  2. Re: Liverpool v Manchester City > Sunday April 13th Four of the last 5 games at Anfield between the two teams have ended in draws, so that aids your argument. However ...... Liverpool have been ruthless at home and have been scoring goals, much like City has at home. But City are on the road, and though they have beaten Man Utd and Hull on the road, they have drawn with Arsenal and Norwich in their last 4 games. Their defence is similar to Liverpool's in that they can be good but also be shaky, while the midfield should be a great battle. If again, it looked like the Arsenal midfield go
  3. Re: A League Season 2013/2014 Newcastle v Melbourne Victory over 2.5 @ 1.90 bet365 Newcastle v Melbourne Victory over 3.5 @ 3.10 bet365 Their last 6 meetings have seen this game go over and considering the respective line ups here, believe there will be goals again. Newcastle have conceded in each of their last 5 home games, and the Victory has one of the better attacking set of players to score on them, especially as they will have no choice to, if they are to win this game. They are without most of their regular starting back four, with suspensions and national team duty call-ups affectin

  6. Re: Chelsea v Hull City - Sun 18th August Chelsea -2.5 @ 2.75 bet365 Mourinho will be expecting his side to start the season well. Back at Stamford Bridge in front of an adoring crowd, he will be not be happy if they produce a sub-standard performance. Too much quality for Hull to handle and should be an easy one for them. Like Lukaku to be dominant and doubt that the Tigers can contain him
  7. Re: Crystal Palace v Tottenham Hotspur - Sun 18th August Tottenham -1.5 @ 2.85 bet365 While there is no Bale, really like Soldado up front to make Spurs more productive up front, as they have lacked a real finisher in recent years, and with good service from the flanks, believe he can make his presence felt here. Apart from that, Palace will try but the gulf in class will be telling
  8. Re: Swansea City v Manchester United - Sat 17th August Draw @ 3.50 bet365 Tough opening trip for United as they go to Swansea as can see the home side having a good year under Laudrup. Mony looks like a handful and with Michu in behind, they are sure to score some goals this season. Utd's defence is a year older and slower and can see them caught out by teams with pace out wide, which Swansea has. They relied too much on van Persie last year and expect Swansea to try to reduce the service into him.
  9. Re: West Ham v Cardiff City - Sat 17th August West Ham 2.00 @ sportsbet West Ham -1 (EH) @ 3.50 sportsbet Cardiff to get a bit of a shock playing in the EPL especially with the very direct route that Allardyce will play. Carroll should get plenty of service from crosses to cause problems here
  10. Re: West Bromwich Albion v Southampton - Sat 17th August Southampton @ 3.20 bet365 Like Soton to kick on from last season as they played some very good football under Pochettino, and they have bought well with Wanyama and Lovrne coming in to strengthen the side. West Brom have lost Lukaku and Odemwingie from their striker force up front, and hard to see them scoring here
  11. Re: Sunderland v Fulham - Sat 17th August Draw @ 3.40 bet365 Neither side fills you with confidence that they can with this, as Sunderland, with Di Canio there, will have a go but lack some quality especially without Fletcher up front to put the chances away. Fulham are not a side that travel well and will be looking to start their season off with a good point on the road. Some stats (from bbc): Fulham are unbeaten in their last four trips to Wearside (W1, D3). Four of the last 10 games between the sides have ended goalless, while only three of those matches saw both sides scor
  12. Re: Norwich City v Everton - Sat 17th August Draw @ 3.40 bet365 With Moyes there, would have favoured Everton here to edge this, but Norwich look like they may build on last year while Everton may not have the same will to win games with Martinez. Some stats: Norwich have not won their opening league game in any of the last 10 seasons (D5, L5) The Canaries are undefeated in four matches against Everton since their return to the Premier League (one win, three draws). Everton have lost seven of their last 10 opening Premier League games of the season. The Toffees ha
  13. Re: Arsenal v Aston Villa - Sat 17th August Draw @ 5.20 bet365 Arsenal has goals in them, and with a young Villa backline, they have enough quality there to score some goals but doubt that they will have it all their own way. Lambert has had a season with these players who should be better for it, to play his style of football and with Benteke up front, like him to monster the Arsenal backline as I have little confidence in Mertesacker and Koscielny if they are the CBs for them
  14. Re: Fifa Under 20 World Cup Turkey 2013 During the week, quite a few of these under 20's Iraqi players played against Australia in a WC qualifier and gave them a run for their money. Technically very good and may give England a tough time
  15. Re: WC > Asia Qualifiers June 18th Australia very focused for this game with a win guaranteeing a spot in the World Cup while Iraq using this game as practice for what will be for most of the players, a warm up game for the under 20's WC next week. Their two main players did not travel, and they have included mainly under 20's players in the squad.
  16. Japan v Australia over 2.5 @ 2.26 pinnacle Japan v Australia over 3.5 @ 4.00 sportsbet Japan's defence has question marks about it, after their 2-0 loss in the friendly to Buglaria and also losing 2-1 to Jordan in their last qualifier. The Socceroos will look to exploit that, and though their own recent international form is patchy, their is a steely reserve here that this is one game they cannot lose. Expect them to be very much up for this game and in the faces of the Japanese players, and especially who have some skillful attackers, if they get the room, they will tear this ageing Aus
  17. Re: A League > 5 - 7 April Both teams had several chances to score another one Melbourne Victory @ 5.00 sportsbet Central Coast are playing their 4th game in 16 days and after a long trip home from playing in China mid week, and at this time of the season, can see them being flat for this game. Though they did rest some of their key players, they still will have several others backing up from that game, and believe they will have their share of problems trying to contain the likes of Thompson, Rojas and Pain up front, with their pace sure to cause them problems. The Vicotry h
  18. Re: A League > 5 - 7 April Western Sydney v Brisbane over 2.5 @ 2.15 pinnacle First semi final and should be a very good game between two teams that like going forward but also tend to concede goals. While Western Sydney's defence has been solid, they still have found ways to concede goals, and have allowed at least one goal in 9 of their last 12 home games, while Brisbane, with the likes of Berisha and Broich up front, have scored in 5 of their last 6 games, and in 7 of their last 10 away games in the A-League. Conversely, WS have scored in 10 of their 12 home games and Brisbane h
  19. Re: A League > 5 - 7 April Nice pick puntyboy. Victory were below par while Perth battled well. Brisbane @ 2.25 sportsbet Brisbane are starting to peak at the right time and they look a threat to the top two, while Adelaide limped into the semi finals and their form has been average. Not too sure that they are up for this as their body language says they have had enough this season with all the problems they have had.

  21. Re: A League > 5 - 7 April Melbourne Victory -1 (EH) @ 2.88 sportsbet The Victory have the best forward line in the league and expect them to have too much for Perth. Perth limped into the finals with a point in the last round of the season and their general play over the season has been ordinary. While a couple of weeks ago they did beat the Victory in Melbourne, the home side was understrength and those that did play were well below par. Expect them to use that poor performance to keep them focused here and exact some sort of revenge, but all in all, they have far more talent and effec
