The once-revered game types, such as Mark van Bommel, Gennaro Gattuso, or Jens Jeremies – graciously "Aggressive Leader", so Wade beisser, a busboy, types saw their task above all in the fact that the opponent inflicting pain – have it in modern football, hard. Because this has changed markedly in the last decade. According to the statistics Website Whoscored.com the average value of Fouls per game in the Bundesliga in 2009/10, then 33,95 per game, on 23,92 in the first round 2018/19 shrunk.
In the last ten years, the Foul-value is continually declining. This is due to the fact, that fighting spirit and passion are not essential footballers-characteristics and more, it has much more to do with the change in style of play of the teams. Gattusos hearty Fouls has nowadays supplanted in the public's perception of the desire to be an athletic defender, the abluchst skillfully the striker of the Ball.
if you do a sliding tackle, loses. This is a Credo that the national coach Joachim Löw claimed already a decade ago. And "Foul breaks Pressing," said Leipzig's Coach Ralf Rangnick. He wanted to say: Who wants to conquer the Ball, should prevent this absolutely Foul. When Defending in the own half, it is exactly the same. A free kick in their own half is always associated with a high risk.
the better the team, the less Fouls
the game is a faster, more intense, the body of the athlete athletic and toned, the number of Fouls increases. What at first seems like a contradiction, can be explained by the fact that the Teams are collecting more and more information about the opponent.
Comparing leagues, the Figures of the five top European, it is clear that in Germany the most is fouled, in England at least (2017/18).
in other words: Every 13 minutes in the Bundesliga for the foul whistle more than in the Premier League. Traditionally, the referees in England would abpfeifen less situations, means it is often. Keyword: English hardness. This alone is not the reason for the differences. In the Premier League, the quality of the individual players is currently simply better, you can solve more situations, without the need for a Foul to commit.
the better the team, the more ball security and the less uncontrolled shift situations and less work against the Ball needs to be done. The logical conclusion: the better the team, the less Fouls. For this purpose, the statistics speaks, that in Germany, Dortmund (206) and the Bavaria (212) at least fouled, and that in the Champions League, "only" 23,50 Fouls per game. (Sunday newspaper)
