Borussia Mönchengladbach vs Fortuna Düsseldorf- gladbach have a game in hand, this was a must win and they won it. Gladbach have a chance to have a great season, i hope all the players buy into what can happen

Erik Thommy- an equalizer, gladbach is the best defensive team in the bundesliga statistically this season but in modernity gladbach always have a softness in defense.

Lars Stindl- his first goal was from Zacharia and this second was from zacharia too, running and laying it off. Thuram started this goal with his midfield control.

Florian Neuhaus- Thuram's replacement, Ibrahima Traore, chested it for Neuhaus and he did the rest, a controlled dribble and strike


PSG vs Amiens- PSG absent Neymar side Mbappe is not the same team; this match showcased the simple truth, clubs have the right to pay what they want for players but that payment is not indicative of a quality standard, that is a personal choice. But, another player paid less must not play as if that payment means they are worth less or can not do more.

Serhou Guirassy- his second goal of the match. PSG using a new system, absent neymar/mbappe basically had a preseason match with a rotated squad against a battle hardened team fighting regulation.This goal made the match end 4-4 allez amiens

weekends 2/16/2020 #realmadrid #celta #laliga


Real Madrid vs Celta Vigo- marcelo /kroos/bale all were legged slow in reactions at times, all seemed out of it , but overall I like dreal madrid's balance. Both defensive goals came from poor communication or spacing with the central defenders. When you have marcelo you know he flied up so central defenders have to be sharper. To be fair, Hazard/Marcelo are great together but when hazard goes off then marcelo need to do off.

Fyodor Smolov- some blame marcelo but smolov cut between two defenders, that should never happen.

Toni Kroos- Benzema side MArcelo set up Kroos and he placed it , like thomas partay's goal earlier for atleti.

Sergio Ramos- hazard made the penalty, I wish zidane had not lethazard go to the bench but uefa champions league thoughts and hazard coming back from injury prevailed.

Santi Mina- again, weakness in central defense, especially with the attacking situation changed up front. What people forget about defenders is their comprehension to the players in front of them holds a huge part in their actions

Richard Murray Thoughts Round 12 https://www.kobo.com/us/en/audiobook/richard-murray-thoughts-round-12-1



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: anti china
Formula 1 is under a serious challenge. On the one hand it has an immediate situation. April 19th the chinese grand prix is scheduled but the corona virus, most known cases in china < I Will not pretend to know the source or origin or other aspects to the virus>, has put in doubt the event, or at least the fiscal profitability in the event. Formula 1, especially their new corporate ownership, is not interested in an event absent attendees, based on a quarantine. Nor are they interested in a worst-case scenario where drivers/mechanics do not show up to the grand prix or are made sick after or during an attendance to the grand prix. Sequentially, Imola in italy has suggested replacing the Chinese Grand PRix. Formula 1 does not want an embarrassment or anything that media can use to criminalize or speak ill to their administration. BUT... the problem is, China is the second most powerful or wealthiest community in modern humanity. China will eventually get past the corona virus and thrive. China like any community in humanity has some level of pride. China may take a snubbing by formula 1 to heart and not only not have a chinese grand prix but disassociate with formula 1 in various ways in the future, which may be very costly, especially if china becomes the most powerful, past the usa in the future. This is not an easy choice. Formula 1 probably wants china to make the choice, but china, like japan with Fujima and the olympics, is too proud or concerned with their image to reject a global event even if a health risk is involved with maintaining it in their lands. But with Donald trump as president and the various European forces swaying here or there, many want to push formula one in to rejecting China, even doing it insultingly through the chinese grand prix. But, modern day sport is defined by two things, first participation, second advertisement. The beautiful game is the most dominant global sport not because it is globally advertised, the NFL is globally advertised but can not even remotely reach Jogo Bonito, the reason is the nfl is not globally participated. Formula 1 is an expensive sport, and needs as much participation as possible. If I was in charge of formula 1 I will wait for the chinese to decide if holding the chinese grand prix is viable, and if April 19th comes and they say no, then the calendar will have one less grand prix. And if so, then take the risk, assuming china will not want a calamity with faith being given.

Title: MultiUSA
I quote myself: The usa is showing in all organizations the challenge in being multiracial while for all... I will not focus to the usa government but focus on the world of soccer in the usa.  
Jermaine Jones <in twitter at Jermainejunior j-e-r-m-a-i-n-e-j-u-n-i-o-r >side Eddie Johnson <in twitter at eddie_johnson7 e-d-d-i-e-underscore-j-o-h-n-s-o-n-seven> spoke on comments after Jurgen Klinnsman's scenario at HErtha Berlin and media , like alexi lalas chimed in on Klinnsmans previous tenure as head coach of the united states mens national team.
Eddie Johnson said, I paraphrase, Jurgen challenged the national team and as Americans, most did not like the challenge.  Jermaine Jones said, I paraphrase, Bruce arena has taken the u.s. mens national team backwards. The current team has some players that are not quality while the mixed racial players have been sent away in majority. No matter where players play if they have a usa passport and they are the best available, they need to be in the usa national team.
... I am an outsider to the inner mechanics of ussoccer or the united states mens national team. But, from what I was privy to as a youth soccer player in new york city and various public actions by the administration of ussoccer in various avenues, may it be major league soccer or the mens or womens national team. I can say, without any doubt, the problem in the usa soccer community is the inability to handle multiracial while for all.  
Johnson spoke of the challenges Klinnsman gave ussoccer. The challenges in terms of roster or players was huge, though few in quantity or simple in design... The soccer world , built by FIFA has every phenotypical race present in administration/ownership/coaching/players. Name me any people, I can tell you they have club owners/players/coaches/administrators in fifa or one of the confederations. You want black people, go to the caribbean football union or the confederation of african football, black people exists throughout either in all aspects, from ball boys/players/trainers/coaches to administrators or owners. You want white asians, go to the asian football confederation and the east zone with china/japan/the koreas. You want mulattoes or mestizoes, go to conmebol, and they exists in all capacities throughout. But, the u.s.a. has a unique property, unlike any other country , the usa has within its borders, every community in humanity. KLinnsman proposed reaching all those communities to get not only the best of the union of european football associations, but the best of the confederation of african football, asian football confederation, cofederation of mesoamerican futebol. The USA has the most multiracial populace of any community on earth. Phenotypical/linguistic/religious/gender, Klinnsman challenged us soccer to do what has never happened in the usa, have an organization that represent the multiracial quality in the usa, not in name but also in body. Find the players in the native american reservations, the chinatowns, the southern black towns, the urban poor neighborhoods, as well as the rich white suburbs, and white country towns. Klinnsman didn't want it for philosophy, he wanted it cause he comprehended that the best team the usa can create is one that is built from all people, not one, and the usa has the populace to do that. The mixed players that jermaine jones refer to are a product of the integrated multiracial mantra built in the usa, against white supremacy, that exists interwoven in many other countries, not only the usa.  
The second challenge was multiracial but in a less individual way. Soccer is a global sport, the only complete global sport.  The USA is used to every sport being centered around the usa. How many tennis players live in florida? what is the basketball /baseball/gridiron/hockey world absent the leagues in the usa, the national basketball association/major league baseball/national football association/national hockey league respectively.  Absent usa based sports leagues, basketball has no global audience, as the globe does not look at basketball in europe or china. Baseball has no global audience as the globe does not look at baseball in japan ,The gridiron is dead as a sport, since no one but the usa participates in it. Hockey losses a global audience since the world does not look at hockey in russia. Soccer has two globally watched zones, in europe and south america. China want to become a third and may well do so eventually. Klinnsman challenged ussoccer to severe from the pack and look toward the worlds leagues. But the monied interest in the usa that control soccer , control those other leagues and it is not in the best interest of the nba/mlb/nhl/nfl if soccer's representation in the usa accepts players playing outside the usa as a greater standard than in the usa.  That will force ussoccer to improve the quality of major league soccer, if major league soccer is going to be treated as a better league than the best outside the usa. But, the monied powers know that to make the uss soccer pyramid better, it will demand infrastructural changes that will have to empower more than the white european communities in the usa,and the white european owners in the usa do not want that.
Jermaine Jones suggested that Klinnsman asked USSoccer to judge players by race, but race based on merit, not phenotype/fiscal class/language/geography as long as someone is American. ...  
While you may think I am being hard or correct to USSoccer, it must be said, the united states of america has always been multiracial and always controlled by one race, that is white european. USsoccer's failure to achieve meritocracy is not a crime considering far more important organizations in the human community that make up the usa have failed to do so.
The United States NAtional soccer team players association supports tripling the pay of united states womens national team players. Now as a labor union, it is against their interest to support weaker negotiations for players. But, many articles suggest the us mens national team squad spoke, when the labor union is not the squad. Not all the male players support female players higher wages. I used this to amend to add another element in the problem of Multiracial for all in the USA, and that is the media. Media is allowed too many lies, too many false suggestions, defended by the idea that, people can find out the truth for themselves. But, truth need to be part of the freedom of the press, and I say that not merely based on the forementioned case of the united states womens national team, but the history of the usa, where lies in news media became truth, that still are commonly accepted.
The U.S. Women's National Team Players Association is for female players in the usa.

