      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Sol Campbell played for Tottenham Hotspur for roughly 10 years, which he played well throughout his time with Spurs. At Spurs he made a great impact and slowly but surely became a great football player and then he decided he wanted to enhance his career further by joining Tottenham’s rivals Arsenal. I feel that his move to Arsenal will enhance his career because lets face it Arsenal are a better side then Tottenham and have better players that Sol can learn more off. I feel he is a World class player and can only get better. He has a lot of talent and has so far used it to his own advantage. Sol Campbell has a lot of pace and hardly any strikers will beat him in a race. He has a lot of power to beat opponents in the air as well as in a chase for the ball. He has quite a good vision for his own team mates because he seems to pick them out with a lot of long balls and it rarely misses his target. Sol looks comfortable on the ball and bringing it out of defence and he generally looks confident when over strikers are hassling for the ball. Overall he is a top class player and I feel he will go to the World cup and shine because of his great talent.

        Disadvantages

        I recently visited Old Trafford and I have to say it is one of the best stadiums I have visited. The stadium is truly awesome and breathtaking. It can hold well over 50,000 supporters but it feels more like 100,000 with the atmosphere there is. You walk outside the stadium and it looks pretty impressive and then you go in and it hits you, 45,000+ Manchester United fans roaring on their team, it is incredible frightening and this was only against Derby. The stadium itself has various luxury features including under soil heating, Bars, Restaurants and loads of executive boxes for companies, which is an added bonus if they are doing any deals with the companies. The seats on every stand are comfortable because it is a pretty modern ground, the toilet facilities are quite good for stadium standards. The stadium also has a screen where you can see all the line-up and match highlights at half time and after the game if you went for a toilet a missed a goal (common re-occurrence at football matches). I have to say that I feel Old Trafford is currently the best stadium in England that is in use.

          I have recently purchased a pair of predator boots, they are the same as the David Beckham ones (the white ones). They are my first purchase of predator boots ever and boy do they cost a lot of money. I paid £100 for these boots and that is a con but I brought them and this is why. They are the most comfortable boots I have ever used and I had them custom made so they fitted perfectly. They make you play better because it is psychological because if you think you have really good boots that you might think make you play better then it does if you believe it, I am not saying they make you play the best in the world but they do make you play a little bit better. Another reason why they make you play better is because they are so comfortable and you don’t have to keep worrying about whether they will give you blisters or whether they are going to tear, so it keeps you more on your game and less on your boots. Another reason why they were such a good but expensive purchase is because they give you extra curl and bend on the ball because of the way the football boots are made. Overall an excellent product from Adidas

            Return to Castle Wolfenstein is set in a German camp and you have to go along killing nazi’s in an attempt to get information on what the German’s strategy is in the war, it is based on World War 2 and you basically have to win the war. It is a really realistic game that has great effects and sounds that sound real. The detail on the German soldiers is brilliant and you can see all the features on their face if you go up close. All the guns are good and work to good effect when used. Another good thing that makes this game better than most other shoot em up games is the fact that when you shoot someone in the head they actually die and it does not take like five shots in the head to kill someone. The best part of the game is when you get to use a tank because it is easier to kill people in a tank and they can not easily kill you because you are very well protected. Extra bonus on the game as well because you get to kill nazi’s and I feel that is a good thing. It is an easily addictive game and once you get into it you have to keep playing until you are finished although it does take a long time to complete so beware. I feel this game is quite expensive but is value for money.

              The Worthington cup this year will be one by one of these four teams: Tottenham Hotspurs, Chelsea, Blackburn Rovers or Sheffield Wednesday. I feel all three of these teams have a good chance of winning the cup but personally I feel Chelsea have the best chance. The two semi-finals are Blackburn playing Sheffield Wednesday and Tottenham are playing Chelsea, the games consist of two legs, one to be played at the home venue and one to be played at the away venue. Here is what I think each teams chances are in this cup and the results so far between these teams from the first leg. Sheffield Wednesday I feel they are the outsiders with a slim chance to win against Blackburn because they lost the first leg at home 2-1 but you never know their could be an upset. I feel even if they get through against Blackburn they will not win the final against whoever wins the other game. They are outsiders because they are in the first division struggling and the other three teams left are in the Premiership. Blackburn Rovers I personally feel they should easily beat Sheffield Wednesday because they are the Premiership team and have the upper hand from the first leg. Blackburn have a good chance of winning this cup if they get through to the final because they have already matched both Tottenham and Chelsea like for like when they have played them in the Premiership. Tottenham Hotspurs I feel Tottenham will not make it through to the final because of this 12 year period where they haven’t beaten Chelsea is hanging over them and they will not be able to cope with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, if Hasselbaink is playing Tottenham will not get through to the final but if he is not playing then they will probably make it through to the final. If they do get into the final and play Blackburn then they will probably get beat, but if they get through and Sheffield Wednesday get through then I feel Tottenham will be league cup holders 2002 Chelsea Beat Tottenham 2-1 in the first leg at home but now face a tough game at Tottenham to get through to the final. I feel they will make it to the final and win the competition if there are no major injuries for the game against Tottenham. They will face either Blackburn or Sheffield Wednesday if they get to the final and that shouldn’t be a problem beating either of these teams. So overall I feel Chelsea will win the Worthington cup and get into Europe if everything runs smoothly.

