It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of our wonderful friend Paul Jain, aka Mr Fixit, at the age of 55. 

Paul took ill at home on Saturday and was taken to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where he was cared for by the fabulous staff in the intensive care unit.

Unfortunately his condition was inoperable and he passed away peacefully on Thursday night with his family by his bedside.

Paul was our leader here at MrFixitsTips and we will miss him greatly.

We are truly heartbroken.

Over a 10-year period Paul cultivated a vibrant, active community that drew in people from all over the world. The outpouring of well wishes for him this week has been overwhelming and a testament to his popularity.

Most people on this site never had the pleasure of meeting Paul in person but those who did will assure you that he was every bit as funny, humble, patient and kind-hearted in real life as his online persona.

Even in death Paul had hoped to give life to others through the planned donation of his lungs and kidneys for transplant but unfortunately in the end this wasn’t possible.

Paul was a gentle soul who took everything in his stride with grace, good humour and humility. He was immensely talented, hugely respected within the betting industry and will be completely irreplaceable.

Paul will also be sorely missed by his friends and colleagues at the Daily Record where he worked for almost 30 years on the sports desk. He was a regular fixture in the paper, under the guise of Mr Fixit, in his ever-popular betting column.

Every Friday he would take in a hamper of snacks to share with his colleagues, summing up once more his huge generosity of spirit.

He loved the company of his friends, whether it was over a beer, a chat on the phone or a chance encounter and will leave a huge gap in the lives of those who knew him.

Paul had many passions in life: his beloved Clydebank FC, beating the bookies, a round of golf, a good pun and the occasional Leffe Ruby but none came close to his family, on whom he doted and loved deeply.

Above all of Paul’s qualities he was a devoted and loving husband and father. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Linda, daughter Katy, son James and his extended family at this difficult time.

Rest in peace Mr Fixit – you were the best!


We will announce a fund-raising initiative in Paul's memory in the next couple of days to support some worthwhile causes that were close to Paul's heart.

Has been a pleasure interacting on this great site for the past 5 years or so. He’s done so much for the community in his contributions to this site alone, and has enriched literally thousands of people’s lives all around the World. He always had time to help people.

    I actually can’t believe what I’m waking up to read. I’m extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Paul. My thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family during this extremely difficult time. As a follower of his site from the very beginning, Paul brought a whole community together. Not only did he share tips and advice but he’ll also be remembered for bedding the bookies arm when punters voices were not heard in order to make the pay out after unfair decisions. I just can’t believe this at all. One thing for certain is that Mr Fixit (Paul) would have absolutely wanted this site to continue. I’m sure he’ll be keeping an eye on us all and will still be watching his beloved hankies from the heavens. God bless his family xx

    This is heartbreaking just want to say for years I suffered with agoraphobia and deep depression and I come across this site near on 8 years ago betting gave me the feeling and emotion of hope and fun again and the community gave me somewhere to have some social interaction from that I’ve gone and got and held a job for 5 years and almost back to myself in no small part to this site and mrF I never meet you Paul but you had. Huge impact on my life I can’t express my gratitude and I want your family to know you did that for me without even knowing it you probably saved my life, rest in peace see you on the other side where hopefully I can shake ya hand and buy you a drink god bless.

    He took great pleasure in helping people, especially when it came to turning the bookies over and he’ll be sorely missed.
    I’ll even miss him telling me about the Bankies!

    What can one say at a time like this, words are never enough. All I can think of is thoughts are with the family at this difficult time.

    I can’t profess to have known Paul personally but have met him on a few occasions in the past, once at a St. Mirren v Clydebank game and a couple of times in pubs in “the toon” and fully concur with others comments that Paul was a very decent human being.

