7/2 For Blackburn’s Under Fire Trio To Leave Club

After the humiliating apology issued to Steve Kean and Morten Gamst Pedersen by Blackburn global advisor, Shebby Singh, William Hill are offering 7/2 that all three have left their positions by the end of the Championship season.

“It is no secret that Steve Kean is walking a tightrope after relegation last season but Shebby Singh has really turned the heat up on the manager now,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “His ill-advised comments about fans’ favourite, Morten Gamst Pedersen, however, have put Singh’s own position under threat.”

Blackburn are 10/1 joint fifth favourites to win the Championship behind favourites Bolton at 6/1 and Leicester at 7/1.

English Championship winner: 6/1 Bolton; 7/1 Leicester; 9/1 Leeds; 9/1 Wolves; 10/1 Blackburn; 10/1 Cardiff; 11/1 BAR

English Championship promotion: 7/4 Leicester; 2/1 Bolton; 5/2 Wolves; 3/1 Leeds; 4/1 Blackburn; 4/1 Cardiff; 4/1 Nottingham Forest; 5/1 BAR

Blackpool Hit By Hammer Blow…irons Odds On To Stay Up

West Ham won the ‘Richest Game In English Football’ and earned themselves a place at the top table once again and William Hill now make The Hammers 8/11 to survive in the Premier League next season (Evens to go down). There always has to be one unlucky side in the Playoffs and Blackpool were that side on Saturday. Their fans should take heart however, as they are 5/1 to go up next season and 16/1 to win the league.

“West Ham are back where they feel they belong and it looks like their stay will be more than one season,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Blackpool 2012/13 Season: 16/1 Win the Championship;

West Ham 2012/13 season: 8/11 stay up; 1/1 relegated; 2000/1 win the League

Birmingham Connection Vying For Number 1 Spot…danish Manager 9/1 For Title To Save His Bacon

Roy Hodgson has called Birmingham’s goalkeeping coach, Dave Watson, onto his coaching staff, sparking rumours that three former or current Birmingham keepers could be called up to the Euros squad. Former keeper Joe Hart is 1/500 to be in the squad, with another ex-Birmingham keeper, Ben Foster, offered at 1/2 to go the Euros. Current England U21 goalkeeper, Jack Butland, currently working under Watson at Birmingham, is 4/1 to make it onto the plane to Poland and the Ukraine.

“Dave Watson has overseen the developments of a number of good goalkeepers and it can only be a good thing that a number of the contenders for the goalkeeper’s jersey have previous experience of him,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Wolves have announced Stale Stolbakken as their new manager and William Hill make him 9/1 to win the League in his first season and 11/4 to get Wolves back into the Premier League via any means necessary. Wolves are 12/1 to be relegated next season.

Amidst reports that Roy Hodgson has already spoken to Steven Gerrard, William Hill have slashed his price of being England captain against France at the Euros from 13/8 to 8/11. Former favourite, Scott Parker has gone from 6/5 to 2/1, while goalkeeper Joe Hart is the 13/2 third favourite.

England Captain vs France at Euro 2012: 8/11 Gerrard; 2/1 Parker; 13/2 Hart; 20/1 Ferdinand; 20/1 Lampard; 25/1 Barry; 50/1 A. Cole. Others on request…

Goalkeepers to go to the Euros:

Joe Hart: 1/500 yes; 33/1 no
Ben Foster: 1/2 yes; 6/4 no
David Stockdale: 6/4 yes; 1/2 no
John Ruddy: 11/2 yes; 1/10 no
Jack Butland: 4/1 yes; 1/7 no
Frank Fielding: 10/1 yes; 1/33 no
Scott Loach: 16/1 yes; 1/100 no
Rob Green: 1/3 yes; 9/4 no

Wolves in the Championship:

12/1 Relegation
11/4 Promotion
9/1 Win the league

Race For Top Four Back On…bolton 10/3 To Lose Last Two Games

The race for fourth place took another twist as Newcastle won at Chelsea ad Spurs thumped a woeful Bolton Wanderers. Spurs are in to 1/5 to finish the season in the top four, with Arsenal 1/12 and Newcastle 5/2. Chelsea’s best hope of Champions League football next season is to win this year’s competition as they are now 20/1 to bag a top four spot.

“The race for the top four has really warmed up again and this could be yet another battle in the Premier League that could go down to the wire,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Harry Redknapp is 5/1 to be named the next England manager after a disappointing week on that front, while Alan Pardew, who has masterminded a fantastic rise to the top for Newcastle, is 12/1.

At the other end of the table, Bolton are 10/3 with Hills to lose their final two games of the season. Bolton are 5/6 to be relegated with Blackburn 1/66 and QPR 5/6.

Relegation: 1/66 Blackburn; 5/6 QPR; 5/6 Bolton; 20/1 Wigan; 20/1 Aston Villa

Without Manchester: 2/5 Arsenal; 2/1 Tottenham; 8/1 Newcastle; 40/1 Chelsea

12/1 Alan Pardew to be NEXT England manager

Relegation Latest…bsp Playoff Prices

Wigan absolutely thumped Newcastle to move further away from the drop zone and William Hill now make them 10/1 to go down. At the Stadium of Light, Bolton were held to a 1-1 draw and they are 11/8 for the drop. Blackburn (1/10) and QPR (8/11) appear to be the most likely sides to go down with Wolves.

Wigan’s late surge has seen a number of clubs declare their interest in their manager and he is 5/6 to have left Wigan by the start of next season.

Wrexham and Mansfield are both 2/1 to win the BSP playoffs with Luton and York both offered at 10/3.

End Of The Chelsea Pensioners…ash Dives To Splash Everton…pepe 6/1 To See Red

Much has been made of the fact that Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba, despite their impressive performances against Barcelona, could be on their way from Chelsea at the end of the season. William Hill are offering 11/4 (Lampard) and 11/10 (Drogba) that they have left by the time the 2012/13 Premier League season kicks off. Chelsea face Arsenal without Wednesday night’s talisman and Hills think that they could struggle with Robin van Persie 6/4 to outscore Fernando Torres.

“If Di Matteo gets the Chelsea job on a full time basis he may want to keep these seasoned pros for one more season but it is inevitable that all good things have to come to an end and the Blues may dispense of them to make way for younger players,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Sir Alex Ferguson has warned Ashley Young that he could earn himself a reputation if his theatrical antics continue but despite this William Hill are offering 10/1 that the Reds’ winger wins his side a penalty against Everton to make it three in three home matches.

One of the most important El Clasicos in recent years takes place on Saturday and William Hill are expecting a feisty affair, offering just 11/10 that there is a red card during the match. The main perpetrator of El Clasico shenanigans, Pepe, is 6/1 to see red during the game. Currently, Ronaldo and Messi are tied on 41 goals in La Liga but William Hill are offering 8/11 that the Real Madrid flyer bags more than his Barcelona counterpart between now and the end of the season (Even money that he does not).
