Togel Singapore Raking in on the Internet

Andy McClure, 21, looks nothing like someone making $70 an hour.

 

He wears the same old blue jeans and the same ragged T-shirts he’s had since his freshman year at the University. If you didn’t know better, you could swear his faded Yankees cap was surgically fixed to his head. He spends most of his time in bare feet.

 

That’s the part McClure likes most about his story. Most college students can only dream of a job that pays big bucks and allows them to sit around with their friends watching TV or listening to music. But that’s how McClure spends his time: hanging out and making money.

 

McClure is cashing in on America’s poker boom. He spends about 50 hours a week, he said, playing over the Internet. That’s earned him more than $40,000 since the summer, when he first sat down in — or logged into — an online poker room.

 

McClure cautions that’s just a fraction of what he expects to make now that he doesn’t have school or any other obligations to detract from his playing time. In 2005, McClure thinks he’ll make at least $200,000. “That’s a conservative estimate,” he said, noting that he could win several hundred thousand with a strong performance in a large tournament. Since Jan. 1, McClure has made about $18,000 online, he said.

 

McClure plays Texas Hold ‘Em, the seven-card game made popular by the World Series of Poker and other televised events. An inordinate surge of interest in the game nationwide is filling casinos, and social games among friends are making college students into poker aficionados.

 

The online gambling industry is also riding the Togel Singapore poker wave. There were almost 1.8 million regular online poker players in January, up about 10 percent from the total for December, according to PokerPulse.com, a firm that tracks the industry.

 

McClure said the recent upsurge of Internet players is already making a lasting impact on the game.

FIFA rejects use of technology again

 

FIFA’s president Joseph Blatter explained in a letter the motives why his organization opposes the use of technology to analyze uncertain plays, emphasizing the game has to be played under the same conditions whether it takes place in a village or in a modern stadium.

FIFA studied two proposed systems of establishing whether the ball crossed the goal line, one including a chip inside the ball and another similar to the technology used in tennis, but neither convinced them.

According to Blatter, “one of FIFA’s principal Data HK objectives is protecting the universality of the game of football. It means that the game must be played in the same manner everywhere in the world,” said the president.

“If one coaches a group of youths in a small village of the planet, they will be playing by the same rules applied to the professional players shown on TV.”

FIFA’s concern is that the cost of the technology would prevent its implementation in poorer regions.

“The implementation of modern technologies can be very costly and due to that it could not be used everywhere in the world. Around 900 World Cup qualifying games were played and the same rules have to be applied to all the matches within the same competition,” concluded a non-technologically minded Blatter.

 

Guerrero overcomes his fear of flying

 

The Peruvian international Jose Paulo Guerrero spent several months in his homeland, unable to return to Germany, where he plays for Hamburger SV, due to an intense flying phobia.

A few weeks ago the Germans sent him a psychologist whose task it was to treate Guerrero’s phobia and the move seemed to pay off. Last Thursday Guerrero took a trip to the airport in the company of his mother Petronila Gonzalez and boarded a KLM flight to Europe, where he is continuing a treatment for an injury he suffered early into the season.

Previous to the psychologist’s intervention, Guerrero did not manage to board a plane, alleging the phobia caused him gastric disturbances. It was even speculated he might …

UEFA’s president and Bandar Togel Singapore

 

 

 

Michel Platini, UEFA’s president, has launched a desperate plea to the leaders of all European countries asking them for help in the battle against ruthless soccer capitalists.

 

“A serious threat hangs over the development of European football. (…) Money has never been the ultimate objective of football: the main purpose has always been to win trophies. For the first time we may be entering an era in which financial profit alone will be the measure of sporting success,” wrote Platini in his letter to the only people who could stop several dozen tycoons from bringing all the best world’s players to several dozen West European clubs leaving the rest with nothing.

Platini knows that it is the EU politicians who have enabled the businessmen to treat soccer as just another branch of industry disregarding its particularities as a sporting competition with strong ties to local communities.

 

The interests of tens of millions of fans from less affluent parts of the world are being largely ignored by EU legislators and their protégés.

 

Quality soccer has been played for decades in hundreds of clubs over five continents but the unstoppable onslaught of magnates investing in English, Spanish, Italian and German team threatens to turn all other territories into a soccer desert.

UEFA’s president believes that English soccer is the most threatened due to the increaing interest of foreign billionaires investing in the Premier League, but it is really soccer elsewhere in the world that is being endangered by the situation, since hundreds of quality players pour into the Premiership draining other sources.

But, will any legislator put the long-term interest of soccer (and the fans) ahead of the profit of the football fat cats?

 

Alex Del Piero gives Donadoni a semi-ultimatum

 

Juventus’ captain Alessandro Del Piero, Bandar Togel Singapore is disappointed with his display against France (0-0) in the wide left role, but even more so by coach Robert Donadoni’s decision to play him where he doesn’t feel right.

