It's very encouraging. With Mendy being out for the start of the season it's good to see Danilo putting in a reassuring performance. Good to see some youngsters being tested and rising to the challenge.  I wonder if any of those youngsters will be included in the senior squad for this campaign? Still need another centre back though.

I don't think we'll get either of Mbappe or Sanchez. If that 200m+ offer from Real Madrid is legit there's no way we're going that high for over and above necessity. Of the two though Sanchez would seem the most likely since if he wants to leave Arsenal there doesn't seem to be anyone left in for him. For me though I wouldn't pay over and above for him.

Off Topic / Premier League wins anti-piracy court order
« Last post by Chippy_Tea on July 26, 2017, 08:32:34 PM »


The Premier League has been awarded a High Court order for the forthcoming 2017-18 season, which will help it combat the illegal streaming of games.

The blocking order will require UK Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to prevent people from illegally accessing streams of its matches.

It will allow the league to combat the illicit sale and use of devices such as pre-loaded IPTV and Kodi boxes.

A similar order was obtained for the final two months of the 2016-17 season.

That saw more then 5,000 server IP addresses blocked that had previously been streaming Premier League content.

Sky and BT Sport hold the live rights for Premier League football. The two firms paid a record 5.136bn for rights to show live matches for three seasons.

What are Kodi boxes?

Kodi is free software, built by volunteers, that is designed to bring videos, music, games and photographs together in one easy-to-use application.

Some shops sell set-top boxes and TV sticks known as Kodi boxes, preloaded with the software.

The developers behind Kodi say their software does not contain any content of its own and is designed to play legally owned media or content "freely available" on the internet.

However, the software can be modified with third-party add-ons that provide access to pirated copies of films and TV series, or provide free access to subscription television channels and programmes, including sports events.

The English top flight League is currently undertaking its biggest ever copyright protection programme.

Its anti-piracy efforts have also contributed to a range of prominent apps and add-ons being closed down as the law catches up with them.

"This blocking order is a game-changer in our efforts to tackle the supply and use of illicit streams of our content," said Premier League Director of Legal Services, Kevin Plumb.

"It will allow us to quickly and effectively block and disrupt the illegal broadcast of Premier League football via any means, including so called 'pre-loaded Kodi boxes'.

"The protection of our copyright, and the investment made by our broadcast partners, is hugely important to the Premier League and the future health of English football."

A recent poll of 1,000 people for BBC 5 live Daily found:

Nearly half of fans say they have streamed a match online through an unofficial provider - just over a third do so at least once a month and about one in five at least once a week

The main reasons include a friend/family member doing it and they just watch; the quality of the stream; and because sports TV packages are considered not good value for money

Just under a third of fans do not know whether it is illegal to stream live Premier League matches online from unofficial providers, but another third believe it is always illegal.

I used to have Sky sports but the whole packaged along with having to pay for HD got a bit silly i don't watch a lot of sport other than football so 8:50 a month (or 28.45 for Sky Sports, for broadband and home phone) seems a decent price compared to what i used to pay.

Get Sky Sports, broadband and home phone for 28.45 per month.

alkTalk is billing itself as the cheapest place for customers looking for a Sky Sports package, with the launch of a triple bundle that gets you an extensive range of Sky Sports channels, broadband and home phone for 28.45 a month.

The deal offers broadband speeds of up to 18Mbps and no usage caps, along with a free TalkTalk TV Box, eight Sky Sports channels and a fixed price guarantee with no price hikes mid-contract.

Another option for sports fans could be the Faster Fibre package with Sky Sports, which costs 35 a month for 18 months.

This offers broadband speeds of up to 38Mbps and savings of up to 840 against similar products from Sky.

Alternatively, customers could save 615 by opting for this over a similar deal by Virgin Media, or 543.81 when compared with BT.

He was very complimentary about the club though, and has specifically mentioned the support staff , boot boys, canteen staff photograhers etc in his farewell interview . I quite liked that , and i wish him well. Unlike that moody cunt Nasri. We've put him in the shop window by dragging him round the USA on the pre season tour and it just highlights that he's past his sell by date by a couple of years

Just Sanchez and Mbappe to go get now. Will be get neither? one? or both? If we get one of them Aguero might stay, if we get both , he's on his bike.
Saw some Youtube clips of our new signing Luiz. Hope he improves his shooting accuracy when he is loaned out . Most highlights were shots missing the target or goals that took deflections on the way in
