    Official: Maradona Is Still The Sunderland Coach



    Diego Maradona denies all the rumors spread by The Guardian stating that he would leave Sunderland. Maradona certainly didn't spare on his words.
    Through an early morning press-release made by Diego Maradona, he denied all the rumors saying he would leave Sunderland. He is very happy at the north-east coast, and the only thing he seems to dislike around here is the weather.

    Lensois got a reaction from Harris 17 in Raul Goni (By Higgy and Pazzano)   
    Raul Goni

    Name: Raul Goni
    Nationality: Spanish
    Age: 21
    Club: Real Zaragoza
    Position: Defender
    His Career
    Raul Goni started his young footballing career by playing for the local side U.D. Montecarlo. As a native Aragon-born player, Goni's highest desire was to one day play for the big team of the Aragon county, Real Zaragoza.
    Goni moved to Zaragoza during his early teens, and quickly established himself throughout the youth-ranks of Zaragoza, as he was a part of the ''golden'' talents of Zaragoza B alongside Lacruz, Laguardia, Herrera. Goni was knocking on the door of first-team action in 2007, but it was still early days, and Goni saw his playing-time with the A-squad limited.
    After Zaragoza got relegated at the end of the 07/08 season, many key-players left Zaragoza and young players like Laguardia and Goni, himself, got a chance to shine with the A-squad. After starting as bench-player, Goni got several chances during the 08/09 season after some non-impressive play by the now ''has-been'', Roberto Ayala. However, when he was going to participate for the Spain-U21 team in February '09, he got himself badly injured knee-injured and missed the rest of the season.
    As a reward for his good season, Goni got his contract renewed till 2014.
    When Zaragoza came back to La Liga the following season, they brought in some new names to about every area. Goni once again saw his playing-time limited, despite beeing impressive the previous season. However, as Zaragoza practically were in a big mess the first half of the season, Goni got some chances to prove himself (once again) under the newly appointed coach José Aurelio G a y. Zaragoza got back on track and Goni played really well, and no one could have expected what would happen on the 10th January '10.
    So let's got to 10th January...
    Goni had been sick and could really train normally with the rest of the team during the week the match would occure. However, G a y trusted in his talent and the impressive play he had showed during this period and let Goni, despite beeing ill that week, start against Espanyol.
    Now, Goni, who wasn't really match-fit at all, was a complete disaster against Espanyol, and since then, he hasn't been seen as a starter anymore by José Aurelio... and has seen his playing-time very limited.
    And on top of this, he dragged up his knee-injury he got the season before in February '10 and was once again side-lined for the rest of the season.
    However, instead of beeing a lazy little player, who can blame his lazyness beacuse of injuries, Goni worked hard throughout the summer of '10 in order to get back on the pitch as fast as possible (didn't even take vacation), and aswell enjoyed a really good pre-season with Zaragoza where he was very impressive at the defence.
    Then the shock-news came: Goni has been loaned out for a season long loan to Real Madrid Castilla during the final days of the summer transfer-window of '10. Now this was not taken good by the Zaragoza fans and they prostested in La Romareda when the team held their annunal squad-presentation. Just this shows how highly rated Goni is by the Zaragoza fans.
    So, Goni has enjoyed both highs and lows in his relative young career, and he is now perhaps on his lowest point ever in his career, but still, his talent can't be denied.
    Playing-style

    Goni is a strong, reliable and forceful defender. He is calm and safe, he stands out for his good positioning and his steadfastness while marking.
    He reminds me of Pique, he dominates with great aerial abilities and depends on his physical strength; but unlike Pique, Raul's game is very defensive and he does not tend to offer as much offensively as Pique.
    Internationally

    Raul Goni was first capped by Spain at U-19 level in 2006, at the young age of 17, as the youngest player on the squad.. making one appearance.
    Goni was again called up in 2009 to the U-21 squad for the Euros, he would however only feature against Finland, as Spain were eliminated in the first round of the group stages following poor performances against Germany and England.
    When it comes to playing for Spain in February, he has been very unlucky. He was first called-up to play for the Spanish U-21 team in February '09, and when he was training with the squad pre-match, he got himself a bad knee-injury and was sidelined for the rest of the season. In February '10, the same thing happened!

