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...

Quick decline is hard to arrest

August 3, 2015

As a Liverpool fan, there are a few things that you know you will experience in any given season these days. You’ll see that graph, mocking the early-season optimism that fades faster than the national interest in Nick Clegg did, and possibly hear some jibes from the plastics down south about how bad the club is. By the way, in some ways, plastics seems like an insulting term for the […]

Of Mice and Women

August 1, 2015

There is a runner, and her name is Lennie Waite. As a sports fan, you might be vaguely concerned that you’ve never heard of Ms Waite until today, but really you shouldn’t be, as she is far from noteworthy. Her crowning achievement so far is either seventh at the European Championships or tenth in the Commonwealth Games, and although she has finished above there is other championships her results have […]

Angel’ing for a move

July 31, 2015

Last summer, Manchester United signed Angel Di Maria for a fee very close to that paid by Barcelona for Luis Suarez, and the instant reaction was mixed to say the very least. Those who had seen only his decisive contributions in the Champions League final thought that United had got themselves a world-class attacker to rival Ronaldo and Bale, while others, who had watched the entire match, realised it was […]

The home-grown solution

July 30, 2015

It’s been a fact of English football for a while now that if you want to buy a player, there are certain multipliers that will affect how much you end up paying for them. Ability is normally the first, followed by age, then contract length, but those are standard across the world. When you are in England, though, there is another factor, being dubbed the ‘home grown’ effect in most […]

Ashes 2015: Third test @ Edgbaston

July 29, 2015

We’ve arrived at day one of the third test between England and Australia, and the first, strongest and most solid conclusion we can draw at this point is that batting at Edgbaston is going to be a mite trickier than it was in Cardiff or at Lord’s, where the runs flowed faster than wine at David Warner’s birthday party. In contrast to the indomitable innings Steve Smith played last time […]

Can you buy trophies?

July 28, 2015

Is it possible to buy a title? This is the question on the lips of literally some people this week, after some bloke from Portugal decided to talk crap to the waiting press, and not a new one either football standards. All throughout the eighties Liverpool and United outspent the rest, with mainly the former seeing the benefits, and in the Premier League era the same has held true for […]
