Results: Basically Jimma is devastated, with only the All Blacks letting him down, to winning one & a half grand, as New Zealand beat Tonga by 31 points....the rest all came in! The only saving grace was that it was the opening game, so at least he knew he was fucked before it really got started!
25th August 2011:

Perkis: New Zealand at 1.57/1 & Ireland at 1.4/1
Results: Australia put on an inspirational display in Brisbane to beat New Zealand 25-20 and secure their first Tri-Nations title since 2001 and only third ever.
England gave themselves a confidence boost a fortnight before the World Cup as they condemned Ireland to a fourth straight warm-up defeat, beating them 20-9. An early Manu Tuilagi try and two Jonny Wilkinson penalties saw England lead 13-9 at half-time, Ronan O'Gara landing three kicks in reply. With Chris Ashton in the sin-bin, England stretched their lead with a Delon Armitage try. That proved the final score as heavy rain made conditions tricky.

Sturm won a split decision after a superb fight with two judges favouring Sturm by 116-112 and the other seeing it 115-113 for Macklin. Sturm's sharper work in the second half of the contest swung the fight his way. Macklin made a blazing start which gave him genuine hope of an upset before fading late on.

20th January 2011
Jimma is having a nap on the 12.50pm at Gosford in Queensland, Australia; £5 on 'Pompey' each-way at 16/1.

....and £3 on Ian Bell top scoring for England in their first innings, in the 5th Ashes Test against Australia at the SCG.
Results: Chelsea and Villa drew 3-3 at Stamford Bridge and Rangers lost 2-0 at home to Old Firm enemies Celtic, so that put pay to the accumulator, while Ian Bell just missed out in being England's top scorer in the 5th Test at the SCG with Alastair Cook outdoing him and Matt Prior in the ton stakes.
15th December 2010
Razor is having a £20 nap on this 23/1 Europa League accumlator:
club bruges v VILLARREAL
LIVERPOOL v fc utrecht
JUVENTUS v manchester city
FC PORTO v cska sofia
bayer leverkusen v ATLETICO MADRID
He's also having some serious money on Wednesday night's boxing at Belfast's King's Hall, on the British Featherweight Title fight between Martin Lindsay & John Simpson and the British Flyweight Title fight between Shinny Bayaar & Paul Edwards; £100 on Lindsay and £100 on Bayaar.
Jimma is having £50 on the Paul Malignaggi v Michael Lozada going the distance and 1.6/1
Results: Razor fell short in his Europa League accumulator, only getting the wins for Villarreal and FC Porto right.
John Simpson produced the performance of his life to rip the British featherweight title from Martin Lindsay on the Ulsterman's home turf. Lindsaycame into the second defence of his British title as a hot favourite against the Scotsman, who had lost seven of his 28 contests coming into the fight. Lindsay was 17-0 but he came out second best in a gruelling war against the challenger, losing 116-113 on all three judges' scorecards. Even a fiercely partisan Belfast crowd could not argue with that verdict.
On the undercard in Belfast, Paul Edwards won the British flyweight title from holder Shinny Bayaar after an accidental clash of heads in the first round. That resulted in a nasty cut to defending champion Bayaar and it was no surprise to see the fight halted on doctor's advice soon afterwards. Under current British Boxing Board of Control rules, the stoppage sees the belt change hands with Edwards handed the win. However, had the fight taken place just three weeks later - a BBBC rule change comes into force on January 1 - the bout would have been scored a no-contest.
Paulie Malignaggi scored a 6th Round Stoppage over Michael Lozada on the Jean Pascal v Bernard Hopkins undercard in Quebec.
Overall Profit: Razor £280
Overall Profit: Jimma £7
10th December 2010

