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...

Women’s Australian Open: final 4

January 28, 2015

Although we may have seen another early exit for the man who defined tennis in the early to mid-2000s this week, the ladies game has given us a real blast from the past with the older, slightly more likeable Williams sister back in the big time and back at the sharp end of an major championship, or at least she was. As it is, Venus Williams was finally put out […]

An especially bad example

January 28, 2015

If ever there was a phrase that could be an indicator for aging humourlessness in a football fan then ‘role models’ probably fits the bill, especially when it comes to the players. Be it the diving of Ashley Young, the biting of Luis Suarez or even the sheer tedium of a ‘safe’ Michael Owen interview, professional sport have driven some of the men between the white lines to new and […]

Six Nations: Strata

January 27, 2015

Christmas is done, the January sales are on and soon enough the Six Nations will creak back into life, missing a few key protagonists but still full of bile and spite, and to start this off one thing needs to be said. If, IF, all things are equal and the players go and perform as we know they can, then France will win this competition and probably go on to […]

Learning is hard, ft. Lance Armstrong

January 26, 2015

There is a section of popular website Reddit called Not The Onion, a reference to the famous satirical website, that basically takes real headlines that seem as though they could have been written by a comedian rather than a journalist covering real-world events. This week, and in much the same vein as Foxes probably think chicken regulation is too tight, Lance Armstrong was reported to have told the BBC Sport […]

Men’s Australian Open: week 2

January 25, 2015

Every year, the tennis world gets together and compares six-packs at the end of the winter break in Melbourne, and as they swap stories of coaches sacked, supercars bought or maybe just sponsorships got if it wasn’t a great year last time out, and along the way a bit of tennis happens too. The first major of the year can tell you a lot about the condition of the players […]

Middlesbrough and Bradford pull off 200/1 FA Cup double

January 25, 2015

MANCHESTER UNITED are the new favourites to win this year’s FA Cup according to the latest odds from Ladbrokes. With Middlesbrough and Bradford pulling off an audacious double which paid out at 200/1, the odds now favour Louis van Gaal’s men to make it second time lucky against Cambridge and go on to lift the trophy at Wembley. When Jose Mourinho’s side took the lead against Bradford at 2-0 punters […]
