  1. Re: Group C - Colombia v Greece > Saturday June 14th Colombia vs Greece - Colombia over 56.5% possession @ 17/20 with 32Red Sport Looking forward to this one; should be a decent tactical battle. Colombia are a unit that rely and build on having the majority of possession. Pekkerman: "We will maintain our style, our idiosyncrasy, keeping the same idea. The idea in Colombia is always to try to have more possession than the other team." They will keep the ball, slow the pace down, and then in sudden bursts...attack down the flanks. Aguilar starting in place of Guarin will ensure that Colom
  2. I've not been on PL for time and not actually read any of the other threads as of yet so apologies if this has already been brought up. Basically, I think the 'Man of the Match' market can be exploited so much. It's a fans vote and for the first four games played all the obvious players have been voted for, the fans favourites (on the winning teams mind). Neymar (BRA / CRO) Dos Santos (MEX / CAM) Van Persie (SPA / HOL) Alexis Sanchez (AUS / CHI) For example, if you take Uruguay vs Costa Rica tomorrow. Who's the stand out player? Suarez. You can get 5s on him to 'earn' the Man of the Match.
  3. Re: England > Weekend > Skrill North & South Aug 24 I think Boreham Wood are a reasonable price at 3/4 (BetVictor) to get maximum points against Hayes. Hayes have carried on their poor form from the back end of last season and are still getting used to a new boss, Phil Babb. Boreham have strengthened their attack somewhat and should have enough to see off their visitors.
  4. Re: French Open 2013 Apart from Lu being absolutely terrible on clay.
  5. Re: England > Weekend > Northern, Southern & Ryman Prem Apr 6 Bognor are struggling to put a side out, again!
  6. Re: England > Midweek > Non-league Mar 25-28 Havant have added ex-Chelsea player Kieran Weekes to their side along with Argentine defender Juan Cruz Gotta. Both in the squad for this evening's game.
  7. Re: England > Weekend > Northern, Southern & Ryman Prem Mar 9-10 In the local paper here they were saying Bognor have massive injury problems and had to cancel Tuesday's training session due to illness in the squad. Sam Pearce, on loan from Havant, was one of those named injuries.
  8. Re: ACN 2013 - Outrights There is two other players I will be interested in backing for first-goalscorer in individual games are Deo Kanda (DR Congo) and Youssef Msakni (Tunisia). They are both exciting wingers capable of producing moments of magic others can't. I've not seen a lot of Kanda I must admit but Msakni I've seen a lot. He's just signed a big money contract with Lekhwiya in Qatar so he comes into this confident. In warm-up friendlies, everytime he received the ball in the final-third he'd have a pop so he's worth chancing if the odds are favorable.
  9. Re: ACN 2013 - Outrights I promised myself I wouldn't get involved in any outrights but this is far, far too big. African Cup of Nations Top Goalscorer: Tresor Mputu @ 80s with bet365 80/1 is mad value. DR Congo are obviously, naturally, written off but this time round I think they can be real darkhorses. Mbokani will be the focal point of their side but lurking just behind him will be this lad, Tresor Mputu. The man is a machine! He's scored goals wherever he has been however his maverick attitude has stopped him from making any big money moves to Europe. He's exciting and makes defender

  11. Re: JPT > September 4th/5th Exeter x Aldershot - Exeter @ EVS with Coral Exeter are starting to find their feet in League Two and three wins on the bounce have put them in a decent position to challenge for honors. Jamie Cureton and Alan Gow are just a bit too good for this level of 'ball and sides will be up against it when they meet Exeter. The JPT is a competition they generally do well in and Paul Tisdale has said he will play his strongest XI in order to keep the confidence riding through his team. Shots are a decent side but this could be too much for them in a competition I don't
  12. Re: First qualifying round, 2nd leg > 10-12 July Stabaek x JJK - JJK @ 4/1 (Generally available) This is much more of a price play than a solid bet. Stabaek should not be 4/6...not having that at all! I've seen Stabaek play a couple of times now and they either turn up or they don't, for the majority of the time they don't. JJK are two-nil up from the first leg, which they dominated, but with Gruborovics and Wusu they have a decent counter-attacking set-up in place if the chances do arise. Gruborovics is JJK. He pulls the strings, he scores the goals. He turns up, JJK have a better th
  13. Re: First qualifying round, 1st leg > 3-5 July Elfsborg XI vs Floriana: Ellegard; Johan Larsson, Jon Jonsson, Joachim Jorgensen, Andreas Klarstrom; Viktor Claesson, Anders Svensson, Marcus Rohden, Niklas Hult; Lasse Nilsson & Amadou Jawo. Ishizaki and David Elm will start on the bench after knocks in the last game.
