My parents are turkish i was born and raised in england, but i aint english.

Larsson scored 30 goals per season at celtic how many has he scored at barca???? aint sayin larssons a bad player it still takes a lot to score all them goals. Am asking you have you seen anelka play lately??? the man is a shambles a player who barely runs after the ball the only time he gets on the ball is when it is placed at his graceful feet. His just their for the money, its clearly seen the man aint up to play football. If a team pays that much money for a player who has such a name you would expect him to atleast score 15 goals, the man cant even do 10 in a fuked up league. The team he plays for score an average of 2 goals per game anelka has no part in any of them .

good for you man, but Zidane was born and raised in France, and is French. that has been French history for centuries, it's a melting pot. believe it or not, it's like that. we don't judge people on their roots or colour. at least, it's not a basis to get people out of the French national team.

as for Anelka... yeah, he played for France lately, and pretty well compared to other players. truth is he changed position and assists more than he scores now, i don't see what 's wrong with that. i still prefer seeing Anelka with the French shirt than seeing Cissé in it.

Ribery was sik in turkey the man is a real star, when i first saw him i thought he was like a 30 year old player, i saw him play the guy was ill good ball control and very aware of whats going on around him. Good that he left turkey cause he was playin for galatasaray, they have a rep of destroying good young players.

wtf

they play the most attractive football out of them teams.
villareal play similar to how arsenal play.

barca.,. are over rated.. they got the best youngster in the world (messi)
and the biggest diver in the world ronaldinho.. ive seen the man dive after pushing the ball between players then just falling over b4 he even gets past them.. mans a joker.

AC milan.. hmm. i dont think they have it defensivly to cope against the arsenal or villareal attack..

did anyone see villareal 0wnz the fuck outa inter?
riquelme is good..but no where 2nd place in the world
messi has had an amazing season.. he made barca this year..
not ronaldinho ( see how they struggled after messi got injured.)
i would say henry has been better than mr brazilian diver also.
riquelme is class.. but aimar and messi have played better than him this season..

oh and i support villareal and valencia.. i been watching them tight like the last 7 years..riquelme is a big fish in a small pond..
barca never used him to how he could be used..
plus 2 months after they bought roman.. they boughT ronaldinho

as much as i like the way arsenal play, i dont think they have enough class to take down milan or barca.

henry is the top striker in the world, but milan probably have number 2, and barca number 3.

not to mention so many other greats, superpippo is playing just that. messi is way better than cesc for both being so younge.

ronaldinho is the best thing out of brazil since pele and kaka is no slouch.

yes milan are a little aged in the back but it doesnt make them bums by any stretch of the imagination.

i would be as shocked as last year if arsenal win, and that would be very shocked. but if they do it playing lovely football, like they like to do, i wont mind as much.

Giuly's finish was good, if the score stays like this you can't really look past an Arsenal and Barca final, which is what the neutral, like myself wants so badly. Possibly the two most attractive sides in Europe going one on one. Ronaldinho, Fabregas, Reyes, Deco, Eto'o, Henry....oh my.

What do people want to happen to their club for next season? Because mostly everything has been decided, or near enough, most clubs know where they will be next season. New managerial appointments? Certain players need shipped out? Certain players you'd love to see brought in?

Well it'll be a near era for us, in more ways than one. For the first time in over 10 years, our main striker and goal threat will not be Alan Shearer, and we'll also have a new manager(a lot of arrivals and departures will depend a lot on the identity of this new manager). So it will be about adjusting, developing the younger players(Taylor, Ramage, N'Zogbia in particular) and building a squad and keeping them fit so to challenge at the very least Spurs, Liverpool and Arsenal.

Thoughts?

Thoughts?

Being an AC Milan fan no doubt we have to pick up atleast 2 maybe even 3 or 4 quality defenders. Stam leaving, Maldeini retirering, Cafu old, Corstacourta old as balls, theres no way around it. Nesta, although i dont like the way he plays, gets the job done and has got some years left in him. And Kaldaze is playing well so hes good for it.

Possibly pick up one good midfeilder with rui costa being old, and ambrosini climbing in age. Vogel and some of the others on the bench dont seem to be getting it done.

