“GTL: Gym, Tan, Laundry”

Reporting from McBet Chat HQ, the east coast of Scotland…

Despite yesterday morning’s portents of doom and a subsequent incident where I managed to get on the wrong connecting train, I did eventually make it to my destination in Scotland, hurrah!

I then had a nice little 11/2 winner on the Champions League qualifying, hurrah again!

Alas, that was the last hurrah for the day, as a picture from Bet Chat Bec filtered through, reminding me that, after one too many cancelled flights to Australia, she had instead taken a trip to sunny Spain.

Still, the east coast of Scotland is just as good as the south coast of Spain, right guys?

Guys?

Full steam ahead

One thing that’s certainly more Spanish sun than Scottish storms is my annual Premier Bets guide and I’m making good progress with this year’s edition…

In fact, I’ve already flagged up a 20/1 shot which I’m very keen on indeed.

As I said yesterday, this will actually be the 10th edition of the guide, but in case you’ve never seen it before, I thought I’d share with you a page from last season…

Take a look here.

As always, this year will include a page on each team packed full of analysis, plus real value bets. It should be ready next week and I look forward to sharing it.

“No excuses this time. They’re just awful”

Reporting from The Train, somewhere on the east coast of England…

Today is one of those days.

This morning, en route to Kings Cross, I stopped off at the local delivery office to pick up my dad’s birthday present, as I’d been out when the postman came round.

Now this was actually my second attempt to collect it. The first time I turned up in the afternoon, only to be told that the opening hours on the missed delivery slip, Google AND the front door of the delivery office were all incorrect, and it was currently only open from 7am to 9am.

Annoying but fine. Covid and all that.

So, attempt number two this morning, and my last chance to collect my dad’s gift before heading up to visit him.

I arrive at 8:30am. It’s closed.

I speak to a sheepish looking Post Office employee…

“I’m afraid the delivery office is closed on Wednesdays currently”

So, while every other business in town is back up and running with normal opening hours, the Post Office’s delivery office… 

  1. is only open two hours a day and…
  2. can’t even manage that gargantuan workload, so also has to close on Wednesdays.

Isn’t privatisation just wonderful! I don’t know what all the fuss is about when it comes to privatising the NHS!! Let’s privatise everything!!!

Oh, and to top it all off, I bought an avocado and halloumi muffin from Leon for breakfast, got on the train, and discovered that they’d forgotten the halloumi… a fairly important ingredient in an avocado and halloumi muffin.

As I said, today is one of those days.

Something to look forward too

Still, I did make the train at least and am using the five hour journey to get stuck into this year’s edition of Premier Bets.

For those unaware, this is my annual Premier League betting preview, and this one will actually be the 10 year anniversary edition. That’s a hell of a lot of value ante-post bets!

Last season was yet another winning one, with shouts such as Leicester top six at 5/1, Burnley top 10 at 5/1 and Norwich to finish bottom at 4/1 and this season should be no different.

All being well it should be ready next week, but I shall keep you posted.
