Scott Alcoholocaust, Legendary Bay Area Punk Promoter, Dies at 54
“Scott fought his illness with courage and humility, taking scheduled hikes around S.F. with friends he’d made along the way,” Fleshies drummer Brian Hamilton told KQED. “I can say that my life has been better for knowing him, and his contributions to music and community. He was genuine in his occupation. I admire that he picked something he loved and did it. His presence will be sorely missed but not forgotten.”
“He preferred the smaller D.I.Y. shows, the dive bars and the punk spots,” Dead and Gone vocalist Shane Baker told KQED. “That’s where the energy was and the fun for him. One thing that always struck me about him was his calm, methodical way of doing his thing. He might talk to you about a show when you were out and about, but he knew the importance of following up because memories are short, especially when everyone was out partying. He was incredibly organized and still had all his flyers and calendars going back decades.
“His tolerance, kindness, and love for the music and especially the people were essential,” Baker said. “When S.F.’s waves of gentrification hit, he still managed to nurture a fun, dirty, raw, and organic scene. His passing just as the pandemic is ending leaves a big hole. I wish he could have been here to make it happen again.”
Alcoholocaust first moved to San Francisco in 1988 from Nevada City. His booking career began seven years later under the moniker Alcoholocaust Presents, which became Depth Charge Presents in 2016. He is remembered for the generosity he showed others; frequently housing bands himself, and sharing mementos with loved ones and friends in the final year of his life.
“He hugged and thanked everybody,” San Francisco DJ Robert Góngora recalls. “He didn’t have to do that. Not many promoters do that. He would give you his shirt if you needed it and he didn’t ask for anything in return.”
For those who encountered him in a professional capacity, Alcoholocaust also stood out as singularly memorable in a sea of other promoters. Travis Hayes first encountered him while Hayes was working as a booker at Thee Parkside in 2010.
“He was one of the few outside promoters that [Thee Parkside] worked with,” Hayes tells KQED. “And every single band he ever worked with just loved him—not one of them ever had a bad word to say about him. There’s a lot to be said for that. I remember at one point, he was doing multiple shows at multiple venues on the same night. So he’d be running to Parkside from a day show at Bender’s, then running to the Knockout for a later show. He booked good shows, but he was only making tens of dollars per show. I honestly don’t know how he did it.”
Bryan Scott, ‘Aaron Rodgers of Division III,’ ready to prove himself worthy of NFL
Bryan Scott knows the importance of timing.
It’s part of his job as quarterback: not only helping him throw accurate passes to receivers, but also delivering them quickly enough so his offensive linemen don’t exert themselves more than they need on a given play.
It’s a simple, effective part of his play style, one achieved through talent and meticulous, years-long practice. But his greatest strength, Scott says, is how he elevates the play of those around him. That’s part of the reason the former Occidental College play-caller — once tabbed the “Aaron Rodgers of Division III” — has his sights set on the NFL.

“My goal is 100 percent to play in the NFL. And to play in the NFL, not just be a roster spot,” Scott told Sporting News. “It’s to play. And I believe in myself.”
Now, he’s waiting for that time when a team will give him that chance.
Scott was once a scrawny, 5-1 freshman at Palos Verdes High School (Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.), and only grew a few inches by the time he was a high school junior. But he hit a growth spurt as a senior, springing to 6-1. His height allowed him to compete for the first time for the starting quarterback position. He took full advantage, leading Palos Verdes to an 11-3 season and the 2012 Southern Section California Interscholastic Federation championship — its first such title in 47 years.
That very nearly was the last football season Scott ever played — if not for a chance encounter with his eventual college football coach.
“We won the state championship, and I was good. I was happy with it,” Scott said. “And I played in this all-star game, and my head coach from college (Doug Semones) actually ended up being there.
“And he came up to me and said, ‘Hey would you like to take a trip up to Occidental and visit?’ I said, ‘I don’t know. I’ve never heard of Occidental,’ Scott recalled of the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference school. “I went up there and I loved it. I went to their practice. It was kind of fate.”
