A love affair with life… and the occasional interest

Yoann Gourcuff

Thorgan Hazard

I haven’t been posting anything recently about Yoann Gourcuff, Ronaldo, or any players as of lately. Most in part because Yoann is having real bad season with Lyon lately and though I still have faith in him and his past season at Bordeaux I am not as obsessive as before. But… while following the French ligue, I stubled upon Eden Hazard, a player similar in form and skill. Still, it is not him that this post is about but it is his sexy young-boy-next-door brother that I have become infatuated with. Thorgan Hazard has the exact looks (dark blonde and green eyes), adorable face, and smile that I would want in a mate….

PS. Boys, wherever you are if you are reading this post and look like this call me! haha  =)

A boy can dream…

Thorgan Hazard



Happy Valentine’s Day!

 Je t’aime Yoann Gourcuff… ❤

Yoann Gourcuff, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Messi live tomorrow!

 

Tomorrow is an International Fifa date and there are multiple international soccer matches to tune into but I am only really interested in France vs Brazil, Portugal vs Argentina, and Germany vs Italy. First off, after the mess that was the French team in last summer’s World Cup, the new coach, Laurent Blanc has returned the blues to their winning ways. The darling of French football and my favorite player right now, Yoann Gourcuff, will have the opportunity to shine against Brazil. His form lately hasn’t been up to par with his 2009 exceptional season that saw him win the French Player of the Year award, Best goal of Ligue 1, and comparisons to the great Zinedine Zidane. Nevertheless, the kid has enormous talent and I wish him all the luck in the world for tomorrow’s match which should be more than exciting. It would more than make my day if he scores and proves all his criticts and the media wrong…

 

Cristiano Ronaldo will again get the chance to battle it out with his La Liga rival Messi in a match against their respective nations. Currently tied at 24 goals each they are currently the world’s best players. Real Madrid having lost miserably in their last battle is a reminder of what Ronaldo must be psyching himself up for. Personally I think both players have their strengths and weakenesses, I’m not gonna be one of those fanboys who picks one or the other and either complains that Messi isn’t a complete player, or that Ronaldo is arrogant… eghh you don’t even know how much bullshit people will comment with these two. Neways, Ronaldo and his supreme speed and technique are single-handedly keep Real Madrid alive and Messi is pretty much unstoppable especially when defenders resort to stabbing helplessly to take back possession. Should be an interesting match assuming they actually put out for their countries like they do for their clubs!

 Germany versus Italy should also be interesting in the fact that Germany was deadly this past World Cup and Italy not so much. I will definately be on the look out for what players like Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mezut Osil, Cassano, and others will bring out… Last time these two met was in Germany 2006  and Italy came out alive after 2 goals in extra time…


Yoann Gourcuff… victim of homophobia

Like many of you I followed the World Cup diligently and was ecstatic at seeing Yoann Gourcuff lead a french squad in the same position as Zinedine Zidane. The excitement gave way to disappointment as the French team failed to qualify and move on to the next round. The days that followed were full of speculation and rumors that the team had a falling out with the coach and having Gourcuff as the playmaker. There were accusations that Ribery had called Gourcuff a “fag” and that Yoann didn’t get along with the senior members of the team. Recent articles are confirming these accusations. Honestly, how ugly and messed up can things get? Hating on someone just cause hes different, white, attractive, and not a thug like Ribery, Evra, and Anelka is just plain wrong. There is no proof yet of whether Gourcuff is actually gay and either way it should definitely not matter; nevertheless, it is really tragic that in this day and age we still have to deal with such issues.

