ONE reason for starting the forum was to free up the main site for daily tips and that's worked to a certain extent.

Some people are using the forum for the way it was intended and far and away the most popular subject has been on betting challenges.

Dozens of members are involved and it's good to see. My Bet of the Day has turned into a £10 to £100 Challenge by popular demand with one win out of two attempts.

I've managed to persuade Greg to get involved but at the first attempt neither of is made it – Chelsea beating him and Liverpool me.

So we start again and you can follow the feature, give it a go or start you own.Tips are posted under Your Bets and Betting Challenges for members only.

Also watch out for details on how to enter the £1000 Last Man Standing-type 12 Days of Xmas contest for Gold and Silver members.

      bigbopper, if I win it’s a great idea – but imagine the pain I’ll suffer if I have to watch St Johnstone.

    Mr F, Greg, good luck with your challenge, I’m sure we will see plenty of winners. Ps, Greg, spoke to Mr F this morning and he reckons you’ll get the full hospitality package if he wins ,which means a pint in the Atlantis and a napkin with your pie !!

    • Mr Fixit 6 years ago

      desmond, in the good old days when I worked in Clydebank we got a 3-course lunch at the Atlantis for £1 – so maybe that will do. It was £2 if you added a pint.

  10. happel 6 years ago

    Can’t wait. Looking forward to this as well.

  11. dalian-shide 6 years ago

    Good luck guys. I will be on both bets either way.

  12. kingdingaling 6 years ago

    This should be fun !

    If I was a betting man I would pick Greg to be enjoying a free day out !

    • Mr Fixit 6 years ago

      kingdingaling, me too but I’ll give it a go.
      If Greg wins if he’s up for it we’ll let a member take him on and we’ll put up some prizes.
      I wonder how many would fancy their chances.

    Challenge of my own starting today:
    Day 1: £20 on a short priced double:
    Sparta Rotterdam v Volendam – Sparta DNB @ 2/7
    1st v 2nd in this one with Sparta only 3 points ahead but Sparta have been almost invincible at home winning their last 7 in a row and winning 10 out of their last 12 at home with the other 2 being Draws.

    Nurnberg v Paderborn – Over 1.5 MGls @ 2/9
    Both teams should score here but for a bank building challenge I’ll play it safe with Over 1.5 goals this has come up in each of Paderborns last 8 games, with both teams scoring in 6 of those. The home side Nurnberg have been in good goalscoring form of late scoring 4, 2, 3, 0, and 5 in their last 5 matches, they’ve also conceded 5 in those matches.

    £20 returns £31.43

  17. ourwullie 6 years ago

    Mr F, you mention a member taking on Greg. Sounds good! Maybe in the future all members could partake in an official challenge ‘last man standing’.

    • Mr Fixit 6 years ago

      ourwullie, that’s the plan for sure. Let’s get mine and Greg’s out of the way and we’ll start something else.
      The Xmas Contest that starts tomorrow is a type of Last Man Standing one anyway with at least £1000 cash or free bets on offer.

  18. ourwullie 6 years ago

    Great, I’ll be following it!
