Congratulations to Spain and Cesc Fabregas for proving to the world that beautiful football can win trophies. I only caught the first few minutes (enough to see Torres’ goal) and so I can’t comment on the match but I will say that I hope this trophy heralds a new age of football. One in which passing, movement, fitness, and technique are more important than lumping and crunching and defending. I honestly thought Germany would beat the Spaniards, they seemed to have it all; giantness, organizational..ness, and divingness. But all credit to Spain who just simply outplayed them.
Afterwords, Cesc hailed the win as a victory for football and the sweetest of his career.
It was a long time since we have seen a team of that quality trying to play beautiful football – I dont think we’ve seen many teams have success (playing that way). This the best day of my life as a football player.
On the other side of the field Old Sour Grapes had a go at the Ref, Torres, George W. Bush, and the boot boy. You leave the boot boy alone you big German meanie!
In transfer news, Arsenal have been targeted by some dude named Amaury Bischoff: he claims that a deal is imminent and that he’s in London getting a physical. This guy is a complete unknown because he basically played in the Werder Bremen reserves (when he wasn’t in the sick room) last season. He’s also young and a central midfielder: which makes him the perfect Wenger signing. Wenger will probably transform him into a keeper and sell him on for £100m in 2 years.
Seriously, though, if you want to know anything about the kid, you’ll have to rely on reports from die hard supporters like the blogger at Young Guns who interviews another blogger from Germany who has seen Amaury actually play… a little.
Tired of the Adebayor story yet? Well, I AM NOT. I WANT 24/7 ADEBAYOR COVERAGE. What did he eat? What’s the composition of his stool? Will he go to Chelsea? How’s his mom handling all the pressure? Will Obafemi Martins tell Newcastle that he wants a transfer, thus triggering a £13m buy out clause which would free him up to fulfill Wenger’s reported dreams of bringing the world’s shortest striker to Arsenal?
I NEED TO KNOW…
