  1. My brother plays inter-county football and he usually throws some good advice my way on who to back. Couldn't find anything else on here so I thought I'd start a thread. Westmeath v Carlow 5/2/17 14.00 Westmeath have been relegated 3 years running from Division 1 to Division 4. They are definitely too strong for division 4 and are up against a Carlow side that are entrenched in Div 4. Westmeath with home advantage should win this handy enough but the 1/6 odds with Paddy Power aren't very appealing. The handicap of -5 point's at 10/11 is a bit more like it and Westmeath are fancied
  2. Re: Spain > Liga de Fútbol Profesional > Sunday 24 August 2014 Good stuff senk :ok
  3. Re: Penalties AWARDED statistics Try livescore. It gives the match stats and shows when a pen has been missed or scored.
  4. Re: World Cup Europe Qualification > 10th September Strange goings on with Paddypower. Both teams to score No was 1.33 (1/3) when I posted. An hour or so later it went out to 1.11 (1/9) but is now back in to 1.2 (1/5) which is still a great price??? Also one quick question. No Faroe Islands goal scorer is 1.33 (1/3) but both teams to score No is 1.28 (2/7) so do own goals count? Why the price difference? Cheers.

  6. Re: Antepost > Premier League 2013/14 > Winner I didn't make the comparison between Kompany and Rio, I was replying to a post. I also agree that Toure would be a big loss but not as much as Van Persie to United in my opinion.
  7. Re: Antepost > Premier League 2013/14 > Winner You're making a prediction that Zaha is going to be exceptional. His form for large parts of last season with Crystal Palace suggests otherwise and it is really a matter of wait and see. Also next season might be a season or two too early for him. Kagawa or Hernandez are not regular starters but I do recognize the importance of Hernandez in particular. Really good player. As I said above I'm not saying United are a bad team, just that a fair bit of work will have to be done in my opinion replacing certain players. I certainly wont be back
  8. Re: Antepost > Premier League 2013/14 > Winner Yes, but the spine of their team are all at nice ages. Toure is probably the oldest and he just turned 30 so he has a few years left in him yet.
  9. Re: Antepost > Premier League 2013/14 > Winner Only De Gea and Rafael on that list are part of the current spine of the team. Hernandez appears to do his best work from the bench. And a lot of that list are unproven. Every club has young talent coming through but what makes that group any better than what other clubs are bringing through? Fact of the matter is that a lot of the core will need to be replaced in the near future.
  10. Re: Antepost > Premier League 2013/14 > Winner Just a couple of more points. Van Persie scored 26 league goals out of a total of 86. That's 30.23%. Suarez scored 20 out of 71 which is 28.16%. No-one else comes close so they are over-reliant on him. United conceded 43 goals. Man City (34), Arsenal (37), Chelsea (39) and Everton (40) all conceded less. Even Liverpool (43) conceded the same. So their defense is no great shakes in fairness. There's a strong chance Rooney will have to be replaced although he was very average last season. I'm not for a second saying they're a bad side but
  11. Re: Antepost > Premier League 2013/14 > Winner The only reason I said United without Van Persie was to show how weak I feel the rest of the squad is. Chelsea or City could lose any individual player and I don't think it would affect them the same as United losing RVP, because they both have stronger squads in my opinion. And Rio Ferdinand, who had a good year, was not the best CB in the PL last year and besides the point he will turn 35 next season and will have to be replaced relatively soon. Carrick had a very good season but turns 32 soon. Kompany might have been pants last sea
  12. Re: Antepost > Premier League 2013/14 > Winner I agree Pellegrini is unproven in the Premier League but so were Wenger, Mourinho, Ancelotti etc. and they didn't do too bad.. That wasn't really my point though. I was looking at the strength of their respective squads and I honestly don't see United's as being as strong as some of you see it. In my opinion it was one of the weakest United sides to win the league. Put it this way, how many on here would back United if Van Persie was out. Not many I would imagine and what does that say about the strength of their squad? Their midfiel
  13. Re: Antepost > Premier League 2013/14 > Winner Can't agree with you there Jase if you think Moyes has been left with the best squad in England. Far from it in my opinion. Their defense is ageing. Evra is 32, Ferdinand 34 and Vidic 31. Granted Rafael is a really good player and will more than likely get better. Johnny Evans is a decent squad player. Smalling seems to have regressed a lot and Jones is a Jack of all trades, master of none. De Gea looks a great shot stopper but can be a bit of a flapper at times. Moving into midfield. Giggs is an OAP, Scholes retired. Valencia also i
