Inter Star Zlatan Ibrahimovic Hails ‘Scary’ Jose Mourinho

‘Ibra’ has explained why the Portuguese is the perfect coach for Inter and has insisted that the Nerazzurri can stun Manchester United next week.

Inter will travel to England to face Premier League leaders Manchester United in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie after a goalless draw in the first clash at San Siro.

“I am relaxed and very confident,” Nerazzurri striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“They are a great side but so are we. We can do what is needed to progress to the next round. It won’t be easy but, if we want to lift the Champions League trophy, we have to win games like this one.”
The Swedish international is thriving under new boss Jose Mourinho this term and, with 14 goals to his name, is already within striking distance of last season’s tally of 17 in Serie A.

“It’s not easy to manage a great team like Inter - you need to have a great personality to deal with 24-25 champions,” said 27-year-old, pondering the Portuguese coach.

“Sometimes, you have to be pushed to understand you need to do more and it’s good if someone ends up being scared.

“I love this kind of mentality [in Mourinho]. I grew up at Ajax under Co Adriaanse, who was more or less similar to him. I like that a coach treats you badly from time to time and uses tough words. If someone tells me ‘you sucked’, it works for me.”

More Voyeur For Your Pleasure


It seems that Mr. Wenger has no idea how old his players actually are:

"It's been difficult for Nicklas because, as an Arsenal player, you are always compared to the great players from the past. You have to accept that he is a 19-year-old who will get better with time."

Rest of article here.

BB is 21. I am now waiting for him to age Arshavin, my guess is he goes with 12.

And look I got a graphic this time. LOL.

you want some eggnog with that?


Javier Mascherano today hailed striker David Ngog after the French youngster netted his first league goal for the Reds to help them to a much needed victory over Sunderland.
Ngog struck after 52 minutes to finally break Sunderland's resistance, and then set up the second for Yossi Benayoun who scored his second in three games to ensure the Reds closed the gap on league leaders Manchester United to just four points.

"It was very important for David to score because he is a young player and this goal will give him more confidence," said Mascherano.

"You can see in every training session that he is working very hard and when he is given his chance in the team he has to try and take it and by scoring a goal and doing a good job for the team. He can be happy with his performance.

"It is really good for him and I am very happy for him because he deserved his goal."

Mascherano - who impressed in an unfamiliar right back role last night - was pleased Liverpool went some way to erasing the memories of Saturday's defeat at Middlesbrough with a well deserved win, and he insists the Reds will continue doing their best to chase down United at the top of the table.

"Obviously we were really disappointed with the result at Middlesbrough and we knew that we needed to win against Sunderland," he added.

"We are not as close to Man United as we would like to be but we have to carry on fighting to see what happens.

"There is no point in looking at the standings in the league table, all we can do is concentrate on every game, try to win them and then see what happens.

"We had some chances in the first half but could not score and maybe the supporters and ourselves were a little bit nervous because in the last game we could not take our chances.

"This made it important that we scored in the second half because we knew this would help the team to play well and allow the people to go home happy.

"It was an important victory for us and we are still fighting. At the time being we are fighting for second place with Chelsea and after that we will see what happens."


There is no Ngog tag??

“Well you are ugly!”

Ron in tunnel bust-up

CRISTIANO RONALDO was involved in a furious half-time tunnel bust-up with Newcastle’s Steven Taylor last night.

The Portuguese winger was fuming with the England Under-21 skipper after a clash seconds before the break.

Taylor looked lucky to escape a red card, after appearing to hit Ronaldo in the side of the face and leaving the United ace stretched out on the turf.

Ronaldo felt he was clobbered by Taylor, who got only a booking from ref Steve Bennett, and let fly with a verbal blast at the Toon’s style.

It was claimed he said: “Your style of football is s**t". Taylor hit back and snapped: “Well you are ugly!”

It was a nasty flashpoint in a clash United won with goals from Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov.

Boss Alex Ferguson was just relieved to see his side stretch their lead at the top of the Premier League back to seven points.

United had been rocked by Peter Lovenkrands giving the Geordies a ninth-minute lead.

The goal ended United keeper Edwin van der Sar’s unbeaten run at 1,311 minutes.

Ferguson said: “Coming back from 1-0 down to win is a great result for us.

“Newcastle were pumped up. We could have gone two-down. It was a hairy spell.”

[immature humor moment!]

Okay, I have a confession to make. I have sort of a ~*thing*~ for the Zoolander/WHAM!/gas fight .gif. First, it was the Democratic Party versions that had me in a tizzy, but lo and behold not only presidents have had their heads poorly photoshopped onto Ben Stiller's physique, but Stevie G! And Cesc! And some dudes from Neverton that I don't care about! (Sorry, Everton fans.) So, in a random act of immaturity, I share with you my favorites.

Islanders beat Marathon 1-0 on late goal, advance to Champions League semifinals

3/4/2009 - SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras – Nicholas Addlery scored on a counter-attack 15 seconds into extra time and the Puerto Rico Islanders beat CD Marathon 1-0 on Wednesday to advance to the semifinals of the CONCACAF Champions League.

Addlery drove a right-footed shot from the top of the penalty area to cap a 3-1 aggregate victory and advance to face the winner between Mexico City rivals Pumas UNAM and Cruz Azul March 24-26 and April 7-9.

The Islanders, which plays in the United Soccer Leagues’ First Division – the second tier of the North American professional game, won the first leg 2-1 in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, last week, and were withstanding repeated offensive thrusts from Marathon when Addlery assured the victory.

Pumas and Cruz Azul were to face each other later Wednesday. Marathon’s exit leaves the Champions League only with clubs from Mexico and the USL. Puerto Rico’s fellow USL club the Montreal Impact leads its quarterfinal series against Santos Laguna 2-0 heading into their second leg Thursday in Torreon, Mexico.

Marathon manager Manuel Keosseian was forced to make two first-half substitutions due to injuries. Mariano Acevedo entered in the 12th minute to replaced Astor Henriquez, who was hurt in a collision with Cristian Arrieta, and Oscar Bonilla, who appeared to have a right hamstring ailment, had to come off in the 32nd for Orvin Paz.

It seemed not to have negatively affected Marathon, which dominated possession and chances. Marathon, which is in third place in the Honduran league, had and early chance in the 19th minute when Juan Carlos Garcia put a header from the edge of the 6-yard box off the right post.

Marathon, a six-time Honduran champion which already has qualified for next year’s Champions League, continued to create chances in the second half and came close a second time when Saul Martinez, hit the crossbar from distance in the 82nd.

But as it pushed more players, Marathon twice nearly was caught on the counter before Addlery’s goals. Kendall Jagdeosingh, who had one of Puerto Rico’s two goals in the first leg, forced Marathon goalkeeper Juan Obelar into diving save in the 60th minute, and Adderly’s shot from distance seven minutes later also required a reaction effort from Obelar.

Puerto Rico goalkeeper Bill Gaudette, who led the USL with 10 shutouts last year, was very active, frequently punching balls clear and coming off his line to defuse dangerous situations.
