Good Luck………Goodluck Ebele Jonathan

30 06 2010


Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (center) is the president of Nigeria and has a pretty powerful approach of inspiring his country’s national soccer team. Since Nigeria failed to advance out of their group and since they were one of the heavy favorites out of the African teams in the World Cup, Goodluck has felt it necessary to take matters into his own hands and use his powers as president to lead, encourage, inspire, and demonstrate his love for the beautiful game by……….suspending the entire Nigerian national soccer team from competing in any international competitions for two years due to the embarrassing and horrific performances during World Cup play.

The BBC reported:

Nigeria’s president has suspended his nation’s football team from international competition for two years after a poor showing at the World Cup.

Special presidential adviser Ima Niboro told reporters the decision by Goodluck Jonathan will “enable Nigeria to reorganize its football.”

He said: “This directive became necessary following Nigeria’s poor performance in the ongoing World Cup.”

Uhhhhhhhhh am I missing something? Does this make any sense to anyone? I understand that the country needs to retool its program but not allowing them to compete at the top levels for two-years!?!? I almost find it harder to believe that the president of Nigeria actually has a name like Goodluck Jonathan.

Well, good luck to you Goodluck…………Good luck.





FIFA World Cup Trophy Stolen!!

29 06 2010

Actually it was just seven replica trophies stolen. The Associated Press released the breaking story today that the FIFA headquarters had in fact been broken into and seven replica world cup trophies had been stolen. There was no sign of break in and officials think that it may have been an inside job.

Gen. Bheki Cele said at a security briefing Tuesday, “We know that there was a burglary at the FIFA offices where they took seven replicas of the World Cup.”

Cele says official FIFA clothing was also taken.

In a related story World Cup referee Koman Coulibaly (the referee that called the phantom foul on the USA vs Slovenia) was seen entering a Hooters restaurant in Paris France were witnesses said he had presented a number trophies to some of France’s larger than life players. When asked what he thought he was doing, Koman simply replied, “I thought France had won. That’s the way I saw it and I call em like I see ’em. I saw them win and saw them conduct themselves with the up most class. Team France are winners.”

Hmmmm interesting.





Biggest Win In U.S. Soccer History?

23 06 2010


ESPN has a new poll out asking that same question. With over 37,000 votes recorded an over whelming majority believe that this 1-nil win over Algeria is in fact the biggest win in U.S. mens soccer history. To be honest I really have to agree with this poll. Watching this match with my fellow soccer supporters, drinking beer at 7:00am, standing up and sitting down a thousand times, and knowing what a win would mean for this country was almost unbearable for 90+ min. But when Landon Donovan scored the only goal in the 91st min, all the stress left my body………in the form of a yell that made my throat so raw that it hurts to whisper even as I’m typing this post. This truly is an amazing day for U.S. soccer!!

I don’t really even feel bad for the Algerian team. Based on the way most of the players look I’m sure they are already headed to the nearest rave going on in South Africa. I actually read an article that said 12 players from the Algerian national team had traveled to South Africa with plenty of extra glow sticks, Ecstasy, pacifiers, and back up tight-fitting Algerian jerseys.

All in all well done U.S. Now bring on Ghana………rhea!!!!!





A Letter To Lionel Messi

22 06 2010

 

Dear Messi,

I just finished watching you play for team Argentina were you beat team Greece 2-nil. And I have to say that you really impressed me. Your first touch is absolutely amazing. Being that your only 23 years old and leading your country in the largest stage in the world is pretty incredible. This past season playing for Barcelona were you recorded 34 goals in league play. Man you are on the top of your game!

But Messi, I really have a bone to pick with you. You are only 23 years old and make over 9.5 million pounds a year from Barcelona. You travel all over the world and are loved by millions……..but seriously……what are you thinking with your hair?!?!?! Have you looked in a magazine or watched a movie? No one has a business in the front party in the back bowl cut anymore! You look like Jose Canseco in the 80’s when he played for the Oakland A’s and was doing forearm bumps with Mark McGwire. Do you drive a Trans Am? Do you wear a jean jacket? Do you peg your pants? Do you listen you Def leopard? Cause you look like you do!! When I look at your highlights it looks like I’m watching the episode of Knight Rider when David Hasselhoff had to play football to stop a drug lord from selling crack to inner city kids {Kit had to come and save the day once again….it was was pretty sweet!}.

But really I just wanted to write you this letter Messi, asking you to please change the hair. It really looks bad.

Your Friend,

Jacob





Au Revoir Caca Bouche

20 06 2010

Nicolas Anelka was just kicked off the French World Cup squad yesterday for getting into a heated argument with French manager Raymond Domenech. Cry Baby Anelka has been reported to have verbally attacked Domenech and then refusing to apologize. This all was stemming from team France getting their asses handed to them by team Mexico.

First of all a part of me would want to lash our irrationally if I was humiliated by team Mexico. CBA {Cry Baby Anelka} has been under a lot of pressure since the lack of performance in some of Frances World Cup friendlies and in the opening match with Uruguay which ended in a nil nil finish.

Secondly are any of us really surprised by CBA’s actions? Who does he play for in the EPL? What type of player is able to look at his face in the mirror every morning and still play for Chelsea? That type of person is the same one that would get kicked off his own country’s national team, have the ego to verbally attack your boss, disgrace the beautiful game, and think he is in the right.

Monsieur Anelka, you are a douche!





Villa’s in our blood, right Mr. Hanks?!

13 06 2010

I would first like to apologize for my long absence from posting. My only excuse is that I was busy fighting Chelsea fans from luring young boys into their vans down by the river. I’d like to say I fought the good fight and saved every innocent child… I did not. Chelsea has proven again that money can buy you wins, players, and apparently pre-pubescent kiddos. But I digress, yes that is THE Tom Hanks holding up his villa scarf proudly. Even Tom Hanks swears by the mighty villains!! Tom Hanks is one of the most successful actors of our time. He is known for his movies BIG, CASTAWAY, and PHILADEPHIA where he won an academy award for his portrayal of a Chelsea fan, and what its long term effects can be.

I just wanted to say that Mr. Hanks has class, charm and good taste in football clubs. Villa is in our blood. Much like Newcastle gets in your blood from sharing needles or inter-species mating.

So all I have to say is…

UP WITH VILLA!!!





Glenn Beck Makes Me Laugh

12 06 2010

I was reading an article on one of our footy friends http://www.epltalk.com/ and they had posted an article {http://www.epltalk.com/glenn-beck-hates-soccer-and-the-world-cup/20799#more-20799 } that I felt needed to be reposted in a way on our site. It’s about a conservative talk show host and Fox TV host here in the States named Glenn Beck. On his radio show he had a segment on the World Cup. He goes on for about two mins ripping soccer and ripping the World Cup. He compares the World Cup to the Obama administration {huge slap in the face} and basically says that no one here in the states really gives a crap about soccer.

Listen here:

Whats funny here is that he really has not done a lick of research on his topic. He really makes himself sound very foolish and really like a douche when the facts show that Americans really do like soccer and there is a growing interest in the sport {http://www.epltalk.com/how-popular-world-cup/20213 }.

Mr. Beck….get your facts straight and stop making an ass out of yourself!!

Thanks http://www.epltalk.com/ for the info and story! Love you guys!!
