Football / Deco and Ronnie possible move to Chelsea
« on: June 17, 2008, 10:10:02 AM »
we all know with Felipao coming to Chelsea now as coach that  ;Dtheir sugestions of players he coached before joinging him...i saw this on setanta that Deco was encouraging ronnie to move to chelsea maybe because he is going there too??

Deco tells Ronnie to join Blues
by Alex Livie, 17 June 2008

Deco has urged his Barcelona team-mate Ronaldinho to snub Manchester City in favour of a move to Chelsea.

New Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has been linked with a host of new faces, as he embarks on bringing a swagger to The Blues’ step.

Deco is believed to be close to a move to Stamford Bridge and he is keen for some Samba style to be added to the West London ranks.

City are battling to bring Ronaldinho to Eastlands, but Deco feels he would be better served heading to the capital.

"It would be good for Chelsea to sign Ronaldinho,” Deco is quoted as saying in The Sun.

“He would go to a great club and I would love to see him playing in the Champions League for a great team, and showing he is still the best player in the world.”

Deco is expected to clarify his future after Euro 2008 and he does not expect the boardroom unrest surrounding the position of president Joan Laporta to hinder the negotiation process.

He added: “I don’t see why it would be bad for negotiations because even though I’ve not spoken to Laporta, he’s still the president

Football / Need some advice
« on: September 28, 2007, 09:44:29 AM »
yea fellas well a sad bump in my career....i was injured in a 1v1 collision with a goalie in a game for my school .....my knee hyperextended and well the prediagnosis from the doctor is that i tore my ACL,PCL and my Meniscus....

its weird because i can still walk and stuf but sometimes i have pain in my knee ...as opposed to just a constant pain that prevents me from walking...althuough i was explained to that this is normal.....

there are now 2 courses of action after the mri...surgery...or self rehab
i am in school though and i was advised that if i did get the surgery i would have a long lay up and thus my school work could suffer....i am not willing to lose a year of school though

so i was also told tht u could self rehab and let it heal ...it would take roughly over 6 months but i would still be able to continue school life.

so i was hoping you great minds with insight into this subject could aid me with your knowledge

thanks again and dont worry i have a strong will so as depressing as this injury has been to me it isnt the end of my journey


BTW i play for John Jay College of Criminal Justice in the CUNYAC conference of the NCAA DIV 3

Football / Worst day of my career
« on: May 28, 2007, 11:01:14 AM »
Some may find that this is a stupid post but then again ...this is ah forum for Trinis to share in we joy and hardships in the beautiful game no matter what age level .

So this is my last year at Youth Level footbal under 19. I have had some opportunities and many unlucky breaks in my young career. Ranging from the chance to go to tryout for the Under20 national team and chances to play a high level of NCAA football.....to lows like simple and plain inconveniences to prevent me from paraking in other events.

 I have had the euphoria of two invitations to tryout with mexican lower league teams most notably club Tijuana of the FIrst Division A ... and i even have a chance to join the Brooklyn Knights Super Y league team.

Modestly i now play with F.C Vipers of the CJSL here in New York ...we have developed from a team mixed with primadonnas and incapable players....to a team still with few incapable players yet their faults are hidden because of the chemistry we have developed.

This weekend we had our first (my last) taste at state glory and recognition.....and with class we put away our opponents a much bigger  in stature sized team from Long Island 6-0....i only palyed 45 minutes due to a slight knock but from my CM role i recorded two assits and a goal on the day.

Advancing to the Quaterfinals we received the news that in our region we were the ONLY team to win in that manner and were viewed by many as the favourites even though this was our first shot at the cup.

The usual favorites and 4 time state cup champs Blau Weiss Gotsschee (whom im sure u guys have seen on FSC)  were knocked out first round (not sure if this was true but those were the reports)....

With the way the cup was orgainzed our win on saturday meant we had to play the very next day in Long Island.....of course we were given no favors by the team we were supposed to play ( a team we outclassed in a previous tournament) and the game was put at 1230 the next morning.

