Big clubs in crisis: Man United, Chelsea, Barcelona and AC Milan – what went wrong early on?

big-club-crisis

With almost the first two months rolling over since the beginning of the new season, WhaleBets team is looking into Europe’s elite’s championships and is analyzing big clubs having troubles early on. The sight of a big-spending club or club enjoyed great successes fail gives every neutral observer sense of intrigue and is always selling the papers, but not if you are a fan of this particular club in crisis. Of course, the level of calling a season “unsuccessful” or “a failure” it’s always been variable from different people’s point of perspective

1. Manchester United

  • English Premier League
  • Current ranking: 8th place
  • Current league form:

Man United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s honeymoon period lasted just a few months at the end of the last season, and now the Norwegian is under some heavy criticism. Yes, he brought different approach after a turbulent reign of Jose Mourinho. The transfer window was disappointing as the rumours surrounding key players like Paul Pogba, David De Gea and others did no favours to the Ed Woodward and co. Transfers of Maguire and Wan-Bissaka addressed some issues in the defence. Having said that the sales of Sanchez, Lukaku and not renewing Herera’s contract and didn’t replacing them, left United to bare bones and being forced to rely on youngsters like Greenwood, Chang, Pereira, Daniel James and others. This is not mandatory to be a bad thing, but considering the competitiveness of the Premier League and the big ask to break into Top 4, it will be interesting to be seen whether the Carrington’s most exquisite starlets will fill the big boots of previous golden Red Devils’ generations. Surely, Ole will have plenty of time and backing from the board, but some fans raise their concern from the club top management and owners and whether they went into mediocrity after Sir Alex’s retirement.

2. Chelsea

  • English Premier League
  • Current ranking: 11th place
  • Current league form:

Chelsea

Frank Lampard came home, the Blues won the Europa League with Maurizio Sarri and qualified for the UEFA Champions League, but the beginning of the new era at the Bridge is certainly starting not up to a Top 4 standards. Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham along with other Chelsea youngsters are given a chance for a first-team run. Transfer embargo is certainly causing trouble to Roman Abramovich and his side, but the positive being players who are either frozen or sent on loan are now part of the first-team setup. 2 wins in the first 6 PL matches, combined with a disappointing collapse at home in the

Champions League against Valencia certainly left the fans scratching their heads thinking if Lampard made a considerable step managing club under big expectations. The young English manager enjoyed successful spell at Derby in the Championship previously, but now being at the helm where he made his name as a footballer, maybe the jump was too big even for the ambitious Frank. Only the season unfolding will tell.

3. Barcelona

  • Spanish La Liga
  • Current ranking: 6th place
  • Current league form:

Barcelona

The Catalan giants will be gunning for all trophies as usual but having conceded two losses in the first six matches of the new season is a worrying sigh. Many would say that the problems start with Leo Messi’s being injured, but maybe this is giving us a perspective of what will happen when the Argentinian legend eventually retires. If you are a Barca fan and laugh at such statement, look the damage of Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit on Real Madrid last season, and you will see why there is a reason to be concerned. After all, taking away 50+ goals a season can seriously damage your club’s ambitions. The likes of De Jong, Dembele, Griezmann and teen sensation Ansu Fati would have to settle pretty quickly on all fronts, as Barca always going for all tournaments involved. The UEFA Champions League group is a tricky one with Dortmund and Inter Milan, so the Catalans must fire all wheels and must do it quickly.

4. AC Milan

  • Italian Serie A
  • Current ranking: 13th place
  • Current league form:

AC Milan

The Milan giant is finding themselves in a tough start of the season. This combined with an impressive transfer summer for bitter rivals Juventus and Inter, usual solid performances from Napoli, Roma and Lazio and you can imagine that the Rossoneri is finding themselves down the pecking order not only for Top 4 finish but for European qualification spot as well. Marco Giampaolo joined from Sampdoria in the summer, bringing much needed Serie A experience. Milan was one of the teams under heavy criticism for breaking the Financial Fair Play. The Milano side even sacrificed their place in the UEFA Europa League to be in a much more favourable position this year. This gamble is yet to pay off, but as the first few rounds of the league suggest, AC Milan’s fans are in for a very long and hard drive this term. New signings like the Luka Jovic,Theo Hernandez and Rafael Leao have a big task in their hands in forcing the Rossoneri up the table. Could this be finally Milan’s season or the downfall of once one of the greats football clubs in Europe continues in full swing?

