ZAMALEK, Oberhausen, Ural, Koln, Go Ahead and Gainsborough – how many of these sides had you even heard of before Monday never mind bet on?

All were tipped up on this site – with good reasoning – over the last few days and all put cash in punters' pockets. Pity the likes of Stevenage and Yeovil couldn't oblige.

So well done to everyone who contributed and remember tips are always welcome when posted as comments – and if you can provide reasoning even better.

One bookie I spoke to said he'd never seen so much money on a Ural win and blamed the popularity of this site for that and the fact the Russians first division side were cut most of the day.

Of course, the fact we're backing sides such as Egyptians Zamalek and Germans Oberhausen is because there's not happening in the more familiar leagues in the run-up to the World Cup qualifiers on Friday.

So it's more of the same tonight and loads of teams have been mentioned this morning including Sutjeska Niksic, Novara, Palmeiras, Arsenal ladies and 1860 Munich.

Milesey and other have flagged up Westerlo at home to Dessel in the Belgian second division and they look a great bet.

Second-placed Westerlo have won six in a row at home,scoring 17 and conceding one. What's more four of those victories came against outfits higher placed than eighth-ranked Dessel.

It was 4-0 to Westerlo when the sides me last September and that's why best price is 9-20 at Betway. However, they should win by two or more so I'm on the handicap at 21-20 with bet365.

1860 Munich are another side who should win at a short price but I can see no better than 1-3 at Stan James. The second-placed side have lost just one in 10 as they entertain Aschaffenburg.

There are lots of goals in German regional football and I'm willing to look at both teams to score at 10-11 with Paddy Power.

If Westerlo and 1860 Munich bets come I'll reinvest in Palmeiras at home to Botafogo (10.30pm) in the Brazilian league. They are currently 3-5 at 188bet.

I've looked at Novara at Varese and they also seem decent value at a biggest 13-5 with Coral. Novara are unbeaten in seven while Varese have lost their last three so the price is big. In fact it's so big I might consider Novara draw no bet at 7-5 with Betway which is a safer option.

    England – Newcastle’s Steven Taylor gets the call
    Roy Hodgson has had a lot to deal with ahead of England’s forthcoming World Cup qualifiers, the first of which is Friday evening’s game in San Marino. Hodgson always knew he would be without Phil Jagielka for these vital qualifiers and that’s why he opted to bring back Rio Ferdinand. However, given Rio’s bizarre U-turn and Gary Cahill and Michael Dawson’s withdrawals through injury, the England squad has been left more than a little light on defensive cover. While replacements Joleon Lescott and Tottenham’s Steven Caulker have already earned caps under Hodgson, Newcastle’s Steven Taylor has been drafted in at the age of 27 and could well earn his very first cap on Friday. England should cope at the back no matter who Hodgson opts to play there against San Marino, because the action will all be happening down the other end. It may be worth noting though that England have only scored five goals or more away from home twice this century.
    Under 4.5 goals can be backed at 2.76

      Well that never happened did it ? i should stay away from things i know nothing about, and Japenese football is one of them. What else for today ? i can only see one thing i will be staking on and that is :

      Westerlo V Dessel / WESTERLO WIN @ 2/5

      Looking at previous results may have alittle punt at :

      WESTERLO by 2 goals @ 3/1

      and correct score of 2-0 @ 11/2 and 3-1 11/1

      and thats it for the football today, only game i have actually looked closely at, seeing as though today is very poor, just pick out a couple of games and have alook through the stats etc….. and just focus on them, it’s a poor night and this is the best way forward.

      Belgian Second Division, Sint Truiden have won eight of their last ten home games. Solid defence has been the bedrock of this success: the Canaries have conceded only twice in their last 11 at Stayen.

    Was looking at the tip from Mike Jackson on Sutjeska Nikšić to bet Čelik Nikšić. Sutjejka do look on a good run of form at the moment, scoring lots of goals. However, the last time the two teams met Čelik Nikšić won 3-0. As much as it sounds silly, I like to check the scores the last time the teams played.

    Anyone else?

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      SMarky, looking at the result is sometimes important but was that at Celik’s ground. Are the personnel the same, what about form? All these matter.

  5. Mr H 11 years ago

    Kawasaki Marinos v Kawasaki Frontale in the Japenese Nabisco Cup 8am. League leaders after 3 games with 3 wins entertain bottom club Frontale in this cup match. Keenly priced at 10/11 for a strong home side who have rattled in 11 goals in a great start too their season, have conceded just 3 goals. Shizimu S Pulse are 10/11 at home too Kofu, granted they haven’tade a great start too the league campaign but they are a strong side and I’d expect them too come out on top at home. Fatheads already stated ENPPI priced at 3/4 who are top of their league with 3 wins 3 draws and 1 loss from 7 and face 2nd bottom El Gounah who have yet too record a victory in 6 games and found the net just 5 times. The he side have lost just once in 11 at home and that was against Egyptian big guns Al Ahly.

    Decent priced treble for a small stake could be a good starter too tomorrow

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Mr H, going by the stats it’s a good price. Wonder how many people will dare to walk into a bookies tomorrow and ask: What price Kawasaki? A new one’s probably about £10k.

  6. Mr H 11 years ago

    Celik? Wasn’t he a dud signing for Rangers not so long ago that the fans weren’t too keen too cheer his name

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Mr H, that’s right, Mervan Celik he was and had to put Mervan on the back of his shirt to appease the Rangers fans. Now in Serie A with Pescara.

  7. SMarky 11 years ago

    You would obviously expect the home team to have a slight advantage and looking back it was in October so form may have drastically changed.

    I’m not one for betting on lower leagues, especially on teams I’ve never hear of like you said so I think I’ll leave the tips to you guys! Looking forward to the International games on Friday.

  8. Mr H 11 years ago

    SMarky most of our winnings since yesterday have been on teams we hadn’t heard of and it shouldn’t put you off backing them. Aslong as the fo and stats are up too scratch it’s no different too backing teams that are commonly known. In fact I’d argue that it could benefit backing such teams as sometimes boggling doubts creep into our minds because we think we know these teams and how they should perform we do just because they are familiar names. Knowledge can be a dangerous asset in some cases :)

    Not so much a weird and wonderful side bit Barcelona B for goals in their matches!

    They are sitting 7th in the leauge. Having scored 66 goals (highest in the league) but amazingly they have the worst defensive record in the league with 55 conceded!

    Away from home they score 2 goals most games but conceed at least 3!

    Over 3.5 goals in their matches is the norm and for them to score over 1.5 goals away from home is often the case!

    Real Madrid B, like Barca B have lots of goals in their games although a lot of their matches have been tight recently so it’s worth keeping an eye on

    Livorno and Empoli produce lots of goals in their matches from Seria B, Empoli especially ( another 3-2 win tonight)

    Keep and eye out on the 4 of them for over 2.5 and over 3.5 goals!

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Greg, as you know when top flights are on I concentrate on them but when Barca B play Real B I always go for goals.

  14. Badham 11 years ago

    I’ve found a game at 8:30 in the Indian I League that looks a solid bet.

    Mohan Bagan v Pune

    Both sides strong in form of late even though the home side are sitting bottom in the table. Although the games they have in hand could pull them well clear. That being the case it’s the away side Pune that catch my eye with the best away record in the league. Scoring 18 goals in 9 matches averaging exactly 2 a game in the process winning 7 and losing 2.

    Bet for this game is

    Pune to score 2+ goals

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Badha, what’s the price and who’s it with.

  15. Mike Jackson 11 years ago

    Mr F.

    Sutjeska are the in-form team in that league. This year they have played 4, won 4. 2 at home and 2 away.

    Čelik this year have played 4, won 2, drawn 2, but the wins have been home games.

    Čelik haven’t lost this year but I think that 85/40 for Sutjeska is worth a punt.

  16. Mike Jackson 11 years ago

    SMarky, see above as well

    • SMarky 11 years ago

      Yeah just catching up on all the chat Mike. Possibly double it up with both teams to score. I’ve yet to really look into tomorrows games so I’m happy to just have a look at what others have to say.

  17. Sean Ireland 11 years ago


    Not a lot to go on as there is no past match history for a meeting of the 2 in this the quaterfinal first leg of the BIRDS CHAMPIONS LEAGUE,but englands birds recently beat italys birds 4-2 and 6 of Arsenals team played for England in that game. Stats in previous rounds show that the keepers mustnt be up to much as there is always a few goals…birds cant catch for toffee can they??{Arsenal won previous round game 6-4 agg } so i advise over 2.5 goals,arsenal will win but odds are 1/4,perhaps minus 1 might be worth a try. Midfielder for Arsenal is up the duff{7 months}im assuming she isnt playing and i havent heard who the father is but Arsene Wenger says it isnt him :)

    • Sean Ireland 11 years ago

      Sean, they might be OK as long as they don’t play Torres.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Sean, you’ve hung yerself out to dry with those comments but could be worth a look on the overs going by what they say. Don’t know much about English women’s football except that Arsenal are the best by miles.

    • Sean Ireland 11 years ago

      They gave Barcelona a terrible beating previously,not sure but i think it was 6-0 agg,i might consider them on an asian line if the price is right.

    Just seen an advert on skysports saying if you text BET to 67555 and open an account, if England beat San Marino 6-0 they’ll give you £100.

    All it says is you must deposit before the game starts. £100 of bets is required before the £100 is withdrawable, should England win 6-0 of course.

    Advert never gave the bookies name but I googled the offer & its with a company called betbright. Offer for new customers only.

    So if your interested all you need to do is

    Text BET to 67555, open an account & make a deposit

    Has anyone heard of, or bet with them before?

  26. Tickety 11 years ago

    Re the 2 Games finished 1-0 and 1-1 respectively so a good start to the day,some of the winnings have gone on the match between Kawasaki Marinos to win and also under 3.5 goals not great odds but a win is a win.Hope i’m not being too presumptive!

  27. Mr H 11 years ago

    Mes try sticking 2 doubles and trebles, multiple small profits are better than no profit at all. Rome wasn’t built in a day! The more selections you take means the more likely chance of failure. Maximum stake with minimum selections is my motto

  28. Sean Ireland 11 years ago

    This time of the season can be very hard to predict as the teams you would normally overlook or even back against start fighting for their lives as tey need to avoid relegation and more often than not it is these teams that will provide the shock result at big odds against the ”bankers” on your accie.One league that is notorious to predict is the English championsip,their is very little between any of the teams and only 26 points seperates 2nd top from 2nd bottom and 2nd top as only scored 1 more goal than the team at the foot of the table.Does this mean it is to be avoided if placing a bet?well if backing a banker for part of an accie id say yes but on the other hand it gives us an oportunity to ditch the accie and go for less teams such as a decent priced double or even treble that contains a team with everyting to fight for against a mid table team that is ust going trough the motions,these teams offer us great value at odds of about 5/2 or above.You dont need all teams on your list at these odds as you are unlikely to pick 3 winners at these prices but adding 1 gives you the adds of about 3 ”bankers” so you reduce the teams on your bet.Its called beating the bookie at their own game.LOOK FOR VALUE ODDS AND REDUCE YOUR TEAMS!! Mr Fixit,Milesey,mr h,muzza amongst others on here have a better knowledge than me on betting and will advise you better but these are my thoughts,hope it helps you beat the bookie.

  29. Mr H 11 years ago

    Mes do you use any statistical sites?

    Try it will give you an insight into just about every league in the world and gives data on firm, overs & unders, past 5 yrs leagues for each country. It all gives you a predicted outcome and score for each match which will help you in your quest for winning lines.

    Sint Truiden play hosts to an Aalst side that have lost 7 and drew 3 in there last 10 on the road Sint Truiden boast 7 wins and 3 draws in there last 10 home games.

    Antwerp who are a hit an a miss at home should take care of a Heist team who find the net on the road but seem to get beat rather often.

    Westerlo who have one 6 of there last 7 at home and are pushing for promotion should cover the -1 at home to Dessel but play it safe with them just to win

    Prediction – Treble around the 3/1 mark
    SintTruiden – Antwerp – Westerlo

    Single – Westerlo 2 Score In Both Halves @ 5/4

    Both 2 Score Treble @ 5/1
    Eupen v Peruwelz
    Roeselare v Lommel

  33. Mr H 11 years ago

    Mile set there’s 2 good shouts in the lower German leagues today. 1860 Munich II at home too Viktoria Ausch and SG Sonnenhof at home too Eintracht Frankfurt II

    Munich have won 7 of the last 8 and won the reverse fixture 3-1 away earlier in the season. Viktoria have lost 4 of the last 8,drawing 2 and winning 2. Twice they have lost 5gls and twice they have lost 4gls in that sequence. Scoring just 8 and conceding 21 in that time

    Sonnenhof are 8th and entertain bottom club Frankfurt and if they win they move into 5th. They have won 6 of the last 7 at home with impressive results 3-0,4-0,5-0,1-0,5-2 and 4-1 being the winning margins. Frankfurt have lost 11 of the last 14.

    Evens for the double

    • Milesey 11 years ago

      Nice one ;) ;)

      If everyone can just come up with two nice bets today, i am sure we can turn this poor day fixture wise, into something very profitable, as we all did on monday ;)

    Yokohama scored late :) got them 11/10 in play so that covers all my bets today if they hold out

  35. Andy 11 years ago

    Novara in Italy Serie B, playing away tonight against Varese. Novara look the better of the two sides based on form.

    Varese were on a great run at home however recently they’ve only won 2 of the last 5.

    On the other hand, Novara after being on a dreadful run on the road are unbeaten in the last 5 away games, winning 3 of those. Unbeaten in 7 games overall. Only 2 loses in the last 14 games.

    They do sit below Varese in the league however Novara look good money at 5/2 Bet365 for tonight’s game.

  36. Flyboivince 11 years ago

    My single banker tip for today will be from the Asian continent a country called Singapore .

    Courts young lions vs aibirex Niigata fc .

    My pick is two , Niigata has won all opening 4 league matches and are in treffic form and are currently sitting on the number one position in the league while their host young lions are at the other side of the table , played four lost all four odds at 1.50 from bet365

  37. Mr H 11 years ago

    Albirex Niigata away too Courts Young Lions in the Singapore S league at 1/2. Top v bottom. Niigata have 4 wins from 4 so far scoring 6 and conceding 2. Lions have drawn 1 and lost 3 from 4 scoring twice and conceding 6. Niigata finished 3rd last season and 20 points better off than the lions who finished 10th with just 25 goals all season. Looks like the same trend this season

  38. usa man 11 years ago

    come on the swindon nice return last night.

  39. Mr H 11 years ago

    Vince I’m on Niigata too and a double with Atletico Minerio tonight could be the way too go or Juventade too make it a handsome treble

  40. Flyboivince 11 years ago

    It’s an early morning game lads get on it ASAP am thinking of making it a double will 1860 Munich 2 win

  41. Flyboivince 11 years ago

    Nice one mr H will look the minero game up

  42. Mr H 11 years ago

    Niigata,ENPPI and FK Sutjeska 13/2 treble

    Can’t understand why Sutjeska are 2/1 at home when they are league leaders and have 9 wins from 10 at home scoring 17 conceding 6 against 3rd place Celik who have an average away record of 5 wins 3 draws and 2 defeats from 10. Sitting 10 points a drift of the leaders.

    Stinking value unless I’m missing something

    • gursindersingh 11 years ago

      i wouldn.t touch the sutjeska game this is a bookies trap,celik are favourates to win.personally i would go for the draw celik are no mugs this is why their favourates

    That’s all I’m betting today with each one covered by Yokohama Marinos victory this morning

    Good luck all with selections today

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Mr H, some interesting teams in there. I’ll put up single and double soon but not much else.

  47. Mr H 11 years ago

    Gursingdersingh the stats suggest otherwise and I’m happy 2 back the home team based on this seasons home form and knowing a victory today will move them 13 points clear of today’s opponents with just 11 games remaining which should therefore make it a 2 horse race for a title they haven’t won since its setup in 2006, best place finish was 3rd in 08-09

  48. RabTheHermit 11 years ago

    I’m going to take a chance on the BTTS in the Singapore game. Niigata have kept 2 out of 2 clean sheets on the road while Young Lions have only scored once in two home games so statistically not likely but I’m going to have a punt anyway. Having scored in all 4 of their matches I think their is a good chance Niigata will score in this one so its all about Young Lions. They have scored in their last 2 outings and scored both times the teams met last year so I think its worth a nibble for them to score at home here.

