Sagnol announces retirement
France and Bayern Munich defender retires after injury fails to heal

Bayern Munich defender Willy Sagnol has retired from football after failing to recover from an Achilles tendon injury.

The 31-year-old French international suffered the injury at Euro 2008 and he has not played since.

It brings to an end an illustrious career which included five league titles with Bayern Munich, four German Cups and also an UEFA Champions League winner's medal in 2001.

Sagnol was also part of the French team which finished runners-up to Italy at the 2006 World Cup.

Announcing his retirement, he said: "The evidence is there - it's an injury which won't heal. Surgery is not possible. The only solution is to stop."


a very nice article on the bayern site.

Steven Gerrard has revealed that matches don't come much bigger than this evening's winner-takes-all FA Cup fourth round replay with Everton.
After two successive 1-1 draws, both teams go into what will be the third Merseyside derby in a matter of weeks knowing a winner must be decided on the night.

The Reds skipper found the net in Liverpool's league game and FA Cup clash with the Blues at Anfield, but insisted the only thing that will matter in this Goodison Park encounter is getting through to the next round of the competition.

"Games don't come much bigger than this - playing against your local rivals in the FA Cup," said Gerrard. "We know Everton will be just as hard to beat as they were when we played at Anfield.

"I've been fortunate enough to score a couple of goals against Everton in the last two derbies, but it doesn't matter who scores as long as we go through.

"There has been a lot of frustration around lately with the draws we have been getting in games that we should have been winning, so it was really good to get a win under our belts against Chelsea.

"The important thing now is for us to take the momentum and the confidence into the next game - obviously starting with the game against Everton at Goodison where we want to try and get into the last 16 of the cup.

"That's all that matters in the cup. It's not about who does or doesn't score - it's all about winning the game."

Gerrard also believes that Liverpool's chances of progressing in the cup have been given a boost by the return to form of Fernando Torres, who struck a late brace to see off title rivals Chelsea on Sunday.

"It was just a matter of time," said Gerrard. "I could see him getting slightly frustrated at times because a player of his ability expects to score in every game.

"But after going through the kind of problems with injury he has had it's all about being patient and getting your full fitness back.

"You can see it's there now with Fernando. The sharpness is there and, like I said, it was always going to be a matter of time before he got back among the goals because he is one of the top centre-forwards in the world and you can't keep him down forever.


So...who's nervous?

Oasis dedicate Don’t Look Back In Anger performance to Kaka

"Oasis dedicated a performance of Don’t Look Back In Anger to Kaka at their Milan gig on Monday night. Noel Gallagher, a Manchester City fan, announced before that song that is was dedicated to “Signor Kaka”.

I believe the most pertinent line was supposed to be: “Step inside the eye of your mind/Don’t you know you might find a better place to play.” Neutrals might argue that Manchester City is, in fact, not a better place to play than AC Milan."

OT: Awesome crowd. If I was a musician, I would live for moments on which thousands of people would sing/chant my songs.

Sick of this bastard yet?

Groupama Seguros is launching an online TV channel and they're inaugurating it with a short film titled "Me siento seguro" (I Feel Safe) directed by Goya Award winner Javier Fesser and starring Iker as himself. They make it sound spectacular but I'm sure it's just another of those hilarious ads :D

Tomorrow at 13:00h they will be broadcasting live from the Groupama offices at Madrid's Plaza de las Cortes the press conference in which they will premiere this...film

Here's the website

A TRANSSEXUAL, angry at an NHS advertising campaign that depicts a man wearing makeup, says her lifestyle has been exploited for the sake of a poster.

Lucy Smith thinks the NHS should have been more sensitive to the transsexual community in Warrington when it developed a poster warning women drinkers they could end up looking like men. [Source]


I was trying to be studious tonight, and was about to start reading for Social Anthropology when I found this little article on our beloved striker.

The anthropologists of my textbook are obvious Chelski fans. Actually, it's fairly well written.

The full article is linked in the image to the above.

This post has been brought to you by some major GQ action?!?

"Andrei was a boy of diverse interests. Arshavin also opted to take a fashion design course at a technology and design school in St Petersburg where he opted for a sewing course. Later he suggested that the reason he chose the course was that he was the only male amongst a class of 20 attractive females. He once wrote a thesis on the development of the sports wear production process, and graduated with a diploma in fashion design."
