Pragmatic Gambling with msnTV

msnTV, also called interactive TV or WebTV, allows people to surf the Net on their television. A small receiver is hooked up to a dial-up Internet connection and transmits the incoming signal to the television. It’s been around for a while now, and is popular with people who don’t want a computer or can’t figure out how to turn one on.

You can do a fair bit with msnTV, but unfortunately you can’t play at a lot of online casinos because the msnTV receivers aren’t able save a casino software package like a regular computer. That means msnTV gamblers have to play no-download games. Big deal, you say. There are plenty of no-download casinos out there, right? Well, sort of.

In addition to the whole download issue, msnTV is unable to handle the Java applications that run many no-download casino games. Microsoft, which purchased WebTV in 1997 and changed the name to msnTV, has been saying since 1999 that it plans to make the service Java-compatible, but very little has happened since that time. That leaves you with no-download Shockwave Flash or HTML games, and there are far fewer of these casinos at the moment.

Most sites offer either download games or no-download games but not both because of the development costs associated with what amounts to building a second casino. Some no-download sites offer HTML and / or Java games, but the HTML graphics and game quality are usually pretty rudimentary and as mentioned, Java is out for msnTV users. Because of all that, Flash games are about the only viable option for online wagering if you’re surfing with msnTV.

Microgaming offers one of the leading Flash Pragmatic casino packages, and about half of Microgaming’s licensees have no-download Flash games. The selection of games isn’t as extensive as in the download version, but the quality is good, you can play for real money, transactions are secure, and you can play the progressive jackpots. That makes selected Microgaming licensees, such as RiverBelle Online Casino and 7 Sultans Casino, a good starting point for msnTV-compatible casinos; other casinos that offer Flash …

George’s QQ Online Pkv Premiership Predictions

Leicester City are just a win away from lifting their first ever Premier League title and they could do it in style when they visit Manchester United on Sunday.

Tottenham’s home draw with WBA on Monday night after the Tigers had thrashed Swansea at the weekend means that Leicester are now in poll position.

United are hardly easy prey as they are still in the chase for a top four finish as they strive to overtake Manchester City or Arsenal to confirm Champions League football next season.

Liverpool face Southampton away in an intriguing fixture while at the bottom there are crunch games for Newcastle at home to QQ Online Pkv Cup finalists Crystal Palace (surely a home win with the Eagles’ eyes on Wembley) and Sunderland at Stoke. Norwich play Arsenal away and will be hoping that some of the home support’s disillusion with Arsene Wenger’s management affects the home team – a factor Wenger says has cost his time the title.

Arsenal 1/4 Not To Win Premier League Until At Least 2020

Arsenal fans may vent their frustration at the weekend as another year goes by without a Premier League challenge, worsened season by the prospect of Spurs finishing above them for the first time since 1995.

It doesn’t look like getting any better any time soon for Gunners fans with bet365 quoting 1/4 about them not winning the league until at least 2020.

Arsene Wenger’s side are 1/14 for their usual Top 4 finish and 11/4 to finish the latest round of fixtures as the highest scorers in the Premier League.

Seoul Back Down To Earth Before Toto Hk Gamba Game

 

 

South Korea’s two best teams had nights to remember in the opening round of Asian Champions League and face very different tests on matchday two this week. FC Seoul and Suwon Samsung Bluewings have also had mixed fortunes in the fledgling K-League season so far.

 

Seoul’s early season form got the headline writers in Korea far too excited. The capital club did impress by winning the first game at Chunnam Dragons by six goals to one. No K-League team scored six in the whole of 2008. Here was Seoul doing it on the first afternoon of the season.

 

Then coach Senol Gunes took his team to deepest Toto Hk Sumatra to play Sriwijaya of Palembang on Tuesday in the Asian club competition. In front of a passionate local crowd and temperatures a good deal higher than those left behind, the Koreans won 4-2. In truth the game was a little easier than the scoreline suggests. Only at 3-0 and with the end in sight did Seoul’s concentration waver.

 

Ten goals in two game led to headlines that were premature even by Gwanghwamun’s standards. “Gunes’ magic” went some and others were equally complimentary. The coach was quick to say that there was still a long way to go.

 

The last time he was lauded so early in the season was in 2007. Just after his arrival he led Seoul to three successive wins at the start of the season. Finally, the media said, here is a foreigner who can make a difference. Seoul then scored just one goal in the next nine matches.

 

If Gunes wasn’t keeping feet on the ground before last weekend, he is now. New K-League team Gangwon FC shocked the host by winning 2-1 on Saturday in a very chilly Seoul World Cup Stadium. The late goal caused scenes of unbridled joy among the orange-clad followers of the eastern club and also put the team on top of the league.

 

Gunes may be regretting his decision not to start with stars such as Ki Sung-yung, Lee Chung-yung, Kim Chi-woo …

FC Seoul Are Out And Judi Online Deposit Pulsa Senol Gunes Is Off

 

 

With the benefit of hindsight it was written in the stars that FC Seoul’s season would end last Saturday after losing to Chunnam Dragons in the first round of the K-league’s championship play-offs.

