The Story of Hailian Football Team (Battle Becomes Big)
-Enjoy the days of "Happy Football"
During the rising period of Chengdu Rongcheng Football Team, the football atmosphere here has been expanded, the Chengdu football market has recovered, and the scalpers of banknotes have revived. Football has once again become a hot topic in the stage, and the number of people willing to play football has increased. This east wind has ushered in a new chapter in Chengdu City Football League in 2023. The number of teams has increased steadily, the number of players has greatly increased, and the intensity of competition has increased significantly. In 2023, Hailian set sail for the first battle, and met the most powerful winning team, a hard-to-play cowhide-style personal playing team. It tried its best to fight bravely in the trial array, but its strength was inferior to that of its opponent and it failed to score points.
Watching children practice football on the sidelines, I can’t help but think of football in the 1980s. At that time, China was the top four football teams in Asia all the year round, and suspended 5-10 "strong teams in Asia", and a large number of excellent players from Li Fusheng, Rong Zhixing, Gu Guangming and other countries tried their best to dominate Asian football, failing to enjoy the bonus of football league and get high salaries. Influenced by the reform and opening up, market economy, football culture and system, those young people who grew up in the 1980s gave up their cultural studies and entered the sports teams well, just to make a living. In the end, they were all injured and supported their families with low wages. In the early 1990s, the career of playing football was lost, and a large number of players were injured, but they could only earn some porridge to support their families. As everyone knows, the 90′ s football league, which was the devil’s errand, soared and ushered in the golden age of 20 years, making the players at the top of the professional football pyramid become rich. In fact, the proportion of getting rich with high salary is very low, and a large number of players below the top of the tower have failed to earn super-high salary, that is, the ability to support their families. Playing football, like other professions, only the top of the pyramid can get traffic and super-high money.
On the weekend, I heard a joke from the big Huaxi Dam team "Brother Yong": Every year, we win enough to charge ahead, and we break behind. This seemingly simple truth tells the spirit and culture of football. Winning or losing is not the only thing in the competition of the old age group. Everyone participates because of their love. We should pay attention to the competition and make friends with the ball. Players in their fifties are no longer young, but choose to pursue their dreams in a round football. That’s because they love sports, health, life and life, put down the burden of winning or losing, play happily, and even enjoy the days of pursuing "happy football" as a dam ball. Over the past few months, the understanding and knowledge about enjoying the happiness of football has been deeply integrated into the hearts of every player in Hailian, and it has become more and more in-depth into every game, every movement, every pass, ball control, and every rush …
The defeat in the last fight was just a climb and a cut on the way forward of Hailian, and the twists and turns that must be experienced on the way forward. Everyone came down to discuss the topic and had a clear understanding. Although they were not discouraged by the defeat, they expressed their opinions, worked together and brainstormed, and the gaps and problems were clearly discussed.
On the morning of May 20th, Taiping Temple Football Stadium No.1 was the second stop of Hailian’s voyage against Chengdahong team. Before the game, according to the observation of the previous game, the general situation of the players who have already played has been understood, the players and lineups who have played first in Hailian have been clearly excluded, the positions and captains have been clearly defined, and opinions and suggestions on defense and counter-attack have been discussed one by one. At the same time, the backup players are required to be ready to play, and they are required to abide by the rules and change players to maintain a constant confrontation with speed and strength on their opponents. According to the principle of "not for winning or losing, but for loving", personal physical safety always comes first. Regardless of adversity and prosperity, we should strive for the upper reaches, and we must fight against our opponent’s soldier sword spirit every field, not necessarily winning, and never giving up.
In the first half, based on defense, Shanghai United put up a 134-player formation for the midfield without a striker. In the midfield, it began to mark people and add defense to force a big red team, making it difficult for opponents to move forward easily and comfortably. At the same time, considering the small size of the eight-man system, the front waist is more than 20 meters to kill the opponent’s restricted area, and the sprinting players with speed, physical strength and acceleration ability are arranged in the front waist position, and the 1331 formation evolved during the counterattack. Into a big red team, make full use of the players’ personal physical strength, speed, ball control ability, long team time, skilled team cooperation and high tacit understanding, constantly attack each other in the midfield, and also play a long left-hand speed to cross the midfield quickly and launch a rapid attack on Hailian. In the third minute, the defense was deformed and was crossed by the opponent, and easily scored 1 goal. The midfield and the right area were suppressed and scored another goal in the 17th minute. Hailian used counterattack, and "Feng Ge" made a far-corner shot, hit the post and caused a serial collision, and recovered a goal. Five minutes later, Chengdahong Team No.9 completed a beautiful performance of individual player’s ability, from the midfield to the bottom along the right side of Hailian, and then took the ball horizontally to the front of the small restricted area, beautifully passing through four defenders and pushing another goal.
In the second half, Chengdahong team removed the No.9 player from the midfield organization, and the two sides fought for each other in the midfield. Chengdahong team made full use of cooperation and personal rapid breakthrough, causing threats several times in a row and once scored a goal. Hailian quickly organized a counterattack to complete a beautiful pass and moved back to 1 goal. Cheng Dahong once again used the long pass to the bottom, and the avant-garde quickly ran to the bottom to complete the last goal of the game.
In this game, the sea wing lost 2:5, which is also a true manifestation of the overall strength of the audience, and there is an obvious gap in strength. First, judging from the on-site performance, Cheng Dahong’s personal physical strength, which is the most basic and first ability to play football, is generally ahead, and its speed and strength are better. Second, half of the ball appeared, and Hailian players basically couldn’t outrun their opponents many times. Even if they ran, they could touch the ball first, but they couldn’t hold the ball many times under the anti-interference of their opponents. Third, the opponent’s individual soldiers have repeatedly completed one-on-one, one-on-two crossing, and two-on-two touching ball crossing, and several positions lack the ability to take the initiative to make up the position after losing the position. Fourth, the player’s personal technical ability limits the ability to receive and control the high ball. Cheng Dahong’s avant-garde is in an absolute advantage in receiving and controlling a long pass and throwing a high ball. Fifth, the cooperation between players is not skilled. After touching the ball in the standing position, there are too few points to meet the running position, which causes insufficient threat pressure to the opponent. Sixth, before the game, based on the weak team of Hailian, the defensive midfield formation was put forward, and the practical operation pressure was high, which made it too late to withdraw from the position to participate in the defense. The control of the midfield was weak, and the Hailian defender was suppressed to play, and the team became a big red team. The defensive situation was very passive.
