Lovely night of trading, last night. Had the average goal time of the Scotland game down as 44 minutes, so was expecting a late one. Which meant I could comfortably back 0-0 at KO, leave it in and trade out at 6's to cover, should the game finish goal-less. Fortunately, Scotland grabbed one not long after HT and the price went out to a fairly generous 8.8. Straight out with a nice green.
Was really surprised at the backlash after the England performance. I laid them and backed 1-0, 2-0, 3-0 and 2-1, couldn't see them trouncing Wales in the way everyone seemed to expect. The inclusion of Frank "I'll pass it every way except forward" Lampard was never a great one, IMO. Still not sure why he's playing Johnson through the middle. I know he scored but his link up with Rooney is likely to be much better from the left.
Did a similar trade on the Switzerland v Bulgaria game. Bulgaria went 0-1 up quite early so I took the green on the lay and left the scores in. Came out for a nice green on both after Switzerland went 2-1 up.
Having a little tickle on the golf this week. Hansen made for really good trading in the PGA, so a small back @ 30's in the KLM might pay dividends, we'll see.
No football today. Whatever you trade, stay green.
