ITIL V3 – Five Key Benefits

ITIL (the IT Infrastructure Library), now updated to version 3, has been around for quite some time and doesn’t show any signs of disappearing into the sunset as so many other initiatives have in the past. So what is it that keeps ITIL on top of the game and in the arsenal of many top IT organizations?

ITIL Keeps Evolving

One of the reasons for the success of the framework is hinted at by the version number. It’s not a static, one size fits all, solution to total quality management. It has adapted to the changing needs of business; and continues to do so.

It Is a Framework

Rather than presenting users with a fixed set of processes or procedures, ITIL is a framework into which organizations can build their own processes and procedures. This flexibility makes it adaptable to any business need.

It Is Modular

You don’t have to implement the whole of ITIL to get the benefit from it. Organizations, and particularly smaller businesses, can implement just those parts of the framework that are best suited to their needs. Even if you do want the whole thing, you can implement it in stages and start to see some immediate benefits as you roll out the framework.

It Is Scalable

ITIL can be scaled to suit just about any size of business since it is designed to be flexible.

It Is Business Focused

ITIL has always been about aligning the technology with the business need; this is especially true of ITIL 3. Have you ever felt like the technology could threaten to overwhelm the business? Sometimes it’s almost as if the business is only there to give the technology something to do. ITIL 3 is designed to keep everyone’s attention on the needs of the business. After all, the technology is really only there to support those needs.

So is ITIL v3 something that your organization needs? Check it out for yourself; it could be worth your time.

Let’s Move to Holmes Chapel in Cheshire!

Thinking of moving out to Cheshire? Take a look at the village of Holmes Chapel which is a nice area within easy commuting distance of Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham.

Holmes Chapel is a village in Cheshire. It’s quite small, the last census measured the population at under 6,000 and it retains an «old fashioned» feel (and I mean that in a positive way) compared to my previous experiences of living in cities and in other towns.

Geographically it is less than a mile from the M6 motorway which means you have easy access to the M6 and the M56 so it’s easy to get to Manchester, Warrington, Crewe, Stoke, Birmingham and obviously many places in between and all around. It’s also on the Crewe to Manchester train line so getting into Manchester is fairly easy as the journey takes approximately 40 minutes. Holmes Chapel station also has a book club and has won lots of awards. Compared to the grim faceless and vandalised train stations you find in most towns and cities, it’s great!

The village has two primary schools, Hermitage and Holmes Chapel Primary both of which have excellent Ofsted and DFES results so it’s a great place to move to find a better state education for your kids. It also has a secondary school and attached sixth form centre which again, is very highly rated by Ofsted and is particularly strong in Science. In other words, if you’re looking to move to somewhere outside of the city so your kids can go to good local schools all the way through then it’s an excellent choice.

Because of the good schools and the good commuting opportunities, Holmes Chapel is relatively expensive compared to some larger more industrialised towns. The cheapest houses I’ve seen in recent months come in at around £160,000 for a fairly small 2 bedroomed terraced house. For a three bedroomed semi or terraced you’d probably be looking ar £170-190k and for a 3 bedroom detached house, over £230k. There are also lots of large 4 bed detached houses in the village which currently sell for anything between £270k and £370k upwards depending on where they are and what they’re like. It is possible to rent as well though, and three bedroom houses seem to be available for around £700 a month upwards.

Holmes Chapel has a lot of older residents because a lot of the housing was built in the 70’s with more in the mid 1980’s and bought as new by people moving into the area to take advantage of the schools, commuting and the general niceness of the environment. Many of these people are now nearing retirement. This means that there is a nice relaxed feel to the place and a stroll to the shops will generally produce many polite smiles, nods and hellos from people you don’t actually know. Again, a very nice and old fashioned attitude that has been sadly lost in many places where people scurry about in fear of being attacked or assaulted.

