I was counting on goals in the Hoffenheim match, still 0-0 well into the second half.
Were the two late goals too late?

On Saturday afternoon, as you observed that...

They're scoring goals too quickly in Germany.
I was staring at this:

Oh, how I laughed! ;)
Yeah, my bot laid Under 4.5, I was expecting a first half goal or two.

Don't rub my face in that. I've just had my £1.99 happy meal, cheeseburger and small fries. Choice of 15 drinks, coffee not one of them!

I gave the toy to a little kid that was buzzing around my table, even he didn't want it. He had a quick look at it and then chucked it on the floor. :lol:

I've been caught drinking at work enough times. :lol:

Now I'm trying to get more load onto my bots. They're teatotal. :mrgreen:
Well your boss seems a lot more forgiving than mine!

You could consider sacking him and hiring someone like Gordon Ramsay 👨‍🍳

Just seems like a slippery slope, taking this for granted, while so many work tirelessly to even find an edge :ugeek:
I am like Derek above, I was having a nice bottle of wine with my Sunday roast, came back to my computer and see I am a nice few pounds up with the Westham Arsenal halftime score, nothing like having a sober bot.
At least you applied it to the right market and the right sport!

On a more srs note I think it generally makes sense to look at overs when the subs come on, some teams have KDB to put on while others have way too much firepower not to use it like LFC aka "Second Half FC".

For MO the first half is convenient to trade before decay kicks in, so some positions instead of depreciating can actually gain in value, altho biggest price swings are 2nd half for sure. but ideally by that time you already have green to chase them with.

Overall for me this market is how well one reads ingame situations, in relation to pricing. Yes, pretty efficient long term but so much can happen in between. From my pov it helps to look 1-2 goals ahead, but not much point looking for goals (as in plural) if the next one kills the game off and the incentive drops off a cliff when the tactics switch to not conceding instead.

Hot take maybe about match comms, some people mute them but I don't find them useless, they often provide some data/stats clues which is part of their match programme narrative prep, so overall they can help frame trades too.

Palace in West Ham mode sitting back and letting Chelsea do what they like but it's Chelsea they playing and not Arsenal :lol:

Farcical start or non start to the 2nd half, if the tech doesnt work give it 3 mins then throw it in the bin and get on with the game

Not sure Roy is adventerous enough to go for a win. That's the difference between the top sides and Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and City would of absolutley rinsed Palace by half time tonight.

Was just gonna say if that 2nd Chelsea goal came earlier it could have really opened up the game

But there was still time for another one 👍

Yes Chelsea just had that bit of extra quality than Palace but not more than the top 6 sides. They need that striker desperatley IMO but won't see one this season. I do like Palmer, I really rate him.

He deserves a place in the England squad for the Euros but it'll be for cover for Foden who's just that bit better IMO but that's what football is opinions.

Sad story this with Sven-Goran Eriksson, didn't know he was a LFC fan

Really puts things into perspective when you're given a year to live at best

I'm sure they could arrange for him to manage one last game
Have to admire the way he's taken it, judging by his appearance on TV at least. It hasn't wiped the smile off his face.
Sven-Goran Eriksson will manage Liverpool in Ajax legends charity clash next month 👍

Small but interesting read regarding Man City and Girona if both qualify for next season's Champions League one will have to miss out due to UEFA rules on having multiple ownership in the same competition. Possible issues for Man U with Jim Radcliffe and Nice also.
