Shite Tips for Week 5!

Posted in Betting Tips with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 14, 2012 by Mallaz

Basically I’m having a total equipment failure so I won’t risk going into too much detail and my laptop dying before this blog’s posted or at least written and saved so I can get online elsewhere and finish the job. However, if you look over my recent posts in the Betting Tips section, you’ll see that this is week five and if you’d been following my weekly £10 tips then you would have rinsed £40 with no return over the season’s first four weeks.

Oh well, you gotta keep trying. This week I’m having the following;

This Week’s Tips

(£10 accumulator)

Chelsea to win at QPR (20/23)

Manchester City to win at Stoke (3/4)

Tranmere to beat Coventry (11/10)

Gillingham to beat Bristol Rovers (3/4)

Decimal odds of 12.03, with Bet Victor £10 pays £120.30.

Betting Tips Week 2

Posted in Betting Tips, Football with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 25, 2012 by Mallaz

Welcome back to my old blog. I’ll be using this for random wittering and to continue my usual useless weekly betting tips over the near future. This is due to mallaz.co.uk now being completely fucked and in a transitional period.

 

This is now my second week of football betting tips of the 2012-2013 season. Last week my ten pound four-fold tip Arsenal to beat Sunderland, Newcastle to beat Tottenham, Blackpool to win at Millwall and Sheffield United to beat Shewsbury. Other than Arsenal, who faild o get th better of Sunderland all of the games that I tipped were correct last weekend. Unfortuntely if one game is wrong you won’t get paid so after the first week of my shite betting tips this season you are already £10 out of pocket.

 

My £10 four-fold tip this weekend is as follows;

Manchester United to beat Fulham (3/10)

Tottenham to beat West Brom (4/7)

Leeds to win at Peterbrough (11/10)

Blackpool to beat Ipswich (13/10)

 

With Bet Victor a £10 four-fold pays £98.60 at decimal odds of 9.86.

These tips are late being published and if you followed last weeks then you will already be out of pocket. Good luck this week and hopefully mallaz.co.uk will be back up and running in the very near future. Thanks for your patience.

SCRAPPING WITH DOORMEN, MONDAYS ON THURSDAY + THE MENU FOR MAY (REVIEWS, RECOMMENDATIONS + GIG GUIDE)

A new week brings stories of the weekend and also the end of the month brings my usual guide to music events that you should be getting yourselves too.  So I’ll bash all that in together because not only did I have a pretty interesting weekend, there’s some pretty promising shit going on for me in May.

Saturday night I was at Dynamix Skate Park in Gateshead for SubLevel2 & Milk The Cow present: The Warehouse Party and an eventful evening it was.

On arrival I was greeted with the amusing sight of Baron Von Alias, MistaBreeze & Eliza Lawson all in matching onesies and on roller skates.  They performed to their usual high standard with their high-octane shenanigans.  Always a winner in my book, entertainment guaranteed.  That’s why I’ve got Baron Von Alias, MistaBreeze & Eliza Lawson headlining a gig at Newcastle’s Cluny 2 on Saturday 7th July, with support from Ginger Snap & The Style Pile plus others to be confirmed.  Further details of that will follow in the very near future so watch this space.

And speaking of space…

You might as well go over to http://baronvonalias.bandcamp.com/album/brace-for-the-impact-ep-2 and download their epic EP ‘Brace For The Impact’.  It’ll cost a mere £1.79, so is a proper bargain.  Check out the video for the track ‘Impact’ and marvel at the comic genius that is Baron Von Alias, MistaBreeze & Eliza Lawson!

Baron, Breeze & Eliza – Impact

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaWlTVhkniY

Impact was the track that stood out for me on Saturday as it’s becoming one of my favourites and is always performed in energetic fashion live.

Another of the local Hip Hop crowd who made an impression on Saturday was Rex Regis.  I’ve seen Rex perform once before at SubLevel2 but this time he seemed to have a lot more oomph about him.  More enthusiasm in his performance and I enjoyed his set.  Get on Rex Regis and check him out on these links;

http://www.reverbnation.com/rexregisuk

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Rex-Regis-ArtistDj/167602376627221

I was also impressed with the flair that SubLevel2 MC J-Man uses to work the crowd and build the hype.  I fukkin love that dude!  He’s apparently gonna be accompanying L87 during his DJ set at Order 66 at The Telegraph this Friday but I’ll come on to that in a bit.  L87 and Pegz were among the DJs playing at The Warehouse Party, although by the time they were playing I was absolutely twatted!

