  • User AvatarHenry VIII { Thank you very much for the tribute Andrew. Daniel was the gentleman of the betting game. I've been reading and commenting here for years and I regret never meeting him in person. I hope the other sites can take up the slack but I think there is still a gap for a budding new bet site owner as Sofabet was unique. I say "was" but thanks Andrew for keeping it's to date history online. It has a huge reserve of information for those new to this game, and for all those interested in the dark arts behind the making of something like X Factor. There's nothing like it and it is a great legacy to Daniel. } – 9 February 2019 at 12:00 pm
  • User AvatarStephen Muckle { This came as a huge shock when I found out about this. I always enjoyed reading his analysis whether it be Eurovision or X Factor. I've always enjoyed Eurovision but his analysis was probably one of the reasons I became such a dedicated fan in more recent years. RIP Daniel } – 1 February 2019 at 10:49 pm
  • User AvatarGuildo Horn Forever { Am shocked to read of Daniel's death. I never met him, but from avidly reading his many posts and articles, and listening to his contributions in podcasts, he seemed a very articulate, deep thinking, savvy, upbeat and kind gentleman. It was very kind of him to post some of my bits and pieces on this site. I quickly learnt he had a terrific talent as an editor, too! Although I'd watched X Factor, Eurovision etc over the years, it was only through Daniel and the whole witty, perceptive and challenging Sofabet community that I gradually learnt to see what I was watching. My thanks to Daniel and to everyone else here for that. It all feels so sad and shocking. Condolences to his friends and family. RIP, Daniel. } – 1 February 2019 at 3:18 pm
  • User AvatarJohn { Hi everyone, so sorry to hear of Daniel's passing. I'm an infrequent poster but was a dedicated reader of his site. He had a rare insight, balanced approach and I particularly admired how tactful, humble and decent he always was. He seemed like a really awesome guy, and my sincere condolences to everyone who knew him personally and through the site. } – 30 January 2019 at 8:53 pm
  • User AvatarVictor { Hi, just to send my condolences to his family and friends. I logged on 2 days ago and this really hit me. Although I never met him I have followed this blog for a few years now and always took into account Daniel's opinions. Such a shame someone so young and full of life is leaving us. Rest in peace Daniel. You will not be forgotten. } – 24 January 2019 at 9:57 pm
