I'm not defending it, just working out of it's incompetence or just that it's not a big priority in the first place. Maybe the staff involved were averting a bigger problem that kept more clients happy, that would be staggering competence? And not enough staff on call for simultaneous problems would be just how most places are, even banks. It's not good but it's never really possible to know what's happened and why.
Turning the wrong market in play to avert a bigger problem! :D I know you want to defend Betfair and keep those freebies coming but you need to give your tongue a break sometimes, Shaun.

Would be interesting to know what % of customers this affected, probably very low. It won't bother straight punters much, it won't bother traders who don't do football, or those who trade football but don't do games like this. Even here I don't suppose it's affect that many. Staggering incompetence really only applies to things that were staggeringly important to start with.
Sorry Shaun but I cannot agree that staggering incompetence is dependant upon staggering importance. If I sat an A level exam for VBA Coding I would be shown up as "staggeringly incompetent" but in no way would knowledge of VBA Coding be considered "staggeringly important"! The two are mutually exclusive. To mix the management of two events is clearly a show of incompetence the only question is is it staggeringly so? I believe it is. I was in the financial industry and had to conform initially with FSA 1986 and the evolution of compliance within that industry. If a stockbroker or other provided a service to the low standard Betfair does the Regulators would be down on them like a ton of bricks with a very heavy fine and they would have to quickly implement better systems/markets or be out of business.

:lol: Reduced capacity?

Apart from Celtic and Rangers, that won't make any difference to the rest of the league

Arsenal look good value to me. Chelsea have been nowhere near consistent enough to back at 2.22

I'd be interested to see how much gets matched today.

My thoughts precisely Le Tiss. I was frankly astounded to see I could get on Arsenal at 4s! Their history in the Cup is second to none and even versus Chelsea, so it was really poorly priced IMO. I must confess a little doubt crept in after the poor start and subsequent Chelsea goal, but I didn't panic and managed to get a profit locked in after the wonderful Aubameyang penalty. I guessed he'd score after his double in the semi and also 2.5+ and BTTS. The only disappointment was that Giroud didn't score, costing me £25, but nonetheless a greatpayout for small stakes overall.

I'm on Chinese Super League - Henan v Guangzhou

84 mins 1-1, there's a yellow card

All the bookies reopen their markets, BF exchange is suspended for 3 mins until 87th minute

Who's responsible for these ongoing issues. The quality of service is so poor at times
