First Eleven – Hopes and Wishes For 2011

New Leadership for FIFA.

I need more from the governing body of the beautiful game. Not just a money grabbing organization determined to kill players in 110-degree heat at the sake of “expanding” the game into new markets. FIFA needs to get back to making swift, precise decisions based on the integrity of the game, not just making more money.

Less matches throughout the year.

This would make them more significant and give players a true recuperation period during the summer months. This will insure healthier players actually wanting to play for their national sides again and managers will be more relaxed to release them so they can play for their countries.

Players, please stop diving and complaining after every play.

Please spare us the six-minute histrionics worthy of some Shakespearian play for somebody stepping on your shoelaces or messing up your hair scrunches when going for a header in the 6-yard box.

Man up, play and stop complaining on every little whisper you hear you that makes you float ala a Ronaldo pirouette unto the ground like some petulant child.

A championship for Wenger.

Wenger deserves it for what he his teams have brought to the EPL in regards to style and grace on the football pitch. Thank you for changing everything!

Your teams show us what a nice, fluid, ball control game is all about. The constant long ball has seemed to fade more and more over the last 10 making it less British and more appealing to watch.

A haircut for Ronaldinho.

I also want him to run for more then one or two plays during a game.  I also think he should give up his contract wages to feed the hungry. When was the last time he played hard for 90 minutes?

People admitting for one once and for all how over rated Sven Goran Eriksson is.

And please do not offer him another job after his current one. His disciples(see Robert Mancini, Sinisa Mihajilovic) as well are over rated. They are assistant managers at best. I could have coached that Lazio team to success that built Sven’s myth about what a great coach he is. It needs to end.

A permanent move for Landon Donovan to the EPL.

The guy is simply too talented to be wasted for a short season on a semi-professional team like the LA Galaxy.

Players donating their wages for one week

Imagine the impact if players from all the top clubs in Europe did this to help the fight against illiteracy, HIV, hunger and other significant causes. Players have the ability to touch so many people. Rather then do a photo op, help those in need.

ESPN3.com to edit the games on replay.

Please, just splice the two half’s together. Since you are not selling ads during that 15-minute intermission, do I really need to see the same girls in the stands, guys waving flags or the benchwarmers running and stretching for 15 minutes? Just play the half’s back to back and save me the aggravation of watching this nonsense.

Rafa Benitez to have his own reality show.

As a follow up to the implosion at Inter. I want it unfiltered and live!

A defense for Tottenham.

If they get one, they might actually pull off the coup and upend the EPL.

    Interesting, I guess Man City in 2nd has nothing to do with Mancini’s man management style. And the fact that Sven has been the most successful England manager in the past 20 years and won Serie A and led man City to a top 10 finish in his first year and a UEFA Cup spot through fair play is of no significance. Do you follow Serie A at all, Fiorentina has been depleted with injuries and as soon as Jovetic returns and Mutu gains full fitness I guarantee a strong finish to the end of the season.
