(1/60) As promised, here is a thread on how the Top 6 in the Premier League will be impacted by the new Financial Sustainability Regulation (FSR), expected to have a dramatic impact on the summer transfer window of 2023. #MUFC #LFC #Spurs #ManCity #Arsenal #CFC #FSR
(2/60) Unfortunately, my threads tend to get really long, but the subject is complicated, so you have to bear with me to get through this. First, we will look at the relevant rules of the FSR (i.e. the “new” FFP rules).
(3/60) After that, we will look at the forecast of each Club, starting from the bottom. Lastly, we will cover the quality of each forecast, since that differ due to available information, and I will also add some thoughts on the margins of error.

Last weekend featured several high-profile matches ⚽️ here is our take on some of them, using our Match Reports 👇 🧵
#ManchesterCity struggled to create chances (0.73 xG) despite their territorial dominance (70.6% Field Tilt). #ManchesterUnited were more direct (17.4% vs 4.9% long pass %) and more dangerous (1.69 xG), turning the derby around within four minutes
#NapoliJuventus 5-1
As usual this season, #Napoli dominated territory (56.5% Field Tilt), attacking production (2.38 vs 0.83 xG) and shooting quality (4 xGoT, new seasonal max), extending their lead in #SerieA to +9. #Juventus offered little resistance, especially in 2nd half

🧵So this morning’s reports confirm that Sporting’s stubbornness over Pedro Porro’s €45m (release clause is a stumbling block for #Spurs.

Whilst I have optimism that a deal will still be reached, it would be smart to profile alternative RWB options who would fit Conte’s system:
First though, what makes a Conte wing-back:

Physicality + stamina. The ability to dominate a flank for 90 minutes.

Technical capability. Good combination play with the 10 + consistent, accurate deliveries from wide.

Goal scoring instincts, timing + finishing at the back post.

Tonight's title: Splash Wildebeest
#Magic at #Sixers

Bamba returns! But we weren't worried there, really. The bigger news is Jalen Suggs broke a thumb and that changes things here with Cole Anthony still out.
Oh, the universe says I'm supposed to tag these threads with #FantasyBasketball so we'll just do that here and see how it goes.

The wife has some patient notes to write, so I suppose I can carve out some time for this JUMBO STYLE TWEETSTORM.

Let's see if I can make it through to the end in one piece. It was a behemoth.

RTs/Likes always appreciated!

Title: Wait, Who Got Hurt?
#Suns @ #Cavaliers

Look at big JaVale. Hah! I have a soft spot for him, and honestly he hasn't been that bad lately. He's a dynamite fill-in if Ayton misses time again down the road. In the interim, he's more of a 14 or 16 teamer. Still fun, though.
Kevin Love is very much in the streamer discussion but not a games cap level guy. Jarrett Allen's FG% is robust. But overall, no particularly earth-shattering fantasy valuation changes.

Title: Gobert, Back in the Top 18

Yeah, you know where this is headed.

RTs and Likes, as always, are the steam in my engine.
#Nets @ #Cavaliers

LMA played great again and he's absolutely a must-start guy in games cap formats. Harder to deal with on the rest days in h2h but he's been so good lately he probably hangs on even there. Mills is a nice stream with Harris out.
Markkanen and Allen came back from various illnesses and looked great. Fire 'em up! Kevin Love is somehow hanging onto deep league value but his little baby-sized window to play more is gone. As is Ed Davis. Isaac Okoro needs to show me more consistency before I add there.

Pape Matar Sarr is a young, versatile Senegalese midfielder playing for FC Metz. Interestingly, he’s from the same academy that produced the likes of Sadio Mane, Ismaila Sarr & Papiss Cisse. He played most of his games as a DM, but featured at CM too.
#Sarr #Metz #Spurs #THFC
From the footage, we see his biggest strengths are his ball-carrying & defensive abilities.He also likes taking many shots, averaging 1.75 per game [92nd percentile], out of which 0.48 are on target[84th percentile].This allowed him to score 3 goals, outperforming his xG by 2.21.
Sarr’s most touches unsurprisingly come in the mid-third area of the field. From these heat maps, we can see Sarr loves pushing up forward as well, suggesting he’s more box to box. We can also see he usually plays on the left side.

This is what @Spurs_ES get with @11BryanGil (little thread)

One of the most promising/talented youngsters in the hardest thing in football: 1v1s. He has learnt to choose when to do it, but Nuno will encourage him to do it often. Not only he is good driving with the ball...
he can beat you in small spaces and when stopped. His pace and quick mind helps. Brave he is, but his game doesn't stop there

He has learnt to make calculated runs into the box when the ball comes from the other side and at Eibar he has added goals to his game
But there is more. Coach Mendilibar demanded that he runs even faster and commits even more when he doesn't have the ball. Which he did. In fact, he loves doing it as stealing the ball (one the forwards that do that more often) has created many chances for his team

Whether it’s winning trophies or making managerial exits, José Mourinho is rarely out of the headlines. We get up close and personal with the former #Spurs boss – and the Times’ latest signing…
“I want to believe that people think I am a very good professional, that I am a person of good will. You get a red card for bad behaviour, that’s fair. I say that I am genuine,” says José Mourinho.
“England is special for football,” he adds. “That was my initial attraction. I made the choice of England for football. In England it is competition at the highest level. That attracted me. It’s all about the pressure. I want it.”

