But thats the exact problem with modern football, you have about 3 or 4 teams who are miles above the rest, you can almost predict the finalists before the season starts.

2008 Manchester United vs Chelsea

Best 2 teams in Europe (Maybe Barca over Chelsea, but United were, indisputably the best team that year).

2009 Barcelona vs Manchester United

Absolutely no doubt these were the best teams in Europe that season.

2010 Inter Milan vs Bayern Munich

Bayern's manager even said United were the better team and they were lucky to beat them. Inter beat Barca because of Mourinho's tactics, imo.
The best two teams in Europe were Barcelona and (probably) Chelsea, but I'm willing to concede Inter Milan over Chelsea on this one.

2011 Manchester United vs Barcelona

The best two teams in Europe this season imo. If you can think of a team, apart from Barcelona, that United wouldn't have beaten over 2 legs this season, I'd like to hear it.

Accepting that I'm wrong about 2010, that means at least one of the best two teams in Europe has reached the European Cup Final every year for the past 4 years.
For all the shit that people talk about modern football being shit, that's a pretty good trend.


you make good points. some debatable but not wrong by any means.

the only one i would really differ on is man u if they had played real madrid in the semis i feel they would have lost. they are defiantly one of the top teams in europe, in a down year in my opinion as i already stated. i do think if they could have been beaten by other teams in a 2 legged affair had match ups been just right.

But thats the exact problem with modern football, you have about 3 or 4 teams who are miles above the rest, you can almost predict the finalists before the season starts.


true. it was nicer when teams were a bit more evenly matched. its so hard for teams to hold onto their good players these days. they get snapped up by the big boys. and they can't necessarily buy big players. they have to rely on getting lucky on a transfer, like cavani or buying them when they are young before they blow up like sanchez. or just raising them through the youth academy.

The two best teams in europe this year are Barca and Real Madrid.

imo, Real would have beat Man U.

Man U are playing steady football this season, but by no means look like a good team. The Premier League has been pretty awful this year, which is why Man U are on top (just about).

The standard of football has been pretty much up and down for most teams around the big leagues of Europe this year, apart from Barca, Real Madrid and Man U to a degree, although Man U are nothing spectacular and will be found out against a good team.

Barca and Real Madrid are clearly the best two teams, imo.

Milan have been good enough to win Serie A, but they didn't look completely dominant this season, they are still building for the future. Napoli have been good this year, which is good to see.

Man Utd basically champs now. well deserved.

such a damn shame that the Liverpool of today didnt appear that the beginning of the season. Suarez has been a damn good signing.

Real Madrid sign Nuri Sahin for only £10million. sweet deal Sahin is a great player on the same levels as Ozil. rumours are that Hamit Altintop will also sign for Madrid. so your gonna have this German-Turk Midfield trio at Real. lol.

anyway great game. the atmosphere was good, for like the first 10 minutes everyone thought that Man Utd could do it. but once Barca got going fucking hell they just played insane. did give United the ball and after the 2nd goal they just started taking the piss. there was nothing United could do, and you just felt that in the stadium.

- Wayne Rooney’s bald cure

Ace makes secret visit to hair clinic

http://mit.zenfs.com/210/2011/06/610x-1280.jpg


BALDY Wayne Rooney is having secret treatment to grow his hair back, The Sun can reveal. The Man United and England star, 25, was seen this week leaving a clinic off London's famous Harley Street, where hi-tech eight-hour sessions for VIP clients cost thousands.

A source said: "Wayne booked in for a two-day treatment. He'll look five years younger."

Rooney, suspended for today's international against Switzerland, had his head covered with a baseball cap AND a hoodie despite the heat as he left Queen Anne Street Medical Centre in Central London on Thursday.

He refused to comment as he made a hurried exit and climbed into a chauffeur-driven motor.

The centre is home to the Harley Street Hair Clinic.

The source added last night: "Wayne has been thinking about treatment for some time. He asked to meet a model who had the procedure and was so impressed he booked in for a two-day treatment. Doctors have told him to expect significant improvement."

The clinic boasts baldness cures including Follicular Unit Extraction.

This involves taking thousands of hair follicles from where they are plentiful, usually at the back of the head, and "planting" them in a bald area.

Patients may wear hats to hide tell-tale specks of blood. Rooney had previously tried pills and lotion.

Today the football ace took to Twitter to confirm to his fans he was delighted with the surgery.

