Oh Dear Ac: Ibra Out, Carroll In…

The rumours that Andy Carroll could be on his way from Liverpool refuse to die down and William Hill make him 11/4 to have left the club by the time the transfer window shuts, whether on loan or permanently (1/4 to still be at Liverpool). AC Milan and West Ham lead the race for his signature with both sides 11/4 to be his next club, with Newcastle 8/1 and PSG and Malaga 14/1.

“Andy Carroll has struggled since his move to Liverpool and a year on loan may give him the playing time that he requires to continue his development,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Rumours in Italy are suggesting that there are a couple of teams sniffing around AC Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic and William Hill make oil-rich PSG the 11/10 favourites to be his next club with Chelsea 6/1 and Manchester City 8/1.

Former favourite for the England manager’s job Harry Redknapp is on the short list released by the Russian FA to become the new national coach after Dick Advocaat left for PSV. The former Spurs boss is 12/1 to make the shock move.

Andy Carroll next club: 11/4 AC Milan; 11/4 West Ham; 8/1 Newcastle; 14/1 PSG; 14/1 Malaga; 16/1 Arsenal; 16/1 Tottenham; 20/1 Chelsea; 20/1 Reading; 20/1 Ajax; 20/1 Stoke; 20/1 Norwich; 20/1 Manchester City; 25/1 Manchester United; 25/1 Bayern Munich; 33/1 Inter Milan; 33/1 Everton; 40/1 Sunderland; 66/1 Real Madrid; 66/1 Barcelona…others on request
*loan deals count

Zlatan Ibrahimovic next club: 11/10 PSG; 6/1 Chelsea; 8/1 Manchester City; 12/1 Real Madrid; 14/1 Manchester United; 14/1 Juventus; 16/1 Bayern Munich; 16/1 Barcelona; 20/1 Inter; 20/1 Arsenal; 25/1 Malaga; 33/1 Ajax

John Terry 1/4 To Miss Out On Euros Squad

John Terry will have woken the morning after possibly his worst performance in a Chelsea shirt, to see that his place in the England Euros squad is no certainty. William Hill make him just 1/4 to fail to make Roy Hodgson’s final 23 for Poland and the Ukraine. There are many saying that Terry and Rio Ferdinand will not be able to play in the same team and it would appear that Rio is the favoured candidate at the moment with Hills making him 4/11 to make the squad.

“This is the first real issue that Hodgson has had to deal with in his role as England manager and the odds suggest that Rio will get the nod for the Euros with Terry missing out,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

The last few games have seen somewhat of a renaissance for Andy Carroll and he is 5/6 to make the Euros squad while his manager went some way towards appeasing the Anfield faithful with Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Chelsea and he is 1/2 to be in charge of Liverpool on the first day of next season.

Will John Terry be in England’s Euro 2012 squad: 1/4 no; 11/4 yes

Will Rio Ferdinand be in England’s Euro 2012 squad: 4/11 yes; 2/1 no

Will Andy Carroll be in England’s Euro 2012 squad: 5/6 yes; 5/6 no

Will Kenny Dalglish be in charge of Liverpool on the first day of next season: 1/2 yes; 6/4 no

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.

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.

Hodgson Fancied For England: Will Gerrard Miss Out On Captaincy?

Roy Hodgson is the 1/8 favourite to get the England job with William Hill after news emerged that the West Brom manager had been approached by the FA. Having been as short as 1/4 on Saturday, Harry Redknapp is out to 9/2 with current interim manager Stuart Pearce 25/1.

“The FA have announced that Hodgson is the first man that they want to speak to, but whether this is an indication that he is first choice is uncertain,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “All those that think Harry is still the man for the job, now have the opportunity to back him at odds against.”

After his missed penalty against Blackburn signalled the end for Hodgson, Hills have pushed out the price of Steven Gerrard wearing the captain’s armband for England’s first Euros game from 5/4 to 11/8, while Scott Parker is in from 5/4 to 6/5. Joe Hart is the 7/1 third favourite.

Carlos Tevez has announced that he would love to stay at Manchester City for the foreseeable future and Hills have cut his odds of staying until at least next season from 6/4 to 1/20.

England Captain for Euro 2012 Game vs France: 6/5 Scott Parker; 11/8 Steven Gerrard; 7/1 Joe Hart; 12/1 Frank Lampard; 33/1 Rio Ferdinand; 33/1 Ashley Cole; 33/1 Gareth Barry

Chelsea’s Captain Fantastic (not Terry) 14/1 For England Armband

FRANK LAMPARD captained 10 man Chelsea to the Champions League Final against Barcelona and William Hill make him 14/1 to wear the armband for England’s first game of the European Championships. However, Steven Gerrard and Scott Parker are the 5/4 joint favourites for the captaincy.