  5. Napoli v Liverpool, Dortmund v Barcelona, PSG v Real Madrid – and that is just in the first 2 days of the group stage!

  6. Ajax – the young Dutch side won our hearts last season, could they make another serious run after losing some of their star players during the summer?

    14 VAR

  15. New kick-off time in group stages – following the success of the 2 TV slots made in the UEFA Europa League, the most riches competition is having 2 TV slots meaning only one thing – more football can be watched.

1. Arsenal

The Gunners turbulent summer have taken a few twist and turns, a dreadful end of the last season and UEFA Europa League final heartache – just a few topics which the Arsenal era got after the retirement of Arsene Wenger. Club captain Laurent Koscielny is on the verge of leaving the club, Aaron Ramsey left on a free, but there were some reasons to be optimistic after the highly-rated acquisitions of Nicolas Pepe and Dani Ceballos. Unai Emery has a big task on his hands to make sure the Gunners return to the UEFA Champions League, after three successive seasons outside the Top 4.

2. Aston Villa

The Villans returned to the Premier League after 2 years of absence, and the Play-off win against Derby County confirmed that one of the most successful English clubs returned where they belong. You can argue whether they were taking the right approach after making at least 12 signings and reshaped their promotion squad. Fulham did that last term, and we all know what happened. Jack Grealish and John McGinn were the keys, and they both remained at the club, so if the manager Smith wants to establish the Midlands club at the league, he must build the team around them. Goals from Tammy Abraham will be missed, but new signing from Belgium Wesley Moraes must fire in his debut season.

3. Bournemouth

The Cherries established themselves as a Premier League club having being saved from extinction almost a decade ago when they were fighting for survival in League Two. Eddie Howe did wonders on a limited budget on the South Coast and even was rumoured to be linked higher profile jobs over the past few years. The rise of Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser also saw them linked to bigger clubs, and if they remain at the club, the Vitality Stadium attacking football will continue. Home form is going to be crucial, and if they repeat last year’s performances, the Cherries should comfortably avoid the drop.

4. Brighton

Brighton finished last season so bad that the poor run almost costed their elite status. The Seagulls finished the campaign with ten games without a win, winning just 2 points which cost Chris Hughton’s job. Many questioned the decision to hire Graeme Potter from Swansea. His inexperience, combined with lack of proven goal scorers in the Premier League (albeit Glenn Murray). Maybe the signing of the season could be Brentford striker Neal Maupay, who have taken the Championship by storm during the past few years.

Burnley suffered from Europe hangover after a few early matches in last season’s campaign did harm to the Clarets in the long turn. Sean Dyche’s squad started early on last season and disappointed with their 15th place finish.

6. Chelsea

The main talking point around the Blues from London, of course, was the long-anticipated return of the club legend Frank Lampard who took the helm after a stormy season under the Italian Maurizio Sarri. The fan-favourite made a huge step forward after almost guiding Derby County to the Premier League in his 1st managerial season, but yes, he can benefit from a massive amount of backing from owner Roman Abramovich and the Blues’ faithful. Eden Hazard left for Real Madrid after guiding Chelsea to yet another European success after he masterminded 4-1 final win in the UEFA Europa League against city rivals Arsenal. American wonder kid Christian Pulisic will be a man in the middle, but it’s yet to be seen whether Lampard will give Chelsea youngsters a chance after so many players returned from successful loan spells.

