Bratt Decor Chelsea Crib – Are Lifetime Cribs All They're Cracked Up To Be?

Have you seen cribs like the Bratt Decor Chelsea Lifetime Crib? This baby bed is fairly amazing.

It is astonishingly beautiful to look at and that's only the beginning. As a "lifetime" crib, it is designed to do just that – grow into a full-sized bed as your child grows – meaning that you won't ever need to buy another bed for your child.

Ever.

Interesting idea, to be sure. But lifetime beds do come with a substantial cost attached and that's the real key to this idea. Are they worth their price tag?

Let's look at the concept of lifetime cribs from the eye of a parent. I've raised four children and have seen plenty of beds come and go through our home. Here are some things you'll want to consider – both pro and con – before jumping on Bratt cribs' – or any other manufacturer's – lifetime baby bed bandwagon.

The good news first.

– Yes, lifetime cribs make good sense. They're high on the value scale. First a baby bed and then, with a full-size mattress and box springs addition, a complete adult bed.

– If you concentrate on quality when shopping, you'll be happier down the road. Trust me, this is a bed that will need to take abuse for many years.

Chances are high your child (and her friends) will jump on, kick, dance and dramatically throw themselves on this bed. So it goes without saying that it needs to be sturdy. Check for quality and look for other parents' comments on the durability of the bed you choose. Bratt Decor, for example, has a reputation of building quality baby cribs; This is something you can check out easily enough by visiting some parenting forums and asking questions.

– Are you planning on having more than one baby? Then a drop-dead beautiful and sturdy lifetime crib can make a lot of sense because you'll be needing a crib over and over.

– As I mentioned before, this particular brand of baby crib is gorgeous and frankly, I'm sure that's a huge selling point for this company. Some lifetime cribs come in plainer versions which may appeal more to you and may bring the price point down, as well.

Remember that a bed usually is the largest piece of furniture in a bedroom, which means you will want one you enjoy looking at for years. Such a consideration is a smart choice for both your eyes and your pocketbook.

And the bad news?

– Cost. Lifetime cribs often cost more than their counterparts and that's no surprise. After all, you're getting more bed. But be careful because the quality of baby cribs varies widely.

Go to a store where you can actually put your hands on these cribs and give them a shake (do make sure the demo cribs are completely assembled first for an accurate test). Sometimes the lower cost versions are quite wiggly; you can tell they are not going to stand up to much usage.

On the other hand, you can pay the equivalent of a cheap used car for some lifetime cribs. If you actually use that crib for the next eighteen plus years and never have to refinish or replace it, you may have just got yourself a deal.

– Let's be clear here; the crib is lifetime. The mattress is not. You will have to buy the mattress and box springs to convert these cribs into full-sized beds. But you'd have to purchase mattresses no matter what bed route you choose, so that cost is a wash in this discussion. Still, you need to keep it in mind.

– Some folks love heirloom furniture. Some like to redecorate on a shoestring every few years. A lifetime baby bed like the Bratt Decor Chelsea crib is for the former folks. If you are in the latter camp, then having a gorgeous bed that you are sick and tired of is definitely a point against this type of purchase.

When you add it all up, lifetime cribs make a lot of practical sense. Whether or not you decide to go with an upscale model like the Bratt Decor Chelsea Lifetime crib or a simpler baby bed really depends upon how much quality you want to pay for and if it will make you happy to be passing this crib onto your grandchildren some day.

Betfred – A Review of Their Unique Bets and Free Bet Deposit Bonus

The world of betting has changed massively in recent times, long gone are the days when if you wanted to have a bet you had to go into a dark, smoke-filled local bookmaker where everyone stared at you as you walked in if you weren’t a regular.

Betfred, who have been around for nearly 50 years since being founded by Fred Done, have certainly adapted to the changing betting market to meet expectations of an ever more demanding customer base. Their shops are now state-of-the-art with the latest widescreen betting terminals, wall-to-wall television screens showing all the day’s sports and racing, friendly and helpful shop staff and a clean comfortable environment in which to have a bet.

