Paddy was well and truly caught with his pants down after a monumental rick in enhancing Liverpool from 5/4 to 5/2 at half time ‘to score next’ saw punters take him for a cool six-figure sum on Sunday afternoon.
His recklessness – and Daniel Sturridge’s accuracy – means the bean counters have a ready-to-roll copy of his P45 hooked up to the printer and someone’s going to want to hit the print button real soon.
Trouble was Paddy – just before pub time on Friday – had also signed off on a Money Back Special all losing First Goalscorer, Last & Correct Score & Scorecast singles on the match if Luis Suarez scored the last goal.
Now Paddy prides himself as being King of the Money Back Specials, Extra-Place Specials and Justice Payouts. And with Liverpool fans facing the prospect of Everton sitting six points above them in the table with just five games left – the Uruguayan international popped up to level the scores after the Reds trailed 2-1 with 99 minutes on the clock.
Suarez’s goal may have left Paddy as the darling of football punters but he’s about as popular as Ashley Cole with the higher-ups.
