Spain star Torres has been presented with a Barclays Golden Boot '10-goal' Landmark Award after becoming the first player in the Barclays Premier League to hit double figures in the 2009/10 season.

Despite a recent injury setback, Torres has been in scintillating form in the opening months of the 2009/10 season and netted his first goal in the 4-0 victory over Stoke City at Anfield.

Five goals during the month of September, including a hat-trick in the 6-1 victory over Hull City, saw 'El Nino,' as he is otherwise known scoop the Barclays Player of the Month Award for the second time in his career.

Torres will now receive £10,000 to donate to a charity of his choice.

Once he regains full fitness, Torres stands a good chance of winning the Barclays Golden Boot Award at the end of the season, and currently sits second only to Tottenham Hotspur striker Jermain Defoe who tops the scorers charts with 11, after scoring five times against Wigan Athletic on Sunday.

JT up for international grabbing + more

JOHN TERRY IS UP FOR SALE

This is either the worst PR attempt in the World or just too plain ridiculous to be true.



An email was sent out last night and John Terry was the main subject.

The image is blurry so here's what it says

-The FIFA 2010 World Cup in South Africa is fast approaching! With this in mind Riviera Entertainment is identifying suitable commercial endorsement opportunities for its client John Terry for the period building up to the finals- and beyond.

- If you are looking for a fresh approach for your brand during the time leading up to the World Cup, or feel it would benefit from being associated with a leader- especially relevant in today's ultra-competitive marketplace- then why not let the nation's football captain get your message across.

-John Terry is able to create effective brand awareness and endorse products and services globally.

John Terry is:
- British Sporting hero
-England's football captain
-World Cup 2018 Ambassador
-Football icon
-Dad of the year 2008
(how does that help?)
-voted as one of the World's most influencial people (the incorrect spelling only adds fuel to fire :[ )

The incredibly chessy looking advert filled up inboxes all over the football community. Even if it's not the case, things look as if John Terry, who makes nearly £170 000 a week, is looking to make more.

Daily Mail paints it as a desperate attempt to maximise profit through a series of embarrasing boasts. The small PR company in Enfield came up with this brilliant plan to sell Terry to the companies of the World- The profit could easily be millions. It could end up costing him, though. FIFA may sue Terry for unlicenced use of their World Cup 2010 logo. Also, he is now in an unfavourable position with the FA as the ad paints him as someone with 'greed'.

JT already has enough scandal circulating him. His mother and mother-in-law were caught with £800 of clothes and groceries from Tescos and Marks & Spencer. Terry's father, on the other hand, was caught on film trying to pass a Class A drug to an undercover reporter.

It is said, however, that there is no such thing as bad press.


LIVERPOOL SAYS N-to-da-iz-O TO EVERTON



Everton Head Honcho, Robert Elstone, raised talk of a possible 'ground sharing' situation with Liverpool FC.

“A shared stadium is an option perhaps if it’s affordable,” said Elstone. “Where we can raise money, potentially Liverpool will have to contribute to that. Liverpool City Council perhaps might need to find some money. Our history is one of creation and innovation and, if we’re the first major English club to look at sharing , we’re not scared of those decisions.”

However, Liverpool cheif, Christian Purslow, is known to have denied Elstone of his proposal of clubbing together. : [

Planning permission has been granted for Liverpool’s blueprint, which has already cost £18million for feasibility studies and improvements to the local area. Work ground to another frustrating halt in September 2008 owing to the global credit crisis.

Purslow is currently in the process of trying to raise £100m for a 25 per cent stake in Liverpool which would dilute the shareholdings of George Gillett and Tom Hicks, minimise debt and allow work to be carried on.

Everton, on the other hand, need to either wait for a site allotted by the city council or just redevelop Goodison Park itself.

GARY NEVILLE: LIVERPOOL DESERVED IT



“You get what you deserve as a team, don’t you?” he said. “We are where we are because we deserve to be there. And it is the same with Liverpool. We went out at the group stage ourselves a few years back. They haven’t performed well enough in the Champions League this season to get the results, simple as that.”

However, Neville's ill-feelings may run deeper than that. In 'Fifteen minutes that shook the World', Gary Neville was portayed as "rat boy" who despises scousers. The film about the unforgetable Champions League comeback also included cameos from Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher.

Neville also opened up about Manchester United's loss to Besiktas JK.

“It was very disappointing,” he said. “But we just didn’t do enough in the last third. Conceding a goal in the first half set us back a little bit and gave Besiktas something to hang on to. But usually we would expect to score a goal in what was something like 96 or 97 minutes at Old Trafford and we didn’t do that."

sometimes the media baffle me. this is one of them moments.

United to sign Madrid star

Manchester United reported to sign £4m Real Madrid midfielder, Guti in January

Reports in Spain say both United and City are tracking the 33-year-old, which could great experience in both squads.

Guti has currently been ignored by Real Madrid coach Manuel Pellegrini after they had a furious row and since set his sights on moving to the Premier League.

“It’s a difficult situation for both of us,” Guti said, in regards to his relationship with Pellegrini.
Pellegrini has left Guti out the first team since Real Madrid's 4-0 cup defeat by third division Alcorcon in October.

The rift continued when Guti stated in an interview that he likes the odd night out, “I’m a guy who never stops, day and night. I like to enjoy the night with my friends,” he added.

“When I am 60-years-old, I won’t be going to a disco until six in the morning, but I am now,” he said in the interview with Maria Zabay, according to La Gaceta.

If there is anyone who could tame the Spanish international its Sir Alex.

This could be a great acquisition for a player that has tremendous experience and flair which would suit United's style.

let's keep this on topic?



TORRES: RAFA TAKING CLUB FORWARD

Fernando Torres insists there is no better manager than Rafa Benitez to take Liverpool Football Club forward.
Injury meant the 25-year-old was not involved as Liverpool fell out of the Champions League this week but Torres is adamant there will still be plenty to play for this season when he returns to full fitness.

And the Spain international has full confidence in the Benitez project which has yielded our fifth European Cup win and our best title challenge since 1990.

"Benitez has shown that he is the right man to take Liverpool forward," Torres said.

"When the club has needed to be strong it always has been. Now is the time for everybody to stick together from the manager right down to the lowest member of staff because above all else we want to make our wonderful fans happy with our performances and results.

"We must be united to finish as high as possible in the Premier League. I am convinced that we will end up in the top four.

"We also have high hopes for the FA Cup and the Europa League. At this time, this tournament has become a goal for the club.

"Nobody expected to be knocked out of the Champions League because this team has shown itself over recent seasons to be very reliable.

"This is a competition that we won in 2005 and on another occasion [2007] we got to the final. Since I have been with the club we have got to a semi-final and a quarter-final."
