In the Ballon DOr shortlist of 23 players. the big surprise is that there is not a single player from England there, while there are lots from Germany and Spain as well. But only one from franch club Paul Pogba, and one from a French club Zalatan Ibrahimovic, in other words Chelsea had more players Eden Hazard, Diego Cost Thiabuat Courtios.
Out of six managers who won the League Cup, five managers were sacked in a year. Will history repeat itself all over again? The five managers to get sacked after winning the League Cup are as follows. 1) Jose Mourinho. 2) Juane Ramos. 3 ) Michael Ladrup. 4) Ian Mac leish. 5) Kenny Dalgalish. the sixth winner is the reigning champion Manuel Pelegrinni.
So if THE Metro is to be believed then theGerman footballer Marco Reus could very well be on his way to Liverpool, after talks with his German club collapsed altogether. Liverpool are willing to pay a fee of 32 million pounds for him, and plan to buy him in the january transfer . But Marco Reus has a history of serious injuries, he was wanted by the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, but he got injured before the world cup , and so had to miss it.He then got injured into the new season as well. That is why Liverpool have a open field for him. Marco Reus is asking Liverpool a weekly salary of 180,000 pounds.
There is no doubt about it Manchester City are indeed a worried lot these days. They have completely forgotten their football boots at home. They have lost threematches on a trot, something not used to be seen at Manchester City,mind you the Arab owner has spent a mind blowing figure on buying players and it stands at a BILLION POUNDS.Not many clubs can spend this crazy money. And to make matters more difficult for the manager , their ever reliable play maker David Silva has a knee injury, and their big midfielder Yaya Toure has a groin problem, will they recover for the E.P.L match against Manchester United?
Arsenal anted to buy gonzalo Higuain , when he was at Real Madrid, Arsene Wenger almost made a deal for ninteen million pounds, but Real Madrid wanted to make more money on him as they needed the cash to buy Gareth Bale. Real madrid always sell good players to generate funds to buy other costly players. For example Real Madrid sold Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben to buy Cristiano Ronaldo. Now it appears that the Naples club Napoli are in financial problems so Gonzalo Higuain will be sold , and Arsenal need a proven striker as Oliver Giroud has a leg broken.
The Liverpool and England striker Daniel Sturridge, who now has to carry a lot of responsibility on his young shoulders after the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona for 75 million pounds. Last year thse two strikers at Liverpool scored well over fifty goals between them, now that Daniel Sturridge is injured Liverpool are not scoring goals. Daniel Sturridge says his injury problem could very well be heredetery, as both his uncles Dean and Simon had the same problem as Daniel Sturridge, so did his father, it could be the Caribean thing he says.
When nick Mcarthy took over at Ipswich City, things were dark and gloomy the club was on its way down with a drop to the next tier. But now things are different at the club, he gets players only on the Bossman Rule or a loan, only one player in the team is worth 100,000 pounds. They got good defenders and attacking midfielders all on loan mind you, and then what happened. They started winning their matches and climbing the ladder as well once again. There is now a very good possibility of creeping back into the E.P.L
Gianlughi Buffon the Juventus goalkeeper , who was playing in game number five hundred for the Turin club.He also is he worlds costliest goalkeeper ever, Juventus paid Parma sum of thirtysix million poundsfor him, almost the price for a striker. There is no doubt about it that he is indeed a very good goalkeeper. His game number five hundred was against the club called Genoa. But things were not going to be as expected at Juventus , Antonini the defender who scored the goal that defeated Buffon as well as Juventus. Sadly there was no party for Juventus and Gianlughi Buffon.
Now it appears ManchesterUnited have agreed to to make the goal scoring machine from Colombia , who is on a year long loan at Manchester United The amount Manchester United will pay the French club Monaco a huge sum of fortyfour million pounds , to make his move to Manchester United permenant in the summer. But he has scored just one lucky goal so far.
It is reported in THE DAILY MAIL that Mia Haam the famous lady footballer from the U.S.A, who won two world cups for the U.S.A, and was also the Women footballer of the year on two ocasstions as well. She has now been appointed on the Board of the famous Italian club A.S.Roma.
It is reported in The Metro that Liverpool are very keen to sign a very goood goalkeeper to challenge Simon Mingnolet. Brendan Rodgers was very keen to buy a second goalkeeper of class , who would challenge Simon Mingnolet. First he though of the free agent VictorValdes from Barcelona, but he felt that Victor Valdes had not recovered enough. Now he wants the young Mexican goalkeeper who really did well at the 2014 world cup in Brazil, along with David Ospina, Neylor Navas . But the Mexican joined the Spanish club Malaga , after the world cup. But sadly the move turned very sour, and he has not played a single match for Malaga so far. So now Brendan Rodgers wants to buy him for five million pounds from Malaga.
The Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer , is a person anyone can feel safe with when he stands between the two poles. But unfortunately in the match between Bayern Munich and Hamburg, he completely forgets that he was a goalkeeper. In that match he stopped the ball with his feet, and instead of the usual long kick of his , he started dribbling with the ball, and even when a Hamburg player came to take it he calmly passed it back to a Bayern Munich player. The Bayern fans really had their hearts in their mouths for a few moments. The match ended with a 2-0 win for Bayern Munich.
The Real Madrid manager Carlo Anchelotti says he has no plans what so ever to sell the Welsh winger Gareth Bale . Even though the rumours are going around by the press that Manchester United have kept aside ninet million pounds to buy Gareth Bale, and they have even are willing to pay him a weekly salary of 300,000 pounds, which is indeed very heavy salary i9ndeed. Carlo Anchelotti says it just does not matter if Isco is playing so well, Bale is definately not going anywhere in the january transfer window.

It now appears that the famous French manager of Arsenal , Arsene wenger will be retiring by the end of next year. But the big question is who will fill his big shoes at Arsenal? It now appears the peson approved by Arsene Wenger to take over Arsenal will be a man called Paul Clement, he is fortysix years old .But one thing is clear he has not managed a club, so there is no experience in that department. But he has worked with very big clubs in Europe like Chelsea, P.S.G and Real Madrid as well. The question will be on everyones mind, will he fail like David Moyes did at Mancjhester United? But we must give him him time at Arsenal, and we must be patient. After all he has to fill very big boots.
It is reported in THE METRO that Arsenal have opened talks with the Italian club from Naples , Napoli to buy their Argentinean striker Gonzalo Higuain for a total of 32 million pounds. We must also remember that Gonzalo Higuain while he was at Real Madrid was wanted by Arsenal, but Real Maadrid wanted money to buy Gareth Bale, so they were forced to sell Gonzalo Higuain to Napoli for thirty two million pounds.As Gareth Bale did cost a new world record of eightysix million pounds. Now it is clear that Gonzalo Higuain is not happy and has become unsettled at Napoli, Arsenal are keen, but so are Liverpool. Liverpool are wanting a striker of Luis Suarez class, both Mario Bolotelli and Daniel Sturridge have faikled to live up toexpectations.
Sir Geoff Hurst the only footballer ever to score a hat trick in the 1966 world cup final in England. Geoff Hurst who played his club football with West Ham United, along with sir Bobby Moore. Geoff Hurst reported in THE DAILY MIRROR, that he nearly gave up fotball in the year 1962 four years before the famous 1966 world cup win against West Germany. He was more keen to be a cricketer and also played for Essex second eleven. But what would have happened if he really did quit football? England would still be waiting for their first world cup even today.
It looks more and more likely that the Atletico Bilbao defender will be heading to Manchester United in January. Arsenal to were very keen to get his signature , but it appears that the Spaniard was a Manchester United fan in a very big way, so that played a big part in it. But another point was , that Manchester United were willing to pay out the entire buy out clause of thirty two million pounds for him, something Arsenal was not willing to pay that much money for him As he is not heard much off.
Ronald Koeman the Dutch defender of the 1990s, who played his club football with Barcelona in Spain and Feynoord as well. He is remembered mainly as a defender at Barcelona, who along with Miguel Nadal, the uncle of Rafael Nadal, made a very good pair of defenders. Ronald Koeman was also known as the freekick specialist at Barcelona , and he also took all their penalties as well. He has scored 102 goals for Barcelona this way, not many defenders score a total over hundred goals.
Arsenal have opened talks with Stephen Lichtsiener the thirty year old defender from Switzerland , who plays his club football in Italy with Juventus, also called THE OLD LADY OF TURIN. He is at the end of his contract in the summer and Arsenal could also get him at a very low cut out price. But the problem is that Real madrid, Chelsea and even P.S.G are keen to buy him as well in the janiary transfer window.
The new NEYMAR will play for Arsenal next season, his name is Wellinton Silva, and he is from Brazil, he is a very talented and tricky winger who really can score goals as well. He could not play for Arsenal , as he simply did not have a work permit to play. He then went to sunny Spain and plaid for Almeira, now he can very welll come to England and play club football for Arsenal. Arsenal fans can be in for a good season next year. Wellington Silva joined Arsenal from the Brazilian club Figueirensl for a small sum of 3.5 million pounds.
The Swedish footballer Klas Inglesson, has sadly died to cancer at the age of fortysix years of age. He was a footballer in the 1990s he played in the 1994 world cup in the U.S.A. He also played for foreign clubs in Italy and Holland. In Italy he played for Bogona, and in Holland he played for P.S.V. Eindhoven.
The LA MASSIA. the famous youth academy of Barcelona that has produced high class footballers over the years , most famous is Lionel Messi.Today there are thirteen players in the Barcelona team from the academy. So talented is the Barcelona players that youngsters find it hard to get through to the first team. This has forced players to look for other clubs to play regularelly. Most famous are Mikel Arteta Everton and Arsenal, Cesc Fabregas Arsenal and Chelsea. In fact there are thirty players developed at the La Masssia playing in Germany, Italy, England , Franceand Spain. While there are twenty six players trained at Real Madrid playing in Europe. Manchester United have twenty four playing at other clubs in Europe.
It looks like Loius Van Gaal is not at all happy with Luke Shaw, their left back at Manchester United.Even as they have spent thirty two million pounds on him. It looks more likely that Louis Van Gaal will get Ashley Cole from the Italian club A.S.Roma. Ashley Cole has sadly not settled yet at A.S.Roma., even after a short time of three months in Italy. But Ashley Cole is now 33 years old, well passed the time.

Now F.I.F.A have made a shortlist of footballers for the Ballon D Or award. One name was a surprise miss in the list it was Luis Suarez from Uruguat , who played for Liverpool last year and scored 31 goals for Liverpool last year . But the name of Luis Suarez was rightfully omitted as he was caught biting a footballer during the 2014 world cup in Brazil.. Footballers are suposed to be role models for little children you see. So sadly he was omitted .
Gianluighi Buffon the Italy and Juventus goalkeeper is probably the second best after Gordan Banks according to me. He joined Juventus in 2001 for a record spent to buy a goalkeeper ,it was 38,thirty eight million pounds,and is still the highest ever paid for a goalkeeper. Buffon now will be playing his game number five hundred,500 for Juventus, he will be honoured as captain that day, with a special armband with the number 500 on it , instead of the word captain. Out of a totall of five hundred games played for Juventus , Buffon has kept 237 clean sheets, Just imagine that.
Even though there is no English footballler in the short list of twenty three players, for the Ballon D Or. But Calum Chambers, Raheem Sterling and Adnan Januzaj are very much in the list of footbalers to win the The Golden Boy Of the year award. So let us see in the end who will win , Wayne Rooney won way back in 2004.
In the shortlist for the 23 for the BALLON DOR. Sadly there is not a single English footballer in the list. Neither was there one last year. Very true players from Argentina, Spain and Ivory Coast, Belgium, France are there, but not a single English footballer, in other words the quality of the English footballer is just plain bad ,not fit to be in the list.
The alarm bells are ringing loud and clear in Europe, as the number of homegrown players have fallen rapidly, in England and also in Italy, this may surprise many football in Italy is dieing a slow death. The percentage of homegrown players has fallen each year in England, leading to managers have a great difficulty in finding talent fora world cup stars. England 2014/2015. 13.94 percent of Homegrown players. Spain. 2014/2015. 22.4.Percentof Home grown Players France. 2014/2015. 24.6.Percent of Homegrown players. Germany. 2014/2015. 16.4.Percent of Homegrown players. Italy. 2014/2o15. 9.6. Percent of Homegrown players.
According to THE METRO, Real Madrid have now decided that they will be happy to sell Gareth Bale to Manchester United for a total sum of ninety million pounds. But reading thisarticle a few eyebrows may rise, but he is getting injured ooften , and missing games. But Carlo Anchelotti has no worry in selling the worlds costliest footballer, as he has got a readymade replacement in Isco, who has done well. And let us be honest Real Madrid are in big debt , it is said the debt is six hundred million pounds. And it was even reported that Real madrid are willing to change the stadiums name by from Santiago Bernabeu to the Etihad Airways.Big money coming in. The only problem will be that Manchester United should be ready to spend that ninety million pounds, and it said Gareth Bale will also get a weekly salary of 300,000 pounds.
It looks more and more likely that Arsenal will be the only club willing to spend a huge amount of thirtytwo million pounds on the German defender Mats Hummels. All last summer Louis Van Gaal chased Mat Hummels , but failed to sign him up , as one of the players that did cost Manchester United a huge 153 , one hundred and fiftythree million pounds. Now according to THE DAILY STAR , it is reported that Louis Van Gaal has finally given up on signing the German defender Mat Hummels from Borrusia Dortmund, in fact he is now targetting Ezequiel Garay from Zeneith Petersburgh.

Ayoze the Spanish striker , who joined Newcastle United from Tenerife , for asum of 1.5 million pounds. Now this speedy winger has admited at last that in the summer both Real Madrid and Barcelona were both very keen to sign him. But he flatly rejected these two Spanish giants for the E.P.L club which is struggling near the bottom of the E.P.l.
Victor Valdes who is now a free agent after leaving Barcelona in the summer. There was a rumour that Manchester United were indeed going to sign the Spaniard as a golkeeper. But now it looks like it is complicated now, as Victor Valdes is injured with a knee problem, aqnd Liverpool rejected him because of the injury. But it was reported in THE METRO that Victor Valdes does not want to be a second goalkeeper at Manchester United, to David De Gea
Even though Cristiano Ronaldo moved from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2009, the deal was done a year earlier in the year 2008 . It was all thrashed out in the house of the foormer assistant manager to Alex Ferguson Carlos Querioz. Alex Ferguson was not at first willing to sell Cristiano Ronaldo for eighty million pounds a then world record for a footballer. Alex Ferguson was not keen at all to sell Ronaldo, these are his very own words. Do you think I would sell him to a mob of yours, refering to Real Madrid , I am not going to sell you all anything, not even a virus , leave alone Cristiano Ronaldo. But it was all sorted out in Carlos Querioz own house. We must remember that Ronaldo joined Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon for just 12 million pounds, so eighty million pounds was very big money then in 2009.
The most own goals scored by a player in the E.P.L is the Irish man David Dunn, who has scored the most own goals sadly. He has scord a huge total of ten , 10 own goals . He has scored those ten own goals while playing for Aston Villa, Manchester City and Queen Park Rangers The goalkeeper to score the most own goals is the goalkeeper Robert Green. He has scored three own goals. But we must sympathize with them as David Dunnis a defender, and small errors could be costly ones to

