All hopeful football prodigy's need not be a success at their clubs. They may have great talent but possibly the pressure was to much.Take the few of them here. 1) Nicolas Bendtner. Arsenal. 2) Fredrick Macheida. Manchester United. 3) Anderson. Manchester United. In fact Anderson after staying in England for eight long years, he even refused to learn a single word of English. So the Norweign prodigy martin Odegaard need not be a wonder kid at Real Madrid either , time will tell.
It is reported in the L, EQUIPE that Arsenal are in the mood to sign a very proven striker at the club , mainly after both Lukas Podolski left on a loan to Italy with Inter Milan and Joel Campbell on a loan with the Spanish club Villarreal. Well who do you think the press is talking about at the closing days of the January transfer window? He is the Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic , who had made a name for himself at Bayern Munich, and who was got at Atletico Madrid to fill the shoes of the departed Diego Costa , who joined Chelsea for over thirty two million pounds. It also said that Arsenal are willing to pay the 26, twenty six million pounds in his buy out clause. But what we must remember here is that Atletico Madrid are in debt of about ninety million pounds or so, and are forced to sell their players against their will.

Arsenal have finally signed Gabriel Paulista , from the Spanish club Villarreal, also called the Yellow Submarines, as they play in a all yellow kit, after the song made famous by the Beatles. Gabriel Paulista is a Brazilian footballer, a central defender, but who has not played as yet for Brazil. The price is said to be eleven million pounds. Arsenal did have trouble where this transfer was concerned, as he was not having a work permit, and was not from the E.U country. And in the part of the transfer was that the Costa Rican striker Joel Campbell would join Villarreal ona season long loan.
The disciplinary panel which judged the crazy behavior of Cristiano Ronaldo on the pitch verses Cordoba. Here he slapped a player punched another and even kicked him, but what was the punishment given to him. It is absolutely disgusting on the part of the panel as they gave him just a two match ban, just because he was Cristiano Ronaldo and a Real Madrid player. The biggest culprit here is the referee who calmly says that he never saw the incident , only showed the red card for kicking.But we can see it on T.V. in India, and there were actually four referees on the pitch, any one could have brought it to the referees notice, shame on these so called referees, who are paid per game. Would lionel Messi or for the fact Luis Suarez from Barcelona be given two match bans if they did the same thing? I doubt it they would give them lengthy bans for sure. The rules clearly say if a player gets a straight red card he must miss three matches, and one match if he is shown a red card after two yellow cards. Is Ronaldo fit to be role model for boys as Ball on D or winner?

Now Real Madrid are being investigated by F.I.F.A for signing young footballers under age according to F.I.F.A. The F.I.F A rules say that a footballer must be eighteen years old before he can sign for a club. Otherwise the boy must be between sixteen to eighteen years, and must come from the European Union , then the parents of the boy must move to where the club is , for example here, the parents should move to Madrid, for none footballing reasons. The reason could be that these boys at a tender age could miss their parents. But signing boys of twelve years is not allowed in any way. Barcelona had signed a fourteen year old boys from South Korea and Nigeria . So Barcelona were punished from buying or selling players for a year. Here fifty one youngsters are being investigated at Real Madrid.
The french footballer Philippe Mexes who is 32 years old and plays for A.C.Milan in Italy. n the match between A.C.Milan and Lazio , Philippe Mexes was shown a straight red card for holding the throat of the Lazio captain Steffano Mauri. He now faces a three match game. But in the E.P.L where the referees are blind bats such punishments are not there. For example in the match betwen Arsenal and stoke City, the Stoke player Charlie Adams was strangling Alexis Sanchez , but not even a yellow card was shown. So the standard of refereeing is indeed very poor in England.
A lot of talk as going around the football world that Arsenal is only a one man team, and the man was the Chilean Alexis Sanchez. But nothing could be further from the truth here, in fact a total of eighteen Arsenal players have scored goals from strikers, midfielders, wingers as well as defenders. Aston Villa come second with seven goal scorers.
Barcelona are reported to terminate their sponsors Qatar Airways, it pays Barcelona a huge sum yearly which is thirty million pounds. Barcelona till the year 2010 , was the only football club in the world that did not have sponsorer . In fact Barcelona would pay UNICEF twenty five million pounds for five years, at five million pounds a year for five years. In fact Barcelona still have the UNICEF LOGO on the back of their jerseys.
First it was one Spanish giant Barcelona who had signed young footballers , at the age of twelve years .Barcelona were punished for breaking F.I.F.A rules, and were told that they would not be allowed to buy or even for that matter sell a footballer from the January transfer window of 2015 to the next January transfer window of 2016. Now it is the turn of the other Spanish giant to break the same F.I.F.A rules. According to THE DAILY MAIL , Real Madrid have signed two twelve year old boys from Venezuela, and loaned them to anther Spanish youth club. Now the big question I ask is whether Real Madrid will face the same punishment as Barcelona. Or will they get away with it just because they are REAL MADRID.

