My First Article – InfoBarrel Forum

I also thought about using images in this article, but wasn’t sure about things like copyright? Any recomendations on sources for royalty free images I might be able to use?

I will probably be a slightly boring read for most, but if anyone would like to take a look or just give me general advice on layout or etc. Unforunetly the amazon over phone ID part of signing up, by entering a pincode wasn’t working for me.

Hi guys, my first article is online, and its an opinion piece which is pretty specific to fans of Arsenal Football Club and English Premier league fans, also it relates to this summer so will become outdated. I am thinking about doing Articles about some of my favorite lesser known artists, What advice can I get on using links from sites like youtube and soundcloud? or maybe someone can link to the FAQ or Rules on that? I can’t find them. that would be great thanks.

When linking other peoples articles from infobarrel, how do you guys approach it? Do you just search for related content and write something along the lines of, for more info on x I recommend checking out this great article from userhere, and then have a link? Do you ever inquire with the user first, if they like to be linked to?

Thanks in advance for any advice and feedback and kind regards,

Here is the article:http://www.infobarrel.com/How_Arsenal_football_club_should_spend_this_summer

I tried creating an amazons associates account to possibly link the teams jersey at the bottom of the page, although I gather this type of article is poor for generating sales. However it was an easy topic for me to start with.

Anfield horror show. – Free Online Library

It is a run which has taken them into the FA Cup semi-finals and slowly away from the relegation dogfight.

Gerrard’s looping ball to the left sent Riise away and he laid the ball back for Baros, who side-footed a 12-yard shot over the bar.

Liverpool’s Champions League ambitions took another knock asthey struggled to create a goal-scoring opportunity of note.

Liverpool now face a major test in the Merseyside derby on Sunday if they are to get anywhere near Everton in fourth place.

Liverpool barely created a chance in this dire match and, on one occasion in the first half, it needed Steven Gerrard to haul back Steven Reid after Aaron Mokoena’s swift run and pass from defence had sent the Rovers man charging upfield. . Riise replaced Smicer at half-time and the switch could have brought Liverpool a goal.

Everton manager David Moyes watched Rafael Benitez’s side driven to distraction by an organised, effective Blackburn who have now gone six games unbeaten and conceded just one goal. Gerrard was booked for his troubles by referee Barry Knight

Top Ten Soccer Shirts – InfoBarrel

They play very pretty football but to no great effect. They have a big selection and their prices are very competitive. They question how many of United’s so-called supporters ever set foot in Old Trafford. The modern United under another Scot Alex Ferguson have seen even more success. But the white of Real Madrid evokes a golden age of football too when the likes of Di Stefano graced the Sante Bernabeu stadium. There are few football fans, whatever their allegiance (unless they are Real fans of course!!) who wouldnt be proud to pull Barca’s red and blue soccer shirt over their heads.

Brazil Soccer Shirt1. Serious question we are short of one at the moment. Englishmen wear the shirt and the three lions on its badge with pride. They have won four European Championships in all, twenty-oneLa Liga title and 25 Copa Del Rey. “Football’s not a matter of life or death. Leave some comments and let me know your pick. We have little love for the Argentinian soccer shirt but a lot of respect.

Germany Football Shirt9 GERMANY

England is still celebrating victory over West Germany in the 1966 World Cup. The red shirt of United evokes pride, loyalty and dislike in equal measure.

Real Madrid Soccer Shirt3 REAL MADRID

Real Madrid are a top drawer side and their white soccer shirt and all white soccer kit are manufacturer Adidas’ biggest sellers. I’m conscious of some I’ve left off the list. Our earlier memories are of the 1966 World Cup, Rattin getting sent off and England manager Alf Ramsey (before he got the Sir in front of his name) calling the Argentinians ‘animals’.Now it’s the international shirt of Lionel Messi undoubtedly the best player currently pulling on a football shirt. The red football shirt of Man Utd. They will forever be associated with the Manchester United of that era. The football shirts shown are available through Amazon. Today they are famous for the Galacticos, stars drawn from across the world. You think blue and you think Chelsea. I can’t leave Arsenal off the list though; the distinctive soccer shirt, the distinguished record: 13 Premiership or old first division titles, 10 times F.A. So that’s it, a very personal selection of the world’s most evocative football shirts. Former Man Utd. Applicants of any nationality welcome (though an Englishman would make a change) – just need to be good at collecting silverware.

Arsenal Soccer Shirt

7. They have slipped out of the top four of late and are missing the big European nights that were such a feature of Anfield. Still three premier league titles, three runners-up spots, their first Cup and League double in 2010 and regular Champions League football would count as success for most teams and gets Chelsea on the list. Go for the shirt you love and that makes you proud or the one that will make someone else’s day.

