Champions league semi-finals preview & selections
by botev1921 on 24 Apr at 15:34
I doubt there are arguments against the statement that the best four teams in Europe, representing the top three European leagues made it to the semi-finals of the Champions league. I mean no disrespect to the Premiership, which remains probably the most competitive league, but based on recent evidence, it is one step behind Germany, Spain and now even Italy when it comes to the biggest tournament on the continent. After Atletico Madrid somewhat shocked the world last season as an underdog finalist, this time around it is pretty much back to business as we get teams who won their place at this stage of the competition fair and square by simply being better than the rest. How the competition will pan out remains to be seen, but by the looks of it, we are in for a real treat. BARCELONA..

World Snooker Championships 2015 - Quarter Finals Preview My ante-post money for the World Championships was on Ronnie O'Sullivan win and Mark Selby each way , unfortunately Mark Selby suffered defeat in the 2nd Round and I'm now left with Ronnie O'Sullivan carrying all of my hopes and my remaining ante-post money, fingers crossed for that.

#UFC186 Predictions #Johnson vs Horiguchi,#Rampage#Bisping#
by tattflash on 22 Apr at 22:33
This weekends action from Montreal, Canada sees Demetrious Johnson put his title on the line against tough Japanese star Kyoji Horiguchi. The supporting cast sees the return of "Rampage" jackson against brawler Fabio Maldanado in the co. main event, as well as British MMA star, Michael Bisping squaring up with CB Dolloway. It is a strange decision in my opinon to have both Kaufmann and Cote on the under card, not to mention Taleb on the prelims at the expense of Makdessi and Jabouin Main Card Demetrious Johnson vs Kyoji Horiguchi Champion Johnson comes into this fight as a huge favourite, and rightly so.Mighty Mouse has improved dramatically since dropping to this weight and winning the belt.Sporting a 21-2-1 record, Johnson has amassed a 7 fight win streak since his draw with Iam McCall, which included a decision win in the..
F1 - Early Season Report
by Ralfie1982 on 24 Apr at 23:32
I thought I would give a little early season review as we head to a small break before the races head over to Europe and start at Barcelona. So to the Teams :- Mercedes : Grade B+ I suspect I am not the only person who has been a little surprised at the apparent lack of development from last season and through out the close season, There are some gremlins still we saw it with breaking Last time out. They are still the fastest and I still think they will win the Drivers and the Constructors but I have been a little disappointed at this early stage how close the competitors are : Ferrrari Grade A- Really impressed with the steps Ferrari have taken, not only have they caught up to be closer with Mercedes they have also come from a long way..
Gameweek 34 - Hull vs Liverpool
by ibfm23 on 26 Apr at 08:17
The Baggies did what they do best and the Reds leave the Hawthornes with one guarantee; that Champions League football is now beyond reach. The draw between Southampton and Tottenham leaves the battle for fifth and sixth open and Tuesday’s match in hand becomes key for Rodgers’s side knowing that a win would build a 4 point cushion over the Saints. Unfortunately, beating Hull will be no easy task. Bruce’s men will be buoyed by the performance against Crystal Palace and with Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs and Manchester United still on their fixture list, the Tigers will be desperate for points. Tipping at this stage of the season is tricky to say the least. Fear (of the drop) and adrenaline (to avoid it) become determining factors; much more than skill and form. Liverpool are once again priced at evens and look too..
The Championship League, with two games remaining.
by meoldmate on 22 Apr at 19:16
THE CHAMPIONSHIP LEAGUE Since the start of this season, we have seen seven football clubs gracing the top spot in the Championship, with this position looking too hot to handle, with these teams taking their turns to be top. The seven teams Blackburn Bournemouth Nottingham Forest Norwich Watford Derby Middlesbrough Blackburn kick start the season off with top place, only to last a day to Bournemouth, this was the first and last time, The Rovers held this lucrative position, with them playing the day before and drawing 1-1 at home. When the rest of the Championship played on the Saturday, they slipped down to eleventh place, with Bournemouth marshalling the main position in the league. Team Matches Played Won Draw lost goals Goals Against Points Bournemouth 1 1 0 0 4 0 3 Watford 1 1 0 0 3 0 3 Middlesbrough 1 1 0 0 2 0 3 Millwall 1 1 0 0 2 0 3 Nottingham Forest 1 1 0 0 2 0 3 Ipswich 1 1 0 0 2 1 3 This was the look after one game, surprisingly to see Millwall gracing a play off zone position, now look, struggling to stay in the Championship. Bournemouth held this position until the 19th August, when..

by FrankieMonkhouse on 26 Apr at 22:02
Undoubtedly the most talked about match-up in recent boxing history goes ahead at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas on May 2nd when Floyd Mayweather Jnr and Manny Pacquiao finally lock horns. Some battles are bigger than titles and this is certainly one of those contests but, as well as the bragging rights and tag of the greatest fighter of his generation, WBC,WBO and WBA world honours are on the line and British fans can follow every blow live on Sky Sports Pay-Per-View. So it’s the fight every fan wanted to see and although there’s an argument for it happening a year or two too late, come the first bell a record crowd will be glued to the action.
