Random Footy (or Soccer)


  • The famous, most expensive, (and overly greased if I do say so myself) player in the modern world of football, Cristiano Ronaldo, has been suspended two games for breaking Malaga's Patrick Mtiliga's nose during a match on Sunday evening.  I was watching this game and sort of cringed a little when it happened.  It was a foul move (and increased my dislike for him).  Not only has he been suspended, CR has also been fined $843 US and Real Madrid was fined $243 US.
  • A footballer from the Premier League (EPL) was kidnapped and dangled over a cliff by his legs by a couple of members of a very well-known northern crime family.  Full Report 
  •  Liverpool FC's (and my personal favourite Red) Steven Gerrard will be transferred before the trade month ends - only not in the sense that we think.  For £150,000, Stevie G's waxwork will be moved to Madame Tussauds Museum.  Liverpool report 
  • David Dunn has agreed on a stay instead of a transfer.  Dunn has signed a new deal keeping him with the Blackburn Rovers for two-and-a-half years, keeping him till the end of the 2011-2012 season.
  • Going with the Rovers for a moment, they have also agreed on a deal with West Ham United for striker, Benni McCarthy.
  • Chris Smalling has agreed and signed with Manchester United for the 2010-11 season from Fulham FC.  Premier League report 
  • Craig Gardner will move from Aston Villa to Birmingham City for a mere £3 million.  Gardner will be paid the total of the fee over four-and-a-half years with the Blues.  Little bit of good news for him since it was the club he grew up idolising.  Premier League report 
  • Vito Mannone (who?), Arsenal FC's goalkeeper (one of them) has agreed on a new long-term contract with the Gunners.  The U-21 international has made only 8 appearances with the club this season and is repaying the faith with this new contract.
  • Jumping 2 years from now... the draw for the UEFA 2012 Euros will be held on the 7 February at the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw, Poland.  If you want to follow live, tune in on the 7th at 12:00 CET (3 a.m. PT/6 a.m ET).