  49. Sean Ireland 11 years ago

    Im liking the look of Westerlo at home to Dessel in the Belgium – EXQI League as someone mentioned above. They won the reverse 4-0 away last sept and the odds for a victory -1 @11/10 bet365 look very tempting considering they have only been beaten once at home all season from 13 games whilst Dessel have only won twice from 13 aways,in the last 6 homes Westerlo have won 6 scoring 17 conceding just 1 and last 5 games home and away they have won 4 by 2-0 and one 3-1,this suggests a -1 handicap at those odds has a great chance, dare i say it?…….’BANKER OF THE DAY’ WESTERLO -1 @11/10.

  50. Greg Browning 11 years ago

    It’s league cup semi final time in Hungary

    Egri Fc v Ferencvaros

    Based on league form this looks like an away banker! Ferencvaros are 5th in the leauge, won their last 3 and are 20 points ahead of the hosts who are second bottom and have lost their last 5 league matches!

    However, this is where is gets interesting, Egri finished joint top of the league cup group winning 4 of their 6 matches! Unbelievably they then went on to beat League leaders Gyori ETO 7-4 on aggregate in the quarter finals! ( Gyori are 33 points better off than Egri)

    Ferencvaros went though 5-5 on away goals!

    Putting league form aside Egri appear to be Cup experts, and has put me off Ferencvaros st 4/6! Still believe they’ll win but instead the best bet appears to be over 2.5 and over 3.5 goals

    Over 2.5 is 8/15
    Over 3.5 is 2.3 on goal line market!

    Reutlingen v Mannheim in the German Oberliga, 6pm kick off, Reutlingen have hit 9 in their last 3 home games and Mannheim have hit 7 in their last 3 away games, Head to Head generally has the home team winning so maybe another game to throw into the crazy mix :-)

  53. Greg Browning 11 years ago

    Paul, not that i can see! Over half of those called up play in Europe with the remaining players playing for either for Videoton, Gyori or Debreceni! Think only 2 Ferencvaros players where called up!

    I may be wrong but it seems like a derby Sutjeska Niksic vs Niksic this may explain the tight odds and with the reverse Niksic done them 3-0 that may also be why there favs with the bookies.

    Blackburn Rovers can be backed at 9.0 for relegation from the Championship after Michael Appleton became the third manager to leave the club this season.

    Appleton was in charge for only 67 days and 15 games before controversial owners Venky’s decided to call time on his reign. His last match was Sunday’s 1-1 draw with East Lancashire rivals Burnley. That came three days after the team were knocked out of the FA Cup by Millwall in a disappointing 1-0 defeat. However, Rovers had defied expectations to get that far, famously beating Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the fifth round.

    That victory was the highlight of Appleton’s short reign and, since then, Rovers have gone eight games without a win. They have scored only once in their last four fixtures and a downward trajectory currently leaves them 18th in the Championship. They were backed as high as 95.0 for relegation at the start of the season but those odds have narrowed as turmoil has become the norm at Ewood and Venky’s decisions continue to baffle supporters.

    There was disbelief when they dismissed Sam Allardyce in November 2010 with the club 13th in the Premier League. They had finished an impressive tenth the previous season and were gaining a reputation as a decent mid-table outfit. Big Sam’s unpopular replacement, Steve Kean, only just kept Blackburn up in 2011 and, a year later, they were relegated. At the start of this season, they were fancied to be in contention at the top of the Championship and were backed at 2.18 for promotion.

    Promising signings were made in the summer but, although Danny Murphy was a positive influence before his relationship with Appleton soured, and Jordan Rhodes has scored 20 league goals, the combination of injuries and instability off the pitch has cost Rovers. They were third in the table when Kean finally left, claiming that he’d been forced to resign, in late September. The appointment of Henning Berg, who was popular as a Blackburn player, brought renewed optimism but his reign was even shorter and more ignominious than Appleton’s: the Norwegian won only one of ten games in charge.

    In some respects Venky’s and Appleton were a perfect match. Neither have any truck with loyalty – he was their third manager of the 2012/13 season and they were the third team he’d been in charge of this term – but fans have, on the whole, greeted his sacking with disappointment. One who claims that the club are becoming a laughing stock appears to sum up the mood.

    Victory at Arsenal aside, Appleton did little to suggest that he was Blackburn’s saviour. However, most fans are astute enough to understand that nothing is gained by constantly changing the manager. When Appleton took over he mumbled platitudes about how excited he was to join an “historic club”(he was dumping Blackpool, who boast a pretty rich heritage themselves, after only 12 games) but, although Blackburn will gain nothing from living in the past, Venky’s need only study historical precedents to learn that most managers need time. Venky’s contradictions – their inexhaustible patience with Kean followed by trigger-happiness this season – threaten to be the ruin of a great club.

    Fans are frustrated because they’re the ones who are suffering. Players, managers and owners come and go but, snide remarks about attendances aside, the Blue and White Army are loyal and committed. They want a manager with integrity and ambition to get a fair chance to take the club in the right direction. Reserve-team coach Gary Bowyer has been put in charge for the remainder of the season and his brief is simple: use Blackburn’s remaining nine games to make sure that they avoid a consecutive relegation.

    Long term, optimists will talk about Mark Hughes. There’s no reason, however, why a man who justifiably considers his pedigree to be that of a Premier League boss would want to work at Ewood under Venky’s. Especially as Blackburn may soon be playing League One football.

    England’s match in San Marino – the first of their double-header in Group H – is all about goals: how many, when they will arrive, who will score them.

    The outcomes in most of the markets seem blindingly obvious, which makes the odds very short, but there are one or two that could be worth backing at bigger prices.

    In the half-time score market, for instance, the hot favourite is any unquoted score at 1.41. Yet one of the nine quoted scores has occurred in San Marino’s last 17 home qualifiers and no visiting side has led by more than 2-0 at half-time since Germany were 6-0 up at the break on their way to a 13-0 victory in September 2006.

    The standard of opposition varies greatly in qualifiers, but it is notable that the best side to visit San Marino since Germany – Holland in 2010 – were 2-0 up at half-time and eventually won 5-0.

    The most common half-time score in San Marino’s last 17 home matches has been 0-1, which has occurred seven times and is available at 4 against England. Five of the 17 have been goalless at half-time and 0-0 is 8, while 0-2 (which has occurred four times) is 3.5.

    The half-time scores in England’s away qualifiers against similar minnows in the past decade have been 0-1, 0-0, 0-0 – and they led 2-0 at the break in the reverse fixture against San Marino in October – which indicates it is no foregone conclusion they will build a big early lead.

    The Wembley match ended 5-0 to England and the goals expectation is in the same area, as are the best options for punters. Those with a glass-half-full mentality when it comes to England could opt for over 5.5 goals at the odds-against price of 2.2 while the more pessimistic could go for under 4.5 goals at 2.2.

    Only one of San Marino’s 17 home qualifiers since the hammering by Germany has had over 5.5 goals, while 13 have had under 4.5 goals. Eight of England’s 50 qualifiers in the past decade have had over 4.5 goals (only three of those were away) and their away scores against the minnows were 2-0, 3-0 and 2-0, so overall this might not be the runaway success the markets expect.

    International weeks can lead punters to some strange places and one of the best bets on Friday could be Slovenia, who host Iceland in Group E.

    Slovenia have won seven of their last nine competitive home matches against teams currently ranked outside the top 30, while Iceland have lost 12 of their last 15 competitive away games and won only one (2-1 in Albania during the current qualifying campaign).

    The clincher is that Iceland are low scorers on the road, with 11 blanks in those last 15 away trips. If Slovenia score, as they usually do at home against all but the elite nations, they should win at 1.82.

    One of the bigger prices that catches the eye is Denmark, who have started slowly in Group B but remain one of the most solid sides in European football and are capable of getting something in the Czech Republic.

    The Danes have lost only three out of 21 in qualifiers since 2008 and two of those defeats were against top-class opponents (Italy and Portugal, both away). There is not much to choose between them and the Czech Republic, judging by their goalless draw in the reverse fixture, and win odds of 4 look generous.

    Denmark’s low defeat rate makes them particularly appealing at odds-against off 0 & +0.5 on the Asian handicap at 2.14.

    Recommended Bets
    Under 4.5 goals in San Marino v England at 2.2
    Slovenia to beat Iceland at 1.82
    Denmark off 0 & +0.5 on Asian handicap v Czech Republic at 2.14

      Italy and Brazil will square off at the 2013 Confederations Cup this June as Italy gained a spot in the tournament because Spain captured both the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the UEFA Euro 2012 titles.

