FOOTBALL’S a funny old game right enough. I thought I was sitting through another 0-0 draw with Rangers v Celtic before what I feared would be scoreless encounter at Chelsea.
Celtic netted late and my tip Moussa Dembele scored so I settled down expecting nothing to happen at Stamford Bridge only for Jose Mourinho to park the bus – but it was a mini bus that covered nothing and allowed the Blues to batter them 4-0.
United were dire but I had to laugh at the early goal conceded after putting just under 1pt on no scorer. As I said earlier I’d happily give away £9 to see a game full of goals rather than what Liverpool-Man United put on the other day.
That “speculative” bet was my only loser. My second Super Single was a winner thanks to Nice and the 4-1 both to score treble landed thanks to games at Feyenoord, Red Bull Leipzig and Real Madrid.
A last-gasp winner by Villarreal prevented the 12-5 fourfold from bombing at the first hurdle and they were followed in by Roma and Real Madrid to score 2+ and Benfica to win.
It’s been a decent couple of days and I should end the month in profit as I did in September.
Monday’s pretty quiet ahead of a hectic midweek although we do have Bury v Bolton in English League One and check out HullShaker’s thoughts on the game – although maybe you should give it a miss if you’re a Bolton fan.
I didn’t realise how big a derby it was, possibly because it has been played for 17 years. On current form you’d take Bolton who have won their last three away while Bury have been shaken by a run of five defeats. However, we know form goes out of the window in these type of games and HullShaker likes the look of goals and cards.
Braga play Chaves in Portugal and Cork face Wexford in Ireland but elsewhere it’s mostly about lower-league games. Dundalk’s victory on Sunday night clinched the title so second-placed Cork have nothing to play for while Wexford have a chance of climbing out of the relegation play-off if they win their final two games.
I’m not sure how those scenarios will affect the result but it’s worth bearing in mind – as is the fact Dundalk are certain to rest players at St Patrick’s on Tuesday after nine games in 25 days.
Stephen Kenny’s squad have been tested to the limit by their Europa League campaign and they’ve done well to retain their crown while doing their league proud in Europe.
Again team news is key but St Pat’s beat Cork 3-1 in their last home outing and I said I was happy to risk 1pt on a Super Single at 21-4 with Stan James. I wasn’t backingit until seeing some team news but either the 21-4 was wrong on oddschecker or it had been put up before the Dundalk game.
Best price I can see now is 7-4 with Stan James so I’m assuming 21-4 wasn’t available for long or at all. The 7-4 could still be value but without seeing line-ups I wouldn’t back it so I’ll delete the Super Single.
I’ll have a look at stats and team news before deciding to post any tips for Monday.
