Spitting Spineless Cissy Cesc Fabregas

FABREGAS DENIES SPITTING ALLEGATION

Arsenal club captain Cesc Fabregas has publicly denied an allegation he spat at Hull assistant boss Brian Horton as Tuesday night’s FA Cup quarter-final clash at the Emirates Stadium ended in controversy.

The Gunners’ 2-1 win was overshadowed after the final whistle when Hull boss Phil Brown accused Fabregas of spitting and Arsene Wenger of putting pressure on referee Mike Riley.

Brown was furious with Wenger as he felt the Gunners boss was attempting to get his players booked for time-wasting, and he believed William Gallas was offside when he struck the late winner.

But his most serious accusation came when he insisted Fabregas, who was injured and not playing, spat at Horton, just after Wenger had stormed down the tunnel without shaking hands with his counterpart.

“I was there and I witnessed it, he spat at my assistant manager down the tunnel,” Brown said. “That is their club captain, hopefully he is proud of himself. He spat at his feet.”

Horton is reported to be willing to report Fabregas to the Football Association, while Fabregas released a statement insisting he did not spit.

“I categorically deny that I spat at anybody after the match,” read the statement on Arsenal’s official website. “I have never done this in my whole career on the pitch, so why would I do it when I am not even playing?

“I can understand the frustration of losing a game to a dubious goal, that has happened to me many times in my career as well. But this is not the fault of me or any of the Arsenal players.”

Before the alleged tunnel row, Brown felt Riley “succumbed to local pressure” in the second half after his players were jeered for time-wasting.

“Mr Wenger decides to join in and the result is my goalkeeper getting booked in the second half,” he said. “I can’t say what went on at half time, I have no idea.”

He added: “Arsene Wenger got my goalkeeper booked. You call that good management? He was complaining about time-wasting.”

Hull had taken the lead through Nick Barmby in the 13th minute before the former Tottenham midfielder also had a strike chalked off for offside.

The visitors then soaked up pressure until Robin van Persie struck with 16 minutes remaining, then Gallas appeared fortunate not to be flagged for the winner.

“There is no excuse for the first goal, it was definitely a mistake by us, no excuse about the second goal, it was definitely a mistake by the officials,” Brown said.

“That is why we are out of the FA Cup. Ask Mr Riley how much that will cost to the city. I don’t think he’d understand and I don’t think he’d care.”

Brown stopped short of saying his players had been cheated.

“I can’t use that word but that is the case,” he said.

Wenger, contrary to television replays, felt Gallas was onside.

“It is not offside because the ball was deflected by the fist of the goalkeeper,” the Frenchman said. “(Johan) Djourou first, the goalkeeper after, then a foul on Gallas. We should have got two goals.”

Wenger was upset with Boaz Myhill for time-wasting in the second half.

“If I asked you if their goalkeeper wasted time, I’m confident that you would say yes,” Wenger said.

Wenger was also upset with Brown for talking about incidents in the tunnel.

“It is very disappointing for him to do that. I will just stick to what I said now – I won’t talk about this in public,” Wenger added.

Ashley Cole – What was he doing?

What was he doing?

by Jim White
http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/football/jim-white/article/6189/
It must be an odd household, the Coles. There’s Mrs C, her smiley countenance widely revered, a woman anointed by the popular press as a national treasure. Never mind the fact she was once prosecuted for a vicious attack on a lavatory attendant; her radiance, her beauty, her kindness seemingly exude from every pore. She’s a love.

And then there’s her husband, if not the most reviled man in Britain then running Sir Fred Goodwin a pretty close second. A man who, when he’s not whining about the insulting paucity of a £55,000 a week wage offer, is facing allegations that he showered some sexual conquest in vomit. Perhaps Ashley thinks that by associating with Cheryl some of her good PR might rub off on him, that somehow things will average out and they will come to be seen as a perfectly nice couple. Rather than as they are: the saint and the prat.

If so, his latest indiscretion will hardly have helped his cause. Stroppy, drunk and disorderly, shouting his mouth off on the pavement outside a swanky bar in the early hours, is not a condition most football fans wish to see their leading players in at anytime. But right in the midst of a three-pronged assault on the honours board it is nothing less than a dereliction of duty.

The fact is, however much the runes seem to suggest that Manchester United will hoover up all available silverware, Chelsea are very much in it. Sure, they are behind in the Premier League, but in the FA Cup and Champions League they are as well positioned as Alex Ferguson’s side. Perhaps in Europe they are even better off. Indeed, it is perfectly possible to see the club matching, if not bettering their trio of second places last season. Maybe that was Roman Abramovich’s masterplan all along. This is what happens when you sack a manager halfway through the season, he will doubtless be telling his acolytes, you find yourself right in amongst the trophies at the conclusion of hostilities.

Indeed, such has been Chelsea’s new-found fervour now that Guus Hiddink has taken control, such has been the way the players have been talking up their chances, such has been the ease about the place, the way in which tactics and systems suddenly seem to make sense, that Cole’s aberration is all the more reprehensible. OK, drowning your sorrows at the end of a disappointing term is one thing, but getting bladdered midweek just as things are hotting up is reminiscent of what used to go on at George Graham’s Arsenal or Big Ron’s United, places where Tuesday piss-ups were routine and training largely the opportunity to run off a hangover.

That sort of thing was supposed to be consigned to the past, the days before bleep tests and endless ProZone evaluation. Even Harry Redknapp, a man who hardly behaves like a Presbyterian, recently insisted that these days there is no place for any booze whatsoever in the footballer’s lifestyle. And yet here was Cole, a man who surely must know better, three sheets to the wind and larging it. It must make every Chelsea fan, the very people whose enormous financial commitment keeps the player in Flaming Ferraris, or whatever it is he drinks these days, despair.

Maybe Cheryl could have a word. Either that or she could turn out next week against Juventus. You get the feeling she would be much better received.

Idiot Cashley Cole drunken rant at Police

The vastly over-rated, supreme moron and petulant asshole that is Cashley Cole came forth with a drunken rant at Police in the wee hours yesterday at one of London’s most exclusive, and expensive, restaurant.
What the f*ck was this arrogant nitwit doing, getting sloshed in the early hours when the team – albeit a rubbish one – that lavishes him with insane wealth are – albeit feebly – trying to compete for three trophies?!

Why was this moron shouting at the cops and, more importantly, why didn’t he spend the night in stir for abusing cops, instead of getting off scott free with a minor fine? If the average man on the street – i.e. not a multi millionaire footy star! – was abusing cops like that, the story would be very different!

Premier League – Cole apologises to police for drunken rant
Eurosport – Fri, 06 Mar 2009

Chelsea and England defender Ashley Cole has apologised to the police for a foul-mouthed tirade that led to him being arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct.

