1  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: UEFA Champions League 2024/25 Season on: Today at 10:58:32 AM
There is no doubt about it, the good thing is that in Madrid there is someone with enough hierarchy like Ancelotti who has made himself a Liga player and the UCL player,  Something he was looking to consolidate, for me this year has been wonderful for Madrid, also apart from the personal situation of Mbappť I can't deny that he is a good player, that Ancolotti can easily use him as the only striker that Rodrygo, Bellingham and Vinicius can help him, he really will be very good , it's a shame that such a fundamental piece as Kross has left, if he had at least stayed for one more year it would have been perfect, but oh well , now the Question is to find a good Midfielder who can do Things well.
You are right, Mbappe can get a better ball supply than when he played at Paris Saint Germain. Real Madrid's midfield is filled with players who can supply the ball very well, on the left and right sides they also have players who can send the ball and even penetrate into the opponent's defense area. This is an advantage for Mbappe, so he may not need to work hard because he can be a pure striker who only moves in the penalty box.

At Paris Saint Germain I saw him playing more flexibly, actually that's not a problem and in fact it's good. But again, of course they will follow the instructions of the strategy that will be implemented by the coach. We haven't been able to see what Ancelotti's gameplay will be like after he gets Mbappe. The team is even more complete now that they have the forward line they didn't have this season, and that makes them look even stronger.
If this is about goal contribution, then I would have to say that while Real Madrid have a lot better players than PSG, which means that they will be capable of supporting Mbappe getting better results, it could also be a reason why Mbappe gets the ball less too. I mean there are many great players there, so it means that other players may pass to each other at times and score goals meaning the usage rate of Mbappe may drop, not impossible.

At PSG he was the only one that was the super star, which is why I think it is quite clear that we are going to end up with something quite well for him, he got the ball all the time because he was "the" star there. At Real Madrid many players could play differently and could get the ball instead.

It's not just you who think like this, but almost everyone will also think like that, because what they did this season was truly extraordinary and it attracted a lot of attention to them. Now many people are waiting and want to see how Leverkusen will perform in the Champions League next season, whether they will perform well or vice versa. This is something we usually see if there is a team that usually performs normally but this season performs extraordinary, that will make them get a lot of attention.
Not only them actually, Girona will also receive greater attention than usual after they managed to get to 3rd place in the La Liga standings, which is very difficult to get there. However, there will be differences from Leverkusen and Girona, because Leverkusen finished the season without defeat in the Bundesliga and they only had 1 defeat in all the matches they played this season. So attention to them will be much greater.  
I would guess that Girona situation will be a little sensitive. Because they had one good season so far, that's it. Meaning that they are going to end up with a situation that is going to be quite tough, and I am not sure if we are going to face the same thing again and again. We should probably have some changes in some places, and for that to work, we need to make sure that we are dealing with a good thing and not having any issues.

This could be done with Girona keep getting good players like they did, so they could continue to be good, but that's about it, I do not think that it will be simple. We need to just see Gironas transfer period before we can decide, but I feel like they will probably not be as good this year.

Practically, it's difficult to imagine it happening. AI is being creative with the data given to the database to improve AI's ability to adapt to new situations. I meant that it's difficult to envisage AI being innovative with data stored in its database.
It is difficult for AI's originality to surpass human spontaneity, yet the more data added to the AI's database, the more creative AI becomes.

AI relies on the data in its database; hence, it is impossible for AI to be more creative than the human who created AI. AI is still dependending on human inventiveness, because of it enables AI to adapt to new situations when humans inject their knowledge into the AI's database.
As someone who has been in the creative world for long, it is not really the "talent" of AI that is in question, but more about the fact that it is just doing what humans can do, at a scale, that's it. Imagine it like creating the first assembly line, Henry Ford I believe did that if I am not wrong, did humans not create what they did before that innovation? Of course they did, but it wasn't as quick, now humans make it a lot quicker, all automatic as well, look at any tesla factor for example.

So what AI does, is not really that different from what humans does, it's basically the same, just at bigger numbers and quicker, so it is not an achievement yet, it is not an awe inspiring thing, instead of photoshop, you use midjourney, that's it. If one day it can make something that is better than what any human can do, then we can discuss it.