J-Man & Me

It was a quality night and the music wasn’t the only action for little old me, although I have absolutely no memory of the story to follow, from what I’m told I’m completely blameless in the situation…

The story as told to me goes something like this; Sam Warren aka L87 of SubLevel2 and one of the organisers of the event is a mate of mine and the intention was to head back to his.  Between Sam seeing me at the bar and calling me down to see him this muppet bouncer has intervened and accosted me for the old closing time eviction.

The ignorant prick wouldn’t listen to me when I explained that I was with Sam and he became a little bit hostile and proceeded to manhandle me.  As always, due to natural instincts I am unwilling to control, when some knob-ed puts his manky fukkin mitts on me in an aggressive fashion I smack the twat.

So I cracked the bouncer in the mouth apparently, but remember it was him who introduced the violence into the situation when he started being the hard-man and pushing me about.  Well him being a meat-heed bouncer and me being a skinny dick-head, he decked me and was supposedly rough-housing me while I was down until good old Rudas stepped in and persuaded the bell-end bouncer to allow him to escort me from said premises without the use of unwarranted aggression and a touch of the old violent.

At some point during the altercation with this cock-sucking, roid-fuelled meat-heed I lost my fukkin awesome green bucket hat!  What an absolute fukkin cunt!  That’s two awesome bucket hats I’ve lost this year already!  So anyone in the fashion industry, I’ll happily negotiate an endorsement deal for a box full of bucket hats.  I look fukkin awesome in a bucket hat; it’d be a wise investment.

Lost me fukkin hat!!!

I’m currently clinging to the slim possibility that my hat has been handed in at the skate park and that I will one day see its safe return.  Fuck the graze and bump on me heed and the little scratch on me knee, I never felt those happen.  I just want me fukkin hat back!  It’s my favourite hat!

Aside from said knob-ed bouncer though, it was a fukkin class night and if you missed it I’ve got no sympathy for you as you woefully weep like a bitch in your bedroom tugging away at your blistered penis.  Just saying…

http://sublevel2.pl/

Anyway I’m close to recovered from the weekend and looking forward to May kicking off.  I’ve got two events lined up in May with some very exciting artists that I’m really looking forward to seeing perform live for the first time.  Plus…

I’M GOING TO SEE THE FUKKIN HAPPY MONDAYS LIVE!!!

HAPPY MONDAYS + INSPIRAL CARPETS!!!

God made it easy on me…

Well my dad did when he bought me my ticket for Happy Mondays and Inspiral Carpets playing at Newcastle’s O2 Academy on Thursday 3rd May for my birthday.  It’s gonna be “double double good!”  I can’t fukkin wait!

I seen Shaun Ryder and his band perform live at The Riverside in Newcastle in May last year and it was one of the best nights of my life.  I never thought that I’d get to see the Mondays’ original line-up but it’s fukkin happening!  I got a ticket for The Stone Roses in Manchester in the summer too but than in no way shape or form can top the Happy Mondays!!!

I spoke to Rowetta on Twitter a few days ago (that proper made my day!).  Besides being an epic vocalist, she’s a lovely woman too.  She wasn’t giving a lot away though, but she did say, “There will be something from Yes Please but the set will be a surprise x” which is, according to Shaun Ryder’s autobiography ‘Twisting My Melon’ his least favourite of the Happy Mondays albums.  However, I quite like a few of the tracks on there.  I even wanted my old band to cover ‘Sunshine and Love’, but their negativity ruled out that possibility because we didn’t have keys.  Fuck them.

Here’s a video – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoP9QnRc89k

God made it easy on me...

However it was ‘Stinkin Thinkin’ or ‘Monkey in the Family’ that I asked Rowetta for.  Because I’m a greedy bastard, I also asked if ‘God’s Cop’, ‘Loose Fit’ and ‘Wrote For Luck’ and Rowetta told me that I won’t be disappointed.  Stating the obvious there I think, Happy Mondays are my favourite band of all time!

