Football tips

  • There are a thousand and one football podcasts out there, available to those who like to listen rather than watch. Many good, informative and entertaining ones. A new one I alert you to is called 'The Price of Football.'

    If you want proof of where the game of football has gone wrong, listen to episodes 1, 2 and 3.

    The latest episode deals with the owners of Manchester United, the dastardly Glazers. They borrowed 770 million pounds to buy Manchester United Football Club. As football finance expert Kieran Maguire says: "They didn't have a bean. The American banks they . . .

  • Sometimes it pays top be bold. To bet on what many consider the unexpected.

    Saturday's more obvious results were anything but. A few went against me. But, come Sunday and Monday, two of the football bets I suggested that were available at odds of 3/1 did pay off.

    Manchester Unuted got that draw with Liverpool, which few thought possible. But more often than not I've backed that fixture to end as a stalemate. Another season passes without Liverpool winning at Old Trafford.

    Pre-season I tipped Sheffield United to stay up in their first season back in . . .

  • Thankfully we return to domestic action after an International break that brought with it some surprising results and appalling scenes on the terraces in Bulgaria.

    Credit to Gareth Southgate. The England manager handled the situation well and spoke candidly and honestly about how England's black footballers were able to handle the abuse they received because they have grown hardened to it on home soil. A sorry state of affairs and a sad truth.

    Having watched football as a spectator since the 60's, and covered for newspapers and television from the 70's, I can recall fine footballers such . . .

  • So managers are losing their jobs and it's only October!

    Barnsley Football Club could not find it within themselves to thank the popular with the fans Daniel Stendel for his service, most notably getting the club promoted out of League 1 last season. A fine achievement, all things considered. Officially, Stendel resigned. The brief statement from the club did not include any of the usual thanks to the outgoing manager. It was, frankly, rude and lacked class.

    The form of the team has suffered after an initial promising opening game of the season when they beat Fulham. They haven . . .

  • Take a bow Robert Ryan. He offered seven tips for football in Scotland last weekend - and all seven paid out. Some effort.

    I have been following Robert Ryan on Twitter for a few years. I noticed how good a punter he was on football in Scotland and in England. Clearly Robert loves his football and has a keen eye when it comes to spotting value in the betting market.

    So I asked him to come on board and offer his own betting selections for matches in Scotland. After all, knowledge is power and Robert is clearly knowledgeable about football across . . .

  • And to think some people ask why I don't bet on games played in the League (Carabao) Cup!

    How about League 2 Colchester United beating Tottenham? Or a Manchester United side, including World Cup winner Paul Pogba, failing to beat in 120 minutes League 1 Rochdale - at Old Trafford.

    Perhaps the top ten clubs in the Premier League should be allowed to opt out of a competition that has lost its importance and which they no longer take seriously. Sadly.

    There were also some surprising league results last weekend. Especially so in England.

    But QPR won for us at . . .

  • Who takes your penalties was so simple back in the day. At Chelsea, for example. Up would step Frank Lampard and the only shock would be if he didn't find the back of the net from the penalty spot. He almost always did. Likewise James Milner at Liverpool.

    Going further back in time, you could rest assured that Bobby Charlton would score penalties for Manchester United while Francis Lee would, when fit to play, take the responsibility at Manchester City.

    Now, at some clubs, it's as though we are back in the playground at school. Players squabble with . . .

  • Last weekend saw both teams to score bets pay out in the games between Wolves and Chelsea at odds of 4/5 and QPR against Luton Town at odds of 8/13.

    There were also winning tips for VG Tips members via my selections for Sunderland to win at odds of 23/20, Leeds to win at Barnsley at 4/7 and for Bristol City to heap more misery on Stoke with victory at a very nice price of 13/5.

    In Scotland, Roebrt Ryan selected both teams to score for the Friday night game between Arbroath and Partick Thistle . . .

  • We're not going to retire on the returns - at least I'm not - but I was happy that the 'dirty dozen' 12 teams to win Euro 2020 International accumulator paid out. Two members of VG Tips found a best price of 3.7/1. I got a little less than that as I am persona non grata with the bookie Peter and Alun were able to bet with.

    After all these years of profitable punting, my online bookie options are very much reduced from the old days. Only two still welcome my business on a regular basis, largely thanks . . .

  • Last weekend saw Leicester win for us once again, this time at odds of 3/4. Leicester City under Brendan Rodgers look set to finish in the top six come May while their opponents last weekend, Bournemouth, are going to struggle.

    The Under 2.5 goals bet for the match between Newcastle and Watford paid out after the two dismal sides drew 1-1. I would not be surprised should both those clubs be relegated come the end of the season.

    Man City to score over 1.5 goals in the first half of their match against Brighton also delivered . . .
