"He's done it again, the little fellow!"

We've been following TEVEZ and his adventures at Upton Park and we've been getting more and more frustrated during most of the season. But every Premier League follower in the World now knows about CARLITOS class, determination and perserverance. HE SIMPLY WON'T GIVE UP! And he will add to that never-say-die attitude some of football's greatest skills.

Everything looked very hard for West Ham today. They had to travel to Manchester to face United at Old Trafford. It was CARLITOS first ever appearence at the Theatre of Dreams and Alex FERGUSON decided to go for it and try and end the championship season in style.

He rested Cristiano RONALDO, Ryan GIGGS and Paul SCHOLES in the first half, but they all jumped onto the field during the second.

But they didn't expect what came in the 44th minute. A clever combination between Bobby ZAMORA and Carlos TEVEZ saw the little argie get into the box and, after challenging Wes BROWN, he won the ball and with a sweet touch he sent it between Edwin VAN DER SAR's legs to secure West Ham's premiership status.

He has become an Upton Park legend and the fact of seeing an Albiceleste shirt with the number 11 and the name TEVEZ in the back, flying high amongst West Ham supporters really made my day. As it is not everyday that you see an Englishman honouring our colours.

But you couldn't be surprised. After all, TEVEZ honoured the claret and blue like no other West Ham player did this season.

So...wherever you go next season, I thank you for your performance and I salute you on becoming the main star in an incredible escape act.

Other notable Argentines:

Hernán CRESPO: He scored a hat-trick to help champions Inter to comeback to beat Lazio 4-3.

Gabriel HEINZE: It was quite impressive to see the West Ham players saluting Manchester United and seeing the Red Devils jump to the field led by non other than Gabriel HEINZE as he was captain for them. They lost, but he got to lift a very important trophy at the end of the day. We'll see if he can make it two next Sunday against Chelsea for the FA Cup final.

Manu GINOBILI: Had a great game last night in San Antonio's win over Phoenix to put the Western Conference semifinals 2-1 for the Spurs.
He was poked in the eye by Shawn MARION and despite his left eye started to close, he kept on playing and he finished with 24 points, 4 assists, 2 rebounds, 3 steals and 1 block. Fabricio OBERTO contributed with 2 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists.

Yes it was truly a magnificent Sunday. How much more could I ask for? West Ham players giving the royal salute to Manchester United with GABY leading the team. And the only goal of the game coming from another Albicelestes to help West Ham survive in the Premiership. To top it all off, the Upton Park faithful waving the no.11 blue & white jersey.

The commentator for the Wigan vs. Sheff Utd, announced that West Ham has taken the lead at Old Trafford had this say: -

“West Ham has taken the lead and it was scored by Carlos TEVEZ, who else can it be”

NBA News….

What about the other CARLITOS, well not a great for him as he was only 5 minutes time play and posted 2 points, as the Detroit PISTONS lost to the Chicago BULLS 87-102. A quite night for CHAPU too as he only posted 9 points & 2 rebounds.

With this victory the BULLS have manage to pull one back in their series after losing the first three games.

Seba, I know that you are rooting for the BULLS but just for your information (and to everyone as well), NO franchises have ever managed to overturn a 3-0 deficit to go on and win their series. Could this be history in the making?

Well after all the things that has taken place last weekend, one should realized never to under estimate the BLUE & WHITE courage


John said...

Based on what I’ve just read from local newspaper, CARLITOS has rejected an offer from Chelsea. Phew!!! Thank God for that.

Now it seems Real Madrid and Seville are chasing after him.

ive also herd my club tottenham want carlitos and heinze and i also hear liverpool are after his carlitos would be great at "the lane" carlito come and be a legend like ossie ardiles who was and is still know as one.
as for the basket ball comon you spurs....(san antonio)

Carlitos has scored against both Man Utd and Chelsea now. Great for him. I hope he gets to play for a top European side now. Maybe he should join Saviola, Gago and Higuain at Real.

johnny said...

Too bad Barca does not appear to be in the running for Carlitos. They could sure use him. No to Chelsea-great! How about a NO to Seville also. There's a bunch of jerks on that team !

Seba said...

In trying to read the future for Carlitos, there is an important aspect to consider. And that's the fact that he decided to quit his English lessons.

I will surely give that little bit of information the importance it really has. As it shows that he may be on his way out of England.

Sevilla, AC Milan, Juve...

I hope it is Napoli (if they get promoted!) hahaha! That would be great!

At AC Milan he would play alongside RONALDO. What about that? GILARDINO and INZAGHI have nothing to do if CARLITOS joins the Rossoneri. I think TEVEZ is a far superior player.

Sevilla? If they are to play Champions League, they could be a good place to land. Napoli, we are talking of another team in which MARADONA played. But I don't think that's relevant. Just a curious note.

I say why not? I hope he doesn't go there as I don't like them. I don't like Milan either, so if it is one out of those pick is Sevilla.

Real Madrid? Hmmmm...I don't think Carlitos is the type of player for a team like that. Carlitos is a working class hero, Real Madrid does not necessarely represent the working is more related to higher classes (even though they have supporters of the most diversified backgrounds).

Stay at West Ham Carlitos!!!! They'll welcome back Dean ASHTON and they could bring in some new players with a 45 million-pounds transfer budget. don't need to adapt anymore and you are already a cult hero at Upton Park.

Keep scoring against ManUtd and Chelsea! That's what I want to see!

I think Tevez should consider the following clubs only :-

1) stay at West Ham (extremely important for fans to truly love you. you will feel you want to do more and that will make you a much better player, especially when time is still on Tevez's side).

2) Liverpool - Good argie presence and play sensible football. A player like Tevez will fit in easily.

3) Real Madrid - Good argie presence

4) Atletico Madrid - Good argie presence

5) Inter Milan - Good Argie presence

If you look back in the past, when Argie presence is strong, the club normally win something, example Lazio (Veron, Crespo, Kily all at the same time), Inter currently.

I hope Tevez will end up with a good choice.

Will Carlitos play in the Copa America?

I agree with Seba that Carlitos giving up English lessons means he is probably leaving the Premier League. The Primera Liga and the Serie A are therefore the most likely options.

My hearts says Napoli but my brain said Real, Sevilla, Zaragoza, Inter or AC Milan.
