A-League finals preview: Your side's chances

According to John Greco, updated: 05:53pm Aug 21, 2020, Roar has a 64% chance of winning over WU, https://www.a-league.com.au/news/elimination-final-preview-brisbane-roar-v-western-united-fc

A-League finals preview: Your side's chances

At the start of the season, I felt both Glory and WU had an old team. We have seen that Andrew Durante have cramps towards the end of match sometimes.

The Roar's A-League expert tips and predictions: Elimination finals

Western United has to play 3 matches in 8 days. So, will likely not winning City tonight. Then they have to play elimination on 23 Aug 2020. That means 4 matches in 12 days. I guess this old team cannot endure a boring but practical match vs Roar in the elimination.

Nix should win Glory. That means City vs Nix and Roar vs Sydney FC in the semis

I hope Roar wins Sydney FC because the last time they met it was close.

As for the other semi, no clue. Maclaren holds the key perhaps.

Who really is the favourite heading into the finals?

Don’t scratch your head as you have little hair.

The A-League season 2019-20 is far from done and I'm still scratching my head

Midfielder,
Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam have already been preparing for the 2034 WC finals bid, https://www.deviantart.com/brendanboman/art/2034-FIFA-World-Cup-ASEAN-Concept-Logo-758907203

They have designed a logo too. So, don’t think about it.

Anyway, FFA has officially announced about the interest of bidding the 2030 WC. It is possible. However, the partnership is limited to NZ. https://theworldgame.sbs.com.au/buoyant-australia-eyes-another-bid-for-men-s-world-cup

Now let's try to host the men's World Cup

As for CAF, the partnership has Zimbabwe, Egypt and Nigeria (the only one interest in bidding).

ps

Therefore, Australia can only partner with NZ. The advantage is that NZ is in OFC not AFC. So, this gives the reason of exemption from the rotation rule.

Seems people are focusing on the 12 numbers of stadium of capacity bigger than 40k of seats. However, the bigger factor is whether or not China wants to host the 2030 or 2034 tournament.
By rule (norm), AFC cannot have the hosting privilege since Qatar is to host in 2022. However, Fifa president Gianni Infantino has bent the rule, allowing China to bid for the 2030 version, https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2019/06/05/fifa-open-china-bid-2030-world-cup-blow-gb-ireland-hopes/
So, if China wants and hosts the 2030 tournament, the succeeding 2034 World Cup finals will not be in Asia. Why would FIFA to bend the rule again?
On the other hand, if China decides to go for the 3034 world cup finals, Australia, NZ and Indonesia have no chance.
China’s interest depends only on the performance of her national team, for sure.
If Australia wants to host the 2034 WC finals, wins the 2023 Asian Cup to frustrate China.

Good idea!

Win it.

Win this 2023 world cup to leverage the hosting right of 2034 World Cup together with NZ again.

Women's World Cup hosting win exactly what football in Australia needs

Sepp Blatter No winter World Cup
Qatar’s attitude now indicates that it is its will to move to winter. Yes, there are people wanting to move. However, you must have noticed that both the UK and Germany league’s leaders have said recently that they are against the move to winter. Haven’t you heard that?

Yes, there are numerous people asking for that. But that was led by the pre-decided UEFA leader who promised to move before the vote.

Why there should be a debate? Many don’t like it. There is no need to debate. If you want to change, apply to FIFA. Else, give up and surrender the right back to FIFA.

I have just woken to feel that actually Qatar knows by now that there is no solution to the heat problem in the stadia, unless fully enclosed. There is no problem to cool down an enclosed 60000 people stadium if enclosed like a huge shopping mall. However, if it is open, then there may be a problem resulting from the very hot wind coming from the deserts of the neighbouring Saudi Arabia.

