Have you ever watched one of those jihadist videos and instantly wished you could have a mind wipe? I have that same desire after clicking on a BBC news story about Vardy’s wife.


sport_____

Are there any reliable numbers for the total cost of Haaland operation? Some old articles from Spanish press are mentioning 300 million for 5 year including release clause + agent + father + joining bonus + salary. However recent reports suggest the number is closer to 200 million for 5 years, 85 million transfer + agent + father + bonus and 24 million per year salary.


ser_antonii

Reputable sources are saying about 60 million + bonus and commission. Same sources are saying he is getting paid as much as KDB (specific that it’s not more than KDB) which means about 20 million a year.

blows my mind that we took [this kickoff](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-FafK-joe8&ab_channel=SpreadSheetSoccer) from Bournemouth and also should have scored with it with Vini vs City


avolcando

>And then made it better >Real Madrid don't score 🤔


Share4aCare

Yeah tbf I think Madrid’s way would work more on average, it’s an easier ball to the flank. That Bournemouth pass was masterful


tiorzol

What the chances of a Wolves upset tonight? If the game was played 100 times how many times do you think Wolves get at least a point, 10 times?


CrebTheBerc

I know this isn't related to your question, but how do you feel about Vieira so far? I thought he did a solid job in France from the few games I watched, although I think that's not the general consensus of Ligue 1 fans, and I wanted to watch more Palace games but haven't been able to.


tiorzol

He's fantastic, just an incredible presence in the club and he's changed our style in such a short amount of time from a turgid defensive one to a possession based team. Really can't overstate how happy Palace fans are with him and the aura around the club at the mo.


CrebTheBerc

Ty for the info! I thought he did really well with Nice with the limited budget and players he had available. Have a soft spot for both palace and Vieira(as a manager, not a player lol), so good to hear it's going that well. I'll try to catch more palace games


Jabari313

I think 15 tbh. More to do with City failing to turn up than Wolves' quality but yeah Wolves are decent and even City have a shit game a few times a season


cheikhyourselfm8

Definitely a chance. City did need some VAR black magic when they played them at the etihad


sul01

The exchange has City at 1.29/1.3 suggesting City win 77 times out of 100 - therefore wolves upset 23 times. If you're asking me I have no clue - have barely watched any wolves games this season if any and rarely watch City either


tiorzol

The bookies will always favour the house too so 10% sounds about right. I've watched almost all the City games and some Wolves. I think 10% is a bit generous it's madness that they are still 8th in the league.


sul01

The exchange doesn't have juice in the odds (it has a 2% commission though). Tbh not quite sure what number I feel is right but I feel Wolves have <90% chance of losing the game so >10% getting a result. I don't like predicting or betting on football results because it's a low scoring game etc however the fact that it's low scoring means that it's generally easier to get an upset than youd reasonably think. Was planning to go more into it but have got some work to do before I leave for the game so probably should keep it brief. I feel if you try and simulate the game being played x times one would generally have a greater bias to the favourite. However if you were to simulate the scenarios in terms of number of goals scored I feel generally most would come up with a greater number for Wolves win/draw. Realistically the likelihood of Wolves scoring >2 is negligible (not more than 1% you'd think) So more or less have to consider the odds of: Wolves clean sheet Wolves scoring 1 & City scoring 1 Wolves scoring 2 & City scoring 1 but <3 (awww that's a heart - sorry got distracted by that) I feel you can probably give a bit less than 10% chance of a Wolves clean sheet - let's say 8%? Then reckon you can probably give like maybe 5% combined for the other two? Not really thought about it much but feel its fair. Then there's maybe a couple % you can add on for all the combined unlikely scenarios - eg City Red card or Wolves getting 3 etc etc. Which would maybe get 15% Tried to be somewhat conservative but also fair. Then there's also the fact that the game is at home which I've not taken into account because well cba tbh but that may increase their chances too. Not quite sure what I'm trying to say other than I feel a 10% chance of a win/draw for Wolves is quite low especially given they are relatively solid at the back (only City Liverpool and Chelsea have conceded less). Conceding 3 to Brighton and 2 to Lukaku makes their backline lose credibility in addition to the loss of Kilman but I reckon can give them at least 15% tbh.


