WELL done to all the winners … on the football badge quiz

You know you're struggling when that's the highlight of your day.

I hope everyone's staying healthy and managing to fill their day somehow.

I've got lots more time on my hands than usual but helping to put a paper out and trying to keep the site alive gives me some focus.

There are many people worse off than me and if you get a chance read David McCarthy's article in Thursday's Daily Record on how the mental health charity Back Onside are helping suffering footballers.

Andy Robertson has boosted them massively with a donation and the site will be doing likewise when we get back up and running properly.

Back Onside are doing a helluva job in tough times and it almost makes me wonder why I'm even trying to find something to bet on.

But I think it's important to keep the forum active and it's good to see punters sharing their experiences and wishing each other well.

Thursday is a no bet day for me and as I'll doing for weeks I'll be studying the pools and trying second guess how the pools panel will vote before picking out my draws.

Best comment on Wednesday was Greg's “any Nicaraguan experts out there” as he targets the early-morning games.

Apart from that there's esports to bet on and not surprisingly bookies have reported big interest in the FIFA 20 Quaranteam tournament that's raising money for MND – I've never had time to play FIFA so I can't help but if you any thoughts put them up.

Games on Thursday include Angers vs Melbourne Victory and Reading vs Celta Vigo and Coral are offering match prices and outright betting with Middlesbrough the favourites.

Spokesman Harry Aitkenhead said: “We've been surprised by the number of our punters who are getting into esports at the moment and this Quaranteam tournament is creating a real buzz around esports in general.

“With quite a few professionals taking the controllers the market has moved quite quickly and it's Middlesborough who look the strongest and have attracted the most bets.”

    Just thought I’d mention as well there is a full array of markets being offered in tomorrow’s headline game in the Belarusian Reserve League, GL gents 😂

    Mr Fixit you mentioning the pools reminded me of a joke I played on a work mate about 30 years ago when the pools were at their peak.
    We were on the bunce with a pools coupon , no fancy plan just 8 from 10 draws.
    When we made our selections out on the coupon we left the copy coupon on a work bench and would check it when we did overtime on the Sunday.
    This particular Sunday I was in early and checked the results and as usual we hadn’t won but I had a spare copy coupon so marked down the 7 draws and the 1 no score draw and replaced it with our copy.
    When he came in I waited until tea break ( remember them ) and said to him we had forgot to check our coupon so I said I will read the draws out and you check them off.
    It went something like this
    Me- number 4
    Him- home win
    Me number 8
    Him score draw
    Me number 13 him score draw
    Etc etc until he had checked them all off and said we had 23 points I said the most you can get this week is 23 points …. we have hit the jackpot!!
    He said what do we do now ? I said you need to phone the pools company so he headed up to the pay phone and I waited until he was half way there and shouted him back and told him the truth , his face was a picture !
    Anyone else got any similar stories?

    • Mr Fixit 6 months ago

      That’s a cracker – 23pts this weekend would be nice although you couldn’t actually spend it on anything.
      Fancy a Porsche? Sorry we’re closed. What about a trip to Vegas? Sorry, no flights. OK, I’ll celebrates with a Dominos – seems to be the only place open.

      365 paid ou👍

  4. weeguy 6 months ago

    Have a five fold acca on Nicaragua games last night. Four in, fifth postponed. Will 365 pay out on four fold?

    • maccathered 6 months ago

      Had the same weeguy,yeah they will but it will take them a week or so to pay out,your better off trying to steer clear of 365 as they take far to long in settling/voiding non runners,Skybet are excellent as they void games that aren’t being played straight away.

    • weeguy 6 months ago

      Thanks macca👍

    • maccathered 6 months ago

      No worries weeguy,lets hope they settle sooner rather than later.

  5. sean567 6 months ago

    Quarantine-100%. I know each to their own but betting companies pushing stuff like this to the forefront is just feeding the addicts. It’s people playing computer games for Christ sake. What’s next, betting on train time tables?

    • old al 6 months ago

      I agree Sean not for me, fair do if you have some knowledge but the vast majority of punters are going in blind.

    • sean567 6 months ago

      yeah al cant really blame the bookies, if they price a market and folk want to bet on it that’s up to them, but to me its just feeding problem gamblers addictions.

    • Mr Fixit 6 months ago

      To be fair if you’re a problem gambler you’ll be on the slots and casino games – not esports.

    • sean567 6 months ago

      although I suppose they would just find something else to bet on. Just cant get my head round folk betting on computer games or stuff that they’ve never contemplated before (unless its a tip from somewhere) just for the sake of having a bet, but maybe that’s just me.

    • maccathered 6 months ago

      I wouldn’t worry about it to much sean as i think your problem gamblers will be throwing away their money on other things rather than the e-sports.

    I have 4 of the 5 Nicaraguan games >2.5 mg with the 5th postponed with Bet365 but I only had £1 on it, returns £9.16, as I only bet up to about £10 / bet in any case. I find Bet365 will pay out sooner than 1 week, particularly if you contact them, but it may take them 2-3 days.

  8. sean ireland 6 months ago

    Sod all else to do whilst in isolation so here goes
    FIFA #UltimateQuaranTeam 2020
    Coventry to qualify against QPR @ 9/4 Skybet,they are 3/1 to win in normal time which i also like
    Reasoning?
    Backed them against Rochdale which they won with ease 5-1 with some great thumb control on the PS pad by Coventry City full-back Brandon Mason who has a good stable internet connection so no lag and is at the pad again this evening. QPR scraped past Derry City 2-1 in last round and the thumb control and button pressing on the pad just didn’t seem on par with that of Coventry.
    Good luck { probably gonna need it lol }

  11. old al 6 months ago

    I sincerely really feel for you guys in the towns. I have a small holding in a wee village in the Peak District, consequently my day hasn’t changed much. The pub and the church are shut but fortunately the pub landlord is also the milkman ( used to sell milk, bread etc. from the pub but delivers now he has bugger all to do). He also will deliver beer so no shortage yet. We have a hay barn ( open sided ) where we congregate about 3-4ish for an hour or so while the weather is so good, bringing our own beer and keeping a social distance. As we get no passing traffic these days and everyone who works in offices are at home the only thing coming in or out are the odd delivery. We class ourselves as the opposite of Eyam ( look it up ). I do genuinely feel for you guys but the lack of shops, takeaways etc. has finally paid off.

      No betting on sheep racing yet Al?

    • old al 6 months ago

      Know a guy who does ferret racing at the summer shows, already suggest putting it on YouTube ( I have some nice sheep at the moment , they seem to be getting better looking by the day )

    • adriang 6 months ago

      Al you have just reminded me of a joke where the army are guarding a remote island.
      A young soldier has arrived and a week or so he meets another soldier and he asks him, what do you do for women. Ah there’s no women on the island but every Friday at 7:30 there’s a boat that takes you over to the other island and there are loads of sheep. You’ll never see me on that….. 3 weeks later he is in line with the others and boards the boat to the other island. As the boat gets close to the landing the others start jumping overboard and running for the island so he does it as well. When he catches up with another soldier he asks him why is everyone running for the island when there are plenty of sheep to go around.
      “Well you don’t want to get an ugly one!”

    Coventry took a severe beating 1-4 against QPR in the UltimateQuaranTeam 2020 so bet down,heard a rumour that the Coventry player Brandon Mason who was representing the club had been on the fizz since early morning plus i think the X button on his game pad was jammed,had i known this before hand id have put my 50p instead on Mr F winning a medal for tossing his caber at next years highland games.