However, Cole admits he did not heed their warnings to calm down and regrets not taking their advice. He also made it clear that he had not consumed a vast amount of alcohol.

Cole declared: “I would like to take this opportunity to apologise to the police officers on duty last night for my language.

“I felt I was being harassed by paparazzi and while complaining to the police about this at the scene they did warn me to calm down, a warning that I regrettably did not heed.

“I fully appreciate that whatever frustrations I may have had with others that it was completely inappropriate to vent those in conversations with the police.

“However, I do want to make clear that I swore in frustration at the paparazzi’s behaviour. I would never disrespect police officers in anyway.

“I take very seriously my responsibilities as a professional footballer, this includes keeping my body in the best condition.

“Although I had consumed some alcohol earlier in the evening on a night out with friends it had not been excessive.

“But I accept that the language I used on this occasion was wrong. I regret my actions and how it reflects on myself and Chelsea Football Club.”

The 28-year-old was arrested in Brompton Road, South Kensington, at about 2.15am on Thursday morning after emerging from the Collection nightclub.

Police sources said the officers were already on patrol in the street and were not called to any disorder.

One source denied reports they were following up a complaint from a photographer over an alleged bust-up with Cole.

Cole was taken to a central London police station and issued with an £80 fixed penalty notice for being drunk and disorderly before being released shortly after 5.30am.

Cole is likely to be fined by Chelsea.

The Collection nightclub is a popular haunt on the west London celebrity scene.

Before his arrest last night, Cole had joined Chelsea’s first-team squad and more than 300 charity workers, celebrities and supporters for the second annual Chelsea FC and Armani charity fundraiser.

Cole, who racked up a £1,000 bill at the restaurant with team-mates Terry and Michael Mancienne, was “rude” to police after getting frustrated by waiting paparazzi, Mr Maraj revealed.

The manager said the trio had “behaved well” before someone apparently took a picture of Cole inside the restaurant.

The three players enjoyed a range of drinks, some of which may have been bought for them by other guests, he added.

“People were coming up to them during dinner, men and women. They seemed happy and quite polite – all the players came for a quiet night.”

Revealing how Princes William and Harry were previously regular guests at the bar, Mr Maraj added: “I believe there was a photographer inside who took a picture of Cole.

“He (Cole) was more frustrated than being drunk, because of paparazzi – it must have been something.

“My staff told me he stopped to speak to police as he left. He was apparently complaining about paparazzi. My staff said he was being rude to the police.”

He added that the Chelsea players regularly visited his venue and always behaved well.

Cole ate a Japanese steak costing £50, he added.

Stamford Bridge Blues!

The self-destruction and stupidity at Chelsea for the past while has been really upsetting to us!!
Well by “upsetting”, of course we mean “hilarious”!

A team of over-rated, useless, arrogant, aging mercenaries like Herr Bollock and Diddy Drogba, believing they’re the greatest in the world, now waking up to reality!

And another oligarch, knee-jerk, shooting in the foot, with the sack of bumbling Scolari!

There’s going to be lot of cobwebs accumulating in that trophy cabinet at the Bridge!

Chelsea will win nothing behaving like this

Tue Feb 10

by Jim White

At least there is one area where Chelsea Football Club are ahead of the game.

Currently the average tenure for a manager in English professional football is 15 months. At Stamford Bridge right now, they are running at twice that speed: their latest sacked boss was in charge for less than seven months. It suggests whoever takes over from Luis Felipe Scolari would be wise not to make any plans for a Christmas in London.

There can be no other business that takes such a reckless attitude to its most important executive position than football. How can 15 months be enough time fully to understand a place, to reach accommodation with employees, to set in motion a dynamic and attainable corporate strategy? Yet time and again, managers are sacked, suddenly, gracelessly and without any real cause (Chelsea, at the last time of sacking were involved in the sharp end of three competitions). Scolari had barely enough time to learn the route from his home to the training ground.

Mind you, compared to some he was lucky: Tony Adams was gifted all of 13 league matches by Portsmouth. Just about sufficient to fully introduce himself to his staff.

True, there are those who suggest that, had he been given from now until doomsday, Scolari would never have succeeded as Chelsea manager. Used to working as an international coach, when players arrived fully toned and fit, the suggestion is he was not up to speed with the physical needs of a club side. The talk is of poor training, of a lack of intensity in the work-outs at Cobham, of a disorganised approach to tactics (why oh why did he stubbornly refuse to station anyone on the posts when defending corners?).

Others point to his lack of scouting, of his foolishness in letting Steve Clarke join West Ham, of his sketchy grasp of English. Yet, all of these things are minor foibles when balanced against this inarguable truth: he has won the World Cup. The man may not yet have worked his magic at Chelsea but he did not become a bad manager overnight.

Perhaps what he needed was a bit of time to adjust. He was never going to get that at Chelsea, and the reason for that is Roman Abramovich. This was the owner’s decision all right.

Peter Kenyon may be a comedy villain in most discerning eyes, but he knows enough about English football to appreciate that nobody has won anything chopping and changing their manager twice a season. He wanted Scolari to stay.

Abramovich, however, acts like the fan ringing a phone-in. A draw against Hull, his knee jerks, and off the manager goes. Sure, it’s his train set and sure, his investment has earned him the right to set the points precisely as he wishes. But his capricious impatience is currently routing it towards a giant pile up. The error he made in ridding the club of its greatest manager back in September 2007 will never be resolved by sacking his every successor. When you are in a hole, a point is soon reached when you have to stop digging.

What must frustrate all of those trying to work under the oligarch’s whims at the Bridge is the timing here. What can a new man coming in do? The transfer window shut last week. He will have the same players to work with as Scolari. He will still have Michael Essien in the treatment room. Joe Cole will still be sidelined. Flourent Malouda will still be a disappointment. Petr Cech will still be half the keeper he was a year ago. Carlo Cudicini will still have been let go to Spurs.

And yet, in his first two games in charge, the new man will be expected to manufacture victories against opponents as tricky as Aston Villa and Juventus. Presumably, should he fail, he will be fired.

Still, he knows he will be comforted by a pay-off. It is estimated that the impatience to remove Scolari will cost Abramovich at least £7.5million. This at a club supposed to be learning to live within its means. In other words, sufficient funds to finance the purchase of a decent full-back have been chucked down the drain.

And people say banking is the most feckless business in the world.

Mickey Rourke v Chris Jericho pissing contest!

Mickey Rourke and craziness have never really ever been far apart!

Here’s the latest piece of madness!

‘The Wrestler’ actor Mickey Rourke is apparently getting in the ring with WWE “fighter” Chris Jericho to wrestle for real this time! The Golden Globe winner is scheduled to take on Jericho at “Wrestlemania 25” in Houston’s Reliant Stadium on April 5, the Associated Press reports!

