Week 6: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly



Well, at last UEFA has shown some sense and overturned the ban on Eduardo for diving. A couple of week’s ago we featured that decisions in our Ugly section – it just seemed crazy to start handing out bans for simulation – a can of worms. It seems that UEFA has agreed and backed down after Arsenal protested. A good decisions – even if it was a dive!

A good week for veteran goalscorers, as 35 year old Ryan Giggs scores for the 20th year in succession in top-flight football in England – against my team Spurs in Manchester United’s 3-1 victory last week. Then in Tuesday’s Champions League match between Marseilles and AC Milan, 36 year old Pipo Inzaghi scored a brace to give the Rossoneri an important away victory and at the same time equalling the European competition goalscoring record.


For former Manchester United and Ireland captain Roy Keane who is currently in charge at Ipswich. The club are still without a win after 7 matches after the Championship side were held to a 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest yesterday to leave the club languishing in the relegation zone. Troubled times ahead for both club and manager.

It was bad for Tokyo FC in Japan, who got through to the final’s of the J-league cup to be played next month, but then found out that their star striker, Brazilian Cabore, is leaving for Qatar. To make matters worse they lost in the league next game. The other finalists in the J-League Cup, Kawasaki, also had a bad time of it last week as their game was called off because of torrential rain – when they were leading top-placed Kashima 3-1. The game will have to be replayed at some time in the future. Bad luck Kawasaki!


Well, if you’ve been reading any of the football news this week, you’ll have heard about Adabayor, the ex-Arsenal and now Manchester City striker’s antics in last weekends clash between Manchester city and Arsenal. Going into the match there was talk about how he would cope with the abuse he would get from the Arsenal fans, who were upset at the way he left. The answer was… badly, very badly! Despite playing brilliantly and scoring, he also managed to rake his studs across, Van Persie, his ex-teammate’s face, and the run the length of the pitch to taunt the Arsenal fans. Ugly and it looks as though a big ban is coming Adabayor’s way.
