We Are The Champions !! (Queen)

Javier Zanetti holds aloft the trophyFinally, after being tired of waiting ’til the end of the season, I found my favorite team declared as the champions of Lega Calcio! emoticonI don’t give a damn about any negative comments. These are our years! Hopefully they can win the final match of Coppa Italia too, so they can be double winners this year.. emoticonForza Inter!

We Are The Champions

I’ve paid my dues
Time after time
I’ve done my sentence
But committed no crime
And bad mistakes
I’ve made a few
and I’ve had my share of sand
Kicked in my face
But I’ve come through
And I need to go on and on and on and on

We are the champions – my friends
And we’ll keep on fightin’ till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions of the world

I’ve taken my bows
And my curtain calls
You’ve brought me fame and fortune
And everything that goes with it
I thank you all
But it’s been no bed of roses no pleasure cruise
and I consider it a challenge before all human race
That I’ll never lose
And I need to go on and on and on and on

We are the champions – my friends
And we’ll keep on fightin’ till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions of the world

We are the champions – my friends
And we’ll keep on fightin’ till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions..

Barcelona 0 – 0 Manchester United

Lionel Messi - Carlos TevezWhat a resenting-usual match. That was what I thought as a Barça fan about the first half of last night match, FC Barcelona versus Manchester United FC, at Camp Nou Stadium, Barcelona. I only saw a usual behavior of Barcelona team. They looked suppressing their opponents almost all the time, but without any good finishing at all emoticon. They acted like they had been superior by one or two goals ahead United and no longer need to score at the game. In fact, they had to maximize the opportunity of playing at their home ground at first leg. And I don’t think the Catalan team could win the second leg easily, regarding United’s fantastic records of home matches.

Nevertheless, The Red Devils played quite well emoticon. As the visitors, they applied Alex Ferguson‘s tactics remarkably. They waited on Barcelona’s attacks patiently, thickened the defense wall as the adversaries dominated the ball possession, and then gave fast dangerous shocking counter attacks through Wayne Rooney, Carlos Tevez, and the superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. They seemed to be downhearted after Ronaldo failed to score from the penalty kick given by the referee due to Gabriel Milito‘s handball, but they amazingly came up moments after, and then gave a strong resistance.

Riding My Bike to the Countryside

My old bikeI rode my old bike again this morning. I left at 6:20, after watching a quite entertaining football match on TV, Real Zaragoza versus FC Barcelona. Thank God Barcelona won the game, so I got no more disappointment after watching Arsenal beaten in FA Cup last night. The weather was so cold when I left home, but unlike last mornings, it didn’t rain. I brought my breakfast in my "The Killers" bag and enough money to buy newspaper and mineral water. I planned to have my breakfast at the countryside, far from the city’s polluted air. Hmmm.. emoticon Continue reading

Mancini Defends Team After Draw

Roberto ManciniIn the aftermath of the 1-1 draw with Udinese, Inter coach Roberto Mancini indicated that his team has problems taking the literal heat of summer, if not the metaphorical heat of the Serie A kitchen. In any case, the coach isn’t too downheartened, and feels his side just needs to take its chances…

Inter coach Roberto Mancini was made to sweat as his ten-man side tried to hold on to a one goal lead against Udinese, only to concede an equaliser in the last minute.

In his post match reaction, the manager partially blamed the summer weather for his side’s failure to defend its advantage.

"I’ve always said that, in August, we cannot play at 15:00; we should play at 18:00," he fumed.

"Instead, we play in the early afternoon in the summer, and we see 20:00 games postponed in January."

But he focused mostly on the game, and took some positives from the result, despite slipping up as he seeks to defend his side’s title.

"In the first half, we had plenty of chances to kill off the tie, but didn’t take them," he said.

"We’re just starting the season, and with heat like this, I can understand that the performance was not the greatest one."

Referring to Julio Cesar’s deserved red card for deliberate handball, he added, "When you go down to ten men, to suffer like that is really expected.

"We paid for having numerical inferiority in these conditions."

Inter fell to a last-minute strike, credited to Asamoah but apparently taking a deflection off Cordoba, after a Pepe corner. Dejan Stankovic had earlier opened the scoring for Inter.
