BIRTHDAY WEEKEND SPOILED BY LIVERPOOL LOSS



Ok, So its the first Gameweek of the EPL and it was excitement all the way. Knowing that Fantasy Ball has kicked in was even better.The guys were excited and sms's were flowing.

Firstly I just want to thank everyone for their warm Birthday Messages and wishes. It was an awesome birthday and the lads ,they know who they are made it a memmorable one. Geez I should call it an International Birthday. Got a special message from Romania and a call from Romania from Gheogie Hajees Agent he he...and We were bowling Flippers Shane Warne Style.
We got tips on how to bowl that Leggie and how to destroy someone with a Flipper.

Also its three years since the blog has started and I just want to post a special message to everyone also for their tremendous support on swoosh0018.com. Really appreciate. As I always said its the comments that make the blog and I cant Thank you ENOUGH. A great achievement that stems from the blog is the smiles we have put on so many kids faces through the Swoosh0018 Charity Foundation and again I could not have achieved this without your support.
Swoosh0018 Thanks you and I cannot find the words to express my gratitude.
So all in all....It was a fantastic Birthday

Since I was engrossed in my birthday celebrations I caught drips and drabs of the footie and through sms's and highlights heres my take

THEATER OF DREAMS
Wayne Who? Wayne F#4ken Rooney. Rooney was outstanding as a Ronaldo-less outfit dispatched Birmingham 1-0. Rooney deserved a goal and slotted in after his header hit the bar.Utd had their chances but its always important to get your campaign off with a victory.Il await the comments

CHEL$KI
With an Italian at the helm I thought Chelsea wouldnt concede against Hull.But they did and early surprisingly. But then they let the Drog out.He levelled with a sublime free kick and maybe got the winner with some fortune. Great goal though it seemed. And Chelsea got their three points.

ALWAYS A GOONER
I shouldnt open my mouth on this blog. I just dont learn.I wrote Arsenal off and they thump Everton 6-1. 6-1 with Lescott. Scintilating performance by a team that always has the reputation of playing riviting football. Fabregas was instrumental and the whole Arsenal team was sublime. I watched the goals and they tore Everton. But lets not get carried away here.This Arsenal as theya are known are more than capable of going to lose against Stoke or Hull next Gameweek.

FROM THE KOP END
First thing the Alis said to me was Swoosh. How can Rafa play Benitez as a holding midfielder. What can I say. I have no words. I was just getting sms's the whole time saying how Pepe Reinna was saving Liverpool. Robbie Keane the b2#tard had a point to prove.
The first Spurs goal was a blinder. Gerard made no mistake from the spot and from a set piece we conceded a header. 2-1 to Spurs.0 points while the rivals get their accounts opened.Ebie Kop End phoned me and demanded Silva and more signings and reiterated how pathetic Liverpool played.
And a sour end to my birthday.

And Aston Villa surprising lost 2-0 at home to Wigan. And I expected Big things from Villa. Man City beat Blackburn 2-0 and Adebajour scored a Belter of note. Good wins for Sunderland and West Ham as well.

Whats disturbing is the transfer speculations. Is Cesc Fabregas going to Milan?Shakes,What have you heard. Barcelona bid for Vidic and I hope he goes to a bigger club and Arsenal zone in for Van de Vaart. Good signing

LA LIGA
In the Spanish Super Cup Barcelona went a goal down to Athletic Bilboa but thanks to Midfield Maestro XAVI they beat Bilboa 2-1 and secure the first leg.

On Super Tuesday tomorrow Uncle Bhai Gora will bring us up to speed with Bolts world record breaking 100 m dash.

Im not much of a Golf Fan but I see our lads are quite into it these days.
This morning on the news I heard about how some Korean Man ranked 100 and something tamed the Tiger. Not since the klupping of Raj Bhansi has a Tiger been tamed. Must have been something else.Azee and the rest of the Golfers.Your thoughts?

  10. The Arsenal victory was surprising but a bit of a freak result. I think the Lescott issue played a big part in unsettling the Everton defense. He might be on his way to City now.

    Terry Paine nominated Liverpool as his title wining side for this season. Which was shocking to say the least as Liverpool's defense is nowhere near the quality of Champions. THey have failed to replace a quality midfielder & were largely outclassed by Spurs with the impressive Palacios & Lennon running them ragged. The FOOLS are depending on 2 players to land them the title: Gerr & Torr, when you need 4 quality strikers to last the distance.

  13. Well done to the Korean...the man played golf...

    he showed determination . grit and a fighting spirit that no one else has really shown when challenging tiger on the last day....

    I think tiger is too cautious these days...he has the game no doubt but he doesn`t go out there and attack the course anymore..he seems to wait for the play to unfold and then decides..i mean for a man with his abilities of recovery i feel nothing wrong with going out and attacking..destroy the field...

    on hole 3 or 4 early in the round he left himself 50 or so more yards than the other players.????