In just the second game of his freshman season at Occidental, Scott was forced to step in after the starting quarterback was injured. He didn’t flinch under the circumstances: He flourished, earning second-team All-SCIAC selection and the conference’s newcomer of the year award.
Scott considered using his early success at Occidental to transfer to a larger, more visible program. Ultimately, he stayed with the team that gave him a chance.
Scott became a first-team all-conference selection in the 2015 and ’16 seasons, earning the SCIAC Player of the Year in the latter. That season, he also set conference records in career passing yards (9,073), completions (763) and total offense (9,475). He threw 77 touchdowns and 22 interceptions in 33 career collegiate games.
It was during this time that Scott earned the moniker “The Aaron Rodgers of DIII,” which he attributes in part to his quick release, accuracy and ability to extend plays with his feet.
“And I got a little fire in me too, out there on the field.”
Just 11 miles south of Occidental, at USC, Scott participated in the Trojans’ 2017 pro day. By then a respectable 6-2, 220 pounds, he threw to receivers such as future NFL star JuJu Smith-Schuster, completing 62 of 64 passes with one drop. He signed with the BC Lions of the CFL that April, but included a provision in his contract that he would be released if given the opportunity to earn a spot on an NFL roster.
That opportunity came on May 1, 2017, when first-year Rams coach Sean McVay invited Scott to participate in the team’s rookie minicamp.
At the time, Scott said, he was happy to be there. The hometown kid had been passed up in the 2017 NFL Draft and was “just excited to go out there and compete.” His tune changed by the end of camp.
“The biggest thing I took away from that, if I’m being honest, is that I felt like I could for sure play at that level,” Scott said. “I stepped in and it went really well. And to be honest with you, I think it might have shocked the Rams a little bit.”
Scott said the Rams called him the best quarterback at the camp, but an invitation to compete for their final 53-man roster never materialized. Scott turned his attention to The Spring League.
Bart Andrus had never heard of Bryan Scott before the 2018 Spring League in Austin, Texas. Andrus, one of four TSL head coaches in that year’s showcase, just happened to have him as one of his two quarterbacks. (The other was former Titans signal-caller Zach Mettenberger).
By the end of the event, the former Titans quarterbacks coach and CFL head coach considered Scott the best quarterback at the event. That includes Mettenberger and 2012 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. Moreover, Scott had demonstrated everything you want in an NFL quarterback: accuracy, confidence, poise and ability to extend the play.

“I had Steve McNair through Super Bowl 34. As a head coach in NFL Europe, I had Danny Weurffel and Shaun Hill,” Andrus told SN. “In the UFL I had Troy Smith and Eric Crouch on the same team; both won the Heisman Trophy.
“Bryan is in that class as far as his talent.”

Andrus wasn’t the only TSL head coach who saw the potential in Scott at that event. Steve Fairchild — former Bills running back coach and St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach — saw an “NFL-ability arm” on the former DIII player.
“Every time we got in a team setting, he threw the ball well,” Fairchild said. “But a lot of guys throw the ball well. But every time we got into some sort of competitive team setting, his game kind of rose.
“I’ve coached a little bit in the NFL. He could play at that level. He’s that type of talent.”
Scott earned The Spring League MVP honors in 2018, netting him tryouts with the Chiefs and Falcons. Neither workout resulted in anything long-term, so Scott signed a futures contract with the CFL’s then-Edmonton Eskimos in October 2019 for the 2020 season.
Once the league canceled its season because of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, Scott opted out of his contract so he could showcase his talents somewhere — anywhere — with the goal of making an NFL team.
Scott again turned to The Spring League, which ironically took place in the fall of 2020. This time the event — which broadcast games on Fox Sports 1 — included six teams, more games and even more notable players. Among them: former Power 5 college football quarterbacks J.T. Barrett (Ohio State), Shea Patterson (Michigan) and Alex Hornibrook (Florida State).
