    The "Here's what I am backing today" thread...

    Ok, a bit browned off reading non value bets in the value football bets thread, so this thread is for what you like or fancy, and leave the other one for items of specific value.

    I'm on already. Credit cards expired in all accounts bar powers and betfair. Too much hassle renewing them. Have to send betfair a bleedin pic of my passport. They keep rejecting it.

    So all 3 were duds. That's about right.

    I'm not sure of this one, hence why it's in the 'Here's what I am backing' thread as opposed to the value bets
    What bet did I fail you on just out of interest?

    Are AC Milan not without Ibrahimovic tonight? Didn't he get sent off at the weekend v Napoli? He scores most of their goals. (AC Milan have only scored 6 goals in their last five games, and 3 of them came from Ibrahimovic.) The only reason I'm doing Juventus & draw.

    Charlton and Southampton let us down. Others were United -1, Spurs -1 and Hull I think. It was the first one you got wrong in weeks, Trust me to back it

    Ah yeah. Can't win them all though! For every bet I've won in me life, I've probaly lost ten!

    Completely up to you to back those 8 eight teams above.

    I know Ajaccio are playing lower league opposition and are unbeaten in five.

    Barcelona hardly ever drop points at home ( even though it's a cup game ).

    AC Milan might be without Ibrahimovic and Juventus are top of the league with the best defence.

    Dartford won their last five in a row and are second in the league against lower league opposition.

    Celtic unbeaten in something like 16 games so can't see anything other than a Celtic win.

    Middlesborough crippled by injuries and Sunderland are on a roll.

    Stuttgart have lost four of their last five and are mid-table, Bayern are second.

    Ivory Coast are now the favourites to win the competition against an average Mali side.

    They're the reasons behind it basically, and I think it's worth a fiver myself at 35/1. If it was a given, A) the bookies wouldn't be offering 35/1 and B) I'd be putting an awful lot more than a fiver on it!

    Good luck

    Not sure, but it's a cup game, Milan are at home and are the slightly better team (IMO) and were good odds for the win too. Also, Juve were shite at home to Siena in the league last Sunday

    Gutted! Only Sunderland let us down and that's because I did them to win in 90 minutes instead of "to progress to next round"!

    My apoligies RS!
