The Southampton Perspective: Saints Feeling Positive ahead of West Brom Clash
by danbradley on 21 Aug at 16:24
The Southampton Perspective: Saints Feeling Positive ahead of West Brom Clash There were plenty of people writing Southampton off before the start of the season, and that was completely understandable considering the high profile departures of the summer with the manager and several key players leaving the club. Those that were touting relegation as a possibility for the club were silenced somewhat by the positive performance and Championship hopefuls Liverpool. Koeman’s own reaction to the suggestions suggest the attitude of the club is still the same despite the change in furniture at St Marys, with the Dutchman scoffing at the suggestion that many people were putting money on the Saints to go down, insisting that those who take on such a bet wouldn’t be collecting come May. It’s got to a point now where the number of arrivals is similar to the..
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..
NHL: 5 teams to look out for in the new season
by Epic on 21 Aug at 16:43
The new NHL season is just a month and a half away. It promises to be as exciting as ever as alongside the "old suspects" like current Stanley Cup holders Los Angeles Kings, 2013 champs Chicago Blackhawks and Eastern powerhouses Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins, we are bound to have a number of ambitious sides dreaming of reaching the cup final themselves. Here are my thoughts on five sides aiming high in the upcoming season: Tampa Bay Lightning The Bruins and the Penguins were the only two sides which got the better of Lightning during the regular season this year in the Eastern Conference. It seemed like Lightning were ready to make noise in the playoffs as well, but that was ruined by an injury to nr. 1 goalie Ben Bishop. The Bolts ended up crashing out with no wins in the..

A Blue Point of View
by RACHACE on 21 Aug at 09:55
Manchester City v Liverpool Monday 25th August Preview Firstly welcome to my blog and my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. We're only 1 week into the new Barclays Premier League season and we've already got one of the mouth watering clashes as last seasons champions take on last seasons runner up. This fixture is always one I look forward to, Liverpool fans attend in their numbers and are amongst the most vocal and passionate around. It's usually a very good game to watch for the neutral also and I expect this one to be no different. Last season this fixture produced some very good counter attacking football, Liverpool were the best footballing side that visited the Etihad last season. That Boxing Day, Liverpool were top of the league at Christmas..
