7/2 For Blackburn’s Under Fire Trio To Leave Club

After the humiliating apology issued to Steve Kean and Morten Gamst Pedersen by Blackburn global advisor, Shebby Singh, William Hill are offering 7/2 that all three have left their positions by the end of the Championship season.

“It is no secret that Steve Kean is walking a tightrope after relegation last season but Shebby Singh has really turned the heat up on the manager now,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “His ill-advised comments about fans’ favourite, Morten Gamst Pedersen, however, have put Singh’s own position under threat.”

Blackburn are 10/1 joint fifth favourites to win the Championship behind favourites Bolton at 6/1 and Leicester at 7/1.

English Championship winner: 6/1 Bolton; 7/1 Leicester; 9/1 Leeds; 9/1 Wolves; 10/1 Blackburn; 10/1 Cardiff; 11/1 BAR

English Championship promotion: 7/4 Leicester; 2/1 Bolton; 5/2 Wolves; 3/1 Leeds; 4/1 Blackburn; 4/1 Cardiff; 4/1 Nottingham Forest; 5/1 BAR

What Now For Blackburn? Relegation More Likely Than Winning Championship

Blackburn suffered relegation at the hands of Wigan and William Hill make Rovers 10/1 to go down to League one next season. They are 16/1 to win the league and 4/1 to win promotion by any means. Relegation often means that a number of star players could be released to balance the books and Hills are odds on about Yakubu (5/6), Paul Robinson (1/2) and David Dunn (8/13) all having left the club by the start of next season.

“Martin Olsson and Junior Hoilett look as though they are already planning their exit strategies and they may just be the start of the exodus with many big names tipped to leave this summer,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Steve Kean is 1/5 to no longer be in charge of Blackburn on the first day of next season (10/3 that he is still there).

The relegation dogfight now goes down to the final day with Bolton needing a win at the Britannia Stadium and counting on Manchester City beating QPR. The Wanderers are 4/11 to go down, with QPR 2/1.

Blackburn next season:

Championship Outright – 16/1
Relegation: 10/1
Promotion – 4/1

Steve Kean at Rovers first day of next season: 1/5 no; 10/3 yes

Will players still be at Blackburn on the first day of next season:

YAK – YES 5/6 NO 5/6
ROBINSON – YES 6/4 NO 1/2
DUNN – YES 6/5 NO 8/13
DANN – YES 8/13 NO 6/5

Premier League Relegation:
4/11 Bolton; 2/1 QPR

Podolski Odds On To Become Gunner

PODOLSKI ODDS-ON TO BECOME A GUNNER

William Hill are offering odds of 4/7 that Cologne and Germany striker Lukas Podolski will have joined Arsenal by day one of the next Premier League season – and 5/4 that he does not. But if he does arrive there he may find that Robin Van Persie has departed – after the in-form striker was backed from Even money to 5/6 with Hills to have left the club by the start of the next campaign, and lengthened from 8/11 to Evens still to be there. Boss Arsene Wenger is 2/5 still to be in charge on day one, 7/4 not to.
Hills are also betting on how many goals RVP will chalk up in the Prem this season – and make him 11/4 to set a new record of 35 or more. He is 14/1 to end up with 25; 6/1 26/27; 3/1 28/29; 3/1 30/31; 11/4 32/33; 5/2 34.

**Kenny Dalglish played down rumours of Luis Suarez joining PSG, and Hills make the player 1/5 still to be at Anfield next season, but 10/3 to depart before then.

YOU BET NO MORE PREM BOSSES WILL GO THIS SEASON…

William Hill offer 13/8 that no more Premier League managers will leave their clubs before the end of the season, but Steve Kean is 9/2 to be the next to do so this campaign while Hills also offer 5/1 Coyle; Martinez; 6 McLeish; 16 Redknapp. Others on request.

NEXT PERMANENT CHELSEA BOSS….7/4 Jose Mourinho; 4/1 Rafa Benitez; 6/1 Pep Guardiola 8/1 RDM; 9/1 Joachim Low; Fabio Capello.

11/10 For Current Bottom Three To Drop…1/1 For No More Managers To Go This Season

Bolton and Blackburn were the two sides at the bottom who benefitted from today’s basement battles and Hills make those two North West sides 8/15 (Bolton) and 4/9 (Blackburn) to stay up. The current bottom three (Wigan, Wolves and QPR) are in increasing amounts of peril and Hills go just 11/10 that Wigan, QPR and Wolves all get relegated at the start of the season. Wigan and Wolves are 2/9 and 3/10 respectively to be relegated.

“Wolves and Wigan have not been playing particularly well over the last few weeks and QPR will certainly be looking at their upcoming fixtures with increasing trepidation,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “As things stand, it is easy to see why they are our big favourites for the drop.”

Chelsea squeaked past 10 man Stoke by the narrowest of margins, but at the same time maintained Roberto Di Matteo’s 100% record. Hills offer 4/1 that they reamain undefeated in the next four fixtures, including a tricky trip to Manchester City and a home tie against Napoli – their next game for which they are 7/2 to be defeated.

Hills are now offering Even money that no other Premier League manager leaves his job before the end of the season. Owen Coyle, Roberto Martinez and Alex McLeish are all 5/1 to be the next to go, while Steve Kean, who was as short as 2/9 at one point in the season is 8/1 to be the next to go.

