Yeah he scored a big goal, but Drogba is the one who guided them into the record books.

That 50m won the corner that led to Drogba's goal. I know, I'm reaching, but you take what you get.

I thought Torres was much better today. The midfield and forwards in general (on both teams) were unconvincing. But at least Torres was trying to impress from the first minute.

If I'm thinking of the right shot, that was on Torres' left foot. Hes mostly a righty. The fact that he got that amount of power with a left footed strike and sent it close to the frame alone is pretty solid

To be fair for Cazorla's shot, the ball was bouncing

I miss the old Liverpool Torres. He was such fun to watch (When not playing against Arsenal!)

no point arguing. he will never be worth the 50 they paid for him. when in form, torres is incredibly good, but even then he is still not worth 50.




btw nothing like being booed on your coaching debut

Tottenham Hotspur fans were subjected to antisemitic abuse from a section of the travelling West Ham United support during their 3-1 derby victory.

The Football Association will consider whether to investigate the matter, after it studies reports from the various match officials and delegates and, although the managers from both clubs were nervous about making comment, the situation brought discomfort to Tottenham.

It was only last Thursday that a group of the club's travelling fans were attacked in Rome, before the Europa League tie against Lazio and, inside the Olympic Stadium, there were antisemitic taunts from some of the Lazio support. Uefa has opened an investigation and is expected to pronounce on the subject this week.

At the derby here in London, West Ham supporters chanted "Viva Lazio", along with other more unsavoury chants. There was also hissing from the away seats, supposedly in imitation of the sound of gas.

'Maybe they were the same people who brought shame to West Ham with the unforgivable antisemitic chants that blighted Sunday's match at White Hart Lane, not to mention the glorifying of attacks on Spurs supporters by Italian supporters in Rome last week which left one supporter fighting for his life in hospital. Nazi salutes, hissing to mimic the gas chambers and chants of "Adolf Hitler, he's coming for you", "You're getting gassed in the morning" and "Viva Lazio". Believe it or not, and it is astounding that this still needs saying, the Holocaust is not funny.'

...the whole article, from a West Ham fan, is well worth the read.

Oh unfortunately I know.
France is not stranger to antisemitism and racism (though I never heard about those gas sounds yet).

But here on HFBoards, you can read hundreds of pages about the racism of eastern countries. And only eastern countries.

Well to deny that in Eastern European countries racism is more rampant, or should I say more vocal and freely accepted is frankly naive

Nothing new with West Ham fans. The FA has just given them slaps on the wrists every time it happens so they can go back to whining about UEFA being lenient about racism.
