Why Auditors Never Caught FIFA’s Corruption

For accounting enthusiasts (or people simply in the accounting industry), the corruption scandal that sent waves through a multi-billion dollar non-profit known as FIFA with hundreds of member associations, is a fantastic case study in fraud and corruption. For football enthusiasts, the corruption scandal is a peek into the dark arts and methods beyond the field. But both of these enthusiasts and industries have little in common, and are unable to describe what is happening on their end to each other. I hope in this article to bridge that gap, as an accounting student pursuing my CFE and a massive football fan.

Football Manager 2019’s new features – and if they’re worth it.  

Football Manager is once again due another game in the franchise. On November 2nd. As always Sports Interactive have introduced new features to the game and they’ve created some videos on the new features.

Tom Davidson and Curtis Morton host The FM Show, which discusses FM19’s new features.

There is a new feel to the game, with new logo branding and merchandise. The much-loved ‘manager man’ retired and put you as the new manager adding more of a personal aspect to the game. They are offering 10% off the game as a pre-purchase, as well as access to the beta. However, I’m sure you can get the game for cheaper on other sites. The first video on their channel didn’t reveal too much information regarding new features, but they did announce that Football Manager are sponsoring Hashtag United, the YouTube football team that are attempting to take on the English pyramid.

This article really comes as no surprise, but after playing Football Manager for thousands of hours I thought I would explain why the Football Manager series is more than just a video game.

The Absurd Numbers of Lars Stindl

Stindl

Germany’s 2018 World Cup was really bad. They hadn’t been knocked out of the competition at the first stage since 1938, but after masterclass performances from Mexico and Sweden, the Champions were booted out of the competition. A lot of the blame was passed on Joachim Low and not selecting Leroy Sane despite being involved in over 30 goals in all competitions last season. He wasn’t the only key component missing from Germany’s squad, 29-year-old Lars Stindl who suffered a syndesmotic ligament tear in April. He may not have the highest of goal scoring records, just 6 times in the last Bundesliga campaign and 47 top-flight goals in his career, but Stindl’s defensive work makes him one of the most unusually gifted forwards to work with.

Where it began

On June 15th, Leeds United appointed Marcelo Bielsa as Head Coach after Paul Heckingbottom was sacked because he was awful, simply awful.

Saying that though, I’m sure the rumoured £67K a week helps, right?

Bielsa is widely regarded as a footballing genius & has been given an almost god like status in certain places, but can it happen for Leeds? Well, the early signs are showing it can. I’ll explain a little more below.