Impressively Betfred are one of the market leaders in the highly competitive on-line betting marketplace, this is not an easy thing to achieve but they have done so by keeping in the public eye via TV advertising, a strong high-street presence, sponsorship of major events as well as being the Wembley Stadium official betting partner for England and other football association games staged at the venue. They also sponsor major horse racing events at Haydock and Kempton Park racecourses, and to appeal to a wider spectrum they sponsor dog racing at Nottingham an Owlerton Greyhound stadiums.

Betfred hit the headlines due to some of Fred Done’s more outrageous betting decisions which certainly haven’t always been correct, especially when it comes to his beloved Manchester United. Infamously they have twice incorrectly paid out early on Manchester United winning the Premiership title only for them to lose it to Arsenal and Manchester City respectively in the final games of the season. Very expensive mistakes but it proves even the bookmakers are prone to going with their hearts instead of their heads when it comes to bets.

The main thing that sets Betfred apart from it’s competitors and keeps customers going back is the unique extra value bets they continuously create, a couple of which you can see below:

• Goals Galore is unique to Betfred and is brilliant in its simplicity, where you can win big with as little as a £1 stake. The concept is easy; you pick football matches in which you think both teams will score and if you choose correctly you win. You have to pick a minimum of three games (odds 7/2) but can choose up to a maximum of fifteen games (huge odds of 1,500/1). Regardless of the final result of the matches selected, as long as both teams have scored in each game you win. If you want to take the bet a bit more seriously and increase your chances do some research on home, away and goal scoring form on one of the many soccer stats websites out there.

• Double Delight & Hat-trick Heaven is another Betfred exclusive and also offers great value. The rules of the bet are simple; select a game and then pick who you think will be the first goal-scorer and if they score you win. Normally this would be the end of your bet but it is not enough for Betfred! If your choice of goal-scorer then goes on to score a second goal your odds will be doubled. But that’s still not it – if they then go on to score a third you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to guess that, amazingly, the odds will be trebled!

Apart from the exclusive bets above, for new customers Betfred are offering a £50 free bet by matching first deposits. You can find more details on how to qualify for these free bets below.

UEFA Champions League Group Stages Final Games Review

The UEFA Champions League reached the final stages of the Group round this week with the just the final group positions to be decided.  Which teams would make up the final 16 and move on to the dramatic knock stages of the competition, which will resume in February next year?  Which teams would top their groups and therefore potential gain an easier draw? Other issues to be decided were which further 8 teams would earn the consolation of a ticket into the UEFA Cup and which remaining 8 teams would finish bottom and say good-bye to all European football this season.

We start our review the answers to these questions on Tuesday night and with the battle to top Group D.  The spoils finally went to Liverpool who climbed above Atletico Madrid. Liverpool fielded a slightly under strength side against PSV Eindhoven, resting captain Steven Gerrard and with striker Fernando Torres still not fully fit.  Yet the former Champions still managed an impressive 3 – 1 away win despite going a goal down.  PSV on the other hand are one of the eight teams that are now totally eliminated from European after finishing bottom of the group.

The opening goal from PSV was scored by Danko Lazovic goal which came from a corner that should never have been given.  The ball clearly touched a PSV player last only for the Russian linesman, standing a matter of yards away, to award a corner to the total disbelief of everyone.  The decision totally incensed Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez, and he was subsequently spoken to by the referee.  

Fortunately for Liverpool, the goal did not have a lasting bearing on the game.  Ryan Babel brought the score to 1 – 1 with a header in first half injury time.  Then in the second half, Liverpool’s Spanish winger Albert Riera, scored with an absolutely brilliant strike from 25 yards.  The 5 times champions were in total control and  youngster David Ngog sealed the win, with his first senior goal for the club. That all meant that Atletico Madrid had to, at least equal, or better Liverpool’s result to finish top of the group.  Unfortunately, they could manage a 0-0 draw away to Marseille.  The draw was sufficient for Marseille to claim third position and with it a place in the UEFA Cup.

GROUP D FINAL POSITIONS

1 Liverpool 14 pts

2 Atletico Madrid 12 pts

3 Marseille 4 pts

4 PSV 3 pts

In Group A it was the Italian team Roma who finally claimed the number one position beating French side Borbeaux 2-0.  As a result the French side finished bottom of the group and were knocked out of Europe altogether.  It was Roma’s Brighi who slotted in a low cross from Perrotta that broke the deadlock just after the hour mark.  Then Francesco Totti fired in from the edge of the box to secure the win and top spot.

