SERIOUSLY, WHO’S THE CHIEF BUMBLEFUCK IN CHARGE OF NETFLIX’S PARENTAL ADVISORY MESSAGES?!?
okay, how about a more appropriate title for this post?
YOU CAN EITHER BE A FIERCE AMAZON, OR A CAMO WRAPPED VAGINAL LIFE SUPPORT
Based on the crude sub-sub title for this episode, one can safely guess how strongly i feel about this issue.
Yes dear reader. And to you 15 redditors who sent me chat messages and the other 26 who sent me direct messages asking for my input about military life as a woman. Finally, you will get the answers you are looking for.
As usual, before i begin on my usual rant, let me start off with an intro.
INTRO
Be advised, i may or may not be a wee bit tipsy while writing this. I find i write best when i am left alone with my partner playing “straddle-a-rocket-on-full-afterburners-on-a-night-flyby-exercise” and with a tumbler full of scotch within arm’s reach. Today’s post is brought to you by “small-batch-whisky-whom-i-shall-choose-to-not-name-because-im-actually-not-sponsored-by-them” and im staring at a stack of unnecessary paperwork that some brand spanking new good idea fairies (who will fofahkssakes will get lost in the woods the first chance they get) have dropped in my lap, putting me in just a teensy weensy homicidal mood.
THE SISTERHOOD OF “DIE, MOFO, DIE!”
You have finished your basic training and occupation training. Depending on your nationality, you may undergo additional training, or you might be looking at orders chopping you off to your first unit. Yay! (Those first introductory training courses in the military doesnt count in my books since everyone is weird there anyway. Its where they weed out those unsuitable for this life and skim the cream of the crop.)
Dont break into your happy little dance yet. Its just beginning for you.
Being a woman in the military is just, strange.
Lets get out of the way the obvious gimmes first.
SEX AND RELATIONSHIPS
Look. Im not gonna start with a sermon and go “dont shit where you eat” or “the military workplace is STILL a professional workplace, act professionally” sermonizing bullshit on you. Youre an adult in a professional environment. Act accordingly. Kind of high and mighty of me seeing as i married another military person. All im saying is, be smart. If youre looking at co workers for potential life partners, have at it. Contrary to popular belief, military people are the most romantic people ever. Sure, were a little bit messed up in the head and come with some baggage, on account of all the killing and out performing the enemy when it comes to converting human bodies into pink mist, but who doesnt have baggage in their life?
If you even come remotely close to being decent looking civvie side, you will be an instant army (or insert favorite branch here) babe. You are surrounded by lonely, horny, and rowdy males. This is normal. In most cases, you will be exactly the same. Boys might think were all prim and proper and sugar and spice and everything nice, but the last time i looked down, im rocking the same beef curtains as you ladies. I know we are so much more grosser?/grossier? than dudes in most cases. Exhibit A: female side of any public bathroom.
Gone are the days when you have to put in the work and effort just to look good for a date. Seriously, all you have to do is change into civillian clothing on the weekend and you will find yourself inundated with invitations to a date before you even sign out of the main gate. If you’re above average looking and actually look good in combats, you will smell the pheromones from a mile away.
Let me make myself clear: THIS. DOES. NOT. MAKE. YOU. SPECIAL. There will come a time when your whole life will revolve around the military and you will have little time left to socialize in a civillian setting. This will mean that it may be possible your dating pool will consist of purely fellow military members. Before you dip your toes in the work pool, remember that your situation might be very well the same for the people you are dating.
All im saying is, be an adult. I highly believe that the antiquated rules prohibiting fraternization amongst the ranks is meant to mitigate any risks of abuse. This is 2020. That should no longer be the case. If a relationship ends badly, DO NOT use your hooha as a weapon to “win” the break up. I have seen so many cases of scumbag women in the ranks who are only one level evolved beyond being vaginal life support abuse the new protections and equality measures enacted in the workplace. All you’re doing is unravelling all that work and preventing honest, hard working women from succesfully joining the ranks, and making it hard for legitimate victims to attain justice.
How do i know this? I was sexually assaulted by a senior student during leadership school. (Fucking call me a rape “victim”, i fucking dare you.) I have been known to be the wild child all throughout my life. But nothing I have done made me deserve what that animal did to me. I had to fight hard to prove to the system that i am claiming that a legitimate offense took place, and i want justice, goddammit. Im not trying to game the system, im not trying to seek the spotlight, and im not trying to “win” a breakup.
There are women out there who have had it worse than me. There are women out there who will never breathe the breath of the living again as a result of what happened to them. Do NOT even dare exploit a system trying to fix itself to prevent any more dead and violated women. Dont.
Tales of woe and sadness aside, i have also seen women bat their eyelashes at dumbass teenage barely out of highschool males in their class and ask if they can carry some of their loadout in their rucksack. And then complain in the next breath that life as a modern woman is still heavily biased. No honey, you dont get to do that. Take off the uniform and go sell pictures of your feet on gonewild if you wanna cash in on your vajayjay. You dont get to do that while wearing the same uniform that i do, that i actually earned the right to wear.
Now, on to the more practical parts:
HYGIENE AND FEMALE CARE
  1. Underwear: some militaries provide an allowance to female members so they can buy their own bras. Before you go to Victoria’s Secret or La Perla, ask yourself: how busty am i? If you are at the point where you need underwire in your brassiere, believe me, those wires will come popping out as soon as you shrug on your plates and squeeze your tatas. Do yourself a favour and have your own sports bras custom made.
If you’re a fan of small underwear like I am, do yourself a favour and leave the thongs at home when in field exes/deployments, and wear the issued boxers. Even though i scoff at the idea of the issued flame retardant boxers being your last line of defense against being burnt to a crisp, my reasons are a lot more practical. Where i live, lingerie dont grow on trees. That shit’s expensive. If it gets ripped up or damaged or rendered unwearable due to adverse living conditions, or stupid delicates murdering laundry machines at the wash, the military will not reimburse you for it.
  1. Feminine Hygiene: due to our anatomy, we are a lot more prone to UTIs and yeast infections when living in adverse conditions. Even when in FOBs that do their best to make themselves your home away from home, the conditions usually are still pretty ripe and favourable for infections to develop in unsanitary conditions. Set yourself up for success by making sure to pack enough washes and baby wipes. My job involves paying strict attention to small details. In fact, we are a lot more vigilant about it than your standard grunt. Its because our lives depend on it. How can i trust a soldier in my unit to be observant enough and not get themselves and me blown up, if i cant even trust them not to be taken out of commission by a UTI in the desert because they let their stank get so stanky to the point that they need an IV drip of antibiotics?
  2. Feminine Health: if you think your periods are a killer when youre in the comfort of your own home, think again. Imagine having cramps in the middle of the desert heat, stuffed in a bullet magnet tin box on wheels, surrounded by heavily armed stinky dudes, in a hostile country populated with innocent people who just want to live their lives in peace, and people who look like those innocent people, but instead of being peaceful, look forward to blowing themselves up just to kill you. Do yourself a favour: get an IUD or a hormone shot like Depoprovera. It will stop your periods dead in its tracks, and the brief period of discomfort after having those measures installed in your body is worth it.
PHYSICAL FITNESS
Just because you and your booty has 40k Instagram followers doesnt mean you are physically fit to join the military. Imagine all the “exercises” you do in the gym. Now imagine doing all that while wearing at least 150 lbs of kit. And then imagine doing that in a situation where your physical fitness may or may not be the one that saves your life.
I dont care if you have no ambitions towards joining the combat arms jobs. I knew of a guy who on gate duty while on deployment in the Balkans. Him and a buddy were lit up by effective fire to cover a young man trying to rush their gate while wearing a SVIED. This guy tackled him from behind and froze him in place so he couldnt clack himself off while trusting his buddy is providing covering fire. Him and his buddy are both cooks.
Physical fitness is an important part of your job requirements in the military regardless of what trade you apply for. Physical fitness is also a personal responsibility. Do not sign the dotted line expecting the military to whip you up into shape. All you will accomplish is break yourself trying.
Going back to the different physicality of the female anatomy, make sure your workouts are geared to fit into that military oriented demand. Gym fit is entirely different from military fit. I have always had lower back problems since hitting puberty because of my boobs. The problems started escalating even before i joined the military. I had never been fat my entire life but i soon realized i was never physically fit either. I depended on my high metabolism, raging hormones, and natural flexibility as a teenager to carry me through cheerleading and all the sports that i used to do. As an adult, i soon realized i cant depend on those things anymore. I had to focus on integrating a lot of core and back exercises on top of my workouts.
A physique based workout is not a strengthening workout. But that doesnt mean you have to give up on your goals of popping a six pack, popping some lats, and sporting a wicked v cut. You just have to be smart with your workouts. Focus on functional workouts that would enable you to go on long patrols while carrying heavy gear. Do that, do well with that, and the physique will come.
Last but not least, if you smoke, quit. Im not gonna sermon you on this. Theres plenty of information out there letting you know about the health risks associated with smoking. Later on in your career, sure, there might be some room for a vice. But smoking during military training when you desperately need your cardio will not do you any favours. I smoke here and there with my boys only when on deployment. A couple of exceptions for real life reasons when in garrison, say the birth of a baby, or some success that needs celebrating. But i only smoke cigars. Cubanos mostly, because if im gonna smoke a cancer stick, it will be an expensive cancer stick. Lmao. I also learned how to chew tobacco while working with Americans. Chewing tobacco is quite an interesting experience. I dont like doing it, but its quite an effective ice breaker when working with American counter parts, especially their Marines, when i approach them and ask: “want a dip?” and hand them a can of Skoal.
POST SCRIPT
I originally wanted to post this as a series. Once the series is completed, i will create an index post and post that into militarystories and this sub. I have only posted one so far before this post.
However, my situation has changed. I am now in a position where i am doing the job of two people while our tempo is dramatically sped up. I will still take time to answer questions and requests for advice, but sadly, the endstate i was envisioning will not be possible until at least for a long while. This post has been marinating in my drafts folder for quite some time before i finally had to be honest with myself and admit that i am going about this the wrong way.
I do not want to disappoint everyone who sent me PMs and chat messages asking me for advice. I think doing it this way is a happy medium. I will still entertain private conversations and questions. Just please be patient if it takes me a while to respond.
Finally, to u/fishtheunicorn, i apologize for putting you on the spot like this. But, i usually creep the profiles of people who DM, chat, and follow me. I noticed that out of all of them, you are the only one who is still at such a young age in their life. So here’s a piece of advice that i send out to you and to similar fresh eager young faces like you only.
You have finally graduated high school. For some of you, its “now what?”. For others, its your country’s version of your elite military academy where you graduate with a Baccalaureate and a commission. For a select few, the military is a last resort in hopes of not getting lost.
I joined the military as an already full grown adult. I left behind a professional career and discarded years’ worth of education that helped establish that. I do not regret any of it. All of those life experiences has made me a better person, a better leader, and a more than average soldier. My job requires me to be bold and decisive. While leaders like me are allowed leeway to make mistakes, mistakes made at our level usually produces a dead or badly injured friendly soldier at the other end of the decision making process.
If the military is the endstate you have been working on your entire life, holding off on signing that dotted line while gaining some more life experiences wouldnt hurt at the very least. Travel. Live with foreigners. Learn a new language and a new culture. Learn how to work and lead in a professional environment. Watch yourself be a rockstar once you finally join this unique brothesisterhood and bring all this wealth of knowledge and experience to the table.
If the military is nothing but a “eh, well, better than working at McDonalds” option for you after high school, know this: there is a place for you in the military. There is plenty of opportunities for you to succeed. But you only achieve this if you are honest with yourself first and foremost and humble enough to know that you need to learn a lot. Shed all preconceived notions and overestimated trust in your capabilities.
To close this, i am more than willing to coach you specifically on how to prep for success in the military if youre willing to bear with me and my personal time constraints. While i may not be familiar with the intricacies of applying in your particular nation’s military, there are a lot more i can help you out with.
😘😘😘
Edit: ladies! Ho-ly. Lol. Okay. Got the gist of all the comments and the PMs. Okay. Im linking a few shops you guys might want to check out. All of these are shops i have personally done business with in the past, and they all do either custom work, or custom editing for your sports bras. They are in different countries and some of them only accept in person/in store business. But the beauty of these times being so unpredictable due to COVID, you might just be able to convince them to do remote work with you as long as you clearly articulate what you want. The prices are a bit steeper than your usual already expensive lingerie, but i swear, its worth it.
I too have plugged in “custom made sports bras” in Google and came up with frustrating hits. What initially got me started with it is that i was able to sweet talk a seamstress into “experimenting” with my bras. I have a pair that was as close to perfect as i have ever had, and all she had to do was strip it down and resize it in her shop based on my measurements. It might be a harder process for some, and it might be an easier process to others. It depends on every single woman’s body type.
Technically, theres no such thing right now as a “true” custom made/bespoke sports bra. Its all just basically mass produced stretchy sweat wicking fabric that you jam your ta-tas into and hope for the best. I dont like “true” sports bras. I dont like how i have to peel them off like a shirt. (Yeah, yeah, i get it, there’s ones that have clasps, but thats a recent development). I prefer swimwear bras or cheer practice bras. Those ones have a lot more optionality and customization options without taking away too much from the support aspect of things.
Putting this info in a military context, you dont need a “true” sports bra specifically. Take this advice and adapt it into your personal context. Maybe youre like me who still can benefit from a hybrid bra like a swim/cheer bra for support to approximate the support you get from underwire. Maybe you need to double up on the sports bra so you get to control the “squish” factor you get from the plates. (I actually had to do this before). Or maybe, sadly, its time to really look at a reductive surgery as an option.

Edit 2: Gawdfakendammit. Anyone know how to get rid of the annoying cover photos that links pull into the post? I dont want this post’s cover photo to be a picture of a boob holster. Lol.

Fundraising is not like dating - Advice for First Time Founders

Image: Tim Gouw - Unsplash
Fundraising as a first-time founder is really hard Don't put all your egss in one investor's basket.
To go out and fundraise as a first-time founder is really freaking hard.
And reading investors’ mysterious signals is one of the toughest challenges. If you get it wrong, it can end up costing you your entire company.
In 99% of cases, investors act nice and friendly in meetings and seem positive about your startup. They are professionals who want to build relationships; it’s part of their job.
During a meeting they might say, “This is interesting, it fits into our strategy,” or they might even say, “We could maybe invest €1m.”
However, somewhere around here the intentions get lost in translation — and founders take that friendliness and discussion of possibilities as a commitment.
They think, “It’s done, investor on board!”
And then they make a big mistake: they stop talking to other investors.

Kiss a lot of frogs

I’ve seen founders wait out the two-to-three months fundraising process with one investor at a time until they have no more runway left. It’s painful to see — so let me share some VC secrets with you, based on my own experience inside a VC firm.
A real investment process couldn’t be any more different to what you see on TV’s Dragons’ Den. Thousands of founders pitch in to join the TV show, and once you’re in front of the investors there are two scenarios.
Either the investors praise you and invest… or, they don’t like what you offer and can be painfully honest about it.
Startup founders in Europe looking to raise capital from traditional investors face a very different process.
In reality, it’s quite easy to get into the room with the investor and have a friendly meeting. What is hard is taking a couple of investor meetings and turning that into a term sheet.
Let me explain with some data. The German VC fund Speedinvest shared its deal flow data for 2019. There, we find some interesting facts to guide founders through the opaque investment process.
Speedinvest received 1,422 pitch decks in 2019. Almost half of those startups were invited for a meeting. In other words, as a founder you just need to have a pitch deck which is slightly better than the average to get on the phone with the investor!
But after that, it gets really tough. Speedinvest has a conversion rate of less than 1% from first meeting to term sheet. Those are slim odds for a founder.
From what I’ve seen, other VCs have similar numbers.
We also have some investors that seem to commit orally but never send a term sheet as expected. According to a survey of 110 founders by Christoph Janz at VC firm Point Nine, 47% of founders claim that an investor made them believe they had a deal, but never sent a term sheet. Even worse, 14% of founders have experienced an investor backing out of a signed term sheet.
As a secret columnist shared in Sifted, investors can act in horrible ways that will hurt your business.
As a founder, this is really what you should expect when you go out on your fundraising tour.

Is it me?

So why does this happen?
First of all, investors tend to be extroverts, as their job succeeds or fails based on the network of people around them.
Secondly, investors will never make a decision based on only one meeting, or even two. Investors will always be super friendly and positive to get all the information they need to make a final decision. Some of them might even be meeting you just because they want to milk you for information about the market — and end up investing in your competitor.
Getting all that information, whether from you, online, or other connections, takes time. It’s not until then that the investor can be confident enough to give you a clear “Yes” or “No.” Until that time, all that you’ll get is “Yeah, maybe!” And in most of those cases, that “Maybe” will lead to a “No, not this time.”
To be clear, I’m not talking about the investors who say “Maybe” and then you never hear from them again. That subject needs its own article.

Be unfaithful

The solution to this problem is easy, but time consuming. Even if one investor tells you maybe, and seems positive — you need to keep on meeting other investors.
Fundraising is not like dating. Go ahead and be unfaithful. The investor is dating multiple founders in parallel — you should do the same!
It’s not until you have the engagement ring on your finger that you can truly start to settle down. And even if you have a term sheet, you still want to keep your options open. When you’ve signed the shareholder agreement and you’re walking down the aisle, then you’ll wave all other investors goodbye.

2020.09.25 20:35 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 3 - Cincinnati Bengals (0-2) at Philadelphia Eagles(0-2)

Cincinnati Bengals (0-2) at Philadelphia Eagles (0-2)
The Eagles are off to their worst start with a real coach since 2003 (I consider 2013-2015 non-existent) when they also dropped their first two games of the season. The team would like a repeat of that season where following a week 3 bye,the team rebounded to defeat the Bills 23-13. The Eagles ripped off 12 wins in their remaining 14 games following their 0-2 start. Maybe the Eagles will be able to do the same, but they will have to shake the injury bug first. The Eagles will be without first round pick Jalen Raegor this week who underwent surgery on his hand to repair a torn UC ligament in his thumb. The Eagles may also be without Fletcher Cox who is dealing with an oblique injury. The Cox injury should be watched closely if he can’t go, Joe Mixon and Joe Burrow will have a much easier day against the struggling defense. Last week against the Rams, the defense was under prepared and unable to stop anyone. The Rams took advantage of Jim Schwartz’s consistently odd decision to have his CBs, play so far off the line of scrimmage, giving a free release to the WRs and allowing easy short passes. If Schwartz does the same this week, it will be another long day for the Eagles defense and a great fantasy day for Tyler Boyd, who Bengals Joe Burrow connected with 7 times last week including 1 for a TD. On the other side of the ball Doug and Carson will both need to be better than the last two weeks. For Carson, he needs to get out of his own head and play with confidence. For Doug, he needs to find some creativity and help his 5th year QB. He would do well to get Carson moving and utilize the RBs more in the flat and screen game. However, if we see more of the same we saw in weeks 1 and 2 from the Eagles coaching staff, we should expect another loss. Hopefully that is not the case and Carson and the coaches can learn from their mistakes in weeks 1-2 and pull our a win this week. Go Birds!