The Real Madrid star has really fallen low, his acts were unacceptable and really unpardonable by either F.I.F.A, U.E.F.A or for the matter Real Madrid. He completely lost his marbles on the pitch, in the match between Real Madrid and Cordoba , which ended 2-1 in Real Madrid's favor largely to a late penalty scored by Gareth Bale. Cristiano Ronaldo first punched then slapped and finally kicked his own Real Madrid defender. No matter what the mistake is the F.I.F.A rules do not allow you to hit and kick a player. He should get five match ban straight away. Wel people always compare Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the best player, and here the Cristiano Ronaldo fans will be surely upset here as Ronaldo has got a few red cards while Lionel Messi has yet to get a red card at Barcelona in thirteen years The frustration was that the former flop of Manchester United BEBE outshown Cristiano Ronaldo in the match for Cordoba.

There is no secret about it the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger always had talent in spotting young talent.But he could not do so because of some reason or the other.For example he list is long Cristiano Ronaldo chose Manchester United got Cristiano Ronaldo as Alex Ferguson had Carlos Querios as his assistant, who was from Portugal, who flew to Lisbon to convince him to join Manchester United. 1) Angel Di Maria at 17 and free , but could not get a work permit. 2)Yaya Toure. He to could not get a work permit. 3) Petr Cech. He to could not get a work permit. 4) Lionel Messi.

The German club Hamburg were also keen to buy him , but Arsenal made a second bid which was accepted by the club. The young boy is called Krysta in Bielik, and was got for a sum rumored to be 2.4 million pounds.
As there is now doubt about it that Atletico Madrid are in debt and so sell their players like Diego Costa and others. But now hope has come to the Spanish club in the from of the Chinese billionaire Wang Jianlin, who has made his money from real estate sales. Now Mr wang Jianlin has gone and invested twenty percent of his money stake at Atletico Madrid That will account to 45 million Euros, or 52 million Dollars or 34 million pounds.
It is indeed hard to believe that a club of the class of A.C.Milan are indeed facing financial problems in a very big way. A.C.Milan are a indeed Elite club giants in Italy and Europe. For a little bit of their past they have won the Seire A , as well as winning the Champion League seven times, second only to Real Madrid's ten wins. In the ninetys with the flying Dutch men Rudd Gullit, Marco Van Bastien and Franck Raijkard A.C. Milan went a entire season undefeated , they were the invincible s. Paolo Maldini won five champion league cups, footballers long to play in at least five matches. Now sadly things are not looking bright at A.C.Milan, they are not in the Champion League or Europa League this year, as they finished eighth last year. The present squad is assembled from buying players on loan or as free agents or from their youth academy . Now A.c Milan have sold their famous team bus as well to generate a sum of 230,000 pounds.

Oliver Kahn the former German and Bayern Munich goalkeeper , has admitted that Sir Alex Ferguson wanted to sign him up in 1994, but he decided to join Bayern Munich instead, where he played for fourteen years. And Alex Ferguson has never forgiven him for that. Now Oliver Kahn is the only goalkeeper ever to win the F.I.F. footballer of the year, and Fabio Canavarro is also the only defender to win the footballer of the year. Peter SchMichel was Manchester Uniteds goalkeeper in that famous 1999 Champion League final played against Bayern Munich, with Oliver Kahn in the goal. In 1999 Manchester United won the treble, Manchester United won the Champion league final with two late goals from Ole Guner Solzaer. Peter SchMicheal the Big Dane as he was called said Oliver Kahns move to Manchester United would have been a nice experience for him, and nobody says no to Alex Ferguson.
As Lionel Messi has a two hundred million pound buy out clause on his contract. And Manchester United have difficulty with cash.Their rescuer has come in a strange way. Adidas who are the sponsors for Manchester United next year are willing to shell out huge amounts of money to help in both the buying out of Lionell Messi from Barcelona as well as paying his wages. But let us not get to excited here as Lionel Messi has said he is very happy at Barcelona. The other concern is the FINANCIAL FIR PLAY RULES , which may not allow a third party owning a particular player . After all this could be a publicity stunt by Adidas.

It looks more and more likely that Arsenal will finally get their man Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton for a fee of twenty five million pounds.From Southampton. But at the same time it looks more and more likely that the buy and transfer will be done in the summer transfer window. It is also said that these two clubs, Arsenal and Southampton have already agreed to the terms of the sale.
The Italian club Udinesse , were the first club to have faith in the young Chilean footballer Alexis Sanchez, and they got him for a very small fee of just two million pounds from his Chilean club.

He was then sold to Barcelona in Spain for a then huge fee of twenty five million pounds. He was then sold to Arsenal for a fee rumored to be between thirty and thirty five million pounds. So those two million pounds were just peanuts.

Now Manchester United want to Buy Gareth Bale for fifty million pounds , and give David De Gea for fifty million pounds as well. Manchester United even offered David De Gea a weekly salary of 140,000 pounds , if he did sign the new contract and stay at Manchester United.

There is no doubt about it TE BALLON dOR has become a dirty politic joke. Because it will be a Spanish club winner next year.And some footballers who are worthy winners will never get it.

Last year Franck Ribery the French footballer said that the previous winner Cristiano Ronaldo won the Ballon D Or even after he won the three titles in Germany with Bayern Munich, Ronaldo failed to win a single title with Real Madri that year he won the Ballon D Or..

