Ex-Arsenal Star: Players Wearing Pink Should Get The Boot!


Image Hosting by Picoodle.com


Nicklas Bendtner came off the bench on Tuesday evening to score the winning goal against Dynamo Kyiv. But his pink boots have attracted as much attention as his goal...

Former Bolton Wanderers and Newcastle United boss Sam Alladyce once claimed that while he was not in management he had carried out research and concluded that only 40 per cent of footballers these days wear black boots.

The latest player to attract attention due to his flamboyant boot selection is Arsenal's Nicklas Bendtner, who came off the bench on Tuesday evening wearing a pair of pink Nike Mercurial Vapor Rosas. He was instantly subjected to wolf-whistles from the crowd, but the big Dane had the last laugh as he scored a late winner with a good finish.

Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour, the Romford Pele as he is also known, believes things have changed since his day, and that if he was marking someone wearing the same boots as Bendtner, then he would most likely give him a kick!

Speaking to Radio One's Chappers on their football pools podcast, Parlour said: "In our day you had a pair of black and white ones as plain as you like and then you played.

You’ve got to be playing really well, you’ve got to be banging in three goals a game to be wearing them [the pinks]," he said.

"People like Ronaldo could possibly get away with it. But Bendtner has not really been great the last few games. Why would you want to wear a pair of pink boots?" Parlour asked.

"I’m sure Arsene Wenger looks at it every morning and sees people turning up in light green boots, pink boots and is thinking, 'we’ve got to sort this out on the pitch as it does give a bad message sometimes and straight away you look a bit arrogant or flash if you like.'

"Players will probably want to kick him if you have pink boots on without a doubt," he claimed.

"I'm not being funny but if I was marking someone with pink boots I’d definitely want to kick him hard!

However, he did concede: "If you’re banging in three goals a week I couldn’t care less what boots you wear," before adding, "but he’s not really been great and he’s missed chances. I don’t like to see that myself."

According to some sources Nicklas Bendtner was wearing pink boots in order to raise awareness of breast cancer.

The Puffy Coat Voyeur's Life May Fall Apart

'Hands off English football'

There is growing opposition to European plans that would ban British football clubs from transferring players aged under 18.

The proposals are due to be discussed by Europe's sports ministers later this week - alongside the idea of having a European-wide super regulator that would be able to impose rules on clubs' debts.

The government, the Premier League and Euro MPs from all the main British parties flatly reject the case for a new authority.

And they will be relieved that Michel Platini, the President of European football's governing body Uefa, has backed away from the idea, originally proposed by the French.

But stopping clubs transferring under-18s is still up for negotiation.

It is argued that very young players, particularly from Africa and South America, need protection to ensure, for instance, they get sufficient education.

Premier League clubs accept this but are adamant they should still be able to sign young players like Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas.

Fabregas, who is Spanish, was signed by the North London club when he was just 16.

"We will call for a ban on underage transfers, and to stop the raiding of academies worldwide," said William Gaillard, Uefa's director of communications and Platini's special adviser.

"We feel this is a really dangerous situation which borders on a violation of human rights."

But Richard Scudamore, chief executive of the Premier League, insisted that while he was wholly supportive of a tightening up of the rules, a blanket ban would be unnecessarily restrictive.

This row, and the broader issue of the legitimacy or otherwise of a European sports regulator, is provoking a strong political reaction.

There is growing irritation among British MEPs in Brussels at what many see as unnecessary meddling in national sport.

One Liberal Democrat told me it was bad enough when sport and politics mixed, let alone sport and the European Union.

'Dangerous game'

And the Conservatives agree.

"We should celebrate the success of English football clubs, not apologise for it," Tory MEP Chris Heaton Harris, who represents the East Midlands, said.

Mr Heaton Harris, who chairs the European Parliament Sports Group, added: "If you give the European Union any kind of power over sport it will be very difficult to get it back.

"Uefa are playing a dangerous game if they think they can curb the success of Premier League clubs by appealing to the EU.

"British Ministers must stick up for sports governing bodies and English football clubs and tell their European counterparts to keep their hands off British sport."

If that is a message Sports Minister Gerry Sutcliffe was not aware of a few days ago, he is now.

Leading figures in football, cricket, rugby union, rugby league and tennis have met Mr Sutcliffe to register their opposition.

And the British government has made its opposition clear to French Sports Minister Bernard Laporte, who has been pushing the idea.

As the current holders of the rotating Presidency of the EU, the French have been anything but inactive in recent months.

These latest proposals, to be discussed in Biarritz in France on Thursday and Friday, are likely to provoke very heated debate.

And there is very little, if any, support in British sport or politics for much of what is being suggested.

I love how they drop in buzz phrases like "human rights violations" to make it seem uber serious.

MOAR INJURIES.


Spanish champions Real Madrid must do without Argentine international defender Gabriel Heinze for three weeks due to a leg injury, the club said on Wednesday.

Heinze sustained the injury to his left leg during Real's 1-0 UEFA Champions League win over BATE Borisov on Tuesday, which helped them qualify for the last 16 of the competition. It is the latest injury setback for Real who already have Ruud van Nistelrooy, Arjen Robben and Gonzalo Higuain on the treatment table while Ruben de la Red is out of contention due to health reasons.





no Heinze tag.
