Skills Every Player Should Acquire in Australian Football

The important way to start is to assess your own abilities I. e. work out your own weaknesses and then attempt to correct them. If there are attributes you don’t have such as height, strength and speed, then, to make up for this, try to develop your talents or football skills to the greatest extent you can.

This article was part of a booklet produced to fast track the football knowledge of schoolboy players about to represent their state at the All Australian National Schoolboys Australian Football Championships in 1973.

1. Kick a ball with either foot accurately under pressure;

2. Handball with either hand at least ten metres;

3. Assess the bouncing and the throw-ins of the ball by the various umpires.

4. Play a kick behind the ball when it is in the forward line. Take the marks kicked out by opposition defenders and return with long kicks into the forward line. (This is the traditional role of a ruckman, one which is still important when introducing young players to the basic plays of our game).

5. Be extremely fit; yet able to anticipate the flow of the game to conserve energy.

6. Develop a complete understanding with the other ruckman and the rover (Today, we call them mid-fielders). They must be a team within a team.

1. Accuracy when kicking for goal;

2. Fast, sharp leading for the ball;

3. Accurate delivery to the full forward;

4. The ability to turn on both feet, but where possible to turn towards the goals.

5. The «ball/goal hungry» desire where necessary in getting the ball. But he must be a team man ensuring the man in the best position gets the chance to score the goal.

Backmen:

1. Must have an accurate, steady kick; solid marking ability; and good ball control.

2. Must be able to punch the ball away; bump with hip and shoulder; tackle fiercely to stop the ball moving on; or knock the ball out of the pack to the advantage of his team.

3. Must have coolness under pressure but still be «ball hungry».

4. Must have the ability to back his own judgment when going out to meet the ball.

5. Must concentrate on always being in front of his man I. e. between his man and the ball and inside his man forcing him to turn away from the goals.

Centre and wings, traditionally:

1. The qualities they need are a combination of those of the backs and forwards.

2. At different times, they must adopt both those roles, attacking and defending.

In the modern game, players involved at higher grades often fulfil multiple roles in a game. So to become a more useful player for your team look to develop the skills that you would require to fill multiple roles in your team.

Spanish Primera Division News and Notes

There has been a great deal of action and excitement over the past couple of weeks in the Spanish Primera Division, and the news and results have been coming in fast and furious since the season ended just two weeks ago. Let’s take a look at everything that has transpired over the course of the past few days to get an early look at what the Primera Division will look like next year.

Barcelona Retains Crown

Barcelona was able to win the Primera Division again this year by beating Valladolid 4-0 in the final game of the season. Barcelona was also able to set a Primera Division record this season by accruing 99 total points over the course of 38 games played. Lionel Messi led all scorers this season on Barcelona with 34 goals in league play and 47 goals in all competitions, which tied the club record set by Ronaldo in the 1996-1997 season. Real Madrid, despite having one of the highest payrolls in Primera Division history, was only able to garner second place. Finishing three points behind Barcelona, Real Madrid finished runner-up for the second straight season despite having one of the greatest collections of players ever assembled on one team.

Team Movements

Next season, the UEFA Champions League will be the homes of Valencia and Sevilla, as both teams qualified through their finishes of third and fourth, respectively, within the Spanish Primera Division. 5th-place Mallorca and 6th-place Getafe have secured spots in next season’s UEFA Europa League while Valladolid, Tenerife, and Xenex have all been placed in the second division.

Summer Transfers

Ricardo Costa has been transferred to Valencia on four-year free deal. Costa had been playing for Lille, but Valencia’s inclusion into the UEFA Champions League forced them to have to make this deal. Costa joins Mehmet Topal, a midfielder from Turkey, who also was signed just a few weeks ago to strengthen the Vallencia team going into next season’s play.

Barcelona continues to get stronger, as they worked out a deal with rival Vallencia to transfer David Villa to the Barcelona squad. Villa has passed his physical examination and is now a member of the powerful Barcelona championship team. In his last five seasons, Villa has averaged 22 goals scored per season, which ranks him near the top of that category in La Liga.

Atletico Madrid, who were able to clinch the inaugural UEFA Europa League title, has gained a transfer in the likes of Arsenal’s Fran Merida. Merida comes to Atletico Madrid on a free transfer for a four-year deal. Merida hasn’t seen a great amount of big-game action since joining the Arsenal squad in 2005.

Sevilla has gotten Mouhamadou Dabo from AS Saint-Etienne on a free transfer. Dabo’s agreement with Sevilla extends the length of four seasons. Part of Dabo’s contract will include a 25 million euro buyout clause. Dabo, a fullback is able to play on either side of the field, with most of his time from this past season spent on the left side of the field.

Coaching Change

Real Madrid parted ways with coach Manuel Pelligrini to bring Jose Mourinho as their new coach for next season’s play. Pellegrini departs at the midpoint of the new two-year deal that he signed before the beginning of this past season. Mourinho, who is currently under contract with Inter Milan until 2012, will need to work out a plan with that squad before he can make settle in to his new home with Real Madrid.

