West Ham United Pre-Season
by redhammer on 02 Aug at 18:37
Ins and Outs Well the first person to go at Upton Park in the summer was Sam Allardyce, and from majority of Hammers. YAS!! The football in the first 6 months was unreal, pace, creativity, a winning and entertaining brand of football. But as soon as Nolan and Carroll was fit, Downing, arguably the best player in that team, was moved to accommodate his skipper and Sakho and Valencia were rotated and pushed wider to allow Big Andy the central role. And the football was dire. Long ball after long ball and zero threat. Opposition keepers could have had a cup of tea at some stages. When were were winning it was 'park the bus' tactics. The board didn't leave anyone guessing and within minutes off the final whistle on the last game, Hammers fans celebrated. In came Slaven Bilic, not everyone's..

Who’ll win the 2015/16 Skybet League Two?
by bobslay13 on 29 Jul at 22:31
Who’ll win the 2015/16 Skybet League Two? 2 weeks to go until the first round of league fixtures in the 2015/16 season get underway; a good time to start trying to predict who’s going to win the divisions of the Football League. Many teams are still pretty under-staffed but most are starting to take shape and have the spine of their side sorted so I think we can make pretty logical predictions now. I’ll be looking at League Two in the next week or so but this episode I’m focusing on League One. League Two So, who are the main competitors? I’m not going to look at every side in the league. Nor am I looking at who might clinch promotion because that means a chunky review of at least half the division; rather I’m going to look at a handful of teams..
MLB Review - We 01.08.15
by undertherobe on 02 Aug at 12:32
So the trade deadline has passed and in this week’s blog, I take a look at two trades that slipped under the radar and why one team’s lack of action could cost them down the stretch. There’s also a look ahead to a big week for the Chicago Cubs and another three pitchers to watch.... Picks Review Zack Greinke’s seemingly never ending scoreless streak finally came to an end on Sunday as the Mets scored in the 3rd inning before adding another in the 6th. Although the Dodgers fought back against the Mets bullpen, they eventually went down 3-2 in the 10th. Greinke was outdueled by the Mets own star, Jacob deGrom although he still pitched well and finished with 7 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 3 SO. John Lackey pitched well on Wednesday night, allowing just two hits but unfortunately he was..

by Ralfie1982 on 02 Aug at 20:40
Premier League Week 1 Every year for as many years as I can remember the 1st week of the premier league and other leagues for that matter have ripped my coupon to pieces every which way you look, but having been a member of OLBG for just over 12 months and watch some real experts show some decent tipping I am determined to try and put that to good use. Below I have listed all the Premier League games for week 1 and then where I think there might be any signs of a safer bet.

Champions League Qualifying Rounds - Rising & Falling Teams
While the Champions league is still at an early stage, I personally consider those early rounds much more interesting than the actual group stage. For one, the teams involved are much more exotic and it is really rare to have...
