  1. Gerard Pique: God Amongst Men

    Not only is Pique tremendously talented: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVUKROh6y-o&feature=related and a pretty funny chap: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43ozSvk619Y But he's also managed to bag Shakira: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dWB4dyl-lw An inspiration for all men, I'm sure...
  2. FIFPro Team of the Year

    As usual, the FIFPro team of the year has largely been decided on who won the Champions League, and I wouldn't expect anything else from FIFA. There are some barmy choices here though... Iker Casillas Dani Alves... Has been pretty average defensively every time I've seen him play. Patrice Evra...

    Barcelona 2-1 Estudiantes de La Plata AET

    Not a vintage performance against a spirited Estudiantes side, but Barca confirm their status as the best in the world right now, and what could be more fitting than for the best player to grab the winner? That's six titles in 2009 for Barca: La Liga Copa del Rey Supercopa Champions League...
  4. Money Can't Buy You Class

    Money can you buy a lot of things. It can buy you a fast car, a nice house and a beautiful wife. It can buy you the worlds greatest player and, in Manchester City's case, it can buy you an incompetent defence. What money can't buy you, Manuel Pellegrini learnt tonight, is class. El Classico...

    Spain Pacify Iraqi Resistance

    Spain 1-0 Iraq Villa 55 The trouble with winning well is that it never goes unnoticed. For every barnstorming 5-0 victory, resplendent with glorious passing and breathtaking goals, there's always a coach out there somewhere who watches it and thinks, 'that's not going to happen to me.' More...

    United Blow Their Chance

    Barcelona 2-0 Manchester United Eto'o 10 Messi 70 He may have mellowed with age, enough at least to allow the dignitaries to slip a runners-up medal over his head while still smiling warmly, but Sir Alex Ferguson must be furious with the way that this Champions League final was allowed to...

    Cheated Chelsea Lose The Plot

    It was a night that should have been memorable for the beauty of Michael Essien's opening goal, but it is a raging Didier Drogba who will linger in the mind's eye. Furious with the referee's failure to award any one of four possible penalties, he shouted and screamed in his face before being...

    I wish I'd Gone To Hayes

    Barcelona 0-0 Chelsea So was it Guus Hiddink's tactics or Petr Cech's saves? Was it the referee and his failure to spot a late tug on Theirry Henry or was it Barcelona's inability to take their chances? Chelsea fans won't give two hoots. The net result of this rather grim affair was a scoreless...

    Long Way To Go

    There's a long way to go yet. After an almost flawless first year in charge, Fabio Capello was brought crashing down to earth in Seville by a breath-taking Spanish side who taught him a hard lesson in what it takes to win international honours. England kept pace with the European Champions for...

    Sir Alex Ferguson's relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Likening your guidance, as an employer, to the counsel of a father is a tactic that very few football managers could get away with, but what might sound melodramatic and over-familiar in some cases is perfectly suitable for Sir Alex Ferguson's relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo. "If you are...
