Race to the Stanley Cup playoffs - who will take the 8th seed in the East?
by Epic on 26 Mar at 18:55
With just over two weeks to go until the end of the NHL regular season, you can already feel the playoff atmosphere in certain games. Like LA Kings' defenseman Drew Doughty said this week - it's already playoffs for them. A lackluster first half of the season has left the defending Stanley Cup champs scrambling for a playoff berth. And they aren't alone. The Boston Bruins are another big club, which is struggling to make it to the playoffs. This after winning the Presidents Trophy last year for the best regular season record. The Bruins face a big battle to climb back to the Eastern Conference's Top 8. Even with poor form, the Bruins held on to the final playoff spot in the East for quite a while, but this week the Ottawa Senators finally grabbed it to themselves. A month..

Malaysian Grand Prix 2015
by Ralfie1982 on 25 Mar at 21:42
So Formula 1 Race 2. Is it boring? I dont know, will you get rich backing it in the early stages of the grand prix season i very much doubt it. SO! What have we learn't about the teams after race 1? Mercedes are in a League of their own, McLaren are so bad that Alonso might wish he was still unfit to drive, Ferrari look more competitive than expected, and the early season slagging match between Renault and Red Bull has started again. What do we know about the Malaysian circuit? There are two BIG DRS zones close together (the first on the start finish straight before 1st corner and the 2nd on the last straight before the final turn 15), this will point us to the cars with the better top speed such as Mercedes, Williams and Force..
Big Decision on Big Sam

Big Decision on Big Sam This summer the manager of West Ham, Sam Allardyce, will be offered a new deal at The Hammers or a thank you for your hard work and a cheerio. His relationship with the fans has never been simple but with plenty against the appointment from the word go and with promotion at the first time of asking (via the play off's, just) many felt it wasn't good enough with the squad and budget he had at his disposal. First year up and it was a safe and sound season with a 10th place finish with some good and some not so good results. As a result the board reward the gaffer with a new 2 year contract and signed Andy Carroll for a record 15 million breaking the 11m for Jarvis that they purchased for Sam..
Should UEFA change the international qualification system?
by botev1921 on 29 Mar at 15:11
As the Euro 2016 qualifiers continue to dominate the European football scene over the past few days, I keep reading discussions regarding the competitiveness of those qualifiers and the evident misbalance in European football between the so-called traditional football countries and the smaller, less traditional teams who as it stands right now have no shot at qualifying for anything or to go even further, can’t beat eggs, never mind other teams. While the argument has two sides, especially when it comes to the original idea of the game, namely to promote sport and inclusion, the people who see no point whatsoever in Scotland or England needing to play the likes of Gibraltar and San Marino actually make a better case for a complete revamp of the qualification system. I wonder will the UEFA committees will ever consider taking that step? FOR..
A league table that could be over looked due to its status
by meoldmate on 23 Mar at 21:16
SPFL League Two Here is one league that, many members from South of the border would not really register with, unless the games are of interest when selecting on a football coupon. There are four teams heading for promotion from this league, three with a view of a play off and one Champion. The four teams teams that could be considered for the title are as follows. Stranraer Morton Forfar Brechin I suppose some membres would be of the thinking, who would be interested in this league and these teams. Possibly Scottish folk, who live in other parts of the British Isles and abroad and football fans, who take teams like these four and possibly others under their wing, just for interest. When I was a boy, I was fascinated with Stenhousemuir, possibly by the name and nothing else, as I could not tell you anything about them, I..
