Galatasaray vs Basaksehir in Turkey

Fredrik Gulbrandsen- he scored the sole goal. This was a battle but the absence of Muslera was telling in this goal, his reaction speed and organization to the defense was absent. A tough lose but Galatasaray is banged up.

PSG vs Lille in France

Keylor Navas save- The save was short distance, navas is the true advantage psg need going forward especially since the defensive setup from tuchel is weak
https://www.weibo.com/tv/v/IhtgMnWFs?fid=1034:4441640832577629

Mauro Icardi goal- Gueye's role in this team is priceless. He allows better midfield control. He does not speed up midfield which is what neymar want but he gives greater steel.  Neymar has been magic this match, the speed of passing must increase.
https://www.weibo.com/tv/v/Ihthp8iv0?fid=1034:4441641097078058

Angel Di MAria goal- the two fouls , one on neymar and the other on draxler or another player, did not get a retroactive card after the goal. play continued doesn't mean the prior action is forgotten, that has to stop. NEymar could had been hurt in that tackle.

Tottenham hotspur vs West Ham in england

Mourinho end match 1 - the goal is to win but the players have to have that culture in them
https://www.weibo.com/tv/v/IhAAC3t28?fid=1034:4441921737941194

Mourinho end match 2 - son and delli ali and kane will probably be the best recepients, Mourinho isn't interested in impressing people beyond trophies lifted
https://www.weibo.com/tv/v/IhACn7Vv4?fid=1034:4441922971079228

Goal Highlights Tottenham -Tottenham are one of the top athletic sides in the epl, they remind me a lot to the side mourinho first constructed at chelsea. full of true athletes who can play. Mourinho will focus on exploiting that athleticism but he will also , get them to stop defending like first learners. I notice tottehnahm on defense tend to collapse, notkeep their structure, that will change, Mouirnho will get the players to comprehend defensive spacing better. I think in the end mourinho wanted to be near family, in london. If he goes on to a great era with tottenham then it must be said,that is a great accomplishment, nothing has happened now, but imagine if this match was the beginning of a trophy laden era for tottenham, that will be two london clubs mourinho brought into the tophied land. I do not know about champions league glory, it seems mourinho needs to be in the latin leagues for that.

UEFA champions league 11-26-2019 #UEFACL

 

Galatasaray vs Club Brugge

The goal from KRepin Diatta was the balance of the game. The goal scorer, diatta forgot about his prior yellow card and in taking off his shirt acquired a second yellow. The thoughtlessness from both teams led to their play in this match.

 

P.S.G. vs Real Madrid

Karim Benzema goal- PSG defensively are a liability, I said this before and continue to say it, that Tuschel or EMri , structures do not have good defensive posturings and it showed. Real Madrid cut through PSG and psg showed its defensive frailties. MBappe is a very dangerous scorer but he is not a talisman. Yes he runs well up and down the flanks but Mbappe's play is best for the counterattack and Tuschel has PSG playing a faux possession style, where psg do not hold possession but only use it to attack, thus they play an open style that suits real madrid best will neymar come in the second half?
https://www.weibo.com/tv/v/Ii5dVbtD7?fid=1034:4443099565366853

Varane Own goal- this mistake put PSG back into the match. All varane had to do was kick it away and he didn't. The desire to impress is the problem in players.
https://www.weibo.com/tv/v/Ii5H8zqVy?fid=1034:4443117462422249

 

Sarabia goal- Neymar started this goal with a lovely hold up possession and passing in the middle of the storm, and then two dummies, one from mbappe and the second from neymar to sarabia, who scored.
https://www.weibo.com/tv/v/Ii5JjilU4?fid=1034:4443118850738839

 

Atletico MAdrid vs Juventus

Dybala goal- lovely set piece magic, trust an italian team, a grinding first half it came in as both of these saides tend to neutralize but like in many matches past, the offensive qualities in juventus players tends to give an edge to the italian side over my Atleti. But the second half awaits?
https://www.weibo.com/tv/v/Ii5l2C938?fid=1034:4443103139149600

 

Tottenham Hotspur vs Olympiakos

highlight- deli allie, serge aurier are both benefitting from mourinho, and mourinho loves harry kane.

Julia Wanjeri asked me to clarify what I meant using the following prose

I say this is an opportunity to redesign womens world cup qual. as well as confed. title journey in #CAf agree? I say change to mirror the conmebol mens system. agree?

https://twitter.com/jwanjeri/status/1200745066173812738

My Clarification- I admit beforehand I was purposefully vague 

 In the beautiful game, flag play has many qualification systems to the world cup of confederation cup play. The cup of nations, the euros, the gold cup, the various world cup qualifiers. Of all the confederation cup tournaments or world cup qualifiers in the men's or women's game, which is the most fair or opportune?  

 It is the conmebol men's world cup qualifiers.  

 Currently, as of this writing, the CAF women's cup of nations has a problem finding a host to the tournament.  As I alluded, this is an opportunity to overhaul the world cup qualification format as well as the CAF women's cup of nations format.  

 How?  

 The process I suggest is a repeat for the cup of nations as well as the world cup qualifiers.

CAF has five sub confederations. Each sub confederation can become a round robin table like in the men's conmebol world cup qualifier. In two calendar years each table will have a champion, one for the south/east/west/central/north, and the champions will play in a five team round robin with each other, ending in a ranked table. The variance between the cup of nations and the world cup will be that for the cup of nations the team atop the champions table will be champions of CAF. While for the world cup qualifiers, currently the top three teams in the champions table will make it into the world cup. I know FIFA wants to advance the number of teams which may mean CAF may get five slots and possibly more slots in the future. If five slots, then all five champions make it into the world cup. If less than five slots, then the top "number currently three" get in, if more than five then the top slots determine the order of the remainders. So, for example, if the champions table ends, from first to fifth: west/central/south/east/north. Then slots six to ten are the second placed teams from the same sub confederation: 2nd place west/central/south/east/north this adds value to where the teams place. in the championship table in the world cup qualification.  

 Now, what does my proposed system solve?  

 First, it ends the need of a host. In my view, some countries not wanting to host demands a system where no one is asked to host. If hosting the caf women's cup of nations had value throughout CAF then a host would never be in doubt.  

 Second, while more important, my system makes the caf womens cup of nations or world cup qualifiers harder flag team test than anything in the men's or women's game in FIFA. In four years', time each women's flag team in CAF has two long marathons, that will test their players/coaches/fans/organization. The best teams get two long marathons and at least one shorter marathon at most two shorter marathon that will be an undeniable proof that they are worthy champions OR the best preparation to enter the world cup.  

