Soccer Shoes and Things to Keep in Mind Before Buying Them

Did you ever wonder why people wear soccer shoes during games like soccer, football, and basketball? It is so because the soccer shoes have spikes in them. Games like soccer need constant running on the ground without a break. Regular footwear is of no aid in these games. They won’t provide you much support and you also may end up getting hurt. The spikes fixed at the bottom of these soccer shoes dig into the muddy and grassy ground and helps in running and taking sudden turns. They provide traction. They are of immense support while you are running in the ground. Soccer shoes are made of leather and come in low cuts with a cushion that can be removed if you do not like it.

Soccer shoes provide all the balance you need on a rough ground during your instant turns, cuts, sprints, and skids. The gap prevents it from trapping dirt and grass between them and make running easier. The spikes are distributed evenly in the toe and foot area to gives you proper grip even on sloppy surfaces.

It is known by various names. The spikes for the soccer shoes is of three kinds rubber, metal, and plastic. If they come out of the shoes then don’t worry, they can be reattached. Soccer shoes are lightweight so that you do not feel a load on your legs pulling you down while running. Plus they are compatible with all kinds of surface. Edge around the toes is hardly stitched that assist in proper kicking. Due to heavy stitching, the layer also won’t come out. Keep these things in mind before buying them.

Find out your perfect size – If you are about to buy a new pair of soccer shoes then it is better to do some digging on the internet before. If you are buying them for the first time then it is important to know the right size. Do the measurements before and then choose the one that fits you perfectly.

Another important factor to keep in mind while choosing them is your position and method of playing. They are made of different materials for different players depending on the position they take in the field. Goalkeepers need soccer shoes that provide them more traction and help in sudden jumping. Wingers keep on changing their direction so they need ones that do not trip them during turns. Defensive players need more protection to their feet which are in danger of getting hit most. Midfielders should select the ones that provide comfort while they run non-stop.

It is necessary that your soccer shoes fit you properly or if it is tight or loose then it can cause hindrance while you play. The upper should be tight to give a proper fit but not too tight to squeeze your toes.

Soccer Fixture: Chelsea Versus Arsenal

Chelsea and Arsenal met in the First Division of the Football League at Stamford Bridge for the first time on the 9th November, 1907 – 30 years after the stadium had first been opened for use by the London Athletic Club. Chelsea won 2.1 with both goals scored by George Hilsdon. Arsenal’s reply came from Charlie Satterthwaite.

George Hilsdon was the first player to score 100 goals for Chelsea and a weather vane modelled on him can still be seen at Stamford Bridge. Legend has it that Chelsea will suffer ‘great misfortune’ if it is ever removed, as it was during ground works in the late 1970’s when Chelsea were in financial and football decline. Hilsdon was the victim of a gas attack on the Western Front in WWI and never played professional football again, dying in 1941. His grave is unmarked.

This first match was watched by a then record crowd for England’s top division: 65,000. Arsenal were still known as and based at Woolwich Arsenal at the time but they had a huge away following for this match due to it also being the 66th birthday of King Edward VII. The munitions factory – where many of the workers who followed the club were based – was closed for the day, hence they were free to travel to West London.

In fact, Arsenal could have been more local rivals of Chelsea than Tottenham Hotspur. A local businessman – Henry Norris – had a significant role in the development of both clubs. Amassing a fortune from property Norris became a Director and then Chairman of Fulham. Another Edwardian businessman called Henry – Henry Augustus Mears – had acquired Stamford Bridge with a view to it becoming one of the finest venues for association football in the capital if not the whole country. He offered Norris the chance to move Fulham FC to the ground but Norris refused to pay the annual rent of some £1500 and so Mears created his own team – Chelsea FC – in 1905. Had Norris not been so careful with his money, there might not have been a Chelsea football club at all.

Five years later Norris, still Chairman of Fulham became a majority shareholder of Woolwich Arsenal which had gone into voluntary liquidation. Becoming Chairman of that London club too, Norris proposed merging them with Fulham to form a super-club. The move was blocked by the Football League and so Chelsea and Fulham remained local rivals rather than Chelsea and Arsenal.

