I haven't said anything about Jose Mourinho leaving Stamford Bridge yet, but sense I am somewhat of a Chelsea supporter I'd like to say that I am sad to see him go. More so for English football that the club because he brought the best out of everyone, the club, the players, the league, and his competition.
SunSport revealed yesterday that Chelsea have already struck a deal to pay the Brazilian superstar £58million over five years.
Although Ronaldinho has not said he will quit the Nou Camp, Chelsea have already agreed the wage deal with Ronnie’s brother and agent Roberto de Assis.
But boss Frank Rijkaard insists he wants to keep the goofy genius.
Rijkaard said: “It doesn’t even cross my head that he will leave.
“In football, people forget very quickly. He had and still has incredible value.
“He’s working hard to recover as quickly as possible and he’s got great desire to return to the team and there’s nothing behind that issue.”
In other news....
The Sun - MARCO VAN BASTEN has been offered the Chelsea job.
Blues owner Roman Abramovich made his move for the Holland boss at the weekend and is now waiting for his reply.
Ex-Real Madrid chief Fabio Capello let slip the secret by revealing Chelsea technical director Frank Arnesen recommended legendary striker Van Basten to Red Rom.
Capello said: “Arnesen wants Van Basten to take over and has already recommended Marco to Abramovich.”
Capello added: “Frank and Marco know each other well from their time in Dutch football.”
Van Basten, 40, sat behind Abramovich at Old Trafford in Sunday’s defeat to Manchester United.
The Dutchman privately insisted it was just a coincidence and that he was a United guest.
But Van Basten spoke at length with Chelsea’s hierarchy about an offer to succeed Avram Grant, who became Blues boss only last week after Jose Mourinho’s departure.
Ex-AC Milan hitman Van Basten asked for a few days to decide whether to take the job immediately. A close pal said: “Marco is faced with a huge dilemma. He has to think things over and see whether he could leave Holland.”
The Dutch sit joint top of Group G with Romania in Euro 2008 qualifying.
Mike Vick failed a drug test recently, for marijuana... I guess the results were just made public. He took this test around September 12th or so, right in the middle of the dog fighting scandal.
You know, I wouldn't really care if say he failed a drug test for weed when this dog fighting thing wasn't going on, but seriously... come on. This proves that Michael Vick is a complete (f-word) idiot. Why in the world would you be taking or smoking anything during a federal indictment.
Think about it... think about what he was going through his head when he said to himself, "aw, it's tight, it's just a federal indictment, let's go get high." Seriously. It doesn't take that long for pot to get out of your system, so he had to have smoked during the indictment. It's Insane.
I understand that people want to forgive him and I support that, but if you don't think Michael Vick is one the biggest wastes of talent because of completely moronic decisions, that are actually amazingly mind blowing, the gene pool would be better without you.

Sorry about all the video posts lately, I've just been busy with grad school. About OJ: I really think he did this stunt to sell his book that just came out and make some more money. He does have some hefty fines / fees to pay from a certain civil case about a decade ago. I mean, why would there have been a video of the deal and why would one of the "victims" already said he wasn't going to press charges. It is a set up I tell you. Anyways OJ sucks and Ill leave you with an amazing quote about him.

HAHA... WOW... here we go again...
(AP) - So much for the sedate alternative to Rosie O'Donnell on "The View." Whoopi Goldberg used her first day on the daytime chat show Tuesday to defend football star Michael Vick in his dogfighting case. Goldberg said that "from where he comes from" in the South, dogfighting isn't that unusual. It's like cockfighting in Puerto Rico," she said. "There are certain things that are indicative to certain parts of the country."
In the Vick discussion, Goldberg served notice that she won't shy away from controversy.
Co-host Joy Behar looked horrified at Goldberg. "How about dog torture and dog murdering?" Behar asked. "For many people, dogs are sport, Goldberg replied, and it appeared it took awhile for Vick to realize that he was up against serious charges. I just thought it was interesting, because it seemed like a light went off in his head when he realized this was something that the entire country didn't appreciate," she said.
Sweet Jesus. I don't about you, but there are so many that I can not even count the number of fallacies Goldberg uses in her argument to defend Michael Vick. Hmmm, lets see, so, I guess if you come from "the South" (i guess Virginia counts) you are allowed and basically expected to be cool with and participate in dogfighting. I realize that there are "certain things that are indicative to certain parts of the country," but if these "things" are innately horrific and inhumane they should not be defended by anyone with half a brain. So, this excludes Whoopi.
Also, Whoopi, way to basically stereotype an entire country. I guess if you are Puerto Rican you must be a huge cockfighting fan... haha... typing this makes me laugh because this generalized notion by a "respected" person is so ridiculous it is almost inconceivable. It is actually incredibly racist. Way to go Whoopi... way... to... go...
And for you Puerto Ricans out there... enjoy the cockfight tonight. Good God.