This all kicked off from a crazy comment by what seemed like a juiced-up Rourke at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, where he said that he planned to toss Jericho “around the ring like a tossed salad.”

It seemed to be said in good spirits with tongue in cheek.

However, the po-faced, and publicity seeking, Jericho saw it very differently!

Mickey Rourke v Chris Jericho – the kick off (SAG Awards)


When Rourke recently appeared on Larry King Live, a pissed off Chris Jericho confronted him.

“I don’t have respect for you… Be careful what you wish for, Mr. Rourke”, Jericho said.

Rourke just grinned at the remark and answered him back. Rourke said he would take on the arrogant Jericho in boxing ring or a bare knuckle match, but not in the wrestling ring!

“I’m gonna take the high road, brother, and just wish you all the best” he said.

Of course, everybody with a treble digit IQ knows wrestling is not a sport. Just a stylised, stupid, silly pageant played out by steroid-addled body-building fags for Republican rednecks and other morons!

We’d really love to see Mickey and Jericho get it on in a televised street brawl! And we know for sure who’d win!!


Chris Jericho joined the Larry show via satellite. He told Larry he’s seen the movie and liked Mickey’s performance. “I thought that Mickey did a tremendous job and he hit the ball right out of the park. He made no mistakes in his performance as Randy the Ram.”

He added, “The movie represented the minor leagues of wrestling very well. It was a nice representation of what it’s like to be on the way up and what it’s like to be on the way down. It’s not representing what I do in the WWE and who I am, for example, as the best in the world at what I do. I think Mickey’s performance was immaculate, he made no mistakes, but I think he did make a mistake on the red carpet at the SAG awards where he mentioned WrestleMania and called me out because if he got his wish and had a confrontation with me at WrestleMania, I think the ending of the Jericho-Rourke movie would not turn out very well for Mr. Rourke as it did for ‘The Wrestler.'”

Larry King took that to be a challenge and asked Mickey Rourke if he’d wrestle Chris Jericho. Rourke responded, “If it was up to me, no, it’s not my world. I was a professional fighter. Would I box him in a boxing ring or a bare knuckle match, yeah. Wrestling, that’s his world. That’s what this man does.” Jericho said, “Very interesting, Mr. Rourke. You should have thought before your spoke. Be careful what you wish for, it may come true.”

After some more bantering, Jericho went back at Mickey and said “You offended me and that’s the last thing you want to do is disrespect Chris Jericho, believe me. Because you may have respect for me and my world, but I don’t have respect for you. I really don’t.”

Jericho started off compimentary but quickly shifted to the instigator. Rourke said a few times that he’d be at WrestleMania but said he wanted to “take the high road” when Jericho challenged him directly. Larry King seemed to enjoy this potential big money match taking shape right in front of him.



http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0901/27/lkl.01.html

LARRY KING: Chris, have you seen “The Wrestler?”

CHRIS JERICHO, WWE STAR: Yes, I have seen “The Wrestler,” Larry. I thought Mickey did a tremendous job. I thought he hit the ball right out of the park. He did a great job, made no mistakes in his performance as Randy the Ram. …..I think the movie represented the minor leagues of wrestling very well. And, like I said, I think it was a nice representation of what it is like to be on the way up, and also what it’s like to be on the way down of wrestling. It’s not representing what I do in the WWE, and who I am, for example, as the best in the world at what I do. ……Like I said, Mickey’s performance was immaculate. He made no mistakes. But I think he did make a mistake on the red carpet at the SAGE Awards when he mentioned Wrestlemania and he called me out, because if he got his wish and had a confirmation with me at Wrestlemania, I think the ending of the Jericho/Rourke movie would not turn out very well for Mr. Rourke, as it did in “The Wrestler.”

KING: Ha, a challenge. Mickey?

JERICHO: Not really a challenge. I think Mickey kind of talked out of line. It’s not a challenge, I’m just answering. There’s a lot of difference between playing a wrestler in a movie and actually being one in real life. I think Mickey was given some bad advice in saying my name on the red carpet. If you get your wish, Mr. Rourke, you will learn things you never learned playing in playing a wrestler in a movie.

KING: Mr. Rourke?

ROURKE: I think that’s fine. I was visiting his world. He does his thing. He does his thing very well. Perhaps, I did put my foot in my mouth. I got nothing but respect for him. KING: Would you wrestle him?

ROURKE: Would I wrestle him? If it was up to me –

KING: You would?

ROURKE: No. I would — it’s not my world. I was a professional fighter. Would I box him in a boxing ring or a bare knuckle match? Yes. Wrestling, that’s his role. That’s what this man does.

JERICHO: Boxing match, bare knuckle match, interesting, Mr. Rourke. I think you should have thought before you spoke. Be careful what you wish for, Mr. Rourke. It may come true.

ROURKE: Listen, all the best to you at Wrestlemania .

JERICHO: I do respect what you did in the movie, “The Wrestler,” Mickey. Like I said, I think the performance was immaculate. Like I said, I think you offended me. That’s the last thing you want to do is offend Chris Jericho, believe me, because you may have respect for me and respect my world, I don’t have respect for you. I don’t. I really don’t.

ROURKE: Well, I am going to take the high road, brother, and wish you all the best and do your thing.

KING: See, Chris, he’s taken the high road.

JERICHO: You know me, Larry, I’m a very nice guy. We’ve worked together quite a few times in the past. It takes a lot to throw me off kilter, Larry. Next time, think twice, Mickey. Like I said, I’m right here, brother. You want bare knuckle, you want boxing, whatever it is, I’m fine. I’m an entertainer just like you are. But my world is a lot different than yours. You think that you know that, but I don’t think you know it for sure.

ROURKE: I don’t know a whole lot about wrestling. Chris, you’re looking sharp tonight.

KING: Thanks, Chris, go back to see Metallica. JERICHO: I’ll be waiting, Mr. Rourke. I’ll be waiting. ROURKE: Take care, have a good night, son.

Super Super-Bowl Porn


10 seconds of eye-popping pornographic imagery “flashed” across the screens of those watching at home

One way to brighten up a football match!

We actually had this idea years ago. A perfect way to spice up the viewing!

We hope that next season, this will occur during most matches – particularly during the more boring encounters!

No, watching those bouncing cheerleader bunnies is not enough for us! But it ain’t half bad either!

from CNN

Super Bowl fans in Tucson, Arizona, caught a different kind of show during Sunday’s big game.

Just as Cardinals’ superstar Larry Fitzgerald watched himself sprint into the end zone on the stadium’s Jumbotron during Sunday’s Super Bowl, 10 seconds of eye-popping pornographic imagery “flashed” across the screens of those watching at home.

“We are mortified by last evening’s Super Bowl interruption, and deeply apologize to our customers for the inappropriate programming,” Comcast Cable said in a written statement.

“Our initial investigation suggests this was an isolated malicious act,” the statement added.

Comcast, and several local television stations that carried the signal, say they are currently investigating what caused the interruption.

“It appears this material was only viewed by some Comcast customers,” local Tucson television station KVOA-TV said in a written statement.

Television station KVOA added “when the NBC feed of the Super Bowl was transmitted from KVOA to local cable providers and through over-the-air antennas, there was no pornographic material,” KVOA President and General Manager Gary Nielsen said in a separate statement.

Michael Phelps – Much Ado About Nothing At All

Rather strangely, Phelps has come out with an admittance that he did, as alleged by Brit rag News of The World (see article below) smoke dope and has issued an apology for this!

Has he – or more importantly his advisors – ever heard of the concept of “Plausible Deniability”?!

The so-called “shocking photo showing him smoking a cannabis pipe” isn’t really proof of anything!

Where’s the evidence that it is indeed cannabis in the bong? Could he not claim that there was something else in there?

Where’s the evidence that whatever was in the bong was “ingested”? He could say it was just a pose for a camera shot and he didn’t dare inhale!

The article also contains a number of hearsay comments such as “you could tell Michael had smoked before” which are plain silly and very easily refutable!

As to the time of the photograph, there’s no proof at all as to when the shot was taken … it could have been years ago!

Furthermore, with the angle of the shot and the lack of clarity therein, it’s not actually obvious that it is Phelps! Could this perhaps have been some guy who kind of looks like him?! There’s not exactly 8 gold medals round his neck in the shot!

Anyway, we’re surprised at the furore about this nothing event! If he’d been photographed with a shot of Jack Daniels down his throat, there would have been nothing made of it!

In any event, nobody would exactly confuse Phelps with Einstein! So he is perhaps bound to engage in daftness now and again! So what? He’s entitled to unwind after his hard work and achievements!

Most importantly, he’s not hurting anyone! No GBH, no violence, no rape, no assault, no shooting himself in his leg … no nothing!

Let’s remember he’s a swimmer, not the President of the USA! Oops, bad analogy perhaps – we forgot about the cigars, the desk activity and that dress!

Instead of trying to catch Mikey with a bong, they should be trying to find that cache of steroids some believe he must be taking to reach the insane level of superiority he illustrated in Beijing! That would be a real story!

Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps has tonight acknowledged that the shocking photo showing him smoking a cannabis pipe is authentic.

He admitted “regrettable behaviour” and “bad judgement” after the News of the World published an exclusive photo showing him inhaling from a marijuana pipe.

In a statement released to The Associated Press, the swimmer, who won a record eight gold medals at the Beijing Games, did not dispute the authenticity of the exclusive picture.

I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again

“I engaged in behaviour which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgement,” Phelps said.

“I’m 23 years old and despite the successes I’ve had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again.”

14-times Olympic gold medal winner Michael Phelps caught with cannabis pipe

http://www.newsoftheworld.co.uk/news/150832/14-times-Olympic-gold-medal-winner-Michael-Phelps-caught-with-bong-cannabis-pipe.html
By Georgina Dickinson
01/02/2009

THIS is the astonishing picture which could destroy the career of the greatest competitor in Olympic history.

In our exclusive photo Michael Phelps, who won a record EIGHT gold medals for swimming at the Beijing games last summer, draws from a bong.

The glass pipes are generally used to smoke cannabis.

And after sporting chiefs announced laws which mean four-year bans for drug-taking, Phelps’ dreams of adding to his overall 14 gold medal tally at the 2012 games in London could already be OVER.

Those dreams seemed the last thing on his mind when he puffed from the bong during two days of partying with students last November, a quiet time in the swimming calendar when athletes would not expect to get tested for drugs.

One party-goer who witnessed the star’s behaviour told the News of the World: “He was out of control from the moment he got there.

“If he continues to party like that I’d be amazed if he ever won any more medals again.”

Phelps’ aides went into a panic over our story and offered us a raft of extraordinary incentives not to run the bong picture.

It was on November 6, weeks after his Beijing triumph, that 23-year-old Phelps surprised students at the University Of South Carolina in Columbia by showing up unannounced at a house party.

He was visiting Jordan Matthews, a girl he was secretly seeing who was a student there.

Our source revealed: “Michael came to visit Jordan but ended up just getting wasted every night.

“He arrived with a group of girls hanging all over him. Jaws hit the floor when he walked in. You don’t get many celebrities in Columbia, so when Phelps comes to your party it’s a very big deal.

“He didn’t know many people so you’d think he’d be a little shy. But he was loud, obnoxious and slamming beers from the get-go.

“Every girl wanted a piece of him and every guy wanted to be his best buddy. He couldn’t get enough of all the attention.”

As he basked in his hero status, Phelps knocked back beers and shots of spirits. And when a student offered him the glass bong engraved with red writing, he did not hesitate, says our source.

The 6ft 4ins athlete, in a white T-shirt and navy cap worn back to front, clasped the device in his huge hands and inhaled deeply.

Our source said: “You could tell Michael had smoked before. He grabbed the bong and a lighter and knew exactly what to do.

“He looked just as natural with a bong in his hands as he does swimming in the pool. He was the gold medal winner of bong hits. Michael ended up getting a little paranoid, though, because before too long he looked like he was nervous and ran out of the place.”

But the next night, Phelps was out partying again. The source added: “He was right back at it at Pavlov’s bar.

“Like the night before he was holding court, throwing back shots two at a time and pouring drinks to every cute girl.”

Drink has got Phelps into trouble before. In 2004, aged 19, he got 18 months probation for driving while under the influence.

His wild behaviour is in stark contrast to the grim regime which took him to the top of his sport.

He once described his life, saying: “All you do is eat, sleep, swim; eat, sleep, swim; eat, sleep, swim.”

Last night Phelps’ management team and the sporting world closed ranks over the scandal.

The US Olympics Committee, who have pledged to clamp down on drug use, refused to comment, as did USA Swimming and Phelps’ coach Bob Bowman.

More surprising still was the World Anti-Doping Agency’s refusal to comment, given that they introduced the four-year ban on sport’s drug users.

Phelps, who earned £4million last year in endorsements, has resumed training for the 2012 games.

But there were fears about his commitment when, weeks after the bong incident, he began dating former stripper Caroline Pal.

Phelps is represented by marketing giant Octagon, which works with huge brands such as Mastercard and HSBC. They admitted proven cannabis use would be “a major taint” on Phelps’ character.

Spokesman Clifford Bloxham offered us an extraordinary deal not to publish our story, saying Phelps would become our columnist for three years, host events and get his sponsors to advertise with us.

In return, he asked that we kill Phelps’ bong picture. Bloxham said: “It’s seeing if something potentially very negative for Michael could turn into something very positive for the News of the World.”