No surprise, Scott — whom Andrus drafted first off the board — outperformed all of them. As quarterback for the Generals, he earned the league’s MVP crown a second time. He completed 91 of 133 passes (68.4 percent) for 1,125 yards and 13 touchdowns to one interception. He also led his team to a 4-0 record and the TSL championship.
That led to a workout with the Colts in February, and two more NFL teams Scott declined to name. Now, he is once again waiting for his shot at earning his spot on an NFL roster — and he feels confident his opportunity will come soon.
“I want to show a team what I can do day in and day out,” he said. “I want to show a team my character and what I can bring to their football team and how I can make their football team better. And whoever does sign me is just going to get a winner and a leader.”
Bryan Scott knows the importance of timing.
Perhaps he might have hit his growth spurt earlier in high school. Maybe that would have led to a scholarship offer at a Division I school, where he would be more noticeable and his competition less scrutinized. Or, he simply could have chosen to leave Occidental behind in favor of a larger program.
“Who knows where my life would be right now,” Scott said.
But then, Scott wouldn’t be the same player or person he is today — the one who has had to earn everything. He considers that mentality as much a strength in his relentless pursuit of the NFL as his arm talent or athleticism. And he wants to prove right everyone who has believed in him up to his point: friends, family, coaches and teammates.

That includes those who have worked with him in TSL. Andrus finds it “baffling” that an NFL team hasn’t taken a chance on Scott. Fairchild calls it “mind-boggling.”
Both understand why some in the NFL might hesitate to take a chance on Scott. Division III teams simply don’t produce NFL talents like those in Divisions I or II. Only 10 former Division III players were on NFL rosters in 2020, and none was a quarterback.

And yet, both Andrus and Fairchild consider Scott an “exception to that rule,” someone whose natural talent, competitive nature and leadership qualities supersede all else.
“He sees himself as a starting NFL quarterback” Fairchild said, “and he should. There’s no doubt in my mind.”
Said Andrus: “I think it’s a matter of time before somebody wakes up and says, ‘You know, we better give this guy a chance.’”
That’s all Scott has ever needed.

The Jack Adams Prize is an annual award presented by the National Hockey League Broadcasting Association to the coach who has made the greatest contribution to his team’s success. The winner is chosen by voting at the end of the regular season.
The prize was presented by the NHL Broadcasting Association in 1974 in memory of former Detroit Red Wings coach and general manager Jack Adams. His dedication to hockey has served as an inspiration to everyone involved in the game.
Jacques Demer is the only coach to have won the award twice in a row. Five specialists in history have won the trophy with two different teams. Barry Trotz, Jacques Lemaire, Pat Quinn and Scottie Bowman have won the prize twice, and Pat Burns is the only coach to have won the Jack Adams prize three times.

They gave it cheap.First defeat to Rogers “Manchester United
Silly mistakes and lack of consistency in the pivot zone, coupled with a goal on duty from a standard, left Manchester United without an FA Cup semi-final. Andrey Kulyazin talks about the reasons for the defeat, the first on the road since January 2020 in the framework of tournaments among English clubs.
Before today’s meeting, Solskjaer had excellent statistics of games against Leicester: 3 wins and 1 draw. But for the last two years, the Foxes have been the top team.So the thoughts were only positive. True, the game itself showed that our squad is not yet ready for experiments. The Norwegian decided to give the bench players a chance to prove themselves, who could not cope with the opponent. There are a minimum of positive moments in the last game, let’s analyze the negative aspects.
Fred sans Scotty – hole in the prop
The “miner” is the obvious anti-hero of the meeting. He was Leicester’s most dangerous player. And if the first sawn-off shotgun in the center of the field did not lead to a goal, then the second has already been realized by Iheanacho.Disgusting handling of Harry’s pass by the Brazilian, and instead of hitting the ball after such an oversight, he gives Dean the worst possible pass. But this was not the only problem. Fred had to do double the amount of work. For all its advantages, the Brazilian is not a pure defensive player. And he also had to always hedge Matic, because the Serb could not keep up with the fast players of Leicester.