Up top possibly a decent backup. sheva, superpippo, and gilardino are all quality, but you never know with an injury or something how that may go. Ive heard possibliy getting Crespo and 60 million from chelsea for sheva, i dont know how true that is and i doubt it would happen, but it would definatly free up some loot to bring in some other players.

Lastly depending on how dida does at the world cup, possibly its time for a new goalie. It seemed like only 2 years ago people were calling him one of the best in the world, no hes looking shaky at times. Hopefully it has just been a momentary lapse in form.

what i want Liverpool to have next season is to have Strikers that will be consistent in scoring goals, keep Fowler, get rid of Morientes

with superpippo playing in the second leg, anything can happen. i can see a 2-1 in favor of milan, sending them through, being possible.


liverpool would be my second club if i had to pick (odd being what happend in last years CL final and all). i think they should keep fowler and crouch (people hate on him, but i like the beanstalk), sell morientes while hes still worth something. and either convert cisse to a right mid, or sell him. fornando torres would be a sick buy, benitiez would be all about it too.

Wed 19 Apr, 4:22 PM

The 17-year-old will now undergo a medical at Goodison Park and will complete a dream move to the Premiership subject to agreeing personal terms. Spencer has not featured for the first team at Boundary Park, but has scored regularly for the Latics youth team this season and has attracted plenty of other interest from the Premiership.

Bolton (http://uk.sports.yahoo.com/fo/bolton/) had been monitoring the 6ft forward's progress and had one offer turned down earlier in the season.


Toffees may move for Oldham starlet

Wed 19 Apr, 2:07 PM


The 17-year-old striker, who has played just a handful of games for the Latics reserves, only needs to agree personal terms for the transfer to go through this week. Spencer is rated among the hottest prospects in English football and has been tracked by Everton (http://uk.sports.yahoo.com/fo/everton/index.html) for most of the season. Athletic have turned down a number of offers, but they will now make one of their biggest sales for many years.

It is understood Everton (http://uk.sports.yahoo.com/fo/everton/index.html) will make a down payment of around £200,000 although the fee could rise significantly based on Spencer's progress and the League One promotion hopefuls have also insisted on a sell-on clause if Spencer leaves Goodison Park.

yeah arsenal had more chances, but they didnt test the villareal keeper too much. villareal had some long range freekicks with riquelme but they were straight at the keeper. it was a midfield battle villareal were effective in the first half but they settled for 1-0 in the second. i think they are confident that they can beat arsenal in the second leg. not a good game, but both teams were about the same arsenal jus got the goal. although villareal should have had a penalty, ref was a bit on the arsenal side.

exactly
also all social role of football
what it represents for so many people
how people live it
...

no, football is not so entertainement
it is a unique sport
look at the happiness in angola, togo, costa rica,... when they reached their qualification !!! this is not just an entertainement, it's everything, because they do not have nothing...

so i don't blaim hate in football, for me it is something logical and even important for this sport...

yeah i get down when everton/argentina loose, but then 5 secs later
im like so what?

i love everton, but that doesnt mean., id be on a downer if they lost.
their so much more important shit to get worked up over,
like freedoms being eroded, the rich raping the poor. etc

i love playin and watching footy,, the only thingh i watch on tv is footy
but i see it for what it is,
a nice distraction to get u away from the real world. or would u rather watch ur team play, then find out what really happened on 9/11?

aint no team ever winning a world cup
gonna stop a war. or a famine or a rape of a country..
their is a reason why, sports are so popular with people (itsl ike a religion) thus people are easier to control, when they take it, for more than fun.
course the people in tonga/angola costa rica, where happy they won,
but do u think they would treade all that away, for actual freedom., or by letting their country be run by their own powers and not outside interferance?

oh and well done to liverpool,
they playedwell,, aint no team created that many chances v chelski for sometime.

Moct - who do u think will win.. barca or ac?
who do u want them to play arse or villareal?
and why

i understand what your saying, but no one person is really gonna ever change that.

you need many many people, over a very long period of time. so long that who ever started it and the people who put in so much work would probably never the see end conclusions. which is why i think so many people are content with how things are. theyd rather live in a semi fucked up place, than try and do something about it and really inconvienince themselves so that a generation or 2 or 3 or however long it took could see the effects.


but back the the main topic of the thread...

juve tied again, milan is only 3 points back now with 3 games left, i think anything can happen now.

the 78 world cup, won by argentina, is very suspicious (especially the game peru-argentina)... the main theory was that the military who had the power at these times (with many violation of human rights) paid because they knew an argentina's victory in the world cup who save them and calm down people's revendications... see, sometimes it is not only sport...

