And offering E/W for final two places at 1/3 odds. Effectively - 5/1 to win our semi - too good to miss.


2.83 to win the semi.

It might have been more appropriate to engage in the content of the article rather than trying to prove how clever and superior you are.


I did discuss the article in my original post before pointing out the mistake in Danny’s surname. It is nothing to do with being clever or superior; it’s just asking for the courtesy of spelling names correctly.
Time you enjoy wasting is never wasted.

The mis-spelling of names is the least important grammatical error, particularly when the context of the text gives you a big clue to whom you are referring. More important, to my mind, is the correct application of punctuation as the incorrect use of commas and apostrophes, for example, can lead to confusion and mis-understanding. The mis-spelling of Cipriani is unlikely to.

Fair credit to porky, I've never met a person who's never made a spelling mistake until now. A rare beast indeed.

Edit: Checked spelling.

Always annoys me when pedants attack the grammar and spelling in a post, instead of the argument. As some have said, auto spelling and website checkers can have an effect, affect? Who cares. They can take there shizzle elsewhere.
