Martinez 5/2 To Take The Crown From King Kenny

It appears likely that Kenny Dalglish will step down as manager of Liverpool today and William Hill make in-demand Wigan boss, Roberto Martinez, the 5/2 favourite to be the next boss at Anfield. Dalglish’s number two, Steve Clarke is 4/1 with Hills who also offer 5/1 Benitez, 7/1 Brendan Rodgers; 12/1 Martin O’Neill, 14/1 Andre Villas Boas and 16/1 about both Mourinho and Carlos Ancelotti.

“Despite his second stint in charge of Liverpool not quite being as successful as his first, he still remains a legend in Liverpool and his boots will be very big ones to fill,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Next Liverpool Manager: 5/2 Roberto Martinez; 4/1 Steve Clarke; 5/1 Rafael Benitez; 7/1 Brendan Rodgers; 12/1 Martin O’Neill; 14/1 Andre Villas-Boas; 16/1 Jose Mourinho; 16/1 Carlo Ancelotti; 20/1 Didier Deschamps; 20/1 Marcello Lippi; 20/1 Jurgen Klinsmann; 20/1 Paul Lambert; 25/1 BAR

RUDDY HELL! JOHN BACKED TO BE ON PLANE TO POLAND

John Ruddy, the Norwich City goalkeeper, has been backed in from 5/1 to 1/5 to make the England squad with Scott Carson’s price going the other way from 10/11 to 2/1 and David Stockdale’s going from 10/11 to 4/1.

“John Ruddy had a fantastic season, at some points singlehandedly keeping Norwich in matches and there has been quite a clamour in the last 24 hours to back him for a deserved England call up,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

With Scott Parker struggling with injury, William Hill have also cut his odds of not going to the Euros from 12/1 to 7/2. Paul Scholes could be the man to profit if Scott Parker does not make the squad, with Hills making him 6/4 for a sensational return to the England fold (1/2 he is not). Regardless of whether he makes the England squad, Scholes is 5/2 to start the game against France at the Euros (he is 2/7 not to).

CHAMPIONS SET TO GO OUT ROBIN & RAID ARSENAL AGAIN!

Manchester City have earmarked Robin van Persie as their number one summer target and William Hill offer 8/11 that the current Premier League Player of the Year has left Arsenal by the start of next season (Even money he is still there).

William Hill are offering 6/4 that Joey Barton’s ban, stemming from his incredible lack of self control against Manchester City, is 12 or more games (1/2 it is shorter).

“We were originally offering 5/6 that Joey’s ban would be shorter than eight games, but that was backed off the boards and so we had to bump up the number of games to 12,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

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.

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

Frank Lampard bagged a goal for Chelsea against Valencia and William Hill offer 1/2 that he starts Chelsea’s match against Bolton this weekend. He is 6/4 not to.

Frank is 2/1 to take his place on the pitch at Wembley next month.

Ancelotti Safe…for Now: But Hiddink 6/4 To Step Into The Breach

Chelsea have denied that Carlo Ancelotti is leaving Chelsea and have assured him of his short term future. This does not stop him from being the 11/4 second favourite at William Hill to be the next Premier League manager to leave their post. Avram Grant is the 10/11 favourite in the sack race while Roberto Mancini completes the top three at 4/1. Ancelotti is 1/10 to have left Chelsea before Roman Abramovich.

“Ancelotti, looks safe for now but the odds suggest that he is on very shaky ground,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Chelsea are 5/4 to win no trophies this season, although the Blues are 11/10 to win this year’s Premier League.

Guus Hiddink is the 6/4 favourite to be the next permanent Chelsea manager, ahead of 13/2 Didier Deschamps and 8/1 Frank Rijkaard. Fan’s favourite Jose Mourinho is 10/1.

William Hill Chelsea Odds:

Next Permanent Chelsea Manager: 6/4 Guus Hiddink; 13/2 Didier Deschamps; 8/1 Frank Rijkaard; 10/1 Jose Mourinho; 12/1 Fabio Capello; 12/1 Martin O’Neill; 14/1 Jurgen Klinsmann; 16/1 David Moyes; 16/1 Roberto Di Matteo; 20/1 Gus Poyet; 20/1 Marcello Lippi; 20/1 Steve Clarke; 20/1 Gianfranco Zola; 25/1 Harry Redknapp; 33/1 Mark Hughes; 33/1 Sven Goran Eriksson; 66/1 Dennis Wise; 66/1 Ray Wilkins; 66/1 Sir Alex Ferguson

Chelsea Trophies This Season: 5/4 No Trophies; 6/1 Premier League & Champion’s League; 13/2 Premier League & FA Cup; 14/1 FA Cup & Champion’s League; 25/1 Premier League, FA Cup & Champion’s League

Will Capello Dare Drop Rooney Next Time Out? You Bet!

Capello 10/3 to drop Rooney for next game:

FABIO ODDS ON TO STICK AROUND UNTIL 2012
William Hill now make 2012 their 8/11 favourite to be the year in which Fabio Capello ceases to be England manager. ‘Fabio has somehow defied the odds and his critics to retain his job, but he still faces the small matter of Euro 2012 qualification which, on paper, should be straightforward’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. ‘We expect him to blood some new players in the August friendly against Hungary and have opened a book on who might start the game’
Despite Capello hitning at bringing in new faces for the Hungary friendly Hills still make Rooney, Terry, Gerrard and Lampard odds-on shots to start the match. (See prices below)

Hills have lengthened Harry Redknapp’s odds of becoming the next England manager from 13/8 to 9/4 favourite, but slashed Roy Hodgson from 6/1 to 11/4 second favourite. ‘Who knows what Harry’s fortunes will be once the job becomes vacant, but if Hodgson impresses at Anfield he could well be in just the right place at just the right time to take over if Capello departs in 2012’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