Gourcuff can pull any look…

 

Yoann Gourcuff

Yoann Gourcuff can pull any look off like no one else. I mean he has the most gorgeous eyes and lashes, a perfect facial structure, smile and hair. I am definitely not missing today’s game; Lyon vs PSG. He is talented enough as it is, but added to that he could be grazing the covers of magazines if he didn’t have a professional soccer contract…

 


Yoann Gourcuff moves to Lyon

Chamakh and Gourcuff embrace after a win

 French international Soccer player Yoann Gourcuff recently made a transfer from Bordeaux to Lyon with hope of competing in this year’s Champions League. Gourcuff and teammate Chamakh were a formidable force at Bordeaux and they reached the quarter finals in last year’s UEFA Champions League. This year Bordeaux failed to qualify for the tournament and its legendary coach Laurent Blanc left to pick up the pieces of the French National Team which fell into disarray at the World Cup. Marouane Chamakh, striker for Bordeaux, also left to play at Arsenal and added to Yoann’s decision to move to Lyon but still continue in the French League. Lyon has always been one of my favorite teams, especially during the time Juninho played, a time that saw incredible if not impossible free-kick goals against Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Bayern. Hopefully now with Gourcuff they can reach farther in the tournament. Nevertheless, I will always miss how Gourcuff and Chamakh synchronized plays and specially how adorably they celebrated their success at Bordeaux.  

Celebrating a Goal

   


July…

Well the World Cup is over and it was pretty much forgettable. Spain crawled their way through a plethora of 1-0 wins much like France in the last World Cup but without a classy player like Zinedine Zidane. I was left rooting for a scoreless Fernando Torres and found it bittersweet that a player as cheap and so prone to diving scored. Iniesta at least got the pass from Torres but for me Iker Casillas is the hero for saving two of Robben’s shots! The biggest let down for me was Gourcuff only playing 2 games and Brazil crashing out just like four years ago. Nevertheless there is hope, France has a new manager, Dunga is done for Brazil, and hopefully I get to see more of Gorgeous Gourcuff play and have a more pivotal role in the national team.

SPAIN!!! WC CHAMPS 2010 Fernando Torres

In other news I am officially tan to a ridiculous golden bronze! LOL not really but after spending 3 entire days at Myrtle Beach I came back looking many shades darker. Loving it! I haven’t been able to go back and play soccer with the cutie from a couple of weeks ago =( and now I have three of my best friends on vacation which sucks. I need a summer romance to develop soon and hopefully my birthday which is coming up like next week is eventful! =P


Insomnia…

So lately I have been having a hard time falling asleep for some reason. Yesterday night was the worst of them. I went to bed a 11 am and tossed and turned till i got up to pee. I checked my cell phone and it was 5 in the morning. I honestly don’t know what has been going on lately. I find myself falling asleep in the day mostly when I’m watching some World Cup game LOL. So this morning I feel so tired and sore everywhere I think I might be catching the flu or something ehhgh!

In other news I wanted France to beat Mexico yesterday only because I am obsessed with Yoann Gourcuff, but the coach had him on the bench the whole time!! They ended up losing by two. So it seems my hopes of seeing him further in the tournament are all but lost. =( Now ill be rooting for Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, Holland’s Ibrahim Affelay,  Spain’s Torres and if all else fails Brazil…


World Cup’s Sexiest Players!

 

5 days left to the greatest/largest tournament in the world! The World Cup is coming up and I figured I would put up some cute sexy players to watch out for..  ; )     

First: Fernando Torres    

A striker and number 9 for Spain and for Liverpool, I first remember seeing him 4 years ago in the last world cup! He was gorgeous back then with his european mullet… With 3 goals in the last world cup he is bound to net a couple more. Look out for him…    

    

Next up: Ibrahim Afellay     

He is a midfielder for Holland/The Netherlands, and plays for PSV. He has the most gorgeous face and eyes see for yourselves:    

    

    

And now my favorite!    

Yoann Gourcuff    

I used to like A.C. Milan back when Kaka and Ronaldo were playing there and I remember seeing him playing there and immediately falling in love! This midfielder plays now for Bordeaux and won French Player of the Year in 2009. He plays internationally from France and I will definitely tune in to watch more of his games…
