Despite standing a massive chance of winning promotion to The Championship this Saturday, Leeds United’s game against Bristol Rovers is not being televised! It isn’t even on any of those dodgy internet streaming sites… not that I would know.

However, it has been brought to my attention that online bookmakers, Bet365, stream selected League One games; but only to non-UK customers. Racists. It is something to do with TV rights and us Brits not being allowed to see our national game being played. Racists.

After some clever thinking, I have managed to ‘trick’ the Bet365 website into thinking I’m European and therefore allowing me to watch English football. How have I done this? No, I haven’t just eaten a load of cheese and worn garlic around my neck – I am using a proxy to make it look like I am on a Belgium internet connection. Simples.

Bet365 are yet to announce their fixtures for the weekend, but I hope Leeds’ game is included. If I do use the proxy, however, I am slightly worried that Ray Winstone – the big, tough cockney who advertises the bookmakers on Sky, will come round to my flat to ‘Sort me out’.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