tiorzol

Damn that's some depth! I only really bet on half time/full time results in footy, "worse" team to win the first half and then the better team to win overall. Been good to me over the years but it's super hit and miss as you'd expect.


sul01

Yeah I remember you mentioning that at some point before- iirc you had it for your game against Milwall in the cup? Must be frustrating at times if there's an equaliser just before ht or the 'worse' team scoring just after ht and losing but bad beats happen with every market tbh. Yeah can imagine it being hit and miss - something you gotta be persistent with though of course as can easily have a bad run - but then a good run later at some point. I'd imagine its great for having that adrenaline rush (or whatever that feeling is) while being able to maintain a sensible stake at the same time. I personally used to bet a lot on corners when I started but since a bit after the lockdown I got a bit jaded of betting on them and also wanted the reduce the quantity of bets and improve the quality (be more selective) so apart from cards I've stopped betting on football tbh. Only do it with select refs and teams game scenario/matchups though - and I do it on a weird book where you can win or lose more depending on how much you win/lose by. Makes it a bit weird in that way feel like you've lost money even if making a profit if the refs not wanting to send many off - but then some European games like the City Atletico 2nd leg are just a treat. Wanted to potentially it with the Leeds game tonight tbh coz dirty Leeds etc but the lines a tad high and would probably have to do it before the game as thought Id go up to watch it so won't be able to do it inplay and I'd rather just enjoy the game than be thinking about a bet - I remember our last game at the Bridge against them I placed some inplay on cards (on a normal book tho) and kept screaming "book him you cunt" or something at the ref - I like to think the ref heard me when he booked meslier at the end for delaying time before then penalty and won me my bet. Also Taylor can be quite inconsistent/weird with cards - he often books players for diving or gk timewasting etc but is quite lenient with reckless fouls and if I got any hesitations/doubts I prefer to just leave the bet and sit with what I have which is something I've learnt to do recently and has done wonders for me.


tiorzol

That's some memory! Yep hit on Millwall and recently against Southampton too. The enjoyment bit is weird like sometimes if I don't put a bet on when I think about it, it annoys me watching the game but most of the time I'll enjoy a game more if I don't have anything on it. Stupid brain.


sul01

Hahaha yeah I get you, if you decided against placing that bet you're praying for that bet to have lost etc. That Southampton one was quite a later winner too if im not mistaken. Similarly, I oddly get more pleasure out of not placing a bet which I was debating but decide against when it loses than I do from a winning bet - Serie A games are often hard to resist with esp with cards in certain games w certain refs ngl but the satisfaction of having restrained yourself when a bet loses is class for me. Always find it weird watching a football game with a bet on - I'm more thinking about scenarios for the bet to win than watching the game organically like when i used to place corner bets I sometimes got annoyed/paid significantly more than a normal amount of attention at the way the ball was deflecting off players etc which just takes away from the enjoyment of the game and probably was a tad unhealthy looking back on it. Definitely a more enjoyable/normal experience without a bet - but sometimes need something else to stimulate my brain but tend to just play with my dog if I'm at home instead of having a bet.


Plenty_Sound_8425

Feels like we're going through a struggle at this point at the worst possible time. Salah can't get back into form and the others are beginning to look tired. Just hope we recover enough for the FA cup final cause I know nothing short is gonna happen in the title race.


NeoIsJohnWick

I wish you all the best for all the games except the one vs Royal Madrid.


Important_Tip_2775

You know we’re *joint top the league and we only drew to spurs and you think we’re going through a struggle? Yet we’ve won every game game bar Benfica and city prior to that. Pessimism at its finest.

Martianman97

Amazing that their goal was not called for offside. Every game refs get basic decisions wrong


inspired_corn

Only Liverpool fans could watch that game and decide *they* were the ones who got screwed by the refs


Iknockedyou

To be fair Villa scored a goal that should have been offside and Liverpool had no major decisions go their way that shouldn't have done so it's hardly an injustice


Martianman97

So the team that had a goal against them that should have been disallowed was the one that got favoured? Right


mosalad29

yeah I see that we were favoured but that's jon moss he's genuinely shit


pgecco70

A lot of refs have been shit this season and a lot of teans have suffered aswell . A good ref is a ref that no one knows there babe as the gane flows without any fuss but these refs have massive egos .


