"'It's not easy. I'm on the bench and I cannot help the team because I do not play. I have no confidence in Gerard Houllier,' the 37 year old midfielder told RMC. 'I do not understand and I think I will talk to him. For now, I continue to work. I'm not going to give up, I will still try hard. Although I am a little disappointed because I want to play and help my friends. It's frustrating.'"

Robert Pires, unlike everyone who's seen him this year, thinks he should be playing more and is VERY UPSET WITH GERARD HOULLIER ABOUT IT.

With my 9 AM Torts class canceled this morning, I found myself with two hours of unexpected free time. "Excellent," I thought to myself, "I can catch up on my outlining, perhaps even read ahead for later in the week." Instead, I used those two hours to watch multiple grainy feeds of Konyaspor v Fenerbahçe, skipping from window to window to watch the Süper Lig match. But why? I have plenty of studying that must happen if I want to pass my law school finals. Why spend two hours watching a match I didn't have to cover on a day when I was gifted the use of two free hours?
