Copa del Rey preview — Real Madrid vs. Barcelona — Graham Hunter

Mourinho’s “Por que, por que, por que” rant, in which he seemed on the verge of blaming everyone from John Wilkes Booth to Mother Theresa for how referees treated his team, was the low point of the 12 Jose-versus-Pep contests we have seen between Barca on one hand and Inter or Real Madrid on the other.

But for many born-and-bred Madrilenos and Madridistas, the unpardonable sin was renouncing attack, verve and ambition in the 0-2 Champions League semifinal defeat at the Bernabeu last season.The concept of defense that day was to deploy as the seek-and-destroy attack dog in midfield, cede possession to Barca and play rope-a-dope until the Spanish champions tired so that they could be picked off by a couple of fresh subs. “It’s like having my brother in the dressing room.

What caught my attention was when Xavi addressed the media Sunday in the aftermath of Barca making hard work of beating a bold and inventive Real Betis side 4-2 in one of the best matches of the season. He played sparingly from January onward and suffered a relapse on the eve of the Champions League final. But that’s the groove I’m in right now.

The Copa del Rey has paired holder Real Madrid CF and FC Barcelona again, this time in the quarterfinals, just as it did for an epic, bruising and ultimately deeply significant final in April.Los Blancos won that night at the Mestalla, and I, for one, was hugely pleased for one of football’s all-time greats, Iker Casillas, after he finally lifted the trophy that had eluded him for so long.

Now we can enjoy two more Clasicos over the next eight days with all the operatic drama they unerringly present. It’s the credo he has been taught since before he was a teenager during thousands of training hours in futbol base (youth football) at FC Barcelona — and which, to be fair, is something that has come naturally to him while playing football as a kid in Placa del Progres, Terrassa.

For Barcelona, there have been many times, particularly under Pep Guardiola, when that ethos has soaringly, shiningly proven its efficacy. The essence of Xavi’s thinking was borne out: If you maintain the ball, using it to jab and torment, the opponent will succumb 99 times out of 100. The three best games of his reign when playing Barca, strangely, do not include the only time he has won (the Copa del Rey final). used the ball to tire and then toy with Madrid.

Over to the Special One. Ditto Wembley 2011. We get together for lunch or dinner. So it’s healthy to report that the buildup to these games has been significantly less provocative, angry and accusatory.

It never happened.

From that moment on, Mourinho has patently learned something. Carles is an example for young and old alike. Let’s not make any bones about that.

Last season, the return of Carles Puyol against Madrid from a long injury that eventually required knee surgery was little short of heroic. Although Karim Benzema has scored three times in his past three Clasicos, it’s a mystery to me why Higuain, a leader, a fighter and a scorer, has only “enjoyed” 72 minutes of the past 270 against Barca.

Should Puyol play, Pique, for one, will be delighted. All that has deepened our defensive partnership to the extent that we just need to exchange a look and we understand what to do. He’s been captain for a long time, which is a pressurized position in a club like this. Join

For Madrid, the best form of defense has to be attack. No, the 1-1 Champions League second-leg match in Barcelona that Madrid could easily have won, plus the 2-2 and 3-2 Spanish Supercup games, are the encounters in which Madrid was bold, pressed and harassed as the players streamed forward with attacking hunger.

In Spanish, they call it “tu a tu.” In English, we’d say “me and you,” or “going toe to toe.”

But Barcelona has to defend old-school-style, too. Our chemistry has always been good and our friendship goes way beyond the dressing room. “We just need to exchange a look and we understand what to do,” says his center-back partner Gerard Pique. At the Bernabeu last month, Guardiola’s team used its default style to first blunt and then destroy Real Madrid after falling behind to the fastest goal in Clasico history.

[+] EnlargeCarles Puyol

Javier Soriano/Getty ImagesCarles Puyol helped his side defeat Real Madrid 3-1 in the league in December. Mourinho needs to screw his courage to the sticking point and stay true to the Real Madrid philosophy — it’s time to attack, use intelligence, to produce secret reserves of mental and physical energy and to test whether the defensive flaws Barcelona showed in its past two matches were a blip or a pattern.

Just before two teams that have already scored 203 competitive goals between them this season do battle once again, it might seem strange to talk about defense rather than glory in their extravagant attacking power. “He [Puyol] has had a huge influence over me,” Pique says. The first one is Wednesday at the Santiago Bernabeu, and the return leg is Jan.

The two strikers are approaching 25 goals between them despite alternating as first choice for months. Can he really afford to ignore the maxim that attack is the best form of defense? Can he really afford another flop against Barcelona? We shall see. 25 at Camp Nou.