Social trading is good depending on the level of trader you. If you are beginner, social trading will help your learning so much and will shorten the entire leaning process as you will easily get all the much needed help from the experienced traders within the group, all you need do is to copy their pattern as well as implement all the trading tips they will be dropping often in the discussion group. However, if you are a professional trader, social trading will amount to nothin other than distraction because you will spend most of your time responding to questions of people who might be following your pattern. This might hinder progress somehow and not all individual would want to do that unless the individual decides its his own way of giving back to society.  But in reality, social trading create a kind of community and helps in building confidence and sense of belonging, this improves trading decision making.
I do agree that it would be good for some newbie, but it is not easy for everyone, sometimes it takes time and we need to make sure that we are handling it well enough. Obviously that is not going to be easy at all, we just need to focus on whatever we can do, that's the only point.

This means that we are going to be chasing something that will take a while, and we need to regroup and think about what we can do, if we can do that, then we are going to end up with a much better result without a doubt. This isn't some shady hidden thing, it's easy to see that we are going to see whales and veterans end up doing stuff that newbies will not understand, and newbies will never learn how to trade without help from someone at all if they keep following those people.

We know that the level of competition in the Champions League is not easy even though Atalanta and Leverkusen hold the status of European League finalists. However, both teams have good self confidence, because they had achievements last season. This is different from other Champions League contestants, who managed to get tickets but did not win any domestic trophies. I think the strength of Atalanta and Leverkusen should be taken into account in the Champions League next season, they could be a surprise team, especially as their manager is still at the club. The squad depth of the two teams has not changed much, I think there has actually been an increase, this will be a good sign for them.

The most realistic target that Atalanta or Leverkusen can set is to reach the quarter-finals or semifinals, because I doubt they or any of them can reach the final. The Champions League will actually never be easy for anyone, mentality and experience determine everything there. Apart from all that, the presence of these two teams in the Champions League is an attraction in itself, considering that they had an impressive season last season. Everyone is curious about their performance next season, especially when they play in the Champions League.
Just because they won it or finalist, doesn't mean they will do fine. Look at Sevilla, they won previous season and then became fourth in their group. I mean that is a bad example of course because I think both Atalanta and Leverkusen should be considered better than Sevilla, that is true, but still, we are talking about a whole new level of talent when we move from Europa to UCL.

The best thing they could hope for would be going back down, but I think that is not a thing anymore, is it? This new system will take a while before people could actually get used to it, I am looking at it and seeing that it is not going to be all that easy, feeling like we are going to not know how the rules will work without living through the period.
6  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Italian League Prediction Thread (Serie A) on: June 21, 2024, 06:51:32 PM
Agree. Juventus must sign experienced players but not too old players. I don't know if Motta already makes a plan for buying some players. However, he really needs to rebuild this team because the squad looks not really promising. TBH, I don't understand why Allegri could build weak squad in the season 2023-2024. It looks like a squad of average teams.
Juventus has so many players who are over 30 years old. This needs to change immediately. They need to evolve into a more dynamic team to fight harder for Serie A titles. Football is changing and dynamic teams are one step ahead now.  Smiley

Motta is a young manager which is a plus for Juventus about this topic. I wouldn't expect him to prefer old player signings much. His system would also be different from Allegri probably. But before anything else, they need new transfers like I said before. If they sign midfielders who can contribute much more to scoring, it isn't too difficult for them to stay in the title competition until the final moments.
This could be the very reason why they lost as well. People think that Juventus suddenly became bad when they were at the top of the list and yet they do not see why. It is obvious why, because we are talking about a team that is filled with old players, which makes it very hard for them to have a win when all these players start to grow tired.

They start the season great, but gradually become more and more tired, and that shows in the results as well. They need a younger setup, at least younger bench, so that they could end up with some subs during the games that could help them. If they keep this old age situation going, then I am pretty sure that we are going to see them not do all that well, they will be pretty bad.
7  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: ⚽ UEFA Euro 2024 in Germany ⚽ - Qualifiers👉Group Stage on: June 21, 2024, 02:54:42 PM
This game is a crucial one for the both teams which will be definitive on who's to leave or stay in the Euro... This year Euro, Croatia team has quite fallen below expectation with just a point in their group B after two games.  On a current stats, Croatia don't stand a better chance to win their next game against Italy who were very unlucky after a tough battle in the meeting with Spain  narrowly winning that game with an own goal from Calafiori. Same Spain that had a cool time beaten Croatia 3 nil.

