It is with sadness that we were informed of the passing of long term OLBG member Lankylite (Graeme). He was known by many members as a fan of Greyhound racing and the organiser of many a challenge on the OLBG forum.

Graeme was planning a ski dive jump in aid of retired greyhound trust, and his family informed us that some of his family will do the jump for him next year in aid of the trust. They will pass on details to members next year if members wish to donate.

The family said that Graeme thought flowers being sent were a waste and he would prefer if people used the money for a bet!! His family also said they are raising a glass in memory of Graeme at 9pm Saturday night which was his favourite time of the week, so it may be nice if members followed suit. He will be missed by us all.

The big premier league game of the weekend is Tottenham v Man City as its 1st v 2nd.
OLBG member Kingman55 likes the draw in the game: "Spurs have won the last 2 fixtures between the two sides 4-1 and 2-1 (having lost the previous 4), and with City missing De Bruyne, who is clearly one of, if not the best, creative player in the league at the moment, Tottenham can take advantage, and get something from this game. Obviously Spurs are missing Kane, and City have more than just De Bruyne, with a rejuvenated Sterling and a creative and clinical Aguero. I expect a tight game and points shared looks likely.