Although I have never been afraid to admit that some of the ill will between the sides is important to make the dish nice and spicy, there are limits — limits that I believe Jose Mourinho, Pepe and Marcelo ignored last season. Gonzalo Higuain was largely unavailable to Mourinho last season because of injury, but he looked effective in the Champions League and had a good goal disallowed. But that should have no influence this week. Over the past week, both Espanyol (1-1) and Real Betis (4-2) have shown that if you really give Guardiola’s men a chasing, close them down high up the pitch, produce endless energy and play with intelligence, you can both score, and — given Madrid’s quality of footballers — even win.

No doubt, Barcelona almost always raises its game on arrival in the vicinity of the Santiago Bernabeu, and no doubt that a month ago, Madrid ended up looking like a pale and pathetic shadow against the Spanish and European champions. You can reach him on Twitter at twitter.com/BumperGraham. In Rome against Manchester United, Barca made good on Sir Alex Ferguson’s prophecy that they can “kill you with their passing” while winning the 2009 Champions League.

After Barca weathered Madrid’s impressive storm that fell just short of being perfect, Lionel Messi & Co. But in April and May, Puyol ushered his team through two draws plus a victory over Real Madrid in the space of 16 days.

Some of the cosseting Puyol has needed this season, being used irregularly, has been the bill to pay for how vital his partnership with Gerard Pique was last spring.

So if Puyol doesn’t take the field alongside Pique on Wednesday night, then either he is injured or Guardiola cares a great deal less about the Copa del Rey than about La Liga or the Champions League. We will try to dominate possession — keeping the ball is the best defense which exists.”

Obviously, Xavi means that sincerely. It’s in the center-back position where Pepe does his best work. Things ran out of control.

Secondly, Pepe and Sergio Ramos are a rapid and effective defensive pairing. . As the little Catalan maestro turned to face yet another Madrid episode in his extraordinary career, he said: “We will go to the Bernabeu and try to be the main protagonists in the match.

SES Half Year 2015 Results

Dollar. Such forward-looking statements are based on numerous assumptions regarding SES and its subsidiaries and affiliates, present and future business strategies and the environment in which SES will operate in the future and such assumptions may or may not prove to be correct. While the existing communications traffic on these satellites remains unaffected, the nature and extent of these anomalies have resulted in a reduction of five transponders on NSS-6 which cannot now be commercialised. U.S. The expanded capacity will support SkyStreams growing customer base in both the maritime and oil and gas sectors. (NYSE Paris:SESG) (LuxX:SESG) reports financial results for the six months ended 30 June 2015. International markets grew 14% to 75 million TV households, while SESs market penetration also increased in both Europe and North America.

O3b Networks

O3b Networks, in which SES has a 45% interest, has made a productive start to its first full year of commercial operations.

Satellite health

Exposure to in-orbit failures is a risk faced by all satellite operators.

SESs Video business in Europe has continued to develop, with further increases in technical reach (from 151million to 154 million TV households) and additional growth in HD TV channels.

Participants are invited to call one of the following numbers five minutes prior to this time.

While SESs global profile delivered a strong translation benefit from the stronger U.S. Dollar to overall group revenue, which more than offsets the pricing and volume pressure on certain contracts, principally in the data vertical. At constant FX, EBITDA was down 2.5% compared with H1 2014 as lower revenue was offset by a 3.0% reduction in operating expenses to EUR 259.1 million. In April, SES, along with various major television and broadcast partners, created a full end-to-end UHD transmission and delivered three days of UHD broadcasts to a cable system. Following this success, SES launched a first demonstration UHD channel for North America.

SES has continued to grow its Video business globally.

SES is well positioned to capture the growing customer demand for satellite-enabled solutions in the future digital ecosystem. Looking to the future, SES is continuing to focus on accelerating towards the important new horizons for building sustainable future growth. During the period, SES secured a long-term contract to broadcast BBC World News in HD. Government budget sequester remains a factor in the International segment, where the decline in contract renewals was not offset by new hosted payload programmes, as was the case in the North American segment. The contract includes construction of the payload, launch on SES-15 (H1 2017) and 11 years of on-orbit operations. The demonstration, which included a mix of pre-recorded and live content, was the first ever live and linear UHD broadcast to a cable system. In June 2015, StarTimes contracted additional capacity on SES-5 to provide an enhanced TV viewing experience in Africa where SES now reaches seven million TV households (up from one million a year ago).

.

In developing markets, rapid expansion of TV households combined with growing penetration of HD TV represents a significant growth opportunity over the medium to longer term.

REGIONAL MARKETS

SESs market penetration in video has continued to develop positively.

In June 2015, O3b completed a successful paid trial with the U.S. This reflects the combination of reduced operating expenses, depreciation and net financing costs on a constant FX basis.

SESs global fleet is also an increasingly important facilitator for the growing number of NGD applications.

