No cash involved, just the equivalent of ROD$, but I did make a rare bet on West Ham today. I was hoping for a really unlikely Push for most of the game. I can't barely believe i've ended up with a miracle win. lmao.

Partly with his first Arsenal start! Sucks though it’s 10am local time on a work day.

Was a nice goal but went off injured which happens far too much where he is concerned. Not sure about that commentary though Olders! Still a good point for us that.

You did better vs them than we did last weekend.

My local team the Reno 1868 have ceased operations. They were basically the academy team for the MLS San Jose Earthquakes. With the revenue losses due to COVID for both leagues they cannot stay afloat. Lifelong dream of having a local pro sports team gone down the drain. Season tickets are over dream is crushed. Have a few friends that work for the team as well so they’re looking for work now in the COVID world to help support their families.

Lots of crushed dreams.

Great penalty by Lookman :ROFLMAO:
Soft penalty in the 1st place and I thought the officials favoured Fulham quite a bit during the game.
Terrible penalty. I always hold to the idea of a 2 or 3 step run and aiming for a spot 1 metre inside the post and 1 metre under the crossbar. That way you have a margin for error and the keeper is going to have to push it a long way to get it round the post, (if he can even get there). Along the ground, straight down the middle, putting it close enough to the post where any touch will put it onto the post, stopping the run to fake the keeper, and dink penalties all annoy the Hell out of me. If you're scared to aim near a top corner then give the penalty to someone else. Give me a Ray Stewart type to take a penalty.

Ray Stewart, what a player. Tonka was superb from the spot.

Screw NBC!!! Four matches tomorrow. Shit vs West Brom on tv. Leicster vs Wolves on TV should at least be a good game. City and Pool? Yeah that's on the pay app. Arsenal Villa? Yeah that's on the pay app. Go screw yourselves NBC.

A streaming site from PC to tv through a HDMI cable is my recommendation. I wouldn't know what to do with a mobile device. Good luck if you're trying to get games on your phone, tablet, i-pad, or whatever the things are.

Yeah I have a streaming site, going to pick up a cheap laptop and use it for that and for random movies I think. I'll always be able to watch games just where becomes the question. Can probably head to the electronics store and pick up a basic cheap one for $225 in the morning.

If it's purely for home streaming i'd recommend buying a cheap desktop locally or on Gumtree. I have access to a bunch of old machines which are ok for people to surf with but they don't have good enough CPUs or enough RAM to handle streaming. I bought a 2nd hand desktop with an I5 CPU and 8GB RAM on Gumtree for under £100. It sits next to the main tv and is just used for streaming.

So tired of this terrible new interpretation of the hand ball rule. Two given to LC today and neither should have been a penalty.

I haven't seen the incidents but i'm not a fan of what VAR has done to the game, (although I did see Man Utd's 2nd European game against RB Leipzig and thought that incident WAS a penalty and 2nd yellow card). At this point i'd rather get rid of VAR if it's for tv's rules or FIFA's rules instead of fans' rules.

This is the one that LC got. Have no clue what the defender is supposed to do with his arms it's not being waived around it's in a natural position.
