City Lacked Chelsea's Consistency
by garethp1981 on 28 Jun at 17:34
Thus far since the end of the season I have written blogs reviewing the football season in five countries. These five countries, Germany, Spain, Italy, France and Portugal are all part of the top six leagues in Europe according to UEFA (I picked the top six because numbers seven and eight are Russia and Ukraine, leagues in which have little interest). Since I have looked at five countries, and I am covering the top six there is obviously one missing, and this country is England. The English league is the second highest UEFA-rated league behind Spain and is the one most often tipped on by OLBG members. The Premier League is also the league in which I have the most interest and it is the one about which I have the most to say, so it is the one I..
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..
Wimbledon 2015 - ATP Draw Preview
by botev1921 on 26 Jun at 17:53
Once again I am off to provide the most comprehensive quarter by quarter preview of yet another Grand Slam and while the ATP part of these events has grown to be somewhat dull and predictable, few really saw Stan Wawrinka winning Roland Garros, so there is some value out there if only we can find it early enough. The grass court season, for being as short as it is, actually offers some very specific angles to work with when we analyse draws and match-ups. It is common knowledge that big servers, credible net play and most of all stable return play a much bigger part of the grass court strategy and I believe we must combine those three when we try to pick a potential surprise package to upset the top 10, who once again are expected to dominate at..
Betting Approach - what do you think the most common betting mistakes are ?

Betting Approach - what do you think the most common betting mistakes are ? With Royal Ascot now finished and with the domestic football season not starting until August, right now seems a very good time to take a break from focusing on betting directly and look at different aspects of punting, to see how we do things, what we've learned and what we do wrong. I say 'we' because I'm most definitely a punter and have been for 20 years legally but admittedly a few more that were not legal, don't blame me by the way, the bookies at Doncaster never asked me for me ID and happily took my money, and so did I in return. Yes I'm a punter at heart and I've always been fascinated by how other punters approach their betting, what bets they do, what markets..
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..

Ashes 2015, England to tame "The Backyard Bashers" with their own scrappers.
by Randy Rann on 28 Jun at 13:57
Forthcoming Ashes Series has all the hallmarks of a classic, but England can scrape home in what promises to be a real dog-fight. Well we're not too far away from the First Ashes Test in Cardiff and I for one can't wait for the action to start. I still can't believe it's 10 years since that brilliant 2005 series here where Andrew "Freddie" Flintoff brought out the kid in me when he went close to taking over from Sir Ian Botham as my cricketing hero. The 1981 Ashes Series where Botham put in Superhero performances after being sacked as Captain got me hooked on this great game and Test cricket in particular. However that's all in the past and new heroes are to be made this summer as it's time for fresh faces to step up to the mantle and put..
