Kelly To Replace Cahill…but He Will Not Replace Him In Starting Xi

Gary Cahill has been withdrawn from the England squad to add to Roy Hodgson’s woes and his replacement, Martin Kelly, is 1/3 with William Hill to see no action during the Three Lions three group games (9/4 to make any kind of appearance vs France, Ukraine or Sweden). Cahill’s injury means that a maximum of 10 of Saturday’s XI vs Belgium will be able to start against France and Hills offer 7/1 that all ten of those take their places next week. The most likely, however, is eight of the players to start at 8/11 with nine at Even money.

“Cahill will be a big loss considering the fact that it looked like he was going to be starting alongside Terry and now it looks like Lescott will have to step up to the plate,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

How any of England’s starting XI vs Belgium will start against France: 25/1 seven or fewer; 8/11 eight; 1/1 nine; 7/1 ten

Martin Kelly to make any kind of appearance during England’s group stages: 9/4 yes; 1/3 no

Bad Boy Barton Backed For No Reprieve…

Bad Boy Barton Backed For No Reprieve…

Joey Barton, today received a 12 match ban for his shenanigans at the end of last season and bookmakers William Hill are betting on what the outcome will be at the culmination of the inevitable appeal that will take place. Barton will undoubtedly feel aggrieved at the extent of his ban and Hills are offering 11/8 that the 12 matches are decreased. It is even money that the ban stays the same and 4/1 that it is increased.

“Barton gives the impression that he has turned over a new leaf,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “It seems as though the FA, however, have taken a dim view as to his antics in the last game of the season and we reckon his ban will remain as it is regardless of appeal.”

Will Joey Barton’s Ban Be…11/8 decreased, 1/1 stay same; 4/1 increased

How Will Premier League Title Be Decided ?
HOW WILL PREMIER LEAGUE TITLE BE DECIDED?

ALTHOUGH MAN CITY ARE 1/9 favourites to win the Premier League title just how they will achieve that – or even whether they will – remains to be seen. William Hill have opened a book on how they or United will land the title – and make City 8/15 to win on goal difference, and 7/2 to win by two points. ‘City won’t really care how they win the title, but there are plenty of potential outcomes for punters to speculate on’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills also offer 4/1 that 31 or more will be scored, 1/ 4 that 29 or fewer will hit the back of the net. ‘Goals seem to have been plentiful – and often spectacular this season and it would be fitting for the record to be broken on the final day’

Tevez 7/2 To Make Scoring Return From The Bench…

Carlos Tevez could make an astonishing comeback for Manchester City against Chelsea on Wednesday and William Hill are offering 7/2 that he comes off the bench and grabs himself a goal. Tevez is 5/4 to score anytime during the game and 5/1 to score the first goal of the game. Hills think that should he make a comeback for City this season he will more than likely be firing blanks, offering 11/10 that he scores no goals for the rest of the season.

On the other side on Wednesday will be Fernando Torres who grabbed a brace on Sunday and William Hill are offering Even money that he fails to score for at least two hours from the time of his last goal on Sunday (currently stands at 5 minutes).

Tevez to come off bench and score: 7/2 – void if he starts and void if not on bench
Tev goals rest of season: 11/10 none; 5/2 one; 4/12 two; 4/1 three or more

McLEISH EVEN MONEY TO LEAVE VILLA BEFORE NEXT SEASON

William Hill offer Even money that Alex McLeish will cease to be Villa boss before the start of next season but make him a shade of odds-on at 8/11 still to be there. ‘Villa fans are clearly running out of patience with their side this season and McLeish is bearing the brunt of their complaints, regardless of how much leeway he has had to bring in quality players’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

You Bet England’s Women Quarter Final Failure

England’s Women eased through to the Quarter final stage of the women’s World Cup although William Hill think that a place in the Semi Finals will be a step too far for Hope Powell’s offering 4/7 that they are knocked out in the next round. They are 2/1 to be knocked out in the Semi Finals, 7/1 to be runners up and 20/1 to win the tournament. Kelly Smith, once again, failed to find the net against Japan and Hills are offering Even money that she fails to score a goal at any point during the tournament.

“England finally upped their game against Japan but the odds suggest they will be faced with an uphill challenge, whoever the face in the next round,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

England Women Hills Odds:

Stage of elimination: 4/7 Quarter Final; 2/1 Semi Final; 7/1 Runner Up; 20/1 Winner

1/1 Kelly Smith to score during the World Cup 2011
