Casinos in Newcastle - Best UK Live Casinos

Top 5 Best Cities in the UK?

My list (only based on cities I've actually been to!)
1) London
2) Liverpool
3) Sheffield
4) Nottingham
5) Birmingham or Milton Keynes
So every January and June - me and two mates go to a city in the UK that atleast two of us haven't been too before - however becuase we've been stuck inside for so long due to COVID we're gonna go out more next year.
We're quite young so we like the tall building, busy city London type of vibe - good food, open spaces, nightlife etc and was wondering your recommendations.
London - nothings going to beat it, feels like literally the whole world in one place - dwarfs everything else by comparison, after not going there for around 5 years or more I went back last year for winter wonderland and fell in love with the place again - haven't been clubbing there though, feels too crazy a place to do it.
Liverpool - Amazing city, was there for 2 days and it exceeded expectations - the accent isn't great but the place is quite gorgeous - part of me loved the centres open designs and part of me found it underwhelming - the shopping is meh but everything else is great, it feels massive and busy and the street food is exceptional - will definitely be returning if just for that - also the clubbings underrated, never hear Liverpool brought up but it was great - apart from when we had to walk all the way back to the apartment then to the club again becuase apparently the shoes I had on are worn by druggies in the area.
Sheffield - Sheffield surprised me alot - went to see a hockey game (or a footy game I can hardly remember) what I do remember is how surprisingly modern it feels - meadowhall is huge which is nice, the shoppings just ok though - could've put a Selfridges or something there - I much prefer bullring and MK's centre.
Nottingham - I moved from London to Nottingham around 2 years ago and I really like it, sitting in market Square and just chatting with mates while the tram goes past is great, it has that city feel and is one of the more varied cities in terms of food, shops etc just a shame that the better shops aren't inside the shopping centre which severely lacks imo - it's an old place that feels young. Known for its clubbing it dosent disappoint - I don't think I've ever seen so much clubs in one place.
Birmingham - the first time I came to Birmingham was a college trip about 3 years ago and I was in awe of the place, I thought it was gorgeous and huge. My gf is in Birmingham so I've been there alot since and that effect has almost completely worn off.
Bullring/grand Central is still great - shops are great, layouts great - no issues there, plenty of big shiny buildings and the food is exquisite - the restaurants, the fast food, shisha lounges - all of that is great and there's some really nice areas..but man, is the city dirty and kind of ugly sometimes to - jewellery quatre is a nice area but that's the only one I can think of, not to mention the amount of rats there is staggering. Really 60/40 with Brum - the nightlife was good though, really fun vibe.
Milton Keynes - never been clubbing here or really seen the living areas but the shopping centre is still my favourite, it feels modern, Xscape used to be more fun when I was a kid before the bowling alley and arcade became a casino but there's still the snowdome and other things - I'm a bit bias becuase I used to come here with my mum alot as a kid and the place was always just magical to me whereas London was too big for me to understand what was going on - we never turn down a chance to go.
Possible visits :
I've heard Manchester's the second best to London - heard nothing but good things all of a sudden by people so thats next on the list for sure.
Heard Leeds is great - really fun atmosphere and great food.
Newcastles always referred to as the undisputed king of UK nightlife - I'm not really into drinking anymore but I love the electric you dunno what's gonna happen feel in the air on a night out so that's on the plans to.
Edinburgh - at some point next year we're planning a road trip to either Edinburgh or either lake or peak district - lake District has the best pub food btw, went when I was like 12 and never forgot the place.

Newcastle Upon Tyne, Newcastle University Drop-Out, Collaborated With Blockchain Giants to Bring Online Gambling on a Decentralized Platform

Newcastle Upon Tyne, Newcastle University Drop-Out, Collaborated With Blockchain Giants to Bring Online Gambling on a Decentralized Platform
Global,Newcastle University drop-out withdrew from his course in January 2014 to explore different industries and sectors worldwide. After facing trust issues in different business sectors, experiencing massive depths and losses. He indulged with blockchain technology and researched the colossal potential of decentralized applications. His inspiration was his mentor, Mr.Graham Morgan, at Newcastle University and another technology-based entity, BLOCKCHAIN. Amber Kumar, who was pursuing Msc in computer game engineering, experienced an epiphany about the ongoing healthcare, travel, gambling, and financeindustry's major problem.
Knowing the benefit of blockchain technology and how effective it is for the world, a system way too autonomous and decentralized maintains transparency in records, be it transactional, asset, identity, as needed.
When asked to justify blockchain's transparency- He said, "It gives assured control over data and privacy as it makes use of smart contracts that are not prone to human interference, thus preventing cybercrime, hacking, password leaks, and data thefts."
2014, the year when he started researching blockchain technology and eventually formed WSCF Global.
Next, his profound thoughts led to the amalgamation of blockchain and online gaming resulting in Supraorbs.
'The secret of getting ahead is getting started' (Mark Twain). Indeed Amber is on his way to growth and success, for he took his journey with blockchain technology ahead. WSCF Global, with the collaboration of US partners and Russian partners (who have 12 years of experience in the finance industry), boosted the cryptocurrency market. DHF (Decentralized Hedge Fund) was the product of their collaboration, giving its users an average of 10% per month. It is an independent platform that is run by AI programmed for financial management and growth. It has produced 132.42% cumulative profit this year.
Supraobs is a decentralized cryptocurrency asset investment platform combined with online casino games for the most-efficient financial growth on the Ethereum decentralized financial DeFi ecosystem. The DeFi model helps to exclude the role of mediator.
Supraorbs is an Ethereum DeFi ecosystem that helps players to own their data and investment. It Will help players deposit their cryptocurrency to gain ORBT, and with its access, players can be engaged in online gambling experiences and withdraw their winning amount anytime.
Supraorbs is powered by blockchain technology, AI, and casino gamification, providing users the advantage of earning an average maximum interest rate by just investing in these decentralized platforms. For the upliftment and financial growth of the homeless, needy, and poor people, many opportunities are lingering. It is an online gambling solution for UK and US gambling users. Statistics have revealed that online gambling is a booming sector within the EU, with gross gaming revenue(GGR) expected to reach 29.3 billion euros in 2022. Still, it is centralized and is taking people to bankruptcy depths.
Supraorbs will overcome all these blues by producing a transparent and independent ecosystem where users will eventually face victory.
Voila!
Online gambling platform awaits all its worthy users to be a part of it.

