Blinkered Views risky punt against St Mirren


In his Bookies Corner article for the current issue of CQN Magazine, columnist, Blinkered Views, suggested St Mirren offered good value for a punt on relegation.  I spoke to him when he submitted the article and suggested, “Surely Dunfermline?”  He agreed Dunfermline were most likely for the drop but they offered no value.  St Mirren, on the other hand, were 9/1 for the drop and he made a good case why this was worth a bet.

St Mirren promptly spoiled Christmas for thousands (not your or me) by coming from behind to beat Rangers but that has been their only win in 8 league games.  We also don’t need to be reminded that when visiting St Mirren Park, form is a poor guide.  Celtic exited the Scottish Cup there a week after beating Saints 7-0 at Celtic Park.  They are a team who can raise their game for the big occasion and the visit of Celtic, live on TV, is as big as it gets around Paisley.

Paddy McCourt has enjoyed his visits there and has been key to Celtic collecting the points a couple of times.  Don’t be surprised if he makes a match winning appearance from the bench.

    I hope Celtic are getting ready for a big scrap on these issues.





    “What to do if, thats not the case ?”



    Then Celtic, rather than the Huns, will feel the aftershocks for years to come. You can’t harp on about the need for good housekeeping and then do nothing when other clubs are being excused for reeking financial havoc.



    I have no idea what the board are thinking, but it would be a catastrophic mistake for Celtic to allow any level of leniency to take place.



    No point in speculating about it – we’ll find out what happens sooner rather than later.

    I think it would be a round robin mate. Just watch out for that each way bet though. Winners and places don’t cross as I found out to my chagrin. You might be better backing them each way all the way (I think that is the term) so there would be only the each way bet to consider. More experienced gamblers on here might be able to give you better advice.


    Gotta run.

    Rankers have to pay £250K within 30 days for Celik



    Rankers only real opportunity for income , other than selling a player is v us on 25/3 – there will be hospitality as well as the £336K that they’ll be asking us for .



    Wanna bet they’ll return the favour and ask for money up front ?

    Good point, Skacel seems to pop up with goals in games like that but does nowt else. Ive not heard of many hearts players getting praise/noticed outwith their games against Celtic. That heartz team are very average much like most spl players.





  16. Cadizzy – there is speculation that her father was the pool player Minnesota Fats.



    Having seen Etta on the ole You Tube it was a good bit of acting by wee Beyonce to play her in that film.

  17. the Guardian article mentions that she always maintained that Fats was her father.



    Listening to her singing “At Last” right now

    Does this complaint remind you of any other group of lunatic extremists?

    Manchester United’s teenage prospect Ravel Morrison, whose turbulent lifestyle has made his club despair, is understood to be demanding £30,000 a week for his new professional contract in the face of a £12,000-a-week offer from the club.



    Morrison, 18, is out of contract in the summer and United have already rejected a £500,000 offer from Newcastle United for a player rated as one of the best to come out of the club’s academy in some time. Once regarded as a natural successor to Paul Scholes, Morrison’s development has stalled this season and he has made just three senior appearances in all.



    Unprecedented for a young United player, he has also taken to Twitter to defy Sir Alex Ferguson who said last week that Morrison had been made an offer of a new professional contract but had rejected it, describing the teenager’s demands as “unrealistic”.



    This week Morrison tweeted: “I have never 1s [sic] turned down a contract off united”. Yesterday, via Twitter, he tried to assure fans that he would not go to Manchester City: “ have never been in my mind and who ever tells you I’m movin [there] ignore them.”



    Morrison has a worrying background of brushes with the law, including pleading guilty to two counts of witness intimidation which led to a 12-month referral order which expired this month. He has a police caution for assaulting his mother. He has also had disciplinary issues with United.



    There have been suggestions that Arsène Wenger would be willing to take a risk on Morrison if United were prepared to let the player leave for nothing in the summer. However, his demands to be paid £30,000 a week are ambitious in the extreme for a player who has so little first-team experience and appears to be high maintenance.



    On Wednesday, Rio Ferdinand tweeted that he had spoken to Morrison. “I’ve told him what I think of him and what he needs to do to fulfil it,” Ferdinand wrote, later adding it would be a “big waste if it all goes t***s up”.