My Personal Selection

It can be the shirt of your idols that you eat, drink and sleep in, the shirt of your bitter rivals you wouldn’t be seen dead in or the shirt of opponents you have a grudging respect for; but so many of our memories and feelings about the game of football are bound up in that essential piece of kit, the soccer shirt.Here is my selection of the top ten football shirts. We invented the game and can’t understand why we can’t always win everything. Two more European victories, including a stunning injury time victory against Bayern Munich are just the icing on the cake. The Brazilian soccer shirt above them all is the shirt that evokes the spirit of football.

Barcelona Soccer shirt

2 BARCELONA

Barcelona are the team of the moment, Europe’s finest. We have had 46 years of hurt, without a trophy, since then while the ruthlessly efficient Germans always get it right for the major tournaments. They swept Manchester United aside the last time the teams played and are head and shoulders above any other team in Europe. CHELSEA

Chelsea have done better than Arsenal in recent seasons but Roman Abramovich’sRussian millions have not bought the level of success he craved and seven managers in nine seasons have paid with their jobs. Sir Alex, the Premier Leagues longest-serving manager has won 37 major honours since joining the club in 1986. The passion of Liverpool’s fans for their famous red soccer shirt runs deep and is very emotional.

4 MANCHESTER UNITED

Manchester United is a huge commercial operation. They would be on here for the all red football kit, the legendary Kop, the evocative “You’ll never walk alone” anthem and the inimitable Bill Shankley. Second only to Real in terms of wealth, Barca are more than a football club they are a symbol of Catalan culture and passion. Their shirts sell all over the world, about 1.5million per year. Arsene Wenger has done a terrific job at Arsenal but if Arsenal don’t pick up a trophy soon, or if the power shifts to their North London neighbours Tottenham, the Frenchman’s days will be numbered. “So into the blue corner goes Chelsea’s soccer shirt.

Liverpool Soccer Shirt5 LIVERPOOL

Liverpool would be on here if it was only for their five Champions League wins and eighteen top flight titles and seven FA Cup wins. Barca are the current European and Spanish champions. Germany have won two more World Cups since then (three in all) and three Euro championshipsand they always seem to eliminate the English on penalties. Cup winners, three times double winners. United have won more titles, 19 than any other club and have 11 FA Cup victories behind them. Our best memories are bound up with beating the men in the white shirts. favourite Ronaldo is currently playing at the SanteBernabeu. It’s a football shirt fans over the world want to be seen in but fans of other clubs deride United supporters as ‘glory hunters’ and not proper fans. The Brazilians with their samba rhythm and their silky ball skills and mesmerizing ability to bend the ball around a wall play the game the way it was meant to be played. Sadly European success has eluded them; no champions league victories and their single Cup Winners Cup victory in 1993-4 was a long time ago.

Chelsea Soccer Shirt6. Who would want to be an England Manager? ……….. Fierce rivals to Real Madrid darlings of Catalonia. BRAZIL

Finally, the Yellow and Green soccer shirt of Brazil and the blue shorts make up the football kit that evokes everything that is beautiful about the beautiful game. The average crowd in Madrid is 76,234 the highest in European football.. Real’s record of nine European Championship titles includes a run of five consecutive wins between 1956 and 1960. Unfortunately it doesn’t happen very often. Their star Lionel Messi recently became the first man to score five goals in a Champions League game and is surely the best player in the World at the moment. It’s a personal selection yours will be different.

1Argentina soccer shirt0 ARGENTINA

English fans have never forgiven Argentina for Diego Maradona and the ‘hand of God’ incident in the 1986 World Cup, where he scored a goal with his hand, but we have a grudging respect for the player who in the same game dribbled past six England playersto score one of the best World Cup Goals ever. For my generation the United shirt evokes memories of the Munich air crash (I was very young but it helped to make the legend) a team destroyed, re-built by Sir Matt Busby then victorious that famous night at Wembley. is Nike’s biggest seller. We are still pinching ourselves over England’s 5-1 Munich victory in 2001 but the memories evoked by a German football shirt are mostly unhappy ones.

England Change Shirt8 ENGLAND

The proper England football shirt is white but the red change shirt reminds us of that special day at Wembley when, with the help of a Russian linesman, we beat the Germans and lifted the World Cup for the only time in our history. United’s 75,000 average attendance suggests a good number are going through the turnstiles but the jibes about Cockney Reds and more United supporters coming from London than Manchester still fly. George Best dominated the world stage as he was meant to and Bobby Charlton and Matt Busby, both subsequently knighted for their efforts, were in tears. Plenty of teams play in blue but the all blue football kit is distinctively Chelsea. The yellow and green Brazilian football shirt is the shirt of Pele, Garrincha, of Ronaldo (not Real’s the other one!) and of Rivelino. It’s more important than that.” But there are tragic memories of Liverpool too; the Hillsborough tragedy and the Heyschel Stadium disaster. Every England win is celebrated as the dawn of a new era and every defeat as a national tragedy

Japan: Aftermath of tsunami-like floods that left at least 3 dead and 23 missing [Photos]

Most of the bags were recovered undamaged and none of the contents – which were from an area with low levels of radioactive contamination – had leaked, the Environment Ministry said.

