Walker’s Word – Premier League Betting Preview 22/23 April 2006

A glut of home wins dominates this weekend’s predictions and Sunderland could add another twist to the relegation battle at large odds. Love them or loathe them, Chelsea will be in the FA Cup final along with Middlesbrough writes David Walker.

Saturday 22 April

Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur

The race for fourth place hots up in this lunchtime offering as Arsenal look to make up the four point gap that separates them from their north London rivals. The statistics point to a home win. The Gunners have won the last six home Premiership fixtures against Spurs and seven out of 13 overall. Tottenham Hotspur have not had any joy at Highbury since the Premiership began in 1992/93 when they won 3-1. Forgotten striker John Hendry scored twice on one of his few appearances in a Spurs shirt following a £5,000 switch from Dundee.

Walker’s Word: Arsenal to close the gap @ 4/5.

Bolton Wanderers vs Charlton Athletic

Bolton ended a run of five consecutive league defeats with a goalless draw against West Brom on Monday and this match could be a similar yawnfest. Two of the four last meetings between these sides have produced goalless draws while Charlton seem to love a 0-0 result as it has featured in five of their last 10 Premiership matches.

Walker’s Word: Another bore draw @ 23/10 and and 0-0 @ 17/2.

Everton vs Birmingham City

Birmingham City are running out of games if they are to survive in the Premiership and are unlikely to get any favours this Saturday. Steve Bruce’s side have not won at Everton since winning promotion to the top flight but have drawn 1-1 twice in the last three meetings. Their chances of victory are slim and they haven’t won at Goodison Park since 1957 and have lost 11 times on the road this season.

Walker’s Word: Home win @ 11/10.

Newcastle United vs West Bromwich Albion

Under Glenn Roeder, Newcastle are one of the form teams in the Premiership. They have won their last four matches in a row and this is a great opportunity to make it five. The Magpies have won both Premiership meetings at St James Park while the Baggies have not won there since 1977. Bryan Robson’s side have won away from home once all season and are unlikely to improve that record this weekend.

Walker’s Word: Five on the spin for Newcastle @ 4/5.

Portsmouth vs Sunderland

On first glance this looks like a guaranteed home win. Portsmouth had won six on the bounce until they crashed 2-1 at Charlton on Bank Holiday Monday while Sunderland have nothing to play for after being relegated. Right? Wrong. Portsmouth may have hammered Sunderland 4-1 at the Stadium of Light back in October but have not beaten them at Fratton Park in the league since 1992. Since then, Sunderland have won three out of five visits, including two 4-1 wins. Add to that the fact Sunderland have nothing to lose while Portsmouth could succumb to nerves and you have a very tasty away victory proposition and at large odds to boot. There could be another twist to the relegation battle yet.

Walker’s Word: Sunderland to cause a shock @ 8/1.

FA Cup

Chelsea vs Liverpool

Chelsea have an impeccable home record against Liverpool which puts them in pole position for a place in the FA Cup final. The Blues have won 10 out of 14 Premiership meetings at Stamford Bridge, losing just once, 1-0, in 2004. Chelsea have been beaten just once inside 90 minutes at home this season, against Barcelona in the Champions League and have won 17 out of 18 Premiership matches in front of their own fans. This is the first time the pair have met in the FA Cup since 1997, when Chelsea fought back from 2-0 down to win 4-2.

Walker’s Word: Chelsea to march on @ 6/5.

Sunday 23 April

Middlesbrough vs West Ham United

The bookmakers have priced up West Ham as favourites given their positional superiority in the Premiership, but seem to have ignored the fact that the Hammers have not won at Middlesbrough in the Premiership. Steve McClaren’s side have won seven out of eight meetings with West Ham’s last victory at Middlesbrough coming in 1990 when both sides were in the old second division.

Walker’s Word: Boro’s home record to prevail @ 6/4.

