I didn't know you could still get pens.

Yep, they even gave me a pen. They seemed ever so happy when I wrote down the selection, the market and the odds all on one piece of paper at the first attempt.

I felt really special.

Europa Cup. korals are offering 9.0 on Liverpool and they are a teeny bit adrift of the market. Teeny though and nothing to get excited about.

I am not sure. I am getting old and my eyesight is going. They could have taken a Poalriod photo of my written slip.
