i think none of the big 4 really care about the FA cup, they all gunning for the league and champs league trophies. the FA cup is just a waste of time for them.

Disagree. Chelsea always go for the domestic cups no matter what, but hey what can i say? Chelsea didnt perform. Every dog has its day.

the EPL have sacrificed their own players in the search of continental glory. english teams so depserately want to be crowned kings of europe and are doing their part in the downfall of english football. there's no point even debating which is the best league because it's an endless argument that goes around in circles, better to just enjoy the top quality leagues for what they are. the year 3 of 4 spanish teams made the semi finals of the champions league did that make la liga better than anybody? no

EPL is NOT a 4 league team. it's a 3 league team. anyone who thinks liverpool are serious title contenders during any year is a fucking idiot kidding themselves

the only luck in football is if you shoot the ball from the half way line, the balls going straight then the wind moves it away from the goalkeeper. liverpool won the champs league by showing more heart.

i kno liverpool are totally crap in the EPL but they are the best english team in europe. they always perform. unknown reasons for this.

not just liverpool winning the UCL but anyone who wins wins it on luck. it's not a week in week out competition, it's spread out through the course of the season, you find out in december you'll play a team in february - that's a massive fucking gap between matches. you can end up losing half your squad to injury. stuttgart had a massive plight of injuries and now they're all fit they're starting to hit straps in die bundesliga. they came dead last in their group but if they had their full squad anything could of happened. milan a few years ago tore shit up in europe and come february choked like no other, they got hit with a few injuries and their form dipped. like frank rijkaard said UCL is all about getting as far as you can and any team that prioritises winning the champions league is stupid - yeah it's a fucking great honour to win but winning your domestic league is a truer indiciation of how good you are ... liverpool win europe and weren't even within a country mile of chel$ki

Arsenal will face Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the Champions League after they were paired together in Friday's draw in Nyon, Switzerland.
Arsene Wenger's side will play the first leg at home on 1/2 April, with the return leg at Anfield on 8/9 April.

Manchester United, who beat Lyon to reach the last eight, were drawn against Real Madrid's conquerors Roma.

Chelsea, the fourth English club in the draw, meet Fenerbahce, with Schalke 04 and Barcelona the other fixture drawn.

The winners of the Arsenal-Liverpool fixture will then face Chelsea or Fenerbahce in the semi-finals, with Manchester United or Roma drawn against Barcelona or Schalke 04 in the last four, with the legs taking place on the 22/23 April and 29/30 April.

606: DEBATE
Your thoughts on the draw

It means if Chelsea overcome Fenerbahce in the quarter-final, England will be guaranteed a presence in the final in Moscow on 21 May.

Liverpool chief executive Rick Parry could barely hide his disappointment after the draw, saying: "I think we'd hoped to avoid an English team. But, statistically, an all-English tie was bound to happen and it's happened to us. I guess at least we've avoided a trip to Turkey.

"We're also playing Arsenal in the league in between the quater-final legs so that will be interesting. I don't think there will be any surprises for either side in those games.

"We'll take each match as it comes but, of course, we've noticed we might also face another English side (Chelsea) in the last four as well."

It should make for compelling viewing and, after the way we played against AC Milan, we must have a lot of belief that we can go all the way

Arsenal managing director Keith Edelman

Arsenal managing director Keith Edelman added: "I think we'd have preferred European competition. Liverpool are a great team and are fantastic in this competition and, with three games against them in a week, I'm sure the tactics in each tie will be under close scutiny."

"It should make for compelling viewing and, after the way we played against AC Milan, we must have a lot of belief that we can go all the way."

Manchester United club secretary Ken Ramsden, meanwhile, said: "It's a good draw for us, I think.

"As a fan I'm happy we're playing continental opposition and we have a good record against them too. I'm sure the manager will also be happy that we're playing at home in the second leg so we're content with that."

Chief executive Peter Kenyon was equally happy to have avoided an English side in the draw, adding: "I'm delighted. There are no easy draws at this stage, but we wanted to avoid an English side and we've done that.