Moct - who do u think will win.. barca or ac?
who do u want them to play arse or villareal?
and why

well, let's get back to the subject
i see barca win, really best team in europe presently
huge attack (but sad they've lost messi), when you see what they have as substitutes, it's amazing : guily, larson,...
best team and also best substitutes, that's why they are so strong
and defense is ok too, puyol is a great player

then i see a victory of villareal (and i hope... maybe i am not objective)
they're really good, players that were rejected from big teams or not given their chance, but still have their talent and show it in villareal
the main doubt is riquelme, everything depends on his level
if he plays well, team's amazing
if he's not in a good day (like on the first game), impossible to win against arsenal...

for christ sake, the last rounds in the danish SAS liga is gonna kill me.. FCK is leading by 6 points, Brøndby (our arch rivals) are number two. There are 4 matches left, and our program is this:

FCK - Brøndby (Home)
Viborg (The 4th best team in the league) - FCK (out)
OB (the 3rd best team in the league) - FCK (out)
FCK - Silkeborg (not really a good team, but they are well-known for their surprises, they fx won 2-0 against Brøndby) (home)

It's really a tuff program, and especially the match against brøndby is going to be vital. They are weakened by injures, but we are hard weakened by quarantines (is that how it's spelled?), our best player, former Everton player Tobias Linderoth, are out.. It's going to be very close.. Damn, I can't stand if BIF wins this season, they also won last year.. But on the other hand, if we win, it's gonna be the best season in years..

We are known to be the loudest fans in the world, the stadium once reached 138 decibels. all this support and the players still complain if these fans supported any other team they would lift the champions league.

opinions like that can end up as someone's sig and haunt you forever, lol.

on the subject of the English league's player of the year awards, I don't think Gerrard should have won it.
Henry, Lampard and Rooney were all more of an influence and inspiration for their teams this season.
It's a shame for Rooney that they are unlikely to give both awards to the same player any more, cause I reckon either him or Henry should have got the main award.
I think the last player to win both awards in one season was Andy Gray, back in the 80s.

Hopefully Arsenal will win this but i don't have nothing to Barca either. Actually Barca is my second favourite FC after Arsenal. But Arsenal haven't been that succesful in CL for so many years and now they're in the final - for the first time. I feel really happy for them.
And yes, i agree that Arsenal was very weak in last game with Villareal but i'm 100% sure the final will not be like this. If they have to play rough, they will do it. The game is held in Paris so Henry should feel very good there too.

english teams perform well in european club competations coz they still play it like an english premier league match

england f.c should play like a premier league team,
then they might do sumthing in the world cup or the european championships but until then,
the way they try to play.english players do nothave the tecnhique or the cultured ability to play like a portugal or a spain or even a belarus
they play some wicked football, really creative shit

england should just play 4-4-2 and attack with pace.

^^ Hahaha, why not eh?

To be fair, every nation has their star man. Rooney is unfortunately England's. I can still see them taking him. It'd be like Luis Pereirra (unless i'm mistaken) not taking Ronaldinho because he won't be fit for the group games. 6 weeks is all Wayne needs, the lad's only 20 as well, he'll make the cut. I expect to see him play perhaps in the second half of the third fixture to show the opposition that he's still sharp. I remember when he made his debut for Man Utd; 11 weeks out, no reserve team outing or anything, and he banged in a hat-trick against Fenerbache.
Enalgnd will be ok regardless though, the midfield is as good as it's ever going to be, even the left side problem is seemingly erradicated thanks to Joe Cole. The forward problem may have some bearing, with Owen having very little match time before the world cup and Defoe not developing as he should (he needs to leave Spurs ideally). Darren Bent might pull a few suprises out of the hat though, he's a good lad. Incredible first season with Charlton and an impressive goal tally with the U-21s, I got a feeling about the guy.

all the other england strikers apart from rooney and owen aint good enough to play on the world stage the style of football is different, we still dont know how rooney will cope with south american and stronger european teams. Owen is the only proven striker. international football is different reason why 20+ goalscoring darren bent wouldnt do well, james beattie flopped since he moved to everton. I say bring back shearer to replace rooney, if he doesnt accept teddy sheringham is always available.