                Fulham have a good team that performs well when everyone is pulling their weight. They have a few very good players like Edwin Van Der Saar and Luis Saha who seem to perform well every game. I feel Fulham will consolidate their position in the league this season which would be a good start to their first top flight season in so many years. They have the potential to do well with a great coach/manager and are never in need of some more cash because their chairman is pretty wealthy. Their stadium needs updating to a bigger capacity if they really want some big bucks to spend on players which is apparently being negotiated at the moment. They seem to have good ground staff because their pitch always looks in top condition. Overall out of the three teams that came up to the Premiership Fulham will finish the highest. They may even have a little cup run but will not end up winning anything this season.

                  Disadvantages

                  TEAM Newcastle United have a really strong team this season compared to the last few seasons and I feel they have a good chance of making an impact on the Premiership. Newcastle United have enough class and poise to finish in the top six and get into Europe but I feel they are a few players short of becoming real title contenders. I also feel that they do have some really good players in the side that can change the course of a game, players like Kieran Dyer, Craig Bellamy and Alan Shearer, who are all outstanding. GROUND I have visited Newcastle United ground a fair few times for league matches and FA cup matches and I have to say it is a tremendous ground. The ground can seat well over 40,000 when full up and has under soil heating which is essential for Premiership football. The ground also has various bars around it where you can buy snacks and the drinks which is ideal at half time. STAFF Newcastle’s manager is Bobby Robson who I think has done a wonderful job as a manager over the past decade or so for other clubs and over the last year or so has done a wonderful job at Newcastle, but I feel it is time he quits because he is getting old and he deserves a rest. Newcastle also have some other good staff at their club including the other coaching staff and medical team who have done a good job on getting Keiran Dyer back to full fitness. I feel personally that the ground staff haven’t done a good job this season because they have all the tools to help them keep the pitch in order but the pitch is in a right mess. FINANCE Newcastle don’t seem to have the money to match the likes are Manchester United and Arsenal because they haven’t done to well other the last few years, but still done pretty well. If they keep up their high gate receipts this should make the club richer and then they will be able to invest in a few top quality players if the players want to come that is. Overall Newcastle should get into Europe for next season and they are coming alone quite well at the moment.

                    Disadvantages

                    I have used various operating systems before including Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98 plus and Windows Millennium Edition. I have to say windows ME is the best operating systems I have used so far for set-up and installation. It is excellent because it has a wider range of system tools including "system restore" which allows you to restore your computer back to an earlier date and this is good because if you have an error one day you can go back say a week and the error will be gone. Windows Millennium Edition also has better and more programs installed on it which are useful to most people, for example it has MSN messenger already installed on it so you don’t have to download it off the Internet, MSN messenger is a program which allows you to talk to your friends online. The only real problem that Windows Millennium has is it always crashes about every six hours and when their are errors on the computer it doesn’t fix them properly it just gives you a blue screen all the time saying either "system halted" or "system unstable" or something like that and you have to keep turning the computer on and off which is rather annoying I find. At first this operating system is pretty good but then it gets worst as you use it. If I was you I wouldn’t buy Windows ME because it is a lot of effort for something that quite frankly isn’t worth the effort, better off getting Windows XP now.

                      Bottom is a comedy that I really enjoy because it makes you laugh nearly all the way through. It is about two men who are really abusive to any one they know and to each other, they are always beating each other up about things that aren’t worth it basically. The two characters in this comedy show are Eddie and Richie, Eddie is a bald man who has a rather serious drinking problem, is obnoxious, really abusive, a thug, sexiest and generally a nuisance and Richie is very much the same but is very much into inflatable dolls and can’t get a girlfriend to save his life. They are both really ugly blokes with little personality. They are always getting into trouble with people because of there laddish ways. The two of them are always scheming to make money but never end up getting much or end up getting beaten up. I have seen all their episodes and films and I think every episode is excellent and all their films are brilliant. If you haven’t seen them on telly before then you are definitely missing out big time. They are two brilliant actors who play their parts very well. They casting crew and writers of bottom are very talented in my opinion and deserve all the praise they get for making such a great programme.

