Reino Unido 🇬🇧 y más que nada Inglaterra 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 se merecía un párrafo aparte del hilo que publicamos la semana pasada. Porque si #EnEuropaSIpasa , en UK pasa mucho más.
Lee el verdadero rostro del fútbol que está de moda alabar.
Los ingleses inventaron el fútbol y fueron los dueños de la violencia en él hasta la década del 90´. Hubo un trinomio de tragedias que definió el futuro del balompié en Inglaterra y con ello en Reino Unido.
Tendrán su hilo propio, pero acá haremos una breve referencia.
Antes que nada, comentar el concepto “hooligan” que es y fue patrimonio inglés. Una palabra para señalar aquellos hinchas peligrosos y con actitudes violentas que pelean con la policía y otros grupos de hooligans generando destrozos. Esta idea nació a finales del siglo 19.

Öncelikle, St. Johnstone bir TD takımı, bununla başlayalım...

Callum Davidson, ilk TD deneyiminde hem İskoçya Lig Kupası'nı hem de İskoçya Kupası'nı kazandı. Efsanesi olduğu takımla...

Kazanırken dikkat çeken, Old Firm babaları haricindeki her takıma olan taktiksel üstünlüktü. Image
Neydi bu taktiksel üstünlük?

#EURO2020 sonrası popülaritesi artan 3-5-2 ile oynatıyor takımı.

Hastasıyım bu dizilişin çünkü hücum yaparken orta sahanızı kalabalık tutup rakip ceza sahası içinde çok adamla yer alabiliyorken; işin savunma kısmını da fazla adamla yapabiliyorsunuz. Image
Bu dizilişte beklerin önemi malum, geçen sezon kupa yolunda/yollarında sağ kanadı emanet ettikleri Shaun Rooney sürpriz golcüydü.

İskoçya Kupası'nda finaldeki golüyle kupa geldi, İskoçya Lig Kupası'nda ise çeyrek final ve sonrasını 3 gol 1 asistle bitirdi... Image

It is time for men to learn from women how to play football.
1/ #ItsComingHome #EURO2020 #CopaAmerica
In 2015, I went to the quarter final and the semi final of the women's World Cup in Montreal and saw the US beat France in the former and beat Germany in the latter.

If queer is the opposite of heteronormativity, it was the queerest--and joyously so--sporting environment.
The stands were full of outsiders: women with babies, teenage girls-- a demographic I rarely see in televised men’s games--with their faces painted in the colors of their teams and men there alone. #ItsComingHome #Euros2021 #CopaAmerica2021 📷 @rerutled Mona with red hair and a pa...

This thread has taken me a hot minute, but finally, after a lot of time and effort, it is here.

It features some of the players that we've been linked with in three key positions - ST, CB, and CM - as well as a few of my own recommendations.
The metrics I have used to create the radar charts are largely the same as in previous threads, and so I will not list them all here.

If, however, there are any metrics that you aren't sure about, then just ask and I'll let you know!
We've been linked with a ton of players, some of whom have already moved to other clubs e.g., Patson Daka to Leicester.

I'll be focusing on 6 players in each position that we've been linked to, and then highlighting 4 or 5 other players who I think could be good signings.

No.10 "totally rejects" claim by @GNev2 after Euro2020 that @BorisJohnson has himself “promoted” racist abuse with language like Muslim women looking like letterboxes.

“I totally reject that claim," PM's official spokesperson says.
"The prime minister set out this morning his response to some of the awful comments we've seen. He said this England team deserve to be lauded as heroes not racially abused on social media, those responsible for this appalling abuse should be ashamed of themselves,”
On Neville claim that PM + other ministers suggested it was fine to boo players taking the knee, he added: “It’s not accurate.

“The PM was clear that he wanted to see everyone getting behind the team to cheer them on. He made that clear on the 11th, before England’s first game.”

🇮🇹 Italy win #Euro2020 review THREAD

I’ve got so much to say and will be touching on:

😡 Fans/Discrimination/My experience
🤔 Managers
✅ Standout performers
🐮 fArmErS LeAgUE
💡 Fantasy
📥 DMs
🎙️ Motto

I planned to chat about the football but this is bigger than that.

Some of the scenes from Wembley & across the UK are frightening.Yes every country has groups of extreme fans but none more so than England it seems. I’m ashamed of their behaviour. I spent Saturday..

running a tournament for @StreetChildUtd with refuge children & there was so much positivity & valuable discussion about discrimination. To see the racial abuse England players have received 24 hrs later fills me with anger. These kids & those players don't deserve that.

#EURO2020 has opened up a space about what it means to be English and who belongs in England.
This tournament has been a tale of two Englands - one of inclusion and support; the other division and abuse.
Both were on show throughout, and exploded after the final. 1/12
The team demonstrated solidarity & anti-racism for a country divided by a pandemic & hate: Rashford & Henderson who had coordinated support during the pandemic, to Sterling’s leadership in exposing racism, the team taking the knee to Kane wearing the Pride captain’s armband. 2/12
Many images of fans from communities across the country showed England could be an inclusive nation.
This was important because politicians and media, plus a sizeable section of the country, have openly courted division & exclusion. 3/12

We (England) have lost in the final of #Euro2020 to the best team in the tournament. Who have been unbeaten now in 34 games, that run spans nearly 3 years!

The pre game energy in the stadium was the most electric I have seen inside Wembley stadium.
The whole stadium were United in clapping both teams taking the knee (the non political act the squad are committed to).
What a start to the biggest England game of our lives - everyone there United behind our national team.
Up to this point the team have been superb, the players loved and idolised by the nation due to their efforts on the pitch - and rightly so.