I see where you're coming from. But I got faith in Bent, I must say. Little international experience shouldn't really matter, given that young players can normally bypass U-21 duty and get straight into the full team (Messi, Owen and Rooney spring to mind) and normally do ok. Crouch's role in the side has just taken on greater significance with the loss of Rooney, the lanky targetman will come in handy when Gerrard, Beckham and Cole swing in the ball.

shaun wright phillips wont play beckham is way passed his best, the problem with lampard and gerrard is when they play together they both play bad, cause they similar players. England always play better when one is not playing. thats englands main problem also ashley cole wouldnt be ready to play such matched, and terry and carragher should be the defenders, i have no trust in rio ferdinand, and sol campbell is just not fully fit.

FCK is so close at winning the gold in the danish league this year. Two matches left, and six points ahead of our rival Brøndby. Although the matches that FCK is going to play is against much better teams than the ones that Brøndby is playing against, it seems like the gold is returning home to Copenhagen this year. Two weeks ago we had "the gold-match", the match between FCK and Brøndby at FCK's stadium Parken. The match ended 0-0, but FCK ruled the game, and had many great chances. Fx canadian Atiba Hutchinson which shot hit the crossbar. But FCK's fanclub had made a amazing tifo for that match, peep it;

Not totally related to the thread I know, but I've just had a match for my Sunday league team. I was playing left back and marking a right winger, who I'll now try to describe to you all;

http://www.wldcup.com/pictures/euro2004/56682.jpg

A bit like that, because he was bald and a right winger, but that is where the similarities end. He had the aggresion of Vinnie Jones, and had an eye patch over one eye, and had a very, very evil face, oh and judging by the size of him, he was either on steroids or worked very, very hard in the gym.

I've got scratches and marks all over my legs(and even my face:dead: ) from all the kicks and nudges he was giving me, it was truly a nightmare. We won 6-4, but my personal battle with this guy 'Butch' as his team mates called him, was tough to say the least....lol.

Has anyone else had any experiences playing for a team like this?

luca toni scored his 29th and 30th league goals today, i find that pretty impressive. im patiently waiting to see how he will fare in the world cup against world class defenders.

its about the turkish league which at the moment is going into its last week, the 2 top teams are on 80 points each, but today the focus was passed onto the teams fighting for relegation. A senior member of parliament leader of the main opposition party in turkey has started a bill backed by many members of parliament not to allow diyarbakirspor a team who has been relegated already and samsumspor a team most likely to get relegated this week to get relegated. Yes thats right they dont want these two teams to get relegated, the reason being diyarbakirspor being a team from the kurdish east of the country, keeping them in the first division would assist with peace talks. The other team because the city that team is from started the war on independence. To me this is the biggest bunch of crap i have heard from a politician. It is going ahead, i mean diyarbakirspor coming up to the first league was a political move in the first place.

On today's weekly Luca Toni report: Another goal today, leaves him with 31 for the year. Highest total in like 50 years in serie A. No doubt winning europes golden boot and deservadly so.


Pascal Chimbonda and Franck Ribery have been named to the french squad. Chimbonda is pretty decent, but ive not even heard of Ribery. Mainly because i dont pay attention to the french leauge besides lyon. People say hes the next Zidane, anyone who watches a lot of french soccer know his deal?

Frontal Lobotomy
05-14-2006, 07:32 PM
Ribery's a good lad, another young, quick skillful winger. There's a lot of talk of him moving in the summer; with the likes of Arsenal, Lyon and Real Madrid having sent scouts to see him in the past (Lyon less so, seeing as they're in the same league). Personally, I think he's alright. Should he have got in the squad ahead of Giuly? Definately not.
Chimbonda though, fair play. I mean, he's a decent full back, with at least one good half of football in him. He's an asshole for shafting Wigan though, apparently Bastia (was it Bastia he came from? I forget) told Wigan he'd do that shit to them as well haha.
Juventus going to Serie B? I'd say they're too big for it, but Milan and Lazio were relegated under similar circumstances back in 1980 so it's anyone's guess what'll happen next. It doesn't bode well for them though, Moggi was a highly influencial figure for them for quite some time. Should they go down? Vieira to Man Utd, I knew there was a reason Fergie has been ousting Van Nistelrooy lately (Vieira hates Ruud with a passion, for those who didn't know). A highly unlikely possibility, but it would be nice.