£100 on MATTHEW MACKLIN to beat Ruben Varon by a ko/tko or disqualification at 1.25/1
£100 on TONY BELLEW to beat Ovill McKenzie at 1.22/1
Result: The 28-year-old Birmingham fighter Matthew Macklin, was matched from the first bell and never looked comfortable against his opponent from Madrid. Macklin ended the fight with blood gushing from both eyes with Varon also ending the stronger. But despite this, Macklin took a unanimous decision with the judges scoring the fight 116-111, 116-113 and 117-111.
And the last fight of the night saw Commonwealth light-heavyweight champion Tony Bellew twice climb off the canvas to stop Ovill McKenzie in the eighth round.
Overall Profit: Razor £500

ASTON VILLA 2-3 MANCHESTER UTD @ 26/1

5th November 2010
Razor and Jimma are having another flutter on the rugby league Four Nations Down Under:
Razor: Australia to beat New Zealand - £50 at 1.76/1 & England to beat Papa New Guinea - £100 at 1.05/1
Jimma: England to beat Papa New Guinea by 1-12 points - £50 at 4/1 & Australia to beat New Zealand - £60 at 1.76/1
Results: Tony Clubb's first-half hat-trick spared England's blushes as they laboured to a 36-10 win over Papua New Guinea in their final Four Nations game.

Jimma is having a nap on the Melbourne Cup:
£30 on Shocker to win at 8/1
£5 on Manighar to win at 14/1
£20 on Shootout each-way at 25/1
Result: Shocker by name and Shocker by nature. Last year's winner was nowhere to be seen as the French-trained Americain won the 150th running of the Melbourne Cup as favourite So You Think finished third. Gerald Mosse guided the five-year-old, trained by Alain de Royer-Dupre, to France's first victory in the famous Australian race 'which stops a nation'. Maluckyday was second while So You Think ran creditably but failed to justify being the hottest favourite for 39 years in the two-mile contest. A crowd of 100,000 packed into Flemington racecourse for the big race.

So Razor won on the Aussies, while Jimma missed out by one point in Australia's defeat of England, and missed out by 4 points in New Zealand's thrashing of Papa New Guinea.
And in the football, Jimma just got the 2nd City Derby right in his treble.

Jimma is putting a hopeful tenner on Pompey finishing in the Top Six in the Championship come the end of the season at 10/1......"Just you wait and see!!??!!"........well let's hope they're still trading by then !!!!????!!!!
Results: Colin Ingram made the second best score in a one-day international debut to lead South Africa to a 64-run win in the first match against Zimbabwe, and winning Razor £114.
Meanwhile The Duke came close but not close enough in his eight-match acumulator, with the draws between Man Utd v West Brom and Villa v Chelsea, shafting him.
8th October 2010

