  1. I’m pretty sweet on Saint Palais tomorrow who’s about 50/1 - 66/1 tomorrow with bookies paying 4 or 5 places. Posted earlier that he could either be brilliant or terrible over hurdles but I’m hoping tomorrow is the day for him. I also like Ahoy Senor at 20s in the Gold Cup. Another horse not to be relied on heavily but when he’s on his game, he’s brilliant.
  2. You wear it well is a wonderful horse. Can’t believe the drift to 16/1, I thought I was getting decent value at 10s when I mentioned her earlier in the week.
  3. I had 1st 2nd 3rd on placepot, tricast paid 65/1. Not a penny on it. At least the placepots are still live.
  4. Bad continues to be chucked in. Sure it was about 33/1 this time last week, down to 15/2 now. Not sure there is too much value in that price given the risk having never raced outside of France and when racing in France it’s been in fields of 3 or 4. Though the more rain and heavier ground the better it would appear. If the weather forecast is as predicted for Thursday and the races before turn the track into a bit of a bog, I will be on You wear it well in the Mares Novices Hurdle.
  5. I went a tad daft with antepost selections last year, saved by Flooring Porter. I’ve got one NRNB selection of Saint Palais at 66/1 in the Albert Bartlett. He’s either terrible or brilliant and Richard Bandey looked to have him back to his best before he fell at the last at Haydock. I’m convinced he would’ve won had he stayed upright, by all accounts no damage done by that fall so at the price can’t refuse. I love Glimpse of Gala and may have a small e/w on her in the Pertemps. I think this might be a stretch too far given the class she’s up against but stranger things have happened and she doesn’t give up. I really liked Fusil Raffles in the Plate but doesn’t seem to have been declared at the 6-day stage.
  6. Monviel and Zhiguli as each way singles for me at Sandown today. I’m hoping both will love the ground as they seem to do, I’m also hoping there are very few non-runners, despite the ground, for the extra places. Zhiguli back down to a similar mark to when he won at Lingfield last year.
  7. Sign of the times sadly. Tote are doing £1m placepot each day, granted it’s quite a bit more difficult but there is the potential for excellent returns for little outlay. They do boosted pots each Saturday which is better than most of the bookies offers these day, unless you’re a new joiner. Bet365 taking away the ITV 4/1 offer last month as well was annoying.
  8. Good news with Carson signing for another season, he’s been great for us this season. I doubt it as he will surely move on to bigger & better things but I would love Strain to be signed up long term. I’d imagine Main might be holding out for one last potential payday elsewhere before agreeing anything with us given his age and form this season.
  9. Jota diving is the real issue, unfortunately as it’s not in the box the weak referee can be conned without any repercussions. I note the hard done by Postecoglou isn’t quick in highlighting that, I’m sure he would be if a Jota dive leads to a penalty award being overturned through VAR.
  10. He was also known as ‘Chilli D’, to those familiar with him, at the time of the rumours. Terrible point, terribly made.
  11. Dreadful by Dunne, he got too comfortable with letting the ball roll across his body instead of leathering at first opportunity. Albeit, he did remarkably well not to leather that wee w**k Kyogo for the patronising pat on the head after he got the red card.
  12. Union Bears taking the result well down Victoria Road way. You’d think they would be used to trudging out of Hampden after a defeat by now and found another coping mechanism.
  13. To think there was such an outcry from **** when people sang during a minutes respect for a woman unconnected to Scottish football. You’d think they’d practice what they preach but then again it’s braindead idiots we are dealing with.
  14. Stuart Atwell trying to be smart early on letting clear bookings for Fernandez and Richarlison go. Only to lose the plot at the end of the half. Never a red, god knows why it took him about 3 minutes to make his decision then run straight to the monitor as soon as the red was out.
  15. Bring back Radford, he only needed one post. Never has a thread featured tumbleweed more. Looking forward to whoever we are playing after Saturday.
  16. Night & day from wednesday when we barely pressed a single Motherwell player. Can well imagine Robinson wasn't best impressed by that. Good result.
  17. Can't remember where I read it but following Wednesday night someone suggested we'd be much better off, points wise, if we had Tait in the team. Be as well throwing him in upfront if he's the saviour following a couple of defeats. The same Tait that can't get in the team when everyone is fit & will surely be let go come the end of the season.
  18. He hastily blew on seeing the ball trundle into the net so VAR wouldn’t have got involved in the piece of play. Whether that was a deliberate ploy by Beaton is anyone’s guess.
  19. We were atrocious. I can’t remember us pressing and winning the ball back so little in a game, wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t do it all tonight. Did nothing we had been good at this season. Got what we deserved. Remarkable performance by Beaton.
  20. I thought it was a red card. It looked to me the ball was going across the body of Small into the net and only hit Small as a result of the deflection off Taylor's arm. Harsh as it wasn't deliberate, unlike Ayunga's against Livi earlier in the season, but it definitely stopped the goal from what I could see. We played well enough beforehand and caused enough problems without creating anything. Grieve's chance at 1-0 looked like a certain goal without Carter-Vickers block. Starfelt loses concentration at least once a game, he seems a bit of a weak-link in that Celtic team.
  21. Good crowd. Dreadful game. Best thing to happen in the game was a switch of play by Newell out to the right. Played the pass about an inch off the ground whole way straight to feet. Tremendous pass.
  22. Having heard part of his press conference on the radio last night that’s not particularly surprising. Comes across as a clown. That being said would still expect an Aberdeen win, I highly doubt they can or will ever perform as bad as that Hibs game. Unless the players are sick of Robson already.
  23. I can see no restrictions on territory. Don’t want Doonhame Buddie on the look out for something that isn’t there. https://twitter.com/aberdeenfc/status/1620467400582873089?s=46&t=D773HvHdW9PYnrFBnywprQ