 Third, this will reduce costs for all the lower ranked teams. Lower ranked teams may take many iterations before they ever reach a champions table. Thus, their matches will be regional, no long-distance travel. That saves money. No more worries about complicated traveling arrangements or fees, as every match is in a round robin setting.  

 ... I do not have the power or influence to demand or implement my suggestion instantaneously. But this is a moment for all fans to women's soccer in CAF to consider a new system, one that not only deletes a hindrance no longer, but one that improves the opportunity aside the challenge in the caf region in the women's game beyond all other women's systems in other confederations. 

 It's time for Africa.

Richard Murray Thoughts Round 4 https://www.kobo.com/us/en/audiobook/richard-murray-thoughts-round-4-1

 

-----------------------------------

Title: Introduction
Good Morning , Good afternoon, or Good evening, wherever you are listening, I am Richard Murray and welcome to this audio edition to my thoughts. Remember, to click the link in the description of this edition to view the transcript, that has links to everything I refer OR to send me a message about a topic you want to hear in the future.


-----------------------------------------
Title: dialogs side phil schoen or mike fuentes

I had a dialog side Phil schoen < https://twitter.com/PhilSchoen > that I connected to another dialog side mike fuentes < https://twitter.com/mikefountains > concerning punditry. The link to the messages or content is in the transcript but I wanted to convey the ideas.
Phil schoen's position to my query of womens or lesser known mens soccer teams having social places online that are not active is... that they are a good investment in terms of outreach or audience, but the financial costs is to the club. Mike Fuentes suggested,I am paraphrasing not quoting so please use the link in the transcript, that punditry is entertainment. While I concur, punditry as a form of entertainment is managed to have a certain set of normals that are not always in the interest to the sport but in the advertisers or sponsors or media concerns agenda. When france won the world cup, a coach from holland suggested that he was not impressed by the manner in which the french team won the world cup. Clarence seedorf, a fellow dutchman sat next to him, and was gentle or not negative in reaction but was clearly not in agreement to suggesting that any team who wins the world cup is unimpressive in the way they play. But the negative pundit reaction to france winning was about agenda? France's ligue 1 is not the top in uefa and not the best for chinese or statian , meaning from the united states of america, players to come to and thrive historically. So, many media concerns do not want a light on france that is positive. CR7 or Messi have had various media issues but neymar is the pantomime criminal , even when unwarranted. This is based on the huge amount of media investments that do not want to see the cr7 /messi era dwindle and see neymar as a problem in that setup. In parallel many clubs do not want neymar/mbappe to remain together in psg as that would mean the top two global stars play on the same team in the same league and have utter dominance, thus many non french media outlets emphasize schism between neymar/mbappe. Now, all this can be entertaining or is entertaining but the generation of it is not to entertain but to mold the environment.
Always suggest offering questions to phil scheon or mike fuentes, they are good for an answer.

Title: Mark Sampson

Mark Sampson , former england womens coach, was fired after racist language. I do not know what he said exactly, but Lianne Sanderson's reply said it best.
Begin her quote
Something I forgave but will never forget. I hate that this is resurfacing again but again all you can do is be honest and continue to live your life.  Hence the fact I chose to not go to Wembley. I’ve seen SOME of the girls and have no problem but this still upsets me now.
End her quote
I consider her words balanced, and I quote my amendment to her words
Begin quote
just because a person does not respond with violence in response does not mean they will act ignorant in the future
End quote
negative Bias is older than humanity and will outlast it. In the end, i do not see a way to eradicate it, but for those trying to make it small, it will take a long process for that, especially based on the events that made modern humanity. To reply peacefully one must reply honest and live one's life, but sooner or later some will choose to reply unpeacefully.

------------------------------------
Title: Black Coaches in white leagues
One of the problems in humanity is the idea that ownerships monoracial demographics do not influence labors demographics. To place it bluntly, those who own reflect their demography in their workers. In humanity, men are the owners usually, the world of sport reflects this as most sport team owners are males. In modern humanity, most owners in any country represent the majority phenotypical race. So, in nigeria or south africa, black african countries, most sport team owners are black africans. In egypt or morocco, mostly mulatto or arab african countries, most owners are mulatto or arab african.  In england/usa/brasil/china, white countries, most sport team owners are white. Whether white european/white north american/white south american /white asian respectively. And, no illegality or criminality exist in said truth.
It is no negativity for a country mostly white to have mostly white ownership. The problem is, if non whites<black/mulatto or arab/mestizo> are supposed to be free in countries mostly white, then where does their ownership reside? Where do black britons own in the sporting landscape of U.K.? where do Black americans own in the sporting landscape of USA or BRazil ? Where do Black asian owners,black is phenotypical and in this case skin color, own in the sporting landscape of China/Japan?
The article linked in the transcript asks the question to black coaching in the soccer world in the usa, but to me the question of the black owner in the soccer world in the usa, answers the coaching question. If you have more black owners, you will have more black coaches. Look at the confederation of african football or the caribbean football union, each suborganization under fifa is full from black owners, and thus black coaches to their clubs.
The article linked gives forced opportunity to black coaches in white owned teams as the answer, but my answer requires no enforcement, make it where black owners can arrive and the coaches/trainers/administrators et cetera will follow. The proof to my position is in the confederation of african football or the caribbean football union. In both regions under fifa, black owners or coaches are in high percentages. What is the point, they prove the more black owners exist in any region, the more every role in a soccer team will be fufilled by black people.
The system of FIFA already allows all phenotypical races their own tables, they do not need a seat at the white table in the usa/uk/france or other. Now, if non whites with money are not interested in improving their tables, that is their problem, but it is not the problem to whites.
In Amendment
I asked the following
If more black owners existed would more black coaches exist?
the replies I got were mixed. Some said, that black owners are not bound to help or give opportunity to black people.
Some said yes, if more black owners then by default more black opportunity. The views ended in the middle ground.

Congo pulls out and south africa rejects hosting the afircan womens cup of nations. I think this is a good moment to change the competition to champion of CAF in the womens game.

Julia Wanjeri asked me to clarify , and I wrote the following

In the beautiful game, flag play has many qualification systems to the world cup of confederation cup play. The cup of nations, the euros, the gold cup, the various world cup qualifiers. Of all the confederation cup tournaments or world cup qualifiers in the men's or women's game, which is the most fair or opportune?  

