Surely Larsson must have some regrets …

Watched the Utd v Milan game last night and was (like most everyone) else completely enthralled. Semi Final of the Champions league; Rooney/Kaka/Ronaldo in full effect; 76,000 in a press cooker Old Trafford surely Henrik Larsson must regret just a little his decision to return to Helsingborg. I went to the Djurgården v Helsingborg game at the weekend at the Stadion in Stockholm and it was a great game but not in any sense of the phrase in the same ball park as last nights Utd v Milan encounter. And yes, Larsson looked good with some great movement etc etc but on his own not really much use without any real quality around him.

Anyway, couple of shots:

Roy Keane and Sunderland

My mate Gary sent this article along from football365 about the new Roy Keane appointment at Sunderland – it is certainly interesting and whatever else happens suspect it will be a ‘ride’ – I have a funny feeling he may actually work out – Not sure I’d fancy being one of his players though – and not sure ‘contriteness’ suits him all that well.

As the new Premiership season kicks off

Had an email from a friend of mine from Shanghai. Yep, remember it well and yep seems like a different time some how.

‘From South China Morning Post…

Ten years ago this week, a floppy-haired kid scored one of the more memorable Premiership goals. Long before Posh Spice, the Wags, Real Madrid’s Galacticos, the sarongs, broken metatarsals, camera-hogging goal celebrations and ludicrous world-wide exposure, David Beckham was a promising midfielder trying to break into the Manchester United first team ahead of the likes of Jordi Cruyff and Karel Poborsky. Beckham had already had a few games for United by then after a loan spell at Preston, but, on the opening day of the 1996-97 season, against Wimbledon at Selhurst Park, he signalled his arrival in the most emphatic way possible by scoring with a lofted shot from 55 yards. A star was born.’

It was ten years ago (well next month anyway)

With the upcoming World Cup have been having bit of nostalgia fest for Euro ’96. And conversation turned to music that accompanied the several hundred ‘Grolsch Grenades’ that went through my fridge over those weeks that we bunked off work and watched the exploits of Gazza; Shearer and suffered David Baddiel.

So, here is a playlist from that time. I have included the Baddiel/Skinner thing for completeness but to be honest we didn’t play it.

Euro 96 Playlist

Oh, and who can’t be lifted by the sight of Gazza immediately post THAT goal.
