Up to now, four fireworks and firecrackers sales units have been inspected, and no illegal activities have been found yet. In the next step, Xincheng Branch of Yizheng Market Supervision Bureau of Jiangsu Province will continue to strengthen the quality supervision of fireworks and firecrackers, severely crack down on illegal activities of selling fake and shoddy fireworks and firecrackers, standardize the market operation order, and ensure the safety of market consumption. (Qi Qi, Market Supervision Bureau, Yizheng City, Jiangsu Province)
The pale Tuocha on the left of the picture is bad tea that has been mildewed, and the high-quality aged Pu ‘er on the right.
Pu ‘er tea is more valuable as a cultural relic than tea itself in the eyes of collectors, which makes many tea merchants fake old Pu ‘er tea.
The tea fermented after large leaves are planted in bulk is commonly known as Pu ‘er tea.
This is the so-called 30-year-old fake "golden marble"
Pu ‘er tea is hailed as an "antique" that can be drunk, and many people believe that the more it is stored, the more valuable it is. Illegal businessmen seize the opportunity to use various means to turn new tea into old tea at high prices. According to experts in the industry, exaggerating the year, making a musty smell in a wet warehouse and adding chemicals are the most commonly used methods in the market. In addition, by changing the packaging, non-brand old tea is faked as brand old tea.
In the past 30 years, "Golden Marbles" have won hundreds of dollars.
Uncovering the Fake: The "Golden Marbles" came into the market only after 1992.
Zou Jiaju, executive vice president and secretary general of Yunnan Tea Association, told the reporter: "A friend told me with great interest that he spent hundreds of yuan to buy a 30-year-old’ golden marble’ and invited me to have a drink. I laughed at him for being cheated."
In order to prove his judgment, Zou Jiaju told the reporter a history: in 1992, Xiang Jinshan, Geng Qingguo and Zhai Yuanhong, employees of Kunming Tea Factory under Yunnan Tea Import and Export Corporation, jointly designed a three-piece stamping machine to produce a 5-gram disposable Miniature Tuocha with the official name of "mini" (English mini) at that time. Later, it was orally renamed as "Golden Marbles" and later filed a technical patent with the State Patent Office. Later, Zhai Yuanhong designed a two-piece stamping machine and applied for the corresponding technical patent. "It can be seen that the’ Golden Marbles’ will not be available until after 1992. How can there be a’ Golden Marbles’ with a 30-year shelf life? Therefore, the’ golden marble’ that my friend said has been stored for 30 years is by no means true. " Zou Jiaju said positively.
80-year-old tea still has pectin
Expose the fake: pectin will evaporate if it is stored for more than 30 years.
Tea contains a certain amount of pectin, but with the passage of time, microorganisms will gradually decompose pectin. For old tea with a storage period of more than 30 years, pectin has long been transformed and volatilized. However, some teas on the market that claim to be decades old, if you look carefully, still have pectin. Obviously, such teas must have lied about their age.
"pectin is the main substance that constitutes the interlayer of tea cells. It is an amorphous colloid with strong hydrophilicity, adhesion and softness, which can make adjacent cells stick together. In the process of tea kneading, cells are broken and pectin comes out. " Zou Jiaju said: "During the Republic of China, there was no power equipment in Xishuangbanna tea area, and the pressed tea processing relied on human stone molds. The artificial pressure is limited, and the pressed tea in the period without electricity is relatively loose, which depends on the adhesion of pectin to a certain extent. With the passage of time, microorganisms will gradually decompose pectin. The pectin of old tea with a storage period of more than 30 years has long been transformed and volatilized, and the connection of tea pieces mainly depends on the pull of shape shaping. In addition, other impurities are often based on pectin, pectin volatilizes, and fluff or other impurities will be reduced accordingly. "
Zou Jiaju told the reporter an example: "A friend invited me to have tea, and it was agreed in advance that it was decades-old tea. Tea is packed in a well-designed paper seal, about 10 grams. He introduced that this tea has been aged for more than 80 years, and the value of a bubble is 1500 yuan. ""Well, it was in the early years of the Republic of China when tea was made. I saw that two thirds of the tea leaves were caked and one third had been scattered. After careful observation, the connecting pectin in the caked part is still working. Obviously, this is a piece of tea with false age. "
The truth of "20-year-old tea" in bud head explosion
Uncover the fake: there will be no buds in the tea in 1985.
