Never Wrong

Sure enough, keeping the pattern going, Ronaldo has been named European Footballer of the Year by France Football Magazine. No surprise for those of you that come checking back for all things footie updates, but get the same old story two weeks running. Sorry about that by the way.

I don't think the gerbil-faced genius really deserves it. Sure he was great during the World Cup (as predicted), but he really has done next to nothing for the remaining 11 months of the year. The results gave a top five of Ronaldo (with 171 points), Roberto Carlos (145), Oliver Kahn (114), Zinedine Zidane (78) and Michael Ballack (67). I have to say I'm a little surprised to see Zidane in there — having missed out on most of the World Cup — I suppose it is a French magazine. That goal in the Champions League final makes him a worthy nominee in my eyes. Disappointingly, it's a World Cup/Champions League finalists only zone, I'd like to see a bit of imagination.

Any Arsenal fans upset at their team's below par performance at the North London Home for the Elderly on Sunday can console themselves that at least they're not fans of Liverpool. Less than a month ago the scousers were topping the table, now they're walking alone below their best mates in blue. I'm going to enjoy Sunday's derby.

News is not cheery for another similarly initialed Premiership club and player. Whilst Leeds battle fiercely with relegation, Lee Bowyer has been charged with stamping on a Malaga player's head. Lovely lad.

And finally, despite his club's resurgence, like a particularly pissed off Phoenix from the flames, there are signs of desperation from Alex Ferguson. Either that, or the sour faced old git has finally developed a sense of humor.
