Holland: The Life and Times of Gertjan Verbeek carpenter, dreamer, football manager is a post from: Just Football

A visit to AZ Alkmaar's AFAS Stadion and there's no escaping one particular banner. Created with visiting supporters in mind, its message is succinct. "We have Verbeek" it reads in bold letters.

Qualification for Euro 2012 begins again next month next month and I thought it was a good time to review what has happened so far in qualifying.

It is no surprise to see holders and world champions Spain on maximum points along with Germany and the Netherlands. Russia and Norway, revived by Egil Olsen, have also made a perfect start, while Montenegro have been hugely impressive in their debut campaign.

RAFA ON THE WAY OUT OF LIVERPOOL?

Friends of Liverpool FC at related • 0 views
I am just in from the pub and I read all these reports that Rafa is on the way out of Liverpool FC with a paltry £3 million pay-off to get rid of him.
I knew that Christian Puslow doesn't rate the mananger but I didn't think the new board of Nash, Ayre, Broughton and Purslow would sack him, they have the casting votes now in the running of the club.

Pressure mounting on Villas-Boas at Chelsea - SI.com.

When Chelsea selected ex-Porto manager Andre Villas-Boas to be their new leader last summer, many fans were scratching their heads to figure out who he was, and why he was chosen, but people in the game however, had no reservations about his ability to lead the London club back to it's trophy winning ways, as he had led Porto to a treble winning season in 2011 with Portuguese League, Cup and Europa League triumphs.

This is an important group for U.S. fans, because if the U.S. finished 2nd, it will play the winner of this group. This is a really tough group with Germany, Australia, Serbia and Ghana. Germany, Serbia and Ghana are all good teams and it will be interesting to see how this group plays out.

The return of Deco

Chelsea totally tore up Sunderland, a pretty decent side, today. I have no idea why Paul Wilson wrote that the Blues would be the first to drop out of the top four. Maybe he got too much sun in Mallorca. Something about the coach being new to the Premiership. At this point this Blues team could coach themselves.

Gold Cup loss was final nail for Bradley World Soccer Yahoo! Sports.

Today, the  United States Soccer Federation (USSF) dismissed MNT coach Bob Bradley following months of speculation about his future. The USA's defeat in the Gold Cup Final against Mexico was thought to have been the final straw for the former Chicago Fire man, but a period of inactivity since that game led some people to beleive, me included, that he had weathered the storm.

Hiddink Should Be Top Pick For Liverpool

Anfield Talk at related • 0 views
The news that Kenny Dalglish has thrown his hat in the ring to become the next Liverpool manager has stirred debate amongst Kopites in Northern Ireland and beyond.
While Rafael Benitez has not let the grass grow under his feet since leaving Anfield last week by becoming Inter Milan's new boss, Liverpool fans are still waiting and wondering who will guide them through this difficult period in their history.

Adios Rafa…

At last Rafa Benitez has been shown the door.

After foolishly giving him a new contract last spring all recent discussions have been about how much of a payoff he will receive. Now that seems to have been resolved and Liverpool are looking for a new manager.

Early markets show Kenny Dalglish and Martin O'Neill as favourites at around 2-1.

Benitez Future in Doubt

MIKE JACOBS at related • 0 views

Rafael Benítez claimed last night that no one at Liverpool has attempted to talk him into remaining at Anfield in spite of mounting interest from Juventus.

Speculation about Benítez's future has heightened in recent weeks because of the increasing likelihood of Liverpool losing their status as a top-four club and the intensification of Juventus's very public efforts to convince the Spaniard that he should quit the Barclays Premier League for Serie A.

With news of Fabio Capello's departure from the England post yesterday came the expected flood of "experts" speculating on potential replacements based on nothing more than years' old rumors. With names ranging from the seemingly pre-agreed upon alternate Harry Redknapp, to Ian Holloway, Stuart Pearce and Guus Hiddink, there was a disturbing trend towards the English manager.

Turkey’s Hiddink Dilemma

Turkish Football Report at related • 1 view

Going into the Turkish national team match against Belgium this past Friday, much of the speculation was on how the Turks would do against Belgium. Turkey needed maximum points against the Belgians in order to consolidate second position in Group A of the Euro 2012 qualifiers. With Belgium to play three matches after their match against Turkey, and with Turkey having four matches left after the match against Belgium, the Turks needed maximum points.

Does Carlo need a new link man? ZOLA or WISE anyone?

A Chelsea Fans Blog for Chelsea Fans at related • 0 views

One thing stands out for me of late and that's the Chelsea bench. Not just the players sitting there and the lack of squad depth, I am talking of the void next to Carlo. For me anyway there seems to be something missing, the link between the players and Carlo.

Everyone of course has an opinion about Butch Wilkins and is entitled to theirs.

Why I Hate International Breaks

The Offside - Arsenal at related • 2 views

I knew it was too much to ask for for our players to get through an international break without getting injured, and I was right. Andrei Arshavin, who had to come off injured with a groin injury against Manchester United, rushed back too early to play in yesterday's game against Wales. Guus Hiddink, being the loyal Chelsea man he is, made sure Arshavin played all 90 minutes, and of course he re-injured his groin, and will now miss our next two matches the league fixture against Manchester City and the Champions League match-up with Standard Liege.