Harry Redknapp is the 1/4 red hot favourite to be named as the next permanent England manager but it is less clear when the FA will announce the appointment of their chosen man. William Hill make it 1/3 that the new manager will take his first press conference between the end of the Premier League and England’s first game at the Euros.

“Redknapp is the red hot favourite for the England job as far as our punters are concerned but no one quite knows when the appointment will be made,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

CHELSEA fantastically drew with Barcelona with ten men and William Hill make the Blues 7/4 to lift the trophy. With John Terry getting sent off and going 2-0 down, the Blues were as long as 20/1 to qualify from the tie. The mastermind behind the victory, Roberto Di Matteo, is in to 4/5 from 7/4 to become the next permanent Chelsea boss. Chelsea will be up against it in the Final having four players ruled out by suspension but Hills make Michael Essien 1/2, Bosingwa 1/5 and Torres 2/1 to start in Munich.

BARCELONA have now failed to win three games in a row, almost unheard of and Hills make Guardiola 5/6 to have left his position by the time the 2012/13 season kicks off.

ASTON VILLA lost on Tuesday to Bolton and William Hill make Alex McLeish 9/2 to have left Villa Park by the start of next season.

Who will captain England for the first game of the European Championships: 5/4 Steven Gerrard; 5/4 Scott Parker; 8/1 Joe Hart; 14/1 Frank Lampard; 33/1 Rio Ferdinand; 33/1 Gareth Barry
*If captain for this game is John Terry then all bets are void

When will Fabio Capello’s permanent replacement have their first official press conference as England manager: 10/3 before the end of the Premier League season; 1/3 between the end of the Premier League season and England’s first game; 20/1 during Euro 2012; 9/2 after Euro 2012

Chelsea players to be there next season:

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

Ashley Young to be booked for simulation in the Premier League season 2011/12: 3/1

Champions League 2/7 To Go Without Goal-line Technology…england/chelsea Manager Latest

With UEFA saying that they may not introduce goal-line technology in their competitions, even if it is given the green light by FIFA in June, William Hill are offering 2/7 that the 2014/15 Champions League kicks off without goal-line technology in place (5/2 they have it). Hills go 10/3 about it being implemented in the Premier League by the first day of the 2012/13 season (1/5 it is not).

Hills are offering 2/1 that goal-line technology is used during the World Cup in Brazil (4/11 that it is not).

Managerial Merry Go Round As England Look Set To Announce New Manager After Season

Liverpool, Everton, Chelsea and Tottenham are the four teams contesting the FA Cup semi finals but despite their relative successes in that competition, William Hill offer 6/4 that two of the four managers in charge (Redknapp, Di Matteo, Moyes, Dalglish) will have left their clubs by the start of next season. Harry Redknapp is one of those managers and he is 1/4 favourite to become the next England manager, with Roy Hodgson 4/1, Stuart Pearce 6/1 and Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola both 12/1. Hills are now offering odds on when the next permanent England boss has his first official press conference and go 8/15 that it is after the end of this season but before the start of the European Championships.

“England will be wary of disrupting any side’s season and so may well wait until after the season to make their announcement,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Hills have pushed out the odds of Roberto Di Matteo becoming the next permanent Chelsea manager from 11/4 to 10/3 despite his strong start in the hot seat. Jose Mourinho is the 9/4 favourite with Pep Guardiola 9/2. Chelsea are 1/6 to qualify for the Champions League semi finals and 8/1 to win the competition. They are 25/1 to win both the Champions League and the FA Cup (for which they are 9/4 to win).

Moyes Celebrating 10 Years At Everton…where Will He Go Next And Will He Go Before Kenny?

The Merseyside derby takes place on Tuesday night and William Hill think that the red side of Liverpool will be the happier both after the game (with Liverpool 4/5 to win the match) and at the end of the season (1/2 to finish above Everton at the end of the season). Despite this, Kenny Dalglish is 11/4 to no longer be in charge of the Reds on the first day of next season (1/4 to still be there) and is 11/10 to have left Liverpool before Moyes leaves Everton (4/6 vice versa).

