Roy's gonna unleash the dragon today

Roy Hodgson is pondering whether to give Fernando Torres his first start of the season at Eastlands tonight.



Liverpool's No.9 gave an encouraging performance during his 45-minute outing in Thursday's 1-0 win over Trabzonspor at Anfield, and the boss admits he was impressed by his fitness.

"I thought Fernando looked very good against Trabzonspor and he will be all the better for the 45 minutes," the boss told Liverpoolfc.tv. "He almost scored with his first touch of the ball and we are really pleased that Fernando is back. We know what he can produce and he didn't look like he was short of fitness."

OH OF COURSE I'M WORKING WHILE LIVERPOOL IS PLAYING, SHOCKER. SOMEONE PLZ UPDATE ME WITH THE MATCH HIGHLIGHTS, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASEEE. OH, I BETTER BE SEEING LOTS OF THESE TODAY FROM LIVERPOOL:

Forlan

Forlan+Pele, Suarez+Delfina = Uruguay NT gifspam!

It's official - "The King" Pele welcomes Forlan onto football Olympus, says Forlan is the best player in the World. :) Also praises Spain NT.

In English:
"The legendary Brazilian footballer 'Pelé', praised the Uruguayan player Diego Forlan and the Spanish NT, admitting that he would have liked to play in that team."

Forlan responded: "I am very proud that such a great player as Pele said that. It's incredible. And I'm very grateful".
About Super Cup against Inter Milan on Aug. 27th, he said that "it will be a big game" and that Atletico is ready for it, being strengthened with quality players, and that he himself is in great shape.
It also might deside who gets this year's Balon D'Ore - Forlan or Sneider, as them and Iniesta are currently the main contenders for it. Whew, talk about pressure!
But Forlan says the only thing which matters is to win it for his team. :)

Also, this weekend proud papa Luis Suarez showed off his 2-weeks old daughter Delfina, all decked in Ajax kit!
And you can tell he's totally smitten with her!


There's also a video on the AjaxLife site, but it won't embed.
And in case it won't play for some, a bunch of screen caps of smitten Suarez: Collapse )

So if that's not a reason for a big-ass gifspam, I don't know what is!
Plus we got our paws on some amazing extra footage from WC, and been making them into gifs for a while, so now we can share. :)

I ranted once that it was raining in Uru-SK game, and Forlan took his shirt off and it wasn't shown? Guess what - it WAS, just not to everyone!
And look what they were hiding from us!


More of that under the cut, plus Suarez kissing his wife after France game, plus more Sk celebrations, arrival of Uruguayan boys in suits etc.:
