passive duck Elton John says Oasis are not men

LONDON - In these days I was ignoring him, you know, when men become old they say more and more bullshit, that's called senile dementia. But reading about this everywhere, it just got on my nerves. I even quoted him 'cause I used to appreciate him as a musician, for example I love "Your song", "Tiny dancer", "Rocket man".
As a person, do you remember when he said Jesus was gay... says a lot about Elton John. He's married...to a man. What's wrong with it?! people say. Absolutely nothing: they just fuck themselves in their arses, very natural indeed. That's how many people were born: from an ass.
Then they say you hate him because he's gay: so how is he allowed to speak about other people being men... when he's not!
He's a... duck.
ahahahahahahaha
As though I accused a woman saying she's not a woman, when I'm not too.
Oasis, having been the best band and attacking many people, attracted the hate and jealousy from many. Oasis often used words as "them gays", "you fag", etc., so of course Elton John couldn't be a fan of Oasis.
He said U2, Muse (!), Coldplay (!) are men, while Oasis are "stupid SODS" and still boys with ALL the rest of the bands, and because Oasis threw away their success in America in 1995 or so... They came back there so many times, no need to say that, Sir. You're a bit retard eh? Oasis make him terribly nervous.
He also said "It's only the cream that rises to the top. It's always the ones with the best work ethic and the best material and the best attitude". No. Oasis had a bigger success, and if you're moralistic in rock music, then you have to throw away so many great bands. Real rockers are bad boys.
Of course, dear Donald Duck: there are men, boys, and also old gays... You're jealous 'cause you're old, you faggot.
Oasis are not men: Oasis stay young!!

In late 2006, Noel bore the brunt of a verbal attack from Elton John, who took offence to Gallagher describing him as one of a number of "precious" celebrities who shield themselves from normal public life, saying, "Life is a great thing, why shut yourself away from it? I can't understand people like Elton John…" John struck back saying, "After what fucking Noel Gallagher said about me I couldn't give a shit about Oasis… He's just such a tosser, and he looks like Parker from Thunderbirds."
Gallagher's friend Sergio Pizzorno of Kasabian defended Gallagher saying "Elton's just a fat man in a tracksuit. Whereas anything that comes out of Noel's mouth is absolute genius. Noel is the last man you want to start with. He's so quick he can destroy anyone. Elton John needs to watch out."

Pretty Green features on the cover of Drapers Magazine

LONDON - Liam Gallagher gave a brilliant interview as this months cover-star of Drapers magazine, discussing Pretty Green landing the 'Menswear Brand of the Year' at last weeks Drapers Fashion Awards 2010.
The rock star’s brand has swaggered into the menswear market, but the ex Oasis singer is sure it won’t be a one-hit wonder.
"I don't do offices mate, I'm not Ricky Gervais" says Liam, instantly brushing aside claims by his collegues that he spends about a day a week in the HQ of Pretty Green, the menswear label he founded 18 months ago.

behind the scenes of the FA Cup draw video



LONDON - Behind the scenes footage of the FA Cup 3rd round draw featuring Noel Gallagher and Sergio Pizzorno who confirmed their status as 'supreme beings' by engineering fate and setting up their dream FA Cup tie on Sunday.
Manchester City fan Gallagher, of Oasis fame, and die-hard Leicester City supporter Pizzorno, the creative force behind Kasabian, were stunned when their fantasy fixture became a reality.
The creative pair were at Wembley to make the draw for the Third Round Proper and the song-writing duo could not have written a better version of events.
The Kasabian axe-man, who regularly performs in front of tens of thousands of fans, admitted that the co-incidence shredded his already jangling nerves.
Noel has said that he was more nervous drawing the FA Cup third round balls than he was playing live with Oasis.
"What where the odds on that, its unbelievable!" Gallagher said. "I am blown away by that, when I turned the ball around I nearly dropped it. I was more nervous after that then when I walked out on stage here at Wembley. The odds were astronomical."
Pizzorno said: "I was really nervous before the draw. I kept having visions that I was going to drop the bag and have to chase all the balls around the floor!"
He added: "Once I made that draw I completely lost it, I don’t remember pulling the next 10 balls out, I didn’t know what was going on. It was psychedelic."
The Leicester City vs Manchester City FA Cup game will take place on January 8 or 9.

