Time to dust off the Hills account again.

£80 Poshies to get promoted, 9-2.

Nobody in L1 will sign better this summer than we have already. Pym, Butler and Eisa for a club-record fee all incred pick-ups.

Dont like this at all. You've been a long long way off the pace for the last couple seasons. I think your final season has actually been quite flattering. Sunderland, pompey would still be stronger then you even with those signings. Not to mention teams coming down and the couple rogue one season wonders (Shrewsbury/rochdale/doncastsr) etc I dont think 9-2 is value at all

Thoughts on Liverpool Wolves goals over 2.5 at evens? I would be hesitant to recommend it as I’m sure there are many more people in the know more then me itt. But seems a good price?

awful as if the horse wins you get paid somewhere between 0 and 10%. I would ask to see the slip to prove the bet was on, obv he'd have given you 380 and not mentioned it had it won but at least you can see was actually placed.

very tilting.

i had a spot at a bookies at Cheltenham, went to Ladbrokes had 2 bets one of which i had 250ew on a horse at 14/1. The horse placed so was due 1100 odd back, went into collect (with a ticket that said xxx horse 250ew 14/1 on it) the guy ushered me outside to speak to me... he told me the bet came back just as i was leaving the shop @10/1, he ran outside to find me but couldnt. He voided the whole bet and put £500 in tbe safe for me to give me next time i come in. Upshot is I am getting 500 not 1100.

He told me if i complained i could be banned from all Ladbrokes shops and that he could be fired and essentially pleaded with me to accept the 500 back and forget about it.

What do you do?

Seems more straightforward to me.  You have the slip, surely they have to pay?  They can't void a bet if you know nothing about the voiding?  Obviously the chance of getting banned from Ladbrokes is high after any winning bet, but can't see how asking to be paid correctly changes that.

Not sure why most think the fella is a thief in the original post.   The bloke explained why he couldn't take both bets to OP.  He let him have one, OP didn't accept it, started making unreasonable demands and stormed out of shop.  Bloke behind counter is left in a horrid position as race has started and punter has stormed off.  

Just assume he had good intentions and move on.   Saying it is 0% to 10% he had good intentions is a pretty shitty way to view the World.   Moving on saves a lot of continuing anger, and people getting worked up over something minor seems to be the reason it all went wrong.

I just can't think why I would do anything other than say "thanks, no problem" when offered the one bet after the race has started.  The bloke behind the counter has bent the rules after the race has started for me (to be fair, I am happy to get any bet on these days).



I'd hardly call it storming off, I left the counter to watch the race. I should of pointed out when I said I walk off, I mean I walk away from the counter. I never left the shop.

He never made any mention to me about owning the £40, until I cashed the bet in. Even when I did that, he didn't even say he was withholding the money he just paid it out to me less. He didn't verbally announce the amount j was being paid,it was only after i counted it.

What so because I didn't say thank you, I'm in the wrong? He offered me one get, while I was not happy with it, by handing him £40 for one bet, being given 1 betslip and then walking away with it with the assistant moving on to the next customer. Essentially I am accepting it. How I can I then be liable for a bet I can't collect if it wins? I go back and say 'hey remember that bet that I tried to bet, but didn't have the money for, so you didn't give me the slip. Can you pay me please?'

I don’t really think there’s a good answer here, the way things have worked out, you’ve made it very difficult for him. Hard to know how you can justify wanting “both bets or none of them” when you only have money for one of the bets. Also sounds like he’s made a total mess of things. When you walk away from the clearly unresolved situation, it feels like you’re then giving up control of what happens. It’ll be interesting to see what the others think.....

Well my thinking was if he can void the bet, just void them both, if he can't then clearly I just owe him both from my winning slip.

Either he gave you a slip for the 2nd losing bet or he didn't.

If he didn't then he needs to pay the £380 simples.

No, he gave me 1 slip, and kept the other.

After some pearls of wisdom.

I went in to a Coral shop in London to place a bet on a horse. Watched the race in the shop and the horse won comfortably for £380. There were 2 horses I liked in the next race so went up to the counter with 2 slips for £20 e/w and my winning ticket. There was a slight delay with him sorting out another bet and I wasn't sure if my bets would get on on time. He waved to me so I handed them all to the guy (only member of staff in there). He ran through the 2 bets, then when it went to cashing the winnings in he said it hadn't come in yet. As he said it the race set off so he is now sitting there with all 3 tickets.

He is visibly annoyed and says he needs cash. I say to him come on you saw that horse win the last race I just wanted to use £80 of the £380. He reiterates he needs cash. I reach in my pocket and only have £40, inform him that's all I have and pass it to him. He gives me 1 slip and the winning bet. I start saying I only want both bets or none of them, he is getting visibly more angry and starts shouting he can't and that I should have had the cash somso I just walk off.

The horse for the slip I had lost, as did the one I didn't.

Here's where i am unsure of it being slightly shady.

When I eventually go back 5 mins later to get the £380 for the winning one, he only gives me £340 and says the £40'is for the other one.

My argument was, if he was going to do that, why did when I say I want both or none, did he say I could only have 1 because that's what I gave him cash for. If the one he hadnt gave me had won, I would have been an annoyed but no way would I have expected to get paid. I tried to reason with him that it's unfair because he had never told me I was liable for that bet, how can it be up to him to deduct my winnings.

I 1000% understand where he's coming from in regards to needing to have the cash/available funds before hand. I'd just expect one bet to be voided?

I am because you’re mentioning  Ozil and £550k.

 He’s getting £350k a week, less after tax.  So what’s £550k got to do with anything?

If he is getting £350k AFTER tax when you gross it up his gross salary before tax will be circa £550k.  The cost to Arsenal before employers NI as well.

The bbc have changed their report now to say BEFORE tax.  No problem.  It said AFTER tax a while ago i am sure.

I understand how gross and net salary’s and how tax work.

You said that he got £350k before tax (correct) and the sentence after that that would work out at £550k. Misreading something in an article or not - those statements would still be wrong

£350k after tax means after tax.  Net salary.  The club has to gross up the figure to give him £350k a week net.  That would be close to £550k a week gross on my rough calcs.

Yes this is correct. Think you’ve confused people with the second paragraph of your original post. It’s been widely reported he’s getting £350k BEFORE tax, so not sure why you’re making reference to £550k after? As pointed out, he’ll end up with something closer to £200k after tax

think you are getting the wrong end of the stick here.

The ‘before tax’ was in relation to Ozil, as in his salary. He gets paid a gross of £350k then all the tax is sorted by him (£350k before tax). What he is left with with after paying all the necessary taxes is his salary after tax. As apposed to other players who manage to negotiate £xyz a week after tax, meaning the club are having to take into consideration all his other earnings and endorsements to what they are going to have to pay him to ensure he meets his contractual ‘net’.

Well where would they fanciitise about taking them then 😋.

28, London. Not a first date but relatively new.

I guess activity based things is probably the way forward, any unusual ideas? I guess crazy golf, bowling etc is probably seen as not being very original anymore?!

Think the longer I can stay away from a dance floor the better!!