I often what ever got into Brendan Rodgers , to think that he could tame the ecentric Italian striker Mario Bolotelli? After a;ll Jose Mourinho failed with him at Inter Milan, so did Roberto Mancini at Manchester City. Brendan Rodgers is paying a heavy price for rejecting Loic Remy. He has now decided to get a new striker in January, when the transfer window does open. The striker he has decided to replace Mario Bolotelli with is the young English striker Saido Berahino, from WestBrom Albion. But the problem is that West BromAlbion are asking twentyfive,25 million pounds for him. He could have had Loic Remy for eight millions only, say a costly mistak Brendan Rodgers.
Pedro Rodrigues the Barcelona winger, who has come from the famous youth academy of Barcelona called THE LA MASSIA or the castle. As he is not getting enough of starting time at Barcelona , and is only playing a short time as a substitute. It is clear he is getting wrestless at Barcelona. He has now told Barcelona to please release him in the january transfer window, as he wants to move on to Arsenal instead. In fact in the summer transfer window Arsenal did come nocking at the door for him, but that deal just did not materalise at all, in fact Arsenal then went and got the Chilean Alexis Sanchez, and what a buy it has turned out to be, he has already scored eight goals in nine games for Arsenal.
Claudio Bravo who has joined Barcelona this year, has played eight matches and seven hundred and twenty minutes without conceading a single goal in the Spanish La Liga. Like all good things have to come to a end sadly. And in the first EL CLASICO of 2014/2015, he was finally beaten in the thirtyfifth minute against mighty Real Madrid. The goal came in the thirtyfifth minute of the match, in a penalty scored by Cristiano Ronaldo, after a handball by Gerrad Pique in the box. So he had gone a total fof 755 minutes without letting in a goal. He failed to break the record set by Abel Resino who played 1,275 minutes without conceeding a goal way back in the year1990/1991. It looks like this Atletico Bilbao goalkeepers record will stand for many a year to come.
Let us be fair to Mario Bolotelli here, after all it was not his idea to swap the famous Liverpool jersey.The Idea was given by the Brazilian born footballer Pepe , who plays for Real madrid and Portugal. He is another ecentric player, we saw what he did at the world cup 2014 in Brazil, he head butted a player and got a straight red card and a three match ban. THE DAILY MAIL clearly shows a picture of Pepe asking Mario Bolotelli to swap jerseys in the tunnel. This was not only disgusting it was disrespectful to the club. Players llke Steven Gerrard would never do it,Pepe is the one to be punished and fined.

According to THE METRO , it appears Manchester United are bound on buying Gareth Bale from Real Madrid. To tempt Gareth Bale to move on, Manchester United have already kept aside ninety million pounds to buy him from the Spanish giants Real Madrid. Louis Van Gaal has also said that they will be willing to pay Gareth Bale a huge weekly salary of 300,000 pounds. Now that will not only make Gareth Bale the costliest player in the world, it will also make him the highest paid player as well. He will get roughly the same salary as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

The Football team from NewYork called The Red Bulls , sure have a heart, they allowed a little five year old girl named Irelyn Maloney, who is suffering from a genetic illness called Familal Mediterenean Fever. Which will not allow her to play sports. But the Red Bulls and Theirry Henry had other ideas. They took the little girl to theor training ground and played with her , they gave her a jersey number 31 worn by her best Red Bull player. They allowed her to play and kick the ball, and the big moment came when she scored a goal.What a thrill it was for her.
The goal chose the greateest Barcelona and Real Madrid players to play in the E;l Classico, it indeed very hard to chooose the starting eleven for both these Spanish giasnts But I found four major mistakes. In the Real Madrid team both the Brazilian Ronaldo and Luis Figo And in Barcelona these famous players were omitted Diego Maradona and Samuel Etoo.
It is reported in THE METRO that the English giants Manchester United are indeed very keen to spend and strengthen their team in january. So the player THe Red Devils are keen on is the Welsh winger Gareth Bale , the former Tottenham Hotspur winger , who was sold to Real Madrid for a then recrd pricee of eightysix million pounds. This broke the previus record of Cristiano Ronaldo , who was sold from Manchester United to Real Madrid for eighty million pounds. The big question is will Gareth Bale return to England and Manchester United. Manchester united are willing to spend ninety million pounds on Gareth Bale.
During the Euro 2016 qualifying match between Serbia and Albania, which was abandoned due to a unmanned drone flying over the stadium , it also had the Albanian folag and map. Now both Serbia and Albania were involved in the Kosovo war, and can not call them a two friendly nations. There was a free for all in the stadium with people invading the stadium as well fighting and throwing chairs was adding to the chaos. Now U.E.F.A have given their verdict on the incident.Serbia have won the match 3-0. But both have three points deducted, and both were fined 100,00 Euros or 78,000 pounds each. And both countries will have to play two games behind closed doors.
On 25/10/ 2014 is theday of the EL CLASSICO , it will be held in the Santiago Bernabeau. Luis Suarez will be playing as he has completed the four month ban from all football, after the world cup incident. It will be fought out between Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar for Barcelona and Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and James Rodriguez for Real Madrid. Lionel Messi value today is 105.6 million pounds. Cristiano Ronaldo is worth 105.4 million pounds. All the Barcelona players are valued at 406.5 million pounds. The Real Madrid team is valued at 385.4 Million pounds. This could well be the last EL CLASSICO played in Spain. On the 11/11/2014 Catolonya will hold a referendum on Independence for Catolonya.Once they win the referendum they no longer can play in tghe LA LIGA.
Paul Pogba the young French midfielder was kicked out of Manchester United, he was then sold to the Italian giants Juventus , often called THE OLD LADY OF TURIN. This happened during the time of Sir Alex Ferguson as manager of Manchester United. But the story that is going around was that Paal Pogba caught Ryan Giggs , with his brothers wife. As it was Ryan Giggs involved Paul Pogba had to be sold. Manchester United wanted him back, but there was no luck tere . We are now told in THE DAILY MAIL , that Paul Pogba has signed a new contract at Juventus till the year 2019.
It now looks the Spaniard Gerrard Pique is a very much wanted player in England. According to THE METRO Chelsea have now taken the lead to sign the spanish center back Gerrard Pique from mighty Barcelona , for a sum of twenty million pounds Earlier it was Manchester United who were really keen to sign Gerrard Pique. But I would like to remind both of them , Louis Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho as well, that they will be facing a major problem to sign him. And the problem is Gerrard Piques live in partner , the famous Pop Diva from Colombia Shakhira, and Shakhira has no desire what so ever to move to England.
Sami Khedira the German midfielder has now decided to cut his demand where his weekly salary was concerned to about half of what he was asking for. Earlier on he wanted to increase his weekly salary at Arsenal by three folds , he was asking a huge salary of 150,000 pounds.This was something Arsenal just would never agree to. Now according to THE METRO Sami Khedira is now asking for 80,000 pounds, looks like wisdom had dawned on him at last.
Tyhe Italian giants Inter Milans long serving president Massimo Moratti has stepped down after twenty long years at Inter Milan. The major share owner of Inter Milan ,is no longer a Italian , it is a Indonesian buissnessman Erik Thoir. Another club owned by eastern money. But let us see what happened at Inter Milan in these twenty years. 1) Paul Ince joined the club in the 1990, along with Dennis Bergkamp. Inter won the treeble, they also won the champion league in 2010. Inter Milan also got the football world Mario Bolotelli Moratti a;lso got Jose Mourinho as manager, who won the champion league in 2010. A.C.Milan and Inter Milan were one club till 1909. Inter Milan is the only Italian club never to be demoted due to scandal or match fixing.

