0 Have your say Former Hibs head coach Neil Lennon has been tipped for a shock return to Celtic should Brendan Rodgers take the Leicester City job. Bookmakers sportnation.bet have installed the Northern Irishman as the 8/11 favourite to replace his countryman, who has been linked with succeeding Claude Puel at the King Power Stadium, with some bookies offering 4/5 odds that he’ll return to the English Premier League. Lennon won three league titles and two Scottish Cups during his four-year stint as Hoops boss between 2010 and 2014, before a somewhat ill-fated spell with Bolton preceded his two-and-a-half-year tenure at Easter Road. While the former Celtic midfielder is also priced at 8/1 to take the Leicester job - returning to the club he represented for four years in the late nineties - he has emerged as the front-runner to take over from Rodgers.Another ex-Hoops midfielder in Roy Keane is the second favourite at 5/1 while Kilmarnock manager Steve … [Read more...] about Could Neil Lennon be set for shock return to Celtic if Brendan Rodgers joins Leicester?

But who is the 57-year-old, who is in his second spell with the team? And the one, who called the head coaching job a "lonely one."Philbin got his first taste of the big leagues when he joined the Packers as an assistant offensive line coach in 2003. He gradually rose … [Read more...] about Mike McCarthy: Who Is Joe Philbin? Packers’ Offensive Coach Offered Second Chance
Dean Smith revealed yesterday, following Brentford's pre-season friendly draw with Southampton, that there had been "no offers" for Jota . The Spanish ace has been the subject of much speculation this summer, with a number of Premier League clubs interested in signing him. Newcastle United, Burnley, Everton and Derby County have all been linked with an £8 million move for the 25-year-old, but the Bees have yet to receive a formal offer. Another club have also been credited with an interest - West Ham - and it is the London Stadium where the bookmakers believe Jota will be plying his trade next season. The Hammers are now odds-on favourites to sign the Spaniard, with the odds on him joining Slaven Bilic's men tumbling in the last 24 hours. West Ham are now 1/2 on to sign Jota, with the midfielder only 9/4 to stay at Griffin Park. Newcastle, who have previously cooled their interest, are 5/1. Best announcement ever! Brentford fans react to Ollie Watkins signing … [Read more...] about West Ham are the bookies favourites to land Brentford man Jota
0 Have your say THE season that ended with Bradford City back in the top flight after a 77-year absence had many iconic moments. Stuart McCall falling off a car in the Valley Parade car park, drink still in hand, a few hours after promotion had been clinched is most definitely one. So, too, is Paul Jewell miming the smoking of an imaginary cigar to Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Colin Lee as the clock ticked down at a snail’s pace on the final day with Bradford 3-2 ahead and the Premier League tantalisingly close.And then there is Gordon Watson wheeling away in delight after netting twice in the final three minutes of a pulsating derby against Barnsley that, with the benefit of hindsight, changed everything for Jewell’s Bantams.To score twice in front of a sell-out crowd after being brought off the bench at 1-0 down is the stuff of dreams for any striker. But this was so much more than just getting the better of a local rival. Watson’s cameo … [Read more...] about Bygones: Dream comes true for Gordon Watson in memorable season for Bradford City
The FanDuel Sportsbook in New Jersey is refusing to pay a bettor the $82,000 his ticket said he won by Will Brinson @WillBrinson moments ago • 3 min read Where there is gambling, controversy is almost sure to follow. It's happened already in the new FanDuel Sportsbook, where Anthony Prince believes he is owed $82,000. The book is refusing to pay the bet.Here's what happened, via News 12 in New Jersey: Price, in the fourth quarter of the Broncos-Raiders game during Week 12, went to place a moneyline wager on the Broncos, who were trailing 19-17 at the time. Case Keenum had just completed a pass to the Raiders 18-yard line, setting up a Brandon McManus field goal to win the game. FanDuel attempted to update the live odds on this game to make the Broncos -600 (basically saying it was a sure thing McManus would hit his field goal). But a glitch caused the update to make the Broncos 750-1 to win the game, or +75000. Prince pounced on the … [Read more...] about FanDuel NJ sportsbook refuses to pay bettor $82K on winning ticket, claims glitch caused win
