    Mostbet Download App (.apk)

    The visual design of the mostbet app follows the same design style as on the official website mostbetin. The interface with an ergonomic menu allows you to easily navigate through the application, the functionality of which is almost as good as on the desktop site. The user can choose a design background, including a dark theme. There are no match and athlete statistics, sports news, bookmaker news, and the like. That said, the mobile interface is quite functional. The app has 4 menu items: Home - where popular matches and live and action line betting are collected. Sports - the entire line of the Mostbet app on Android. History - your current and completed bets. Profile - account settings, support, rules and account balance. The event coverage will pleasantly surprise bettors. Of course, the set of possible outcomes will always depend on the particular match, but there are bets on: team wins or draws; individual or total totals; score of the match; double odds; halftime comparisons; even/odds; odds; corner kicks; intervals; statistics. To bet on the Mostbet app on Android, you must be registered and your account must be funded. How to download MostBet. Apk The bookmaker's office tries to make its resources as user-friendly as possible. That's why the official app shop has a free version of Mostbet. So, how to download Mostbet app from Play Market? Open phone settings, go to "Security", click on "Phone Administration" tab and check the box next to "Unknown sources". A dialog box will open, where you need to click "OK". Go to the app shop, in the search bar write "Mostbet". A menu will open, on which there is a page with the application. To open it, click on the button "Download". After that, the automatic installation will start. After completing all these steps, the software appears in the menu of the device. After that, you can open it, log in and start betting on sports. All the same features as on the full version of the site are available from the mobile application. To download the software directly, you need to go to the appropriate section of the mostbetin site. The browser will open the official website of the bookmaker's office with download instructions. Almost at the bottom of the page is the "Download for Android" button. Click on it, and the app will start downloading. How to install MostBet. Apk Once the mostbet apk file has been downloaded, it must be installed. Before doing so, make sure that your smartphone is allowed to install third-party software other than from Play Market. What do I need to do? 1. Go to settings. 2. Open the security section of the device. 3. Allow the installation of applications from unknown sources. 4. Confirm the action. After that, go back to the website and try to download the mostbet application. If this does not work, restart your device. After successful download, go to "Downloads" section, find the application and start unpacking. After a few minutes, the software will be installed on your smartphone. You can then start betting on sports. Note that it can be installed not only on smartphones, but also on tablets. Mostbet Bonus The Mostbet bookmaker has a loyalty programme, which only registered users can take part in. In addition, the rewards system is only just being developed, so there are few gifts from the betting company at the moment. Nevertheless, you can get a Mostbet bonus by completing specific actions. For example, you can get a welcome bonus on your deposit of up to 25 thousand Indian rupees, which, you'll agree. is pretty good. The very first deposit must be made by a single transfer, as subsequent deposits are not counted. It is possible to get the bonus on the second Mostbet website within a week of registering. If the player deposits after that period, he will not receive a gift from the bookmaker. How to deposit in Mostbet The rules of the company are that every player can withdraw money from the moment the number of bets exceeds the amount of the first deposit. As for direct deposits, money can be deposited via: - MasterCard / Visa; - WebMoney; - EcoPayz; - Maestro; - Paytm; - Bitcoin. As you can see, the choice at first glance is not the greatest, but given the number of clients of these payments, a huge layer of the target audience is still captured one way or another. The same methods are used for withdrawals as for deposits.
  2. The French were given a real scare by Hungary in front of a fired up full house of shirtless skinheads in Budapest. Cracking atmosphere inside the ground (the less said about the protests outside of it the better) and the place went nuts when they took the lead completely against the run of play. The lad who scored didn’t know what to do so he just ran and ran and then jumped over the hoardings and scared the shit out of some poor girl who reporting at pitch side. Funny though and it’ll be one of the iconic moments of the tournament when its replayed in future years. Some funny looking specimens in that Hungary side though, including this lad who is a cross between Stevie Nicol and Sloth from the Goonies. France equalised through Griezemann but it makes the group really interesting now and their game with Portugal should be a cracker now. Get your money on England drawing with the Czechs because they won’t want to play whoever is second in this group. The Czechs might be better off throwing the game and hoping for the best. This result wasn’t great but there wasn’t too much wrong with the French performance overall and I don’t think anyone’s confidence in them has been shaken by it. They’re still the team to beat although Germany threw down a marker by spanking Portugal.

  3. Wales eh? How good was that! Great performance, great result, well deserved. They’re virtually in the knockouts now and might just have a very winnable game against Russia or Finland if things shake out well for them. That was a cracking game with Turkey, who at least showed some signs of life after the limp corpse showing they turned in against the Italians on opening night. It was just a really entertaining game, with loads of good footy and plenty of chances, most of which fell to Wales. Ramsay looked like he was going to have one of those games he’d stress over for the rest of his life as he kept getting chances and missing them. Most of them were created by Bale, and when the two combined just before half time Ramsay finally put one away with a deft finish. They were always in control but couldn’t get the second goal and it could have become nervy late on. It’s easy for me to say as I didn’t have any real emotional investment in it (I wanted Wales to win but I wouldn’t have lost any sleep if they hadn’t), but at no point did I ever feel like there was any chance they were going to concede and not win the game. In the last ten minutes they were ripping Turkey to pieces on the break with the pace of James but the ball just wouldn’t go in. Then they got a corner in stoppage time and with the Turks expected Bale to keep it in the corner, he danced along the touchline before getting a shot in that was saved for another corner. Amazingly, they let him do the exact same fucking thing again and he picked out Roberts to put the cherry on top of the cake. Great stuff, I even shouted “get in there”. I’m happy for them and even if they lose to Italy (which I don’t think it a certainty) they should be through now. Bale and Ramsay are just different class and that’s probably the main difference between Wales and Scotland. The Scots two best players are both left backs, whereas Wales have genuine top class talent capable of making things happen at the top end of the pitch. Wales aren’t the plucky little underdog punching above their weight, they just look like a proper team. They made the semis last time so this isn’t a fluke. Bale doesn’t have that searing pace that once made him one of the most fearsome forwards in the world, but he’s developed his all around game now and he’s just a fantastic footballer on his day. You’re not going to get a full season out of him on top form but when he’s fit and firing he’s brilliant. I looked at how he played in this game and you know what my conclusion was? Bale is the player people keep trying to claim Pogba is. Strength, power, technique, vision, world class passing, composure, decision making.

