Michel Vorm

Tottenham lost their second match of the season as Liverpool ran out 2-1 winners at Wembley. The Reds were the better side as goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino gave them a conformable lead.

Spur barely got an attack going but Erik Lamela scored in time added on. Michel Vorm could be blamed for both goals and Son Heung-min should have had a penalty in the last minute of the game.

Tottenham were flat throughout the tie and it is a bit of a concern that we are losing our steam at such an early stage of the season.

Mauricio Pochettino has to work on the side as our next game is a Champions League clash against Inter Milan on Tuesday.

Vorm wasn’t the only poor player in the team and some of our fans were really upset with the result.

How Football Stars Influence Success of Their Teams

Published

on

Football and marketing are closely intertwined, that’s why so many stars are tidbits not only because of their sports skills, but also thanks to their popularity among fans.It is enough to have a look at how the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo changed the position of Turin Juventus in social media. The number of subscribers and views increased by several million. It is obvious that the Portuguese’s personal fans continue to follow him now, when he is the member of the Old Lady. It is also confirmed by the fact that the first home game of Madrid Real set an anti-record in terms of attendance — the stadium was packed with less than 50% audience.

Juventus has received notable profits not only due to the increase in the number of subscribers, but also thanks to selling T-shirts with Ronaldo name on them. They were sold out in a blink of an eye. However, this is a good example of how the team won from such a transfer. We are not taking into consideration that during the first games Cristiano did not realize his full potential. However, it can be clearly seen that he is doing his best, and results will definitely follow.

have become a real goal for the giants who aspire not only to add a strong player to their lineup, but also to get a media person whose T-shirts are well sold. Such situation in the team sport is unlikely to lead to anything good, because it is not or any other individual discipline. In football, mutual understanding on the field is important, not the number of stars playing on it.

Marketing Success of Clubs

When it comes to the marketing success of clubs, Manchester United comes to mind instantly. Here, we can give an example of Angel Di Maria, who was introduced to much fanfare, and fans had high hopes for him. On the field, the Argentinean showed himself extremely unconvincingly, but quickly redeemed his transfer thanks to T-shirts selling. MU had the similar situation with Alexis Sanchez, who can not find his game yet, but his merchandise is very popular.

It seems that the management of the Red Devils is quite satisfied with this development of events, while the results on the football field leave much to be desired. However, there are a lot of examples of how the player’s transfer was successful for both the media and the sport. Among the latter we can name the following transfers:

  •        Neymar;
  •        Mbappe;
  •        Salah.

They fully justified the money spent and helped their teams to make profit on the related merchandise. However, the destructive influence of the market is becoming more and more noticeable, therefore we run the risk of facing a situation where clubs will not buy players, but stars for the media.

Tottenham could inaugurate new stadium with high-voltage match against Chelsea in November

Published

on

The Sun reports that Tottenham’s new stadium could be ready for the clash against Chelsea on 24th November.

Tottenham released a statement confirming that the game against Manchester City would be pushed to 29th October but added that the stadium could be ready in time.

However, the match against the Cityzens will take place at Wembley while the home matches in the Champions League would also be played at the same stadium.

The report from the Sun further claims that even if our stadium is ready for the knockout phase of the competition, we might have to stick to playing at Wembley due to an article in the competition rules which states:

“In principle, a club must play all its matches in the competition at one and the same venue.”

Chelsea clash would be difficult for the police and clubs

The Sun claims that Tottenham are set to inaugurate their new home with an explosive tie against London rivals Chelsea.

Tottenham expected to host Liverpool at their new ground on 15th September but issues with safety systems shelved those plans.

The clash against City had to be moved by a day too as Wembley will host an NFL game on 28th October, as per the Sun.

The report adds that opening the stadium with a clash against the Blues would not be ideal for the police or the clubs.

Work continues round the clock at Tottenham’s new home and a YouTube channel shared a time-lapse video of all the happenings around the ground from 26th August to 1st September.

The time-lapse video starts with an outside view as we see numerous cranes and staff working on the roof of our new home.

Some shots also provided a glimpse of what the stadium would look with the lights on. Another angle of the stadium exterior highlighted that some of the glass panes haven’t been installed yet.

Tottenham had initially claimed that we would face Liverpool in our new home on 15th September but a report from the Daily Mail claims we could see a launch in 2019.

A view of the inside highlighted that the installation of the pitch is yet to be completed and some sections have dark blue seats set up.

However, we do see a lot of work being done in the interiors.

Cranes are seen on the pitch while the LED lights across the seating area are being tested too. The final segment provides another view of constant work being done throughout the night as the team tries to get the stadium ready as quickly as possible.