Zou Jiaju also told an example of a 3-year-old tea pretending to be a 20-year-old tea: "In the Spring Festival of 2005, my friend’s family spent 3,000 yuan to buy two pieces of Pu ‘er cake tea that was said to have been produced before 1985. After brewing, the tea tastes bitter and has a light smell of pile fermentation. The tea soup is full of fluff and a faint smell of smoke. It can be concluded that the storage time of this tea is not more than 3 years, because only the storage life is very short.
There is also a historical background to prove that the age of this tea is not 20 years. You know, from 1983 to 1985, the price of bud tips in sun-dried green tea was very high, and the market was good. When processing pressed tea of raw tea, manufacturers would use a little bud tips to spread the flour, but there would definitely be no white bud tips in the middle and back of the tea. Under normal circumstances, Pu ‘er tea cakes and Pu ‘er tea bricks are not even sprinkled.
It was not until around 1995 that the buds were proved to be too low in polyphenols to produce Pu ‘er tea, and these once noble buds and young leaves were gradually squeezed into all kinds of pressed teas with thick and big bodies. The two tea cakes bought by my friend’s family were pressed into the bud head from the outside. Obviously, it could not have been produced before 1985, at least after the price of the bud head was reduced in 1995. "Zou Jiaju said.
"Most of the old tea in the market is fake."
Zou Jiaju said that some so-called experts are completely irresponsible in writing books. If they have any "goods" in their hands, they will fabricate history and raise prices. "Some maps are too outrageous. The production of Fenghuang Tuocha in Nanjian was in the 1990 s, but it was said by some people that it was in the 1970 s." Zou Jiaju said, "Most of the so-called aged Pu ‘er tea sold in the market now is not true. Pu’ er tea consumers, especially Pu’ er tea operators, can’t buy tea only by ear, only by attractive labels, and they should be carefully identified. "
Pu-erh fermented in wet warehouse is moldy and "wet to death"
How to determine whether "wet warehouse tea" is good tea or bad tea? There are different voices in the tea industry, but they all agree that the practice of "wet warehouse tea pretending to be old tea" is to deceive consumers. In fact, some unscrupulous tea merchants moved their tea products into caves with high humidity in Yunnan, Guizhou and other places, accelerated aging and fermented mildew, hoping to speculate on the year and make old Pu ‘er tea, which not only violated the natural oxidation and fermentation law of tea endoplasm, but also made Pu ‘er tea lose its health care function, but also harmed people’s health.
Store wet caves for tea fermentation.
"’Wet warehouse’ refers to some tea merchants who store fresh raw Pu ‘er tea in places with poor ventilation and high humidity, such as kilns, air-raid shelters, earth houses, etc. In order to make fresh raw Pu ‘er tea be drunk early, which is easy to cause the breeding of Aspergillus in tea and accelerate the aging. This Aspergillus oxidation is called fermentation after wet warehouse. However, wet-stored Pu ‘er tea completely destroyed the tea fiber, changed the original essence of tea, and violated the law of natural oxidation and fermentation of tea endoplasm. " Chen Guozhang, a senior tea man and chairman of Tea Art Paradise (China) Co., Ltd., said that he always advocated storing Pu ‘er tea in a "dry warehouse", that is, the tea leaves were fermented in Fang Chen in an environment with moderate temperature and humidity, ventilation, freshness and no odor, which not only preserved the authenticity of Pu ‘er tea, but also increased the value of tea tasting.
High humidity makes tea moldy and wet to death.