There is a Youth Club and a Leisure Centre and two private sports and leisure clubs which also provide excellent sporting and social facilities throughout the year. Holmes Chapel also has a library, doctors surgery, a dentist and an opticians alongside a variety of excellent local shops and businesses.

All in all if you are looking for somewhere to commute to Manchester or Warrington from where you can find excellent local schools then Holmes Chapel is a good option and well worth a look.

Premier League Match Time: Chelsea Vs Blackburn

Premier League match time arrives at Stamford Bridge when Chelsea host Blackburn, in match week 23, on January 15.

This is the second meeting between the teams, this season; the first leg was hosted by Blackburn on October 30 and went 2-1 in the champions’ favour. The score-line doesn’t give a true indication of Rovers’ excellent showing on the day. Emerton and Miame Diouf gave great support to Benjani a stand out performer who put the home side ahead on 21 minutes. It can justly be said that Blackburn took the game to Chelsea, but in the end it was a tale of missed opportunities for Sam Allardyce’s squad, with Pederson wayward with his free-kicks.

Under the cosh in the first half, Chelsea made a better fist of it in the second, with Ivanovic, Zhirkov and Cole all standing up to be counted on a day Terry and Drogba looked off-colour.

Head to head, Chelsea have established a 12-2 lead over Blackburn in 20 league games played between the sides over the last decade.

Chelsea, who led the points table up to match week 15, appear to have come apart at the seams, in their last 10 games, winning just 2, while losing 4 and drawing the remainder. Those 4 defeats include a shock 1-0 loss at Molineux to Wolves in match week 22.

Blackburn have given a better account of themselves, by winning 4 while losing 5 and drawing 1 of their last 10 league games. They won their last game, at home against Liverpool, by a 3-1 margin.

Currently placed 5th in the table, Chelsea have won 7 of 10 games hosted by them while drawing 2, and losing just the one. Blackburn, in ninth place, have won just 3 of 11 games on the road, while losing 7 and drawing the remaining.

Though their current form appears impressive, Blackburn will find the going tough playing the champions away at Stamford Bridge. Ancelotti’s men will have a point or two to prove as they strive to catch up with Manchester United who have been moving farther adrift with every succeeding game. More importantly, Chelsea will try to prove their naysayers wrong, as the champions appear to have been written off as title contenders this season, by all but their most fanatic supporters.

Chelsea had the following men in their starting eleven against Wolves in match week 22: Cech, Bosingwa, Ivanovic, Terry, Cole, Ramires, Essien, Lampard, Kalou, Drogba and Malouda. Kakuta, Sturridge and Anelka were used as substitutes.

Blackburn’s starting eleven against Liverpool in match week 22 comprised Bunn, Salgado, Samba, Nelsen, Givet, Hoillett, Dunn, Pederson, Olsson, Diouf, Mwaruwari. Goulon, Morris and Diouf were he substitutes who played in the game.

What Are Mortgage Brokers And Why To Use One

«Mortgage» is formed from two words: the French word «mort» meaning «dead» and the word «gage» from Old English meaning «pledge». Sir Edward Coke (who lived from 1552 to 1634) explained the term: the land as considered «dead» to the mortgagor, as if the person never had it.

Today, the term mortgage is used for a loan for purchasing propriety. The most common

mortgages are the home mortgages. It is not common to pay cash a home today. The

«life’ of a home mortgage is from 20 to 30 years. During all this years, the owner will pay

regularly and with the specified amount. There is also a term for the interest rate,

established to respect the seller and also the buyer conditions.

Most people think at a bank when thinking at a mortgage. It is the most trustful way to

get a mortgage; even the banks are asking the most rigorous set of documents to approve

it. The stability has its price: banks don’t give the best interest rate, but there is also the

possibility to negotiate for the best acceptable solution.

Pertinent information empowers the burrower with the knowledge to make appropriate

decisions for his family and themselves.

The banks are making their money from activities like mortgage, so there will be always

good solutions for everyone. People can «shop around» to find the best mortgage

condition.

