A total of 187 players, from clubs including Manchester United, Southampton, Swansea City, West Ham United, Hull City, Brighton & Hove Albion, Cardiff City and Sheffield United, were examined by dentists from the International Centre for Evidence-Based Oral Health. Seventy-seven per cent had at least one filling, with the average number being five fillings.
The study also stated that seven per cent of players said that it had affected their training or performance. The results varied at different clubs, with some having very few problems and others a lot more.
Clubs such as West Ham have had major problems with players in the past, which has resulted in improvements in oral hygiene management and education. In 2012, Ravel Morrison was sent home from a West Ham pre-season tour to have seven teeth removed. The bill came to more than ?28,000 and he missed a significant part of the important pre-season preparation period.
At least the investment was worthwhile as he is doing very well with his new set of gnashers! Nor forgetting Carlos Tevez, whose teeth were damaged after a street fight when he was growing up in the violent town of Fuerte Apache, near Buenos Aires, in Argentina. But all these examples were a result of trauma or bad genes, not poor dental health and hygiene. The football study’s author, Professor Ian Needleman, of University College London, previously did a study of 2012 Olympians and found that these athletes’ teeth were in a similar state or even worse. One of the suggested reasons for this high incidence of oral problems in sport is the use of sugary drinks. Yet although two-thirds of the players consumed a sugary drink at least three times a week, this was not found to be significant and no correlation between sugary drinks and tooth decay was found. At our club, the use of isotonic drinks has declined over the past few years, with less players drinking them as fluid replacement.
Many prefer to use plain water or add calorie-free flavouring tablets to improve palatability to the water. Some prefer to use milk-based drinks that have been shown to rehydrate athletes quicker than water.
One idea is that many players grow up in poor communities or developing countries where there is poor dental care and education. The reason why some clubs came out better than others in this study may be due to procedures already in place at the club. And the dentist comes in every month, ensuring problems are dealt with, and players undergo a check-up twice a year.
Reinforcing clear dental health education and guidelines is essential in promoting a player’s oral health and avoiding some of the horrendous problems many of our players suffer.
I have been working in professional football for more than 15 years, operating at the highest level in the Premier League and experiencing the excitement of European nights.
If you don’t know this already, I suggest to check out the importance of vitamin K2(and other fat-soluble vitamins) for bone and teeth health. With TSF due to release a book and plenty of new clues, the speculation is rife once again and there are some new names being banded around.
Lots of people on the guardian mentioned that Dave Kitson fitted all of the descriptions, including a youtube video of him being knocked down by Antonia Valencia which he mentioned (and exaggerated in one of the articles). Another clue which matches up to him which I have seen no other reference to is that of the Dog and Duck pub which he makes mention of a couple of times, and mentions that the manager at his first club also referenced it when talking to players. It’s not Andy Cole because he mentions being taken into the circle of black players when he joined one particular club and how they were racially abused by the little boy of one of the supporters, plus the player is still currently playing and Andy Cole retired a couple of years ago.!
The more I read about Dave Kitson and hear previous interviews (and compare to TSF interview on R4 today), the more I think it could well be him. Kitson also got relegated with Reading on the last day of the 2007-2008 season and then left for Stoke as their record signing. All the other links add up other than the supposed daughter but not seen where he mentions that. I have spent a long, long time researching this, and I am absolutely 100% certain that TSF is Dave Kitson. Interesting to note that on that 2007 Guardian interview Kitson talks about footballers and their washbags. Obviously you can’t discount him because he has a son rather than a daughter, or because he supported a different team as a child, or whatever. Just to add to the above: the tone and language in the very helpful link from the staffordshire paper seems very close to the tsf column. Also we know he is from a small town, Hitchen being one, and his history as per his wiki entry matches his comments about not doing YT at a pro.

