Press Reaction To Barmy Liverpool Suarez Response

Republik Of Mancunia at related • 0 views

Oliver Holt, The Mirror.

What a shame Liverpool chose to couch their decision not to appeal in ­inflammatory language that continued to insist Suarez had done nothing wrong. Suarez has admitted calling Patrice Evra "negro". To persist with the argument, as he and the club are doing, that this was a term of endearment is not just "incredible", as the tribunal found; it is also laughable.

Carroll, Suarez and Kuyt to start for the Reds in the derby

A FRESH autumn morning will make way for some Indian summer sun in Liverpool today as the city makes the most of the unexpected heatwave. Not that heat would have been completely unexpected in L4 today – it's derby day, the 185th time The Reds have met The Blues in the league and a time where friendships and family ties are tested to their limits.

2011: A New Start For Italian Football

Serie A Talk at related • 0 views

2010 was a bad year for Italian football. I tried to think of the positives, but very few came to mind. A disastrous World Cup in South Africa, a bad showing in the Europa League, and only a Champions League victory (guided by a Portuguese mastermind) which retains some dignity for Italian football.

As England get set to play Bulgaria at Wembley on Friday a large section of the UK media will be sharpening its knives ready to plunge them into Fabio Capello. There is a sizeable majority of the media who would be only too pleased to see England lose to Bulgaria as it would ensure his immediate dismissal and the installation of a more media-friendly English manager called Harry.

On June 15, 1950, two Hungarians joined Barcelona to signify the beginning of yet another transformation: Laszlo Kubala and new manager Ferdinand Daucik. They were the masterminds of the success to come.

Of course, the day belongs to Porto for winning their first Europa League title in eight years (the last one they picked up was with Mourinho when he was making his mini mark as a mastermind in 2002!) But these innovative fans take the cake for using paper plates (or something along those lines) to create their butts/costumes!

Ten minutes later Marcelo found the back of the net for the visiting Real Madrid, but it was not enough.

The recent squad of 19 (plus Under-21s) submitted by Chelsea to the Premier League as mandated by the new home grown mandate was discussed in detail yesterday. Consensus so far has been that, while the squad is incredibly strong, it is grossly thin. Well, maybe not grossly but thin nonetheless.

Among the 19 are two reserve goalkeepers who have yet to prove they are anything other than **** this season and a pair of new additions, one of which is also new to the league.

In the continuing goal to erase all memory that Toronto FC's 2010 season existed, The Reds traded midfielder Joseph Nane to the MLS Cup Champion Colorado Rapids for a 3rd Round SuperDraft pick in 2012. The affable yet vaguely talented Cameroon native, who was drafted in the 4th Round of the 2010 Draft, was absurdly and mistakenly claimed as first team quality by "management".

End of Season Review

You know I had a good mind to cancel the End of the Season awards this year. After all the trouble I had trying to mail the various gongs off last time out, it really felt like my efforts were going to waste. Sure, the ‘trophies' weren't made with so called ‘traditional' materials- some odd bits of MDF glued together, dried pasta shapes and enough gold lacquer to take down a light aircraft, if you want the truth- but some of the feedback I got from the recipients was just plain rude.

Plymouth Argyle: The Song Remains The Same

It has taken until nearly March, but the first ten point deduction of the season in the Football League is now finally upon us with the news that Plymouth Argyle have lodged a "notice of intention" to enter into administration. The notice of intention the date of which, the 21st of February, is no coincidence considering that another tax bill fell due yesterday is a technicality that allows a company protection on a short-term basis from legal action taken by their creditors, but the deduction has been applied by the Football League regardless of this.

Captain Sweatpants Rides Again

USA World Cup Blog at related • 0 views

Well that was anti-climactic. Today US Soccer announced Bob Bradley's contract has been extended four more years. Meaning, we've got him through the next World Cup. Huzzah. That's right, we've got four more years of sideline scowls and the most magnificent sweatpants collection in FIFA. I definitely agree some of his selections have been a bit suspect,

and perhaps he has a slight problem being the mastermind behind a few embarrassing terrible tactical blunders

and maybe he hasn't quite figured out it doesn't necessarily make the USA look so good to play the newbies in games against the really good national teams

(Insert picture of the 2007 Copa America roster here or whoever the crap those guys were playing against Brazil earlier this month)

But hey no matter what crazy dumb-ass thing our Bob has done over the past four years, it's kinda moot because we've got him for another four so that's four more years to make stupid mistakes and drive the USA to another World Cup of utter mediocrity OR that's four years ahead for us with an experienced leader who has worked the college and professional systems in this country so that should count for something, you know, for picking out budding talent.
