Gameweek 3 - Tottenham vs Liverpool

Aug 30th, 2014 at 07:27 ibfm23 on Other Football 0 comments 695 views

6 points, 5 goals scored, 0 goals conceded and 2 London derby wins; Pochettino could not have wished for a better start at White Hart Lane. This notwithstanding, the Sunday lunchtime clash with Liverpool will be the first real test of his short tenure and the result will say a lot about his side's credentials for a top four finish. For Liverpool on the other hand the trip to London is …

Portsmouth v Newport Division two football

Aug 29th, 2014 at 19:51 meoldmate on Other Football 7 comments 787 views

LEAGUE TWO FOOTBALL Portsmouth v Newport Portsmouth look to be revitalising this season, with three wins from four matches and the other being a draw. Could be things to come for Pompey this season, after doom and gloom for several years, where they have fallen from the top tier of football to league division two and nearly conference football, several good results at the end of last season pulled them clear of the …

Live English Football - Aug 30th & 31st

During the World Cup I wrote a series of blogs looking at trying to find a bet for each game at evens or better with the aim of looking away from the more traditional win & total goal markets. Despite making a loss, it seemed to prove quite popular and it certainly got me thinking more in terms of how I approach my football betting. With over 100 markets …

Everton v Chelsea - more shared points for toffee's?

Aug 29th, 2014 at 17:49 fairfranco on Other Football 3 comments 518 views

Last season Everton drew their first 3 matches before defeating Chelsea with a 1-0 win that kick started Martinez progression with his Everton side and saw them find an excellent run of form. This season looks pretty similar with Everton once again drawing with a promoted side (Leicester instead of Cardiff) and then drawing against Arsenal much more difficult than last seasons other 2 draws. The Arsenal game was a …

Manchester City vs Stoke City - Match Preview It would be fair to say since Stokes arrival into the Premier League, our away form has never been good, especially when visiting Manchester. We're yet to pick up any points from either Manchester club when on the road. We did however manage a rather lucky draw in the cup once where a trademark Rory Delap throw in found Ricardo Fuller in front …

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE DRAW - English teams review

Aug 28th, 2014 at 21:13 botev1921 on Other Football 1 comments 1396 views

There is no better thing to do on a hot summer evening than watch the Champions league draw ceremony and immediately start thinking about the vast possibilities for profits based solely on the perception of “groups of death” or “easy rides to the knock-out stage”. Of course, the draw itself is important and should be the very first thing to consider before we draw any conclusions on who has the …

Man City v STOKE CITY: Betting Preview

Aug 28th, 2014 at 21:10 trouserdog78 on Other Football 2 comments 755 views

When you first get promoted to the Premiership, games against teams like Manchester City can have you practically ruining your pants with excitement. You know that you're going to get trounced, but the novelty of even being there is enough to get you buzzing. However, when entering your seventh consecutive top-flight season, a trip to the Etihad is about as appealing as receiving a prostate examination from Pat Jennings. Even …

The Southampton Perspective: West Ham, Transfers, and Millwall Victory

Aug 28th, 2014 at 09:54 danbradley on Other Football 0 comments 702 views

The Southampton Perspective: West Ham, Transfers, and Millwall Victory Since my last blog piece the Saints have played twice: the first game was a drab 0-0 against West Brom, with neither side creating much at all and chances at a premium, and the second was a comfortable win over Millwall in the League Cup on Tuesday. The reward for that victory is a daunting trip to the Emirates to face Arsenal …

The Foxes v The Gunners Arsenal travel to King Power Stadium having held a record with Leicester of the Highest Scoring Draw in English Football when securing ''6 - 6'' Draw in the old 1st Division in April 1930 (only matched by Charlton 6 - 6 Middlesbrough in 1960), But obviously many things have changed for both teams in the 85 years that have since gone by, Suprisingly though Leicester hold …