  4. This past season Liverpool left both football fans and bettors alike scratching their heads. Runaway championship winners last year, many expected them too easily stroll to another title. The way they played left many in doubt that the title would be returning to Anfield for a second successive year. Yet a combination of many things has ensured it will be a trophyless season for the Reds. Last season, bettors were rubbing their hands with glee as Liverpool delivered result after result giving consistent payouts to punters. Their home form was superb, winning 18 out 19 games, the only blemish on that record being a home draw against Burnley. Although the odds were not great on these home wins, their reliability meant that having a bet in an online casino on a Liverpool victory would have ensured profits throughout the season. However, this is all a thing of the past as Liverpool has been far more unpredictable this season. Yet, there have still been ways that Liverpool has entertained the fans and still kept the punters happy. Let's take a look at a few of the options available that would have kept the money coming. Same Familiar Goalscorers Although the season has been a letdown for the fans, betting followers of Mohammed Salah will not have been disappointed. He is currently second in the charts for top goalscorer of the season, only to Tottenham's Harry Kane, with 20 and 21 goals respectively. The prolific striker continues to guarantee payouts for fans of the Anytime Goalscorer markets. Odds are typically available for this kind of bet on any online casino or betting site. If you wish to get better odds for your goalscorer picks, some bettors go down the route of trying to pick the First Goalscorer. Own goals usually do not count in this and the chances are good a striker like Salah will give a good return on this throughout a season. However, as opposed to Anytime Scorer, once the first goal goes in your bet is over. Let's hope your choice does the business. Troublesome Players Since Jurgen Klopp arrived at Liverpool in 2015, their card count has been dropping constantly, which can only be a good thing regarding suspensions. Yet a closer look reveals the same players offending, which can be an interesting way to make some extra cash. These days an online kaszinók or a sportsbook website can offer odds on players to be booked in almost every match. You no longer need to visit the high street bookmaker which can make football betting more convenient. Players such as Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara feature at the top of this list for Liverpool so they are worth keeping an eye on. Another two to take note of are Ozan Kabak and Sadio Mane. Kabak only signed in January and was thrust straight into the starting lineup due to Liverpool's defensive crisis. He has struggled to adapt to the fast pace of the Premier League and has already picked up a few bookings. While Mane's goal-scoring prowess has dropped off this season, he has racked up a few bookings usually at good odds. Many footballers are well known for gambling but it's unclear whether they use this angle. However, you can take advantage of this if you are not sure about betting on the standard match result market. Corner Kings This is a prime example of how Liverpool can continue to payout. A relatively unknown bet and not one many bettors would think of. While it is common for some people to bet on how many corners will be taken in the game itself, most online casinos now offer straight team-to-team matchups. With Liverpool being a top-of-the-table team who like to attack, you can be sure of winning some cash here. Especially at Anfield, they usually come out of this market on top. If you are confident, or just wish to search for better odds, you could play Liverpool on the corner handicap bet. So for example, if you bet Liverpool -2 corner handicap, and Liverpool comfortably outscores the other team 10 - 4 on corners, then your bet is a winner. Liverpool will always be trying to score to win the game. And although they may not do so, you can cash in from their efforts. Online Betting Sites The explosion of online casinos and betting sites has made a great variety of bets like this possible. You can log in to online casino Deutschland, ones in the UK or off=shore. Choices like Both Teams To Score and Over/Under Goals are all freely available to wager on these sites. Land-based bookmakers and casinos have been hit hard by Covid-19, but in truth, they seem to be in decline anyway. The sheer scope of bets and games online seems to be the way forward. Take your time to browse around and see which casino site best suits your needs. Platforms like mobile phones or tablets no longer make it an arduous trek to your local bookie to put on a bet. Bets in an online casino take seconds. If you are registered, deposits are instant and if you are lucky enough to win, withdrawals can be very quickly received into your bank account. No more worrying about lugging around wads of cash. Online casinos also can have generous sign-up bonuses for you to take advantage of. If you use some of these to bet on Liverpool, you can start to watch your pot grow straight away. There are also some top casinos in Liverpool for when you visit and some also take sports bets. Summary Followers of Liverpool and gamblers alike have been let down a lot this year. It has not been an easy procession to another title as people envisaged. Yet some things have remained steady and not disappointed. The form of Mohammed Salah has probably been the one shining light of the season. Bettors like reliability so players like Salah, Fabinho, and Thiago stand out in different markets. Just choose which avenue of betting you feel you would enjoy most and get stuck in. Corners have been a bet that can be followed pretty confidently. With this forward-minded team and their attacking threat, this is a fun gamble and also makes the game entertaining to watch as you pray for an assault on the opposition goal. Online Casinos have all these bets and more in one-stop easy to access sites. So with careful choices, Liverpool can keep your pockets lined in these troubled times.
  5. Shirt sponsorship deals are big business in sports in general and the English Premier League in particular. For the longest time, this battlefield has been the forte of gambling companies. And, it seems that is not changing anytime soon. The biggest gaming names, including at least two casino sites in the top 10 UK online casinos list, have confirmed deals with clubs for the upcoming 2021/22 season. According to FourFourTwo, a football news, features, and statistics blog, almost half of the 20 shirt sponsors of the Premier League teams during the last season were gambling firms. The number remains the same for the coming season, with eight sponsors being betting sites. A Game of Singing Chairs The breadth of the casino sites is only as deep as their pockets. Their influence is not only limited to the Premier League; instead, in all the echelons of the English Football League system. Two of the three teams joining the top league from the Championship have a betting or casino site as a sponsor. Besides, Crystal Palace, Leeds United, and Fulham have replaced one gambling brand for another. Despite the apparent dominance in the league, not one of the traditional top six teams will don the logo of a gambling brand either on the shirtfront or sleeve. This phenomenon possibly points to the abundant options available to top clubs. Besides, gambling brands prefer partnerships with smaller clubs where they often outbid non-gambling companies. Locational Spread As you would expect, almost all the betting companies represented in the EPL shirts come from traditional gambling strongholds of Malta, Gibraltar, Isle of Man, and Curacao. A rare entrant from the Philippines but a significant participant during the 2020/21 season carry the flame forward. The gambling brands sponsoring shirts in the EPL this season are LaBa360, who sponsor Burnley, W88 donned by Crystal Palace, and ManBetX, the shirt sponsor for Wolverhampton Wanderers. Fun88 sponsors Newcastle United, while Sportsbet.io is the principal shirt sponsor of Watford and Southampton. Betway remains with West Ham United, while Dafabet’s long-running deal with the newly-promoted Norwich City continues. Sleeve Sponsorships Aside from the shirtfronts, the English Premier League has since the 2017/18 season allowed teams to carry logos on the sleeves. While the sleeve is not a prime location, it has attracted several brands. In the 2020/21 season, 17 clubs donned logos on the sleeves. Of the 17, Aston Villa has a running deal with LT Game, a subsidiary of Macau’s Paradise Entertainment Limited. Burnley ditched LoveBet mid-season in 2020 in a deal worth £7.5 million a year, and it is clear the new deal with LaBa360 provides for shirtfronts only. The three remaining teams in the league without shirt sleeve sponsorship, Everton, Aston Villa, and Brentford, may attract new deals. Now, it is wait-and-see if they will bag gambling firms when the deals are sealed. Meanwhile, the shirt sleeve sponsorship, which is dominated by other segments of the economy, may soon attract even more casino sites.
  6. Ah bloody hell Scotland. I’d really been looking forward to getting behind them and seeing them make some waves but they got off to such a demoralising start by losing to the Czechs. They played ok and gave it a go but a lack of quality cost them in the end. They’ve got some good players but they don’t have a striker and without a striker you’ve got nothing, as better teams than Scotland will also discover before this tournament is out. That really was the difference here. The Czech centre forward scored two great goals while the Scots had Sick Boy from Trainspotting bustling around up front looking like he was off his face on smack. Before the game I saw the team and asked in the group chat “who or what in the blue hell is a Lyndon Dykes?” The answer is he’s a crap striker who plays in the Championship. I can’t believe he started ahead of Che Adams, who isn’t great but he’s decent enough. The whole starting line up seemed weird to me though. Granted, Tierney was out injured (yet was in full training the next day) but Billy Gilmore was left out as well as Adams and Ryan Fraser. I wonder if anyone has told Steve Clarke that if Gilmore is good enough to be getting games for the European Champions then he’s good enough to get in the Scotland team. The Scots are up against it enough without leaving out their best players, but in fairness I can live with them losing this one and also the Croatia game if they were to beat England. With their best eleven out there they’ve got a chance, but it’s tough to see where the goals will come from. They played some good stuff against the Czechs and Robbo was fucking great. He could have even got on the scoresheet but as we’ve seen plenty of times he’s not great in that situation and his finishing is a bit shit. If he improved on that he’d be scoring half a dozen a season for us easily with the positions he gets into. Schik put the Czechs in front somewhat against the run of play with a brilliant header and then he added a world class second with a first time shot from halfway that looped over Marshall and left him in a heap in the back of the net. Keeper is too high up the pitch and Hendry should never have been trying to shoot in the situation he was in (leaving his defence exposed with a two v two), but fuck me that was a glorious strike by the forward. It’s unfair to blame Marshall for his positioning when he’s almost certainly been told to do that. Most keepers would rather be on the edge of the their own box and those who are pushed up usually aren’t that high through choice, but coaches no doubt feel the potential gains from them cutting out through balls is worth the risk of the occasional worldy like this one. It’s not the coach who ends up looking like a twat though, wrapped up in the netting and the subject of a thousand memes. They said on commentary that Schick was transferred between two Italian teams for £40m a few years back. That blew my mind. Is that where we are now, that players can go for that kind of money and half the football watching public have never even heard of them? Not just that, but £40m is actually closer to £80m when it’s Italian teams involved as they’re bad mingebags and don’t like spending more than they have to. Always crying poverty those fuckers. *Ok, so I googled that and it’s not true. Sampdoria signed him for €4m then sold him to Roma for €22m. In between that Juve activated a buy out clause of €30m but he failed a medical and it didn’t happen. Not sure where they got their €40m from but I’m relieved to know my stereotype of Italian teams being tight cunts has been re-enforced. The second goal was a killer really. Scotland had their moments but it wouldn’t go in for them. They waited 23 years for this and it was a bit of a damp squib. No-one will give a fuck though as long as they get something on Friday. Three points might be enough to qualify as one of the third placed teams so although this was a big blow it needn’t be fatal. Tell you what though, if the Scots are looking for inspiration they best get those Braveheart DVDs out because it ain’t coming from their coach. If there’s a more boring, uninspiring man on the planet than Steve Clarke then I hope to never meet him. Jesus he’s fucking hard work to listen to.

