Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Allegedly Chelsea has offered 70 million euros to Real Madrid for Sergio Ramos.

I'll be rooting for Fulham to avoid relegation because of Bride, Dempsey, Bocanegra, Keller and Johnson.

To no one's great surprise Frank Rijkaard will leave Barcelona at the end of the season.

I wonder if this means they'll blow up the team. I heard that the locker room in Barca is very clique-y and doesn't particularly get along.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Barca shouldn't be blown up. They should get rid of players like Thuram (too old), Henry (homesick), Deco (no longer motivated) and Ronaldihno (so he can come here ). Zambrotta to Milan deal according to many papers in Italy is already done. Reportedly it's worth 8 million Euros.

Their core is still world class. Abidal, Puyol and Millito in the back are very solid. A central midfield consisted of Toure, Xavi and Iniesta would be envy of most teams. In the forward position you know about Messi and E'too.

Arrivederci Gattuso? Mediaset (Berlusconi's own outlet) has reported this sudden transfer news. Gattuso has agreed to a transfer to Bayern Munich worth about 15 to 20 million Euros (great deal if it's true). I didn't think a DM of his age can be worth this much.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Well, the off season rumor mill is already in full gear. Some rumors are silly, some a lock.

Talkinga bout Barca, Spurs appear to want Eto'o. I heard there was some question as to whether they can afford him. I would be surprised if he went to a club not playing ECL football. He also now linked with Arsenal.

Hleb's agent says the midfielder's move to Inter is near certain. This is madness. Arsenal could afford to lose Flamini. And it could afford to lose Hleb. In no universe can it afford to lose both. Both these players make Fabregas better, and I can't imagine he's at all happy.

Back to Barca for winner of the silliest rumor so far: Henry to ... America. Not just America, but the brand new team Seattle. Football aside, and that's a big aside, he was publicly moaning that Spain was top far from his daughter in London. Can't imagine the West Coast working.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

What english club would want Henry ??? he's nowhere near as good as before and to be honest mardy as well. Eto will probably end up at Arsenal if he comes to PL.

I still think Berbatov will end up at Utd so Spurs will need to buy a top class replacement though I can't believe he wants to get rid of Huddlestone who is a very good passer of the ball. I feel RAMOS will ruin the english culture and bring in player from aboard.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Well Keegan said he would want Henry. And Wenger said he would "never say never" to his return. I also imagine a few other clubs would gladly take a partly fit Henry. Exhibit A: Curbishley bought Freddie Ljungberg on his massive wages when anyone who watches football part time could tell you FL was never going to have a run of fitness again. But, it's all moot really; Henry has clearly said he would only come back to one club in England. My bet is he stays in Spain. If the new manager puts in a system which suits him, he may actually show some of the old Henry again. When fit.

Now I'm reading Adebayor is making wage demands at the club. Every single summer its the same thing. Never how will the team improve with key signings, but can Arsenal hold on to the key players it has. I've grown weary of it. This is a big summer. It's been three seasons since silverware. The youth system is working fine, but it time to buy some veterans and put experience in the team. I say bring in Micah Richards for some English steel in the back.

Senderos is off I'll bet. Djrourou and Hoyte aren't good enough. Wenger no longer plays Eboue at right back. So ... Arsenal have no real quality second choices at right back or central defense spots. Micah solves that problem. And 2nd choice Centre backs traditionally get long runs in the Arsenal side.

Does Micah want to be 2nd choice even if he gets played somtimes. Arsenal have been linked with Kompany today who would be a good choice and Ben Afra for the left wing.

^I won't try to second guess Arsene but I'd love to have Richards at Arsenal. That said, there was a story on the BBC Gossip Column about us going for Richard Dunne instead!

As for today, all I really have to say is Spurs ? Champions League ? You're havin' a laugh!

Anyone remember when that bunch of overpriced losers were supposed to knock us out of the top four ? Now they can't even finish in the top ten.

I mentioned way before this season started that the Spurs wouldn't displace Arsenal from the top 4. Their porous defense wasn't fixed over the last summer so it was pretty clear that they wouldn't challenge for that UEFA CL spot.


Anyways congratulation to McBride, the rest of the Americans and Fulham for staying up.

Congratulation to Manchester United for winning their 2nd Premiership in a row.

Congratulation to Ryan Giggs for winning his 9th title. A true British football legend.

Now Chelsea I hope you guys twat them Manc bastards in the Champions league final so I won't have to hear an endless stream of bragging from all the United fans in this school.

Congratulation to Roma for closing on Inter today in the Scudetto race. I hope you guys eclipsed them next week which would make my day even if Milan do miss out on the Champions league spot.
