NFL - Why a London franchise won't work
by undertherobe on 14 Aug at 14:41
The NFL is on the rise. Just a few weeks ago, the Green Bay Packers released their accounts which indicated that the 32 teams split approximately $6 billion in revenue for last season and the NFL’s quest for global dominance seems to be working. The Superbowl is already one of the most watched individual sporting event in the World whilst a 30 second advertisement during the commercials will set companies back approximately $3.5 million (figures from Superbowl 2012). As part of its attempts to grow the game internationally, the NFL has hosted an International Series each year during the regular season since 2007. Although it's called the International Series, Wembley in London has been the only venue so far. What started off as one game per year grew to two games in 2013 and 2014 will see three regular season games..
My Top 10 midweek football picks
by tbuckley on 17 Aug at 19:46
My Top 10 midweek football picks After a very busy summer writing and punting on the World Cup followed by a few weeks of intensive ante-post market studying, I took my own much needed pre-season break from writing, betting and computers to re-charge my batteries ready for the long season ahead. The good news is the week away with my family and away from computers has freshened me up completely and now I'm raring to go to get stuck into all the football action and betting now the domestic season has started. My strategy for the first few weeks and months of the season is mainly watch to see how all the teams and players are settling down and betting wise to take things very cautiously in terms of staking and to only have small stakes bets on those teams who have..
AC Milan is heading towards a slow rebuild
by Epic on 18 Aug at 21:41
Manchester United and AC Milan were two European powerhouses which had very disappointing seasons. With Louis van Gaal in charge and an impressive pre-season behind them, it seems like the Red Devils are ready to return to the top in the new season. With Milan the story looks to be very different. After finishing 8th in the Serie A last term, the new season doesn't promise to be much better. Paying for past mistakes You could say Milan are a victim of their own success. For years they relied on their world famous medical facility MilanLab to prolong the career of many key members of the team. Paolo Maldini, Cafu, Clarence Seedorf, Massimo Ambrosini and the list of players, which seemed to get better with each year even in their thirties, just goes on. Milan didn't have much success in their local..
The Ebor Handicap Trends
by Micko70 on 17 Aug at 21:14
The Ebor Handicap is widely regarded as one of the biggest Flat handicaps during the season, it is run at the York 4 day Ebor meeting in August. The race is run over 1m 6f and has been won by some good horses in the past, including Purple Moon (2007), Sergeant Cecil (2005), Quick Ransom (1992), Further Flight (1990) & Sea Pigeon (1979). The winner this year will collect over £160,000, a fantastic prize for a flat race. I am looking at the last 10 years of the race to see if any horses stand out by looking at the trends of those 10 winners. The Trends i am looking at are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Season Runs, Season Wins, Distance, Grade & Field Size There are still 76 horses left in the race, they are - 1-7088 Camborne(7) 6..
La Liga 2014/2015
by Micko70 on 15 Aug at 18:22
Not many people outside of Spain would have thought that neither Barcelona nor Real Madrid would have won the La Liga title last season. Atletico Madrid pipped them both to it by grabbing an away point at Barcelona on the final day of the season. Only 3 points seperated the teams at the end of the season, Atletico finished on 90, with Barcelona & Real sitting behind on 87 points. All 3 teams drew the same amount of games (6), the only difference between the sides was 1 single win, Atletico won 28 matches whilst the other 2 both won 27. Atletico's great strength was in their defence, they only conceded 26 goals, compared to Barcelona's 33 and Real's 38 but they lacked in attack, they only scored 77 goals, which was still by far the 3rd best attack in the league, but fell..
