Bookies Bashed By Blatter? Goal Line Tech Looks A Certainty

After Sepp Blatter’s comments regarding the use of goal line technology William Hill have slashed the price for it to be in place for the first match of the 2014 World Cup from 7/4 to 1/1 but it is 8/11 that it won’t be ready in time.
The more likely stage for introduction could be for the first match of the 2016 European Championships. William Hill are odds on at 5/6 that goal line technology to be used that summer in France.

“Goal line technology looks a certainty, it is just a question of when rather than if it is introduced,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

Goal Line Technology to be used at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil: 8/11 No, 1/1 Yes

Goal Line Technology to be used at the 2016 European Championships in France: 5/6 Yes

Di Matteo Gets Chelsea Job: Favourite To Last At Least A Year!

Roberto Di Matteo has been confirmed as the new Chelsea manager and after his incredible work in the second half of the season, Hills think that he will last at least a year in his new position. Di Matteo is 1/2 to still be in charge for the first game of the 2013- 2014 season and 6/4 not to be. Should Roman Abramovich decide it is not working out Hills offer 8/1 that Pep Guardiola is the man in the hot seat come the start of the 2013-14 season.

“Di Matteo came in last season and performed admirably and the odds suggest he will be given a fair crack of the whip,” said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.

Roberto Di Matteo to be manager at the start of the 2013/14 season: 1/2 yes; 6/4 no

8/1 Pep Guardiola to be Chesea manager at the start of the 2013/14 season

Balotelli 4/1 To Be Suspended This Season-City Odds On For Top Two!
Mario Balotelli’s behavior continues to astound and Hills are offering 4/1 that his club suspend him at any point this year. He is 7/4 to start twelve or fewer games for the club, 5/4 to score six or less goals and 11/4 to be shown two or more red cards. Despite Balotelli’s antics, punters are piling in on Manchester City becoming the new power house of the Premiership and they are 8/13 to finish the season in either first or second place. Arsenal, on the other hand, continue to be friendless and they are 11/8 to finish between 5th and 10th.

“Nobody is disputing Balotelli’s talent but he comes with a fair amount of baggage and it would be no great surprise if City gave up on their man. That said, his antics are not putting off punters lumping on City to finish in the top two this season!” said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.

Balotelli league starts: 7/4 Twelve or less, 3/1 – 13-16, 7/2 – 17-20, 9/4 – 21+.