He said: "Just to confirm to all my followers I have had a hair transplant. I was going bald at 25 why not. I'm delighted with the result.

"It's still a bit bruised and swollen when it dies down u will be first to see it. Anyone recommend any good hair gel. Haha.

"I had it done in Harley street hair clinic London. Thanks to all the staff who looked after me."

He also joked his followers should try and make the topic one of the most talked about on Twitter.

He added: "Hi all let's try and get #hairwego trending."

Wife Colleen also weighed in to say she too was happy with Wayne's choice - but denied she had suggested he went for the op.

She said: "Hiya!! Yes waynes had his hair done! His own decision not me asking him, like alot are saying!!

"Pleased for him and it will look great x"

Team mate Rio Ferdinand also tweeted his support, but warned him about adopting a silly hairstyle.

He said: "Just don't go down the wearing a alice band route!!

"You'll be doing head&shoulders adverts soon! Hope its gone ok Good luck lad."

--Iranian women’s soccer team forfeits 2012 qualifier over head scarves

The Iranian women's soccer team was in tears after being forced to forfeit a 2012 London Olympics qualifying match this past weekend because it showed up to play in hajibs. FIFA banned the Islamic head scarf in 2007, saying that it could cause choking injuries -- the same reason it gave for recently banning snoods (neck warmers). FIFA also has strict rules against any religious statements in team uniforms.

Since Iran refused to comply with these rules and didn't use the specially designed caps that its 2010 Youth Olympics team wore, Friday's match was abandoned by officials and a 3-0 win was awarded to Jordan as a result. The Football Federation of Iran said it will complain to FIFA about the ruling, but FIFA says assurances were made beforehand so that this situation would've been avoided. From the AP:

"Despite initial assurances that the Iranian delegation understood this, the players came out wearing the hijab, and the head and neck totally covered, which was an infringement of the laws of the game," FIFA said in a statement. [...]

Jordan team officials also objected to the hijab rule before the game, but prepared to play by declining to select women who objected on religious grounds.

"The Iranian team and three Jordanian players were also banned from playing because they wore the traditional head cover," Rana Husseini, head of Jordan's women's football committee, told The Associated Press.

"The problem is that the head cover assigned and approved by FIFA for women players to wear does not suit them as it reveals part of the neck and this is not allowed and it is not acceptable," she said.

Iran also forfeited a second group match against Vietnam on Sunday, seriously damaging its chances of advancing to the London Olympics. It seems unlikely that its federation's complaints will help its case, though, since these rules are not new and compromises have been made in the past. It's just a shame these women were put in the middle of this debate between Iran's federation and FIFA and set up for disappointment.

--Germans to hold oracle octopus competition during Women’s WC

It's been three months since Paul the octopus died and six months since he completed his fantastical run of perfection, eating the food out of boxes associated with the winning team in eight different World Cup matches. And now, instead of quietly fading into obscurity, the German aquarium where Paul lived is squeezing his famous tentacles for those last bits (namely: ashes and attention). When Paul died, the manager of the aquarium said that a permanent shrine "may seem a curious thing to do for a sea creature." But now, that curious thing is a reality.

On Thursday, the Sea Life aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany, unveiled a creepy yet fitting 6 1/2-foot tall monument of an oversized Paul the octopus limply crushing a large ball featuring the flags of all the 2010 World Cup nations' flags. I'm assuming this represents how for one summer, an octopus used the game to become overlord of the human world.

Inside the monument is a golden urn containing Paul's ashes. Yes, they cremated an octopus...

With Villas-Boas resigning from Porto and almost certainly going to Chelsea i expect them to start buying up players soon. maybe a couple porto players moving to Chelsea first, maybe guys like Moutihno or maybe even the Hulk. its like Mourihno all over again.

Barca are close to getting Sanchez, and said they will put in a final bid for Cesc. but they are still in huge debt and losing money dont know how they gonna afford both, they dont really need either of them.

Modric will stay, Tottenham aint selling. alot of teams want Rossi i can see him leaving Villareal.

Neymar i can see going to Chelsea they will offer him more money and at Chelsea his got a better chance to get into the first team. at Real Madrid the competition is to much plus i dont think they need him.

GhettoGnom
06-21-2011, 04:27 PM
^I wouldn't be so sure about Modric if I were you..

Man Utd are supposedly changing quite a handful of players, and I doubt they'll settle for anything less than big names (Jones is probably going to be a GREAT signing), there's a limit to how long you can win with a squad like their current. I mean, Alex is brilliant, his squad is just OK.

