    Dissertation Questionnaire - Gambling Accessibilty

    Evening guys I'm writing my dissertation and conducting research about gambling accessibility and advertising. If any of you (in the UK) bet and have a couple of minutes to spare to fill this out, or could share it with anyone relevant I would really appreciate it. All responses are fully...

    Man Utd v Reading VAR IT WORKS !

    I was under the impression that the role of the AVAR was just to watch the live action while the VAR is conducting the review and to communicate to broadcasters, rather than have any input into decision making?

    World Cup Tips

    Same here re the booking points, will be intrigued to see what the general stance will be with the cards. VAR is always helpful in picking up a stray red to bring the bet in...

    world cup appointments

    None have been released yet. The referees briefing is being live streamed at 5 today so I’d imagine we’ll find out at least who has the opener. They never tend to get released until a couple of days before the games.

    Palmers FC Referees

    The next start time is so much better... Happily wake up early, and can see it being happily watched in lectures Having watched the majority of it I don't think there are any fundamental flaws. A few soft dismissals (Bairstow X2, Ali and Cook in the 2nd innings) kind of killed us, they don't...

    Hit the sack at 5:30 this morning. Still woke up at 9. Not even a sleep pattern, just no sleep at all To take the positives from yesterday's performance, at least there's no need to stay up tonight?
