Carroll 6/4 For Another Poor Campaign

With rumours persisting about whether or not England striker Andy Carroll has a future at Liverpool under Brendan Rodgers, William Hill have quoted the big striker to scorer fewer than nine goals in the Premier League this term. West Ham are rumoured to have agreed a loan deal but Newcastle could also be in the running. He is 7/4 to score between nine and 13 goals and 7/4 for more than 13.

Andy Carroll English Premier League Goals 2012/13: 6/4 Under 9, 7/4 9-13, 7/4 Over 13

Avb Closes In On Spurs Job

AVB Closes In on Spurs Job

Despite Andre Villas Boas claiming talk about him joining Tottenham as lies William Hill still quote him at 4/11 to become the new boss at White Hart Line.

Laurent Blanc suffered disappointment with France’s elimination from Euro 2012 last night but he is 8/1 to take over from Harry Redknapp. Fabio Capello is second favourite at 5/1 but money has been placed on ex Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola at 16/1.

“Money has been seen for Guardiola and Blanc but despite AVB playing down rumours of his move to Spurs we expect him to be in the hot seat at White Hart Lane sooner rather than later,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

Next Tottenham Manager: 4/11 Villas Boas, 5/1 Capello, 8/1 Blanc, 8/1 Klinsmann, 14/1 Moyes, 14/1 Hoddle, 16/1 Rangnick, 16/1 Guardiola, 16/1 Martinez, 16/1 Sherwood, 16/1 Hiddink, 20/1 Benitez, 25/1 BAR

Hatem Has Arfa Chance Of Getting Goal Of The Season…is Motd’s Dream Team On The Way Out?

Hatem Ben Arfa scored one of the goals of the season for Newcastle against Bolton on Monday although William Hill think that his effort still falls some way behind Peter Crouch’s effort vs Manchester City. Crouch is 4/7 to win Match of the Day’s annual Goal of the season competition, with Ben Arfa 6/1. Hills also offer 15/8 about any other goal winning the accolade.

“With Ben Arfa and a couple of screamers from Robin van Persie this season, there is nothing to say it is a Crouchy certainty, but he has set quite the benchmark,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

With rumours suggesting that the current Match of the Day ‘dream team’ of Lineker, Lawrenson and Hansen may be squeezed out to make way for younger blood, Hills are offering 7/1 that none of them return to the studio next season, it is however, 4/9 that they all return.

2/1 For Balotelli AND Mancini To Have Left By Next Season

Hills are offering 2/1 that both Mancini and Balotelli will have left Manchester City by the start of next season, 1/1 that just one of them will still be there and 9/4 that they are both still there.

They also offer 4/7 that Mancini will still be there (5/4 he has gone) and 8/13 that Balotelli has gone (6/5 he is still there).

“Mancini has shown his forgiving side in dealing with Carlos Tevez, but Balotelli may well have pushed his manager over the edge,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Match of the Day Goal of the Season: 4/7 Peter Crouch; 6/1 Hatem Ben Arfa; 15/8 Any other player

How many of Lineker, Hansen and Lawrenson will be on MOTD next season: 7/1 none; 2/1 one or two; 4/9 three

Captain Scott Slashed For France Match…tevez Start Anytime Soon Could Be Stretch…mourinho Househunt Sparks 4/9 Gamble

Scott Parker is strongly rumoured to have been offered the England captain’s armband for tonight’s match vs Holland and this has seen his odds of captaining the Three Lions against France in the Euros slashed by William Hill. Having previously been 7/4 second favourite, he is now 11/8 joint favourite with Steven Gerrard (whose odds have drifted from 10/11).

“Stuart Pearce has reportedly made Scott Parker his captain, but he may not be in charge when the Euros roll around,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “A new manager may well have a very different opinion of who should lead the country.”

Carlos Tevez pulled on a Manchester City shirt for the first time since September (albeit for the reserves) and William Hill make him 1/8 to make an appearance for City at any point during the rest of the season (9/2 not to). He is 9/2 to feature at any point during the Bolton game this weekend, although he is 2/1 to fail to feature for the City senior team during the next five matches.

“Tevez looked somewhat distressed (as did the shirt that he had squeezed into) and he would appear to be a long way from match fitness,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Jose Mourinho has been spotted in the UK, sparking rumours that he is set for a return to the Premier League. William Hill make him 4/9 to no longer be in charge of Real Madrid by the first game of next season. He is 5/2 to become the next permanent Manchester United manager, 7/2 for Chelsea, 6/1 Tottenham and 14/1 Arsenal.