Meanwhile, Chelsea welcomed back their Ivorian striker Didier Drogba, albeit only as a substitute.  Even though they won their game 2- 1, thanks to Drogba’s winning goal, overall Chelsea didn’t look too convincing against the unfancied Rumanian side Cluj.  

Scolari’s Chelsea did need to win to secure their passage to the last 16 and it was left to the talismanic Drogba to come off the bench and seal the win with an excellent finish. This win for the Blues means both Spain and England will have four teams in the last 16 of The Champions League.  This is the first time two nations have achieved the feat in the same season. 

GROUP A FINAL POSITIONS

1 Roma 12 pts

2 Chelsea 11 pts

3 Bordeaux 7 pts

4 CFR Cluj 4 pts

In Group B there was a slightly surprising finishing position for Inter Milan and manager Jose Mourinho.  They had to settle for second place behind the Greek side Panathinaikos.  The Greeks beat the Cypriot side Anorthosis Famagusta 1 – 0 whilst German’s Werder Bremen beat Inter Milan 2-1.  The result securing Bremen with a place in the UEFA Cup.

It was a dull and dreary first half in Germany but Claudio Pizarro put Bremen ahead then Markus Rosenberg made it 2-0.  Inter did pull a goal back through Zlatan Ibrahimovic who started the game on the bench.  He curled in a fantastic 25-yard shot but it turned out to be nothing more than a consolation.  The result meant Werder Bremen held on to seal a place in the Uefa Cup.

The Cypriot side Anorthosis Famagusta, who have surprised me a little in this season’s competition, their first, actually  came into this final game against Panathinaikos with a chance of progressing to the last 16.   Unfortunately, they couldn’t live up to the huge expectation and didn’t even make it through to the UEFA Cup due to Bremen’s win.

GROUP B FINAL POSITIONS

1 Panathinaikos 10 pts

2 Inter Milan 8 pts

3 Werder Bremen 7 pts

4 Anorthosis 6 pts

The final standings in Group C had already been finalised before kick off on Tuesday evening. It was therefore no great surprise that, in front of a rather empty Camp Nou, first-placed Barcelona fielded a somewhat weakened side.  The decision saw Barca lose their 20-match unbeaten run by losing 2 – 3 to Shakhtar Donetsk, who end up in the UEFA Cup. 

Swiss team Basle ended a miserable European campaign with a solitary point after they were defeated 1-0 at Sporting Lisbon. Sporting, who won thanks to Yannick Djalo’s first-half goal, finished second in the group behind Barcelona on 12 points.

GROUP C FINAL POSITIONS

1 Barcelona 13 pts

2 Sporting Lisbon 12 pts

3 Shakhtar Donetsk 9 pts

4 Basle 1 pt

On Wednesday evening, Group E saw Manchester United, rather surprisingly, held to a 2-2 draw by Aalborg at Old Trafford.  However, it didn’t stop the current champions from finishing top of their group as Celtic managed secure their first victory in this season’s competition by beating Villareal 2 – 0 at Park Head.

Utd’s Argentine striker Carlos Tevez opened the scoring after just three minutes and Aalborg must have feared the worst but to their credit, they equalised when Michael Jakobsen headed home. Even better was to come however as Jeppe Curth’s header right on the stroke of half-time gave Aalborg, what can only be described as a shock lead.  It was England striker Wayne Rooney who saved Man Utd’s blushes when he produced a trademark powerful finish.

Villarreal had of course been hoping against the odds that Man United would somehow slip up against Aalberg so they could finish top of the group, however they failed to deliver their end of the bargain losing their game as Gordon Strachan’s Celtic finally produced a win in this season’s campaign.  Unfortunately, the win was too little to late for the Glasgow side who are now out of Europe altogether.  No disrespect to Aalberg but I wouldn’t have put any money on them finishing anywhere else other than bottom of the group when the draw was made back in the summer.

GROUP E FINAL POSITIONS

1 Man Utd 10 pts

2 Villarreal 9 pts

3 Aalborg 6 pts

4 Celtic 5 pts

The German giants Bayern Munich finished Group F in first place after a good 3-2 away win at French champions Lyon.  The result means Lyon had to content with finishing second.

German forward Miroslav Klose put Bayern in front before Luca Toni set up Ribery for their second.  Ribery then turned provider for Klose as Lyon fell apart.  Lyon fought back though with Govou pulling a goal back Karim Benzema added a second.  But they could draw level and Bayern clung onto their victory. In the group’s other game Alberto Gilardino headed in the only goal to give Fiorentina victory over Steaua Bucharest and with it a place in the Uefa Cup.  Steaua on the other hand finished the group rock bottom ending their campaign with a solitary point.

Gilardino headed into the far right side of the net after a corner from Juan Manuel Vargas before Steaua were reduced to 10 men when Pawel Golanski was sent off in the 72nd minute for a second yellow card.

GROUP F FINAL POSITIONS

1Bayern Munich 14 pts

2 Lyon 11 pts

3 Fiorentina 6 pts

4 Steaua Bucharest 1 pt

It was a bad night for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal as they failed to achieve the draw they needed to see them finish top of their group.  Wenger, as he quite often does, sent out a young side but they offered little resistance and were outplayed by Porto, who went on to win the game 2-0 and with it leapfrogged over the Gunners to top the group.

Porto’s goals come from Bruno Alves who headed the 2004 champions into the lead before Lisandro Lopez doubled the lead with a cool finish. In the group’s other game, Roman Eremenko scored a first-half goal that gave Dynamo Kiev a 1-0 win over Turkish side Fenerbahce and with it saw them claim the last remaining place in the Uefa Cup.

The midfielder collected Artem Milevskiy’s reverse pass from the left and struck a precise left-footed shot that went between the legs of the goalkeeper.

GROUP G FINAL POSITIONS

1 Porto 12 pts

2 Arsenal 11 pts

3 Dynamo Kiev 8 pts

4 Fenerbahce 2 pts

The final 16 teams have been decided for this season’s UEFA Champions League.  The draw for the knock out stages takes place on the 19th December and they way the group standings have panned out, it is bound to throw up some really intriguing ties to look forward to.

Chelsea Set to Dominate European Football

There is a new heavyweight force in European football, they are being bankrolled seemingly by the Russian economy, they mean business, and their name is Chelsea FC Chelsea Football Club have always been a decent club in the second strata of English clubs. In London alone Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have invariably been ahead of the Chelsea Blues, even West Ham have often put Chelsea in the shade. But no longer, for in the season 2004-2005, Chelsea won the English Premier League title for the first time in fifty years, their only previous winning season.

But they haven't stopped there, in the new season 2005-2006 they are already well clear in the title race leaving all their rivals gasping, and now they have set their sights on the pinnacle of all the club trophys, the European Champions League . Chelsea have never won the Champions League, indeed no London club ever has. And it is clear that their charismatic manager Jose Mourinho is intent on winning the Champions League again, he did so with his previous club Porto, of Portugal.

So what of the traditional English giants? Manchester United, often described as the world's richest football club, have fallen into the hands of the Glazer family of Tampa Bay fame, but they reportedly needed to borrow half a billion pounds to buy United, a debt the club now shoulders. Spending on new players has so far been thin on the ground and United's brusque Glaswegian manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, has admitted that United, for so long England's most successful club, cannot compete with Chelsea when it comes to buying players. The hordes of United fans are not amused, the natives are growing restless.

Arsenal, London's biggest and most successful club, lost their skipper and driving force Patrick Vieira last summer, he moved to Juventus in Italy for £ 12 million pounds and with their star striker Thierry Henry suffering fitness problems, they picked up some uncharacteristic defeats at unfashionable clubs like West Bromwich Albion and Middlesbrough. This is their last season at their famous old Highbury Stadium before they move to their new purpose built Emirates stadium almost next door. The increased capacity of 60,000 will undoubtedly give their French manager Arsene Wenger more money to spend next year, but of course they have to pay for that new ground too. Far from challenging Chelsea again, it would seem that Arsenal are more likely to fall further behind.