Since you have to be there at 1130....and on a memorial weekend with traffic and people heading to the beach the usual quick hour journey was estimated at 2hrs. this means we had to leave NYC at 930....we left at 9

halfway there around 1015 D Van broke down and we were forced to wait an 1hr 15 mins till the replacement van could arrive.

so now its 1230 and we are 20 mins away from the game and the next team coach says we only have the 15 min grace period before we officialy forfeit even though we explained to him our plight (granted its none of his concern)

so speeding down ....less than 5 mins from d field d coach calls us back to officialy disqualify us form the STATE CUP.....a cup we WOULD HAVE won....and probably one of the last chacnes i have at recognition here in New York at Youth level.

we put in a protest and were waiting on the result...but that has to be one of the hardest days to deal with in my footbal career

Well Chelsea have snapped up Steve Sidwell on a free from reading..beating out Man U and a host of other clubs.

Bayern have joined the chase with Chelsea and Atletico Madrid to try an dget Quaresma
the bavarian giants have also been rumored to be on teh brink of getting Luca TOni for 18 million (only hinderance now is that Toni only ever wanted to leave fiorentina for Champs League football and bayern missed out on this )

Man U very well may be getting hargreaves after it is rumored that ze roberto will return to bayern to fill the gap once he leaves


Liverpool already have ANdriy VOroin coming in from Bayern Leverkusen..the ukranian moves on a free which could signal the end of Bellamy career at anfield with blackburn eager to get him back on the books.


Just put up some of these here from what i have read from links online like soccernet and yahoo soccer.....any other rumored info ??

I heard Inter Pres Massimo Moratti is ready to put in a bid for Tevez and offload Cruz and Recoba.....especially with the news that Chelsea may take back Crespo to avoid a shortage of strikers if Kalou and Drogba play for Ivory Coast in teh Coupe D'Afrique

Football / Chelsea vs Liverpool the 2nd leg CL semis
« on: April 30, 2007, 08:49:30 PM »
so we finally within hours and as usual at the pre match conference the banter continued.....

Benitez reall pushing to put prreall want pressure on chelsea coming wit d same ole talk bout thy realli want to win d CL and even saying dat if u ask roman which one he want he go tell yuh d CL..said dat chelsea scared of anfield

Mourinho state dat he going to anfield to scare them...saying you cant defend perfect for 90 minutes so his aim is to attack.....he accepted the home field advantage but said now that he wants to win at anfield and not just scrape through....he wants them to score goals.....he said d side was a bit on d wearside with ferriera playing CB last time at anfield and with no carvalho once again he believe he team will get it done.....he called beintez "intelligent" if he played the long ball into crouch tactic

Personal view is that Liverpool need sisoko in that midfield play to be the destroyer because mascherano can be passed as well as xabi and thy may give up fouls in dangerous position....momo only prob is he is a liability helping the attack.....Crouch will look to cause problems...but i cannot envisage much of a problem.....its bellamy or kuijt i am more worried about......as always gerrard will be the driving force and their long shot ability will be something to watch at home


Chelsea now have mike essien back and not one man can deny that chelsea is a different team with him in it.....something about what he brings to the team....if chelsea win the midfield battle then they should be smooth sailing but no game ever realli is smooth....kalou ...swp..and cole will be the heroes with pool prolly expected to pay close attention to drogba.....


maybe as a chelsea fan i can only ever look for one team to go through but as a football fanatic i look forward to a electric game.

Chelsea rout West Ham to stay on United's heels
 
LONDON, April 18 (Reuters) - Two spectacular goals from England winger Shaun Wright-Phillips kept Chelsea firmly on Manchester United's heels after a 4-1 win over West Ham United at Upton Park on Wednesday. Victory lifted Jose Mourinho's side, winners of the last two titles, back to within three points of leaders Manchester United with five matches remaining.