In order to give reporters a vivid understanding, Chen Guozhang took out a sample used for giving lectures to members of Pu ‘er Club on weekdays-Pu ‘er tea aged in wet warehouse, and compared it with Pu ‘er tea stored in Fang Chen and well preserved. The reporter found that the Tuocha aged in the wet warehouse has been mildewed and grown hoarfrost, while another brick tea block aged in the wet warehouse is dim and yellow. The moldy Tuocha with hoarfrost smells like bran, while the yellow brick tea has a musty smell.
"Both are bad teas, which one is worse?" The reporter asked. Chen Guozhang replied: "The yellow one (different from the golden fungus" Jinhua ",which should be evaluated in a scientific and correct manner) is even worse, but the yellow one is not as conspicuous as the white one. In fact, the tea has been" wet to death "!"
Chen Guozhang explained that tea leaves stored in wet warehouses are prone to mildew due to too much water, and the tea leaves with severe mildew will grow hoarfrost. If they are not returned to the warehouse in time for air drying, hoarfrost will turn into yellow mold (Aspergillus flavus). Now, some people say that "the milder Pu ‘er tea is, the better", but it is not. The essence of moldy tea has deteriorated. Too much water encourages the growth of white, black, green and yellow bacteria. Drinking tea was supposed to help health, but drinking this kind of tea has the opposite effect.
Natural wet storage can age tea, and artificial fermentation will destroy tea products.
In addition, some tea industry experts do not deny the practice of wet storage, but it is difficult to master the technology of aging good tea products in wet storage. If the humidity is too high or inappropriate, the goods are prone to black mold and green mold and become bad tea. At present, many people in the market use bad "wet warehouse tea" to pretend to be old tea and dry warehouse old tea.
When the humidity exceeds 85%, tea will become moldy.
Shi Kunmu, a senior tea man in Taiwan Province and one of the top ten outstanding figures of Pu ‘er tea in the world, said: "If there are two pieces of dry-stored tea and wet-stored tea in the 1950s, I will definitely choose to drink dry-stored tea, but it doesn’t mean that wet-stored tea is not good, but my personal taste is different. In fact, the existing old tea is basically wet warehouse tea, and even the old tea with a cake of 200,000 yuan is wet warehouse tea. We must know that when the relative humidity of the air exceeds 85%, the stored Pu ‘er tea will be moldy. For example, the annual average relative humidity in Guangzhou is 88%. In the past, Guangdong and Hong Kong, which were important places for storing tea, were actually’ natural wet warehouses’, and there were basically no dry warehouses for old tea. "
Shi Kunmu told reporters that in Hong Kong, the so-called "warehousing" means that the environment of Pu ‘er tea is artificially controlled without natural storage. In Guangdong, there are similar ways to accelerate the aging of Pu ‘er tea, such as building a tin house and entering an air-raid shelter. "As long as the tea produced by these artificial methods is not too outrageous, there is no direct evidence of adverse effects on the human body according to the standards of modern medical inspection. Sometimes, the temperature, humidity and time are properly handled. However, it is not only immoral, but also harmful to people’s health to use the year of speculation and use fraud to mislead consumers.
It is difficult to age tea in wet warehouse.
Regarding the problem of "wet warehouse", Zou Jiaju, executive vice president and secretary-general of Yunnan Tea Association, also said that the prerequisite for microbial fermentation is a certain amount of water, temperature and oxygen. Without water, it will not ferment, just like there will be no life on the planet without water.
For example, he said, "I got together with the Hong Kong and Kowloon Tea Chamber of Commerce and said that some people sealed raw tea cakes with plastic paper decades ago, but it changed little after opening them. The reason is just like what we usually call a dry warehouse. The less moisture in the dry warehouse, the slower the aging speed of tea. Many Pu ‘er tea books hold the dry warehouse to the sky, but they don’t know that there is no certain moisture and humidity. Where can microorganisms survive and multiply? "
"I often observe in the fermentation workshops of Kunming Tea Factory, Xiaguan Tea Factory and Menghai Tea Factory. I have a good grasp of technology and normal white hair, which is good tea; The temperature of the pile is high, the tea embryo is burned, the temperature is low, and black hair appears on the surface of the pile, which is bad tea. " Zou Jiaju believes that these are due to improper technical mastery, too high or inappropriate humidity, and black mold and green mold appear in some goods. Because of the technical difficulty, how can we produce such a large batch of aged tea?
