Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

In lower league news....the ever-wise FA have slapped a -30 point deduction on Luton Town.

Jesus Christ. The 15 point penalty on Leeds last year was bad enough, and now THIS happens to another club.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

A bit off topic, but here is as good as anywhere: played in a five a side tournament this weekend. Strange to start with, because in the States most small field games are 7 a side. The other thing of note was ex-footballer and movie "hard man" Vinnie Jones played on one of the opposing teams.

^ Awesome how good is he (Vinnie Jones) technically. I imagine professional footballers even at the Championship level are very good with dribbling, first touch, crossing, shooting, etc.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Tough to say how good he was really. Because it was clear he wasn't going all out. Whether that's due to his not wanting to show off, or maybe at 40-something he doesn't feel like it any more, he was content to spray the ball around to other players and control things from the back of the "diamond" formation. His first touch was good, however, and for a man that size he was deceptively light on his feet.

Milan announce they've signed a three year deal with Ronaldinho. I suspected there was no way City would land him.

And now it will be of interest to see which Ronaldinho they get. The night clubber or the footballer? My guess is the footballer.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Well it's finally official. I've following the move with interest for the last few weeks. The interest peaked earlier this morning when the first definitive words came out of Spain that Barca has agreed to the move. And then it was reported in the La Gazzette and that is when I went into the holyshit mode.

From the official site.



RONALDINHO: A.C.MILAN COMUNICATO UFFICIALE
15/07/2008

L'AC Milan e l'FC Barcelona hanno raggiunto un principio di accordo per il trasferimento di Ronaldinho alla Societą rossonera. Il calciatore sarą domani a Milano per sottoporsi alle visite mediche e per firmare il contratto che lo legherą al Milan fino al 30 Giugno 2011.
The deal runs to 2011. He'll be in Milan tomorrow for the medical checkup.

Looks like another Brazilian is on the move. Gilberto will apparently sign for Panathinaikos today.

Bizarre rumours suggest Arsenal will go in for Liverpool's Xabi Alonso as a replacement!

Hleb finally on his way too.

I think Arsenal should buy Ronaldinho.

I know, I wasn't being serious.

I wouldn't mind an equal number of big signings to significant losses. Nasri is a good start but someone more defensively minded would be good.

He can cheat, he'll just stand next to his mate Ronaldo. Next to him, Ronaldinho looks like Keira Knightley.

We have supposedly tied up a deal with Amaury Bischoff who is a currently unattached Portuguese (by way of France and Germany) defensive midfielder. He said he had agreed a deal with Arsenal a couple of weeks ago but nothing has happened about it since. We have our annual "Thanks for putting us up" friendly with Barnet on Saturday to kick off our pre-season so I would think Arsene would want him around.

Xabi Alonso's agent says that Arsenal have been in contact with Liverpool about his client. Liverpool surely can't want both Barry and Alonso so I'd imagine we would get Alonso which gives Liverpool a few quid (well, £14m or so) extra to get Barry in. Or, Martin O'Neill says Pat Rice rang him up to ask about Barry.

There's also the Adebayor and Arshavin situations.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Just been speaking to my house mate who is an Arsenal fan and he told me of a famous Arsenal bust up from ages ago (well a joke that got out of hand)...

Van Persie and Senderos had a exchange of words during training and Van Persie told his team-mate"At least am not Swiss" to which Senderos replied "I was in Holland the other week and saw your mum in a shop window"

(for that Senderos should get a new contract)

Apparantly Gilberto broke it up.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

So no one is interested all the major transfer soap operas that is happening this summer?

Robinho to Chelsea?
Kaka to Chelsea for 79 million pounds!?
Ronaldo to Madrid for 68 million pounds!?
Lampard to Inter?
Scolari and Chelsea. What do you think?
Mourinho and Inter. What do you think? Will they win the Champions league?
Adebayor to Barca?
Eto'o to the Uzebekistan league!?
Berbatov to United?
Spurs chairman Levy to sue Sir Alex Ferguson for tapping up Berbatov?
Where will Arshavin end up?
The Arsenal lost Hleb, Flamini and possibly will also lose Adebayor. Who else is Wenger looking to get as replacements?
