Premier League 2014/15 ante-post preview 1 - early views on the lower profile markets
by tbuckley on 20 Jul at 22:55
Premier League 2014/15 ante-post preview 1 - early views on the lower profile markets September 1st is the day when the summer transfer window has shut and the day when will finally know how each of the 20 Premier League squads will look making that the first proper time that we can confidently and accurately judge how teams are likely to perform this year in terms of the major outright markets. Until that day players will be coming and going to the various squads and it would only really be guesswork at best to give confident predictions now on the Outright markets and I'll wait at least until a week before the Premier League season starts to look at those markets. The good news for those of us that enjoy looking into the betting markets for football then there are loads of..

by jimmywomble on 22 Jul at 21:50
Put-in My Roubles on Bremner in Russia Sport often gets put in the political spotlight and this week could be no different as the European Tour heads over to Moscow and all issues around Russia and the Ukraine. (Surely the Russian President has the best golf name for a world leader, Mr Putt-in.) The M2M Russian Open has flipped between the main & Challenge Tours and this year sees the second year it is on the main tour and the fifth year running it will be at the Tseleevo Golf & Polo Club near Moscow. Winner last year was Michael Hoey who won on his debut here, but won’t defend as he injured his ankle last week in Hoylake. It will be an early start in UK terms as this will get underway around 4am Thursday the..
Who else sees Arsenal as the Premiership value selection?
by botev1921 on 25 Jul at 00:27
When I was writing about Arsenal and their slim chances of winning the league in late January, I pointed out several very serious issues and problematic areas that would eventually see them drop to 4th, which ended up being a very accurate prediction. Many were thinking that one Mesut Ozil is the only missing piece for the Gunners to have a coherent title challenge, but once injuries hit and the schedule turned deadly, they faded like a summer rain in Southern Italy. To be honest, with the transfer history of Wenger and all his ‘’to stay or not to stay’’ drama of 2013, I was sceptical there will be much improvement, but as the summer transfer period progresses, I start to feel a much more serious Arsenal team is being built and the great start of the last campaign might..
A Fans View of Everton
by undertherobe on 24 Jul at 20:03
It doesn't seem right that the new season is almost upon us. The time since Liverpool completely fluffed their lines against Chelsea and Crystal Palace has flown by so quickly, in part due to a World Cup that promised so much with it's exciting start but delivered very little (for me anyway). So, with another season just a handful of preseason games away, what of my team, Everton? Second Season Syndrome Second season syndrome is a term often bandied about in football and usually relates to a recently promoted team who are entering the second season at their current level having had a decent first season. Whilst Everton have been Premier League ever presents, they are entering their second season under new manager Robert Martinez and one of the big questions in 2014/15 is can Martinez replicate the success he had in his..
