There were two XX Draw selections yesterday, with the best result being the postponement of the Parma v Juventus game due to snow. The second match was the Everton v Manchester City game, which was the low-scoring game I'm looking for, but the draw didn't happen. Griff picked the same match as one of his draws, but grabbed the Swansea City v Chelsea draw which was an unofficial near-selection for the XX Draws too. No luck for Geoff who had Gabon v Tunisia and Nottingham Forest v Burnley as draw selections. Swansea City to beat Chelsea was Football Elite's selection of the night too.
More games tonight, with Griff going with the draw at Bolton Wanderers v Arsenal, and Mark J looking for Atalanta (-0.5) v Genoa. Geoff's draw picks are Blackburn Rovers v Newcastle United and Cagliari v AS Roma.
SJ stopped by for a little chat, and had this to say:
Whilst I was off a couple of weeks ago one of the tv shows I started watching to pass the time was Sky's "Mad Dogs". Don't judge. It can't have been too bad though because last night I watched the newest episode. It is a little bit silly but one of the quotes from the show was something like "if you come in at the beginning of a growth market, unless you're an idiot, you're going to do very well". It obviously wasn't mentioned in relation to betting exchanges but I believe it is quite a good extension to your evolving markets point. The quicker you can react to long or short term changes in a market the better chance you stand of being successful.Excellent work readers. The Sultan has been firmly put in his place. Now if he would just stop posting interesting stuff...
Also, you might be pleased to know that as a result of my whining you managed to send people to my blog at a ratio of 7:1 to The Sultan today. Good job.
SJ had a good post too on the subject of 'trendfear' which was on the BBC's site. SJ writes
I'm beginning to think that perhaps Twitter is something I should know about.Er, hello SJ. Wake up call. This is 2012, not the dark ages. I cannot believe that there are people today who do not have Twitter accounts. I mean seriously, it's unbelievable. And here's a little advice - Twitter is a two way thing Mr. SJ - a wise man once Twittered
"It's a two way thing Cassini - follow and you shall be rewarded lol"although what the 'lol' at the end meant, I have no idea. 'Lay off losers' I guess, I certainly hope it wasn't 'lots of love'. ROFL.