Actually, the second goal – hello to Nemanje. The Serb makes a mistake in the center, then he cannot impose a fight on Thielemans, and Fred at that moment was in a completely different zone, and no matter how hard he tried to grab the Belgian, he still slipped away.As a result, 30 meters without guardianship and a blow to the far corner. A hit, of course, but the ball ended up in the net. The most interesting thing is that immediately after entering the field of McTominey, the Brazilian ceased to be sausage.
And the question is, what is it connected with? With the fact that Leicester stopped pressing so high or because a partner with whom Fred has played came out. We may find out the answer later, but in this game we simply did not have a support zone.
But the unobvious antihero is already a familiar face.I honestly tried to find something good in Tony’s acting. But this is a nightmare! Not a single won riding single combat, and the sheds were decent. Only one of three successful dribbling attempts, five ball losses and absolute passivity! Indeed, one could close one’s eyes to everything, but when a player does not try to reach the ball at all, this is the finish.
The moment that finished me off happened at the 75th minute. Fred was surrounded by three, which led to the loss of the ball. Tony stands a meter away from the episode and doesn’t even try to accelerate.He just stood up and watched the foxes flee in a counterattack.
It is the same in attacking actions: if the ball reaches it, it quickly leaves, it doesn’t look for free zones, it doesn’t create space for others. But standing and watching football is cool! What dirt does he have on the management that he does not look like a football player all season, but if he is without injury, then he is always at the start? What is he doing in training?
And to the delight of all “Uleauts”.Yes, Solskjaer frankly lost this confrontation to Rogers. The most interesting thing is that the hosts had the most similar game pattern to ordinary football played by United: fuck the center, play counter-attack and high pressure.
Solskjaer, on the other hand, tried to play short pass (528 out of 570 assists). The main drawing, of course, did not change. An attempt to play on the flanks, to stretch the opponent’s defense. But they were able to do this only once, when Tony remained in midfield, and Donnie gorgeous missed a blow to Greenwood.The rest of the time, the owners often found themselves at once together or three against our guys. This opened up zones, but for some reason ours did not use it.
Pogba tried to be creative, and Greenwood used this space as best he could, but they did not want to notice him as much as possible, constantly slowing down the attack. It was as if they were shifting the responsibility for the decisive action onto another, who also did not do it. So it turned out that most of the attacks came down to canopies from Telles or passes to Pogba, so that the Frenchman would try to come up with something on his own.Of course, Leicester cannot be outplayed this way.
There are several reasons for defeats: half-reserve, tiredness from Milan, lack of creativity, unsuccessful experiment with the game from the coach – choose what you want. The fact remains – the game is ruined. But then there would be “Southampton” …
Now there is a pause for the national teams meetings. It will be good. At the very least, the players will have a change of scenery, take a break from United’s difficult schedule, and visit home. If only no one is injured! We still have the championship and the Europa League.And there you can’t lose in any game. It’s a shame that we are leaving for a break on a minor note, but this will only give an impetus to the coaching staff to make sure that we all remember the rest of the season from the good side!90,000 why reaching the last stage of the pyramid is more difficult than it seems – Monocler
Headings: Translations, Latest Articles, Psychology
Many people often identify the concepts of “self-realization” and “self-actualization”. However, if the first is dictated by desires emanating from the outside, then the self-actualization that Abraham Maslow spoke about concerns the very nature of the personality.Together with Scottie Hendrix, we figure out what lies behind this concept and why self-actualization is not a result, but an endless process.
According to the hierarchy of needs of Abraham Maslow, the highest human need is self-actualization. But reaching this stage is not an easy task.
Self-actualization itself is a noble goal. It is she who motivated the creation of humanistic psychology, and thanks to her, publishers annually release millions of books on personal growth.
While most people are familiar with the basic positions of Maslow’s pyramid, not everyone is aware of the problems that the psychologist had to face while building it.It turned out that many people mistakenly believed that they had already passed the stage of self-actualization.
How did Maslow find out about them?
