  1. Capital offences

    by , 9th April 2013 at 05:56 AM
    Southend goalkeeper Paul Smith did no favours for himself or his club with his faux pas at Wembley on Sunday prior to the JPT Final..

    As the two teams jogged out of the tunnel the custodian spotted a cameraman, just doing his job, filming the teams coming out.

    Mr Smith took it upon himself to issue a `one finger` salute in the direction of the lens. Whether or not it was to the cameraman, probably, or to a wider audience, only Mr Smith will know.

    Never the less it was tasteless and I`m sure when gesture is brought to the attention of Mr Brown, manager, Mr Smith, goalkeeper will feel like he should, ashamed.

    When Bobby Zamora needlessly and foolishly tried his Eric Cantona, though to be fair to Eric his infamous kung-fu assault was ...

    Lionel Messi breaks the all-time goal record for Barcelona

    Lionel Messi hit a hat-trick in the 5-3 win over Granada in La Liga this evening, beating the Barcelona club record of 232 set by Cesar Rodriguez from 1939-1955.

    This is the 24-year old Messi's 2nd goal of the game and 233rd goal for Barcelona:



    Messi has achieved the record in 314 appearances (compared to 354 for Cesar) underlining his status as the finest current player of football, playing in what is arguably the best team ever.

  4. Chelsea sack Di Matteo - utterly ridiculous!

    by , 21st November 2012 at 01:58 PM (11v11 blog)
    The only sensible reaction to Chelsea’s sacking of Roberto Di Matteo today is - utterly ridiculous.

    Why?

    Because he guided the Blues to Champions League triumph just six months ago and winning Europe’s premier club competition had been the Holy Grail for Roman Abramovich since the Russian billionaire took over as Chelsea owner in 2003.

    Because in less than ten months in charge, he also led Chelsea to only their seventh ever FA Cup Final success.

    Utterly ridiculous, because Di Matteo was in charge for just 23 Premier League games for Chelsea. Only David Webb and Guus Hiddink managed fewer (13 each).

    Because under Abramovich, even before today’s dismissal, Chelsea have shelled out £37 million in compensation to sacked managers ...
