The Joy of Six: betting coups — In perhaps the most famous betting coup in British or Irish horse racing history, the Irish former band manager and trainee Jesuit priest-turned gambler, racehorse owner and philanthropist Barney Curley, entered a horse named Yellow Sam in a National Hunt race at the small provincial track of Bellewstown in Ireland.

Football transfer rumours: Wilfried Bony to Liverpool? — Flushed with the success of their £120m summer splurge, Liverpool's fabled transfer committee could convene in the coming days to pore over assorted dossiers, graphs, spreadsheets, pie-charts, scouting reports, filtering reports, recommendations and personal testimonies before concluding that Wilfried Bony, the Premier League's leading goalscorer in 2014, is quite good at "doing goals" and a player on whom it might be worth taking a punt.

A fit and proper kick in the teeth — Having had no problem with upstanding citizens such as Cuddly Ken Bates and the good people in charge of Bahraini wealth managers Gulf Finance House being deemed fit and proper enough to own Nasty Leeds, the Football League today announced that tax-avoiding Massimo Cellino was not fit to own the club and asked him to step down after receiving evidence from an Italian court that diagnosed his tax-knack.

Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend — Scoring a hat-trick against Bayern Munich is all well and good, but how will Sergio Agüero fare upon being confronted by the tightest defence in the Premier League?
