IT was a decent enough Sunday after a tough Saturday.

My both teams to score fivefold came up, I tipped Man United to win at Arsenal, Gareth Bale at 9-2 to net for Spurs and Didier Drogba to score first at 11-4 for Ivory Coast in the African Nations Cup.

It was a bit of sweat on the both teams to score lines with a three-hour wait for it come up.

Throughout the day the winners dropped thanks to AZ v Ajax then Siena v Napoli.

Next it was Hamburg 1, Borussia Dortmund 5 then the game I didn't worry about, Arsenal v Man Utd, although it took some time to get going.

So that left more than two and a half hours until kick-off at Real Madrid v Athletic Bilbao. An early Fernando Llorente goal for the visitors settled my nerves and the line was up in 25 minutes when Marcelo levelled.

That paid a best £140.40 to a £10 stake and I had a score and more on it.

    Well done Paul

    YThanks for your tips Paul. I. have a free £100 bet from Bet365 burning a hole in my pocket from Sat 21st. I took 3 of your tips and bottled it to take the 5. I need to turn it to £600 before I can withdraw. I am absolutely sick I left out the Arsenal and Real Madrid games. Not as sick as my mate though. He put on a speculative fiver on 13 matches BTTS. One match in the Belgian league did him for 5K.

      Johnnie, don’t feel so bad. No harm in building it up slowly. I was super confident about the Arsenal game, less so about Real Madrid but history pointed to Athletic scoring. Tough luck on your mate though but 13 right is a tough ask.

    As I mentioned earlier…..well done Paul. Always worth following your selections ;)

    Plus bale to score, great day

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Craig, yeah forgot about Bale and some goal it was too. Also put up first goal over 31 mins at Man City and my text tip was over 3.5 goals at Real Madrid.

    Well done on the both to scores Mr Fixit. Helped me make up for a bad Saturday.

    I had four of them, missing out on Siena-Napoli.

    I thought it was gone when Hamburg were 5-0 down but they managed a late goal.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Eric, were you thinking it would be Goodnight Siena!

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Simon, I had a few quid on my five and another few lines, one which had nine just for 50p. It included two games from Mexico which were priced short so I took them trusting the bookie’s view and both finished 2-1. So a bit of luck there.

  8. Mark Bowes 12 years ago

    I added the early Spanish game into mine as well so i had a 22/1 winner and six 14/1 winners! Excellent day and it was (mainly) all down to you Paul thanks mate!!

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Mark, well done with that. It’s a decent return.

  9. Martin 12 years ago

    cheers fix it, didnt plan on doing a btts yesterday until I saw your line. Did Utrecht v PSV though instead of the Ajax game as it was better odds. Levante let me down for a treble otherwise it would have been a clean sweep with a Man Utd single coming in.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Martin, nice one. Currently studying tomorrow’s card for btts.