 It is the conmebol men's world cup qualifiers.  

 Currently, as of this writing, the CAF women's cup of nations has a problem finding a host to the tournament.  As I alluded, this is an opportunity to overhaul the world cup qualification format as well as the CAF women's cup of nations format.  

 How?  

 The process I suggest is a repeat for the cup of nations as well as the world cup qualifiers.

CAF has five sub confederations. Each sub confederation can become a round robin table like in the men's conmebol world cup qualifier. In two calendar years each table will have a champion, one for the south/east/west/central/north, and the champions will play in a five team round robin with each other, ending in a ranked table. The variance between the cup of nations and the world cup will be that for the cup of nations the team atop the champions table will be champions of CAF. While for the world cup qualifiers, currently the top three teams in the champions table will make it into the world cup. I know FIFA wants to advance the number of teams which may mean CAF may get five slots and possibly more slots in the future. If five slots, then all five champions make it into the world cup. If less than five slots, then the top "number currently three" get in, if more than five then the top slots determine the order of the remainders. So, for example, if the champions table ends, from first to fifth: west/central/south/east/north. Then slots six to ten are the second placed teams from the same sub confederation: 2nd place west/central/south/east/north this adds value to where the teams place. in the championship table in the world cup qualification.  

 Now, what does my proposed system solve?  

 First, it ends the need of a host. In my view, some countries not wanting to host demands a system where no one is asked to host. If hosting the caf women's cup of nations had value throughout CAF then a host would never be in doubt.  

 Second, while more important, my system makes the caf womens cup of nations or world cup qualifiers harder flag team test than anything in the men's or women's game in FIFA. In four years', time each women's flag team in CAF has two long marathons, that will test their players/coaches/fans/organization. The best teams get two long marathons and at least one shorter marathon at most two shorter marathon that will be an undeniable proof that they are worthy champions OR the best preparation to enter the world cup.  

 Third, this will reduce costs for all the lower ranked teams. Lower ranked teams may take many iterations before they ever reach a champions table. Thus, their matches will be regional, no long-distance travel. That saves money. No more worries about complicated traveling arrangements or fees, as every match is in a round robin setting.  

 ... I do not have the power or influence to demand or implement my suggestion instantaneously. But this is a moment for all fans to women's soccer in CAF to consider a new system, one that not only deletes a hindrance no longer, but one that improves the opportunity aside the challenge in the caf region in the women's game beyond all other women's systems in other confederations.

 It's time for Africa.

weekend 12-1-2019 #gladbach #galatasaray #atleti

 

Borussia Gladbach vs SC Frieburg in Germany - it is not even halfway through the season. But I have boasted to gbayern munich fans about this season like gladbach won it. All I can do is hope gladbach can make it to the end of the season. Gladbach not dortmund was the last true competitor to bayern, that was in the 1970s but it happened. It will be work but this season may be the greatest gladbach season in memory.

End game- celebrating success

Highlights- 4-3 top of the table, love fohlen ,

Galatasaray vs TRabzonspor in Turkey - good draw, the season is long in turkey, after watching quite a few seasons following gladbach i do not let positions before three quarters of the season is done. Yuto nagatomo did well with this draw which was great for the long term needs.

Alexander Sorloth- the header movement is lovely, look at the reply, how he bends in the air

Yuto Nagatomo- a needed goal, good attentiveness , I remember yuto from Inter Milan. Always trying his best.

FC BArcelona vs Atletico MAdrid- my atleti lost 1-0 but it was a great battle. Atleti this season are the most determined to be an attacking side not a counterattacking side. But, this team still needs massaging from defense to attack. The reality is, media pundits have a way of demanding teams who use a certain level of money or have achieved a certain level of consistency play an attacking style. I don't think Simeone is convinced that an attacking style is best suited but he is trying harder than prior seasons, when he chose to place atleti into safe hands defensively. I do not demand atleti win anything, I demand a side that has an idea that plays it out. I think the demand to win trophies is a dysfunctional desire for any team and why so many big money teams make foolish choices. be stable and keep trying, sooner or later, trophies will come. Sport is not war.

Julia Wanjeri asked , Where again is the money to pull a round-robin all the way? Which are these African FAs that are willing to pump the amount of money that this requires into their WNTs?

https://twitter.com/jwanjeri/status/1201405152370053126

 

The issue is not merely where money will come from but how money can be saved.

What are the costs to flag play? players/coaches/trainers or staff/travel expenses/pitches

If a football association want to save cost as a primary action while implementing my proposed system then

  • Players- do not get paid for playing
  • Coaches/trainers- do not get paid for coaching or training
  • Medics- get paid
  • Travel- players will have to pay to get to the locations or will have their travel paid for nby some outside group.
  • Pitches- Football associations can make a penalty system. The concept is simple, you already have pitches, each pitch in the top two tier are viable. One by one must be used as a ground, but be in a certain condition, if the pitch isn't all the teams in the top two tier are fined. This will mean, every team in the top two tier will have to add one game every two season for the womens national team, where they maintain the pitch and pay for ball boys and other pitch activities
  • Referees are paid by CAF.

The first questions are obvious, If players demand payment or coaches demand payment or travel pay, then what will happen? They will not play for a Football association that uses my financial suggestion to partake in my proposed structure to womens flag play in caf. The clubs will fall in line based on the fine, and they will offer pitches to play for the flag teams. The football associations have to pay the medics. Now what happens when no players or coaches are present, then the flag forfeits the match and they earn a lose. What if both teams do not show up, then both teams earn a lose.  The goal of the system isn't enforcement, it is raising opportunity or challenge. If mauritius/comoros/togo/mauretania side others do not have players/coaches available for play then they will forfeit, and earn a lose. The key is , none are being denied opportunity and the challenge is high.  Venezuelan mens soccer in conmebol is the best living example. This is a baseball country that for years played less than amateur players at times, against the likes of brazil or argentina. Decades of unconcern. But, eventually, Venezuelans got into the administration, and said they wanted to do better and they did and now, venezuela is still a bottom team but they are doing better than years past. IT is a slow process to get better.

