    i remember last 2 seasons when sunderland was in division 1 and their home is unbeatable and with such a odds available on sunderland, I will be taking sunderland trusting their unbeaten run will continue in division 1. Taking asian level handicap is definately a good bet in this one

      Well let's have an early look.


      Colchester United - Plymouth Argyle:

      Everyone expects the U's to be the Championship's seasonal punch bag / clear cut relegation battlers. That is not surprising considering they have lost manager Phil Parkinson, the man who got them promoted, hired an inexperienced manager and have been very inactive in the transfer market (Only two transfer-ins were midfielder Johnnie Jackson and striker Jamie Cureton), keeping a League-One-rated squad.
      And yet despite their 2-1 defeat to Birmingham this saturday, I was very impressed by Colchester's determination, even without their ex-star playmaker Neil Danns. At times they were even better than the quality-superior and promotion favorites Blues and really did not seem to be as weak as they supposedly are. I believe that if such performance can be repeated at home (best home record last year with 15/23 wins), against a weaker team, having settled a bit in the league, Colchester are bound not to lose. All they need is time.

      And that weaker opponet just happens to be Plymouth. Argyle are clearly not the best team this league has to offer, and looked rather pale and unconvincing in Saturday's 1-1 draw against an injury-ridden Wolves side. New manager Ian Holloway said he was very proud of his men; that only demonstrates Plymouth's modest seasonal expectations.
      It can be said that a fully fit squad featuring Bojan Djordjic and Akos Buzsaky is better than what Colchester has to offer. However, with Barry Hayles and Chadwick up front, I predict that last year's serious scoring trouble (failed to score in 21 league games) will continue, especially as Argyle has failed to improve their attack significantly over the summer. It should also be noted that the Pilgrims have managed to win just 3 games away from Home Park last season.

      To sum up, I think the match against Plymouth would be a good opportunity for Colchester to settle in. It may be too soon for them to win, but there is no reason for them to lose as the bookies believe.

      Pick #1: X @ 3.25 :arrow: BET365 [4/10]
      Pick #2: Under 2.5 @ 1.75 :arrow: BETSAFE [7/10]

        Those quoted prices are poor. Ive already taken Norwich @ 2.25 against Preston as Earnshaw missed a bagful against Leeds and the price is too good to miss imo.

          "With the exception of a 15-minute patch during the second half, the Canaries completely dominated this match, creating more scoring chances than they are likely to get in their next two or three away games.

Leeds took the points but they can count themselves highly fortunate; on another day they could have lost 5-1."

              If you can get over 2,0 on Norwich in this game, I say take it.

              Earnshaw missed a lot of chances, Norwich played well, and the 3 men on top (Huckerby, Croft and Earnshaw looked sharp).

              Norwich at home and Norwich away have usually been two different sides, and I expect Preston to pay for the bad luck against Leeds.

              Preston is a team well capable of defending a draw, and I think the draw is the only other possible outcome of this game.

                  Pick: Hull City
                  Odds: 2.0 (Interwetten)
                  Stake: 3 points


                  Hull have had an interesting summer. After consolidating their position in the Championship last season, a couple of new signings, but more importantly perhaps, a change in management that seems to present hull with a bright future. New manager Phil Parkinson worked wonders in his previous job at Colchester United, on a shoe string budget, and with more money to spend he should enjoy reasonable success at Hull City. Barnsley on the other hand have made a return to the Championship after several seasons in league 1. They were back in the 90s a Premiership club, but after severe financial troubles, its considered a surprise that they have already worked their way back up the divisions.

                  Hull finished 18th in the Championship, last season, with a home record of 8-8-7.
                  Barnsley finished 5th in League 1, with an away record of 7-7-9.

                  In their previous game, Hull lost 2-0 at the Hawthorns, with Hartson sealing the Baggies win with a goal in the 90th minute. Hull felt hard done by since they were earlier denied an obvious penalty. The manager's reflections on the game were that the performance was excellent and Hull should have got something from the game.

                  Barnsley lost 2-1 at home to Cardiff City. Cardiff regularly opened up the Barnsley defense, but never really finished off the game. Barnsley showed good spirit to come back into it from a 2-1 deficit. They even had a chance to level, late in the game.

                  While the big danger for Hull is that they will once again be wasteful in front of goal, their pre-season form gives me some faith in their ability to score. Parkinson will be keen to get his first win in front of the home fans, and the advantage in terms of motivation should be on Hull City's side. I believe that will prove decisive in this fixture.

