Could Moses Lead Chelsea To The Promised Land Again?

With Chelsea having had their first approach for Victor Moses rebuffed William Hill question where he will be at the beginning of next season. So often used to getting their way, Chelsea are 4/7 to land the young striker and 11/8 he will still be at Wigan.

“Abramovich can quite often get like a dog with a bone, as his dogged pursuit of Jose Mourinho has shown in the past and we think that the same determination will prove too much for Wigan this summer,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Chelsea have already signed Eden Hazard and Marko Marin this summer and seem to be on the hunt to strengthen their Champions League winning squad. William Hill believe that 3-4 new signings (4/6) will start on the first day of next season for the Blues. 0-2 is 7/4 and 5+ is 5/1.

Andre Villas Boas is the 2/7 favourite with William Hill to take over at Tottenham despite the clubs links with France boss Laurent Blanc, who is 3/1 for the job. Luka Modric is 8/11 to still be at White Hart Lane for the start of next season. Gareth Bale is 4/9 and Rafael Van der Vaart is 8/15.

“Overlooking his Chelsea experience, AVB has a great managerial record and it would seem that some of the top players will stay to be part of the revolution,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Victor Moses’ Club on the first day of next Season: Chelsea 4/7, Wigan 11/8, QPR 10/1, Arsenal 12/1, Liverpool 16/1, Spurs 16/1, Man City 20/1, Man Utd 20/1

How many new players signed by Chelsea will start first game of next season?

7/4 0-2
4/6 3-4
5/1 5+

Next Permanent Tottenham Manager: 2/7 Villas Boas, 3/1 Blanc, 10/1 Klinsmann, 12/1 Moyes, 12/1 Rangnick, 14/1 Sherwood, 16/1 Martinez, 20/1 Benitez, 25/1 BAR

Still at Tottenham on the first day of next season:

8/11 Modric (1/1 Not)
4/9 Bale (13/8 Not)
8/15 Van der Vaart (11/8 Not)

West Ham won the ‘Richest Game In English Football’ and earned themselves a place at the top table once again and William Hill now make The Hammers 8/11 to survive in the Premier League next season (Evens to go down). There always has to be one unlucky side in the Playoffs and Blackpool were that side on Saturday. Their fans should take heart however, as they are 5/1 to go up next season and 16/1 to win the league.

Easter Sunday, Title Race Decider? United Evens To Win League By Seven Or More

Easter Sunday could be decisive in the race for the Premier League and William Hill go 5/6 that the destination of the title is decided before the Manchester derby at the end of April (5/6 it is not). Hills are offering Even money that Manchester United win the title by seven or more points although they are 5/1 to fail to win the title. Manchester United are 1/9 to win the League, City are 5/1.

Mark Hughes came to QPR with the backing of mega rich owners with the proviso that he keeps them in the Premier League. Things have not worked out as planned so far, but despite this, Hills make him 1/4 to still be at Loftus Road on the first day of next season (11/4 to have left).

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.

United Now 1/6 For Title, Wolves As Good As Down – 5/1 For No More Wins

Manchester City failed to win again although a rousing comeback prevented them from losing, but all the impetus has been handed to Manchester United in the race for the Premier League title. William Hill are now offering 4/1 that City win the title (United are 1/6). It is 3/1 for the title race to be decided by the time the Manchester derby comes around on the 30th April. Roberto Mancini is Even money to no longer to be in charge by the start of next season (8/11 to still be there).

Wolves have been cut adrift at the bottom of the table and William Hill make them 1/20 to be relegated. Terry Connor has failed to win as boss of Wolves and William Hill make him 1/8 to no longer be in charge on the first day of next season (9/2 to still be there as boss). In what would be an embarrassing climb down, Hills offer 12/1 that Mick McCarthy returns to Molineux as manager this season. Wolves are 5/1 to fail to win for the rest of the season.

“In a vital day at both ends of the table, Wolves appear to have condemned themselves to Championship football while Manchester United will now claim to have one hand on the Premier League trophy,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill Odds:

Premier League relegation: 1/20 Wolves (8/1 to stay up); 2/5 Wigan (7/4); 2/5 QPR (7/4); 7/4 Blackburn; 11/4 Bolton; 12/1 Aston Villa

26 Hours Without A Goal: How Long Before Torres Bags Again?

5/1 TITLE IS DECIDED BY GOAL DIFFERENCE

Fernando Torres finally scored after 26 hours for Chelsea at the weekend and William Hill are offering odds on how long it will be until he nets again. He is Even money to fail to score within two hours of play, although he is 7/2 to score within the next hour. Torres could well go on a scoring run now and Hills make him 8/11 to outscore Andy Carroll between now and the end of the season and he is 2/9 to outscore Carlos Tevez in the same time frame.

Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed that his side’s 5-0 win against Wolves was vital due to the fact that he thinks that the title may be decided by goal difference. William Hill are offering 5/1 that he is correct and that the title is settled one way or the other by goal difference.

