College Football - Week Thirteen Peview
by undertherobe on 21 Nov at 14:37
Back to winning ways for the blog last week with yet another 2-1 week and it’s now 9-5 over the past five weeks. Alabama never looked like losing at home to no.1 ranked Mississippi State and they came with 15 seconds of covering the spread. Florida State produced yet another comeback win whilst Georgia completed my winning week by stomping all over Auburn. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Oklahoma won on the road at Texas Tech to sneak back into the rankings at no. 20 but at 7-3 their hopes of reaching the playoffs are over. The same can’t be said of Oregon who had a week off last week and remained at no.2 in the rankings. Win their final two games and the Pac-12 Championship and they’ll..
Saunders v Eubank - Saturday - BoxNation
by FrankieMonkhouse on 24 Nov at 09:45
One of the most talked about domestic fights in recent years goes ahead in London on Saturday when unbeaten pair Billy Joe Saunders and Chris Eubank Jnr clash for British, Commonwealth and European middleweight titles. It’s an old cliché in the fight game, somebodies ‘0’ has to go, but don’t we just love it! BoxNation screen all of the action live from the ExCel Arena and bookmakers give fans the chance to back their opinions up with a bet. This fight has split opinion right down the middle and odds compilers have taken up their position on the fence with little to separate the warring pair in the betting. 25-year-old Billy Joe Saunders signed professional terms with promoter Frank Warren after a hugely impressive career in the amateur ranks which culminated with an appearance at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing...

A Blue Point of View

Southampton v Manchester City Sunday 30th November (13:30 ko) 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 13th Premier League match this season. We travel down to the south coast to take on the very impressive Southampton at St Mary's stadium. As said above, Southampton have been very, very impressive so far this season. During the summer Saints fans had witnessed their side that was so impressive last season ripped apart. The side that managed to finish 8th in the Premier League was decimated as players like Luke Shaw, Dejan Loveren, Callum Chambers, Adam Lallana & Ricky Lambert were all sold to bigger clubs. They also loaned out the likes of Gaston Ramirez, Pablo Osvaldo & Artur Boruc..
