Reliable From The Spot? Not Gerrard And Milner

With penalties a hot topic going into the knockout stages of Euro 2012 William Hill are betting on who will be the first England player to miss one in a dreaded shootout. Steven Gerrard and James Milner are both 9/2.

Manchester United penalty taker Wayne Rooney is 5/1 with John Terry, who missed a penalty in the Champions League final in 2008 at 6/1. Ashley Cole scored a magnificent penalty in Chelsea’s shootout win against Bayern Munich and is a 7/1 chance to miss first, as is Liverpool forward Andy Carroll.

Joe Hart has taken a few penalties in his time and has said he would step up in the first five if called upon. The confident stopper is 20/1 to be the first player to miss. He scored penalties for the Under 21’s against Sweden in 2009 and in a friendly for Manchester City against LA Galaxy last year.

“The captain and Milner are favourites to miss first but they have been good takers at club level in the past, Milner more so at Villa but we believe that the pressure of taking a must score penalty could get to one or two of these lions as nerves have definitely hit in years gone by,” said Hill’s spokesman Mark Young.

First England player to miss a penalty in a penalty shootout:

9/2 Steven Gerrard, 9/2 James Milner, 5/1 Wayne Rooney, 6/1 John Terry, 6/1 Any Other, 7/1 Ashley Cole, 7/1 Andy Carroll, 8/1 Ashley Young, 9/1 Scott Parker, 10/ Danny Welbeck, 12/1 Theo Walcott, 14/1 Joleon Lescott, 20/1 Joe Hart

*Bets are void if a penalty shootout does not take place with England involved in the rest of the tournament.

Birmingham Connection Vying For Number 1 Spot…danish Manager 9/1 For Title To Save His Bacon

Roy Hodgson has called Birmingham’s goalkeeping coach, Dave Watson, onto his coaching staff, sparking rumours that three former or current Birmingham keepers could be called up to the Euros squad. Former keeper Joe Hart is 1/500 to be in the squad, with another ex-Birmingham keeper, Ben Foster, offered at 1/2 to go the Euros. Current England U21 goalkeeper, Jack Butland, currently working under Watson at Birmingham, is 4/1 to make it onto the plane to Poland and the Ukraine.

“Dave Watson has overseen the developments of a number of good goalkeepers and it can only be a good thing that a number of the contenders for the goalkeeper’s jersey have previous experience of him,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Wolves have announced Stale Stolbakken as their new manager and William Hill make him 9/1 to win the League in his first season and 11/4 to get Wolves back into the Premier League via any means necessary. Wolves are 12/1 to be relegated next season.

Amidst reports that Roy Hodgson has already spoken to Steven Gerrard, William Hill have slashed his price of being England captain against France at the Euros from 13/8 to 8/11. Former favourite, Scott Parker has gone from 6/5 to 2/1, while goalkeeper Joe Hart is the 13/2 third favourite.

England Captain vs France at Euro 2012: 8/11 Gerrard; 2/1 Parker; 13/2 Hart; 20/1 Ferdinand; 20/1 Lampard; 25/1 Barry; 50/1 A. Cole. Others on request…

Hodgson Fancied For England: Will Gerrard Miss Out On Captaincy?

Roy Hodgson is the 1/8 favourite to get the England job with William Hill after news emerged that the West Brom manager had been approached by the FA. Having been as short as 1/4 on Saturday, Harry Redknapp is out to 9/2 with current interim manager Stuart Pearce 25/1.

“The FA have announced that Hodgson is the first man that they want to speak to, but whether this is an indication that he is first choice is uncertain,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “All those that think Harry is still the man for the job, now have the opportunity to back him at odds against.”

After his missed penalty against Blackburn signalled the end for Hodgson, Hills have pushed out the price of Steven Gerrard wearing the captain’s armband for England’s first Euros game from 5/4 to 11/8, while Scott Parker is in from 5/4 to 6/5. Joe Hart is the 7/1 third favourite.

Carlos Tevez has announced that he would love to stay at Manchester City for the foreseeable future and Hills have cut his odds of staying until at least next season from 6/4 to 1/20.

England Captain for Euro 2012 Game vs France: 6/5 Scott Parker; 11/8 Steven Gerrard; 7/1 Joe Hart; 12/1 Frank Lampard; 33/1 Rio Ferdinand; 33/1 Ashley Cole; 33/1 Gareth Barry
*If captain for this game is John Terry then all bets void

Next permanent England manager: 1/8 Roy Hodgson; 9/2 Harry Redknapp; 25/1 Stuart Pearce; 25/1 Martin O’Neill; 33/1 Alan {ardew; 33/1 Guus Hiddink; 33/1 Rafa Benitez; 40/1 Pep Guardiola; 50/1 BAR

Chelsea’s Captain Fantastic (not Terry) 14/1 For England Armband

FRANK LAMPARD captained 10 man Chelsea to the Champions League Final against Barcelona and William Hill make him 14/1 to wear the armband for England’s first game of the European Championships. However, Steven Gerrard and Scott Parker are the 5/4 joint favourites for the captaincy.

Harry Redknapp is the 1/4 red hot favourite to be named as the next permanent England manager but it is less clear when the FA will announce the appointment of their chosen man. William Hill make it 1/3 that the new manager will take his first press conference between the end of the Premier League and England’s first game at the Euros.

