Buying Bowling Equipment

You can walk into almost any bowling alley today and find a pro shop ready to sell you any type of equipment that you may need to take your game to the next level. My writing about the bowling industry has taken a bit of a turn towards the increasing cost to participate in the sport. One of the biggest costs that the avid bowler faces is the cost of bowling equipment.

The state of the game today, much like in many sports, has been greatly affected by technology. If you do not have the best equipment, you are at a disadvantage to your competition. This comes with a cost. It is not uncommon for bowling balls to cost over $200. Most avid bowlers have 3 or more bowling balls in their arsenal. A bowling bag for three bowling balls can cost you over $100, and top of the line shoes are in the triple digits as well. With these three essentials in bowling, you are looking at an $800 investment.

There are some ways that you can cut costs. Of course, there are some lower performance bowling balls that you can purchase. It is suggested that you speak with a coach or pro shop operator who might be able to analyze your game to determine the best way to select your arsenal.

In my opinion, buy everything off the internet, except for new bowling balls. You can buy the bowling ball off the internet as well, but the reason I don’t is twofold. First, when you receive the bowling ball in the mail, you still have to go get it drilled. From what I have seen, this usually costs around $50. So, by the time you have paid for the ball online, shipping, and drilling, you can probably get it cheaper from the pro shop. It can cost more with inserts, thumb slugs, etc. Second, you can buy the bowling ball off the internet and have them drill it, but unless you are extremely knowledgeable about how to layout equipment. Me personally, I’m just very picky about my equipment and want to be there while it’s being drilled.

Another great way to find some of this equipment at a reasonable cost is through Craigslist. Beware, any searches I have attempted usually come back with a majority of the stuff that has been in someone’s attic since the 1970’s, but you may find a diamond in the rough once in a while.

Buying new bowling equipment is one of my favorite things. I hope these ideals help you save as much money as they have for me, which allows me to buy even more new equipment!

Why Do You Need SEO or PPC Services?

SEO and PPC Services are very important to the success of any internet website. If you wish to make money online, especially through advertising, then you will never be able to do so without the right SEO services or PPC services to back you up. This is because of the fact that all websites make money through online traffic. The more people visit your website and click on the links and ads, the more money you will make. This means it is very important for your website to have a clear idea in terms of what it is about. Once you know what the website is about, then it is a matter of attracting people who are interested in that subject matter.

The only way most people search for websites is through search engines. They go on Google, Yahoo!, or Bing to find websites related to the topic they want information about. That is why your website must be SEO optimized, and this can only be done by a writer who is a SEO specialist. Only through good SEO services will you be able to get articles and information on your website that will show up on search engines. You want your website to appear near the top, or as close to the top, for any number of keywords related to the topic. For example, if your article is about Manchester United, the famous English soccer team, then you would want «Manchester United», «MUFC», «Man Utd», «Man U», «soccer», and «football» to be used a number of times in the articles on your website. Only then will people who search for any of these keywords end up on your page. Otherwise, you could have a great website but no one will ever visit it, and you will not make any money from it either.

PPC services are just as important, because the best way to make money through websites is by pay per click advertising. This advertising is special because you get to put the ads on your website for free, usually through a program such as Google AdSense, and then you get a share of the profits every time someone clicks on one of those links. This way, you are making money without having to spend very much. But again, it is best to have a PPC specialist who can help you decide which types of ads are best for your website, and which types are unlikely to get any clicks.

If you have a football, or soccer, website, then it is no good having ads about beauty products or spa treatments. You want ads that are related, that your viewers will want to click on and learn more about. That way, you will stand a far greater chance of making money on your website. Only the right PPC services can give you that information.

League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game where players get to choose a champion and play together on teams of 3-5 players. The objective changes based on what game mode your playing but the general basis of the game is trying to kill the opposing champions in order to push towards their base and eventually wipe out their command building (Nexus). The best part about this game? Well apart from being ridiculously fun it is also 100% free!

I have played a ton of video games and I have to say that League of Legends is by far the best online MOBA game for free that you can find right now.

It also manages to combine the strategy element of real time strategy games with the fast, team based environment of first person shooters making it perfect for anyone who likes games from either genre!

How are the graphics you may ask? In my opinion the graphics are excellent. They can be turned either way up or way down allowing users with almost any kind of computer (except you dinosaurs that are still playing Red Alert 2 =P) to run it. They are also colorful and exciting, kind of like a much better version of Warcraft 2 for all you old timers. One things for certain.

