Lambert And Holt Set To Bolt…eden Hazardous Against New Teammates

Paul Lambert looks set to leave Norwich and William Hill offer 5/4 that Chris Hughton gets the job, while Malky Mackay is 7/4 with Steve Bruce 3/1. Grant Holt looks like he could be another person heading for the exit door at Carrow Road and Hills make Sunderland the 13/8 favourites to attract the powerful forward with Aston Villa 15/8. Hills have cut the price of Norwich being relegated, given the current turmoil, from 7/4 to 13/8.

“Holt and Lambert were instrumental in the meteoric rise for Norwich in recent times and their departures could catalyse a downturn in fortunes for the Canaries,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

England take on Belgium at Wembley on Saturday where Eden Hazard will be showcasing his talents on UK soil and Hills offer 6/1 that he outscores his new Chelsea teammates (Cole Cahill and Terry) during the game.

Andy Carroll had a brilliant opportunity to add to his single goal for England against Norway and Hills are now betting on how the Liverpool targetman will find the net. 4/5 favourite is that he bags a goal with his left foot and 6/4 he does so with a header. Carroll is 7/2 to open the scoring against Belgium and 10/11 to score anytime during the match.

Next Norwich manager: 5/4 Chris Hughton; 7/4 Malky Mackay; 3/1 Steve Bruce; 6/1 Tim Sherwood; 10/1 Lee Clark; 10/1 Ian Culverhouse; 12/1 Ole Gunnar Solksjaer; 14/1 Gus Poyet; 14/1 Alan Curbishley; 14/1 Gianfranco Zola; 14/1 Ian Holloway; 16/1 BAR

Grant Holt next club: 13/8 Sunderland; 15/8 Aston Villa; 7/1 West Ham; 12/1 Everton; 16/1 Newcastle; 16/1 Stoke; 16/1 Swansea; 20/1 Tottenham; 20/1 Fulham; 33/1 Liverpool

Eden Hazard vs Terry, Cahill and Cole (goals): 6/1 Hazard; 9/2 Terry, Cahill, Cole; 1/4 Tie
*All four players must start the match or bets void

Tale of two cities: City and United players vs Everton and Liverpool players (goals vs Belgium): 5/6 City & United; 5/6 Liverpool & Everton

How will Andy Carroll score his next England goal: 4/5 left foot shot (not inc Penalty or Free kick); 6/4 Header; 2/1 Right foot shot (not including Penalty or free kick); 12/1 Penalty; 25/1 Free Kick

Goal-line Technology Now 11/4 For Next Season…champions League Latest

Spurs were on the receiving end of a controversial decision at Wembley on Sunday and Sepp Blatter has revealed that FIFA are willing to experiment with goal-line technology in June and William Hill are offering 11/4 that it is in place for the start of the Premier League next season (1/4 it is not).

Another controversial decision came at Old Trafford where Ashley Young won his second dubious penalty in as many weeks and William Hill are offering 3/1 that he is booked for simulation during the run in to the season.

Despite Tottenham’s recent slump in form, culminating in their 5-1 defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup, Harry Redknapp is 1/4 to become the next England manager, with Roy Hodgson 4/1 and Stuart Pearce 6/1.

“Since Capello left England, seemingly thrusting Redknapp into the seat overnight, Spurs have won just once,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “As the old adage goes though, form is temporary, class is permanent.”

Chelsea now have a two legged affair against Barcelona to contest and Hills offer 12/1 that they win the Champions League AND the FA Cup.

Di Matteo has only seen one defeat since he took over as Chelsea boss, but despite this, he is the 11/4 second favourite to become the next permanent Chelsea boss with Hills who go 2/1 Benitez and 11/4 Mourinho.

The Champions League semi finals kick off on Tuesday and William Hill make Barcelona the 6/5 favourites to be the highest scoring team of the four this week, with Real Madrid 5/2, Bayern Munich 11/4 and Chelsea 9/2.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lional Messi both reached the landmark of 41 goals in La Liga and William Hill make Ronaldo the 4/5 favourite to end the season as the leading scorer in Spain, Messi is just behind at 10/11.

