Re: English Football 2015/16

How -EV is getting 10,000:1 on picking six anytime scorers in a round of ten premier league fixtures?

Gueye looked promising? He gave the ball away every time he had it.

your choices need to score about 22.5% of the time to make it 0ev and im quite sure u can do better than that

Re: English Football 2015/16

^^ an acca with 3 players each priced 3/1 to score anytime with 3 others each priced at 6/4 is 1000/1

Obviously that's going roughly of bookmakers prices (which I pulled from my arse but wouldn't be far off)

Cliffs .. probably quite + EV

I thought he showed some promising ideas and eye for openings especially in the beginning of the game with some nice forward passes that I look at as good signs but yeah later on he didn't seem as good.

He had 71 touches in this game. 3 of them were unsuccessful.

53 passes 85 pct completion rate. The Manchester United midfielders were better. Westwood hit the longer balls and completed worse. Pretty standard. Gueye was not dispossessed once according to the stats.

Watching the game I didn't think he gave the ball away every time he had it.

Re: English Football 2015/16

+ev was my gut read too, but then I wondered what the gimmick was. Probably a loss leader for some bookie. Saw it advertised while I was browsing some blog but couldn't be bothered looking further into it.

Lol you lot jumping down his throat.

Figures plucked from thin air aren't a fair line.

Arsenal where pre season favourites and still are favourites, although it's a lot closer now with 2 wins and WHU game.

Arsenal 1.9
Man Utd 2.1

45 to 50 is fine

45.238096 to 50 seems fine to me given the line is not moving. that joediego guy, always trying to get the bookie vig.

Re: English Football 2015/16

I thought Depay looked pretty sharp and its not as tho he fluffed his chance. Struck it confidently/correctly just mm out. I'd expect him to hit 10-15 for sure if he carries on/improves from last night.

I didn't watch the game, the reaction here seemed like he didn't do much that's why I asked

Pretty sure he meant Arsenal were favoured more over United which is still the case.

Yeah not sure what people are expecting from him 2 games in. It's not like he played Rooney bad. He's a foot away from people calling that an unreal finish. He'll be fine.

He was quite clearly joking/taking the piss out of Arsenal fans and the media who had Arsenal winning everything after they beat chelsea in the CS.

#EFC team: Howard, Coleman, Stones, Jagielka, Galloway, Barry, Cleverley, McCarthy, Barkley, Kone, Lukaku

Interesting going two up top but not a lot of creativity behind them


#Saintsfc XI team to face #EFC XI: Stekelenburg, Cedric, Yoshida, Fonte, Martina, S. Davis, Wanyama, Tadic, Mane, Long, Pelle
