Pro Evolution Soccer is a football (soccer) video game with legions of fans around the world. PES games are produced for all major consoles including PS3, XBOX 360, Wii and PC and are distributed across all five continents making it a global powerhouse.

Pro Evolution Soccer games have now been around since 1996 when the uniquely titled Goal Storm started the Konami franchise. Along with the FIFA series from Electronic Arts (EA) the two games have gone head to head and dominated the football video game scene throughout this entire time. PES games have always focused on the playability and likeness to real football, whereas FIFA has predominantly been about being ‘official’, sacrificing game play for licensing and an arcade style of play.

The franchise has undergone several name changes in Europe and North America, at the moment the games are called PES followed by the next year to release year, so this year’s latest installment released this October, will be called PES 2013.

The initial name of Goal Storm was kept for just one year, before being changed to ISS Pro in 1997. Then it changed to ISS Pro 98 followed by ISS Pro Evolution in May 1999, making this the first time that ‘Evolution’ had appeared in the title. At this point in the history of the game, updates weren’t released at regular intervals and the first time I was introduced to the game was in 2001, with the arrival of ISS Pro Evolution 2.

Unlike in Europe and North America, in Japan – home of Konami, Pro Evo has retained the moniker ‘Winning Eleven’ since inception, with the prefix of ‘World Soccer’ being added after the first few years.

What made Pro Evo stand apart from other football games was the way the game played. The view of the action was side on and the ball could be kicked in any direction, unlike the FIFA games in which any directional shot would always fly towards goal, making the game seem staged.

Previous games which stayed true to football, such as Sensible Soccer, had top down views, which meant you played by either running up or down the television/monitor screen. Graphics were limited back in the 1990’s, but FIFA and Pro Evo started to change all of this – taking their respective games in different directions game play wise.

From the onset Pro Evolution Soccer never had naming rights for the players or teams, so early on in the franchise an editing option was created in the game. This allowed savvy gamers to edit the players and teams, replacing fake names with real ones. I remember spending hours recreating football strips and renaming all the players, until PES fan forums started a trend towards option files and max drives.

These saved option files were created by groups of fans and then uploaded via the internet to forum pages and download sites, so that all fans could quickly save and rename all the players in the game. Now they had better looking players, kits and real names, but it still didn’t compare to the official licenses of FIFA, but it didn’t have to, players simply wanted a resemblance, as it’s always been the game play that brings back fans year on year to Pro Evo.

This game play was honed over the following years as ISS Pro Evolution 2 became Pro Evolution Soccer in 2001. Game play was being tweaked all the time with AI (artificial intelligence) making the game smarter and the game speeds changed regularly, sometimes speeding up and then slowing down for the next release, as Konami tried to find the balance. Tackling became more of an art, instead of just button smashing and training modes were introduced to allow players to practice before doing things in real games.

Discussion on PES forums alluded to FIFA getting literally shirty with Konami on licensing issues, by forcing Konami to make the fake team names even more obscure (Manchester United were no longer ‘Man Red’, they were now ‘Aragon!’). This provided new challenges for the edit masters and fans always hoped that Konami would battle for the licenses for the next game – to date this still hasn’t happened taking into account PES 2013.

In Pro Evolution Soccer 2 commentators Peter Brackley (voice of Football Italia on Channel 4) and Trevor Brooking were introduced to add a new dimension in the realism stakes. Hearing somebody famous talk about your team during play sounded exciting in principle, but limitations in the technology meant that this could quickly become boring, monotone and often, irrelevant.

By comparison, music was introduced to the menu screen, with Queen belting out ‘We Will Rock you’ and ‘We Are The Champions’ amongst other artists and tracks. Music in the menus was a welcome addition as you could very often spend long periods of time negotiating these pages, especially if you were editing. This has been a feature Konami has maintained and improved over the years, right up until the present, often using small, unheard or unknown groups and giving them a platform to reach people through with their music.

In Part Two of PES games we’ll look at the continuing battle with FIFA, the movement to online and high definition gaming and how PES hopes to regain its football video game crown with PES 2013.

