A crazed fan scaled the fence at Liverpool's Melwood training ground before hurling abuse and death threats at Steven Gerrard. The Reds skipper initially ignored the man, whose hands were covered in anti-vandal paint from climbing the barrier around the training ground, and continued practising free-kicks with Philippe Coutinho and Simon Mignolet.

Remember that perverse, pervasive sense of impending doom that followed the club around throughout 2009-10? Not the dreadful, soul-killing horribleness that was the Hodgson era, but the perpetual Sword of Damocles which hung over Benitez's final campaign, where we fearfully waited to see what could go wrong next.

Young Lions In Malaysia?

Jakarta Casual at related • 0 views
Talk surfaced the other day about possible ongoing negitiations between the FAs of Singapore and Malaysia. At the heart is the idea they send their young teams to play in the others' league. So Young Lions in Malaysia, Super League or Premier League, while Harimau Muda play in the SLeague.
I did a piece in Jakarta Casual TV a couple of years ago about the benefits of the Young Lions playing in Malaysia.

So you know I love me some yoga.Apparently, so does Klinsi, because the USMNT are now hitting their cobras as part of recovery and preventative medicine.

I've talked to Gertjan Verbeek. He can be an intense dude. And now he's mad at Klinsi for dragging Jozy Altidore to L.A. and back. Of course, I questioned the logic of scheduling friendlies a half a world and four days apart, but it seems a bit much for the respectable AZ coach to take to the media mic in this manner.

As someone who knew Luis when he was very overweight, I've seen first hand his transformation and have gotten occasional glimpses into the effort losing so many pounds entailed. Of course, that doesn't mean I have a true inkling of how much blood, sweat and tears all of it took. I'm still working on my first marathon (hopefully in Luis' pace group) scheduled for next year.

Words never seen before, possibly never to be seen again: a player was sent off for protesting his own won penalty.

Granted, it was in the Norwegian fifth division, where things like glory, acclaim and riches take the backseat of a bicycle to a nice postgame nap. Frankly, the Norwegian fifth could be equal to walking down to the closest green patch of your urban space.

In these harsh economic times it's worthwhile considering every possible outlet when it comes to cost cutting and sport can lend a hand. Go for a run instead of going to the gym, playing football in the park rather than paying pitch fees or cycling to work instead of driving.

The latter mentioned is perhaps the most commonly taken option when it comes to cutting costs and through a bit of exercise in there for good measure.

Julio Gomez's Bicycle Kick - Soccer House Should Be Worried

The Zygo Soccer Report at related • 0 views

Last night in the semifinals of the FIFA Under-17 World Cup, Mexico gave notice and fired a figurative shot across Soccer House's bow when Julio Gomez, head wrapped in gauze, scored the goal that gave Mexico the 3-2 win over Germany with the lovely bicycle kick shown in the video below.

The young German squad, which had knocked out the United States in a 4-0 victory during the Round of 16, took an early 2-1 lead, but then, in the 75th minute, Jorge Espericueta picked up the equalizer on an improbable corner kick (you can watch it in the second video below).
