I am quite surprised with this move, sure he isn’t the most creative footballer in the world, but his ability to fill in anywhere along the back 5 (yes that does include goalkeeper! See below!) makes him very useful. He has been a great servant, but I guess Rafeal and Fabio need to break through, and rightly so.
Here are my favourite O’shea moments:
The ‘Hang on! Did O’shea just do that!?!’ moments:
Video: Liverpool legends (McManaman, Berger & Babb) rubbish warm-up
Earlier this month a host of ex-Liverpool players took part in the 2011 EPL Asian Masters tournament.
The “Liverpool legends” side just missed out on a place in the final despite an array of former talents including Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman, Vladimir Smicer, Mark Wright, Patrik Berger, Phil Babb and Rob Jones.
On this video, Liverpool legends Steve McManaman, Patrick Berger & Phil Babb all illustrate that Kenny Dalglish won’t be sending out a call for them any time soon.
Zidane, Nedved, Ravanelli, Davids & Vialli turn out for a charity Juventus-Torino match
You’ve gotta love seeing ex-Serie A pros take to the field and show that, despite their super-sized waistbands, they still have the magic in their feet, especially Zidane.
Wednesday night in Italy saw a shedload of former top-flight legends take the field to participate in a Juventus versus Torino charity match. The match ended 2-2.
Former Brazilian star Junior gave Torino the lead in the first half and it was doubled early in the second session when Gianluigi Lentini’s shot took a wicked deflection off Mark Iuliano’s backside to end up in the Juve net.
That sparked the Bianconeri into action, and it didn’t take long for the deficit to be halved when Pavel Nedved flicked the ball home from Zidane’s cross in the 54th minute. Fourteen minutes later Sergio Porrini headed home a Grabbi’s cross to equalise for the Old Lady, and happily that’s the way the match ended.
Ex-Manchester United defender David May taunts City fans
In a week largely devoid of football, these are the types of stories which foster attention.
Earlier in the week former Manchester United defender David May was recorded singing a variety of anti Manchester City songs, and the eye-witness video was quickly uploaded on YouTube. The occasion was a charity fundraiser for The Christie – an NHS Foundation Trust is a specialist hospital, mainly concerned with the treatment of cancer and associated diseases - leaving some to wonder whether it was good taste for the ex-pro to involve himself in such shenanigans.
On the video May can be heard singing “If you are a City fan, surrender or you’ll die,” as well as leading the room in the anti Carlos Tevez chant which describes the Argentine as a “money-grabbing whore.”
Likely to be enjoyed by United fans and hated by their City rivals….You have to love David May
You may know Vinnie Jones the legendary captain of the Wimbledon’s crazy gang (where I live)…well you probably know him more from the movies. But the good thing is, is he is still involved with the beautiful game. This is him coaching his sunday league team in America…..its half time and he is clearly not happy…..Quality!
