Italian job: Pretty Green-Joe Cole eyes up city of fashion giants Milan offer

JOE COLE is to be offered 3 x £3million a year to join Serie A giants AC Milan (best team in football history, founded by the English).
The England midfielder, 29, is a free agent after being released by Chelsea and is also a target for Premier League rivals Arsenal and Tottenham - but he is said to be interested in a move abroad. According to Corriere Dello Sport, England boss Fabio Capello recommended the player as a good buy to his close pal AC Milan chief Adriano Galliani.
Milan's city rivals Inter - now led by former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez - are also said to be interested in Cole, as well as Lazio and Juventus.

well, then he went to poor Liverpool. Fuck off, you and your wife.


A new AC Milan Megastore will be open on Saturday, 3rd July, Corso Vittorio Emanuele II – Galleria San Carlo – Milan. Legend Franco Baresi will meet all the supporters in the store at 3 pm, and for all facebook Milan fans, the 10% off on purchases.

Ashley Cole: I hate England and the fucking people

FLOP Ashley Cole sent a disgraceful message to pals days before flying out to the World Cup - snarling: "I hate England and the fucking people!"
The Chelsea defender shared the astonishing insult with pals using his BlackBerry hours before he boarded a flight to England's pre-World Cup training camp in Austria.
He posted it as his status message, allowing all those designated as his friends to see it.
The jibe appeared under a picture of Cole, 29, sunning himself with his shirt off and a towel over his head.
As he aired his crude views, millions of England supporters were rallying behind Cole and his team-mates - and thousands were spending hard-earned savings to fly to South Africa to cheer them on.
The news of Cole's contempt and lack of commitment will add insult to injury for fans fuming over the abject World Cup performance.
Cole yesterday insisted he WAS totally dedicated to England. He said: "I always try my hardest for England and Chelsea but the intrusion and pressure I feel is making my life hell."

Cole, dumped by ex-wife Cheryl after repeatedly cheating on her and sex-texting women - posted his BlackBerry rant shortly after he started seeing ex-lapdancer Sarah Purnell.
As Cole arrived back in the UK with the rest of the England squad yesterday, Sarah was waiting to see if their relationship will go into extra time.
The mum of one, from Dudley, West Mids, said Cole had texted her from South Africa.
She said: "We said we'll meet when he gets back, but I'm not putting pressure on him."

Defoe: we respect Fabio, his CV is second to none

JERMAIN DEFOE insists Fabio Capello still has the respect of England players.
The striker, 27, scored against Slovenia in the Three Lions' only victory at the World Cup.

But his world came crashing down as they were knocked out by Germany in the last 16.
Despite the disastrous campaign, Tottenham star Defoe has confidence in Italian boss Capello.
He said: "I'd like to think that he has the respect of the players.
"You also have to remember that the strict regime is the way the manager prefers to do things.
"His CV is second to none and he has won titles and trophies with four top European clubs and some fantastic players that way.
"For me personally, he gave me an opportunity and I'd like to think that I took it in that Slovenia game.
"Every manager has their own different routine before a game.
"With Mr Capello we'd watch a video of the opposition and we'd go through their strengths and weaknesses."
Capello claimed his players were tired after a long Premier League season with no winter break.
But Defoe admitted: "I take the point that it can't be fatigue as the Germans in particular have played more games than us.
"Maybe it's because so many players have taken on so much pressure to live up to expectations that it affected their normal game.
"There was boredom out there. But then players are used to that from being away with their clubs.
"And that soon went when the games started and we could break up our days by watching them.
Defoe also hit back at suggestions the players do not care about playing for their country.
He said: "I can understand the level of anger and frustration that we as England players have returned home to.
"I accept it has been a bitterly disappointing World Cup campaign from a group of players of whom everyone expected so much.
"Personally I wish I could have done more to help the country than just the goal against Slovenia.
"I remain convinced that had I played in the earlier two games we would have got off to a better start than we did.
"And that's why it hurts so much to hear people saying we don't care. I care. I care passionately.
"I won't have anyone telling me I don't have pride in pulling on an England shirt and pride in scoring goals for my country.
"Pride in representing my family, my club and the people that have had faith in me all my life."

Southgate: Capello's got to stay + french Wenger guns down Fabio + Beckham will play for Euro qualifiers

Football rules these days. 

GARETH SOUTHGATE says it is time to stop blaming the manager for England's woeful displays. 

While Chris Kamara said Capello should go, without giving solutions, ex-defender Southgate (57 caps for the Three Lions) reckons the cold hard fact is our players are simply not good enough (as Noel Gallagher said some days ago). He said: "We can't keep blaming the manager. 

"By appointing Fabio Capello, the FA tried to buy the World Cup. There were things in the camp that were not right.
"We had Sven Goran Eriksson, who had a great record at club level and it's the same with Capello, who's done well at whichever club he's been at.
"We keep talking about how we have the best players in the world but a lot of them haven't performed.
"The cold facts are they aren't good enough. If you look at the performances in South Africa - not just against Germany - we weren't up to scratch."

ARSENE WENGER has brushed aside Fabio Capello's claims that England's World Cup squad were "tired" and needed a winter break.

The french Arsenal boss — who did not have any of his players in the 23-man party in South Africa — believes it was more to do with England's failure to cope with the weight of expectation. "Was that physical fatigue or a mental reason? I do not know", he said.

Noel Gallagher: fuck off Wenger and his socialist football.

DAVID BECKHAM wants to help restore England's football credibility by reclaiming his spot for the Euro qualifiers.

Becks, 35, was ruled out of the 2010 World Cup through injury and helped out on the coaching side in South Africa.
But his rehab has gone well and he is targeting the 2012 qualifier against Bulgaria on September 3 and the trip to Switzerland four days later.
The veteran former skipper believes he still has plenty to offer England and his ability to retain possession and pass incisively was sorely missed at the finals.
A source close to Beckham said: "David loves playing for England and is optimistic he'll be ready for the qualifiers in September."

FA member wants Fabio to stay: "He has only lost one game"

Fabio Capello has discovered he still has friends at the FA as the soap opera over his England future took a new twist.

The Italian revealed after the Three Lions' disastrous World Cup exit that football chiefs at Wembley wanted two weeks to decide whether he should stay or go.
Capello stressed he wished to stay on but did not know whether he would be given the chance.

However, Phil Gartside, a top FA board member and pal of Dave Richards - the Club England chairman who has the biggest say on Capello's future - has broken ranks to pledge his support for the manager.
Gartside, who is also the chairman of Bolton, has stayed on in South Africa for a family holiday while England's World Cup failures and Richards have returned to London.
But the Reebok gaffer is keeping on top of developments and sees no reason why Capello should be removed.
He emphasised his views were personal and he was not speaking for the FA as a whole - but Capello jetted off on his holidays in the knowledge he has some significant support.
Gartside told SunSport: "I'm saying Capello is the right man for the job. He has only lost one game. That is my opinion.
"I don't know that there's a decision to be made, is there? He's got a contract and that's it.
"It's my opinion he should carry on.
"Yes, I get on very well with Dave Richards but I'm not speaking on anyone else's behalf. Personally, I don't think his future is up in the air.
"I'm in South Africa and Dave's back in England. I don't know the outcome."
Sources close to Capello are adamant that he wants to see the England job through to Euro 2012 and he is not just holding out for a pay-off.
He is said to be "more angry, more determined and more focused" to build a successful England team and believes it can be done.
Capello wants "revenge" for the fiasco in South Africa and to prove he is the right man to lead England.
However, while Gartside's support is important and has improved Capello's chances of staying, it does not mean he is assured of keeping his job.
There is still a lot of talking going on within the corridors of power at the FA, although a decision may be made quicker than the fortnight Capello talked about.
They also need to have another candidate in mind if the Italian is shown the door.
Roy Hodgson was high on the FA's wish list but the Fulham boss is set to join Liverpool tomorrow. But it is understood Blackburn boss and former Bolton chief Sam Allardyce would answer his country's call if he was offered the job.
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is the bookies' favourite but the FA are concerned about a court case hanging over him for alleged tax evasion.
Big Sam was interviewed by the FA along with Martin O'Neill and Steve McClaren when the FA were searching for Sven Goran Eriksson's replacement in 2006.
McClaren won the race and then failed to get the team to the Euro 2008 finals and was sacked as the Wally with the Brolly.

Ian Wright: main cause of England's failure is not Capello

article by Ian Wright
(for those who don't know: he's also the father of Shaun Wright-Phillips, Man City player, he adopted him)

