In the end, Chelsea's quality pulled them through. Perhaps the lack of Boro still not having a manager since the sacking of Southgate means that there isn't the right tactical personel overseeing the team at the moment.

Both Cook + Koppers get a rating of 7 and an assist each.

Recreativo go down to 10 men after 47 minutes, a red card being shown for a professional foul.

55 minutes gone and Cassano scores a fantastic goal for Sevilla, dribbling 30 yards in between defenders before slotting it passed the keeper. 0-2.

Sevilla almost make it 3 with a 30 yard freekick which was tipped wide.

Alan Intro

Alan comes on with 5 minutes to go, but doesn’t do too much.

FT: Recreativo 0 v 2 Sevilla

Ali Obeid has had his loan at Southampton extended for a further 3 months.

Rossini has signed a new contract with AC Milan, is contract now set to expire in June 2013. Later in the week, he goes and tears his hamstring at his loan club Werder Bremen. He will be out for 2-3 months.

Arsenal have made a loan offer until the end of the season to loan De Santiago, as they have only Jens Lehmann as a recognisable 1st team keeper. Everton, Wigan and Zaragoza have also made loan offers for him.

Prof Frink has declared to the press that he is probably going to leave Crystal Palace soon as he feels that at Crystal Palace he will not be able to fufill his ambition to win trophies!

Player Cam Match Report

Sun 11th Jan: Getafe (19th) v (4th) Sevilla – League Match

Alan has to settle for a place on the subs bench again this week, as Sevilla use an unchanged line up from the previous week. Alan might have to wonder exactly how many games Sevilla are going to play him (a la Beckham) now he has decided to move onto pastures new at the season end.

Getafe score after 16 minutes with a goal from a tight angle. 1-0.

Sevilla start to dominate after the goal and equalise after 32 minutes, Cassano finishing off a cross after a good counter down the left wing. 1-1.

Getafe then come back into the match, yet when the half time whistle goes the only 2 shots on target in the match both went in.

HT: Getafe 1 v 1 Sevilla

A quiet start to the 2nd half.

Alan Intro

Alan replaces Kanoute after 72 minutes.

Getafe almost snatch victory with a minute to go, but the Sevilla keeper dives well down to his left to put the ball wide.

FT: Getafe 1 v 1 Sevilla

Another quiet game for Alan but he isn’t being given enough minutes on the pitch to impress.

Alan has picked up a stubbed toe and misses this game. He will be out for a further 3-5 days.

Prof Frink has now put in a transfer request to leave Crystal Palace. As well as the Rangers bif of £2.7m, Hull have bid £3.4m for the player. Both bids were accepted, with Prof Frink agreeing terms with Rangers. He becomes the 1st superkid to play in Scotland.

Alan + Halali now have Bill listed in their favoured personel section. The feelings are not mutual as yet! icon_wink.gif

I have also noticed that Fabiov Maldinov + Turkus Mendieta have Selim Atas listed under favoured personel.

Davo becomes the 4th superkid to become labelled as a 'Wonderkid'.

Samaras Taraldo is wanted by Porto and Deportivo.

Notts Forest has extended their loan of Hermandiho for a further 2 months.

Selim Atas has strained knee ligaments and will out for upto a month. Both he and Hermandinho will therefore miss Turkmenistan's first final round World Cup Qual match at home to Qatar.

Elfdog has pulled his hamstring and will be out for 3 weeks and is now a doubt for Kyrgyzstan's World Cup Qual away to Bahrain.

Thats it for today folks, hopefully I should be able to do something similar tomorrow - so you will be getting your wages update and maybe even the first group matches of the last round of the 2010 World Cup Quals. icon14.gif

Michael Laudrup has declared that whilst Benj has had acceptable form of late, he can still improve. Benj is bemused by this statement as he feels his recent form hasn’t been too great (6-7-6-6-9).

In a last minute move in the January transfer window, Man Utd made a £6.5m bid for Freealdinho. The bid was accepted and Freealdinho was delighted to agree terms, stating that the offer to play for a club like United was too good to turn down. Swansea fans were unhappy after the sale of one of their favourite players. Indeed Freealdinho is listed in Swansea’s favourite players section. Swansea favourite John Toshack later commented that he felt that Swansea fans would offer the player a warm welcome the next time he returned to Swansea’s ground. The player has been made ‘available for loan’ at Man Utd.

Samaras Taraldo has declared to a newspaper that as an ambitious person he would welcome the opportunity to move to a bigger club.

Al-Dahash has the shot of the game, firing over from just outside the area.

Villa almost gives Valencia the lead, but his close range shot is well saved.

HT: Valencia 0 v 0 Espanyol

Quite a boring first half.

Valencia are reduced to 10 men after 51 minutes, due to a professional foul.

Espanyol then start to dominate proceedings.

Al-Dahash is switched from centre mid to the left wing.

Al-Dahash is subbed after 73 minutes.

Luis Garcia almost snatched the win for Espanyol with the last kick of the game, but he fires over from within the 18 yard area.

