College Football - My Top 10
by undertherobe on 18 Nov at 22:18
After yet another week full of twists and turns in college football & with another set of committee rankings due on Tuesday night I thought I'd try and be one step ahead of the men & women entrusted with picking the four teams to contest the first ever college playoff and deliver my first rankings of the season a few hours earlier. Rather than go on overkill & do this each week, my next set will be the just before the final rankings of the season. So, if the first ever College Football Playoff was decided by the thoughts of one fan from the United Kingdom who would be in & who would be left on the sidelines with just three Saturday's left of the regular season (dramatic drum roll please) No.1 Florida State Seminoles (10-0) At the moment this is more of..
PREMATURE MAYDAY FROM THE EMIRATES
by pompeybuster12 on 21 Nov at 16:04
“Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.” Warren Buffett Arsene Wenger appears to have thrown in the towel already, with recent comments regarding Chelsea. Wenger states that Chelsea are on course for 100 points and my own pound for pound analysis agrees with this. I have Chelsea with a predicted 103 points on current form, I am however confident that this won’t happen as it seems very unlikely any team will finish a Premier League season with such a haul of points. The main concern about Chelsea is obviously the fitness of COSTA and REMY, both good players and indeed crucial to Chelsea’s assault on the Premier League title. If we look at Chelsea on a par with Costas goals we see that the Brazilian/Spaniard..
STOKE v Burnley: Potters to Edge a Tight Game.
by trouserdog78 on 21 Nov at 10:07
There's nothing that distorts your sense of anticipation for a fixture like an international break. The scattergun approach to fixture placement during these long, painful weekends doesn't even afford fans a direct replacement for their beloved 3pm Saturday kick off (yeah, like that's the norm these days) so we now have no decent excuse to avoid being dragged around garden centres, elderly relatives' houses or, even worse, the horrors of early Christmas shopping. Whereas a fixture against Burnley would normally elicit the same level of anticipation as a visit to B&Q to look at the wallpaper, having suffered a weekend of pointless international garbage, I'm practically salivating at the prospect of Sean Dyche's unglamorous bunch arriving at the Brit. Oh the horrors of Hanley on a Saturday afternoon... I'll be falling to my knees and virtually kissing the p***-stained..
DP Dubai World Championship Preview
by jimmywomble on 19 Nov at 06:46
Westwood Back on Top in Dubai The European Tour wraps up this weekend with the DP Dubai World Championship which will again be from the Earth Course at the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai. Winner of this event and also taking the Race to Dubai was Henrik Stenson who won by 6 shots of his waiter for the night Ian Poulter. I’m not 100% sure on the opening tee times but it will be the early hours of Thursday 20th November UK time. The Course & Past Winners The Earth Course was designed by Greg Norman and opened in 2009, the same year as the first event. It’s a long course at 7,675 yards, and of course being in Dubai it is a desert course with plenty of waste areas, and also water with the 17th being an island green..
The story so far
by ibfm23 on 16 Nov at 09:59
The international break gives us an opportunity to look back and appraise the first trimester of the ongoing season. THE TRANSFER MARKET The Reds were amongst the most active clubs during the summer transfer window and following Suarez’s departure, Rodgers went on a spending spree which brought in no less than 9 new faces (including Origi who has been loaned back to Lille). Lovren 6.5 The Croatian arrived at Anfield on the back of a strong season with Southampton. The center back put in a number of solid performances during his first outings, however, he has as yet failed to impose his leadership on Liverpool’s defense. Good news is that at 25 he still a youngster in terms of defenders and there is no doubt that he will get better and better as the season progresses. Moreno 7 The Spanish left back was..
Weekend Football Multiple Fun - 21st to 24th November
by tbuckley on 17 Nov at 00:50
Weekend Football Multiple Fun - 21st to 24th November Well the quest for an all correct football multiple continues, it's been a mixed ride so far hitting the crossbar with a few bets as just 1 team has let me down but then other bets were basically only 1 team has come good. It's been a really strange mix of highs and lows, it's been good fun watching how all the football matches from the various leagues have worked out but at the same time some of the results and failed tips have left me shaking my head and thinking "how did that happen ?" Generally this season has had a strange feel to it and not really had a good, continuous flow yet with all the breaks for internationals, so now the latest international break is out of the way I..

The Troytown Handicap Chase is a Grade B handicap chase that is run at Navan racecourse in the 2nd half of November. The race is run over 3 miles and is open to all horses aged 4 or older and rated between 0 & 150. It is also one of the biggest chases run at the course ans 1 of the most attractive Handicap Chases run in Ireland throughout the season. I am looking at 9 different trends for the race, they are - Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins, Chase Wins & Distance.