    Oumar Pouye

    Name: Oumar Pouye
    Nationality: Senegalese
    Age: 22
    Club: FC Metz (on loan at Évian TG this season though)
    Position: Midfielder
    Pouye came to Metz in 2006. In his first year at Metz he was mostly played in the reserv team of Metz. Under the catastrophic season Metz had during the 07/08 season, which also saw a relegation for them, Pouye got some chances and got to feel the heat on the highest level. As I mentioned above though, Metz got relegated and in order for Pouye to keep developing (Metz made it clear to him that he wouldn't be a starter for them as they were looking for direct promotion and therefore they would put their faith on the more ''experienced players''), he was sent out on loan to National League (Div 3) side, Évian TG. However, it's got to be said that Yvon Pouliquen (the then coach for Metz) trusted in Pouye's talent and therefore instead of selling him, he was sent out on loan by Metz.
    At Évian Pouye took a starting spot directly after his arrival, and enjoyed a very succesful loan-spell at Évian. In the summer of '09, he was expected to seriously push for a starting place at Metz after his succesful spell at Évian TG. However, as Pouliquen now wasn't the Metz coach, Pouye got the message that he wasn't needed at Metz. So, Pouye was sent back to Évian for another season on loan. As during the season before, Pouye took a starting place immidiately and was a key-player in the squad who earned promotion to Ligue 2.
    In the summer of 2010, Pouye was sent out on another season long loan to Évian, meaning that he has now spent three seasons on loan there. So far, he has been starting every game for Évian in their first ever season in Ligue 2, and Pouye has played an important part so far, as Évian supringsly is standing as the 2nd placed team in the league with 13 points.
    What can we say about Pouye's playing-style then? First of all, he certainly has the speed, he also has a good vision for the game and he enjoys a good technique. I also got to say that his one-on-one play is of a very high standard. These tools are certainly useful for a winger of Pouye's calibre.

    Yes, he is a good player and has been playing regulary so far for Bordeaux. He has certainly been one of the best Bordeaux player so far, and he has was certainly a good buy in a competitive championship like this and at this price aswell.
    If Bordeaux reaches CL or EL next season, then I don't doubt he'll be a 90 player or something like that.

    Lensois got a reaction from joepi in Lorenzo Tassi - Can He Do 'A Lukaku'?   
    Valuable Info:
    Name: Lorenzo Tassi
    Nationality:
    Age: 15 (1995)
    Club: Brescia
    Position: Midfielder
    'Grow a talent, and sell him for a high fee after a few years'. That's how the smaller teams around this globe mostly gets their income, but in this case, nothing matters. Brescia may not have the best economy, but instead of selling Tassi for a high fee, they are keeping hold of him.
    Tassi has been developing under the Rondinelle system (The Brescia academy), and has already been training with the A-squad at the age of 15. He has been developing in the right way and has already attract interests from perhaps the two biggest clubs in Italy, Inter and Milan. He, and the Brescia president, Fabio Corioni has quickly turned down both. Although both Inter's and Milan's bids were quite shockingly high for a player in this age (Inter's 2.5M € and Milan's 5M €), they've been rejected, as I said.
    Fabio Corioni has already expressed Tassi as the new Baggio, and has stated that if Tassi keep playing like this, then he will have no problems whatsoever to get some first team action next season in Serie A. I also need to say that Tassi didn't want to leave Brescia when both Milan and Inter, so he has some heart for his club. This sounds abit like Roberto Baggio, don't it...?
    I personally noticed this player under the Bannikov Tournament for U-16 kids earlier this summer (yes, he played with those who are 1 year older than him). He had an outstanding tournament playing in the role as the playmaker/fantasia, just like a certain Baggio. He impressed with me his vision and passes throughout the whole tournament. He and his Italy played very good football and beat Russia, Serbia and Ukraine, and came to the final where they faced, well erm... Belarus, and lost 2-1 against Belarus. Once again Tassi played great and if it weren't for that last minute goal from Belarus, Tassi may have had a gold-medal around his neck.
    He has been dubbed the new Baggio and I can see why. He has no problems with the passes and has a great vision for the game. His primary role is beeing used as a playmaker right behind the striker, where he can use his these strengths. I believe he'll end up getting some chances in Serie A next season. Corioni is a strong man and is always getting as he wants. If he wants Tassi to play Serie A football, then I believe he'll get some too. I honestly believe we can end up seeing this player do 'the Lukaku'. I mean, he is 15 (even younger than Lukaku!), but he has a great chance of getting A-team football next season.

