The Southampton Perspective - Saints Premier League Preview 15/16
by danbradley on 26 Jul at 11:27
The new season is near and excitement is building ahead of another Premier League campaign. Fans up and down the country will be wondering how their sides will get on after a long summer with little in the way of footballing action. While there will be plenty of attention on the fight at the top and whether a rejuvenated Man Utd and an Anglicised Man City can compete with Chelsea at the top, or whether Arsenal can continue their upward trajectory and mount a title challenge. At the bottom, Bournemouth, Watford and Norwich will be hoping to survive a difficult first season in the top flight, while others who struggled through last season will be hoping to avoid a similarly turbulent year. My focus here is on my team, Southampton, and how we will fare in an exciting year for..
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..
Premiership Transfer Window Losers
by botev1921 on 27 Jul at 16:33
After talking about the Premiership Transfer Window winners I decided to come back to the losers category I was considering and quickly go over the teams and players I consider to have done worse than expected or to have done certain moves that simply lack coherence and logic. While obviously for a certain transfer to be considered a failure one would need to monitor how things go for at least a couple of months, there were still those occasional pieces of business that just made very little sense in the context of what the teams/players needed to go one step further in their development. Feel free to add comments even if you disagree completely with some of my observations and we will be able to compare points of view come May 2016 and see who got it right or wrong...
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..
Norwich City V's Crystal Palace - 8th August 3pm KO
by Ralfie1982 on 30 Jul at 20:35
Norwich v Crystal Palace Delighted to be asked to give my view on CPFC matches as they come up. I will try to be factual and matter of fact as best I can but I make no apologies if occasionally my heart will rule my head. So here is my first one, please let me know what you think and if you want to know anything else. Some History / Match Stats Under 2.5 goals in last 4 meeting of the two clubs. Norwich have won 10 of the 23 times they have met at Carrow Road 7 Draws and 6 losses make up the remainder. Dont take pre-season to seriously CPFC (and I think NCFC) have put mixed teams out. Palace conceded plenty from set pieces under Pardew - NCFC have plenty of big forwards (and CB's) such as Hooper,..

Champions & Europa League 3rd Qualifying Round
by undertherobe on 27 Jul at 22:48
this summer, I’ve written a couple of blogs previewing the first and second qualifying rounds of the Champion League and Europa League with the idea of looking at those teams making their first competitive appearance of the season. We’re now at the third qualifying round of European Competition and with the start of the major European Leagues just around the corner, this will be the last instalment of these blogs until next season. I believe that there is plenty of money to be made from these early season matchups if you know where to look and the first two blogs have shown some positive results.... Results so far Europa League 1st Qualifying Round, 1st Leg Atlantas +1.00 @ 10/11 vs Beroe Stara Zagora : Atlantas 0-2 Beroe Stara Zagora Jelgava +1.50 @ 13/14 vs Litex Lovech : Jelgava 1-1 Litex Lovech NSI Runavik +1.25 @ 4/5..
