Happy Birthday

 Pele is 70 years old today.

"I was born for soccer, just as Beethoven was born for music." Arrogant, pompous words. Except when they are spoken by Edson Arantes do Nascimento, the Brazilian genius known throughout the football world as Pele.
A veteran of four World Cups, scorer of 1,283 first-class goals - 12 of them in World Cup final tournaments - a member of those magical Brazilian squads that won soccer's greatest prize in 1958, 1962 and 1970.

wazza speaks about his roo-turn

Wayne Rooney has vowed to win back the trust of Manchester United's fans after agreeing a new five-year contract only two days after stating unequivocally that he wanted to leave Old Trafford because he thought they were a club in decline.

Rooney has become the best-paid player in the club's history by agreeing to a deal that doubles his wages to around £180,000 a week, after Sir Alex Ferguson talked him out of his apparent desire to join Manchester City. United's owners, the Glazers, became personally involved, agreeing to meet the player's financial requirements and assuring him during a series of transatlantic telephone calls that the club were still capable of competing for the more expensive players in the transfer market.

Always problems for Mr Mutu

Hey everyone Adrian Mutu (former Chelsea player and now at Fiorentina but not playing because of drug problems) last night hit a waiter many times in a club.

He was very violent and hit his nose and beat him.

Now the waiter is in hospital; apparently the problem was that Mutu and his friends ordered at 5 AM *another* bottle but DIDN'T pay for it and the waiter complained.

Very hard times for Fiorentina and for Mutu himself!!!

Real Madrid - News Roundup!

Mourinho: "I would grade Real Madrid's performance with a 10"

"We’ve been playing well for several games now, doing a good job overall and pressurising our opponents as a whole team"
Realmadrid.com / Translation by Michael J. O'Donnell

Jose Mourinho did not hide his satisfaction for the impressive victory Real Madrid earned tonight at the Bernabeu.
"We’ve been playing well for several games now, doing a good job overall and pressurising our opponents as a whole team. Individual quality starts to shine through sooner when a team works well collectively. We are currently having a very positive run and we have to continue working without much time to rest or enjoy it. Happy people nevertheless forget about exhaustion and problems..."

"Fans are having fun and so is the team, especially because it has to run around less now. I obviously like this, but we shouldn’t think this is how it’s going to be in every game. We will win some games with few goals, and even draw and lose some. We want to have a mentality that doesn’t allow for two consecutive defeats. We played a very serious game in Malaga and we did so again against Milan and also tonight. That’s the mentality I want my team to have and I am very happy about it."

"We are growing slowly but steadily. Fans may feel euphoric, but we must remain calm. Great coaches and great players can’t allow themselves to feel euphoria for so little. We want to achieve things that are much more important than this."

"We have to start working on our game against Murcia as of now. Ozil, Carvalho and Xabi Alonso will have a three-day holiday. The rest will be called-up for the match. Benzema will be a starter, and so will Ronaldo. It is a very important game to me. If last year’s situation repeats itself, I will cross those who play off my list because they will be dead to me."