      Brazil team has lost their last match 1:2 against England. They are in a 3 matches winless streak having lost against Argentina and drew against Colombia.

      Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has already had to rule out Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas (ankle) and Paulinho (thigh) for the international friendlies and also Ramires suffered a strained right adductor during Chelsea’s 2-0 Premier League victory over West Ham on Sunday and. The Chelsea midfielder is also in doubt for Brazil’s fixture against Russia. Doubt also surrounds the fitness of in-form Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa, who was forced off with an ankle problem during his team’s 2-0 away victory over Osasuna in La Liga on Sunday.

      All the eyes will be on Neymar. The 21-year-old is widely believed to be one of the most sought-after talents in world football and has reportedly courted the interest of European giants Bayern Munich and Barcelona. Fred is expected to partner the Santos star in attack

      Cesare Prandelli’s men are sitting pretty at the top of World Cup 2014 qualification Group B but come from a six-match winless run in international friendlies. The Azzurri got 1 win, 1 draw and 1 lose in their last 3 matches. They have beaten Denmark with 3-1 score, they have lost against France with 1-2 score and they got a draw against Holland with 1-1 score.

      Italy boss Cesare Prandelli has named his 27-man squad. Torino winger Alessio Cerci and Milan full-back Mattia de Sciglio are tipped to be handed their first Azzurri caps while Antonio Cassano, Davide Santon, Domenico Criscito and Marco Verratti have been overlooked. Chiellini has problems to his ankles and might be rested. Balotelli is in great from and will lead the attack: the 22-year-old has scored seven goals in six Serie A games since leaving Manchester City.


      Brazil (4-2-3-1): Julio Cesar; Dani Alves, Marcelo, Thiago Silva, David Luiz; Luiz Gustavo, Fernando; Neymar, Oscar, Hulk; Fred

      Italy (4-2-3-1): Buffon; De Sciglio, Bonucci, Barzagli, Maggio; Pirlo, De Rossi; Cerci, Marchisio, El Shaarawy; Balotelli

    • Milesey 11 years ago

      This is it for me today……….. so goodluck everyone. I’ll be back after hopefully a good days action on the track ;) ;)


      off to Hungary for our first selection of the day – and it’s the League Cup semi final first leg clash between Egri and Ferencvaros.

      The hosts are in miserable form at the moment, and have lost three of their last four at the snappily-named Szentmarjay Tibor Varosi Stadion, which will have knocked confidence in the home camp.

      That form leaves them 15th in the NB I table, occupying the last relegation place, and Antal Simon’s side are a whopping nine points from safety with the end of the season in sight.

      The Eger-based side, who were promoted to the top tier last campaign after securing the NB II East title, look destined to return to that division, and eight goals conceded in their last four on their own patch suggests that they have weaknesses in defence which could cost them in this clash.

      Visitors Ferencvaros sit fifth in the table ahead of this clash – and will be keen to secure a positive result in this first leg tie in order to get one foot into the final.

      Ricardo Moniz’ side have lost just one of their last 10 outings, and will be desperate to move on step closer to securing their first piece of silverware since 2004 this evening.

      And three unbeaten on the road in this competition suggests that they are likely to attack their hosts in this tie, in an attempt to gain an advantage ahead of the second leg.

      The away side secured a 2-2 draw in their last visit to Eger, and I fancy them to come out of this clash unscathed too – with their momentum propelling them to victory.

      Bet 1: Ferencvaros (AWAY) @ 1.8

      Switching our attentions to action in Belgium now, and it’s a relegation six pointer, as bottom side Sint-Niklaas host KSV Oudenaarde in the Second Division.

      The hosts go into this clash propping up the rest of the table, but are in relatively bright form on their own patch – and have lost just one of their last five in front of their own fans.

      Robby Kereman’s side have two games in hand on the sides around them down the bottom, and three points in this clash would be a major boost to their survival campaign.

      And three games without a loss against their guests will give the home side real confidence that they can take a maximum return from this encounter.

      Visitors Oudenaarde travel to the Stedelijk Sportcentrum Meesterstraat, in truly miserable form, having lost nine of their last 10 – and without a win in 11.

      And the East Flanders side have been just as bad away from the Burgemeester Thienpontstadion, losing six of their last seven and conceding 13 goals in that time.

      Stefan Leleu’s charges clearly have severe defensive issues at the moment, and I reckon that could play a key part in the outcome of this clash, with their hosts high in momentum.

      Sint-Niklaas could leapfrog their opponents with a win here, and recent form suggests that they won’t waste that chance.

      Bet 2: Sint-Niklaas (HOME) @ 2.3


      Ferencvaros (AWAY) @ 1.8

      Sint-Niklaas (HOME) @ 2.3

    Stevenage Football Club and manager Gary Smith have today agreed to part company after a disappointing run of results that saw the club lose 13 of the 18 games since December. Skipper Mark Roberts will take over whilst the search for a new Manager continues.

    Chairman Phil Wallace today said, “it’s always difficult when you have to replace the man in charge. Gary has done his best but the performances and results over the past few months have been worrying in the extreme.

    “After a very promising start with a new squad, we have slipped alarmingly and the Board are concerned that the present management team may be unable to deliver the clubs vision of increasing attendances and developing players in a winning environment. We have waited longer than most others in similar circumstances, but we cannot in all good conscience continue to watch this downward spiral and do nothing.

    “It’s time for a change and we’ll see who applies for the position. Meanwhile I’m indebted to skipper Mark Roberts who will, once again, step up and take charge whilst our search takes place.”


    Mark Roberts will get the team up for this game !!

  79. Mr H 11 years ago

    Milesey given access to the extra tv revenue that’s available in England Celtic would more than hold there own on England. They are a bigger club than anyone in England apart from Man Utd and Liverpool. Chelsea and City are nothing but middle of the road clubs who have become billionaires play things. With their fan base and worldwide appeal they would easily compete in the upper echelons of the over rated EPL in time. Wayne Rooney earns more in a week than Celtics starting 11 so a comparison at this stage given the financial restraints in Scottish football is very unfair ;)

    But as you said that’s a debate for a different day

    • Milesey 11 years ago

      League titles
      RANGERS 54 Times
      CELTIC 43 times

      and a guarantee of European football ;) ;)

      so………….. who is going to win the SPL this season and get in the champions league ?
      anybody want to take a guess ? ;) ;)

      Most people knew before the season kicked off, should that gain them entry in what is supposed to be Europes elite ?

      I know what my opinion is, and i could name 20 teams who should be playing and who are amoung Europes elite who won’t gain a place.

      Celtic have an amazing long history in Europe but is it any wonder when themselves and Rangers are stand out clubs in the scottish league. Annan where put into the scottish league to make the numbers up, they weren’t even a proper outfit, they were a youth team, up till 2008 when they gained entry for another team dropped out, as i say were put in to make up the numbers ;) ;) ;)

      ANYWAYS…………..hahaha, a debate is always good, and opinions differ, and i fight a losing battle on here against the Celtic fans and the scots anyway ;) ;) ;)

      An hour away from the days racing, so BUSY BUSY …….


    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Milesey, re Annan they were voted in and beat several other candidates to get there. True there was a vacancy but they didn’t get put in “to make up the numbers”.

  80. Mr H 11 years ago

    And the champions league should be as the name suggests and be for champions only but that wouldn’t suit sponsors or tv companies. The name champions league is false advertising

  81. Mr H 11 years ago

    I for one don’t want too be involved in English football where 99% of clubs run on an overdraft. Last time I checked Celtic were a debt free club and not spending hundreds of millions of bank money ;) remember we are 1 of only 2 clubs too have won the big prize with no foreigners and all those players were born within 40 miles of the stadium. What European football needs is a financial level playing field instead of clubs throwing X amounts of millions at a futile attempt at glory and then suffering years later like once proud clubs Leeds and Rangers

    • Milesey 11 years ago

      “”What European football needs is a financial level playing field instead of clubs throwing X amounts of millions at a futile attempt at glory””

      Totally agree with you on that point, for it won’t be too long now before we have a Russian team dominating the Champions League and European football.


