It is called Saint Totteringham day , in a mock on Tottenham Hotspurs. This is the nineteenth year in a row in which Tottenham Hotspurs have ended in the table below Arsenal. Last year Tottenham Hotspurs sold their famous Welsh winger Gareth Bale for a world record price of 86 million pounds. They then went on a spending spree and brought seven to eight players for a sum of 110 million pounds.These players came from Denmark, Brazil, Romania, Spain, Argentina . Eric Lamela joined them from Roma for 30 million pounds , he has hardly played a game , more or less all were over payed for. And to be honest only Christen Erikson was worth it. While on the other hand Arsenal got only one player right in the end of january , he was the German Mesut Ozil, for 42.5 million pounds. But he was worth every penny they paid Real Madrid. Arsene Wenger said it was wrong to get seven or eight players in one transfer window as all will not play together or jell together. Buying one or three players is more then enough.

Now as we are nearing the end of this exciting season, there is every chance that the title will go to the wire. Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City , all have a chance of winning the Barclay trophy this year. But the big problem faced by the English F.A is that there are only two trophies , one with the champions Manchester United and the second one at head quarters in London. The headache will be what if the third club win this years E.p.L? After all three points divide each club. Then the only other alternative would be is to go and borrow a trophy from a former winner , like Arsenal or even Blackburn Rovers, who is the only club to win a E.P.L title beside the big four clubs in England. They did it with the help of Alan Shearer.

During the match in Spain between Barcelona and Vilarreal . The game was rather spoilt with a racial attack by a Vilarreal fan, who without much thought threw a banana onto pitch , at Danny Alves, it was indeed insulting and a disgrace to the behavior of the fans. F.I.F.A has condemed it . But Danny Alves did not make a noise about it to the linesman instead he just picked it up and ate the banana, he knew it would give him extra energy.His corner kick produced a goal. The game ended in a 3-2 win for Barcelona, mind you they came back to win the game , after being two goals down. But let us give full edit to the Vilarreal club, as they found the culprit who threw that banana, and they have now terminated the fans season ticket and have baned him from entering their stadium for life.
The Spanish giants Real Madrid are very keen to buy the Uruguyan striker Luis Suarez from Liverpool. In fact according to THE DAILY MIRROR, the Spanish giants are willing to spend a total sum of seventy million pounds for their target Luis Suarez. Real Madrid wanted him last year, but instead decided to go for Gareth Bale instead, for a sum of eighty six million pounds. But here we must remember that Real Madrid have a total debt of over 500 million pounds, it could increase this year as well. And they are known in Europe for buying players at huge amounts and paying the clubs in instalments. Real Madrid have still not paid up the full amount for Luka Modric, and for Gareth Bale as well. They agreed to pay Tottenham Hotspurs a yearly sum of 12.5 million pounds till the year 2018. Liverpool can expect this same thing as well. But there is also a chance that their French striker Karim Benzema will be included in the transfer deal.Real Madrid want 40 million pounds for him, like they got for Mesut Ozil.
For the first time since 1990 there is no Manchester United player in the P.F.A team of the year. The team is as follows. 1) Petr Cech . Goalkeeper. 2) Defenders. Coleman, Kompany,Cahil Shaw. 3) Midfielders.Llana, Gerrard , Toure, Hazard.. 4) Strikers. Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez. And by the way there is no Arsenal player in the P.F.A team either, considering that they have not done so badly as Manchester United.

The French club , who are moneyed by the rich Qatar family are very keen to get the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger next season. Even though Arsene Wenger is known as a person not to break any contract , in all his managerial career. Arsene Wenger has alrady said that he will be signing a new contract at Arsenal next season. But Monaco are tempting him to change his mind ffrom signing a new contract at Arsenal. Monaco are willing to break the bank just to get Arsene Wenger , with the hope that he will join and take Monaco to the champion league. We must rremember that Monaco are willing to pay Arsene Wenger a yearly salary of 12.4 million pounds, that is after tax deductions.So it is three times what he is getting now at Arsenal. The big question is will he join Monaco? We must remember that he is a French man, two he was the manager of Monaco for eight years from 1987/1994.

The Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has promised to take the entire youth team for a lunch at MacDonalds. But there is a hith here the Liverpool youngsters will be treated to a lunch of their choice, but the big condition is that Liverpool must win their E.P.L match against Chelsea , a draw will not do at all here.
Sadly the former Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova , who was suffering from throat cancer for a while now. Barcelona paid his medical treatment money in the U.S.A , even though he was not coaching Barcelona. Barcelona even honoured him by paying his full salary for his entire contract period.He was a good manager as well. But he eventually lost his battle to throat cancer, he died at the age of 45 years, far to early for a man to die. May he Reat In Peace.
Now that Manchester United have gone and sacked David Moyes as their manager. They have now gone and appointed Ryan Giggs their long serving servant he has played 962 games for Manchester United, he is now forty years old. But Manchester United have pulled in old friends and former playes at Manchester United to help Ryan Giggs. Among these four players they have won 61 trophies and have played a total of 2,453 games.S they must know their football very well. 1)Philip Neville. Joined in 1992. Played 386 games for Manchester United . Trophies Champion League. 2. Premier League 6. F.A. Cup 3. Nicky Butt. Joined in 1991. Played 387 Games For Manchester United.Trophies. Champion League1.

Manchester City are now seriously thinking of changing their goalkeeper Joe Hart, as this year he made a few crucial errors and even lost his place between the sticks for a while. And at the same time the French goalkeeper Hugo Loris is not at all happy at Tottenham Hotspurs, he even accused the team for making far to many silly mistakes, and loosing points. Now it is to be seen will this swap really work out for both the clubs.
In Spain the gossib is that Barcelona are getting ready to make a 30 million pound bid for the German play maker from Arsenal, Mesut Ozil . It looks like Barcelona are veery keen to buy a classy playmaker to replace their very long and loyal servant Xavi Hernandez, another one on their list for summer buy was Davd Silva from Manchester City. But to expect Arsene Wenger to sell Mesut Ozil for 30 million pounds is not acceptable it is a twelve million loss. Arsenal had paid Real Madrid 42.5 million pounds. There is also a talk that Cesc Fabregas the former Arsenal player could be sold back to Arsenal.

