Football Must Mean More

No other sport has the wealth or cultural significance that football has. It is the largest social phenomenon on the planet, more than just business, entertainment, or escapism from our daily lives. It is one of the few forces that can unify in a world where race, gender and religion divide. It can offer opportunities to those who have nothing otherwise. But the truth which many have become accustomed to accepting is that, like society, football doesn’t work for the half the world.

FCN win derby battle

Lyngby BK and FC Nordsjælland clashed on Friday evening for an important derby. Both teams have underperformed this season; with only two games of the Superliga’s preliminary phase remaining, Lyngby sat second bottom in the table, with Nordsjælland only one position higher. A win would take Nordsjælland into the top half, and, crucially, out of the relegation fight.

Foxes outwit Wolves

Two teams seeking to disrupt the status-quo of the ‘big six’ in the Premier League met on Sunday afternoon at the King Power Stadium. Both sides have seemingly aimed to control more possession this season as the next stage in their evolution.

Merseyside Derby stalemate inches Liverpool closer to title

The first week of the Premier League’s return culminated at Goodison Park with the Merseyside derby. Everton looked to continue their upward trend with Carlo Ancelotti from before the season’s suspension, whereas Klopp’s Reds were looking to maintain their impressive unbeaten derby record, and with a win, would move three points away from becoming champions.

An Exceptional Game Model (Including Generic Theory and Lessons)

On December 2nd, 2018, Holstein Kiel travelled to MSV Duisburg and convincingly won 4-0. Last season, under the command of Tim Walter (now the coach of VfB Stuttgart), Kiel gained popularity as a high-pressing, possession-hungry side, using a variety of unique actions and structures not used by other teams. Kiel were identified as promotion candidates, but inconsistency lead to a 6th place finish. Amid this inconsistency though, were games where their approach couldn’t have been much better, with their win against Duisburg perhaps being the best example.
