Next England boss odds on to be English
With the FA apparently backtracking on their pledge that the next England manager will be English, William Hill are offering odds of 2/5 that he will be;11/4 that he will be Scottoish/Welsh/N Irish or Irish, and 6/1 that he will be from any other country.
'Most people are assuming that the next boss with be English but recent FA comments have suggested that is not a done deal' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Blue now odds-on to win nothing this season
William Hill now offer 10/11 that Chelsea will fail to win a major trophy this season plus the Blues are 12/1 not to win any of their next 4 Premier League games
We have cut their odds about Carlo Ancelotti leaving Chelsea before the first day of next season - and opened a book on when the club will next win a Premier League game.
Hills make Ancelotti 5/4 to be gone before next season gets underway, 4/7 still to be boss at that point - and Chelsea are 12/1 with Hills to fail to win any of their next four Prem matches and 7/1 to finish outside of the top four.
'All of a sudden what looked to be the merest of blips is beginning to turn into a fully fledged crisis at the Bridge' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