  7. Two months ago I’d made up my mind I wasn’t going to watch a single minute of the Euros, other than maybe Scotland games. I just wanted the season over and then the plan was to forget about footy completely until August. Then the Reds went on a run, we finished the season well, fans were back in stadiums and suddenly… well, footy didn’t seem quite so bad. Plus I need you to keep subscribing over the summer and I have to give something back in return, so here we are with the round ups again. First off, and long time readers will be expecting this, the thing I’ve been looking forward to the most - the Italian National Anthem. Fucking sensational. After watching that before the opening game I toyed with the idea of switching off as that was definitely going to be the highlight of the whole tournament for me. Hopefully they go all the way to to the final. Not arsed if they win it or not but the more times we see that the better. I have to say the Turkish players belted out their anthem with just as much gusto but the tune was shit so it’s entirely forgettable. Makes me laugh whenever I see the Italy anthem trending on twitter and you get all these flag shaggers complaining that England players never show that kind of passion singing their anthem. Just a thought, but maybe them having to sing about God and Queen just doesn’t really stir the old passions in the way an Italian or French anthem does? Plus there’s the other issue that being English absolutely fucking sucks as the country is populated by morons who number sufficiently to ensure that it’s governed by cunts. It’s mainly just the song being shit though. You’ve got to have Stuart Pearce levels of Brexitness to be able to get passionate about that. Anyway, the opening game got under way when the ball was driven onto the field on a remote control car. What the fuck? I think I liked it though if I’m being honest. Looking at the team line up on the screen I didn’t even know half the players in the Italy team because I don’t watch Serie A and other than Juve, Italian teams have done fuck all in Europe for years. The first take I had from this game was that Chiellini thinks he’s Joel Matip with all those little forward forays. The second take I had was that Turkey aren’t going to score a goal in this tournament. Not with that big old statue up front. He’s the captain, he’s 35 and he kept getting caught offside all the time even though he wasn’t trying to run in behind. He was just stood offside every time the ball was played up to him and the one time he tried to run he was outpaced by Chiellini and threw himself to the floor looking for a pen. He looked like a Sunday League player but he’s just won the farmer’s league with Lille so he must have something, I guess. Italy looked good in the first half but struggled to break down Turkey’s blanket 11 man defence. Fuck me they were negative weren’t they? Turkey looked so scared I can only think someone must have told them Christmas was coming. The opening goal eventually came early in the second half when Berardi fired in a cross and it hit one of the Turkey defenders in the chest and bounced in. Immobile made it 2-0 with a rebound and the lively Insigne added a third. He was subbed immediately afterwards, which wasn’t a surprise as he’d ran his tiny little legs off. They should have sent that remote control car back on to give the little guy a well deserved ride off the field. I was pleasantly surprised by how good Italy were, especially as I knew so little about them beforehand. There are three players in their squad from Sassuolo, whoever the hell they are. I don’t know where Sassuolo is or if indeed it is even a place, or just a name like Lazio, Juventus or Sampdoria. Not sure if the inclusion of three of their players shows how strong or how weak that league is now. Used to be that their entire squad would be taken from the Milan clubs, Juve, Roma and Lazio and they were all household names. There are no stars in this team. Not one. Yet I’ve rarely seen them play as positively as this. This was the first time ever they’d scored more than two in a game at the Euros, which is an incredible stat really. They don’t look like Italy any more, either in playing style or visually. The Italian side lost a lot of its magic for me when they stopped having the best hair in these tournaments and the team started to look like extras from Gomorrah. Every one of the fuckers is covered in tattoos and they all have the same haircuts. If UEFA allowed it they’d be wearing bubble coats, smoking ciggies and riding onto the pitch on scooters too. They get a pass on all this though because… well, the anthem. I thought the atmosphere in the stadium was shite. Virtually no singing and the only noise came from Turks who were booing whenever Italy had the ball, which was pretty much all game as Turkey couldn’t put more than two passes together all night. It remains to be seen whether Turkey are this bad or if Italy were just really fucking good. I suspect a little of both. Italy played with a pace and intensity I don’t think I’ve ever seen from them before. Their pressing was great and even at 2-0 they didn’t sit back and kept looking for more goals. The only thing that stops me going all in on rooting for Italy to win it is Mancini. I’d forgotten how much I disliked him but seeing him preening on the touchline brought it all back. Pretentious wanker. Based on this though he’s completely transformed how Italy play, so I’ll praise him through gritted teeth.