5 Cold-Facts That Could Change Freestyle Soccer in 10 Years Time

On a cold day while walking along the streets, I stumbled a couple of kids doing silky tricks while juggling with the ball. To my amazed, they can do tricks in different combinations or what they called as combo and link among themselves. The soccer tricks intrigued me that I began practicing a few of them, well at least one of them. So then I walked along the park to watch guys playing a nice friendly game on a cold hard rainy afternoon. Some of them particularly in the midfield outmaneuver the defenders with silky skills that left the defenders puzzled. Cool soccer tricks and skills. On my way back, I watched some videos on Youtube, usually I received a link from my friend via email and immediately I watched the video link and thought, » The guy’s insane to pull off those tricks!». I researched on these guys and found out that they’re definitely freestylers.

Cool and silky tricks in different combinations during juggling or dribbling are what freestyle soccer is all about. A new trend and relatively new to the world of soccer. It’s addictive and mouth-watering to watch that most people perceived freestyle as a hobby rather than a professional activity. Freestylers typically practice their soccer tricks and work on their combinations to showcase their skills to their friends and the world itself. Silky tricks and skills are recorded and edited to the video including slow motion and credits in order to upload to the streaming sites like Youtube. Freestylers even go one step ahead by performing in competitions and performances like advertisements and documentaries.

A couple of well-knowned freestylers like Billy Wingrove, Abbas Farid, Soufiane Touzani and Palle perform in competition and some of them even releases their very own DVD to teach the newbies in freestyle soccer. Other forms of soccer like beach soccer and five-a-side futsal have flourished in the last 10 years. So, can freestyler soccer follow the same footsteps to grow as a sport? I believe that freestyle soccer has the hidden potential that’s yet to be harnessed. Unless these potential actions are taken, freestyle soccer is prone to dullness. 5 factors that could impact on the world of freestyle soccer:

1. Making it a «Big» hit

Performing irresistible silky and cool soccer tricks in front of the audience on a live performance raise freestylers’ reputation and recognition worldwide. Profit-making companies play a huge role in promoting these outstanding individuals to a world stage like for instance, Nike in promoting top dog superstars such as Billy Wingrove and Abbas Farid. These freestylers often featured in Nike commercials along with soccer superstars like Ronaldinho, Edgar Davids, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Television programmes play a crucial role in promoting freestylers by broadcasting informative documentaries about their lifestyle for example, the BBC Match of the Day program featured a special section about Billy Wingrove and his lifestyle as a freestyler.

2. Engage freestyler with the club via a contract

A boring plain piece of paper that includes all the nitty gritty information on engagement between a freestyler and the club in order to validate their relationship for an agreed number of years. Freestyler’s role are explained in the contract including their wages, privileges with the club like access to the club’s stadium and training ground and travel with the club.

Billy Wingrove, a British freestyler, is contracted to his childhood club, Tottenham Hotspur which gives him the privileges to watch Tottenham’s matches at White Hart Lane, access to their training ground and meeting top players like Aaron Lennon.

3. Train and Travel with the Club

Under a contract, freestylers have the access to the club’s training ground to participate in five-a-side matches with the first team or even teach them some new soccer tricks to the players as Billy Wingrove did with Tottenham Hotspurs.

By training, freestylers have the privilege to travel with the club for away matches or continental championship like the Champions League. This allows them maximum exposure on different lifestyle and cultures on soccer and other things.

4. Coaching the Players

Freestylers have the option to coach whether on a part time basis or on a full time basis.

On a part time basis, a freestyler teaches soccer tricks to the players of the club as Billy Wingrove did with a former Tottenham player, Robbie Keane.

The fun begins in a full time basis. A freestyler coaches the players about freestyler soccer that’s integrated to the club’s training regime. He could influence on coaching decisions on their training regime like improving the team’s ball control and also travel with the club on away matches as well as watching home matches to monitor the team’s progress.

5. Half time Shows and Team Mascot

It’s a rarity in the world of soccer but more common in American sports like the NBA and NFL. But, half time shows evolved in the world of soccer quite recently thus an opportunity for freestylers to shine on the soccer pitch.

Maradona first did half time shows during his days at Boca Juniors. Similarly, Billy Wingrove did the same for the Premiership pre-match entertainment and for international friendlies involving England and Wales.

