In no way wishing to be awkward by disagreeing, but one thing that came together perfectly last year by only doing every weekend was the thing ran exactly 40 weeks - anything over £4k was profit, anything under was a loss.

I'd rather do one a week so would prefer only one top-up this week, but have no real objection to people having another bet midweek.

fair point...

ok > this midweek

have a bet and take a top up if you have MISSED a bet and also MISSED a weekly topup at some point previously

if not, then dont!

if you took the top up but missed having a bet one week (which some have done) then have a bet but dont take the usual £100 top up...

OK, in that case as I gave the last international week a miss but took the top, I'll have a go during these mid-week fixtures without taking a top-up to level things up.
