Champions League Qualifying Rounds - Rising & Falling Teams
by botev1921 on 01 Aug at 00:11
While the Champions league is still at an early stage, I personally consider those early rounds much more interesting than the actual group stage. For one, the teams involved are much more exotic and it is really rare to have the opportunity to watch them at any other time of the year and if that isn’t enough, there are more balanced encounters than those you would normally watch when the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern have to deal with the formality of a group stage. In this blog of mine, I will take a quick look at how things have gone in the early rounds, the first legs of the 3rd Qualifying Round more specifically and what conclusions we can draw about the different European countries and the quality of their leagues from the performances of their champions..
MLB Trade Deadline Winners & Losers
by undertherobe on 01 Aug at 18:30
With the MLB trade deadline coming last night, I wanted to take a look at a couple of teams who excelled over the past week or so and have thrown themselves into the mix for a run at the postseason whilst also looking at a couple of teams who have made moves that appear to signal their intentions to regroup and come back for 2016. Winners Toronto Blue Jays By far the biggest winners at this deadline were the Blue Jays. Throughout the 2015 season, their offense has been leading the way and they currently average 5.29 runs per game. But it's their pitching that has let them down (they rank in the bottom half of the major pitching categories) and led to them trailing the New York Yankees by six games in the AL East. The acquisition of David Price from the Detroit..
Premier League Week 1 Money Maker or Coupon Buster
by Ralfie1982 on 02 Aug at 20:40
Premier League Week 1 Every year for as many years as I can remember the 1st week of the premier league and other leagues for that matter have ripped my coupon to pieces every which way you look, but having been a member of OLBG for just over 12 months and watch some real experts show some decent tipping I am determined to try and put that to good use. Below I have listed all the Premier League games for week 1 and then where I think there might be any signs of a safer bet. The Fixture List Man Utd v Tottenham 12:45 Bournemouth v Aston Villa 15:00 Everton v Watford ..

Manchester City Pre Season Review Firstly welcome to my 1st blog of the 2015/16 season, I really can't wait for the new season to start as I'm sure many other can't either.

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,..
