A Blue Point of View
by RACHACE on 21 Aug at 09:55
Manchester City v Liverpool Monday 25th August Preview Firstly welcome to my blog and my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. We're only 1 week into the new Barclays Premier League season and we've already got one of the mouth watering clashes as last seasons champions take on last seasons runner up. This fixture is always one I look forward to, Liverpool fans attend in their numbers and are amongst the most vocal and passionate around. It's usually a very good game to watch for the neutral also and I expect this one to be no different. Last season this fixture produced some very good counter attacking football, Liverpool were the best footballing side that visited the Etihad last season. That Boxing Day, Liverpool were top of the league at Christmas..

by redhammer on 20 Aug at 20:02
23/08/14 Palace v West Ham Last time out West Ham United0-1 Tottenham Hotspur On the opening day West Ham played Spurs at home in their 38th last home league game before leaving Upton Park. After a reasonably poor pre-season but some really good additions in the transfer window saw mixed expectations among the home fans with the main focus on the style of play they endured last season under Sam Allardyce. Sell out crowd which signaled their support for the side and arguable the manager, when Spurs scored in stoppage time, what might have been met with a chorus of booing was in fact met with a huge rendition of 'I'm forever blowing bubbles' which represented the satisfaction with their sides efforts against one of their rivals. Line Up Adrian, O'Brien, Collins (sent off), Reid, Cresswell, Kouyate, Noble, Nolan(c), Vaz Te, Downing, Cole. Subs: Jääskeläinen,..

Three reasons why Man Utd won't finish in the top 4
by botev1921 on 16 Aug at 23:59
It takes a 5:1 win over Spain to impress the World, but after seeing Man Utd play their first official game of the season, I am far from impressed as obviously Luis Van Gaal is miles away from having a team remotely capable of beating anybody 5:1 in Manchester. International football is a much different material than club football and whoever thought it takes one good manager to magically turn around a team that obviously lacks a lot of components to be competitive, is now kicking themselves. It is a shame the honeymoon period for the Red Devils lasted for only a handful of summer friendlies, but neither against Valencia (their last friendly) nor against Swansea United had a clear idea of what they are doing and that forced my hand on the very first day of the season to..
The Ebor Handicap Trends
by Micko70 on 17 Aug at 21:14
The Ebor Handicap is widely regarded as one of the biggest Flat handicaps during the season, it is run at the York 4 day Ebor meeting in August. The race is run over 1m 6f and has been won by some good horses in the past, including Purple Moon (2007), Sergeant Cecil (2005), Quick Ransom (1992), Further Flight (1990) & Sea Pigeon (1979). The winner this year will collect over £160,000, a fantastic prize for a flat race. I am looking at the last 10 years of the race to see if any horses stand out by looking at the trends of those 10 winners. The Trends i am looking at are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Season Runs, Season Wins, Distance, Grade & Field Size There are still 76 horses left in the race, they are - 1-7088 Camborne(7) 6..
