My #FACup Journey – Third Round #CupStory

Follow @IJFootballBlogs Hello, my name is Ian 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’m please to say I have managed it so far as well and have really enjoyed doing it. I started with the Extra Preliminary Round, the Preliminary Round before going to the First, Second, Third and Fourth Qualifying Rounds. We’re now into…

I’m back with my #Super6 predictions

Good afternoon and Happy New Year to you all!! Is it still a bit late to be saying that? It probably is now as it’s the middle of January, but it’s better to say it than not say it I suppose.

If anyone wants to play along, you can do so for free by opening a Sky Bet account and you get a free…

Good afternoon!! Hope you all had a very good Christmas and festive period so far. Happy New Year for tomorrow as well. It’s Soccer Saturday Super 6 predictions time again. The last one of the year!

The Regression of Rash or Genius Management?

So maybe just maybe, if you take into account recent results, Jose Mourinho seems to be getting somewhere with his Manchester United team, though after a 140m+ summer spend I think that is the least you would expect. But anyways things are looking up for the red half of Manchester, but one player who is most definitely not on the up is last seasons breakthrough star at Old Trafford, Marcus Rashford. TEENAGE STARLET Last season he more than took his opportunity when he was called upon, due to an injury to Anthony Martial during…

FA Cup Round-Up #CupStory

Last night saw the final game of the FA Cup Second Round, which means everyone now knows who’ll they have in the next round. The round where all the big boys join the competition. With last night’s 1-0 winners Plymouth Argyle over Newport County after extra-time being one of those teams to face a big name. Yes, Graham Carey’s penalty with eight minutes to go of the game sent his team through to face Liverpool at Anfield. Plymouth might not have had to go to extra-time if Paul Garita had not taken…

Super 6 Predictions Week 21

Good afternoon!! Well what a Soccer Saturday Super 6 predictions result I had midweek – can we do midweek prediction games all the time? I was concentrating on the Palace vs Manchester United match on Wednesday and didn’t really notice too many of the other results coming in. Then at the end I saw all the final scores and thought, hmm I might have done quite well here. Obviously I knew straight away I’d not got the maximum number of points as I saw that Liverpool had spanked Middlesbrough in the end,…

Super 6 Predictions Week 20 – midweek

Good afternoon!! Woo hoo a midweek Soccer Saturday Super 6 predictions game with all Premier League ties as well. Isn’t that exciting? Lets enjoy this as it doesn’t happen as often as we’d like it to. I remember the good old days before so many European games etc when we’d have midweek league fixtures six, seven, even eight times a season. Last Saturday went well, a total of 13 points scored, with just the one game with no points scored. That was Swansea vs Sunderland as I went for the away win. The…

Super 6 Predictions Week 19

Good afternoon and how are we all, looking forward to a super weekend of football and sporting action? My Soccer Saturday Super 6 predictions for this week are coming to you a day early. That has nothing to do with strategy or being more prepared for this week. It’s purely tactical and not from a prediction point of view, well I suppose it is slightly, as if I do not do them now I doubt I’ll be able to get this article/blog out to you in time. I’m busy tonight with…

Soccer Saturday Super6 Predictions – Week 18

Good morning and happy Saturday everyone. Are we ready to talk about our Soccer Saturday Super 6 predictions game for another week? Yep me too. First though my usual busy Saturday morning earlier with the kids football training. Obviously with the weather so bad recently, we thought ahead and booked the local indoor football zone about ten minutes up the road. Best to have something booked to guarantee the boys and girls can have a run around. It may cost a few quid extra each week but as I said, the…