According to psychologist Barry Stevens, a friend of Maslow, something unusual happened when the idea of self-actualization came to light:
“He (Maslow) was unhappy with the reaction of many people when they learned about ‘self-actualizing personalities.’ The reaction was strange. I received many letters in which people wrote: “I am a self-actualized person.”Maslow thought he was missing something. ”
After studying the work of a psychologist, people began to convince their therapists that they had reached the top of the pyramid. But Maslow himself in his book Towards the Psychology of Being noted that “less than 1% of the adult population manages to reach the last stage.”
So if you told Maslow that you were already self-actualizing, it would surely make him laugh.
How difficult is it to become a self-actualized person?
One of the most common criticisms of Maslow’s concept of self-actualization is that it seems to be limited to those who have been fortunate enough in their lives.Consider its hierarchy of needs: the lowest level is basic needs, and the second level is the need for security to create a comfortable living environment. If you do not have enough finance to satisfy the first, you cannot rise to the second level. There is no need to talk about the last step here.
This question arose long before the appearance of the “Maslow pyramid”. Aristotle, whose concept of eudemonism ⓘ The philosophical teaching that human happiness is the highest good and the foundation of human morality.has obvious shades of self-actualization, openly said that only a wealthy Greek man, who had sufficient luck in his life, can “live well.” Other psychologists discussing the issue of self-actualization face similar problems.
Maslow himself believed that anyone is capable of self-actualization. However, only one percent of college students and exemplary historical figures met the criteria for self-actualization, according to Maslow. He understood that such a number of people declaring their self-actualization took place indicates that he failed to reveal the concept of this need properly.
Were these “self-actualized people” wrong?
Many of them are undoubtedly yes. Psychologist Fritz Perls, however, believed that this misunderstanding could also be related to the concept of self-realization. Self-actualization is the process of becoming who you really are. But many people think that self-actualization means becoming who you think you are or who you want to be. But this is already self-realization. It is likely that many of Stevens’ acquaintances simply realized ideal ideas about themselves.
Maslow tells us:
“Self-actualization is the continuous realization of potential opportunities, abilities and talents, as the fulfillment of one’s mission, or vocation, destiny, etc., as a more complete cognition and, therefore, acceptance of one’s own original nature, as a relentless striving for unity , integration, or internal synergy of personality “ⓘKozlov N.” Psychologos. Encyclopedia of Practical Psychology “..
The psychologist also warned that self-actualization does not mean that you are acting according to your own desires.Such actions can be called self-expression, not actualization. So those people were hardly right.
What can be summed up?
Well, first of all, you probably haven’t self-actualized yet.
But now you understand the complexity of this concept better. People should not only satisfy all their needs consistently, but also be open and ready to make themselves psychologically vulnerable in order to meet the “real me” and constantly strive for psychological growth.
However, it is not worth talking about specific methods of personality development in the process of self-actualization, according to humanistic psychologists. Which makes the task much more difficult.
This is really not easy. Self-actualization cannot be achieved in a couple of days, and unforeseen circumstances can always interfere with your progress. Carl Rogers, an American psychologist who also worked with the concept of self-actualization, considered it not an end stage, but an endless process.
“… It is clear that a musician should make music, an artist should paint pictures, and a poet should write poetry, if, of course, they want to live in peace with themselves. A person must be who he can be. A person feels that he must correspond to his own nature. This need can be called the need for self-actualization “ⓘMaslow A.” Motivation and personality. ”
Finally, remember the old Greek saying, “Know thyself.”You cannot become who you are if you do not know who you are. This wisdom goes back to Socrates, and he would advise you to worry about it first.

I included this section because I initially did not believe that this could be the same dog, but research has proven that I am wrong.
Robert Orchi, co-author of Star Trek (2009) , answered this question in a 2009 interview on TrekMovie.com 1 :
QUESTION: Forget it, it was Admiral John Archer (as it obviously was!): Porthos is mentioned about the beagle? Is veterinary medicine so far advanced? (Please say yes!)
So shut me up.
