  • A Blue Point of View

    RACHACE on 01 Oct at 15:21

    Manchester City v Newcastle United, Saturday 3rd October (15:00 ko) Firstly, welcome to my blog, my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. Our 8th game see's us host the struggling and winless Newcastle United at the Etihad Stadium. The Magpies have had a very tough start to the season which has seen early season optimism dampen somewhat. No win in any of their opening 7 fixtures, losing 4 and drawing 3. However, they did play well for the majority of their last game against Premier League champions Chelsea but after having led the game 2-0, they unfortunately failed to hold on and the game ended 2-2. Still, before the game they'd have taken the point so they can still take the positives from what was a much improved performance to the ones they'd put…

  • NFL: International Series Trends

    undertherobe on 01 Oct at 22:33

    This weekend sees the International Series take centre stage once more in the NFL as Wembley hosts a regular season game for the 9th straight season. Last year was another milestone for the NFL in London as they hosted three games for the first time and the first early morning kick off in the States. It was so successful that all three matches in 2015 will kick off at 9.30am Eastern time and always looking to improve year on year, the NFL have managed to get their first Divisional matchup with an All AFC East clash between the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets, whilst later in the year, they will host games on back to back weeks for the first time which will be a real test for the attendance which has topped 83,000 on nine of eleven occasions. So with eight…

  • Just one selection let me down last week. Will this week bring more luck?

    undertherobe on 01 Oct at 06:30

    After laying an egg the previous week, it was nice to get back to winning ways last week although for the second time this season, the accumulator fell one win short as the exertions of a penalty shoot out at Anfield cost Carlisle in a 1-0 home defeat to bottom club Newport. This is the last week before the International break so before a truncated accumulator next week, it’s another shot at trying to land the second five from five of the season....... Running Totals Singles: 14/23 (60.87% strike rate), 5.20 pts profit (22.61% roi) Accumulators: 1/5 (20.00% strike rate), 12.40 pts profit (248% roi) A quick recap of the rules I’ve set myself for this experiment, Rule One No odds are out of range. We hear stories all the time of a short priced favourite scuppering a big acca but for someone & a lot…

    THE FACE OF RABIES. “I would like to introduce you to the face of rabies” MICHAEL SCOTT (THE OFFICE US) (Michael then turns around a board with a picture of Meredith Palmer.) “How many of you know somebody who has been afflicted with rabies?” The whole of the staff raise their hands in acknowledgement. Michael then states “You see, too many to count” and takes this as proof of the prominence of rabies in the US today. AN AMERICAN WORKPLACE. If you have never had the pleasure of watching THE OFFICE U.S., stop reading now, get a Netflix subscription and lock yourself in a bunker for a month, it is undeniably one of the funniest, intelligent and heartfelt pieces of television ever made, it bucks all of the trends associated with American comedy, dealing self delusion and self deprecation, while managing to charm you at the same time,…

  • College Football Week Five: Another big test for Notre Dame in prime time

    undertherobe on 01 Oct at 19:22

    Whilst the Big Ten has the top two teams in the country in Ohio State and Michigan State, the Pac-12 looks to be getting stronger and stronger whilst the SEC has many questions to answer. It promises to be another exciting week in College Football as the conference schedules start to ramp up. This week’s blog takes a look at another non Power Five team to watch, the underdog of the week and the big prime time matchup as Clemson host Notre Dame.... The Top Three In my season preview, I concentrated on the top three ranked teams, so how did they get on in week four? Ohio State Buckeyes (1) In reality, Western Michigan were never going to be much of a test for the Buckeyes and so it turned out as Ohio State ran out 38-12 winners. They’ve arrived at the end…

  • The NFL Underdog Blog - Week 4

    Jim Brown on 02 Oct at 04:04

    Last week Things were looking promising last Sunday. Down just five points and driving steadily downfield, the Lions were inside the Denver half with just four minutes left - and Stafford threw an interception. That was that. But fair credit to Denver's defense. For the third game in a row it comes up with a crucial play. How long can that last? Read on... Performance on the week 0 from 1, -1.0 pt Performance on the season 2 from 6, -0.20 pts This week There's several matches that look worthy of at least consideration: Jaguars at the Colts, Giants at the Bills, Redskins hosting Philly, 49ers at home to the Packers, the Vikings visiting Denver, and the Bears welcoming the surprising Raiders. The 49ers looked very good in week one but in hindsight that has the look of a fluke performance. They've lost…
