NO wonder the Boomtown Rats had a massive hit with I Don't Like Mondays.
I usual don't mind them but if they were all like yesterday I'd hate them.
My woes started with Andy Murray making a miraculous comeback at the Australian Open from 2-0 down to level at 2-2 with Roberto Bautista Agut in what could still be his final match.
I'm convinced anyone watching Agut would have cashed out the 3-0 and 3-1 Super Singles for almost full returns but as far as stats go it's 10 points added to the losses.
I hoped to recoup something on Man City and both to score but an early red card for Wolves killed its chance and the Top Treble was a loser too – so the stats are something I'll be looking to improve drastically in the second half of the month.
So I've had better days and hopefully Tuesday will be one of those. We have three FA Cup ties to look with potential for shocks especially at Blackburn v Newcastle and Luton v Sheffield Wednesday.
Kevinmac has posted a Blackburn preview and is tipping a draw. I expect Newcastle as usual to be seriously weakened for a cup game so I'd take Rovers not to lose as long as Tony Mowbray puts out a strong line-up.
Same goes for Luton who are still managerless but won at the weekend under caretaker Mick Harford. Depending on strength of line-ups you'd fancy Luton not to lose.
Elsewhere there are a couple of games in Spain and France. Another side not to lose could be Angers at home to Bordeaux. They've been beaten just twice at home and drawn nine.
The cup games in Spain are second legs with Valencia trailing Girona 2-1 and Valladolid 1-0 down to Getafe. Could be two more tight games.
Decided to go with a fourfold on Blackburn, Luton and Angers not to lose and adding Porto -1Ah at Leixoes in the Portuguese Cup. Again line-ups are key but if Porto go strong should win with plenty to spare.
Well done to all the winners last night including kevinmac who tipped Gabriel Jesus to score first on his Man City preview post.
