Arry England Odds Drift After Drubbing


William Hill have lengthened their odds for Harry Redknapp to be appointed as the next permanent England manager from 4/11 to 4/9 after Spurs’ horror-show at Arsenal.’If Harry thinks the reaction to the Spurs’ fans and the media after that result is bad, he may also consider the effect a similar defeat by England might be greeted when and if he becomes boss of the national team’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
However, the Spurs’ result is good news for Arsene Wenger – a25/1 chance to get the England job – who is now odds-on still to be in charge at the Emirates on the first day of next season with Hills who make him 8/15 still to be there, 11/8 to be gone, while his star striker RVP is 5/6 to be there, 5/6 not to.
Arsenal are now 11/8 for a top four finish with Hills who make Spurs 1/8; Chelsea 4/6; Liverpool 10/3.

Football Betting News From William Hill Bookmaker 2012-02-13 00:00:00

Klinsmann Back To White Hart Lane? Tevez To Return To City? RVP To Madrid?

William Hill are offering 14/1 that Harry Redknapp qualifies for the Champions League for Spurs AND wins the European Championships as England manager. Should Redknapp become the England manager, a job for which he is 4/11 to get, Hills make Jose Mourinho the 9/2 favourite to succeed him at White Hart Lane. Newspaper reports have, however, suggested that current US coach and Spurs legend, Jurgen Klinsmann could be in line to take over and he has been cut from 16/1 to 10/1 to take over from Redknapp.

“Klinsmann is a legend at Spurs and has shown himself to be quite a capable manager as well,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Spurs fans would not be upset with his appointment.”

Fernando Torres’ barren spell continued against Everton on Saturday but Hills reckon he could return to scoring ways in the FA Cup being 6/5 to score his next goal for Chelsea against Birmingham. He is 9/2 to bag his next against Napoli and the same price to do so against Bolton. It is 6/1 for his next Chelsea goal to come against West Brom, although he is 3/1 to fail to score in any of those four matches. Andre Villas Boas is also under pressure at Chelsea and Hills are offering 6/1 that both he and Torres have left Chelsea by the first game of next season.

Carlos Tevez is reportedly returning to Manchester on Tuesday and has been earmarked for a return to the City squad over the coming weeks, but William Hill are odds on (at 4/7) that he does not make another appearance for the Blues this season (5/4 he does).

“The January transfer window has shut and Tevez staying in Argentina does nobody any favours,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “His return could well see him back in the first team squad.”

Arsene Wenger has described the Spanish press as “creative” as they suggest that Robin van Persie could be joining Real Madrid in the summer. William Hill offer 8/11 that van Persie is still at Arsenal on the first day of next season, but also offer 5/2 that he is at Real Madrid. He is 6/1 to have joined Barcelona, 9/1 Manchester City and 14/1 Paris Saint Germain.


William Hill are offering 4/1 that pre-match handshakes will be scrapped officially in Premier League matches before the start of next season. Hills had offered 1/5 that Evra and Suarez WOULD shake hands, and 10/3 that they would not. Hills go 5/1 that Kenny Dalglish and Luis Suarez have left Liverpool by the first game of next season.

After Rio Ferdinand refused to shake hands with Suarez, Hills are offering 11/4 that he and John Terry will NOT start in the same Euro 12 side for England.

When will Torres next score: 6/5 Birmingham; 9/2 Napoli; 9/2 Bolton; 6/1 WBA; 3/1 not to score in any of these matches
*must start the first game or bets void

6/1 Both Andre Villas Boas and Fernando Torres to have left Chelsea by the start of 2012/13 season

5/1 Both Kenny Dalglish and Luis Suarez to have left Liverpool by the start of 2012/13 season

Next Spurs Manager: 9/2 Jose Mourinho; 6/1 David Moyes; 10/1 Jurgen Klinsmann; 10/1 Carlo Ancelotti; 10/1 Brendan Rodgers; 12/1Tim Sherwood; 12/1 Martin O’Neill; 16/1 Mark Hughes; 16/1 Gus Poyet; 16/1Paul Lambert; 16/1 Slaven Bilic; 20/1 BAR

Redknapp to qualify for Champions League with Spurs and win Euros with England: 14/1

Carlos Tevez to play again for Manchester City this season (EPL or Europa League): 5/4 yes; 4/7 no

Robin van Persie club next season: 8/11 Arsenal; 5/2 Real Madrid; 6/1 Barcelona; 9/1 Manchester City; 14/1 PSG; 16/1 AC Milan; 20/1 Inter Milan; 33/1 Chelsea

Bookies Pay Penalty For Balotelli Late Winner

Bookmakers William Hill were left counting the cost of Mario Balotelli’s controversial late winning goal for Manchester City against Spurs – ‘The difference between City winning the game and it being a draw was into seven figures for William Hill alone and must have cost the industry £5m+ as punters steamed into the Manchester double, pairing City to beat Spurs, with United beating Arsenal’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Fans Start Chamber-Layin Into Arsene

As Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain left the Emirates field to a chorus of boos, there hinted the first signs of dissatisfaction towards Arsene Wenger from the Arsenal faithful. William Hill offer 13/8 that Arsene Wenger is no longer Arsenal boss come the end of the season. Oxlade-Chamberlain is 6/4 to be in England’s Euro 2012 squad and 8/13 to be in Team GB’s Olympics squad. Danny Welbeck bagged the winner for Manchester United and Hills make him 2/1 to start the first game of the Euros for England.

“There was a real feeling of discontent around the Emirates as Oxlade-Chamberlain was taken off and the usually steadfast support of Arsene Wenger appears to be crumbling at the moment,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill make Manchester City the 2/5 favourites to win the Premier League, after their last minute penalty helped to maintain their three point lead over 9/4 Manchester United. Spurs however are out to 16/1 while another defeat for Arsenal has left them at 150/1.

With the two Manchester sides seemingly having sewn up a top four finish at least, the race is on to fill the other two spots, with Spurs 1/5, Chelsea 2/5 and Arsenal 2/1, while Spurs also lead the race to win the league without the two Manchester sides at 8/11.

Premier League winner: 2/5 Manchester City; 9/4 Manchester United; 16/1 Tottenham; 50/1 Chelsea; 150/1 Arsenal; 500/1 Liverpool

Top four finish: 1/5 Spurs; 2/5 Chelsea; 2/1 Arsenal; 7/2 Liverpool; 25/1 Newcastle; 100/1 BAR

Winner without Manchester: 8/11 Tottenham; 13/8 Chelsea; 13/2 Arsenal; 20/1 Liverpool; 250/1 Newcastle

Top London Club: 4/6 Tottenham; 13/8 Chelsea; 11/2 Arsenal; 100/1 Fulham; 200/1 QPR

Oxlade-Chamberlain to be in Euro 2012 squad: 6/4 yes; 1/2 no

Oxlade Chamberlain to be in Team GB & NI football team for Olympics: 8/13 yes; 6/5 no

Danny Welbeck to start England’s first Euro 2012 match: 2/1 yes; 4/11 no

Arsene Wenger still at Arsenal on the 1st game of 2012/13 season: 4/9 yes; 13/8 no
