Robinho can leave but...

Robinho who has been restless of late at the capital club has been told that he can leave but he has to face the consequences of his actions though. Madrid are one club who have been known to be very compassionate towards their players and considering their career as well but the club cannot compromise on it's interests and it's desires to win trophies. The player announcing to the press about his will to the press this Friday was not correct. First of all, he has gone public about his desires which is not the right way to do things in Madrid because we are not like anyother club and we do consider a player's desire. Second of all, with just one week remaining in the transfer it gives us no time to find replacements and with you in the manager's plans for the season this is a bad thing to do. But nobody is forcing you. You wanna leave, then hell go ahead but not without compensating. We are not going to transfer you even for 40 or 50 million euros. Buy out your contract that has still two years in it and estimated at 150 million euros. The amount will be decided by the courts and Rob need not pay the entire amount. So if he wants to leave, he should leave now.

Argentina strike Gold

It was sweet revenge for Argentina as they avenged their defeat to Nigeria twelve years ago at the Atlanta games in 1996. Argentina won 1-0 after a superb pass from Messi found di Maria and the Benfica winger finished with ease. It has been a superb tournament for the Argentines and Messi in particular with them successfully defending their gold medal from Athens 4 years ago.

Ferguson cuts a sorry figure

The Man Utd manager clearly looked wondering what went wrong after his team's season opener against the magpies at home. One thing that was obvious from the match was the fact that Manu sucked big time without C.Ron. A lotta begging was apparently involved and eventually, the cry baby sir Alex managed to hold on to a man who was clearly not interested even a little in staying back. We can only wonder what's going through Ron's mind now. It's sick considering the fact that this is a free world, a man is not able to follow his dreams. I think Sepp Blatter was audacious in making the comment he did but no matter what the ugly practice of slavery is still very much alive even in today's world.

Anybody can be a CHAMP

Yes! Now anybody can win eight gold medals in a single Olympics. Literally anybody. You need not be Michael Phelps to do the impossible. You can do what he does if you eat 12000cal a day and swim for five hours a day, six days a week.
Breakfast: Three fried egg sandwiches; cheese; tomatoes; lettuce; fried onions; mayonnaise; three chocolate-chip pancakes; five-egg omelette; three sugar-coated slices of French toast; bowl of grits; two cups of coffee
Lunch: Half-kilogram (one pound) of enriched pasta; two large ham and cheese sandwiches with mayonnaise on white bread; energy drinks
Dinner: Half-kilogram of pasta, with carbonara sauce; large pizza; energy drinks
To be a CHAMP, you gotta eat like a CHAMP!

Argentina thrash Brazil

Argentina thrash Brazil 3-0 in their semi-final encounter of the Beijing Olympics. All three goals came in the second half with Aguero scoring a brace and Riquelme scoring from the spot to give Argentina the victory. the whole game was lively and clearly Argentina were the better side. Brazil's attack had no gloss and their defence was shaky right from the start and looked more likely to concede. Argentina came close to scoring in the first half but didn't and the score sheet remained nil-nil. They kept attacking all the time and were rewarded with the victory.

King of the POOL.

17th August 2008 was the day that saw Michael Phelps establish himself as the king of Olympics with his 8th gold medal in the 4*100 metre Medley relay. The American quartet - completed by Aaron Peirsol, Brendan Hansen and Jason Lezak - touched the wall in three minutes 29.34 seconds, 1.34 seconds under the world record and 0.70 secs ahead of Australia with Japan in third.
Michael's two Gold medals were in the team events. One of his events, the 100m butterfly was a close call with Phelps finishing just one hundredth of a second behind Serbian Milorad Cavic who led for almost the whole race. Nonetheless you can't take credit away from this man.