Wright-Phillips struck twice in a hectic five-minute spell in the first half during which Argentine Carlos Tevez also netted for the home side. Goals after the break from Salomon Kalou and compatriot Didier Drogba confirmed the vast gulf in class between the sides.

Relegation is looming large for West Ham who are five points adrift of Sheffield United who sit one place above the drop zone.

England midfielder Steven Gerrard scored twice as Liverpool regained third place from Arsenal with a 2-0 win over Middlesbrough at Anfield while Blackburn Rovers overcame bottom side Watford 3-1 at Ewood Park.

First the man get over bak surgery in a week now a twisted ankle in a matter of days

Chelsea captain Terry fit after all for League Cup final
 
LONDON, Feb 24 (Reuters) - Chelsea captain John Terry will after all play in Sunday's League Cup final against Arsenal after recovering from an ankle injury, the Premier League champions said on Saturday.

Centre back Terry hobbled off in Wednesday's Champions League match at Porto and was later seen using crutches.

The England captain's recovery has surprised the club's medical staff, who had previously told manager Jose Mourinho that he would not be available until next week.

ADVERTISEMENT
 
 
"Today John felt a big improvment in his ankle and requested that the medical department performed a fitness test. On passing this test he was put into a full training session and was able to train fully," club doctor Bryan English told the club Web site (www.chelseafc.com).

"This rate of recovery has surprised the medical department. I have apologised to Jose for providing him with misleading information."

Chelsea, second in the league behind Manchester United, have struggled with injuries this season and Terry's presence will give them a big boost against London rivals Arsenal.

Chelsea swoop for Dutch defender Boulahrouz
Chelsea swoop for Dutch defender Boulahrouz
 
AFP
August 18, 2006
LONDON (AFP) - English champions Chelsea bolstered their defence on the eve of the Premiership season when they bought Dutch international Khalid Boulahrouz from Hamburg.

Boulahrouz, who can play centre-back or left-back, was known as "Khalid the Cannibal" by Hamburg fans in honour of his aggressive tackling style.

The 25-year-old, for whom coach Jose Mourinho has paid an undisclosed fee, will be in London this weekend to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms.

ADVERTISEMENT
 
 
"Chelsea Football Club have agreed an undisclosed fee with Hamburg SV for the transfer of Khalid Boulahrouz," said a statement on the club website.

"The Dutch international defender will be travelling to London over the weekend to discuss personal terms and to have a medical."

Chelsea's assistant manager Steve Clarke told Chelsea TV: "He is a good competitive player and will be a good addition to our squad.

"He can play centre-back or full-back. I think he is right-footed and it is important to have one or two players around the squad who can play in a number of different positions."

Mourinho is short of defenders.

Asier del Horno left for Valencia, Glen Johnson is out on loan, William Gallas wants to quit Stamford Bridge while the pursuit of Arsenal's England defender Ashley Cole has ground to a halt.

Boulahrouz started his career in Holland with RKC Waalwijk and he moved to Hamburg two years ago and helped Hamburg finish third last season.

He was part of Marco van Basten's World Cup squad but his tournament ended on a low note when he was one of three players sent off in the stormy last 16 defeat by Portugal.

Boulahrouz is the second high-profile departure from Hamburg after Belgian international defender Daniel van Buyten left for German champions Bayern Munich for over ten million euros in the summer.

Football / Diarra to join Madrid
« on: August 18, 2006, 06:27:14 PM »
Lyon agree to let Diarra join Real Madrid
Lyon agree to let Diarra join Real Madrid
 
(Adds quotes from Calderon and Capello)

LYON, Aug 18 (Reuters) - Olympique Lyon have agreed to let Mali midfielder Mahamadou Diarra join Real Madrid, the five-times French champions said on Friday.

The clubs have agreed an undisclosed fee and Diarra will move providing he agrees personal terms, said a Lyon spokesman.

ADVERTISEMENT
 
 
Diarra is expected in Madrid at the weekend to sort out the final details.

Real president Ramon Calderon confirmed to Spain's Radio Marca that his club had agreed to buy the 25-year-old.

