It doesn't do it for some.

You're probably wise not to do it, too.

It's ok I had a feeling it was because of that. I will keep Filip for myself. And Lee.



I should do this too! Although I am pretty sure I will blow all the money in 7 days
I am a very silly boy indeed.

Don't do it. Please don't do it. Trust me.

I would probably say I am all the things you mentioned except having an unbiased judgement on picking winners. I have so many players that I like to different extents that things always get messy.

Makes sense, Filip would be your Nole and Alex your Rafa.

I doubt my vmom would help me gamble...

But if I were to do it I would start with 20€ tops, and give it up when I got to 0. I can't waste money like that. I need to save all my money for better things

Food.

Electronics.

Music -- although not so much anymore.

I also want a new car.

Plus, I own a house. There's always money going out when you have a house.

It will take over you if you do it too much. Save your money instead.

That's not wasting money, or blowing it on nothing.

At least you get a tangible return.

How did I forget electronics.

A new car? You have been keeping this from us because you knew we wouldn't approve. Your car is FINE. I love it.

I will think about it next season. Would be good to get some money. But I would mostly likely lose it.

Seriously, 6 years old is not old for a car

Life of a student, eh? Broke?

My brother phones home occasionally complaining that he has no money left, he's lost his phone, his student finance balance is incorrect etc.

Yet most people look back on those years of their life and say they are amongst the best.

Your car is a Toyota? me, I kept reading about the Prius but I thought it was a car brand not a model. Yes, that is how great my knowledge on cars is.