 

“I accepted to play on the left flank, but it was the last time …

Platini soothes growing Togel pains of Ukraine

 

 

Michel Platini has said he is at last confident Ukraine can host Euro 2012.

Euro 2012.

Euro 2012

After several ‘last chance’ warnings over the past three years, the Togel UEFA boss can tear a few fewer hairs out now the four stadia do seem to be on track for next summer.

 

“A year ago, we were deciding whether to leave four or two cities,” Platini told reporters on a tour of Kharkiv. “And today we have four cities.”

 

“There are no serious problems in preparing for Euro 2012,” he continued, “but there are many minor tasks and problems that need to be solved.”

 

For Platini, a successful Euro 2012 is crucial to his reputation as an organiser of big soccer tournaments as he continues his silent campaign for the FIFA Presidency at some point in the future.

 

The Frenchman has found the two hosts’ lack of infrastructure and slow construction progress compared to western European nations an ongoing headache, and has constantly had to threaten them with being stripped of hosting rights. Spain was the first nation touted as a replacement back in 2008, when World Soccer’s Keir Radnedge boldly announced neither Poland nor Ukraine would host Euro 2012.

 

Then Germany entered the picture, either as sole host or as joint organiser with Poland. Now it is clear UEFA is not turning back and is throwing its cards on the table with the two unknown East European hosts. By rights the tournament should have been Italy’s, but the calciopoli scandal and an upsurge in high-profile hooliganism let the duo in through the back door.

 

It promises to be a unique European Championship, a foretaste perhaps of the 2018 World Cup in neighbouring Russia.

 

The cheap transport promised to fans facing extraordinarily long journeys between venues (Gdansk to Donetsk is 933 miles/1502km) yet to materialise.

 

Next month Platini visits Poland to inspect their venues, with the opening date of Warsaw’s new arena still up in the air.

UEFA EURO 2012 8th June -1st …

From bad to worse for Togel Hongkong Takeshi Okada

 

 

It may not have been delivered in so many words, but Japan coach Takeshi Okada received the dreaded ‘vote of confidence’ after surviving showdown talks with the Japan Football Association on February 15.

 

An emergency meeting was convened after Japan’s 3-1 humbling at the hands of Korea Republic in the East Asian championships in Tokyo – a result that prompted a public backlash the following day.

 

Hundreds of Japan supporters phoned JFA House to demand Okada’s sacking, but the erstwhile Yokohama F. Marinos coach has once again received the support of JFA chief Motoaki Inukai.

 

“I know that the media is calling for Okada to be fired, but it is a big risk to make such a change to a team that has been three years in the making just because of one or two results.”

 

“I don’t think it would improve the team only four months Togel Hongkong before the World Cup,” writes Inukai on the JFA website.

 

While Inukai continues to brush aside suggestions that Okada should be removed from his post, many Japan fans are downcast about their team’s chances at the upcoming World Cup finals.

 

An overwhelming majority believe that Japan will make a first round exit in South Africa, and recent performances have done little to lighten the mood.

 

Time is fast running out for Okada to wring some decent displays from his under-performing team, with morale seemingly at an all-time low under the struggling tactician’s regime.

 

Japan’s next game is at home to Bahrain in an Asian Cup qualifier on March 3, where the Samurai Blue will be desperate to put their indifferent form behind them and build some momentum ahead of the World Cup.

 

Bridge too far?

 

If people thought that the John Terry scandal was to be the most stringent assessment of Fabio Capello’s reign of the English national team, they obviously hadn’t counted on a World Cup-threatening injury to Ashley Cole this week.

 

Capello, already a media darling with the tabloids, was roundly applauded by all sections of …

Manchester City’s European Data Hk dream to end at Hamburg

 

 

Some would suggest that Manchester City were lucky to even qualify for the Uefa Cup this season after a penalty shoot-out victory over FC Midtjylland in the final qualifying round of this seasons competition. Well after sneaking through against Aalborg on Thursday night thanks to another spot kicks victory there can be no doubt that Mark Hughes’ side are riding their luck.

 

Some betting companies are making Manchester City favourites to win the Uefa Cup  but after another poor display in the last-16 and a tough draw against Hamburg I feel City will be fortunate to make it past the quarter-finals. For those of you who missed the game at the Energi Nord Arena, Aalborg scored two goals in the last five minutes of the game to take it to extra-time after knocking at the door of City’s defence for much of the second Data Hk half.

 

However the Danish side came unstuck on penalties and Hughes’ side somehow secured their passage through to the next round, but the draw for the quarter-finals has paired City with Hamburg who look to be dark horses to win the tournament after coming through against Galatasaray in the last round. Martin Jol’s side are enjoying a good season in the Bundesliga, sitting four points off top spot.

