Liverpool fans attacked in Naples

THREE Reds fans were stabbed and three more were injured as trouble flared ahead of Liverpool FC’s clash with Napoli. A group of men aged 27, 44 and 53 were attacked at knifepoint in the old part of the city last night after supporters were met with a hostile reception whipped up by the Italian press.

The 27-year-old and 53-year-old were today in hospital but their condition was not thought to be life-threatening. In a second incident, a woman and two men were targeted, but not seriously hurt.

The attacks came after an article printed in the newspaper Il Mattino Napoli branded Liverpool fans as hooligans. A report yesterday had the headline: “Naples, the arrival of Liverpool and hooligans. Police: Stop sales of alcohol.” The report read: “Naples will host Liverpool in tomorrow night’s Europa League, and the city expects around 1,000 hooligans from one of the most violent fringes of English football supporters. In a red letter day for security in the city, extraordinary security measures are to be put in place. No beer, alcohol or other spirits will be on sale in bars and shops in the run-up to the game.”

A foreign office spokesperson said: “We can confirm the hospitalisation of two British nationals in Naples, Italy, on October 20. We are providing consular assistance.” Merseyside police’s contingent commander Chief Superintendent Dave Lewis, in the historic city as a liaison officer, said the attack was thought to be a random incident.

But online fans reported gangs of up to 30 Italians, some on scooters, targeting Reds supporters. Others gave accounts of Italian police escorts for fans to their hotels. Reports from local police also suggested Italian authorities had dealt with two incidents in which bottles were launched at Liverpool fans.

"We are still gathering information with regards to yesterday's incidents," a Naples police spokesperson said. "Four people of the same family, a father, a mother and their two sons, were attacked last night and needed medical attention. Due to the aggression, three Naples citizens were arrested."

A separate incident where a gang of youths armed with knifes approached English supporters in the city has also been reported. The ANSA and Apcom news agencies say that the overnight clashes in downtown Naples involved thrown rocks and led to three arrests, and also injuries to four or five Italian fans, including a restaurant owner.

Italian police will be on high alert at Napoli's San Paolo stadium later. Youths damaged the goals and the pitch when breaking into the ground over the weekend.

Apparently a group of British journalists and photographers were "intimidated by a gang of Ultras" last night too. Lots of them are reporting that the local paper in Napoli has listed the places that UK police have said are 'safe' for liverpool fans D:

Oh Denilson.

I love your boyish charms, but I think you just need to calm down. You will get your chance to play for Brazil's National Team someday, it will happen when it happens. Menezes will call you (I hope). -.-

Since assuming the Brazil reins in July, Mano Menezes has focused heavily on the Premier League’s menu when selecting central midfielders. Indeed, Liverpool’s Lucas and Ramires of Chelsea have started each of the 48-year-old’s three games in charge, while Tottenham Hotspur new boy Sandro has also found room in the squad. Manchester United's Anderson, who has recently recovered from injury, will also feel confident of earning an opportunity, particularly after a string of appearances under previous coach Dunga prior to the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™.

But the list of England-based midfield candidates does not end there, with Arsenal’s Denilson also keen to throw his hat in the ring. In spite of the fierce competition for places at the Emirates, the 22-year-old has been a regular for the Gunners since arriving in north London back in 2006, and continues to grow in stature under the watchful gaze of Arsene Wenger.

“Wow, I’ve learned so much on and off the pitch,” Denilson, a Sao Paulo youth product, told FIFA.com when asked about the most valuable lesson picked up over the past four years. “I’ve grown up so much here that I can’t single out just one thing.”

Although Barcelona are currently the team most cited by football purists as an example to follow, thanks to their technically adept, free-flowing style and senior squad packed with youth-team graduates, Wenger’s Arsenal have been blooding young hopefuls from across the globe and playing a sparkling brand of football for at least a decade.

Denilson showed up on the radar of the Gunners’ scouting network after earning the captaincy at various levels of Brazil’s youth set-up, including the squad that finished second at the FIFA U-17 World Cup Peru 2005. Signed in August 2006 at the tender age of 18, and finding himself far from home and separated from his family, the teenager greatly appreciated Wenger’s nurturing and support.

