World Cup Spread Betting – Get Your Football Clubs in Order

Tough new guidelines from UEFA will make clubs operate within their means from the start of the 2012/13 season. The move is set to bring more discipline to club finances and also take the pressure off player’s wages and transfers fees. Clubs will have to compete within their revenue. UEFA believes it will encourage investment in infrastructure, sport facilities and youth academies. It also believes it will help the clubs to sustain themselves in the long term and settle their liabilities in the good time.

The break even clause is a new departure for UEFA whereby the clubs will be monitored for 3 years. They will not be allowed to spend more than they earn from revenue give or take 5 million. They will be able to spend what they like on their stadiums, training facilities, youth academy and their communities.

The huge investments of billionaire owners will be severely cut though. Over the 3 seasons they will only be able to put in 45 million euro over the break even point to help pay wages and transfer fees. This means that if the clubs owners want to go and buy their way into the Champions League they can’t. Sounds good in principle to stop the big clubs splashing the cash but it also stops the smaller clubs like Fulham who have a mega rich owner. They won’t be able to spend anymore of Al Fayeds money above the 45 million euro, the same amount as Mr Abramovich down the road at Chelsea. So suddenly it’s not so fair anymore as Fulham wouldn’t have the same revenue stream as Chelsea or the ways of increasing it either.

At the moment most of the Premier league clubs are alright. But Aston Villa, Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool would all set alarm bells ringing at UEFA with the huge losses they are incurring. It seems the huge debts some of the big clubs are holding won’t be taken into account at the moment. The system will only be used as monitoring tool for the moment and clubs won’t be banned from UEFA competitions. They would first be warned and put under review before been banned.

Another part of the clause states that clubs will not be able to owe money to rivals, players, staff or tax authorities at the end of the season. They’re hoping to avoid what happened at Portsmouth who went into administration owing millions in transfer fees, tax and VAT to name a few. I think I read somewhere yesterday that they had offered to pay their creditors 20% of what they owed them. A recent report on European clubs said that 50% of them where making a loss and that 20% where in serious financial danger.

Why Football Fans Need Their Own Social Network

In recent years social media has evolved from a communication tool between people to a dominant driving force on the World Wide Web. Nowadays social media has a huge impact not only on the digital realm, but also on business, politics, trends and almost all aspects of our world.

A common assumption is that social networks are totally driven by people, but that is partly incorrect, in reality social networks are driven by dominant forces and media giants. In reality people are not shaping social media, but social media is shaped for them and they just follow, which is a sad reality by itself because social networks were supposed to be driven by the people not the other way around.

How this is related to football. Football is the most popular sport on earth, more than 3.4 Billion people watched world cup 2010, almost half of the planet! And it was estimated that about 1 billion people watched world Cup 2014 final between Germany and Argentina. Traditionally football has always been covered by TV, newspapers and news websites. But in recent years social networks started taking an important portion of this coverage. With the shift from traditional news to social media news, and from computer devices to mobile devices, people are now more comfortable in consuming football news in their favorite social network, and at the comfort of their mobile devices. You can get all football news from all sources at your news feeds depending on the pages that you follow, compare this with search engines or bookmarking several websites, the first option became the more popular method of following sports events.

Although football has good presence in top social networks but for football enthusiasts that presence is missing or not enough, for instance you still do not get updated with all football events, and as a football fan you will need to do exhausting search to follow all the pages you are interested in. Other problem is that football news are buried inside swarm of posts from all other subjects, where you can not easily filter out posts that are not related to football.

Football fans deserve their own social network where they can talk exclusively about football and share related news and stories. They need social channels that are dedicated for football fans, where they can meet, interact and share football passion. They need a place where they can follow the latest news and matches results without the need to leave to search for the information.

In a new world governed by social media, people are becoming addicted to the ease of access to information that social media provides. And because people are obsessed with ease of access to what they are interested in, the future of social media will be shifting towards niche social networks that are specialized in specific interests and affinities.

Indianapolis Semi-Pro Football Team Wins National Championship

The Hoosier Hurricanes invaded Homestead, Florida for last weekend’s 4th annual Minor League Football News (MLFN) Super Football Weekend strong winded and left with reign.

In a game dominated by defense, the Hurricanes hammered the Carolina Express 41-0 to win MLFN’s AA National Championship.

«To reach this point so quickly is incredible,» said Hurricanes head coach John Starlin. «I really feel like a proud father to all of those guys.»

While the ‘Canes’ offense was strong, the play of their defense was dominant. The ‘Canes forced eight turnovers and controlled the Express’ offense, which towered over them in size and power. Early in the contest, it looked like the Express were going to use their Power I offensive attack to run right down the throat of the ‘Canes’ defense. When the Express were forced to throw, however, the speedy Hurricane secondary was able to take the game away. The first of four Express interceptions was thrown on that opening drive, and the Hurricanes never looked back.

«They were a tough team to scout, but I really think they underestimated our speed,» said Starlin. «Other coaches from their league were able to help me out as far as scouting, but I knew as solid as our defense was that we could play with anybody.»

Staying with the defensive theme of the game, linebacker Deon Smith was awarded the game’s MVP for his 12 tackle performance. He also intercepted a pass and forced a fumble.

The AA national title was the perfect end to a season that was already storybook for the Indianapolis squad, founded by co-owners Starlin, David Day, and NFL wide receiver Reggie Wayne. In their first year of existence, the Hurricanes were awarded Best New Team in the Midwest by MLFN after finishing 13-1 in the Ohio Valley Football League (OVFL). Their OVFL season finished with a Super Bowl victory over the Charlotte (MI) Roughriders, 21-0.

«This has really been a dream season for us,» said Starlin.

Starlin’s players have also won numerous accolades from MLFN. Four ‘Canes were honored with Midwest All-American status: Derrick Ellis was an honorable mention Midwest All-American at running back, wide receiver Scott Penick made second team Midwest All-American, and Corey Crumpton and Charles Avant were first and second team at defensive back, respectively.

Ellis, a former «Mr. Indiana» while playing running back in high school, was also named Running Back of the Year in the Midwest Region by MLFN.

The Hurricanes will return to the OVFL next season and compete to become the first ever back-to-back champion in league history, a feat no team has accomplished in 40 years of competition.

«We are trying to develop something special here,» said Starlin.

It certainly looks like the Hurricanes are off to a roaring start.