England's embarrassing World Cup went from bad to farce yesterday as it was revealed Sir Dave Richards, the chairman of the FA's international committee, sorry Club England, will make an announcement about Fabio Capello's future by July 12.
Should the Italian be allowed to stay on as coach? Or has the time come to get rid of him and give the job to an Englishman, such as Harry Redknapp or Roy Hodgson?
To be honest, it does not really matter. Because the main cause of England's failure in South Africa is not Capello or his tactics.
Nor is it his players who undoubtedly under-performed and failed to live up to their pre-match billing.
No, the No 1 reason our squad is back on home soil this morning is the structure of the game in this country.
And until there is a radical rethink domestically, we will continue to suffer on the international stage - regardless of who is in charge.
We could appoint the best coach in the world, English or otherwise. But if he does not have the pool of talented players to select his squad and team from, then he is always going to have to operate with one hand tied behind his back.
Capello had only 44 % of players in the Premier League to choose from.
A coach can only work with the tools available to him.
Capello never had those tools, in Sunday's 4-1 defeat by Germany or before.
Germany's team contained four players from their side which beat us 4-0 in the Euro Under-21s final 12 months ago.
We had one - James Milner. Where are our rising young stars, who will form the spine of the England team for years to come?
A few months ago when Germany coach Joachim Low was thinking of throwing the likes of Mesut Ozil and Jerome Boateng into World Cup duty, Capello was trying to persuade Jamie Carragher and Paul Scholes out of retirement.
That is nothing against those two warhorses who have always served their country with distinction. And it is nothing against Capello - what other choices did he have?
No, it is a sad indictment on the lack of English players coming through and for that you have to look at the clubs and the way our game is run.
England have just been crowned Under-17 champions of Europe. How many of those will be in the full squad in a few years? None probably. Maybe one or two at best.
But once these starlets get on the pro circuit, it seems clubs would rather buy average foreigners instead of investing in home-grown talent. It may have made the Premier League the best division in the world, but it has turned England into one of the poorest national sides.
I'm not moaning about the influx of quality overseas stars. Players like Gianfranco Zola, Jurgen Klinsmann, Dennis Bergkamp, Patrick Vieira, Emmanuel Petit et al, who have all improved our game.
But there are a number of foreign stars who manage to earn themselves contracts, even though in reality they are no better than the English-born players denied a chance.
That is because their club is either swayed by the glamour of an exotic-sounding signing or his willingness to do a job for far less money than the home-grown rookie IS demanding.
The lack of English players is not all down to managers. Chairmen and owners must carry some of the responsibility too.
Managers are given little time to nurture home-grown talent. At many clubs, youth policies are not high on the list of priorities. And maybe you can understand why.
I mean if Arsenal are not providing one player for Capello's 23, and often no Englishmen at all in their Premier League matches, why should other clubs bother?
Competing in the Champions League is all that matters to top clubs. That is why they prefer expensive foreigners to cultivating local young stars.
And the ironic thing is that, despite this, the Germans - or rather Bayern Munich - still did better than Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool in last season's competition.
Germany taught us a lesson on the pitch but we also need to learn from them off it. It was not so long ago the Bundesliga was reportedly dying on its backside, unable to pay the high wages and attract big names.
So the German clubs decided to invest in their youth systems rather than importing. The German national team is clearly thriving thanks to the wealth of talent the country's top division is producing. You can't say the same about us.
Any English player who plays well for a few games or scores a few goals is now touted for an England cap that used to be so hard to win.
I really believed we were going to do something special in South Africa.
I told everybody we were going to win the World Cup and I believed it.
I realise now my confidence was nothing more than blind faith and the only consolation is the Germans did not beat us 5-1.
But I feel so let down.
And while our big clubs are worried more about discovering revenue streams instead of the best young local players, England will sadly always remain second best.
And we should brace ourselves for more embarrassment, disappointment and heartache.

crying crocodile Blatter says sorry to England and opens door for video technology

The incident has led to renewed goals for goal-line technology and Blatter admits world football's governing body will look into the matter.
He said: "It is obvious that after the experience so far in this World Cup it would be a nonsense to not reopen the file of technology at the business meeting of the International FA Board (IFAB) in July.
"The only thing I can do is yesterday I have spoken to the two federations — England and Mexico — directly concerned by referees mistakes.
"I have expressed to them apologies and I understand they are not happy and that people are criticising.
And Blatter added: "It happened in 1966 and then 44 years later — though it was not the same."
Despite the ongoing debate about bringing the beautiful game in line with other sports using technology to rule on controversial decisions, Blatter insists the introduction of video replays is not an option.
He said: "The only principle we are going to bring back for discussion is goal-line technology."

E' come chiudere la stalla quando i buoi sono fuggiti... more or less: it's like closing the stable after the horse has bolted. Because these things don't happen so often.

usual Blatter blames Italy and divine justice steals 7 Milan World Cups

Alex Del Piero in the changing rooms when Noel Gallagher went to meet him 

Today shit Blatter (he's ALWAYS against Italy as french Platini is always against England, and didn't even give us the World Cup when we won it in 2006, and this year they sent a FRENCH, Vieira, to give it back, incredible) reading a sheet complained about Italy and france not having young players under 23 years old (Italy 1, but not using him). Man, you are the Fifa president, and you should give solutions, not statistics. On the contrary Fifa did all the contrary, giving more problems to young players. This World Cup is shite and in his opinion it's our fault and not the referees fault.