La Liga Top Goalscorer: 4/5 Cristiano Ronaldo; 10/11 Lionel Messi

Goal Line Technology to be introduced by the start of next season: 11/4 yes; 1/4 no

Goal-line Technology 3/1 To Be Introduced By The Start Of Next Season

Once again referees were at the centre of controversy, this time Martin Atkinson ruling that Chelsea had scored a second goal at Wembley and William Hill think that there will be even more clamour for goal-line technology than there has been in recent weeks. Backed in from an original 5/1, Hills now offer 3/1 that the FA introduce measures by the start of next season (2/9 that they do not).

“This season has seen a number of high profile refereeing blunders, especially in recent weeks and there will surely, once more, be a call to the FA to introduce goal-line technology,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Andy Carroll scored the winner for Liverpool against Everton in the FA Cup semi final and William Hill make him 8/1 to score the last goal of the match in the final and also offer 12/1 that he is named official Man Of The Match in the final. Liverpool are the 6/5 favourites to win the FA Cup with Spurs 2/1 and Chelsea 9/4.

Luis Suarez was named Man Of The Match and he is 8/1 to receive the award again in the final.

Anton Backed To Snub Terry On Saturday…

BOOKIES FACE BEING SHOOK UP BY HANDSHAKE SHENANIGANS

William Hill have seen a plunge on the odds of Anton Ferdinand snubbing John Terry during the pre match handshakes with the ‘no’ odds backed in from 11/10 to 8/11. “We have seen a number of three figure bets, the majority of which have come from the East End of London and if Mr Ferdinand fails to shake Terry’s hand, we could be all shook up,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Will Anton Ferdinand shake John Terry’s Hand: 8/11 no; 1/1 yes

WILL BELLAMY GIVE BOYHOOD TEAM THE BLUES AT WEMBLEY?

Craig Bellamy has claimed that it will be emotional playing for Liverpool against his boyhood side Cardiff City and William Hill are offering 4/9 that he starts the match at Wembley next month (13/8 he does not). He is 5/4 to bag a goal in the final and 20/1 to see red.

MEGSON COULD GET TROTTERS REVENGE SOONER RATHER THAN LATER!

Gary Megson has reignited his war of words with Bolton Wanderers and William Hill think that he could well get the chance to face up against his former employers sooner rather than later, offering 3/1 that the two teams play each other in the Championship next season. Bolton are 5/6 to be relegated, while Sheffield Wednesday are 11/10 to gain promotion from League 1.

Should the teams face each other next season, Hills are offering 40/1 that Megson receives a red card and is sent to the stands.

“There will be no love lost between Megson and the Bolton fans and he will be sure to be on the receiving end of a bit of stick which could see him lose his rag and be banished to the stands,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Euro 2012…gareth Barry, Goal Machine…rooney Ban

With the Republic of Ireland qualifying for Euro 2012 on Tuesday night, William Hill make them 11/4 to progress further than England in the tournament. Capello’s men are odds on, however, to go further that the Irish at 5/6. By defeating Sweden, England managed to go through the entirety of 2012 without losing once and Hills offer 12/1 that they do so next year (in 90 minutes only).

Reaching the semi finals in the tournament in Poland and the Ukraine would be considered an unbridled success and Hills are offering 6/4 that England reach the last four in 2012 and are also offering 9/2 that they do so in the 2014 World Cup. England are 100/1 to win both the 2012 Euros and 2014 World Cup.

England scored their 2,000th goal against Sweden but unfortunately, it will go down in the record books as an own goal. Hills have decided to pay out on Gareth Barry being first scorer, last scorer, anytime scorer and the 1-0 Gareth Barry scorecast.

“The scoreboard at Wembley displayed throughout the game that Gareth Barry was the goalscorer but despite Daniel Majstorovic being credited as having got the final touch we are celebrating a landmark 2,000 England goals by paying out to any punter who backed the City midfielder to score,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Wayne Rooney will face his disciplinary hearing on the 9th of December and will learn his Euro 2012 fate. He is 11/10 to have his three game reduced and 4/6 that it stays the same or is extended.

England Double (2012 Euros & 2014 WC): 100/1

England to reach Euro 2012 semi finals: 6/4 yes; 1/2 no

England to reach WC 2014 semi finals: 9/2 yes; 1/8

Euro 2012 – England/Rep Ireland Match Bet: 5/6 England; 11/4 Ireland; 2/1 Draw

Wayne Rooney Ban after the hearing on the 9th December: 11/10 Ban is reduced; 4/6 Ban stays the same or is extended
