Newcastle Odds On Not To Find Ground Sponsor

ASHLEY ODDS-ON TO FAIL TO FIND ST JAMES’ SPONSOR!

WITH MIKE ASHLEY SET TO SELL naming rights to Newcastle’s St James’ Park, bookmakers William Hill have opened a book on whether those rights will actually be sold, and what the ground will be known as.
Hills believe it is unlikely that a stadium name sponsor will come forward and offer 4/7 that the ground name has either NOT changed at all by the first day of next season, or is still known as the Sports Direct Arena.
‘It is one thing putting the naming rights up for grabs, another getting the right deal – and Mr Ashley could conceivably even have changed his mind and sold the club by then’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hill’s make Tesco the most likely sponsor’s name to be added to the ground name, quoting the supermarket chain at 10/1, and also offering:
O2 – 12/1
Northern Rock 20/1
Greggs 33/1
Newcastle Brown 33/1
NE Tourism 50/1
Newcastle Building Society 50/1
Compare The Meerkat/Market 66/1
Tony Blair 100/1
Cheryl Cole 100/1
UK Coal 100/1
Sting Stadium 100/1
Gazza Stadium 500/1
Ant & Dec 1000/1
(others on request)

Newcastle Odds On Not To Rename Stadium

WILL NEWCASTLE GET STADIUM SPONSOR? YOU BET THEY MIGHT NOT…..

WITH MIKE ASHLEY SET TO SELL naming rights to Newcastle’s St James’ Park, bookmakers William Hill have opened a book on whether those rights will actually be sold, and what the ground will be known as. Hills believe it is unlikely that a sponsor will come forward and offer 4/7 that the ground name has NOT changed at all by the first day of next season, and 5/4 that it HAS gained a sponsor’s appendage by then. ‘It is one thing putting the naming rights up for grabs, another getting the right deal – and Mr Ashley could quote conceivably have changed his mind and sold the club by then’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
And Hill’s make Tesco the most likely sponsor’s name to be added to the ground name, quoting the supermarket chain at 16/1, and also offering:
Northern Rock 20/1
Sports Direct 25/1
Greggs 33/1
Newcastle Brown 33/1
NE Tourist 50/1
Newcastle Building Society 50/1
Compare The Meerkat/Market 66/1
Tony Blair 100/1
Cheryl Cole 100/1
UK Coal 100/1
Paul Gascoigne Stadium 500/1
Ant & Dec 1000/1

WILL FABIO BE TAKING THE MICHAEL?

AFTER his Carling Cup goal on Tuesday night, William Hill have cut their odds for Michael Owen to make Fabio Capello’s World Cup squad from 5/2 to 9/4 – and offer 1/3 that he will miss out. ‘Owen really needs a run of games and goals, which Fergie doesn’t currently looking like giving him, so although he appears to be fit again he isn’t getting the games which would enhance his prospects of recapturing his best form and forcing Fabio’s hand’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

SWINE FLU 6/1 TO STRIKE PREMIER LEAGUE

William Hill offer 6/1 that one or more Premier League matches will be postponed because of swine flu this season. ‘Several clubs are apparently suffering from swine flu, so it is not impossible that games could be put at risk if entire squads are struck down’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. It is 1/12 with Hills that there will be NO swine flu postponements.
