Cristiano Ronaldo's New Commerical :D (and gardening!)

Where will Cristiano Ronaldo be in 3 years?

LONDON - Soccer ace Cristiano Ronaldo has found a new way of relaxing before the Champions League final - gardening.

The Manchester United star has developed a passion for pottering which he reckons leaves him completely chilled out.

The 24year-old hunk believes his newfound love will help ensure everything comes up roses when United take on Barcelona, reports The Daily Star.

A Portuguese source said: “Cristiano loves to be outside in the garden when the weather is good.

“He says it makes him so relaxed just looking at the beauty surrounding him.”

Revealed: Steven Gerrard’s pulling technique

How to attract the ladies like a Liverpool captain

One would imagine that a handsome devil like Steven Gerrard would have to beat the ladies off with a shit-covered stick, but the Liverpool star has revealed that he played the role of a nightclub tail chaser in his youth.

Instead of targeting the top talent and facing the possibility of humiliating rejection, Gerrard says he used to focus his energies on the more aesthetically challenging members of the opposite sex. “Go ugly, avoid the rush,” was the maxim he lived by when single.

Day-glo WAG Alex Curran must be delighted by this sexy admission.

Fernando Torres has been named the Liverpool Echo Merseyside Sports Personality of the Year for the calendar year of 2008.

El Nino succeeeds fellow Spaniard Mikel Arteta of Everton to win this accolade, and regards the award as a great personal honour.

"I know that Mikel won it last year because when I have been to his house I have seen the big trophy in his living room," he said.

"Now I am going to take the trophy to my own house and I hope to be able to win it again in the future because that would mean a lot to me.

"It is a privilege for me to receive this trophy because I know that it is a very important award for the people of this city and for the fans.

"When you look at the list of previous winners it is really special to have my name alongside theirs because everyone knows what people like Kenny Dalglish, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher mean to this club and to this city.

"They have all won it before me so to win such a special award after just two years at Liverpool and to be in the thoughts of many people gives me a really special feeling.

"It is always nice to win awards but the most important prizes of all in football are always team trophies.

"I came to Liverpool to win trophies and going two seasons without winning any is a long time for a club like Liverpool.

"The next one needs to be coming soon because we want to win for ourselves, for the club and for the fans.

"For me the team has improved over the last year and we are much closer to United than we were.

"We managed to get more points than any other Liverpool team since the Premier League began and I don't think there is any question that the team is improving and the club is improving.

"Now hopefully we will be able to keep the good players that we have here and also make some good signings in the summer because that would be fantastic for us."

Torres struck his 50th Liverpool goal against Tottenham on Sunday and admitted it was a great feeling.

"It is not easy to score 50 goals, especially when you are just in your second season at a club so I am very proud that I have done this," he said.

"But it is thanks to my team mates I have done this because they create my chances and support me every week.

"Now I want to keep scoring. I have my first 50 and this makes me really happy but now I want the next 50.

"The main thing for me now is to forget the injuries and then if I can play every game in the next season it will be even better for me."

Manchester United fan stabbed, 2 arrested in Rome

A Manchester United fan was hospitalized after suffering a stab wound and two were arrested for drunkenness, police said Wednesday, as up to 50,000 United and Barcelona supporters converged on Rome for the Champions League final.

Huge numbers of police patrolled the city, as some 30,000 fans from England and 20,000 from Spain arrived on dozens of charter flights at Rome's airports.

Rome police said that the Manchester United fan was taken to the Santo Spirito hospital after he was stabbed in his thigh in the early hours of Wednesday morning. They did not identify the victim.

The fan reported he had been attacked by four people near his hotel in the Vatican area.

Alcohol has been banned and there are specialist officers from the UK who are there just to spot potential hooliganism but still I think there will be more violence to come :( Also please no "Manchester United fans deserve this" because they don't, no fan does.

ETA: sapient_pear has pointed out this article: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/8068088.stm which is worth reading, giving a summary of the violence in Rome in the past.

united: a job well done.

one game doesn't take away our accomplishments this season.
one game doesn't take away our passion and belief.
one game most definately does not define our season.


so incredibly proud of every single one of our players. this season has had so many ups and downs and our players have given us so much to cheer for and so much to believe in. this game doesn't take anything away from all that we've accomplished this season. i know that if someone had offered me the club world cup championship, the carling up, the premier league, getting into the semis of the fa cup and getting into the finals of the champions league, i would have taken it no matter what. we've had players from the academy step up and we have a wonderful future ahead of us. thankyou for the memories united because its been one hell of a season.

i just wish fletcher was able to play because it would have been a whole different game. but we will be back next year to take it, platini! mark my words!

kudos to barca too! well done!

wtf, already?