Except history decides to repeat itself by favouring Croatia against Italy. In all of their 9 meetings record has it that Croatia has won 3 games while Italy won 1 with 5 draws. So probably if Croatia can show a bit of  improvement in that match come 24th June they could light up their chance of surviving the group stage, but a draw won't be of any good for them at all.
Italy focused on defense, and they could do almost nothing in attack, only 1 shot on target in the entire game, which is too little to count on even a draw. And Spain made 20 shots on goal and 8 of them were on target, perhaps the beginning of the match was more or less even, but then Spain controlled everything and they had opportunities to score more. Perhaps Italy will try not to lose to Croatia, because this result will be enough for them, and Croatia will only need a victory.
Italy has always been known for their amazing defense, even before 90's they were known for their defense and grew just better and better. So their hope was that they would defend very well, tire Spain out, because they would run around trying to score, and eventually when Spain is tired, they would use their fast wings and striker to just counter attack and find a goal and keep parking the bus.

This did not happen because Spain knows tiki taka better than anyone else, and they just attacked without tiring themselves out, which made it impossible for Italy to execute their plan, and instead Spain just tired Italy out and eventually a mislap in judgement caused the goal. Spain seems like a good team this tournament, they may go further than I expected.

Altcoin investment is somewhat risky. So you should never rely on other's suggestion. In this case, you must do your own research. The view of others and your view will never be the same. So research the coin you want to invest in beforehand. Suggestions from others will help you reach a decision.
Investing on new projects without checking the background of the project was the risky one.Some projects will give you good profit at the initial stage and the trader who are ready spend some time for the investigation of the project background may not loss their capital.Some fake project also their in the market,the trader should not use their money at the fake project.The own research for the project is more important one,because we canít trust the signals of unknown resource for investment.
I agree, these "signal" people are just faking it at this point, during the 2021 bull run I have seen so many people who charge money for it, the token devs pay these signal guys some money, and the signal guy promotes that token, so in reality there is no signal, it is just promotion but they make it look like it is some expert who is giving an expert opinion about something, which is not the case at all.

I believe that it is going to be quite bad if we do not care about what is going on, and I think we should just realize that everyone out there could scam you as much as they can, some scam people in millions, some in thousands but everyone is trying their best. So do not trust anyone, that's why bitcoin was created in a trustless way.
9  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Germany League - Bundesliga Prediction Thread on: June 20, 2024, 05:30:03 PM
A club sometimes has its own goals, for example, Bayern Munich, which last season was overtaken by Leverkusen, but Bayern Munich prioritizes matches in the Champions League, even though they only reached the semi-finals, but that is proof that a club that has lost in the Bundesliga doesn't necessarily look weak like that what you said and I agree with all of this.

Not being able to occupy 1st position in the points table is not a big problem as long as Leverkusen can perform well in the Champions League as I said above and it is very natural that a club like Leverkusen, which managed to win the title last season, is more enthusiastic about being able to win a higher title, but it must giving up a little position in the domestic league.
Leverkusen I am sure that this club can show its strongest performance in the Champions League as long as it doesn't make many changes to the players, but I am a little doubtful that in the future Xabi Alonso will also prioritize the Bundesliga title and in the end its performance in the Champions League will be slightly affected.
I would feel like it would not be really a team that focuses on one thing. This team is a huge club with a lot of deep pockets, so that means they are capable of building a team that should be able to win the league, and the UCL without focusing on just one of them. I think it was 2020 when they won everything, league, cup, UCL, basically everything. That is why I feel like a defensive statement about how they did not focus on the league and just focused on UCL is just a cheap answer.


