    Richard Murray Thoughts Version 2

    When I began punditry on sport, it was confined in online locale to my material, still is. I looked and learned through various other formats or Ideas to create my own place. Past blogging, I thought to use Ebooks, my most common format. EBooks can utilize audio and are a clear way to lineate your actions. I made the Kings of London Epic Poem Series and Richard Murray's Thoughts Series reflecting that truth. But, Ebooks were and are not the most used format to messages through the internet. Sport require common channels be used, if you have not figured out how to use an uncommon channel more imaginatively while attention getting, base on saturation in sport viewers to modern media. I thought to audio blog, The Richard Murray Fanatacism Audible, while collate from some of my favorite womens soccer connections, Richard Murray's Fanatacism, or strictly from the players, The Players Say. I gained more outreach but I found myself acting in similar to what others were doing. I find myself now starting a new endeavor, in this AALBC blog entry, like the Audible but absent the strict format. Now, Richard Murray's Thoughts Version 2 is here. I will post in the comments in this blog, any are free to join me,and state my thoughts. But the content or style will now be free.

    Richard Murray Thoughts Version 2

    Jose Mourinho at BeinSports I provide my postface as a preface here. I concur to mourinho. In the end what I gather from his words is, he thought he could be successful in MUFC gardless the administrative problems but some bad breaks made the mountain too high. I love how he praised players like cech/drogba whom were joys to coach and how he enjoyed the younger days to hazard/willian. I love what he said about repsonsibility on leagues/teams/confederations outside uefa to demand more from uefa coaches , especially to help their local coaches. Didier Drogba- I love what he said about Didier Drogba. I quote:"mr abrahamovic, pay and don't speak" this explains mourinho's problem, he likes to tell the money what to do and is willing to go to clubs whose owners want to be coaches on the side To his second phase:"you are not number 1 but i need you here"- this explain what he wanted in zlatan but when zlatan got hurt it changed everything "players like that of that character are important from first day in their career to the last day" this is what he tried to find in pogba/lukaku but they are not better leaders than didier https://twitter.com/beINSPORTS/status/1085929729381740545 Picking CLubs- "coaches are much more dependent on the players we are more dependent on the choices we make" "some other guys are more clever than me on the choices"- like pep klopp I concur to his point, he has yet to take a comfortable team, like a barcelona/bayern munich/mcfc whose owners have huge pockets to spend on the best players, who have a cohesive strategy to how they want to play or at the least in mcfc case gave pep the license to make up the team identity. https://twitter.com/beINSPORTS/status/1085968418694561793 CR7 vs MEssi- I agree to Mourinho, I never compare players from different generations. consistency through time is th ekey to the success messi/cr7 have but what would earlier players like maradona/pele/garincha/eusebio have if they had a fitness team around them? https://twitter.com/beINSPORTS/status/1085966988575309824 Peter Cech- YOu can see he loves Cech. I admit, I love cech too. And like Drogba, he asked cech to do the same and guide and he did it. YOu can see how much mourinho loved cech as a number 2. When I think to keylor navas, real madrid have that kind of leader in goal. dedicated, serious, doesn't need to start, will fight for his position. https://twitter.com/beINSPORTS/status/1085928837836226560 Coaches from UEFA working outside UEFA- Great words, he feels coaches have to come to emerging markets be demanded more influential in information. Not just top coaches, but teachers I quote: "We are all colleagues, coaches" . "Don't you have time for coaches to think about the local coaches. The coaches come and go home and they take your money. I think they should give more here, but that is your responsibility" "You need to take more from them" strong words from mourinho. Remember he said it is up to administrators in emerrgine leagues to demand it from coaches from uefa to give more. teach https://twitter.com/beINSPORTS/status/1085926936403013632 Real MAdrid- He makes a good point, since he has left no manager did better in real madrid in la liga. This is true. https://twitter.com/beINSPORTS/status/1085924406319173634 His Best Team- Best team he has managed- I concur that inter side is the best he has managed. The success , the trophies lifted in that period. https://twitter.com/beINSPORTS/status/1085923891132809216 The Modern Player- "before the manager decide and you accept, now you need much more communication and the power more focused on one person must be shared. Instead of the manager being the guy telling you to go buy the newspaper" I quote again:"It is not about good boys, bad boys... our kids are different than us" Lovely quote when people say mourinho is out of touch., He admitted things need to be managed but this hopefully will quell silly mourinho out of tocuh comments, though it will not https://twitter.com/beINSPORTS/status/1085923667308011520 Disciplining- "The day a player is more important than the club , goodbye" The players must find a certain balance. "The manager is not their to coach them, not discipline them at any cost" He just outed the MUFC administration absent speaking their name. Saying it is up to the administration to make an environment where the players can work side the coaches co sharing responsibility, not merely in media but behind the scenes. But the ownerships have to set up that environment or coaches are doomed. Alex Ferguson back in administration is great for mufc to do that https://twitter.com/beINSPORTS/status/1085922276497776640 News- "Everything