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - The Eagles' struggles continued in their home opener against the Los Angeles Rams. An early fumble by Miles Sanders led to a Rams touchdown by Tyler Higbee. After the Eagles cut their deficit to four with a Jake Elliott field goal, Los Angeles responded with a Robert Woods touchdown run followed by a second Higbee touchdown catch. Trailing 21-3, the Eagles closed the deficit to five points by halftime with touchdown runs by Wentz and Sanders. After forcing a three-and-out on the Rams' first possession of the second half, the Eagles would drive to the Los Angeles 21, only for Wentz's first down pass to be picked off by Darious Williams, turning the momentum back in the Rams' favor as they would outscore the Eagles 16-3 the rest of the way. Despite not being sacked once during the game, Wentz finished the day with a 56.5 passer rating, completing 26 of 43 passes for 242 yards and two interceptions. The 37-19 blowout loss dropped Philadelphia to 0-2 for the first time since the 2015 season, and marked the Eagles' first home opener loss since that same season. It was also the first home loss to the Rams franchise since the opener of the 2001 season.
Bengals - After losing their regular season-opening game at home, the Bengals then traveled to Cleveland to face the Browns for Battle of Ohio Round 1. In the first quarter, the Bengals scored first when Randy Bullock kicked a 38-yard field goal to make it 3-0. Though, the Browns took the lead when Nick Chubb ran for an 11-yard TD to make it 7-3. In the second quarter, the Browns went up by double digits when Baker Mayfield found O'dell Beckham Jr. on a 43-yard TD pass to make it 14-3. The Bengals then came within 4 after Joe Burrow found C.J. Uzomah on a 23-yard TD pass to make it 14-10. Mayfield then found Kareem Hunt on a 6-yard TD pass to put the Browns up by double digits, 21-10. The Bengals closed out the half when Randy Bullock kicked a 43-yard field goal to make it 21-13 at halftime. In the third quarter, the Browns went back up by double digits when Chubb ran for a 1-yard TD to make it 28-13. The Bengals drew closer with Bullock's 27-yard field goal to make it 28-16. In the fourth quarter, the Bengals were able to get within 5 when Burrow found Mike Thomas on a 4-yard TD pass to make the score 28-23. Though, the Browns would go back up by double digits yet again when Hunt punched the ball in for a 1-yard TD to make it 35-23. The Bengals wrapped up the scoring when Burrow found Tyler Boyd on a 9-yard TD pass to make the final score 35-30.

Stats to Know
QB Adjusted Completion %
What’s one thing rookie Joe Burrow and 5th-year Carson Wentz have in common? They have not been terribly accurate so far. PFF has an Adjusted Completion % stat that accounts for clear drops, spikes, throw aways, batted passes, and throws made while getting hit. Burrow and Wentz are near the bottom in AC%, with 70.4 and 70.3, respectively. Interesting to note a bit of the distribution within the array of aforementioned stats: while Burrow has had one of the lower rates of on-target passes dropped by the receiver (4.1%), Wentz doubled that at 8.4%, good for 5th-highest. Yes, Wentz has stunk, but...
Matchups to Watch
Rookie versus Veteran, Which QB Has Poise Down 0-2?
With two consecutive weeks of porous defense from both the Eagles and Bengals defensive units, this Sunday's matchup should rest squarely on the shoulders of each offensive unit. Will the Eagles be able to rely on fifth year starter Wentz? Will he be able to shake off two tumultuous weeks and put together a consistent offensive performance? Will the Bengals weapons coalesce around their rookie Burrow? Will he be able to put together his first complete NFL game and demonstrate that this season is the turning point for the franchise? A big piece of Wentz stabilizing his game time performance will be continuing his focus on short-time-to-throw plays. From Week 1 with 8 sacks versus the Washington Football Team to Week 2 and zero sacks versus the Rams with the vaunted Aaron Donald, the Eagles Offensive Line and Wentz’ pocket choices resulted in less lost yards and broken plays. Unfortunately, key turnovers again forced short-yardage scoring situations and massive tempo swings. Wentz needs to take advantage of the cleaner pocket that will likely be available versus the Bengals (2 sacks on the year so far) and finish drives cleanly to put the game away. Without rookie WR Jalen Reagor (placed on IR with a thumb injury after Week 2), Wentz will have to make use of the remainder of his threats, including veteran DeSean Jackson who had 6 catches on 9 targets for 64 yards against the superior Rams’ defensive backfield. Joe Burrow has had the classic introductory NFL QB experience. A high-flying game versus the Browns last week, with 300+ yards passing, 3TDs and zero ints was fantastic bounce back from Week 1 versus the Chargers. 193 yards, 0 TDs, and an int will not win the game for the Bengals versus the Eagles, even if Wentz struggles. A key focus for Burrow will be settling into the routine and relationships he’s formed with his offensive weapons. AJ Green remains one of the best WR threats in the NFL and his slow start to the season (8 catches for 80 yards) could end at any time, in any game with a QB like Burrow. Burrow threw a nearly record setting number of passes during the almost-come-from-behind loss versus the Browns; if the Bengals are able to establish their run-game and abuse the Philadelphia secondary in a similar way to the Rams offensive scheme, then Burrow could have a very big day. If he is forced to drop back 60+ times, and Joe Mixon is again held under 75 yards on the ground, the Bengals and Burrow may have a hard time. Keep an eye on how comfortable each QB is feeling, and whether they can establish good tempo. That will be key to offensive production this weekend.
Coaching Conundrum; Pederson versus Taylor
At the core of the NFL these days is the combat between offensive and defensive schemes. Both coaches come from a background of coaching QB play and offensive schemes, though from different eras and coaching trees. How they go about using that experience to enable their teams to a secure a necessary win this week will make or break their seasons. Doug Pederson, at the helm of a revamped offensive coaching tree with the addition of Quarterbacks Coach Press Taylor as Passing Game Coordinator, has had a rough three year stretch of offensive stumbles. Since the miraculous Super Bowl 52 season (2017), the Eagles have consistently failed to be productive, with a lot of the challenges relating to lack of roster depth and poor player improvement through misaligned coaching. This is the third consecutive year of stuttering offense to begin the season and a big piece of the matchup versus the Bengals will be how well the Eagles can settle in. Coach Pederson has made it clear that the lack of full-speed off-season practice plays a big role in the Eagle’s struggles so far; so it remains to be seen when and if both units can make use of this gametime practice to solidify the small flashes of prior success we’ve seen. Opposite Pederson is Coach Taylor, in his second year of a complete rebuild, now with the (ideally career-long) franchise WB in Burrow. Hailing from the Shanahan line, through the LA Rams McVay, Taylor was brought into Cincinnati to recreate the organization’s coaching structure and form a new core for the team around veteran WR AJ Green. The 2019 season showed marked improvement throughout, particularly in run production and passer protection; the addition of Covid-related practice limitations have also taken their toll on the Bengals’ preparations for this season, as exemplified by the Week 1 drubbing by the Ravens. Taylor returns this season with second-year offensive coordinator Brian Callahan, formerly the QB coach for the Raiders. The cerebral talent in the Bengals organization is clearly arrayed around giving Burrow the best possible chance to shine; and they may just do so against an extremely poorly performing Eagles defense. Being able to establish consistent offensive strength and consistency throughout this season will be a key part of whether this new coaching structure is able to flourish in Cincinnati or if yet more change is needed to remake the franchise. During game day, keep an eye out on how these coaches make use of their star players, now that the very early season yips and stumbles should be behind them. Whoever can appropriately adjust to the flow of the game and take advantage of the others mistakes will win this football game.
The Big Punt: How Special Teams Makes An Impact
Kevin versus Cameron, Huber versus Johnston, two players that may very well decide the nature of this Bengals versus Eagles matchup. These titans of the turf, two punters to rule them all, and two punters to pin them deep; two punters waiting on call, and two punters to make fans weep. In lieu of offensive production, and in hopes of good defensive play, Kevin Huber and Cameron Johnston bring their punting prowess to Lincoln Financial Field this Sunday. Hailing from opposite sides of the Earth, Huber from Cincinnati itself, and Johnston from Geelong Australia, these two are some of the most capable foot-based deliverers of the football to opposing teams. Huber holds nearly all of the Bengals franchise records in punting statistics; and Johnston holds the highest gross and net punting averages in a single Eagles season. The third year Australian punter is known by Eagles fans for his insanely long hang-time and penchant for pinning the NY Giants inside the 20 (20+ times in four games). Huber is loved by the Bengals fanbase as both their longest tenured player and his consistency over the past 13 years. He has missed just 2 of 180 possible games, and has been perennially top 10 at his position. Both players are in the final year of their contracts, so effective performance is a must for maximum salary gains. Keep an eye out on how effective these two are in establishing and keeping good field position. If both teams are struggling for consistency, these swings may be the key to a late drive that puts the game away. Additionally, with every punt comes the magic of a muffed punt return. If you’re a particular connoisseur of special teams play, watch and see if these punters add any special spin or location to their strikes; and key turnover last week in this position kept the Eagles hopeful. Maybe lightning will strike twice for the Eagles Special Teams and the Wizard with the Large Leg, Cam Johnston; maybe the Bengals gunners will scoop up a muff and Huber will be huger than expected. Stay tuned!

  2. Squad building and transfer policy at Manchester United - The Glazers and Ed Woodward. Luke Shaw: We need more players
  3. The tactical success of Crystal Palace given they had 24% possession yet a similar number of chances. Potentially also the failings of United in converting possession in to chances.
  4. The future and potential of Zaha given reported interest in him from other clubs.
Match summary
Wilfried Zaha scored twice as Crystal Palace beat Manchester United 3-1 for back-to-back victories at Old Trafford.
Andros Townsend's close-range finish gave Palace the lead after seven minutes and David De Gea twice denied Jordan Ayew as the away side threatened on the counter.
A penalty for handball by Victor Lindelof, awarded after referee Martin Atkinson had reviewed the incident, was converted at the second attempt.
Ayew's spot-kick was saved, but the VAR adjudged De Gea had come off his line too early and the retaken penalty was converted by Zaha on 74 minutes.
Substitute Donny van de Beek poked in six minutes later on his debut to reduce the deficit.
But Zaha's low finish sealed the three points with five minutes remaining to continue Palace's winning start to the season.

2020.09.18 18:22 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 2 - Los Angeles Rams (1-0) at Philadelphia Eagles(0-1)

Los Angeles Rams (1-0) at Philadelphia Eagles (0-1)
The 2020 Philadelphia Eagles season didn’t have the start they were looking for week 1 as they opened the season without their starting LT, RT, RG, RB, DT and WR and struggled against the Washington Football team to open their season with a loss. Luckily they will get two of those starters back this week in running back Miles Sanders and RT Lane Johnson. Both will be welcome additions as the Eagles struggled to block anyone against the Football Team both on the line and from the running back position. Additionally, getting a running game going will greatly help slow the pass rush which will be impressive as the Rams posted one of the best pressure rates last week led by All-Pro Aaron Donald. Hopefully Doug Pederson learns from his mistakes of last week and gets Carson moving with some designed rollouts and mixes up his play-calling more to establish the run. If Doug tries to do the same thing as last week it will be a long day for Carson and Donald will feast. On the other side of the ball, Schwartz had Slay follow McLaurin last week and it worked as Slay shut McLaurin down, but that is more difficult this week as the Rams have two talented receivers in Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp. The Eagles will need to see how Maddox holds up on the outside with a bigger challenge this week. With the struggles of the Eagles offense and their injuries on that side of the ball, the Eagles will need their defenses to limit the quick scoring Rams offense or it will be a long day. Should be a good test for the Eagles to rebound after falling flat out of the gate last week. Go Birds!

Eagles 30 - Rams 23
Nick Foles filled in for the injured Carson Wentz, taking up his spot under center after three months without game action. Foles promptly recaptured the magic, passing for 270 yards and confidently leading the Eagles to a 30-23 win over the Rams on Sunday night with plenty of help from his defense and his playmakers. Foles got plenty of help from his running game as Wendell Smallwood rushed for two touchdowns and rookie Josh Adams ran for another score as the Eagles (7-7) kept their playoff hopes quite viable with a gritty victory over the Rams (11-3), who lost consecutive regular-season games for the first time in coach Sean McVay's tenure.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - In a near-reversal of the previous season's opener, the Eagles scored the first 17 points, only for the Washington Football Team to then shut their offense out for the remainder of the afternoon. Meanwhile, Washington's offense scored 27 unanswered points, and the defense sacked Carson Wentz eight times, recorded two interceptions, and forced three fumbles. With the loss, Philadelphia's six-game winning streak against Washington was snapped dating back to Week 14 of the 2016 season, and the Eagles lost the first game of the season since 2015.
Rams - Playing their first game ever in their brand-new home at SoFi Stadium, the Rams held off the Cowboys in a close battle of NFC contenders. Receiving the opening kickoff (from former Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein), Los Angeles drove 75 yards in seven plays, with Malcolm Brown scoring the new stadium's first touchdown on a 1-yard run. Rookie kicker Samuel Sloman missed on his first field goal attempt, a 29-yard try that bounced off the left upright near the end of the first quarter, but later was successful on field goals of 35 and 31 yards in the second quarter. However, Dallas took a 14-13 halftime lead as Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott scored on both a touchdown run and a touchdown reception. The Rams reclaimed the lead as Malcolm Brown (who finished with a team-high 18 rushes for 79 yards) scored his second touchdown of the game on a 2-yard run midway through the third quarter to put Los Angeles ahead 20-14. Zuerlein converted a 33-yard field goal late in the third quarter, but it would be as close as the Cowboys would get. Rookie safety Jordan Fuller led the Rams with eight total tackles, including a key tackle of Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb on a fourth-and-3 play at the Rams' 9-yard line, just one yard short of a first down to kill a Dallas scoring drive.

Philadelphia has produced a 22-19-1 (.536) record in the all-time series vs. Los Angeles. The Eagles own a 6-game winning streak against the Rams, scoring 30+ points in 5 straight contests.
Philadelphia is 15-8 (.652) in home games vs. Los Angeles, with victories in each of the last 2 such meetings (last: W, 34-28 on 10/5/14 at Lincoln Financial Field).
The Eagles are 23-9 (.719) at home in the regular season under head coach Doug Pederson, which marks the 5th-best home winning percentage in the NFL since 2016, trailing only New En-gland (.818, 27-6), Baltimore (.758, 25-8), Kansas City (.758, 25-8) and New Orleans (.727, 24-9).
Philadelphia has captured all 4 of its home openers with Doug Pederson at the helm (since 2016). Pederson is one of only two head coaches in Eagles history to win each of their first 4 home openers with the team, joining Joe Kuharich (1964-67).
In Week 1 at Washington, Philadelphia allowed only 239 total yards (80 rushing, 5th; 159 passing, 3rd), which were the fewest by any defense in the NFL during kickoff weekend. The Eagles limited Washington to just 27.8% (5-of-18) on third downs, which was also the 5th-best mark in the league.

Stats to Know
Pressure Rate
It doesn’t take advanced stats to know that Wentz spent most of Sunday under significant pressure. Washington sacked him eight times behind a makeshift offensive line that struggled to contain the Football Team’s pass rush. The Eagles allowed a 34% pressure rate Sunday, according to ESPN Next Gen Stats. That was the third-worst in the NFL. Five different Washington players generated at least four pressures. And it doesn’t get any easier against the Rams. The Cowboys allowed a 40.5% pressure rate Sunday night in their loss to the Rams, which was the second-worst mark of Week 1. And a big reason for that was Rams star Aaron Donald. Donald — the six-time Pro Bowler, five-time All-Pro and two-time AP Defensive Player of the Year who has 44 sacks over the past three seasons — posted a 28.6% pressure rate on Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott himself. He pressured Prescott 10 times for 35 pass rushes and finished with four tackles, one sack, one tackle for loss and four quarterback hits. According to Next Gen Stats, Donald’s pressure rate over the past three seasons is 13.5%, 13.9% and 14.6%. The Eagles offensive line is going to have to be ready or it is going to be another long Sunday for Carson Wentz.
Matchups to Watch
Carson Wentz vs. Himself
I note this matchup not to downplay the Rams and what they bring to the table, but to note that Wentz had plenty of mistakes that ultimately cost us the week 1 matchup. Change nothing of the game last week, bad OL, questionable scheming especially in the second half, Carson Wentz playing better wins us the game. Things were bad around him and he actively made them worse at times. These two things can be true: Wentz cost us the week 1 game and he should bounce back because he is a really good QB. This isn't the sky is falling, #TankForTrevor blurb, it's simply acknowledging the biggest change from week 1 to week 2 that would aid in a victory - Carson Wentz returning to form. There was also a lot of good last week, namely the first half! Check out the first TD throw to Ertz. Short, compressed field where he needs to make a snap decision and he comes off his first read (JJAW) and hits Ertz for 6. This is a great play by Wentz where he showed how good he is capping off a great drive. We need more of this consistency. Wentz was even missing on staples of the offense. He was erratic in the pocket and regularly off target. I love hero ball, I hate when QBs play scared, but better urgency and avoiding negative plays in the pocket would go a long way in smoothing out the rough edges of his game. It's infuriating to have some of the same issues he had in year 3 continue in year 5. Regardless, Wentz is a really good QB, so he should be expected to bounce back from a bad game every QB has once in a while. It just needs to happen quickly so the Eagles don't fall behind in the young season. This Rams secondary has a phenomenal CB in Jalen Ramsey and a really good young safety in John Johnson III; they aren't slouches. Wentz needs to be better and it would be surprising if he isn't.
Eagles (downright) Offensive Line vs. Aaron Donald and the Rams Pass Rush
Washington may have a better, deeper defensive line but they don't have Aaron Donald. He is so good he lifts a pass rush up to the top tiers of the league on his own given his dominance and versatility. Donald isn't just a Defensive Tackle; he'll line up inside and outside while wrecking every part of the OL he can along the way. Just look at what Baldy has in his review for him this week. This is a problematic matchup for Philly given their patchwork offensive line. Even though there were positive things some of the new guys did, they made a lot of mistakes, and will continue to do so in their young careers. The last time the Eagles played the Rams in 2018, Philly held Donald to 2 total pressures in probably his most ineffective game during the course of his DPOY season. The difference between that Eagles OL and this one is the health. Philly won't have a healthy Brandon Brooks; while they'll have Lane Johnson again it'll be in his first start of the season, he's coming off a late summer ankle procedure. So his effectiveness is still TBD. JP, who also played in that game, has also declined a considerable amount since then. One player returning to the field Sunday that should also give the Eagles a boost in pass protection is Miles Sanders. Not only is Sanders the best runner on the team, he's also the best pass blocking running back on the team. This alone won't stop Donald, but it should help. This defensive front from the Rams can get pushed around in the run game (more on that later) but can absolutely get after it in the pass rush department. Dallas doesn't have the line it used to either and Dak was under pressure at a roughly 42% rate, among the worst in week 1. The return of Lane Johnson should increase the effectiveness of this OL a considerable amount but given the new parts there will still be an adjustment period. This unit needs to come together quickly and the coaching staff needs to actually focus their game plan on helping their OL much more so than they did in week 1. Otherwise, expect Donald and his homies to bring the pain up front.
Eagles Pass Rush vs Rams OL
Even with some of the sustained injuries on this roster, the Eagles still have a formidable pass rush and flashed it quite a bit in week 1. The box score stats are highly deceiving in this area as Washington shifted their game plan quite a bit as the game went along. Philly pressured Haskins at a 30% clip last week. That number isn't great considering the state of Washington's offensive line. However, Haskins had the quickest time to throw in the NFL in week 1 with an average time to throw of 2.13 seconds. It's extremely difficult to pressure QBs when they get the ball out that quickly. Last week, Jared Goff was 8th in the NFL in this category, which will present some challenges for the Eagles. Dallas pressured Goff at a 20% clip last week, which is a horrendous number. Goff is a good QB and will slice you up if you don't get to him. But when you do, oftentimes he's effectively standing in quick sand as he was a bottom 8 QB under pressure (by Rating) in 2019. It's imperative this defensive front plays well this week. We already saw Malik Jackson return to form, now we need Fletcher Cox. Philly should get Brandon Graham (concussion) and Derek Barnett (hammy) back this week which should increase the effectiveness of the pass rush. Josh Sweat has also shown tremendous growth in year 3 having the best game of his career this past Sunday with TY McGill flashing in limited snaps. This offensive line from the Rams underwent a mini make-over this offseason but still has some question marks up front. This will be a real test for them as the Eagles pass rush is much more formidable than the one Dallas offers. Furthermore, this is a defensive staff that has consistently gotten to Goff of late. Given the changes on both squads, this is a good measuring stick game in the trenches.
Eagles Coverage vs Rams Receivers
Jim Schwartz had Sean McVay's number in their most recent matchup in 2018 so I am curious to see who gets the upper hand this time around. The Rams have a really good WR room with Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson, and Josh Reynolds. They also have a good tight end in Tyler Higbee. Philly has their work cut out for them this week as the Rams are much deeper than Washington. The Rams passing attack was predicated on the short, quick game with a lot of motions and play action last week. Carson Wentz led the NFL in Average Intended Air Yards while Jared Goff was last. Goff's Average Intended Air Yards were 4.3 per attempt with roughly half his passing attempts coming within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage. Getting the ball to Goff's first read and out of his hands quickly is key as he can be an adventure when he is forced to hold onto the ball. McVay is really good at disguising what the Rams will do running multiple plays out of similar looks. Lastly, their receivers are great at getting quick separation and great getting yards after the catch. The defensive game plan for Philly in the secondary should look quite different this week than it did last week. There isn't one receiver the Eagles can key on for Slay to take away. I'd bet Schwartz moves him around quite a bit but with Woods as the primary recipient of special attention. Slay looked every bit as good as you'd expect last week and that's a huge addition to this secondary. One area of concern I have for Philly is the middle of the defense. This Eagles LB group is among the worst in the NFL in coverage; McVay is going to look to attack that relentlessly all game long. He did the same thing to Dallas last week. It was encouraging to see Rodney McLeod bounce back after a poor 2019 as he was every bit as spry as he once was. The rest of the middle of this defense leaves a lot to be desired. Either way, this is a deeper Rams receiving room, with a creative play-caller, and a better passer than the Eagles just faced. There was a lot of good to take from the defensive performance last week but they face a significant test Sunday in the Rams.

