Zlatan Ibrahimovich – The Perfect Striker

There are times when you need that flamboyant man up front! The kind who takes the ball, runs at defenders, makes space and scores. Then there are times when you are a team like Barcelona, who come forward in hordes.

With the likes of Messi and, now, David Villa in attack, the role of the central man becomes different. He is no longer required to beat opponents, just bringing the others into the game is enough. So why did we pick Zlatan Ibrahimovich as the core player for this article?

You’ll find out!

THE DIRECT PLAY

In England, football isn’t about finesse and beauty, unless you are Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspurs or Arsenal. Even in these teams, only Chelsea is the one that actually uses the direct route. Manchester United can also join the club at times.

The idea is simple! Boot the ball up the field, towards your target man, hope that he gets to it before the defenders, and hope that he can hold on long enough to allow the others to come forward. This is an effective strategy when you are under pressure, or up against a stronger team. However, in England, this seems to be the strategy of choice.

The problem comes when you are playing with strikers like Jermaine Defoe, Wayne Rooney or even Fernando Torres.

None of these strikers have what it takes to play the target man. Sure, they are all capable of being the «go to» guy when it comes to scoring chances. In build-up play however, they aren’t what you would want. As a coach, a Wayne Rooney running at defences isn’t as important as a Peter Crouch or Emile Heskey who can, somewhat, hold up the ball.

The fact that they play for teams that require them to do so also helps.

WHEN TO HOLD UP

Usually, when weaker teams play, they are more or less under pressure for a majority of the game. This means that when they do get possession, they need to make the most of it. Attacking on the counter is good, but unless you have players who can get up the pitch quick enough, counters are worthless.

Clearing the ball out of danger, up the pitch, can get your striker into play! With little support upon receiving the ball, the striker has no choice but to either run at defenders, or hold his position for support.

The former, more often than not, leads to loss of possession!

So, holding up the ball means that those midfielders get that extra bit of time to come up and take the ball off. This can not only lead to a quick counter, but can also allow numbers to pile up, resulting in possession play at the other end of the pitch.

Besides the obvious counter attack, strikers will need to hold onto the ball when midfielders are struggling to make space. Passing the ball ahead, to the target man, brings the defenders up in the hope of winning the ball. If the striker can hold onto the ball, defenders will be drawn out, bringing the entire line higher up on the pitch.

This means that midfielders, or other strikers, get that time to pick out spaces in a moving defence. Through balls or simple layoffs to the back, are ideal for relieving the pressure and creating opportunities.

WHY ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVICH

Think about it, what does the target man need? Power? Finishing ability? Strength on the ball? Ability to win common balls?

Yes, all of the above! What Ibrahimovich has, is all that and more!

Excellent ball control, the ability to beat defenders on one-on-ones, and even one-on-twos at times, the skill to thread that perfect pass, the vision to pick out that wonderful run – He has a lot more to offer for sure!

Then why did he have a dismal season at Barcelona?

Well, he didn’t!!! Here’s why!

In 2009-10, Ibrahimovich started 23 games for Barcelona in the League, 9 in the UEFA Champions League and 1 in the Spanish Cup. He came on as a substitute 6 times in the league, and once each in the other two formats. He was taken off in just 7 games in the league, 4 in the UEFA Champions League and also in the only game he started, in the Spanish Cup.

Guardiola persisted with Ibrahimovich despite the Swede scoring just 16 goals in the League, 4 in the UEFA Champions and one in the Spanish Cup. Not the 30 goal striker but a decent 19 goal tally. Is that enough for a player like Ibra?

SUPPORTING ROLE STATS

In the League, Ibrahimovich created 30 goals, 7 of which were when he came on as a substitute. This tally is an incredible 12 in 9 UEFA Champions League games and 1 in the Spanish Cup start that he made. He earned a penalty in the league and won the ball 20 times, with 4 more occasions in Europe.

To put things into perspective, we compared him with another top European striker, Wayne Rooney. Here is what we got!

Wayne Rooney scored 26 goals in 32 league games – more than Ibrahimovich! He scored 2 in the Carling Cup, 5 in the UEFA Champions League – both more than Ibrahimovich! Here is the clincher, however – Rooney had just 7 assists, in ALL competitions, for Manchester United and England (This includes all qualifying and FIFA World Cup games as well). That figure is less than Zlatan’s figures for the UEFA Champions League alone.

