Betfair, usually. You can check all the bookies on Oddschecker, probably not worth the bother.

I did consider starting a thread on the Brexit from Wimbledon 2016 but decided that the list would soon become unmanageably long! :lol:

I am not sure why my spellchecker doesn't believe that "unmanageably" is a real word :roll:

Well, if you excluded Scotland, the thread wouldn't last terribly long in time terms :)

I'm getting my money back. On France to get past Iceland at the normally prohibitive 5/1 on. Can't fail.

9 of the 23 Welsh squad were born in England so Skysports claims nevertheless good luck to Wales for tomorrow;s victory against Portugal?

If it were chess, who would win, Wales or Portugal?

Portugal have a few GM's and Wales don't, so that may provide a clue.

I don't care about either TBH, I just want Wales to win, preferably with Ronaldo being banned from football for life
