsenal.

Glenn Hoddle is the 4/6 favourite to be named as the next permanent Nottingham Forest job, with Roy Keane (backed in from 8/1 to 2/1) as the second favourite. Mick McCarthy has also been well backed at 9/4 while Thursday’s odds on favourite, Darren Ferguson, is out to 9/2.

Carlos Tevez club after transfer window (loans count): 5/6 AC Milan; 5/6 Manchester City; 8/1 PSG; 8/1 Inter Milan; 10/1 Real Madrid; 16/1 Juventus; 20/1 Anzhi Makhachkala; 33/1 Chelsea

Borini EPL goals: 5/4 under 8 goals; 5/2 8-10 goals; 6/4 over 10 goals

Top Liverpool EPL scorer in 2012/13 season: 6/4 Suarez; 10/3 Borini; 7/2 Carroll; 6/1 Gerrard…others on request

Joey Barton next club (loan deals count / void if hasn’t transferred/loaned by winter transfer window): 1/1 Blackburn; 7/4 Nottingham Forest; 5/1 Leeds; 10/1 Newcastle

Adebayor goals vs Arsenal (must be a registered EPL player after summer transfer window): 10/11 none; 11/4 one; 2/1 two or more

Next permanent Nottingham Forest manager: 4/6 Glenn Hoddle; 2/1 Roy Keane; 9/4 Mick McCarthy; 9/2 Darren Ferguson; 10/1 Alex McLeish; 16/1 Harry Redknapp; 16/1 Sven Goran Eriksson; 25/1 BAR

Spain And Croatia Say No-no To Two-two

After topping Group C, William Hill make Spain the 2/1 favourites to win the Euros for the second time in a row, while Italy, who finished second in the group, are 10/1. The 2-2 draw that was tentatively predicted pre match never materialised and Spain can now look forward to a potential match up with England in the quarter finals. England look likely to finish in second in group D, with Hills offering 11/10 that they do so and 2/1 that they win it.

“There were some who thought that Spain and Croatia would play out a 2-2 draw to ensure they both qualified, so much so that we were forced to offer that result at 4/1, although, by the time kick off arrived, we were out to 8/1 about it and I think our punters realised that there was no reason to believe that the match would be played in anything but the right spirit,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “And right they were.”

Giovanni Trapattoni has only just signed a new contract as Ireland manager, but his reign could come to an end after the country’s poor showing at Euro 2012 and William Hill make Mick McCarthy the 5/1 favourite to become the next boss, with new Norwich manager, Chris Hughton, 9/1 second favourite.

Euro 2012 Outright: 2/1 Spain; 9/4 Germany; 13/2 Portugal; 7/1 France; 10/1 Italy; 12/1 England; 33/1 Czech Republic; 50/1 Greece; 100/1 Ukraine

Next Republic of Ireland manager: 5/1 Mick McCarthy; 9/1 Chris Hughton; 10/1 Marco Tardelli; 10/1 David O’Leary; 12/1 Brian McDerott; 16/1 Martin O’Neill; 20/1 Liam Brady; 20/1 Pat Fenlon; 20/1 Johnny Giles; 20/1 Noel King; 25/1 BAR

Holt To Join Lambert At Villa Park?

Grant Holt looks even more certain to be leaving Norwich after West Ham made an offer for him and William Hill make him 4/7 to join Sam Allardyce’s side, 11/8 to join former manager, Paul Lambert at Aston Villa and 9/1 to stay at Carrow Road. With Aston Villa now having confirmed Lambert as their manager and given the Villain’s recent propensity to only keep their managers for the one season, Hills are offering 5/2 that the former Norwich man is not in charge on the first day of the 2013/14 season. Lambert is 1/9 to take Villa to a higher position than their 16th position that they finished under Alex McLeish.

“Lambert is a fantastic manager and we fully expect him to lead Villa up the table next year,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “He did have some good players at his disposal at Carrow Road and he could be joined by one of his old cohorts at Villa Park should West Ham not bag Grant Holt.”

Hills make Chris Hughton the 5/4 favourite to replace Lambert, with Malky Macky 7/4 and Steve Bruce 3/1.

Who will Grant Holt be playing for at the start of the 2012/13 Premier League season: 4/7 West Ham; 11/8 Aston Villa; 9/1 Norwich; 12/1 Sunderland; 16/1 Everton; 20/1 Tottenham; 25/1 Stoke; 33/1 Newcastle; 33/1 Fulham; 40/1 Liverpool

Paul Lambert to still be at Villa on the start of the 2013/14 season: 2/7 yes; 5/2 no

Aston Villa to finish higher than 2011/12 season: 1/9 Higher than 16th; 5/1 lower than 16th; 9/1 Finish 16th

Next permanent Norwich manager: 5/4 Chris Hughton; 7/4 Malky Mackay; 3/1 Steve Bruce; 6/1 Lee Clark; 6/1 Tim Sherwood; 10/1 Ian Culverhouse; 12/1 Ole Gunnar Solksjaer; 14/1 Gus Poyet; 14/1 Ala Curbishley; 14/1Gianfranco Zola; 14/1 Ian Holloway; 16/1 Roberto Martinez; 16/1 Mick McCarthy; 25/1 BAR

Barton Backed For Big Ban…scholes Set For Sensational Return

William Hill have cut the price of Joey Barton’s ban being eight or more games following 90% of all bets placed on the market being for over. He is now 4/7 to face a ban of over 7.5 games (5/4 not to).

“Joey has always been known for his pugnacious style, but he may have overstepped the line one too many times and our punters think the FA are ready to throw the book at the QPR captain,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Gary Neville has been called up to the England backroom staff and William Hill make the former United man 14/1 to be the next boss of the England National team. With the 23 man squad set to be named on Wednesday, William Hill are betting on which players make the grade. Joe Hart, Wayne Rooney, Ashley Cole and Steven Gerrard are 1/100 to be on the plane while Scott Parker, Gary Cahill and Gareth Barry are 1/50.

Surprisingly, Paul Scholes has claimed that he would be open for a call up to the Euros squad and he is 6/4 to go.

William Hill odds:

Next Villa Manager: 7/4 Roberto Martinez; 5/2 Paul Lambert; 10/1 Neil Lennon; 10/1 Rafael Benitez; 12/1 Mick McCarthy; 12/1 Ole Gunnar Solksjaer; 12/1 Alan Curbishley; 12/1 Bob Bradley; 12/1 Brendan Rodgers; 12/1 Kevin MacDonald; 14/1 Roberto Di Matteo; 16/1 Brian McDermott; 16/1 Claudio Ranieri; 16/1 Gianfranco Zola; 16/1 Louis Van Gaal; 16/1 Marco Bielsa; 16/1 Paolo Di Canio; 16/1 Gus Poyet; 16/1 Lee Clark; 16/1 Chris Hughton; 20/1 BAR

When will a non Manchester side next win the Premier League: 7/4 2012/13; 11/4 2013/14; 9/2 2014/15; 2/1 2015/16 or later

Roy Hodgson 5/2 To See Contract Out Until 2016: Curbishley Favourite For West Brom Role!

Roy Hodgson is widely expected to become England manager in the next 24 hours but William Hill are already betting on when he will leave the position. Should England have a shocker at the European Championships, he could be on his way and he is 14/1 to go this year. His contract is expected to last until after the 2016 Championships and that is the favourite to be his year of departure at 5/2.

“Despite not being everyone’s first choice, the odds suggest that England will stick with Hodgson until 2016,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Hodgson favourites who could make the squad under their former boss include Bobby Zamora (2/1), Joe Cole (7/1) and Andy Johnson (4/1). Those who could miss out are his former Liverpool cohorts and Hills offer 6/1 that no Reds player starts England’s first Euros match.

West Brom will need to find a successor for Roy Hodgson and Alan Curbishley is the 3/1 early favourite to get the job, with Chris Hughton 4/1 and Michael Appleton a 6/1 shot.

