Arsenal v Man Utd - No Defence Offered
by nors on 19 Nov at 20:30
At one time not many years ago the Arsenal v Man Utd clash would have been a title decider but fortunes have plummeted for both, there is a real danger for their fans and their boards that 1 or both may not make the Champions League in 2015. Neither team has been consistent enough this season as you can see by the table below. Arsenal 5 Wins 42% 4 Losses 33% 3 Draws 25% Man Utd 4 Wins 33% 4 Losses 33% 4 Draws 33% Man Utd’s inconsistency is slightly more understandable than Arsenal’s. New manager Van Gaal has taken a chainsaw to David Moyes team and..

by tbuckley on 17 Nov at 22:26
Racing at Meydan, Dubai - journey to the 2015 Dubai World Cup begins YES!!! - racing at Meydan is back!!! - as you can tell from that intro I'm a huge fan of the racing from Meydan, I follow it with a passion, love watching it, punting on it and I always greatly look forward to the Meydan racing season starting. Now I'll hold my hands up and say that the new racing season at Meydan actually started 2 weeks ago on November 6th, I don't quite know how I missed it, I'll happily blame having my mind on enjoying the various hospitality days I enjoyed courtesy of OLBG and The Racing Post in the weeks before. I can't do anything about missing the start of the Meydan season but rest assured I've caught up with what happened and I'll cover that..
College Football - Week Thirteen Peview
by undertherobe on 21 Nov at 14:37
Back to winning ways for the blog last week with yet another 2-1 week and it’s now 9-5 over the past five weeks. Alabama never looked like losing at home to no.1 ranked Mississippi State and they came with 15 seconds of covering the spread. Florida State produced yet another comeback win whilst Georgia completed my winning week by stomping all over Auburn. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Oklahoma won on the road at Texas Tech to sneak back into the rankings at no. 20 but at 7-3 their hopes of reaching the playoffs are over. The same can’t be said of Oregon who had a week off last week and remained at no.2 in the rankings. Win their final two games and the Pac-12 Championship and they’ll..

The Troytown Handicap Chase is a Grade B handicap chase that is run at Navan racecourse in the 2nd half of November. The race is run over 3 miles and is open to all horses aged 4 or older and rated between 0 & 150. It is also one of the biggest chases run at the course ans 1 of the most attractive Handicap Chases run in Ireland throughout the season. I am looking at 9 different trends for the race, they are - Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins, Chase Wins & Distance. Any horse passing a trend with 10 gets 5 points, 9 gets 4 points, 8 gets 3 points, 7 gets 2 points and any horse passing a trend with 6 gets 1 point The 5 day declarations are - 72220- Cause Of Causes(216) 6..
Everton v WEST HAM UNITED

Everton v Wst Ham United 22-11-2014. 15.00. Goodison Park. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out West Ham 0-0 Aston Villa The Game The previous game saw us come from 2 down away to Stoke and ern a point as the game finished 2-2 so headed into this against an Aston Villa side with 6 defeats in a row and we had Sakho back into the starting eleven as well as Carroll on the bench for the first time. The game wasn't one for the neutrals and Agbonlahor missed Villas best opportunity of the half, and the game, as he had a decent chance but blasted well wide. West Ham were in control possession wise and attacked Villa but didn't create any clear cut chances and the Villa defense were able to combat our Ariel threat that has proved successful this season and our best chance..
STOKE v Burnley: Potters to Edge a Tight Game.
by trouserdog78 on 21 Nov at 10:07
There's nothing that distorts your sense of anticipation for a fixture like an international break. The scattergun approach to fixture placement during these long, painful weekends doesn't even afford fans a direct replacement for their beloved 3pm Saturday kick off (yeah, like that's the norm these days) so we now have no decent excuse to avoid being dragged around garden centres, elderly relatives' houses or, even worse, the horrors of early Christmas shopping. Whereas a fixture against Burnley would normally elicit the same level of anticipation as a visit to B&Q to look at the wallpaper, having suffered a weekend of pointless international garbage, I'm practically salivating at the prospect of Sean Dyche's unglamorous bunch arriving at the Brit. Oh the horrors of Hanley on a Saturday afternoon... I'll be falling to my knees and virtually kissing the p***-stained..
