College Football - Week One Peview
by undertherobe on 26 Aug at 00:02
Strap on those pads, get those helmets on and tie those laces on your cleats because the College Football season is getting ready for the big kickoff. Primarily played on Saturday, the opening week sees games from Wednesday through to Monday as we get our first look at potential National Championship contenders and Bowl winners. Each week I’ll be previewing what I consider to be the three biggest games in College Football and trying to provide a bet or two along the way. You can find my season preview HERE where I looked at the prospects of seven teams who I think will be in the mix when it comes to the new College Football playoffs. The Associated Press have released their preseason rankings and the rankings of the teams I previewed are below TEAM PRESEASON RANKING Florida State Seminoles 1 Alabama Crimson Tide 2 Oregon Ducks 3 Oklahoma..
Portsmouth v Newport Division two football
by meoldmate on 29 Aug at 19:51
LEAGUE TWO FOOTBALL Portsmouth v Newport Portsmouth look to be revitalising this season, with three wins from four matches and the other being a draw. Could be things to come for Pompey this season, after doom and gloom for several years, where they have fallen from the top tier of football to league division two and nearly conference football, several good results at the end of last season pulled them clear of the relegation battle. Last season Portsmouth lost to Newport 2-0 at Fratton Park in december 2013, before this they lost 3-0 in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy in November of the same year, letting in a total of five goals without response, really poor show, on Portsmouth’s behalf. One of the games that help Portsmouth to escape the relegation battle was against Newport and the pressure was on for a good result,..

The Southampton Perspective: West Ham, Transfers, and Millwall Victory
by danbradley on 28 Aug at 09:54
The Southampton Perspective: West Ham, Transfers, and Millwall Victory Since my last blog piece the Saints have played twice: the first game was a drab 0-0 against West Brom, with neither side creating much at all and chances at a premium, and the second was a comfortable win over Millwall in the League Cup on Tuesday. The reward for that victory is a daunting trip to the Emirates to face Arsenal in round 3, but even though further progress now looks unlikely due to the draw, Koeman will surely be happy to get his first competitive win under his belt. Next on the agenda, though, is a trip to West Ham, and meanwhile with the transfer window slamming shut in a few days there will be a sense of urgency to get a couple more faces in to compliment the decent squad..
Leicester v Arsenal - Fox Hunting
by Pint Size on 28 Aug at 07:43
The Foxes v The Gunners Arsenal travel to King Power Stadium having held a record with Leicester of the Highest Scoring Draw in English Football when securing ''6 - 6'' Draw in the old 1st Division in April 1930 (only matched by Charlton 6 - 6 Middlesbrough in 1960), But obviously many things have changed for both teams in the 85 years that have since gone by, Suprisingly though Leicester hold the upper-hand in their 60 Previous Home Meetings throughout history having secured 21 Wins (35%), 21 Draws (35%) and 18 Losses (30%), Leicester have also Scored 97 Goals to Arsenal's 93 Goals in those 60 Home Meetings, But in Arsenal's favour is they hold the overall advantage in their 120 Meetings throughout history having secured 55 Wins (45.83%), 38 Draws (31.67%) and 27 Losses (22.5%) in those 120 Meetings. Whilst looking..

My Top 10 weekend football picks - August 30th to 31st
by tbuckley on 26 Aug at 13:05
My Top 10 weekend football picks - August 30th to 31st It's a definite case of keeping my tipping and punting powder dry for the midweek League Cup action as I personally find there are too many unknowns in terms of team selection and how serious team will take the competition. So I'll just watch it all unfold with interest in the football played but with no investments made and instead I've switched my focus to this weekend's action from the Premier League, Championship, League 1 and League 2. It's been a mixed story so far with my top midweek and weekend win picks as the scores stand at 10 up and 10 down, 4 from 10 last midweek and an improved 6 from 10 last weekend, so it's very much been a mixture of delight with some really good ones coming..
