BetFred Refund United Fans Bets Calling Moyes and the Team Useless

betfred refund man utd fans

Fred Done the founder of BetFred has shocked us all by refunding over £200,000 in bets to “loyal Man Utd Fans” after calling the team “useless”.

BetFed which was first founded in 1967 in Salford, Manchester has been hit by bets on Manchester Utd in the past, but this decision is of their own making and one the fans (especially those getting their money back) will love.

In all honesty I don’t even think is a publicity stunt, BetFred are different to most bookies and just seem fairer to all, they offer bigger bonuses on some bets such as lucky 15’s and alike, this could just be a rare breed, a one off, a very special honest bookmaker with a conscience?

Fred’s statement might just say it all:

‘These loyal fans never had a chance of winning with United. This season the Reds have been useless, hopeless and meaningless,’ he said.

‘One of the reasons I’m doing this is, and becoming the first bookmaker ever to do so, is because of the way the fans were still singing for their team even though we were losing 3-0 to Liverpool.

‘I couldn’t believe it and they deserve a team much better than that put out by David Moyes.’

Bet Fred and Man Utd History – A Rocky Road!

In 1998 which doesn’t even seem that long ago! Betfred became the first bookies to pay out early in any league race, it was United fans who pocketed the early winning as their team were 12 points clear and seemingly unstoppable.

Arsenal however had other ideas and made the comeback of all comebacks to win the title and cost BetFed over £500,000 in the process.

History just about repeated itself when Man Utd were 5 points clear in 2012, and Betfred paid out early. Ooopps as i’m sure you all remember 2012 was the Year when Man City lifted the trophy in the very last game of the season thanks to a extra time goal from Aguero, it all changed from 2-1 down to 3-2 winners in just 4 mins!

Well done to Bet Fred, you’ve done the right thing, and an amazing thing!

Now how long is Moyes really going to last and can he cope with the pressure?
