Pardew Loses His Rag And Loses Punters Their Red Card Dough

Alan Pardew became the first Premier League manager sent to the stands and not one William Hill punter backed the Newcastle boss to see red which was offered at 16/1. The most popular selection was 6/1 favourite, Mark Hughes, who, despite his sides poor performance and the warm summer weather managed to remain relatively cool.

Mark Hughes is now the 10/1 favourite to be the next manager to be sent to the stands with David Moyes and Paul Lambert 11/1. Pardew has been cut slightly after his indiscretion to 14/1.

“Alan Pardew’s momentary loss of control will have everyone talking although the odds would suggest that he may well have learnt his lesson,” said Hill’ spokesman Joe Crilly.

Jermain Defoe scored for Spurs, but it was not enough to save his Spurs side from defeat and William Hill offer 11/8 that Emmanuel Adebayor arrives at Spurs before the end of the transfer window.

Next manager to be sent to the stands: 10/1 Mark Hughes; 11/1 David Moyes; 11/1 Paul Lambert; 12/1 Adre Villas Boas; 12/1 Martin O’Neill; 12/1 Roberto Mancini; 12/1 Sam Allardyce; 12/1 Tony Pulis; 12/1Arsene Wenger; 14/1 Alan Pardew; 16/1 Chris Hughton; 16/1 Martin Jol; 16/1 Michael Laudrup; 16/1 Nigel Adkins; 16/1 Steve Clarke; 20/1 Brendan Rodgers; 20/1 Brian McDermott; 20/1 Roberto Di Matteo; 20/1 Alex Ferguson; 25/1 Roberto Martinez

Jermain Defoe Premier League goals: 9/4 1-6; 6/4 7-12; 13/8 13-18; 10/1 19 or more

Adebayor to sign for Spurs before the end of the transfer window: 11/8 yes; 8/15 no

England U21s Odds On To Be Packing Bags After Czech Game…hills 2011/12 Sack Race Odds

England U21s need a win against the Czech Republic if they are to progress from their group and are 23/20 with William Hill to do so. They are 6/10 to fail to win and crash out of the tournament. Whatever happens, England need to score and Daniel Sturridge, one of only a few small bright spots in England’s team, is 11/2 to open the scoring in the match, while Danny Welbeck is 13/2.

“England have so far been underwhelming in the tournament and it may be down to Daniel Sturridge or Danny Welbeck to fire them into the semi finals,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Although the odds suggest that England will be packing their bags after Sunday’s game.”

Stuart Pearce is offered at 3/1 with Hills to become the Team GB manager at next year’s Olympics.

You Bet Rovers Will Be Kean To Get Rid Of Steve Next Season

William Hill make Steve Kean the 3/1 favourite to be the first Premier League manager to leave their position. Mick McCarty is 7/1 second favourite ahead of 9/1 Steve Bruce. “Blackburn only managed to survive on the last day of the season, having been mid table at Christmas and a vast improvement will be needed if Steve Kean does not want to be the first manager out of the door next term,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

At 66/1 Kenny Dalglish, Tony Pulis and whoever takes over the Chelsea role next, appear to be the three safest managers in the league at the minute, with Roy Hodgson, Martin Jol and Sir Alex Ferguson all offered at 40/1. For no manager to leave all season is offered at 100/1.

William Hill have opened a book on which TWO Premier League sides will be relegated – and make Blackpool and Birmingham their 11/10 favourites for the double drop with
a Blackburn-Wolves pairing the 100/1 outsiders. ‘There is enormous interest in the outcome of the relegation scrap so we’ve created a market allowing punters to bet on BOTH of the unfortunate sides who will play in the Championship next season’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills have also opened markets on how many of the five relegation-threatened sides will win at the weekend (8/11 ONLY ONE OF THEM DOES SO), which of them will score the most goals (2/1 WOLVES) and which of the games involving them will be the highest scoring match (7/4 MAN U-BLACKPOOL):