How old would Porthos be?
We do not know exactly when Archer first got Porthos, although we do know that he got it from a puppy.Broken Bow, first episode Enterprise , set in 2151:
Archer: Star Magazine Enterprise , Captain Jonathan Archer. April 16, 2151
Star Trek Enterprise Season 1 Episode 1: Broken Bow
So, Porthos has existed since at least April 2151.
Meanwhile, in Star Trek (2009) Spock names a stardate after taking over Enterprise :
[T] The enterprise EXPLODES – in the distance THE WHOLE PLANET OF VOLCANOES IS SWALLOWED INTO ITSELF – A HORRIBLE, IMPRESSIVE EXPLOSION – UNTIL DARKNESS IS NOTHING. On this occasion we HEAR:
SPOK (VO): Acting Captain’s Journal . Stardate 2256.42: I took over command of Enterprise
Star Trek (2009) – 2007 project
According to Izkata’s answer to this question, this stardate corresponds to February 11, 2256.
Scotty’s later dialogue revealed that he made Porthos disappear six months earlier:
Starfleet Officer (cont’d): For six months I have lived on nothing but Starfleet squirrel feathers and the promise of real food delivery!
Scotty: I told my instructor that not only can I send a bird from one planet to another in the same system – which is easy anyway – but if I was so inclined, I could actually do it with a lifeform ! I tested it on Admiral Archer’s hound. What … was bug

Six months before that date, we are approaching August 2255.
So Porthos was at least 104 years old.

NHL: Results of St. George’s Day
On March 4, the National Hockey League announced a deadline, the last day on which clubs were allowed to trade. There were no sensations in the market of players, but a couple of high-profile transitions did take place.
First of all, it is worth highlighting the transfer of the Phoenix leader Olli Jokinen to Calgary, who gave the strong striker Matthew Lombardi for the Finnish striker.
“Pittsburgh”, leading the fight for getting into the playoffs, traded for next to nothing (a choice in the fifth round of the draft) from the “Islanders” experienced Bill Guerin.
Only one transition took place with the participation of a Russian player – Dmitry Kalinin moved from Rangers to Phoenix and will now be able to come to the World Championship, as getting the Coyotes into the playoffs is a big question.
Finally, one of Toronto’s top scorers, Nikolai Antropov from Kazakhstan, went to Kalinin’s former Rangers club.
Full list of transactions on March 4:
1. n. Antoine Vermette (“Ottawa”) – c. Pascal Leclair (Columbus) + 2009 2nd Round Pick

Fake forwards, a mobile bus and 6 more tactical plots of the Premier League start
Van Gaal continues to believe in the new scheme and Blinda is in the center of defense
United’s success in the second half of last season is inextricably linked with a 4-1-4-1 formation and interaction in magic triangles on the flanks (any three players from the four: wing-back, winger, inside, defensive midfielder).Contrary to expectations, even after acquiring players who fit perfectly into this formation in midfield, Van Gaal changed his formation to 4-2-3-1. Despite the Dutchman’s promises to return to 4-1-4-1 from the start of the season, Manchester did not leave her either at the training camp or in the first official matches (with the exception of occasional deviations, when Schweinsteiger and Herrera, who were on the same line, played higher Schneiderlin).

An important feature of such a module is the presence of a pronounced player under the striker. Out of habit, everyone calls him the top ten, and Van Gaal himself is the second striker supporting Rooney from the depths (such a vision does not allow to unambiguously determine the alignment – this is a hybrid of 4-2-3-1 and 4-4-1-1). Unlike the clean number 10, this player is not sharpened by a pass to the striker or winger. Rather, he himself is the addressee of passes from the flanks and must rush into the penalty area from the depths – into those free zones that Rooney creates for him.
