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.

When Will Chelsea Win Again?


WITH CHELSEA going through what constitutes a slump for them, with no victory in their last three matches, William Hill, who now make them 15/8 to end the season without winning one of the ‘big four trophies’, have opened a book on when they will win again, and make them 2/9 to do so this weekend when they meet Everton at Stamford Bridge.

‘Should they to win what looks to be a ‘gimme’ then the critics will really begin to be heard’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills…When will Chelsea next win?
Everton (H) 2/9
Portsmouth(H) 7/2
West Ham (A) 25/1
None Of These 40/1


A MANCHESTER- BASED William Hill internet client whose £850 accumulator bet depended on his favourite team, Manchester United, beating Wolfsburg on Tuesday night, collected £104,880.67 after Michael Owen’s hat trick landed their victory at odds of 11/4, to add to three other Champions League winners – Bordeaux at 9/4; Real Madrid 5/4 and Porto 7/2. ‘This is the biggest payout we’ve made to a single client on the Champions League so far this season – and hopefully will remain so!’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
