With Manchester United facing the
prospect of being nine points behind Chelsea if they lose to
them this weekend, William Hill are offering odds of 3/1
that Sir Alex Ferguson will no longer be United boss on the
first day of next season. Hills also offer 8/13 that United
will fail to win any of the four major trophies this season.
'Sir Alex has to quit sometime and if they trail Chelsea all
season, end up trophy-less and perhaps lose Ronaldo before
the start of next season, who knows whether Sir Alex will
want to start all over again next season' said Hill's
spokesman Graham Sharpe. However, Hills offer 2/9 that he
will still be manager on the first day of the 2009/10
United are 250/1 to win all four major trophies, for which
Chelsea are 100/1 - and 11/8 to win nothing.
After having his red card rescinded so
that he will be able to play against Man U at the weekend,
John Terry is 25/1 with William Hill to be sent off during
the game - and 100/1 to be sent off only to have his red
card rescinded again.
**Hills are also offering 16/1 that either Scolari or
Ferguson will be sent from the dugout during the game.
**Hills offer 1/3 that no red cards will be shown during the
game; 11/4 that one will be; 8/1 that two or more will be
shown. (Players and managers all included)
Following their win over Bolton,
Arsenal are 4/1 third favourites to win the Premiership
title with William Hill who make Chelsea 10/11 favourites
with Man U at 5/2 and Liverpool 9/1.
Hills now make Stoke 2/7 favourites to be relegated (5/2 to
stay up) with Hull 4/9 for the drop (13/8 to stay); WBA
11/8; 6/4 Bolton; 5/1 Fulham; Newcastle; 6/1 Wigan; 7/1
Sunderland; 9/1 Blackburn.
