Riskiest online searches list for footballers Cybercriminals are most likely to use names of famous footballers like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to lure netizens to malicious webpages designed to infect them with malware, cyber security firm McAfee said. McAfee, part of Intel Security, has brought out ‘Red Card Club’ list showcasing the top 11 Brazil-bound football players whose web pages are considered to be risky for fans to search for online. Other names in include Spain’s Iker Cassillas, Karim Ziani (Algeria), Karim Benzema (France), Paulinho (Brazil), Edinson Cavani (Uruguay), Fernando Torres (Spain), Eden Hazard (Belgium) and Gerard Pique (Spain).
Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the world's most marketable footballer. The 29-year-old Portuguese forward may have missed out on La Liga title but, after ending the season by winning the Champions League, Ronaldo can look forward to the World Cup knowing he is the most liked player on the planet. It is based on marketing research that involved a global study looking at measured perceptions of over 6,500 people in 13 countries. The index used measured the public perception of eight different attributes of the players including appeal and influence on modern society. Almost 84 per cent of people surveyed had heard of Ronaldo with 72 per cent revealing they 'liked' the former Manchester United star. Lionel Messi was second ahead of his Barcelona team-mate Gerard Pique whose global presence has risen thanks to his relationship with singer Shakira. Fernando Torres may have struggled for form since his move to Chelsea, but being well known in markets like China has contributed to the strik ...
Copied! What if footballers gave an exam ?? Let’s see what they have to say- Lionel Messi - I came first, again. But I must confess that I cheated from Xavi and Iniesta.

Carles Puyol - I wasn’t able to attend the exambecause I got injured a day before. John Terry - I passed, but wasn’t that invigilator hot? Ryan Giggs - I was too old to give the exam.

Jose Mourinho - I don’t give exams because I am the special one. Xavi -I was busy showing my answers to Messi. Sergio Ramos - I think my talent was ‘too high’ to give an exam. Robin Van Persie ...

Chelsea tackle Toffees, Gunners aim high (AFP) Friday 21 February 2014 Jose Mourinho will need another inspired display from in-form Eden Hazard as Chelsea try to cement their position on top of the Premier League against Everton on Saturday. Mourinho's side have reached the summit despite just 11 league goals this season from their three main strikers, Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o, but fortunately for the Blues their Belgium midfielder Eden Hazard has been in sublime form. Hazard has netted 12 times in 26 league appearances, while also setting up countless chances for his team-mates, and boss Mourinho recently lauded the 23-year-old as Europe's most talented young player. Chelsea defender David Luiz has also been impressed by Hazard's rise since moving to the Bridge from French club Lille in 2012 and the Brazilian is confident his team-mate can one day surpass Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the best in the world. "He can be one day the best player in the world," Luiz said. "I'm so ha ...
I'm mad at Patrick for comparing Fernando Torres to Lionel Messi. Like no.
STOP HAZARD,STOP CHELSEA ATTACKING THREAT??. Eden Hazard is undoubtedly a special talent&the sort of player that can win you titles,but have Chelsea become over-reliant on the Belgian to carry their attack this season?. Since Jose Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge the Blues have elevated their status to potential title contenders,&Hazard is showing signs that he is beginning to believe he can one day achieve the level of a Cristiano Ronaldo or a Lionel Messi. The 23yrs-old has wowed the Chelsea faithful with his skills since his arrival last season&has already improved on his goal tally over his debut campaign at the club,but there’s a huge burden on his shoulders as the main man in the attack&his team-mates aren’t stepping up on the days Hazard isn’t shining. Hazard was instrumental in the victories over Man City&Newcastle United in the Premier League – demonstrating the damage he can do – but was not at the peak of his powers away at West Brom&was effectively nullified on Chelsea’s return ...

