(How they could have a XXX Olympiad without Joe Cannon is a disgrace) In 2016, British stereotypes will be replaced with Brazilian stereotypes as Rio hosts the next games - bowler hats replaced with thongs; chalky white skin will make way for bronzed tans; Beckham out - 103 year-old Pele in; and whatever the samba equivalent of Pet Shop Boys is.

It was nice of the International Olympic Committee to keep us all occupied for the last few weeks, but now that those other sports that you never really cared about are off the television and consigned to memory for the next four years, we're reminded that we're about to go through another ten months of crushing disappointment and delirious euphoria all over again – and let's not pretend that we're not looking forward to it.

The dust is very gradually settling on an almost entirely successful London Olympic Games.

The Childlike Delusions of the Arsène Haters

There is a strong current of opinion among some Arsenal supporters that our seven year winless streak is a disgrace.

The argument goes like this: "Arsenal are a big club. Big clubs win things. We haven't won anything for seven years. Therefore... our manager isn't good enough; our Board of Directors lack ambition; they're only interested in money.

False Clock Ticking

Just Like My Dreams... at related • 0 views
Oh a false clock tries to tick out my time
To disgrace, distract, and bother me
And the dirt of gossip blows into my face
And the dust of rumors covers me
But if the arrow is straight
And the point is slick
It can pierce through dust no matter how thick
So I'll make my stand
And remain as I am
And bid farewell and not give a damn.

Here we are again, people. I know it's been a while but another howler of a decision by a refereeing crew in England today in a massively important football game has again thrust the issue of video technology onto the front burner again worldwide. Premier League referee Martin Atkinson ruled that Chelsea had scored following a frantic goalmouth scramble to take the lead in their FA Cup Semi Final at Wembley Stadium, London against Tottenham.

Well it seems that AVB will be officially appointed Spurs manager today and I just wondered how you people feel about that?.

For me it's weird because a part of me wishes him well but then again he's joining Spurs so I am hoping it all falls apart like it did here at Stamford Bridge.

Alot of people I meet who aren't Chelsea fans, like to have a pop at how our established players treated AVB and I was even told that these same players are a disgrace!

Ever since Chelsea won the Champions League, I have been buzzing and still watch Didier Drogba's header and winning penalty virtually every day as I still can't quite believe that after eight years of this team trying, they finally won it.

However, one thing has become very clear to me in recent weeks and that's the resentment of Chelsea from other supporters.

Arjen Robben jeered by Bayern Munich fans at Netherlands friendly

Dirty Tackle at related • 1 view

Just three days after Arjen Robben missed a penalty kick that might have won the Champions League final for Bayern Munich, his club hosted his national team -- the Netherlands -- for a friendly in the same stadium that housed his nightmare. And though some of the 33,000 fans in attendance at the Allianz Arena were forgiving, others booed Robben's every touch of the ball after he entered the match as a second half substitute for the Netherlands, who lost 3-2.

Last night Bayern Munich played Holland in an unfortunately timed and largely meaningless friendly at the Allianz Arena which was set up in order to compensate the German side for the hamstring twang that Arjen Robben aggravated at the 2010 World Cup an injury which forced him to miss the first two months of the following season, despite Bayern pleading with the KNVB not to play him in South Africa.

QPR went down to City but in the end it did not prove costly as Bolton could not pull off a win against Stoke so they remain promoted. But no thanks to Joey Barton. This man is a disgrace to his team and the sport. This match should have been spent marshaling players for a huge match instead the demons inside this George Orwell quoting hack got the better of him.