Please do not make Mario Bolotelli a scapegoat in the Liverpool Real Madrid match. Yes the swapping of the jersey at half time was wrong and respectful. But would the fans and club make this same noise if Liverpool won 3-0? And mind you Liverpool defence is very bad, just one clean sheet in eighteen games tells it to you loud and clear what the problem is. Bolotelli has scored one goal , may I ask what Markovic, Lllana, Lovern have done, they cost more then Mario Bolotelli . EvenRicky Lambert has done nothing.Liverpool leave everything on poor Steven Gerrard to bail them out.
Brendan Rodgers the Liverpool manager should have really signed the Colombian striker Radamel Falcao Garcia from Monaco, instead of the proven ecentric Italian striker Mario Bolotelli, who always is in a mess on and of the pitch. He has yet to score a goal for Liverpool this sason. The former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has said Liverpool will be mario Bolotellis last chance, and he will be sold in the summer transfer window for sure. , Jamie
Antonio Rudiger the defender of the Germman club Strutgarrt, is wanted by Jose Mourinho to take up the central defender place, now held by John Terry. Jose Mourinho liked the pace, strength and attacking defender. But Jose Mourinho was in for a very rude shock. Antonio Rudiger has said that he has always been a fan of Arsene Wenger and Arsenal, with players like Theirry Henry and also Dennis Bergkamp .
Petr Cech who joined Chelsea in the year 2004 , and was first choice goalkeeper for Chelsea for over a decade. But now sadly he has lost his place as first choice goalkeeper this season. And Petr Cech has made it very crystal clear that he has no mind to play second fiddle to any other goalkeeper. He says his age and experience should be counted. It now looks more and more likely that he will join a Turkish club soon. It is reported that Chelsea and Besiktas have made a agreement between themselves so he will be off soon.
There is now doubt about it , that Liverpool are a shadow of what they were last year. The sale of Luis Suarez , Danielwas a big loss to Liverpool, and Daniel Sturridge frequent injuries are another factor. Liverpool spent big on defenders butwhat do we see here. Liverpool have kept just one clean sheet out of eightten games. That tells you all the story.
The Arsenal team were having both injururies as well as their top goalkeeper who was suspended for this match forgetting a red card against Galatasaray in Turkey. To make matters really worse for the Gunners , their second choice goalkeeper from Colombia David Ospina had injured ghis hand . That left this 21 year old Rookie goalkeeper Emillino Martinez to stand between the goalposts. And he did very well, he let in nly one goal, not bad at all. Arsenal won the match 2-1. With both Arsenal goals coming in the last ten minuteds.
Clubs do not understand that goalkeepers form also dips now and then, just like that of strikers. But what we must remember hee is that form may did now and then but Class is permanent. This season the Belgian goalkeeper Simon Mingnolet is not doing so well for Liverpool. But last year he did very well, in fact it was Simon Mingnolet and the two strikers Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, who took Liverpool from a whisker of the title. But now Liverpool are looking to sign the young Brazilian goalkeeper Neto , who plays in Italy with Fiorentina . Neto has refused to sign a new contract so far.
This fifteen year old goalkeeper at Andrelecht in Belgium has really got talent for a footballer so young. Some very big clubs have shown their interest in him, clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United and yes Arsenal as well. But it looks like Arsenal have taken a lead in the race for him.He has been invited to visit Arsenals famous training grounds. He is said to be the new Thibaut Courtios , the Chelsea goalkeeper, who has now dislodged Petr Cech as first choice goalkeeper at Chelsea.

Luis Adriano who plays for the club from Ukraine called Shaktar Donetsk wrote his name into the record books of the champion league. He now becomes the second footballer ever to score a total five goals in a single champion league match. The only other footballer toscore five goals in a single champion league match is Lionel Messi, who scored it for Barcelona. Luis Adriano scored the five goals in the champion league match between Bate and Shaktar Donetsk. But one thing which Luis Adriano did was score four of those goals in the first half onlt, the fifth goal was scored by a penalty in the second half. Lionel Messi in his champion league match took time to score goals in both halves.
They sat that Arsene Wenger , even though he has taken Arsenal to the champion league seventeen times in a trot not a mean achivement at all.Now that he is sixtyfive years old he may not win a champion league trophy . But as usual in football all things are possible. I will take you back to the year 1993 and the champion league winner was Olympique Marseille, their manager was 71 years old named Raymond Goethals, he was from Belgium. So if he can win it at 71 years others to can do it. Olympique Marseille defeated A.C.Milan in the final in the year1993.
This is the list of the top five goal scorers in the Champion league. 1 ) Raul Gonsalvez. Real Madrid. 71 Goals. 2) Lionel Messi. Barcelona. 69 Goals. 2) Cristiano Ronaldo. Manchester United and Real Madrid.69 Goals. 3) Ruud Van Nistelrooy,P.S.V Eindhoven., Manchester United. 56 Goals. 5)Henry . Arsenal and Barcelona. 50 Goals scored.
The Italian striker Mario Bolotelli is known to let big trouble follow him on and of the pitch. In the champion league match played between Liverpool and Real Madrid at Anfield.Real Madrid won 3-0. But what angered players and staff were the swapping of jerseys between Mario Bolotelli and Pepe at half time. This is not done anywhere , the jerseys are swapped only after the match, and not during half time. Not only is it wrong it is disgraceful and disrespectful as well. Brendan Rodgers did the correct thing by substitutting Mario Bolotelli. And he has said he will fine the Italian as well. Let me take your memory to last year, in a match played between Chelsea and Liverpool, Philippe Coutinho swapped his jersey at half time, and he was fined as well.
Arsenal have had very serious injury troubles,and expect them to be in the top four without a real striker is being silly. Oliver Giroud is out with a broken leg till say next year.So realistically speaking Danny Welbeck is their only striker. So it is reported in THE MIRROR that the former Real Madrid Argentinean striker Gonzalo Higuain , who was sold to Napoli a few years back. But this year sadly he is not amoung the goals, as we very well know him to be. So it is possible that Gonzalo Higuain could join Arsenal. As it is reported that Lukas Podolski may leave Arsenal as well.
Actually who will be the looser if and when Arsenal sack Arsene Wenger? Arsene Wenger has done a great job at Arsenal no doubt about it. I wonder which manager kept the club in the top four or in fact the Champion League for about seventeen years. Any manager in mind you Arsenal fans who want to sack Arsene Wenger. And he never does spend big either.Has built a new stadium the EMIRATE STADIUM. Everton, Liverpool, West Ham United , Chelseaand Tottenham Hotspurs are still trying to do it. And do not forget Arsene Wenger has been already offered a job at Monaco, with a five year contract, with a salary of 28 million pounds after tax deduction. So Arsenal think long and hard.
The U.E.F.A had punished C.S.K Moscow the Russian club, to play two champion league games behind closed doors. When playing under closed doors it clearly means no tickets can be sold and there can not be any spectators at the stadium, so indirectly the club will loose millions of pounds as no tickets can be sold. And now it is come to the notice of U.E.F.A that over two hundred fans sneaked into the stadium, and made themselves comfortable for the champion league. The Manchester City captain says it looks like Manchester City was the guilty party and punished. The Manchester City scored two goals one by Sergio Aguero and the second by James Milner. But C.S.K Moscow scored the two goals to force a draw. IS U.E.F.A LOOKING AT THE RUSSIAN CUB.WHAT WILL THEY DO ? C.S.Moscow should be thrown out of U.E.F.A for ten years.
Arsenal youth players dried up for a very short time, it is back in full swing. Daniel Crawley who is seventeen years old and plays as a midfielder, he was got from the Aston Villa youth academy. He is very much in the Jaack Wilshere class, a great dribbler, and most important holds his balance very well indeed. In the the match between Arsenal under 21 and Andrehlecht under 21, DanielCrawley was super, he scored a beautiful hat trick, letting Arsenal win the match with some real good dribbling and some of the goals were just needed watching.
The Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard , who has been asked to join Real Madrid , when the Spanish giants came knocking at his door. But he as always been a loyal one man club , that is Liverpool. For the matter Chelsea to came kinocking at his door in the year 2005. Liverpool fans were angry and burnt the famous jersey number eight, 8. But he says in THE METRO that when he looks at his glittering career , when it is well and trully over , he would very much rgret for not joining the famous Spanish giants.
According to THE METRO and THE DAILY MAIl, it says Arsene Wenger could be sacked as manager of Arsenal. And he could well be replaced by the Italian coach Carlo Anchelotti, who is at present the manager of Real Madrid. It just shows how stupid the Arsenal fans are they have very, very short memories. They have forgotten the F.A.Cup win and the Comunity Shield as well.

The Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling lied when he said he was to tired to play against Estonia,maybe the truth was Estonia was a small country. He was as tired as he claimed he was , then there was no need for him to party late into the night and you can say early morning. The party ended at 3 A.M. He was not there alone even, both Danny Welbeck and Alex Oxaldchamberlain were there.
U.E.F.A have taken serius action on clubs from both Champion League and Europea League as well. 1) The Turkish club Galatasaray were fined 40,000 pounds for their disturbence with flares at the Champion League at the Emirate Stadium. The Turkish club must also replace well over a hundred chairs, which were ripped off, after Arsenal won the match 4-1. 2) F.C. Basel were also fined 40,000 Euros or 31,600 pounds.For crowd trouble. 3)Feynoord were also fined 15,000 Euros for crowd trouble. 4) Standard Liege was fined 17,000 Euros or 13,890 Pounds , for crowd trouble in the Europea League.
It is reported in THE METRO , that Manchester United are willing to buy the Brazilian left back from Real Madrid, in the january transfer window. Real Madrid will buy the Bayern Munich left back David Alada. But Louis Van Gaal was indeed very ken to sign the Barcelona left back, Jordi Alba The question will now be the big price for the Brazilian.
Tottenham Hotspurs have now agreed to sell their French goalkeeper Hugo Loris, and they will be looking at several other goalkeepers to fill that slot. Tottenham Hotspurs are now looking at the goalkeeper from Toulouse , named Ali Ahamada, Tottenham Hotspurs are willing to pay the nine million pounds for the goalkeeper from Toulouse.
We are told over the years that the Spaniard Raul Gonzalez started from the youth academy and is a homegrown player of Real Madrid, but this is not at all the truth.The truth states in the Atletico Madrid register that Raul Gonsalvez was sold by the then president of Atletico Madrid Jesus Gil, who sold Raul to Real Madrid absolutely free. Jesus Gil must have had sleepless nights after that. Another player we are told is that AlexandroDel Piero, was from the youth academy of Juventus . But this is not true, he vame from a small club called Padova, he joined Juventus free.And when he finally gratuated from Juventus, the club were sure that this kid could play better then Roberto Baggio, and so Roberto Baggio was sold by Juventus.
On the match day eight of this seasons E.P.L saw a total of forty goals being scored, with brilliant goals, own goals, penalties as well. In fact this forty goals is sadly short of the record for the most goals scored in a weekend. The record still stands , and it was set in the year 1995 , when forty two goals were scored. The most rememerable was the match between Arsel and Newcastle United that ended at 4-4 draw.
Robin Van Persie is no longer the player he was when he moved from Arsenal to Manchester United, the figures each year show he is declining each year. In the year 2012/2013. He scored 8 goals for Manchester United, and two for Holland. 35 Goals in all. In the year 2013/2014.He scored 7 Goals for Manchester United and six Goals for Holland. 28 Goals in all. In the year 2014/2015. He scored 2 Goals for Manchester United and one Goal for Holland. It looks like age and injuries are taking a toll on him. Arsene Wenger made a big deal for him , he got him for 2.75 million pounds from Feynoord and sold him to Manchester United for twenty four million pounds.Just imagine that?
The Manchester City manager Manuel Peligreni , has told the club to pay Arsenal thirty two million pounds to buy the German midfielder Mezut Ozil. The main reason that he wants the German playmaker is to make him replace the Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya Toure. This season Yaya Toure is just not himself , has given trouble off the field over sall things like a birthday cake. But then where will Yaya Toure move on to? It is reported that both French clubs Monaco and P.S.G are indeed very keen to buy Yaya Toure, and they both have money.
Luis Suarez said that he really feared that his football career was well and trully over , after he got a four month ban from all football at the 2014 world cup in Brazil, for biting Georgino Cheilleinni. But he was talking for over a year for a transfer from Liverpool to Barcelona. His agent was Peire Guardiola, the brother of Pep Guardiola. He thought no football club would ever be intrested in buying him after he bit a football player for the third time. But he was a very relieved man when Peire Guardiola phoned him that the deal was done and dusted, only his signature was needed at Barcelona. He will be playing in the Elclassico , possibly the last one in Spain.

The Irishman Brendan Rodgers says he wants to be a manager of a Spanish football club. But he should very well remember that he must win a trophy to even dream of managing a big club in Spain. He will not get a chance at Real Madrid or Barcelona for sure. His choice of players for the club will not go well in Spain, Choosing Mario Bolotelli over Loic Remy , on lies that Loic Remy has knee and heart trouble was indeed unpardenable. Chelsea have taken Loic Remy ,only because he passed a medical at Chelsea, Loic Remy is doing much better then Mario Bolotelli is doing , where scoring goals are concerned. Brendan Rodgers says he is learning Spanish, so what that alone will not get him a job in a Spanish clubfor sure. He may get a job in the third tyre in Spain.
Real Madrid boast that they have the fastest footballers in the world playing for Real Madrid. It is made up of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez. But I would like to remind Real Madrid that other clubs playing in the Champion League are equally fast. 1) Arsenal , have Theoo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck.Aaron Ramsey to.
The Champion League match to be played between C.S.K Moscow and Manchester City will be played behind clsed doors. Manchester City will also be playing under very severe temperature of minus zero. Running will not be easy, vision will be hurting as well. C.S.K Moscow are serving playing two champion League matches under closed doors, for racial abusing a player. What ever is the score or who ever is the winner, just does not matter here as FOOTBALL here is the real looser. The punishment was given by U.E.F.A, this will be the first of two closed matches at C.S.K Moscow. It is anybodys guess what is the real loss for the Russian clun financially.
This is the most craziest week in English football for some time. There were 36 goals scoed Southampton scored 8-0 against Sunderland. Sergio Aguero scored all four goal for Manchester City against Tottenham Hotspurs. There were six penalties awarded. There were three Red Cards shown. There were four own goals as well. Arsenal drew with Hull 2-2 by a Danny Welbeck 90th minute goal. In the Liverpool and Queen Park Ranges match , Liverpool won 3-2 , with two own goals from Queen Park Ranger players.The Those four goals came in the last eight minutes, from the 87th minute to the 95th minute. The Newcastle United game was delayed as the big screen had trouble.
In the champion league match ,played between Arsenal and the Belgian club Andrelect . Arsenal will have absolute rookie of a goalkeeper called Emillino Marinez in goal. It sure comes as a surprise that a rookie playing in the champin league.\ The first choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is missing the match as he serves his one match ban, after a red card against Turkish club Galatasary. Their second goalkeeper the Colombian David Ospina is now injured, so it all will fall on Emillino Martinez . Let us hope the press and fans notice this, when critisising Arsene Wenger. Emjillino Martinez is from the Argentinean club Indepenta.He must have real good talent for Arsenal o bring him to their Academy .
Tottenhamk Hotspurs spent their money over a hundred million pounds , most got from selling Gareth Bale for eighty six million pounds. They got players like Paulinho, Erik Lamela , Robert Sooldado and others. Their only buy was Cristian Erikson and Hugo Loris. Now on the other hand Arsenal has spent a hundred million pounds on players , but they have spent it wisely on good players. Alexis sanchez,Danny Welbeck Mezut Ozil all were costly but all are among the goals for Arsenal.Robert

The former president of the French club Lyon , has said this. He said in the year 2009 the French striker at Lyon Karim Benzema rejected a deal to join Manchester United and Alex Ferguson as well. But it is nw revealed that Karim benzema then prefered to join the Spanish giants Real Madrid instead. Karim Benzema has been at Real madrid ever since 2009.
The Chelsea defender, captain and legend n the pitch , John Terry has now captained chelsea for game number five hundred. It is quite a record few can equal or for the matter pass it either. He has always been bold, brave and a very influential player on the pich. But sadly his life of the pitch is not so good .
On the last day of the summer transfer Danny Welbeck joined Arsenal for a sum of sixteen million punds. Now Danny welbeck was at manchester United from the age of eight years.He was a home grown player as well. But to sell him to the arch rival Arsenal was ridiculous ., as he will be a thorn in the side of Manchester United in their games. The former manchester United strikers Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke were very shocked at the done deal of Danny Welbeck, mind you Arsene Wenger was in Rome on the last day of the transfer. Even David Moyes was sad over the Danny Welbeck deal.As danny Welbeck is scoring goals now for Arsenal.
There is no doubt about it that the Italian is missing golden chances to score goals for Liverpool, just reminds us of Fernando Torres at Chelsea , does he not ? The only difference is the price of these two strikers, Chelsea paid Liverpool fifty million pounds, while Liverpool paid only sixteen million pounds to A.C.Milan. Mario Bollotelli has had 39 shots on the goal. He has scored one Goal. He has zero Assists. His last miss was against Queen Park Rangers, where he failed to score a gooal at a open goal. The goalkeeper was also on the floor. The Loic Remy incident will always haunt Brendan Rodgers.
In the summer there was a big exodus of players from Southampton to Livrpool manly. And there was a fear that Sopouthampton would be at the end of the table.But it is not so they are in the top five. And Mario Bolotelli was not the only failure at Liverpool . Let us look at these stastics. 1) Adam Llana and Ricky Lambert , against Pelle and Tadic at Southampton. 10 Games played. 411. Minutes. 1 Goal scored. 0 Assists. 4 Chances Created. Pelle And Tadic. 16 Games played. 1390 minutes. 7 goals scored. 8 Assists. 32 Chances created.
Arsenal are keen to buy the Croation footballer who plays his club football with Dinamo Zagreb, in Croatia. He is twentyone years of age, and a midfielfielder as well as a play maker. He was good, so his club gave him a seven year contract. It was reported that the Italian club Inter Milan was also intrested in him and had offered a sum of 3.4 million pounds for him, this was flatly refused by the Dynamo Zagreb club. Now it is said in THE METRO that Arsenal have doubled the offer for the play maker, Arsenal have now offered 6.8 million pounds for him. And he can score goals as well. He was also in the 2014 world cup in Brazil, he played there. So just compare the price of William Carvalho at Sporting Lisbon, the Portuguese club want 34 million pounds for him, his buy out clause.
It is reported in the press that Queen Park Rangers could very easily pocket a huge sum of fiteen million pounds. And that is only if Liverpool successfully sell Reeham Sterling to Real Madrid, in the summer. You may very well ask ,why ever should Queen Park Rangers profit so much for Sterling. As Reeham Sterling played for Queen Park Rangers as a boy , and was bought by Liverpool as a boy. Queen Park Rangers did put a clause in the sale deal of Reeham Sterling, it is a clause that still stands.Queen Park Rangers are suposed to get twenty five percent of the sale money from Liverpool. Now it is said that Real Madrid want to buy him for sixty million pounds, and so Queen Park Rangers will get their fifteen million pounds this way
Carlo Anchelotti the Real Madrid manager has flatly said that Real Madrid do not want Reeham Sterling, as they have Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos, James Rodriguez and others in that place. But Carlo Anchelotti has indeed made a open confesstion that he indeed wanted to sign Steven Gerrard from Liverpool, with the main intention of Steven Gerrard partnering Andres Pirlo at A.C.Milan. This was way back in the 2005 Champion League matchplayed between A.C.Milan and Liverpool. Liverpool were loosing 0-3. But won on penalties. In fact in 2005 Chelsea were also keen to buy Steven Gerrard, and the Liverpool fans burned the famous jersey number eigh,8.

