mmm quite simply...yes they should!!! the name says it all "CHAMPIONS LEAGUE"!!!!
arsenal should buy michael owen and sean-wright philips...they would both fit perfectly into arsenal's system..
owen requires the ball to be played along the ground, not really one to be wanting masses of crosses into the box..
Henin scrapes thro again, just beating Kuznetsova:
7-6 4-6 7-5
Really looked like she was going out... was 5-3 down in the third, but Kuznetsova threw it away!
Given that the sporting event in question is Australian the sporting public in Papa New Guniea are somewhat fanatical about Rugby League - Even madder then Geordies about football!
Fiercest origin passions erupt in PNG
May 25, 2004
Sex scandals and other misbehaviour by Australian rugby league players barely rate a mention in Papua New Guinea where the nation is gearing up for its annual dose of sports mayhem.
The atmosphere in PNG when State of Origin comes around each year rivals any football fanaticism around the world.
When Queensland and NSW go head to head tomorrow night for the State of Origin, PNG will erupt in a passionate show of support for a game that has become something of a national obsession.
PNG's enthusiasm for rugby league, and especially the State of Origin, goes beyond the mere flag waving and tooting of horns.
Last year, television sets were hurled into the sea, fights broke out in the streets of the capital Port Moresby and there were reports of suicide and murder.
"I've heard of people taking hatchets to their own heads after a disappointing result in the State of Origin," a local journalist said.
But Port Moresby resident Alwyn Philemon said the State of Origin in PNG was primarily a chance for people to get together and party.
"Normally everyone in my village comes together to watch the game. We put a TV outside on the street near the trade stores so that everyone can come to get drunk and support their team," Philemon said.
"Sometimes, usually if the Maroons lose, they will fight each other and people can get hurt.
"Sometimes there are fights between husbands and wives because the husband might go for the Maroons and the wife goes for the Blues and they start punching each other but usually it's a lot of fun."
In Port Moresby's Koki village, which sits on stilts above Moresby Harbour, television sets are placed strategically throughout the village to avoid confrontation with rival supporters.
Last year, several televisions were reportedly thrown from the village into the sea as disheartened Maroons supporters vented their frustration at a Blues victory.
Chairman of the PNG Rugby Football League Jim Robbins said Origin I was going to be "an absolute monster".
"You get households split as the passion for the game over-rides blood bonds," Robbins said.
"Rugby is a real passion here in PNG. It's not only the game of the nation but it has also, whether its true or not, been seen as a replacement for tribal warfare.
"The NRL is always on the box and always takes precedent over local sports. A game like soccer just doesn't have the same appeal for Papua New Guineans - it's frustrating for these people to watch a small round ball being kicked around for 80 minutes when often no-one will score anything."
For Alwyn Philemon, a victory for Queensland will provide good reason for celebration.
"Most people in my village support the Blues but I go for the Maroons because I support the Brisbane Broncos. The Maroons have good players like Darren Lockyer," he said.
"We usually bet six-packs of beer but this year I'll be betting a 12-pack on the Maroons."