Police in Johannesburg have confirmed replica World Cup trophies (made in Milan) have been stolen from FIFA's temporary headquarters. National police commissioner Bheki Cele said: "We knew that there was a theft and we are investigating." Italian newspaper La Repubblica claims the trophies were replicas of the cup that will take centre stage at the Soccer City final in Johannesburg on July 11. As well as the trophies, sports equipment was also lifted by the thieves. The police also confirmed that 316 people, 207 of South African origin, have been arrested for World Cup-related crimes since the start of the tournament.

Tonight another irregular goal by Spain... (the 2nd for them in this World Cup, 3 irregular for Argentina, 1 irregular for Brazil, 1 against Italy + incredible facts for Germany against England)'s all already written... it's called: MONEY...

My wife warned me last night, "If you order one of those annoying vuvuzelas off the internet, I'll never speak to you again."

So I ordered a dozen, just to make sure.

Anyone know why the Germans have objected to one of their World Cup games kicking off at 19:45?

What do you call a lifelong Chelsea fan?
A seven year old.

What's the difference between Wayne Rooney and an ambitious person?

Capello: "I need more time". The players are with him

^_^ the Queen calling the Secret Intelligence Services... 
the referees were from Uruguay so now "anyone but Uruguay" :) 
The same blind linesman stopped a clear chance for Rooney with an inexistent offside. 

Don't go away, "...I need more time just to make things right... damn my situation and the games I have to play" (vs Germany, Argentina, Spain, etc. instead of Ghana, Uruguay... :)
Just 1 goal more was enough to be first in the group

The Italian, who refuses to resign, has defended his players and is standing firm in the face of intense pressure from both the England faithful and the media.
Speaking at his final press conference in South Africa, the former AC Milan and Real Madrid boss said: "I spoke this morning with [Club England chairman] Sir Dave Richards and he told me he needs two weeks to decide my future. I said I can be the manager for the next season but they have to decide. I want to stay on, absolutely. I like this job and I need to be England manager. I have got a contract and I refused a lot of opportunities to be a manager from a lot of important clubs (i.e.: Inter Milan, n.b.M.) because I would like to stay here. I know a lot of changes are needed, but I know what I have to do to qualify for Euro 2012."
Capello believes his players flopped in South Africa due to the demands of a gruelling domestic season. But he refused to lay the blame on England's early exit on the misfiring Wayne Rooney, who failed to net once during the campaign. "My players were really tired at this competition, they were not the players we saw during qualification. Rooney played well during some games but you cannot speak about just one player. All of the players were not as fast or good as I know they can be. The players trained really well but every time we played they did not perform the way I know they can."

Gerrard and other ones said they want him to stay.
For the first time Joseph Blatter now favors an "accurate and not complicated technology"... but as usual it's only words.

SCANDAL: ROBBED !!! It would have been a different match

I wonder how is it possible in the year 2010, in the World Cup, not in the suburbs of a city with kids playing, to be blind (4 referees...the main one from Uruguay), they didn't see a goal clear as the sun. Incredible. I was fuckin' angry. 
EVERYBODY has seen it, the players, the managers, the supporters, from every point in the stadium, but not the referees, how is it possible?
It was 2-1 and obviously England players were attacking, with many chances and playing well, with this regular goal by Lampard it would have been a totally different game, England wouldn't have attacked so much and so Germany scored a couple of goals in counter-attack.
Having seen what they usually do at Fifa, and what a FAKE plastic this World Cup is (so many irregular goals, and this was in), this is another confirmation and I suspect there's something behind this...
And there were also some strange decisions about offsides... For example: at the beginning there was Rooney running alone towards the goalkeeper and they decided for an offside while it was so clearly a GERMAN player touching the ball, and it wasn't offside. The same linesman who should have seen the disallowed goal... Germans how much did you pay him?
I wish they'll make Germany pay for this, for example giving a penalty to Argentina (but they already had 3 IRREGULAR GOALS...). I think the English Football Association should ask Fifa to repeat the match, or at least complain against them.
England out of the World Cup, with Rooney scoring not even 1 goal...
Noel was the lucky mascot for Italy World Champion, and MICK JAGGER at the stadium today was the unlucky bugger...
I will add more photos and stuff...

