    So that time has come when I resume my weekly donations to the bookmaking fraternity. I'll post my charitable contributions to those deserving folk here.

    Good luck all for the new season. Hope to see some good winners on here. :D

    If @Damien could do the honours please. Thanks.

    Madrid@0 is 1.62 at Mansion88. So generous. $100 for 90 minutes play for them.

    I started the season as good as the last. Had Dortmund on as the last leg on Saturday, and they went onto concede the shittest own goal equaliser in the 90th minute.

    Madrid and Falkirk @ 3.82.

    I'll wait to see the line-ups though.

    1. Celtic, FC Viitorul Constanta, Tranmere Rovers, Wolves, Slovan Bratislava, Sheff Wed, Real Madrid or Man United

    2. Hapoel Be'er Sheva or draw, Osasuna, SK Sigma Olomouc, Legia Warsaw, Wolfsburg, Birmingham City, Norwich

    3. England U19 W, Bristol City, Hradec Kralove, Millwall or draw, Den Bosch, Hibernian, Lanus, QPR or draw

    Will do some fun RequestABets on SkyBet later once the teams are confirmed to make the game more interesting.

    Exeter are worth a look at tonight in the EFL cup v Charlton, I got on them this morning, odds have shortened since. Charlton are supposed to be playing a second XI.

    Barca would win La Liga.

    I don't think a Real Madrid win is as straight-forward as it seems. You are betting against a Jose team in a one-off cup final? Good luck.

    Easy peasy litle missy, mate. If it is not cause my love of United, i will put it more.

    Soon after seeing Real starting line up, i know it was a win already

    The technical gap between us and Real, sadly so so far.

    So on Saturday my four-fold was let down by Stevenage who were 3-1 up against Newport and drew 3-3 (94th minute equaliser).

    I then put £20 on a BTTS/over 20 booking points each and over 4 corners each in the Munich-Dortmund game, ended up needing just 1 more Dortmund corner.

    Then tonight I did an over 1.5 20-fold in the Carabao Cup and lower leagues, all came in except 1 game.

    17/18 off to a flyer. :)

    Yeah happy with that after suffering at the hands of Newport just like @Carlsen19 at the weekend. Only had a tenner on it but a nice start to the season (will cover my next month of losing bets anyway! haha).

    Next up for today: Leeds, Aberdeen, Rangers, Porto, Benfica, Sheff Utd and Gremio. 6.35/1

    Sheff Utd are my only worry as may be saving a few players for their away game against Boro on Saturday...

    Looking forward to the proper action starting on Friday myself. I quite fancy Huddersfield at 4/1. Few decent signings and lots of positivity.

    Their squad looks easily one of the worst in the league for me.

    Have 13/1 on +2.5 Porto, +1.5 in the Villa game, +2.5 on the Leeds game, BTTS Dundee derby, BTTS in the Sheff utd game, Rangers to win, and Benfica to win.

    Benfica are the last result, winning 2-1 at half time. Will make up for yesterdays shitter, 4 out of 7 results went against me

    Come on now! :eek:

    It's early days yet. You usually do quite well.

    My accas were close tonight as well. I would have expected Zenit, Steaua Bucharest, PAOK, Partizan, Ludogorets, Young Boys and Olympiakos to get a result tonight. But I'm sure I'll soon get back in the swing when the teams settle down and transfer window shuts. Just starting low to begin with anyway.

    Nice work. Obviously I didn't lump on!

    I'm on Thomas Pieters and James Hanh at the USPGA though. Hahn 150/1 - banker!

    As we've seen so often though, it's about more than just the squad on paper. Very good manager, morale high. I think 4/1 is value against an average Palace side.

    That's harsh. Don't think anyone expected Young Boys to lose to Thun at home, let alone get trashed 4-0!

    It was ridiculous, after the start they had to the season (including conceding no goals prior) I thought they were a banker. They dominated last night too, it just seems every shot Thun had turned to gold :(

    £50 on over 0.5 goals for the Bet365 qualifying bet.

    Either going to go Arsenal win & BTTS at 2/1 or Arsenal 2-1 at 8/1. Considering it's the start of the season I'm probably just going to go the safer route to hopefully build some bank then lump 100 tomorrow on a fairly safe evens bet.

    Over 0.5 is the easy option but stranger things have happened. I usually lay the pre-match bet at Betfair for a small profit or loss. Or at least I used to when Bet365 still gave me these bonuses!
