PUNTERS KEANE TO BACK ROY FOR FOREST
William Hill have suspended their market for who will be the next Nottingham Forest manager after taking a bet of £5000 on Roy Keane at odds of 2/1, shortening him to Even money but continuing to be asked for hefty wagers at that price.
There have been a number of well backed contenders to succeed Steve McClaren such as Karl Robinson, Billy Davies and Alan Shearer but after seeing a string of bets of up to £5000 for Roy Keane with little support for anybody else, we have decided to suspend the market in case an appointment is imminent, said Hills spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Evens Roy Keane
11/4 John Pemberton

YOU BET PRESTON FANS WILL STILL BE BROWNED OFF!
Despite appointing Phil Brown as their new manager, Preston are 7/4 with William Hill to remain in the Championship and 2/5 to be relegated – while Hills offer Even money that Brown will get them off the bottom of the table at any stage of the rest of the season, but Even money that they never manage to rise above that position.
‘Brown seems to relish a challenge – which is just as well considering Preston’s current plight’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
After Sir Alex Ferguson called back all of the Man U players on loan at Preston, Hills offer 5/2 that any United player will figure in the Preston side for any Championship game during the rest of the season.
Hills also offer 25/1 that Brown will keep his players on the pitch during half time of any Championship match this season, and 8/1 that the new boss will entertain the fans by singing on the pitch at any stage of the Championship season.’Brown is one of the game’s more eccentric characters so Preston fans can probably look forward to one or two surprise exploits’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
WHERE WILL LIVERPOOL FINISH THE SEASON?
William Hill have opened a book on where Liverpool will finish the Premier League season in the table and make 5th-7th their 11/8 favourite. ‘Perhaps it is something of a damning indictment on the general current lack of quality in the Premier League that a club performing as badly as Liverpool can still be predicted to finish on the heels of the top four’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills…Where will Liverpool finish?
5th – 7th
8th – 10th
11th – 14th
15th – 17th

************William Hill MOTD….MONEYBAGS’ DERBY SPECIALS**********
WILL MOTD INTRODUCE NEW TALKING HEADS?
WITH Match of the Day coming under some criticism for the recent quality of its punditry, William Hill have opened a book on a number of potential replacements for the existing panel, offering odds about whether they will be invited to guest/appear on the show before the end of the season. And Hills reckon that the ever newsworthy Robbie Savage is the most likely to turn up on the sofa – quoting him at 5/2 to do so. ‘You’d imagine that if the powers that be at MOTD are looking to audition for new pundits the best way of doing so would be by trying them out on the programme – so we’ve made Savage favourite, closely followed by Martin O’Neill and Phil Brown, both of whom would appear to have few other things to be doing if asked!’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

William Hill have slashed the price of Alan Curbishley becoming the new Aston Villa manager from 10/1 to 4/1 following an overnight gamble that was sparked by a rumoured meeting with Randy Lerner. Conversely, Kevin MacDonald has been eased out from 4/6 to 5/4. Sven Goran Eriksson is the 5/1 third favourite with Gerard Houllier 10/1. The Mark Hughes gamble has ended and he is now 16/1 from a low of 3/1.
It looks like Curbs met with Randy Lerner yesterday, so he must be on the shortlist; however the odds seem to suggest that Lerner may well stick with MacDonald, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
William Hill Next Villa Manager: 5/4 Kevin MacDonald; 4/1 Alan Curbishley; 5/1 Sven Goran Eriksson; 10/1 Gerard Houllier; 11/1 David Moyes; 14/1 Ronald Koeman; 16/1 Alex McLeish; 16/1 Mark Hughes; 20/1 Paul Lambert; 20/1 Martin Jol; 20/1 Jurgen Klinsmann; 20/1 Gary Megson; 20/1 Bob Bradley; 20/1 Gareth Southgate; 20/1 Phil Brown; 25/1 BAR

WILL PUBLIC PUNCH-UP HASTEN BROWN DEPARTURE?
HULL CITY boss Phil Brown has become odds on favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his position this season, with William Hill making him 4/7 favourite to be the next to go after a public row between two of his highest profile players added to his woes following their recent 5-1 thumping by Everton. ‘Phil Brown seemed to have survived the storm which surrounded him earlier in the season, but all of a sudden he is back in the unwanted limelight and his long term future at the club is looking ever more dubious’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

William Hill have today seen a substantial & sustained gamble on Gianfranco Zola to be the next Premiership manager to get the boot. This morning Hills were quoting 5/1 but during the course of the day they have cut the price five times before suspending at 2:35, with one London based customer looking to place a five figure bet.
“They were backing Zola at any price and there must be a rumour that either he is walking or the likely new owners are not Zola fans,” said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.