During the period, O3b continued to grow and expand its customer base, securing agreements with Bharti Airtel, SpeedCast International Limited, Telesom, Presta Bist and the Papua New Guinea University of Technology. Government budget sequester.

International

International revenue increased 13.9% as reported to EUR 292.7 million. The backlog benefited from a number of new contracts and renewals secured across SESs three regional segments and four key market verticals (Video, Fixed Data, Mobility and Government). The recent strength of the U.S. Dollar on cash generation, as well as other movements in working capital.

Profit after tax of EUR 340.0 million was 13.9% higher than the prior year period. SES also signed client agreements for three additional UHD channels, with the relevant announcements to follow in the coming months. The capacity will support KVHs expansion of its high speed Internet connectivity and Voice over IP services to private, commercial and government vessels along the eastern coast of North America, as well as in the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. Revenue was 2.6% lower at constant FX, principally due to the lower level of outright transponder sales to Eutelsat (as part of the comprehensive agreement signed in January 2014) and the impact of the terms of theAMC-15/AMC-16 capacity renewal agreements with EchoStar for the period prior to the in-service date of SES-11 (due to be launched at the end of 2016).

OUTLOOK AND GUIDANCE

Market outlook

HD TV penetration is continuing to drive channel growth and capacity demand in developed markets. In addition to a growing demand for civilian applications (e.g.

Since 30 June 2014, the total number of TV channels broadcast over the SES fleet grew by 7.4% to 6,963 channels.

In March 2015, KVH Industries, a leading global manufacturer of maritime connections solutions, contracted 36MHz of Ku-band capacity on board SES-4.

Net operating cash flow increased 45.8% to EUR 784.4 million. Our HD TV channels grew by a further 13.9% and SES recently signed Europes first commercial Ultra HD channel. No other reduction in commercial capacity occurred on other fleet assets during the period.

SESs Government business is growing in 2015, including the benefit of the two hosted payload contracts and their front-end revenue recognition, as well as other recent new business gains.

In May 2015, SES secured a multi-year contract to broadcast Europes first commercial free-to-air UHD channel. In addition, SES will provide teleport services from Luxembourg.

The service provides high-bandwidth and low-latency connectivity using a current constellation of 12 Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) HTS satellites. The groups average debt maturity has been significantly extended to 8.5 years (30 June 2014: 6.4 years), due to the benefit of recent financing activities. Government budget sequestration on existing contract renewals, and the transition of capacity contracted by ARSAT to its own satellite. Dollar. Dollar more than offset a reduction in depreciation of 2.2% at constant FX.

The income tax expense of EUR 59.1 million (H1 2014: EUR 53.7 million) represented an effective tax rate of 14.8% (H1 2014: 15.2%).

The groups expectations for Full Year 2015 revenue and EBITDA progression have also been impacted by the delay in the launch of SES-9 from Q2 2015 as originally expected, as well as a reduction in the number of available transponders for future revenue generation due to satellite health degradation. SESs expectations for EBITDA margin are unchanged at above 82% for the infrastructure business and between 14% and 18% for the services businesses. These were further augmented by the translation benefits of the stronger U.S.

As a result of these factors, Full Year 2015 revenue is projected to be around 3% lower and EBITDA is projected to be around 3.5% lower than the prior year on a constant FX basis, although growing on a reported basis. A revised launch date for SES-9 is still to be confirmed. The U.S.

SES is continuing to build for future growth by developing differentiated capabilities, allowing SES to optimally serve a wide range of customer requirements across four attractive and growing market verticals.

SESs Full Year 2015 earnings on a constant FX basis will benefit from management of operating expenses, depreciation and net financing costs, as well as a low effective tax rate. As a result, SESs global fleet now carries over 25% of the worlds HD TV channels broadcast over satellite the highest number of any operator. X2nSat is an established provider of Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) networks in North America.

As disclosed by O3bs Management during SESs Investor Day (17 June 2015), these positive developments have contributed to a growth of 48% in O3bs contract backlog since July 2013 to USD 530 million at June 2015. The company is continuing to build on its long-standing relationships with major global organisations, governments and institutions. The channel is broadcast over SES-3 at 103 degrees West and will allow cable TV operators to prepare and test their networks for UHD trials. Adjusting for these events, group revenue was slightly ahead of H1 2014 (at constant FX) with growth in European services and new infrastructure business being offset by the impact of U.S. EchoStar has renewed the majority of capacity on these satellites, while SES Government Solutions (SES GS) is already commercialising some of the remaining capacity.

