Rumors & Realities: No Harm Lies In Charming Lies

Lying is a bad thing! Remember that and remember to teach that to your kids!

However, in the football world, there is no harm in charming lies-at least that's the case when journals and/or websites fabricate stories to entertain their readers with worthless pieces of news.

While Venice's mood cries out "love is in the air", R-R starts the rumors from near the factories of Turin where "smoke is in the air".

Reports from entertaing websites claimed on February 12 that Vincenzo Iaquinta is proud to be a super-sub at Juventus.

A week later-just to keep the entertainment level up- "reports" had to mention that Iaquinta is fed up of life in Turin and wants a move away from The Old Lady.

Possible destinations include UEFA Cup champions Zenit and Roma.

Meanwhile "fashion is in the air" in Milan as David Beckham begs-in a fashionable manner-to quit LA Galaxy after reliving the joy of top class football.

Becks came on in the last UEFA Cup match that saw Milan face Werder Bremen on German soil to do what he does best-a thousand dollar-worth, one minute-long cameo!

Will he go? Won't he just go? Well, according to the latest and most charming rumors, a deal is likely to go through with negotiations going well between LA and Milano.

Some media outlets create their own news-but others are respectable and only misquote players.

Apparently, Diego's words "Calcio is the best league in the world" was translated to "I want to go to Juventus".

It seems Diego has been wise and dropped a "hint" that he wants to move. "Don't club chairmen every get those hints?" R-R wonders.

Meanwhile in England, Emmanuel Adebayor is linked to a move to Barcelona, Cristiano Ronaldo is linked to Real Madrid. Yes, you read it right and you read the date right too. It's February 2009 and still the soap operas that started in the summer continue.

Bolton manager Gary Megson believes it was a ridiculous decision by Chelsea to sack Luiz Felipe Scolari. So do we, Mr. Megson.

While ex-Fulham midfielder and Hull City's most expensive buy, Jimmy Bullard, is out for the rest of the season. 

That's it for R-R for now.
