Start of The Premier League

Posted by | App News, Features | No Comments

The Premier League Arrives!

It only seems like yesterday since we saw France winning the World Cup! After a small break in the football, The Premier League is back!

The season kicks off with Manchester United hosting Leicester City. United have recently been trying, but failing, to swipe the Foxes’ World Cup hero, Harry Maguire. So this battle will be intriguing as the Red Devils look on to see who they could have had. United did not make much progress in the transfer window, much to Mourinho’s dismay, with his anger directed at the board due to lack of funds.

As we look further into the season, it will be interesting to see how the newly promoted teams do. Wolves already had Premier League calibre within the Championship, winning it comfortably. Now as the Premier League approaches, they have made a huge statement with the signing of players, such as Rui Patricio, João Moutinho and Dendoncker. It could be interesting to see if they can push for a top half finish, or maybe even a Europa League place. Fulham have retained their star players, wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon and captain Tom Cairney. They have also made useful additions to their squad; Andre Schurrle has returned to familiar West London surroundings, but located in Craven Cottage, rather than Stamford Bridge. Cardiff look to upset the odds with their direct style of play, disrupting well-polished, passing units. However, their new signings with a lack of top flight experience could be a downfall. It is no surprise that they are favourites to go straight back down. However, like we saw when Leicester won the Premier League, anything can happen!

The biggest opening game of the season will no doubt be Arsenal v Manchester City. Manchester City look strong favourites to retain the trophy, adding more ammunition to their attack with the acquisition of Riyad Mahrez. Arsenal may look optimistic with their new manager, Unai Emery. The new boss will bring a fresh new approach to the Gunners, which they have needed for a few years. Signings such as Torreira and Papastathopoulos have helped the cause and Arsenal fans will hope that this change will motivate the team to a title push.

The World Cup at CrowdScores

World Cup: Russia 2018

It seems like forever since we watched Germany lift the World Cup in 2014. We saw Mario Gotze score his 113th minute winner, Brazil got embarrassed 7-1 by the Germans and England did not even reaching our own low expectations of them. But once again, hopes have been renewed, the national team shirts are out of the wardrobes and excitement has set in once again for the world’s greatest tournament!

iOS 4.2.4 Update Now Available

Posted by | App News | No Comments

iOS version 4.2.4 with improvements to the CrowdScores Community released this week.

As the community grows in the app, we are always looking to improve the experience for our users. So we have used your feedback and this week we have begun to roll out an update to iOS.

Moderators

As the community expands, it becomes a lot more difficult to monitor all the chats and find people who are being detrimental to the community and spoil it for everyone else with abusive behaviour or spamming.

We have recruited six users with a good track record of reporting and conduct within the community to help CrowdScores moderate the comments section of the games. They will also be there to give feedback and improvements to the team, which will help the community become a better place.

User Profiles

You asked for them, we listened! We are happy to announce that user Profiles are coming to iOS. When the profile picture of the user is clicked, it will come up with a user profile card, showing contributions, comments and likes count.

We also have made major improvements in the performance of the app. The app will run a lot smoother and faster when it comes to a busy matchday.

iphone update

Keep an eye out on the App Store for the latest update, or, you can download the app!
