Call For Mauricio!
Maintenance staff at Wembley have been working overnight to transform the stadium from being prepared to host the FA Cup Final to stage non-league’s two big finals. The FA Trophy and FA Vase are as important to players at those levels to the FA Cup. Chelsea won the trophy yesterday and Jose Mourinho is deluded if the thinks Manchester United played well. The team have been hopeless in the two biggest matches of the season, against Sevilla in the Champions League and yesterday. Its not so much that these matches were lost but the manner of the defeats and Mourinho doesn’t get that. MAURICIO POCEHTTINO has been backed to be the next United manager.
With no major football fixtures other than the Wembley deciders in the UK today the main betting options are related to some of the other minor betting sports. Once the Champions League has been played next Saturday attention will be turned to the World Cup. The six players at the head of the betting for the FIFA Ballon d’Or of 2018 are playing in the tournament. If Egypt do well MOHAMED SALAH will contribute and he is 2/1 with Paddy Power to be voted the world’s best player.
There is a lucrative Flat meeting at Naas in Ireland with £262,000 up for grabs. The three meetings in the UK are worth less than that in total and Limerick also offers more money than each of those fixtures. Sunday racing in Ireland serves the purpose of providing top class action on the second leisure day of the weekend while it is generally moderate fare in Britain. At Naas SIOUX NATION has the form to win the Group 3 contest (4.15) and can be backed at 13/8 with Betfair.
