    So I'm reading that an post guy put 40k on the match.

    What I can't find out is whether or not Norway won

    Had a quick look through the Norwegian FA's website.

    Now unless my Norwegian is horrifically bad this link seems to have details of all their fixtures

    It seems they didn't play a match on the 9th of June 2011

    they lost 3-0 to Germany on the 16th
    they beat Equatorial Guinea 1-0 on the 29th
    they lost 3-0 to Brazil on the 3rd of July
    they lost 2-1 to Australia on the 6th of July

    So sadly for said postman, that was a lot of money offered to Paddy if indeed he had a wager on the ladies of Norway to win on the 6th of July

    The court heard O’Reilly had developed a chronic gambling problem and he had an account called “Tony Ten” with Paddy Power Bookmakers. When the account was examined it was found that over the period in question it had a turnover of €10 million, with €8.3 million in winnings and €1.7 million in losses.

    Am I missing something? He was up 8.3 million, should have left him at it.. :eek:

    Just poor journalism. It means he wagered 10 million and had returns of 8.3 million