2018 World Cup sabotage, Beckham&Cameron last-minute battle

LONDON - The BBC were last night accused of sabotaging England's World Cup bid - just 3 days before our fate will be decided.
Despite pleas not to broadcast, the Beeb went ahead with a controversial Panorama investigation into world soccer's governing body, FIFA.
Incredibly the programme only re-hashed old claims that may now seriously antagonise FIFA delegates England desperately need on their side.
And it leaves Prime Minister David Cameron and bid From Back Page ambassadors, including David Beckham, facing a desperate last-minute battle to repair the damage.
Fears were mounting last night that Africa's Issa Hayatou and FIFA vice-president Jack Warner will now refuse to vote for England in Zurich on Thursday, when the decision on where the tournament will be staged is made.
Panorama accused Hayatou, along with South American football head Nicolas Leoz and Brazil's Ricardo Teixeira of taking massive back-handers.
Hayatou was accused of receiving £13,000 in bungs and Paraguayan Leoz £450,000. Teixeira was said to have links to a firm which received £6.1million.
But the allegations refer only to a period between 1989 and 1999.
And, while Warner was not implicated in the back-handers claim, Panorama branded him a ticket-tout - again an old allegation.
The Prime Minister is to meet Warner today to try to smooth over the waters.
The 2018 bid team were furious at the timing of the investigation which they believe trawled over a lot of old ground.
They labelled the programme "unpatriotic," "muck-raking," "not relevant to the bidding process," and "not in the public interest."
Andy Anson, the chief executive of the 2018 bid team, said: "Of course I'm disappointed. It's a small group of 22 or 23 voters. If you hurt one, it has an impact on others, that's inevitable. It won't win us any votes."
But the bid team remain confident. Beckham said: "There are many people like Prince William who have been working hard.
"At the end of the day it is down to what the bid team have done."

Monza 2011 +Milan most expensive city in the world

MILAN - Tickets for the Formula 1 race already available from now! If you get them soon, you save money.
see here: www.monzanet.it/en/tickets/8 

As you may have read around recently, they say Milan is the most expensive city in the world. 
When I read stuff about money I never believe at first. One day you're the worst in this, the other day worst in that, one day you're even the city most visited by aliens, it also depends on who's the one saying those things. Jealous ones are always ready to throw mud on you.
Of course Milan is not cheap and it's expensive: but "most expensive in the world" could be for tourists. Shopping in expensive fashion places or having a meal in a luxurious restaurant in the centre. Then so many cities are so expensive.
Watching the film "Blue Moon rising" about Manchester City, I noticed a sentence they said: we never left the city. Me too, I always lived in Milan: when sometimes I tried to live in other places (but for job), I came back immediately and/or angry (where the fuck have I been to?). In the end your city is your city.
And if Milan is really so expensive for tourists, then visit me :P

Barcelona 5 - cheat Mourinho/diving Ronaldo 0

BARCELONA - Breaking news. When a photo says more than words:
57 minutes, Barcelona-Real Madrid 4-0 (could be 9-0), now 5-0.
The fall of the Portuguese Thieves.
Real should play with 9 players, 2 red cards not given, the referee feels pity for them.
Before the match Mourinho said: the referee is for Barça. Yes.
Very nervous game, Real could only use violence, as they're not able to play football.
Sergio Ramos could break a leg to Messi.