Ryan Babel told he can leave Liverpool

Rafa Benitez is reported to have told winger Ryan Babel he is free to talk to other clubs about a possible £11million move from Liverpool.

Babel arrived at Anfield in July 2007 but despite early promise, he has failed to hold down a regular place in the side and has mainly been used as an impact player from the bench.

He has reportedly asked for assurances that he will be given more of an opportunity next season.

But following discussions with the player's agent, Winnie Haatrecht, Benitez has been unable to offer such guarantees after starting with Babel only six times in the Premier League this term.

It has appeared likely for some time that Benitez would be prepared to listen to offers for Babel, and now he is ready to use the 22 year-old to raise cash.

The youngster, who is priced out of a return to Ajax, from whom he joined the Reds, has admirers in England, with Aston Villa, Tottenham and Arsenal believed to be showing interest.

Benitez needs cash to fund a spending spree that could bring Carlos Tevez, David Silva and Gareth Barry to Merseyside.

Barry's future at Villa is again in doubt with the club's owner Randy Lerner claiming the player would stay at Villa Park after discussions started over a new contract.

But Barry is known to want Champions League football, and Liverpool could sweeten a possible move by including Babel as bait. Villa still want £10m for Barry and a swap deal may suit all parties.

If Rafa ever played FIFA, he would realise how much potential Babel has. But in all seriousness, am I alone in thinking that he needs WAY more of a chance? I really don't see the point of Barry, at all.

Also, fun time already! Only 26 days (or 25, depending on where you are) until the draw for the 2009-2010 Champions League Qualifying Rounds!!!!: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UEFA_Champions_League_2009-10 ....Hibernians got this shit.

Patrice Evra: If Cesc Fabregas Wants To Fight, We Can Do So Off-Field


Patrice Evra: If Cesc Fabregas Wants To Fight,
We Can Do So Off-Field

The Manchester United full-back has blasted the Arsenal midfielder for apparently attempting to injure him during a recent clash at Old Trafford...


Manchester United's Patrice Evra has warned Arsenall's Cesc Fabregas that if it's a fight he is looking for, the French international will only be too happy to oblige.

The left-back is unhappy with a tackle made by the Spanish midfielder during the goalless draw at Old Trafford on May 16.

Evra has accused Fabregas, who picked up a booking for the
challenge, of trying to injure him so that he would not be fit to play in Wednesday's Champions League final against Barcelona.

"If it amuses you to hit people, you do boxing, you do teakwondo
, whatever you want. But you don't play football," Evra is quoted as saying by The Sun.

"We will see each other again off the pitch and there will not be a referee to give me a red card.

"I was really disappointed. Everyone understood that he wanted to hurt me."

The former Monaco star believes that the 22-year-old took exception to his comments that the Champions League semi-final between the two clubs had been like boys against men after Manchester United won 4-1 on aggregate over the two legs.

"It was because of what I said after the Champions League semi-final: 11 boys against 11 men," Evra added.

"I said it and I thought it. But in this world, as soon as you say what you think then you are seen as arrogant."

Diego moving from Werder Bremen to Juventus


Werder Bremen midfielder Diego is moving to Juventus, the Bundesliga club confirmed Tuesday.

The transfer deal is worth $34.32 million and with bonuses could reach $37.83 million, Bremen said, which would make it the biggest in Bundesliga history.

Diego arrived in Bremen from Porto three seasons ago and developed into the top playmaker in the Bundesliga.

The Brazilian's last game for Werder will be Saturday's German Cup final against Bayer Leverkusen.

Bremen said it was interested in signing Marko Marin from Borussia Moenchengladbach as Diego's successor.

"We are going to see in the next few days what they want for him," Bremen's manager Klaus Allofs said.

At the same time, Werder's 33-year-old captain Frank Baumann said he was ending his career and will work as one of Allofs' assistants.
