In the Eintracht Frankfurt - Bayern Munich match I expected more emotions. Bayern, however, very quickly dominated the rival and left no illusions about the result. Eintracht players must quickly forget about this match, because in a few days they will face Real Madrid for the European Super Cup. If they present themselves like yesterday, the match may end with a similar result.
Nothing Frankfurt gona do to Real Madrid in the super cup. They will have to lose the cup because they were not even the favourite to win the Europa League, they were so lucky from the group stage to the final.  Bayern now demoralise them and they will be weak against RM. Real don't know how to lose finals.

Southampton is in the match going on leading Tottenham in early time. Tottenham who has started their match without their new signing Richarlison. Richarlison was suspended because of the smoke bomb he threw when he was in Everton. This match is looking like a match the will bring many goals. Let us be watching

Opening match for Bundesliga between Bayern Munich vs Frankfurt and surprisingly during last season Frankfurt can beat Bayern several times even from 3 recent matches from their head to head records Frankfurt can beat Bayern twice and only lose once so i think it proven Frankfurt is not so weak even hard to defeated by Bayern but indeed the favourite is Bayern especially they had managed to get quality new players such as Mane and De Ligt and on my prediction Bayern still have good chance to win the match but with slim scores because Frankfurt defense also quite strong
Bundesliga Champion vs Europa League Champion Cheesy
It's quite interesting to watch, but even so it's clear that we know that Bayern are much more prepared now and this is a start they have to win.
On the other hand Frankfurt have to make a pretty good defense like last season because if it's not like that then defeat is a sure thing for them.
One thing I learn about Frankfurt is that I learn  not to under rate them again. During last season Europa League I was underating them from group match to round 16 to round 8 even till they beat Barcelona and Westham. Those boys know very well how to defend ball. Bayern Munich should be careful with them because they can come up with big surprise for them.

I can't wait for the league to start tonight. It should be a good opening game - and I'm curious to see how the Arsenal team will perform after doing well in pre-season.

I will be betting on Palace to win - I think the start of the season is the best time to catch favorites off their guard and Palace is a decent team that will cause them problems.
You praised Arsenal's game in pre-season but made a bet on the other side Cheesy
It's okay, but it's too risky. We know how Arsenal played in pre-season and this is definitely one thing Crystal Palace have to watch out for.
Arsenal are currently with high confidence and indeed it is a good thing for them to be able to make a good start in the opening match of the EPL.
Betting that Crystal Palace will win Arsenal is a high risk. Arsenal did very well in the pre season and every big team will like to win their first match. Don't forget that Crystal Palace is one reason Arsenal did not go to champions league. I feel like Arsenal will coke for revenge this first match.

Real Madrid has kept their squad unchanged even though all the teams have tried to improve their strength. Because they played very well last season. They won two important titles, Premier League and La Liga. So the management of Real Madrid wants to rely on the same squad again. But if Benzema can't perform well. Then maybe we won't see a good performance from Real Madrid. Last season we saw that Real Madrid's entire gameplay depended on Benzema's performance.
Madrid are very passive for the transfer of players this time but it is not a problem for them especially with the squad they have in fact they are still quite able to compete.
At the moment the back line is fully charged with the arrival of Rudiger and maybe for this season we will see some young players show their skills in midfield because their main focus now apart from winning is they must also be able to regenerate the midfield.
I really hope real Madrid will make their midfield strong this, without waiting to promote junior players, I was thinking real Madrid will sign one or two midfielders to help their 3 man old bur strong midfield. The three man which is Modrik, Kruze and Casimero have been loyal for the club and they have gotten much results for themself.

I think we just need that striker now and everything is set for the season. It definitely not going to be an easy one but won't be disappointing as well. We're lifting a trophy as always this season.
A trophy will not come easy for Chelsea this season, this season is looking very unpredictable at the moment and like an open competition to all the teams that finished top five last season including MUFC. There are rumours that Chelsea are interested in signing Jamie Vardy from Leicester as a short term option to solve their need for a proven goal scorer this season, but I'm concerned about how effective he will be if the move turns out successful considering Vardy and Injuries have been five and six lately.

