Fiorentina sack Delio Rossi
Oh s*** :blink: I know one Finnish ice hokey coach who was sacked from Russian KHL team for bullying players, and then about year later the same team hired him back :huh:

A few months ago, I applied for Le Mans accreditation. A few weeks back, I got this email from ACO

We have taken note of your accreditation request for (MY NAME) for the 24 HEURES DU MANS 2012 which is recorded on our accreditation website.
However, your file is incomplete, thank you for sending us the missing parts within 10 days. After this deadline your accreditation will be refused:

So, I emailed back (albeit quite late) saying that as we are web, we can't exactly send stuff in the post. Ie, help.

Today, I get the same email as above sent back.

Seriously, f*** ACO. There's a Mini festival at Brands the same weekend :thumbsup:

Go Bayern :D

Manchester City did it in the most dramatic way with 2 goals in extra time. Unbelieveble.

0:0 at half time. Not that surprising. I 'll blame Gomez if Bayern loses this game :zz:

Bayern was well and truly robbed. Bad football financed by Russia oil got away with the title. Cruel world!

Robben made Netherlands lose the final of WC. He was the reason behind the disappointment of Bayern. Useless player, they should fire him.

Gomez? Is that a player really? he can't control the ball :zz:

Di Mateo: Coach of the year. I am happy for him.

I don't get the 'Bayern were robbed' attitude. Defending is equally as important as attacking. Robben stuffed his penalty, Gomez missed several sitters, Olic missed a glorious chance. They had no strategy against Chelsea.

It isn't the prettiest football, not by far. But just because it isn't the Barcelona tiki-taka doesn't mean it's bad football. On the night, Chelsea deserved it.

Chelsea didn't even defend well, just look at the tremendous amount of chances Bayern had. The whole game was under control right from the beginning. Chelsea's offense was a joke and suffered from the Catenaccio. They had no chances at all and were lucky to score after their only corner.

Since 2001 no German team has won an international title, despite standing in a World Cup final (2002), an European Championship final (2008) & three Champions League finals (2002;2010;2012). Just one chance left in 2012...
