A Blue Point of View

Aston Villa v Manchester City, Saturday 4th October (17:30ko) Preview Firstly welcome to my blog and my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. This week I'll be writing about our upcoming trip down the M6 to take on the famous Aston Villa. Aston Villa have had a very respectable start to their season, they're currently sat in 6th place in the table and have enjoyed good wins at both Anfield and the Britannia Stadium when they were expected to lose. Manager Paul Lambert has had to play mainly young players over the last few seasons and at times they've looked out of their depth. However, they've survived and some of those young players have matured and become very decent players indeed. Players like Nathan Baker, Ashley Westwood, Andreas Weimann & Fabian..
Does Kelly have the answer?
by garethp1981 on 28 Sep at 16:28
In my last two blogs I have asked the question what is the right amount to bet on any given bet. In my first blog in the series I posed the question and discussed in more detail exactly what I meant by the title, “Do you lose too often?”. I came to the conclusion that it was only possible to answer this question if the average odds of winning bets was known. If these were sufficient to cover losing bets and then to make a profit in the long run, then a bettor is making value bets. Once we know that this is the case, then we need to find a staking level which will mean that the long term winning strategy of value betting, is not undone by a short term spell of bad luck. As part of..

Trainers to follow in October
by Scratville on 01 Oct at 02:52
September was a fantastic month with 7 of our 12 trainers showing a profit for a £53.00 LSP. We are still down for the year after a terrible summer but still well up since the start of the blog. Plenty to go at this month but I don't think they'll be the volume of runners of last month. FLAT TURF ROGER CHARLTON (2YO'S) Wiltshire trainer who has had a quiet year, usually sends out his stronger 2yo's late on in the season. 2010 1/3 8% (£ 7.00) 2011 6/23 26% +£31.50 2012 3/12 25% +£19.00 2013 3/12 25% +£..

Local knowledge Helping Caudal in France Another outing for the Ladies European Tour as the head to France for the Lacoste Ladies Open de France which for the third year running will be from the Chantaco GC. Winner last year was Azahara Munoz and Stacey Keating win in 2012. It’s a 72 hole event and in France so an hour ahead so will be underway around 6.30am UK Time on 2nd October. The Course & Past Winners I say the Chantaco GC is on the Atlantic Coast, well it is a mile or two inland with the town of St Jean de Luz in between it and the ocean. The town just 10 miles north of the French-Spanish border. Set in the foothills of the Pyrenees it winds it’s way through the forest next to the Nivelle River, a..
College Football - Week Six Peview
by undertherobe on 01 Oct at 21:28
Week Five started well with UCLA blowing out the Sun Devils as Brett Hundley ended up starting the game. Saturday didn’t go so well with Missouri shocking the Gamecocks in Columbia and Duke playing out a defensive battle with Miami. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Week Five saw both teams on their bye week and they have remained at 2nd and 4th respectively in the AP rankings. This week, Oregon take the national stage on Thursday night as they host the 4-0 Arizona Wildcats in Eugene whilst Oklahoma travel to 3-0 TCU Horned Frogs in what is a potential banana skin in the Big 12. Week Six could well be the week when the playoff race blows wide open. 24 of the 25 teams currently in the AP rankings will..
The Draw Strategy - early season observations
by botev1921 on 26 Sep at 14:45
I doubt there are many punters who do not like draws as the ultimate and surely low-enough risk value option to bet on. The draw is one of the three outcomes in a game and in many cases the most profitable option, especially when it comes to close games between similar in quality and profile teams. Given that most bookies offer draws at odds slightly higher than 3.00, that makes the required strike rate merely 33% for us to have a tidy little profit or on a good day, something in the region of 42% for us to feel really good about ourselves. To me finding the right draw has been something of a priority since the start of the season and there have been several blogs from others dealing with the draw strategy. I decided to share my observations..
