Ages become limitation among fat Ronaldo and 35-year-old David Beckham, who back to England team become the word “probably”

Monday, September 6th, 2010

It seems that 35-year old David Beckham was rejected by Fibro Capello. Early Capello said that 35-year-old Davey Becks is “Probably a little bit too old”. Now he show his attitude that he think England football door opened for young players, who need to play more games, gain more experience. This is undoubtedly the biggest blow for the fans and maybe David Beckham. Even Capello said the relationship is really good, we can not ignore the a range of issues this raises – does age matter in football?

This problem is not only happened in David, also fat Ronaldo has missed such problem. As the best player who lead Brazil to champion, the biggest restriction is his bolated body. As the picture posted on the Internet, people guess that the fat Ronaldo will end his career in football field. His body reveal that he wasn’t young, and his age is also the limitation for football players.

Nevertheless the biggest pity for football fans will no longer shown David with his Adidas Soccer Shoes in the football field, the nickname of extraterrestrial will record in the history. Even that young players need more experience, we can not give up experienced football players. Maybe the older can drive youngers with calm, change and rapid response. Because in World Cup match, each team would like to be champion, maybe workmanship cooperate can make a great succeed.

This happen event is after the medical staff at AC Milan reportedly told Beckham that he would be able to play top rate football until he was 38, just a few years shy of Italian ace Paolo Maldini, who played until he was 41-years old. Becks has a habit of bouncing back and it would certainly be foolish to draw a line under the sand and say for sure that he will never breach into the England squad again in the future. Also with the prophecy of AC Milan, Adidas produced new Predator X – a new pair of David Beckham Predator Soccer Shoes would have graced the South Africa 2010 World Cup, but an injury ruled him out of the tournament. What Capello said maybe caused a huge loss in Beckham – the remarks will lead Adidas and Nike search for new famous players abandon of the older.

Of course, for Messi and C Lo, they are just more than 20-year-old but have best skills in the world. What Nike choose C Lo for new nike Mercurial Vapor is the fact to tell us that the older player is not have the same value of young players. Also in fact, age matters in football. It is harder for players in their thirties to compete physically with the teenage whippersnappers who are fresh out of the youth academy. Top flight football is not just about being in peak physical condition however and often an experienced player is just as valuable as a pacey youngster. The experience gained over a 20-year career brings with it a calming and re-assuring influence for the younger players in any team. Managers often require older players to strike a healthy balance both on the pitch and in the dressing room.

The reason certain players are able to play into their late thirties is not because of their physical attributes, though of course these are still important – it is down to their mentality. Certain players remain hungry, driven and motivated to the bitter end and it is that which separates the great players from the rest. With the lose opportunity to show his value in World Cup 2010, maybe the word “probably” is the sign to show that Beckham’s glory moment in 2012.

David Beckham where to go – Return back to England Team’s dream has burst

Sunday, August 15th, 2010

It is said that David Beckham will not return to England Team because his ages. It is confirmed by Fabio Capello, who is England manager, he told ITV ahead of the friendly with Hungary at Wembley ” I say thank you very much for helping me at the World Cup but probably he is a little bit old.” For many England football fan, with regret in World Cup 2010, they hope Beckham will return again and create new myth in 2014. However, with this situation, the dream has burst.

We can not ignore the biggest contribution David has build. Leading England Team more than two times in World Cup, make great contribution in critical moment. Even he is old now, his myth still remain in England football teams. However, ending good luck in 2006 World Cup, Becks alway passed luck. Expecially in 2010, he is no longer the world’s best paid footballer. Everything is coming up Lionel Messi these days, so it only makes sense that he should be the highest paid footballer on the planet. little Leo has surpassed Davey Becks and his modeling millions, dethroning the bearded money tree’s two-year hold on the top spot, and also becoming the fourth highest paid athlete in the world, behind only Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and LeBron James. Acroading to the france football rich list David Beckham(LA Galaxy/Milan) is £27.3m, less than Lionel Messi (Barcelona) £29.6m. What a pity for David? Both of them are Adidas Soccer Shoes spokesprisons, but Messi is advance.

