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.

Arsene’s Crisis And Transfer Specials…fa(cebook) Cup Odds

Arsenal are having a torrid time of things at the moment with players wanting out, injuries and suspensions. Hills predict that they will struggle to take many points from the next two games (against Liverpool and Manchester United) offering 7/2 they get none and 9/4 just one. Arsenal will need to strengthen if they are to challenge for any honours this year and Hills offer 13/8 that Wenger makes four or more signings before the end of the transfer window. Samir Nasri is 1/12 to leave Arsenal by the end of the transfer window and 6/1 to remain at the Emirates. Arsenal are 1/6 to finish another season with no silverware.

“Arsene is already under pressure and the odds suggest that Arsenal could feasibly have just one point after their first three games,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Wesley Sneijder looks as though his move to Manchester United may be drawing ever closer with Hills making him 8/11 to now make the move from Italy. He is Evens to stay with Inter. Luka Modric has been the subject of a new bid from Chelsea and he is 8/13 to make the Blues his next club.
