Not quite…the story of the money on P/C is a story of our sad season.  We started the year with £100 in our Paddy Power account and had such high hopes for the coming year.  It all started so brightly.  Within the first few weeks we went to £116 and then up to £124, even reaching the dizzy heights of £133 and then it all started going wrong.  Obviously we only bet on SPL fixtures and specifically bet on both us and Rangers winning, which didn’t happen very regularly this season past.  Indeed we did not win more than 4 consecutive games until Lennon’s arrival.  Since we only finished 6 points behind Rangers then you can see that they also were not winning every week.  Our lowest point was when we got to just £16 left.

We started recovering when our early season bets started kicking in.  Naturally we went for the Hoops for the title (useless buggers) but had more luck elsewhere.

EPL – Chelsea

Championship – Newcastle (with Forrest E/W!)

1ST Division – we lost out on Leeds

2nd Division – Notts County

SPL – ????

1st Div – Inverness Caley

So not a bad record – a wee fiver on each of these at the start of the season and I end up with a 56% return on my £100 initial investment.  Beats the banks.

So Ben Patrick and I will sit and down and think about who’ll be winning the leagues next term.  World Cups, new managers and new signings will all play a part.  Here’s hoping we have two of them by end of July.
