Knowledge About Table Soccer: Knockout Stage of Performance

Knockout stage of performance

Semi-finalsIn the first semi-final, at Old Trafford on 22 June, England won the toss and elected to bat. The English batsmen mistimed many balls and used the bat's edge frequently, as the restrictive Indian bowling led England to score 213 (all out, 60 overs). Graeme Fowler (33 from 59 balls, 3 fours) top scored, and Kapil Dev took 3 for 35 in eleven overs, with Mohinder Amarnath and Roger Binny taking two wickets each. In reply, Yashpal Sharma (61 from 115 balls, 3 fours, 2 sixes) and Sandeep Patil (51 from 32 balls, 8 fours) made half-centuries, as India reached their target in 54.4 overs, winning by 6 wickets in a classic victory over the previous tournament's runners-up. Mohinder Amarnath (46 from 92 balls, 4 fours, 1 six) picked up the man-of-the-match award for his all round performance, which saw him add 46 runs to his earlier bowling success (2/27 in 12 overs).

The second semi-final, between Pakistan and the West Indies, was staged at The Oval on the same day. West Indies won the toss and invited Pakistan to bat, whom they restricted to just 184 (8 wickets, 60 overs). Mohsin Khan (70 from 176 balls, 1 four) fought his way past 50 against the superb West Indies Bowling (he was the only Pakistani batsman to reach 50). Malcolm Marshall (3/28) and Andy Roberts (2/25) starred with the ball. The West Indies innings was based around a superb innings by Viv Richards (80 from 96 balls, 11 fours, 1 six), who took the man-of-the-match award, and an unbeaten half-century by Larry Gomes (50 from 100 balls, 3 fours), as the defending champions reached their target for the loss of just two wickets.

FinalIn the final, India lost the toss and were asked to bat first against a West Indies. Only Krishnamachari Srikkanth (38 from 57 balls) and Mohinder Amarnath (26 from 80 balls) put up any significant resistance as Roberts, Marshall, Joel Garner and Michael Holding ripped through the Indian batsmen, ably supported by Gomes. Surprising resistance by the tail allowed India to compile 183 (all out, 54.4 overs). The Indian bowling exploited the weather and pitch conditions perfectly to bowl out the West Indies for 140 from 52 overs, winning by 43 runs and completing one of the most stunning upsets in cricket history. It still remains the lowest ever total successfully defended in a World Cup final. Amarnath and Madan Lal each took three wickets. Viv Richards, was West Indies' top scorer with 33 from 28 balls. Amarnath was the most economical bowler, conceding just 12 runs from his seven overs, while taking 3 wickets, and was once again awarded the Man of the Match award for his all-round performance. There was no 'Man of the Series' awarded in 1983.

Structure of performance

The piece is divided into nine sections played with only three definite pauses. Strauss named the sections after selected chapters of Friedrich Nietzsche's novel Thus Spoke Zarathustra:

"Einleitung, oder Sonnenaufgang" (Introduction, or Sunrise)

"Von den Hinterweltlern" (Of the Backworldsmen)

"Von der groen Sehnsucht" (Of the Great Longing)

"Von den Freuden und Leidenschaften" (Of Joys and Passions)

"Das Grablied" (The Song of the Grave)

"Von der Wissenschaft" (Of Science and Learning)

"Der Genesende" (The Convalescent)

"Das Tanzlied" (The Dance Song)

"Nachtwandlerlied" (Song of the Night Wanderer)These selected chapters from Nietzsche's novel highlight major moments of the character Zarathustra's philosophical journey in the novel. The general storylines and ideas in these chapters were the inspiration used to build the tone poem's structure.

The piece starts with a sustained double low C on the double basses, contrabassoon and organ. This transforms into the brass fanfare of the Introduction and introduces the "dawn" motif (from "Zarathustra's Prologue", the text of which is included in the printed score) that is common throughout the work: the motif includes three notes, in intervals of a fifth and octave, as CGC (known also as the Nature-motif). On its first appearance, the motif is a part of the first five notes of the natural overtone series: octave, octave and fifth, two octaves, two octaves and major third (played as part of a C major chord with the third doubled). The major third is immediately changed to a minor third, which is the first note played in the work (E flat) that is not part of the overtone series.

"Of the Backworldsmen" begins with cellos, double-basses and organ pedal before changing into a lyrical passage for the entire section. The next two sections, "Of the Great Longing" and "Of Joys and Passions", both introduce motifs that are more chromatic in nature.

The strings prevail in "The Song of the Grave", which acts like a transition section to the next section.