He stressed that the swimmer had taken 1,500 drug tests and never failed one.

Until now?

Another F*ckng Federer Failure

Tennis is not a sport we usually have much truck with. It’s kind of boring, kind of stupid and, erm, kind of gay!

But we do like a wager and seeing that “Roger the (title) dodger” was available at 5/2 before the Aussie Open while Andy Murray – totally insanely – was favourite at much shorter odds, we had to have a little punt.

And all was hunky dory as we approached the final against Steroid-Boy Nadal, where the odds on “Roger the (title) dodger” had dissolved into 4/7, while Nadal was almost 2/1.

We’re thinking this is the ideal way for Fed to show he’s still “the Man” and take a big step on the road to getting his World Number One ranking back. Also, Fed’s form has generally – aside from Round 1 – been excellent in the tournament while the surface was much more to his liking than Nadal’s. Furthermore, everyone’s assuming that Nadal’s Semi-final epic – which ran for about 10 hours or something – would have taken its toll! So the bet’s looking good now!

Yap, looking very good! Until, a few hours before the final, when a crazy interview with “Roger the (title) dodger” was broadcast!

Now, we’ve seen numerous interviews with Fed down the years and in these he generally seemed calm and reasonably intelligent. But not today! Not today!

So in this interview, Rog starts going on about how for years he has been the greatest in the game, the equivalent, he said, of the likes of Tiger Woods in golf, Michael Schumacher in Formula 1 and Valentino Rossi in MotoGP!

Erm … fair enough, you were! – maybe will be again – but you don’t go saying that in interviews! When the hell do you hear Tiger Woods saying he’s the Michael Schumacher of golf and in a different league to the rest? Of course he is, but he doesn’t go shouting about it!

And it didn’t stop there! No, no, no! Mad Rog then starts to list players he’s come up against in the past – and some players he still comes up against, now – rattling off a series of names such as Henman, Djokovic, Blake and Roddick, amongst others, and dismissing them as not ever being real challengers to his superiority! This is not only arrogant, not only stupid but incredibly insulting to those players, some of whom he will be encountering in various important matches in the coming season! We really hope these ‘sub-Rog’ players whip Fed’s ass when that happens!

Rog then goes on to describe how happy he is to have a real challenger in the shape of Nadal! What? So he likes being outclassed consistently on all surfaces – even on his grass bastion of Wimbeldon – and being kicked off his world number one spot?

Also he goes on about how much he likes Rafa in and outside the tennis court! What the fuck does that mean? You’re not supposed to like your competitors, especially not in the forum of battle!

Man, we knew there and then that the jig was up for this arrogant and addled ass, and that we wouldn’t be collecting any readies from Mr. Bookie!

How true that turned out to be!

What’s more, Federer not only let himself down on the court, but again later at the presentation ceremony, crying like a little bitch! He must’ve been through hundreds of such presentations but he was acting like he was a sixteen year old girl at the first!!

The clear problem Rog has, and this has melted his lil brain, seems to be an obsession, sexual or otherwise, for Steroid boy!! Ok, just bang him and get it over with, so you can get back to winning Tournaments!!

Michael Ballack Über Alles – Über plonker!

Ya Vol! What an Über moron!!

The arrogant, over-rated, useless German, just before yesterday’s mauling by Man Utd comes up with this insanely dumb statement!

Herr Ballack said in the News of the World, “A few weeks ago I was sure United were our strongest opponents but now I think Liverpool are the major threat.”

Well actually Herr Bollox could be right. Liverpool are indeed Chelsea’s Biggest Threat. For second place in the league!!

However, the way things are going for the mercenaries, Aston Villa could well end up their biggest threat! For third place in the league!!

Michael Ballack: Liverpool Are Chelsea’s Biggest Threat, Not Manchester United

by Mike Maguire, Goal.com

from http://www.goal.com

As he prepares to step out at Old Trafford this afternoon, Michael Ballack has declared that Manchester United are no longer the “major threat” to Chelsea’s title ambitions.

The Germany captain instead believes that Liverpool, who drew 0-0 with Stoke City yesterday, are the main obstacle the Blues must overcome in their quest for a fourth English championsip.

Ballack said in the News of the World, “A few weeks ago I was sure United were our strongest opponents but now I think Liverpool are the major threat.”

Such a statement would have been met with derisive laughter last season, or in any of the past Premier League campaigns, as the Reds have failed to mount any serious challenge since the competition’s inception.

But Rafael Benitez’s side are different prospect this term. They sit atop the table after 20 games and have shown they are capable of winning in all manner of ways.

What’s more, the Anfield giants have proved themselves against their direct rivals: Man United fell on Merseyside in September, and a month later Xabi Alonso dealt the Pensioners their first league loss at Stamford Bridge since 2004.

And Ballack reckons the 18-time champs have what it takes to snare their long overdue 19th title.

He said, “They have shown in the past few games that they have the character to deal with being top of the league. They have shown they can handle pressure. Liverpool is a team we respect.

“It’s not like the past few seasons when they were inconsistent. It’s not like it is the middle of October or November — it’s the middle of January and they look like they can sustain a challenge for the title.”

Chelsea lie second in the standings and will move within one point of top spot if they down the third-placed Red Devils today.

Chelsea collapse … again!

Manchester United 3-0 Chelsea
(Vidic 45′ + 2, Rooney 63′, Berbatov 87′)
What a shocking result! Well shocking only to the extent that it wasn’t 6-0 or 7-0!

Chelsea got a total mauling in the second half and the pampered over-rated mercenaries just couldn’t handle it!

Totally outclassed, outplayed and outgunned! And with a simian referee and one-eyed linesman in their corner! And by a side badly affected by injuries to key players!

Scolari’s panicked change to 4-4-2 at half-time did not help matters any! The mad Brazilian’s really lost the plot lately! Looks like he could be back in Amazonia again real soon!

There must have been a Premiership record yesterday too with Anelka, to our count, touching the ball once after he came on in the second half! Nice work Nicky!

1-0 N.Vidic 45′

2-0 W.Rooney 63′

3-0 D.Berbatov 87′

Stuttering Chelsea outmuscled by slick United

by Tom Bryant
www.guardian.co.uk

It was a day in which Chelsea would come to rue early wake up calls. First came the fire alarm at their hotel that led to them being shaken from their slumber at 7am. Then came a well-worked United corner routine that resulted in a ruled-out goal – a warning the visitors failed to heed.

As the opening half, in which Chelsea had for the most part been the equal of their hosts, drew to a close, they conceded a corner. Wayne Rooney nudged the ball onto the pitch, before sauntering off, allowing Ryan Giggs to stroll casually over as if he was supposed to take the corner all along. Then, as Chelsea’s players arranged themselves, presuming the ball to be out of play, Giggs whipped a cross to Ronaldo who headed the ball authoritatively home.