. Helicopters crisscrossed skies over the largely rural town of Osaki, 350km north of Tokyo, which was inundated by the Shibui river.

Japan storm Etau floodsAn aerial view of the town of Osaki in Miyagi prefecture, flooded by the Shibui riverKyodo/ReutersJapan storm Etau floodsA rescuer and local residents walk through floodwaters from the burst Shibui river in Osaki, Miyagi PrefectureJiji Press/AFP

The flooding did not reach nuclear reactors damaged in the 2011 disaster in Fukushima but at least 30 bags filled with suspected radioactive grass and other contaminated material were swept away from a site where they were being stored in a nearby town. Two eight-year-old children are among the missing as the flooding spread north to Miyagi prefecture, whose coastline was ravaged by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

Some parts of Japan received more than twice the usual September amount of rain in 48 hours, sparking some of the worst flooding in more than 60 years. At least 28 people were injured, eight seriously. The waters are slowly retreating in the worst-hit city of Joso after washing houses away, sometimes with their owners still inside, in scenes reminiscent of a tsunami.

Santi Cazorla: Arsenal can challenge for big titles

His incredible skill and unparalleled two-footed ability, not to mention recording a goal almost every four games, has won over the fans’ hearts and earned him a lofty spot on their song sheet.

The honor of being club captain was — surprisingly to him, but unsurprisingly to others — bestowed upon him several times over the course of the season, including during some testing times when both skipper Mikel Arteta and his deputy Per Mertesacker were out injured.

“The first time that the gaffer told me I would be captain, I was honestly a bit surprised,” Cazorla said with a proud smile.

“I didn’t think he would choose me, but it’s a responsibility you have to the rest of the squad. I do my best to contribute when I’m the captain and be a point of reference to the rest of the squad.”

The 30-year-old’s improvement as a player and flexibility to play in a number of positions has partly been down to a man he once thought of as something of a divine being.

“When you arrive at a club like Arsenal and you see the boss, who has been here for so many years, he appears almost like a god,” Cazorla said of the 65-year-old Frenchman, who became Arsenal manager in 1996.

“But soon you realize he’s a simple man, a trainer who is very close to his players and he makes them feel very comfortable.

“That is what I found the most impressive when I first arrived at the club.”

If there is one man who doesn’t hold Wenger in high esteem, it is Jose Mourinho. “He has given us so much and a big increase in quality.

“He is a player that wants to better himself every day. However, with this success, and the signing of Chelsea’s talismanic goalkeeper Petr Cech, some see the power shifting from the blue side of London to the red.

With Wenger finally breaking his duck against “The Special One,” this could be the season Arsenal finally ends its long wait for a Premier League title.

. Failure to beat major rivals in crunch clashes has left Arsene Wenger’s side without a domestic championship since 2004, while the Gunners have not gone past the second round of the UEFA Champions League for the past five seasons.

But that is about to change, according to the London team’s Spanish midfield maestro Santi Cazorla.

“I don’t think we are inferior to the Spanish clubs or Bayern Munich. I am happy with the season I had, I felt very comfortable, but for this to be Alexis’ first season at Arsenal, he needs the (player of the season) prize.”

Cazorla himself has enjoyed a rise to prominence as one of the Arsenal faithful’s favorite players during his three years at the club, and last week the former Villarreal, Recreativo and Malaga man committed to a new contract. “We need to be at that level if we want to dispose of Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City.

“We need to be there to fight for the title, and regularly maintaining a high level is something that we have lacked, but the second part of the season proves that we can do it.”

Sat in a small room overlooking the Emirates’ impeccable pitch, Cazorla’s smile and charisma are infectious. “He transmits a lot of ambition and as well as being an incredible footballer, his enthusiasm — and just being the person he is — is contagious to the rest of the team.

“It has helped the team reach a completely different level.”

Cazorla was flattered when Wenger chose him as his player of the season, but the diminutive Spaniard was quick to pass on the compliment to the player he felt it was more befitting.

“For me it has to be Alexis,” he said. The pair have had several very public spats over the course of their careers, including one occasion in October 2014 when they nearly came to blows on the touchline.

Prior to Sunday’s Community Shield victory, Wenger hadn’t recorded a win over his Portuguese rival in 13 attempts. It’s true that they are very powerful teams and it is very difficult to compete with them,” Cazorla told CNN ahead of the new Premier League season, which kicks off this weekend.

“In recent years they have all won the Champions League and are favorites when they face English teams.

“But I think we are very strong too and can be at that level next season.”

