It will be far removed from the glittering opening ceremony in
London as the Olympics officially begins at the City of Coventry
Stadium in yes you've guessed it Coventry. This is the very same
place that when the torch went through the streets that two young
hoodies tried to run off with it. The very same place that two
security staff were found to be working illegally and compromising
security. So tonight when the might of Japan take on Canada the
worlds eyes will focus on Coventry, could be worse could of been in
One thing we all agree on is our love for football
football football. So just imagine if you were lucky enough to have
the chance to represent your country at the World Cup, a dream for
most of us Sunday morning hobblers. This dream for a certain
Manchester City full back is now over due to the ugly episode we
have all read about a thousand times. So now the question, what
would you do? Would you give up the ultimate childhood dream of
playing at a World Cup due to the off field shananagins of your ex
team mate? Or would you say 'Oi Terry NOOOO!!!!' and board the
plane to South Africa?
Its been the scurge of football since time began. We all
remember Diego Maradona punching Argentina through to the '86'
World Cup Semi Finals at the expense of the hapless Shilton. Even
choir boy Scholes did it against Zenit St. Petersburg in the Super
Cup Final, but he rightly received his marching orders for it. And
now Thierry 'Beautiful Game' Henry decided to grow feet for hands
before Gallas slotted home to break the hearts of not only Ireland
but of football in general.
So now the big question, would you use your paw to cheat your
way to success or prefer to lose with dignity and keep the
integrity of our game intact.
An age old question. Your team crosses the white line and
produces some of the finest attacking football you've seen since
you were knee high to a grasshopper. The game has everything and is
a free flowing action packed goalasaurus. It ends in a
mouthwatering 4-4 draw.
The other side of the coin, you spend most of the match
daydreaming and wondering if you were a wolf what colour nightie
you would wear. You then wake up in the last minute to see a shot
deflect off you big bottomed substitute resulting in a 1-0 dour
So are you a football purist or is it all about
winning and winning ugly?
Van Persie, Bale, Sturridge, Vermaelen, Smalling, Luiz and
Gerrard. All injured playing in pointless friendlies during the
week. So fans who spend their hard earned at one of the many
Premiership games will be shortchanged because The Brazilian
Federation decided they just had to play Bosnia last week. I mean
the world of football would be on its knees if that fixture hadn't
of happened. Arsene Wenger is fuming as the spine of his team is on
the injured list, i think the only one smiling is Mancini as
all of his players made it to the end safely. Basically we all
calling for an end to these spineless games, does it really matter
if Scotland triumph over Slovenia, its not as if either will be
pitting their wits against Europe's elite this summer. Oh but wait
one might pop up two places higher to 298th in the world!! Is it
really worth it!
The last sighting of these furry fellas was in Kashyyk, chewie's
hometown. It is impossible to tell these furry fellas apart. If you
do run into them just let them have the ball. It's not wise to
upset a wookie Aaaaaaarrrrggghh!!!!!
Back in January 2011 the then QPR Manager Neil Warnock launched
a scathing attack on El Hadji Diouf after his side lost 1-0 at
Ewood Park. It followed a leg breaking challenge on Jamie Mackie.
Warnock scathed "I was going to call him a sewer rat but that might
be insulting the sewer rats. I think he is the lowest of the low".
Now our Neil has never been backward in coming forward so you would
think that Diouf's card would of been well and truly marked. Well
let's fast forward to this summer and we wonder who he has just
signed for Leeds Utd, You've guessed it the very same rodent that
is El Hadji Diouf. But now he isn't a rat anymore he is 'likeable
rogue'. We have always thought Warnock is a sandwich short but this
is unbelievable. Can we ever believe anything he says again, from
wanting the Senegal international out of the country one minute to
signing him the next. Any money when Leeds fail to get promoted
from the Championship it will all be down to Tevez again!!!
It will be a sad sad day when August 10th 2012 comes around. It
seems that Portsmouth FC are to cease to be, finito, zip, thats it
no more tattooed men ringing bells at Fratton Park anymore. Its the
fans we feel for the most, they haven't mismanaged the club,
overspent on players like Diarra, Campbell and James giving them
wages that they just couldn't afford. All they have done is put
there hard earned cash into watching them week in week out. But
they are the ones who will suffer the most. It could happen to any
club in the country and has happened in haggis land with the might
of Glasgow Rangers being demoted to Division Three to play in front
of average crowds of 350 and the odd ferret. But as we have seen in
the press the blame has been shifted onto the likes of Kanu,
Halford and our old favourite Dave Kitson. But its not their fault
either, they were offered the contracts to which they have
honoured. So to see the very existence of Portsmouth FC resting on
the fact they they should rip up their own contracts is nothing
short of a disgrace. The Football league need to step in and help
out the stricken club from liquidation or we might aswell give up
and go home. We just hope for the sake of football the famous
pompey chimes are still heard around the land. Play up Pompey!