"It's true," he said. "We've been working on this deal for some time at the express request of our coach (Fabio Capello)."

Capello added he was delighted with the signing.

"He is a very strong player and was our number one priority," he told a news conference after his side's defeat against Real Betis in a pre-season tournament in Cadiz.

Marca said Real would pay 26 million euros ($33.37 million) for the holding midfielder, who joined Lyon in 2002 from Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem and won the last four Ligue 1 titles with the club.

Diarra was quoted as saying in French sports daily L'Equipe on Wednesday that he wanted to join Real and was prepared to consider going on strike to force the deal through.

"An offer from a club like Real Madrid happens once in your career," he said.

If the deal goes through, Diarra will become the fourth player to join the club since Calderon was elected president last month.

The nine-times European champions have also signed Italy's World Cup-winning captain Fabio Cannavaro and Brazil midfielder Emerson from Juventus and Dutch striker Ruud van Nistelrooy from Manchester United, spending a combined 35 million euros on the trio.

Real, who have not won a major trophy since 2003, are also interested in Arsenal forward Jose Antonio Reyes.

"We can still sign more players and I think we will do so before the transfer deadline expires," Calderon said on Friday.

Football / Madrid striker has high hopes for new season
« on: August 12, 2006, 11:48:54 AM »
Capello will bring out the best in me, says Cassano
 
MADRID, Aug 12 (Reuters) - Italian striker Antonio Cassano believes the appointment of Fabio Capello as Real Madrid coach will give him the chance to show his true worth at the Primera Liga club.

"Capello knows me well and he knows what I'm capable of," Cassano told Spanish sports daily Marca on Saturday. "I'm certain that he will lead us to great achievements because he is the best.

"Capello is a coach that motivates the team a lot and the team is much more united than last season. We also have a more complete squad with (Fabio) Cannavaro, Emerson and (Ruud) van Nistelrooy."


 
Cassano joined Real midway through last season from AS Roma but arrived out of condition and was given few chances by then coach Juan Ramon Lopez Caro.

He was in the starting line-up for just three Primera Liga matches and scored one goal as he spent most of his first season at the club on the bench and missed out on selection for the Italian World Cup squad.

Cassano played under Capello at AS Roma between 2001 and 2004 and although the two clashed on several occasions, the Italian coach brought the best out of the young striker on the pitch.

"Yes, we've had our problems. It's a bit like a father and a son," said the 24-year-old, who has been Real's top scorer in their pre-season friendlies.

"He understands me. We fought but it was all sorted out in two minutes. He knows that I'm impetuous and if I'm not happy I tell people to their face.

Cassano said he wanted to help Real end their three-season trophy drought, but that his ultimate aim was to continue his playing career in Italy.

"I want to win trophies with Real Madrid and form part of the history of the most important club in the world. Then after two or three years I will go back to Italy."

Football / Gallas wants to be a Gunner
« on: August 06, 2006, 09:14:30 AM »
Well look for the gentlemen discussion they had involving cole to escalate now....can someone say bargaing chip




Gallas wants to be a Gunner

 
AFP
August 6, 2006
LONDON (AFP) - France international central defender William Gallas's relations with Premiership champions Chelsea deteriorated further when his agent revealed he would like to move to Arsenal.

Pierre Frelot told the News of the World Sunday that Gallas was determined to leave despite being offered a new four year contract of 80,000 pounds a week.

The 28-year-old - a six million pounds signing from Marseille five years ago - has been keen to leave since May because he does not like playing at fullback, instead of his preferred central defensive role in which he excelled at the World Cup where France reached the final and lost to Italy in a penalty shootout.

 
 
"William has decided to leave," Frelot said.

"Arsenal are interested and we have to find an agreement with Chelsea, even if I know they will do everything to keep him.

"Chelsea have made us a very good offer to sign a new contract but William would like to go and we will see what happens.

"However, I don't know if Chelsea will agree to sell him to one of their greatest rivals."