This season, they should focus on the league and the UCL at the same time, but if it's true that they can focus on just one, then they should focus on the league, because they need to get back to the top, that is the only way to grow better.
10  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: French Soccer League Predictions and Discussion Thread (Ligue 1) on: June 20, 2024, 04:56:42 PM
Without Kylian Mbappe, PSG will still dominate league 1 but will not succeed in the champions league and this is a simple understanding of what PSG will experience in the coming season when Enrique has to come under pressure from PSG's previous dependence which currently must be changed instantly. Competing with cooperation between other players creates greater strength and I think at the start of the season PSG will experience a little difficulty.
PSG still has Kolo Muani and Goncalo Ramos who will later be Mbappe's replacements and these two players are one of the striker players who are under pressure to be able to perform like Mbappe, while Goncalo Ramos has just joined PSG and cannot yet provide proof that he has the skills. better.

I agree with you that PSG often focus on the attack line and ignore the importance of the role of midfielders who can always provide a big boost to the strikers to be able to score in large numbers and now in the coaching era Enrique must be able to try to prioritize all lines.
This is why I believe that they are going to be just fine. All they did was win the league even when Mbappe was there, sure they have seen Finals at UCL now, but they still didn't win anything.

It means that, this season, first time without Mbappe for many years, all they have to do is win the league, if they can do that, then they are going to be fine. That would match the achievements that they had with Mbappe, meaning that they should not really be worried about it at all, it would be basically the same situation. Would they? I do not know, but I feel like their squad is good enough to win it, and I do not think that it would change all that much, they should be still capable of winning the title if you ask me, even without Mbappe.

Unbelievable really, I'm thinking now that betting on the group stages isnt as predictable
as I before thought.

The big upset of the day was Albania being able to draw wit 2 goals to Croatia, that leaves Croatia
with a job of work to do in their last match against Italy.

Big match today against the top two in Group B and two big names in world soccer Spain v Italy,
I's staying away from betting on this one.
You should have considered that when you watched world cup, lol. I mean think about it, we are talking about a situation where it is Spain and Germany both failing to go up the group stages so that should basically tell you what you need to know.

All jokes aside, yeah group stages aren't always that clear cut, and it would be basically a situation where it is not that great, we should consider the fact that we are not going to end up with anything that crazy, and we need to make it work one way or another. Betting isn't that hard, winning is the hard part, so  we could maybe wait until the group stages is over? Not that it would fully end, because shocking results happen all the time so if we want to bet we should try our best at every stage.

If Joselu leaves Real Madrid and joins another club, there is no guarantee that he will get a chance to play regularly for that club. It may also be important for him to get some time off the bench for Real Madrid instead of sitting on the bench for another weaker team. As the prime time of his career has passed he may not worry about his career now and will stay at Real Madrid as long as Real Madrid try to keep him. It is different for all the other players as all the other players played in Real Madrid's regular XI which resulted in Real Madrid selling them when they were relatively old so that they could employ a younger player in that place.   

Joselu is not going to any other team in this transfer window.
I would say that he could leave for a club that he could play for instead. I mean sure there are some other clubs that he may get benched, or he could go to a team that is not good at all and he could play there, but then he will suck and play badly and be benched eventually.

But at the very least, if he leaves, he has a chance to play somewhere, can you see him playing at Real Madrid? I mean even as a bench player, I can see maybe like maximum 500 minutes total for all season. He didn't get to play a ton of games even without Mbappe, now Mbappe joins and he will not have any chance at all, I think he will be quite bad, I think that is the part that matters the most, which is why I think it needs to be something quite big.
13  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: La Liga (Spanish League) Prediction Thread 2023/24 on: June 19, 2024, 03:59:53 PM
Even though Perez had built the Los Galacticos squad, which of course required a large player budget, Perez was very astute in buying players. Of course Ancelotti also has a hand here. But as far as I know, Real Madrid rarely buys players who are overpriced and end up harming the club's finances. Some of the players they bought, if they can't become core players, are at least very good when they become supersubs. This is different from Barcelona, ​​which has made many mistakes when purchasing players in the past. The best purchase they ever made was when they made the MSN trio but after that several failed purchases left Barcelona in a financial crisis because they were in conflict with Financial Fair Play rules.
Let me put it this way, it took Real 45 million to get Vinicious, 100 million for Jude, 5 million for Valverde and raised him from Castilla to main squad, and 45 million for Rodrygo, and now free for Mbappe. So, those players all combined transfer value is 195 million, most teams at the top level spend that on yearly basis and get nothing, hell if you remove Jude, they spent 95 million on Vini, Rodrygo, Valverde and Mbappe, can you imagine that?

