Andrea Belotti: the symbol of the modern centre forward

According to Fabio Capello, he has everything it takes to become even better than Gabriel Batistuta. According to the Torino president, the €100 million release clause is almost reductive based on the value of the player. According to many, Italy has found the centre forward of the future. He is Andrea Belotti, Serie A top goalscorer, tied with Edin Dzeko at 23 goals in 27 matches. An absolute protagonist of the season, he boasts 25 goals out of a total of 30 matches played with Torino, 28 in 37 matches if we also consider the National team, on which he has become a starter.

Analysis of euro 2016 teams: Ukraine

When you’re this close to the start of a major international tournament, most avenues have already been explored. We know the favourites: France; Spain and Germany. We know the nations that have it within them to win, but probably won’t: Belgium; Italy and England. We know the dark horses: Austria; Croatia and Poland. We even know the minnows: Albania; Hungary and Northern Ireland. But what about the middle ground? What about the teams with just a puncher’s chance of glory? What about Ukraine?

Impressive LA Galaxy win over Real Salt Lake

For the uninitiated, there is much that separates Major League Soccer from other notable leagues around the world. There is the single entity business structure, the draft system, the designated star player policies. But most of all, in these opening weeks, there is the sense that no team is considerably better than any other. At least, that was the case until this weekend when LA Galaxy faced the undefeated Real Salt Lake and pulled their pants down in front of everyone.

Video analysis: The key to read the game – David Luiz action read through video analysis

A counter-attack begins, the play is fast, by the time anyone realises what has happened, the ball is at the back of the net. In living rooms all over the world, all eyes were on David Luiz’s (apparently clumsy) movement. Coordination error? Technical error? Tactical error? With the help of Wyscout images and a more in depth Video Analysis, we can arrive at a different answer.

Analysis of New England revolution victory over New York Red Bulls 1-0

“It’s shameful for me,” said New York Red Bulls’ coach Jesse Marsch afterwards. “The game is supposed to have honour.”

It’s a nice thought and in an ideal world, we would all conduct ourselves with grace and nobility. But as Bill Shankly once said, “If you don’t know what to do with the ball, put it in the net and we’ll discuss the options later.” And that’s exactly how New England Revolution won their first game of the season.

FC Dallas win over DC United

Still without a win this season, DC United manager Ben Olsen called for his players to be more clinical in front of goal before their meeting with a depleted FC Dallas. Unfortunately for him, most of his problems came at the other end of the pitch. DC were only missing defender Steve Birnbaum, but what a miss he proved to be. His team started brightly, pinning Dallas into their own half, albeit without really creating anything of note. But that hope was short-lived; quickly snuffed out by DC’s own hapless defenders.

Barcelona beyond the “MSN” trio

Praise galore has been heaped on Barcelona’s star trio, Messi-Suarez-Neymar, also dubbed MSN. Their phenomenal results speak for themselves. The fact is though that many observers believe, perhaps rather simplistically, that they alone are behind Barça’s success. The strength of Luis Enrique’s team is, however, more than the sum of this trio.

Stealing the opponent team identity could be the best move to send them into confusion.
According to the PSV coach Cocu, the game strategy had to be focused on the game control: never allowing space to the opponent team and attacking using vertical offence.
Troubles for Atlético Madrid appeared at minute 57 of the match.

What went wrong for LA galaxy?

For European fans, unfamiliar with the vagaries of MLS, the Galaxy are an easy access point: they have a recognisable manager in Bruce Arena, who did so much for the national team between 1998 and 2006. They have a host of recognisable players, led by the likes of Steven Gerrard, Robbie Keane and Nigel de Jong, and they are of course, contrary to Bayern Munich’s nickname, the real FC Hollywood. But are they any good?