Gillespie backs Beady Eye and Kate Moss is not recognised by bouncers

LONDON - If yer name's not down, you ain't coming in - even if your name is Kate Moss and you're like the most famous face EVER!
Bungling bouncers at Primal Scream's Screamadelica 20th anniversary gig refused to believe the model when she told them she was best buddies with frontman Bobby Gillespie, and she was left standing in the cold while they checked out her claims.
A friend told us: "Kate was obviously mortified that she had to wait outside but she took it all in her stride.
ahahahaha
"She had a bit of a moan once she got in - mainly about being stuck outside in such cold weather."
After the gig, Kate dragged her mates around the corner to the launch of Wyld Bar to cheer herself up at the show's afterparty.
Grabbing three tequila and watermelon shots from a waitress, Kate headed for the dancefloor with other half Jamie Hince. He bopped a little awkwardly to Primal Scream's Loaded before plonking himself down in a VIP booth for a natter with Jade Jagger.
He clearly couldn't keep up with his boozing bird.
As he sat on the sidelines Kate necked shot after shot before popping out for a fag with hat designer Philip Treacy.
And as the spirits moved her she threw some shapes with Vivienne Westwood's son Joseph Corré.
The pair were later spotted locked in a deep and meaningful conversation outside the W Hotel bash before necking more tequilas and dancing til 3am.
Poor old Jamie just stuck it out in his sulky corner. Meanwhile Liam Gallagher was hanging round with Bobby Gillespie: he hopes Liam achieves a huge success with his new venture Beady Eye.
The singer is yet to hear the band's first track 'Bring The Light' but insists he is a big fan of the 'Songbird' singer and is confident he will make a rocking album with his bandmates.
He said: "I love Liam and I love Noel and I wish them both the best of luck in their new musical explorations. I don't understand measuring people against what they did formerly. Either it rocks or it doesn't rock. I hope it's successful for Liam."

Liam's off the booze... well, sort of :)

LONDON - Liam Gallagher says he’s no longer a rock wild man after giving up booze and parties.
Mad for it Liam is bored of late nights and finally feels ready to rid his life of Cigarettes and Alcohol.
But the singer, 38, had a final fling watching hedonistic pals Primal Scream in London at the weekend.
Despite downing a fair few with his Beady Eye bandmates and Jarvis Cocker, 47, afterwards at W Hotel’s swanky new Wyld bar, Liam really wasn’t feeling it.
He told Playlist’s own party girl Halina Watts, right: “It’s all right here but I haven’t really been out for 24 years. Everyone thinks they’re so cool.
“I could be somewhere else to be honest –at home or with my mates.
“I don’t do it as much as I used to. I just can’t be bothered with these parties any more.”
Liam’s descent into teetotalism has been building up for some time.
Earlier this year he admitted: “I don’t drink as much as I used to but when I go, I fuckin’ go. I’ll be the last fuckin’ one standing.”
Liam was chuffed his first post-Oasis gigs with Beady Eye sold out in 30 minutes last week.
Warning not to expect any Oasis songs on the March tour, Liam told Kyle Falconer, 23, from Scottish rockers The View: “We’re buzzing. Beady Eye are real rock’n’ roll – none of this standing around shoe gazing shit.”
Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie, 38, agrees.
He said: “I love Liam and I love Noel and I wish them both luck. I hope it’s successful for Liam.”
Liam wasn’t the only Beady Eye member sounding off. Bassist Andy Bell, 40, was overheard saying: “Let’s get out of here. I really want to find a kebab shop.”
Now are you boys sure you haven’t had a few too many after all?

FA Cup draw in Noel's hands: City no.23

LONDON - City fan Noel Gallagher will either owe Roberto Mancini an explanation or will receive a vote of thanks after tomorrow’s FA Cup 3rd round draw.
The rock legend, a regular at Blues home and away games, is charged with picking out the teams in the 6pm draw at Wembley Stadium.

Manchester City will be number 23 in the bag with other notables Arsenal, Chelsea (11), Liverpool (22), Manchester United (24), Spurs (39) and Stoke (36). Dover and York are 63 and 64 respectively.