About Supraorbs
The fusion of blockchain and online gaming produced Supraorbs. It is a decentralized and autonomous platform. Specially designed for gamers, people who are into betting and casinos. It is a game-changer for casino industries, which will profit the players without risking their essential details. The players have control over their data and thereby maintain the privacy of the records.
Cybercrimes such as frauds, data thefts, hacking, and password leaks are thus prohibited.
Supraorbs uses ORBT tokens that can be exchanged with any cryptocurrency or vice versa. Besides, a gamer can earn huge profits with complete data security and control.
Thus, Supraorbs is the need of the modern digitized society.
About WSCF Global
WSCF Global is a platform where you can find solutions to your problems technically. It is a demand-for-a-digital-world that functions as a decentralized democracy. WSCF is a community that helps businesses to upsurge at a competitive level by providing knowledge of the latest tools and technologies at the best costs. Business growth occurs through one's resources. Harmony and prosperity are the critical factors of WSCF, where authority and control are not centralized. Thus, it connects and links people to maintain transparency for public welfare.
Blockchain Technology provides transparency through a hyperledger that sequentially contains records, be it transactional records, contracts, assets, or identities, and protects people from counterfeit or second-hand products. Data is within the control of the respective consumer. There is no mediator or any fear of hacking and cracking. Helps in tracking the product's shipping by monitoring its location.
With digitization, the market is prone to the risk of forgery and fraud to a great extent, and to eliminate it, one must support a community like WSCF that revolutionizes the world to be a better place to live.

Lockdown restrictions from Wednesday 30th September 2020

The following new restrictions will be in effect in Newcastle, Gateshead, Northumberland, North and South Tyneside, Sunderland and County Durham:
updated Friday 2nd Oct 2020
Mod note: This is a long one, but important nonetheless. Please take a moment to read through it. These are the most relevant restrictions, however you should read them in full here
 

Personal restrictions

Residents of these areas must not
Fixed penalty notices may be issued against those over 18, and in contravention of these regulations, including:
Any person who holds, or is involved with the holding of, an illegal gathering of more than 30 people may be subject to a penalty of £10,000
The following gatherings are permitted

Travel restrictions

You MUST wear a face covering on public transport, in taxis, and in private hire vehicles, in addition to substantially enclosed travel hubs - such as indoor bus stations
You are strongly advised to travel only for essential reasons, such as to or from work or to collect groceries, cleaning or medical supplies.

Business restrictions

Hospitality venues subject to these restrictions include but are not limited to:
 
Expansion of hospitality restrictions Venues must take steps to ensure:
In general, businesses must make sure that customers do not meet indoors with members outside their household or support bubble, that they do not sing in non-household groups, or dance. Businesses must also ensure that loud music is not played, and tables/chairs are appropriately spaced apart. Pontential fines for non-compliance include:
There have been a number of posts circulating on social media disputing the effectiveness of restrictions, as well as disputing the severity of the virus and the possibility of it ever being contained. These are mostly based on pseudo-science and contain factually incorrect information. We strongly advise that you follow these restrictions, and if possible remain entirely indoors without coming into physical contact with others outside of your household. This is obviously not possible for everyone.
Furthermore, a reiteration of current requirements:

Zytronic plc

Disclaimer
I own shares in Zytronic. As always, this is all just my interpretation and could be completely wrong, I'm sharing to hear (preferably constructive) critical feedback from others. Always do your own research.
Business Overview
Zytronic plc are a UK based commercial touch screen manufacturer (think casino machines, ATMs, train ticket machines etc.) with a factory & headquarters just outside Newcastle.
They specialise in 'projected capacitive' touch screens. Their products are considered to be on the high-end of the value curve- they're more expensive but offer a better combination of durability & touch-sensitivity than cheaper alternatives.
Their 2019 turnover was £20.1M (£22.3M 2018), with profit for the year of £2.7M (£3.6M). Their gaming (casinos) segment accounted for 32% of this, whilst the financial sector (ATMs) represented 31%.
From 2005 to 2017, revenues grew fairly steadily from £10.6M to £22.9M, at the same time profits went up 4.5X to £5.4M.
Since 2015, the financial segment has been decreasing from around £10M to £6.2M in 2019. The majority of this decrease has come from their non-touch displays, which now represent around 6% of the segment's revenues. The touch financial segment has also experienced some decline, but a lot less extreme and 2019 was up slightly on the previous year. They don't have high hopes for the financial segment as the requirement for ATMs decreases with the uptake in card payments.
The declining financial segment revenues were more than offset from 2015-2017 by the gaming sector experiencing rapid growth. However, in 2019 this gaming revenue declined 25% due to a major project nearing its end, which looks likely to further decrease as that project winds up.
The nature of the business means that they make the majority of their revenue from long-term projects with a small number of customers. In 2019, around half of their revenue came from the top 3 customers. This evidently lends itself to big swings in revenue and earnings when these projects come to an end without another major project in place to fill the gap.
H1 2020 (ending March 31st) offered little to console shareholders that the business would return to growth. Revenue was £7.4M, down 22% on H1 2019, and profit before tax was down to £0.5M from £1.4M. This decline was further driven by their largest gaming project finishing, but also by declines in their two other largest segments of financial and vending, so it was bad news on multiple fronts.
The silver lining is that the business had started to turn around its trading in the first 3 months of the 2020 calendar year with order intake for Jan-Mar was 15% up on the previous year and prior to the coronavirus outbreak and the associated global lockdown, they were expecting the second half of the year to drastically improve.
Type of investment
Clearly the above description of the business isn't one of a clear path to increased profits and they could be loss-making very quickly if the business can't convert its opportunities into sales quick enough (which is what it attributes the 2019 underperformance to).
The reason I chose to invest was when looking at the balance sheet and seeing that with the company selling for a market cap of £17M, they had a book value of £23.8M, £12.4M of which is cash. Even if you attribute 0 value to patents & licencing, assume no value appreciation on their properties and take a significant haircut on inventories, receivables, properties & machinery, I still believe the liquidation value offers a slight margin of safety on today's market cap (my calculations said around an 8% margin of safety, but do your own research).
I'm not investing because I think there's a slight profit on the liquidation value. I simply see that as solid downside protection of the business doesn't return to growth (or at least remain stagnant at 2019s levels).
The touch screen industry is very likely to continue growing over the coming years and Zytronic plc appear to have a history of innovation and product improvement.
Whilst I would struggle to put a number on the upside here, if they return to a level of profit whereby they can pay the dividend they have over the last two years, the current share price offers a 21% yield. If the business does anything besides liquidate, I see this as a very undervalued stock.