  82. Mr H 11 years ago

    The same could have been said for most leagues on Europe

    England…Man Utd,Chelsea,arsenal and 1 other every season

    Spain… Barca,Real every season

    France..,Lyon and now PSG with their playboy loving owners

    Germany…Mumich,Dortmund,Schalke most seasons

    • Milesey 11 years ago

      Thats not always been the way though has it, over 100 years it’s always been RANGERS and CELTIC, no other league has had this kind of dominant teams over the same period….. Look back when the premiership was the old division 1, alot of them teams are now in the lower leagues.


    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Milesey, when Clydebank were in the Premier League in the late 70s and 80s Celtic and Rangers were often nowhere. It was dominated for a spell by Dundee Utd and Aberdeen then came the change for Rangers under Souness and finally Celtic go their act together when Fergus McCann bought the club.

    I agree with MR in that celtic over a period of time would indeed become a major competitor in the Premier League,they have a fanbase only surassed by the mighty reds of Manchester and that along with the revenue from being in the premier league would give them the financial power to be successful,this would result in them being able to attract footballs elite into their ranks as mancester united,city and chelsea do on a regular basis.They would struggle with the team they have right now but there is no doubt that would change after a short period of time.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Sean, and that’s one of the reasons Celtic won’t be allowed in. None of the current big four of big six want to potentially give up a Champions League spot to Celtic or even down the line Rangers.

    • gunner 11 years ago

      loooool if celtic come in prem league there be really bad just like liverpool ok maybe better than liverpool becouse there poool but scotish league is very poor league 2 lot better :) :) :)

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Gunner, if Celtic get into the English Premier League look at the TV money will have as opposed what they receive now. With that and 60,000 fans each week it wouldn’t be long before they become a force. As I said earlier that’s why they won’t get in. Turkeys don’t vote for Xmas.

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Poor Gunner getting shot doon form all angles!!…bang! bang! bang! :-)

      RANGERS definitely and maybe Sellick (if they got a manager with decorum like Jock Stein instead of the muppet they’ve got at the mo) wid do absolutely fine in the EPL..absolutely no doubt…the extra dosh, sponsorship, wages, appeal of playing in the league etc. Teams at both ends – the CL places and the relegation slots will ensure they never get voted in…the WBAs, WHUs, Readings, Fulhams etc will not want to jeopardise their place. Leagues by and large are dominated by the same 2/3 clubs the world over Ajax/PSV, Porto/Benfica, Real/Barca, Juve/ACM/Inter, Bayern/Dortmund, MU/Chelsea, Gala/Fenerbache/Besiktas…every club has their level…Rangers n Sellick are in that top echelon, never will be a place in the elite for Reading, Blackpool, Stevenage, Hartlepool Albion Rovers, Cowdenbeath etc..that’s just the way it is/they will always be lower league clubs!! I’d like to see some form of wages capping/financial restrictions in Europe…the basic principle is – IF YOU DON’T HAVE COMPETITION THEN THERE IS NO COMPETITION. U cant tell me clubs like Ajax, Bayern and ACM don’t have a role to play in the European Cup or should have a chance of winning it?..they have a role to play and not just making last 16 – but sheer financial clout is ruining it as a spectacle. The Americans realised this years ago with Americans football and addressesd it to make it competitive..fairly simple marketing every year the team that finishes bottom has first pick of the best rookies and works the way up from the bottom to strengthen the weaker clubs to help keep the competitiveness of it/people continue to pay to watch. No point watching if just becos eg Dallas Cowboys are the wealthiest and JR Ewing oil barron types can throw billions at it/can buy all the best players. Marketing experts spotted this years ago and the result is a healthier competition that people go to watch cos the result is not forgone..UEFA and Platini are starting to recognise this and hopefully make it a more level playing field with whatever they introduce to combat the deeper pockets than you scenario!

  90. Milesey 11 years ago

    This site is Brilliant, look through the old division 1, Huddersfield, Nottm For, Newcastle, oxford utd all winning the league…. THE GOOD OLD DAYS ;) ;)


  91. Craig alves 11 years ago

    hah quaity eh, no seen it on tv yet but nuhin will beat the fanny one hahaha

  92. Mr H 11 years ago

    When a nation has 2 clubs with such a majority of the nations football supporters then it’s harder for the smaller clubs too prevail and win titles. It’s different in England and most other countries due too difference in population and diversity of fan bases. There are 3 times as many people living in London as there are I’m the whole of Scotland. Scotland would have a more level playing field if there weren’t as many clubs in my opinion. 42 league clubs too a population of a little over 5m whereas England has 92 league clubs too a population of 50m. Scotland is unique in that our 2 main clubs have around 70-80% of the countries fan base and this contributes greatly too the dominance of the Old Dirm over the years

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Well Mr H as you and every Scot knows the history of this country has contributed to the affiliation and support the Old Firm has which unfortunately goes a lot deeper than kicking a ball and this ain’t the place to rake up all the crap thats associated with it. In that sense they aren’t a good benchmark for this type of argument and tbh, I think non Scots don’t really understand the social/religious/historical aspects and appeal of the OF. As an old lecturer used to say – to understand where we are now, now we’ve first got to understand how we got here!! Nuthing wrong with the number of clubs in my opinion, its football club is a social thing, a feeling of belonging that communities get pride from…where it goes wrong is paying out too much on small crowds and revenue that cant support it…basic balance sheets. Local Social Clubs support these clubs and are the backbone and focal point for many poor communities in Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland that should never been underestimated or discarded. Too many clubs are f/t when they don’t have the revenue to support it/pay the players too much. Look at Rosenborg in Norway, part timers with jobs and look at the relative success they’ve had over the years?…that’s the model that more British clubs with aspirations to progress should follow.

    • Danny 11 years ago

      isn’t that something with Rosenborg learn something new everyday I had know Idea they were part time I was under the impression that due to their mentioned success and also a good fan base there players were relatively well payed in comparison to the rest of Norwegian footballing standards mad shit

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Aye, apparently so Danny. Think the vast majority of Scandinavian teams are p/t…dare say there are full timers…but it just shows u?…maybe pissing aboot playing snooker and hengin oot in the bookies in stead of doing a wee bitta plumbing n joinery in the afternoon aint bad for ya!! :-))

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Guido, I thought Rosenborg were full-time although as you say most Scandinavian sides are part-time.

    • Danny 11 years ago

      that explains the somewhat low standard of some of the Scandinavian teams then aye in small doses it might no be a bad thing would be even better if it was considered a full-time job wae a good wage

  101. Craig alves 11 years ago

    aye stevie, irn bru adverts jist keep gettin better lke haha,
    did u see it on tv or on line. seen post on fb for 1st time this morning

  102. Dean 11 years ago

    St. Truiden’s home record this season has seen them notch up an impressive 9 wins and 4 draws and just 1 loss, scoring 25 times and conceding only 7.

    One of the reasons why they have such an enviase home record, is their remarkable ability to keep clean sheets.
    In those 14 matches, they have managed to keep 9 clean sheets. The home side have managed to keep EIGHT consecutive clean sheets now at home, winning 6 and drawing 0-0 in the other 2 , including their last home game.

    St Truiden are up against a team who’s form is in stark contrast. Their record of 0 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses suggests it is very unlikely that they have any chance of winning this game, scoring just 12 times and conceding 30.

    They have failed to score in SEVEN of those 13 games,and they have failed to hit the net SIX out of their last 8 games, including their last two.

    Considering that you have a team with an excellent home record and an ability to score goals and very rarely concede, especially at home – EIGHT consecutive clean sheets, facing a team with what can justifiably be described as poor and who struggle to score while conceding regularly, I think you’ve got to look at a bet on St Truiden to keep another clean sheet and extend their record to 9 consecutive clean sheets.

    St Truiden to win to nil looks like a good choice at William Hill 2.45 (Not necessarily the best odds, other bookmakers odds may vary)


    St Truiden to keep a clean sheet 2.15 William Hill (Not necessarily the best odds, other bookmakers odds may vary). While the odds are slightly skinnier, it covers the possibility of a 0-0.

    Like others on here, I like the look of Westerlo to win -1, and am considering doubling this with one of my recommended tips above

  103. the chief 11 years ago

    Im going slightly different bet today, instead of doing btts im taking over 2.5 goals with teams that are scoring goals readily


    AS Varese VS Novara
    Westerlo VS Dessel
    Egri FC VS Ferencvaros

    Good luck if your having a punt tonight

  104. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    Totally off the subject but just got my passport in the post. On the application I put my debit card details down for payment. They never took any payment yet they send my passport? Strange.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Chris, they’ll stop when you’re leaving the country. Better just stay at home.

