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...

Talent spread

This week has taught us a lot about America, from the fact they care a lot more about one dead guy in Ferguson than they do 100 dead in Pakistan to the simple realisation that their celebs are even more moronic and pointless than our own cretins like Piers Morgan and Russell Brand, and are utterly incapable of engaging with the real world issues surrounding even their own industry (thanks […]

Diving: the modern plague?

December 17, 2014

For a very long time now, diving has been the hot-button topic in internet discussions about the beautiful game, either from fans of the sport who would seek to stamp out the negative influence of ‘cheating’ on the game they love or from people who hate football and seek to diminish it by tarring all players as prima-donnas. As we’ve often remarked upon before, the actual question of simulation vs […]

Nice to be nice

December 15, 2014

It’s fair to say that the BBC Sports Personality of the Year leaves the average sport fan cold and bored most years, especially in this modern age when it is the program on directly before Match of the Day 2, but last night was something of a triumph for what is normally a bit of a joke. In recent years we’ve seen world champions pipped to the prize by has-beens […]

We’re approaching that time of the year when the BBC Sport department has a look down the back of the sofa and shakes Gary Lineker to see if there is any spare change behind his ears as they seek to make the Sports Personality of the Year ceremony as plush and expansive as is humanly possible. The point about the difference between the winners and people with personality has been […]

Liverpool at Old Trafford: Revenge?

December 12, 2014

Down the years there have been many great games between Liverpool and Manchester United, and last season the loss to Liverpool was a massive blow for then-manager David Moyes, who stood on the touchline at Old Trafford and saw a side inspired by Luis Suarez tear through his team like knives through wet bog-roll. We aren’t even twelve months on, but the sale of the Uruguayan to Barcelona and a […]

McLaren/Honda axis of…good?

December 11, 2014

In the words of people who aren’t very good at their job, ‘is this what you wanted from Formula One 2015, people?’ After much deliberation, many stories in the media and maybe even a bit of emotional manipulation by the people involved, via their agents, McLaren today announced officially that they would have the second all-champion line-up to race in the 2015 season, alongside Ferrari’s expensive Raikkonen/Vettel combination, with Jenson […]