Both played as lone strikers up front, in teams with two distinct styles of attacking football. Rooney had 90 shots on goal compared to Ibra’s 94, but that can also be attributed to Barcelona’s playing style.

VERDICT ON COMPARISON

Wayne Rooney was playing with a team that doesn’t pass or hold the ball like Barcelona does. However, it has to be said that Ibrahimovich, despite playing in a team like Barcelona, had a role unlike most central strikers do. At least for Barcelona i.e.!

Guardiola played Ibrahimovich as a target man, who would hold up the ball, pass it around, help keep possession and even score the odd goal every now and then. Ibrahimovich earned a lot of flak for his inability to score and for giving the ball away. However, 43 assists from a target man, in one season of football, is an extraordinary number by any means!

Yes, the fact that he plays for Barcelona means that more passes turn into assists! It also, however, shows that when Ibrahimovich played for Malmo FF, Ajax, Juventus and Inter Milan, in a regular striker’s role, he was prolific! In his 12 year career, Ibrahimovich has had just 4 occasions when he’s ended in single-figure digits, in his league goals column. Two of them were for Malmo, when he played just 6 games in his debut season and 8 in his third season with the team.

His settling down season with Ajax saw him score just 6 while his final season at Juventus saw him score just 7. Besides that, Ibrahimovich has played the supporting striker role to perfection.

WHAT HE GIVES TO THE ROLE

For Ibrahimovich, it is more than just about playing as the support-striker. His goals, in any shirt, have brought people to their feet with mouths wide open. He shoots with incredible power, scoring from unimaginable angles and with spectacular precision. His dribbling goes against all logic. For a striker who’s 6’4″, twisting and turning should be difficult – or so physics says!

Ibrahimovich is a master at dribbling. His close control is immaculate and he has the tendency to humiliate defenders. Add to that a blistering burst of speed and you have the perfect attacking striker.

However, that is not all the Ibrahimovich is about. So many times, we see him run through more than one defender, sometimes even three, holding them off with sheer power. The fact that he can ease the ball past players, and not go down easily, means that he, more often than not, gets back onto the ball!

With his back to goal, Ibrahimovich is a bag of surprises.

First off, his height, agility and control allows him to get to balls, and hold them, that others couldn’t imagine. His skills baffle defenders and when he has his back to you, there is no telling what’s coming next.

He can thread a delightful pass; turn & run into space; lay it off for an oncoming teammate; hold possession; whiz past the defender with a fantastic turn followed by a burst of speed, or simply turn and slot the ball into any corner of the net with power or precision or both!

If that isn’t mind-blowing, what is? With Barcelona, Ibrahimovich has set up teammates more often than tried for goal himself. Guardiola has milked his height and strength to the limit. The fact that the Barcelona coach wasn’t willing to let Ibrahimovich go is a sign that he plans for more of the same in 2010-11.

THE CURRENT TEAM

Thierry Henry was no David Villa in his time! In 2009-10, Henry had to play on the left, when Pedro wasn’t used. However, Henry was merely a replacement, a backup – not first choice. Way past his prime, Henry was second fiddle to Ibra or Pedro, as Guardiola wanted. The fact that he played Henry so often is more out of compulsion than choice.

Now, with Lionel Messi on the right and David Villa on the left, Ibrahimovich will be more valuable down the middle. Throughout the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Villa showed what he can do wide out on the left, cutting in. Messi has already shown that for the right side of the field.

Ibrahimovich did, what he did in 2009-10, with Pedro on one side. Imagine the havoc he will wreak when Pedro is replaced by Villa! Like we, at Cleat Beat, like to say, «it ain’t ‘magic’ until its ‘Ibrahi-magic'»! Not cool enough, but could work!!!

Learn Things That Impress Girls and Improve Your Game

You may think that a fat wallet and movie star good looks are what it takes to impress women. They are not. I am not saying they would not be on the list, but they are not near the top. Having a little bit of «game» and a lot of positive attitude will impress women far more than simple looks or money.

You may think it is difficult to do have a good «game» with women. It is not!!!

All you have to do is find out the things that impress girls add what you can to your arsenal and you will find you will be quite attractive to females.