In order for all to go smoothly at the official 2010 FEI World Equestrian Games, there need to be some test runs and pre-game judging forums. Enter: The Kentucky Cup. These will be the official testing games leading up to the fall, 2010 competition bonanza, and they will be held during the summer months of 2009 and the early spring months of 2010. The first two testing competitions that will be held at the Kentucky Horse Park are the reining and the vaulting contests, and these will be the first to take place inside of the brand new indoor stadium.

The Three Day Event will signal the halt of the 8 separate Kentucky Cup testing competitions, after which the racing and summer seasons will take over before a pause will be made in preparation for the big world games event. These are official qualifying factors, used to determine both the placement of teams going into the World Equestrian Games as well as the overall flow of the functional avenues that will hold the competitions next fall. The Kentucky Horse Park is offering the public to view these exciting tests free of charge, and only car parking will be charged during these timed events.

Those who wish to take advantage of these less crowded yet over exciting and professional testing competitions can take advantage of some very generous hotel group rate codes provided at the Alltech FEI website under "testing". Kentucky Horse Park would also like to invite visitors to take advantage of the low admissions costs on these days for the reminder of the park, which include horse drawn tours and two of the finest equine museums in the world. Those who are more interested in house rentals can also find some great opportunities through just a little bit of research.

There will be two phases of both the reining and the vaulting tests on display at the stadium, the reining competition testing in both teams and individuals. Those who wish to volunteer for the world games in the more specialized areas may have been urged to volunteer during the testing events as well, and this is a great opportunity to get familiar with the goings on and demands of the games next year. This is also a wonderful opportunity for those who may not be able to afford the games to get up close to these professional athletes in all of their splendor.

EUFA Champions League is world famous football league held every year, where champions of every European country leagues from last year are group in this awesome UEFA Championship League to play a win the trophy that will declare them the best Football Team of Europe.

Therefore this is a multi-million tournament! New stars and born in this most awaiting football event and this is why all football/soccer fans love to watch, enjoy and bet on this event.

Inter Milan is the current UEFA Championship League trophy holder; they beat Bayern Munich 2-0 in the last Champions League finals.

Real Madrid is the team who won the most UEFA Championship League, they left this trophy 9 times (1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1966, 1998, 2000, 2002), followed by AC Milan who won 7 times (1963, 1969, 1989, 1990, 1994, 2003, 2007) and Liverpool who won 5 times (1977, 1978, 1981, 1984, 2005).

Bayern Munich and Ajax both won 4 times, Bayern Munich in (1974, 1975, 1976, 2001) and Ajax in (1971, 1972, 1973, 1995).

Barcelona, Inter Milan and Manchester United won 3 times each. Barcelona in (1992, 2006, 2009), Inter Milan in (1964, 1965, 2010) and Manchester United in (1968, 1999, 2008).

Benfica, Juventus, Nottingham Forest and Porto won 2 times in tournament; Benfica in (1961, 1962), Juventus in (1985, 1996), Nottingham Forest in (1979, 1980) and Porto in (1987, 2004).

Celtic, Hamburg, Steaua BucureYti, Marseille, Feyenoord, Aston Villa, PSV Eindhoven, Red Star Belgrade and Borussia Dortmund won 1 time each.

Meaning 4 British teams: Liverpool, Machester United, Nottingham Forest and Aston Vila have won this competition. Followed by 3 Italian teams: Ac Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus and 3 German teams: Bayern Munich, Hamburg and Borussia Dortmund.

The reason why I am writing this is because this is crucial data that can help to predict which team from which country got better odds to win the next UEFA Championship League.

Heavy better usually really on this sort of data (plus experience). It is estimated that over 100 million bets are placed every year over UEFA Championship League.

I cannot say which team will win the next Champions League, however based from this crucial data I can say that a team from Britain as better chances to win the next Champions League as a team from Romania; since the only Romanian team (Steaua BucureYti) won only 1 Champions league so far. Where 4 strong British teams such as: Liverpool, Manchester United, Nottingham Forest and Aston Vila won 11 times in total.

