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...

Real Madrid v Barcelona preview

October 25, 2014

While this match is one of the biggest in world football and attracting the attention of many European writers, the majority of Spanish fans are not overly bothered about the most expensive game in the world. There are many award winners and world-record transfer fees on the pitch for this game, and one resigned to watching from the stands but it may be that the nation as whole struggles to […]

MotoGP: Sepang 2014

October 24, 2014

 While we will never truly forget the horrific death of Marco Simoncelli, each trip to Malaysia and the subsequent reflection on safety in the paddock that the reminder brings cannot be considered a bad thing and the legacy of the man will hopefully eventually match that of Ayrton Senna in Formula 1, even if Simoncelli never got to express himself on the track in quite the same way Senna did.

It’s not me, Mario

October 23, 2014

Last year Jose Mourinho had some fairly pointed remarks to make about the balance of the English media and the prevalence of ex-Liverpool players across the board making for an unbalanced picture of the game overall. Last night, a collection of ex-Liverpool players proved that for some, attention and money are more important than accuracy, loyalty or quality and simultaneously gave two raised fingers to every fan that cheered for […]

From Russia with hate

October 22, 2014

Last night Manchester City played out a difficult and frustrating 2-2 draw against CSKA Moscow in front of roughly 650 supporters, which seems remarkable for a Champions League tie of that magnitude. In truth the figure was exceptionally high, as the tie was supposed to be played behind closed doors due to constant and persistent racist abuse from the CSKA fans in previous matches both this year and last. After […]

After months of talking and more than a year on from the death of Reeva Steenkamp, her killer and former boyfriend Oscar Pistorius, who was sentenced to five years in prison for shooting and killing his partner through the toilet door of the bathroom in their shared home, and it is sad to write but that might be the best we could have hoped for. South Africa is a brutal […]

Liverpool v Real Madrid preview

October 20, 2014

There are some games that you look at and think they could go either way, but Liverpool vs Real Madrid is not one of those, at least on the face of it. When Real are missing the most expensive player in football history through injury and can still start with Ronaldo, who has more goals than the entire Liverpool squad combined this season it is pretty clear there is a […]