"Despite a couple of disappointing results of late, we've complete confidence in the team and coaching staff to ensure we have a good end to the season."

Haha, "barely any others made the finals" and I thought an English team had made it to the last three of them (with another almost guaranteed to make it this time).

And you clearly don't watch English football if you think Arsenal are the only ones that play attractively.

For starters Man U play beautiful football. Plenty of other clubs play attractively as well (e.g. Spurs).

From a football purists point of view, one that likes nice free flowing attacking attractive football, the argentine league is definatly better. But the BPL also benifiets from having a lot better players (because of all the $$ in the league) than the clasura. Not to mentions the Argies good players get pipped quite younge. Like i said, the BPL is plenty entertaining. Even two lower level teams can make for a fun game to watch. But in terms of what really makes football nice, it just doesnt do it all the time.

Rooney, Giggz, Tevez are all great players. But like you said, they are grind it out players. Even C.Ron when he played againt Milan last year, or against Italy this year for Porto didnt do A THING. Because they dont play the game how its played in England. He has emence skill and speed. The english game suits him because theres so much space it allows him to fly at, than by, defenders. When the game gets compact and he has to combine and move the balls and make good passes things get tougher for him.

Like someone else said argueing which league is better gets you no where. But the english do like to tout their league and their national team as the best around, when they never seem to win anything. (Or at least in proportion to the way the big up themselves).

HANZO
03-14-2008, 04:56 PM
the argentine league is great to watch. i try to watch as many games as i can. a lot of talented players on show their.

with the champs league draws, i do see roma doing something. i think they are playing effective football at the right time. they could beat man utd, if they get it tactically right on the night.

liverpool - arsenal is jus gonna be like a premiership game, the team that does well away and grabs the away goals will most likely go through.

chelsea have an easy tie against fenerbahce, chelsea will jus need to defend well in this game, fenerbahce have a lot going forward but even the weakest teams in the turkish league can easily penetrate their defense.

barcelone - schalke should be interesting schalke are good and can spring a surprise. it all depends on how well barca can play really. when there forwards get going no one can stop them.

could be coinsodence. could be roman flexing his green muscles. i mean chelsea did draw the weakest team left...



certain balls could have been slightly different material. had a substance on them. put in a freezer before hand so they just picked the two cold ones....just some thoughts.

ICLiverpool's Liverpool FC forum was bombarded by thousands of football fans when, at 10.28am, more than 90 minutes before the draw, a user, claimed that he knew that Liverpool and Arsenal, Manchester United and Roma, Chelsea and Fenerbahce, and Barcelona and Schalke would be pitted together.
The post also said that bookmakers had stopped taking bets, valued at 119/1 on this scenario ringing true.
UEFA spokesman William Gaillard has publicly denied that there was any ‘fix’ in the draw.“There is no way that the draw was rigged,” Gaillard insisted.
“This draw was made in front of millions of TV viewers and so many officials – I just don’t see how it could be possible.
“The balls were not marked at all and they were put in the bowls and shuffled around before they were drawn. I was there and it was all done properly and I know the people who did that draw are 150 per cent honest.
“I cannot understand how this happened – he must have had supernatural powers.”

I watch Italian football every sunday (when there's not a good prem game that clashes). it's a good league, I just find it a little dull at times. there are some exciting games, but the general pace is a bit slow for my liking.

I also watch the Spanish league fairly regularly. The skillful players get alot more time on the ball than in the Prem. Alot of players who are successful in the Spanish league would not be successful in the Prem, but alot of players who struggle in the prem go on to be successful in the Spanish league (Forlan, Rossi etc).

Of the three, the Prem is by far the most entertaining to watch and is around the same level technically as the other two.

If we were gonna be picky, I'd say the Prem was technically the lowest rated of the three leagues, but not by much and it more than makes up for it in entertainment.