It looks like the German midfielder Sami Khedira , will in the end be joining Arsenal after all inthe january transfer window. All the the time it was said that Chelsea had a good lead over Arsenal, for the Sami Khedira move. But then this has happened . SWami Khedira had long talks with Mesut Ozil and Per Mertsacker, two fellow Germans who play for Arsenal . And now they have convinced him how good Arsenal really is.In fact Arsenal have already agreed terms with him, the only thing remaining is to make a agreement with Real Madrid over their fee.

The big question asked is whose season ticket is the costliest one Real Madrid or Arsenal? And this will come as a shock to many readers. Real Madrid is far cheaper , then Arsenal. The Arsenal season ticket will be costing a huge 2, 013 pounds. While the Real Madrid season ticket will cost only 1,523 pounds. In other words you could easily fly to Madrid as yo are making a huge saving of 490 pounds.
It is repoted that the Brazilian born Spanish striker Diego Costa got injured again during the Euro 2016 qualifier. Yes I do agree he Diego Costa suffers from hamstring injuries often, even when he was in Spain with Atletico Madrid. But the big question is as Chelsea play Crystal Palace in the E.P.L, Jose Mourinho wants to keep Diego Costa fit for the champion League matches, he is capable of doing all these things.
The Brazilian right back Dani Alves is asking a huge weekly salary at Manchester United, in the january transfer window. He is asking a weekly salary of 250,000 pounds. But what we must take into note is that he is already thirty one years old now.A little to old to ask such a huge weekly salary.
Radamel Falcao Garcia he Colombian striker , who is on a one year loan at Manchester United from Monaco. It is now reported that Radamel Falcao Garcia has English roots. His great , great grandfather is from Yorkshire in England. So this is good news in a way, as he will be eligible to apply for a English passport o this ground alone.
It is reported in the press that the Brazilian defender will be leaving the Spanish giants Barcelona andjoin up with Manchester united in the E.P.L. But he is now thirtytwo years old, and he was not used much in the Brazilian team at the 2014 world cup in Brazil. But what about the punishment given to Barcelona by F.I. F.A. That Barcelona can not buy or sell a player for one full year.
In the Argentinean third tier football club match. The Argentineans are known to be hot headed, it was there for all to see. In the thirdtier match between Deportivo Roco , and Cipolleti, the two arch enemies on the pitch. It origanny started for a yelllow card shown to a player, but as he argued he was shown the second yellow card followd by a red card.A aponent from the other team chased him out of the pitch. Then the brawl started in earnest between the two clubs. The referee was soon loosing control of the game, he then was forced to show a total of ten cards. The match was finally abondened half way through the match only.
The Spaniard David De Gea , who plays his club football in England with Manchester United. According to THE METRO, Real Maidrid were very keen to sign David De Gea , and have him replace Iker Casillas, who is now thirtythree years old and passed his glory days. But aas he is a Spaniard they thought it would be easy to buy him from Manchester United. But it now apppears in another article in THE METRO,that David De Gea has agreed to a long five year contract at Manchester United, and the weekly salary of David De Gea will be a huge 120,000 pounds a week. Here is a player for a change rejecting his move to the Spanish giants Real Madrid.
The president of U.E.F.a Michael Platini wants to bring some changes in the U.E.F.A. The one change he wants to introduce is a white card, which is only for footballers who show decent to the referees. The penalty for getting one white card would be a ten minute absence from the pitch and game. Today they are shown the yellow card, which is technically to be shown by the referee for fouls comitted only.
Holland did very well at the 2014 world cup in Brazil, they even reached the Semifinals.And also won the bronze medal. But after the world cup , holland seem to just collapse , they had appointed Guus Hiddink as their manager, as their world cup manager Loius Van Gaal , took up a two year contract with Manchester Unted. Now they have just lost two of their matches while qualifying for the Euro 2016, which is to be played in France. Holland want to change their manager, and the one they have in mind is their former defender andfree kick specialist Ronald Koeman. The funniest thing is all the players are young and have played at the last world cup. Another thing to worry about here Ronqald Koeman is working as the manager at Southampton in England.

Jorge Jesus at Benfica says he regrets the day Angel Di Maria left Benfica for Real Madrid. He was always a pleasure to have at theclub, and always gave his very best for club and country. But it must have been money problems at the club Benfica. As both clubs in Spain and Portugal are having hard times. The European Union has bailed Spain and Portugal quite often. Angel Di Maria did very well at Real madrid, and is doing equally well at Manchester United. I feel that sixty million Manchester United paid for him was a real bargain.
Real Madrid have decided to offer twentyfour million pounds for the Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea at Manchester United ManchesterUnited got David De Gea from Atletico Madrid, by paying a huge price f eighteen million pounds. But the Spanish giants Real Madrid are looking to replace their old goalkeeper IkerCasilas, who is now doomed.He has beenmaking far to many blunders recentely.
Chelsea are quite sure that they can go the entire season without a loss, and be the new INVINCIBLES. But that happens once i8n a life time Mr Mourinho and not every ten years or so. Let me remind you that last year Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers thought the same thing, and Brendan Rodgers boasted by saying Catch us if you can . We saw what happened last year to Liverpool. In Italy A.C.Milan went undefeated a entire year in the 1980s, with Franck Raijkard, Marco Van Basten and Ruud Guilitt. No club has done it in Italy so far. All it will take is a few injuries to Diego Costa, and his bubble will burst. After all only seven games have been played so far, a long time to go Chelsea. So do not count your chickens before they are hatched.
In 2004 Arsenal became the first club to play a entire season , and be undefeated as well.No club has ever done it in England. Yes A.C.Milan have done it before. 1) Arsenal went 49 games without a defeat. 2)They scored 121 points out of 147 points. 3) Arsenal won 36 games. Drew 13 games . And lost 0. 4) Arsenal used 33 Different players in that season. 5) Arsenal scored 112 goals at Highburry. 6)Arsenal scored 35 goals away. 7)The top goal scorer for Arsenal was Theirry Henry with 38 goals and also 18 Assists. 8) Arsenal went 539 days or 77 weeks between those two defeats. 9) The defeat had to come with a penalty in the match betwen Arsenal and Manchester United. The referee was Mike Riley, and Sol Cambell gave that penalty , but replay showed no contact was made by Sol Campbell.
It is ten years since the footwall world was introduced to the football wizard Lionel Messi.He is now 27 years old. 1) He has made 248 Appearences for Barcelona. 2) He has made 245 starts at Barcelona. 3) He has played a total of 22,232 minutes at Barcelona. 4) He has scored 249 goals .And needs two goals to equal all time goal scorer Telmo Zarra with 251 goals. 5) Lionel Messi has 100 Assists. 6)Lionel Messi has 23 yellow cards .And no Red Cards. 7 Lionel Messi has still to get a red card at Barcelona, while Cristiano Ronaldo has got quite a few red cards at Real Madrid.
The otherday Luis Suarez was in Liverpool, and won the golden boot fromKenny Dalgalish. Steven Gerrard the long serving captain of Liverpool gave a very emotional speach. He clearly admitted the truth that Liverpool will always miss Luis Suarez, and that F.C.Bqarcelona are indeed lucky to have him. We can clearly see the number as well as the quality of goals which Liverpool are really missing this year, Kenny