When I started coaching I was looking for a way to incentivize my players to come to practice. I was coaching a recreational team and we only had 4 practices before our first game. I realized that it would make a huge difference if I could get all of my players to come to those 4 practices. I was looking for something inexpensive and tried a lot of different things. Finally I found the small one-inch iron-on soccer patches. I paid 55 cents each for them 15 years ago. From the start they really worked. Below are ideas for how to use them as incentives, rewards and for positive reinforcement:

1. Develop a Plan. Think through what you want to encourage and use the patches to incentivize and reward your players. The iron-on patches are used for soccer, baseball, basketball, martial arts, swimming, skating, band, volleyball and other sports. They are also used by schools, churches and clubs.

2. Give them in a Ceremony in Front of the Team and Parents. For the best results, keep in mind the benefits of public praise, competition and group pressure. Everyone loves to be praised in front of a group and it is natural for kids to want to earn something that their teammates have earned. That is why it works best to give the patches out after the game in a ceremony in front of all the players and parents and be sure to PRAISE the players and tell them why they EARNED the patches. This will make them proud and will let the other players know the type of behavior that will EARN a patch.

3. Positive Reinforcement. A positive reinforcement approach gets better results than a negative approach and is a lot more fun for everyone.

4. Visible Symbols. The soccer patches really work to incentivize players and for positive reinforcement. They are a visible symbol.

The Star Patches and Soccer Patches Also Incentivize Other Players Who See the Patches and Want to Earn Them. The patches are an incentive for the behavior you want and when you give a player a patch it is positive reinforcement and a visible symbol that the player has done a good thing and was rewarded. Other players will know how the patches were earned and will want to please the coach and earn patches.

Coaches that use knockout drill during their training sessions run a great risk of destroying the confidence of the maker players on their team, and creating disharmony within the team. Knockout drills are drills where players get progressively eliminated until you are left with a winner. Your winner will most likely be the best player on your team. My experience with coaching children is that the great majority of coaches already know who the best player on the team is. So my question is do you want to find out what you already know, or do you want to improve the ability of the players in your team? If your answer is the latter, then you have no reason to use knockout drills.

My aim with any practice is to maximize the number of touches on the soccer players that all players achieve. All soccer drills should be engineered so as to achieve this goal. Without argument, there are many valuable skills that a player must learn which do not involve touching the ball, however of the major skills (trapping, passing and tackling) all require the player to be able to control the ball in an effective manner. So for this reason, I have always tried to create sessions which get players touching the ball more. If you have a weaker player on your team and you want them to improve, get them kicking the ball more. Encouraging them to kick a ball outside of practice sessions will also speed their improvement.

Another effective way to achieve the goal of increasing Touches on the ball for all players is to divide your team into small groups at practice. This may mean that you have to enlist the aid of your team manager or parents to help with supervision. Having players stand in line to wait for their turn to kick the ball is not an effective means of practice. Yet it is one seen on many training paddocks. It is definitely more challenging to supervise a number of small groups, particularly if you do not have any help, but a coach can rotate among the groups to aid supervision. Dividing your team into groups of 3 or 4 players, rather than 1 group of 12 to 14 players will potentially increase the number of ball touches for each players by at least three times. How much more quickly will your players improve by this method?

If you want to introduce an element of competition into your practices and you have been using knockout drills for a long time this may be a little difficult to come to terms with. All players respond better to competition (except the ones on the sideline !!). Another means of getting around this problem is to use a rotation of players. Maybe you have three team of four playing four vs. four. If you want an extra element of competition have one team sit out, replacing the team that does not win, and so on. Or if you have three teams of four set up two fields and rotate the teams around the fields.

So for those coaches that have been using knockout drills in their practice I hope you have been very successful with these. I would also hope that you may experiment with using some of these techniques, and that you continue to see improvement in your players. For new coaches I would strongly encourage you not to use knockout drills, but rather to use small groups, soccer drills that maximize the number of ball Touches for all children, and rotation of small teams. Good luck with your coaching.

Break out that video camera, there is a game this weekend!

1. You bought a video camera

2. You want to shoot sports of your kid

3. Here is how to do it right!

What a wonderful age of technology we live in. You can buy the greatest gadgets now days to record video and music and play them in all sorts of ways on other great technology gadgets from computers, DVD's, MP3 players, VCR's, and many more. It is all great stuff. But they all come with thick owners manuals that do not always get you going the right direction. You may eventually learn to use your great new camera for instance, but that does not mean you will needlessly take pictures that are worth looking at down the road. Rolling tape in your camera is one thing and creating video that is high quality and interesting is another thing. The goal of this product is to bring you up to speed with using your video camera (whatever format, and whatever brand) to get the best results for recording those precious moments of your kid's athletic achievements.

We as parents spend plenty of hours out on the field, court, pool, or track watching our kids take part in and compete in youth sports. If you have a video camera you are going to want to record some of these events for posterity and sometimes education. Following the simple steps in this guide will help you to capture them in the best possible fashion so that it is watch capable but also usable down the road.

My video expertise stems from two decades as a network television cameraman and as a parent with several kids actively involved in youth sports. In my years of shooting video professionally I have been around the world and seen just about every type of news event. I also spent 15 years covering pro sports events for my employer. These were the best type of assignments as far as I was concerned. In my entire career the things I have enjoyed most is being able to go to places where the average person can not. In sports that usually means being on the field, next to the court, in the press box, or in the pit. I have shot football games of all levels up to and including NFC and AFC championship games. Living in the Bay Area has allowed me to cover many baseball pennant races and several World Series. I was right behind home plate the night the earth shook in the 1989 World Series. Talk about a shock. I had to give up covering a World Series between the two Bay Area teams to go and cover a huge news event. Baseball seemed small for a while after the magnitude of the earthquake. The point in this is that I love sports, have been around sports my whole life and I know how to shoot video of sports. With that in mind I will do my best to give you advice on how to do the same.

Gear

Now wherever you have the latest DV camera in your hands or an old VHS format camera there are basic things you will need to keep in mind if you are going to shoot sports. As we say in the video business your camera is only as good as the glass that you hang in front of it. The better the lens the better the results will be no matter what kind of recording format you use. Now you already have a camera in hand and may never have heard this particular bit of advice so it is too late to factor it into the equation. However if you have a camera in hand and it has any limitations on what it can do due to the lens being less than wonderful there are things you can do to mitigate the situation. We will discuss those things in more detail later on.

The key factors before setting out on your game day video assignment are to make sure you know the operating functions of the gear, have a tape supply in hand (soon to be DVDs with the revolution in gear design that is taking place right now) and batteries fully charged. I know these may seem like the simply obvious things but even the pros have to constantly remind themselves to check and double check these items.

A little side here about preparation. Over the many years of covering news I learned lots of little tips from other photographers in the field and applied them to my work regimen. In the early days of video we always had to carry around a portable hair dryer because the record decks would seize up if the moisture levels got to high. So in the winter time if you came in from the cold outside into a nice warm building the air would condense inside the machine and cause moisture build up. The warning light would come on and bang we were dead in the water. One of us would have to run to the car and get the hair dryer, fire it up and chase the water away from the record heads of the deck. It caused some very funny moments in public places I can assure you. (This by the way can still be a problem even today with electronics / VCRs / lenses.

Another thing I learned from others is the value of backup. A few years ago I was out on assignment and we had a young eager college intern along with us in the field. This young man wanted to learn all about what we did in our job. He was very interested in how to take pictures, unlike most of our interns who only wanted to become reporters or anchors. He asked many questions and after seeing that he was really paying attention I decided to take him under my wing and really fill him up with information. One tidbit that I shared with him was to always have an emergency stash of tape in his car when out on assignment. He did not quite understand the importance of this at first since I had already drilled him about always bringing tape stock with him when going out on assignment. I filled him with stories of times when something or other happened and I'll be darned if you did not need another tape and there under the seat of the car was that emergency spare. So anyway he went off to graduate from college and get a job in a small market TV station. He would send us progress reports from time to time, which I really enjoyed. Then lo and behold one day he sends me a letter telling me how he got into a jam one day on a story and needed that emergency tape. He had dutifully tucked one under the back seat and it was there to save the day. I hope that what you learn in this book will in some way keep you from having a video failure down the road. What I learned in my career is that video production is 80% of it is dealing with the curves and problems that are thrown at you and 20% talent. If you can learn to trouble shoot then you will always be successful.

