Once there’s no data/history on Pirlo’s possible coaching style as Juve’s manager, I decided to pick up his book and give it a read. Hoping it would give me more insight into what kind of manager he’ll be.

I’ll be posting my updates here for anyone interested. #Pirlo #juventus Image
Just a small note about me;

I’m currently reading a Masters of Science in Risk Management, and I’m writing my thesis on the governance and management of Football Clubs, by specifically researching the effects of sacking a manager in football.
My research is still ongoing, and I’m still not able to make soundc scientific conclusions on the subject of managerial changes in the industry (for now)

However, it seems Pirlo has the potential to be on the upside of the debate, and could potentially be a major sucess at Juve

This is the motivating story of Billionaire founder of #FedEx. Born in 1944, Fred Smith is crippled by a bone disease as a small boy & watches sports from the sidelines. Regains his health by age 10, becomes an excellent #football player & learns to fly at 15. (2/8)
Fred smith was in yale university & had an idea of overnight delivery service which was reliable. He had a great plan & wrote down the idea in great detail & presented the same to his professor. His professor gave him a 'C" for his submission. 3/8

This is the lovely Ian Golightly. He is one of the most committed members of the #ToonArmy I’ve ever known.

He has #Huntingtonsdisease and recently spent 2 weeks in hospital fighting #covid19

Ian was discharged to his nursing home after fighting back against this dreadful virus.

However, Ian is still fighting a chest infection and the combination of being so poorly and #Isolation means he is currently in a very very low place.

Due to his condition, Ian has few pleasures in life: namely, going to @NeuroDropIn, watching @NUFC (though sadly he can no longer make the trip to #StJamesPark) and playing scrabble/spend time with his friends.

Watching the #SCFC #QPR game back from yesterday and unsurprisingly, all of the back four have had an absolute shocker. Strap yourself in for some graphic content! There’s a lot of horrific defending to be analysed... (1/11)💀#stokecity #stoke #football #analysis
We start with the first #QPR goal. Things look good from here. Two banks of 4 and in a fairly decent shape. I’ve circled Smith but also look at Chester and BMI’s position in relation to Batth. Should give you a clue about what’s about to go down... (2/11)
Play develops and Smith is the free player. He has to block the pass behind the defence. It’s literally his only job here. His effort is weak. Chester and BMI are 5 yards behind Batth, allowing space for Hugill to move into. Butland not covered himself in glory either! (3/11)

📢 NEW - NSxG maps 📢

Time to introduce something I've been working on lately. It's called non-shot (NS) xG maps and they look like 👇

In this thread I'll try to explain what they are, why they're useful and how they can be used!

#xG #NSxG #football #data #analytics
@EveryTeam_Mark @MarkTaylor0 @Tussendelinies @tactipedia @Tacticsplatform @joe_mulberry @DanKennett @StatmanDave @elpivoteftbl @experimental361 Why do we need NSxG maps? NSxG maps can help speeding-up and improving the proces of video analysis.

Usually analysts watch hours of video footage, in order to understand how a certain team plays: how do they create dangerous attacks? Which players are most dangerous?
@EveryTeam_Mark @MarkTaylor0 @Tussendelinies @tactipedia @Tacticsplatform @joe_mulberry @DanKennett @StatmanDave @elpivoteftbl @experimental361 But what if we let the data tell us where to look?

▶️ Enter NSxG (or similar metrics like xT or PV)

By plotting in which area of the pitch a team makes their most valuable actions (mind you, we are not talking frequencies here!), we know where they get most dangerous from

#doping WADA CRC Committee Recommends Russia Face New Olympic Ban - brief thread @ThreadRe for #sportslaw students. Arguably the most interesting impact will be on Euro 2020 #football
#sportslaw think of WADA CRC Committee as the police; they have undertaken an exhaustive investigation of alleged conspiracy at RUSADA to manipulate data, leading to charges and possible 4 yrs suspension
#sportslaw the decision on whether to "prosecute" lies with WADA executive on 9 Dec. In the unlikely event that Russia accepts the ban, the matter can go to sport's "court" - the CAS, who will give a final decision (subject to oversight in the Swiss courts)

