Alfredo Morelos of Rangers kept up his 100% record of getting sent off against Aberdeen. In an eventful 4-2 victory for the Glasgow giants Morelos was making headlines for the right reasons in the first half with 2 goals. Morelos is unable to control his petulant “kick outs” at opponents and surely it is only a matter of time before Steven Gerrard has to accept that despite his striking prowess, he is a liability. It
Middlesbrough manager Tony Pulis: “They were the better team, they ran all over us. It was men against boys. Forget the conditions, you have to match people and that’s the real disappointment. A last 16 tie against Manchester City now for this seasons giant killers and on all evidence last night they will surely have their moments in that game as well. Twins!! An apt score 2-0 as goalkeeper Joe Day had missed Newport’s past two
Never done this before so here goes. I am looking forward to tomorrow nights SPL games. Aberdeen v Rangers looks pick of the bunch as both teams don’t want to allow Celtic to increase their points advantage. Anyway – Tonight’s FA Cup – How will these 4 games pan out. 15 minutes in to the matches and the 2 big odds on favorites, Wolves and Brentford are already in front. Not good news for the
4 FA Cup replays tonight and plenty of incentive for second and third tier clubs to dream of a semi final at Wembley. Many of the Premiership teams are already out and Chelsea host Manchester United in the last 16. There can only be 2 of the big 6 left in the quarter finals. Newport v Middlesborough is sure to be a competitive game. Newport left their poor league form behind them when prevailing against
Are we seeing the first serious cracks in Liverpool. A very lacklustre performance from the Merseyside Reds and Mr Klopp sounded more like “Mourinho” in his after match press conference, almost accusing Kevin Friend, last nights referee, of contributing to Liverpools failure. Wednesday night now gives Manchester City a great opportunity to get back to the summit with a win over Everton at Goodison Park. Albeit only on goal difference but let’s not forget 2012
City showed their steel with an impressive win agains’t Arsenal. Will Liverpool do the same or will the pressure start to tell on Jurgen Klopp’s team. Liverpool still have defensive injury worries with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Lovren and Gomez still unfit. It may be Henderson has to continue at full back and there is very little chance of a rest in the forseeable future for the front three.- Felipe Anderson and Marko Arnautovic could cause serious

Last nights premiership games threw up a couple of shocks with Man City and Man United failing to win. However, as predicted Wolves, Fulham, Everton and Arsenal all won. Look out for today’s predictions. Liverpool, Southampton, Spurs and Watford to draw, Bournemouth and Chelsea to draw. Official Algorithm Blog
The Super Bowl is upon us once again! No event on the sporting calendar attracts more global viewers… and as a result a 30-second window of advertising costs in the region of $4m. Now I can’t promise anyone’s going to win that, but let’s try and find a bit of value amongst the minefield of spreads and touchdown scorers. New England Coach, Bill Belichick, has been to the big game no fewer than 10 times.
