Looks good Craig, you could start a web design business! Picky stuff: the League tables looks fuzzy--the image optimizer may be on. I would make the badges at the bottom bigger since they are connected to the excel pages. Right now they just look like the "stuff" at the bottom of any website. Thank you for using "ensure" correctly!!

For Football website

I don't want to be the party spoiler, but the legality of what you are doing is questionable, furthermore you should not use the 3 logos at the bottom which aren't yours.

You might wish to upgrade to a professional domain to make it look more legit.

Probably should work on Disclaimers etc also.

http://footballpredictions.co.uk/ - is for sale I am not sure why you included it in graphic. Either buy that domain name or change graphic.

That is enough free analysis for now :D

Good Luck.

ExpertYola.com can you please advise why you think this website would be questionable with reagrds to legality?
I have already bought the .co.uk website but this is only at the design stage, the website is not completed yet!

Thanks for your comments. Anything else let me know!

@ ExpertYola.com, what is illegal about what I am doing, its a football prediction website which you win money at if you win, why would this be illegal?

Hey Craig,

I have to agree with Diane. You have got a knack for this site building stuff.
You have got to look at webdesign. Dig the font. "Maiandra GD" is it?
Never heard of it. Is it cross browser friendly?

Hi Boomer,

Just enjoy a bit of fiddling with websites, just a hobby but webdesign is a bit out my league I would have to refer people to this forum for advice lol.
Yeah using Maiandra GD thought it looked a bit different, checked it on firefox and IE and looks ok so far not sure about other browsers but hope it works.

Also doing http://substitutebench.co.uk, but thats a long way off................ way behind with that, maybe next year!!

Substitutebench looks good. A lot of 404 pages but you are off to a good start.
Maiandra GD checks out in all the browsers btw. IE displays it a bit more "normal" than the others. "Normal" being bad. I tried the font on one of my other sites but it doesn't seem to have the same impact as yours. Guess I'll have to stick with my normal Verdana for the time being.

Thanks Boomer started it a while ago but never stuck to the time plan for completing it. Lots of 404 pages as I deleted most of them as I didnt like the way they looked hence why I only have 2 pages up and running lol. Have a few font I liked but they turned out a bit mad on some web browsers hence why I usually stick to the few included in Yola myself, but had to branch out ...

Hi Craig,
It really does look amazing!
One thing you could try is submitting it to http://browsershots.org so you can see how it would look to other OSes and Browsers. Just a thought! :P
