The Israeli supporters' trust movement (yes, there is such a thing!) is part of a growing
network promoting sustainable clubs through community and fan ownership across Europe. As many will
know, Supporters Direct the body responsible for growing much of this network began a decade ago in
Word out of Israel today is that the Wizards are offering a trial to former Israeli youth
international, Rami Duani. Since turning pro in 2006, Duani has played for Hapoel Tel Aviv but has
gone out on loan the past few years to Hapoel Kfar Saba and Maccabi Ahi Nazareth. Duani is a big
defender, standing almost 6'3".
While most people have jumped aboard the Jose Mourinho or the Louis van Gaal boat prior to
today's big clash, that wasn't always the case. In fact, only about a dozen of you out of 50
predicted that Bayern or Inter would win the Champions League back in the quarterfinals with our
"Top of the League Tourney".
If Tuesday's Champions League was the wildly unpredictable and younger older sibling, Tuesday's was
the safer, more mature, more conservatively dressed older brother. The first grouping of games was
full of mischief and slightly stunning scorelines, and the second matchups have everybody thinking
"I knew that would happen why didn't I bet on it?
German giants Bayern Munich completed an unbelievable comeback to qualify for the knockout stages
of the Champions League at the expense of Juventus. Bayern were six points behind Juventus with two
games to play, and their win against Maccabi, coupled with Juve's loss to Bordeaux, meant that
Bayern could qualify for the Champions League only [.
Juventus were sensationally knocked out of the Champions League Tuesday when Bayern Munich
scored three second-half goals to beat Juventus 4-1 in Turin. With the win Bayern progress to the
knockout round of the Champions League and Juventus are sent to the Europa League.
"You could say that Juventus was bad, but you could also say that Bayern Munich was very good,"
Bayern coach Louis Van Gaal said.
Ultima chiamata. Stasera si decideranno le sorti di molte squadre impegnate in Champions League.
Tra queste, un'attenzione speciale va riservata, senza dubbio, alle italiane, attese da gare molto
importanti. Gi√ qualificata la Fiorentina, a caccia del pass, questa sera, Milan e Juventus. I
bianconeri di Ciro Ferrara avranno il compito di trovare almeno un pareggio nella partita casalinga
contro il Bayern Monaco che ha, invece, bisogno del successo per poter brindare alla
Champions League View: Liverpool are dumped to the Europa League, and one of Bayern
Munich and Juventus will join them tonight.
It's official the big sides aren't having it all their way this season in Europe already we've
seen Arsenal struggle at home, Liverpool struggle home and away, United drop points, Barcelona lose
at home, Inter making a mockery out of their status as Serie A champions and German giants Bayern
Munich with one foot already in the Europa League.
The most interesting match of tomorrows round of the Champions League has to be the clash between
Juventus Torino and Bayern Munchen. Why is it so important? First of all these two teams have great
history in the competition, Juve have won the competition 2 times, 1985 and 1996, and Bayern won it
no less than 4 times: 1974, 1975, 1976 and 2001.
The set-and-finish own goal is one of extreme rarity, such that it should have its own show on
some science channel. To deflect a ball into the net is one thing, but a composed boot, if shanked?
That's truly special stuff.
The gentleman in question is Ashraf Soliman of Maccabi Umm al-Fahm.
Ricardo Quaresma deu hoje espect√°culo em Telavive com dois portentosos golos que garantiram o
triunfo ao Besiktas frente ao Maccabi. Primeiro, j√° em tempo de compensa√ß√£o do primeiro tempo
atirou uma bomba de primeira ao √Ęngulo superior direito. Depois, quando a partida caminhava para o
final com um empate a duas bolas, o extremo formado no Sporting "lembrou-se" de tirar tr√™s
advers√°rios do caminho e fazer o 2-3 final.
As you walk into CenturyLink Field tonight take a moment to look around. No, there won't be
50,000 people there like many of us had hoped, but there should be at least 35,000. Another U.S.
Open Cup attendance record is guaranteed to fall and the Seattle Sounders will have once again
raised the bar.
As has been previously described on the PSP, the friendly has historically been an important
opportunity for the transmission of new football tactics. It's also a great way for clubs and
federations to make some money and for hitherto unknown players to be seen by top clubs. From the
fan's perspective, the friendly is often a rare opportunity to see top flight international soccer
and also serves as an important community builder, whether those communities are ethnic groups that
identify with particular international clubs or the soccer community as a whole.
