From another angle:

Chelsea’s new man Fernando Torres sweet gesture to his former captain Steven Gerrard may not be enough to endear himself back to me, but it’s definitely a small step. Thank goodness I cannot hear the incessant chants on Sunday’s Chelsea-Liverpool game because when I’ve read what it’s all about, my sympathies are with Torres. But the fans are so witty because the chants were double-edged…

His wallet proves he is a Blue,
Torres
He scored some goals but
never was a Red, Torres
We bought the lad from
sunny Spain
He left to be a Roman’s slave
Fernando Trait….errrrr, sorry,
forgot his name

And here’s another one:

Carra’s gonna break your leg!
Torres, Torres
Stevie ’s gonna break your
neck! Torres, Torres
You dirty little fcukin rat,
You ’re dead to us you cheeky
twa.t!
Fernando Torres, John Terry
will shag your wife!

one more…

He said that he was a red
TORRES TORRES
But now his wife is with JT in
bed TORRES
He wont win a euro cup
his medal cabinet is full of
dust
Fernando Torres is a dirty
munt.

Football Writer’s Association has bestowed the honor of Footballer of the Year award to Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard. I may like Cristiano Ronaldo a lot but I’m a staunch Liverpool fan and I am proud of the honor given to Stevie G.

The FWA Footballer of the Year is an annual award given to the players who is adjudged to have been the best of the season in English football. The winner is selected by a vote amongst the 400 football journalist members based throughout England. And this year’s poll sees Steven Gerrard edging out the likes of Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney of Manchester United. He has been exceptional this year and Steven Bates, FWA Chairman was quoted saying that Gerrard  “performance this season has been of the highest quality. He is in his prime and quite rightly rated one of the finest midfield player of this generation.”

Gerrard, the first Liverpool player since John Barnes, who won in 1990 to receive such accolade will  receive his award at the FWA’s gala dinner at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London on May 29, a day before his birthday.

I’m obsessed with football and i always think that I live in the wrong continent. I should have been in Europe so that i won’t have to sleep late always if there’s a fixture going on… Yeah i wish. I hope my two imaginary boyfriends, Iker Casillas and Cristiano Ronaldo would hear my fervent wish and whisk me away from here to live in a place near them or better yet in their home. Anyhoo, if  i’m as rich as Roman Abramovich or Silvio Berlusconi and i have the means to own a football team and i am allowed to have unlimited access to players, the following are the players i want in my team. And yes, being good-looking is one of the requirements. Indulge me.

casillas_glove_3 Goalkeeper: Iker Casillas (Real Madrid) – He is definitely a keeper. As a captain for Spain, he has led the team in capturing its first European Championship in 44 years! For me he is the world’s best goalkeeper and FIFA seemed to agree with me as he is currently ranked 4th in the 2008 FIFA World Player of the Year Award.

Defenders:

xabi_alonso_280x390_500401a Xabi Alonso (Liverpool) – A memberof my favorite team, he comes from a family of footballing prowess. His ability to pass the ball in an exhibitionist way is one of the thing i like about him. He could spot a teammate even from afar and could pass over the ball with deadly and uncanny accuracy. A member of Spain international, his highest honor to date is winning the Euro 2008 Cup.

philiplahm Philip Lahm (Bayern Munich) – a defender both for his team and country, Lahm is the bestt fullback i know and i like the way he paced, dribbled and crossed in the field despite his small stature. He could run the ball both from right and left flank. He is simply the best.

garics_scheda Gyorgy Garics – (Atalanta) I saw him while he was still playing for Napoli in the Serie A against Inter and  he was good as an attacking wingback and the years to come will be good for him as evidenced by the fact that he was called up for the Vienna national team.

grossoooo Fabio Grosso (Lyon) – Who could ever forget this hunky Italian? Remember World Cup 2006? Yeah, i know. I was rooting for Germany back then after England was… never mind, i would rather forget that whole episode. But Fabio, I could never hate him after one look at his face and even if he delivered that late dramatic winning goal against Germany in the semi final i changed allegiance so fast during the final that i completely forgot i love Zizou.  And Fabio never disappointed me as he scored the winning penalty in the shootout that win Italy their trophy.

Midfielder:

steven-gerrard1 Steven Gerrard (Liverpool) – A member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE), Stevie G is the man i would like to captain England in their quest to get the World Cup trophy. He is a one-man goal scoring machine and though i like seeing him played as a center midfielder, i know he could play best as a striker. And he is ever so sweet, he has inscribed his daughters name in his football boots and i heard that its his lucky pair.

