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..
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% ..
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..
2016 Oscar Preview
by LustForLeith on 28 Jun at 20:45
2016 Oscar Preview I know, I know, it’s too early to look at the Oscars. How can you tell how a film may do in the Academy Awards when you haven’t seen it or it’s competition? Well, there's no harm in trying! Could be quite an interesting year. There’s already some early favourites, so hotly tipped moves that have failed to deliver and the possibility of some surprises. Here’s things to consider - The last three Best Picture winners have been released in October in America That bodes well for the likes of The Walk, Legend, The Martian, Adam Jones, Freeheld, Steve Jobs. And The Last Witch Hunter. The likes of Boyhood and Grand Budapest Hotel could have done better if they had been released later in the year. But don’t rule out films that have been around for ages - Last year Whiplash dazzled..
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..
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..

Royal Ascot review, with declarations for winners
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...