“This title run-in could be one of the closest ever and odds of 5/1 suggest that goal difference may be the deciding factor,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Despite Sunderland’s recent good form, William Hill think they have left their charge up the table too late and make Newcastle 1/10 to win bragging rights in the North East by finishing higher than their rivals (Sunderland are 11/2 to do so). They are 8/15 to finish in the top half of the table, something that would have seemed preposterous when Martin O’Neill took over the club (they are 11/8 to finish in the bottom half of the league). Blackburn have shown recent signs of improvement and they are out to 2/1 to be relegated (4/11 to stay up).

Mick McCarthy to be reinstated as Wolves manager this season 8/1. ‘Although they only had ten players for much of the game Wolves capitulated against United and TC’s record suggests he is a man who would rather be doing the job he used to do alongside Mick McCarthy. We think it is unlikely but not impossible that Mick could come back to inspire a bid to avoid relegation,’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. Wolves are currently 1/6 to relegated with Hills, 7/2 to stay up, but 6/5 favourites to finish bottom.

How long until Torres’ next goal: 7/2 0-60 minutes; 5/2 61-120 minutes; 5/1 121-180 minutes; 1/1 180 minutes or more

Who will score more EPL goals between now until the end of the season:
2/9 Torres; 3/1 Tevez
8/11 Torres; 1/1 Carroll

Who will finish higher in the league: 1/10 Newcastle; 11/2 Sunderland

Sunderland finishing position: 8/15 top half; 11/8 bottom half

5/1 Premier League title to be won on goal difference

Premier League relegation: 1/6 Wolves; 1/4 Wigan; 2/5 QPR; 5/4 Bolton; 2/1 Blackburn; 33/1 BAR

Premier League to stay up: 4/11 Blackburn; 4/7 Bolton; 7/4 QPR; 11/4 Wigan; 7/2 Wolves

To finish bottom: 6/5 Wolves; 15/8 Wigan; 5/2 QPR; 9/1 Bolton; 14/1 Blackburn

Villas Boas Burden Eased Along With Odds For The Sack

Andre Villas Boas and Chelsea got a vital and comprehensive victory against Bolton at home and William Hill have eased the price of AVB having left Chelsea by the start of next season from 4/6 to Evens (8/11 to still be there). He is out to 4/1 from 3/1 to be out of a job by the time Chelsea visit Birmingham for their FA Cup replay.

“Chelsea played fantastically in the second half of their match and they have helped to ease the pressure on their under fire manager,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “If they can continue to play like they did after the first goal then their manager will have every reason to think his job will be safe.”

Despite coming from behind to salvage a point at Newcastle, Hills make Terry Connor 8/11 to NOT be in charge of Wolves for the first game of next season (Even money to still be in charge).

Andre Villas Boas to still be at Chelsea on first day of next season: 8/11 yes, EVS no

Andre Villas Boas to have left Chelsea by the start of Birmingham game: 4/1

Terry Connor to be in charge of Wolves on first day of next season: 1/1 yes; 8/11 no

Tevez 7/4 To Return Against Blackburn…avb On His Way?

Carlos Tevez has reportedly apologised paving the way for his Manchester City return. William Hill think that his return could well come against Blackburn this weekend, offering 7/4 that he plays some part during the game, while the home match against Bolton the following week is 11/8 to be the match in which he makes his return. He is 7/2 to return against Swansea, 7/1 Chelsea, 11/1 Stoke and 15/2 for him to play no part in any of these games.

Hills have opened a market on where Tevez will next ply his trade should he leave Manchester City in the summer and make PSG and Inter Milan the 4/1 favourites to secure his services with AC Milan 5/1. Tevez is Even money to still be at City come the start of next season (8/11 to have left).

“Having Carlos Tevez rot in the reserves helps nobody out and so by apologising, he has now opened the door for a return to the first team and we think he may be pulling on a City shirt sooner rather than later,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

After defeat to Napoli, Chelsea have now failed to win in five games and William Hill make under-pressure manager, Andre Villas Boas 3/1 to have left Chelsea by the time the second leg Champions League match comes around. He is also 2/5 to have left Chelsea by the start of next season (7/4 to still be there). He is now the 8/13 favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job.

When will Carlos Tevez next play for Manchester City: 7/4 Blackburn (h); 11/8 Bolton (h); 7/2 Swansea (a); 7/1 Chelsea (h); 11/1 Stoke (a); 15/2 none of these games

Carlos Tevez club at start of 2012/13 Premier League season: 4/1 PSG; 4/1 Inter Milan; 5/1 AC Milan; 7/1 Juventus; 8/1 Real Madrid; 10/1 Corinthians; 12/1 Anzhi Makhachkala; 14/1 Chelsea; 14/1 Liverpool; 16/1 Tottenham; 33/1 Barcelona; 50/1 Manchester United
*bets void if still at Manchester City

Carlos Tevez still at Manchester City come the start of 2012/13 season: 8/11 no; 1/1 yes

AVB to be in his current position on the first day of the 2012/13 Premiership season: Yes 7/4 No 2/5

AVB to no longer be in his current position by kick off of second leg v Napoli: 3/1
