Live Football And Other Top Sports Online



Live Football & Other Sports Online - News And Games

Where To Watch Live Football, Tennis, Darts etc

The internet isn't just for Facebook and porn, there are actually some useful things going on out there in cyberspace! One of the most useful for sports fans is the ability to watch live sports streams online. What started off as something for the serious techno nerds and all around geeks has become very much mainstream and it's something that vast numbers of people are doing week in and week out in order to watch more live football.

The Bookmakers

An ever growing number of online bookmakers have started to offer live streams of various sports including of course the ever popular football, including top matches from major European leagues. Whilst the rules vary from bookie to bookie (some require deposits and some may even require a bet placed on a particluar event to watch it) the result is the same, professional quality live streams of lots of sports events that you just wouldn't get to see any other way. Technically it's simple, no more complex than watching a Youtube video. An embedded video player is used to show the live sports streams and because of this it's possible to view in 99% of web browsers, the only problem may come from some Apple devices, why they insist in not supporting Flash is anybodys guess. The only other restriction to talk about is that some events are Geo Restricted depending on broadcaster rights in particular countries. But the bookmakers are still an excellent way of watching more live football than you'd otherwise ever get to see.

The Broadcasters

It took some time but they're finally starting to see the light, online is the perfect medium for opening up sport to more people and increasing viewing figures as well as revenue from advertising. Of course what is available very much varies country to country but the trend is still positive for sports fans, we are slowly seeing more sports appearing live online. In the UK the BBC in particular provides excellent live sports coverage online, the Formula 1 needs special mention. Vital practice sessions that were once only a 30 second pre-qualifying summary slot are now shown live online. You can also be sure that every football match that the BBC cover is shown live online as well, an invaluable service for when you're stuck in work or away from a TV. Sky even have their NowTV service (they just love showing Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal games!)which allows you to watch live Sky Sports action through your mobile device for a reduced subscription cost. It is still early days and there is still a long way to go but we are slowly getting there, surely it will only be a matter of time before we can watch ALL football matches live online?

Current News From Bet365

Soccer - Rodgers eagerly awaiting Christie return

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers says Ryan Christie is likely to return to the fold quicker than expected. The midfielder was stretchered off during Thursday's Europa League defeat against Salzburg and it was initially feared he could face an extended spell on the sidelines. However, Christie's issue is not as serious as first thought, so much so that he has been able to do some light running. Next up for the Hoops is Wednesday's visit of Motherwell, a game they are 1/6 to win with bet365 and although that fixture looks set to come too soon, Rodgers is bullish about his recovery. "Ryan has been out running on the field running, so that's good news," Rodgers said. "He won't be available for tomorrow, but we'll see where he is towards the weekend."

Soccer - United sack Mourinho

Manchester United have sacked manager Jose Mourinho after two-and-a-half years in charge. The Portuguese took over at Old Trafford in the summer of 2016 and was quickly followed into the club by then-world record signing Paul Pogba. Mourinho's first season in charge was deemed a success after winning both the EFL Cup and Europa League, while he guided the club to second behind Manchester City last season. The 2018-19 campaign has been a poor one to date, with United 19 points adrift of leaders Liverpool following Sunday's 3-1 defeat at Anfield. Michael Carrick will take temporary charge and an external appointment is set to be made before the end of the week. A statement on the club's website: "Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect. "The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future." The Red Devils are 14/1 with bet365 to finish in the top four.

Soccer - De Bruyne raring to go

Kevin De Bruyne says he is desperate to get some minutes under his belt for Manchester City as he aims to propel their quest for silverware. The Belgium international has been beset by knee injuries this season, with two separate issues limiting him to just six appearances for the Citizens. However, he returned for the last 20 minutes of Saturday's 3-1 win over Everton and could play some part in Tuesday's EFL Cup trip to Leicester. The holders are 7/4 to retain the trophy with bet365 and De Bruyne says he is ready to take any playing time available to him. "I just need some game time," the 27-year-old told the club's website. "Against Everton, I came on and just ran for 20 minutes. I'm not looking to play a good game, just run without stopping."
