  1. Live Football Chat

    Yeah, I didn't expect a 0-0 but I had a feeling we would make it difficult for them. I am surprised we came away with a point though given Warnock gave two youth players their debuts in Harris and Meite. Harris is highly rated but Meite does not have many admirers within our fan base. We were hit by a squad virus so just happy with a point. If Wigan are still alive and fighting after today then I would not want to be their opposition next game.
  2. Weekend > Apr 22nd & 23rd

    A good win but it's a shame for you guys that Hull also secured an impressive win. That's the swings and roundabouts of a relegation battle. @Sir Puntalot, I think BTTS is a great shout with the Liverpool game. I am a bit surprised that the odds are available that long. I know 1.80 isn't exactly a bargain but I thought it would be offered closer to 1.60. I think either the BTTS or over 2.5 goals is a must. I also think Liverpool should win.
  3. China Super League > Apr 21st - 23rd

    @liongjoycewang, you are now our resident China Super League expert. Would you care to give us your opinions on these games please? @vasilli07, @zemo91, @clubgowi, @gogetta, @jamiedavies02, @lockscombi, @Mobster, @winnerwinner, and @WinningAdvice, any of you guys fancy taking a punt on this league yet?
  4. Greece Super League 2016/17

    Please post all Greece Super League-related content in here. I will merge all previous posts to tidy up this section over the next few days. I appreciate there are only two rounds left but it will help to keep this section a bit tidier for the next couple of weeks and we can then start afresh next season. 
  5. Weekend > Apr 20th - 22nd

    @addpea, @GazBlades, @Gidds, @tictok, @allthethings, @Tanktop, @amtopm, @sammydubs, @the bastardian, @bromsgrovegreen, @Woodgate, @Carl Iles, @dawwe92, @Kenton Schweppes, @TastesLikeTuna, @atish29, @sammummery, @MuineBheag, @Bronxie and @misky, what are you looking to back here? Apologies for the odds going up a bit later. Only the National League, National League North, and National League South odds had been unavailable initially.
  6. UK Weekend > Apr 21st - 24th

    If that was on a game of Football Manager we'd all be saying it was scripted! Pritchard is a quality player. Norwich's squad overall should be challenging for automatic promotion. I had them tipped as a top 6 finisher before the season started. In fact, I think I had them and Newcastle as top two. Anyway, it'll be interesting to see how that result affects Newcastle's mentality. Easy to forget they still haven't sealed promotion yet. @Kenton Schweppes, what's the mood amongst Huddersfield fans like at the moment? I should point out, Kenton was adamant before the season started that the Terriers would be in the mix. I tipped them to struggle and I am happy to admit I have been proven wrong. I've got a soft spot for Huddersfield after they, along with Alloa, were one of the first clubs I managed on the old Championship Manager games. In the days of Andy Booth, Iffy Onuora, and Jon Dyson!
  7. Club Rugby Weekend > Apr 22nd & 23rd

    Only a few club rugby fixtures up this weekend. @harry_rag, you've been on the silence for a couple of weeks. Any tips for these games?
  8. Weekend > Apr 22nd & 23rd

    Yeah, on Thursday night this fixture immediately came to mind. The courageous part of me wants to back Burnley to win but I think Manchester United have enough to take something. Ibrahimovic will simply be replaced by Rashford who is in red hot form right now. Rashford to score any time and United to win is what I am tempted by but still think the odds on Burnley are too good to ignore. I'm torn. Might just stick with Rashford to score. Possibly BTTS.
  9. A-League > Apr 21st - 23rd

    Only the two games this weekend @vasilli07. I assume this is because of the AFC Cup? What are you thinking here? Backing the two home wins?
  10. Champions League > May 2nd & 3rd

    The draw for the semi finals of the 2016/17 Champions League have taken place and the odds are up! The first legs take place on Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd May but the odds haven't updated to show that yet. What are we thinking for these two matches then guys?  @vasilli07, @Icongene, @KikoCy, @DrBetter, @LePapo, @Duuc, @DrO, @immortal--, @Notorious, @betcatalog, @KingSoccertips, @discipline, @Pep004, @andrewcalo, @HastGill1, @ElPrincipito007, @salmonman, @DW_United, @allthethings, and @WinningAdvice.  
  11. Italian Super Cup > Dec 23rd

    It is the Italian Super Cup this Friday night. Obviously, Juventus are the firm favourites but I think there could be profit in the player markets. What do you guys think? @sajtion, @WinningAdvice, @betcatalog, @bet man, @1907zico, @Mauricius, @Neubs, @vasilli07, and @scorerthief.
  12. Europa League > Apr 20th