Title: competition
The title of the article I will speak on is: "How modern football became broken beyond repair"
After reading the article, the biggest problem is the perspective. The article is entitled and in its body refer to the world, but in the details the article only mention Europe. The beautiful game is not broken. The problem is, like in so many modern institutions the head is white european and the body is not.  
I watch the copa libertadores/copa sudamericana/nadeshiko league/caf champions leagues, some teams have huge stands. Most of these teams are financially modest. The question is, if you take away UEFA, is the beautiful game broken today, broken defined as dominated by a mega rich who win all and dominate all? The answer is definitely no. when you look at china/nigeria/south africa/brazil/mexico/usa can you say a set of teams have the dominance that exists in uefa? the answer is no.  
The problem is for europeans, white europeans, white people, uefa represents the soccer world gardless of whatever else is going on in the world. So, the problem is the media narrative. Global media is also focused on europe/usa and will lose money, advertising dollars, if media concerns at other places gains global viewers. Thus the only argument global media can suggest is soccer is broken based on uefa. But that argument is itself, not based on comprehensive reporting or global assessment but a limited view toward uefa and the profits they achieve.  
I tell all with futebol/soccer/the beautiful game or jogo bonito that pele labeled it if you want competitive soccer look at lower tiers, look  in conmebol/caf/afc. Instead of being angered at changes in uefa, become a global viewer to the game and view the cups that big money in uefa/usa wants to end. The answer is perception or viewing habits. I love watching turkish soccer, where every season has been an honest race, and yet, are people in europe watching turkish soccer?   
The soccer world is not broken folks, it is the only place where all in humanity are owners/all in humanity participate, all in humanity are given their space, barring the gender racial disparities. And, gender is slowly coming about. If you want to see big money/highly competitive/black/white/female/muslim in soccer, it is available, turn the channel and it will be there.

uefa champions league 2182020 #PSG #Dortmund #neymar #Mbappe #Atleti #Colcheneros #Liverpool #UEFACL #saul

Paris saint-germain vs Borussia Dortmund - Tuschel used a 433 with di maria/mbappe/neymar up top, this is a system absent a number nine. Cavani or icardi, both who played over the weekend. I don't like it. DI maria/mbappe/neymar each need a number 9 to be most effective, as a reference, they are three floaters, but you need someone static up there. Tuschel took off Cavani against Real madrid and psg suffered, he did not play cavani or icardi, why? why? I guess the 424 at home. Tuschel said the team needed rest, but you have to ask players feel the fire. He is micromanaging too much. No verratti or meunier in the next round. Verratti is a big blow, but he has to play Icardi to bring balance to Neymar/Mbappe/Di Maria who clearly missed him, nothing is over, but it will be a shame if psg falter to soft dortmund

Neymar- mbappe made it finally cut through dortmund, and neymar was there


Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool - was christened by most in media as the obvious progressors. To me a dysfunctional claim. Any team can beat any other team, thus why Atalanta is in this round of the uefa champions league. One thing I noticed negative in Liverpool is their passing. Liverpool pass to slowly to manipulate the shape of Atletico. And some of their passes, assumed a lack of true defensive cognition. Atleti performed a defensive masterclass on Liverpool who clearly are not used to such high quality defense, locked them up. Atleti must watch out for Correa double yellow but, stay calm. Keep the ball high, twice in the match Oblak or Partay tried to play from the back with a low ball or patient possession and it nearly cost the team. Be more willing to kick the ball wide when under pressure. Mane and salah were taken off and absent their speed the liverpool system is nothing. It is called strategy. Now atleti can progress with any draw.With Manchester city out of the uefa champions league the hope of england in media is relying on liverpool. I just do not see English teams going through. Liverpool will overrun, MCFC will be outclassed, Tottenham will injury themselves out.