    Joshua Guilavogui

    Name: Joshua Guilavogui
    Nationality: French
    Age: 20
    Club: Saint-Étienne
    Position: Midfielder
    Joshua Guilavogui was born in France in 1990. He started his career at the local club Sporting Toulon at the age of 4, and played there for 10 years before switching to one of the biggest French outfits, Saint-Étienne in 2005.
    After working up his way through the Saint-Étienne youth-ranks, Guilavogui was rewarded with a professional contract with ASSE in the summer of '08. In that contract, it said that he would keep playing with the reserves for another two years before ultimately get an opportunity with the A-team in 2010.
    However, we all know how catastrophic ASSE has looked these recent years. I mean, in my opinion, they're one the 6 biggest clubs in France, but they've always (these recent years) been finishing just right above the relegation spots. For Guilavogui, though, this was his luck. ASSE hired Alan Perrin as the new caoch halfways through the 08/09 season. Guilavogui was given some chances in the A-squad by Perrin (especially during the winter), but as quick as the wind blows - Perrin was gone a few months later, and Guilavogui stayed with reserv squad for the next season (09/10), as he wasn't in the new coach (Christophe Galtier) plans for the 09/10 season.
    But finally Guilavogui got some chances by Galtier during the summer of '10, and he quickly impressed. Galtier showed that he believed in Guilavogui's talent by letting him start in the first two games of this season against (PSG and Sochaux), and he was coming in as a sub against Rennes on the 3rd matchday.
    Guilavogui has been a regular for the French U-19 side since 2008 and he has nailed down an almost assured starting spot aswell. He was aswell a part of the U-19 team for France that competed in the Euro U-19 tournament in 2009. He was a regular for that French U-19 team that got knocked in the quarterfinals against England.
    I've been impressed with him physics, and pace. If he would at any case would be kept on the bench by coach Galtier, he would still be a handy option for Matiudi, for instance. I believe that when the time is coming and ASSE will become a more stable team and therefore put more faith in their youngsters, he will be a starter. He certainly is a good starting option even right now in my opinion.
    Disclaimer: I don't intend to say that he is a riser, as Bocanegra (the LB of ASSE) was injured and Matiudi therefore had to step down from his DM spot and play LB for the first two games, meaning that Guilavogui had to fill in for Matiudi at the DM spot for the first two game. And as Bocanegra was aswell back for the game against Rennes (the latest league game) and started as a LB and Matiudi as a DM, which saw Guilavogui on the bench. However, as the time goes, I believe Guilavogui will be a starter, as I do not rate Bocanegra at all at the LB, as I rate him more as a CB. So therefore, don't count him yet as an assured starter, but he definately is a player to keep an eye at.

    Name: Marco Djuricin
    Nationality: Austrian
    Age: 17 (Born in December '92)
    Club: Hertha Berlin
    Position: Striker
    Marco Djuricin was born in Wien 1992 to a Serbian father and an Austrian mother. He started his young career at Austria Wien where his father (Goran Djuricin) had played aswell during his career and where young Marco would played till 2006, when he joined the rival club from the same city, Rapid Wien.
    After two seasons with Rapid Wien, the then 16 year old player caught the eyes of the Hertha Berlin scouts and moved to the German capital in 2008.
    Djuricin worked his way up through the Hertha Berlin youth ranks, and was a regular for each age-class of the youth squads. He was an important starting player for the Hertha Berlin II squad that came to the final in the DFB Cup for the A-youths (German Cup), but unfornately, they lost 1-2 to Hoffenheim.
    During the summer of 2010, when Hertha had suffered an eyeraising relegation and thus loosing key-players and bleeding (a bit) financial, the youth players of Hertha (and especially Djuricin) had their chance of their lifetime to shine. Djuricin quickly impressed on the newly appointed coach, Marko Babbel, during his first ever pre-season tour with the A-squad by scoring most goals in the whole team during the pre-season alongside Pierre-Michel Lasogga (7 goals). Now Djuricin was an assured first-team member and was rewarded with a contract that would see him as a capital player to 2014.
    Hertha Berlin are without a doubt the ''Bayern'' of Zweite Bundesliga. I mean, practically everyone is expecting them to get back to Bundesliga within a season. So, the pressure was pretty high on Hertha of getting 3 points of their first matchday against Oberhausen infront of about 50.000 at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin. Djuricin started on the bench, as Raffael, the first-choice striker was injured (sickness) and Rob Friend, who is kind of like both first and second-choice, started. After about 15 minutes into the game, Friend got injured and in came the 17 year old Djuricin. Oberhausen dominated the game before Djuricin entered and had the lead for a while, but when Djuricin came in, the game went more and more into Hertha's favour. Djuricin managed to scored two goals in the 2nd half and Hertha won the game 3-2 infront of 50.000 homefans who were demanding a Hertha Berlin win. He was also voted MoM in his debut.
    Marco Djuricin has been a regular for Austria at the U-17 and U-19 level. He was also a part of the Austrian squad that got knocked in the U-19 European Championship at the group stage level this past summer. However, he did manage to score a goal in the tournament though.
    Marco is very versatile and can be used as both as a winger and a lonely striker. He has a good eye for the goal, and has no problems with using the head nor the feets.

He hasn't developed at all, beacuse of constant bench-sitting at both Samp and Cagliari. He is now aswell mostly used as a sub at Samp, so I'd sell him.
    Classy player, and now he has established himself as a playmaker in the National team under Prandelli, so he is now both a regular for Fiorentina and the national team, so definately keep him.

    Pompey Boss Condemns EPL Bosses For "Unsettling Squad"

    The Scotsman is not a happy bunny
    Last night, Portsmouth boss, Patrick Coll, gave a statement condemning two EPL bosses for unsettling his squad.
    The Scotsman accused Sunderland manager, Diego Maradona, and Manchester United coach, AzRule Revamption, of poor sportmanship after both managers made enqurires about two of Portsmouth's first team players less than 24 hours before a crucial league game against Birmingham City. He believes that the two men were trying to unsettle his squad in the hope that Portsmouth wouldn't be able to maintain their good form which has seen the team remain in the top 4 for the majority of the season.
    Speaking at Portsmouth's Training Ground, Coll stated;

    'Westermann Personally Met Me''

    Controversies after controversies - There is no better way to describe the Sunderland boss, Diego Maradona.
    As a respons to Patrice Evra (Bolton manager) statement about Sunderland going to be reported to the FA for their way of handle the deal regarding the German and Bolton defender, Heiko Westermann, coach Maradona was quoted saying ''I've personally met Westermann''.


    - ''I don't know what Bolton what Evra was thinking with that statement. I mean, he had given me the right to meet Westermann. We agreed Westermann's personal terms, and as we (Westermann, his agent and coach Maradona) met up with Evra and his staff in Bolton to agree the fee for the deal, they suddenly stopped our deal. I don't know why they did so. Perhaps they had a better bid from another club, perhaps they changed their mind of a possible sale of Westermann. Either way, it's bad sportsmanship, and as long as I'm the manager of Sunderland, I will never ever do a deal with them! I mean, I personally met Heiko and he expressed his excitement of playing with fellow country mens such as Khedira, Hummels and Bender. It's certainly isn't fair play by Bolton here, and to be honest, they should report themselves to the FA for their way of destroying this deal'', ended a remarkable frustrated Maradona.

    He's a good player. To bad Porto wanted to give a flopping Argentinian the chance to shine there (Bolatti) than to give a promising youngster (Machado) a chance there a while ago' date=' otherwise I'm sure Machado would have been rated 90+ then. He certainly has the talent, but I doubt he can reach 90 or above that while at TFC. He could get a move in the future and he certainly has the potential of reaching 90+ at the right club. Besides, his free-kicks kind of reminds me of another Portuguese player
    Lens
    Talented player, who certainly will get chances to shine at Lens. He has no real competition for a starting place aswell (bar Roudet). But as Roudet also can handle to play on the wing relative well, I'm sure Sertic will have no problems to get a starting spot.

    In my opinion, Ulreich has been the best player so far for them this season, and this collapse Stuttgart has had (compared to the 2nd half of the last season), is purely beacuse of the catastrophic defence.

    Crazy to not call him up. I mean' date=' it wasn't his fault that Evra, Anelka and Gallas tried to take over the French team at the world cup. He has done nothing wrong, and I'm sure the haters of him (Ribery for instance) are having a big laugh now when they've seen this.
    Yeah, totally forgot about it. He has the same injury as Cris and is expected to be out for a month.
    He is still in good shape' date=' which we saw last weekend against Lorient.
    Besides, who hasn't played for some months now?
    Agreed