The Design and Construction of the Yamato Battleship

The Yamato was one of two Yamato-class battleships that had an overall tonnage which eclipsed 70,000 tons. As such, they were the largest battleships constructed by any navy. The Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) constructed the giant battleships during the 1930s and early 1940s, with the first blueprints laid down in 1934. However, they were gradually modified and refined.

The plans outlined how the Yamato would have a beam wider than the Panama Canal. The ship’s architects placed most of the battleship’s armor at the center of the ship. This actually left the bow and stern with minimal armor.

Construction of the Yamato began in 1937. The Kure Naval Dockyards were expanded to ensure that it would be deep enough to house the first Yamato-class battleships. They expanded the gantry crane to 100 tonnes, and the dockyards were also covered to make sure that the battleship construction could not be detected.

They constructed the battleship with arc wielding. More than 1,000 watertight compartments were added to the Yamato during the construction period. In comparison the Titanic ocean liner had 15 watertight compartments. A steam turbine was also added to the battleship, but the ship still had a high fuel consumption rate. Higher fuel requirements limited the Yamato’s fuel supply and the distances it could cover.

The most essential addition to the Yamato battleship was its extensive arsenal. The IJN fitted the Yamato with a caliber of guns that U.S. battleships could not match. The Yamato’s primary guns were some 18.1 inches. These were the largest added to any battleship, and were mounted in three turrets. They had armor-piercing shells that weighed some 2,998 pounds, and each of the battleship’s gun turrets matched the weight of one U.S. destroyer. The battleship had a maximum range of about 25 miles.

The primary guns were formidable, but the Yamato’s anti-aircraft arsenal was not so extensive. During construction, the IJN added only 24 AA machine guns to its decks. By 1945, that number had increased to something like 150, mostly triple turret, AA machine guns. They included Type 96 25 mm AA guns. However, during Operation Ten-Go the guns only took out a small number of U.S. planes.

Although a battleship the Yamato could also support a small number of aircraft. The ship had suitable space for several floatplanes, which were the Aichi E13A. They were primarily scouting aircraft dispatched to spot enemy ships and fleets, but they also included a 250 kg bomb-load. As the battleship also had various types of radar the reconnaissance planes were not always required.

Construction of the Yamato was complete by 1940. Then the IJN added the battleship to their fleets, as the flagship, but the Yamato was seldom dispatched for naval battles. At the Battle of Midway it was a naval support ship, but in later battles such as the Battle of Leyte Gulf it was at the front line of the IJN. There the Yamato and its fleet wiped out two U.S. warships at Samar.

In 1945, the IJN sent the Yamato on another mission during the Battle of Okinawa. Operation Ten-Go required that the battleship beach itself ashore the coastline of Okinawa as a shore battery. With no air cover it could not reach Okinawa, and U.S. aircraft intercepted it. The subsequent aerial bombardment ensured that the Yamato flooded with water. A last great battleship was lost at sea. Then it was clear that battleships were outmoded in the new era of aircraft carrier fleets.

The Preparation For Leadership

Introduction

Generally, people ascribe the success or failure of a leader to their qualification or fitness to lead. For this reason when leaders are sought in the secular world, the qualifications of the individuals are usually given primary considerations. On the contrary, a close examination of the call of great leaders God used in the Bible reveals that God was not primarily concerned about qualifications. Eims Leroy, observed that Leaders like Moses, Gideon and Jeremiah openly confessed their inadequacy to perform the task God called them to do.1 If God was looking for qualified men then he would not have called them.

Does it then mean that preparations are not necessary for Leadership? According to Gottfried Osei-Mensah, there are prerequisites for spiritual leadership.2 This statement implies that some form of preparation is necessary. In addition, it is clear from scripture that every leader that God used had certain qualities or abilities that were necessary in performing their task. This observation however poses a question: Were those leaders prepared for their calling or did they just happen to have the qualities God required? With God, things do not happen by chance, therefore the thesis of this article is, those whom God used in the Bible as leaders were always prepared for their task.

To clarify this thesis statement selected leaders in the Bible are examined. The goal is, first to prove that the leaders were prepared for leadership and second, to determine the nature of the preparation and its importance to the leaders' call.

