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...

F1: Fingers crossed

March 6, 2015

With the start of the Formula 1 season proper just a week away, the excitement is nearing fever pitch for most of the fans, although there are a few dark clouds hanging over a sport not unused to the occasion shower of something.

Own up, Jonny Evans

March 5, 2015

“Having woken up this morning I am shocked to have seen the media coverage from last night’s match. I was totally unaware of any spitting incident and had assumed that the issue at the time was with the challenge and his attempted retaliation to the tackle from the floor.” Above are the words of one Jonathan Grant Evans, of Manchester United and Northern Ireland, and those are words that act […]

CWC2015 Update

March 4, 2015

So far the Cricket World Cup in Australia has taught us a few things, the most emphatic of which has been that England are utter pony when it comes to the 50-over version of the sport, much to the delight of the writers assigned to follow them and report on their ‘progress’. Giving English cricket a good kicking is practically a trade in itself these days across various media platforms, […]

Howard’s Waah

March 3, 2015

Incompetence is an interesting concept, and one that can produce a difficult choice for the more forward-thinking among us. On one hand, it normally, if not always seems to be a product of some lack of intelligence as much as a deliberate failure to carry out a task, and it isn’t fair to criticise people for mistake made that they can’t avoid (because they were born that way). On the […]

Sergio Parisse: superhuman

March 1, 2015

For people of a certain vintage, the day Sir Alex Ferguson finally left his position as manager of Manchester United was a strange one, almost akin to losing a family member. Admittedly not everybody loved what Sir Alex had done to English football and some Liverpool fans must have felt like miners waving goodbye to Mrs Thatcher, but his presence and brilliance were undeniable and he left a hole in […]
