Liverpool are ranked 14th in the Premier League for player purchases

The amount of money spent on Liverpool’s transfer of the last 5 years is 136.4 million USD – only one sixth of Man City.

This football team used to spend huge sums of money to recruit Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker, but it was offset by the sale of Coutinho to Barca for $ 183 million.

Liverpool succeeded by buying and selling tactics

Liverpool are only 14th in net spending over the past five years in the Premier League, far behind the $ 763.3 million of the leading team Man City. Man Utd ranked second with 615 million USD. Third place goes to Arsenal with $ 340 million.

Chelsea stands right above Liverpool, when only spending $ 146.5 million. The Stamford Bridge team managed to partially balance the trade thanks to Eden Hazard’s sale to Real Madrid last year. However, if the purchase of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig for $ 68 million is confirmed, the amount of Chelsea will increase again.

Tottenham is the team that actually spent at least among the six big teams: $ 135 million. Meanwhile, Norwich are the only team in the 20 Premier League teams this season to make a profit from a five-year transfer. They earned 32.3 million USD. However, Norwich are currently last and most likely relegated.

Liverpool was praised for not buying Werner

Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore thinks that Timo Werner has not reached the level of Ronaldo or Messi for the old club to buy at all costs.

Since last summer, rumors of Liverpool pursuing Werner have emerged. However, when the contract between Chelsea and the German international was completed, the Leipzig representative said, Liverpool did not make any offers to ask, although Werner is playing the best season of his career with 31 goals in 41 matches.

Many British newspapers say that the $ 68 million fee for Werner is the main reason why Liverpool dropped Leipzig striker in the summer of 2020. But Collymore thinks that the cause is entirely in expertise.

Compared to Liverpool, Chelsea is at the stage of reconstruction in Frank Lampard’s era. At Stamford Bridge, the 24-year-old striker was almost certain to start.

Things you should know about Wimbledon in the UK (Part 1)

Wimbledon, the most prestigious Grand Slam tournament and also the oldest tennis tournament in the world with 143 years of age.

Tennis 2020 – an abandoned season without the Grand Slam

Rafael Nadal, former world No. 1, worried that this year’s tennis season was really over by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and admitted he was focusing on his goal at the Australian Open next year instead of tournaments this year.

Roger Federer played tennis in the snow with a wall while Serena Williams confided in the anxiety she was feeling. Those were some of the first reactions from players when a series of tournaments was canceled because of Covid-19.

ATP and WTA events were suspended until at least mid-July, with Wimbledon canceled and Roland Garros. Previously, Nadal had won a record of 12 titles in this tournament. Roland Garros was postponed until the end of September. Nadal, however, said he was not sure if the leagues could still go as expected.

Not every country is as stable as Germany

In another development, German Chancellor Angela Merkel yesterday issued a notice allowing the operation to gradually return to sports. Accordingly, the first tennis tournament to take place after the pandemic was also in Germany itself.

Ms. Merkel had a meeting with 16 of the country’s state leaders. This meeting to discuss whether to expand or loosen restrictions on social separation. But tennis was pre-approved in three of the 16 states, including the Rhineland-Palatinate, where the Tennis Point Series Exhibition was held.

How is sports industry in the UK after Brexit? (Part 2)

The sport is very entertaining and quite attractive, currently lacking about 1,000 workers to participate in the service of the racetrack, the horseshoe area, while up to 10% of the labor in this sport comes from the EU.

F1 is another example due to its cross-border supply chain-dependent characteristics. 7/11 F1 racing team is located in England, headquarters of the F1 organizers are also in London.

The disadvantages

Cricket and rugby executives expressed concern about the ability to attract and retain top talent around the so-called “Kolpak Rules,” named after Maros Kolpak – a soccer player. throw Slovaks.

As a result, citizens of nations that are part of the European Union Association Agreement (free trade agreements between the EU and 78 African, Caribbean and Pacific countries), enjoy the same rights similar to EU citizens.

Many countries have taken advantage of this to get the service of South African athletes, who thrive on both cricket and rugby. These are also two sports that the British desire to create the influence of the Premier League in football, but the talent supply is not as rich as the athletes’ barrier of visa.

Another difficulty for British sports is the opportunity to organize big events which are their strengths. Thanks to its position as well as the level of organization, the UK is always a prime place to host the largest events of the sports world.