 

Let us say, for example, I am the president of one of the following football associations, Comoros/Sao Tome and Principe/seychelles/guinea-bissau . I have no money for womens soccer. I can not pay for coaches/players/trainers/medics. I may not even have a stadium to play in. What do I do? Well, first strike off all away matches. I can not pay for the travel. So, in fourteen member COSAFA , the team will have thirteen loses in the Cup of Nations subconfederation table and thirteen loses in the world cup qualifying subconfederation table. Now for the home matches, the answer is simple, free public tryouts. I suggest a goalkeeper/backup goalkeeper/four defender/a backup defender/four midfielder/a backup midfielder/two forward/ a backup forward. The tryouts can be based on simplest athletic or skill ability, speed/strength/number of times a player can keep a ball bouncing. Me and the other administrators can do this. The selected players choose who to be their player/coach. Two days later, they play. Is this the best possible format for an football association to work, absent money? yes. Soccer as a sport started with non paid players, playing on rough pot holled pitches. Some how people have forgotten that or made that seem backward, but the goal is not to play on the bernebau pitch, the goal is to play as best you can, no complaints.

 

I do not know if Julia will read this or any other, but the problem isn't money with my system. I repeat, my system gives opportunity to all but also challenges all, not just players or coaches but administrations to be better. And if they fail that is fine, they can fail for decades, the opportunity will always be open for them to improve. And, eventually, as in conmebol mens worst performing teams, they will improve over time.

 

The following link lead to the post where I state my case for a round robin for womens flag play in CAF that Julia queried

Richard Murray Thoughts Round 5 https://www.kobo.com/us/en/audiobook/richard-murray-thoughts-round-5-1

Title: Introduction
Good Morning , Good afternoon, or Good evening, wherever you are listening, I am Richard Murray and welcome to this audio edition to my thoughts.

Title: CAF round robin part 2
In round four of this sports blog , I spoke about a dialog between myself side Julia Wanjeri speaking on my thoughts for the confederation of african football , who are unable to find a host for next years womens cup of nations, so i suggested using the conmebol mens flag systems as a guide
In part 2, I will speak about my reply to her query to money. Remember the full reply is linked in the text transcript to this round, linked in the kobo description
Julia asked, where is the money to finance the round robin idea i suggested in the last round. I miscomprehended her implications, she did not suggest that no money was present nor that he was ignorant to my suggestion but simply think it a terrible idea.
The following is my idea to financing my idea to round robining womens flag play in the confederation of african football
Begin quote

The issue is not merely where money will come from but how money can be saved.

End quote

... I do not have the financial power to make any changes I suggest. But, the current system clearly is dysfunctional for the womens game in C.A.F. If the system does not change, then the opportunity or challenge is not lessened, even if the current system allows a less embarassable view to CAF. But I am not embarassed by a football association in CAF using the cheapest means to be effective, it is better than doing nothing and the current system challenges most flags in C.A.F. to do nothing

Title:  The Local club
Hope Solo , the greatest goalkeeper of the usa womens national team, and a current pundit to beinsports usa, shared a great question on her twitter
The question asked , if you had the chance to revitalize a historic team , who among teams will it be?
I come from harlem in manhattan in new york city in new york state, as a black person, Harlem I grew up in had only one team in its history that was initiated, owned, controlled, populated by black people and that was the harlem rens. If I had money I would restart the harlem rens as an all athletic club, in the way they exist in germany or brasil.
what say you? Name a historic club you will restart or invest in if able.

-----------------------
Title: Balon D'or

Megan Rapinoe side Messi won the Balon d'or of ball of gold for 2019. I am an opponent to the balon d'or as I feel it is dysfunctional. If I had my rpeference I will delete it but even if it must be, my biggest issue is the dysfunctional aspect it has.
But to tackle the issue, the first point is determination. The question is, how can one player be determined to be better than all others in a team sport. The problem is no system exists that can provide a player who can not be contested. But the media thrives off of the contestability in picking a balon d'or.
I rephrase, the media, all concerns throughout humanity know people will have warranted contestations to whomever is picked, and thus use communication channels , like blogs/twitter feeds/et cetera to state their complaint or defense or case. sequentially make money for media concerns
The problem in using statistics is the team environment manipulate those statistics. If messi players for levante is he part of a trophy lifting team? The statistics messi earned is based on the quality he play aside. The problem in using team achievement is it is based on the team? If Rapinoe played for italy or ireland would she have such a huge online fanbase or had won world cups? The achievements she earned or the media sounding to her achievement is based on their team.
When Leicester city won the epl, Ngolo kante/jamie vardy/mahrez/kasper schemichel/wes morgan/shinji okazaki were not lauded as loudly as van djik/allison/mane/firminho/salah/ in liverpool who won the uefa champions league. Why? liverpool has a larger media footprint than leicester city, but does that make liverpool's recent achievement in the uefa champions league greater than leicester city's winning the epl? Is Jamie Vardy's goals that season less value than salah or sadio mane's last season? Is Ngolo kante's assist or interceptions during leicester city's run less valuable than virgil van djjik's during liverpool's recent uefa champions league win.
But, if no method exists to determine one player is above all others , but the two balls of gold must be given, what is the solution? The solution is to focus what the ball of gold represents.
What factors do people look at in determining a players greatness in the beautiful game?
Trophies won with club or flag
statistics
on pitch persona
media strength
Trophies won with club or flag or statistics have trophies already. World cup trophy/Copa Libertadores trophy are examples of trophies players will get when they win for a club or country.
Statistics like scoring or saves or assist have the golden boot/golden glove/assist leader respectively .
What award exist for on pitch persona? none
What award exists for media strength? none
Sequentially, my solution is to focus the ball of gold awards to on pitch persona side media strength.
And if you take into account on pitch persona or media strength then messi side rapinoe are the undoubted winners in the christian calendar year two thousand and nineteen.
Messi has the highest meida profile of a male while rapinoe has the highest profile of a female soccer player.
If we delete club achievements or individual statistics from messi or rapinoe they win the balon d'or but the common media's attempt to link balon d'or winners success to their teams successes or balancing their statistics aside other players always unfairly, is deleted and that cleans up the dysfunctional arguments through media, which is probably what common media does not want, going back to the question , what is entertaining in sport punditry
<reply to Naa Bardina https://twitter.com/Thetenner10/status/1201608541267734532 >
In Amendment
JAmie easton made a comment about the balon dor, a historical one that made me think to some things
<referal https://twitter.com/eastonjamie/status/1201634494647820289 >
I paraphrase my reply to him in the following prose...
has anyone powerful considered making the balon d'or for the top players in uefa/conmebol/caf/afc/concacaf? since each subconfederation to fifa has a top player, let them all win the balon d'or for a year. That solution lessens the need for competition and allows each region an equality that the balon d'or uefa centric community rejects.
IN AMENDMENT 2
Another idea is less spoken off, but in club soccer, when a club wins a certain number of titles, they achieve a star on their shirt. Maybe if a player achieve two or more balon dor, then they get a balon de diamant. Basically, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge,Kevin Keegan,Alfredo Di Stéfano,Ronaldo,Franz Beckenbauer,Marco van Basten,Johan Cruyff,Michel Platini,Cristiano Ronaldo,Lionel Messi all receive balon de diamant, and cr7 side messi can no longer be eligible for the balon d'or. For players whose spirits have flown or players who no longer get paid to play they will get their balon de diamant while cr7 and messi can get their balon de diamant and can now battle out the new balon de diamant for still playing balon de diamant players. so 2020 balon de diamant can be between messi/cr7 solely. In this way, it makes the balon d'or more honest or competitive as heavily popular players have a limit on how many times they can win it. And other players who warrant more on the year have more space to win it.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs BAyern Munich- gladbach were the true rivals to bayern in the 1970s but in the 1980s 1990s gladbach went through severe times and dortmund became touted as the rival, but dortmund isn't the true rival to bayern, it is gladbach and although gladbach took a long time, like any young horse, it will eventually mature and maybe this beginning is to a great era for Gladbach, not to dominate germany but like atletico madrid, to be a best of the rest

