a big club should really buy diego now before he gets more expensive. hes still really young and will be good for years to come.

I got this from goal.com on Milans situation....

Apparently he has been promised by Galliani that at least one of Shevchenko, Ronaldinho and Eto'o will come to Milan in the summer.
In addition, he will be handed finds to bring in the likes of Emreson (Real Madrid) and Alex (PSV) - two players he has tagged as top priority.

Gonna be Sheva. Cant see Eto'o leave Barca. Ronaldinho maybe.

Heinze isnt a Madrid player yet. More teams wants his signature.

Diego will stay one more year at Werder Bremen before he leaves them for a team in Spain or Italy.

Glad that Mexes signed a new contract :), will keep him a Roma player till 2011.

Alex is Chelsea's property... they wouldn't sell one of the best defensers to the winner of the CL, while they want to win it, would they ? anyway, nothing would surprise me anymore, Chelsea is a weird club with too much money in Roman's wallet (coz in the bank, there is none).

Alex needs a work permit to play for Chelsea. The question is would he get one... If not Milan will make a bid.

I'm sad that Gabby is probably leaving, he's a good defender with plenty of bite. I'm just glad we got Evra and Vidic who play that role (LB&CB) remarkably well.
I've heard that Real Madrid are interested in linking Diego and Robinho up again. If they do buy him it'll be a remarkable bit of business for Bremen, they paid something like €8m for him, and there's talk of Real paying up to €30m for him. Thought I'm not sure where he'd fit in seeing as they've got to accomodate Higuain, Gago & Diarra and Robinho as it is. Beckham leaving will open up a midfield slot but a player of Diego's level needs to play 40+ games in a season to compete with Kaka and the like for an already congested position for the Brazil national side.

Fiorentina have also come out today saying Luca Toni will be leaving this summer, as to where I'm not sure.

Bayern confirm £7.5m Toni deal

Wed 30 May, 02:30 PM




Bayern Munich have confirmed they have agreed a deal to sign Italy international striker Luca Toni from Fiorentina.In a statement released by the club on Wednesday afternoon, Bayern revealed they would pay a fee of 11 million euros (£7.5 million).
"Munich can announce a new addition for the new season," the statement read. "Italian world champion striker Luca Toni will join from Fiorentina, effective from July 1, 2007, for a fee of 11 million euros.
"He will come to Munich next week to undergo a medical and he is to sign a four-year contract until June 30, 2011."
The deal was expected after Fiorentina president Diego Della Valle on Monday confirmed the club would respect Toni's wish to leave the Viola.
The 30-year-old striker had a contract with Fiorentina until 2009. He joined the club from Palermo in 2005 and became an instant hit, scoring 31 goals in his first season to help the club finish in the top four.
Toni's form earned him a place on the Italy team that won the World Cup in Germany last year. This season, Toni finished as the Viola's joint top-scorer alongside Adrian Mutu with 16 goals, as Fiorentina recovered from a 15-point deduction for match-fixing to qualify for the UEFA Cup

This just in, according to Man Utd's website, we've effectively signed Nani (Sporting CP) and Anderson (porto)

United have agreed terms in principle to sign FC Porto's exciting Brazilian starlet Anderson.

The 19-year-old is an attacking midfielder, although he can also play out wide or up front.

An official United statement confirmed: "Manchester United is delighted to announce it has agreed terms in principle with FC Porto for the purchase of the registration of Anderson.

"Personal terms have been agreed and a formal announcement will take place once the necessary administrative procedures, including a medical have been complete


Manchester United is delighted to announce it has agreed terms in principle with Sporting Lisbon for the purchase of the registration of Nani.
Personal terms have been agreed and a formal announcement will take place once the necessary administrative procedures, including a medical have been completed.

Nani looks a little lightweight but he has potential. Anderson really impresses me though, it should hopefully make up for us losing out on Ronaldinho, I just hope he doesn't end up like Kleberson hm.

