You bet Preston fans will be Browned off!
Despite appointing Phil Brown as their new manager, Preston are 7/4 with William Hill to remain in the Championship and 2/5 to be relegated - while Hills offer Even money that Brown will get them off the bottom of the table at any stage of the rest of the season, but Even money that they never manage to rise above that position.
'Brown seems to relish a challenge - which is just as well considering Preston's current plight' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
After Sir Alex Ferguson called back all of the Man U players on loan at Preston, Hills offer 5/2 that any United player will figure in the Preston side for any Championship game during the rest of the season.
Hills also offer 25/1 that Brown will keep his players on the pitch during half time of any Championship match this season, and 8/1 that the new boss will entertain the fans by singing on the pitch at any stage of the Championship season.
'Brown is one of the game's more eccentric characters so Preston fans can probably look forward to one or two surprise exploits' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
WHERE WILL LIVERPOOL FINISH THE SEASON?
William Hill have opened a book on where Liverpool will finish the Premier League season in the table and make 5th-7th their 11/8 favourite.
'Perhaps it is something of a damning indictment on the general current lack of quality in the Premier League that a club performing as badly as Liverpool can still be predicted to finish on the heels of the top four' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Where will Liverpool finish?
Top Four 20/1
5th - 7th 11/8
8th - 10th 13/8
11th - 14th 3/1
15th - 17th 10/1
Bottom three 25/1