more on Beady Eye, Liam: we created Beady Eye when still on (Oasis) fire

LONDON - Tom Meighan (last evening @ Pretty Green store) has revealed that he'd listened to part of Liam Gallagher's new material from his Beady Eye project in a hotel room about three months ago. He said he liked what he'd heard, even though it was unmastered. "I've heard Liam's record and it's fantastic," he revealed. "What he's doing is amazing.
"He was the frontman of Oasis. He's got nothing to prove any more. I love him and adore him but it's so not Oasis at all."
Liam named the band, and that rehearsals began with Beady Eye a few weeks after Noel left with the understanding that they would leave Oasis behind for good and play only new material, originated by Gallagher, Archer and Bell, and collectively worked up into co-written group compositions.
Liam on moving on from Oasis: "It was important not to sit and dwell on the past," he explains. "We came off tour and were still on fire. If we'd said, let's do something in a few months, or next year, the flame would have burnt out or we'd have got the fear. We were buzzing."
Andy Bell: "We're musicians, it's what we want to do, it's how we define ourselves. We could have sat at home, but what's the point?"
Gem Archer on the irony of working with Jeff Wooton, who plays guitar in the touring line-up of Damon Albarn's Gorrilaz: "You need irony in your life, and Damon Albarn has his head screwed on using him, he's a great musician."
The band have described the new songs as "light on their feet" and a move away from the wall of sound style of Oasis. Gem said " Psychedelia is a big word, but there are definite psychedelic moments in there. But there's also anti-psychedelic, very basic songs, and a lot of rock 'n' roll piano borrowed from Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis. Sound wise The Who, The Kinks and the Stones are there, that's the stuff in our blood.
Gem on working with Steve Lillywhite: "He was a ball of energy and made us focus and work quickly. It was that vibe again of trying to create a proper debut album - and that's exactly what I think we have done. It sounds exciting."
Thanks to Louise.

il sindaco di Firenze futuro leader del PD: Juve ladra, sei una squadretta

FIRENZE - "Vincere a Torino sarebbe non soltanto un atto sportivo, ma un atto di giustizia storica e culturale per tutti i furti che siamo stati costretti a subire nella nostra storia. L'unica partita che veramente interessa è quella di domani contro quella squadretta con i colori bianchi e neri a bande verticali. Per chi tifa Fiorentina davvero, la partita con la Juventus non è una partita, è un'esperienza mistica: io darei tranquillamente un incidente al ginocchio in maratona in cambio della vittoria a Torino. Tutti ci dicono: diventerete grandi quando considererete la partita di Torino una partita come tutte le altre. Evidentemente grandi non lo siamo, perchè io sento la partita con la Juve con una certa intensità" (Renzi, classe 1975).

Stoke crowd booing Balotelli

STOKE-ON-TRENT - Breaking news. Difficult game vs Stoke City for Man City. Mancini birthday today, best wishes Roberto.
There was a bad tackle from behind on Balotelli, and the referee didn't even see a foul! Mancini is furious, also for a not given penalty. At the end of the first half he went near the referee to say something. Stoke players are playing hard on Mario, not very "fair play"... And he told them to shut up.
Recently I read people accusing Italians to be racist just because a very small group booed Balotelli in Austria. I'm watching the game now and people are clearly booing especially Balotelli. Is that allowed? I don't think so. When such things happen here, there's a very loud (and repeated) message read inside the stadium (for example when Lazio fans booed Milan's Seedorf), warning the crowd to stop, or the match will be stopped.
At the beginning there was a good chance for City: they didn't pass the ball to Balotelli in the right moment but there were other passes and later when they gave the ball to Mario the linesman flagged an offside and it wasn't offside... he was in front of the goalkeeper so he could have scored after only 2 minutes.
0-1 from Richards, Mario's double :), but Stoke scored the 1-1 at 92.minute, one to the end of the game.