My Money Making Ideas

Forgive me but I am new to Reddit and social media in general.
Circumstances are such that I am about to hit a major life change. I am being made redundant in April. Do not feel sorry for me as this is something I have planned. For the last few years, I have been making reasonable money with various “side hustles”.
The purpose of this post is to share what I know and to develop my social media presence. I am not expecting to make vast sums of money (at least not yet) and do not expect it to be easy.
I have worked for many years and would like to earn enough in the following areas.
Please note that all referral links posted herein were accurate at time of posting. When clicking the links, I would encourage you to satisfy yourself of the conditions before proceeding.
So here it is…

Gift cards
For the last 3 years, the majority of what I buy is with gift cards. I do buy gift cards in advance, so I am tying money up. This is how you get the biggest savings. I have a number of sources but the main one is eBay.
I bought a new kitchen costing several thousand pounds. I located a website which sold Wickes gift cards for 8% discount. I paid a deposit for the kitchen on my credit card and made several payments on account using gift cards which I topped up regularly through this site.
Anyone can do this and it is relatively straight forward. That said, you do have to be wary of scammers on eBay and the expiry of the various gift cards.

Cashback
Everyone knows about Quidco and Top Cashback. I have used both for several years and have received £’000s over the years. These are brilliant sites for holiday and insurance spend.
Quidco:
Click my referral link and you will get £10 for registration. There is a £5 annual fee but you only pay this, if you earn.
[Ref] https://www.quidco.com/raf/254582
[NonRef] https://www.quidco.com
Top Cashback:
Click my referral link and you will get £5 for registration. There is a £5 annual fee but you only pay this, if you earn.
[Ref] https://www/topcashback.co.uk/ref/sjd210469
[NonRef] https://www/topcashback.co.uk
Complete Savings:
Less known is “Complete Savings” and this has had some bad press. This is where you can earn a lot more and more regularly.
There is a £15 per month fee but this is refundable if you make a cashback claim every month. One of the best retailers on this website is eBay. You get 10% cashback on the majority of eBay spend. From time to time, I do have to send emails regarding the cashback on the gift cards but the majority of times they accept my claim. The payments can be a little erratic but I am getting paid most weeks. They pay a lot quicker than Quidco and Top Cashback but there is a maximum cashback of £250 per month.
I have been maximising this limit for a few years now but do wonder how long this will last. That said, as long as you make a claim every month and do not rely on the cashback, you cannot lose.
Credit cards:
Where I don’t use a gift card, I use a credit card which gives cashback. For example, all of my purchases on eBay are with an American Express Cashback card.
Receive £25 cashback when you apply for the Platinum Cashback Credit Card, are approved and when you first spend over £1 on the card. You will also receive 5% cashback up to £125 for the first three months of card membership.

Matched Betting
Disclaimer: This is not for everyone.
When I first heard about this, I was skeptical by some of the wild claims and I was right. You can make money with this and I won’t go into how this works but it is not 100% risk free.
When the claims of it being 100% risk free, you are relying on two things:

  1. you do not make a mistake; and
  2. the bookie pays out
In the vast majority of bets, the above should not be an issue. If you are not careful, you can back one team and lay the same team but on the wrong event. This is a stupid mistake but one I have made! Also, the odds can move very quickly and you can place the wrong amount.
The latter is rare but some bookies may try to use the “palpable” error as a way of not paying on a winning bet. I have had this, challenged it and have been successful.
The other factor that is often excluded is the fact that you need to cover both sides of the bet. Depending on the back bet amount and the odds, this can be a large amount on the lay side.
There are many offers open to new customers. One example is Stakers. Bet £10 and get £40 in free bets. I placed my £10 back bet on Rochdale v Newcastle (4th Jan) for Rochdale to win at odds of 4.40. At SMarkets, I placed a £9.02 lay bet on Rochdale not to win at odds of 4.90. Regardless of the outcome, I knew I would lose £1.16 but would receive 4 £10 free bets. I then was able to generate £27.73 from the free bets, giving me a profit of £26.57. This could have been more had I sought out better odds but I wanted just to get it done.

There is money to be made here but you need to go in with your eyes open.

Affiliate Marketing and Referrals
I have no experience with this and must admit that I am a little daunted. A bit like Matched Betting, I believe money can be made here but I am still trying to work out what the truth really is.
I will shill some referral links below.
TransferGo (Money Transfer):
Send £50 or more and you will get £10. Not eligible for EUR to EUR transfers.
[Ref] http://trgo.co/en/WPly8G or use WPly8G
[NonRef] https://www.transfergo.com/en
Wealthify (Investing):
Invest £500 or more for at least three months, you will earn a £50 boost to your investment.
[Ref] https://invest.wealthify.com/refe75139985
[NonRef] https://www.wealthify.com/

Retail Arbitrage
I am making a little money on this but as I am working full time, I have limited time to devote to this at the moment.
I am keeping an eye on special offers and am buying items to mainly resell on eBay.
When I have more free time, I will look at expanding this and maybe open an Amazon FBA account.

Print On Demand
Just starting this now. I have a few ideas for designs and am in the process of setting things up. I have no idea what to expect but sometimes the journey itself is the most beneficial.
I will be looking into using Facebook ads and Google to drive traffic. This is another skill that I am going to have to develop.

Selling My Skills
I will probably go self-employed in the future and do similar work to what I do now. I am a Finance Director and have experience in systems implementation. I will probably do contract work which fits with what I want to do.
I may look at creating an Udemy course, provide services on Upwork or even create a You Tube channel. I’m not sure about any of these but maybe I need to do it to challenge myself.

Recycling
This is likely to be more of a hobby than a making money idea. My idea is to obtain scrap coppebrass and smelt into bars, to then resell on eBay. Sounds like fun but not convinced I’m going to make anything significant, if at all.

