There are new pathogens in our midst.

My latest article about media #manipulators, velocity #hacking, and the latest Covid origin #controversy.

How much should we think about the role of information in society?

In this article, I use the recent media coverage surrounding #lableak versus #zoonosis to point toward a new threat we have not yet wrapped our heads around:

Information pathogens with high #velocity. Image
#Velocity is a metric for the transmission efficacy of information given a particular content payload, its viral packaging, and its host environment.

Basically the R0 of information, a measure of #contagiousness.

Info pathogens with high velocity outcompetes good information. Image

Thread: Eddie Howe penetrates Pep Guardiola's tactical scheme

Each tactical approach has pros and cons when you determine to apply it, a lot of people praised Guardiola's ideas in the build-up phase, especially with the 2-3-5 shape.

Eddie chose to apply high & mid-press and mark the ball-holder and the options for the pass, so Pep lost his progression phase.

Thread: Reasons why Barcelona struggled against Rayo Vallecano with Iraola tactics.

Andoni Iraola was one of my favourite coaches last season, due to his variety and solid tactics, especially in counter-pressing and medium press.

Let's see 👇
-Iraola relied on 4-4-2 flat, with medium pressing, every option to pass in Barcelona build-up marked by a player from Rayo.
-2 vs 1, the situation which happened when Gavi, received the ball, repeated a lot in the middle third, with well-positioned from Rayo players and cover the passing options

Aspect Analysis: Guiding the opponent while pressing

- wide areas
- centre
- advantages & disadvantages

#Pressing #Tactics #Liverpool #ManCity

[THREAD] Image
When pressing, most teams try to guide the opponent to a specific area of the pitch to eventually win the ball there and transition to create chances.
Normally, there is a distinction between forcing the opponent building-up through the wide areas or the centre. Both ways have advantages and disadvantages, which I'm going to analyse in this thread.

Tactical Theory: The various ways to attract pressure in possession

- accessing space in between the lines
- getting in behind
- creating a free man

@SundayShare10 #SundayShare #Tactics

Major aims in possession are getting in between the lines of the opponent and in behind. However, that’s what most defensive sides try to restrict by using a compact block with little space in between the lines and or a deep block to make it difficult to get in behind.
Defensive sides are getting better and better and offensive sides continuously fail to crack compact and or deep blocks. One way to access space in between the lines or in behind is by intentionally attracting pressure.

This thread analyses the various ways to lure pressure.

- defensive aspects

#SundayShare @SundayShare10 #Tactics

Diagonality is from immense importance in nearly every phase of the game, but still often undervalued.

This thread analyses the importance of diagonality both in and out of possession.
Offensive aspects:

To begin with, let's have a look on passing. There is usually a distinction between three types of passes: horizontal passes, vertical passes, and diagonal passes.

Of the increasing number of initiatives setting out in recent years to challenge heteronormativity in education, the 2006-2009 No Outsiders project has arguably been one of the #MostInfluential

Conducted across 15 primary schools in England, No Outsiders was an action research project that sought to disrupt heteronormativity through critical pedagogy, gaining widespread academic and media attention in the process
In spite of its prominence, though, there has been a lack of research exploring the ways in which #children have incorporated this work into their everyday understandings and doings of #gender and #sexuality.

Match Analysis: How Conte beat Guardiola

• defensive setup
• ManCity’s wing play
• Kane’s masterclass

#MCITOT #Tottenham #Tactics #SundayShare

Tottenham started the game pretty well in their basic 3-4-3 shape. ManCity wanted to press them in an aggressive 4-2-3-1. De Bruyne as the 10 marked the ball-near 6 and the ball-far winger tucked in to the ball-far 6.
But this wasn’t always executed well at the beginning. The ball-far winger didn’t tuck in enough at times. Moreover, the pressure on Tottenham’s back line wasn’t high enough. Therefore, Tottenham was able to switch the play and access the open space ball-far.

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. ⤵️

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
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

Thread > Temporary public realm changes: 10-point checklist

How can spaces adapt for the new normal?

A challenge for local authorities and others, for legal and planning frameworks, and creativity in re-imagining hidden and underused spaces.

Thanks to @DrSDMillington (1/12)
1. #Safety

Barriers between people and traffic need careful consideration - TFL research suggests removing some barriers can promote safer and slower driving.

Where possible, it may be safer to close streets to traffic.

(TFL research:…)
2. #Adaptability

A key quality of Tactical Urbanism - to ensure places can adapt to changing trading conditions and help manage other potential disruptions to high streets

e.g. 2m social distancing - how quickly could infrastructure be reconfigured if guidance changes?