Contract Extension

A one-year contract extension has been given to Atletico Madrid’s coach Quique Sanchez Flores. After winning the inaugural UEFA Europa League title, Flores led Atletico Madrid to a 9th-place finish in the Spanish Primera Division this past season.

Chelsea Tower Hotel Apartments – Excellent Dubai Accommodation

Our flight landed on Dubai International Airport, and after collecting our luggage we headed straight to get a taxi which is available just as you step out of the airport. Surprisingly, we reached Chelsea Tower Hotel Apartments in just about 15 minutes. Enroute, got out of the taxi to see the majestic Burj Khalifa Tower with all its grandeur; towering above us.

Check- in process was fairly simple and quick. Diana the receptionist was understanding enough to get over with the process as fast as possible seeing how exhausted we were after the long flight. It was quite a busy time, I suppose, because the lobby was filled with people and that made it look so vibrant. There were 5 lifts so one never had to wait longer than a minute.

Fast forward to the room on the 41st floor, gigantic and beautiful with huge windows and a balcony that overlooked the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai skyline on one side and the Arabian Gulf on the other. I think we were already in love with Chelsea Towers apart-hotel by that time. Comfortable beds, spacious rooms, free Wi-fi and a kitchen with all necessary equipment were a few of the other amenities provided by the hotel.

We would go to the gym each morning and sometimes we’d also take a swim in the pool alternating with the Jacuzzi at times. The poolside staff and the spa masseuses were always extremely polite and helpful. Sometimes we took morning breakfast at the Chelsea Garden Restaurant & Café (they served amazing coffee by the way) and sometimes we went outside to the many popular eateries just around the corner such as Tim Hortons and Starbucks. There were other bistros and joints like Nando’s, Chilis, Burger King, KFC and Pizza Hut also very close to the hotel.

Talking about travelling around, we never had to worry because the Financial Centre Metro Station 1 was right across the road and incase of short distances, taxis were a life saver and always readily available. My friends and I were stoked about the fact that the hotel was just 10 minutes from the Dubai Mall and so we visited the mall every other day of our trip.

The Chelsea tower hotel which was in the centre of the city and right on Sheikh Zayed Road made Dubai’s major shopping destinations, tourist destinations, beaches, leisure parks and theme parks easily accessible. This was one of the main advantages for us, being tourists.

How To Strum Guitar – Part 1

Learning how to strum guitar is one of the most fundamental aspects of the instrument – it needs lots of time and patience to master. Unfortunately there are many guitar courses which neglect to devote sufficient resources towards teaching this important topic and ultimately it’s the students which pay the price. In this article series we’ll look at the most important strumming patterns to learn, how to strum correctly and some great beginner songs to practice with.

Firstly it’s important to state that while guitar chords are important you should never forget that they are only half the picture. In order to be able to play songs on guitar, you also need to have mastered strumming. Many students incorrectly believe that in order to play lots of songs you need to know lots of different strums but this is simply not the case. Luckily we have something called «Universal Guitar Strums» and you’ll be able to play hundreds of songs with just 3 or 4 of these in your arsenal.

These kinds of powerful strum patterns are extremely versatile and they’ll enable you to play many different songs all with the same pattern. They are very useful and essential knowledge for all beginner guitar students especially if you’re starting out on acoustic guitar.

The key to learning how to strum guitar is to practice the patterns very slowly over and over again. When you practice things slowly your mind will record everything you are trying to do perfectly and you’ll find that this is the best way to learn how to play anything on guitar. In part 2 we’ll discuss the technical aspects of guitar strumming.

A Simple Introduction To Fantasy Football

As the name indicates, fantasy football is a game where participants build up an imaginary team of real football players. Points are scored or deducted according to the performance of the players on the field. Points are usually awarded when any of the following things happen: a player plays in a match, scores a goal, assists in a goal through a pass or touch which led to the goal, saves a penalty, a goalkeeper saves 3 shots or more.

Points are also deducted from a team's score if any of the following happens: a player receives a yellow or red card, misses a penalty kick, scores own goal, a goalkeeper concedes a goal, etc.

The number of points awarded for scoring a goal may be higher than the points awarded for assisting in a goal. Likewise, the number of points deducted for a bigger offense would be higher than the points deducted for a minor offense and so on. How many points are to be awarded or deducted are decided in advance before the game begins.

Most of the fantasy football leagues will ask participants to select a team of eleven players within a specified budget range. You are not allowed to exceed the budget range. Typically you need to select a balanced team consisting of 1 goalkeeper, 4 defenders, 3 to 4 midfielders and a couple of forwards. Some of the fantasy football leagues also have other restrictions like you can only selected a limited number of players per club.

Many people love playing fantasy football. This is because a regular football fan who watches different teams play in premier league would love the idea of ​​owning one of the teams. Fantasy football gives people the opportunity to own a team of handpicked real life footballers. Is it any wonder then that some people are absolutely hooked on to this game? If you want to get started then head over to a popular fantasy football website and join a league. You can find dozens of them by doing a simple search online.

Once you join the league, the next step is to pick a name for your team. The name should be catchy and attractive. It also has to be unique.
