  • My generation of football fan despairs of the increasing efforts by the wealthier clubs to get rid of FA Cup replays. Just listening to what a replay at Anfield will mean for League 1 Shrewsbury Town confirms that, for those outside the top two divisions, a Cup replay against a big club can bring in enough cash to make so many improvements. It can be a lifeline.

    The top clubs, of course, would get rid of the League Cup and the FA Cup if only they could. They want more Champions League games and a Premier League reduced to 18 . . .

  • For more years than I can recall, I have often tipped a draw between Chelsea and Arsenal. It has paid out several times.

    I tipped them to draw in midweek at odds of 3/1 and Arsenal fought back to secure a 2-2 draw despite being reduced to ten men after former Chelsea defender David Luiz was sent off.

    The English midweek fixtures produced lots of goals and some crucial wins. Especially so for Premier League teams trying to avoid relegation.

    Bournemouth secured a rare win. Aston Villa scored a 95th minute winner against fellow relegation candidates Watford. That . . .

  • A 16/1 winning accumulator rounded off a profitable weekend of football tips for members of VG Tips. Nottingham Forest came from behind to beat Luton Town 3-1. Forest were the fourth team in my English/Scottish accumulator. On Saturday, Rotherham, Clyde and Ayr had already won. The first winning accumulator in 2020, it won’t be the last.

    Single winning bets also included Norwich winning for only the fourth time this season at odds of 6/5. The draw between Tottenham and Watford at odds of 13/5 was a nice return. Sunderland won again and this time . . .

  • Watford won for members of VG Tips at odds of 9/5 last weekend. A good price for a revived team that won comfortably against fellow relegation candidates, Bournemouth.

    The both teams to score betting market can be a profitable one even when the price on offer is an odds on one. Brentford versus QPR and Barnsley versus Huddersfield delivered for us on that front, each at odds of 3/4.

    Doncaster Rovers won for us at odds of 31/20, Portsmouth won at odds of at 1/2 and Exeter City returned further profit when winning at odds of . . .

  • It's been a ludicrously busy period of football south of the border. It's widely accepted now that football teams are being asked to play too many matches. But, of course, money talks and the richer clubs, along with those who supposedly run the sport, don't believe in the saying that more is less.

    I am struck at how football is putting quantity before quality at the very time that the British Horseracing Authority is foolishly considering extending the Cheltenham Festival from four days to five (a festival that should have always remained at three days). When will . . .

  • Has the FA cup lost it's lustre? Is the magic still there? Clearly not for many managers. You can't really blame those from overseas. The FA Cup is not in their DNA. Why should it be? They may hail from countries where domestic cup competitions are not as all important as the FA Cup has been for me and my generation of football supporter for by far the majority of my lifetime.

    Those clubs that do still take it seriously, and field strong teams, have a serious opportunity of winning silverware. True, the days of a Wigan or . . .

  • So that's that then. It's a done deal. Many bookies have already paid out on those who backed Liverpool to win the Premier League. Before January dawns. Incredible!

    Last summer I fully intended to be one of those punters. I fancied Liverpool to win the league and Manchester City for the Champions League. A role reversal on the previous season. Then, when it came to my writing up the pre-season tips back in August, I changed my mind. I have no idea why I did that. I cannot recall. But I have been kicking myself for so . . .