The following three categories of leaders have been selected for this study:

a) Those whose call and commission came as a surprise to them
b) Those who were mentored by their predecessor
c) Those who assumed leadership as a result of a crisis.

Under each leader the presentation will also be divided into three sections:

a) His life history before his call to leadership;
b) His leadership role and achievements;
c) Summary of the specific ways he was prepared for leadership. Finally an

evaluation would be made and conclusions drawn.

A. LEADERS WHOSE CALL AND COMMISSION CAME AS A SURPRISE

Among the leaders whose call and commission came as a surprise were Moses and Paul. These were leaders who had personal encounter with God whilst they were pursuing their own goals in life. These leaders would now be discussed individually to determine how each of them was prepared for leadership.

Moses

a) His life history before his call to leadership

The Bible, in Exodus Chapter 2-5, discusses the life of Moses from the time of his birth to that of his call. According to this section, Moses was born in Egypt by Hebrew parents. But because of an edict by Pharaoh to kill all the Hebrew baby boys, his mother was unable to raise him up from childhood to adulthood. However, by what can be termed divine providence, Howard F. Vos stated that Moses probably spent the first two or three 'years of his life with his own mother.3 The remaining period of his first forty years was spent in the palace as an adopted son of Pharaoh's daughter. Commenting on the years Moses spent in Pharaoh's palace, John C. Maxwell observed that he received the best of what Egypt offered both physically as well as intellectually. Maxwell cited Acts 7:22 which states that Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was mighty in words and deeds.4

In spite of the fact that he was raised up in Pharaoh's palace Moses acknowledged his Hebrew identity. He had to flee Egypt because he killed an Egyptian to protect an oppressed Hebrew. The next forty years of his life he spent in Midian tending the flock of Jethro. It was in Midian, at about 80 years of age that God made the surprised call to him.

b) His leadership role and achievements

In this section the goal is just to make a brief reflection of Moses' main task and achievements. According to John D. Hannah, in his commentary on Exodus, God commissioned Moses to deliver the children of Israel out of Egypt. He showed how that call and commission came as a complete surprise to Moses.5 Although God also promised to take the Israelites to a good and spacious land, that commission, according to Hannah, was not given to Moses. To support his point, he made reference to Stephen's statement about Moses' mission in Acts 7: 35-36, implying that there was no indication that Moses was supposed to take the Israelites to the promise land.6 Moses indeed accomplished the task God gave him in spite of all his objections about his inability when God called him. This was because he accepted in faith God's assuring words that he would be with him to accomplish that mission and also because of his ambition to deliver the Israelites from slavery. Commenting on the aspect of his ambition, Ted Engstrom pointed out that "he never lost sight of his ambition and calling in life which made it possible". 7 Throughout his mission these words of assurance had been a motivation for him.

In addition, Maxwell rightly observed, over the course of the years in the desert, Moses' leadership improved. He cited Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, as one person who helped to make that difference in his life.

Moses also accomplished something else that was not explicitly stated in scripture. DA Hubbard, in his article on the Pentateuch said that both Judaism and Christianity accepted without question the biblical tradition that Moses wrote the Pentateuch.8 These writings had been great materials not just for spiritual purpose but also for academic purpose.

Paul

a) His life history before his call to leadership

According to Act 21: 39; 22: 3, Paul was a native of Tarsus, a city of Cilicia. He was of pure Jewish descent and of the tribe of Benjamin (Phil 3: 5). He was a Hebrew and a Pharisee. He spoke Greek and was familiar with Aramaic (Acts 22: 2). Paul, learned tent making because it was customary that all Jewish boys learn a trade.

In his book, 'Paul the Leader', Oswald J. Sanders made this observation about Paul: "all the formative years were calculated, to prepare him to be an eminent Pharisee and Rabbi like his great mentor Gamaliel" .9 Paul studied under Gamaliel , a distinguished teacher of the law and of the school of Hillel. Sanders also observe that the school of Hillel embraced a broader and more liberal view in education than that of Shammai – the other distinguished school.10 In addition, Sanders stated that unlike the school of Shammai, the school of Hillel was interested in Greek literature. In that school, Paul learned to use works of Gentile authors. He surpassed his fellow-students in both academic achievements and in zeal for both God and the tradition of his fathers. He was almost a member of the Sanhedrin, the supreme legal and civil court. 11

