    If he made no contribution to the Northants game then how could he have made any difference?

    To be fair though Neil, the whole country knew that, because they made a big song and dance out of the fact the schedules didn't help them.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Nothing wrong with having a few quid on when the odds are right. After all, it is only keeping up the traditions of our forefathers who originally made this great game popular.

    i sense some ironic undertones to that post there raju..i hope so anyway.

    But what was Giddens thinking of, in a time where match fixing etc is a particularly sensitive topic, the last thing you want to do is place a bet on a game where you may have some influence or at least know a bit of inside info.

    how much did he put on?

    Seems like the ideal time to get the money down.

    The bookies didn't do their homework (and as a consequence the odds were wrong) and got stung. They always cry when someone takes them for a few sovs.
