Drogba investigated over coin throwing

Chelsea’s great run this season has come to a halt in the fourth round of the Carling Cup against Burnley. While the fans are likely to dismiss the penalty loss as a minor setback, Didier Drogba may find himself out of action should the FA find him guilty of unsportsmanlike conduct.

Drogba is investigated for an incident when he threw a coin back at the crowd. The Ivory Coast forward was pelted with coins from the visiting Qq Poker fans’ stand after scoring the (ultimately futile) opening goal. He must have thought the Burnley followers had spent too much money and he threw one

coin back to the crowd, garnering it with an obscene gesture.

Drogba received a yellow card and immediately apologized, saying “it was an incident in the heat of the moment (…) a mistake and nothing more”.

The apology should be enough for if indeed he is punished for the incident one has to wonder how much the players are expected to take from the hooligans who threaten them with injury by aiming solid objects at them.

 

 

Ruud van Nistelrooy says adiós to the season

 

Real Madrid’s Dutch striker Ruud van Nistelrooy will not be playing any more until next summer because of the surgery on his right knee proved to be more complex than expected.

 

Operated in the United States, Van Nistelrooy suffered a partially torn meniscus in a recent game against Juventus in the Champions’ League.

Last year Spanish top scorer will be sorely missed by Real Madrid, who are now relying on the young gun Gonzalo Higuaín and captain Raúl to provide most of the goals.

 

The Dutchman had already hurt that same knee in 2000 when he performed a clumsy move during a practice with PSV Eindhoven. He sustained an extensive ligament damage which ruled him out for ten months, but he returned in style and went on to enjoy a prosperous career with Manchester United.

 

 

Antonio Cassano in a scoring spree

 

At 26, Antonio Cassano is a true champion on the field, but under the sheets even more so. The controversial Italian international spoke openly of his eventful life to journalist Pierluigi Pardo, who penned Cassano’s biography called “Dico tutto” (I Say It All).

The book is bound to be a best-seller, since the Bari-born forward spoke of his turbulent childhood in the crime-ridden southern city and of his wonderful scoring streak since he became a professional footballer.

Scoring with women, that is.

Cassano admitted to having conquered between 600 and 700 girls, and we can forgive him for this approximation since it is must be hard to keep an accurate count after a while.

The fans only wish he had been nearly as prolific in front of goal and the confession will hardly amuse his current girlfriend, the 17-year-old waterpolo player Carolina Marcialis.

Antonio is also quoted as saying, “Sex and food – these are my two great passions, a perfect marriage.” At least the second part of this statement clearly shows on the size of his butt.

 

 

England to play in Spain next February

 

The friendly fixture between Spain and England is on after all, in spite of last month’s rumours emitted from the FA that the game would be cancelled due to Spain’s worrying racism record.

According to Marca daily, this week the Spanish FA (RFEF) received a conciliatory message from their English counterparts, confirming that a friendly would go on as planned on February 11th.

In October the FA alleged the February date was not suitable for them, making the Spaniards suspect England wanted to ditch the game altogether because of a number of racially coloured incidents that took place in their country.

Four years ago RFEF were fined by FIFA because of the infamous racist taunts against Ashley Cole, Wright-Phillips, Ferdinand, Jenas and Defoe.

In the meantime, the former national team coach Luis Aragonés alluded at Thierry Henry as a “black shit” and the Lewis Hamilton’s trips to Spain were also marred by insults.

Still, the FA now said there was a simple misunderstanding regarding the date, and that the fixture was never in question.

One of the major proponents of the friendly is Fabio Capello himself, who apparently lobbied with the FA leaders to go ahead with the game. The venue of the match is likely to be Valencia or Sevilla.

 

 

Corinthians back to the top flight at first attempt

 

Brazilian president’s favourite team, Corinthians of Sao Paulo, made sure of their return to the Brazileirao after one year in the second division.

With four matches remaining, Corinthians built a 13 points advantage over the second-placed Avai by beating Criciuma 2-0.

The Paulistas went down last year amidst the chaos that erupted over discoveries of corruption, match-fixing and money laundering.

Supported by a reported 13,2% of the Brazilian soccer fans, Corinthians won their last championship in 2005 thanks to Carlos Tévez and Javier Mascherano, whose signings were financed by the multinational investment fund MSI. The Brazilian Justice Department became interested in the MSI operations and issued an arrest warrant for the company’s chairman Kia Joorabchian, but last August the arrest warrant was suspended.

