Norwich City V's Crystal Palace - 8th August 3pm KO
by Ralfie1982 on 30 Jul at 20:35
Norwich v Crystal Palace Delighted to be asked to give my view on CPFC matches as they come up. I will try to be factual and matter of fact as best I can but I make no apologies if occasionally my heart will rule my head. So here is my first one, please let me know what you think and if you want to know anything else. Some History / Match Stats Under 2.5 goals in last 4 meeting of the two clubs. Norwich have won 10 of the 23 times they have met at Carrow Road 7 Draws and 6 losses make up the remainder. Dont take pre-season to seriously CPFC (and I think NCFC) have put mixed teams out. Palace conceded plenty from set pieces under Pardew - NCFC have plenty of big forwards (and CB's) such as Hooper,..
Everton - "Six Pointers" Aren't Just For Relegation Candidates
by garethp1981 on 02 Aug at 18:05
In my series of blogs reviewing the 2014-15 season for each team in the league I have so far covered twelve teams, which is not particularly good going given that there is now less than a week to go until the new season. I plan to cover the remaining eight teams this week, probably in three separate blogs including this one. That said I am trying to give as much attention to teams as needed to fit in all my thoughts, I wrote one blog just about Manchester United, and with Everton I am going to do the same because I feel I have a lot to say about them. The other blogs will be up during the week, hopefully in enough time for people to read them before the season, and leaving me the free to write a preview..
West Ham United Pre-Season
by redhammer on 02 Aug at 18:37
Ins and Outs Well the first person to go at Upton Park in the summer was Sam Allardyce, and from majority of Hammers. YAS!! The football in the first 6 months was unreal, pace, creativity, a winning and entertaining brand of football. But as soon as Nolan and Carroll was fit, Downing, arguably the best player in that team, was moved to accommodate his skipper and Sakho and Valencia were rotated and pushed wider to allow Big Andy the central role. And the football was dire. Long ball after long ball and zero threat. Opposition keepers could have had a cup of tea at some stages. When were were winning it was 'park the bus' tactics. The board didn't leave anyone guessing and within minutes off the final whistle on the last game, Hammers fans celebrated. In came Slaven Bilic, not everyone's..
Champions League Qualifying Rounds - Rising & Falling Teams
by botev1921 on 01 Aug at 00:11
While the Champions league is still at an early stage, I personally consider those early rounds much more interesting than the actual group stage. For one, the teams involved are much more exotic and it is really rare to have the opportunity to watch them at any other time of the year and if that isn’t enough, there are more balanced encounters than those you would normally watch when the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern have to deal with the formality of a group stage. In this blog of mine, I will take a quick look at how things have gone in the early rounds, the first legs of the 3rd Qualifying Round more specifically and what conclusions we can draw about the different European countries and the quality of their leagues from the performances of their champions..

The week ahead on the horse racing front
by meoldmate on 02 Aug at 19:25
AFTER THE LORD MAYOR’S SHOW As we would say, after the epics of Royal Ascot at the end of June and a short break until we had Glorious Goodwood, where do the racing fraternity head to now. Looking at the week ahead, nothing really comes shouting out at you, for excitement of so called big races, classic races that is. Possibly, if living in the areas where racing is going to take place, a chance for racing fans to venture without hurting the pocket in travelling cost. Monday Six meetings we have on show, four from these shores and two from Ireland Carlisle, going Soft, starts at 5.45 - 8.45 This is lady jockey night, with all six races. One of the top jockettes to be here is Hayley Turner Nottingham, going Good, starts at 2.00 - 5.00 normal day at this meeting with the..
