Premier League: Drogba, Malouda, Berbatov Head Golden Boot Roster

Didier Drogba’s goal for Chelsea against Arsenal on Sunday was his sixth of the ongoing Premier League season, and the strike helped the Ivorian draw level with teammate Florent Malouda and United’s Dimitar Berbatov as joint top-scorer in the competition.

Drogba got the first hat-trick of the Premiership season on its opening day playing at home against West Brom. Chelsea won that match 6-0. Thereafter, the Ivorian has had three goals in six matches, in all of which he started for the Stamford Bridge squad.

Interestingly, all of Drogba’s goals have come in home matches, one each against Stoke City, Blackpool and Arsenal, games that Ancelotti’s squad won 2-0, 4-0 and 2-0, respectively.

Like Drogba, Malouda opened his scoring account in Chelsea’s season opener against Albion, in which he found the back of the rival net twice.

But unlike Drogba, Malouda has not restricted his scoring to home matches. His third goal came in Chelsea’s 6-0 away win against Wigan, his fourth came in the home match against Stoke City, his fifth and sixth in the home game with Blackpool on September 19.

Also, unlike Drogba, Malouda has not been in the starting eleven in every match. In fact, in the West Ham match on September 11, the Frenchman came on as a late second half substitute in the 84th minute.

Berbatov has been Manchester United’s saviour this season, with Wayne Rooney’s truancy giving the Bulgarian an opportunity to prove that the Old Trafford squad are not a one-man outfit, centred around Rooney.

Berbatov began his scoring, with a strike in United’s opener at Old Trafford against Newcastle on August 15. He did not add to his tally, in the next game with Fulham, played away at Craven Cottage. The Bulgarian striker’s second goal of the season came in his team’s 3-0 win at home against West Ham, on August 28.

Berbatov’s next goal came in the away game against Everton, that ended in a 3-3 draw, followed by a hat-trick against Liverpool. His third goal came in injury time, ensuring that United banked full points from that match.

Berbatov’s exclusion from the starting eleven in the away match against Sunderland has raised more than a few eyebrows. But following Sir Alex’s refusal to talk to the media after the Liverpool match where the media went to town over the United manager’s comment on Torres, nobody is able to discuss the rationale of Fergie’s team selection, with the big man.

Sunderland’s Darren Bent and Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez have both scored five goals each this season, and are hot on the heels of the top three, in contention for the Golden Boot.

Behind the Face of a Football Genius

Although I can’t consider myself a football fan, it seems virtually impossible to escape World Cup fever. Especially after the ‘head-butting’ incident involving Zinedine Zidane, which dominated the sports pages. Even someone like me, who isn’t really that interested in football, was drawn into the storyline that played out following the finals.

The dominant question on many people’s minds seemed to be this: Why would an illustrious, talented footballer ruin his curtain call and retirement from the world stage at the most prestigious event in football history, with an ignominious red card for a head-butt? Never mind what was said to Zidane – the Question many sports journalists, fans and non-fans alike were wondering about was: What on earth made him do it?

So, let’s take a look at the BaZi AKA Destiny Code of the talismanic Zinedine Zidane, to see if we can understand why he saw red on the Finals Day.

What a person is reluctant to reveal about himself, can always be deciphered from his Destiny Code. A person’s BaZi tells us not just who we perceive him to be, but who he really is. The Heavenly Stems, which form the top half of a person’s Destiny Code, represent the immediate, the obvious, the surface personality, that which we perceive of the person, when we first meet him. But to truly know what a person is like, we must delve beyond the surface. So, let’s take a look at Zidane’s Destiny Code.

Zidane’s BaZi reveals a formation known as Shang Guan Qi Sha or Hurting Officer controls Seven Killings Formation. This is a formation that is typically found in outstanding martial artists (Bruce Lee’s chart for example has a similar formation) and also individuals with unique physical abilities. Since there are not that many martial artists today, this formation is usually applied in the context of sports, since sports is a physical art form. It is this structure that gives Zidane his magic touch with the football. The chart shows two types of Fire formations, indicating that he can strike the ball equally well with both his right and left legs. As his Day Master is seated on a Seven Killing star, this indicates quick reflexes, charisma, as well as the presence of a good ‘killer instinct’ – hence, his cool and calm demeanour when taking penalties! It also shows that he has strong leadership qualities.

