From these three goalkeepers in the E.P.L this season , the one to keep the most clean sheets is the Belgian goalkeeper Simon Mignolet of Liverpool. Yes this may come as a very big surprise to many of football fans , in fact he has kept more clean sheets then Thibaut Courtis of Chelsea or even for the matter David De Gea of Manchester United. He was very guilty of making big blunders in the goal , he even lost his place to Jones at Liverpool. 1)Simon Mignolet has nine clean sheets. 2)David De Gea. has seven clean sheets. 3) And Thiabuat Courtis has kept seven clean sheets. Nobody would believe this early in the E.P.L.
There is no doubt about in the summer transfer window the two most wanted footballers will be Frenchman Paul Pogba and the German Marco Reus. In fact Paul Pogba left Manchester United for the OLD LADY OF TURIN Juventus. And he now has a buy out clause of eighty million pounds.Mind you he is very young about twenty years old only. While on the other hand Marco Reus is very good no doubt about it, but he has a big major draw back he is a injury prone player no doubt , he even missed the world cup 2014 in Brazil.
The dutch midfielder Kevin Strootman , who plays his club football in Italy with A.S.Roma. Now he was a wanted very badly last summer by the Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal. But sadly he got injured and the desire to buy him was shelved by Manchester United. But now the club doctor at A.S Roma Dr Mario Brozzi has stated that he feels that Kevin Strootman will never ever make a complete recovery from that knee problem. It is indeed very sad for Kevin Strootman, A.S Roma, and for football as a whole.
In the year 2003/2004 Arsenal did what players, fans and managers only were only dreaming about , of going a entitre season undefeated or 38 games. That year Arsenal got 90 points , scored 73 goals and let in only 26 goals. Thierry Henry was top scorer with 30 goals. It all started for Arsenal with a 2-1 win over Everton, and it ended at Leicester City with a score of 2-1. The only other club to go a entire season was Preston North End, in the year 1888. But that was during the old club days and the E.P.L had not been formed.
Brooklyn Beckham the oldest son of David Beckham , who had joined the Arsenal academy, at first he did show signs of real talent in him. But he even was promoted to the 15 to 18 age team. But sadly things are not going as was expected or what people hoped for, he now is not been given scholarship at Arsenal now. Well he could retire from the Arsenal academy but all may not be lost as he could join another clubs academy you see. You see fame and money will not help you here at Arsenal, you will ned a lot of talent here.
The Italian club Parma are indeed facing financial problems of a big size one to. For example Parma a two time U.E.F.A cup winner has a debt of 197 million Euros or 226 million pounds.They have total of 226 players in their record books. And the match between Udinese is postponed as Parma can not pat the stewards. They can not even afford hot water at the club. So they could well have points deducted and fall to the bottom of the table, and anyway they are already at the bottom so could they go to the third or even forth division now. This club produced great players like Gianlughi Buffon, Hernon Crespo, Fabio Canevaro, Gianfranco Zola. Hernon Crespo their youth trainer says these yung players have cold showers after a natch and get sick all the time as well. But who is to blame here?
This season the Arsenal midfielder Santi Carzola has scored six penalties out of six penalties in the E.P.L. The only club that comes closer to Arsenal is Manchester City with five penalties being scored. Now what has to be taken into notice is that in Manchester City case there have been more than one penalty taker to score those five goals. No club have scored six penalties this season so far by a single player scoring it .
The Spanish footballer Santi Carzola , who plays his club football in England with Arsenal. He joined Arsenal from Malaga in Spain, he had earlier joined Malaga from Villarreal for eleven million pounds.. He helped to bring Malaga into the champion League by letting the club come forth in the table that year. But in the year 2012 Arsenal came knocking at the door of Malaga , for him, the reason they were forced to sell Santi Carzola was that Malaga had over spent and were forced to sell him to Arsenal to generate the funds. The reason the Malaga fans are angry with him is that he never said a proper goodbye to the many Malaga fans. He has now apologized to those fans. By the way he has really done well at Arsenal scoring goals as well as assisting his team mates.

It now looks like Louis Van Gaal is keen to send the club favorite James Wilson a chance to develop further as there is no doubt that he is greatly talented. And Hull City Derby County and Middelsbrough have already taken keen intrest o get him on loan. As it is reported that Manchester United are looking for a new striker he may not get any starting place next year for sure. There was a report in the media that Manchester United want to buy the Polish striker Rober Lewndowski from Bayern Munich for a sum of thirty million pounds or so.
It is indeed very sad that the famous Italian football club Parma is in a very bad state financially they have just 40,000 Euros or for the matter 29,700 pounds. This club produced famous footballers like Gianlugi Buffon, Fabio Canavaro , GianFranco Zolo and Hernen Crespo. Hernon Crespo who is the coach of the youth team says that the players can not have any money to provide hot water, players have a cold shower anf keep getting sick as well. Now the manager of the club the former A.C. Milan player Roberto Donodoni has got problems to as the club can not pay the stewards , so the match between Udinese is postponed. Parma could have points deducted and forfeit all the remaining matches, they could fall into the hands of a adminstrater as well, and the club could be in the forth division as well. The footballers have not been paid their salaries nor the staff . It looks more likely that Parma will go bankrupt soon. What a sad state of things. Juventus paid Parma 33.5 million pounds for Gianlugi Buffon , the record for a goalkeeper. They had problems earlier with their owner of Parmalett as well.
Record books show that there have been eleven footballers to cost fifty million pounds or more, but not all have done that well to justify their price. 1) kaka. A.C.Milan to Real Madrid. Price 56. Million Pounds. Failure. 2) Zalatan Ibrahimovic. Inter Milan to Barcelona. Price 59. Million Pounds Failure. 3) Fernando Torres. Liverpool To Chelsea. Price 50. Million Pounds. Failure. 4)David Luiz. Chelsea to P.S.G. Price 50. Million Pounds. 5) Angel Di Maria. Real Madrid to Manchester United. Price. 59 Million Pounds. Failure. 6) Cristiano Ronaldo. Manchester United To Real madrid .Price 80 Million Pounds. Hit. 7) Edison Cavani. Napoli to P.S.G. Price 51 Million Pounds. Failure. 8) Luis Suarez. Liverpool To Barcelona. Price 75 Million Pounds. Verdict still to cme. 9) James Rodriguez. Monaco to RealMadrid. Price 63 Million Pounds. Hit. 10) Gareth Bale . Tottenham Hotspurs to Real Madrid. Price 86 Million pounds. SO SO.
According to THE METRO the president of Monaco has come forward to say that Radamel Falcao was wanted by seven clubs , and all are big clubs you see. He says one of them is Spanish giants Real Madrid , who are keen for this talented goalscorer . And yes he will not be coming cheap at all he will be costing Real Madrid a total sum of fifty million pounds. Who says there are no demand for flop footballers.
The president of F.C.Porto , Pinto Da costa has said that they are willing to sell their Colombian striker Jackson Maryinez, in fact he was to have been sold last year only , but he did agree to stay one more year at Porto. It is reported in THE METRO that Arsenal are keen to buy this lethal striker in the summer transfer. The price is still to be decided it could be around twenty eight million pounds.
There is no doubt about it that Jose Mourinho is the biggest hypocrit in football these days. He made hell of a noise when the Burnley player Ashley Barnes stamped on the foot of Nemanja Matic, Nemanja Matic was shown a red card. He was saying it was not correct on the Burnley players part. But the straight red card shown to Nemanja Matic for retaliating means a three match ban according to the rules. He also mentioned the stamp by Diego Costa which saw him get a straight red card was to harsh., as football was a emotinal game. But let me take you back a year in a match played between Arsenal and Chelsea and in that match John Obi Mikel stamped the foot of Mikel Arteta, breaking that shin pad to many pieces. Jose Mourinho then told the people it alright football is a mans game you see. It looks like he has forgotten those wise words of his , THE BIG CRY BABY THAT HE IS. He called the Ashley Barnes tackle as a CRIMNAL TACKLE.
Cristiano Ronaldo has scored goal number 290 for Real Madrid he is now third on the table, so let us look at the top five goal scorers for Real Madrid.He is thirty three goals behind Raul now. 1 ) Raul Gonzales. 1994/2010. 741 Games. 323 Goals. 2) Alfredo Di Steffano. 1953/1964. 392 Games. 305 Goals. 3)Cristiano Ronaldo. 2009/ Present. 281 games. 290. Goals. 4) Carlos Santillana.1971/19888. 645 Games. 289. Goals. 5) Ferenc Puskas. 1958/ 1966. 282 Games. 242. Goals.

