Pre-season 2015/16 - The Liverpool Perspective; two weeks to go
by ibfm23 on 26 Jul at 12:00
Once again the Reds were amongst the most active clubs during the summer transfer window. Last year, we all had the ill feeling that the failure to replace Suarez would have a detrimental effect, and it did indeed. This time around though, Rodgers has done a better job at slotting in signings where required. Last time out, Liverpool conceded 48 goals in 38 matches, 10 or more goals short of the top four’s defensive record. This notwithstanding, the Reds kept 14 clean sheets, better than Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United. Yet, when things went wrong they went horribly wrong and Liverpool conceded more than 2 goals on 7 occasions which all ended in defeats. In comparison, the top four jointly conceded more than 2 goals 7 times! When things got hard, the Reds were unable to keep it together and this..
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..

Ante-Post bets for European leagues
by Epic on 30 Jul at 15:48
In recent years I have discovered the magic of ante-post bets for myself. I've always made bets here and there, but only recently I started to do more research regarding the selections as I feel they offer great value. I've been quite successful in picking out the winners and losers even before a ball has been kicked. And isn't it great when a long season has ended and you get an extra sum from pretty much nowhere added to your account? I've certainly enjoyed it and hopefully, if you follow my tips, you could also win big with bets made before the new football season has started. I've picked out ten ante-post bets, all with at least even odds, from European leagues. FRANCE Bordeaux to finish TOP 6 in Ligue 1 @ 2.20 (Unibet) Since winning the Ligue title in 2009 Bordeaux..
Norwich City V's Crystal Palace - 8th August 3pm KO
by Ralfie1982 on 30 Jul at 20:35
Norwich v Crystal Palace Delighted to be asked to give my view on CPFC matches as they come up. I will try to be factual and matter of fact as best I can but I make no apologies if occasionally my heart will rule my head. So here is my first one, please let me know what you think and if you want to know anything else. Some History / Match Stats Under 2.5 goals in last 4 meeting of the two clubs. Norwich have won 10 of the 23 times they have met at Carrow Road 7 Draws and 6 losses make up the remainder. Dont take pre-season to seriously CPFC (and I think NCFC) have put mixed teams out. Palace conceded plenty from set pieces under Pardew - NCFC have plenty of big forwards (and CB's) such as Hooper,..

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..
