26.09.2016   Fußball ist mehr als Statistik

Detaillierte Statistiken vermitteln den Eindruck des "gläsernen" Spielers. Scheinbar alles wird gemessen, nichts bleibt unentdeckt.
Ist das wirklich so? Kann man Fußball wirklich "vermessen"? Blickt man auf essentielle, oft positionsspezifische Kerneigenschaften von sog. "echten Spielertypen", ergibt sich ein anderes Bild.
Spielwitz, Zug zum Tor, Abgeklärtheit, das Spiel lesen, Spielfreude....  » more

27.02.2015   Development on the road?

With the increasing number of national and international competitions, those players strike who play for multiple teams in various competitions, often weekly changing the team. Especially during the transition period from youth to professional football, many talents get stuck between the teams, which makes continuous training and development difficult.
Isaiah Brown (Chelsea) und Frederick Woodman (Newcastle) are current U19 England internationals. Forward Brown appeared for 5 teams in 7 competitions so far this season, goalkeeper Woodman due to a loan deal even for 6 teams in 10 competitions.
U19 England teammate Dele Alli, midfielder for MK Dons, proves the opposite. Currently in his second season as a first team regular, he signed for Tottenham for next season.
Which way is the better one? Many team changes and travel or regular training and continuous competition appearances?