Aimed at both the intelligent layman and the professional economist, this book is the most comprehensive and intellectually powerful explanation of the nature and value of laissez-faire capitalism that has ever been written. A leading part of its trenchant economic analysis is a consistent demonstration of the natural harmony of the rational self-interests of all men under capitalism--of businessmen and wage earners, of consumers and producers, of men of all races and nationalities, including immigrants and the native born, and of competitors of all levels of ability--consonances most will find astonishing, given the prevailing misunderstandings of capitalism.
The book's importance and appeal to a general audience are evident in its description of prevailing attitudes toward capitalism and its challenge to learn why they are all completely wrong and the cause of self-destructive political behavior on a massive scale. The Internet, mobile technology, the ubiquity of information and the availability of big data have dramatically increased the speed and impact of success and failure. By utilizing the step-by-step process of strategic prioritization developed in the book, you can rework competitive efforts across markets to benefit your business.

In his bestselling book, the Secret Footballer shocked the world with his no-holds-barred account of life as a professional footballer.
These are stories of players, teams and tactics, banter, fights and escapades, yachts, champagne and girls. The identities of the players are protected, but few will be able to resist trying to guess who told them. The Secret Footballer reveals everything you need to know about the beautiful (and not so beautiful) game, from racism to relegation and from team talks to the slow decline of the goalkeeper.
In Sister Mother Husband Dog, Delia Ephron brings her trademark wit and effervescent prose to a series of autobiographical essays about life, love, sisterhood, movies, and family.
From keen observations on modern living, the joy of girlfriends, and best-friendship, to a consideration of the magical madness and miracle of dogs, to haunting recollections of life with her famed screenwriter mother and growing up the child of alcoholics, Ephron’s eloquent style and voice illuminate every page of this superb and singular work. This book is about a safari adventure to Southern Africa, and is as rich in its history and technical data as it is in its unusually unique extraordinary photography (over 400 of Lars’ outdoor adventure photographs) that the authors have provided along with this wonderful adventure primarily illustrating how ancient San Bushman like hunter-gatherer attitudes influence mankind today and secondly how the global issues of land degradation, water resources, climate, struggles of third world countries, protein shortage, disease, biodiversity, and struggles of conservation affect us, and finally to show that conservation is no longer sufficient for both the survival of wildlife but also Mankind, because in many “conservation” areas wild animals are disappearing and we need animals biodiversity to survive dietary strains as the human population peaks at the end of the 21st century rather than just conservation. They use this word “restorancy” because conservation and conservancy imply maintaining the status quo, however, in so many areas the habitat has been decimated and it is no longer a matter of conserving it but rather the environment needs to be restored and wild animals reintroduced to a restorancy. The authors integrate their adventures and stories including dealing with the Terrible Twelve – lions, leopards, elephants, rhino, buffalo, crocodiles, hippos, sharks, mambas and other snakes, tropical diseases, hyenas, and Homo sapiens. Bruce elaborates on why he hunts, his transition from bird hunter to deer hunter, antelope hunter, and then how when he started hunting elk he found, as in Africa, he needed a guide and more help as part of the hunting process.
The authors have done an excellent job of blending the past and existing problems and the future solutions by exploring the Manger of early Mankind and the influences on this remarkably beautiful continent. And now eleven years later a girl called Terra is about to go to school for the first time. This beautiful volume celebrates one of the twentieth century's most important photographers, Dorothea Lange.

This latest book by Azizi Ali is about wealth building strategies that actually works; not fuzzy stories nor theories from ivory towers. The United States is more vulnerable today than ever before-including during the Great Depression and the Civil War-because the pillars of democracy that once supported a booming middle class have been corrupted, and without them, America teeters on the verge of the next Great Crash. The United States is in the midst of an economic implosion that could make the Great Depression look like child's play. The result is a "for the rich, by the rich" scheme leading to policies that only benefit the highest bidders. However, a backlash is now palpable against the "economic royalists"-a term coined by FDR to describe those hoarding power and wealth-including the banksters, oligarchs, and politicians who have plunged our nation into economic chaos and social instability.
Although we are in the midst of what could become the most catastrophic economic crash in American History, a way forward is emerging, just as it did in the previous great crashes of the 1760s, 1856, and 1929. Thoroughly researched and passionately argued, The Crash of 2016 is not just a roadmap to redemption in post-Crash America, but a critical wake-up call, challenging us to act. Geometry defines the world around us, helping us make sense of everything from architecture to military science to fashion. In The King of Infinite Space, renowned mathematics writer David Berlinski provides a concise homage to this elusive mathematician and his staggering achievements. Zumwalt is a compelling portrait of the controversial military man who is widely regarded as the founder of the modern U.S. During the Vietnam War, Time reporter Pham Xuan An befriended everyone who was anyone in Saigon, including American journalists such as David Halberstam and Neil Sheehan, the CIA's William Colby, and the legendary Colonel Edward Lansdale—not to mention the most influential members of the South Vietnamese government and army.
In Perfect Spy, Larry Berman, who An considered his official American biographer, chronicles the extraordinary life of one of the twentieth century's most fascinating spies. This history deals with the bad girls of England's medieval royal dynasties, the queens who earned themselves a notorious reputation. This study reveals much about the role of the medieval queen and the evolution of the role that led, ultimately, to the reign of Elizabeth I and a new concept of queenship.

