by Micko70 on 28 Oct at 20:03
For me the winter jumps season starts when the Charlie Hall meeting at Wetherby gets under way, the race is a Grade 2 race and has been won by some good horses in the past. The race takes place on Saturday November 1st and OLBG also sponsor a mares hurdle race on the same card. I am using a new scoring system for trends races now, any horse passing a trend with a 9 or a 10 will get 3 points, any horse passing a trend with 7 or 8 will get 2 points and any horse passing a trend with 5 or 6 will get 1 point. I am looking at 8 trends for this race, they are, Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins & Grade Win There are 11 horses declared for the race..

Stoke City v West Ham United 1-11-2014. 15.00. The Brittania. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out West Ham 2-1 Man City The Game Last years champions came to the Boleyn and both sides were in a confident mood, City had played in the champions league, blowing a 2-0 lead in Russia while West Ham had won their last 2 on the trot. Allardyce named an unchanged side and it was his side who were on the backfoot from the off for the first 20 minutes as City created few half chanes with Aguero looking off the boil. A free kick inside the City half saw a long ball into the City box, nodded on by Reid and Valencia took contorl only to smash it against Joe Harts chest, leaving him flat our for a few minutes. Man of the match Song was controlling the..
PREMIERSHIP STATISTICS from some different angles.

PREMIERSHIP STATISTICS from some different angles. At the commencement of the season I decided to look at some stats from slightly different angles, searching for a profitable trend slightly off the beaten track. The stats will be generic rather than team specific initially but may be segregated later in the season once more data has been collected. Apologies for the formatting, that is best described as "work in progress". BACKGROUND TO THE STATISTICS During the early part of the campaign a few unexpected results will inevitably occur. Some of those may turn out not to be shocks as the season progresses and form settles. However, a few things did come as a surprise. The first, and this can only be a statistical blip or coincidence, was that in all seven matches on the first day of the season the away team scored the first..
Newcastle v Liverpool
by Micko70 on 29 Oct at 17:56
Newcastle United finally look like they have turned the corner after their surprising win at Tottenham, despite looking woeful in the first half Liverpool were held at home 0-0 by Hull City and many people thought Hull should actually have picked up the points. Both sides are leaking goals too, Newcastle have scored 6 and conceded 7 at home, whilst Liverpool have scored 8 and conceded 8 on the road. PREVIOUS MEETINGS Liverpool picked up 4 points from the 2 games last season, a 2-1 win at Anfield after a 2-2 draw at St James Park. Newcastle scored first in both games and also had players sent off in both games too. The last 10 results at St James Park are as follows - 19-10-13 - Newcastle 2 Liverpool 2 27-04-13 - Newcastle 0 Liverpool 6 01-04-12 - Newcastle 2 Liverpool 0 11-12-10 - Newcastle 3 Liverpool 1 28-12-08 -..
LEICESTER CITY v West Brom. Premiership November 1st
by davidg3907 on 30 Oct at 17:45
LEICESTER v West Brom. Premiership November 1st. With just one point from three matches in October Leicester appear to be struggling. But how closely do the facts reflect that? LEICESTER CITY v WEST BROM The four matches since the great start to the season have come either side of international breaks. Looking at those matches individually, the home draw against Burnley was a serious disappointment due to the lateness of the goal and the unusually sloppy defending of the free kick itself. The three away defeats have been at a rejuvenated Crystal Palace who were themselves on a high after winning at Everton , Newcastle who despite being winless prior to playing Leicester have won at Tottenham and Manchester City..

by Chipmonkadidooda on 30 Oct at 22:31
NFL EXPERT PICKS WEEK 9 I'm afraid it's a quick up and out this week. Let's call it a no huddle offence in terms of the blog this week. Precious little time and plenty to do sadly.

£700 for a television ?

"THE FACT THAT AN OPINION HAS BEEN WIDELY HELD IS NO EVIDENCE WHATEVER THAT IT IS NOT UTTERLY ABSURD." Bertrand Russell Philosopher and Mathematician. I sat at the bar next to Andy one of my oldest friends , I had played a blinder I thought sitting with my slip that had 14/1 scribbled onto it , the slip was now trading at 7/1 according to the female and Big Mac , although with no access to a computer I had to let him run. Something dawned on me that day that has stayed with my ever since, I mean I had often read racing books written by the pros on the importance of being different and going against the crowd, yet on this day it seemed just the importance of common sense, I was looking at the market in a completely different..
