A-League VIII – Round 1

It’s been a long time since I publicly tipped on A-League, and am going to try my hand today at this weeks opening round of Season 8. Despite the coaching changes since last season seeming to suggest this should be a win for the blue side of Melbourne, I’m going to tip with my heart […]

A-League Tips – 2006 – Round 2, 3 and 4

Couldn’t get organised enough to post my A-League tips for the last two weeks here, but I did submit them to footytips.com.au. Not that they were really anything to write about… managing only two for Round 2 and a dismal one for Round 3. So, considering I did a fair bit better on my AFL […]
