Rush, who doesn't appear to have any management ambitions of his own, is happy to see that one of Liverpool's key principles is being upheld:

"What Kenny brings to the club is the thought that no one is bigger than the team, but he does that without hurting any of the players' sentiments".

This goal from Sao Paulo got my attention a lot. If it was a normal player, he would kicked it so hard, and the keeper saved it, then he curse his luck

This goal from unknown league or game is wonderful great combination of imagination and skills


I think Ronaldinho in Brazil is now reaching the phase where he plays for the fun and joy of the game and not for money.