Ecommerce
This is for 2021 and beyond. I’m looking at creating a Shopify store and drop shipping. I recognise that I do not have enough time, at the moment, to give this the attention it deserves. I believe that once I better understand some of the other areas, I will be in a better position to tackle this.

Other
This covers everything else.
There are many other opportunities that are one-offs.
For example, many years ago I mistakenly deposited into a casino site with a credit card. I do like playing blackjack. On this occasion, I won and withdrew my winnings. When I saw the charges on my credit card, I saw a £3 charge for the deposit but then also noticed a £3 credit for the withdrawal.
I then deposited £50 and immediately withdrew 10 lots of £5. I reviewed the transactions and again was charged £3 for the deposit. However, I received £3 credit for each of the 10 withdrawals. This meant I actually made £27.
Over the next month, I scaled this up and made £’000s before the charges and credits stopped. I did keep this profit to one side. Sometime later, I received a letter from the credit card company stating that there had been an error in their system which had been corrected. They continued by saying that I would not be asked to repay these monies. It was pure chance that I found this opportunity.
Another opportunity I have had which has been connected to my job relates to air miles. Over the last 3 years, I have used my personal credit card to pay company suppliers. This has allowed me to amass a lot of air miles.
I hope this has been helpful to some of you and please bear in mind that I am still new to this. Yes, I wanted to shill some of the referrals but I wanted to try to provide some benefit in return. Any advice on the areas I’m about to embark on would be appreciated.

Zytronic plc investment thesis

Disclaimer
I own shares in Zytronic. As always, this is all just my interpretation and could be completely wrong, I'm sharing to hear (preferably constructive) critical feedback from others. Always do your own research.
Business Overview
Zytronic plc are a UK based commercial touch screen manufacturer (think casino machines, ATMs, train ticket machines etc.) with a factory & headquarters just outside Newcastle.
They specialise in 'projected capacitive' touch screens. Their products are considered to be on the high-end of the value curve- they're more expensive but offer a better combination of durability & touch-sensitivity than cheaper alternatives.
Their 2019 turnover was £20.1M (£22.3M 2018), with profit for the year of £2.7M (£3.6M). Their gaming (casinos) segment accounted for 32% of this, whilst the financial sector (ATMs) represented 31%.
From 2005 to 2017, revenues grew fairly steadily from £10.6M to £22.9M, at the same time profits went up 4.5X to £5.4M.
Since 2015, the financial segment has been decreasing from around £10M to £6.2M in 2019. The majority of this decrease has come from their non-touch displays, which now represent around 6% of the segment's revenues. The touch financial segment has also experienced some decline, but a lot less extreme and 2019 was up slightly on the previous year. They don't have high hopes for the financial segment as the requirement for ATMs decreases with the uptake in card payments.
The declining financial segment revenues were more than offset from 2015-2017 by the gaming sector experiencing rapid growth. However, in 2019 this gaming revenue declined 25% due to a major project nearing its end, which looks likely to further decrease as that project winds up.
The nature of the business means that they make the majority of their revenue from long-term projects with a small number of customers. In 2019, around half of their revenue came from the top 3 customers. This evidently lends itself to big swings in revenue and earnings when these projects come to an end without another major project in place to fill the gap.
H1 2020 (ending March 31st) offered little to console shareholders that the business would return to growth. Revenue was £7.4M, down 22% on H1 2019, and profit before tax was down to £0.5M from £1.4M. This decline was further driven by their largest gaming project finishing, but also by declines in their two other largest segments of financial and vending, so it was bad news on multiple fronts.
The silver lining is that the business had started to turn around its trading in the first 3 months of the 2020 calendar year with order intake for Jan-Mar was 15% up on the previous year and prior to the coronavirus outbreak and the associated global lockdown, they were expecting the second half of the year to drastically improve.
Type of investment
Clearly the above description of the business isn't one of a clear path to increased profits and they could be loss-making very quickly if the business can't convert its opportunities into sales quick enough (which is what it attributes the 2019 underperformance to).
The reason I chose to invest was when looking at the balance sheet and seeing that with the company selling for a market cap of £17M, they had a book value of £23.8M, £12.4M of which is cash. Even if you attribute 0 value to patents & licencing, assume no value appreciation on their properties and take a significant haircut on inventories, receivables, properties & machinery, I still believe the liquidation value offers a slight margin of safety on today's market cap (my calculations said around an 8% margin of safety, but do your own research).
I'm not investing because I think there's a slight profit on the liquidation value. I simply see that as solid downside protection if the business doesn't return to growth (or at least remain stagnant at 2019s levels).
The touch screen industry is very likely to continue growing over the coming years and Zytronic plc appear to have a history of innovation and product improvement.
Whilst I would struggle to put a number on the upside here, if they return to a level of profit whereby they can pay the dividend they have over the last two years, the current share price offers a 21% yield. If the business does anything besides liquidate, I see this as a very undervalued stock.

/r/Championship's Championship club by club season preview - part 1!

Part 2 here - Part 3 here - Part 4 here

On Friday at 8pm UK time, Reading and Derby County will kick off the 127th season of the English second division - also known as the Championship! 24 clubs will compete for 3 promotion spots to the Premier league (2 via automatic promotion and 1 via playoffs) and to avoid the 3 relegation spots to the third tier a.k.a League One.

Its looking like a really tight and competitive season. The league is absolutely full of ambitious player and managerial talent - the more time goes by the more it looks like a Premier League 2. If you want a competitive league with proper English football, that also has the spice of skilful players and forward thinking managers, it really is the place to go.

This is guide written by the fans who have come together on /Championship - an absolutely huge thanks to them. Do check out the sub, we try to keep it a good place to discuss the EFL, away from the rancid gloryhunting shithole that is /soccer (just kidding - I like this place). Lots going on, including a score predictor thread which is running all season.

This guide is in table order with the PL demoted sides first. Only 5 clubs today (because the Swansea one is a fucking novel and I can't fit any more in), the rest will be submitted tomorrow and Friday. Do bare in mind that not all the transfer news will be up to date as these guides were largely written a week ago. Point out to me if there are any clear errors with formatting or spelling.

