The only way is up

Somehow, even with a super team of music industry insiders and brilliant fans, we lost our bet this weekend. Not only does this mean I have to wait another week before being declared 'filthy rich', but it's time to start pointing fingers...

Below is a run-down of our bet and the scores from each game. As you can see, the difficult weather conditions ravaged our selections, leaving us with a somewhat disappointing 5 correct predictions, 3 incorrect and a massive 7 postponements.

Man City - Middlesborough - 1-0
Watford -
Southampton - P-P
Tranmere -
Leyton Orient - 0-0
Leicester -
Oldham - 0-0
Lewes - Wrexham - 0-2
Scunthorpe -
Cheltenham - P-P
Brentford -
Chester - 3-0
Rochdale -
Morecambe - P-P
Hereford - Brighton - P-P
Southport -
Hyde - 2-0
Stalybridge -
Blyth - P-P
Gateshead -
Fleetwood - P-P
Stranraer - Brechin - 0-3
Elgin - Dumbarton - P-P
Alloa - Ayr - 3-2


I've looked back and carefully studied everyone's tips, leaving me with just one conclusion to be drawn: It's all Jack from Alcopop's fault. With his ultra-confident tips of Tranmere and his "banker" Leicester swaying me, both were entered into the final bet and both, as you can see above, came away with 0-0 bore draws. Poor show, Jack, we'll be looking for a vast improvement next time!


Coming up

As many of the leagues take a break next week it's international time and a whole new world of gambling opportunities. I'll be looking for advice and tips later this week as we take our second attempt at winning a fortune and purchasing the music industry, and will have a number of new industry insiders giving us their opinions too.

Also coming soon will be a league table of our tipsters as we separate the weak (Jack) from the less weak, meaning we all know exactly who's letting the side down. Pressure's on now, lads!

re:Tranmere - never a good idea to back a team up against a side with a new manager. All the Orient players would have been looking to impress the new gaffer and justify their place in the team.

Oh heck! I didn't know Orient had a new manager - that'll teach me not to research properly

Are you a fan of one of the sides, Saam?

Hay i said Chelsea draw and Villa Win, not bad shame the oxford game was called off.