I did good with players is not news in modern football" "where you have troubles is when you have news" "It is a problem when a coach does not have the strcuture behind him side the player" He is right, the coach is not powerful enough to manage players. . Players can not have a direct relationship with coaches anymore. "For me a club must be very well organized, where the manager is only the manager not the man who is keeping the discipline" Outed MUFC again https://twitter.com/beINSPORTS/status/1085921699919323137 Young Coaches- Results stay forever. That is what makes you belong in a certain level. He called a spade a spade there. Coaches that try to play a certain away, or appease media end up being failure coaches that media suggest are good but the numbers say otherwise. I look at Henry at Monaco as a fine example. Cesc Fabregas is not what Monaco needed. Henry luckily has money to still coach wherever he is accepted but it is foolish to play up to media. get results and explain later. https://twitter.com/beINSPORTS/status/1085919225745571840 Style- PEople that win consistently will tell you otherwise. "where are the young ones with a real impact,in terms of results, where are they?" He is right, pochiteno, klopp, emri, sarri, tuchel don't have results. The pundits praise them but the owners want results. And if you don't provide it then... and even if tuchel does win it all in psg, even though he lost in the coupe de ligue recently so no perfect win, is he consistent, no way https://twitter.com/beINSPORTS/status/1085918842067582976 Future- he will coach top level but i think he will make a smart choice and that is why he is waiting. but what team and where, he has something up his sleeve https://twitter.com/beINSPORTS/status/1085918287123206144 MUFC- He says winning 2nd in mufc was one of his best achievements in his career, and he admits most will think it is crazy but he said it clearly, no one knows behind the scenes and that to me says it all https://twitter.com/beINSPORTS/status/1085917730413240320

    the 2018-2019 UEFA CL Round of 16 draw angers me cause it eliminates all my potential finals and lifts teams i can't stand to the next round. MCFC/Schalke - Schalke are a tough side but i worry that their defensive frailty or attacking softness will functionally give the run of play advantage to mcfc easily. One thing about guardiola teams, if you dont have an attack considered highest level or a defense considered highest level, you tend to not perform well against his teams. If Schalke do knock out mcfc, it will be the giant killing of the round. I think guardiola has to at least reach a final this season, to not do so require pundits to speak ill to his qualities in taking a team to the promised land. Considering the hype given to his coaching style from said media. Atletico MAdrid/Juventus - was one of my potential finals. Of course it is provided here.Both teams are skilled while honest defensively or they have sharp deadly patient attacks. This will be a battle of chicken side chess. Sad to see it now but it will be one of those matches where strategically intense fans will enjoy how all aspects of the game will be displayed, as both teams attack/defend/press/drop back/push forward together. I want atletico to go through as a colchenero but it will be close Manchester United/Paris Saint Germain- again another potential final for me. PSG have a very deadly attack but an unathletic midfield that is skill based and a defense that is prone to errors but otherwise high class. MUFC is a slow team that need to play in the air and can provide moments of attacking brilliance. The defense of manchester united need to work to handle the psg attack but it can be interesting how this plays out. A good battle, i think either coaches job is on the line. Tuchel nor Mourinho can afford to lose this, but one has too. Tottenham/Dortmund- the battle of youths. both teams are younger in collective average age than most others. Both teams are full of running. who knows the defensive condition to either team by the time next year they meet but dortmund looks defensively better now, though they must be careful to not understimate tottenham's ability to score under pressure. Any one's match but I sense down to the wire , unless tottenham or dortmund's youth have a bad collective first game. Lyon/Barcelona- my OL, why saint garrincha, my OL are attacking wise a team that can cut through any other. Defensively, my OL range from a top second tier side to a 4th tier side after a long night from beers. BArca have total danger, sharpened in attack. OL can defeat barca over two legs but the defense has to be sharper, individuals more skilled in unique scenarios. And then our attack must be the best for the two matches. I want OL to progress, it will be a huge upset, especially after Messi made his proclamation but, I will lie to say barca don't have the odds. Roma/Porto- the two luckiest sides in this round. They have a fair battle against each other. But that will make this tie probably the best to watch. All the other ties have one from two problem. Either two tops may not be in the same quality moment collectively or a known minnow will face a major team not ready. but these two team can face each other fairly over both legs the entire time and no one can expect one to be mightier than the other. Ajax/Real Madrid- Like MCFC , Real Madrid from all the top sides in fiance or table position have a soft opponent. For Real Madrid it is cool cause they are still unbalanced. and Ajax's youth can be exploited at times, though Ajax have some experience. The attacking power from real madrid is a danger to any team and I am not certain Ajax even prepared have the ability to handle it , especially considering the real madrid players see another potential round of 8 which can provide possible favorite opponents. Liverpool/Bayern- Klopp is in season for drama. But this is probably the worst of all matchups. Bayern know klopp weel, especially the players, they know how his teams play and know what to expect and bayern's experience makes them a dangerous opponent. They will not rush this, they will try to trap liverpool and one thing liverpool continually show under klopp, that dortmund did too, the defensive caring is soft and if the team slow down, they are truly open. Liverpool have a chance but Bayern can defeat them. https://twitter.com/ChampionsLeague/status/1074625746663018496