In 1992 the Manchester United scouts told Alex Ferguson that there was a very talented player at Bordeauz worth seeing. So along with the scout Alex Ferguson flew to Bordeaux to watch this talented youngster play. After the match the scout asked Alex Ferguson what he thought of the youngster. Then Alex Ferguson said , He is not good enough to wear the famous jersey of the RED DEVILS, Manchester United. The player I am talking about is Zinedine Zidane, the player to win footballer of the year, three times. Zinedine Zidane slipped from Manchester United grip to play for Juventus and finally Real Madrid.
Arsenal have missed out on some great players, who did not get their work permit in England. But the Cristiano Ronaldo affair was lost to Manchester Uniteds cunningness. Arsene Wenger was keen to sign Cristiano Ronaldo , but Manchester united were equally keen to get him. So what Alex Ferguson did was to send his assistant manager Carlos Queiroz who happened to be Portuguese national like Cristiano Ronaldo, to convince him to join Manchester United for 12 million pounds. The deal was done and HISTORY was written for good.
In the year 1993 Arsene Wenger was very keen to get all three LA MASIA players, they were Lionel Messi , Cesc Fabregas and Gerrard Pique. He promised all three would get regular playing time at Arsenal. But the trouble was that Lionel Messi was not given a work permit. And you can say that the rest is HISTORY. Arsenal could not get a work permit for these famous playes as well. 1)Petr Cech. 2) Yaya Toure.
In the year 1992 the E.P.L top goalscorer Alan Shearer was was to join Manchester United . But Alex Ferguson and Manchester United took far to long to make up their minds. Alan Shearer then went and joined Blackburn Rovers, and in the year 1995 Blackburn Rovers won the E.P.L title, with goals from alan Shearer and Damien Duff. Blackburn Rovers are the only club besides Manchester United, Arsenal , Liverpool and Chelsea to win the E.P.L
The German midfielder Sami Khedira is wanted by Arsenal,but Real Madrid were waiting and looking about for a good replacement, so that Sami Khedira can move on. Now Real Madrid have contacted the Brazilian club Cruzeiro , to buy their midfielder Lcas Silva , it will cost the spanish giants fifteen million pounds to buy him. Once he joins Real Madrid Sami Khedira will be free to join Arsenal.

Dave Beasent the goalkeeper of Stevanage , is most likely the oldest goalkeeper to play football for qa club, he is now fiftyfive years while on the bench for the club. But his best time will be remembered as the goalkeeper for the club Wimbeldon , and in the year 1988. In the F.A cup final between Wimbeldon and Liverpool. Here he did well as the goalkeeper of Wimbeldon, he saved a penalty and so Liverpool were defeated.
There is no doubt that a s3eason ticket in England for a E.P.L match is far costlier then in Spain orGermany. 1) Arsenal season ticket is 1,014 Pounds. 2) Manchester City season ticket is 299 Pounds. 3) Real Madrids season ticket is 174. Pounds. 4) Bayern Munich season ticket is 110 Pounds. 5) Barcelona season ticket is 103Pounds. So Barcelona have the cheapest season ticket it is 103 Pounds only.
Liverpool are now looking for another goalkeeper, as their hopes of signing the former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has now collapsed completely. So now they are looking in Spain for the goalkeeper from Espanyol, called Kiko Casilla. Now Espanoyol have put the selling price of this goalkeeper at eight million pounds. Liverpool were keen to get a goalkeeper to chalenge Simon Mingnolet.As Victor Valdes was 32 years and had a serious knee injury,he was always going to be a doubtful buy.
Jose Mourinho always likes to taunt Arsene Wenger , he calls him a looser. But would Jose Moutrinho even dare to get a young player from the tsecond or third tyre and polish a player? Never. Jose Mourinho will only join a rich club with pots of money to spend on players, it is easy to buy players for 30 million pounds and win trophies. Look at these polished stars did. 1) Ian Rush joined Liverpool from Chester. 2)Stuart Pearce Played for Wealdstone. 3) Roy Keane played for Nottingham Forest. 4) Eric Cantona played for Leeds United. Would Jose Mourinho find a unpolished diamond and shine him. The answer is never .
Bayern Munich are just as rich as Real Madrid or MManchester United, their total money earned is 417 million pounds, this year it was a profit of thirteen million pounds. And what is good about it is that they are not in debt like Real Madrid and Manchester United. And they have paid back the money taken to build their famous Allianz stadium, for the world cup in Germany. At the same time Bayern Munich pay their manager the highest yearly fee to a manager it is thirteen million pounds in the world. Bayern Munich also sell the most jerseys amoung all the German clubs.
This is the honest truth from the horses mouth. Carlo Anchelotti has now said why was Angel Di Maria sold by Real Madrid to Manchester United. The truth is it was all about money, money makes the world go round Carlo Anchelotti. Angel Di Maria wanted his weekly salary to be increased by Real Madrid, of course when you go and give crazy weekly salaries to players like Cristiano ronaldo, Sergio Ramos and others. Other players to will ask for it. Here we must not forget Real Madrid are roughly five hundred million pounds in debt, and that is scarry. So we can say manchester United got a bargain, after all he has made Manchester United tick.
Yes this is still october and the january transfer window is still far away. But still the rumours are there. According to THE METRO, it appears Chelsea have taken the lead over Arsenal in the Sami Khedira move. Now even though Sami Khedira wants to join Arsenal, He could very well join Chelsea in the E.P.l in the end. It is reported that the Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech will be used as a pawn in this transfer deal. So let us see what does happen in january, will Petr Cech replace Iker Casillas at Real Madrid?
The Radamel Falcao Garcia moe to Manchester United was on a year long loan only, but Manchester United are keen that the transfer is made permanent for fortythree million pounds. But now Monaco have said that Manchester United can very well have Radamel Falcao Garcia, but on this term only and that is, the Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will move the other way on a permanent deal as well. Will both clubs agree to this is to be seen now.
In the Spanish third tyre football team. A player was shown a yellow card because he ran out into the crowd to kiss his girl friend. People said that the referee should have been lenient on the Spanish player. But let us see what the F.I.F.A rules say.And why do they get a yellow card. They get a yellow card as the rule is there because of this. In some football stadiums is surrounded by running tracks, so the studds of the football boots spoil the tracks badly. Arjen Robben got a yellow card because he went on the tracks during his Chelsea days.

The Italian owner of A.C.Milan Sylvio Bersculonni , says Mario Bolotteli wasa rotten apple, capable of spoiling the entire team.And he was bought against his wishes from Manchester City. And he is not missed one bit , after he was sold to Liverpool for sixteen million pounds. But let us see what Mario Bolotelli did at A.C.Milan shall we. He played for A.C.Milan fromjanuary 2013. To August 2014. He played a total of fiftyone games for A.C.Milan. He scored a total of twentynine goals. He picked up twenty yellow cards and one red card in that time. But A.C.Milan have got Fernando Torres on a years loan, Fernando
The French central defender Raphael Varane was very much on the verge of joining the English giants Manchester United. But in came along Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid too sign up Raphael Varane in 2012. And it now looks quite possible that Raphael Varane could be on the move again, and this time it is Chelsea with Jose Mourinho . He will be a long time replacement for the Chelsea captain John Terry The real reason Raphael Varane rejected Manchester United in 2012 was they had just signed Phil Jones
Chelsea are looking very seriously at a few players to be along time alternative to John Terry as a central defender. Chelsea are looking mainly at these two central backs Raphal , AntonioVarana at Real Madrid and Antonio Rudigeri from Struttgart, in Germany. Let us all be honest here John Terys days are over for the country and it will be over soon for Chelsea as well. When age catches up with him, more mistakes will be made, like we saw it with Rio Ferdinand last year.