I can see Richardson, Heinze, Saha and Brown leaving. We needed a left winger and attacking midfielder to gradally be brought in so they can acclimatise themselves to Giggs' and Scholes' roles. Neither can replace them, as they're both immense but if we're patient like we were with Ronaldo then I'm sure it'll work out. We need a new striker now, Huntelaar would be a realistic option as we only need a poacher, the new blood have the pace.

Chelsea will get Quaresma, and maybe Lucho Gonzalez if they lose Lampard. But I can't se Porto allowing Chelsea to rob oo many of their players. I heard an interesting rumour that Boulahrouz is being sold already, to Bayern Munich for €5m, half what was paid for him last summer. Maybe a first option on Schweinsteiger as part of it? Alex joining is common knowledge, of course.

First option doesn't necesarily mean they'll buy him right away, it could be in a year or 2. I was just speculating on that, you can't expect to get a top drawer defender for half his worth and for Chelsea to not want anything in return.

im glad beckham assisted, would have been nice if he scored that free kick. i was never a big fan of his, other than his imense ability to hit frees and deliever balls in the run of play, but he took way too much shit for the "downfall" of england and real madrid. im glad he is showing both of them they can suck a dick.

i think he will shred mls with hes frees and service too. easily have 15 assists in half a season and 10ish free kick goals.



side note, marsalas salas (sp) the chilean is looking at a move to chicago fire or dc united. mls is not as bad as many people think. a lot of athletisism in there. they just need players with more skills. the likes of beckham, anghel, salas, ect. type players should elevate the game. if it really takes off american sports leagues pay the best, if mls gets that kind of money who knows what kind of players they can bring in.

Exactly, though he's often used as a utility defender, hence why Chelsea got him in the vain hope of replacing Gallas. I thik Bayern would benefit greatly from having a player of Boulahrouz's quality in their side. He's much better than Van Buyten and Ismael anyway. And for €5m I'd call it a bargain.
Pizarro going to Chelsea was a shrewd bit of business, he's a class striker. They not got 2 players in their squad who've fractured their skulls, maybe they'll start a padded helmet trend? hah

Dunga is the kind of coach who wants to renew the team, and old players have to win their place on the field.

frankly, Emerson hasn't been at the top of his shape this season, even though he's finishing the season quite well, just like the other players of Real. but it's not the Emerson of 2002 anymore.

i ain't interested in getting in that "which team is bigger" debate...

all i'm saying is, for my tastes, Serie A is very very very boring... 2 years ago, i used to watch a lot of European, South American and Asian leagues for professional purposes, and the Serie A is boring.
i remember watching a Udinese-Chievo game, my god, it was awful... and that was only one example among others.
i agree it may be competitive, due to a few (4 or 5) teams, but when it comes to entertainment, there's not. the only fun italian teams have is on the European scene.

for some reason, i found the late CL's pretty boring too, except a few games, and enjoyed the C3 better, maybe because there were a lot of Portuguese and Spanish teams in the last rounds, which played entertaining football.

so, for Henry, he may try the Liga, he could score a lot there, and run a lot, he's built for that.

Denmark - Sweden was called off before time because a drunk invaded the pitch and hit the referee. Before that, Sweden had been in fron 3-0 after 25 minutes, but Denmark equalised 10 minutes before time. Sevilla midfielder Christian Poulsen hit Markus Rosenberg in the stomach, red card and penalty to Sweden in extra time. And then some drunk fuck attacked the ref.

All goals, red card+attack on ref.

the game was to say goodbye to Tugay who i think is one of our best ever players the guys a model professional and deserved. the guy was very important for our national team i mean we gave a brazilian guy turkish nationality just to fill in the anchorman gap in front of the defense after tugay left. now im just waiting for mr hakan sukur to quit the guys starting to embarass himself and slowdown the progress of the national team.

Chivu to Inter, apparently. Unlucky for Roma really, he's a class centre half.
As for Makaay, it may sou da bit strange to begin with, but there's bee na lot of talk the past couple of months that he could be on his way to Celtic. Wouldn't be a bad move for him, 20 goals a season, champions league and linking up with Vennegoor of Hesslink, why not eh?

it'll only be if Bayern wants to earn money selling pictures to the press, coz he's real ugly.

but i don't see why Ribéry would be a wrong move, for 25 millions, while it's the average price for any wonderkid nowadays.