The Things that Really Impress the Girls

Things that impress girls are things that they are not used to.

An old standby is chivalry.

Many guys think that women do not appreciate it these days. That is wrong. The less that guys have chivalry in their tool bag of attraction techniques and «game» the more women come to appreciate those guys that do have it.

Pull out her chair for her and open doors. Be a gentleman, act confident and in control. At the same time you also want to portray a certain air of casualness and aloofness.

This is not to say you should act like her slave to be at her beck and call. The amount you want to vary between these too depend on the girl. It is sort of like the old trope. «Treat a princess like a hooker and a hooker like a princess».

You should never do either of these to the extreme, but if the girl seems like she is used to being fawned over and pampered, act even more casual and aloof. If it seems that it has been a long time since she has had a man treat her like a princess lean more toward trying to treat her as if she is the most special thing in the world.

How to Improve your Game with Girls

One way to impress women and improve your game with girls is to have some skills that set you apart from the, «average guy». There are generally a few skills that will impress a woman.

Cook her dinner. This is always a good one. Every man need to have 1-2 really good recipes in his arsenal.

If you have a rare skill, without bragging you can casually show her. Playing the piano or guitar, being a good illusionist, having an excellent singing voice, all of these can work wonders. Do not force it, though, doing a excerpt from Lady Gaga’s «Alejandro» while passing gas, might thrill your buddies, but most women might not find it arousing.

Improving your game with women is all about creating a connection. You want to casually show her that you are different and perhaps even «better» than all the other guys she has dated. Whether you do this by using an old skill like chivalry, that many guys have abandoned or making sure she sees one of your unique talents, it is important to give her something upfront that shows you are a high status guy.

A high status guy is far more impressive to women than a little bit of money or good looks.

John Mervin: Risingsun, Ohio Pioneer

JOHN MERVIN, one of the early settlers at the site of the present town of Risingsun, is a highly respected resident of that place. Like many of the prosperous and influential men of the day, he has made his way to success through adverse circumstances, and his well-won competence determined credit upon him.

He is of English birth, having entered upon his mortal career in Leicestershire, January 11, 1824. His father, Thomas Mervin, was a butcher by trade. Our subject was reared upon a farm, near a small village, enjoying only the limited advantages of the common schools. He showed ability in the management and care of horses, and at an early age found employment in that work; but the opportunities for advancement seemed to him discouraging, and he determined to come to America. Leaving his young wife, formerly Miss Elizabeth Riley, he sailed from Liverpool, in April, 1849, in the ship "Joseph Badger," and after a voyage of four weeks landed in New York. The trip to Albany was made by river, from Albany to Buffalo by rail, and from Buffalo he came by lake to Sandusky, where he took the Mad River railroad, then the only one in this region. His destination was Avon township, Lorain county, but by mistake he went to New Haven, Huron county. On learning his error he started on foot for Lorain county, but while en route he was taken very ill in Greenfield township, Huron county, and was cared for by some friendly English people. On his recovery he had but fifty cents left of the sum which he had saved from his earnings for his journey, and a new start in life. This money was spent for wine to stimulate his impaired energies, and instead of going on, he decided to remain there and rent a farm.

In the spring of 1850 his wife rejoined him. She had a difficult voyage, spending four months on the way, and being shipwrecked three times. They lived there for several years, renting different farms in the locality, but in the fall of 1863 they came to Wood county, driving through in a wagon. Mr. Mervin purchased sixty acres of land in Section 36, Montgomery township, where the village of Risingsun now stands. At that time the land was partially improved in the dry portion and a plank house stood near his present home. The swamply part of the farm had to be cleared, however, and there was no small amount of hard work to be done in the first years of his stay; but the rapid development of the locality brought prosperity. He still owns severnty acres of land in the vicinity, and also has ten acres in Jackson township, Seneca county. In 1877 he built a fine residence in Risingsun, which he has since occupied. Mrs. Mervin's death, December 9, 1888, brought deep sorrow to this pleasant home. her remains are interred in Trinity cemetery, Scott township, Sandusky county. They had nine children, all of whom are living: Sarah, Mrs. George Young, of Seneca county; Mary, Mrs. Adam Graber, of Risingsun; George, a farmer in Perry township; Elizabeth, Mrs. Frank Blonde, of Perry township; Eliza and Lucy, who are at home; Frances, Mrs. Benjamin Bates, of Risingsun; Anna, Mrs. Courtland Essex, of the same town, and Hattie, Mrs. Russell Hoover [my great grandmother], of Montgomery township.

