Its almost 2012 and what a sporting year it has been! Here is the best and most in depth sports review you will read for 2011….. Enjoy!

Football/soccer – Spain won everything and the best player in the world is an Argentine – go figure! Bafana Bafana (SA national football team) – well at least we know they can dance!
Rugby – it was the ref’s fault!
Tennis – Nadal, Federer and Djokovic play rock, paper, scissors to decide who’s winning each tournament!
NBA – what NBA? … Okay, the Mavs did finally win!
Golf – without that red golf T-shirt on a sunday…….
F1 – please let me know if it still exists!
Synchronized swimming – sorry, my bad forgot this is a SPORTS review for a second!
Cricket – finally the Aussies don’t look invincible anymore!! I don’t like the state of Test cricket at the moment (too much T20 for my liking!)

So there you have it – it doesn’t get as in depth, analytical and call it like u see it as that!!

If I didn’t mention your favorite sport, hey I’m sure ESPN will have something to say about it!

ThatmanRuss and the team thanks you for reading and following eheheheh this year and look out for many more sport related articles in the new year!

I know what you’re thinking…………………………….. how is that possible? Well, it is! No disrespect to my American friends out there 🙂 hehehe. I am am of course talking about the Womens Football world cup 2011! Keeping in mind that the Brazilian womens team are just as gifted with the talent and technique of their male counterparts. However when it comes to womens football, the USA womens team certainly now how to get the job done and go all the way to lift the trophy! 

Yesterday produced a match filled with the drama and suspense that every match should have at this stage in the tournament – late goals, play-acting and the ever-dreaded penalty shootout! The Americans never say die attitude earned them a well deserved place in the semi-finals and with what they have proved in the past – they could very well win it again this year!

Christiano Ronaldo Stat!

Christiano Ronaldo has scored 70 goals in 77 games in the famous White shirt of Real Madrid!
That sort of return is super amazing.
But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High.
Only the likes of Messi come close.
Many might not like Ronaldo but they can’t argue that he is one of the best out there right now!

Ronaldo vs Messi

Portugal played Argentina last night or should I say Christiano Ronaldo played against Lionel Messi last night.
Its the clash that everybody talks about and wants to see at the moment! 2-1 to Argentina on the night.
The debate is which of the two Spanish based players is the best in the world right now.
I think they are both extremely gifted and talented but if I had to give my choice of who is the best……… I would have to say that the little Messi is a head above the taller Christiano.
As shown in the last Barcelona vs Real Madrid derby the Argentinian knows how to turn it on and step up to the big occasion!
Of course this is just my opinion (but I’m very rarely wrong!)
