As long as Real Madrid does not wish to spend too much money on Haaland or Mbappe, then they can always choose to go for Harry Kane or Osimhen instead. In terms of the cost of these four players, Harry Kane is going to be the least expensive. Harry Kane is going to be the best value for money when it comes to this purchase.

However, if they are looking to invest in the future, I would say that mbappe or Haaland are the most appropriate options for them to consider. There is no way I can understand how Lukaku is even a part of the discussion at the moment. Unless they have a specific plan, I don't think they should get him.
If a list of top ten strikers in the world is published right now, I am not sure that Lukaku's name will make the list. If Mbappe and Haalaand are impossible to get, they should really consider Harry kane more than any other option. Harry kane has one advantage over Osimhen which is injury proneness. Osimhen is very prone to injuries and can go games without playing because of injury. If he gets injured for Real Madrid in an important competition that they need him, it can get really bad for Real Madrid.

While there is many talk about Osimhen and the club going to sign him, I still await the club that will show interest in getting the other star player in Napoli Khvicha Kvaratskhelia who has also had a great season.
2  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Top 3 Reasons Why Cytpocurrency Gambling is more Addictive than Fiat Gambling! on: Today at 07:25:04 PM
Do you guys think my assessment is to the point or do you think there are more reasons related to cryptocurrency gambling addiction? Please go ahead and reply to this thread. If you have a valid point that I think is related to this thread then I would add it to this topic.
The newer something is, the more interesting it becomes, because it is always an upgrade. Think about this, the potential to get you more addicted is in a progressive stage from fiat gambling in physical gambling houses and casino's, to online gambling with fiat, then to online gambling with cryptocurrency. If there comes another innovation to overtake cryptocurrency, and it can be used for gambling, it will have the potential to be more addictive.

Manchester United 0 -1 Fulham and the match and far spend.
Three successive red cards for Willian for stopping the ball from Sancho that was going into the goal and Mitrovic for confrontation on the referee and the Fulham coach. Bruno Fernandez scores from a penalty kick and then few minutes later Manchester United (Sabitzer) scores again from a good assist from Luke Shaw.

Things turned around really quick for Fulham, Mitrovic should never have confronted the referee, he ruined any chance that Fulham would have had of trying to find balance.

These Red cards will affect them in the premier league as it is a domestic competition.

In the Arsenal vs Crystal Palace match, Bukayo Saka was the star of the win through his two goals in the 43rd and 74th minutes, as well as Gabriel Martinelli in the 28th minute and Granit Xhaka in the 55th minute. Arsenal played very well and it was beautiful to watch, especially the short passing and also the dominating game.
Saka played well, but the star performance for me in that wing was Ben White. Ben White was really in this game, his influence down that side made things easier for Saka. Martinelli was good, even scored a goal but Trossard was more effective from his wing, it was just a pity to see him removed and substituted before he could score a goal for himself. I was happy to see Jesus play and although he is struggling with fitness, I am sure he come around with a few more games.

For Holding who started in place of Saliba due to his injury, he has improve with his concentration because he looked to have switched off many times in the defense and if not for Gabriel, that CB position would have been an easy pass for crystal palace.

My point is that Normal people see only their Success but they do not know that How much dark secrets are behind this.
Mostly people care that you are successful, but do not care how you became successful.

I agree that successful businesses have secrets, but not all the secrets are dark secrets like you are suggesting. There are trade secrets and strategies that businesses have discovered over the years from their experience in the trade, these trade secrets and strategies give them an edge over all other business in that line that maybe just started or have been operational since.

what do you call BITCOIN?
Bitcoin is the future, the future of money. Whatever perception you have about bitcoin is due to the use case that you engage in. If bitcoin provides you an opportunity to invest, bitcoin will be viewed by you as an investment opportunity but it does not still change the original purpose which it was created for which is;
to be a payment option...

You can invest in bitcoins now because of the volatility that has created room to make profit from buying bitcoins, but if that is the only perception you have about it, When in the future bitcoin prices are no longer as volatile as they use to be, you may become discouraged holding bitcoins in general because what you know it for is no longer as it used to be.

As you invest in bitcoins, still try to engage other uses and functions. To achieve Satoshi's dream and prove that his innovation is successful, use bitcoins also for some transactions when you can.