The fact that the England team is a bag of shite and full of over rated wankers shouldn't cloud people's judgement about how good the English league is.

but at the time he was bought defoe was still on their books. and their top 2 strikers are a lock. so they basically bought a 3rd or 4th forward at the time, for 16 million dollars. that is such a riduclous waste of money i cant even comprehend. maybe if they would have spent that on 1 or 2 good backs they wouldnt be sitting mid table.

on the arsenal v. chelsea game today. i found it fucking hilarious that after grant made that double substition about 2/3s through the game, the chelsea fans started chanting "jose morinho" and "you dont know what your doing". clearly referencing grant. and than they go score two goals and win 2-1. what a bunch of cunts chelsea fans are. jose was all talk. anyone can coach that team with the players they have.

No he wasn't. He won the Premier League twice, doesn't look like Grant is going to. Ranieri didn't win it before Mourinho arrived either. And he won the Champions League with Porto. They didn't have anything like the money Chelsea did.

I hate Chelsea, but I'm not gonna knock Mourinho's talents as a manager.

03-23-2008, 08:18 PM
Grant, in general doesn't know what hes doing. see the carling cup final for example, or the game last wednesday for another. hes not a manager. although it was a great result today the chelsea fans have every right to chant whatever they want. we pay alot of money to go see that team. in your money we pay $98 a game to see chelsea. thats alot of money in comparison to other teams. so we can say whatever we want to be honest. without the fans there would be no football clubs.

mourinho is a king. you wont realise that until he manages your favourite team.

He didn't win the champions league with chelsea, a team with supremely talented players compaired to his porto squad. He also lucked out that year he won it, playing against monaco in the final. Lets be honest, knockout compititions just happen like that, but there were surley lots better teams that year that he could have played instead of monaco. (i dont blame him for that, because you cant pick who you play, but you get my point)

He didn't win the league last year, he wasn't even close to winning the league this year. Grant has actually brought them closer to winning the league this year.

They didn't win the league with Ranieri, but they came close. Chelsea didn't get loaded with players till Jose came in.

In my opinion the two years Chelsea did win, were down years for the likes of the other big 3 (or 2 however you look at it).

i still can't see how you can dump mourinho ... but chel$ki problem was always abramovich ... he wanted people like shevchenko when mourinho didn't and that kind of friction can't function because the amount of money sheva is getting you can't waste that on the bench ... but it disrupts what was already a winning formula ... chel$ki would of been better off keeping the basis of the side and just bring in two or three young ones for development

im hoping milan scoops him up, as i heard he is a bit homesick.

he was playing in serie C until like 25. hes a bit of a late bloomer. but how he scores isnt really with pace. its more about positioning and quality control. those qualities last a while, he could easily still pump in a lot of goals for 4/5 more years and still be affective until 37/38 barring any injuries.

and i totally 100% agree with getting amauri for italy. he would fit perfect as one of the wing men in donadonis 4-5-1/4-3-3 formation. in defence its the first, in attack the latter.

i think brazil is stupid for not calling him up. but if you think about it, wheres the room? kaka, robinho, ronaldinho, anderson, fred, pato, (id say vagner love, but i think hes a buster) all really good forward/attacking players. and thats withstanding the guys i cant name off the top of my head real quick.

haha whitey sheringham is like 41, 42 and the mofo was still scoring goals in the championship ... and luca toni, i was a bit ehhh when he came becaused if prefer a midfielder since we had a few strikers ... but thank fuck he did. how long we can hold him? i dont think we will keep him long. nor ribery. our team is going to fall apart in two years, lahm is going to leave and maybe schweinsteiger ... ze roberto will retire, lucio looks set to take a final big contract, van buyten wants out, demichelis is in career best form so someone will come looking ...

toni could do it ... 38 for a striker, he wouldnt be at a big team he would be like sheringham and play somewhere serie b or something ... dwight yorke came here and played for sydney fc at like 35 and played the best of his career for sydney and trinidad since his united days ... benito carbone and kazu miura came too, 37 or something ... kazu was 39 and both tore shit up ... romario came and flopped

now im telling all you people here ... mario gomez IS that MOTHERFUCKER. you watch him at euro 2008 ... i actually think he is similar to toni ... big and strong BUT he has so much control of the ball for a big man that it's unbelievable and he has extraordinary pace that's deceptive ... this man IS stuttgart and if it weren't for him they'd be in pieces ... gomez is certainly the future of german football and when toni kroos comes into that team they're going to be hard to stop in 2010

