WHAT HAVE THE ROMANS EVER DONE FOR US ??

WHAT HAVE THE ROMANS EVER DONE FOR US ?? “All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?” REG OF THE PEOPLES FRONT OF JUDEA. (THE LIFE OF BRIAN) FINEFORM, ONLY ON A WEDNESDAY. I want to spin a yarn on systems; primarily I want to put them in perspective. The basic premise of a system is back fitting results into a neatly arranged pattern that shows profit, the premise being that what has passed before will play out in the future. Inevitably the system starts to fail, so the Reg moment from the life of Brian plays out. The system maker needs to start back fitting again to stay in profit so the game begins………….. Hmmm if we back the top rated system picks..

Odds on Relegation Teams in danger... Burnley - The Bookies favourites for the drop have managed to pick up a couple of wins recently and drag themselves out of the drop zone. Although it's likely they'll occupy one of the magical bottom three places again soon. Without the financial might of the likes of QPR it is difficult to see how a burnley will manage to avoid the drop. They have gone multiple games without scoring this season, which is never a good sign and their squad lacks real depth. Times will get tougher as the season draws on, injuries will likely come and cause further problems for the lads from Turf Moor. It's hard to see how they will escape the drop back down to the championship at the first time of asking. Best odds: 1/2 multiple..
Gameweek 17 - Liverpool vs Arsenal
by ibfm23 on 18 Dec at 07:02
One of the worse results of the season turned up to be the best gameweek for the blog. Rooney and Van Persie were both on target and as expected Manchester United were easy victors. Ironically though, for the first time since the Tottenham match in gameweek 2, I was intrigued by the Reds. Intrigued by what appeared to be a sign of life. Intrigued by Sterling who ran ragged the United defense all afternoon. Intrigued by the returning Balotelli who arguably had his best Liverpool game only to be denied by MOM De Gea. The Spanish keeper was forced into 9 saves most of which were one on one situations. I followed the match with my fellow OLBGers through the forum and whilst I was initially annoyed that Rodgers opted for a false 9 approach, I quickly swallowed back my words..
College Football - Bowl Season Part One
by undertherobe on 17 Dec at 23:26
So we’re all done with another College Football regular season and despite the move to a four team playoff deciding by a committee rather than a computer, the final rankings were not without controversy as TCU were dropped from no.3 to no.6 to miss out on the playoffs altogether. As for the results from this blog, since Week Eight it’s been a winning week in all but one week as I’ve gone 15-8 over that span. Including the National Championship game, there are 39 Bowl games this year so plenty of opportunities to build on a strong second half of the season and finish the year in profit as overall on the year I’ve gone 21-22 with one push. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Oklahoma went 0-3 against Top..
Goal Difference, does it matter?
by bobslay13 on 19 Dec at 00:02
Many would argue that goal difference (GD) is just a statistic and at the end of the day the position in the league table is all that matters. A lot of emphasis is put on the wins and losses of recent form but I believe that goal difference can go a long way to showing a side’s potential. I always look at GD when predicting 1X2 results. A team with a good goal difference that has not necessarily got the results to show for it is probably an indication that the team has been unlucky. As we know, football is a very unpredictable sport and anything can happen, teams can dominate games and lose to one shot on target from their weaker opposition. Usually the tide turns on sides with bad luck and they get their rewards in the long..

Statistics and thoughts for all Live Premier League Fixtures over Christmas
by tbuckley on 18 Dec at 00:39
Statistics and thoughts for all Live Premier League Fixtures over Christmas Christmas is now well upon us all with Christmas Day itself just a week away and for the football world Christmas means an hectic, intense schedule of matches with matches coming thick and fast. Now all the footballers and especially their own families might not be delighted about the Christmas football schedule but for all of us football fans it's fantastic having all the matches to watch, discuss and get involved in. Personally speaking I'm really looking forward to watching and having an interest in as many matches as possible this Christmas but I also want to make sure I spend my time off work chilling out with a big part of that spending less time on the PC. I love to look at all the matches in detail ie the betting..
