Newcastle United v West Ham United

Newcastle United v West Ham United LAST GAME OF THE SEASON-LIVE ON SKY SPORTS 24-05-2015. 15.00. St James Park. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out The Game West Ham 1-2 Everton The first half was a bit bland for the journalists with little goal mouth action but the talking point came when Coleman blocked Cresswells cross with his arm but the penalty claim was waved away. An early yellow card for Reid put Everton 1 up on the journey for Fair Play but McCarthy and Coleman put the Hammers 2-1 up. HT 0-0 The game kicked into life a little in the second half as both sides started to attack more without hitting top gear. On the 62nd minute a nice 1-2 with Song and Downing saw the latter curl it past Howard and put the Irons 1 up. 5 minutes later though and Leon Osmas made..

by jimmywomble on 19 May at 23:29
Moving to Tanihara to Win in Japan Another event on the Japan Tour that moves from course to course, it is the Kansai Open Golf Championship. The event was held until 1991 when it was dropped from the schedule, but returned in 2009 with Koumei Oda winning at the Rokko CC last year. This year it will be from the Meishin Yokaichi CC in Shiga, the course actually hosted back in 1981 where Akio Kanemoto was the victor. Japan it is 8 hours ahead of the UK and so this will start at 11pm UK time, on the 20th May. The Course & Past Winners The Shiga Prefecture is between the cities of Nagoya and Kyoto, next to the Biwa Lake. The Meishin Yokaichi CC is a few miles from the lake near the city of Higashiomi, just..
Both Teams To Score. The Final Weekend; Bobslay13

Both Teams To Score; Last Day of the season special Part II which is Redhammer's blog can be found HERE Intro This weekend marks the final gameweek of the season in the Premier League, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, La Liga and the Portuguese Primeira Liga. It’s a well-known fact that the average goals per game (GPG) skyrockets on the last day so myself and Redhammer thought it would be a good idea to revive the shared Both Teams To Score blog after a month off with our favourite selections and hope to go out in style with a nice chunky accumulator win. Below is an example of the increase in goals in 4 of Europe’s top divisions on the final day. The figures illustrate the theory well with an increase of approximately 4 goals on the final day in Spain..

Cown Plaza Invitational The Course PAR 70 There are 2 more PAR 3's than usual hence the PAR 70 not 72 The course highlight is the 13th Hole. It involves alot of water and not a lot of Green to aim at.... go take a look. Also worth a little look at hole 9 and 16. These other two could be the ones to focus on in the last round get over these in tact and your looking in good shape.

Confirmation Bias - Rules Of Thumb
by garethp1981 on 19 May at 20:27
Hopefully this is entirely unnecessary but let me start out by saying I am not advocating murder; the darlings referred to in what I say next are a metaphor for pet theories, whether they are about football, racing, the X Factor or whatever event you choose to bet on. That said here goes, I think you should murder your darlings; various great writers are quoted as having used the same phrase when talking about the secret of good writing. The idea is that if a writer themselves particularly likes a certain part of what they have written, they should probably take it out as it is likely to be self-indulgent and to subtract from others’ enjoyment of the work. In terms of betting I am not saying that all pet theories are wrong or that those who bet on that..
NHL Eastern Conference Final - Best of 7 now a Best of 3
by undertherobe on 23 May at 21:15
So after four games of the 2015 Eastern Conference Finals, nothing separates the NEW YORK RANGERS and TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING as they bid for the right to represent their conference in the Stanley Cup Finals. It’s been the very definition of an up and down series with both teams taking one game apiece on road ice. So now that this series has become a best of three, how do these teams match up? Regular Season Meetings Nov 17th : Tampa Bay won 5-1 @ NY Rangers Nov 26th : Tampa Bay won 4-3 vs NY Rangers Dec 1st : Tampa Bay won 6-3 @ NY Rangers The Series so far Game 1 : NY Rangers won 2-1 vs Tampa Bay Game 2 : Tampa Bay won 6-2 @ NY Rangers Game 3 : Tampa Bay won 6-5 vs NY Rangers Game 4 : NY Rangers won 5-1 @ NY Rangers After..
SUPER LEAGUE - ROUND FIFTEEN
by wildbillsghost on 21 May at 18:37
Thursday May 21th 2015 CASTLEFORD TIGERS vs. HUDDERSFIELD GIANTS 8pm KO Both the Tigers and the Giants will be looking to bounce back after disappointing cup exits last week. As Super League returns, and we are now into the second half of the season, both teams are well placed in the terrific looking battle to a top four place. Giants are currently holding pole position on the prized fourth place, but, Castleford are just one point behind and a win here will help them to leapfrog into that play-off spot. But, as said, both need to come out fighting after departing the Challenge Cup with a whimper last time out. Cas lost to Hull FC for the first time in five games, though to be..