7 Yoann Gourcuff (Bordeaux) – I saw him play for AC Milan once alongside Kaka but the moment I noticed him was when he was playing in the France national team and since then i followed his career when he was loaned to Bordeaux and I’m proud to say that AC Milan lost was Bordeaux gain. I am positive to say that this Girondins will be the next Zizou.

sebastian_kehl Sebastian Kehl (B. Dortmund) – He was my big time crush in the World Cup 2006. I love the way he passed the ball and the way he tackled his opponent and he was a key player and he’s proven this especially when he was made captain for his team Borussia Dortmund. And no i will not mentioned the “clothing malfunction” that made him so famous around the world…

cristiano_ronaldo_493242a Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United) – Currently the world’s best player. His ability to dribble the ball and crossing is one the best thing i admired about him and of course his goal scoring. For me he is the definition of sexy football. I just dont like it when he dives, and he really does it a lot. He is one serial diver.

Striker:

5915684 Fernando Torres (Liverpool) – El Nino. I always wondered why he was overlooked by the biggest team in Spain. But then La Liga’s lost is the Premier League’s gain. Liverpool’s bonafide superstar next to Steven Gerrard, Nando given precious time barring injury will make Cristiano Ronaldo trembled in his football boots in the years to come. And CR7 should take this is a warning as according to the survey, Nando is the best loved Premier League player while he was the most hated.

lionelmessiitv_767129 Lionel Messi (Barcelona) – I am saving this best for last. Lionel Messi will be undoubtedly this year best player of the world. And i would so dearly love to see him play for the Premier League but then he fit so nicely with Barcelona that its a joy to watch La Liga again.    For me he is the only one to succeed Diego Maradona even if Atletico’s Sergio Aguero could rival him for this title, never mind that Aguero is Maradona’s son-in-law. I love the way he run across the field evading six opponents and then scoring a goal. He always does that and its never tiresome to watch it. Look out Cristiano the Messidona is out to get you.

My favorite Liverpool striker Fernando Torres is set to marry his childhood sweetheart Olalla Dominguez and that the couple is expecting their first child. Actually, we’ve been waiting for this event to happen ever since we’ve seen this cute couple and finally it’s here. It is said that Nando plans to keep the event low key and that the wedding will take place in Santiago Compostela in Northern Spain. Liverpool teammates, Steven Gerrard and Pepe Reina to name a few, are expected to attend and I guess all his sexy and hottie Spain international mates.

Nando and Olalla has been an item for eight years and they were living together in Madrid before they moved to UK. The two have met during those summer spent at the seaside town of Estorde, Galicia, North West Spain where both family visited for summer vacations. Olalla is not your ordinary WAG as she has studied economics and is said to be working in PR firm. Nando has only good things to say for his intended bride: “She knows how to calm me down when I haven’t been able to see the way out of the tunnel or wake me up when I’ve been sleeping. She pushes me when I needed to be encouraged. The person that lives with you is sometimes the only one capable of helping you up when you don’t realize how down you are.”

Oh, isn’t he sweet? And another manifestation of his sweetness, Nando has the Roman numerals VII-VII-MMI tattoed on his left leg to mark their first kiss on July 7, 2001. Sorry girls it looks like our Liverpool ace is so keen to his future bride.

I am honored to say that I watched two of the historical games of Premier League last Saturday and I’m in awe, seriously. Sunderland has finally, FINALLY beat their arch-rival Newcastle United at home for the FIRST TIME in 28 YEARS.  And the Stan Cummins curse has been lifted. Sunderland hit man Michael Chopra who used to be a Newcastle said:  “It’s been 28 years since Sunderland beat Newcastle on Wearside and if ever there is a time to beat Newcastle, the time is now because of everything that has been going on up there.” Seriously Keano’s Sunderland is a different club right now. Imagine this is also the team that had not won at Tottenham for 30 years until August.

On the other hand, Liverpool ended Chelsea’s 4 year unbeaten home run. It was an exciting game and a nail-biting one and when  Alonso struck in the ninth minute when his 20-yard shot deflected off Jose Bosingwa and left Petr Cech wrong-footed and voila, GOAL! I was jumping up and down by then and my mother scolded me saying I am not at Stamford to wildly cheer like that, her words not mine. It was Chelsea’s first defeat under Scolari but Liverpool were always in charge of a pulsating contest at Stamford Bridge and look real title contenders on this form. But Steven Gerrard served a reminder that Liverpool had achieved nothing yet. “To win this league and become champions you have to handle the pressure of being at the top,” he said. “That’s the challenge now.” Ooh. Ease up Stevie; I have a real good feeling at this one. Go, Liverpool.