Roman Deini
06-06-2007, 01:07 PM
Maybe a bit too much imo the price they pay for Ribery. He will do good at Bayern. Now Klose maybe also on his way and they got a killer attack.

Makaay to Holland? There was only an enquiry made by Feyenoord but they can't buy him cause of no transfer money. In dutch press was also said that Lyon was taking a look.

Chivu is technically still not sold to Inter. He is put up for auction. I know Barcelona is also keen on him but hey owning Pizarro fully and between 10-12million will convince Roma to sell him to Inter. His replacement is already known, Juan from Leverkusen all tho they still looking at Mertesacker or Naldo both from Werder Bremen. Hopefully, with Chivu going away, this still means that Mexes will sign the contract he agreed too.

he wants to play regularly for england again, la galaxy don't wanna be releasing because of distance the money/attraction ... i don't think beckham was counting on being called up by mclaren because say england do want to keep em la galaxy is going to have to loan him out henrik larsson style at the end of the MLS which is what, november? half way through the european season, and if he is selected for euro 2008 are the galaxy going to release him for that? if he was so determined to get back to playing for england then he would of taken an offer in the premier and weighed up all those options, he took the money -like we all would- but is now realising playing for your country money can't buy ... he'll still go, just a newspaper article i read

Premiership - Thierry Henry has moved a step closer to leaving Arsenal after describing news of Milan's interest in him as "great to hear".

It will increase fears among Gunners fans that the club is on the brink of disintegrating, with manager Arsene Wenger and midfielder Cesc Fabregas also believed to be considering their futures.
The Frenchman's season has been disrupted by injury, and he has often cut a disconsolate figure with the Gunners finishing just fourth in the Premiership. He was also upset by the resignation of vice-chairman David Dein.
On Milan's reported interest, he said: "That is great to hear. How can it be anything else?"

altintop would probably start off the bench for the first few games, with ribery being the big named signing and others being more accomplished starters, buth hitzfeld has this rotation policy so he will be a regular ... as a right back? nah, willy sagnol is the man, and there's even talk of shifting sagnol further up field to accomodate jansen on the left and lahm on the right, but who knows, hitzfeld is full of surprises

you are right, rensing is very promising and i got no doubt once he becomes a regular he will knock hildebrand out of the german #1 -since by then lehmann will be gone- and yeh rummenigge told kahn to knuckle down, but he was right, kahn does have that arrogance about him -which is why he is so good- but no one is bigger than the team, but i can't see it developing further into a full out squabble - though he is a sulker so i'm not convinced either way ... as for lucio, i haven't herd too much other than the usual rumours clubd would like to sign him, they dismissed boulharouz so i doubt they will let him go - i hope they dont

haha cheers, my veteran status has been rewarded hehe ...

the bench, thats where it's thin which is why we need another midfielder, if my starting line up is right, the bench will follow:

rensing; jansen, ismael; demichellis, ottl, altintop; podolski

so we pretty thin as most other players are basically coming through the youth system

as for ribery, i think he has a narrow view of the bundesliga, iget the feeling he thinks the bundesliga will be a walk over ... he said his reasoning was when a big club like bayern come calling, you dont turn it down, and he said he was better chance of winning in europe than with marseille and that bayern should win the bundesliga

Eto'o is staying, as is Henry. The latter is linked with a move away every summer, so I'll believe it when I see it. Apparently when Stan Kroenke buys the club the first thing he'll do is bring Dein back as chief executive, which will help in securing Wenger long term, and those 2 guys are the key to Henry staying.
Barcelona will go for Diego Forlan instead, as that'll help balance the books with Yaya Toure seemingly coming in. Edmilson is apparently leaving, and I've always had the feeling that Marquez will join Milan, no idea why. With Giuly leaving, they may consider bringing in someone else although I expect more will be seen of Dos Santos next season.

