Liverpool 4/1 to win some silverware this season

Following the news that Liverpool football club are in the process of being sold, Sky Bet make the Reds 4/1 to win some silverware this season (1/7 win no silverware).

This season has seen Liverpool make their worst start to a league campaign since 1953-54, when they were relegated. The Reds are currently in 18th place in the Premier League with only one win from their first seven league games. It's 13/2 for Roy Hodgson's men to finish in the top 4 of the league this season and 7/4 they qualify for European football in the 2011/12 season.

Once the deal has gone through the new owners could look towards a change in management. Sky Bet make Roy Hodgson 4/7 to still be in charge come the end of the season (5/4 leaves before the end of the season).

Sky Bet's Tim Reynolds said: "After such a terrible start to the season this is exactly the sort of news that Liverpool need. Once the deal has gone through it will allow Roy Hodgson and his team to concentrate on their problems on the field."

Jimmy Harvey 6/4 favourite in next Hereford United Manager betting

Following the sacking of Simon Davies, Sky Bet make former Hereford midfielder Jimmy Harvey the 6/4 favourite. Former Oldham manager Dave Penney is the 5/1 second favourite whilst Martin Allen is next best at 6/1.

Current caretaker boss Jamie Pitman is 12/1 to keep the role.

Sky Bet's Tim Reynolds said: "Harvey enjoyed a good spell as a player at Hereford, where he made 278 league appearances and with his managerial experience, we feel that he is in a strong position to replace Simon Davey."

Steve McClaren 25/1 to be the next England manager

Following comments from Sir Trevor Brooking that Steve McClaren could manage the England national team again, Sky Bet make the current Wolfsburg coach 25/1 to take over from Fabio Capello.

Capello is set to stand down at the end of the Euro 2012 finals and if the FA are to follow through with their desire to employ an Englishman, McClaren could easily be high on the list having just guided FC Twente to the Dutch championship.

Harry Redknapp is the 7/4 favourite to succeed Capello whilst the current England Under-21 coach Stuart Pearce is next best at 4/1.

Sky Bet's Tim Reynolds said: "The unfortunate thing for McClaren is that he will always be remembered as 'the Wally with the brolly' who failed to guide the national team to Euro 2008 but if he can make the same impact at Wolfsburg that he did at FC Twente, then he will surely be high on the FA's list of candidates."