LOL @ Austria ... 3-0 up and lose 4-3 ... makes me ALMOST feel sorry for them ... but in a way i do be cause the press are saying stupid shit like "replace us with a better team at euro 2008" thats shit you should be getting behind your team no matter what ... 100 losses in a row and you should still cheer and support like it aint a thing. id be disgusted if i were an austrian player ... reverse psychology though ??

03-27-2008, 05:57 AM
i did laugh at that austria score. but they were playing the netherlands. getting up 3-0 is an accomplishment in a sense for a smaller footballing nation.


and mario gomez is good. there was also talk about milan buying him. haha i love how every good striker these days is linked with milan. but im fine with it. possibly super pippo is replaced by super mario ?!?!?! that would be sick.


i read today that drogba told his chelsea teammates he will sign for inter in the summer. get the fuck out of here with all those forwards. having adriano coming back. plus the youngster ballotelli who is dirty as a bitch. that would be 7 QUALITY forwards. iiddddioooots. but i would assume that possibly means jose will be taking over? interesting.

SKANK HILL
03-27-2008, 06:15 AM
lol i thought inter signed only argentineans anyway ... apparently roma, milan and juve are interested in gomez ... id say roma would be the best option but i would doubt he would turn milan down ... plus milan will have a massive fuckin clean out, they will be the most active in the transfer market for sure ... keep away from bayern and its all good hahaha ...

but serious, droba to inter ... why? why would you do it? the perennial chokers of european football? damn. milan would be a better option, they need a striker bad ... ronaldo gone, pippo kicking on ... that leaves pato and gilardino ... paloschi only like 17 so they could use him ...

another team that could definately use drogba is man united. they havent got an all out and out striker. they might be leading and they might have rooney and tevez but neither of those are out and out striker, theyre more like a dennis bergkamp and they need a henry or ruud van nistelrooy. if i were drogba i would go to manchester united

a bad/unlucky result for roma.

controlling the game than ronaldo comes out of no where 100mph and burries that headball.

than still controlling the game and missing a sitter by panucci, and van der star saving a great attempt later in the game.

rooney gets a gift from doni and it ends 2-0.


once the game opened up ronaldo had more space and started tearing shit up, but in the end couldnt get another. (did hit the post, and also just miss with a nice volley).


looks like roma will need to do A LOT to move on. having totti back should help, but i dont think they can do it. although i would really like to see them do it.


Bojan scores again. kids on a tear. but hes been getting a lot of garbage clean up goals. i think barcas going through there though. that would be a collosal match up with deco, ronnie, and messi fit. MAN U v. Barca. would be a dream final. but semis are good too.


i think chelsea will crush fener tomorrow.

and arsenal liverpool will tie. and liverpool move on in the next game. i actually think straight up arsenal is a better team, i just think the pool gets lucky in the champs league and arsenal is in a bit of poor form, while torres is busting ass.


and thats my CL synopsis for the day.

LOL man u v barca would be a dream final or any united fan ... barcas defense is garbage ... united will no problem with barcelona if they continue this. they need some decent defenders ... schalke should of had a penalty but should of buried two clear cut chances as well ... on another day schalke could of had barca but it wasnt to be and that's it ... they won't take anything from the nou camp

no way will chel$ki crush fenerbahce ... not in turkey anyway ... don't under estimate them they are a decent team and in a fierce turkish environment the crowd can be the 12th man sometimes ... i'd say a draw in turkey and the crushing will happen back in london ... i think arsenal will get liverpool tomorrow and hold off in anfield

liverpool 1 - 1 arsenal, advantage liverpool i say, arsenal dominated possesion had some very good chances but couldnt do much.

fenerbahce 2 - 1 chelsea, well chelsea dominated the first 60 minutes of the game. had good chances still couldnt score, they were gifted a goal. some good substitutions saw fener make a good comeback. amazing 2nd goal by deivid.

dnt kno about the arsenal - liverpool tie, but im still sure chelsea will make it through.

a bad/unlucky result for roma.

controlling the game than ronaldo comes out of no where 100mph and burries that headball.


