Gamble On Arsene To Stay At Arsenal…fa Cup Specials

Arsenal fans have been rallying around Arsene Wenger since their humiliating midweek defeat and in the last 48 hours, his odds of still being at the club have been backed from 8/11 to 8/13 with William Hill. Hills have also seen support for both Wenger and Robin van Persie to still be at Arsenal on the first day of next season, offered at 15/8 having previously been 2/1 (3/1 to leave). Theo Walcott has been pinpointed as one of the main underperformers at Arsenal this season and he is 7/2 to have left Arsenal by the first day of next season.

“It is safe to say that Arsene Wenger has not enjoyed the best of seasons since taking over at Arsenal but we think that he has the backing of the fans if the weight of money for him to stay is anything to go by,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Andre Villas Boas is under considerable pressure at Chelsea, although the odds of him still being there at the start of next season have come in slightly to 4/7, while Harry Redknapp is odds-against at 2/1 to still be at Spurs by the same day.

How many of Andre Villas Boas, Harry Redknapp & Wenger still at their clubs: 11/2 none; 11/8 one; 11/10 two; 11/2 all three

Theo Walcott still at Arsenal on the first day of next season: 1/6 yes; 7/2 no

Andre Villas Boas to be in charge of Chelsea on first game of next season: 4/7 yes; 5/4 no

Harry Redknapp to be Tottenham manager on the first day of 2012/13 Premier League season: 2/1 yes; 4/11 no

Arsene Wenger to be manager of Arsenal on first day of 2012/12 Premier League season: 8/13 yes; 6/5 no

AVB and Torres to have left Chelsea by the first day of next season: 11/2

How Long Will Crawley’s Cup Run Continue?

Only two matches went to replays of Saturday’s FA Cup ties and William Hill make Southampton the 4/11 favourites to qualify from their tie against Millwall, while Hills cannot split Sheffield Wednesday and Blackpool, offering 5/6 about the pair qualifying.

The biggest result, however, was Crawley’s 1-0 victory away to Hull and Hills are offering odds on when the Red Devils get knocked out of the competition offering 2/9 that they do so in the fifth round. They are 300/1 to go all the way and win the trophy and 125/1 to finish as runners up.

“Crawley are repeating the feats that took them so far last season and while they have captured the imagination of the FA Cup this year, we think they may well come a cropper in the next round,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Gareth, Gunn And Sven – Will They Stay Or Will They Go ?

WILL WIN, LOSE AND DRAW BOSSES STAY AT CLUBS ALL SEASON ?
THREE HIGH profile bosses had very different starts to the season. Gareth Southgate’s Middlesbro draw with Sheffield United and fans appeared less than impressed; Norwich’s Bryan Gunn oversaw a humiliating 1-7 defeat to local rivals Colchester; while Sven Goran Erikkson saw Notts County start off with a 5-0 drubbing of Bradford.
William Hill now make Southgate 5/6 to survive, 5/6 to leave by last day season; Gunn 4/9 to go, 13/8 to survive; Sven 6/4 to leave, 1/2 to stay.
‘These three managers are all under pressure for very different reasons but their futures are fascinatingly poised. Southgate seems finally to have used up his goodwill with supporters; Norwich’s result will haunt them for decades and heap pressure on one of the most popular figures ever associated with the club while the more successful County are the more likely bigger clubs are to come courting Sven’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

LATEST William Hill LEAGUE ONE ODDS….5/2 Leeds; 7/1 Charlton; 8/1 Huddersfield; 10 MK Dons; 12 Norwich; 14 Brighton; Colchester; Millwall; 16 Brentford; 25 Southampton; 33 Gillingham.

LEAGUE TWO…3/1 Notts Co; 6/1 Rotherham; 10/1 Bournemouth; 11/1 Shrewsbury; 14 Bury; Northampton; Rochdale.

WILL UNITED BEN START ENGLAND’S FIRST WORLD CUP FINALS MATCH?
WITH BEN FOSTER likely to get the nod to replace injured Edwin van der Saar in Manchester United’s goal, William Hill are offering him at 7/1 to start in goal for England when they play their first match of the 2010 World Cup finals.Team-mate Michael Owen is 6/4 with Hills to get in the World Cup squad, 1/2 not to, and both will hope to do well in the Community Shield this weekend for which Hills make Chelsea 8/11 favourites to lift the trophy with United at Even money.
Owen is 7/4 to score in 90mins play, 6/1 to open the scoring and 10/1 to net two or more.
90 minute odds: 17/10 United; 2/1 draw; 7/5 Chelsea.
