Rooney Is The Best Player In MLS
Wayne Rooney is the highest scorer ever for Manchester United and England and in both cases he broke the records set by Sir Booby Charlton. A return to his beloved Everton went pear shaped after some promising performances and he now plays for DC United in MLS. If you watch the matches he takes part in it’s obvious there are 21 average footballers chasing the ball and one class act.
Defences double up on Rooney which means space for other players that can be exploited in tonight’s home match against Minnesota. The visitors have no wins in five matches and have conceded at least one goal in 13 fixtures. DC UNITED with Rooney must be backed at 11/20 with Betfair to beat Minnesota in the United States.
Rooney has been one of the most high profile British sportsmen since the turn of the century and another is Ronnie O’Sullivan. At his best there is no doubt he is the best snooker player in the game and he has won five worlds titles. However, he blows hot and cold and his form and application suffer if he gets out of the wrong side of the bed. O’Sullivan has not played competitively since the world championship.
He was beaten in the last 16 by Ali Carter and not been seen on the circuit again. He is a player who can produce the goods without practice or matchplay. O’SULLIVAN should be backed -1.5 frames against Neil Robertson at 8/11 with Boylesports in the Shanghai Masters, a tournament in which he has an outstanding record.
It’s the first day of the St Leger meeting at Doncaster and there is some decent racing. However, the supporting races do not justify a four day festival and the best racing could be condensed. Today’s meeting is a mixture of handicaps and listed and conditions races but nothing at Group level. DETACHMENT is the each way bet at 14/1 with Paddy Power for the one mile handicap at 3.35.
The richest race of the day by far is the Kerry National at Listowel (4.20). There is over £100,000 up for grabs in this three miles handicap chase. The race has attracted a maximum field of 19 runners so the place terms are one quarter the odds for the first four. JP McManus has four entries in the hands of different trainers but his best prospect comes from the stable of Willie Mullins. BLAZER is the selection to win the Listowel race at 6/1 with bet365.
