Like a billion times. The Lobos dealt with it pretty quickly but she basically tarnished her image forever.

The ponytail grab especially makes me cringe.

Really, it just goes to show a big double standard. Aside from the hair pulling, nobody would say anything about the stuff she was doing if it was men's soccer. And even the hair pull probably would have been laughed at if it were men's soccer.

the tackle at 32s itself is dirty as any dirty tackle men would do and be punished for.

the ponytail thing = Zidane.

the after whistle kick in the face is disgusting as well.

But what is really amazing is to see all of that in the same game, done by the same person. Screw you Dale Hunter, Elizabeth Lambert FTW !!!

Right, the tackle deserved a card, but without the pony tail pulling, nobody ever hears about that tackle. The ball to the face wasn't the same girl, I don't think. I think Lambert is the one who knocked the girl down, then a teammate kicked the ball into her face.

Because there were a ton of players obstructing the ref's view?

And it wasn't just the hand ball, there was a French player in an offside position who tried to make a play on the ball before Henry even had a chance the handball.

Ah, but in that instance, if he wasn't deemed as interfering, it wouldn't have been called.

Yeah, but I think he can ask his "linemen" about it. They're allowed to make the call, I think, if they saw it. Looks like nobody saw the incident. Strange...

Translation:

" Egypt in South Africa 2010"

Did you mean: " Algeria in South Africa 2010 "

IMO it's the final proof that they need to start using goalcams in football.

Spurs annihilate Wigan 9-1

Weird thing is that in my opinion, keeper Chris Kirkland was Wigan's best player. :wacko:

Amr Zaki courts controversy over Portsmouth rejection

By Soccernet staff

November 23, 2009

Amr Zaki has astonishingly claimed that he will not consider signing for Portsmouth on the grounds that they employ two Israelis - Tal Ben Haim and Avram Grant - as well as an Algerian in the form of Nadir Belhadj.

Amr Zaki in action for Egypt against Algeria

Zamalek striker Zaki, who impressed in the first half of the 2008-09 season with Wigan before attracting criticism for a series of disciplinary lapses, has long been a target for Portsmouth shareholder Sulaiman Al-Fahim.

Indeed, Al-Fahim confirmed only last week that he was hoping to convince manager Paul Hart and director of football Grant to sign Zaki, who he claimed "loves" the club and is desperate to move to Fratton Park.

But Zaki has courted controversy by claiming that the presence of Grant and defender Ben Haim means he would not consider joining Portsmouth. After the recent bad blood between Egypt and Algeria in World Cup qualifying, the presence of Belhadj is also an issue.

"I refused their offer before, but now joining Portsmouth is no longer an option for me," Zaki said on his official website.

"After Portsmouth signed an Israeli player and also hired an Israeli football director a possible move was ruled out. On top of that, no way could I play at Portsmouth with an Algerian within in their ranks."

Egypt was the first Arab nation to recognise Israel in 1969 but resentment still exists towards the Jewish state from many in the Muslim community.

I had Setanta. Worst investment I ever made. They only have a couple of Prem games live, and a lot of the rest of their programming is crap. $16/mth for that channel was brutal.

Thanks for the feedback :clap:

I will probably watch a few games during the free trial, but there is no way I'm paying for that.

Videotron currently offers free preview of the soccer channel Setanta, which broadcast live games from the Premier League and other top leagues. http://www.setanta.com/ca/TV-Listings/

Then it will cost you 15$ to get it

At 2.99$, TSN/TSN2/RSN HD is a much better deal