b) His leadership role and achievements

Oswald Sanders, noted that Paul became a great spiritual leader when his heart and mind were captured by Jesus.12 Such statements could not have been if Paul had not made great achievements in the role God gave him to perform. Another writer, Ted E. Engstrom gave the background to Paul's success: "a Jew living in a Greek city, and with a Roman citizenship. Both by birth and training Paul possessed the tenacity of the Jews, the culture of the Greeks and the practicality of the Romans, and these qualities enabled him to adapt to the people among whom he was to move "13. According to Acts Chapter 9, when Paul encountered the Lord Jesus he was commissioned to take the gospel message to the gentiles. Records of Paul's accomplishments of his commission can be found in Acts Chapters 13-28. These included missionary journeys to gentile territories, Church planting, training or teaching ministries among the gentiles and successful debates with secular philosophers.

In addition Paul also wrote thirteen of the New Testament Epistles. In these epistles he dealt with important theological concepts like justification, sanctification and the resurrection of Christ. Various portions of defense of the Christian faith against secular philosophies are also included in these epistles. According to 2Tim. 4: 7, Paul was sure he accomplished God's mission for his life when he stated that he has fought the good fight, finished the race and kept the faith.

B. LEADERS WHO WERE MENTORED BY THEIR PREDECESSOR

The second categories of leaders to be examined are those who were mentored by their predecessor. Among such leaders are Joshua, who succeeded Moses and Samuel, who succeeded Eli. These two leaders will be examined individually in this section.

Joshua

a) His life history before his call to leadership

The Bible gave a brief family background of Joshua in Exodus 33:11; Num. 1:10. He was the son of Nun, the son of Elishama, head of the tribe of Ephraim. Apart from this background, there is no other information about him before he met Moses. The scriptures gave much focus to Joshua's mentoring relationship with Moses. This close working relationship between them can be traced in scripture.

According to exodus 24:13, when Moses went up Sinai to receive the two tablets for the first time Joshua accompanied him part of the way and was the first to meet him on his return (32:17). Also when the Israelites sinned by worshiping the golden calf, Moses moved the tabernacle outside the camp and left the congregation in charge of Joshua. In addition, Joshua was one of the twelve spies sent by Moses to explore the land of Canaan. It was only after about forty years of mentoring by Moses in the desert that God directed Moses to give Joshua leadership authority over the people.

In his book, 'Leadership Images from the New Testament', David Bennett mentioned four steps in developing a leader from the example of Jesus. These are:

a) To develop leaders who have learned to follow
b) To train within the context of personal apprenticeship.
c) To make commitment to the community as well as training for a task.
d) To stress on the spiritual aspects of leadership.14

These four steps can be found in the almost forty years mentoring relationship between Moses and Joshua. As Engstrom rightly puts it "Moses had the right attitude, when he knew it was time to train someone else for leadership. He was fearful of being a paternal leader and pleaded with God to give the Israelite a successor". 15 This might have been one of the reasons why he devoted himself to mentor Joshua.

b) His leadership role and achievements

Joshua's role was made clear to him when he was commissioned as the leader of Israel. His call and commission was mediated through Moses. In Numbers 27: 12-22 the Lord reminded Moses that he would not enter the promise Land and that Joshua would replace him. Moses obeyed the Lord's instructions and commissioned Joshua before the whole Israelite assembly. This commission kept Joshua in focus throughout his mission and he kept his faith in the one who called him. As Donald K. Campbell rightly observed, Joshua interceded for the nation when the Israelites sinned and were defeated.16 God's mandate was that Joshua would lead the Israelites to the Promise Land and he depended on him to accomplish that mandate. Commenting on the charge given to Joshua to be strong and courageous in Josh. 1: 6, Campbell also said it was an affirmation that God would not let Joshua down.17 However this may also be seen as an indication that prior to the time he became Israel's leader he had potentials, which he needed to build up in leadership .

Details of how Joshua accomplished his mission have been recorded in the book of Joshua. The conquest of Canaan was however not an easy one but Joshua's training as a military leader and his dependence upon God gave him added advantage. He made mistakes but he learned from his mistakes.

