Manchester united are in good shape but they lack solid resuts, inconsistent results, winning Crystal Palace would be easy for them afterall they got the quality of players they need, important players have returned back to the squad. Palace was their previous opponent they thrashed in their last game. Manchester new signing, Sofyan Amrabat is an aggressive midfielder and knows his job. Erik Ten Hag knows what he lacks in his team, more reason he signed the Morocco international, I believed he will make good impression with his time.
WhY kind of the nonsense good shape when they have cut my slip. In this season in fact, Man U is not among the team I have selected to play game upon. Manchester United is very weak in this season. They lack skillful players who can score and defense the eighteen (defense) area. Crystal Palace will win them because their last performance was discouraging me to place bet on them. And I told myself not to bet on them again.  Coming back of Erik  might not help the team because only him can't do anything. And if he over stress himself, he will be weak.

For them to do well in the forth coming match, they need to know their players strength before assigning them to the field.

In the last two games Barcelona have been struggling to get to that winning ways like a comfortable winning ways.
Barcelona will be hosting Seville a stubborn side is going to be very difficult for the home team and I can't say who's going to win but as it is a draw is certain on this fixture.
Xavi needs to get his team together if they want to win this game because in their last game they played out 2-2 which would have taken them to the top if they had won and always coming from behind won't help them in this fixture if they let Seville to scored first, so I just want to see a great game tonight.
I think about Barcelona's recent problems and the game they have coming up against Sevilla. Its clear that the team is weak because they are always chasing the game. Even though Sevilla hasnt played very well lately, Barcelona cant be relaxed. I think Xavi needs to strengthen the defense to keep things from getting worse. Even though they have skilled players like Cancelo and Felix, they focus too much on attack, which leaves a huge hole in their defense that Sevilla can use to their advantage. I think the mix between attack and defense is very important for a comfortable win. Xavi needs to change his plans so that his team has a strong defense while letting the attackers do their job. If he doesnt, a draw seems likely, doesnt it?
It was when Messi was in Barcelona that the team was playing very well and since the he left the squad is balance again. Now to score is a problem for them and their midfielder is not smart enough to take ball from his opponents. But at last they scored one goal but as for me I was thinking that Barcelona will use Sevilla as work over and things are not done like that, Sevilla is also playing very well. Xavi  is trying his best for the defense but they need more skillful and smart players in the team.

Riccardo may race the next GP after the crash he got.

This week he will do hard work on the simulator and if he passes the test he will race.
Daniel Joseph Ricciardo will race the forthcoming motor GP game. After the crash, he is okay now, though the only thing that will tell us whether he will ready the next race is the test. Motor GP is a game that you have to be fitted in all areas of sport. Mostly the Cognitive and Psychomotor must be effective and active because when driving you to know what you doing so when there is crash in the GP, they are always well taken care of.
4  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Quit gamble! Easy or Hard? Let's talk. on: September 29, 2023, 08:14:40 PM
The difficulty of quitting is only on your mind. If all you think is about gambling and nothing more, it will really be hard to quit. If you focus on some other thing and take a long break from gambling, this will be an easy thing to do. A habit can be easily changed if you really want to. It's all on the person if he really pursues quitting or really wants to continue.
You are right, what makes it very difficult for us to stop any activity is that we think too much about how we can stop that activity so we never do it. I think to change bad habits that exist in us requires a hard struggle to really get rid of them and if there is support from people around us I think it will be better, there are a lot of processes they have to go through until they can really get rid of them.
But if the person is not an addicted gambler then it will be very easy for him to quit gambling but whereby the person is a chronic gambler that is gambling misappropriation or disorder gambler then it will be very difficult for the person to leave or quit gambling because at that the spirit is very high and and it has entered his bones and brain.

