O’neill To Be Bruce’s Replacement? Carling Cup Specials…

Steve Bruce’s days appear numbered at Sunderland and the William Hill sack race betting remains suspended for the foreseeable future. Hills are betting on who will be next through the doors at the Stadium of Light. Martin O’Neill is the 5/4 favourite while former Liverpool boss, Rafa Benitez, is 6/1. Former Sunderland player and current Huddersfield boss, Lee Clark is third favourite at 9/1.

“Martin O’Neill is linked to almost every high profile job in English football but appears to have been biding his time until the right offer comes along,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “The odds would suggest that were Sunderland to come calling, he might make his much anticipated return to Premier League management.”

William Hill make the game between Manchester United and Crystal Palace the 11/8 favourite to be the highest scoring Carling Cup Quarter Final game with the tie between Arsenal and Manchester City the 9/4 second favourite. United are 13/8 favourites to be the top scorers during the week and 11/4 to score the fastest goal.

Next Sunderland Manager: 5/4 Martin O’Neill; 6/1 Rafa Benitez; 9/1 Lee Clark; 10/1 Mark Hughes; 14/1 Bob Bradley; 16/1 Dave Jones; 16/1 Steve McLaren; 16/1 Carlo Ancelotti; 16/1 Ole Gunnar Solksjaer; 16/1 Stuart Pearce; 20/1 Alan Curbishley; 20/1 Sean O’Driscoll; 20/1 Gareth Southgate; 25/1 David Moyes; 25/1 Glenn Hoddle; 25/1 Sven Goran-Eriksson; 33/1 Gianfranco Zola; 33/1 Peter Reid; 33/1 Roy Keane…others on request

Championship Sack Race Hots Up: Sven Odds On To Go Before Mclaren

With the Championship season set to kick off this weekend, Hills are offering a brand new market on the Manager Sack Race. The Championship is home to a number of high profile managers this year and the market is expected to be incredibly competitive with Coventry manager, Andy Thorn, the 6/1 favourite to be the first manager to leave his club. Keith Millen and Sean Dyche round off the top three at 7/1. With two former England managers plying their trade in the division, Hills offer 14/1 that Steve McLaren is the first manager to go, while Sven Goran Eriksson is 16/1 although Sven is 8/11 to be out of a job before the Wally with the Brolly.

“This year’s Championship is expected to be one of the closest ever with a number of high profile managers in charge of high profile clubs. Not all of them will be able to live up to expectations and the managers’ sack race could potentially be quite a volatile market,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

First Championship manager to leave his job: 6/1 Andy Thorn; 7/1 Keith Millen; 7/1 Sean Dyche; 8/1 Nigel Clough; 9/1 Chris Hughton; 9/1 Ian Holloway; 10/1 Sean O’Driscoll; 10/1 Steve Cotterill; 12/1 Tony Mowbray; 14/1 Steve McLaren; 16/1 Darren Ferguson; 16/1 Sven Goran Eriksson; 16/1 Simon Grayson; 16/1 Dougie Freedman; 16/1 Eddie Howe; 16/1 Paul Jewell; 20/1 Nigel Pearson; 20/1 Brian McDermott; 20/1 Keith Hill; 20/1 Nigel Adkins; 20/1 Sam Allardyce; 20/1 Gus Poyet; 20/1 Kenny Jackett; 20/1 Malky Mackay

Who Will Be Championship New Boy Boss Champ ?

************William Hill CHAMPIONSHIP MANAGER SPECIALS******************************************

WHO WLL BE CHAMPIONSHIP NEW-BOY CHAMP?

With several Championship clubs welcoming new managers, William Hill have opened a book on which of them will come out on top at the end of the season and how many of them may fail to see the season out as manager – offering 11/8 that at least one of them will have left the job by then. ‘The difficulty of impressing as an in-coming boss is emphasized by quoting odds-against for all of the new managers to see the season out at their new clubs’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.:

Hills…Highest finishing New Championship Manager:

West Ham (Sam Allardyce) 11/8
Birmingham (Chris Hughton) 9/4
N Forest (Steve McLaren) 5/2
Cardiff (Malky Mackay) 7/1
Watford (Sean Dyche) 25/1
Barnsley (Keith Hill) 40/1

**Only these 6 count.

Hills…..How many of Allardyce, Hughton, McLaren, Mackay, Dyche, Hill will still be manager of their clubs on the final day of 2011/12 season:

0 or 1 33/1
2 or 3 9/1
4 7/2
5 5/4

Mark My Words – Sparky Gamble May Be Extnguished

MARK MY WORDS – HE MAY NOT GET THE JOB!

BETTING SUPPORT for Mark Hughes to become Aston Villa boss has dramatically dried up – and William Hill have lengthened his odds from 1/3 to 4/5 favourite. ‘Having been backed as though the job was about to be handed to him, support for Mark Hughes to become Villa boss tailed off dramatically during the afternoon’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
However, 7/2 second favourite Steve McLaren and 5/1 third favourite Carlo Ancelotti have both attracted support.
Hills also make Rafa Benitez 6/1, Roberto Martinez 7/1 and Martin Jol 10/1. ‘This particular market may have longer to run than many sspected’ added Sharpe.

Hugh Bet Chris In Running For Hammers

HUGH BET HAMMERS WILL CHOOSE CHRIS!

William Hill make Chris Hughton 6/4 favourite to be appointed the next permanent West Ham manager but say no one contender is currently dominating the betting. ‘Since the opening flurry of support for Steve McLaren, which ended when he became an odds-on shot only to apparently rule himself out of the running, the market has not seen anyone really dominate – but it will happen, and sooner rather than later if the club do as they are suggesting, and appoint someone probably British, before the end of the month’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. ‘We’ve seen solid support for Hughton while Messrs Alladryce, Warnock and McKay are attracting punters. One suspects that play-off results may also well have an influence in the ultimate outcome’.

William Hill – NEXT PERMANENT WEST HAM MANAGER- 6/4 Hughton; 6/1 Allardyce; Warnock; 7/1 O’Neill; 8/1 Curbishley; Di Canio; Di Matteo; Keen; McKay; 10/1 Bilic; Jones; McLaren; Poyet 14 Davies; Jol; 16 Lambert; Rodgers. Others on request.

William Hill have opened a book on where former England manager Steve McClaren will manage next now that he has lost his German job – and they make the Championship their 7/2 favourite, with a return to Holland where he did very well, 4/1 joint second favourite with the Premier League. ‘All of a sudden poor old Steve McLaren is almost back to where he was when he ceased to be England boss, having rehabilitiated himself once in Holland he may now have to make it a case of ‘double Dutch’ to restore his managerial reputation’ said Hill’s spokesman Gaham Sharpe.

Hills offer 4/11 that NO Prem club will go into administration during 2010/11 season.

TO WIN TITLE……4/7 Chelsea; 11/8 Man Utd….Chelsea 8/11 to win Prem-FA Cup double; 10/1 to win nothing.