Premier League Relegation: 2/9 Wigan; 3/10 Wolves; 1/3 QPR; 11/8 Bolton; 13/8 Blackburn; 25/1 Aston Villa; 33/1 Swansea

Premier League Stay Up: 1/300 Swansea; 1/200 Aston Villa; 4/9 Blackburn; 8/15 Bolton; 9/4 QPR; 12/5 Wolves; 3/1 Wigan

To finish bottom: 6/5 Wigan; 2/1 Wolves; 9/4 QPR; 8/1 Bolton; 10/1 Blackburn

When Will Chelsea First Lose Under RDM?
Napoli (H) (UCL) 7/2
Leicester (H) (FAC) 10/1
Man City (A) (PL) 5/4
Tottenham (H) (PL) 4/1
Remain unbeaten in above 4 fixtures 4/1

Must be played in above order or bets void.

City Return To Top Of Table With Mcleish And Mccarthy Both Backed To Go Before Next Season

Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League courtesy of a close victory against Aston Villa and William Hill make the Blues 4/6 favourites to win the league this season ahead of Manchester United at 6/5. Villa on the other hand, left the field to a chorus of boos and Hills make Alex McLeish Evens to have left Villa by the start of next season (8/11 to still be there). McLeish is now 8/1 to be the next manager to leave his job.

A 5-1 defeat at home to their arch rivals, will have done nothing to placate the Wolves fans already calling for Mick McCarthy’s head and William Hill are offering 4/9 that he is no longer at the club come the first game of next season (13/8 that he is still there). Mick McCarthy is 7/4 favourite to be the next manager to leave his job.

“The writing appears to be on the wall for Mick,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “The Wolves fans were already unhappy with the way things were going and a heavy home defeat will not have done anything to change that.”

Premier League Outright: 4/6 Manchester City; 6/5 Manchester United; 20/1 Tottenham; 200/1 BAR

Top Four finish: 1/250 Manchester City; 1/200 Manchester United; 1/14 Spurs; 5/6 Chelsea; 11/8 Arsenal; 3/1 Liverpool; 12/1 Newcastle; 100/1 BAR

Relegation: 3/10 Wigan; 4/7 Wolves; 4/6 Blackburn; 4/6 Bolton; 6/4 QPR; 12/1 West Brom; 16/1 BAR

Will Mick McCarthy still be at Wolves at the start of next season: 4/9 no, 13/8 yes

Will Alex McLeish still be in charge of Aston Villa on the first day of next season: 8/11 yes; 1/1 no

3rd Premier League manager to leave his job: 7/4 Mick McCarthy; 2/1 Harry Redknapp; 9/2 Andre Villas Boas; 6/1 Owen Coyle; 6/1 Steve Kean; 8/1 Alex McLeish; 8/1 No manager to leave; 16/1 BAR

Coyle Cut For Chop After Dire Home Defeat!

Following defeat in the vital relegation six pointer against Wigan, Bolton Wanderers are 8/11 to be relegated this season. Wigan remain hot favourites to go down at 1/4 with Blackburn 4/7 despite their victory over QPR, who are 5/4 to go down.

“It is becoming incredibly condensed at the bottom of the table and a little run could certainly see one of the sides move up the table and it could take a manager getting the sack to do this,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Of the bottom five clubs in the Premier League, only one of them have changed their manager and we could well see at least one of them go soon.”

Owen Coyle has also been cut from 10/1 to 6/1 to be the next manager to leave his job – a market that is headed by potential next England manager, Harry Redknapp at 5/4. Chelsea lost away to Everton and Andre Villas-Boas is 5/1 to be the next manager to go.

William Hill Odds:

Relegation: 1/4 Wigan; 4/7 Blackburn; 8/11 Bolton; 10/11 Wolves; 5/4 QPR; 9/1 West Brom; 12/1 BAR

Next Premier League Manager to go: 5/1 Harry Redknapp; 5/1 Andre Villas-Boas; 11/2 Mick McCarthy; 11/2 Steve Kean; 6/1Owen Coyle; 8/1 Alex McLeish; 8/1 No manager to go; 14/1 BAR

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.

6/4 For King Kenny To Abdicate Before The Start Of Next Season!

Andy Carroll suffered another tough day at the office and William Hill are offering 7/4 that he fails to score in the next four games, although he is 6/4 to score against Manchester City in the Carling Cup. Having seemed like an almost certainty to be part of the England squad for Euro 2012, Hills are now offering 5/6 that Carroll fails to make the cut. Kenny Dalglish is also suffering at the moment as Liverpool are suffering a tough time of it and Hills make him 6/4 to no longer be boss on the first day of next season.

“There is no doubt that Liverpool are struggling at the moment and Dalglish is 25/1 to be the next Premier League manager to go and he is just 6/4 to have left the position by the start of next season,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Bolton Wanderers surprised Liverpool but remain embroiled in a relegation battle and William Hill make the8/11 to go down, with Wigan the 2/9 favourites and Blackburn 4/5. Hills also offer 11/4 that all three of the troubled North-West sides (Bolton, Blackburn and Wigan) are relegated together.

William Hill odds:

Kenny Dalglish to be Liverpool boss on 1st day of next season: 1/2 yes; 6/4 no

Andy Carroll to make England’s Euro 2012 squad: 5/6 yes; 5/6 no

When will Andy Carroll score next: 6/4 Manchester City; 5/2 Manchester United; 4/1 Wolves; 6/1 Tottenham; 7/4 None of these matches

Premier League relegation: 2/9 Wigan; 8/11 Bolton; 4/5 Blackburn; 10/11 Wolves; 7/4 QPR; 13/2 Swansea; 10/1 BAR

Premier League outright: 1/2 Manchester City; 5/2 Manchester United; 10/1 Tottenham; 33/1 Chelsea; 80/1 BAR