  14. Re: First qualifying round, 1st leg > 3-5 July Elfsborg x Floriana - Elfsborg EH -2 @ 4/5 with Paddy Power. Elfsborg are my favourite Swedish 'ballers and they are STRONG at the Boras Arena on their artificial turf. They were whacked 5-1 last time out but they would of had one eye on this match and Champions usually hit back after a loss. Floriana are a youngish side, some haven't even been outside of Malta, and the boss has stated that they will be on a "damage-limitation mission" after being humiliated 9-0 by AEK Larnaca at this stage last year. Although it won't be a humiliation, I t
  15. Re: England v Ukraine June 19th How? Sides that win tournaments are either shrewd or blow the rest way. England know they aren't the best side in the world but know they can beat any side that stands in their way.
  16. Re: So what's with the Spain v Croatia game then? It won't be fixed. Take advantage of that massive Spain price. Gift!!
  17. Re: Ukraine v France - June 15 Be careful mate. From what I've read, Shevchenko will be rested so they can adopt a more defensive approach with an extra midfielder. A defensive-minded 4-2-3-1 with Voronin at the point.
  18. Re: EURO 2012 - Outright Winner & Top Goalscorer Group C Top Goalscorer: Fernando Torres - 6/1 with Paddy Power. I've said it before but Llorente isn't fit, so Fernando Torres starts for me. In a group that looks like it will be lacking a few goals, I'd imagine a Spanish player will dominate the scoring in this group and with the amount of chances the Spanish carve out; Torres will be in with a massive chance of finding a few goals. He's not had the best of season's with Chelsea but he's never looked settled or happy in my opinion. This is his chance to prove a point.
  19. Re: EURO 2012 - Group Winners & Qualification Russia To Qualify x Ukraine Not To Qualify - 6/5 with Paddy Power. I'm not going to bore everyone with everything they've already read but this double is my main play in the group stages. Russia are a popular choice to top a poor Group A amongst punters it seems and I wouldn't disagree. However, I've taken them in a double to qualify. Shirokov's and Dzagoev's midfield runs should be more than enough for their group opponents to handle. Can't see them not progressing from arguably the worst group in the tournament! Ukraine are third favouri
  20. Re: Russia v Czech Republic > June 8 Can I ask how you come to the conclusion I've highlighted in bold?
  21. Re: EURO 2012 - Outright Winner & Top Goalscorer Are you all aware that Llorente is in need of an operation? He's been carrying a knock for a couple of weeks now, and it showed in his last two performances. I can't imagine he'll be that fit to make an impression.
  22. Re: Norway > Tippeligaen > 2012 Stabaek v Lillestrom - Lillestrom @ 13/10 - bet365 I have been opposing Stabaek all season due to them having so many new faces in their side. It takes time to gel. They will get it right sooner rather than later but I'm sticking with my system here. Since their 0-0 draw on the opening day of the season, they've lost nine matches on the spin. They haven't scored at home yet and confidence is low. Lillestrom haven't been much better to be fair but their form has picked up in the past couple of weeks. Two wins and a draw in their last three gives them h
