^oh jeez give it a break. How can you say that after a goal like that.

Its like saying "apart from the incredible team goal Brazil scored in the 1970 WC final vs Italy, they really arent as good as people made them out to be"


you seem to be missing the point of football or something. You are over-analysing when theres no need to.

He is top scorer in the league (and he only started playing in October). He has half a dozen assists.

He is doing what he's paid for. Simple as that. No questioning gossip or hate needed. Just enjoy him. no homo.

i came home from work specially to watch.

wish i hadnt now. even though all our youngsters looked good.

i have no idea why Vidic and Rio were taking the first few pen's.

And we shouldnt of bought Scholes on. Park was doing OK.

Scholes is totally innefective these days.

04-19-2009, 02:11 PM
i like to see it when old players are still doing well for their clubs... but yeah Neville and Scholes arent amazing anymore.

I hoped Foster would save a few pens, just to atleast get noticed by Capello. but he probably made it worse. Jagielkas goal... he made little attempt to save the defeat.

Ghost In The 'Lac
04-19-2009, 03:17 PM
Foster was SO SLOW today. Everytime he got the ball passed back he took like 30 secs to fucking kick it. I think he likes the camera time or something.

Plus he needs to tuck his shirt in. Im not convinced by Foster at all yet. Hes looked shaky in all games apart from the carling cup final imo. I thought this ever since he got lobbed at Celtic park in the CL.

im glad howard saved the first two. im sure he felt good about himself after that.

but in reality i dont think man u care they lost. i think sir alex can say whatever he wants about how the FA cup is important, the league and CL trumps easily.




milan 2-0 at the half. 2 pippo goals, off of 2 beckham crosses. seriously cannot emphasize what an asset his ball playing ability is.

and pippo, what else can you say, this guy can play till hes 40 easy. maybe longer. hes has a hunger for goals like a shark does flesh.

Real Madrid's Pepe To Rack Up Massive Suspension After Triple Red Card

The Portuguese ace lost the rag during his side's win over Getafe.

Getafe (http://www.goal.com/en-us/teams/spain/294/getafe)
Real Madrid (http://www.goal.com/en-us/teams/spain/124/real-madrid)


Real Madrid (http://www.goal.com/en/teams/spain/124/real-madrid) centerback Pepe (http://www.goal.com/en/people/portugal/5580/pepe) was shown the red card no fewer than three times as his side edged Getafe (http://www.goal.com/en/teams/spain/294/getafe) at the Santiago Bernabeu.

With the scores level at 2-2, Pepe hauled down Geta's Javier Casquero (http://www.goal.com/en/people/spain/1514/casquero) in the box, earning a second booking. Then the defender also twice kicked out at the supine midfielder, before apparently stamping on him.

The furious stopper had to be escorted off the pitch by goalkeeper Iker Casillas amidst ugly scenes that also saw a small battle break out at full time, largely involving the Azulones defender Daniel 'Cata' Diaz.

The Madrid side went on to win (http://www.goal.com/en-us/news/88/spain/2009/04/21/1222257/real-madrids-pepe-to-rack-up-massive-suspension-after-triple-red-#) the match after Iker Casillas saved the weak penalty and Gonzalo Higuain netted a last-second winner for the ten-man Blancos, but with Pepe now likely to miss three games at the absolute minimum, coach Juande Ramos has a defensive headache (http://www.goal.com/en-us/news/88/spain/2009/04/21/1222257/real-madrids-pepe-to-rack-up-massive-suspension-after-triple-red-#) ahead of him.

i think it was arshavins second goal, nearly took reinas hand off. liverpool have fucked it up. we dominated that game.... but they were quick on the counter attack.

that was the fastest/quickest played game I possibly have ever seen played.

^didnt you see arsenal/spurs 4-4? that went to the wire... and was fast as fuck near the end.

anyway, arsenal just helped man utd get the premiership, as some fucks always do. to go in alex's pocket along with his 2 games in hand - there you go alex.

without Gerrard do liverpool have to score and concede 4?

just go away. your lost here.

no one is saying there was great defending in the game.

but any amateur football fan can appreciate the incredible the speed and skill that they were playing the game last night, and some of the skill of the arsenal players was intense.

and since when did poor defending have anything to do with the speed you play the game at?

but again, its lost on you, your a bayern fan from australia.lol

I don't recall saying poor defending had anything to do with the speed. :?