  8. Sunday Jun 6: Hendo plays 45 minutes and misses a penalty in a 1-0 friendly win. He shrugged it off afterwards saying “I’ve missed more important ones than that” and all hell broke loose amongst the Union Jack nonce crowd. You can virtually guarantee that all of these tits who see “England” and “Englishness” as the most important thing in life have Union Jacks or a George’s Cross in their twitter handles. Hendo is a disgrace to his country apparently because he doesn’t see missing a penalty in a warm up game as being anything to lose sleep over. This is one of many reasons I’ll be rooting for Scotland in the Euros. The only people on earth who hate England fans as much as I do are the Scots. According the Mirror, Big Dunc has turned down the chance to go to Real Madrid with Carlo because he wants to manage Everton. In similar news, I’ve turned down the chance to play in this year’s British Open at Royal St George’s because I’ve joined the Beacon in Skem and want to focus on playing there. Monday Jun 7: So Gini’s reported wage with PSG is going to be around 250k a week. It’s easy to say “that’s why he left” but that doesn’t tell the whole story, as if PSG hadn’t come in at the 11th hour he was joining Barca for half that amount, so 125k a week. He was worth at least 150k a week to us as that’s what Hendo and Milner are/were on (I assume Milly took a pay cut when he signed his last deal). We don’t know what the club offered or what Gini was asking, but I don’t think whatever deal he’s signed with PSG gives us any indication of anything really. We’ll probably never know exactly why they couldn’t agree on terms, it just frustrates me that it came to this. Losing Emre Can on a free was one thing, this is another entirely. Meanwhile, Calvert-Lewin pledges his (very short term future) to the Blues. “I am happy at Everton. I worked hard to become number nine & score goals like I did recently. Personally, I have the ambition to one day play in the Champions League & win titles. But for now, I'm happy at Everton." He’s too good for them now. He should be playing for an Aston Villa or a Leeds. Not that he’d get in the Leeds team as they have my boy Bamford, but you get my point. Calvert-Lewin is too good for Everton but not yet good enough for the very top teams. He’d be good for Spurs if Kane were to leave but Kane isn’t leaving so it’s moot. Mind you, maybe City should be looking at him as Aguero’s replacement as most of his goals come in the six yard box and no-one creates more tap ins for forwards than City. Calvert-Lewin and Sterling would be falling over each other to get on the end of all those cut backs. And I’m sure Everton wouldn’t mind allowing him to join their pals and fight the good fight against us. Probably even give them mates rates on the fee.

  9. Monday May 31: Aguero “We all know that Barcelona are the best club in the world. I think I made a great decision to be here and of course it is a step forward in my career.” The disrespect there. Fucking hell. There’s not too much wrong with what he said, but his seat in the Man City dressing room isn’t even cold yet and he’s shitting on them like that. Reminds me a little of when Owen joined United and was giving it the “I always wanted to play here for Sir Alex” even though it was an absolute lie and he turned them down several times when he was a kid. It was a complete lack of regard for our feelings though, and I expect City fans feel slighted by this. Although maybe not as the only thing those sad cunts have shown any kind of passion about in years was that bottle of ale that hit their bus. Aguero is their greatest ever player, they’ve paid him a fucking boatload of cash (most of it off the books) and he could have asked to leave for Barca at any point. He didn’t though, he only signed for ‘the best club in the world’ when City decided they didn’t want to pay him any more. Little fucking prick. Fuck him, fuck City and fuck Barcelona. Meanwhile, bit demoralising that I’m reading talk of how VAR can be improved. No. Just no. Never mind trying to improve it, just FUCKING GET RID. Trying to improve it. Fucking hell. You don’t try and fix a car while it’s on the motorway. All these VAR issues should have been sorted before it was ever implemented. We’ve had two years of this shit and the second year was massively WORSE than the first. Everyone hates it. Managers, players, fans. You literally do not hear any manager or player saying they like it, but lots have said they can’t stand it, so why is this still a thing? I’ll tell you why, because managers, players and fans do fuck all except moan about it. Instead of that, we should all be joining forces to get this shit scrapped. It isn’t on the fans to do it though, this is something players and managers should lead the way with. If they all went on strike until VAR was fucked off, the fans would be behind it and the authorities would shit themselves and bin it in a heartbeat, because what choice would they have? It won’t happen though, we’ll just have the likes of Dean Smith, Nuno Holy Spirit (if he takes another job), Kloppo, Milner, Moyes, Dyche and others making great points about how shit it is and how they’d rather not have it, and fuck all will change. They’re killing footy with this shit. I renewed my season ticket last week but my Dad has called it quits. There are a few reasons for it but the first thing he’ll say is VAR and how it just isn’t the same anymore. He’s watched footy his whole life and has been going to Anfield since the late 50s. He’s seen all sorts of changes to the game and although he didn’t like a lot of them he rolled with it and it didn’t ruin his enjoyment. Until VAR. He reckons footy is shit now, almost unwatchable, and I agree with him. I’d bring back the death penalty for the cunts that inflicted this on us.

  10. Saturday May 22: Wow, as far as tributes go this one is pretty spectacular by Klopp. “Gini Wijnaldum. An LFC legend now and forever. What this person – this wonderful, joyful, selfless person – has done for our team and club I cannot sum up in words in truth because my English is not good enough. “He is an architect of our success. We have built this Liverpool on his legs, lungs, brain and his huge, beautiful heart. “If – and it is still is if – he goes, he does so knowing we as his teammates are eternally grateful for having this special human being come into our lives. I love him and he will always be family.” I’m intrigued by the ‘and it is still if’ part though. Why add that if it is definite that he’s leaving? I feel a bit like Lloyd Christmas here, but is he telling us there’s still a chance? Meanwhile, “Hamez” has taken the last couple of Everton games off due to ‘fatigue’ and posted this picture on his instagram, causing something of a fume with our neighbours. The irony in this is off the fucking scale. They signed him due to his social media clout, they bragged about him having more instagram followers than LFC, they embraced all these new fans from Colombia, and now they’re crying about the ‘content’ he’s putting out. It’s that content that got him all those followers, so you live by the smartphone you die by the smartphone. Losers.

