El Superclásico: Boca Juniors vs River Plate

El Superclásico: Boca Juniors vs River Plate
Boca and River are Argentina's biggest football clubs and they have dominated the national championship for the last 70 years. More than half of the country's football fans support one of these clubs. Both clubs formed in a Buenos Aires area called the La Boca, but in 1938 River Plate earned their 'millionaires' nickname after moving to the affluent Nunez neighbourhood. The rivalry is more about class and money, with River Plate's support traditionally coming from the high-fliers in the Buenos Aires society. And the Boca supporters tend to come from the working classes and migrant communities.

Old Firm

Old Firm: While I considered the Barcelona-Real Madrid rivalry as the greatest in the world, many people will consider the Old Firm -- the rivalry between the Glasgow-based football teams Celtic F.C. and Rangers F.C. -- as number one. Liked the rivalry in Spain, the Old Firm is more than just a sport. Although both clubs did not associate themselves on religious ground officially, it is a fact that Celtics represented the Catholics and the Rangers the Protestants. The rivalry went beyond Scotland and spilled into United Kingdom and Ireland. It is infused with a series of complex disputes, sometimes centred on religion (Catholic and Protestant) and Northern Ireland politics (Loyalist and Republican).

Players who played for both clubs.
Mark Brown
Alfie Conn, Jr,
Mo Johnston ****
Kenny Miller
Steven Pressley

**** In 1989, he moved from Celtics to Rangers and became the first Catholic to sign for Rangers since the WWI. His signature caused anger for fans from both teams. The Celtic fans saw him as a traitor. The Rangers fans viewed the move as a betrayal of the club's traditions

Great Rivalry: Barcelona vs Real Madrid

El Clásico:This rivalry is considered to be the biggest rivalry in soccer. Their roots traced back to the regional conflict between Castile and Catalonia. From a historic point of view the rivalry projects what many regard as the political and cultural tensions felt between Catalans and the Castillians. During Franco's era in Spain, the Spanish government suppressed all regional identities. Barcelona FC became a cultural identity of Catalana. Althrough Real Madrid was never associated with Franco(in fact, several prominent Real Madrid club officials were killed during that era), many people saw them as the club of the capital city and therefore, the symbol of the Franco regime.

In the 1950s the rivalry was intensified further when the clubs disputed the signing of Alfredo Di Stéfano. Some marked this as the real beginning of this great rivalry since Real Madrid only won 2 La Liga titles in their entire history, prior to the arrival of Di Stefano and was not considered a powerhouse in Spain. Di Stefano led Real Madrid to the pinnacle of European football and put them in conflict with Barcelona who won 5 titles in the 9 seasons before Di Sefano's arrival.

The movement of players between the two clubs has always been painful for fans of both sides. Nevertheless, it is very frequent.

Winning a World Cup

I edited footages from the WC Final between 1950 and 2006. Then, I added two classic songs by the Queen. The collest part is probably Baggio missing the penalty in 1994 and I showed Buffon celebrating.

Inzaghi and Vieri: Were they gay????

"Lovers" in action?
A few years ago, Christian Vieri and Pippo Inzaghi formed a lethal "partnership" on the field. Off the field, they were also "best friends". One played for AC Milan.... the other Inter Milan. Good things did not last long. The pair is no longer friend. I wondered why???? Seomething happened between the two of them. Here is a tribute to two great players who "loved" each other.

Italy = 2006 World Cup

I am looking Italy from 1934 onward. I want to create a story for Italy. So this video is not about soccer action. Many viewers thought the music sucked. I am not into music!!!!

Manchester United: RVN and Rooney

A few years ago, Manchester United started to venture into the untapped US market. They toured the US every summer. They noticed that to break into the US market, they must market themselves to the kids. So they turned to cartoons. So they paired up Rooney with Van Nistlerooy the horseface.

Zidane and Roberto Carlos with hair: Priceless

My soccer video

I like to direct soccer video. I made contributes to the greatest national teams and Real Madrid in the world.

This one is for Brazil.

i did not really like the music. Santana is cool, but that Samba music is annoying. Too 1980ish for my liking.
