Just seen fire alarm says replace by 2015. Replacing a fire alarm looks complicated and something I should not attempt on my own. Call an electrician? It does currently function fine and I've replaced battery.

Also, if house burned down, would insurance pay out if fire alarm was found to be out of date?

Liverpool offer £62 milly for a 'keeper;

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44864358

Looks like FSG are getting serious.

Would love to see Liverpool continue their revival, & to do that, a decent goalkeeper is vital.   

Butland staying at Stoke then.  Steam into the 6/1 to win the Championship. 

I don't read all the betting threads but every tip you seem to make on stoke is of this nature. For years it seems! I remember last year "put the house on laying Stoke to get relegated" Cheesy

For a clearly savvy gambler, do you reckon you have a blind spot when it comes to Stoke?

It's especially ironic given the shit you give Liverpool/Newcastle and probably many other teams' fans for not being able to "see the woods from the trees"!

Forgot about all the winning Stoke bets over the years then!  Sample size of one losing Stoke bet!  Was it a bad lay at 7/1 because they went down or because they should have been a 4/1 shot pre season?  Surely we not being results orientated here?  Forgot about all the big priced top ten finishes/match betting when they are over priced under Pulis because they were unfashionable.

Stoke have been backed from 8/1 into 9/2 in a place for the championship.  3/1 into 6/4 for a top two spot.  Would hardly say it is unsavvy.  Most of the squad are staying.  The money is there to be spent.  They are probably richer than every other club in the championship put together.

Sounds like plenty of "cant see woods from trees" fan money pilling in Wink

How is it clear and obvious if you have to study it forever?

This one didn't fall into the "clear and obvious" category, since it wasn't a decision he made and then reversed - he just didn't see it.

Then he gets told in his ear, take a look at this handball. He takes a look, yup I missed that, I think its deliberate therefore pen. It doesn't have to be clear or obvious for him to give it in this case. That's how I understand the rule anyway.

Whether that was the right decision is a different matter. He does move his hand and leg towards the ball and in an unnatural position, but it was so quick it's really hard to be sure it was deliberate.

Glad you've got this PSG guy. Arteta is highly regarded at City and I'm pleased he stays and continues to work under Pep.

What do you Gooners think of the appointment? Seems one of the best available options on the market.

Personally, as a number one fan, die hard gooner, so long as the manager isn't Mourinho, Allardyce, Rogers or Pardew  i couldn't give a monkey's who the manager is. I'd like us to move to the Chelsea model of a new coach every year or two. I would have liked to see Benitez appointed tbf, got a real soft spot for him ever since his famous FACT ! rant.


Can't beat a good ole FACT rant.

I wonder what M3Boy is up to these days.

I hope still giving his Regards

Either;

1) I've been whooshed yet again, or....

2) You may be confusing M3Boy with MPower. (FACT).

FML

I'm so out of the loop now Tony.  Where is MPower, i liked his fantastic posts.

Regards

S

No worries Chris.

Regards is still around, more a reader than a poster these days but posts on the Politics threads from time to time, & on my Diary occasionally.

How are you these days?  What you up to? Life good?



Things are going well yeah, not much poker or betting after probably realising i'm not too good at either, been working hard & recently set up my own business (if anybody needs some life or illness insurance nudge nudge) and i got a baby on the way, figured if cos can do it so can i!

Are you still crushing? Smiley

If Tikay read Cos's diary, he'd know all that. Don't blame him, mind.

Oh, and COME ON ENGLAND.

Had 3 week old baby in the beer garden with us, didn't bat an eye lid of course but I'll tell him about it when he's older. Top England memory lifetime, and probably 2nd best all-time football memory behind Istanbul. #itscominghome

I cannot believe Colombia are 3/1

Obviously want England to win and would have them slight favourites if James Rodriguez is out but there's not much in it really surely?

I read that England have gone off favourite for every single world cup finals match they have played since the 2002 world cup. Including Germany in 2010

As extra time has to be a possibility the 6/4 Colombia to qualify really appeals https://www.oddschecker.com/football/world-cup/colombia-v-england/to-qualify

England are 1/2 in that market. I might even venture an exclamation mark at that price...

Someone else can give me the other view please....why England at 6/5 is the bet.



I know this is a gambling forum so naturally people gonna speculate on prices... but it amazes me how people think that worldwide markets and exchanges with tens of millions being bet on every match have got these prices so wrong. Colombia were awful in the groups, got lucky to beat Senegal, lost to Japan and beat a woeful Poland. And their best player is injured.

As with all WC matches, the prices were probably about right, with between 1 and 5% edge to the bookies.

When are they going to start booking players for play-acting?

Out and out cheating IMO, they should be ashamed of themselves.

Despicable.

+1.

The annoying thing is that it would be so easy to eradicate. Just send them off first time they do it. The authorities just don't have the will to do it. They book players for removing their shirt though.

 

Afternoon Tikay. I don't think it's easy to eradicate at all. How do you judge at the time, or indeed in retrospect whether someone is faking an injury? Sure there are some clear ones where man grabs his face having been shoved in the back, but there'll be ludicrous numbers of grey areas.

Neymar gets taken out, falls to the ground, rolls once - couldn't help it. Twice, ok....three times...excessive.....four times - yellow! Would be a nightmare for the officials. I wish something could be done though, same as everyone does.

Wasn't that South Korea goal enough to persuade the luddites?   In past World cups that goal would have been disallowed and it is a lot less likely that the second would follow.   South Korea would likely have gone home without that great victory against Germany on their resume.  Sure it doesn't make a difference to the rest of the tournament, but it sure mattered to them.

The incident itself is surely enough of an argument to persuade the luddites. <3 VAR.

The sentimental knock-on effect is irrelevant though. It could've been the other way around and VAR denies Korea that joy.

I took a look at the penalty markets on bet365 out of interest. I don't know what they were before but you can get 7/4 on a penalty being awarded in each of the upcoming games. i think there's been 12 in the 20 game sample so far. I assume the prices post-VAR have adjusted though.
