Re: Futbol 2020-21

i am essentially for a significant rehash of UEFA football, but the NBA system is the worst possible model. the national leagues are the most senseless competitions in existence - at least in the balkans / eastern europe - and we definitely need either some kind of a regional fusion or the division...

Re: Futbol 2020-21

oh it seems the most probable scenario is marsch to rats if nagelsmann leaves, he has actually said he'd want to ... since he's a more energetic guy this might work well. so that all depends on bayern now. they won't want erik ten hag, who snubbed them a couple of years ago but now has reached the ...

Re: Futbol 2020-21

Reading Marsch's wiki page, I didnt realize he was assistant coach at Leipzig under Rangnick, interesting. He has had huge success at NYRB and Salzburg. Interesting guy, Princeton grad. I havent heard his name linked with any top jobs.

Re: Futbol 2020-21

Thanks Lutz Yeah I was going mention Marsch but didnt know if you had any familiarity with Austrian League. Looks like Salzburg is top. I dont know anything about Marsch personally. I havent heard his name mentioned in connection with the Spurs job but he's an interesting candidate.

Re: Futbol 2020-21

Lutz, given that you are in the unique position of being intimately familiar with all three of the RB coaching tree currently linked to Spurs coaching vacancy: Hasenhüttl, Nagelsmann, and Rangnick, and given that you are as familiar as I with what he would have to work with on the roster, whom do yo...

Re: Futbol 2020-21

but what most American fans of European soccer like are the differences between the NFL/NBA/MLB not the similarities. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2021/apr/21/european-super-league-reaction-us-fans American fans love European football precisely because it isn’t like US sport by Dave Caldwel...

Re: Futbol 2020-21

Outside of the Super Bowl, which most casual and non casual fans watch for the spectacle and commercials and not necessarily for the onfield product which is usually poor, the most popular sports event every year for casual sports fans is the NCAA basketball tournament. The reason is a) the format -...

Re: Futbol 2020-21

so i've been asking myself if and how the €$£ might actually work as a product. i guess the rough idea is what works for the nba? but the nba is heroball in a way football will never be (and i've no idea anyway who wants to see all those endless totally inconsequential main season games). actually ...

Re: Futbol 2020-21

what's also funny is that the premier league is such a fine product these days (with e.g. ancelotti, bielsa coaching in the supposed alsorans, with constant challengers to the top 6, with so many storylines developing), that they could milk it for years to come to everyone's (fans and capitalists a...

Re: Futbol 2020-21

At a volcanic press conference, Uefa bigwig Aleksander Ceferin could scarcely contain his fury as he attacked “the snakes” who had “spat in the face” of his organisation. While he had plenty of ire to go around, the brunt of it was reserved for United chief suit Edward Woodward and his former frien...

Re: Futbol 2020-21

too much happening, cant really process it all. I am totally against any Super League and probably my interest in Spurs will wane out of sheer boredom. If this happens, what will Spurs be playing for? Six matches into the season, their title campaign will be effectively over, they'll be banned from ...
