Watford vs West Ham United

Gold for Silva. Mud for Moyes Has there ever been a more baffling managerial love-in than old Marco Silva (Paul Merson and Phil Thompson aside.) Relegation at Hull City (when Paul Clement managed to keep Swansea up comfortably from an equally doom-laden position) followed by an early-season run with Watford, as if the early season hasn’t been filled with all sorts of average clubs going well. Brighton are currently ahead of them in the table. They even lost to Everton! And yet Silva is the new Mourinho. Poor old David Moyes by contrast is a disaster, yet only four years ago, was seen as the natural successor to and by the greatest manager of all time. The football world is... Continue reading...

Prem Preview – 17 November 2017

4 to Watch Burnley vs Swansea City Having already wracked up more than half the points they will require to survive, it will be interesting to see how Burnley manage to incentivise themselves through the winter. There is certainly a sense that Sean Dyche knows he has taken this team as far as it can go, and is looking for an escape route. Swansea have been pretty useless so far, but that can’t last forever. Can it? A shock 2-1 away win is 12/1 with Ladbrokes, and why not indeed say we. Crystal Palace vs Everton David Unsworth wasn’t even under his wife’s thumb when old Roy Hodgson began his managerial career, and the shambles prevalent at Goodison right now... Continue reading...

UEFA World Cup Qualifying Playoffs

4 to Watch (Part 1) Croatia vs Greece Who wouldn’t be enthralled at the prospect of the Greeks entertaining the millions at another World Cup. Exactly. Fortunately enough, Croatia are pretty good at these play-offs having got through them in each of the four times they have needed to reach a major tournament via this route. They finished just two points behind everyone’s favourites Iceland in Group I, and any midfield with Rakitic, Modric and Perisic should get to a Jules Rimet. Greece themselves have reached the last two World Cups through the playoffs, and lost only once in qualifying (to Belgium). One thing worth pointing out in this tie is that no away fans will be allowed in either... Continue reading...

Premiership Preview – 3 November 2017

4 to Watch Stoke City vs Leicester City The flipside of course, of having two absolute belters on Super Sunday, is that it leaves fewer teams to go round the other tv slots. And hence one is left with absolute filth like this to kick off the weekend. A match like this deserves to end 0-0, and at 9/1 with Ladbrokes, that’s exactly how we think it will finish. West Ham United vs Liverpool With Slaven Bilic under pressure, he will be looking at this one as a chance to secure his job until at least the next match… This fixture has traditionally been kind to the Hammers, but they seem to be in a mess right now. Ladbrokes offer... Continue reading...

Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur – 28 October 2017

Prem Preview – 27/10/2017

4 to Watch Liverpool vs Huddersfield Town For those who don’t get off on tales of bonhomie between two German best friends, the build-up to this one has been a little tedious. We expect the match itself to follow a similar pattern, with Klopp surely needing to add some solidity at the back, following the caning he (and his team) have taken in recent days. 1-0 Liverpool is a pretty generous 15/2 at Ladbrokes, so get right on it. Watford vs Stoke City Mark Hughes seems a little bored at Stoke (and they with him), his efforts at keeping them in the top half of the league not yet rewarded with a bumper job as he first envisaged. Once touted... Continue reading...
