Frankel ridden by Tom Queally wins 25/9/2010
Let’s Be Frank, He’s Right Up There - Frankel will go down as one of the best horses we have ever seen in Flat racing and given the fact we are two years on from his final race – which was the QIPCO Champion Stakes at Ascot – we feel as though it’s time to look back on a quite incredible career.

Trained by the late, great Sir Henry Cecil, Frankel was the kind of horse that people felt privileged to watch and he was the kind of horse that people felt privileged to watch and he was unbeaten over 14 starts, something that we might not see again. We first saw him back in 2010 and it wasn’t a surprise to see him... Read on...

The Suarez incident: v3 - This isn’t the first time we’ve had to try and make sense of a bite from Luis Suarez here in the UK, or even here at Bet123 Towers for that matter, and the prevailing opinion around the world of sport psychology seems to be that there is a good chance it won’t be the last either, but if you know the history of the man and his teeth understanding why he’s done what he has gets harder each time.

The first instance of a bite in his career may have been in some ways justified, if not entirely as he was under attack from an opposition player stamping on his toes in an effort to injure him, but since then each incident of jaw locking has seemed less and less explicable, to the point where...

Silverstone and Tweety-pie - The term ‘home race’ is thrown around more liberally in Formula One than football fans and so on would expect, and in reality a large number of teams are based in fairly small part of the UK, a part that Top Gear likes to talk about from time to time, somewhere in some hills near where Jeremy Clarkson lives most likely, although not near enough to lower house prices for him or his influential neighbours.

As a result the Silverstone Grand Prix has become quite an important one for a lot of teams in an unofficial capacity, although there is one man looking to claim this not only as the most important race of his own season but also his proper home race, and that man is... Read on...

Arsenal v Chelsea: 2015 title race?

April 25, 2015

Due to the history of these two clubs and the way Chelsea have so recently and rapidly ascended the ranks of English football, Arsenal versus Chelsea is not quite the derby you’d expect from the two best teams in London, but time will take care of that. The longer Chelsea continue to win major trophies, as they surely will this term, the more Arsenal fans will direct their ire and […]

BBC: News today, more tomorrow

April 24, 2015

On the 30th of April, 1930, the slot normally occupied by the BBC News programme was instead filled with some light piano music after the corporation announced there was ‘no news’ for today, but since then something remarkable has always happened, and there has always been news. It is perhaps more accurate to say something remarkable has happened every day, because it is rare that the programme ever runs over […]

Sex sells, does gender?

April 22, 2015

We know that sex sells, the fact was established long before the poster of the tennis girl or the bloke and the baby, but sometimes it is not the promise of sex, or even possibility of that gets people excited as much as just the variety itself. We must all have been in that situation at least once, where looking around the room reveals it is entirely a male, or […]

2015 Champions League odds

April 21, 2015

The Champions League quarter-finals may have less British representation than the average Olympic 100m finals but that won’t change the amount of interest from these football-mad shores, of that much you can be sure. The lack of English players might be off-putting, but it’s not stopped any fans from following the largely-foreign players that represent our ‘best’ teams like Chelsea and City and in all honesty no team has a […]

Only one winner…

April 20, 2015

The difference between taking part and winning was always traditionally considered a small thing by British people, who valued effort, commitment and bravery alongside victory, mainly due to the fact that it encouraged the serfs to grow up into good soldiers or workers of course, but that’s not the end of the world. In modern sport, especially at the elite level the excitement is supposed to come from the wide […]

Chelsea: worthy winners

April 19, 2015

Despite the fact that they took a step closer to clinching a league title and defeated one of the form sides in the Premier League to do so, a lot of the attention on Chelsea post-their match with Manchester United seemed to focus on the negativity of their play, rather than the positivity of their results, as it were. Luminaries such as Phil Neville and Robbie Savage were less than […]
