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...
Trainers to follow in August
by Scratville on 31 Jul at 22:40
July would have been good had it not been for Mr Simcock, it looks like we're going to have a small loss for July. We roll on to August with a plethora of trainers to follow, August hasn't been good to us in the past but i'm quietly confident that I've uncovered a few good ones this month. Lets hope so as we need to get the blog back on track. FLAT AW RALPH BECKETT (ALL) Going to start with some of the best figures on show this month. Beckett has been a friend to the blog in the past and has some cracking AW figures in August. 2011 - 0/6 - 0% - (£ 6.00) 2012 - 6/18 - 33% - +£ 0.85 2013 ..
MLB Review - We 25.07.15
by undertherobe on 26 Jul at 07:41
Another excellent week in baseball ended with a no-hitter for Cole Hamels in Chicago. Hamels has been the subject of trade rumours for a while now and yesterday may well have been his final appearance in a Phillies uniform. In this week’s blog I look at four pitchers who are hot property this week as the trade deadline approaches, which teams to back and oppose in extra innings and another three pitchers to watch.... Picks Review Zack Greinke continued his remarkable run on Sunday as he outdueled Max Scherzer in Washington to extend his scoreless streak beyond 43 innings and he hasn’t given up a run since June 13th. The Dodgers found some offense against the Washington bullpen and racked up 15 hits in a 5-0 win. Greinke finished with 8 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 11 SO. It wasn’t just Greinke who..
Campbell v Coyle - Saturday - Sky Sports
by FrankieMonkhouse on 29 Jul at 11:33
Warring neighbours Luke Campbell and Tommy Coyle finally put their long-running feud to bed when meeting in their home town of Hull on Saturday evening in front of the Sky Sports cameras. The vacant WBC International lightweight title may be up for grabs for the winner but some bouts mean much more than titles and this certainly appears to be one of them. The majority of fight fans seem to have 27-year-old Campbell picked here and bookmakers are happy to keep the Olympic gold medallist on side following a perfect 11-fight start to his professional career. The 5ft 9inch southpaw’s CV looks pretty underwhelming on paper with many of his opponents boasting modest records but he has dealt with the men placed in front of him with relative ease, halting nine inside the scheduled distance including each of his last five. Odds..

The Stewards Cup is the biggest handicap race run at the 5 day Glorious Goodwood meeting, the race takes place on the Saturday, the final day of the meeting and is run over 6 furlongs. Many horses who took part in the Wokingham Handicap over the same distance at the Royal Meeting often take their chance here. Richard Hughes (pictured) is the most winning jockey with 4 wins after riding Intrinsic to victory last year How will he fair this year on his final ride in the race before he retires to get ready for his forthcoming training career. As usual, i have looked at the last 10 runnings of the race and looked at the following trends - Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins and Draw Any horse scoring a 10 will score 5 points, a 9..
Norwich City V's Crystal Palace - 8th August 3pm KO
by Ralfie1982 on 30 Jul at 20:35
Norwich v Crystal Palace Delighted to be asked to give my view on CPFC matches as they come up. I will try to be factual and matter of fact as best I can but I make no apologies if occasionally my heart will rule my head. So here is my first one, please let me know what you think and if you want to know anything else. Some History / Match Stats Under 2.5 goals in last 4 meeting of the two clubs. Norwich have won 10 of the 23 times they have met at Carrow Road 7 Draws and 6 losses make up the remainder. Dont take pre-season to seriously CPFC (and I think NCFC) have put mixed teams out. Palace conceded plenty from set pieces under Pardew - NCFC have plenty of big forwards (and CB's) such as Hooper,..
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..
