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...

Bodyline, bouncers and safety in cricket

November 26, 2014

At least eighty years have passed since the Bodyline tour of Australia undertaken by the England team led by Douglas Jardine, and this week we had a stark reminder of how little safety in cricket has moved on in that time. Phil Hughes, an Australian batsmen of some talent and repute was struck on the head by a bouncer whilst playing at the Sydney Cricket Ground and is now in […]

George Best: best forgotten

November 25, 2014

“If I’d been born ugly, you never would have heard of Pele” Nine years ago to this very day, one George Best shuffled off this mortal coil after an eventful life that many fans still like to glorify to this day, but when you shine the cold hard light of day on his achievements, the glory was short lived and the quagmire more difficult to escape. For his fans, be […]

Rugby: Learn from the best

November 24, 2014

So, this weekend there were world titles decided and momentous results in the world of the Barclays Premier League, but in rugby union all remained stable despite the best efforts of New Zealand, and to some extent Wales, to give the waiting public a surprise result. After seeing England throw away a chance to beat an under-strength All Blacks team Wales were handed an even more enticing opportunity against as […]

Lewis Hamilton: world champion, again

November 23, 2014

In the end, no amount of messing around with the points, calendar or anything else could prevent Lewis Hamilton from becoming a double world champion, and the only man on the grid to have done so in two different cars, but the remarkable story that culminated in Abu Dhabi today began almost two years ago now, under less positive auspices. The race itself was pretty much the opposite of a […]

F1 decider in the desert

November 22, 2014

Well, we’re finally there, finally at the end of the road with the Formula 1 World Championship for 2014 in mind, and there is going to be a Mercedes champion on Sunday evening. The makers of priapic, ugly mid-European saloons for management types have already sewn up the constructors title and know it can only be one of their drivers taking the title at the end of the day. Due […]

Arsenal v Man Utd, 22/11/14

November 21, 2014

These two teams can always field some quality players when it comes to a big game, but there is a sense this term that both are rather more stacked in attacking areas than at the back after spending heavily and strangely over the summer break. Arsenal turned down a world-class attacking midfielder to sign a wing-forward whilst simultaneously trying to convert wingers into forwards or midfielders, while United broke their […]
