COPA American Predictions


The COPA America games have reached the semi-final with only four teams left in the tournament. The four teams have been paired, and the best two shall battle it out in the finals to find the winner of the tournament. The four teams in the tournament are all strong and are most likely to provide tough matches.

There are many factors that one has to put into consideration to know the team that is likely to win the tournament. The first factor that is to be considered is the level of the experience that the players have. The most experienced players are likely to win a match because they have been in the game for many years and know the different tricks that they can use to win any match. They also know the patterns that they can play to beat their opponents easily.

Individual talent is also very important because it will determine the extent to which the team is expected to perform. There are players who have the ability to help their teams win a tough match by the use of the individual talent that they have.  The odds at BoydsBets show that Argentina and Chile are the favorites to advance.

USA v Argentina

The first game that is likely to be the topic of discussion is the USA versus Argentina, which involves two teams that are both strong. This is a tough match that is likely to have a few numbers of goals because both the teams have a good defensive play. Though Argentina has players who have individual talent and can help the team to win the game, USA also has the ability to pose a great threat to the defense of Argentina.

It will be a game that will be good to watch because it will be full of good attempts by both the team to win the match. The match is likely to be of a high standard because both the teams have experienced players who have the ability to use their individual knowledge to change the pattern of the game in an attempt to beat their opponent who are also very strong. Both teams have players who have played in various leagues and have the experience of how to beat teams that use a given pattern. This is likely to be used by both the teams, Argentina is likely to make use of the counter-attack because they have experienced strikers who can help them win use such a tactic.

In my opinion, Argentina is likely to win the match because they have better players compared to the United States of America. The number of goals of goals scored in the match will not be many since the game will involve two teams that have the best defenders who can help them avoid the many attempts that will be made by the strikers of the opposing team.

Colombia v Chile

The Colombia versus Chile match is also likely to be a tough game though not to the same extent to that of Argentina and USA. The match is likely to involve many attempts from the Chile side which has more experienced and talented players compared to the Colombian team.

Chile has players who have been playing for long and have gained the skills they need to be able to win such a match. They have the advantage of having a strong midfield that can enable them to push forward and score goals.

The Colombian team is likely to play most of the defensive game because Chile will be very offensive and if they do not defend they might be beaten easily. The match may also not have many goals in total because both teams have good defenders who have the ability to defend well and prevent the opponents from scoring in their goals. Both the teams also have good goalkeepers which is another factor that will make the number of goals not to be many. Chile is likely to win the match.

Every Goal from 2015/16 Cup Season

Goals weren’t easy to come by for the Red and White Army during the 2015-16. Forest managed to score a total of just 43 goals over the course of the season. To put in perspective only three other teams scored fewer and powers like Burnley and Brighton led the way with 72 goals a piece in the English League Championship. While finding the back of the net proved to be difficult, that’s not to say there wasn’t some impressive goals along the way this past season. Check out this video to look back at every goal that was scored.

2015-16 Season Review

It was a disappointing season for Nottingham Forest. The 2015-16 campaign had it’s ups and downs, including a great 15-game stretch, where they team went 7-7-1.

This video really does a nice job of recapping the roller coaster ride of the 2015-16 season.

Forest Tickets

The 2015-16 English League Championship season is in the books. It was another disappointing year for the Nottingham Forest, as they finished up in 16th place with a 13-16-17 record (55 points). Forest came into the season with the hopes of pushing for a promotion, but it wasn’t meant to be.

It continued their decline from their surprising 8th place finish (67 points) during the 2012-13 season, which followed a 19th place finish (50 points) in 2011-12.

Forest got off to a relatively slow start to the season, but looked like they may have turned the corner during a solid stretch of play from early November into the first few days of February. During this 15-game stretch, Forest racked up 7 wins, 7 draws and just 1 defeat.

After what ended up being their best stretch of the season, things went down hill in a hurry. Forest lost 9 of their next 11 matches to put to rest any hope of finishing in the Top 10 of the standings. On the bright side, Forest was able to finish the year on a bit of a positive note, going unbeaten in their final five games.

The focus now turns to the 2016-17 season, where Nottingham will try to get things turned around. The big question for Forest, is who will be the boss for the upcoming campaign. Interim manager Paul Williams has left the club. Williams took over for the final 10 games after manager Dougie Freeman was fired in March.

Forest Roster

Here’s a look at the Tricky Trees main roster. Those that watch Forest, know that this team relies heavily on its defense. The Reds simply don’t have much fire-power on the offensive side of things. Forest scored a total of just 43 goals. The only teams to score fewer were Charlton, MK Dons and Bolton. All three of those teams have been relegated.

Defense and strong goalie play from Dorus De Vries is what gave Forest a fighting chance this past season. The Red and White Army only surrendered 47 goals.

Forest simply didn’t get enough out their offense to expect a whole better finish to the season. Defender Matt Mills was the team’s leading scorer with 5. While it’s nice to get goals out of your back line, you don’t expect a defender to be the one leading the team. Dexter Blackstock and Henri Lansbury were second on the team with four goals each. The only other players with more than two goals on the season, were Ben Osborn and Jamie Ward, who each contributed three goals.

If there’s one player the Reds were counting on more out of, it was Ward. Unfortunately he just couldn’t find the back of the net. He attempted a team-high 26 shots, with 24 of them on target, but only 3 got past the opposing goalie. Forest might want to consider giving Blackstock some more opportunities. His four goals came on a mere five shots.