Why any promising player would want to go to Chelsea is beyond me, if you want to flop, it's easily your safest bet. Despite that, I can see Neymar signing with them though. Or maybe Lukaku. It'll be very interesting where those two will end up this summer.

Patiently waiting to see what King Kenny are going to pull out for the next season. Haven't seen Henderson play much, so can't really comment on him, but 20£ mill sounds way too much in my ears (hopefully he'll play better than Carroll have).. Hopefully we can get our hands on Gervinho, Cissokho and/or Zapata..

I dunno, we sacked our manager when we were 5th last season and appointed a club legend and finished mid table, pretty unwise move in hindsight, so if we get off to a slow start he'll be gone pretty sharpish. Making some good signings though so playoffs should be possible.

Turkish football rocked by a massive match fixing scandal. about fucking time, Fenerbahce's President, Vice-President and some footballers, chairmans of other teams and footballers all taken into custody. Fenerbahce is accused of fixing up to 5 games from last season. i aint fucking surprised those games were all dodgy, Fenerbahce finished the first half of the season 5th and were playing like shit. the second half of the season they win every game and become champs, they stomped over some teams with fucking ease.

they would play some teams and the best players on the opposing teams would refuse to play in games against Fenerbahce. next thing you know seasons over and those players move to Fenerbahce. this has happened twice.

not much is actually known about how much evidence the police have but this case started in secret 7 months ago and they apparently have loads of tapped phone calls where some players are offered money to either play crap against Fenerbahce or play good against Trabzonspor the team who was in the title hunt.

before there was a case made public that Emre Belezoglu sent txt messages to one player telling him to play crap against Fenerbahce and Emre would get the kid transferred to Fenerbahce. Emre says he was joking but thats dont mean shit now.

if justice is served Fenerbahce will get relegated just like Juventus.

Ironically italys final report on the calciopoli came out and they said inter milan and livorno should have been relegated in 06 and inter will lose the title they got from juve for 06 (which will remain vacant like the 05 one).

however bc italy has a 5 year statue of limitations nothing else can go down.

07-07-2011, 11:28 AM
its a huge scandal now, its reported that Fenerbahce fixed 10 of their games from the past season, in addition to paying money to teams to play better against their main rivals Trabzonspor. the Chairman hasnt been arrested yet but the vice-chairman and other board members have. by the looks of it Fenerbahce will get relegated and be striped of the title.

but theres more to come, its not just Fenerbahce they saying Trabzonspor and Bursaspor have also fixed the game they played between themselves. they both finished 2nd and 3rd. so theres a possibility that the team who finished 4th will get the title. Besiktas is reported to have asked a player not to play in the Cup Final and that they would sign him. the player played Besiktas won, but thats under investigation and we can get stripped of the cup. in the coming week they expect up to 60 players to be taken into custody. its a massive massive scandal.

Fenerbahce is expected to lose up to $100million and they have already lost 40% of their stock market value. the police said that 19 games had been fixed in the past 8 months in their investigations. just imagine what the hell has been going on in the past 10 years. everyone knew it our league was dirty but this much nobody had a clue.

07-13-2011, 07:26 PM
so far with the match fixing Fenerbahce's president has been arrested but the Federation says it will not do anything to them so far.

but it seems as Besiktas will almost certainly get dropped as players admitted to match fixing. our manager has been arrested today which is kinda shocking cause the guy just doesnt seem like the one who would do such things. vice-president arrested to. im so ashamed of Besiktas, 107 year history and we fuck it all up by trying to fix the cup final, a game we barely won on penalties. the 2 players that were involved on the other team were told not to play against besiktas in the final so after they would transfer to besiktas. both players played one scored and the other created a penalty. still attempting to fix a game is still breaking the law. Besiktas will most likely be stripped of the cup, kicked out of the Europe League and sent packing to the first division. i have no problem with any of that, we deserve to get dropped after all this. i was so hopeful of this season to, we signed some decent players and were building a really talented squad.

i just cant believe they would try to fix a game just to win a non-important cup. fucking ridiculous.

So what are peoples thoughts/opinions on PL kick-off and the new season?

Aguero delivered the best debut I've ever seen.. Got damn! If they keep Tevez, City is probably going to rival United for the title to the very end. I just hope LFC starts playing as a proper team and ends up in the top 3, we need that confidence boost if we're going to be a title rival the coming years. I think Enrique was a very important signing.

