Mad Predictions That Came True

** NOT RELATED TO THIS SEASON'S TITLE RACE **

I bought that book by Carragher, The Greatest Games recently and am about halfway through. Really good insightful book too I will post a review soon, I love my footie books me!!

Anyway the next game is Germany 1 England 5 and it got me thinking to a mad, mad prediction someone made to me on the day of that game.Over the summer of 2001, i'd been living in Spain and on 1st September I was flying home from Malaga back to Manchester.

My Dad's mate who i'd know for years and years was giving me a lift to the airport, big Liverpool fan bless him, and we were talking about that night's game. Could England really beat Germany on their patch? Surely not???? So as we pull into the terminal and I get out of the car with my luggage he mentioned it again and said 'Are you watching it tonight then back home, yeah?? We're gonna score five just you watch' before I said goodbye and left.

Flew home, match started, match ended and we scored 5! What a prediction!!

Anyone else got any mad footie prediction stories that came true? No doubt someone will say an old man who reminded them of Gandalf predicted in a pub in Benidorm that Leicester would win the league in June 2015

Admin pls multi board

I was in the pub when Stan Collymore made his debut for Bradford against Leeds. Everyone I was with were Leeds fans and I said to them that Collymore will definitely score (he had a history scoring on his debuts).

One of the lads said there was no chance and so we had a £20 bet on it.

After we had shook on it I said to him, I bet he scores an overhead kick. 20 minutes later Collymore scored a fine overhead kick.

Then we went double our quits on the £20 over a game of pool and I won that too.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
Haha that's a class story. Collymore had a lot of potential but he just wasn't mentally ready to get to the top. He had a mad year at Liverpool I think in the mid 90's but apparently he was nutter.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes he had a lot of natural ability. Could hit them with either feet. But he really only had 3 good seasons out of his career. I believe he has always suffered with his mental health.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Oh I didn't mean he was not mentally strong enough due to his issues with mental health, i've heard that he was a bit of a big time charlie and thought he was the bees knees etc. That's why I said he didn't make it to the top. Apparently when he was at Liverpool he thought he was above all of their staff members who were legends like that Ronnie Moran.

Ah right. Never going to end well at a club like Liverpool then.

I think that was part of his mental health issues though to be honest.

He's always struck me as being insecure. Which is probably why he gave it he big time Charlie - to compensate for his lack of confidence.

I watched the 2014 FA Cup final in the pub with my dad and two uncles. One uncle said that he had a dream that Arsenal had come from behind and Aaron Ramsey scored the winner.

When they were 2 - 1 down at half time my other uncle ran over to the bookies and put a bet on Arsenal winning 3 - 2 with Ramsey scoring the winner.

Safe to say he paid for drinks for the rest of the evening.

He has massive issues with depression and mood swings on a daily basis. At times he would be "one of the boys" and the next day literally ignore everyone, not say a word. I think that he got a reputation from that as some kind of arrogance when it wasn't. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure he was a bit of a diiiiick, lots of players were at that time when the money really rolled in but like I said, I think if he'd been playing now he would have been viewed completely differently.

Not exactly a mad prediction but a nice bet that came up. A few years ago united were 2-0 away to West Ham. Seen United were a good price at HT so stuck 20 quid on it. Came back to win 3-2 with a Rooney hattrick. It was the one where he was suspended for cursing into the camera. Got a few hundred quid off it

I had a bet in late 2008 that Spurs would become a big successful club after beating us in the League cup

Sadly I lost the slip, & have never collected

I said that once Tottenham scored once against Ajax in the CL SF a couple of seasons ago that they'd go on and score 3 and win the game. On this site funnily enough.

Mu dad used to watch the racing Saturday afternoon and have the odd bet. He was looking through a card when my younger sister, who would have been about ten said I like Loppylugs, she just liked the name.
Dad but a bit on and it won.
The next Saturday he asked again, of course, and she looked at the card and said another, blow me that won to.
Dad got quite excited, asked her every week for a while before it died out, but she did have more winners.
Ithink it was that she wasn't really interested at all, she had just seen the name loppylugs, liked it, but didn't want to do it everyweek.
