The J. League Togel Awards

 

 

With the Japanese season currently ensconced in its long winter hibernation, it’s time to look back on some of the movers and shakers of the 2008 season, as Soccerphile hands out its J. League awards!

 

Team of the year – Oita Trinita

 

Both Kashima Antlers and Gamba Osaka deserve accolades – the former for winning back-to-back J. League titles and the latter for lifting an AFC Champions League/Emperor’s Cup double.

 

But few could begrudge the nomination of Kyushu club Oita Trinita as team of the season.

 

Not only did coach Pericles Chamusca Togel transform his outfit from potential relegation candidates to a genuine title contender, but he also lifted the first ever J. League trophy in Kyushu’s football history, as Oita Trinita lifted the 2008 Yamazaki Nabisco League Cup crown.

 

They were rarely pretty to watch – Oita combined the best defence in the league with one of the most goal-shy attacks – but they enriched Japanese football by threatening the hegemony of teams from the Kantō plain. Long may it continue.

 

Best stadium – Nack5 Stadium Omiya

 

The name might be tragic, but Omiya Ardija’s revamped Omiya Park Stadium wins the gong for the best new top-flight ground – by virtue of the fact that it’s the only new top-flight ground.

 

It was actually inaugurated towards the back end of the 2007 campaign, but this being Omiya’s first full season in their new home, the Squirrels earn the crown of best stadium on the basis of a compact design, excellent sightlines and the wonderful standing terraces behind the goals.

 

Now if Omiya could only fill it to its 15,500 capacity on a regular basis, it may just become the fortress that Ardija officials were originally hoping for.

 

Best supporters – JEF United

 

Whether from Chiba, Ichihara or anyone else within the region, JEF United fans packed Fukuda Denshi Arena on a consistent basis, despite the fact that their team spent virtually the entire campaign languishing in the relegation zone.

 

Full houses at home lead to crucial victories over the likes of Kashima Antlers and Urawa Reds, and when United went 2-0 down to FC Tokyo on the final day in a match they had to win in order to avoid relegation, their legion of yellow-clad fanatics willed the team home to an incredible 4-2 come-from-behind …

Qatar v Uzbekistan: A match minus the Togel Online football

 

 

The flights to Doha were booked without complication, accommodation was effortlessly secured, and match tickets were purchased with ease. My introductory experiences of international tournaments have rarely unfolded with such simplicity.

 

Faz and I arrived at the Khalifa Stadium in Doha last night genuinely excited at the prospect of witnessing the opening ceremony of the Asian Cup. The deafening and visually spectacular pre-match firework display, which would have impressed even the dourest Mancunian, seemed ideal preparation. What followed however was a Togel Online comedy of errors: Qatar vs Uzbekistan.

 

I’ve never seen a stadium so disinterested in a football match. Faz and I might hail from Liverpool, a city with an almost idolatrous passion for the game, but this level of indifference to the sport is something you won’t find in many places – even Milton Keynes.

 

The performance of the hosts made me long for a cessation of their national alcohol restrictions, or that I too had come dressed from head-to-toe in a thobe/gutra, if only to allow me to sleep without incurring suspicion. I would have shielded my face with the “Qatar” scarf I bought outside the ground, but it was covered in Arabic writing, which could mean anything. ‘We hate football’ would be the most suitable sentiment, but that was admittedly unlikely. I decided not to risk the facial disguise, and just en-joy/dure the game.

 

By contrast, the handful of travelling supporters made far more entertaining viewing. They actually watched the match, and I’m pretty sure they knew the rules. (Which probably helps explain why Uzbekistan’s initial bid to host the 2022 World Cup finals got lost in the mail, somewhere over the Chatkal mountains).

 

Like any self-respecting European my knowledge of the Stans derives chiefly from watching Borat. I’m not certain whether Uzbekistan is one of those countries with ‘inferior potassium’ or if they are indeed a nation of ‘assholes’. I’m quite sure however that many Qataris came to the latter conclusion tonight when the visitors had the audacity to defeat the hosts in the opening game. Not that the home supporters I spoke to were in buoyant mood before kick off – and with the game only minutes old, I was able to see why.

 

I saw Sudan play in the African Nations tournament in Ghana a few years back, and was almost sickened by their stark …

Butcher learns to Domino Qq relax

 

 

Terry Butcher was no wallflower during his 28-year playing, managing and punditry career in Britain but he’s quickly accepted needing to tone down his incendiary temper at Sydney FC.

 

It’s true, the legendary laid-back Aussie way of life is even getting to the former England captain, a man best remembered by finishing a 1989 World Cup qualifier swathed in bloodied bandages and putting his foot through a variety of dressing room doors the length and breadth of the country.

 

Butcher, it seems, has mellowed. The veteran of three l Domino Qq World Cup campaigns and 77 national team appearances as well as one of the country’s greatest football leaders of the past 20 years has been forced to, he says, after quickly discovering the Sir Alex Ferguson hairdryer school of management just didn’t wash with your modern Australian footballer.

