William Hill Midweek Markets
Ipswich to concede another not so Magnificent Seven??
With Ipswich reeling from a seven goal drubbing at Chelsea in the FA Cup, William Hill are betting on how many goals they will concede in the two legs of the Carling Cup semi final against Arsenal - and make 5-7 their 11/10 favourite.
Ipswich may take a crumb of comfort from the fact that their last two semi final home legs at Portman Road have produced 1-0 home wins - but that eventuality is a 20/1 shot with Hills, while Arsenal are 1/10 to make the Final, with Ipswich 11/2 to get through.
90mins - 7/1 Ipswich; 19/5 draw; Arsenal 4/11.

Grant for next managerial hammering?
Avram Grant is 1/3 favourite with William Hill to be the next Premier League manager to leave his club this season. Hills also offer 11/2 Houllier; 11/2 Ancelotti; 10/1 McCarthy; 16/1 Hughes; 16/1 Martinez; 20/1 Kean; Di Matteo; Mancini; No more managers to go this season. 'Mr Grant has been favourite in this market on five different occasions so far, and managed to survive thus far, so he probably isn't even popular with football punters in general, let alone West Ham fans at the moment' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Beckham 5/1 for England comeback
William Hill offer 5/1 that David Beckham will play any part in ANY England game during 2011 - and 8/1 that he will play any part in any COMPETITIVE England game. 'Should he get to play a number of games for Spurs Beckham could yet increase his tally of England caps' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
**Hills offer 6/1 that Beckham will play for Spurs and score against Manchester United. (Bets void if he doesn't sign.)
