liverpool-logo.jpgLiverpool 2 - 1 BlackburnBlackburn-Rovers-icon.jpg

Half Time : (1 - 1)

M. Balotelli 4

S. Gerrard 7

J. Fernando Torres 67

It was a hard fought effort by the Rovers when it came to statistics but unfortunatly they couldnt show it on the score board. With Blackburns 52% possesion to Liverpools 48% and Blackburns 12 shots to Liverpools 10. Not only was it bad on the scoreboard for Blackburn, but new signing and goalscorer Balotelli was injured, with what has said to be a Hernia. They it will take a month for him to recover, which is not good news for Rovers because of there lack of strickers.

It all started with the young Italian sensation, Mario Balotelli. With Blackburn eventually finding the fees for him, he made his debut against power house Liverpool and managed to find his first goal with in 4 minutes. With Balotelli managing to uses his pace to round not Puyol and Lucio, but walked pat the keeper to slot it home. But the lead was cut short 3 minutes later.

After 7 minutes of play, Liverpool main man stepped up to put his side back on level terms and gt the supporters on there feet. After poor defending in the bo it fell to the central midfielder who hammered home the equalizer. Altough Gerrard managed to qualize, Blackburn were managing to creat opportunities untill it got worse for the Rovers.

Ono Kolo!

:eek:

Well it would appear Arsenal have run into their first injury woe so far this season, as during Friday practice, which saw Eduardo return to resume full practice with the rest of his teammates after a long while since his rehab, recovery from a broken leg, wasn't exactly the return he'd be hoping for. During the practice it has been reported, during scrimmage, Nasri played a lovely chip through-ball onto Eduardo who then attempted to strike the ball on a half-volley attempt, but completely mistimed it, thus missing the ball and smashing Kolo Toure's ankle :rolleyes: ...bit rusty there eh Eduardo. :P Toure's ankle has been severely swollen, with a mild sprain which will keep him out for 1/2 weeks according to the physios, a mild setback for a team in galactic form.

Captured pics of Toure receiving treatment at the practice, on the bright side... Eduardo's leg is back. :D Also pictured above is in relation to swirling rumours in the Gooner camp that Toure has been having gas problems along with constipation, as they say, 'a picture is worth a thousand words'.

Match Preview Round 5 - Blackburn vs Tottenahm

rovers.gifBlackburn vs Tottenhamspurs.gif

Blackburn with 3 loses and 1 win against Tottenham who are currently on 1 lose, 1 draw and 2 wins. With Blackburn not winning a game since Dragovic's debut game against Everton in the 2nd round, and Tottenham on fairly good form with big name players such as Ronaldinho, Simao and Srna, they will be hoping for a win to push themselves up from 8th spot. On the other hand, Blackburn only with 3 points on the board will be happy with a draw after many new players have arrived at the club, and boss Dragovic came in today saying he wont be expecting any miracles. With star stricker Balotelli who scored on his debut out, Blackburn dont have any other out and out strickers. Dragovic came out today and said "Its not going to be easy at all and with Balotelli out i am going to have to bring someone else up front and hopefully they can fill Balotelli's boots but at the moment i am not expecting any miracles. I just want them to fight hard and impress the home supporters".

I will always love this club.I am shocked at being sacked.the board of directors think i was not good enough.I will sorely miss giving half-time team talks and all the banter and jokes.In fact,i will miss everything about this club as it has been like a second home to me.I will miss everything about this club and i hope you'll miss me.

It is not yet known who will take over from but it is suspected relitivaley unknown Irish rookie Sean Campbell will take the helm.Here is Paddy Power's bettting odds:

Re: English Championship 3951 - Transfer/Gossip thread

Tom Field has declared that he has no intention of joining Bristol City and that he is committed to the Tottenham cause and believes that Sean Campbell would be best suited to the team as he is good at getting the best out of smaller teams as seen before in teams like Northampton Town.

Neiva collects another win to remain the only manager 100% victorious in the whole setup

The Walsall Impartial Press

Guilherme Neiva is the men of the moment. His first humble reaction to the fact that he was the only manager who solely collected victories so far in the whole setup, was "I´m so awesome. I mean, let´s face it, I´m incredible. My genius is incomparable". Neiva, who took charge of Walsall in the beginning of the season, turned his peanut players in authentic champions, and is proudly the manager with most points in the setup. He added "Whenever you speak about me, take off your hat and put your hand in the chest, because you are talking about an icon, an ambassador of football, a living legend. I´m the best. Testify!".

Match Report Round 5 - Blackburn vs Tottenham

rovers.gifBlackburn 0 vs 0 Tottenhamtottenham%20badge2.gif

A 0-0 draw which could have been 3-3, how many opportunities were made, especially by Blakcburn. Although the home side lost the battle in possesion 33% to 67%, they had 7 more scoring shots (12 to 5). It was an unfortunat result for the home team, feeling that they could of taken all three points. This result kept Blackburn at 15th spot with 4 points and made Tottenham drop to 10th spot with 10 points. Blackburn manager Daniel Dragovic came out after the match and said "It would of been great if we took home the 3 points and keep a clean sheet but we couldnt finish our opportunites. J. Pereira did well up front doing as much as he could but couldnt finish. It was unfortunat that we could have out main man out there, Balotelli who showed is class scoring last week against Liverpool. I was very pleased with the midfield, especially the two central midfielders Dzageov and Marchisio. They did exceptionaly well to create the opportunities we hade and also full credit to the centre backs who did what they could to stop the great attacking players Spurs have such and Ronaldinho and Pavlyachenko.

breaking+news.gif

Plymouth_Argyle_FC.png

News coming out of a Six (6) hour meeting between Chairman Paul Stapleton and Manager Yhanick Scott is that money believed to be available to the club is somehow missing. Manager Scott has this to say:

This is all really strange to me and somehow confusing. When I first came here the chairman told me what his plans were. Mr. Stapleton told me specifically what our spending budget would be and I was told by the head of the finance department what we could afford to spend on wages per week. Now with that in my head I sign players accordingly. Now I am hearing none of this is so. Its all confusing and really I am in disgust with the unprofessional manner of the club.

Chairman Stapleton had this to say:

I think this is a really big misunderstanding on the part of the manager. He is spending money like he thinks he is at Real Madrid. Somebody better wake him up and tell him he is dreaming.I got a figure and he got the same figure and he went over the figure agreed by nearly double the amount. THAT IS INSANE

Manager Scott broke the bank for Christian Noboa at a fee of $4.9 million and in recent days the signing of Filippo Carobbio for $3.5 million. Both starting midfielders.