    30 years from now administrators in CONCACAF/CONMEBOL/CAF/AFC will lament how women's soccer in their confederation is less potent than UEFA. This article explains fully why. Women's soccer 15 years ago was all square among all the confederations. And, UEFA is moving fast quickly, cohesively, functionally, while all the other confederations at best have some glittering lights in themselves but nothing mirroring a collective plan. https://m.redgol.cl/amp/2018/12/pellejerias-de-la-conmebol-campeonas-de-la/?__twitter_impression=true%20via%20Fare%20Network

    Congratulations Nigeria/South Africa for making it to the World Cup in France and all the best in the AWCON2018 final. When last these two met in the same competition South Africa won and Nigeria against top opposition has had problems scoring. But south africa better be careful, facing an opponent a second time in the same cup tournament is always dangerous. BUT all is not over for Mali or Cameroon, if anything their next match is more potent, the winner of the third place goes to the world cup. Cameroon has the experience but Mali may surprise. To the QCAF the queens of caf, the reality is Nigeria earned the QCAF title every time the coronation was held outside Equatorial guinea. This will be a battle. I expect Nigeria finally showing up against a big team, only three big team in CAF womens game now, and Nigeria have yet to defeat any this tournament.It will happen in the final. But Will Nigeria /South Africa/Cameroon/Mali be inspired by their womens teams and make a fiscally competitive female league, taking advantage to their dominance over other sides in CAF? REVIEWS: Cameroon/Nigeria ; Mali/South Africa ; Third Place Match: Mali/Cameroon FInal Match: Nigeria/South Africa Cameroon defeated Mali 4-2 Nigeria defeated South Africa in penalties 4-3 ENDING THoughts Cameroon have become the third best team in CAF replaced by South Africa, who have invested decently in the Sasol LEague but this tournament proved Nigeria/South Africa/Cameroon need domestic league strength and have no argument not to have it. The Boston Breakers went bankrupt and players in the NWSL in the USA speak of financial difficulties in payment, player resources. Nigeria/South Africa have no excuse, if either fa switched the funding between the gender the womens leagues in either country will be a top league. I say why not. Take advantage to where you dominate. Nigeria or SOuth aFrica seem content to make womens soccer in caf subservient to womens soccer outside caf absent the fiscal need to, simply waiting for outside caf to grow financially and make it fiscal reality though it is not now

    Save Womens Soccer In The USA By Changing The Form I made a query to Thomas Rongen or Phil Schoen, both of them advocate supporting the beautiful game being played/owned/coached by either gender globally, concerning who is in control to women's soccer in the USA and what needs to change fiscally in the NWSL in particular. Phil Schoen replied I comprehend that financial truth. The problem is more than one way exist to lessen the fiscal burden. Schoen is correct, the sister club model is what is going on throughout UEFA. Just make women's clubs aside the men's clubs and the infrastructure cost lessen. But another solution exists. To end the NWSL/WPSL/UWS, bar interstate play, make 50 state leagues that can operate as they want internally <meaning franchise or relpro is their option>. And use the us open cup for women as a 50-champion side 14 runner up competition between these champions to decide the best team in the USA. By choosing the solution I suggest, you automatically lower the cost of operation for any team. The travel/hotel expenses are reduced drastically. The media sponsorship now connects to the markets any state league can attract and if the NFL is an example, you don't need a league to be a paid athletic sport globally to achieve global viewership. Sequentially, teams in state leagues can still achieve large sponsorship deals. But it will open up the opportunity for more teams in states to be born and relate to each other. And the US Open cup can be that binder to relate the leagues to each other as well as define a champion. but with only 64 teams in one off round cup tournament, only the finalist will have six games added to their state-based schedule. I comprehend Mr. Schoen's idea, and I imagine it has more followers or adherents among those in control of USSoccer or NWSL or MLS, than my own, in any way. Of the nine teams in the NWSL, five are owned by owners to an MLS team, while five play in stadiums aside an MLS team. Sequentially, most of the teams or interest in NWSL pulls toward Mr. Schoen's point. But my point is what can save the Washington Spirit, what can save Sky Blue FC, what could had saved the Boston breakers, what could had saved Western New York Flash from demoting itself, what could had saved FC Kansas City from being replaced by the Utah Royals. Some people want to invest in sport but don't have the finances to handle the business model from the NFL or want to be shareholders, where they cannot control what goes on in the club over a larger shareholder. I think US Soccer need to pull away from the exclusive owner group model from the NFL and utilize a more open ownership model. To do that, you have to lower the cost to own, not find more money to meet the ownership cost. If you lower the cost, I think more women will want to own teams, individually or collectively and that will long term have a greater effect throughout the women's side in the sport over time.