                  Hull are still missing Nicky Barmby and new signing David Livermore, and their presence would have given me greater confidence in a Hull City victory, but regardless, I expect Hull to win. Small stakes. 3 points on a Hull victory

                      Pick: Norwich (draw no bet)
                      Stake: 5 points
                      Odds: 1.5 (Bet 365)



                      Norwich should win this game. Preston have made big changes to their squad and key injuries have them looking like a very average side. They failed to score against a poor Sheffield Wednesday side at home. The Canaries on the other hand should have got something out of their trip to Elland Road but Robert Earnshaw spurned several good chances and hit the post.
                      There is good value on the Norwich wins, with the odds on that over 2.0. Those odds are great value and are based largely on Preston's success last season. Preston lost key players over the summer, and the team news at this point, makes Norwich clear favorites here.
                      Preston defender Matt Hill (dead leg) and striker Danny Dichio (hip) are doubtful, while defenders Youl Mawene, Callum Davidson are sidelined. Also out are midfielders Brian O'Neil, Adam Nowland and Joe Anyinsah and strikers Brett Ormerod and Andy Smith.
                      Norwich finished last season in 9th place. Their home record was 12-4-7 (GD+9). Preston finished last season in 4th place. Their away record was top class at 9-10-4 (GD+10).
                      My pick, however is Norwich with a Draw-No-Bet. While odds of 1.5 aren't mouth watering, the secuirty of not losing on the draw, makes this an attractive bet. Preston are unlikely to win this, but Norwich must take their chances. A failure to do so could prove costly. 5 points on Norwich (Draw No Bet).

                        I would never trust QPR at this moment. Internal problems in the board, bad team morale, many new unproven players...etc
                        This team just doesnt deserve our trust yet and even if they win 5-0 today I would never regret not betting on them.

                          Coca Cola Football League Championship

                          <U>Hull City FC vs. Barnsley FC</U>

                          Covering the X2 at this price is a must bet. The home side, missing both stars Nick Barmby and David Livermore (in addition to long term injuries Ian Ashbee [M], Danny Coles [D] and Steve McPhee [S], three important players) splashed two million quids on some questionable transfers such as Sam Ricketts and Michael Turner. The two are League One defenders who looked quite lost on Saturday when Hull lost 0-2 to WBA, and will have to settle in the Championship before they do well. Until then, they are a liability for Hull.

                          Key midfielder Stuart Elliot was absolutely terrible on saturday and was eventually subbed. Jon Parkin is a decent striker, but with McPhee out for a long time he doesn't have any decent partner: Ben Burgess is way out of shape, Darryl Duffy and Craig are Fagan bad finishers. What a nice bunch of non scoring strikers was left by Peter Taylor. The Tigers could rely on ex-Spurs midfielder Dean Marney, however despite his talent he lacks experience and will take time to adjust as well.

                          Barnsley have a good setup and a fairly decent team. With Andy Ritchie at helm, featuring players like ex-Doncaster top goalscorer Michael McIndoe, they could achieve more than a relegation battle. McIndone joins Brian Howard and Martin Devaney to form a very solid, attack-minded midfield. Daniel Nardiello is a gifted striker, however he is set to be sidelined today. They have Paul Hayes and Marc Richards as a decent covers. In terms of quality, then, the gulf between the Tykes and the Tigers is almost non-existant, especially in light of the latter side's fitness problems. Cardiff was not much better than Barnsley and their 2-1 win at Oakwell on Saturday was undeserved.

                          It does not seem wise to underestimate Barnsley. They can certainly get at least a point against a very medicore Hull side and the price represents great value. So I'll take Barnsley with the +1/2 handicap with high stakes.

                            what about:

                            20:40 8301 Leicester City - Burnley
                            1.90 3.20 4.00

                            when i look at the previous results i would say burnley.

                              QPR have problems in attack with striker Paul Furlong (thigh) out, while Kevin Gallen and Marc Nygaard are still struggling with pre-season injuries.
                              Midfielder Egutu Oliseh is set to miss out with a thigh injury, and defender Dominic Shimmin is still suspended.

                              On-loan goalkeeper Tony Warner is poised to make his second start after being drafted in as emergency cover for Neil Sullivan (dead-leg)