That leaves Liverpool and Newcastle. News comes through just today that the American Kraft Company and family are interested in investing in Liverpool FC, perhaps even buying the club outright just like Manchester United fifty miles up the road, but that is some way down the line. And they too are seeking to build a brand new stadium on Stanley Park and of course that all costs big money. Despite last year freakish win in the Champion's League, Liverpool's league form this season has again been patchy, and that included a 4-1 walloping by Chelsea on their own Anfield pitch. The idea that Liverpool might challenge Chelsea for the title remains a far-fetched one. Newcastle, England's second best supported club are gradually improving, and they have signed England's center forward Michael Owen, but they still remain unconvincing at the top level. They haven't won the title since Noah was seen building his ark, or so it seems, and they aren't going to do so this season either.

So though it is very popular for foreign investors to snap up the leading English (and Scottish) football clubs, it appears that only Roman Abramovich at Chelsea has the financial muscle to buy the best players around. He is the only one to put unlimited funds on the table. Top class players now command a transfer fee of £ 40 million each and whereas Manchester United might afford one of them a season, Chelsea's purse seems bottomless. They have already spent £ 220 + million and are still in the market to buy again when the transfer window re-opens in January.

They have already achieved success by winning at home, now the European Champion's League is the Holy Grail for them, a trophy they are now the outright favorites to win with the odds layers. And astonishingly they have achieved their success to date with an array of strikers who haven't really cut the mustard. Mutu the Romanian, was promptly sacked for drug taking, Crespo the Argentinian, was sent out to Milan on loan last season, and though he is back now he is hardly setting the world afire, or even playing that often, Gudjohnson an Icelander, plays more often than not, the muscular Drogba from the Ivory Coast, seems to have finally claimed the number nine shirt as his own, yet many blues followers still remain unconvinced about him, so it would seem likely that Chelsea may yet be looking for another proven goal scorer come January, especially after a recent rare defeat at Manchester United.

It would take a brave man to back against Chelsea in any competition at the moment. But if you'd like to, you can still have a free $ 30 dollar bet at Betfair.com by entering the code 6CHE3VPWJ when prompted. But one thing is for sure; no one would be surprised if this time next year the Premier League trophy AND the Champions League trophy were both on display in the Chelsea boardroom. It seems that only the Italian giants Milan and Juventus, and the Spanish top two, Real Madrid, and most especially Barcelona with their Brazilian superstar, surely soon to be the world player of the year, Ronaldinho, might stop the London blues. It really does seem as if we have entered a new era in European and world football, or if you prefer the ridiculous name that no one ever uses, Soccer. Chelsea fans have never had it so good while everyone else is left gasping in their wake, for it is a fact that Chelsea Football Club have raised the bar for everyone else to follow. Time will tell if anyone can.

Replica Football Shirts – A Potted History

A replica football shirt is defined as an (official) copy of a kit. In the UK it is a huge business. According to a BBC report from August 1999 about price fixing in the replica shirt market, it was then worth £210m – I’ve not found anything more recent apart from a report by a German company Sport+Markt (www.sportundmarkt.de) which found that at Summer 2008, the top 116 teams in Europe earned 615m euro from marketing. Quite what ‘marketing’ includes alongside replica shirts isn’t stated (I only looked at the free summary of the report), however it’s interesting to note that the report also states that English fans spend the most (an average of 65 euro each per annum) and that Nike and Adidas account for 80% of the total number of replica football shirts manufactured. The recent take-overs by Adidas of Reebok and then by Nike of Umbro should further serve to underline just what a huge market it is.

Of course it wasn’t ever so. In the good old days any old red shirt could indicate that you were a Liverpool or a United fan. A dark blue would indicate either Everton or Chelsea. There were only certain teams which deviated – Arsenal had those white sleeves and Blackburn Rovers played in their blue and white halved shirts. But then things began to change. At Coventry City, Jimmy Hill realised the kit was something more than just a uniform to wear on the pitch and he introduced the first ever kit of just one colour (other than white) as they changed from their hitherto mostly dark blue shirts with white shorts to a kit of all sky-blue. Bill Shankly only adopted all red for his Liverpool side in 1966-66 – 3 years after Coventry’s all sky-blue affair.

