Good afternoon folks.
It has been a relatively quiet weekend, unless you include the rampant transfer rumors surrounding Brad Guzan (Celtic, Arsenal, Olympiakos) and Eddie Johnson (Derby, Fulham and Reading). I will look to have some info on these rumors during the week.
The FA Cup has ruled the weekend, with struggling Fulham suffering yet ANOTHER disappointing result, this time a 2-2 tie against Bristol Rovers.
I passed over one major signing of the past week, Valencia’s acquisition of Boca Juniors starlet Ever Banega. It will be interesting to see where David Albelda winds up. The Spanish international is suing to have his contract voided after being told he wouldn’t see any more first-team action this season.
Lastly, I had to show you all this video clip from a Punk’d-like prank show by Rio Ferdinand. The Man U defender has punk’d his share of English soccer players, including LA Galaxy star David Beckham. Watch and enjoy seeing Beckham react to a pretty good prank (and yes, the clip is more than a year old, but still funny):
Seems like a great show, right? Well, it didn’t survive very long.
And lastly, for you fellow watchers of The Wire, the new season starts tonight. For those of you not watching The Wire, you are missing the best show on television, period. You might want to TIVO this season, the last for the show.
That’s all for now. Enjoy your Sunday.
