It's crazy. In the transfer window season, Sky Sports News create a totally fabricated rumour, accept bets via Sky Bet of this totally fabricated rumour, and obviously no one is paid out as it's a totally fabricated rumour. Even their pundits - Paul Merson, a dude that has lost £'000s of money due to gambling will make a prediction, which will then be linked to a series of results on SkyBet. Why are people falling in the trap? Also, check this out: "Social media tipsters who make financial gain from recommending losing bets to their followers are likely to come in for more questions after it was alleged that they had doctored betting information to persuade their followers of their success. Twitter account @FootyAccums, the most high-profile social media tipster with 537,000 followers, recommended that their followers place an accumulator on Denmark, Montenegro, Northern Ireland and Slovenia all winning their World Cup qualifying matches on Tuesday. Footy Accumulators also recommended that their followers used Bet365 to place the bet, and posted a screenshot of a £10 stake on the bet. However, evidence would suggest that Footy Accumulators actually placed a £1 stake, presumably doctoring the image to show that £10 had been placed. Their mistake was uncovered when they seemingly doctored only part of the information. The mistake was spotted by Twitter user Alistair Wilson, who challenged the tipster by private message. Footy Accumulators initially rejected the claim of fraudulent behaviour, but then reneged on that defence, stating ‘it was only one bet’. Wilson was then blocked by Footy Accumulators, thus ending his line of communication." http://www.football365.com/news/more-questions-for-social-media-betting-tipsters "As things stand, football is by far the most popular sport, with the industry making £580.5 million in profit through wagers placed on football events via the internet between 2015 and 2016, which equates...
It's until 2020, I do wonder if this will affect Antoine Griezmann.
It's all toxic at the Emirates in my opinion, I wonder what will happen to Alexis Sanchez, Given the fact that he's out of contract next summer.
The safe standing debate continues to gather pace in the UK. Historically, all-seater stadium for the top 2 divisions became law following the Taylor Report (Hillsborough). While it has since been argued and accepted that standing was not the direct cause of the disaster, there is still a natural stigma to the idea that football could return to the bad old days. It is important to point out that safe standing does not mean a return to un-ticketed, ‘cram them in’ terraces. Safe standing areas currently employed are still ticketed and still require max allocations in each row, section, and stand. The best examples of safe standing exist in Germany. Most clubs employ such areas in their grounds and we’ve all seen Dortmund and the atmosphere they create. Many argue that the standing section helps to not only create a more vibrant atmosphere but also increases safety in areas that many people already stand in any way. In addition, the configuration of rail seating that Dortmund use means that they have an increased capacity of 81,360 for domestic games. This is reduced for European games, as UEFA do not allow standing. The seated configuration takes it to 65,289. Dortmund achieves this by essentially having 3 people to every two ‘seat spaces’ in the rail seating section. The matches are still all ticketed and ticket holders must still stand in specific spaces, to prevent overcrowding. In Scotland, Celtic have pioneered a similar form of rail seating. The only difference here to Germany, is that each seat space is allocated to only one ticketed person, as laws exist in UK regarding minimum space for allocation. So there is no increase in capacity by having rail seating at Celtic Park, but improved atmospheres, singing etc have been recorded. The Anfield Wrap took a trip up to Scotland to review the changes at Celtic...
