Dalglish Odds On For The Chop For The First Time Since Taking Over!

Liverpool were able to arrest their alarming run of defeats but only managed a draw at home to Aston Villa. For the first time since taking charge, Kenny Dalglish is odds on, at 8/11 to no longer be in charge of Liverpool on the first day of next season (Even money to still be there). Hills make Jose Mourinho and Martin O’Neil the 5/1 favourites to take over from Dalglish with Andre Villas-Boas 8/1.

“Dalglish may be a legend at Liverpool, but there is only so much time his status can afford him and we now think his days may be numbered,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Following their somewhat fortuitous victory over Wigan, Hills make Chelsea 9/4 to finish in the top four of the table and Di Matteo is 2/1 joint favourite to get the Chelsea job on a permanent basis. Jose Mourinho is 2/1 with Pep Guardiola 7/1.

Clint Dempsey scored two goals for Fulham to crown a week where his name has been linked with the tw North London sides although William Hill think that he will still be at Fulham come the start of next season offering 1/6 that he is still there (7/2 he is not).

Kenny Dalglish still at Liverpool on first day of next season: 1/1 yes; 8/11 no

Next permanent Liverpool manager: 5/1 Jose Mourinho; 5/1 Martin O’Neil; 8/1 Andre Villas-Boas; 10/1 Jamie Carragher; 10/1 Brendan Rodgers; 10/1 Rafael Benitez; 16/1 Didier Deschamps; 20/1 Frank Rijkaard; 20/1 Guus Hiddink; 20/1 Marcello Lippi; 25/1 Owen Coyle; 25/1 Bert Van Marwijk; 25/1 Martin Jol; 25/1 Gus Poyet; 25/1 Jurgen Klinsmann; 40/1David Moyes; 40/1 Steven Gerrard

Clint Dempsey still at Fulham on the first day of next season: 1/6 yes; 7/2 no

2/1 Roberto Di Matteo named as permanent Chelsea boss

Top four finish: 1/6 Arsenal; 1/5 Tottenham; 9/4 Chelsea; 7/1 Newcastle

Winner without Manchester United and Manchester City: 10/11 Arsenal; 5/4 Tottenham; 11/2 Chelsea

SCHOLES OUT – YOU BET OWEN HARGREAVES WILL BE NEXT

FOLLOWING THE retirement of Paul Scholes, William Hill have opened a book on who will be the next high profile player to announce officially that he has quit – and make Owen Hargreaves 6/4 favourite, with David Beckham and Michael Owen both 3/1; David James 8/1; Ryan Giggs 9/1; Jamie Carragher 12/1 and Phil Neville 14/1.

YOU BET THEY’LL BE LINING UP TO FOUL TORRES!!

WITH Fernando Torres set to make his Chelsea debut against his former team-mates at Liverpool this weekend, William Hill have opened a book on which of those team-mates will be the first to foul him. ‘Of course not one Liverpool player will wish Torres anything other than a successful career at Chelsea, nor will any of them wish to be found guilty of foul play against him – but it is inevitable that one or more of them will foul him, and we rate Jamie Crragher as the most likely to do so first’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

WITH Blackpool’s Charlie Adam apprently determined to quit the club, William Hill are betting on where he will be playing his football on the first day of next season, and make Liverpool the 11/10 favourites. ‘It appears very unlikely that Charlie Adam will remain a Blackpool player once this season is over and Liverpool appear to be the leading contenders for his signature’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Will Capello Take Harty Approach To Hungary ?

WILL CAPELLO TAKE HARTY APPROACH TO HUNGARY?

William Hill have opened a book on which players might get the nod to start England’s friendly against Hungary next week, and make Joe Hart 2/9 to be between the sticks when the game kicks off – although the Man City custodian is NOT favourite to start in goal for his club’s opening Premier League game, with Hills making Shay Given 4/7 to start that game with Hart at 5/4. ‘Hart is in the unusual position of being expected to be first choice for his country yet under-study at his club’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills make Jack Wilshere a 7/2 shot to start against Hungary, with Darren Bent 5/1 to start up front. ‘Wilshere’s price might tempt Arsene Wenger to have a flutter’ said Sharpe.

YOU BET LEDLEY WILL BE THE NEW RIO

William Hill are betting on who will replace Rio Ferdinand in England’s opening game, and make Ledley King a hot favourite to play alongside John Terry. ‘It is ironic that we are now relying on a player who everyone thought would struggle with the World Cup schedule’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Ledley King: 1/5 Yes 10/3 No

BOOKMAKERS William Hill, who take bets from punters in 188 countries worldwide, say that punters betting online can’t split England and Spain as their favourites. ‘We always expect England to be the most popular choice in our betting shops, but online is a different matter – although we are taking bets from many ex-pat punters we also deal with clients from virtually every country in the world. By and large their choices are closely in line with the betting, although Ivory Coast and USA are perhaps punching above their odds weight!’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.’We are expecting that World Cup turnover online will account for up to 25% of our total tournament betting turnover’

William Hill have opened a book on who will be the first England player to be substituted at the World Cup. ‘Injuries, tactics or players being rested could be the reason for Fabio substituting players, but at this stage it’s anyone’s guess who’ll be the first to receive that unwanted honour!’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

William Hill HAVE CUT Fabio Capello from 7/4 to 11/8 to leave the England job during 2010. ‘Rumours are circulating suggesting that Fabio may be considering a departure straight after the World Cup and punters have cottoned on to that’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Meanwhile, Hills have made Joe Cole an odds-on shot to make the Final 23 in Capello’s Squad while David James is 11/10 favourite to start in goal against USA. ‘The Japan game will have given Capello plenty of food for thought before selecting his final 23 and deciding who is his first choice keeper’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.’We also now make Crouch odds on favourite to start up front with Rooney in the opening game’
