Hi guys.
Just want to let you know that I placed a bet on the Euro final with Paddy Power
The bet was which cliche would be said first by the BBC commentator.
I chose "never write off the Germans" at 25/1 and although I heard it said it was well into the second half so I expected to have lost.
When I checked my account 2 days later the bet was still pending.
So i contacted Paddy Power to ask what cliche had won this market and was told that "Under achievers" in the 87th minute.
When I questioned this I was told that the commentator had said " never write off Germany" in the 61st minute, but that was not the exact quote that I had bet on.

I then exchanged a few Emails with their customer complaints department and as an "act of good will" they paid me out £260.

Happy days

Good bookie paddy is, likes to keep his good name, bet you would have got nowhere with someone like Ladbrokes or William Hills!

Well done!