TELECONFERENCE A call for investors and analysts will be hosted at 14:00 CEST on 24 July 2015. This included a 13.2% increase in depreciation and amortisation expense to EUR 290.1 million, where the impact of the stronger U.S. The free-to-air international news channel is being broadcast from the 19.2 degrees East orbital position. SES has an effective in-orbit back-up strategy to mitigate these risks and several of these spacecraft are due to be replaced by future satellites which have already been procured. Adjusting for these events, group revenue was slightly ahead of H1 2014 (at constant FX) with growth in European services and new infrastructure business being offset by the impact of U.S. SES-11, which is due to be launched in Q4 2016, will replace the Ku-band capacity on AMC-15 utilised by EchoStar. This is complemented at MEO by SESs 45% interest in O3b, whose constellation of 12 HTS satellites provides additional differentiating capabilities to optimally serve next generation data requirements.

Financial guidance

The business has continued to develop steadily during the first half of 2015, notably benefiting from new infrastructure business, continued growth in European services and new hosted payload agreements.

These two new hosted payload contracts have been an important contributor to SES GSs first half performance. The 19.2 degrees East orbital position was also used for a test broadcast of the Champions League final produced by UEFA in UHD on 6 June 2015.

During the period, a further power degradation was noted on AMC-15, a satellite primarily contracted by EchoStar. Without prejudice to the foregoing, none of SES or its directors, officers or advisors accept any liability whatsoever for any loss however arising, directly or indirectly, from use of this presentation or its contents or otherwise arising in connection therewith. Dollars and invoicing in local currencies. The Wide Area Augmentation Systems (WAAS) hosted payload will enhance the Global Positioning System (GPS) by improving its accuracy, integrity and availability. SESs global infrastructure coverage is complemented by Services businesses, such as SES Platform Services, which provide additional value-added products to support customers throughout the video value chain. On a constant FX basis, this represented a decline of 5.6% compared with H1 2014.

This presentation includes forward-looking statements. Eutelsat has also contracted a further eight transponders on ASTRA 2G on a long-term basis. The additional capacity powers X2nSats new generation ST4G broadband solution which serves as the primary business continuity platform for a range of industries, from businesses using machine-to-machine and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) networks through to mission-critical healthcare systems. In February 2015, LuxGovSat procured SES-16/GovSat to provide dedicated military frequencies for governmental and institutional requirements over Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

In the near term, SES will benefit from the added capabilities to provide data customers with more efficient and affordable bandwidth via a global HTS platform (comprising SES-12, SES-14 and SES-15). In July 2015, Sky Deutschland signed an additional capacity agreement for UHD broadcasts. Market reach in the International segment grew by 14% to 75 million TV households. Of around 40 committed clients, 25 are now live on the system and benefiting from O3bs unique fibre in the sky offering. SES operates a number of satellites that are susceptible to solar array circuit failures.

SESs share of joint ventures and associates result was a loss of EUR 63.0 million for the six months ended 30 June 2015. StarTimes provides English-language video content to over five million subscribers across 26 African countries and will use the additional capacity to provide additional high-quality content as part of its Direct to Home (DTH) package. Revenue was 2.6% lower at constant FX, principally due to the lower level of outright transponder sales under the comprehensive agreement with Eutelsat and the impact of the terms of theAMC-15/AMC-16 capacity renewal agreements with EchoStar up to the launch of SES-11 (due in Q4 2016). Enstyle GmbH, the parent company of pearl.tv, will continue to broadcast in Standard Definition (SD) and HD and has also contracted SES Platform Services to manage the technical operations of the UHD broadcast.

Navys Seventh Fleet as part of Trident Warrior 2015. This is increasingly so for aircraft and maritime vessels where satellite represents the sole practical method of connectivity.

SES GS also secured a five-year contract with the University of Colorado to host a NASA-funded payload on SES-14 (H2 2017). Growth from new capacity agreements in video was offset principally by the beginning of the transition of capacity contracted by ARSAT on AMC-6 to its own satellite.

Reported EBITDA increased 6.7% to EUR 740.0 million. The benefit of a EUR 3.7 million (or 3.6%) reduction in net interest expense was offset by lower capitalised interest. Dollar in Fixed Data, and reduced capacity available to serve this vertical. GEE is already using Ku-band capacity on SESs existing satellite fleet.

Increased use of more bandwidth-intensive applications by government agencies are a further source of growth.

During the period, SES achieved further important milestones in accelerating the commercial introduction of Ultra High Definition (UHD).

Growth in utilisation was particularly strong during Q2 2015, during which a further 30 net transponders were contracted and evenly spread across SESs three geographic segments. Government budget sequester on the level of renewals for existing contracts, which remains challenging. The impacts of the power degradation noted on AMC-8 and AMC-10 remain under review. In February, SES established a third UHD demonstration channel broadcast via ASTRA 2E at 28.2 degrees East. These forward-looking statements speak only as at the date of this presentation. These capabilities include SESs unique combination of GEO (wide beam and HTS) and MEO HTS (through the investment in O3b Networks), as well as the ability to provide a range of value-added services in addition to satellite-enabled infrastructure solutions.