“He’s helped me a lot, he’s a wonderful coach,” said Denilson of the Frenchman. “I owe this club a lot, especially for the chance to have worked with him. I feel very relaxed with him,” added the player, whose strengths include shooting from distance and accurate distribution, whether simply keeping possession or launching attacks with clever through-balls.

The latter skill was no doubt honed by the Arsenal manager’s emphasis on improving his emerging stars' fundamental attributes, and a determination to train with the ball wherever possible. “It’s not often you get a coach like him,” said Denilson.

“Whether you’re one of the more experienced players or one of the lads coming through, everybody is treated the same. That approach is better for the morale in the squad. The exercises we do on the basics of the game are also noteworthy in that we always work with the ball, even when doing fitness work. It’s a good thing and helps us gain the confidence we need to play nice football.”

Arsenal last trophy was the FA Cup in 2005, and they are eager to turn expansive football into results against the best teams in England and the UEFA Champions League. “Of course you’re always going to lose games, but we have to cut down those losses and stop giving away points stupidly, which has happened in recent seasons," said Denilson.

"We’ve got the quality and we’ve got a lot of responsibility too. Chelsea and Manchester United have that as well, but they’re different as they’ve also got experience. That said, I think we’re much more mature going into this season.”

Moreover, Arsenal victories over the likes of the Blues or the Red Devils would no doubt boost Denilson’s chances of breaking back into A Seleção. “Mano is there to see what’s best for the team. I hope I can get back involved, because it’s been a long time,” said the player who in 2006 was called up to the senior squad for a friendly against Switzerland, though he remained an unused substitute.

Denilson also agrees with Wenger's assessment that his talent is "underestimated". “He's got a point there," said the Paulista. "I think I’ve already proven myself enough to get a chance [with Brazil].

"The thing is, a lot of players have the same dream, such as the lads who are here in England and who are very good. Even so, I believe that it can happen for me too if I can put in consistently good performances and really show what I can do.”



Clarification from FC Barfalona

FC Barcelona wish to make it known that none of these interviews are attributable to the players therein cited and also to explain to our supporters throughout the world that the information and declarations made in these articles are totally and absolutely false.

Andy Cole: ‘Stretford was my agent and he’s with Rooney for the cash’

Wayne Rooney's agent Paul Stretford is a key factor in what's going on with Manchester United's best player at the moment. When Sir Alex Ferguson made reference to players who have agents living in their pockets, it was aimed at Stretford.And I know better than anyone what Stretford is like because he was my agent.

What does the inside of Cesc's closet look like??

Spend a day with Cesc!! The whole episode will air tomorrow, Friday at 1930 CET.

OMG Seriously. I love him.
oh my gol

Still same old Franchise FC?

Are MK Dons still beyond the pale?
The Football League's taboo club remain an oddity and a glitch but is opposition to them beginning to wither after six years?

Well, you asked for it. And here it is. Last week this website carried an interview with Dietmar Hamann, the former German international, who talked about his love of Liverpool, his own assumed Englishness and his hopes for the future. These hopes are, as it turns out, bound up with the progress of his current employers, MK Dons, for whom he is in his first season as player-coach.

It’s been 214 days, 5,136 hours, 308,160 minutes or 18,489,600 seconds since I left England and in all honesty diary, I can’t take it. I am trying so hard to make this work but there is nothing but a deep chasm in my heart that is forever Liverpool. I am reading up on Eternal Return and the idea makes my heart heavy with sadness. The cyclic revolution of the universe, with its limited state coinciding with the steady marching on of time means that I will have to endure this depression over and over and over again.

As Nietzsche states, “Now, however long a time may pass, according to the eternal laws governing the combinations of this eternal play of repetition, all configurations which have previously existed on this earth must yet meet, attract, repulse, kiss, and corrupt each other again...”

I cannot cope with this.

It may look, to the passive, unassuming viewer on my life that I am happy. You may look at pictures of me
hugging and cherishing my current teammates and appearing happy and at one with my family on the streets of Madrid. But only you dear diary, know my inner torment. It simply cannot be endured. But yet it must be. Facades must be maintained, and true feelings must be repressed, and instead I must content myself with looking at pictures of my beloved and our team on Daylife and GettyImages and wishing, praying, hoping that I was still there.