    UEFA womens champions league quarterfinals/semifinals OK, here are the quarterfinal pairs Slavia Praha/ Bayern Munchen - Slot A Barcelona / LSK Kvinner - Slot B Lyon / Wolfsburg - Slot C Chelsea / Paris Saint-Germain - Slot D the semifinal pairs Slot A / Slot B Slot C / Slot D Again, i am denied any possible final for my teams. as always. I will not speak on how i feel that bayern/barcelona get a free ride to the semifinals. though that semifinal will be tough. To Chelsea, a battle, plain or simple. PSG women have been second or less to OL year in or year out, constantly since the current ownership era engaged in the womens program. To be blunt, I think chelsea has the stability to survive a lose but if PSG lose, it will be a big blow. To my chelsea ladies, my london blue, they have the talent/skill/fitness to defeat PSG women but they must be sharp. PSG women have a knack of pulling off strong performances against top opponents. I really worry about the speed from PSG, it will be important for the london blue to be concise in movement, don't open themselves up to daringly, too soon. To my OL... this is war! Wolfsburg OL have met in two or three of the last five finals. Wolfsburg against OL always play to stifle OL. They will bunker, they will tackle, they will be mentally sharp, they will look to frustrate OL. Ol knows Wolfsburg. They must be patient, they must not think they can run through Wolfsburg. They know that. This is to be blunt, a five final run. If OL can win this season, it will not merely be the fourth UEFAWCL win in a row. It will be the crowning achievement in the OL feminin program. The only sadness is the world cup in france will come after this season where OL , the club core to france, will have such a battle. I forsee in the semifinal Bayern Munchen/Barcelona OL/Chelsea in the final I see.... drumroll!!! OL/Barcelona and OL for the win!!!!

    Juventus is my win for the UEFA CL 10-24-2018 PSG 2 NApoli 2 , Atleti 0 Dortmund 4 , Inter Milan 0 FC Barcelona 2 have one thing in common, not one team can defend absent the ball. All six team look porous and on the day will leak goals. At this point, I am certain Juventus is the favorite to win the UEFA champions League. Pundits praised Spaletti but losing 2-0 started when inter milan made the match a shootout. and in the end, barcelona was counterattacking. Pundits/media concerns preach the evangel to attacking soccer, but soccer is not about attack attack attack as the crowd at the theater of dreams likes to chant. The goal is not to attack, the goal is to play the beautiful game which include all aspect to the game, tackles, coverage, bunkering, and teams have pulled away from that to covet the praise from pundits/fans/media concerns/sponsors each who have a non athletic reason to want shootouts to be the norm.

    My original thought to Sarri led CHelsea Today proved Chelsea under Sarri will have a dip in form late in the season. Chelsea like Napoli under Sarri do not know how to control a game and the constant attack posture is causing fatigue already. David Luiz side Giroud led to the equalizing goal today against a MUFC squad who have issues communicating in set pieces. MUFC were scored through set pieces in both cases, not open play. To my favorite London BLue male player Willian. IT is a shame this man is not on a team where his crosses or passing has better finishers. He could lead in the assist category in UEFA if he had people to finish his assist over the season at chelsea.

    CONCACAF Womens Championship reflect the same reality in either gender in CONCACAF Many opined that female soccer need Football Associations, Confederations in F.I.F.A. <Federation International Football Associations>, or F.I.F.A. itself to invest in women programs. I disagree and the reason is how male soccer grew. In modernity, through global communication platform like the internet, many multilog exist on gender equality aside female improvement to equal male standard; in any said log one factor in improving the female position is miscomprehension to how the male position grew. I paraphrase Womens Soccer Fr: “Seeing the quality of the game and the blatant inequality between Panama and the USA (logic once again), it is time for CONCACAF, FIFA and Associations to respond to the creation of genuine women's Programmes” https://twitter.com/WomensSoccerFr/status/1049067362509639680 I do not deny that the F.F.F. <French Football Federation> made Clairefontaine that assisted in developing many player in France, male or female. I do not deny that governments, like from China, finance or organize plans to invest in futebol. I do not deny that Con.Me.Bol <Confederation Sudamericana futebol> created the first confederation flag tournament the Copa America. I do not deny a role exist to any football association, confederation, government, or F.I.F.A. itself in developing the beautiful game. The truth is, the community from clubs is the historical backbone to player development in the beautiful game globally. Absent Liverpool or Manchester United do England win a world cup? Absent FC Barcelona or Real Madrid do Spain win a world cup? Absent AC Milan or Juventus or Inter Milan do Italy win world cups? Absent Santos or Botafogo or Palmeiras or Cruzeiro or Flamengo do we get the Pele or Zico eras in Brazilian futebol? If no Bayern or Gladbach or Hamburg existed do Germany win world cups? Clubs develop players better than any other organization in soccer. Sequentially, when all who want to see female soccer grow look at flag team disparity, a reality visibly present in the CO.N.C.A.C.A.F. <confederation of north central american and caribbean association football > Womens Championship, we must focus on woman clubs over all other organizations in player development. To that end, every single female flag team need more people to make a long robust financial investment in a female club in their country, including starting clubs. The reality is the United States Womens Soccer Team while strong in it confederation, is not in a situation like Germany or France in the Union of European Football Associations <U.E.F.A.