 

He tried to make his pampered bunch at Sydney come around to the British mentality, naturally. But the methods he used to captain Rangers to three Scottish league titles and to a lesser degree help Motherwell’s revival simply failed to have the desired effect, particularly after Butcher replaced soft-talking German perfectionist Pierre Littbarski at the start of the season.

 

The metamorphosis came about slowly, mind. Earlier this season, for instance, Sydney’s usually affable left-back Alvin Ceccoli was suspended for swearing at Butcher after the coach had allegedly provoked him with a four-letter tirade of his own from the sidelines.

 

The former Ipswich centre-half, a self-acclaimed Norwich hater, also reportedly clashed with ex-Canaries midfielder turned Sydney assistant Ian Crook. The result was Crook was banished from the training ground before accepting a deal to join Littbarski at J-League second-division side Avispa Fukuoka.

 

But Butcher, who nowadays walks more gingerly than the commanding defender many might remember him, has admitted he’s bowed to change and adapted to the Aussie way. “I have mellowed. You have to mellow out here,” he told British football journalist Danny Kelly on the Times Online podcast last month. “It’s a different culture.

 

“If you rant and rave and do that sort of thing, it doesn’t wash. Your man management skills have got to be a lot better. You’ve got to be closer to the players. You can’t do those things.

 

“I tried early on, it didn’t work and I had to change. But you don’t drop your standards, …

Thuram against DNA tests for immigrants to play Bandar Togel Online

 

 

The French international Lilian Thuram is known for his political and social commitment, notably when the interests of his race are threatened. Barcelona’s defender has once again risen against a controversial move of his country’s government by signing a manifest against the obligatory DNA analysis that the president Nicolas Sarkozy plans to have imposed on all foreigners wishing to move to France in order to reunite with their families.

Such an obligation would according to Thuram be discriminatory and racist.

 

 

Argentina stage a reality show with soccer fans!

An Argentinian television prepares to produce a Big Brother-type show under the name of “Reality Goal”. The show will feature 20 guys, each one a fan of one of the 20 teams of the First division.

Although the condition for participation is a fanatical support for one of the clubs, the producers hope to convey a message on a peaceful coexistence and tolerance among followers of different colours.

 

“We wish to show that even the supporters of rival teams can live together without any violence,” said Fabián Olemberg, the creator of the program due to start in February.

Argentina is one of the countries where the soccer-related crowd trouble is the most prominent, specially when archrivals are involved like River and Boca in Buenos Aires, Rácing and Independiente in Avellaneda or Newell’s and Central in Rosario.

 

Germany confirms Löw until 2010

Joachim Löw has won a reward for taking Germany through to the European Championship finals in Austria and Switzerland: the German FA has extended his contract until 2010 so the current manager will stay in his seat regardless of his team’s showing at Euro 2008.

However, Löw plans to impress the soccer public with his team’s prowess at next year’s competition.

 

“Our goal is to play attractive Bandar Togel Online and win the European title, even though I’m aware that each player must work to improve physically and technically,” said Löw, whose three assistants, former German internationals Hans-Dieter Flick and Andreas Köpke, and Swiss national Urs Siegenthaler were also all extended.

In-demand Kennedy ready for Bandarqq Socceroos starting berth

 

 

The irony surrounding the eternal logistical problems of representing Australia is not lost on new Socceroos super-sub Josh Kennedy.

 

Kennedy, one of two uncapped call-ups for the Bandarqq World Cup squad, came from the depths of second-tier German football to stamp his mark on Australia’s journey to the knockout phase with a handful of striking displays upfront.

 

However, now he’s reached the stage of nailing down a regular international place, the inevitable club versus country conundrum is ready to rear its ugly head.

 

Kennedy will receive plenty of sympathy from the likes of superstars Mark Viduka and Harry Kewell, players who between them have amassed just 60 Socceroo caps in part because of the constant headache of international travel.

 

But resolving the discrepancy of the striker’s twin goals is really no closer despite Australia moving into the Asian confederation earlier this year.

 

And representing your country hardly gets any easier when you become a high profile signing for a top-flight club preparing an assault on a UEFA Cup place this season.

 

That’s exactly the situation Kennedy finds himself in.

 

Having served his apprenticeship in Germany since age 17, the long-haired hitman penned a three-year contract with ambitious Bundesliga side Nuremberg before the World Cup.

 

It was an offer too good to resist after patiently building a solid reputation as a goalscorer in the lower leagues with Stuttgart Kickers and latterly Dynamo Dresden after fruitless spells with VfL Wolfsburg and FC Cologne in the top division.

 

However, now six painstaking years of steady progress have paid off, how can the amiable Kennedy reward his new employer’s faith with continuous trips down under to represent his homeland?