 

Seoul thought they shouldn’t have needed to play Judi Online Deposit Pulsa the match at all. The capital club spent the whole season slugging it out with Jeonbuk Motors at the top of the K-League and expected to go straight to the final, or at least, the semi-final.

 

That all changed on the last day of the season as Seoul conceded a last-minute goal at home to Chunnam Dragons. That 1-1 tie saw Seoul slip into third. That finish meant Seoul had to negotiate the entire play-off series.

 

As luck would have it, the first play-off opponent was Chunnam. And Chunnam was the last. For Seoul, it is very much a case of what might have been. For much of the season, the red-and-blacks looked the likeliest champion but when the push came to the shove, the team didn’t quite have the indefinable quality that champions need – the ability to dig in and fight for everything.

 

The game again finished 1-1 after 90 minutes. Seoul’s penalty area was the least crowded place in the whole city after 12 minutes and Chunnam striker Lee Gyu-ro took advantage to fire a fierce shot low into the home net. Three minutes later however, Seoul drew level. A delightfully measured slide-rule pass from Ki Sung-yong gave Jung Jo-gook an easy chance from close range.

 

The excitement didn’t last and the game drifted towards penalties. Two Seoul players missed the target completely – Kim Sung-yung and, dismally, Lee Jong-min. Ki Sung-yong saw his kick well-saved. It was the last action for Ki in the Seoul shirt. He has already signed for Scottish giants Celtic in a $4 million deal and heads to Glasgow at the end of the year.

 

Kwak Tae-whi scored the winning penalty. The international defender has spent much of the season battling injury but was fresh as a daisy as …

With the World Cup exposing a number of ageing European teams in need of new blood, a glimpse of the immediate future can be seen at the 2010 UEFA U-19 Championship, taking place in France at the moment.

 

Reigning champions Ukraine, who hosted the 2009 edition, failed to qualify, but hosts France have stormed into the last four, trouncing the Pengeluaran HK Netherlands 4-1 and Austria 5-0. Joining them from group A are England, who beat Austria 3-2, drew 1-1 with France and lost 0-1 to the Dutch.

 

Although the French are the tournament’s highest scorers, top of the points charts are surprise, surprise, Spain, the only unbeaten team. The Spanish U19s defeated Croatia and Portugal 2-1 before a comfortable 3-0 dismissal of Italy.

 

Top of the goal charts with three strikes are Liverpool’s Spanish prodigy Daniel Pacheco and Croatian midfielder Zvonko Pamic, who plays for Freiburg in Germany.

Dutch Double Does For Korea Bandar Poker Online

 

 

National anthems Korea-Holland in Seoul

Games against the Netherlands are often ones to remember and last Saturday night in Seoul was no different for hosts South Korea.

 

The game was arranged to mark the five-year anniversary of the start of the 2002 World Cup, which was of course, hosted by Korea and Japan.

 

The Netherlands didn’t even qualify for that competition while South Korea, coached by Guus Hiddink and assistant Pim Verbeek, reached the semi-finals.

 

Dutch coach Marco van Basten

 

Despite that non-appearance, Holland are still part of the footballing elite and were expected to defeat the Asians. They did just that with a 2-0 victory. The Dutch may have been without the likes of Clarence Seedorf, Arjen Van Robben and Edwin van der Sar but the squad that traveled east was still a skilful one.

 

Korea were missing their Premier League quarter of Park Ji-sung, Lee Young-pyo (sitting in the commentary box instead), Seol Ki-hyeon and Lee Dong-gook. The strength in depth of the Taeguk Warriors doesn’t, unfortunately, match that of the Europeans.

 

Lee Young-pyo in an unfamiliar pose

 

Rafael van der Vaart got a goal in each half, the first a penalty, to silence the home fans. The second came with 18 minutes remaining and Korea’s subsequent lack of fight and energy annoyed their Dutch coach Pim Verbeek who launched a scathing attack on the administrators of the K-League.

 

“I can’t believe the K-League organized a cup semi-final three days before a national team game,” said Verbeek after the game.

 

“If that’s how they want to treat the national Bandar Poker Online team then we need to have serious discussions. It is stupid, disrespectful and bad for Korean football.”

 

“It’s the first time in my life that I have seen a Korean team lose so much energy at the end of the game. They have played 22 games in less than three months. The players were tired and after it became 2-0, they were finished.”

 

Verbeek was not finished there and when asked why he …

The Bubble Dominoqq Boy

 

 

Even a betting genius can occasionally have a bad week. After receiving an ultimatum from the wife, “It’s either betting or me.” I immediately had a lumpy bet on Chelsea to beat Betis. To make matters even worse, the threat turned out to be very much like the wife; idle.

 

Sir Alex Ferguson has also had a week he’d rather forget. On a Dominoqq disastrous trip to the Riverside, United found themselves 3-0 down at half-time. Fergie turned the hair-dryer up to full blast, but the players were just as wet in the 2nd half.