Year of speculation of tea merchants borrowing warehouses
"After rapid aging, raw tea products have the advantage of immediately reducing the bitterness, turning the soup red and making it smooth and sweet. The cooked tea can quickly remove the smell of the pile (new taste and fishy smell), and the soup is smooth and has obvious old fragrance. What they have in common is that the pungent taste of new tea can disappear quickly when they enter the warehouse. " Although Shi Kunmu affirmed the "wet warehouse", he said that there are five negative effects in warehousing: the storage process is costly and the possibility of mildew is greatly increased; Appearance and cake surface gloss disappear; The smell of warehouse will never disappear; The same batch of tea has great differences in aroma, taste and appearance; Compared with the tea that has not been put into the warehouse, the smell of the warehouse is stringy and the aroma of the taste is lost.
"It is not necessarily bad to enter the warehouse, but entering the warehouse is often used by tea merchants as a means of hype year to mislead consumers into wrong ideas." Shi Kunmu said that individual businessmen, driven by profit, poured a lot of water on the finished Pu ‘er tea or cast other color-changing substances, or put it directly on the wet ground to make it grow mold. After aging, it not only lost the charm of storage, but also did not have the health care effect of Pu ‘er tea.
Quickly make "aged tea" by boiling water and insolating.
Make old tea with chemicals
In fact, it is even more abominable to make money by pretending to be old tea than by using wet warehouse tea, and even using chemicals to make old tea. Chen Guozhang said that "aging" at high temperature has become the latest counterfeiting method. They put plates of raw tea sprayed with water and containers filled with water into iron boxes, and then exposed them at high temperature, thinking that the iron boxes were not high enough in temperature and humidity, and then poured water into the hot iron boxes, and repeated operations, in order to quickly "age" Pu ‘er tea. "In summer in the south, such a rapid Pu ‘er tea can achieve the effect of three months to five years. Besides, after such high temperature baking? The Pu ‘er tea made is ruddy in color and has a high selling price. "
Moreover, "making water old" is an upgraded version of "wet warehouse Pu ‘er". Chen Guozhang told reporters that they not only stored Pu ‘er raw tea in Fang Chen in underground kilns, air-raid shelters, earthen houses and other places with poor ventilation and high humidity, but also artificially sprinkled water on the tea to make the fermentation speed faster after wet storage. "I have personally been to the old kiln, and some sanitary conditions are very poor. The tea has been moldy for a long time."
A month and a half ago, the reporter tasted this kind of wet barn to make old tea at a friend’s home. This so-called brick of Chinese tea cultural revolution (250g/piece) with a storage age of more than 20 years has a retail price of more than 4,000 yuan/piece in Fangcun tea market. It looks neat on the surface and doesn’t smell musty. However, experts from the same industry knew at a glance that it was "wet goods". When the soup was opened, it tasted bitter and musty, and the bitterness persisted in the mouth for a long time, which was difficult to fade. Experts say that the appearance of old tea made in this wet warehouse has been well handled, which has deceived many people. The tea artificially stored in the wet warehouse has a pungent smell after opening the soup, and the soup is black and mixed, and the throat is locked. The dry tea sees green, black and red mildew spots, and the bottom of the leaves is sticky after brewing.
Soaking tea with potassium permanganate
Zheng Bingji, chairman of Yunnan Pu ‘er Tea (Group) Co., Ltd., said in an interview that some fake Pu ‘er teas are even more "horrible". They steamed the prepared and processed tea again. After steaming at high temperature, they threw it into those brick kilns and tile kilns that were already closed for ants to bite. The tea was rotten and the paper was rotten, and then dried again. The Mongolian said, "We are rotten."
