Latest standings (settled bets in brackets): Bruce £1,000, Al £1000

IT’S the start of game four in the tipster contest as we search for out fourth quarter-finalist.

Already David Smith, Mark Talbot and Cammy McDonald have battled through first-round ties and next up it’s Bruce Robertson, Edinburgh v Mohammed Ali of Blackburn. Bruce has taken the place of Halid Abdul of Uganda who was given a deadline to say he could take part but didn’t respond.

Al and Bruce’s contest started at 12am on Monday and they’ll play until midnight on Sunday. Already Al’s in with a few bets so it’s catch-up time for Bruce. Good luck to you both.

I’d remind players to post bets each day under the new thread that will be created after midnight. Stakes and Ladbrokes price must be included and if possible potential winnings. Also number your bets if you can as it makes it easier to keep track of them.

We need full names for this contest so anyone whose full name isn’t listed below could you please send it as a comment.

I posted up the rules previously but just to make sure everything is in order and easy to follow I’ve re-capped them below again.

  • All players will start their games with a mythical £1,000 betting fund and you can stake from £50 to £1,000 on any football bet provided Ladbrokes have priced it up.
  • Stakes have to be quoted as do all prices and they have to be Ladbrokes‘ odds. If you’re backing an accumulator please provide the individual odds as well the combined odds. Perms are not allowed. In-running bets are not allowed. And bets must only be on football.
  • You can bet on any football market provided by Ladbrokes but winnings won’t be allocated if no price is quoted. All tips must be posted before the start of the relevant event, for example by 2.59pm for a 3pm kick-off.
  • Each person must over the course of the week-long contest must place a minimum of 20 bets so the £1,000 stake is utilised. This is to prevent a contestant sitting on his pot. Minimum take £50.
  • Single or accumulated odds must be 1-4 or above.
  • You cannot copy exactly the same bet as your opponent. You can however include the same bet in an accumulator that includes at least one different selection. A bet can’t be cancelled once it’s posted unless part or all of the bet is a non-runner, for example a first-scorer pick doesn’t start or one game in an acumulator is postponed.
  • The winner will be the person who has accumulated most winnings, including stakes, by the deadline for the tie. But if one of the players loses his £1,000 pot before the deadline his opponent will be declared the winner even if he hasn’t placed 20 bets. However, if unsettled bets reduce his pot to zero it will be a draw with a tiebreaker required. Winnings can be staked so if your pot increases above £1,000 you have that money to play with. Stakes will be included in winning bets.
  • In the unlikely event of a draw in any of the tipping head to heads there will be a tiebreak contest to decide the winner.
  • All bets must have been settled by the close of the competition, i.e. by 23:59 on the Sunday evening otherwise the bet will be declared void.
  • In the event of any disputes Mr Fixit’s decision will be declare void.

Although there are prizes up for grabs please remember this is also a bit of fun.

      Al, welcome to the contest and good luck with your bets. Your Ugandan opponent hasn’t responded to our emails asking if he can confirm his participation. If he doesn’t confirm he’s playing by 3pm we’ll pick another entrant at random for you to play.

      • Milesey 5 years ago

        Can i play against AL ? 😉 😉 😉

        I don’t want any prizes and will give them away 😉 😉

        ha ha ha, i didn’t want to play, but i’d quite like ago against AL 😉 😉


        • Profile photo of Mr Fixit Author
          Mr Fixit 5 years ago

          Milesey, his real name is Mohammed Ali so he’ll knock you out. I believe admin have selected a previous entrant at random and he is now on standby to replace Halid.

          • Milesey 5 years ago

            no chance i’d Spank him out of this competition easy 😉 😉 NEVERMIND. I’ll get on a flight to Uganda and send you an email, by 3pm you say 😉

              Mr Fixit 5 years ago

              Milesey, we’re big in Uganda for some reason and Halid could raise the profile even further. If we do a mrfixitstips tour of Uganda we’ll book you in.

      Al, the Emmen game and two others in Holland have been postponed. Obviously bet 1 will be void. You can let bet 3 run as a single or give me another selection to make a double.

