Nine Point Penalty for the Reds???

If they don't find an owner or repay their debt by 6th October, then YES.

DDD:

But if they go under bank ownership, they can avoid it.

"Hicks and Gillett still owe their ‘acquisition debt’ – currently £282.4m – which they used to buy Liverpool in 2007 as part of the company they created called Kop Football.

But that company exists independently from profit-making Liverpool Football Club and Athletics Grounds Limited, whose accounts are sent to the Premier League."


....FFS.

Xavi and Iniesta "interview" each other, it's awkward and lolzy at the same time.

‘Humphrey Bogart’ or ‘Sweet Iniesta’. One of them will receive the Golden Ball as the best player on 2010.



Barely 170 centimeters, they don't look really bulky, they are not particularly fast and much less explosive, they don't have an innate goal instinct and they don't stand out for their ruthless hits. But despite all these drawbacks, they are the strongests candidates to win next year's Golden Ball and the envy of all clubs in the world because they are the epitome of attractive and spectacular football led by Barcelona. They are defined as the 'gamers', the most admired players in the world and to top it they are nice and likeable. They are Xavi and Iniesta, or Iniesta and Xavi, because in this case the order of factors does not alter the product, as Mourinho would say, the 'update'. SPORT asked them to participate in a debate before leaving for Argentina to play a friendly against Leo Messi and both accepted the challenge under one condition: to talk about football and only football.

So there was this little testimonial yesterday....

Jamie Carragher fulfils boyhood dream of scoring for Everton against Liverpool in Anfield testimonial

Defender on target at both ends in star-studded derby...




Jamie Carragher’s testimonial at Anfield ended in a 4-1 victory for Liverpool and saw the veteran fulfil a lifetime ambition and score for his boyhood club Everton, with an own goal penalty.

The Reds boasted a side that included former stars Jason McAteer, Luis Garcia, Emile Heskey and somewhat controversially, Manchester United striker Michael Owen for the veteran's big day. England captain Steven Gerrard also made a brief appearance for the first 10 minutes after being given special dispensation from Fabio Capello to take part.

Happy Maradona and Argentina NT gifspam

What? I'm feeling nostalgic, and also excited for the Argentina-Spain friendly on Tuesday.

I also got some extra WC footage with many happy moments of Maradona and Argentinian players. Looks like we won't see him like this again (but never say never!), so let's just keep it in memory...

UPDATE
FOr those for whom tinypic doesn't work - they are all here in .zip archive, 27MB:

John Carew and Erik Huseklepp's birthday-cake




 


Both John Carew (31) and Erik Huseklepp (26) celebrates birthday Sunday and got an unusual surprise when they arrived at the player hotel for lunch.

The staff at Bristol had in fact made a birthday cake shaped like a nude female torso.

- Happy Birthday John and Erik. I think the chefs in the hotel Bristol has been good, but we wonder who in the kitchen has been the model for this cake? writes team-mate Morten Gamst Pedersen on his blog.

Huseklepp was pleased, but somewhat embarrassed by surprise.

- It was nice to it. And it was very good, "he laughs to TV 2 Sport.

- Other stuff from the birthday today that is worth to highlight?

- No, really has not. The cake was the highlight, grinning Huseklepp

Arsenal news



Schwarzer fuming over failed move

Mark Schwarzer is still seething over Fulham's decision to block his dream move to English Premier League heavyweight Arsenal.

The long-time Socceroos goalkeeper put a testing week behind him by pulling off two brilliant saves in Australia's 0-0 draw in Friday's friendly against Switzerland in St Gallen.

He found it hard not to bite at questions regarding Craven Cottage boss Mark Hughes' refusal to let him switch to the Gunners.

Hard graft the key to Walcott improvement

Extra work on the training pitch and extra hours in the gym are the twin pillars of Theo Walcott's improvement this season.

The England international has made a flying start to the campaign with four goals in his first two starts - including a hat-trick against Blackpool at Emirates Stadium last week. The 21-year-old has created countless other openings with his direct running and more considered crossing.

(Robert) Van Persie plan backfires to Spurs advantage

Arjen Robben made it no secret he reckons Robin Van Persie will be quite upset to face his friend and compatriot Rafael Van Der Vaart in the North London derby. Robben added that signing Van Der Vaart makes Tottenham as strong as Arsenal, calling him the best.

“With Rafa on board, Spurs really do have one of the very best midfield players in the Premier League, maybe even the best.