Zheng Bingji gave an example to reporters: "One day in 2005, a friend came to me mysteriously and handed me something. I took my friend’s’ baby’ and carefully opened it layer by layer. A big musty smell came to my nose, and the whole thing had rotted away. There were traces of insects crawling on it and Baba pulled out by insects. I felt sick. People who might not understand it thought it was a century-old tea, but people who knew tea felt sick. This is not tea, this is garbage! "
Key points of tea age identification
First look at outsourcing paper and printing: the printing color of paper in every era is irreplaceable, and its particularity is even more impossible to counterfeit because of the weathering of paper and printing history. In addition, the internal flying paper is also related to printing, which is the same as outsourcing paper and printing. What is more special is that the internal flying paper is embedded in tea products? Yes, under normal circumstances, you can’t change it.
At the same time, molds, including stone molds, iron molds, wood molds, etc., have their special appearance and process in each era, which has a profound impact on the aging of tea products. However, the matching technique of tea cyanine varies with the background of each era. A comprehensive judgment with the pressing mold can be used as an auxiliary condition for the identification of Pu ‘er tea year.
Dry-stored Pu ‘er tea is tightly knotted, evenly fermented, glossy and moist. When you tap the tea cake with your hand, the sound is crisp and neat, and the tea soup is clear and bright, sweet and refreshing, and has no odor. Wet-stored Pu ‘er tea is loose and dull in color. If there is too much water, the surface of the tea leaves will be covered with frost, or the tea leaves will breed mold from the inside out, which has a strong pungent taste, alkaline taste and musty taste. The tea soup is turbid like cooked tea and tastes like acupuncture.

Although Manchester City has already won the championship ahead of schedule, the competition between Arsenal and Manchester City this season makes people feel that the competition in the Premier League is still fierce.
If Arsenal win the championship, there will be three different championship teams in the Premier League in the past four seasons, which is a proof of the healthy development of the league. Manchester City won the championship again, and Blue Moon won five championships in six seasons. Suddenly, the Premier League looks more and more like Bundesliga or Ligue 1.
Finally, with the end of the season, Manchester City easily won five league titles in six seasons, and the idea that the Premier League is a competitive top league feels ridiculous. If klopp’s Liverpool hadn’t driven Manchester City from the Premier League title in 2020 with superhuman efforts, Guardiola’s team might have won the Premier League title for six consecutive times.
Then we saw the situation similar to that of France and Germany. Paris Saint-Germain will win the Ligue 1 championship for the ninth time in 11 seasons, while Bayern Munich is expected to win 11 consecutive championships, although they are only one point ahead of Dortmund at present. There is also Italy between 2012 and 2020, and Juventus won the Serie A championship for nine consecutive years.
However, there is an important difference between Manchester City’s dominance in the Premier League and other leagues, that is Guardiola.
Yes, Manchester City is dominant, but this is largely because Blue Moon has one of the greatest coaches of all time and built the whole club structure with Guardiola as the center. For other teams, there is at least one hope that once Guardiola leaves, Manchester City will struggle for at least a period of time before it can re-establish this level of advantage.
But this is not the case with Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich, who often change their head coaches. Even if these coaches are not suitable candidates or are considered to be failures, the team can always win in the domestic league. Similarly, Juventus, Sari won the Serie A championship in his only season in charge of Juventus, although people have been uncertain whether he is suitable for this role. A few weeks later, Surrey was dismissed as a matter of course. Similarly, kovac, Garti and Blanco have all won championships in Bayern or Paris in the past seven years.
These clubs have great advantages over other rivals, both economically and historically, or both. They can easily win the league championship without anything special. But Manchester City has not done this, partly because other Premier League clubs also have huge wealth, and Manchester City has no absolute advantage. Relatively speaking, the spending power of Paris Saint-Germain can dwarf that of any other French team. And Bayern, who have often signed the best players from their only real rival Dortmund for several years.
Let’s put it this way: If Manchester City’s coaches rotate among Ancelotti, kovac and Frick, just like Bayern from 2016 to 2021, it’s hard to imagine that they can absolutely rule the Premier League.
However, English football would like to know whether this season will become a turning point and affect the outside world’s view of Manchester City.