  11. So that’s it for another year then. Is it me or has final day been shite for years now? There doesn’t seem to be much drama at either end of the table. Even the other year when the title race went down to the last day everyone knew that City would beat Brighton so there was never the possibility of any real drama, and the relegation spots seem to be getting decided earlier each year too. This was shite really. The only thing of any consequence up for grabs were third and fourth. That was interesting and had some drama due to Leicester and Chelsea both failing to to take care of business, unlike the Mighty Reds (yeah we’re mighty again now). I expected that I’d feel sorry for Leicester if they missed out, but I actually don’t. They were given two penalties against Spurs, had the lead twice, and still somehow managed to lose to a team with nothing to play for. They completely bottled it but it’s probably not a bad thing for them really. They won the FA Cup so it’s been a memorable season for them and let’s be honest here, Brendan is abysmal in Europe so the Champions League was probably biting off more than they could chew. Maybe the Europa League will be better for them, and I don’t mean that in a condescending way either. They could actually win that if Brendan doesn’t get in his own way. You can argue that Leicester deserved top four but the season is 38 games and they finished where they finished. Had they beaten Spurs they'd have been in, but they didn't. Maybe they deserved it ahead of Chelsea who ended the season with Jorginho as their top scorer on seven goals (all pens). That’s fucking scandalous given how much they’ve spent on forwards, but let's not forget that they had to overcome being managed by Lampard for over half a season so overall they’ve done well. We overcame all kinds of shit too so I don’t think anyone can dispute our right to be in there. It does seem a bit sly on Leicester that they’ve spent virtually the whole of the last two seasons in the top four and then dropped out on the final day both times, but the season lasts for 38 games, not 37, and they didn't learn the lesson from last year. Their game with Spurs was pretty wild. They led through a Vardy pen after he’d been tripped by Alderweireld. Somehow Anthony Taylor failed to spot that and needed VAR to correct him. He’s going to the Euros though. Our best ref, apparently. Jeez. Vardy scored the pen and Leicester were briefly third. That changed when we took the lead in our game. Then Kane scored his customary goal which won him the Golden Boot and things got complicated. Leicester were fifth but Chelsea were losing at Villa courtesy of a fluke by Traore, which kicked the ball onto his standing foot and it lopped into the top corner. We were in great shape but Leicester and Chelsea’s fates were in the balance. Leicester were given a second penalty, and this one was a fucking joke. Blatant dive by Vardy yet this time Taylor gave it and VAR backed him up. So yeah, that baldy manc fuck got both penalty decisions wrong. Vardy converted again and Leicester were back up to fourth. There was more penalty drama, this time at Villa Park when Traore was clipped by Jorginho and El Ghazi made it 2-0. Chelsea were in big trouble now but Chilwell’s goal put them back up to fourth on goal difference. Leicester needed a goal but ended up conceding one instead when Schmeichel punched into his own net. It was a brutal day for him as he’d earlier let Kane’s volley go through his legs, but that second goal gets disallowed more often than not as he was definitely impeded. It got worse for Leicester when they got done on the break and Kane set up Bale to make it 3-2. Again, that usually gets disallowed as the ball bounced up and hit Kane’s hand. Not deliberate, completely unavoidable and I don’t want to see goals disallowed for that, but isn’t that the rule? If the ball hits the hand of the goalscorer or the player who plays the final pass to the goalscorer, it doesn’t count. So I’m not sure how this was allowed, but given the two penalties they were awarded Leicester don’t have too much grounds for complaint. Bale rubbed further salt in the wounds deep into stoppage time as Spurs secured their spot in the Europa Conference for next season. Better them than us, that’s all I can say.

