Goal Difference, does it matter?
by bobslay13 on 19 Dec at 00:02
Many would argue that goal difference (GD) is just a statistic and at the end of the day the position in the league table is all that matters. A lot of emphasis is put on the wins and losses of recent form but I believe that goal difference can go a long way to showing a side’s potential. I always look at GD when predicting 1X2 results. A team with a good goal difference that has not necessarily got the results to show for it is probably an indication that the team has been unlucky. As we know, football is a very unpredictable sport and anything can happen, teams can dominate games and lose to one shot on target from their weaker opposition. Usually the tide turns on sides with bad luck and they get their rewards in the long..
Liverpool v Arsenal - Goals Over 2/1
by nors on 17 Dec at 14:50
Last season this match saw a rout by Liverpool 5-1 as Arsenal were blown away by the speed and intensity of Brendan Rodgers title chasers. Prior to this Arsenal had an OK record at Anfield having avoided defeat in their last 5 meetings. In 2014/15 we have a different Liverpool to take on, they have had a terrible run of results and unless they turn it around quickly then any hope of a top 4 finish will disappear. However wounded animals are dangerous and in Liverpool we have such an animal. So we have a home team that need to win but who are lacking in confidence and good recent results. Liverpool also have goalkeeper issues having dropped Mignolet for the reserve keeper Brad Jones. Jones to me does not have the presence of a Premiership keeper and this lack..
WEST HAM UNITED V Leicester City

West Ham United v Leicester 20-12-2014. 15.00. The Boleyn. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out Sunderland 1-1 West Ham The Game West Ham arrived in confidence after coming from behind to defeat Swansea 3-1 on the previous Sunday, to face a Sunderland side who were looking like draw specialists.... From the off, both sides played with a high tempo with end to end stuff but generally it was the visitors who had the edge as the possession they had was in Sunderland's half and Carroll had a near post header go wide. Sunderland were looking dangerous on the counter attacks as they did it with pace and had the option to go direct and it was this, that lead to the opening goal.....Adam Johnson squared up to Tomkin's on the edge of the area and tried to go down the side, but the Hammers defender..

Africa Cup of Nations - Equatorial Guinea - 2015 #ACN ACN South Africa 2013 - Read It Here! It will remain to be seen how much of a success this year’s Africa Cup of Nations will be after a very troubled run in. Morocco who were due to be hosting the tournament pulled out in November due to the threat of the Ebola virus that swept West Africa. Equatorial Guinea stepped in as hosts at the last moment and were allowed back in the tournament even though they had been previously banished due to fielding an ineligible player. The Tournament still runs from 17th January to 8th February 2015. Group C looks to be the ‘Group of Death’ with four very strong teams in there. Cameroon, Tunisia and Senegal all looked good in qualifying. As Senegal are in Group C, they may..
