Jose Mourinho to Real Madrid anyone?

I must be crazy

Well I have two tips for tonights games and both are based on "gut-feeling", normally I will back up my selections with stats and solid reasons why I think a team will win but the first tip tonight it hards to find any stats apart from the law of averages! Ipswich Town, now Ipswich havent won a game all season (P12 W0 D6 L6) and face Watford at home tonight in the Championship but I have been feeling a home win for the last couple days (odds of 2.20 is available with most bookmakers). Ipswich should be mid table at least and I believe its just a matter of time before the team gels and starts winning games, and tonights home match under the floodlights with a good home support should see that first win!

The second game is Liverpool V Lyon in the Champions League, Liverpool have been on a 3 game losing streak but tonight sees the return of captain Steve Gerrard which is a massive boost. Its a must win for the home side and the price 1.83 is a good bet, European nights are always a bit special at Anfield and this coupled with Gerrards return should see a dramatic improvement in the quality of Liverpools play. I will be watching the game with extra nerves now!

Sundays result in La Liga was pleasing seing Espanyol beat Tenerife 2-1 at odds of 1.94, although the unders bet didnt come in and with hindsight I should have just backed Espanyol and left the goals market alone (1-0 or 2-0 would have been the only result which would have given both winning bets) but we live and learn.. Also Fulham strolled to a 2-0 win over fellow strugglers Hull so all in all its been a decent weekend, lets hope the home support plays a part in tonights games!

Good Luck All.


  1. Hi Robbie, Yes I massively lumped on Liverpool early this morning at 1.90 with the view to lay at a lower price. Had Sunderland not got that freak goal Liverpool would have been around 1.50-1.60. I expect price at kick-off to be 1.74.

  2. hey Robbie,

    some sick luck the past few days with 90th minute goals going against you. Still in profit though in my football trading, thanks to you. Keep it up mate!

  3. Thanks Clive, I must admit was pretty gutted last night.. Thought Ipswich would hold on :-( Thats 3 last min goals in the last 3 days that have hurt, 2 financially and 1 emotionally! oh well, onwards and upwards