    • Danny 11 years ago

      f**k that just phone them and pay the poxy ton imagine your in a taxi leaving Dumbarton to Glasgow airport get there and find out theres been a mix up with payment and validity of your passport and you cant get going your holiday to Canada it is if memory serves me

  119. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    Danny goin to Spain in May then Canada. I don’t think they can cancel the passport to be honest as its a legal document. They will prob just debit the card later or send a letter. Seems a bit daft they would send it out without payment though. See the kind of things you talk about when no interesting football up.

  120. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    Need to start to work on the six pack for the holidays. When in Canada in the shopping centres its a must to wear sunglasses so you can get a good swatch at all the birds, especially the college girls.

    • Danny 11 years ago

      aye defos mate ave never got my sunglasses off unless its necessary even then a get a good swatch ae the talent

  121. Danny 11 years ago

    I that’s a result Spain and Canada I it does seem strange they would do that usually with stuff like passports they would make sure they have been payed before sending it out as you say its a legal document and your expecting them to debit the card worst that can happen is you pay for what you wanted and if its free owell good stuff ano get allsorts a different convos going when theres next to nothing on would have thought someone would have mentioned a poker game or summit

  122. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    Anyway heads up for Fridays game

    £1000 San Marino 9-0 @ 500/1

    £1000 Ht San Marino Ft San Marino @ 500/1

    £500 ew Carlo Valentini first goal @ 500/1.

    What you guys think?

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Chris, I think that’s you’re spending money for Spain and Canada sorted. Why not double it with Scotland -3 and Mulgrew to score first.

  123. Danny 11 years ago

    a think your smoking crack

    got a few tips down myself for Friday and the single onit is san marino +5 @ 11/10 lol

  124. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    Was looking at Mulgrew at 20/1. I think the game has a draw written all over it to be honest.

  125. flyboivince 11 years ago

    need some goals to be scored in the 1860 Munich game did an over 2.5 n no goals yet after 45 mins on play not looking so good at the moment

  126. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    Mulgrew anytime 8/1 with Paddy Power is good

  127. Milesey 11 years ago


    Bet 1: Tubize (HOME) @ 2.0 (1/1)

    We begin in Belgium for a second division clash between Tubize and Vise. The home side are even money for this one and that screams value to me given their recent record on their own patch.

    Tubize are 11th in the league after picking up 34 points from their opening 25 fixtures. They are safe from relegation but also have no chance of promotion so the rest of their campaign will likely be geared at bettering last year’s eighth place finish.

    Felice Mazzu’s side have hit a bad run of form recently though – one draw and three defeats in their last four – however it should be noted that three of those matches were on the road. They lost their last game at home to Westerlo but that can be excused as they are challenging for the title. Prior to that it was just one defeat all season, with three victories in four.

    Vise are 14th in the league but they are only three points clear of the relegation play-off place. This must be considered a huge disappointment given that they finished fifth last term.

    Since the middle of November they have won just two of their dozen matches and lost seven. Away from home it’s three defeats on the bounce and six in their last eight.

    Bet 2: Solihull (AWAY) @ 2.7 (17/10)

    Our quest for an away win this week takes us to England as Corby Town play host to Solihull Moors. Solilhull haven’t had too many away wins this term but their opponents are pretty poor at home and I think that their price of 2.7 (17/10) has to be snapped up.

    Corby are down in 19th place in the Conference North, just one place and four points clear of the relegation zone. Three defeats in four hasn’t helped their cause and the two teams either side of them have a game in hand.

    Chris Plummer can’t take too much confidence into tonight’s match at Steel Park as his side have won just one of their last six there, losing four times. Aside from the1-0 win over Stalybridge Celtic, they have been shipping goals at an alarming rate – 14 conceded in their other five recent matches.

    Solihull are in 12th place but I think they’re too far back to challenge for promotion this year. After an impressive run from mid-October to the end of January things have tailed off a bit lately as they’ve lost seven of their last 10.

    Two of those victories were on their travels though and they’ve lost just seven of their 17 fixtures away from home this season. The Moors will also take a boost from the fact that they’ve won all three of their visits to Steel Park.

    Bet 3: Varese v Novara (Over 2.5 goals) @ 2.2 (6/5)

    Surprisingly we find ourselves in Italy for our goal fest this week but I have every faith in Varese and Novara delivering the goods, especially at a huge price of 2.2 (6/5).

    Varese are currently in fifth spot in Serie B which coincidently is where they finished last season. Obviously they will be hoping for better luck in the play-offs this time around, and that’s something that they’ll need as they are too far behind the top two to challenge for automatic promotion.

    As far as the goals go, only 14 of their 31 matches have gone over 2.5, although their games are averaging 2.61 goals each time. Interestingly though, five of their last seven at home have had three or more, and their last two results at Stadio Franco Ossola were 3-2 and 3-4.

    Novara are 10th in the league and that must be considered a disappointment given that they were relegated from Serie A last season. Nevertheless, a win from their game in hand tonight would see them move seventh, just one place and three points from the play-offs.

    Of their 31 fixtures to date, 11 have gone over 2.5 goals, but they haven’t failed to find the target in any of their last five on the road, including scoring six at Spezia and four at Juve Stabia.

    The goals have been flowing for both of these two clubs recently and three points this evening could prove crucial come the end of the campaign so I’m hoping for a bit of an end to end thriller.

    Bet 4: RBD Borinage v FC Brussels (Under 2.5 goals) @ 1.75 (3/4)

    We finish where we started as RBD Borinage take on FC Brussels in the Belgian Second Division. This match pits seventh v 15th and given the inconsistent results of the pair, the only thing I’m confident of is a lack of goals.

    RBD Borinage are safely secured in mid-table with not much to play for. They may have been able to challenge for promotion if they’d have started the season better – especially at home – but it wasn’t to be and they are destined for another year in the second tier.

    So far this season 15 of their 25 fixtures have gone under 2.5 goals, nine of which came at home. They have only played 11 times in front of their own fans so that means that over 80% have had two goals or less. Geoffrey Brion’s team have kept two clean sheets in a row in Boussu and they have only conceded more than one goal on one occasion.

    FC Brussels are down in 15th place and the main reason for that is that they don’t score enough goals. With only 23 scored this term they have the second lowest total in the division and they are going to need to improve upon that to avoid the drop.

    They won their last away match 3-1 but that’s the exception and not the rule as before that their previous six on the road had all gone under 2.5 goals. Their matches are averaging 2.46 goals per 90 minutes and 14 of their 26 have had two or less.

    Recommended Multiple
    Back Tubize @ 2.0 (1/1); Back Solihull @ 2.7 (17/10); Back Over 2.5 Goals in Varese v Novara @ 2.2 (6/5); Back Under 2.5 Goals in RBD Borinage v FC Brussels @ 1.75 (3/4); The Multiple pays approximately 20.79 (20/1)

  128. Mr H 11 years ago

    Scotland too nick a narrow 2-1 win on Friday, deliberating on whether to go with Mulgrew or Commons too score in a Scotland win

    ENPPI 2 up at HT, looking like a nice 13/2 treble

  129. Mr H 11 years ago

    1860 Munich 1-0 up on the first half my double aswell,could be a tidy day at the office *touch wood*

  130. David Paterson 11 years ago

    Put on mileseys tip of the 4 fold but went under 3.5 rather than 2.5 in the RBD BORINAGE game. Got 14/1 for that so wee £140 profit if it wins.

  131. Fernando Cardoso 11 years ago

    Well… my advice is keep your balance as it is… very poor day regarding football. Friday is the day.
    I’m still in shock after losing Tottenham and FC Porto last week… will be back tomorrow with some predictions. Have a nice evening everybody.

  132. Mr H 11 years ago

    Right! I’ve had a look over and after all the bets everyone has posted I still feel there’s a big chance in one game. My second and last tip of today hopefully as successful as the first.

    19:00 Germany u19 v Spain u19

    In Germany’s last 5 games they have scored exactly 20 goals

    In Spain’s last 5 games they have scored exactly 12 goals

    I’m going with

    Over 2.5 7/10 high stake


  139. Greg Browning 11 years ago

    Egri 1-3 Ferencvavros after 55 mins get my over 2.5 and over 3.5 goals tips up!

    Been a good week so far with Modena v Emplio finishing 3-2 last night!

    Westerlo -1 seems popular as does over 2.5 in the Novara game! Two singles for me!