And Barton >>>
What a fucking hero!

Aguero is the best player City have bought so far. he makes Tevez expendable, City have a great squad if they can get it together they are one of the favourites. they have also taken the place as probably the most hated team in the premiership after Man U now. City were a nothing team until they got unlimited riches, i hope they crash and burn.

Liverpool played excellent for 45 minutes, then i don't know what happened. Its still early to see the team but I aint too hopeful of the season.

Yeah, but you have to consider that a large part of their squad was new signings.. Enrique came in the day before, in addition we had Adam, Henderson (why on earth Kenny started him in the first place, or paid 20 fucking mill for him, is way beyond me) & Downing. And in the pre-season we were pretty much terrible. With time, I have high hopes, I just hope we keep Meireles and that Henderson won't be a project Kenny is trying to pull off with giving him lots of playtime, cause he's just not good enough for a top 5 squad (yet).. Why we need XXXX centre midtfielders seems a bit strange as well. Alonso have said he could see himself playing for LFC again, so hopefully we'll trim it down to Meireles, Gerrard, Adam, maybe Lucas and then Alonso joining in as an extra addition for 12/13 (don't really see that happening though :( ). Shelvey & Spearing might be great in a couple of years as well.

Flanagan is also way too unexperienced, and he was pretty much responsible for the sunderland goal. Should've used Kelly instead, unexperienced, but better than Flanagan.. As long as Johnson is injured, our RB position is weak. At LB we have Enrique/Aurelio now, that should be sufficient.

so far i see 3 teams going for the title, Man U, Man city and Chelsea.
Sadly, I agree. But both Arsenal and LFC got the squad to compete as well, imho.. Gervinho should be a class signing, and if Wilshere, Ramsey & Walcott continues to grow better, they can easily come as a surprise with so many people writing them off atm.

1. Utd
2. City
3. Chelsea
4. LFC
5. Arsenal
6. Tottenham
7. Fulham or Everton

Barca just so efficient, Real again played better but Barca are just deadlier in front of goal. thing is Barca only playing at 70% right now, they only gonna get better.

on the PL i hope city take it. i fucking hate Man u. nothing but man u and arsenal fanboys over here. finally the arsenal ones are getting a dose of reality. if you do not want to buy good/expensive players there is no way you can compete. they are a selling club now.

they still need to buy a goalie, a center back (or two) a creative midfielder, an attacking midfielder, and another good forward. i dont see arsen getting more than 1 of those, and it will be either a center back or mid.

every year their D and goalie cost them points. every year Van P is great and gets hurt and they struggle in the final end. and then this year they lose their 2 best players, who also both happen to play in the middle of the park. they need to replace at least one of those guys.


chelsea just are a bit too past their prime imo. the spine of that team; terry, lamps, chech, drogba, have been at it for a decade. i think they may just be past it overall. and i dont have 100% confidence torres can get back to his old ways, he just doesnt look like the same player anymore.

liverpool look dangerous up top, but i dont think they have the quality in midfield. too many worker englishman, not enough class.

man u will be dangerous but once again i think they are a bunch of cunts and sir al is the biggest one of all.

man city should have it all this year. but i dont believe in mancini as a good coach. what has he ever done? get handed a powerful inter team when the serie A was in one of its darker times. now he has all these good players at city and they still play like shit at times. i like silva, think he might be the best player in the prem tbh. dzenko is underrated, onces he starts firing on all cylinders with kun at the same time, look out. they should sell tevez to inter imo. sure he would be a luxury to have but hes unhappy there and mancini will certainly run into selection problems, especially if nasri comes in.

tottenham need striker, adebayor would help but they just dont quite have enough quality to challenge for anything other than 4th imo.

^We'll see by the end of wednesday. I still got faith that they'll get it together and finish at #5 or #6.. They've had a tough start with good opposition and A LOT of injuries, suspensions and pressure. That'll end though, at least the injuries and suspensions (which you can claim is their own fault), and with a couple of good signings, they got more than a strong enough squad for a spot in the lower half of the top five. Gervinho is a top player, and can be just as (if not more) important as (than) Nasri has been. Van Persie is one of PL's most efficient attackers, the team is full of speed and they got great central midtfielders even if they're sorely lacking a leader type playmaker. They should look to Barca to see if they're willing to offload one of theirs. Sczseny (or however it's written) is also looking sharper and sharper, and is probably a better goalkeeper than De Gea is atm. Add another great stopper and a left back, and I think they could surprise a whole lot of football fans this season.

