We'll probably never grow tired of hearing those infamous press conferences delivered by football coaches like Jim Mora, Dennis Green and Mike Singletary, but don't spill any tears for our English pals. They have some colorful characters leading the teams over there, too. Liverpool has lost five of its last six league matches, and manager Kenny Dalglish wants fans to know his Reds won't be getting better 140 characters at a time. "Everything is instant now -- even coffee," Dalglish was just quoted as saying when asked of their struggles. "I don't think it will be done overnight, it won't be done on Twitter. It will be done with a lot of hard work and that is what we are trying to do." So the team won't be getting better on Twitter? No wonder so many people in the U.S. still don't understand soccer.
