Buffon vs Golden Ball by JerryDrake



In this kind of bets you have so many 'horses' and the tempation is to bet a lot of money on Neymar, Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo to be the 'best player' (World Cup Goldem Ball) at Brazil 2014.


When you hear tips like 'never bet your favourite team' it means that - the one who says it (or a bookmaker can think it) thinks about you that you are a loser. Not a good prejudice.


I have another opinion. Every 'winner' must also maintain a good heart and passion for his favorite teams or players. Maybe those gamblers will not obtain a pay-out through this bet but it is this kind of bets that it keeps your interest in the game.


You see me sometimes betting on Juventus but I always try to be rational.


Different thing is for this kind of bet, this 'horse race' where you can afford to use and lose one unit for a bet who is very difficult to come. But if you win this bet, then you have two satisfactions: to get 150 units back and to read comments like 'this was luck'. Normal, you need luck. But we dont seek luck.


Gianluigi Buffon will participate at his 5th World Cup. In 2006 he arrived second behind Cannavaro in the Golden Ball of Germany 2006. He is now the Italian player with the most appearances with the Italian national team. 'Gigi' has not reached yet the end of his carreer and I am sure, before finishing it, in 4-5 years or more, he will have won other important titles (another World Cup? the Champions League with Juventus?).


He already won a lot of International prizes as the best goalkeeper of last decade, even of the last quarter of century prize if I'm not wrong.


The only thing where he has not been able to show his skills are the penalty although he is good also at it.


As Italian I must hope that Italy will win the 5th World Cup. And this can happen only with a Super-Buffon.

goalkeeper with this price ... I don't think so, but who knows .. it can be :)

Yes, extremely difficult. Each of you can bet on your favorite one. One unit. Let me know which one will you bet, the date and odds of your bet. It will be funny to see who can foresee such a difficult event. Everyone would say Neymar as the winner of the World Cup Golden Ball will 99% be a player of the winning team.

do you realize that hes a goalkeeper? do you realize that he play for poor italy? do you realize that he might not be in start eleven?

No, I dont realize.

To make the bet even virtualy stand a chance, it would mean Italy actually has to play some good football. Even though it was a friendly they still drew with Luxembourg. One of the top 5 worst teams in Europe. It takes some serious problems to fail in such a game. Bye bye Italy.

Balotelli is to football what Leyton Hewitt was to tennis, an overhyped idiot. Immobile would have to become a super-hero and games would have to be fixed. Good luck reaching the quearterfinals.
