Gordon McQueen – The Manchester United Giant

The enmity between Manchester United and Leeds United may very well originate from the War of the Roses, but in soccer terms the Roses rivalry started back in the swinging sixties 1960 when Leeds United were led by Don Revie and Manchester United by Sir Matt Busby.

Kilbirnie born Gordon McQueen began his soccer career at St. Kilbirnie. Mirren who signed him as a 18 year old. Impressed by the hard working youngster, Leeds United manager Don Revie eventually lured him to the high flying Yorkshire club for £ 30,000 in 1973. The Scottish stopper quickly managed to establish himself in the first team at Elland Road and he was a regular member of the vastly talented Leeds United side that went on to win the League Championship in 1974. However, following Revie's departure to manage the England team, Leeds were declining and hatred between the Elland Road players started to bubble over.

Brought to Manchester Utd by new manager Dave Sexton for £ 495,000 in February 1978, the Scotland international became one of the first well known Leeds United players to sign for the Lancashire club. At Old Trafford, Gordon McQueen linked up with former Elland Road team mate Joe Jordan who had made the switch from Leeds United to Manchester United only a few weeks before. Evidently, Leeds United selling two of their biggest stars to old rivals Manchester United did not go down well with the Elland Road faithful. Incurring the wrath of the Leeds supporters, the two players were targeted with booing every time they were appearing against their old club.

While at Old Trafford, Gordon McQueen helped Manchester Utd win the FA Cup final in 1983 after a replay against Brighton and Hove Albion. A rough and rugged player, McQueen went on to make a total of 184 first class appearances for the Reds. The blond giant stayed at United until 1985 when he finally announced his retirement from the game because of persistent injuries.

Eventually going into soccer management, he took over the helm at Scottish club Airdrieoninans in 1987. Known for his brilliance in the air, Gordon McQueen won 30 full caps for his native country after making his first appearance for Scotland against Belgium in 1974.

"But Manchester United are Manchester United. They are the bigger of the two clubs, and always will be. Even going from a place like Leeds, with all their household names, you noticed a huge difference. Manchester United weren't the best, but they were the biggest. " Gordon McQueen quote.

Ed Hardy Flats – Super Stylish Ballet Flats For Women

In the fashion world, 2009 could easily be called, «The year of Ed Hardy»!  Ed Hardy Flats are no exception to this – they now are available in several different styles.  As long as you love the bold fashionable looks offered with this brand, there is likely one of these that you will love:

Chelsea – These flats have a quilted patent faux leather upper, each color having a distinctly different selection from the Ed Hardy prints.  Not only are the prints bold and gorgeous, there is a shimmery toe cap on the front of the shoe as well as a shimmering strip on the heel to truly set off the colors on the remaining part of the shoe.   Lovely!

Twisty – These have a similar general look to the Chelsea, however the toe cap is made from a solid color suede rather than a shimmering fabric.  The «Ed Hardy» logo is across the right side of the toe cap.  These flats have a more feminine appearance being closer to a pastel general shade and a fun bow tie on the outside-front of the shoe.  Even though these are a bit more feminine than the style above, there is absolutely no lack of bold patterns and style.

Sin City – Rather than having prints to set this style apart, these shoes feature bold silver studs on the left and right sides.  Colors are solid – there are some gorgeous bright shades to choose from as well as solid black.  The famous signature logo is printed on the sides of the shoe in the front.

Eye Candy – These truly live up to their name in terms of appearance!  They are absolutely gorgeous and are available in several colors and prints.  Suede toe cap with signature on the side – very colorful with bold and striking patterns.  However – from the reviews I have seen with these shoes there is a problem with the back of the shoe rubbing and being less than comfortable and more difficult to wear than the other shoes listed above.

There may be other Ed Hardy Flats in the months to come, but these four styles are perfect for ladies who love a style that could be said to be «out of the fringe»!

Improve Your Fastball by Throwing Slower

If you have a good fast ball, by that I mean you can throw it consistently for strikes with some velocity; it's time to add another pitch. The Change Up is the pitch. The Change Up, once mastered, will make your fastball seem faster, give you an edge that every pitcher is looking for, and give you two pitches that are the only two pitches a young pitcher needs on the mound.

