Crewe and Betting Zone followers have reason to celebrate.

Success for Crewe in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy provided bumper profits for Betting Zone followers after our Nick Hext tipped up the Alex at 66/1 in his competition preview.

Goals from Luke Murphy and Max Clayton secured Crewe a 2-0 victory over Southend at Wembley and that meant 99 points of profit arriving as a result of Hext's tip.

Our man wrote in his preview: "Crewe have fond memories of Wembley with their victory in last term's League Two play-off final and they have already nicely adjusted to a higher level of football.

"The Alex lost a couple of stars - Ashley Westwood and Nick Powell - to the Premier League during the summer transfer window but there is still more than enough quality in their squad to trouble every side in the JPT.

"They are another club we expect to sit in the middle of League One so this does offer them a real crack at some success this season."

Crewe currently sit 13th in League One but they won't be thinking about that now as they join the Betting Zone team in celebrating Johnstone's Paint Trophy glory.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

eing consistently and unrelentingly dog turd really takes it out of you. Try shadow boxing. That's what it's like watching Liverpool, punching thin air.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