Chelsea is not having so much trouble in the team. They have good team before this time for new season. The big problem they have is the scoring man. If they have a good striker they will do well. Remember they have sterling who is a good player and they did not lose many players apart from defenders. If Verdy agree to go Chelsea, he will help you club and he will score good goals.

now it's official and west ham united signs italian international striker Gianluca Scamacca. the player, who comes from sassuolo calcio, signs a contract with the hammers until summer 2027. the transfer fee including bonuses amounts to more than Ä40 million. last season GS scored 16 goals for the italian serie a club
Welcome to English premier league Gianluca Scamacca to come showcase your skills of scoring goals having scored 16 goals for the Italian side sassuolo Scamacca last season was a stellar performance and I do hope he meet up with the demands of the job as West Ham United is doing all necessary efforts to equally stay top on the race to becoming the next English champions. There performance last season was fantastic adding more quality players like Gianluca to the team could make them go more far season this season.

Westham really had good season last season and they played nice football from the beginning of the season to the end. It was unfortunate that they didn't lift the europa Cup and they didn't also qualify for next europa. Their major problem at the middle and towards the end of the season was that they do not have team depth and they had many matches to play. They were depending on Antonio and Bowen to do the work. This signing is good for them.

I see that most forum members are worried about privacy issues behind this decision. Although in many countries you need to add your many detailed information to online gambling websites to start gambling. It is government forced situation to companies and people are used to it. I am not very sure with USA or Canada or UK but this was like a norm. I think its something understandable, and not very bad thing.
Since Satoshi  created bitcoin and this forum, majority of the members of this forum have much interest in privacy. Satoshi make us to understand why privacy is important especially when you don't trust your government.
Apart from people that knows about bitcoin and privacy, you can easily see people giving out their personal information for any casino or online based platform. Even if you are not a bad person you still need to protect your online identity.

This can be true if the person doesn't have  internet acess, it is hard for a gamble addict to stop no matter the change of environment since gambling is part of him. You gamble most times when less busy so only self discipline can play a major role on gambling.
That is true, it seems that we have forgotten the place of self discipline in this topic of gambling. Change of environment might work for some people who are not fully adults but might not work for fully adults. But self discipline is the important and the working method to overcome gambling addiction in adults.

Newcastle are going after a really good player like Draxler indeed. This is one of their best targets in their transfer list I think. Draxler didn't find many chances at PSG in the previous season. This can be really a big opportunity for Newcastle to sign him. His current market price is not that high as well (18 million euros). Newcastle don't have any problem with money of course but this would still be a very favorable deal for them. I would like to see this kind of good players coming more to Newcastle.

Draxler has been a good player before now, in psg I have enjoyed watching him before his time passed in the club. The price is fair and also looking at his age, not too young, not too old. His contract with psg might have been close to end. Newcastle should go for the player and get him. They have more chances now that psg left him out of their pre season tour. With the presence of his kind of player in Newcastle, other good players will like to go Newcastle.

The most important thing is to have an investment first, and if you have, in times of uncertainty, your investment is your sage haven. I always tell people that the essence of investments, business, works is to earn a living, live comfortably for the time being that you exist. One cannot be struggling to eat and at the same time want to buy a house. It is fine that during time of uncertainty, you take care of yourself and family with your investment.

Often we get to see such news and these incidents of celcius, Luna are part of the market. It is our own understanding whether to take into consideration and end our participation into the market or just develop trust over the bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies that are good. It doesn't make sense to think of bitcoin towards the end. Always we can see the market experience such moves, but it should strengthen us and not develop negative thoughts over bitcoin.

I still do not understand how and why people think that bitcoin can end unexpectedly because of the price going downward. I don't understand how they think that I will sell my bitcoin, you will sell your bitcoin and everyone that has adopted bitcoin will sell theirs and then the whales sell off too and then crash bitcoin price to $0. How possible is that?
As you are selling your bitcoin, I am buying it, as I am selling mine the whales are buying it. That is how the circle continues.

