WEST HAM UNITED V Leicester City
by redhammer on 16 Dec at 20:57
West Ham United v Leicester 20-12-2014. 15.00. The Boleyn. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out Sunderland 1-1 West Ham The Game West Ham arrived in confidence after coming from behind to defeat Swansea 3-1 on the previous Sunday, to face a Sunderland side who were looking like draw specialists.... From the off, both sides played with a high tempo with end to end stuff but generally it was the visitors who had the edge as the possession they had was in Sunderland's half and Carroll had a near post header go wide. Sunderland were looking dangerous on the counter attacks as they did it with pace and had the option to go direct and it was this, that lead to the opening goal.....Adam Johnson squared up to Tomkin's on the edge of the area and tried to go down the side, but the Hammers defender..
Laying Experiment - Analysis
by garethp1981 on 15 Dec at 20:31
One problem I have here is that I do not have details of all the market prices at various stages on Betfair, I only recorded the prices for the horses that I layed. What I do have are the SPs according to the website Sporting Life. The prices of the horses on Betfair are of course not the same as this, so I can’t compare apples with oranges. But I do think that it is worthwhile when comparing Sporting Life SPs for different horses. If I was doing the experiment again, then I would have recorded the activity on a much greater number of races, but unfortunately this thought has only come to me as I started to analyse the results. I do think that the SPs as given by the website will provide some useful information, but it will..
BREAKING BAD(HABITS) - WALTER WHITE AND ARSENE WENGER

BREAKING BAD(HABITS)-WALTER WHITE AND ARSENE WENGER "You clearly don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, and you think that of me? No! I am the one who knocks!" Walter White. “When you look at people who are successful, you will find that they aren't the people who are motivated, but have consistency in their motivation.” Arsene Wenger. THE LONG WALK As Arsene Wenger left the train station at Stoke under a torrent of abuse, he must have stopped, looked around and wondered where it had all gone wrong. An empire seemingly collapsing around him. It had once been so different for the Frenchman, he was the man who revolutionised Arsenal and the English game and yet when he landed on our shores he was..

Make Money with Top scoring Black Cats Top Sunderland Scorer this season It's really interesting to look at the odds available for Sunderland's top scorer this season. Whilst the bookies have pinned all hope on Steven Fletcher at 1/4 (bet victor) I see value lying elsewhere. Sunderland don't score many goals and this season Sunderland's goals have been pretty evenly spread amongst a few players. Current goals scoring table Steven Fletcher 4 Jordi Gomez 3 Connor Whickham 3 Adam Johnson 2 Seb Larsson 2 Whilst Fletcher is currently the top goal scorer the odds are not in any way attractive or necessarily reflective of his chance of winning. He is without doubt the most natural..

Odds on Relegation Teams in danger... Burnley - The Bookies favourites for the drop have managed to pick up a couple of wins recently and drag themselves out of the drop zone. Although it's likely they'll occupy one of the magical bottom three places again soon. Without the financial might of the likes of QPR it is difficult to see how a burnley will manage to avoid the drop. They have gone multiple games without scoring this season, which is never a good sign and their squad lacks real depth. Times will get tougher as the season draws on, injuries will likely come and cause further problems for the lads from Turf Moor. It's hard to see how they will escape the drop back down to the championship at the first time of asking. Best odds: 1/2 multiple..