Paranoia the English destroyer

MILAN - You know so well, dear readers, email readers, passing by readers, how much I love England, the English people, how kind they are to me, also giving me everything, etc. Sometimes I write about wrong things in Italy, but here I'm gonna write about some English lacks... the purpose is always to make us better.
Loving them, maybe these lacks are just another reason why I like them.
If one refuses to recognize that people from different countries are different, he's hiding the truth, because you can't say for example that the English are the same as the Spanish, or the Chinese the same as the Argentinians, etc., we are different, with some similar things, but different.
When I meet English people, they're friendly with me, but maybe it's because they like me. You know, for my tastes, my love for England, my appearance, me myself being very English sometimes :), etc. But one could say: oh that one was friendly just because he/she was drinking the whole night. So I wonder if they would behave the same with other foreign people who are not the same as me. In fact sometimes I see they don't.
Of course I find some English who are not friendly, it's normal. But their behaviour is really strange and sometimes I wonder: what happened there in England? Must be something really serious.
I don't know if it's a problem of "coldness" in the English character, because such things are quite old, and when you hear an English person using a very...er... "warm" choice of words eh eh, you wouldn't say they're cold. The same for Oasis: when you hear them insulting someone, you wouldn't say they're cold, they're more like volcanos ahaha
About Italians being friendly, one would say we typically want to make friends with everybody, but I'm not like that, I was only sometimes.
If it's a problem of "coldness" in the English, then we Italians have the opposite problem: being sometimes too "hot" (and I don't mean being beautiful, lol) we make mistakes.
Anyway I see English & Italians usually like each other, sometimes too much.
I think the English have some kind of paranoia... And it's a real pity, because to my eyes I totally love them, they are like a beautiful angel, even the ugly ones ahaha see the metaphor.
...but many English are ruining the English angel... as children playing...

Paranoia is a thought process characterized by excessive anxiety or fear, often to the point of irrationality and delusion. Paranoid thinking typically includes persecutory beliefs concerning a perceived threat towards oneself. Recent scientific research has revealed that suspiciousness is much more common than had previously been believed.
"...the Irish man, who complained about the same phenomenon, had an explanation for all this. He claimed that the reason why the English are paranoid, is because of all the bad things they did to the world. Behind the tough facade I sensed alot of fear, there was huge insecurity. But was that really because of history? the youth of a culturally and politically powerful nation getting caught between shame and feelings of superiority? or is it just classic psychology? arrogance as often is the case covering up hidden insecurities?..."

You know behind all this I was thinking about girls and love, and here's a proper video:
that's my reality...

"Paranoia the destroyer comes knocking on my door"

girls roll with it after meeting Oasis star Liam Gallagher

LONDON - Staff at a Rawtenstall fashion store rubbed shoulders with rock ‘n’ roll bad boy Liam Gallagher at a prestigious awards ceremony.
Sunday Best attended the 20th anniversary Drapers Awards in London after being shortlisted for Independent Retailer of the Year.
They bumped into former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, who won Menswear Brand of the Year for his very own limited edition clothing line ‘Pretty Green.’
Jan Shutt, Sunday Best owner, said: "It was so great to meet Liam, we’ve all been taking note of his new fashion line so we sat chatting about it for a quite a while.
"When he was awarded the award for Menswear Brand of the Year, we all gave him a really big cheer.
"The whole evening was amazing and we were over the moon about being shortlisted for such a prestigious award.
"It’s an honour to be recognised by the industry as one of the leaders in the independent retail market.
"What a year this has been for Sunday Best, all topped off with meeting Liam.
"We’ve told him he has an open invitation to pop down to the shop any time he’s back in the north."
The glamorous ceremony saw 1,000 of the UK’s top fashion retailers and brands, from the length and breadth of the UK, gathered at Grosvenor House to congratulate the winners.
Guests were wowed by a stunning caged burlesque dancer, which opened the evening, played on casino tables and danced into the early hours at the after show party.
Other winners on the night include men and women’s clothing brand Reiss, who took home Larger Multiple Retailer of the year, John Lewis for Department Store of the Year and Larger Retailer of the year.

South America will not vote for England 2018 but Spain/Portugal + Spanish Madrid's usual Portuguese Mourinho: the special cheat

LONDON - 6 days to the decision. England's 2018 World Cup bid has been hit by the news that South America will vote for rivals Spain-Portugal next Thursday.
The English bid is also competing against Russia and Holland-Belgium.
Of course Italy will vote for England. Of course I'm joking, Italy has no members voting.
But South American governing body CONMEBOL general secretary Eduardo Deluca said: "Our 10 countries are agreed to give the vote to Spain."
Meanwhile, Sebastian Coe has insisted England's bid team can overcome any negative impact from the Panorama expose of FIFA.
Coe, who succeeded in bringing the 2012 Olympic Games to London five years ago, urged the country's delegates to bombard the world governing body's executive committee with positive messages in the build-up to next Thursday's decision in order to counter any fallout from the programme three days earlier.
The planned Monday Panorama broadcast is expected to make allegations of corruption against people involved with FIFA, something unlikely to go down well with the organisation's members.

