Soccer is one of the most popular sports, if not the most popular sport or hobby in the world. The soccer World Cup, which is the world soccer tournament that goes occurs every four years, gets more viewers than any other sporting event in the world. Soccer is such a big deal in some countries that it has caused political tensions between nations when their teams have played against each other in the World Cup. So why is soccer such a great hobby for everyone? For one thing, it does not require much equipment to play soccer, you just need a soccer ball to kick around and a couple friends, and some sort of goal that you can use to kick the ball into. The rules are rather simple and obvious, you just kick the soccer ball around and try to kick it into the other team’s goal to score, and you can’t touch the soccer ball with your hands.
Kicking a soccer ball around is something that can be addicting and you can spend hours and hours doing it without getting bored. You can do different tricks with your like dribbling and or seeing how many times you can kick the soccer ball without letting it hit the ground. You can practice tricks like the bicycle where you jump and kick it sideways or kick it in the air while falling onto your back. You can do that one trick where you roll the ball with one foot onto the back of your other leg and then use that other leg to kick it forward, from behind, over your head; that’s one of my favorites. It makes people think I am a good soccer player when I do that one, even though I am not.
One nice thing about soccer or a soccer hobby is that it definitely keeps you in shape with all of that running you have to do, and you have to be in pretty good shape to do well at soccer. Playing soccer is not like a light jog where you can just take it easy the whole time. You are at a full, dead sprint over and over. It’s fun too, so it doesn’t feel like you are just working out, you are playing a game instead. The last soccer team I played on was an indoor soccer team. I thought I was in shape, but then I could only last for a couple minutes before I had to take a breather, each time I went in.
One of my earliest memories of playing soccer was when I was on a little league soccer team as a kid. I was playing defense and all I did was kick the ball as hard as I could to the other end of the field every time it came to me. I also remember afterwards, I ate a piece of chocolate candy with the wrapper still on it. I didn’t swallow it, but it made me sick and had to quit dribbling my soccer ball on the way home from the soccer game, while I puked because the feeling in my mouth was so disgusting. I think my body was worked up from the sprinting in the soccer game as well and my stomach was tight. It still makes me sick to think about that experience all of these years later. But I sure had fun as a kid playing on my soccer team and had a lot of good experiences. I also still have a lot of good memories from my soccer days as a kid. It was fun being the center of attention as I kicked the ball around each time it came to me. I wasn’t that good though, and I played defense, so I usually just gave the soccer ball a nice boot to the other side of the field each time it came to me.
There are a lot of drills you can do with a soccer balls, just on your own to become a better soccer player. You can just practice dribbling, as mentioned above, where you just kick the soccer ball back and forth between your legs as you run. Once you get good at dribbling the soccer ball, you can show it off when you play games, but dribbling the soccer ball and cutting past people. Or, you can practice kicking and aiming the soccer ball at a certain point on a wall or practice kicking it into the goal or passing with the side of you foot, so you can get your aim better and score more goals when you play. You can dribble the soccer ball with your feet while weaving through cones. You can practice heading the soccer ball and aiming with your head. For some reason soccer player’s favorite thing to do is hit the soccer ball with their heads.
The Football Betting World

In order to reign a football betting, punters must self-control. Punters must not be addicted towards betting whenever they lose several matches they bet. Bet only on matches that meet your analyzed criteria. Each and every punter will has his match analysis methods and will evolved from time to time.

A working formula means it will never change and can be applied to all matches as generic guidelines. Nothing will be able to turn the decision table around when this formula is applied.
One of the most effective but simple formula to win in football betting is team performance analysis method. Firstly, punters will need to focus on top teams in every domestic league. For example Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Lyon and Bordeaux. Those teams are most probably rank on top at the end of each season. It means to say, betting on highly rank teams surely increases your winning chances. Base on statistics over the last 5 years, the top teams shall continue to win and clear handicap when they are on form or during bounce back. In contrast, the top teams shall keep losing when they are in a losing streaks. Base on this, punter is advised to put his bet only when the top teams on form or when they would just bounce back on track. The biggest mistake in football betting is chasing a team in streak loses to bounce back.
In retrospect, try to avoid match between giants. Bet only when your favorable top teams are playing against smaller teams. The secret of winning is just as simple as it is. You can beat the bookies right now if you can do all above.
