Well that served me right really!

How silly, with hindsight of course. That was a stonking trade and I usually would have been into that at 5 or higher pre off. But after kick off I always end up chasing a few more ticks down the ladder before getting in, call me greedy, too risk-averse, or just a prize n0b-head, its all the same missed trade to me! Fortunately I know a few readers saw what I didnt see and just smacked that gift-horse right in the knackers to take some nice green in under 60 seconds. Well done to those, next time can you loan me your cahonas please 😀 …

Two winners, and some sweaty palms!

Well thanks to that ridiculously badly run company known as Betfair, I couldn’t exit my trades but for once luck was very much on my side and both trades won. Ok they should have both been winners, but not down to the wire. I was trying to trade out for a break even on the Vasco game after the dog scored first and the odds were at 3.7 so I could get out of that one without any win or loss, which is my approach when this happens. The other game had a nice early goal and would have been a decent enough green trade. Betfair clearly don’t invest anywhere …

Wow, a trade!

8pm Palmeiras – I don’t often trade Brazil games but this one looks good with good form on both sides. It’s not the strongest pick ever, but the odds make it a good value trade in my view. 3.7 ish currently, that’s cheap with such a good run of home form for home team. 8pm Fluminense – Another Brazil game, a strange one but excellent value I think. They don’t score a lot at home, and a big part of me is tempted to leave it for a 0-0 half time scoreline, but I think that would almost certainly miss out on goals and with the away team’s terrible form …

Am I the only one who dislikes women’s football?!

Ok, I have to say it. I can’t stand women’s football. Cue the hate mail 😀 😀 I must confess to having never seen it until last night. This was not out of a deliberate attempt to avoid it, but more out of lack of interest. It just doesn’t seem a very feminine thing to be doing and therefore doesn’t represent entertainment for me, nutting heads as they compete for a ball 8 feet in the air, sliding tackles, shoulder barges resulted in winded players writhing in pain on the floor etcetera. I saw some for the first time last night when i accidentally switched channel to hear “this world …

Enjoying the sun…

Just a quick note to let y’all know I am alive, as always happens around this time of year the decent footie dies off and the sun comes out, so its either some nice racing trading or just a good time to tidy the house and garden! I only trade racing on wet days this time of year, it’s just too nice to be sat looking at Bet Angel ladders when a blue sky waits for me outside!! Tennis trading is a great thing to be doing this time of year, but I enjoy watching Wimbledon too much to spoil it by staring at flashing ladders! Shame, because there are …
