That would do for me mate. I bet small for the occasional win but have been pssing against the wind since the season began. My weakness is that I am beguiled by the bookies' footy betting slips....a myriad of possibilities promising daft returns. Might be better off doing the dags, tbh.

Wolves to beat Swindon at home - 19/20
Forest to beat Barnsley at home - 3/5
Fulham v West Brom - draw - 12/5
Tottenham to beat Norwich with -1.0 handicap - 6/4
Leyton Orient to beat Port Vale - 4/5
Atletico Madrid to beat Almeria - 1/4
I don't follow the tips blindly so I can't tell you how often they hit or miss but this one had a ring of truth about it. It was done as a Heinz bet (covering all '57 varieties' of possible, multiple, outcomes) - I staked £0.15 per bet (times 57 bets = £8.55) and as it happens all six came in so happy days. Did one a couple of weeks ago and only three of the six came in and it barely made the stake back.
