Paulo Bento has made some surprise call-ups in his first squad as new Portugal coach. Joao Pereira, Rui Patricio, Carlos Martins, Paulo Machado and Helder Postiga are five new faces in the group. (I wouldn't say Postiga is a new face in the group though)

Now and then I get insecure from all the pain, I'm so ashamed.

Absolutely terrific Didi interview in The Guardian today:

Didier Drogba: 'Having a stadium named after me is historic'
The Chelsea striker enjoys an emotional reunion with his first club – and Arsenal may rue what might have been

He is such a ledge. :)))))) I genuinely believe that when he's on form, he's the best forward in the world even better than Crouchie :p Not gonna lie, he was pretty pants against City last week, so I hope he bounces back & I can only hope that his wonderful scoring record against Arsenal continues tomorrow. Since the premier league started, Henry is top scorer in this fixture, with 8 goals, and Didi is on seven, one behind him (tied with Ian Wright). So I want him to bag at least 2 tomorrow to overtake Henry. :))))) Also-- whisper it-- but I have to say, I'm impressed with the lack of hitting the deck this season, because he's best when he's on his feet; strong, imposing, damn near impossible to play. So he best keep that up!! And lastly, I know he can be rather irksome sometimes on the football pitch (smh at that spat he had with Lampard on the last day of the season in May when he wanted to take the penalty), but off the pitch, he is amazing. So fucking proud to have him on my team. :)))))

Anyway, now that that bit's over, your predictions for the game tomorrow?

Poll #1626624 Chelsea-Arsenal outcome


Chelsea win
Arsenal win
I'm predicting an Arsenal win. Because I'm a pessimistic twat like that. But yeah, Chelsea, here's your chance to prove me wrong, girlfriend!!!

Sívori appreciation post

Enrique Omar Sívori

Omar Sívori was an Argentinian striker that was born the 2nd of October in San Nicolás, Argentina. He gave his first steps in River Plate, where he played 63 games and scored 29 goals, alongside idols Ángel Labruna and Félix Loustau. With River, he won 54/55, 55/56 and 56/57 Primera División titles.

During the 1957/1958 season, Renato Cesarini spotted him and arranged his move to Juventus, for an at that time record fee, £91,000. At the same time, two other Argentines were transfered to Italy (Antonio Angelillo to Inter and Humberto Maschio to Bologna), and the three of them received the nickname of "Trio of Death".

In Juventus, Sívori scored 167 goals in 253 appearances, amongst which was the goal for the 1-0 win over Real Madrid, making Juventus the first italian team to ever win at Santiago Bernabéu. He remains the 4th goalscorer in Juventus' history, and also holds the record for most Juventus goals in a single game: he scored 6 in a 9-1 win against Inter.

The titles he won with Juve were 57/58, 59/60 and 60/61 Serie A titles, and 58/59 and 59/60 Coppa Italia. In 1961 he was named European Footballer of the Year.

In 1965, he was transfered to Napoli, where he scored 12 goals in 63 games.

Playing for Argentina's National Team, he played 18 matches and scored 9 goals. He won the Copa América in 1957 (including 8-2 victory against Colombia and 3-0 win against Brazil). After his move to Italy, however, he was forbidden by the Argentinian government from representing the National squad, but as he had Italian ancestry, he started playing for the azzurri team, for which he played 9 games and scored 8 times.

Omar passed away on February 17th in 2005, when he was 69 years old.



ASkars is a real crazy fanboy of Hammarby, a Swedish football club. Today he was at the match they were playing and he got kinda... excited? lol

In honour of this crazy and sexy swede fanboying over his team, this is declared a party post.

LA Galaxy vs. Real Madrid PHOTOS

 So I know the Galaxy/RM game was almost two months ago, but I'm fb friends with Omar Gonzalez and I just noticed that a photographer tagged him in a bunch of pictures. They're really great shots of both teams--I've included the best ones here and the album is public, so I've linked to that at the bottom as well so you guys can see all of the pictures :)