Moving into the 1970’s Leeds United, who’d changed from their traditional colours of blue and gold to all white in the early 1960’s, were the first club to offer their fans the chance to buy replica kits in 1975 as part of their deal with kit supplier Admiral. When Don Revie left Leeds to take over as England Manager the national team entered into a similar arrangement with Admiral. Things really took off when Liverpool became the first club to wear a sponsor’s name on their shirts following their 1979 deal with Japanese electronics manufacturer Hitachi. Here’s a list of prominent English clubs and their first identifiable kit manufacturer and sponsor:

Arsenal

Umbro (1978/79)

1981/82 (JVC)

England

Admiral (1974/75)

n/a

Leeds

Umbro (Aug – Dec 1973) then Admiral

1981/82 (RFW)

Liverpool

Umbro (1973/74)

1979/80 (Hitachi)

Man Utd

Umbro from 1955

1982/83 (Sharp)

Newcastle Utd

Bukta (1974/75)

1980/81 (Scottish & Newcastle)

The purchase of a replica football shirt nowadays represents no small investment for the average fan. Of that 65 euros spent on average by an English football fan on merchandising, a fair chunk is devoted to that all important replica shirt. Whether there’s a better way of supporting your team of course is a moot point – in fact it always (well since 1975) has been.

Wilmslow, Cheshire – Facts About the Town

The town of Wilmslow, Cheshire is located in Cheshire in England. Visitors can get to the town by driving in the southern direction from the city of Manchester. The town lies between Handforth and Alderley Edge. According to a census taken in 2001, the town has a population of over 30,000 people.

Wilmslow is close to the town of Alderley. Just like Alderley, the town of Wilmslow is known for its high-class lifestyle and posh houses.

Wilmslow is a town for the rich and famous. Visitors to the town will see high-class facilities that consist of designer shops, cafes, and restaurants. The ‘Cheshire lifestyle’ is typical. You will find multi-millinonaires, celebrities, English Premier League players, WAGs and wealthy businessmen in the area.

The town is very expensive and is one of the most famous places in London.

The town of Wilmslow is linked to the Anglo-Saxon era. The name is derived from the Anglo-Saxon name ‘wighelmes hlaw’ that stands for ‘mound of a man called Wighelm’.

Archaeologists have found remains dating to the Iron Age. Remains by the name of Lindow Man were discovered in Lindow Moss. The remains had been preserved for over 2000 years in a peat bog. The discovery of Lindow Man is one of the major finds in the archaeological history of the country. The remains have been re-located to the British Museum where they are displayed under the Iron Age Exhibition. In April 2008, Lindow Man was re-located to the Manchester Museum for the annual exhibition.

In March 1997, Wilmslow was the centre of media attention, when a bomb exploded near the railway station. The IRA was implicated in the bombing. As a precaution, residents near the railway station were moved to a safer area at the leisure centre.

Famous landmarks in Wilmslow include the Church of England. The Church of England has three churches, namely, St.Johns, St.Annes and St Bartholomew.St.Bartholemew is the oldest of the three churches, having been built in the 16th century. A turret bell tower was added to the church in the 19th century.

The Top 10 Football Teams in London

There is much to see for those who are interested in football in London. Just to clarify for any readers of this article from outside the UK, football means the ‘beautiful game’, what is commonly referred to as Soccer around the world.

London has a proud tradition of famous football teams with much competition between them to be the top club. There are generally four or five London teams in the Premier League and there are many commentators who believe that this is one of the biggest obstacles to any one of them winning the league. A ‘local derby’ between two London football teams could produce an electric atmosphere and turn current form on its head they are so well contested.

Premier League tickets are sometimes difficult to obtain, but a bit of persistence often gets results. There are a number of ticket agencies that can get them for a price.

In the last decade, both Arsenal and Chelsea have each won the illustrious Premier League title twice and reached the final of the European Cup.

Talisman Hazard, Back Where He Belongs

For Eden Hazard, the first season at Chelsea was supposed to be difficult, given the Premier League’s immense physical demands and his modest stature at 5’8″. Hazard though announced himself in a respectable way with 13 goals in the season. The next season got him 17 goals plus the PFA Young Player of the Year award. The season after, he scored another 19 and won the PFA player of the Year award. Both seasons he was unanimously voted Chelsea’s Player of the Year.

Three seasons with the West London outfit, and Hazard was a superstar. His dribbling skills were mesmerizing, his ability to outfox defenders with ease was a treat to watch. He could score at will, his pace was amazing and his set-pieces were brilliant.

