Champions League: Barcelona v AC Milan The cynics, perhaps let’s dub them the realists, will argue it’s all case of ‘too little too late’ for FC Barcelona with regard to putting AC Milan out of the Champions League. For precisely the last two months there has been a drop in the intensity of Barça’s play, […]
1. Foals (My Number) This Oxford band are one of Britain’s hottest properties. In the absence of a decent video for Bad Habit, we hope your number comes up at Cheltenham. 2. Kate Bush (Running Up That Hill) Surviving the famous Cheltenham hill is a test of any great horse. If they could wear earphones […]
Never work with animals or children, they say. That should extend to jockeys, world champion snooker players, and strange punters in blue onesies. Show Us Your Tips is Paddy Power’s all-star Cheltenham betting game show, and the result of what happened when we tried to assemble mouthy jockeys with pundits and a monkey. That’s right, […]
La Liga expert and all-round good guy Graham Hunter put in a Skype call with the Paddy Power Blog on Sunday night. We asked Graham where he saw the value in the betting for Manchester United vs Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday night at Old Trafford. As you’d expect from someone who […]
Some hilarious own-goal action from the Turkish Süper Lig tonight. Galatasaray keeper Fernando Muslera goes to take a goal kick from his hand towards the edge of the box. Somehow he manages to hit his own defender, Selcuk Inan. The ball ricochets off the defender’s back, back over the keeper’s head and into an empty net. 0-1 […]
Portugal’s Fabio Coentrao, who plays his club football for Real Madrid but has been linked with Manchester City and Chelsea, lightly dusted an opponent’s face last night in a feisty encounter at Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques as Portugal lost 3-2 to Ecuador. It’s the worst bit of acting we’ve seen since Eldorado. Thank whichever god you […]
Burkina Faso made it to their first Africa Cup of Nations final by beating Ghana on penalties in last night’s semi-final in Nelspruit. Burkina Faso (6/4) play Nigeria (1/2) in the final, no thanks to this guy who found the pitch more challenging than anything else. Betting: Africa Cup of Nations
Here’s a video of Danny after the incident. Be warned it does not make for the pleasant of viewing. The story behind Danny Simpson doing an Audley Harrison outside a Manchester takeaway at 4am on Sunday morning has yet to be fully clarified. The reports suggest that Simpson got a little mouthy as he queued […]
Manchester City and Liverpool played out a thrilling 2-2 draw at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday. Liverpool fans thought they’d won it when Steven Gerrard scored a beautiful half-volley. But Sergio Aguero equalised from a tight angle after Pepe Reina went flapping in no-man’s land. Thanks a million for that, Pepe. Paddy Power offered Money-Back if […]
It doesn’t quite have the same level of intimidation as the All Blacks’ Haka in rugby. But the New Zealand darts team gave it a shot yesterday in the PDC World Cup of Darts. Did it work? Well, no. Last year’s beaten finalists Australia were 5-2 winners. Still, fair play. Betting: PDC World Cup of […]
Serie A has just got a lot more exciting. Yes, Mario Balotelli has joined AC Milan, but we have fond memories of his time at Manchester City in the Premier League. Mario, here’s your best bits. Shine on, you crazy diamond.
Technically there is a game this week but a half-paced, half-hearted kick about under the Hawaii sun doesn’t warrant the attention of our American football experts in Las Vegas. Sunday’s Pro-Bowl will provide some entertaining highlights but it’s and end of season wind-down game played by star names thinking of their holidays. It’s main use […]
Yes, it’s about as original as a One Direction song, but after Eden Hazard’s moment of madness on Wednesday night, it had to be done. The Hitler video will be familiar to anyone who has owned a computer in the last 20 years, but we’ve resurrected it to catalogue the Fuhrer’s angry response to the […]
Makes you feel old and useless.