    What the hell are you on gunner! Just like liverpool. When was the last time the gunners won silverware!

      hahahahaha, TOP JOKEY

      You can’t compare Liverpool to stevenage, we started in 1980 and look where we are now, League 1, have beaten Newcastle in the cup and a nice draw with Spurs with Bale playing. Don’t be an Idiot, we aren’t a big club.

      Joined the United Counties League in 1980 and enjoyed instant success; winning the United Counties League Division One and the United Counties League Cup in the club’s first year of formation. Following three promotions in four seasons in the early 1990s, the club were promoted to the Conference National in 1994. Despite winning the league in the 1995–96 season, the club were denied promotion to the Football League due to insufficient ground facilities. Stevenage were finally promoted to the Football League after winning the Conference National in the 2009–10 season. On securing Football League status, the club dropped the word ‘Borough’ from its title. Stevenage earned back-to-back promotions when they beat Torquay United 1–0 at Old Trafford in the 2010–11 play-off final.

      The club has also enjoyed success in national cup competitions in recent years, becoming the first team to win a competitive final at the new Wembley Stadium in 2007, beating Kidderminster Harriers 3–2 to lift the FA Trophy in front of a competition record crowd of 53,262. The club won the competition again in 2009, beating York City 2–0.

  145. Mr H 11 years ago

    Me F it’s like talking too wall when debating with our southerly neighbours, this is a nation that thinks they will win every international tournent they enter and then it ends in not so glorious failure. Maybe Gunners still smarting about Mr Larsson and how he changed the CL final too take yet another trophy out their clutches :) but Larsson couldn’t have been any good eh as he played in Scotland for 7yrs

  146. Seamus 11 years ago

    Boom! On yourself mr F and H

    Couldn’t agree more

  147. Mr H 11 years ago

    Milesey why explain yourself too a fan of a club who spend over £100m in 3yrs yet can’t get into the top 5 ;) Carrol,Henderson and Allen for £60m+ lol 3 Lumps of wood

  148. Milesey 11 years ago

    Our manager gets the sack after a 2 nil defeat to Bury, where as the Liverpool manager remains after defeat to Oldham in the fa cup, and another season of nothing…. our home crowds average 2 and a half thousand, 42 stevenage fans at Bury last night…. we aren’t a big club, we are the highest we have ever been in our history. Obviously the club wants more or they wouldn’t have sacked the manager, whats does that say about Liverpool sticking with the same boss?


  149. Gareth Dick 11 years ago

    St-truid 2 up already, deadly

  150. Gareth Dick 11 years ago

    Make it 3 ! -1 lookin very good

  151. Mr H 11 years ago

    3-0 now , lped onto them -2 after the 2nd went in at 5/2 :)

  152. dean 11 years ago

    I’m on St Truiden to keep a clean sheet so I’m hoping with a 3-0 lead, they’ll sit back on their lead and keep it tight at the back. Come on Westerlo, score already!

  153. Mr H 11 years ago

    -3 not -2 or it wouldn’t have been 5/2 lol if only

  154. Mr H 11 years ago

    Gunners went as quiet as the Emirates usually is on match day ;)

  155. Mr H 11 years ago

    Guido I was only using the number of clubs too explain that there wasn’t a big enough population for the other 40 clubs too attract enough fans which would generate enough cash for the provincial clubs too consistently challenge the OF in Scotland. Each and every club in Scotland has as much right as the next one too be part of league setup and I’ll argue the point with anyone who says otherwise. What right do I as a Celtic man have that a supporter of Annan,Elgin or anyone shouldn’t have? On the religious side of things I find it embarassing when I hear the chants that come from the stands in Scotland and it’s not just with the Old Firm where the problem lies. I’ve been subject of sectarian be up and down the country from Fir Park too Pittodrie. Hearts and Kilmarnock are among the worst places for a Celtic fan too visit. Too many supporters of other Clive try and state that the sectarian bile only comes from the OF

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Absolutely Mr H…we’ve got social/lack of tolerance/respect for others etc problems in Scotland that need addressed. Don’t think its restricted to our great country..but when you hear some of the stuff n read in the papers n ingnorant behaviour etc when you consider what great inventions/legacies Scots gave to the world..AG Bell, JL Baird, Alexander Fleming, Adam Smith, Charles Rennie MacIntosh, James Watt, John Macadam, Thomas Telford, Andrew Carnegie …..Mr Fixit.. :-) its embarrassing..we’re a lot better than that!!

  156. Mr H 11 years ago

    Clubs* not Clive lol

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      OK, but let’s not touch on sectarian problem too much. It will just bring the lunatics out.

  157. Mr H 11 years ago

    Harald Brattback was an accountant while playing for Rosenberg prior too his move too Celtic

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Mr H, should have stuck to his day job then.

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Hahah…Haralfd Vrattback..a name from the past….the BRATPACK were better crack tho

  158. Mr H 11 years ago

    Harold Brattback was an accountant while he played for Rosenberg prior too his move too Crltic

  159. Mr H 11 years ago

    Repeat post lol I hate the predictive text on the iPhone. Yeah he was awful at Celtic Paul. Before he came here he scored for fun including goals in the CL in the San Siro and Bernabeau etc. his pace and movement were excellent but he couldnae finish a fish supper whe in the hoops

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Did Harald the Brat no score the decider to stop us, :-)er I mean Rangers getting 10 in a row Mr H??

  160. Danny 11 years ago

    was it not Morten Wieghorst

  161. Danny 11 years ago

    haha he may have been in the team don’t hink he hit the decider but lack of sleep not bevy tonight

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Danny, anyway back to the footie and again a lot of these weird and wonderful teams have won or are winning again so hats off to those who flagged them up. I see Novara are leading at HT and Westerlo need another for the handicap bet to come in. Good call earlier from the guy convinced Sutjeska would beat Celik at a big price and of course there were earlier wins for Albirex Nigata and ENPPI. And I still think some of these are made-up teams – but hey they won and bookies are paying out. Good effort from everyone on a quiet week.

  162. alex walker 11 years ago

    But mr H. Its clubs like annan elgin and others alike that are holdin back scottirh fitba! Sorry if i offend any of there fans but if scottish fitba is to go forward then these teams have to play on there own!

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Alex, how are Annan and Elgin holding back Scottish football – don’t talk rot. They are insignificant in the grand scheme of things. A bigger SPL would help but you have to accept Scotland’s a small county with small TV audience and that’s the problem – and it’s one that can’t be resolved. Clubs should spend withing their limits, try to entertain and give kids a chance – that’s all we fans can ask.

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Alex – no sure whit yha mean there? how ya think Annan n Elgin r holding back Scottish fitba? do they not represent a community/perfectly entitled to take to the field same as any other club?

  163. Danny 11 years ago

    I Paul get some right good tips in times of limited cards a mind not to long ago u seemed a tad sceptical on the teams that sounded like made up nonsense possibly coming round the idea

  164. Mr H 11 years ago

    Him and Larsson scored in a 2-0 victory over St Johnstone at Celtic Park too win the league yeah but the game that swung the league our way that year was the 2-0 new year victory against Rangers where Burley and.a Lambert blockbuster from 30yds won the game :)

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Yeah I remember Mr H…that was Lambert trying to boot it oot the park n amazingly flew in the top corner..musta been something wrong wi the ball ;-)

  165. Mr H 11 years ago

    I won’t agree they are holding Scottish football back Alex. Scottish football needs a rethink from top too bottom and a new outlook on our youth setups. Take the Sky money and expensive foreigners out of English football and everything wouldn’t seem so rosey south of the border either

  166. Mr H 11 years ago

    Guido they must have used the same ball at Fir Park shortly afterwards as he dually repeated the feet not so long after from about the same distance if I rember right ;)

    • Guido 11 years ago

      haha..I never thot Lambert was capable of anything other than a side pass…bit like a crab :-) ach ya know Mr H, every dog has his day :-)

  167. Guido 11 years ago

    Alex getting itin the neck from all sides for the Elgin/Annan comment ;-)

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Guido, Bounty Punter is back. Check out his Palmeiras tips.

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Ill have a look Paul

  168. Matchloz 11 years ago

    How are westerlo and novaro doing anyone

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Matchloz, 2-0 Novara but Westerlo looks like finishing 1-0.

