Weblog: The football punter

Crafty acca should help make my Sunday super

IT'S one of the greatest days in the history of televised football.

Everton v Liverpool, Ajax v PSV, Arsenal v Manchester United, Bayern Munich v Borussia Dortmund, Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid, Milan v Napoli, PSG v Marseille and Dallas v Houston (yeeeehaw!).

But I won't be around to see this Super Sunday. Mrs Bunter has talked me into a day trip to an arts and crafts fair.

I can't backtrack on it, because I've already said an enthusiastic yes - she said "October festival" to me a few months back and all I heard was Oktoberfest.

But that won't stop me watching the games on my phone in between visits to the artisan confetti stall and the matchstick art gallery.

I'm going to plump for an ambitious acca which will either leave me crying into my ethically produced floral handkerchief or buying Mrs Bunter a ring which has been delicately hand-hammered by 1,000 mice.

So in time order, here goes: Everton-Liverpool draw, Ajax, Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Napoli and, for a final flourish, Marseille.

I'm leaving the Dallas v Houston game alone.

It's not that I'm hopeless at punting on MLS - I just don't want to get greedy.

Anyway, by then I suppose I'll be safely back in bed, enjoying my new hand-sheared alpaca wool blanket.

Aldershot v Forest Green

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Forest Green have not kept a clean sheet in their last eight matches
Expert verdict
Forest Green’s blistering early-season form has deserted them with no win in five for a side who won their opening nine matches in the National League. Rovers are scoring plenty of goals - only Gateshead have nullified them this term - but defensively there are issues which could be exposed by Aldershot.
