In the current football trends Joe Dumars Pistons Jersey , trainers, sport writers and fans (and myself in my own small way) do a “new sport”, i.e. they like to compare the best overall performance of the greatest football champions. Until some time ago, in comparison to champions, Ronaldo and Messi had been used as a touchstone, while these days football fans exercise both their imagination and critical acumen on two international football stars, i.e. Neymar and Bale. I wish to start by saying that all trainers, sport writers or simple fans who wants to engage in a confrontation between Bale and Neymar face considerable difficulties, because they are two genuine “titans” on football.

The sectorial statistics (games played, goals, assists) help us in our opinion about individual players’ performance, but the final opinions (at least my personal opinion) go beyond mere statistics and description of the data. And since statistic has its own important impact, I'll start with them first. And I first observe that both Neymar and Bale reported a high incidence of injuries throughout the current football season (2013-2014).

Neymar was outside with other team members for a couple of weeks, whilst Bale had suffered leg muscle strains. However, after their return to their respective teams, the statistic offers the following info for each footballer:

1. Neymar played for Barcelona 29 games with 12 goals and 11 assists.
2. Bale played for Madrid 27 games, with 14 goals and 10 assists.
3. Neymar scored 72 goals in the Spanish league and UCL, while Bale has scored 65 goals in the same competitions.
4. Neymar’s average for the last months is around 16.6 percent, while Bale’s average is about 21.5 percent.

In conclusion, we can say that the statistic shows that Bale enjoyed a slight advantage over Neymar, who however is three years younger than his “rival.”

BEYOND THE STATISTICS

Statistics may say “something” about each of them, but not every thing is satisfactory. For instance, statistics do not tell us that Neymar and Bale are quite different in physical constitution (whilst their style reaches high levels of overall performance). Neymar is agile as a leopard, and has developed a formidable dribbling, ball control and speed.

Bale is of strong build and is really a extremely powerful wing forward, equipped with exceptional speed, dribbling and ball control. From the strictly physical standpoint, I'd say that they are “NOT COMPARABLE” to one another. Instead, from a stylistic standpoint, both Bale and Neymar are at the “frontier” of human possibility of ball control and speed of execution.

However, because of the peculiar physical traits that distinguish each of them, I'd say that Neymar has something extra to offer, i.e. he displays Much more Creative IMAGINATION and FANTASY than Bale, which is probably the legacy of the GREAT BRAZILIAN SOCCER School, which gave the world some footballers such as Pele and Roberto Rivellino, to mention just two names.

From the very first day that Martin Winterkorn became the new Chief Executive of Volkswagen AG he has made it clear that he means business. And just last month, he has ordered the scrapping of the scheduled preview of the new Passat in Germany?s capital not because of mechanical problem, electrical problem not even parts problem say defective VW ball joints but for the reason that he was not satisfied with the look and feel of the Passat. Winterkorn said, ?I don?t like to present car before it?s finished. That?s why I canceled the Berlin showing.?

For those who are not familiar with Winterkorn, he is the former Chief of Volkswagen?s luxury unit, Audi. And tomorrow at the company?s annual press conference, Winterkorn will finally discuss his plans for the Volkswagen brand.

The Volkswagen brand was primarily the reason why Winterkorn was placed as the new CEO of VW. It should be noted that Winterkorn was the man responsible for the remarkable turnaround of Audi and VW top brass feels that Winterkorn can do the same magic on the VW brand which has been losing hundreds of millions of euros at its German factories since 2005.

When Winterkorn assumes the CEO position in VW he also brought with him his entourage of loyal subjects from Audi which he rationalize by saying that his Audi design team can get the job done quickly.

According to Peter Braendle fund manager at Zurich-based Swisscanto Asset Management, which oversees the equivalent of $46 billion including Volkswagen stock, ?All of the Audi cars have a more trendy and modern design than Volkswagen. This Audi design team is strong. If they can do the same successful job at Volkswagen as with the Audi, then it will be marvelous.?

And tomorrow at the company?s annual press conference Volkswagen will report its detailed financial figures. Europe?s largest has reported last month that its 2006 net income has doubled to 2.75 billion euros or $3.61 billion USD due to the following: launching of new car models such as Audi?s Q7 sport-utility vehicle, disposal of a vehicle-rental division and a tax gain. The Audi unit was accounted for about half of the group profit earned by the Wolfsburg, Germany-based Volkswagen.

Shares of Volkswagen in Frankfurt increase by 3.60 euros or 3.7 percent to 100 euros which is considered to be the highest price obtained since July 8, 1998. VW?s stock has gained 16 percent for this year which is the third-best performance on Germany?s benchmark DAX Index.

The Passat Scrapped for Good?
Before the takeover of Winterkorn the Passat is a project headed by Wolfgang Bernhard, former CEO of VW who resigned last January due to the management shake-up that is happening inside Volkswagen.
