Shearer OZ-on to get Cardiff job
A gamble on Alan Shearer to be the next Cardiff boss which began in Ireland has spread to Australia and could finish up in Wales AFTER William Hill slashed the former England skipper from 10/1 to 1/3 after he was heavily backed by Cork-based clients, then attracted bets of up to £600 in south west London, before an Australian-based client of Hills slapped 1000 Oz dollars on him.
‘This gamble has taken some odd geographical twists and turns but they all point to the same destination - Cardiff for Shearer!' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
