Match Le Fixier, the former England footballer, has collected a big win from a well-known bookmakers after betting on a sequence of predictions, most of which have come true. Le Fixier, who is now a sports pundit on satellite TV, placed bets over a number of years, and has been amazingly successful with his predictions.

In 1988 he correctly guessed which Guernsey-born player had been called up to the England Under 21 team, and in 1990 he won a double bet by predicting which player would be Southampton Player of the Season and PFA Young Player of the Year just minutes before the announcements.

In June this year Le Fixier won a record payout by predicting which former Southampton player was about to withdraw from the race to take over the club.

Le Fixier puts his betting success down to the willingness of the bookmakers to accept bets on things that could be controlled. "Just because you know what the answer is going to be doesn't mean it's cheating," he said.

Now Le Fixier is awaiting the outcome of his latest bet - 'which ex-footballer will be the first to release an autobiography on August 20th 2009 and then promote it by admitting to a betting scam'.