I don't know who created this funny Whatsapp forward that's spread like wildfire amongst people from #Kalimpong. But it has made me start a thread to share a few things you might not know about how my hometown in the hills celebrates our #IndependenceDay #FitinAugust #PondaAugus
While the rest of the country celebrates our #IndependenceDay on the 15th of August, we #Kalimpong folks need 3 WHOLE DAYS! If you gotta party, party like you mean it!

I don't think there's ever been a #FitinAugust celebration in #Kalimpong without the Singhi (Snow Lion) & Yak Dance presented by the Indo Tibetan Buddhist Cultural Institute, Kalimpong. #PondaAugus. #IndpendenceDay #15thAugust #India Photo Courtesy: Praveen Chettri

#kzoo2019 well @WestPoint_USMA were so anxious to talk, they just started on their own at 1328 sharp! Prof Rogers explains his cadets' "mission control center" or laboratory for #Military #History, working 8+ hrs/day on #medieval chronicles' paleography to #data mine 100yrs' war
Specifically looking for artillery information in skirmishes and sieges, to find what on the "laundry list" of sieges leads to #failure vs #success according to the #Database the cadets @WestPoint_USMA built collaboratively for the late #medieval & early #Renaissance. #kzoo2019
A small sample of the +90,000 #data entries - first up is Cadet Liam Kane with his findings on waging war by sieges vs by battles... taking #medieval #Military #History from generalizations to specifically-defined quantities... 47 battles to 134 sieges! #kzoo2019

Am I allowed to be outraged by this, or does that make me "antisemitic" ?

- Video of a Palestinian child being assaulted by Israeli police this morning.
By @syedakif17

Isreali goons dressed in uniforms violating basic human rights of Palestinians 24/7.

Constitution of Israel is based on Talmud where Goyims have no rights.

If a Zionist kill anyone, he's not to be punished, he's owns gentiles.

We believe #Abuja should have a modern #football club for everyone & we ’re making it happen with @AbujaMetroFC. This series of tweets highlights our 3-year start-up plan. #AbujaMetroFC @youriplawyer_ @dejigbenro @fchiejine @Suraj35766 @UucheGE @Donfiazo @ELEGBETE1
Our goal is to establish a modern football club that the entire Abuja Metropolis can embrace. Our vision is for #AbujaMetroFC to become a model professional football club and grow to compete at the highest level of association football.
With the tested & trusted #CommunityOwnership model. Anyone can become a co-owner of #AbujaMetroFC. We will not need money bags to start & grow our own football club, just a group of people making token contributions, which gives them a % of the ownership of the club.

#USSstrike #football STICKER THREAD ⚽

The Panini World Cup 2018 sticker album is horrifically expensive. I'm a cheapskate and I'm obsessed with pensions. Therefore I'm making the official #USSstrike sticker album.

#aesthetic #beetroot #aubergine #backofthenet
1/ First up is @MikeOtsuka. USA is not in the World Cup this year. So Mike will have to play for Panama.
2/ Next up is Bill Galvin, who has played for the following clubs: @DWP @TPRgovuk and USS. His position is DC. He is quite defensive about things. He plays for Switzerland because @UBS is just one letter away from USS.

Went to Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan today. Official population at 53,967, according to @UNHCR as of February 2018. All Syrian #refugees.

In many ways it was not what I expected.
First thing you notice is how remote the location is — some 100 kms east of Amman; 20 kms from Azraq town; 75 kms to Saudi Arabia; 255 kms to Iraq; and 90 kms to the Syrian border — from which its inhabitants fled.
At the same time, the harshness of the setting — a hardscrabble, sprawling 15 square km patch, scratched, etched and stretched out of endless rolling desert.

The perimeter was equally formidable, with security fencing, official patrols, check points and razor wire.