Samuel

a) His life history before his call to leadership

According to John C. Maxwell, Samuel was special from the time he was born because he was an answer to prayer. He further commented that, as young child, Samuel was placed in the care of Eli the High priest and Judge of Israel. 18 This revealed that the mentoring relationship between Eli and Samuel started quite early in Samuel's life. Like Joshua, Samuel stayed in the same place with his mentor. In addition, at a very early age, God began to speak directly to him and that motivated him to reverence and serve God faithfully. The role played by Hannah in initiating this mentoring relationship should not be overlooked. McChesney and Unger said that it was a vow that Hannah made to dedicate Samuel to the Lord as a Nazarite.19

b) His Leadership Role and Achievements

To better understand and appreciate Samuel's achievements, one should first examine the religious, political and social situations prior to his assumption to leadership. Eugene H, Merrill rightly observed that "the 300 or so years of the history of Israel under the Judges were marked by political, moral, and spiritual anarchy and deterioration". It was in this background, where all seemed to have failed that Samuel was groomed and also took up leadership.20

With reference to his achievements, "Samuel's level of influence with the people continued to increase throughout his lifetime. As a prophet, he was respected because he spoke from God. But in time Samuel also became Israeli Judge, a position similar to that of a king. He was the nation's civil and military leader. Samuel judged Israel all the days of his life ".21 Indeed, only leaders with certain qualities can achieve what Samuel achieved. It was that kind of excellent leadership that God was looking for in order to address the deteriorating situation in Israel. Israel enjoyed a time of peace during Samuel's reign.

C. LEADERS WHO ASSUME LEADERSHIP AS A RESULT OF A CRISIS

During the period between the death of Joshua and the start of Samuel's leadership, many people ruled Israel as Judges. All of them came to leadership as a result of a crisis need. Gideon and Samson were two of the Judges who ruled Israel at that time. They will be examined in this section, as representatives of the Judges, to determine whether they were prepared for their leadership roles.

Gideon

a) His life history before his call to leadership

In Judges chapter 6-8 the Bible gave a brief historic account of Gideon's family background. He was the son of Joash the Abiezrite. He was also of the tribe of Manasseh. One may want to suggest that Gideon had no quality or potential for leadership before he became a leader. This assumption is proved wrong in the light of the angel's greetings to Gideon – "mighty man of valor" (Judg. 6:12). As Joyce Peel rightly said, "the angel calls out his hidden qualities which we see developing in the rest of the story".

It can be seen that Gideon already had faith in God from a question he asked the angel – where are all the wonders that our fathers told us about when they said, "Did not the lord bring us up out of Egypt?" His parents have made him realize that in the past they have depended on God for survival. However, Gideon wanted an assurance that it was the God of his fathers talking to him, so he asked God to give him a sign (: 17). Joyce Peel's comment on Gideon's request is that "it isn't for the sort of sign an unbeliever asks to evade a challenge but for a sign to confirm to a believer who is ready to obey" .23 Gideon was convinced that God was speaking to him and based on that fact he responded to the call to meet the Midianite crisis.

b) His Leadership Role and Achievements

Gideon was called to perform a specific role and that was to deliver Israel from the Midianites. He had a clear vision in mind as to what he had to do. He also believed that he could accomplish his goal because he had the assurance of God. In addition he had inner qualities, which gave him enough courage to move into action, even though he started at night. Gideon delivered the Israelites from the Midianites' oppression but he first brought them back to faith in God. However, immediately after his death the people turned back to their foreign gods.

Samson

a) His life history before his call to leadership

In Judges Chapter 13-16 the Bible gave an account of Samson's life. Samson was the son of Manoah of Zorah and of the tribe of Dan. His birth was foretold to his parents by an angel. They were also told that he would be a Nazarite to God from the womb Iudg. 13: 2-5,24). The Bible also says in Judg 3: 24-25 that God blessed him and that the spirit of God began to stir him up while he was in Mahaneh Dan. From this account it can be observed that Samson was a man of unusual strength. In Hebrews 11:32 he was recognized as of the great men of faith. During Samson's time the philistines were suppressing the Israelites.

b) His leadership role and achievements

Samson's call and commission was mediated through his parents. According to Judges 13: 5 he was to start the deliverance of Israel from the hands of the philistines. As John Mazwell rightly points out, "despite his good start, Samson got himself into trouble many times, and in the end he finished poorly: he was weak, blind and enslaved by the enemy from whom he was supposed to deliver his people." 24 Samson had the opportunity of becoming a great leader but his despicable character destroyed his leadership.

