GOAL LINE TECHNOLOGY ODDS-ON BEFORE 2013
William Hill believe it is an odds-on chance that goal line technology will be used in the Premier League before the end of next year. It appears that the inevitable introduction of goal-line technology is moving ever closer said Hills spokesman Graham Sharpe.
William Hill: Year of the first Premier League match to use goal line technology:
by the end of 2012 4/6
2014 or later 7/2
FIRST PREM BOSS TO LEAVE WILL GO IN DECEMBER BET ON IT
William Hill have opened a book on when the first Premier League boss will leave his job this season and Hills go 2/5 that it will happen in December. Several managers are under severe pressure at the moment and we fully expect that one or more wil go before the New Year said Hills spokesman Graham Sharpe.
For the first time, Andre Villas Boas is odds on to be out of his job as Chelsea boss by the first game of next season with William Hill, who make AVB 9/2 fourth favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his club this season. Hills currently make Steve Kean 6/4 favourite with Steve Bruce 9/4 second favourite, Roberto Martinez 5/2 third favourite.
Hills also offer: 7/1 Owen Coyle; 8/1 Alex McLeish; 12/1 Mick McCarthy; 14/1 Harry Redknapp.
We are beginning to see money for no managers to lose their jobs this season, but are happy to leave the price at 10/1 as we cannot envisage that happening said Hills spokesman Graham Sharpe.
In which month will the 1st Premier League manager leave:
February or March 7/1
April until final day of season 20/1
Hills…Next Chelsea Manager: 5/4 Guus Hiddink; 5/1 Jose Mourinho; 6/1 Marco van Basten; 8/1 Pep Guardiola; 16/1 Frank Rijkaard; 16/1 Mark Hughes; 16/1 Fabio Capello; 16/1 David Moyes; 20/1 Rafael Benitez
YOU BET TORRES COULD BE ON WAY OUT, TOO
WITH FERANDO TORRES left on the bench for Chelseas Champions League defeat by Leverkusen, William Hill are betting on where the troubled striker will be playing on the first day of next season:
Where Will Torres Be 1st Day of 12/13 season?
Man City 7/1
Real Madrid 10/1
Atl Madrid 12/1
Man Utd 14/1
Others on request. Loan deals do not count.
UNITED 20/1 TO WIN EUROPA LEAGUE
William Hill make Manchester United 20/1 to win the Europa League this season, with Man City 7/1, and Chelsea 16/1. Some big clubs could find themselves unexpectedly in the Europa League this season and if so it will be interesting to see what sort of appetite they might have to win it said Hills spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Europa League Outright:
Man Utd 20/1
Man City 7/1
**If the stated teams do not take part in the Europa league 11/12, bets are losers.
William Hill…..Premier League team to go furthest in Champions League: 6/4 Man U; 2/1 Chelsea; 9/4 Arsenal; 7/1 Man C;
