  • Allow me to scream. Let me get this out of my system. I DON’T BELIEVE IT!!!

    No sooner had I finished typing up my World Cup analysis and tips for members of VG Tips - which I have been doing from dawn and for 12 hours - then Spain sack their national football team manager 24 hours before the tournament begins and two days before Spain play their opening match against Portugal.

    What kind of tournament suicide is this? Yes, I know the governing body of Spanish football was annoyed that, having signed a contract extension with them only last month . . .

  • Well that went well for us. Wales to beat Belgium at odds of 5/1 was a great winning tip for members. And Paul Pogba at 3/1 was my NAP anytime goalscorer bet for France when they played Iceland. Two tasty returns for me.

    While those were the good price winning selections, two safety first bets also paid off.

    France simply to win against Iceland paid off at odds of 4/9. And my cautious approach in the Germany v Italy game also proved to be a wise move. Germany simply to qualify at 4/7 was another profitable . . .

  • So it's Quarter-Final time at the European Championships.

    England went out of the competition with the worst performance I have ever seen from men wearing the three lions on their shirts. And, believe me, that is saying something.

    Usually in any game you can point to a period of time in a match when England have played well, put pressure on their opponents or come close to scoring.

    I could not find one redeeming feature about that performance, or the tactics employed by Roy Hodgson. He had no choice but to resign.

    But now that's out of . . .

  • So here we are, at the last 16 stage. It's been an interesting tournament and one that is hotting up. The 3-3 draw between Hungary and Portugal has been the most lively game so far. Hungary have surprised many people and it's great that Wales, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and England are through to the last 16.

    Portugal not going all out for a win against Hungary, and Iceland scoring an injury time winner in their game, ensured that England will no play the smallest nation at the tournament, Iceland.

    Perhaps this is a chance . . .

    By on 11th June 2016

    So the tournament began with a late win for the hosts, France, against Romania.

    A cracking last ditch strike from the talented Payet ensured France got all three points. West Ham will be fortunate to hold on to Payet. Clubs from around the world will be sitting up and taking notice of him.

    At the time of writing, on Saturday, England have yet to play Russia and Wales will come up against Slovakia later in the day.

    Saturday

    Long term followers know that I tend to avoid betting on England. Experience has taught me not to trust them . . .