Ballon Dor D Day ( WHO THE CAP FIT) More Ballon d’Or pain for Spain - Football’s greatest international side will endure another year without a winner While Vicente del Bosque is likely to claim the coach's vote, his players are yet to be recognised in the annual award and Andres Iniesta will be the latest to miss out on Monday ￼￼ ￼￼ ￼￼ For the fifth year running, there is a Spaniard shortlisted in the final three candidates to win the Ballon d'Or. But just like in the 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 editions of the prestigious prize, Spain will almost certainly not be celebrating an individual victory for one of their players in Zurich on Monday. Spain's story in the Ballon d'Or is one of near misses in recent years. Fernando Torres came third in 2008, Xavi completed the podium in 2009, he and Andres Iniesta finished behind Lionel Messi in 2010 and Xavi made up the numbers again last year. This time it will be Iniesta who misses out again, leaving perhaps the most dominant international team in ...
on Cristiano Ronaldo... "Portugal have a national team called Cristiano Ronaldo and a group of players who run after him." - former Portugal manager Carlos Queiroz. "He's an unbelievable player. We have a pantheon of great players and Ronaldo definitely compares with any of them. He had a bit of the Eric Cantona about him. He was definitely good value for Madrid." - Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United manager. on Andres Iniesta... "The press often ask me about whether Messi or Ronaldo is the best, but for me something is very clear: Andres Iniesta is the number one. He is able to do even more difficult things on the pitch. He is magic with the ball and so influential." - David Silva, Manchester City midfielder. "When he has the ball, it's like everything else stops – like the camera is going in slow motion. I've been playing with him since we were 15, and I have never, ever seen him play badly." - Fernando Torres, Chelsea striker. on Lionel Messi... "I feel sorry for those who want to compete for Messi ...
Lampard was pivotal in the semi-finals of the 2011–12 UEFA Champions League against the heavily favoured defending champions Barcelona. Bookmakers had Barcelona on the shortest odds to win a second consecutive Champions League title, and various commentators opined that Chelsea would have to produce their best two games of the season - and hope that Barca played their worst two - in order to upset the Catalan giants. In the first leg at Stamford Bridge, Lampard stripped Lionel Messi off the ball then played a cross-field pass to Ramires who setup Drogba for the only goal of the game giving Chelsea a 1–0 advantage. In the second leg at Camp Nou, Lampard assumed the captaincy after Terry was sent off early in the game. Down 2–0 to Barca just before half-time, Lampard assisted Ramires' goal with a through-pass which levelled the aggregate score at 2–2 while putting Chelsea ahead on away goals. Chelsea teammate Fernando Torres added another goal in stoppage time to give Chelsea a 3–2 victory ...
Fernando Torres and Mario Balotelli silence critics by matching Lionel Messi and Ronaldo's 2013 goal tally
This news comes in the same week that David Silva and Yaya Toure were named on the FIFPro midfielders shortlist, Vincent Kompany was recognised with a place on the defenders list and Joe Hart was one of only five goalkeepers put forward for the accolade. Mario´s is the only new name from 2011´s forwards list and has been rewarded for an inspired Euro 2012 showing for Italy where he tied with Fernando Torres for the Golden Boot with three goals, including two in the semi-final against Germany. As we told you last week, Sergio is officially one of the deadliest strikers in Premier League history, despite only landing on these shores 18 months ago. He became City´s first 30 goal striker in a decade last season and has started this season in similarly prolific style, with 11 goals for club and country so far. Considering that the forwards list contains the names of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who are joined by Andres Iniesta in the three-man shortlist for the Ballon d´Or itself, perhaps there will ...

Informed conjecture would suggest that Cristiano Ronaldo's salary is a match for almost any player in the world - except that of Samuel Eto'o, of course - but the Real Madrid star's wages are apparently less than you may think. According to Marca, Ronaldo is ranked only tenth in the world when it comes to wages paid by their clubs, with the likes of little known Dario Conca raking in more in than the far more illustrious Portuguese. GMF has outlined the Top Ten earners, according to our friends in Spain, and you may find one of two surprises along the way... 1. Samuel Eto'o - Anzhi Makhachkala: €20m-a- year 2. Zlatan Ibrahimovic - Paris Saint-Germain: €14.5m 3. Wanye Rooney - Manchester United: €13.8m 4. Yaya Toure - Manchester City: €13m 5. Sergio Aguero - Manchester City: €12.5m 6. Didier Drogba - Shanghai Shenhua: €12m 7. Fernando Torres - Chelsea: €10.8m 8. Dario Conca - Guangzho Evergrande: €10.6m 9. Lionel Messi - Barcelona: €10.5m 10. Cristiano Ronaldo - Real Madrid: €10m

Manchester City once failed with an accidental £30 million bid for Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, it has been revealed. City have shown themselves to be willing to splash the cash in order to land big names ever since being taken over by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, having spent over £30 million on each of Robinho and Sergio Aguero, and over £25 million on Edin Dzeko, Carlos Tevez, Emmanuel Adebayor, Mario Balotelli, David Silva and Yaya Toure. Upon arriving at the club in 2008, City’s owners wanted to make a landmark signing and eventually splashed out on Robinho from Real Madrid, having just missed out on Kaka, Fernando Torres and Dimitar Berbatov as well. Now former Chief Executive Garry Cook, who famously accused Kaka of ‘bottling’ his move to the Etihad Stadium, has revealed that in the confusion of their attempts to land a big name in the summer of 2008, contact was made with Barcelona over the prospect of landing Messi.

