by tbuckley on 15 Dec at 16:34
Racing at Meydan, Dubai - Results, Review and Preview As I've said before on my blogs covering Meydan, I'm a huge fan of the racing from Meydan and have been since 2010, I follow it with a passion, love watching it, punting on it and I always greatly look forward to the Meydan racing season starting. This week sees the 4th week of the new racing season on the dirt at Meydan and as the weeks go by I'll do my best to review the action and update with news, views and horses/trainers to follow, for those interested my last Meydan blog covered why I'm so taken by Meydan. Meydan definitely represents a real punting challenge, most definitely will be the case this year with the switch back to dirt from Tapeta, but it's a challenge well worth taking in my opinion..
BREAKING BAD(HABITS) - WALTER WHITE AND ARSENE WENGER
by pompeybuster12 on 12 Dec at 22:11
BREAKING BAD(HABITS)-WALTER WHITE AND ARSENE WENGER "You clearly don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, and you think that of me? No! I am the one who knocks!" Walter White. “When you look at people who are successful, you will find that they aren't the people who are motivated, but have consistency in their motivation.” Arsene Wenger. THE LONG WALK As Arsene Wenger left the train station at Stoke under a torrent of abuse, he must have stopped, looked around and wondered where it had all gone wrong. An empire seemingly collapsing around him. It had once been so different for the Frenchman, he was the man who revolutionised Arsenal and the English game and yet when he landed on our shores he was..

A Blue Point of View
by RACHACE on 16 Dec at 21:11
Man City v Crystal Palace Saturday 20th December (12:45 ko) Preview Firstly welcome to my blog and my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. I'm writing about our 17th Premier League match of the season, at the Etihad against Neil Warnock and his Crystal Palace side. Crystal Palace had a solid start to the season, they're a hard working team, full of commitment and are quite difficult to beat which are all hallmarks of a Neil Warnock side. They've proven to be a match for Arsenal, Chelsea & Man Utd this season as all 3 of those sides had only beaten Palace by just 1 goal. Arsenal needed a very late winner against them and Man Utd were very lucky as Crystal Palace had a number of good chances that they failed to put..
WEST HAM UNITED V Leicester City

West Ham United v Leicester 20-12-2014. 15.00. The Boleyn. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out Sunderland 1-1 West Ham The Game West Ham arrived in confidence after coming from behind to defeat Swansea 3-1 on the previous Sunday, to face a Sunderland side who were looking like draw specialists.... From the off, both sides played with a high tempo with end to end stuff but generally it was the visitors who had the edge as the possession they had was in Sunderland's half and Carroll had a near post header go wide. Sunderland were looking dangerous on the counter attacks as they did it with pace and had the option to go direct and it was this, that lead to the opening goal.....Adam Johnson squared up to Tomkin's on the edge of the area and tried to go down the side, but the Hammers defender..

The Welsh National usually takes place on the 27th December and is run at Chepstow racecourse. The race is run over 3 miles 5 and a half furlongs and a total of 21 fences will be jumped during the race. Last years renewal had a purse of £100,000 and the winner received a very tasty £56,950.

Champions league draw analysis - Last 16
by botev1921 on 15 Dec at 19:49
This season I am once again looking at the Champions league draw immediately after it is out in order to quickly draw some conclusions on what direction punters can take when approaching these games in a couple of months. Of course, as always, games which are scheduled long time from now could be looked at from several perspectives as the time passes, but the early observations serve as pretty solid foundation for monitoring the teams involved and ultimately we can get some better preparation for when the right moment comes for us to pull the trigger. At the same time, the markets will open almost immediately and while it is risky to commit to anything that early, you never know what value could be missed as the winter break passes for some teams while others are dealing with congested winter..
