by The rabbit on 18 Aug at 09:54
Rory McIlroy is playing on the PGA tour this week and will be hoping to continue his excellent form and gain another victory following his recent wins in The Open and the PGA Championship which was the final Major of 2014. The first leg of the FedEx Cup play offs takes place and 125 players have qualified to compete in The Barclays which has been a regular event on the PGA Tour for many years ( was known as the Barclays Classic in 2005-06 and the Buick Classic from 1990 to 2004 ) and 122 players have decided to play in it. The winner receives 2,500 points in the FedEx Cup. The host course for the Barclays was the Westchester Country Club from outset until 2007 when the tournament started to use it's current name and became part of the the FedEx..
The Ebor Handicap Trends
by Micko70 on 17 Aug at 21:14
The Ebor Handicap is widely regarded as one of the biggest Flat handicaps during the season, it is run at the York 4 day Ebor meeting in August. The race is run over 1m 6f and has been won by some good horses in the past, including Purple Moon (2007), Sergeant Cecil (2005), Quick Ransom (1992), Further Flight (1990) & Sea Pigeon (1979). The winner this year will collect over £160,000, a fantastic prize for a flat race. I am looking at the last 10 years of the race to see if any horses stand out by looking at the trends of those 10 winners. The Trends i am looking at are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Season Runs, Season Wins, Distance, Grade & Field Size There are still 76 horses left in the race, they are - 1-7088 Camborne(7) 6..
The Southampton Perspective: Saints Feeling Positive ahead of West Brom Clash
by danbradley on 21 Aug at 16:24
The Southampton Perspective: Saints Feeling Positive ahead of West Brom Clash There were plenty of people writing Southampton off before the start of the season, and that was completely understandable considering the high profile departures of the summer with the manager and several key players leaving the club. Those that were touting relegation as a possibility for the club were silenced somewhat by the positive performance and Championship hopefuls Liverpool. Koeman’s own reaction to the suggestions suggest the attitude of the club is still the same despite the change in furniture at St Marys, with the Dutchman scoffing at the suggestion that many people were putting money on the Saints to go down, insisting that those who take on such a bet wouldn’t be collecting come May. It’s got to a point now where the number of arrivals is similar to the..
US Open 2014 - Prediction blog
by botev1921 on 22 Aug at 00:02
After the huge success of the Wimbledon Prediction Blog and the positive feedback we received about it, our panel is back to give it another go, this time for the last Major of the season. The US Open represents something of a culmination for the tennis season as the summer is busy with all the US Open series tournaments and once the last Major is out of the way, the best tennis players can concentrate on rounding up their year with either eye on the Masters Finals or the smaller events in the last couple of months before the winter break. Just like for Wimbledon, our blog consists of six selections, all offered blindly by our experts, who have no idea what the others are thinking. There is the standard ATP and WTA champions selection and some ideas on players most..
Crystal Palace v West Ham United
by redhammer on 20 Aug at 20:02
23/08/14 Palace v West Ham Last time out West Ham United0-1 Tottenham Hotspur On the opening day West Ham played Spurs at home in their 38th last home league game before leaving Upton Park. After a reasonably poor pre-season but some really good additions in the transfer window saw mixed expectations among the home fans with the main focus on the style of play they endured last season under Sam Allardyce. Sell out crowd which signaled their support for the side and arguable the manager, when Spurs scored in stoppage time, what might have been met with a chorus of booing was in fact met with a huge rendition of 'I'm forever blowing bubbles' which represented the satisfaction with their sides efforts against one of their rivals. Line Up Adrian, O'Brien, Collins (sent off), Reid, Cresswell, Kouyate, Noble, Nolan(c), Vaz Te, Downing, Cole. Subs: Jääskeläinen,..
Three reasons why Man Utd won't finish in the top 4
by botev1921 on 16 Aug at 23:59
It takes a 5:1 win over Spain to impress the World, but after seeing Man Utd play their first official game of the season, I am far from impressed as obviously Luis Van Gaal is miles away from having a team remotely capable of beating anybody 5:1 in Manchester. International football is a much different material than club football and whoever thought it takes one good manager to magically turn around a team that obviously lacks a lot of components to be competitive, is now kicking themselves. It is a shame the honeymoon period for the Red Devils lasted for only a handful of summer friendlies, but neither against Valencia (their last friendly) nor against Swansea United had a clear idea of what they are doing and that forced my hand on the very first day of the season to..