  6. MUZZA 5 years ago

    Mr F/Al,

    You are surely having a laugh with Mohammed Ali as his name? This had got to be an alias of some sort who does not wish to be known on the site?

    Ali Guy by any chance (I am not trying to cause a row or anything before anyone starts having a pop!!) ???

    Not ripping the competition, but no one has made any money, and now there is a bloke playing on his own 😉 😉 ha ha ha, WOW how interesting !


    • Seamus 5 years ago


      • Milesey 5 years ago

        seamus how do you manage to type one words on your own ? Damn i think i’d better change my opinion on you, you seem more educated then i first gave you credit for.


        • al 5 years ago

          Milesey you can have a go at Seamus now :-)

        • Seamus 5 years ago

          Thanks Milesey – appreciate that mate!

          Unfortunately I cannot say the same; my opinion of you still stays the same in regard to education.

          “one words” – should be singular not plural, my special little friend.

    • Profile photo of Mr Fixit Author
      Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      Milesey, you pulled out remember. And the bloke won’t be playing on his own, we’ve got a sub lined up. I think you’re the only person that’s put up negative comments about the contest so I won’t judge it on what you think.

  17. al 5 years ago

    I’m sure you have been to the bookmakers. So when you put a bet on a slip say on a horse.
    You have got that slip in your hand the horse falls on the last fence, your angry, you get the slip and screw it up and chuck it The bin well that you milesey ( the slip ):-) :-)

  18. al 5 years ago

    Anyway milesey I’m off
    No offence milesey just like Chris guy I love you:-) :-)

  19. Bryan 5 years ago

    I reckon Chris and Milesey should have a ‘friendly’ dual. Just the same format as this, over a one week period. It could be fun. :-)

    • Profile photo of Mr Fixit Author
      Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      Bryan, it would be interesting but not fun, well not for the administrators. I’d need a week off work to keep an eye on it.

  20. Milesey 5 years ago

    BET 1
    West Ham v TOTTENHAM

  22. Danny 5 years ago

    dont see any problems with that norweign bout going over 2.5 goals as a few of use will recall I like to stick an abundance of scandanavian football tips up when there seasons are in full swing norway finland sweeden denmark magic for btts and over 2.5

  23. joe 5 years ago

    Milesey why do you come on this website if its that rubbish ? Then your slagging off the competition which you tried to get back in only hours ago, its getting pretty. boring trying to read tips and have to scroll through petty digs at other people all the time.

    • Milesey 5 years ago

      hahaha, i said the competition isn’t very good not the site itself, is it really entertaining to watch someone play on their own ? really ? you need to get out more 😉


      • Profile photo of Mr Fixit Author
        Mr Fixit 5 years ago

        Milesey, how many times do we need say he’s not playing on his own. He’s playing Bruce Robertson.

      • Milesey 5 years ago

        ……and i come on here to help people out. thank you though for your comment 😉


    • Profile photo of Mr Fixit Author
      Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      Joe, you’re spot on. We’re trying to do some contests, some games and create a wee bit of interest for users of the site so I don’t know why Milesey has a go. He should stick to tipping because he’s quite good at it as the last comment confirms.

      • Milesey 5 years ago

        Where is the interest in watching people lose money ? that’s all i will say 😉


        • Profile photo of Mr Fixit Author
          Mr Fixit 5 years ago

          Milesey, I don’t think they set out to lose money and it’s just a game – no actually losing money anyway. You have to lighten up a bit with the contest.

          • Milesey 5 years ago

            haha, i’ll just ignore it, for if i could lose money and still win, then that would be great ! 😉


  24. Danny 5 years ago

    bet 4 not looking to clever Al that would have been my only worry that they are playing warm up matches for there seasons starting in the 3rd week of march

  25. joe 5 years ago

    Like mr fixit says stick to what your good at giving your tips mate not having a go at others people not saying u have to agree with other peoples tips. Been using the site for over a year and think the sites cracking iv never posted because i can’t pick my nose never mind a winner!

  26. Bruce Robertson 5 years ago

  27. Seamus 5 years ago
