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.

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“.

Keano bows out at Sunderland

So, Keano bows out at Sunderland. We can’t say we’re too surprised. Things seem to have spiralled out of control for Roy in the past few weeks, after an excellent start to the season when it looked like Sunderland this year had a squad of some quality and depth.

Then came a horror stretch of six defeats in seven matches and four in succession at the Stadium of Light which saw the club’s early confidence quickly dissipate.

Some of his signings are very questionable characters indeed – the likes of Pascal Chimbonda, Djibril Cissé and El-Hadji Diouf – and Keane’s discplinarian approach has not worked with these unpredictable and unreliable mavericks.

Keane’s reluctance to extend his contract that expires at the end of the season had also led increased the instability. The suits, the players and potential signings always need the assurance of an apparently stable future.

Keano’s uncharacteristic recent comments full of self doubt and doubt about the club also more than hinted at a parting of the ways.

We need to recall though the wonderful job Keane did at Sunderland, taking them out of a tailspin to win the Championship and then cope adequately with a limited squad in last season’s Premiership.

He will always remain a real leged at Manchester United for his leadership and peerless performance level.

The Premiership has not seen the back of Roy in terms of management either!

www.timesonline.co.uk

What are the main reasons behind Keane’s departure?

I think there are a number of factors behind this. Of course the run of games, six defeats in the past seven games, that has taken them into the relegation zone, is a major reason. But more than that, it was about whether Keane was still getting his message across to his players, and from what has happened this morning it is clear it was felt he wasn’t able to do that.

Was this Keane’s decision?

No I don’t think we can say that just yet. The past few days have been spent taking stock. We know he had been thinking about whether he was the man to take the club forward, but equally the club had asked him whether he could adapt his style of management to work with the players he now has at his disposal.

Working with a personality as unpredictable as Keane’s is not straightforward and although he was asked to curb his authoritarian approach in an attempt to get the best out of the players, especially the foreign imports, it seems he wasn’t able to do that. So for now we can’t say this decision was purely down to him.

Where does Keane go from here?

He is one of football’s most volatile characters and although he was being spoken about as a future Manchester United manager just a few months ago that may change now. It is difficult to see how he will ever be given a better chance as a manager than he was at Sunderland. Keane has only ever had the support of his board, he has been given everything he asked for and been allowed to build the club in his own image without interference.

But it seems hard to believe that anyone would now be prepared to give such a level of control anywhere else.

Who could replace Keane at Sunderland?

Sunderland spoke to Sam Allardyce before they appointed Keane, and with him being out of work and a former Sunderland player he will be the bookmakers’ favourite. It is too early to start speculating, but Allardyce is an obvious candidate.

Does this development mark Sunderland out as realistic relegation candidates?

Well, they will be expected to lose against Manchester United on Saturday. But after that they have pivotal matches against West Bromwich Albion, Hull City and Blackburn Rovers. What is stacked in their favour is the quality and experience of the players they have at their disposal.

If a manager can come in and get the best out of this squad I am confident they have enough to steer themselves away from trouble.

Roy Keane has parted company with Sunderland (Getty Images)

by Ben Smith

www.timesonline.co.uk

Roy Keane has resigned as manager of Sunderland after crisis talks on Wearside this morning.

The board accepted the Irishman’s decision to leave Sunderland with immediate effect and Ricky Sbragia, the club’s first-team coach, will take over team affairs on an interim basis, assisted by reserve-team coach Neil Bailey and Dwight Yorke.

Keane had come under increasing pressure after a run of six defeats in their past seven matches. The club have lost four in succession at the Stadium of Light and have taken root in the Premier League relegation zone.

Niall Quinn, the Sunderland chairman, wished Keane well after his departure.

“I would like to pay thanks to Roy Keane for all the hard work he has put in, progressing this club, lifting its status and growing its worldwide profile,” he said.

“Roy deserves huge respect for his contribution and the manner in which he guided the club from the depths of the Championship back to the Premier League. His winning mentality and single-mindedness were just what this club needed when Drumaville took over shortly before his arrival.

“Roy’s decision to stand aside and allow someone else to take charge of the next chapter sums up his desire to always do what is best for the club. Even in his departure he has been more concerned for the welfare of the players and his staff than himself.

