Number 1 reason why Xabi feels the hot, burning coals of hate when he sees Frank. XABI NEVER FORGETS.

If we are going to fight though, we should do it all sexily like Blair and Serena:

Holy Last Minute Transfer Window! Chelsea to sign Quaresma before Spurs get him!

Breaking News: Chelsea May Hijack Tottenham Hotspur's Ricardo Quaresma Bid





In keeping tradition with Harry Redknapp's wheelin' dealin' ethos that embodies his transfer windows, the cockney boss has looked to add his increasing January imports with out-of-favour and out-of-form winger Quaresma.

Ricardo Quaresma has endured a torrid time in his rookie season with Internazionale in Serie A. Jose Mourinho's dissatisfaction with the player has resulted in the Portuguese international's omission from the Italian giants Champions League squad for the knock-out stages.

The decision to leave Quaresma, 25, out of the European squad added fuel to the speculative fire that the former Porto and Barcelona player could soon be on his way to the Premier League.

Reports surfacing an hour ago stated that Quaresma was already in London ready to thrash out personal terms should an agreement be in place, as text messages flooded into the BBC from people claiming they had sighted him in the White Hart Lane area.

However, any deal to Spurs could about to be usurped by west London club Chelsea.

OH SNAP. Maybe Roman woke up and went, "Hey, my team is falling apart. NEW PLAYERS NOW PLZ."

And yes, it's goal.com. But it's being picked up everywhere, and they were the first to mention it. Thoughts, my fellow Chelskis?



EDITED TO ADD:

It's done, he's ours!

LIVERPOOL AGREE TO SELL KEANE TO SPURS
Paul Rogers 02 February 2009

Liverpool Football Club have this afternoon confirmed they have reached agreement with Spurs for the transfer of Robbie Keane back to the White Hart Lane club.

Having earlier granted the striker permission to talk to his former club, a spokesman for LFC told Liverpoolfc.tv: "Liverpool Football Club have reached agreement with Tottenham Hotspur for the sale of Robbie Keane."

In the beginning, I really hated him because I thought he didn't deserve his price tag and his wages could've been used to fund other player's transfers to us/raise the wages of the more deserving. And at first he didn't impress me. Now, however, it's evident he's being used as a pawn between Rafa and the board (Rafa asked for a sofa, he gets, in his opinion, a lampshade). If I can hate Real Madrid for doing that to Michael, then I'd be a hypocrite to not realize that the same is/was being done to Robbie. So, I'm sorry Robbie, that the team you supported as a child did this to you. It was just the worst time to come. :/

And God, he's so adorable sitting there and watching us. Rafa just hates the Irish.

'Why do you stick your hair up?'... Tiny tots interview Terry, Lampard and Walcott!

*DISCLAIMER!* This is the first time I've posted on ONTD football... and LJ... so feel free to remove if it doesn't work, but I hope  it does... I love ONTD Footall, it is by far the best football website out there! xx

In the Guardian Weekend on Saturday, I nearly choked with laughter reading these articles on the train... 3 kids, aged 5, 6 and 9 interview JT, Lamps and Theo, and it's super cute, with questions such as 'Why do you stick your hair up' and 'Do you like any girls'... Here's some bits of the interviews, with links to the whole thing, which is easier to read...

John Terry

Theo Walcott with kid

Segment with JT by Oscar, 5:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2009/jan/31/john-terry-interview 


Oscar I've got one [question] here. Why do you stick your hair up?

JT I stick my hair up... [Laughs] to try and look good - the players give me a bit of stick otherwise, you know, if I leave it flat. So I try and put a bit of gel on it and stick it up. Shall I put it flat, do you think? Do you think I'm due a new hairstyle?

Oscar I like my hair better down.

JT You're like my little boy. I try and put his hair up as well, and he says no. He doesn't want gel in it either.

JT Shall I take you round and meet some of the players after as well?

Oscar No [Laughs].

JT No? Are you a little bit shy?

Oscar Yeah.

JT I think Frank's having a massage. We'll go and see Lamps, yeah? Frank Lampard.

Oscar OK... Would you ever play for a club other than Chelsea?

JT No, I love it at Chelsea. I've been here since I was 14, and I'm 28 now. All my friends are here, so I'm going to stay for ever unless Chelsea tell me I've got to go, which maybe one day they will, but for now I'm definitely staying. Is it your favourite club?

Oscar Yeah.

JT Yeah? Good boy.

Oscar My favourite country's England.

JT Mine, too! [Laughs]

Bit from Theo, by Jack, 6:

Jack Do you like any girls?

TW Do I like any girls?

Jack Yep. [Giggles]

TW I like my girlfriend, yeah. I like Angelina Jolie. But I've sort of gone off her now she's getting older! I love my girlfriend, Mel, but she knows I've got a little sweet spot for Jessica Alba and Jennifer Love Hewitt. She won't kill me for saying that.

Jack's dad You've got a girlfriend, haven't you, Jack?

Jack No!

TW You do, I bet you do!

Jack I used to, but I ditched her.


Lamps by Freddie, 9:

Freddie What has been the best day of your life?

FL I've got two. Well, I've got three actually. Two, when both my girls were born. And in football terms, when we won the league and I scored two goals again Bolton. Chelsea hadn't won the league for 50 years so to be able to do that, and put smiles on all the Chelsea fans' faces, was a very special day.

Video:

4.55 for Lamps, 2.28 for Terry and and 0.25 for Walcott! Hope it works!!!!!

P.s. I don't know how to do tags... Je suis desolee bbs
