Its doesnt sound good when you talk about Football.

We write in a mixture of both because we learn British English in school but mostly interact with American English everywhere else.


The Head Coach example you provided is a poor one though. That's simply because in the UK the manager is also the coach and they call him the manager. In the rest of Europe the manager and the coach are usually a different dude.

Euro U21 injury updates (as per UEFA.com):

-Russia has lost defender Knyazev due to a knee injury for the rest of the tournament. On the bright side, their two best players, Alan Dzagoev and Fedor Smolov, have just come back from playing with the senior squad and they both will be available for the next match.

-Spain's Sergio Canales has also fallen injuried with a muscle tear and will miss the remainder of the tournament. I feel bad for the kid. So much talent and so many injuries in his short career. At least it's just a muscle tear.

-England: Wilfred Zaha, who stayed on bench in the first match due to ankle issues, will be ready to play next Saturday against Norway.

-Israel: Marwan Kabha's participation in the next match is still unsure as he's recovering from the abdominal injury he suffered against Norway.

-Italy: Luca Marrone is out of the tournament with a femoral biceps injury he suffered last Wednesday.

-Norway: midfielder Jo Inge Berget will be available against England after the head cut (for which he had to get stitches) he suffered in the last match.

I'm pretty sure zonal marking doesn't concede more than man marking.

In corners?
If there are stats showing the allowed goal % of the same team when using zone vs when using man, they would be useful.

But my feeling is players are still quite unused to it and do it very badly.

I had never heard of it before. I checked who the journalists writing on that website are and, quite frankly, they're not very trustworthy imo. Take it with a grain of salt, probably just talking out of their asses.

Because, while very, very talented, he's just as lazy on and off the pitch, in addition to being a dick and a headcase, and not knowing anything or giving a flying **** about tactics.

Well yes, but he's no Ibrahimovic, and Ibra may be a dick, but he's a professional. Medunjanin is good, even very good when he's feeling it, but may happen maybe once every ten games. The other nine he will just casually jog around completely disinterested and disengaged. He could be the star for a bad team, or a good player for a low mid-level team, but he lacks the professionalism and mindset for that.