The Media say that Barcelona are a club in crisis, and Lionel Messi would be leaving his boyhood club Barcelona for Chelsea. Nothing could be further away from the truth here. If Barcelona were in crisis they would not be winning matches this way. They won their Copa Del RAy match with Elchi with a 5-0 win with Neymar, Messi Luis Suarez all adding to the goals. They then beat the reigning champions Atletico Madrid 3-0 With goals from Neymar, Lionel Mesi and Luis Suarez.Last year Barcelona failed to win a match against Atletico Madrid in six meeting, and Lionel Messi failed to score a single goal in six games. Rumors have it that Lionel Messi has demanded that Luis Enrique be sacked,but Lionel Messi says he has no power to hire and fire anybody.The people think that Lionel Messi is running Barcelona, which could not be further from the truth he says.It was the president who called fresh elections , and not Lionel Messi. Lionel Messi says he can not keep denying each and every story going around the press. The stories started when Lionel Messi was on the bench for the match against Real Socidead , the reason for that was that he and Neymar were given a few days more for their winter brake, and so may not have been match fit. Now the press say Barcelona will be willing to sack their coach Luis Enrique to keep Lionel Messi happy, what utter nonsense , as Lionel Messi will never ask any coach to be sacked.

The young Belgian footballer Junior Malanda , who played for Belgium in the under 21.

Death played a cruel hand , when Junior Malanda was killed in a car crash on 10/1/2015 in Germany, his car went and hit a tree , causing intent death.
Chelsea have distanced themselves from all the rumors going around the football world, thanks to the Media, who have nothing else to do but fill each page of the newspaper. Chelsea have clearly come out and said that they are not interested in buying Lonel Messi at all. After all it would cost Chelsea a very huge five hundred million pounds to buy him. That would be two hundred million pounds to pay Barcelona in Lionel Messi buy out clause, and his wages for a five year contract would come to another huge sum of three hundred million pounds. In other words most of the Chelsea players would be sold and Jose Mourinho shown the door as well.
In the E.P.L match between Manchester United verses Southampton, played on 11/1/2015, Manchester United had all sorts of problems both on and off the pitch. Radamel Falcao Garcia was dropped from the squad to face Southampton, this lead to Radamel Falcao leaving the stadium in his car . While on the pitch it was a horrible day for Manchester United not only did they loose the match by a single goal , scored byTadic , who netted the ball after it came of the post. Now in the match Manchester United failed to have a single shot at the goal in the entire match, quite shocking.The last time this happened was way back in 1997. This was a clash of two Dutch managers Ronald Koeman of Southampton and Louis Van Gaal of Manchester United, and Ronald Koeman won handsomely. It was a very big win for Southampton , as they won a match at OLD TRAFFORD after a long period of twenty seven long years.In other words a generation of players changed at Southampton for this big win.

Manchester United have gone and signed up former Barcelona and Spain goalkeeper Victor Valdez , as a free agent. But mind you he is coming back from a major knee injury, in fact Liverpool did not sign him up as he had not yet recovered fully, the deal is for eighteen months only. Now their main goalkeeper David De Gea has only eighteen months to go on his contract, and he is in no hurry to sign a new one. In fact there are talks that Real Madrid want him to replace Iker Casillas, their long serving goalkeeper at Real Madrid. Manchester United are willing to release their other goalkeeper , sell him to aScandinabvian club. louis Van Gaal also wants to get the Dutch goalkeeperTim Krul from Newcastle United.
The award of the Ballon D Or , is just plain boring these days. Each year itcomes to the final three of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and another player. They have completely forgotten Thomas Muller , of Bayern Munich and Germany. In the 2010 world cup Thomas Muller won the Golden Boot , even after being suspended for a match. In the 2014 world cup he scored some goals as well , and also won the world cup for Germany after a gap of twenty four years. And with Bayern Munich he won the treble cups.And he contributed in all of them with his goals. And he is not in the last three this year.
The press have started stories that Lionel Messi will be leaving Barcelona for Chelsea, and sone even said Jose Mourinho had even met Jorge , the father and agent of Lionel Messi. They even said Chelsea were being willing to pay the buy out clause of 200 million pounds for Lionel Messi. What is laughable here is that F.C.Barcelona are banned from either buying or selling a player from January 2015 to January 2016. Chelsea abide by the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES, they sold David Luiz and others to get Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas. To get Lionel Messi more than half the Chelsea players would be forced to be sold.A player costing two hundred million w, wil have a weekly salary of roughly 500,000 pounds . And Jose Mourinho has clearly said Chelsea can not afford to buy Lionel Messi.

The big question on everybody's mind now a days is why did Steven Gerrard leave Liverpool ? After all it was his boyhood club, and he was very proud of his achievements at the club.Yes only the E.P.L win was missing.And mind you he played over seven hundred games for Liverpool. But then why did he leave, even when Chelsea came knocking at his door in 2004 , after deep thought he flatly rejected Chelsea s offer. But the reason appears to be that Brendan Rodgers told Steven Gerrard that he would have to play as a part time player, and ths proud footballer was not having anything of that.