What are the mortgage brokers? They are making all the legwork for the customer.

Specialized websites are offering «perfect loan programs» in a few minutes. A

professional research must be made to find the appropriate opportunity to buy the house

of our dreams.

Financial brokerage is a licensed company or individual who obtains a loan for borrowers

by selecting the best available solution at the best available rate. Real estate brokers help

borrowers to get a loan in accordance with their needs, making in the same time a

profitable investment for the financial brokerage or lender. All the work can be done

online, leading to a fast win-win situation for all.

The load mortgage broker has a professional expertise with direct access to many loan

products, providing customers efficient and cost-effective options that are meeting their

specific needs. He will provide customers with choice, convenience and expertise.

A good broker is the customer’s mentor, guiding him to the entire loaning process,

balancing the client’s financial goals, offering extensive choices.

A professional mortgage broker is using loan packages with less than perfect credit histories,

permitting to his customers to enjoy the benefits of home-ownership.

A mortgage broker isn’t a banker, neither another financial lender. He is (or must be) a

real estate professional offering products and services. A broker can act as a banker too,

when funding loans.

Maybe the best part of a home mortgage broker activity is the help he is giving in

assessing the requirements and saving the customers time. Having contact with many

banks they can offer advices on the ways to overcome the frontiers to loan qualification.

A mortgage broker also knows the laws and regulations, simplifying the borrowers’ task.

He is taking the application and obtains the credit report and appraisal. He counsels the

customer on the approval process; obtain the credit report and appraisal, collecting the

necessary documents. He also provides separate services and facilities to wholesale

lenders; market the lender’s product also. Mortgage broker also is assembling and

delivering the completed loan package.

The mortgage broker really cares about the quality of the loan; the safety and soundness

of the mortgage lending community is linked to the success and efficiency of its home

loan originations. Consumers who exercise their choice choose mortgage brokers because

they are dedicated to their customers, who are the consumers, and in the same time the

wholesale lenders.

May the broker steer consumers to the lender who pays the highest fees to the broker?

Isolated instances of steer can occur, but the free-market economy is protecting the

customer giving him a powerful weapon: the vigorous open competition. Each consumer

can shop and compare the prices; his final option will lead him to the best solution. The

level of choices has no precedent.

Barnsley FC – Neil Redfearn, A Midfield General

Arguably Barnsley’s most influential and talented footballer, Neil Redfearn was instrumental in helping the Tykes achieve promotion to the English Premier League in 1997.

Redfearn’s career stretched from 1982 to 2008, he played 851 games and scored 176 goals. He started is long career at Bolton Wanderers but it was a move from Oldham Athletic to Barnsley in 1991 that catapulted him to new heights. Redfearn had a great match day engine and having all the traits required of a good quality midfielder he was given the club captaincy as well as becoming the regular penalty taker for the club. In an era where drinking was not discouraged and an athletes diet was not as strict as it is today, Redfearn rarely missed a game through injury or illness.

Sat in the second tier of English football, manager Danny Wilson began to assemble a Barnsley team that was able to challenge for a place in English football’s holy grail, the Premier League. Clint Marcelle, Andy Liddell, Paul Wilkinson, Matty Appelby and John Hendrie all came into Wilson’s side in the search for promotion.

In the 1996/97 season Redfearn as ever lead by example. His superb attitude on and off the field was admired by everyone associated with the club. Barnsley got off to a terrific start to the season winning their first five games. The Tykes would only win one of their next eight drawing five and losing two. The Midfield-General was setting his standards high on the pitch, talking with his feet he had already scored eight league goals going into the middle of November.

A double winning season over rivals Sheffield United and a 2-0 home win against Manchester City helped Wilson’s men secure second place and automatic promotion to the Premier League. It was Redfearn’s and Barnsley’s finest hour. The club captain missed just one game all season and scored 17 goals, he was a club hero.

