Heavy night last night.SillySilly

Plenty of water and had a power nap.CoolCool

Can see my money for Jah was matched @ 2.6 while i was sleeping @ 2pmLaughLaughLaugh

Can see my lay of James @2.14ish was matched.

Can see Maloney drifting because people can't hold on to their nerves until later.

Just saw Jah dropped to 2.3 from 2.48 just when i was about to dump some cash on @ 2.48.

Jah and James equal green.

Chris x3 more.

Chris making it to the final two would be the best thing since the invention of the wheel.CrazyCrazy

Good luck to everyone. One more weekend of this dross ''musical'' show then back on the golf forum.

Well done James backers. A relief for me personally... traded myself out of a poor position after Ella went... stuck with my guns, refused to back Jahmene. James ends up a decent result... but made more on weekly markets this year.

If the Star is right again we will have to do "shifts" during the night next time.  I could have retired if I had checked the bookies when the DVO leak came through at 2am.

it's to do with changing tack and banging the drum when the momentum in the show changes.

It's a soap opera.

There's no point picking someone at the outset and steadfastly refusing to budge all series.

Things change.

A week is a long time in X Factor.

Being quick to see it is an art.