7. Crystal Palace

Roy Hodgson main concern and task during the summer was to convince talismanic forward Wilfried Zaha to stay – a familiar story in South London over the last few years. Their club captain and fan favourite were heavily linked with a transfer to Arsenal, Everton and abroad and it is yet to be seen whether he will remain at Selhurst Park for yet another season. The signing of Gary Cahill from Chelsea will certainly bolster Palace’s defence, and if the Eagles want to cement themselves in the Top 10 and even aim higher, they need to score more and turn their home ground into a fortress.

8. Everton

Everton finished 8th last season without moving any place further or down the table since their previous campaign with Sam Allardyce. The Goodison faithful was firmly against the ex-England manager, but after a series of high-profile signings and new manager, the situation hardly changed. The Blues are doing everything possible to add to their squad and the likes of Cisse from Monaco, Zaha and Doucore will undoubtedly improve the potential of the playing team. The signings of Kean from Juventus and Fabian Delph certainly made the impression that Silva is trying to improve the squad. Breaking in the Top 6 would be the target for the Toffees.

9. Leicester City

Brendan Rodgers enters his first full season in East Midlands, and he has a big task ahead of him. Harry Maguire’s long-awaited transfer to Man United finally materialized, and Leicester must sort out the defensive woes and keeping hold of their lead after disappointing last season. Youri TIelemans’ big-money arrival from Monaco seems one of the transfer gems of the summer after impressive stats for the Belgian midfield maestro during his loan spell at King Power’s last season. Jamie Vardy’s performance up front again should be crucial for the Foxes and the England international yet to recapture his form from the champion-winning season.

10. Liverpool

The Reds enter the season as one of the bookie’s favourites to win the league after missing out last season just by a small margin to Man City. The points earned by the Jurgen Klopp’s side was so impressive that it makes you wonder what can the Merseyside side do ever to win the league. The front trio in Salah, Mane and Firmino will be again crucial, but having in mind that all of them finished the season late on and played in their continental competition, fatigue is on the cards for Jurgen Klopp and his players. This was confirmed in some disappointing results during the pre-season, but can Liverpool start the new season on a high and establish themselves as pace-setters in the league it’s yet to be seen.

11. Man City

Pep Guardiola is quickly becoming a City favourite after winning back to back Premier League titles and winning domestic Cup trophies for fun. Just to think that City managed to record 98 points last term and played unreal football makes them a firm favourite even without a ball been even kicked. Rodri joined for a significant amount from Atletico Madrid and will be added to the variety of talent Guardiola has at his disposal currently – De Bruyne, Silva, Bernardo Silva, Fernandinho are to name a few. Vincent Kompany returned to his homeland, and it will be interesting to see how will City replace his presence on and off the pitch.

12. Man United

The English Premier League most successful club in terms of league titles has tough times repeating Sir Alex Ferguson’s good times after David Moyes, Van Gaal, Ryan Giggs, Jose Mourinho and now Solskjaer been in charge. The uncertainty of the future of key players like Pogba, De Gea and Lukaku certainly didn’t please the ever-demanding United’s fan base. Harry Maguire and Wan-Bissaka added to the defensive ranks, and now it’s up to be seen whether United will have changes in the attacking front. Jose Mourinho often argued with the Man United hierarchy over lack of backing in the transfer market, but now the situation looks like been changed. Hopefully, for United, the acquisition of world’s most expensive defender will ease the 54 conceded goals last season. Will Dybala join and who will lead the attack – one thing is sure, United’s season is going to be pretty exciting

13. Newcastle

Anger in Tyneside reached new highs after the departure of Raffa Benitez who was idolized by the fans. Club owner and club board didn’t convince with the appointment of Steve Bruce either, knowing that he was 11th choice for the manager. Takeover talks didn’t help either as potential new buyers are nowhere to be seen so the problems off the field will undoubtedly impact the Magpies performances. Arrivals of Joelinton for a club-record fee of 40 million and Allan Saint-Maximin from Nice will undoubtedly raise a few eyebrows, but it’s there to be seen whether Bruce can work wonders with limited resources as Benitez did

Daniel Farke, ex-assistant to Jurgen Klopp, had transformed the Canaries to a more attractive looking side compared to when the East Anglian club was last in the elite. The Canaries scored 93 goals in 46 matches so Teemu Pukki and co will undoubtedly be one of the sides to watch this season. The mixture of European talent and young academy graduate makes the Yellows an exciting party. The first trip to Anfield, friendly Place to start, huh?

