Best Job in The World Winner, Ollie Silverton gives us his daily previews for the World Cup along with his betting tips.
Well dear friends, it looks like our time together has come to an end. The Germans went ahead and won it and this last month has left us with so many great memories. In this video I hope to help you re-live those memories as I try and replicate the greatest moments of the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. Enjoy
The Germans. We should always remember to trust the Germans in tournament football, and they didn’t even need penalties this time.
Do we look back at this World Cup and see the self-destruction of Brazil? The worst ever England performance at an international tournament? And another instance of Luis Suarez feeling peckish?
So sadly the tournament has come to an end, and Germany have emerged as the well deserved winners! We’ve seen some stunning football, and some less impressive play, but all in all this tournament has been incredible and a truly memorable sporting event.
Alright everyone, Gabriel here. It's been a fantastic month of football and I hope that you have all enjoyed this World Cup as much as I have. Here's hoping that the final is a good one!
So here it is, the end. The whirlwind that is the world cup is now over. Well, technically it isn't while I'm writing this; its 4pm and I'm contemplating what food and beer to have to accompany the grand finale.
During the course of the greatest World Cup we have ever witnessed on my Twitter I have been running a challenge. I was giving my tips and predictions for the tournament and used the hashtag #ChallengeGabriel so that people could find them.
Alas, this wonderful tournament that brings us great joy, frustration and a reason to eat junk every night, is nearing the end. Pretty soon we will be asking ourselves “what now” after the final whistle is blown this Sunday.
Hey everyone! Just doing a video on my predictions for the 3rd place play-off! I'm hoping for a Netherlands win and think they can do it but I have also included a few tips for the Brazil supporters! Check out my twitter and my other blogs in case I have more tips!
With England out, my second team out and my sweepstake out, it’s safe to say that the World Cup is close to the end. But all is not lost my friend, football is the all-consuming sport and there is a lot more to come.
It is like going to the ‘other’ party because you didn’t get invited to the cool kids’ one. I have always thought you must be on the floor after getting dumped out in the semis and then you have to hang around like a bad smell and drag your inadequate face on the pitch for one last go. But could this one be different ?
Well, we are reaching the end of the World Cup (I don’t know what are we going to do with no football) and the final could not be better. Germany v Argentina, two of the biggest teams in world football battling it out for the biggest title in the game.
Titan Bet Ambassador Tom James gives us his view of the Semi Finals and has a look back at his tips on the games, all from the High Street of hometown Bognor Regis.
At the start of this delightful tournament, I was given a country to base my Titan Bet blogs around. The country I received was Brazil. I would be lying if I said I was not pleased. Brazil! The home country! The obvious favourites! I felt as though I had got a pretty good deal.
The World Cup is the greatest stage of them all for footballers to make a name for themselves. With billions of people watching across the globe, a moment of inspiration can make a previously unknown journeyman a household name in Australia, Kazakhstan and Brazil.
With the 2014 quickly closing, and the knowledge that it will yet again be a South American or European team that lifts the trophy, when will the other continents succeed?
The time has come where we are all in the break period once again, waiting eagerly for the semi-finals of the 2014 World Cup. It is during these breaks that I find myself asking: what do I do when this is all over?
Let’s be honest here, this World Cup has been incredible. More goals than you could shake a stick at, crazy last minute drama and a lot of action from football’s greatest players. But there are some people that don’t get as much attention as they probably should.
Due to the fact that England's campaign was not very good to say the least, the positives have been overshadowed by the negatives. But fear not, as my XI for the next World Cup may get one or two Englishmen excited! My team will play in a 4-2-3-1 formation as England’s midfield options outweigh the striking options by far!
Over the course of this World Cup we have seen many players shine on the big stage. I am going to name you my best XI from this year’s World Cup so far and explain why. I will be going with the classic formation of 4-4-2. Starting from the back and working my way forward!
The number of times that this has been said over the course of the last four or five days is getting ridiculous! I said in my first blog that this World Cup could be one of the greatest ever! I wasn’t far wrong! Absolutely outstanding quality of football. Who would have thought at the end of a 0-0 draw commentators would be saying “What a cracking game of football we just watched!”
There is no question about it, England’s players are overpriced and overpaid. So I have come up with what I consider to be the best XI of the 2014 World Cup thus far and matched them up against the highest earners of England’s World Cup squad, to see just how fanatical the English market has become.
As we’re now steadily approaching the quarter finals, and thus the final itself, is it a possibility for the trophy to return to our little old continent for four more years?
This tournament has been amazing, if not for some of the awesome football we’ve seen but for how competitive each group has been. Due to the competitiveness, a few players will miss out on playing in the knockout stages. So I’ve decided to make a team of 11 that have impressed the most and were their countries’ standout players.
The 2014 World Cup is now more than two weeks old and few can argue that it has been one of the most exciting tournaments in recent years. There have been great goals and enthralling performances, underdog stories and falls from grace, but above all there have been some truly incredible fans from across the globe roaring their respective teams on.
It has now officially been 14 days since the opening game of the World Cup in Brazil. That also means it is now half way until this absolute festival of sport comes to an end. Now, I know that is pretty depressing to think about but we cannot complain so far. We have had ups and downs – more downs as an England supporter – but there is one thing that is for sure, it has been entertaining.
Which outstanding performers can you expect to make a big move this summer? I list the 5 top players who you can expect to make a big move to an elite European league this transfer window.
After bowing out of this World Cup after just eight days, there are no more excuses. To prove that we need to get over ’66 and finally accept that we’re just not that great at football, I have compiled a sobering list of the worst 10 players to have donned the England shirt since the year 2000.
With Joel Campbell leading the line for a historic Costa Rican team it seems suitable to have a look at some other ‘youngsters’ that could make a name for themselves at this year’s tournament. So, I’ve decided to pick the five youngsters who you should remember, as they will be the future stars of the game, in theory! Now, the term youngsters could be taken a number of ways, however in this blog the focus will be on players that are age 21 or under.
We are exactly one week into the tournament and what a treat this one week has been! We’ve seen our fair share of fantastic goals and horrendous mistakes, and Brazil have been nothing but diligent hosts. We have seen no signs of their rumoured detrimental organisation, the stadia are holding up perfectly and with the great football to match, this tournament has been a complete success in its early stages.
With sides such as Spain, Australia and Cameroon already saying goodbye to the tournament could we see kit prices drop? Well honestly I have no idea... If they do, great, and if they don’t, well they will eventually. So who’s wearing the best and worst kits?