The Premier League was not a success for the Tykes, relegation lead to the departure of Wilson to rivals Sheffield Wednesday and Redfearn left for £1 million to Chartlton Athletic. Redfearn scored a brace in a controversial 3-2 home defeat to Liverpool. He showed that he had the ability to play in the top tier of English football.

In what was a colourful career, Redfearn was a superb servant to the game. He knew where the back of the net was. There are plenty of managers up and down the country that would love to have a player of Redfearn’s ability, commitment and professionalism amongst their ranks today.

Behind the Face of a Football Genius

Although I can’t consider myself a football fan, it seems virtually impossible to escape World Cup fever. Especially after the ‘head-butting’ incident involving Zinedine Zidane, which dominated the sports pages. Even someone like me, who isn’t really that interested in football, was drawn into the storyline that played out following the finals.

The dominant question on many people’s minds seemed to be this: Why would an illustrious, talented footballer ruin his curtain call and retirement from the world stage at the most prestigious event in football history, with an ignominious red card for a head-butt? Never mind what was said to Zidane – the Question many sports journalists, fans and non-fans alike were wondering about was: What on earth made him do it?

So, let’s take a look at the BaZi AKA Destiny Code of the talismanic Zinedine Zidane, to see if we can understand why he saw red on the Finals Day.

What a person is reluctant to reveal about himself, can always be deciphered from his Destiny Code. A person’s BaZi tells us not just who we perceive him to be, but who he really is. The Heavenly Stems, which form the top half of a person’s Destiny Code, represent the immediate, the obvious, the surface personality, that which we perceive of the person, when we first meet him. But to truly know what a person is like, we must delve beyond the surface. So, let’s take a look at Zidane’s Destiny Code.

Zidane’s BaZi reveals a formation known as Shang Guan Qi Sha or Hurting Officer controls Seven Killings Formation. This is a formation that is typically found in outstanding martial artists (Bruce Lee’s chart for example has a similar formation) and also individuals with unique physical abilities. Since there are not that many martial artists today, this formation is usually applied in the context of sports, since sports is a physical art form. It is this structure that gives Zidane his magic touch with the football. The chart shows two types of Fire formations, indicating that he can strike the ball equally well with both his right and left legs. As his Day Master is seated on a Seven Killing star, this indicates quick reflexes, charisma, as well as the presence of a good ‘killer instinct’ – hence, his cool and calm demeanour when taking penalties! It also shows that he has strong leadership qualities.

The strong Hurting Officer, which is represented by the element of Bing or Yang Fire, usually marks the individual as one who does not like to be controlled and is impulsive. Hence, it indicates challenges when it comes to playing in a team-based sport like football and problems for coaches in controlling him. Persons with strong Hurting Officers are also highly individualistic, and have strong showmanship skills. In the study of BaZi, Bing Fire is the fire of the sun, and carries with it qualities such as beauty, passion, intensity, brilliance and magnanimity, all which are hallmarks of Zidane’s style of play – the little touches, the acrobatic dazzling he-makes-it-look-easy ball-acrobatics he pulls off, and his ability to not only score goals, but assist in goals being scored.

When one has Bing Fire as the Hurting Officer star, the person is typically short-tempered and impulsive. Furthermore, Zidane’s Hurting Officer star sits on Yang Ren or Goat Blade, which means it is a very intense, hot and explosive Hurting Officer star. Hence he has been sent off 14 times in his career, including once for stamping on a player during a World Cup match, and on another occasion for head-butting, while playing for his club, Juventus. He also holds the dubious record of being one of the four players to have been sent off in a World Cup Final in the history of the World Cup.

So what made Zidane see red at this World Cup, when he knew that it would be his last international match? This year being the year of Bing Xu or Fire Dog, the Fire is extremely hot. So, his Hurting Officer, which is already extremely strong, becomes excessively strong. When an element is overwhelmingly strong, its negative qualities usually come out or feature prominently. When a Hurting Officer star becomes negative, the person becomes petulant, rebellious and has too much fighting spirit.

