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...

England v Lithuania: Kane and able?

March 26, 2015

Listening to Alan Shearer on Match of the Day last weekend, which this writer was forced to do on iPlayer due to the vagaries of signal strength in the South East, was an experience that many fans will have felt little surprise at as the former Newcastle man went through his usual routine of ‘analysis’. There were clichés, obvious mistakes and the constant references to ‘getting tight/determination/pressure on the ball’ […]

The Neuer Sensation

March 25, 2015

This weekend, while rugby went mad and Steven Gerrard did his best Diego Costa impression at Anfield to draw a line under his time as a successful Liverpool player once and for all there was a bit of a game going on in Germany, featuring a team from Madrid, or maybe Barcelona. Bayern Munich may well be a German team with a German spine and some extremely German key players, […]

Stevie Gone?

Steven Gerrard

As you know if you like, well, sport, ‘impact sub’ has long been a staple of the commentator’s vocabulary across multiple team games, and for good reason too. Ever since the introduction of in-game replacements people like Sebastian Chabal, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Steve Kerr have made names for themselves by coming into a game at a crucial time and making a match-winning contribution, normally by improving the attack of […]

Stuff the suits

March 24, 2015

There comes a time in the evolution of every life where the shorts must go into the wardrobe on all but private occasions and the suit evolves from something to wear to weddings and funerals into the outfit for all seasons, which is nice, really. Few men look bad in a well-cut suit regardless of their age, or at least as bad as they would look in alternative garb, but […]

Liverpool v Manchester United, 22/3/15

March 21, 2015

There was a time when Liverpool or Manchester United could provide a team to beat anyone in Europe and this game was a genuine contender for the biggest in world club football, but the influx of fuel money from morally questionable sources over the last decade or so has seen that change, as has the initial move United made to dethrone Liverpool after a period of sustained overspending was ended […]
