Football on acid, an admission of struggle and some delicious irony

Made money back last weekend, but no significant profit. To be honest it has been a long hard clog for football betting this campaign. When you have got Barcelona losing 2-0 at home to Hercules, Arsenal spaffing away a four goal lead at St James, and Chelsea losing 3-0 at home to Sunderland. Jesus, next thing you know and it’ll be John Terry regaining the England captaincy and Fulham building a statue of Michael Jackson. It’s like we’re all on acid.
£10 on QPR and Manchester United to win gets you £29

Two memoirs from the week of football, one annoying and one amusing. Firstly, Wayne Rooney claiming the moral high ground at newspaper reports that he may quit United. “I’m enjoying my football here and if I was going to leave in the summer I wouldn’t have signed a new contract when I did. I’ve signed it and I intend to see it through to the end. You get angry when people question you.” That is the sort of cock that makes me wanna chuck it all in, sell my stuff and live in a cave. God I hate football sometimes.

Thankfully my spirits were uplifted by a headline in the Nottingham Evening Post today:
“Time for action, not words says midfielder Cohen as Forest approach vital clash”. Makes you go all misty-eyed for Alanis Morissette songs.
£10 on Everton and Aston Villa to win gets you £38

Was fairly amused to see that Alex Ferguson has been given a touchline ban. As I understand it he can still use his mobile, can still talk to the team before the game and at half time, and still won’t be doing interviews for Match of the Day. It’s the equivalent of punishing a 14 year old child by sending him to his room, when in his room is a Playstation 3, Championship Manager 2001/2 and a hard drive containing the most cherished works of celebritysextapes.com
£5 on Torquay, Brighton and Gillingham all to win gets you £56
