HEROES ARE REMEMBERED,LEGENDS NEVER DIE
This Week Il focus on perhaps the most important position of them all. Now Im going to break this position up into two positions. The Breaking Midfielder and the attacking Centre Midfielder. This week we will showcase some of the games most effective breakers and midfield stoppers that we have come to know. Obviously the first two names that come to mind are Gatusso and Roy Keane. Now this position is refered to as the working position. It is underated, never mentioned, and it is the men that fill this position that pave the way for the other players to do their thing or showboat if you like. They are everywhere, defending with the centre backs and attacking with the strikers. They require a temprement that no one else possesses.They are fit and give 300% all the time. In simple terms They die for their teams and they die on the pitch.
In this mould I will pick a guy like Roy Keane anytime. The former MANC Captain gave his heart on the pitch. He took no nonsense from opposition and fellow teammates. How could we forget those duals with Viera. Keane was a warrior and midfielder of note. Often driving his team forward and perhaps using his unorthordox style of motivation.
Then of course we have Gatusso who needs no write up. Just looking at him tells you that you dont want to bump into a man like this in an alley. Gatusso will be Gatusso. How could we forget Makalele who exposed Madrid when he left. Makalele was renouned for doing the Dirty Work whilst the maestros wore their tuxedos and came out to play. The Guvnor Paul Ince was also a man that gave 300%. Toiling in midfield all the time and getting nicknamed the Guvnor
If we look at the past names like Italian hard men Ancelotti and Claudio Gentile come to mind. From a Liverpool perspective how can we not forget our hard man Steve Macmahon. What a player in that successful decade. Patrick Viera for Arsenal was like no other. Made it look simple. Really Viera made it look simple. Im sure I forgot a host of other names that deserve a mention so Il wait for the comments.
I want you guys to see this video below, Its about a conversation between keane and Viera in the Tunnel. Viera says to Keane just smile…… Keane says Id be smiling if we were ten points clear,which we not. Typical Keane
And Below is a video with the Keane,Viera bust up in the tunnel. Unbelievable. A MUST SEE, AND EPITOMISES JUST HOW INTIMIDATING ROY KEANE WAS
But enuff bragging for now hold da shipment stop the boat wait for it…
MANU WILL BE TOURING SOUTH AFIRCA IN JULY –> BRILLIANT !!!
The club officially confirmed the tour in the past week, & what makes it better is since the poms didn’t qualify for Euro 2008 we will see the likes of Rooney, Ferdinand, Hargreaves Carrick maybe Neville. SUPERB
Angolan striker Manucho Goncalves has been signed by United after impressing in a trial at OT. The club has signed the tall Angolan on a 3 year contract. The oke will be doing duty for Angola in the nations Cup tournament so keep an eye out for this dudes potential. Good to see at least one African at OT.
Bigwigs at the club have hinted their wont be any major transfer activity in January but it seems we have a striker on the cards. Klaas Huntelaar of Ajax has impressed in the dutch league & on the international stage Rumour has it a 12Million pound bid will be launched for the 24 year to the financially distressed Ajax Amsterdam. Another name that has popped up is 22 year old Karim Benzema who has been prolific for Lyon.
On the downside the injury prone Saha will be out for another 3 weeks after damaging his knee in training, I would’nt be surprised at a swap deal involving the French men.
Last Game vs Newcastle BLITZED
From the evidence of the first half it looked like this one was going to be another frustrating draw. Ron the Dons genius opened the flood gates in the second half. He was simply outstanding. Tactically what impresses about Uniteds attacking play is that any one can take up a striking position. If the ball comes in from the left, right sided players including defenders attack the six yard area, likewise when the ball comes in from the right. Evidence of this was Simpson almost netting a brace & Ferdinand capitalizing on a visionary dead ball played across to the right by Rooney. However the unsung heroes of the day had to be Anderson & Carrick they controlled the midfield uncompromisingly for long periodsas United were relentless on the attack. The link up play can only be described as calypso football. Giggsy’s back heel to Rooney from the 18yard area who finished the move with an attempted chip over Given was just pure
samba soccer. I’m sure the fans will capitalize on making a video out of this one just as the geordies did when they whipped us by 5 goals back in the nineties. Six nill was justice served.
That’s 22 goals for Ron The DON already this season. Looks like Fergies lost the head shave bet…
Next Game vs Reading
If the Gooners end up lasting the distance goal difference might well come into play. Nothing but a good whipping here will suffice.
Well, it’s a joke. It has to be. Tom Hicks can’t be that stupid, can he? Maybe all that time spent with George Bush has affected his brain somehow. And what of his “silent” partner , George Gillet, who seems to be enjoying the idiotic show his friend dishes out to bamboozled fans. Tom and Jerry, as they have come to be known, have a lot in common with their cartoon namesakes, making people laugh all the time. But its sick laughter, and fans are left asking, are these guys for real ?
The team has been performing absolutely shockingly of recent. I kept asking myself, do they know something we don’t ? Is what they know so heinous, that it could affect the players on the pitch. Now picture this. Fernando Torres struggling to find space against Inter Milan, looks up to the technical area for instructions from Rafa for a quick tip, but instead, there stands the new guy, the man that the Yanks felt was the right guy for the job, Jurgen Klinsmann. “Dive, like I used to” is the retort.
Not a pretty picture. But it could all have been a sad reality. It is dramatically ironic that Jurgen Klinsmann owns an agency called Soccer Solutions. One can almost picture Tom and Jerry shouting for the limousine driver to stop after seeing the sign in Los Angeles “maybe he can help us understand saaker better, so the next time Gerrard scores a 20 yard touchdown, we will understand the concept better.” Yes,Tom quips Gillet ”and when the Champions League play-offs start next month, we will be there when that Mexican youngster Torres scores the crack in, Rick Parry will be so proud of us”
Reports have emerged that DIC are back in the bidding. Good thing too, as clearly the American Duo have lied their way to Anfield. They lied about providing the best for the team, for the Manager, for the Fans. DIC, with Reds fan CEO Sameer Al Ansari will be the ones to take the club to the heights the fans will have hoped would have started to materialize by now. Mr Ansari, already alluding to the fact that if DIC were in charge, building of the new Stadium would have commenced already. With Dubai’s speedily growing skyline a phenomenal prove on its own, its not hard to believe. Instead Reds Fans wait with baited breath as Anfield witnesses what has been a dreamy year or so. Well its time to wake up, before all is lost. DIC, for Liverpool fans,could well stand for Do It Correctly