Education Minister Harutyunyan files lawsuit over "defamatory fake news"

As part of the 2019-ongoing political campaign against Education Minister Harutyunyan, several "traditionalist" opposition figures circulated rumors that the Ministry plans to use խուժան school books containing questionable and expletive content for "sexual education".
The Ministry said the circulated book was unrelated to the upcoming education reforms, and that they have no such plans. That didn't stop BHK leader Tsarukyan from claiming "look at how Ministry is brainwashing our kids with perverted sexual stuff" during his recent speech to supporters.
 
Today the Education Minister Harutyunyan decided to file a defamation lawsuit against those who claimed he was distributing those books. "The financial compensation will be used to buy furniture for one of the kindergartens."
https://armtimes.com/hy/article/195849

ARF holds protests against Minister

ARF resumed the 2019 rallies against Harutyunyan. He is accused of harming traditional values, language, church, poor management, etc.
https://factor.am/283965.html

the protests reach Parliament

LHK party took the protest to Parliament building by hanging an anti-Harutyunyan poster on the main floor, after receiving permission from Speaker Mirzoyan. LHK joins ARF and BHK with the demand for Harutyunyan's resignation.
Ruling QP MPs trolled the poster by taking a photo with it because it contains the ruling party's "make a step" slogan.

Education Minister Harutyunyan fires back at critics / Discusses reforms

Minister Harutyunyan: // there are big reforms on the horizon, so certain political circles are concerned that the introduction of critical thinking in schools will take away their future "voter base".
Some "experts" who incorrectly characterized the history book reforms as "anti-Armenian" used to be fed by the former regime to write falsified materials that appeased the former regime. They've been cut off from the funding, so now they're upset. We involved many teachers and real experts during the development of the new curriculum.
 
the resignation calls
I won't meet activists whose only demand is my resignation. If there was a reason for my resignation I would do it in an instant. No such topic has been brought up during party talks.
I met the students who faced difficulties with new university admission rules, but unfortunately, some of them were influenced by political circles and had different motives behind complaints. I won't meet that specific group.
 
ruling MP's resignation
I haven't had discussions with [recently resigned QP MP and wrestler] Julfalakyan in months. [He resigned after having sports-related differences, allegedly with deputy Minister. Education Ministry includes Sports Ministry]. Julfalakyan could have used his right to raise a topic but we held 0 conversations.
 
the boxes
ARF gave me boxes so I could pack my personal items and leave. I could use those boxes to stuff them with materials about past corruption and send it back to ARF. [ARF responded saying the Minister only remembers about corruption when he's criticized.]
 
tuition aid?
We're currently discussing a possible COVID-related tuition subsidy for university students. We received a letter signed by 5,000 students yesterday. There might be a meeting with them soon.
 
teachers
So far we mass-tested 6,000 teachers before the school season. Only 1% had COVID. There will be unannounced visits to schools to make sure safety rules are respected.
 
school management
Schools will be governed differently after reforms. Multiple schools will be included in one network governed by one board. The number of board members will reduce so thousands of people won't have to travel for a board meeting. Board members will be retrained. They won't be under influence of certain groups as it was done in the past.
 
meddling in others' affairs
The opposition accuses us of pressuring others. Let me tell you a story. LHK MP1 calls and tells me to support a certain library director against protesters, while LHK MP2 later calls and says it's the protesters who are correct, and I should punish the library director.
Look up how many of my preferred candidates won seats in govt-funded organizations, in which the boards - mind you - were formed by our rules... not many did. For you it's a weakness, for me it's a strength.
 
science & unis
The reforms will allow better cooperation between universities and research institutes, independent activities for scientific organizations, creation of scientific consortia, postgraduate programs will be brought in line with European standards.
 
teacher shortage
Teachers who move to border or mountainous areas, where there is a shortage of tutors, will receive a 30% raise and other benefits.
 
more schools
We opened 60 new preschools as part of a plan to enroll 70% of 3-6yo kids by 2023.
37 new small schools will be built by 2021. We spent an unprecedented $4m in 2020. //

Minister Harutyunyan goes full savage in Parliament / Tsarukyan & church rape

There was a Q&A in Parliament during which opposition BHK MPs accused Education Minister Harutyunyan of incompetence and damaging Armenian values and failed reforms.
At one point, Harutyunyan fired back by saying the new curriculum will help certain groups [BHK folks] better control their hormones and respect the church, so they won't rape women in church premises anymore.
Context: during USSR, the BHK leader Tsarukyan and his friends were convicted of raping a Russian tourist in an abandoned church. President Kocharyan's judge would later overturn the verdict after Tsarukyan became a business partner with the Kocharyan family.
 
BHK accused the Minister of inappropriate language because he referred to Tsarukyan and his friends as "a group of Kotayk residents with hormones". They said it was offensive because it targeted the entire Kotayk population.
The Minister responded saying it was directed towards a specific group and nothing to do with Kotayk as a whole.
 
Minister Harutyunyan displayed a 1998 խուժան book and accused opposition BHK of lying about him trying to introduce that book into the curriculum. "A complete lie, dear parents. Be vigilant and don't let them manipulate you. The reforms will benefit your children."
https://armtimes.com/hy/article/195901

Pashinyan talks about Constitutional Court judges

"The Constitutional Court crisis is over", said Pashinyan in Parliament, a day after Parliament nominated 3 new judges. He criticized some groups for wanting to appoint [pro-governemnt or anti-Roboserj] partisan judges.
Pashinyan: // Some groups are upset because they wanted to see their folks in the court. Now they teach us about the revolution's values and how the new judges don't meet those values, as if we don't know what the values are. It's not a perfect court. The govt did its duties. //
Some of the aforementioned anti-Roboserj activists later complained about his harsh tone and told him to calm down.
 
Context: The 3 seats were vacated after a bill was passed that fired the judges who served terms longer than what the Constitution envisioned for new judges. This was a "compromise" solution by the government because it didn't remove all of the former regime's judges, and even kept HHK MP Tovmasyan in court.

Russia will allow migrant drivers to use original licenses

Armenia had earlier asked Russia to allow migrants from EAEU member-states to use their home country licenses for driving jobs. Russia has agreed. They'll amend their law to make the exception.
Earlier, the only exception was if the driver came from a country where Russian was an official language. When the bill passes, the "EAEU" will become the second qualifier.

massive rise in sheep exports

Pashinyan: we exported +256% sheep in 1H. 41,000 small-sized cattle worth $3.4m. This is a direct result of our earlier programs. I continue to be convinced that cattle is one of our agricultural industry's most prospective branches. It's a great way to defeat poverty. Farmers should take advantage of govt subsidies by joining cooperatives.
https://armtimes.com/hy/article/195853

Artsakh will also develop its cattle industry

President Arayik: we'll soon import and distribute 10,000 Adilbay and Kalmikian sheep to our farmers. Experts say we can breed 500,000 sheep.
For comparison, today we have 70,000 less productive ones. The growth numbers cited by Pashinyan shows that we have a potential in Artsakh, too.
For the next 5 years, the govt will import and give the female sheep to farmers.

Ozone layer is recovering

Ozone can be damaged by certain chemicals. The international community has taken steps to replace 99% of them. It'll take 100 years for the negative effects to fully disappear.
It's recovering, though. Armenian scientists have been using a special device to track the ozone layer for 21 years. They recorded the past decade's best result in 2019.

Yolyan blood center ex-director charged w/embezzlement

Yolyan center's former director colluded with his secretaries to embezzle a portion of salary bonuses, worth $56,000, that was meant to be paid to employees between 2001-2018, according to authorities.
A felony case is launched. https://armtimes.com/hy/article/195872

Yolyan blood center's new director

Samvel Danielyan replaced the aforementioned Yolyan director in 2018. He has been laid off.
Due to his retirement age, the law prohibits the renewal of his contract as a director, explained Healthcare Ministry.
Nonetheless, several doctors want him to stay. Child cancer clinic director Gevorg Tamamyan and his colleagues also decided to quit unless the Yolyan director stays. They sent a letter to Pashinyan to intervene.
"We aren't sure if the law prohibits renewal of his contract, but even if it does, the govt should do everything possible to find solutions to preserve experts like him."

COVID vs tourism

An expert says Armenia lost $700m from tourism drop during the pandemic. That's ~800,000 tourists who could have spent ~$800 each.

Pashinyan about COVID tickets

"The $20 tickets won't be refunded. The collected funds will be used towards healthcare and subsidies," said the PM.
The opposition is against penalizing those who violate the mask requirement and they want the past tickets refunded.

Pashinyan about COVID handling

Laureates of Hrant Dink Prize

Istanbul's Armenian Agos newspaper writer Hrant Dink would be 66yo on September 15th. He was gunned down for his views and ethnicity in 2007.
Every year Agos gives a prize named after Dink to prominent figures. This year's first winner is Osman Kavala, an activist friendly with Kurds and Armenians, who was arrested with propped up "coup" charges by the Erdogan regime, after being charged with organizing "riots" earlier. Europe has urged Erdogan to release him.
 
The second laureate is female rights activist Egyptian Mozn Hasan.
 
Popular singer Arto Tunjboyajyan performed for the audience during the online ceremony, joined by Dink's widow who sang the late journalist's favorite song "Yes byulbyul em".

the cattle cave to become a tourist spot

A local businessman from Alaverdi, Lori launched a cave-restaurant (not cafe-restaurant... stupid aurocorrect) called "Mendz Er" last month.
The cave used to be a barn full of crap. He began cleaning it up in 2000. Initially, he wanted to turn it into a craftsmanship center but later decided to mix arts with a restaurant.
The cave will soon have a gallery and already has art pieces dating back to the 9th century.

2020.09.11 17:32 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 1 - Philadelphia Eagles(0-0) at Washington Football Team (0-0)

Philadelphia Eagles (0-0) at the Washington Football Team
The 2020 Philadelphia Eagles season is the franchise's 88th season in the National Football League and the fifth under head coach Doug Pederson. The Eagles will try to improve on their 9–7 record from 2019 where they made the playoffs, but lost in the NFC Divisional game against the Seattle Seahawks. They will begin that journey Sunday afternoon as they take a trip down 95 to face off against the division rival with a new name Washington Football Team. To go with the name they also have a new coach in Ron Rivera who is looking for a fresh start after spending the last nine years as the Head Coach of the Carolina Panthers. Rivera inherits a defense that has 4 first round picks on the defensive line that will be facing off against an injury riddled offensive line of the Eagles as they will be without starting LT Andre Dillard and starting All-Pro RG Brandon Brooks. The Eagles bought back former LT Jason Peters who will look to protect Carson Wentz’s blind side. IF the Eagles OL is able to give Wentz time, he proved last year against the WTF that he has great chemistry with Jackson who has torched his former team in the past. Defensively Eagles fans will get their first look at their revamped secondary which will include Pro Bowler Darius Slay and Jalen Mills at safety. They will look to keep Terry McLaurin under control as he burnt the Eagles secondary in both games last season with long TDs. If the Eagles can get a lead early, I think their defense should be able to keep Dwayne Haskins under control and force the second year QB into some turnovers. Always fun to start the season vs a division rival and happy to have some football again in these crazy times. Go Birds!

Eagles 37 - Washington Football Team 27
The Eagles looked to keep their playoff hopes alive and and opened up the scoring with a Jake Elliot FG in the first quarter. The lead was short lived as Dwayne Haskins hooked up with Terry McLaurin for a 75 yard touchdown pass. The Eagles went into half-time trailing 10-14, but took back the lead in the 3rd quarter on a Miles Sanders TD reception that put the Eagles up 17-14. The Eagles and Washington Football Team traded TD passes in the 4th quarter before the Washington Football Team regained the league with a pair of Dustin Hopkins FGs put the Washington Football Team's up 24-27. Carson Wentz answered the call leading the Eagles on a four and half minute 75 yard touchdown drive that culminated in a Greg Ward TD reception. The Eagles defense forced a fumble on the ensuing drive which was returned for a TD by Nigel Bradham for a nail in the coffin putting the Eagles up 10 with no time on the clock to give the Eagles the win.

PFF Stats to Know
Play Action Passing
[Threshold = QBs with at least 20% snap count of the QB with the highest snap count of Play Action for the season] In the 2019-2020 season, no QB had a worse completion rate via Play Action than WFT’s Dwayne Haskins at 54.9% and only 2 others had worse such Passer Rating. For comparison, the Eagles’ Carson Wentz was at the top of the bottom 3rd in both metrics. Whereas has Wentz fared near the top of Play Action % of snaps during his NFL tenure and his completion % and Passer Rating have both ranked near the top in each of ‘16-‘18, in 2019 he did not do well in that respect. How Wentz performs in Play Action with injuries at the OL and WR positions, as well as how much the coaching staff will even ask him to turn his back to this particular DL and keep it...I’m not sure.
Matchups to Watch
Washington Defensive Line vs Eagles Offensive Line
NFL battles always start in the trenches and this is perhaps the biggest advantage the WFT has against the Eagles in this Week 1 tilt. Washington always had a formidable front that lead to intriguing battles between the two teams but the addition of Chase Young and the injuries the Eagles have already sustained make this match up concerning for Philly. The Eagles projected Week 1 starting OL prior to the injuries was, from left to right: Dillard, Seumalo, Kelce, Brooks, and Lane Johnson. Now, the Eagles will start: Peters, Seumalo, Kelce, TBD, TBD. Lane Johnson has practiced everyday this week in a limited capacity which makes me believe that he'll start but it's an uneasy feeling knowing he's working his way back from injury too. The logical guess at RG is Matt Pryor, but they've also tried out Nate Herbig in practice. Either way, the Eagles have a massive downgrade at RG with Brandon Brooks out. Fortunately, the Eagles may have accidentally upgraded in the short term with Jason Peters at LT but the depth in the trenches is already spread too thin. The Eagles are lucky to be as deep as they are on the OL given they aren't totally screwed (yet) but the current state of line makes this a very formidable match up for the Football Team (get a damn team name, jerks) to take advantage of. Additionally, they aren't just deep at EDGE, they are deep at DT as well. Payne, Allen, and Ioannidis are very stout and capable of dominating opposing OLs. Washington's roster is very thin but it isn't on the defensive line. They have more than enough ammunition to put the Eagles in difficult situations. This mismatch will force the coaching staff to be creative in their run designs and how they give help to the OL in pass protection.
Washington Secondary vs Eagles Passing Attack
The Eagles much beleaguered WR room went through a mini-makeover in the offseason and a lot of new, young, and fast faces were added to the mix. What they lack in proven talent, outside of DeSean Jackson's return, they make up for in athleticism. One thing Howie Roseman said this offseason was he was frustrated with the lack of speed on the team. It took him a while to understand that athleticism does matter. It's not just that the new group of receivers are fast, but they all have strong overall athletic profiles. But as previously mentioned, this is an unproven group going up against a very weak opposition. WFT brought back Kendall Fuller this offseason, who was a real good jack-of-all-trades player in the secondary for the Chiefs last season. His status for Sunday is questionable given his limited participation this week in practice. Opposite him is former Eagles favorite Ronald Darby. If I'm Doug Pederson, I make it a point to go after him all day. Even when Darby is at his best, which isn't often these days, he has absolutely zero ball skills. Washington may play Fabian Moreau if Fuller can't go, which is another defender the Eagles should target. Jimmy Moreland and Landon Collins are quality players, more so the latter, but they can't hide the deficiencies that should be easily exploitable by the Eagles. Remember, Philly put up over 30 in week 15 last year with less in the WR room than they currently have against a secondary that really isn't better than it was then. If Jalen Reagor is able to go, that would add another dimension to this offense the Eagles have lacked for a long time. If the Eagles can do a good enough job slowing down Washington's front, they are more than capable of picking apart a subpar secondary. And I didn't even talk about Ertz and Goedert! Or Miles Sanders through the air!
Washington Offensive Line vs Eagles Defensive Line
Despite the current injury limitations on the Eagles defensive line, this is a matchup that heavily favors the Eagles. Haskins finished 2019 on a positive note in his last 3 starts prior to his ankle injury; one thing he's never been known for is his pocket ability and ability to avoid taking sacks. Put a statue behind a bad offensive line and you are going to have issues. Trent Williams is now gone having finally forced his way out and his logical replacement, rookie Shaadiq Charles, isn't likely to play in week 1. Wes Martin, their starting left guard, is a below average player himself. The only player on the Washington Football Team's offensive line that is good is Brandon Scherff. While the Eagles aren't 100% on the defensive line, they are one of the few teams in the NFL with likely more talent and depth on their defensive line than the Washington Football Team's. Barnett has been limited in practice and has missed the last few weeks with another injury and his status is questionable while Hargrave is likely to miss a couple games as well. The Eagles still have Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, the return of Malik Jackson, and a lot more to throw at this beleaguered unit. Additionally, this is a defensive front that is always stingy against the run under Jim Schwartz even when the DL isn't at peak health. There are a lot of matchups to exploit and Schwartz has a lot of options to exploit them. For his faults as a coordinator with secondary scheming, Schwartz is a God at maximizing the talents of his pass rushers. Given the current state of the Washington OL and Haskins own difficulties under pressure, this is a juicy match up for Philly.
Washington Passing Attack vs Eagles Pass Defense
Washington is incredibly thin and young at the skill positions but that isn't the sort of thing that has deterred the Eagles from allowing big plays in the past. This is a secondary, and really a pass defense in general, that went through a major shake up this offseason and for good reason. The Eagles defense was pretty average per DVOA which was encouraging given what they had, but they consistently allowed big play after big play in 2019. Opposing WR1s absolutely shredded Philadelphia last season as they were automatic monsters against an overmatched, elementary secondary. Darius Slay and NRC were added to the mix and should provide immediate help to this unit. Avonte Maddox will start at CB2; while this is an iffy move, the additions of Slay and NRC should allow the Eagles to help him out a bunch. The Eagles finally have players that can play in man coverage and one of the best CBs in the league in shadow coverage. Schwartz has admitted that he will allow Slay to shadow receivers but likely not 100% of the time. This makes sense as it should be a matchup-specific thing... this is that time. Furthermore, allowing Slay to shadow receivers will lead to considerable scheme changes on defense as they can't play the coverages they've played the last four years while shadowing receivers. What does this look like and how quickly does it come together? Terry McLaurin is the only real commodity at receiver for Washington and he's a tremendous talent. Even when he was the only real receiving threat last year, he still tore the Eagles apart. Another major change for the Eagles is in the safety room with the departure of Malcolm Jenkins. The Eagles added Will Parks to the room but he will miss the first 3 weeks due to injury. They also retained Rodney McLeod; this could be a good thing or bad thing depending on which Rodney shows up. If another year away from knee surgery helps, then he'll be fine. But if last year's version shows up then the Eagles have a big problem. Lastly, the Eagles will be starting Jalen Mills at safety. Apparently, the cure for being a bad cornerback is a position switch to safety despite never playing it in the NFL. All that being said, the middle of the defense is slower and more unknown than it has ever been. LB1 is Nate Gerry. LB2 is Duke Riley. Mills is the new Jenkins. Will Parks is out. Does McLeod have enough left in the tank? Offenses are fast and innovative; the Skins lack a lot of talent on offense but their new offensive scheme could lead to some issues in the middle of the Eagles defense. If I'm Washington, I lean heavily on motions and play action to confuse the middle of the Eagles defense. Get guys who struggle to cover to cover your athletic RBs then take plenty of shots to Terry McLaurin. The Eagles are clearly better at CB than they've been in years but have considerable question marks in the Safety and in the LB rooms as it pertains to pass defense. Better CBs should lead to better pass defense overall but there are matchups to take advantage of. Washington might not be the best team to fully exploit these weaknesses, but they could.

