Will Reus leave Dortmund?

Posted on | November 28, 2014 | No Comments

Marco Reus is one of the most wanted players in Europe, with teams such as Arsenal, Manchester United, Bayern and Real Madrid after him.

The German international contract with BVB ends in 2017 but there is a release clause in his contract of €25 millions. Latest rumors from Spain suggest that Real Madrid have gave up on Reus but they could reenter in the race at the end of the season.

Marco Reus suffered a serious injury in his side’s 2-2 draw with Paderborn that will keep him out of the field for the rest of year. This could prove to be a good thing for Borussia because the chances leaving the club this winter are smaller.

Borussia are having a disastrous season as they are on a relegation spot in Bundesliga.

What are Kubrat Pulev’s chances to beat Vladimir Klitschko?

Posted on | October 23, 2014 | No Comments

In the middle of November, Vladimir Klitschko is signed to fight a Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev. This fight will challenge Klitschko’s champion title in super heavyweight. But for the assignment from the IBF, Klitschko wouldn’t have this fight, as it is of no interest  to the public.

Bookmakers and online casinos predict Klitschko to win with odds varying from 1,1 to 1,17. Odds for Pulev winning are 5-7. Moreover, at the website you will learn about the operating principle of bookmakers and online casinos that allow to make bets online.

Pulev is not a bad boxer who has defeated quite strong rivals – Alexander Dimitrenko, Alexander Ustinov, Joe Abel, Tony Tomphson. With good speed and heavy jab, he has the ability to analyze the situation and see rival’s weak spots. However, online casinos are sure that the Bulgarian just can’t compete with Klitschko and  be considered a  real threat for his champion title.

Vladimir Klitschko has been unbeaten for 10 years. Since 2004, he is the best  in super heavyweight, with 20 wins in 20 fights. He has proven his champion title 18 times straight up. As bookmakers and online casinos fairly note, in all these years Vladimir Klitschko hasn’t faced a worthy rival.

Of course, Klitschko isn’t flawless. He has his weak spots – that he protects skillfully, though. For example, he has a weak chin. Who can reach it, though? The Ukranian’s main rival is Bermane Stiverne, the current WBC heavyweight champion. Vladimir is eager to win back the champion title  that used to belong to his brother Vitali. Vladimir may also fight against Tyson Fury, Dereck Chisora, and Deontay Wilder, all of which are still unbeaten by him. The fight against any of the above-mentioned boxers is of great interest  both for German and American crowds.

Pulev outgoes Klitschko’s  ex-rivals in his size. The pretender has almost the same height and weight as the champion. With his stamina, Pulev can last into late rounds when Klitschko will be exhausted. Still, this scenario is unlikely. Not being one of the super punchers, Pulev can only dream of winning.

Sri Lanka v England Series

Posted on | October 14, 2014 | No Comments

The English cricket team will travel to Sri Lanka for a one day series this November with captain Alastair Cook looking to rebuild his reputation and lead the side to victory. Bookmaker Betfair make Sri Lanka the strong favorites to win the seven game series, with Angelo Mathews’ team having been put in at the 4/9 mark. The odds compilers at Betfair are less keen on the chances of England, with the fifth ranked team in the world on offer at odds of 13/8. Sri Lanka are ranked just a single place above the English as far as one day cricket is concerned, so on paper at least, this series may be a little closer than the bookmaker prices suggest. Sri Lanka arguably come into the match in better form, but this is a different team to the one that was victorious at the ICC World Twenty20 championship. Although England were beaten by India in their last one day series, victory in the last of the five matches will have given the players a bit of encouragement and it will be interesting to see if the English are able to get off to a good start come November.

Kevin Pietersen’s autobiography has definitely not helped England’s chances in any upcoming matches, with the media currently obsessed by the revelations coming from the former opening batsman. Allegations of bullying within the camp have been strenuously denied, but it’s hard to believe that all the claims made by Pietersen are false. It’s difficult to see a way back into the side for the South African, but he has made it quite clear that he’s very keen to return to the fold as soon as possible. For Kevin Pietersen to return, I feel that it would need a complete overhaul of the people in charge of English cricket at the highest level, and I just don’t see that happening anytime soon. It’s a very unfortunate situation, as a batsman the quality of Kevin Pietersen is exactly what the English side is lacking, and there doesn’t appear to be anyone else ready to make the opening batsman position their own and consistently produce results.

Sri Lanka recent results have been very impressive indeed, and they have actually now won their last five competitive matches in succession. Four over those wins came against Pakistan, and one was over South Africa. Both of these opponents are of the highest quality and Angelo Mathews side should come into the series with England brimming with confidence. Marvan Atapattu has done a fantastic job since arriving as coach and he was given the job on a full time basis in September after some really positive results during a period as interim coach. Looking at some of the other markets available at on the Sri Lanka v England series, 7-0 Sri Lanka can be backed at odds of 22/1 and in the current climate, that result is not beyond the realms of possibility. A more realistic option might well be Sri Lanka to win by a score of 5-2, an outcome which the Betfair odds compilers have put in at 5/2.

Will Shaqiri leave Bayern?

Posted on | October 10, 2014 | No Comments

Xherdan Shaqiri is one of the most wanted players in Europe at this moment. The Swiss international failed to impose at Bayern but his performances with the national team attracted interest from Premier League. Shaqiri was wanted by Liverpool this summer but Bayern have not accepted to let their man go.

The 23 years old winger has to compete with players like Robben, Ribery, Goetze or Muller. Shaqiri declared recently that is not happy with his situation and that he will have a discussion with the club officials again this winter during the transfer period.

Shaqiri arrived at Bayern in 2012 from FC Basel. Since then he made only 48 appearances and scored 10 goals.

Should Fifa introduce video replay?

Posted on | August 18, 2010 | No Comments

The video replay one of the most discussed topic in football in the recent years.

Everyone expects from the referees to be perfect, or at least to reduce the mistakes during the games but it looks that this is a very hard task to do. So everyone tries to find solutions, and Fifa is pressed from all sides to come with an alternative.

In the first phase Fifa tried the system with 6 referees, tested it in Europa League, but even this solution doesn’t seem to be better. There were also speculations that the ball should contain a chip to signal when the ball passes the line of the goal but the solutions is not well seen by the specialists.

So at the moment it looks like the only viable solution is the video replay.Regarding the video replay the opinions are divided with a plus for it. Fifa is pressed to take a decision especially after the World Cup mistakes, when some of them proved to be crucial.

So after rugby, basketball, tennis or american football we might have video replays also in football. This decision would bring advantages but not only.

At advantages we can mention fewer mistakes that can decide games and fewer scandals. On the other side the spirit and the charm of the game would suffer.  Imagine for example a game show with a similar setup – a Who Wants To Be Millionaire Online Game for example would take so long and become boring. Also the game could have more than 10 minutes of additional time which could determine the players to lose their patience  awaiting for the verdict, the fluidity of the game could also suffer.

The final decision will be taken in November but there are chances for a positive answer.
