Now Thats What I Call Thrift: #6

Thrift Thursday’s return with a special double header this week as Michael ‘How Much?!’ Gray gets involved. But first, how to create your own football insurance policy.
Football games can be expensive; someone’s got to pay the money to keep those guys in diamond earrings and massive headphones. Gillet and Hicks weren’t paying them and I know Glazer isn’t. So who is? You my fellow gradult! You’re paying half his win bonus with that hot dog! Those pints you had at half time are paying for his wife’s dog’s masseuse. How demoralising to loosen the purse strings only to see a drab 0-0 then. But here’s the tip of the week, before the game chuck a couple of quid on a goalless draw and if the worst does happen you’ll get most of your money back. Ingenious!
*I do realise that if you go and watch a drab 1-0 defeat then you would of paid the money for the ticket and the extra couple of quid for the bet, making it worse. Use Thrift 6 at your own risk, that’s all I’m saying.
