16 Years ago as I write this, before the internet and even before the days when people like us had mobile phones (but not before the days people wore Haddows bags as a makeshift rain hat) we all waited up until close to midnight to see if Fergus had saved us. We need a second coming! Moving forward to the present day the board need to do SOMETHING to avoid a drop in season book sales of about 15,000 next season. As Eddie would say on Twitter – surprise surprise?
For the purposes of betting on the rest of the season I’m going to gamble based upon the way I think we can play with the attacking options in the team. In addition to our Scottish nonsense, this week’s Paddy Power Bulletin looks toward the weekend’s FA Cup actions.
For the Quarter final stage there is betting on which team will score the quickest goal or pick up the quickest card plus which game will have most goals as well as odds on an all-London final and an all-Birmingham final.
For the Chelsea v Stoke game Paddy Power will be refunding losing first/last scorer, correct score and scorecast bets if Frank Lampard scores the last goal.
With the FA Cup and Premier League both having four games each over Saturday and Sunday there is also betting on which of the two will have most goals in their competition over the weekend and which will have most red cards.
Portsmouth and Birmingham also start a back-to-back double header with Paddy Power betting on the double result of the Saturday and Tuesday games and whether a Portsmouth or a Birmingham player will score in both games.
