We all love football. Obvious and unquestionable reality. But when we look like football evolves, sometimes we fail to see that what many see as an evolution, it remains an involution. It is another perspective, another point of view.
These other views, different, almost always the most discussed, the most widely spoken, most discussed, most ridiculed, most beloved, or more shares. These other views generate debate. Following the results we’re seeing that in this Champions League and in these group stages, is at least start thinking a bit and let fly as well, why not a little imagination. In this case, rather than imagination is a return to the past, I lived and what you consider a maximum excellence. An excellence that with the current and recurrent globalization has been more a problem than a solution.
In this triad, we try to move this post: Is it more difficult the current editions of Champions that twenty years ago? Why you? Why not?
People who opna that is more difficult now based on global elelmentos in the impressions that have been given the last 5 or 10 years, maybe. Hardly remember the Red Star or Sampdoria reached the final. Times change. Remember as is currently the Champions League. The big leagues in Europe say (BBVA, Premier, Bundesliga, Calcio) have between 3 and 4 representatives from the same country. In a second step are the Eredivisie, Portugal and Russia. And then there’s the rest where they have to play to delineate several previous Champions who will and who will not. Some argue this theory, because, (always theoretically) we see the largest in Europe. We see the billionaire sheikhs of the Premier, the sublime Spanish, the Italians always difficult … this leads to a current situation. Where there are groups in the Champions League where they establish groups fed-complicated and beautiful to see, within tarnish others. The most obvious example is that of Group A, where they met to 3 great teams, which none of them were champions of their respective leagues last year.
On the other hand, we see groups like the Manchester United or FC Barcelona where he played on two teams lucky enough weaker than the two that seem to go to class. This is his theory. An expanded playoffs, where the final round are always the same, except for a remarkable surprise. We should note that this system enhances the Champions League (in theory), but has weakened other competitions like the Champions League (or UEFA Cup). And the magic is gone Cup Winners’ Cup, where they were all champions (or failing finalists) National Cup. Now they are all integrated in lal Europa League, making it a competition of a second level.
Before, there was going well. The champions league of the true integrated 16 most deserved to be champions, despite a previous pass. The UEFA Cup was much more level, and the Cup Winners Cup. And with this result to reunify all and we all have where we have parties like that of Valencia at the Genk or that of Real Madrid with that of Zagreb, were parties of qualifying. Predictable, very predictable.
On the other side are those who think that the Champions League should honor his name and only invite the participation of all the teams that have won their league. “A just reward”, according to many. Where the champions league with the worst ratio have to play each other, being in the Champions League, the pride that must be for them and above all played a large part of its economic season. Those who think that the current Champions is more flawed than it was 15 or 20 years, always speak from a nostalgic point of view. Where posbilidad to win the Champions League was just doing an extraordinary season in the league.
He thinks (and rightly) to be crowned champions before, was worth it for these things. Today (speaking big leagues), no matter if you get a league or stay 2 ° or 3 °. Same thing, go to the same competition and maybe even a worse ratio than a 2 ° or 3 °. It assesses the domestic league, does devalue the UEFA Cup and Cup Winners’ Cup disappears. Anyone who thinks that she is right. It certainly has more merit then win, to win it now. “The group stage is a pantomime” or phrases of the sort that resonate in the ears of more than one. It’s simple.
After an intense summer season looming resumption of the first and second division of Argentine football, but before this happens we are two games to close the preseason and will have to speak in South America and the world: River – Boca, Boca – River, the usual two super classics that are always played in the summer break, but this year will have something special: Boca comes from being open tournament champion 2011 with a solid performance, however River, is trying to climb back to the top flight known after hard fall in the middle of last year when he lost the promotion against Belgrano de Córdoba and decided the dark future of River would play in the National B (second division) for the first time in its history. The first of these shocks will be played on Wednesday January 25 in the province of Chaco (Argentina) and there are some controversies in the vicinity of Boca Juniors, the team that joined Xeneize Uruguayan striker Santiago Silva after a brief stint at Fiorentina , will be without him for the tournament in the First Division as the “tank” played in 2 teams in the same season (Velez and Fiorentina) and can not do it for Boca because the regulation states that a player can not play in three different teams in the same season and it became a special permit for the player to play only games of the Copa Libertadores of America. The problem is that the team led by Julio Cesar Falcioni believed in using Santiago Silva in these two games against their biggest rival for this impediment the coach of defending champion declared “Let’s go to Chaco (to play with River) with the kids “, this led to talk among sports journalists in the region.
The second match between Boca Juniors River Plate will be the January 29, but this time they played in the Province of Mendoza (Argentina), this meeting is “revenge” of the previous game. Can River to surprise and beat the defending champion? Beyond football, these two games will be very attentive to the stands for the great reception that they will do both sets of fans to their teams, will certainly be a party.
Turning more to the preparation of stocks for the Clausura 2012, Boca was reinforced very well and seems to be the leading candidate to win the tournament again, beyond the appointed James Smith, the club could sign Ribera Paul Ledesma, the wheel that Italian football is more precisely of Catania, reinforces the midfield area and complete a great squad (Riquleme main figure) which is supposed to fight three tournaments: The American Libertadores Cup, the tournament and Closing Argentina cup (this cup was incorporated this year, is similar to the King’s Cup) in that order of priority.
Very different is the intention River, being in second going to try to ascend to the first division and also the top seed, with large reinforcements, David Trezeguet, the Argentine-French attack is to make the millionaire club even stronger, and made its debut in the summer becoming a goal in the friendly tournament that the club won. He also made his presentation Leonardo Ponzio, recently took a step River but returned to help make the climb, the recent attempt Zaragoza player earn a spot on the team but will not have it easy.
Returning to the First Division there are several candidates: Velez Sarfierld have great seasons lately and it seems that this is not going to be an exception, the team led Gareca try to be at the top, brought two great players to supplant the Maxi Moralez low (Atalanta) and Santiago Silva (Fiorentina) held at the last minute in July 2011, six months after their replacements arrived, Federico Insua returning from football and Turkish striker Mauro Pence great seasons at Arsenal de Sarandi.
Another candidate is undoubtedly Estudiantes club that knew how to play the Club World Cup final against Barcelona in 2009, will attempt to return to the top after a very bad half-season remaining in the lowest places. It will be a special semester for “Pinchas”, this is the last tournament he played his greatest idol: Juan Sebastian Veron, the player who was able to wear the shirt of Manchester United , Chelsea, Inter and others decided to end his career and already there is talk that will occupy a place in the Argentina. The La Plata club can also count for 6 months with the keeper Mariano Andujar (ex Catania).
If candidates can not leave out talking to teams of Avellaneda Racing Club and Independiente both attempt once more to reach the top, Racing have a great squad and decided not strengthened, but renewed the coaching staff after the departure of Simeone to Atletico Madrid came to supplant Alfio Basile. Independent comes from bad seasons and if reinforced, and striker Ernesto Farias brought each time you open the transfer market his name appears in several clubs, from the Cruzeiro of Brazil will try to contribute with several goals in the next tournament.
Finally talk about San Lorenzo, their reality is not the best and needs to recover as soon as this promotion positions, the “Ghost River” and fear is growing down, so try adding a good cushion of points and for that hired the Uruguayan forward Carlos Bueno that comes from doing more than 20 goals in Mexican football.
This is the reality of Argentine football, continue to update over time.
With what happened yesterday in the Champions League in Spain can boast. Yes, because there is nothing better to us to presume Spanish of success when we are at the top. But the occasion merits. Having regard to the semifinals of the two European tournaments, shows that of the 8 finalists, five are Spanish. Only Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Sporting Club of Portugal have been able to survive. This means several things: first, that at least 50% of the final of the Europa League will be Spanish, with serious potential that is 100%, and second, if all goes well in the Champions League, could be a final between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.
The Spanish is going much curiosity and what is more morbid game in the world that a so-called “derby” of the world? See again a duel Messi vs. Christian, face to face, in a stadium as spectacular as the Allianz Arena. It’s a pleasure just at the thought.
But every silver lining has a dark side to him hidden. And in Spain we have very present. In our league there are quality clubs that does not conform to the national championships. We have the two best teams of the moment and with a series of “secondary actors” who could stand up to many (for example, the Athletic Club). However, Spanish football has one major flaw that many times we have remarked, it is their nefarious organization. In our league will be the three best players in the world. You can even nine of the eleven occupants of the UEFA Best XI play in the Spanish fields. But having a format as we drink or a league schedules and calentario so malleable, it can be said that a few countries ahead of us in that regard.
Moreover, now is not time to complain. Football is giving us years of success. Spanish clubs and selection are writing your name in capital letters and gold plated. Have to enjoy football. We are able to spoil something as nice as a Madrid-Barcelona match talking about something as superficial and imperfect in itself as arbitration. The colleges are human beings. If they saw it all and everything will blow their whistles, and so far would be robots that has not been invented, or will be invented. I only know that Europe is being given to our game. Messi, Cristiano, Di Maria, Xavi Hernandez, Llorente, Soldier, Javi Martinez, Falcao … European clubs, drink what you want me to win?
When shopping for football kits you will want to take your specific needs into account. Do you need certain sizes, colours, or a specific brand? If so, some care will need to be taken in deciding where to shop. Online shopping is advisable, as the selection that is available online is quite large. Those who are responsible for purchasing for a team will also need to consider shopping with a store that offers kits in quantity.
Price may also be a consideration. Rest assured that there are plenty of bargains to be found online, and these do include brand names such as Nike, Adidas, and more. There is no reason to pay full retail price when discount retailers are offering the exact same products for less. Just a small amount of research will direct you to an online store that offers high quality kits at a lower price.
There is never any reason to settle for football kits that are not exactly what you want. Correct sizes, specific colours, top brands, and low price can all be yours. Keep the elements that are important to you in mind while shopping, as all of your needs must be met. Whether you are purchasing kits for the first time, or replacing worn out items, you will find the selection that is available online is hard to beat.
The idea combines today’s business crisis and passion for the sport. It is likely that sell cheap football boots could be a major success in a country plagued by deep economic depression, but whose inhabitants would not default on payment for the stadium but had to go hungry.
Football passion of the crowds
Just exaggerate the importance of balónpie in Spain. I do not think that many other countries in the world where it appears that a football match is an event of interest, or that politicians do not dare to make teams break the brink of ruin by the bad image that would have been one who forced to close this or that club.
Cheap football boots
The investment required for this sport is not high, but whether to play in a grassy field is essential to have adequate boots, with their tacos. This accessory is great demand in Spain, both for adults who practice this sport to children who are exposed early to the virus football, and want to become the new Messi, Zidane or Maradona (according to the times). For a company selling football boots, children are a particularly interesting market because they need to change in size often.
But family budgets are shrinking by the current economic situation. In fact, if we inquire into Google, we find that “cheap football boots” is a fairly common search.
Possible business ideas
You can imagine several interesting concepts to take advantage of this need. The more potential, but also more difficult to implement is to create a new boot and economic development. The difficult task is to fight the image of brand name products backed by famous athletes and against economic and other models are sold in specialty stores such Decathlon.
Another idea is to set up an online store specializing in the niche. A few weeks ago we saw a former FC Barcelona, Xavi Escaich, has mounted a store that sells only balls of all kinds of sports. Something similar can be done with football boots, but focusing on low prices.
This will explain that to make a routine ‘personalized’ first need a medical report certifying the absence of risk to the sport and explain the possible conditions that must be taken into account when planning the exercise.
The room technician Maintenance is also responsible for explaining the basics of acting in the room. For example, we show that a work session begins with warming in some of the cardio-exercise bike, treadmill or rowing-specific work is weight divided by muscle groups and ends with a phase flexibility, cool-down.
also will ask a series of useful recommendations, such as carrying a bottle of water and a towel to dry the sweat and lie on the mats.
As for the phase corresponding to the core work of weights, include two main aspects. First, the coach is who should be responsible for choosing the type of exercises, the weight with which you work, the number of sets and repetitions, recovery times and alternating exercises.
Practice with free weights or with machines without considering the aforementioned factors entails a significant risk of injury.
Secondly, the correct execution of the gesture is very important both from the standpoint of its effectiveness as the risk of injury. The room technician supervises the work of each. However, if you are not sure to be working well or if you notice some discomfort in the execution, do not hesitate to seek advice and request that we correct.
The medical review sports
In a sports medical examination assesses the physical ability of a person for sports.
First, the doctor takes the personal data such as height, weight, blood pressure and pulse. Next, make a report anthropometric and diagnoses used. With lipómetro measures the amount of body fat and, from there, we deduce the percentages of fat, bone, muscle and residual weight of the body.
This serves to calculate the ideal weight and to define the type of body structure of the person (somatotipograma).
