    Only In Ireland

    Its a strange one alright. Try this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ireland_national_rugby_union_team I think its basically down to a load of toffs playing the game.I'd say that the majority playing the game back in the late 1800's were probably all middle to upper class protestants and saw the team as being their team rather than of two separate nations from the 1920's. Anyway Rugby is fucking shite. Any game where you kick the ball out of play and its seen as some sort of master stroke is just wrong

    Jamie Redknapp: fence sitting fidget

    Its not just Liverpool he's non commital about, its everything. He'll be just a vapid in a game between say Portsmouth and Villa. ps. Sky also employ Phil Thompson, Frank Mclintock and many opinionated other pundits. Even Andy Gray is for the most past anti-LFC because of his Everton past, which in turn causes him to lean towards Chelsea and United.

    he's there to analyse but has no opinions. picking a team to win the cup is hardly controversial

    Greatest player in your lifetime?

    the best player, without a doubt for anyone who saw him was diego. its true what rashid says that he could do it all. i watched ronaldinho closely against chelsea last week and although class, he is not near diego's level. maradona would just sit in the middle of the park and burst forward with it, completely unstoppable against any opposition. i find that most of the clips on the net don't do him justice. i used to watch napoli in serie A every monday night on rte in Ireland back in the 80's and he was a sight to behold. check out this genius at work clip for evidence, one of the few good ones on the net. this was diego at 20, use high resolution if possible. he had this balance and deftness of touch that no other had. ronaldiho is brilliant has great tricks but he can't glide like maradona http://www.thefa.com/England/SeniorTeam/NewsAndFeatures/Postings/2005/09/EnglandvArgMaradonaVideo.htm if anyone has good highlights of the 86 belgium or england games it'd be great to get a link
  8. Apologies if this has already been posted, but i found that there was certainly very little about the return of god on the sunday papers. this was one of the few substantial articles. IF one word encapsulates the ideas Rafael Benitez has tried to promote since becoming Liverpool's manager it is 'clever'. He likes clever players and he has bought a few, from the sublimely clever Xabi Alonso to the frustratingly clever Luis Garcia. Benitez organises his teams rigidly but there is expression too. He believes that a footballer can use his imagination, daring and wit. It is the most startling contrast with the last regime where the only daring moments came when Gerard Houllier started to make his excuses. The signing of Robbie Fowler on Friday evening is the symbolic conclusion of Houllier's reign. It may be the triumph of sentiment over reason, but there is a need for both in every great football team. While Djibril Cisse continues to play with the blankness and vacuity that made his miss from six yards at Old Trafford last week not an aberration but the logical conclusion to his general play, Liverpool will not be free of Houllier's influence. But Fowler's return says something. He remains a better player than Cisse, even at 30, even with a dicky knee, hip and back. The years when Liverpool looked to Emile Heskey, El Hadji Diouf and Salif Diao for inspiration have come to an end. Houllier may have known what he wanted, but he had no idea how to get it except to sign footballers on an identikit basis of pace and power. Skill rarely came in to it. Cleverness, with its connotations of individuality and expression, was a dirty word. Fowler, at 30 is finally getting the manager who would have made him, at 20, one of the greatest strikers in the history of the game. He was indulged at first at Liverpool, then never more than tolerated, his massive popularity a strain on the regime rather than a sign of how players at the club shared some sort of a bond with the team. But when Benitez preaches about the suppression of ego, he is not just talking about the players but his own. He does not care what people think of him, evidenced by his refusal to sign Michael Owen and his decision to go head to head with Hull and Norwich City in signing a player many believe to be gone. Benitez doesn't care what people think and, while he has the support of Liverpool's fans in re-signing Fowler, there would be many managers as concerned with the reaction of their peers to signing a player who has yet to start a Premiership game this season. But Fowler's intelligence and his ability to read the knockdowns of Peter Crouch may propel him towards a swansong. Cisse does not have the intelligence to participate in a team game, while Fernando Morientes only has brief moments where he appears to be adapting. Fowler will challenge them all, while he proves to himself and others that he has not entered semi-retirement, content to work on his golf handicap and live off the earnings of his many, many properties.
