Everton 0-1 Newcastle Match Highlights and Goals: 09/18/2010

Hatem Ben Arfa's left-foot strike gave Newcastle their first win at Goodison Park in almost a decade and left Everton rooted in the bottom three and still without a Premier League point this season. Ben Arfa, making his first Newcastle start after signing on loan from Marseille, scored with a magnificent 25-yard strike on the stroke of half-time as Chris Hughton's side bounced back in style from their shock home defeat by Blackpool.

Newcastle also survived the loss of goalkeeper Steve Harper in the first-half after he sustained a suspected collarbone injury in a tangle with Jermaine Beckford.

Raising Up the Foot After a Game

After a game of football, I would give my feet some time to rest. I raise them up on a stool or a soft seat but not really bothering to use any wrinkle lotion especially after a wet football game. I have experienced getting cramps on my toes while removing the soccer socks but am thankful that is not gone beyond that.

Stoke 1-1 West Ham Match Highlights and Goals: 09/18/2010

Western Ham took their first point of the Premier League the season with a hard-fought draw against Stoke. Scott Parker put the visiting side ahead after a free kick clearance failed.

Kenwyne Jones leveled with a header and had a strike hit the post by Robert Green, while Robert Huth and Ricardo Fuller also hit the woodwork. West Ham struck the post through Frederic Piquionne, while Thomas Sorensen blocked Manuel da Costa's shot.

It was a tough and uncompromising contest between two teams who began the day in the bottom three. Photos of the match can be viewed below.

A Teammate Prone to Fractures

I had a football club team member who got injured last season. He was physically fit, and on of the most match fit among my team mates. But his bones were not that strong because he often had fractures even back when he was a child.

I think it would have helped if he had consulted a professional who could have advised him about his bone’s condition. Maybe he could have received advise like taking calcium supplements or eating the right kind of foods to help strengthen his bones. Now, he is still injured and still not able to play football.

It's Your Choice

You have to options. You can either take the short cut or the long route. You can try the hard way or a safe but easy way. I’m talking about dieting.

If you plan to go on a strict diet to lose weight, I suggest you read diet pill reviews before using a diet pill. It is the easy way but many athletes prefer the hard way which is exercising. It’s your choice.

Preparing For a Tournament?

If you are in a competition or are still preparing for a tournament, then you better shape up or expect not to win. You need to do everything in your power to be fit in the pitch so you can play the whole 90 minutes.

If you need an app├ętit control pill then find one to help you maintain your weight, keep you in shape easier or to keep you from growing larger and slower.

Aresenal 6-0 Braga Match Highlights and Goals: 09/15/2010

Arsenal made their bid for a first Champions League triumph to the perfect start in the Emirates with a reduction of the Portuguese side Braga. The Gunners took seven minutes to go ahead, Cesc Fabregas scored from the spot after a foul on Marouane Chamakh.

Andrey Arshavin slammed into sublime Fabregas pass, before Jack Wilshere is well established Chamakh to fire home. Fabregas headed home for 4-0 and Carlos Vela dinked in a fifth before he stroked home, wrap it around other things. It was a display that embodies everything BOSS Arsene Wenger prefers to keep apart as his Gunners team snatched the Champions League debutants.

Arsenal took their usual magnetic passing game in the European launch, but they seemed to raise their level a notch above the norm with some fabulous interchanges that Braga spend most of the evening saw chasing shadows.

Working On Abs

For the past few days, I have been doing exercises to target my abs. It has been a long time since I have played football and I used to have no problems with my physique but lately I have become conscious of my abs.

I am doing the exercises and will only take slimming pills when they do not take effect. I hope I am able to continue the exercises regularly.

Cheap Soccer Gear

Buying a new pair of soccer shoes, a set of replica jerseys and other soccer gears will not conflict with your plans to get a car insurance. It is just a matter of knowing where to get them cheap. If you are looking for original gears, I would suggest you wait for the sale. But, you won’t be able to get the latest. I would not suggest for you to get a non-original if you are planning to get soccer shoes because you will sacrifice the quality and durability of the good brands. As for replica jerseys, there are plenty of replica jerseys (not original) that look quite like the original. You can settle for that.

Unused Soccer Shoes

During my trip to Africa, we swung by UAE in Dubai and I was able to purchase football shoes. I though about getting koolaburra boots but when I saw how discounted the price is on a pair of soccer shoes I did not have second thoughts and just bought them. Too bad because I haven’t had any football practice for a few months now so I haven’t gotten to using it yet.

Not Sure About Tomorrow

Investing is one of the best ways to handle one’s earnings, especially for athletes like soccer players. With the risk of getting injured and retiring early always lurking around, it is wise to invest one’s money on things that will make it grow.

Something like a life insurance is a great start because it will help secure the future of the athlete’s family. So better start thinking about this now because you can never be sure about tomorrow.
