Newcastle And West Ham - Be Careful What You Wish For
by garethp1981 on 27 Jul at 19:10
In the last part of my football blog reviewing the 2014-15 season I wrote about three teams who had bad starts to the season and then managed to turn things around. In this blog I will be writing about teams who did the opposite, a reasonably good start followed by a poor second half of the season. One example of this is Newcastle United who managed to stay in the Premier League in the end with 39 points; but this total does not tell the full story of the season. Alan Pardew left the club officially on the 2nd of January, so the team had played 20 of their 38 games. He left them on 27 points which most people would agree is not fantastic but is far from relegation form (Hull and QPR both had 19 points at this..
Who'll win the 2015/16 Skybet League One?
by bobslay13 on 27 Jul at 20:48
Who’ll win the 2015/16 Skybet League One? 2 weeks to go until the first round of league fixtures in the 2015/16 season get underway; a good time to start trying to predict who’s going to win the divisions of the Football League. Many teams are still pretty under-staffed but most are starting to take shape and have the spine of their side sorted so I think we can make pretty logical predictions now. I’ll be looking at League Two in the next week or so but this episode I’m focusing on League One. League One So, who are the main competitors? I’m not going to look at every side in the league. Nor am I looking at who might clinch promotion because that means a chunky review of at least half the division; rather I’m going to look at a handful of teams..
Thoughts on the Premiership Title
by meoldmate on 24 Jul at 12:14
THE PREMIERSHIP FOOTBALL LEAGUE Possibly the best league in the world, where many clubs can be found fighting out the finish for the title. This Premiership League can be split into three tiers, as we all know what team could finish where in being three places either way of being close. Splitting the league into three tiers, I will use television programmes to place the teams under, which could underline their status. DALLAS Arsenal Chelsea Liverpool Manchester City Manchester United Tottenham Hotspurs. DALTON ABBEY Crystal Palace Everton Southampton Stoke City Swansea West Bromwich Albion West Ham United HOME AND AWAY Aston Villa Bournemouth Leicester City Newcastle United Norwich Sunderland Watford The reason for calling the first group Dallas, the money teams, they have floating accounts that other enterprising teams or companies dream of. The second group, are the clubs that have both upper and lower class players, just like the standards of this programme with “My lord” and “Mr”. The last group, called “home and Away”,..
Champions & Europa League 3rd Qualifying Round
by undertherobe on 27 Jul at 22:48
this summer, I’ve written a couple of blogs previewing the first and second qualifying rounds of the Champion League and Europa League with the idea of looking at those teams making their first competitive appearance of the season. We’re now at the third qualifying round of European Competition and with the start of the major European Leagues just around the corner, this will be the last instalment of these blogs until next season. I believe that there is plenty of money to be made from these early season matchups if you know where to look and the first two blogs have shown some positive results.... Results so far Europa League 1st Qualifying Round, 1st Leg Atlantas +1.00 @ 10/11 vs Beroe Stara Zagora : Atlantas 0-2 Beroe Stara Zagora Jelgava +1.50 @ 13/14 vs Litex Lovech : Jelgava 1-1 Litex Lovech NSI Runavik +1.25 @ 4/5..

Pre-season 2015/16 - The Liverpool Perspective; two weeks to go
by ibfm23 on 26 Jul at 12:00
Once again the Reds were amongst the most active clubs during the summer transfer window. Last year, we all had the ill feeling that the failure to replace Suarez would have a detrimental effect, and it did indeed. This time around though, Rodgers has done a better job at slotting in signings where required. Last time out, Liverpool conceded 48 goals in 38 matches, 10 or more goals short of the top four’s defensive record. This notwithstanding, the Reds kept 14 clean sheets, better than Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United. Yet, when things went wrong they went horribly wrong and Liverpool conceded more than 2 goals on 7 occasions which all ended in defeats. In comparison, the top four jointly conceded more than 2 goals 7 times! When things got hard, the Reds were unable to keep it together and this..
The Southampton Perspective - Saints Premier League Preview 15/16
by danbradley on 26 Jul at 11:27
The new season is near and excitement is building ahead of another Premier League campaign. Fans up and down the country will be wondering how their sides will get on after a long summer with little in the way of footballing action. While there will be plenty of attention on the fight at the top and whether a rejuvenated Man Utd and an Anglicised Man City can compete with Chelsea at the top, or whether Arsenal can continue their upward trajectory and mount a title challenge. At the bottom, Bournemouth, Watford and Norwich will be hoping to survive a difficult first season in the top flight, while others who struggled through last season will be hoping to avoid a similarly turbulent year. My focus here is on my team, Southampton, and how we will fare in an exciting year for..