The strong Hurting Officer, which is represented by the element of Bing or Yang Fire, usually marks the individual as one who does not like to be controlled and is impulsive. Hence, it indicates challenges when it comes to playing in a team-based sport like football and problems for coaches in controlling him. Persons with strong Hurting Officers are also highly individualistic, and have strong showmanship skills. In the study of BaZi, Bing Fire is the fire of the sun, and carries with it qualities such as beauty, passion, intensity, brilliance and magnanimity, all which are hallmarks of Zidane’s style of play – the little touches, the acrobatic dazzling he-makes-it-look-easy ball-acrobatics he pulls off, and his ability to not only score goals, but assist in goals being scored.

When one has Bing Fire as the Hurting Officer star, the person is typically short-tempered and impulsive. Furthermore, Zidane’s Hurting Officer star sits on Yang Ren or Goat Blade, which means it is a very intense, hot and explosive Hurting Officer star. Hence he has been sent off 14 times in his career, including once for stamping on a player during a World Cup match, and on another occasion for head-butting, while playing for his club, Juventus. He also holds the dubious record of being one of the four players to have been sent off in a World Cup Final in the history of the World Cup.

So what made Zidane see red at this World Cup, when he knew that it would be his last international match? This year being the year of Bing Xu or Fire Dog, the Fire is extremely hot. So, his Hurting Officer, which is already extremely strong, becomes excessively strong. When an element is overwhelmingly strong, its negative qualities usually come out or feature prominently. When a Hurting Officer star becomes negative, the person becomes petulant, rebellious and has too much fighting spirit.

Also, the interaction between his current 10 year luck pillar of Geng Xu and the annual pillar of Bing Xu reveals a formation known as Hurting Officer sees Officer (Shang Guan Jian Guan), which denotes chaos, irrational and excessively emotional behaviour, problems with authority, and going against the accepted order of things. In addition, there is also a Harm formation between the Xu (Dog) of the year, the Xu (Dog) in his 10 year luck pillar, and the You (Rooster) in his BaZi. This Harm formation denotes a lack of peace or an inner anger.

His Yi Wood Day Master needs Gui Water to help it grow, and wet Ji Earth, found in the Chou or Ox, to pacify the heat, and enable the Earth to grow. Gui Water is the Resource Star, and also represents the Mother whilst Ji Earth is the Wealth Star, which also represents the wife. Both these elements are important to this Yi Wood Day Master. What exactly was said to him that provoked him remains the subject of debate but from Zidane’s BaZi, certainly any insult about his mother or his wife, would probably have triggered his temper, based on his BaZi!

This raises an important point about BaZi that often gets overlooked. In the past, BaZi was designed to reveal fate and destiny. It was unchanged. The path that was laid out was essentially the path that would be walked. Today, we do not perceive BaZi in this way. Destiny is but one of the possible paths a person can walk. Destiny can, to some degree be changed. In the old days, a heart attack was a death sentence. Today, if you know about it early enough, it can be prevented and treated. The power of free will, the advantage of informed choice, and the ability to make an informed decision, means that how a person lives their life, remains in their hands.

What does this mean in the case of Zinedine Zidane? Admittedly, Zidane’s BaZi indicates how he would react to a provocation and that his reaction would bring about negative outcomes. But, at that moment, at the 110th minute on that pitch in Berlin, ultimately, Zidane held his destiny, in his own hands – or rather, head.

The Power of the Officer

Despite being sent-off, Zidane was awarded the Golden Ball Award and so far, there seems to be no vilification of him in his home country for what he did. Why? His current 10 year luck pillar shows strong Officer Luck as a result of the combination between his Yi Wood Day Master, and Geng Metal, so he will still continue to command respect and honour as the Officer represents good status and reputation. This head-butt will not tarnish his reputation substantially, nor detract from his skills and talents. Xu (Dog) is the graveyard for Xin Metal, which is the Seven Killings Star. Seven Killings represents critics, petty people and detractors. These will eventually go away as the year goes on so they will not prove to be a long-term problem. The indications of his chart are that he’ll probably get to keep the Golden Ball award as well.

According to Wikipedia, Zidane earned a 6.4 million euros salary at Real Madrid, and in 2005-2006, he earned 8.6 million euros from sponsorship and endorsement deals. This is also in tune with his 10 year luck pillar of Geng Xu, which he entered in 2005. Geng Metal and Yi Wood, which is his day Master, are combining with the Officer. This typically represents strong sponsorship and endorsement opportunities for a sportsman, whilst the Xu (Dog) brings strong Wealth Luck. In this luck pillar, an ambassadorial role for Zidane is ideal and he should also have no problems with endorsements. All he has to do is say yes, and his wealth should be secure until 2015. He will be wise to stay away from coaching or management opportunities as his BaZi indicates he lacks the patience to coach or manage a football team.

