Vote: Who will be the best of the rest in the Premier League?
As The Spoiler mentioned on Friday, we’re stunned that Coral are offering 5/1 on Everton being the best-placed Premier League team outside the Big Four.
It’s understandable that Manchester City are favourites – after all they could buy every single Everton player at ten times their asking price if they wanted – but to have the team who have finished fifth in each of the last two seasons at such a long price seems like a big mistake.
Yes, they don’t have as much money to spend as City and potentially even Aston Villa and Spurs but they were written off last season for the same reason and as always defied the odds, despite having key players ruled out for long periods with injuries.
Are we overestimating David Moyes or are the bookmakers leaving themselves liable for a substantial loss? Let us know which team you think will be the “best of the rest” in 2009-10 with a vote and comment below:
