Postings Tomorrow

Tomorow, (Thursday) I will post two pieces, one a review on the first round of matches and a second more in depth piece on the "cheating culture" which is pervasive in Football.

This is something that we football fans may complain about but understand and which people from non-footballing countries, i.e. the USA find so hard to accept.

Check back for those

  1. Wiggi,

    Thanks for the detailed response regarding players' names. I did not realize that you were such a scholar on the subject.

    Next question from the unwashed masses:
    In the major North American team sports, there tends to be established strategies that most coaches stick to, only tweaking them in one direction or another.

    However, every once in a while, some maverick comes along and decides that it's time for "something completely different". For example, the "run and gun" offence.

    So my questions in terms of football and the World Cup are:

    1) Among the major football clubs, are there any coaches knows for straying far from the conventional wisdom and trying to get an edge by doing something nobody else is doing.

    2) Among the teams currently in the World Cup, are there any such maverick coaches who are willing to go out on a limb when it comes to strategy ?
