Tipping Comments

More excellent football comments and tips over the weekend including this one by
rustie - Everton v Manchester United -"Nobody seems to have picked up on Everton being one of the best sides defensively since the turn of the year and they're in form unbeaten in their last 5 Premier League matches with four wins so I think this is going to be tough for United who have lost on their last couple of visits to Goodison Park which is why I'm backing a home win."


OLBG member and moderator Davidadan was at Wembley as a Liverpool fan and as a guest of OLBG, this score didn't make good reading. If you would like to be in with a chance of going to Wembley as a guest of OLBG just add your quality comments in the tipping competition.

Tipping Comments

OLBG member Bomber has tipped and commented on the Norwich v Middlesbrough match, his team news/injury comments highlight the quality info we strive for on on OLBG.

" Norwich City are in superb form + 13 goal midfielder Bradley Johnson is back after a 2 game ban Their only doubt is Lewis Grabban who only came back against Leeds Utd in midweek, City won 2-0 but his ankle injury flared up again. Boro folded at Watford and Bournemouth away and Norwich City can put them out of automatic promotion beating them tonight.
Boro have injuries to Woodgate, Ayala and Albert Adomah but Grant Leadbitter is back from his ban. Norwich lost 4-0 at the Riverside back in November so will want to pay Boro back big time"

OLBG Member Hobbys

Botev1921 as many know is a regular winner of OLBG tipping competitions and has won over £4000 on OLBG. You may not have known that is hobby is collecting football pin badges. He wrote
There are many ways to spend the money you make from betting, buying luxury goods, travelling abroad or simply investing all make sense. I myself invest for the future every time I win big but when it comes to the amazing prizes OLBG offers my philosophy changed and I had a plan from the very beginning I signed on the site.

I was certain I want to have something to show for the prizes and money won thanks to OLBG. Since my hobby of collecting football badges has always been slowed down by financial trouble I was absolutely committed to re-investing any OLBG-related prize into new additions to my collection. I managed to purchase badges
I never thought I would have the resources to get and in a way I created something of an OLBG legacy that I hope would stay with my children and grandchildren.
For approximately 4 years on OLBG I can show close to 100 new football badges. Some of the most incredible additions include a Motherwell FC badge from the 1930s several pre-60s badges of my favourite club Plymouth Argyle and a whole lot of rare non-league clubs.
