Thread: Season's points

  1. #1

    Season's points

    I notice one of my spread betting firms is quoting the same points spread for us as for the Fowls, indicating a joint 9th and 10th finishing position!

    They don't always get it right of course (they grossly underestimated us last year - which helped my finances) but I would be very surprised and delighted with such an outcome. For the time being, I think I'll sit on the sidelines and keep my money safe.
    Anybody else got a different opinion?

    Be good to be in touching distance of one of the most MASSIVE clubs in the history of football after spending about 30/40 million less.

    I was home early yesterday and found that 'I believe in miracles', the story of Forests rise to the European Cup was on BTSport. Apart from being very enjoyable to watch, I was struck by a certain similarity between how Cloughie and CW go about their business. Thats not to say CW is the new Cloughie. Its just that you can see some of the same thought processes about the game and how to get a team to play.

    What does this mean for your spread betting dilemma? Nowt at all...sorry.

    Are you seriously comparing CW to one of the greatest managers to have ever been in the game? wow

    No he's not doing that at all and he's made his thought process perfectly clear, so why would you say that? I've got some of the traits of Paul McCartney, but unfortunately I can't write songs, the fringe has gone and I have a crap signing voice.

    You seem like you're priming up a 'they think Wilder is as good as Clough' thread for Porktalk pal.

    I also notice that they have Barnsley to finish 3rd from bottom, which I think is a bit harsh.
    Mainly because I like their manager, I'm tempted to have a small up bet on them @ 49 points.

    Anybody watch them regularly, care to give me an insightful appraisal now that the transfer window has closed?

    My betting bible gives a weekly prediction of the final table with points,and like last season they never managed to get ours right although they had us finishing top for most of 2017 and generally they aren't far off obviously things like barnsleys rise and our last season catch pretty much everyone out

    This week they have us in 10th on 65pts along with Derby and Sunderland,the pigs in 7th on 69pts and Barnsley in 19th on 58pts so that points to a definate flutter on Barnsley Ronnie,I'd have a go myself but I don't do spreadbetting it worries me so I stay clear

    I think the line 'that's not to say CW is the new cloughie' is the give away in this one

    Seems to me you are Paul McCartney gray

    May I enquire as to the nature of this betting "bible" Bully? Do you actually make a profit (be honest) over a long period of time?

    Not at all, i just think it's hilarious to name Tufty in the same breath as Clough. The two couldn't be more different both in football and out of football.

    Both like a drink,that is something they have in common

    It's the racing football outlook Ronnie comes out weekly full of stats and things that help me make the decisions I do,as for winning I hold my own I'd make a lot more if I changed my betting style but I like accas usually 5 timers which really isn't the way to make money but it's fun for me I just enjoy the whole process I've been playing with their money for over a season now accounts have been as low as 50quid and over 350 it's currently just under 200. It could have been more than double that as last week I had a long shot acca that was only let down by Coventry 5 quid was paying 299 I'm sure if I'd been in they could have tempted me with a cash back offer unfortunately I was busy so just had to let it ride

    It comes out every tues btw costs 2.40 (Robbin bar stewards) it has helped pick the last 3 national winners one of em backed at 80 odd to one won at much much shorter so it pays for itself I only use the horse racing section for the big meetings tho has a golf tipster who has an excellent record,as always you can find conflicting opinions it's up to you to choose what you use and ignore,overall I find it useful and reading it is part of the enjoyment for me

    Hope all of that helps ron

    I couldn't agree more, Alan Knill's managerial record is quite something.

    If we are going to compare CW to anyone at this stage I would say his management style reminds me more of Harry Bassett. He has turned the Club around to a point where everyone is pulling in the same direction from the tea ladies right through to the first team stars (is that politically incorrect BTW could be tea 'people' and they are just as important as anyone else).

    The Club is truly United throughout once again - as CW says 'we got our Club back'.

    No I didn't. You sir, are an idiot. I suggest reading and understanding what people write, not jumping in with your size nine opinion.

    Cheers Bully. Thanks for the info.
    Personally, I only punt on things I know about - football and (very occasionally) cycling, but also "financial" markets. I don't understand horses at all and the timing of movements in the F/X markets continually mystify me - so I avoid those completely (unless I have a day out at the races, when it's very small bets just to give me an interest

    I think you would find it useful Ronnie like I say I usually the discard the racing bit myself but plenty of stuff in the football half that's of interest at worst I'd say just take a look at it it's not for everyone I know but I'd always check something out before deciding whether it's for me or not

    Ahh of course the insults start coming. I think you have realised what you said was complete and utter nonsense and you feel slightly silly.

    Tufty is a fantastic manager, in my opinion one of the best outside the PL. But to say there are similarities between him and Clough in how they go about their fotballing business? I think you sir, are the idiot.
