LAST NIGHT I CAME ACROSS THIS SITE AND APPARENTLY THERE IS A 13 MINUTE ARGENTINE SHORT FILM STARRING A CERTAIN FABIO CANNAVARO. I WATCHED IT TWICE AND SAW NO CANNA. BUT HE IS IN THE CAST CREDITS AS "ENTRENADOR PERSONAL", EVEN THOUGH I DON'T THINK THERE WAS A PERSONAL TRAINER IN IT?
ANYWAY I'M PROVIDING THE LINK, AND IF YOU CAN FIND CANNA, I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER.
Steven Gerrard says Robbie Keane could leave Liverpool in January
Keane has been plagued by poor form and lack of goals since his £20.3million move from Tottenham Hotspur Ben Smith
Steven Gerrard has hinted that Robbie Keane could be sold by Liverpool in January as he struggles to establish himself at Anfield.
Keane has been plagued by poor form since his £20.3million move from Tottenham Hotspur in August and he has been linked with a move back to the capital when the transfer window reopens in January.
Rafael Benitez, the Liverpool manager, has denied that he will offload Keane, insisting he remains a key part of his plans, while the player himself has reiterated his desire to stay on Merseyside and fight for his place.
However, Mark Lawrenson, in an interview with Irish radio station Today FM, claims Gerrard has told him Keane could be sold in January.
"Sorry to name drop but I had a drink with Steven Gerrard at a function on Saturday night, and we were talking about Robbie Keane," Lawrenson said. "He was saying to me that they [Keane and Gerrard] share the same agent and he thinks something is going to happen with Robbie Keane in January.
"He thinks he's going to be moved on."
The nightmare start to Keane's Liverpool career reached a nadir on Saturday afternoon when Benitez left the striker on the substitutes' bench as Liverpool pushed for a winner against Hull City. For the second weekend running, Keane was left to scamper up and down the touchline as first Nabil El Zhar, then Ryan Babel and most tellingly Lucas Leiva were thrown on to try to make the breakthrough.
1. Are we allowed to buy and sell the same player within the same league within one season after buying him? 2. I'm not his biggest fan, but I actually kind of think that's unfair. Also, that's £20.3million. If we sell him back to Tottenham do we at least get some of the money back? 3. I'm disappointed in Stevie for opening his gob (is this the resurgence of FootAndMouth!Stevie?) but more so for Mark Lawrenson for telling everyone. What happened to the Liverpool way?

If Pepe Reina wasn't one of the world's best goalkeepers, what would he be?
The answer to that, and a whole host of other probing questions, was revealed last week when the Reds stopper was the mystery guest at Liverpool's Harold House as part of the Barclays Premier League's latest Creating Chances initiative.
The cheerful Spaniard took on the role of quizmaster for the day as he oversaw the Jewish Youth and Community Centre's very own version of 'A Question of Sport', before being subjected to one of the busiest afternoons of his season so far.
It's usually his ability to thwart some of the game's most deadly strikers that occupies Reina's time, but he needed his wits - and not his agility - about him when the children let fly with a series of testing queries.
From his best ever save (Reo Coker in the 2006 FA Cup final) and his most embarrassing moment (the third goal in the 3-0 defeat to Everton in 2006) through to what he would be if he wasn't a footballer (a bull fighter!) - there was no let-up for our favourite number 25.
Having survived the gruelling examination - all conducted with a huge grin on his face - the Spain international took five minutes out to chat to Liverpoolfc.tv about what it means to come along to such event.
"Kids make the best journalists, don't they?" he said with a laugh, after following up the Q&A with an intense photo and autograph session.
The Arsenal and Boro fans like to call him "Hardly ever There" but the ex-Gooner was definitely there on Saturday, and scored a great header to deprive Arsenal of all three points. For that and that alone, I think he deserves his own mini-picspam (5 pictures. but he's hot in them, so that's OK.)
He has the funniest accent I've ever heard. It's like chavvy North London amalgamated with a bit of French and a bit of random stuff. Odd.
Anyway, yeah. I just think he's fit, really. Also, not that anyone's given this much thought, but who do you consider to be the hottest Middlesboro player? I'd say it was a toss-up between Alialialialiadiere and Stewart Downing (who looks somewhat like a bug crossed with that boy from Malcolm in the Middle, but I still would)
Paul Ince's short-lived career as Blackburn manager ended today when he was fired after a run of 11 Premier League matches without a win left the club in the relegation zone.
Although Ince started with three wins in his first six league games, Rovers are now in 19th place and five points from safety with the league's worst defence, putting them in danger of another costly demotion to the second tier.
Ince was just six months into a three-year contract that made him the first black Briton to coach a Premier League team, but his fate seemed decided after chairman John Williams criticised the team's performance in Sunday's 3-0 (NZT) loss at Wigan.
Blackburn decided to dismiss Ince at a board meeting.
"Three wins in 17 games has seen a squad, which finished seventh last season, fall to 19th position," Williams said in a statement today. "We are currently in real danger of becoming detached from the pack.
"The survival of the club in the Premier League is paramount and our focus now is on finding a replacement who will be able to maintain our top-division status."
Liverpool deny Lawrenson's claims that they plan to offload Keane
Liverpool have denied claims that Robbie Keane will be sold in January after their former player turned television pundit Mark Lawrenson cast doubt on the £20.3m striker's Anfield future during an interview with an Irish radio station.
While Marshall declined to comment Liverpool last night denied the pundit's version of events. A club spokesman said: "Mark Lawrenson's remarks are his interpretation of a private chat between the two of them. They do not accurately reflect Steven's opinion of Robbie Keane and they certainly do not tally with Steven's recollection of the conversation itself."
Los Blancos’ Dutch midfielder Rafael van der Vaart could be heading for the Bernabeu exit this June as he struggles to convince his employers.
Rafael van der Vaart was Real Madrid’s only big signing in the summer when he joined from Hamburg for €13 million.
After making a blistering start to his career in the famous white shirt, when he netted four goals in his first three league games, the 25-year-old has almost completely disappeared from view as he struggles to hold down a place in the Madrid first XI despite the team’s incessant injuries.
According to AS, Predrag Mijatovic has lost all confidence in the playmaker and he has been so unimpressed by the Oranje midfielder’s displays that he is now considering putting him up on the transfer market in June next year.
The Madrid-based daily also speculated that former coach, Bernd Schuster had noticed a change in van der Vaart’s mental and physical attitude during training several months ago. Ever since compatriot Wesley Sneijder returned from injury, the ex-Hamburg captain has barely been utilised and he has continually looked lacklustre even when called upon.
Things have not looked any brighter under new coach, Juande Ramos either. The Dutchman was taken off at half-time in the 3-0 win over Zenit St. Petersburg in the Champions League, and was surprisingly overlooked in El Clasico when Sneijder had to be substituted 30 minutes into the game.
Ramos opted to send in the inexperience canterano Miguel Palanca instead, a 20-year-old (who will turn 21 this Thursday) who had never played a single game with Madrid’s first team prior to Saturday’s debut against Barcelona.
The good news for van der Vaart, based on the reports that he will only be transfer listed in the summer trade period, is that Mijatovic is willing to give him until the end of the season to turn his fortunes around.