mosalad29

MarwaariMaradona

OTD has just turned into a way for fans to shit on their rivals or for messi, ronaldo stans


LumpyActive

Pretty sure the amount of signing bonus Haaland and his dad would be getting is insane. No way he transferred for only 60m. Dortmund was robbed but I think it was all pretty much decided when he signed the contract.


glockiie

Dortmund got a world class striker for a couple of seasons, gained a lot of new fans and followers on social media, won a DFB Pokal and sold him for a significant profit. They did nothing wrong


ChairmanChopsII

Yeah Dortmund set that release clause because they had to to sign him. He was always going to leave again


[deleted]

Reported to be around 100M Transfer + Signing bonus + Commission


Akshath321

psg will definitely get midfielders right? so who do they sell? paredes? gueye? herrera?


jonijontor

Herrera definitely won't leave because no one will pay him that much to be a club ambassador lol


RomeoLavia

Their midfield situation is odd. Gueye and Parades are the ones who don't have long left on their contract, but outside of Verratti they are probably the two they would want to lose the least. They need to sell about four midfielders if they can.


Sensitive-Talk-8487

NeoIsJohnWick

Juan Mata had a better career and was a better No. 10 than James Rodrigues.


WyrdWired

3 Primeira Ligas on the bounce, a Europa League with Porto, a Puskas award, 2 La Ligas, 2 Bundesligas, a World Cup Golden Boot and 2 Champions Leagues 2 Club World Cups, a DFB Pokal, couple of Portuguese cups, 9 supercups in 4 countries How has Mata bettered this career?


_LebronsHairline_

The best season of Mata's career he had 0.84 G+A per 90. James bettered that 4 times in his career. Mata's second best season(0.73 G+A/90) would be James' 8th best season in terms of output.

Do you see Mourinho as a villain who is on a redemption arc by trying to win the Conference League?


QuixoticDino

No, Mourinho is a hero.


BruiserBroly

He's more of an anti-hero, like Batman. Edit: I have no idea if the people replying to me are joking but Batman's been considered an anti-hero by many since Frank Miller's runs in the 80s. Just because he doesn't gun down people for misdemeanors like the Punisher doesn't mean he isn't one too.


burningbarn8

Batman isn't and has never been considered an anti-hero, no that didn't change post Frank Miller run. He doesn't kill anyone, the dude's no more ethically compromised than Spider-Man. Mainline Batman isn't, and has never been, an anti-hero. Genuinely baffled anyone would call him that, like what just because of the aesthetic?


BruiserBroly

Really? [Because I wonder who is that guy in the picture at the top of TV Tropes' anti-hero entry?](https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AntiHero) [Or is literally the first entry on the DC comics section of the anti-hero entry?](https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/AntiHero/TheDCU) [Or has](https://collider.com/reasons-why-batman-is-perfect-antihero/) [many articles](https://www.comiccrusaders.com/batman-the-antihero-gotham-deserves/) [out there](https://www.bartleby.com/essay/Batman-As-An-Anti-Hero-FCACRD66YBV) [that call](https://whatculture.com/comics/4-reasons-why-batman-must-be-considered-an-anti-hero) [him an](https://www.kibin.com/essay-examples/batman-the-original-anti-hero-z7xhmDGu) [anti-hero?](https://www.sjsu.edu/faculty/mary.warner/StudentLinks/2008_Fall/SLoveUnitOfStudy.htm) Just because he doesn't kill doesn't make mean he isn't an anti-hero.


burningbarn8

Dude, he's as morally upright as fucking Spider-Man. Who also has the very occasional comic where he's portrayed as an anti-hero. He's still just overall considered a hero, Batman is not an anti-hero, he's a bog standard hero the majority of the time. "However, Batman's status as an anti-hero ultimately depends on who's writing or portraying him; many have leaned towards a more traditional idea of heroism. For example, while Frank Miller's fits this trope like a glove, it's really hard to describe Adam West's Batman as an anti-hero." Frank Miller is one writer, no he has not been considered an anti-hero ever since lmfao.