They weren't controlling the game. They had marginally more possession than Utd in the first half.

Roma did dominate possesion for the first 15 - 20 minutes of the second half and Utd definitely rode their luck on a couple of occasions, but at no point did Roma "control the game".
They had trouble contolling the ball, let alone the game.
Overall, Roma were poor and the better team won.

naaah, adibal i think is how you spell is his name. he might not be a straight back but definatly on the defensive side of that squad.


thuram is part of the problem i think, really getting to old. i hope he goes to euros instead of mexes bc of that dumbass domenche and italy tears that ass up.

To say Jose never could is a bit dumb. If he had stayed at the club I'm sure he would have brought them the Champs League at some point. You can't say someone failed cos they didn't manage to win it in three atempts. Most people rate Fergie as a manager, but he's only managed to win it once (so far) in all his years at Man U. When saying he didn't come near winning the P'ship in his last season at Chelsea, you left out the fact that he won the League twice in his three years.

You just had to watch Chelsea in the Carling Cup final and the away leg against Fenebache, to see that Avram Grant is no Mourinho.

My use of "never could" was only speaking to what he did or did not to while there in comparison to what Avram Grant will do or not do while there in only his 1st season. With a team he inhereted and with only 1 new addition, Anelka; who hasnt exactly lit it up.

If Grant can do it with the same players, with the same dressing room unrest, the same front office mismanagement, and possibly win the premier league, how can anyone really talk shit about him when jose could not do the same in 3 years?

Thats my only point. Im not saying Grant is a great manager or anything, I just think jose is extremely overrated (not bad at all, good infact, just not "the god").

the only good thing for bayern is they played agains spartak moscow last year ... and apart from ribery, toni and klose it's basically the same team that will play ... but you're right, conditions are dreadful. weather is shithouse and the russians are used to it. bayern have to try and put them away at home ... i think we're at home in the first leg ... luca toni misses the first leg through suspension

anybody see mutu's goal against PSV ?? fucking cracker

hahaha, the sudden silence says it all. after watching that you cant help but realise that all Bayern had to do was to just launch the ball inside. Toni towers over every Getafe player.

Milan Vice President Adriano Galliani has declared that the club have all but signed Ronaldinho and Andriy Shevchenko, stating that both are “180 per cent Milan players”...........(knocking on wood)

Sure it's true for Shevchenko, won't believe Ronaldinho till it's official. Not saying it's not gonna happen, but wouldn't be surprised if someone came in at the last moment and snapped him up.

i don't really think anyone is as desperate for ronnie as milan ... i don't think anybody will splash the cash for him ... chel$ki have it but won't ... no other club would do it and milan have been chasing him for a while

Im still gutted bout da match at anfield on tuesday, d betta team lost and luck was on liverpools side yet agen (penalty decisions in both legs). I enjoyed watching highlights of the UEFA Cup matches last night well done to all who went through they were deserved winners over both legs. But it mite av been different foe Getafe had they not been down to 10 men for over a 100 mins of play, i think it'll be rangers vs bayern in the final with the german team winning the final itself. I jus hope the gunners can pull off a shock on sunday and beat the champions elect.

They seem to be ready to let him go for alot less than most would expect though. Allegedly they offered him to Man City in January!

Interesting.

Anyway, in UCL my eggs are in the Barca basket now, after Arsenal were knocked out.

