British bookmakers have cut

William Hill have cut their odds about Sam Allardyce FAILING to
see out the season as Newcastle boss from 5/6 to 8/11, and also
now make him 13/8 favourite to be the NEXT Prem boss of the
season to depart. He is 11/4 to be gone before Sunday. Allardyce
is also 7/1 favourite with Hills to be the FIRST Premiership
manager of the season to be dismissed from the dugout. "There
is no doubt that Sam is feeling the heat and needs his players
to bail him out sooner rather than later," said Hill's
spokesman Graham Sharpe.
First Premiership boss of 2008 to see red: 7
Allardyce; 8 Wenger; 9 Keane; 11 Hughes; Moyes; 12 Bruce;
Jewell; 14 Ferguson; Southgate; O'Neill; 16 McLeish; Megson;
Redknapp; 20 Curbishley; Benitez; 25 Next Fulham boss; 33 Grant;
40 Coppell; Ramos; 50 Sven. 10/1 NONE AT ALL to be dismissed.
With Sol Campbell, Harry Redknapp and Arsene Wenger all
compaining about their treatment by fans, William Hill are
offering odd about whether any of the three will be dismissed
for using foul and abusive language during 2008 and offer 6/1
that Campbell will be the first of the three to suffer that
way; 6/1 that Wenger will be first; 8/1 that it will be Redknapp
- and 1/ 4 that all three manage to avoid such a fate.
With Arsenal dropping two points at
Portsmouth, William Hill now make Manchester United 4/7
favourites to win the Premiership title with the Gunners now 5/2
second favourites, Chelsea 8/1; Liverpool 12/1 and both Everton
and Man City 250/1 shots. William Hill make Manchester City 12/1
to remain undefeated at home in the Premier League all this
season - and have them as 9/4 favourites to finish top of the
'Without The Big 4' market in which they also offer 5/2 Everton;
5/1 Villa; 6/1 Portsmouth; 7/1 Blackburn; 9/1 Spurs.