In 2020 alone, England will have semifinals, EURO 2020 finals, Netball World Cups, Snooker, London Grand Prix, Wimbledon and Golf Open Championship.

According to Professor Simon Chadwick, when leaving the EU, many of the UK’s advantages will no longer exist for such exchanges, forcing the government to have preferential policies if it does not want to lose the right to host. Of course, the UK has approved a potential trade agreement with the United States to divert money from the Atlantic across the country to replace the previous EU market.

Reverse training

According to the lawyers, in the post-Brexit time of clubs in the English Premier League, it is difficult to buy players under the age of 18 like other EU football platforms. Previously, English clubs still avoided Article 19 of FIFA’s regulations on the protection of minors, prohibiting the international transfer of players aged 16-18, except for EU countries.

Premier League can play for less than 90 minutes when returning

Gordon Taylor, president of the Association of Professional Football Players (PFA) proposed a plan to reduce the length of each game to ensure the safety of the player.

Late last month, The Sun revealed that each team will be replaced by five players when the Premier League matches return.

The shareholders meeting on 1 May reached a consensus that the Premier League this season will not be canceled. On 11/5, teams and organizers will meet again online to officially vote for the fate of the tournament. If nothing changes, the teams will return to training in mid-May and the season will continue from June 8.

When the Premier League put the idea of ​​reducing the risk of injury and physical wear and tear of the player when having to kick the calendar, the argument turned to another aspect. Sports Mail show the scoreboard this season if only 75 minutes per game.

Newcastle – the newly changed team – finished last in the table on this scoreboard, while they ranked 13th in the normal rankings table. This becomes more sensitive, as the teams at risk of relegation are now said to only agree to play again if the season has no relegation. Even in response to that, the organizers will still face the risks associated with litigation, when the promotion team lose interest.

Six clubs oppose the way Premier League return

Brighton, Watford, West Ham, Bournemouth, Norwich and Aston Villa are the six clubs. They think that it is a disadvantage if not playing at home in the last round of the Premier League.

Besides Brighton, the other five clubs opposing are Watford, West Ham, Bournemouth, Norwich and Aston Villa. The distance between these teams is at most eight points. A win, therefore, would greatly change the rankings.

Last Friday, the Premier League organizers and representatives of 20 clubs met. They decided at all costs to resume the tournament. The remaining 92 matches will be held on a maximum of 10 stadiums. The stadiums are Etihad (Man City), Emirates (Arsenal) and London (West Ham). The home team will not play at home.

The Premier League is expected to return in June. Within the next two weeks, the parties concerned will come to an agreement on how to organize the matches.

The development of bare-knuckle boxing in London

Although it has been centuries old, boxing fists have fallen out of favor, still in the great shadow of its gloved alternative. However, there is a revival going on and some fighters are chosen to fight for the sport. While hardly a box office figure replaces its gloved, it is an important step in the direction of orthodox consciousness.

The battles were organized and promoted by BKB (Bare Knuckle Boxing), a company run by Jim Freeman and Joe Brown, which is the only licensed company promoting the sport. What BKB is trying to achieve is a change in the image of this sport.

The British Council of Boxing Control (BBBC) has kept their distance related to boxing, but partly due to its perception of boxing’s little brother, but they are also completely under no obligation to do so. BBBC has their own sports to take care of, why care about something else?

No matter how closely related it is. Boxing’s bureaucracy is very confusing, with four or five versions of a world champion for every weight category offering a lot of indoor disturbance.

Safety

Another factor is safety. The argument about that is safer, boxing with gloves going down to frequency. A single punch, without gloves, will deal more damage – to the attacker’s hand, as well as the guard’s head – than the punch with a glove. Bare-knuckle boxing, without repetitive and constant screams of head-punching punches, has fewer injuries.

The safety argument will continue, just as wearing pads and helmets in American football has made the sport safer or more dangerous. Certainly the lack of boxing gloves in the bare knuckles (they still wear the strap on their hands) makes the sport seem more rough, even visceral, to the viewer.

The competition to prove masculinity and the strength associated with all combat sports is evident in hand fights, if not so, but there are too many factors that need to be arranged in advance when sports can develop. A large amount of sponsorship, carefully laid out business models, endless promotions and bonafide superstars are all indispensable.

Sports may move in the right direction, but they are only small steps – it has a long way to go. London seems to be leading the way.