They are not "business savy" teams, they are just Real Madrid, and players wants to go there, and teams can't expect a ton of money, or player will leave for free. Like PSG for example, they could have sold Mbappe, they didn't, now they made zero, so teams knows this and accepts cheapest they can.

15  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Italian League Prediction Thread (Serie A) on: June 19, 2024, 01:41:33 PM
Thiago Motta knows better what the team needs because every coach wants players who suit his coaching style, but if we look at it as a whole, in the last few seasons the Juventus team has needed a capable striker, they played quite well in controlling the match but didn't have one. good target men to be able to score goals.
And the Juventus team also has to improve a lot if they want to develop next season. I think their first step in bringing in a new coach is very right. Now they also have to support Thiago Motta with enough money to bring in players who have good quality.
Yes, he must have thought about it, even since he started signing the contract as Juventus coach, he must have started thinking about the names of players who suited his coaching style and were suitable to play in a club as big as Juventus. He couldn't be careless in choosing players because for a club as big as Juventus, of course he chose players. with good quality and problems that Juventus must fix at this time by improving their less productive attack line and the coach must also be able to fix these gaps so that they can improve Juventus' performance next season.

Juventus must think about the next steps before the league starts. They must have recruited productive strikers and attacking midfielders so that next season they can compete fiercely with other strong rivals. Juventus is a big club so it cannot be left behind in the title race and cannot be outdone by other strong rivals, especially with the presence of a new coach, they have to start turning over a new leaf by developing a new strategy from the coach. I believe Thiago Motta can improve Jiventus' performance next season because I have seen his coaching development when he coached Bologna.
I am sure that he does, after all most managers do know which players would be perfect for their system when they watch a game, it is not like getting the best player means something if that player doesn't fit the system, but if you get the player that fits better, then even a worse player could do better.

I think it is quite clear that we are talking about Motta trying to get players that he could never afford before, now that he is at Juventus, that means he has bigger budget that he can use for transfers and will ask the team to get those players. He probably watched the whole world to find some great players that would be amazing for his style, and now that he has a bit of money, he is going to go chasing after those people.
16  Economy / Economics / Re: The government cares for no one but waits for you to get rich for taxes paying. on: June 19, 2024, 12:59:24 PM
I wish to remind you that complaining would depend on the country. In top countries, the tax is duly used that it makes sense to pay it as required. If youíre in a country where the tax isnít used properly maybe due to bad politicians in power then I understand your why. I think the reason why tax isnít asked from people with lower earning is because itís not so much to get from them, and yet theyíd keep struggling. As we can tell, wealthy people have more and the tax isnít a lot for them to pay.
While taxing people could be quite annoying, but yes you are right, if they are the one who also benefit or majority will benefit out from those projects made through taxes, then I donít think complaining will still be reasonable. After all, the tax they have to paid is just a small percentage out from their whole one month salary.

However, poor citizens are not required to pay tax simply because they also lack the means to pay for it. But if ever they also land stable jobs in the future, surely they wonít be exempted as well paying their taxes.
I mean they are not "forced" to because they can't, but also we need to remember that even poor citizens do pay taxes. Well maybe not pay income tax, but when you buy something as simple as bread, you are getting taxed, you can buy water, beer, cheese, whatever you are buying, it is all costing you money to pay the tax for it as well, and remember those companies who built those, also pay taxes, so they put that in the price as well, so that means you are paying that too, in order to keep those companies profitable so they can continue.

All in all, even the poorest person will pay taxes, just not income tax, otherwise they are still somewhere along the chain and will be paying taxes without a trouble, so it should not be an issue at all.

Last season, Arsenal had to play a lot of matches, which caused their performance to decline and had a negative impact on the match they faced that day. Hopefully in the coming season Arsenal can learn from previous shortcomings and become better to achieve victory in the coming season.
It means there are certain things they are getting wrong and needs to work harder to get it right because this is those mistakes made are the major reason why they are yet to lift the title. This usually happens to them towards the end of the season but i hope  they will correct their mistake this time around and become better if not nothing will change they will just keep fighting but their best result will be second place.
I do get that some people may consider the team good enough to win the title and there are some very good players don't get me wrong, and they do have a good system too so I understand why people think they are good enough.