This match between the two teams in 1907 was the first ever to be played by two London clubs in the First Division and so the first major ‘London derby.’ All subsequent league meetings between the two sides to date have been in the top tier of English football (the old First Division and now the Premier League).

Woolwich Arsenal got their revenge the following season with a 2.1 win on 28th November, 1908 – Chelsea’s goal coming from George Hilsdon again. The Gunners won on Chelsea turf in the season after that as well, before the first draw – 1.1 – in this league fixture on 15th February, 1913. This was the last time the two sides met before Woolwich Arsenal moved to Highbury and changed their name to Arsenal.

Indeed, after that win in their first meeting, Chelsea did not win the fixture again until 13th December, 1919 when they won 3.1 with goals from Robert McNeil, John Cock and Henry Ford in front of a huge post-war crowd of 60,000.

The fixture on 12th October, 1935 was played in front of another enormous crowd: 82,905, which was the second highest recorded attendance for an English league match. It finished in a 1.1 draw. Joseph Bambrick scored for Chelsea and Jack Crayston for Arsenal.

Arsenal’s record league win at Stamford Bridge came in front of 74,667 football fans on 29th November, 1930 – a 5.1 victory, with David Jack scoring a hat-trick as Arsenal moved closer to their first League Championship win and domination of English football in the 1930s. They scored five times again on 24th November, 1934 – in a 5.2 victory this time – with legendary Arsenal centre-forward Ted Drake scoring four of Arsenal’s goals. Drake would go on to manage Chelsea in 1952 and was largely responsible for changing their nickname from The Pensioners to The Blues.

The Gunners also scored five goals in a 5.3 win on 29th October, 2011 with Robin Van Persie scoring a hat-trick for the victors.

Chelsea’s largest win in the fixture came in a 6.0 win in the Premier League on 22nd March, 2014 which was also Arsenal manager, Arsène Wenger’s 1000th game in charge. This is the highest number of goals Chelsea have scored against Arsenal in a league fixture at Stamford Bridge and also represented the biggest margin of victory by The Blues. Oscar scored two goals that day alongside one each from Samuel Eto’o, Andre Schurrle, Eden Hazard and Mohamed Salah in front of an attendance of 41,614.

The sides are neck and neck in terms of wins in this fixture. In the years when Chelsea have gone on to win the League Title they have never lost at home to their rivals from North London, drawing the matches in the 1954/55 and 2004/05 seasons and winning each of them in 2005/06, 2009/10 and 2014/15.

For Arsenal, in the 13 seasons where they have finished as League Champions, they have only lost at Chelsea on two occasions (Chelsea were in the Second Division in the 1988/89 season so there was no fixture) – on 29th August, 1970 when Paddy Mulligan and John Hollins scored for Chelsea and Eddie Kelly got one back for Arsenal – and on 2nd February, 1991. Kerry Dixon and Graham Stuart scored for Chelsea that day with Alan Smith replying for Arsenal in front of a crowd of 29,094. This was the only league defeat of the season for George Graham’s Arsenal team and their first in 27 First Division matches, stretching back to a 2.0 loss at Luton Town on 21st April, 1990.

England FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa

After some of the most disappointing performances in the last few years, England sure will have a point to prove in South Africa. Here’s a closer look that the country’s profile and their chances at FIFA 2010.

England’s national football team is controlled by the Football Association, Wembley in London being their home ground. England is currently ranked 8th in the latest FIFA rankings ahead of the World Cup

Speaking of the past record, England is one of the only seven nations who have lifted the FIFA World Cup trophy. After defeating West Germany 4-2 in the extra time at the finals, England won its first FIFA World Cup in 1966 at their home soil. However, the performance has been average after that, the best being reaching the semifinals in 1990 where they lost to West Germany.

At the FIFA world Cup 2010, England has been placed in the Group C alongside USA, Algeria and Slovenia. They kick start their tournament at Rutsenburg against USA on June 12th after which they play Algeria and Slovenia on 18th and 23rd June respectively.

