quantity over quality

When you think of a thrilling and passionate spectator sport, chess isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. No disrespect to Garry Kasparov and co but it’s in a whole other world to Borussia Dortmund’s Yellow Wall or a sold-out San Siro. If you’re a football fan though you better get used to thinking like a chess player as UEFA gets set to launch the new and not necessarily improved Champions League. From 2024 onward we’ll see the tournament expanded to 36 teams with a fairly mind-boggling new format. The traditional group stage will be thrown out and replaced with a league format based on a so-called ‘Swiss system’ used in chess. The model is used for tournaments in which there are too many entrants to realistically all play each other,…

the ronaldo show

‘THE CRISTIANO RONALDO SHOW TOOK MORE TIME THAN EXPECTED TO GET GOING IN TURIN’ The summer of 2018 was an exciting time for Juventus. An ambitious rebranding project, a six-part documentary on Netflix and an unprecedented fourth consecutive domestic double ensured the season was an unqualified success. However, one dark cloud remained for the Bianconeri: their failure to win the Champions League. The previous season, the Old Lady had looked sharp in Europe’s premier club competition, losing just once in the group stage before overcoming an impressive Tottenham side in the round of 16. Unfortunately for the Juventus, the quarter-final draw saw them face a Real Madrid team that had won the previous two Champions Leagues. Massimiliano Allegri lost 4-3 on aggregate with a certain Cristiano Ronaldo putting on a masterclass at…

transfer wizards

After taking over as club president in 2010 it took Andrea Agnelli’s Juventus just two seasons to win the Scudetto. However, the club was not the financial powerhouse that it is now, and instead relied on the shrewd market dealings of their new director of sport Giuseppe Marotta. Under his guidance the Old Lady became known for bringing in world class players for remarkable value, allowing them to build a Serie A dominating team whilst balancing the books. The most famous of these is arguably Juventus’ current coach, Andrea Pirlo, who was snapped up on a free transfer when Milan decided against renewing the 31-year-old midfielder’s contract. With a point to prove the World Cup winner had arguably the best spell of his career during four years in a Juventus shirt, making…

mourinho's honour roll

PORTO After winning the domestic cup and the league title on two occasions, Mourinho also put together one of the best Porto teams in the club’s history and won not only the UEFA Cup in 2003 but also the Champions League a year later. CHELSEA His success in Portugal earned him a big move to England, where he took over at Chelsea. With back-to-back Premier League titles and a personality that enamoured the British media, Mourinho became one of the biggest names in the sport. He also added a few domestic cup titles to his resume. But failure on the European stage and a falling out with owner Roman Abramovich saw him sacked in 2007. INTER By the time the 2008-09 season came around Jose was in Serie A with Inter. He immediately won the…

reversal of fortunes

With just a few weeks to go before Christmas last year, Tottenham Hotspur sat at the top of the Premier League. The upcoming game against Liverpool was billed as a possible title decider or, at the very least, a test of whether Spurs could go all the way this season. A few months later the north London club’s season had effectively fallen apart, and manager Jose Mourinho was out of a job. That the axe fell the day after the announcement of the Super League and Spurs’ involvement in it may have been fortuitous – or not. Would chairman Daniel Levy have timed Mourinho’s departure to deflect attention from the most divisive venture in European football? It came in the week of Tottenham’s EFL Cup Final fixture against Manchester City,…