The change up is a fairly simple pitch to learn but must be thrown regularly by most pitchers in order to learn how to control it. The thought behind a Change-up is that it is just that, a change of pace. After you have established your fast ball, you throw the batter a pitch that looks like it's a fastball but travels much slower. A batter looking for a fastball starts his swing earlier and will generally miss or be out in front and pull a well thrown Change Up. Your give the batter something else to worry about by adding this pitch to your arsenal. The more pitches you have command of the more of an edge you have on the mound. When a pitcher throws a change-up he does so with the same motion as he throws the fastball with.

The following pitches offer a good place to start for pitchers whether rookies or they have some innings over their belt.

Circle Change

A Circle Change is called that due to the grip a pitcher uses to hold the ball. The thumb and index finger come together and form a circle. The ball is gripped with the reaming three fingers and held slightly further back off the fingers than with the fast ball.

When throwing the circle change a pitcher uses the same arm motion and speed that they do when throwing the fastball. The grip is different and since it sits back in the hand a pitcher cannot get the same velocity on the ball. A well thrown Circle Change will come down and into right handed batters.

The Palm Ball

The Palm Ball is a pitch that as the name indicated is thrown with the palm of the hand. The pitch can be a more difficult pitch to throw for some pitchers. All four fingers rest on top of the ball across as with the four seam fast ball grip. The thumb is placed on the ball like a fast ball. The ball is held deep in the palm the hand. When delivering the Palm Ball a pitcher again uses the same motion as he does on the fast ball.

Another variation that is hard to master and can be called by different names calls for a pitcher to balance the ball between the thumb and pinkie, both digits are on opposing sides of the ball. The remaining middle three rest on top of the ball. It is best thrown with a stiffer wrist. Again it is hard to throw. One who masters this adds a nice pitch to their arsenal.

The Three Finger

A simple change up to learn. The first three fingers rest across the top of the ball, the thumb to the side. Again the pitcher throws the ball as he would a fast ball. Sometimes simple is best and this pitch is easier to throw for pitchers that have smaller hands.

There are many ways to throw a change-up. The trick is to try different grips until you find one that works for you. Try experimenting with the way you grip the ball across the seams. When thrown correctly you change the way the ball comes across the plate. Remember the following when practicing your Change up:

  • Know that you are throwing the pitch to catch the batter off balance.
  • Throw the ball with the same arm motion as your fastball
  • Experiment with grips until you find the one that is right for you.
  • Practice throwing it regularly.
  • A good Change Up improves your fast ball.

The Change Up is thrown to keep the batter off balance. A well thrown change up can be more devastating than a great fastball. I have seen pitchers throw their change up and mess up the swings of some of the best batters. You have to throw regularly to improve. Master the Change Up and you just improved your fastball by learning a slower pitch.

Stansted Airport London – An Independent Travellers Guide

Of London’s airports, Stansted Airport is furthest from the centre of London, nearly 40 miles. The airport is dominated by low cost budget airlines and in particular Ryanair and easyJet, Europe’s largest low cost airlines.

The overwhelming majority of flights are European or UK domestic flights.

The airport also has significant charter traffic, particularly for the British travelling on package tours to the sun.

The main intercontinental and state carriers like British Airways, Virgin, American and Singapore Airlines all use London’s Heathrow or Gatwick Airports.

The airport is an established airport but was relaunched 15 years ago with a brand new terminal and infrastructure, including a direct rail link and motorway to London. At first it was a white elephant but the emergence of the low cost budget carriers has transformed Stansted into one of the fastest growing airports in Europe in the last decade.

Today, full capacity of the main terminal is within sight and a new terminal and further out a second runway is planned.

There are no surprises with the terminal itself, all the standard facilities are in place including choice of foreign exchange, pharmacies, news stands etc. There is a good range of eating opportunities ranging from fast food and pub food through to sit down restaurants. In common with all airports run by BAA, the owner, there is a lot of luxury shopping outlets. But remember, the vast majority of flights from Stansted are within the EEC and do not qualify for duty free status.

