Quick Roundup.

Another cracking weekend of sport, it went like this. Kauto Star back and winning, Ruby Walsh back and not back after breaking a leg at the same meeting. Goldikova doing the business but Zenyatta what happened there? Jockey or horses fault? Lots of tears and apologies from all sides.
Paul Hanagan after a great tussle with Richard Hughes becomes the Champion Flat jockey. For a lot of the season he has been racing up and down the country and living out of a suitcase. Well done Paul now try to sit still and relax.
I shall be looking out for Peter Toole and Julie Burke this winter, two up and coming jocks.

Federer wins in Switzerland, Ferrer wins in Spain is there a pattern here? Maybe this week Monfils will win in France? Italia win the Fed Cup against the USA. Shame the Williams sisters didnt turn up but they are a law unto themselves. Heather Watson wins the biggest title of her career with victory in the Tevlin Challenger, an ITF tournament in Toronto, Canada. Is she Britains next Wimbledon hope ?

The Eagles win (Hooray) even if they do nearly throw it away with a ridiculous late 15 yard penalty for roughing the passer. The Ravens win(Hooray) and keep my NFL bets going strong.

Cricket ,Pakistani wicketkeeper Zulqarnain Haider has gone missing in Dubai, team manager Intikhab Alam has said.The 24-year-old's disappearance comes ahead of Monday's deciding one-day international against South Africa.Haider reportedly received a threatening message after helping Pakistan to victory in Friday's fourth one-day international.

Liverpool, Man City win ,Arsenal lose, Man Utd scrape home, have we got a decent title race this season?

I enjoy reading Green All Over Blog and Cassini has some great results concerning draws and ratings that he gives to each team. Now I have an interesting stat that I noticed a couple of weeks ago while I went through lots of European Football Data. This season, backing teams over 7/1 with Bet 365 which would probably be about 10% more on Betfair you would be showing to £ 100 stakes a handsome profit in the region of £ 7k, apart from Belgium where they have had twenty one losers in a row at last count.

In the Premiership there have been 16 losers and 4 winners giving a profit of +31 points, the winning games were Spurs/Wigan 12/1, Arsenal/WestBrom 14/1, Liverpool/Blackpool 10/1 and finally Arsenal/Newcastle 11/1. The Big leagues are Spain +18, Germany +16,Italy -9 and France +11.

In Spain Barca lost at home to Hercules who were 33/1 with Bet 365, I wonder what they were on Betfair. Anyway food for thought and it shows that this year there's a bit more competition, or maybe not?

  1. A feeling I've held since the 2006 World Cup is that during the post-WC season, the dominant teams ( with dominant players ) struggle a little, with more strange results following.
