    Has anybody put any bets on this season? Perhaps on the Champions League, the World Cup, or a particular European League (Serie A, Premiership, Ligue 1 etc)?
    FD, i imagine you have ;)
    I've personally put a bit on Hamburg to win the Bundesliga, a while back. :D Yeah, Bayern will most likely win it, but it's worth a try. They're not doing to badly. I'll be following Hamburg this season then :thumbup: [-o<

    So anyone placed any bets? Would be interseted to know.

    :mrgreen: hehe..........actuall I ain't bid on any of that.

    Although every week (sometimes twice) I bid on European games which includes the likes of England, Scotland, Germany, Spain, Italy, Holland, Belgium, Turkey, Greece etc etc.

    I actually think that this season there won't be many shocks in terms of league winners.

    What I fancy for most major leagues & comps:-

    World Cup - Brazil (just look awesome)

    Champs Lge - Juventus (although I'm also thinking Barca)

    Italy - Juventus

    Spain - R.Madrid

    Scotland - Celtic

    England - Chelsea

    Holland - PSV

    France - Lyon

    Germany - Bayern Munich

    So with the teams above, wouldn't be worth a bet unless it was a accumulator and still probably wouldn't amount to much.

    Hi chaps

    i used to bet far more in my youth, well actually not that far back really but when i didnt have so many responsibilities.

    still keep a few online accounts going to strike at any value and was considering (probably for the best) a 50/1 e/w on Ath Madrid for La Liga. Unfortuantly they only paid out on the first 2 rather than first 3 so i declined.

    When i do gamble thesedays its usually on longer priced away teams or bets where the bookies have (imo) got it wrong. Hamburg is a great bet Proff - what odds did you get ? did you take them just to win ?

    I think in term sof English footie its very hard to beat the bookies but in European/World football a bit of knowledge goes a long way.

    Hi mate. 16/1 on Hamburg to win the league, which is not bad really. (makes me an honorary fan this season :lol: )
    Agree with FD though. There's not much point betting on the leagues, but i thought i'd give the Bundesliga a chance. Hoping for Bayern to slip up and Hamburg to grab it.
    I often look for the good odds, eg 50/1 for a defender to score first or something. It happens. I'd say it's worth doing the CL. The past 2 seasons have shown that.
    I have a few ideas for the world cup too ;) Dark horses etc... I'll tell you this now. Brazil won't win it. (Coming from the man who predicted Greece to win Euro 2004 ;) )

    Ah the ML guys are here and into betting...there is no betting culture in Belgium...
    But i agree with the Prof: Brazil will not be World Champions...Italy or Germany seem more likely to me....
