Here are some sickeners we saw in this week's compeitition…
One goal let me down in both a 1302/1 and 668/1 pic.twitter.com/AGwfhMxOH7— andrew todos (@AndrewTodos) November 6, 2017
@AndrewTodos was left cursing his luck not once, but twice. Northampton, Peterborough and Tranmere all conspired to leave him agonisingly short of nearly £1000 off of two 50p bets! The Cobblers failing to beat Scunthorpe and Peterborough v Tranmere only having two goals and not three means he was left empty handed. Wounded!
#MondayMoan Watford falling apart from 2 up then missing a 101st minute penalty to level up and bring it home pic.twitter.com/AQEyVOKxsY— Mike Yardley (@MikeHull84) November 6, 2017
It might not have been a huge sum but it takes a special kind of bad luck to lose this treble, when you consider that Watford were 2-0 up at half-time. However they shipped three in the second half and topped that off by missing an injury-time penalty that would have salvaged the bet for @MikeHull84.
what were Wolfsburg doing? Disallowed goals, missed penalties, surrendering lead twice #moanmonday pic.twitter.com/TpD6dCeYM4— Lewis Byrne (@Lewb1988) November 6, 2017
Wolfsburg definately do not have a fan in @Lewb1988. They had the league twice against Hertha Berlin, but were pegged back each time and conceded a late equaliser which meant that £602.79 went up in smoke.
How about cashing out for £50 with 2 mins to go and bournemouth scoring in the 90+2 could of won £780 #MondayMoan pic.twitter.com/GMi8WU1YRI— Danny King. (@_dk10) November 6, 2017
However this week's winner is @_DK10, who must be cursing the invention of Cash Out right now. Banking £50 off a fiver seemed a good idea at the time with Bournemouth failing to get past a stubborn Newcastle defence. But a last-minute header from Steve Cook won the game for Eddie Howe's side and meant that our man missed out on an extra £780. Gutting!
