So with the football season about to get underway I have been rattling my brains about how the season will fair. The transfer window is still open with plenty of time for teams to make big changes so I may reconsider my thoughts. M|y predictions where pretty crap last season and I don't expect it to be much different this year,but it will not stop me having a punt on who will win what.
How do you think your team will fair this season?
My Newcastle United will struggle I fear as things stand but our manager will keep us up :D


My prediction on who will win what.

Winners - PSG
Runners up - Dundalk, I mean Bayern Munich.

UK team to progress the furthest - Spurs

Ha ha. I do think that PSG have a good chance and if you check out the bettering I think they are 5th or 6th faves. Spurs are up there too and I think they will only improve as a team this season.
And notice that I did not choose Newcastle to finish top 3 :D

I'd think Brighton are more likely to go down than Bournemouth.

I think Huddersfield will be joining them back in the championship in 2018.

I'm not so sure about either of them. Houghton is a good manager and for me Huddersfield where the best footballing side in the Championship last season. And that includes my Newcastle :eek:

The owners dug deep into his pockets recently and that may give them the consistency to get enough points this year. I would love to see them go up

I can see Mourinho's halo slipping again this year but this time it will be so smashed that he could never wear it again. I went off him after the way he treat Eva. Where is she now?

I wish that I hadn't opted for Spurs so enthusiastically after this week! Those poor players must be pissed off about having to use food banks :(

So starting from +0- my first £5 accumulator for the season is on the below. The first few games of the season are notorious for throwing out shock results and I have hopes of Huddersfield getting off to a flier

£5.00 Accumulator (6) To Win

Bournemouth @ 21/10
Win-Draw-Win
West Brom v Bournemouth Pending

Man City @ 1/3
Win-Draw-Win
Brighton v Man City Pending

Southampton @ 3/5
Win-Draw-Win
Southampton v Swansea Pending

Huddersfield @ 4/1
Win-Draw-Win
Crystal Palace v Huddersfield Pending

Chelsea @ 2/7
Win-Draw-Win
Chelsea v Burnley Pending

Liverpool @ 8/15
Win-Draw-Win
Watford v Liverpool Pending

Potential returns £325.94

well what a bloody night I'm having, fuming at the moment :mad:

Bet 1

bet01.jpg

Penalty in both games, Ronaldo sent off in Barca game, 7 yellows in the Juve game, but no red. :mad:

But this is why I'm really fuming and if Skybet ever answer live chat they will be getting told what I think!

bet02.jpg

There were 6 corners to PSG (all the other parts won) BUT as the 6th was the last second, the ref blew before it was taken, so Skybet have decided not to payout. Never mind that the sky sports website shows this

skybet02.jpg

and the skybet app just after the game showed

skybet03.jpg

So I'm absolutely FUMING haha

EDIT: Skybet have now placed all the bets back into play, no doubt from the backlash from the footy accums customers who all backed it too!

Nope not yet, its still in play. They are obviously looking at it again though as it was settled as a loser. It will look even worse if they do this then still refuse to payout. Paddypower, Bet365 and a few others have paid out on over 5.5 corners, which doesn't help skybet.
Also, a game can't end on a dead ball as far as I know so officially it must have been taken.
In my anger I seem to have missed another bet that I think won though that I forgot about putting on lol :D

edit, it won, was settled while i was typing this post out)

It was indeed a wild start for English Premier League. A tough clash between the Gunners and Foxes has been witness. Here comes the Red Devils dominating the top post, well I'm hoping that they will be able to keep it up as the competition progresses. :notworthy

Congrats for the lucky winners..

It was indeed an unpredictable start. I had a feeling that Huddersfield would get off to a flier and I think they will do well this season. But who could have predicted Burnley?
I think I need to amend my prediction for Spurs to do well after the toon game. And Newcastle need players in before the deadline otherwise I think they will go down :(

I got paid for that bet last night :D

I think Spurs are worth a small EW bet on winning the league, as I do Sunderland at 20-1 with Bet365. 20-1 for us is way too high, i probably wouldn't be tempted at 10-1 or less, but 20's is mental.

Newcastle not scoring knocked me out of £1500 from £5 yesterday, can't believe they didn't manage to score, thought they would have been flying out and trying to get an early goal :(

What a result! Congratulations. Lets hope that you don't find your account restricted now as seems to happen too often these days at many online bookies where the bookie sees a punter win too much :eek:

I would have to agree with you, but this season just started ad we don't have an idea on what will happen next.