However, either both referee Howard Webb and his assistant failed to understand the trick or Rooney’s failure to explain it to them in advance meant the subsequent goal was ruled out.

It was a lucky escape for Chelsea, whose frailty at set-pieces is quickly becoming problematic, but United’s bad luck was redressed moments later. From the re-take Chelsea stood frozen as Dimitar Berbatov rose to flick on to Nemanja Vidic, who had arrived unmarked at the far post to tuck the ball away.

What had been a tightly contested game, in which Deco pulled the strings for the visitors in the opening quarter while Dimitar Berbatov wasted the home side’s best chance on the 30 minute mark, became a far more open affair in the second half. Nicolas Anelka’s half-time arrival, replacing Deco, left United with more room to manoeuvre and so it was that Ronaldo was able to engineer himself some space on the left flank.

After toying with Chelsea right-back Jose Bosingwa, the Portuguese back-heeled to the overlapping Evra. His cross whistled past Berbatov’s forehead before Wayne Rooney toe-poked the ball past Cech, despite being apparently stranded behind an impotent Ashley Cole.

The game was one the Chelsea manager claimed was must-win before the kick-off but, with Jose Mourinho looking on from the stands, their chances became ever-more limited. It was a former Mourinho favourite who was presented with the best of them. Yet, from the first Didier Drogba sliced the ball into touch for a throw-in, from the second he swiped an air-shot with only Edwin van der Sar to beat.

From there, Chelsea seemed to slump into torpor. Rooney, his performance galvanised by his goal, was an ever more irritating thorn in their side. But it was Ronaldo who saw another goal disallowed after a marginal offside decision went in Chelsea’s favour. But, by then, the game was finished – so much so that Dimitar Berbatov’s 86th minute strike, tapping home from a Ronaldo free-kick, was just the icing on the cake. Again it was a goal made on the flanks, again it was a cross that scuppered Chelsea.

The result lifts Manchester United back above Aston Villa into third but leaves Chelsea four points astray of Liverpool in second.

Steven Gerrard in Scouser Arrest Shocker!

Man, we’re shocked! Another Scouser arrested! You gotta be joking! Scouseland is a lovely place with no violence or crime whatsoever! Full of hard-working contributors to society!

Liverpool’s only decent player, yet very over-rated, scouser Steven Gerrard has spent some time in the nick for affray in the wee small hours outside some dodgy scouse night-club.

What we’re most surprised about is the fact that it’s only his first arrest!

We see that Gerrard has hailed this current Liverpool side as the best he has played in!

Talk about damning with faint praise!

All the other sides he’s played in have been shite! Not alone have they NEVER won the Premiership, they’ve never even come close! (Ok, they did have a very fluky win in the 2005 Champs League – but they were luckier than OJ Simpson at his murder trial!)

from the excellent sportinglife.com

England and Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard has been charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and affray following an alleged nightclub brawl, Merseyside police said.

The Reds captain was charged on Tuesday morning along with two other men who had also been arrested after a “disturbance” outside a late-night bar in Southport, Merseyside in the early hours of Monday morning.

The venue’s DJ, a 34-year-old local man, required hospital treatment after suffering facial injuries.

Gerrard, 28, was released from Southport police station early on Tuesday morning.

He was at the restaurant and bar – which turns into a nightclub – with friends to celebrate Liverpool’s 5-1 win over Newcastle.

In a statement, a Merseyside Police spokesman said: “Merseyside Police has charged Steven Gerrard, 28 years, of Formby, Sefton, John Doran, 29, and Ian Smith, 19 years, both from Huyton, Liverpool, with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and affray following an incident at Bold Street in Southport in the early hours of Monday, December 29.

“The three men will be appearing at North Sefton Magistrates’ Court on January 23.”

The spokesman said Gerrard and the two other men had been bailed and three other men who were arrested in connection with the incident were released on police bail pending further inquiries.

After the game on Sunday Gerrard, who scored twice, hailed his table-topping side as the best he has played in.

But several hours later he was apparently caught up in an altercation outside the Lounge Inn in Bold Street.

Police were called and arrested six men on suspicion of assault in nearby Lord Street.

The town centre business remained shut yesterday but evidence of a fight inside could be seen through the windows.

Spots of blood were clearly visible on the floor, along with shards of broken glass.

Gerrard has been capped by England 70 times and has captained his country on four occasions.

He was made an MBE last year and received an honorary fellowship from Liverpool John Moores University.

Liverpool’s next match is against Preston in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Weekend footy

A few interesting match-ups this week in the Premiership. A few shocks await!

A few pieces of potential value too, starting with the best one – Everton at 5/2 away at Man City. Also in this match, the always dangerous Jolean Lescott at 8/1 to score anytime is interesting.

Man Utd away to Spurs, with a somewhat depleted squad but an amazing record at the Lane, are borderline value at 4/5.

Boro, who lift their game against the best teams, at home to a “jeckyll and hyde” Arsenal – whose ‘unsurmountable’ problems, as splashed across every media outlet 3 weeks back, seem to have very miraculously and very suddenly disappeared!! – are underrated at 4/1.

Zola’s first managerial trip back to his former stomping ground sees West Ham – away to an over-hyped Chelsea, whose home form has been poor this season – at a staggering 18/1! Almost tempting!

In Spanishland, the usual dumb hype machine has gone into overdrive hailing Barce as the greatest thing since sliced porn! We don’t buy it. Wait until they meet an English team in the Champs League! … Surely Real shouldn’t be a massive 11/2 in “El Classico” in the Camp Nou!

Antonio Cassano – by Gabriele Marcotti

More about mad Antonio’s autobiography and more!

https://i2.wp.com/enzodelvecchio.go.ilcannocchiale.it/blogs/bloggerarchimg/enzodelvecchio/p1_cassano_0105.jpg

by Gabriele Marcotti

www.timesonline.co.uk

Football is filled with so many military parallels that it’s the closest thing to war without violence (usually, anyway). Players are regimented, they train like soldiers under the eye of a drill sergeant, their coach. Team-mates build the kind of bond that is comparable to that which exists between those who fight and serve together. And, of course, there’s the discipline, the conformity and the coalescing to form something that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Then along comes Antonio Cassano, a guy for whom discipline and conformity take a back seat to honesty and self-indulgence. How honest is he? Well, a few pages into his book, Dico tutto (e se fa caldo gioco all’ombra), translated as “I’ll tell you everything (and if it’s hot I’ll play in the shade)”, Cassano shares the fact that, when he was 12, he had a crush on his teacher. Sweet, right? Except he also tells us that he would go to the bathroom thinking about her and “well, you can imagine what came next”.

Normal and healthy, no doubt, but also a little too much information than we are accustomed to. Especially from a footballing superstar.

