I intend to use the tenner bet for highest priced winner last week in either the Silver or Gold Cup at Ayr. Any winnings to your MC charity,of course.
Thing is,I reckon the ground will be very much on the firm side.
Now,usually in a cavalry charge at Ayr,the high draw has the advantage. But I think on the firmer ground,it goes the other way. Hopefully,a wee scoot at the Racing Post article on the race will tell me whether my memory is playing me false or not.
Either way,winnings from your tenner to MC,and I will put a tenner on my NAP for the day for CRUK. Hopefully,one of them will win. Sod it,fiver double too,why not?
Unfortunately I didn’t get home in time to see the match, but have it recorded. I’ll look at it later this evening. From family members reports, comments on here yesterday evening and Bobbys match report above, I think I have a pretty clear picture of how it panned out. A bit more quality in the final third, and despite us still needing to be a bit wiser to the counter attack, and we’d be sitting on three points. ( perhaps more actually but three for sure)
I’ve been sitting looking at the table this morning and the various permutations as to where we might finish in this group.
Second place is most definitely still up for grabs, and if we take 4 points in the back to back games v Leipzig it gets very interesting. Is that possible? Yes. Is it likely? Given their position in the group, zero points from the two games so far, I think it’s fair to say the next match for them is win or bust. Win and they’ve still a chance of second or third spot. Lose and it’s going to take an awful lot for them to avoid the wooden spoon. A draw putting them on one and us on two points, doesn’t really help them, but could be huge for us.
I’m well aware of the old cliché about assumption, but nevertheless I’m going to assume Shaktar will lose in Madrid in their next match in three weeks time.
If I’m correct, a win away at Leipzig would be absolutely massive for us.
Celtic 4 points
Shaktar 4 points
With home games to follow v Leipzig and Shaktar and the opportunity to accumulate the 10 points which would almost certainly see us through in second spot.
Taking 4 points from Leipzig over the next two ties would take us to 5 points. In that instance, we need to hope Madrid turn Shaktar over twice in those back to back games, leaving it
Meaning a home match win v Shaktar would see us through in second spot regardless of what happened in Madrid in the final tie as the table would then read
Madrid 12, 13 or 15
Leipzig 0,1 or 3
Lose next match? It’s still possible to go through in second, as the table would probably read
meaning we would need to get two wins at home v Leipzig and Shaktar, and that would suffice given we’d win the head to head v Shaktar, again, assuming Madrid keep winning
Regardless of what score we got in Madrid, we’d go through on head to head result v Shaktar. We’re due a turn at qualifying with just 7 points, given the times we’ve gone out with more!
We need Madrid to win those next three games. Take at least one point next week and win our home games v both Leipzig and Shaktar and we will go through to the knock out ties in the CL.
Lose next week and it’s not disastrous if we can win our two home games, AND, as I say, Madrid keep winning.
The circumstances which would see us fail even if we got two home wins to sit on 7 points after losing in Leipzig? Shaktar taking points off Madrid in those back to back games, or Leipzig beating Madrid in game 5, having beaten us in game 3. They’d be playing their final tie v Shaktar with a big incentive to win.
Oh I know, if my grandad had…….but….I think we’re going to qualify!!
Saw you’re messsge on the naps thread. Yes, just shout when you’ve decided yer free bet. I’d been trying to keep the nags talk over there, but clearly little to nobody reads it other than a Saturday.😁
Sooooooo…. fae noo…. I’ll update the table weekly on there but withoot any narrative. Just the table.
What’s the chance of a reverse forecast this year with you and CCB!! First and second? Could happen… Gl 👏
When I say double,I mean forecast.
Put the tenner on your nap,please. I’ll put a tenner on mine plus a fiver f/c with yours for CRUK.
Sound ok? It will hopefully sound better if one of them wins,of course!

Good luck all
Best of luck everyone
That’s very kind of you. Truly great gesture, but honestly bud, no requirement to offer up yer ( hopefully) winnings to the charity. A small donation by all means if you feel you wish to, but no need whatsoever to give it all. As I say, fantastic gesture and very much appreciated but I’d rather you benefitted personally too.
A wee donation of a fiver or so at the end of the competition by the naps participants to one of the charities benefiting this year, JNP’s , Bobbys or the Molly Olly one , would be welcomed I’m sure.
Thanks again . Top Bhoy.
Morning Twists et al… today’s unfortunate nag is What’s the Story hirpling along in the 1.20 at Ayr. I’ve had a couple of seconds the last few weeks so hopefully this yin has got the legs for a first! Cheers again, Twists and good luck to you all!

Good luck all!
Hi twisty call it an entry fee for your competition where you put your own money up as prizes n take so much of your time organising it. Hopefully the deserving charity benefits from my bet and paddypowers free bet. Will be sharing the link with family and friends also 👍.
Bernardo O’Reilly 2.30 Ayr.
That’s a smashing charity, that one.
Good luck all.
Edward Cornelius Silver Cup Ayr
Some double indeed Bobby. If that pulls, ye’ll be banned. 😁
Yeah they do good work, as do pretty much all these selfless charities. We’re fortunate to be able to throw money away on betting, and even more fortunate to have the health to be here to do it.
It’s an unfair world amigo. We should all do our bit , however great or small, to help.

Thanks Twisty 🙏🏻
Another second place!! 🤬🤬🤬
Well done St Tam’s…beat me to it @12/1! Bassa!! 🤬😁
Tremendous selection Sir..Well done.
So unlucky,hopefully it’s a winner for you next week.
It’s just fun for me, DannyMac23. I had an unexpected win a couple of weeks ago that drew nowt but ire and ridicule from the Organiser…not sure it’s worthwhile having a winner now, tbh! 🤣🤣🤣
Ooops…forgot to change my Nom de Plume form yesterday!! 😱
It’s great fun.Most people think it’s easy to pick a winner,we know different.Grateful to Twisty taking time out to run the competition been there and it’s difficult.
Whatever you pick next week will be in my lucky 15.
Winner for sure.
First two up on my L/15 and got 12/1and 16/1on them. Next two were much shorter prices-including my nap. Bloody typical.
Unlucky B,great double,one more would have been great 4 winners would have been fantastic.One of these days.
Keep punting it will happen.😀💚
Unlucky Bobby, I had two 22/1 winners yesterday marching army and barefoot Angel but they were on different lines and couldn’t get another winner with any of them or pick one of them as my nap.
Twisty the free bet builder bet was so close with 8 of the 9 selections coming up, was hoping wolves would score but as they were down to 10 men after half an hour it was highly unlikely. I made a small donation to the charity and have passed the link on this morning.
Only a brace of winners to report from week 13 of the competition, but two very good winners they were. Headliner this week is undoubtedly ST TAMS who chose the Katie Scott winner Gweedore. Returned at 12/1 it rockets St Tams up the table into 3rd spot.
Danny Mac was the other successful tipster this week with his selection, the Hugo Palmer runner Rajinksy hitting the line over a length clear at a nice price of 9/2.
Congratulations to both St Tams and Danny.

Some of us getting close to the magical break-even point,where even if we don’t pick another winner in the 40 week competition,we end up in profit.
So there’s an incentive for us all…