I was highlighting the fact that 4-4 games on intense pace and skill happen in other leagues far more frequently than in the EPL but EPL "purists" crap on about how it is bad defending in those leagues but since it happened yesterday it is suddenly the greatest game on earth, as some of you here have said, and in the media.

LOL I got that trophy aswell. FIFA 09 has NFI.

I played a full season, had Thomas Müller play ONE game in the cup and he scored 2 goals.

1 game 2 goals and he was named the best player and made the best team of the year and Luca Toni who scored 40+ and Podolski who scored 30 odd didn't make it lol

Plus, my stats in game are all even, saying I have played exactly 100 games winning 50% scoring 1 goal per game conceeding 1 goal per game. I went through an entire season undefeated and played 3 seasons, that is not exactly 100 games.

04-22-2009, 11:28 AM
1 thing i never liked about fifa is how they dog assits in the official statbook. you can look at it on your team but there isnt a league wide assist leader category like there is for goals and shutouts and cards ect.

another thing is the season ending teams. they need to do something about that. the computer bases it on the "match rating" that they get. but a lot of plugs get on the season ending team because if they never play but have a good game they have a super high rating, while even really good guys you play all year will get dogged because they cant get 10s every game.

i would like to see them add a golden ball winner and world player of the year to the fifa series. might be kinda hard, but i think it would be sick.

yeah its all down to player rating, average over the season... from positioning on the picth, to takles, dribbles etc..

if you play be a pro season youll realise how your marked.

im a few games into a season in with my created player (be a pro mode - they even say "Scott" when i get the ball lol)... im reserve captain/first team choice(Liverpool), unnoticed by England.

i chose my player to be a CAM but he alwas plays left wing, taking Albert Rieras place (lol) still... i hog and get a goal often and have an average of 8.0.

i only started playing this since i got bored with mamnger mode, but i just finished a season last night (got purist trophy)... now im planning on selling David Villa for 50 million if someone like man city are interested... to get that trophy.

Chelsea were very good today, they played with discipline and defended really well. They looked to play on the counter and just crowd the midfield. It worked, they allowed Barca to keep the ball and pass it about.

If Chelsea had a more offensive mind, Barca would have ripped them apart on the counter attack.

Its open for both teams, but i can see Chelsea beating Barca at Stamford Bridge because of Barca's defence not being at full strength.

because of the pick your best 11 thread and tones following remarks...

sza : need a better right back to, i only put him in cus he's fast as lightning. Im going to go for Zambrotta, he was amazing in the World Cup. By the way the players i have picked im picking them as though they are in their prime.

But who's the best right back ever?

whitey:yea i hear you, thats how i did my alltime list. it was those players at the height of their careers.

cafu i dont think can be fucked with. i put zanetti just because of what a machine he is. zambrotta would also be a legitimate pick in my opinion.


but these are also guys of the last 20 years, there prob is other really good ones i never saw play

bonerfarm: lol Zambrotta? Zambrotta has nothing on Thuram, Cafú, Panucci in their day.

whitey: zambrotta>panucci all day every day. not a question.

as sza said thuram wasnt a threat out of the back. it depends on what system you want to play. steadfast back line or one with wing backs.

bonerfarm:So what? Thuram was still the better player.

whitey:debatable.

bonerfarm: Debatable? Not for shit.

whitey: dont let the german/australian dissapointment of 06 blind your ability to see that is not as clear cut as you make it out to be.

not debatable for shit is ronaldo or robbie fowler.

debatable is zambrotta or thuram. ill pose it in the football thread and well see its debatablitiy based on the answers.

Ghost In The 'Lac
05-03-2009, 05:18 PM
lol zambrotta was far superior to fucking Panucci.

people forget in the 2003/4 sort of era, Zambrotta was clearly considered the best full back in the world.

idk why BONERfarm decided to randomly start comparing Zambrotta to a bunch of RB's, when everyone knows him for being the right footed LB under Lippi at Juve.

