Reuters with an article on the importance of midfielder Juan Roman Riquelme to Argentina, even though he has not played this fall for Villareal who, for some bizarre reason, hate him.

Pellegrini = epitome of River.
Riquelme = epitome of Boca.

Do the math.

That's why River are "las gallinas."

Chilean news did a feature on Tevez and his upbringing (bad neighborhood) and how proud he is of where his comes from. They also asked him who the best coach he'd ever had is and he said Bielsa.

Should be interesting to see how the Argentines receive Bielsa as Chile's coach on Saturday.