It now appears that Manchester City want to get rid of Steven Jovetic , who joined Machester City from Italian side Fiorentina , for a huge twenty two million pounds. Now that manchester City have got the Ivory Coast striker Wilfred Bony for a sum of over twenty eight million pounds he is no longer wanted at the club. So Manchester City are trying to use Steven Jovetic as a bargaining pawn in the deal to get the French midfielder Paul Pogba from Juventus. But the French player is costing 75 million pounds now it could easily reach eighty million pounds in the summer. This teaches Steven Jovetic a lesson not to join big clubs for money , his friend Lucas Toni told him not to join Arsenal as it is a small club, but mind you it is on the top four clubs in the E.P.L and in the top ten richest clubs in Europe. Serves him right here, grass is not always green at City.
Now Arsenal are very keen to get this fifteen year old Belgian goalkeeper from Andrelecht, this youngster is only fifteen years old but is very talented indeed. So good is he that Manchester United , Arsenal and Chelsea are very keen to buy him after all. He is dubbed as the new Thaibaut Courtis after his country goalkeeper ,, who plays at Chelsea Thiabaut Courtis. His name is Mile Svilar 15 years is his age .
Swansea City the Welsh club have done the most wonderful thing in their history of football. The small Welsh club beat the mighty Manchester United twice this season , a thing not many clubs can boast about. The match was heading for a tame draw at 1-1 , till Jonjo Shelvey who tried to score from a 25 yard kick, but it took a slight defection from the head of Bafetimbi Gomis, and this goal was not given to Jonjo Shelvey but to Befatimbi Gomis instead lucky goal and a lucky win.
The Dutch manager Ronaald Koeman of Southampton , had advised his former player Calum Chambers from signing for Arsenal in the B.B.C. He felt he would not get much chance at Arsenal to develop his football. But it looks more likely that Ronald Koeman was wrong here by a big margine I would say. Records show that Calum Chambers has played a total of thirty four games for Arsenal and scoring a goal as well. And he has missed out just one match so far and that was due to a suspension after all. Arsenal are a club that give their youngsters a chance , you see them playing in the League Cup always.

Manchester City were looking out to replace their Chilean manager Manuel Pelegrini . And one who was in the mind of the Citizens was the Argentinean Diego Simone the manager at Atletico Madrid, after all they are the reigning chaimpions in Spain you see. But the Spanish club Atletico Madrid intend to hold on to Diego Simone, by giving him a long time contract of seven years, that will go on to 2022.
Arsenal have gone and signed a fifteen year old striker from Leighton Orient his name is Jerry Beckford , he is indeed a very young talented footballer,, as Arsenal look very much to the future in building up their team. He will be paid to an agreement made between the two clubs it is called E.P.P. or ELITE PERFORMANCE PROGRAME. or in simple words on how he performs only. This fifteen year old was a player who really did well at his club and all say they will miss him greatly. By the way this striker has played for Englands under 15 as well.
Arsenal will try and buy these two strikers in the summer , the strikers are Fernando Lorente and Andre Pierre Gignic , a both Juventus and Olympique Lyon want to sell and get fresh strikers in their place. Andre Pierre Gignic is a free agent in the summer while the Spaniard Fernando Lorente could very well cost Arsenal sixteen million pounds. But will Arsenal buy two strikers with Oliver Giroud doing so well at Arsenal.
The frmer great Liverpool player John Barnes has warned Raheem Sterling of leaving Liverpool for either of the Spanish giants Barcelona or Real Madrid , for the matter. He says talented youngsters aged twenty years would get lost there, as these clubs usually have very big squads and pay big money the rush is always there a these agents to want to make their money. John Barnes says these youngsters will loose their skills as they will not be able to find a starting place and will be a shadow of their old selves. He has given examples in England like Jack Rodwell and Trevor Sinclair who joined Manchester City and failed there terribly.
The Brazilian right back has just laughed out at knowing that Liverpool are keen to buy him. The reason Liverpool want him is that the Liverpool regular right back Glen Johnson has his contract coming to a end of 2016. Danilo has a buy out clause at his Club F.C.Porto which is a huge amount it is thirty seven million pounds. And both the Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona want him as well, Barcelona want him to replace Dany Alves.