About Spain/Portugal...
European football chiefs are investigating claims two Spanish Real Madrid stars deliberately got themselves sent off in a Champions League match.
UEFA can prove it, then action must be taken. Not just against the players but against Mourinho too. 
Cruising 4-0 away to Ajax and guaranteed to top their group, the pair received second yellow cards for time-wasting for Portuguese Jose Mourinho's side. They are now suspended for the meaningless home tie with Auxerre but will return in the contest's knockout stages with a blank disciplinary slate.
Mourinho has "previous" for, let's say, working the rules to his advantage.
Down the years, when Mourinho was managing Porto and, at times, at Chelsea it seemed he went as near as he possibly could to the very edge of the laws.
Certainly in the attitudes of the Chelsea players towards the referees, surrounding them and haranguing them and contesting decisions, and in the way he famously castigated referee Anders Frisk, who later quit after death threats were made to his family.
There was a widespread belief in football under the former suspension system that several players would get themselves sent off early in December so that they would be suspended and get Christmas off.
It is always the fans who are cheated and, with recent stories about the World Cup bidding and possible vote- selling, football could do without another accusation of dishonesty within the game.

Not to mention again Euro 2012 bought by Ukraine/Poland against Italy.

Not to mention again when Mourinho was at Inter, with at least 15 "referee mistakes" during the Champions League tournament he won, also thanks to "friend referees" in restaurants business with him...
This time he even had the shit face to complain about the red cards.

Noel partying with Milan's Leonardo&Desailly and Del Piero

LONDON - Speaking of mayhem and madness, in an interview with Irish magazine Hot Press in 2006, Noel Gallagher from Oasis declared that "Ray Stubbs is a fucking legend". Are you aware of that?

Am I aware of that? I've got the article blown up, framed and made into wallpaper for my house. Actually I haven't, but it's given me a good idea.

Can you remember why this Mancunian wild man of rock thinks you're a legend?

I can remember the incident vividly, yes.

And would you care to share it with our readers?

It was at the World Cup 2006 wrap party and we were playing a drinking game that the younger generation of the BBC staff present launched. When the challenge was set, I felt I had to stick up for the old brigade and try to hold my own.

According to Gallagher, you downed two steins of German lager in the time it took the assembled throng to sing the theme music to Match of the Day. That's impressive ...

I can't remember the exact details, but it was something like that. As an observer from afar, Noel was probably in a better position to remember than me. As someone who admires his music so much, I was incredibly pleased when I heard he'd said that.

It seems to have been quite a party, with Gallagher there, alongside Alessandro Del Piero and Spike Lee, among other celebrities.

It was fascinating. Martin O'Neill was there, Marcel Desailly ... Leonardo. In fact the final line of the Fiver the day after was that the "the BBC's wrap party wasn't as dull as the coverage".

pieces of great journalism: pathetic tabloids insulting Liam, proof of his success

BIRMINGHAM - Ahahaha how many people jealous as fuck. This is the proof of Liam success.
Some people wouldn't use insults in front of him, but now of course they do, 'cause they're hidden behind a computer, you wankers!
Besides: who the fuck are these "journalists"? Nobody knows, never heard their fake names. They insult everything, and they're not musicians, they're not fashion stylists, they're not football players, they're not managers, etc. they can only imagine how things are.
They're not even journalists.
For example one day one could imagine to be a fag getting fucked: not so difficult for them to imagine that.
Oh now I'm reading another one... what a big piece of great journalism, as the piece of shit they are.
They even studied (can you imagine without studying) and to write fucking bullshit they're even getting paid... bitches!
An advice: now go back to your favourite porn sites where you can have the most real sex in your life.
Then please continue with your bullshit, we are delighted.
:D

Liam launched the new spring/summer collection

BIRMINGHAM - He appeared at Selfridges in the Bullring Centre last evening to unveil the new spring/summer collection of his menswear clothing range, in an invitation-only event.
Pretty Green was prepared in Milan last year in March and launched in June, and has since been a surprise success.
The brand, founded and designed by Liam, won the Menswear Brand of the Year award at the Draper Fashion Awards earlier this month.
He has been pretty busy lately. Liam has recently released Bring The Light with new band Beady Eye, and this week announced that the band will be touring next year.
He has not been shy about bigging up his new band, which consists of ex-Oasis members.
He has confidently announced that Beady Eye’s debut album will be 'the best record you'll hear for the next 50 years.’

