Even though I'm far from an Arsenal fan, it was very refreshing to see Eduardo score twice last night. A great way to return and I hope he can get back to his best. Often injuries of this stature seriously damage the way a player recovers and performs when he's over the injury, and can force an early retirement. Let's hope this is not the case as Eduardo is definitely a future prospect. icon14.gif

Glad that out of all players it was Timmy Cahill that scored. If only he can replicate his form for the national team.

I always forget about Australia's football team, onlt time they ever seem to get a decent mention is when the World Cup comes around. Like last time i saw them Kewell, Viduka, Cahill, Mike (goalkeeper aint going to bother trying to spell his last name) those guys still apart of the squad or not these days?

The kid is f*cking good, but there seems to be a kid like this that comes out every 6 months or so, im no doubt that he will be a great player in years to come but its not like hes the first kid to be like this at that age. Wheter he makes it to the pros and is "The Next Cristiano Ronaldo" is to hard to tell at the moment because who knows what will happen to him in the future.

No worse than when Pepe had a off day against you guys in 2006 (i think). Its alright its only the reserves anyway what do you think hes going to make it in our first squad? Hahaha please, he's english so he aint ever getting in, maybe if he was spanish maybe he would still have a chance.

Just seen a bit about him when i got in from work.

 

Looks like a right ball greedy f*ck. Although he can do the tricks that doesn't mean he'll actually be a good footballer, he needs to be working on his passing, shooting and tackling rather than the fancy stuff and then it depends if he's got the footballing brain to make it in the big time. Besides he wont get away with doing all that when he's older and playing against older players. Definitely one to watch though.

 

That Setanta link crashes my internet pages and closes them...

 

Liverpool always seem to have the next big England keeper ever since David James, we've had Tony Warner, Chris Kirkland and Scott Carson and they don't really push on. James only become an England regular when he left Liverpool if i remember correctly.

You didn't think that maybe he already has all those attributes? The video only shows his skills, and nothing more. The video won't get a good response if it shows that a six year old boy can pass a ball or tackle. Cristiano Ronaldo is not World renowned for his passing and tackling ability. And with this kids skills, at such a young age, he's definitely got a head start over most in terms of getting to the top. Whether he'll get there is an entirely different story. He's six years old, hardly a time to commit to football, and if he does, the whole media coverage he is receiving and will receive could definitely be all too much. It's happened way too many times in the past. icon13.gif

Like i said "Although he can do the tricks that doesn't mean he'll actually be a good footballer."

 

And i'm not on about learning all these attribute things now, i'm on about when he's older as skills will only get you so far.

And all I'm saying is, he's got the tricks, and therefore a big head start over others if he wants to make it big, and I'm also saying that he could well flourish in other attributes, though the video didn't show that for obvious reasons (a six year old being able to pass and tackle isn't going to get so much media coverage).

Yeah, they only got Ronaldo so far. tounge.gif

Great goal by Scholes this morning; I woke up the next door neighbours when he scored (it was just after 7:00 a.m.) but still, quite something to watch. Although I've seen better goals, the amount of power put behind the ball was... incredible. nervous.gif

 

5 points Seddo, 5 points. cool.gif

Hell of alot of football left yet, so no point in counting the points gap just yet. Just ask Newcastle they'll tell you.

Still at 3/1 with Paddy Power to win it, would probably be about 1/4 that we don't, but PP don't offer odds on that.

0-0 draw between Shakhtar Donetsk and Tottenham Hotspur in the UEFA Cup from what I've heard. Seemed like a good match, looked a bit cold though.

Im really impressed with Everton this season, with out Striker Crisis, we seem to have found a way to not be defeated. We had no strikers for about 6 weeks, and had to relie on a midfielder named Tm Cahill. He has scored in nearlly all of them. Even out youngsters seem to be scoring(Dan Gosling and Jack Rodwell) We seem to have a new striker now on loan from Man city called Joao. He scored in his Debut.

 

Just can't wait to Frash Newcastle United.

Welcome to the club.

 

United just let their first goal in 7 billion minutes, hopefully Blackburn can go a step further and win, but United have been untouchable as Wenger said the other day, can't really see United dropping any points at the moment tounge.gif.
