It was the military and political leader Napolean Bonaparte who is reputed to have said he preferred his generals to be lucky rather than good.
Given this, the pint-sized Frenchman would have been putting our football tipster in charge of the Russian front after the events of this weekend.
On Saturday we surmised that Arsenal might put quite a few goals past Watford, and thus 11/2 was a good price for Grant Xhaka to provide an assist. (Premier League: Xhaka the Creator)
Instead Watford won 2-1, but Xhaka did indeed create Arsenal’s only goal, allowing our subscribers to collect.
And then on Sunday, we felt goals would be in short supply at both the Brighton/Everton and Southampton/Newcastle games. We suggested subscribers position for two goalless draws by also betting on a draw double. (Premier League: Bore draws…)
The games didn’t quite turn out as expected, but two late penalties, one scored by Everton and the other by Southampton, meant subscribers collected on the draw double, a nice 10/1 touch.
Hopefully our fortune holds as October continues!
