Football betting tips

 Cole, Frank Incensed and Meh

 By Gerry McDonnell

I've never been a great fan of Steve McClaren, but it's wholly unfair to place the blame for the death of English football at the feet of one hapless individual. Personally, I hold Frank Lampard solely responsible.

The great and the good of the world of punditry, and David Platt, have all been quick to defend the tubby midfielder, claiming that criticism is unjustified.

These washed-up has-beens have obviously forgotten his poor recent performances, his demand for respect rather than throwing his hands up, Frank TV, protracted contract negotiations, the 9/11 bevvy-up, the 'these are my people' line, the undignified Hammer-bashing, the 'Super Goals' advert and the Jamie Redknapp connection.

The woeful national anthem is also a contributory factor to our demise. I don't really understand why we need to pay homage to Ashley Cole.

Looking forward, we should introduce a more upbeat tune that will help keep Frank Lampard's feet on the ground. 'Lip up Fatty' fits the bill perfectly. I can't keep quiet about the 11/4 for a draw between Middlesbrough and Chelsea.

After a dreadful start to the season with Bolton, little Sammy Lee is now searching for a new career. I suppose he could always become a jockey, like Ashley Cole. I'm not horsing around with the 2/9 for an Arsenal win over Bolton.

Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez are not a striking partnership, in more ways than one. Aston Villa are an absolute beast in front of their own supporters, they look overpriced at 4/1 to land the shock.

The Royals really enjoyed their trip to Blackburn last season; it was probably funded by the tax-payer. Rovers have definitely improved since then, while Reading have gone backwards like a drunken crab. I'll happily take 8/11 about a Blackburn side on the up.

Fulham are a lot like Princess Diana. They looked good for a while, but they've hit a wall. After six games without a win, a home match against Derby will reverse their fortunes at 3/4.

It's not been a good week for Ashley Cole. The controversial defender faces a prolonged spell out of the game, as his cushions no longer match his drapes. A defeat for Tottenham at Newcastle will spell curtains for Martin Jol; a hard earned point may be enough to prolong the agony at 23/10.

Steve Bruce has demanded face-to-face talks with Carson Yeung. The billionaire is no mug though; he's bringing a couple of paper bags with him. There's no disguising the fact that Manchester City are a lock at 3/5 at home to Birmingham.

Benjani has now added goals to his repertoire: it now consists of goals. The 8/5 for a Pompey win over Wigan is everything you ever wanted in a football bet, and a little bit more.

I'm not sure if I buy this new cuddly easy-going persona of Roy Keane. It wouldn't surprise me if the Sunderland manager was seen holding a hammer on the touchline, preferably Craig Bellamy. West Ham can send Keano closer to the edge at 10/11.

The Merseyside derby is probably the toughest nut to crack on the weekend coupon. I honestly don't know which set of supporters will be bragging at work on Monday morning; probably because the question is fundamentally flawed. I can't pick a hole in the 9/4 for a draw between Everton and Liverpool.

I only wish that footballers could follow the example of their rugby playing counterparts. Although in fairness, Ashley Cole is doing his bit. The English rugby team are shoo-ins at even money with a nine point start against South Africa in the World Cup final.

Lewis Hamilton has the world at his feet, unlike Frank Lampard, who has to rely on updates from helpful associates. The 2/5 for young Lewis clinching the drivers' championship is more than fair.

I think it's time for the Frank Lampard bashing to cease. Nobody likes to see a fat kid get continually bullied, unless it has comedy value. Arsenal, Blackburn, Fulham, Man City and West Ham form a 10/1 weekend accer whose worth is beyond question.

 Premiership Betting - Matchday 10 Preview (Oct 20-22)


With less than ten fixtures played, Bolton’s Sammy Lee has joined Jose Mourinho on the Premier League’s managerial scrap-heap. There are certain to be more casualties, sooner rather than later, in a league where the financial stakes are so high, failure cannot be tolerated for long. Premiership bettors shouldn’t tolerate anything but the best Premiership betting odds, usually found at PinnacleSports.com.


Managerless Trotters Face Stern Test at League Leaders

After just nine games in charge of Bolton Wanderers, Sammy Lee has left the club by mutual consent. Having spent the last four seasons mounting a realistic challenge for a Champions League place, Bolton’s current position - one place off the foot of the table - has forced the club to act. Lee succeeded Sam Allardyce in the summer, who moved onto Newcastle, giving the impression that he felt the club had hit a glass ceiling. As the search for a replacement begins, the Trotters - with just one win this season - must prepare for a visit to unbeaten Premiership leaders, Arsenal, under stand-in coach, Archey Knox.

The Gunners have a perfect record at the Emirates Stadium this season, but left it late in their most recent home game against Sunderland. Robin Van Persie scored the decisive goal late on in the 3-2 win, after the Londoners had relinquished a 2-0 lead. So long as Arsene Wenger gets his multi-national squad back in one-piece from international duty, particularly Cesc Fabregas, the most influential player this season, Arsenal will be strongly fancied to maintain their position at the top of the league. However, bettors should note that Bolton have drawn on four of their last seven away trips to Arsenal, while losing the remaining games by a single goal margin. PinnacleSports.com price Arsenal favourites 1.990 (-1.5) with Bolton 1.935 (+1.5).


Torres Doubtful for Merseyside Derby Debut

Liverpool’s record signing and current top-scorer – Fernando Torres – is a major doubt to make his debut in a Merseyside Derby. He injured himself training for Spain, and is in race to be fit for Saturday’s key game at Goodison Park. The Reds will be looking to end a poor recent run that has seen them win just one of their last seven league and European fixtures. Rafa Benitez can not afford to see his side lose further ground on Arsenal, with several clubs including Everton breathing down their neck, defeat could see them slip to mid-table. The Toffees are without Andy Johnson, but he has been in dire form in any case. The club were given a huge boost by making the UEFA Cup group stages, but would love to top that off with a repeat of last season’s 3-0 home win against arch-rivals, Liverpool. PinnacleSports.com price Liverpool marginal favourites 2.140 (-0.5) with Everton 1.806 (+0.5).


Progressive Villans Ready to Thwart Red Devils

After an unlucky defeat in the dying seconds of their opening game at Villa Park, Aston Villa have recorded four consecutive home wins, including the scalp of Chelsea. The Midlands’ club certainly seem progressive in Martin O’Neill’s second season in charge, but must lift their game further against one of their least favourite opponents, Manchester United. The Red Devils have won the last eleven meetings of the clubs in all competitions, and Villa last beat them in 1999. After struggling for goals, United finally opened the flood gates last week against Wigan with a 4-0 win, featuring two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, who looks to be back to his best. United are however, still without Carrick and Hargreaves in central midfield, so with Villa in bouyant mood, this game is likely to be a much closer encounter. PinnacleSports.com price Man Utd marginal favourites 1.833 (-0.5) with Aston Villa 2.100 (+0.5).