Another point is the morphologic and functional, including an exploration of the hearing, the cardiorespiratory system (auscultation and electrocardiogram) and musculoskeletal (plantar support, spine, etc..).
Finally, in some medical centers performed the exercise test on a stationary bike or treadmill, used to determine maximum heart rate, recovery time, anaerobic threshold and in the case of high performance athletes, oxygen consumption maximum, maximum oxygen consumption per kilo body, etc..
Spain, with a header gold Carles Puyol will play the first World Cup final in its history, after winning, 1-0, to Germany in the semifinals of the tournament, contested at the Moses Mabhida stadium in Durban (South Africa) the best game of Vicente del Bosque in the tournament.
The national team will play well on Sunday, from 20.30, to Holland to secure their first title in World Cup history over a century and further enlarge the feat that will be forgotten and the fourth edition of 195O in Brazil.
The best Spain appeared at the right time. The question of Fernando Torres, the hero of the final in Vienna, the Forest met the inclusion in the starting of Pedrito, the real revelation of course football 2010-11 in the Spanish league and one of the great innovations in the list World Cup final.
The bet, most innovative than other more natural as the entry of Cesc Fabregas, still limping, or the most natural of Fernando Llorente at the tip of the attack, went right to Del Bosque, as the canary was an SUV that moved for all river and went crazy behind Germany.
A pass inside the Barca player to Tenerife top scorer Villa, at 6 minutes, came close to putting forward to Spain, one of the obsessions of the ‘red’ for not playing in tow of the ‘tank’ Teuton and avoid rapid counterattacks led by player of Turkish origin Ozil or Schweinsteiger.

The debt bubble continues to increase its size football to place limits compromise the economic stability of the whole country, as is clear from the data released by the government itself, which puts the total debt with the tax office at 752 million euros.
Transfers without limit figures, stars come and go while the money seems to fall by the wayside. It reflects the situation that the report on the debts of Spanish football that has made public the government itself. According to the Tax Office, an institution whose functions include the collection of taxes, whichever professional soccer clubs has now risen to 752 million euros as of January 1, 2012.
The figures were made public in the Committee on Education and Sport of Congress in response to the question that had been made Deputy United Left (IU) Caridad Garcia, who had raised a formal consultation on the Government asking “how much is the aggregate debt of professional football clubs, run by the Inland Revenue, to date January 1, 2012. ” The answer is clear: professional football clubs in Spain are late in paying their taxes and the amount of debt increases more and more.
The report debt be divided into three categories selected by the Government itself to break down all the money not paid by the clubs. The first category corresponds to the first division, competition in which the figure stands at 489,930,880 euros. An amount that is unlikely to be clinched in the short term due to poor economic situation in which there are several clubs that have been forced to declare bankruptcy status.
As officially recognized by the Government the existence of the debt of football clubs, many of them as sporting society (SAD) – is recognized that the state loses astronomical sums that rightfully belong on the basis of criteria established in the Spanish tax system. Permissiveness with football in the collection of taxes, unlike with ordinary people, has brought in a situation that becomes untenable now recognized by government institutions themselves.
The second, more sound
In the silver category of Spanish football there is also a high amount of debt to the Inland Revenue, although this is much lower than that found in the top flight. Secondhand clubs owe a total of 184 million euros, while the third category in the breakdown of government, named ‘No Predictor’, should be more than 78 million euros.
According to the IU group, which originated the initiative to know this information, “in just under four years the debt of these entities with the Treasury has risen by almost 150 million” figure is taken from another question registered with the same concept in 2008. The status of clubs in Spain has been markedly worse and some have opted for the disappearance, so no wonder that this figure rise even more.
The figure is officially desonoce individualized for each club as this is a reserved data, although according to UI ensures these figures are not complete when only those corresponding to the tax, not to mention other debts that could be maintained with other institutions such as the Social Security.
Following the disclosure of this information, the Government itself has not been oblivious to this fact and has already announced, through the Secretary of State for Sport, Michael Cardinal, his intention of reaching an agreement with the Football League (LFP) to bring solution to this situation. Cardinal said in the program’s window Cadena Ser that action will be taken “not to happen again in the future.” Are unknown conditions that could lead to a solution of these dangerous figures with playing the world of Spanish football, but what IU has asked after seeing your question answered in Congress than the citizens who have to contribute to directly or indirectly their taxes to end the more than obvious problem.
