I hope that I'm not dreaming.

Have you been watching the Bundesliga?

Remember when I said that I would do this:

Q: Do you know how many gols he scored today?

Four. Which officially puts him right about. . .

1 Grafite VfL Wolfsburg 23
1 Mario Gomez VfB Stuttgart 23

Grafite who?

Basically, BOBW is on fire; he's scored a whole lotta goals since the restart of the Bundesliga in February.

I may not like him on the nationalmannschaft, but he is undeniably talented for club.
So, haters to da left.


This post is to remind us all of all the good things that football can accomplish.

Yeah, we all know the twat Didi can be. Yeah, we all know that he dives, and is need of serious anger management classes.

But at the end of the day the issues that are talked about in these videos and programs are more important than any result or scoresheet. And we can say that just being knocked out of the Champions' League.

So, if you insist upon being a Negative-Nancy you don't have to comment on this post.

This post is brought to you by me and bunnysayboo who care about changing the world and you should to. <3

I swear this is all I post about:

But I love discussion and I think it's interesting.

Is it time to change the game?

In the past six seasons, only Everton (in 2006) have broken the grip of the 'big four' clubs (Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United) and qualified for the Champions League

As the 'Big Four' clubs dominate yet another finale in the Premier League, The Independent today asks readers if the beautiful game can be made any better.

Interviews by Nick Harris

Today we're asking you for ideas. The subject is something we all like to talk about: football. The question is this: can the beautiful game be made any better, in this country at least?

This may seem like a strange time to be asking. After all, for the fifth consecutive season an English club will be in the Champions League final – what more do we want? Well, for the fourth season running, the "big four" clubs (Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal) will comprise the top four in the Premier League. They will again be England's representatives in the Champions League and, through the riches available in Europe's glittering competition, tighten their grip on the domestic game.

This week, the status quo prompted the culture secretary, Andy Burnham, to meet Richard Scudamore, chief executive of the Premier League, in an attempt to find ways to share the wealth among other clubs and restore some competitive balance. Early indications are that Burnham received little encouragement. Premier League clubs are private companies who are only likely to share more of their income if forced to, and which they know is very unlikely.

So, do you think anything needs to be done? If so, what?

That was me.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed that Nicklas Bendtner was 'setup' after the striker was pictured leaving a London bar in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Photographs showed the Dane looking worse for wear, with his jeans below his waist, following the Gunners' UEFA Champions League semi-final exit against Manchester United.

Wenger has since confirmed that 21-year-old Bendtner has been fined by the club for his actions, but the French coach has suggested someone pulled his jeans down.

"I was angry - but he has been set up," said Wenger.

He added: "People make the story that he was drunk. He was not drunk. He did not put his trousers down, somebody did it for him and somebody was posted there with a camera."


Oh no....

THE body of Spurs star Wilson Palacios’ kidnapped brother has been found, it was believed last night.

Teen Edwin Palacios was snatched from his parents’ house in Honduras by armed bandits in October 2007.

But the 16-year-old was never seen again — despite £14million Tottenham ace Wilson paying a £125,000 ransom.

Cops dug up the youngster’s remains in a mountainous area of Honduras after two jailed gang members admitted to the killing and told them the location.

 I was just watching Gillette Soccer Saturday on Sky and they have confirmed that Palacios will not feature today for family reasons.

D.Silva for El País

Seems like today is a David Silva day for the press. Here's a nice article from El País's website where he mainly talks about his vision of football and his beginnings. It's in spanish, though.

David Silva: "El estilo tiene que ser importante"

A menos de un mes de que se lo rifen los clubes más poderosos, David Silva (Arguineguín, Gran Canaria; 1986) sigue cultivando un perfil pretendidamente bajo. Tan alejado como puede de los focos fuera del campo, tan cerca de ellos cuando entra en juego. Azotado por las deudas, el Valencia dispone de esta pequeña joya cuyo valor crece cada vez que entra en Mestalla, como esta noche (22.00, La Sexta) ante el Madrid, el club que le rechazó cuando tenía 11 años. Éstas son sus reflexiones.

Steven Gerrard helped fire Liverpool back to the top of the Premier League table - and then called on Manchester City to do the Reds a favour at Old Trafford tomorrow.
Two goals from Gerrard and a late Ryan Babel strike ensured Rafael Benitez's men once again leapfrogged United into top spot, with Alex Ferguson's men playing one of their two games in hand against their city rivals on Sunday lunchtime.

United now play three times before Liverpool take to the field again - and Gerrard is keeping his fingers crossed the Reds' title dreams are still alive by the time our next match at West Brom on Sunday comes around.

"It was important for us to keep going and do our job," said the skipper. "We have to win our remaining games and put pressure on United.

"If they win their games then fair play to them and they will deserve it, but at the moment we deserve to be at the top of the league.

"They have a tough game against Man City tomorrow. City have run into a bit of form and it's a derby match which is never easy. We just have to wait and hope City can do us a favour.

"Whatever happens now, though, this season has been one of progression. We're on May 9 and we're still in the title race and we haven't been able to say that for a long time. That shows we have good players and a good togetherness.

"We're still in there fighting and we'll keep going, but if it's not to be then we'll learn from where we have gone wrong this season and look to put it right next year."