> where the competitive strength between flag bearers is real or growing, does not have a strong enough domestic competitive league to be competitive long term. The sad fiscal truth is no one can force another to invest in sport; one can try to convince but no one can force. In Panama, Trinidad, Costa Rica, Cuba, Jamaica who is trying to convince those who have money in said countries to start clubs for women or finance sister department in male clubs to long term or evergrowing purposes? And, the shame is, the male game in CO.N.C.A.C.A.F. prove the point. The caribbean zone in CO.N.C.A.C.A.F. has more members than any other zone in said confederation<31 member>. The North American zone has only three member, those three member include the most fiscally dominant flag in modernity and two other who are way above all other in the confederation. The central american zone has seven member who are on average fiscally above any in the caribbean zone. Financially, the North American zone members have fiscally wealthy communities who can start clubs or leagues. The Central American zone has less than but more than the Caribbean zone on average. While the Caribbean Zone on average is the fiscally poorest region in CO.N.C.A.C.A.F., from a distance, fiscally affluent persons do exist in the Caribbean or the Caribbean community living throughout humanity who can afford to finance clubs long term. The question, is the Caribbean Football Union <C.F.U.> setting up a club system that can help convince people who have Caribbean ancestry, wherever they live, to invest. In entertaining convincing or regaling fashion, Panama recently defeated Mexico in the CO.N.C.A.C.A.F. Womens Championship. Mexico just started a league for women last year and Panama just restarted their female flag program after a ban, I think seven year. But, Alexi Lalas in the prior match Panama played against the U.S.A. suggested the keeper to Panama, Yenith Bailey, warranted a college scholarship. I have nothing against training the mind. But, in soccer, training all other part in the body require a club environment. How can going to a college truly improve the Panamanian keeper? Any college has no athletic ambition. Any college has no primary competitiveness. Amateur athletics, meaning non paid athletics has a limit to the athletic challenge it can provide. Alexi Lalas should had said where is a contract to Bailey from an ambitious, fiscally potent female club. I will end providing videos from Panama versus Mexico that may regale entertain or convince anyone to Panamanian Womens quality, give these women clubs. 1st half highlights https://photos.app.goo.gl/sXaWurr7mUbrSfC27 Kenia Kristel Rangel Villarreal to Karla Paola Riley Goal https://photos.app.goo.gl/LxKpUchTQUBJxw5f8 Natalia Mills to Marta Alejandra Cox Villarreal to Aldrith Quintero https://photos.app.goo.gl/cumbZ9z28DQsdySw5 Katherine Lineth Castillo Macias to Natalia Mills to Lineth Cedeno goal https://photos.app.goo.gl/JwLuyrbEQpaKhN4z5

    #PSG problem is a little imbalance. But it is not in the offensive set that #Tuchel has created. I think #PSG should had played #Neymar behind a front three last season from Emri but he wanted to be too similar to #FCB . The 4213 is Bernat/Kimpembe/Thiago Silva/Meunier Rabiot/Verratti Neymar Di Maria/Cavani/Mbappe The 13 Neymar//Di Maria/Cavani/Mbappe is fine. They make chances, possess, adjust. But, the 42 is not good enough against the better teams. Against smaller teams Bernat is acceptable but against bigger teams Bernat is used. I suggest a 3313 for PSG against the best opposition. Kimpemba/Thiago Silva/Marquinhos Verratti/Rabiot/Meunier Neymar Di Maria/Cavani/Mbappe Playing only one quality wide back never work, ask Real Madrid when Marcelo does not play side Carvajal or in the Selecao when Marcelo do not play side Dani Alves. The balance matter. if only one side can fly up, the other side become a crutch. Thus, MArquinhos, who was the best central defender for PSG last season, need to play next to the two other top central defender PSG have and then push Meunier into the wide defensive midfield role. He can easily sit into a wide back role if the shape change to a back four. This allows a greater central defense behind Neymar , cause RabiotVerratti leave too much space and force neymar to drop deep. Meunier can help get the ball to Neymar quicker and have quicker space to overlap or support Mbappe. PSG defensively need four lines but are to narrow in the defensive midfield. #Brasil have a problem. The entire Selecao squad is talented. But Tite is caught between supporting players who reflect a stronger UEFA grooming side supporting players who have a true or pure Brasilian nature, while trying to build the best team about Neymar. Neymar unlike many from his compatriots became a senior player in Brasil and this reality is what makes him complicated to place in the side. From the recent call up to the Selecao, who are they players born and raised in Brasil to maturity. Neymar/Renato Augusto/Paulinho. Now who are the players that have a pure<jogo bonito> or true<passion from the