And what about the self-indulgence? Cassano loves football, but he also loves sex and food. He says he has slept with some “600 to 700” women, which, given that he is 26, is quite a feat. However, now that he plans to get married, he’ll presumably never match the late Wilt Chamberlain, the legendary basketball star, who claims that he had 20,000 sexual partners, which works out at just over one a day from the age of 15.

When Cassano was at Real Madrid, he would pay the bellboy to sneak a woman into his hotel room late at night on the eve of each home game. When he was done, he would gorge himself on four or five pastries. “Sex plus food: a perfect night”, he writes.

Because most of us who love football have come to terms, at some time or other, with the fact that we lack the God-given skills to fulfil our sporting dreams, we harbour a natural resentment towards people such as Cassano, men who had the gift but never fully exploited it. And Cassano certainly had — and in many ways still has — the ability to be one of the best players in the world. He has a rare cocktail of physical strength, pace, flair and technique, which is why Fabio Capello’s Roma paid £18 million for him when he was just shy of his 19th birthday, making him the most expensive teenage signing in the world at the time.

Needless to say, he has not come close to tapping his outrageous talent. And it’s not just the passion for sex and junk food. Lack of discipline and insubordination accompanied him almost everywhere. He says his favourite routine when he disagrees with a coach is to rip off his shirt and say: “Fine. In that case, why don’t you go on the pitch and play instead of me?” He has pulled this stunt with half-a-dozen managers. On other occasions, he has pretended to be injured or ill to miss a game and, once, he simply failed to turn up, literally locking himself in his house for three days (presumably with ample supplies of junk food).

Not even Capello, who managed him at Roma and Real, could tame him for any length of time. Despite admitting that he had a love-hate relationship with the present England manager — who once terrorised him by furiously chasing Cassano up and down the training ground bellowing: “Don’t run away! Only cowards run!” — he says that there is an underlying respect there, which is more than you can say for most of the coaches he has worked with.

It’s one of the realities of football that talent trumps (almost) anything. You can behave this way and — if not get away with it — at least live the life of a multimillionaire, playing top-flight football in front of adoring crowds. “I spent the first 17 years of my life dirt-poor,” said Cassano, who was raised by a single mother in one of the most crime-ridden neighbourhoods in Italy and said he is certain that had it not been for football, he would have become a hoodlum. “Then I spent nine years living the life of a millionaire. That means I need another eight years living the way I do now and then I’ll be even.”

That’s not what managers want to hear, which may explain why Cassano is now playing for Sampdoria, a mid-table team. But he doesn’t mind. Unlike 99.9 per cent of footballers, he isn’t preoccupied with “winning trophies”. “Winning is nice, but it doesn’t make you happy,” he writes.

“The problem is that we live in a culture obsessed with success. We fool ourselves into thinking we have to do our best and make sacrifices to succeed. But why? Trophies come and go. Once you’ve retired, it will all be gone, they’ll just be numbers in an almanac. And, except for [Diego] Maradona and Pelé and maybe a couple others, nobody will remember you or what you’ve won.”

“What is truly important is being happy now. I know I haven’t given 100 per cent physically or mentally to this game. At best, I gave 50 per cent. Maybe a tiny bit more in the good years. But so what? Thanks to my talent, I live like a king, I play football and I have a great time. If I had wanted to give 100 per cent, I would have stayed at Real Madrid, sacrificed lots of things, done my very best and I probably would have succeeded. Instead, I’m here at Sampdoria and I love it.”

Words that would bring most people’s blood to boiling point. We’re taught that squandering talent and opportunity is one of the biggest moral crimes an individual can commit. And that may be true. But it’s equally true that in a world of trite clichés and gutless conformity — and I’m not just talking about football — a man such as Cassano who can be brutally honest not just to himself, but to the whole world, makes for a refreshing change.

Will he regret it once his youth and talent have succumbed to the passing of time? “I don’t think so, but, if I do feel that way one day, I’ll let you know,” he writes.

It’s hard to tell if he will. He already has a plan for life after football. “I plan to get fat,” he writes. “I mean really, really fat. Even now, when I don’t play for a month, I’ll put on a dozen pounds. I plan on eating. A lot. I plan on eating everything.”

He ends his book by comparing his talent to a Ferrari. To get the best out of such a car, you need to be on the open road, pushing the engine to its limit, roaring along at 150mph. “I’d be driving my Ferrari through the centre of town in third gear, window down, arm out, smiling happily,” he writes.

Roy Keane – Tony Cascarino & Stan Collymore give their cent’s worth!

Controversy-stoking chancer Tony Cascarino gives his one cent’s worth on the latest chapter in the unending Keane saga!

In typically melodramatic fashion, he comes up with the ridiculous conclusion “this is the end for him“!

Anyone who knows anything about Keane, and indeed about the esteem in which he is held (totally opposite to Cas!) throughout the world of football – across the world – would realise how dumb that statement is!

As an aside, we’re amazed that Cascarino crazily has some reputation as a writer, when his Times column is ghost-written, as was his autobiography (written by former cyclist Paul Kimmage – who is a very decent writer)! We’re actually not sure Cas could even write his autograph himself!

The more intelligent and less reactive Stan Collymore is far more sensible saying I feel that the story isn’t finished with Roy Keane.”


This resignation will be considered a significant personal defeat by Keane – and we all know defeat is something that never sits well on his proud shoulders. This setback will only fire him up even more and drive him on to make a return
very very soon.

He will learn a lot from this, his first managerial stint! Yes, remember this is his first managerial appointment! And remember Roy did do an amazing job taking Sunderland from bottom of the Championship to runaway Championship winners – and then on to a satisfactory Premiership campaign and Premiership survival last year. Realise too that even now, after a truly horrific string of results, Sunderland are only 2 wins away from the top half of the Premiership table!!

Many of those players that Keano spent a fortune on lately, need to have a close look at themselves. Polar opposite to how perfectionist and born winner Keane was as a player, Roy’s greatest difficulty has been trying to deal with lazy losers and pussies like these! However, it is critical that Roy does learn how to deal with these over-rated, over-pampered multi-millionaires before success at the top level as manager will come his way, as there are increasingly more of these types in the modern game.


Tony Cascarino believes former Republic of Ireland team-mate Roy Keane has taken the easy way out and will never manage again after resigning as Sunderland boss.

Former Manchester United captain Keane quit as Black Cats manager on Thursday, with reserve-team boss Ricky Sbragia in temporary charge after chairman Niall Quinn failed to talk Keane out of quitting.

And Cascarino told talkSport: “He’s taken the easy option.

“He’s not rolled up his sleeves and even with as much courage as Roy Keane says he’s got, this is the end for him.

“He’ll not manage again. No-one will give him the opportunity to manage a football club because they won’t trust him. That’s the bottom line.

