Carlitos Steers United & Davis Cup Team Tops Netherlands

It’s great to hear good things about the Albiceleste, always. First the Davis Cup and followed by Carlos TEVEZ, the good news just kept coming.

You’ve got to have some high regards for him in terms of work ethics and attitude. Despite the many uncertainty that surrounds him about his future, all that means nothing to him when he is on the field.

TEVEZ was given the starting job against Fulham in the FA quarter-final, ahead of Dimitar BERBATOV. And just how did he respond?

By steering his team to the semi-final with two goals in the first half. His second goal was simply marvelous, picking the ball from the halfway line, cutting inside and finishing off with a fearsome strike in the 35th minute. And again, he was just unlucky to have his hat-trick. United went on to win the match 4-0.

Currently Barcelona looks to be back at their best as they are already 2-0 up with Lionel MESSI scoring from the spot against Athletic Bilbao.

Earlier in the Bundesliga, Martin DEMICHELIS capped off a terrific day for Bayern Munich with header one minute from time in their 5-1 win over Hannover.

Davis Cup - Ker/Arguello Takes Argentina To The Quarter-Finals

Argentina will play in the Davis Cup quarter-finals for the eight straight year after completing their win against the Netherlands. The double pair of Lucas Arnold KER and Martin Vassollo ARGUELLO cruised past with a 6-4, 7-5 & 6-3 win over the Dutch pair of Jesse Huta GALUNG/ Thiemo De BEKKER.

The victory will serve as a morale boost for our Davis Cup team after overcoming the absence of both David NALBANDIAN and Juan Martin DEL POTRO. But more importantly today’s results will also serve as an emotional triumph for KER, who is back after recovering from testicular cancer which forced the 34-year-old off the circuit in 2006.

"This is a gift for me and I was able to enjoy it to the full after coming through some tough times in the past few years," he said.
Well done to KER and the rest of the team. In the next round, Argentina will travel away to play the winner between the Czech Rep and France

Tevez was incredible today and I hope to see more of him as opposed to that bum Berbatov. Great stuff for the Argentine.

Yes, a timely performance from Carlitos today. Pretty clear that he did not celebrate his goals with much fervor, and so the where does Carlitos go from here soap continues. If I was Carlitos I would just move on. Ferguson obviously favors Berbatov over Carlitos, so head on to greener pastures. Tevez is too good and too young to be a part time player, regardless if it is with Manchester United. Get out Carlitos !

They did it. Let's hope Nalbandian is healthy for the next round.
