Congrats Argentina!!!im not coming back to this thread until i finish watching the game i recorded yesterday (arg vs nig), cause i just know their is a final score spoiler here somewhere, c ya'll in a bit
Sure, why notforzainter,
Do you want to be a member? It would be great to have an Inter supporter, as I originally envisaged this club's members as representing sides from the diverse leagues and best footballing countries in the world, and not just the Premier league.
Yeah, Fabregas is just so experienced and he's only 21!Word about Fabregas. Arsenal just can't cope without him. Nasri looked OK, but he's too inexperinced in the prem to carry Arsenal all by himself. I agree about Frings, he'd be great!
Another transfer update:
Andreiy Schevchenko to Milan.
Contract legnth: 2 years.
Argentina 1 : 0 Nigeriahehe,thanx :mrgreen:
Now it's the second leg against Sparta Prague on Tuesday for a ticket for the CL.
But I still find Olympic football to be incredibly boring imo.:/
I was listening in the car on the way back from Wigan and it sounded like Kompany had a great debut, i'm sure he'll do a good job if Richards is out for a length of time.City were immense today, great play throughout the game. The addition of Jo next week will only make everything better. However, Richards' injury looked pretty serious and without him out there the central defence gets much weaker. Corluka can cover that up for a while but he is obviously much better from the wing.
Overall good play and should be able to take another win next week against Sunderland.
I'll tell you what happened:my_forehand...Arsenal
Dunno what happened (didn't watch) so can someone please tell me what happened at Craven Cottage? How did they lose?
That's good news for arsenal, as he is really bad and have cost you so many points.Phillippe Senderos to Milan on a one year loan deal, and Milan has the option to buy him at the end of this season.
Well, baldness can definitely be a bit of a bummer. Then again...Yeah, its too bad about his complete baldness by age 28 or something, eh? It's happened very quickly for him
As a Spurs fan, all I can say is, PLEASE let this be true:!: ... and if we could have Arshavin also that might go some way to beginning to compensate for Keane and (probably) Berbatov's departure - although quite how good these 2 can be compared to who they are replacing remains to be seen. Quite why we've gone and dismantled and sold/are about to sell our very successful strike-force leaving us with virtually no-one but the unconvincing and highly expensive Bent - and I'd also add Rocha, Boeteng, Gilberto and a few more flops I've forgotten about since Camoli brought them in - is an incomprehensible mystery known only unto those who run the scene at White Heart Lane these days.BREAKING NEWS: Russian Striker Roman Pavlyuchenko will complete a move to Spurs, according to English and Russian media. The player himself confirmed this about 1 1/2 hours ago. Pending a work visa, he will be in the side to face Chelsea on Saturday.
I do, of course. I know you don't like Real Madrid or Spain, and I really don't care. But before you say something about RM's history get your facts right. I could understand you said RM was favoured by the spanish referees in la Liga, but how could the spanish government rig the European Champion Clubs' Cup is beyond my understanding.Do you love your club's history? :evil:
Alright, here's this morning's transfer updates.
~Goal.comSpain, the BBC and MARCA have all confirmed that Chelsea have made a take-it-or-leave it bid for Robinho valued at 37.3 Million Euros.
~AS reports that Real Madrid made a counter-bid for David Villa after Valencia rejected Real's initial bid of 37.1 Million Euros. Neither club would say what the second bid was valued at, but was immediately rejected.
~Tottenham Hotspur has made their signing of Russian Striker Roman Pavlyuchenko official. No word on wether he's due to play against Chelsea on Saturday, though.
~Word on the street (atleast among US-based footy sites) is that Middlesboro are seriously looking to sign holding midfielder Michael Bradley. Bradley was the second highest scorer in the Dutch League (I'm not even not even going to try to spell it's offical name, way too confusing!), despite playing a role deep into the defense.
~My english friend says he heard that Liverpool have lodged an official bid for Stuart Downing of Middlesboro. Not sure on the amount of money involved, but it's safe to say if he leaves, Bradley will indeed join.
~Want-away Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry looks set to stay with his current team, according to Goal.com The Liverpool target was offered a new contract, and is all set to stay.
That's all I could find this morning, if anyone hears ANYTHING please post it!
Di Stefano would've been a blaugrana had it not been for pressure placed on Barca by a certain someone.I do, of course. I know you don't like Real Madrid or Spain, and I really don't care. But before you say something about RM's history get your facts right. I could understand you said RM was favoured by the spanish referees in la Liga, but how could the spanish government rig the European Champion Clubs' Cup is beyond my understanding.
Edit: I just re-read my post and I have to precise that what I said is in response to some post from SempreSami from a while ago in which he said that RM only started to win things after the Civil War because it was Franco's team. That statement is not true so I'm going to correct it.
First of all, RM won la Liga in 1932 and 1933. Second of all RM didn't win any national championship after the civil war until 1953, which is the year Di Stefano arrived to the club. That mean that for 14 years after the Civil War RM didn't win a thing, while Barcelona won 5 titles. Then Di Stefano arrived and everything changed, RM won several leagues and 5 consecutive European's Cup.
After the Civil War Spain was poor. The goverment needed something to show the people they were doing ok. Once RM started to win the spanish governments started to make RM triumphs like if it were they own. I am obviously not in favour of a totalitariam regime like the one we had, but I don't think any of the RM fans should be embarrased of its history. RM started to be big because of an extraordinary group of players commanded by Di Stefano and an outstanding president, Santiago Bernabeu. If later RM was favoured by the goverment it was just a consequence of their success, never a cause.
By the way, I think your team has a very beautiful history. But I'm sure if you ask supporters from other teams they will say that the referees favour ManU. All the big teams receive a favourable treatment from the umpires, not only RM.
