Whose idea was this?

Whose idea was it? Come on, own up. To extricate me from 29 degrees centigrade and drop me in a place where the monkeys are made of brass. It’s fecking cold ! I am in the Land of Matt Le Tissier and Heather Watson for Christmas and the New Year. I will be on Uncle...

See past the hype to make your betting pay…

I never ceased to be amazed at how many punters have a bet on the basis of hype rather than using a cold, hard, rational approach. Ok, it’s fine to have the odd small patriotic wager on England in the World Cup, for example, but the advice from all my various...
