Soccer Ball- An ageless entertainment

It is stated that will thousands of years ago, South American Indians kicked an elasticized ball for entertaining already. They will used issues such as minds, skulls, stitched up pig and cloth or cow bladders. The Chinese language played “tsu chu” where animal skin balls have been dribbled via gaps within the net stretched in in between two poles.

The real football ball only emerged soon after a small number of thousands of years. Ancient Egyptian rituals are said to have commonalities with best soccer ball, and both the ancient Greeks and Romans played a game that entailed carrying and kicking a ball also.

The particular much more irregular the bladders used as balls are already, the more unforeseen was its behaviour. Right after Charles Goodyear trademarked vulcanized rubber, he created the first rubber football basketball (football). It was only within the twentieth century that rubberized bladders have been began to end up being utilized in most balls. Within 1862 Lindon developed among the initial rubber bladders intended for balls, inspired since of the ill effects of blowing animal bladders probably, following their wife died of lung disease.

Achilles heel dilemma sidelines Lehmann

Well, it looks like our earlier poll is now moot, with Arsenal boss Arsenal Wenger this evening confirmed that keeper Jens Lehmann will miss at least the next three games having picked up an injury during Germany’s victory over England on Wednesday night.

Mad Jens apparently aggravated an Achilles tendon injury that he has been nursing for some time. The setback effectively forces Wenger’s hand in bringing in a replacement goalie following Lehmann’s embarrassing howlers in the first two league matches of the season.

Le Prof revealed, “Jens is out and he will miss two weeks, I think. Maybe more, I don’t know. He is going to see a specialist in Germany on Friday. He had this injury before, but it got much worse.”

Lehmann put in yet another patchy performance during his international duty at Wembley, but nothing as bad as the blunders that resulted in Arsenal gifting goals to Fulham on the opening day of the new campaign and Blackburn on Sunday – the only two goals Arsenal have conceded this season.

Wenger will now be pondering who to give the call as Lehmann’s replacement – Manuel Almunia or summer signing Lukasz Fabianski? Arsene, if you’re in any doubt, we’ll post up a new poll on who the Arensal Pies regulars think should replace Jens in a jiffy.

Columbus Crew Announces “Massive” Rebranding Initiative

At a press conference this morning, Columbus Crew Imperial Wizard of Public Relations, Heinrich Heydrich unveiled a new logo that he says will “better align the team with its core fan base.”

When asked if he felt the new logo might alienate minorities, Heydrich responded “well, we tried throwing bananas at them, we tried yelling at them, if this doesn’t send the message I frankly don’t know what will.”

Edit: I’ve been informed by some readers that they have taken offense with this post. Although it was intended to be satire I can see where they are coming from and would like to apologize. I sincerely did not mean to offend any Klansmen by linking them to the Columbus Crew fan base.

Who would you like to see as our last form of defence on Saturday?

Earlier on today we ran a poll on who you would like to see in goal for Arsenal when we take on league leaders Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium this weekend.

That choice just got easier, as Arsene Wenger revealed this evening that Jens Lehmann will be out of action for at least a fortnight after tweaking a long standing Achilles injury.

Prior to that disclosure, however, you’d already voted Lehmann as your third choice goalie. When the poll was closed down, Spaniard Manuel Almunia had pulled in 38% of the votes, Polish international Lukasz Fabianski had attracted 33% of your votes and Mad Jens was languishing in last place with 29%.

Now you have just two keepers to choose from, so all loyalty to our German stopper can, temporarily at least, go out the window.

The poll, brought to you by our friends at, could not be simpler to use. Choose who you would like to see as Arsenal’s goalkeeper on Saturday, click the corresponding button, and Robert is your father’s brother.

No excuses, even if you’re feeling a bit lethargic, a click of the mouse is all it takes. The poll closes at 4.30pm BST tomorrow and we’ll publish the results thereafter.
