by tbuckley on 30 Aug at 21:15
Premier League 2015/16 weekend 4 Statistical Review + Updated Overall figures It has been truly fantastic to have domestic football back, the first few weeks have just been absolutely brilliant with the Premier League proving great goals and entertainment. In this blog I'm going to look at some facts and figures from last weekend in the Premier League, indeed I'll endeavour to do my best to do this as often as possible :- Total Goals Scored The 10 Premier League matches played produced a total of 21 goals, at an average of 2.1 goals per Premier League game with the highest scoring game seeing 4 goals scored as Villa vs Sunderland finished 2-2 in an early season relegation clash. Overall that's now 98 goals which have been scored in the first 40 Premier League games at an average of..
Is home advantage disappearing in the Premier League?
by garethp1981 on 30 Aug at 15:28
I am starting this blog with a question, imagine I ask you to take a coin out of your pocket and tell you to toss the coin five times. Each time I the coin lands on heads, I then ask you to toss the same coin a sixth time but before you toss the coin you have to tell me what you think the result will be. What should you say? I will come back to the answer later on. At the time of writing, there have been 38 games played in the Premier League, obviously this is not a huge number, but a surprising trend may be starting to unfold this season and that is the lack of home wins. Usually the home win is the most likely outcome of a game; during the last ten seasons of Premier..
BetFred Sprint Cup Group 1 Haydock preview
by DAVIDADAN on 01 Sep at 01:16
The Betfred Sprint Cup is a Group 1 flat race for horses aged three years or older. It is run annually at Haydock Park over a distance of 6 furlongs. Currently John Gosden is the Leading Trainer - 4 Winners and Sheik Mohammed is the Leading Owner - 4 Winners Alas this race comes too soon for Muhaarar from the prestigious stable of Sheik Hamdan Al Maktoum whose three time Gp1 winner Charlie Hills will most likely see that he heads to Champions Day at Ascot or maybe later America beckons in the Breeders Cup Mile, please do keep that one on side where ever he goes, do note his previous wins and discount future progress at your peril the latter option seems folly to ignore! From my Ante Post thoughts Henry Candys Limato would have been my first choice however I can,t..

by Scratville on 01 Sep at 02:01
A fantastic August means we are close to +£100 LSP for the year and with September historically being a profitable month, (+£12 and +£55) in the last two years it's an exciting month in prospect.

National Hunt and Winter Jumps Racing 2015/2016 - Part One
by The Market Man on 31 Aug at 22:32
September is on the horizon and the National Hunt meetings begin to increase in both frequency and quality. Over the next few weeks i'll be taking a look at the Winter season ahead with a view to highlighting both the horses to follow and the races to be aware of with a view to the Cheltenham Festival next March - trainers, like the rest of us, have habits and routines and spotting them can provide us with a clearer picture of their runners and riders. Last season i highlighted Many Clouds as one of two horses to follow and what a year the Oliver Sherwood trained gelding had, bookending the season with wins in arguably the two biggest handicaps of them all - the Hennessy Gold Cup and the Grand National The man they all have to beat, the..
