Some amazing numbers coming out of Tottenham this week. They celebrated moving into their new home by posting a world record £113m post-tax profit last season. 

Their annual income climbed from £310m to £380m and match-day income doubled from £19m to over £42m thanks mainly to their Wembley crowds. And they managed to do it all while keeping their wage bill roughly half that of Top Four rivals Man United!

An admirably and truly astonishing achievement.

That’s if Kane, Alli, Erickson, Alderweireld, Tripper and Son don’t all leave in the summer for bigger contracts.

Eyes down…

Entering the final furlong of the season on Grand National day, it is fair to say that the final places are all but decided. And there’ll be no Devon Loch here (look it up, Millennials. Eyes roll). 

We have had a change though…

He came, he scored, he conquered…

Cesar Azpilicueta’s goal-scoring exploits at Cardiff and a clean sheet at home to Brighton means he elbows his Chelsea team-mate David Luis out of the back four. 

But otherwise it’s as you were. Although we should tip our hats (that means fist-pump, Millennials. Eyes roll) to Palace’s Patrick van Aanholt for clambering up to 8th place in the FPL defensive rankings. The only one of the eight not representing Liverpool, Man City or Chelsea player. A good effort.

Cool Raul steps up…

Likewise, Wolves’ Raul Jimenez has grown in swagger all season. And is only 3pts behind the A-class AA strike force of Aguero and Aubameyang. A+ that man (that’s a very good mark at school, Millenials. Eyes roll). 

Scuttling back into midfield for a second, all matters are settled - with a massive 33pts between the Fab Four* and the rest. Paul Pogba taking the role of Pete Best**.

Notes for Millennials:

*This is a reference to the Beatles***

** Pete Best was the drummer that got replaced by Ringo Starr**** so didn’t make the final line-up.

*** The Beatles were a popular four-piece pop group in the 1960s.

**** Ringo Starr was the drummer. Who went on to achieve worldwide critical acclaim for his portrayal of a fictional steam locomotive.

Yeah yeah yeah,

The planned football career that would allow Matt to spend every afternoon in the bookies was cut mercifully short. So he was able to spend his mornings there too.

But rather than spunk his (sweet) FA pension on a day-tripper to Palookaville, Matt played smart. He watched, he listened. Learned his trade and earned a reputation.

But the bookies don’t like a winner...

First they closed his accounts. Then they tried legal action to shut down his tipping services. Now they employ him.

Matt has been providing winning football advice since 1998. And whether it has been via post, premium rate phone line, email, TV or Twitter – he has always made punters money.
