Villas Boas burden eased along with odds for the sack
Andre Villas Boas and Chelsea got a vital and comprehensive victory against Bolton at home and William Hill have eased the price of AVB having left Chelsea by the start of next season from 4/6 to Evens (8/11 to still be there). He is out to 4/1 from 3/1 to be out of a job by the time Chelsea visit Birmingham for their FA Cup replay.
"Chelsea played fantastically in the second half of their match and they have helped to ease the pressure on their under fire manager," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "If they can continue to play like they did after the first goal then their manager will have every reason to think his job will be safe."
Despite coming from behind to salvage a point at Newcastle, Hills make Terry Connor 8/11 to NOT be in charge of Wolves for the first game of next season (Even money to still be in charge).
Andre Villas Boas to still be at Chelsea on first day of next season: 8/11 yes, EVS no
Andre Villas Boas to have left Chelsea by the start of Birmingham game: 4/1
Terry Connor to be in charge of Wolves on first day of next season: 1/1 yes; 8/11 no
