Newcastle. All about loathing the Manager & the bloke that makes everything possible, the Owner. Those who loathe them have never managed a Premiership Football Team, or made x Billion, as the Owner has. And yet they don't get a shred of respect. Clowns.

Happy anniversary!

Little NBA rookie update. It looks like number 2 pick Wiggins could well be traded by Cleveland as they assume a 'win now' approach and go after Kevin Love. This will mean his chances of being rookie of the year improve exponentially, goin to a shite team with as many minutes as he can handle, plus with a point to prove to boot. Not done yet but another 15 or 20 quid cover bet at 6/1 looks in order. As an aside, the price on Cleveland winning the championship this season will come in further from 5/1 as Love is very good.

Other rookies: our boy Nerlens is top of all the early rookie ladders and continues to shine. The time spent working on his stroke while injured is paying dividends. He has sat out some games as they ease him in tho which could be our main worry. Main rival imo Jabari Parker has not shown too much too far, and like the other X factor, Dante Exum, neither has looked particularly 'NBA ready'. The lakers have signed a couple of decent veteran big men, Carlos Boozer n Ed Davis, so suddenly Julius Randle has a much more crowded front court to compete with.

Some nice clips n early reports on Noel here http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2130536-early-report-card-grades-for-nerlens-noel-during-2014-nba-summer-league

I know everyone's focused on golf, but I noticed a horse running today 8.10 Doncaster, Billyoakes  33-1. Caught my eye as it had been rec'd by Calum Madell of Theyoungracegoer.com last Saturday at York and it ran a stinker finishing plumb last after a near two month absence from the racetrack. He liked the style of his previous run when winning a maiden at Hamilton.
I found this video of a gallop (8/7/14 http://www.mickchannon.tv/gallops.php ) featuring him and Deeds Not Words who went on to win a Class 2 h'cap at Newmarket at 33-1 three days later.
Probably reading far too much into this and suspicion is that he may prefer some cut in the ground but at 33-1 I had a small win bet.
Lol our friends at Stan James have pushed this horse out to 40s. Good plan this, have a bumbling fool out there as our leader throwing the bookies off the scent

I dont see how west ham have the players or the coach to achieve top 10. When bolton made top 10 under allardyce they had a couple of worldies in the sqaud. Valencia would be a good signing but south american players can take some settling (generalisation of course). Carrol would need to be fit all season too and that aint likely. I do think they will have a better season though than last. There are 8 teams nailed on for the top 8 places so it only leaves room for two of the rest to make top 10. I would prefer the chances of at least 4 of them ahead of thee ammers. 5/2 seems about right to me. Just my opinion of course.



Who are nailed on for a top 8 spot? There are at least three spots totally up for grabs IMO.   I put up stoke at 13/5 earlier in the summer at bwin. For similar reasons I would imagine west ham have a similar chance now given the summer signings and would second the bet at the same price as stoke.

Sorry, my bad. Its 7 from 7 not 8 as i said so yes it leaves 3 spots IMO. In no particular order.

Man c
Man u
Chelsea
Liverpool
Arsenal
Spurs
Everton
8
9
10

For me, those 3 spots could be taken by any one from

Palace
Stoke
Hammers
QPR
Leicester
Sunderland

We could always be surprised by newcastle too.


I would deffo take stoke over west ham at the same price for top ten. How would that match bet be priced?

Maybe its closer than i first thought so apologies. Still would want better than 5/2 west ham top 10.





Surely Newcastle are better than most/all of that rabble! How depressing, ambition to get into the group of palace, leicester, qpr and tikays mackems. Agree three spots in top 10 up for grabs, expect newcastle, west ham, stoke to fill them personally

Usually when I log onto Fred after a busy day and there's loads of pages to catch up on it's always a mixture of excitement about what's caused the rush or posts plus a little dread that I've missed a sure thing and everyone's got the lot. I didn't enjoy reading any of those last 5+ pages. Not sure posting that helps matters but whatever, it would be nice if posts were kept cordial, respectful and polite even if they're in complete disagreement with others, otherwise this isn't a fun and pleasant place

I was always told that carpet came from the carpet in your cell as a prisoner. If u got three years of more u got a more permanent 'home' which included carpet, those serving less than three had no carpet in their cell

Sure I have played with Iaron Lightbourne in a GUKPT.   I think he is mainly a cash player.  I am surprised he hasn't got more cashes, as I thought he was very decent.  One of those who doesn't make poker easy for you.
Plays £25/£50 and above at the Vic, doesn't bother much with comps.

Is the chipleader the fella from last year's November 9? Pretty impressive if so

Is that Middlesbrough legend Christian Karembeu with Wenger?

it is.
Rather see a pic of his missus.

Did Miami let the cat out of the bag with their draft pick tonight? Selected the guy lbj talked up as the best guard in college ball during the NCAA tourney and when they got him lbj tweeted saying he's his fave player in the draft. Would be weird to now leave the heat after that. Looks like he's opted out to re-sign for less to get a better squad. I've backed Cleveland at 60 and 50-1 but think this signals lbj stays in Miami. Think they'll shorten to 5/2 from. 7/2 once that happens officially

Got accused of pre-after timing with my Cleveland bets....just to prove Fred was made aware of them weeks ago, even tho at the time of posting I thought the pendulum had swung towards Miami again! Go Cavs!!

