POSTED: 7 January 2011
I absolutely hate the first week of January for a myriad of reasons; the bitter English winter, the New Year resolutions which we can’t keep, and of course the effing F.A. Cup. Try saying FA Cup without reading it with the two punctuation marks and you might just get an idea.
Speaking of screw ups, rumour has it that despite the festive season, the bars seem to be going out of business as our dear old Dr. Jameson is staying sober and away from the drinks on account of his wife. Why would anyone want to listen to a man who listens to his wife???
Anyway, back to this week’s tips. Since I love a good curry, I’m going to pick two Indian teams in the FA Cup, Blackburn Rovers vs Queens Park Rangers. Rovers are -0.5 on the Asian handicap with a decent price of 1.96 and though QPR may be top of the Championship, they are still a divison away and a class apart from Blackburn who are usually pretty decent at Ewood Park.