Ribéry can't be the next Zidane for a simple reason : Zidane is unique, and Ribéry's style is clearly not the same. He's kinda efficient, a real fighter, he should play in Premier League. But i prefer watching Zidane playing, it's really beautiful.

u guys seen the new fifa world rankings. brazil top it but the eye catching ones are mexico who are 4th and the USA who are 5th. Ahead of spain argentina, portugal england italy and the rest. Now FIFA has lost it Mexico and USA wont stand a chance against the european sides why are they ranked so high. Very generous.

Arsenal - Barcalona tonight. Barca to win 2-0


FIFA rank doesn't mean shit



i take barca today 4-2

Id love such a score !!!

Just a question to Whitey ... is it just an impression or football has become a little bit more popular in the US compared to 10 years ago ?

I have an American friend in Shanghai... the guy didn't give a shit about football before he got here. He was all about US football, baseball and basket ball.

Now he's crazy about football, and can't stop playing... I think events like the World Cup help. And players like Ronaldinho spread the beauty of the game.

yea its definatly getting bigger here. i live in a city (rochester ny) where soccer/football is bigger than most parts of the country.

but defiantly the champions leauge and players like ronnie are helping in that department.

2-1 not bad, half of what i said the score would be. that redcard should have been a delayed yellow with a playon and a barca goal. i think the game would have been much better if it was a full 90 11-11. arsenal were dominating before that redcard.

sad for pires. everytime they showed him he just looked like he had his heart ripped out.

i thought freddy lun showed a lot of pace on a couple runs just blew by some people, didnt know he still had it.

overall good game though.

I enjoyed that. Lost money. Its ok tho as ARSENAL CANT WIN IT.. TOTTENHAM WILL WIN IT BEFORE YOU DO. :fucku: HENRY WILL LEAVE.

but yeah i had ronaldinho and toure first goal.

i was going to back barca to come back on betfair.com when they were one down, they scored while i was hesitating though, fucked up the odds.

i must say the ref was really bad, the goal should have stood, but you cant blame him for the red card its a no brainer you gotta give, but if barca didnt score then he should of given it but barca did score, meaning that the keeper didnt obstruct a goalscoring oppurtunity. so the goal should of stand and keeper a yellow for caution. but i must say arsenal were good for 5 minuted but you saw barca get into the game before the red card. Not a great final but at the end of the day barca was the team that everyone enjoyed watching they play excellent football and deserved it.
Henry was a bit angry at the end of the game, i mean saying ronaldihno and eto'o didnt do anything is words of anger, ronnie showed moments of quick feet and clever passes eto'o for most of the game out paced eboue which isnt the easiest thing to do. barca played well and deserved it at the end of the day. I see this barca team winning more in the future.

well club football is over, world cup in a couple of weeks. man shame turkey aint in it, your team not being there does take a lot out. but its the world cup and theres always brazil or argentina to support.

Heh, looks like that linesman wasn't the only Norwegian official with just a Barcelona shirt in their wardrobe. Ah well, 10man Arsenal were the better team for a good 70minutes, still once you equalise in a final, you get that extra bit of belief and it's normally easier for that side to bang another in. One thiing keeps me wondering though. How the hell did Almunia manage to get beat on his near post twice? Deary me

henry said he didnt see ronaldinho and eto'o in the final,i saw henry though, miss 2 oppurtunities to score,i saw eto'o have a magnificat first touch and strike deflected to the post by almunia,he scored a goal,almost scored a goal when lehmann was sent off,and ronaldinho,not his best performance,but his presence was felt,henry didnt do too much,honestly,i was disappointed in andry gray commentary was so biased, you cannot take away what barcelona have achieved, 1-0 in a final with 15 minutes to go, not breaking a 10 man defence against a team who havent conceeded in what, 900odd minutes, that has to play on your mind like 'what have we to do to get a goal' and yes refereeing destroyed this game, i didnt see if eto'o was offside for the red card or for the first goal, but, lehmann fouled yes should of been sent off, but how is the ref not going to call advantage? so many times yellow cards were givin when players got the ball, henry comes to mind, i think oleguer but not sure, some one from barcrelona, i wonder about henry going to barcelona though, he made some razor blade comments, especially marquez and puyol, i think this might be a bit of 'unfinished business',i think if arsenal win, henry goes, but i dont think henry can fit in barcelona's style either, could eto' and henry work together? could ronaldinho and henry work together?i dont think barca need henry, theyve won back to back la liga titles, theyve won the champions league, beating very strong opponents on the way, they dont need henry, they have a fantastic quartet in eto'o, ronaldinho, deco and giuly,