Also, the interaction between his current 10 year luck pillar of Geng Xu and the annual pillar of Bing Xu reveals a formation known as Hurting Officer sees Officer (Shang Guan Jian Guan), which denotes chaos, irrational and excessively emotional behaviour, problems with authority, and going against the accepted order of things. In addition, there is also a Harm formation between the Xu (Dog) of the year, the Xu (Dog) in his 10 year luck pillar, and the You (Rooster) in his BaZi. This Harm formation denotes a lack of peace or an inner anger.

His Yi Wood Day Master needs Gui Water to help it grow, and wet Ji Earth, found in the Chou or Ox, to pacify the heat, and enable the Earth to grow. Gui Water is the Resource Star, and also represents the Mother whilst Ji Earth is the Wealth Star, which also represents the wife. Both these elements are important to this Yi Wood Day Master. What exactly was said to him that provoked him remains the subject of debate but from Zidane’s BaZi, certainly any insult about his mother or his wife, would probably have triggered his temper, based on his BaZi!

This raises an important point about BaZi that often gets overlooked. In the past, BaZi was designed to reveal fate and destiny. It was unchanged. The path that was laid out was essentially the path that would be walked. Today, we do not perceive BaZi in this way. Destiny is but one of the possible paths a person can walk. Destiny can, to some degree be changed. In the old days, a heart attack was a death sentence. Today, if you know about it early enough, it can be prevented and treated. The power of free will, the advantage of informed choice, and the ability to make an informed decision, means that how a person lives their life, remains in their hands.

What does this mean in the case of Zinedine Zidane? Admittedly, Zidane’s BaZi indicates how he would react to a provocation and that his reaction would bring about negative outcomes. But, at that moment, at the 110th minute on that pitch in Berlin, ultimately, Zidane held his destiny, in his own hands – or rather, head.

The Power of the Officer

Despite being sent-off, Zidane was awarded the Golden Ball Award and so far, there seems to be no vilification of him in his home country for what he did. Why? His current 10 year luck pillar shows strong Officer Luck as a result of the combination between his Yi Wood Day Master, and Geng Metal, so he will still continue to command respect and honour as the Officer represents good status and reputation. This head-butt will not tarnish his reputation substantially, nor detract from his skills and talents. Xu (Dog) is the graveyard for Xin Metal, which is the Seven Killings Star. Seven Killings represents critics, petty people and detractors. These will eventually go away as the year goes on so they will not prove to be a long-term problem. The indications of his chart are that he’ll probably get to keep the Golden Ball award as well.

According to Wikipedia, Zidane earned a 6.4 million euros salary at Real Madrid, and in 2005-2006, he earned 8.6 million euros from sponsorship and endorsement deals. This is also in tune with his 10 year luck pillar of Geng Xu, which he entered in 2005. Geng Metal and Yi Wood, which is his day Master, are combining with the Officer. This typically represents strong sponsorship and endorsement opportunities for a sportsman, whilst the Xu (Dog) brings strong Wealth Luck. In this luck pillar, an ambassadorial role for Zidane is ideal and he should also have no problems with endorsements. All he has to do is say yes, and his wealth should be secure until 2015. He will be wise to stay away from coaching or management opportunities as his BaZi indicates he lacks the patience to coach or manage a football team.

Charisma has a Face

It is not uncommon for BaZi practitioners and even Feng Shui practitioners, to rely on face reading or Mian Xiang, as a back-up discipline. There have been times when I have used face-reading for quick or on the spot evaluations of a client’s luck, when a BaZi chart was not available. The face, almost always, confirms what we already know from the Destiny Code. So what story does Zidane’s face tell? If you look closely at his face, you will notice that his eyebrows pierce upwards, at the ‘head’ (the end closer to the centre of the face). In Mian Xiang, these are known as Spear-headed eyebrows and denote individuals who are highly opinionated and quick off the mark. Usually, individuals with Spear-headed eyebrows also have prominent or strong Hurting Officer (Shang Guan) nature.