2020.09.09 21:06 NFL_Prediction_Bot Predicting Lions Games 2020-21 Season Prologue and Methodology

Hey, everyone! It's your favorite robit ("favorite" in this case being defined as "something you probably didn't remember and/or didn't like"), here to predict the next season of Detroit Lions football!!
Last season, I attempted to predict the outcome of Lions games using 12 different methods, ranging from logical to inane. I had to abandon the article series before the end of the season due to other priorities. In other words, I had wedding planning to do and this just wasn't as important. For the record, the wedding was fantastic, with mistletoe, a hot chocolate buffet, and a dream team jazz quartet of musicians that I greatly respect.
This year, I'm stepping things up a bit. For one thing, I'm up to 18 prediction methods. Beyond that, some of the newcomers stem from questions I was asking last year, such as, "this QB Rating is an ESPN metric...I wonder how it compares to the NFL's own Passer Rating". As such, 16 of the 18 methods are paired off into direct rivalries! We'll still see who the best overall predictors are by the end of the year, but now each of those 16 has a more direct point of comparison as well. The two methods without a rival are Honolulu Blue Kool-Aid and A Literal Coin Flip, which will be up against everybody. And remember, there are two final picks at the end of each article! One for whichever team has the most picks, and one for the team with the most weighted picks, with weights assigned based on the method's performance so far (1 × [# correct predictions / # total predictions]).
I also plan to submit these posts to the subreddit of each game's opponent this year (as subreddit rules allow, anyway). I'd also thought about submitting to /nfl, but they've got a dense rulebook that appears to disallow this sort of content (or perhaps only allow it with prior approval that I do not have). Maybe I'll link to it in the comments of their game threads. Their comment rules are a lot lighter.
Sadly, this year we wave goodbye to Smash Bros Ultimate Mascot Fight. For one thing, I couldn't find a suitable rival for it, nor did it make sense to have it on its own. However, the larger reason is that, while it was a lot of fun to create the mascot Mii fighters, the writeups never came out sounding very interesting. It got a bit dull to just write down the order of stock losses each week, ya dig? To make that method more interesting, it would really deserve a video with accompanying commentary audio track, and I'm just not up for making one prediction method that much more labor-intensive.
Now, finally, let's actually get into the methodology of each pick!

Rivalry A: 'Cause I Ain't No Quartaback Girl

Rivalry Basis: Nobody can deny the impact of a good quarterback. It won’t save a garbage roster, but a strong player under center can elevate a bad team to modest success, and a good team to greatness. On the other hand, a bad quarterback can drag down the entire team, such is the position’s importance.
Prediction Method 1: Higher QB Rating
Why: I could simply decide on my own which quarterback I think is better. That's not subjective enough for this highly scientific and rational exercise, however. Therefore, I will use ESPN's QB Rating as a metric for, well, Rating each teams Quarterback.
How: I’ll be comparing the regular season QB Rating for each team’s starting quarterback, as posted on ESPN's website. I will use the current season rating as of the time of the writeup each week. For Week 1, I will compare QB Ratings from the 2019 regular season. In the unlikely event that both starters share a rating, this method will favor the home team.
Prediction Method 2: Higher Passer Rating
Why: I could simply decide on my own which quarterback I think is better. That's not subjective enough for this highly scientific and rational exercise, however. Therefore, I will use the NFL's Passer Rating as a metric for, well, Rating each teams Passer.
How: Last year's QB Rating predictions have invited a challenger from the greater NFL body itself. I will compare the Passer Rating of each team's starting quarterback, with the higher rating getting the prediction nod. As with the QB Rating, I'll take the Passer Rating as of that point in the season, using the 2019 regular season for Week 1. If each Passer Rating is the same, this method will favor the home team. I will source this data from...ESPN's website? Let's see if ESPN's data availability engineers their own downfall against their NFL rival.

Rivalry B: As, Of Course, Is Tradition

Rivalry Basis: There are some things that we're simply always told "win football games". I've decided to put a couple of these to the test here. Which is better? Are either good? Let's find out!
Prediction Method 3: Better Turnover Differential
Why: We’ve all heard it. “Turnovers win/cost games!” It’s a tired line, but there’s likely some truth to it; I want to see how well it holds water for detecting a winner in advance.
How: I’ll contrast each team’s regular season turnover differential as reported by The Football Database, current to the week of the writeup. The higher differential (that is, more takeaways and fewer giveaways) gets the pick. For Week 1, I will compare turnover differentials from the 2019 regular season. If both teams have the same differential, this method will favor the home team.
Prediction Method 4: Average Points Per Game
Why: Ahh, that good old John Madden crumb of wisdom. What you really want to do is score more points than the other team, and then you'll win your football game. Store dat away for a rainy day.
How: Pretty simple on this one. Average out the points per game of each team up to that point in the season. As is typical, for Week 1 I'll be using the average points per game of the entire 2019 regular season.

Rivalry C: Every Now and Then

Rivalry Basis: What's more important, current quality or true legacy? Wait, why are you waiting for me to tell you? I certainly don't know. That's why I was asking you!
Prediction Method 5: Best 2019 Record
Why: There are circumstances where a good team unexpectedly tanks, or a bad team becomes shockingly good in a short span of time. That isn’t the norm, though. In general, a team performs at least similarly to how they did the previous season.
How: I’ll be putting each team’s record from the 2019 season up against one another. I don't expect this one to swing for Detroit very often - the Lions went 3-12-1. If Detroit is up against another team with the same record, this method will favor the home team.
Prediction Method 6: Best Team History Record
Why: Then again, there's something to be said for legacy. Even in bad droughts of success, there are some teams that are just always expected to have a chance at contending. Could it be that a team's history is able to give an ailing squad the push they need, or help a robust unit keep themselves on track?
How: I'll measure this with each team's regular season win/loss percentage across that team's entire record, including 2020 as it happens. A tied percentage will favor the home team.

Rivalry D: Upper Management vs The Union

Rivalry Basis: Coaches run games, but it's the star players who really turn heads. I'd like to see which ends up proving more important.
Prediction Method 7: More Experienced Coaching Staff
Why: I feel the need to justify this one a little. I could have gone with a coaching win/loss record or something, but I was finding it tricky to reconcile each member of a coaching staff having coached a different number of games. Beyond that, I like this better as a predictor anyway. After all, bad coaches don't stay in their positions for very long, so an experienced staff should also indicate a decent staff, yeah?
How: I'll be adding up the number of years that each member of each coaching staff (head coach, offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator, special teams coordinator) has been in that position in the NFL. Not necessarily with that particular team, but, for example, I'll only be counting Matt Patricia's years as a head coach. I won't consider his position coaching or coordinator history, because "head coach" is the level of responsibility he has for determining game outcomes this season. I don't want to allow the Peter principle to warp any ratings based on that coach having been really good at their previous job. In the event of a tie, the pick goes to the home team.
Prediction Method 8: More NFL Top 100 Players
Why: There are loads of ways to determine which football players are better than others, but if it was easy, we wouldn't still have playground debates about it. In light of that, I'd rather trust the players themselves.
How: Conveniently enough, the NFL's players vote in an offseason poll covering just this subject. Even more conveniently, the poll only includes voting on players who will not be retired for the coming season, so I don't have to worry about some retiring legend who isn't actually relevant for this test bumping people off the bottom of the list that would be relevant. If the count is equal, the home team is favored.

Rivalry E: It's Just A Game

Rivalry Basis: This one was already a rivalry of sorts last year. Which produces better simulations...state of the art physics engines animation sequences, or rudimentary programming from 1991? I'd like to continue this debate this year.
Prediction Method 9: Madden 19 21 Simulation
Why: EA has a massive budget, and they put out a product featuring the full NFL roster. That said, there are several questions raised as to how much effort actually goes into these games (including but not limited to the actual in-game proceedings). For a studio with “Arts” in the name, it is definitely run as a business first, artful developer second. I want to see if their simulations of the teams have any legitimacy.
How: Using Madden 19 with its most up-to-date roster patch available, I will run a CPU-controlled exhibition game featuring Detroit and their opponent. Settings will be adjusted to Simulation mode, with the default 6-minute quarters. Winner earns this pick. A rare tie would favor the home team. I'm using Madden 19 because it's the first Madden game that I'd bought in years, and you're unhinged if you think I'm giving EA any more money until they make a substantial update. Scratch that, Pride of Detroit is simulating the game each week in Madden 21 so I can use that for a more up-to-date simulation basis
Prediction Method 10: Tecmo Super Bowl Simulation
Why: Would you believe that there are people that update the teams and rosters in ROMs of Tecmo Super Bowl every year to keep them current? It’s honestly pretty awesome. I’d like to see how good of a job these 8-bit simulations do with their modern rosters.
How: Last year I used Goji's NFL Tecmo Super Bowl LIV Week 1 (v10, Juiced Plus) for this. Unfortunately, the website that hosted all of this appears to have shut its door in late July of 2020. Its community is a bit scattered at the moment, but I've found Tecmonster's Tecmo Super Bowl among the pieces. I will use this ROM to run a CPU-controlled exhibition game mirroring the week’s matchup. Winner gets the pick. Note that this is Tecmo Super Bowl, not Tecmo Bowl. Tecmo Super Bowl is superior across the board, don’t @ me.

Rivalry F: Going To The Dogs

Prediction Method 11: Fen's Pick
Why: This is our dog, Fenchurch. She is adorable, silly, and incredibly affectionate and loving. She may also have phenomenal cosmic powers, given to her by the universe as a reward for existing as such a pure being. These powers may or may not include psychic divinations of the future.
How: Before each game, I will set out two treats (broken in half because the little turd is too impatient to chew her food). Each will be the same flavor, and placed in front of a note card with the name of a competing team written on it. The away team will go on the left, the home team on the right. Fen will be held a short distance away, equidistant from each treat, with both of them directly in her field of vision. Whichever treat Fen decides to eat first receives the pick. Then she gets to eat the other treat as well for being the goodest girl and being such a big help.
Prediction Method 12: Elena's Pick
Why: OH GOSH YOU GUYS FEN HAS A SISTER NOW. Elena's favorite thing is the world is Fen. Fen's favorite thing in the world is time away from her incredibly energetic sister Elena. Could Elena annoy Fen even more by usurping her? Or will she defer to her favorite sibling and allow Fen to continue being the psychic pet? Only time (and treats) will tell.
How: Same as with Fen, just with a different doggo. And Elena is simultaneously the goodest girl, and yes they can coexist as such thank-you-very-much.

Rivalry G: This Was A Terrible Idea

Rivalry Basis: Put simply, this is my wife vs my mother. Despite they jokey name of this rivalry, they actually get along great! One of the things they have in common is that they don't follow any of the minutiae of football, so they're on pretty even footing here.
Prediction Method 13: My Wife's Pick
Why: My wife knows a bit about football. More than my mom, certainly; she's even in our fantasy football league. But unless she does some research specifically for these picks (which would be allowed for either her or my mom), her knowledge is mostly rooted in broad-stroke stuff or what she happens to hear me ranting about. She won't typically have insight into which team has an injured receiver or is on a backslide or is really close to taking the lead in their division. So while she's a very real fan, she's a high-level fan who just has fun watching football.
How: I ask her who she thinks is going to win. What did you expect?
Prediction Method 14: My Mother’s Pick
Why: My mom knows next to nothing about football. When we yell at the screen, she just asks which color jersey we’re supporting, and then roots for them too. If she can call these correctly, or at least better than the competing methods, she may be a savant of some kind.
How: In the week leading up to each game, I’m going to call (or text if necessary) my mother and ask who she thinks is going to win. That’s all there is to it.

Rivalry H: Money, Meet Mouth

Rivalry Basis: Time to put my own credibility on the line. We're bumping up my own opinions against those of the experts!
Prediction Method 15: OddsShark Forecast
Why: People take things seriously when there’s money on the line, and nowhere is more money on the line than in Vegas. Institutions that are hosting sports bets want their predicted outcomes to be as good as possible, so that the odds that they give reflect reality as best they can.
How: Rather than trying to shift gears and pick some bookie off of a random list of which I know nothing, I'm going to stay the course from last year. Therefore, I’ll be looking to OddsShark for their anticipated score (and by extension, winner).
Prediction Method 16: My Pick
Why: I want to see how I stack up. Despite my best efforts, I am by all accounts an amateur. I want to try my hand at this fight, and see how well I can hold my own.
How: Before each game, I will simply use my best judgment of all known factors to write my thoughts about the outcome that I expect. I’ll try to be as objective as I can in my assessment, which means I’ll probably just agonize over how it feels like I’ve picked the Lions too often.

Unrivaled Methods

Prediction Method 17: A Literal Coin Flip
Why No Rivalry: Consider this a control. If any other methods fall below an unbiased random guess, then maybe they aren’t worth putting any faith in.
Why: A coin is unbiased, and I certainly don't know how to choose the outcome of a flip. True randomness.
How: I will be using a Highland Mint NFL 100th anniversary Detroit Lions coin. I will flip it, catch it, open my palm, and set it down on the coffee table without turning it. Lions side chooses Detroit, NFL side chooses Detroit's opponent.
Prediction Method 18: Honolulu Blue Kool-Aid
Why No Rivalry: BECAUSE IT'S DETROIT VS EVERYBODY, BABY
Why: FUCK YOU
How: I DON’T GIVE HALF A DAMN WHAT YOU THINK, DETROIT IS THE BEST GODDAMN TEAM IN THE GODDAMN NFL. I’M GOING TO CHOOSE THEM TO WIN EVERY GAME THEY’RE IN BECAUSE YOU’D BE A WEAPONS-GRADE DIPSHIT TO PICK AGAINST THEM. WHO THE FUCK THINKS THEY’RE BEATING US?? BRING YOUR BEST PEOPLE, I DON’T GIVE A SHIT. MATTHEW STAFFORD, KENNY GOLLADAY, AND THE MASTERFUL MATT PRATER. THOSE THREE GUYS COULD TAKE ON YOUR ENTIRE TEAM WITHOUT FLINCHING, AND WE’VE GOT MORE WHERE THAT CAME FROM.
DETROIT WINS. KISS MY DICK.

