A Blue Point of View

West Ham United v Manchester City, Saturday 25th October (12:45ko) 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 9th Premier League match, our opponents are East London's finest, West Ham United. This is my personal favourite when it comes to London away days, West Ham have a great support that has always come across to me as very normal and down to earth support, that can't be said of the support for some of their London neighbours and I can honestly say that no matter the result I've always enjoyed my trip to Upton Park as a visiting fan. The 3 time FA Cup winners have a generally local fan base that's large in numbers and loyal. They maintain this..

The Biggest Mug Bet in Racing?
by garethp1981 on 21 Oct at 07:18
As an OLBG member I have been lucky enough to get the chance to join fellow members at the races a couple of times now. Of course the atmosphere at the racecourse and the racing itself is fantastic, but my favourite aspect of it is probably the conversations I have had with fellow members about racing as well as other sports. The most recent outing was to Doncaster and it did not disappoint in terms of the racing or the conversation, in fact I left not only having been lucky enough to win some money but also with a couple of ideas for things to write about in this blog. One conversation that I wasn’t actually involved in, but which I overheard on the way down to watch the OLBG race was about lucky 15 bets and the gist of..
