8/1 Chelsea Hold Firm At The Bridge… Are Newcastle The Most Entertaining Premier League Side Ever?

CHELSEA are up against it in their Champions League semi final with William Hill making the home side 4/1 to win the match and Barcelona odds on at 8/11 to return to the Nou Camp with the advantage. Chelsea‘s back line will have to stand firm against the predicted barrage and Hills are offering 8/1 that Roberto Di Matteo’s men win to nil.

“Punters are backing Barcelona as if they cannot lose but Chelsea have been waiting a few years for revenge and it could come on Wednesday night,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

If any Barcelona player has to be stopped, it is Lionel Messi and William Hill are offering odds on who will be the first to foul him, making Michael Essien and Raul Meireles the 6/1 joint favourites with John Terry and John Obi Mikel both 7/1. Messi is 12/5 to outscore the entire Chelsea team on Wednesday night.

To celebrate 20 years of the Premier League, the FA are doing a ’20 Seasons Of Premier League Awards’ and amongst the categories are best goal, best match and best celebration. Bookmakers, William Hill make Dennis Bergkamp (vs Newcastle 2001/02) and Paolo Di Canio (vs Wimbledon 1999/2000) the joint 9/2 favourites to win the award while Matt Le Tissier (vs Blackburn 1994/95) and Thierry Henry (vs Manchester Utd 2000/01) are 11/2 joint third favourites.

It is not just the strikers getting recognised at the awards however, as the men between the sticks are also represented by the ‘Best Save of the 20 Seasons’ Awards. Possibly the greatest ever Premier League goalkeeper, Peter Schmeichel, shares 4/1 favouritism for the award with his effort against Newcastle in the 1997/98 season, with Joe Hart (vs Liverpool 2007/08) the same price. Craig Gordon (vs Bolton Wanderers 2010/11) is the 5/1 third favourite.

Newcastle are involved in the three favourites for the ‘Match of the 20 Years’ award with their 3-4 defeat to Liverpool in 1995/96 offered at 8/15 (having originally opened at 4/1). Their thrilling 4-4 comeback against Arsenal in 2010/11 is offered at 8/1 and their 5-0 victory over Manchester United in 1996/97 9/1.

“There have been some fantastic performances throughout the 20 years of the Premier League, although perhaps none as entertaining as the Liverpool win that effectively ended Newcastle’s title aspirations in 1995/96 and that match is clear favourite to win,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

20 Years Of The Premier League Awards:

Robbie Is As Keane As Mustard To Prove He Still Has It!

PLUS William Hill WEEKEND SPECIALS

Robbie Keane has become the third player since the start of the transfer window, to sign (on loan) for a Premier League club from the MLS and William Hill think that he will be the most successful in terms of goals, offering 11/8 that he scores more than Landon Donovan and Thierry Henry during his time back in England. He is also 11/10 with Hills to score a Premier League goal before the other two.

Keane is 6/1 to score the first goal against Everton and 40/1 to score a hat-trick, while 11/1 is offered for both Keane and Donovan to bag a goal during Saturday’s game.

“Robbie Keane is a born goal scorer and some may think his move to the USA may have been somewhat premature,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “We reckon that his will prove those people right while back on these shores.”

Keane has returned to these shores to keep his fitness up in the build up to Euro 2012 and he is 80/1 to be the top scorer at this tournament. Hills do however, offer 4/7 that he fails to score at the Euros.

Robbie Keane to score: 1st v Everton 6/1, to score 7/4, to score 2 or more 8/1, to score a hat-trick 40/1

Robbie Keane to score a premier league hat-trick for Aston Villa: 10/1

Robbie Keane to be sent off in a premier league match for Aston Villa: 14/1

Both Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan to score in this weekend’s Aston Villa v Everton match: 11/1

Will Ba Go Bye Bye As Newcastle Could Be Carroll Singing?

Rumours abound that Andy Carroll could be on his way back to Newcastle as his Liverpool career has struggled to take off. William Hill think he will remain on Merseyside, however, offering 1/10 that he does not return to the Magpies (11/2 that he does). In just under one year at Liverpool, Andy Carroll has managed just four Premier League goals and Hills make him 8/13 to score more than that for Newcastle (should he sign) by the end of the season.

“To say that Andy Carroll has struggled at Liverpool, would be a bit of an understatement but, despite this, the extended absence of Luis Suarez means that the Reds may not cut their losses just yet,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Andy Carroll’s arrival on Tyneside could depend on whether Demba Ba’s release clause is activated, with a number of top teams reportedly interested in signing the Senegalese striker. He is 2/1 to leave St. James’ Park in January with PSG the 13/8 favourites to be his next club. Spurs are 11/4 second favourites to be Ba’s next club with Chelsea 3/1.