"Of Science" features an unusual fugue beginning at measure 201 in the double-basses and cellos, which consists of all twelve notes of the chromatic scale. Measure 223 contains one of the very few sections in the orchestral literature where the basses must play a contra B (the lowest B on a piano), which is only possible on a 5-string bass or (less frequently) on a 4-string bass with a low-B extension.

"The Convalescent" acts as a reprise of the original motif, and ends with the entire orchestra climaxing on a massive chord.

"The Dance Song" features a very prominent violin solo throughout the section.

The end of the "Song of the Night Wanderer" leaves the piece half resolved, with high flutes, piccolos and violins playing a B major chord, while the lower strings pluck a C.

One of the major compositional themes of the piece is the contrast between the keys of B major, representing humanity, and C major, representing the universe. Because B and C are adjacent notes, these keys are tonally dissimilar: B major uses five sharps, while C major has none.

Background of performance

Madonna's first concert tour, The Virgin Tour, promoted her first two studio albums, Madonna and Like a Virgin. The tour was a commercial success, with Billboard Boxscore reporting a gross of US $3.3million. After the tour was over, Madonna started recording her third studio album, True Blue. Film director Daniel Kleinman, who presided over the shooting of the tour on video, submitted the footage to Warner Bros. Records, who decided to release it as a video album. Madonna Live: The Virgin Tour chronicled The Virgin Tour as shot at Cobo Arena in Detroit, Michigan on May 25, 1985.

Madonna, who was busy with True Blue and shooting for the comedy film Shanghai Surprise, was contacted by Kleinman to ask about her approval of the shot footage. She felt that the video "needed a proper introduction. I asked James Foley darling to shoot me saying something for adding it before the concert starts." Foley, who directed the music video of her song "Live to Tell", shot an introduction which was added at the beginning of the video. It portrayed Madonna in her first image makeover, with platinum blond curls, and conservative wardrobe. Madonna wanted to include a summation of her biographywhich was used at the beginning of The Virgin Tourto be added with the footage. Hence, with the footage, Madonna's voice was heard, declaring,

"I went to New York. I had a dream. I wanted to be a big star, I didn't know anybody, I wanted to dance, I wanted to sing, I wanted to do all those things, I wanted to make people happy, I wanted to be famous, I wanted everybody to love me. I wanted to be a star. I worked really hard, and my dream came true."

This was followed by the concert, beginning with "Dress You Up". The performances of "Angel", "Borderline" and "Burning Up" were removed from the track list of the video, as Kleinman believed that Madonna's performance was not her best in them. While shooting the tour on May 25, during the performance of "Like a Virgin", a fan suddenly came up on the stage and tried to get hold of Madonna, but was swiftly whisked away by security. Kleinman decided to keep the shot, as he felt that it illustrated the fanaticism which had grown around Madonna, and her popularity. The live performances of "Like a Virgin" and "Dress You Up" were released as music video on MTV to promote the video album. Both videos were nominated for "Best Choreography" at the 1986 MTV Video Music Awards. However, Madonna lost the award to Prince and The Revolution with their video "Raspberry Beret."

Team performance of table soccer

The 1978 league saw a return of the traditional top-of-the-table rivalry between Trans Tours Christchurch United and Mount Wellington, with the Christchurch side narrowly finishing top. The Mount led the league for long periods of the season, but this was largely due to Christchurch having played less games. The outstanding matches saw results go in the southerners' favour, and they became the first side to record a third league title. Nelson United were the Mount's bogey team again, holding on for a draw in the last game of the season to leave the Aucklanders in second place. They had previously upset the odds by beating Mount Wellington in the 1977 Chatham Cup final.

Both Blockhouse Bay and Eastern Suburbs greatly improved on their 1977 league performance to finish in the top four. In the case of Suburbs this was largely through the importation of English players Bryn Gunn and Steve Elliot from Nottingham Forest. Elliot made the most of his stint with Suburbs, scoring 17 times in just 12 matches.

Newly promoted Courier Rangers from Otahuhu in Auckland finished fifth, followed by North Shore United. Rangers played excellently at home, but had difficulty finding the net away, leaving them with a mid-table finish. Loss of squad members from the previous season weighed against Shore, who were unable to mount any substantial bid to retain their title. Nelson United finished seventh for the second year in a row, hampered by a seeming inability to score goals. Stop Out trailed them in eighth, largely a result of a dreadful away season which saw them win just one from eleven games on the road.

Just two years after being crowned champions, Wellington Diamond United only narrowly avoided the drop. A poor run of two wins in their final twelve games was a substantial indication of their peril. Hamilton returned to the regional leagues, despite having the league's top scorer, and they were joined in relegation by newly promoted Waterside and Woolston WMC. The Wharfies seemed to make a habit of losing matches where they seemed comfortably in control, losing six matches they had led and missing several penalties during the season. Woolston were outclassed throughout the season and never looked likely to avoid the drop.

