My Top 10 midweek football picks
by tbuckley on 17 Aug at 19:46
My Top 10 midweek football picks After a very busy summer writing and punting on the World Cup followed by a few weeks of intensive ante-post market studying, I took my own much needed pre-season break from writing, betting and computers to re-charge my batteries ready for the long season ahead. The good news is the week away with my family and away from computers has freshened me up completely and now I'm raring to go to get stuck into all the football action and betting now the domestic season has started. My strategy for the first few weeks and months of the season is mainly watch to see how all the teams and players are settling down and betting wise to take things very cautiously in terms of staking and to only have small stakes bets on those teams who have..

Three reasons why Man Utd won't finish in the top 4
by botev1921 on 16 Aug at 23:59
It takes a 5:1 win over Spain to impress the World, but after seeing Man Utd play their first official game of the season, I am far from impressed as obviously Luis Van Gaal is miles away from having a team remotely capable of beating anybody 5:1 in Manchester. International football is a much different material than club football and whoever thought it takes one good manager to magically turn around a team that obviously lacks a lot of components to be competitive, is now kicking themselves. It is a shame the honeymoon period for the Red Devils lasted for only a handful of summer friendlies, but neither against Valencia (their last friendly) nor against Swansea United had a clear idea of what they are doing and that forced my hand on the very first day of the season to..
