Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup
Coufal was asked a couple of weeks ago about the Thursday / Sunday game regime and said FOOTBALLERS (ie him) LOVE PLAYING EVERY 3 DAYS

Have always thought its better to have players playing twice a week to get into a rhythm rather be left to their own devices and get distracted by NONSENSE.
Players are only 'tired' when they are told they should be and are looking for an excuse.

Speaking of off field NONSENSE given Paul Merson has admitted he was drugged up when winning things with Arsenal when are those performances going to be declared nul and void and the trophies cancelled?

Excellent… so these finely chooned modern day are keeping up with the old sloggers of old all with the help of lovely pitches… great training facilities… proper medical procedures… decent diet…great transport… superb hotels… and NOT smoking 30 a day whilst WEARING shin pads…. Good for them

Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup
Even at the lower level, the games played are a lot.

A Championship side has 46 league games, plus at least one league and one FA cup game. Some players, may even play a few internationals as well.

Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup
Better, more successful teams, played more games (like the Liverpool side you mention) back in the day.

Now even averagely successful teams, have 6 European games minimum. 8 if they finish top 3 in the Champions/Europa League group stages.

Here's list of most games in a season in "modern" times. Excludes internationals. All 60+ games. (2019 list)

Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup
Westside...

Some our players were playing 60+ ... and that did not include those that were internationals... Brooking and co...

http://www.westhamstats.info/westham.php?west=4&ham=1981&united=2nd_Division_1980-81

Some of those Liverpool lads from the late 70 early 80's were 70+ games a season... think one season they used no more than 16 players... all smoking 30 fags a day without any shin pads.... sorry but playing 30-40 games a season and being a bit knackered nowadays... behave... bunch of pampered titty sucking wokey wankers

Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup
the ball is in play for roughly an hour in every football match. So there's half an hour break uring the game, and a 15 minute sit down at half time.

There's no escaping the fact that modern football is bent.

*TENNIS players run more in an hour then footballers do in 90 minutes*

They also sit down and have a break after every 3 minutes or so

Stewie

Do tennis players regularly kick each other in the legs, head, etc?

I agree that modern football is gay, but lets make no mistake, tennis is for the fat lads, weeds and gayers who can't get in the football or rugby team.

Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup
Back in the day, there were cup replays, but European club games, were straight two legged knockouts, no leagues. World Cup and Euro qualifiers were often only 4 teams, sometimes 5, Now 5 and 6 team groups. The finals themselves had less games, with 16 team world cups and 8 team Euros.

TENNIS players run more in an hour then footballers do in 90 minutes

and at regular tour events play 5 days consecutively

Modern football = BENT

"GET ON WITH IT"

Yep, I'm with you Sold0.

They're paid very handsomely to play a game of football. Most teams have squads pushing 23 players, plus most will have youth teams to fall back on.

If they're tired, then play one of the other squad players.

Imagine going into any other job and saying you can't do it today because you're tired?

Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup
Top footballers are being forced to play too many matches nowadays.





Behave... played far far more back in the day... was no resting players for league cup games... cup replays left right and centre... and if you was good enough you played in Europe... and for your country... Home internationals anyone... some players were playing nigh on 70 games a season... on shit pitches... with shit travel... and staying in shit hotels.... all without shin pads and smoking 30 a day... GET ON WITH IT

Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup
Top footballers are being forced to play too many matches nowadays. Rice, Soucek and Coufal must be fucking knackered. They've had maybe two weeks off in the past year, maybe two.

I can't think of another sport where the games are relentless. Burnout will begin to factor soon, as well as injuries.

It's all about money, of course, but something has to give.

Took my Grandson, who will be 12 on Saturday to Wembley tonight and he thought the best bit of the evening was when a paper dart thrown from the stand reached the playing area.

I couldn't disagree