0' - Olly Murs is on the hunt for celebrities to play in this year's Soccer Aid. Unfortunately all the good ones turn him down so he's left with some Youtubers and the bloke from McFly.
0' - An appearance for Kammy doesn't save the VT, but at least Lee Mack lampshaded the shocking acting. At least we get some classic John Barnes rapping.
0' - It's clear the 19:00 kick off above was optimistic, maybe we'll get around to the football at some point tonight!
0' - I think we're kicking off! We have Clive Tyldesley and Chris Stark on the mic - a legend/celeb lineup even in the commentary box. When will we see a celebrity referee as well?
0' - Someone is doing an "inspirational" speech. I don't know who it is. Possibly Derek Acorah from beyond the grave?
0' - And we're off. The players take the now familiar knee and 8 year old Benjamin gets us underway (before getting off the pitch as quick as possible)
3' - An early free kick for the World XI after Jeremy Lynch is bundled over by John Bishop. Michael Essien to take... but it's high, wide and not too handsome.
6' - Kelly Smith plays a lovely pass to set Danny Jones of McFly through, but he's comfortably tackled by Mikael Silvestre
7' - Chelcee Grimes has the ball out wide in the box, lays it off to Michael Essien but his shot is blocked
8' - Gareth Barry looks like a player who only retired a few weeks ago with some nice tricks and little tidy passes in midfield
14' - We have our first substitution of the game as Chunkz replaces Tom Davis up front
17' - Lianne Sanderson puts through Chelcee Grimes, but Grimes is just a little slow to it and David James tidies up on the second attempt
17' - World XI still have it, and some tidy passing around the box between Sanderson and Dermot Kennedy almost creates a chance but Kennedy can't turn in the box and it's cleared away
19' - The ball is threaded through for England by someone blonde (Murs?) but Locksmith uses his strength to keep Danny Jones from getting on the end of it
20' - Evra feeds Jeremy Lynch in acres of space, but a very poor touch costs him the chance and Wes Brown is in before he can get it back out of his feet
24' - Following a particularly long drinks break, we're back in the action with the scores still 0-0 and a corner for World XI
25' - The ball falls in the box following the corner, the best chance is probably for Lianne Sanderson but all the shots are somehow blocked
28' - Substitution - Yung Filly for Danny Jones
30' - Patrice Evra gets the ball out wide in the box, thinks about crossing but instead puts in a great shot into the bottom corner, but David James is up to the task
31' - Yung Filly chases a long ball from Gareth Barry and gets to it before it runs out of play near the corner flag. Patrice Evra bundles into the back of him and gives a freekick but it goes nowhere
34' - Yung Filly chases a long ball, and from about 35 yards down the pitch he whips in an incredible cross to John Terry (of all people) but he miscues and the ball goes wide for a throw in
36' - Substitution - Lee Mack is coming on for the previously subbed Chunkz to the sound of Chesney Hawkes. Paddy McGuinness replaces John Bishop, and Kem Cetinay for Lianne Sanderson
36' - The latter appears to be a mistake as World XI now only have 1 woman on the pitch, so Serge is replaced by Lianne Sanderson
40' - The game is coming alive and I'm struggling to keep up with the live commentary. Jeremy Lynch makes a decent run but is too slow to beat David James, then Essien curls a shot from distance wide
41' - Gareth Barry leaves one on Lynch as he tries to turn around the halfway line
43' - John Terry is taking this a little more seriously than the rest and goes flying in on K. Cetinay
44' - Grimes gets the ball and tries to play in Lynch, but he loses the flight of the ball and it bounces off his back. Lynch tries to win the ball back but runs it out of play for a goal kick
46' - Sound wonderful skill by Evra, Cetinay feeds him back down the wing and a ball comes in for Lynch around the penalty spot but another move falls apart at Lynch's feet
HALF TIME - 0-0
A huge £5.5m has been raised for charity so far - if you're watching or reading along please donate on the website or (for UK viewers) on the phone numbers above
HT - A Jack White impersonator and a holographic Robbie Williams are singing a terrible halftime song - I have no idea what it happening now
HT - My red wine has ran out so I'm watching the second half without a drink. Oh no
HT - Lots of subs at half time - hopefully they'll announce them soon! Iain Stirling is one, but I don't know who for! Gilligan?
47' - A. Allen's first touch almost gets him in trouble but Robbie Keane's touch puts it wide
54' - GOAL - Lynch beats a man and then plays a simple pass to Robbie Keane, who curls one in off the post. There's little Alfie Allen could do about that.
56' - There's stuff going on and I can't keep up. I think something happened here but I didn't type it and can't remember
56' - Substitution - McGuinness off for Humes and James Bay is on for Mack
57' - A shot is cleared off the line by Chapman. I have no idea who took it, I was trying to work out the subs
58' - GOAL - 1-1 - A ball in to the box puts Yung Filly in the box with more space than outer space. He makes no mistake and slips it past Oduba
59' - Lynch gets one on one with Alfie Allen with no one else around but the celebrity goalkeeper blocks the shot with his feet and keeps it out
62' - Lynch feeds... someone? on the edge of the box, but the shot is blocked by his own player Fleeting
63' Lynch running away from the goal goes to ground under a fairly light touch from Terry and it's a free kick. J. Terry is not happy.
63' - Substitution - Joe Wicks is on for the goal scorer Yung Filly
65' - Substitution - Jason Manford for Kem Cetinay
69' - Substitution - Davide Santon Santan Dave is on, but I have no idea who for - I'm saying Kennedy but I'm guessing at this point
74' - Jason Manford has the ball on the edge of the box, it's taken off him by his team mate Dave but Dave's shot is blocked in the box
75' - Makelele is still the tidy player he was, even as centre back. He brings the ball forward and plays tries to play Lynch through but it's picked out by Humes
75' - Substitution - Dommett for Chapman (I don't think that's allowed!). Manford is subbed for Roman Kemp
76' - I've been reliably informed by CarrowCanary that the second half only needs one woman so it is allowed. Also means that Grimes is off so I have no idea what the teams are
77' - England win a few corners in quick succession but they're cleared and World XI are awarded a free kick to get things clear
82' - James Bay is through in to the box, it looks like he's held back by Iain Stirling but nothing is given. Stirling is a lucky man.
84' - Did Andy Cole just replace Heskey? I think so. Who knows
85' - Patrice Evra makes a wonderful run, but Mark Wright clatters through him winning all of the ball. Lovely stuff!
86' - A tidy cross and Andy Cole will always get on the end of it but he can't direct it on target
88' - Lynch tries twice to beat Humes but the ball bounces messily off his knee and goes out for a goal kick
89' - Manford is still on the pitch. What? I'm very confused now.
90' - Lynch chases down a pass but is too slow and Allen is quickly out of his goal to win the ball nicely
FT - 1-1 - AND IT'S GOING TO PENALTIES!
PENALTIES - So it's celebs vs celebs. No pros involved at this stage
W 1-0 E - Lynch buries it in the top corner
W 1-1 E - Murs scores comfortably
W 1-1 E - Locksmith goes down the middle but hits the crossbar. Advantage England!
W 1-2 E - Mark Wright makes no mistake calmly placing it to his right
W 2-2 E - Serge rolls it into the bottom corner
W 2-2 E - Lee Mack misses for a third year! He tries to go to the bottom right but Oduba reads it and saves well!
W 3-2 E - Dermot Kennedy puts it away nicely
W 3-3 E - James Bay hammers it past Oduba into the top corner. It's sudden death!
W 4-3 E - Cetinay makes no mistake with the pressure on
W 4-3 E - Chunkz puts it wide and World XI take it!

2020.09.05 22:23 Fancy_Ladder Incel Olmak Eksterm Bir Hareket Değildir

Elliot Rodger ve türevi birçok insan var, fakat bu bir üyeyi temsil eder akımı değil. Doğrusunu soracak olursanız her düşüncede bu tarz saçma sapan, yüz kızartıcı, ruh hastası insanlar olur. Fakat incelliğin yapısına baktığımızda aslında doğaya zıt ve beklenmedik birşey görmüyorum.
Bildiğiniz gibi insanın hayatta kalmaktan sonra en güçlü dürtüsü üremektir ve bunu yerine getirmek için var gücüyle çabalar. Böyle bir ortamda rehberlik ederek para kazanmak isteyen ve kendinde dating coach, pua diyen insanların türemesi, üreme isteğinin yerine getirilmesi için farklı teknikleri savunan farklı insanların olması, Xpill, Ypill vb terimle bulunması, kitapların yazılması çok normal.
Belli bir kesimin incelliği ortaya atması da çok normal. Ben kendimin "Incel" olmadığıma karar verdim, lakin bunu yansıtıldığı kadar aptalca yahut kadın düşmanı, tehlikeli bir düşünce olarak görmüyorum.

2020.09.02 12:53 majinmattossj2 Brazilian Big12 series, Episode 8/12: Corinthians

Previous episodes: Flamengo, Vasco, Fluminense, Grêmio, Botafogo, Atlético Mineiro, Internacional
In this series I will present each of the 12 Brazilian teams that together compose the "Big 12". My point is to make them more knowledgeable to you, since each one of these teams have their share of the Brazil national team success and of Brazilian club football accomplishments as a whole. I'll try to be as smooth, efficient and non-boring as I can. If the feedback is positive, I'll keep bringing more to this series. So ok, let's do this!
Method: I'll present the teams in a chronological order, from the oldest foundation (Flamengo-1895) to the latest one (São Paulo-1930). The order will be: Flamengo, Vasco, Fluminense, Grêmio, Botafogo, Atlético Mineiro, Internacional, Corinthians, Santos, Palmeiras, Cruzeiro, São Paulo. How many of these have you heard of?
Extra clubs: Due to a high number of requests, I'll also present 3 teams who don't belong to the Big12, but are also considered big clubs in Brazil: Bahia, Athletico Paranaense and Coritiba. Welcome to the club!
Geographical reference: Before we start, I'd like to ask something very simple from you. I want you to keep in mind that these 12 teams are spread in 4 different States in Brazil. The club's State name is written below, next to the club's name. It has a direct link to Google Maps, so that you can check it out to make this experience more accurate.

The kings of São Paulo and the team of the people (1910-1954)
Corinthians was founded in 1910 by a group of factory workers in São Paulo, inspired by Corinthian FC, an English team that was going on an excursion in Brazil. From the first moment of Corinthians foundation, their president stated that they would be the "team of the people, and that the people would make the team". It was a manifest against the aristocratic trend of only allowing rich and white people into football clubs.
In Brazilian football early days, there wasn't a national league until 1959, so the teams would play inside their own state, in the State Leagues. In this São Paulo State League Era, Corinthians rose from nothing to become the most victorious team inside the state, with 15 titles, notably leaving behind their rivals Palmeiras (12), São Paulo (8), Santos (4), and also traditional teams from the amateur era such as Paulistano (11). If there was a national league in this period, Corinthians would certainly be a serious title contender, along with Fluminense (from Rio de Janeiro state league) and their archrival, Palmeiras.
Highlights to Corinthians early-1950s decade, when they won 2 State Leagues (1951, 1952), 3 Rio-São Paulo Tournament (1950, 1953, 1954) and 1 Pequeña Copa del Mundo in Venezuela (1953).
Tournament Champion Runner-up 3rd place
1950 Rio-São Paulo* Corinthians Vasco Portuguesa
1951 São Paulo State League Corinthians Palmeiras Portuguesa
1952 São Paulo State League Corinthians São Paulo Portuguesa
1953 Rio-São Paulo* Corinthians Vasco São Paulo
1953 Pequeña Copa del Mundo Corinthians Roma (Italy) Barcelona (Spain)
1954 Rio-São Paulo Corinthians Fluminense Palmeiras
Corinthians notably won, undefeated, the 1953 Pequeña Copa del Mundo against Roma (Italy), Barcelona (Spain) and Caracas (Venezuela). Barcelona, of the Hungarian star Kubala, were the current Spanish and Latin Cup champions; Roma, 6th placed in the Serie A; and Caracas, the home guests. Corinthians won their 6 matches, as you can see below. The topscorers were Luizinho (Corinthians) and Kubala (Barcelona) with 5 goals each.
Tournament Match Goals
1953 Pequeña Copa del Mundo Corinthians 1-0 Roma (Italy) Luizinho (1)
1953 Pequeña Copa del Mundo Corinthians 3-2 Barcelona (Spain) Luizinho (2), Kubala (1), Moreno (1), Carbone (1)
1953 Pequeña Copa del Mundo Corinthians 2-1 Caracas (Venezuela) Cláudio (1), Carbone (1), Aguirre (1)
1953 Pequeña Copa del Mundo Corinthians 1-0 Barcelona (Spain) Goiano (1)
1953 Pequeña Copa del Mundo Corinthians 2-0 Caracas (Venezuela) Cláudio (2)
1953 Pequeña Copa del Mundo Corinthians 3-1 Roma (Italy) Luizinho (2), Cláudio (1), Galle (1)
Later in 1958, Corinthians provided the Brazilian National Team with two players in the World Cup title campaign, notably the legendary goalkeeper Gylmar, starter in 1958 and 1962. He played 395 matches for Corinthians, before moving to Santos in 1961.
1954-1977: the drought and the Rivellino Era
In this period, Corinthians went through their longest title drought of their history, without winning a single trophy. Technically, they won the 1966 Rio-São Paulo Tournament, but it had to be shared with 3 other teams due to a lack of dates to end it.
Between 1965 and 1974, Rivellino (born 1946), a creation of Corinthians youth system, was the team's main star. He played 474 matches for Corinthians, scoring 141 goals, and represented his club in the 1970 and 1974 World Cups. He never managed to win the then prestigious State League title, or even the National League, reaching the State League final just once, in 1974, losing to their archrival Palmeiras. He was "found guilty" of losing the final and was released from the club, sold to Fluminense. You can see some of Rivellino magical skills in this amazing skills-only video (3mn08s video).
In this difficult era, Corinthians also counted with legendary star Garrincha in 1966. However, his form was already declining at the age of 32, and he only appeared in 13 matches, scoring 2 goals.
Curiously enough, Pelé played professionaly from 1956 to 1977, almost the exact time Corinthians went trophyless. When Pelé began to shine in football, he used to say that he was rejected in a Corinthians trial in 1954, and therefore cursed that "while I (Pelé) play football, Corinthians will never be champions again". Pelé retired on the 1st of October 1977, and 12 days later, on the 13th October 1977, Corinthians 23-year title drought was over, as they won the 1977 São Paulo State League, 1-0 against Ponte Preta, with a goal from Basilio, at minute 81.
1976: The Corinthians Invasion
A year before Corinthians drought was over, one of the biggest events in the history of Brazilian football took place, the Invasão Corinthiana. The 5th of December 1976, a one-match-only Brazilian League semi-final would happen in Rio de Janeiro, between the home guests Fluminense (of Rivellino, who left Corinthians in 1974) and Corinthians, from São Paulo, 450km away from Rio.
The hype was intense. Fluminense were the frank favorites: 10 of their starting 11 had already been capped to the Brazil NT, they were called the Tricolor Machine.
The Maracanã 146.000 capacity would be split half-half. 70.000 tickets were given to Corinthians by Fluminense, and they were sold out in less than 3 hours. Tens of thousands of Corinthianos started moving from São Paulo to Rio de Janeiro 2 days before the match: by airplane, bus, car, motorcycle, bike, taxi, it didn't matter, the Rio-São Paulo highway was dominated by Corinthians supporters (pic). On Saturday 4th, one day before the match, the city and the Copacabana beach of Rio de Janeiro became a huge Corinthianos party. Hundreds and hundreds of black and white flags and shirts all over the city.
On the day of the match, the atmosphere inside the Maracanã was INTENSE (5mn video). More than ever, Corinthians needed to end that title drought. Inexplicably, Corinthians fanbase had their biggest growth during the 60s/70s title drought. That's why they say that only the Corinthians supporters know what it's like to be a Corinthiano, that's why they nicknamed themselves "the Sufferers". Because they are the legitimate team of the people.
The match started under a moderate rain, and the pitch wasn't at its best. Fluminense opened the score at '29, with this goal from Pintinho. Corinthians needed at least a goal to go to extratime, and found it at '29 with Russo, after a corner kick. The rain intensified, and the pitch turned into this horrible mud. Not much happened afterwards, and the match went to the penalty kicks. Corinthians GK Tobias saved Fluminense's 1st and 2nd p.k., while Corinthians scored all their 3 penalties, and Fluminense only 1 out of 3. Zé Maria then scored Corinthians 4th penalty and qualified his team to the 1976 Brazilian League final.
However, Corinthians lost the final 0-2 to Falcão's Internacional, playing away. But the epic Invasão Corinthiana of Rio de Janeiro would be forever remembered in the Brazilian football history - this very good 46mn documentary comes back to 1976 and also shows the 2000 (Rio de Janeiro) and 2012 (Japan) Club World Cup posterior invasions.
1977: the State League title and the end of the drought
In 1977, Corinthians 23-year title drought finally came to an end, after they won the State League title. They played 48 matches, with 30W-6D-12L, cumulating 55% of the points. In the big final, they beat Ponte Preta 1-0, with Basílio scoring this eternal goal at '81.
It was Corinthians' 16th State League title, while their rivals had 18 (Palmeiras), 13 (Santos) and 11 (São Paulo) at that point. So, even without winning a State League title for 23 years, Corinthians was still fighting for São Paulo state title record.
1982-84: Socrates and the Corinthians Democracy
In the middle of the Brazilian military dictatorship, Corinthians chose to wave a flag in favor of democracy. It all began in April 1982, with the nomination of a sociologist, Adilson, to the football director job. Adilson liked to listen to the players, and along with politicized players such as Sócrates, Wladimir, Casagrande and Zenon, decided to establish an innovative democracy inside the club.
Basically, every decision (contracts, inside rules, etc) that was to be taken would be decided by voting. From the president to the average worker, all had the same right to vote, and the same vote weight. For example, thanks to this voting system, married players didn't need to sleep in hotels before matches with the rest of the team anymore. They would also use the Corinthians kit to spread political opinions in favor of democracy--such as the sayings "Diretas Já" ("Direct voting Now") and "Eu quero votar para presidente" ("I want to vote for president").
In April 1984, the Amendment Proposal For Direct Voting was rejected by the Chamber of Deputies, which collaborated to the departure of Sócrates to the Italian Serie A (Fiorentina), and to the end of the Corinthians Democracy. This talented generation won the São Paulo State Leagues of 1982 and 1983, and reached the 1982 and 1984 Brazilian League semi-finals.
This notable team provided the charming Brazil of 1982 (5mn46s video) with Sócrates, who played 265 matches for Corinthians, scoring 172 goals between 1978 and 1984.
1990: the first Brazilian League title
After winning the 1988 State League title, Corinthians won their first Brazilian League title in 1990. Led by midfielder Neto to the knock-out stages, Corinthians defeated Atlético Mineiro in the quarter-finals. In the 1st leg, they did a 2-1 comeback, with both goals from Neto: the first with a header and the second shooting from inside the box. In the 2nd leg, a 0-0 tie put Corinthians in the semi-final stage against Bahia.
In the 1st leg of the semis, Bahia opened the scored, but Corinthians tied with an own goal. Neto scored the 2nd goal with his trademark style, the free-kick. In the 2nd leg, a 0-0 tie was enough to put Corinthians in the final.
In the final, a derby between Corinthians and the São Paulo of Zetti, Cafu, Leonardo, Raí and the coach Telê Santana (former 1982 Brazil coach).
In the 1st leg, Wilson Mano scored the only goal of the match at '4. Fabinho (Corinthians) almost scored the 2nd after this brilliant run and conclusion, saved by Zetti, and Ronaldo (Corinthians GK), fantastic as always, kept Corinthians goal secured with great saves. In the final 2nd leg, Corinthians scored the only goal of the match at '54, after a great one-two between Fabinho and Tupãzinho, with the latter scoring the goal, and securing Corinthians first Brazilian League title.
Ronaldo (GK) and Marcelo Djian (CB) were both elected to the League's Best XI.
Corinthians kept the good shape and won 2 more State Leagues (1995, 1997) and 1 Copa do Brasil undefeated (1995), as well as 2nd place in the 1994 Brazilian League, with a new generation led by Viola and their eventual big idol, Marcelinho Carioca.
1998-2000: National legacy, champions of the World and the Copa Libertadores trauma
Tournament Champion Runner-up 3rd place 4th place
1998 Brazilian League Corinthians Cruzeiro Santos Portuguesa
1999 State League Corinthians Palmeiras Santos São Paulo
1999 Brazilian League Corinthians Atlético Mineiro Vitória São Paulo
2000 Club World Cup Corinthians Vasco Necaxa (Mexico) Real Madrid (Spain)
Vampeta, Rincón, Marcelinho and Ricardinho. The high-level of this midfield make the hearing of their names sound like poetry. The best Corinthians of all-time counted with other monsters such as GK Dida, Paraguayan CB Gamarra, LB Kléber, and the FW duo Luizão and Edílson. 5 of these guys were with the Brazil NT in the 2002 World Cup.
In this period, Corinthians won the 1998 and 1999 Brazilian Leagues, the 2000 Club World Cup and the 1999 São Paulo State League.
Luxemburgo (eventual Real Madrid coach) was the man behind the creation of this superteam. In the 1998 Brazilian League, Corinthians qualified to the knock-out stages with the best campaign. They first sent Grêmio home in the quarter-finals; and then Santos in the semi-finals, after three exciting matches (4mn51s video) and this fine and decisive goal by Edilson at '57 of the 3rd semi-final match.
In the big final against Cruzeiro, Corinthians started badly on the 1st match (away), losing 0-2 at half-time, but recovered greatly with two goals and left with a 2-2 tie. The 2nd leg, at home, was a 1-1 tie, with Corinthians opening the score and Cruzeiro equalizing later. In the 3rd final match, at home, Corinthians won by 2-0, with the first goal by Edilson at '70 and the second goal by Marcelinho Carioca at '80. For the 2nd time, Corinthians were crowned Brazilian champions. Gamarra and Vampeta were elected to the League's Best XI, while Edílson won the Golden Ball and Marcelinho Carioca was the team's topscorer with 19 goals in 28 matches. Their coach Luxemburgo left Corinthians to command the Brazil NT, appointing his auxiliary Oswaldo de Oliveira as the new coach.
Corinthians 1999 season was a hell of a rollercoaster. Qualified to the big dream, the Copa Libertadores, the team was the same as 1998, and had the arrival of Dida and Luizão.
In May 1999, Corinthians were knocked-off of the Copa Libertadores quarter-finals by their archrival Palmeiras, 2-4 on the penalties, after two evenly derbies (0-2, 2-0).
Weeks later, in June 1999, Corinthians and Palmeiras, again, disputed the final of the State League. Corinthians won the 1st derby 3-0. At minute 75 of the 2nd leg, with 2-2 in the score and Corinthians' title secured, Corinthians' winger Edílson performed the biggest provocation in the history of Brazilian football, by doing kick-ups with the ball, provoking this huge, epic and funny struggle. The match ended, and Corinthians were crowned State champions.
At the end of the season, Corinthians dominated the 1999 Brazilian League. In the K.O stage, they beat Guarani in the quarter-finals, and then their city rival São Paulo in the semis (3-2, 2-1), after Dida epically saved two penalties from São Paulo idol Raí (former PSG): the first on his left side at '52, and the second on his right side at '92. Corinthians then won the 2nd leg 2-1 and qualified to the finals.
They would face Atlético Mineiro, and lost the 1st leg (away) 2-3. At home in the 2nd leg, Corinthians beat them 2-0 with 2 goals from Luizão, the first at '28 from a header, and the second at '59 from inside the box. The 3rd leg was an electrifying 0-0 tie, and Corinthians were declared back-to-back Brazilian League champions.
Dida, Rincón and Vampeta were elected to the League's Best XI, Marcelinho Carioca won the Golden Ball, and Luizão was the team's topscorer with 21 goals in 25 matches.
The 2000 FIFA Club World Cup title
In 2000, took place in Brazil the first edition of the Club World Cup, and Corinthians qualified as Brazilian champions.