Saul Niguez-an error in the box, from a set piece

UEFA champions LEague 2192020 #uefacl #tottenham #leipzig #mourinho #atalanta #valencia #gasperini


Tottenham Hotspur vs RB Leipzig- From the first five minutes to the half LLoris was busy, his presence and reaction saving is key to Tottenham's survival. Serge Aurier is like MArcelo, a player who plays in a wide defensive back role but pushes hard high so often that he demands an offensive style of play in attack. Some pundits like Eric Krakauer suggest Mourinho was outplayed by the Leipzig coach , Nagelsmann. But , Mourinho is a defensive first coach, brought to a team that was defensively shattering. He has improved their defense so that they are picking up points only fewer than mancehster city. Defense is the beginning and the health in the squad is low. Lloris has also been healthy and that matters. Nothing is over, Tottenham have had an awful season concerning they were finalists last year in the uefacl, two big players hurt in kane/song , eriksen the midfield talisman sold, big summer in transfers for tottenham
Timo Werner- the rb leipzig player knew what he was doing it is the old foul trick, a ball is in the air, two players can go for it, one player waits the other goes to the ball, between the ball and the opposing player, foul. It is not a question of fouling, it is a question of intent, the rb leipzig player was going for the foul the whole time.  Lloris chose well but  Werner had all the elements of a set piece, power/placement no nonsense

Atalanta vs Valencia- Bergamo fans had to play in Milan but Bergamo people were there.  After the fourth atalanta goal and the 70 th minute atalanta looked gassed.Gasparini changed up the squad put Zapata in for stronger hold up quality, if zapata looked left more, atalanta had two open shots with a simple pass from him.
Hans Hateboer - the Gomes cross, brilliant talisman to make the cross to HAteboer
Josip Ilicic- the hold up play, magic, so few players today, seem physical, they all want to be on the ball dribbling
Remo Freuler - curler, best goal in the match, lovely curl
Hans Hateboer- counterattack, hard run, slot by the keeper near side

Recopa Sudamericana 2020 leg 1 #flamengo #independiente #recopa #conmebol


Flamengo vs Independiente del Valle- a great battle, Independiente seemed very up to it, looking at this like preparation. Mengao were slow to start, the injury to bruno henrique is massive , hope it isn't devastating
Jacob Murillo - lovely set piece, elegant
Bruno Henrique-great run from him, but was the recopa worth a bad injury. I hope he is well, but it seems a few weeks at the least, hopefully it is nothing serious
Pedro - vitinho, from botafogo , worked well wide and then on the revers eside a nice low cross knocked in, pedro has a role of being that guy to challenge gabriel barbosa or bruno henrique
Cristian Pellerano- penalty was earned, and pellerano took it, mengao keeper read it well, but it was placed better

Galatasaray vs Fenerbache 2232020 #galatasaray #fenerbache #continentalderby
A great battle, turkey is the best league in uefa:) Fenerbache led from the beginning but to be blunt, galatasaray fought through it. Onyekuru had three chances, but did finish the third. Outside of that, Galatasaray played smartly where I think fenerbache seemed inspired to try and control the game.
Ryan Donk- set piece, great corner from marcelo sarrachi, Donk got free and his skill at heading fired it into the back
RAdamel Falcao- Seri made the pass that released Onyekuru and Falcao as the senior goalscorer took it and scored
HEnry Onyekuru- the throughball was from seri again, onyekuru showed patience this time, cut across the marker, and then showed more patience and waited for the keeper, the keeper chose to rush and he slotted it behind him

Recopa Sudamericana second leg- #recopa #flamengo #gabigol

The red card put huge pressure on Flamengo but the lack of quality in del valle did not take advantage of the quantity advantage.
Gabriel Barbosa- It was an accident I chalk up to the defender being used to playing in higher altitude and misjudging his power. Gabriel Barbosa was there.
Gerson- Barbosa made a great wide run with the ball to the line and his pull back was intercepted but not enough and Gerson came storming in with precision to score

Title: New NAdashiko Leage
What I gather from reports is The new Nadeshiko League or japanese womens league, will start in september two thousand and twenty one. end sometime in may. Half of all staff roles must be filled by women. It will have between six and ten clubs. Team names will include the city of region but can include a corporate sponsor. The existing nadeshiko league will exist under this league as a tier two, but not relegation or promotion between the two. The parent company is scheduled to be set up in April and the first teams announced this summer.
The new league is clearly designed to grow and change over time, I wonder the pay scale.
I asked the president of INAC kobe what will happen to INAC and he replied, they will win it al... i will try to update you as the corona virus forces changes throughout asia,on the pitch or off.

Title: NWSL for women
Alex Morgan shared an article about Sydney Leroux, a paid athlete as well as mother in the National Womens Soccer LEague. Leroux admits, NWSL the national womens soccer league lost many good player for its wage value is under what the cost of livelihood is for most of the players in it. The NWSL does not have a collective bargaining agreement with the players but players for the us womens national team are represented by the United States Women’s National Team Players Association and are paid by ussoccer, not the nwsl. LEroux suggest the NWSL take a page from the wnba, womens national basketball association. The CBA or collective bargaining agreement between the WNBA and its players provides at the least 130,000 for each player, full salary while on maternity leave, annual child care stipend of five thousand.
I like the idea of maternity leave pay or better pay for female athletes, but like always the greater question is, who will pay? I do not know who. The NBA itself is paying the CBA agreement deal of the wnba. But who will pay for the national womens socer league players increase in wage quality?
In Amendment
Twitter user wagesofwins on twitter, spelled w-a-g-e-s-o-f-w-i-n-s , I quote... Men are willing to invest $200 million in an expansion MLS team despite the reality that most MLS teams do not earn a profit. Governments have given about $1 billion in subsidies to the MLS. And in the NWSL -- a truly elite league - we get this.
The this wagesofwins referred to is sydney leroux's situation. But, when I asked who will increase the wage quality, the answer is simple and wagsofwins comment suggest as much. If males or male dominated/controlled organizations are unwilling to invest in womens sport , womens sport has only one possible investor, and that is women themselves. In the sam way that black sports teams or leagues in the usa need black ownership, like the big 3 league, where black people like ice cuba have significant investment. Women must invest in the NWSL cause men will not, male dominated organizations will not. Outside the usa that is a hard task but inside the usa, many women exists who can invest millions solely or as part to a group.

