Dream Team Bets Club: New manager narrative and the battle for second place


It’s a funny old game, isn’t it?

Who would have thought back in August that by December Liverpool fans would be hoping that Man City take points off *checks notes* Leicester to maintain their 10 point lead at the top of the table?

Well that’s where we are and you could say the title race is nearly over, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t coin to be won this weekend.

City v Leicester is alright but the real narrative will be coming at ya from Goodison Park where Freddie Ljungberg will be taking charge of Arsenal for the last time.

He’ll be going up against Duncan Ferguson in the Everton hotseat and if you can find me a more stark clash of cultures then I will be highly impressed.

Freddie will be making way for the equally-handsome Mikel Arteta after this one, while ‘Big Dunc’ will be taking a step back to be replaced by everyone’s favourite eyebrow-raiser Carlo Ancelotti.

Sunday is serving up a real treat with Jose Mourinho hosting his former golden boy Frank Lampard. Oof.

Here’s Betway’s best for this weekend:

  • ARESENAL TO WIN AND BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE, 7/2 WITH BETWAY – There is nothing quite like the promise of a new manager to transform out of form players into superstars.
  • MAN CITY TO WIN OR DRAW, BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE, JAMIE VARDY TO SCORE AND NICOLAS OTAMENDI TO BE CARDED , 9/1 WITH BETWAY AND GET A FREE £5 BET – Betway will give you a free fiver if you back a £5 Betyourway on this game. Decent.


Score another one Marcus? Yes of course you did

I’ve got news for you baby, you’re looking at the man.

Marcus Rashford is going from precocious talent to ruthless goalscorer and we absolutely love to see it.

His midweek goal against Colchester was his 14th of the season and means he is enjoying the most prolific campaign of his career, all of this just in time for the Euros.

He made it nine goals in his last 10 games for club and country and these days if United win, Rashford will be scoring, so let’s all get behind him.


Unstoppable force meet immovable object

Unstoppable force meet immovable object

The greatest football match in the world delivered an almost unheard of damp squib this week.

For the first time in 17 years Barcelona vs Real Madrid ended 0-0, Lionel Messi didn’t score and it means the last time Los Blancos beat their arch rivals was in April 2016.

So Bets Clubbers, how many coupons did the stalemate ruin on Wednesday evening?

At a guess we reckon Messi to score, both teams to score and Barcelona to win would have been the big favourites of the night.

All duff.


Yep, good defending there m8

You’ll have to wait until Monday night when Wigan play Blackburn in a tasty Lancashire derby for your weekly dose of losing at half time, winning at full time madness.

Wigan haven’t actually won a game in their last five while Blackburn have had the sweet taste of victory in four of their last five and the Latics are on the road.

But the Championship is exactly the kind of batsh*t crazy place that Wigan rock up to Ewood Park, concede early and then walk away with all three points.

It’s a lovely 40/1 with Betway.