So far, Manchester City’s dominance has been encouraged and even welcomed by many fans. Manchester City is not hated like most strong teams. On the contrary, because they beat Liverpool, Manchester United and recently Arsenal, they were praised by fans of other clubs.
Many fans feel the same way about Manchester City as ordinary people, and always instinctively base themselves on certain people. No matter in our personal life or professional career, when these people achieve great achievements, they will always arouse certain emotions. Manchester City is like those talented, rich or successful people. They have achieved success, but they will not be rejected by others.
This may depend on the age of the fans. Fans in their thirties have hated Manchester United and Chelsea since childhood, mainly because of their success, while older fans will hate Liverpool for similar reasons. The crowd of fans will make it difficult for them to support these clubs and prefer Manchester City. Many fans are still numb to Manchester City. Besides, no matter how old a person is, Tottenham Hotspur fans prefer to see Manchester City win the league title rather than Arsenal because of the long-term local competition.
For young fans, many of them have learned about the dominance of Manchester City in different degrees in the past 10 years, and they tend to have more hostility.
We should admit that the fans of many clubs think very little. They don’t care whether Manchester City or other teams won the league title. Manchester City also played well under Guardiola, and many neutral fans felt that their success was more satisfactory, for example, more satisfactory than Mourinho’s Chelsea. Mourinho’s Chelsea has also become a champion after receiving huge financial support, but whether it is fair or not, the football style of Mourinho’s Blue Army is always considered not very good-looking.
Therefore, Manchester City participated in the fierce championship battle and prevented the spread of boring anger. This once again contrasts with the situation in Germany and France. Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain often win league titles easily, which makes local fans unhappy.
But there will always be a tipping point. Manchester City once again won the league title easily, this time against Arsenal, which is not a small club. This is the best season for the Gunners in the past 20 years.
There are other factors to consider. Manchester City is still defending itself. They are accused of violating more than 100 financial fair competition rules in the Premier League. Will this make fans of other teams feel less numb to Manchester City?
Then there is the related issue of state sponsorship ownership. In 2021, the Saudi Arabian government led the acquisition of Newcastle United, and Manchester United is also discussing the acquisition with Al Thani, a member of Qatar royal family, which may follow the same path as Manchester City, making this issue the focus of attention.
When Manchester City was acquired by Abu Dhabi Group in 2008, the world at that time was very different from now. The popularity of social media is much lower, and people’s awareness of sports scandals and other issues is much weaker. However, Newcastle and Manchester United have begun to worry some fans that it is impossible to succeed in the Premier League without the support of national wealth.
Manchester City’s continued success under Abu Dhabi will only deepen this idea. If Newcastle also starts to win the championship, fans may be more hostile to this ownership model.
Under the current circumstances, if we consider the competition in the Premier League standings, we will feel even more desperate. Liverpool scored 97 points and 92 points in 2018-19 and 2021-22 respectively, but they didn’t win the championship in either season, which is a bit strange. Their points are the fourth and seventh in the history of the Premier League, but they are not enough to beat Manchester City.
The total points needed to win the Premier League title have been completely changed by Manchester City, and almost all other teams feel that this point is impossible to achieve. Manchester City may score 94 points (2.5 points per game) this season. If they do, then in the past six seasons, Manchester City will occupy four seats in the top seven in the Premier League standings. During this period, only Liverpool has narrowed the gap within 10 points, and there may be Arsenal this season. In these six seasons, Manchester City also won four Carling Cups and one FA Cup (which may soon become two), greatly blocking the possibility of other clubs winning trophies.
If we return to Guardiola again, he will coach Manchester City during this time. Before his arrival, Manchester City occasionally won the Premier League title, in 2012 and 2014 respectively, until Guardiola led the team to win the first Premier League title in 2018. There is reason to believe that once Guardiola leaves, Manchester City may return to the previous level, not the current level. Look at Manchester United after Sir Alex Ferguson left. Despite the huge investment, since the last season of Ferguson’s coaching in 2013, Manchester United is still far from winning the Premier League title again.