 

 

Real Madrid embarrassed in the Spanish Cup

Real Unión from the third division upset their somewhat more famous namesakes from Madrid by kicking them out in the fourth round of the King’s Cup.

 

The Basque team from the city of Irún went through on away goals rule by winning 3-2 at home and losing 3-4 in the return leg at Santiago Bernabeu.

The Spanish press has called the result the biggest disgrace in Real Madrid’s history, but the nine-times European champions had already been involved in a couple of resounding slip-ups in the domestic cup competition.

 

After winning their last Cup in 1993, Real lost to second and third division clubs on various occasions. In 1998, they were eliminated by Alavés, then in the Segunda División, also due to the away goals rule. Three years later, the surprise package was called Toledo, from the third division, who defeated Real by 1-0 in a single-leg tie of the the King’s Cup’s first round.

 

The following lower-league club to stun Madrid in the Cup were Valladolid in 2004/05, again thanks to having scored more away goals (0-0 at home and 1-1 at Bernabeu). Valladolid is incidentally Real’s next league rival and the word around Madrid is that coach Bernd Schuster may be sacked in case his team don’t win at the Zorrilla stadium next Saturday.

Poker Academy Texas Hold ’Em Poker Togel Singapore Software Receives Glowing Review by The Mac Observer Columnist Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus

 

Poker Academy, a leading poker software developer http://www.poker-academy.com, today announced that in the March 11, 2005 issue of The Mac Observer, columnist Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus wrote a glowing review of Poker Academy software, stating, “In a nutshell, if you’re serious about learning to play Texas Hold ’Em, or to improve your game of Texas Hold ’Em, Poker Academy is the way to go.”

 

Poker Academy, a leading situs slot poker software developer www.poker-academy.com, today announced that in the March 11, 2005 issue of The Mac Observer, columnist Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus wrote a glowing review of Poker Academy software, stating, “In a nutshell, if you’re serious about learning to play Texas Hold ’Em, or to improve your game of Texas Hold ’Em, Poker Academy is the way to go.” (For the full review, please visit www.macobserver.com/columns/rantsandraves/2005/20050311.shtml.)

 

Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus is a long-time Macintosh user and the author of 47 computer books, including Mac OS X For Dummies, Panther Edition and GarageBand for Dummies.

 

In the review, LeVitus states that when he received Poker Academy Pro Texas Hold ’Em in the mail, which was part of a CD demo insert program launched by the Company in the March 2005 issue of Card Player Magazine, “I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it [Poker Academy pretty much lives up to its own hype: ‘The world’s most advanced poker software.’ Now I can’t speak for the Windows side of things (since I don’t do Windows anymore), but there’s little question in my mind that Poker Academy Pro is the most advanced poker program for Mac OS X I’ve seen to date.”

 

LeVitus goes on the support this statement by saying the program [Poker Academy software bases its logic on more than 10 years of artificial intelligence research performed at the University of Alberta. Then he references a quote in the June 2003 issue of the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada: “The artificial intelligence researchers have moved one step closer to creating an unbeatable computer poker program. An account of their most recent program, called PsOpti – for pseudo-optimal poker program – will receive the top paper award at the world’s premier AI meeting in August.”

 

LeVitus noted that unlike the mostly predictable opponents found in other poker software, Poker Academy Pro’s computerized opponents actually adjusted to his style of play. “My big raise trick worked two or three times before one of my computerized opponents came back at me with an even bigger re-raise,” he said.

 

Continued LeVitus, “My experience with other programs caused me to assume that the ‘bot’ had the goodies (and you know what happens when you assume…). I did the prudent thing and folded my hand. But then, when I peeked at his hole cards, I was shocked to find he had absolutely nothing. His hole cards were a pair of ‘rags’ (low cards), and they weren’t even rags of the same suit. In other words, the computerized opponent won a substantial pot with a very risky bluff. When a similar situation occurred a few hands later I thought I’d call his bluff. So I raised him back; a big mistake since he had ‘the nuts,’ (the best possible hand that can be made given the five common cards on the table). Grrrrr.”

 

LeVitus wrote that “Poker Academy Pro has many features not found in other poker games, including calculated-on-the-fly pot odds, hand strength and potential ratings, and a coach that advises you whether to call, raise or fold.”

 

LeVitus then took the review to another level of Togel Singapore by providing illustrations and commentary on his own personal experience playing Poker Academy Pro. He talked about the Hand Evaluator, a feature that provides much useful information as well as advice on your best course of action: fold, call, or raise. He highlighted an in-depth hand evaluator window that offers information about your hand’s strength, possible “outs” you could draw to, and more. He touched on the nearly dozen artificial intelligence engines or computer opponents in the game. Another feature LeVitus remarked favorably on was his love for the head-to-head showdown. “That lets you simulate the final throes of tournament play, and it gives you a showdown calculator to calculate the chance of winning with any given set of cards,” he stated.

 

Finally, LeVitus, leaving no stone unturned, provided a comprehensive feature list comparison between Poker Academy and Poker Academy Pro, which has a suggested retail price of $39 and $99 respectively. (Poker Academy provided the list and gave permission to The Mac Observer to use it in the review).

 

“This is the most comprehensive review of our poker software to date,” said Kurt Lange, president of Poker Academy. “We’re couldn’t be more pleased with what Bob had to say as well as to what lengths he went to show our many rich features to his loyal readers. We here at Poker Academy take great pride in our work in developing the world’s leading Texas Hold ’Em software and are passionate about taking anyone’s Texas Hold ’Em game to the next level, whether they work in a Mac or Windows environment.”

Only tools and Pkv Poker horses

 

 

Looking back on it, marriage was probably a mistake. It’s not the compulsory reduction in alcohol consumption that I object to, or the fact that I have to endure television programmes with the word ‘vampire’ in the title, it’s the awful inane football related comments that plague my very existence. “He should be wearing gloves, it looks a bit chilly,” is a classic example, “Why is he getting so excited, it’s only a game,” is equally as Pkv Poker annoying and the often repeated “You don’t have to bet to enjoy the football,” led me to invest in a shovel.

 

As Liverpool edged out Chelsea last week, a sense of dread enveloped me as i saw her forehead wrinkle, indicating that a comment was imminent; “The Chelsea players shouldn’t be so upset, they’re going to win the league,” was the end result of her pondering, and incredibly, I had to concur. Jose’s collection of superstars just need a point against Man U to become only the 2nd team in the history of the Premiership to retain their title, but Jose will demand all three. The 11/10 on offer about a Chelsea victory should be hoovered up; their FA Cup heartache will soon be a distant memory.

 

The formbook would suggest that Tottenham have the beating of Bolton on Saturday, but I’m not so sure. Bolton have had the Indian sign over Spurs in recent seasons and go in to the match on a high after destroying Charlton last weekend. Even Martin Jol can see that Bolton look a little bit of value at 5/1.

 

If Spurs slip up, Arsenal will take full advantage at the Stadium of Light. Sunderland have been awful on the road, and strangely, even worse in front of their own supporters. Arsene has taken a few liberties with team selection in recent weeks, but he could play the under 11’s against Sunderland and still snatch a draw. Arsenal are short at 1/4, but good things come in small packages.

 

Like Jay Jay Okocha, Lua Lua is so good they named him twice. However, this isn’t a hard and fast rule, as anyone who’s seen Eric Djemba Djemba play will testify. A fit again Lua Lua holds the key to a Pompey victory at Wigan, he’s 13/2 to open the scoring. Portsmouth are a confident call at 8/5 to move a step closer to safety.

 

As West Ham have already qualified for the UEFA Cup, there’s a high probability that Alan Pardew may shuffle his pack away at West Brom; let’s hope it’s more pleasing to the eye than the previous Pardew shuffle, that was just wrong. There’s a 75% chance that the Baggies will already be relegated before the Mayday kick-off; if already down, the Albion are worth a small nibble at 6/5; if other results go their way, take a huge bite.

 

Interestingly, there’s never been a draw in five years of Premiership fixtures between Charlton and Blackburn; i use the word ‘interestingly’ in its loosest possible sense. As Charlton never win a match towards the end of a season and Blackburn are crawling to the Premiership finishing line, the long overdue draw looks a little bit big at 12/5.

 

Liverpool are the nap of the week at 4/9 at home to the Villa. The Pool are finishing the season like a train while Villa’s derby day victory is masking the worst run since Jade Goody’s marathon attempt. Peter Crouch, like me, should be ashamed of his misses over the last few months, but there is an unwritten law that ex Villa players always score against their former employers, Crouchy is 11/10 to prove the rule.
