A player about to kick the ball past an opponent: The image on the top left of the page shows two players and a ball. The player on the left of the image is seen from the side and facing right, so only one eye can be found. He has his arms stretched out to the left and right. He is running, and one leg extends straight to the left. On the right, his other leg is bent up slightly. He wears a red shirt and white shorts (large print copy). The player to the right of the image is seen from the side facing to the left so that only one eye can be found. He has his arms stretched out and down to left and right. He stands on the leg to the left. To the left the ball sits on the grass. To the right his other leg is bent to the right, ready to swing left and kick the ball past his opponent. He wears a black and white striped shirt and black shorts (large print copy). A goalkeeper attempting to save a ball: The image at the bottom left of the page shows a goalkeeper, a ball and the goal. The goalkeeper has leapt off the ground towards the ball, which is in the top left of the goal. He has his arms outstretched and his hands are near the ball, ready to catch it. The rest of the keeper's body extends diagonally down and right. The square grid of the goal net can be found filling the goal posts behind him. Diagram of a football pitch: This diagram on the right of the page shows the football pitch and eleven members of each team. The players are represented here by large dots and crosses. At the top centre of the page there is a small rectangle representing a goal. Down the page from this are the goal area with a goalkeeper, and the penalty area rectangle with the penalty spot. Down again is the penalty arc, a semi-circle; all players must stay outside of this area when a penalty is being taken. Further down the page are the centre circle, the centre spot, and the centre line going across the image horizontally. At the bottom of the image is the opposing team's goal and penalty area. The pitch is on average 115 yards long x 75 yards wide (106 x 70 metres). Pitches, even in the Premier League, vary slightly across the country. Before the match starts and after a goal has been scored the players position themselves in various formations. The team at the top of the page is in 4:3:3 formation. That is four forwards, three mid-fielders and three defenders. The team at the bottom are in 4:4:2 formation, four forwards, four mid-fielders and two defenders.

A Christmas Carol

by Charles Dickens

In October 1843, Charles dinkens ― heavily in debt and obligated to his publisher ― began work on a book to help supplement his family's meager income. That volume, A Christmas Carol, has long since become one of the most beloved stories in the English language. As much a part of the holiday season as holly, mistletoe, and evergreen wreaths, this perennial favorite continues to delight new readers and rekindle thoughts of charity and goodwill.With its characters exhibiting many qualities ― as well as failures ― often ascribed to dinkens himself, the imaginative and entertaining tale relates Ebenezer Scrooge's eerie encounters with a series of spectral visitors. Journeying with them through Christmases past, present, and future, he is ultimately transformed from an arrogant, obstinate, and insensitive miser to a generous, warmhearted, and caring human being. Written by one of England's greatest and most popular novelists, A Christmas Carol has come to epitomize the true meaning of Christmas.