My first suggestion for shooting your kids sports activities is to go watch TV. Yes sit down put your feet up and watch some sports on TV. Really watch how they make it interesting at the top level. Then watch the news and see how they cover the games from a news perspective. Do not pay attention to the content; just watch how it develops visually. Now of course you can never duplicate what the networks are doing with just your one camera. However if you can glean anything from watching it should be how they try to bring intelligence with the athletes out in the broadcast. All the new improvements in covering sports have to do with getting you the viewer as close to the athlete as they can. Bring you into their world. From cameras on wires overhead that swoop along the field to cameras in the net of a hockey game to cameras inside the cars at Daytona, it brings you into the game. Now you can not stand on the pitchers mound at your kids' baseball game but you can learn some techniques that can make your baseball video more intimate and therefore more compelling to watch.

A side note here, if your task is to capture the whole game or sporting activity for review as a coaching tool you should focus mainly on getting a good high view and putting the camera on a tripod. Pan slowly to follow action and do not zoom in and out. My main goal here is not to teach you this skill since it is pretty darn basic. However if this is what you are doing you should do it right. Find the right framing to keep as much of the activity in the frame and follow it carefully. Some sports move quickly from one end to the other and you will have to be smooth. Resist the temptation to follow the ball on full zoom. You will lose. Those guys that shoot sports on TV are full on pros using much better gear than you will ever have at your disposal.

Now in order to get a good video of your child's game you need to find that emotion and excitement that exists in any game. Think of it as capturing a few of the things that occur and making those golden. Does the team do a pre game cheer? Get up close, stick your camera wither way up high over their heads looking down or get underneath looking up and shoot it in a way that takes the viewer where they can not go. Capture an at bat in baseball by taking a full pitch cycle in close-up of the pitcher, and then one of the catcher and then as close as you can of the hitter. Show their face if you can. If they get the big hit do not go crazy rushing to zoom out. Follow the runner down the line. It will be almost impossible to follow the ball so stay with the runner. Look for the angles that will give you these emotional shots.

Some sports are more of a challenge due to the size of the field and the amount of movement up and down the field. Take soccer of instance, if you follow the ball the camera is moving all over the place and the viewer gets queasy. To capture some good video of your kid playing you need to focus on specific shots and not try to follow the play. Look for moments such as throw ins, free kicks, kick offs when things are predictable and you can get closer to the action. Walk down the sideline and wait for the action to come to you. If you child is playing right forward then get ahead of the play and when you see the ball moving towards you then you can find you child and roll tape in anticipation of them playing the ball. Be sure to get some shots of the crowd cheering, the coach watching (not yelling I hope) the goalie waiting in anticipation.

Hold your shots steady for 6-10 seconds at a time. If you are taking a shot of someone watching the game actually count it out in your head (thousand one thousand two …) This will ensure that you get good solid shots and that you do not run on and on with the shot. Brace your arm against your chest for stability and use your other arm across your belly underneath to create a stabilizing platform. This is in lieu of a tripod of course. If you have a tripod it can always be a good thing to use if it does not get in the way.

Use creative angles as much as possible. Get down low and wait for the action to run by you. Do not pan with it but rather let the action race through the frame. At a swim meet get the camera down on the deck for more of a swimmers perspective of the action. Of course you may not want to stay there when the swimmers approach for a turn. Digital electronics do not like water inside them. I was getting the most awesome low angle shots of some open water ocean swimmers one time and the boat lurched on me and salt water sprayed over the camera. I had a cover on the camera but salt water seeped into the crannies and it caused us much grief getting it cleaned out so as to avoid damaging the electronics of the camera.

I play a round of mean soccer with my MALE soccer buddies every Wednesday night. I’m the only rose among the thorns. During each game, I simply forget that they are guys. I just concentrate on the game of eleven players against eleven players.

You may be curious to know which position does this rose cover? As I’m extremely nibble, agile and have excellent reflexes, I ‘man’ the goalposts. Yes, I’m the goalkeeper.

Mind you, the job of goalkeeping may be the most difficult job on the soccer pitch because the actions can come so fast and quick.

The goalie needs to possess the capacity to be razor sharp in concentration at a moment’s notice even though he/she may not have much to do for the last 89 minutes.

Now, why do these thorns trust their rosie goalkeeper… simply because I made a mean goalie. My defenders have absolute confidence in this “last woman standing”.

The great Brian Clough once said a good goalkeeper could be worth 15 points a season. It has been 360 minutes without my conceding a goal and I’m proud of this humble record.

I realized that playing a soccer game and placing a soccer bet have a lot of similarities. There are ups, there are downs, and sometimes there are turnarounds in the game or bet.

However, I’ve found that in soccer live betting, most of the “unpredictables” in the game can be decoded.

The odds provided by the bookmakers are a reflection of the performance of the teams on the pitch from the bookmakers’ point of view. So when we go along with the bookmakers’ reading of the game as reflected by the odds, we cannot be far off.

This makes soccer live betting a literal gold-mine IF we can possess the skill to “decode the odds” and place our winning bets. With so many live bets being offered on every match day, there’s plenty of profitable actions to be had.

(Live betting is also popularly known as bet in-play, in-running, in-game and running ball).

I was searching for a soccer live betting book which can teach me the techniques to decode the odds which is the integral part in profitable live betting. I found what I wanted in this 108 page soccer live betting system and let me show you what I’ve discovered.

1) Match Fixing At This Tail End Of The Soccer Season

The soccer season in Europe has reached the tail end. Games have been played and matches have been won and lost.

It is at this point of the season that the rumours of match fixing will rear its ugly head.

How could we ignore the gossips when completely unexpected results happen… especially when this is the crucial point of the season when teams are fighting for coveted places to play in an European competition, or to avoid relegation.

Of course, in soccer, just like in any sport, there are always freak results. Just one error in judgement by a referee or a linesman can make a difference between winning and losing.

For normal bets, unless the punter has access to the match fixing syndicate, it can be difficult for him to ‘smell out’ the suspicious matches. He has to be vigilant on any abnormal odds swings or prices too good to be true. The onus is on himself to be alert before placing his bets.

For live bets, as the odds are adjusted according to how the match is moving, if a syndicate has fixed a game, say the Home team to lose the match, their poor play would have been reflected in the odds movements. So you can say that this is one advantage live bets have over normal bets, provided you can decode the odds.

2) The Main Thing That This System Has Taught Me

This book opened up my eyes to look at the odds from a different angle – the angle which brought in the dole. I didn’t know the secret is hidden in the odds. Once you discover it, you’ll realize how easy it is to make money in soccer live betting.

I love the chapter on “Timing Of The Bets”. The author has meticulously explained the rationale in determining the best “profitable” times to place the bets. The screen-shots made it real easy to understand.

3) The No. 1 Tip I’ve Learned

For me, the No. 1 tip I’ve learned is the discipline to follow the criteria of each of the 10 strategies.

I realized the criteria form the foundation of the strategy and by following them strictly, I’ll not be tempted to deviate due to any emotion.

I’ll only place my bets when the selection meets the criteria 100%. This discipline makes me place each bet with utmost confidence.

4) The No. 2 Tip I’ve Learned

I realized a good betting system must be complemented with sensible money handling knowledge.

This book has an in-depth coverage on money management rules especially in staking plan and stop win/stop loss limit.

I once followed a system which recommended doubling up the next stake amount to cover the last loss. In one weekend, I lost 90% of my bank.

So knowing how to handle my betting money is the No. 2 tip.