17th September 2010
Razor is putting £50 on this boxing treble at 4.5/1:
ENZO MACARRANELLI to beat Alexander Frenkel
LUCAS KONECNY to beat Matt Hall
SHANE MOSELEY to beat sergio mora
and £10 on SHALVA JOMARDASVILLI to beat Matthew Macklin at 11/1
and Jimma is having £20 on the WESTERN BULLDOGS to beat St Kilda in the AFL Grand Semi-Final at 5/1 and £50 on the GEELONG CATS to beat the Collingwood Magpies at 2/1.
Result: Razor had a nightmare, getting all of his boxing bets wrong!
Enzo Maccarinelli lost his European cruiserweight title, knocked out in the seventh round by Alexander Frenkel.
Matthew Hall's fight with Lukas Konecny for the vacant European light-middleweight title was a brutal battle from the first bell.
His Czech Republic opponent shaded the first couple of close rounds, with a fierce right in the second rocking the Mancunian.
Both fighters continued to trade a barrage of clubbing punches to body and head with Konecny's shots causing Hall all sorts of trouble.
But Konecny's defence proved the tighter of the two boxers as he started to show his experience and exert his control on the fight with Hall hurt by a fierce uppercut in the fifth.
Hall was again in trouble in the sixth and was eventually floored with a combination of punches to body and face knocking the will out of the Manchester fighter.
He received a standard eight count but still managed to land a huge left on Konecny, before the Czech fighter finished the job with a two-punch combination.
After losing for the third time in his 26-fight career, Hall announced his retirement.
American Shane Mosley could only manage a draw against a tentative Sergio Mora in their 12-round light-middleweight contest in Los Angeles.
The 39-year-old (46-6-1) was hoping to propel himself back into the world title picture after suffering a lopsided defeat to Floyd Mayweather in May.
But he was unable to outpoint compatriot Mora (22-1-2) in a defensive battle that saw both fighters booed by the crowd in the Staples Center.
Mosley did start the fight on the front foot as his opponent - a former WBC world title holder - focused on staying out of trouble and often used clinching tactics.
And then Matthew Macklin started at a fierce pace with his Georgian opponent Shalva Jomardashvili, feeling the full-force of the Birmingham fighter's vast array of punches.
But Jomardashvili showed he was a durable opponent and stood his ground and exchanged punches with Macklin in the third.
Slowly, Macklin started to pick apart his opponent but he himself was caught with a looping right in the fifth and that spurred the home fighter into action, with the Birmingham man hurting Jomardashvili with a barrage of body shots that left him clinging on for the bell.
It looked as if Jomardashvili had survived, but his corner decided enough was enough and they pulled their man out of the fight.
Jimma didn't fare any better in his AFL Grand Semi-Finals bets either, with Collingwood beating Geelong, and St Kilda beating the Bulldogs.
Overall Profit: Jimma £530
Overall Profit: Razor £135
1st September 2010
Razor is putting a tenner on Dennis Wise being installed as the new manager of Southampton FC at 25/1 (he was spotted in Winchester!)
Result: Well Dennis Wise must have been just shopping in Winchester, as they finally gave the job to Scunthorpe manager Nigel Adkins!
12th July 2010
Well the World Cup is over and by the time the Final had come round Jimma couldn't lose as he has Spain and Holland. So with Spain's win, Jimma trousered a ton.
Overall Profit: Jimma £600
Overall Profit: Razor £205

23rd June 2010
Jimma is having a little flutter on today's games:
£5 on Jermain Defoe to score in a 1-0 England win at 18/1, and Ladbrokes are offering a special bet on the England game with all the proceeds going to the Bobby Moore Cancer Trust, where you need to pick the correct score, first goalscorer and the time of that first goal, which is Jimma is copying with his above bet with the winner coming in the 89th minute and sticking a fiver on that too.
He's also having another £5 on Australia to beat Serbia 3-2 at 40/1.
Result: Jermain Defoe did score the only goal of the game in the 22nd minute in a 1-0 win for England over Slovenia, winning Jimma £90 on his original bet.
Australia beat Serbia 2-1, which wasn't enough for them to progress into the last 16 or win Jimma any money.
20th June 2010
Jimma is having a fiver on the Italy v New Zealand game ending in a 1-1 draw at 10/1 - a fiver on Chile beating Switzerland 2-1 at 8/1, and lastly another fiver on Honduras pulling off a shock and beating Spain 1-0 at 22/1.
Result: Oh yes! The All Whites did pull off a shock and hold the reigning World Champions to a 1-1 draw and win Jimma fifty quid. Though the other two results didn't go his way, with Chile beating Switzerland 1-0 and Spain beating Honduras 2-0.

He's also having a little punt on Tuesday's 2.30pm Queen Anne Stake at Royal Ascot, with a tenner on Rip Van Winkle to win at 5/1.
Results: Well Jimma was kinda close with the footy bet, but Stevie Gerrard scored first, and in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot, Goldikova got the meeting off to an explosive start as the dual Breeders' Cup Mile winner showed her class. Paco Boy put in a stirring late run to challenge the Freddie Head-trained winner, but lost out by a neck with 50-1 shot Dream Eater in third.
11th June 2010
