Bookies Invent New Bet For Southampton FC
Friday, 12th Mar 2021 09:57
It was no surprise when Moussa Djenepo limped out of Saints game at Sheffield United injured, this is now an established custom in any Southampton fixture, someone has to go off injured, but it is no laughing matter as Ralph Hasenhuttl's injured list goes back up to six, but there is money to be made.
Those who like a bet on football games often put a few quid on the first Saints goal scorer, but a new bet has emerged, "The First To Go Off Injured"
This is now being offered by several on line betting companies exclusively for Southampton FC only.
Odds can now be found on every Saints squad member to be the first off injured for the game against Brighton and there are also other combinations that can be used.
You can combine first goal scorer with first off injured, as well as half time/full time injury scores, ie no one off by half time and one injury in the second half etc.
There is also what is being referred to as the Cluedo bet, this is where you state the first off the pitch injured along with the injury and the place sustained. Takumi Minamino with a hamstring in the penalty area is currently being offered at a very attractive 10/1.
As a service to our readers we publish what we consider the best odds for this weekend's game against Brighton.
First injured - Kyle Walker Peters 10/1
Combi Bet - Injury first half, no injuries second 7/1
Cluedo Bet - Although we have mentioned Takumi Minamino, he perhaps doesn't offer value as we say in the Turf Accountant industry, however Stuart Armstrong does for a hamstring injury in the centre circle. 75/1
First Goalscorer & First off injured - Takumi Minamino 25/1
Double - Che Adams to get first goal & Nathan Tella off injured at any point 50/1
Treble - Che Adams to score first goal, Nathan Tella to go off injured at any point and Pompey fans to claim there were 60,000 of them at Wembley on Saturday for their game against Salford City. 1/50 on. Very low odds there is no way that Pompey fans will not be able to mention how great their support was at Wembley.
Accumulator - Che Adams to score first goal, Nathan Tella to go off injured at any point and Pompey fans to claim there were 60,000 of them at Wembley on Saturday for their game against Salford City and John Petersfield Born & Bred Westwood to fall off the top of a World record breaking 350 wooden pallets on the back of a flat bed truck in the Wembley car park. Evens.
There are a lot of good odds available at all good online bookmakers.

Well, these sure are strange times at Colchester United, particularly for a club (nor a Chairman) not usually associated with the ‘managerial revolving door’ approach. With results not matching expectations or even minimum requirements, and a brief spell after being appointed Interim Head Coach, Wayne Brown has been released to return to the Jammers, for whenever their pandemic-interrupted football restarts. In comes not one, or two, but three new ‘appointments’. Hayden Mullins steps up as Head Coach to the end of the season, Joe Dunne apparently comes back to the U’s in a sort of unofficial coaching/ team-spirit sort of role, and exceptionally experienced lower-league former Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale arrives to provide Hayden with advice and support – crikey!

This afternoon the U’s take on Bradford City in a bid to gather sufficient points to stay clear of the bottom two. It’ll be a tough gig though, even if (as I suspect) Bradford City have left it a bit too late to challenge the play-off spots. They were on a decent run of form, that is until defeats at Newport, Carlisle, Scunthorpe and a goalless draw at home to Oldham put paid to any lingering promotion hopes. For us, it’s simple, to stay out of the bottom two, for all intents and purposes we only need to gain half (or more) of the points that Grimsby or Southend do. Sounds easy, just wish I felt more confident we will…

Today we learned the sad news that Peter Lorimer has passed away, aged 74, after a long-term illness. Love or loathe Revie’s Leeds, no one can deny that “Hotshot Lorimer” was a truly magnificent footballer, and his passing is a sad day for the global football family.

As I rather expected, work has been somewhat manic in recent days, so I'm not going to have time for a blog ahead of the match tonight, so soz about that.

Editorials are tricky these days without being too downcast, but let’s be honest, there’s not much good news around the club and fanbase at the moment. On a personal positive note, I have my first vaccine jab booked for next weekend, which is a blessed relief. Seemingly being one of the young’uns on the U’sual, I hope many of you have already trod that path, and those yet to won’t be too far behind. It’s a cliché of course, but there really are more important things than football at present. Stay safe and get vaccinated folks, let’s make sure we all get through this together and come out the other side, wherever the U’s will be at that point…