It normally takes around 30 minutes from touch down to exiting customs with most flights if you have luggage. There is an airport information desk immediately outside customs and a desk for AirportCarz who have a monopoly on taxi services at the airport. Taking a taxi to London is only used by a very small minority of passengers because of the distance and expense.

If your destination is London, the quickest option is to take the Stansted Express train. The train station is underneath the terminal so you just descend to the platforms by escalators or lifts.

The Stansted Express takes 45 minutes to London’s Liverpool Street Station and runs about every 15 minutes during the day. Last trains are around midnight. The fares on the Stansted Express are expensive, well over $US40 for a single return fare. The Liverpool Street terminus is also not very convenient for most travellers, being sited in the middle of the financial district of London, 3-5 miles from most of the most popular hotel accommodation. The train stops at an intermediate stop called Tottenham Hale, 10 minutes before Liverpool Street, an interchange with the London Underground (Victoria Line).

Many of the airlines will sell tickets for the Stansted Express, some at a discount, before landing at Stansted Airport.

The budget transfer option into London is to take one of four scheduled coach services run by National Express and Terravision. There is a large, modern coach station in front of the terminal, adjacent to the rail station.

The cheapest option is the Terravision service to Liverpool Street Station, the same route as the Stansted Express. The price is about half that of the Stansted Express Train. Downside like all road based transfers is the London traffic, on a good day the coach will make it in about an hour. National Express run services about every 30 minutes to nearby Stratford Underground at a similar price.

The other route taken by the coaches is Stansted to London Victoria. Both have return fares around $US25. The Terravision service is non-stop, the National Express service makes stops through central London, many of them close to the major hotel districts. The National Express service is a true 24×7 service, the Terravision service only stops for a couple of hours early morning. Some of the highest frequencies are around midnight Stansted-London and very early morning London-Stansted for the first and last flights when the Stansted Express and London Underground have shut down.

Because of the sometimes extraordinarily cheap fares of Ryanair and easyJet a lot of transcontinental travellers have found it cheapest to fly into Heathrow and then complete their journey to their European destination using a low cost airline from Stansted.

National Express run shuttle services between Heathrow and Stansted from the coach station at Stansted. There are usually a couple of services an hour, the journey taking around 90 minutes (though delays on the motorway are almost routine at rush hours). The fare is not cheap either. The return fare is about $US50. It is cheaper to use the indirect National Express service to Stratford and then catch the London Underground to Heathrow, but less comfortable.

If you want to stay over at Stansted Airport before a flight there are plenty of options available. Like all airport hotels at London, room rates are normally much cheaper at weekends than mid-week. If you are transiting from Heathrow or Gatwick which have much fiercer competition, you will probably find rates more expensive at Stansted, particularly in the budget sector.

Immediately adjacent to the terminal is the luxury Stansted Radisson SAS, the only airport hotel where you do not need a hotel transfer vehicle. This is perhaps the most luxurious hotel and at weekends rates can be fairly competitive. The original luxury hotel at Stansted is the 4 star Hilton Hotel on the airport perimeter. The Hilton Stansted runs its own shuttle bus from the coach station about every 30 minutes.

In the immediate vicinity of the airport is an Express by Holiday Inn and a Best Western. The consistently cheapest option is the Days Inn on a motorway services area at the entrance to Stansted Airport. It provides no airport transfer facility itself though of course there are taxis and a local bus service.

Apart from the chains there are a lot of independent hotels in the vicinity. These feature hotels for all budgets and tastes, ranging from Country House Hotels, to pubs to traditional Bed and Breakfasts. The countryside around Stansted is surprisingly unspoilt and there is opportunity to stay in a traditional market town or coaching inn for example.

Some Feasible Options for Stansted Airport Transfer

Stansted Airport, which is located roughly 48km towards the northeast of Central London, is a hub of low-cost European carriers. In terms of passenger traffic, it is the fourth busiest airport in UK after Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester. The good thing about Stansted Airport is that it is extremely well-connected with Central London by means of several modes of transports. Let’s take a look at some popular airport transfer modes.