    But he is world number one..his dominance in the world game speaks for itself...

    rememember jack nicklaus finished second in major championships 19 times....and won 18

    Tiger is still way ahead of any other player to have of played ever...

    cant wait for the fedex cup to play out...and look forward to seeing Tiger over taking nicklaus record..he is only 33 years old..

  16. Gerrard has to play in Alonso's position until Aquilani is fit. That is the only way they can get some control in the midfield.Benayoun should play just off Torres during this time.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Swoosh I heard the rumour yesterday about Fabregas to Milan. The only thing that makes sense there is he fits into Milan's transer policy with age and he's tremendous ability.

    I feel a perfect replacement for Kaka and I'd be excited to have him in the Rossoneri colours, but I have seen nothing in the press about it. I will only believe it when he's in Milan for a medical, till then it's just speculation.

  39. I wouldn't make too much out of the first weekend of football. As many of you learnt last year the league runs through 38 games and theres no point about getting so excited so early. Fair enough the gunners fans will be over the moon with their side hammering a strong Everton outfit. As for Chelsea and Man U, they did just enough to secure wins against relegation contenders. As far as liverpool go, very very poor performance. You guys didn't have a clue. However WHL is not gonna be easy for any side this season.

  40. FUCK GARY PLAYER!
    'Papwa' Sewgolum
    As for Player, he was on a roll in 1965. Besides the World Cup Invitational, he won the US Open Championships to complete golf's Grand Slam of majors, took his third South African Open and fourth Australian Open, and notched up wins in the World Series, World Matchplay and NTL Challenge Cup.

    In the 1965 Natal Open, however, Player played second fiddle to Sewgolum.

    Sewgolum's second Natal Open victory was overshadowed, however, by the happenings at the prize-giving ceremony afterwards. Rain was pelting down, which prevented the trophy being presented outdoors, as was the usual case, and the ceremonies were moved inside.

    The laws of the day were that Indian people were not allowed inside the Durban Country Club. An infraction of those laws could have resulted in the club losing its liquor licence.

    Photographs of Sewgolum receiving his Natal Open trophy in the rain - while the club's white patrons sat in comfort inside - flashed around the world, prompting an international outcry. A number of countries reacted by imposing sports sanctions on South Africa.

    In 1965, Sewgolum came within a whisker of winning the South African Open, losing out to Retief Waltman by a single shot.

    However, just when it seemed his career would take off, the apartheid government brought it to an appalling halt. In 1966 the government banned Sewgolum from all local tournaments, and by withdrawing his passport, prevented him from playing abroad - and, in effect, from making a living.

    Sewgolum died impoverished in 1978, not yet 50 years of age, from a heart attack.

  41. Did Player enact those laws?
    must he be punished for those laws?
    At that natal open sewgualum outplayed him, so credit to him,
    does that make him better then player i dont think so!

    Papwa was robbed liks so many other black people, but that should not detract from Players achievments!

    i luv gary player!

  42. Player is a racist ... no doubt it. Having personally met the yid b*stard on a number of occasions, you quickly realise all that bullsh*t about helping kids etc is simple PR.
    I know for a fact it pains him to see Tiger, a black man, dominating what used to traditionally be a upper class white man's sport.
    And Player is not the only one ... The PGA is filled with officials who would love to see Tiger fail and the Bear's record remain untouched by a black man. (The officials at a certain clubhouse off Magnolia Lane are top of that list) In an ideal world, Michelson would be the golden boy making golf history - That is the general sentiment of the racist bast*rds on the PGA (Player included).
    It's also interesting to note, Player is one of the very few people on this planet not to acknowledge Tiger's grandslam because as he put it "It can't be a grandslam, because he didn't win all four titles in one year. It's not a grandslam" - that was said to my face by Player himself. Screw that b*stard !!! We're living in a great golfing era that will be remembered for generations to come. Tiger Woods will take his place along side proper legends of the game ... Old Tom Morris, Bobby Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Palmer, Seve but not Player !!! It's an insult to Tiger's golfing genius to even mention him in the same breath as Player.

    And er ... oh yeah. Well done Yang, good to see another golfer from "the other side" lift a major trophy.

    all i said was to acknowledge what player did! and not to always just go back to that papwa story.

    Yes racism existed and still does exist in sport and affects all cultures.if you want to bring you point across, donot sledge any ethnic group personally with bad remarks in a bad way.

  54. Dave on your point.A friend of mines was regarded as a hot local talent in the Inidan community.He had a trial with a huge PSL Club.
    I went along and was astounded that he played all but 45 minutes,was played out of position,recieved the ball twice and was told Thank You very much.

    He played WFA and is now growing old and FAT.Was he the wrong color type or does the SA Soccer trialing system just suck.
    So I agree racism is acroos the board in all sports and perhaps we are all guilty of it.
    There were plenty of comments floating around about why there are so many Indian players in the Dolphins set up and on the same breadth why are they so little Indians in the Gauteng Set UP.
    I hope as a senior SA citizen now,by the time my kids grow up Merrit will conquer politics