Arsenal begins its 2015-16 campaign at home to West Ham on Sunday, buoyed by a rare victory over Premier League champion Chelsea in last weekend’s Community Shield curtain-raiser.

Wenger’s men lost just twice in the last 18 league games of last season, which saw them climb from sixth to third but still finish 12 points behind Chelsea, while they also successfully defended the FA Cup.

“We need to play to the same level that we were at for the second half of the season,” Cazorla said. When he tells you Arsenal will be competing domestically and internationally next season, you can’t help but believe him.

The team’s improved showing during the last campaign was thanks largely in part to one of Wenger’s marquee signings.

“Extremely energetic, contagious enthusiasm and very ambitious.”

No prizes for guessing which Arsenal player Cazorla is talking about.

He may have been halfway across the world at the Copa America, scoring the penalty that won his country its first international trophy, but the eulogizing of Chile star Alexis Sanchez back in London never stopped.

“Alexis is a player that transmits a lot of energy,” Cazorla said of the former Barcelona forward, who was Arsenal’s top scorer with 16 league goals

Bayern Munich sign Arturo Vidal from Juventus

Arturo.”

“We want to write history and win a [Bundesliga record] fourth consecutive league title. “It was Leverkusen who clearly turned down what was a better offer from us at the time purely because they didn’t want Vidal to continue playing in the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich.”

German tabloid Bildreported Vidal is set to earn an annual salary of 10m.

“I am ready,” Vidal said during his unveiling.

“I wanted to take another big step forward in my career. Always a Juventino at heart. I would like to wish you the best luck in the world and I promise you will always be in my heart. He’s got two good feet, he’s a strong player, his technical abilities are good, he often scores the opening goal and he is tactically flexible. I think the best opportunity to do so is with Bayern.

Juventus confirmed via a statement to their investors that they received a fee of 37m from the sale of Arturo Vidal to Bayern Munich. I want to keep developing as a player and win important trophies like the Champions League. We need protagonists, who have already achieved that. I have developed. He embodies a winner by the way he plays.”

Vidal, who has 69 caps for Chile, won four consecutive Serie A titles and one Coppa Italia, as well as helping the club reach May’s Champions League final, where they were beaten by Barcelona.

Vidal had been a target for the Bavarians when he joined Juve from Bayer Leverkusen for 12.5min 2011, and Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge strongly criticised the player at the time for opting to move to Turin.

It could rise by a further 3 million “based on the achievement of certain sporting objectives.”

“I’m very happy,” Vidal told Bayern’s official website. He embodies it,” Sammer said of Vidal, who won four Serie A titles during his four years at Juventus.

“I don’t think I have to change my style of play. This amount will be payable over the next two years.

Sammer said that Bayern had kept the tabs on Vidal even before his switch from Colo Colo to Bayer Leverkusen in 2007, and praised the Chile international for his winning mentality.

He scored 10 goals, set up a further 11 and helped Leverkusen to a second-place finish in 2011, before leaving Bayer for Juve after 117 Bundesliga games.

The ESPN FC crew discuss Arturo Vidal’s move to Bayern Munich and the impact he will have at the Allianz Arena under Pep Guardiola. That has to be the target.”

Vidal has signed a contract until 2019 and it contains an option for another year, sporting executive Matthias Sammer told reporters during the unveiling of the Chile international in Munich on Tuesday.

However, Rummenigge said earlier this month that he had been given false information, telling reporters: “The message we were given was that the player didn’t want to come, but that’s not true..

Bayern Munich have confirmed the signing of Arturo Vidal from Juventus after agreeing a 37 million fee with the Serie A champions.

The youngster was played as a defensive midfielder in his first three years at the club, before being moved into a more attacking role by then Leverkusen coach Jupp Heynckes.

“Thanks for these four fantastic years together. I hope we can pull it off with Bayern. I want to help the team and win trophies. I have developed it further in Italy, and will also show my physical strength in Bundesliga,” he said.

The midfielder, reported to have cost up to 37m, could make his debut in the German Supercup against Wolfsburg on Saturday.

The Chile international added on the news conference: “Back then I opted for Juventus because of my language and my family. “This is a new step in my career and I hope I do well here. I am now ready to wear the Bayern Munich jersey.”

Vidal had joined Leverkusen for 5.6m in 2007 after winning back-to-back titles at Colo Colo in his native Chile.

The former world class player added: “Complexity is his middle name. It’s a dream come true for me personally.

Bayern had already announced that Vidal was set to join and the 28-year-old has now completed the switch after a successful medical.

He also picked up several yellow and red cards, but Vidal believes that the time in Italy helped him cultivate his style so that he does not need to fear the German referees.

Vidal also posted a message to the Juve fans on his Twitter account, which read: “It’s a very special day and I want to send heartfelt greetings to all the Juventus fans in the world.

“We [Juve] weren’t a long way off winning all three competitions last season
