Making the Move Back Home

Juan Roman Riquelme has secured his much anticipated move back to Boca Juniors from Villareal. Riquelme was loaned out to his former/current team, Boca Juniors last year after a very public fallout with Chilean manager, Manuel Pellegrini and hasn't played for the club since. What a waste of talent and poor business on the part of Villareal. Oh well, now he's back in Argentina and will light it up yet again.

Aye! Tis' the Season for the Sackings

Derby's, Billy Davies received and early Christmas gift after being let go from the lowly club (who really shouldn't be in the Premiership anyhow.) What did they expect?

Next should be our Rafael Benitez. Whenever the axe falls on him, it will be a day too late as far as I'm concerned.

Yet another one to add to the list. This time it is the great Steve McClaren albeit about 9 months too late. I think the blame lies with the FA on this one though.

Now, who is next in line for the gig?

Ladies and Gentlemen, mark your calendar with a red pencil, no a red pen, actually, no, make that a red Sharpie!

NOVEMBER 6, 2007

"Why on earth would I mark my precious calendar with all my dates and appointments on it with a red Sharpie?" you may ask yourself? Well, let me tell you why.

Liverpool have matched, equalled, and surpassed the UEFA Champions League record for most goals in a Champions League match. Arsenal had equalled the previous record a few weeks ago with a 7 - 1 victory over Slavia Prague (previously held by Juve from 2003.) They did not surpass it though. Today, however, our boys in red showed that we deserve to be in this grand competition. I'll be the first to admit that we haven't displayed it until today. In the recent matches we looked like a lost dog searching out his master. Perhaps today we found the stone that had yet to be overturned? Hell I'll admit we haven't displayed ANYTHING until today. Nevertheless, we'll find out against Porto next. If I was Portuguese, and a Porto supporter (are you reading this Raquele ;o), I would get your rosary out right about now and start praying to the Lord that we don't pull Yossi Benayoun out of the cage and release him on ya!

On another note, I bet the falafel was flying mosque to mountain to madrassa when our Israeli bagged a hat-trick on them! Oh, I can only imagine the flag burning going on in Turkey tonight. If Liverpool whipped them like they did tonight in Turkey, they would have had to have been air lifted out of Istanbul! I'm just sayin'...

I can only say, "Nice one Yossi, nice one!" Now, go grab a Doner Kebab and celebrate with a yogurt drink!

Fernando Torres Update

Fernando Torres is back at practice (pictured above). I'm not sure if he'll be fit for tomorrows Champions League tie against the Turkish Delight though? Hopefully.
UPDATE: I guess we didn't need him today. I'll have to say that it's nice not to have to though.

Top 50

The Times of London rate the Top 50 Football Kits.

Another One...

Chris Hutchings of Wigan got the sack after dropping into the relegation zone. Who's next? A certain Spainiard perhaps?

I'm Just Sayin'...

French football is worth watching...sometimes! Well the highlights are anyhow. Pops knows what I'm talkin' about!

The Phoenix Rises?

Harry Kewell is finally fit again after a 6 month lay-off. Hopefully, he'll be back to his former self. I'm crossing my fingers and saying my prayers.

Valencia Have a New Gaffer

Ronald Koeman has agreed to take over as manager of Valencia after resigning from PSV Eindhoven.

Bye the way, Valencia got trounced by Real Madrid today 5 - 1!