If your gonna compare him to anyone frmo that time, it would be Carlos. And Carlos would have him beatdown.

whitey
05-04-2009, 04:53 PM
i dont find it to hard to compare left backs and right backs. essentially its the same position.

comparing center backs with a left or right back is a big difference.

just like a right winger or left winger is comparable to me. but a center striker or a winger is not. just like an attacking mid is not comparable to a holding or defensive mid.

thats where the problem lies with the zambrotta v. thuram debate. i see thuram as more of a center back. outside backs are meant to get forward in the attack. he didnt really do that. so then to pick the better player even though position wise they arent comparable it really comes down to who was better at their position, and in that sense it is debatable.

we were on a different level to arsenal and thats that.

we were just too strong, Arsenal couldnt play. THey just couldnt get in the game. at all. I dont remember Cesc playing in either games. Adebayor was awful too. Arse's best players in the 2 legs were Gibbs and Nasri and probably bendtner LOL. Obviosuly Almunia was your best player though.

I was surprised Deinlson was dropped for both games, I was also surprised that you seemed to miss him.


Anyway the whole Fletcher thing has ruined it all anyway. He wouldve been just the player important against Chelsea or Barca. He is a big miss. Ridiculous decision, but also it has to be overturned.

They overturn red cards in EPL all the fucking time for incorrect calls. Terry and Freidel alone this season have both had red cards recindid because the ref said he made a mistake.

todays game is what i really really love about football my dudes. that ending, the feeling of supreme joy on one side and the agonizing pain on the other. a moment of brilliance decides entry into the biggest club game in football. its what every player plays the game for. that moment. iniesta is a god for a night.

in all fairness. italy are da gods.


This morning’s Italian sports (http://www.goal.com/en-us/news/87/germany/2009/05/08/1253342/werder-bremen-ace-diegos-dream-move-to-juventus-virtually-complet#) papers are all screaming that Werder Bremen (http://www.goal.com/en/teams/germany/147/sv-werder-bremen) trequartista Diego (http://www.goal.com/en/people/brazil/3257/diego) is set to be announced as Juventus (http://www.goal.com/en/teams/italy/3/juventus)’ first signing for next season. The player’s father (http://www.goal.com/en-us/news/87/germany/2009/05/08/1253342/werder-bremen-ace-diegos-dream-move-to-juventus-virtually-complet#) and agent, Djair da Cunha, is clearly over the moon.
“Is it a done deal (http://www.goal.com/en-us/news/87/germany/2009/05/08/1253342/werder-bremen-ace-diegos-dream-move-to-juventus-virtually-complet#)? Yes, you can say so,” he enthused in an interview with the Corriere dello Sport.

“Better yet, you can say that it’s a 100 per cent done deal between Juve and Diego. Now Werder and Juve…”

It has been suggested that the clubs reached an agreement on Wednesday night, when Juventus directors met with their counterparts in Bremen.

“It’s not up to me to say it, the clubs have to speak,” muttered Djair. “Let’s just say that I am waiting on an official announcement from Werder.





this is big for juve if its true. they have been missing that attacking play maker lately.

Ghost In The 'Lac
05-08-2009, 08:55 AM
Diego is a fine player. IVe been watchign him ever since he was at Santos with Robinho, they were incredible back then together. Juve need a new striker though.

finally chelsea get a taste of their own medicine, after going thru in Euro ties unfairly in recent years.

like the pen they got against Liverpool, or the John Terry goal vs Barca when Carvalho was holding down Valdes.

Only 1 of their claims was a pen. THe pique one. THe other ones are all debatable, the first one was obstruction, which isnt a penalty anyway, its an indirect free kick.

And they got VERY lucky again with Abidal getting sent off, nobody touched Anelka, he dived simple as that, he tripped himself up, hes scum.

They are all scum. They think the world owes them something, even though they spent 90% of both legs putting 10 men inside theyre own penalty box.