European revenue also included the full contribution in the period of the second European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) payload hosted on the ASTRA 5B satellite and managed by the European Commission. The new network remotely manages and monitors virtually every phase of the operational ecosystem, from exploration vessels and drilling well sites to pipelines and production. Following the transfer of NSS-7 into inclined orbit (-74transponders), the satellite continues to carry traffic in inclined operation, for which capacity pricing is lower than for station-kept operations.

No representation or warranty, express or implied, is or will be made by SES, its directors, officers or advisors or any other person as to the accuracy, completeness or fairness of the information or opinions contained in this presentation, and any reliance you place on them will be at your sole risk. Airbus Space and Defence will utilise capacity on SES-5, with the potential to take additional Ku-band capacity on ASTRA 2G, ASTRA 4A and NSS-12. Central Command (USCENTCOM) area of operation. The higher bandwidth needed to support higher quality content (especially Ultra HD) will be a favourable demand driver as this market develops, even as more efficient compression technologies are employed to facilitate their introduction. Investment in new satellite programmes contributed to the increase in investing activities.

In April, SES GS agreed a 14-year contract with Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems to host a payload on board SES-15 on behalf of the U.S. SES is continuing to monitor these developments closely in line with the groups overall approach to foreign currency management. SESs financial guidance assumes nominal satellite health and launch schedule. The reduction in Fixed Data was due to the impact of the stronger U.S. The Global-Scale Observations of the Limb and Disk (GOLD) mission will, for the first time, allow scientists to analyse the Suns impact on the Earths thermosphere and ionosphere from a geostationary orbit. Government spending is expected to remain constrained over the remainder of 2015, while trending towards stabilisation.

In April 2015, SES GS secured a one-year task order, with four one-year option periods, to provide 288 MHz (equivalent to eight 36 MHz transponder equivalents) of Ku-band capacity to support forces deployed to the U.S. SESs technical reach (confirmed by the annual SES Satellite Monitor which was published in February) grew to 312 million TV households, representing a 7% increase compared with a year ago.

SES is becoming a prominent enabler for the acceleration of UHD in North America.

This was followed (in March 2015) by an agreement with X2nSat, which has doubled the Ku-band capacity that they are using on SES-2. The government business has continued to see lower renewal rates on existing business as a consequence of the U.S.

SES has continued to develop its Government business in Europe during 2015, notably with the investment in LuxGovSat, a jointly incorporated entity of SES and the Luxembourg Government.

SESs commitment to developing its presence in the Mobility vertical was boosted in March 2015, when Global Eagle Entertainment (GEE) contracted Ku-band wide-beam and High Throughput Satellite (HTS) spot-beam capacity aboard SES-12, SES-14 and SES-15.

HIGHLIGHTS

Development of a global business delivering strong growth in revenue and net profit

Revenue of EUR 999.1 million, up 6.4% (-2.6% at constant FX1) over prior year period Video, Mobility and Government revenues growing, with reduction in Fixed Data EBITDA of EUR 740.0 million, up 6.7% (-2.5% at constant FX) EBITDA margin of 74.1% (H1 2014: 74.0% at constant FX) Profit after tax up 13.9% to EUR 340.0 million; Net operating cash flow up 45.8% to EUR 784.4 million Full Year 2015 growth expectations lowered to around -3% for revenue and around -3.5% for EBITDA at constant FX, mainly due to impact of stronger U.S. These positive developments are being largely offset by the on-going impact of the U.S. Fully diluted earnings per share are insignificantly different from basic earnings per share. GEE will take advantage of the combined coverage over North and South America, the Atlantic Ocean, Western Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific to deliver in-flight connectivity and services for commercial airlines.

Europe

European revenue was EUR 512.4 million (down 0.5% as reported and down 0.3% at constant FX). Dollar on customers that buy capacity in U.S. As a result, reported EBITDA margin improved to 74.1% compared with 73.9% as reported (74.0% at constant FX).

Forthcoming launches

Over the next three years, SES will launch seven new satellites which will increase available capacity by 180net transponders, or 12% of total available capacity, while capacity in the International segment will grow by 21%. Three of these satellites (SES-12, SES-14 and SES-15) will also carry a total of 36 GHz of HTS capacity.

Utilisation

Compared with H1 2014, available capacity on SESs global satellite fleet reduced by 12 transponders (or 0.8%) to 1,518 total transponders, reflecting several fleet movements. Dollars but invoice in local currencies.