The same old Mario Bolotelli always in the news for the wrong thing as usual. In the Europa League match Liverpool verses Besiktas, Liverpool were given a penalty late in the match, now as Steven Gerrard their regular captain who was injured and acting as a pundit, the armband was worn by Jordan Henderson. Now when Jordan Henderson had the ball in his hands Mario Bolotelli snatched the ball from Jordan Hendersons hand placed the ball and scored the penalty , which was also the only goal of the match. The two points to note here are Mario Bolotelli who is in no great form where goals are concerned ,showed disrespect to his captain. The other point is what if Mario Bolotelli did miss the penalty, then what would have happened? I tajke your memory back to a match of Everton when the regular Everton penalty striker Nathan Baines had the ball snatched from his hands by Mirallas, who then missed his penalty. Now Mario Bolotelli has missed just one penalty in is entire career so far. He did it with Samuel Etoo at Inter Milan as well, but Samuel Etoo refused to let Mario Bolotelli take the penaltyand the Cameroon striker took it. This is why the captain should be a player who is respected,they would have respected Gerrard here.
The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has now assured the Arsenal fans that their Spanish midfielder Santiago Carzola is not going anywhere in the summer. There was a big story going around in the press that Santiago Carzola is wanted by the Spanish champions Atletico Madrid. Arsene Wenger says that Santiago Carzola has just signed a new contract last year only , and there are four years remaining on the contract. Now what we must not forget here is that he is already thirty years old , so buying a thirty five year old player for a huge sum is not at all sensible.
Oh what has ever happened to A.C. Milan? This proud club who have won the champion league on seven times, and boast of a Player Poulo Maldini the only player to win the champion league five times in its history. Now they have won sixteen points in sixteen games down the table each week. Had four managers in the last year. Gone are the days of the flying Dutch men, Ruud Guillit , Marco Van Basten, and Frank Raijkard. Or for that matter Rui Costa, Kaka and Roberto Baggio.. Where will they be at the end of the season is to be seen.
In January 2014 Chelsea had resigned the midfielder Nemanja Matic from Benfica in Portugal. After all he was very much a Chelsea player once but he was sold to Benfica in the time Chelsea wanted the Brazilian defender David Luiz, Chelsea had then made a huge loss in the deal when in January they resigned Nemanja Matic the loss was seventeen million pounds,. May be it is peanuts to the Chelsea Russian owner.
Arsenal were for the past two years trying to sign the German midfielder Lars Bender from Bayern Leverkussn , and they were planning to try this summer as well. But things are really looking complicated here as now it is reported in the Press that Barcelona , the Spanish giants are also very keen on buying Lars Bender. But Barcelona have a ban imposed by F.I.F.A from buying or selling any player till January 2016.
Tottenham Hotspurs have won their case in the high court over the neighboring land. The stadium will ow have a capacity to seat 56,000 people and it will be costing a huge sum of 400 million pounds. That will mean the club will have to sell a few players each year to generate funds to pay back the money, it will not be a easy thing after all they plan to have it ready for the 2018 2019 season at the earliest. Selling players means the team will suffer as big clubs will come like hawks for the cream of their players. All you need to do is see how Arsenal were forced to sell their players to pay up for THE EMIRATE STADIUM.
Chelsea have indeed acted fast , they have already banned three people from entering THE STAMFORD BRIDGE STADIUM for life. Both the Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and the club owner Roman Abrahimovich have strongly condmed their stupid fans behavior at the Paris Metro. The two found it disgusting and disgracing behavior by their club fans for the Champion League match played between Chelsea and P.S.G. But the fans could face strong punishment as they could easily get three years behind bars and a fine of 45,000 Euros. But one thing was very clear there were more than these three culprits there was a crowd in the Metro shouting We are Chelsea and we are racist and this what we like, so will just these three become scapegoats and the majority of these idiots get of scott free. Chelsea have invited the person who was racially abused to visit Chelsea for the return leg of the champion league match with P.S.G, along with his family as special guests of Chelsea to show Chelsea are not racial at all. The black computer is simply identified as Souleymore. S.
Liverpool are very desperate to buy a proven striker, who can really score goals like what Luis Suarez did a few years back for Liverpool. And Mario Bolotelli has failed badly at Liverpool. So they are now looking at the Brazilian striker Luis Adriano who plays his club football in the troubled Ukraine. The price could be seven to eight million pounds but THE METRO says both Arsenal and Juventus are keen on Luis Adriano to buy him in the summer.
Now it is the turn of the second son of David Beckham to join Arsenal academy, after Brooklyn joining it is the turn now of his second son Romeo to join the Arsenal academy. He has now done well for himself in a match with Liverpool youth , Romeo scored the second goal for the Arsenal side the match had ended 3-2 in the favour of Arsenal.

Now thirteen years ago they started to keep a record of football fans who were arrested for racial abuse. And they have made say two groups those in the E.P.L and those clubs in the other division. And it has come as no surprise that Chelsea are the leaders with a total of 27 arrests. Stoke City and Leeds United follow Chelsea. But what we must take into consideration here is that thirteen years ago Stoke City were not in the E.P.L, and Leeds united the other club are still in the lower division today. So the racial abuse at the Metro station in Paris was bound to be Chelsea fans, who even boasted WE are racists and we like it this way. They have pulled the name of Chelsea into the mud. The Chelsea fan Josh Parsons has been identified now. What will Chelsea and U.E.F.A and F.I.F.A do, will Chelsea have points deducted or only a fine. Mind you these Chelsea fans could get three years jail and 45,000 Euros as a fine.
It was a big surprise that David Beckham chose Arsenal instead of Manchester United to start his young career on the way. And now he has impressed those at Arsenal so much , that he is now being promoted to the under 18 years old players. Hee we must all remember that he is only a fifteen year old boy, and the way thing are going for him he will soon start playing for Arsenal in their main team, but let us hold our horses for now as competition will be tough.
Arsenal are keen to get this Colombian striker Jackson Martinez, who is playing his club football in Portugal with F.C.Porto, Arsenal were keen to get him in the summer but the deal failed. He is a lethal finisher and Arsenal are keen to get a player who is such a lethal finisher mainly because they only have a striker of Oliver Girouds class . And we saw what happened this year when Oliver Giroud broke his leg and was out for over a year, the goals dried out as Theo Walcott was also out with Mesut Ozil injured you see. But he will be costing twenty nine million pounds quite a lot ..
there is no doubt about it that Southampton do indeed have a very fine youth academy, and they have produced some real good young footballers. But they have sold some real jewels in fact to other clubs over the years. Some of them. 1) Gareth Bale. Sold to Tottenham Hotspurs for 9 million pounds. 2) Calum Chambers. Sold to Arsenal. For 12 Million pounds. 3) Adam Lalana. Sold to Liverpool. For 24 Million pounds. 4) Luke Shaw. Sold to Manchester United . For 27 Million Pounds. 5)Alex Oxalde Chamberlain. Sold to Arsenal. For 12 Million Pounds. 6) Theo Wallcott. Sold to Arsenal. For 9 Million Pounds. 7) Wayne Bridge. Sold to Chelsea . For 7 Million Pounds. 8) Cris Baird. Sold to Fulham . For 3 Million Pounds.
Miralem Pjanic the A.S.Roma player has flatly said that he will only join Liverpool if this one thing does happen. He has been targeted from A.S Roma for a price of 25 million pounds , even when A.S.Roma wanted 37 million pounds. And the one thing that should happen according to him is that F.C.Liverpool should qualify for the Champion League next year, which is not going to be easy with both Arsenal and Southampton fighting for the last forth place in the E.P.L.
Wednesday, February 18, 2015
It now looks like Manchester United want a good right back and they want the Totenham Hotspurs right back Kyle Walker , who can also play as a centeral defender. But the big problem facing the clun will be that Kyle Walker has over four years to run on his ocntract at Tottenham Hotspurs, so the club will surely ask Manchester United for more money then they are willing to offer right now. And another point here to note is will he be willing to leave Tottenham Hotspurs for Manchester United, one thing in his favour would be if Manchester United qualify for the champion league next year.
The former Chelsea defender David Luiz was sold in the summer from Chelsea to P.S.G, for a huge fifty million pounds.And after his showing at the 2014 world cup in Brazil, but when we compare the two of them , David Luiz has being doing far better then Gary Cahil, so we can say it was a bad sale after all. 1) David Luiz. Games 19. Minutes played 1,647 minutes. Ground Duels won 65 percent. Blocks 0.66 percent.Passes completed 90 percent.Tackles won 53 percent. Ariel Duels won 79 percent.. 2) Gary Cahil.Games 24. Minutes played 1,947.Ground Duels won 59.8 Percent. Blocks 0.79. Percent. Passes completed 87 Percent. Tackles won 44 Percent Ariel Duels won 69. Percent.
All three E.P.L clubs have been told to break the bank for this Polish striker, Robert Lewandowski, who plys his club football in Germany with Bayern Munich, he joined bayern Munich from rival club Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer, but he has scored hardly any goals and the club playing methods do not soot him well. So Liverpool , Arsenal and Manchester United have been told to break the bank and buy him,this was said by the former German footballer Dieter Hamman who played for Liverpool.
The Spanish midfielder Xavi Alonso got his red card , when laying his match number hundred in the champion league. It was big day for him as not many footballers can boast of playing hundred games in the Champion League. It was played against Shaker Donstek. it was a ugly game with players from both Bayern Munich also being shown cards.
According to THE METRO, Manchester United are keen to buy the Uruguayan Edison Cavani from P.S.G, and they are willing to spend fifty million pounds on him and they are also willing to pay him a huge weekly salary of 220,000 pounds. The reason for him is Manchester United have been vastly disappointed by Radamel Falcao Garcia, and he will be going back to Monaco, and Robin Van Persie is to old thirty one years already, Wayne Rooney is no longer playing a strikers role, he now plays as a midfielder.
The Chelsea fans who were in Paris to play their Champion League match against P.S.G , were caught on video by pushing and not allowing a black man from entering the Paris Metro. These Chelsea hooligans proudly and shamelessly said they were racist. The Chelsea club acted fast by saying their fans who were guilty would face a life ban even if they had season tickets. Gary Linekar and Ian Wright said it was sickening and disgusting , even Paul Canoville the first black footballer ever to play for Chelsea in 1982 had very strong words for these shameful fans. But what does the law say to this. A lawyer in Paris said the guilty people shown on camera could get three years in jail and a fine of 45,000 Euros. Will the Chelsea club pay this fine?
In the F.A match between Manchester United and Preston, the match was won by Manchester United with a score of 3-1. There was a howler made by the Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea. But what did catch the eye was when Wayne Rooney , was suposed to have been brought down by the Preston Goalkeeper Thornsten Stuckman, but replays show it was a dive and not a penalty at all. At the end of the match Wayne Rooney said sorry to the Preston Goalkeeper.
The former France and Arsenal striker Thierry Henry, who is at present a SKY SPORTS PUNDIT. Has now started working to get his Managers badge, so he has now joined the club where he spent many years , he will now train with the Arsenal youth Academy called HALE END CENTER , for youngsters till they are eighteen years old.
It is reported in THE METRO that Arsenal are willing to pay Bayern Leverkusen a sum of twenty two million pounds for their defensive midfielder Lars Bendner , he also has a twin brother playing his club football with Borussia Dortmund in Germany. Arsenal were keen to get him earlier but Borussia Dortmund were not willing to sell their star. But things are quite different now as Borussia Dortmund are hobbling over the relegation table with every chance of going down in the next season. Now it is also reported in Spain , that the Spanish giants Barcelona were also very keen to sign the German midfielder. But very sadly Barcelona are punished by F.I.F.A from either buying or selling any player, so you got it Arsenal will take full advantage to buy the German holding midfielder, a player Arsenal do not have now.

Once upon a time both A.C.Milan and Inter Milan were one club, till the year 1909, when they were seperated, but both use the famous San Siro stadium. Inter Milan in the year 2013 had a Indonesian businessman named Erik Thoir take 70 percent of Inter Milan. Now History is about to repeat itself again, this time it is A.C.Milan, A.C.Milan have won the champion league seven times but this year they stand eleventh in the table . with no hope to play in the champion league next year as well, and there are fifteen games to go still. But financially A.C.Milan are doing well they are 12th richest club according to Deloitte with a income of 208.8 million pounds for the year 2013/2014. But now A Thai Businessman Bee Teachaubol is now willing to invest one Billion Euros into A.C.Milan and take a stake of 50 percent in the club. Now the owner of A.C.Milan the former Italian leader Silvio Berlusconi will have to decide to it.
Wayne Rooney has told his team mate Argentinean Angel Di Maria , whose house was broken into to go ahead and employ a gurkha guard to guard his house, after the robbery Angel Di Maria and his wife and daughter are staying in a hotel, they have left their Cheshire house in freight. This is common as these rich footballers are easy targets for these home breakers. Darren bent Darren Fletcher all have had their house broken into sadly.
The Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has flown to Italy to find a replacement for Steven Gerrard, and he is looking at two players from A.S.Roma, but the main person he wants is Miralem Pjanic . Now A.S.Roma want 37 million pounds for the sale of Miralem Pjanic , but Liverpool were willing to pay only twenty million pounds for him, a difference of seventeen million pounds. And by the way his weekly wages will be a huge 160,000 pounds, which is very huge indeed. The question is will Liverpool be willing to meet his huge weekly salary?
The Liverpool striker Lazor Markovick has been given a four match ban by U.E.F.A. He gets four match ban instead of the usual three match because of this. In the European League he was last given a red card after two yellow cards for the time he was at his last club Benfica. So that one game plus a straight red card in the match with Basel, makes four red cards , he will miss the match with the Turkish club Besiktas in the European League The violent conduct of his was when he raised a arm at the Basel player Behrang Safari.

Wayne Rooney has now been placed as a midfielder , with Radamel Falcao and Robin Van Persie as their strikers. It has taken Wayne Rooney a total of nine hundred and fifty two minutes to score his first goal for Manchester United from this new position. But he had nothing what so ever to be proud of , he dived to win a penalty . What a shame the mighty Manchester United had too use thiese methods to win their F.A match against Prestton.
It looks like Liverpool have realized that they will have to buy a player to replace their long serving captain Steven Gerrard. But one thing is very clear here he is a player you just can not replace.Players like him are just born and can not be made to follow like him. In the middle of the week even when a F.A match was there Brendan Rodgers the Liverpool manager flew of to Italy to watch a few players , such as Miralem Pjanic . Now his club A.S.Roma have said he will be costing a huge 39 million pounds.
The president of the Italian club Palermo, Mr Zimparini is in London to have talks with Arsenal board, . The player in mind is the Argentinean striker called Paolo Dybala,he is wanted by quite a few clubs in Europe, and let us be honest here that Italian football clubs just do not have enough money to buy players, they will have to sell first. And the amount asked by Palermo is a very huge 29.1 million pounds, the talks are well advanced otherwise the president would never fly down to see Arsenal board.
It is reported in THE METRO that Manchester United will se the chunk of the money they have got from Television rights , which was a huge five Billion Pounds, which will be shared by the clubs in the E.P.L. Manchester United are so very desperate to get back into the champion League, that they are willing to spend a total of 245 million pounds on just two players, just imagine that, they have clearly lost their marbles you see. They are willing to buy Cristiano Ronaldo for a whooping 150, one hundred and fifty million pounds, mind you he is already thirty years old and now injuries will be common . And they are willing to spend 95, ninety five million pounds for Gareth Bale.Who has been being booed and jeered at Real Madrid, so he has not been doing well to justify this huge amount.
It is reroported in THE METRO that THE OLD LADY OF TURIN , JUVENTUS , are willing to sell Fernando Lorente to Tottenham Hotspurs, in the summer. As the present pair to help Harry Kane Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor have failed very badly. In fact Juventus are already making plans to replace Fernando Lorente with the Brazilian player Oscar who plays his football with Chelsea.
According to THE METRO, Atletico Madrid have made it very clear to Manchester United that Koke , their midfielder will not be a part and parcel of the Juan Mata and cash deal. But Atletico Madrid are indeed willing to make their Brazilian defender Miranda as part of the player as well as cash deal , for the Spanish midfielder Juan Mata. Now the big question is will Manchester United agree to this, mind you Miranda is nominated for the best defender player in Spain.
In the Spanish League Lionel Messi has scored the most goals so far he has a total of 269 goals .Which is a record. And he has a total of 107 assists in the Spanish League as well. By the way this is also a new Spanish record. He has a total of 23 Hat tricks, the most in Spain, it equals Cristiano Ronaldo record , as he to has 23 hat tricks. In the match with Levente , Lionel Messi played his game number three hundred for Barcelona.
On 12/1/2015 Cristiano Ronaldo won the BALLON DOR. But after that the show was all Lionel Messi in the stasticks Lionel Mess has now scored his 23rd hat trick for Barcelona equal with Cristiano Ronaldo. CRISTIANO RONALDO. LIONEL MESSI. GOALS. 3. 12. GAMES 5. 8. ASISTS. 1. 12. Total Shots. 15. 35. SHOTS ON TARGET.6. 21. Shots Conversion. 34.29. Passes. 175. 558. Passing Acuracy. 82.86. 79.57.
The Spanish media are now saying that the Spanish midfielder Santiago Carzola who plays his club football with the English club Arsenal. It seems that an agreement has been mafe with Atletico Madrid to buy him in the summer. The Spanish midfielder is thirty years old, but Arsene Wenger will not sell him cheap for sure, and Atletico Madrid just cant spend big money on him, a the club have a big debt. It looks like that Arsenal will make a move for James Milmer and the French midfielder Couqulien makes regular starting tough at thirty years.

It looks more and more likely that Louis Van Gaal is loosing his marbles, where Wayne Rooney is concerned, it appears he wants Wayne Rooney to play in the midfield at Manchester United. And the football world knows it that Wayne Rooney has always been a striker right from his Everton days. He is on the verge of breaking Sir Bobby Charlton s record for the most goals scored by a Manchester United player. But he will not break that record playing in that middle position.In fact he has not had a single shot at goal from there.

Steven Jovetic who now plays for Manchester City, has been told by the manager that he will not be in the team for the champion league match instead his place will go to Wilfred Bony , and he is very upset over it. But he must remember that U.E.F.A last year have punished Manchester City with a fifty million pound fine and Manchester City were told that they can only have twenty one players in the champion league matches this year. But serves Steven Jovetic well, you see he joined Manchester City from Fiorentina for a fee of twenty two million pounds, even when Arsenal were keen to buy him. But his friend Lucas Toni told him not to join Arsenal as it was a very small club, and he agreed to it. I do not think Arsenal is a small club they are playing Champion League matches for the seventeenth year in a row, have Manchester City or Fiorentina done anything like what Arsenal have done, the answer is no. He says he will decide his future in the summer as both Juventus and Inter Milan are inetrested in him.
Aston Villa have appointed Tim Sherwood as their new manager of the club. But as there were not many people willing to take up the job, so it was done soon indeed. But Tim Sherwood was the former manager for a short time With Tottenham Hotspurs. But tpo expect miracles from him is asking a little bit to much, as the club have not scored enough goals and only have a total of 22 points, far to little to leave the relegation group. Unless goals are scored fast and a few of them , he will not be able to save the club for sure.
Freddy Adu the young football prodigy from the U.S.A , he was once compared to the great Pele of Brazil. But it all ended there very sadly. He failed to live up to expectations and started doing badly on the pitch. In fact after playing for ten different clubs , he has decided it would never work out for him, so he is back in his home town of Washington D.C. He is at 25 years of age working at a night club. Another case of prodigy failing badly.
Manchester United fans were hoping that their former player Gerrard Pique would be leaving Barcelona and rejoin Manchester United from mighty Barcelona. But Gerrard Pique has given them a rude shock , as he has told THE ELMUNDO DEPORTACOUNA that he will be playing for Barcelona for a few more years at least ,whether it is six years or more he just can not say , but he does want to retire at F.C.Barcelona. The big question I ask Manchester United is why did they sell him back to Barcelona. in the first place? After all he has been a gratuate from Barcelona s LA MASSIA their youth Accademy from where Lionel Messi, Carles Puyol and Xavi Hernandez came from.
Anderson the former Manchester United player who was released as no clubs wanted him in the January transfer window. He was got from F.C.Porto in Portugal by Alex Ferguson for a huge 26 million pounds. He was a very talented player at F.C. Porto in fact he was called t THE GOLDEN BOY OF EUROPE. But sadly he was a super flop at Manchester United,. But he does proudly shows the medals he won at Manchester United, for playing from the bench. Anderson refused to learn the English language after all he was eight years at Manchester United.
according to THE METRO the Spanish giants Barcelona are very keen to buy the Spanish midfielder Juan Mata from Manchester United. But yes a transfer ban is in place on Barcelona , by F.I.F.A till the year 2016 to the January transfer window. But all this has not stopped Barcelona from making their very own plans in buying him , Juan Mata from Manchester United Once their one year ban comes to a end in January 2016. After all he is a Spaniard and would love to return home to Spain one day. He was sold by Valencia , as they were facing financial problems , he was sold to Chelsea, who then sold him to Manchester United for 31.1 million pounds.

