MLS 2015 Season Preview
by bobslay13 on 03 Mar at 21:43
MLS 2015 Season Preview Major League Soccer The 2015 MLS season kicks off at the StubHub Center in Los Angeles, the home of defending MLS Cup champions LA Galaxy on March the 7th when they face Chicago Fire. I’m looking forward to it and I’ve watched a fair bit of ‘Soccer’ in recent years so I thought I would do a season preview. I will give a bit of a background to football in America and then provide a short profile of all 20 teams with a season prediction. This is the 20th anniversary of MLS. Football in the USA has a longer history than most people give it credit for. This year actually marks the 37th year of a national league and surprisingly the 103rd year of football governed by FIFA in America. Firstly, 2015 sees 2 new franchises in Orlando City..

Trainers to follow in March
by Scratville on 01 Mar at 02:34
We move into March on the back of two successful months and an overall LSP of +£98.11. With Cheltenham just around the corner we highlight 6 NH trainers and 9 AW trainers. March has been good to us in the last two years, hopefully it will be again this year and we can make it 5 profitable months on the trot. NH PHILIP HOBBS (CHASERS) Sitting second in the trainers championship so far it has been a fantastic season for the Hobbs team. He goes into Cheltenham with a nice bunch of Chasers and has a great record with his Chasers in March. 2011 5/27 19% +£ 4.75 2012 8/23 35% +£23 25 2013 1/17..
Cadillac Championship ( World Golf Championship ) 2015 Preview
by The rabbit on 01 Mar at 14:04
Adam Scott will be competing in another World Golf Championship this week and it is the Cadillac Championship which is held at the TPC Blue Monster course at the Doral Golf Resort & Spa Club in Florida from the 5th March - 8th March 2015. The course was redesigned after the 2013 event finished and played much harder last year with the winning score being only - 4. There is no cut and it is a limited field event for most of the world's best players. This tournament is part of the FedExCup schedule and the winner will obtain 550 points. The TPC Blue Monster course has hosted this tournament since 2007 and the past eight champions of this tournament with their final scores are - 2014 - Patrick Reed - 4 2013 - Tiger Woods - 19 2012 - Justin Rose - 16 2011..
Gameweek 28 - Liverpool vs Burnley
by ibfm23 on 02 Mar at 06:18
A potential 8 point lead with 11 matches to go means that it’s Chelsea’s to lose, however the Premier League still has plenty of excitement to offer with the 3rd and 4th spot race and the relegation battle still wide open. Liverpool and Burnley are in the midst of these and the midweek match-up before the FA Cup break is crucial for both sides. The impressive display against Manchester City will have softened the Europa League exit blow and keeps the Reds fully in contention for a place in next year’s Champions League. With Sturridge (bravely rotated out against the Sky Blues) slowly regaining fitness and with Sakho and Gerrard back in full training, Rodgers should have a close to full squad ahead of the final sprint. There isn’t much to say about Burnley. Dyche’s men haven’t won a match since mid-January..
WGC Cadillac Championship
by beepee1984 on 04 Mar at 05:38
The Course suited long-hitters and since making it bigger it will benefit the big hitters even more. Recent winners of the WGC Cadillac have shown form in several previous tournaments including the PGA Championship, Humana, Quicken National Links and Wyndham. Before the redesign of the course T Woods won here 7 times, the only tournaments that he has won more is the WTC Bridgestone and Arnold Palmer Invitation. The majority of winners have also already had a top 10 finish. My selection isn't bad of the tee only 14 yards of the Top Driver, has won at the PGA and WGC Bridgestone as well as coming a 2nd in last years Arnold Palmer Invitation. He finished 4th in his penultimate event as well as 2 3rd places earlier in the season in December. Keegan Bradley 50/1..

I have done trends for every race at the festival in different blogs, with the exception of this race as it has been dominated by Quevega (pictured) and using normal conventional trends probably won't help us pick out the winner The race has been run 7 times and Quevega won 6 of those, so i have had to look at all of the placed horses to see if anything stands out from the 21 horses placed I have looked at Age, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Season Runs, Season Win, Grade Form & Distance The first 3 in each of the last 7 runnings were as follows - YEAR 1ST 2ND 3RD 2014 Quevega Glens Melody L'Unique 2013 Quevega Sirene D'Ainay Swincombe Flame 2012 Quevega Kentford Grey Lady Golden Sunbird 2011 Quevega Sparky May Ocean Transit 2010 Quevega Caroles legacy Voler La Vadette 2009 Quevega United Aura About You 2008 Whiteoak Refinement Chomba Womba All of the stats below are based on 21 runners but in some cases (Quevega) some cannot be counted,..