“Redknapp is the red hot favourite for the England job as far as our punters are concerned but no one quite knows when the appointment will be made,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

CHELSEA fantastically drew with Barcelona with ten men and William Hill make the Blues 7/4 to lift the trophy. With John Terry getting sent off and going 2-0 down, the Blues were as long as 20/1 to qualify from the tie. The mastermind behind the victory, Roberto Di Matteo, is in to 4/5 from 7/4 to become the next permanent Chelsea boss. Chelsea will be up against it in the Final having four players ruled out by suspension but Hills make Michael Essien 1/2, Bosingwa 1/5 and Torres 2/1 to start in Munich.

BARCELONA have now failed to win three games in a row, almost unheard of and Hills make Guardiola 5/6 to have left his position by the time the 2012/13 season kicks off.

ASTON VILLA lost on Tuesday to Bolton and William Hill make Alex McLeish 9/2 to have left Villa Park by the start of next season.

Who will captain England for the first game of the European Championships: 5/4 Steven Gerrard; 5/4 Scott Parker; 8/1 Joe Hart; 14/1 Frank Lampard; 33/1 Rio Ferdinand; 33/1 Gareth Barry
*If captain for this game is John Terry then all bets are void

When will Fabio Capello’s permanent replacement have their first official press conference as England manager: 10/3 before the end of the Premier League season; 1/3 between the end of the Premier League season and England’s first game; 20/1 during Euro 2012; 9/2 after Euro 2012

Chelsea players to be there next season:

Lampard: 4/7 yes; 5/4 no
Drogba: 11/10 yes; 4/6 no
Terry: 1/5 yes; 10/3 no
A Cole: 1/7 yes; 4/1 no
Torres: 8/15 yes; 11/8 no

Will Guardiola be at Barca at the start of next season: 5/6 yes; 5/6 no

Late Goal Could Be Robben Pearce Of Shot A Euro Glory

England were unlucky to suffer defeat in Stuart Pearce’s first game in charge of England and William Hill make him 5/1 (out from 2/1) to be in charge of the team for the European Championships. Harry Redknapp is the 1/6 favourite(in from 1/2), while any other manager can be backed at 8/1. Harry Redknapp is the 1/7 favourite to become the next England manager with Stuart Pearce out from 6/1 to 8/1, Pep Guardiola 9/1 and Roy Hodgson 14/1.

“That late goal could ultimately cost Pearce a shot at the Euros, drifting from 2/1 to 5/1 to lead the squad out in Poland and the Ukraine,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Harry looks like the man now.”

Scott Parker performed well in his first game as England captain and William Hill make him 4/6 to wear the armband against France at the Euros, with Steven Gerrard 7/4, Joe Hart 4/1, Frank Lampard 12/1 and Gareth Barry 14/1.

Gary Cahill and Ashley Young both grabbed a goal each against World Cup finalists, Holland, and Hills make Cahill 10/1 to score at the Euros and Young 11/4 to do so.

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 to be next permanent Arsenal manager: 14/1

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

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

Pearce’s “old” Boys Could Feature In Future If He Gets Permanent Role

Stuart Pearce allowed Stewart Downing to take the Press Conference for England today and William Hill make the Liverpool winger 33/1 to be England’s captain for their first Euro 2012 game (the same price as Rio Ferdinand). James Milner holds the record for most under 21 appearances, many of which were under Pearce and he is 14/1 to be given the captain’s armband for the France game. Steven Gerrard is the 10/11 favourite although there is a suggestion that should Pearce be in charge at the Euros, he will turn to a number of his U21 stalwarts. Micah Richards is 5/2 to start England’s first game of the tournament, with Kyle Walker 7/4, Danny Welbeck 4/6 and Daniel Sturridge 8/11.

“Pearce knows a lot of these players from his U21 days and he certainly would not have called them up if he thought they would not be up to task,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Frazier Campbell has impressed since returning to action following a year on the touchline and he could mark his miraculous return to form with an England cap. William Hill make him 1/4 to make any form of appearance on Wednesday (11/4 to remain unused).

The match against Holland will be a good test for England against a side who must be confident of reaching the latter stages of the Euros and Hills are offering 12/1 that they meet in the tournament and England qualify.

England Captain for Euro 2012 game vs France: 10/11 Steven Gerrard; 7/4 Scott Parker; 11/2 Joe Hart; 10/1 Frank Lampard; 14/1 Gareth Barry; 14/1 James Milner; 20/1 Ashley Cole; 33/1 Rio Ferdinand; 33/1 Stewart Downing

England vs Holland goal scorer match bet: 10/3 Daniel Sturridge; 10/3 Danny Welbeck; 4/7 tie
*both must start or bets void

Frazier Campbell to make his debut: 1/4 yes; 11/4 no

Glen Johnson: 8/11 yes; 1/1 no
Danny Welbeck: 4/6 yes; 11/10 no
Daniel Sturridge: 8/11 yes; 1/1 no

FA Trophy: Luton Favs As They Draw Bogey Team

Despite drawing bogey side, York, Luton are the 6/4 favourites to win the FA Trophy, with William Hill making York and Newport 9/4 shots with Wealdstone 8/1 outsiders. Hills think that the final will be contested by Luton and Newport County, offering odds of 5/4 that these two line up at Wembley on the 20th May.