Zidane has strong, high and outward growing cheekbones – these denote strong leadership and a charismatic nature. He has sharp, pointed eyes which indicate impatience, but an eye for detail, hence his ability to create possibilities on the football field, out of seemingly nothing at all.

In Mian Xiang, each year of a person’s life is represented by a single point on the face. The ages of 27-30 are represented by the temples, the life palace or Yin Tang, which is located between the eyebrows, and the Forest, which is the area above the ear. On Zidane’s face, all these areas are sunken or the hairline crosses these areas, denoting that these years are less favourable. However, once Zidane entered eyebrow luck, at 31 years old (30 by Western age calculations), his luck clearly took a turn for the better. His eyebrows are clear and charismatic, not too thick and upward growing. Indeed, in 2002, Zidane won the UEFA Champions League Most Valuable Player award, and transferred from Juventus to Real Madrid for a record 66 million euros. At 35, he has just finished eyebrow luck and entered eye luck – which means that whilst his luck will still be good, the best is probably behind him, so his decision to retire is a wise one indeed.

Brief History of the LPWA

The LPWA, or Ladies Professional Wrestling Association, was a wrestling promotion that featured women wrestlers with an emphasis on athleticism rather than beauty. The association was started by ex-wrestler Tor Berg in 1989 and lasted until 1992. Berg attempted to begin the promotion again in the beginning of 1999, joining forces with the NWA and changing the name to form the WNWA (Womens National Wrestling Alliance), but this venture was also short-lived as the promotion only lasted until 2000.

Before closing up shop in 1992, the LPWA held its one and only pay-per-view event, which was known as the «Super Ladies Showdown». The event took place on February 23, 1992 in Rochester, Minnesota at the Mayo Civic Center. The main events of the pay-per-view showing were the LPWA Singles Championship and the LPWA Japanese Championship. There were 12 matches televised for the event, with four of them being first round match-ups for the Japanese Championship, two semi-final matches for the Japanese Championship, and then the actual championship match.

The LPWA Japanese Championship was won by Harley Saito, who defeated Denise Storm to win the belt. The LPWA Singles Championship was won by Terri Power, better known as Tori from the WWF, who defeated Lady X. Lady X had previously won the championship over Susan Sexton on January 31, 1991. Lady X was also known as Peggy Lee Leather of the WWF, who formed a tag team partnership with Wendi Richter. Richter later became the WWF singles champion and defeated Leather in her quest for the belt. These two went on to battle each other in POWW(Powerful Women of Wrestling) as well. Lady X was also known for her performance in the lingerie battle royal for the AWA SuperClash III pay-per-view event and also appeared in WOW (Women of Wrestling) as Thug from 2000 to 2001.

The Tag Team Championship was also part of the LPWA’s only pay-per-view event and featured Leilani Kai and Judy Martin beating Bambi and Malia Hosaka for the championship. Kai was part of the WWF in the 1980’s and at one time was the champion after defeating Wendi Richter. She also paired with Judy Martin to form the Glamour Girls, who became both WWF and LPWA Tag Team Champions at different times in their careers. Kai also held the NWA World Womens Championship and wrestled for the WCW under the name of Patty Stonegrinder.

One of the most famous woman wrestlers of all-time, Madusa Miceli, who wrestled for the LPWA, WWF, and also for All Japan Women’s Pro Wrestling. She was the first non-Japanese wrestler to compete in the All-Japan league of women wrestlers.

Following is a synopsis of the list of the LPWA’s championship holders.

LPWA Singles

  1. Susan Sexton / Awarded title in January of 1990
  2. Lady X / Defeated Susan Sexton January 31, 1991
  3. Terri Power / Defeated Lady X February 23, 1992

Didier Drogba and the Ivory Coast Men’s National Soccer Team

Didier Drogba was a smash hit at the African Nations Cup which was produced by CAF (Confederation of African Football) and hosted in Egypt. The final with Ivory Coast took place on February 10 2006 and was won by the host country Egypt 4-2 on penalty shoot-out.

