Gooner scarf

But then his heel, his heel, his heel...

ACHILLES by Nobel Laureate Carol Ann Duffy

Myth's river - where his mother dipped him, fished him, a slippery golden boy flowed on, his name on its lips.

Without him, it was prophesied, they would not take Troy.

Women hid him, concealed him in girls' sarongs; days of sweetmeats, spices, silver songs...

But when Odysseus came, with an athlete's build, a sword and a shield, he followed him to the battlefield, the crowd's roar,

And it was sport, not war, his charmed foot on the ball...

But then his heel, his heel, his heel...


Ramblings of a long time Man Utd fan on the Beckham saga:

As much as I hate to admit it, I was glad to see him return to Old Trafford. He's like that ex-boyfriend you loved a lot when you were seeing him, so you accepted all his off-field drama but then he goes and finds a hotter girlfriend (*cough*Madrid*cough*) So, in anger, you "accidentally" throw/kick a boot at his gorgeous face and he runs away hurt (and comes back in stitches). That signals the end of your relationship, and you tell him to fuck off to Madrid (while you scream "Why have you forsaken me?!" to his picture). You move on, get a new boyfriend who also plays on the RW. he scores 40+ goals one season, and wins the Ballon d'Or eventually (top-notch boyfriend if a tad too greasy). But greasebag also falls for that dreaded hoebag, Madrid. (She keeps ruining all your relationships! wtf?!) Your next boyfriend is much less attractive than the previous two, and does not play on the RW (right-wingers are bad luck, you think) but at least he can still score...and pretty well, I might add. The original love of your life has gone through at least two more girlfriends after Madrid. Then, one day, as fate would have it, you are forced to reconnect with your ex-Becksfriend. He looks good, but older, and with less scoring potential (in other words, he's not as hot as when he left). You feel good seeing him (muahahahaha!), and your now-bf shows your ex up by scoring a brace (Yay less-attractive-but-killer-scorer-bf!). Yet you can't help but think back to all the awesome memories you shared with Becks--1999 was definitely the best year you spent together and when you hear that he's gotten in an accident, you can't help but feel bad for your ex even if he did leave you for that filthy-rich infectious hoebag called Madrid in 2003.

My friend, who has always been a diehard Man United fan wrote this after she heard about Becks' injury. It initially had me in stitches and then I felt sad because I remembered how it was going to be his last World Cup. I understand how many of us are upset about the whole thing but I think this article gives a balanced view on the whole matter:

Hitting that cunt shouldn't be against the rules anyway.

No FA action against Gerrard

No punishment for Liverpool skipper

The Football Association will not be taking any action against Liverpool's Steven Gerrard following his clash with Portsmouth's Michael Brown.

Gerrard collided(lmao) with Brown late on when it appeared he used his forearm, which connected with the Pompey man.

To the mancs who are going to complain

Was Brown standing on the front row of the kop for our first goal? That would explain why Stevie actually bothered running in that direction...

If the ref sees something, the FA can't do anything.