But yeah, they've started horribly, and without further improvements to the squad they can kiss a top 4 finish goodbye.

Madrid and Barca as always screaming through the spanish league, though Barca lost to Getafe. Real Madrid is a legit threat to win everything. the squad is deep, everyone is scoring goals they winning every game by 3+ goals.

whitey
11-28-2011, 06:51 PM
im loving city. hate united. always have. so its perfect for me being they are their direct rivals. plus its good to see a breakup of the good ol boys club. same couple clubs always winning..

milan barca game the other day was very entertaining. sucks we lost but shows we are close. really need a better left back and center midfielder to compete deep in the CL but we held barca to their lowest possession total and lowest number of passes completed of the year. (was still 59% and 84% respectively) but created many good chances ourselves.

be nice if we could bring in tevez to win the league. he would tear serie A up. if he comes in i feel they should play pato/binho up top with tevez and drop ibra to trequartista. he is a CRIMINALLY underatted passer of the ball, and would still be able to attack the goal. has awesome vision and great weight on his passes, one of the better passers of the ball (close to the goal) out of anyone in my opinion. then we could drop prince back into the mid with nocerino (who's been a great buy for 500k) and aqua (whos been slightly above average, but still young and can be good on his day).

11-30-2011, 06:52 PM
Ibra is a dope passer his technical skill are top notch, his goals against Chievo last week were pure class. Tevez would help big time, but he is also a risk cause his a dick.

Seria A for me seems like a 2 horse race both Milan and Juve seem to have it under control. I think Udinese will drop off from the race near the end of the season. I'm disappointed in Napoli, expected them to run for the title but they seem to be all but out of it already.

fair enough Zagreb are a shit team, they been hammered by everyone up to now in the CL but still, for Lyon to score a bunch of goals in that short space of time. and if you watch Zagreb aint even trying they just stand and watch the Lyon players run rings around them.

the Ajax game, they had 2 clean goals dissallowed. if i was an Ajax fan i would have had an heart attack yesterday.

all Barca did was pass the ball from left to right. then eventually after about 20 passes infront of Chelsea's penalty area they decided to thread the ball through Chelsea's 10 man defence. typical Barca football, they can be very annoying to watch. i think the whole idea that they play great football needs to be re-evaluated cause just passing it back and forth 20 times isnt exactly gonna win you games. Ofcourse no other team can out play them, but they can easily be beat with some good solid defence and counter attacking football.

hats off to Chelsea, the final is gonna be hard for them whoever they face as they have no defence now. no Terry, Ramires, Meireles, and Ivanovic.

i still watch their games (sopcast!) but i dont really care if i miss a game, or if i dont know the result.. or if they lose..
i see everton as my fave tv shows..(ie lost/heroes/fringe/dexteer)
its just entertainment..


why get worked up over it? i watch my fave shows due to the entertainment (no emotional attatchment) thats what ive fouind with everton and football in general..

you can enjoy it more, appreciate the skills/teams/players if your allegiance is un biased..

the main reason i gave up on sports teams is..

if they are succesful,, people want to be associated with teh success.. they have to buy tickets/posters/clothing/merchandise.. just to show to the world.. they have success.. but in reality its nit personal success.. as the supporter has done nothing at all,, for their team( they havent played any minutes/coached) all they have done
is throw money to show a sign of support.

people should be EVEN happier with their own lives, and their own success's, their own happiness that they physically create themselves..

not by 20 odd other men that you dont know, who dont care about you. lol

You make good points there bruv , but you have to speak on the other side too , think how many players were plucked of the streets of say brazil or argentina when they were young to sign for big clubs, lots and without football a lot of those kids would have little future on those same streets.


Yes its ruled by money but football still has great drama and incredible stories.

i was a bit jealous on dortmund...
they bought him for 300.000 euro...
its 243.045 GBP
and i think they get more than 10.000.000 Euro now... 8.101.530 GBP

he's 2 seasons in germany... he got a place in the first 11 amazingly fast..
no one thought that..
he's one of the best scorer in buli...
i think that u have fun with him...
he's small... fast... and has a great ballcontrole...
when i should compare his style of playing to anyone i would say that it's kind of messi... not that good... but his styles are kind of the same...

you can see it at 14 secs.

