Frank Lampard//John Terry Picspam

I had some time on my hands so I decided to do a picspam on Frank Lampard//John Terry.
JT is an inspirational leader, brilliant defender and the best captain any team could ask for. I love him so much that he inspired my LJ~handle. Frank is a superb pro, amazing midfielder and awesome vice-captain. Together, these two represent the heart and soul of the team. Plus, they are hot.

Queiroz to call up injured Ronaldo for play-off

Portugal coach Carlos Queiroz will name Cristiano Ronaldo in his squad to face Bosnia-Herzegovina in a crucial World Cup qualifying double-header later this month.

Cristiano Ronaldo injured



Collapse )</div>

The current FIFA World Player of the Year has not played since limping off early in Portugal's win over Hungary a month ago. Reports earlier this week suggested he will not be fit enough to play again until December.

Queiroz has pulled Portugal from what seemed like certain elimination to a second chance play-off against a nation which has never before played at the World Cup finals. The Portuguese are hot favourites but the coach is eager to have his star player available.

The news is sure to anger Real, who were furious with Portugal for risking the £80 million man against Hungary, which led to an extended lay-off. That has coincided with a dip in form for a Real side which had started excellently with Ronaldo hitting the ground running.

Ronaldo has missed Madrid's last seven matches after initially suffering an injury to his right ankle during the Champions League match with Marseille on September 30.

The winger has met with Dutch specialist Professor Niek van Dijk in Amsterdam after tests conducted by Madrid on Wednesday revealed that no improvement had been made since undergoing an MRI scan a week before.

Van Dijk, who operated on the 24-year-old's right ankle in the summer of 2008, advised Ronaldo to continue his treatment before returning for a fresh evaluation in 15 days' time.

Portugal are due to entertain Bosnia in Lisbon on November 14 with the return meeting scheduled for Zenica four days later.

Queiroz told Portuguese television channel TVI24: "I'm going to call up Cristiano Ronaldo and I hope that he can help us, even if it is only for a few minutes.

"The specialists have to make the decision on if he can play. Naturally we are concerned, because the most important thing is the player. We want a great Ronaldo, we want a fit player and the first consideration is to know whether he is able to play and contribute anything to the national team.''

Queiroz is set to name his squad on Sunday.

Ines asked me to share some of the match pics over here. As we are all aware, Real Madrid hatred is easily sparked which is why I don't usually post the game pic spams here. This is the last time I will. If you want to see the rest or are interested in future game pics, they are part of the public side of dailydoseofiker Thanks and have a good day.

Oh and mods, a "There are tooo many freakin' tags" tag would be amazing!!!

oh god please yes

Rafael Benitez is hoping to have seven of his injured stars available for selection against Birmingham City on Monday night.
The boss will make a late decision on whether to start inspirational skipper Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres and he could also be boosted by the availability of Glen Johnson, Martin Skrtel, Fabio Aurelio, Albert Riera and Nabil El Zhar.

Speaking exclusively to, after Saturday morning's training session, Benitez said: "We have a lot of good news with players coming back from injury and they all took part in a light training session this morning.

"Steven trained on Friday with the physios and did a light training session today with the team and did well. He is improving and has more confidence.

"We will decide on Monday before the game if he can play. He hasn't been training for a long time so we have to be careful.

"With Fernando we know he has to keep working with the physios and we will see how he progresses. We will see how is he is because he still has some pain so we will decide if he can play on Monday.

"Johnson did a light session today and will train again on Sunday. If he is okay then hopefully he will be available to play against Birmingham.

"Martin Skrtel, Fabio Aurelio and Nabil El Zhar are doing well and were also involved in the training session so we will decide if they can play on Monday.

"Albert Riera also trained after his hamstring injury and that is good news for us.

"You can see we have had a lot of young players on the bench in recent weeks but we have more players back in training now. It's good for me and an option we didn't have available before."

Jamie Carragher will sit out this game as he serves a one-match ban for his sending-off against Fulham but Alberto Aquilani is in line for a first taste of the Anfield experience after he was an unused substitute in Lyon.

The Reds No.4 is unlikely to start against Alex McLeish's side but he is in the squad and the boss added: "His match fitness is still a problem.

"We are hopeful of having some players fit and available so maybe he can wait and change the game if it's necessary.

"We were controlling the game in Lyon and Lucas and Javier Mascherano were doing a very good job. When we scored we didn't want to change the shape. Aquilani was better after his virus and could have played some part but hopefully now he will be better for Monday."
I would love them all to be back but not if they're not fully fit, we don't need them out for months :|
Oh and have a Gernando gif :D

Cristiano Ronaldo Has More Star Quality Than David Beckham

Zinedine Zidane believes that Cristiano Ronaldo was always destined to play for Real Madrid and that the Portuguese is now the biggest star in world football.

The French legend is delighted that the former Manchester United forward completed a move to the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer for a record breaking €94 million.

Having been part of the Galactico era at Madrid, Zidane is well placed to judge, and he thinks that Ronaldo is even bigger than David Beckham.

“Cristiano Ronaldo was destined to end up at Real Madrid - he is the perfect player for this club," he was quoted as saying by Sport.

“He has star quality like no other in the football world right now – not even my good friend David Beckham can compete with him anymore.”

Zidane is back at Real Madrid in an ambassadorial role and is pleased with his position at the club.

“Ever since I ended my career I hoped I could return to Real Madrid in some capacity. The club has played a huge part in my life," he continued.

“Don Florentino Perez contacted me about being an advisor on sporting matters – that was a dream role for me because I know football and I know a lot of people.”
