Bookies Invent New Bet For Southampton FC
Friday, 12th Mar 2021 09:57
It was no surprise when Moussa Djenepo limped out of Saints game at Sheffield United injured, this is now an established custom in any Southampton fixture, someone has to go off injured, but it is no laughing matter as Ralph Hasenhuttl's injured list goes back up to six, but there is money to be made.
Those who like a bet on football games often put a few quid on the first Saints goal scorer, but a new bet has emerged, "The First To Go Off Injured"
This is now being offered by several on line betting companies exclusively for Southampton FC only.
Odds can now be found on every Saints squad member to be the first off injured for the game against Brighton and there are also other combinations that can be used.
You can combine first goal scorer with first off injured, as well as half time/full time injury scores, ie no one off by half time and one injury in the second half etc.
There is also what is being referred to as the Cluedo bet, this is where you state the first off the pitch injured along with the injury and the place sustained. Takumi Minamino with a hamstring in the penalty area is currently being offered at a very attractive 10/1.
As a service to our readers we publish what we consider the best odds for this weekend's game against Brighton.
First injured - Kyle Walker Peters 10/1
Combi Bet - Injury first half, no injuries second 7/1
Cluedo Bet - Although we have mentioned Takumi Minamino, he perhaps doesn't offer value as we say in the Turf Accountant industry, however Stuart Armstrong does for a hamstring injury in the centre circle. 75/1
First Goalscorer & First off injured - Takumi Minamino 25/1
Double - Che Adams to get first goal & Nathan Tella off injured at any point 50/1
Treble - Che Adams to score first goal, Nathan Tella to go off injured at any point and Pompey fans to claim there were 60,000 of them at Wembley on Saturday for their game against Salford City. 1/50 on. Very low odds there is no way that Pompey fans will not be able to mention how great their support was at Wembley.
Accumulator - Che Adams to score first goal, Nathan Tella to go off injured at any point and Pompey fans to claim there were 60,000 of them at Wembley on Saturday for their game against Salford City and John Petersfield Born & Bred Westwood to fall off the top of a World record breaking 350 wooden pallets on the back of a flat bed truck in the Wembley car park. Evens.
There are a lot of good odds available at all good online bookmakers.

Tonight, Colchester United face Southend United in what may not necessarily be the most important game of our respective histories (though it’s certainly very close), but is almost certainly the most important Essex derby ever. However this season pans out, by the end of it there’ll either be only one team in Essex, or worst case scenario, none at all. If the U’s win, then Southend will be 9pts behind with just three games to go, and a minimum of a -12 goal difference to overturn if they want to overtake us. Certainly mathematically possible, but that would rely on a remarkable turnaround in their form, form that they’ve shown precious little sign of achieving so far this season. The stalking horse is Grimsby, with their game in hand, who have rather belatedly shown an improvement in form, so their match against automatic promotion chasing Morecambe tonight is equally important, particularly if we want to avoid the unthinkable, with both Essex clubs dropping out of the league.

So here we are, as the nation mourns the passing of His Royal Highness, Duke of Edinburgh, the U’s face the first of two season-defining moments, with our late kick-off match at home to Walsall. Before then, no doubt many will have been focused on events elsewhere, not least the early kick-offs for Grimsby (at home to promotion-chasing Bolton Wanderers), and particularly Essex rivals Southend United, who faced a tricky visit to Exeter City – still very much in the hunt for at least a play-off spot. As I finalise this blog, I know that Grimsby have beaten Bolton 2-1, and Southend earned a credible 0-0 draw in the West Country. More to the point, the U’s will know this too. Whilst I can’t help but feel that will ought to be to our advantage, it surely must also put additional pressure on a squad whose confidence is paper-thin. We must hope that Hayden Mullins, assisted by Paul Tisdale, get their heads right, and send the lads out this evening fired up with self-belief.

Well, that has been a lively week for Colchester United in the press, and not least for Robbie Cowling, with not one, or two, but kind of three club announcements in rapid succession to try and put the record straight. First, we had Tribunalgate, which certainly looked very poor according to the initial press reports, but which on closer inspection when some of the ‘fact gaps’ were filled in wasn’t anywhere near the story that some would have us believe. Then of course we had the ‘leak’ that the U’s were about to go into administration, despite all the reassurances we’d been given in previous statements from Robbie. Not so said Robbie again, and particularly angry at what he believed to be the source of the story. Hence statement #3, repeating his assurances, but this time after passing through the lawyer filter to remove his thoughts on the source. To paraphrase Robbie’s conclusion to that statement, let’s hope we can all have a day off from this sort of media shenanigans and enjoy our game at Oldham tonight!

Well, these sure are strange times at Colchester United, particularly for a club (nor a Chairman) not usually associated with the ‘managerial revolving door’ approach. With results not matching expectations or even minimum requirements, and a brief spell after being appointed Interim Head Coach, Wayne Brown has been released to return to the Jammers, for whenever their pandemic-interrupted football restarts. In comes not one, or two, but three new ‘appointments’. Hayden Mullins steps up as Head Coach to the end of the season, Joe Dunne apparently comes back to the U’s in a sort of unofficial coaching/ team-spirit sort of role, and exceptionally experienced lower-league former Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale arrives to provide Hayden with advice and support – crikey!

This afternoon the U’s take on Bradford City in a bid to gather sufficient points to stay clear of the bottom two. It’ll be a tough gig though, even if (as I suspect) Bradford City have left it a bit too late to challenge the play-off spots. They were on a decent run of form, that is until defeats at Newport, Carlisle, Scunthorpe and a goalless draw at home to Oldham put paid to any lingering promotion hopes. For us, it’s simple, to stay out of the bottom two, for all intents and purposes we only need to gain half (or more) of the points that Grimsby or Southend do. Sounds easy, just wish I felt more confident we will…