BruiserBroly

Yes, Frank Miller is one writer but he also happens to be the writer who took Batman out of his previous golden and silver age characterisation into what he has since become, an anti-hero. How can you say Miller is just one writer when he is the writer that had the most influence on modern Batman and comic book anti-heroes as a whole? Anyway, this is what you said: >Batman isn't and has never been considered an anti-hero and I posted a lot of evidence to prove that he actually is considered that. If you still have an issue, TV Tropes is editable so you can edit those two links I posted to remove Batman if you want. If he is so obviously not considered an anti-hero by everyone like you say he is, I'm sure he won't be re-added immediately. Or you could read some of the rest of the links I posted and maybe learn something? Up to you mate.


burningbarn8

Lmfao no, you calling Grant Morrison's Batman an anti-hero? Scott Snyder's Batman an anti-hero? Ridiculous. Look at the Robins he's 99% on good terms with, Dick Grayson, Tim Drake, standard good guy heroes, the Robins he's often in opposition with, Damian Wayne, Jason Todd, actual anti-heroes. He's not an anti-hero ffs. He works closely with the cops, he's Superman's best friend, he talks kids out of suicide, he puts saving lives over justice to criminals, the dude's a hero with a dark aesthetic. No you haven't, you posted one links to a tropes page that says he's only sometimes an anti-hero, congrats.


BruiserBroly

Here's a link to my comment: https://www.reddit.com/r/soccer/comments/umdqdm/daily_discussion/i86dnho/ Check it again. Here's a hint, the first sentence is one link, the second sentence is another link and there are 6 links in the last sentence. Surely, you don't need to be the world's greatest detective to have seen that? You can clearly see I haven't edited that comment. Those are just random articles I found by the way, there are way more. If you still have an issue with this, I guess you can start your personal crusade to change this commonly held point of view. You could edit those TV Tropes pages like I suggested earlier. How about writing a comment on all those articles or writing a response to those authors calling them out for considering Batman an anti-hero if you want? I've done what I wanted to do, prove that people do in fact consider Batman an anti-hero. Have a good one!


burningbarn8

There are also people who consider the Earth flat. Both groups are wrong.


BruiserBroly

Yeah, a plausible belief based within the definition of the term anti-hero is totally comparable to a conspiracy theory that completely disregards all scientific evidence and rational thought. What kind of argument is this? Go edit those TV Tropes pages if you're so convinced everyone that disagrees with you is wrong. Be the change you want to see in this world. Fight the power brother!

Real Madridi is gonna win for sure 100%. I hate it but it's a fact. Liverpool have no chance. the madrids don't lose important finals with this squad.


gugly

Lol let’s see. Might be worth it for you to throw some money on Madrid though as all betting sites have them as underdogs and you clearly know something they don’t


anusFati

i've been making money from madrid ever since PSG. I have 200 EUR from the PSG comeback, then put the money made for a comeback against Chelsea, then I put them against City. I was hoping to lose every time. This time I'm putting money on them winning directly, but if you somehow score a goal first, i'm doubling those money for a comeback


gugly

Interesting strategy lol. Hopefully you lose multiple bets on the final day then


Lyrical_Forklift

I think it's extraordinarily close but Real Madrid being able to rest players until the final while Liverpool will need to play close to full strength could favour Real. Provided both sides are able to play close to their full strength sides I truly believe it's about 50/50.


plowman_digearth

We do look very tired and what happens in the FA Cup and League till then will impact the psyche of the players. I think this close title race has burnt both teams and it shows in our "tough" fixtures.


pgecco70

That fa cup final is gonna go all the way like the league cup . Be a very good final .


NegativeHeli

I don't know. It can go anyone's way. It's not like any team is clearly better than the other unlike the other KO stage matches.


doriscissorsfind441

I think Liverpool is clearly much better. Real Madrid have ridden so much luck and have a destiny like desire to win though.


aceofmufc

What do you mean by luck? The team that wins the tie deserves to win the tie. Liverpool are just as lucky as Real Madrid to be in the final.


NegativeHeli

Liverpool's opponents in the KO stage were all teams which are much weaker than them. Maybe only Inter could pack a punch against them but they're a league above Benfica and Villareal. Real Madrid had to beat PSG (a team with Messi, Mbappe and Neymar), Chelsea (the previous UCL winners), and hardest of all, Man City (arguably the best team in the world)
