***************************************William Hill WEEKEND PREMIER LEAGUE SPECIALS*******************
SPURS DOMINATE PFA BETTING
William Hill have installed Gareth Bale as 9/4 favourite to win the PFA Player of the Year Award, and his team-mate Van der Vaart is 5/1 second favourite. ‘Spurs seem to hold a strong hand for the PFA this year with both Bale and Van der Vaart having been very impressive’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills also offer: 6/1 Tevez; 13/2 Nasri; 11/1 Berbatov; 12/1 Fabregas; Drogba; 14/1 Nani; 16/1 Carroll; Scholes; Vidic; 20/1 Adam.
WILL CHARLIE STILL BE BLACKPOOL’S DARLING BY FEBRUARY?
William Hill make Blackpool’s Charlie Adam an odds-on shot to leave the club during the January transfer window – quoting him at 8/11 to go and Evens still to be a Tangerine when the window closes. ‘Ian Holloway is talking up his chances of holding on to Charlie Adam, but the vultures may be circling over Bloomfield Road’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
CITY 5/1 TO BE FIRST TEAM TO BEAT UNITED
William Hill, who make Manchester United 11/1 to remain undefeate all season in the Premier League, make Chelsea 10/3 favourites to be the first club to loower their colours this season, with neighbours Manchester City 5/1 second favourites. ‘The majority of football pundits keep insisting that United are not good enough to remain undefeated all season, and they just carry on remaining undefeated’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
MEANWHILE, Hills HAVE CUT THEIR ODDS ABOUT UNITED REMAINING UNBEATEN ALL SEASON – BUT STILL FAILING TO WIN THE LEAGUE TITLE FROM 100/1 TO 50/1. ‘A few punters stepped in for the 100/1 and it is far from an impossible scenario’ said Sharpe.

Birmingham H 14/1
Blackpool A 11/1
Aston Villa H 14/1
Wolves A 12/1
Man City H 5/1

WILL PULIS AND HUGHES SHAKE EACH OTHER WARMLY BY THE HAND – OR, PERHAPS, THROAT?

And Hills are offering 2/1 that the pair will not shake hands after the final whistle (must be shown on tv) of the game, and 4/11 that they will. ‘The Hughes-Pulis affair is beginning to turn into a long-running feud to rival Bridge versus Terry – but maybe they will bury the hatchet this weekend – hopefully not in each other!’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