    Perhaps we should all take time to reflect on that we are only passing through here and to make good of the time we have. One quote that my dearly departed mother always used that gives me comfort when I think of her is. “the man upstairs made plenty of time, all we ask from him is our share of it”

    Rest in Peace Paul

    That’s all, Gordon

    Absolutely gutted to wake up in the North East of Scotland this morning to hear this sad news, my thoughts are with Paul’s family and friends today.

    This website is a fantastic legacy to the man who is Mr Fixit, thousands of members, many who have been here for years and I have been proud to be part of the community. Paul was a fair man, not frightened to give anyone on the site a”wrap on the knuckles ” if you crossed a line, no matter if you were a regular or a newcomer, of which I fell foul of myself once several years back.

    I never met Paul, but feel I knew him like a mate, you will be sorely missed and may you rest in peace.

    Legend is a word overused these days but Mr Fixit is a legend in the sports betting industry.

    I’m honoured to have been apart of Mr Fixit’s team – he was my inspiration to take up sports betting writing.

    Besides being a legend as a professional, Paul was a funny, generous and kind person. He was so talented and he always took the time to give me advice.

    He truly was a gentle giant, and one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met.

    Although I never met Paul I class him as a friend and a mentor. In the early days on the site he taught me (and anyone who wanted to listen) how to enjoy a bet and make the experience more profitable with his points system, different bets, covers and general advice, things which we all take for granted nowadays, he’s helped me and others out with “bookie problems” in the past and seemed to give his time freely to help others who didn’t have his clout. We’ve lost one of the genuine good guys and will be sadly missed. I know how I feel at the moment so I can only guess what it is like for Paul’s family and close friends but please accept my sincere condolences. Goodbye big man.

    My most heartfelt sympathies to Paul’s family and friends at such a horrible time.

    Like many on here, I never met the man but it kind of felt like I knew him after reading his words for the last 9 or 10 years.

    He created this great community of random strangers with common ground: a passion for football and the urge to making it that bit more interesting by sticking it to The Man (in this case the bookies).

    May you rest in peace big fella and long may this fine community of kindred spirits you’ve created prosper.

    Awful news. Mr F has spent so long creating a great community on here and it’s shocking to see that headline as the page opens up.

    Even more devastating when it comes out of the blue the way it did.

    I’m certain we will all let your legacy will live on though the page.

    I am not sure I can add anything that hasn’t been said but it was so sad to see this message come up on the forum. Mr F came across as a kind, patient and fair man, always willing to offer advice to all. It is the mark of the man that so many people, from good friends to strangers, have taken the time to comment on here and social media. Sir you came across a gentleman and my heart goes out to your family and friends (and the dug). Rest in peace and thanks for your kindness and dedication.

    such shocking sudden news, had little interaction but seemed like a very fair man and much more given all the tributes he is receiving. seemed to have many passions and lived doing what he loved, now may he rest in peace.

  148. crofty 3 years ago

    RIP Paul like so many others have commented I never had the opportunity to meet Mr F but having been coming on here for the past 6/7 years I felt he was a friend from having interaction with him and the site. I’m not a big poster but I’ve learnt so much about staking and betting from him and many others on the site.
    Condolences to his family and close friends hopefully seeing how people felt about the main man on this site will give them some small comfort.

    Very sad, sad news.I can’t describe how I feel right now! Although I’ve never met Paul, and I rarely comment on the site. But this site has been a part of me for more than three years. Wether I bet or not, I still come on the site to see the tips and read the comments. So, it feels like I know Mrfixit personally. I rarely cry when I lost someone, but when I read this sad news, I shed a year! May his wife and children have the strength to bear this loss.Rest in peace Paul.

    I feel devastated by this news, same age as myself, far too young to be taken away from his family and friends.
    Obliviously I never met him but in some way I feel I’ve lost a family member.
    I’ve been posting here not far from the sites inception and in all honesty I’ve never heard him disrespect anyone without provocation.
    Struck me as the type who would have your back in any situation once you got to know him.
    A kind, gentle giant of a man by all accounts and I will miss him greatly.