The game marks 10 years in charge at Everton for David Moyes, but Hills think that he could be on the move soon, offering 6/4 that he leaves the club during 2012, 10/3 he goes during 2013, 5/1 2014 and 6/4 2015 or later. Moyes is currently the 9/4 favourite to be the next man in the Spurs hotseat with Harry Redknapp potentially on his way to become the next England manager. Moyes is also 7/1 to become the next Manchester United manager, 10/1 to become the next permanent Chelsea manager and 20/1 to go to Arsenal next.

“Moyes is hot property and with a number of managers jobs potentially becoming available in the summer, he may not be much longer for Everton,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

The previous derby was spoiled very early on with a red card for Jack Rodwell and Hills offer 11/4 that there is a player sent off during Tuesday’s game.

Chelsea To Go All Out For Victory…bruce And Hodgson Slashed For Wolves And England

Tuesday was a day for managerial moves as Steve Bruce became the 2/1 joint favourite to become the next permanent Wolves boss with Hills. Current caretaker boss, Terry Connor is the same price with Paul Ince the 12/1 third favourite. Meanwhile, Roy Hodgson was backed in from 14/1 to 4/1 second favourite to become the next England manager behind Harry Redknapp at 1/4.

“The constant stream of money that we have seen for Harry Redknapp has started to decrease as Spurs have found it increasingly difficult to win,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Coupled with Harry’s somewhat contradictory statements in regards to the England job we have started to see our punters look elsewhere, with Roy Hodgson well fancied.”

Chelsea are 2/1 to qualify for the next round of the Champions League, although Napoli are 4/11 to knock out the final British side left in the competition. The match is 25/1 to be decided on penalties. Roberto Di Matteo has won his first two matches in charge of Chelsea and he is 8/1 to become the next permanent boss.

Fernando Torres is still firing blanks for Chelsea but he is 6/5 to break his 2012 duck against Napoli, 2/1 to do so against Leicester, 7/1 Manchester City and 10/1 Tottenham. He is 11/10 to score in none of these four matches. Torres is 13/8 to have left Chelsea by the first day of next season (4/9 to still be there). Should Torres start against Napoli, he is odds on, at 8/13 to fail to finish the match.

“Chelsea will have to go all guns blazing in order to get an early goal to settle the nerves but given Torres’ recent form, he may not be the man to back to get the all important goal,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Chelsea stage of elimination: 4/11 last 16; 4/1 quarter final; 8/1 semi final; 16/1 runner up; 28/1 winner

JOSE IN DEMAND? YOU BET HE IS…….

WITH JOSE MOURINHO strongly fancied for a return to Chelsea, William Hill were anticipating taking plenty of bets for him to succeed AVB as permanent boss at Stamford Bridge – so when a Kent punter asked for a £1000 bet on him they were surprised that it was for him to take over at Spurs! ‘Mourinho is being backed to be the next boss at Chelsea, Spurs, Manchester United and England – even a man of his ability is unlikely to be able to complete that set’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.’The available Rafa Benitez and Mourinho are the best fancied Chelsea contenders so far.’
Meanwhile, another ‘next boss’ punter staked £3000 on Harry Redknapp becoming the next England manager. ‘Many punters regard the England job as a fait accompli, but if Spurs continue to concede goals at their current rate it may not be!’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

SPL FAVOURITES TO BE FIRST WITH GOAL-LINE TECHNOLOGY…..

WITH SPECULATION growing that FIFA are set to endorse the introduction of goal-line technology, William Hill have opened a book on which major European league will get to introduce it first and have made the SPL 13/8 favourites. ‘This seems to be a story which has been around forever without actually happening, maybe at last it is imminent. We think the SPL could be well placed to be considered for the honour of staging the first League game to boast goal-line technology.’ Said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

FIRST LEAGUE TO STAGE LEAGUE GAME WITH GOAL-LINE TECHNOLOGY:
Scottish Premier League 13/8
English Premier League 11/4
German Bundesliga 4/1
Spanish La Liga 11/2
French Ligue 1 7/1
Italian Serie A 8/1
Dutch Eredivisie 10/1

ARSENAL 20/1 FOR MIRACLE ESCAPE

William Hill make Arsenal 20/1 to manage to overcome the four goal deficit against AC Milan to make it through to the next round of the Champions League when they face AC Milan on Tuesday night. Arsenal are 23/20 to win the game in 90m, 12/5 to draw, with AC 23/10. Robin Van Persie is 25/1 to score a 90m hat trick. A 4-0 90m win for the Gunners is 40/1, with a 5-0 triumph 125/1.
