Gan's G.O.N: Football
The first in my weekly rants about the world of football.
Even though I'm a Liverpool supporter, I'll be rambling on each week about the world of football and it's ups and downs so don't worry about me turning this blog into a personal crusade for Liverpool. Although I'm not saying that I won't be a little biassed :)

Before I get onto our performance against Haifa and Sheffield United, a few things caught my eye. The long protracted Ashley Cole saga has picked up pace with the fact that Wenger has made a bid for Gallas. But what was comedy was Arsene's description of the deal. Apparently Wenger said "I like the fact that Gallas is a good defender. He can play right back, left back or centre back". What an amazing piece of insight Arsene, no wonder you unearth such quality (although I think Hleb and Eboue have cancelled out the comedy that was Cygan). You like the fact that he's a good defender?? No sh*t sherlock. Everyone likes players who are good, that's why they're in demand! You're just stating the bleedin obvious but with a French accent. Speaking of which, it got even funnier when he said "We want the player because we made an offer for him. That is clear." So making an offer for a player is an indication of wanting the player to come to your club? Really? I would never have guessed. It's all so much clearer now, thanks a lot, now I understand that when we bid for a player, it's because *we want them*, I was confused before and thought that we made bids for players for fun!

And speaking of the Cole saga, I don't understand how you can continue to show up for training and to keep playing for a club when it's so obvious that you are desperate to leave. That must be a really weird atmosphere / feeling as I suppose there's no such thing as gardening leave in the world of football. Still, if we want to find out we could always ask Jose Reyes who's so desperate to go to Madrid that he keeps pleading with them to come in with an offer for him. Wenger has made another comedy comment when he shattered Reyes' hopes and said "It looks like it will remain a dream. There is no deal with Madrid. His agent flies 2000ft in the air. He must come down to earth." Shame about Jose, another whining uncomitted player, but that's a really neat trick that his agent can do!! He should audition for the Superman Returns sequel, I hear they're looking for a General Zod! (BTW I fully offer my services in that respect).

As for lower league matters, Sunderland lost to Bury in the Carling Cup last night, reminding me of our sterling performance against Burnley in recent years. I really like Niall Quinn, he's very honest and amiable, is top class as a pundit but as a football manager he totally sucks. 5 straight defeats in the league and a loss to Bury? Come on Niall, pass and move, that's the name of the game. Still, at least he's stepping down as manager after the defeat (where he got Buried...sorry, couldn't resist!) and claims that a world class manager will be appointed before Friday that will shock and please the fans. Who is this Niall? I thought Bobby Robson was in for surgery and failing that you've got......ermmm......who exactly? Souness? Ha! You've got no-one Niall, come on, own up, the world class guy you're getting to replace you is probably your other half....Kevin Phillips!

Onto our game last night and after the performance at Sheffield I was a little nervous. But a draw will do me although another game another 2 injuries. I don't think we've had an unluckier start to the season injury wise. It's a good thing that Rafa has a much bigger squad, although getting rid of Traore may seem a little premature now. Ahh, who am I kidding, thank god Djimi left, we even made a profit!! And red card in your first game, unlucky. The thing people need to understand with Rafa and Liverpool is he's the most meticulous man in the world. And he's dealing with footballers. It took him a while to get his ideas across to the team he inherited, but when we did, we went on a great run and ended up 9 points behind Chelski compared to 37 the year before. Now he has some newer blood in again, of course it's going to take them a while to settle, and to understand his systems. Zonal marking isn't perfect but if players do it right, it's statistically proven to be better than man to man. It's Rafa's job to ensure this happens and I trust him implicitly. Haifa really had nothing last night and apart from last minute nerves we should have been 3-0 up at the break. Garcia was unlucky this time, instead of missing the easy chances. I thought Agger played well and Gonzalez showed a physical side that I didn't think he had, although one moment of complacency from the defence led to a goal for them. But they are a quality outfit and champions of Israel. As for Sheffield, I think a draw is a good result. I actually thought we were going to lose as we haven't won at Bramall Lane in 10 years and we haven't won our opening game of the season for 4 years so a draw ain't bad. Neil Warnock's side always proves to be a bit of a bogey team for us and we've met before in cup competitions over the last few years and not had a pleasant time. We did dominate large parts of the second half but surprisingly stepped off once we got the goal. We should have pressed on to win, but they were always going to be hard to beat at home.

Watford, on the other hand, look really solid. They were extremely unlucky to lose to Everton at the weekend due to a deflected shot and the dodgiest penalty decision I've seen in my life (no, I'm not counting Gerrard's penalty against Sheffield). They also should have come away with all 3 points against West Ham by all accounts. I fancy them to be the next Wigan and Sheffield United to be the next West Ham. That would mean someone else is going to have to go down, and after Reading's unbeleivable comeback I reckon it will be Boro. I'm not sure Southgate has what it takes and if he doesn't keep hold of Downing, then he's looking pretty thin on the ground.

I think that's it for this week, just one more thing, Owen Hargreaves is holding a press conference about how much he wants to go to United and Bayern won't let him, so here's my message to Sir Alex. Give up!! You won't get him as you forget who you're dealing with! A man with 3 names, the inimitable Karl Heinz Rumennigge!!!

Take care folks!!

Gan.

Football clubs

Football clubs look for the best players of that season and try to get them into their team before other pull them into their teams according to a research from best essays articles. This game is all depend upon the rich clubs who has money will try to get best players by showing their money and buying them to play for their club. Only some clubs rule UEFA every time.