    The second legs of the Europa League Quarter Finals take place this week and the odds are all over the place here with a few shock results in the last matches. We had a fair few of you get some bang on but others were quite far off. The less said about my Manchester United bet the better really!   Besiktas head into their home leg against Lyon 2-1 down on aggregate. They did well to get the away goal and it will be interesting to see how Lyon's players cope in such an intimidating atmosphere after their sour experience at Bastia over the weekend. Will their nerves be too much? The 2.60 on Besiktas to win on the night is very tempting indeed. Celta Vigo managed to get a 3-2 win at home to Genk in the first leg but the two away goals really breathe hope into this tie for the Belgian side. At 2.62 it would be foolish to rule out backing Genk to win. Celta are a Jekyll and Hyde side and if they are off their best then Genk could well seal the win on the night and on aggregate. Manchester United were denied an impressive away win in the first leg. It gives Anderlecht hope that they can still win this tie. They are a vastly underrated side with some great young talent and this game is far from done for United. However, have they turned a corner with that controlled win over Chelsea? The odds on a home win seem dangerously low. If Anderlecht can score then United will need to score twice to avoid the tie going to extra time. That's something they have only managed to do once in their last five competitive home games. Ajax are in the driving seat in their tie against Schalke after a dominant 2-0 win at home. It is far from done and dusted but I think the Dutch side with their array of young talent should see this through. Schalke could well win on the night but Ajax will be disappointed if they let a two goal lead slip. The only question is whether they have enough experience in their side to pull what is needed off? @delfino, @KikoCy, @giraldi, @Icongene, @dogmeister, @rangers234, @ElPrincipito007, @KingSoccertips, @vasilli07, @betcatalog, @immortal--, @DW_United, @discipline, @WinningAdvice, and @CloughandTaylor, interested to hear what you guys have to say on these games given your previous involvement in the chat on this competition.
  13. Europa League > May 4th

    The draw for the semi finals of the 2016/17 Europa League took place today. We have two very tasty ties coming up at the start of next month. The Premier League has its solitary representative in European competition in Manchester United. Can they go all the way? Listed as favourites away to a very difficult Celta Vigo side. Hmm. What do we all think for these two games?  @delfino, @KikoCy, @giraldi, @Icongene, @dogmeister, @rangers234, @ElPrincipito007, @KingSoccertips, @vasilli07, @betcatalog, @immortal--, @DW_United, @discipline, @WinningAdvice, and @CloughandTaylor.
  14. A bit of a mixed weekend here. I know it says Super League XXII but I've also thrown in the two Challenge Cup games that are scheduled this weekend. @harry_rag, what are your thoughts on these games?
  15. Champions League > Apr 18th & 19th

    The second legs of the Champions League Quarter Finals are this week. Leicester will be looking to overturn a narrow 1-0 deficit against Atletico Madrid. They have already managed to pull off a one goal switch around against a La Liga side in the knockout stages so can they do it again? Is 3.80 a price that could tempt you? Real Madrid are in the driving seat against Bayern Munich going into the home leg. It seems amazing that Zinedine Zidane's side came away from the Allianz Arena with a win and are still priced at 2.37 to win the game on their own patch. Are you with the bookies and expecting a Bayern Munich resurgence? Or is it too tough of an ask? Barcelona have left themselves with a mountain to climb once again after falling to a 3-0 defeat away to Juventus in the first leg. Can they pull off the impossible once more or have they run out of luck? The bookies are backing them to at least get the win at 1.53 but can they claw a victory over two legs from this desperate position? Monaco took full advantage of Borussia Dortmund's very sad circumstances last week. Personally, I'm amazed the game was even allowed to go ahead the following day. It should have been postponed for further due to extenuating and understandable circumstances... but you know UEFA, they have their draws and schedules to keep! I think I speak for everyone when I say, and this is nothing against Monaco, that Dortmund pull this one back from the brink. @vasilli07, @Icongene, @KikoCy, @DrBetter, @LePapo, @Duuc, @DrO, @immortal--, @Notorious, @betcatalog, @KingSoccertips, @discipline, @Pep004, @andrewcalo, @HastGill1, @ElPrincipito007, @salmonman, @DW_United, @allthethings, and @WinningAdvice, what do you guys all think here?
  16. A-League > Apr 21st - 23rd

    Do you know what, I totally forgot about that! I cannot believe the season has gone by so fast! Where has the time gone?!
  17. PDC Premier League 2017

    @Fader, what are you thinking this week mate? I'm all over the place. Thoughts have been a bit off the mark with some surprising results over the past few weeks. Hoping for some consistency this week!
  18. PDC Premier League 2017

    The 2017 PDC Premier League kicks off tonight and there are a host of matches lined up for the first night of action. I have listed the outright odds before the competition starts. Are any of you backing someone other than MVG to take the title? He's obviously flying after his PDC World Championship title win but would it be naive to rule out Gary Anderson at 5.50 or Peter Wright at 11.00? Will Phil Taylor's confirmed impending retirement see him improve his game? Here are the matches tonight, along with the odds. Interested to hear the thoughts of contributors to this forum such as @Fader, @owenclass, @Mullahoran, @bet man, @WiseManRav, @Cyrus69, @mcsilks, and @discipline.
