Bad news! The football season is nearly over! A few championship, promotion and relegation issues have been decided already, but in the couple of weeks remaining in the divisional races there’s still a lot for many teams to play for. There are still plenty of betting opportunities for sport betting aficionados too! Here are a […]
Betting Bad Part 11: Carlisle cock-up and a Derby derby
After a couple of weeks absence due to a vacation, I can confirm that Betting Bad is back, and hopefully better than before! Before my little mid season jaunt to America, I had written ten instalments of this soon-to-be world famous series. Of these ten instalments, only one provided a winner, way back on episode […]
Betting Bad Part 10: Infuriating Internationals
I love international football. The World Cup is my one true love in life, and when the football calendar is broken up due to qualification processes, I have no issue at all. What really grinds my gears is this international break. Friendlies are a waste of time. They are full of top players conveniently picking […]
Betting Bad Part 9: Forget the horses
Welcome back ladies and gentlemen, to another edition of Betting Bad, the world renowned (maybe) series where the premise is simple – you don’t follow my Betting tips, you use them to work out who you are going to avoid betting on! I have written eight instalments of this series since the turn of the […]
Betting Bad Part 8: You’d be a Fool-ham to follow these bets!
Last week hurt me. If I was just a casual punter I would not have bet at all, but I made a commitment to you, valued reader, to continue my betting series in a bid to help you know who to avoid in your own accumulation selections. But why did I wish I hadn’t bet? […]
Betting Bad Part 7: Costly Cash Out Commitment
One of my cardinal rules of this betting series is that we absolutely do not cash out. It doesn’t reflect the purity of a good bet and leads to indecision and stress. That being said, if I had cashed out last weekend on the 80th minute mark, I’d have turned my £5 bet into round […]
The National Football Museum: A Journey From Robbie Savage To Pelé
One week ago, on a bright and chilly morning in Manchester, I found myself walking through the city centre. I didn’t know where to go or what to see, my usual overloading of Trip Advisor and Lonely Planet having evaded me on this trip. I had no time to do a stadium tour of Old […]
Betting Bad Part 6: Rooting against Rochdale
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner! Five attempts and a stupid chunk of money have been wasted through weeks 1-4, but the taste of sweet vindication was enjoyed by myself with last week’s victory. I will be honest, I so nearly cashed out, accepting a couple of pound loss, but I withheld, mainly because […]
Betting Bad Part 5: All away days
Good morning, afternoon and evening to you all, and welcome to another addition of my substandard series – Betting Bad. To all you regular readers, I’m sure you know the drill. To all the newbies, here’s a quick refresher. Basically, I am cursed. I have a betting curse. The last accumulator that I won which […]
Betting Bad Part 4
Well, here we go again. Lord knows I could do with a win this week. It’s been three weeks that I have been writing this series and I am yet to win. On one hand, I am happy, because it would be fairly bizarre to run an ironic betting account giving tips that I am […]
Modern Football Is Good-ish: Gamesmanship or Cheating?
An Introduction Those who know me on a personal level know that my opinions on many things don’t tend to go along with the majority. Some say I’m just wired differently, some think it’s a subconscious reflex just to naturally be ‘contrary’. Through this occasional feature I hope to provoke some discussion by laying out […]
