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..
Laying Experiment - Analysis
by garethp1981 on 15 Dec at 20:31
One problem I have here is that I do not have details of all the market prices at various stages on Betfair, I only recorded the prices for the horses that I layed. What I do have are the SPs according to the website Sporting Life. The prices of the horses on Betfair are of course not the same as this, so I can’t compare apples with oranges. But I do think that it is worthwhile when comparing Sporting Life SPs for different horses. If I was doing the experiment again, then I would have recorded the activity on a much greater number of races, but unfortunately this thought has only come to me as I started to analyse the results. I do think that the SPs as given by the website will provide some useful information, but it will..
It's time to start backing the Blue Jackets
by Epic on 13 Dec at 11:57
Looking at the current NHL league standings, it can be said that the Columbus Blue Jackets have been one of the biggest disappointments of the season. Looks can be deceiving though. The young club, which reached the playoffs for only the second time in its history last season, has so far been ravaged by injuries and this has held them back. So far the Jackets have just 24 points from 28 games. Only the Carolina Hurricanes have a worse record in the Eastern Conference. But there is light in the tunnel. The team has gained great momentum in December, so far winning all five games. The infirmary is starting to clear and it seems like the team is ready to start climbing up from the bottom. Right now there are five players still missing - leaving out forward Nathan Horton, whose career..

by tbuckley on 15 Dec at 16:34
Racing at Meydan, Dubai - Results, Review and Preview As I've said before on my blogs covering Meydan, I'm a huge fan of the racing from Meydan and have been since 2010, I follow it with a passion, love watching it, punting on it and I always greatly look forward to the Meydan racing season starting. This week sees the 4th week of the new racing season on the dirt at Meydan and as the weeks go by I'll do my best to review the action and update with news, views and horses/trainers to follow, for those interested my last Meydan blog covered why I'm so taken by Meydan. Meydan definitely represents a real punting challenge, most definitely will be the case this year with the switch back to dirt from Tapeta, but it's a challenge well worth taking in my opinion..

WHAT HAVE THE ROMANS EVER DONE FOR US ??
by pompeybuster12 on 16 Dec at 20:31
WHAT HAVE THE ROMANS EVER DONE FOR US ?? “All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?” REG OF THE PEOPLES FRONT OF JUDEA. (THE LIFE OF BRIAN) FINEFORM, ONLY ON A WEDNESDAY. I want to spin a yarn on systems; primarily I want to put them in perspective. The basic premise of a system is back fitting results into a neatly arranged pattern that shows profit, the premise being that what has passed before will play out in the future. Inevitably the system starts to fail, so the Reg moment from the life of Brian plays out. The system maker needs to start back fitting again to stay in profit so the game begins………….. Hmmm if we back the top rated system picks..