Thread [#SuperLeague]
What it is - 12 European clubs have come together to announce a new competition called the Super League governed by its founding clubs. Arsenal, Atletico, Chelsea, Barca, Inter, Juve, Liverpool, City, United, Madrid and Spurs are the 12 founders
Along with the current 12, 3 more clubs are set to join them as founders making it 15 in all.
How it's going to work - 20 teams (15 founders + qualifying mechanism for 5 teams to qualify annually). Midweek fixtures with clubs playing their domestic leagues
Which is "the heart of the club game". Competition starts in August, 2 groups of 10 each and both home and away fixtures. Top 3 from each group qualify with the 4th and 5th from both groups playing a playoff round for remaining QF positions.

The news cycle is a confusing space sometimes;

- #ElectricCars are the future for the planet
- Mining #Lithium batteries is destroying parts of Bolivia/Chile/Argentina

- Decentralised #Cryptocurrencies are the future
- Mining #Bitcoin = huge energy consumption
The narrative around everything nowadays is all about #Values

Corporates latch onto every opportunity

Individuals the same (just read some of the stuff on LinkedIn) 🧐

Life & business is essentially a game
#Winning is always key! (Be nice tho)

The rest is Perception=Reality
I'm a #football fan & I see a footy angle in almost everything I read! 🧐

Not sure if these connections stand up, but here's what I saw;

- #Bolivia former President #EvoMorales was ousted in 2019. Evo a #SimonBolivar anti-imperialist styled leader

1/3 #Spurs coach Gregg Popovich on the attack at the US Capitol and the events in Washington, D.C.

Pop said he believes "with all his heart that (President) Trump enjoyed it." #KSATsports #KSATnews #NBA
2/3 Popovich on VP Mike Pence, invoking the 25th amendment, Sen. Josh Hawley and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. "They throw fuel on to Trumps fire. They are worse than Trump because they are not sick. Mr. Trump is not a well man." #Spurs #KSATsports #KSATnews #NBA
3/3 Popovich on racism and the stark differences between the police presence at the US Capitol compared to this summer's protests over the killing of George Floyd. #KSATsports #NBA #KSATnews #Spurs

#Rassismus einfach erklärt (ein Thread):

Auf der einen Seite Nabil Bentaleb von #S04 , scheinbar charakterlich schwierig, geringe Arbeitsmoral, Verweis auf algerische Wurzeln. Wuchs in einem Arbeiterviertel auf, mit 10 in die Nachwuchsakademie, mit 14 nach Belgien. (1/11)
Mit 18 auf die Insel. Hatte in jungen Jahren scheinbar schon großen Ehrgeiz&Antrieb für eine Profikarriere. Als 14-Jähriger in ein anderes Land zu gehen? Das zeigt Reife, Zielstrebigkeit&zeugt von hoher Arbeitsmoral. Mit 19 der Lohn: Premier League-Debut für die #Spurs. (2/11)
Auf der anderen Seite (exemplarisch) Max Kruse von #Union Berlin. Aufgewachsen in Reinbek bei Hamburg. Mit 18(!!!) erst der Wechsel zu Werder Bremen, mit 24 genau EIN Bundesligaspiel. Zielstrebigkeit und Ehrgeiz? Nur bedingt. Zweite Mannschaft ist ja auch schön. (3/11)

Here is my breakdown for the @SouthamptonFC vs @SpursOfficial Spurs game.
Please do like and retweet and do give suggestions so that I can improve my content.
#PremierLeague #SOUTOT #Spurs Image
1) Southampton maintained a good high defensive line. Son, Kane, and Moura were caught offside on several occasions. Moura was too narrow in the first half not providing any width. #PremierLeague #SOUTOT #Spurs Image
2) Che Adams was not particularly clinical as Ings up top missing two great opportunities to open the scoring. Djenpo created some chances and also hit the woodwork once. #PremierLeague #SOUTOT #Spurs

THREAD: I used data to find #Spurs a capable backup to Harry #Kane
Constraints: Under 27 (enabling 3+ years of playing + potential re-selling), under £25m (Daniel Levy) & minimum of 900 minutes in his last season.

Two options:
1. A well-built strong forward to lead the line alone
2. An agile forward to press & play multiple roles as required.
Playstyle: I looked for strikers who brought a capable mix of pitching in with goals both when starting & off the bench and ability to feed others to score goals. This is important given Spurs' recent playstyle and reliance on wingers to score (Son, Lucas, Bergwijn).

“No se imaginan el impacto que tuvieron en mi vida, lonque me inspiraron”, les dice Parker a sus míticos compañeros del Big 3.
Y, de paso, competitivo, informa que Manu le está ganando al tenis! 😂 #MerciTony
Para la eternidad. #Big3 #Spurs #Tim #Manu #Tony 🇺🇸🇦🇷🇫🇷🙌💪❤️🏀
Tremenda afirmación de Duncan que marca lo que bancó Parker. Pop fue mas duro con él que con Manu!! Y eso no es poco decir luego de lo que MG hizo “renegar” al DT. TP9 aguantó, escuchó, aprendió y creció hasta ser el armador de cuatro campeonatos!! 🙌👏

A thread on George Galloway, #georgegalloway his comments about #Spurs and #Israel, and his sacking by @talkRADIO. What surprised me, but l shouldn’t have, are those who feel that he was somehow a victim of those who seek to shutdown free-speech.1/
This is so wide of the mark it’s untrue.

People know that Spurs fans have been the victims of racist abuse for years. Spurs have always had a ‘relatively’ large Jewish following, and other clubs started to use the racial slur as far back as the 60s & 70s to insult Spurs fans2/
As an Arsenal fan? who attended throughout the years which coincided with the appalling rise of racism in football, directed at black players. I also had to witness horrendous antisemitic abuse around me directed to our rival club Spurs. 3:
