“I’m going to throw myself in the Thames”

Reporting from Bet Chat HQ, south west London…

I really hate computers.

Today is Football Index Intelligence newsletter day, which consists of me editing the copy that I receive from Adam Gibbs, and sending it to Bet Chat Bec who makes it look pretty.

Sounds simple doesn’t it?

Only today my computer decided to save two versions of the newsletter, both with exactly the same file name, but one with my edits made and one without.

This resulted in me sending the wrong version to Bec, who got halfway through laying it out before realising and having to start all over again.

Cue swearing.

I then opened the correct file which decided, for no apparent reason, to overwrite itself with the original, unedited file.

Cue more swearing and threats to top myself in the river.

Why would a computer do these things? What crazed developer decided that it was a good idea to be able to have two files with exactly the same name on a device, one that auto saves and one that does not? What possible benefit does that provide?

Anyway, that’s my rant for the day over. Thank you for listening.

August’s fantasy football winners

With all of August’s Premier League action now completed, we now know two things for certain…

  1. Liverpool are head and shoulders above everyone else (who’d have thought, given they won the league by a country mile just a few short weeks ago…)
  2. Who our first monthly Bet Chat Fantasy Football winners are

In first place, and the winner of a free one month subscription to racing service, Improvers, is Jon Wilson with his team, 11KneelingSlaves.

In second place, and the winner of £15 of Bet Chat credit is Francis Connell and his team, Deganwy X1.

Congrats to Jon and Francis! To claim your prizes, please email me at

As for my own start to the season, poor doesn’t do it justice. But you know what they say… it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish ?.