This position is a problem for Manchester United: if the rest of the roles in the midfield and the attacking group have already been assigned, the search continues here. At the training camp and in the first round against Tottenham, Van Gaal tried Depay – Memphis did not convince him, it is much more convenient for him to attack from the flank. Januzaj played with Villa, Newcastle and half a half with Club Brugge – Louis was dissatisfied with his speed of thinking and the percentage of marriage (Adnan is already in Dortmund). In the second half of the Belgian match, Herrera moved to this position, and the hosts were torn.The Spaniard also played on a level against Swansea, but he is just a classic number ten, and not support for Rooney. Van Gaal needs not creation from this player, but completion – that is why Martial is taken. Knowledgeable people say that his favorite position is the flank, but if necessary, he plays on the edge and in the quickdraw. The success of the company this season largely depends on the young Frenchman.The Dutch coach’s second idea is to use Blind in the center of defense. Van Gaal sacrifices defensive reliability to get another playmaker.In terms of creation, such a move is justified – Blind starts attacks from the depths, easily delivers the ball to any flank and participates in maintaining possession. But the defensive flaws were clearly shown by Swansea – the Welsh used the entire match against Blind the powerful Gomis, who over and over again pushed the Dutchman, and then scored the winning goal. If this simple recipe is adopted by all the teams, then United will face serious problems from behind (while even Liverpool with the best striker on the second floor in Europe – Benteke won 46 such duels – did not fully exploit this weakness of Blind) …The first year of the new time. What changes does Van Gaal make
Three different formations and Rogers’ average pressure
Liverpool played 4-3-3 as their main option at the training camp (instead of 3-4-2-1 last season), but effectively used this formation only in second half against Stoke after Jan came out and Milner and Henderson were promoted to box-to-box positions. They sometimes pulled deeper for passes to the third player and actively pressed.
Hendo’s injury forced Rogers to play with Arsenal and West Ham (before moving to 3-4-2-1, which brightened up the weak play of the Scousers) to use another 4-3-3 with the simultaneous presence of Can and Lucas.This is a more defensive variation, in which the Scousers have clear problems with a positional attack.
Another variation of Rogers at the start – 4-2-3-1, occasionally appearing at the training camp. This module has two important features in the Liverpool context:
- A reasonably flexible Henderson-Milner support zone without a nominal tackling midfielder.
- Unusual defense system. When using 4-2-3-1, there are quite a few options for defense: you can use the same formation, you can go to 4-4-1-1 or 4-4-2, but Rogers used a very unusual line.His trick was that in the defensive phase, the nominal wingers (then Lallana and Ayb) dropped on the same line with Henderson, and Milner moved forward in a pair to Coutinho – the transition to 4-3-2-1 was carried out. The main idea is to use the so-called medium pressure, based primarily on Milner’s high level of mobility.
Pellegrini and Monk share the prize for the best substitution
Man City’s impressive stretch at the end of last season (6 wins in a row) was largely due to Pellegrini’s idea transfer the command to module 4-3-3.The prevailing opinion was that the townspeople would enter the new season with the same formation, but for certain reasons (insufficient readiness of the third central midfielder – Fernando and Delph did not play a full match; ten – the most effective position for Silva – is absent in 4-3-3 ) the Chilean went back to 4-2-3-1. And unlike most of his colleagues, Pellegrini presents surprises without even changing the formation during the match – once again confirms the postulate that tactics is not necessarily a change in formation.A passable, at first glance, home match against Watford. The guests defend themselves competently in the first half, block all zones, and City not only does not score, but does not create a single clear scoring chance (the term Opta – big chance). During the break, Pellegrini decides on a non-trivial replacement – Navas leaves, Silva moves from the usual tens position to the right, and Sterling takes his place (who seems to be not so good in this role). The result comes in 30 seconds: the opponent does not understand the permutations, and Silva, Sanya and Sterling play a three-move.
Swansea head coach Harry Monk, one of the favorites for England’s coach, made an equally brilliant replacement. As Man United opened the scoring in the second half and seemingly took full control of the game, Monk made an unusual decision. Many in his place would have put a second striker (powerful Eder) and loaded into the penalty area, but the Englishman released a central midfielder (Ki Son Yen) instead of the attacker (Routledge). No, he hasn’t strengthened the defense – Swansea went from 4-2-3-1 to 4-4-2 with a diamond (Monk’s favorite line-up).The main idea is to untie Ayu’s hands. A military trick is to expose the flanks, making it possible for the already active Shaw to walk forward even more often. The idea worked – United’s previously flawless left-back stopped coming back, and both Swansea goals came from his zone.