    A sad day. Thankyou so much for sharing your knowledge here Mr F. So many winning occasions that are now life time memorable occasions. Can I make a suggestion that we donate a percentage of our next winning tip from the site to Mr F’s family or a charity of there choice. Just a suggestion. Let’s see if anyone in admin can pick up on it please. I for one will donate all of my winnings from my next bet as a token of appreciation however I suppose its down to individuals. Like I said….. Just an idea.

    The amount of comments on this thread is testament to the man himself who was followed and respected by so many not only from his native Scotland & England .Ireland and Wales but he had a community that seemed to have stretched across the globe judging by this thread. Going to miss reading his posts on a Saturday morning his SuperSingle and treble picks which have been a fixture i have enjoyed for well over a decade each Saturday with my morning cuppa and your posts that often ended with the remark ”Off now to walk the dug before heading to watch the game at the Bankies”, thankyou sincerely Mr F you touched more people than you realized. God Bless.

    • 3 years ago

      My thoughts exactly Sean. Always checked the tips on a Friday and first thing every Saturday morning for the last 9 or 10 years. Writing them down on the back of my football sheet. Still can’t believe he won’t be there with tomorrow’s tips. Like everyone im still in shock. Well said again Sean.

    Since the news broke a few days back, it was clear that Paul’s condition was serious. As a result, many of us feared this would happen but hoped and prayed that it wouldn’t. Now that it has, the sense of sadness and shock across the orbit of Paul’s influence has been immense, and I am so very sorry that such an ebullient character is no longer with us.

    My very best wishes and condolences to all who knew him well, his friends, and of course his close family; particularly his dear wife and two children.

    May God bless you all at this crushingly sad time.

    Rest in peace Paul.

My stomach churned when I read headline, like most didn’t know him but felt like we were friends. Exchanged many emails about football and golf.
    2020 started badly and is going to finish even worse. My condolences to his family and close friends.
    I’m privileged to have sort of known him.

I am truly gutted at his passing and my thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family at this sad time. Thanks for the memories. You’ll Never Walk Alone “Mr Fixit”. Micky from Derry.

Mrfixit was a generous man, not a magician,he was here to help not to guarantee winners. There is a lot of people here betting every day with no idea about the teams they are betting on, have a think before betting, Paul u taught me that around 8 years ago, thank you so much u probably saved my life because at the time I was betting on every footie match going. Best wishes to your family. Rest in peace.

    I really can’t believe that Mr fixit has passed away. I remember I came across this site round about the world cup 2014 and Mr fixit went on a run of 19 super single wins in a row. Some record! I remember the regulars of Jordan, Greg, har-preet!, raa-lcja and others. Mr fixit built this fantastic community and long may it continue in his memory. RIP Mr Fixit.

  259. Parcelona 3 years ago

    What absolutely devastating news about Mr Fixit. Like many others have said it feels like losing a mate such was his writing style and the way he interacted with everyone on the daily threads.

    Looking through the comments people have left it truly shows what a special guy he was – it was quite overwhelming reading them such was the genuine depth of feeling he engendered from folk all over the world.
    Not many can say they have that in their locker.

    My heart goes out to his close friends and family.

    Rest well Paul ✊

  276. chumpchange 3 years ago

    Everything that needed to be said has already been done so by others.
    Part of Paul’s legacy can be seen by the sheer amount of comments and condolences on the site. The community spirit on here always been strong and I see no reason why that will not continue.

    Thinking of Paul’s family and closest friends at this time.

  277. robertc 3 years ago

    I remember a cold April morning about 5 years ago heading out for the train to work and checking in to Mr Fixitstips, probably to see if Jordan had posted anything tasty to get on that morning, A-League or such like.

    The news nearly took me out of my shoes…. Mr F had sold the site to Harpreet (long term members will remember) “much loved West Midlands based tipster to take over….” or words to that effect. I remember literally stopping to read it again, doing so again when I reached the platform…..was this really happening?!