Car- Unlike Gatwick Airport, where parking is a costly proposition, Stansted Airport has several cheap parking lots in its vicinity. You can choose anyone of them to park your car safely. If you have to catch a crack-of-dawn flight, the most feasible option for you will be book a reasonably priced airport hotel. A majority of overnight hotels offer exciting parking packages that can help you to save a lot of money.

Taxi- Taxi is the most convenient way to get to London Stansted. There are more than 500 companies providing first-rate taxi services at Stansted Airport. For a standard taxi, you will have to spend anything between £80 and £100. It will take approximately one hour to reach Central London, depending upon the traffic condition and the time of the day. At a slightly higher price, chauffeur-driven luxury taxis are also available. They are typically equipped with facilities as air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, Sat Nav, snacks, water, magazines and newspaper. You can book these taxis either by phone or by internet. If you have not been able to book the taxi in advance, don’t worry as it is possible to arrange for one at an appropriate desk at the International Arrivals Hall of the airport. Upon booking the taxi, the company will provide you the phone number of the driver. Use the number frequently to keep the parking charges to a minimum.

Bus- Terravision, Stansted Bus and easy bus are three major bus services that operate between London Stansted and Victoria Station and Liverpool Street Station. If you have time in hand, opt for easy bus. For as low as £2, you can reach Stansted Airport from Victoria Station. Terravision shuttle bus service is slightly expensive, but the time taken to reach the airport is lesser. The journey between Victoria and Stansted is completed in 75-minutes. However, the cost of the journey is £9.

Coach- Almost all major cities of UK are connected with London Stansted by long and short distance coach services operated by National Express. These coaches are available 24-hours a day, and they can be caught at various pick-up points.

Train- Beneath the terminal building of the airport, there is a station that is served by Stansted Express. Depending upon the time of the day, it runs every 15 to 30 minutes. In addition to Stansted Express, the station is served by other trains originating from Liverpool Station and the Midlands. If you book your train ticket in advance, you can save as much as 43 percent. This makes the train the cheapest mode of transportation.

World Cup Goalkeepers – Jens Lehmann

Born in Essen, Germany in 1969, Jens Lehmann’s soccer career kicked off in 1989 with FC Schalke where he played for almost 10 years before moving on to AC Milan in 1998.

Said to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world, Lehmann created a name for himself while with Schalke. However, after signing up with Milan, his performance took a dip and he was dropped from the squad after just five matches. He made a decision to move back to Germany and signed up with Borussia Dortmund where he went on to win the German League title in 2002. Lehmann then went on to sign up with the Gunners in July 2003 and was seen as Arsene Wenger’s answer to replace the ageing David Seaman.

During his first season with Arsenal, Lehmann played in every match and the Gunners went on to clinch the FA Premier League title without dropping a match. Lehmann, who many say has also undergone stringent mental training to reach his potential often comes out of his goal to intercept passes. He was man of the match during his club’s performance against Manchester United in the 2005 FA Cup Final after he made numerous brilliant saves to keep the score at 0-0 after extra time.

Lehmann then went on to save a fierce shot from Paul Scholes during the penalty shoot-out, handing a 5-4 victory to Arsenal.

However, one doubt remained on the mind of fans as they pondered his temperament following several «incidents» during the games. The German goalkeeper first donned his gloves for the national team in February 1998 in a match against Oman and to date has earned more than 25 caps for his country. He has however been in a constant tussle for a place between the posts with Oliver Kahn, from Bayern Munich. As many will be comparing him with Kahn, Lehmann will require a lot of mental strength to deal with the pressure. So, mental training should become an important part of any footballer’s training program today.

However, luck was on his side and according to a recent statement from the German Football Federation, Lehmann has won the race to keep goal for his country. The issue of who would don the Number 1 jersey has dominated the German football scene and the pressure was intense on national coach Jurgen Klinsmann to make a decision.

Public polls had recently favoured Lehmann, whom many said was in fine and consistent form.
