All season long we have been odds on in most of our home games .I was away last week so never saw any betting on the pats game ..Tonight we are 3.55 , now i know we are playing poor , yet I'm tempted by that price ..We need to stem the downward spiral , maybe tonight Trevor will allow his players play to win rather than to draw ...I think this is a bet ...If allowed to express themselves with flowing football , which we have seen very little of since the derry game , and yes we are capable of playing attractive football when the manager lets them get on with it ..I think he can now have no more doubts left that 5 4 1 does NOT work ...Hopefully this system of his will now be put to bed for good ....

Can you also confirm that I am as far as you know somebody else, because I mow know how God feels about Richard Dawkins, it is not nice to have your existence denied and recently people even animals have started to act like I am not there, I feel it is affecting me at a quantum level, but can we leave it at that because peeps are always going off topic in and trying to derail our LOI threads.

Janey Spankingthemonkey aren’t you the serious man.

Thank you Workrider for the acknowledgement of my being, I couldn’t see my reflection in the mirror going to bed last night but I was able to shave off three days growth this morning, bad Karma for not telling the proper facts about Saratoga, but  I had to wait for confirmation from the Betfair legal deptament that there is a statute of limitation on certain matters before I could tell the story about how my search for the truth about the self led me to meet Rocketfingers for the first time.

It was the last days of the British Raj and Rocket  was serving his time as an apprentice Mahout, under Sur Ali Fur Ghee, the greatest Elephant Football trainer of all time. I had at that time had abandoned apostasy and the pleasures of the flesh and was studying the Spirit under Ali  Er Cashgun the greatest Fakir and Guru in all of India, anyway Cashgun liked a bet and we used to visit the Elephant stables to see the teams be put through their paces.
It  twas there I met Rocket and we used have a wild old time sitting under water for up to a week or two  at the time and other such larks. Our good times came to an end though when in the last minutes of a tense Bombay derby with the score 0-0, Rocket came on as a sub Mahout and in the words of Ali Cashgun,  missed’ the biggest sitter since Buddha’  and me  the two Alis and many others done their wads. 
Rocket ended up with an obscure League of Ceylon side ,there were whispers about irregular betting patterns,  that he had laid his own team on here and made a Monkeys time a Monkeys Portugee Gold Dollars, about 200k nowadays.  I used to post on the forum under the user name Sir Ian in them times, but none of you will remember  that as there was only Ruyard Kipling, Devilfish and myself on the forum at then. We used to telegraph our posts into Bletchly Park and they used to enter them into the Enigma machine on a card thingy which would print them out and then each post would be telegrammed out to the other users and we used to paste them  into different ledgers for each thread.

Earlier in the thread you accused the Intelligencia of sneering at Richters & Co.

I ask you to to consider Richters post of 17.33.  Is he or is he not sneeering at the good people of Ballymun?  And sneering at those of lower income than him who gamble in more affordable amounts?

He dishes it out, therefore he is fair game. I don't think he needs any of your condescending sympathy.
