Michael Laudrup has been appointed as boss of Swansea and William Hill are betting on how his troops fare without the guiding influence of Brendan Rodgers. Hills offer 4/11 that they finish lower than the 11th that they finished last season, 3/1 they finish higher than that and 6/1 they finish exactly 11th.
Swansea we described as the Barecelona of the Premier League last season and given Laudrups Barca history, the transition between managers should be seamless, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly. It could be argued, however, that under Rodgers, Swansea overachieved and whether they can do that again this season is questionable.
Andre Villas Boas is the 11/8 new favourite for the Spurs job with William Hill although, two outsiders are really catching the eye. Martin Jol has been backed in from a 33/1 to 16/1 after being well backed in the last 24 hours and Jurgen Klinsmann is in to 8/1 from 12/1 after a punter in Newcastle walked into a William Hill shop and placed £200 on the former Spurs legend getting the gig.
Despite being the early favourite, Moyes is on the drift a bit and more contenders are coming to light each day, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly. It would seem that this one has a long way to run yet.
