That sounds exciting! I've just begun dabbling in sports betting myself, and I've even taken advantage of promo codes from Melbet and on the website. However, lacking analysis skills, my betting outcomes are infrequently favorable, resulting in more losses than wins. Consequently, I'm seeking expert predictions from external sources to enhance my performance. I'm hopeful that your insights will be beneficial for me.

what have you done to the Saturday football daily? its gone from national to Premier league. it is now awful. please return to the old format of going around the grounds with the commentators telling you about the games. it's really poor.

Adrian Lord

this has been the worst Saturday football show. no music, no headlines, a real disappointment. I really enjoy this podcast but this was more like the Sunday show. a truly awful episode.

Tash Dowie's one eyed analysis is ridiculous. Curtis Jones red card was 100% correct, over the ball, possible leg breaker. if the ref's botched the offside sure, that is unfortunate. Mistakes happen
