Football tips

  • As I write I am listening to a radio phone-in show awash with football supporters saying what a disgrace it is that the so called big clubs in Europe want to break away and set up their own Super League (aka Greedy League). This moment has been coming since football sold its soul to Rupert Murdoch thirty years ago.

    The fans of those big clubs are, of course, hypocrites. Chelsea fans ignore the fact that their club is owned by a man with blood on his hands who has used the West London club to launder money. Manchester City . . .

  • The Champions League is shaping up to deliver us two semi-finals worth watching. Real Madrid v Chelsea on Tuesday April 27th followed by PSG v Manchester City the following day.

    Although I am no fan of the man management style of Zinedine Zidane, you have to say he has an enviable record of not only getting Real Madrid to the final, but also winning it. He’s come a long way since acting as assistant to Carlo Ancelotti at Real. This season the Spanish club has been a tad fortunate to get through the qualifying stages but now we . . .

  • Last weekend went well on the betting front. 6 winning tips from 9 selected. Wins for Barnsley, Bolton, Bournemouth, Norwich, Chelsea and both teams to score for the match between Spurs and Manchester United.

    The last match delivered the unedifying sight of Son Heung-min playing dead on the floor following the slightest of contact from an opposing player. Son stayed down - as instructed by Jose Mourinho - and the goal Manchester United scored thereafter was ruled out by VAR because Son had been fouled. Not shot by a revolver at close range!

    Son went down, and down in my estimation . . .

  • The Champions League knockout stage made for interesting watching in midweek. It only seems like yesterday since I was hearing English football fans or journalists saying that the Spanish La Liga was a poor competition these days. And yet up pop Real Madrid to outplay Liverpool, beating them 3-1. Granted, Liverpool have been a shadow of their former selves this season due to multiple injuries. But they were swept aside by Real Madrid who could yet win another Champions League for manager Zinedine Zidane. The both teams to score bet paid out for myself and some of you.

    Likewise . . .

  • So what do we know about the state of play in the English Championship before the season is completed? Well, it looks as though it will be Norwich City and Watford to be promoted automatically as the top two. Watford have now put nine points between them and a stuttering Brentford, who are reminding me of a golfer with the so called 'yips.' To blow promotion once is forgivable. To possibly do so the following season is not.

    Down the bottom, Wycombe Wanderers have a chance of not finishing bottom. They have played one more game than Sheffield Wednesday but . . .

  • The International break is over with and England and must be happy that Gareth Southgate's side have acquired nine points from nine. It's quite some time since an England manager was blessed with such a choice of good players to pick from. English footballers who would, in some past years, have been selected to compete in the European Championships and the next World Cup, will not be in the final squads. So blessed with choice is Southgate in certain positions. It's worth remembering that things could have been much worse had not Sam Allardyce been caught out . . .

  • Well done to my friend north of the border, Robert, whose winning tips last weekend included the 3/1 bet for Dundee United to beat Aberdeen, along with St Johnstone to win against Ross County.

    For my part, my FA Cup tips for Southampton to win at odds of 21/20 and Chelsea to win to nil at 20/21 paid out. In the Championship, Watford won for me at odds of 8/15. In League two, after many years, I broke my Walsall hoodoo and got them beat by Bolton at odds of 5/6.

    The one bet I . . .

  • The domestic season enters its closing stages and there are some crucial games in the English lower leagues this weekend. It seems clear to me that some players in sides set to be relegated have already decided the game is up. That they are destined to be playing in a lower league next season and the good ones among them already have their agents busy on the telephone trying to get them a deal with a better club next season.

    Newcastle United could drop out of the Premier League. They play at Brighton on Saturday, 24 hours after relegation rivals . . .

  • What a sorry state of affairs the city of Sheffield is when it comes to football. Sheffield United have just parted company with their manager Chris Wilder. The born and bred Blade has done such good work at Bramall Lane across almost five years. Last season, once promoted back to the Premier League, they overachieved on a grand scale. Before this season began the club did make some rubbish signings. Whether they were all the choice of Wilder, who knows these days. So many football club owners rely on 'advisers' as to which players they should buy. Some take on . . .

  • Congratulations to Rangers on winning the Scottish Premier League. When you consider the unimaginable mess the club was in off the pitch only a few years ago, winning the title so comfortably this season heralds a major change in fortunes for the two Glasgow based clubs. Now it's the turn of Celtic to rebuild.

    I do wonder if, over in America, the owners of Liverpool FC are looking at the achievement of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard and wondering if they should snatch him from Rangers and have him replace Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.  I am not saying it should . . .
