College Football - Week Six Peview
by undertherobe on 01 Oct at 21:28
Week Five started well with UCLA blowing out the Sun Devils as Brett Hundley ended up starting the game. Saturday didn’t go so well with Missouri shocking the Gamecocks in Columbia and Duke playing out a defensive battle with Miami. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Week Five saw both teams on their bye week and they have remained at 2nd and 4th respectively in the AP rankings. This week, Oregon take the national stage on Thursday night as they host the 4-0 Arizona Wildcats in Eugene whilst Oklahoma travel to 3-0 TCU Horned Frogs in what is a potential banana skin in the Big 12. Week Six could well be the week when the playoff race blows wide open. 24 of the 25 teams currently in the AP rankings will..
Has To Be French Fancies For The Prix De L'Arc de Triomphe
by Randy Rann on 30 Sep at 21:28
Favourite Flat Race of The Year To Be Kept At Home.....I'm Sure!! "The Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe is not just a race.....It's a Monument!" Well some wise old sage is not wrong there and this weekend coming, sees the latest renewal of of my favourite flat race of the season.......and I'll be heading off to "Gay Paree" to experience the great race....AND the Monument. Mind you it comes at a price, as the trade off for a visit to Longchamp on Sunday, is a shopping day on the Saturday with the good lady wife, but it'll be well worth it I'm sure. For me it signals the end of the flat season and all thoughts will turn to the jumping game and all those roads that lead to The Cotswolds in March, but that's for another day. I'll be glad to..

A Blue Point of View

Aston Villa v Manchester City, Saturday 4th October (17:30ko) Preview Firstly welcome to my blog and my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. This week I'll be writing about our upcoming trip down the M6 to take on the famous Aston Villa. Aston Villa have had a very respectable start to their season, they're currently sat in 6th place in the table and have enjoyed good wins at both Anfield and the Britannia Stadium when they were expected to lose. Manager Paul Lambert has had to play mainly young players over the last few seasons and at times they've looked out of their depth. However, they've survived and some of those young players have matured and become very decent players indeed. Players like Nathan Baker, Ashley Westwood, Andreas Weimann & Fabian..
Premier League statistics - Goals based figures after 6 League matches
by tbuckley on 30 Sep at 22:58
Premier League statistics - Goals based figures after 6 League matches It's been absolutely brilliant watching all the action with seemingly lots of high tempo matches and lots of goals and so I thought that last week with 5 League games gone, was a good time to look at the goals statistics look in relation to the important betting markets such as Both Teams to Score, Average goals per game as well as Over 2.5 and 3.5 goals. I did that and hopefully those of you who read last weeks blog benefitted in some way and found it useful towards your weekends bets on the Premier League, the figures did actually work out quite well in the sense of highlighting several early season trends and did help highlight a selection of winning opportunities. I enjoyed doing it last week and with an..

Local knowledge Helping Caudal in France Another outing for the Ladies European Tour as the head to France for the Lacoste Ladies Open de France which for the third year running will be from the Chantaco GC. Winner last year was Azahara Munoz and Stacey Keating win in 2012. It’s a 72 hole event and in France so an hour ahead so will be underway around 6.30am UK Time on 2nd October.
