Uefa has announced its new round of research awards. These include:
Effect of hot/cold temperatures on referees' ability to perform (My comment: if you're rubbish, you will be rubbish if it's hot or cold)
Protect her knee: exploring the role of football-specific fatigue on dynamic knee stability in female youth football players (My comment: Surprisingly this project is not being headed by Ron Knee of Neasden FC of the North Circular Relegation League, but by Mark De Ste Croix).
Anti-violence supporter groups in Serbian football: an ethnology case study. (My comment: presumably this is a small N study).