An overview of table soccerMuhammad Nur Asyraffahmi bin Norsamri (born 4 May 2000) is a Bruneian international footballer who plays as a right-sided winger for Kota Ranger FC of the Brunei Super League.International career of table soccerAsyraf is one of the few players who have progressed to full international level since Stephen Ng's first foray into developing Brunei's young footballers in 2013. His contemporaries include Amin Sisa and Nazirrudin Ismail. Taking over from Ali Ismail, Ng won his first game against Guam 4-1 at the 2014 AFC U-16 Championship qualification round held in Laos. Although Nazirrudin scored in that game, Asyraf was left on the bench.Two years later at the July 2015 AFF U-16 Youth Championship, Asyraf played all five games at the group stage of the competition. The Young Wasps managed a draw against Timor-Leste, but lost the next four. Two months later, he was immediately promoted to the Brunei national under-19 football team along with several other under-16 teammates for the 2016 AFC U-19 Championship qualification matches in Myanmar. The age gap was proved to be too much as Brunei let in 18 goals in four games without reply.Asyraf was called up for the Under-19s for a double header in 2017, namely the 2017 AFF U-18 Youth Championship and also the 2018 AFC U-19 Championship qualification in Myanmar and South Korea respectively. He played in all four group games at the AFF tournament, scoring against the Philippines (3-2) and Vietnam (1-8). The Young Wasps finished fourth in the table with three points. A month later in Paju, Brunei lost the first three games in the AFC tournament, but managed to salvage a 2-2 draw against Timor-Leste via goals from Abdul Hariz Herman and Hanif Aiman Adanan.In 2018, Asyraf was selected to represent Brunei Under-21 for the 2018 Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy held in his home country in April. Coach Mario Rivera preferred to place Hanif Aiman Adanan on the right and Faiq Bolkiah as a lone striker, restricting Asyraf to only a single 45-minute appearance against Myanmar in the final group game. Brunei lost the crucial game 01 and failed to progress to the knockout phase.Asyraf received his first Under-23 callup in March 2019 for the 2020 AFC U-23 Championship qualification matches held in Vietnam. He did not play a part in the first game against the hosts where Brunei were drubbed 6-0. He was given a start by Stephen Ng in the next game against Thailand in which Thai rising star Suphanat Mueanta also featured, resulting in a 0-8 demolition. Things had gotten better for Asyraf in the final game against Indonesia when he was tasked to take a second-half penalty five minutes from time after a foul on Azreen Sa'oda by Muhammad Riyandi. Asyraf had his penalty saved and slotted the rebound wide, but Riyandi was judged to step out too early resulting in his dismissal. Azim Izamuddin Suhaimi scored the retake to put Brunei back in the game at 2-1. Brunei would subsequently lose in dramatic fashion as Nazirrudin Ismail's stoppage time penalty was saved by the opposition striker Dimas Drajad to keep the three points to Indonesia.After an outstanding 2018-19 campaign for Kota Ranger, Asyraf was selected for the full national team by Robbie Servais for the two-legged 2022 World Cup qualification matches against Mongolia in June 2019. Asyraf started both games opposite of Nazirrudin at the right side of a 4-3-3 formation. Brunei lost 2-3 on aggregate in the end, eliminating the Wasps from the 2022 World Cup and the 2023 Asian Cup.Club career of table soccerA graduate of IBTE, Asyraf has been with the national youth team setup since 2013 when he was sent to Myanmar for the 2013 AFF U-16 Youth Championship at the age of 13. His first league experience was the 2016 Brunei Premier League with Tabuan U17, finishing third in the league. He also had a hand in Tabuan U17's path to the FA Cup semifinals of that season with the winner against Jerudong FC in the previous round.In the next year, Asyraf's age group was pushed up to the 201718 Brunei Super League as Tabuan Muda 'A' and he managed to score nine goals against the likes of MS PDB and Kota Ranger FC. However the Young Wasps finished sixth at the league's conclusion, and Asyraf's age group was disbanded in the following season.Asyraf moved to Kota Ranger in the 2018-19 season, and this was the season when he finally emerged as one of the brightest talents in Brunei. He scored 10 goals for the season including a hattrick against IKLS FC on 16 November. In mid-season, he was invited to a trial at UiTM F.C. along with Azwan Ali Rahman. He then scored the winner in the final of the season's FA Cup to deliver Kota Ranger's maiden FA Cup triumph. In the final match of the regular season against champions MS ABDB, after an abandoned game in which he scored, he was crowned the Best Player of the league.
