    He’s not everyone’s cup of tea but I have always found Charlie Adam to be a straight talker when...

  • Midweek winning football tips included:- Lucas Joao to score anytime for Blackburn at odds of 14/5. Southend to win at Coventry at a generous price of 13/10. Monaco win at 33/20. Accrington Stanley win at 4/6 and Juventus win at 7/10.

    As I write we have the latest managerial sacking. Sorry, I mean departure by "mutual consent." What a nonsensical phrase.

    Chairman to manager: "You're fired. Here's your compensation, now bugger off."

    Manager: "OK, thanks very much. Tara."

    Steve Gibson, one of the more responsible football club owners, will have a new manager . . .

  • Alfie Mawson scored again for members of VG Tips. This time I tipped the Swansea City central defender to simply score at any stage of the match at Hull. He did that for us at odds of 14/1. It's only a few weeks since he scored the first goal for me at odds of 30/1. So Alfie has certainly boosted the football profit of late in what is proving to be a very good season for those of us at VG Tips who bet on football.

    The other successful football tips last week were:- Burton Albion winning . . .

  • Did you see that Barcelona comeback against PSG? Or did you go to bed thinking the game was over?

    I am glad I stayed up, even when PSG scored an away goal that seemed to kill off the match. It didn't. A passionate fightback by Barcelona saw them secure the most astonishing victory of this season. Some classic Luis Suarez play acting, and two very dubious penalties helped Barcelona to an improbable aggregate victory. Neymar was fantastic for Barcelona and Messi as influential as ever. Strange how Barcelona had been inconsistent - at least by their own high standards - in . . .

  • The winning tips last weekend were:- Stevenage to win at 23/20, Both teams to score Huddersfield v Newcastle at Evens, Leicester win at 4/5, Aston Villa at 5/6, Harry Kane to score anytime at 9/10, Sergio Aguero anytime goal at 4/6.

    I await a bookie paying me out on Chelsea winning the Premier League. They're home and hosed to my mind and if I say so myself, I'm proud of the two bets I placed on them to win the league back in the autumn, before the shrewd Antonio Conte had got hold . . .

  • Luck plays a part in the life of any punter. Good and bad.

    My 7/1 midweek treble paid off for members. The bet saw Stevenage and Bury win for us, along with both teams scoring in the match between Brighton and Newcastle.

    Newcastle battered Brighton in the second half of the match in which they were trailing 1-0 with 80 minutes on the clock. Newcastle won but did so via one of the luckiest goals you'll ever see.

    It was a nice little midweek earner for me and members. I played safe in midweek. I'm not . . .

  • Soon after I last sent you football tips, Claudio Ranieri was sacked by Leicester City. And, what do you know? No sooner had the man they cried crocodile tears for left the building, but the Leicester players rediscovered the will to win. What an amazing coincidence! Their cynicism and hypocrisy turned my stomach, as members and non members alike can read about here.

    They may well now go on to overturn the 2-1 scoreline from their first leg Champions League game against Sevilla. I . . .

  • So my hope for a Chelsea v Manchester United FA Cup final has gone down. I had waited for the most recent draw before placing a bet on that tie. Just as well. The two teams will meet in the next round and Jose Mourinho will return to Stamford Bridge. That should be an interesting encounter.

    Arsenal got past non league Sutton United with a 0-2 victory and now face the other non league survivors Lincoln City, on March 11th.

    There are no Premier League matches until next weekend. I look, therefore, for potential midweek value in the Championship . . .

  • So Arsenal fans now want the head of Arsene Wenger on a plate. And, come May, they'll probably get their wish. The woeful capitulation against Bayern Munich in midweek appeared to prove that the manager has run out of ideas and that some of the players have downed tools.

    I don't know why fans are surprised about Mesut Ozil. He also had a very good first season at Real Madrid, but faded the longer he was at that club. History has repeated itself at Arsenal. Ozil had the best goal assist record when he was at Real Madrid . . .

  • I am forever asking members to follow me on Twitter. Not because I lose any sleep over the number of followers. But because that is where I divulge any late information or tips. The tweets might be about a race meeting being called off, a tip being a non runner or - late in the day - a football bet I fancy.

    Inspiration might hit days after I have sent out the football tips post. Or I might like a bet I hear from another tipster. The latter is rare (I prefer to follow my own form study), but can happen. And . . .
