[b]HELLO[/b], good evening and welcome to my latest blog. I don’t know if any of you have ever played any football management games, but to sum them up they’re just like women. They beckon you in with the prospect of a more exciting life, you become addicted to them, you enjoy a few highs and lows (as opposed to kitchen table mediocrity), then they dump you on your backside just when you think you’ve sussed them out. Besides, once you’ve managed Crawley Town to the European Champions League final (I have the screenshots to prove it), the only way is down. I digress. My local cricket combo, Lancashire, have just achieved promotion back up to the top division of English cricket. When they finally got their winning runs, the crowd of 23 (two umpires, the groundsman, 18 members of...

[b]HELLO,[/b] good morning and welcome to my latest blog. I hope this reaches you well. Please accept my usual apologies for not being in touch, but I had a date with a belly dancer in Turkey the other week. I’m not saying she was ugly, but she had a face like a witch doctor’s rattle. Still, there were benefits to be had as one of the local madmen (‘Agitated’ Abdul Arslan) invited me on a few trips out off the coast of Dalyan. There’s only so many pieces of Turkish Delight you can eat off a woman’s stomach, so once I’d blown her out it was time for a razz down to Iztuzu beach, followed by a bit of cave swimming and a jeep safari. The driver of the aforementioned was almost as mad as Abdul, which is saying something. He reminded me a little of Baldrick out of Blackadder,...

[b]HELLO,[/b] good morning and welcome to my latest blog. I visited a good friend of mine the other day. He lives in one of those big old mansions where the painting above the dinner table has eyes that move and all the bookcases have secret passages behind them. He puts on the odd wine tasting evening now and then. When I say ‘odd’, I mean ‘weird’. You have to dress up as one of your favourite book characters while you’re there. I’ve variously turned up over the years as Timmy the dog out of The Famous Five, the giant peach out of James and the Giant Peach and Zaphod Beeblebrox out of The Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy. The latter elicited a few chuckles I can tell you, especially as my extra head was an actual ‘Kraftwerk’ robot head from their 1981 tour of locations...

[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 afternoon & welcome to my latest instalment of punting advice. You'll notice that I've not been blogging as much lately. This is largely due to Grouse Season being in full swing and my penchant for getting out in the cold and doing a bit of shooting. I do of course love a bit of roast grouse in the autumn too, served with bacon, blackberries and roast pumpkin in a rich garlic suace. Fills the belly and keeps the vampires away at a stroke. What's not to like? I digress. [b]P is for points[/b] All betting banks are composed of points, which are effectively a substitute for money, but simplified into 1-100, regardless of how much or little your bets are. Betting bank points are, therefore, percentage points and when a tipster recommends you place one point on a particular...

[b]SORRY[/b] it's been such a while, followers, but my shrapnel wound was playing up so badly I had to cut off my own leg. That wouldn't have been so bad, but the blood made an awful mess on the Axminster. Mrs69 wasn't too HP at all and if it hadn't been for the quick thinking on the part of my latest butler, Kevin 'The Gerbil' Klijsters, who recommended a thick foam of six parts Vanish to one part water, I fear my marriage might have been over. He applied the solution while I applied the tourniquet & Mrs69 went off in the huff. I digress. [b]O is for Odds[/b] Odds are the chances you have of winning, according to the bookmaker, i.e. the person or organisation ‘laying’ the bet. Yes, there’s a fair chance you already know this, but like any skill you need to have a solid understanding...

[b]HELLO[/b], good morning and welcome to my blog. I hope it reaches you all well. The first bet as part of my own personal 1.1-2.0 challenge was on tennis player Gael Monfils in the Mercedes Cup. He hammered Victor Hanescu at a tidy, no hassle price of 1.16 and this represented the first rung of the 1.1-2.0 ladder of riches. Bet number two, which was in the region of 1.2, came in comfortably during Sunday's World Matchplay Darts where James Wade mullered Jamie Caven 10-0. Selection number three comes tonight at the Empress Ballroom, Blackpool, where [b]Wes Newton[/b] faces Justin Pipe in the second round of the World Matchplay Darts. Get on Newton at [b]1.31[/b] before his price shrinks even more for another winner & the third successful rung of the ten-step ladder to riches....

Bet number two, which was in the region of 1.2, came in comfortably during yesterday (Sunday)'s World Matchplay Darts where James Wade mullered Jamie Caven 10-0. I'm currently scouring the sporting markets for bet number three, which will of course be circa 1.3. I'll duly post it in plenty of time for you all to get involved. Congrats to those of you who have so far benefitted from the first two selections. Good luck & happy punting. Remember: All...

[b]HELLO[/b], good afternoon and welcome to my blog. You may remember that my first bet as part of my own personal 1.1-2.0 challenge was on tennis player Gael Monfils in the Mercedes Cup. He romped home against Victor Hanescu at a tidy, no hassle price of 1.16 and this represented the first rung of the 1.1-2.0 ladder of fame and fortune. Bet number two, which will be in the region of 1.2, is now available for you all to get a piece of, ladies and gentlemen. It comes in tomorrow’s (Sunday) World Matchplay Darts in the Wade/Caven match. [b]Wade will make short work of this one and is justifiably hovering around the 1.21 mark right now[/b]. Get involved in order to complete the second part of the 1.1-2.0 challenge. Good luck & happy punting. Remember: darts for darts sake, money...

[b]HELLO[/b], good afternoon & welcome to my blog. Just a quick update on the 1.1-2.0 challenge for you all. Gael Monfils came through his tennis match earlier safe & sound for a nice, easy 16 per cent ROI. Congrats to everyone who followed the tip. A recommendation in the region of 1.2 will follow later this week as we move through the gears up to 2.0. Good luck & happy punting! [b]Remember: she who slags off successful systems stays skint[/b]
