WEST HAM UNITED v Man City

West Ham United v Manchester City 25-10-2014. 12.45. The Boleyn. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out Burnley 1-3 West Ham The Game The half finished goalless but it wasn't without it's chances, both sides hit the woodwork through Downing, who was back at the tip of the diamond and back running the show, and Boyd for Burnley, who was a constant threat to the Hammers. A goal was rightly chalked off for offside when Burnley thought they had taken the lead and signs of a potentially long afternoon were raised when Sakho missed a glorious chance after a fantastic cross from Cresswell, the warning was there..... Half Time A different West Ham came out for the second half compared to the one that went in and the loud 3,000 away fans were even louder when Cresswell played in another beautiful cross and Sakho headed in from..

by The Executioner on 22 Oct at 16:55
As the jumps season starts to get in to full swing many of us will be looking for areas in which we can try to obtain an advantage in our ongoing battle with the bookmakers. Whilst past performances can never offer a guarantee for the future, it can however at times be beneficial to understand and identify certain trainers and jockeys plans. We all know that trainers will try to peak their leading horses for the big festivals such as Cheltenham , Aintree and Punchestown in the latter part of the season, but along the way there will be many more meetings to be taken in, not just the ones offering big prizes at the weekend but also the day to day ‘ bread and butter ‘ meetings. : For this particular feature I have identified four trainers and four jockeys..

There’s a plethora of live punching this weekend with Sky Sports screening all of the action from Hull while BoxNation set up in Liverpool and terrestrial TV viewers are catered for when the Channel 5 cameras travel to Monte Carlo.

We offer up a betting tip on each of the channels and start with Sky Sports fantastic Saturday fight night card at the Hull Arena in Yorkshire where local lad Tommy Coyle faces ring legend Michael Katsidis for the IBF International lightweight title.

The 34-year-old has lost four of his seven outings since that night however and..
The Southampton Perspective: Saints vs Stoke Preview
by danbradley on 23 Oct at 09:27
The Southampton Perspective: Saints vs Stoke Not many, including myself, were expecting the 8-0 demolition of Sunderland at the weekend. It was Southampton’s biggest win of the Premier League era, during which it has only been bettered by Manchester United’s 9-0 win over Ipswich several years ago. Fortunately for me, I backed Graziano Pelle to continue his goalscoring run and he obliged, scoring the first goal (after the own goal) to mean losses were limited to just -1.5 LSP. It was one of those games, however, where I was happy to take a small loss and simply enjoy the spectacle on show from my team. It can’t be denied that Sunderland were atrocious and played their part in the huge scoreline. Around half of the goals were the direct result of individual or team errors from the visitors, and so I am..

West Ham United v Manchester City, Saturday 25th October (12:45ko) Preview Firstly welcome to my blog and my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. This week I'll be writing about our 9th Premier League match, our opponents are East London's finest, West Ham United. This is my personal favourite when it comes to London away days, West Ham have a great support that has always come across to me as very normal and down to earth support, that can't be said of the support for some of their London neighbours and I can honestly say that no matter the result I've always enjoyed my trip to Upton Park as a visiting fan. The 3 time FA Cup winners have a generally local fan base that's large in numbers and loyal. They maintain this..
The Biggest Mug Bet in Racing?
by garethp1981 on 21 Oct at 07:18
As an OLBG member I have been lucky enough to get the chance to join fellow members at the races a couple of times now. Of course the atmosphere at the racecourse and the racing itself is fantastic, but my favourite aspect of it is probably the conversations I have had with fellow members about racing as well as other sports. The most recent outing was to Doncaster and it did not disappoint in terms of the racing or the conversation, in fact I left not only having been lucky enough to win some money but also with a couple of ideas for things to write about in this blog. One conversation that I wasn’t actually involved in, but which I overheard on the way down to watch the OLBG race was about lucky 15 bets and the gist of..