prai> Brasilian nature. Marcelo/Dani Alves/Douglas Costa/Willian/Casemiro/Viniciusjr all from them have a passion side jogo bonito style that play well next to Neymar. But, Coutinho/Firminho/Moura/Arthur/Alec Sandro/Fernandhino all seem restrained as players. You never sense from them the freedom that come from the pure or true Brasilian or reared in Brasil players in the selecao. The Selecao can play Neymar center forward in a 433 but he must be surrounded by players who reflect his way. I can see Marcelo/Thiago silva/Marquinhos/Dani Alves//Renato Augusto/Casemiro/Paulinho//Vinicusjr/Neymar/Douglas Costa in the 2019 Copa America. Firminho/G Jesus do not have the goals or playing style to be in front Neymar as number ten so play Neymar as a 9. But, if Neymar is a number 9, he requires that back midfield three who are full from running and two at his side who are not looking to pass first but cut through first. Those three up top are the most dangerous one on one players Brasil have. Willian is the first option off the bench in the forward or midfield line. If Neymar must play the ten role then I suggest 4213 Marcelo/Thiago Silva/MArquinhos/Dani alves//Casemiro/Paulinho//Neymar//Willian/Vinicius jr/Douglas Costa . Willian/Vinicius/D Costa all do one thing better than G jesus/Firminho/coutinho/arthur they frighten defenders in one on one situations. At liverpool, Firminho does not frighten defenders, salah or mane do and firminho works hard to connect or make runs in for space. At mcfc , G jesus does not frighten defenders, that is sane or sterling, he works hard into spaces like firminho. At FC Barcelona, when messi does not play how effective is Coutinho. Not much at all. Dani Alves said coutinho is equivalent to neymar but neymar took over some games when messi played while coutinho is never more than an attache. Lucas Moura does have speed but like theo walcott or raheem sterling or danny welbeck or marcus rashford, or gervinho or usain bolt:) his strength is running absent the ball, not running having the ball or scoring having the ball. Tite went against the 433 he used in the world cup qualifiers in Conmebol in his Russian World Cup strategy. I hope he can stay true when he find the balance again. EDIT 11-20-2018 I watched Cameroon vs Brazil and Choupo-Moting convinced me,taking in the cameroon vs morocco match aside, that PSG as well Cameroon have another system. First Cameroon, Seedorf is not interested in bringing players from outside UEFA, like Tite does for the Selecao. But, Aboubakar scored the winning goal that led to Cameroon's Cup of Nations success. Choupo-Moting need to play aside Aboubakar as both are willing to track back and work. The system cameroon need is a 442. Seedorf/Kluivert need to use Choupo-moting/Aboubakar is the front duo. For PSG, it is the same. I saw Cavani playing for uruguay against brasil. Tuschel like Seedorf/Kluivert has it wrong. CAvani/Choupo-Moting up top is the front dup that is willing to work deep in midfield that can support a central midfield duo of Neymar/Verratti while a midfield wing paid of Di Maria/Mbappe thus the PSG squad in a 442 can be Cavani/Choupo-Moting Di Maria/Verratti/Neymar/Mbappe Bernat/Thiago Silva/MArquinhos/Meunier though for the 343 idea, I think Cavani/Neymar/Choupo-Moting Di Maria/Verrati/Rabiot/Mbappe Kimpemba/Thiago SIlva/MArquinhos Some people say Neymar/Cavani/Mbappe can not play together but I think the problem is in assessing who they are. Neymar is in truth a creative midfielder who likes to initiate off his dribble rather than pass first, what that mean is neymar can play as a wide player in an attacking front trio. He can play in a high central role. But his best position is in the midfield. The problem is, he demands the ball more. Tite achieved that by supporting the front three in brasil with renato augusto/casmeiro/paulinho. But PSG dont have any midfield like either from renato augusto/casemiro/paulinho . But PSG have two true number 9s. Not the barca-esque false 9s. Cavani/Choupo-Moting are willing to work in the midfield.Put them together up top, they offer strong outlets, not just fast outlets like Mbappe or Di Maria but strong outlets who can bring the midfield into the game. All three can play but can Tuschel who idolizes the guardiola/barca way and what that truly means is coaches the players into his system, not bend his system to reflect the players. Tuschel has the squad to win it all but he must imagine these players as artists, not statistical truths or measurement complexes. EDIT 11-28-2018 Tuchel played in a must win against Liverpool Buffon Kehrer/Thiago Silva/Kimpembe/Bernat verratti/marquinhos mbappe/neymar/dimaria cavani Again Tuschel proves to me why he should had never been coach to PSG. PSG unlike any other team in UEFA wants to win the UEFA CL, it isn't just money, it is why they have spent the most, why they demand the most. I blame the owners for being convinced a coach who has not won anything in his prior club, his first major club, can be a winner as PSG desire. I watch Tuschel smile on the bench and have this guardiola style arrangements and modulations. I don't like it. Kehrer is the handball man, the man who always gives away a penalty from a handball, playing him in this match. that is irresponsible coaching for me. PSG is not a coach's play thing. Kehrer to me warranted the bench in his past starts. Bernat is a good player but absent meunier it is lopsided, like dani alves minus marcelo in selecao or marcelo minus carvajal in real madrid. I say 334 Marquinhos/Thiago Silva/Kimpemba//kehrer/verratti/bernat//neymar//mbappe/cavani/di maria Link to proving reference or citation https://twitter.com/PSG_inside/status/1067854447357890567

