Football tips

  • I have never understood why so much was made of the Bill Shankly quote about football being more serious than life and death. Never fathomed why it has been repeated so often. Shankly was a fantastic football manager and manager of men. I do wonder if, were he alive today, he'd think again about that quote.

    Today football is mourning the loss of that rare beast, a foreign owner of a club who actually cared about football, the community of Leicester as a whole and who was in the game for the right reasons. There are many owners who . . .

  • Following the midweek matches, it looks as though the Champions League this season is wide open. At least for a fair number of clubs.

    Tottenham and Manchester United let down their supporters and can kiss goodbye to being involved in the final stages of the competition.

    But Liverpool and Manchester City won and top their respective Groups. You can get 2/1 about the tournament winners coming from England.

    Atletico Madrid have disappointed this season and were well beaten by a Borussia Dortmund side that are being overlooked so far this season. They have won all their three matches, scoring . . .

  • When a prodigal son returns to a former club, does destiny dictate that player will score? It often appears that way.

    Cristiano Ronaldo must surely get a warm welcome from Manchester United supporters as he returns to Old Trafford in the colours of Juventus.

    He was never going to be able to score as many goals in Italian football as he did during so may years with Real Madrid. He has, however, kept himself extraordinarily fit, so ensuring that the young man who long ago graced English football, will continue to play at the highest level at an age when . . .

  • Domestic action returns this weekend following an international break that saw England beat Spain in a feisty and fascinating game that saw England win 2-3 with the youngest England starting 11 since 1959.

    The first time Spain have conceded three goals in a competitive game. First competitive home defeat for Spain in 15 years and the first England win in Spain in 31 years.

    All credit to Gareth Southgate for the way he manages players, encouraging the likes of Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford.

    The level of abuse aimed at those players from armchair managers in recent times has . . .

  • Experience has taught me that there is rarely, if ever, such a thing as a 'free lunch.'

    But this weekend I will be using my 'free bet' from Paddy Power. I got my stake back to use again after four of the five teams won for us last weekend, but one let us down.

    Tottenham, Wolves, Chelsea and West Brom all delivered. But Leeds United could only draw with Brentford. From all accounts, they were fortunate to do that.

    All has changed at Brentford this week. Manager Dean Smith has left for a big pay day at Aston Villa. I . . .

  • As punters we can all sometimes be guilty of having our glass half empty. Of fearing the worst. On Wednesday evening I sat watching the scoreline come in from Nottingham as Forest led a Millwall side 2-0. A Millwall team that even their own supporters have said is fairly hopeless.

    Nottingham Forest formed the second leg of my 8/1 midweek/weekend acca. Leeds had already won for members at a good single price of 23/20. Forest led 2-0 at home with only twenty minutes remaining.

    They conceded two late goals. The Millwall equaliser coming along in . . .

  • I’m updating the midweek football tips sent out to members earlier on Saturday. For three reasons.

    Firstly to bring you up to date with the 7 winning football tips from the weekend.

    Secondly because I was stupid and overlooked some midweek league games to go along with the Champions League matches mentioned earlier.

    Thirdly because of the Manchester United defeat at West Ham on Saturday. A result which might have repercussions. 

    The 1-1 draw between Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United on Friday night was the first winner of the weekend at odds of 5/2.

    On Saturday West . . .

  • It's Saturday and we've already enjoyed the first winning football tips of this very weekend.

    The 1-1 draw between Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United on Friday night. The draw tipped up to members at odds of 5/2. Two spectacular goals. Did you see them? If not, check them out. The Owls goal in particular was something special.

    Leeds United look a good side on and off the ball. I'm content with my pre-season bet on them to be promoted. So far, it's looking good.

    Local derbies often end in draws, as do Champions . . .

  • As far back as I can remember, footballers have fallen out with their coaches and managers. It really is nothing new. Over the decades there have been some spectacular disputes, including punch ups, between players and their bosses. In days of old, they were covered up. A 'nothing to see here' approach was hard to contradict in the days before everyone was a photographer or cameraman and before footballers shared their daily existence on social media.

    Clearly Paul Pogba has fallen foul of what a friend of mine who has worked at Chelsea for many years says is the biggest . . .

  • The midweek winning bets included the draw between Ipswich and Brentford at a nice price of 11/4. There were also wins for Leeds at 10/11, Atletico Madrid at 4/5, Middlebrough at 5/11 and both teams to score Liverpool v PSG at odds of 4/9.

    Sheffield United could only draw so let down one of my accumulators. Cristiano Ronaldo getting sent off and Shakthar Donestk failing to win their game brought down the other one. Such is life. Onwards.

    So who still fancies Manchester City to win the Champions League? Not me. But then I'm . . .
