STOKE v Chelsea: TV Clash is a Tricky Call
by trouserdog78 on 19 Dec at 14:33
"Stoke City are probably the most inconsistent team in the country," said the commentator during last week's game at Crystal Palace. "Yes," agreed his summariser, "Imagine how many coupons they've bust this season!" How right they are as well. Can you imagine being the poor bugger who has to write a pre-match blog on this basket case team before every game, trying to make sense of such random form? Just picture that poor mug, sat in front of his computer screen every week trying to get a handle on a team that beats Man City and Spurs away yet loses to Leicester and Burnley at home. Tell you what, that's a job I'd really hate to do... So, Chelsea at home then. A team who are better than us, and should beat us, which usually means that we turn into Barcelona..
Newcastle v SUNDERLAND

Newcastle v SUNDERLAND KO 13.30 Sunday 21st December Venue: St James Park, Newcastle An unbiased preview The Heritage The fierce rivalry which lies at the very heart of the Tyne and Wear Derby runs far deeper than football. It is a tale of two cities, two tribes, who's rivalry is perhaps unparalleled and pre-dates football by some 200 years. With the roots of hatred and dissent having grown for centuries, on Sunday afternoon you will see this released through every blade of grass into a cauldron of noise. This match has become the centrepiece of history and division in the North East and is played as much in the stands as it is on the pitch. This year their have been calls to temper the hatred, let history remain history and unite as fans of football, which is the case with..

In this blog i am looking at all 6 races over the last 5 runnings of each race, the meeting was cancelled in 2010 due to bad weather so i am going back to 2008 for the 5th year.

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..
Africa Cup of Nations - Equatorial Guinea - 2015 #ACN

Africa Cup of Nations - Equatorial Guinea - 2015 #ACN ACN South Africa 2013 - Read It Here! It will remain to be seen how much of a success this year’s Africa Cup of Nations will be after a very troubled run in. Morocco who were due to be hosting the tournament pulled out in November due to the threat of the Ebola virus that swept West Africa. Equatorial Guinea stepped in as hosts at the last moment and were allowed back in the tournament even though they had been previously banished due to fielding an ineligible player. The Tournament still runs from 17th January to 8th February 2015. Group C looks to be the ‘Group of Death’ with four very strong teams in there. Cameroon, Tunisia and Senegal all looked good in qualifying. As Senegal are in Group C, they may..
Gameweek 17 - Liverpool vs Arsenal
by ibfm23 on 18 Dec at 07:02
One of the worse results of the season turned up to be the best gameweek for the blog. Rooney and Van Persie were both on target and as expected Manchester United were easy victors. Ironically though, for the first time since the Tottenham match in gameweek 2, I was intrigued by the Reds. Intrigued by what appeared to be a sign of life. Intrigued by Sterling who ran ragged the United defense all afternoon. Intrigued by the returning Balotelli who arguably had his best Liverpool game only to be denied by MOM De Gea. The Spanish keeper was forced into 9 saves most of which were one on one situations. I followed the match with my fellow OLBGers through the forum and whilst I was initially annoyed that Rodgers opted for a false 9 approach, I quickly swallowed back my words..
College Football - Bowl Season Part One
by undertherobe on 17 Dec at 23:26
So we’re all done with another College Football regular season and despite the move to a four team playoff deciding by a committee rather than a computer, the final rankings were not without controversy as TCU were dropped from no.3 to no.6 to miss out on the playoffs altogether. As for the results from this blog, since Week Eight it’s been a winning week in all but one week as I’ve gone 15-8 over that span. Including the National Championship game, there are 39 Bowl games this year so plenty of opportunities to build on a strong second half of the season and finish the year in profit as overall on the year I’ve gone 21-22 with one push. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Oklahoma went 0-3 against Top..
