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...

Better to keep your mouth shut, and be thought an idiot…

October 1, 2014

It seems like we go in cycles here with our favourite pundits, lurching between the monosyllabic delights of Michael Owen and the bottle-blond boredom Robbie Savage has perfected, but this season has seen the rise and rise of a new young star in the world of saying really stupid shit in public. Rio Ferdinand was always a fan favourite amongst those of us who liked to see a millionaire looking […]

RWC2015: who will win?

September 30, 2014

With the ballots for tickets closing this week the hype around the Rugby World Cup 2015 is slowly building now and it seems like the English public are ready to take all the competition has to offer with demand high and almost every game likely to be oversold in terms of pure demand. The players in this drama make up a varied cast, from experienced warriors to explosive madmen and […]

Careful with your words

September 29, 2014

Most of the time American sportspeople and their public are very much in favour of the freedom to express their rights and views, but now and then a target is picked that really highlights how varied this ‘law’ is in its application. Cristopher Hitchens was one to point this out before his passing, that the freedom taken away at certain times is really the removal of expression at all, and […]

Read them and weep

September 27, 2014

Lies, damned lies and statistics is a wonderful way of describing how a lot of football fans seem to interact with their favourite sport these days, and in the wake of the Ceefax nostalgia the BBC are trying to engender it is interesting that we’re still a long way from having a fanbase that exclusively watches the game, understands it and appreciates it for what it is in a number […]

Premier League derby day

September 26, 2014

Derbies can be a lot of fun, and sometimes the Premier League fixture list panel, or whatever they’re called, seem to decide that the audience need to spend an entire afternoon in front of the television regardless of their club affiliation. There are games you’d happily miss being broadcast all over the place at the moment, but both the Merseyside and North London derby are must-see games due to the […]

Ryder Cup Odds

September 25, 2014

Well, the Ryder Cup is almost upon us and it’s time to get excited, at least as much as a British golf fan can reasonably allow themselves to be so given that it’s a game for gentlemen, and the whooping Yanks are so very noisy and annoying. Sky television will give us wall-to-wall coverage of an event that allows for such blanket broadcasting which is lovely if you have the […]