Now it looks like the Brazilian born striker, but who plays his club football in Spain with Atletico Madrid, is not the main person Chelsea wanted to buy kin the summer, he was wanted very much by Jose Mourinho, who even made big plans to raise fifty million pounds for him Diego Costa. . He was willing to go this far even by selling two great footballers Chelsea have , in Oscar and Eden Hazard as well. But now there is a change in plan the Russian owner Roman Abrahimovic wants to buy Edison Cavani from the French football club P.S.G. Will it be a repeated mistake like Fernando Torres was brought from Liverpool for fifty million pounds, but sadly Fernando Torres was a big failure at Chelsea, he did score a few goals here and there.
Just a day after their former manager David Moyes got sacked as the head manager of Manchester United, these three players Wayne Rooney, Phil Jones and Rafeal DSilva, went out shamelessly to play golf. These three idiots acted as if Manchester United had won the Champion League the previous day. These three are just plain disgrace and not fit to wear the famous red jerseys of THE RED DEVILS. the future of Rafeal Disilva is in doubt , his twin brother is on loan with a small club, they should do the same thing with him. Wayne Rooney is a rebel urinating on the roads, sleeping with a hooker Jenny Thompson when his wife was pregnant. And it played on his mind at the 2010 world cup , he failed to score a single goal. Now that the future of many Manchester United players is uncertain now , these fools should be more serious.
Sacking David Moyes as the manager of Manchester United , was not only because of the position Manchester United found them selves in the E.P.L. They have clearly missed out on the Champion League, and very well could be out of he Europa League as well. But the real reason was the huge amount of money the Glazers have lost . Missing out on Champion League means a loss of 30 million pounds, and missing out on Europe means another 20 million pounds. Manchester United made a 363 millio pounds by june 2013, but they paid the bank 73 million pounds as interest, and they are paying this yearly interest since the Glazers got Manchester United in 2005. The net proit was only 146 million pounds but their debt is a huge 400 million pounds. Paying the staff only comes to 180 million pounds. With Wayne Rooney getting 300,000 pounds a week and Robin Van Persie and Rio Ferdinand getting fat weekly salary as well. Nike were to pay Manchester United 38 million pounds, will they do it now? With Manchester United out of the Champion League and Europe will big footballers join this club? Manchester United has fallen to fifth place , below Bayern Munich as the richest club list.
Now that the Glazers at Manchester United have gone and sacked David Moyes after ten months. Even though iy was done in a very disgusting manner without any class at all, for oone of the worlds richest and most famous clubs. But now who will take up the job on a five year contract, not many would be keen to take the job as they say it is a poisnous chalice. But we must always remember it was not going to be easy for Daviid Moyes to fill the big boots of Alex Ferguson. Now Carlo Anchelotti, Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola have flatly rejected the job. Now the only person keen for the job is the Dutch manager Lois Van Gaal.
Tuesday, April 22, 2014
We we cruely decide to brand David Moyes as the worst manager Manchester United ever had in their first year at Old Trafford. Sir Alex Ferguson . Games 51. Won 23. Drew 17. Lost 11. David Moyes. Games 51. Won 27. Drew 9. Lost 15. It will surprise the whole lot of you that David Moyes has a better ratio then Alex Ferguson. We must never forget that in those 51 games David Moyes also won a trophy the Comunity shield.. Alex Ferguson failed to win a single trophy for years. It all changed in 1993 when Eric Cantona and the Manchester United Golden boys joined in like David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Nicky Butt and Roy Keane. Then the sleeping giant awake , with Roy Keane joining in as well.
The French striker Karim Benzema, who plays his club football in Spain with the Spanish giants Real Madrid. Arsenal were keen to get the French striker and asked for him for the past two years. But now it is possible that they will sell him to arsenal for 25 millin pounds. The rumour mills say that the Spanish giants might have got promises from Sergio Aguero , to shift to Real Madrid from Manchester City. Diego Maradona lamented that Real Madrid had failed to buy his son in law , and let Manchester City buy him then

The Chelsea defender and former England defender John Terry , who is now thirty five years old, has been told by Chelsea that he will only get a one year new contract , as Chelsea are following Arsenals rule that once a player reaches thirty years old he will now be given only a one year contract. And not only that he will have to cut his weekly salary by half, he is now getting a huge weekly salary of 150,000 pounds. The new new Weekly salary will be 75,000 pounds. Will he willing to take such a steap cut in his weekly wages?
The talented Italian midfielder Andres Pirlo , known very well for his beard , long hair and his lethal foot for free kicks. In the year 2009 Chelsea were very keen to buy him from A.C.Milan, but the then owner and president of A.C.Milan Silvio Berdculoni, who ws the president of Italy at that time , flatly rejected the offer. the reson for it to collapse was that A.C. Milan wanted Chelsea to include Barislav Ivonovic in that transfer deal, but Chelsea were not willing to part with their defender . Now Andres Pirlo is playing for Juventus in Turin.
Many footballers have won the champion league on several occastions , but Poalo Maldini is the only footballer to win it playing for one club only. He joined A.c.Milan at the tender age of thirteen years and when he left A.C. Milan at the age of thirty five years he won the Champion League five times. Clarence Seedorf has won the Champion League on four occastions but it was with three clubs one each with Ajax and Real Madrid and twice with A.C. Milan.
We have often heard of footballers who have played their entire career with a club, and they were long ones to.These are some well known goalkeepers. 1) Lars Hogh. Club Odense in Denmark. 817. Games. 2) Lev Yashin. Called THE BLACK SPIDER. Club. Dynamo Moscow. 326 games. Goal. 1. 3) Iker Casillas. Club. Real Madrid. Games. 673. Iker Casillas stood between the Real madrid goalposts in a Champion League match, before he even had a drivers licence.

