Week 15 top up of £100 makes the bank £1325.42
Week 15 - £50 on HT Man City, FT Arsenal @ 29.00
Bet stake £50
Bank after stake £1275.42
Bet returns £??? (Possible return £1450, possible profit £1400)
Week end balance £1275.42

Arsenal's off field troubles continue, with Gallas stripped of captaincy and left behind. I can see Arsenal finding their feet here, and confounding the critics, but it wont be easy. City will look to get at Arsenal early, and with Arsenal's poor defence, they can get in front, and keep it until half time. Then in the second half, the question will be "What are Arsenal made of?", and I think they will answer it emphatically by coming from behind to win. Obviously this is a very speculative bet, but with nothing else interesting me in the Premier League this week, I fancy a small bet on this.

Well I got it half right, Man City led at half time. The problem was, they led at full time too!

In retrospect I put too much faith in Arsenal, and should've just staken Man City to be ahead at the break (the safer version of the bet I took, and still at a decent price too), but thats football.

Nothing much around again this week, fancied Villa to beat Fulham but theyre a little short, so have decided to take the same route as last week.

I'm going for Portsmouth HT Blackburn FT @ 41.00

Why? Pompey will start the game full of confidence after their midweek Milan battle, and with Defoe maybe back they can break the deadlock early against an out of form Blackburn. But fatigue may show in the 2nd half, Pompey put a LOT of effort in the Milan game, and less than 3 days later it could show. Blackburn will be well aware of Pompey's tendencies to leak late goals (Theyve dropped points by conceding goals in the last 15 minutes of games 5 times from their last 7 matches) so for me this is definitely worth a cheeky punt.

Week 17 top up of £100 makes the bank £1375.42
Week 17 - £375.42 on Ronaldo anytime scorer vs Sunderland @ 1.67 (Coral)
Bet stake £375.42
Bank after stake £1000
Bet returns £???
Week end balance £???

Bet only stands if Ronaldo starts, otherwise it ownt be "Placed".

United should destroy an awful Sunderland side this weekend, and Ronaldo is at the heart of everything United do good. Freekicks and penalties are also his, so his chances of scoring against a side that shipped 4 against Bolton last week are good, and 1.67 looks a decent price.