Mr. Mervin's parents came to the United States in 1855 or '56, and located in Greenwich township, Huron county, where his father died at the age of seventy-three years. His mother afterward made her home in Wood county with her children, but died in Richland county at ninety years of age. Mr. Mervin is the eldest of six children, all living. Thomas resides in Risingsun; George, in Longley; Elizabeth is the widow of James Brinson, of Huron county; Hannah married John Thompson, of Richland county, and Emma married first the late John Jenney, and second John Winder, of New Orleans, Louisiana.

Mr. Mervin possessed in youth a powerful physique, and is still well-preserved, his strictly temperate habits being in his favor. Fond of reading, he has intelligent views on the questions of the time, and his interest in the education of the rising generation has led to several years of able service as school director. In Principle he is a Democrat, but is not bound by partisan ties in the choice of suitable men for local offices. He is a leading member of the ME Church.

How Proper Eye Care Can Help Save You Money

Saving money is on everyone’s mind in these uncertain economic times. There are various areas where small changes can mean real savings ­­– carpooling to work, bringing a bagged lunch and a brewed cup of coffee from home as opposed to going out. But when saving a few dollars comes at the expense of your health, the long-term risks far exceed any short-term benefits. This is the case with contact lenses.

Although wearing your contact lenses for longer than your prescription allows may seem like an easy way to save some money, it can have detrimental effects on ocular health.

Contact lenses are a medical device and should be treated as such, in accordance with the recommendations of your eye care practitioner. Wearing contact lenses for too long can lead to abnormal blood vessel growth on the cornea; epithelial microcysts; thinning of the cornea; and reduced corneal sensitivity.

Eye problems caused by contact lens overwear are generally due to a decrease in oxygen transmitted to the eye. Oxygen is essential to the health of the cornea. When the eye is not absorbing enough oxygen through the contact lens, hypoxic conditions ensue. Hypoxia can lead to serious infections, including microbial keratitis, a painful and potentially sight-threatening corneal infection.

Eye infections and other problems that arise from improper contact lens care can be very costly – medical expenses and lost days of work, not to mention the inconvenience and impact on quality of life of vision problems. In 1990, researchers estimated that the cost of blindness and visual impairment to the federal budget of the United States was approximately $4 billion.

Risks and best practices

Contact lenses have been around for more than 100 years and though significant advances have been made in that time, the risks and side effects associated with wear remain a reality.

A contact lens is a foreign object to the eye. If the lens does not fit properly or is not properly cared for, it can adversely affect vision and the eye itself.

The most common problems associated with contact lens wear are excess tearing, itching or burning, dryness, sensitivity to light, and distorted vision. All of these symptoms can be worsened by improper lens care, which includes wearing lenses too long.

On occasion, a contact lens wearer will wear their lenses until their vision becomes blurred or distorted, and may not realize that this behavior can cause permanent, irreversible damage to the cornea, the front covering of the eye which provides about two-thirds of the eye’s focusing power.

When contact lens wearers disregard their cleaning and lens replacement schedules, the ability of their contact lens to transmit oxygen to the cornea decreases, and deposits build up on the lens surface and within the lens material itself.

The continued wear of lenses with protein deposits can lead to infections, giant papillary conjunctivitis, and potentially serious long-term hypoxic changes such as myopia creep, corneal thinning, and chronic low-grade corneal edema.

Cutting corners with contact lens care can result in temporary, and in some cases, permanent eye damage. However, contact lens wearers who properly maintain and care for their lenses are benefited greatly by it.

Although there are several types of contact lenses that are approved for continuous wear for up to 30 days, this schedule is not appropriate for everyone. Wearing lenses at night reduces the amount of oxygen that is transmitted to the cornea. This reduction in oxygen absorption can damage the surface of the cornea, allowing germs and bacteria to grow more rapidly.

Every person’s eyes are different and respond differently to contact lenses. It is important to discuss a schedule that best suits your individual needs with your eye care practitioner.

Is Safe Dieting Really Safe With the Use of Diet Pills?