  12. Well, wouldn't it be handy to have a crystal ball to predict the future? The joy and indeed agony for football bettors continue. Who would have believed at the start of the football season Liverpool would find themselves in so much trouble this year? Runaway champions last year, far superior in every department to all other teams, battling to even get in the top four this season. They were very much heavy favourites at the bookmakers to retain their title and in truth, it was hard to look past them. Another era of dominance similar to the ‘80s looked extremely likely. Yet, close to the end of the season, they find themselves in danger of missing out on qualification for the Champions League. This has absolutely baffled their die-hard supporters and left other clubs gleefully taking their place at the top of the table. Let's take a look at a few reasons why they went from favourite to loser so quickly. Injuries to players This is a big one, probably the main reason why Liverpool struggled to maintain the absolutely stellar efforts of last season. Their star defender, Virgil van Dijk, who tightened up their backline in their pursuit of glory ruptured his cruciate ligament in October against Everton and has been out since. His defensive partner Joe Gomez got injured while playing for England thus denying Liverpool the opportunity to select their first choice central defensive pairing. These two injuries, in particular, caused major damage to Liverpool as it resulted in many changes to the backline. Inexperienced players were given the chance to play which didn't work so well. Players were chosen to play out of position in order to solve this problem, however, this only tended to weaken the areas they normally played in, such as midfield. To make matters worse, Joel Matip, their main experienced backup defender, was ruled out for the rest of the season due to injury. Their new striker, Diogo Jota, signed from Wolves as extra backup and indeed competition for Liverpool's famed strike force got injured in a Champions League game which had no significance as Liverpool had already qualified. The players poor form Unusually, a lot of Liverpool's reliable and productive players have just not performed consistently this season. Their three-pronged attack force of Salah, Mane, and Firmino have just not been able to repeat their devastating prowess in front of the goal this season. A lack of goals, coupled with a makeshift defense, has led to some surprising results this season. Bettors using online casino sites like kazino igre have been scratching their heads as Liverpool have made hard work of games that seem so easy on paper. Their goalkeeper Allison, unusually, made quite a few poor mistakes this season, costing valuable points. The Lack of Fans All clubs could point to the continuing lack of fans due to Covid-19 restrictions to explain strange results. However, Liverpool has had a very special relationship throughout the years with their fans. The atmosphere at their home games played at Anfield stadium is usually electric, filled with people cheering and singing, waving flags and banners. It has spurred them on to many great performances and victories. However, this year they suffered far too many defeats at so-called fortress Anfield, costing them far too many points. Involvement in other competitions Despite sweeping teams aside in the Premier League last year, Liverpool did not have much success in the other cup competitions. That trend continued this year with season curtain-raising Community Shield being surprisingly lost, albeit on penalties to Arsenal. Not long after, they were knocked out of the EFL Cup, also by Arsenal, and again on penalties. These losses were a huge blow to a team that was seen as invincible and pretty much favorites at each online casino site for every game or competition they were in. However, worse was to come as they were knocked out of the F.A. Cup by their most famous rivals, Manchester Utd, in a thrilling game of football at Old Trafford. This completely shattered their confidence and while it did not trigger an immediate downturn in performance and results, this came about not too long after. This poor run of form could cost them dearly as they chase fourth place. The Improvement of Other Teams There are a number of teams who have benefited as Liverpool have fallen away and went into a semi-decline. This is not to say that these teams would not have been surging up the table anyway as standards have improved. There was not much activity in the transfer window, apart from Chelsea, due to Covid-19 and football clubs’ finances being stretched to the limit. Chelsea, who started very well, also fell away before parting ways with their manager, Frank Lampard. His replacement Thomas Tuchel seems to have the Blues back on track. Leicester continue their assault on the top four playing attacking football under Brendan Rodgers. Even West Ham and Everton are getting in on the act, constantly in or around the top four. Everyone is eager to take Liverpool's place as they stumble towards the end of the season. The top two spots are occupied by the Manchester clubs, City and Utd. With Man City taking full advantage of Liverpool's slips to relentlessly march towards another trophy. Manchester Utd has seen dramatic improvement under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and it looks like they will seal second place. All of this has proved very disheartening for Liverpool fans and bettors alike as they expected another easy romp to the title. Summary As the season comes near to a conclusion, football fans and bettors alike are bemused by the situation Liverpool find themselves in.Injuries hit hard in a variety of positions to seriously harm the club’s chances of consecutive titles. Players who seemed unstoppable last year seemed a shadow of their former selves. The uninspiring task of playing in an empty stadium didn't do much to help matters. The lack of progress in other competitions dented the fear factor that had developed around other teams playing Liverpool. Certain teams have taken advantage of their poor season and cemented their own claims on the title or indeed Champions League spots. Fans of the club will be hoping they finish the season strongly and come back next season ready to fight for the title they surrendered so meekly.
  13. Report by Dave Usher So third then eh? It’s quite remarkable given where we were in March. The first third of the season was great, the final third was too, but that middle third almost killed us. To be able to recover from that deserves a lot of credit. Jurgen and the players stuck together and turned it around. I’m not sure how, but then I’m not sure how it got quite so bad in the first place. It was just a weird fucking season and not just for us either. Even the shit teams had a wild, unexplainable ride. Everton losing nine games at Goodison while looking a pretty good side on their travels (last day humiliation at City notwithstanding) is hard to explain. Burnley not being able to buy a win at home but picking up enough points on the road to survive comfortably is equally weird. United being virtually invincible away from home. Just a fucked up season. 99% of the shit that happened has to be due to fans being absent so hopefully we’ll see things get back to something close to normality next season. That third place finish will boil a lot of piss as we were the butt of a lot of jokes for a long time this season. Not so funny now though, eh? Chelsea and Leicester both went the full Jean Van Der Velde and our lads held their nerve to take advantage. If there is any image to sum up this season it’s Phillips and Williams, both bloodied and battered, celebrating at full time in front of the Kop. I fucking love that photo and I love both of those lads. Regardless of what happens in the future, what those two did deserves the gratitude and admiration of every Red. Imagine back in August if you’d been told that we’d play the last ten games of the season with those two and Ozan Kabak rotating at centre back and that we’d win eight and draw two (the two we drew were when Nat was injured). I think Fabinho played a couple of those games too, but you get the point. This is the maddest season in history for so many reasons. We just kept getting punched in the fucking face. There was a period where the lads stopped fighting back and it looked like they were beaten (the meek as fuck derby loss at Anfield was the point when I really started to become pissed off with them), but they got off the canvas at the nine count and then came fucking roaring back. Winning eight of the last ten despite the injury list we had (wasn’t just the centre backs) was commendable and, although I hesitate to say this, I think we have to say this season was a successful one in the end based on where we were a couple of months ago. Success is subjective and it doesn’t always require silverware. Context is king, and given everything we endured this year I think it’s fair to say that retaining the title was an impossible task. So finishing third, in this context, is a form of success. This is just a teaser, click here to view the full report Please note that Match Reports are only available to website subscribers.