                        Liverpool have a great chance of winning trophies this season due to the current crop of players they have. With Owen scoring from all angles and Anelka coming into the squad the future looks good for Liverpool. They have loads of talented players throughout their team with the likes of Steven Gerrard, John Arne Riise and Michael Owen. They have a brilliant stadium that can hold over 40,000 fans which helps them financially to gain more profit. They also have a excellent youth system that has brought through a few players into the current squad and hopefully many more. Their training ground is state of the art and they also have very good training staff. Liverpool have a really good manager and vice manager that can win trophies for the club as they have proved already. Overall this season I feel Liverpool will finish in the top three and maybe win the Premiership and if they start playing a little more attacking away from home in the champions league they may even get to the final in that competition. I also feel they will get into the semi-final in the FA cup only to lose to an inform Manchester United.

                          This season I feel Chelsea have a good chance to get into the champions league with the class of players they have at the club. They have some excellent defenders like John Terry, Marcel Desially and Mario Melchiot. They also have quite a solid midfield this season with the arrivals of Frank Lampard and Emanuel Petit. There strike force is currently doing very well with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Gudjohnsen banging goals at all angles. For Chelsea to get into the champions league this season they need to start turning the recent draws they keep getting at home into wins. They are financially secure but probably haven’t got enough money to buy many players at the moment because of the high wage bill they have and the fact that they have recently built their stadium, which must have cost a lot of money. I recently went on a tour of Chelsea’s ground and I must say it is quite impressive, the facilities are very good and the ground is in top condition. The changing rooms need improving but that is about it. There is a building on the side of the stadium which is called the Chelsea village and this is where you can stay the night if you wish, it is a hotel with a few restaurants and bars where you can go and have a drink. The Chelsea village makes the stadium look that little bit better then it is. Chelsea coaching staff is excellent and they have a very good manager. They have very good training facilities and a superb youth system. Overall Chelsea this season I feel will finish in the top 5 if not the top 3 in the Premiership and will probably win the FA cup.

                            The millennium stadium is currently the best stadium in Britain. I visited the millennium stadium when Arsenal played Liverpool in the FA cup final and when I was there I read exactly what sort of stadium the millennium one is. It has all sorts of facilities including under soil heating, a retractable roof, retractable grass, hotel within the stadium, restaurants and various other plush facilities. Under soil heating is basically for when the pitch is frosty or has snow on it and the under soil heating just melts the snow or frost off the pitch so there are better playing conditions for the players. Retractable roof is where the roof can be open or closed, so basically you can choose whether you want rain on the pitch, if not you can just close the roof. Retractable grass is there so when the football or rugby isn’t being played then you can have concerts in the ground. What they do is take all the grass up and put wooden pallets on the floor that connect together to give a safe and stable floor for a concert to be staged. It also has restaurants in the stadium and a hotel which is very new thing within football stadiums these days. The stadium can seat up to and over 70,000 people for one football game, impressive.

                              Arsenal have an excellent array of players at their club and if they can keep players like "Henry" and "Viera" happy at the club then they have a good chance of winning trophies in the near future. I feel with Arsene Wenger renewing his contract at Arsenal the players will have more faith in him and will be able to play to their full potential now that they know that they have the trust of their manager. Behind the scenes at Arsenal they have very good ground staff and some of their coaching staff are the best in the world. I feel their chairman needs to put more money into the club although he has already generated a lot of money for the club. Arsenal are quite a rich club in the Premiership and I feel when it comes round to next season they should spend a lot of money on a few world class players to improve their squad even more, if this happens I feel they could dominate English football for the next few years and would win more trophies on the European stage. Arsenal are planning on building a new stadium and what a nice stadium it will be if they build it. I have seen what the stadium will look like on various web sites and it will be a credit to Arsenal football club when or if it is built. Arsenal have a lot of potential to do well in the near future because they also have a brilliant youth system as well as an excellent team

                                I would hardly have named this game "supreme snowboarding" because it is far from being supreme. It is probably the best snowboarding game out for the PC but yet it doesn't live up to it's name. I found this game very difficult to master and whatever you do when you are racing on this game you can't help yourself from falling over because the game was made so poorly, everywhere you go their is a rock to knock you over or the snowboarder doesn't move quick enough to dodge anything. If I was you I wouldn’t even think about buying this game although it is quite cheap. It really isn’t worth getting unless you like to pay for products that simply are not worth buying. The graphics are ok and the set-up of the game is good, but the actual playing of the game is poor. Easy to install and has easy on screen instructions to follow if you get stuck. Many thanks for reading or rating this opinion :)

                                  This song sends out a very positive attitude to young adults and children. It sends out a very good message about getting high on drugs. Basically the message is don’t do it because it will ruin your life. At first people doubted this song because basically it is a really rubbish song but then people started to listen to the lyrics and started to understand exactly why the song was made so you don’t ruin your life because of drugs. I feel this song is targeted at young adults and children and it seems to be a very popular song at the moment in time because it has a quite good beat and the lyrics are excellent. Overall I feel this song is of good quality and it is a change for once to hear a song that is so down to earth and true.
