by jimmywomble on 22 Jul at 21:50
Put-in My Roubles on Bremner in Russia Sport often gets put in the political spotlight and this week could be no different as the European Tour heads over to Moscow and all issues around Russia and the Ukraine. (Surely the Russian President has the best golf name for a world leader, Mr Putt-in.) The M2M Russian Open has flipped between the main & Challenge Tours and this year sees the second year it is on the main tour and the fifth year running it will be at the Tseleevo Golf & Polo Club near Moscow. Winner last year was Michael Hoey who won on his debut here, but won’t defend as he injured his ankle last week in Hoylake. It will be an early start in UK terms as this will get underway around 4am Thursday the..

4 League Place Bet
by Micko70 on 17 Jul at 18:55
Now that the Football Season is only a few weeks away, it's time to look for some ante post bets. There are still some major signings to be made for this season by many teams and i have now picked out a bet that involves 4 teams and will be backed as trebles and a 4 timer. What my bet involves is picking a team from the Premiership to finish in the top 10. A team from the Championship to finish in the top 6. A team from League 1 to finish in the top 6 A team from League 2 finish in the top 7. PREMIERSHIP For my Premiership team i have picked Newcastle United, who finished 10th last season, they were sitting pretty in January until Yohan Cabaye was sold and then their season went downhill. They only managed to gain just a few more points..
Where now for England after a poor world cup
by meoldmate on 20 Jul at 11:18
The world cup has come and gone, with Germany being the world champions of football. Brazil world cup was a thrill in itself, with goals, action, mishaps and shocks, it had it all, kept every football fan glued to their television sets or computer to see all the action on a daily basis, until the closing stages, when it spreads out over a the week, until the final game. Now what, for us football fans, looking at the transfer market to see who has come and gone from each club, with the emphasis on the premier league and a glance at the other leagues. International football for England, never really climaxed and it was all over in day’s than weeks, even the girls on Soho and other red light areas would of been embarrassed of the quickness of the event that occurred. England meant..
Ludogorets (Razgrad) - the story
by botev1921 on 20 Jul at 00:49
I continue my coverage of the Bulgarian league with a short look at the only team that makes some impression in Europe and arguably the only team resembling some sort of professional sports organisation. Ludogorets (Razgrad) managed to take the country by storm in a matter of two years and had a big European break on the third. How exactly this team came to exist in a country, which outside its heroics of World Cup 1994 is not among the big football powers even of Eastern Europe might be something of a mystery for the foreign punters, but with them now even being discussed in the OLBG forums, I will try to share all I know of them as their rise coincided with the short-lived rise of my own favourite team with the only difference that the champions went even..
Premier League 2014/15 ante-post preview 1 - early views on the lower profile markets
by tbuckley on 20 Jul at 22:55
Premier League 2014/15 ante-post preview 1 - early views on the lower profile markets September 1st is the day when the summer transfer window has shut and the day when will finally know how each of the 20 Premier League squads will look making that the first proper time that we can confidently and accurately judge how teams are likely to perform this year in terms of the major outright markets. Until that day players will be coming and going to the various squads and it would only really be guesswork at best to give confident predictions now on the Outright markets and I'll wait at least until a week before the Premier League season starts to look at those markets. The good news for those of us that enjoy looking into the betting markets for football then there are loads of..
WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE HORSERACING OF THE SPORT OF KINGS.
by meoldmate on 23 Jul at 22:09
Here we have another problem coming to the fore with thoroughbreds being doped or taking a substance that is not approved. This is occurring more often than not, now. It is also becoming embarrassing as this is affecting our Royal Majesty horses and trained by a knight, Sir Michael Stoute. The problem that has been put over, is the feed has been effected with a substance that is banned in the use on horses. If this has affected one horse, then surely many others will be coming into the picture. Why is this testing done after racing and not before, we all know early enough when these horses are going to run, with the group horses we practically know with months ahead of the race they are geared for. This would stop any thinking the sport of kings is not rigged and each..