Had Leon Edwards to win but it was too close to call especially with all the fouls/glove&cage grabbing/point deduction against him. Rocky managed to do it in that champion style he is now a legend for in his home of England.
Leon was confident that he was going to be able to defeat Usman again and he did it even if it was by majority decision and not KO as before. I think he has become used to fighting Usman and then not as much fear as he did the first time they fought were Usman dominated three rounds and would have won by decision had Leon not pulled the Magic kick that Knocked him out. Leon's win settles any doubts that he won the first fight by luck, he deserve the Welterweight title.

For Usman, It is going to be another difficult time for him, he really thought he will be able to reclaim his title, a title held for a long time by him. He worked hard for this fight and prevented Leon any chance to knock him out again. It was a close fight and he could have won. Kamaru Usman after the fight said he was not done and was going to get back up, I will be looking to see maybe he will want to fight Leon again.

Very entertaining and competitive fight from both fighters, Good to watch.

I have seen so many trading on bitcoin and making good earnings in return .
From the outside it looks really glamourous, but only when you begin do you realize that it is not as easy and straightforward as it looks from the outside.

Do you have to buy the coins leave it in your wallet for a while for it to add value or do you need to trade it I really wants to understand the transaction and investment in bitcoin because to me I have tried to invest in it but Iím not seeing any added value to my coin bought .
You do not have to just buy once and then feel like it will be enough to yield good profit unless it is a really big amount. If investment in bitcoin is not a huge amount that with every market movement you make good profit or huge loss, you will need to keep increasing the amount of bitcoin you own by buying regularly as you can to increase your chances of a good market gain when the value of bitcoin rises.

    Can some one invest $100 to start or do you need more fund than this to start up any crypto investment ,
This is enough to start with, but not enough to be okay about. Invest more if you can but not more than you afford to loose.

Yes, Chelsea seems to be winning this fight. But unfortunately they did not manage to score in the first half. I agree that overall Chelsea's performance was much better, but they were not lucky in the first half. Now that the second half starts, I think 2-0 is possible for this match.
Chelsea were very good in the first half and in this second half Haverts had a very good attempt on goal and best save from Pickford. Chelsea has controlled the game to the front the start of the Halftime to the 52nd minutes where Felix took good advantage of the defensive error from the Everton defender.

Everton's story become more worse as their fight not to get relegated becomes more difficult. The game is far from over but with the way Chelsea side are looking, it will be difficult to get three points.

This Chelsea side is looking more lively, if they can play and improve on this their performance into the Champions League, Real Madrid will have a problem.

So far the player that is still underperformance is Mudryk. I can only hope Mudryk will find his best performance as soon as possible.
I do not know if Mudryk is finding it hard to settle in Chelsea because the team before he joined were not balanced and so he has been affected, Or because the competition to play in Chelsea is high with them still having many players who can play his role. I know it is too late to be whining but I feel that if he had come to Arsenal instead, he would have had many goals already to his name and a great start to his English premiership career because of the influence from the other Arsenal players who are enjoying the season. There is hope for him though.

Multi ownership was frowned against formerly by UEFA. But with them now looking like multi-club owning rules will be reviewed to make it possible, Todd Boehly of Chelsea will make moves to take over ownership by purchasing a high stake in RC Strasbourg Alsace, a team in the Ligue 1. He was also interested in buying Lyon at some point.

What do think of this move by the Chelsea boss? Is Strasbourg about to become a dumping place for Chelsea players to go on loan?

where should i start? really starting from zero.
Learning is a gradual and sometime tedious process. But it is an important stage that requires patience, discipline, dedication and commitment. How you learn about bitcoins becomes your foundation and it matters. You will learn better about something when you have the interest to help you keep learning even at stages where it seems like understanding is now a problem. You already have interest in learning about bitcoin, and that is key.

Everyone with knowledge about bitcoins got it by acquisition, they did not know about bitcoins automatically, but they heard about bitcoins and devoted their time and self to learning about it just like you are about to begin.

Do not assume you know anything, learn and read about bitcoins from the basics before you slowly advance into more advanced knowledge.

The fact that you have also become a user in this forum, consistently reading, researching and engaging meaningfully in discussions concerning bitcoins will help you become sharper in knowledge. You also now have the benefit of having a community to bring questions and concerns to, many people did not have that at the early stages of them learning about bitcoins, so that's also a good advantage you have.