Ramy Bensebaini goal- penalty read it well but the placement or power was too great

Match highlights

PSG vs Montpellier in france- the refereeing in this match is why neymar/mbappe will want to leave ligue1. PEople will say players have to get on with it, but that is a mentality before players were millionaires and before players were able to go to places of better comfort. No player wants to get kicked out of a game and any player can get kicked out. People praise messi but I never saw the fouls to neymar or mbappe this match applied to messi that did not get the perpetrator carded.  PSG are fortunate the foul on mbappe didn't lead to great injury.  Tuschel still doesn't have a good team balance, maybe he never will but in the end, the inability to get psg to look smooth in all aspects of collective play for one match is one of tuschel's glaring errors.

Neymar- brought montpellier down to ten men getting fouled and made a lovely set piece to start the psg run, he hit the crossbar to the reverse side
https://www.weibo.com/tv/v/IjJZCggZ0?fid=1034:4447050092445698

Mbappe - neymar passed to Mbappe and mbappe shimmied to get space from his marker and slotted in far side
https://www.weibo.com/tv/v/IjK0qtE2j?fid=1034:4447050578722827

Icardi - i listed it as cavani in the video page, but it was icardi, neymar held up the ball, got through a line and made a cutting pass to mbappe, then mbappe curved a cross to Icardi and Icardi one timed it.

Steve Graff introduced me to a call for talking on rel/pro in the usa, meaning relegation or promotion in the usa soccer system.  The talk was ushered by 3four3.

The following is my extended thoughts.... In the past, when I communicated side Steve or on my own, I focused on the structure to a system where soccer teams in the usa will be in tiers and from performance, at the end of a season, those above or below a quality line will be placed into a higher or lower tier, ala Rel/Pro in the USA. I placed a link below to those. But, the following is an angle I have not taken before. When we talk of relegation or promotion , people talk of structure to its design or finances to make it happen. I suggest the most important factor is place. I do not have the money to force ussoccer to change, most supporters to RelPro in the USA do not have the financial ability on an individual level. But, even if relpro in the usa supporters came together and joined our pennies, it will not be enough to start a tiered league system utilizing relegation or promotion that ussoccer will accept. Sequentially, where relpro can exist is the first issue. My answer to where is the state soccer associations. I live in new york state. New York state, dysfunctionally, has two state associations, one for west and one for east. But, all states in the union have at least one state soccer association. A federation wide league is not where relpro need to exist. If the idea is to grow , it must grow within state associations. A new york east tiered league is an example. USSoccer's rules are focused on federation -wide leagues. A league pyramid that is based in a state will never be deemed a tier1/2/3 league by ussoccer but in parallel  or contrast, said league pyramid will be free to operate as it will absent any fear of a restriction or a diminishing from ussoccer. If you are considering , what about international play, most states have a path into the us open. Is that single pathway the most opportune? no. But it mean a state based league is not blockaded, even if the challenge is high.

... I end using the following, a state based league pyramid is less  fiscally expensive in the usa than a federation based league pyramid. It also will be labeled a very low tier by ussoccer. But, it is in an environment free from the negative criticisms or barriers to relpro that are apparent in the top tier leagues.

In amendment- my tweet content

I think the key is where relpro can exist in the usa, if relpro advocates focus on making it in one state in the union, I think it can have a functional example

uefa champions league 12/10/2019

 

FC REdbull salzburg vs liverpool- the soccer gods are english, Slazburg had better chances but in the end, their lack of sharpness cost them and liverpool capatalized on nervous defending. Mertens acquired a goal after the half, but the milik hattrick before half ended the game

 

Napoli vs Genk- Ancelotti reportedly is leaving Napoli after this match but he leaves napoli a winner and profitable, well done by him. I hope he finds a team fighting for titles that has a more balanced ownership.

Arkadiusz Milik 2- callejon  , I think though I may be wrong, made a low cross and milik scored.
https://www.weibo.com/tv/v/Ikcnx9dk2?fid=1034:4448141282312195

Arkadiusz Milik 3 - Callejon broke through the genk backline and the genk keeper fouled him after his chipping which led to a penalty. Milik slotted it in , the keeper did not see it
https://www.weibo.com/tv/v/IkcoBmruJ?fid=1034:4448141638828039

 

FC Inter milan vs FC Barcelona-Inter had three goals called offside. Conte will drill inter harder, the europa league will be an interesting opportunity for them

Romelu lukaku goal- Good goal, but it didn't click

UEFA CL 2019-2020 group stage

 

Group A
PSG- tuschel never made psg seem balanced, he never made them seem fluid but the offensive power clicked, the players if they act as a team, even guided poorly can do great things.
Real Madrid- they are rusty but zidane is having them find form
Club Brugge- they were not powerful enough to over come psg or real madrid but they outclassed psg
Galatasaray- struggling in turkey, struggling everywhere, they sold their top goal scorer and are paying the price

Group B
Bayern Munich-the speed of their attack is strong. They are defensively soft in the bundesliga but the remaining teams never tested them enough
Tottenham Hotspur- their group stage was decent but it showed problems that their epl play expose. They need to work on their defensive structure, they have a winter season to do it
Olympiacos- Their battle betweem themselves and red star belgrade was decided on the last day, between themselves and they succeeded.
Red Star Belgrade- good battle, but needed to treasure the europa league. they needed to defeat olympiakos on the last group stage.

