The ‘Romance of the Cup’ felt more like being mounted by an insatiable rhino yesterday thanks to surprise results for some of the Premier League’s big boys. Both Liverpool and Tottenham suffered shock exits at the hands of lower league opposition whilst Chelsea face a replay, which is arguably worse when you think it involves watching another game featuring a team managed by Rafa Benitez. For supporters of those clubs, it was harder to take than the ball from the grip of a Swansea ballboy.
Always wanting to put an e-arm around your e-shoulder and say ‘there, there’, Paddy Power are doing something to lift your spirits if you support one of yesterday’s loveable losers/drawers. We’re giving away Free Bets to supporters of Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea.
If you had previously set any of those three clubs as your favourite team on Paddy Power’s customised Team Pages and you had a bet on them yesterday, we’re sending our sympathies and more importantly, a Free Bet that you can use with hopefully more success than your aforementioned team managed.
If you haven’t already set your favourite team on our Football Pages, it’s well worth doing it. And not just because we dangle a juicy Free Bet shaped carrot in front of your eyes to do it every now and then. The team pages bring together all the latest odds on your team in one place and feature key stats (such as form and head to head data) to enhance your betting experience. It’s well worth a look. Plus every now and then you might get a Free Bet when your team lets you down! As for their results – there’s not much we can do about that.
