  1. Very unlucky with Lomax hitting upright with a drop goal attempt near the end. Roll on the World Cup in a few weeks.
  2. https://www.flashscore.co.uk/ Click on individual games, scroll down and in several (not all) identity of referee is given.
  3. No sign of the Swedish left back for Villa - unfit or injured, so Ashley Young plays😦 . For interest (all with SPIN) have bought Chambers goal mins at 4, Coutinho free kick mins at 3 and Mings headed goal mins at 3. Good luck to silver fox with Sheffield Wednesday.
  4. I feel there should be a distinction between group matches and knockout, one off games in European matches. Plzen/Qarabag fits my bill. Agree about the prospects in the Red Star match but I tend to avoid English refs abroad (perhaps wrongly). Good luck with the "middle" and the header🤞 .
  5. Amongst the inevitable rotation that Steven Gerrard will employ against Bolton I hope he will give Ludwig Augustsson a chance at left wing back (must be an improvement on Lucas Digne in my humble view😛 ). The Swedish international has a decent pedigree and has scored a few decent goals from free kicks in his time. If he does play, Augustsson could be worth a small bet at 13/1 to score or a cheap buy of his goal minutes at 3 with Sporting Index.
  6. With no goals in the first leg Plzen and Qarabag will both be all guns blazing to qualify for the lucrative stages. Likely to be another close affair which should test the Portuguese referee, Artur Dias Soares. When in charge of UEFA competition games, this referee has had some high bookings counts. In his last 9 Euro games he has hit 100 or more 4 times and also had make-ups of 75 and 90. Qarabag in particular have shown that they can rack up plenty of bookings points. Rather than play fixed odds, I've had a buy of bookings at 56 with Sporting Index.
  7. Well done, Alex and very unlucky, Harry. No Liverpool player looked like scoring last night. The midfield of Henderson, Milner and Elliott was always going to struggle to be creative so Salah had only scraps and never really looked like feeding off any of them. Gomez and Firmino were very poor and on the night Liverpool looked bang average. At least Michael Oliver dished out 3 yellow for United😀 .
  8. In each of their games so far Man Utd have collected 4 yellow cards. Surely against the old foe in front of a baying crowd the United players will be ultra-determined this evening (won't they😛). Even with Michael Oliver in charge of the whistle I expect United to pick up a few cards. Over 2.5 Man Utd cards is worth a bet for me at evens (Bet 365).
  9. If you look at the respective teamsheets of Bournemouth and Villa this afternoon I suspect there would not be a single Bournemouth player that would warrant a place in Villa's team, ..............yet this is Villa, and Bournemouth are bound to be at 110% for their latest Premiership debut. I'm sure Villa will be all out for 3 points and will at no stage settle for a draw. They will have Cash and Digne (replacement last January for Targett, although Augustinsson is an interesting recruit) bombing forward. I anticipate Villa will have the majority of possession and have bought their corners squared at 42 with Sporting Index. Whilst not confident that Villa will find the net as often as their likely possession should warrant, I think there is a chance they score 3 or 4 goals so have bought their goal rush at 18 (Sporting Index).
  10. Actually have decided to back Lena Oberdorf to be booked (11/10 bet 365). Perhaps one or two words in the referee's ear during HT.
  11. Unlucky - she should have scored with her head in that 1st half and then shot over from a decent pull-back.. Personally from what I've witnessed in this tournament Russo is now a far better centre forward and is very unlucky not to be first choice. So unlucky about Popp getting injured in the warm up, Harry. Referee is terribly inconsistent. She missed a couple of definite yellows against the Germans and then books Stanway for something less naughty. Tempting to go in on bookings but will desist.
  12. For a bit of interest I've gone with Wendie Renard to break her goal-scoring duck in this tournament. I anticipate that France will be trailing and will have to be "do or die" in the last 15 minutes or so. Renard is bound to be up for any corners or free kicks. It's notable that Spreadex goal minutes for Renard are 6-9 whereas Sporting Index are only 3-6. So a small buy of Wendie Renard's goal minutes at 6.
  13. For a bit of interest I've had a bet on Spain corners. England have hardly been put under any defensive pressure so far in the tournament whereas Spain have racked up 32 corners in their group matches. Admittedly 17 were against Finland but they still notched up 6 and 9 against Germany and Denmark respectively. Provided Spain are chasing the game, there could be a chance of a few corners being conceded by England. I have backed over 6.5 Spain corners at 3/1 (skybet).