Freestylers also act as a mascot for the team to welcome new signings or as a pre-match entertainment. Recently, Abbas Farid and his friend did a pre-match entertainment about freestyle with Ronaldinho. The fact that Ronaldinho stares the whole time and giving ovation to those freestylers was a hilarious moment. So, I could conclude that freestylers are related but completely different to soccer.


There’s no doubt that a breathtaking sport embeds into freestyle soccer and the governing body, FIFA should harness to its full potential. An addictive hobby that can earn freestylers a lot of money for their uniqueness in producing exceptional combinations and awesome tricks that should be rewarded and why not. I believe that freestyle can rise to be as good as soccer if these factors or others are put into practice.

English Premier League Early Season 2010/11 Title Contenders

The new Barclays Premier League season is almost one-third to completion and so far, it has been one of many surprises and with enough plot twists to suggest fans can look forward to a great climax come next May. While the usual suspects like Manchester United and Chelsea have shown that they will challenge once more for the title, there have also been teams like Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur who have shown signs that they may well factor in the final weeks.

Chelsea won the title last season with such style and aplomb that the Blues effectively shed off their previous tags of being boring and defensive. Under the guidance of Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti, the players found joy in operating a fine balance in attacking football and defensive resilience. The fact that they came close to netting double figures in goals against a few teams has again been replicated this season showed that their offensive might is no one season wonder.

Ancelotti has also constructed a squad with strong foundations in team unity despite having many big name stars and egos. Players like Didier Drogba, John Terry and Nicolas Anelka have all expressed their happiness at the club and constantly do their talking on the pitch now. Ancelotti has also managed to introduce the kind of entertaining football that club owner Roman Abramovich craves for and these factors could all come together nicely again to allow the Blues to retain the title.

Manchester United will be determined to have a say in the destiny of the title, having finished a close second behind Chelsea last season. The Red Devils were gunning for a fourth consecutive Premier League championship – a feat that had previously never been achieved by any club – but an injury to top striker Wayne Rooney saw them slip up in the final few weeks. However, with the club having retained the services of their prized asset for another five years, the Old Trafford club may now be galvanised to launch a stronger title bid this season. While results in their first nine games have been less than encouraging, the quality of the squad that manager Sir Alex Ferguson has at his disposal will certainly overcome any early season jitters.

Arsenal have regularly featured in previous title races and currently second in the standings behind Chelsea, the Gunners are adamant that they have finally found the missing ingredient to claim their first title in years. Manager Arsene Wenger has bought shrewdly during the summer transfer window. In Moroccan striker Marouane Chamakh, he has a quicksilver striker who has bedded in seamlessly into English football with five goals already to his name this season. Defenders Laurent Koscielny and Sebastian Squillaci will also provide depth in a defence that has so often let down the team in the past. Wenger also pulled off a masterstroke in convincing captain Cesc Fabregas to remain with the club in the face of advances from Spanish club Barcelona.

Expectations are high at Manchester City after another summer of heavy spending. The Eastlands club has spent over two hundred million pounds to beef up their squad with star signings. While City’s targets and priorities have not been made public, it is widely accepted that nothing less than a fourth place finish and perhaps a trophy from one of the cup competitions would suffice. Manager Roberto Mancini is constantly under pressure due to the investments but the Italian has a proven track record from his time in Serie A. A win over Chelsea in the early stages of the season has already shown City’s potential and they cannot be ruled out from being a strong contender.

Tottenham Hotspur, or Spurs as they are popularly known, are certainly one of the dark horses for the title. While their realistic chances of winning it may be weaker compared to the aforementioned sides, the north London side is packed with sublime talent. In Harry Redknapp, they also have a manager with a shrewd ability to get the best out of lesser players and an ambition that matches the size of his ego. The only hindrance they may face would be the lack of experience the players have in dealing with the duo commitment of the Premier League and Champions League competitions.

While Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal are easily the most favoured to lift the title, the emergence of both Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur will push the established trio right down to the wire. Teams like Liverpool should never be discounted either, due to tradition and desire. One thing is for certain though – the Premier League title race will never be entirely predictable nor boring.

