Season's Conclusions

It was tight enough (according to the scoreline), but Barcelona managed to win their home match with Levante swelling the Paddy Power fund even further.

I'm in a position whereby it may be necessary to draw this season to a conclusion. I'm not touching any further Champions League matches (too close to call) and I'm avoiding domestic cup competitions (for the same reason).

The European leagues have gone weird:
  • Poor teams are scrapping for survival and punching above their weight
  • Good teams are resting their stars in favour of playing them in the cup competitions
  • Really good teams are getting the jitters as the home in on the league title
  • Fabulous teams aren't bothering to raise their game at all because they've already won the league
So where does that leave me?

Well, the £40 pot at the start of the season has quadrupled in value which ranks quite well with other "investment schemes":
  • £40 - £150: The Bookiebeater
  • £40 - £70: Property (in Northern Ireland)
  • £40 - £45: FT100 Tracker Fund (Stocks & Shares)
  • £40 - £42 : Bank or Building Society Savings Account
And I'm looking forward to next season! (Of course, if I will continue to look for value and if I find any worthwhile bets, I'll continue my investment scheme.)