Didier Drogba had the most impact of any other national player of any other of the participaying teams during the course of the intra African match-ups. He is essentially a centeral force on any of the teams he has played on.. This also includes Chelsea of the English Premier League of which he is also a striker.

For team mate, Toure, Drogba presents a potentially decisive edge in the first competitive meeting between Ivory Coast and Nigeria since the 1994 Nations Cup semi-final won by the Nigerians on penalties.

«Drogba is a really great player and he is something special. We are really proud of what hehas a done for the team».

«It’s going to be a very hard game. But now we are in the semi-finals, anything can happen. We’ve got our chance,» said defender Toure.

Seconds into the second half, the whole difference was made when Drogba netted his fourth goal of the tournament and the Elephants could afford to sit back for most of the second half.

The goal stung the Nigerian bench who immediately replaced Mikel Obi with Jay Jay Okocha and Kanu Nwankwo with Julius Aghahowa, but still the Nigerians could not turn the game round. This is the first time the Ivorians, who have qualified for the World cup, will have played in the final since winning the title in 1992 in Senegal.

The Egyptians must thank goalkeeper Essam EL Hadary for saving two penalties as Ivory Coast’s Didier Drogba missed a crucial first spot kick for the Elephants.

The battle for African Footballer of the year

Drogba overshadowed Samuel Eto’o, his rival for the African Footballer of the Year award usually held in late February. Didier Drogba scored the decisive penalty to put Ivory Coast into the last four in a dramatic shootout victory over Cameroon in Cairo.

However it might be blindsided by a contender from Egypt. Could Mido be in the mix?

Pre-Season Soccer Training – The Basics

Effective pre-season training is important for all soccer players of any age, whether you play for a team in the Premier League or your local college team and the work done in pre-season can define the competitive season ahead, making the difference between winning trophies or being also-rans.

The Pre-season soccer training schedule should be planned out by the coach in order to maximise each session. Ideally training should begin at least five to six weeks before the season actually starts.

Each training session should start with a thorough warm-up taking care not to strain any muscles in early pre-season. Ideally each session should begin with a five minutes gentle jogging followed by gentle static stretching, followed by more jogging followed by a more intensive stretching session, while taking care not to over stretch and cause damage to muscles, tendons or ligaments.

Stretching for soccer should include all major muscle groups, with a mixture of dynamic and static stretches. Dynamic stretching exercises that are perfect for soccer and include swinging the arms and circling the shoulders, twisting the upper body and swinging the legs as if kicking an imaginary ball, be careful not to over stretch with these exercises. Static stretches do not involve movement of the joint and are essential for the quadriceps and hamstrings. Ballistic stretches which involve bouncing to maximise the stretch are no longer advocated and should be avoided.

Running is excellent for aerobic conditioning and should be encouraged as improved fitness will pay dividends later in the season, this should involve distance work, sprinting and running that involves work with the soccer ball. Dribbling the soccer ball around cones or across a defined area will improve conditioning, speed and ball control at the same time.

Work with the soccer ball can be extended by spending time controlling the ball with the feet, knees and head, a perfect way to practice this is to divide players into pairs and have one player throw the ball while the other controls and returns to his partner.

Each session can be completed with a short game possibly integrating two touch soccer which will improve ball control and passing accuracy and also encourage thinking and movement off the ball. Following the game a cool down with stretching should take place to minimise aching and tired muscles which will aid recovery for your next session.

During early pre-season is it important not to over exert the players and to make the sessions fun which will motivate if players are tired not too push them too much, this can result in injury and lack of enthusiasm. Another important factor for any training session is adequate hydration, ensure all the players have a water bottle and keep adequately hydrated throughout the training session.
