Years have gone by and I’ve finally learned to accept myself for who I am: a beggar for good soccer. I go about the world, hand outstretched, and in the stadiums I plead: “A pretty move, for the love of God.” And when good soccer happens, I give thanks for the miracle and I don’t give a damn which team or country performs it.” Taken from Eduardo Galeno Soccer in Sun and ShadowISS 328 Culture of SoccerMy typical modus operandi is to spout off without information or consideration, and I have always claimed that Arsenal and Chelsea have had the ugliest change shirts in the Premier League era. In the last two decades, the two London teams have been United’s biggest rivals for hardware, so I have had a keen interest in their sporting and fashion performance.
I’ve made a few similarly poor decisions when refereeing (I dare say every ref has) and even when the hard done by team is livid at you, overcompensating is a terrible idea. If nothing else, it just means both teams stop trusting ou rather than just one. 0 points submitted 16 days ago.
It a shame a coach or trainer didn teach him some strategies and tricks to get buckets while protecting his knees.Jyxxe 414 points submitted 2 days agoFederer is to tennis what Wayne Gretzky is to hockey he might not be the biggest, strongest, or fastest, but his intelligence, instincts, endurance, and consistency are off the charts. The man has been living and breathing tennis for so long, that he just has learned to be where he needs to be, sometimes before his opponent knows where the ball is going.You can see him take off almost immediately after the ball left Kyrgios racket, a move that is less about hesitation and more about confirmation he guessed where the ball was going to go, prepared himself to move in that direction, confirmed that the ball was going there, and by the time the ball made it over the the net, he was already in motion to be where he needed to be. This type of behaviour is absolutely consistent across every game Federer plays, to the point where sometimes he seems more like a tennis machine than a pro.I don know if he the Greatest of All Time, but when he retires, it will be a tremendous loss for the sport of tennis as a whole.Edit: I getting a lot of shit for the last line I wrote, so let me clarify I only wrote it like that because I knew that if I wrote “Federer is the GOAT,” or whatever without any wiggle room, someone else would complain that I forgetting about Nadal, Agassi, or one of the other “Greats.” Didnt think y would interpret it as “I don think he the best.” I absolutely do.