Yeah, it is very competitive and usualy has a thrilling finish. Last year was total dominance for Bayern, but a few years ago it produced the craziest finish to a league season. 94th minute indirect free kick for Bayern to win the game after Schalke had finished their game 2 minutes earlier and lead the championship only for Patrik Andersson to score from the free kick :lmao: Schalke forever known as the two minute champions.

What happened to that Turkish team that was leading the comp on some Hoffenheim shit? Petkovic is their goalkeeper. Actually, I am kind of surprised to see how many Australians play in that league with a couple of them at Genclerbirligi.

Speaking of Turkey, Bayern are a much better team with Hamit Altintop playing. I hope this kid stays injury free for a long time.

sadly i think i must concede milans hopes for the scudetto have all but been extincted.

still looks like a close finishing second place is what will come of the season.

not bad when you take a look at the injury list. nesta; one of the top 5 center backs in the world didnt play a game all year, gattuso missed most of the year, boriello missed almost the whole year, abbiti is missing the last quarter of the year, kaldaze has missed 2/3s the year. kaka and ronaldinho also missed big portions of the season.

but i think if we bring in a quality back, along with the already bought tiago silva. plus nesta coming back (hopefully) and bringing groucuff and becks back when hes done with mls. maybe a goalie, but abbiati is pretty decent. i think we should be ok and back to contending for the CL title.

with torres out, and then when they sold keane, they really lacked a goal threat up top. the games steve g was out also hurt them though. hes indespensible to the pool.


next year should be good in a couple leauges. i bet madrid spends big this summer. milans gonna reup and with the possible exit of ibra and the entrance of deigo to juve the seria a should be nice. england is bound to have a new champ. germany is always tight.

Apart from the 1st 10 minutes Barca jus dominated the game, their passing was brilliant ball movement it was all there. they deserved it. Man Utd jus crumbled after the first goal went in. It werent jus all Messi, Xavi and Iniesta jus destroyed Man Utd's midfielders. well deserved.

Too many places to start but im completly fucking angry at how shit went down. Fergie fucked alot up imo for the first time this season. Anderson should never of come off at half time.

It should clearly of been Giggs or Park for Berbatov. I thought 1st half was ok, but not great. I dont think they "dominated" at ALL for most of the 1st half. I also dont know whtf Giggs was taking a 20 yard free kick for ahead of Ronaldo.

Credit to Eto'o.

Fuck yeah! I was so happy to finally see Henry lift the Cup. Fuck United! Did they even show up? All you united fans can rationalize all you want be lets come down to reality. United did not show up, you were out classed, and asshole Ronaldo was the only player to threaten the goal. But that was only in the 1st 20 minutes. Then he started playing his usual flop and cry like a little bitch game. What a glorious night.

We're a better team than Barca when we're on it. We couldve powered through them. For whatever reason we couldnt perform last night. We shouldve battered them imo. But they work so hard to close you down and deny you space non of players could put things together. Carrick was always rushed. I re wathced the first half and it was clear to me that Anderson was one of our better perfromers, he was stopping them doing too much. As soon as he went off we opened the doors. Iniesta is a brilliant player, but Etoo in the end was the difference on the day. Vidic was crap for the goal but Etoo made it happen. Considering we gave away the 2nd half with our line up, they didnt really cause us that many problems. We had more shots.

Besiktas won the Turkish league today im proud to say, completes the double. first title in 6 years. first time ever in the Turkish league that neither Galatasaray and Fenerbahce finished in the top 3 i think. so its a glorious day. We need to build on this and not be gay and sack the manager if he loses the opening game next season. Turkeys version of Hoffeinheim Sivasspor ended up 2nd, meaning they gonna be in the champs league. which is great for them, its a sign that the league is finally getting competitive, instead of it being a 2 team shoot-out with a 3rd and 4th team showing their face every 10 years.

Nice that Sivasspor almost made it. What is the go with Turkish teams in CL qualifying next season, which leagues do they have to face? Isn't it some shit like teams have to face other teams based on the similar strengths of leagues?

messi for player of the year?

