after the recent " shock" results outside the premiership  think it is time to go with the unexpected  as going with the obvious so called  good things you would be dining on pot noodles  in the poor house by now my  bets for next saturday taking on the hotpots  are as follows
reading v wolves ....a lay of wolves and a smaller win on reading
portsmouth v southend ...lay  pompey ....smaller win on southend
rotherham v shrewsbury .....laying rotherham ..win bet shrews
walsall v gillingham ..........laying walsall .......smaller win gills
wigan v bradford .........laying wigan ...........smaller win bradford
league 2
chesterfield v exeter ....laying exeter ..........smaller win chesterfield 
luton v cambridge .......laying luton ...smaller win cambridge

lowish level  stakes and see how it goes ,cant be much worse than backing the odds on certs over the last 4-5 weeks shirley

have laid man ure tonight home to  stoke ! probably throwing away my dosh here as stoke are in dire form ! but a new manager has been appointed (paul lambert ) and that sometimes has a positive effect, also stoke have avoided defeat in the last 3 times the 2 sides have met ........... no suprise if united  hammer them but at 1.24 i am taking them on in the hope that the potters can nick a point

bet lay man ure at 1.24

good luck amigos !

when i first mentioned them on here three days ago they were 1.44, obviously i didnt lay them then Cry.
Report everyone's a winner January 18, 2018 7:12 PM GMT
yes but favourite prices often shorten nearer the off. so i usually leave it until near the off to lay, whereas backing is the opposite. if they have a strong team out then on paper they win, we all know that, though i think 1.44 would be a lay for me no matter what, in the circs, i.e 1st leg, away, in a cup tie v a team in same league who are not that bad etc. earlier today they were 1.65 or so iirc

i generally leave it to as late as i can to lay but every now and then that doesn't pay off, i.e missing the 1,44 price tonight. but the EPL is completely different, no way arsenal will be fielding any 2nd team there. and most other top european leagues are the same
Report everyone's a winner January 18, 2018 9:08 PM GMT
i've only just looked at the saturday epl because of our discussion but immediately i think before any of us think about arsenal, we need to concentrate on chelsea's price at brighton as it kicks off earlier. that's odds on away from home after 3 0-0s v a team that is good at home and will take massive pride in not losing this

Report everyone's a winner January 18, 2018 9:39 PM GMT
i will bide my time but at the moment that's a screaming lay to me but of course i'm tempting fate by posting too soon and in any case it will shorten more i think, so i certainly wouldn't wade in now. plenty of time to consider. part of me wonders if it wouldn't be profitable to just lay every odds on team in a league as competitive as the epl is now, with a careful staking plan but that's only a recent thought, so don't read too much into it

Report jollyswagman January 19, 2018 9:33 AM GMT
i was safely tucked up in bed so didnt green up either. as stated we got lucky with a late goal the day before so no complaints.

the fact that real madrid dont need to win the return leg may well make them a lay again for me. leganes will probably be content to sit back, keep it tight and hope to nick a goal late on.

expect the unexpected and good luck gents.
