Football Pools, What is going on.

What is the problem with the UK football pools coupons these days.

Do we not have enough teams playing football on Saturday any more?

I like to have a little dabble on Vernons Pools (any 8 from 11 = 165 lines, cost 75p) Tomorrow, hardly any UK football teams playing.

It's an international weekend. No premier or Championship games.

Follow football then ;o)

The trouble is International games and European competitions. Internationals used to be on a Wednesday evening meaning the league program was unaffected. Now they are played in pairs, Sautuday and the following Wednesday meaning league games are cancelled for the Premiership and Championship on the Saturday.

With the UEFA club games being played on Thursdays the teams involved have to play on the following Sunday (not Saturday) add that together with the two SKY games on a Sunday and as many as six games could be on a Sunday.

Thanks, Guys. I know absolutely nothing about football. All I do is pick 11 numbers off the coupon and hope for the best. I would just like it to be all UK football teams.

They say that the Lottery has hit the football pools very badly.
At least with the pools there is an element of skill in it.