Liam is in contact with Noel

LONDON - All the times I write that tabloids junk is really rubbish, found here another example.
No insults to Capello this time, how strange. Even worse: they think Gem is Liam.
Yesterday there were some (The Sun, Mirror, etc.) publishing (some then correcting) something about the interview to Gem, putting his words on Liam's mouth, and so the news is completely different.
"Liam admits he's back in touch with Noel following months of traded insults."
No, he's not. And there were no insults. Liam back in touch with Noel! Ah! Can you imagine? Something like that would be on the newspapers all around the world!
The rubbish continues: "He said: Noel texted me just an hour ago, in fact."
Oh, this is absolutely true: and John Lennon texted me just an hour ago, in fact.

...it's GEM ARCHER, the lead guitarist now, in contact with Noel. In fact he said Noel remained on good terms with the REST of the band, not with Liam.

Oasis always had difficult relations with the press, and so it seems that tabloids keep on saying bullshit 'cause they hate the Gallaghers. Liam was about to report the Guardian saying he left the stage @ iTunes and they apologized (see image). Liam had a strong reaction about something not really important, he was nervous. Or hates the Guardian. One month after that, Oasis split up.
The Guardian was also against the Italian government some time ago, not in opinions, but saying completely false things. "News Of The World" said Noel was talking shit about Liam. And England players talking shit on Capello. All rubbish. It was only Ashley Cole ahahaha
He's the one who wrote "I hate England and the fucking people", and refused to shake Capello's hand.
I don't even distinguish one tabloid from another: when it comes to write bullshit, they're all the same.
It's not good for England when they write false things, because they're about stars, players, etc. loved by people, also abroad, or at least supported by many people. And writing rubbish then they're more under pressure and nervous.
I wonder how so many can believe those bullshit, because I see many agree with what they write and think it's true. In Italy we hate the press, almost never agree and don't believe, and I never read sentences as "a source said", "it was reported that", etc., without any name, it's in so many English tabloid articles: that's clearly rubbish.
Nothing is real. Strawberry fields forever.

"I don't see how the tabloids could get any worse for me unless they claimed I'd had anal sex with an alien. 'Liam Gallagher was caught last night bending an alien across a pool table and poking his bottom.' What more can they say about me?"
(Liam 1997)

Una grande quantità di cattivi scrittori vive unicamente della stoltezza del pubblico, che non vuole leggere se non ciò che è stato stampato il giorno stesso: sono i giornalisti. Il nome coglie nel segno! Si dovrebbe dire: "operaio pagato alla giornata".

Manchester City signed 1972 shirt

MANCHESTER - A fantastic piece of Manchester City memorabilia featuring the 1972 Replica Shirt signed by the famous trio of the late 1960s and early 1970s Mike Summerbee, Colin Bell and Francis Lee.
Mike Summerbee is synonymous with one of the most successful periods in Manchester City's history and in a decade of service at Maine Road he was instrumental in helping the club claim the FA Cup, the First Division title and the European Cup Winners' Cup.
Colin Bell Nicknamed "The King of the Kippax" (after Manchester City's Kippax Street terraced stand renowned for its singing), and Nijinsky after the famous racehorse (due to his renowned stamina), Bell is widely regarded as Manchester City's greatest ever player.
Francis Lee in his first season at the club scored 16 League goals in 31 appearances, playing a crucial role in City's push for the 1967–68 League Championship; Mercer described him as "the final piece of the jigsaw". The title was decided on the final day of the season, City requiring a win at Newcastle United. City won the match 4–3, Lee scoring one of the goals, and were crowned champions.

