STOKE v Burnley: Potters to Edge a Tight Game.
by trouserdog78 on 21 Nov at 10:07
There's nothing that distorts your sense of anticipation for a fixture like an international break. The scattergun approach to fixture placement during these long, painful weekends doesn't even afford fans a direct replacement for their beloved 3pm Saturday kick off (yeah, like that's the norm these days) so we now have no decent excuse to avoid being dragged around garden centres, elderly relatives' houses or, even worse, the horrors of early Christmas shopping. Whereas a fixture against Burnley would normally elicit the same level of anticipation as a visit to B&Q to look at the wallpaper, having suffered a weekend of pointless international garbage, I'm practically salivating at the prospect of Sean Dyche's unglamorous bunch arriving at the Brit. Oh the horrors of Hanley on a Saturday afternoon... I'll be falling to my knees and virtually kissing the p***-stained..
LEICESTER CITY v Sunderland. Premiership November 22nd
by davidg3907 on 20 Nov at 23:16
With just one point ( and only the 2 goals against Burnley ) since the win over Manchester United, Leicester have dropped into the drop zone and are in need of an injection of points but confidence is still surprisingly OK, at least on the surface. LEICESTER CITY v SUNDERLAND. Ten of Leicester’s eleven Premiership goals have been scored at home, mainly through solid counter attacking football. They will fancy themselves to score goals against a Sunderland defence that has been far from water tight on the road. Only QPR have leaked more on their travels but it must be borne in mind that 8 of the 12 conceded by Sunderland were on a miserable trip to..
Weekend Football Multiple Fun - 21st to 24th November
by tbuckley on 17 Nov at 00:50
Weekend Football Multiple Fun - 21st to 24th November Well the quest for an all correct football multiple continues, it's been a mixed ride so far hitting the crossbar with a few bets as just 1 team has let me down but then other bets were basically only 1 team has come good. It's been a really strange mix of highs and lows, it's been good fun watching how all the football matches from the various leagues have worked out but at the same time some of the results and failed tips have left me shaking my head and thinking "how did that happen ?" Generally this season has had a strange feel to it and not really had a good, continuous flow yet with all the breaks for internationals, so now the latest international break is out of the way I..
CME Group Tour Championship ( LPGA Tour ) 2014 Preview
by The rabbit on 16 Nov at 20:28
Lydia Ko is the youngest lady golfer to have won $1 million in earnings and she is competing in the final tournament of the 2014 LPGA season which is the CME Group Tour Championship at the Ritz Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida and it takes place from the 20th November - 23rd November 2014. There is no cut. The host course for this event was the Grand Cypress golf club in 2011 and in 2012 it was the Eagle Course at TwinEagles. Last year the Ritz Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida was the host course and it will be again this year. The tournament features about 70 of the best lady golfers and is a good reflection of the LPGA season as it features the majority of the players who have won a LPGA tournament in 2014 and also..
PREMATURE MAYDAY FROM THE EMIRATES
by pompeybuster12 on 21 Nov at 16:04
“Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.” Warren Buffett Arsene Wenger appears to have thrown in the towel already, with recent comments regarding Chelsea. Wenger states that Chelsea are on course for 100 points and my own pound for pound analysis agrees with this. I have Chelsea with a predicted 103 points on current form, I am however confident that this won’t happen as it seems very unlikely any team will finish a Premier League season with such a haul of points. The main concern about Chelsea is obviously the fitness of COSTA and REMY, both good players and indeed crucial to Chelsea’s assault on the Premier League title. If we look at Chelsea on a par with Costas goals we see that the Brazilian/Spaniard..
Troytown Handicap Chase Trends (Updated Friday 21st Nov)
by Micko70 on 20 Nov at 15:38
The Troytown Handicap Chase is a Grade B handicap chase that is run at Navan racecourse in the 2nd half of November. The race is run over 3 miles and is open to all horses aged 4 or older and rated between 0 & 150. It is also one of the biggest chases run at the course ans 1 of the most attractive Handicap Chases run in Ireland throughout the season. I am looking at 9 different trends for the race, they are - Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins, Chase Wins & Distance. Any horse passing a trend with 10 gets 5 points, 9 gets 4 points, 8 gets 3 points, 7 gets 2 points and any horse passing a trend with 6 gets 1 point The 5 day declarations are - 72220- Cause Of Causes(216) 6..
Arsenal v Man Utd - No Defence Offered
by nors on 19 Nov at 20:30
At one time not many years ago the Arsenal v Man Utd clash would have been a title decider but fortunes have plummeted for both, there is a real danger for their fans and their boards that 1 or both may not make the Champions League in 2015. Neither team has been consistent enough this season as you can see by the table below. Arsenal 5 Wins 42% 4 Losses 33% 3 Draws 25% Man Utd 4 Wins 33% 4 Losses 33% 4 Draws 33% Man Utd’s inconsistency is slightly more understandable than Arsenal’s. New manager Van Gaal has taken a chainsaw to David Moyes team and..