It is not uncommon for many of us to begin a diet program without conferring with a dietitian or physician discussing the desired outcome and planning the necessary steps to reach the goal. The school of thought is that any diet program that will help shed pounds is a good one. However, the wrong plan can end up causing more harm than good. According to some recent studies, dieters who take on a particular plan or decide to take non-prescription diet pills that may not be a good match for them run the risk of suffering complications. In order to avoid these types of problems, it is important to be cautious when deciding on a weight loss program, or deciding whether or not to take diet pills.

Always try to consult a physician or licensed dietitian before starting any weight loss program. And rather than using over the counter diet pills, it is much better to use prescription pills under the direction of your physician. Remember, the aim with any weight loss plan should include improved health. Whenever you begin a diet, remember to keep the goal of a healthy body in mind in order to avoid serious problems down the road.

Why Are Prescription Diet Pills Different?

It is important to understand that prescription pills, unlike those purchased over-the-counter, are regulated medications that require a physician’s prescription. There are strict regulations on dispensing these drugs, and medical professionals may only prescribe diet drugs under specific conditions and when the patient’s life is not threatened. These pills are prescribed only when the dieter meets specific criteria. Some prescription diet pills can interfere with or even reduce the efficacy of other medications, and the physician needs to determine if the medications the dieter is currently taking can be sabotaged by adding diet medications.

Safety and Efficacy

Before they can be FDA approved, prescription diet pills go through intensive laboratory testing programs to be sure they are safe when taken as directed. Because of this thorough testing procedures and research, these drugs have been found to be effective when combined with a sensible diet and moderate exercise.

Many dieters have had excellent results using these pills together with a proper diet and exercise over a predetermined period of time. Still, like all medications available today, they can cause side effects in some people, which makes supervision from your physician that much more important.

Famous Soccer Players From Spain

Spain is under the lime light having won the two most prestigious tournaments that the world of soccer has to offer; the Euro 2008 and the World Cup 2010. Having won both competitions here is a look at two of their prized strikers who are indeed very famous in their own respect.

The first of these two players is Spain’s striker Fernando Torres. His full name is Fernando Jose Torres Sanz and he has a nickname which is El Nino. The reason for this nickname is that Torres is very young and looks even younger. He was born on the 20th of March 1984 in Fuenlabrada in the Community of Madrid and began playing football at the age of five. By the age of eleven he was scouted by his first official league team Atletico Madrid in 1995. He started off playing in the youth team and worked his way up and won his first youth title in 1998. He was also part of the under 15 teams that Madrid sent to the Nike Cup which had the resulted with them winning the tournament and later on Torres was voted the best player in Europe for his age group. The next year in 1999 he signed his first professional contract with Atletico.

In 2007 he had signed a six years contract with Liverpool for £20 million which was the highest transfer fee in liverpool’s history. Whilst at Liverpool Torres made 102 appearances and had scored 65 goals. He also became the fastest player for Liverpool to score 50 goals. In 2011 Torres had signed a contract with Chelsea for £50 million making him the most expensive Spanish player and it was also the most expensive British transfer and it also made him the fourth most expensive player in history.

The second famous player for Spain is David Villa. His full name is David Villa Sanchez and he is nicknamed El Guaje which means kid in Austrias. He was born in Tuilla, a small village in Asturias, a region in northern Spain. He started his football career rather later due to a serious injury at the age of four when he suffered a fracture to his right femur, but he made a complete recovery.

He made his first official debut aged 19 with his local club Sporting Gijon in 2001 where he made 80 appearances and had scored 38 goals. In 2003 he was signed for 3 million Euros by Real Zaragoza. He was with this club from 2003 up to 2005 during which he made 73 appearances and scored 32 goals. In 2005 Villa made a move to one of Spain’s heavy weight clubs which was Valencia for 12 million Euros. He was there from 2005 to 2010 during this time he had made 166 appearances and scored 108 goals. He was also the top goal scorer for he Euro 2008 tournament one which Spain went on to win. In 2010 Villa made his most expensive transfer to Barcelona for a fee of 40 million Euros and is still currently there. So far he has made 22 appearances and scored 15 goals.

Well there are two famous Spanish players I’m sure there are many more that I have missed out but those two are most commonly known and related to Spain.