William Hill Odds:

Year Hodgson goes: 14/1 2012, 11/2 2013, 11/4 2014, 5/1 2015, 5/2 2016, 7/2 2017 or later

To make the euro 2012 squad: 2/1 Bobby Zamora, 4/1 Andy Johnson, 7/1 Joe Cole, 33/1 Paul Konchesk

6/1 No Liverpool player in the starting line up v France

Next West Brom Manager: 3/1 Alan Curbishley, 4/1 Chris Hughton, 6/1 Michael Appleton, 8/1 Roberto Martinez, 10/1 Lee Clark, 10/1 Steve Bruce, 12/1 Dean Kiely, 14/1 Tony Mowbray, 14/1 Derek McInnes, 14/1 Gus Poyet, 16/1 Gianfranco Zola, 16/1 Mick McCarthy, 16/1 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, 16/1 Rafael Benitez, 20/1 Paul Lambert, 20/1 Brendan Rodgers, 20/1 Darren Ferguson, 20/1 Dave Jones, 20/1 Glenn Hoddle, 20/1 Sam Allardyce, 20/1 Walter Smith, 25/1 Gordon Strachan, 25/1 Ray Wilkins, 25/1 Dougie Freedman, 25/1 Roy Keane, 33/1 Alan Shearer, 33/1 Gary Megson, 33/1 Paul Ince, 50/1 Bryan Robson.

United Now 1/6 For Title, Wolves As Good As Down – 5/1 For No More Wins

Manchester City failed to win again although a rousing comeback prevented them from losing, but all the impetus has been handed to Manchester United in the race for the Premier League title. William Hill are now offering 4/1 that City win the title (United are 1/6). It is 3/1 for the title race to be decided by the time the Manchester derby comes around on the 30th April. Roberto Mancini is Even money to no longer to be in charge by the start of next season (8/11 to still be there).

Wolves have been cut adrift at the bottom of the table and William Hill make them 1/20 to be relegated. Terry Connor has failed to win as boss of Wolves and William Hill make him 1/8 to no longer be in charge on the first day of next season (9/2 to still be there as boss). In what would be an embarrassing climb down, Hills offer 12/1 that Mick McCarthy returns to Molineux as manager this season. Wolves are 5/1 to fail to win for the rest of the season.

“In a vital day at both ends of the table, Wolves appear to have condemned themselves to Championship football while Manchester United will now claim to have one hand on the Premier League trophy,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill Odds:

Premier League relegation: 1/20 Wolves (8/1 to stay up); 2/5 Wigan (7/4); 2/5 QPR (7/4); 7/4 Blackburn; 11/4 Bolton; 12/1 Aston Villa

United 16/1 To Win All Their Remaining Matches…how Many Points Will 17th Get?

Manchester United moved four points clear of Manchester City and William Hill make them 4/9 to retain the Premier League title with City 13/8 to win it for the first time. At the other end of the table, another heavy defeat for Wolves saw them slip to the bottom of the table and Hills think that the writing could be on the wall for Terry Connor’s men, offering 1/6 that they are relegated.

Alex Ferguson has claimed that his side need to win all of their remaining games if they are to win their 20th title and William Hill make them 16/1 to do so.

“There is no doubting that Manchester City will push their rivals all the way, but United now have the upper hand and if they win their remaining matches, will win the league,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Wolves have really struggled since dispensing of Mick McCarthy and Hills are offering 5/6 that Terry Connor is still in charge on the final day of the season (5/6 that he is not). It is not thought that the 40 point mark will be necessary for the team finishing in 17th place and Hills make 31 points or less their 21/10 favourite with 32 or 33 5/2.

Chelsea won their fourth consecutive match with Roberto Di Matteo in charge and William Hill make them 4/1 to avoid defeat in their next five matches, although they are 5/6 to lose next weekend against Manchester City.

