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...

Not everyone does it

August 22, 2014

We should probably be writing about the Belgian Grand Prix today, or maybe some rugby union seeing as the best teams in the world are currently competing for the Rugby Championship down under but just as the content team passed the Formula 1 article up for the writers to take credit for something really amazing happened that just could not be ignored. After it emerged yesterday that Malky Mackay is […]

That’s not m’kay

August 21, 2014

There are words and phrases that stay in the mind much longer than you’d think logical, and as you age they can come floating back to the surface for no good reason. One example of this is the story my friend told me about the first time one of her classmates brought in sandwiches with Dijon mustard in them and the awed reaction, which to this day I’ve not been […]

Marcos Rojo, or how to make friends and influence people

August 20, 2014

Transfer business isn’t for the weak-hearted, and even the most ‘moral’ clubs are not beyond putting the boot in to get a deal done whilst simultaneously complaining about the same thing being done to them. Liverpool and Arsenal have both been guilty of that hypocrisy in recent times, most notably with the Anfield club and their attempts to strip Southampton of their assets whilst trying to prevent other clubs doing […]

Be easy

August 19, 2014

When they say a week is a long time in politics the general reaction is to smile and nod knowingly for most people, rather than risk exposing themselves to a long conversation with the sort of bore who’d use such a phrase, but in cricket things are a bit more considered and it can sometimes take up to a month to tear a man down. Where you start is not […]

Premier League title race: who needs what?

August 18, 2014

We’ve seen most of the probable contenders for the Premier League title now, with the exception of Chelsea, and unless Jose Mourinho’s side lose to Burnley this evening it seems like the bookies weren’t far off with their predictions. Manchester United and Liverpool were the outside bets, with Arsenal in the middle ground and City expected to vie with the aforementioned London Blues for the title itself and you’d not […]

Rugby Championship 2014

August 16, 2014

While the English ladies prepare for their Rugby World Cup final tomorrow and the Premier League creaks back into action like a recalcitrant tractor being brought out of winter storage arguably the most exciting international tournament in the world (well, if you like rugby) was getting underway in Sydney, and it was a pretty decent opener the Aussie fans got to see. Admittedly the tries didn’t flow like amber nectar […]