Beady Eye album on 28 February. Gem: no Oasis songs for the gigs

LONDON - Liam Gallagher assures us new band Beady Eye is totally, definitely absolutely nothing at all like old band Oasis. When he goes on tour next year it will be strictly new songs only.
Gem told Q magazine: "There will be no Oasis songs either, if you were going to ask".
Archer said Noel remained on good terms with the others. But he didn't say whether he expected the former band leader to reform Oasis in the future.
"Noel texted me just an hour ago, in fact. He made his decision and we made ours, and he knows that this is now what we're going to do. Give us a chance man, no one's thinking that far ahead".
The group's new album was produced by Steve Lillywhite - who has previously recorded The Rolling Stones - and Gem says he added a great deal to the sound.
He said: "What did Steve Lillywhite bring to the studio? Liam would probably say his iPad, but he was a ball of energy and made us focus and work really quickly. It was that vibe again of trying to create a proper debut album - and that's exactly what I think we've done. It sounds exciting."
It's been reported that the band's debut album will be in stores on 28th February 2011.

Vinyl countdown to Liam's clothing gig

LONDON - Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has picked an up-and-coming Cardiff band to play at the glitzy London launch of his new clothing label.
The Broken Vinyl Club were stunned to get the call to say the notorious Brit-pop bad boy had personally requested them to play at the club night for Pretty Green.
They took the request from Gallagher in disbelief, saying that it was weeks before reality sank in.
Band frontman Scott Howells said the four-piece, who have only been together 18 months, had been inspired by Oasis. He said: “Oasis were one of the bands that made me want to be in a band.”
They will play a set at the Relentless Garage in London on Friday in front of a celebrity crowd. “We’re working really hard because obviously we want to get it right in front of so many influential people,” Scott added.
Liam heard the band’s first single, I Want You Girl, after Merthyr-born actor and musician Jon Owen passed it on to contacts in the music industry.
Music teacher Scott, 30, said he and his colleagues, who live in Cardiff and Aberdare, were amazed to get the call.
He said: “It didn’t sink in for about a week-and-a-half, we didn’t really believe it was true.”
But now he and band mates Meirion Townsend, Justin Beynon and Jamie Taylor are preparing for their biggest show yet.
“Hopefully the nerves will pass by the end of the second song,” Scott said.
“We’ve been going for 18 months as this band but we’ve never done anything as big as this.”

Kasabian Mancini: pressure at City is nothing compared to Milan

MANCHESTER - Photo: Tom Meighan and Sergio Pizzorno.
Manchester City manager Mancini is an Oasis fan, as he said some months ago, also quoting Don't look back in anger in an interview. At the end of his career as a player he joined Kasabian team, Leicester City.
He insists life at Manchester City is a breeze compared to the pressure cooker environment he experienced at Inter Milan. After 2 goalless draws (one the difficult derby vs Man Utd) and criticism of his negative tactics, the Italian was being lined up to take a hefty tumble at the hands of former City boss Mark Hughes at Craven Cottage yesterday.
But instead it was Hughes left with egg on his face, as 3 goals in 35 minutes set City on their way to an impressive 1-4 win.
The result left Mancini's men just 3 points adrift of leaders Chelsea in the title race.
But the former Leicester City striker insists the weight of expectation on his shoulders to deliver the club's first trophy in 34 years does not bother him.
He said: "People continue to say I am under pressure. I am not under pressure. When you have worked for Inter Milan for four years it is impossible to be under pressure.
"They are one of the top teams in Italy and one of the biggest clubs in the world.
"When I went there, they hadn't won the championship for 16 years.
"I was under pressure every day with people demanding to know, 'when will Inter win? When, when, when?'
"But I stayed four years, which is a big record for a manager there."
Mancini won three Serie A crowns during his spell in charge at the San Siro and created a dominance that continued through the Jose Mourinho era, so he feels confident knowing which way is best for City.
He added: "It is impossible to build a house from the roof down.
"You must start with the basement. Now, maybe we are on the second floor. We have time but we must continue to improve."
