    [i:x1iomku0]Yes, yes, that was another of my trebles that surprisingly went disastrously wrong – last minute goal for Bologna in injury time – er, the bets are all for 90 minutes of play, does injury time count as a draw for the game or is my ‘win’ selection here still wrong then? I.e: 90 minutes it was 1-0 to Juventus, but IN injury time Bologna levelled. Ta. yes, I think it’s safe to say I’ve complicated matters. Thanks if anyone has any input[/b:x1iomku0][/b[/i:x1iomku0]].[/color:x1iomku0]

    Checked it on Coral (Who I bet with) and lovely, lovely Bologna’s injury time equaliser stands. Very nice of them to put that goal in against the near the top team, Juventus, oh I’m so happy[/color:316ixwi6].

    The term ’90 minutes’ is used only to differentiate extra time (in the case of cup matches), from regular time (which includes injury time and stoppages).

    If, like me, you had backed Manchester United and Celtic last weekend, you would have been more than happy with the extended 90 minutes rule. :wink:

    Hard luck Naseby; we’ve all been there. You have my sympathy for what it’s worth.
    (Does anyone remember those backward days when, if you selected a HOME win in a league game, you had to have a MINIMUM of 5 selections? Seems so backward nowadays.)

    I remember reading a guide book to fixed-odds betting back in the eighties (or was it the seventies?), that had many excellent pieces of advice for the punter who was serious about making fixed-odds betting pay. (I think the book was called something like "MR2 – Maximise Return / Minimise Risk). One of the biggest points made was something like "…to avoid shocks, don’t back teams below a certain price " Seems obvious, but it’s good advice, advice I wished I stayed with in years gone by:-(
    I can’t remember what that price was – maybe 8/15 or 1/2. I wish I’d bought the book (I’d borrowed it from a friend). Much of the advice is irrelevant now that you can do singles. but I had a long, winning record over a few years when I adhered rigidly to the staking plan and selection criteria the author(s) recommended. (One local bookie – Corbetts – even told me not to place bets in such a manner after I’d had another good week.) Ah, those were the days. I’ve given it all back to them by now though.
