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..
Multiple Entries & Minor Meetings
by Micko70 on 18 Nov at 00:33
I have been watching Horse racing for 30 years now and gambling on it for over 25 years and something that still interests me now as much as as it did years ago is Multiple Entries. As does looking at minor meetings when the huge meetings take place, i will have a look at both subjects in this blog MULTIPLE ENTRIES I am not saying every horse with multiple entries wins, or every trainer with multiple entries in the race wins but they do often warrant a 2nd glance and can often win at decent prices. When i say Multiple Entries, what i mean is a horse that is entered for at least 3 races over a short period of time, say about 3 or 4 days or a trainer with at least 4 entries in a single race. Quite often horses that have multiple..
College Football - My Top 10
by undertherobe on 18 Nov at 22:18
After yet another week full of twists and turns in college football & with another set of committee rankings due on Tuesday night I thought I'd try and be one step ahead of the men & women entrusted with picking the four teams to contest the first ever college playoff and deliver my first rankings of the season a few hours earlier. Rather than go on overkill & do this each week, my next set will be the just before the final rankings of the season. So, if the first ever College Football Playoff was decided by the thoughts of one fan from the United Kingdom who would be in & who would be left on the sidelines with just three Saturday's left of the regular season (dramatic drum roll please) No.1 Florida State Seminoles (10-0) At the moment this is more of..

NFL EXPERTS PICKS - Week 12 NFL Picks!
by Chipmonkadidooda on 22 Nov at 00:08
NFL EXPERT PICKS WEEK 12 A little bit late on the blog this week I’m afraid and that means we missed out on the Thursday night game. No bad thing that then seen as the winless Raiders pulled out yet another shock result in the NFL by beating a streaking Chiefs team! Guess that’s not a big shock either anymore seeing a completely random win! It’s a tough job this predicting lark. Sadly this weekend we have only half our resident Experts contributing again. I waited as long as I could for some more entries, but there comes a point where you good people waiting for the blog need to read it and in doing so form your own opinion on where you’re going with your hard earned.