I don't know, it has to be Iniesta for me. Iniesta is just a fucking demon in the midfield and has been dominating for quite a while now. I would imagine it comes down to Xavi, Iniesta or Messi. Nobody else really deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as those two this season, but the powers that be will throw up Ronaldo and Lampard to make it seem less Barca orientated.

Ever wanted to know what Dirk Kuyt thinks of his teammates? Well wonder no more after the Dutchman revealed all about the Reds' squad in an exclusive chat with Match Magazine.



Who is the loudest in the squad?

I think that's Jamie Carragher! He's always shouting at people and telling them what to do on the pitch – it seems like you can hear him from everywhere. Sometimes he's so loud you just have to laugh about it.


Who has got the hardest shot?

When Riise was here it was definitely him, but now it must be Stevie Gerrard! Daniel Agger can really hit the ball hard and has scored some great goals for us, but I think Stevie just has more power.


Who is the best at FIFA 09?

Fernando Torres and Javier Mascherano play the FIFA games a lot on away trips, but I'm not sure who is the best! Hopefully they'll both let me get involved soon because I know I would be better than them!


Who's the cleverest?

Most people say footballers aren't very intelligent! It's hard to tell because we spend most of our time talking football, but I think Xabi Alonso is quite clever – at least he thinks he's clever anyway!


Who is the strongest?

The whole squad does weights a few times a week after training and Pepe Reina is the strongest. If there was a competition to see who could lift the most weights or do the most squats, Pepe would definitely win!


Who is your best mate?

I get on with all the lads, but I play golf with Pepe Reina and Albert Riera whenever I get the chance. Yossi Benayoun plays poker with us sometimes as well, so I probably spend the most time with them.


Who's the club DJ?

I don't want to big myself up but the lads always ask me to put my iPod on before games. It's probably because I'm the only one who has an iPod with me! I try to get a good mix of songs to keep everyone happy.


Who's the fastest?

We always do sprint tests at Liverpool so that's an easy one. We did the tests a couple of weeks ago and Ryan Babel was easily the fastest – even quicker than Fernando. I think he did athletics when he was younger.


Who is Mr Liverpool?

I think Carra knows everything – not only about Liverpool but about football in general. He eats and sleeps football and watches it every day, so he knows everything about the club. Steven Gerrard knows a lot about Liverpool too.

Naw, Barry will be a big loss, itd be a shame to see him go, we were so close to being a top 4 contender this seased, just faultered towards the end.

At least if he does go, i hope they charge as much as possible for him, so we can go strenghten our team. O' Neil is good at getting young players for relativly cheap and turing them into great players.

Don't know about Tranaldo, they apparently want to pay like 30m + Sneijder for Ribery and Van Gaal is apparently keen on trading Ribery for Sneijder and Van der Vaart which would probably entice Real more since Van der Vaart hardly played. Ribery also said he won't move to England which would pretty much confirm either Barca or Real.

---Swaziland's only stadium torn apart for lucky charms

LOBAMBA, Swaziland (AFP) – The artificial turf at Swaziland's only football stadium has been ripped apart by players who planted magic charms known as "muti" under the field, officials said on Monday.

Traditional rituals meant to help teams win their games saw the 600,000-dollar turf ripped up over the last month so the muti could be planted underneath, with the damage especially bad by the goals and at centrefield.

Government sports officer Sipho Magagula said the government might consider banning the team suspected of most of the damage at Somhlolo National Stadium on the outskirts of the capital Mbabane.

"This turf is hardly a year old," Magagula told AFP. "Maybe we have to consider banning one big team because whenever that team would be playing at the stadium something strange would happen at the stadium."

Sports Minister Hlobsile Ndlovu has filed a formal criminal complaint over the damage, according to local media. Police say they are investigating.

Madrid are funded by the Spanish government, thats how.

Its an open secret. They do certain things out in the open with hidden subsidies. Like when they sold their old training ground to the city of Madrid, they were overpaid for it by millions, which funded the Beckham and Zidane trnasfers. This was all during the Perez era, too.

But it goes way back to them being "Franco's club", and the club of Spanish Royal family. This is how it is, they get their money, dont worry about them ever going under.
