I’ll stick to that, but it’s pretty difficult after one of the more dramatic weeks down at Upton Park.
A vital win over Wigan and a 4-0 humbling of mighty Man Utd has saved Avram Grant’s neck.
And now the bookies are dangling the price of 7/2 in front of me for Sunday’s visit to Sunderland who are struggling for form and missing half their first choice back line.
But it’s vital to stay strong and look for opportunities elsewhere despite the cash almost jumping out of my wallet every time that price is mentioned.
I’ll make do with a proper Sunday lunch and another three-point haul in the fight to dodge relegation while picking-up winners elsewhere.
Last week was a case of close but no cigar as both our long-odds tips fizzled out into draws.
Man City are still too flaky for my liking and a solid looking Bolton outfit are no forlorn hope at 6/1 with Paddy Power.
I’ll look down under for another decent price where the bookies have got obsessed with the second test in Adelaide being a draw.
I’m sticking to my guns that England are the better side so let’s have a bit of 11/4 with BetFred that the pitch starts to crack late on and Graeme Swann spins us to victory.