Oswestry Town FC

Oswestry has been a home for football for as long as anyone can remember, in fact there are no official records relating to when the team was formed but it is a common perception that Oswestry FC would have been one of the first football teams formed in the world … maybe even the first. Originally born as Oswestry United, friendly matches were played on the local cricket pitch against local teams such as Chirk, Ruabon and the Druids, all of which are from the surrounding areas of Wrexham in North Wales. Oswestry United was a founder member, along with Ruabon, Chirk and Druids of a league which covered North Wales and the Northern west of England known as "The combination".

In 1876, Oswestry became a founder member of the Football Association of Wales, subsequently entering the first ever Welsh cup the following season. Following the war, the team was renamed to Oswestry Town and they began competing in the Welsh Alliance league Oswestry Town would later move to face different competition in the Birmingham league having been crowned champions of the Welsh Alliance in 1924 and desiring new challenges which came in the face of renowned teams such as Telford United, Shrewbury Town and Kidderminster Harriers.

Spells in the Cheshire League, the Southern Premier League and the Northern Premier League would follow put over time Oswestry Town began to struggle both on the pitch and off the pitch as the finances became strained and debt mounted This resulted in the sad sale of their long time home, the Victoria Road Ground and a period where football in Oswestry was suspended, possibly for the long term. Eventually fortunes began to upturn with the use of the Park Hall site situated on the outskirts of the town. Park Hall was an army built facility that already hosted many different sports in the area including Rugby Union and horse riding.

During the clubs stagnant years the face of football had changed with the introduction of a national league of Wales. As mentioned earlier Oswestry Town had been founder members of the Welsh Football Association and so had the right to play within it's league's. Oswestry Town recommenced their football by entering the Welsh Nation League (Wrexham area) and began to clime the pyramid system of welsh football Leagues. Upon reaching the Cymru Alliance league which is one of two feeder leagues to the League of Wales. Oswestry Town won a League and Cup double at the first time of asking. However, sadly they were denied their chance of life in the top tier of Welsh football due to the Park Hall ground not meeting strict stadium requirements of the league. After much fundraising and donations the club were able to raise money to purchase floodlights which brought the ground up to the correct standard and another successful Cymru Alliance season in 1999/2000 was met with further financial difficulties which again prevented the move to the League of Wales . This time the financial difficulties were too severe for the club to overcome and Oswestry Town have now played their last match. Football in Oswestry continues, at Park Hall due to the relocation of The New Saints who were previously based in nearby Lantsantfraid.

Arsenal’s Realistic Chances This Season (2010/2011)

I am happy about the current form of my gunners. But I hope they just take a bit of precaution at the moment. We have not really lost since the beginning of the new year and there are indications that we have just an opportunity to get our hands on the first major trophy since the last five years. But Arsene Wenger’s hope of running for the four possible titles is not just so real.

Considering that the boys are just coming of age and there are likely to be injuries and fatigue it is very good that he show concerns about this. Playing the boys three times a week would wear them off. Just recently Samir Nasri who happens to be the most promising this season is suffering from hamstring injuries. Even if he believes that this is the best gunners in so many years, caution has to be taken.

Arsenal remain in the Champions League where there is little hope of any success since they will be playing the best team in Europe, I will not try to be so optimistic about our chances like we had it during the 2007/08 season where we beat the best then, that is, AC Milan. We knew the consequence of winning that game. We lost our lead in the premiership and we were knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester United before that remarkable win.

We went ahead and lost in the quarter-final to Liverpool who know how to gamble with matches sacrificing the premiership trophy for the Champions league. Our realistic chances this season are the Carling Cup and the Premiership. As we trail behind Man. Utd by five (5) points, it will do us good if we just play Barcelona with the mind that we have lost (though we can give them a good fight), and hope that in the home and away games between Man. Utd and Chelsea they (Man.Utd) can drop six points and hopefully we win our return leg against them.

I still know that Alex Ferguson will not like to repeat the same mistake as last season. We better play with serious caution as there are likely to be more injuries and little recovery time. We still have 14 games as at the time of writing this report and our attack force is about the best in the premiership and we can believe that our boys will always be used to winning and the winning spirit will continue to the end of the season. I believe Arsene as a great and experience coach will have some of his advisers telling him the same or similar news!

Gunners 4 Life.