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Just notice that Westerlo goal by Bart Goor??..that’s a blast from the past Paul?..Belgian international/canna mind which clubs he played for assuming “B Goor” is him like?

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Guido, it’s the one and only. Must be nearly as old as me, remember being a star at Anderlecht.

    • Guido 11 years ago

      And me Paul…

  169. Guido 11 years ago

    This is the trouble with football nowadays….

  170. alex walker 11 years ago

    Am not talkin rot as you put it mr f. If the bigger clubs were giving more money to spend then the the players they buy would be of a better quaility. Is that now how it works in england were the big clubs get more money from sky hence they get better players. But to be honest scotland be 20yr behind england when it comes to playing fitba!

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Alex, do you seriously think what the likes of Annan and Elgin earn takes decent money from the top teams. What they earn from the league in prize money is peanuts. What Annan got last year will probably put diesel in a Celtic player’s 4×4 for a week. The problem’s at the top of the game but as I said earlier what do you expect from a small country in terms of trying to compete with the likes of England, Spain and Germany.

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Paul, the prizemoney widna even fill your 4X4 or pay your weekly expenses from Record oot at golf events/booze ups etc ;-)

    • Guido 11 years ago

      Alex – the bigger clubs in Scotland do get the bigger slice of the pie money…unfortuntely the pie aint that big/dunt have that much telly/sponsorship money in it! Dunt mean to say we shood get shot of the smaller clubs….f all to do with them/not their fault. Prob Elgin/Annan etc run on a total budget of £100K a season (or the equivalent of 6 months of Milesey’s bets :-) ) on crowds of 600/700 or so…give a lotta enjoyment to a lotta people..cant all aspire to winning the European Cup! Milesey – ya fancy buying a Scottish fitba club..cood be the Elton John of Anna/Elgin ;-)

  171. Matchloz 11 years ago

    Mr f. Was that waterlo winning 1-0?

  172. Mr H 11 years ago

    Well the treble was up earlier,2 Belgians have obliged in the 4fold and Juventade are 2 up with 10mins to so it leaves Atletico Minerio later for a decent day

    Hope yous all had a profit in some form or other

  173. Guido 11 years ago

    Muzza be gutter..Corby getting beat again

  175. Greg Browning 11 years ago

    Oh well, 2-0 Novara, 1-0 Westerlo ( over 2.5 and -1 goal) not to be! Had Novara to score 2 or more at 9/4 so just about covered my bets on the later games! Still a good day after Egri v Ferencvacos!

  176. weordie 11 years ago

    After last nights complete bombs tonight I’m gonna tip some over/under on the NBA. My double is going to be over 195 in the Toronto Raptors game and over 192 in the Washington Wizards game. The reasoning behind this is because none of the teams in these games are particularly any good on defense and I can see some very high scoring in the games.

    As an aside, being a Hornets fan, I may bet the under 188 in our game against the celtics because we’re not very good, missing our star man Anthony Davis most likely and the Celtics are missing Kevin Garnett.

    Arsenal nearly as rich as Barcelona in money but not trophies
    Posted on April 20, 2012 by admin

    Arsenal are one of the richest clubs in the world by KJ

    Forbes magazine have announced today that Arsenal are the 4th richest football club in the world. The top 5 are as follows:

    Manchester United ($2.27 billion)

    Read Madrid ($1.88 billion)

    Barcelona ($1.31 billion)

    Arsenal ($1.29 billion)

    Bayern Munich ($1.23 billion)

    This won’t be too much of a surprise to certain Gooners. We all knew we are an extremely rich club but this list puts it into perspective. If we look at that list, Arsenal almost stick out like a sore thumb. The other four clubs would be comfortably ranked as the four best teams in the world whilst Arsenal would just about make top 10 (I’m doing this article without my Arsenal tinted specs on). So, why do we have so much money and we still aren’t competing with the European giants?

    It is actually the lack of spending that has allowed us to accumulate this large amount of wealth. If we spend the astronomical amounts that the 3 above us have spent, we would be considerably lower in the rankings. We simply don’t earn anywhere near as much as the other three teams.

    Manchester United earns double what we do in commercial rights. They’ve done extremely well at landing lucrative sponsorship deals that ridicules what any other team makes in comparison.

    Real Madrid are one of the biggest brands in the world and have a massive following across the world. They earn extraordinary amounts in TV deals. Along with Barca, they earn triple what Manchester United earn. Tie that with the fact that they’re the most successful club in Europe and it’s almost impossible not to make lots of money.

    Barcelona are the best club in the world and hence are earning a lot from all their recent successes. They as mentioned before, earn extortionate amounts of money from TV rights.

    Arsenal are however on the rise. We recently built the Emirates and are starting to benefit from the increased revenue. We also have to renew our sponsorship deals with the Emirates hopefully significantly increasing the revenue we receive.

    We will still need to see investment in our squad and although we can’t compete with the likes of Barca and Madrid in terms of spending, we can certainly do better. We also have Alisher Usamanov whom I’m not a massive fan off, however, he is ready to invest money and was even quoted saying he’d pay for Goetze to come to Arsenal. He was actually ranked the richest businessman in Russia by Forbes today as well. As a shareholder, the club must assess whether his interests and money could push the team for European honours.

    I hope this news pushes the Gunners to spend more and ensure we are fighting for the title next season

  178. gunner 11 years ago

    why did you not add arsenal to the list :) :) next year will be great :)

  179. PartTimePunter 11 years ago

    Had a 4team accumulator to down the drain because I changed westerlo to win outright to the handicap!, every other team decides to win by more than 1goal except them..part of me wnts to die, even novara came thru!

  180. Matchloz 11 years ago

    Any late night footy tips

  181. gunner 11 years ago

    but my home town big club sheffield utd :) :) there was up at top of prem at one stage way before i was born :) :)

  182. Mr H 11 years ago

    Athleticism Minerio -1 KO 10.30pm Matchloz… I’m on the straight win but that’s cause it’s on a 4fold :) good luck finding a bet

  183. Milesey 11 years ago

    MR F, you putting up a thread for tomorrows football ?


    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Milesey, yeah will put it up soon.

  184. Dave 11 years ago

    Mr F any news on my wh issue ??

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Dave, they hadn’t responded on Monday but I’ve been off the last few days and not due back to the Record until Friday so hopefully there will be a reply waiting for me.

  185. Dave 11 years ago

    Guido, any tips for the south Americans tonight?

  186. Guido 11 years ago

    Linense n Palmeiras double hopefully Dave.

    • Dave 11 years ago

      how much are you staking? I know its bit of an odd q but I just like to gauage how confident you are on it? I missed out on a couple of cracking bets recently cus ive not had the bottle to put them on. I was wanting to put a 100 on Swindon game to be over 0.5 goals at 10/11 and once they scored I wanted over 1.5 at evens but I didn’t have the cahonas to do it doh!

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Dave, instead of stakes you should ask for a confidence rating from 1-10, that is 10 being supremely confident. Stakes are only relevant to the person involved as you only bet what you can afford to lose.

    • Dave 11 years ago

      yeah true, as ever mr f your full of good advice. Thanks.

      oh did you get an answer to my wh issue?

  187. Striker 11 years ago

    Guido, how confident are you about Linense? They’re 7/5 on in-play now, but from the stats i see they’ve not got any shots on target yet, while their opposition has got 4 shots.

  188. Guido 11 years ago

    Striker on form/stats they looked the call? ya know, loads of things look good on paper..even Camilla Parker Bowles maybe look alrite if she got the Hello magazine makeover…, ach on 2nd thots that’s pushing it a bit much…sh’d be more at home in the Horse n Hound/fit in well in the “old nags” section!! :-) Widna wade in if they are getting the run aboot of course

  189. Guido 11 years ago

    Im sure Bounty has good reasoning etc behind the corners etc..each to their own but not for me tho/too random. Fitba shood be about goals. Not a fan of bets on bookings n sendings off n so on…negative stuff..

  190. Striker 11 years ago

    Cheers Guido, no worries. I noticed Bragantino down 1-0 to Oeste and it was 5/6 for BTTS at H/T, I was still trying to justify whether the take it and they’ve gone and bloody scored.

  191. Mr H 11 years ago

    Well Minerio came through late on too complete the 4fold pn top of the treble so a good day all round. Cheers to those who pointedly in the direction of ENNPI and the others for me too look into the stats it’s very much appreciated ;)

    Over and out for tonight and look forward too another day tomorrow on the bash the bookie quest
