by botev1921 on 14 Sep at 23:21
After the great season we had last year and the tons of positive messages regarding our Weekly Euro Football Blog, we are back with a bigger team and even more determined to help you out with well-developed selections on the biggest European leagues and the Champions league. The idea behind the blog is to get differing opinions on the best bets for the best matches in Europe over the weekend from a panel of experts. Each tipster provides their perception of the way the game will pan out and where the value bet in the mass football markets might be. These opinions can be used in any way you wish. You may wish to take one bet where the panel agrees (signalled out as CONSENSUS PICK) and add that to existing bets you have or mix and match the various European..
Liverpool - Ludogorets Preview - The Bulgarian Perspective
by botev1921 on 15 Sep at 22:17
It is no shock to me that English fans have absolutely no idea who Ludogorets are and the Bulgarian champions are one of those very interesting nobodies you see in the Champions league every once in a while, but in the context of the very questionable Liverpool performances lately, it is worth looking at the Ludogorets perspective and measure their chances of getting some sort of result on Anfield. If you are interested in a first hand info on Ludogorets, feel free to check my pre-season team preview Ludogorets (Razgrad) - The Story as I guarantee you will find all you need to know about them from start to finish. Ludogorets under their new manager - clash of two cultures To be brutally honest, you need to have seen Ludogorets play in more than one or two games in order to have..
Champions League Gameweek 1 - Liverpool vs Ludogorets
by ibfm23 on 14 Sep at 13:39
With only three days to prepare for the Champions League clash against Ludogorets, Liverpool have no time to cry on spilled milk. The match against Aston Villa evidenced some tactical weaknesses and Rodgers must work very hard to improve and most importantly create alternative offensive approaches. As expected, the Liverpool boss went for rotation, yet in all fairness I was shocked to learn of Sterling’s absence. I believe that Coutinho’s and/or Markovic’s style would have been more suited to the upcoming match against the Bulgarians, more so with Sturridge out injured. With the Villans fielding a number of heavyweights, I was expecting to see Lambert from the first minute alongside Balotelli. As it happened, the Italian was embroiled in a pointless physical battle with the powerful Villa back four whilst the trio of midfield anchors easily controlled Liverpool’s second line..

Chelsea vs Everton review/Swansea preview Everton FC (A) Goodison Park After Diego Costa was close to being ruled out of this game he was deemed fit enough to start following a minor muscle injury.Willian came in for the injured Schurrle while Oscar dropped out of the squad altogether to be replaced by Ramires.

All form,history and stats pretty much went out of the window when Costa opened the scoring after just 35 seconds,a sloppy attempt at an..
College Football - Week Three Peview
by undertherobe on 10 Sep at 19:50
For the first half of Saturday everything was going well. Stanford made far too many mistakes in crucial positions on the offense and USC held on for a low scoring 13-10 victory and Michigan State stifled the explosive Oregon offense to go in at half-time 24-18 ahead in Eugene. That was as good as it got though as the Ducks were immense in the 2nd half and scored 28 unanswered points to overcome the Spartans 46-27 whilst in South Bend, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish became the first team in thirty years and 365 games to shutout the Michigan Wolverines in a 31-0 victory. So, for the second time in as many weeks, one of my picks was undone by a 2nd half rampage and it left me with a 1-2 week. In my season preview (view it HERE) I..
10 NH horses to follow for 2014/2015
by Micko70 on 14 Sep at 20:09
The Winter National Hunt season is nearly upon us and it's my favourite type of racing, i love the sight of top quality horses jumping hurdles & fences. Many punters like to follow certain trainers or jockeys, but i normally follow a list of horses that i have either been given or have built up myself. This list comprises of 10 horses i will be following for the National Hunt Season, hopefully this list can give me plenty of winners throughout the season and with a bit of luck, we can see one or more winning at the end of season festivals, such as Cheltenham or Aintree. Baltimore Rock - David Pipe Baltimore Rock has yet to finish outside the first 4 in any of his 9 NH races to date, he won on his nh debut when winning a 17f bumper at Bangor..