Before Real Madrid's match against Corinthians, the French centre-back Karembeu said he didn't know who Edilson (Corinthians number 10) was. In the match, Edilson humiliated him with this dismantling and shameful nutmeg, before scoring this painting of a goal. The match ended 2-2, with Edílson also scoring the other Corinthians goal.
This beautiful image is perfect to describe Karembeu's humiliating moment.
Corinthians would proceed to play against Vasco in the big final. 70.000 Corinthianos invaded Rio de Janeiro just like in 1976, expecting a great match against Vasco's dream team that had Romário, Edmundo and Juninho Pernambucano. After a 0-0 tie, it went to the penalties. Dida saved Gilberto's shot, and Marcelino Carioca only needed to score to end it, but he missed it. However, Edmundo lost Vasco's last penalty, and Corinthians were crowned Club World champions.
However, later that year, Corinthians met their archrivals Palmeiras once again in the Copa Libertadores, now in the semi-finals. After two crazy evenly derbies (4-3, 2-3), it went to the penalties, just like in 1999. And Marcelinho lost his one, getting Corinthians out of the tournament, and beginning a huge frustration and trauma of the Corinthianos for not having a continental title, while all their state rivals (Palmeiras, São Paulo and Santos) had.
2001-2010: Carlitos Tévez, the 2007 relegation, Ronaldo Nazário's last dance, and the Copa Libertadores trauma
The 2000s was a crazy decade for Corinthians.
They won 3 State League titles (2001, 2003, 2009), 1 Brazilian League (2005), 2 Copa do Brasil (2002, 2009) and 1 Rio-São Paulo (2002). But they were also relegated to the Brazilian League Serie B in 2007.
Highlights to their Galáticos 2005 team, led by Argentine stars Tévez and Mascherano, as well as Carlos Alberto (former Porto) and Nilmar (eventual Villareal), who together won the 2005 Brazilian League.
After their relegation to Serie B in 2007, the club rebuilt greatly under the president Andrés Sanchez.
He brought the legend Ronaldo Nazário in 2009, who led Corinthians to the 2009 State League title against Neymar's Santos and to the 2009 Copa do Brasil title against Internacional. Ronaldo scored 35 goals in 69 matches, with great highlights, notably this last-minute goal on his 1st match in a derby against Palmeiras and also this goal against Santos in the 2009 State League final. He was joined by left-back Roberto Carlos in 2010, before retiring in 2011.
But the Copa Libertadores trauma was still alive. The 30 million Corinthianos couldn't live with the jokes and suffering for not having a continental title.

But after the 2011 elimination, a new era began.
Corinthians 2011-2012: National, Continental and World champions, the dream came true
The coach Tite almost lost his job after the ridiculous defeat to Tolima. But he stayed and focused on the 2011 Brazilian League.
Corinthians dominated the league, leading it for 27 rounds (out of 38). On the last round, they tied 0-0 against Palmeiras and secured their 5th Brazilian League title. However, sadly on this same day, the old idol Sócrates passed away, at the age of 57.
Corinthians had thus qualified to the 2012 Copa Libertadores, which they would brilliantly win undefeated (8W-6D), as well as their 2nd FIFA Club World Cup title.

Corinthians topped their group stage, placing 2nd overall in the cup. In the round of 16 they met Emelec (Ecuador), and held a 0-0 tie away in the 1st leg, before beating them 3-0 at home in the 2nd leg without much problems, except this dangerous chance and this ball in the post in Ecuador.
In the quarter-finals, the adversary was the Brazilian team, Vasco. The 1st leg was in Rio de Janeiro, a 0-0 tie, with this only big chance in Corinthians' favor. In the 2nd leg, Corinthians were pressing Vasco a lot, until the minute 62, when Vasco forward Diego Souza threw this incredible opportunity away. Had he scored, Corinthians would need 2 goals in 30 minutes. Corinthians kept pressing, until Paulinho scored the winning goal at '87.
In the semi-finals, the current Copa Libertadores champions, Santos, with Neymar, Ganso, Elano & co., would be a tough opponent. But, playing away, Corinthians' Sheik opened the score at '27 with this nice goal. Cássio made this good defense at '57, and this other one at '80. In the 2nd leg, Neymar opened the score for Santos at '35, but Danilo scored for Corinthians at '47, as the match ended 1-1, with Corinthians qualified to their 1st Copa Libertadores final.
In the big final against Riquelme's Boca Juniors (Argentina), who were chasing their 7th title, Corinthians would play the first match in Argentina. Boca opened the score at '72, but Romarinho equalized at '84, after Paulinho took the ball from Riquelme. Boca still had time to hit the post at '90. In the 2nd leg in São Paulo, Sheik opened the score at '53 and scored the 2nd at '71, after a juvenile mistake by Boca. At '92 the match was over, and Corinthians were crowned Copa Libertadores champions for the first time, and undefeated.
2012 Club World Cup - Corinthians 1-0 Chelsea
After beating Al-Ahly (Egypt) 1-0 in the semis, with this goal from Paolo Guerrero, Corinthians was ready to face Chelsea, the European champions, in the final. 30.000 Corinthianos invaded Japan for this unique moment.
Cássio (GK) saved Corinthians at least 4 times, notably with this one. But at '68, after a confusion inside the box, Paolo Guerrero scored the only goal of the match. At '84, Fernando Torres lost this 1on1 opportunity, brilliantly saved by Cássio. At '94, the match ended, and Corinthians were crowned Club World champions for the 2nd time in their history.

2013-today
After these brilliant days, Corinthians remained on the top tier of Brazilian and South American football. They completed an International Treble in 2013 after winning the 2013 Recopa Sudamericana, won two more notable Brasileirão titles (2015, 2017), and also four more state leagues (2013, 2017, 2018, 2019). Their new arena was also concluded, in 2014.
Aqui é Corinthians!!! (This is Corinthians!!!)
To this day, Corinthians has a fanbase of 30 million supporters, and a stadium attendance average of 33.000, as of 2019.

2020.08.31 15:59 postvasectomy Todd Muir: Unfortunately, however, he has had numerous surgical procedures, all hoping to make him better, and ultimately making him worse.

