Football in the Capital Archives for January 2009
When John Aloisi was at Coventry City he ran the forward line on his own in the old English First

Stephen is 18 and playing his first start in the A-League. Away to Melbourne at the Dome.

No-one could blame a young aspiring player, but one could wonder at the logic of Miron Bleiberg and
former Lazio midfielder and Assistant Coach Paul Okon.

Thierry Henry like many afore him says "it's up to the referee!"
But what about decency from himself and the French team. Not once but twice did the ball "hit@ more
like he quided the ball with his hand...and what gaul, what cheek to celebrate and blame the
Imagine a French side that wins the World Cup, Henry as captain would receive the trophy.
Ireland aren't going! Neither is Gus Hiddink.
Could we bring him back....too late I guess!
Ronaldo should be there..if fit...but not the Ukraine's or Egyptians.