as for fifa world rankings, they have lost the plot, please explain the USA being ranked 5th?i think this a generous hand push to bump the status of football in the USA, as it would be the ultimate market for fifa to crack, like it or not, mexico are a good team, they will surprise alot of people at the world cup. are they worthy of 4th place?im not sure, but def top 10 no doubt, USA should be nowhere near the 5th place,i also see the USA play alot of games in their own yard, meaning when european teams go there, they dont send full strength team because no clubs want their stars flying to USA for a nothing match to get hurt, they rather them rest up for league/european matches, i remember landon donovan was 'the next best thing' and scored millions of goals in MLS, he went to bayer leverkusen a few times and did nothing but whenever he goes back to MLS he scores millions of goals, he is very overated, somebody,what ranking is argentina if USA is ahead of them?? i am surprised, they have an extremely talented team i am surprised they are not inside top 5, but fifa rankings dont mean anything, i remember czech republic was ranked 2 in 1998 and didnt qualify for the cup--just my thoughts

FIFA need to sort their lives out. The USA being in the top 10 is a joke. They have one or two good players at best (Adu not included, he's vastly over rated) and get routinely hammered by european opposition whenever they play them. Mexico are always a good team, and deserve to be up there. The whole ranking system is biased anyway, the same as with South American footballers getting world footballer of the year, every other year

I say it was a good decision and Andy Gray is an idiot. he was saying just let him stay on and give them the goal or pen. But how the fuck can you do that, its not what happened, then what if barca missed a penalty and then arsenal won and it wasn't even meant to be a pen? That's how arsenal like to win, but the ref called that bit fair as he could..

Its Yens Lehman's fault. Should of been more careful. that's his problem. he should of been booked many more time in the league this year.

To be fair to the ref, he even said himself today that he wished he had a bit more time with Lehmann, as he probably would've given the goal and booked him. Obviously he's saying that now as everyone's been dissing him since, I'd have been happy to see Barca go one up and Arsenal keep 11-men, it might have been a better game that way. Ah well, only 365 days til next years final, that trophy on its way back to Old Trafford, boom!

eboue dived twice, he was all over the place. The game had a lot of dives but eboue's was the most bait. he fell like he had been shot, the bad thing about it was he had passed puyol and then he fell. atleast fall when your next to him.

Well, Fergie dropped him for the League Cup Final back in march, and hasn't had too many starts since. He drove away from Old Trafford prior to the final game of the season as he was dropped to the bench, and hasn't been back since. Fergie even banned him from playing in Roy Keane's testamonial, so whatever it's about it's pretty heavy. Apparently Ruud was also one of the big players to kick up a stink about Keane being released too, so no doubt Fergie has had the notion of selling him in his head for quite some time.

Shevchenko will sign for them, it's just a case of whether Milan get Gallas or Crespo in part exchange with whatever ridiculous amount of money they're given for him. I heard something about Ruud having a training ground bust up with Ronaldo, apparently he was like "run off to your dad (referring to Carlos Quieroz)" and Ronaldo's dad only died like 6 months ago. Way to put your foot in it eh?
As for Tevez, I'd be suprised to see him sign for Chelsea, as a virgin strike force just doesn't look very Jose Mourinho, he knows that he only needs one 20+ a season striker and his team are sorted, plus he likes Drogba a lot. Though if Drogba leaves, Tevez will sign. According to Corinthians, an English side has already made an enquiry for him, so it'll be interesting to find out what's the deal with that.

HANZO

it looks like tevez might go chelsea, but as for shevy, chelsea gonna have to give over 40million for him. thats not a problem for them but i think if shevchenko goes his reputation will be tarnished, the only reason he would leave milan for chelsea would be for money. even gallas now wants to leave chelsea and wants to go to milan.