Here’s a couple more videos of the Happy Mondays just because I’m proper buzzing that I’ll be seeing them live in a matter of days!

ORDER 66

The first of my two events during May is Order 66 at The Telegraph, behind Newcastle’s Central Station, and will be held this week on Friday 4th May.  Obviously I like all of the music that’ll be getting played but there’s two that have seemingly generated some interest from people I’ve spoken to.  Peculiar Disco Moves and Cerebral Scars have attracted some very promising feedback.  Here’s a couple of videos from these two acts two wet your whistle.

Right, well I was gonna go and prattle on about what certain artists are up to this month but then I thought, “Fuck it, I’m not getting paid shit for this!

So instead I’m gonna briefly mention some shit and move on to the May gig guide after naming my Song of the Week.

Honey Chrome

I’m currently helping Honey Chrome with promotion as I believe their Mind-Fuck Music for the Criminally Insane is quite frankly nothing short of genius.  Here’s a track to get you going before I give you a quick briefing of what they’re up to in May.

Honey Chrome – I Think I Luv U (live)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kR-2nIcDcU0

Now that you’ve had your introduction to their madness I’ll tell you what they’re doing.  They’re playing both Order 66 on 4th May and The Troll at The Bridge on 19th.  They’ll also be playing at The Blyth and Tyne Battle of the Bands on 31st, but I don’t know much about that.

They’ve also been doing some of that recording malarkey so expect some epic releases to follow.  Keep up to date with Honey Chrome on their website or Facebook page.

One of my previous musical recommendations, Emergency Door Release, continue their rise in the North East music scene with a bank holiday weekend bonanza that includes three live performances and some brand spanking new tracks.  They’re gigging first at The Troll at The Bridge on the 4th and then also have gigs the following two days.  Check out this link for details of Emergency Door Releases live schedule and to hear their music.

Head Of Light Entertainment

SONG OF THE WEEK

I may as well fuse my Song of the Week with a musical recommendation because this next act was recently brought to my attention and I love them!

Head Of Light Entertainment are an excellent three-piece acoustic act from Teesside.  Their sound is a brilliantly off-beat, quirky and downright strange stroke of genius.  The lyrical content is intelligent, witty and delivered in spectacular fashion.

My Song of the Week is;

Head Of Light Entertainment – What Must You Think Of Me?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RN1wket-QDA

Head Of Light Entertainment are; Carl Green on vocals and guitar, Simone Silivistris on vocals and keyboard and bass and percussion man, John Taylor.  They are also about to release their second album ‘The English Don’t Care’ due out on Monday 7th May.

FIVE GAMES YOU WANNA SWERVE AT THE BOOKIES THIS WEEKEND

Posted in Betting Tips, Football with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 23, 2012 by Mallaz

I actually tipped a winning bet last week.  The Tottenham versus Bolton game was abandoned during the first half after the horrifying events at White Hart Lane when Fabrice Muamba suffered a heart failure.  Thankfully he has since made progress on the road to recovery.  However, the cancellation of that game meant that is was voided, making my treble a double on Manchester United and Newcastle, who both won their respective games against Wolves and Norwich.  The tenner staked would have returned £25.23.

https://mallazmalcolmwhite.wordpress.com/2012/03/16/i-never-win-fuck-all/

So over six weeks, tenner a week, that’s £60 staked for a return of £25.23.

That’s a loss of £34.77.

Newcastle United 1-0 Norwich City

This week I’m going for a five game accumulator.

Middlesbrough to beat Bristol City (4/6)

Southampton to beat Doncaster (1/3)

Torquay to beat Port Vale (EVS)

Dundee to beat Raith (4/6)

Stranraer to beat East Stirling (2/5)

On the off chance that I can follow last week’s small win with a win this week…

£10 with William Hill pays £103.70.

I’ve probably expended my luck with last week’s winning tip, so you probably want to swerve my tips this week.

Torquay United to beat Port Vale, EVS with William Hill.

I NEVER WIN FUCK ALL…

Posted in Betting Tips, Football with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 16, 2012 by Mallaz

Obviously if you followed my tips last week then you’d have lost your tenner, as usual.

https://mallazmalcolmwhite.wordpress.com/2012/03/09/another-tenner-doon-the-pan/

West Ham drew with Doncaster and Huddersfield drew with Rochdale, which meant that my four-fold was useless.