Notes from postvasectomy:
Todd asks the doctor about vasectomy complications beforehand. Doctor gives the typical "vasectomy is safe, sometimes complications happen, including epdidiymitis which usually goes away on its own but very occasionally becomes chronic" type warning. Todd asks what about erectile dysfunction, doctor says any problems with erections would be "in your head." No big deal, really. Men hardly ever even call me after their vasectomy. This is such a chill procedure that even if you do call me, I might not even bother returning your call.
Todd goes in for the vasectomy Nov 2005. Some trouble during the vasectomy where he has retracted testicles that maybe caused the procedure to be more difficult and painful than it should have been. Four days later he goes to help coach youth skiing and tries to take it easy. He feels some minor pain when he is turning. A few days later he helps move a Christmas tree.
Things don't go well in December, and he talks with the doctor to tell him about his various pains, including leg pain. Doctor suggests Neurontin to help with the pain. January, Todd goes to his GP who schedules him for a visit with a urologist. February he goes to the Emergency Room twice complaining of pain. March, he visits the urologist who says the vasectomy looks good and maybe pelvic floor dysfunction. He has been unable to have sex with his wife since the vasectomy. He gets (spermatic cord?) injections and starts asking about a reversal. First doctor discourages getting a reversal. He goes to Dr. Burrows for a reversal, feels ok for a few weeks, then seems to get worse and worse.
He tries botox, lidocaine infusions, ketamine. At some point he has at least one testicle removed, which also doesn't help. He can't hold a job because he is in too much pain and can't sit in a chair. He tries to kill himself.
More than 10 years after the vasectomy, he tries to sue the urologist who did his vasectomy, arguing that:
The doctor argues that:
The judge sides with the Doctor.
I'm reminded of the American Urological Association statement:
Chronic scrotal pain associated with negative impact on quality of life occurs after vasectomy in about 1-2% of men. Few of these men require additional surgery.
That last sentence there "few require additional surgery" is presented as if to say that the pain that 1-2% of the men experience is not really very bad. Not bad enough to "require" surgery. I suppose this would be a correct way of looking at things if there were a simple, inexpensive, low-risk and effective surgical treatment available. But as Todd's story shows, more surgery comes with the risk of even worse quality of life. Sometimes, your best option might be to accept that your vasectomy has left you visiting the emergency room periodically, unable to have sex and unable to have a pain-free day. Few indeed are so desperate that they "require" additional surgery that may make their already terrible situation even worse.
Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta
Muir v Macdonald
July 12, 2017
This is an action by the Plaintiffs as against the Defendants for medical negligence as a result of complications that arose after the Defendant, Dr. Macdonald, performed a vasectomy on the Plaintiff, Mr. Muir. The surgery took place on November 30, 2005, at the Defendant’s clinic in Banff, Alberta.
In 2005, Todd and Kathleen Muir had been married for approximately 17 years. They had two sons. After some difficulties arose with their then method of birth control, they made the conscious decision not to have any more children, and decided to investigate the best method to ensure that happened. After much discussion, they decided to investigate whether a vasectomy was a suitable option for Mr. Muir.
The procedure was performed on November 30, 2005 and after the procedure, Mr. Muir had a number of difficulties and eventually developed chronic pain which has had a significant impact on his lifestyle and career.
Mr. Muir was an active youth and was involved in skiing, hockey, baseball, motorcycle and snowmobile riding. He had no significant injuries at the time of the surgery.
Mr. Muir sought treatment for the chronic pain that he said he suffered after the vasectomy. He met with, or consulted with, or was treated by numerous treatment providers.
The Defendant’s position is that a later surgical intervention caused the Plaintiff’s injuries, not anything related to the vasectomy.
The Plaintiffs submit that Dr. Macdonald breached the standard of care in the procedure itself and also by his actions both pre and post-surgically. According to the Plaintiffs, a patient who presents with retracted testicles should not undergo a no-scalpel vasectomy in that condition. The patient should be given a Valium, soak in a hot tub or have a hot towel to relax the testicles to see whether they were in a condition where a safe procedure can be performed. Furthermore, the epididymis is an extremely sensitive part of the male anatomy and prolonged contact with this area increases the risk of complications with the vasectomy. In this case, Mr. Muir presented with retracted testicles, which put him at a higher risk.
The Plaintiffs submit that Dr. Macdonald did not perform a physical examination of Mr. Muir’s genitals before beginning the procedure. The Plaintiffs also allege that Dr. Macdonald did not freeze Mr. Muir’s genitals appropriately.
According to the Plaintiffs, Dr. Macdonald should have stopped the procedure on the right side when he encountered difficulty trying to find the left-side vas deferens. At no point did Dr. Macdonald stop the procedure to advise Mr. Muir that it was taking longer than usual to complete the procedure. When Dr. Macdonald pierced his left-side vas deferens Mr. Muir felt extreme pain.
The Defendants submit that Dr. Macdonald did not breach the standard of care. He performed the no-scalpel vasectomy on Mr. Muir in accordance with his standard practice for no-scalpel vasectomies. The Defendants submit that the vasectomy proceeded without complication.
According to Mr. Muir, Dr. Macdonald encountered difficulties on the left side. Dr. Macdonald made the comment “I can’t find your left. I can’t find your vas”. Mr. Muir recalled that he grabbed the doctor’s arm and said you have to stop. During direct examination, Mr. Muir testified as follows:
Q. All right. Did he complete the procedure?
A. It took a while and then he did make the comment, "I found it". And then the next thing I knew he’d cut it.
Q. And when he cut it, what did you do?
A. By this time, and I don’t know, the freezing hadn’t taken great or it had worn off, whatever you say, but on this side I literally felt myself arch my back and buck up on the table and I could feel huge pain when he cut the left.
Mr. Muir testified that when he left the Clinic he was sore down in the “lower end”. He was not walking normally. He managed to get into his car and drive home. He stopped at one point to get out of the car and stretch. This was not because of his condition but because he wanted a break.
The after-care for the no-scalpel vasectomy was described on the pamphlet. Mr. Muir recalled there were some directions about heavy lifting and icing areas that were sore. He followed the procedure exactly. He had bruising and swelling. He was unsure when the bruising faded away although with time he started to improve. Mr. Muir recalled that he read somewhere that he could not have unprotected sex for a while. Once that period of time elapsed, he and his wife resumed sexual intercourse but Mr. Muir experienced a great deal of pain when he ejaculated. They tried a few more times but his pain continued. He began having pain in his left leg. Mr. Muir also started getting pain in his left foot whenever he sat. He found it was uncomfortable to wear tight clothing. Mr. Muir noticed that his left testicle had dropped lower.
Mr. Muir recalled helping with the family Christmas tree following the surgery. Because of his ongoing pain, he did not lift the tree but helped to steady it. He was not bent over but he bent his knee slightly and then he felt pain in his left scrotum.
In early December 2005, the ski season was just beginning. As he was head coach he was required to be present on the Lake Louise Ski Hill to help organize the students. He attended the ski hill [4 days after his vasectomy.] According to Mr. Muir, he would only take easy runs and check on groups. He felt some pain when he turned. He had no falls at this time. The sessions ran from 9:30 a.m. till noon and then again in the afternoon. He was involved in no other activities but he continued to ski for the duration of the 2005 and 2006 ski season.
Throughout the recovery process, he returned to walking normally. He still had pain shooting through to his left foot and after ejaculating.
Around the middle of December he called Dr. Macdonald. The first call was short as he was unable to speak directly with Dr. Macdonald. He then called again but still was not able to reach him. Following the phone messages, Mr. Muir sent an email to the Clinic. Shortly after he sent the email he received a call from Dr. Macdonald.
Mr. Muir explained to Dr. Macdonald that he was still experiencing pain. At one point, Dr. Macdonald commented that he sounded depressed and that he should come and see him and he would prescribe an anti-depressant called Elavil.
Dr. Macdonald confirmed that he would have advised Mr. Muir to take Elavil. He explained that it is a good second line drug because in low doses it is good for treating chronic pain and it is good for insomnia. In high doses it is used to treat depression.
Dr. Popowich did not believe that the shooting pain down the leg during ejaculation could be related to the no-scalpel vasectomy. The nerve that supplies the leg is nowhere near the operative site. This Court finds that Dr. Macdonald met the standard of care in all respects with the exception of failing to return Mr. Muir’s phone calls in a timely manner.
At this point in time, Dr. Macdonald’s involvement in the case ended. Following the surgery, Mr. Muir embarked on a long journey of procedures and visits with many medical practitioners.
January, 2006
Mr. Muir first went to see his general practitioner, Dr. McLaughlin. He could not recall if there was a physical examination. Following his appointment with Dr. McLaughlin he made an appointment with urologist Dr. Baverstock for March 2006.
Jan - Feb 2006
He attended at the emergency centre on at least two occasions in January and February 2006 as he continued to experience pain.
March, 2006
Mr. Muir saw Dr. Baverstock on March 6, 2006. When Mr. Muir explained his symptoms to Dr. Baverstock, he investigated possible cancer or prostrate problems. He prescribed Flomox and sent Mr. Muir for a cystoscopy to look at his bladder. The lab tests and scrotal ultrasound were normal. The physical examination was normal. Dr. Baverstock suspected pelvic floor dysfunction or spasm and recommended conservative treatment in the form of medication and physiotherapy. Based on his physical examination of Mr. Muir he thought he had had a good vasectomy.
Mr. Muir also saw Dr. Balharry, a general practitioner in Canmore. He saw Dr. Balharry on a number of occasions. He tried a number of injection treatments. On a couple of occasions the injections helped with the pain but the relief was not permanent.
May, 2006
Mr. Muir also saw Dr. Shields and Dr. Amundson, both urologists in Lethbridge. He saw Dr. Shields about obtaining a vasectomy reversal. Dr. Shields did not think this would be a good idea and specifically advised against it. Dr. Shields refunded his money as he did not want to do the reversal. Dr. Shields referred Mr. Muir to a pain specialist.
Dr. Shield’s examination of Mr. Muir’s epididymis, testicles and scrotum was normal. Dr. Shields could not determine the cause of Mr. Muir’s pain. Dr. Shields advised against a reversal. In his opinion it would likely aggravate rather than help alleviate the pain.
Mr. Muir also received a number of injections from Dr. Amundson.
Mr. Muir saw Dr. Abele, a urologist. Dr. Abele was not able to offer him a meaningful solution. He saw Dr. Hulyk, the father-in-law of one of his sisters. Dr. Hulyk made referrals and provided information.
Aug 2006
Mr. Muir found an American physician, Dr. Burrows, a urologist who specialized in vasectomy complications, in Tucson, Arizona. Dr. Burrows performed a vasectomy reversal in August 2006. Following the reversal, according to Mr. Muir, his symptoms improved for about three weeks. After three weeks he phoned Dr. Burrow’s office and advised he was experiencing a burning on the left side. He returned to Dr. Burrow’s office where Dr. Burrows checked the left side vas where they did the connection. His condition improved again. However, the pain and symptoms were not completely eliminated and the pain returned again.
Mr. Muir saw Dr. Burrows for a third time and there was further improvement. He still had a burning sensation in his feet and some pain in the left-hand side.
Mr. Muir continued to see doctors, including: Dr. Clark, a pain specialist; Dr. Aung; Dr. Levine, a urologist in Chicago, who specialized on post-vasectomy pain; Dr. Carslon; and Dr. Wilson, a neurologist. Dr. Wilson treated him with Botox. Although it provided temporary relief, it did not permanently relieve the pain. Dr. Robert and Dr. Binegar were two other doctors he saw. Dr. Binegar worked at the Mayo clinic in the United States. Dr. Brown worked in Montreal, a general surgeon who worked on groin injuries.
Dec 2010
Mr. Muir’s current physician is Dr. Ali. He has been treating Mr. Muir since December 2010. Dr. Ali recommended a number of treatments including ketamine infusions and lidocaine injections. Mr. Muir located these physicians and asked Dr. Ali to assist him in filling out the appropriate financial forms. Mr. Muir found some relief with ketamine infusions. Dr. Ali recalled that there was some improvement but Mr. Muir was having difficulty obtaining funding. There was also a clinical issue with respect to Mr. Muir’s blood pressure. Dr. Ali also noted that he “plateaud” with the ketamine infusion.
Dr. Ali also advised Mr. Muir that periphery nerve blocks would not improve his symptoms on a permanent basis. Mr. Muir wanted to proceed in any event.
The Plaintiffs submit that causation is established. Prior to the surgery, Mr. Muir was experiencing no pain. After the surgery, Mr. Muir left the Clinic with disabling pain. The only reasonable inference to be drawn from the facts is that something went wrong in the way the operation was performed.
The Defendant submits that if the chronic pain and decrease in functionality occurred regardless of Dr. Macdonald’s conduct, then the claim must be dismissed. According to the Defendants, the Plaintiff had the usual post-vasectomy pain but the pain became chronic as Mr. Muir exacerbated it by electing to go skiing and handling a heavy object within four days of the vasectomy. This was followed by numerous medical interventions. Furthermore, there was no objective medical evidence that Mr. Muir had complications or an infection.
Dr. Gordon did not examine Mr. Muir. Based on his review of the medical records, he opined that Mr. Muir probably has neuropathic pain that has been exacerbated by his various procedures, including the denervation and ilioinguinal procedures. Dr. Gordon noted that Mr. Muir has had various traumas to his nervous system. This led to sensitization and spread of pain outside the area of the nerves that were done.
According to Dr. Gordon, there is no clear evidence that Mr. Muir’s nerve was damaged. The initial spread down the left leg is supportive but not firm evidence. Dr. Gordon summarized the following in his expert report dated February 9, 2014:
Mr. Muir had so many other procedures that led to complicated neuropathic pain. These later surgical procedures have turned Mr. Muir’s pain into a nightmare of [neuropathic] pain, each one making him worse. Even the orchiectomy did not solve the problem. I cannot help but think that if he had stopped at the initial surgical procedure and tried a pain management program, in a comprehensive way that he would stick to, he may not have gone down this path. Unfortunately, however, he has had numerous surgical procedures, all hoping to make him better, and ultimately making him worse.
In Dr. Gordon’s opinion the initial pain experience by Mr. Muir in 2005 after the vasectomy was inflammatory. The procedure itself produced the inflammation leading to the release of inflammatory compounds. It is possible that the skiing on day four and the lifting of the Christmas tree a few days later could have stretched or damaged the nerve leading to further inflammation and pain or even nerve damage. The surgical site was traumatized by these activities.
For nine months following the vasectomy, Mr. Muir coached skiing, worked full-time, commuted to work in Lethbridge and exercised. This Court does not dispute that Mr. Muir experienced pain but he was able to carry on with daily living until he had the vasectomy reversal. He had a dramatic decline in functionality after August 2006. This Court has reviewed Mr. Muir’s evidence at trial that the vasectomy reversal and the removal of his left testicle by Dr. Burrows improved his condition in the long-term although not all of the pain and symptoms were eliminated. However, this evidence does not accord with such a decrease in functionality after the further medical interventions. It also does not accord with Mr. Muir’s continued pursuit of medical treatments. Therefore, I do not accept his evidence on this point. Although he may have experienced short term relief, ultimately, his situation worsened following the reversal and the further medical interventions. The Plaintiffs submit that the discussion of the risks of the procedure was inadequate. According to Dr. Pollock, Dr. Macdonald failed to obtain Mr. Muir’s consent for the procedure. The website (including the updated website) does not list post-vasectomy pain syndrome as a risk.
The Defendant’s position is that Dr. Macdonald’s consent discussion with Mr. Muir had to be consistent with the practice of a physician performing no-scalpel vasectomies in Alberta in 2005. The very small risk of chronic severe pain was disclosed to Mr. Muir prior to the no scalpel vasectomy in accordance with the standard of care required in 2005.
The Defendants submit that a reasonable person in Mr. Muir’s position would undergo the no-scalpel vasectomy if properly informed of the risk of chronic pain. Mr. Muir gave no evidence at trial that disclosure of this very small risk of severe chronic pain following a no-scalpel vasectomy would have caused him to decline the procedure.
Website Information and Consent Form states:
What complications can occur?
Epididymitis – a tender inflammation around the testis may occur after 4-5 days. This occasionally can result in a chronic ache and very seldom becomes severe.
Treatment- Anti-inflammatory drugs, usually subsides within a few days
Mr. Muir made a call and spoke with Dr. Macdonald. His questions to Dr. Macdonald revolved around the risks. He was concerned as to whether there was a risk it would affect his sexual performance. He asked some questions about physiology. He had four areas of questions. He asked whether the procedure could affect erections. Dr. Macdonald replied only if it is “in your head.” Dr. Macdonald appeared to be in a hurry. The phone call lasted approximately ten minutes. During the phone call, Mr. Muir was referred to the clinic’s website.
Dr. Macdonald testified that he always discusses the following risks with the patient:
I always discuss with patients the risk of any surgery. There’s a small risk of bleeding, infection. And with no-scalpel vasectomy, I always talk about the condition called Epididymitis which means inflammation of the epididymis.
Q Why do you always talk about that?
A Because it’s the most complication of vasectomy.
Q And what is that complication? Just describe it for the court.
A The complication is inflammation -- the pathology is inflammation in the epididymis. Usually this self-limiting and settles down but it is the commonest. It can occur in up to 6 percent of patients. Very occasionally it can become chronic.
The Plaintiffs submit that after the procedure Mr. Muir was no longer able to run, bend over or sit properly. He experienced constant pain which affected his ability to participate in sports, use of the toilet and sexual arousal. This interfered with his ability to participate in sporting activities with his sons and family activities such as hiking and family holidays. It has deeply affected his mental state to the point where he has attempted to take his own life.
The Defendants submit that Mr. Muir had the usual recovery pain expected from a noscalpel vasectomy. It is the events that transpired after November 30, 2006 which caused Mr. Muir’s pain to persist and become chronic, including handling the Christmas tree four days postsurgery and skiing at Lake Louise. Any general damages should take into account that Mr. Muir was able to work full-time, travel regularly between Cochrane and Lethbridge and ski the 2005/2006 season.
After the procedure, Mr. Muir skied for the remainder of the season. In 2006, when he started working for the City of Lethbridge he was able to participate in a slow pitch game and could still run to some extent. He was unable to play hockey. Mr. Muir was unable to ski the following year. He would have to drive out to the hill lying down. At one point in time he had to remain on the main floor of his house with a limited radius with one bathroom and one couch.
After he left the City of Lethbridge, he did some consulting for the Edmonton Ski Area. He then got a job with Pro-Am Motorsports in Calgary in sales. He then worked for Gold’s Gym in sales. He was let go from this job as he was unable to sit whilst speaking with clients. He then worked for the Town of Athabasca as general manager of a sports plex. As he wanted to be closer to home he obtained a job at the Okotoks Field House. This job was too stressful and difficult due to the standing requirements, so he was forced to quit. He then worked in Chestermere for six months at their recreation complex. He then obtained a job in Moose Jaw. He lives next to the sports complex and commutes home to Cochrane every two weeks. He has worked there for approximately one and half years.
Based on the evidence before me, this Court notes that Mr. Muir was fully functioning up until the vasectomy reversal. While, this Court does not dispute that Mr. Muir was still experiencing pain, he was still able to ski, work and drive.
Mr. Muir’s intimate relations with his wife were severely affected. Mr. Muir gave evidence that he was unable to have any sexual relations with his wife following the vasectomy.
After the vasectomy, Mr. Muir continued to work until undergoing vasectomy reversal in August 2006. Mr. Muir was off work for approximately six weeks following the second procedure and after returning to work for a couple of weeks in October was unable to work from OctobeNovember 2006 to 2013. He was then unable to work full-time until 2016. Mr. Muir was in receipt of short term disability benefits prior to his termination from the City of Lethbridge and then he was in receipt of CPP disability benefits from 2007 to 2015.
This Court finds that there is no future loss of income, due to this Court’s conclusion that Mr. Muir’s pain would have resolved within two years following the surgery had he chosen to pursue conservative treatment.
Based on the above findings, the Plaintiffs have failed to establish liability. That being the case, no damages are payable.

2020.08.28 10:56 AnnieIWillKnow The Chelsea FC Women 2020/21 Season Preview

Introduction

Welcome to the Chelsea FC Women 2020/21 Season Preview! This post will take a look at the season ahead for manager Emma Hayes’ team, as women’s football returns for the new domestic season.
The season officially gets underway on Saturday, when Women’s Super League champions Chelsea face runners-up Man City in the Women’s Community Shield at Wembley.
The Covid-19 pandemic saw the 2019/20 Women’s Super League ended without the full fixture list being completed. The league standings were determined on a points-per-game basis, which saw the undefeated Chelsea jump ahead of Man City to be declared WSL champions for the third team in our history. This also means Chelsea have qualified for next season’s Champions League – Chelsea reached the semi-final for the first time back in 2018, and missed out on last season’s competition.
Despite the pandemic, Chelsea and our rivals have nonetheless remained busy in the transfer market, with the key arrivals and departures being summarised in this post. The recruitment of title rivals Man City and Arsenal means that Chelsea will face a stern challenge to defending their title, this season, especially given our European commitments.
Although we are now entering the 2020/21 season, there is still also the matter of the 2019/20 FA Cup to be decided – the competition was suspended at the quarter final stage back in March, with those fixtures set to be completed this autumn. Chelsea are still in the competition, and are due to face Everton in the quarter final – and if we are successful in lifting the cup, will have completed a domestic treble for the first time in Chelsea history, having beaten Arsenal to win the Continental Tyres Cup (League Cup) back in February.
Many Chelsea players will also have their eye on the upcoming Tokyo Olympics, which has been rescheduled for summer 2021. Olympic football is considered a major tournament in women’s football, and there will be interest for our British players too, with Team GB set to enter a team.
For those in need of a refresh of has last year went for Chelsea FC Women, the 2019/20 Season Review can be found here.

Feel free to skip ahead to the final summary for a brief overview!

The transfer window

Transfers in

Chelsea began their business early, by announcing the signing of the highly-regarded Bayern Munich captain Melanie Leupolz back in March – a move which manager Hayes called a “statement of intent”. Our midfield had been one area highlighted as for improvement, and this is a signing which adds experience and quality to the middle of the park.
The Chelsea midfield will be further boosted by the signing of 22 year old Canadian Jessie Fleming. The youngster has experience beyond her years, having made her senior debut for Canada at the age of just 15, and is one of the hottest prospects in North American football. Fleming will bring more creativity to the side, and is primarily employed as an attacking midfielder.
Another young player to join Chelsea this summer – but from slightly closer to home – is 21 year old Niamh Charles. The wide midfielder was one of the few highlights for a Liverpool side who were relegated last season, and a player who Hayes has said she has wanted at Chelsea for a while, and for many years to come.

Tranfers out

The transfer window has also seen some considerable outwards movement at Chelsea FC Women.
Adelina Engman has moved on to French side Montpelier, after a spell at Chelsea in which she made some important contributions, but was unable to move beyond being a squad player. Defender Deanna Cooper was let go, after her contract was allowed to expire, and has now signed for WSL team Reading – Cooper also had a role limited primarily to rotation in her 3 years at the club, which was also marked by long-term injury.
A more notable departure is that of Ramona Bachmann – the forward has been at Chelsea for 3 and a half years, in which time she has tormented opposition defences and delighted Chelsea fans with her flair and skill. She will be best remembered for a brace in the 2018 FA Cup Final victory over Arsena, when Chelsea won our second domestic double in four yearsl. With the attacking signings Chelsea had made over the past year – and especially that of Sam Kerr – it was Bachmann who was most often left out, and so her moving on is not too surprising. Ramona has signed for PSG, who are themselves a major force in women’s European football.
This summer also saw veteran Anita Asante leave the Blues for the second time, after two years with the club in her second spell. Asante re-joined back in 2018, and her contributions were sadly limited by serious injury – with an ACL tear in her first season and a quadriceps rupture in her second seeing her miss a lot of playing time. Nonetheless, when healthy Asante proved her value to the side, adding class, experience and leadership to the team. Asante will always be fondly remembered at Chelsea, and has reunited with former teammate and Chelsea legend Eni Aluko at newly-promoted Aston Villa, where the now-retired Aluko is the sporting director.

Squad update

Chelsea’s ingoings and outgoings have been nicely balanced, meaning our squad remains healthy in terms of both numbers and quality. The transfer window has seen us strengthen one area of concern – the midfield. Some last season did express doubts about our lack of defensive organisation at times, but Hayes has chosen not to strengthen here, suggesting that she is confident that the personnel she already has are up to the task.
Attack remains Chelsea’s area of strength. There will be much excitement over the chance to see more of Aussie star Sam Kerr in a Chelsea shirt. The striker signed for Chelsea in January to much fanfare, but international commitments and the early curtailment of the season meant we only saw glimpses of her talent – the early signs are of a very promising partnership with Chelsea top scorer and official Chelsea Women Player of the Season Beth England, which heralds much hope for the future. England was one of the best players in the WSL last season, and has been nominated for the Women’s PFA Player of the Year in recognition of this. The Chelsea ranks will also be bolstered by the return of Fran Kirby to the action – the forward missed the majority of the 2019/20 season through a debilitating battle with viral pericarditis, and recently spoke about how close she came to quitting the sport. Fortunately, the 2017/18 PFA Player of the Year is now symptom-free, and ready to make her return.
As part of our summer business, Chelsea also announced new contracts for Beth England, Erin Cuthbert, Millie Bright, Drew Spence and Guro Reiten – all of whom are key players for the Blues, and it is encouraging that we are holding on to them for the foreseeable future. The Beth England deal is particularly notable for its length – most women’s contracts are a year or two years long, whereas England has re-signed for the next four years, which firstly represents how highly the club value her, but also potentially a sign of the changing financial power of women’s football.

Pre-season

As for all football teams at this time, it has been a slightly strange pre-season for Chelsea Women, with no high-profile friendlies, and instead behind closed doors and inter-squad matches, of which little has been reported.
Hayes sends positive reports from pre-season – saying she is pleased with the effort and commitment being shown from the whole squad, and with how the three new signings are settling in. Chelsea doing business early means that Hayes has had her squad as she wants it for the duration of pre-season. The Blues boss made a point in her interview about the challenge of Man City and Arsenal, and warned against the complacency that comes with being champions.

Rivals

Last season saw English women’s three biggest clubs – Chelsea, Manchester City, and Arsenal – duke it out in a tense title race, with Man City leading the table when play was suspended, only for Chelsea to leapfrog them to win the title based on our superior points-per-game record. City and Arsenal remain Chelsea’s biggest competitors, and both clubs have made moves in the transfer market this summer – meaning it is likely to be another close and hard-fought title race.
Arsenal, managed by the Australian Joe Montemurro, have gone Down Under for their recruitment, signing left back Steph Catley and goalkeeper Lydia Williams from Melbourne City. They have also acquired 19 year old Swiss midfielder Malin Gut. These signings from Arsenal are decent transfers which will strengthen their squad, but pale somewhat in the comparison to the moves Man City have made...
Last season saw City manager Nick Cushing leave for a job in the MLS at New York City FC, and he was replaced by academy coach Gareth Edwards, who has little experience as a senior or women’s manager. Man City have turned to the market to support their new manager – and potentially feeling slighted at having lost out on the title in such a bizarre manner – have made some serious moves, chief amongst them the acquisition of USWNT star and World Cup winner Rose Lavelle, in one of the all-time big transfers in the WSL. Lavelle joins fellow American midfielder Sam Mewis, and Man City have also strengthened in attack with the signing of 22 year old Chloe Kelly from Everton, who was one of the standout players in the WSL last year.
Man City are not done yet, too – and have been heavily linked with the re-signing of Lucy Bronze, who left Man City back in 2017 for Lyon, and has announced she will not be signing a new contract. Former Manchester United captain Alex Greenwood has also been linked to City, in a cross-city move, following a year at Lyon.
Based on this summer, it is likely Man City will be the biggest threat to Chelsea’s title defence – and given how impressive their window has been, many are calling them favourites for the WSL. This weekend’s Community Shield will set a very interesting marker for the season ahead.
WSL up-and-comers Manchester United also bear mentioning. Man United only re-established their women’s team in 2018, and immediately entered at the Championship (second tier) level, storming to the title in their debut season under England legend and manager Casey Stoney, with a squad bursting full of WSL standard players. In their debut season in the top flight last year, they finished fourth – behind only the 3 elite teams – and continue to heavily invest in their women’s squad. Man United’s signings include England international Lucy Staniforth, Spain’s Ona Batlle, and the 19 year old German Ivano Fuso. These are smart signings, although not nes that will have Hayes too worried yet – although there are rumours of Man United being linked to some USWNT players, too, with the transfer window set to close on the 10th September… so watch this space. It is unlikely Man United are yet ready to seriously challenge for the title, but they will very much be capable of challenging in individual games – and will be a stern test for Chelsea in our first league fixture of the season.