Diego Costa the Brazilian born footballer , who decided to play for Spain instead at the 2014 world cup in Brazil. He was a super flop at the world cup and was a flop for Spain as well. While playing for Chelsea he has scored nine goals in seven games so far. But he broke his duck for Spain at last , he scored his first goal for Spain after a long span of 516 minutes, a very long time indeed.

Before the 2014 world cup in Brazil , the German coach Joechiam Low told Mesut Ozil to improve to be selected for Germany. He was selected for Germany, so he was good. In the summer it revealed that Pep Guardiola offered to buy Mezut Ozil , but the price was far to little only 32 million pounds, Arsene enger rejected it.
It is indeed very sad the great EL CLASICO or THE CLASIC , matches played between the two Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid could well be a thing of the past by early november. The reason for this sad state of affairs is that the Spanish area Catalonya is seeking a referendum on 9/11/2014 of finding out if Catalonya will seek and get independence, something like Scotland did recently. But what are the consquences of Catalonya getting independence? Barcelona will be no longer allowed to play football in the Spanish La Liga, as it will be a independent country, so Barcelona and Espanyol , Barcelona sister club will loose their place in the La Liga. Spanish football will be boring a predictable who will win the title, yes it will be Real Madrid. Now Barcelona according to THE METRO is thinking of joining France Lige. Champion League to will be boring, as Barcelona is the only club in Champion League history to appear each year since the Champion League started in 1950, some record. Barcelona was the only club till recentely not to have a sponsor on it , they did not have a single sponsorer for 111 years, just think about it. Barcelona was the club that sponsored U.N.I.C.E.F for five years, giving U.N.I.C.E.F 25 million pounds.

And to make matters worse Franck Lampard will leave Manchester City in january , to join the M.L.S inthe U.S.A. So a ne footballer of skill would be desired to have got in the summer. There are two footballers iin the minds of Manchester City, as they feel Yaya Toure is not playing like he was playing earlier fo City. One player is the French youngster Paul Pogba , who now plays at Juventus , also called THE OLD LADY OF TURIN.But he will cost sixty million pounds. The other player in their mind is the Newcastle player Chiek Tiote, who will cost only 16 million pounds, as Tiote has said he will not be playing for Newcastle United next year.

The Turkish fans are a plain nuisence all over Europe.They light flares, and last year the Turkish club Fenerbanche fans bursted crackers in front of the hotel where the Arsenal players were staying, it went on whole night , they thought it would affect the Arsenal players, but it did not Arsenal knocked them out of the Champion League then. This year it was the turn of another Turkish club Galatasaray, to behave badly , they lighted flares at the Emirate Stadium, and this destroyed over a hundred seats, the reason being Arsenal won the match 4-1. Now to add insult to injury stupid U.E.F.A want to fine Arsenal for the unrest. Can you imagine it. Galatasaray fans would not even listen to Wesley Sneijder who was pleading for the fans to behave. Turkish cliubs must be banned for at least three years from all champion league matches.
The German world cup winner and their holding midfielder has at last decided to join up with Arsenal in the january transfer window. Arsenal were after him all through the summer transfer window, but the thing that kept the two clubs apaty was the huge weekly salary demanded by Sami Khedira, he actually wanted a weekly salary of 150,000 pounds, something Arsene Wenger would never agree to. As you see he was getting only 50,000 pounds a week.So in other words he is asking three times his wages. Arsenal then tried to buy a Sporting Lisbon midfielder, but his buy out clause was a huge 32 million pounds. Now Arsenal will only have to settle the selling price with Real Madrid, but the fee is not expected to be very high as he will be a free agent in the summer, and then he will move free. Sami Khedira is not getting a starting place due to James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos who are first choice at Real madrid.

They have already played their Champion League match verses Bayern Munich under closed doors. And they will play Manchester City on 21/10/2014 under clodsed doors as well. Last year the same club was fined very heavily by U.E.F.A for racially abusing Yaya Toure.
According to THE METRO , Manchester United have at last realized that Cristiano Ronaldo is not only to old but also to expensive to invest in buying as well as the high weekly salary.

But the big question is will Real madrid sell him, ? Gareth Bale is having trouble at Real madrid with James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos, getting the starting places.

It now looks more and more unlikely that the former star at manchester United Crisiano Ronaldo will be joining them in the summer. Yes they have kept sixty million pounds seperate for him. But as he had signed a new contract at Real Madrid , so compensation will be very high indeed. And what about his yearly wages , it stands out at 20, twentuy million pounds a year, far to much for any player. And he will be thirty years old in Ferbrury next year.. To old , with frequent injuries as if now he will be getting injured more often after thirty years.
According to THE METRO , Liverpool were told by the Spanish giants Real Madrid , that they can very well buy their French striker Karim Benzema, the price is said to be thirtyeight million pounds. And it looks like Liverpool have agreed to this amount, and want him in a big hurry to. The reason being they Liverpool spent sixteen million pounds on the Italian striker Mario Bolotelli, but he has scored just one goal for Liverpool in six games. Liverpool are very keen to finish the deal and get karim Benzema by the first of january. But with manchester United willing to buy Cristiano Ronaldo as well, will Real Madrid sell their two main strikers in one year?
It is no secret that Arsene Wenger the manager of Arsenal has a gift to recogignize real good young talent. for example Yaya toure and Petr Cech were spotted very early but faied o join Arsenal due to not getting a work permit. Lionel Messi to was inches away from joining Arsenal when he was a sixteen year old boy at the Barcelona youth team. In fact Arsene wenger had talks with Jorge the father of Lionel Messi as he was still a minor then.Everything was agreed to salary as well as the terms he wanted. But then The Home office in England refused to give Lionel Messi a visa to come to England. Arsenal tried very hard. but failed. The reason could be that Lionel Messi is a Argentinean, qand the Faulkland war with Argentina was fresh in their minds. But Lionel Messi was then given his big break by Franck Riajkard in the year 2004. And the rest is history. So it is not only the millions of pounds that count or the club , so next time please be patient on managers. Actually Arsenal were keen on all three players even though they got Cesc Fabregas they failed to get Gerrard Pique and Lionel Messi.

It is fact Arsenal are more careful when spending their money on players as well as on their weekly wages.. 1) Manchester United had spent 31,thirtyone million pounds on a defender , they got Luke Shaw from Southampton, mind you he was bought by Louis Van Gaal himself. He now says he is not worth it.And he has not played much. Luke Shaw gets a weekly salary of 90,000pounds weekly. 2) Arsenal got Calum Chambers , from Southampton for eight million punds, but Calum Chambers gets aweekly salary of 40,000pounds only. But Calum Chambers yhas done very well as he has filled the shoes of Thomas Vermaelan who was sold to Barcelona. And both these players are only ninteen.,
The big question on every bodys mind is who really got the better deal Arsenal with danny Welbeck or Liverpool with Mrio Bolotelli. Both these players did cost sixteen million pounds. Arsene Wenger and the fans were keen that arsenal got Mario Bolotelli , from A.c. Milan. While Brendan Rodgers rejected Loic Remy , with false excuses saying Loic Remy had a heart problem and a knee problem, so he had failed the medical. Chelsea picked up Loic Remy very cheap indeed. But asDanny Welbeck was told by Louis Van Gaal , that he had no plans for Danny Welbeck,, Arsene Wenger got danny Welbeck , even while he was at Rome., on the last day for sixteen million pounds.Manchester United needed the funds to buy Angel Di Maria. So let us see who got the better deal, shall we. Danny Welbeck 5 Games. 436 minutes played. 17 shots on the goal.Scoring Accurecy 52.78. Goals 4. Mario Bolotelli. 6 Gamres. 490 Minutes. Shots at Goal. 19.. Scoring Accurecy. 44.23. Goals 1. So this will tell you who is better. And mind you Danny Welbeck has scored a Hat Trick for Arsenal in the Champion League as well for Arsenal.
