Pre-season 2015/16 - The Liverpool Perspective
by ibfm23 on 29 Jun at 05:55
Hello and welcome to my 2015/16 season blog! The Reds have opted for a different pre-season strategy this time around and in contrast with last year’s high profile friendlies will travel east and face a number of local sides in Thailand, Australia and Malaysia. Back in Europe they will play HJK in Finland before kicking off the season at Stoke (!!!shivers) on 8 August. The club has been very active during the early part of the summer transfer window. After securing the signatures of out of contract Bogdan, Milner and Ings and sealing a deal for U19 England international Gomez, Liverpool announced the arrival of Firmino from Hoffenheim for £29m. The Brazil international paves the way for Sterling’s departure which should yield between £40m to £50m thus leaving a sizable balance to be reinvested in additional reinforcements. Reports indicate that the Reds have..
Wimbledon 2015 - Prediction Blog
by botev1921 on 26 Jun at 14:21
We had one winner in our Roland Garros prediction blog and came close with the Novak Djokovic prediction only to be denied, like I am sure many others, by the on-fire Stan Wawrinka. After breaking our previous visits record, the panel is back again for arguably the most traditional and most popular Grand Slams of all, Wimbledon. The grass court season has been expanded this season, which in a way is helpful to punters as we have a better view on how different players are approaching the conditions and what kind of form they are in, so hopefully our predictor will also deliver a few more winners just like last year when we had a consensus winner in the ATP section. This edition of the predictor also represents our first anniversary, during which we covered all Grand Slams, had our..
Over 40 Future Flat Racing Winners (Hopefully!)
by monkeytennis on 26 Jun at 14:28
I did one of these lists on here a couple of years ago and it threw up plenty of winners and we are at that stage in the flat season again where I feel I have a good list of well handicapped horses to go to war with. As usual the list is comprised mainly of 3yos that have run in very strong early season 3yo handicaps. Some probably won't be seen again and others will completely lose their form but hopefully most will reproduce their early season efforts and win some races. I'd generally expect most to win first time given their preferred conditions and if they don't win within three races I'll normally give up on them. The ones nearer the top are most likely to give their running/be seen out soon: Rotherwick - Had 9 runs as a 2yo..

The Open Championship - Things to think about over the coming month.
by Ralfie1982 on 28 Jun at 23:08
The Open Championships Time to get our thinking caps on over the coming weeks and think about where the value is likely to be. I have just seen my 100/1 Kiradech Aphibarnrat place (T4) in the BMW Open, so some more positives for those who follow my tips and also we saw Stenson make a small amount of cash back finishing 2nd at 15/2 The Next One.... So what I plan to do now with over a month to go is not necessarily give my tips now but highlight those I will be watching, some trends, facts and other pointers that we can look at and over the course of the next week or two. The Course & Stats £1,150,000 prize to the winner (up £175k) Held at St Andrews (28th time held there) Last held here 2010 Tiger Woods holds..
Betting Approach - what do you think the most common betting mistakes are ?

Betting Approach - what do you think the most common betting mistakes are ? With Royal Ascot now finished and with the domestic football season not starting until August, right now seems a very good time to take a break from focusing on betting directly and look at different aspects of punting, to see how we do things, what we've learned and what we do wrong. I say 'we' because I'm most definitely a punter and have been for 20 years legally but admittedly a few more that were not legal, don't blame me by the way, the bookies at Doncaster never asked me for me ID and happily took my money, and so did I in return. Yes I'm a punter at heart and I've always been fascinated by how other punters approach their betting, what bets they do, what markets..
City Lacked Chelsea's Consistency
by garethp1981 on 28 Jun at 17:34
Thus far since the end of the season I have written blogs reviewing the football season in five countries. These five countries, Germany, Spain, Italy, France and Portugal are all part of the top six leagues in Europe according to UEFA (I picked the top six because numbers seven and eight are Russia and Ukraine, leagues in which have little interest). Since I have looked at five countries, and I am covering the top six there is obviously one missing, and this country is England. The English league is the second highest UEFA-rated league behind Spain and is the one most often tipped on by OLBG members. The Premier League is also the league in which I have the most interest and it is the one about which I have the most to say, so it is the one I..
