Football tips

  • Here we are at the beginning of February and the transfer window has closed. It wasn't a busy one but may have been significant for a handful of clubs. Those that needed to strengthen their squad to prevent relegation and those clubs that want to secure automatic promotion or make the play offs.

    Crystal Palace made a good acquisition taking Michy Batshuayi on loan from Chelsea until the end of the season. The player wanted to go to Spurs but there was no way Chelsea were going to permit that, not with them and Spurs chasing what is now . . .

  • The past weekend went well for myself and members of VG Tips.

    7 winners from 10 selections.

    Wins for Manchester United at 21/20, Grimsby 2/1, Luton 13/10 (NAP), Sheffield Wednesday 9/5, Wolves 23/10, Sheffield United 4/11 and both teams to score Norwich v Leeds at odds of 4/6.

    The lack of one goal by Aston Villa scuppered the four teams to win accumulator but because I placed that bet with Paddy Power, I get the chance to go again. And I do!

    I'm getting in early for this week's football tips . . .

  • We had a good last weekend and midweek at VG Tips. The five teams to win accumulator paid out at odds of 8/1. The bet combined weekend wins for Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest, Leeds and Barnsley with a midweek win by Arsenal. Hooray!

    We began the season with a 35/1 winning accumulator and have suffered some near misses in recent weeks. I'm glad that one paid off and I'm hopeful for my own 13/1, four teams to win accumulator this weekend.

    The most recent winning single bet was the draw between Crystal Palace and Southampton . . .

  • Who’d be a football manager? A lot of people, it seems.

    There is never a shortage of applicants for vacant roles as Head Coach or team Manager. Yet the job can drive men a little crazy.

    The Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri lost his cool last weekend, claiming his players were hard to motivate. Even the usually mild mannered Chris Hughton was in trouble with the authorities for criticising referees.

    Football is taken far too seriously these days, especially by those in the game and those who cover it. As the plane tragedy that saw a talented 28 year old . . .

  • Wins last weekend by Southampton at 3/1, and Swansea at 2/1, were most welcome on what was a day of surprising results.

    Some managers leave nothing to chance and Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa confirmed this week that he has "spied" on every opposing team prior to Leeds playing them this season. This brought about some truly ludicrous media coverage and mock outrage from the likes of Paul Ince and Dean Saunders. Based on their record in management, I would suggest Bielsa has forgotten more about how to be a successful coach than those two gents will ever know . . .

  • The winning tips last weekend included:- Doncaster Rovers at 7/2, Accrington Stanley at 13/8, Brentford at 8/15 and both teams to score in the matches between QPR and Leeds United and Charlton v Sunderland.

    Managerial changes can make a difference when it comes to betting on football clubs to win games in the immediate aftermath of a change of team coach.

    As I write, Stoke City have appointed Nathan Jones as their new manager. Jones leaves Luton Town to take up the role in the Championship.

    Luton were promoted from League 2 to League 1 last season . . .

  • The FA Cup is not what it once was. Not even the 3rd round, which takes place this weekend.

    Time was these matches kicked off at 3pm on a Saturday and non league clubs had a great chance of beating league opponents.

    This year you can watch all the games on television live. If you live in America that is!

    Angus Loughran (who some of you will still know as 'Statto') is a sports journalist I respect from way back. Of this FA Cup development he said:- "This is probably the sole reason for such a staggered 3rd Round weekend . . .

  • My age group of football supporters remember the era of proper wingers.

    One of the best was Liverpool’s Peter Thompson. I was sad to read of his death today. In 1996 I interviewed him at length on camera and he was as great at talking as he was beating defenders and putting in dangerous crosses in an era when Liverpool FC were a force in the top flight.

    How I wish he had lived until May in the hope of seeing of Liverpool winning the Premier League.

    This week could be a turning point for the Anfield club. In . . .

  • The winning football tips on Boxing Day included QPR at 8/11, West Brom at 4/7, Leeds United at 8/13, Luton at 3/4 and Exeter at 10/11.

    Once again, the accumulator fell to earth for the sake of one goal. Leeds, QPR and West Brom all did the business but I added a draw between Bolton and Rotherham. All was going well at 1-1, but then beleagured Bolton went and scored a winner.

    Having placed that bet with Paddy Power, my stake was returned as what they like to call a ‘free bet.’ So I . . .

  • Manchester United thrashing Cardiff City was the least surprising result last weekend. I tipped 11 football bets over the weekend. 8 paid out for me and members of VG Tips. Read all about them here https://vgtips.co.uk/8-winning-football-tips-from-11/

    Managerial changes made between when I tip or we place our bets, and the next match for that team, can be a killer. While the exit of Jose Mourinho happened in time for me to confidently predict United . . .