Title: MLS next 25
Sports Illustrated for major league soccer's twenty fifth anniversary asked Bob Bradley and forward Carlos Vela, Atlanta United forward Josef Martínez, New England Revolution coach Bruce Arena, Toronto FC coach Greg Vanney and Nashville SC midfielder Dax McCarty questions about major league soccer.
I will focus on what Bob Bradley said, remember to use the links in the transcript to access more interviews.
Sports Illustrated asked bob bradley What direction does he want to see MLS take in the next 25 years?
I paraphrase him...Every team needs to have an identity or playing style, meaning if a team want to be like atletico bilbao in spain, that recruit players from a certain local or community only and consistently builds teams from their youth development that needs to be allowed alongside a team that does not want to have an academy and wants to buy big name players, all styles have to be accepted. It can not be every team must have a uniform identity/culture/style. This will lead to clubs in the usa being known that find players and gives opportunities OR grows players from certain communities OR does both. Homegrown rights need to be thrown out the window. If a kid from los angeles wants to go to new york redbulls then let him. Handbrakes need to be taken off and the key is making everyone feel part of something. Academies that helped trained a player from twelve to sixteen need to get financial compensation when a player is sold. And relegation and promotion is needed. He comprehends a team like LAFC, that he coaches, spent money on a stadium or players wants a guarantee, but even though he does not know when rel/pro has to come in, he knows more opportunities has to come. If a small club, gets it acts together, provides opportunities, develops players, and can get from the fifth league and fourth league and third league, he said when he was at Staebek, a team in Norway, he was at a club that had people in it that felt staebek could go from fifth to first tier and when he was coaching there, Staebek had dropped from first to second tier, and the same people who believed staebek could make it to the first tier was still there.
... I, Richard Murray, have advocated everything Bradley suggested from the beginning as a youth soccer player in the united states of america. I did not comprehended as a teenager why USsoccer didn't provide a system that allowed for more multiculturalism. PArt of that was my need for that system to exist to help me, the other was denial for in my heart I knew. The reality is, the first twenty five years of Major league soccer could had implemented a tiered system that allowed for teams to have twenty five years of honest identity development, a pay scale between clubs at tiers in transferring players, with relegation and promotion.
I repeat, that relegation and promotion tiered system that allowed identity development needed to be a fifty tiered league system, one tiered league for each state, the champion of the top tier in each state gaining entry into the US open cup. The simple system I just suggested would had allowed for the many communities in new york city or new york state, that love soccer , to start small teams and for twenty five years brew into a stable tiered league, that would have more competition,local rivalry, while an overall smaller fiscal footprint, than any other sport in new york city or state.
The saddest thing, and it relates to the prior section in this round, is my suggestion can be applied to the womens game better than the mens. The NWSL is suffering cause it needs a better design. Florida for example has a soccer loving community. If Florida had a tiered womens league, and the champion of florida was the sole member of the us open cup for women , that would open up clubs in florida to compete with each other and florida could be a hotbed state, where marta/lady andrade/sydney leroux/alex morgan can all play for better salaries on superteams next to a haitian womens team built from local investors working through an academy linked straightly to the haitian womens team and likewise for jamaica or cuba or puerto ricos women. The franchise model found stability in the mens game, but the franchise model is not building the womens game correctly and if anything making the nwsl, which is one of the best womens leagues in the world less desired by Non Concacaf players en mass. and eventually that will turn the NWSL into a subpar league. The tragedy being NWSL at twenty five, it may be said was from elite to subpar.

Title: Ask Rich

In the first edition of the Ask Rich section, I will explain that this is and will be a section where I answer questions, from the audience
Mustafa Gabr, remember his profile links are in the transcript, asked,  Who do you think will win the Champions League, and why?
Well, the current champions league results show many teams are on thin ice and are one bad result from being knocked out. With that being said, the team I choose to win the UEFA champions league is Paris Saint Germain.
Now the better question is why? Why will I , who loves defense, loves strategy, choose a team like PSG that has never defended decently this entire season, has a coach that is shaky strategically, has players who showed and show an out of control temperament upon failure or setbacks. Why Paris Saint Germain?
First, Neymar. Neymar never made it to this stage of the Champions League with Paris Saint Germain before, and Neymar is the key player at PSG. He does not finish as well as icardi, track back defensively as well as cavani, have the speed of mbappe, play that more strict wide support role like di maria But, he is the best artists on the team and on his day, orchestrates the midfield, scores goals, provide assists, makes runs for players , while make a strong tackle, that no other player on psg has singlehandedly did. and, PSG never had that individual brilliance in a second leg they needed to win.
Second, Paris Saint Germain at their best. For all of PSG's instabilities or woes, at their best, no team in UEFA has more danger. Consider that PSG can play di Maria/cavani/icardi/mbappe as a four in front of gueye/neymar/verratti in front of thiago silva/kimpembe/marquinhos we are talking the best squad in terms of recognized players on the planet with four globally known dangerous players in the forward line, three globally known centerbacks in the defensive line and a midfield with the second best talisman in the beautiful game, i will give messi the top, a midfield engine in gueye comparable to an ngolo knate or matuidi and in verratti a midfield specialists who not only has skill in passing but skill in the tackle.  PSG at their best, given the best most daring alignments by their coach, can defeat any other team. It is rare that you can say a team on paper is better than another, more often today, most teams shirt is why you deem their players better than anothers. But, PSG are truly loaded with talent, as mercurial as it is, as volatile, as weakly led by their coach, when at their best, they are the best in uefa. And I think put against the wall, they will be their best and fully healthy, that is more than any other team can handle.
Thank you Mustafa

Weekends 312020 #atleti #espanyol #galatasaray #genclerbirli #falcao #Donk  #realmadrid #barca #elclasico

Atletico MAdrid vs Espanyol- the historic number 2 teams in Madrid or Barcelona need a name. This was a battle.
Saul- It was a lovely one touch off the bounce.

Galatasaray vs Genclerbirli- The lions are flying,  They merely outclasses Genclerbirli.
Halftime goals- Ryan Donk and Falcao slotting a low cross.
Radamel Falcao- Great work again from the nigerian forward, whose work found the algerian who made a great pass to falcao

Real Madrid vs Barcelona- in the end, barca do not pass the ball quick enough. They do not have the legs collectively to track back or recover. Real Madrid were faster or quicker to react throughout the game and messi alone was not enough to undo the collective strength.yes barca had opportunities, but the team structure of real madrid was superior.  
Vinicius jr.- Samedo was getting tired of running after viniciusjr and Pique helped tap it in through the ball had a good angle to it.
Mariano- he came on last and near his first touch turned umtiti and then had ter stegen alone.

My thoughts composed while listening to Phil Schoen in interview side MArk Lincir


