  1. Simeon, I don't want to offend you, but you are such a dreamer....:eek Only the money, which Ludogorets spent on new signings this summer, are more than the annual budget of Levski. Levski are in deep financial crisis, they lost their best player - Aniete, without whom last season they would have probably fought against relegation; they brought very sh-tty players. Sorry but Levski will finish outside top 3 - Beroe and Litex are much stronger than them at the moment. Ludogorets will be champions with 15+ points difference.
  2. Re: Queens Park Rangers v Chelsea > Sunday April 12th You're right. I've no idea what happened to Burnley's manager mind. Around Christmas time and early January they are playing one of the most entertaining football in Premier League. They were courageous and risk-takers, and it did pay off for them as they earned many points, some of which at the most difficult venues. In the last 5-6 weeks Burnley have been playing some ugly negative football and it doesn't give them any profit, apart from beating Man City once. They will go down if they don't change their attitude. It has always been a rule in Premier League that a team in the relegation zone in the end of March can salvage themselves only through attacking football and taking big risks, including playing offensive in the visits to top 4 teams. Just remember Sunderland last season and Wigan before that. Now Aston Villa began to play attacking football, after they were the ugliest team in the league for many months, and they are already far away from relegation. Leicester also have become very bold and it might pay off for them. But Burnely deserves to go down if they go on with this negative football.
  3. Re: FA Cup > February 14th - 16th Definitely NOT at this moment. Terrible Dzeko, awful Jovetic, poor Navas, Bony not playing yet - even Aguero before Wednesday was out of form. City's attack had been struggling to create anything in the last few weeks. This game should have goals in it. Middlesbrough not only scored twice at Etihad, but they had other 5 clean chances and only Caballero (and the post) spared City huge humiliation. There is a lot of pace and attacking flair in this Brough team.
  4. Re: Real Madrid v Ludogorets Razgrad > Tuesday December 9th Guys, no disrespect, but you must be crazy to back Real to win to nil at such odds in a meaningless game in which Ronaldo will be chasing Messi's goal record in CL.... Ludogorets will try everything possible to get on the score-sheet - they anything else but a cowardly team - and failed to score only once so far in the CL. If Real takes some good advantage, then the likelihood of away goal will be very big, as Real's midfield might no longer provide proper protection for their defense, and their full-backs might become much more adventurous going forward. Take for instance Real's opening match with Basel - after the White Ballet quickly decided the game outcome, Basel not only scored a goal, but they have at least 3 more clean chances to put another one behind Cassilas. Just watch highlights from that game to see how many gaps were there in Real's defense after they were 3 goals up-front. In my eyes this is a bad bet, and I would actually suggest otherwise - good value for BTTS.
  5. Re: Romania 2014/2015 Outstanding performance, mate!
  6. Re: Ludogorets Razgrad v Real Madrid > Wednesday October 1st
  7. Re: Ludogorets Razgrad v Real Madrid > Wednesday October 1st A bit off-topic. Ludogorets indeed have no fans. They are from a very small town and before 2010, they were playing only in lower divisions and village groups. Then, they were taken over by mighty local oligarch and you know the story. The people at Anfield were just some Bulgarian diaspora in UK, who out of nostalgia, would cheer for anything carrying the Bulgarian banner on it. In addition, Ludo has many "paid" supporters for Euro games - people mainly from their owner factories, who are obliged to attend games, and they get free tickets and free travels for this. However, in the local A PFG away derbies they usually have 5-6 people only in the visiting stand. Yes, the stadium will be absolutely full, but it is a big difference between a full stadium, consisting of non-supporters and people with little football culture on one side, and a stadium, full of passionate supporters. They just got no songs and no real support, and they keep quiet for very long spells of the game. If it was CSKA, Levski, Botev or Lokomotiv Plovdiv game, then the home factor would have been much more stronger and considerable.
  8. Re: FC Basel v Liverpool > Wednesday October 1st I am not very passionate about goals here, mainly because of Liverpool. It is just not working for them at the moment in the midfield and attack. They lose most of their flair and pace without Sturridge. Balotelli is a liability for them at the moment - he is keeping the ball for too long, slowing down their attack a lot, he is not taking active part in the deep pressing of Liverpool, and he simply doesn't seem to fit Rodgers' football philosophy. Besides that, Coutinho is totally out of form, and he is another key player who can give penetration and rhythm to Liverpool attack. The new signings in attack have zero contribution so far. All in all, Liverpool doesn't create even 1/3 of the chances they used to create last year. So, if Basel takes the lead and decided to defend it, I see it very hard for Liverpool to quickly get back in the game and make the over 2.5 happen.
  9. Re: Liverpool v Everton > Saturday September 27th I just cannot think of anything better than backing goals in this game. I know odds are not fantastic, but if you want, you can always wait for 5-10 minutes and get decent odds. But goals should be on the menu for very simple reasons: - This fixture features exclusively goals. One of the very few exceptions was two seasons ago at Anfield (0:0), but then Everton were clearly playing for a draw. - Both teams in dire need for 3 points in their quest for top 4. They missed both too many points in recent weeks and even a draw will compromise heavily their CL ambitions. I think this is a guarantee for two key things that help over-ish games: 1) Fast start, in contrast to many derby games whereas the two teams are examining each other during the first half and don't take risks 2) Both teams opening up, in contrast to one team being clearly happy with a draw. - Both teams perform very bad in defense, especially recently. In my view, poor defensive performance is more important factor for "overs" even than strong attacks. I know there is some sort of mythology about these early afternoon games not being very goal-friendly, but I believe for this particular game, both teams will be fired up from the start. Sturridge's availability will be a huge help for overs backers, but I think there will be many goals even without him.
  10. Re: Juventus v Malmö FF > Tuesday September 16th You're right, he was just suspended against Udinese, that's why he didnt play and this confused me. But I forgot to add the Antonio Conte factor. The architect of these Juventus is not there anymore. It is not clear yet whether Allegri will be up to his standards.
  11. Re: Juventus v Malmö FF > Tuesday September 16th It doesn't matter, even Malmo 2012 is very different team to Malmo 2014, and you are trying to compare Malmo 2014 with Kobenhavn 2012. All that matters are the current teams, the current circumstances correlated to the price available. I have little doubt that Juve will win and very likely they will win by a few....but I just believe it is not a good deal to take the same price as if Pirlo and Vidal were on the pitch, and Conte on the bench, when in fact all of them will be away.
  12. Re: Juventus v Malmö FF > Tuesday September 16th First, Malmo is obviously not a Danish team and I don't understand what relevance the scores of Nordselland have with regards to this match. Second, Malmo in 11/12 was a completely different team compared to Malmo 14/15. You can check yourself how many players from 11/12 are playing for Malmo today. Third, Juventus are missing three of their most influential players - Chiellini, Vidal and Pirlo. And here is the key point - if Vidal, Pirlo and Chiellini were available, you would not have got lower odds for Juve, but the price would have been still the same (you can check the home price for Juve with all key players available against Kobenhavn and Nordselland). So, this is obviously a bad deal - getting a price for Juve without three of the best players as big as the one you would have got with all of them available.
