This sounds like something that someone who would fix a friendly would say 🤔

Just cut the fucking dirty head off the snake and get Delaney OUT.

The investigation will cost the FAI more than they give the league winner.

Just because it's a friendly, doesn't mean you can't bet on it.

Players in a league where most have to work a second job, and 20% of players earn less that €280 a month.

The league's a joke :(

Who fixes a friendly?

Was making a joke that clearly wasn't very good

Haha. Don't be stupid, no one fixes a friendly, its pointless to even investigate it. Haha.

You can still bet on friendlies.

Not paying their players, I wonder why the players fixed this match then

Who says the betting sites wouldn't profit from this? I actually would expect most match-fixing to be caused by betting hosts, because they'd know from which team winning they'd profit the most.

It's easier to mess up on purpose in a friendly match as well.. I mean teams aren't taking them like a CL final or anything, so some players just might "not bother" in a friendly...

Friendly or not.. When there's a chance to make money, people go for it.

And yet you're saying this here on /sub/soccer.

Betting sites have their people who monitor all that stuff so nothing would go unnoticed, basically.. Almost..