Yes when you have taken that thing as part of your life activities then to leave it is not easy again. And what I think that can make rid of addicted gambler is lack of money. When there is no more to gamble for about months then the gambling spirit will go down gradually.
5  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Never gamble in front of your kids. on: September 29, 2023, 03:25:42 PM
Kids are fast learner and literally trying to copy the same thing what they see from another. So it may be a smart decision to get them out of this gambling. Although i don't see any high risk activity here cause kids are normally fond of games. They don't know whatever you are doing, that is normal game or gambling. They just find it entertaining and agree to do so for having fun. Thats it. But it would a matter if kids are aged enough. That's why i agree with op, to avoid false perception on them, we need to make positive environment for their grow up
Exactly, children see gambling as entertainment games and not the other way round. So even you gambling in  front of them they see it as nothing. And I don't think gambling in front of children will spoil their future. Gambling is not a video game so it will not attract children to it. And those children that played gamble is not because their father play gamble but they were influenced from out. though it is good to avoid coming close to you when you are on it because it will become and reference point for them to play gamble.

Children will know what their father father really does if the father explain to them.

Exactly mostly in telegram, all those scammers e don scam people weti no good on telegram. There was a time I most fall for one guy but I was smart enough to detect the guy and immediately I noted that im na fraudulent person na so im blocked me and run away. And one thing bi sae, when something become new to the world, no be everybodi go dey like Sharp Sharp, few people go like am and plenty people go dislike am but at time goes, the people wey go like go dey increase gradually.

And another thing na by choice and also the orientation given to the public about the project also means a lot to him. Bitcoin at the beginning was not bearing good name and di boys wey been dey use am e no come tell the public the truth, dem self dey hide dey use so make people come dey say the thing as bad something.
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bad Experience in Bitcoin Peer-to-Peer in CEX. on: September 28, 2023, 01:09:36 PM
If you want to get some more specific opinions about Bitcoin transactions, you would have to provide more information. For example, which exchanges are involved, and which type of trade, do you have limits on your account? What kind of orders did you place so they were rejected? Rejected or something else, How much fee did you put, and how much was in the mempool at that moment...
There are many questions, and we know that you bought shoes and which company tried to deliver them to you.
The exchange is Binance, and it was selling and buying kind of trade, I don't have any limit in my account, in Binance p2p is free and there was no fee in it. Your questions are not related to the Op. It was simple analogy, I ordered a deal when the price was some how high, and immediately I ordered the deal and I was waiting for the buyer to buy but the buyer cancelled the order because the price of bitcoin came down (reduced), I ordered again and it was the same and the last was cancelled itself after the time has elapsed.

I appreciate all the comments, there are lot to learn and asked even on bitcoin, well to some extent the cancellation by buyers is not too bad because it is a business, and they need profit, one of them even ask me to reduce the price for him to pay me but I also refused. And the other hand, bitcoin is meant to buy things online and it mainly for p2p, and in such situation when you are in the malling shop and you want to use bitcoin to pay for the service, as some early bitcoiners did to buy coffee, and the process delay what will you do. Let us see meaning to this post and not only on the other way around. There are morale lessons in the thread. As other said, don't believe Centralized exchange and prepare yourself always for the unseen disappointments.
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bad Experience in Bitcoin Peer-to-Peer in CEX. on: September 27, 2023, 09:47:33 PM
The experience I had today was not encouraging. And I felt bad in the logistic office. They were looking at me at if I was not serious.
I ordered a pair of shoe online days backed and today the shipping company called to their office to picked up the goods which costed me $40 and immediately I received the called from the company (GIG Logistic Delivery Company), I tried to sell bitcoin so I can pay the goods and claimed them. And the time when I made the order to sell bitcoin was are the rate of $26,800 and immediately I made the other the price came down and the buyer cancelled the order and still looked for another buyer to buy the coins so I could buy the carrier agent, the second buyer the same thing, the third buyer the same thing and I still tried again the same thing and that was when I told the Logistic Company Staff that, the bitcoins I was selling to pay the goods were rejected so I will come back the next day and they accepted so I left the place.

Since When I left the place, I was thinking how Centralized Exchange can disappoint your urgent need of cash. I was not really expecting them to treat me like that. I have not experienced such in the p2p system. Really I was ashame in the place base on the kind of personality I am. I was embarrassed and left the goods behind. I was also thinking what really caused the rejections, was it because the price coming down that if they buy at that time, they will loss?  or they don't buy when the price is going down? What do you think really happened?
9  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin - what are we expecting for the rest of 2023? on: September 27, 2023, 08:32:35 PM
We are in the third quarter of the year and the year is far spent to the ending. And the price of bitcoin is still low to some extend. Though there is an indication that the price will go up from any moment from now. The price was $26,800 today and suddenly came back again. And my expectation of bitcoin price before the end of this year and early next year is $40k this year and $45k early next year. 

