Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Hey, it hurts, but at least that means we care, right? Great game, guys. You have nothing to be sorry for, you just made the Brazilians earn that one. Tim Howard is a great keeper! I think we were outshot 2-1 and still had a chance at the end of the game. The US isn't a pushover anymore.

The USA and South Africa both had very admirable tournaments - well done to both of them.

The Americans were never expected to win it. And keeping the likes of Spain and Brazil from getting a result over four halves a football was a little too much to ask. But a good showing. They're a better team coming out of the tournament than going in, so job done.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Germany won the U17, U19 and U21 EC.

This is the first time any country has won all three U?? titles. Congratulations to everyone involved.

I especially like the role Özil has played in this tournament. He's really a crucial player for "my team" Werder Bremen and I think he will be invaluable in the future.

I suppose I can look forward to the next couple of years of international football with confidence.

Everyone can take solace in the fact that 2009-2010 season officially starts today!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

The BBC have announced the first four of their 10 live Championship matches for this season - http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/foot..._1/8124105.stm
Cardiff, Derby, Forest, Ipswich, QPR, Newcastle and WBA are involved and the games will be watchable on the website too. Already an improvement on Sky's Championship services. Looking forward to this, and I have the Forest game down as one to try and get to this season as well.

The Real Madrid Galactico train just got another passenger. Apparently they just signed Benzema.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Reports say £30m for Benzema. £30m. I'm more astounded by that figure than what they paid for Kaka and Ronaldo. Absolutely absurd valuation he is NOT that good. Lyon should be laughing all the way to the same bank as Man United.

^Everyone's fees have been quadrupled due to the Kaka and Ronaldo deals. On top of that, people hear that Chelsea and Manchester City have a load of money to spend and Manchester United have got the Ronaldo fee burning a hole in their pockets, the prices go up further.

Yeah took me a bit by surprise as I hadn't realised the BBC were actually showing full games. I'd assumed it would be a Match of the Day highlight type show.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Ribery told a paper today he wants out and only to Madrid but looks that might be a problem since Madrid are refusing to pay such a high price of 50-60 million. They look set to pinch David Silva for half the Ribery price and some in the media are saying it would be a better move since he's a young Spanish international who would settle quicker and the fans would warm to him easier.

Looks like Fergie got some work to do and I still feel he maybe should look at another winger but strikers is the priorty of course. Welbeck or Macheda should be sent out on loan in the PL for week in week out experience since Fergie is selling the better potential player Campbell. That leaves Rooney and the should remain bench warmer Berbatov meaning he needs at least 1 striker and I will remain in my choice of Hunterlarr who would be sold for a price of no more than 20 million. Also Ruud is set to join Lyon from Madrid now a bargain goalscorer for the French giants.

City are taking the piss now - Chelsea reject offer for John Terry.

If there's one player in the entire world they can't get it's him.