Now Manchester United want a new striker as they are not going to make the loan of Radamel Falcao Garcia permanent , they will send him back to Monaco. The English club are now willing to pay sixty million pounds for the Uruguayan striker from P.S.G.. As P.S.G are keen to fall in line with THE FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULE. In fact they want to even sell the Argentinean striker Ezequiel Lavezzi to Liverpool for this matter. But the problem at Manchester United is that Edison Cavani will demand a weekly salary of 300,000 pounds. And it will also make the position of Robin Van Persie up for sale a well. But one thing we must take into account is that Edison Cavani is not at all keen to leave P.S.G. Even after both these two strikers were punished by the club.
The big question to ask is was Paul Lambert the big problem at Aston Villa? And the answer is not at all. After all it is the footballers on the pitch that win matches , and they have to score a lot of goals to survive in the E.p.l. But their strikers were injured and Aston Villa have scored just twelve goals in over twenty matches, not at all enough to be a middle table club, you will be facing relegation here. In twenty five games Aston Villa won 5 games drew 7 games lost 13 games and collected twenty two points only.
Dani Osvaldo who had joined Southampton for a record fee of fifteen million pounds in the year 2013, but just not able to settle in the E.P.L he always complained about the pace and roughness of the game there. He was sent to Italy with Inter Milan on loan, he scored eight goals for the San Siro club. He now joins Boco Juniors in Argentina, after all he was born in Argentina, he will be there till the 8/8/2016.
1)It now looks like tuventus THE OLD LADY OF TURIN s doing some early shopping now. It is reported in THE METRO that Juventus are very keen to buy the Brazilian midfielder Oscar from Chelsea , it is also said that the price for Oscar will be twenty five million pounds. It is said that Paul Pogba from Juventus could be sold to Manchester United for a sum of seventy million pounds. 2) It looks like Manchester United will pay yje hge money for Paul Pogba as Louis Van Gaals target Kevin Strootman is injured and has undergone a knee surgery at A.S.Roma. 3) Brendan Rodgers is in Rome to look for a long time replacement for Steven Gerrard, he is looking at these two players Radja Nainggoan and Merllam Pjani 4) Arsene Wenger is close to sign Guiellmero Okacha for three million pounds from malaga.
Kevin Bruyne could not get a place in the starting line for Chelsea.He found it very hard to get a place in the regular team, as Eden Hazard, Oscar, Willian and Cesc Fabregas were all chosen firstin the team. He decided to leave Chelsea for a better starting place club. This january he got himself transfered from Chelsea to Wolfsburg in Germany. But he has done very well and has already scored eight goals for the German club.
In the football matches all the players run a lot, but let us look at some players who ran the most in a match. James Milner has run the most in a single E.P.L match, he did 13.56 Kilometers .In the Manchester City verses Stoke.u City. But George Boyd of Burnley has done the most of the running . For he ran the most. in five matches for Burnley. verses Aston Villa he did 13.30 Kilometers. In Burnley verses Manchester United he covered 13.30 Kilometers . Against Stoke City he did 13.34 Kilometers. Against Newcastle United he did 13.32 Kilometers.
So Branislav Ivonovic is not charged for headbutting or biting James McCarthy, the referee did not see the incident, but we in India saw it clearly on T.V. So it is Russian oil money that is buying Chelsea out, may be even winning matches this way, after all Manchester United did it won trophies under Alex Ferguson. The English F.A can only punish Luis Suarez but have no guts to punish a Chelsea player, SHAME ON THE F.A.
After Aston Villa sacked their Scottish manager Paul Lambert, it now leaves the E.p.L without a single Scottish manager. Gone are the days of the famous Scottish managers like these. 1) Sir Matt Busby. 2) Sir Alex Ferguson. 3) David Moyes. 4)George Graham. 5)Bill Shanky. 6)Kenny Dalglish. 7) George Ramsey. 8)Owen Coyle. 9) Stephen Keane. 10)Ian McLiesh.

The Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard who plays his club football in England with Chelsea, took a long time to sign his new contract, and Jose Mourinho joked that he was looking for a new pen, so that Eden Hazard could sign the new contract. Well it is all done and dusted, he will now get a weekly salary of 200,000 pounds a week. The contract is for a period of five and a half years, till 2020. And what will it be worth, it will be worth a huge fifty seven million pounds in those years. It is helped by the huge T.V.Rights paid to the clubs in England. The Celtic manager says Scotland will not catch up to this money to buy players.
According to DELOITTE for the year 2013/2014 this is the list of the ten richest clubs i Europe.Real Madrid remain the tenth richest club for the tenth year in a row. And the Turkish club Galatsaray came in the twenty richest clubs.Newcastle United and Everton also made it to the twenty richest clubs. 1) Real Madrid. 549..5. Million Euros. 2)Manchester United. 518.Million Euros. 3)Bayern Munich. 487.5. Million Euros. 4)Barcelona. 484.6. Million Euros. 5)P.s.G. 474.2.

Please note both the two Milan clubs have dropped from the top ten, A.C.Milan and Inter Milan.
Now Louis Van Gaal is playing Wayne Rooney as a midfielder, and it is showing, he has hardly had a shot at the goal from this position. Wayne Rooney was always a striker at Everton, Manchester United and England as well. So that is the place he will get you goals, he is a very hard working footballer for both club and country, under various managers for England he was always a striker, just because he is twenty nine years old that does not mean he should play at the midfield. Now for England with both Steven Gerrard and Franck Lampard retiring , goals will be harder to come. If he does not score goals he will not be selected for England. After all he is short of a few goals of the record for Manchester United , held by Sir Bobby Charlton. So bring him back to his strikers position Manchester United.
Frank Lampard the former Chelsea midfielder who is now playing at Manchester City on loan. After the match which Manchester City won 4-1. His act then was worth a praise. In the match between Manchester City and Stoke City. a young boy named Oliver Shenton made his debut for Stoke City in the injury time it was the 94th minute. After the match Franck Lampard asked Peter Crouch of Stoke City , to kindly point out Oliver Shenton for him. For Oliver Shenton had very recently lost his mother , who sadly lost her battle with breast cancer., Franck Lampard then swapped jerseys with young Oliver Shenton.. Franck Lampard said he lost his mother to Pneomonia , and his head was in a daze for days. A small act but a very good act indeed.
By vote Oliver Giroud has won the award for the Hottest player i the E.P.L His close challengers were Jesus Navas and Morgan Schneiderlin. The award was given to him by Matheu Debuchy and David Ospina
It is looking more and more likely that players at big clubs like Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea , Arsenal and Liverpool could easily get a weekly salary of 200,000 pounds a week, now Eden Hazard has just signed a new contract getting 200, 000 pounds. And in another five years time players the best of the lot could easily draw 500,000 pounds a week. The question is where is all this crazy paying leading us, the thought is scarry. It was far from the salary of say the first million pound transfer, Trevor Francis.
The Brazilian flop Anderson, who joined Manchester United from F.c.Porto , for a very huge fee indeed, it was twenty million pounds then. But sadly he was not wanted at Manchester United, and this January could only find a club that wanted him in his own country Brazil. The club was called Inter Nacinaol, but things just did not improve there, playing for his new club he missed a sitting penalty as well.
1) The debt of Manchester United just increased further it now stands at 380.5 Million pounds. 2) The debt rose 23.9 million pounds compared to last year. 3) Total wage bill fell to 2.9. Million Pounds. 4) The total reveneu fell down 14 Percent. 5) Last year their debt stood at 356.6 Million pounds.
The Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was not there for the big match , Liverpool against Tottenham Hotspurs, and he will not be there for Liverpool s F.A cup match against Crystal Palace. It is reported by the media that it has to be a very important matter to make him miss both these matches. The talk going around is that he was in Italy , and most likely to watch the A.S.Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan play in person. As he is looking out for a replacement for Steven Gerrard, who jpoins Los Angles Galaxy in the summer. But he must get one thing very clear here that neither Jack Wilshere or Radja Nainggolan can never replace Steven Gerrard , as such players come on the scene nce in a lifetime only , and can not be made.
James Milner is on his last year of his contract at Manchester City, and he is thinking long and deep over a move to either Liverpool or Arsenal. The best club for him to join in the summer would be Liverpool, to fill the gap of the departure of Steven Gerrard to the U.S.A with M.L.S with Los Angles Galaxy. A move to either club would be a good choice, Arsenal would be a better move for him as this club can promise Champion League football.
Steven Gerrard who played for his childhood club Liverpool for many years ,and he played under several managers as well, it may be thought by many that he always wore the famous number 8 jersey at Liverpool, but it is not so. Back in the year 2004, along with Michael Owen and Emile Heskey , and under the watchful eye of the French coach Gerrard Huoilier he was then wearing the jersey number 17.
The German striker Lukas Podolski who joined the Italian club Inter Milan on loan from Arsenal in this January transfer window. And he played just six matches for Inter Milan. Now the Italian club board say that Lukas Podolski is not up to the mark , which they expected. Now that is funny they had ample time to send their scouts to England to watch him play at Arsenal. Now Inter Milan can thank their lucky stars that the deal was just a loan and not at all a big money transfer, as it would have hurt the pockets of Inter Milan, as a player of his class do not come cheap in the market, after all he is a world cup winner. So he will be back at Arsenal, and he will be welcomed back with open arms.
The Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is looking to find a reliable replacement for Steven Gerrard, who will be leaving his boyhood club for Los Angles Galaxy in the next summer transfer. He has now identified two good young midfielders to replace him, they are Jack Wilshere from Arsenal and Radja Nainggolan from A.S.Roma in Italy. Yes both of these two footballers will be costly over thirty million pounds each. But will these two clubs sell their stars, is another matter. Jack wilshere has had problems both on and of the field ,with his many injuries and his smoking problem, the last time he was caught smoking a pipe. Arsene Wenger punishes such offenders , their Polish goalkeeper has been fined 200,000 pounds for smoking in the shower after the loss against Southampton. But it must be remembered that Steven Gerrard is Steven Gerrard and nobody can take his place at Liverpool , that is for sure.