SES now broadcasts UHD demonstration channels across Europe using three orbital positions (19.2 degrees East, 28.2 degrees East and 5 degrees East). The benefit of a EUR 3.7 million (or 3.6%) reduction in net interest expense was offset by lower capitalised interest. Consumer demand for higher quality content and an enhanced viewing experience will also help to accelerate the introduction of Ultra HD as an important catalyst for medium-term growth. The services businesses are an important differentiator and an increasingly essential part of SESs core infrastructure offering, delivering added value for customers and generating incremental capacity sales (pull through). Dollar.

Net profit attributable to SESs shareholders was EUR 275.4 million (H1 2014: EUR 290.9 million), which represented earnings per share of EUR 0.68 (H1 2014: EUR 0.72). Forward-looking statements contained in this presentation regarding past trends or activities should not be taken as a representation that such trends or activities will continue in the future.

Second, we are building differentiating capabilities in four market verticals where satellite has a clear right-to-win. NSS-6 currently operates at 95 degrees East and is due to be replaced by SES-12, which will be launched in H2 2017.

In March 2015, Airbus Defence and Space announced a multi-year capacity agreement with SES to deliver managed satellite communication services for corporate customers in the mining, energy and humanitarian sectors.

Pep Guardiola battling perception at Bayern Munich

As he has conceded in the past, there are other managers who are much better at manipulating the media. And because he’s at Bayern, where winning the league is seen as the bare minimum rather than an outright triumph, there’s no obvious way in which he can do much about it.

Coaches from all over the world continue to embark on a pilgrimage to Sbener Strasse so they may see him at work.

Football managers think in terms of problems, solutions and results. He is the disciple of Cruyff and Cruyff’s successor at Barcelona, Louis van Gaal, the two most important proponents of what can loosely be called combination football. Not an impossible task by any means, but at the same time, you can’t realistically plan on winning a couple of games in April or May against opposition of the same calibre. As Bayern started training ahead of the new season, he made what could be interpreted as an attempt to free himself from the pressure to live up to his image as a guy who must lift every piece of available silverware. He also writes for the Guardian. Others simply might have seen the results in Champions League semifinals and bought into the reductive narrative that he’s taken the 2013 treble winners down a notch. Without the echo chamber of the Premier League at his disposal, the Catalan will have to do something very special with Bayern in Europe to keep or reclaim his place in the perceived hierarchy of great coaches.. Twitter: @honigstein.

Bayern’s sporting director, Matthias Sammer, also went partly down that line, insisting that success in the cup competitions was dependent on too many variables to be talked about at this early stage. The select band of clubs where he could go next are big and smart enough to look beyond the clichs and focus on his actual coaching instead.

The people above and below him in Bavaria appreciate what he does. Tune back in next March to see whether they can pull it off.

The only option in that regard would involve Bayern winning the Champions League or at least getting to the final. As such, Guardiola is routinely portrayed as the tika-taka high priest, a man who’d rather see his team string together 100 passes sideways than score a goal from a quick counterattack.

The minuscule attention span of modern football has also resulted in people blanking out just how much of a washed-up, broken team Barca were in 2008 before Guardiola took over as a rookie. (And the cry of “Where’s Plan B?” goes out whenever they lose.)

Tactical evolution is to some extent always cyclical, and Guardiola’s el toque (the touching of the ball) carries faint echoes of Pal Csernai’s Bayern from the early 1980s, a team that unnerved the opposition by keeping the ball for prolonged spells in their own half. He recently told a Spanish audience that love, not titles, was most important from him and read poetry of the late Catalan writer Miquel Mart i Pol at a literary event in Munich.

The underlying message was “Winning isn’t everything,” or perhaps more accurately, “Winning everything isn’t everything.”

At the highest level, football has globalised to the point that it’s sheer nonsense to speak of “German” or “Spanish” styles between which Guardiola supposedly has to choose. (Going back even further, Bayern’s first championship, in 1932, was won by Richard Dombi, an Austrian coach versed in the Danube school of combination football.)

It takes tremendous fitness and motivation to play that way, especially as far as big names are concerned. His main battle will be more likely won or lost in the well-stacked Bayern dressing room, where egos need to be kept in check and muscles healthy. Whatever he does is soon copied.

New Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel even met with Guardiola last year and is expected to make Borussia’s high-energy, up-and-down style more sustainable by adding a touch of Pep to his own formula next season. Pep’s brand of football is technically and physically so demanding that only those in charge of elite sides can realistically hope to play the same way, but in Germany, where some have been keen to over-accentuate his flaws and mistakes, his influence is actually keener felt than ever before. Toning down the volume ahead of a campaign that could well be his last one at the Allianz Arena is certainly a smart move by Guardiola and the board, but this basic dilemma cannot be escaped that easily. All possession teams — Van Gaal’s Bayern, Jupp Heynckes’ Bayern in 2011-12 and Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal — can suffer when the opposition cede space in their own half and they are not on their game. (At some subconscious level, most star players tend to be not quite as enthusiastic when asked to perform defensively.) Passing, pressing and a high defensive line are not some lofty, aesthetic ideals that Guardiola aspires to, but rather three interdependent, necessary constituents of a style that took winning to new, mesmerizing levels during 2009-11.

