LDU QUITO vs DEPORTIVO QUITO It was hard to believe that Sunday’s game in La Casa Blanca (the White House) was a derby or the “Clásico Capitalino”. Although the stadium was over half full there wasn’t the fervent atmosphere you would usually associate with a derby. Maybe it was the 11.30am kick off that created […]
On the doubters and nay sayers;
“To those who did not believe: now suck my d**k – I’m sorry ladies for my words – and keep on sucking it. I am either white or black. I will never be grey in my life. You treated me as you did. Now keep on sucking d**ks. I am grateful to my players and to the Argentinian people. I thank no one but them. The rest, keep on sucking d**ks.”
On Scotland ;
“It was nice to get my first goal here in Scotland and it was very special. I feel great. I’m very happy to be back here after all this time and I’m proud to be heading the Argentina national side.
“I’m very much aware of how popular I apparently am in Scotland. It’s nice to see that I have made people happy and if I could do it again then it would be marvellous.
On Pele ;
“I am very much aware of how popular I am and it’s great to think I’ve made them very happy,”
“It’s something that was very special to me. It was nice to start my international career and get my first goal here.
“I feel great. I feel very good. I’m very happy to be back in Scotland after so long away.
The European Championships may provide Cristiano Ronaldo the chance to finally upstage Lionel Messi but only if Portugal go all the way and win the competition. The Portuguese hit man is constantly compared to the serial World Player of the year. At times it seems that no matter what Ronaldo does, Messi pops up to […]
DEPORTIVO QUITO VS EMELEC After last week’s international game it was strange to return to a near empty Atahaulpa Stadium. Gone were the masses of yellow and instead was the blue and red of current Serie A champions Deportivo Quito. Today’s opponents were Emelec of Guayaquil; Ecuadorian giants and Championship contenders. Emelec are one of […]
Ecuador reinvigorated their World Cup qualifying campaign with a deserved victory against a poor Colombian team on Sunday afternoon. “El Tri” dominated the match throughout and finally took the lead via the ex-Birmingham misfit Christian “Chucho” Benitez in 54 minutes; however the Ecuadorians second half profligacy almost cost them dear later when they lost Noboa […]
I doubt i have felt such dreadful heat at a football match. The beer was eventually free-flowing but such was the crowd that i nearly pissed myself in the various que’s
Yesterday, in a friendly game against Brazil Giovanni Dos Santos once again showed why he can be such a mercurial and frustrating footballer. The 23 year old Mexican collected the ball far on the left wing and from a near impossible angle floated the ball over the goalkeeper and into the net. Whether it was […]
It’s a common held belief in Buenos Aires that Lionel Messi is more Catalan than Argentine and he doesn’t play with the belief and passion for the Albiceleste as he does Barcelona. Last night’s game should do much to dispel that particular myth. Ecuador were put to the sword by an imperious man of the […]