USA is dominating in this years gold cup, i think its coz they got all their star players
mexico seems to be struggling since they dont have all their players and canada is doin ok

found this interesting....

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) - Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant made a surprise visit to watch FC Barcelona in training Thursday before the team's final game this weekend.

Bryant, who lived in Europe for eight years and is an avid soccer fan, watched quietly from the sidelines and hugged Barcelona striker Ronaldinho after the training session.

"I came to enjoy my favorite football team," Bryant said after security guards let him into the Nou Camp stadium. "It is a privilege to be able to watch Barca train."
The vacationing Bryant said coach Frank Rijkaard was his favorite player, a midfielder with a lot of "class."


and the US and mexico are in the copa america, just checked. US is in argies group and play them first, june 28th, probably doing the gold cup to get a warm up in...they are gonna need it.

Inter claim Suazo had literally signed with them. I dunno who to believe, either way a side will gain a good striker.
I'd rather he signed for Inter, as that would open the possibility of either Adriano or Ibrahimovic being available. As much as I've been impressed with what I've seen of Quagliarella, I'd rather see £10m+ go in the direction of either of the Inter lads, namely Adriano.

A lot of Evertonians have been talking about an attempt to sign Riquelme on loan, though I highly doubt this happening seeing as he said he didn't wanna join Man Utd last summer as it'd mean moving his family to England when they're settledi n Spain. I'm glad he didn't join, he's not the kind of player that covers a great deal of ground. He'd be best off returning to Villarreal and sorting his attitude out, they'll have a sweet team next season.

the financial results for Real just dropped today. it's positive for 40 million euros before taxes, and the expected budget for next year is up to 400 million euros. (they'll have Bwin as a shirt sponsor by the way... just like AC Milan).

Perez got the balance right, by selling the old training centre for more than 1 billion euros, and i agree it was a very generous price but hey, which football club isn't financially overrated ?

obviously, standards of financial health are not the same in football and in other business areas.

and i mentionned these coaches because they're not leaving for better offers. they just left without any offer ! anyway, you can't have a better offer than Capello's. he's paid 4 or 5 million euros a year, has a 16 million sacking-clause...

Schuster wouldn't be bad actually. he knows Madrid, knows Spain, thinks more about attacking than Capello does... but Capello is just like the Trap a few years back : a fucking winning machine.

so, i don't know... he could stay, he could leave. he may have troubles with Calderon and Mijatovic.... i think Capello would like to be a full manager in charge of the recruitment, but Mijatovic got that role. he's considering too many players though...

Real Madrid are Real Madrid, only a club like that would sack their coach after winning a domestic title in their first season. At least Calderon has taken the hint with Ronaldo, and is sticking to attempting to unsettle Kaka and Robben. I don't like how these club presidents unsettle players by saying they'll buy them in their manifesto for election, UEFA should do more to stop that crap.
I think they'd be right to keep Capello in charge though, ther earen't many managers out there who're better and are willing to take that job. I think if he satayed he'd want to sell Raul, which may cost him his job either way.

the turkish league money wise is the 6th largest in europe. Fenerbahce is one of the richest clubs in europe. the team with financial troubles is galatasaray, and they just signed lincoln. i have no idea where they are getting the money from, i mean they have over 200million debt. theres big money in turkish football due to tv revenue. with each of the big 3 having 15million fans each and the fact that every game is a sellout. they will make money. but galatasaray have had trouble with building a new stadium its taken them 6 years to get the planning right. this has put them into massive debt. fenerbahce and besiktas have handled the money well though and are moving up towards the wealth of the big european teams. all they need now is success on the pitch.

MADRID, Spain (AP) - FC Barcelona plans to retain coach Frank Rijkaard next season, trusting the Dutchman to deal with squabbles involving star players Ronaldinho and Samuel Eto'o.
President Joan Laporta said Tuesday all three will be with the team next season and that the club will increase medical checks and monitoring of training routines after claims that Ronaldinho was overweight.
Barcelona was without a trophy after a season in which it was hit by stories that Ronaldinho was fat and Eto'o had criticized his teammates and Rijkaard.
Laporta said Barcelona would deal firmly with any future indiscipline or squabbling and would link medical services more closely with players' training routines.
"The club will not tolerate behaviour that falls below essential professional standards," Laporta said ahead of a directors' meeting.

