New signing Vidal, perfect addition for Barcelona

August 12, 2015

The Spanish player could be used either as a right back or forward and would constantly place in a great job which makes some pundits argue about his best position.

The speculation regarding his move to Barcelona heightened in the mid of last term when the Catalans were not certain if back Dani Alves was staying or not considering he was in the last year of his contract and had offers flying left, right and center.

At the ending, Alves chose to stay for another year and Blaugrana were already deep in discussions with Sevilla over Vidal, what made matters a lot easier was the proven fact the player was seriously angling for a move to the European champions.

"Barcelona is a huge club with all the world's best players in the team, every player would love to be part of this kind of side, to play with stars like Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Andres Iniesta would be a dream come true for me" the player who wouldn't be able to appear for the club until January due a prohibition said at his unveiling.

With the exit of Pedro to Manchester United almost certain right now, Vidal might have earned himself another position in the assaulting line considering Alves would be expecting to retain his starting spot on the team.

Like Jordi Alba who on arrival from Valencia, fitted perfectly with Barcelona's 'tiki taka' style of play, Vidal is, in addition, anticipated to accommodate without much adore particularly given his antecedent at Sevilla and the very fact he plays with bulk of Barcelona players with the Catalonia national team.

In my opinion, the single problem continue how best to keep both Vidal and fellow 'new lad' Arda Turan in the best shape that is possible since they won't be in action until next year and high level football demands top level competitors to maintain sharpness.

Another huge benefit is that, in the correct age of 25, Vidal wouldn't only be a long-term replacement for 32 year old Alves but a servant of the club for many years to come.

With the Spanish national team embracing same playing style as Barca and both teams featuring majorly same players, this player could progress to turned into one the very best of all times for Barcelona.

Soccer Hobby

July 23, 2015

Soccer is one of the most popular sports, if not the most popular sport or hobby in the world. The soccer World Cup, which is the world soccer tournament that goes occurs every four years, gets more viewers than any other sporting event in the world. Soccer is such a big deal in some countries that it has caused political tensions between nations when their teams have played against each other in the World Cup. So why is soccer such a great hobby for everyone? For one thing, it does not require much equipment to play soccer, you just need a soccer ball to kick around and a couple friends, and some sort of goal that you can use to kick the ball into. The rules are rather simple and obvious, you just kick the soccer ball around and try to kick it into the other team's goal to score, and you can't touch the soccer ball with your hands.

Kicking a soccer ball around is something that can be addicting and you can spend hours and hours doing it without getting bored. You can do different tricks with your like dribbling and or seeing how many times you can kick the soccer ball without letting it hit the ground. You can practice tricks like the bicycle where you jump and kick it sideways or kick it in the air while falling onto your back. You can do that one trick where you roll the ball with one foot onto the back of your other leg and then use that other leg to kick it forward, from behind, over your head; that's one of my favorites. It makes people think I am a good soccer player when I do that one, even though I am not.

One nice thing about soccer or a soccer hobby is that it definitely keeps you in shape with all of that running you have to do, and you have to be in pretty good shape to do well at soccer. Playing soccer is not like a light jog where you can just take it easy the whole time. You are at a full, dead sprint over and over. It's fun too, so it doesn't feel like you are just working out, you are playing a game instead. The last soccer team I played on was an indoor soccer team. I thought I was in shape, but then I could only last for a couple minutes before I had to take a breather, each time I went in.

One of my earliest memories of playing soccer was when I was on a little league soccer team as a kid. I was playing defense and all I did was kick the ball as hard as I could to the other end of the field every time it came to me. I also remember afterwards, I ate a piece of chocolate candy with the wrapper still on it. I didn't swallow it, but it made me sick and had to quit dribbling my soccer ball on the way home from the soccer game, while I puked because the feeling in my mouth was so disgusting. I think my body was worked up from the sprinting in the soccer game as well and my stomach was tight. It still makes me sick to think about that experience all of these years later. But I sure had fun as a kid playing on my soccer team and had a lot of good experiences. I also still have a lot of good memories from my soccer days as a kid. It was fun being the center of attention as I kicked the ball around each time it came to me. I wasn't that good though, and I played defense, so I usually just gave the soccer ball a nice boot to the other side of the field each time it came to me.

There are a lot of drills you can do with a soccer balls, just on your own to become a better soccer player. You can just practice dribbling, as mentioned above, where you just kick the soccer ball back and forth between your legs as you run. Once you get good at dribbling the soccer ball, you can show it off when you play games, but dribbling the soccer ball and cutting past people. Or, you can practice kicking and aiming the soccer ball at a certain point on a wall or practice kicking it into the goal or passing with the side of you foot, so you can get your aim better and score more goals when you play. You can dribble the soccer ball with your feet while weaving through cones. You can practice heading the soccer ball and aiming with your head. For some reason soccer player's favorite thing to do is hit the soccer ball with their heads.

Soccer Gear For Every Soccer Player

July 22, 2015

Choosing the right soccer gear can be a difficult chore. It doesn't matter whether you are choosing youth soccer gear, or gear for adults. It doesn't have to be painful. But with so many choices available, you need to ensure that the gear is of good quality, and will last through the soccer wars.

Buying cheap soccer gear will sometimes have you buying that same item more times. That will make it more expensive in the long run. Many times it is best to spend a little more up front and buy longer lasting gear.

With my over 30 years in soccer I have made some good choices, and some bad choices when choosing soccer gear.

I have to laugh when I look in my gear bag and see a pair of turf shoes that I have had for over 20 years. Obviously I haven't played a lot of games on turf! But they were definitely a good choice. And I can actually still wear them!

Start at the Bottom!

    Soccer footwear!

Whatever position you play, it doesn't matter. You could be playing as a goalie, midfielder, defender, or striker. Sneakers are not the way to go! Unless you want to continually slip around and miss the ball because you can't get your foot planted. You will never improve your soccer game that way.

    Indoor or outdoors?

Indoor soccer shoes are flat bottomed and made of a material that is more firm than a standard sneaker.

Outdoor soccer shoes come in models made for hard fields, firm fields, or soft / wet fields. Some have removable cleats so you do not have to buy a new pair of cleats if one or two studs wear down early.

    Soccer Shin Guards!

Not only do they prevent injury, they are now a mandatory piece of soccer equipment. It only makes sense. Most of the action is in that area of your body.

    Soccer Socks!

Soccer socks are used to hold your shin guards in place and are part of a complete soccer uniform. They used to be so plain and boring. Red, blue, green, yellow. You get the picture. But with increased interest in soccer comes increased options for colors. Can you say Fuschia soccer socks?

    Soccer Shorts!

Baggy shorts are not soccer shorts. They may be in-style but that does not mean that they are good for the soccer field. The less restrictive your shorts are, the better it is for your game. They also have to fit your team's uniform and take the beating that sliding, diving, and falling down will give them.

    Soccer Jerseys!

Your soccer jersey will express the personality of your team. And of course it should blend well with your shorts and socks. However some people want to buy replica soccer jerseys to support their favorite soccer club. Those are available for every major soccer team in the world.

    Soccer Goalkeeper Gear!

Outfitting a soccer goalkeeper is the same as any player on the field, with a few differences:

    Goalkeepers wear shorts or long pants with padding on the hips. This padding helps prevent injuries from the numerous times that they dive for a ball during a game.
    Goalkeepers wear special goalkeeper gloves to give them a better grip on the ball.
    A goalie jersey usually has padding on the elbows to reduce the impact on their bodies when they land.

With all that gear, a great choice to carry it all is a soccer backpack.
