That seems like a really stupid bet to make but also an unlikely one if you’re actually running a serious gambling scheme. Why would you wait until there were 10 minutes to go to make that bet at worse odds? Why wouldn’t you just bet the better odds at the beginning of the match?
Xhaka getting a yellow card, how is that suspicious, he gets yellow or red almost every appearance
Timeline is a bit weird as I’ve now moved some posts from the Arteta thread, as it didn’t make sense to have it there.
The thing is, Xhaka should have been booked when he took out Raphinha’s ankle and that happened just after half-time. His next foul was always likely to be booking.
However, having seen the clip of him time wasting, it does look like a nonsensical booking given the game state. ffs Granit…what have you done
Next time please move them individually by time posted. Thank you.
Can’t get the staff these days
I don’t even get the bet. How did they know he wouldn’t be subbed? Did he ask Mikel then do the secret wink at his mate in the crowd? It all seems way too risky for me and nowhere near a sure thing.
The only plausible thing would him doing it only at that point because he knew it wouldn’t cost the team because the game was done, but even then how do you guarantee you’ll get yourself into a card worthy and innocent looking scenario?
This is Granit Xhaka we’re talking about
The only bet that would be suspicious is if someone put money on Xhaka not getting a card.
If this all ends with Xhaka getting a ban and us never having to hear about what a model professional he is ever again, I may spontaneously combust from the happiness.
At this stage it feels like it’d take something like this to get him out the fucking door, so here’s hoping eh.
No, that was Les Ferdinand
Thought it was that Scottish band.
Did I proclaim incorrectly?
These laboured jokes make me want to release a primal scream.
Surprised neither of you tagged @Marty Pellow
Best not to disturb him.
He’s just flown back in from Texas
Yes, we made it to League Cup final. Do you fancy our odds against Chelsea?
Really?! That’s nuts. Well done Xhaka for unintentionally helping us gamblers