5) Why Is This System The Complete System

I love to describe things in terms of hardware and software.

In this system book, the 10 strategies are the hardware. But to get the system going towards the profitable mode, it is necessary to install an efficient software to ensure consistent profit.

In this book, the author took pains to expound on the virtues of maintaining a winning mindset and dealing with emotions of fear and greed, every punter’s worst enemies.

The chapter on fear and greed is most valuable as the author painted a few betting scenarios to illustrate the point that the distinction between the successful punters and the unsuccessful lot is how they deal with these two emotions.

6) Which Strategy Every Punter Should Know

Out of the 10 strategies, I feel every live bettor should be well versed with the “Cut Loss Strategy” in order to limit any financial damage whenever needed.

Many things can happen in 90 minutes on the soccer pitch. To me, it is very comforting to know that there is a strategy of a “Plan B” when the original strategy is not working. This is my favourite strategy because I love back doors.

7) How Does This System Benefit You

With the 10 strategies, you’ll know exactly what to do when the betting opportunities present themselves.

You’ll not be led by emotion, or relying on luck, or by “guesstimates” to place your bets.

The odds which are a reflection of the performance of the two teams on the pitch will tell you what to do.

8) Can You Really Make $1200 In 3 Hours

Yes, you definitely can. There are so many live games offered on every match day. With the 10 strategies, you can generate regular profits easily.

Of course, your profit figure will depend on your stake amount. Always bet within your comfort zone.

9) What If You’ve No Experience In Soccer Live Betting

Do not fret. The system can be used even by an absolute beginner. Every strategy is described clearly. There are snapshots explaining each step of the strategy. So there is no guesswork. Every step is supported by the odds movement.

Conclusion

This system does not rely on injuries, previous match previews, weather condition, etc. It does not require hours of analysis on every match day.

You just need to acquire the know-how to read the odds movements.

Having the ability to “decode the odds” takes emotion out of the live betting equation. You bet based on what happens on the pitch, not whether Team A is your beloved team or Team X is your most hated club. This is the money making beauty of soccer live betting.

A good pair of soccer cleats keeps your feet feeling cozy and nice, offers you the right strikes and makes it possible for you to run around in the field during play. Good care for them ensures that they last you a long time serving you diligently. Whereas it is not advisable that you stick with only one pair because then it means faster wear and tear, at some point your favorite pair will still call for replacement.

The conditions of your soccer cleats can determine functionality wearing and playing. It helps to ensure that they remain in good shape and as a player and the wearer you would need to know when it is time to replace your good pair. Here are some of the top signs that you should consider making a replacement for keeping the pleasant experience going.

They look so much better when dirty. This could be because the uppers are worn out so bad that dirt helps in covering them up than a thorough clean does. If you find them looking better when they are dirty, then it should be time to make a replacement.

You can hardly tell the brand. Soccer cleats come branded so it is easy to distinguish between brands. If at some point it becomes hard to even tell what brand symbol or name is on them, you have used them too long and they are pleading for a rest.

They have become all crackly. Crackling noises, especially when you bend the forefoot means the leather has probably dried out under the years of use and is no longer the highest quality material you purchased. Even if you have been careful with how you wash and dry them, at some point the material will give and lose quality and it should be time to make the necessary replacement.

You find more protection from socks than the soccer cleats. The inners may be so worn out that they hardly offer the protection needed during play. The same could happen for the sole and the uppers, making them quite uncomfortable that you end up enjoying more protection from the socks. Without proper protection you may find your heels hurting and other parts of the legs and once this starts happening you should check the condition and do what needs to be done.

Repairs fail to do the trick. Sometimes all your pair may need are a few repairs and they are back to normal. However, if after repairs they lose their appeal, comfort and functionality, head to the stores and find yourself a new pair.

You can’t remember their price. This is probably because you bought your soccer cleats so long ago that you have forgotten the details that once were important to you. If you can’t seem to remember much about the purchase, then you have used them long enough and a replacement may be the next big thing you can do. They may be a favorite, but a change once in a while is definitely worth it.