15. Sheffield United

Chris Wilder is a miracle worker and the Sheffield-born and bred manager must be knighted in terms of his successes for Sheffield United. Well, at least in the red part of the Steel City. The Blades did the unthinkable climbing up the Football League, and the core of the squad is the same as the one won promotion in League 1. Sheffield United managed to avoid Play-Offs and beat the odds by surpassing Leeds, Villa and many other teams with bigger budgets from the Championship. Now they are facing the even more difficult task in trying to compete against bigger monsters, and Bramall Lane certainly will not be a comfortable place to go to.

16. Southampton

Stability is maybe the keyword for Southampton and its fans. They flirted with the relegation during the past few seasons, but this is not reflecting on the quality, and the potential Saints are having at their disposal. Gone are the days of outgoing transfers of key players to bigger clubs now with the level set by the likes of Virgil, Mane, Wanayama, being hard to recapture. Che Adams is an exciting young prospect from Birmingham City, who will compete for a starting place with Charlie Austin, Shay Long, Danny Inggs and others.

17. Tottenham

Plenty of things to be excited about around the Spurs currently – reached UEFA Champions League Final, moved to a new stadium, making some transfers (finally!), Pochettino is staying for the time being etc. etc. If we add plenty of stars coming in during the last few days of the transfer window, we are sure that Harry Kane and co. are going to be firing all cylinders this season. If Spurs manage to stay injury-free and not be complacent, why not to think that they can fight for the title against City, Liverpool and the rest.

18. Watford

Watford and the Pozzo family were changing their manager we hardly remember their total number, but Javi Gracia is doing a remarkable job by setting high standards for him and his team. The Hornets even reached the final of the FA Cup which shows that they’ve enjoyed a fruitful last season. A bad form in the previous 11 games of the season during which they’ve focused on the Cup run saw them drop outside of the Top 10. Will Hughes, Doucoure and Capoue can dictate each game from the midfield, so the Hornets are going to be exciting to be watched next season too.

19. West Ham

West Ham would want to avoid the start they had last season and disappointing results made by Pellegrini and his players. The Hammers improved throughout the season and finished in the Top 5 within reach of the European qualification. The additions of Fornals and Haller on a record deal from Eintracht Frankfurt certainly add to the real potential at disposal with the likes of Felipe Anderson, Declan Rice and the rest. The London Stadium is about to witness an entertaining season, but could the Hammers brake into Top 6 and aim for the even greater season.

20. Wolves

Nuno Espirito Santo would want to ensure that the last season’s heroics were no a fluke and the Midlands club is a power to be reckoned. Wolves have taken the league by storm after winning promotion the season before. Wolves main strength is in midfield where Neves and Moutinho you could argue that they could walk into any midfield of the league. The permanent signing of the Mexican striker Raul Jimenez is crucial to Wanderers in terms of scoring goals, so sit back and enjoy some European football and hard campaign at home, Wolves’ fans!

The best betting strategies for pros

The best betting strategies for pros

The growth of the internet has led to a massive boom in the popularity of betting on sports over the past few years.

Following expert sport betting tips can be a great way to make a profit, but there are also numerous other strategies worth considering. Identifying which ones to use can be a tricky task, with many systems promising big returns but often failing to deliver.

However, there are some strategies which have been proven to work, although each of them requires a strict level of discipline. Read on as we look at some of the best betting strategies for pros.

The Martingale system

Initially made famous as a casino betting strategy, the Martingale system has successfully crossed over into the sports betting world.

