Not sure I could live with myself betting on the ****.

 

Also, looking at the team they're putting out, I still think they should win. As does everyone else given that Alashkert are out to 10/1.

Used to work with a Dane. He could spit over the border into Schleswig-Holstein from his gaff. Hated Germans. Backed West Germany or Germany for £100 every major finals. Simply so he'd be less pissed off if they won.

I can't ever see myself doing that with Ing-Ger-Lund though🤔

I can see the logic. Not tempted to put it into practice. A double on Celtic/Rangers to win every week knowing that most of the time you'd have money back.

But every week a little more of your soul dies. 🤪

Never understand why teams rigidly stick to the playing it from the back when the opposition are pressing so high. Mix it up occasionally. 

Aye but filosifee!!!

Do Armenians not care about football? The best team in the biggest city can barely attract a few thousand fans for a Europa qualifier.

I could write a bulky tome on the decline of football in Eastern Europe. I haven't kept current, though. In Soviet days, things were semi-franchised. Ararat Yerevan were the Armenian club that Moscow favoured. Nationalism was tolerated to an extent in the main stadiums in distant republics, so long as those chanting were good pro-Soviet Communists. Ararat qualified for Europe through the USSR League. In a lot of cases, the big clubs in the newly independent ex-Soviet republics were fairly easy targets for new regimes... and, of course, they lost all their best players to Russia or to Western countries when the Soviet Empire crumbled.

Money-laundering Mafioso clubs, founded in the 21st century, now win titles. Very few people support them.
