Gameweek 17 - Liverpool vs Arsenal
by ibfm23 on 18 Dec at 07:02
One of the worse results of the season turned up to be the best gameweek for the blog. Rooney and Van Persie were both on target and as expected Manchester United were easy victors. Ironically though, for the first time since the Tottenham match in gameweek 2, I was intrigued by the Reds. Intrigued by what appeared to be a sign of life. Intrigued by Sterling who ran ragged the United defense all afternoon. Intrigued by the returning Balotelli who arguably had his best Liverpool game only to be denied by MOM De Gea. The Spanish keeper was forced into 9 saves most of which were one on one situations. I followed the match with my fellow OLBGers through the forum and whilst I was initially annoyed that Rodgers opted for a false 9 approach, I quickly swallowed back my words..
Boxing Day at Kempton - Trends for all races
by Micko70 on 15 Dec at 22:11
In this blog i am looking at all 6 races over the last 5 runnings of each race, the meeting was cancelled in 2010 due to bad weather so i am going back to 2008 for the 5th year. There are 6 races run at Kempton on Boxing day, they consist of 3 chases and 3 hurdles races and 3 of the 6 races are grade 1 races. The 3 hurdles races are a novices hurdle over 2m, a grade 1 hurdle over 2m and a handicap hurdle over 2m 5f, the 3 chases are a novices handicap chase over 2m 4f 110yds, a 3m grade 1 novices chase and a 3m grade 1 chase. I am only looking at a few trends for each race, the minimum amount being 3 for the novices hurdle, 4 trends for the other non handicap races..
Weekly Euro Football Predictor 2014 - WEEK 15
by botev1921 on 18 Dec at 22:25
After the great season we had last year and the tons of positive messages regarding our Weekly Euro Football Blog, we are back with a bigger team and even more determined to help you out with well-developed selections on the biggest European leagues and the Champions league. The idea behind the blog is to get differing opinions on the best bets for the best matches in Europe over the weekend from a panel of experts. Each tipster provides their perception of the way the game will pan out and where the value bet in the mass football markets might be. These opinions can be used in any way you wish. You may wish to take one bet where the panel agrees (signalled out as CONSENSUS PICK) and add that to existing bets you have or mix and match the various European..
Southampton vs Everton - Six Straight defeats for Saints?
by danbradley on 18 Dec at 09:53
Southampton vs Everton - Six Straight defeats for Saints? It’s been a terrible week for the Saints, as defeats against Burnley and Sheffield United meant it is now 5 losses in a row. The wheels are coming off after a brilliant start, and fans are now looking at that winning run as a distant memory. What Southampton desperately need is a morale-boosting victory, and another defeat to the Toffees this weekend would send Saints fans into Christmas with a feeling of ‘Bah, Humbug’. The defeats to Man City, Arsenal and Man United could be seen as acceptable, but only on the premise that wins against the two unfashionable clubs that followed were secured, with Everton around the corner, it is hard to look upon upcoming fixtures with much positivity from a Southampton perspective. vs Everton - The Team Things don’t get any easier for..
It's time to start backing the Blue Jackets
by Epic on 13 Dec at 11:57
Looking at the current NHL league standings, it can be said that the Columbus Blue Jackets have been one of the biggest disappointments of the season. Looks can be deceiving though. The young club, which reached the playoffs for only the second time in its history last season, has so far been ravaged by injuries and this has held them back. So far the Jackets have just 24 points from 28 games. Only the Carolina Hurricanes have a worse record in the Eastern Conference. But there is light in the tunnel. The team has gained great momentum in December, so far winning all five games. The infirmary is starting to clear and it seems like the team is ready to start climbing up from the bottom. Right now there are five players still missing - leaving out forward Nathan Horton, whose career..
College Football - Bowl Season Part One
by undertherobe on 17 Dec at 23:26
So we’re all done with another College Football regular season and despite the move to a four team playoff deciding by a committee rather than a computer, the final rankings were not without controversy as TCU were dropped from no.3 to no.6 to miss out on the playoffs altogether. As for the results from this blog, since Week Eight it’s been a winning week in all but one week as I’ve gone 15-8 over that span. Including the National Championship game, there are 39 Bowl games this year so plenty of opportunities to build on a strong second half of the season and finish the year in profit as overall on the year I’ve gone 21-22 with one push. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Oklahoma went 0-3 against Top..
BREAKING BAD(HABITS) - WALTER WHITE AND ARSENE WENGER
by pompeybuster12 on 12 Dec at 22:11
BREAKING BAD(HABITS)-WALTER WHITE AND ARSENE WENGER "You clearly don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, and you think that of me? No! I am the one who knocks!" Walter White. “When you look at people who are successful, you will find that they aren't the people who are motivated, but have consistency in their motivation.” Arsene Wenger. THE LONG WALK As Arsene Wenger left the train station at Stoke under a torrent of abuse, he must have stopped, looked around and wondered where it had all gone wrong. An empire seemingly collapsing around him. It had once been so different for the Frenchman, he was the man who revolutionised Arsenal and the English game and yet when he landed on our shores he was..
