Our top teams are registered companies and they invest in (mostly foreign) players like you mentioned which they use to generate a profit which mostly comes from advertising (all that crap printed on their shirts etc) so you can’t call it “Cypriots wasting money” because some of the shareholders may not be Cypriots or living in Cyprus even.

ie: “Pari Match” on APOEL’s shirts is a Russian online betting company and I suspect they hold some shares too.

Or the “Visit Cyprus” on Apollon’s shirts must be an ad from our KOT.

It’s a complex but seemingly profitable industry that goes beyond our shores so I wouldn’t simplify it into a “Cypriots wasting money”.

Most Cyprus teams have huge debts. They spend a lot more than what they earn from ads, tickets and everything else combined. They don't even pay their taxes:

That was a very sleek move actually... Nicos is a huge football fan and in this way he strengthened all football teams as well as securing the electoral backing of 100 odd football clubs and everyone else affected by them! :lol:

And that is why those investments in football companies are made. It is not because the are good investments that have profits, but because in Cyprus those who control the big football clubs can affect politicians. Personally I think it is bullshit. Football clubs should pay all their taxes to the last cent and they should be under the same laws as every other company. If they can't make a profit then they should shut down.... or even better stop being companies, and became sport clubs for Cypriots to play in.

According to the International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS) which you can read about here…

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internati ... Statistics

…the Cypriot football league ranked 13th in the world in 2017, one place above Turkey and two below Greece…

For geographical positioning, please see Richard's post.

For official FIFA Rankings, please see below:

Australia 36 and climbing
Turkey 41
Greece 47
Cyprus 92

Oh, the new National Coach is the former coach of Holland in the 2014 World Cup. 8)

Do you have coaches like that mate, in Cyprus? Can you afford them? :lol:

As you know very well, Australia is a practitioner of Dutch Total Football developed by Johan Cruyff. Cyprus would get annihilated if they ever played Australia. BTW boys and girls, I'm on my way to Russia to watch Australia play! Look for the Australian and Cypriot Flag and there you will find Paphitis :P

Australia adopted Total Football in the 80s and started teaching it at the Academies. Every player was bought up with Total football as the Federation rolled it out like a curricula and they even had Dutch Players come over every year to open Academies. This is the reason why Australia is capable of beating ANY country in the world on their day. They are physically brutal and will crush you. They just don't stop running.

And the Australian Federation is very rich. It's probably richer than the English FA. It spent $54 million on a hopeless World Cup bid. Why do they have so much money? because The Australian Football League is a franchise business system similar to American Football, and the Australian Football League (Aussie Rules). It's massive business. Some of the clubs are as big Inter Milan or Roma. The City Football Group for instance own Melbourne City. That's Manchester City mate, and you know very well they can buy Apoel out lock stock and barrel 100 times over mate. They can buy every single Cypriot Team if they want to, but they will still invest in Australian talent. Melbourne City have 27,000 members mate and season ticket holders, Apoel struggles to get 8000 each game. :lol: :lol:

There are 2 teams that play Total football, and one of those is Australia. Therefore, they are going to thrive under Dutch management. :D

Did you notice how Holland really struggled against Australia. That's because the Aussies used their tactics against them and they are very good at it too.

Other teams to struggle are defensive teams like Italy. When an opponent parks the bus, the Aussies relentlessly attack. The only weakness is the counter because they can leave themselves vulnerable too. Australia isn't renowned for parking the bus or even being a good defensive team and they have lost many games because of stupid defensive errors. They however love to attack, especially out wide and they can switch the game in a split second and they are fast and physical out on the wings. As such Greece traditionally never does well against Australia either and neither does Brazil or England. Australia loves an opponent like Italy or Greece with their pressing build ups because they always apply pressure at the front and break the attack down usually.

One thing you can say about ANY Aussie Team in ANY sport DT, is that the Aussies represent their country with pride and they will always play to their best and they will always play to win. They will never accept getting whacked 4 goals to nil every single game and there would be a huge blood letting if they embarrassed their country. When you come up against the Aussies, you better watch it because they will hurt you badly. :wink:

When the Aussie Flag enters ANY sporting arena, people notice and their opponents know they got a huge fight on their hands. When it enters the Olympic Stadium, even China, Russia, Germany and USA tremble! That's because they are strong for their population. Extremely strong.

Australia isn't the kind of country that will fill its teams with foreigners. They will develop their own players because their main aim is to do justice to Australia's name on the International Arena and on the World cup stage. Getting smashed all the time just isn't something Australians can accept. We are such bad losers too and sometimes can't handle it. Just ask the English cricketers about our sledging and off the field behavior. We can be such bad sports too. They will always play to win and they will always try and beat the world's best and they do many times.

They are too proud and always put their shirt ahead of the money just like the Americans do as well. I think you would call them extremely Nationalistic. They will break their legs representing Australia, and if you are not careful they will break the legs of their opponents too because they are physical, very physical and that is something you won't be able to handle DT. So many times Australia have played Brazil, Germany, England or Holland and even these teams just end up with very bruised egos. Even defeat.

You basically posted two pages of irrelevant bullshit! :lol:
