Why On Earth Should I Moan – Still Nothing To Complain About in ‘A Hard Day’s Night’

YEAH YEAH YEAH to coin a phrase – I know, I know, another appraisal of The Beatles film ‘A Hard Day’s Night’

Nearly fifty four years old and the subject of countless critiques does the world really need one more? Well after watching it on television for the umpteenth time over Christmas I decided another set of observations could do no harm – after all what is wrong in celebrating eighty seven minutes of such joy one more time?

Having watched ‘A Hard Day’s Night,’ at least once every eighteen months for the roughly the past forty years I thought there was nothing new for me to see but like the brilliant rock album and great film (which it most certainly is) there is often something new to discover. Much of the back story I discovered in the two-set DVD edition that I received as a birthday present about five years ago and while ‘the making of,’ documentary of is both fascinating and informative it also served to shatter one of my lasting illusions of the film. Down the years when walking along the platform of Liverpool Lime Street station I always conjured the image of the Fab Four being chased down the same walkway in the opening scene, only to discover it was not shot there but at Marylebone Station and the train journey they take in the first twenty minutes of the film is not from Liverpool to London, but back and forth from Marylebone to Minehead – leaving me with mixed feelings whether it was information I really needed to be aware of.

But no matter how many times I see it (and on this latest viewing I did spot a couple of errors in continuity that had never come to my attention before) I am always enthralled by the sheer exuberance of how The Beatles perform as actors. To clarify ‘A Hard Day’s Night,’ completely breaks with the tradition laid down in the films made by the likes of Elvis Presley and Cliff Richard up to that point, as rather than play singing characters The Beatles are themselves which gives ‘A Hard Day’s Night,’ its documentary feel and in a story that sees them travelling to London for a television appearance also provides an insight into the lives they were living at the time. The film, cleverly directed by Richard Lester, depicts each member with a distinctly individual personality that from this point onward they would retain until virtually the day they split up – John (rebel), Paul (romantic), George (thinker), Ringo (jester) – but in 1964, before a dark side to ‘Beatlemania’ had developed, their camaraderie is joyful and a far, far cry from the tetchy, squabbling individuals they became when breaking up in front of cameras for ‘Let It Be,’ just five years later.

In early 1964, however, the hand of manager Brian Epstein is still on the tiller, evident in their clean shaven, collar and tie appearance – with hard drugs, political pronouncements and mysticism still someway off. The music too has yet to undergo the transformation that happened once Bob Dylan and psychedelics replaced Buddy Holly and Eddie Cochran as the principal song writing influences of Lennon and McCartney – nevertheless the soundtrack of ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ is still a marvel. ‘If I Fell,’ ‘Tell Me Why,’ and ‘And I Love Her,’ all have gorgeous melodies and straightaway as songwriters they are way ahead of the field, while in the latter song the stunning classical guitar arrangement shows The Beatles were quite capable of eclecticism in their own right.

One oddity of the film given it is their movie, is the name of the group is never mentioned – ‘The Beatles’ appears on Ringo’s drum kit and on the helicopter in the closing scene – but everywhere else the superb script, written by playwright Alun Owen, contains comical references to their fame and throws in several in-jokes for good measure, the most obvious being frequent remarks made to Paul’s grandfather, who is travelling with them, about him being ‘a clean old man.’ Played by Wilfrid Brambell, this is a reference to the character Brambell was currently making famous in the television comedy ‘Steptoe and Son’ where he is often labelled ‘a dirty old man.’ After spending time with The Beatles, Owen manages to give his script strong authenticity, picking up on expressions the group were using such as ‘grotty’ and ‘mocker’ that had never been used before. What did come as a surprise when recently watching the film was a scene on a backstage staircase where there road manager (played by Norman Rossington) says to John Lennon as a chorus line passes: ‘put those girls down Lennon or I’ll tell your Mother.’

It seems a strangely insensitive line particularly as Lennon had lost his Mother in a tragic car accident six years before and in view of the tortured songs he wrote about her (‘Mother’, My Mummy’s Dead,’) most notably on his breath taking solo album ‘Plastic Ono Band’ in 1970.

But let us not leave ‘A Hard Day’s Night,’ on a sombre note – it is much too upbeat and infectious for that.

If you have seen the film then see it again and dare yourself not to smile. If somehow you have never seen it what a treat awaits – a wonderful opportunity to witness many of the reasons people remain enthralled by The Beatles to this day.

An Insight Into Bundesliga

Bundesliga refers to a professional and top-tier football league in Germany. The league is also claimed to enjoy the highest number of stadium attendees throughout the globe. Bundesliga is also considered the primary football competition in Germany and participated by 18 clubs. The league is based on promotion and relegation, which further hinges on performance of a side in question. The competition commences in August and ends in May. Most of the games are played on the weekends i.e. Saturdays and Sundays whereas a few matches are held on the weekdays.

All of the participants in Bundesliga earn qualification for DFB-Pokal. The Bundesliga champion qualifies for DFL-Supercup.

Bayern Munich have been the most successful side in Bundesliga, claiming the titles 23 times till date. They are the defending champions during the current 2014-15 season and have also clung to the leading spot on the league table so far this campaign. Other clubs that have won the Bundesliga titles include Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Mönchengladbach, VfB Stuttgart, Werder Bremen and Hamburger SV.