Indeed, terminologies like ‘the next Messi’ and ‘a future Ballon d’or’ were heard when referring to Hazard. And while Hazard did find himself crashing on the football turf often, courtesy of some aggressive defending, his form took an abruptly similar turn before long.

Playing the 2015-16 season for the defending champions of the Premier League, Hazard lost possession often, and it looked like his heart was not in the game. He tried switching it up but nothing came of it. His tally of just six goals bore a symbiotic relationship to Chelsea’s own decline over the season as they endured a lowly 10th-place finish. Unfortunately for the Belgian, he bore the brunt of the criticism from the media, former players and pundits.

They said he was a ‘flash in the pan’, ‘weakling’ and ‘overrated’. PSG and Real Madrid generously offered to give him an out. West London was not a happy place.

All that was about to change.

The new season brought in a new manager from Italy Antonio Conte and a new formation that did wonders for Chelsea, and indeed, Hazard.

As part of the tip of the unusual 3-4-3, Hazard found all the boost he needed. With his hunger back, he tore apart opposition defenders, looking stronger and sharper. He was free-scoring once more and his passes and first touches were precise and incisive.

Fuelled by his 14 goals so far presently the West Londoners sit pretty atop the league table with a bit of daylight between them and their nearest opponents. He has definitely shut all the doubters and stormed his way back into elite status. Those Messi comparisons and Ballon d’or statements are back in circulation.

A heck of a turnaround indeed for the Belgian wizard!

Beginners Tips For Online Sportsbooks

Online sportsbooks have defied all odds and become the most preferred betting platforms by most bettors. Their popularity is rising at alarming rates due to their simplicity and the user friendly features they offer. But how can you best benefit from online sportsbooks? Here are some of the tips suitable for both rookies and actively participating sports gamblers alike.

a) Try To Evaluate Common Betting Odds

The best and most secure way to learn online sportsbooks is by following and understanding the possibility of any successful bet to occur. You need to realize that betting lines usually correspond to the $50 mark. In cases where the figure is negative, then the bettor is obliged to bet a specific number of times to win the $50. For instance, whenever a betting line is -200, then it is mandatory that you gamble $200 to secure a $50 gain. But what if the betting line is positive? (e.g. +150). Here the rule states that you will gain a $150 profit for every $50 you bet. It simply means that you can make $50 extra if the betting line is positive instead of negative.

Also, if the betting is positive, there is always a guarantee that the bet is returned to the bettor collectively combined with the interest made. For example, if the betting line was +180, you are always assured of making a $230 profit which comes together with the $50.

It is necessary to know that we have used the $50 example as a betting line in this context but it can be any figure.

b) What Online Sportsbooks Are You Familiar With?

You can participate in any online sportsbook as long as you know the betting odds. There are three commonly recognized types of sports bets, which include the moneyline, the total and finally the side.

A «moneyline» bet is the easiest and fastest online bet type. It doesn’t involve many attributes; it is simply a bet made on who will be the winner between the opponents. Bettors can give any stake which normally doubles if the team the person supports wins.

Another common online sports bet is the «side.» The side is usually used by the betting liners to find the equilibrium between the two gambling sides. This is a complicated type of bet but is widely used by US gamblers. For instance, if the lines maker decides that Arsenal leads Manchester United by 15 points and you decide to support Arsenal -15, then you are likely to obtain the odds of -65. This is only if Arsenal beats Manchester United by 15 points. But the condition is reversed if Arsenal gets less than 15 points. In this case Manchester United is declared the winner. Lastly, in the case of a draw, all the bets are returned to the gamblers. This is called a «push.»

The «total» is also another popular online sports bet. But how is it played? It is a bet that determines the overall points summed up from both parties in any sporting event. The lines maker may decide to set a specific point total such as 30. If one decides to bet less than that mark, this is called «under,» otherwise it is called a «push» for any bet above the 30 point mark. A draw bet is also called a «push,» which directly implies money should be returned to the bettors. However, it is not easy to bet a draw and as such the lines maker normally creates a betting line where it is possible to find the winner.

With these tips about online sportsbooks, I think you can eventually rise up and become an expert sports bettor.