Betplay.io is a revolutionary casino platform where a user will be satisfied by their fascinating offers. Especially using Bitcoin Lightning Network is really appreciable. I have already registered in this platform where i see that Instant Deposit with Virtually ZERO Fees and instant payout will be eligible by using Bitcoin Lightning Network. Users get 100% deposit bonus, after getting vip levels it will provide additional bonus, 10% cash back when Vip level hit. Currently Users get eight popular currencies to deposit in this platform. All the games have setting RTP rates. Those all are in one platform, So I expect it will make positive impact in the casino platform as well as take the gamblers attention rapidly.
I have been seeing Betplay in the forum for some times now even when I don't drop posts, I just decided to check their thread today and I am satisfied with the innovation they came with. The incorporation of LN in their platform. I have tried LN a couple of times and couldn't continue using it. I will have to try it out again.
Is the note left open after deposits  withdrawal, or closed immediately after deposit?
14  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: [Discussion] Should Gambling be Banned? on: July 26, 2022, 07:26:34 AM
Gambling can never be banned - it is the life support for the people and sometime it is very helpful for the economy for bringing in the revenue.
However even in the countries where gambling is banned - now they have found the ways to gamble and there is no stopping. People would not let the gambling banned.

In those countries, they saw the harm of gambling and decided to completely banned it to make sure they will lower the risk of their people's depression because as we already know, there are lots of people who lost compared to winning when it comes to gambling. But some people are just hard-headed and pursue their high-risk hobbies even though their governments forbid them from doing so. When they messed up themselves, they don't have anyone to blame but their own desire, and their government are free of what they have done with their life.
I don't support that gambling should be banned especially in this modern world of liberty. Internet and especially Bitcoin has brought some kinds of liberty and it will not make sense that government or authorities will deprive people this liberty. The best that should be done to gambling is some kinds of regulations that will protect children and ensure that number of addicts are reduced.

very surprising to see the defeat of chelsea in the friendly match against arsenal yesterday. even though it was only a pre-season game but still it showed that chelsea was really not ready at all. This is where the need for additional players who are superior. I hope that with this result Thomas Tuchel becomes aware that overconfidence also has its limits. and this is where chelsea really have to be willing to pay a lot in the transfer market to add a superior player. the existing players are already good. however the imbalance was still clearly visible during the game. so that chelsea lost badly by arsenal with a score of 4-0.
Thomas Tuchel spoke about the need for Chelsea to strengthen their squad ahead of commencement of the league going by their recent embarrassing loss to Arsenal in their pre-season match, he reiterated that the club is not good enough and not prepared for their first match against Everton on August 6, honestly the club needed to sign quality players ahead of the new season having signed two players already particularly a quality striker else the club might struggle to score goals just like last season even with Lukaku as their main striker in this upcoming season EPL will be very competitive going the quality signings of other rival clubs.
Chelsea doesn't need to sign more players as you guys are saying. Letís be specific, Chelsea need to sign a good striker, a goal getter to pilot this season. I don't believe in the ability of Werner, Harvests or Ziyech to lead the attack of Chelsea. The addition of Sterling is huge and they  need a good striker have a better result.  Just imagine a striker like Kane standing at the front of Chelsea line up, it would surely be a good season for the blues.

A lot of transfer talks going on and this is one of that's being covered quite a lot recently. Even the Marca, who are pretty reliable when it comes to spanish football have an article out about it. It will be difficult for Atletico to sign him though even with reduced wages. So, we'll have to wait and see what happens with Ronaldo. Most likely, he'll remain at United but it is pretty well noted by now that he isnt happy being there.
I think it is just speculation from the media. Although Marca is a famous media in Spain, we can't trust it 100%, they made the news to attract people's intention. They don't know what is happening exactly. There is no any statement from Ronaldo or from his agent related to the rumor of moving to Atletico Madrid. In my opinion, if he wants to return to La Liga, I believe 100% that he will join Real Madrid again. Or if he has no chance to return to La Liga, he surely will consider staying in Man United for 1 season again.