Charisma has a Face

It is not uncommon for BaZi practitioners and even Feng Shui practitioners, to rely on face reading or Mian Xiang, as a back-up discipline. There have been times when I have used face-reading for quick or on the spot evaluations of a client’s luck, when a BaZi chart was not available. The face, almost always, confirms what we already know from the Destiny Code. So what story does Zidane’s face tell? If you look closely at his face, you will notice that his eyebrows pierce upwards, at the ‘head’ (the end closer to the centre of the face). In Mian Xiang, these are known as Spear-headed eyebrows and denote individuals who are highly opinionated and quick off the mark. Usually, individuals with Spear-headed eyebrows also have prominent or strong Hurting Officer (Shang Guan) nature.

Zidane has strong, high and outward growing cheekbones – these denote strong leadership and a charismatic nature. He has sharp, pointed eyes which indicate impatience, but an eye for detail, hence his ability to create possibilities on the football field, out of seemingly nothing at all.

In Mian Xiang, each year of a person’s life is represented by a single point on the face. The ages of 27-30 are represented by the temples, the life palace or Yin Tang, which is located between the eyebrows, and the Forest, which is the area above the ear. On Zidane’s face, all these areas are sunken or the hairline crosses these areas, denoting that these years are less favourable. However, once Zidane entered eyebrow luck, at 31 years old (30 by Western age calculations), his luck clearly took a turn for the better. His eyebrows are clear and charismatic, not too thick and upward growing. Indeed, in 2002, Zidane won the UEFA Champions League Most Valuable Player award, and transferred from Juventus to Real Madrid for a record 66 million euros. At 35, he has just finished eyebrow luck and entered eye luck – which means that whilst his luck will still be good, the best is probably behind him, so his decision to retire is a wise one indeed.

The Most Popular Liverpool FC Merchandise

There is no doubt that Liverpool FC is one of the truly great soccer clubs of the world. Admittedly in recent years they may not have dominated the game in the way they did in the 1970s but the truth is that they have always made their impact felt at the highest level of European soccer.

And so it is hardly surprising that Liverpool has thousands of ardent fans scattered all over the world. Many of these fans never lose a single opportunity to feel closer to their club. One way of doing this is by getting hold player’s shirts and other playing kits and memorabilia that can easily be found in stores selling Liverpool merchandise.

Actually there is a very wide range of different stuff that you can buy. Even with the team shirts you will have to choose between the shirts the boys usually wear for their home games and what they would ordinary don for away matches. Or if you are a really serious fan you can make sure that you get both the strips.

As is the case with other soccer clubs, Liverpool FC player’s shirts are amongst the most popular merchandise that fans look to own so as to identify themselves with this great soccer club. There are even fans who purchase the complete team set right up to the goalkeeper.

Liverpool merchandise can also be a great idea if you need to get a gift for somebody whom you already know is a fan of the club. However it may be a good idea to start by finding out what memorabilia they already have so that you do not end up getting them something that they got a long time ago.

Another Liverpool item that is wildly popular are the hats if you have watched Liverpool games on TV you may have noticed what most fans like wearing. The most popular hats are called the beanies and will usually be decorated with the Liverpool colours and may sometimes even have the names of players and shirt numbers they usually wear.

Fans usually prefer to have the names of Liverpool legends on these hats. One such Liverpool soccer player who is a true legend is Steve Gerard. Although at a tender age he even had a trial with Manchester United, Gerard ended up signing his first professional soccer contract with Liverpool. The amazing thing is that in his first season he always looked pretty nervous and not the kind of player who would make any impact at Anfield. But in the 2000-2001 season Gerard exploded. Not only did he score 10 goals but he was clearly a very key member of the team that ended up winning both the FA cup and were also UEFA champions.

Who can forget Gerard’s enormous contribution to that sensational Champions league victory where Liverpool came from behind having conceded 3 goals by half time and ended up winning. This determined player won man of the match then.

And so you will understand when Liverpool fans seem to be crazy about Gerard wearing all kinds of team memorabilia and Liverpool merchandise that has his name or shirt number on it.