Having missed out on a place at the UEFA EURO 2008, England bounced back strongly to book its berth at the FIFA 2010 with as many as 9 wins out of their ten group matches. Their only defeat came against Ukraine but till then, their place was sealed.

Dubbed English football’s ‘golden generation’, this could well be the last chance for many of the most successful players the game has ever seen. With an able coach in Fabio Capello, Wayne Rooney and co. would sure be looking to silence its critics. The team has many star players in its ranks. Leading from the front would be their skipper and Manchester United’s star forward Rooney. With other legendary players like the midfield duo Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard and Peter Crouch, England sure is a team not to be undermined.

The Fall And Fall Of Serie A

For him to start this game with players like Michael Silverstre, who had not played for over 6 months, Rio Ferdinand, who got injured against Middlesboro on Sunday, leave out Paul Scholes, Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo showed the contempt he had for Roma’s chances and they did not let him down.

Frankly Italian football has been an embarrassment for 2 seasons now and it is time they take stock of how far they have fallen from grace. All they do is bicker about refereeing decisions and constantly gripe about the success of Inter Milan saying they are being favoured by referees, that they have stopped getting world class talent into their league.

AC Milan are actually thinking of bringing back Andriy Shevchenko back to their team. It is bad enough that they have the oldest squad in the world but instead of trying to reduce the average age, they keep buying players that are past it.

Managers are sacked and rehired on a constant basis showing that the people that are running the clubs do not have a clue. What is the point in sacking a manager if you are going to bring in someone worse, only to sack him and then rehire the previous manager?

This is not something that happens once in a long while, it happens very often with different clubs.

It says a lot that Juventus that was relegated last season are 3rd in the league with what is at best an average manager and average bunch of players but unlike Roma they have the will to win. They might not have the quality that Roma possesses but in players like Gigi Buffon, Alessandro Del Piero, Pavel Nedved, Mauro Camonaresi and David Trezeguet they have players that would always make a difference to any team in the world.

There is not a chance that with the team Ferguson put out that Juventus would not have scored against United because Fergie took a huge chance and he possibly thought and quite rightly that Luciano Spaletti is nowhere near the level required to win the champions league.

How else would you explain his putting out 1 striker against an injured Ferdinand and Gerard Pique or his playing Cassetti instead of Max Tonnetto? To be fair he did not anything that would have changed my beliefs that his relative success in seriea is due to the lack of good football teams and managers currently as 5-10 years ago he would not have been in charge of a team in mid-table never mind a team challenging for the championship.

AC Milan could quite conceivably come 4th with a side shown up to be also-rans by Arsenal in the San Siro as they are far too old to be challenging for the championship. Teams like Fiorentina and Udinese would be totally embarrassed by foreign teams if they did qualify for champions league next season as they are not good enough to represent Italy.

Inter Milan for all their faults are the only team in Italy that can compete with the other powerhouses in Europe as they have the money and personnel, they just lack the manager. Juventus would have to overhaul what they have and change managers as well to stand a chance as they can only be competitive in a second rate championship that SerieA has sadly become but not in Europe.

Back to the Roma versus Manchester United match, it was cringe worthy to see players like Anderson, Owen Hargreaves, Park Ji-Sung just penetrate through Roma so easily when there is nothing penetrative about them. It just makes you wonder why the manager would persist with a player like David Pizarro and when was the last time that Taddei put in a good performance to warrant a starting place?

It was just too easy for United yesterday and I was shocked to read that some people thought Roma were not an embarrassment just because they were not trounced 7-1 again this season. There were even awarded a non-existent penalty but such is their fragile ego that Daniele De Rossi blasted it well over the bar.

It is just very sad to see a league that was once great degenerate into what it is nowadays with fans just talking about Inter Milan allegedly being favoured with sinister connotations as the standard of football so bad that watching Bundesliga seems more palatable.

I would like for them to get their act together and stop concentrating on conspiracies and start building teams worth watching with character and verve. Unfortunately the mentality is not like that, Roma for instance would actually think it is a step in the right direction that they got beat 2-0 and 1-0 and count the extremely marginal chances that they created.