Group C
Manchester City- Dominated the remaining teams in this group who defensively were not able to resist them enough. but their results in the epl aside their uefa champions league success, they clearly have problems that need sorting out if they want to win the uefa champions league
Atalanta- my favorite story of the group, Atalanta did it all, they
Shaktar Donetsk- Atalanta is one of the best if not the best team in the group stage only salzburg seemed a better team by my eyes
Dinamo Zagreb- the whipping team, though they tripped up shaktar

Group D
Juventus - their success over Atleti won them the group. Sarri's system is not as electric as in Napoli or Empoli but he is just starting his tenure as Juventus coach, if he can get another season it will be better.
Atletico Madrid - The ability fo Costa/Morata/Felix to play together continually get stymied but Atleti are working on finding their balance
Bayer Leverkusen - lost against Lokomotiv moscow and that derailed their chances
Lokomotiv Moscow- the russian side were not strong enough at home , spoiled leverkusen's run successfully

Group E
Liverpool- like barcelona liverpool are a woeful team defensively, but their offense is electric even when not as potent. the opponents are key, opponents who are capable in defense or attack and can handle their speed they will want to evade
Napoli- Like any good soap opera/telenovela Napoli progress in the champions league absent certainty over players/coaches or what the owner will do. Drama requires fuel, progressing in the champions league is great fuel.
Red Bull Salzburg- A dangerous attack, but like Inter , too dull, though the europa league competition may offer better opponents to grow their chance ratio and sequentially the goals scored
Genk- were not at the level to the other three

Group F
FC Barcelona- dominated the group. The key to barcelona is their attack, it is heavy and that is their key/advantage/weapon but if a team they face has a sharp attack, that doesn't need many opportunities and a staunch defense, it will get difficult
Dortmund- looked poor, the problem I have with dortmund in the next round is their defense seemed the most weak in this groups challenging teams. Inter's attack is unsharp and thus dortmund's success
Inter Milan- Are not sharp, it isn't that their defense is bad or shift between defense or attack is bad, but their offense is blunt. three goals taken away by offside is the statistic that shows more work in smoothing out their attack is needed. In italy they may not go against quick to react defenses like barcelona's, although they still cut through barca.
Slavia PRague- they were not in the quality to the other three.

Group G
RB Leipzig- this group was the best battling group. All four teams had a chance until the last match day. LEipzig simply won the battles more than the others, but no team in this group was dominant over the others. Leipzig will have a battle in the next round but have a chance for the easiest opponent.
Lyon- Like all the other teams had to battle every match in this group. They won on the last day and progress to the next stage of the champions league,but the chance to a very potent opponent is high
Benfica- placed third but they did not show lesser value than any other side, a goal or two difference is the swing of points in the groups. Benfica are a battling team , they can do well in the europa league
Zenit- The rules say zenit is out of all competitions but they played well. This group had no team lesser or greater than. In the end, zenit needed a few goals and the points would had placed them atop the group. so, good showing, they can continue their climb to earn into the next uefa champions league.

Group H
Valencia- the la liga team not in the simeone era big laliga 3 <real/barca/atleti>. Topping the group is good cause it allows for them to have a chance to face a softer opponent in the next round.
Chelsea - This season is still a modulating season. But, the season chelsea won the champions league was a similar season. Chelsea have a team that plays like a team and that is good against many other teams that do not play as a team all over the pitch.
Ajax - like all youth teams, they sell youth when they reach maturity sequentially, they do not have consistency. Ajax has issues in the europa league, cause while they are young do they have the discipline to handle the thursday matches so close to league matches on the weekend.
Lille - Lille entered the UEFA champions league through the goals from their star striker last season. Absent that inspiration, that goal scoring talisman, lille has floundered this season in all competitions.

Richard Murray Thoughts Round 6 - https://www.kobo.com/us/en/audiobook/richard-murray-thoughts-round-6-1

 

