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

8/1 Hodgson To Return To Craven Cottage…or Will Banksy Hijacko Wacko?

Following the unveiling of Fulham’s rather bizarre Michael Jackson statue, bookmakers William Hill are betting on what will happen first to the effigy. Hills offer 6/1 that a pot of paint is thrown over it, while 8/1 is on offer for somebody to put a Roy Hodgson mask over Jacko’s face. Hills offer 20/1 that Banksy decorates the statue and 25/1 that his microphone is replaced by an umbrella.

“To say that the statue has not gone down well, would be an understatement and it would come as no surprise if somebody did decorate it in their own special way,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

What Will Happen To The Michael Jackson Statue:
6/1 Pot of paint thrown over it
8/1 Roy Hodgson mask put on it
10/1 Fulham shirt to be put on it
12/1 Glove hand to be chopped off
14/1 Chelsea shirt to be put on it
16/1 Head chopped off
20/1 For Banksy to ‘decorate’ the statue
25/1 To have the microphone replaced by an umbrella
