First game of the season, newbies always do well, but scrap that, I'm going for experience. Get on this:
FIRST GAME OF THE SEASON: QPR V BOLTON
Bolton (2/1 Coral)
Sorry I keep tipping the red half of the mancs, but to be fair, I hate to admit this, but they're a good team. Get on this:
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2012 WINNER:
Manchester United (9/1 Victor Chandler)
Yes, it's in the football section, oh well. But here's my tip!:)
MONACO GRAND PRIX 2011 TRICAST (First 3 Finishers)
1. Sebastian Vettel (Unfortunately)
2. Mark Webber (Unfortunately)
3. Jenson Button (Congratulations!)
(8/1 Paddy Power)
This race will be decided in the pits, it's very difficult to overtake on these slim Monaco roads, especially with the drivers aware of the marbles.
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE WINNER
Yes, Barcelona are on great form and are probably the best team in the world at the moment, and yes, they beat Man U 2 years ago in this same match, though I hate to say this, but Man United are also a very good team, and could make some good money at 3/1 with William Hill and lots of other bookies'. They're not a huge outsider, but Barca are amazing so Man U will have a job to beat them, but 3/1 is good odds for such a good team in a 2 team football match, plus they've just won the Barclays Premier League!
3/1 William Hill
EURO 2012 WINNER
We all know Spain will probably win it, but I like to go for someone other than the favourite, in all betting, racing and football. So World Cup Finalists Holland look a good bet at 7/1.
Holland (7/1 Victor Chandler)
FC PORTO V BRAGA FIRST GOALSCORER (EUROPA LEAGUE FINAL)
Hulk (Porto) 4/1 SkyBet and most other bookies'.
Opposite halves at Goodison Park as City were all over us in the first half, but just lost concentration in the second as Everton took advantage of that and won with two great headers, one into the bottom corner by former City man Sylvain Distin (who has been absolutely solid at the back for us this term, and deserves a huge thanks and congratulations on a great season from the club and fans), and one spectacular header from in-form midfielder Leon Osman. When asked by an interviewer what had Moyesy said at half time to influence the players to change their performance drastically in the second half, Distin claimed that Moyesy wouldn't have a go at the players and that he is a nice manager, so the players just realized that they needed to book up their ideas in the second half and improve, which they did.Here's the teams:
24 Tim Howard
2 Tony Hibbert (Beckford 45) 6 Phil Jagielka 15 Sylvain Distin 3 Leighton Baines
10 Mikel Arteta 5 John Heitinga 18 Phil Neville 21 Leon Osman 26 Jack Rodwell (Cahill 64)
28 Victor Anichebe (Coleman 86)
J Hart, P Zabaleta, V Kompany, J Lescott *boo*, A Kolarov, N De Jong, P Vieira, J Milner, G Toure Yaya, D Silva, E Dzeko.
Last game of the season, bad display from the super whites as they relaxed on the pitch, knowing they were safe, not trying very hard. We are safe, but our lads made £6 for kids look like a rip off, they could have tried harder to at least impress the fans and make our money worth while. However, congratulations to Tranmere staying up in League One, and I hope to see them battling for a play off place next season like the good old days. Tranmere overall though didn't have many chances at all, we had some half chances, and tried some long range shots deep into the second half, but we let Swindon walk through us effectively, making them look like a good team. Which sorry but they just haven't been recently.
Not much to say about it overall though as it was a bad display, we probably could have done better with Enoch (Showunmi) on the pitch, but as he's injured, he couldn't help us. At least this season is over and done with, and we'll do better next term, with all of our players back and fit again.
Thanks to tranmererovers.co.uk we have the starting eleven for you to see:
See you soon.
SUPER WHITE ARMY!!!
The super whites continued their stunning from on Saturday, now having scored 7 goals in 2 games. We are at home to Swindon Town on Saturday, who are rock bottom of the table and now have lost their manager, so we should give them a good thrashing. Good luck to our lads at that match, but back to this match: we haven't had much to shout about this season, except from Dale Jennings, we've been doing more shouting at. But this stunning form towards the end of the season should let us end on a high. Here's how the match went:
In the eighth minute, we were ahead already due to an amazing shot from 35 yards from full back Aaron Cresswell! As our away fans sat back, relaxed, and enjoyed as we watched our boys destroy the Orient's hopes of somehow finding themselves in the play-offs! No disrespect ;)
Just before big Les had a chance to congratulate the players (half time), Robbie Weir won a challenge with Matt Spring, before giving it to Adam McGurk who gave us something else to shout about!
Big Les must have gave our lads sugar lumps at half time, as four minutes into the second half, McGurk tripled our lead - away! The goal was made from a Cresswell free kick for McGurk to chest in, before being replaced by midfielder Joss Labadie.
Zoom (Bakayogo) came on for Jennings and struck the post late on to deny us a fourth, and we used our final substitution to bring Max Blanchard on for Robbo (Robinson) but we should have something to look forward to on Saturday. See you there, leave any comments in the guestbook.
SUPER WHITE ARMY!
