Arsenal’s record-expensive star continued to slide

Nicolas Pepe faced the risk of being on the bench for a long time after an act of distraction in the 0-0 draw against Leeds United on the morning of November 23.

“Now what about Pepe? Arsenal’s £ 72m signing faces a long way to go back after a crazy moment at Leeds United,” said Charles Watts, a big headline on Goal.

Pepe kicked his own chance
Arsenal strategist Mikel Arteta was dumbfounded when he saw referee Anthony Taylor watching the VAR screen. Arsenal captain seems to know what will happen to Pepe like everyone else.

It is only a matter of time until referee Taylor pulls out a red card for Pepe. The Ivory Coast player pretended to be shocked at the decision of the “Black King”. That makes no sense.

But that’s not what the worst happened to Pepe. Former midfielder Lille “kicked” the chance to score with coach Mikel Arteta. The scenario of Pepe having to sit on the bench after the suspension ends is gradually appearing.

Pepe is still a little bit lucky when Arsenal found a 0-0 draw against Leeds United. However, that most likely does not change coach Mikel Arteta’s plan to use personnel, who has suffered a lot of pressure related to having Pepe start.

During a trip to West Yorkshire, the Spaniard responded to what the home team fans wanted. He put Pepe in the starting lineup, but the winger disappointed his teacher.

Pepe destroys the best that he has created before having to receive a red card. He had a situation of speed dribbling on the left wing, before making a dangerous cross in.

However, Pepe’s crazy moments will make fans remember forever and forget the value he brought to “Gunners”. Goal commentary blockbuster £ 72 million will face a real battle to regain confidence from coach Mikel Arteta in the near future.

The escape between man United and Chelsea

In the third round of the Premier League 2020/21, Man United and Chelsea both escaped thanks to goals scored in compensatory minutes.

The third round of the Premier League 2020/21 had dramatic matches on the first day of the match, with the focus on the two big guys Man United and Chelsea. These two matches, although they have different scores, but share the same scenario.

That was the last-minute goal. However, despite the same scenario, the two teams showed clearly different signs.

Man United have always been lucky?
The match against Brighton will go into the history of the VAR when the referee blows to the end of the match, but still changes his decision to refer to the VAR and give Man United the chance to have 3 points. Under the rules of FIFA, referee Chris Kavanagh did not make a mistake.
Accuracy is more important for granted in this industrial football age. A goal is not small at all if it is the decisive factor at the end of the season, especially the ranking of the European Cup. Losing a goal, sometimes dragging the club away tens of millions of pounds the following season. Therefore, the correctness is to re-establish the “market fairness” for football investors.
However, the accuracy of the above law is wrong with football rules for hundreds of years. For more than a century, audiences have been accustomed to the fact that when the whistle ends a match, that means closing the script, not editing, not changing. However, it is clear that referee Kavanagh broke that rule. Basically, the “time limit” story in FIFA’s law on VAR is still lax and ambiguous.

Certainly, there will have to be more detailed adjustments so that this “no time limit” will be shortened within the date of the match or how many hours after the whistle ends the match. In general, teams can completely complain about the results from the 2018 World Cup,

However, that is the story of FIFA. What is more interesting is the story of Man United. In their resurrection scenario against Brighton, what signs are they leaving?

First, still have to mention the defense. The defense line of Man United was broken, there was no good communication between the four defenders, it had no connection with the midfield. However, the most to blame person in the defense must be Maguire with inherent weaknesses: slow, clumsy maneuvering, weak hand-to-hand disputes and inaccurate passing.

The modern center-back is defined differently than it was 20 years ago. Defensive qualities are taken for granted, and a center-back with only good defensive qualities is enough to be considered fairly average. The midfielder’s requirement now must also be the ability to pass the ball at all distances. And Maguire, before Brighton, did not have good passes for Man United to organize the game right from the home (build from back).

Second, midfield continues to be a disaster. Paul Pogba played soulless, unworthy of being one of Man United’s most expensive midfielders.
In defensive support, the midfield was poor, in the organization of the midfield was also ungainly when it did not fulfill the task of rotating and coordinating the ball. Fred did not go into the field much better. And in the match Bruno Fernandes was not in his best form, Man United became completely useless.

Solskjaer’s problem is also a backup factor to change tactics when it is difficult. The fact that he put Van de Beek and Bailly in place of Martial and Greenwood to turn to play 3-4-2-1 was almost ineffective. Although United eventually won the match, the pressure they put on their opponents after the substitution was not at all obvious. To be blunt, they win by luck, something they’ve been “assigned” to for so long.

Luck does not stay forever. If at Man United there are no positive changes in every person, from head coach to player, their future will be full of risks and uncertainties. This is a really worrying sign and if the progress of their season continues like this, it will not be far from “counting the number of games remaining” for Solskjaer.

How to become a good sports coach (part 2)

  1. Pay attention to both soft and hard skills

At one time or another, we all seem to support or hide when a very good professional colleague brings trouble to us in a bad way. To become a good coach, you must point out this clearly.

Managers are sometimes hesitant to direct someone too inert, passive, incapable of solving problems, or other things, because they always feel they’re not clear enough, authentication to discuss. However. A successful work environment depends on a lot of things, not simply a place to do the job.

Your coach’s role is to help people develop all the skills they need, not just professional skills.

  1. As a supportive leader for the players

Former business management and ethics expert Robert Greenleaf coined the term servant leadership to describe the path leaders and coaches must treat their followers to turn them into the most effective assistants.

If your team doesn’t serve you the way you want them to, ask yourself: How well have I treated them?

  1. Prepare for each tactical meeting

When starting a training job, the flight will not mean anything. Instead, think about what you’re about to say before saying it out. If you want to critique – try to use the language where you find yourself stuck or things you can make a difference to.

Again, it is not about judging a person, but trying to get them into the game field and help them do their best.

  1. Ethical responsibility

A coach must understand the ethics and professional standards of coaching, as well as put into practice the theological theological principles of the profession. In this sense, it is not only valuable to know these rules, but they must also be applied daily to professional practice.

  1. Start when needed
    Coaches are personal development experts and not psychologists that provide psychotherapy (except for some who are also clinical psychologists). It is possible to introduce your player to another expert if necessary.