 

They have also already beaten English opposition in this seasons competition after over coming Aston Villa 2-0 in the group stages. Despite Villa putting out a much changed side for that game Hamburg looked good and are formidable at home this season. The German side have lost just once at home all season in the league and with City’s poor away form showing no signs of improving this tie could all be over by the time they travel to Manchester for the second leg.

 

Despite City’s array of talent they seem unable to come together as a team and with the likes of Robinho and Elano looking uninterested at this moment in time for me their can only be one winner of this quarter-final tie. As for the eventual Uefa …

Jeonbuk Race Away Bandarq Online Terbaik With First Title

 

 

The 2009 K-League season was a special one for a certain southwestern region as Jeolla Province welcomed the golden championship trophy for the first time ever. No longer can Jeonbuk Motors claim to be the only team on the continent to have won the Asian title without ever winning the domestic prize.

 

The car metaphor can be driven too far but the Motors were well-oiled from March to December. The team from Jeonju accelerated into top gear quickly, maintained top speed for most of the journey and despite a couple of bumps in the road and slippery patches, the engine was in just as good a condition at the end of the journey as it was at the beginning.

 

A late goal from Lim Sang-hyub gave Jeonbuk a draw at Bandarq Online Terbaik Gyeongnam on the first day of the season back in March and from then, the team never looked back. Six wins came from the next seven games with the only ‘failure’ a 1-1 tie at the home of Asian champions Pohang Steelers. Seven-time champions Seongnam were thrashed 4-1 and Jeju lost 5-0 at home while the favourites for the title, FC Seoul also came off second best.

 

Battling it out with Seoul and Pohang for first spot, Jeonbuk ended in identical fashion, collecting 19 points out of a possible 21 in the run-in. Such form enabled the team in green to finish top of the standings at the end of regular season. That didn’t mean the title however as in Korea, there are still championship play-offs to negotiate. They proved no problem as Jeonbuk defeated Seongnam Ilhwa in the final in early December –recording a 3-1 win that kept 37,000 fans warm in chilly temperatures.

 

There is no doubt as to which player grabbed the headlines. Lee Dong-gook did not have the best of times from 2006 to the start of 2009. ‘The Lion King’ missed the 2006 World Cup through injury, and then moved to England at the start of 2007. Those 18 months in the English Premier League with …

Pim Verbeek Interview: Asian Judi Online Cup Countdown

 

 

The 23-man squad has been named and now South Korea’s preparations for the Asian Cup and first round games against Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Indonesia in next month’s continental competition are ready to begin.

 

National team coach Pim Verbeek sprung few surprises at KFA HQ last Friday afternoon. The big issue was whether strikers Lee Dong-gook and Ahn Jung-hwan would be selected. Lee was, Ahn wasn’t.

 

So almost five years to the day since Ahn scored that famous golden Judi Online goal which sent Italy crashing out of the 2002 World Cup and South Korea to the quarter-finals, his international career was almost certainly seemingly ended. At 31 and struggling to find a starting place with K-League team Suwon Samsung Bluewings, the way back to the top looks to be a tough one for the well-traveled striker.

 

“Perhaps after the Asian Cup he can get back to his normal level but at this moment we never see him play,” Verbeek told the Korea Herald. “He is not playing and not scoring goals. He is struggling – he doesn’t have the confidence of his club coach so there’s no reason to choose him.”

 

With a number of Korea’s most experienced players injured, Verbeek admitted that the inactivity which has caused Ahn’s absence was a problem.

 

“If there’s somebody regretting that situation then it is me. I still think that the Ahn Jung-hwan we know can make a difference.

 

“I don’t know if it because of five months out of football, the way they play in Korea, the mental state he is in after playing so many years in Europe and then coming back to Korea – I don’t know,” continued the Dutchman. “The only thing I can do is watch the matches, look at the players and pick the best ones.

 

“I am 100% sure he will understand.”

 

The absence of Ahn’s 2002 and 2006 team-mates Park Ji-sung, Lee Young-pyo and Seol Ki-hyeon from the roster was expected but still unfortunate. The English Premier League stars are all recovering from surgery …

Making Friends with the Dominoqq Locals

 

 

Sao Paulo on the other hand illustrated to the footballing world exactly why they are champions of South America, playing some breathtaking football in the opening period. With Costa Rican outfit Deportivo Saprissa having won the play-off for third place in the warm up game before the final, in front of a largely disinterested crowd, it is the Americas who Dominoqq have best acquitted themselves in this year’s tournament in Japan. Europe has failed to produce a King of Kings once again.

