If you like to have a bet on the football then now is a great time to use a soccer bets site and get some season long bets on for who will win the league, who will be top scorer and who will get relegated, there are some great odds for these markets on betolimp.com. Before placing any bets however, let’s take a look at some of the top stories going around the league, to give you a better idea fo where each team is headed.
Jack Wilshere moves across London
Jack Wilshere has left Arsenal after an injury plagued career with the Gunners and East London is his destination, as Wilshere will be wearing the claret and blue of West Ham next season.
There has been a great deal of talk about Courtois leaving Chelsea to head back to Spain, with Courtois himself stating last week that his kids live in Madrid and he misses them. First in line to take the gloves on at Stamford Bridge looks to be Brazilian shot stopper Allsson, who has not only stood out for Roma this year but also Brazil in the World Cup. Italian newspaper Sussidiario claim that terms have been agreed between Roma and Chelsea, and the deal could be tied up once the tournament in Russia comes to a close.
Emery for youth?
It is fair to say that Unai Emery has his work cut out as he tries to re-invent a failing Arsenal team. Emery has already been strong in the transfer market, bringing in the experience of Sebastian Lichtsteiner and Papastathopoulos, but it could be in youth that the new manager is looking to, in order to take Arsenal to the next level. Emery has been brining many of the club’s academy players into training, including Emile Smith-Rowe, one of the club’s hottest prospects. Emery may very well look to the experienced stars to help blood these bright young lights, in his effort to propel Arsenal up the league.
Tony Henry banned for a year
Former head of recruitment at West Ham has been banned from all football-related activity for a year, following his negative comments about African footballers. Henry was sacked by the club after his outburst, in which he stated that African players “cause mayhem” if they are not in the team. The FA launched their own enquiry and have subsequently banned Henry for a year, and demanded that he take an FA education course before returning to the sport.
