  1. I see he's put the club up for sale now and is saying he won't be putting any more money in. The blokes a moron. Could be quite a few players leaving if that's the case, you can't trust anything the bloke says mind..
  2. You definitely got the best odds on Billericay! Hold no value now imo with the possibility of the owner going bankrupt/losing interest mid-season..certainly will happen at some point, just a question of when. Can see him losing interest when attendances don't increase as he expects them to, no way they can continue as they are with an owner with such a dodgy financial history. Great play at odds you got them for, expect the wheels to fall off when they get to the Conference and he cant afford to spend his way out of it.
  3. Anyone know when Racing Post season preview is released?
  4. Thinking of Forest and Stoke outright. Stoke have the best squad in the league by a mile, bit short up front but a lot of players who could do a job in the Prem. Forest are following the Wolves blueprint getting in promising Portuguese youngsters! Not the same sort of arrangement Wolves had with Mendes but they have money behind them and signing £15m midfielders is serious business. Grabban will get 15-20 goals minimum..they are a long shot but the odds reflect that. Bet big on Middlesborough last season and they were poor most of the season, never thought they would go up, squad has
  5. All Betfair. Thomas Muller 34/1 - I'm not sure Werner will start games but Muller certainly will and looks a decent price as he is consistently one of the top scorers for Germany and they should get to the semis at least. Form has been better for Bayern this season and he top scored in 2010 and second in 2014. Griezmann 14/1 Top goal scorer at Euro 2016 and in the form of his life currently. Takes penalties and playing for one of the favourites. No brainer. Lukaku 20/1 They have an easy group which they should win and are an attacking side with a manager who can't set his team u
  6. Just read this and was going to post it up, should have known you would be all over it..Got 2.40 for the -1 handicap with betfred.
  7. I don't bet the amounts I used to a couple of years ago..Brexit finished me off .. Do enjoy season long bets though as it gives you teams to follow throughout the season, only ever do them as singles. Think it's hard enough predicting one outcome let alone two or more.. I've got Luton to go up, think there's very little chance of them winning the league, really stumbling over the line, due to inconsistency of sides around them they should get enough points to go up. My bets on Burnley and Brighton to get relegated not looking too strong though.. Took Bayern and Barca to win the C
  8. Ashford to beat Hastings in the trophy worth a play, Hastings playing poorly the manager has said he is annoyed with the more experienced players (of which there aren't many) and he's going to play even more of the academy youngsters, already operating on a reduced budget this season with a totally new XI with all the good players leaving. Don't know anything about Ashord but they won their last match 10-0 in the league and sit in the top 4 at a similar level of football. Don't know if anyone is pricing it up other than betvictor but they have Ash at 2.38. I'll be there only because you c
  9. I'm going to have a play on Napoli @ 2/1 (without Juventus). Juve will most likely win the league, Bonucci transfer is bizarre but they have massive strength in depth even with him leaving Chiellini/Rugani/Barzagli/Benatia is better than anyone else in the league can offer. Add Bernardeschi going forward and no-one is going to catch them.. Roma will challenge and fall short as usual, lost 3 key players who haven't been replaced, heavily reliant on Dzeko to score 25-30 to keep them in the hunt. Napoli score goals for fun and look a good price for second to me, no losses of any signifi
  10. Billericay have signed Jermaine Pennant and Kevin Foley! Together with Jamie O'Hara and Paul Konchesky who were signed in the summer..bonkers signings for Ryman Prem level, hundreds of Premier League appearances between that lot.
  11. Are Billericay really 1.8 shots for the Ryman Prem!? I see the owner has a wage budget of 25k a week (some other clubs in the league work on 2.5k) and they are signing tons of players from higher league clubs..the owner rubs people up the wrong way with some of his statements by the looks of it ('best non-league club in the world' apparently) but he will see anything other than the title as failure with the kind of money he's putting in. Was looking at Margate as they have signed 3 of Hastings best players (65 goals between them last season) and thought at 17 they might be worth a punt an
  12. Long time no speak..been a while. PSG to score looks a must tonight – although the odds are garbage now so prob in-play. Barca aren’t playing a Spanish minnow tonight, PSG are much better when playing sides that attack them – see their struggles against sides that put 11 behind the ball – Di Maria/Moura/Draxler are all rapid and they will create chances on the counter. I couldn’t confidently predict an outcome in the game but talk of Barca going through sounds fanciful to me, they haven’t convinced me this season and beating sides like Celta Vigo 5-0 doesn’t mean anything. PSG are a bette
  13. Lech have just changed coach I believe which might be the reason for price rise, although it doesn't change anything for them league is the priority. Fiorentina will change most of their starting XI according to reports, Rossi might well get a start for them up front which will be interesting. As a general rule I avoid the sub 1.4 sides in the Europa League..
