Gerard Pique Baby Tweet Prank on Fool’s Day?

About an hour ago, twitter receive the surprise of Shakira newborn baby through her boyfriend, Gerard Pique twitter account. Even though the Spanish soccer player credibility has been blinded taken for truth, we can avoid the fact of Fools Day celebrated on December 28 in many parts of the world.

With the message “Our child has been born. We are very happy. Thanks you all for your messages” Pique convinced his followers through his verified twitter account (@3gerardpique). No picture of the baby has been uploaded.

Coming to a common sense, it is quite rare that news about Shakira entering in labour hasn’t been posted. Shakira is approximately 8 months pregnant so a preterm delivery can happen. We are 80% going that is a Fools Day prank, but the true fun will be regarding all the angry responses towards Fc Barcelona centre-back joke.

So sorry for all the celebrities who wanted to play pranks on twitter, Shakira’s man has already came first.

O’Rei Messi y el Mejor Año de la Historia del Fútbol

Lionel Messi  en esta temporada mejoró sus marcas goleadoras. En lo que resta del 2012 busca convertirse en leyenda y ser el límite de los récords.

El crack argentino puede convertirse este año en el mayor goleador de la historia del fútbol. Hasta el Tiempo Transcurrido de este año, Messi convirtió 80 goles; superó la marca de lograda por Pelé y ahora busca completar así el mejor año para un jugador en la historia del fútbol.

Para eso, Lionel Messi deberá convertir 5 goles más lo que queda del 2012 para alcanzar a Gerd Müller, que en 1972 anotó 85 y es hasta el momento el futbolista con más tantos anotados en un mismo año.

Otro de los apartados que le quedan batir es en los Hat-Trick, donde el goleador alemán cuenta con ocho en un mismo año, mientras que el de rosario tiene seis y aun le quedan 10  juegos por disputar: 5 por Liga, 3 de Copa del Rey (En el supuesto caso de que pasen a Octavos de Final), se impuso 3 a 0 al Alavés en la ida y le queda la vuelta, ademas del último por Champions League.

Si marca en uno de esos encuentros, alcanzará la cifra de 41 partidos convirtiendo goles y superará a Müller que en su fantástico 1972 lo hizo en 40 oportunidades.

La Federación Internacional de Historia y Estadísticas del Fútbol (IFFHS) eligió a Lionel Messi como el “Mejor goleador del Mundo 2012″ gracias a sus 23 goles en partidos internacionales, por delante de los 21 de Neymar y 17 de Ibrahimovic, Falcao y Cristiano Ronaldo.

Pero el argentino pudo alcanzar hoy uno de los récords más antiguos, el de Vivian Woodward, que en 1909 festejó 25 veces para Tottenham y Chelsea, y mantiene así una marca de 103 años que hoy Messi logró igualar.

En La Liga Española

Además, Messi puede convertirse en el máximo goleador de la historia de la Liga española. “La Pulga” superó a César Rodríguez como anotador del Barcelona y ahora buscará quitarle la marca en el torneo español.

César tiene un total de 192 tantos, mientras que Messi tiene 184 y cinco partidos por disputar, con la particularidad que en el certamen español el argentino cada vez que marcó lo hizo por duplicado o triplicado.

Messi para el resto de la temporada

Más allá de los récords que pueda marcar este año, el rosarino tiene algunas cuentas pendientes que podrá saldar al término de la presente temporada en junio de 2013.

Si termina el curso como goleador ganará su tercer Botín de Oro, superando así a Thierry Henry, Mario JardelLa Pantera Eusebio, El Torpedo Müller y Cristiano Ronaldo, que lo consiguieron en dos oportunidades.

También podría desplazar al mítico Alfredo Di Stéfano como el mayor anotador en los Clásicos Barcelona-Real Madrid: la “Saeta Rubia” consiguió 18 en toda su carrera, mientras que “La Pulga” lleva 17.

A su vez, si llega a coronarse nuevamente como máximo anotador de la Champions League, el argentino será el primer jugador en lograrlo en cinco oportunidades en este torneo continental, sus números en Liga de Campeones son sencillamente espectaculares. Ya suma 56 goles en esta competición igualando al Gran “VanGol”, el holandés Ruud Van Nistelrooy.

Hasta ahora lo hizo en las temporadas 2008-09 (9), 2009-10 (8), 2010-11 (12) y 2011-12 (14). El goleador histórico de este certamen es Raúl González con 71, 14 más que los que contabiliza el rosarino en la actualidad.

El último reto será superar a Maradona en Argentina: Diego marcó 34 tantos en su campaña con la Selección, mientras que Messi lleva 31 y le quedan solamente Hernán Jorge Crespo con 35 tantos y Gabriel Omar Batistuta con 56 Goles, y a Messi le quedan unos cuantos años por delante.

David Beckham to Quit Galaxy

On Monday, the British Player David Beckham announced that the Cup game, in Carson against the Houston Dynamo, will be his last for the Los Angeles Galaxy, citing: “This is my last challenge in LA Galaxy”

“I don’t see this as the end of my relationship with the league as my ambition is to be part of the ownership structure in the future.”

“In my time here I have seen the popularity of the game grow every year. I’ve been fortunate to win trophies, but more important to me has been the fantastic reception I’ve had from fans in L.A. and across the States. Soccer’s potential has no limits in this wonderful country and I want to always be part of growing it.”

Beckham made his debut with the Galaxy from the Spanish Club The Real Madrid on July 21, 2007, in a friendly loss to Chelsea. His arrival made an immediate impact upon the finances of Los Angeles, and the league grew in stature during his time. Additionally, Beckham’s arrival opened a few doors to world class players in the last years of the MLS like The French Player Thierry Henry and the Mexican Rafael Marquez, former players of the FC Barcelona

David “Vandalism” Villa in Need for Speed

It’s so cool to see soccer players stepping out the archetype about the type of ads, soccer players can promote such as: Pepsi, Winning Eleven, Armani Exchange, Dolce & Gabbana, DKNY and many others. At least, when Beckham did the Sharpie’s campaign, I get the message “Ok, this is new, I’d never expected Beckham trying to send message that he learned how to write and read” but well he broke the archetype and now is the time for David Villa, FC Barcelona striker, to break his own stereotype and also to break the sh$% out of a police car in the new “Need for Speed” videogame trailer. With decisions related to the property destruction, this commercial was banned.

 



“The Clásico” a Soccer Game or a Battlefield

El Clasico is no doubt one of the world’s most anticipated sporting events, and it is back Sunday as Real Madrid travel to Camp Nou to face the might of FC Barcelona. The sides have already played each other on home and away soil this season in the Spanish Super Cup, but Real came away with the spoils in away goals. The pressure is on Madrid however, as the Spanish champs are desperate to close the gap on their rivals.

Messi’s Freekick against Real Madrid at Spain Supercup

FC Barcelona and Real Madrid face off on Sunday at Camp Nou when we have reached the seventh game of the season. The Whites trail the Catalans by 8 points, and a defeat in Barcelona would make it virtually impossible for them to attempt to win the league against Tito Vilanova’s men. Because of that, they probably will have more skin in the game, and will need to go after the victory from the kickoff.

Kobe Bryant Challenges Lionel Messi

The great player Kobe Bryant  from Los Angeles Lakers, said he would like to propose an exchange  to the Argentine striker Lionel Messi, who has great admiration. “I will propose that he comes to play with the Lakers one week while I go to play in Barça,” said NBA star.

Bryant is an advertisement with the company Turkish Airlines, a sponsor of FC Barcelona. The basketball player alongside Lio Messi will be the star of the spot, which for Kobe “is an honor.”