Expectations for the season

Success in Europe has been the primary objective for Emma Hayes and her side for several seasons now, and so our season will likely be measured in success by progress in the Champions League.
Our semi-final finish in 2018, where we lost to eventual champions and European behemoths Lyon, is our best ever finish – pushing through that barrier will be a huge step forward. Given Lyon’s dominance, it is likely the French giants who are the biggest obstacle to future progress – if you want to win the Champions League, you essentially have to beat Lyon. Lyon are again in this season’s (delayed) final, due to take place on Sunday against German side Wolfsburg. There have been murmurs that Lyon are not quite the force they used to be, so this will be an interesting watch for any Chelsea fan.
Domestically, our title defence will be a serious ask against a strengthened Man City and Arsenal – especially as our focus will likely be elsewhere. The title race was incredibly close last season, although Chelsea did do a league double over Arsenal, and beat Man City at home before drawing away, as well as going unbeaten. As mentioned, Man City in particular have made some great singings, but with a new manager with limited experience as a head coach, it remains to be seen how well utilised they well be. Arsenal, having missed out on Champions League qualification, will have the benefit of a lighter fixture list, and that is an advantage that served Chelsea well last season. Arsenal, unlike Man City and Chelsea, have already returned to action due to their ongoing participation in this season’s Champions League – they lost 1-0 to PSG in the quarter finals.
Chelsea have a lot of quality, and strength in depth – our squad depth has been the envy of the WSL for a while now. With names like England, Kerr, Kirby, Cuthbert, Ji, Bright, Mjelde, Ingle, Thorisdottir and Eriksson (amongst many others) there is no denying the quality we can call upon, and we should be confident of taking on any team in the WSL. Chelsea are always in with a chance of silverware in the cup competitions, and amongst the favourites, so it can be expected that we will make serious challenges here, too. The 2019/20 FA Cup is set to finish this autumn, before the 2020/21 FA Cup begins after Christmas, and the Continental Tyres Cup (League Cup) for 2020/21 is also set to begin this autumn – with Chelsea looking to defend the trophy we won for the first-ever time, back in February.
In terms of playing personnel – there will be a lot of expectation on Sam Kerr to deliver this season, after a curtailed first half a season for the Blues, in which the signs were encouraging, but her impact was limited. Her burgeoning partnership with Beth England is highly exciting, and word is that Hayes looks to play the two of them alongside the finally fit-again Fran Kirby, in what could be a hugely exciting attacking line-up.
For a team like Chelsea, with a manager like Emma Hayes, the target is ultimately winning every competition we take part in – the Blues have gotten used to regular silverware in recent years, and despite the challenges and competition for the season ahead, those remain the expectations at the club.

How to follow

The best place for updates on Chelsea FC Women are the club’s social media platforms, and the official club website:
This season, television coverage of the WSL will also be being provided by BT Sport for UK viewers, with the BBC having the rights to selected FA Cup games – which are streamed for free online to UK viewers.
Best of all, the WSL has its own bespoke streaming platform, the FA Player which is free to sign up for and accessible worldwide. On the FA Player, every WSL game ***not* being televised is shown, for free, and is the best way to see Chelsea FC Women in action.
Finally, you can keep up to date with Chelsea FC Women at /chelsealadiesfc, as well as through the monthly review posts, which I will share throughout the season both on /chelsealadiesfc, and /chelseafc.

Summary

Chelsea FC Women kick off their 2020/21 season this Saturday in the Women’s Community Shield. The targets for Emma Hayes’ side this season are set high – defending the WSL title we won in strange circumstances this year, continuing to make our mark on the European stage as an elite women’s club, and seriously challenging for the two domestic cups. It is progress in Europe which Hayes and her team have highlighted as the primary goal – although Chelsea will have to be careful this does not come at the expense of standards slipping domestically, especially considering how well title rivals Arsenal, and especially Man City, have strengthened this year. Man City’s signing of USWNT star Rose Lavelle has made waves in the game, and is very much a move which signals their serious ambition this season.
A decent, if not spectacular window of our own has since us strengthen the midfield with the signing of Germany captain Melanie Leupolz and young Canadian sensation Jessie Fleming, as well as Niamh Charles, formerly of Liverpool. New contracts for several key players, as well as the return to fitness of 2017/18 Player of the Year Fran Kirby means the Chelsea squad remains in a good position, and Emma Hayes is reportedly happy with her players. This season will also be huge for January signing Sam Kerr – on paper arguably the best player in the WSL, and certainly the biggest name. The Aussie had limited opportunity to make an impact last season, and there is a lot of buzz around her burgeoning partnership with two-time Player of the Year and top scorer Beth England. If Hayes gets this attacking trio firing and they remain healthy, this season could be quite something.
Following the formal curtain opener on Saturday, WSL action begins the following week as we travel away to Manchester United, who have had a decent window of their own. Last season’s fourth-placed finishers will look to challenge the Big 3 this season, and this is a tough opening fixture for the Blues.
The 2019/20 Women’s FA Cup resumes on the 26th September as Chelsea play Everton away in the quarter finals – if we win this trophy, leftover from the curtailed 2019/20 season, it will mean Chelsea will have completed our first ever domestic treble.
This year will be jam-packed with fixtures for Chelsea FC Women, and we will consider ourselves genuine contenders for each and every tournament we take part in. Watch this space for updates on the women’s side throughout the season.

UTC and KTBFFH!

Welcome to the Chelsea FC Women 2020/21 Season Preview! This post will take a look at the season ahead for manager Emma Hayes’ team, as women’s football returns for the new domestic season.
The season officially gets underway on Saturday, when Women’s Super League champions Chelsea face runners-up Man City in the Women’s Community Shield at Wembley.
The Covid-19 pandemic saw the 2019/20 Women’s Super League ended without the full fixture list being completed. The league standings were determined on a points-per-game basis, which saw the undefeated Chelsea jump ahead of Man City to be declared WSL champions for the third team in our history. This also means Chelsea have qualified for next season’s Champions League – Chelsea reached the semi-final for the first time back in 2018, and missed out on last season’s competition.
Despite the pandemic, Chelsea and our rivals have nonetheless remained busy in the transfer market, with the key arrivals and departures being summarised in this post. The recruitment of title rivals Man City and Arsenal means that Chelsea will face a stern challenge to defending their title, this season, especially given our European commitments.
Although we are now entering the 2020/21 season, there is still also the matter of the 2019/20 FA Cup to be decided – the competition was suspended at the quarter final stage back in March, with those fixtures set to be completed this autumn. Chelsea are still in the competition, and are due to face Everton in the quarter final – and if we are successful in lifting the cup, will have completed a domestic treble for the first time in Chelsea history, having beaten Arsenal to win the Continental Tyres Cup (League Cup) back in February.
Many Chelsea players will also have their eye on the upcoming Tokyo Olympics, which has been rescheduled for summer 2021. Olympic football is considered a major tournament in women’s football, and there will be interest for our British players too, with Team GB set to enter a team.
For those in need of a refresh of has last year went for Chelsea FC Women, the 2019/20 Season Review can be found here.

Feel free to skip ahead to the final summary for a brief overview!

The transfer window

Transfers in

Chelsea began their business early, by announcing the signing of the highly-regarded Bayern Munich captain Melanie Leupolz back in March – a move which manager Hayes called a “statement of intent”. Our midfield had been one area highlighted as for improvement, and this is a signing which adds experience and quality to the middle of the park.
The Chelsea midfield will be further boosted by the signing of 22 year old Canadian Jessie Fleming. The youngster has experience beyond her years, having made her senior debut for Canada at the age of just 15, and is one of the hottest prospects in North American football. Fleming will bring more creativity to the side, and is primarily employed as an attacking midfielder.
Another young player to join Chelsea this summer – but from slightly closer to home – is 21 year old Niamh Charles. The wide midfielder was one of the few highlights for a Liverpool side who were relegated last season, and a player who Hayes has said she has wanted at Chelsea for a while, and for many years to come.

Tranfers out

The transfer window has also seen some considerable outwards movement at Chelsea FC Women.
Adelina Engman has moved on to French side Montpelier, after a spell at Chelsea in which she made some important contributions, but was unable to move beyond being a squad player. Defender Deanna Cooper was let go, after her contract was allowed to expire, and has now signed for WSL team Reading – Cooper also had a role limited primarily to rotation in her 3 years at the club, which was also marked by long-term injury.
A more notable departure is that of Ramona Bachmann – the forward has been at Chelsea for 3 and a half years, in which time she has tormented opposition defences and delighted Chelsea fans with her flair and skill. She will be best remembered for a brace in the 2018 FA Cup Final victory over Arsena, when Chelsea won our second domestic double in four yearsl. With the attacking signings Chelsea had made over the past year – and especially that of Sam Kerr – it was Bachmann who was most often left out, and so her moving on is not too surprising. Ramona has signed for PSG, who are themselves a major force in women’s European football.
This summer also saw veteran Anita Asante leave the Blues for the second time, after two years with the club in her second spell. Asante re-joined back in 2018, and her contributions were sadly limited by serious injury – with an ACL tear in her first season and a quadriceps rupture in her second seeing her miss a lot of playing time. Nonetheless, when healthy Asante proved her value to the side, adding class, experience and leadership to the team. Asante will always be fondly remembered at Chelsea, and has reunited with former teammate and Chelsea legend Eni Aluko at newly-promoted Aston Villa, where the now-retired Aluko is the sporting director.

Squad update

Chelsea’s ingoings and outgoings have been nicely balanced, meaning our squad remains healthy in terms of both numbers and quality. The transfer window has seen us strengthen one area of concern – the midfield. Some last season did express doubts about our lack of defensive organisation at times, but Hayes has chosen not to strengthen here, suggesting that she is confident that the personnel she already has are up to the task.
Attack remains Chelsea’s area of strength. There will be much excitement over the chance to see more of Aussie star Sam Kerr in a Chelsea shirt. The striker signed for Chelsea in January to much fanfare, but international commitments and the early curtailment of the season meant we only saw glimpses of her talent – the early signs are of a very promising partnership with Chelsea top scorer and official Chelsea Women Player of the Season Beth England, which heralds much hope for the future. England was one of the best players in the WSL last season, and has been nominated for the Women’s PFA Player of the Year in recognition of this. The Chelsea ranks will also be bolstered by the return of Fran Kirby to the action – the forward missed the majority of the 2019/20 season through a debilitating battle with viral pericarditis, and recently spoke about how close she came to quitting the sport. Fortunately, the 2017/18 PFA Player of the Year is now symptom-free, and ready to make her return.
As part of our summer business, Chelsea also announced new contracts for Beth England, Erin Cuthbert, Millie Bright, Drew Spence and Guro Reiten – all of whom are key players for the Blues, and it is encouraging that we are holding on to them for the foreseeable future. The Beth England deal is particularly notable for its length – most women’s contracts are a year or two years long, whereas England has re-signed for the next four years, which firstly represents how highly the club value her, but also potentially a sign of the changing financial power of women’s football.

Pre-season

As for all football teams at this time, it has been a slightly strange pre-season for Chelsea Women, with no high-profile friendlies, and instead behind closed doors and inter-squad matches, of which little has been reported.
Hayes sends positive reports from pre-season – saying she is pleased with the effort and commitment being shown from the whole squad, and with how the three new signings are settling in. Chelsea doing business early means that Hayes has had her squad as she wants it for the duration of pre-season. The Blues boss made a point in her interview about the challenge of Man City and Arsenal, and warned against the complacency that comes with being champions.

Rivals

Last season saw English women’s three biggest clubs – Chelsea, Manchester City, and Arsenal – duke it out in a tense title race, with Man City leading the table when play was suspended, only for Chelsea to leapfrog them to win the title based on our superior points-per-game record. City and Arsenal remain Chelsea’s biggest competitors, and both clubs have made moves in the transfer market this summer – meaning it is likely to be another close and hard-fought title race.
Arsenal, managed by the Australian Joe Montemurro, have gone Down Under for their recruitment, signing left back Steph Catley and goalkeeper Lydia Williams from Melbourne City. They have also acquired 19 year old Swiss midfielder Malin Gut. These signings from Arsenal are decent transfers which will strengthen their squad, but pale somewhat in the comparison to the moves Man City have made...
Last season saw City manager Nick Cushing leave for a job in the MLS at New York City FC, and he was replaced by academy coach Gareth Edwards, who has little experience as a senior or women’s manager. Man City have turned to the market to support their new manager – and potentially feeling slighted at having lost out on the title in such a bizarre manner – have made some serious moves, chief amongst them the acquisition of USWNT star and World Cup winner Rose Lavelle, in one of the all-time big transfers in the WSL. Lavelle joins fellow American midfielder Sam Mewis, and Man City have also strengthened in attack with the signing of 22 year old Chloe Kelly from Everton, who was one of the standout players in the WSL last year.
Man City are not done yet, too – and have been heavily linked with the re-signing of Lucy Bronze, who left Man City back in 2017 for Lyon, and has announced she will not be signing a new contract. Former Manchester United captain Alex Greenwood has also been linked to City, in a cross-city move, following a year at Lyon.
Based on this summer, it is likely Man City will be the biggest threat to Chelsea’s title defence – and given how impressive their window has been, many are calling them favourites for the WSL. This weekend’s Community Shield will set a very interesting marker for the season ahead.
WSL up-and-comers Manchester United also bear mentioning. Man United only re-established their women’s team in 2018, and immediately entered at the Championship (second tier) level, storming to the title in their debut season under England legend and manager Casey Stoney, with a squad bursting full of WSL standard players. In their debut season in the top flight last year, they finished fourth – behind only the 3 elite teams – and continue to heavily invest in their women’s squad. Man United’s signings include England international Lucy Staniforth, Spain’s Ona Batlle, and the 19 year old German Ivano Fuso. These are smart signings, although not nes that will have Hayes too worried yet – although there are rumours of Man United being linked to some USWNT players, too, with the transfer window set to close on the 10th September… so watch this space. It is unlikely Man United are yet ready to seriously challenge for the title, but they will very much be capable of challenging in individual games – and will be a stern test for Chelsea in our first league fixture of the season.

Expectations for the season

Success in Europe has been the primary objective for Emma Hayes and her side for several seasons now, and so our season will likely be measured in success by progress in the Champions League.
Our semi-final finish in 2018, where we lost to eventual champions and European behemoths Lyon, is our best ever finish – pushing through that barrier will be a huge step forward. Given Lyon’s dominance, it is likely the French giants who are the biggest obstacle to future progress – if you want to win the Champions League, you essentially have to beat Lyon. Lyon are again in this season’s (delayed) final, due to take place on Sunday against German side Wolfsburg. There have been murmurs that Lyon are not quite the force they used to be, so this will be an interesting watch for any Chelsea fan.
Domestically, our title defence will be a serious ask against a strengthened Man City and Arsenal – especially as our focus will likely be elsewhere. The title race was incredibly close last season, although Chelsea did do a league double over Arsenal, and beat Man City at home before drawing away, as well as going unbeaten. As mentioned, Man City in particular have made some great singings, but with a new manager with limited experience as a head coach, it remains to be seen how well utilised they well be. Arsenal, having missed out on Champions League qualification, will have the benefit of a lighter fixture list, and that is an advantage that served Chelsea well last season. Arsenal, unlike Man City and Chelsea, have already returned to action due to their ongoing participation in this season’s Champions League – they lost 1-0 to PSG in the quarter finals.
Chelsea have a lot of quality, and strength in depth – our squad depth has been the envy of the WSL for a while now. With names like England, Kerr, Kirby, Cuthbert, Ji, Bright, Mjelde, Ingle, Thorisdottir and Eriksson (amongst many others) there is no denying the quality we can call upon, and we should be confident of taking on any team in the WSL. Chelsea are always in with a chance of silverware in the cup competitions, and amongst the favourites, so it can be expected that we will make serious challenges here, too. The 2019/20 FA Cup is set to finish this autumn, before the 2020/21 FA Cup begins after Christmas, and the Continental Tyres Cup (League Cup) for 2020/21 is also set to begin this autumn – with Chelsea looking to defend the trophy we won for the first-ever time, back in February.
In terms of playing personnel – there will be a lot of expectation on Sam Kerr to deliver this season, after a curtailed first half a season for the Blues, in which the signs were encouraging, but her impact was limited. Her burgeoning partnership with Beth England is highly exciting, and word is that Hayes looks to play the two of them alongside the finally fit-again Fran Kirby, in what could be a hugely exciting attacking line-up.
For a team like Chelsea, with a manager like Emma Hayes, the target is ultimately winning every competition we take part in – the Blues have gotten used to regular silverware in recent years, and despite the challenges and competition for the season ahead, those remain the expectations at the club.

How to follow

The best place for updates on Chelsea FC Women are the club’s social media platforms, and the official club website:
This season, television coverage of the WSL will also be being provided by BT Sport for UK viewers, with the BBC having the rights to selected FA Cup games – which are streamed for free online to UK viewers.
Best of all, the WSL has its own bespoke streaming platform, the FA Player which is free to sign up for and accessible worldwide. On the FA Player, every WSL game ***not* being televised is shown, for free, and is the best way to see Chelsea FC Women in action.

Summary

Chelsea FC Women kick off their 2020/21 season this Saturday in the Women’s Community Shield. The targets for Emma Hayes’ side this season are set high – defending the WSL title we won in strange circumstances this year, continuing to make our mark on the European stage as an elite women’s club, and seriously challenging for the two domestic cups. It is progress in Europe which Hayes and her team have highlighted as the primary goal – although Chelsea will have to be careful this does not come at the expense of standards slipping domestically, especially considering how well title rivals Arsenal, and especially Man City, have strengthened this year. Man City’s signing of USWNT star Rose Lavelle has made waves in the game, and is very much a move which signals their serious ambition this season.
A decent, if not spectacular window of our own has since us strengthen the midfield with the signing of Germany captain Melanie Leupolz and young Canadian sensation Jessie Fleming, as well as Niamh Charles, formerly of Liverpool. New contracts for several key players, as well as the return to fitness of 2017/18 Player of the Year Fran Kirby means the Chelsea squad remains in a good position, and Emma Hayes is reportedly happy with her players. This season will also be huge for January signing Sam Kerr – on paper arguably the best player in the WSL, and certainly the biggest name. The Aussie had limited opportunity to make an impact last season, and there is a lot of buzz around her burgeoning partnership with two-time Player of the Year and top scorer Beth England. If Hayes gets this attacking trio firing and they remain healthy, this season could be quite something.
Following the formal curtain opener on Saturday, WSL action begins the following week as we travel away to Manchester United, who have had a decent window of their own. Last season’s fourth-placed finishers will look to challenge the Big 3 this season, and this is a tough opening fixture for the Blues.
The 2019/20 Women’s FA Cup resumes on the 26th September as Chelsea play Everton away in the quarter finals – if we win this trophy, leftover from the curtailed 2019/20 season, it will mean Chelsea will have completed our first ever domestic treble.
This year will be jam-packed with fixtures for Chelsea FC Women, and we will consider ourselves genuine contenders for each and every tournament we take part in. Watch this space for updates on the women’s side throughout the season.
UTC and KTBFFH!