Football is cyclical, as Manchester United and Liverpool can prove. After the end of the ruling era, the club will encounter a barren period. Manchester City’s wealth and wise management will prevent them from falling so deeply, but when Guardiola finally leaves, they may still encounter difficulties.
Prior to this, only some selected and wealthy clubs can reach the perfect competitive level in some way, and it is possible to beat this Manchester City.
How important is Manchester City’s dominance? Look at how people feel when they lift the Premier League trophy. Still don’t mind? This in itself is a sign that Manchester City has achieved incredible success. Or will the fans start to feel annoyed? Because apart from this club, the league title seems to be getting out of reach.
Eindhoven has shown a strong sprint ability recently, and currently ranks third in the league with a record of 19 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses. Although the team is still behind Ajax, in fact, Eindhoven’s league points are the same as Ajax’s. This game is very crucial for both sides, because there are only the last five rounds in the Dutch League, and there is an eight-point difference between the two teams in Feyenoord, the top of the league. It can be said that no matter which side loses, it will withdraw from the competition for the league title in advance.
In the last five games, Eindhoven has won four games and drawn one, with a remarkable record. In the last game, the team beat Frandan 3-2 away and won four consecutive victories.Judging from the course of the game, the home game of Frendam also caused Eindhoven a lot of trouble. Although the overall strength of Eindhoven was far stronger than that of Frendam, and the team had already achieved a two-goal lead in the first half, it was only that the players of Eindhoven were obviously not focused in the second half, and Frendam made two quick attacks in a row, which easily penetrated Eindhoven’s defense and pulled back two goals. Fortunately, the midfielder Thiel helped Eindhoven with a header.
Ajax’s recent state is also good, with 18 wins, 8 draws and 3 losses. With the advantage of goal difference, Ajax beat Eindhoven to the second place in the league. Ajax’s competitive ability has been greatly affected by the sale of several main players in the winter break, but after all, the team still has many excellent young players. Thanks to the rapid growth of young players, the team still has a certain ability to compete for the championship.
It is worth mentioning that Ajax gets more signing funds by training young players, and fans and friends should have heard about it long ago. Although the team has sold many young players this season, the front, middle and back three lines need to be replenished with fresh blood as soon as possible, Ajax Club will not stop selling players after the end of the season. The outstanding striker Brian and Bellwin will probably transfer and leave after the end of the season, and several main midfielders have also received quotations from other teams. It is conceivable.
For the first time this season, Eindhoven beat Ajax 2-1 away. In the last ten meetings, Eindhoven won four, drew two and lost four, which was even with Ajax. After this six-point war, these two teams will hold a championship dialogue in the Dutch Cup final immediately. Two consecutive hard battles are a big test for both players and head coaches. Since ancient times, the strong dialogue has been about players’ improvisation and psychological quality. Although Eindhoven defeated Ajax for the first time, Ajax has always occupied the initiative in the game. Considering that the recent state of the two teams is quite good, Moreover, there are not too many problems exposed at both ends of the attack and defense. Eindhoven, who has home court advantage, should be the one with the upper hand. As long as the team can maintain a stable defensive state and consume the physical strength of the main players of the other side first, Ajax does not have many bench players to replace. I believe that Eindhoven still has a good chance to complete the season double play for Ajax.
Juventus’ recent state has declined, with a record of 18 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses, ranking third in the league. Because the team’s appeal application was passed, the fifteen points that had been fined before were returned to Juventus. This result also led to AC Milan, which was originally ranked fourth in the league, being directly squeezed out of the top four. It can be said that the suspense of Serie A for four has entered a white-hot stage.
In the last match, Juventus held a 1-1 draw with Sporting Lisbon in the second leg of the Europa League quarter-final.As Juventus beat their opponents 1-0 at home in the first leg, the team finally advanced to the semi-final of the Europa League with a total score of 2-1 in two rounds. Because Manchester United, the original favorite to win the championship, was unexpectedly eliminated, Juventus replaced Manchester United as the favorite team to win the championship after promotion. However, this Europa League was regarded as the favorite team to win the championship, but it seems that luck has always been bad. Manchester United had a good promotion prospect, and as a result, several main defenders were injured, and they directly lost the promotion places that they were about to get. The thickness of Juventus’ lineup is also not too thick. If the main force is damaged because of multi-line operations, the team is likely to lose more than the gain.
