The reason I'm backing Lichtenstein is because

1. One of their club sides beat Sevco


Progres were Luxembourgian I think...

Fuck you're right. Knew it began with L. From some wee country I've never been to, and probably couldn't locate on a map. But reason 4 will bring it home. Never betted on an international friendly before. And probably never will again after the 0-0 tonight.

you're lucky so I'm having some of that  :thumbsup:

Aye, nae giving up the day job just yet.

Looked at Wigan and thought the stuffing may have been knocked out of them by the FA Cup defeat at the weekend but time will tell. 

International friendlies are a bloody minefield though.  Nothing on the whole card that I looked at and thought that's a cert.

After 3 bets: -

BB 67%, RS 67%

33% NOD.

Balance (between us) = -35p

Saturday next.

Apologies RS, was too bold with that call.

Got a couple of free bets so have put two trebles on for the golf today:

Grace to beat  B Watson
Cabrera Bello to beat Kodaira
Aphibarnrat to beat Reavie.  returns just under 30 quid

Pieters to beat Final
Fleetwood to beat Poulter
Oosthuizen to beat Duffner. returns 27 quid.

Neither likely to come in but I'm loaded with the flu so gives me more interest/something to shout at the tv about.

No apologies required nor due. It was a good pick at a good price.

I've found a couple of lovely nailed on teams for Saturday already. I got the same price for them as I got for Berliner AK 07 tonight, currently 2-0 up away from home, a team I'd never heard of and I lived in Deutschland for six years! Got KFC Uerdingen 05, another team I've never heard of, in a couple of trebles with them, 1-0 up already after 16 minutes   8)

Kiriakov,
             January 29th at Paddy Power I put £12.50 e/w on Ronnie O'Sullivan (7/1) 1/2 odds 1-2 to win World Championships.

Aye, that's better value Seabass.  Higgins is the only guy that disna seem to be scared of him.  I would expect one of the two of those to win it but it's a pretty grueling tournament, mentally, over two weeks so who knows?

Kiriakov, a cheeky fiver on O'Sullivan to beat Ding 6-3 (9/2) tonight!!!!! 

I had him £12.50 e/w (8/1) 1/2 odds 1-2 both years he won World's in 2012 and 2013.  RIDICULOUS PRICE second year after he took 12 months out out and destroyed field.  Had him twice out of last three years he won Masters in 2014 and 2016 against Selby and Hawkins again both (7/2) which is still cracking value for a player of his ability.  Not sure why we didn't have the guy when playing Perry 2017.

Here's a good treble for you today BB

Casey, Poulter and Oosthuizen to win their matches at combined odds of just over 4/1.  I'm going for one of Seabass' cheeky fivers on that.  :thumbsup:

Betting on golf matchplay for a single bet even is like shooting into a barrel of fish. Anybody can beat anybody in this format, as Uihlein and others proved yesterday. My advice is NOT to bet on this format, not with any serious dough anyway.

I don't understand your post?

The only thing I am getting is that you may be trying to be a smart arse about something?

My apologies if I misinterpreted and that you were just going down the humour line, which also escaped me?

My pick for Saturday will be Wigan away to Bury.

Tomorrow I'm going for a £5 double on Shrewsbury and Coventry.  Potential return for 2 home wins of £16.19.

£10 on it B.B.  Morton 1/3 & Wigan 7/10.

My mate picked Ayr for our double and I added Wigan and he picked Coventry for our Quad.

Lot of great minds thinking alike here  :thumbsup:
