0-0 at half-time...chances for both teams...half chance for Tallman, but he couldn't put it away.

The video feed is poor, but the audio stream is entertaining...as entertaining as a audio stream can be... :-\

Yeah, PSV left the tournament with their heads held high...hopefully they can keep their players and sign a good centre forward. I didn't give them a chance against Lyon, much less AC Milan, and they did really well.

AC Milan will not be schooled like that in the final; they just have too much experience and are too talented, and their pride is hurt.

I shouldn't really say anything about Liverpool. To me they can do no wrong. For a neutral, I would agree with the fact that they not exactly sexy to watch, but I don't care. Rafa completely out-thought and out-strategized Jose, and Jamie Carragher gets better with every match. Sven was in the crowd Tuesday night, and hopefully bumps JC up the pecking order.

Prediction: Liverpool 1-0

Football / Carlos Edwards talks

Carlos Feels Happier With Form

AFTER the midweek victory at Port Vale, manager Denis Smith challenged wingback Carlos Edwards to come up with a big goal for the club and he did that on Saturday, by scoring to wrap up victory at Stockport.

"I'm delighted with my goal," said a very happy Carlos. "It's my first of the season and it's nice to get off the mark.

"It's just one step towards getting us safe though, and I'll do everything I can to get the club out of trouble.

Looking like his old self again, Carlos is happy to be playing once more:

"It took me a while to get back into my form. I don't want to make excuses, but it has taken a while for me to get back to doing the things which I've been doing for the last couple of seasons.

"It's come to a stage now where I've found my form, and though it's quite late in the season I just hope it can continue."

While we are still in contention to stay up, how does the winger view our chances?

Carlos on the ball"There has always been a belief that we can do it. It's always eleven against eleven so we know that anything can happen.

"The fact is that we've gone away, got four goals and three points, and that has to be a big boost going into the last week of the season.

"Hopefully, we can keep playing well together and get the six points we need.

"They're big matches coming up but players want to be involved in big games like that! It's one of those things where players dream of playing in games where they can achieve something special for their club.

"We just want there to be a club here next season, and do our best to make sure it's still in the same division!

"We've always had belief in ourselves. If we didn't there'd be no point in going out there to represent the club.

"We come in to training and to play the matches determined to give a hundred per cent, despite the situation at the club."

DENNIS Lawrence, despite two stitches inserted in an ankle wound after the game at Edgeley Park, is a player who never gives up and he demands that same level of commitment from his team mates.

"I'm very proud," said the defender as he boarded the team bus home from Stockport County.

"Today just shows that we never give up, we'll never chuck in the towel. We've been fighting all along to take it into the last week of the season.

"We've always shown terrific spirit, and today we've given ourselves a chance."

A late win for Chesterfield against Oldham, their first in eight games, keeps alive our survival hopes.

"Now we just have to win on Tuesday to take it to the last game of the season and hope other teams trip up," said Dennis.

"Like any team we've had our bad games, but we've always kept going. That's the way we are!

Guatemala goalie Ricardo Foster catches the ball under pressure from Trinidad and Tobago's Dennis Lawrence."We've always been determined to keep going all the way until the end of the season and put everything into the hands of God and see what happens.

"We're at the stage of the season now where we need to try to be defensively strong, but the bottom line is we just want to win games. If we keep going, and winning our games, then we'll have done our job."

Turning to his Trinidadian colleague Carlos Edwards, the big man was delighted to see him finally getting over his pre-season knee operation.

"It has been brilliant to see Carlos playing so well this week. It's sad for him that the season is ending now, because he could probably do with another ten games!" reflected Dennis.

"We can still see Carlos at his best next season though, so let's cross our fingers and see what happens!"

Well I am biased, but I think Steven Gerrard is better than Frank Lampard, though he has been really inconsistent this season (much like the team as a whole). I'll tell you what though, they will be a formidable duo for England next year.

How about Kaka? I think he has the potential to be something special, but probably isn't there yet..

I hope he gets on a scoring run too, so he could leave that sh*t club and get back into the Premiership or at least a Premiership contender..

Thanks Rodney, it's a good camera.  :D

I would say that Wrexham is my second team. I saw them twice at their Racecourse Ground. In the beginning it was to see the Trinis, but it's a great atmosphere and given the problems the club is in, they need all the help they can get..

Fellahs, I was there. I'll post more later (and I have pictures too) but I was happy for them. Lawrence and Edwards played all 120 minutes, Sam warm-up for the whole 120 minutes.