Should Chelsea give way and let Gallas, who has played over 200 times for Chelsea and was pivotal in their two title wins, go he could be used as part of a deal with Arsenal over their England international right back Ashley Cole, who has been a long time target of the Blues manager Jose Mourinho.

Gallas, who has also been linked with Italian giants AC Milan, provoked a wider rift earlier this week when he failed to arrive on time for their tour of the United States and was told not to bother turning up atall.

Mourinho has condemned the player's "lack of respect" and stripped him of his number 13 shirt, giving it to newcomer Michael Ballack, who had originally been give the No 19 shirt.

Speaking in Los Angeles last Wednesday, Mourinho said the whole team were upset at Gallas's actions.

"Everybody is upset because we had a strong family and a strong group and this has shown a lack of respect to everybody and I don't like that," he said.

Magath offered Puerto Rico post

 
AFP
August 6, 2006
MUNICH, Germany (AFP) - Bayern Munich coach Felix Magath has revealed that Puerto Rico had approached him about becoming the country's team director in the build-up to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

"I have an offer from Puerto Rico," Magath told Focus magazine Sunday. "The president of the Puerto Rico Football Federation asked me whether I could work as team director in the build-up to the 2010 World Cup."

The 53-year-old Magath, whose father was born in Puerto Rico and currently lives there, admits the post is tempting and said he would make a decision within the next month.

ADVERTISEMENT
 
 
Magath is contracted with Bayern until June 2008 and said he had informed the German champions of the offer.

If Magath, a 1983 European Cup winner with SV Hamburg, chooses to accept the post it means he is likely to leave Bayern when his contract expires in 2008 as Puerto Rico's qualification campaign begins that summer.

Magath took over as Bayern coach two seasons ago and guided the club to back to back league and cup doubles in his first two years at the helm.

Well first off i must commend the plans that Wm THE WHIP rijsbern has in place and i actually fel confident about the under 16's and their possible good showing

however at the end of august there will be screening for the under 20 national team with a view for the fifa under 20 championships in canada.....another comendation with the screening efforts TO A CERTAIN EXTENT


My issues is this....it is no secret i am trying to get onto the team and i have been in diligent training and such with at least 2 diferent clubs all with a view at keeping fit and sharpening my skills....furthermore i am also beingin pre season training wiht JOHN JAY COLLEGE OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE in the CUNYAC (NCAA DIV 3) so truthfully i spend more time with a football than i do wiht my family or anyone else for that matter.....

however after establishing contact with the TTFF wiht the aim to be present at the screening i must admit like anyoyne who finds out there is still hope for your chance at  playing for trinidad at any level or sport i was filled with optimism...wont lie it actually even saw me increase my already large trainig schedule......which leads my mother and some to believe that i am studying football more than books.....

It was then it hit  me.....If we want the under 20 team to be the best it can be then why host screening so late if the info about the tournament was out long before.....the excuse form teh TTFF is that they want to get the under 16 ready...my statement is what does that have to do with this?????

Fact of the matter is that those of us who play abroad or in colleges see the beinging of their academic schedule start around the end of august....which is around the time they plan to beign screening....it would be disasterous to leave my school and academics along as jeopardise my place in teh college team all for screening.....yes it does sound like something that would be worth it somewhat but if a person does not make it in football then what would he have to fall back on????

so the dillemma for those like myself is either you risk academics for a chacne at a dream with your country or you give up a dream....

risks: what happens if your not selected you miss the beginig of your semester and you are drastically behind in your studies

if you do make the squad then kiss the semester and the money paid for it by your parents GOOD BYE


what would you forumites do or sugest???  FLEX???? TALL MAN ????  anyone??

Real Madrid sign Dutch striker Van Nistelrooy
 
(adds details)

MADRID, July 27 (Reuters) - Dutch striker Ruud van Nistelrooy will join Real Madrid from Manchester United on a three-year contract, the Primera Liga club said on Thursday.