Diego Costa the Brazilian striker who will be playing for Spain in the 2014 world cup.Has agreed to join Chelsea in the summer for a huge fifty million pounds.And he will also get a huge weekly salary of 185,000pounds. Jose Mourinho clearly wants a good striker at Chelsea and Samuel Etoo, Demba Ba, and Fernando Torres are shown the door. To balance the books he is now going to sell Oscar or even Hazard. The big question is will he Diego Costa settle in the E.P.L with that price on the head,? We all saw what happened to Fernando Torres at Chelsea. Arsenal were keen on him at first , but to spend fifty million pounds on one player is unthinkable for Arsene Wenger.

Liverpool fans must thank their lucky stars that they won their tough match verses Manchester City. The match ended in a Liverpool victory at 3-2. The winning goal was a got by Philippe Coutinho for Liverpool after the Manchester City captain Vincente Kompany misfired a clearing kick that weht to Coutinho who scored the winner. But in a match of this importance , the refree made a major mistake Mark Clatterburg failed to give Manchester City a penalty in the dieing moments of the game. The ball clearly touched the outstretched arms of Martin Skertel, who could easily become a villan from a hero, he got the second goal by heading it in. Just goal line technology will not do cameras must be used to detect penalties as well.. The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has always wanted cameras on the pitch for goal line technology as well as for penalties and other mistakes. Take the case when the refree showed Kireon Gibbs a red card when it should have been shown to Alex Chamberlain instead for a handballl in the box.
Barcelona are crowned the new Under 19 U.E.F.A champions they defeated Benfica in the final. The Spanish team defeated Benfica 3-0. Two goals were scored by Munir Alhaddadi . The second one was a beauty a kick from the middle of the pitch. The Barcelona player saw that the Benfica was out, so he let the ball go like a cannon shell, it indeed brought memories of those kicks of Roberto Carlos and David Beckham. Now that F.I.F.A has put a year long transfer ban on Barcelona , so now they can not buy any footballer or sell any footballer till June 2015. But now what will happen to Barcelona? Barcelona will have to use these talented footballers till the ban is lifted , or even for the matter if Barcelona win their appeal against F.I.F.A. F.I.F.A only want to ruin football with their corrupt ways . I will not be surprised that Barcelona will reach the Champion League next year as well.
It was in the year 2005 , Jose Mourinho the self declared SPECIAL ONE , wanted to buy Steven Gerrard . And let us be honest Steven Gerrard was very much tempted to join up with Chelsea. The Liverpool fans were angered and burned the famous jersey number 8 of Liverpool, the one worn by Steven Gerrard.. But Steven Gerrard thought long and very hard indeed about the offer, and thankfully he decided to stay at Liverpool. Yes he has won less trophies at Liverpool but he is still loved at Liverpool. The English fans who are quite bad even threatened to harm him and his family. So in other words it is the Liverpool fans who should be blamed for the less trophies at Liverpool.
The Colombian striker Adrian Ramos , who plays his club football in Germany with Hertha Berlin . Will now replace the Polish striker Robert Lewdawnski, who is Bayern Munich bound from the next season. It now looked that the Croatian striker Marco Manduchuick could be leaving the German giants Bayern Munich.And Arsenal was a club very keen for him. But now Bayern Munichs sporting director Mathias Sammer has told all clubs oin europe to keep their hands of their Croatian striker , even if Robert Lewdawnski joins Bayern Munich. Or will the Croatian striker be happy playing second fiddle?

