Lilian Thuram the last member of France's golden generation will likely hang up his boots in club football as he is diagnosed with the same heart condition which killed his brother on the basketball court a few years back.

I hope he won't suffer the same fate as his brother. Always respected the guy.

Chelsea news....

Chelsea have completed the signing of Barcelona playmaker Deco for a reported fee of £7.9million.
Lampard is currently in Milan securing his move, which should be done very soon. Overall I feel Chelsea will struggle in the PL wihtout Lampard and Deco may struggle to adpat due to his age.

^Goal.com are not reliable.

Jose Mourinho has played down suggestions that a deal has been agreed.

It appears, however, that one deal is done. Arsenal will sign Werder Bremen midfielder Amaury Bischoff on a Bosman.

Barcelona just bought Dani Alves from Sevilla for a whopping £23.5m.

Man City have posted on there website...

Manchester City have completed the signing of Brazilian striker Jo for an undisclosed fee from CSKA Moscow.
We know the fee is huge and it's a massive risk.

The guy did look good when I saw him playing against Arsenal in the Champions League, though I'd be stunned if nobody goes in for his CSKA teammate Daniel Carvalho.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I think its time to get this thread back on track with some transfer news...

Sky Sports paper talk...

Arsenal are ready to offer £18million for Ajax striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar, if Emmanuel Adebayor leaves.
Liverpool will include Steve Finnan in their next bid for Aston Villa captain Gareth Barry.
Everton will offer Blackburn £15million for David Bentley as they fear losing Mikel Arteta.
GOAL.com...

AC Milan V.P has confirmed that Chelsea have made a huge offer for Kaka
Atlético de Madrid have made bids for David Silva and Rafael Van der Vaart
Didier Drogba is one step closer to joining Inter Milan

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I'm getting really hacked off with Arsenal. What kind of message does it send to your squad and the fans when the manager admits that one of the world's most popular football clubs is now a selling club thanks to the stadium that they fill every week ?

Our match day income has doubled. Doubled. Yet we still can't pay off the debt so we have to sell players to cover it ?

We have the cheapest and smallest squad in the big four, we're in the Champions League and the Premier League. Where is all the money going ? How come Spurs can afford to make huge bids for players and we can't ?

I am absolutely furious about Arsene's comments yesterday.

^ Spurs making bigger bigs will soon catch up on them I feel, there rich but not that rich, however am sure there wage bill is smaller than yours. I do admit I feel this situation could eventually see Wenger leave but it could be worst you could be like Liverpool and have 2 rich owners but no actual money and thats before you build a new stadium.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Major news about the UEFA Cup...

It could soon be called the Uefa Europa League as football's bosses seek to give the competition fresh appeal.
European soccer's governing body Uefa is considering the name change as it seeks to reverse a feeling it has become 'a second class competition'.
Uefa's executive committee is set to vote on the name change when it meets in Bordeaux in September and will launch it for the 2009-2010 season
This new system is a direct copy of UEFA's more successful Champions League competition and will see the dropping of the unpopular five-team groups in which teams play each opponent just once either home or away in favour of a simpler home and away system.
Am not totally against the idea but I knew UEFA had fucked it cup after they changed it from the old knockout format that I loved watching in the 90's when I first got into football.

Can we have a better name than the one they choose, UEFA Cup sounds fine or UEFA League Cup.

If it was me, I would make it like the FA Cup. A straight, randomly drawn, single elimination cup. No seeding, no away goals rule, one leg per tie, winner takes all on the night.

No dumping teams eliminated from the Champions League in to the tournament, either.