With a suitcase full of Jane Austen novels en espanol, Amy Elizabeth Smith set off on a yearlong Latin American adventure: a traveling book club with Jane.
Whether sharing rooster beer with Guatemalans, joining the crowd at a Mexican boxing match, feeding a horde of tame iguanas with Ecuadorean children, or tangling with argumentative booksellers in Argentina, Amy came to learn what Austen knew all along: that we're not always speaking the same language— even when we're speaking the same language. But with true Austen instinct, she could recognize when, unexpectedly, she'd found her own Senor Darcy. All Roads Lead to Austen celebrates the best of what we love about books and revels in the pleasure of sharing a good book— with good friends. This first publication of the letters of one of America’s most consistently admired writers is both an exciting and a significant literary event.
The 566 letters collected here, nearly 20 percent of the total, range from the funny (and mostly misspelled) reports of life in Red Cloud in the 1880s that Cather wrote as a teenager, through those from her college years at the University of Nebraska, her time as a journalist in Pittsburgh and New York, and during her growing eminence as a novelist. The voice heard in these letters is one we already know from her fiction: confident, elegant, detailed, openhearted, concerned with profound ideas, but also at times funny, sentimental, and sarcastic.
Representative of the exotic and erotic east, enemy of Christianity, prophet of hedonism, champion of free thinkers, Omar Khayyam and his Ruba’iyyat have been the stuff of legend for centuries. With an Introduction by Robert Giroux, The Complete Stories of Bernard Malamud is "an essential American book," Richard Stern declared in the Chicago Tribune when the collection was published in hardcover. The volume gathers together fifty-five stories, from "Armistice" (1940) to "Alma Redeemed" (1984), and including the immortal stories from The Magic Barrel and the vivid depictions of the unforgettable Fidelman. Inspired by literature’s most haunting love triangle, award-winning author Lynn Cullen delivers a pitch-perfect rendering of Edgar Allan Poe, his mistress’s tantalizing confession, and his wife’s frightening obsession . 1845: New York City is a sprawling warren of gaslit streets and crowded avenues, bustling with new immigrants and old money, optimism and opportunity, poverty and crime.
A beautiful new translation of beloved Chinese author Lao She's masterpiece of social realism, about the misadventures of a poor Beijing rickshaw driver. First published in China in 1937, Rickshaw Boy is the story of Xiangzi, an honest and serious country boy who works as a rickshaw puller in Beijing. One of the most important and popular works of twentieth-century Chinese literature, Rickshaw Boy is an unflinchingly honest, darkly comic look at a life on the margins of society and a searing indictment of the philosophy of individualism.