-----------------------------------

Title: Introduction
Good Morning , Good afternoon, or Good evening, wherever you are listening, I am Richard Murray and welcome to this audio edition to my thoughts. Remember, to click the link in the description of this edition to view the transcript, that has links to everything I refer OR to send me a message about a topic you want to hear in the future.
---------------------
Title: Balon Dor part 2
In the last round I spoke on the topic of the Balon D'or, specifically on how to improve the rulings or its structure to end the media debates on its validity or on the winners validity.
But mari Balotelli made a statement, issued out by 360 source, that I learned from mercy khakukani . I paraphrase him, the link to the quote is in the transcript... winning the balon d'or on more than one team once is greater than winning the balon d'or on one team many more time than twice.
Now, based on the current balon d'or model, as I spoke in the last round, no judgment can hold up to the award or the recipients.
But, Balo's point I thought about in another way. Forget the Balon d'or as much as what it is supposed to symbolize, a trophy to the best player,in all ways, above all others in a calendar year. If that is the case then winning it playing for more than one club is a unique achievement.
< referral https://twitter.com/mercykhahukani/status/1203371071476523009 >
----------------------
Title: Another round of RelPro in the USA
In the end, i should not had even spoken on relpro in the usa again. but I thought to an idea rarely stated from myself or through the discussions.
In the referral link, in the transcript, I describe the reasons behind the rarely stated position. I ask you to use the link in the transcript. I considered stating the idea after 3four3 asked for , and I quote, one single, precise, efficient, incisive question or talking point in a tweet
... relpro in the usa can start in a tiered league system in a state soccer association. I will extrapolate a little though it is a retelling in truth ... No matter what form of relpro in the usa supporters want, or the financing supporters want to give such a system, the place in the usa where relpro in the usa has the best chance to succeed is in a state in the union, the lowest ussoccer tier. No federal wide representation. But, the ability to be RelPro.
<referral https://aalbc.com/tc/blogs/entry/249-richard-murray-thoughts-version-2/page/10/?tab=comments#comment-784 >
------------------------
Title: CAF in the future
The ghana football association said they want womens league clubs to have social platforms and media officers, an order more than a demand.
I quote what I commented on the NB Sports tweet
begin quote
as someone who has been online for a while, i wonder what social media accounts they will have i hope the nwl teams consider using one social space, and consider global audiences, facebook/twitter are as strong outside the anglophone, consider a black owned website or maybe(1/2)all the teams can work together and make a website , that is what i hope but i have no power @NaaBardina try to regale the teams to make a website, that will be better than individual pages @darmooh82  please regale,maybe a site for nwl clubs and other ghana sport concerns? (2/2)
end quote
NB Sports < https://twitter.com/NBSports_Live > side  Naa Bardino < https://twitter.com/NaaBardina > side Bree Mongina < https://twitter.com/beebree0 > replied to my suggestion with a position counter while not negative. They said, a twitter/facebook profile is enough, let the clubs grow into what they want and online media spaces is not the priority of the team... they are each correct. Other aspects are more vital to the teams in ghana, the spaces on twitter or facebook are suitable if they wish to mirror what most clubs do, and over time they will grow.
My problem is not what they said as much as what they didn't say. Relying on twitter or facebook or any website they do not control deletes their ability to manage their content, as their content will be under the control of twitter or facebook. Over time, if they do as they suggest their fanbase will grow through twitter or facebook and thus be hard for them to severe the connection later if they want. While winning on the pitch is vitally important, how vital is the online fanbase to manchester united/barcelona/real madrid that allows their success or failures to be louder than any other teams successes online. part of that is the fact that the edge they have in fans gives them the edge when the interacting space to most fans is through the twitters/facebooks of the world that in their profiteering reject the growth of other clubs outside the real madridbarcelona/mufc/liverpool/arsenal contingents.
<referral https://twitter.com/NBSports_Live/status/1204753107328143360 >
In AMendment I asked others what do they think the esocial activity need to be and the answer was in the same mold, to make facebook/twitter pages and follow other sports clubs actions.
I have learned alot about why many sports organizations are failures. It is not merely the quality in owners/administrators but the common mentality in fans/general populace. When the average person, who accesses the modern internet all the time, thinks sports teams need to follow the current standard. A current standard bereft of efficiency and designed to only support the already advantaged, it explains why they can't succeed.
If you are disadvantaged, you will never reach above the advantaged doing what the advantaged set you up to do. The model in sports media does not favor the disadvantaged, which is what every female sport club is. The fact that fans or non fans to the beautiful game, who are online every day, can only see the current model as what is needed to do, exposes how much most people do not think on things, care about these things, or comprehend how important they are.

----------------------
Title: Good Thoughts

congratulations to jvw girls for winning the national league and good luck in the national womens league

Every one take a look at Isoka , a sports agency for the future of CAF

Title: Conclusion
Thank you for listening, if you have something you want me to talk about you can message me on my A.A.L.B.C. blog as a guest. Once I get three or more topics through current events or suggestions I will make another edition. A link ,to a transcript in my African American Literary Book Club or A.A.L.B.C. blog, is in the description to this edition , or any round after, you can use to place a guest comment.
I am Richard Murray, good morning, good afternoon, or good evening, wherever you were listening

-------------------------

Description
The Topics Covered in this edition are
Balon Dor part 2-is lebron james winning in multiple teams a certain quantity of championships more unique than kobe/jordan/russell winning the same quantity in one team?
Another round of RelPro in the USA- Relegation or Promotion requires money to occur in the usa, but not even money can break the bureaucracy in ussoccer that demands relpro occur within us soccer state associations, I explain further in the audio.
CAF in the future- the lack of concern or emphasis aside desire to follow the common patterns from administrators throughout the confederation of african football toward their online media presence is a very negative heritage or promulgated culture that will generate many difficulties later

UEFA champions league Round 16 2019/2020 

  • Borussia Dortmund vs PSG - PSG are up against a poor defensive team, that are historically wobbly 

  • Real Madrid vs Manchester City - this may be a great battle or a drumming to one or the other. MCFC do not defend and Zidane will massage real Madrid to be strong in modulation and exploit the well-known strategic defect in Guardiola's ways 

  • Atalanta vs Valencia - Atalanta has a great opponent, Valencia can embarrass Atalanta, but Atalanta is a great team and they can exploit Valencia who may be wobbling as well 

  • Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool- Atleti has the counter on, the key is how to be patient. Liverpool attack and lose all their shape, the key is to have patience, the chances will come. 

  • Chelsea vs Bayern Munich- Bayern Munich has injury problems, Chelsea is young, this will be a return battle between two sides whose greatest outing found Chelsea winning the UEFA champions league 

  • Lyon vs Juventus- OL have to battle and Memphis Depay our most devastating attacking player is out for the year. Juventus are very dangerous and Lyonnais do not have the strongest defense. 

  • Tottenham vs Leipzig- Leipzig is electric in attack, overwhelming, Tottenham has a dodgy defense but it may be sharp or organized by this time. this will test Mourinho's ability to organize Tottenham's defense in a short-congested period. 

  • Napoli vs Barcelona- Barcelona will be deadly in attack. But more than likely still suspect in defense. The variable is Napoli itself. Will Napoli be better or worse, collectively, energetically. 

 

 

Europa league Round 32 2019/2020 

  • Wolverhapton vs Espanyol- the Portuguese wolves will have an Iberian battle with Espanyol, one half in England, good battle 

  • Sporting Portugal vs Istanbul Basaksehir- Sporting are shaky but basaksehir have a tough Turkish super lig battle. As the sole Turkish representative, they will want to do better. 

  • Getafe vs Ajax- Ajax in recent seasons show a desire to win anything in the confederation, so they will be serious. Getafe is a battling side, experienced in dealing with better clubs in talent or resources. Ajax showed a softness that most selling teams have after a big sale, but Getafe may be overrun. 

  • Bayer Leverkusen vs Porto - Another good battle. Teams at the same level, whomever is better over two legs will win it. 

  • Copenhagen vs Celtic- Two teams in the long haul of the Europa league. Celtic has a greater name but Copenhagen can shock them 

  • APOEL vs Basel- Another great battle. 