I heartily congratulate Chelsea for having shown courage and determination to beat the UEFA and FIFA adopted team. Most credit to the entire Chelsea team and management but special credits to Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, Ramires Ashley Cole and Peter Chec. It was Frank Lampard who stole the ball from Lionel Messi and squared it to Ramires who then gave the final pass to Didier Drogba for their winning goal at Stamford Bridge in London in the first leg. Again it was the same combination between Frank Lampard and Ramires which resulted in the amazing away goal which gave Chelsea hope and stunned Barcelona and their fans. Oh! and Fernando Torres, he did it again against Barcelona last night. At last he has paid back part of the massive investment in him (50 million pounds). With that final goal which secured Chelsea firmly into the final, Torres not only vindicated himself but paid for the massive transfer fee paid out to sign him. Chelsea will earn more than 50 million pounds if they win the final and alre ...
Chelsea reached the Champions League final despite John Terry's sending off to seal a truly remarkable two-legged victory over Barcelona. The Blues were in serious trouble after goals from Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta put Barca ahead either side of Terry's dismissal for violent conduct. But Ramires strode forward to chip Chelsea ahead on away goals. Lionel Messi hit the bar with a penalty for Barca before Fernando Torres ran clear to seal the tie in injury time. Earlier in the week, Torres had said "the best team does not always win" . His words were prophetic for England's last men standing in Europe as they scrapped their way past the defending champions and into the final in Munich on 19 May. That it was Torres who scored the goal after being so maligned during his time at Stamford Bridge made for the perfect ending to a famous night for Roberto Di Matteo's side.
Chelsea stun Barcelona in Nou Camp. Many says is Mission Impossible that the Bridge is too far with Barcelona .The last 18months got forgotten in 2secs with Fernando Torres scoring aginst Barcelona. Chelsea FC came from 2 goals down and survived the dismissal of Captain John Terry as well as Lionel Messi's missed penalty in Eliminating the Champions. Ramires scored the vital away goal followed by Fernando Torres injury time goal to seal 10 man Chelsea win over Barcelona and to the Final in Munich. Pep Guardiola says he will weigh up in coming days whether to continue as coach with Barcelona. E clear for Guardiola
John Terry issued an immediate apology to his Chelsea team-mates for the red card which left them facing a backs-to-the-wall battle against Barcelona. The Blues skipper was given his marching orders by referee Cuneyt Cakir in the first half of their UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg for a blatant knee into the back of Alexis Sanchez. But despite their numerical disadvantage, the Stamford Bridge side hit back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Camp Nou and progress 3-2 on aggregate. Goals from Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta either side of Terry's moment of madness put the Catalan club in control, only for Ramires to put the Blues back on top with a sublime chip shortly before half-time. Lionel Messi then fired a penalty against the bar early in the second half and later hit the base of the excellent Petr Cech's post, before substitute Fernando Torres sparked scenes of jubilation with a breakaway strike in added time. Terry, who will now miss the 19th May final through suspension, admitted after the ...
Summary There cannot have been many more nights more dramatic nor heroic in the history of Chelsea Football Club. Having gone 2-0 behind on the night and one man down in the first half, we scored in stoppage time at the end of each half. John Terry was the man sent off. Ramires was the first Chelsea scorer with a brilliant goal before Lionel Messi missed the chance to put his side 3-1 ahead when he wasted a penalty. With the pressure on, substitute Fernando Torres scored a late, late goal on the counter-attack from his own half. The only disappointment on a joyous night is that Ramires, Branislav Ivanovic and Raul Meireles were all booked and so will join the skipper in missing the Final. Team news Didier Drogba was passed fit soRoberto Di Matteo named the same side as the first leg. Barcelona did change however, bringing in Gerard Pique and going tothree at the back. Both full-backs at the Bridge were on the bench with Issac Cuenca coming in and playing wide on the right with Cesc Fabregas on the left. T ...

FIVE THINGS ♍♈ BELOVED CHELSEA NEED Τ̅☺ DO Τ̅☺ BEAT BARCELONA IN UEFA Champions League SEMI-FINAL: Chelsea just got over the line against Benfica in the Champions League quarter-finals. Play like that against Barcelona and it could get very ugly indeed for Roberto Di Matteo's side. So what do they need to do to get the better of Lionel Messi, Xavi and the rest of the European Champions? PICK A CENTRE-FORWARD: Get this one wrong and Chelsea’s potency up front gets severely compromised, giving Barcelona an even bigger advantage than the one they already hold. And it is, of course, a straight choice between Fernando Torres and Didier Drogba. Well, going on the performance at Stamford Bridge last night, when Torres patently failed to kick on from his goal at Aston Villa at the weekend, when his confidence clearly waned as the match wore on, you would have to plump for Drogba. That way, Chelsea can play the more direct forward ball to cut out Barca’s midfield pressing. That way, they stand a mu ...
