Any thoughts on what the proper number should be?
Guess it depends on the point of the bet. If it is to have a fun sweat and something to banter and bond over with your son, then +23 seems fine. If the objective is to find the best possible means to take the kid's money, then by all means, line shop away.

Oh dear.

Footballer Marcus Bent fined for possessing cocaine at Chessington World of Adventures

Not funny, but the headline made me laugh.

Fixtures out for the football league, jokers putting two of the away games I wanted to go to midweek and a third when I already have plans, doubt I can get from the Valley to Manchester in three hours

Euston to Manchester takes just over 2 hours on the train, so if you can get there from the Valley in under an hour (and the timetable is kind) it's doable.

Stan Petrov joining up with the Villa squad for preseason. When I seen the headline I thought it'd be a coaching role but he wants to earn a playing contract.

Best of luck to him.

Remain still two thirds-ish favourites. But there was a time when the odds were down to like 1.10

The whole outcome is on London here and possibly Birmingham.

Remain's hit 1.06 btw, now 1.57.
