A Blue Point of View
by RACHACE on 29 Oct at 22:30
Manchester City v Manchester United, Sunday 2nd November (13:30) 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 10th Premier League match this season and it's the 1st Manchester derby of the season. Drama, Drama and more Drama is what this fixture has consistently provided for the neutral. For City fans it's generally provided a horribly tense build up with a week full of thoughts of "what if we lose" or "what if we win". This match is the biggest of the season, the one that we simply have to win and it consumes your thoughts the week before and the week after it's finished. Fergie time winners by Rooney, Scholes, Owen & Van Persie. Fluke overhead shins..
Gameweek 10 - Newcastle vs Liverpool
by ibfm23 on 31 Oct at 05:35
The November schedule opens with 3 key matches over an eight day period. Liverpool first travel to Newcastle and Madrid and then host league leaders Chelsea. Eight days of hell? Or possibly eight days of redemption? All be it being the League Cup, the midweek reaction against Swansea was somewhat encouraging, as was Balotelli’s much awaited goal. The Reds make the trip up to the north east on the back of a 4-match unbeaten run in the league. This notwithstanding there is still a general lack of confidence around the club. This run did not comprise any of the top 4 teams, the Reds only won 1 of 3 home matches and the 2 wins which came against the modest West Brom and QPR were too much of a close call to consider satisfactory. On the other hand the Magpies appear..

Trainers to follow in November
by Scratville on 29 Oct at 22:48
October was a fantastic month, currently above £90.00 LSP, that almost assures us another £100+ LSP year. We managed a tiny profit last November, hopefully we can improve on that this year. Plenty to go at this month and although it looks like a lot of trainers I think the number of runners will be less than last month as most of the trainers runners will be limited to a certain type eg (Chasers on the NH). NH ALAN KING (CHASERS) High profile trainer but I think it's the first time he's appeared on the blog. King has a decent record in general in November but his Chasers have a much better record. 2010 4/22 18% +£ 8.50 2011 9/36 25% ..
Breeders Cup Races - Day One , Friday 31/10/14
by The Executioner on 29 Oct at 17:16
The Breeders Cup is often referred to as the World Championships of horseracing , it's just quality through and through with a mixture of turf and dirt racing. The best of America welcomes the best from around the world over a variety of distances and despite the difficulties in trying to find a winner or two it doesn't stop us as punters doing our best to put one over on the bookmakers. Once again as expected it looks a hugely competitive two days of action with the highlight of the meeting being the Breeders Cup Classic , which by tradition is the final race run on Saturday. Friday's action sees four races , in some way acting as a starter before the main course of nine Breeders Cup races on Saturday. : *** Please note numbers 15 & 16 in the..
PREMIERSHIP STATISTICS from some different angles.
by davidg3907 on 30 Oct at 23:27
PREMIERSHIP STATISTICS from some different angles. At the commencement of the season I decided to look at some stats from slightly different angles, searching for a profitable trend slightly off the beaten track. The stats will be generic rather than team specific initially but may be segregated later in the season once more data has been collected. Apologies for the formatting, that is best described as "work in progress". BACKGROUND TO THE STATISTICS During the early part of the campaign a few unexpected results will inevitably occur. Some of those may turn out not to be shocks as the season progresses and form settles. However, a few things did come as a surprise. The first, and this can only be a statistical blip or coincidence, was that in all seven matches on the first day of the season the away team scored the first..
LEICESTER CITY v West Brom. Premiership November 1st
by davidg3907 on 30 Oct at 17:45
LEICESTER v West Brom. Premiership November 1st. With just one point from three matches in October Leicester appear to be struggling. But how closely do the facts reflect that? LEICESTER CITY v WEST BROM The four matches since the great start to the season have come either side of international breaks. Looking at those matches individually, the home draw against Burnley was a serious disappointment due to the lateness of the goal and the unusually sloppy defending of the free kick itself. The three away defeats have been at a rejuvenated Crystal Palace who were themselves on a high after winning at Everton , Newcastle who despite being winless prior to playing Leicester have won at Tottenham and Manchester City..