So I decided to ponder on this myself and also to  bring same to the forum for forum users to share their thoughts on this, as a bitcoiner, a bitcoin trader or investor how do you maintain your bitcoin life in the view of public eyes?
I know about bitcoins just as many other people in our society. If I know about bitcoin, it does not mean that my life is suddenly at risk because of this knowledge. Bitcoin is not a top secret program and knowing about bitcoin does not mean that I have plenty bitcoins in my keep or that I am super rich. Someone can know so much about bitcoins and still be living close to the poverty line. Unless one begins to live in a manner that is loud and to show off, only then can one's life be in danger.

In the view of the public eyes I always like to appear like I do not know so much, even though I have an idea of whatever is being discussed.
13  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Will this Statement alone be enough to Prove my Gambling Loses for Tax Deduction on: March 17, 2023, 10:11:57 PM
I have been gambling exclusively at online casinos which have incorporated account statement and tracking databases for gamblers. If needed, I can request for my yearly statement, which shows how much bet I have placed in that year, the wins, and losses for the year. For experienced people, will this statement alone be enough to prove my gambling loses for tax deduction purposes?
I believe that the account statement and other related documents that can be provided on demand by the online casino to their users have relevance for this sort of situations, it will be one of the reasons why these records are kept.

In terms of if it will be enough to prove gambling loses for tax deduction depends on the country and the officials who are in charge of making the decision.

 If it is a country that regards and recognises online gambling and the casino you play with, the document will have relevance. If the officials are genuine also, they will not want you paying extra tax when you clearly have encountered losses from what the documents you have presented provided they are legit.
14  Economy / Economics / Re: Do you think Bitcoin can end poverty? In a nation today on: March 17, 2023, 09:27:27 PM
Ö Bitcoin has helps the poor by Increasing their savings and access to capital...
Do poor people need to save? I think they need to find a way to get more money first, be comfortable and then invest and save. You do not get rich by saving alone, people should understand this. Bitcoin cannot end poverty, it can reduce the number of people and prevent some people from fallen back under the poverty line. If a poor person thinks that his small investment in bitcoin is enough to turn his fortune, he is only living in fantasy.

Bitcoin alone cannot end poverty. There are many causes and factors that result in poverty, and until those factors are addressed, poverty will continue to exist.

According a publication I just read because of curiosity to know the many causes of poverty, there are nine major causes of global poverty:
Quote
- INADEQUATE ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER AND NUTRITIOUS FOOD.
- LITTLE OR NO ACCESS TO LIVELIHOODS OR JOBS.
- CONFLICT.
- INEQUALITY.
- POOR EDUCATION.
- CLIMATE CHANGE.
- LACK OF INFRASTRUCTURE.
- LIMITED CAPACITY OF THE GOVERNMENT.
- LACK OF RESERVES.

I found some of these causes interesting and difficult to believe until I read in details. If it interests you, you can read in the details the nine major causes of poverty HERE.



15  Economy / Economics / Re: Has anyone felt lost in pursuit of financial freedom ? on: March 17, 2023, 01:27:50 PM
Financial freedom is a dream and you need to stop yourself for a period of two to 5 years to achieve that dream. You must reduce relationships...
There is no fixed rule or path to achieve financial freedom. It is a journey that everyone has to find their way to getting there. There are principles to help achieve this freedom of which discipline is one, and then selective relationship.

Selective relationship means you should be careful and carefully pick the people you decide to be friends with. Some relationship can "make you", and other relationships "break you", as an individual in the quest for financial freedom, you should be able to identify these relationships so you know the one to keep and the one to run from.

Avoid people that do not add any form of benefit to your life and have only been in your life to take from you. Build more gainful relationships that have potential to be beneficial, relate more with people who are dedicated to financial freedom and not people who have given up. You can get financial freedom from an information given to you, hence you need gainful relationship.

But actually  ,investing and pursuing financial objectives is pretty damn boring.
You buy the same stocks every month.  The same bonds every month. The same bitcoin every month and so on.

You accumulate every month.
Some people derive joy in consistency, they find the consistent behaviour of accumulating fun in itself, the find pleasure in navigating all the obstacles that want to hinder them from committing to their investing. People are built differently

Unfortunately this season is about to become worse for Chelsea as they will end it without any title even with the very large amount of money they have spent and invested in the club. Chelsea with just the players have a chance considering that they have almost the same quality with the players in Real Madrid, but from coach and tactics angle, Graham Potter is completely inexperienced to face a club with the status of Real Madrid and that will be the problem. Real Madrid have already sent home one English team, another one in blue is about to follow.

