NESV key man Joe Januszewski on his 20-year Liverpool FC love affair 


LIKE any starry-eyed supporter, Joe Januszewski revelled in the chance to immerse himself in Liverpool’s glorious past on a visit to Anfield this weekend.

Walking around the club’s museum, gazing at pictures of Dalglish and Rush, Barnes and Beardsley, Gerrard and Fowler, Januszewski was in his element and lapped up all he could from those heady, trophy-winning eras.

Thanks to Januszewski, though, the future could yet be as a fruitful as those golden years because he, in a small but not insignificant part, is the reason John W Henry and Tom Werner find themselves as cast in the role of Liverpool’s new owners.

Here’s why. Januszewski might hold the title of Senior Vice-President, Corporate Sales & Fenway Enterprises at the Boston Red Sox but his office wall in Fenway Park is a shrine to all things Liverpool FC.

it's as important to know how to arrive to a place than to know how to leave it.

Yesterday Villa visited a late night show on TV, Buenafuente, I think it could be like the spanish version of Jimmy Fallon.

·Villa becomes a midget (yes please, that's exactly what we lack in this team)
·On modesty and being a nice guy.
·Being ready and not having pre-season, etc.
·He misses Valencia.
·What his bb girl thought about him joining barça and her crush.
·Ibra's trash talking.
·Messi is the best in the world.
·Not scoring enough.
·He likes Barcelona as a city.
·The miners in Chile.
·His singing abilities.
·The Principe de Asturias awards.

Christian Purslow stands down at Liverpool as John Henry starts rebuilding work

Christian Purslow has left Liverpool as they attempt to rebuild at Anfield.

A club statement read: 'Liverpool FC confirms that following the successful sale of the club, Christian Purslow has decided to stand down from his temporary position as managing director. Christian will remain as a non-executive director and will act as a special adviser to the new owners.'

'New England Sports Ventures Chairman Tom Werner said: 'We are delighted Christian has accepted our offer to help us and the Club, given his great experience and love for Liverpool FC. We will now begin a global search process for a Chief Executive Officer.'

Purslow said : 'I came to LFC to lead the Club through a sale process to get the best overall deal including, vitally, the removal of the debt. I am immensely proud of what we have all achieved. I now look forward to assisting the Owners in any way I can at this exciting time as they drive the Club forward to a bright future.'


I wish Woy would take this approach for the manager position as well, but that certainly won't happen

Valdés out of Copenhagen match

BARCELONA (AFP) - Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has been ruled out of his side's Champions League group stage match at home to FC Copenhagen on Wednesday due to fever.

"Victor Valdes will not be able to defend the Barcelona goal tonight due to the vomiting and fever he has suffered over the last few hours," the Catalan club announced on their website on Wednesday afternoon.

Valdes, Spain's third-choice goalkeeper, will be replaced by Barcelona's reserve keeper Jose Manuel Pinto, with reserve team goalkeeper Ruben Mino called into the squad as back-up.

Pinto has never played for Barcelona in the Champions League and is yet to make a competitive appearance this season.

Copenhagen are top of Champions League Group D and lead Barcelona, the 2009 champions, by two points after two matches.

What do Man United and Bursaspor have in common?

Besides the fact that they'll be dueling it out tonight, they both appreciate some Turkish hospitality. :) 

I thought this was a cute commercial and might cheer up some folk, so I decided to post it. Ignore Rooney Look out for Berba, who I think is quite the movie star in this one. Hope you guys enjoy it!
P.S. I actually flew with this plane this summer. I have yet to see the Barça one, but I've had the grand opportunity of staring at a giant picture of Sir Alex Ferguson's face on a plane... in Turkey.

Jets to host Beckham's LA Galaxy
October 20, 2010
- 10:44AM

The Newcastle Jets have pulled off a major coup, luring football superstar David Beckham and his LA Galaxy team to the Hunter for a one-off friendly match next month.

