Chelsea v Tottenham (Capital One Cup Final)
by mercer on 25 Feb at 10:36
CHELSEA v TOTTENHAM I am looking at the big game the weekend which is the Capital One Cup Final, between Premier League leaders Chelsea & 7th placed Tottenham. Chelsea have won this competition three times since 1998, beating Middlesbrough 2-0, Liverpool 3-2 & Arsenal 2-1. Three of the last four finals Chelsea have played in this competition have gone to extra time & will they need that here ?. Tottenham have had mixed emotion's the last two final's they have competed in this competition, losing to Manchester United on penalties back in 2009 & beat the side they face here Chelsea 2-1 back in 2008. Tottenham also have won two of their last four finals in this competition. Anthony Taylor is in charge of the match & these are his card stats from domestic cup matches the last 5 years including this..
Premier League Value - The Alternative League Table
by garethp1981 on 22 Feb at 15:29
As someone who enjoys betting on football, I am always looking for value; that is a bet where the odds reflect a lower chance of winning than the actual probability of the outcome I am betting on. It is a belief I have had for some time that these bets exist regularly in football for various reasons which I explain in my blog here. I have also written a couple of blogs where I produced an alternative league table, designed to spot the teams that are consistently overpriced. The table is based not on 3 points for a win, but rather on the LSP that a punter would make if they had bet on the team winning. So for example if I bet on a team at 4/1 and they win, then my LSP is 3, if they are priced..

by Micko70 on 26 Feb at 22:56

The Flyers are flying under the radar
by Epic on 23 Feb at 20:52
As Americans celebrated Hockey Day yesterday, the Philadelphia Flyers cheered after finishing two tough back to back games with a perfect record. They beat the Nashville Predators on Saturday 3-2 with a shootout and then got the better of the Washington Capitals with a 3-2 regulation time win. Two victories against teams, which we will almost certainly see competing in the Stanley Cup playoffs this Spring, has brought the Flyers close to their own playoff spot. The team, which was off pace by 13 points not long ago, is now just four points away from sneaking into the playoff spots in the Eastern Conference. The Flyers started 2015 with a poor run. Having picked up just a point from the last three matches of the previous year, they managed six points from eight matches, picking up four of them after regulation..
Premier League in a Minute - A Quick Preview of All the Weekend Games (28th Feb)
by danbradley on 26 Feb at 12:27
Premier League in a Minute - A Quick Preview of All the Weekend Games There are only eight games in the Premier League this weekend as the League Cup final takes centre stage at Wembley on Sunday. Other sides will be looking to take advantage of the fact that Chelsea, Tottenham and their original opponents for this weekend - QPR and Leicester, will not be playing this week, meaning good ground can be made in the race for the title, the Champions League places and in the race to avoid the drop. On Saturday we have six games, starting with a lunchtime London derby between West Ham and Crystal Palace. Both sides sit in almost strange positions in the table at this stage of the season, with West Ham comfortable in 8th position, but with little chance of claiming a European..
West Ham v Crystal Palace
by redhammer on 24 Feb at 18:22
West Ham United v Crystal Palace 28-02-2015. 12.45. The Boleyn. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out The Game Tottenham 2-2 West Ham A strong live up was announced as Nolan found himself benched as Kouyate moved back into midfield as Reid returned to defence. Spurs started brightly but were restricted to long range efforts and Bentaleb went close. Rose and Kane went close again fro the home side but bar that Adrian only had long range efforts to deal with. The hammers restricted Spurs and started to impose themselves into the game and took the lead when Cresswell played in another lovely cross and found Kouyate between defenders and he headed home. Lloris had to be alert from another cross as Valencia got on the end of it but could only find Hugo's face. The hammers pressed for a second and Spurs went in..
