  1. Putting floods, plague and bankruptcies to one side; it is still going to be a more compact season than usual due to the late start. Have the non-league powers that be done anything to mitigate hefty fixture backlogs in the second half of the campaign? Suspending one of the non-league cups for a season for example? Edit: Actually am I talking rubbish? Will the season finish later than usual anyway?
  2. We should do, I keep expecting Liverpool to get gassed out because of the way they play but Klopp and his team manage to condition their players in such a way that they keep suprising us, maybe waning motivation will be the bigger factor in any potential decline there. I expect City to be strong this year but I agree with you that we should see a closer battle within the big 6.
  3. An early selection for me: w/o Manchester City & Liverpool: Tottenham Hotspur @ 12.00 Skybet To clarify; this is the premier league winner without Man City & Liverpool market. I simply do not understand why there is such a big price discrepancy between Chelsea & Man Utd at 2.75 on the one hand and Tottenham at 12.00 on the other?!?! Chelsea in my view are favourites to finish 3rd (or perhaps higher) with their embarrassment of riches playing squad and probably the best young manager in Frank Lampard. However, it remains to be seen that the young squad will gel quickly and it's hard to expect consistency when you have a team full of young players. Fernandes was such a key signing for Utd last year but I still feel some of their other talented players are mentally weak. Whether or not Solksjaer can mould his talent pool into a confident and consistent team of winners remains to be seen. Arteta is another talented young manager at Arsenal and he did a fantastic job to land them the FA Cup last season. For me their defence is still questionable, I know they have signed the two lads from Ligue 1 but they will take time to bed in. I also think the team is heavily reliant on Aubameyang and without him I can't really consider the Gunners to be on the same level as the other teams mentioned. I think their price of 11.00 in this market is a fair reflection of where they're currently at. Which brings me to Tottenham. It's true that Chelsea & Utd finished 7pts above Tottenham last season, but heading into 2020/2021 Mourinho will have a full pre-season with his team and has already begun to bring in additions which will add some much needed steel and leadership to his Tottenham side. I still rate Mourinho as a manager, he's better than Solksjaer at any rate and I don't really see Man Utd's squad being any better than Tottenham's overall (although Utd's superior purchasing power is still a concern). In my view Tottenham at 12.00 for this market is pretty ridiculous and can't really be ignored as a value bet. It's very hard to predict who will win EPL excluding City & Liverpool but the price between Tottenham and Chelsea / Utd should be much closer.
  4. Good news for Serie A fans in UK and Ireland next season:
  5. Hopefully this table is correct @DrO, I did a custom one and added some footnotes: * AC Milan undefeated, coach Stefano Pioli confirmed as manager for next season and quite right to. Romagnoli / Kjaer centre-back partnership doing very well. * Fiorentina defence looking very solid, Iachini confirmed as coach for next season and quite right to. * The sword of damocles was looming above Fonseca but he changes the system to suit his players and the 3-4-2-1 module helps Roma finish the campaign strongly. * Cagliari showed little improvement under Walter Zenga, he will be replaced by Eusebio Di Francesco for the 2020/2021 campaign. * Lecce fought to the end and it will be interesting to see where coach Fabio Liverani goes next, he has shown promise with his efforts in the past couple of seasons.
  6. Thanks once again @Darran for your valiant efforts this season. Match betting was very good and you are clearly beating the market consistently. As for the 2019/2020 ante-post, it was too bizarre for words. The national league was almost upside down with the likes of Woking flourishing and Fylde floundering, we cannot really legislate for such things and will just have to sit back and laugh. Having such a big drought in ante-post this year just makes me think we're due to run much better in future. Credit to Bet365 who voided non-league ante-post selections due to the season being curtailed. Not all operators were so generous, I won't name names but they know who they are.
  7. It maybe because first choice central midfielders Fleck and Lundstram are unavailable for Sheffield Utd here. However, I do think the match odds are still a bit silly for this game all things considered. You've also got to bear in mind that Wolves seem to be the darlings of the betting markets regardless of situation. If Sheffield Utd were at full strength for this game and the silly prices remained I would probably take Sheffield +0.25 AH at odds against here as a value bet. As things stand I don't know whether or not I can be bothered to get involved as Fleck and Lundstram are kinda important, I don't want to put you off though, if you have a strong feeling to fade Wolves here then I wish you luck.
