Leicester v Man Utd - a retrospective look
by davidg3907 on 22 Sep at 12:08
I have been trying to analyse the match from a neutral point of view and a few things emerge. The footballing aspects will have been aired in multitudinous column inches so I have concentrated on other issues and statistics. Apart from Blackett's ridiculous challenge that left the ref with absolutely no option but to award a penalty to Leicester and a red card to the culprit, only two cards were deemed necessary. One of those was for Rooney crying over the award of THIS penalty rather than simply being upset about the first. One may be forgiven for thinking that Manchester United have NEVER been the beneficiary of a dubious penalty award. The other was for a rather careless tackle by De Laet, certainly nothing evil. In what was one of the highest tempo matches seen for a long time that would..

2014 Betfred Cambridgeshire Handicap Stats And Pointers , Saturday 27/9/14
by The Executioner on 18 Sep at 23:03
The Cambridgeshire was first run in 1839, the same year as The Cesarewitch was established and the races soon became known as the Autumn Double. It takes place on the Rowley Mile course over a straight nine furlongs trip, and it takes some getting, often a horse that has won over slightly further can run well rather than the more speedier types. During the race’s history there has six two time winners, Hackler’s Pride ( 1903/1904 ) , Christmas Daisy ( 1909/1910 ) , Sterope ( 1948/1949 ) , Prince De Galles ( 1969/1970 ) , Baronet ( 1978/1980 ) and most recently Rambo’s Hall ( 1989/1992 ). As with some of the other major handicaps of the season there has been an increase in prizemoney which has also seen an increase in the quality of entries, and often..

There are currently 119 horses entered for the race AGE 8 of the last 10 winners were aged 3, 4 or..
Liverpool - Ludogorets Preview - The Bulgarian Perspective
by botev1921 on 15 Sep at 22:17
It is no shock to me that English fans have absolutely no idea who Ludogorets are and the Bulgarian champions are one of those very interesting nobodies you see in the Champions league every once in a while, but in the context of the very questionable Liverpool performances lately, it is worth looking at the Ludogorets perspective and measure their chances of getting some sort of result on Anfield. If you are interested in a first hand info on Ludogorets, feel free to check my pre-season team preview Ludogorets (Razgrad) - The Story as I guarantee you will find all you need to know about them from start to finish. Ludogorets under their new manager - clash of two cultures To be brutally honest, you need to have seen Ludogorets play in more than one or two games in order to have..