you watched gladbach! growing up cool, it was italian serie a for me. You supported the miami fusion:) did the fan groups for miami fusion survive in any form, maybe to transplant into inter miami? maybe some miami fusion fan leaders are leaders in inter miami fan groups? is the conference inter miami in better or worse for their first year success. I see your point that financial security was the worry but using the franchise model demanded the worry or need of the financial securities. I wish someone at the early days of the decision room to make MLS why they couldn't try 50 leagues, one for each state. That would have allowed for each states financial situation to brew a league safely and not have to blockade relpro in each or blockade various owners from various communities. I think MLS can financially/advertising wise reach fiscal revenue numbers rivaling any other league on earth by the time of 50 but I disagree that the quality of soccer or fanbases will rival other older leagues.I remember bradley's comment with staebek. The problem is, when soccer started in most countries on earth it was before the modern global sport industry that influenced ussoccer alot concerning MLS. So Klinnsman was jobs and loew was wozniak? I know mexico will be strong but what teams in concacaf offer the best challenge to blockade the usa. I don't think I will ever be able to separate my fandom from my punditry , but I try to assess positives or negatives in both sides, especially concerning strategy. What is a team trying to do and how do they execute it? Not is what they are trying to do right or wrong. The youngest USmnt prospects have a very positive possibility. great point about basketball/hockey/soccer where the natural movement goes against the stops natural in the gridiron/baseball/cricket. The sad thing is when people like phil scheon or myself asked humans to accept human error, so many humans were against it. Conspiratorial question, did the NFL /NBA financial owners influence financial owners in soccer to implement VAr to make soccer more stop and start. Good point, the injuries of the phenomeno hurt his media image, though I think cr7 /mesi were aided by Phenomeno's time in that media or others wanted to protect the next best more. I think MArk asked the wrong question. The question isn't whether the usa or any country can produce kids that play what some call nice or beautiful soccer. The goal is to learn how to aid kids in sharpening the style of soccer they naturally like to play. If a kid likes to stay up high and focus on scoring, that does not mean that kid is not playing nice or beautiful soccer, but that kid requires certain strategies to be successful.You should be able to have a long career not holding the ball up well or passing well or pulling markers, or able to break offsides, but a player that loves to score when given a chance. Not all systems fit a goal poacher. Stop trying to mold one system, but accept all players and all systems, that is to me, the most functional goal. As someone who knows basketball in nyc well, basketball never had more love grassroots after they took the parks from iner cities. A time existed when basketball was played in so many parks by so many age groups, that generated the love more than any Nike camp. good point to the possibility of falling out of love with soccer. The hey is what gets your attention, is it goals or the fluidity of the sport? good point, ownership , especially in fiscal capitalism is free, and who does not want to be free. I am happy for you reaching a level of freedom and hope you get a greater level.

Copa Libertadores 2/2/2020 #santos #defensa #halcon #peixe #cap #penarol #Furacao #Copalibertadores2020

Santos vs DEfense and Justice- a patchy game, to many mistakes from either. But santos looked sharper as time went on and defensa made too many mistakes.
Juan Gabriel Rodriguez-  free header from a set piece, rugby collective movement.
Jobson Souza Santos- diving header from a cross past two defense defenders.
Kaio Jorge- hustle and deflection, hustle and deflection. The first touch by Jorge off the deflection made the goal.

Athletico Paranaense vs Penarol- Penarol is in modulation and Diego Forlan is trying to do as in the uruguayan national team, focus on defense first. IT had value but was not strong enough, Penarol will have to improve. Paranaense are on this high, their management is efficient and it shows on the pitch, they have a way and implement it well.
Guilherme Bissoli- the back heel goal, brilliant, the cross came in from a decent move from the paranaense winger but the penarol defender had to stand their ground.

Copa Libertadores 3/4/2020 #copalibertadores #palmeiras #tigre #flamengo #Junior

Palmeiras vs Tigre- Tigre always seemed second best in the match. Palmeiras is not the most dangerous, but they a good set of players, great to see Ramires.
Luiz Adriano- He was allowed atop the Tigre box and he showed great hesitation and placement to make the goal.
Willian- Tigre was down a man after a red card foul and Palmeiras cut them open in a counter, he left circa 83:50

Flamengo vs Junior F.C.
Everton Ribeiro - lovely wide play, ribeiro came in from midfield and made a ovely placed strike.
Everton Ribeiro- the pass from gabriel barbosa, the wide play cutting through lines and crossing low through lines. the finish by Ribeiro, quality.
Teofilo Gutierrez- the header that laid of to gutierrez was brilliant. Defensive reactions by Flamengo were slow all match.

Weekends 3/8/2020 #galatasaray #sivassport #MUFC #MCFC

Galatasaray vs Sivasspor- it is a race, The draw, keep the top four as they are, after defeating Fenerbache as we did, I am content with what the team can do , long term, Nice to read Onyekuru is trying to stay in Galata
Ferghouli- the long cross from Ryan Donk, the header from Falcao, the strike from Ferghouli
Emre Kilinc - Muslera saved it but it dropped back to Kilinc who scored, Sivasspor is top four this season

Manchester United vs Manchester City- no kdb to start, and guardiola's defense is as it is, during his coaching career, shaky
Martial- he misses sitters, he miss assists but if you give him enough times he will score, though MCFC's defensive lack of quality shows itself again, their keeper wow

Santos vs Delfin- Santos are in no way stable as a team, seem to be in a battling phase. Sampaoli as a coach is not a long term coach, nor does he make a team better than when he found it

Palmeiras vs Guarani - Palmeiras in front of a packed crowd, handled Guarani. Guarani never looked threatening to Palmeiras, not in any honest stretch. The Luiz Adriano Hat trick was nice to see, another Brasilian player, happy in brasil, it seems.

UEFA CHampions league 3112020 #PSG #Dortmund #neymar #bernat #atleti #colcheneros #liverpool #simeone #Klopp

PSG Dortmund- When PSG are hungry, they will defeat anyone
Neymar-The diving header, he left his man to reach the ball and headed it properly, Neymar has been busy practicing his skills. Lovely header, and his goal was first, again, Neymar is the talisman in PSG.
Players celebrating in the bannisters while psg fans are outside

Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool- People hyped Liverpool based on their media footprint, not the truth. Atletico Madrid is in the past five season a better team in the uefacl than Liverpool.
Wijnaldum- Wijnaldum separated from Savic, and had a free header, firminho made the assist
Marcos Llorente 1 - Allison made a mistake, but the speed of reaction, placement , was all Llorente
Marcos Llorente 2 - Morata made great work, lovely wide proper forward play and great cross, Liverpool rely on Van Djik to defend, they do not defend as a team and that leads to their defeat, and was the same for klopp's prior team dortmund
Alvaro Morata - the game killer, Liverpool was stretched

Richard Murray Thoughts Round 14  https://www.kobo.com/us/en/audiobook/richard-murray-thoughts-round-14-1


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: Players Choice
Daniel Sturridge, Eric Dier, Ronaldhino have one thing in common; they each made choices that were deemed illegal or criminal, but in each you see a bigger problem. The role of media in relating sports stars is the problem. I will segway... A film , titled The Natural, based on a book having the same title < the film did not mirror the plot in the book> had a character named Max Mercy, played by Robert Duvall. I quote Max MErcy side Roy Hobbs from the film.
Max Mercy say: They come and they go, Hobbs. They come and they go. I'll be around here longer than you or anybody else here. I'm here to protect this game.
Roy Hobbs say: Whose game?
Max Mercy say: I do it by making or breaking the likes of you.
Roy Hobbs say: Did you ever play ball, Max?
Max Mercy say: No, never have. But I make it a little more fun to watch, you see. And after today, whether you're a goat or a hero... ...you're gonna make me a great story. See you around.