“Up until the last few weeks where it’s gone pear-shaped and he’s not had the results, I thought he’d done a good job.

“But they are only two wins away from mid-table.

“You’re going to have bad results in your management career as you do in your playing career. But you don’t just walk away.”

Cascarino also doubts Keane ever united the dressing room, citing what he believes is the former Manchester United’s lack of communication.

“What amazes me about Roy, and I’ve shared many dressing rooms and played lots of matches with him, is that he would be very insular about the way he felt and very rarely said things like he says via the media, and that’s very strange for someone who says they are very honest.

“He never said things in the dressing room, very little came from Roy, he didn’t have friendships, he didn’t care and ultimately his dealing with people has been his downfall.

“Knowing Roy, he’s never had a dressing room.

“He’s never had anybody on his side because he wouldn’t get that close to people.

“He would have them at arm’s length all the time and if you look at his signings, he’s churned players over at an incredible rate.”

But speaking on the same station, Stan Collymore said: “I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see him at Manchester United in the next five or six years in some capacity.

“I think that when Roy Keane took over at Sunderland he had a game plan to get them in the Premier League and he got them there earlier than expected.

“There are two ways of looking at it [Keane’s resignation]. He’s either thinking he wants to preserve his legacy at Sunderland or he genuinely feels he has taken the club as far as they can go.”

Asked by Alvin Martin if he felt Keane could manage United after walking out on a struggling Sunderland, Collymore said: “Manchester United and its directors, the David Gills of this world, would know Roy better than most people in the game.

“They know what his qualities are and maybe in a year or two years’ time when Sir Alex finishes, his legacy as a player and the goodwill he would get from the United supporters and the United board would not be lost on them.

“I feel that the story isn’t finished with Roy Keane.

“I can’t believe he’s lost to the game. It wouldn’t surprise me if he went to ply his trade abroad for a little while.

“But I can’t get my head around anything other than Roy Keane being back at Manchester United in some capacity sooner rather than later.”

Antonio Cassano will tell you everything

https://i2.wp.com/enzodelvecchio.go.ilcannocchiale.it/blogs/bloggerarchimg/enzodelvecchio/p1_cassano_0105.jpg
I made friends with one of the waiters. His job was to bring me 3 or 4 cornetti after I had sex. He would bring the cornetti to the stairs, I would bring the girl and we would make a trade: he took the girl, I stuffed myself with cornetti. Sex plus food, the perfect night“.

Eccentric Italian footballer Antonio Cassano has released a rather interesting autobiography!

Never one to keep his own council of hide what he feels!

Interesting array of sexual exploits too! And trading of girls for late night snacks!!

In the autobiography, he claims to have slept with between 600 and 700 women.

Sounds far more interesting than the usual bland football nitwits!

Antonio Cassano, from Bari, is an Italian footballer currently playing for Serie A club U.C. Sampdoria and the Italian national team.

He is known for being the worst player ever to play for the Italian National Team!

He’s known too for his short temper, as well as his ability, on the pitch, which led to the coining of the neologism Cassanata by his former coach, Fabio Capello, in November 2002. The word is regularly used by Italian journalists as a euphemism of any behavior incompatible with team spirit in football!

Cassano is currently dating 17-year old Carolina Marcialis, who plays water polo at Diavolina Nervi. He has recently stated their relationship as the reason for him calming down his antics and settling down.

Piece below from http://italy.theoffside.com

News arrives that Antonio Cassano has (with the help of writer Gianluigi Pardo) has authored his first autobiography, entitled “Vi Dico Tutto” (I’ll tell you everything). And as always, Cassano does indeed tell us everything. We’ll have to wait for the book to actually be released (it will be on Italian bookshelves next week, November 19 to be exact) to read everything but some excerpts were released and they are quite amusing and interesting.

His origins

First Cassano talks about growing up in Bari Vecchia: “I was poor my whole life, but I never worked, mainly because I don’t know how to do anything.”

He’s in love with Bari Vecchia, Antò, Piazza Ferrarese more than anything, his home. “I played near the bancarelle (little market stands), everyone wanted me on their team and bet 10, 15 or 20 thousand lire on the team that I played on. However I wasn’t dumb: I wanted the money, so they had to give me a percentage“. And there, near the bancarelle, there wasn’t much joking around: “Frequently you heard gunshots, police sirens, ambulances“.

His judgment of his current life: “So far I have lived 17 years as a disgraziato (ungrateful person) and 9 as a millionaire. I have 8 years left to break even“. (I guess that means he’ll be playing for 8 more years?) A phenomenon on the pitch, little Antonio wasn’t so much a phenomen in school: “I had a ‘2′ in all subjects [Italy uses a grading system from 1-10, 2 is almost equivalent to a 20]. I failed a grade 6 times, from elementary school to middle school”.

Antonio grew and he became obsessed with cars: “My first love was a Volkswagen Golf that [Bari President] Matarrese gave me as a gift after Bari-Inter. A promise kept by the president. The car was free but for the license I had to spend a little bit, not much, they gave me a good price. When I was 17 in the space of a few months they took away from me two 125 cc. motorcycles and three cars”.

Relationships with coaches

“Eugenio Fascetti (former Bari manager) is the only manager I never caused trouble with. I detested Claudio Gentile (former Italy U21 manager)”.

To Luciano Spalletti he said: “You’re not coaching those useless players you had at Udinese, this isn’t your house, it’s my house“.

Then on Fabio Capello: “In Tarragona he made me and Ronaldo warm up the whole second half without putting us in. In the locker room I told him ‘you’re a piece of shit, you’re more fake than Monopoly money“.

Then on Luigi Del Neri: “I never understood what the fuck he was talking about and he was too ambiguous.“.

About former Roma striker Gabriel Batistuta he said “he had a smell under his nose” (like saying he had a certain air to him).

Then about his falling out with Francesco Totti, which started when both players were guests on Maria De Filippi’s TV show and the Roma captain took home 80% of the appearance fee.

His two passions: Food and Sex

With food and sex Cassano doesn’t joke around. He talks about his important stories (”Four girlfriends in 11 years is a low number“) and the rest (”To summarize, I had a few other adventures. Let’s say that between the 600 and 700 women I’ve been with, around 20 were from the show business world“).

And then: “Many times I played great games right after having sex. Go look at Roma-Juve 4-0. I had sex at six in the morning that Sunday, with one of the many ‘friends’ I had at that time. I

n Madrid it was even easier, because we were in a hotel, the whole squad and staff on one floor, so on the floors above or below you could invite whoever you wanted to meet you during the night. I made friends with one of the waiters. His job was to bring me 3 or 4 cornetti after I had sex. He would bring the cornetti to the stairs, I would bring the girl and we would make a trade: he took the girl, I stuffed myself with cornetti. Sex plus food, the perfect night“.