Im pretty much just hoping an English team doesnt win it, and if they do, that it isnt fucking LIverpool.

but barca could pretty much hold out for 40,50m euro and milan would pay it considering they lined up a 110m euro bid for him a season ago ... henry looks certain to leave barca aswell with newcastle or man citeh his likely english destination ... drogba possibly to barca ... barca are doing the right thing in keeping eto'o though

whitey
04-12-2008, 11:08 AM
i think if barca bring in drogba they run into the same problem as with henry. they like playing eto'o ,who is younger than both, in that center position of the 3 forwards. that is where henry played at arsenal, and where he is at his best, but he has been played out to the left, and you can tell that is effecting him. drogba also plays in the center of the pitch, hence why sheva got shafted because he had to play on the wing and he is not a winger at all. what do you do? play drogba and eto'o as a two man forward line? that would work, but than what do you do with messi and bojan? make them play more midfield roles where they have to waste more energy playing defense? i dont know about that.

drogba would be perfect at milan because they like playing with that point striker, and have the midfield to support him. but if they bring back sheva (which looks likely, for a lot cheaper i would assume) they run into the same quagmire they had a chelsea. so i dont think drogba will land in milan. unless its inter, who loves to just stockpile good forwards so who knows.

the ronaldinho to milan move as ive read from a couple places is agreed on in principle. a deal worth 40 or 50 million dollars. thats IT. that is awsome for milan. which turns out to be like 22 million euros. it makes the sheva deal look that much better, considering they sold sheva for 30 million euros at 2 years older.


milan getting sheva back at the point striker where he belongs to pump in goals like he used to. with 2 out of the 3 of kaka, ronaldinho and pato behind him running wild on teams. behind them would be the pirlo gattuso ambrosino (or another horse of d mid that they may bring in). than zambrotta, nesta, kaldeze, and bonera or oddo on the right. siiiick. although they do need to bring in another second forward, a jon dal tommasson type player. someone who is good but is content with playing a lesser role at a massive club. and another younger defender or two in the back for cover/the future.

a goalie would be nice, but i think kalac would be good enough for 1 more year to make sure they dont over spend on someone and get a good deal on a younger keeper. possibly the mexican Ochoa, hes a gem.

Juve 3 - 2 Milan, game was good until the sending off. stupid tackle on sissoko, nearly the same as the eduardo incident. really fuked up Milans champs league chances.

Barca 2 - 2 Recreativo. Barca continue to slide i think La Liga is gone for them now.

Bremen 5 - 1 Schalke. shokin, but i guess Schalke are jus dissapointed at being out of the champs league.

milan v. juve was a good game. shitty result for me but none the less. very dissapointing if we do not make champions league.

juves second goal was offsides. and the foul that set up the third goal was not there. shoulder to shoulder.




thinking about picking these boots up when they drop....siiiiiiick...

bayern destroyed dortmund 5-0 ... 10 point lead now and that's the league wrapped up pretty much since we don't meet anyone in contention and there's 6 games to go ... we meet dortmund in the cup final on the 19th and i can guarentee it won't be 5-0 ... i think we've just given BVB more ammunition ... luca toni cracks 31 goals in all competitions in his debut season for bayern

Looks like inter are very interested in Ronaldinho also, should be interesting to see what comes of that, as the Milan deal seemed to be a formality.

Schalke sacked Slomka over night, not a huge surprise really given the expectations, but still pretty harsh on a side that has performed relatively well with season.

Harsh defeat for Arsenal, but Man U's depth really shone through. Hoping chelsea win and make the final rounds interesting.

interesting article:
http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/14042008/58/champions-league-torres-spanish-league-stronger.html

Torres says he believes that the Spanish primera liga is stronger than the English premier league.

so the arguement continues....

soul controller

la liga is much stronger. the amount of teams that have beaten the top 4 teams.. the points between the top and bottom are one of the lowest in a league in europe.
the players are technically and mentally better..
from torres point of view.. he has to do more work.. to create a chance.. or an opening.. he has to beat his man in spain.. but in england.. its alot easier for a player with skill and tehcnique as the defenders dont back off u.. their right on u.. easier for u to turn.. as their already onthe move.. its harder in england for the lower teams to beat the top few,.

I agree with the Spanish league having a broader range of stronger teams. i mean like this year you have Villareal near the top. your never gonna get to see a team like Everton or Man city break into the top 2 in the Premier League.