The Dialog between Max Mercy the Newsman side Roy Hobbs the athlete was prophetic, inspired by a nineteen hundred and fifty four book. It encapsulate the modern reality very well. The media learned in the past it could control the image in the fanbase or viewers to athletes, absent having athletic experience or an unwarranted role as protector in a sport. A subsegway is the notion to all news was prophetic in the Film NetWork by Paddy Chayefsky. Back to the Natural, By making every athlete angel or devil, you take their humanity away, limiting their actions while limiting their relationship to the viewers/listeners/fanbase who are human in their own mind.
Why does this matter? Back to Daniel Sturridge/Eric Dier/Ronaldhino, when each is presented in the standard of angel or devil, their successes are milked by fiscal global firms, while their failures are milked by government agencies.
Daniel Sturridge made comments to his brother that was deemed insider trading. What is insider trading? It is when someone knows of something supposedly inside the operations that is not commonly known, even if it is public. Sturridge knew events in turkish soccer and told his brother. His brother was deemed betting on knowledge given by Sturridge.
But what is the problem? Insider trading is common. You think all the goldman sachs former employees working in the various levels of government in the usa, do not help goldman? Of course, but these actions may not be deemed insider trading or reviewed by law enforcers who pick and choose the cases to approach. What is the argument pro sturiddge. He is being targeted cause he is an athlete, not cause he made statements revealing insider information. Media have placed Sturridge in the breaking zone. The world is full of tier two soccer leagues. Are you telling me, tier two soccer all over earth has no incidents of gambling cheaters based on insider information?
Eric Dier leaped in stands and punched a fan, after said fan had an altercation side a blood brother to Dier. In my life I saw countless number of fights break out between fans that led to nothing, not one imprisonment or chastisement to a fan. What Dier did as a paid athlete was costly to him, financially or legally. But if Dier was a fan in the stands, it would had led to nothing.
Why the variance? Media , as Mercy alluded to, live by focusing their prose on athletes, not the fans. A fan throws a punch or object to another fan or an athlete, their name is not mentioned. They receive a non fiscal penalty.An athlete throw a punch or object, as a fan, and they are signs of evil, signs of cultural decay, signs of immaturity, signs to something negative that warrant financial plus legal penalty. That is called inequality.
Ronaldhino attempted to get into Paraguay, to do a charity event which I learned from Maria Ceci Britos solely in media, by using a fake passport. Fake passports are illegal. Ronaldhino had problems getting a passport based on his supposed, or unconfirmed, tax issues in his native brasil. Sequentially, Ronaldhino had two crimes, some sort of tax evasion <note I have no evidence that Ronaldhino is financially empty> and illegal immigration.
I remember in the United States of America when the entire banking industry fell, absent any illegal manipulation or all on its own, and they were too big to fail. Banking firms owed billions of dollars and the most powerful government in the world, first Bush jr and second Obama, thought the debtors warranted a welfare check. In the United States of America today, millions of illegal immigrants suggest that they warrant a pardon for their illegal immigration based on their non violent labors, criminally offensive clean records. Why is Ronaldhino's tax situation unforgivable, like Joe Louis of yore? Why is Ronaldhino's illegal immigration warranting a grand stand, when it is for charity, a lifelong activity for him? Simple answer to either question, whether people think Ronaldhino is a goat or the hero, he makes a highly retweeted, reshared, liked, etraffic driving story. If Ronaldhino was a CEO of a tech firm owing taxes or trying to get into another country illegally or some unknown athlete trying to do a charity, he is not reported by media. why? The ceo's or unknown athletes, whether goats or heros , do not earn highly retweeted , reshared, liked, etraffic driving story.

The problem is the players choices are judged before they make them. Everything the modern professional athlete does is already judged in media before they do it.  Players are like pinballs, their choices the pins, but the media is the table. The table is so intricate, no matter where the pin direct the pinball, the table guides the ball into a slot predetermined and absent the control of the player, the fans are the player,  to deem better or worse, only to witness.
And, the Corona Virus affect on Sports media displays how strong media have guided sports. Human beings can enjoy many various activities. But, in modernity, sport has become the relaxer. While: books can have themes a person does not want to read or interpret, films can have a theme a person does not want to view or pay attention to, Craft requires a time or patience some may not want to exhibit. Sport can be enjoyed absent interpretation, paying attention, or exhibition. One can watch sport relaxed on a couch or chair, in a near meditative state, not acutely doing anything. This ability is why sport is massive to the population on earth. It is one of the few entertainments that does not require or ask anything to the viewer or listener or attendant. If you take eyes off a book you can not read it, if you stop listening to an audiobook or film you will miss key parts, but sport with the MAx MErcy's in modernity can immerse you in a world of sounds/sights/flexing energy while you do nothing, allowing you to do nothing. Sequentially, the attendants in the stadiums or at home, accept the judgments from the Max MErcy's in modernity, cause they do not want to think. IF the fan thinks, they think to the job they can not stand, the homelife that is uncomfortable, the world that is unfair. The human fan does not want to consider humanity, and sport allows them that better than any film or book or craft, each that demand a human caring or concern to act on.
Considering, I am in the Max MErcy role as you listen to this, I can not say I am not as much the problem, I hope I am not. But what is important or what is vital, is not to make an angel or demon out of athletes, while accept they can be a role model or a living example to caution. Allow the athlete paid or unpaid to be human, allow sport to be human, choose to find out how your life away from scheduled matches or stadiums can be truly happy, can massage you the way watching sport does. If the fear brought on by yourself, the media, during the corona virus's spread can help you choose to live happy away from sport, then it is worth it.