How to watch in the UK: Live rights are owned by Sky Sports. They are upping the number of televised matches this season. Reading v Derby on Friday is televised. The weekly highlights show previously on Channel 5 is moving to Quest TV, which apparently is on Freeview.
How to watch abroad: Depends, but in most territories, the iFollow Service is available, which is £110 to watch all a single club's matches. Bargain. I think the clubs that aren't on iFollow have their own similar streaming services.
Check out club Youtube channels - quite a few of them post extended highlights now with their own commentary, including Derby, Norwich, Sheffield Wednesday, Brentford and more. (You may need VPN to watch if you're abroad.)

Swansea City by RafiakaMacakaDirk and my_knob_is_gr8

Location: Swansea, Wales
Nickname: Swans, The Jacks
Major honours: Football League Cup (2013), Championship Play-off Winner (2011), League One Winners (1925, 1949, 2008)
17/18 finishing postion: 18th (Premier League)
Transfermarkt squad value: €115.5 mil NOTE: This number is as of July 22nd, when we still have Mawson (€15 mil), A. Ayew (€15 mil), Bony (€10 mil), Clucas (€8 mil) and Fernandez (€8 mil), who are all pretty much expected to be sold, or loaned out, before the season starts. Without all of these players except Bony (who's injured for a while so it makes it unlikely he'll be sold soon), the squad value would be around €70 mil.
Manager: Graham Potter joined the Swans on 11th June 2018. In 2010, he became head coach of Östersund, who were in the fourth tier of Swedish football. 5 years later, he got the club promoted into the Swedish top flight and in 2017, they won Svenska Cupen which qualified them for the Europa League where they managed to get through the group stage. He’s been applauded for what he did at Östersund and the way he managed to build the club up from nothing. The year after his success in the Europa league he signed a 3 year contract with Swansea.
Potter is well respected by The Swans and after a few years of poor managerial and financial decisions his appointment is seen as a step in the right direction to bringing us back to our old ways of being a well-run club. Potter has been recognised for his "progressive" and "unconventional" coaching methods. At Östersund, he encouraged his players and staff to engage in community activities, such as performing in theatre and music productions which was designed to take them out of their comfort zone. Potter describes his style of football on the pitch as "tactically flexible, attacking, and possession-based". At Östersund, he deployed a flexible 3–5–2 formation centred on ball possession.
Best player(s)/ talisman:With many of our best players being rumoured with a move away what good players that remain at the start of the season is yet to be seen.
Alfie Mawson is probably our standout player. He’s been amazing for us since we got him and was a bargain at about £3m. He’s great in the air and is just an all round tank. Keeping him will be a huge boost for us and should be solid in the championship.
Federico "El Pajaro" Fernandez has also been strong at the back with Alfie. The pair played with each other for the majority of last season and together became a solid unit. We will most likely sell him to reduce wages though.
Jordan Ayew put in a great shift last season and was our top goal scorer. His work rate was immense and was able to drop back and defend when needed. He’s fast, able to beat a man and a decent finisher. Sadly all these players are transfer targets for other clubs and might not even be here at the start of the season. If we can keep a lot of our players we should have a decent season but who knows who'll be left by the end of the window…
Rising star: Swansea’s U23 had a great season last year and with Potter wanting a young and fresh squad, a handful have moved up into the first team.
Our standout youngster, Oliver McBurnie, joined Barnsley on loan in January last season where he went on to win a Championship player of the month award after 6 goals in 8 games and went on to win Barnsley’s Player of the year award. While only 22, he’s struggled to break into our first team but will most likely be our main striker for the coming season. Be on the lookout for his long legs, miniature shinpads and ridiculous sock length! LEGS LEGS LEGS!!!
Connor Roberts performed well at RB last season and adapted quickly to the premier league where he battled Kyle Naughton to be in the starting line up and did great when given the chance. Decent at going forward and professional at the back. Hopefully potter puts him ahead of Naughton.
What happened last season?: What Happened last season?: After our great escape the season before and with Paul Clement at the helm there was optimism that the 17/18 season could be our turning point where we start rebuilding 'The Swansea Way". How wrong we were.
After a disastrous transfer window where we sold Sigurdsson and never replaced him and started panic buying the week before the transfer window closed we were left an obvious hole in our team. We had no creativity in midfield and no one could kick the ball into the box to save their life. And just to rub it in further Renato Sanches turned out to be more disappointing than Bob Bradley. With the team sitting bottom of the table Clement was sacked in late December.
Then along came the wise talking Carlos Carvalhal who managed to rebuild the confidence the team had lost. Our results took a turn for the good, beating Liverpool, Arsenal, Burnley and West Ham consecutively at home. He pulled us out of the relegation zone and things were looking good. However, the good times were quickly followed by the bad times. Our form turned and we didn’t win a single one of our last 9 matches. We were quickly relegated after pitifully losing to both Southampton and Stoke in our last 2 games of the season.
Highlights (Or lowlights):
The pass by Renato Sanches that summed up his and our season
Swansea City 3-1 Arsenal
Summer transfer business (so far): At the end of last season, it was clear we needed several transfers, both in and out. However, this would all depend on the manager we got.
Yan Dhanda (Free, Liverpool): A 19 year-old Midfielder, Yan Dhanda left Liverpool this summer and joined the Swans in a free, before we even hired Graham Potter. At one time one of the most promosing youngsters in Liverpool's Academy, injuries slowed down his progress, and ultimately made him fall behind other players. Citing lack of first-team playing time, Dhanda decided to join us this summer in hopes of getting regular playing time in the senior squad. Through 3 pre-season games, Dhanda has been one of the brighest and most impressive players in the squad, even scoring a game-winning goal and smashing a penalty in a shootout against Genoa. With our current injuries and shenanigans involved in our midfield, Dhanda has a good chance of becoming a starter and hopefully guide our midfield during the season.
Jordi Govea (Free, Real Madrid): Another 19 year-old from Ecuador, Jordi was the first signing under Potter. Not much can be said about the lad, but this is what Real Madrid had as his bio:
Jordi is an Ecuadorian defender who possess three key qualities for a player in his position: he's skilful, is able to go past a player and has a good shot on him. He's left footed and is able to send in good crosses on the run.
With Martin Olsson currently as our starting LB, and Kyle Naughton as the backup, the hope is that Jordi can develop on our U-23 squad and hopefully move up to the senior squad in coming years. Also the only man I've seen do a medical while wearing jeans (https://twitter.com/SwansOfficial/status/1015251916132057089)
Joel Asoro (€2 mil., Sunderland): Yet another 19 year-old, a Swedish winger who has represented his country in the younger levels, he was Potter's first senior signing. With world-class speed, and some impressive skills, Asoro was able to score 3 goals and get 2 assists last season in 26 apperances for Sunderland. While these numbers may seem a bit disappointing, many of these games were sub appearances on a very dysfunctional team. Along with Dhanda, Asoro has been one of the most impressive players during preseason, constantly beating his man with either speed or skills, and whipping in good balls to Legs. At the current rate, Asoro appears to have a good chance of starting on the right wing spot, with Nathan Dyer and Luciano Narsingh backing him up.
Predicted starting XI: NOTE: This is gonna be assuming Mawson, A. Ayew, Clucas, and Fernandez are all sold by the start of the season. If by some reason they end up staying, they are pretty much guaranteed to start. Based on the pre-season games so far, a lineup looking like this would be plausible, with Rodon most likely to be replaced by a CB (possibly Scott McKenna) when we buy one. Our second unit is looking something like this.
Best case scenario: Graham Potter is able to motivate and make sure our senior players (Fer, Carroll, etc.) stay fit, along with our youngsters being able to make an impact as expected, and also we retain Mawson, Fernandez, and Clucas, we can finish in the top 2 and get promoted automatically.
Worst case scenario: Our worst case scenario, and something many of us fear of happening, consists of primarily 3 things. 1. Graham Potter isn't given enough time to build an identity with our squad and is sacked by the midway point of the season by the greedy, dumb American owners. . 2. We end up not replacing the players we sold properly like last summer, therefore having a squad with holes everywhere and no chemistry. 3. Our youngsters such as Asoro, McBurnie, Dhanda and company don't pan out and progress at all, thefore becoming mediocre players. This would all culminate in us looking like Sunderland, and making relegation a probability.
Prediction: Realistically I see us selling Mawson and company in the last days before the season starts and not replacing them properly until later on. Because of this, as well as our current injuries with Fer and Clucas, I can see us initially struggling to build an identity but over time, we will start playing like Potter wants us and finishing the season strongly.
8th place, missing the play-offs by 4 points
What will happen to your closest rivals?: The scum that is known as Cardiff City will break the record for lowest points ever accumulated in a Premier League season, getting 5 points all from draws, and will therefore get relegated with 17 games to spare.