The Barcelona president said he was looking to sign as many as six new players and that some would follow the out-of-contract Javier Saviola in leaving.
Barcelona was looking to recruit "a left winger, a central defender, one or two midfielders and one or two forwards," Laporta said.
Giovani dos Santos and Bojan Krkic should be promoted from Barcelona's youth squad to the first team for next season, he added.

Technical director of Roma is in Barcelona. The one that handles all the financial things will be in Barcelona tomorrow. That means only thing Chivu will be a Barca player this week IF Barca offers a good amount of money. Probably around the 15million euros.

yea bayern are making all the big transfers this season, i think they mean business this season. after a dissapointing bundesliga i think they want to prove that they are germanys top team and one of the best in europe.

milan are just looking for players that will assist the team, theres no point for them to be splashing the cash around, they have a good team, i think milan should concentrate on bringin in some good youth players from either there youth teams or other places. they have the best player in the world and a very good supporting cast for now. i mean look at inter they make all these transfers and still it gets them nowhere.

I wouldn't say winning them the Serie A championship as getting nowhere but I get your point. They waste their money way too much and should have won more by now with the amount they spent.

Obviously, they haven't bought wisely.

milan are usually pretty good on transfers, except for a few players (mostly forwards) but they should worry about replacing Costacurta and Maldini...

i wonder who will step in to buy makaay, uli wants serious cash, he says we paid big for him so we have to get decent in return, this reminds me too much of the bullshit elber/makaay saga, would be good if makaay stayed though, especially since we're usually short on strikers, schlaudraff isn't up to it at this stage imo

Feyenoord is getting Makaay.

Madrid is Madrid, ran by a bunch of morons who are too happy to show off their power. give the club back to the socios... well, they elected him and Mijatovic... vicious circle.
but as i said, a winning coach who leaves, that just happened in France, Italy, Spain... maybe in England, hell i don't know, this football world don't make any sense.

madrid are sacking capello because the football is not pretty enough for them.

he coachs a more defensive style, effective, but just not what madrid fans, and in turn board, want to see.

word. as of late milan have a knack for getting players either, cheap, young, or older that people didnt think were good/over the hill and yet always winning.

not spending out the anus like inter, with inter winning a grain of salt compaired to milans trophy haul.

This is without a doubt the second blockbuster transfer move of the summer; the Albiceleste wizard (requilme) moves to Atlético Madrid along with former “Pichchi” Diego Forlán. According to Marca and As, the two players will move over to the Colchoneros for an estimated €30 million

thats big.

Atletico always make big moves, but are the worse managed club in Spain... such a waste of talent and money, just because of the president's ego.

last time i heard, Torres is supposedly worth 45 million according to Atletico's president... let's cut the crap, he ain't the best forward in the world. truth is they can't sell him coz he's been a little overrated since he started.
they have Aguerro, Luccin, they bought Recoba, now maybe Riquelme and Forlan. well, good luck to the coach, that's gonna be an unmanageable team...

they have one of the best coach presently, after a disapointing year, the next one will be the good one


speaking abou copa america, dunga is so weak... but hugo sanchez too
this game was a little boring

for 1 minute
i thought usa were gonna upset argentina coz they were tied 1 - 1 for the longest time
messi was dangerous!!
i think argentina is winning this tournament hands down

yes dunga isnt the best of coaches...i dont know why they chose him to be the coach...and his player selection isnt all that impressive

hopefully brazil gets felipe scolari back as coach once hes done with portugal next year
then brazil will be playing better

my team besiktas sign edouard cisse from psg. he will probably flop and leave in a couple months. hopefully not, we got a good young team a young manager, if he can get used to our mad fans, 500 greeted him when he got off the plane and mobed him. then he will be fine.