This practical guide takes a critical look at the business analyst's role as the ultimate problem solver in both the business and development communities when there is a problem. Since I'm doing all three roles, what is the difference between the project manager, the systems analyst, and the business analyst? Is it necessary to provide cost justification such as an ROI for projects, and if so, how do you do it? Being a business analyst means you are the center of change in your organization, and that's a dangerous place to be without a map, or at least a good plan of action.
The Secret Footballer has been providing snapshots and opinion on football for 18 months, and the frequent articles with The Guardian have kept people guessing at the identity of the man behind the series. In July, The Guardian secured the global rights to produce a book by The Secret Footballer and it has been one of the most hotly anticipated ahead of its release this week. Thanks to the good folk at The Guardian, we have a review copy on its way in the post and can’t wait to sit down and read what is no doubt an excellent insight in to modern football. But this is where academies can come in useful, too, as frequently it’s the parents who need educating.
I've had both the pleasure and pain of working with various managers, coaches and players, all with their own ideas and philosophies. I believe ensuring an adequate intake of those would go a long way in preventing teeth problems.
Never played for Man Utd and in the book he says things like he’s been stopped in the street and parents say their kids want to be him.
Book mentions a fallout with a manager slating him in the press, then SF got revenge in a paper.. He was known for some pretty bizarre behaviour like throwing buckets of cold water over the players before games and was sacked after falling out with the chairman despite being their most successful manager.
Maybe this was the period when he suffered depression as his performance level certainly dropped to the point of being unrecognisable as the player he was at Reading. In the column regarding relegation TSF mentions that during that relegation season a poor headed clearance of his was volleyed straight back in for a goal.
I can’t find any reference to Dave Kitson being captainy at any of his clubs, am I missing something or does this rule him out as TSF ? I found a gem of an article that gives it all away, but I will wait for you all to find it, to make it more interesting. Then you have just a few days ago TSF answering question in the Guardian, and he also seems bothered by these washbags.
Was worried it was just going to be all the articles he wrote one after the other but he’s gone to the trouble of updating, joining together and talking around the pieces he wrote previously.
Details like that are bound to be changed to try to hide the identity, plus he may well have added in a few anecdotes that actually happened to other players as if they happened to him. I expect a few choice French expressions to be written about Mess(e)rs Dunne, Collins and Ireland. He is the god of storms and thunder, who rides to war in a chariot pulled by goats, and who is fated to fall in battle with the Midgard Serpent during Ragnarok, the end of all things. It not only contains the names of hundreds of Greek and Roman gods and goddesses, it has accounts of the societies peoples and writings of eternal scholars and authors and their lifetimes. Initiated by archaeologists in Greece and the eastern Mediterranean, the network drew on scholars’ personal contacts and knowledge of languages and terrain.
Often mistaken for mild-mannered professors and scholars, such archaeologists as University of Pennsylvania’s Rodney Young, Cincinnati’s Jack Caskey and Carl Blegen, Yale’s Jerry Sperling and Dorothy Cox, and Bryn Mawr’s Virginia Grace proved their mettle as effective spies in an intriguing game of cat and mouse with their Nazi counterparts. Although the club is older, the knife more universal, and the firearm much more efficient, it is to the sword that most decoration, myth, mysticism and reverence has been given. The romance of the sword is very much alive—but movies, books and fiction of all types have romanticized the past, and particularly the sword, beyond all recognition of the real thing. Building on Oakeshott and other authoritative writers on the subject, this volume, representing ten years of writing and a lifetime of experience, will add to the body of knowledge of the history of swords by illustrating not only the beauty of the form of the sword, but also their beauty of function. With insightful writing, up-to-date reviews of major attractions, and a lot of "local" knowledge, this book has it all. Every gambler should be required to read this book cover to cover before they spend a vacation contributing to the casinos all the money that it takes to run all those flashing lights.

A chile pepper paste from Tunisia (harissa), a Turkish spice mixture that goes great with grilled meats (baharat), and powdered sumac (used in the eastern Mediterranean to make food sour in the absence of vinegar) are just three of the many tastes you’ll encounter.
You actually get to watch an expert chef put them to use in a fascinating series of dishes that highlight a particular spice’s characteristics, whether the captivating aroma of toasted cumin or the palate-warming heat of a roasted chile. Chef Briwa has crafted a lecture series that’s essential for anyone looking to spice up everyday meals.
It represents a twofold major integration of truths previously discovered by other writers, combined with numerous original contributions made by the author himself. Reisman is able to develop the numerous major original contributions that the book presents on the subjects of profits, wages, saving, capital accumulation, aggregate economic accounting, monopoly, and natural resources, among other vital subjects.
Its thesis is that never have so many people been so ignorant and confused about a subject so important, as most people now are about economics and capitalism. Those who succeed today do so because they compete in the most advantageous part of the market.