A bit of flesh to the bones of the NBA Rookie of the Year bet.

It's been known for years that there's a number of really good players coming into the league this coming season. This is slightly different to the past two, where we've been on the winner of this award at 6-1 and 14-1, as really there wasn't much talent and we had to look around for players going to bad teams that would get plenty of court time, plus were pretty talented.

This year should be a tougher field to find a bet, but circumstances have prevailed and I think it's a two horse race between the favourite, Jabari Parker, and Nerlens Noel, who was drafted last year, and was the consensus number one pick in a poor year before getting injured in Feb and dropping down the picks, missing all of last year with a knee injury. I think it's down to these two basically because you can put a line through all the competitors.

Number one pick Andrew Wiggins has gone to Cleveland. They weren't that bad last year, and actually only had a 1.5% of getting the first pick, which they did for the third time in four years. This means their team isn't that bad and Wiggins won't be thrust into a starring role on it. They have now signed LeBron and this is even more so the case. There's talk of him being traded for Kevin Love, which would alter his outlook completely (he'd be a star on a crap team and back into the betting) but he's been assured he won't be dealt and it's unlikely. LBJ didn't mention either Wiggins or last year's number one Anthony Bennett in his letter (he listed 4 others) so it could be done, but it's doubtful. If he's dealt we'll revisit this.

Number two pick Parker ticks all the boxes and is rightly favourite. Super talented, will go straight into Milwaukee's starting 5 and is instantly their best player. Some question marks remain, Jason Kidd's coaching, a packed front court that might hold him back slightly if Kidd shares the minutes around. He's NBA ready tho and his team are desperate.

Philly took Joel Embiid third. He was touted to go first but is injured and out for 4 to 6 months, much like Noel the year before. This takes him out of the Rookie of the Year race, which is good for us looking for a bet.

Julies Randle of the Lakers is third in the betting and is a danger. He looks like he'll slot straight in at power forward and could be a double double man straight away. However, the Lakers have a lot of money to spend on free agents and Kobe should be fully fit. It's hard to see a rookie getting enough of the ball to impress, and if the Lakers line up a similar kind of roster as last year, with loads of fun nomadic players looking like they're on the playground, it's not great for a rookie to shine. He'll be close tho.

Marcus Smart of the Celtics might benefit if they trade their All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo. If that happens he may have a chance, if it doesn't he doesn't. I don't see him as a threat whatever happens, not good enough.

Utah have Dante Exum and he's the great unknown in this. He's a 19 year old guard from Australia and not much is known about him. He's sposed to be pretty good, but I can't believe a kid from Australia will come in and blow away a draft class as good as this. Utah drafted a guard last year, Trey Burke, and they'll have to fight each other for the ball, although Gordon Hayward leaving will help a bit. Hard to judge how good he'll be just yet. His old man played with Michael Jordan at North Carolina then headed to play pro in Australia.

Doug McDermott is next in the list and surely as he's a no channer then we don't need to go any further. 'Dougie McBuckets' is instant offence but playing for the Bulls he'll have to learn to be a great defender to get on the court, and that takes time. He'll be a slow burner.

That brings us back to Nerlens Noel. Everything about this guy makes me wanna back him more. As we know from last year when we successfully backed Michael Carter-Williams, the Sixers are rubbish. They're rubbish with a purpose tho, they traded away their decent players for draft picks and now have the start of a young, exciting roster. Noel being injured all year meant they had another bad year and therefore got another high pick, and they've rinse repeated with Embiid so this year they won't be much good again.

It's been well known that even tho Noel has been out for 18 months, he's been fit and ready for at least 6 months, there just was no point playing him. Instead, he's been worked really hard on his basics. They've reconstructed his shot, which seems to be working a treat. His Achilles heal was his free throw shooting, just over 50% in his year in college. He hit his first nine in the summer league this week and shot 80% over 4 games. His shot looks great. His coach Brett Brown has been working one on one with him for months, much more so that any normal player/coach relationship. They know he's their future.

He's 6'11" and has a 7'4" wingspan. He is super athletic and can jump out the building. Defensively he's going to get loads of blocks and offensively some huge play of the day style dunks. He played really well in the summer league last week and said afterwards he hasn't thought about his knee in months.

The one drawback is that as Philly are gonna be crap again, they may limit his minutes and try and protect him with little reward for the risk. If they keep resting him or limit him to 20 minutes a game he won't be a runner. But with his teammate having won RotY last year and having been sat idle for 18 months, maybe up to half of that when he was fit, he'll be raring to go.

Here's our boy in action last week, fresh from injury, looks sharp already (and I don't just mean the flat top).



So we have £40 on Noel at 10-1, I think we should cover that with a bet on Parker to get our money back, suggest £20 at 3-1