“He had put a lot of effort in here, brought more than just his presence here – he brought a way of thinking into this place. He was instrumental in developing a winning mentality – that was the toughest thing of all for him to come and do when we were at the foot of the Championship.

“He brought standards to this club which are amazing. But to do that, it’s intense. He is such a respected figure around the world that the media is intense, the fan pressure is intense.

“I tried for two years to keep as much pressure off him as possible, but obviously the Premier League is the Premier League and I guess it came to the point where Roy thought he had reached the end of that journey.

“Reluctantly, I accepted that. It was not the easiest thing to do, but I think it was the best thing to do in the circumstances at that point.”

Quinn admitted that he had attempted to persuade Keane to remain at the club but realised he was fighting a losing battle.

“Roy, as he says himself, is his harshest critic. He just felt he had completed his journey here, and he just felt he didn’t want to get it unstuck any further and find ourselves in deeper, darker territory.

“That’s the measure of the guy. It’s funny, in situations like this, I am sure nine times out of ten, the chairman is saying how the manager was trying to keep his job. It was the other way round.

“It’s a disappointing day in many respects, but of course, we fully respect his decision.

“And of course, once he made his decision, I said to him, ‘I know you too well, Roy, to try to overturn it now’ once he went over that line.”

Keane had been been due to attend a press conference at 1pm today but the manager and club had already reached breaking point after a morning of talks.

In a brief statement, Keane thanked his staff for their support.

“I would like to thank my staff, players, Niall Quinn and in particular the fans for their support during my time at Sunderland, and I would like to wish the club every success in the future,” he said.

Disquiet had grown on Wearside over the past few weeks as results went the wrong way and Keane refused to sign an extension to the contract that was due to run out at the end of the season. Speculation heightened as Keane publicly questioned his ability to arrest his side’s decline.

“I ask myself every single day if I am the right man for Sunderland,” Keane said after his team’s 4-1 defeat to Bolton on Saturday.

“I asked myself this morning and I said that I was. Tomorrow morning if the answer’s no we will have to look at it.

“I have to be honest in my assessment. It’s not about what’s best for Roy Keane. It’s Sunderland Football Club. I might wake up on Monday morning and think I’m the right man. On Tuesday it might be different.”

Last month, local radio reports said that Keane was on the verge of being sacked and Bookmakers suspended betting on the possibility of the Irishman either being axed or walking out.

Keane, 37, was appointed manager in August 2006 and was given unprecedented financial backing by the club’s board. He led Sunderland into the Premier League in his first season in charge and finished 15th in his maiden Premier League campaign.

Keane spent more than £80 million bringing in the likes of Djibril Cisse, Anton Ferdinand, El-Hadji Diouf, Pascal Chimbonda and Steed Malbranque, but his new additions – questioned by many – have failed to gel and he leaves with the club in 18th position.

Sick Punters bet on football legend Gazza’s death

Paul Gascoigne – It’s a dead cert!

Punters bet on football legend Gazza’s death

It may be a grave situation, but for many punters it’s a dead cert – members of an internet fan forum are taking bets on when England football legend Paul Gascoigne is going to die.

from http://www.bild.de

Gascoigne, known to millions as Gazza, has had very public issues with alcohol and mental health problems since he quit the game.

But now, supporters of Scottish club Celtic – the bitter rivals of Rangers, a club Gazza once played for – have invented a sinister betting game when participants can guess the time of his death. The game appeared on the ‘Huddleboard’ website after the latest lurid story involving Gazza, who once took centre stage at World Cup 90 and Euro 96, reported that he had drunk a bottle of whiskey for breakfast.

The British ‘Daily Star’ newspaper published some of the bets being taken:

Benedicts11 wrote: “I give him three months,” while MartyBhoy believed it would be “nine months”.

AyrshireCSC said: “On the Queen’s birthday. They can both go. What a day that would be!”

Why is Gascoigne such a target for Celtic fans? Well, not only did he star for Rangers, but he is also English.

While the Celtic fans giggle over the betting, Gazza’s nearest and dearest are understandably shocked. A friend told the Daily Star: “It’s unbelievable. He [Paul] has gone through a rough time, as everyone knows. That’s really kicking a man when he’s down. Paul needs support, not sick b*****ds who want to push him into an early grave. I hope they rot in hell.”
