Henry feeds on Gerrard’s generosity
Telegraph.co.uk – Mar 14, 2006
“It was like France,” admitted the England midfielder, reflecting on his gift to Henry at Euro 2004, which led to Zinedine Zidane’s winning penalty. “I was trying to take up time,” added Gerrard of yesterday’s aberration with the score at 1-1, and Liverpool down to 10 men after Xabi Alonso’s ludicrous dismissal. “I did not see Henry,” Gerrard continued. “The last player you want the ball to go to is the best player on the planet. It was completely my fault and I hold up my hands… It was the turning point. Arsenal should have been over the horizon by then anyway. With Fabregas in such form, Arsenal deserved this success. The young Spaniard created the first for Henry, sliding a fantastic pass down the inside-left channel, placing it ahead of Jamie Carragher and away from Steve Finnan. “The most important thing was the timing of the ball,” Henry said. “I know Cesc has that in his game.

English World Cup fans who give Nazi salutes face match bans

getElementById( ‘frameId459962′ ). It is not a joke or a thing to be made fun of and anyone who thinks it is is wrong. It is deeply insulting and wrong,” he said. The Home Office has coordinated the most sophisticated anti-hooligan measures yet ahead of the tournament, which will see an expected 100,000 England fans travel to watch David Beckham’s side. For the first time uniformed British officers will be on duty in Germany with limited powers of arrest. Officials from the Crown Prosecution Service will also travel to compile evidence so even if individuals are simply deported the British courts will be able to pursue banning orders… The sensitivity surrounding England’s travelling presence has been at the heart of British police planning for the World Cup, and both the police and the Home Office have worked with supporters’ groups to try to encourage self-policing. The British authorities have attempted to impress on the German authorities the need to police on the basis of behaviour rather than reputation. At England’s last nine matches there were just five arrests, and of 53 arrests at Euro 2004 just one is recorded as football-related. Mr Clarke called on supporters to enjoy the tournament in the spirit of the “modern relationship” between the countries. Significant concerns remain, including the German attitude to several of the more offensive but popular England supporters’ songs. One, “Ten German bombers” praises the RAF’s defence of the UK, while the theme from the PoW movie The Great Escape has become the unofficial anthem. Stephen Thomas, the assistant chief constable of Manchester police and Association of Chief Police Officers representative on football security, said talks were continuing with the German authorities about their attitude to such songs.

Gerrard blunder sets up Arsenal
Jamaica Gleaner – Mar 13, 2006
Henry’s goal came a minute after Spaniard Xabi Alonso had been sent off for his second yellow card. Luis Garcia had hauled Liverpool level on 76 minutes. “I saw that he could not see I was waiting (to intercept Gerrard’s pass),” Henry told Sky Sports TV. “I gambled, I do it every game. “Henry also seized on a Gerrard backpass in France’s 2-1 victory over England at Euro 2004, the Liverpool midfielder’s blunder leading to David James bringing down Henry and Zinedine Zidane scoring the winner from the penalty spot in injury time. Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez blamed referee Steve Bennett for the defeat at Highbury, saying midfielder Alonso’s dismissal had proved crucial. “It was a big mistake,” he said of Alonso’s second yellow card for his innocuous challenge on fullback Mathieu Flamini… “I saw that he could not see I was waiting (to intercept Gerrard’s pass),” Henry told Sky Sports TV. “I gambled, I do it every game. “Henry also seized on a Gerrard backpass in France’s 2-1 victory over England at Euro 2004, the Liverpool midfielder’s blunder leading to David James bringing down Henry and Zinedine Zidane scoring the winner from the penalty spot in injury time.

We are all disappointed.

BBC News – Mar 12, 2006
The game was poised at 1-1 before the late error and Gerrard said: “We could have gone away and nicked a draw but I’ve made a stupid mistake. “I thought I’d knock it back to the keeper, waste a bit of time, but Henry was hiding behind the centre-backs. “If there’s only one player you don’t want to it fall to it’s Henry. ”

But Gerrard felt he wasn’t the only one to have made a bad mistake.

I highly recommend the wholesale football jerseys china compression short w/cup setup mentioned by Lisa. My son is in his 3rd year of needing to wear a cup. We went with the jock + cup setup the first two years, and it was the source of a lot of arguments the waistband was too tight, the straps around his butt bothered him, the jockstrap pulled the cup between his legs and chafed him, and on and on and on.