Premier League Outright: 4/9 Manchester United; 13/8 Manchester City; 250/1 Arsenal; 250/1 Tottenham; 500/1 Chelsea

Premier League Relegation: 1/6 Wolves; 1/4 Wigan; 2/5 QPR; 5/4 Bolton; 2/1 Blackburn; 33/1 BAR

Premier League To Stay Up: 4/11 Blackburn; 4/7 Bolton; 7/4 QPR; 11/4 Wigan; 7/2 Wolves

Will Terry Connor be in charge of Wolves on the final day of the season: 5/6 yes; 5/6 no

How many points will 17th position get: 11/2 38 or more; 7/2 36 or 37; 11/4 34 or 35; 5/2 32 or 33; 21/10 31 or less

16/1 Manchester United to win all of their remaining games of 2011/12 season

When will Chelsea next lose: 5/6 Manchester City; 7/2 Tottenham; 5/1 Benfica (a); 16/1 Aston Villa; 16/1 Benfica (h); 4/1 unbeaten in any of these matches

26 Hours Without A Goal: How Long Before Torres Bags Again?

5/1 TITLE IS DECIDED BY GOAL DIFFERENCE

Fernando Torres finally scored after 26 hours for Chelsea at the weekend and William Hill are offering odds on how long it will be until he nets again. He is Even money to fail to score within two hours of play, although he is 7/2 to score within the next hour. Torres could well go on a scoring run now and Hills make him 8/11 to outscore Andy Carroll between now and the end of the season and he is 2/9 to outscore Carlos Tevez in the same time frame.

Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed that his side’s 5-0 win against Wolves was vital due to the fact that he thinks that the title may be decided by goal difference. William Hill are offering 5/1 that he is correct and that the title is settled one way or the other by goal difference.

“This title run-in could be one of the closest ever and odds of 5/1 suggest that goal difference may be the deciding factor,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Despite Sunderland’s recent good form, William Hill think they have left their charge up the table too late and make Newcastle 1/10 to win bragging rights in the North East by finishing higher than their rivals (Sunderland are 11/2 to do so). They are 8/15 to finish in the top half of the table, something that would have seemed preposterous when Martin O’Neill took over the club (they are 11/8 to finish in the bottom half of the league). Blackburn have shown recent signs of improvement and they are out to 2/1 to be relegated (4/11 to stay up).

Mick McCarthy to be reinstated as Wolves manager this season 8/1. ‘Although they only had ten players for much of the game Wolves capitulated against United and TC’s record suggests he is a man who would rather be doing the job he used to do alongside Mick McCarthy. We think it is unlikely but not impossible that Mick could come back to inspire a bid to avoid relegation,’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. Wolves are currently 1/6 to relegated with Hills, 7/2 to stay up, but 6/5 favourites to finish bottom.

How long until Torres’ next goal: 7/2 0-60 minutes; 5/2 61-120 minutes; 5/1 121-180 minutes; 1/1 180 minutes or more

Who will score more EPL goals between now until the end of the season:
2/9 Torres; 3/1 Tevez
8/11 Torres; 1/1 Carroll

Who will finish higher in the league: 1/10 Newcastle; 11/2 Sunderland

Sunderland finishing position: 8/15 top half; 11/8 bottom half

5/1 Premier League title to be won on goal difference

Premier League relegation: 1/6 Wolves; 1/4 Wigan; 2/5 QPR; 5/4 Bolton; 2/1 Blackburn; 33/1 BAR

Premier League to stay up: 4/11 Blackburn; 4/7 Bolton; 7/4 QPR; 11/4 Wigan; 7/2 Wolves

To finish bottom: 6/5 Wolves; 15/8 Wigan; 5/2 QPR; 9/1 Bolton; 14/1 Blackburn

Clark Quickly Becomes Leeds Favourite…europa League Specials

Lee Clark was sacked by Huddersfield on Wednesday and William Hill have seen plenty of cash for him to become the new manager of Leeds. Just an hour after Huddersfield announced their decision, Clark became Hills 11/8 favourite for the Leeds job with Mick McCarthy 3/1 and Neil Warnock 9/2.

“There is no doubting that Lee Clark is a talented young manager and he swiftly became favourite for the Leeds job as soon as he was relieved of his duties at Huddersfield,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Whether he would jump back into management so soon though is another matter.”
