Goal.com – Talking Point: Moratti’s Desired Revolution
Goal.com – Jan 1, 2007
With Figo likely to leave at the end of the season, one can understand the need for a reinforcement. Besides, Beckham pays his own salary, and that of others, so his is never a futile purchase. However, if there is one thing that is certain, it is that he does not command an automatic starting spot. His ability to deal with the tight marking from full-backs in Italy is another thing in question. As for Messi, true, he would bring more imagination to the team, something they still lack when in a spot of bother. His presence could allow Inter to play some fantastic ‘feel good’ football. Yet, it is something which could work either way.

Goal.com – Prem Reaction: Niemi Injury Overshadows Fulham Draw
Goal.com – Jan 1, 2007
I knew it would be a tight match because we’ve had so many games recently and the guys are physically and mentally tired. On chances we should have won but it could have been worse. Watford play it long and it’s hard not to get sucked into that sort of game. ”
Watford manager Adrian Boothroyd read the riot act to his players at half-timeafter Fulham had dominated the opening 45 minutes. He said: “That was an exciting match for the neutral. From our point of view it was an appalling first half, probably the worst since I’ve been manager. We didn’t do that much better in the second half but at least we stayed in there and we hit the woodwork.

Goal.com – Jan 1, 2007
Ghaly managed to play on until half-time, while Pamarot had to come off soon after due to injury himself. Jol said: “I asked the referee and he said it wasn’t a foul but when I looked at it again I thought it was cynical. “I know Pamarot and he is a terrific lad, exceptional, but not when he is on the pitch. Ghaly was unbelievable. I thought at first the doctor told me he lost his false teeth but he was really saying four teeth. “Most people would have gone to hospital and stayed there a week with that injury but he went back on to play and it was only later I noticed some dangerous signs and took him off again for the second half. “If I had known the full extent of the injury I would never have let Ghaly go back on but I took notice of my doctor.

Ferguson and Mourinho going to the wire: In 2005 and 2006 Chelsea ran away with the Premiership. They start the New Year six points behind Manchester United in the title race. The longer it stays that way the crazier Jose Mourinho is going to get, so obviously that will keep us entertained.

Goal.com – New Year In The Premiership…
Goal.com – Jan 1, 2007
The Portuguese tactician insists that the gap between Chelsea and United is
eminently bridgeable, but following the Blues’ draw with Fulham he said:

“In this moment Chelsea
cannot defend. I am the first to know that. Maybe we are not as good as we think,
maybe I am not such a good boss, maybe the players are not such good
players. ”

He criticized certain players by name and declared: “Didier Drogba is
the only one doing his best at the moment,” adding: “It is difficult
but I hope that John Terry and Petr Cech are back soon. I don’t need millions
next month; I need the best goalkeeper and the best central defender in the
world back. ”

Without the injured Terry, Chelsea
have conceded eight goals – two in every game, which is an uncharacteristic
statistic since Mourinho took over. Portsmouth defender Sol Campbell has been
linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in recent days, and Valencia’s David Villa is rumored
to be a target to strengthen an attack that has become over-reliant on 20-goal
Drogba.

Chelsea jave been linked with a move for the ex-Arsenal and Spurs man. And Redknapp said he would be powerless to prevent Campbell, 32, from leaving if he wanted to go. He said: “You wouldn’t want to lose him but if he said he wanted to go what could you do? Not a lot really. “I hope Chelsea are not interested in him.

Goal.com – Prem Reaction: Viduka’s A Class Act, Says Southgate
Goal.com – Jan 1, 2007
Southgate said: “Mark is a class act and I think he has got as much ability as any striker I played with. He has made a massive difference to us in this period since he came back into the side. “There is a misconception about him that people have because of the way he runs and the way he moves but not everybody can tear around the field for 90 minutes and those who do possibly aren’t as effective. “I appreciate what he gives us on and off the field. I have enjoyed my time working with him as both a player and a manager and I want that to continue beyond the end of this season. ”
