“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm”

At last!  After a week of scrabbling about with stories of near misses and tales of bad luck we get on the board with a small win!

I’m happy and focused, filled with an insane belief that I will one day make those darned bookies pay and pay big time.

They say that each journey begins with a singe step. Well, we’re off and running landing a whopping £3.75 profit from bet 1. I’m gonna roll this sucker up right up to Saturday when we’ll have some tidy profit to put on a nice acca, sound good? Keep it simple that’s the key here.

Ok, bet 2 is a double @ 0.85/1 with Bet365 and our stake is £8.75. Our return will be £16.20.


CS U Craiova v FC Targu Mures 4/9

Kalmar FF v Djurgarden 2/7

Good luck.



Legs 11

So close again today leg 11 of my 12 leg acca between Charleroi and Waasland ended 1-0 in a match that had a combined 26 attempts at goal. The additional salt rubbed into the losing wound by the 12th leg winning.

Just checking around the house to see if there’s a dead albatross in the place, it is fair to say luck is not with me at present.

So onto Sunday with a running P/L of -£20. Will be looking to get the week off to a winner with a straight treble of over 1.5 goals @ odds of 0.74 with Bet365 £5 returns £8.75.


Spartak Moscow v Arsenal Tula 1/4

Hacken v Helsingborg 1/7

FC Dallas v Vancouver 2/9

Good luck

The whole 12 yards

A whole bunch of missed chances (including a missed penalty) in the Sarpsborg game, ended 1-0 tonight and cost us a winning bet.

Our P/L stands at -£15.

The other 4 matches in our acca had goals galore, including a crazy match in Belgrade that had 2 goals in injury time.

It’s still early days and nothing to panic about as some teams maybe proverbially still on the beach at this time of year.

There have been plenty of shots in the majority of our selected matches and sooner or later this will translate into goals and winning bets, of this I am certain.

So our first Saturday together and I’m opting for a 12 fold to get things moving and hopefully bank a bit of green.

The acca pays 6.65/1 with Bet365 and I’m going with the standard stake of £5.


Inverness v Arbroath 1/7

Partick v Queens Park 1/7

St Johnstone v Stirling 1/7

Barcelona v Celtic 1/6

Charleroi v Waasland Beveren 2/7

Sparta Prague v Slovacko 1/6

Ferencvarosi TC v Diosgyori 1/4

MSK Zilina v FC Tatran Presov 1/4

Young Boys v Lugano 1/9

FC Copenhagen v FC Nordsjaelland 2/9

Universidad Catolica v Cobresal 2/11

Winning bet returns £38.21

Good luck.



The Herta Locker

Pain again last night as Herta only managed one goal in their tie with Brondby. The hurt was inflicted twofold as Trencin and Legia played out a 0-0 draw with 20+ combined shots on goal. Sometimes you bite the bar and sometimes the bar bites you.

So we start again with another £5 bet number 1.

Today’s bet is a fivefold acca that pays 1.43 with Bet365. £5 returns £12.13

Current P/L -£10.

Lask Linz v FC Blau Weiss Linz 1/5

KV Mechelen v Club Brugge 2/9

Dinamo Zagreb v Slaven Belupo 2/11