If the price of bitcoin climbed to $45k early next year then there is a possibility that the price will reach $55k to $60k early 2024.
10  Economy / Gambling / Re: | Reviews & Listings - A more honest approach on: September 27, 2023, 07:55:46 PM

I look forward to receive your feedback & suggestions of what could be improved/added.

I can see your review on the site and the way I see how you did is not encouraging. The way you review the sites is too shallow and that can not be used to know if the casino is good or not. You only list their service which we also know. At least indept review would have helped your site and also the casinos under review. As it is, frankly speaking, I have not seen review in your platform. Or we have to review your site first before your review others  Grin. When gamblingbro came to the forum and introduced themselves to be casino reviewing site and when we visit the site the reviewed they showcase at that time was impressive.

But that is not withstanding, there are plenty things to work on the site if you really want to review casinos unbias. Add more information on the review casinos, and remove your personal interest like not monetized and others.

Streaming it live it's my problem only if they can be showing it on our local television stations like they should be consistent even on Gotv, Startimes and DStv. Not after week 1 or 2 they'll stop and we have to hear it from the news or something.
The App should have been free till the end of the season, because this is one part of promoting our league and we all know they (NFF) haven't been doing well in the past so they can use this season to redeem themselves.

We have to be realistic in our demands haha. Even in ENGLAND; The English premier league is not broadcast for free in their television stations; you need to subscribe to ESPN, Skysports separately for a champions league and EPL Coverage. We cannot continue to demand subsidy in our sports and hope that they become better.

This season the NPFL has taken the right step in the right direction, securing live streaming broadcast rights with MTN & Propel; and presently they are negotiating with Supersports and Startimes for a 5 year broadcast deal that will ensure television coverage.

If the app is free usage until the end of the season; how would partners earn? how would advertisement be achieved? Its a fair deal from all parties.
Its time to embrace our own too.

The annoying aspect of it all is that the money is there to use in running these promotions but embezzlement won't let them do the needful to make the NPFL stand out among major leagues in Africa. What stops them from streaming it live on at least in the national TV station like NTA sports station to use it in creating awareness and capturing the interest of Nigerians to beam towards the league. If not that I gambling most of times I wouldn't know when these matches are scheduled, it's only when I get to the gambling shop that I have to see the fixtures being pasted on their board and that's very bad for a league like this.

I think this is faux outrage; no where in the world can your stream league games live (except illegal streaming platforms); no where are games shown live on televisions too; you need to pay special subscription fee always.

What can the NPFL DO? Since most clubsides are state owned in the country; they can secure a broadcast deal to ensure that every home game matchday is broadcast live; for example, Shooting Stars home game live on Bcos, Bendel Insurance games live on Edo television (to achieve this, clubsides need to source for worthy partnerships amongst others).
Then Nigerian should a sport station which they can use to broadcast their sport activities without begging for a television station to broadcast it for them. Nigeria has the resources to make her sport festival great but the management of NPFL is highly corrupted that everything is woe. Even the selection of players from the local team level to the national team is from favourism, man know man. The broadcasting of the league should be done on TV and Radio but it is only Radio news we heard about this events.

NPFL can make the local league to the standard one but their siphoning the money to do another things so dem no fit use am do.
13  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Crypto betting on: September 26, 2023, 08:37:49 PM
Sure thing! Casinos should be watched closely by the government to make sure everyone gets a fair shot. When they're regulated well, it means the games are played honestly, with no cheating. This helps protect people who like to gamble and keeps the games fair.

Mostly people get scammed in casinos. we know the reputable casinos because we are here on this forum but new people who came into gambling by watching a instagram ad go and make account on a new casino(mostly we see ads of new casinos) because they get attracted to the bonus they advertise.

If government will be sincerely do that then the world will be a good place to live in but they will not because corrupt agencies. At that point KYC will be guarantee and you can't do without gambling and every games will fair to all gamblers. Government might decide to do the right thing but the agencies that sent by the government might do the opposite. But you have know that it is not only casinos that cheat but gamblers also cheat.

