Sunderland have just signed a top chinese international for 5 million pounds: WY ME

England manager Sven Goran Eriksson told Mackem "super" striker Kevin Phillips that he was thinking about playing him in the next england friendly but may pull him at half time. "Fantastic" said Kevin I usually only get an orange!
Monkey Heed was worried about his team not showing signs of improvement, so he decided to ask Bobby Robson why Newcastle were so good. "That's easy" replies Robson. "We practice everyday against 11 dustbins".
"Oh" replied Monkey Heed.
Two weeks later, Bobby saw Monkey Man in the street and asked him whether the plan had worked. 'Oh no' replied Reid, 'we had to abandon that idea, the Dustbins won 5-0'!

Bobby Robson, Steve McClarren and Peter Reid visited the Angel of the North. They all decided to ask it questions about their clubs.
Bobby says "When will Newcastle United next win a major trophy?" the Angel replied " I guarantee they will finally win the F.A cup next season." "Great!" replies Bobby.
Steve steps up and asks "Will Boro ever win anything?" "Well..." says the Angel "I can't guarantee they will win anything when your around man." "Bloody hell, nout gans my way!" Screamed Steve.
Finally Peter steps up and confidently and asks the same question, the Angel whispers in to peters ear, "Come back tomorrow on your own and I'll give you a hint on what's wrong."
So the next day peter Reid pulls up in his new top of the range Skoda and the Angel says, "Well I'll get to the point first of all you've got Thomas Sorensen in goal (5 minutes later) and finally you've got Kevin Phillips partnering Niall Quinn up front. Basically you've got a team full of Retarded Mackems. Oh, Yes... and if you want to be at a winning club, I heard there's a position as a Janitor at Old Trafford!"

Monkey's heed walks into the dressing room before the mackems bigest game of the season and there's a massive crap in the middle of the floor! "Who's shit on the floor!?!" he says. Quinny stands up and says "Me Gaffer! But I'm not bad in the air!"

Mamelodi sundowns

With a trip to South Africa imminent I thought I might be able to go see a game of footy in Pretoria. Mamelodi sundowns are the local team and by all accounts not bad (for SA domestic footy). The only worrying part is that not too many white folk go to watch footy in South Africa and a prominently black support can be daunting. I did go to a friendly game in Durban many years ago Arsenal against a local team who’s name evades me with age. The game was good even though Arsenal won and the locals were very friendly towards me and made me feel very welcome
Hopefully Ill be able to find me a scout who will look after me and show me around the H. M. Pitjie Stadium as it is called (I think). I don’t have a great head for heights so ill be staying down at pitch level. Can’t wait.

Quality Not Quantity

Once again I find myself onboard the ship while Liverpool plays in another final of sorts for yet more silverware. Fortunately the ship was heading East so our satellite reception was good for the most part. However it did crap out once during the first half to my frustration, the picture was frozen on Mourinho for 5 mins. Not the best mug to be looking at for 5 mins so I was to say for want of a better word fuming.
This did not spoil the thrill of watching a team not for the first time and I’m sure not for last dominating the so called giants of English football. Liverpool was by far the dominating team and the score line of 2-1 did not really do Liverpool justice they really did outplay Chelsea in every area of the field. A sign of things to come no doubt.

Mourinho Quote: "Liverpool had more intensity and pace, qualities that make a team better. They had that and we didn't.

Team Mates

Portugal winger Cristiano Ronaldo has denied asking Argentinian referee Horacio Elizondo to take action against Wayne Rooney during the World Cup quarter-final. Ronaldo, who winked at the Portugal bench following the dismissal.

" Iknow that people will say that the referee sent off Rooney because I spoke to him," said Ronaldo. "I only said to the referee that it was a foul, only that.

This is after the ref had blown his whistle and was allready pointing in the direction of the England half indicating free kick to Portugal. What does he think were stupid? More


Jamie Carragher has spoken of a scene of devastation and disappointment in the dressing room after England were knocked out of the World Cup by Portugal on penalties.
For reasons only Sven-Goran Eriksson will ever be able to explain, Carragher was thrown on as a substitute with just seconds of extra-time remaining to ensure the Liverpool defender could be one of the five penalty takers. He scored with his first attempt, but it was ordered to be re-taken and Ricardo deflected his second effort on to the woodwork.
