Defoe’s Next Club?

Posted by

Well, if you ask bookies William Hill, you’ll get a quick answer as they’ve put together some odds on where Tottenham striker Jermaine Defoe will playing his Premiership football come next season,

4/5 Tottenham
4/1 Liverpool or Manchester United
7/1 Aston Villa
11/1 West Ham
12/1 Arsenal
16/1 Newcastle
33/1 Chelsea

We normally don’t find ourselves disagreeing with bookies, mainly because we value our kneecaps and non-electrocuted bollocks, but West Ham don’t seem like they’d be the fifth most likely destination given that most of the Hammers aren’t really too fond of their former player these days, and their new Egg-headed chairman is rather keen to win them over.

Also, no Portsmouth? Harry Redknapp allegedly put in a bid for Defoe in January that was turned down and yet they don’t feature at all? The club is flying high in the Premiership right now and always have dosh to throw around, unless William Hill also have them tipped to go down for some reason? And Arsenal 12/1? Unless Defoe plans to set a record for double-Judas duty it seems unlikely.
As Martin Jol rightly pointed out, Defoe may be hungry to play but he has actually started six of the last nine matches while Robbie Keane has only started three, so why isn’t anyone talking about whether the Irishman is leaving? Well, we are, and we can tell you he’s going to ARSENAL! Judas!
