Under pressure Wenger
1-6 to see out season
ARSENE WENGER insisted that Arsenal's Capital One Cup exit at League Two Bradford was not a cause for embarrassment but bookmakers reckon the future is looking bleak for the Frenchman.
The Gunners - 1-6 to qualify when crashing out on penalties on Tuesday night - are 11-10 with bet365 not to win a trophy before the 2015-16 season while Wenger is 1-2 not to pick up any more silverware as Arsenal boss.
Hills don't expect a knee-jerk response from the north London club, however, and Wenger is 1-6 to still be in charge on the final day of this season. He is a best-priced 12-1 with Blue Square Bet to be the next Premier League manager to leave his position, although BetVictor make him 4-1 joint-second favourite with Sunderland's Martin O'Neill.
Reading boss Brian McDermott is their 2-1 market leader.Hills are also betting on when Arsenal next get their hands on a trophy - they go 8-1 that the Gunners, who are in the last 16 of the Champions League but well off the pace in the Premier League, win anything this season.
Arsenal are evens with bet365 to be under new management on the first day of next season. Their conquerors Bradford had even more to celebrate yesterday as they were reinstated in the FA Cup after a successful appeal. The Bantams had originally been thrown out for fielding an ineligible player in their second-round match against Brentford.
That tie will now be decided in a replay next week after the first game finished 1-1 in west London. Bradford were cut to 25-1 for Capital One Cup glory, while Phil Parkinson's men are 12-1 to win the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and 2-1 to win promotion from League Two.
