This has to be the luckiest most bizarre penalty ever

Haha, does this really count? I'm not familiar with those rules. I guess since it didn't go out of field of play and there was no second touch after the shot, then the ball bouncing in still counted.

It does 100% count. You are correct, it didn't go out of play, the ball was still moving and the taker didn't second touch the ball.

Very amateurish by the keeper.

Lol yeah Mana is right, but to be fair to the keeper if I was in goal and it cannoned off the bar, I'd think that was the end of it :D

who is this Rhian Brewster? seems like a very good prospect, he´s scoring for fun at the under 17 World Cup and helped England reach the final, it seems we had him in our ranks, another one that got away? to Liverpool of all teams, will we dread this one?

Christ, I hate that club.  A common phrase is that no player is bigger than the club.  LFC think that they're bigger than everything.

Looks like its not only T'Boas dad and Willians daughter that cant keep their noses out of footballing business (IF this is true of course. She might be putting her hands up to stop her hubby from getting in the shit)

It sounds with the after game Kovacic interview that hes very happy here and Sarri made him feel wanted and needed and is making all the right noises about us being his future. Well I hope thas right cause even tho right now Modric is still brillians and fit hes on that wrong side of 30 and we cant trust RM at all.

Ten years of demographic analysis of
the football players’ labour market in Europe

CIES Football Observatory Monthly Report

n°39 - November 2018

http://www.football-observatory.com/IMG/sites/mr/mr39/en/

1. Introduction

The long-term work carried out within the CIES Football Observatory focuses, in particular, on the demographic analysis of the football players’ labour market. It is with pride that we are able to provide an overview of the principle changes observed over the past decade.

The study covers three areas: training (club-trained players), migration (expatriate footballers) and mobility (players having changed team during the year). The sample is made up of teams having participated in 31 top division leagues of UEFA member associations between 2009 and 2018.

To be included, a player had to be present on the 1st of October in the first team squad of the clubs analysed. Moreover, he must have already played in domestic league games during the current season or, this being not the case, to have played matches in adult championships during each of the two preceding seasons (B-teams not included). The second and third goalkeepers have been taken into account in all cases.

2. Training

In accordance with the UEFA definition, club-trained players are those having spent at least three seasons between 15 and 21 years of age in the employer team. The proportion of this category of footballers has never been as low as on the 1st of October 2018: 16.9% (-6.3% in ten years). The decrease observed during the last year has been the greatest ever recorded (-1.6%). The average annual drop has increased from 0.37% between 2009 and 2013 to 1.02% between 2014 and 2018.

A decrease was observed all over the continent. Northern and Central Europe remain the zones with the highest proportion of club-trained footballers. However, a sharp decline was also observed since 2009: -8.8% and -8.4% respectively. In all areas, the values measured in 2018 are the lowest ever recorded. Southern Europe has the lowest overall value (12.8%).