Sports Clubs and Sponsorships

Sports clubs and teams themselves are sponsored by big corporates and conglomerates manufacturing and dealing in several businesses like electronics, automobiles, beverages, financial services, airlines, sports goods, clothing, packaging, retail, building construction, real estate and many others.

Logos – uses and benefits

It’s not uncommon to see sports teams around the world sporting company logos on their clothing, shoes, travel kits and other paraphernalia providing win-win situations for all in terms of business branding and revenue earnings.

However, the consumer electronics industry remains the hot favorite among corporate sponsors because of the endless stream of innovations in products and the ever growing demand for the latest gadgets and electronics in a widely aware consumer industry.

Companies like Sony Corp, Panasonic, Samsung, Philips and LG put their sponsorships to good use for various benefits. Panasonic uses its Ideas for Life positioning to reinforce brand image, engage retailers and consumers and increase sales. Sony used its seven-year FIFA deal for exclusive rights in the high definition TVs, personal computers, audio equipment and components and gaming equipment creating a very visible ‘digital life’ category.

In the US, Philips Electronics through its streamlined sponsorship programs focuses on soccer/football as a marketing platform. In a five-year deal, the company is able to achieve exclusivity in consumer electrical and electronic equipment and kitchen appliances. Likewise, Sony uses title sponsorship of NHRA’s Sport Compact Racing Series to promote brand awareness of its Xplod mobile audio while as co-sponsor to the Penske Racing NASCAR Nextel Cup; it promotes its HD TV products. Samsung Electronics, through its Hope for Education program donates consumer electronic products and software worth millions of dollars to schools; it also supports non-profit organizations that have links with music and sports celebrities to promote worthy causes.

Display and demos for new products is the current focus of many sponsorships; simultaneously building industry-trade relations through employee sales incentive contests, in-store promotions and client entertainment.

Spurs Won the FA Cup Three Times in the 1960s

The FA Cup is the oldest association football competition in the world. In 1872, Wanderers Football Club won the first title in the history of FA Cup football. The record for the most wins is held by Manchester United with 11 triumphs, followed by Arsenal with 10 and Tottenham Hotspur with 8. The trophy is held by Wigan Athletic, who defeated Manchester City 1-0 in the 2013 final.

FA Cup Football in the 1960s

The crowd continued to fill Wembley Stadium when FA Cup Finals were played in the 60’s. It was a six-digit number of spectators at almost every final. Only one club won the title more than once during the 1960s. Spurs won the title three times in the decade. Leicester City played three finals but lost all. The big clubs from Merseyside and Manchester won the cup one time each.

Second Division team Preston North End came close to upsetting their First Division opponents in 1964 Final. West Ham trailed with both 0-1 and 1-2 but came back and avoided the upset. Ronnie Boyce scored 3-2 to the Hammers on injury time giving West Ham the club’s first FA Cup title.

Club of the decade: Tottenham Hotspur Football Club was founded in 1882. Spurs won the title three times in the 1960s (1961, 1962 and 1967). Thanks to the 2-0 win over Leicester City in the 1961 final, Spurs became the first club to win the double (League + FA Cup) in the twentieth century.

Player of the decade: Spurs striker Bobby Smith scored important goals in both the 1961 and 1962 Final. He scored 1-0 in the 1961 final against Leicester City and he scored important 2-1 in the 1962 final against Burnley. Bobby Smith scored 208 goals with the Spurs jersey in 317 games. Only Jimmy Greaves has scored more goals for Tottenham. Smith gained 15 caps for England and scored 13 goals.

Portsmouth – Champions of England (Again!) – 1949-50

In a follow up to yesterday’s account of Portsmouth’s first Championship triumph, here is the story of the retaining of the title the following season. Once again, much is taken from Colin Farmery’s account of those glory years.

There were few changes to the Championship winning team, Portsmouth’s books actually revealing a credit balance on transfers of £16,400! The Champions started the season well enough with a 3-1 win at Newcastle United, but were up and down after that. There was a defeat at home to Stanley Matthews’ Blackpool, interspersed with a 5-1 win at Middlesbrough and a 7-0 thrashing of Everton at Fratton Park. On 1st October league leaders Wolves visited Fratton Park, and for the first and only time. more than 50,000 spectators crammed into the ground for a league game. A 1-1 draw left Pompey in seventh, but only three points behind Wolves. The title race was to remain tight for the rest of the season.

