FOOTBALL BETTING: Victor Chandler make it a 2/5 shot that Gianfranco Zola is still West Ham manager on June 1st after David Sullivan and David Gold gave the Italian their backing as they took control today.
Chandlers go 7/4 that he gets the bullet.
“It’s a well worn joke that when the chairman gives a manager his backing it means the exact opposite, but we feel that the two David’s are sincere in their wish to see Zola succeed at Upton Park.” said VC spokesman Neal Wilkins.
“That said Zola still has to do the business on the park, and if the Hammers don’t start climbing the table soon then Gold and Sullivan might have no option but to change things.”
The firm also make it a 5/6 shot that the Hammers get over 20.5 Premier League points from now until the end of the season, and the same price that they don’t manage that points tally.
