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..
Ashes 2015, England to tame "The Backyard Bashers" with their own scrappers.
by Randy Rann on 28 Jun at 13:57
Forthcoming Ashes Series has all the hallmarks of a classic, but England can scrape home in what promises to be a real dog-fight. Well we're not too far away from the First Ashes Test in Cardiff and I for one can't wait for the action to start. I still can't believe it's 10 years since that brilliant 2005 series here where Andrew "Freddie" Flintoff brought out the kid in me when he went close to taking over from Sir Ian Botham as my cricketing hero. The 1981 Ashes Series where Botham put in Superhero performances after being sacked as Captain got me hooked on this great game and Test cricket in particular. However that's all in the past and new heroes are to be made this summer as it's time for fresh faces to step up to the mantle and put..
MIDWEEK MAKE-UP MATCHES
by wildbillsghost on 30 Jun at 18:16
There are two games to start the week, they are make-up games from earlier in the season when the four clubs here were involved in Challenge Cup games a round before the rest of the Super League teams. Both games will be shown, LIVE, on the SkySports website, but not on TV. Tuesday June 30th 2015 HULL KINGSTON ROVERS vs. SALFORD RED DEVILS 8pm KO Rovers will be a big high after cementing their place in the Challenge Cup semi-finals. It was a good performance from the Robins, but one they nearly through away. Whether it was complacency, or just a great fight-back from the Dragons, things got a lot closer for Rovers than looked possible at the break. Having raced into a 24-0 lead after just half..
The Super Bantamweight Division - Frampton, Quigg, Rigondeaux And More
by bitmoretechnical on 01 Jul at 16:32
Keep your eye on boxing's super bantamweight division, it is about to provide some serious entertainment. On July 18 three of the main protagonists are fighting, not one another unfortunately, but those fights are just around the corner, and there are a few more characters who want to get a piece of the action. With 20 wins from 20 fights, Carl Frampton is the golden boy of the division at the moment but hot on his case is his UK rival, and also unbeaten, Scott Quigg. Nonito Donaire is a former unified champion who wants back to the top and maybe the best in the division, but widely avoided, is Cuba's Guillermo Rigondeaux. Frampton, 28, makes his US debut on July 18 and, although he shouldn't be seriously tested by Alejandro Gonzalez , his 22 year old undistinguished Mexican opponent, it is..
Trainers to follow in July
by Scratville on 30 Jun at 13:43
An awful June means we go into July with a minus £27.45 LSP for the year. July wasn't kind last year so we have a mostly new set of trainers this July. We are going with 6 flat trainers, 4 NH and one Irish Flat trainer. FLAT TURF DAVID SIMCOCK (3yo+) Suffolk trainer who crops up from time to time, usually with his AW runners. This month we will concentrate on his 3yo's and older as he has a poor record with his 2yo's at this time of year (2/27) and (£21.45 LSP) over the last 4 July's. 2011 4/39 10% +£ 8.42 2012 4/36 11% (£18.95) 2013 9/37 24% ..

Betting Approach - what do you think the most common betting mistakes are ?
by tbuckley on 26 Jun at 16:39
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..

Royal Ascot week, was exciting, thrilling and had everything else to go with the meeting, along with the channel four cameras. It is good to see the whole meeting through each day and not a few selected races. Never mind the...