Really government itself has a lot work to do, if there was a monitoring team from the government, the scamming rate from casinos would have reduced, But government come to check when there is a report against the casino that is not fair with it customers.
14  Economy / Economics / Re: Which problem will you choose to solve? on: September 26, 2023, 08:07:50 PM
Solving the problem of one rich person can save thousands of jobs so it depends on who is that rich person and what is their problem.

If you see more replies that say to solve the problems of more poor people then its not a wonder because that is the right thing from an ethical Point of View.

You have made your point or view from the first sentence so there is no need to supporting the poor again. But as for me, I will solve the problems of the poor. Because if I solve the problems of the poor I will have freedom to move and the request from them will reduce, but if I solve the already rich people problem then I have not solve any problem in the world. I am in this world to solve the problem of the poor and not the rich. The rich have money to solve their problem so if I have money to solve problem, it is the poor.

According to a philosopher, Machiavelli, a leader that support and solve the problems of the poor is the true leader and not the one who support the oppressive Oligarchy. The leader that support the poor will have the freedom to do things than the leader that support the rich.

Economic Meltdown affect businesses, human live, and corporations because at that economic downturn period, people are not doing business so everything is just stagnant. livelihood very costly. And this is what happened in the year 2020 because there was restriction of human movement across the world so businesses were stopped. And with that bitcoin was affect badly, and the price was down. It was after when the curfew was lifted in the world from the Covid 19 pandemic of 2020 that businesses returned to normalcy and bitcoin also bounced back in 2021.

World economic recession affect all sphere of the economic activities in the world. There is no two ways about it whenever there is crisis, bitcoin surge in the bad economy.

Retiring at the age of 50 or 55 is not too good because at that time the person is still strong to carry out activities. Though every country has their service years and age to be retiring workers. My country if you work in the Civil Service for 60 year of age as of the person age, then the person will be retired from active service but if the person service is still needed then, the institution would still hire him to carry out some specific service until the person himself says, he could not again then he would remove from the institution and replaced by another person.
18  Economy / Economics / Re: How do you deal with financial stress? on: September 25, 2023, 07:31:51 PM
Op I don't think it was the Covid 19 that caused the cost of living and the inflation in the world but it is the government policies that are causing all these things cost. Because of government policies, many businesses have fold up and Small Enterprises have reduced very well in the retail world of business. in 2019 I was renting an apartment with $60 in the university town but today that the same apartment that I was renting with that amount is now $300 - $400, and I was amazed when I went to the university town to looked for an apartment for my younger brother to start school.

Another thing I will like to talk about is the going out to look for Greener Pasture out the the country, though it has helped many youths to make in life but not all have that favour. Personally I don't advise people to go out most in this period where everything is skyrocketing in price. The governments are not planning good for the people and that is why everything is getting worst every year.
19  Local / Nigeria (Naija) / Re: [Edu] how to secure profit while trading on: September 25, 2023, 05:59:16 PM
Op the repetitions in the thread are too much and dis make the thread like children play. in trading, setting Stop Loss and Take Profit does not really work, though it works with small amount but when you trade with big amount then you will confirm that, that nonsense thing e no dey work. I used #300k to trave with Deriv which was recommended by me from a friend. And before I start the trading, I set everything both SL  and TP and when I started, everything was moving fine. I even got a profit of 15$ but the horizontal line had not reached the Take profit and before I knew, the line just shot up with the highest speedometer and pernitrate and pass the Take Profit line with a very big margin and all my money got lost.

So since that day I no gree use Deriv again and the way I see am no be only deriv app dey don dat kind thing but all the trading platforms dey do am.

Op I no go lie for you, dis one na one of the threads wey I like well well for dis month, because na di truth u just knack. Goodluck was the last president we really enjoy for this country.

If Tinubu for do something for im 100 days in office, we for know sae im go do becuse im work for speak for im. But within di 100 days in office we see and experience di real hell in our lives.

And dis country na one the countries dat have abundant resource raw materials but the corrupt level of the leadership e no fit utilized di resources well.

And weti you to sef e no too bad, wey you say make we dey help others or reason dem if we have becos of di way di country be now. Really e no dey easy to survive in the country as e bi.
