The Southampton Perspective - Saints Premier League Preview 15/16
by danbradley on 26 Jul at 11:27
The new season is near and excitement is building ahead of another Premier League campaign. Fans up and down the country will be wondering how their sides will get on after a long summer with little in the way of footballing action. While there will be plenty of attention on the fight at the top and whether a rejuvenated Man Utd and an Anglicised Man City can compete with Chelsea at the top, or whether Arsenal can continue their upward trajectory and mount a title challenge. At the bottom, Bournemouth, Watford and Norwich will be hoping to survive a difficult first season in the top flight, while others who struggled through last season will be hoping to avoid a similarly turbulent year. My focus here is on my team, Southampton, and how we will fare in an exciting year for..
Who'll win the 2015/16 Skybet League One?
by bobslay13 on 27 Jul at 20:48
Who’ll win the 2015/16 Skybet League One? 2 weeks to go until the first round of league fixtures in the 2015/16 season get underway; a good time to start trying to predict who’s going to win the divisions of the Football League. Many teams are still pretty under-staffed but most are starting to take shape and have the spine of their side sorted so I think we can make pretty logical predictions now. I’ll be looking at League Two in the next week or so but this episode I’m focusing on League One. League One So, who are the main competitors? I’m not going to look at every side in the league. Nor am I looking at who might clinch promotion because that means a chunky review of at least half the division; rather I’m going to look at a handful of teams..

Newcastle And West Ham - Be Careful What You Wish For
by garethp1981 on 27 Jul at 19:10
In the last part of my football blog reviewing the 2014-15 season I wrote about three teams who had bad starts to the season and then managed to turn things around. In this blog I will be writing about teams who did the opposite, a reasonably good start followed by a poor second half of the season. One example of this is Newcastle United who managed to stay in the Premier League in the end with 39 points; but this total does not tell the full story of the season. Alan Pardew left the club officially on the 2nd of January, so the team had played 20 of their 38 games. He left them on 27 points which most people would agree is not fantastic but is far from relegation form (Hull and QPR both had 19 points at this..
MLB Review - We 25.07.15
by undertherobe on 26 Jul at 07:41
Another excellent week in baseball ended with a no-hitter for Cole Hamels in Chicago. Hamels has been the subject of trade rumours for a while now and yesterday may well have been his final appearance in a Phillies uniform. In this week’s blog I look at four pitchers who are hot property this week as the trade deadline approaches, which teams to back and oppose in extra innings and another three pitchers to watch.... Picks Review Zack Greinke continued his remarkable run on Sunday as he outdueled Max Scherzer in Washington to extend his scoreless streak beyond 43 innings and he hasn’t given up a run since June 13th. The Dodgers found some offense against the Washington bullpen and racked up 15 hits in a 5-0 win. Greinke finished with 8 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 11 SO. It wasn’t just Greinke who..
Goodwood 5.25 NAT WEST STAKES (Handicap)
by meoldmate on 29 Jul at 01:08
Day one of Goodwood, was not that kind to my two blogs, hopefully this one could be more rewarding, with this being the get out stakes, last race. Handicap over seven furlongs and at present stage twenty go to post, this race is going to produce, many unlucky stories, with tiring horses and horses trying to find the room to make a play from the pace from, of course the ones that are drawn wide looking for cover will not be helping the ones on the inside. Plenty to ponder about in a handicap of this size. If the rain stays away, the ground would be running on the good side and with the wind that has been around, could start to appear a lot faster. HISTORY Just going back five years with winners of this race and I will place the draw..
