Ah Saturday. What’s not to love?
A Merseyside derby. A North London derby. United, City and Chelsea playing at 3pm.
For too long during the off-season it was a day fraught with the danger of being dragged around the shops or dusting down the DIY kit.
But not anymore – and Paddy’s here to help you reclaim Saturdays – and make Sunday even better with his place 5 bets on Saturday get a free bet of £/€5 on Sunday football offer. (T&Cs below)
‘But there’s not much football on Sunday’ we hear you cry in a rather annoying high-pitched voice.
Wrong, my friend. So very wrong. Because from 1.15pm-8pm on Sunday you can sit back, relax and watch the games (below) live – only pausing to change channels to watch Europe hopefully hand the Yanks their ass as the Ryder Cup reaches it climax.
There’s also a load of other La Liga, Eredivise, Serie A and Bundesliga fixtures to get your teeth into.
Sunday’s sorted football fans.
