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...

Transfer deadline day fever

September 1, 2014

“Regardless of what Arsene Wenger thinks of his squad, he has an obligation to appease Arsenal fan’s desires, when it can be done. After all the fans pay both his and the club’s wages”.   That gem was one of the transfer deadline day messages the BBC saw fit to relay to the waiting public, from a man who shall remain anonymous unless you can be bothered to go and […]

US Open: men’s week 2

August 31, 2014

The final major of the tennis year is upon us, with the best in the world descending on a former landfill in New York to fight it out for a few million dollars in prize money and no Rafa Nadal on show either unfortunately. The Spanish master has had a long, arduous and incredibly successful season to this point and there is always doubt over his long-term health, particularly in […]

Champions League draw 2014/15

August 29, 2014

There was a treat for fans of awkward sporting ceremonies yesterday, with the never-disappointing Champions League Group Stage draw staged in Monaco, hosted by Peter Schmeichel amongst others, and the news was definitely mixed for English teams. Manchester City won’t have been thrilled to be drawn in the same group as Bayern Munich for yet another campaign and with Roma also in Group E that might well be dubbed the […]

Too many ex-cooks?

August 28, 2014

Spin has become a dirty word in politics, thanks largely to the work of Tony Blair, or ‘Bliar’ as his super-witting critics used to call him, but in the world of cricket skill in that area is still something to be respected at the moment. England haven’t produced a truly world-class spinner in over half a century if truth be told, but one of the more recent and successful examples […]

Celtic: rivals wanted

August 27, 2014

Scottish football has never been the pinnacle of the European game in fairness, with the majority of their notable results seeming to be underdog shocks than domination, but this last week suggests that it might be at low ebb even with the modest expectations taken into account. After crashing to a defeat at the hands of Inverness Caledonian Thistle, the Scottish champions went out of the Champions League to Maribor […]

A good deal of hot air

August 26, 2014

There is no doubt that one of the biggest changes in modern football is the rise of the transfer window and reporting on the same, but the question these days of what makes a good transfer in modern football is much harder to answer than before. The discrepancy of views between different fan bases, or even in the same group at times is incredible, and it’s very rare for any […]
