Birthday shoutouts to Karim Benzema.

Real Madrid are really on top of their birthday celebrations, cause Karim has already received his felicidades for turning 22. So, happy birthday to Karim. He's certainly gotten back into the game and it seems he's happier than ever at RM. Felicidades indeed Karim. Hope to see him today. Score one for your birthday babe and get down with your celebration.
Post your favorite or just outright spam your Benzema pics. You know you love him. I personally cannot resist Algerian Frenchmen.

here is a post about managers

something bad:
Also Friday, gunmen killed Pedro Picasso, assistant football coach of Mexico first-division team Indios, in the border city Ciudad Juarez, said Jacinto Segura, a spokesman for the local prosecutor's office.
...
The Indios brought good news seven months ago to the troubled city when they reached the semifinals of Mexico's first-division playoffs before losing to Pachuca.
Picasso, 34, coached Indios de Ciudad Juarez youth teams since 2005.
"The Indios family is at a loss to express its outrage," the club said in a statement. "He was a good, decent man. Pedro Picasso Garcia was snatched away by violence in the most vile way only known to cowards."

something good:


FOOTBALL is the beautiful game. And for football fans in China’s Henan province, aesthetically pleasing factors apply not only to the way their main club team plays but also to the person in charge – Yang Nan.

MARK HUGHES IS SACKED.



Cheerio and good luck on being the total idiot that you are :)





Manchester City have sacked Hughes and have replaced him with Roberto Mancini , who was at the game today.



The Blues manager did not carry out his normal post-match media duties after this afternoon's 4-3 victory over Sunderland.

A formal statement will be released at 7.30pm which should confirm Hughes, who has lost just two games this season, has been axed. Tonight's development comes despite Hughes' team suffering only two defeats this season.  

But it was the second - a three-goal hammering by Tottenham on Wednesday - which seems to have triggered an immediate response from owner Sheikh Mansour and chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak.   That abject display has apparently convinced City's wealthy Abu Dhabi backers that Hughes could not deliver the Champions League place which was demanded. 


Oh Well.
At least they didn't get Potato.

barcelona; abi's hips don't lie

Som un. I n'hem guanyat sis.

After I finished the crying, the jumping, the dancing, and the screaming, I was stalking Google News to find articles to consolidate my happiness in journalism. I found this article on the Telegraph, and..well...it's beautiful and a guaranteed tear-jerker for any Cule. We should analyse THIS as literature in English class, not bloody Lord of the Flies.

 

Pep Guardiola's Barcelona have made the game beautiful again

Pep Guardiola's Barcelona have re-written the rules on modern football, proving that the relentless pursuit of trophies need not come at the expense of the beautiful game.

Pep Guardiola's Barcelona have made the game beautiful again
The age of the artisan is at an end. Twelve months ago, the contribution of the first decade of the 21st century to football history extended no further than the two words which defined a stifling, cynical era: 'Makelele role'. Then came Barcelona, class of 2009, and nothing was quite the same again. A kinder posterity awaits.   Collapse )
