Premier League may be loads quicker than La Liga, but are they quicker than FC Barcelona? Some people think their triangles are stupid but whatever I DIG THEM because these are triangles sculpted by gladiators and artisans

Micah Richards has swine flu

England footballer Micah Richards has been stranded in a Cyprus resort after contracting swine flu.

The Manchester City defender, 21, was struck down with the bug while on holiday and is taking Tamiflu medication but has been told not to fly home until he has a clean bill of health.

The news comes as the first British case of a healthy person dying from swine flu was announced last night.

A patient from Essex succumbed to the virus - the first death in the UK of someone without any underlying health problems.

It is believed to be the first time a healthy person has died of swine flu outside the Americas, where the outbreak started.

Richards said: 'At first I thought it was a really bad chest infection, or maybe alcohol poisoning. I felt so weak I couldn't move or eat.'
'When I was told I had swine flu all sorts of things started going through my mind. You see on the news people dying of it,' he told The Sun.

The footballer - who is staying in a five-star hotel near the resort of Ayia Napa - said he hoped to be able to fly home tomorrow.

the rest of the article just talks about swine flu in general

Hopefully this'll clear up before Man City fans have to get masks with the club crest on them like this Velez Sarsfield fan. :\



Nabil El Zhar has signed an extension to his current Liverpool contract that will keep him at Anfield until 2012.
The 22-year-old, who made 19 appearances for the Reds' first-team last season, follows Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres, Dirk Kuyt, Yossi Benayoun and Daniel Agger in committing his long-term future to the club.

The Moroccan international joined Liverpool from Saint Etienne in October 2006.

The youngster was born in France and played for Les Bleus at youth level before defecting to Morocco, where his parents were raised.

He first caught the eye during the 2005 World Youth Championships when he helped his country reach the semi-final stage.

Our No.31, who can play on either flank or behind the striker, made his Reds senior debut as a 71st minute substitute against Portsmouth on November 29, 2006. It was the first of three appearances in 2006-07.

The following year saw El Zhar score a 25-yard stunner in front of the Kop during his first start of the campaign against Cardiff City in the Carling Cup.

He found the net again during his senior bow for Morocco versus Belgium in March 2008 before helping Liverpool Reserves clinch the 2007-08 national title.

Last campaign was El Zhar's most productive one yet at Anfield as he played a prominent role in some of the Reds' dramatic early season comebacks, leading manager Rafa Benitez to describe the winger as a 'lucky charm'.