Now the Germans are talking about "justice done for 1966"... how ignorant, the game was totally different, and England scored another goal, and it was not the other team scoring. Besides that was not clear, this is SO CLEAR and that was 1966, it's incredible this is happening today with all the technologies we have.

Capello and Beckham angry

England and Italy love each other too much

That's the real reason why England team with Italian manager is out of the World Cup. We both get nervous when things go wrong, because both of us would like they went great.
We both failed together, it's not all Capello's fault, it's not all the team's fault. Now I hear people saying things like "go away Capello, an Italian can't understand English football"... it's quite ridiculous, saying that now, too easy, and there are always so many Italian managers there, and doing great, as Capello in qualifying, Ancelotti at his first year in Premier League, etc. And England had English managers but then they were not so good, a Swedish manager and it was over also for him. Now the English tabloids will surely blame Capello, 'cause they search someone to blame, to make "big news" and sell newspapers. I'm so sorry for this.
About the players I could say they made too many mistakes, and when the star of the team, Rooney, does nothing special for all the matches, it becomes difficult. Let's blame someone: the vuvuzela ahahaha We both can't stand that, we both love great music ^_^
Capello said he's staying as England manager, and I wish so, but I don't think they're gonna keep him. They should, as they do in England with club managers, usually keeping them for many years.
If I have to find a reason why I should be a little bit happy in this sad situation, it's about some English girls I speak with, sometimes: they are usually teenagers or so, often quite stupid, quite bitches ahaha, who have a bad behaviour towards me. And it's because they're so, on the contrary usually English people behave very well with me, very kind, as also today, I met an English family.
As almost all the English girls, those teenagers care about football. So, this is for them:
home, out of the World Cup as usual since 1970, 40 years. Learn some manners, then you can win something, miss Oxford.

Patsy cancels autobiography release

Patsy Kensit has cancelled the release of her tell-all autobiography just weeks before it was meant to hit the shelves. 
The 42-year-old Holby City star told publishers that she was not happy with the final quality of the tell-all book, but according to the Daily Mail Kensit was pressured into scrapping plans by Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher, who wanted to spare their 10-year-old son Lennon from details of their three-year marriage.
A friend of Kensit said: "The publishers wanted all the juicy details about their marriage and why it broke down, and Liam said he didn’t think it was right that Lennon should have to read that when he’s older.
Lennon’s dad thought that Patsy would end up regretting the book and he told her it was not too late to can it.
"Patsy had high hopes for the book and it was a real warts-and-all account, but she has agreed to shelve it for the time being."
The book was meant to reveal all about Kensit's 4 ex-husbands, Big Audio Dynamite musician
Dan Donovan married in 1988; Simple Minds star Jim Kerr, with whom she has a son, James, in 1992 (Oasis song: Little James), Gallagher, whom she married in 1997, and DJ Jeremy Healey, who she married in April 2009 and split from this February.


Patsy Kensit @ Italian Sanremo 1987, look what happens to her dress: it was a scandal for those times

Paul Weller: Liam is a philosopher, Noel is down to earth

Paul, Oasis & friends

He has written tracks that have inspired generations, been credited with kicking off the mod revival movement, and scored countless hits in his native UK with his bands The Jam, The Style Council and as a solo artist.
Paul Weller is not resting on his past success. He has just released his tenth solo album Wake Up the Nation, it doesn't give the listener a moment to become bored. Weller has a go at modern pastimes too. The title track features the lyrics: "Get your face off the Facebook and turn off your phone." "Maybe if you're 14 or 16 it might have some value or some relevance," he says. "But everyone's doing it, really. There are always benefits to technology, obviously. But I think also there's a certain element of humanism that gets lost along the way."
One element of pop culture Weller does have an interest in, however, is fashion. With their dapper suits and neat shoes, The Jam were a sartorial as well as musical influence to a generation of bands. Weller's friend and fan Liam Gallagher recently started a fashion line, Pretty Green, and invited the Modfather to design some clothes for it.
Weller is friends with both of Oasis's Gallagher brothers, whose split last year was allegedly exacerbated when older brother Noel poked fun at Liam's clothing label.
"They are very different, what can I say? Well, they're both lovely, they're both my friends, so I have to be careful what I say, really. Liam has got his own very definite vision of the world, of how the world works and his place in it. And I can't say what that is because I couldn't even hazard a guess, but he has got it anyway. And I guess you could say Noel's a bit more down to earth. No, he's a lot more down to earth. I love to hear Liam's theories on life. It's different. It's like listening to an ancient philosopher. I think he's really fascinating."