The Jets will host the Galaxy, who also feature American World Cup hero Landon Donovan, at EnergyAustralia Stadium on November 27 at 7.30pm.

The match is expected to attract 23,000 fans and bring more than $1 million to the economy.

NSW Premier Kristina Keneally on Wednesday joined the Minister for the Hunter and MP for Newcastle Jodi McKay, Jets chairman Ken Edwards and A-League boss Lyall Gorman to announce details of the exhibition game.

"NSW is Australia's premier state for major global events and we're particularly keen to promote regional NSW destinations, so this is a great coup for the Hunter and the State," Ms Keneally said.

"Australia is a sport-loving nation and our passion for football has grown in recent years with the success of our Socceroos on the world stage.

"NSW has recently hosted the successful Sydney International FIFA Fan Fest, Australia versus Paraguay match and the football-themed Breakfast on the Bridge.

"We want to show the world we are ready to host the World Cup in 2022 and securing major events such as this exclusive match for NSW puts us in a strong position during the bid process."

Rooney speaks!

Wayne Rooney has revealed his reasons behind him wanting to leave Manchester United insisting it is not down to money but ambition.

United manager Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed on Tuesday that Rooney wanted to leave the club, and admitted his disappointment and disbelief. Ferguson insisted he did not know the reasons behind Rooney's decision to shun a new contract at Old Trafford and instead look for a move away.

But now Rooney - who has just 18-months left on his current deal, has released a statement outlining his decision to seek a move away from United. Rooney has been quick to deny that any moves away from the club would be financially motivated, insisting that the club's lack of investment in their squad is the primary factor.

"I met with David Gill [United chief executive] last week and he did not give me any of the assurances I was seeking about the future squad," Rooney confirms. "I then told him that I would not be signing a new contract."

Rooney also admitted he was shocked by Ferguson's comments on Tuesday, adding: "I was interested to hear what Sir Alex had to say yesterday and surprised by some of it. It is absolutely true, as he said, that my agent and I have had a number of meetings with the club about a new contract. During those meetings in August I asked for assurances about the continued ability of the club to attract the top players in the world.

"I have never had anything but complete respect for MUFC. How could I not have done given its fantastic history and especially the last six years in which I have been lucky to play a part? For me its all about winning trophies - as the club has always done under Sir Alex. Because of that I think the questions I was asking were justified."

The England star insisted that he would always 'owe' something to Ferguson. "Despite recent difficulties, I know I will always owe Sir Alex Ferguson a huge debt. He is a great manager and mentor who has helped and supported me from the day he signed me from Everton when I was only 18," he said. "For Manchester United's sake I wish he could go on forever because he's a one off and a genius."

maybe nobody cares..

I found this article on a metal-music fanzine... About Napoli-Liverpool

and I know nobody cares, but  the idea of a rockstar taking the team to Italy makes me laugh :)


Iron Maiden frontman-turned-pilot to fly Liverpool FC to Italy clash

Liverpool FC millionaire footballers are used to travelling in style for their European adventures but their latest flight will be a truly rock'n'roll experience.

Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson, who is best known for his earth shaking performances on the stage, ferried the Reds stars to Naples for their Europa League clash tonight (THURS).

But the 52-year-old rock star is no stranger to the cockpit - he's been flying commercial airlines for more than a decade.

On taking the Reds into 'The Final Frontier' aboard his Boeing 757, Captain Bruce said: "We've done a lot of footballers.

"We're one of very few airlines to have the FA cup on board. We flew the trophy back from Cardiff and it had its own seat.

"If people ask me which do I enjoy more, singing or flying, it's difficult to say."

But hardcore Maiden fans shouldn't worry they have lost their heavy metal idol to the skies as he added: "I'm never going to give up singing. That's been my life."

After flying from Iceland to Orlando on Sunday night, the singer was having a well earned rest before he jetted off with the Merseyside club.
