  • College Football Week Five: Another big test for Notre Dame in prime time

    undertherobe on 01 Oct at 19:22

    Whilst the Big Ten has the top two teams in the country in Ohio State and Michigan State, the Pac-12 looks to be getting stronger and stronger whilst the SEC has many questions to answer. It promises to be another exciting week in College Football as the conference schedules start to ramp up. This week’s blog takes a look at another non Power Five team to watch, the underdog of the week and the big prime time matchup as Clemson host Notre Dame.... The Top Three In my season preview, I concentrated on the top three ranked teams, so how did they get on in week four? Ohio State Buckeyes (1) In reality, Western Michigan were never going to be much of a test for the Buckeyes and so it turned out as Ohio State ran out 38-12 winners. They’ve arrived at the end…

    THE FACE OF RABIES. “I would like to introduce you to the face of rabies” MICHAEL SCOTT (THE OFFICE US) (Michael then turns around a board with a picture of Meredith Palmer.) “How many of you know somebody who has been afflicted with rabies?” The whole of the staff raise their hands in acknowledgement. Michael then states “You see, too many to count” and takes this as proof of the prominence of rabies in the US today. AN AMERICAN WORKPLACE. If you have never had the pleasure of watching THE OFFICE U.S., stop reading now, get a Netflix subscription and lock yourself in a bunker for a month, it is undeniably one of the funniest, intelligent and heartfelt pieces of television ever made, it bucks all of the trends associated with American comedy, dealing self delusion and self deprecation, while managing to charm you at the same time,…

  • Just one selection let me down last week. Will this week bring more luck?

    undertherobe on 01 Oct at 06:30

    After laying an egg the previous week, it was nice to get back to winning ways last week although for the second time this season, the accumulator fell one win short as the exertions of a penalty shoot out at Anfield cost Carlisle in a 1-0 home defeat to bottom club Newport. This is the last week before the International break so before a truncated accumulator next week, it’s another shot at trying to land the second five from five of the season....... Running Totals Singles: 14/23 (60.87% strike rate), 5.20 pts profit (22.61% roi) Accumulators: 1/5 (20.00% strike rate), 12.40 pts profit (248% roi) A quick recap of the rules I’ve set myself for this experiment, Rule One No odds are out of range. We hear stories all the time of a short priced favourite scuppering a big acca but for someone & a lot…

  • NFL EXPERTS PICKS 2015-16 - Week 4 NFL Picks!

    Chipmonkadidooda on 01 Oct at 21:06

    NFL EXPERTS PICKS - WEEK 4   Normality resumed last week then. Phew! After the shenanigans of week 2 we could all give out a collective sigh of relief as we were back to winning ways and not collectively doubting our skills within the NFL experts market. In fact, better than that it was a pretty decent turn of events with LAZARUS76 picking 15 of the 16 games correctly last week. Well done Loz! It’s a sad tale to tell then when I have to report that those pesky Cleveland Browns absolutely let the side down last week as they failed to tie up the game at the death at home to the Raiders and force overtime to at least give us a shot at clinching our first accumulator of the season. All the rest of our unanimous consensus picks last week came…

  • A Blue Point of View

    RACHACE on 01 Oct at 15:21

    Manchester City v Newcastle United, Saturday 3rd October (15:00 ko) Firstly, welcome to my blog, my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. Our 8th game see's us host the struggling and winless Newcastle United at the Etihad Stadium. The Magpies have had a very tough start to the season which has seen early season optimism dampen somewhat. No win in any of their opening 7 fixtures, losing 4 and drawing 3. However, they did play well for the majority of their last game against Premier League champions Chelsea but after having led the game 2-0, they unfortunately failed to hold on and the game ended 2-2. Still, before the game they'd have taken the point so they can still take the positives from what was a much improved performance to the ones they'd put…

  • Chelsea vs Southampton - Can Saints Catch Chelsea Cold?

    Chelsea vs Southampton - Can Saints Catch Chelsea Cold? Saints’ season finally seems to be up and running with their convincing win over Swansea meaning the club’s form now looks very respectable, with only an unlucky and narrow defeat to Man Utd, who currently lead the league, as a blemish on their recent form. With Saints coming into this game in decent form and Chelsea on the back of several defeats at the start of the season, this looks like the best chance for Saints to face up to this most difficult of fixtures. vs Chelsea - The Team The last match saw the timely return of Ryan Bertrand at left full back, and he seems likely to keep his place against his old side, and his overall return to action is something that should help Southampton greatly. He and the addition of…