Arsenal have been given the green signal to go ahead and sign the young dutch defender Darryl Janamaat from the Dutch club Feynoord. He could very well replace the French defender at Arsenal, Bacray Sagna who has still not yet signed a new contract with Arsenal. While Darryl Janamaat is in his last year of his contract at Feynoord , and they do not want to loose him for free. Feynoord were expecting to collect seven million pounds for their star defender. But it looks more and more likely that Arsenal wll buy him for even half that amount. Feynoord are keen to recoup some of that money at least.
Friday, April 11, 2014
Javier Hernandez the Mexican striker who plays his club football at Manchester United in the E.p.L. Has been shabilly treated not having played much games since the last two years or so. He is now expected to join Atletico Madrid in Spain in the summer. The main reason for the dersire to get Javier Hernandez is that their main goalscorer Diego Costa who is from Brazil but has decided to play for Spain , could very well be on his way to Chelsea or even fot the matter P.S.G. Chelsea are selling both their stars Oscar as well as Eden Hazard to pay the high price of Diego Costa. Which could easily cross the fifty million pound transfer rate.
Thursday, April 10, 2014
Just before we demand the sacking of David Moyes in his first year as the manager of Manchester United, it is but fair that we also compare the first year of Alex Ferguson at Manchester United. 1) David Moyes . matches 33. Won 17. Lost 10. For 56. Against 38. Points 57. 2) Alex Ferguson. Matches 33. Won 13. Lost 8. For 42. Against 32. Points 51. Please give him time will you?
The big question people are asking is will Luis Suarez leave Liverpool and join Manchester United in the summer.? We must remember that Liverpool are on the top of the E.p.L today and were leading in the begining as well, till Arsenal took over from them. It now looks like Manchester United are very keen to get the troublsome striker from Liverpool, and the person who is brokering the deal is his fellow countryman Diego Forlan , who played for Manchester United for several seasons. But will Liverpool sell their striker from Uruguay? But one thing is very clear here Liverpool are on the top of table because between Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez , these two have scored about fifty goals. And the other goals came from Steven Gerrard who is 33 years old now and has had a few injuries as well. But liverpool may be knocked out from the top of the table as they have to play both Manchester City and Chelsea as well.
The big question on every ones mind is will the Belgiun goalkeeper who is very talented , and is owned by Chelsea , but was sent out on loan to Atletico Madrid, to replace David De Gea, who was sold to Manchester United. Now in the 2013/2014 champion league msemi final match , could Thibaut Courtois play in the goal for Atletico Madrid? And the answer is yes and a no as well. Chelsea have put a clause on his contract , which is rather harsh on the Spaniards. The clause says that Atletico Madrid will have to pay Chelsea four million pounds for every game he plays against Chelsea. And to be honest Atletico Madrid do not have that money . They are even talking of selling their main goal scorer Diego Costa even to generate funds.
Arsenal fell from the top of the table in the E.P.L, they took over from Liverpool who lead for long periods, and are now on top. But we must ask whether the Arsenal goalkeeper was that bad or was it poor defence. The Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny , who comes from Poland. This season he has played in thirty three games and has also made 103 saves , and has also kept thirteen clean sheets. This stastics is next best to the Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech. Yes he has a bad habit of sliding and tackling apponents in the box and so conceeding many penalties.
U.E.F.A closed the gate section number 124 at the Allianz stadium, which means a lot of seats were empty 700 in all. They paid the penalty for displaying a banner that said GAY GUNNERS showing a cannon firing at Meshut Ozil, it was during their group of sixteen matches between Bayern Munich and Arsenal. Bayern Munich were also fined a sum of ten thousand Euros or equal to eight thousandthree hundred and fifty nine U.S Dollars. This was absoolutely shameful and unpardenable by these Bayern Munich fans.
There was a great a lot of talk of Everton is the rightful club in the E.P.L to take number four in the E.P.L and so over throww Arsenal , who have played for sixteen years in a row at the champion league, no small feetfor a club that does not spend money madly on footballers. But Everton fans should realize that they are in this place only because they have aken players on loan to huge sum of fifty million pounds, and that is a huge sum indeed.. Everton and their chairman do nt have the money to buy these players like Romelu Lukaku, Gareth Barry and Deulfeu. Sooner or later they will go back to their parent club, then what will happen to Everton and Roberto Martinez.

It is almost unthinkable for a football club , anywhere in the world to have a goalkeeper who does not have a left hand at all. It is but common sense that the goalkeeper is the only player allowed to use both his hands.. But in the Romanian forth division they have a goalkeeper who has only his right hand, he does not have a left hand. His name is Tudorel Mihailescu and is 48, fortyeight years old. He plays for a club in Romania called VULCAN and it is in the forth division. He has developed his passing the ball with very long throws to his players, this very clearly means his muscles in his right hand are very, very strong indeed..
The spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla is trying very hard to get Iker Casillas to join up with him at Arsenal. It is no secret that Iker Casillas has been treated very shabily by Real Madrid fr the past two years. For those who came in late Iker Casillas stood between the goal posts for mighty Real Madrid before he even got his driving licence. And it is no secret either that he will be welcomed with open arms at Arsenal.

