WEST HAM UNITED V Leicester City

West Ham United v Leicester 20-12-2014. 15.00. The Boleyn. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out Sunderland 1-1 West Ham The Game West Ham arrived in confidence after coming from behind to defeat Swansea 3-1 on the previous Sunday, to face a Sunderland side who were looking like draw specialists.... From the off, both sides played with a high tempo with end to end stuff but generally it was the visitors who had the edge as the possession they had was in Sunderland's half and Carroll had a near post header go wide. Sunderland were looking dangerous on the counter attacks as they did it with pace and had the option to go direct and it was this, that lead to the opening goal.....Adam Johnson squared up to Tomkin's on the edge of the area and tried to go down the side, but the Hammers defender..

Southampton vs Everton - Six Straight defeats for Saints?
by danbradley on 18 Dec at 09:53
Southampton vs Everton - Six Straight defeats for Saints? It’s been a terrible week for the Saints, as defeats against Burnley and Sheffield United meant it is now 5 losses in a row. The wheels are coming off after a brilliant start, and fans are now looking at that winning run as a distant memory. What Southampton desperately need is a morale-boosting victory, and another defeat to the Toffees this weekend would send Saints fans into Christmas with a feeling of ‘Bah, Humbug’. The defeats to Man City, Arsenal and Man United could be seen as acceptable, but only on the premise that wins against the two unfashionable clubs that followed were secured, with Everton around the corner, it is hard to look upon upcoming fixtures with much positivity from a Southampton perspective. vs Everton - The Team Things don’t get any easier for..

WHAT HAVE THE ROMANS EVER DONE FOR US ??
by pompeybuster12 on 16 Dec at 20:31
WHAT HAVE THE ROMANS EVER DONE FOR US ?? “All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?” REG OF THE PEOPLES FRONT OF JUDEA. (THE LIFE OF BRIAN) FINEFORM, ONLY ON A WEDNESDAY. I want to spin a yarn on systems; primarily I want to put them in perspective. The basic premise of a system is back fitting results into a neatly arranged pattern that shows profit, the premise being that what has passed before will play out in the future. Inevitably the system starts to fail, so the Reg moment from the life of Brian plays out. The system maker needs to start back fitting again to stay in profit so the game begins………….. Hmmm if we back the top rated system picks..