  • CFR Cluj vs Sevilla- Sevilla's prestige or roster has a greatness over Cluj but depending on when these matches occur, Sevilla may sacrifice them for la liga placement, and Sevilla do not have a bench team better than Cluj 

  • Olympiacos vs Arsenal- Olympiacos is a stalwart in these rounds of the Europa league. Arsenal have some devastating talents but arsenal is going through such a bad time in the E.P.L. if it persists during this round, it may be too large a negative moment and make it easier for olympiakos 

  • AZ vs LASK- I do not know these clubs well, but from what I know this is a battle 

  • Club Brugge vs MUFC- Brugge is one of the best teams in the champions league group stage. MUFC cannot hustle past them. I expect a rout, which will suit MUFC well in focusing on champions league's next term 

  • Ludogorets Razgrad vs Inter Milan- Inter Milan's lack of goal sharpness cost them being in the later stages of the champions league, Conte has a month or two to sharpen inter's attack 

  • Eintracht Frankfurt vs Red Bull Salzburg- Salzburg lack of goal sharpness like inter milan is why they are in the europa league. If they become sharper in scoring, they will progress and potentially go deep. 

  • Shaktar Do

Neymar always was a good guy, the media created the villain neymar, pushing the common populace who then propelled it themselves.

Title: UEFA champions league- Europa league draw 2019-2020
I placed all the matchups in the coming round of the u.e.f.a. champions league or europa league in the transcript and some matchups are really spicy others seem prescient, others i think are ripe for a surprise. But, my issue is competitiveness. One of the biggest media issues to the champions league is the lack of competitiveness, the same old same old but when I look at the europa league, the europa league is the competition those who speak of competitiveness say they want. The problem is the europa league or champions league have detractors whose agenda asks too much. The detractors to the champions league say they are tired of the same old teams but are not interested in focusing on the europa league, whose winner is never predestined. On the other hand, the detractors to the europa league, say it is not for top teams but they never admit how many teams of larger global cognition get annually defeated by teams of a smaller media footprint. Lastly, the detractors to the entire confederation cup duo in u.e.f.a, meaning champions league side europa league, do not admit how many teams they want in the proposed u.e.f.a. superleague have failed in either competition. The biggest culprit is english premier league teams. Many supporters of the super league always profess a need for six or eight english premier league teams and yet, in the champions league or europa league, english teams have in no way been dominant in decades. If half of the teams in the superleague have not been dominant in the champions league then I do not comprehend how the superleague can determine the best team in u.e.f.a. ... So many fiscal forces want the soccer world to reflect the negative business practices at the core to most industries in humanity. but competition has value. Sports teams are not be too big too fail. The desire by various monied interests to make sports teams in the global game, too big to fail, is a strategic mistake that I hope those in F.I.F.A. against can successfully deter. Remember to use the link in the transcript for this segment to read my thoughts on all the matchups in the u.e.f.a. champions league or europa league

Title: Botafogo new structure

December twenty seventh , in the roman year two thousand and nineteen, Botafogo Regatas and Futebol club became Botafogo S/A , not in the facade to the club but underneath. I am not privy to the details in the restructuring or how it will work out. But, what was conveyed is the following. Botafogo of Rio de Janeiro will split the complete futebol department from the rest of the club, and seek finances from investors in a time frame. This action seems to have occured absent a need to readjust the administrative rule book to the club. I will love to know the thoughts to the eight who voted no , one who voted neutral and one who did not vote. The circa four hundred and ninety five who voted for this seem to have support from various groups or peoples. I find it funny that the club of the PEople's Joy , Garrincha , is the one being used to go against a social system into the single corporate style.
In the end, I hoped that those in control in brasil would force large fiscal operators to make their own teams and start from the bottom tier in brasil and work their way to the top. But, I knew the odds were against that and this action by botafogo is clearly being financed or invested by various fiscal sources who want brasil's oldest clubs to be bought by large financial concerns. Many suggested that in the recent club world cup, that the success of liverpool over flamengo in the final was based on the financial potency in UEFA's model, which is against the socio for the most part. I still think a socio driven club can do greatly overtime. I have little to nothing , if one ask for proof, but I know it can be done. The problem is a socio based club, having a great dynasty will come absent individual wealth. And individual wealth is the key. PResidents and others of financially big clubs have large financial revenue streams coming their way. A true socio club having a trophy laden era, will not lead to the fiscal wealth that most , including myself, desire at some level. It is unfortunate, but my hope in big business trying to prove itself in the soccer world will seem not to be. Big business has to do things cheaply, do it shortly, do it absent long term planning that eternally short term boosts. I hope Botafogo will do well, but I may have to eliminate the club as one of mine.

Title: The Beautiful Game
Futebol or Soccer is called the beautiful game, Jogo Bonito from its first global superstar Pele, and in its history from Pele participation stalling a war in Africa or world war I soldiers taking a respite, provide historical evidence that futebol or sport itself can be the bandaid on all global problems.
But I oppose this view. It is not up to the beautiful game or any other sport to be a bandaid on the problems between peoples.
Earlier this year, Iranian women were allowed to go into stadiums in iran and many suggested it was a win for sport. But it was not, it was a dysfunction. It is not up to sport to determine or influence the gender balance in iran, that is up to the iranian people. In parallel, it is not up to sport to show all the peoples in the usa can be on a team or work together positively or be absent bias. Blacks still do not like whites while whites still do not like blacks even though the champion sports teams have all phenotypes in their makeup.
The problem is not that soccer or any sport is a thing of the people, a politic, people make up all sport. But the problem is sport has tried to reflect what people are not outside the pitch/court instead of accepting what people are outside the pitch. And people outside the pitch are full of angers/dislikes/negative biases or other negatives or based on experiences/greeds/philosophies  or other sources.
... what happened in china concerning Ozil should not shocked anyone but been embraced as the human way.

Title: OL side Reign FC

It is official, January two thousand and twenty in the christian calendar Olympique lyonnais will be the majority owners of Reign F.C.
The sale was circa three point 5 million approximately, it is odd to me that the national womens soccer league in the u.s.a. does not have a black owned team when the reign can be bought for circa three point five million . Anyway, Seattle is a pacific city. It borders the sea that connects asia to the american continent. It is a big city in the northwestern region in the usa, which is far from france. I thought french olympique lyonnais is smarter having a north american attache in a place like quebec or montreal but with the canadians starting their own leagues maybe aulas already has that planned.
I listened to Lyon Offside, concerning the Reign FC buy, Aulas didn't state why he preferred buying an existing team over starting a team from scratch. Arianna Scavetti or AScavs on twitter made a good point about the scouting system in the Reign already in existence being a good help. I add, Lyon coming from europe will have no experience concerning college scouting. In terms of the badges, I think the reign badge can be modified to mirror the lyon badge.
In the end, this investment did not cost Aulas over 5 million dollars. So, if you think on sport meia growth in the usa, then it will recover that 5 million plus more sooner rather than later.