 

Two days later, a Roy Keane interview severely criticised Rio, Fletcher, Miller, O’Shea, Richardson and Alan Smith, he obviously forgot about Paul Scholes.

 

With team morale shattered, a midweek defeat in the Champions League was almost inevitable. The Manchester United era of domination is officially over thanks to Mr Keane’s tirade, the bubble has well and truly burst, and all it took was one prick. Chelsea are a confident pick at 5/4 to add to Fergie’s week of woe.

 

Jose Mourinho used the word ‘voyeur’ to describe Arsene Wenger this week, which is somewhat unfair; I don’t think anybody has derived any real pleasure from watching Chelsea this season.

 

The smile can return to Wenger’s face this weekend when they take on Sunderland; Arsenal’s reserves won 3-0 at the Stadium of Light in the Carling Cup, imagine what the first-team will do at Highbury.

 

Charlton are the only team in England with a 100% record on the road, but that stat will come under threat at Ewood Park. Blackburn are a team in Mark Hughes’ image, last week he received a red card for kicking a bag, in all fairness, we’ve all been there.

 

Craig Bellamy has scored three goals in three games since he returned from injury, the wild Rovers are extremely backable at 5/4.

 

Alan Shearer came off the bench to score against the Albion last time out; (He’s not the first footballer to be dropped by Graeme Souness.) the Geordie legend has …

Korean Coach’s World Cup Thoughts on Data Sgp

 

 

 

 

After two spells as “number three”, Afshin Ghotbi has returned for a third term in South Korea. This time however, he is the second-in-command behind new head coach Pim Verbeek.

 

The faces may be familiar but the situation is not. There is no longer a World Cup on the horizon but rather a chance to build a team from scratch, to lay the foundations of a healthy national set-up.

 

That future may be starting right now with qualification for the 2007 Asian Cup and upcoming games with Iran and Taiwan to think about but the recent World Cup, Ghotbi’s second with Korea and third overall, is still fresh in everyone’s minds. The resident of Southern California was in the thick of the action during those three intense games against Togo, France and Switzerland that ultimately ended with the Taeguk Warriors narrowly failing to progress to the second round.

 

The 42 year-old remembers the events of Germany well.” We set a goal of four or five points which we thought was achievable… When you look at it objectively and take all your Data Sgp emotions out of it, we showed well. But you can’t go to a World Cup into a tough group and concede a goal in each first half of the three games and expect to get out of the group.”

 

A win against Togo in the opening game was an historic first in an overseas World Cup though some parts of the Korean press, and the neutral spectators in Frankfurt, weren’t impressed with the way the team chose to defend its narrow 2-1 lead against the ten-man African team – spending the last minutes of the game choosing to keep the ball rather than attack.

 

Ghotbi is unrepentant and insists all the staff would do the same again. “Togo was dangerous from the beginning to the end in attack. We had to get three points from that game. Korea had never won a game in a World Cup abroad. Psychologically, those three points were so important.”

 

The team …

Bandar Togel Online

When winning Bandar Togel Online isn’t enough.

 

 

The past week has bought victories for Australia’s senior side as well as its under-23s who booked a berth at next year’s Beijing Olympics on Wednesday with a hard-fought 1-1 draw in North Korea. The Young Socceroos, the country’s under-20s team, also won three out of four AFC qualifying matches to guarantee a spot in the 2008 Asian Youth Championships earlier this month.

 

But the heavy shadow darkening Australia’s dreams of reaching the 2010 World Cup refuses to lift.

 

Australia’s search for Guus Hiddink’s long-term replacement has been rather like watching an English League One relegation scrap. Lots of running through mud chasing endless lost causes only for your star striker to miss a stoppage time penalty with seconds remaining.

 

This week, after a year-and-a-half’s worth of wild goose chases around the major European cities, Dick Advocaat reneged on his agreement to coach the Socceroos.

 

Depending on who you believe, a written Bandar Togel Online contract to take charge of Australia from February’s World Cup qualifiers onwards either was or wasn’t broken by Advocaat’s decision to agree a yearlong extension with Russian champions Zenit St Petersburg. Tellingly, though, the Russians are expecting a financial backlash.

 

“Yes, he will remain here in St Petersburg,” Zenit director Konstantin Sarsania told the Reuters news agency. “The only matter left to resolve is the compensation package to the Australians but we have our lawyers on the case.”

 

The verbal backlash has already started. More than once since deceitful Dick’s dastardly U-turn, Football Federation Australia has been likened to a jilted lover in the nation’s media.

 

Under the headline ‘Advocaat turns the stomach’, Sydney-based football writer Tom Smithies went further in penning this diatribe: “In Holland they drink the liqueur advocaat as a digestif, which is highly ironic because the contempt that a coach of the same name has shown for Australia has turned the stomachs of even those inured to the opportunism of top-level football”.

 

Strangely, the Advocaat affair might actually be one of the few football stories which unites the rival codes in …