In the glorious moment, David’s honor has remained in Adidas football shoes. Becks, wearing adidas football shoes – despite playing at Real for four seasons had no major trophies to show for his talent and determination. For David Beckham need a new football shoe, Adidas has produced David Beckham’s own thumbprint, which are called “Predator Pulse Thumbprint” – a new version of the Predator Pulse shoes launched earlier by Adidas. Adidas shoes always exemplify the cool design, and the Predator Pulse Thumbprint soccer cleats are no exception. For this series has been in more than four years, this series is still the most popular shoes in 2010 World Cup.

It is hard to say that Nike has given up David just because Adidas and David become companion. After Messi has end up his companion with Nike, Nike has changed his voice to C Lo, which just one status below Becks. For C Lo, it is very worth that Nike produce Mercurial Vapor series for him, just like David Beckham. For David in football field, ages is indeed a problem for a football player, but his skill is above all famous players. But with England going through tortured times, Beckham’s personality still carries enough weight and makes him a valuable asset, especially in a locker room utterly devoid of character.

For football fans, it is easy to buy Soccer Shoes which Becks worn to support him. But as biggest wishes, we suggest Becks will come back to England Team again and create new myth, what a pity for England lose such good player?

Surviving the National Lottery: Football Pools Strike Back

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

The concept of the football pools dates back to Liverpool, 1923 when the late Sir John Moores printed off and distributed football coupons by hand after football matches. Fixed-odds betting on football matches had actually been in existence since the 1880s when newspapers in England began to present fixed prices on football matches. However, the concept of a football pool was radically different to that presented by the newspaper and has stayed relatively unchanged since.

Essentially, whereas the newspaper carried odds on teams to win or a match to end in a draw, the football pools allowed players to predict the results of multiple matches, with their entry ’stake’ being pooled together. Winners would then be given a share of the ‘pool’ depending on the amount of money in the pool and the number of winners.

The basic premise of the coupon was to amass 24 points from the list of games played on a Saturday. In order to do this, players selected matches that they thought would end in a ‘draw’ and mark their coupon with an ‘X’. The number of selections a player could make depended on the ‘perm’ (permutation) they wanted to play, as well as the cost of the bet. For example, an 8-from-10 perm allowed players to select 10 matches in the hope 8 of them would result in a draw. Players would hand their completed coupons and stakes to a collector or agent, who would send them on to the operator’s office for checking.

Once all the matches had been played, the pools operator would check each coupon and allocate a score to each selection, depending on result of the match. Commonly, draws were awarded 3 points, with away-team wins being awarded a point-and-a-half and home-team wins being awarded 1 point. Coupon scores would be calculated on the highest scoring combination, depending on the perm played and a dividend announced based on the total amount of the pool and the number of winning players – the more players who scored 24 points, the lower the winning payout was likely to be. Meanwhile, pools players would huddle around the TV or radio – coupon in hand – and await the football results being announced.

Football pools co-existed with high-street bookmakers, who provided much more specific betting opportunities on football matches and horse-racing. While the growth of the football pools had no adverse effect on bookmaker turnover, the easier access to gambling provided by bookmakers did not affect the football pools business either. In fact, many gamblers combined the two elements, contributing to the success and growth of both industries.

However, with the introduction of the National Lottery in 1994, the numbers of people who played football pools began to decline and threatened the pools operators’ long-term future. In fact, immediately prior to the launch of the National Lottery, there was an estimated 10 million football pools players but the introduction of the National Lottery has seen the loss of around 90 percent of football pools customers – lured away by the potential huge lottery jackpot. This is despite football pools still holding a potential payout in excess of £1 million!

In order to survive, football pools operators were forced to consolidate and regroup, which saw some of the major operators amalgamate into a single, larger entity. Furthermore, with the introduction of the internet and online gambling, football pools operators also cast their nets wider in an attempt to entice a greater range of customer.

Nowadays, the websites of football pools operators are about more than predicting the results of football matches. These sites now offer players the chance to play a range of worldwide lotteries as well the opportunity to play online bingo with other players around the country, or even test their knowledge across a range of quizzes as well as the possibility of an instant win ’scratchcard’. This is all in addition to the game that made the football pools operators a household name to begin with, and was the source of much excitement on Saturday afternoons gone by!