He first denied that he was not willing to leave Bayern munich for Manchester United in the summer. But on second thought he has decided to move to the E.p.L , with Manchester United. Manchester United are willing to pay the German giants bayern Munich forty million pounds for footballer, they will also pay Toni Kroos a huge weekly salary of 200.000 pounds a week. The main reason for Toni Kroos to change his mind suddenly was that he told friends that he noo longer wanted to play second fiddle to Basitian Schweizenger at Bayern Munich. And the offer of a huge juicy carrot of 40 million pounds may just tempt Bayern and Guardiola to sell him. After all FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES are very much in place now. And 76 clubs have so far failed in it.

As Manchester United is finding it hard to attract good footballers now , mainly due to their position in the E.P.L and the big question about their manager David Moyes. Now we see that the Manchester United football stars have now decided not to let their sons sign for Manchester United, instead they have signed for Manchester Uniteds rivals. 1) Ashley Youngs son Tyler has signed for Arsenal. 2)Robin Van Persies son Shaqueel has signed for Manchester City. 3) Phil Nevilles son Harvey has signed for Manchester City as well. This is like rats leaving a giant ship.
The Brazilian football star who was formerly playing for Santos, a club made famous by the football legend PELE. Neymars father has flatly denied that he ever signed a contract with the Spanish giants Barcelona.But he did agree that he had recieved ten million Euros or 13.6 million Dollars, taken in the year 2011 as a guarentee that Barcelona would definately sign him in in the year 2014 The transfer cost eventually did cost Barcelona 57.1 million Euros and another two million Euros would be given to the 21 year old Brazilian star , that is if he reached the final of the F.I.F.A World player of the year. At Barcelona this transfer cauded big noise and this also lead to the resignation of the former president Sandro Rossel.
Wayne Rooney the English striker who plays for the club Manchester United for the past ten years now,has gone and signed a long time contract with the club, that will keep the twenty eight year old player at the club till the year 2019. To make it sure that Wayne rooney did stay at the club Manchester United are paying through their noses, the new deal mans , that the club will pay Rooney sixty five million pounds till 2019. And the weekly salary of Wayne Roney has increased in leaprs and bounds , it is now a huge 300,000 pounds a week. I personally feel no footballer is worth so much money.

The very big spending by Chelsea look to be over, and they are now forced to to sell their cream of footballers to balance their books and fall in line with THE FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULE. They have already sold Juan Mata to Manchester United. And it is reported that Jose Mourinho is so desperate to get a very good goal scoring striker , that he is now willing to sell either Oscar or for the matter even Eden Hazard. They want to genrate funds to buy the Brazilian born striker Diego Costa from the Spanish club Atletico Madrid, but the price of Diego Costa has reached 45 million pounds and could easily pass 50 million pounds after the world cup. Chelsea are selling Fernando Torres, Demba Ba, Samuel Etoo and othes as wel, such as David Luiz. The big question will then be will Chelsea be the same team, mind you both Frank Lampard and John Terry are getting old now.

The Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has been now given three match ban and one suspended following his verbal assault on the Swedish refereeJonas Eriksson, as he was not at all happy with the standard of the Swedes refereeing in the Champion League match , when Manchester City played Barcelona, when Manchester City lost 2-0 to Barcelona, in the first leg of the group of 16 in this years Champion League played on 18/2/2014. The sour note was over the goal Lionel Messi scored.
The much travelled French striker has got a five match ban from the English F.A . It came after the match between West Bromwich Albion.andWest Ham United . After scoring the goal he celebrated it with a contreversial Queenelle. He now gets beside the five match ban also will get a fineof 8,000, eight thousand pounds . But that is not all the English club will also investigate ithe whole thing themselves, in other words he could face a longer ban and another fine ofupto two weeks salary, according to the F.A rules.
The U.E.F.A the European governing body for football in Europe, had indroduced the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULE. This rule came into force as the rich oil owned clubs were spending far to much of money on players.Now the clubs must only use money generated by selling players and trimming down on wages as well. But sadly clubs did not take it very seriously , and seventy six clubs have fall into this new rule, in April 2014 U.E.F.A will announce sanctions against these clubs , and more serious cases will be judged in june 2014. Punishment could be very harsh on clubs they could face a trade embargo for a year that is the transfer window will be closed fpor these clubs in both the months of June and January. Just as Barcelona are facing transfer windows be shut for the club.These clubs can not buy or sell players. Those more gulty will loose their Champion League spots as well.