For The Good Soldiers, his bestselling account from the front lines of Baghdad, Finkel embedded with the men of the 2-16 Infantry Battalion during the infamous “surge,” a grueling fifteen-month tour that changed them all forever.
Once again, he has embedded with some of the men of the 2-16—but this time he has done it at home, here in the States, after their deployments have ended. With his unparalleled ability to report a story, he climbs into the hearts and minds of those he writes about.
They belong to a side of football that most players wish to keep private - some take place on the pitch, but most are a long way from the glare of the TV cameras. In “Losing Nora,” she deftly captures the rivalry, mutual respect, and intimacy that made up her relationship with her older sister and frequent writing companion. Why did we transition from hunter – gatherers to pastoralists or agriculturalists and civilization, despite the “luxurious” living of hunter -gatherers and what relics of hunting remain in our daily lives?
He relates how Rivulets of Moment, including based on the adventure stories he read as a child about the “jungles” of Africa, a rifle, a trip to Africa, and a dream converged into a river carrying him to trophy hunting in Africa.
How has the enigma of earth’s geology from the Big Bang onwards, including Moses timeline, and weather stresses, driven animal physiology to adapt, and in turn anatomy and behavior to accommodate, and how do different genealogies based on various methods reconcile with ancient biped Australopithecus and Homo species anatomical findings? No-one can quite understand why we're intent on destroying the only place we have to live in the Universe.
Not humanity, obviously, we're appalling, but until we manage to kill every other living thing on the planet there are some truly wonderful places on Rrth and some wonderful creatures living in them. The occupants of a car traveling down a lonely road spot his ship (the sort of massive lemon coloured, lemon shaped starship that really shouldn't be hanging in the sky over a road).
Led off by an authoritative biographical essay by Elizabeth Partridge (Lange's goddaughter), the book goes on to showcase Lange's work in over a hundred glorious plates.
In The Crash of 2016, Thom Hartmann argues that the facade of our once-great United States will soon disintegrate to reveal the rotting core where corporate and billionaire power and greed have replaced democratic infrastructure and governance.
Hartmann outlines the destructive forces-planted by Lewis Powell in 1971 and come to fruition with the "Reagan Revolution"-that have looted our nation over the past decade, and how their actions fit into a cycle of American history that lets such forces rise to power every four generations.
Only if the right reforms are enacted and the moral choices are made, can we avert disaster and make our nation whole again. And for over two thousand years, geometry has been equated with Euclid's Elements, arguably the most influential book in the history of mathematics. Berlinski shows that, for centuries, scientists and thinkers from Copernicus to Newton to Einstein have relied on Euclid's axiomatic system, a method of proof still taught in classrooms around the world.
None of them ever guessed that he was also providing strategic intelligence to Hanoi, smuggling invisible ink messages into the jungle inside egg rolls. Some of them are well known and have been the subject of biography—Eleanor of Aquitaine, Emma of Normandy, Isabella of France, and Anne Boleyn, for example—while others have not been written about outside academic journals. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, links users' personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. There are parties that last through the night, there are famous musicians playing on the lawn, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO. What begins as the captivating story of one woman's ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge.

The stories are all intimately interior, exploring the secret places all of us harbor that ultimately isolate one from another. As she documents the firebrand leader’s troublesome entry onto the world stage, Moaveni richly portrays a society too often caricatured as the heartland of militant Islam.


But as women are arrested on the street for “immodest dress” and the authorities unleash a campaign of intimidation against journalists, the country’s dark side reemerges. A wobbling Hungary has just opened its borders to Austria enabling a flood of refugees to escape, the Berlin Wall is on the cusp of falling, and, yet, seemingly sheltered from this onrushing new world in their idyllic East German home are Adam, a tailor and dressmaker who enjoys a life of dressing (and undressing) his appreciative clientele, and Evelyn, Adam’s restless girlfriend.
Calmly, but quickly, Evelyn packs her belongings and runs off to Hungary on a vacation she had originally planned to take with Adam. In six unique, unforgettable countries, she gathered book-loving new friends— taxi drivers and teachers, poets and politicians— to read Emma, Sense and Sensibility, and Pride and Prejudice. Willa Cather, wanting to be judged on her work alone, clearly forbade the publication of her letters in her will. Postcards and letters describe her many travels around the United States and abroad, and they record her last years in the 1940s, when the loss of loved ones and the disasters of World War II brought her near to despair.
