After have just one team let me down last Saturday, I had just one team let me down on Monday as Dagenham & Redbridge blew a 2-0 lead at home to Sutton.

Games are running out and now that we've reached Easter, we have just a few of these blogs left for the 2016/17 season.

Weekend Accumulator: Everton to continue their push for fifth with another strong home performance

Apr 12th, 2017 at 20:44 Other Football 0 comments

Just a treble last week but it was always going to be an uphill struggle once Barrow were reduced to ten men and whilst they battled back for a 2-2 draw, it wasn't to be and it was another ‘close but no cigar' moment. Once again, I can't come up with anything from League Two, but there's a four-fold to get stuck into, starting with the Good Friday action in …

That spot will be taken by either the Toronto Maple Leafs, Tampa Bay Lightning or New York Islanders and could actually be decided on Saturday night, leaving the Sunday games fairly meaningless. Current …

Weekend Accumulator: Can Tottenham to put pressure on Chelsea with yet another home win?

Apr 7th, 2017 at 08:05 Other Football 0 comments

It definitely felt like April Fool's Day last weekend as the accumulator fell way short with just one winner from the five picks. There's no point dwelling on a poor week though and the action comes thick and fast at this time of the season. League One and League Two have been too tight to call most of the season and I can't find anything I like this weekend so …