James Coppinger levels for Doncaster at West Ham

If you’ve followed these tips, that’s a tenner tip each week for five weeks, with absolutely nothing at all in return.

Fifty snots doon the pan!

Newcastle to beat Norwich. 17/20 with William Hill.

I’m gonna go for a treble with this week’s tip, so here’s three selections you probably want to swerve…

Tottenham to beat Bolton (1/3)

Manchester United to win at Wolves (4/11)

Newcastle to beat Norwich (17/20)

In the unfathomable event that this treble did come in…

£10 with William Hill pays £33.63.

You’d still be down following my tips over six weeks too.  Think about it…

GOD MADE IT EASY ON ME…

Happy Mondays

“I like that… Turn it up!!!”

My old fella woke me up with a phone call early this afternoon.  Usually, I’m not a fan of being woken up with phone calls but I can make an exception this time.  He’s bought me a ticket for Happy Mondays and Inspiral Carpets at the O2 Academy on 3rd May.  BOOM!

http://www.o2academynewcastle.co.uk/event/37894/happy-mondays-tickets

“One day he was admiring his reflection in his favourite mirror…”

I’m getting the ticket for my birthday in April and I can’t fukkin wait!  In May last year I went to see Shaun Ryder and his band playing at The Riverside, as well as Nobby Solano on his trumpet with the Geordie Latinos.  That was one of the best nights of my life… so far!  It also made performing at The Riverside with my old band a life-long dream come true.  By life-long, I mean since May last year.  I played on the same stage as Shaun Ryder once did, class!  See the video of that gig on the link below.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcoPU2cW5wc

“I can virtually do anything I read…”

Shaun Ryder and Bez are my fukkin idols and the Happy Mondays are by far my favourite band of all time so to get the chance to see the original line-up back together after nineteen years.  I was gutted when the Shaun Ryder 2012 Tour was cancelled but for the Happy Mondays to reform totally makes up for that!

HAPPY MONDAYS – KINKY AFRO

“Smiling like a cat when his milk came through…”

If you haven’t read Shaun Ryder’s autobiography ‘Twisting My Melon’ I suggest you do.  It’s not the best written book in the world but the content, his story, is the most inspiring thing I have ever read!  Clair got me his book for Christmas and I read it over the course of a day.  Never in my life have I read a book that quickly, it usually takes me longer than that to read a newspaper, but this was a captivating read and as I stated earlier, the most inspiring work I’ve ever laid eyes on.  Shaun Ryder is a fukkin genius!  I also got Bez’ book ‘Freaky Dancin’ – Me and The Mondays’ for Christmas and have just started reading that.  Bez isn’t as daft as he appears either.

HAPPY MONDAYS – FREAKY DANCIN’

“You know you talk so hip man, you’re twisting my melon man!”

I’ve also got a ticket for The Stone Roses at Heaton Park in Manchester on 1st July, but Happy Mondays tops that by far!  But that does mean that 2012 is a truly epic year on the gig front.  Now all I need is tickets to see The Farm.

Drop Acid, Not Bombs

HAPPY MONDAYS – ‘ENERY

A BIT OF A SQUEAKY BUM MOMENT LAST WEEKEND…

Posted in Betting Tips, Football with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 2, 2012 by Mallaz

I had a bit of a scare on the betting tips challenge with Wor Shitus last weekend.

https://mallazmalcolmwhite.wordpress.com/2012/01/27/betting-tips-2/

On the Sunday he was waiting on Sunderland to beat Middlesbrough for his tip to come in.  My tips had already gone tits up, naturally, and he looked set to take the lead.  Thankfully, that ended a draw so his tips went down the pan and I retain my lead of £64.10 going into this weekend’s fixtures.

The current scores are;

Me -£512.46 v -£576.56 Wor Shitus

West Ham (4/7) to beat Millwall

This week I’m going for a £50 accumulator; Arsenal to beat Blackburn (2/7), Manchester City to beat Fulham (3/10), West Ham to beat Millwall (4/7), Charlton to beat Rochdale (4/9) and Sheffield Wednesday to beat Yeovil (1/2).  With Paddy Power, £50 returns £284.54.

If you don’t know what this betting tips challenge is all about, then click the link below to find out.