This is the greatest and best Manchester United team ever , and it is selected by Sir Alex Ferguson himself.He was manager at the club for a record 26 years and 124 days. Some big players have missed out like Wayne Rooney, Andy Cole, Teddy Sherringham , Dwight Yorke, David Beckham and so on. 1) Peter ScheMichel .

1) When Lionel Messi scored a hat trick against Real Madrid in the second El Clasico of 2013/3014 it has come after fifty one long years since a player in Spain has ever scored a hat trick at the Santiago Bernabeu. The last time a player scored a hat trick against Real Madrid it was then scored by Ferenc Puskas it was way back in the year 1963, when he played. 2) Lionel Messi has scored a total of 26 hat tricks so far.
The EL CLASICO which means THE CLASSIC , for matches played between the two Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid. The first EL CLASICO was won by Barcelona and this match was played at the Santiago Bernabeu , the Madrid fans came out in full strength to support their club, the fans numbered over eighty thousand all waving white flags of Real Madrid. But whatever the result it was going to be a thrilling game. The first goal was scored by Andres Iniesta , who collected a neat pass from Lionel Messi to strike the first goal. Then Real Madrid took the lead with two goals from Karim Benzema.For Real Madrid it was Angel Di Maria who troubled the Barcelona players he passed the ball to Karim Benzema who headed the ball into the net, it just tipped the hand of the Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes. The Real Madrid pair were involved in the second goal as well the ball passed over the head of Javier Mascherano for Karim Benzema to score his second goal. But Barcelona made it sure that they would go into the tunnel at half time at 2-2.Lionel Messi and Neymar passed the ball crisply between the two for Messi to score a powerful volley beating the defence as well as goalie Lopez. Fabregas had his throat caught by Pepe in frustration , but even as both were booked, actually the law says a player can not touch another player this way , Pepe should have been given a red card. As Lionel Messi and Neymar made their passes sweetly, Neymar got a faint touch from Sergio Ramos in the box , Lionel Messi scored the penalty. Barcelona were not finished yet as Xavi Alonso brought down Andres Iniesta in the box and Lionel Messi scored his second penalty. The result was Real Madrid 3 goals Benzema 20/24 , Ronaldo 55 minute penalty.Barcelona 4 goals Iniesta 7, Messi 42, 65,84 miinute penalty
Edison Cavani the striker from Uruguay , who joined P.S.G from Napoli for a huge amount , has now said he is not at all happy with the French club and is looking for a move in the coming summer to the E.P.L. The two main clubs that are interesting him are Chelsea and Manchester United. He has said that his brother who is also his agent will sit down to talk it over with these two big English giants. Chelsea are doing clearing out this summer with Demba Ba, Fernando Torres and Samuel Etoo going to be shown the door.Here the main idea is to trim the club wages as well and also generate funds to buy players, and fall in line with THE FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES of U.E.F.A. Manchester United are also keen on Edison Cavani as they are now seventh on the E.p.L table.
Jose Mourinho has made it very clear that he will be forced to sell the Brazilian defender David Luiz to generate funds to buy the Brazilian born but Spanish footballer Diego Costa in the summer. As Diego Costa has done very well for his club Atletico Madrid, so his price has gone up to 45 million Euros. So players from Chelsea are on their way out, they are Ashley Cole, Fernando Torres , Samuel Etoo and Demba Ba. He was forced to sell Juan Mata to Manchester United as well. This was all because of the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES.