Title: Women lead Women

I have followed womens soccer for over fifteen years solid. I watched women soccer go from something only seen through the womens world cup and otherwise streaming to modern broadcasts and all sorts of media outlets. The one constant in womens soccer's life is male controlled organizations. From FIFA to CONCACAF, CONMEBOL, CAF, AFC, UEFA, OCeania, to every football association. Womens Soccer is at the mercy of a male dominated football association.
The question is simple, if a male controlled organization never shows willingness to aid women to the best of their ability, then do women need their own organization. I suggest every confederation and FIFA , the federation of international football associations, double in membership. I suggest every football association split between a mens organization and a womens organization.
For example, the Unites States Soccer Federation, USSF, can split itself in two. The male half will have the current president and current board of the current USSF handling the united states mens national team , male under sixteen and younger , major league soccer and united soccer leagues while the female half will have a whole new structure or system altogether handling the united states womens national team, the national womens soccer league, girls under sixteen and younger.
Karina Leblanc , an ambassador to the game, former canadian keeper, made a great speech to women asking them to lead. I am a male, a grown male or man, and I know she is correct. Can anyone deny that the human community on earth has few male communities that can be trusted to do better by women? In the united states of america female first ladies absent an executive or legislative role are treated negatively trying to perform their symbolic role, to be a symbol of greater unity among the fifty states. Hillary clinton was booed trying to formulate universal healthcare for all that she did not have the ability to legislate or execute but wanted to give time to construct functionally. Laura Bush was ignored trying to improve the library system that many rely on in the USA for books or internet or a place to enjoy the day. Michelle Obama was chastised for trying to help children be more physically active. In Brasil, young girls are still ridiculed for wanting to be athletes, even soccer players, till they no longer desire anything but to be the wife of a man the family chooses for them. In Egypt, aunts or uncles, fathers or mothers, still prepare their daughters for clitoris cutting. In Paris, how many Eastern European girls fill the less advertised streets drugged to remain prostitutes for the rest of their lives, trying to flee poverty in their native homes. In India, how many female children are sold to pay debts from or make better lifestyles to their parents against total strangers.
Can men change their relationship to women more positively? yes. Is it better for women to wait for men to accept them at the table or for women to make their own table? That is my question, as a man, I say it is better for women to make their own table.
Carlos Cordeiro, the recently former president of the United States Soccer federation, lost his job after he posted a letter and court case reveals were made public. The letter he submitted had no purpose in making the USSF case against the USWNT better; it made it worse, merely stating USSF opposition. The public court papers,thank Meg Linehan side friends for trying to get through the over two thousand page deposition, was the final nail in his removal. Coca cola, the global firm, made a public tweet demanding a private talk and their commitment to gender equality , and Cordeiro was out, and a new temporary president Cindy Parlow Cone,a female, was put in. As a point of note, I searched on google, president ussf, and carlos cordeiro came up.
In the United States of AMerica, where an outcry , called MeToo commonly, led to many public criminalizations of males in sport or media in the USA. Is it not telling that Cordeiro did not even consider the negativity in his actions or their potential reply or result for him? If Women in the USA , whose merit is unquestioned in terms of trophies won, can be treated negatively, then what chance do women in places in humanity less supportive to females?
How long can women wait for men to give up power to stand equally aside women? In my polling and replies, some of the public ones I placed in the transcript, none of the private I shared. I learned a few things in culmination. Men in the replies are more willing to see football associations split than women, let women have the power and make the best of it. Women see more value ,long term, in men changing for the better and not having to start an organization from scratch even if the cost in abuses exist.
In the end, this issue for me is not about right or wrong but expediency. How can womens soccer be better supported by football associations now? The male controlled bureaucracy , globally or in each football association, show no sign of making it possible now.  Women, is it truly worth the wait?

Title: Corona Virus

In the first segment of this edition, I stated that the affect of the Corona Virus will give humans a chance to be happier away from sport as a human. Another aspect is the governance in the sporting world. Was all in the sporting world unprepared? yes. But what hindered the reactions from the sporting world... the global economy. What people do not comprehend is modern finance reacts so fast, trades in such a high volume, that whenever a little bobble occurs it causes quakes. The sporting world is financially unstable. The reasons are not mismanagement as much as fitting the global model. In the soccer world, you have a global set of banks, utilities, airlines, real estate operators, whose businesses rely on the movement of players, their residencies, their contracts aside the contracts of sports clubs and their various financial dues. Unlike any other sport, soccer has financial movement between continents in the billions. A system supported by the mesh of national banks, private banks, trading houses using electronic tools commonly called the global economy. Every single sporting industry know a stall in profits will bring instability to all involved: teams/leagues/players/coaches/trainers/stadium staff/specific media et cetera. The answer is clear, it is time to stop the dysfunctional financing, the debt financing. Major League Soccer teams are mostly unprofitable, meaning they end the fourth quarter in the red, and yet they keep getting money infused into them. That business model has to stop.People say socialism is making strides in the majority consciousness. But, fiscal capitalism in its inability to be applied honestly from those in power is the problem. Why not have a forced share of resources, revenue, when the market is rigged for failed firms to be too big to fail? when huge firms are buying back their stock to break even? when global sports brands can be in the red but can be annually given infusions placing the wealthiest in a somehow allowable debt? It is time for the sporting world, and everything outside the sporting world to own up to its fiscal reality. The Corona Virus proves, debt is not currency. Debt can not accumulate forever, cause resources are not forever. It is time to restructure towards true stability even if that lowers the revenue possibilities. It is time to deflate the costs of tickets, salaries of players, value of sponsors. The Corona Virus prove it is time , to lower the damn rent.
Title: Good Thoughts

I have no sport based good thoughts OR ask rich segment , the sporting world is taking a hiatus for source material, but I want to tell people it is good seeing people post jokes online and I hope everyone gets to reading, enjoying being around their loving ones, make something, even tiny like wittle wood, that is the craft I hope to do if my writing ends and time permits. still go outside and breath in the air, don't act unhealthily, you know what you like to do, don't deny those things if you do not have to. An unhealthy spirit can not help a body. Have fun folks. Be Safe, I don't know when the next edition will be, but I imagine this will be an extended season.
If you truly have to get a fix on soccer, check out liga mx in mexico or the turkish superlig, currently still on.
Well, again, be safe, be happy, have fun, remember to calm down and don't let all the apocalyptic movies in the past twenty years get to your head. In the transcript, linked in the description, is a link to an informative website for the corona virus

Players Choice- Daniel Sturridge, Eric Dier, Ronaldhino have one true opponent, the media. An opponent that attacked their forebears and will their futures. Hopefully the response to the Corona virus from their fans may truly go against the grain.
Women lead Women- If men are in control of a thing, can women afford to wait for men to share control?
The Corona Virus- The sporting world is put on hiatus because of it. Can fans cognize the need to adjust the entire financial structure of the sporting world, and then force the owners to do that?

Football Bankruptcy

The chief of saint etienne stated that Ligue1 side ligue2 clubs can become bankrupt. But, that is the biggest problem. In fiscal capitalism bankruptcy is a necessary as well as needed tool. It may be negative, but the function it serve is to allow faulty or dysfunctional or erroneous or negative fiscal practices or practitioners to be exited from the fiscal market. Ronald Reagan was the president when I was born and he started what I call the reagan presidential era. Every president in the usa after reagan , meaning bush senior to trump, plus reagan himself had similar policies. All of them gave huge amounts to the military. All of them have dysfunctional or negative financial activities. All of them have negative infrastructure plans. Those three tenets are seen throughout the reagan era. The one that is important to global football is the financial activities. Reagan cut funding from infrastructure, gave large fiscal firms more leeway. That financial act is the founding of the modern global financial situation. As a kid I learned about the early eighties and later on cognized larger truth. The reagan presidential financial acts allowed losing, bankrupt firms to escape bankruptcy. That is the great flaw and a constant message in the reagan era. In the usa so many firms financial footing is false. How many large firms near bankruptcy sold themselves to escape it? how many firm , tech industry especially, had share trading based wealth but not true market wealth? Later said firms had to be cut up and sold continually, look at the entertainment industry? Look at sports how many sports leagues have fiscally losing teams but get annually propped up, all sports leagues in the usa for example? 