 

Liverpool were poor at best in the first half, with the Brazilians deserving of the advantage they took into the interval. In the second period however, Sao Paulo were virtually non existent, forced to desperately defend their slender lead. Liverpool spent the entire second half orchestrating wave after wave of attacks, bombarding the Sao Paulo goal from the first whistle until the last. As Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez said after the game: “The first thing I can say is congratulations to my players as we deserved to win. We had 21 shots and 17 corners and hit the bar twice and scored three disallowed goals. We couldn’t have done anymore to win.”

 

You can quote all the statistics in the world though, but the only one that matters is the final score line. One last glimpse at the scoreboard as the referee blew his whistle for a final time confirmed for me and the other 66,000 present that the game finished without us having equalised. Some of the decisions made by the officials may have been harsh, dubious, ridiculous, even scandalous …but the simply fact is that with refereeing judgments you’re as likely to be a beneficiary as a victim. We didn’t score so we deserved what we got: nothing.

 

Liverpool’s failure to cancel out the Brazilian’s first half strike outlined our main areas of weakness in terms of personnel, emphasising in the cruelest of contexts, that despite being European Champions we still remain three or four short players of being a truly formidable side. With the transfer window just

around the corner, …

Panorama Bungs Scandal and Data Sgp

 

 

 

 

Another Pyrrhic Victory? – Panorama “Bungs Scandal”

 

The BBC thought they had scored a hit with their recent documentary supposedly exposing the kickbacks involved in English football but was it the opening salvo of hope in the fight to reclaim the Beautiful Game or just another blank being fired?

 

The Panorama documentary “Football’s Dirty Secrets” was much billed in the national press as the exposé that would lift the lid on a can of worms that is Premiership football and precipitate a major clean sweep of the top division with some top-level casualties along the way.

 

While it was alarming to realize just how ingrained the tradition of managers seeking to cream off a percentage of a transfer fee is now, thanks to the connivance of unscrupulous Data Sgp agents, what was revealed really ought not to surprise us one jot.

 

After all, Arsenal’s George Graham was forced to resign back in 1995 after it was revealed he had profited to the tune of £425,000 from transfer dealings involving a bent Norwegian player representative called Rune Hauge.

 

Fast forward eleven years and we are still dealing with exactly the same issue; in this case Bolton Wanderers’ boss Sam Allardyce accused of pocketing pounds on transfer fees with his son as the broker [Allardyce has claimed he is “utterly innocent” of any wrong-doing and is planning to sue the BBC].

 

Harry Redknapp, the alleged prince of bungs, had expected to be shot to pieces by the Panorama programme and had issued a pre-emptive statement in the press, but he need not have worried as his involvement in the documentary was limited to expressing interest in signing a player under contract elsewhere.

 

Alas, the latest exposé of wrongdoing will fail to clean up the game unless powers from beyond football intervene to enforce the law. Football has shown itself to be spectacularly incapable of policing itself so many times before and has operated more like a private betting syndicate in the back of a pub than an open and above board …

Lung cancer kills Bobby Judi Slot Robson

 

 

 

Universally popular soccer coach Bobby Robson died on Friday from lung cancer he had been suffering from for a long time. Robson was the last coach to lead England to a World Cup semifinals in 1990, and on a club level he achieved even greater results while coaching Ipswich Town, Porto or Barcelona. Robson used to be a great player in his own right, an offensive midfielder who scored plenty of goals for Fulham and West Bromwich Albion, collecting 20 caps for England. Before leading his country to the last eight in Mexico and last four in Italy, he headed a sensational Ipswich Town to an FA Cup in 1978 and UEFA Judi Slot Cup 1981, narrowly missing out on the English championships. After coaching England, he successfully worked in PSV Eindhoven, Sporting, Porto and Barcelona, returning to his homeland for a final stint with Newcastle. His last job was as an advisor for the national team of Ireland, which he held until he was diagnosed with his fifth carcinoma in 16 years. The one that ultimately proved fatal.

 

Jacko is alive (and stays at Wolfsburg)

 

Bosnian international Edin Dzeko (pronounced: Jacko) put an end to long speculations regarding his playing destination extending his contract with German champs Wolfsburg until 2013. The sensational goal scorer was linked with several clubs including Milan, and in fact pressured the directors to release him, but the Wolves held firm and proud before the Italian big guns. So Dzeko changed the tune and said, “I’m very happy we agreed terms before the season begins. Now I can concentrate on the Bundesliga and the Champions League.” Dzeko and the Brazilian Grafite were the most successful attacking tandem in the European soccer last season and in fact one of the highest scoring in the past 15 years, since the heyday of Andy Cole and Peter Beardsley at Newcastle. Having notched 26 Bundesliga goals in Wolfsbnrg’s championship winning campaign, Dzeko also scored 10 goals in 17 games for Bosnia.
