Spot on! – Episode 67

April 24th, 2009

C’mon son! The more observant of you will realise by now that both my bets came up on Wednesday evening – The Arse restricting Real to a nil-nil stalemate and Liverpool losing 2-0 to Benfica. I actually expected Liverpool to win 2-0 but I still won my bet because 2 goals were scored!
Arsenal are actually [...]

An added time loss! – Episode 66

April 22nd, 2009

Well would you believe it? My bet was looking good until this time the added time goal went against me! Chelsea were 1-0 down until given a soft penalty in added time which Lampard duly converted. Still, I can’t really complain having 3 “added time” wins recently.
Onwards and upwards. And so to The Arse V [...]

Another added time save – Episode 65

April 20th, 2009

Phew! That was close again! Since I re-started this experiment I have won 3 times through goals being scored in added time – first with Man City, then with England and now with Man Utd! Wigan were very unlucky to lose that one 1-2 after being one up. But , as they say, one man’s [...]

More footy wins! – Episode 64

April 14th, 2009

The run continues! My hunch about The Arse proved correct as they whipped Fulham 0-4! The Man U/Wigan game was postponed until this evening so we will know that outcome of that one as well shortly. I also placed another winning bet which was that there would be nil or 1 goal in the Liverpool/Charlton [...]

More footy bets – Episode 63

April 12th, 2009

OK so after much deliberation I have decided to stick to strategy and go with Premiership big guns Arsenal and Man Utd (ÂŁ1 bets on each). Arsenal got a superb win recently against Real Madrid which will have given them great confidence so I think they will beat Fulham today, even though the game is [...]

England beat Uruguay! – Episode 62

April 10th, 2009

So I get back from the driving range, where I had been busily grooving my golf swing faults, to see that England were 0-1 down with 20 minutes to go. Oh no – bad news indeed. Rooney had obviously been subbed and things were not looking great. Until Joe Cole crosses superbly for human beanpole [...]

Japan go down – Episode 61

April 4th, 2009

Right so Blue Square tells me that I lost my bet on Japan. However, I can’t find the result anywhere on the net would you believe? Not on SkySports, not on the BBC. It obviously is out there somewhere but I can’t be arsed to search for it any longer. The match was either a [...]

The third comeback! – Episode 60

April 1st, 2009

OK so on Sunday 19th Feb. I had this urge to stick another tenner Blue Square’s way. No real idea why, just hadn’t had a bet lately and I don’t like the fact that this experiment seems to have failed. I`m sure it can work! So now I`m back again! And this time it’s personal! [...]