It is a progressive betting system that requires you to double your stake after any losing bet and to keep repeating this until you back a winner. To make it work you must always back at odds of Evens or better to ensure that you eventually secure a profit.

For instance, you could use the Martingale system to back one soccer team to draw their game each week. As the odds for drawn matches are generally 2/1 or higher, you are guaranteed a winning return if you stick rigidly to the system.

You could start by placing a £10 on your chosen team to draw a game. Assuming odds of 2/1, if they draw you would receive £30, but if the game has a winner you would double your bet on the team’s next match.

Staking £20 on that game would potentially return £60 if it ends as a draw – giving you a £30 profit at that stage.

The mathematics behind the system return a profit at whichever point a draw comes in, although you may need a significant bankroll to cover the eventuality that a team doesn’t draw for a few weeks. However, if you can maintain your discipline and your bankroll can withstand a few repeated hits, the Martingale is a strategy that can move your gambling to pro level.

Managing your bankroll

All pro bettors understand the importance of managing their bankroll properly and never deviating from their system.

Betting to a low percentage of your budget might seem boring, but adopting a conservative approach will help you handle the periods where you find winners hard to come by.

All pro gamblers set an amount that they are prepared to lose within a particular timeframe. This is generally per month, but can also be weekly or over the course of a season.

Keeping your stakes to a low percentage of your bankroll, say 5%, would ensure that you are never risking too much of your cash at any given time. For a £1,000 bankroll your stake would be £50 if you chose to risk 5% per wager.

By sticking to the system, and never chasing losses, you will be able to safely navigate the many peaks and troughs toy will be faced with in sports betting.

A level staking plan on single matches gives you the best chance of taking advantage of your knowledge of your chosen sport and boosting your bankroll over time.

Extracting value from live betting

Consistently backing short-priced favourites might seem like an easy way to make money, but the unpredictability of sport means there is no guarantee this will yield a profit.

However, there are ways to extract more value from ‘banker bets’ to help you boost your winning returns.

For instance, Montreal Canadians are playing at home to Ottawa Senators and are priced at 1/2 to win the match.

A £100 bet would return £150 if Montreal are successful, but could you have obtained better value by waiting for the game to develop?

Montreal won 25 out of 41 matches at home in 2018/19, yet there were periods where they would not have been in front in those games.

Waiting for the odds to lengthen as play progresses is an easy way to boost your returns, particularly when you are backing a high winning percentage team like Montreal.

The returns can be even greater if your chosen team goes a goal behind, and many pro punters choose this moment to bet big on the favourite.

Choosing the right opportunity to strike is the key to successful live betting and is a strategy well worth using.

Liverpool against Tottenham in a battle for the history in the 2019 UEFA Champions League Final

Liverpool-against-Tottenham

Jurgen Klopp will entertain Mauricio Pochettino in the UEFA Champions League Final where their teams will want to put a trophy to the great looking they both started at Liverpool and Tottenham respectively. Both managers are currently major ones not only in England but in whole European football and a major trophy like the UEFA Champions League will cement them in the folklore of the game. This will be second consecutive final for the Reds and they will certainly would like to avoid the heartache suffered in Kiev last year. Spurs on other hands are writing their own history as this is their first European final appearance since 1984 where they lifted the UEFA Cup. So in an emotional Madrid evening who should be victorious – Mo Salah or Harry Kane? Klopp or Pochettino? The Reds from Anfield or the Spurs from White Hart Lane?

In the second all-English UEFA Champions League final, after both finalist did the unthinkable in their second leg matches against Ajax and Barcelona. Tottenham lost the first leg against the young and impressive Dutch side, only to overturn the tie in the second game in Amsterdam thanks to a Lucas Moura second half hattrick. The Brazilian was in lethal form and after shaking their recent injuries, Son and Harry Kane could provide selection headache for their manager Mauricio Pochettino. The English talisman striker Kane trained with the rest of the squad earlier this week so he will be definitely on the plane to Madrid, whether he will feature since the first minute – it remains to be seen.

