  1. A couple of days worth of fixtures released by Bet365 now so here's a chance to look at what's coming up. A few teams such as Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Lancashire, and Worcestershire heavily fancied but are they worth backing? I'll try to get 1-2 previews written over the next couple of days to look into these odds. In the meantime, feel free to post any thoughts up based on the results so far.
  2. Blackpool vs Fleetwood It's derby day up on the north west coast as mid-table League One sides Blackpool and Fleetwood clash in this 3pm kick-off later today at Bloomfield Road. Can either side get out of this winless rut they are in or will Joey Barton resort to punching Terry McPhillips in the face in the tunnel after the game? Blackpool have put the hard days of Oyston Family ownership firmly behind them but the results have started to drift off a bit lately. The club are in 10th place and the play-offs are not on the cards any more. However, 4 league games without a win is a run that the players will want to end as soon as possible. Fleetwood are located just 23 minutes drive from Blackpool. Only AFC Fylde play their football closer to the famous seaside resort. Barton's men are 11th in the table and the plans for next season are already in motion. The Fishermen are without a win in 3 league games so they will also be keen to get back on a positive track. Considering both clubs are located on the beach and are playing like they've already got to the beach maybe it would be more appropriate if they just set up the pitch on the beach! It's hard to see either time mustering the motivation levels to get the win here. Neither side will be disappointed by a draw and nobody wants to risk injury this close to the summer when there's nothing to play for. Yes, it's a derby game but is it really that big a deal? I could be wrong but I think a draw would suit both sides.

  3. Wigan vs Preston The Championship action is relentless here and it's no fun for teams involved in the thick of a relegation dogfight or play-off battle like these two sides. Wigan take on Preston at the DW Stadium in a 3pm kick-off today and there are issues at both ends of the table to resolve. Wigan are 20th in the table after their heroic 2-1 win against title chasing Leeds on the weekend. Paul Cook's side might already have done enough being 5 points clear of Rotherham in the final relegation spot. However, they'll want one more win at least to ensure the job is done. Preston have continued to defy the odds this season with a late play-off push. Alex Neil has experienced promotion from the Championship before with Norwich. As his former club look set to once again go up the Lilywhites still have an outside shot of the play-offs. Admittedly, it's a slim chance with North End in 9th place and 7 points behind 6th placed Middlesbrough but a win here could move them to within 4 points of the top six with 2 games remaining. My concerns here are double sided. I'm wondering how much energy the Wigan players will have after giving so much with just 10 men on Friday against Leeds. On the other side, I'm not sure how well-equipped Preston will be with so many injuries. I think they have up to 8 first team players missing? The stats throw up some interesting reading. Wigan are without a win in four league meetings with Preston. That last win came back in 2004. That being said, Preston's last victory at Wigan was way back in 2000. It seems Preston don't like travelling in April either having lost 5 of their last 7 away games played during this month. It's a tough one to call but I think I have to go with my gut and think that both teams could cancel each other out. It would realistically boost Wigan's survival hopes and technically at least end Preston's play-off hopes but I think the tired legs and injuries will make this an error-ridden affair.

  4. The French football fixtures this week are slightly extended because Ligue 2 has some catch-up games coming at us this midweek. I know interest in the Ligue 1 and 2 matches is dying down now but there is still so much to play for in the French second tier. Metz and Brest are still firmly in the midst of a title battle. Half of the teams in the league still harbour promotion play-off aspirations. The relegation dogfight is also wide open. Let us know if you're placing any bets on these thrilling games this week. @Pep004, @sodabrab, @giraldi, @Magic0024, @allthethings, @DrO, @malabgd, @Xcout, @betcatalog, @sajtion, @FCNA, @silver fox, @thinkpink63, @TOTTI3, and @canaries91, what are you guys betting on?

  6. Easter Monday delivers a full League One and Two schedule but we've only got a single Scottish Championship game from north of the border. I appreciate it's a fast turnover from the weekend's matches but any input on tips for bets to place would be hugely welcomed!

