Pardew Loses His Rag And Loses Punters Their Red Card Dough

Alan Pardew became the first Premier League manager sent to the stands and not one William Hill punter backed the Newcastle boss to see red which was offered at 16/1. The most popular selection was 6/1 favourite, Mark Hughes, who, despite his sides poor performance and the warm summer weather managed to remain relatively cool.

Mark Hughes is now the 10/1 favourite to be the next manager to be sent to the stands with David Moyes and Paul Lambert 11/1. Pardew has been cut slightly after his indiscretion to 14/1.

“Alan Pardew’s momentary loss of control will have everyone talking although the odds would suggest that he may well have learnt his lesson,” said Hill’ spokesman Joe Crilly.

Jermain Defoe scored for Spurs, but it was not enough to save his Spurs side from defeat and William Hill offer 11/8 that Emmanuel Adebayor arrives at Spurs before the end of the transfer window.

Next manager to be sent to the stands: 10/1 Mark Hughes; 11/1 David Moyes; 11/1 Paul Lambert; 12/1 Adre Villas Boas; 12/1 Martin O’Neill; 12/1 Roberto Mancini; 12/1 Sam Allardyce; 12/1 Tony Pulis; 12/1Arsene Wenger; 14/1 Alan Pardew; 16/1 Chris Hughton; 16/1 Martin Jol; 16/1 Michael Laudrup; 16/1 Nigel Adkins; 16/1 Steve Clarke; 20/1 Brendan Rodgers; 20/1 Brian McDermott; 20/1 Roberto Di Matteo; 20/1 Alex Ferguson; 25/1 Roberto Martinez

Jermain Defoe Premier League goals: 9/4 1-6; 6/4 7-12; 13/8 13-18; 10/1 19 or more

Adebayor to sign for Spurs before the end of the transfer window: 11/8 yes; 8/15 no

You Bet Two Big Money Strikers Are On The Move

With Roberto Mancini all but ruling out a move for Robin van Persie this summer, William Hill have eased Manchester City’s odds of signing the Arsenal striker. Manchester United are in pole position at Even money to be Van Persie’s next club, with Italian champions Juventus 13/8. It seems to be a race between those three clubs with Barcelona fourth favourites at 20/1.

Despite Arsenal starting to make signings that could potentially keep RVP at the Emirates, it appears to be a case of too little, too late and he is 4/11 to have left the club by the start of the season.

“Rather surprisingly, Alex Ferguson has been very public in his desire to sign van Persie and this shows how desperate he is to get his man after Nasri snubbed the Reds for the Blues last year and it looks like he may well succeed,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

The other big name likely to be on the move this summer is Andy Carroll and William Hill offer 1/2 for his next club to be West Ham with Sam Allardyce reportedly keen on the big striker. He is 9/4 to return to Newcastle and 7/1 to join Aston Villa.

Robin van Persie next club: 1/1 Manchester United; 13/8 Juventus; 15/8 Manchester City; 20/1 Barcelona; 25/1 AC Milan; 25/1 PSG; 25/1 Real Madrid; 33/1 BAR

Robin van Persie to be at Arsenal on the first day of next season: 2/1 yes; 4/11 no

Andy Carroll next club: 1/2 West Ham; 9/4 Newcastle; 7/1 Aston Villa; 12/1 Tottenham; 20/1 Fulham; 20/1 AC Milan
*loan deals count

Top Premier League goalscorer: 7/1 Sergio Aguero; 7/1 Wayne Rooney; 8/1 Fernando Torres; 8/1 Robin van Persie; 16/1 Carlos Tevez; 16/1 Luis Suarez; 20/1 Danny Welbeck; 20/1 Darren Bent; 20/1 Javier Hernandez; 20/1 Lukas Podolski; 20/1 Mario Balotelli; 20/1 Nickica Jelavic; 20/1 Papiss Cisse; 25/1 Andy Carroll; 25/1 Emmanuel Adebayor; 33/1 BAR

Ac Milan Fans 6/1 To Be Carroll Singing Next Season

Andy Carroll’s name has rather surprisingly been linked with a loan move to AC Milan although William Hill do not think that particular move is on the cards, offering 1/12 that he does not make the move to the San Siro (to AC Milan). It does look likely that Carroll could make a move away from Anfield, whether on loan or permanently, with Hills offering 4/1 that he is not at Liverpool when the transfer window slams shut.

“Aquilani spent last season at AC Milan and despite the relations that may or may not have been built between the clubs because of that particular deal, we do not think a move for Andy Carroll is very likely,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Rumours suggesting that Roberto Mancini could be on his way from Manchester City may not be too wide of the mark, with William Hill making the Italian 11/2 to have left Eastlands by the time the season starts and Hills can also report that Mancini has been backed in from 33/1 to 4/1 favourite to be the first Premier League manager to leave his position.

Andy Carroll to be at AC Milan at end of transfer window: 6/1 yes; 1/12 no

Andy Carroll to have left Liverpool by the end of the transfer window: 4/1 yes; 1/7 no
*loan deals count

Roberto Mancini to be at Manchester City on the first day on 2012/13 season: 11/2 no; 1/10 yes

First Premier League manager to leave his job: 4/1 Roberto Mancini; 8/1 Sam Allardyce; 9/1 Chris Hughton; 9/1 Michael Laudrup; 9/1 Steve Clarke; 11/1 Brendan Rodgers; 11/1 Mark Hughes; 11/1 Nigel Adkins; 11/1 Roberto Di Matteo; 11/1 Roberto Martinez; 12/1 Martin Jol; 14/1 Paul Lambert; 16/1 Brian McDermott; 20/1 BAR

Mancini Magic Lost Its Shine – Evens To Have Left By Next Season

Reports have today suggested that Manchester City’s recent downturn in form could result in the loss of Roberto Mancini’s job. William Hill make the Italian Even money to have departed City by the start of next season (8/11 to still be there). Even more humiliating for City, will be the fact that the race could well be over by the time the two sides face each other at the Etihad on the 30th April. Hills offer 11/10 that is the case (4/6 it is not). Hills offer just Even money now for Manchester United to win the league by seven or more points.

“City appear to have well and truly blown it,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “The derby was being billed as a title decider but following City’s recent slump, it could all be over by then.”

Sam Allardyce has been given the deadly vote of confidence by the West Ham board, who claim his job is safe even if he fails to take the club up this season. Hills agree offering 1/3 that he is still there on the first day of next season (9/4 he is not).

Fernando Torres has shown recent good form and William Hill think his torrid time at Chelsea may be coming to an end. He is 4/6 to go to the Euros and just 1/4 to still be at Chelsea next season.

Will United have won the League by the Manchester derby: 11/10 yes; 4/6 no

How many points will Manchester United win the Premier League by: 1/1 seven points or more; 4/1 four – six points; 5/1 not win the league; 6/1 one – three points; 10/1 goal difference