Large scale merchandising was still a thing of the future in those days and in the 15th October Football Mail, Pompey Championship ties were advertised at Landports Drapery (which later became Allders). Portsmouth didn’t have a club shop until the late 1960s and the only items visible in club colours amongst the crowd tended to be scarves and rosettes. But one supporter of the time, Cyril Lucas, recalls that the absence of large scale commercialism aded to the sense of occasion on match day. ‘When I stood on the north terrace opposite the tunnel, I couldn’t wait until the players came up the tunnel. I was just so full of pride when I saw those royal blue shirts and that star and crescent badge. That shirt was only worn by the eleven players – no-one else wore it, unlike the replica shirts you see these days – and you wouldn’t see it again until the next match. It was Pompey’s pride and glory and a huge cheer went up when the players ran out.’

Even the players had to supplement their wages! Eleven of them commissioned photographers to take individual and team photos, which were then sold privately to supporters and through newspapers.

Pompey continued to be up and down, and a feature of the season was that the team was far more unsettled than in the previous campaign. More players were used, and more than one found themselves making their solitary Pompey appearance as they covered for injuries.

Portsmouth were drawn against Third Division (South) Norwich City in the FA Cup third round and underperformed in the Fratton Park tie, drawing 1-1. In another example of how similar football fans are both then and now, consider this letter to the Football mail in the aftermath of the game. ‘I think this was a disgusting show for a first division team. Almost 20 years at the Park and I have never seen anything like it…If Pompey want to make a show in the Cup or league they have to go out and buy a couple of forwards in my opinion. I reckon Pompey are the meanest club of all divisions for paying out, and may I finish up, If Pompey do not win on Thursday (the replay), my old woman will be having more of my company on Saturday afternoons in the future.’ As I said, nothing changes!

Going into March, four points separated the top seven with Pompey in fourth behind Manchester United, Liverpool, and Sunderland. Portsmouth continued to stutter, losing 2-1 at Derby with Jimmy Scoular sent off. This was a huge incident in the days when it was extremely difficult to even receive a booking, and the issue hung over Pompey for weeks before the relevant FA committee was due to meet to discuss punishment. But, it seemed to be the title that nobody wanted to win as other teams also dropped points.

Going into the crucial game against leaders Manchester United at Old Trafford on 15th April, four points separated the top six, with Pompey lying third, a point behind the leaders. Reid and Froggatt scored in the last six minutes for a priceless 2-0 win. Second placed Sunderland lost at home to Manchester City. Pompey were now in pole position with three games to go, and could become the first club to retain the Championship since Arsenal’s hat-trick of titles was completed in 1935.

Pompey won their next game against Liverpool, and results that day showed that one win from two was now required to retain the Championship. The next game was at Highbury, never a happy hunting ground. Pompey had never won there at the time, and slumped to a 2-0 defeat. But the maths still held and a win in the final match at home to Aston Villa would be enough, barring an improbable 20 goal haul by Wolves in their last match.

This was the era of goal average (goals scored divided by goals conceded), and Pompey’s was vastly superior. From the moment they scored after 20 seconds of the game at Fratton Park, the result was never in doubt and they ran out 5-1 winners. The Championship was retained. The next team to achieve the feat was Manchester United’s Busby Babes in 1957. Portsmouth had proved themselves the best team in the country.

Despite this, the press failed to recognise the achievement. Alex James of the Daily Express, a distinguished former Arsenal striker, reserved his choice of team of the year for Second Division Champions Tottenham Hotspur. ‘Don’t think I’m knocking Pompey,’ he said, ‘it takes a wonderful side to win the league championship two years running.’ He evidently considered it more wonderful to win the Second Division once than to win the First twice!

That reminds me, I must catch up on the latest installment of ‘Pompeygate’.

