FA Cup Second Round Qualifying

FA Cup Second Round Qualifying

Follow @KJFootballBlogs  –   Hello, my name is Kristian and after doing my (preview/review) blogs on this site covering all the games of Euro 2016. I decided to start a new project. To try to attend as many rounds of the FA Cup 2016/2017 season starting from the very beginning. I’ve gone well so far as well, having been to the Extra Preliminary Round, the Preliminary Round and then the First Round Qualifying. This round then was the Second Round Qualifying and once again I decided to keep it local…

Super 6 – International Break

Super 6 – International Break

Hello and how are you all? Missed me? No, okay fair enough, not sure my family did either to be honest! Hah kidding, well that’s what they tell me anyway. Yes, I have been overseas on holiday for 10 days and didn’t have time to do my Super 6 blog predictions and previews. I did manage to do my Super 6 each week whilst away but the first week I don’t think I should of bothered. Saying that, or I am just trying to defend myself? I was very close…

Oscar’s Super 6 this week

Oscar’s Super 6 this week

I’ll be honest, after a few poor weeks of predictions, even though most of my friends were in the same boat, I was starting to doubt myself. I told myself it’s just because it’s the start of the season and not all the teams have settled down yet and got into a rhythm, I told myself all the new managers didn’t know their best teams as yet and I even told myself it’s because the transfer window is still open. All wrong. It’s purely luck I then told myself! I’m…

To try to attend as many rounds of the FA Cup 2016/2017 season starting from the very beginning. I’ve gone well so far as well having not missed either of the opening two preliminary rounds, although this blog is actually a week late so I’m sorry about that. Yes, on Saturday 20th August I attended an FA Cup Preliminary…

Football is a funny old game – a brighter future ahead for Hull City AFC

Football is a funny old game – a brighter future ahead for Hull City AFC

I was on a train frantically faffing around with my digital radio as my signal was in and out listening to Hull City vs Manchester United and it was in stoppage time that ‘Johnny-on-the-spot’ Marcus Rashford tapped in after good byline work from Wayne Rooney to deservedly win the game for Jose Mourinho’s men. Hull’s players, fans and hierarchy would have been devastated after a herculean performance but the right result was a win for the Reds of Manchster. On another day the spoils would have been shared, but lets be honest…

Soccer Saturday – my last chance?

Soccer Saturday – my last chance?

We all have issues Big Sam! You only have to pick your new England squad every now and again though, starting with your first one next week. We have to pick our Super 6 predictions every week! Who’s the most stressed? Anyway, another week and I’m still here, thanks to Two Footed Tackle again. How are you all keeping this weekend? Did you enjoy the football last night? I watched Burton v Derby but it wasn’t the greatest match, however what a win for Burton Albion! Onto today’s Saturday games and of…

Super Super 6 this week

Super Super 6 this week

Another week comes and goes and I’m back again thanks to Two Footed Tackle, how are you all doing this weekend? Did you enjoy the football last night? I knew I should have had a little flutter on the Manchester United v Southampton game. I got the score wrong as thought United would win 3-0, however all day I was saying Zlatan would score two goals and I was right. If you get something in your end like that you should always be betting on it. Never mind, I’ll make sure…

A time and opportunity for some redemption on home soil

A time and opportunity for some redemption on home soil

The Olympics in Rio has had some negative press pre-tournament and whilst there have been odd instances and issues once it has begun, the sport has been the main story with some outstanding performances across the competing nations. Brazil as the home country have won three gold medals at the time of this blog being posted, but the one they crave more than any other is the men’s football Olympic title, the only international competition their side has never won. In London 2012 they made the final but lost surprisingly to Mexico…

My Super 6 predictions this week as Premier League starts

Hello again, I’m back again thanks to Two Footed Tackle, how are you all doing? Did you enjoy the football last weekend and of course the midweek action in the League Cup and Super Cup? I definitely did and just about did okay/average in the opening weekend of the Super 6 season. I got a total of 9 points with just the one correct score of Bristol City 2 v Wigan 1, with a couple of other predictions close. However I was way out with two games after there was…

It may surprise a few of you, but as most people were getting ready to watch their team start their league campaign last Saturday. The very lower teams were out there on the 5th, 6th and 7th August trying to…