Liverpool on other hand missed the long-awaited English Premier League trophy this season only losing with 1 point to Manchester City, but the spirit shown in the history second leg against Barcelona will be remembered for a long time. The likes of Wijnaldum, Origi and Alexander-Arnold became unlikely heroes in the absence of the most dangerous attacking threats – Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

UEFA Europa League Final – the London clash in Baku!

uefa-europa-league-final

After yet another great season of drama, goals galore, come backs and plenty of splendid football, it all came down to a single match. The UEFA Europa League final in Baku is going to be between the London giants Chelsea and Arsenal. English clubs dominated in Europe this season and after both clubs booked their trip to Azerbaijan all eyes were to see who will win the trophy. Unai Emery has a lot of history with the tournament in his Seville days, but can Maurizio Sarri make a parting shot at Chelsea by winning the trophy and then leave to return to Italy?

Meet the teams

CHELSEA (ENG)

  • UEFA club ranking: 12
  • UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League finals: 2
  • Previous final appearance: 2013, 2-1 v Benfica

This season

  • Entry: group stage
  • P14 W11 D3 L0 F32 A9
  • Top scorer: Olivier Giroud (10)
  • Current league position: 4th

Possible first-choice XI:

Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Christensen, David Luiz, Alonso; Kovačić, Jorginho, Barkley; Pedro, Giroud, Hazard

Route to the final

  • Qualified: 5th in Premier League
  • Group L winners
  • Round of 32: 5-1 agg v Malmö
  • Round of 16: 8-0 agg v Dynamo Kyiv
  • Quarter-finals: 5-3 agg v Slavia Praha
  • Semi-finals: 2-2agg v Frankfurt (won 4-3 on pens)

ARSENAL (ENG)

  • UEFA club ranking: 9
  • UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League finals: 2
  • Previous final appearance: 2000, 0-0 v Galatasaray (lost 1-4 on pens)

This season

  • Entry: group stage
  • P14 W11 D1 L2 F29 A9
  • Top scorer: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (8)
  • Current league position: 5th

Possible first-choice XI:

Čech; Kolasinač, Koscielny, Papastathopoulos, Mustafi, Maitland-Niles; Xhaka, Torreira; Aubameyang, Özil; Lacazette

Route to the final

  • Qualified: 6th in Premier League
  • Group E winners
  • Round of 32: 3-1 agg v BATE Borisov
  • Round of 16: 4-3 agg v Rennes
  • Quarter-finals: 3-0 agg v Napoli
  • Semi-finals: 7-3 agg v Valencia

One of the highlights of the final will be that legendary keeper Petr Cech will play his final match in his career against his former team Chelsea. But should Emery trust the retiring keeper or Bernd Leno should retain his #1 spot? It remains to be seen, but from a neutral point of view and from a moral point of view – the keeper deserve one final shot. The team is eager to win the cup for the sake of their teammate Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who was forbidden to travel to Baku due to diplomatic reasons. This fueled anger by both sets of fans in addition to high prices of match tickets, distance from London and many more. Many fans asked the right reasons behind choosing the final venue.

Chelsea on another hand must ignore all the talk for the summer revolt – manager leaving, transfer embargo, Eden Hazard leaving and many more gloom coming in the papers. Club captain Cesar Azpilicueta insisted that he and his team are focused and hungry for success. The Blues were in similar situation in 2013 where they won the cup against Benfica. Back then Raffa Benitez was just interim manager and never won the Blues fans on his back. After winning the UEFA Europa League, the Spaniard left the club. It is now to be seen whether Sarri will go back to Seria A and join either Juventus or Roma.

Venue

Baku is the capital of Azerbaijan and it’s the lowest-lying capital city in the world – 28 metres below sea level. The capital is the biggest city in the Caucasus region. The Baku Olympic Stadium is nearly 70 000 seated and opened in February 2015.
