Pre-season 2015/16 - The Liverpool Perspective; two weeks to go
by ibfm23 on 26 Jul at 12:00
Once again the Reds were amongst the most active clubs during the summer transfer window. Last year, we all had the ill feeling that the failure to replace Suarez would have a detrimental effect, and it did indeed. This time around though, Rodgers has done a better job at slotting in signings where required. Last time out, Liverpool conceded 48 goals in 38 matches, 10 or more goals short of the top four’s defensive record. This notwithstanding, the Reds kept 14 clean sheets, better than Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United. Yet, when things went wrong they went horribly wrong and Liverpool conceded more than 2 goals on 7 occasions which all ended in defeats. In comparison, the top four jointly conceded more than 2 goals 7 times! When things got hard, the Reds were unable to keep it together and this..
Premiership Transfer Window Losers
by botev1921 on 27 Jul at 16:33
After talking about the Premiership Transfer Window winners I decided to come back to the losers category I was considering and quickly go over the teams and players I consider to have done worse than expected or to have done certain moves that simply lack coherence and logic. While obviously for a certain transfer to be considered a failure one would need to monitor how things go for at least a couple of months, there were still those occasional pieces of business that just made very little sense in the context of what the teams/players needed to go one step further in their development. Feel free to add comments even if you disagree completely with some of my observations and we will be able to compare points of view come May 2016 and see who got it right or wrong...

Ante-Post bets for European leagues
by Epic on 30 Jul at 15:48
In recent years I have discovered the magic of ante-post bets for myself. I've always made bets here and there, but only recently I started to do more research regarding the selections as I feel they offer great value. I've been quite successful in picking out the winners and losers even before a ball has been kicked. And isn't it great when a long season has ended and you get an extra sum from pretty much nowhere added to your account? I've certainly enjoyed it and hopefully, if you follow my tips, you could also win big with bets made before the new football season has started. I've picked out ten ante-post bets, all with at least even odds, from European leagues. FRANCE Bordeaux to finish TOP 6 in Ligue 1 @ 2.20 (Unibet) Since winning the Ligue title in 2009 Bordeaux..

Newcastle And West Ham - Be Careful What You Wish For
by garethp1981 on 27 Jul at 19:10
In the last part of my football blog reviewing the 2014-15 season I wrote about three teams who had bad starts to the season and then managed to turn things around. In this blog I will be writing about teams who did the opposite, a reasonably good start followed by a poor second half of the season. One example of this is Newcastle United who managed to stay in the Premier League in the end with 39 points; but this total does not tell the full story of the season. Alan Pardew left the club officially on the 2nd of January, so the team had played 20 of their 38 games. He left them on 27 points which most people would agree is not fantastic but is far from relegation form (Hull and QPR both had 19 points at this..
Champions & Europa League 3rd Qualifying Round
by undertherobe on 27 Jul at 22:48
this summer, I’ve written a couple of blogs previewing the first and second qualifying rounds of the Champion League and Europa League with the idea of looking at those teams making their first competitive appearance of the season. We’re now at the third qualifying round of European Competition and with the start of the major European Leagues just around the corner, this will be the last instalment of these blogs until next season. I believe that there is plenty of money to be made from these early season matchups if you know where to look and the first two blogs have shown some positive results.... Results so far Europa League 1st Qualifying Round, 1st Leg Atlantas +1.00 @ 10/11 vs Beroe Stara Zagora : Atlantas 0-2 Beroe Stara Zagora Jelgava +1.50 @ 13/14 vs Litex Lovech : Jelgava 1-1 Litex Lovech NSI Runavik +1.25 @ 4/5..
