I know this is stupid cuz i have no pic proof but...

I just saw Jonas Gutierrez playing poker at the casino of Bariloche. 
I couldnt take pics cuz they wouldnt let me "bother" him since he was playing with haaaard money, i still waved at him and so did he.
He was saying a lot of jokes and having fun with all the people playing in that table.

I know this sucks since i dont have pic to show but :/  i got very excited when i saw him hehehe (wish it was pipita tho =( )


Steven Gerrard to stay at Liverpool FC

now your turn fernando

STEVEN Gerrard today committed his future to Liverpool FC.

The Reds skipper ended months of speculation as he welcomed the signing of Joe Cole from Chelsea and admitted he cannot wait to play alongside him.

The news will come as a massive boost to Liverpool supporters - the second in 24 hours.

Gerrard said of Cole: "It is a great signing for us. I know Joe well through the England set-up and have seen first hand just how good a player he is.

"He has proved his ability over many years in the Premier League - sometimes against us - so it will be fantastic to play alongside him in a red shirt for Liverpool."

Gerrard, who has been at Anfield since he was eight years old and has never in recent seasons expressed any desire to leave despite the speculation this summer, added: "I've told him what a great club this is and I'm sure Joe's the sort of exciting talent our fans will love to see. I made it clear that I simply needed to concentrate on the World Cup and then have a decent holidaty with my family.

"I wanted the chance to meet Roy Hodgson privately and having done so, I'm very impressed with his plans for the future."


Defender tries to strangle ref in Chile

Paraguayan footballer Jose Pedroso, who grabbed a referee around the throat and tried to choke him during a weekend match in Chile's second division for Rangers has resigned from the club.

Elias Vistoso, president of the second-division club Rangers, said Monday that Pedroso had left the club following the indicent on Saturday in a second-division match between Rangers and Concepcion. Concepcion won 3-0.

"We spoke with him and he has resigned," Vistoso told the daily El Mercurio. "We know the (league) punishment awaiting him will not be small."

The scene involving defender Pedroso and referee Marcelo Miranda was captured on video and has been posted on the website YouTube.

The incident took place shortly after Miranda allowed Concepcion to take a penalty four times, waving off attempts because of various infractions. Concepcion converted the first, missed the next two and finally converted the fourth in the team's victory.

Pedroso later charged at Miranda after the referee showed him a second yellow card for a violent tackle. As Miranda approached to show the card, Pedroso slipped behind him and grabbed the referee around the neck. After releasing him, he chased after Miranda and had to be wrestled to the ground by teammates.

Pedroso was quoted telling the Chilean newspaper La Tercera that he had no regrets.

"I'm not the least bit sorry," he was quoted saying. "Now I'm going to Paraguay."

Pedroso could also have faced civil penalties although Miranda, the referee, did not file charges.

Transfer News

Papastathopoulos heads to Milan

AC Milan have confirmed the signing of defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Genoa.

Papastathopoulos, 22, is said to have cost around €5 million. Milan have also allowed Gianmarco Zigoni, Nnamdi Oduamadi and Rodney Strasser to join Genoa on a co-ownership arrangement as part of the deal.

It is believed Papastathopoulos, who represented Greece at this summer's World Cup, will operate as a right back. He made 50 appearances for Genoa after leaving AEK Athens in 2008.

Meanwhile, around 3,000 Milan supporters protested against owner Silvio Berlusconi on Tuesday as they remain unconvinced by the club's ambition in the transfer market.

A press release from the club's 'Ultras' read: "We perfectly understand the general economic situation and the problems big clubs are having in investing and managing budgets, but you can still make big signings without spending ridiculous figures.

"We will continue our protest against those who no longer show love for our Milan and are completely and exclusively involved in extra-football activities. For us, nothing has changed in our stance towards Berlusconi. He continues to be an unjustified absentee."