    After watching Manchester United FC play a number of matches this season it is clear Mourinho has to play three in the back and four in defensive midfield. MUFC squad has strengths , it also have weaknesses. Strengths MUFC have five players in one line naturally , defensive midfield: Pogba, Fellaini, Matic, Fred, Herrera. MUFC have a true number nine in Lukaku as well as experienced hard working wide players in Shaw, Young, Valencia. WEaknesses If you take out rashford, martial , lindegard MUFC is slow, no player has a dangerous speed. MUFC do not have great central defenders. Between Bailley, Smalling, Jones, Lindelof, McTomiinay none except bailley seem to have the ability to be a dominant centerback, but Bailley plays very risky or is unable to lead the line through that playing style. Structure A 3412 system is what is best for MUFC. Ideally I want Young/Bailley/Valencia <Shaw/Darmian for Young/Valencia OR Smalling/Jones/Lindelof/MCTominay for Bailley> Fred/Matic/Fellaini/Herrera Pogba <Mata> Attacking duo (Lukaku/Lindegard<sanchez for lindegard> OR Martial/Rashford) Martial or Rashford have very good speed but neither play well as foils. Lindegard play well as a foil but having the only speed makes utilizing a 433 system wasteful as the team is too slow to collectively press or recover. Utilizing the system above, the defensive midfield four can protect or cover the back three, while the back three wide players are comfortable going between wide or central roles while not demanding to run up and down the flanksforcing the physical strength fromt he defensive midfield four to tank the ball up. Pogba is free as the sole offensive midfielder to make up the game and not track back. MUFC do not have many goals in them as a squad, nor collective speed to press or recover, but they have physical strength and a potential to defend greatly if they play a system that uses a natural width in the defensive midfield area. in amendment 10-2-2018 MUFC can play a 442. substitute in bracket Shaw<young>/Smalling<jones>/Bailley<Lindelof>/Valencia<darmian> Fred/Matic/Fellaini/Herrera <sanchez/lindegard/mata> Pogba/Lukaku <Martial/Rashford replace the pair> In this system, you have an honest defensive midfield four above a back four. which allows the wide backs to run up freely and not worry about defensive cover as the defensive four are all willing to cover. Pogba/Lukaku do not have speed but they have strength/height and in a 442 they can both invite the defensive midfield four higher up the pitch in a slow buildup. RAshford/MArtial do not have strength but can hit the counter well and with the defensive midfield four looking to give them the ball as quickly as possible it aids their speedy game. in amendment 10-20-2018 It seem Mourinho has accepted two triangles. Lukaku//Martial/Rashford then Mata//Pogba/MAtic the team is injury riddled but those two triangle seem to have found an attacking balance. Martial/Rashford have the wide pace needed but Mata in the ten role is essentially encircled to options all about him which helps him make the game. in amendment 10-23-2018 against Juventus many pundit said MUFC were outclassed in the first half but I think the issue was the spacing. If MUFC is not going to pass/move/press using a faster pace individually or collectively, they need to be more patient or condensed in the defense , which they were not in the first half. In the second half MUFC players moved/passe using more pace and they pressured Juventus, who were fatigued. I have no problem to Mou using the 4213 but the little triangle matic/pogba//mata forces the two wide player in the big triangle , Martial/Rashford//Lukaku, martial or rashford to improve their game. I dont have a problem to them cutting in on their more deadly foot but their ability to cross using their poorer foot must improve, plain or simple. The problem both have is in the system, defenders know they want to cut in and shoot or cross using one foot, they must gain that ability to cross better using their less trained foot

    Marca's worst 11 2018 is an example to poor choices in career. Kelechi Promise Iheanacho is a started for Nigeria who came through the MCFC system and has remained in England where his game style, as a speedy player is not settled in a team. The EPL has money but most EPL teams are not good for a young player who needs start time or the correct team to fit their style. Iheanacho need to find a team in italy or germany or france that fits his game. He need a very good defensive team where he can counterattack, that is the system where he fit as an attacker best. Luciano Vietto like nearly all in this list, left a team he was in synch too foolishly and has not settled into other teams, usually set up otherwise. He need to find a team like the Villareal he left hastily for atleti. Alexis Sanchez side MEsut Ozil made the same mistake Vietto did. They left one from the top duo in Spain to Arsenal. Real Madrid is full of high priced talent as well as FC Barcelona. Both players left those squads to squads that were and are less talented in Arsenal. And under Wenger, the frugal Arsenal did not have a complete squad full from proven quality since the Thierry Henry era ended. Wesley Sneijder has a storied , trophy filled career who spent the last few season hoping around clubs: Nice/AC Milan/Al-Gharafa on an extended farewell tour. To say he is part of the worst eleven is to speak falsely to where his career is. Winning a 2nd place or 3rd place World Cup trophy for