In Australia, sometimes, there are winds coming down from the very hot deserts in the middle of the continent. Not very often, but may happen. As for Qatar, Eastern sea wind is not a huge problem. But if summer wind is coming from the inland deserts, then, there is no point of just having artificial floating clouds to provide shades on the stadia. Also, I am wondering how what they said a cooling effect like the skin of a lizard may work.

But if fully enclosed, then other problems arise, like fire escape, fire safety, appearance, and cost, etc.

So, what they are wanting for a debate is a hoax. Actually they can’t solve the problem. They should give up.

The engineers said in “The National, ae” that I read today are nothing new:

All those saying of absorption chiller, solar panel, retractable roof, auto window curtain, air below the seats, thermo storage (ice storage) are nothing new. These are decades-old technologies. The only new saying is to link old technologies in a new way. But this is suspicious! Carbon neutral is very suspicious.

As a retired air-conditioning engineer and previous member of ASHRAE (American Society of Heating Refrigerating and Air-conditioning Engineers), i dare to say: nothing new. And the saying of linking old technologies to a make a new invention is not true. Just improving.

As a retired environmentalist, having a master degree in environmental study, I am very reserved in the saying of “carbon-neutral”.

By the way, absorption chillers have only one advantage: quiet running. It is not energy efficient. If really new generations of absorption chillers can be more energy efficient, I am objective in updating my knowledge.

That 500-seats model is not convincing to me at all. Scaling from 500 to 50,000 capacity is 100 times bigger! All engineers are good mathematicians, knowing that this is not a linear proportional function. Even linear, it is 100 times bigger.

Some professionals are just money wise professionals.

If air-conditioned stadia can really work, bring it on. I really want to learn.

Why Qatar shouldn’t host the 2022 World Cup

I had learnt nothing from that match (12/05/1979, Arsenal v Manchester United in FA Cup final) because I had no hope for Brisbane Roar to win against CCM in the Grand Final of A-league (2011). In the last 5 minutes, many just prepared to congratulate CCM. But Paartalu changed the fate in the last second.

Luckly, I had not left the stadium as many did. I remember when Henrique got a goal to 1-2, the fat guy behind me (who did not look to be a soccer fan) became crazy. And I thought why he would be so mad as there were just a few minutes left.

As banks are prepared for 6 months deferred re-payment, the best case scenario is A-league to resume in October.

Hopefully, the 2019 to 2020 premiership and championship can be decided in October 2020 after A-league resumes. And the 2020 to 2021 A-league season starts in November 2020 with 12 teams and 2 encounters (home and away) making only 22 matches.

It's official: A-League becomes final major sporting code to postpone season

Visit this website and feel the situation. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
Since March the new coronavirus cases and deaths has increased exponentially.
The A-league may need at least 6 months before it can resume. This idea is supported by the fact that banks defer loan repayments for six months due to coronavirus crisis. https://www.savings.com.au/home-loans/banks-to-defer-loan-payments-for-six-months

Robbie's Roar set to test Sydney FC

In the last 10 minutes of the match last night, the blue shirts just stood there. That was the same as in the match vs Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors. Are they too old?

Robbie's Roar set to test Sydney FC

The match between Roar and Jets was good to watch on TV, exciting.
For a while, I thought the drum and yelling of the fans were played through speakers to create atmosphere (like a show). But later on, it was found that those yelling and drum beats were from the fans outside the gate.
Maybe, the host can play records through speakers in matches to come.

No fans, no worries for A-League

Okay, if not seriously, you can called them whatever. That is for sure.
“the main point is that they play a back three which becomes a back two when one of the three defenders overlap or attack” Then, why you write a page about “overlapping” as “overlapping” has been used for decades.
The title is “The art of the overlapping centre-back”. However, the players you mentioned are not centre-backs. Refer at least to this webpage: http://gdfra.org.au/formations.htm
Regardless of 4-defenders or 3-defenders, overlapping means the strategy used by the LB or RB.
In your essay, the players you mentioned about are LB or RB, They are not center-backs.