Bundesliga is one of the most competitive and popular national leagues in the world and rank third in Europe as per the league coefficient of UEFA. The league matches are broadcasted in more than 200 nations.

History of Bundesliga

Bundesliga was established in Dortmund in the year of 1962 and its first season began in 1963. Both organization and structure of Bundesliga as well as other football leagues in the country have undergone frequent and massive changes to become what they are right now. Deutscher Fußball-Bund first founded Bundesliga but now it is regulated by Deutsche Fußball Liga.

Structure & Competition

Structure of Budesliga resembles to the same of other major leagues like English Premier League and La Liga or Spain Premier League. Every team takes on each of other sides once at their home ground and once in an away match. Previously, the winning side of a match was awarded two points and a draw earned each of both sides one point whereas the loser gained nothing. However, according to changes of rules and regulations during 1995-96 season, the winning side gets three points (max points).

The club, which collects maximum points at the end of the ongoing season, is crowned with the Bundesliga title. The first three clubs on the Bundesliga table directly qualify for the Champions League group phase whereas the fourth-spotted side enters into the third-qualifying round of the same competition. The two teams at the root of the league table are relegated into the 2nd division whereas the two leading sides of 2nd Bundesliga get promotion. A two-leg play-off match is played between the third-last team and the 3rd spotted side of the 2nd Bundesliga.

The winner plays in the Bundesliga for the next season while the loser plies their trade in the 2nd division.

The method of tie-breakers plays a role if more than one team has collection of same points. The method is in line with the following order:

  • Goal difference in the season
  • Total goals netted by a team in question for the season
  • Head-to-Head goals in outings
  • Number of head-to-head scores

The Cardinal Sins of Australian Football

As with all sport, there are cardinal sins made by players that give their opponents in the game a chance to score. Australian football is no different. Today, in modern football, they are called «clangers» and appear in the statistics compiled during the game. These often result in what is called a «turnover», more often than not in senior football, it results in a goal. This happens because the attacking team is rushing forward to give the player with the ball many options for continuing the attack on the goals, leaving their opponents free and in space. When the clanger occurs, the opposition player getting the ball has many of his team free between him and the goal making scoring easier than normal.

Below is my version of the cardinal sins of Australian Football for a coach who works with school and junior club teams. I’m sure these could be ones that apply to all footballers to some or all extent. In some cases, I offer further explanations.

1. Kicking into the man on the mark.

This is perhaps the biggest clanger of all for a junior player. Often, the player is too close to the mark when he kicks allowing the man on the mark to smoother the kick. He is embarrassed and loses concentration allowing the opposition to swoop on the ball and take it away.

2. No talking.

Australian Football is a 360 degree game. The player with the ball can be tackled from behind if his teammate is not telling him of the danger lurking behind him.

3. Not backing up to protect your mate after a hand ball.

In junior football particularly, the skill of the players are not always developed to a fine degree. So skill errors are made. So it is important the player delivering the ball follows it to assist and protect his mate while retrieving the ball. By backing up, the player is providing another attacking option.

4. Not looking up before you kick the ball.

If the player doesn’t look up, he will not spot the best option let alone any option. Not looking up often results in a turnover.

5. Being goal hungry; Not centring the ball to the goal square but kicking for goal from the boundary.

It is difficult to score goals from the boundary. The best option is to kick the ball to the front of the goal square where a kick for goal will almost always result in a major score. Players other than forwards or midfielders, wanting to kick a goal, simply clog up the forward line and leave their opponent unmarked and therefore an attacking option for the opposition.

6. Stepping over the kick out line at fullback when kicking out after a behind is scored.

This creates a ball up on the front edge of the goal square giving the opposition a great chance to score. This «clanger» often occurs because the fullback has been given no leading options by his team and is forced to kick out under pressure.

7. Not marking your opponent when the opposition has the ball.

By not marking your opponent when they have the ball you are creating the «man over» situation for the opposition. This is what every team wants. It is the secret to success in Australian Football.

8. Playing from behind.

The man in front has the first opportunity to get the ball. Thus, he has control of the situation. Most free kicks are given against the man playing from behind.

9. Failing to spoil in a marking contest when you are behind.

The result of this is obvious. You Opponent marks the ball and continues his team’s attack.

10. Not following the team plan.

It is a team sport. If players don’t follow the team plan, confusion reigns, players lose confidence and begin to play for themselves.

11. Disputing the umpire’s decisions.

This gets the umpire offside. Remember he is human, too and can make mistakes. It breaks the players’ concentration and leads to the team thinking about umpire’s decisions rather than the game.

12. Giving away a 50 metre penalty.

This is caused by going over the mark before the umpire calls «play on» or by violently disputing umpire’s decisions. This often results in an opposition score.

13. Getting reported.

You are a loss to the team, particularly if you are an important, skilful member of the team.

Most, if not all these issues are caused by lack of self-discipline often by good players. It is important that the coach step in and discipline players who display a lack of self-discipline. Talent and skill are of no consequence if the player allows a lack of self-discipline affect his ability to add to the team’s performance.