  8. Cardiff vs Liverpool OK, so @Tiffy's Brighton put a spanner in the works by grabbing a draw against Wolves. It's now over to my Cardiff side to try and pull off the near impossible by getting a win against Liverpool here to get back level on points with the Seagulls in this 4pm kick-off from the Cardiff City Stadium this afternoon. Cardiff kept their thin hopes of staying up in the top flight alive with the 2-0 win over Brighton in midweek. Neil Warnock has played down his team's chances of winning here. I mean, understandably so, our last victory over the Reds came back on 19th December, 1959. That was Bill Shankly's first game as Liverpool manager. We have lost 5 on the bounce against Liverpool in all competitions since then but one of those was the Capital One Cup Final defeat on penalties after a 2-2 draw. What a bloody emotional game that was! I seem to remember being quite drunk and getting topless behind the goal when Ben Turner scored that equaliser. That's another story anyway! Liverpool need to win here to leapfrog their title rivals Manchester City into first place. Jurgen Klopp's side have looked nervy over recent weeks. The good news for the travelling side is that they have no new injury concerns and will be relishing this latest challenge having scored 13 goals in their last 3 meetings with Cardiff. The stats don't show any favour towards Cardiff here at all. The major concern is the absence of Harry Arter through injury but also the potential injury of Aron Gunnarsson. If the Icelandic stalwart is out then we're screwed. We can cope without Arter but not him and Gunnarsson. My beloved Bluebirds have only won 2 of their last 8 home league games. We pushed Chelsea and Arsenal close at home but we were thoroughly destroyed by Manchester United, Manchester City, and Tottenham so our performances against the top sides might have been mixed but have brought no points. Sadly, I can't see us getting anything here. We gave Liverpool a good game up at Anfield before eventually succumbing to their attacking prowess. Maybe it'll be different in front of a fervent Cardiff City Stadium but I think Liverpool will have enough to win this game by 2 or 3 goals in the end. Our fate will be decided against Fulham and Crystal Palace, not necessarily in this game. Liverpool HT/FT @ 1.70 with Sportingbet Anytime Scorer: Mohamed Salah @ 1.91 with BetVictor
  9. Yeah, that is sad. Any news on where you might be playing? Even suggestions you'd be at St Andrew's?
  10. Napoli vs Atalanta Ah, Atalanta, my old foe. We meet again. The game that we're reviewing this weekend is the Monday night match between high-flying Napoli and Champions League qualification hopefuls Atalanta who meet in a 6pm kick-off at the Stadio San Paolo. Can the home side recover from their shock exit to Arsenal in the Europa League in midweek? Napoli suffered only their second home defeat of the season across all competitions on Thursday night. It was a result not many people saw coming and it left Carlo Ancelotti's side searching for answers at full-time. The 2nd placed side in Serie A must pick themselves up to get back to winning ways and solidify that runners up spot in the league behind Juventus. Defeat would gift the title to Juventus but a win would mean the league leaders would need to win their game to seal the championship. Atalanta are still in there fighting. Gian Piero Gasperini's men are 6th in the table but it's very tight. On the one hand, they're only 2 points behind 4th placed AC Milan who currently hold that elusive last Champions League qualification spot. On the other hand, they're only 3 points ahead of 8th placed Torino. It really could swing either way with 6 league games remaining. The home side's league form has been patchy recently. It's only 3 wins, 2 draws, and 2 defeats for Napoli in their past 7 league matches. Perhaps more worrying is that it's only 1 win in their last 5 competitive games. Have the wheels come off Ancelotti's season? It's a complete contrast for the visitors. They come to Napoli unbeaten in 7 league matches. OK, so they have drawn their last two league games and have failed to score in both but they're proving tough opponents to beat. Gasperini's men have the 4th best away record in Serie A so this is far from a given. I think purely because I dislike how Atalanta constantly screwed me over last season I fancy a bit of revenge. Napoli are still a classy outfit and have had an impressive season by all accounts. It's a shame their form is getting inconsistent but I think they will want to bounce back after Thursday night and win for their fans at home.

  11. Hertha Berlin vs Hannover OK, so we're not exactly going for the creme de la creme this weekend in the Bundesliga. We take a look at a game between the two most out-of-form sides in the league when Hertha Berlin play Hannover in a 5pm kick-off this Sunday afternoon at the Olympiastadion in Berlin. Hertha Berlin are positioned in 11th place but any hopes they held of competing for a potential push for European competition next season have been destroyed by recent form. It's now 5 defeats on the bounce for Pal Dardai's side. It's also just 1 win in their last 7 home games. Luckily, they're playing a team that are performing even worse than them. Hannover are rock bottom of the Bundesliga with just 14 points. Thomas Doll's team are 7 points adrift of safety with just 5 league games left to play. Time is running out and survival hopes are fading by the week. It's been 8 defeats in a row in the league and an even worse run of losing 12 of their last 13 league games. The bookies are clearly fancying a home win here. Hertha Berlin might be in a real slump right now but Hannover are too far gone. It's hard to see how Hannover can enter this game with any confidence when they've failed to win a single game away and have only picked up 4 points on the road all season. This could be another nail in the relegation coffin for the away side.