West Bromwich Albion by Joelwba

Location: The Hawthorns, West Bromwich, West Midlands
Nickname: The Baggies, The Throstles
Major honours: 1x League title, 1x League Cup, 5x FA Cup
17/18 finishing postion: 20th in Premier League (relegated)
Transfermarkt squad value: £101.16m
Manager: Darren Moore or Big Dave as he's known to Albion fans. A club icon as a player in the early 2000s, he returned to look after our U23 squad before being promoted to assistant manager by Alan Pardew in January. Following the end of Pardew's horrific reign, Moore took temporary charge with Albion facing inevitable relegation. He led us to wins over Newcastle, Spurs, Man Utd and a draw with Liverpool, somehow taking our futile battle for survival to the final week of the season. Following this he earned the head coach role permanently. Moore is loved among the Albion faithful, largely due to his reputation as a player here. He heavily favours a 4-4-2 formation and at the back end of last season, tended to soak up pressure and play on the counter attack. It will be interesting to see how his approach differs in a league where we are one of the favourites, not fighting to survive (hopefully)
Best player(s)/ talisman: It's an interesting situation for Albion currently. There are plenty of Premier League quality players still in the squad. A lot depends on if they are picked off before the deadline shuts. Chris Brunt is a club stalwart and likely to be reappointed as captain. He is adored by the fans and in my opinion will be an incredible asset in the championship. His set pieces alone will bring 10+ goals to the side. Kieran Gibbs is a high quality player who appears to be set to stay and should make a big difference. Jay Rodriguez, Craig Dawson, Salomon Rondon and Nacer Chadli should all make a big difference in this division IF they stay. In all honesty I expect to lose a few of the above. Sam Johnstone appears to be an astute signing to replace the outgoing Ben Foster.
Rising star: Sam Field he's one of our own! He looked completely at home against some of the top Premier League sides last campaign. A box-to-box midfielder, he's full of energy and looks so comfortable on the ball. I expect him to be a major part of our side this season, having just signed a new long-term deal.
Kyle Edwards is an exciting attacking midfielder who has been impressing in pre-season. He may have a part to play following a loan spell at Exeter last campaign.
Jonathon Leko looked like a potential world-beater when he first came through a couple of years back. A lightning quick winger full of tricks. A loan spell at Bristol City and limited appearances later he seems to be losing his way. Will be an interesting one to watch.
Finally, the enigma that is Olly Burke. After signing with us last summer for £15m, he failed to impress any of the four managers we had over the season. He looks exciting when he comes on, without any end product so far, and was unfairly blamed for a loss at West Ham by Alan 'Coward' Pardew. We all know the talent he's got. Hopefully we can see it this season.
What happened last season?: Let's not talk about it... We finally escaped the stranglehold of Tony Pulis, only to opt for the human joke that is Alan Pardew and duly hurtled towards relegation. Four of our players stole a taxi and then played (and lost) the following weekend.
Pardew was sacked about 3 months too late, and Moore took over, restoring pride with some notable wins over Man Utd and Spurs.
This season we also lost the great Cyrille Regis, and the outpouring of emotion and the coming together of the club during the weeks after his passing was something special.
Summer transfer business (so far): We started by releasing Claudio Yacob, Boaz Myhill and Gareth McAuley. Yacob and McAuley will be greatly missed but it is perhaps the right time for them to go.
Jonny Evans departed for Leicester for a cut-price £3m, Ben Foster left for Watford and James McClean has departed for Stoke City.
Sam Johnstone has been bought in to replace Foster, with Jonathon Bond arriving as backup. Kyle Bartley has joined from Swansea City and it appears that Harvey Barnes will soon be arriving on loan from Leicester.
Finally, James Morrison is currently out of contract but still with the club. His future is uncertain.
I am very happy with Johnstone and Bartley. It has been a quiet window for Albion so far but that is largely a good thing. The squad is packed with Premier League talent and the window is more about keeping hold of them.
There is major interest in Dawson and Rondon, along with interest in Rodriguez, Hegazi and Chadli. If any of the above go, then we would need to replace. Otherwise I would be happy with another striker and another CB.
It is also worth mentioning that every player in the Albion side suffered a 50% wage cut upon relegation which means that we are financially sound despite relegation, but may lead to more big names leaving.
Predicted starting XI: This is my best attempt. It will undoubtedly be 4-4-2. We may see Nyom in at right back and perhaps Barry in for Field.
Obviously about half of this side could leave, so we shall see.
Best case scenario: The bulk of the side remains and the quality in the side shines through as we breeze to automatic promotion.
Worst case scenario: The better players leave or do not put the effort in. Moore cannot transfer his great start into his first full season in management. We become embroiled in a relegation battle
Prediction: It will be somewhere in the middle. I'd like to think we'll go up automatically but I think play-offs are more likely. 6th
What will happen to your closest rivals?: Villa won't go down but will settle into mid-table, despite the recent takeover.
I think Wolves will do well in the PL, although I don't know how long Nuno will last before a big club comes in.

