Poor Jack Grealish! On the day his transfer to Manchester City broke the British record at £100m he still wasn't the biggest story on planet football.

Nor was St Johnstone's 1-1 draw with Galatasaray!

Oh no! Barcelona announced that Lionel Messi would no longer be staying with the club thus sparking a scramble for the  little genuis' signature. There are plenty of pundits that think the ‘financial and structural obstacles‘ will be overcome and that the Argentinian will stay at the Nou Camp but realistically there's only likely to be two other clubs in Europe that can afford him.

PSG lead the betting at 4/5 (Paddy Power), while it's 7/4 that he remains a Barcelona player. Man City are 7/1 to add Messi to their ranks or you can have 16/1 that he opts to see out the rest of his career at ANY club in the MLS. Plenty of other Premier League clubs are listed in the betting or you can have 22/1 on Juventus pulling off an incredible move that would see Messi and Ronaldo team up to tear up Serie A.

On the pitch, St Johnstone‘s 1-1 draw with Galatasaray was fantastic, and well deserved but it probably still wasn't the most impressive result from a British club on Thursday night, that honour falls to Welsh side The New Saints who were 4-0 up with minutes to go against Viktoria Plzen, who graced the Champions League just a couple of seasons ago. The loss of two late goals took some shine off the win but they've given themselves a great chance to progress.

Attention turns to domestic football on Friday and the return of the Football League in England. Bournemouth and West Brom kick-off the season with both eyeing a return to the Premier League.

Both clubs have new managers at the helm, with Scott Parker's appointment for the Cherries raising a few eyebrows as he'll now attempt to gain promotion with his new club at the expense of his former club Fulham, who will most likely be there or thereabouts at the top of the table.

Both squads look evenly matched and with no form to go on it's impossible to call the winner. Home advantage sees Bournemouth favourites at 13/10 with the Baggies at 21/10. Mark Walker has previewed the match for us and has suggested three plays if you're having a bet.

Ligue 1 also begins on Friday and Tolu has previewed the match between Monaco and Nantes, which is live on BT Sport 2.

We had some success in Ireland last Friday night and there's another bet worth a second look from Dublin again this week. In the First Division UCD host top of the table Shelbourne. The visitors are unbeaten in 17 and enjoy a nine point lead at the summit. They've tripped up in the last few weeks, winning just one of their last four but look overpriced to get the better of mid-table UCD.

They appeal at 31/20 to win but the safer pick looks to be to back them on the Draw No Bet market at 10/11 at Bet365.

    BOLIVIAN PREMIER DIVISION 12AM

    JORGE WILSTERMANN V AURORA

    Very wary that Aurora dont really concede a lot and are in relatively tight low scoring matches, Wilstermann still are very strong at home and aurora dont travel well, which leads me to a couple of fairl solid picks on this match tonight.

    JORGE WILSTERMANN WIN 4/5 NAP (B365)🔥🔥🔥✅

    B365 BETBUILDER 8/5 NB 🔥🔥✅
    *WILSTERMANN WIN✅
    * UNDER 4 MATCH GOALS✅

    B365 BETBUILDER 4/1 LONGSHOT🔥❌
    *WILSTERMANN WIN✅
    *UNDER 3 MATCH GOALS❌

    *WILSTERMANN WIN✅
    *WILSTERMANN HT/FT✅
    *UNDER 4 MATCH GOALS✅
    *UNDER 10 MATCH CORNERS❌

    GL All will be on all of these 👍

    Goto chuckle im at the 87th min thinking only thing that would really screw me for a full house is a corner resulting in a goal… Next best thing corner in 88th min resulting in a penalty which was duly converted by aurora stiffing the other longshots 1 and 2.. still NAP and NB winners and a nice profit wdw👍

    Friday – FC Den Bosch v Helmond Sport

    Going against my own team here. Den Bosch has been taken over 2 weeks ago by PMG, they also have invested in Barnsley and other clubs around Europe. The deal is sealed, but we still haven’t signed new players. They are really needed because the squad is really thin at the moment. In pre-season we have been beaten by amateur sides twice. Tonight we could miss our best players Hornkamp en Felida as well due to injury.

    Helmond have signed some decent players and are full strenght. Den Bosch haven’t won against Helond in the last two seasons and can’t see it happening tonight.

    Helmond +0.25 asian handicap @ 1.90 with BV

    Not too bad yesterday on the betting front and looking at a few matches later on that could be worth a look!

    FC ASERRÍ VS. LIMÓN
    (Costa Rica – 10.15pm)

    Seems strange seeming Limon in the 2nd tier and I’m pretty sure rhey’ll be feeling bitter about their drop from the top-flight.

    They have a decent side and, relatively speaking, play a good standard of football which should be enough to see them dominate possession and get off to a solid start.

    OVER 9.5 CORNERS
    (10/11, bet365) NAP ⭐⭐⭐⭐

    OVER 3.5 GOALS
    OVER 9.5 CORNERS
    (5/1, bet365) LONGSHOT ⭐

    HAMAR VS. STOKKSEYRI
    (Iceland – 9.00pm)

    This one could well see goals – it’s a fixture that has produced plenty in the past with 4 of the last 6 seeing 6 or more match goals.

    Hamar and KH are the most likely candidates to top the table and get out of the huge 4 Deild pot of teams so they’ll certainly be looking to make the most of this one with Stokkseyri falling short but hopefully contributing to the bet:

    OVER 5.5 GOALS
    (6/5, bet365) NB ⭐⭐

    Will also add this one for small stakes as a daytime punt:

    SPARTAK MOSKVA U19 VS. STROGINO U19
    (Russia – 12.00pm)

    Home form looks to be key here for the Russian Youth side:

    OVER 3.5 GOALS
    (11/10, bet365 ⭐⭐

    Best of luck with all bets!

    Last week’s bet on icardi in the French cup anytime goalscorer was a loser as psg drew a blank and lost the game. I’ve decided to try and be disciplined and haven’t had a bet since last Sunday. Tonight I fancy 2 strikers to net volland of Monaco at 2.54 and solanke of Bournemouth at 3 10 both on betfair exchange. although I fancy both players to net I’m going with solanke simply because he’s a better price.

    Good lucky to everyone with their bets tonight

    Early one for tomorrow, 10/3 in some places. Has a fair bit of history against Rangers with Aberdeen and Celtic, should be involved a fair bit and likes a tackle, already has a yellow against Arbroath and should have seen at least a yellow against Aberdeen. Think it’s fairly decent odds all things considered 🤞