Choosing a Vintage Arsenal Football Shirt – A Look at 3 Arsenal Retro Shirts From the Past

There have been many reasons for Arsenal fans to celebrate over the years and there is usually a vintage Arsenal football shirt to commemorate these achievements. A cabinet full of trophies have been won during the reigns of George Graham and Arsene Wenger, but let us not forget the great Arsenal teams from the past, who also won their fair share of trophies as well, and did it wearing awesome looking Arsenal retro shirts.

When you think of a vintage Arsenal football shirt you will naturally imagine the red shirt with white sleeves, made famous by the likes of Pat Rice, Charlie George and the incredible Liam Brady. However, it might be a surprise to find out that many of the Arsenal retro shirts from the past were not variations of this red and white strip at all.

Below we take a look at three Arsenal retro shirts from the club’s glorious past.

Arsenal 1971 Double Winners shirt

Having won the League title by beating their North London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal faced Liverpool in the 1971 FA Cup Final knowing that a victory would earn them the coveted «Double», a feat that had been achieved for the first time in 1961, by Spurs. The game was won by the Gunners, 2-1 after extra time, with Charlie George scoring the winner.

In the away colours of yellow and blue, this really is a great looking Arsenal football shirt, featuring the club’s cannon logo, which has a little picture of the FA Cup above it. These Arsenal retro shirts look cool with a pair of jeans and is a must buy for any Gunners fan.

Arsenal 1970’s long sleeve shirt

These Arsenal retro shirts are far more in the style you would expect from a vintage Arsenal football shirt. It was the red body with long white sleeves that was the home kit for most of the decade, with the only real change being the v-neck getting replaced by a round neck design.

Amongst the many legends who wore this shirt, perhaps the best loved was Liam Brady, the Republic of Ireland star who made 235 appearances for the club, between 1973 and 1980, scoring 43 goals.

Arsenal 1989 Championship shirt

These Arsenal retro shirts were of course made famous by that infamous game against Liverpool, in 1989, without doubt the most exciting moment ever in Arsenal’s history. Arsenal needed to win the game by 2 clear goals, in order to clinch the title from Liverpool and achieved «Mission Impossible» at Anfield when Michael Thomas, wearing number 4, scored in the 89th minute. Again this is a yellow away shirt, but this one has navy blue sleeves and is sponsored by JVC.

Teddy Sheringham – Manchester United Legend

Teddy Sheringham is thought by many to be one of Manchester United’s best signings after arriving at the club in 1997. United legend Eric Cantona had just left the Reds after his shock decision to retire from football, and at 31 years of age, Sheringham certainly had a tough act to follow.

Unfortunately Sheringham didn’t make the best of starts for Manchester United, following his £3.5 million transfer from Tottenham Hotspur, it was Spurs that he faced as he made his debut for the Reds. Constantly jeered throughout the game by the White Hart Lane crowd, Sheringham took a penalty, a role he had assumed from Cantona, but he missed the spot kick, much to the delight of the home fans, although United went onto to win the game with two late goals.

During his first year at the club, the 1997-98 season finished without a trophy for United, although Sheringham scored 14 goals during the season.

At the beginning of the 1998-99 season there was much speculation that Sheringham would leave the club after United signed Dwight Yorke from Aston Villa. Although he remained at the club, his first team opportunities were limited, although he did make enough appearances to secure a league title winners medal as the Reds secured the Premier League title, Sheringham scored 5 goals despite his limited appearances.

After a mediocre season, no-one could have anticipated the impact Sheringham would make as United went onto to clinch an amazing treble. After beating Arsenal to the League title by a single point, United faced Newcastle in the FA Cup Final and although initially starting on the substitutes bench, Sheringham was called to replace the injured Roy Keane after just eight minutes. Within 90 seconds of coming onto the pitch he scored United’s first goal and they eventually won the game 2-0 to secure their second trophy of the season.

Sheringham again started on the bench for the Champions League Final against Bayern Munich, after trailing for much of the game 1-0, he scored a crucial equaliser one minute into injury time at the end of the game, United went onto to win 2-1 in one of the most memorable nights in their history. As the Reds secured an amazing treble, Sheringham had secured his first winners medals of his career.