This is a tough game to predict, both teams are good and have experience in the champions league, just as the coaches. This game will be down to strategy, team selection and tactics.

AC Milan have struggled so far this season, even in the Champions league, unlike Napoli. With how in-form the Napoli players are, AC Milan will have a tough time. They will have to find a way to manage Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, Victor Osimhen and Hirving Lozano who have been sharing the goals and assist.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Unit Bias on: March 17, 2023, 10:14:42 AM
A colleague who has been not a bitcoin fan for as long as I have known him finally told me his reason why he would never buy bitcoin.  Simple, he thinks he missed the bitcoin train because he is or was unable to own 1 bitcoin when it was less than $5k. For him, bitcoin is just too expensive to buy at $20k plus. This is a type of cognitive bias known unit bias.
Most people who own assets did not make full payment at a go to get those assets. They negotiated a comfortable payment plan that they could stay committed to until they are able to pay completely. Bitcoin can be considered an asset, and just like negotiating a comfortable payment plan for other assets that you intend to buy, you can plane to buy bitcoins in small quantity until it gets to the target amount.

The strategy to engage is the DCA strategy which many people have committed to. Via this strategy and discipline, people who never thought they could own a reasonable amount of bitcoins now have substantial amounts.

It is one thing you feel you missed something and then another thing not to try to catch up because you feel that you have been left out. The longer the delay in buying, the more difficult it becomes to commit to buying.
18  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: UEFA Europa League 2022/23 Season on: March 16, 2023, 11:04:51 PM
Arsenal against Porto is definitely worth watching although admittedly they must now accept the fact that they have to be knocked out in the last 16 now.
Penalties are clearly a matter of mentality and in this match Gabriel Martineli failed to carry out his role which knocked Arsenal out.
Even so, it can't be blamed either because it's also very difficult for the task of kicking.
The bright side is that they can focus more in the EPL now.
The game was tense, the hero of the game for Sporting is their Goalkeeper who made many important saves. Biggest blow is that we had two important players injured (Tomiyasu & Saliba) and still did not win this game even with the home advantage. Manchester United supporters are the happiest knowing that one team that can challenge them for the Europa cup has been knocked out. The EPL is what we cannot miss now, We have to focus all Attention now to ensure that Manchester city or even Manchester United don't steal that away from us too, that will be very embarrassing.

Manchester United though it looks like an easy ride for them now to the finals, they still have to be very careful with some teams that are underrated in this competition and even this Sporting boys.

I don't know if Arteta's decision not to start our regular strong first eleven players is due to team rotation or because he underestimated the boys from Sporting . For whatever reason, it looks like what cost us the game.

If Edwards still can get up over and over as he did in the last fight, the result may still be the same. Usman will be frustrated and gas out which is what the opportunity that Edwards looks for.
Edward will be confident entering this fight knowing he was the one who Knocked out Usman in their last encounter and it has not been so long ago. Edward believes that since their last fight has not been that long, that there will be nothing new to Usman's fighting style, he may be right and at the same time wrong too. Usman will not want to make the same mistakes that he made during their first fight where he allowed Edward to attack him with a kick to his head and neck, he has had a taste of what is possible if Edward is given the chance to, so he will be better prepared for this fight.

For Leon Edwards, it will be his biggest mistake to expect this fight to be the same as before. He has hinted about the advantage the home crowd will give him, but that may not just be enough. It is a chance for Usman to get his revenge on Edward, he will be prepared to take it.

Personally I want Usman to win, he is not used to defeats after not loosing for a very long time, if he looses again to the same person that ended his winning streak, it may be difficult for him to bounce back and return to the Nightmare that we know.

I hope things go well like they hope, but this is a very big concern for me, because if anything happens, he will be left alone to pay back the loan, this can be life threatening because he is old and the loan amount is a lot, or do you have any better idea about this? What would you have done if you are in my shoes?
Your uncle made his decision on his own, the consequences of his actions will also be his to bear. Your uncle made the mistake of trusting easily, it may turn out to be something, a decision that he will regret. I have heard stories of people who send money to other countries for family members and so called close friends to secure assets for them in the form of property, only for them to travel there and find out that the person had done nothing. I know that that is a different scenerio, but it is also possible to happen.

If it is possible to get the person given the money to return it, you can try to convince your uncle to get his money back and avoid debt.