Raphael Honigstein is ESPN FC’s German football expert and a regular guest on ESPN FC TV. You might get the odd philosophical musings and talk of “visions” thrown in for a bit of added mystique but, with the possible exception of Johan Cruyff, who has been able to convince half the world that his beautiful Netherlands were the “real” winners of the 1974 World Cup, even the most dogmatic of coaches are only employing tactics as a means to an end.

Alternatively, Guardiola might deduce that there’s simply no need to play this PR game anymore, even if winning on that front would make his life easier in the future. He and the team should have enough for one more big season together. Guardiola was unafraid to ax big names like Samuel Eto’o, Deco, Yaya Toure and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The dressing room was split, the main players spent their time off in nightclubs and the side looked like a pale imitation of the 2006 Champions League winners in subsequent European campaigns. His greatest achievement at Barcelona had little to do with breaking records for possession. The Catalans (and the Spanish national team under Luis Aragones) employed high, early and relentless pressing to devastating effect.

Take Pep Guardiola. As direct, counterattacking (or counter-counterattacking) football has become the norm in the Bundesliga, slower, more deliberate build-up will automatically become more valued again as an antidote.

Guardiola, it seems, is aware of that predicament. Equally, he showed no fear in promoting a relative “nobody” like Sergio Busquets, a player whose style and work rate better fit his blueprint.

Pep Guardiola arguably has struggled to adjust at Bayern while also reinventing himself as a manager.

Having won two championships, one DFB Cup, one Club World Cup and the European Super Cup, and having made two semifinal appearances in the Champions League with Bayern, the 44-year-old has provided a better return than any other top-level manager over the course of the past two seasons. German national team players, like captain Philipp Lahm, have been open about the way their game and the thinking of Joachim Low was in some ways shaped by Guardiola’s methods in the run-up to their 2014 World Cup win in Brazil.

What makes Guardiola, right, so influential is how he’s regarded by his peers. At your best, you’ll have a 60-40 shot, but no one can calculate the odds of you arriving at that moment in time in your best form.

Yet the reality has always been much more prosaic. But because success has mostly come in Germany with relative failure in Europe, the dynamics of perception have worked against Guardiola.

Tiki-taka, a term with negative connotations he abhors, incidentally, is not the ultimate aim but simply possession football gone very wrong, a team hogging the ball in the opposition half because it can’t find an opening or ample intensity in the one-on-ones to make a breakthrough. On the contrary, it was the manner in which he formed a bunch of very talented — but also slightly lightweight — performers into the best team in Europe without the ball

Health & Fitness :: Breakthrough Research on Modified Citrus Pectin Presented at Society for Integrative Oncology

This conference gave me the opportunity to discuss this new research with those who are most likely to share it with their medical colleagues, patients and students. Since Modified Citrus Pectin safely and powerfully addresses so many serious health concerns, it is an ideal tool in integrative medicine. It is my hope that the peer-reviewed research I presented has raised awareness about Galectin-3 and the importance of Modified Citrus Pectin in integrative oncology.

The Importance of an Integrative Approach

Modified Citrus Pectin as a Galectin-3 Blocker

Elevated Galectin-3 as a Biomarker of Disease. This is particularly true for integrative cancer therapy, where the disease must be attacked simultaneously from multiple angles. As more research continues on the role of Galectin-3 in a wide range of diseases, the usefulness of Modified Citrus Pectin will continue to grow as well, offering new hope to patients seeking safe and effective therapies for fighting disease and restoring health naturally. For more information about Modified Citrus Pectin, download a wellness guide at www.mcpreport.com.

Research Studies on Risk of Mortality with Elevated Galectin-3 Serum Levels

Over the last decade, a large body of peer-reviewed research has revealed that many serious health concerns are associated with elevated levels of Galectin-3 molecules. Modified Citrus Pectin – derived from citrus peels – is the only proven natural Galectin-3 inhibitor to address elevated Galectin-3 for cancer, metastasis and other chronic illnesses. My poster presentation included the following topics and research:

Galectin-3′s Role in Cancer Proliferation, Metastasis, Inflammation and Fibrosis

Galectin-3 and Overall Mortality

New Discoveries Offer New Hope

As a holistic physician focused on treating cancer and chronic illness, I have been using MCP in my clinical practice for more than 15 years. During my poster presentation, I had the opportunity to discuss the latest research on Galectin-3, the new FDA approved Galectin-3 blood test, and Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP). The theme of this year’s meeting is “Innovating Integrative Oncology: New Science, New Solutions; The Focus is the Patient.” More than 80 abstracts are presented, including my research on MCP and Galectin-3.