It's hard to see news about Ronaldo now because the news may only be intended to boost his name and news so that it continues to rise to the surface.
Look at how many clubs have been linked with Ronaldo after he said he would leave if there was a suitable club and see how long the news is getting more absurd.
I'm just wondering if they really care about the justification of the news or just want a lot of news to make a profit for themselves.
Some of the news if not majority are correct. Without being told, you will know that Ronaldo won't be accepted easily by any club. If I am an owner of a club, I will be very skeptical to sign Ronaldo, because his presence will be more controversial in the club. His old, he is expensive, he pursues individual glory before club glory and he is very influential, capable of distorting your team orderliness.
The news about ATM fans protesting that they don't need Ronaldo is true.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Does staking even make any sense on: July 25, 2022, 08:12:08 AM
Staking is a strategy from developers to make users loyal and willing to hold on for the long term, but a lot of staking in my opinion doesn't make sense, they dare to give APY up to thousands of percent and of course we deserve to be vigilant and make sure to do DYOR before staking.

It is the same thing for banks who operates fixed deposit account.  They use this method to make customers stick around with the bank and make their money to still in circulation within the system. But the difference is that local banks don't give upto 9.5% annual interest like crypto staking do but with 3 to 4%. For people that don't have urgent need of their money, staking is good. It's better than depreciating
Since when do banks give up to 3% or 4% interest? The most you'd get is 0.10% here, I also doubt that it's much higher in other countries. Staking stablecoins on Beefy can easily yield up to 10% to 15% APY, which is great. Even OP's APY is decent for the $1.000 he put, what did he expect, honestly. I'm currently earning approximately $1/day (10% APY), while my bank's deposit pays Ä2 per 3 months for double the amount I had deposited.

It's a relatively safe way to have a decent interest if you have money sitting around.
I don't know what the OP was thinking staking was. Staking is just saving your coin which we do with local banks without having anything to show for it. The 9.5% is OK, the impact would be seen when the amount of coins to be saved is higher. Letís say he is saving $100k, he will surely appreciate the interest he was given.
Staking is first saving before earning, if you want to earn, go trade with your coin with whatever leverage you want and earn huge.

Can someone still develop the habit of gambling and become an addict even though no one around gambles?

It is somehow had a huge impact on our lifestyle and can even forget gambling.
as if you are in this place,
 - Limited access to the internet
 - having a far distance from the city where offline casinos located
 - surround with business mindset people

It definitely will change everything as we are in the prior to adopting the new environment rather than got still crazy about gambling. But I hope we don't have reach to that point, that is why we have to control our addiction at all costs.
 
If anyone is found in the midst of people whose minds are not anyhow related to gambling, you will understand that gambling won't be that fun again. Since the gambler doesn't have anyone to discuss the gambling with, he would be pushed to focus online, but when the internet access is limited he will not enjoy the gambling again. There is high tendency for the person to change in such an environment.

Guys.. Don't you think it's a bit weird that a new account asks this question in the gambling section, logs out then a minute later another new account gets created and posts a link to a casino which I personally never heard of before! Both users never came back!
Also, how comes someone knows about the gambling board and knows he should post his question here but doesn't know any crypto casino?
Am not accusing OP of anything but I think all of this is a bit weird. I might be wrong, though.
It takes good observation and keen assessment to discover what you discovered. Left with me, I wouldn't have discovered this. After you said this I went and confirmed your information. Many people now device ways to advertise their projects indirectly maybe without being accused of spamming the community. But their strategy will not give the casinos the exposure they need.

There are more and more sources saying that Ronaldo is interested in a move to Atletico. Apparently he wants to return to Madrid where he feels at home.

Atletico would have to reduce the wage bill to accommodate his wages - and it seems they are open to allowing Griezmann to leave.

Some news carried are that he bought a house at Madrid.
I don't know how true the story may be but Ronaldo really want to move out.
Athletico have not made any official bid for Ronaldo yet
Ronaldo has a family house in Madrid and he has got some connections in Madrid than in Manchester. I guess he is seeing Madrid as home. He will feel ahome when he goes back to Madrid.
Any arrangement by Atletico Madrid should happen fast so that Ronaldo will join his new club for pre season trainings and adapt with any club he wants to play for.