The spurs’ poor start and playing difficulties are largely due to the changed play of the opponents against Harry Kane. If last season Hurricane received more space, and he was rarely guarded by two or more defenders, now he is being knitted on the way to the attacking third.There are at least two or even three against him.Kane’s situation is very similar to the one with Michael Jordan and Chicago in the late 1980s. The Bulls weren’t a great team back then, and Jordan’s partner level was much lower than it was in the mid-90s. Jordan was played against at least two on the perimeter and three in paint. And Michael was ineffective to throw the ball on one of the partners – they all beat with a percentage much lower than required. The same is with Kane – the entire attack group of “Spurs” (with the exception of Eriksen, but he is injured) does not make decisions so quickly and wastes a lot of moments.Opponents do not have to cover Kane’s partners – if a pass follows, then with a high probability the moment will be screwed up, or the defenders will have time to rebuild. “Chicago” got out of this situation by inviting Scotty Pipen, with whom Jordan could always beat. Perhaps the transfer of Hyun Min Sung – ambidextrous from Bayer – will solve this problem at Tottenham.
Ross Barkley Floating PositionThe young Englishman’s basic position is ten in Martinez’s basic 4-2-3-1 formation. In the current offseason, Barkley was predicted to evolve to a center striker, but Ross went the other way.In some parts of matches (Watford, Southampton, Man City), he sank deeper, forming a fist in the center of the field with McCarthy and Barry, and the team moved to 4-1-4-1. Such a compact play in the center of the field allowed Everton to defend more effectively, and Barkley himself, after the selection, sometimes played from the depths, and not from the zone of ten – an occupation that requires much more mental costs than a simple game of a striker.
Ranieri’s inverted wingers
Leicester with the Italian coach and without Pearson and Cambiasso were expected to be relegated, but so far they are staying in the Champions League zone.Ranieri not only plays Kasabian in the locker room and jokes in Match of the Day with Lineker – he also understands something about tactics. Leicester plays the classic 4-4-2 line-ups with him on a regular basis (the Foxes’ rescue last season was due to the abandonment of this formation and the transition to 3-4-1-2). The basic idea behind the 4-4-2 line-up is to cross from the flanks to the center forwards (as Pearson used them, for example). For such a game, it is desirable that one of the two strikers is the pillar, and the leading leg of the winger matches the flank.
Ranieri has a slightly different idea. Firstly, both of his forwards are fast enough and prefer to rush into the penalty area from the depths. Secondly, the Italian uses inverted wingers (left-handed Marez on the right and right-handed Albrighton on the left), which is typical for other formations (4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1). They can, of course, hang, but mostly move towards the penalty area, and then hit or pass through. Marez and Albrighton constantly catch opponents in cross traffic, which makes it difficult to defend against them.
Flores mobile bus
In the camp of the hornets, forced rebuilding takes place. Last season, the team played in the Championship in a 4-4-2 formation, but then they played most of the matches from a position of strength. Now Watford is an underdog, and a daring game with two clean strikers could cost them a Premier League registration. In the first three games of the season, Quique Sanchez Flores used a 4-2-3-1, in which the nominal forward Igalo was forced to act in the position of number ten.
At Etihad, the Spaniard went even further – he released a squad with two profile forwards, while formally the team played without any forwards at all.Dini and Igalo took up positions at the edges of the midfield, while Jurado acted in the center in front of a powerful fist in the center of midfield. But the Spaniard could not fully be called a striker – he played a false striker, constantly pulling back into midfield to help Abdi. This move kept Man City at bay for the entire half, and only a brilliant replacement by Pellegrini destroyed Flores’ defenses.Premier football.
