Premiership Football

Our "Local" sometimes spit and sawdust, at others a refined winebar. Entertainment is in your hands too - Poledancers? Lunchtime Strippers? Chippendales? String Quartet? Sky Sports?

Betfair let you do strange things !

I cashed the bet out then put it straight back on which increased the profit !


I'm not sure what you did there. I've noticed that they only take commission on the net winnings of any series of bets which is nice.

I think, somewhat sadly, the last piece of football many of us will ever see of the legend that is Paul Scholes may well be that horrendous tackle and him trudging off the field.

I had hoped he'd end on a high but ...

Nick what it seemd to do was

I had a bet at 5/1
it allowed a cashout 3/1 ( presumably by placing bets on the other outcomes )
it then allowed me to reback at 1/1

so lets say I had £5 on

£25 profit if the bet won

the cash out gave a £15 Profit
reinvesting gave a £35 profit ( cos I rebet my original stake )

Such a shame. A very under-rated player in my opinion.

What do you mean by Cashout?

Yes, I remember reading an interview with Darren Fletcher (another underrated player) who said that he laways tried to be on Scholes' 5 aside team in training because whichever team he was in won.

Wenger recently said that Scholes was a dirty player, and that all these bad tackles are no accident. I wondered about that one, Zaboletta's foot was just as high - but he didn't make contact & Scholes did. I fear Wenger maybe right.

If you bet on the match on fixed odd or certain other bets it will give you the option to cash the bet out for a figure which it presumably calculates by working out either laying that bet or betting on the other options

Here's hoping Man City win their last two matches forcing Arsenal down to 4th place and needing to qualify for the Champions League.

Didn't want to gloat, Nick. One good result doesn't make up for the stupid mistakes we've made earlier in the season. We could have done a lot better.

It must be a blow not to make the CL for a second season, but I think Spurs have won a lot of friends for your style of football.

Avron Grant got sacked - I'm not surprised, West Ham have some very good players, goodness only knows how they have managed to get relegated.

Yes, it is but it's our own fault for losing matches against teams near the bottom - West Ham for example.

We had an amazing run in the CL - one stage further than Arsenal but we need to play consistently and not just have the odd few inspirational matches.

That is where money talks. To do well consistently in a season where a team can be playing 2 matches a week, and where half a dozen players may be injured at any one time, you really need a squad of 22 international standard players from whom any 11 can be picked and they will be world class and familiar with playing with each other. Spurs clearly have a 1st 11 who can beat anyone on their day, what you don't have is a 2nd 11 of the same standard.

During the FA Cup final the commentator said that Yaya Toure earns £220,000 per week :shock: There was drama enough when John Terry was earning £110,000 at Chelsea, and it seems only yesterday that Ronaldo renegotiated his £40,000 from Man U!

I don't think the entire Blackpool team earn anywhere near £220,000!

The Board at Tottenham are notoriously tight where spending money on new players is concerned.

Strange because the corporate side flash the cash very lavishly. They overpaid the person who organises referees by more than £100 tonight just because they said he did a good job. My son isn't complaining though.

£100?

I doubt the book keeper records sums that small! The wage bill at Man City/Chelsea must be £200,000,000 p.a. The Changing Room cleaner probably sweeps up more than £100 in lost change.

It's the recognition that counts, not the amount, I was just having some fun. You right to be proud of him.

In other matters you should be nosey & ask Ruth what she is up to these days ......

Yes, I'm a bit curious. I'm waiting for her to arrange another visit. We've done everything but the garden wall here and the last time she came we still had lots to do.

Saw an interesting bet on Sunday

3.9 Man Utd win league & Tevez top scorer

Well he was 2 goals behind Berbatov but is now level

Strange thing is both are now odds on and yet both are 6/4 to lay !

I was looking to lay my original stake off at say evens to twice the stake ie so it would give me a win of my original stake either way

I think my bets are largely over for this season - I'm up £87 on a £25 bet last year, I win £11 if Berbatov is top scorer, I win £1 if Man City are 3rd, if I don't win those I lose £1.

I'm not sure what to do over the summer - look forward to a new season?