Thierry Henry marked his return to Arsenal by scoring and did so sporting a full beard. Hill’s think that Henry will now keep his beard for the full duration that he stays at Arsenal offering 1/2 that he does not appear clean shaven (as smooth as a baby’s bum during a match).

“We believe that Thierry Henry is very superstitious and think he will keep the beard until he departs at the end of February,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Andy Carroll to return to Newcastle in January: 11/2 Yes; 1/10 no (loan deals included)

If Andy Carroll moves back to Newcastle, will he score more than four: 8/13 yes; 6/5 no

Demba Ba Leave Newcastle in January: 2/1 yes; 4/11 no

Damba Ba next club: 13/8 PSG; 11/4 Tottenham; 3/1 Chelsea; 8/1 Arsenal; 8/1 Liverpool; 10/1 Man Utd; 14/1 Man City

Will Thierry Henry appear clean shaven for a match during his time at Arsenal: 1/2 no; 6/4 yes

WILL IT BE HENRY WHO LEEDS FROM THE FRONT?

WITH Thierry Henry likely to return to the Arsenal team for their FA Cup match against Leeds on Monday, William Hill offer 1/ 2 that he will extend his amazing run of scoring against Leeds in the last five games he has played against them, if he starts – and 3/1 that he is on target coming on as sub, should he start on the bench. ‘Henry has a prolific scoring record against Leeds and it would appear to be written in the stars that he should score on his return to the club’ said ill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

William Hill believe Thierry Henry has the same chance of scoring NO goals during his two month spell at Arsenal as he has of scoring three or more in his time there, quoting 2/1 about each eventuality – but they make him an 8/1 chance to strike a blow for the Gunners against their deadly rivals Sputrs, by netting against them. ‘Many punters will be convinced there is an inevitability about Henry returning to haunt Spurs’ added Sharpe.

HENRY TO SCORE V LEEDS – 1/ 2 (if starting); 3/1 if coming on as substitute. 9/4 to score 1st goal; 9/4 last goal; 9/4 two or more; 10/1 hat trick.

WARNOCK BACKED TO BE NEXT BOSS OUT

NEIL WARNOCK has been cut from 11/2 to 5/2 second favourite by William Hill to be the next Premier League boss to leave his club. ‘His outbursts are becoming ever more outspoken ,Rangers are slipping into relegation trouble, and we’ve started to see cash for him to be the next to go’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. Hills offer 8/11 that Warnock will still be Rangers’ boss on the first day of next season,Evens not.
Steve Kean is 6/5 favourite to be the next boss out with Hills who also offer 7/2 AVB/Coyle; 8/1 McLeish; 12/1 McCarthy; 16/1 no more to go this season. Others on request.

Webb Winner And Goal Line Technology

GOAL LINE TECHNOLOGY NOW ODDS-ON FOR WORLD CUP, SAY BOOKIES

William Hill believe it is now an odds-on shot that goal-line technology will be in place when the next World Cup Finals get underway in 2014. ‘Having offered 5/1 about it happening after the Lampard fiasco we are now going 1/2 that it will be a done deal when the next Finals kick off’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

William Hill…..Will goal line technology be in use for the first match of the 2014 World Cup Finals?

Yes 1/2
No 6/4

WEBB’S WORLD IS A WINNER

HOWARD WEBB, who was backed down from 6/4 to 4/11 to take charge of the World Cup Final, is more likely to award a penalty than to send a player off in normal time at the Final, say bookmakers William Hill who offer 3/1 about the former, and 7/2 the latter. ‘Webb was well backed to get the Final,so he is the only Englishman to cost us any sort of World Cup payout’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Le Misérable – French Misfits Costs Punter £110,000

One William Hill client suffered serious collateral damage amounting to £110,000 when South Africa put an end to France’s World Cup dreams.

The punter, a telephone client, placed a £55,000 each way bet on France winning the World Cup before the tournament, but unfortunately for the punter.

The French will now set their sights on reaching the next major tournament – Euro2012.

William Hill have pushed France out to 2-5 from 1-3 to win their qualifying group.

Meanwhile, Thierry Henry is now 1-4 never to play for the French national team again, and the former French captain, Patrice Evra, who was at the centre of a training ground bust up with the fitness coach, is a 4-6 shot never to play for his country again.’