But I believe that their squad, and I do not mean just the 11 on the field, I mean subs and even a few after that, like in case injury and booking or even fatigue, is not enough. They have some good players, and they have a good system, but they are not all around great like City. Whenever City gets a lot of games, they have a deep squad that can all play at positions, they do not have any issues. Look at United, that whole team didn't had proper backs and defenders all season long, some teams just don't have that rotation. Arsenal will have the same "last games" issues next season too, because by then players are just tired.

Van Dijk is Liverpool's main defender. Saudi League will be popular because of another top player like van Dijk. More players will join the Saudi league, as teams offer big salaries for them. Some of these players prefer to stay in Europe.
Saudi league is already popular with the number of players that joined last season so what more will a player joining will add. Van Djik is a a very talented player and also experienced and joining the league will be a massive boost to the league and the team he joins but the question is, is Liverpool ready to let Van Djik go?

They have lost Kloop already so if they lose Salah and Van Djik this season Liverpool may go back to being a normal average team in the league and challenging for the title maybe difficult.

Saudi teams are known for offering a lot of money to players and that way it will be difficult to turn down their offers especially when the player has limited time to play for.
The more the merrier, I am sure if VVD joins, then the number of Dutch people who will watch this league will go up. Remember, this topic wasn't even created before Ronaldo joined, so nobody even talked about it before him, and now we are nearing 700 pages, all within span of 1.5 seasons.

The more players that they add like that, would be better. Of course VVD isn't as nearly popular as Ronaldo, not even remotely, but at the very least he is popular a bit and getting a player like him would make them a lot more popular. This isn't just a single player thing, it is more like mindset, if they keep adding VVD type of players constantly, and have many players at that level, then there will be more people watching the league gradually.

the condition of the Belgian national team is not what was expected of them. They control more of the ball, They also have a good level of pass accuracy. But yeah they are really bad at finishing. And actually Belgium is in a group that is not that difficult. Because Belgium should be the favorite in Group E. And it would be very disappointing if Belgium failed to qualify from the group stage. Well that would be a drastic decline for the Belgian National Team.

Their next opponent is Romania. And I think it will be a much more difficult match for Belgium. Because Romania seems to have a much more reliable game. I even lost a bet because I underestimated Romania. I had high hopes for Ukraina and well the result was that Romania surprised us because it managed to beat Ukraina with a fairly big score.
To be fair, they haven't been a "team" for a while now, they keep having good players and yet when they get together those good players do not become a good team. Normally that is the case, you put bunch of good players together and you get a good team, but when chemistry fails and players do not play together well, this is the result.

It is a rare case but it has happened before, I think they are aware of the situation and there isn't really anything to do, they just need to make the team play better together but so far they have failed to do it. Maybe a manager that knows them all could be better for them but someone who knows them all at the same time is a rare thing that you can't really have that easily if you ask me.

I feel like that is something I can't really guarantee at all, I try to avoid saying stuff that has never happened. Like right now, if you ask me would you look at people differently if you had millions and millions of dollars? Then I would say of course not, but it has never happened and maybe I would change with money? I wouldn't know, it never happened. Of course sometimes you know what will happen, like if I am thrown from a flying airplane, I know I would be screaming, parachute or not Cheesy.

But, some stuff are not know and usually a little bit more detailed. I spent my whole college years saying I do not care about the diploma or the grades, because I really didn't, I went to college to learn, for business purposes, not for diploma, and it has been more than a decade since I graduated and never used my diploma for once, not even a single time. But do you know what happened when I was given that diploma? I started to cry, would haven ever guessed, some stuff are shock to you too.
I feel like you would know a bit, okay maybe you do not know the whole 100% thing, but I think you know a bit. I have always been kind to waiters and any other service worker for my entire life, just because I make some money doesn't mean that I am going to change 180 degrees, I am going to be just fine. I may get a little bit more paranoid and try to act a little differently, but not entirely and I think it will not become a problem at all, it should be something that would be easy to handle.

All in all I believe that people can change, just not that much, like you said, you didn't care about diploma and you never used it, just a small teary eye moment isn't a huge change, that type of small things could happen but not great changes.
