a boot that is sure to upset the "black boot" only dinosaurs. This is the first reveal at the Nike "Write History" event in London. Cristiano Ronaldo came to speak about how much he loves the boots and be interviewed. Now on to the next part of the event...

Jose and the Lega Calcio officials are at it again. After viewing what he felt to be ridiculous calls Jose Mourinho turned to the TV cameras and made a gesture shown in the picture above which is to demonstrate that he feels handcuffed by the people in charge. This is the second game in the last 2-4 games inter has played that he has had two men sent off and also noticably bad officiating for the chasing pack of teams has taken place. I have to say I feel for Jose and can't wait until Inter plays Chelsea this week.
Quite a weekend. Everton over Man United 3-1 with Landon Donovan playing quite a game. Liverpool drawing with Man City in an absolutely horrible match. Inter Milan Proving they are truly Jose's team and get a draw after losing two men to red cards in the 38th minute. The fight and self belief they show is something very inspiring. Barca get a fairly easy victory over the clown suits i.e. Racing Santander. Probably the biggest statement game of the weekend was Real Madrid showing that they might not be quite firing on all cylinders yet but when they are it's scary. Check the video below to see the full highlights.

AC Milan 2-3 Manchester United
AC Milan...where do I start? You guys have got to learn to finish better! You let United stay in the game and Rooney will punish you or in Scholes case he will make a mistake and it will still end up in the net. Even though Rooney got the brace I think Ronaldinho was the best player on the night and is back to reminding everyone what a joy to watch he is.
Lyon 1-0 Real Madrid
Lyon got a win and deserved it. Madrid maybe spending all that money isn't the wisest thing if the players can't play together...
FC Porto 2-1 Arsenal
Look maybe the referee shouldn't have given the ball to the Porto player but in law he wasn't wrong and if Fabianski didn't pick it up you would have never been in that situation, Wenger *giving him a scornful eye*
Fiorentina 1-2 Bayern Munich
I expected better from Bayern but luckily for them the referee wanted to make sure they won.

As I begin more work for our April soccer tournament, Legendinhos Youth Classic at Mike Rose Soccer Complex in Memphis [/shameless plug.] I want to dedicate this video to a very good friend of mine, just relax and remember just like Ronaldo you can't be stopped. For the rest of you if you don't know who the real Ronaldo is please educate yourself by watching the greatness of the all time leading scorer of the World Cup.

In what may not have been the most beautiful game Liverpool won what could surely be called a gripping game. With Krygiakos being sent off around the 30 minute mark LFC rallied to take the lead through Dirk Kuyt and not only held on but threatened to get more. A fantastic performance from a team that has been lacking heart and confidence for most of the season. Also it never hurts when every team around Liverpool dropped points. Come on you reds!!!

Does it get much funnier than this...

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben may have to play without his thermal tights - or change their color.
Sporting director Christian Nerlinger says the German football federation (DFB) is not happy that Robben is playing in gray-colored tights and not in red ones, the usual color of Bayern's shorts.
Nerlinger says DFB rules stipulate the long outfit has to have the same color as the shorts and that Bayern is getting him red tights.
Robben has scored two goals in the last three games playing with the tights.