3 weeks later 2 teams play again and this was Zokora's reply. fucking epic reply.

Greatest final day in fuckin years in the English premier league. I still cannot believe City came back after it looked like all hope was gone and clinched the title after scoring two goals in injury time. The title was Citys at half time with both them and United winning, but into the second half QPR (against all adds as they are at the bottom of the table) managed to equalize against City, and then get in front.

The title was now Uniteds and City got more and more nervous and they could not score, i honestly thought it was all fuckin over and City had blown it, but then in the 91st minute they got an equalizer (still wasnt enough) and i couldnt fuckin believe ut when they got a winner.

-Beitar defy racist fans and sign two Muslim Chechen players


JERUSALEM, Jan 30 (Reuters) - Israeli Premier League side Beitar Jerusalem unveiled two Chechen Muslim players on Wednesday in defiance of calls by some of their fans who have protested against the club's recruitment of Muslims.

A racist element among Beitar's fans caused uproar in the Jewish state on Saturday when they held up banners during a Premier League match to protest at owner Arkady Gaydamak's plans to hire the two players.

Zaur Sadayev and Dzhabrail Kadiyev of Russian premier league side Terek Grozny were introduced at a news conference but barely spoke. They are due to train for the first time on Thursday.

"I know that there will be a difficult start, but I believe that this club is setting out on a new path and will change its image," coach Eli Cohen said.

Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat, who participated in the news conference said that "violence and racism would not be tolerated".

One large banner on Saturday read "Beitar will always remain pure" and another sign criticised Gaydamak's plan to recruit the two players.

The club were disciplined on Tuesday because of the incident and were ordered to close the Teddy Kollek Stadium's 7,000-seat eastern grandstand, where hard core supporters sit, for five matches. They also received a 50,000 shekels ($13,400) fine.

The Israel Football Association (IFA) court said the punishment was relatively mild because Beitar had begun to make an effort to stamp out racist behaviour among its fans.

Beitar are a bastion of Israel's political right wing and the only leading team in the country never to have signed an Arab player because of fan pressure.

They have the worst disciplinary record in Israel's Premier League. Since 2005, Beitar have faced more than 20 hearings and have received various punishments, including points deductions, fines and matches behind closed doors.

Arab citizens make up some 20 percent of Israel's population of almost eight million. Arab players feature prominently at all other clubs and have long been included in Israel's national team.

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/soccer-dirty-tackle/investigators-suspect-680-matches-fixed-worldwide-one-reportedly-223442142--sow.html

most of these games are in Turkey. court judges ruled that teams had fixed matches. Turkey's biggest clubs. the president of one club was in prison for a year before being released as the case has gone to the supreme court. its been six months and still no final decision. the evidence is hard, tapped phonecalls and players receiving money from club officials.

the federation has charged only 2 players with match fixing but no clubs. the official statement was 'there was match fixing but we didnt see any proof of match fixing during the games' they said this yet banned 2 players for 3 years.

UEFA has turned a blind eye to all this cause they are just as corrupt.

Maybe they didn't use him correctly or he didn't fit in the team or something. I dunno, never really watched him in Inter tbf, but they've missed out on a gem.

I have, however, watched him for the last 6 months, and he's easily the best buy Liverpool have done since Suarez. If he keeps progressing as he has done, even better. People were going crazy for Sterling in september, and Sterling can become great, but he doesn't hold a candle to Coutinho.

As for Sturridge, he's been great as well, but I fear he'll do a Cissé and stop scoring next season. Great speed, great shooting power, fits perfectly in the Liverpool team right now, but he seems like a very moody player. When he's frustrated his decisions on the field are horrible. But Rodgers seems like a guy who knows how to get the most out of players, so I still have some faith.

^Suarez isn't going to Arsenal. If he's sold, it'll be out of the country.
Can't comment on Rooney.

If Madrid sell CR and buys Bale, they'll come out a weaker team. I think Spurs will do what they can to hold on to him though, don't see them coming in the top 4 without him.

I think Wenger is to set up on getting Suarez. He should've realized by now that it won't happen though.

HANZO
08-11-2013, 05:54 PM
Well Arsenal haven't signed anyone, Suarez is the last guy left they could get. Arsenal fans demand a big money signing and if they don't and they flop this season as well then Wenger is finished. They have all that money they one of the top earning clubs in the world and yet they just cannot get the big names. I think they are tight with money, Wenger is and so is management. Also the transfer market is being swamped by Man City, PSG and Monaco at the moment. They signing all the good players from the mid level Euro clubs. There are only a very few players that Arsenal and other teams can sign.

