I’m thinking about a bet on Chelsea v Barcelona. Both will be trying

My gambling greengrocer said, “Listen to me, I’m a scientist.”

Some years ago John persuaded me to open an online gambling account and I slowly learned how to win almost as much as I lose

It’s a little hobby, an amusing sideline that works alongside blogging. When I win, I believe that I know what I’m writing about.

Last season and this season I’ve won more bets-in-play than I’ve lost.

On Wednesday night John backed Ronaldo to score and Real Madrid/Ronaldo two goals and Real Madrid/ Real Madrid and Over 2.5 goals/Real Madrid and Over 3.5 goals.

John won all four bets because Real Madrid beat PSG 3-1.

He reckoned the players would do it for Zidane, so he would keep his job.

His question for the Chelsea v Barcelona game is: Will the players do it for Conte to keep his job?

On the ITV Highlights show, Roy Keane said, “United will beat Seville over two games.”

Keane also said, “Chelsea will struggle against Barcelona.”

John, his son Oliver and Chelsea Kevin went to the Hull game at Stamford Bridge on Friday night and Chelsea won 4-0 with Willian scoring two early goals.

Saw him again on Saturday morning :“Impressed with Chelsea?”

He made a face and said, “Hull were pony, Myles. Macaroni.”
