Hanging On The Telephone

Jakarta Casual at related • 0 views

I dunno how many football matches I've seen over the years in various countries; can't be far off a 1,000. But outside of a pub league game on a Sunday morning in brass monkeys weather I have never seen a professional footballer take a phone call just minutes before kick off in a vital top flight game.

The Seismic Rending of Victory in the North London Derby

Tottenham On My Mind at related • 0 views

Released from the stifling burden of his defensive responsibilities, Kyle Walker moves purposefully onto a loose ball. He's spent a good while with his back to the wall, unable to shake free of the relentless pressure coming his way as our north London rivals dominate. Walker's known primarily for his pace but he's a fine footballer too, so it's a touch then head down, eyes on the ball, it flies low and on target.

7 Ways that World Cup 2010 Will Change America

EPL Talk at related • 13 views

One of the things about the World Cup is that it puts the sport into perspective. With 64 games in one month, it's easy to get a cross-section of where a country is. How well it's doing relative to the other teams in the tournament. What the level of officiating is. And what improvements are necessary.

Will Stan finally get the message?

So another Arsenal AGM passes with more waffle than you would find in Belgium.

One thing we did learn was the need to oust Peter Hill-Wood from his role as chairman because, from what I saw, he was a joke.

I mean the old boy could barely read out the resolutions of the meeting from his notes and he missed out the agenda of re-electing Stan Kroenke, the majority shareholder, on to the board.

One thing that really seems to rankle with other bosses is that Arsene Wenger always dodges the opportunity to have a glass of wine with the opposing manager in his office after the game. It is one of the reasons that many of the traditional English managers really don't take to him.

Quite frankly it is pathetic, it may be classed as traditional but a quick handshake and a few words will suffice and quite frankly I can see every reason why Wenger doesn't want to be anywhere near the fat, dribbling oik that is Fat Sam.

Right, well football's back and we can finally put the Interlull behind us. Obviously there was plenty about Thierry, Ireland and France and what have you at Arsene's press conference yesterday but I think enough has been said on here about it.

The only thing I will comment on is his call for technology to be used to help referees.

What the hell has gone wrong with Phillipe Senderos?.. Once he was going to be a future Arsenal captain, the next Tony Adams. Now no one wants to entertain the man.
I like the guy, he is a very good defender he just lacks a bit of pace. But so does John Terry. So why is John Terry so good and Phillipe Senderos so bad?

Keys and Gray relaunch on the small, small screen, plus Cundy's on-air slip of the tongue

Eight months after they left Sky Sports under a sexist cloud, Richard Keys and Andy Gray have made it back to the screen in style.

The former dogid Liverpool man, posted on his Twitter account that, 'I've watched it for 33 years but, right now, in my opinion as a football fan, it's c**p, and like dinosaur football'.

Quick Thoughts on USA v. Ecuador

The Fullback Files at related • 0 views
Good first half. Familiar lack of finishing. Weak second and predictably punished. The defense did look better organized (at least until Bocanegra left) though uncomfortable against the quick counter, something that should have Mexico salivating. Anyway, just a few thoughts...

* Chandler looked really impressive at the problem left back spot.

Jermaine Jones Could Be a Yank by Next Week

WorldCupBlog at related • 2 views

Jermaine Jones has never been afraid of a bit of controversy. In 2004, he took a fairly softball question, "Are there any gay footballers in the Bundesliga?" (Easy answer: I don't know) and turned it into a major story when he answered "Hopefully not". Classy. He's also somewhat infamous for his relationship, or lack thereof, with the fans of his former club, Eintracht Frankfurt, where he announced he was leaving with a post on the club's bulletin board.

This is Brazilian Ronaldo showing he has a sense of humour, in a "behind-the-scenes" look at an actual television commercial.

He is revealed to be the Godzilla-like, CGI-generated dinosaur who causes havoc by appearing in a football stadium, scoring a goal, then causing the pitch to dislodge from the earth when he celebrates.

When Kenny Dalglish took over in January, there were many eager to portray him as a footballing dinosaur who had lost touch with the game after a decade out. This was a sentimental choice, we were told, and he would soon be found out.

As Liverpool improved beyond recognition in the following months, those who had been critical slunk away.

Business Guys Say MLS is Doing it Wrong

Match Fit USA at related • 6 views

The idea that MLS is headed down a dangerous path with increasing investment in players like David Beckham and Thierry Henry is not a new one. Nor is the inflammatory notion that doing so will create NASL redux, a repeat of history that will inevitably lead to the league's collapse.

Sports Business Journal is the latest to sound the alarm, though that conclusion comes at the end of a piece on how MLS should focus on younger future talent, and the reasons why.
