Whats Capello doing?

First off I'm not a Real Madrid supporter, I don't hate'em but they arn't my first choice team.

However, what Capello is doing to Real is just sad he's killing the team.

First stupid move, Play Cassano. Thats a stupid move, simple because Cassano sucks Robinho can fill his shoes better or give it to Ronaldo when he's back, Although I prefer Robinho starting.

Second stupid move, get Reyes and lose Baptista, seriously thats a big downgrade Baptista is way better then Reyes. Wenger got a steal there.

Third stupid move, bench Cicinho and declare him available for sale (8mil euro) anyone who saw Brazil vs Argentine saw how good Cicinho is, and how he can provide fire power up front and still cover back.

Finally, Robinho is an amazing player Capelly needs to find a place for him in the starting 11.

lastly, I hope Capello isn't trying to make Real play defensivly, it's not the Italian Seria A it's the Spanish league ;)

Ronaldinho







There's been a lot of e-mails, forum threads about Ronaldinho saying he dosn't support lebanon and that all lebanese children are terrorists. Moreover, him helping the zionist regime children and not wanting to help the lebanese chlidren.

Finally and through both Barcelona's offical website and Ronaldinho's offical website the following statement have been made regarding the issue

"It is absolutely false and cruel to claim that I said I don't care about children being killed. I have always been a supporter of children's rights and anybody who knows me knows that I consider these declarations being passed off as mine as being barbaric". The player fervently insists that he has not made any kind of announcement about his opinions of the conflict.

Ronaldinho already denied making these comments last week in his personal website www.ronaldinhogaucho.com. Here he says that "no social organisation has contacted me in relation to this conflict and that is why I have not made the commitment to participate in any kind of event. My desire is for all this to be resolved as soon as possible and for our dream of peace to become a reality." Ronaldinho insists, as he states in this clarification, that "I hope to be able to continue contributing to improving the world we live in and adding my grain of sand by using sport to help educate our young people".


So there you have it right from Ronaldinho's mouth.

so to the ones who started bashing Ronaldinho I'd like to say

Bandwagooners arn't welcome ;)

Slow Dance

Slow Dance

This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer.

She wants to see how many people get her poem.

It is quite the poem. Please pass it on.



This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a New York Hospital.


It! was sent by a medical doctor - Make sure to read what is in the closing
statement AFTER THE POEM.

SLOW DANCE


Have you ever watched kids


On a merry-go-round?


Or listened to the rain


Slapping on the ground?


Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?



Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.

Don't dance so fast.


Time is short.


The music won't last.

Do you run through each day

On the fly?

When you ask How are you?

Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done!

Do you lie in your bed


With the next hundred chores


Running through your head?


You'd better slow down


Don't dance so fast.


Time is short.


The music won't last.

Ever told your child,

We'll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste,

Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch,

Let a good friendship die

Cause you never had time

To call and say,"Hi"

You'd better slow down.

Don't dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere


You miss half the fun of getting there.


When you worry and hurry through your day,


It is like an unopened gift....


Thrown away.


Life is not a race.


Do take it slower


Hear the music


Before the song is over.

FORWARDED E-MAILS ARE TRACKED TO OBTAIN THE TOTAL COUNT.



Dear All:



PLEASE pass this mail on to everyone you know - even to those you don't
know! It is the request of a special girl who will soon leave this world
due to cancer.

This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted
to send a letter telling everyone to live their life to the fullest, since
she never will.

She'll never make it to prom, graduate from high school, or get married and
have a family of her own.

By you sending this to as many people as possible, you can give her and her
family a little hope, because with every name that this is sent to, The
American Cancer Society will donate 3 cents per name to her treatment and
recovery plan. One guy sent this to 500 people! So I know that we can at
least send it to 5 or 6. It's not even your money, just your time!

PLEASE PASS ON AS A LAST REQUEST

Bremen have klose and a great playmaker Diego.

CSKA got both Daniel Carvalho and Vagner Love.

Valancia have bought a lot of new players that should make'em stronger.



What's wrong with this pic?







Can anyone spot the person who doesn't belong there?

Here's a hint

Best Goal Keeper: Lehmann (Arsenal)
Best Defender: Puyol (Barcelona)
Best Midfielder: Deco (Barcelona)
Best Attacker: Eto (Barcelona)
Best Player: Ronaldinho

ok so fashion wise Eto is the odd man out. Should've worn a white suit.
Club wise Lehmann is out

my 2 cents Lehmann, Puyol and Ronaldhinho deserve it not so sure bout Deco and Eto. Especially Eto where I think Henry deserves it more. In my Opinion Ronaldinho makes Eto look good.

Ronaldo to AC-Milan??

The Gazzetta dello Sport has reported that If Milan manage to win against Red Star Belgrade they'll use the money the receive from qualifying to the Champions League group stage (10 million euros) to finance Ronaldo's move from Real to Ac.

This move might be a good one for Ronaldo, though it would suck for Inter fan's (like me). Well all the best to the phenomenon and hope AC don't kill his talent like they did with Rivaldo.

Your Face in the game!!
















The image you see is made possible by the new xbox 360 "web" cam. It enables the player to have his picture taken and digitally made so that the gamer can use his/her face in games where you can create your own player.


Can you imagine you being a karacther in the next mortal kombat. Sounds sweet.

Below is an image of the "web cam" that a "toy's r us" sold to a lucky person on Aug 18th instead of Sept 19th.
p.s. News taken from Gzmondo.

Arab Joke

The Advantage of Being an ARAB


An old Arab lived close to New York City for more than 40 years.
One day, he decided that he would love to plant potatoes and herbs in his garden, but he knew he was alone and too old and weak.

His son was in college in Paris, so the old man sent him an e-mail
explaining the problem:

"Beloved son, I am very sad, because I can't plant potatoes in my garden.
I am sure, if only you were here, that you would help me and dig up the garden for me. I love you, your father."

-------------------------------

Sure it's funny but the reality is, this is the freedom arabs enjoy in the land of the "free"

The following day, the old man received a response e-mail from his son:

"Beloved father, please don't touch the garden. That is where I have hidden 'the THING.' I love you, too, Ahmed."

At 4pm the FBI and the Rangers visited the house of the old man and took the whole garden apart, searching every inch. But they couldn't find anything. Disappointed, they left the house.

The next day, the old man received another e-mail from his son:

"Beloved father, I hope the garden is dug up by now and you can plant your potatoes. That is all I could do for you from here. Your loving son, Ahmed".

Wii Priced?

Engadgent and IGN both are reporting the Wii's price will be in the range of 170-250 US dollars. Moreover, you won't have to pay a penny to play games online.

Unlike Sony's online service where each game has it own online price or Xbox's live service where you pay $50 per year. However since the Wii isn't out yet it's to early to judge on how the online gaming service would be like.

Details are supposed to be conformed in September, while the launch date is in November till then it's a waiting game.
