  1. The Grand National

    After the glitz, glamour and hype that was the Cheltenham Festival last week my eyes are now focussed on the Grand National in April.

    I am always a huge fan of the Aintree race and this will be the 7th year in succession I will be in attendance at the racecourse to see the biggest horserace of 2010. Last year Mon Mome won the big race and he is well fancied in the Grand National odds again Ė and you can see why.

    He looked good finishing in third place behind Imperial ...

If I was Pienaar I would rather look at my own side, you donít see anyone fancying South Africa in the World Cup betting ...

    The Coca Cola Championship
    The Madejski Stadium
    Referee: G L Ward
    Kick-off: 20:00
    Reading (16th) V Queens Park Rangers (15th)
    By The Godfather

    I was pleased with the result on Saturday afternoon. Sheffield United are play-off contenders, and I'm sure most supporters would have taken a point before the match at Bramall Lane. After only a few weeks under the leadership of Warnock, QPR are already showing signs of improvement ...
  5. I foresee World Cup problems for Germany

    For what seemed like decades, Germany were able to rely on a good pair of hands in goal. Bodo Ilgner then Oliver Kahn was the number one for many years, when he retired Jens Lehmann took over the number one shirt but now they have problems in net. Bayer Leverkusen's Rene Adler is the one who has been chosen by Joachin Low as his number one, but even the German legend Franz Beckenbauer has questioned this choice. Adler is prone to gaffes and Germany's World Cup odds could plummet if he keep making ...
