More on

After my last post (which incidentally I’m not going to say any more about but thanks  for the comments!) caused a bit of stir I thought I would post up the dictionary definition of Moron. noun 1. Informal . a person who is notably stupid or lacking in good judgment. 2. Psychology . (no longer in technical use; considered offensive) a person of borderline intelligence in a former and discarded classification of mental retardation, having an intelligence quotient of 50 to 69. The bold is my own and  certainly applied to myself when I was using the excellent “Shirley” PMT tool at the weekend . Having put some nice £100 […]

Bit of let down……

Well the much hoped for “when Handy met Shirley” orgasmic  moment didn’t really get going at the weekend and turned into a bit of a damp squib to be honest.  Andy had selected the Sunderland vs Fulham game to be the main trade and I had managed to scalp the 0-0 successfully giving me a nice bit of cover there, unfortunately that was the only bit that went according to plan as Sunderland proceeded to hit the woodwork a couple of times and leave the game goalless at halftime which was even more frustrating as it was the only one in the premiership to be without goals. As I had […]

When Handy met Shirley

Readers of a certain age will remember the above film and at the time the scene was felt to be close to the edge- shows you how times have changed! So whats this got to do with anything? Well this weekend will be my first weekend when I’m going to merge the homer  strategies of “Handy Andy”  with the PMT (Pre match trading) tool from the Tradingfootball team. My plan is to use the tool to identify prices that are out of line to give me some nice green on various correct scores and be able to work myself into a comfortable position following Andy’s advice and with any luck […]

Tradingfootball.eu Interview

As regular readers of the blog will know I have been a member of the Tradingfootball.eu service for a long time and this season have made a real concerted effort to learn more about this particular areas of trading which is of great interest to me. Ive also signed up and have the “Shirley PMT” tool although to be honest I’ve only really scratched the  surface with regards to the opportunities that this can offer. I’m delighted therefore to be able to offer an insight on the service from one of the co founders the one and only Mr “Bingo” Little.  Bingo Take the hot seat! For those who aren’t […]

Weather or not…

If someone had told me a year ago that I could be making a nice tidy sum at 7am on a Thursday morning by paying close attention to the weather forecast then I would have thought they were barking mad. However that’s what happened on  Thursday as the Betfair  price on the draw in the England India 4th test  fell dramatically . This seemed to be a massive overreaction to the forecast predicting  rain in the afternoon (spot on as it happens with 65 overs lost) but the forecast for the next three days was pretty good and the way that India have batted, I feel  the loss of hours […]


Nothing spectacular this weekend although it was nice to see that my comment about the golf picks was proved unfounded as Jeremy Chapman (standing in for Steve Palmer in the Racing Post) found another winner in the golf in Scott Piercy at 50/1 . The only downside was that this was a half point selection and all the other picks bombed out and were never really in contention so therefore there was very little opportunity to trade. However a profit is a profit and £43 was added to the bank. USPGA  this week and although its a huge betting event my record this year in the majors has been poor […]