"How is China's population so big? They've the best contraception..their women are so ugly"

By Andy Lines

FOOTBALL'S anti-racism campaigners were appalled and astonished last night at the latest gaffe by disgraced TV analyst Ron Atkinson.

The former Man Utd and Aston Villa boss has spent months trying to resurrect his lucrative career after his "n***er" insult aimed at Chelsea's Marcel Desailly last April.

But on Thursday night, at a dinner at another former club Sheffield Wednesday, he was at it again - with a joke about Chinese women being "the ugliest in the world". Kick It Out, the group trying to eliminate racism in football, said: "It seems completely incomprehensible that someone who has gone to great lengths to clear his name should come out with this.

"He seems to be consistently insulting about people because of their race.

"In this day and age you cannot make jokes about race."

A diner at the fund-raising gathering at Wednesday's Hillsborough's stadium complained to the Mirror and said: "I just could not believe what I was hearing.

"I would have thought that given what has happened to him in the past 12 month, he would totally avoid any references to race issues.

"I mean it is not a difficult subject to steer clear away from, is it?

"I was really quite surprised at his naivete and ignorance."

Atkinson, 65, says he "can't believe" the latest storm and claimed he cracked the joke in connection with a story about a visit to China in the late 1970s by his then club West Bromwich Albion.

On the trip, an Albion player was asked about what he thought about the Great Wall of China. He is said to have replied: "Once you've seen one wall, you've seen them all."

Atkinson followed the story with this "joke": "I can't understand why there is such a population problem in China as they have the best contraception going - Chinese women are the ugliest in the world."

Sheffield Wednesday club historian Keith Howard was among 264 guests at the dinner.

He confirmed Atkinson had made the remark, but said nobody had taken offence or raised it as issue.

Mr Howard said: "Ron gave a speech almost an hour long. The vast majority was about his managerial career. He made very very few jokes.

"But I did hear the one about the Chinese. Certainly no one took offence and he actually got a laugh.

"There was a comedian on afterwards and he was far worse, taking the mickey out of the Irish, Jews and coloureds.

"I don't think anyone was offended by what Ron had to say and he got a very good reception. Supporters appreciated him turning up."

Atkinson lost his job with ITV after calling Chelsea's Desailly "a lazy f*****g n***er". He wrongly thought he was totally off air but the comment last April was broadcast in the Middle East.

A nurturer of black talent in his West Brom days, Atkinson apologised profusely and recently returned to TV. Now his hopes of a major comeback seem doomed.

Atkinson said: "I cannot believe anyone has complained about anything I said. I went there to help them out and to raise money. I stayed for ages and did photographs,

"I can't believe this, I just can't believe this. I can't say anything now. I've been ultra-careful about everything. It was an easy evening and everyone enjoyed themselves."

Leni Renton, director of the top London modelling agency Modelplan, said: "Mr Atkinson does not know what he is talking about.

"Chinese women are amongst the most beautiful in the world. We have several on our books and they really are very beautiful and incredibly hard-working."

"Rafa Rafael, Rafa Rafael, Rafa Rafael, Rafael Benitez!"

The man has great coats and says "mentality" every other word...

The other one who isn't mentioned very much is Sam Allardyce...he has Bolton playing some excellent football right now..

I can't see anyone getting past Milan...not even Liverpool unfortunately  :(

I think the best match will be Bayern v Chelsea. The Milan derby is usually dull and boring despite the pre-match hype. I think Lyon will pound PSV (Lyon look scary-good recently). Liverpool v Juve has the historical significance of course, but even as a Liverpool fan, I have to say that we are outclassed on paper. Bayern and Chelsea should be a good matchup, especially if both Ballack and Roy McKay are healthy. Possibly the two best goalkeepers in the world too if you ask me...

Football / Re: Should Bertille St. Clair be replaced as head coach?
« on: March 06, 2005, 01:21:49 PM »
First of all, kudos to Flex and Tallman for this message board. I too will miss the old one, but I have to admit, this ting SEXY fuh so!

As for Bertille, I think there needs to be a major offload of players, staff and mentality as a whole. Bertille, Yorke, Camps...the whole regime needs to leave. HOWEVER, the time for this is NOT now. Let this next Guatemala match be the major test for BSC. We win, he stays. We lose, the change should be made sooner rather than later.

Big up Soca Warriors!
