The Southampton Perspective: Saints Visit Hull City
by danbradley on 30 Oct at 12:11
The Southampton Perspective: Saints Visit Hull Another week, and another two wins for the Saints after Ronald Koeman’s men made it back to back victories over Stoke by beating them in the League Cup on Wednesday after managing a 1-0 win at the weekend. It seems to just keep getting better and better for the Saints as their amazing run of wins in all competitions lengthened to 9 wins from 10 games. Hull are next on the list for the Saints, and based on the current form of the two sides there is no reason for Southampton to be fearing the Tigers It is worth remembering that the Saints have had a relatively kind start to the season from the fixture list generators, and though they now face Hull, Leicester and Villa - three very beatable teams on recent evidence -..
£700 for a television ?

"THE FACT THAT AN OPINION HAS BEEN WIDELY HELD IS NO EVIDENCE WHATEVER THAT IT IS NOT UTTERLY ABSURD." Bertrand Russell Philosopher and Mathematician. I sat at the bar next to Andy one of my oldest friends , I had played a blinder I thought sitting with my slip that had 14/1 scribbled onto it , the slip was now trading at 7/1 according to the female and Big Mac , although with no access to a computer I had to let him run. Something dawned on me that day that has stayed with my ever since, I mean I had often read racing books written by the pros on the importance of being different and going against the crowd, yet on this day it seemed just the importance of common sense, I was looking at the market in a completely different..
Charlie Hall Chase Trends (updated 29/10)
by Micko70 on 28 Oct at 20:03
For me the winter jumps season starts when the Charlie Hall meeting at Wetherby gets under way, the race is a Grade 2 race and has been won by some good horses in the past. The race takes place on Saturday November 1st and OLBG also sponsor a mares hurdle race on the same card. I am using a new scoring system for trends races now, any horse passing a trend with a 9 or a 10 will get 3 points, any horse passing a trend with 7 or 8 will get 2 points and any horse passing a trend with 5 or 6 will get 1 point. I am looking at 8 trends for this race, they are, Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins & Grade Win There are 11 horses declared for the race..
Breeders Cup Races - Day One , Friday 31/10/14
by The Executioner on 29 Oct at 17:16
The Breeders Cup is often referred to as the World Championships of horseracing , it's just quality through and through with a mixture of turf and dirt racing. The best of America welcomes the best from around the world over a variety of distances and despite the difficulties in trying to find a winner or two it doesn't stop us as punters doing our best to put one over on the bookmakers. Once again as expected it looks a hugely competitive two days of action with the highlight of the meeting being the Breeders Cup Classic , which by tradition is the final race run on Saturday. Friday's action sees four races , in some way acting as a starter before the main course of nine Breeders Cup races on Saturday. : *** Please note numbers 15 & 16 in the..
Gameweek 10 - Newcastle vs Liverpool
by ibfm23 on 31 Oct at 05:35
The November schedule opens with 3 key matches over an eight day period. Liverpool first travel to Newcastle and Madrid and then host league leaders Chelsea. Eight days of hell? Or possibly eight days of redemption? All be it being the League Cup, the midweek reaction against Swansea was somewhat encouraging, as was Balotelli’s much awaited goal. The Reds make the trip up to the north east on the back of a 4-match unbeaten run in the league. This notwithstanding there is still a general lack of confidence around the club. This run did not comprise any of the top 4 teams, the Reds only won 1 of 3 home matches and the 2 wins which came against the modest West Brom and QPR were too much of a close call to consider satisfactory. On the other hand the Magpies appear..
Trainers to follow in November
by Scratville on 29 Oct at 22:48
October was a fantastic month, currently above £90.00 LSP, that almost assures us another £100+ LSP year. We managed a tiny profit last November, hopefully we can improve on that this year. Plenty to go at this month and although it looks like a lot of trainers I think the number of runners will be less than last month as most of the trainers runners will be limited to a certain type eg (Chasers on the NH). NH ALAN KING (CHASERS) High profile trainer but I think it's the first time he's appeared on the blog. King has a decent record in general in November but his Chasers have a much better record. 2010 4/22 18% +£ 8.50 2011 9/36 25% ..
Stoke City v WEST HAM UNITED-45/1 Scorecast.
by redhammer on 29 Oct at 18:31
Stoke City v West Ham United 1-11-2014. 15.00. The Brittania. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out West Ham 2-1 Man City The Game Last years champions came to the Boleyn and both sides were in a confident mood, City had played in the champions league, blowing a 2-0 lead in Russia while West Ham had won their last 2 on the trot. Allardyce named an unchanged side and it was his side who were on the backfoot from the off for the first 20 minutes as City created few half chanes with Aguero looking off the boil. A free kick inside the City half saw a long ball into the City box, nodded on by Reid and Valencia took contorl only to smash it against Joe Harts chest, leaving him flat our for a few minutes. Man of the match Song was controlling the..
