Super Mario was a popular video game character from the 1990s, but this summer he could also be on the football pitch with the Joplin Demize of the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL).

“Super Mario” Pinto was a massive scoring threat for the Demize, scoring six goals and two assists in league play.  He was simply unstoppable on a number of occasions.  Against the Houston Dynamo’s U-23 squad, Pinto scored a hat trick in the exhibition, thriving against the higher level of competition.  In early June Pinto would score three goals in four games, earning him National Player of the Week honors in the NPSL.  Simply put, he was the perfect fit for the Demize.

As clubs become more sophisticated they will, often, develop club wide playing systems and styles. Ajax of Amsterdam were one of the first clubs to have a club wide system of play and a numbering system which described the role of the player in that area of the field. The player in the #11 position was, always, the left flank player. Some clubs would call it “left wing.” This is an important step forward as it means that everyone in the club understands what the #11 position is and where about on the field it is even if the player in that position wore the number 44!

Like many people I have always thought that creativity stood as one of the cornerstones of Brazilian football. The 1970 World Cup, shown around the world, constituted the first time many people had seen the glorious skills of Brazilian players featuring Pele, Rivelino, Tostao, Gerson and many other players. They defeated the Italians 4 – 1 in the final and it could have been more! My school mates and I ran outside and played in the Liverpool streets trying to replicate  Brazilian skill and movements we had never seen before.