Stoke City by mrmariomaster

Location: Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire
Nickname: The Potters
Stadium: bet365 Stadium, 30,089 seats
Major honours: 1972 League Cup
17/18 finishing position: 19th, Premier League
Squad value: £127.8 million
Manager: Gary Rowett signed from Derby in May. His honest attitude has brought lots of optimism to fans, who are looking forward to an overhaul of the Club. His style of play seems to change based on the squad he has available.
Best Player: Joe Allen was vital to the Club last season, giving us hope that we would avoid relegation. His massive new contract signed this summer shows how loyal and committed to the Club he is, and will be a vital player this season.
Rising star: Tom Edwards is a local lad who has won the Under 18 Player of the Year award twice in the Club. In the latter parts of last season he played some good first team football.
What happened last season: A pathetic attempt at a season that had been coming for a while under Mark Hughes. Paul Lambert was appointed in January, but a win rate of just 2 in 15 matches wasn’t enough for him to keep his job and miss out on the million pound bonus offered to him.
Transfer business so far: So far this has been a decent transfer window. Peter Etebo had an amazing World Cup for Nigeria and Benik Afobe looks really promising. Adam Federici has also been appointed to replace Lee Grant. Xherdan Shaqiri has left along with a few players like Stephen Ireland and Glen Johnson who will not be missed. Badou Ndiaye also looks to be on his way out, but it looks like Jack Butland will stay with us, which is massive. Perhaps most surprising are the new contracts signed by our 2 best players last season, Joe Allen and Moritz Bauer.
Predicted Line up: Here is our predicted squad. I’m not sure what formation we will have. EDIT: This is a new version, complete with our rumoured new signings and in the right formation.
Best case scenario: Stoke will finish top with an all-time Championship points record.
Worst case scenario: A mediocre start to the season will see Rowett sacked and Stoke with a disappointing mid-table finish.
Prediction: I think with our squad and our new manager, we will finish 1st.
What will happen to our closest rivals? Port Vale will be relegated to the Vanarama National League.

Aston Villa by trueschoolalumni

Location: Villa Park, Trinity Rd, Birmingham B6 6HE
Nickname: The Villans, The Villa, Prince William's Club, David "Twat" Cameron's Second Club.
Major honours: 7 First Division wins, 7 FA Cups, 5 League Cups, 1 European Cup, 1 European Super Cup, 1 Intertoto Cup
17/18 finishing postion: 4th
Transfermarkt squad value: £67.77m and dropping fast
Manager: Steve Bruce (for now). Former Man Utd playing legend who's been a fixture of English football for decades. He joined Villa in 2016 after successful runs at Hull, Sunderland (yes they were good once) and Birmingham City. A bit of a promotion specialist, he's taken Championship clubs up to the Premier League 4 times in the past and just missed out last season, losing 1-0 to Fulham in the Playoff Final. Tactically, he's fairly old school who prefers 4-4-2 or a 4-1-4-1, usually involving a big man up top. Fun fact: while managing Huddersfield in 1999 he wrote three novels, "Striker!", "Sweeper!" and "Defender!", which focus on main character Steve Barnes, a football manager. Barnes solves crime and takes on terrorists, and the books have become prized rarities. The Guardian's Football Weekly podcast managed to get a copy and read out some of the copy - suitably awful.
Best player(s)/ talisman: There's only one Jack Grealish. A Villa boy through and through, he's been with the club since 2001 (aged 6), and made his way into the first team in the 2013-14 season. He's been the centre of controversy a few times, most notably getting on the beers and passing out on a Tenerife street. Playing as a number 10, his quick feet and dribbling skills provide a number of goals and assists, as well as fouls. He probably went down a bit too easily when first in the Premier League, but time in the gym has noticeably toughened him up and he's a much more solid player as a result. One of the better players in the Championship, and due to Villa's abject finances, a transfer target for the likes of Leicester.
Rising star: Keinan Davis could possibly be it, potentially Andre Green and Rushian Hepburn-Murphy as well.
What happened last season?: Have you ever walked into a casino, spotted the roulette table and popped £10,000 on red? It's a bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see if it pays off. You've doubled your money if you win, but look like a right git if you lose. Villa figured this was a good way to approach 2017-18: spend millions on players, get in lots of loans, gamble everything on achieving promotion. After a so-so start, Bruce got the team playing well, stringing together a number of wins and moving through the playoff spots. Unfortunately they ran into a few teams playing out of their skin - champions Wolves ran away with the league and boasted a squad that included several Champions League players. Neil Warnock's Cardiff couldn't stop winning and grabbed the second automatic promotion. In the playoff final Villa came up against a Ryan Sessegnon-led Fulham and were just pipped at the post 1-0.
Summer transfer business (so far): It's one-way traffic, due to absolutely abysmal finances. Loan spells for Lewis Grabban, Robert Snodgrass, Josh Onomah and Sam Johnstone have all ended, which is almost the spine of the team (Johnstone in particular - he was arguably the best keeper in the Championship and personally bagged a number of wins). Plus clubs are circling to pick off whatever assets we have left (eg. Jack Grealish, James Chester). With no prospect of anyone new coming in, it looks like the youth academy will be getting a lot more game time.
Predicted starting XI: Possibly this, but half these players could be gone before the first match.
Best case scenario: Mid-table anonymity would have to be best case - Villa are a mess and could go down this time around.
Worst case scenario: Our finances are the real issue - they are dire. Villa need to find £9 million this month to avoid going into administration. Owner "Dr." Tony Xia is a billionaire, apparently, but tax bills went unpaid and the question remains if he's able to support the club as generously as he has in the past. Administration, points deductions and potentially relegation to League One are all real possibilities right now. It's not looking good.
Prediction: Due to financial irregularities in the 23 clubs above us, Villa will get into the Champions League and take out the likes of Atletico, Bayern and Real Madrid on the way to our second European Cup. "Taylor, Green, prepared to venture down the left. There's a good ball played in for Jack Grealish. Oh, it must be and it is! It's Keinan Davis!"
What will happen to your closest rivals?: Unfortunately the Scum managed to avoid League One in the final rounds of the season. Here's hoping they go one better. Agbonlahor to re-sign for one game: the Derby. And score the winner, again.

