COMPETITION: Win a Free £/€50+ Bet on this footie and maps brainteaser

by Aidan Elder | September 19, 2012

**********THIS COMPETITION IS CLOSED*****************

We can only apologise for the late resolution of this competition. I could give you a string of plausible excuses but let’s be honest, if you’ve won a free bet you’re going to forgive us. If you haven’t then you’ll probably have a bit of a grumble. Rightly so. Aidan’s Twitter details are below. It’s actually not his fault at all but that just makes the thought of him being inundated with abuse all the funnier. Keep it within reasonable limits of abuse of course.

The outright winner is Ian Carroll who belated wins £79 in free bets.

I’ve also given extra £25 free bets to Hugh Orr (who I’ve just realised won the last of these competitions but the free bet has gone in and reversing it would way too much hassle) and Martin Condron.

It’s time for another edition of Whose Career Is It Anyway? where we ask you to combine football trivia, a knowledge of geography and pure luck for the juicy carrot of what will most likely be a Free Bet of a good bit more than £/€50.

This week we’re continuing with our new and not really improved map that allows us to accommodate players who have done their share of globe-trotting. The format is the same as ever.

  • Look at the flags on the map below
  • Figure out which clubs they relate to
  • Find out which player played for those clubs
  • Send in your answer
  • Pray you’re the only correct answer or you’ll be lucky enough to be drawn out of out hat

There is a reason for picking this week’s player in relation to the weekend’s football, but I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s a ‘topical’ reason. As usual, the flags in the map relate to EVERY CLUB this player has played for in his senior career – including loans. Best of luck.

Competition: Whose Career Is It Anyway

Send your answer to with the subject line ‘Racking up the airmiles’. Or don’t, it doesn’t really make any difference to your entry.

DON’T PUT YOUR ANSWERS IN THE COMMENTS SECTION – you’ll only be helping an opponent and giving me license to take the piss out of you. You’re allowed more than one guess, but you’re clever and probably won’t need it.

The prize starts off as a €/£50 Free Bet, but will grow by one euro or pound for every time this tweet gets retweeted or every time this competition gets shared on Facebook, Google+ or LinkedIn. That should boost the fund rather substantially and you might win that prize, so you should definitely do it. In the event we get more than one correct answer, the winner shall be drawn from my hat of mystery.

Get your answers in before 10am on Tuesday September 25 and I’ll announce the winner soon after. You can use the comments section for begging for clues or general observations on life, but NO ANSWERS please. If you want to contact me, you can do so using the Twitter machine where I’m @PaddyPowerAidan.

– Customers must be over the age of 18, have a valid account and been around long enough to remember Noel’s House Party.
– Maximum size of the free bet will be €/£150.
– Paddy Power decision is final and moaning will be gleefully ridiculed in public.
