So you win again – Episode 74

May 24th, 2009

My claim that Charlton and ‘Boro were not exactly goal machines proved accurate as neither team threatened the old onion bag at all! And as a showcase for two potential England managers it was pitiful. Didn’t do themselves much good with that display. Still, I won my bet and that’s the main thing!
Woodsy has not [...]

Ouchy! – Episode 73

May 22nd, 2009

Who would have believed that in a FA Cup quarter final when one team scores early in the first half that there would not another goal scored? Especially as it was Shearer’s last chance for silverwear before he retires. You would have thought Newcastle would really have gone for it and maybe left themselves open [...]

Crouchy! – Episode 72

May 20th, 2009

I won on the Man City/West Ham game, although again, I thought it would actually be Man City who came out on top, not West Ham. But that is the beauty of the “total goals” bet of course!
I then tried the same trick for the Brum/Liverpool match betting that there would either be no goals [...]

My wings have melted – Episode 71

May 18th, 2009

Ok – I was going great guns. Since I began my most recent comeback I had placed 22 bets and only lost on 4 (winning on 18!) – and that is a phenomenal success rate in anybody’s book. There was only one way it could go from there, and so it has proved to be. [...]

Stick to the formula! – Episode 70

May 15th, 2009

So Man City win 2-1 and I win my bet! I like these “total goals” bets so have stuck to that for this evening’s FA Cup replay between West Ham and Bolton. I don’t care who wins just as long as 2 or 3 goals are scored! Now if this one comes up I will [...]

City to Win! – Episode 69

May 10th, 2009

OK, I have now placed my next bet. Man City play Aston Villa this evening in the replay of their FA Cup tie to see who will go forward into the quarter finals. I think City will win, but have decided to go for 2 or 3 goals being scored, as I do think that [...]

Onwards and upwards! – Episode 68

May 2nd, 2009

We are indeed cracking on!
I lost on Man City (but only had 50p on that), but won on Wigan. And I had an extra bet that there would be 2 or 3 goals in the Man U/Newcastle game (and there was 2 thanks to young Mr Rooney). Plus I did place that bet “in running” [...]