Middlesbrough by OneSmallHuman

Location: The Riverside Stadium, Middlesbrough
Founded: 1876
Nickname: The Boro (Or just Boro)
Major honours: The League cup 2003-2004 season
17/18 finishing position: 5th
Transfermarkt squad value: 79.34m
Manager: Tony Pulis became manager of us in late December 2017, replacing the sacked Garry Monk after a pretty lacklustre few months of the campaign (despite where our league position was). Pulis is known in England for being the man that is never relegated when in charge of someone in the top flight. We are all aware of Tony Pulis' style of football. You start by having a strong and massive defence and maximise your use of set pieces to gain an advantage. Pulis is a lover of all set piece plays, whether that is crossing the ball in from a corner or free kick, or launching a ball into the box from a throw in, they're all in his arsenal of weapons. 'Pulisball' as it is pretty much known. Pulis has achieved promotion from the championship once before with Stoke, and I hope he achieves it again with us this season
Best player(s)/ rising star: I mean, where else do I begin. Adama Traore. Arguably the best player in the championship on his day and is one of the most frightening dribblers in English football, maybe even world football. The winger is known for his speed and dribbling ability although is usually criticised for his lack of end product. Before last season I would've agreed, however 5 goals and 10 assists, with all but 2 assists coming before Pulis' arrival show the progression of the Spanish winger.
As for other members of the squad, Ben Gibson, the prodigal son. Boro through and through he's progressed into a commanding centre half with the ability to play out from the back thanks to Karanka. He gained attention and emerged as one of the few given credit after our disappointing premier league campaign but was only the subject of one bid upon our relegation, from now manager Tony Pulis. It remains to be seen whether he'll be here come the first game of the season, but I hope he will be.
As for future stars, Dael Fry, already has played 2 championship campaigns for us and looks as assured as a veteran of the game. Another centre half produced by our academy and he is being played in cdm this pre-season by Pulis, to add to his versatility. Hopefully a standout season for him, especially if Gibson does end up leaving. Finally, yes, he does always look as confused as images of him show.
What happened last season?: Well, the first half of the season was tragic under Monk. We played really poor football at times and looked like we hadn't defended a day in our lives. There was also no consistency in the team, we'd win one game then lose the next. A key theme under both managers however, was our inability to beat those around us in the table. After Pulis' appointment the results picked up and it ended with us finishing 5th in the table. We ultimately lost in the playoff semi finals to Aston Villa but honestly, we didn't think we'd even be in the top half around Christmas.
Summer transfer business (so far): Just the three deals to talk about so far. We've acquired Paddy McNair from Sunderland who looks like a decent player. He's been utilised in right back and midfield during pre-season so it looks like they'll be his positions for the season. I imagine he'll play alongside Clayts and Howson in a midfield three.
Aden Flint was signed from Bristol City and I think I'm in the minority when I say I don't like how much we paid for him. Obviously the man is a Pulis player but I'm a bit unsure about his defensive ability. That being said he's looked strong during pre-season and I'm sure Pulis will get the best out of him. Fabio departed our club for Nantes so we'll need more full back cover.
As for the rest of the window, I expect Gibson to leave but will be delighted if he doesn't. One of our strikers will also leave and Braithwaite should follow after his decent World Cup performances. We'll probably bring in a striker and a winger and hopefully hold onto Adama. That'd be a successful window in my eyes.
Predicted starting XI: My best guess The only other guess I could make is that Gibson might leave and then Ayala would start, but he's injured at this point in time. Britt might play over Gestede too if Pulis is feeling fancy.
Best case scenario: It has to be top of the pile right? It's not out of the question to imagine us up there and if everything clicks then we've got a chance. A defence that scores more than some teams' strikers, Adama channelling his inner Messi and finding consistency, Rudy/Britt/Bamford scoring for fun. It could be carnage.
Worst case scenario: I can't see us finishing outside the playoffs, if we did then that would be gut-wrenching. But if we did then that would most certainly be the worst. Realistically, it'd be losing in the playoffs... again, and if it were in the final again then god help me. Although saying this, now losing Bamford and maybe Traore will be a worst case scenario in itself, definitely if they're not replaced.
Prediction: Have to be confident, although it always kills me. 1st or 2nd. Tony Pulis and his nice white trainers carry us to the promise land. That being said, we never do it the easy way.
Best Match of Last Season Sorry Leeds fans, but it had to be. "Hattrick Bamford" as our Twitter account tweeted, 3-0 against Leeds with Adama running the show. Leeds clearly found some positive from the game as they're set to sign him off us. This was the sign of what we should've done more last season. Showed what Paddy could've been too if given an even more extended period in Striker by himself. Oh well.
What will happen to your closest rivals?: Who even are our closest rivals in this league? We're in geographical purgatory. Can't say Sunderland anymore so what? Leeds? Bielsa either turns them into the well oiled machine they hope for or he succumbs to the old Leeds ways and is sacked by December. As for the Mackems, probably promoted from League 1.