Holland. A Club World Cup while the only treble in Italian soccer history means you are above a worst anything, after such achievement in teams. This is merely a player like many who has two phase career. The first phase is the yearning: Ajax/Real MAdrid/Inter Milan/Galata Palace , the second is champagne: OGC Nice , AC Milan, Al -gharafa . From Nice to Al Gharafa is good money, nice traveling. Teams that are meant for daring newbies or experienced travelers. When you reach the Journeyman status, you are simply playing, you can not be the worst or the best. Tiémoué Bakayoko is another player who left success for a monied gamble and the career , though not the pocketbook, paid for it. Chelsea under Conte is not Monaco under Jardim. One Monaco uses a mostly less traveled side. PEople seem to not comprehend, the key factor separating a long traveled player from a less traveled is the endurance. The soccer player who played for fifteen years as a professional has gone through injuries, played through pain numerous times; said player does not have the physical nonchalance like the less traveled player. It is not about age, but usage. A car that traveled 10,000 miles even being regularly checked or repaired from experts is not like one off the assembly line. The Monaco that BAkayoko left was full from very hungry recently former youth players. Chelsea is not that team. Chelsea is a mature team , they lack the recklessness in Monaco, that helps a player like Bakayoko. Ganso is one of those brasilian players who should had never left brasil. HE went from Santos to Sao Paulo and left Sao Paulo to the wrong place. HE was twenty six when he left Sao Paulo.At that age you can not leave to a la liga side like SEvilla. You need to go to a trophy lifting club no matter the country first or foremost. And I comprehend how this happened. In Conmebol, La Liga is very popular, Iberia tend to be a gateway into UEFA from CONMEBOL. But, I think a move to CHina. A move to Russia while not as preferable would probably had landed him on a team where he can win things and continue his career stride. The truth is, the Santos team that won the Copa Libertadores should had all been in Santos now including Neymar. But, Santos is a small team fiscally and can't keep great teams together. Howedes problem is like Ganso. A guy that should had never left his home country and when he did leave, he went to the wrong place. I know Schalke. It is an uninspiring team. Schalke never wins anything. Never seem like winning anything and is a satrap like all other clubs in germany including Dortmund or my Gladbach to Bayern. Juventus is a big team. Juventus has the role Bayern has in Germany in Italy. Howedes had a better idea than Ganso but chose the wrong league still. Italy, especially Juventus, is a serious club defensively. Very few top teams in UEFA,top defined as trophy contending, are serious about defending, in all defensive aspect. As a Germany, Turkey or Russia was the better choice, which he chose to do now going to Locomotive Moscow. But he should had went to Zenit or CSKA Moscow who are the highest placed teams on average int he past seven season in RUssia. Bonucci is the second non career path entry here. Bonucci left Juventus in my opinion for money. HE functionally took a big year salary from Milan to eventually go back to Juventus afterward. AC Milan have been rebuilding since Zlatan side Thiago Silva left. BOnucci saw an organization not run well that makes poor fiscal choices and decided to take a gamble and it worked. he got a nice bit of cash and got to go back to Juventus to lift things. Lindelof is another poor choice in labor move. Jose Mourinho is the finest coach for defensive quality players. But MUFC since Ferguson left designed the roster to fit a coach like Sarri/Guardiola/Klopp not Allegri/Mourinho/Simeone sequentially, while Mourinho coaches MUFC, the squad does not fit Mourinho's style. Now to be fair, the injury to Zlatan derailed Mourinho's original plan, which fit a team that does not defend from the backline well. But, as it is, Lindelof, from BEnfica, knows how to work at defense and switch to attack. But the team is not on the same page thus, as a player soon to settle into his prime game, he need to be in a team settled in style or risk being on a big team not settled for long. Karius is a media tragedy. KArius was the goal keeper that was part to Liverpool making it to the UEFACL final 2017-2018 but paid the labor price by having a globally publicized bad game. ALlison is a very good keeper, but Karius had a game like every keeper has in one year that is woeful. The problem is that it was in a cup final, not a match that was less publicized or not detrimental to the trophy cause. But, all but one < Karius> from the player mentioned show only one bond, a poor choice athletically, systemically. Some moved for money, most moved cause money, but the system they went to from one team to the other either didn't fit them or they didn't fit it and the result showed. The key media point is seven from eleven are from the EPL. Now MArca is from Spain, home to la liga but the EPL is the gravesite or derailing to many careers. and the reason is usually money. Bafetimbi Gomis, Andre Ayew, DZeko, MEmphis Depay, MArio Balotelli <twice> , payet, thauvin, Schweinsteiger, side many other in the English PRemier League made a career mistake for the pay. The EPL more than any other globally advertised league in UEFA is bad for careers athletically. I repeat, financially an EPL club is the best choice on average but athletically an epl club is the worst choice on average.
