Manchester United Winning the Battle But Losing the War?

It is almost starting to become funny; all the fuss over one player borders on the ridiculous. Cristiano Ronaldo has made headlines for weeks just because someone decided he should make the move to Real Madrid. Whether the entire thing was initiated by Ronaldo himself, Real Madrid, an outspoken fan or someone else, it is turning into a joke. Manchester United thought they had turned the tables on Real Madrid, but from the looks of current events, the joke is on United.

On Monday, an official complaint was logged by Manchester United with FIFA, claiming that Real Madrid is publicly courting the winger without the consent of the club that currently owns his contract. Real Madrid is countering that United doesn’t have a case against them. The fact of the matter is that FIFA does have a rule about negotiating with a player who is under contract, and if Real Madrid has done that, then they are indeed in violation of the rules. However, there seems to be no evidence of that. True, Real Madrid has said they want Ronaldo. But, in reality, have they done anything beyond that? Ramon Calderon of Real Madrid says they haven’t, and it is rather questionable if Manchester United will be able to prove otherwise.

To add to the frustration at Old Trafford, Karim Benzema has decided to stay in France rather than make the move to Manchester United. Beyond that, the twenty-year-old Ligue 1 Player of the Year has said when he has learned all he can in France, he’d like to make the move to Real Madrid. The desired move of the young striker has to be making the head honchos at Manchester United see red. But to add insult to injury, while Benzema had been considering a move to United, he doesn’t feel he is ready to play for a team of Real Madrid’s calibre.

Then there is seventeen-year-old sensation Aaron Ramsey. Everyone was certain Ramsey was going to Old Trafford when they entered into talks with Cardiff’s young star. But though they courted him fervently, even offering to loan him back to Cardiff for a year, it appears they have somehow drawn the short straw yet again. Rather than leaving behind the Cardiff Bluebirds to become a Manchester United Red Devil, Ramsey has chosen to head to Arsenal instead. People are speculating that the ability of Arsenal’s manager to develop young talent was at the core of Ramsey’s decision, but what if there is more to it than that?

Looking at Manchester United’s recent actions from the perspective of a player shows another possibility. Basically, their response to the Ronaldo situation says that if you play for United, especially if you play well, they own you. Who in their right mind would want to join a club like that? Perhaps it has nothing to do with the decisions of Benzema and Ramsey, but the thought may very well have crossed their minds before deciding against moves to Manchester United. So while Old Trafford may manage to keep Cristiano Ronaldo, one has to wonder what it will cost them in terms of their reputation and future.

Turf Seeds for All Your Sports

Turf seeds, in general, are used for leisure, landscape, and sports, however, sports constitute the largest share of all the uses. Such seeds are used in a number of sports, be it cricket, golf, football, baseball, etc. There are various types of seeds, each suited for a different sport, for instance, the most preferred varieties for golf are Ryegrass, Creeping Bentgrass, Bermuda Grass, Zoysia Grass, etc. There are several types in the market, like Creeping Bent Grass, Blue Kentucky Grass, Tall Fescue Grass, Rye Grass, Bermuda Grass, Zoysia Grass, Bahia Grass, and others.

Does this market for sports turf seed offer any benefits?

The demand for them is a derived demand for turf-based sports fields, and with increasing number of tournaments, including the yearly Indian Premier League (IPL), the demand for it has been increasing rapidly over the years. There are a number of factors that make a natural turf field superior to an artificial one, some of the factors are stated below:

• soil restoration and improvement

• noise abatement and glare reduction

• heat dissipation and temperature moderation

• surface water protection

However, with the growing trend of synthetic fields around the world, the growth of the market has somewhat slowed down.

What is the scenario for such a niche market?

A report by a market research firm estimates a 10.2% CAGR for the global sports turf seed market, which was worth USD 836.7 million in 2015.

What we are observing globally, in terms of sports turf seeds, is that the world trade of turf grass seed revolves around five major players. The United States is by far the largest producer and exporter of grass seed in the world. This is followed by the EU15 as a whole, then Canada and New Zealand follow. The other nations of significance in the market are Argentina and the Czech Republic.

The main hurdles for the global turf seed market are; falling yield, rapid adoption of artificial turf, and rising costs of growing turf seeds.

However, with increasing number of research studies ongoing for the development of drought tolerant and other types of turfs around the world. For instance, Grass Traits and Varieties (GTV) program represents research on a wide breadth of target traits for grass cultivars in the United Kingdom, it is expected that new and better varieties are likely to be developed in the future, which may further drive market growth.

Talisman Hazard, Back Where He Belongs

For Eden Hazard, the first season at Chelsea was supposed to be difficult, given the Premier League’s immense physical demands and his modest stature at 5’8″. Hazard though announced himself in a respectable way with 13 goals in the season. The next season got him 17 goals plus the PFA Young Player of the Year award. The season after, he scored another 19 and won the PFA player of the Year award. Both seasons he was unanimously voted Chelsea’s Player of the Year.

Three seasons with the West London outfit, and Hazard was a superstar. His dribbling skills were mesmerizing, his ability to outfox defenders with ease was a treat to watch. He could score at will, his pace was amazing and his set-pieces were brilliant.

Indeed, terminologies like ‘the next Messi’ and ‘a future Ballon d’or’ were heard when referring to Hazard. And while Hazard did find himself crashing on the football turf often, courtesy of some aggressive defending, his form took an abruptly similar turn before long.

Playing the 2015-16 season for the defending champions of the Premier League, Hazard lost possession often, and it looked like his heart was not in the game. He tried switching it up but nothing came of it. His tally of just six goals bore a symbiotic relationship to Chelsea’s own decline over the season as they endured a lowly 10th-place finish. Unfortunately for the Belgian, he bore the brunt of the criticism from the media, former players and pundits.

They said he was a ‘flash in the pan’, ‘weakling’ and ‘overrated’. PSG and Real Madrid generously offered to give him an out. West London was not a happy place.

All that was about to change.

The new season brought in a new manager from Italy Antonio Conte and a new formation that did wonders for Chelsea, and indeed, Hazard.

As part of the tip of the unusual 3-4-3, Hazard found all the boost he needed. With his hunger back, he tore apart opposition defenders, looking stronger and sharper. He was free-scoring once more and his passes and first touches were precise and incisive.

Fuelled by his 14 goals so far presently the West Londoners sit pretty atop the league table with a bit of daylight between them and their nearest opponents. He has definitely shut all the doubters and stormed his way back into elite status. Those Messi comparisons and Ballon d’or statements are back in circulation.

A heck of a turnaround indeed for the Belgian wizard!
