Every punter knows the pain of selecting a team to back in a tight match, feeling the joy of seeing them going ahead and counting your money – until it all inevitably goes pear shaped and they bottle it in the final half hour. That team then joins the list of clubs you vow never to back again.
Enough is enough! We feel your pain. Our new offer for Premier League games shown live on Sky Sports and BT will bring an end to this punting cruelty.
Everyone can recall the times they’ve been let down by a team when everything looked rosy. Maybe it was Arsenal at home in a game when they looked sure to win but took their foot off the pedal. Or Liverpool being pegged back thanks to some Mignolet madness. You just never know when disaster can strike.
Who are the heart breakers?
Who exactly are the teams that see more last minute action than the dancefloor in Coppers. We got the log tables out and tapped away at the calculator to find the teams who have scored/conceded the most goals in the final 30 mins.
David Moyes’ men have been struggling this campaign and are yet to record a win. So far this season, Sunderland have scored 83% of their goals in the last 30 mins. Most notably breaking the hearts of West Brom backers earlier this month when Patrick Van Aanolt came off the bench to grab an equaliser and deny a punters a 13/10 shot.
Stoke are no strangers to late drama! This season they have registered 57% of their goals after 60 minutes, some of which have devastated punters. Their Joe Allen inspired comeback against Man United this season ruined punters’ afternoon. With only 8 minutes to go United backers were counting their money only for the Welsh Xavi to pop up in 83rd minute to rescue a point.