When will Tevez next play: 9/2 Bolton; 11/4 Swansea; 10/3 Chelsea; 4/1 Stoke; 6/1 Sunderland; 2/1 none of these fixtures

Carlos Tevez to play for Manchester City again: 1/8 yes; 9/2 no

Mourinho at Madrid on first game of next season: 13/8 yes; 4/9 no

Mourinho to be next permanent Arsenal manager: 14/1

Mourinho to be next permanent Manchester Utd Manager: 5/2

Mourinho to be next permanent Tottenham manager: 6/1

Mourinho to be next permanent Chelsea manager: 7/2

England captain for Euro 2012 game vs France: 11/8 Steven Gerrard; 11/8 Scott Parker; 4/1 Joe Hart; 10/1 Frank Lampard; 14/1 Gareth Barry; 20/1 Ashley Cole; 33/1 Rio Ferdinand

Football Punters Taking Mick

FOOTBALL PUNTERS TAKING THE MICK?

William Hill have cut Mick McCarthy, who was a 12/1 shot after his side drew with Spurs recently, to 4/7 favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his club. ‘The internet has been alive with rumours about Mick McCarthy’s future and punters have been keen to back him to be the next Prem boss to go’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills make Blackburn’s Steve Kean 9/2 second favourite with AVB and Owen Coyle both offered at 8/1 with Roberto Martinez 10/1, Alex McLeish 11/1 and Harry Redknapp 12/1.
Hills offer 8/1 that no more managers will depart their clubs this season.

WOLVES are 10/11 to be relegated and 13/2 to finish bottom of the table with Hills who make them 4/5 to stay up.

Beckham’s U-turn And Carroll Back To Geordie Shores?

Following the news that both David Beckham and PSG have pulled the plug on his supposed move to Paris, William Hill are now offering 4/11 that his next competitive game is for the LA Galaxy and 4/1 that he signs for any other MLS side. Should he move to England, QPR are the favourites to sign him at 12/1 with Arsenal 16/1. A return to Spain looks the most unlikely outcome with Malaga the favourites of the Spanish sides to sign him up at 25/1.

Hills offer 1/3 that David Beckham starts the first match for Team GB at the Olympics.

“In a full U turn, it looks like Becks will now be staying in America and more than likely, turning out for the Galaxy once again,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Andy Carroll has hardly set the world alight since his arrival at Liverpool from Newcastle and rumours are suggesting that he could well be returning to the North East. Hills make him 10/3 to return to Newcastle, whether permanently or on loan and Hills think that Darren Bent could well be on his way to Anfield, offering 9/2 that he signs for Liverpool in January.

David Beckham’s Next Competitive Game: 4/11 LA Galaxy; 4/1 Any other MLS team; 12/1 QPR; 16/1 Arsenal; 20/1 Fulham; 25/1 Anzhi; 25/1 Chelsea; 25/1 Malaga; 25/1 Man Utd…others on request

10/3 Andy Carroll to return to Newcastle in January 2012 (1/5 not to)

9/2 Darren Bent to sign for Liverpool in January 2012 (1/8 not to)

Wednesday’s Football

Manchester United are firm favourites to defeat Newcastle, despite losing to Blackburn and William Hill make them 8/11 to win in the North East. Newcastle are 4/1 and the game should signal the return of Wayne Rooney to the starting line up. William Hill offer 6/4 that his first action during the game is to score a goal while he is 4/1 to be booked and 40/1 to see a straight red first. Rooney is 15/8 to outscore Demba Ba during the game and 5/2 to outscore Javier Hernandez. The last time these two sides played, Manchester United conceded a highly controversial penalty and they are 11/2 to concede another.

“All eyes will be on Rooney as he returns to the pitch following his suspension and we think he could well find the back of the net,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Landon Donovan could return for Everton against Bolton and Hills make him 9/2 to open the scoring and 6/5 to score anytime. It is Even money for him to be subbed before doing anything else in the match, although he is 2/1 to score a goal before that.

What will Rooney do first vs Newcastle: 6/4 Score; 2/1 finish match; 11/4 subbed; 4/1 yellow card; 40/1 red card; 66/1 own goal

Rooney vs Ba (most goals): 15/8 Rooney; 10/3 Ba; 5/6 Tie

Rooney vs Hernandez (most goals): 5/2 Rooney; 11/4 Hernandez; 8/11 Tie

Manchester United to concede a penalty: 11/2

What will Landon Donovan do first vs Bolton: 1/1 Subbed; 2/1 Goal; 10/3 Finish match; 4/1 Yellow Card; 40/1 Red Card; 50/1 Own Goal

You Bet Zamora Stays – But Will Arsene Go ?

YOU BET ZAMORA WILL STAY

William Hill make Bobby Zamora an 8/11 chance to stay with Fulham past the January transfer window, but Even money to leave before it closes. ‘The rumours have suggested all is not sweetness and light between Zamora and Jol -maybe that goal will change things’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
But Hills believe the defeat may increase Arsene Wenger’s troubles and have cut their odds for him no longer to be manager on the first day of next season from 7/2 to 11/4 – although he is a 1/ 4 chance still to be Gunners’ gaffer then.

Hills– TOP 4 FINISH- 4/11 Spurs; 8/13 Chelsea; 11/8 Arsenal; 15/8 Liverpool

TITLE ODDS- 4/6 cITY; 6/4 United; 11 Spurs; 40 Chelsea ;50 Arsenal; 100 Liverpool