  14. Monday May 17: According to the Athletic, Trent won’t be going to the Euros and what he’s done in the last couple of games is “too little too late”. If he doesn’t go he should just tell England to fuck off altogether as frankly it would be the most ridiculous non-selection in the history of English football. Too little too late implies he’s been shite all season and has pulled a Gareth Bale and turned it on in the last few weeks. He’s been our best player in 2021, it’s just that in the last month he’s really hit form and is now back to his very best. Alongside Kane, he’s England’s most talented and accomplished player by a fucking mile. If Southgate wants to pick Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker and Reece James (who I like) ahead of him then while I feel bad for Trent, it’s fucking hilarious as the incompetence would be staggering. I don’t think it will happen though. Southgate is a fucking wet lettuce, he doesn’t have the balls to make a decision that controversial. In other news, I was just thinking, remember when Everton fans flooded the charts with old cup final songs earlier in the season because they won four games #wedontknowthemeaningoflosing Tuesday May 18: Ancelotti is asked how to fix Everton’s home form and says “I’m not a magician I am only a trainer”. Hmmm, not sure about that as ‘Carlo Fantastico’ defo sounds more like a magician’s name to me. Like the Great Raymondo, last seen leaving Raquel’s flat to retrieve a suitcase thrown out of a window by Del Boy in the Jolly’s Boys Outing. Greatest episode of a comedy show ever that one. When Del realises there’ nothing going on between Raquel and the Great Raymondo and he goes all posh and says “Oh dear, I seem to have thrown your suitcase out of the window”. Kills me every time that. Anyway, no idea how I ended up on the Jolly Boys Outing but I make no apologies for going off on that tangent. Klopp says Jota has a tiny chance of playing at the weekend. The bench is the best he could hope for and maybe Hendo might be on there too. He's close apparently. Can't believe how long he's been out when they initially said he had a chance of being back for the second Madrid game. Has Klopp ever been truthful about an injury?

  15. The penultimate round up of the season and it was another good week for us. Heroics from Alisson at the weekend to beat the Baggies and then a more routine three points at Turf Moor saw us ramp up the pressure on Chelsea and - especially Leicester - and we now go into the final fixture in fourth spot, with the potential to move up or down one. I’m sure you’ve all seen that incredible stat about Leicester being in the top four for something like 68 out of the last 70 weeks or something mad, yet they’re staring down the barrel of another fifth place finish. It’s staggering, but if that happens at least they’ve got the FA Cup to console themselves with. That wouldn’t be much consolation to any of the ‘big six’ but Leicester had never won it before so it actually meant something to them. It was quite refreshing to see actually, and not just because Chelsea were on the receiving end. I didn’t watch any of it live but I saw the scenes of celebrations on the news and it was a little weird with there being a crowd there. Normally I’m not happy for anyone else as I tend to hate everyone, and had it been Villa, Newcastle or Everton fans enjoying themselves at Wembley I’d have felt differently, but I was actually quite pleased for Brendan and Leicester. I also knew that they were almost certainly going to lose the league game with Chelsea a few nights later, because that’s how it always goes. It’s weird how often the teams that meet in the cup final seem to have to face each other either immediately before or after it in the league. I might be totally wrong there and I can’t be arsed checking, but that’s how it feels. Same as when two English clubs meet in Europe it always seems to be right around the same time of a league meeting between them. Whoever won the final was going to lose the league game because it’s hard to play with the same motivation so soon after, against the same opponent who are now looking for revenge. Remember when we absolutely fucking battered Chelsea a few days after they beat us at Wembley? Carroll and Shelvey running wild. I think a young Hendo scored a beauty that night too. So yeah, Leicester were always losing at Stamford Bridge and it should have been by a bigger margin than 2-1. It was an eventful game though with lots of talking points. Firstly there was a bizarre decision by Mike Dean when Werner got in front of Tielemans and the Leicester man just booted the back of his leg. Blatant pen but he gave the free-kick AGAINST Werner. In fairness it was a split second incident and I don’t blame Dean for not seeing it clearly on first view, but what the fuck is VAR doing there? Incredible. It’s not like VAR wasn’t getting involved in everything else. Werner had one ruled out for offside and then another for handball. Why was he even celebrating that? He knew he missed it with his head and that the ball went in off his arm, but he gave it the full beans anyway. That goal was NEVER going to stand and he must have known. He’s not too bright though is he? I mean he spends more time offside than Jack Grealish does breaking lockdown. Rudiger put Chelsea in front and then VAR overturned an error by Dean to give Chelsea a penalty rather than a free-kick. Jorginho rolled in the penalty and at this point it looked like Leicester were going to get thumped, which would have been a good outcome for us given the potential goal difference ramifications. Sadly that never happened because that Iheancho cunt pulled one back. The chance he buried was remarkably like the one he deliberately fluffed against City in that “Vincent Kompany game” that effectively cost us the title. Fuck that game throwing twat. It all kicked off late on when Ricardo went in hard on Chilwell and it sparked mass handbags. Leicester’s players were probably not thrilled abut Chilwell’s celebrations when he thought he’d equalised at Wembley. Both teams have been charged over that incident and personally I thought it was disgraceful and worthy of points deductions.
