Against all odds: a survival guide for weak NTs
You have just been elected NT manager of a small nation and you realize that your players are far weaker than you expected? You don't know how to compete while waiting for younger players to be trained properly? Read on.
With home-grown players to the top (2)
Four years ago, I wrote “With home-grown players to the top” (13392). In that article, I predicted that within 15 seasons, I would rise to the top leagues, without buying any players. Almost 15 seasons have passed since I started this project. Time to evaluate!
The Old Man and Hattrick
As Ernest Hemingway wrote in his story "The Old Man and the Sea": "A man can be destroyed but not defeated." This sentence really fits into the history of one of Hattrick users - 80 years old ignac35 (5827577). This is the interview with him - the oldest user of Hattrick in Poland, maybe in the world too.
An interview with Ratsia
Ratsia (88666) is the 'most stalked' user in HT (except HTs): more than 400 users bookmarked him to read his posts, he's playing the game since 2002 and he's well known as a very interesting person. And when editorials are published, a lot of users start to look for his posts, to check the ideas of an HT user "who knows". With this interview, we try to give you some more information about him, and his ideas/proposals about HT.
Hattrick - more than a product - more than a game
This article was published some days ago on the german "Hattrick Press"-site and was written in response to the recent announcement regarding the raise of supporter prices. It attempts to sum up both the official HT stance as well as the reactions from the community. The article focuses on Hattricks unique selling points and tries to determine the legitimacy of the protests that resulted from the announced price raise.
The story of Saint Hattrick's Day
It's a very schoene story, as we call it in German.
Perhaps some of you know this schoene things?
Things you didn't expect and you don't understand.
But in a special way - you like them.
A spring of new forces!
Only a few teams won their first ever top league titles last season. We found three of those new champions to discuss about their successful campaigns, their future plans and of course, hattrick in general!
Today's Article: World Cup in Brazil.
A OPH (Oficial Press Hattrick) Year II - Article 003 by Renan Freitas.
|Today's Article: World Cup in Brazil.|
* The World Cup in Brazil was a great event that many people around the world collaborated for.
* By the time of the lasts rounds of the WCQ, the favourites National Teams were invited to a short interview. We highlight the best moments of these interviews.
Brazil is a know for beaches, football and carnaval. We asked to NT coaches what comes to mind when they listen the word 'Brasil'
and what they think about the choice of this country to host the World Cup.
The highlight of the interviews was the NT coach of Netherlands,thunder(2203953)
that was concerned about the home advantage in the midfield.
, He said:
thunder, Holanda:" To be honest I didn't pay that much attention to whom were goning to host the World Cup. Most important for me was that Belgium or Ukraine didn't win the host competition. They surely have a squad that could win the World Cup, and the home advantage would make it very difficult for others to compete against them.
With all do respect, Brasil is not as good as those nations, thus the home advantage would be less important.
The fact that now the World Cup in real life as in Hattrick are hosted by Brasil is a very nice thing."
About the memory
of the world 'Brasil
the Bulgaria NT coach Milcho(3553013)
went beyond the usual and dind't mention only beautiful women and football.
Interview HT-Johan & Co
We did an interview with HT-Johan, one of Hattrick's owners, and I hope you'll enjoy reading it. :)
A Man Named Nadav
A man named Nadav gets to know Hattrick
Nadav signed up to HT in September 2007. 9 months previously, Hapoel Nahariya had made history in becoming the first non-suicide Masters winner. That trophy brought plenty of local media attention and publicity in Israel - which in turn led to a substantial increase in active managers in HT Israel. Nadav discovered hattrick not long after this. He was a 25 yr old accountant who signed up after a friend told him about the game, persuading him give Hattrick a try. Whilst waiting for his his team, he read several guides to the game and had decided he wanted to train Defending, despite the guidance advice having suggested goalkeeping as a good training regime for any new manager. Nadav reckoned that defence training would be more profitable. Over the next 4 years, training defending throughout, he promoted from VI to IV. Then, with an almost inexplicable inevitability, at the end of the 28th season in Israel (44th season global), he decided to switch to passing training. The rest, as they say, is his story...
