I didn't know about the back injury. Hopefully it won't be a serious problem in the future.
I was wondering how Joao Carlos Teixeira was doing in Liverpool's reserve/youth squad. He is rated highly in Portugal, and is expected to start for us in this summer's U-20 world cup. I have only managed to watch him 2 or 3 times, but he looked quite promising.
No problem, Vince. It happens. Great list by the way!
Yeah, of course. I knew it was a joke, but I was thinking maybe some people would get the impression it was a quote. Thanks for the thanks!
I read all of your articles. You and Karl Matchett are my only must read writers on BR. Keep up the fine articles...
We're in this fight together, and trust me, you deserved the praise for that. Sent it out and quoted that line on my Twitter. You deserve to get paid for all you do. I now hard it is (12-14 hours into tonight's story and still have two slides and conclusion to hammer out).
Don't worry about any CFC trash talking. At 52 and living in Las Vegas, I just don't have the time or psychic energy to hate any sports teams. I imagine the Raiders are the one I blast the most but if you saw some of their fans out here I'm sure you'd understand. I will always appreciate LFC, Spurs, Arsenal, City and even United to a degree although I take particular glee in beating them as we did this morning. Nothing like writing 12 hours, watching a match at 4:30 a.m. and then trying to get some sleep.
Hang tough my man and know I'm pulling for you and here if you ever need anything.
Okay, I read it and it's A+ stuff. Crisp, clean and the best thing I've read about the whole situation, albeit three months after the fact.
This stick out big:
"But what a mistake it would be for Benitez to take the Chelsea job, for both Benitez himself and for Abramovich."
Have truer words ever been spoken? And all of the other slides were as tight as a frog's ass and rang true. You sound like me through it, bitching about Abramovich's ego and ignorance of how he's perceived through all this. I sometime read some of the best stuff on B/R but am aware outsider may see it as just a "blog" written by fans. If they only knew you were a Liverpool guy Vince! Big respect on this one and again, tweet me ones like this you're proud of or want a second look. I wish I had people to has my stuff out with. I know we sort of do, but it's hard not really being an employee and having dudes in India, England, Hong Kong, the US, Egypt to ask for advice when you know they're busy as a writer and with their real lives and on different time zones.
This story could have been published in ANY newspaper/website ANYWHERE and is a testament to your talent and knowledge. I actually saved it in my "Bookmarks" to cross-check some of my stuff in the future. Now if I can only remember it's there. I am 52, unemployed and much of this is overwhelming to me despite doing it for 14 months now. At least my passion for the sport and writing keeps me doing it. All the best Vince and keep busting. And I know, like myself, you must miss having and reading our boy Micheal Cerna in here. Like you, he got game. Peace brother.
Sorry I didn't see your post in here before (three months ago). Seldom look in here with all the other places to be reading things. Need to start doing so but I'm sure you understand how time-intensive B/R can be. And not making money when working 30-45 hours a week on something gets frustrating and leaves little time for ancillary stuff. I'll give it a (LATE) read and report back. Need eight, 36-hour days a week. You know you can tweet me heads ups or story links if you want my input. And, love Liverpool to crush Villa this morning. On in five hours here. There's that wretched TIME thing again. Will report back in a minute brother.
That got edited quickly! I'll give it a read.
