Goal Difference, does it matter?
by bobslay13 on 19 Dec at 00:02
Many would argue that goal difference (GD) is just a statistic and at the end of the day the position in the league table is all that matters. A lot of emphasis is put on the wins and losses of recent form but I believe that goal difference can go a long way to showing a side’s potential. I always look at GD when predicting 1X2 results. A team with a good goal difference that has not necessarily got the results to show for it is probably an indication that the team has been unlucky. As we know, football is a very unpredictable sport and anything can happen, teams can dominate games and lose to one shot on target from their weaker opposition. Usually the tide turns on sides with bad luck and they get their rewards in the long..

Make Money with Top scoring Black Cats Top Sunderland Scorer this season It's really interesting to look at the odds available for Sunderland's top scorer this season. Whilst the bookies have pinned all hope on Steven Fletcher at 1/4 (bet victor) I see value lying elsewhere. Sunderland don't score many goals and this season Sunderland's goals have been pretty evenly spread amongst a few players. Current goals scoring table Steven Fletcher 4 Jordi Gomez 3 Connor Whickham 3 Adam Johnson 2 Seb Larsson 2 Whilst Fletcher is currently the top goal scorer the odds are not in any way attractive or necessarily reflective of his chance of winning. He is without doubt the most natural..
Africa Cup of Nations - Equatorial Guinea - 2015 #ACN

Africa Cup of Nations - Equatorial Guinea - 2015 #ACN ACN South Africa 2013 - Read It Here! It will remain to be seen how much of a success this year’s Africa Cup of Nations will be after a very troubled run in. Morocco who were due to be hosting the tournament pulled out in November due to the threat of the Ebola virus that swept West Africa. Equatorial Guinea stepped in as hosts at the last moment and were allowed back in the tournament even though they had been previously banished due to fielding an ineligible player. The Tournament still runs from 17th January to 8th February 2015. Group C looks to be the ‘Group of Death’ with four very strong teams in there. Cameroon, Tunisia and Senegal all looked good in qualifying. As Senegal are in Group C, they may..
Goose is getting fat, wallet getting thin, three Christmas crackers for a Yuletide grin!
by Randy Rann on 17 Dec at 22:49
Three longshots to hopefully bring a bit of festive cheer. Well it's that time of year when giving rather than receiving is the right thing to do, and that giving comes at a price! The real festive period is nearly upon us and after a last minute present shopping spree, enough food purchased to feed an army, a booze run and the dreaded tax bill that needs attention.......the cup doth not runneth over! The yuletide extravagances mean punting takes a backseat, but with a host of big races on the horizon, a little bit of what you like never hurt anyone, and if you can find some value, then have a dabble. That's the trouble, finding value as the bookies tighten up the prices on all the talking horses and squeeze the juice out of some tasty oranges! That said though, Christmas needs..
It's time to start backing the Blue Jackets
by Epic on 13 Dec at 11:57
Looking at the current NHL league standings, it can be said that the Columbus Blue Jackets have been one of the biggest disappointments of the season. Looks can be deceiving though. The young club, which reached the playoffs for only the second time in its history last season, has so far been ravaged by injuries and this has held them back. So far the Jackets have just 24 points from 28 games. Only the Carolina Hurricanes have a worse record in the Eastern Conference. But there is light in the tunnel. The team has gained great momentum in December, so far winning all five games. The infirmary is starting to clear and it seems like the team is ready to start climbing up from the bottom. Right now there are five players still missing - leaving out forward Nathan Horton, whose career..
Southampton vs Everton - Six Straight defeats for Saints?
by danbradley on 18 Dec at 09:53
Southampton vs Everton - Six Straight defeats for Saints? It’s been a terrible week for the Saints, as defeats against Burnley and Sheffield United meant it is now 5 losses in a row. The wheels are coming off after a brilliant start, and fans are now looking at that winning run as a distant memory. What Southampton desperately need is a morale-boosting victory, and another defeat to the Toffees this weekend would send Saints fans into Christmas with a feeling of ‘Bah, Humbug’. The defeats to Man City, Arsenal and Man United could be seen as acceptable, but only on the premise that wins against the two unfashionable clubs that followed were secured, with Everton around the corner, it is hard to look upon upcoming fixtures with much positivity from a Southampton perspective. vs Everton - The Team Things don’t get any easier for..