The one idea that connect the financial environment from Ronald reagan to Donald Trump across all industries, is the ability large firms have to escape bankruptcy, to escape losing it all, to escape all their worth being worthless, to escape cleaning up an industry.

I recall countless time people said, today has more money than today or in today's wealth. But the corona virus scenario has displayed the falseness to many financial schemes or opinions, that are broken absent constant fiscal activity, a constant globally active free market. Absent the regular schedule being unbroken, all the debt, all the over spending, all the insufficient revenue take on a value beyond the largest firms reckoning. Thus, sport leagues and teams are in financially dire situations. BUT, that is aright, let them fall, let sports teams or leagues that can't handle it fall. Out of the ashes, better organized leagues or teams can be formed. Bankruptcy allows for rebooting, readjustment, that by default is needed. 

The sporting world did not do wrong in high salaries or ticket prices or infinite sponsorship deals, the sporting world did wrong in not admitting what leagues or teams are truly earning the value they are advertised. The English premier league is erroneous. West Ham united should not have a value higher than Galatasaray. It is financially negative , though seemingly profitable , activity that led to such a scenario. 

If league 1 or 2 or any other teams are bereft the funds to survive then let them die. The stadiums will go to sale. The offices will be closed and office space will be for sale. And if wise, the proper value of these items will be listed on the market. Players contracts will have to end, but players need to be wiser about their money as well. 

I am not against the sporting world, but if the hiatus in sporting activity lead to an end of many leagues or teams in all sports all over the earth, then that is a blessing, that is good. Evading bankruptcy is what led to most of the negative financial scenarios now. The global  banks, goldman sachs or company, many tech firms, apple computer, all airlines, yes all airline firms, should not be here today. They should had filed for bankruptcy and been eliminated from the market place. Yes, I know, evading bankruptcy is the norm, but that is why the global market is easily disrupted. Only bankruptcy ends the financial heritage that led to going bankrupt in the first place. Debt matters, revenue matters, controls or regulations to industries matter. Many people in the usa in the past or today battle over government regulation or standards to industries. But it is clear the problem is not merely the absent of regulations but the absence of firms willing to regulate themselves. Regulation is needed cause in fiscal capitalism too many people are willing to maintain a flimsy or negative financial hold as long as they can. How many websites would be up today or what will the internet look like if websites had regulation? Yes, regulation makes profiting slower, makes fiscal activity narrower, but the goal of the regulation is to make solid industries that can handle a wide array of fiscal situations, like when the ebb or flow of the global market is blockaded by a response to a virus. 

I love the beautiful game, but I think it will be better, globally or long term, if all soccer leagues or clubs, go bankrupt if they need to. Hopefully, then, other voices, will be able to enter the administration and demand not merely larger multiracial, gender/phenotype/age/et cetera, presentation but also change the financial model to be honest, and not rigged or based on complex and at their base negative financial footings. 

... as I never like to present a pulpit absent placing my position I will using the following.

In the USA , fast food chains are all over the place. But, do you know the fast food chain I respect the most? ... think on it for a second? The answer is... White Castle. Now some of you may say? White Castle. Yes, but I will tell you why. White Castle is not franchised. White Castle is a privately owned firm, a second generation mom and pop business I like to call a family business. Why does this matter. WHite castle does not have the stock market to manipulate its value. White Castle made and make its money and at some years grown, other years or most years, been stable. But white castle never grows beyond its means. Where I live, in NYC, is a geographic community called HArlem, that is in manhattan. A business in that community is called Famous Fish. They were started by a Black couple. Their children kept up the business and now they have three. What is the point? 

Whether Famous Fish or White Castle, owning your own firm allows you to expand, can be done by any one in any racial category, but has a financial honesty that need to be breathed into all industries, and the sporting industry need it badly. 

It is time to for clubs to have 100 million to pay a player, not use each season to help pay the yearly installments. You want to pay a player 100 million over ten years, then you need to have 100 million in the bank now and provide 10 million per year to that player. It is time to force every team/league to own up to what it has, stop using yearly funds to prop up the debt their expenses they can not pay for incur. 

It is time to allow a sport team to play in a stadium with one stand and a muddy pitch. It is time to make tickets affordable. The hype has to die, the truth need a chance. Truth will be hard cause many a former big time owner/coach/player will find themselves next to most of the bitcoin millionaires, absent money in reality.

The problem with Samantha Lewis's article is her opening positions. Free Market Capitalism by default allows for a firm to make choices. No one forced clubs or leagues to accept broadcast money. No forced clubs to spend on wage bills they can not afford and sequentially be bound to sponsorship or broadcast money. No one forced clubs to under utilize or under finance their youth systems or for football associations to under finance development programs. The reason why those aspects will not be addressed is based on a simple truth. Clubs/Leagues/football associations are free to do otherwise at any time. Atletico Bilbao doesn't choose players outside the basque country. Were they originally forced to do this? no. They freely chose to. Do various sponsors or broadcasters or pundits speak ill or try to suggest or demand they change? yes. Do they change? no. The representation or participation of women in clubs/leagues/football associations is something either are free to make better. She is correct that women's sport need time to grow, an argument I often have to state repeatedly. But her second flaw is the solution. She repeatedly ask for change to favor womens sport, at the least to be neutral to mens sport, in the beautiful game. But, that is not the solution. Women must own. Women must become administrators. WIll men block women from owning clubs/running leagues/running football associations ? yes. In the same way men block other men, but women must become the owners/the administrators and when they do they can then dictate.

The Association of Nigerian Women In Sports has made a public appeal. Considering the way money and government work in nigeria, a public appeal may sway.



Happy to see Kenya supporting their female players. In the end, the idea is simple, leave no one behind.

PSG can get pogba , with thiago silva/cavani leaving that is circa 600,000 euros and then with the sale of sarabia/draxler/verrati they are combind circa 400,000 euros. that leave psg with circa 1,000,000 euros to get pogba and have change for a recontract of et cetera. They have gueye who they can give a contract boost to thus post after this uefacl
Di Maria/Neymar/Icardi/Mbappe (choupo moting/Jese)
Gueye/Pogba (paredes/herrera)
Navas (areola)
a 424 pogba and gueye is like pogba and kante. And when a 334 is wanted, merely take out an attacker like di maria and put in herrera. also , for all the matches in french soccer, you can use choupo/jese to rest neymar/mbappe/icardi among the lesser clubs.
