Everton v WEST HAM UNITED
by redhammer on 20 Nov at 21:38
Everton v Wst Ham United 22-11-2014. 15.00. Goodison Park. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out West Ham 0-0 Aston Villa The Game The previous game saw us come from 2 down away to Stoke and ern a point as the game finished 2-2 so headed into this against an Aston Villa side with 6 defeats in a row and we had Sakho back into the starting eleven as well as Carroll on the bench for the first time. The game wasn't one for the neutrals and Agbonlahor missed Villas best opportunity of the half, and the game, as he had a decent chance but blasted well wide. West Ham were in control possession wise and attacked Villa but didn't create any clear cut chances and the Villa defense were able to combat our Ariel threat that has proved successful this season and our best chance..
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..
Arsenal v Man Utd - No Defence Offered
by nors on 19 Nov at 20:30
At one time not many years ago the Arsenal v Man Utd clash would have been a title decider but fortunes have plummeted for both, there is a real danger for their fans and their boards that 1 or both may not make the Champions League in 2015. Neither team has been consistent enough this season as you can see by the table below. Arsenal 5 Wins 42% 4 Losses 33% 3 Draws 25% Man Utd 4 Wins 33% 4 Losses 33% 4 Draws 33% Man Utd’s inconsistency is slightly more understandable than Arsenal’s. New manager Van Gaal has taken a chainsaw to David Moyes team and..
LEICESTER CITY v Sunderland. Premiership November 22nd
by davidg3907 on 20 Nov at 23:16
With just one point ( and only the 2 goals against Burnley ) since the win over Manchester United, Leicester have dropped into the drop zone and are in need of an injection of points but confidence is still surprisingly OK, at least on the surface. LEICESTER CITY v SUNDERLAND. Ten of Leicester’s eleven Premiership goals have been scored at home, mainly through solid counter attacking football. They will fancy themselves to score goals against a Sunderland defence that has been far from water tight on the road. Only QPR have leaked more on their travels but it must be borne in mind that 8 of the 12 conceded by Sunderland were on a miserable trip to..
Asian Handicap Betting as a Tug of War
by garethp1981 on 20 Nov at 13:16
What is now known in the West as Asian Handicap Betting was originally called Hang Chen betting has been popular in Indonesia for a long time but is said only to have gotten its English name as late as 1998. The story goes that Joe Phan, an Indonesian bookmaker sent an Email to a journalist called Joe Saumarez Smith who at the time worked for an organisation called Vegas Insider, asking for an English name for this type of bet. Asian Handicap was the name that Smith came up with. In the simplest terms it is a way of evening up a game of football so that there are two main outcomes that can happen which have a roughly even chance of happening. Contrary to popular belief, the Asian Handicap doesn’t always rule out the chances of a draw although..
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..
