Allow me to doubt that, unless you shot less than 10 penalties in 13 years.

No, it's actually true. Never missed a penalty kick. I've only taken 3 of them, but I never missed... :)

The Norwegian league kicks off today. Two of the favourites, Stabæk and Lillestrøm, have just started at the home team's new stadium.

Yay! After Redknapp replaced Zokora with Corluka they were a solid team.

King is back too :oex: Along with Woody he makes up one of the best centre-back lines in the Premiership.

Put some bets on some special matches.... the first six were by mistake (the computer had a hiccup on me) but I thought the combination was so funny that I let it stand. :)

H=Home, D=Draw, A=Away

Coventry - Doncaster, D
Crewe - Leeds, A
NEC NIJ - Willem, D
Oldham - Tranmere, D
CS Rulmentul Urban Brasov - Byåsen, A
NEC NIJ - Willem, H

Ahkay, now for the proper bets...

Hoffenheim - Hannover (0-1 handicap), H
Blackburn - West Ham, H
Tottenham - Chelsea, H
Start - Lyn, D
Lillestrøm - Viking, A
Brann - Stabæk, D

Yep. Did you see why Rooney got a second yellow? Was it deserved?

Of course it was. Losing it like that, throwing the ball furiously to display his discontent? It's not the first time Rooney has been given a second yellow for such a thing.

Darren Bent got called up for the WC qualifier on Wednesday. Pavyluchenko scored a goal in Russia's win. Van Persie scored a goal in Holland's win.

I saw part of Spain vs. Turkey, a very exciting match. Early on especially, the Turks seemed likely to score.

Spurs really have a lot of talents coming up. O'Hara and Huddlestone really played well against Norway's U-21 team (Hudd scored a screamer from 25 yards :) ), and Lennon has solidified himself as the future right-winger for England ahead of Bentley, Milner and Young. Defoe and Jenas are also definitely in contention for international places, and now Bent is in the discussion as well... :-D

Brazil got even with Equador on Sunday (man, that game sucked like hell) and, yesterday, Brazil beat Peru by 3x0 (was a bit better, given that Kaka played most of the time instead of that ugly-raiser Ronaldo Gaúcho).

Norway had a really good one, for once. We struggled against Finland, and just as it seemed the match was ending 1-1, we scored in overtime.

Then, it seemed that once again we would lose the victory, as the Finns scored 2-2 immediately thereafter. Everybody was thinking "oh, great, yet another wasted win", as Gamst'n suddenly hammered home 3-2 almost 3 minutes into overtime. :D

Three goals in as many minutes. Great finish.

Ugly perhaps but a good player.

Exciting stuff Kalah.
