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...

Joe Root: the future

May 22, 2015

Optimism greeted the players as they strode onto the green, green grass of Lord this morning, even those in England shirts, but after an hour or so of play they must have wished they were back in front of the journalists talking about South African peanuts. Cook, Ballance, Bell and Lyth all fell to what was some wonderful bowling from the New Zealand attack, leaving England at something like 30-4 […]

Transfer of power

May 21, 2015

The season is not quite over yet, with one of Newcastle and Hull still set to be relegated and the matter of Europa League places still to be decided, but it seems as though the Raheem Sterling story has marked the official beginning of the ‘summer transfer window’, as denoted by the blooming of rumours on football websites and pages. At this point in time there is still some speculation […]

Hamilton signs, exists in his own right

May 20, 2015

There is an old cartoon that for the life of me I can’t remember the name of, but the moral message contained in it was that appearances are not always what they seem. In the cartoon, this was represented by the choice between a big red apple, filled with apparent juicy promise but also clearly modified, and a small, green apple that represented the ‘right’ option. As it turns out, […]

Sterling work, Brendan

May 19, 2015

Ah, Raheem Sterling, then darling of the presses, or at least those bits that prefer conjecture and gutter-trawling to factual assessments and honest research. The young man has only been in the Liverpool squad a couple of years, but in that time he’s already attracted more negative publicity than many men do in a lifetime of sport, and this week we’ve seen the culmination of a story that has been […]

Wanna buy some football?

While we’ve been inundated with the biggest flood of shit Kevin Pietersen and his worthless twitter friends can muster over the last ten days or so, there have been some real news stories breaking around the world of sport. Barcelona have won another league title, which is no real surprise at all, and a couple of young men with little to no guidance made a mistake and are now being […]

Heroes: In sickness and in health

May 17, 2015

It isn’t easy being famous, and sometimes we are guilty as a sporting public of expecting too much from men and women who are only really trained to do one thing, albeit to an incredibly high level, and normally a physical thing at that. You can talk all you want about ‘footballing intelligence’, ‘race craft’ and ‘game sense’ all you want, but these are all really just euphemisms for the […]