During the E.P.L match between Chelsea and Everton , it clearly shows that in a moment of plain madness the Chelsea defender Branislav Ivonovic not only head butted James McCarthy , but according to THE METRO we can clearly see him biting James McCarthy as well. It very well looks like Branislav Ivonovic has taken lessons on biting from Luis Suarez. And we all know that Luis Suarez was given a eight month ban after he bit a Italian player at the 2014 world cup. But the funniest thing here is no yellow card was shown or no sending of either. We know both Zinedine Zidane and Marco Matrezzi were banned for a few matches. But we must remember here this was Chelsea and Russian oil money can buy the English F.A. Branislav Ivonovic is seen holding James McCarthy in a stranglehold of his neck.But he was not shown a yellow card even for that. But let me remind you that the French defender Philippe Mexes of A.C.Milan got a four match ban because of the same hold on a player in a match in Italy. The English referees are plain thrash, and should be only referee the second and third tire clubs.The English F.A must wake up from their slumber, for example Charlie Adams at Stoke City held Alexis Sanchez in a wrestling hold of the neck, there to no card was shown. So the English referees are plain thrash.
The supreme court has not allowed Real Madrid to go ahead with their plans to redevelop their famous stadium called the Santiago Bernabeu, to the new name of Abu Dhabi Bernebeu, as it is funded by the Abu Dabi group. It was said to cost 260 million pounds. And there were reports in the press that Real Madrid had even removed the cross on the top of their badge.
The Tottenham Hotspurs have now got a big headache , as Emmanuel Adebayor refuses to join another club , as he wants the White Hart club to honour his contract which runs upto 2016. He is now getting a weekly salary of 105,000 pounds. In the summer both Stoke City, West Ham United and others came along for him, but he refused to budge from moving to another club. This is far from the Arsenal days of his, he went to Manchester City, hoping the grass was greener there, but from there he went to Real Madrid and now finally Tottenham Hotspurs. Now the club has a big problem as it is money being wasted , and they have just cleared out Esso Eukito . He is now not wanted or for the matter loved by his fans either, far away from his Arsenal days.
There is no doubt about it that Raheem Sterling is getting to greedy for his own good. It appears Liverpool are willing to pay him a weekly salary of a hundred thousand pounds. But he wants a hundred and twenty thousand pounds , 120,000 weekly salary.The important thing here is that he is only nineteen years old plenty of time to get that amount. He should agree for a three year deal , and then get a bigger one as he does on the pitch. Let me remind you that Luke Shaw at Manchester United is getting a weekly salary of 120,000 pounds, and he has been a big flop at Manchester United. If Liverpool do pay him this money soon Liverpool will be forced to pay him 200,000 pounds. It is a well known fact that the English youngsters are more demanding then say the French youngsters at their club.
In the january transfer window the E.P.L clubs spent a total of 130 million pounds.And the main clubs to do buisness were Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea. The accounting firm Deollite has said the amount in this january transfer window was the same as 2014. The 2011 january transfer window was the heaviest in spending that year 225 million pounds was spent. The costliest transfer was made by Manchester City for the Swansea striker Wilfred Boney who was costing 28 million pounds. Chelsea signed the Clombian playrer Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina for 23.6 million pounds. But here Chelsea sold their German winger Andre Shurie to Wolfsburg . In the last minute of the transfer a deal was made for 45 million pounds.
According to THE METRO, Arsenal are on the verge of signing the Brazilian defender Danny Alaves. Now Manchester United had drawn a big plan to give the Brazilian Danny Alves a three year contract with a weekly salary of of 100,000 pounds. But now Manchester United will now have to look elsewhere now. But the point to note is that Arsene Wenger does not sign players who are thirty years or more, as the Arsenal policy is to give all players thirty years a one year contract only. The second thing to note is Barcelona are punished by F.I.F.A for not alloing to buy or sell a player till 2016.

So far only three E.P.L clubs have scored over four thousand goals at home. And so hold your breath here. 1) Liverpool. Have scored 4000 goals at Anfield. 2) Everton . Have scored 4208 goals at Goodison Park. 3) Aston Villa. Have scored 4025 goals at Villa Park.
The Dutch midfielder Siem De Jong, who now plays his club football with Newcastle United in England. He had just returned to the club after missing out a few weeks with a injury, but now as he was almost fully fit again and was to play for the club again , when disaster struck him again. He had to undergo a operation as his lungs had collapsed, it was the second time it has happened to him, it happened way back in 2013 when he was at Ajax in Holland.He will be out for at least two months. And it is well known that footballers do need a good pair of lungs.
Manchester United may be forced to sell the Argentinean winger Angel Di Maria to the French club P.S.G.For a sum of sixty million pounds. Angel Di Maria hhas complained about the language problem as well as the damp weather of England, and injury to has played a big part in this idea of selling him. The main reason by Manchester United to sell Angel Di Maria is to generate enough funds to buy the German defender Mat Humels and the Uruguayan defender Diego Godin from Atletico Madrid. But mind you Diego Godin has already said that he has no desire what so ever to leave the Spanish champions Atletico Madrid.
Cristiano Ronaldo celebrated his birthday, but unfortunately it fell after mighty Real Madrid were humbled by Atletico Madrid, they lost the match with a humilating score of 4-0. Now the Real Madrid fans were as stupid as usual , attacked cristiano Ronaldo and even put up a banner against him. But these fans should realize that Cristiano Ronaldo has every right to celebrate his birthday just as the fans have a right to celebrate. Some players like Segio Ramos and Luka Modric were angry over the celebrations . But let me remind you all that Ronaldo celebrated his birthday , and not the defeat by Atletico Madrid.So legally he is in his right to do it.
The German Marcus Reus , who was wanted by Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City , has now gone and boldly signed a new contract to be at his hometown club till the year 2019. He had a buy out clause of twenty million pounds,but now the new contract does not have any buy out clause, so he could very well be sold for fifty million pounds. But what did surprise every one was signing for a long term deal was rather risky as Borussia Dortmund are now facing relegation problems. And the only hope he has is to win the Champion League with Borussia Dortmund this year, and things do not look so encouraging now.
In football strange things do happen, and funny ones to , but this has to be the funniest one. According to THE METRO the Italian football club Parma , which has been a troubled club for many a year, and is dangling right at the bottom of the table was sold. The two owners Tommaso Chiradi and Rezart Taci have sold the club for the price of seventy Pence, the price of a Mars chocolate. Parma had earlier trouble wiith the owners of Parmalet company.
The 2015 Asian cup was held in Australia , and it was a very well contested tournament with no crowd troubles or referee mistakes either. Even though the winner of the tournament was Australia with a win over South Korea after Extra Time .Australia won it 2-1. But what really impressed me was that both Iraq and Palestine qualified for the Asian cup. Both these two countries are a war torn countries, but still Iraq, they managed to reach the semi finals and lost the bronze medal. While on the other hand India with a population of well over a billion failed to qualify.

