Want some football tips? Well, the Wealdstone Raider will now give you some! Wealdstone FC football fan and Internet celebrity Gordon Hill, a.k.a. “The Wealdstone Raider”, has teamed up with Freebets.co.uk, 888 Sport and Coral Sports to set himself up as a football tipster for the new Premier League season.
For those who have been living under a rock and are still unaware of him, Gordon became a YouTube sensation after a video of him having a rant at a non-league football match went viral. “You’ve got no fans!”, he shouted, amongst other choice phrases, and then proceeded to turn on the guy filming him enquiring “You want some? I’ll give it ya!”. These were soon to become his very own catchphrases as the hit video propelled him into the limelight.
That 33-second clip has now been viewed over 9 million times and has somehow made Gordon very famous. Indeed, it became a life changing event for him. Standing at just 5 foot 2 inches tall, this wee bespectacled man with an unmistakable speech delivery has extraordinarily unique appeal.
A builder by trade, the 48-year-old’s life has been turned upside down and he now finds himself doing regular guest spots on TV and radio and making public appearances at nightclubs and events. Gordon now has over 100,000 Twitter followers and was also rated as the top Internet meme of December 2014 by BBC News.
He has even reached the top 5 of the UK singles charts with his novelty Christmas song which raised £10,000 for charities including Great Ormond Street Hospital where Gordon himself was treated throughout much of his childhood for toxoplasmosis.
Hill said “Everybody else is making money out of me, so I thought; why don’t I make a few pounds for charity”.
This unlikely cult figure, some would say figure of fun, is now trying his hand at being a football tipster and will be producing regular videos with Freebets.co.uk where he will give out a fourfold accumulator bet on the Premier League games each week hoping this time to make a few quid for his fans.
So far he hasn’t fared too well, with a 50% strike rate over the first two weeks, but he’s surely due to land one soon at potentially decent odds to give his legions of followers something to shout about.