However I doubt Suarez will go to Arsenal, Liverpool would be mad to do so. If he is going to leave its more likely he will go to Madrid.

To add 100million for Bale is fucking ridiculous.

In other news the inevitable has happened and Fifa has begun talking about a winter world cup in Qatar lol. How fucking stupid can the footballing world get? They didn't realise Qatar is fucking hot in the summer? bunch of corrupt sell outs.

Also the transfer market is being swamped by Man City, PSG and Monaco at the moment. They signing all the good players from the mid level Euro clubs. There are only a very few players that Arsenal and other teams can sign.

However I doubt Suarez will go to Arsenal, Liverpool would be mad to do so. If he is going to leave its more likely he will go to Madrid.

To add 100million for Bale is fucking ridiculous.

In other news the inevitable has happened and Fifa has begun talking about a winter world cup in Qatar lol. How fucking stupid can the footballing world get? They didn't realise Qatar is fucking hot in the summer? bunch of corrupt sell outs.

i know Arsenal has been snubbed a couple of times
like bernard going to shaktar donesk & i think Luis Gustavo

I feel bad for Arsenal in some ways because they sold alot of their good players like RVP, Fabregas, Nasri, Song, Gervinho...
their squad is still decent but it seems nobody wants to join Arsenal & Wenger has been holding out for suarez?!
funny how Wenger claims they can afford Rooney tho.

I see Rooney joining Chelsea at the very end of the transfer window.
I read somewhere that Suarez has to formally apologize to his team mates, the staff, and the fans for considering jumping ship!

and i agree about Real dropping 100 Euros on Bale !! The hack they trying to Prove?

I think Fifa will chose another destination for the World Cup
Fifa knew about the weather conditions in Quatar!! I dont know why they didnt choose Turkey (who have more of a footy history than Quatar)

Arsenal used to be my favorite team to watch in PL (behind LFC, ofc), but I agree, they just ain't what they used to be. I love the playing style of the likes of Wilshere, Ox & Walcott who inbetween them got all the speed & technique needed, and they got plenty of decent players, but to be top 4 you need at least 3-4 exeptional players. They can't keep on selling them.

BR has said so publicly, in addition Suarez is currently doing all his training away from the rest of the squad. Both BR & Henry have been clear that Suarez is not for sale. If Arsenal had done the same, they would have been in a completely different situation right now.

^ yep well said mate !

Arsenal isnt my favorite team but i do enjoy watching them play (same with Liverpool)
I hate to see them end up mid table or relegated
Arsenal really need to learn how to hang on to their players.
thing is alot of the fans want Wenger out but in the end who would they get as a replacement coach?

It will be an interesting season tho

who knows how Man United will do under Moyes & if RVP can stay healthy

Chelsea has a good coach in mourinho and can end up in the top 4 easy.
If they can get Rooney then I guess its safe to say they will end up
maybe even 1st or 2nd

Man City & Tottenham is in the air !
If Spurs sell Bale, it would depend who they get with that large sum of $$

i think maybe the 4th place battle would be between Spurs, Pool, & Gunners?!

cheers

The only reason Arsenal will always finish top 4 is because they have the best coach there is: Wenger. He makes players better and then the club has to sell them, because Arsenal is no longer the 'top' for them. Look at Robin van Persie, imo the greatest striker in the world. He was injured for years and Wenger kept his trust in him, he knew what he was capable of. Finally he had a whole season without injuries and he was scoring and delivering assists game after game. Instead of staying the Arsenal legend he was at that moment, he chose for the money (and with it ofcourse a big price). A huge blow to Arsenal fans. The reason Arsenal can no longer compete with the best in the PL is because they don't spend crazy money like Chelsea or Man City. How is it Tottenham Hotspur does not finish in the top 4 even though they keep buying new players and they have way, way more options than Arsenal? This year will be the same, even if Arsenal will not be buying new players. Gustavo is close to a transfer, hope to see him soon. I'd rather see Rooney than Suarez, but one of them would definitely be nice since Giroud is a blind horse and Podolski is too inconsistent.

