Praise for Pulis, Pearson and (Perhaps) for Pardew
by garethp1981 on 21 Jul at 20:49
It has become a footballing cliché that the game is one of two halves; sometimes a team can go in at half time having had a good half and certain that they will win the game, only to come out after the break and find that the opposition have changed their system, struggle to cope and go on to lose. Similarly a team can go into the break pretty certain that they are going to lose a game, only to regroup at half time, perhaps make a couple of changes, and then come out and win the game. For certain teams in the 2014-15 season, it has been a season of two halves, and as one of the biggest things that can have a n effect on a team at half time in a game is the manager, it is..
Premiership Transfer Window Losers
by botev1921 on 27 Jul at 16:33
After talking about the Premiership Transfer Window winners I decided to come back to the losers category I was considering and quickly go over the teams and players I consider to have done worse than expected or to have done certain moves that simply lack coherence and logic. While obviously for a certain transfer to be considered a failure one would need to monitor how things go for at least a couple of months, there were still those occasional pieces of business that just made very little sense in the context of what the teams/players needed to go one step further in their development. Feel free to add comments even if you disagree completely with some of my observations and we will be able to compare points of view come May 2016 and see who got it right or wrong...
The Southampton Perspective - Saints Premier League Preview 15/16
by danbradley on 26 Jul at 11:27
The new season is near and excitement is building ahead of another Premier League campaign. Fans up and down the country will be wondering how their sides will get on after a long summer with little in the way of footballing action. While there will be plenty of attention on the fight at the top and whether a rejuvenated Man Utd and an Anglicised Man City can compete with Chelsea at the top, or whether Arsenal can continue their upward trajectory and mount a title challenge. At the bottom, Bournemouth, Watford and Norwich will be hoping to survive a difficult first season in the top flight, while others who struggled through last season will be hoping to avoid a similarly turbulent year. My focus here is on my team, Southampton, and how we will fare in an exciting year for..

No Labour Leader Issues for Mahan in Canada The PGA Tour has a rare trip outside it’s borders this week heading north to Canada for the RBC Canadian Open.

Premier League 2015/16 - an Ante-Post bet for every team
by tbuckley on 22 Jul at 00:17
Premier League 2015/16 - an Ante-Post bet for every team Ahead of every new football season or major football tournament, I love setting myself different betting related challenges and one of my favourite, thankfully most productive challenge is to set myself the task of finding a valid, interesting and hopefully value ante-post bet for every Premier League team. The motivation for the challenge is to add interest and of course also search out great betting opportunities, it's always tough to come up with a ante-post bet for every Premier League team and I must say I've found it more demanding this pre-season as there are so many questions to be answered and in terms of final playing squads those questions won't be answered until the transfer window shuts beginning of September. Over the last few weeks I've looked at a wide range..
Next Manager Out Of The Premier League Door
by bitmoretechnical on 24 Jul at 16:20
Brendan Rodgers is almost a universal favourite to be the first manager booted out of the Premier League but there are at least three managers whose odds of leaving their job next make much better bets. Best Bets McClaren, Newcastle 33/1 Owners: It seems like only yesterday that Mike Ashley was just a businessman, rather than the target of spite for so many Geordies. Ashley has his favourites but he has also lost patience with many managers in very short periods - Pardew was the exception to the rule. Manager's record last five years: McClaren has been sacked in four of the last five seasons, across three different countries. Verdict: Fantastic odds for a ropey manager with a tetchy chairman. Flores, Watford 6/1 Owners: Pozzo Family in charge since summer 2012. On their sixth manager since then. They sack bosses even when results are..
