#AUSvUSA Gustavsson praises @TheMatildas for withstanding @USWNT: “We had 600 passes to 320 passes, we won 70% of tackles tonight in one-to-one duels; the individual defending was brilliant.”…

The OlyWhites are underway in Kashima. Could be a big night for @TheNZTeam if they can grab a win against Honduras #football #Tokyo2020
Bugger. Considering how immense Reid was in the last game, that is a hammer blow. The captain comes off inured with what looks to be a knee injury #football #Tokyo2020
“The Hondurans will look to strike while the iron is relatively warm here,” says the commentator.

Luckily for the OlyWhites, striking irons that aren’t hot is a fruitless task #football #Tokyo2020

🧵I love #football

Have done since the 1980's ⚽️

Nowadays though, the off-field stuff seems to get as much coverage & column inches as the game itself 🗞️📺📱

Competition isn't just about trophies - it's about eyeballs, soft power, geo-politics, PR and #money

Quick tale...
Did you see that news report from the #US this week about the #billionaire financier #TomBarrack being arrested? ($250m bail)

In the weird (but fun) world we live in, that incident ties to #NewcastleUnited & the #PremierLeague

Say what?! 🧐

#FollowTheMoney #Networks #Power 💸
We have;

- Billionaires acting as back-channel diplomats (💰)
- Political actors orchestrating things but pretending they're not
- Qatar buy rights to #EPL for region
- Saudi pirate them #AJ #BeIn #BeOut
- SA try to buy NUFC
- Qatar say "No Way"

#Rights ✍️/👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

Can you predict the final standings of the upcoming Super League Season 21/22?

Challenge SwissFootyBot with your own season prediction and win big!


#SuperLeague #Tippspiel #predictiongame #football
The prediction of SwissFootyBot is based on our own prediction model, which takes into account almost 2'000 Super League matches.

But I'm sure you know better, right? Best three players can win 200 CHF. Good luck! Image
First predictions in. That was fast 😮

FC Basel gets more credit, that was expected. The model probably underestimates the Sforza factor, but we will see. Maybe there is a Degen factor, too 😂

Will be interesting to see the averages at the end...

Reflections on last night: #eng #racism

We did an incredible job getting to the final, scenes not seen for a generation. A diverse team championing what England aspires to be, a progressive collective moving toward a shared goal. Each earning more than their keep.
I applaud each of them, but special mention must go to @BukayoSaka87 , @MarcusRashford, and @Sanchooo10 who have not only represented a community of people under duress from common people and elites alike, but shown that ascendence to greatness is individual.
Reading the words of @GarethSouthgate from earlier this year, it is clear that the @England team is very much forward-thinking in tackling #racism and he, himself, a great and empathetic leader, is forthright in tackling, against potential anger, this great cause.

⚽️You've probably heard "#ItsComingHome!" being thrown around recently by English football fans in the lead up to Monday's @EURO2020 Grand Final between England and Italy.

Our experts discuss the #grandfinal, #sportsscience and #soccer's role in culture and society. A thread.
“The grand final will reinforce the idea that Aus is being left behind. The game will provide us with a glimpse of what the #postpandemic world sport will look like: vaccinated populations going back to life as usual." Dr Steve Georgakis. @Bizani
“Soccer is a very popular sport in Australia, with over 1 million adults and just under 700,000 kids under 14 in Australia playing it. Women and girls comprise 30% of soccer players in Australia." Dr Lindsey Reece. @LindseyReece28 #WomensSport

A 🧵 on some lessons from Jose Mourinho 👇

I’d recently watched an episode from a Netflix Original series called The Playbook, where in which popular and successful coaches from all sorts of sports share the rules they live by to achieve success in sports and in life. (1/23)
The episode that stood out to me the most was arguably the one of Jose Mourinho, not only due to my love for ⚽️, but also my admiration for him as an individual and a coach.

The following tweets are some of the takeaways and lessons from his rules for life and coaching. (2/23)

Mourinho was promoted to Head Coach at Porto in 2002-03. A team, which at the time required a massive overhaul and rebuild due to there being no clear vision in the team, and most of all no passion to win. (3/23)

Small cap/high growth seems to THE obvious way to riches - right.

But how do we actually find them?

🧵 So, I've been reporting on lower-league Bulgarian football, mostly played in villages and little towns, for about a year now.

🇧🇬 Here are some pictures and stories about small communities who love this game more than anything.
Valkosel is home to about 2700 people. For decades, the symbols of this village were tobacco and football. Now, it's just football. Here plays the team of "Strela" (Arrow). The population is mostly Muslim unlike the rest of the country. But the game brings people together.
Valkosel's stadium is nicknamed "The Cage". You can see why. Hundreds of people attend every game, even during the pandemic when they weren't allowed inside the ground. Not the friendliest atmosphere for a visiting side.

Dans une ligne défensive et à chaque instant il faut toujours avoir 2 profils : le leader de la ligne, et le marqueur de la hauteur de la ligne. Dans certains cas, ces 2 profils peuvent être incarnés par le même joueur. THREAD ⤵️
#Tactics #football
Le marqueur de la hauteur est le joueur qui va marquer la hauteur de la ligne, avec lequel les autres joueurs de la ligne défensive doivent s'aligner, c'est en général le joueur du côté du ballon, situé dans le funnel défensif et proche de la ligne de sécurité. ⤵️ Image
Le leader de la ligne, est le joueur qui va ordonner les mouvements de la ligne et va définir le marqueur de hauteur. C'est le joueur qui a le meilleur champ de vision dans l'action, il est en général l'axial du côté opposé du jeu. ⤵️

Yesterday was another crazy day for #Football & specifically in this case, for #Derby #dcfcfans

#EFL ruling on their accounting practices

Threat of sanctions - What will that mean?

#RichardKeough ruling - They have to pay him £2.3m (bonkers episode)🤯…
Then add in the farce of the #takeover process

A 29 year old front-man masquerading as an Instagram Billionaire (complete with macho boxing backstory & links to Indonesian investors & looted billions) #Suharto

I'm equally fascinated & frustrated by rogue investors in #EnglishFootball

I've read widely and spoken to people with genuine knowledge of the machinations of global finance💸

What puzzles me today is, how/why did #MelMorris get himself in this hole?😏

"Plans for the elitist, money-grabbing league were unveiled Sunday night, triggering universal condemnation and galvanizing #fans against the 12 owners who proposed the tone-deaf breakaway."… #johnhenry #LIVERPOOL #Boston
1/ "The #SuperLeague collapsed under the weight of its own greed less than 48 hours after it was introduced, & Henry posted an apology video hours later in which he said, “The project put forward was never going to stand without the support of the fans....'"
2/ '...No one ever thought differently in #England. Over these 48 hours you were very clear that it would not stand. We heard you. I heard you.'”

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
