Newcastle v Leicester (Newcastle's point of view)
by Micko70 on 14 Oct at 22:22
After yet another premiership game without a win (2-2 at Swansea), Newcastle are starting to look like strong candidates for relegation Newcastle have had the international break to try and focus on getting their first win of the season, this week they entertain Leicester City, who have had a decent start to the new season, including a 5-3 win over Man Utd As we head into this weekend, Newcastle are currently sitting in 18th place on 4 points, whilst Leicester are sitting 12th with 9 points PREVIOUS MEETINGS Looking at the last 20 meetings in all competitions we can see that Newcastle have won 10, Leicester have won 3 and the other 7 games were drawn The last 10 meetings at St James Park have seen the home side win 8, Leicester winning 1 and 1 game ending in a draw PREDICTIONS The pressure will be on..
The Hotspur Outlook - 'Citizen Kane'
by KanKeano on 16 Oct at 19:03
The Hotspur Outlook - 'Citizen Kane' Well the relief at the end of the game against Southampton was palpable after securing our first win in 4 games and we got a decent performance to boot. Eriksen got the goal that beat Southampton 1-0 and we could have easily got a couple more against a side that were high on confidence coming into the game. That said if Mane had managed to get his foot on the cross in the final minutes of the game it could have been a different story. Considering the chance was easier to score than miss it came as a huge relief to see him miss the ball completely and keep the clean sheet in tact. But we still have issues converting the number of chances we create into goals and that's why a proven goalscorer should..
Everton v Aston Villa - Time for Toffee's to get winning
by fairfranco on 15 Oct at 13:22
After a tough start to the season that has seen Everton win just one of their 7 games conceding more goals than anyone else, a massive 16 whilst also scoring 13 goals. Everton's first 7 games were undoubtedly tough as they played Arsenal and Chelsea at home and Liverpool and Man Utd away but there can be no excuses really for the poor defensive performances that saw them concede so many in games that they matched the opposition but produced so many defensive errors. The other 3 games were against supposed bottom half sides and only produced 4 points with a draw against Leciester on the opening day, a win against West Brom and a very poor performance in a loss to Crystal Palace. Everton now have what could be called a decent run of games and they must turn their..
The Southampton Perspective: Saints Face Bogey Side
by danbradley on 16 Oct at 09:52
The Southampton Perspective: Saints Face Bogey Side Southampton’s run came to an end last week in defeat to Tottenham and former manager Mauricio Pochettino but my profits for the season continued as I bagged an LSP of +8.75 for the match. This is little consolation to me as a fan, though the performance against Spurs was decent enough, and a point might have been a fair result from the match. Next up for the Saints are draw specialists and recent bogey team Sunderland. The international break could have been timed better for the Saints, as that defeat still lingers in the mind, and taints the excellent run of form which preceded it. Despite this recent form, however, I am finding it hard to make a case for the Saints winning this game. I’m not usually one for taking too much attention..
Qipco British Champion's Day........More an End of Season Jolly-Up!
by Randy Rann on 16 Oct at 21:41
End Of Season Championship sadly lacking The Champions but will be a party not to miss! A couple of days to go before the supposed celebration of Champions and though this season's star names won't be appearing it will still be a decent days racing. It does have the feel of an "End of Season Bash" though. It's a day that is much maligned owing to it's position in the calendar and plenty of the top trainers are bemoaning the timing of it, but it looks as if it's here to stay, so just enjoy it for what it is, is what I say. The torrential recent rain and probable heavy ground throw another spanner in the cogs, and it will pay to look for animals with webbed feet, but strangely it makes it more appealing for me from a punting perspective. A..
Frys.com Open - Review
by hornygoat on 13 Oct at 12:24
Frys.com Open Analysis New for this season (and time allowing), I will be conducting a public post-mortem of an event. A bit like a sexier Quincy, I’m hoping to get to the guts of an event from a punting perspective, and hope my findings can help spot future winners at the course. Overview In near perfect conditions and very little wind, Sang Moon Bae (or Bae Sang Moon) held off the nerves to emerge the victor. Entering the final round with a four shot lead, no one really put him under any pressure, meaning a +1 round was good enough for a two shot triumph and his second PGA Tour title. Steven Bowditch shot -10 to run into second spot, whilst a number of players including the much fancied Hideki Matsuyama and Hunter Mahan finished in a tie for 3rd spot. Bae (28) who..
