"If I haven't seen it, it's new to me!"

Old article is old, but it still brings lulz. Apologies in advance if this has been posted already.

Nereida Gallardo's "Ass-Guard"

Nereida Gallardo, the hot girlfriend of football star Cristiano Ronaldo, has some characters tattooed on her lower back.


I would assume there are more characters tattooed below her bikini bottom, otherwise the exposed portion of means "armed friend", or in this case: "ass-guard".

It sounds like a punchline for some anti-anal-sex joke.

it's true, wenger really does have a type

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has targeted Valencia's David Silva as his one big summer transfer priority.

Although the Gunners struggled to raise the £13million to snatch Andrei Arshavin in a controversial postdeadline deal this month, Wenger has made it known the club will have to find the £20m from somewhere to land Silva.

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez stalls signing a new contract

la masia graduate reina on champions league clash

Jose Reina was a Barcelona fan as a boy, but that is not the only reason the Liverpool goalkeeper so desperately wants to finish on the winning side against Real Madrid next week.

Reina has never been on the winning side against Madrid at the Bernabeu.

He gets another chance on Wednesday when Liverpool face Madrid in the last-16 of this season's Champions League.

I can't understand my own players, admits Capello

Paul Gascoigne has long since hung up his boots and Jamie Carragher is enjoying his self-imposed international retirement. But, even without the pair intonating through team meetings in their respective broad Geordie and abrasive Scouse dialects that even team-mates have said are, at times, incomprehensible, Fabio Capello has admitted that he is still struggling to get the hang of the northern accents in his England squad.

The Italian reflected on his progress so far in his adopted country in an interview with Sky Italia last night and, while the cliché insists that football is actually a universal language, he conceded that the finer points of some of his players' inflection remain something of a mystery. "I must admit I have a little trouble understanding northerners," said Capello, who hails from San Canzian d'Isonzo in Gorizia, northern Italy, where some of the locals speak Friulian and others even prefer Venetian. "When we talk about football, the vocabulary is fairly limited. But when we get away from that it becomes more difficult."

*le sigh*


Rafa Benitez insisted Liverpool could still win the Premier League after Sunday's 1-1 draw with Man City - but only if they beat Man Utd in their own backyard on March 14.
The Reds are seven points behind the leaders with 12 games remaining after second-half goals from Craig Bellamy and Dirk Kuyt.

"Clearly it's more difficult now," the boss told reporters. "We have to win against Middlesbrough and Sunderland and then we have to start thinking about winning at Old Trafford.

"I have confidence we can beat Middlesbrough and Sunderland and then it might be a different situation.

"It's not easy because United can win games even without playing well, but there are still 12 games. You cannot say everything is finished.

"Clearly if we want to reduce the gap we have to win our next games and then beat United."

Liverpool crafted a series of chances in the first half but were stunned by Bellamy's deflected opener early in the second.

Benitez added: "It was a bad result because we could have done better with the chances we had in the first half.

"We controlled the game but you have to score first. We conceded a deflected goal and that changed the game because they have pace and ability - things were more open so they were dangerous on the counter attack.

"After we scored the goal we had chances and could have won the game."

Asked how a team with just one away win this season could hold Liverpool, Benitez responded: "When teams come to Anfield it's a window of opportunity for some players. City have players with quality and they worked hard."

Next up for Liverpool is a trip to Real Madrid on Wednesday, for which Benitez is hoping to have skipper Steven Gerrard available after a hamstring injury.

He added: "We will see after training tomorrow and then we'll decide with him and the doctor. He's close. The decision is not easy but he's improving."