    It was only when I settled into my seat and the train pulled away I realised….it was April 1st!

    I remember looking out the window smiling “you got me there big man….!”

    I, like most here, never met Paul or even spoke to him, but it’s funny how those little interactions stick with you.

    So much has changed in the intervening years…gone from having a one year old obsessed with Peppa Pig, to a 6 year old obsessed with Pokémon, 2 house moves, lost my grandad, and spent the best part of the year working from our box room…..but this site and the daily posts from the old familiar faces and the back and forth – it’s been a happy constant throughout it all.

    That’s testament to what Paul created for all of us here. I don’t post as much as I used to, but God bless you all.

    And God bless Paul, his family and loved ones. Xx

  278. philwindy 3 years ago

    RIP 🙏 Paul. Your personality is what attracted people here in the first place and the way you set the tone. Such a void will be sorely missed and never forgotten. Anything Paul was in support of, i am sure will be backed by this community in honour of Mr F.
    Thoughts and love to his family and friends in their time of heartbreak 💔

    Condolences to them and all who knew him.

    I only knew the Mr Fixit persona and he never ignored a request for help in regards to bets but from messages i reckon this extends to help in any sphere of life.

    Thank you for all help and the platform for insights to football betting

    I’m so sorry to hear this news… sad day
    Thoughts and wishes to the family and I hope this website lives on ….

  286. Jointhedots 3 years ago

    To see so many tributes only epitomises the huge footprint that Paul has left in this wonderful community he built and this can be clearly seen through the many touching tributes paid to a gentlemen that most never met. My personal reflections take me back over 20 years when Paul was writing his Mr Fixit column on a Saturday in the Daily Record, which was the first thing i looked at. Then i discovered this fantastic forum which he and others gave us a voice as well as researched football knowledge to gain from.

    Nothing left for me to say that hasn’t already been said.

    If there is truly a heaven, then there must be a bookmakers in it or Paul will have something to say about it.

    R.I. P. Paul and look behind you my friend and you wont see the end of the line of admirers.

    Some few years ago, I came across Mrfixitstips ‘ site by chance, and I have been glued to it ever since. I live in Hungary, so I had no prior knowledge of the person who behind the name Mrfixitstips. I was shocked to read a few days ago that he had taken ill, was in a serious condition. I immediately thought of the evil non-visible enemy Covid!
    Just reading his response to commenters did give you an insight into what a great soul he had had.
    May his soul rest in perfect peace. Amen!🙏

  293. Yaap88 3 years ago

    RIP Paul (Mr. F) I’m one of many who never had the pleasure of meeting you in real life but even through this site it was obvious how brilliant of a person you were

    I’ll never forget when I used to work in a bookies and one regular punter would always come in with these big 9/10 fold football bets with selections from all over the place, one day I asked him where he comes up with them all and he said it was from the advice and tips on this site

    I had a look for myself and since then have been proud to be a part of such a wonderful community, not just for all the wisdom of the various tipsters and punters but also for the banter that’s had(often between complete strangers)

    Paul’s family should be amazingly proud of what a wonderful man he was and I offer my deepest condolences to them in this horrible time

  294. bigoldunit 3 years ago

    Awful news, will be sorely missed.

    I unfortunately never met Mr F in person but would like to say the he always came across as a true gentleman, one that would go out of his way for others and someone people could reach out too with there betting problems doing his utmost to resolve them no matter how big or small. Been a part of this community since my late teens for a lengthy time after finding the website by chance, I would like to say a massive thank you for the fantastic platform that has been provided over the years and allowed so many of us to develop our knowledge in the betting game. I remember having so many questions on here in particular when I first started and Mr F being so helpful and welcoming providing great insight. Everyone on here is treated the same from the newest member to the oldest which is only one reason the community has grown exponentially over the years and will continue to do so.

    Thank you and RIP Mr Fixit!
