Les start with a great win against Man City tonight, for a while I've been saying I would take a loss in the champions league final against Barcelona and if we get a result there, then who knows. Been a spurs fan all my life, was born in Islington near Arsenal, and lived in Finsbury Park, which is completely Arsenal territory, However moved to Tottenham and actually lived on White hart lane till I was 7. We didn't have the technology we have now in regards to results so me and my brother would stay in the garden and waiting for the roar,  to find out if we had scored because we could hear the fans from our garden even though we were a fair distance away, 

Dunno when I first stated supporting spurs, but at the age of 6 I remember my horrible father laughing on the phone to someone because tears were running down my eyes because we had lost a major game, so my love from them started from a young age. "Can't smile without you" is one of the clubs slogan which sums it up. This is a general chit chat thread, but it would be interest to hear who you guys support and how it all started.

@Kinkerbells. Hey you, kinks with the football betting I need to recommend you do the both team to score coupon. It really is the only way you can win on the football. It's the only way I do at times,  predicting football results now is impossible. At least once they both score you can relax no late minute heart attacks. I will start posting on here the teams I think might do it, but don't really do the football much no more.

@spursman so I've only been getting on football for the last say 5 years and I'm still learning.i use flash scores to help me study and understand leagues and and what games mean what, if you get what I mean lol. I never bet on championship or premier ship purely on the basis I don't know enough.i bet league 1 league 2 and championship. I was betting on Scottish but I give up on them as they are too unpredictable. What I'm trying to say is I'm still learning and you know what I love it I love studying the league and that I'm not clued up on players but I feel I'm clued up on the leauges. I just dunno where I'm going wrong at the moment I really don't. Teams that are winning shouldn't be etc etc. But that's why I love football. Cause it's exciting and unpredictable. Xx

Right. Operation get kinks winning again. First rule no more betting on teams to win. The bet from now on will be both teams to score. Start with a fiver and build fromantic there. 4 teams will get us about 60/70 squid. Get a couple of those in and gradually increase to a tenner. No more tears for kinks.?

Barca gonna be interesting at United tonight. Think they will win the whole thing. 10/11 looks decent. But they would take a draw and fancy themselves at the camp nou. Btts I'm thinking, question is will United score??

Pogba is awful - he acts like he's one of the worlds best football players but in the majority of games he disappears or just awful . 

Mctominy ( excuse the spelling ) has been a lot better player than him all season 

rashford is like a Alex ferguson moulded player -  the way his end product isn't the greatest but he never gives up

Sorry my phone's playing up I'll start Saturday yeh?? Xx

Kinks it is great that your studying, your doing better than most already, you need to find more sources of football knowledge. May I start by suggesting the kick off website.

 

Weird that you don't do prem, you are top the pie league and know your stuff, plus more info around on the prem.

 

Season almost over so maybe start this properly next season, but you could Saturday.

  Like centipede I aim to take a break till september.  I lost a fair bit on Wednesday had ajax btts won. Villa btts and then the barca game. Fancied barca strong, head and heart but barca conceded 4 last game and with United at home did btts which made me sick. Did a chase bet on the nba that agonisingly lost by 1 point and it sent me into tilt mode and ashamed to say I hit the slots and they did what they always do but big time,  my fault and deserved. It's been coming to be honest, so break for me and back for the new season. Gl with your bets. Ps barcelona spurs final ?.

It's weird how I stay away from premiership but bet on every league but top on footy here. I agree lol. Maybe I should start but I only know bout that table and teams as I've watched soccer Saturday for most of the time i started taking interest in football. Listen I hope your doing ok I really do. It sounds like your struggling a bit and chasing a win from your recent losses. Big mistake if you are you it never ends well. If you wanna talk in private I'm always here babe. Hope your luck changes quickly and you get back on winning form again. ???Xxx???

I'm fine kinks. Slots grrrr. Stayed away from so long what makes matters worse is did not realise you could exclude casino on pokerstars. 6 month break for me. No gambling in any form until then.

Fudge arsenal did a job on napolI.  Hope they turn it around in naples.

As a Newcastle fan, Im having a little dabble on tonights game. Dont really fancy anything in outrights so Ive gone down the scorer route.

Providing Shelvey starts, 28 to 1 FGS screams value as he will be on set pieces, same thoughts for Ritchie for Pens at 28's too, although it remains to be seen if Almiron has assumed those duties.

Rafa will set the team up to play very deep, negating Vardy to an extent. I expect a few changes as last time we played leicester, we targeted the slow pace of Morgan with pacey players such as Yedlin,Kenedy and Atsu.

Will upload slips later if I have a bet, out on the fruities today so profit will hopefully give me a few risk free bets.

Thank you @Brownman24. After man City second leg and Liverpool on yesterday I thought I had seen it all then that moura second half happened. 

I was screaming and running into the other room before the ball even hit the back of the net. I have timed out on most accounts but had a small punt at 5/1 at 1-0 down was so tempted to go in again @25/1 but just couldn't do it. Spurs all my life since 7 and the greatest night I have ever witnessed.  

I remember going down the lane in 09 when we qualified for the first time. Scenes people on roofs on busses and everyone going mental. I really love klopp and Liverpool and what a final it should be. Kane and winks hopefully back. Coys

Oh yeah as Liverpool or spurs look to become kings of Europe two other teams aim to be the Queens.  I hope arsenal do it as to Chelsea but then chelsea win it. Great for English football to have 4 teams in both finals.

Any thoughts on tonight.

From the Netherlands, and from someone who had the worst football night ever witnessed, I........... congratulate you. Great comeback

Thank you burn. Your boys were great throughout the tournament, the football you played, the teams you beat were magnificent. Really hard to take going out on the 96 th minute I feel for you I really do, but our boys never give up.

It's a shame a lot of your top players wI'll be sold but that has always been the way. I've been to the arena and you youth development has always been superb, you should be very proud and at the same time I feel your pain.

Spoken to a lot of people in London today mostly fans of other clubs and they all seem to say the same thing if it's not their team in the final they would rather a foreign based team win it. I know on talksport jason CUndy and goldstein think that too. I'm starting to wonder if I'm wrong wanting both finals to be English based teams.  Obviously I hate arsenal with Chelsea and West ham coming a close second, I'm now thinking fudge it kind of but for the country and the league I think it would be great. Don't know? ?

@spursman Congrats mate!! Been enjoying watching the highlights this morning! 

Thoughts on tonight I think/hope both will scrape through but from a betting point can't really see anything worthwhile. 

I'm with you, I'd always want an english or scottish team to do well, but I guess some of the rivalries go back a long way. I don't think there has ever been an all english champions league final coupled with an all english europa league final so would be great to see!

I think so too mate, just seems like not many share that opinion. Starting to think I'm strange thinking that ?.

Might back the other two to qualify now ?

Both english teams to qualify is around 8/11 which isn't too bad. 

I like over 3.5 goals, over 5.5 cards and over 8.5 corners in the Arsenal match for 8/1

I'd rather have had a Barcelona vs Ajax final personally. I don't really like Barcelona, but I dislike Liverpool more. I don't mind Spurs to an extent, but I quite like Ajax for the Van Der Sar connection to the team I support. In my opinion we have ended up with the worst Champions League final lineup since Porto v Monaco 16 years ago! What are they even Champions of? 3rd and 4th place last season, lol. Also as a Utd fan I never saw much support from other English people in the 4 CL Finals Utd have been in, in recent memory. I won't watch the final most likely as it seems more like a League Cup final, and who gives a fuck about the Coca Cola Cup or whatever its called now?!
