-Andrew Dixon from the GolNoir always writes good soccer stuff. This week he does a little A-Z for 2005.

-Liverpool and Everton play today for the 202nd time! Holy shit that's a lot of opportunities to build up some hatred!

-Maradona has been offered a deal to play for Excursionistas who are in Argentina's fourth division - Primera C. What a great name for a team. I wanna play for them. My instincts tell me that this deal will not happen for the formerly bloated one - I mean Maradona, not me. Well actually I'm kinda bloated too, but at least have the height to balance it off a little.
-Speaking of playing when yer old... I ran into my friend Chris on the bus the other day, and he retold a great John Peel story. When Peel turned 50 he said on his radio show something like: "Well, I guess I am finally too old now to ever fulfill my dream of suiting up for Liverpool, but I bet I could still see some playing time for one of the London clubs." Brilliant as always from Peel. Rest In Peace amigo.