Arsenal are very much on the verge of signing a a sixteen year old French defender called Dayat Upamecano , who plays with the french club Valenciennes in the second division in France. Manchester United were very keen to buy him and were also willing to pay a sum of 650,000 pounds for him. But Arsenal entered the picture and are now willing to pay the French club one million pounds for the youngster. Dayat Upamecano can play both as central defender as well as a right back.
According to THE METRO Arsenal are very keen to buy the Mexican goalkeeper Gullermo Ochoa, from the Spanish club Malaga Arsenal were indeed very keen to buy him in the summer transfer window, but the deal failed in the end, and he joined Malaga But he is very upset as he is not getting starting place at Malaga . He has now asked for a transfer, with both Arsenal and Liverpool keen to buy him as Liverpool have been disappointed with their Belgian goalkeeper Simon Mignolet But Arsenal have the edge here over Liverpool as Arsenal are playing in the Champion League already. But Arsenal are also keen to sign Bernd Leno from Bayern Leverkusen, he has played over 110 games for the German club, but one thing is very crystal clear here he will not be coming cheaply to Arsenal.

Today the players at any football club are drawing huge sums of money as weekly salaries.But let me take you back to the year 17/8/1960. You will be shocked. Yes I do agree a pound was valued much more then. 1 ) Roger Hunt a world cup winner in 1966 got just22 pounds a week. 2) Ian Callaghan just got 18.13 pounds a week. 3)Billy Lid dell. just got 16. Pounds. And they had two pounds cut for their rent.
West Ham United were fined heavily to a tune of 71,000, seventy one thousand pounds after the F.A. match against Bristol City. The big mistake made by West ham United was to allow the Diafro Sakho to play in the F.A.Cup against Bristol City, he even scored the only winning goal as well. But now F.I.F.A had the club investigated and found that it was indeed true , that West Ham united had allowed a ineligible player to play in the F.A Cup. Now what does the rules say. It clearly says that a player can not play any football match for his club, if he is called for any international duty.Here he was called to represent Senegal at the AFRICAN CUP OF NATIONS.He refused to play for his country, but played the F.A.cup. The big question now is will West Ham United be thrown out of the F.A.Cup, by F.I.F.A.
The Spanish giants Real Madrid have now offered the Portuguese left back t Arsenal. Fabio Coentrao joined Real Madrid for a huge price of 25, twenty five million pounds, and was on a six year contract. But sadly injury and lack of form also played a part, and having Marcello as a left back has made things even harder for him. You can also be sure that his weekly wages was very high indeed.And he is not even on the bench these days.
The Spanish footballer Andre Herrera , who plays his club football with Manchester United.Will fly back to Spain, Valencia for a case. He will appear in court there to answer questions with a incident in the year 2011. he was then playing in Spain with Zaragoza. In 2011 in a match between Real Zaragoza and Levente , which is being investigated by the judge in court. It is said that a sum of 90.000 Euros, ninety thousand Euros was paid to the club not to loose the game against Levente.So that Real Zaragoza would not be relegated that year. Ander Herrera always says that he is innocent of the whole thing. But the back account shows that indeed that money was transferred into the account. The judge could decide in Valencia , which could be either a total ban or a jail term even.

On the last day of the transfer window Tottenham Hotspur wanted to hijack the sale deal of the German winger Andre Schurie. Chelsea were asking Tottenham Hotspurs to pay a huge thirty million pounds for the German. But the amount was far to much fr Tottenham Hotspurs, who just walked out of the deal. But Chelsea did sell Andre Schurie in the end for a sum of 24.1 million pounds to the German club Wolfs burg. Chelsea then used the money to buy the Colombian Juan Cuadrdao from Fiorentina for 24. Million pounds.
Come let us be honest here as Manchester United having nothing to boast or even for the matter be proud about their win in the F.A.Cup over Cambridge . As the club Cambridge play in the second tier in England. And by the way the cost of the Eleven Manchester United payers that played in the F.A cup was valued at 231 million pounds. And Cambridge Eleven players cost the club a small amount or for the fact a big Zero 0 pound. And Manchester United had to play a second leg match as the first was a draw 0-0. When we look deeper into the two teams we can really see the ocean of a difference here. 1)For example Radamel Falcao gets a weekly salary of 265,000 pounds.While on the other hand the highest paid Cambridge United player Luke Chadwick gets a small amount 0f 1,500 pounds a week.. Last summer Manchester United spent 151 million pounds on their transfer.While Cambridge United could not make a transfer buy for a full decade. And it took Manchester United 115 minutes to score a goal against Cambridge. Cambridge lost but pocketed 1.5 million pounds , for forcing a replay.

The Belgian footballer Eden Hazard who is playing his club football in England with Chelsea, is now refusing to sign a new contract at the club. According to THE METRO it is all about money , as usual at Chelsea . He is now getting 170,000 pounds a week as salary. But he is unhappy and wants it risen to the figure of 300,000 as a weekly salary. He will be then get the same amount as some other famous footballers like Wayne Rooney,Sergio Aguero, Robin Van Persie, who all get a weekly salary of 300,000 pounds. It is also said that Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas to get a weekly salary of 300,000pounds. But will Chelsea increase his salary that much is to be seen, as Chelsea are careful where the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULE is concerned. But both Real Madrid and P.S.G are willing to meet the demand and buy him as well.
Liverpool can really boast having players who were not only good but also very loyal to their club, as these three players have each played over seven hundred times for Liverpool. Now a days with so much tinkering and rotating of players reaching this magical number are indeed rare, and will become harder to reach each year.

The Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea, has been offered a new contract at Manchester United , with a huge weekly salary of 140,000 pounds , this is more then what Joe Hart is getting as a weekly salary at Manchester City, he will get 120,000 pounds as a weekly salary at Manchester City. But there is no doubt about it that David De Gea has single handily saved the Manchester United team on many a time.

Was it really true that Arsenal were indeed a one man team, here we are referring to the Chilean Alexis Sanchez. B ut with the clash with Aston Vila, was anything but a one man match winner for Arsenal., Alexis Sanchez was out injured with a hamstring injury.But it made the slightest difference here, as Arsenal defeated Aston Villa with a score of 5-0, and it was the first time this season that Arsenal scored five goals in a match.