 

“It’s definitely a touchy situation,” Kennedy admitted to Soccerphile during a two-week break in Australia after the World Cup. “We’ll definitely have to weigh up what’s the best thing at club level and at the same time keeping my Australian commitments without making either side angry.

 

“I’ll talk to the coach (Hans Meyer) when I get back to Nuremberg and no doubt will be in contact with Australia as well. Hopefully we can balance it pretty well.

 

“[But] the hardest thing to do is to balance both at the same time and keep everybody happy.

 

“I’ve made it clear to the Football Federation that I’d love to play every game. …

Poker: the big deal Judi Slot

 

 

On May 19, three days before the World Series began, May and his pal Donnie Sinkhorn of Louisville stuffed a few thou in their trou and flew to Las Vegas to take a stab at qualifying for the world’s most lucrative poker tournament.

 

May, 36, not only qualified, he togel singapore made it to the third round — outlasting the guys who finished 1-2 in last year’s World Series, the pinnacle of what might be the fastest growing game in America, not to mention one of the hottest shows on cable TV.

 

Bryan Dillon, a 49-year-old lawyer from Prospect, Ky., fared even better. He parlayed a $75 entry fee in an online tournament into a $10,000 payday at the World Series, where he finished 192nd.

 

“It’s the most physically grueling Togel Singapore experience I’ve ever been through,” said Dillon, who played 25 hours over three days. “You can’t imagine how fatiguing it is to concentrate that hard for that long.”

 

Donnie Sinkhorn plays regularly. “Poker is getting ridiculously huge,” he said.

 

Photo by Michael Hayman, The Courier-Journal Only 226 players earned a check, less than 10 percent of the total entrants — a pool that tripled in size this year.

 

“Poker is getting ridiculously huge,” said Sinkhorn, 28. “I know hundreds of guys from around here who play on a regular basis. I play once a week with nine or 10 friends, and once a month we have a 54-player tournament. It’s a phenomenon that’s really taking off.”

 

Is it ever. More than $100million is bet every day in online Togel Singapore poker games, according to pokerpulse.com, an industry Web site. The total purse for this year’s World Series of Poker was a staggering $49 million.

 

The poker boom has been the subject of recent stories in Time, Forbes, Sports Illustrated and The New York Times, and it has been mined for hit TV series by Bravo, the Travel Channel and ESPN.

 

It’s impossible to precisely measure the game’s popularity at the grassroots level, but anecdotal evidence abounds. Texas Hold ‘Em is the game of choice not only in the World Series of Poker and Bravo’s “Celebrity Poker Showdown,” but also for local fund-raisers staged by St. Therese Catholic Church and the Center for Women and Families.

PLAY THE MUMMY SLOTS MACHINE AND WRAP UP A BIG PAYDAY WITH ONLINE CASINO SINGAPORE

 

 

 

Not all of the slot machine gaming options at Titan Casino online are based on Marvel superheroes like Wolverine slots. In fact, many are based on other, more independent Hollywood ventures that are no less thrilling and engaging for casino gaming fans everywhere. Case in point: Titan Casino’s Mummy slots machine, which hearkens back to a blockbuster 1999 movie while also giving a brief refresher course in ancient Egyptian history.

 

Are you feeling nostalgic for the 1990s? Need a little Brendan Fraser in your life again? Or better yet, do you miss the good old days of yore (i.e., 5,000 years ago) when we wrapped our corpses up before burying them? In either event, be sure to log on to Titan Casino and check out the mummy of all casino games.

 

Mummification through the Ages

Historical accounts may vary, but the timeline of mummification dates back to approximately 3500 B.C., when the first evidence of intentional mummification was found in Egypt. The natives used to encase their dead in resin and linen wrappings before burying them. The Egyptians also used chemicals and cool storage conditions to keep the body from decaying any further. This way, they kept the bodies as intact as possible, as a way of honoring the dead.

 

Historical evidence indicates that over a million bodies were mummified in Egypt, spanning many centuries – and they weren’t all humans. The Egyptians typically reserved mummification for their most respected elders, including pharaohs, but they also performed the act for cats and other beloved and revered animals.

 

Though mummies were obviously most common in Egypt, there are also accounts of the dead being wrapped up in ancient South American and Asian cultures, as well as more recently, during the Middle Ages in Italy and Denmark, among other European nations. Mummies have thus been a nearly constant presence throughout history.

 

Big-Screen Blockbuster

Mummies have also had plenty of exposure in pop culture, such as the 1932 movie “The Mummy,” which starred Boris Karloff as Imhotep, and four later films in the 1940s from Universal Studios. But in 1999, mummies really hit the big time, as Fraser and Rachel Weisz achieved commercial success playing two Egyptologists who are terrorized by a reanimated mummy that’s on the prowl.

 

In the movie, mankind eventually triumphs – the zombie Imhotep becomes mortal again, and Fraser’s character …
