Carroll Cut For Kop-chop…borini Backed To Rejoin Brendan

Brendan Rodgers wants to stamp his mark on the Liverpool squad and William Hill are now betting on which players will come and which ones will go. With a bid for Fabio Borini confirmed by Roma, the Italian is 2/7 to move to Anfield before the end of the transfer window. Another name who has been widely mooted with a move to Liverpool is that of Clint Dempsey and he is 5/4 to join the Rodgers Revolution. Other potential signings include Gaston Ramirez at 6/4, Matt Jarvis at 9/2, Scott Sinclair at 4/1 with Darren Bent and Mark Davies at 6/1 each.

On the other side of the coin, there could be a couple of players on the move, with Andy Carroll perhaps the highest profile of the lot. William Hill have cut him slightly from 4/1 to 11/4 to go, with AC Milan 6/1 to have signed him by September 1st. Alberto Aquilani has enjoyed two successful years in Italy whilst being on loan from Liverpool and he is 8/15 to leave Liverpool by the close of the transfer window. Joe Cole is 2/1, Martin Skrtl 5/1 and Charlie Adam 11/4.

“Rodgers has claimed that everyone will have the chance to prove themselves but the long ball to Andy Carroll will undoubtedly be banished to the annals of Anfield history and that could mean the man himself may also become redundant,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

LA LIGA: NEW FACES BUT RIVALRIES STILL THE SAME?
With the announcement of the Spanish La Liga fixtures today, Hills make champions Real Madrid the 4/5 favourites to regain the title. They meet Valencia in their opening match but their games against Barcelona in October and March will provoke the most betting interest. William Hill offer 5/1 that Barcelona pick up six points from the two encounters, 6/1 that Real Madrid do so and 7/4 that the two teams pick up three points each.

Messi is 4/5 to score more goals than Ronaldo, while Ronaldo is offered at 10/11 to outscore Messi. Ronaldo to be top goal scorer and Real Madrid to win La Liga is 9/4 with Hills whilst the same bet with Messi and Barcelona is offered at 11/4.

Who will sign for Liverpool by the end of transfer window:
Borini : 2/7 Yes, 5/2 No.
Dempsey: 5/4 Yes, 4/7 No.
Gaston Ramirez: 6/4 Yes, 1/2 No.
Matt Jarvis: 9/2 Yes, 1/8 No.
Darren Bent: 6/1 Yes, 1/12 No.
Mark Davies: 6/1 Yes, 1/12 No.

Who will leave Liverpool by the end of transfer window:
Aquilani: 8/15 yes, 11/8 No.
Cole: 2/1 Yes, 4/11 No.
Carroll: 11/4 Yes, 1/4 No.
Adam: 11/4 Yes, 1/4 No.
Skrtl: 5/1 Yes, 1/9 No.

La Liga 2012: 4/5 Real Madrid, 1/1 Barcelona, 50/1 Malaga, 66/1 Valencia, 80/1 BAR.

Goals Match Bet (La Liga): 4/5 L Messi, 10/11 C Ronaldo.

Barcelona Points Vs Real Madrid (La Liga): 7/4 Three, 7/2 Four, 7/2 One, 5/1 Six, 6/1 None, 11/1 Two.

Real Madrid Points Vs Barcelona (La Liga): 7/4 Three, 3/1 One, 10/3 Four, 5/1 None, 6/1 Six, 11/1 Two.

9/4: Cristiano Ronaldo to be top league goal scorer and Real Madrid to win La Liga.

11/4: Lionel Messi to be top league goal scorer and Barcelona to win La Liga.

Sunderland Favourites To Avenge Their Tyne/Tees Humiliation

William Hill are offering 100/1 that Sunderland can reverse the 5-1 drubbing that they received at the hands of their bitter rivals, Newcastle, earlier in the season and win 5-1 at the Stadium of Light. Sunderland are 5/4 to win the game outright. Hills are offering 4/7 that Sunderland finish above Newcastle in the Premier League this year with Newcastle 5/4 to finish above Sunderland. Sunderland are 4/1 to qualify for Europe this year while Newcastle are 14/1 to do so. Darren Bent is 9/4 to outscore Andy Carroll on Saturday.

“Sunderland have been on an incredible run of form recently and they will be itching to set the record straight after the 5-1 thumping at the hands of their neighbours earlier in the season,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “The odds suggest that come Sunday evening, it will be the Mackems that are celebrating.”

Sparky Faces Fight To Save Fulham Stars… Becks To Return To East London?

Following the news that Mark Hughes is set to be named as the next permanent Fulham manager, William Hill have opened a book on which of Fulham’s stars will stay and which will go. Mark Schwarzer is 1/4 to have left Fulham amid reported interest from Arsenal. He is 11/4 to still be at Fulham come the end of the transfer window. Captain Danny Murphy is 1/9 to be staying at Fulham. Last season’s Player Of The Year, Bobby Zamora is 1/8 to stay. Elsewhere Paul KoncheSky is 6/5 to go, 8/13 to stay and Brede Hangeland is 11/4 to go, 1/4 to stay. If he manages to keep his best players, it appears that Fulham may well have a season very much like the last one. Fulham are 1/16 to stay up, 7/1 to get relegated, 2/1 to finish in the top half and 4/11 to finish in the bottom half.

“Mark Hughes will be hoping that he can hold on to the majority of Fulham’s best players as and if he does, we believe that Fulham could have a decent season,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill Odds:

To Leave Fulham Before The End Of The Transfer Window:

Mark Schwarzer: 1/4 Yes; 11/4 No

Brede Hangeland: 11/4 Yes; 1/4 No

Paul KoncheSky: 6/5 Yes; 8/13 No

Danny Murphy: 5/1 Yes; 1/9 No

Clint Dempsey: 4/1 Yes; 1/7 No

Bobby Zamora: 9/2 Yes; 1/8 No

David Beckham has promised West Ham that he will give them an answer as to whether he will join them, within the next few days. William Hill make him 4/1 to return to East London, the place of his birth.

“The odds suggest that while it is not certain he will be leaving LA, he is obviously giving it some serious consideration,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.
