Why UEFA need to act on the minnows
by undertherobe on 18 Oct at 09:57
I like football at all levels and will always try and watch as much as possible from around the world. International football? Well, not so much. I watched the opening minutes of the England vs San Marino game last week and then thought, what’s the point? England are clearly going to win whether it’s 1-0 or 8-0 and there is absolutely nothing a team like England can learn against countries such as San Marino and surely it’s now time for UEFA to act. I do like the fact that both FIFA, UEFA and the remaining football confederations ensure that all countries, no matter how weak, have the chance to qualify for the major tournaments but the European qualifying event is ridiculous in that it brings together all 54 countries into one big event. We have clear minnow such as Malta, Liechtenstein,..

West Ham United v Manchester City, Saturday 25th October (12:45ko) Preview Firstly welcome to my blog and my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. This week I'll be writing about our 9th Premier League match, our opponents are East London's finest, West Ham United. This is my personal favourite when it comes to London away days, West Ham have a great support that has always come across to me as very normal and down to earth support, that can't be said of the support for some of their London neighbours and I can honestly say that no matter the result I've always enjoyed my trip to Upton Park as a visiting fan. The 3 time FA Cup winners have a generally local fan base that's large in numbers and loyal. They maintain this..
WEST HAM UNITED v Man City

West Ham United v Manchester City 25-10-2014. 12.45. The Boleyn. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out Burnley 1-3 West Ham The Game The half finished goalless but it wasn't without it's chances, both sides hit the woodwork through Downing, who was back at the tip of the diamond and back running the show, and Boyd for Burnley, who was a constant threat to the Hammers. A goal was rightly chalked off for offside when Burnley thought they had taken the lead and signs of a potentially long afternoon were raised when Sakho missed a glorious chance after a fantastic cross from Cresswell, the warning was there..... Half Time A different West Ham came out for the second half compared to the one that went in and the loud 3,000 away fans were even louder when Cresswell played in another beautiful cross and Sakho headed in from..

Profitable Trainer & Jockey Stats For The National Hunt Season 2014/15
by The Executioner on 22 Oct at 16:55
As the jumps season starts to get in to full swing many of us will be looking for areas in which we can try to obtain an advantage in our ongoing battle with the bookmakers. Whilst past performances can never offer a guarantee for the future, it can however at times be beneficial to understand and identify certain trainers and jockeys plans. We all know that trainers will try to peak their leading horses for the big festivals such as Cheltenham , Aintree and Punchestown in the latter part of the season, but along the way there will be many more meetings to be taken in, not just the ones offering big prizes at the weekend but also the day to day ‘ bread and butter ‘ meetings. : For this particular feature I have identified four trainers and four jockeys..
