Hi everybody, I’ve been away from the computer for a couple of days and so I didn’t update this blog during the weekend.
There were not so many news worthy of a mention but here are some things that happened while I also start to take a look at what’s coming up in this blog.
-BASILE went to Mexico with BOCA JUNIORS and they won the Copa Puebla (a friendly contest against Mexican side CRUZ AZUL. They won the penalty shoot-out after a 2-2 draw (with both of BOCA’s goals coming from cult hero Guillermo BARROS SCHELOTTO).
-Mauricio MACRI is also in Mexico and he will meet up with Ricardo LA VOLPE to talk about his possible role as manager of BOCA JUNIORS.
-Diego MARADONA has been offered the job by MACRI before, but the legendary champion of the World in 1986 said ‘No, thank you’.
-Carlos TEVEZ returned to action for CORINTHIANS (Brazil). He scored in a 2-2 draw against FORTALEZA and he made a gesture towards his team’s supporters asking for silence, after the ‘torcida’ spent most of the game and the previous days, insulting their players for a bad run of results that have them in the relegation zone. After the match, the CORINTHIANS supporters waited for TEVEZ outside the stadium and they insulted him for a while. One fan even kicked TEVEZ’s car when he was leaving the stadium.
-Juan Pablo SORIN could be on his way to BOLTON WANDERERS. An offer by the English Premiership outfit has been accepted by VILLARREAL but now it remains to be seen if STUTTGART, PORTSMOUTH and INTER MILAN will continue to fight for Argentina’s captain.
-Javier SAVIOLA could also be on his way to BOLTON. No further news about his situation, but a move to the Reebok Stadium looks probable.
-We’ll take a look to the national basketball team and its final preparation towards Japan 2006.
-We anticipate the start of the Apertura and the most important leagues in Europe, following the argentine players every weekend.