The deal is reported to be worth around 15 million euros ($19.12 million) for the 30-year-old striker, who scored 150 goals in 219 appearances since joining United for a then British record fee of 19 million pounds ($35.39 million) in 2001.

He is Real's third signing this week following on from Italy defender Fabio Cannavaro and Brazil midfielder Emerson, and will link up with former Manchester United team mate David Beckham at the Bernabeu.

Van Nistelrooy put in a transfer request two weeks ago and both Real and Bayern Munich have been competing to secure his services for next season.

 http://sports.yahoo.com/sow/news?slug=afp-fblengprespgerrealbayernvann&prov=afp&type=lgns

Van Nistelrooy saga takes new twist
 
AFP
July 27, 2006
PARIS (AFP) - Ruud Nistelrooy's expected transfer from Manchester United has taken a new twist with reports about how the negotiations are going contradicting each other.

According to AS newspaper in Spain, Real are about to seal the transfer of the Dutch striker for 15 million euros, whereas Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson told MUTV that they would not budge from the 15 million-pound (21.9m-euro) asking price.

AS newspaper wrote: "Real Madrid have sealed the purchase of Ruud Van Nistelrooy. The club will pay 15 million euros for the player who will be presented tomorrow (Friday) at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium."


 
 
Real Madrid made an improved offer of 10.3m pounds on Wednesday and Bayern Munich are also in the running.

However Ferguson told MUTV: "We know our value. If we are going to sell Ruud we should get the proper value. He is one of the best strikers in the country, one of the best strikers in Europe, so when you think about Andriy Shevchenko going for 35 million - he is a similar age group.

"We know the value of the player so at the moment he is a Manchester United player."

Real's new offer is believed to be a straight cash deal and Ferguson added: "I read it on teletext and I spoke to chief executive David Gill and nothing has really materially changed.

"They have slightly increased it but it is nothing really. An increase of about two bob or something. We know the value of the player so at the moment he is a Manchester United player."

Meanwhile England's Sun newspaper claimed Tottenham manager Martin Jol wants to do a swap deal with van Nistelrooy coming to White Hart Lane and Michael Carrick going to United.
 


ONE THING FOR SURE ITS 50/50 OF HIM GOING AWAY FORM UNITED THIS SEAOSN ...SO WHO WILL FERGIE USE AS HE LIKES 4 STRIKERS...rossi solsjkaer rooney saha.....hardly anything liek the strength he  likes

Football / why glen should NOT START
« on: June 16, 2006, 12:18:05 PM »
i hearing everbody saying oh let glen start and such........GRANTED HE HAS PLAYED HISSELF AMONGST THE BEST PEROFRMERS FOR US AT THE WORLD CUP THUS FAR.....BUT understand the tactical decisions beenie doing...so far in every game we were expected to take a schlaking.....and we have faced up against two teams with EXCEPTIONAL if nto some of the worlds best defenders.....beenie decision to start jons n john was simple..ferdinand and terry are two BIG MEN and we needed to BIG men to tire them out......tire them out and then bring in a workhorse who runs at people aka GLENN....its caled taking advatnage in the right time....look at erickson ....he brought on rooney and lennon to run at us right as he saw we start to let up .......beenie couldnt afford to bring on another attacker we had to still play behind the ball . Now after watching that game and hearing the comments.....all i can do as a TRINI IS PRAY WE BUST LICKS IN PARAGUAY ASS BOUT 3 GOALS.....AND HOPE THAT ENGLAND BEAT SWEEDEN AT LEAST BY 2......THIS WAY WE CAN STILL QUALIFY.......DATS A BEST CASE SCENARIO

reality -LETS AT LEAST SCORE A GOAL.....we can be credible in the world cup but we have to make a mark other than the first red card.(not all avery fault)

AND REMEBER WE WERENT SUPOSED TO HAVE A CHANCE AT EVEN OPTIMISM OF MAKING TI THROUGH TO THE NEXT ROUND.....AT LEAST WE ARE DOING MUCH BETER THAN THE YANKS