Research

Topics

These new discoveries give Modified Citrus Pectin greater potential in the prevention and treatment of many serious health conditions for which there are currently limited or no treatments available. The conference, held in Columbus, Ohio, brought together hundreds of top clinicians, researchers, patients and advocates to learn about new findings from diverse scientific disciplines that have the potential to transform cancer care. The significant interest generated by this breakthrough research signals the growing demand for successful, science-based integrative health solutions worldwide. By blocking Galectin-3?s cancer-promoting effects, reducing inflammation, chelating heavy metals, and providing powerful selective immune benefits, including active NK cell induction, MCP is quickly becoming known as one of the most important nutrients in the fight against cancer and other serious health conditions.

I was so pleased that my presentation was enthusiastically received by doctors, researchers and other health professionals from around the world. I recently shared a new breakthrough on Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) and the role of Galectin-3 in health and disease in a poster presentation during the 8th International Conference of the Society for Integrative Oncology.

Kobe Bryant’s wife files for divorce from Los Angeles Lakers star

“He and I will have to deal with that within our marriage, and we will do so. Bryant met his future wife in 1999 on a music video shoot when Vanessa Laine was 18 years old. They married on April 18, 2001.

The Bryants have been through trying times together.

“The Bryants have resolved all issues incident to their divorce privately with the assistance of counsel and a judgment dissolving their marital status will be entered in 2012,” according to a statement from a representative for the couple.

ORANGE, Calif. She held his hand and stroked it tenderly as the NBA star admitted he was guilty of adultery — but nothing else. Earlier she had issued her own statement to the media, vowing to stand by her husband.

In the filing, Vanessa Bryant asked for joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s two daughters, Natalia, 8, and Gianna, 5. 7 and it was filed Friday, according to the documents.

Vanessa Bryant appeared at a news conference with her husband when he was charged with sexually assaulting a 19-year-old woman who worked at the exclusive Lodge & Spa at Cordillera near Vail, Colo., in 2003. Six months later, she and the then-21-year-old Bryant became engaged. He is not a criminal.”

The Bryants “ask that in the interest of our young children and in light of the upcoming holiday season the public respect our privacy during this difficult time,” according to the statement.. 1. — Kobe Bryant’s wife, who stood by her husband when he was charged with sexual assault in 2003, filed for divorce on Friday from the Los Angeles Lakers star, citing irreconcilable differences after a decade of marriage.

A year later, prosecutors dropped the criminal charge against Kobe Bryant because the woman did not want to go ahead with a trial.

Last year, Kobe and Vanessa Bryant settled litigation with a former maid who accused the NBA star’s wife of harassment. Vanessa Bryant also requested spousal support.

“I know that my husband has made a mistake — the mistake of adultery,” she said in the statement at the time. The Bryants countersued Maria Jimenez for violating a confidentiality agreement by talking to reporters about the family.

Vanessa Bryant signed the papers on Dec. Kobe Bryant asked for the same in his response. Kobe Bryant signed his response on Dec

Marvin Hinton – Chelsea Football Club Legend

Peter Osgood scoring Chelsea’s goal from a left foot volley. In 1970 Chelsea were able to atone for the 1967 defeat by beating Leeds United.. Then in August 1963 he was signed by Chelsea Football Club for £30,000.

Leeds, who were the reigning League Champions and one of the best sides at the time, made it hard for Chelsea. A second goal from John Dempsey sealed victory for the west Londoners.

He made his debut for the club in a 3-1 win over Ipswich Town and went on to play his part in many of Chelsea’s successes in the 1960s and early ’70s. On 19th May 1971 they played a strong Real Madrid side in Athens and drew the match one all.

Marvin Hinton began his career with his local club, Charlton Athletic who were playing in the Second Division when he made his league debut during the 1957/1958 season. Two days Osgood scored again in the replayed final. But more success was to follow for the ‘Cup Kings of King’s Road’. He played along side the likes of Peter Bonetti, John Hollis, Bobby Tambling, Charlie Cooke, Alan Hudson and Peter Osgood and earned his first of three winners medals in the 1965 Football League Cup.

Two seasons later in the 1967 FA Cup he had to accept a runners-up medal when Chelsea were beaten by London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. At Charlton he made 131 appearances in the league and scored twice. Marvin Hinton and his team mates had to wait until the replay at Old Trafford to get their hands on the FA Cup. He now lives in Crawley and, during the season, can often be found supporting the club at Stamford Bridge.

As with previous season’s FA Cup campaign, Chelsea reached the final of the Cup Winners’ Cup. He played as a substitute in both finals, helping to earn the Cup and a place in the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup.

Although further success eluded the club during the 1970s, Marvin Hinton continued to play for Chelsea until 1976
