WEEKLY SOCCER ROUND UP

FA CUP
This weekend saw rounds from the FA Cup. It was an ok weekend I guess. Just spent relaxing. Apart from the attempted theft of Mamoos Car on Saturday, it was chilled out as can be. He was wearing his MAN UTD top so I assume that had something to do with the break in. But on to the footie.

I started smsing profusely on Saturday at half time. I sms’sd all the Kop owes to say “What the f#4k”. We are in the Perishaans (problems) Here. This is ridiculous. We are 2-1 down against Waterlooville or someone like that. Its like Liverpool playing Remla Stars and losing 2-1 at ANFIELD. Ejaz sent me an article last week. Before we go into detail about the game, Here is who Liverpool were down 2-1 to.

HAVANT & WATERLOOVILLE
By Ejaz Khan

Liverpool fans are widely recognised as some of the most knowledgeable in the world. But few of the 40,000 plus supporters that will arrive at Anfield on Saturday could claim to know much about Havant and Waterlooville.

And we were 2-1 down to these MUGGS. At the end though we triumphed 5-2. Had we lost I think it warraned closing the blog.
I watched the Utd game or at least the first half with all the Dynamos old boys from back in the day. The spurs boy Ahmed Patel included. When Spurs took a shock lead the lads kept on lambasting Ahmed P by saying that how long can you hold out. Eventually Utd equalised. The lads then left.In came Mamoo and we debated the penalty decision in the second half.
It was a penalty. When the lity Ronaldo scored by sending the goalkeeper the one way half an hour before the penalty.Can you do that. That was a retake.
Anyways the big four are all in. Good wins for both Chelsea and Arsenal. It will be good to see what the draw throws in.
SPANISH LA LIGA
I met the Madrid man, Riyad Loonat on Saturday. I said “YOU SMILING NOW”. He said Swoosh, even though we winning its not the Madrid of the past where the scores fluctuated at 3-2,4-3 etc. Well the man got his answer. A Robinho brace and Shneider making it 3-2.To top it all of, Barcelona slipped to a 1-1 draw. Madrid will obviously relish that as they go 9 clear.
SERIE A
Ten men Inter slip, Roma. Milan and Juve all win. Pato scored a brace for Milan. This 18 year old lity continues to be on the talking point in Milan. Something interesting . I had supper at Giovani’s Illova which is a Rossinerri stronghold. Theres a guy Silvio who knows more about Milan than Berlusconi. I walked in there and said Forza Juve ,Always a Bianconero. “Si Si” he said. We ended up chatting. Word is that Milan want Rijkaard at the helm paving the way for Jose at Barca. Rijkard is Milan., they said and We will do anything to have him.
FORZA JUVE
Alex Del Piero and trezegol were on hand to give Juve a 3-0 win at Liverno. Great victory. We needed the 3 points. On a serious note, Buffon is suffering from a serious Back injury. If it persists he could miss EURO 2008. This would be a big blow for the Azurri. On a positive el Piero’s form is second to none and he could very well land a birth in the Azurri set up,come the Euro