Napoli has just been eliminated from the Champions League, and the players who have been eliminated this time are bound to suffer a serious morale blow. However, Napoli still has a lot of points advantage at the league level. At least there is still a 14-point difference between the team and Lazio, the second place. As long as it can keep from falling into a losing streak, it should be a cinch to win the Serie A championship.
It is worth mentioning that the Napoli striker Osman has returned from injury, and Osman also had a good performance in the last game. If other teammates were not in a low state, Naples would not have been eliminated by AC Milan. Osman is the most crucial point in Naples. Although Quevara Tzko has also contributed a lot of goals to the team this season, Quevara Tzko can’t be compared with Osman in terms of personal ability and tactical role, as long as the follow-up eight.
For the first time this season, Juventus suffered a bitter defeat 1-5 away from home. In the last ten encounters, Juventus won four games, drew two games and lost four games, and there was no advantage at all. Although Juventus also needs points, compared with single-line Napoli, Juventus is already at a disadvantage in terms of schedule, and Naples is a team with sufficient impact. This defense line of Juventus is difficult to stop the opponent’s continuous offensive. In addition, several front-line players of Juventus are in a very general state recently. I believe that Naples is likely to be the main player in this campaign and finish the season double play for Juventus.
There are football events in the Olympic Games.
Olympic Games refers to the Olympic Games, which is sponsored by the International Olympic Committee, the largest comprehensive sports meeting in the world and the most influential sports event in the world.
The history of the Olympic Games can be traced back to ancient Greece more than two thousand years ago, but the modern Olympic Games began in 1896. At the end of 19th century, Frenchman Coubertin put forward the initiative of hosting the modern Olympic Games, which was also held under his efforts, so Coubertin was also called "the father of modern Olympics".
On June 23, 1894, when Coubertin and 79 representatives from 12 countries decided to establish the International Olympic Committee and create the Olympic Movement, this feat was once the object of irony, but now the Olympic Games has become a festival celebrated by all, and the Olympic Movement has attracted the enthusiasm of 202 countries and regions.
The Olympic Committee decided to hold the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, and the venue was Athens, Greece.
Subsequently, the Olympic Games kept its frequency every four years, but there were four special events:
1. The Olympic Games in 1916, 1940 and 1944 were suspended due to world wars;
2. The 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games was postponed to 2021 due to the epidemic.
In the continuous development, the number of Olympic events is also increasing. In 2021, the Tokyo Olympic Games set up 33 major events and 339 minor events, and finally produced 339 gold medals.
Football competition is one of the earliest events in the Olympic Games. By the Atlanta Olympic Games in 1996, women’s events were added to the football competition. So far, the Olympic football competition was divided into men’s football competition and women’s football competition.
However, the Olympic football events are limited by the entry conditions. In 1992, the International Olympic Committee compromised with FIFA, and the Olympic football game became a game for players under 23. In 1993, the International Olympic Committee and FIFA reached an agreement: FIFA respected the age limit of 23, and FIFA allowed each team to have three over-age players.
It is worth mentioning that in the women’s football competition of the 1996 Olympic Games, the China women’s football team lost to the American women’s football team in the final and won the silver medal. The China women’s football team who participated in the Olympic Games for the first time set a good record. In contrast, from the first Olympic Games to the 32nd Tokyo Olympic Games, China men’s soccer team participated in the Olympic Games twice, once in 1988, and was shortlisted by virtue of its strength; Once in 2008, I was shortlisted as the host.
At the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, Brazil won the gold medal, while Spain, Mexico and Japan won 2-4 respectively. The Canadian women’s football team won the gold medal, while Sweden, the United States and Australia won 2-4 respectively.
The above is an introduction about Olympic football.