Conclusion

Three categories of leaders have been examined in this chapter to prove that the people that God called to leadership in the Bible were always prepared for their tasks. The first category of leaders were those whose call came as a surprise to them. The second were those who were mentored by their predecessor and the third, were those who responded to a crisis. It was proved that all of these leaders had some form of preparation necessary for their particular calling. These preparations may come from God, their parents, religious background, formal education or a mentor. Therefore one could conclude that God does not call any person to leadership who had not been prepared. God's call or one preparation does not guarantee success because the preparation for effective leadership does not end with one's call.

A correct money management is the key towards being a successful soccer betting expert. One of the tactics recommended by the best websites in the world of betting predictions football has inspired, is to split the amount of money available for betting into smaller portions, approximately 10-15 parts, and bet these smaller shares instead. This technique has turned into a general rule for all the large betting pros and is becoming a sure way to bet and win.

Secondly, and what many consider to be the most important rule, choose a great and reliable website that offers a constant flow of soccer betting tips and predictions about all the games you are interested in. With new predictions being posted every single day, you can find out the most recent news or odds in real time, so that your betting chances are at their maximum. Whether you want to find out the odds for the UEFA Champions League or know the Europa League preview, you can learn anything from specialized online platforms for betting tips. All of the professional punters take their predictions from experts in the field, so why shouldn’t you?

Thirdly, forget all of the preconceptions linked to sports betting, if you want to have a truly successful and profitable betting experience. What people generally perceive as betting advice sources, like sports news and simple rumors are nothing but small guidelines that may or may not turn into reality. The real source of accurate football predictions can only come from a more statistical research into the evolution of the teams and the composition of their players. But if statistics and results seem hard to interpret or figure out, then there is always the saving option of reading those stats in their interpreted source on the above mentioned professional websites. The only trick is to forget your previous judgments about a team’s winning force in the past and trust what the specialists have to say about it today based on statistical data.

Last, but not least, always bet on the championship you know best or have the highest amount of information about. Soccer betting online relies on knowing a bundle of facts about the games and odds of the teams playing, so it is best that you are well informed prior to placing your bet. However, if you resort to a professional betting website then they also offer extensive details and explain their predictions, so you do not need to make the research on your own. Some punters say they never bet on friendly games, because they are full of surprises, so stick to the major games from the major leagues to be surer.

FC Barcelona Players – Alexander Hleb

Alexander Hleb is, of course, well-known amongst UK football followers because of his time at Arsenal, during which time Sky pundit Andy Gray described him as one of the Premier league's 'most skillful players'. Born in Minsk in Belarus in 1981, Hleb, whose brother is also an international footballer, initially made his name in the Bundesliga with FC Stuttgart, whom he joined from his first club, FC Bate Borisov, at the age of nineteen, with whom he had just won the Belarus national league. Arsenal were signing a player who had already made 172 first team appearances for Stuttgart, scoring 19 goals in total.

By the time Hleb joined Arsenal in 2005 he had already been voted Belarusian player of the year three times – he has added two more awards since then – and he became respected at Arsenal because of his versatility, energy and ability to fit into the team's smooth passing style of play. In his first season in North London, Hleb started 40 league games and scored 3 goals – figures that he repeated the following season.

It was during season 2007/08 that rumors started to link Hleb with a move to Barcelona; stories that gathered momentum after a particularly impressive performance against AC Milan in the Champions' League. The 'will he, won't he' saga kept the press occupied until July when the player signed for Barca in a deal reported to be worth about £ 11.8 million. During his time at Arsenal, Hleb made a total of 130 appearances, scoring 11 goals.

Alexander Hleb hardly made the most promising start to his career with his new club – picking up a series of injuries during pre-season which disrupted his progress considerably. Towards the end of the year, however, he was beginning to become a regular in the squad and to show signs of being able to integrate with the nimble, quick passing midfielders already at the club.

Internationally, Hleb made his debut appearance as a substitute in a defeat against Wales in 2001. His full debut followed, along with his first international goal, against Hungary the following April and he has been a regular in the team since then – captaining the side since August, 2007.

It is easy to see why Barcelona signed Alexander Hleb; he fits into their mold of being skillful, adaptable and pacy – with the ability to chip in with the occasional goal and, overall, an acute positional sense and an awareness of the runs of forward players. He should make a valuable addition to the squad – and his wife certainly should make an impact on the local media; in August, 2008 Alexander married Anastasia, a Topless singer. To be precise, Anastasia Kosenkova was a member of the Belarusian girl band, Topless.