Turkmenistan v Qatar

Weds 11th Feb: World Cup 2010 Asian Qualifying 3rd Round

Line Up

10 superkids start the game with Maldinov + Dumats on the bench. Key Man is Samaras Taraldo, with the captain being a non-superkid. Chaoconov picked up food poisoning a day before the game and will be out for 2 weeks.

My Opinion

You have to win your home matches in this group and Qatar are probably the weakest opponents. If they don’t win, things are not looking good.

Just 3 minutes gone and a truly shocking header backwards by Qatar leaves Cook with a virtual open goal 10 yards out to the left of the goal. Hits the side netting – not good enough!

10 minutes in and De Santiago has to pull off a great save from a back post header after a freekick.

Tomaldinho picks up a yellow card after 16 minutes.

23 minutes gone and Koppers punts a long ball down the left wing. Cook picks up the ball, cuts inside before firing past the keeper. 1-0 and his 1st goal for Turkmenistan.

35 minutes gone and Gonzalez scores an absolute peach of a goal from 30 yards, curling it into the far corner with a first time shot. 2-0.

Swinson stays on the left wing after a corner and receives the ball. He crosses for Gonzalez who heads home. 3-0, 40 minutes gone.

Hermandinho picks up a yellow card.

Just too comprehensively send Qatar in on a downer, Ali Obeid heads a Swinson corner into the net in injury time. 4-0.

But its still not over, lol. Straight from the restart they steal the ball off Qatar, with Gonzalez playing a one-two with Cook, resulting in Gonzalez powering it past the keeper for his hattrick. 5-0.

HT: Turkmenistan 5 v 0 Qatar

Half Time Stats

Wow, what an end to the first half!

Ali Obeid picks up a yellow card.

70 minutes gone a lovely keep ball move by Turkmenistan finishes with a cross from Swinson being headed in by Gonzalez for his fourth. 6-0.

8 minutes later and Cook slots home another. 7-0.

Taraldo + Ali Obeid are then subbed off, with Dumats coming on.

FT: Turkmenistan 7 v 0 Qatar

Match Overview

Player Stats

Great performance by Turkmenistan, sending a message out to the rest of the teams in the group. MOM goes to Gonzalez.

Bahrain v Kyrgyzstan

Weds 11th Feb: World Cup 2010 Asian Qualifying 3rd Round

Kyrgyzstan Line Up

10 superkids start the game, with Bartinho on the bench. Robson was not included in the match day squad and 4 are injured. Captain is Alan and the Key Man is Al-Dahash.

My Opinion

Like Turkmenistan, although away from home, Kyrgyzstan need to win this game to finish in the top 2 and I believe they will.

Bahrain have the better of the opening half hour, Lui being called upon a couple of times to rescue Kyrgyzstan.

Al-Dahash + Azeryk pick up yellow cards.

With a minute to go and slightly against the run of play, Azeryk volleys on the turn and scores after a cross from Ryan. 0-1.

HT: Bahrain 0 v 1 Kyrgyzstan

Half Time Stats

Bill + Azeryk are subbed by Mark Lawrenson at halftime – Alan has obviously done something to make the gaffer not sub him!

Both teams have half chances early in the second half.

Taphouse plays a long ball into Alan, who fires just over from 20 yards.

After 70 minutes, Bartinho replaces Al-Dahash.

Taphouse has a freekick well saved. 5 minutes later he picks up a yellow card.

FT: Bahrain 0 v 1 Kyrgyzstan

Match Overview

Player Stats

Kyrgyzstan managed to hold on and record a vital win. MOM goes to Birkinaldo for being solid as a rock at the back.

Great match against Qatar! Good step towards getting the goal difference base covered.

Unfortunately I wasn't part of it. Damn food poisoning. icon_frown.gif

I think I've just about had enough of the food at Anderlecht. And the water and air too, while we're at it. Still not getting all that much play time, and lowest wage of all Turkmenistan players.

Atletico sounds pretty good. Few months to go until the summer, but I'll start packing already, just in case. icon_smile.gif

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">In a last minute move in the January transfer window, Man Utd made a £6.5m bid for Freealdinho. The bid was accepted and Freealdinho was delighted to agree terms, stating that the offer to play for a club like United was too good to turn down. Swansea fans were unhappy after the sale of one of their favourite players. Indeed Freealdinho is listed in Swansea’s favourite players section. Swansea favourite John Toshack later commented that he felt that Swansea fans would offer the player a warm welcome the next time he returned to Swansea’s ground. The player has been made ‘available for loan’ at Man Utd. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Wow, I never expected that.

Glad to see that there were no hard feelings about my transfer!

Australia and South Korea drawing is a god gift which may see us qualify for the world cup! (fingers crossed)

Robson's performances are nicely climbing, nearing the magical 7,00 average. Won't be too long now till the co-ownership deal ends and Inter will (hopefully) buy my other half icon_smile.gif

KUTGW!
