“It has been a privilege and an honour to represent this great club for as long as I have and I am immensely proud to have done so and thankful for all the support I have had.”
You will be missed, but you will never be forgotten.
Thank you for everything.
You’ll never walk alone.
England 2 - 1 Brazil
It may only have been a friendly, but for the first time in twenty three years we’ve beaten Brazil - definitely cause for celebratory dancing to Three Lions methinks XD
In other news though, Brazil officially win all the awards for player names, with brilliant examples including Julio Cesar, Dante, the mouthful of Da Silva Leandro Casta, a whole crew of “inho”s, and my personal favourites, Fred and Hulk. Seriously, those are fantastic XD
A quick indicator of my optimism this season…
- Liverpool are without a win in three games in their worst start to a season for 50 years.
- Lucas Leiva: Liverpool midfielder faces three months out
The Brazilian, who missed most of last season with a knee injury, suffered the problem in the opening minutes of Sunday’s draw with Manchester City.
- Brendan Rodgers regrets Andy Carroll loan exit from Liverpool Liverpool manager
Brendan Rodgers has admitted he would not have allowed Andy Carroll to join West Ham had he known he would be unable to strengthen his squad. Rodgers let the England striker leave for Upton Park as he was convinced he would bring in either Fulham’s Clint Dempsey or Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge on loan.
- Liverpool 0 - 2 Arsenal
Arsenal secured their first victory of the season in impressive style at Anfield as they won comfortably against a desperately poor Liverpool. To make matters worse, the decline of goalkeeper Pepe Reina continues as he was again badly at fault for Cazorla’s second goal that settled the destiny of the points.
Please excuse me whilst I sit in a corner and weep.
HOWEVER, I cling to the warm happy feeling from this article:
- Steven Gerrard: I turned down Manchester United and Real Madrid
Gerrard revealed he was wanted by Sir Alex Ferguson at United, as well as Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid but refused to walk out on Liverpool.
And this is why he is Captain Fantastic. Small mercies, eh?
Thank you for being a servant to this club for six years. We couldn’t have asked for a more dedicated or talented player than you, and you will be dearly missed. I know us fans will miss the energy and desire you brought on the field as much as your funny interviews and personality off the pitch. You’re an amazing person, Dirk Kuyt, so good luck to you as you embark on the next journey of your footballing career. The Kopites will never forget your time here.
You’ll Never Walk Alone.
#still heartbroken TT.TT
You will be missed.
Now please excuse me whilst I go curl up in a corner and WEEP.
The 39-year-old will sign a three-year contract at Anfield and his appointment is likely to be officially confirmed within 24 hours.
Liverpool will pay Swansea City between £4m and £5m in compensation to secure the Northern Irishman’s services.
Seeing how well Swansea did this last season, I am cautiously positive…
If you can’t stand with your team when they’re losing, you don’t deserve to stand with them when they win.
England vs. India - Hockey at the Olympic Park
Last week I went to visit my friend @BlueSkyBlues in London, because he had tickets for the final day of the London Prepares: Visa International Invitational Hockey Tournament at the Olympic Park, which was part of a series of warm up tournaments to test out how things would work before theactual Olympics start.
The Olympic park is a strange place - it feels like a mixture of the swish bits of Birmingham, Milton Keynes, and a festival of some kind. It’s hard to pin down because obviously it wasn’t the full event, and the park isn’t quite finished yet, and I imagine it will feel completely different when the Games are underway, but right now it feels very artificial. And it doesn’t really feel anything like London either…
Either way though, I had great fun! We arrived a bit late, but still saw most of England vs. India in the Bronze medal match (which England won 2-1), and all of Germany against Australia in the final (which Germany won 5-2). The atmosphere was remarkably good (even though only three of the four the grandstands were full) with a small brass band playing Indiana Jones, The Great Escape, the Wallace and Gromit theme tune, and host of other crowd pleasers, with people clapping and cheering along. And the rain held off, thankfully, even if it wasn’t particularly warm!
And yes, the pitch really is neon pink and blue astroturf. Apparently though, the official name for that particular pink is “London Pink”…
We go forwards unto Glory.
You’ll never walk alone.
F1 nail art
Tyres done in a combination of matte and gloss polish. Wets, Inters, and Hards on that hand (Soft, Super Soft, and Medium on the other).
On the middle finger is Felipe Massa’s helmet. I did that left handed, and yet it’s the neater of the two hands (go figure!).
For race day, there’ll be chequered flags on my thumbs too :D
TL;DR - I have too much free time!