  14. I agree got this too..although I'm holding out for better odds in-play, which generally ends in disaster.. Astana have only named 4 subs..has that happened before in a CL group game!?
  15. Also taken PSG to win at 2.5 and a bigger bet DNB at 1.7-1.78 (betfair)..PSG have been very solid at home for years and Real haven't been playing well for a while, it looks 50/50 to me who wins that group but PSG are far stronger at home than away so will look to make this game count. Regarding Madrid's injuries, Benzema and Modric might play - expect Ramos to start. Given that Benz and Mod have muscular injuries it would be a risk to start them but it wouldn't surprise me to see Benz start. Given the way they play James is a bigger miss than Bale. PSG rested a number of players at the weekend
  16. Astana are resting players for the game against Atletico as they have an important league game at the weekend. This is from Marca; "A visit to Calderón is never peaceful. Intensity combat Atletico played four days before a title is not the recommended recipe. Or at least, he must have thought Stanimir Stoilov, coach of Astana, aware that the Champions League is far from the war around. Given the position to prioritize, it is clear, the Kazakh league. Therefore, both the squad and the eleven line up, there are several absences regarding the 12 players who faced Benfica and Galatasaray. Among t
  17. Hardly going to say 'nah, don't want him he's shi*e!' are they! .. As for him being overrated by everyone in England, I don't think he is really. There was an argument about 6-7 years ago as to whether he was world class / could be considered world class and most agreed he probably wasn't but could be if his game continued to progress at the current rate..that came and went and he has been regressing for a few years now, probably his worst season to date for United isn't it? His goal numbers have remained pretty consistent to be fair over the years but his best years have certainly been and go
  18. Georgia v Gibraltar Gibraltar will lose this game, doubt if Georgia will score more than 4 though, defensive sides struggle to attack on masse but the Gibraltar defence - especially the goalkeeper - are of poor standard and the worst in this competition. They are decent going forward though and will attack at every opportunity - another reason they have conceded so many goals in this comp, they try to score unlike San Marino and Andorra (away at least) who just sit in and press in their defensive third. Gibraltar have scored against Scotland and Poland away and very nearly against Ireland away
  19. Bottom line is Juve were miles away from any other Italian side last season. Napoli and Roma raised the bar for the odd game but couldn't do it for any extended period of time. Roma have improved their squad this season but haven't got the quality Juve have and Garcia is hopeless, Milan should be better than last year (not hard) but will probably take time to gel after changing most of the side. We wait to see how much the loss of world-class players like Tevez and Vidal affects Juve but they are still the side to beat..
  20. Slovan Bratislava should cover the handicap easily against UCD. The students did well to get through the last round despite getting battered in the return game - 41 shots on and off target I believe. Still they are made up of students and run by volunteers, Bratislava are a good outfit to bet on at this stage, decent attackers in Vittek and Priskin and pretty solid defensively. Its the best side UCD will ever have played and I don't expect them to leave without losing by 2 at the very least. Bratislava -1.5AH - 1.35 - bet365 - 10 Points Bratislava -2.0AH - 1.5 - bet365 - 8 Points Bratislava -
  21. I've had a couple of bets on KR at home to Rosenborg, Icelandic sides are getting better - like the International side - and they have very good youth development. KR are doing well in the league, so are Rosenborg to be fair, Rosenborg are one of those sides I never trust and away from home it wouldn't surprise me to see them struggle, more of a hunch than anything KR just look a big price. KR DNB - 5.3 - betfair - 2 Points KR +1.0AH - 1.975 - betfair - 2 Points
  22. Owners son Jack Sullivan tweeted that they will be putting a strong side out tonight. Most of their strikers are out though, team is likely to be something like this; Adrian; O’Brien, Tomkins, Reid, Cresswell; Poyet, Noble; Amalfitano, Nolan, Jarvis; Maiga/Lee Team will be more experienced than they played in the last round. Wouldn't expect West Ham to win by more than 3.
  23. Molde battered them as expected. Celtic were more dominant than I perhaps expected, don't know how the hell they only won by 2 should have been 4 at least, missed penalty near the end confirmed a pretty frustrating result.
  24. Bit of a minefield tonight..APOEL draw at 1.2, Midtjylland only win by 1 at 1.050, Ludogorets lose at 1.25, Maccabi Tel Aviv lose at 1.35 :(
