[b]IN THE WORDS[/b] of my two eccentric uncles The Pet Shop Boys: “It’s a… it’s a… it’s a… sin.” No it’s not. It’s a bit of harmless fun. Gambling that is. We’re not all as rich as we’d like and we haven’t got a bottomless pit of cash. Spending money on gambling, however, is often seen as a massive sin. Next time someone harps on about what a ‘waste of money’ gambling is and how you’d be much better saving it or spending it ‘more wisely’, show them this. All prices are accurate-ish circa July 2017. [b]What can £100 buy you nowadays? [/b] 30 pints of beer - the equivalent of at least four hangovers and an increase in waist size, baggy eyes and a red nose 14 packets of cigarettes - not that good for you the last time my butler ‘Daft’ Frankie...

[b]HELLO[/b], good afternoon and welcome to my latest blog. I’ve been chilling in the home counties since I got back from my little trip to the Bahamas as both my castles in Scotland are currently being renovated in time for Hogmanay (I’ll be flying between each in my helicopter at various parts of the night just to make sure everyone’s being properly entertained. I’ve got some of the lads from the Bay City Rollers playing at one, and two – hopefully three – members of Runrig doing a couple of numbers at the other). My third castle – in Spain – is currently out of action largely due to the fact that large parts of it have had an attack of Verdigris and I’m having difficulties getting the right quality of obreros in. To ensure there'll be no unwelcome visitors, a small ...

[b]HELLO,[/b] good evening & welcome to my latest blog. Something very weird happened when I last threw a couple of tips out from the East Wing of my sprawling country manor house. They both lost. I'm rarely lost for words, but... ... ... ... ... ... ... I digress. I've been suffering some pretty tough times of late. I had to get shot of the vacuum cleaner (to be fair, it was only gathering dust), I had to play a game of snooker behind enemy lines (more about this later) and my football team of choice hasn't won a league match all season. So, about the snooker. I was recently invited by a dear relative of mine (yup, he cost the best part of a million to buy) for a few games of snooker at the local Conservative Club. Obvs, this went against all my extreme socialist principles...

[b]HELLO[/b], good afternoon and welcome to my latest blog post. I received some crushing news this morning. I subscribe to Wrecking Ball & Demolition Weekly and it arrived with a thud on my velvet doormat. I digress. As I’ve been particularly busy lately, sorting out minor criminals with the type of justice generally only meted out by superheroes in capes, I haven’t managed to help you all out with my words of wisdom as often as I’d like. What I have identified, however, are two tremendous tips for this weekend’s football and snooker. I know you hang onto my every word like a bat on a branch so I’ll keep it short and sweet today as kick-off time is rapidly approaching and while I have an ego the size of Stephen Fry’s brain I would never deprive you of pre-match drinking ...

[b]HELLO,[/b] good morning and welcome to my latest blog. Snooker has to be the most sedentary sport in the world. The contestants are even lazier than darts players. Let’s face it, how many times have you seen a darts player ask the ref for a rest? Furthermore, the dress code has got to be the most bonkers of all sports. “Mum, I’m just off for a game of snooker with my mates.” “Okay son, don’t forget your waistcoat, bow tie and ridiculous spats.” [b]It also features some of life’s more bizarre eccentrics.[/b] Dechawat Poomjaeng, for example (the one who looks like Pixie out of the old TV series Monkey), was described by Stephen Maguire as ‘not the full shilling’. That’s pretty extreme if you ask me. Put it this way, if I was ever on Who Wants To Be A ...

[b]HELLO,[/b] good afternoon & welcome to my latest blog. I’ve always found that following Henry Hill’s sage-like words of wisdom have stood me in good stead for most things. He once told me: “Never rat on your friends and always keep your mouth shut.” I’ve since added one more thing to the above: “Never hire plastic shoes.” Tour guides in Turkey are a bit like internet search engines – they never take you where you want to go at the first time of asking. I somehow ended up on a gorge walk through Saklikent gorge in Turkey the other week and as I didn’t want to damage my pair of John Lobbs I was forced to borrow the most ghastly pair of plastic rhythms you’ve ever seen in your life. Couple this with the fact that I’d upset some of the locals down the road in...

[b]HELLO,[/b] good afternoon and welcome to my latest blog. Once again, apologies for the sporadic nature of my posts, but my life has been as unpredictable as the British weather of late. I had to spend a week holed up in Monaco recently as a good friend of mine who owed me a favour invited me over to his mansion with a view to spending a bit of time at the Monte Carlo casino. He reckons I bring him luck, so I didn’t need much persuasion to hop on a plane and join him for a few sessions on the roulette tables. [b]After three quarters of an hour I’d accumulated enough chips to give Harry Ramsden a run for his money,[/b] so we spent the rest of the week variously living it up in La Note Bleue, sunbathing on Larvotto beach and chilling on one of my friend’s yachts moored at Monte...

[b]HELLO[/b], good evening and welcome to my blog. Exciting times are ahead, followers, for we have not one, not two, but THREE system bets with which to get involved tomorrow (Friday). [b]EACH[/b] fixture is in the Russian Premier League, where goals are as rare as rocking horse doo-dah. The following three matches all comfortably qualify for the ‘under 3.5/any unquoted correct score’ system, providing of course Betfair deigns to offer the necessary markets. [b]TAKE[/b] a look at the recent goalscoring – or lack of it – for the sides contesting the following matches and it makes for grim reading. It takes me back to my schooldays when the teachers were trying to make me read The Old Curiosity Shop when all I was curious about were the contents of the top shelf of the paper...

[b]HELLO[/b], good evening and welcome to my latest blog. I hope it reaches you well. You'll all be delighted to hear that the second published 'system' bet finished [b]Cherno More Varna 1 - 0 Beroe[/b] and won us all a bit of cash, to the tune of another delicious 15 per cent profit. [i]That's two out of two so far, with plenty more to come.[/i] Stay tuned for more system bet recommendations over the next few days, from both new systems outlined in my blog yesterday. Good luck and happy punting! Remember: knowledge and inside information is power
