We have seen it work time and time again in football, especially once the new coach is appointed. It seems to have a similar effect in tennis, after parting company with Brad Gilbert, Andy Murray immediately won two events and now Andy Roddick, looks set to follow suit. Following his split with Jimmy Connors, he is a big favourite to take the title in Dubai this afternoon. So, we have a new system, wait for a top ranked player to dump their coach and get on !

FA Cup quarter-final weekend in England, an even split, with just four Premiership sides remaining, but with Manchester United hosting Portsmouth and Chelsea travelling to Championship strugglers Barnsley. It would take a brave man to bet against the amazing run of the big four, it is twelve years since any side apart from Man U, Chelsea, Liverpool or Arsenal has won the famous trophy. So much for them not taking the competition seriously.

I have "only" previewed three matches on the email service today, which is unusual for a saturday,no, I am not sitting on the profits (see post below), as all were high staked and strong selections. However, we do need to keep plenty of ammunition for tomorrow, where I have already given one strong bet and am also considering a seven point selection.

With regard to the blog, I will make a decision about what to post, after I see how the market reacts, over the next hour or so.

Please check back.
