Next Manager Out Of The Premier League Door
by bitmoretechnical on 24 Jul at 16:20
Brendan Rodgers is almost a universal favourite to be the first manager booted out of the Premier League but there are at least three managers whose odds of leaving their job next make much better bets. Best Bets McClaren, Newcastle 33/1 Owners: It seems like only yesterday that Mike Ashley was just a businessman, rather than the target of spite for so many Geordies. Ashley has his favourites but he has also lost patience with many managers in very short periods - Pardew was the exception to the rule. Manager's record last five years: McClaren has been sacked in four of the last five seasons, across three different countries. Verdict: Fantastic odds for a ropey manager with a tetchy chairman. Flores, Watford 6/1 Owners: Pozzo Family in charge since summer 2012. On their sixth manager since then. They sack bosses even when results are..
Premiership Transfer Window Losers
by botev1921 on 27 Jul at 16:33
After talking about the Premiership Transfer Window winners I decided to come back to the losers category I was considering and quickly go over the teams and players I consider to have done worse than expected or to have done certain moves that simply lack coherence and logic. While obviously for a certain transfer to be considered a failure one would need to monitor how things go for at least a couple of months, there were still those occasional pieces of business that just made very little sense in the context of what the teams/players needed to go one step further in their development. Feel free to add comments even if you disagree completely with some of my observations and we will be able to compare points of view come May 2016 and see who got it right or wrong...
2015/16 European League Trends
by undertherobe on 22 Jul at 22:18
Last season I wrote a short blog looking at relegation trends amongst some of the top leagues in Europe (VIEW HERE). Despite getting Leicester and Burnley the wrong way around, relegations for Paderborn and Cesena softened the blow and a small loss of 2% was made. For 2015/16 I’m going to take another look at some trends over the last few seasons concerning title winners and relegation across the biggest leagues in Europe with the hope of finding some profit come next May Premier League Winners CHELSEA won their 4th title in the Premier League era last season but not since 2006-07 to 2008-09 has a team retained the Premier League when Manchester United won three in a row. That was preceded by two titles in a row for Chelsea but six seasons in a row without a team winning back to back..
Champions & Europa League 3rd Qualifying Round
by undertherobe on 27 Jul at 22:48
this summer, I’ve written a couple of blogs previewing the first and second qualifying rounds of the Champion League and Europa League with the idea of looking at those teams making their first competitive appearance of the season. We’re now at the third qualifying round of European Competition and with the start of the major European Leagues just around the corner, this will be the last instalment of these blogs until next season. I believe that there is plenty of money to be made from these early season matchups if you know where to look and the first two blogs have shown some positive results.... Results so far Europa League 1st Qualifying Round, 1st Leg Atlantas +1.00 @ 10/11 vs Beroe Stara Zagora : Atlantas 0-2 Beroe Stara Zagora Jelgava +1.50 @ 13/14 vs Litex Lovech : Jelgava 1-1 Litex Lovech NSI Runavik +1.25 @ 4/5..
Who'll win the 2015/16 Skybet League One?
by bobslay13 on 27 Jul at 20:48
Who’ll win the 2015/16 Skybet League One? 2 weeks to go until the first round of league fixtures in the 2015/16 season get underway; a good time to start trying to predict who’s going to win the divisions of the Football League. Many teams are still pretty under-staffed but most are starting to take shape and have the spine of their side sorted so I think we can make pretty logical predictions now. I’ll be looking at League Two in the next week or so but this episode I’m focusing on League One. League One So, who are the main competitors? I’m not going to look at every side in the league. Nor am I looking at who might clinch promotion because that means a chunky review of at least half the division; rather I’m going to look at a handful of teams..
Goodwood 5.25 NAT WEST STAKES (Handicap)
by meoldmate on 29 Jul at 01:08
Day one of Goodwood, was not that kind to my two blogs, hopefully this one could be more rewarding, with this being the get out stakes, last race. Handicap over seven furlongs and at present stage twenty go to post, this race is going to produce, many unlucky stories, with tiring horses and horses trying to find the room to make a play from the pace from, of course the ones that are drawn wide looking for cover will not be helping the ones on the inside. Plenty to ponder about in a handicap of this size. If the rain stays away, the ground would be running on the good side and with the wind that has been around, could start to appear a lot faster. HISTORY Just going back five years with winners of this race and I will place the draw..
