  1. Surely bankroll management and not chasing losses are two things we CAN do about it?! Having said that, £2864 is still a very good return up to now from a starting bank of £2020.
  2. I don’t have a club side. They’re two very different players to try and compare, but scoring goals for either half of the Old Firm, particularly Celtic, given their recent dominance, doesn’t really impress me.
  3. Again, we’ll have to agree to disagree on that one, given that there’s no real way to prove it either way. I assume that you’re referring to Oli McBurnie? Two very different types of attackers you’re comparing, but I’d say there’s a reason, in terms of standard, that one of them plays every week, in the English Premier League, and the other one doesn’t.
  4. I totally disagree. I don’t think that there are many Scottish Premiership players who could play in the English Premier League, and Griffiths isn’t one of them. Made to look good by playing up front for Celtic, in my opinion. In fact, I’ve just realised that I’m talking to a Hibs fan, so I assume that there is some degree of bias in your opinion of him. Perhaps in mine too, as a Scotland fan.
  5. The Scottish Premiership (and Joe Hart!) never ceases to make Leigh Griffiths look like a good footballer.
  6. Some goal from inside his own half from Kemar Roofe, to seal the win. I think the match should have been abandoned long before then though, due to the waterlogged pitch. I guess the last thing anyone wants at the moment is any more backlogged fixtures, but the conditions they were playing in there were farcical.
  7. I don’t know if it’s down to Steven Gerrard’s know-how, or something else, but since he took over as manager, Rangers have been outstanding in European competition. I’ll admit to having no clue about Standard Liege, but a bet on ‘Rangers or draw’ should be a gift tonight.
  8. Yeah, I’m the same. That’s why I wouldn’t make the initial statement, if I was liable to go against it only 2 days later!
  9. ??? What’s going on here? £525 is way over 3% of your bank. Over 10% in fact.
  10. Also, what is your new staking strategy that you spoke about the other day?
  11. Are these matches broadcast on TV, or even on the PDC website, or any of the betting sites? I like to follow a bet by watching the match, I hate just checking the result afterwards! are* a lot* inconsistencies* a bit*
  12. I think we both seem to agree on a lot of things here, but we just have different ideas on what needs to be done to solve the various issues. A two-year ranking system would probably be a very simple-to-implement, quick step in the right direction. I think that's a good suggestion. We both agree that the margins between players are very fine, so women's tennis has to work harder to find and magnify those margins, in order to create an elite group of recognisable players. If the margins are as fine as they clearly are, then a best-of-3-sets, straight knockout, 128-player tournament, i
  13. No, I’m certainly not in favour of changing the actual structure of a tennis game, or structure of a tennis set. That was the point I was making, that changing the structure of tournaments or of rankings, should be far more preferable than changing the structure of the actual match itself. (I exclude the 3 set/5 set debate from that statement, as 3 sets and 5 sets are both seen as valid forms of tennis which already take place.) That’s nonsense to say there is ‘one glass ceiling only.’ There are loads of ‘glass ceilings’ if that’s what you want to call them. The top 2 seeds avoid each oth
  14. ‘It would be unfair to essentially say to a player that’s really close to the level of another player that the sport is actively going to try to accentuate the gap between them via some kind of glass ceiling.’ Yeah, imagine some kind of seeding system, whereby the 32nd highest-ranked player is given an easier route to the final, and the 33rd highest-ranked player gets no such privilege. That would be ridiculous to distinguish between different players, based on their rankings like that, and award them different advantages accordingly. Oh wait,........... We are living in a tim
  15. It was just a suggestion as an option that should be considered. It certainly works in lots of other sports, doesn’t it? Tennis already do it to some degree anyway. What I had in mind, was something along the lines of the Premier League of Darts, or Champions League in football, with matches at regular intervals throughout the season. Just a suggestion as a way to facilitate more matches between the top players. I’m sure there are easier/better/less radical options though.