Bale is extremely overrated. The guy can run and shoot. He will be the biggest flop in La Liga since technique is the biggest requirement in that competition.100 million, what a joke. If he really is the replacement for Ronaldo, I feel sorry for the management of Real Madrid. I think he will stay though, whether Bale comes or not.

Turkey couldn't even get the Euros. We tried for the 2016 tournament but lost to France. The best one was for the 2020 Euros. Turkey was the only country to bid but Platini said he wouldn't accept Turkey's bid because Istanbul is trying to get the 2020 Olympics as well, he said we cant host both tournaments. Reason why the 2020 Euro championship will be held in cities across Europe. To make up for not giving Turkey the Euros it was said that the semi-finals and finals for that tournament would be in Istanbul, but Platini denied it.

So we have absolute no chance of getting a World Cup, Somalia has a better chance lol. To add though I don't think Turkey deserves it, forget about the massive amounts of football corruption, if Turkey hosted a tournament the stadiums would be empty. Last month Turkey hosted the U-20 World Cup, the average attendance was less than 1500 even though the tickets were free. Turks only care for football when Galatasaray and Fenerbahce play each other, the state of football in the rest of the country is abysmal.

Im surprised Bayern are considering letting Gustavo go
if Gustavo does go to Arsenal hopefully he becomes the next
G.Silva
id be very surprised if Rooney ended up at Arsenal
I see him going to Chelsea.

speaking of strikers.. Chelsea picked up Eto'o ??

Arsenal is a good team and they develop their players, but
sadly $$ wins over loyalty these days!

i think Real might include 2 players and cash that would equal the 100 euro for Bale!!


as for Quatar, ive been hearing UK might be a back up for the WC
a winter WC would really throw off the scheduling for club footy.

I really thought Turkey would be able to pull it off
I think maybe Morocco or Tunisia which is closer to Europe and have a good footy history
but they are considered African ?

I think Bale can do good wherever really, just not 100 million-good. But Tottenham will be a force to count with if they hold on to him, and no matter how good Wenger is, he needs reinforcements. They will always be a top-4 threat no matter what though..

Right now, I'd say Chelsea and City are the two teams that stand out. United got the winning mentality in their squad, but individually I don't know if they're good enough, especially at midfield. With Ferguson gone, I see them pretty much equally to Spurs, Arsenal and Liverpool assuming they got at least a somehow decent replacement for Downing (ie: not worse than SD). I might even go so far as to say that Tottenham is perhaps the better of them.

Still plenty of time for players to come and go though..

^ i agreee on Chelsea and City standing out
Man Utd & Moyes will really have to show and prove themselves
If somehow Spurs keep bale i see them besting Pool and the Gunners.

dunno whats up with bale? i think R.Madrid are still negotiating or something?
wonder if FIFA will really enforce that club expenditure rule

im surprised Arsenal arn't jumping on that Anzhi exodus
Etoo,Traore, Lass Diarra and Willan?

Etoo is rumored to go to chelsea
Wilian has said Liverpool shown interest & bid ?

2 weeks left before the window closes
i think the last 2 days there will be some serious movements!

suarez as well..... if he decides to show up & play.

^Hendo showed his importance yesterday. Never stops running. Having a keeper like Mignolet and the defence that we've now built can also prove to be essential.

Well Bale finally at Madrid for 100million Euros. I think its fucking ridiculous, Madrid are just insane.

Ozil to Arsenal huge signing Madrid are nuts to let him go.

Real Madrid are just plain fucking stupid. How the people in Spain let them get away with such spending when its well known the government give them handouts.

09-02-2013, 11:39 PM
I have to admit ozil to arsenal was a shock!
if anything i thought man Utd would get Ozil.
Madrid need the cash so they are just giving players away to pay off Bale.

Fellaini to utd

and im happy to see kaka back at milan !
i hope he shines there !

surprised Kagawa didnt go back to BvB.
i know he hasnt seen first team action and is frustrated.

Özil easily the signing of the summer, but Arsenal is still weak defensively.

Surprised by Chelsea, Eto inn and Lukaku out is not a good deal.

Manchester City is favorites for the title to me, then it's up to United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea & Spurs to battle it out for the next three spots. A lot of business will probably be done in january as well.


Is that Flavor Flav?

Haha, that's Mamadou Sakho.

after a couple of players gave arsenal the could shoulder. Next window hopefully wenger

We will have to see what Eto can bring to Chelsea.

Liverpool is one to watch, they are coming back like a hungry wounded dog.
They are shaping up to be top contenders.
