Pre-season 2015/16 - The Liverpool Perspective; two weeks to go
by ibfm23 on 26 Jul at 12:00
Once again the Reds were amongst the most active clubs during the summer transfer window. Last year, we all had the ill feeling that the failure to replace Suarez would have a detrimental effect, and it did indeed. This time around though, Rodgers has done a better job at slotting in signings where required. Last time out, Liverpool conceded 48 goals in 38 matches, 10 or more goals short of the top four’s defensive record. This notwithstanding, the Reds kept 14 clean sheets, better than Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United. Yet, when things went wrong they went horribly wrong and Liverpool conceded more than 2 goals on 7 occasions which all ended in defeats. In comparison, the top four jointly conceded more than 2 goals 7 times! When things got hard, the Reds were unable to keep it together and this..
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..
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..
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..
MLB Review - We 25.07.15
by undertherobe on 26 Jul at 07:41
Another excellent week in baseball ended with a no-hitter for Cole Hamels in Chicago. Hamels has been the subject of trade rumours for a while now and yesterday may well have been his final appearance in a Phillies uniform. In this week’s blog I look at four pitchers who are hot property this week as the trade deadline approaches, which teams to back and oppose in extra innings and another three pitchers to watch.... Picks Review Zack Greinke continued his remarkable run on Sunday as he outdueled Max Scherzer in Washington to extend his scoreless streak beyond 43 innings and he hasn’t given up a run since June 13th. The Dodgers found some offense against the Washington bullpen and racked up 15 hits in a 5-0 win. Greinke finished with 8 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 11 SO. It wasn’t just Greinke who..