  14. Never bothered to look on the Exchange - Stanway and Bronze better prices there😧 .
  15. There has been a lot of hype about Ellen White being on the cusp of becoming England's all time leading goalscorer - by getting ahead of Wayne Rooney. She needs 1 goal to equal Rooney's 53 goals. It's possible there will be every effort from her team mates for White to score twice and then be subbed to preserve her for the harder games ahead. I was about to press the button on White to score a brace at 9/4 with skybet when they cut to 13/8. I saw 7/4 with Coral (Bet 365 only 4/5). I hate missing out on a price so am swerving now. I can see the Northern Ireland defence conceding a penalty or two (especially with Esther Straubli with the whistle) so have backed Georgia Stanway to score at 5/4 and also to score a brace at 7/1 (skybet). Stanway scored twice in England's recent 5-0 beating of NI and neither were penalties. I also expect Lucy Bronze to be advanced for much of the game and reckon 4/1 for her to score is a bit of value. Given the identity of the referee and NI inevitably having minimal possession and making some tired challenges, I have bought NI bookings at 13 (SX) and their multi bookings at 43 (SX). [Will actually be watching the rugby league so will check losses😎 on the women's footie afterwards].
  16. Only saw the last 10 minutes or so when it was obvious the Venezuelan ref was not remotely interested in troubling to reach into her pocket despite a couple of agricultural hacks from the N Irish team. Total opposite of Swiss referee Esther Straubli who showed yellow and a red for most innocuous stuff. Definitely a market to play for interest with small stakes.
  17. With Riem Hussein officiating in the England v Norway game this evening I've had to have a small bet on cross-bookings with a buy at 180 (SX). I'm not really convinced this fixture will need much disciplinary intervention so only a small unit stake of 12p. I'm keener on a bet on Northern Ireland in their make or break match against Austria. For some reason in these European championships there is a Venezuelan referee who is pretty card happy in her domestic leagues but seems more restrained on the international front. However in this fixture Emi Caldera Barrera may be compelled to show a yellow or three. Generally the Austrians seem very well disciplined and receive few cards. I've gone with over 1.5 Northern Ireland cards at 11/8 with Bet 365.
  18. Could be worth a goalscorer bet on France skipper and centre back, Wendie Renard, for this evening's clash with Italy. Both for Lyon and the national team Renard is a regular scorer and has actually scored 8 times in 9 appearances for France in 2021 and 2022. Renard is 4/1 to score (skybet), 33/1 to score 2 or more (Coral, Hills, skybet) and 400/1 (Hills) a hat-trick.
  19. It has to be a better way than simply comparing all male jockey rides with all female jockey rides.
  20. The fairest way to analyse this would be to compare female jockeys on favourites with male jockeys on favourites.
  21. Annoying that the game I quoted as most favourable had a multis make up of 432 despite being played on a quasi-paddy field, when the other Sydney match (Bulldogs v Sharks) made up at only 144. The weather is not relenting tomorrow so I'm also having a crack at the game at Wollongong between Dragons and Raiders. I've backed under 37.5 match points at evens (skybet) and split stakes with sells of multi-points at 317 (SPIN) and cross-points at 316 (SX). With neither side yet reaching 300 points scored for the season to date, hopefully the terrible weather will mean they have to wait another two or three games to reach that milestone.
  22. It's worth checking out the weather around Sydney over the weekend. Forecast for torrential rain and very high winds. Should point to some unders bets in the NRL. The one I favour is Rabbitohs v Eels at the Accor Stadium which kicks off at 5.35 Aussie time to coincide with the worst of the weather. I've sold match multi-points at 376 (SX). SPIN only 2 points lower at 374. [Pity the RU International is in Perth].
  23. Definitely keep an eye open for our old friend Riem Hussein.
  24. Clash of the top 2 teams in the Championship on Premier Sports TV this evening with Leigh hosting Featherstone Rovers. Although the home side are favourites, I reckon there must be value in Fev's half-back, Ryley Jacks to score a try. In 8 games since the start of April Jacks has only failed to touch down in one of them and has amassed 13 tries, including two hat-tricks and two braces. Obviously he's up against the toughest opponents this evening but for me is still worth a bet to score at 7/2 (Hills, Bet 365).
  25. On current form it seems a bit of an insult that Argjir are 25/1 (Hills, Ladbrokes) to win away at Vikingur (3.00 today).
