In the EPL, this week’s Paddy Power Bulletin looks toward the Premier League weekend with a focus on Adebayor’s first return to Arsenal.  Almost certainly public enemy number one the Arsenal fans will be sure to let Adebayor know exactly what they think of him after that goal celebration in Manchester earlier in the season. Paddy Power are at the ready with their decibel meter and are betting on how loudly Adebayor’s first touch will be booed by the Arsenal fans during the match. The favourite is 121-125 decibels, the equivalent of pneumatic drill roadworks.

Other Adebayor bets include which Arsenal player will foul him first, whether Van Persie shakes his hand in the pre-match line-ups and how the striker might celebrate his first goal, with 10/11 for no celebration and 16/1 for the old finger on lips gesture.

After all the volcano troubles this week Paddy Power are also betting on eruptions in the Premier League with betting on which team will pick up the quickest red card in their match this weekend. For Man Utd’s match against Spurs Paddy Power bet on when will Fergie retire whilst the Money-Back Special will refund losing first/last scorer, correct score and scorecast bets if Spurs win the game. It’s a repeat of last week’s offer when Spurs met Chelsea – and we all know what happened there!

Finally with the likes of Bobby Zamora, Michael Dawson and Adam Johnson making a late run for England’s World Cup Squad Paddy Power has latest betting on the fringe players who still have it all to play for this season in the hope of gate-crashing Fabio’s World Cup plans

Adebayor Decibel Betting.

Arsenal fans’ public enemy number one won’t have been forgiven for his celebrations at the City of Manchester Stadium earlier in the season. How loudly will his first touch be booed by Gooners on Saturday?


6/1       100 – 105db

4/1       106 – 110db

5/1       131 – 135db

12/1     136 – 140db



*As a guide 100db = a revving motorbike, 115db = an average rock concert, 132db = loudest football match ever recorded: Besiktas v Liverpool Istanbul 2008. Paddy Power will record the sound levels from the stands during the match


Will Adebayor dare to celebrate if he scores at The Emirates?

So we’ll see where we go with these bets.  If we don’t get to £150 I can always go and see Sohan in Bombay Blues.  I’ve not been for ages but the buffet’s excellent value for money.  I tell you what, if we win the league this season I’ll take every reader of punters corner who gets this far out for a slap up meal at Sohan’s.  Post a comment if you think I need to book a table.
