In the second semi final Argentina hammered Paraguay for a mighty six. Now to be honest Argentina were shy of scoring goals in the Copa America. But in the semi finals goals just kept getting scored, till now Argentina would just scrape through with a single precious goal win. But with Paraguay things were different Angel Di Mario scored two goals, Marco Rojo scored one, Sergio Aguero scored one , Javier Pastoree scored one and Gonzalo Higuain scored one goal's as well. But even if Lionel Messi did not score a single goal here , he played a big part in providing assists for the goals.
According to THE METRO Arsenal could very well have a pair of twins from Germany playing in the midfield . The twins are Lars Bender and Sven Bender. Lars Bender plays his club football with Bayern Laverkusen and Sven Bender plays his club football in Germany with Borussia Dortmund. But Arsenal may ask why does the club need them, well the simple and honest answer is they are both very young and Arsenal want them in their long time plans, they willreplace Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flameni.
I strongly feel that the Tottenham Hotspurs are quite wrong here. As they claim that their French goalkeeper Hugo Loris is a far better goalkeeper then Petr Cech the now Arsenal goalkeeper. The goal keeping of Petr Cech is far superior then Hugo Loris, for example Petr Cech in the year 2004/2005 let in only fifteen goals in as Chelsea goalkeeper, it is feet not possible for Hugo Loris to do let us be honest here, h has the second most clean sheets in four hundred games for Chelsea he has 150 clean sheets, David James holds the record with 170 clean sheets Can Hugo Loris match these records. The answer is a loud no. So Arsenal did not make a mistake in buying Petr Cech.
The Ivory Coast striker Gervinho, who plays for A.S.Roma, after a move from Arsenal. Now A.S.Roma want to balance their books and fall in line with FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES. A offer was made for him by the Dubai club Al Jazira . And all was going on well and the deal was almost done. But problems and big problems arose when it came down to the money matters between the two of them He started demanding unreasonable things . Like he wanted a private island of his own , a private helicopter as well, he also wanted air tickets for all his extended family members as well to the Ivory Coast, guess what happened. The club said they did not want him at all deal closed back to Roma.
Now Chelsea have entered the race to sign the talented French midfielder Paul Pogba.He will be a costly player no doubt around sixty million pounds. Now Chelsea have entered the race they are now willing to offer cash as well as a player for the French man. Chelsea are offering 35.5 million pounds plus the Brazilian star Oscar costing now 21.3 million pounds that adds up to 56.8 million pounds. Barcelona have offered a straight money deal of 56.8 million pounds for him. And Mqanchester City have offered the most money for the French man , they are offering Juventus a total of seventy one million pounds , sheer madness I would say. But Paul Pogba has said he will wait till january to move to Barcelona.
History repeats itself in Italian football , with its yearly scandals, in all divisions. Antonio Pulvirenti the owner of the Italian club Catania, which plays in the Seira B. He admitted in court that he arranged for match fixing in five matches at least. He also said he had paid out a sum of 500,000 Euros to prevent his club Catania falling into the third division . Now there are seven others accused in this match fixing scandal. So we will have to be very patient for the verdict in this match fixing scandal.
The Belgian striker who plays his club football in England with Aston Villa, is wanted by many clubs , mainly Liverpool. But Aston Villa have said that they will not reduce the price for the Belgian striker Cristian Benteke one bit. Liverpool are trying all the tricks in the trade to get him as he is a proven striker , and let us be honest here for the past few seasons he has single handely kept Aston Villa in the E.P.L. And Aston Villa want 32.5 million pounds for him, and there is a reason to for that. Aston Villa will have to pay his Belgian club Genk 3.8 million pounds quite a lot you see.

he Italian press are now saying Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wil not be signing the Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal from Juventus after all this summer , he is 28 years old. But it looks more and more likely that Arsene Wenger will eventually sign up the Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho, who is by the way playing in the finals under 21 cup against Sweden . The signing may be done after the finals. Could the case of Arturo Vidal case driving under alcohol during the Copa America play a big part in his decision. But Arsenal were always keen on William Carvalho for the past two years.
After the Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmicheal left the club , Alex Ferguson had a great deal of trouble finding a good goalkeeper. Goalkeepers like Fabian Barthez, Mark Bosnich all failed with the rest. Then Alex Ferguson signed 32 year old Dutch goalkeeper Edwin Van der Sar for just two million pounds from Fulham. Edwin Van DER SAr lost his place in Juventus , after becoming the first non Italian goalkeeper to keep goal for Juventus. But he lost his place at Juventus to the signing of Gianlughi Buffon from Parma, for a record 32 .4 million pounds. Sir Alex Ferguson openly regretted not buying Edwin Van der Sar from Juventus then. Arsenal had them same problem after David Seamen left Arsenal , then Jens Leahmen studied the boat, but now it will be Petr Cech to stop the goals.
Now let us compare the amount Arsenal paid Chelsea for Petr Cech. Arsenal paid Chelsea 10.9 million pounds, you can say eleven million pounds. Now let me remind you that Arsenal paid Juventus a sum of eleven million pounds for the French striker and the Arsenal darling Theirry Henry . We can now expect a wonderful season for Arsenal. Petr Cech could be the buy of the season, as last years best buy of the season was also a Arsenal player Alexis Sanchez.
The pervert Chilean defender Gonzalo Jara who is habituated with provoking players when at a world cup qualifier or a Copa America. He did it with Luis Suarez as well. and the 2015 Copa America he did it with Edison Cavani putting his finger in his anus, Edison Cavani retaliated and was shown a red card. Now he faces a three match ban so he can not play any part in the Copa America , and he was fined 4,775 pounds, far to little a punishment I would say a few months would do. and the fine is just peanuts I would say.
At long last the long wait for the transfer of Petr Cech from Chelsea to Arsenal is well and truly over. Petr Cech passed the medical at Arsenal and has now signed a four year contract at Arsenal till the year 2019. Arsenal paid a amount of ten. nine million pounds to Chelsea for the very talented goalkeeper. In the year 2019 Petr Cech will be 37 years old . No problem here at all Dino Zoff the Italian goalkeeper won the world cup at 40 years in 1982.He is also the oldest captain at forty years to lift the famous world cup. So Petr Cech can still play on. The main reason he chose Arsenal over P.S.G was as his family are settled in London for eleven years.
Liverpool are desperate to sign the Aston Villa , Belgian striker Cristian Benteke, the Aston Villa board have put a buy out clause for the Belgian striker, which stands at thirty two million pounds. Now Brendan Rodgers has offered Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood the Italian striker Fabio Borini and Ricky Lambert as part of reducing the amount from thirty two million pounds to far less. Please note these two players Brendan Rodgers is offering were utter failures at Liverpool last year, what a shame on the Liverpool manager he should have offered some good player instead.
One thing is very sure here Liverpool are surely going to sell their winger Raheem Sterling soon, they can wrangle about the money , but why can we say this. You see Liverpool have made six to seven signings so far , this clearly means that Raheem Sterling will be going out and Liverpool will have a lot of money from this sale. We know what happened at Tottenham Hotspurs , after Gareth Bale was sold, they got a lot of players and spent one hundred and ten million pounds on them. So we are seeing the same thing happen at Liverpool.
The Southampton s fans are bound to be angry when they hear the latest news. As it is they are feeling cheated by Liverpool as they felt Nathaniel Clyne was worth much more then just 12.5 million pounds. Now it appears Southampton will have to pay Crystal Palace two million pounds for selling Nathaniel Clyne . It appears in an earlier agreement made between Southampton and Crystal Palace , Clynes earlier club, and it said that if Southampton did sell Nathaniel Clyne to any other club , then Crystal Palace would get a certain percentage of the money you see. Now it is a windfall for Crystal Palace ,theyare getting a solid two million pounds fromSouthampton.
In the ladies world cup England defeated Canada 2-0 It has been really long since a English football team reached the semi finals at a major tournament. Last time England achieved such greatness was at the 1990 world cup in Ital Here the goals were scored by Lucy Broze and Jody Taylor. Now the four countries playing in the semi finals are U.S.A. Germany, England and Japan. Germany play the U.S.A. And England play Japan. Please let us not take Japan lightly as they are the reigning world champions by the way. David Beckham and prince William were all praise for the Ladies footballer of England. Harry Redknapp said the Ladies have shown the men how things are done in the world cup here.

As Sergio Ramos and Iker Casillas along with Cristiano Ronaldo showed their displeasure when the Real Madrid presiident Florentino Perez went and sacked Carlo Anchelotti. Now Sergi ramos wants a move from Real Madrid , and Real Madrid have put the selling price for him at sixty three to sixty five million pounds. Now Sergio Ramos before leaving on a holiday has told his club to sort it all out by the time he returns to Madrid. Now it has become more exciting as Manchester City the moneyed club wants to buy Sergio Ramos as well, money has never been a problem for them. Now let us see which club will get his signature in the end.
Asmir Begovic , who now plays his football with Stoke City in the E.P.L. Now that the Chelsea long serving goalkeeper of eleven long years is more or less a Arsenal goalkeeper. It has left the place as second choice as goalkeeper vacant. Jose Mourinho wanted Asmir Begovic for eight million pounds., But now Aston Villa have entered the race for him now and the VIllans offered ten million pounds for him. Now Asmir Begovic has said he has no desire what so ever to play second fiddle at Chelsea to Thiaburt Courios.
It is reported in THE DAILY MIRROR that Manchester United and the French giants P.S.G are going to make a swap of two very big players indeed. The two players will be the Argentinean winger Angel Di Maria with the Uruguayan striker Edison Cavani. They are both very costly and very highly talented footballers in their own right. In fact P.S.G were very keen to buy angel Di Maria from Real Madrid but they were caught failing in the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES. Real Madrid had added a clause when they made the sale of Angel Di Maria ,to Manchester United. It was that Manchester United would never sell Angel Di Maria to Barcelona, that just shows how scared Real Madrid are of F.C.Barcelona.
The Colombian goalkeeper David Ospina now wants to leave Arsenal, as he has no desire what so ever to play second fiddle to the new goalkeeper coming at Arsenal soon Petr Cech. But he did some brilliant goalkeeping in his Copa america match Colombia verses Argentina, he even kept out Lionel Messi who tried to score a goal with a header. Now his price has risen in the market., as clubs in Europe have come for him the Turkish giants Fenerbache want him, so does the French club Olympique Marseille. So let us see where he will end up. It will be a sad day for the Arsenal fans.
It is reported that the Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal , who plays his club football in Italy with Juventus, THE OLD LADY OF TURIN.. But it is said that Juventus first had to sell a player to generate funds to buy another player. That deal is already done and signed , for a total amount of 21 million pounds, and the transfer would be declared official once the Copa America is over, in Chile. It is said his countryman Alexis Sanchez had sweet talked him tto sign for Arsenal. Manchester United have missed out on him here, they are buying the French midfielder Morgan Scheinerldin.
Let us be honest here was the very bad season of Radamel Falcao Garcia, at Manchester United really a blip or was it a start of a decline.? You see he scored only four goals last season, not the player we knew at F.C.Porto, at Atletico Madrid. To make matters worse for him he is just a shadow in the Copa America. Now will he shine at Chelsea or not.? Take Diego Costa for example at the 2014 world cup in Brazil he failed to score a single goal for Spain. But for Chelsea he did very well and he did score ample number of goals. So let us see what the 2015/ 2016 has for him.
Saturday, June 27, 2015
The famous Argentinean striker Carlos Tevez , who played in England with West Ham united, Manchester United , Manchester City and his final club in Europe was Juventus in Italy, also called THE OLD LADY OF TURIN.. He has now gone and joined his boyhood club in Argentina. But what is not known is for how many years does he have a contract for, and neither do we know for how much did he join Boco Juniors for. But one thing was his drawback he never stayed more then three years at a perticular club, he did give trouble everywhere he played, you can say honestly he has never been loyal to a single club.
have a closer look at Petr Cech, he joined Chelsea from Renees in 2004. He helped Chelsea win the E.P.L after fifty years and Russian oil money came in. He has played 500 games for Chelsea. He has kept 150 clean sheets as well. The record for the most clean sheets in the E.P.L is 170 clean sheets . It is held by David James, who was surprisingly called Calamity James. Petr Cech in 2004/2005 season let in only fifteen goals in.
Friday, June 26, 2015
Aston Villa have offered Stoke City ten million pounds for their goalkeeper Asmir Begovic . Now this goalkeeper is good , but he has made it very clear that he is not prepared to sit on the bench and collect his weekly salary. Now he is wanted by Chelsea, but he is not ready to be a bench warmer. He is also wanted by Manchester United to replace David De Gea if he moves to Real Madrid.. He is also wanted by Tottenham Hotspurs if Hugo Loris does move to Manchester United .
With the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona for seventy five million pounds, Liverpool brought many players from Southampton, sadly many were not good at all,. But Luis Suarez was never replaced , to be honest such players can not be replaced. Now another player whom they will never replace is Steven Gerrard.. But they , Liverpool have spent sixty one million pounds buying only Southampton players, the latest is Nathanille Clyne.
It looks very much likely that Petr Cech who has arrived at Arsenal for a medical check up will soon be a Arsenal player. Arsene Wenger wanted to strengthen the team with a good goalkeeper, and thirty three goalkeeper Petr Cech will be indeed a good buy for just eleven million pounds, not bad for a thirty three year old. Jose Mourinho had no desire what so ever to sell Petr Cech to a club playing in the E.P.L , leave alone Arsenal. But the final word was with the Chelsea owner Roman Abrohmovick, who released for eleven years wonderful service to Chelsea. But this will squeeze David Ospina the Colombian goalkeeper out of Arsenal. But let us be honest year as Petr Cech will get a weekly salary of 100, 000 pounds. No matter how rich a club is they can not afford to keep a goalkeeper on the bench the entire season, getting a weekly salary of 100,000 pounds.
Just as Manchester United are playing tough , and want a record price for a goalkeeper, breaking the previous record of thirty three million pounds for the Italian goalkeeper Gianlughi Buffon, which Juventus paid Parma . Now Real Madrid are asking a record price for a defender , they are asking Manchester United to pay ninety million Euros or sixty five million pounds for Sergio Ramos. Now Sergio Ramos has gone on a two week holiday, but he told Florentino Perez to settle everything by then.
The Chilean defender Gonzalo jara is sick in the head, as well as a dirty player no doubt, in the 2015 Copa America played in Chile, he provoked Edison Cavani by fingering the Uruguayan strikers anus, reports also say he smelt his finger , proof he is sick no doubt about it. By the way thisis not the first time he has fallen so low, in the last world cup qualifier he pulled the balls of Luis Suarez hoping that Luis Suarez would get a red card, he also fingered the anus of Gonzalo Higuain once. Why Chile allow to take him in the national team is not understood at all. Mind you he played for Brighton, Nottingham Forest a, and now he plays in Germany with Mainz. Mainz have already sad that rthey are selling him, and our ready to face losses as well.
according to THE DAILY MIRROR Arsenal will make an offer for the Algerian defender Faouzi Ghaulam from Napoli for a sum of eleven million pounds. He was got to Napoli by the Spanish coach Rafael Benitez , who was the manager of Napoli. So now let us see if he dos make a move, or Napoli ask a silly price for him.
The Argentinean winger Angel Di Maria can not make a transfer move to Barcelona from Manchester United. Even though Lionel Messi is trying very hard to convince Angel Di Maria o make a move from Manchester United to Barcelona in Spain. But it now appears that Real Madrid added a special clause in the sale deal they made between Real Madrid and Manchester United . The clause was that Angel Di Maria would never be sold by Manchester United to F.C.Barcelona. That was the big fear Real Madrid had of him.
When some big clubs came for the Argentinean striker Gonzalo Higuain, clubs like Arsenal, Liverpool and A.C.Milan. But the Italian club from Naples Napoli were not at all keen to sell him . They have put a unrealistic price for him,. Now Napoli have put a buy out clause , and they say any club who are interested in buying him must pay the amount which stands at sixty seven million pounds., 67 million pounds. Here Napoli have failed to qualify for a champion league spot next year, and they are demanding silly prices. Gonzalo Higuain openly said he wants to move to a club that is playing in the champion league next year, he is not interested in playing in the Europa League.

Manchester United have the money and this time their budget is one hundred and fifty million pounds similar to last year. So that does not mean to buy any one you see, Sergio Ramos is almost thirty years old now. At Real Madrid he is getting 4.4 Million pounds a year as salary. He now wants a increased pay of 6 .2 million pounds , Real Madrid have not agreed yet to this. Manchester United are willing to give Sergio Ramos a yearly pay of 7.3 million pounds. Sergio Ramos has gone on a leave right now, but he has told Real Madrid board to see to it that his demands are settled when he returns back to Madrid.
The Chilean defender Gonzalo Jara who now plays in Germany with Mainz. He is guilty of provoking the Uruguayan striker Edison Cavani in their quarter final match between Chile and Uruguay . The Chilean striker Edison Cavani had his anus fingered by the Chilean defender Gonzalo Jara. But as the referee did not see this dirty incident, but he saw Edison Cavani slap Gonzalo Jara, and Edison Cavani who was on a yellow card got his second yellow followed by the red card. But the F.I.F.A board have given Gonzalo Jara a ban for the rest of the Copa America matches, mind you Chile are in the Semi Finals. The punishment should be harder on Gonzalo Jara as in the South America world cup qualifiers , Gonzalo Jara pulled the gentiles of Luis Suarez, in a hope that Luis Suarez would be red carded. He should be banned for life now.
It is being a bit stupid and greedy on the part of Manchester United, to expect Real Madrid to pay them a record fee for a goalkeeper, they want over thirty three million pounds for David De Gea . And honestly he is not worth that much money, they want more then 32.4 million pounds, this was the amount Juventus paid Parma. for Gianlughi Buffon. Now please do not compare these two goalkeepers. Gianlughi Buffon is a legend , a Icon and is playing well at thirty seven years he is still the number one goalkeper. He has won the Champion League, The World cup with Italy he has not yet won a European cup with Italy till date. Let me ask you has David De Gea won any of these famous trophies? No sir you can not compare these two goalkeepers they are miles apart, so the price should be less twenty million pounds would do.
Petr Cech has his move to Arsenal delayed as his medical will be done next week , either on Monday or Tuesday. Once the medical is done then only will Arsenal announce the transfer. The fee is fixed at 10.9 million pounds, and he will get a weekly salary of a hundred thousand pounds. 100,000 pounds. The personal terms have been agreed t long ago. Now Chelsea want a spare goalkeeper and they want the Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, but Aston Villa are also ready to pay Stoke City eight million pounds.
Real Madrid must come to their senses first , Arsenal are in no mood to sell their French defender, it is a proven fact that when Laurent plays for Arsenal have won more of their matches. Now offering just twenty one , 21 million pounds for him is plain peanuts, Arsenal are not interested in the deal. If Mangala a is worth 32 thirty two million pounds , and David Luiz is worth fifty million pounds . Then it is clear Laurent Koscielny is worth sixty, 60 million pounds or more. And by the way Arsenal want to build a team to win the E.P.L no selling then I am afraid. Real Madrid can look elsewhere.
The transfer window does not open till 1/7/2015. But plenty of stories Like Segio Ramos to Manchester United, Sergi Aguero to Real Madrid , Petr Cech to Arsenal and Raheem Sterling to every club. But the player who made the most passes last season, more then Lionel Messi . Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne, Nolito . This player could ;leave Olympique Marseille , for a mid table club West Ham United in England. 1) Dimitri Payet. Olympique Marseille. 135 Passes. 2)Kevin De Bruyne. Wolfsburg . 112 Passes. 3) Eden Hazard . Chelsea. 101 Passes. 4) Nolito. Celta Vigo 96. Passes. 5) Cesc Fabregas. Chelsea 95 Passes. 6) Lionel Messi . Barcelona. 95 Passes.
It looks more and more likely that David De Gea will leave Manchester United, for the Spanish capital Madrid. Now he has even vacated the house he lived in in Bowden, and the landlord has put the house up for sale , the price is 2.75 million pounds. So let us be realistic here it is not a question of if David De Gea is leaving Manchester United for Real Madrid , but when is he leaving, the deal between the two clubs could be very, very near for him to do this.
In the Copa America match between Chile and Uruguay , the Chilean defender Gonzalo Jara tried very hard to see that the Uruguayan striker was red carded and sent of, at last he without any shame fingered the bottom of Edison Cavani, in full view of millions on at the stadium and those watching on Television. Naturally Edison Cavani retaliated by slapping Gonzalo Jara, which lead to a straight red card. But the blind bat of a referee did not see it , neither did the two linesmen. But it was there on tTHE METRO FOR ALL TO SEE. The Urugay coach Mr Tabarez was also sent of when he protested the incident.
England wre bound to be knocked out early in the under 21 championship. The person Gareh Southgate is not the culprit here but some of the players. Here players like Luke Shaw, Jack Wilshere, Stones,Wilfred Zaha, Raheem Sterling , Harry Kane , Chamberlain and Jones . Were all on a holiday and did not want o play in the competition shame on them, these fools have no pride in wearing the English three lion jersey. The reason is clear they are paid far to much money to soon.
Real Madrid sure are getting nervous , they have become like tigers with blistered paws . Segio Ramos has made it crystal clear he wants to leave the Spanish giants Real Madrid, his contract talks all but stalled, with no hope of a settlement in the end. Now Real Madrid have started looking around for a replacement, and their eyes have fallen on the French central back Laurent Koscielny , who plays his club football at Arsenal. Laurent Koscielny has now made a strong partner with Per Mertsacker and may not be keen to leave Arsenal.. He joined Arsenal for ten million pounds, but Real Madrid are willing to offer twenty one million pounds for the Arsenal man.
Manchester United have made it very clear to Real Madrid that there can be no direct swap between David De Gea and Sergio Ramos going the other way. Now Manchester United have offered Real Madrid a sum of thirty million ponds for Sergio Ramos. But one thing is clear the price is bound to rise further more , if Raheem Sterling is to be sold by Liverpool for fifty ,million pounds Sergio Ramos is worth more then fifty million pounds. Sergio Ramos has won the world cup, European Cup and the Champion League as well, mind you Raheem Sterling has won nothing yet not even a F.A cup or the E.P.L Cup. Only Sergio Ramos and Iker Casillas had the courage at Real Madrid along with Cristiano Ronaldo to speak out against the sacking of Carlo Anchelotti. So are these two paying a high price for that?

Arsenal paid his club in Romania 100,000 Euros or 71,000 pounds. And if this young lad des shine like Theo Walcott, and Alex OxaldeChamberlain have done it is money really wisely spent.
Brendan Rodgers is walking on a thin rope at Liverpool in this new season. If by chance Liverpool loose to many matches early on or for the matter get a very slow start for the season then you can be very sure that Brendan Rodgers will be sacked. The board will look at last season as well as the new one . And mind you their fantastic captain Steven Gerrard is no longer there , to score goals for Liverpool, last season he was Liverpool s top scorer with eight goals not enough . Previous year Luis Suarez scored 31 goals Danniel Sturridge scored 25 goals. And by the way the German manager Jurgen Klopp is unemployed right now, all ready to take over at Liverpool.
The German striker Lukas Podolski has now signed up with the Turkish giants Galatasaray , the price is a very small amount it is only 2.1 million Pounds.

Manchester United want to do a clean swap between these two Spaniards, Manchester United want to give Real Madrid David De Gea free and to get Sergio Ramos from Real Madrid free. But the president of Real Madrid is not having anything of that he wants Manchester United to give David De Gea and also pay a sum of twenty million pounds for Sergio Ramos. Now Manchester United are not ready to get bullied ,and are willing to let David De Gea complete the twelve months of his contract at Old Trafford, and may sell him out in the January transfer window.
The Brazilian Roberto Firmino has now gone and signed up for Liverpool, for a huge twenty eight million pounds . Now Manchester United were very keen to buy Roberto Firmino, and the media even said that the deal was a done and dusted matter. But Liverpool pulled the rabbit from the hat , and hijacked the entire deal.. Now the very big question on the minds of the Liverpool fans would be , if Roberto Firmino could fill the shoes of Luis Suarez , yes those shoes are very big to fill up I know. But this is how the deal was done.? The executive of Liverpool Ian Ayre flew down to Chile, where the Copa America is being played and then got the deal signed for the Brazilian Roberto Firimino done and dusted.
The Spanish goalkeeper Jose Pepe Reina who played for Liverpool for a few years and then Bayern Munich after a years long loan spell at Napoli.

In a match for the Seattle Saunders which ended with seven men only. Clint Dempsey was very angry at the referee for showing a red card to a fellow team mate , but in his anger Clint Dempsey tore up the referees notebook , leading to a straight red card.
It is plain and very clear Liverpool failed to replace Luis Suarez , Luis Suarez scored thirty one goals the previous season and Daniel Sturridge scored twenty five goals. In the 2014/2015 season the top goal scorer was Steven Gerrard with just eight goals. Danniel Sturridge was injured for most of the season so the job was even harder for Liverpool. Liverpool got seventy five million pounds for selling Luis Suarez, mind you the price was originally a hundred million pounds, but Barcelona refused to pay that much after the long ban and the biting incident of Luis Suarez at the world cup in Brazil. But they wasted the money on players not worth it.And with Steven Gerrard gone it will be even harder as two posts will have to be filled with god players now.
The Colombian striker Jackson Martinez has now signed a four year deal with the Spanish club. They needed a striker badly as their Croatian striker Mario Manduzikic has now gone and signed for Juventus, as Carlos Tevez has said he wants to go back home to Argentina , and play for his childhood club Boco Juniors. Atletico Madrid needed the Colombian striker badly , the Madrid club paid F.C.Porto his buy out clause 31 million Euros . But one thing is clear Jackson Martinez is a confused man for sure, first he said he was joining Arsenal, then he said he was signing for A.c.Milan now the Atletico Madrid transfer is a done and dusted matter.
Luis Nani was brought to fill the shoes of Cristiano Ronaldo, and they were very big boots to fill let us be honest, naturally Luis Nani could not do justice for Manchester United. He was given on loan to Sporting Lisbon last season. He did cast a impression in the football world, now he is flying to Turkey for a medical at Fenerbache. Fenerbache will buy him for four million pounds, and also give him a yearly salary of 2.8 million pounds. At least he will be happier playing regular football there , as he was considered surplus at Manchester United.

It is very sad that the same football club were bankrupt twice in a period of ten years, something not likely in England. The Italian football club Parma , was owned by the diary giant Parmalat , it had 36,000 employees it was managed by Mr Tanzi , and i the year after investing heavily in the club and getting the golden generation of Parma players won trophies two U.E.F.A cups The Italian cup and so on. But in the year 2003 Parmalat and Parma were brook and were declared bankrupt, and a court later sentenced Mr Tanzi to seventeen long years in jail. parma days in the top tier were over. relegated again and again. Then this season they were at the bottom of the table in Italy and that was not all they were bankrupt for the second time in ten short years. Players were not payed for the entire season, there was no electricity in the rooms and no hot water for a shower after a game. And as the club was put up for sale , there were no buyers or bidders either. So they are in the forth tier now in Italy. Parma were milked royally I must say.
The DAILY MAIL, THE DAILY MIRROR and THE METRO all report that Petr Cech has signed for Arsenal from Chelsea, for a Eleven million pounds, it was originally ten million pounds, and he will be getting a weekly salary of 100,000 pounds, making him the highest paid goalkeeper at Arsenal. But neither Chelsea or Arsenal have announced anything about his signing. It could be delayed as Chelsea want to sign Robert Green from Queen Park Rangers, and that is taking time. But the first match Petr Cech could play for Arsenal will be the seasons curtain opener the Comunitty Shield played against Chelsea. The winner of the F.A.Cup and the E.P.L winner open the new season. The Chelsea fans have branded Petr Cech a snake and a traitor . But John Terry honestly said Petr Cech would save Arsenal ten to twelve points in the season, very valuable points to. This shows that Petr Cech has signed for Arsenal.
Sergio Ramos the Spaniard who won the Champion League, European Cup and the world cup with Spain , has his relations with the real Madrid become very sour indeed, but why did it become sour. He , Segio Ramos, was angry with the president of Real Madrid Florentino Perez for sacking the Italian manager recently Mr Carlo Anchelotti, who won the Champion League for Real Madrid, after a gap a few years. Cristiano Ronaldo to was angry about the sacking, but Real Madrid would not dare to sell Cristiano Ronaldo. So Sergio Ramos was made the scapegoat for the mess. Now Manchester Unitd have shown interest in buying Sergio Ramos for 56.5 million pounds. And what makes this story possible is that Sergio Ramos is learning English.

The Croatian striker Mario Manduzik has gone and signed a contract with Juventus . The deal is for a period of four years and was worth 13.6 million pounds . He has joined Juventus from the Spanish club Atletico Madrid.
It is indeed a sad day for the Italian club Parma, they are now finely declared bankrupt, and they were under the hands of a administrator for quite a few months now. He had tried to get a buyer for the club , but one failed to come forward on that date set by him, and the other did not meet the standard needed to buy the club. Now as the club sadly could not be sold it has been demoted to the forth tier in Italy. Last year they came last in Italy so automatically they went to the second division. Their money matters made them go to the third , and as they can not find a buyer their now in the forth tier. A very sad day for Parma and football. But we must remember famous players played for Parma, Gianlughi Buffon was sold as a the worlds costliest goalkeeper from Parma. So did Fabio Canevaro the only defender ever to win the F.I.F.A footballer of the year, another player was the French footballer Lilian Thuram and Hernon Crespo as well. Mind Parma also won the U.E.F.A cup once.

The board of Directors at Real Madrid were not keen at first to sign Rafael Benitez at first, the silly reason they wanted him to loose first. Now these Real Madrid fools should remember that they want him for his footballing brains and not his weight here they are paying him for his football only and not how much he looses or gains weight. Last year these fans wanted their Colombian star James Rodriguez to force his wife to have plastic surgery to look more prettier. By the way she is the sister of David Ospina the Colombian goalkeeper. The Real Madrid fans must realize that the club paid sixty three million pounds to buy James Rodriguez and did not buy his wife by the way. A stupid club with even more stupid fans , disgusting I must say.
Lionel Messi who is only twenty seven years old has now played a hundred games for Argentina and he has scored forty six goals for Argentina. This still leaves him some way from the records here. Javier Zanetti holds they record for the most caps which stand at 146 games for Argentina. Gabrial Batistuta holds the record for the most goals for Argentina they stand at fifty four goals.
The Argentinean striker Gonzalo Higuain who plays his club football in Italy with Napoli . But now he has clearly told Napoli he wants to clearly leave Napoli and join a club playing in the Champion League, so top clubs in Europe are alert on him. Clubs Like Manchester United , Juventus Arsenal are on red alert. Arsenal were keen on Gonzalo Higuain when Real Madrid was selling him , but Napoli purchased him. So as he is very keen to leave Napoli will be forced to sell him.
Arsenal have decided to increase the salary of young 23 year old Jack Wilshere and that means double the amount t, in other words he will get 100,000 pounds a week a hundred thousand pounds. Here he will have to thank Manchester City for it. If they fail to sign young Raheem Sterling from Liverpool, they are now going to offer fifty million pounds for him, Liverpool had flatly rejected the earlier amount of forty million pounds. Manchester City want to increase their home grown players so Jack Wilshere was chosen in case they fail to buy Raheem Sterling. But Jack Wilshere will have to give a pledge in writing of being in his best behavior at Arsenal.
The Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal is indeed very keen to buy the Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cieleesen from Ajax.After all he played in the 2014 world cup under Louis Van Gaal as the Dutch goalkeeper. But the Ajax manager Frank De Boer has made it very clear that he will not be letting his goalkeeper live Ajax to any club. After all he had recently signed a new contract and there are three years on it left . So Ajax are justified in refusing to sell their goalkeeper. Any way he has the Spaniard Victor Valdes with him at Manchester United and avid De Gea has not yet been sold.
It is getting funnier and funnier that Manchester City are now willing to offer Liverpool a total of fifty million pounds for Raheem Sterling mind you he is only twenty years old now, such money will surely go to his head, his weekly salary will have to be large something like two hundred and fifty thousand pounds. He will not be the same player he was at Liverpool for sure. Now the joke will Liverpool increase his price to sixty million pounds ? You must remember that Liverpool made some very bad costly buys in the past two years. Now will Liverpool try and milk Manchester City, who are trying to get a home grown player as well in one deal, we must not forget James Milner a home grown player has joined Liverpool and Micah Richards has joined West Ham United free like Milner. They also wanted to get Jack Wilshere from Arsenal for forty million pounds, what a hope. Mind you Raheem Sterling can be either aSUPER STAR OR SUPER SUB CAREER FINISHED.
Charlie Austin the Queen Park Rangers striker who scored eighteen goals last season but his big efforts failed to keep Queen Park Rangers from relegation. It is all about goals to stay up you see, and others at Queen Park Rangers failed to score those goals. It now looks like West Ham United have beaten Newcastle United for his signature after all. Slaven Bilic will be thrilled. A little about Charlie Austin, he was a brick layer some years ago, he was playing in the ninth tier in English football a few years ago , he played for clubs like Swindon and so on.

Manchester City look like they have lost their marbles I would say. They are willing to spend madly, and so making players over rated in the end. 1) They have offered forty million for Raheem Sterling. And now they have offered forty million pounds to buy Jack Wilshere from Arsenal. Both are young and such prices could ruin their entire careers. Becoming super Subs instead of becoming super stars. Rio Ferdinand says they are joking.
Arsenal have made a bid for William Carvalho, who plays his club fotoball in Portugal , with Sporting Lisbon. The price is huge it is 28.5 million pounds. But you may ask how good he is , the best one to answer that question is the English football players in the twenty one world cup, England lost to Portugal 1-0, and guess who kept Harry Kane out , it as William Carvalho.. Arsenal have been after William Carvalho for over two years now, and now he may move to Arsenal.
The Russian football club Dynamo Moscow have been thrown out of the Europa League next year. They club has for the past three years failed to balance their books. In other words they have been facing losses for the past three years.So breaking Financial Fair Play Rules all together.
Serbia defeated Brazil in the under twenty world cup in New Zealand The game was taken into extra time as it ended 1-1 after ninety minutes.. But the SSerbians scored the winning goal in the 118th minute. Now Serbia win their first under twenty tile , but they won it back in 1987 as a united country called Yugoslavia.

It is now revealed that Manchester United have missed out on these two famous strikers. 1) Mario Mandzukic 2) Edison Cavani. Mario Mandzukic will be joining the Italian club called Juventus THE OLD LADY OF TURIN. From Atletico Madrid., jhe will replace Carlos Tevez who will be joining Boco Juniors in Argentina. And Edison Cavani will not be leaving P.S.G in the new season . So let us be honest here Manchester United have lost two real goal scorers.
Petr Cech the Czech Republic goalkeeper who was playing his club football with Chelsea in England , for the past ten years. Now he is on the cusp of moving to Arsenal as their number one goalkeeper,even if he is thirty three years old now, he still is the best. Arsenal will be paying him a weekly salary of of a hundred thousand pounds, 100,000 pounds. The French champions were willing to pay him a even higher weekly salary, they had offered him 150,000 as a weekly salary. He has rejected that transfer on the reason that hs family is well settled in London so it would be Arsenal he is joining.
The race is getting far to hot to sign now Tottonhem Hotspurs have also joined the race to sign the midfielder from Monaco Geoferry Kongdobia Formerly it was only Arsenal to sign him for twenty five million pounds, now A.C.Milan has also joined the race. But only Arsenal are playing in the Champion League next year, so he may prefer Arsenal to Tottenham Hotspurs, who are playing in EUROPA Cup. While A.C.Milan finished tenth in Italy.
The French winger Samir Nasri , who plays his club football with Manchester City is told that he will be sold to make way for new players, as Manchester City are now going on a shopping spree ,, with a aim to spend 150, one hundred and fifty million pounds on various players starting with Raheem Sterling , but Liverpool have flatly rejected forty million pounds for Raheem Sterling. This clearly shows he would still have been playing if he was at Arsenal. And serves him well greedy footballer that he is.
The Spaniard Santiago Cazorla is not going anywhere ,and he wants to honour his two years that remain at Arsenal. The stories of him returning to his homeland Spain and play for Atletico Madrid are all fruitless story and should not be taken seriously by the Arsenal fans at all. He scored eight goals last season and chipped in a great deal of assists as well, he is known for his free kicks as well, the previous year he scored a beauty against Hull City. So the Arsenal fans can cheer up after all as he was the clubs darling.
There is a very good possibility that the move for Petr Cech is indeed very close and this is why. The Arsenal goalkeeping coach Tony Roberts has left Arsenal and joined Swansea. This will make way for Cristope Lollichon the goalkeeping coach of Petr Cech joining Arsenal But the two big questions remain will Chelsea let the goalkeeping coach leave for Arsenal. And when will Robert Green be signed from Queen Park Rangers.
It is now twenty years since the silky Dutch man or the non flying Dutch man joined Arsenal, it was in 1995 from Inter Milan for a then club record of 7.5 million pounds, think about it will you. It was before Arsene Wenger had joined Arsenal in 1996. Arsenal were in a mess then their manager George Graham was sacked for pocketing transfer money, Paul Merson was in rehab for gambling, drugs and drinking problems. That was not all Arsenal lost 17 straight matches, and ended 12th on the table below Queen Park Rangers and eleven points behind their arch rival Tottenham Hotspurs. Dennis Bergkamp convinced Marc Overmars also to join Arsenal , things were never the same after that.

The transfer of Petr Cech from Chelsea to Arsenal is getting closer and closer, but the price has also gone up, from ten million pounds to fourteen million pounds. And it is believed that Petr Cech will be the number one goalkeeper at Arsenal in the new season.. This has made the Colombian goalkeeper David Ospina nervous and he will very well be sold as he wants the number one place as well, he might join a Turkish club. Jose Mourinho had no say in the departure of Petr Cech the final say was left to the Russian owner of Chelsea Roman Abrahimovic, and he has decided to sign and let Petr Cech leave as a reward for his ten years of loyal service. The deal will be done when Robert Green joins Chelsea. Now Fenerbanche are willing to pay 3.5 million pounds to buy him out from Arsenal, and also give him a yearly salary of 1.5 million pounds.
Real Madrid could be easily forced to sell their French striker Karim Benzema to Arsenal. Now Real Madrid have finished all their share of the money allotted to them to buy players. Now they are very keen to buy the Argentinean Sergio Aguero, the son in law of the famous Argentinean footballer Diego Maradona. But the problem here is that Sergio Aguero says he is very happy at Manchester City, and is not at all to move to Spain, in fact he was there in Spain with Atletico Madrid, before he moved to Manchester City. But Real Madrid always get their man in the end . Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Luis Figo are examples.
Real Madrid have now decided that they will have to speed up their purchase of the Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea, from Manchester United. The reason being their second choice goalkeeper the Cost Rican goalkeeper has suffered a Achilles tandon injury, and that will keep him out of playing football, for well over a month.
Liverpool want to sign Adriano, who is thirty years old from Barcelona. Now he is not getting many starting time now a days so he wants to move on. Liverpool have shown big interest in him, but the problem is that he wants champion league games as well, and that is something Liverpool can not give him that now. But the big problem for this transfer will be the transfer ban put on Barcelona till 1/1/2016 by F.I.F.A.
Manchester United when discussing the sale of David De Gea to the Spanish giants Real Madrid. The English club tried to show their keen interest in the French defender Raphael Varana, as say player plus player and cash. But Real Madrid made it crystal clear that Raphael Varana was not at all for sale , and could not be linked up in the David De Gea deal after all.
It is reported in THE METRO that the Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal is up for sale by Juventus, but the selling price is very high it is 28.5 million pounds. The Spanish giants Real Madrid were also in the race to buy Arturo Vidal from Juventus. But Real Madrid have now completely backed out, the reason being Arturo Vidal during the Copa America , which is being held in Chile. Arturo Vidal while returning drunk in his red Ferrari, costing 250,000 pounds, he was under the influence of alcohol . But I doubt if Arsene Wenger will show any interest to buy him now.
It is ridiculous on the part of the Chilean football coach Jorge Sampoli to say that Arturo Vidal will not be withdrawn from the Chile team after he smashed his red Ferrari costing 250,000 pounds, under the influence of alcohol . He is lucky not to break his leg or get a serious injury, . Arturo Vidal is not a God mr Jorge Sampoli he should be severely punished and even loose his place in the team for this Copa America, Sampoli must have a spine . I doubt managers of clubs like Juventus, Barcelona , Real Madrid would not tolerate ths. I remember Rivaldo had a fight with Louis Van Gaal over weather he would play on the left or on the right, and he had to watch two matches from the stand. So the Chile football players and board are thrash. Now Arturo Vidal will have to report to the Italian police every week, and he has now lost his driving licence.

Manchester City are very keen to increase their home grown players, so they were keen on Raheem Sterling and increased their offer from thirty million pounds to forty million pounds you take it or you leave it, but Livepool stood for their fifty million pounds price, a bit to much I must say. Now Manchester City are targeting the next English home grown player Jack Wilshere from Arsenal for thirty million pounds. But you can be very sure Jack Wilshere has no desire to leave Arsenal. He has said he will leave Arsenal only if Arsene Wenger tells him to leave Arsenal, and that is not going to happen soon either. And to make matters worse their two home grown players have left Manchester City on a free transfer , James Milner has joined Liverpool and Micah Richards has joined Aston Villa.
Carlos Tevez the Argentinean striker has told his club Juventus , that he wants to go back to Argentina and play for hs childhood club Boco Juniors, it appears that he is homesick here. But we must remember that Carlos Tevez has never been loyal to a single club in all his football carer he plays at a club for three or at the most for four years. Now Juventus ar looking at this seriously they have already signed Paouola Dybala from Palermo , and are in deep talks to sign the Croatian striker Mario Manduchick from Atletico Madrid in Spain.
Manchester City made a final offer to Liverpool for their winger Raheem Sterling, it was take it or leave , the amount they offered Liverpool for the last time was forty million pounds. But Liverpool stood for their fifty million pounds , which they were asking right from the very start. It now looks very unlikely Manchester City will come back to Liverpool with a better offer, they will look elsewhere.
The Attorney General of Switzerland in Bern said that the F.I.F.A problem is a very complicated thing and would take years to clear out. F.I.F.A is now accused of fifty three cases of money laundering you see, and each charge. will be important case. So both the 2018 and the 2022 world cups will be investigated thoroughly, and it will take a lot of years to complete. The Attorney General has said he does not care for the schedules of F.I.F.A.
Arturo Vidal the Chilean footballer who plays his club football with Juventus Or THE OLD LADY OF TURIN , as the club is called. Arturo Vidal crashed his red Ferrari car late in the night, but after being taken to hospital he and his wife were sent of after being treated for minor injuries. The police said that there was no doubt tat Arturo Vidal was driving the car after drinking , you see he was returning from a Casino late in the night. Now the point is whether there were any liquor bottles in the car, as in one picture Arturo Vidal is lifting the dicky as if showing it to the police. Now what I can not understand here is that a tournament is on , called TTHE COPA AMERICA for American countries, and Arturo Vidal is the top scorer so far. How can a manager of Chile give permission to players to drink. I doubt if he would have had drank liquor i he was playing in Europe with Juventus in the Champion league or at a world cup. Arturo Vidal should be ashamed of himself, and they both manager and Arturo Vidal should be sacked and fined heavily. Arturo Vidal could very well escape going to jail, as this being his very first offence.
Guam a small country with a population of 165,000 people And India that has a population of 1.25 Billion. Guam rank 174 in the F.I.F.A table, India are far higher up. But the country Guam that lost 16-0 and 19-0 in their 2006 world cup qualifier defeated India with a score of 2-1.

Chelsea are keen to sign the 6.6 tall goalkeeper from Stoke City for eight million pounds. But he wants to know exactly how many games he will be getting under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea. Now the departure of Petr Cech has hit the rocks, and he will not be going to Arsenal for sure.
Jose Mourinho is asking far to much as he now wants Arsenal Alex oxalde Chamberlain as part of the transfer for Petr Cech , mind you Petr Cech is already thirty three years old , his best years are honestly past him, but as a goalkeeper he very well could play for another four years. So it looks like this could all collapse. But Petr Cech would be a free agent next year after all.
The record for the most goals ever scored in a football match was in the year 2002, in the Madagascar cup match. It was played between A.S Adema verses Stade Olympique L Emryne. In that match sadly the players of Stade Olympique Emmryne scored a lot of own goals as a protest the total was 149 goals .to zero. This is the record today for most goals ever scored in a single match.
In the Estonaia cup played in the capital Tallinin. F.C. Intornet scored a total of thirty six goals against Virstu Jalgpalllbi who scored zero goals. But it was 13-0 at half time. And ended at 36-0. But we must remember that the city where the club Virstu Jalgpallkbi come from have a total population of 500 people only. And there were only eighty three spectators for the match. By the way this is not the world record for most goals.
We are often wondering why the Petr Cech transfer to Arsenal for either ten or eleven million pounds is taking so very long. Jose Mourinho wants to get a new goalkeeper , before he releases Petr Cech. Both Samir Begovic and Robert Green are shortlisted. But Tottenham Hotspurs are also keen on Samir Begovic, in case they loose Hugo Loris to Manchester United.
The Brazilian Sandro is on a holiday in Brazil and is not deported according to his relegated club Queen Park Rangers. It appears his work permit was well and truly over, and he played seventeen matches last season before it was realized that his work permitted had expired some time earlier. Now Queen Park Rangers have lost their licence to sign E.U. footballers, but the club says they are working closely with the law to solve it. The problem is all footballers do not read and write English. He joined Queen Park Rangers from Tottenham Hotspurs for ten million pounds, but he failed to get a new work permit when he joined Queen Park Rangers. He was pulled out of the last three matches once they were told he had no work permit.
Arsenal have agreed in principal on the sale of the German striker Lukas Podloski. He was not getting any starting last season this lead him to move to Italy with Inter Milan, which sadly did not work out. But just remember nothing is done on paper yet. He will join for 2.2 million a year and the transfer fee will be 1.4 million pounds
The former executive Chuck Blazer of F.I.F.A went underground in the year 2011. He is guilty of ten charges which could easily get him a very long term in jail it would be a minimum of seventy long years, after all he is seventy years old. The charges are for bribery, money laundering and fraud. The judge asked him to admit the guilt for ten charges which he is willing to do now. Such crooked rats need the seventy years in jail and the keys should be thrown in the sea . Chuck Blazer who has cancer, worked in the sly with the F.B.I , providing information of F.I.F.A meetings by having phones tapped.
It is indeed strange that top footballers from around Europe have failed very badly as managers. 1) Alan Shearer. 2) Diego Maradona. 3) Lothar Mathaeus.. 4) Rudd Gullit. 5) Hitro Stoichkov. 6) Marco Van Basten. 6) Tony Adams. 7) Roy Keane. 8) Paul Gascigne. 9) Walter Zenga. 10)Philippo Inzaghi. While some average footballers became good managers. 1)Sir Alex Ferguson 2) Arsene Wenger. 3) David Moyes. 4) Rafael Benitez.

neymar has been told by the president of Barcelona that he will get a better contract at Barcelona,. It will keep him at Barcelona till the year 2020. And it will make him the second highest paid footballer at Barcelona after you guessed it Lionel Messi. Yes but there is a hitch in all this, it will only come into force and the contract papers signed after the elections at Barcelona, which are due soon, and it has to be won by the former president. Neymar will get a salary of 8.5 million pounds that would make him highest paid with Andres Iniesta. Lionel Messi will still be the highest paid footballer at Barcelona.
The french giants P.S.G. a moneyed club no doubt now want Petr Cech from Chelsea. P.S.G are making a juicy offer to Petr Cech very tempting indeed. They are offering a thirty nine million package. That will work out as a 150,000 as a weekly salary. But the big problem is Petr Cech has lived for the past ten years in London and his family do not want to make a move to a new city and a new country. So it looks more likely Arsenal will be his new club.
Manchester United have very clearly told Real Madrid the bidding for david De Gea will start at thirty five million pounds . Real Madrid wanted to start their bidding at thirteen million pounds far to low I must say , when it is a good goalkeeper and between two giant football clubs . Now let us see if Real Madrid look elsewhere.
In the day I put up a post of Arsenal wanted to spend eigteen million pounds for Lars bender from Bayern Leverkusen. Now his twin brother Sven Bender . But now both the English clubs Tottenham Hotspurs and Southampton are keen on him as well. But after Jurgen Klopp left Borussia Dortmund , they will have to wait till the new manager takes over and agrees for the sale and price. Funny how these twins careers go.
Come on let us be very honest here Wayne Rooney has scored 48 goals, Gary Lineker has scored 48 goals and Sir Bobby Charlton has scored 49 goals. But what we must remember here that Wayne Rooney has scored goals against counties that did not exit at the time of Sir Bobby Charlton and Gary Lineker playing days. The Countries. 1 Estonia. 2) Croatia. 3 Belarus. 4) Kazkhstan . So has Wayne Rooney had a easy time to score goals. In fact twenty of his goals came against these countries.
Paul Pogba has very clearly said that he wants to join Barcelona. And that means even if he has to wait till 1/12016 for the ban on Barcelona to be lifted. After all tell me who in his right mind does not want to play for Barcelona. But things could be really scary at Barcelona with Paul Pogba, Lionel Messi , Luis Suarez anfd Ivan Rakitic and Andres Iniesta there . Just think for a moment will you.
Manchester United getting into next years champion league is not a sure thing at all. They have to play their play off matches in August, once the new season does open in August. But they have a very , very tricky group which contain some difficult clubs . The clubs they face are Lazio, C.S.K. Moscow, Monaco and sporting Lisbon.. Mind you Arsenal were masters in play offs they kept winning and reaching each champion league.
Oh Oh now Jackson Martinez is not yet sure of which club he wants to join after a;ll,, is it A.C.Milan or Arsenal. One thing is for sure here A.C. Milan came tenth on the table in Italy , so they have no Champion League or even for that matter no Europa League cup either. This might have played a big part in him pondering over his move from F.C.Porto. But here one thing is certain Arsenal are in the champion league for the seventeenth year in a row. He says he will take a few more days to decide, after all there is over a moth left to sign up at a new club.
The manager of Juventus also called THE OLD LADY OF TURIN. Has now admitted that he is absolutely helpless with the departure of Paul Pogba, Carlos Tevez and Alvaro Morata. But they costing a great deal totally , for example the price of Paul Pogba has reached eighty million pounds. Now the talk of Paul Pogba going back to Manchester United is rubbish, as Sir Alex Ferguson had treated him very badly when he was at Manchester United, he was sold free to Juventus. Not many clubs can afford him and his wages as well. Carlos Tevez is looking of going back and joining his childhood club Boco Juniors, but the Spanish club Atletico Madrid also want him. Alvaro Morata is wanted by his childhood club Real Madrid, he was sold to Juventus , when Arsenal came for him. Now the story going around is that Real Madrid will sell their French striker Karim Benzema to generate funds to pay the buy out clause for Allvaro Morata.
Wayne Rooney has now scored forty eight goals for England. He is now equal with Gary Linekar who also has scored forty eight goals for England. But he still has to score one more goal to equal the record set by Sir Bobby Charlton with forty nine goals for England.
Sunday, June 14, 2015
Atletico Madrid have told Manchester United that they must pay twenty five million pounds for their goalkeeper Jan Oblk. Jan Oblak is a Slovenian goalkeeper.. Manchester United were keen to sign the Dutch goalkeeper from Ajax Jan Ciellesen. Who played under Louis Van Gaal at the 2014 world cup. But Ajax have made it very clear that they are not at all willing to sell their goalkeeper to anyone, so why do Manchester United show interest at Ajax surprises me.
Arsenal have now revived their interest in the German midfielder from Bayern Leverkusen, he can play both as a midfielder and also as a defender he is Lars Bender. But the best thing about him is that he will be costing Arsenal a total of eighteen million pounds. And the French midfielder Arsenal wanted Morgan Scheilderin is be priced at twenty five million pounds. He is a target for both Manchester United as well as Manchester City. He is also a injury prone player at Southampton. So on the whole Lars Bender will be a good buy for Arsenal.
Jose Mourinho the present Chelsea manager is on the verge of signing a new deal at Chelsea. It will be a four year deal only and it is till the year 2019. It will totally be valued as thirty million pounds for those four years. And it will now work out to seven and a half million pounds yearly, 7.5 million pounds yearly.
England have gone a entire season being undefeated in their international matches.. The last time they went a whole year undefeated was in the year 1990/1991. That year they were under the famous manager the late Sir Bobby Robson.
Poland were playing Georgia , for a place in the Euro 2016. The score was just 1-0 for eighty nine minutes. Then there was a dull game till late in the match . He scored his first goal in the eighty ninth minute and by the time the whistle blew he scored his hat trick , it was also the fastest hat trick in the history of Polish football.
It is very much possible that the Italian striker Mario Bolotelli could be on his way from Liverpool to back home in Italy. The only club that has come forward for him is the Italian club Sampdoria . Even though it is a loan, there is a big question on who will be willing to pay his wages , as it is a huge 110,000 pounds a week. Now after a compromise it looks like the Italian club will be willing to pay a larger portion of his wages. Any way the Liverpool fans will be delighted to see the back of him. But it is quite possible that he may do well at the Italian club. For example Gervinho was a flop for Arsenal , but he did well for A.S.Roma and Cameroon.
Now the sale of the Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is becoming far to complicated for my liking. Now it appears that P.S.G are also keen on him, and have made matters hard to settle. And it is getting crowded there, now Manchester United are going to get into the picture as well, if they do not sign the French goalkeeper Hugo Loris from Tottenham Hotspurs. But the chairman of Tottenham Hotspurs David Levy has already made it clear that neither Harry Kane nor Hugo LOris are for sale at any price.
The French midfielder Paul Pogba , who plays his club football with Juventus in Italy , is getting costlier by the day. He will now cost Manchester City eighty million pounds. His weekly salary is 250,000 pounds , and in a five year contract it works to sixty five million pounds. And there is a ten million pounds signing charges to.

The agent of the Juventus midfielder has admitted the club has talked with his player of leaving Juventus. The midfielder Claudio Marchisco who always felt he was not getting enough of praise at Juventus it was going all to Arturo Vidal, now that Sami Khedira has joined Juventus things were getting more and more difficult for him, so he is ready for a move to Arsenal. So now let us see if the move really does work out for all parties concerned.
Manchester United wanted to bid for Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspurs for just forty million pounds. But honestly it is far to little . But the Chairman of Tottenham Hotspurs David Levy has very clearly said both Harry Kane and Hugo Loris are not for sale at any price. But at the same time Hugo Loris has said he wants to play in the champion league.
There was a swastika on the grass before the Euro 2016 qualifier between Italy and Croatia. The former Croatian footballer Davor Sukar was angry over it. And the Croatian football board said they were sorry about it, as it was due to some chemical reaction on the grass they said. Already this match is played under closed doors. Croatia were punished over failing to control their crowds.
Even though David De Gea has given a transfer request , Manchester United will only let the Spaniard go if they get another keeper . This is quite sensible you see. But the goalkeeper Manchester United want is the Slovenian goalkeeper Jan Oblak who is the goalkeeper at the Spanish club Atletico Madrid, and Diego Dimone will not let him go easily either. So buying a player is not that easy you see, another problem is getting a work permit inEngland.
Well well A.C.Milan are facing hard times, they even sold their team bus sometime back. But now a Thai buisnessman has bought forty eight percent of the A.C.Milan shares so money is coming in.They have almost got the Colombian striker Jackson Martinez from F.C.Porto. Now Sylvio Berscoloni is wanting a few strikers to add. By the way was he not serving a jail term in Italy.
Jose Mourinho wants to buy another defender from Atletico Madrid, and he is their center back Diego Godin, he is also the captain of the Uruguay team. He is a very good defender and has scored goals for Atletico Madrid in the final he scored a header to clinch the club. But I would very much like to tell the Chelsea fans not to get to excited about buying Diego Godin. For the simple reason being Diego Godin has said very clearly recently that he has no desire to leave Spain orthe Madrid club he plays for anytime soon.
Arsenal are now keen to spend fifteen million pounds for the striker Edin Dzeko from Manchester City. Originally there was talk of Arsenal were willing to buy the Colombian striker Jackson Martinez from F.C.Porto , by paying his buy out clause. But it now appears that A.C.Milan are willing to pay thirty five million Euros for him. But mind you A.C.Milan are not even in the champion league next year , and they stand tenth on the table in Italy, Martin Jackson will now go backwards in his career.

In the ladies world cup played in Canada , Switzerland won their match with a ten goal margin. Switzerland defeated Ecuador with a margin of ten goals to one goal. The ladies Swizz team had two pairs of players scoring a hat trick as well, and were also gifted by a own goal as well.
It is true here that the Napoli board have lost their marbles where Gonzalo Higuain is considered. Now Napoli want a unthinkable sum frm Arsenal for this Argentinean striker Gonzalo Higuain, mind you he is no Lionel Messi here to ask for such a price. Asking Arsenal to Pay 72.4 million pounds for Gonzalo Higuain, is just plain madness as Arsenal will never pay such money for a single player. Chelsea and Manchester City may pay such money for him, but certainly not Arsenal. By the way Arsenal are in the Champion League next year Napoli are not in the Champion League next year.
According to THE METRO Sergio Ramos is having trouble with a new contract at Real Madrid. Even though he wants a new contract at Real Madrid, the Spanish giants are not at all willing to increase his weekly salary, and so the talks have all stalled now. The big vulture Manchester United is flying above Real Madrid , all ready to swoop and get him if all talks fail for good.
Frank Lampard who played his football mainly with Chelsea and had started his club football with West Ham United, and ended it in England with a loan spell with Manchester City. He had played 127 times for England. He has now been honored with the title of THE O.B.E. It will be given on the Queens Birthday list. By the way frank Lampard is the cousin of Jamie Redknap and Harry Redknap happens to be his uncle.
Spanish giants F.C.Barcelona are now forced to call back Dennis Suarez who was on loan with the Spanish club Seville. Now you may ask why Barcelona were so very keen to get back Dennis Suarez from his loan spell at Seville. As Barcelona are facing a transfer and buying or selling ban , as F.i.F.A have punished F.C.Barcelona from buying and selling players till 1/1/2016. So aas Xavi Hernandez who was with Barcelona for 24 years has now gone and joined a Qatar club. Barcelona were forced to get Dennis Suarez back from Seville.
Chelsea are very keen to buy these two stars Radamel Falcao Garcia from Monaco for twenty five million pounds. They also want to buy the Brazilian striker Douglas Costa. But they will be selling these two players as well Juan Cuarado and Felioe Luiz. So let us see whether Chelsea will buy players first or sell these two players first. Both these Italian clubs are keen to buy these two players, they are A.C.Milan and A.S.Roma.
The English F.A have now charged Arsenal in breaching the transfer rules in buying Calum Chambers from Southampton for sixteen million pounds. He has now been a regular at Arsenal , till he suffered injuries. Now Arsenal have upto the 26/6/2015 to settle the matter. The agent of the player Mr Alan Middleton will also be there at the F.A for the hearing. Arsenal say they acted in good faith in this transfer deal.
The Turkish club Buraspor have been thrown out of next years Europa League. The reason was that this Turkish club in the year 2012 had gone and breached the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES. After a warning and a ban that did not help one bit as the Turkish club Buraspor breached the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULE all over again. Now they will face longer time punishment as well.
When the French midfielder Abou Diaby joined Arsenal great things were expected of him, honestly he had potential. He could have been the new Patrick Vieira. He could have been like Yaya Toure. He could have even been the future Paul Pogba. But faith had other things for him sadly, he had a anckle fracture by Dan Smith Of Sunderland, it was horrible and he never was the same player ever , yes he also had knee and thigh problems as well. A case of a very bright future cut short. Reminds me of A.C.Milan and Marco Van Basten injury, it was after his injury F.I.F.A changed the rules of football,. After that any sliding tackle means a straight yellow card.
The Costa Rican striker Joel Campbell who played in the 2014 world cup, was about to be sold by Arsenal to the Spanish club Real Sociedad which is managed by David Moyes. But now that offer seems to be rejected . He has now been offered a club playing in the champion league next year. The club is the Turkish giants Fenerbanche, who have played for a few years in the champion league.

It now looks more and more likely that the Colombian striker Jackson Martinez could very well join Arsenal. The Italian club A.C.Milan were also interested in him , but that deal has now collapsed all together, and that leaves only one big club , according to his manager he will then be signing for this club in a matter of days and not weeks. But then you must consider Arsenal one big club.
From the year 1995 till today the English football clubs have gone and sacked a total of two hundred and fifteen managers. Some clubs use the higher and sack system, if the manager fails to win a trophy he is sacked straight away. The one who has stayed the longest time is Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, he joined in 1996. Even when he failed to win a trophy for nine years, Arsenal did not sack him.
It is now told that both Lionel Messi and his father Jorge Messi could face charges for evading tax for upto three million pounds. But the lawyers plea was thrown out of the court recently .So it looks like he will face the court this year. But what we must remember here when the tax department brought it up, Lionel Messi was twenty years old then . And his father Jorge appointed a person to advice them on the law and so on. It looks like the person who was appointed failed to give them the proper advise here. Now the point is could this case be settled outside the court.? Mind you Spain come heavily on their spors person where tax is concerned, Rafael Nadal and Ikker Casillas had similar proplems with the tax authority.
The French striker Loic Remy , once dubbed the new Henry. Is now in talks with West Ham United of leaving Chelsea and joining West Ham United. There is no doubt about it he is a proven goal scorer at club level any way. But the talks are in a early stage,the main reason could be that Radamel Falcao Garcia could well be joining Chelsea from Monaco. Even though he was a super flop at Manchester United last season.
When Arsenal won the record 12th time in 2015. Now Arsene Wenger has won the F.A cup six times, not many managers can boast of winning the F.A CUP , the oldest cup in England six times. Jose Mourinho says oh the F.A CUP is a small cup not worth anything at all. But he should know good managers all want to win silverware in the season so all cups are equally important for them.
During the Ladies world cup, played in Canada. In the match between Brazil and South Korea saw a few records fall on the way. Brazil defeated South Korea with a 2-0 score. Martha the Brazilian striker in the ladies team scored her goal number fifteen with the help of a penalty, she has now broken the previous record of Bridget Prinz , who scored fourteen goals. By the way Martha is a five time Ladies Footballer of the year. Mind you Lionel Messi has won the footballer of the year for four times only. The first goal for Brazil was scored by Formiga , who netted the ball in her seventh world cup at the age of thirty seven years, another record tumbles down.

We always want to know the fastest goal , or the fastest hat trick was scored by who. This is of the fastest red card ever shown in the E.P.L. The fastest red card was shown to Steven Gerrard of Liverpool , for stamping the Spaniard Andres Herrera of Manchester United. Steven Gerrard got it in the thirty eighth second after he came o.

It is official now Arsenal football club are worth twice the amount Tottenham Hotspurs have. In figures released recently Arsenal come seventh on the table after Manchester United, Bayern Munich , Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City Chelsea. Arsenal , Tottenham Hotspurs stand tenth on the table. Arsenal have a total of 703 million Dollars or 503 Million Pounds. Tottenham Hotspurs have 360 Million Dollars. Or 248 Million Pounds. Or in other words Arsenal are worth two Tottenham Hotspurs.
It looks more and more likely that Real Madrid will be having a nw pair of goalkeepers next season. They are in talks of getting David De Gea from Manchester United, and the agent will be meeting with Real Madrid to iron out things. It looks more and more likely that Iker Casillas will be moving on , Neylor Navas also being sold. So Real Madrid are looking at the Espanyol goalkeeper he is Kiko Casilla.
Poor man Raphael Benitez has just signed up for Real Madrid on a three year contract, the season has not even started the buying and selling of players has not even begun in ernest, but the pressure is fully on him already, with out the whistle even being blown. Zinedine Zidane has clearly told Raphael Benitez that he must win trophies and they must be won fast, it is the Spanish league cup he was talking about, and not the Copa Del Rey here. Real Madrid have not won the Spanish title for the last seven years,something Real Madrids fans are not willing to stomach. If they slip next year they will sack him straight away for sure. Now Rafael Benitez has won the title with Valencia before he joined Liverpool, and he won the champion league in 2005 over A.C.Milan. But Atletico Madrid and Barcelona are strong.
Liverpool have now gone and released their right back Glen Johnson. Glen Johnson joined Liverpool from Portsmouth for 17.5 million pounds, and was getting a weekly salary of a hundred thousand pounds. But it is rumored that Glen Johnson will be joining a Italian club like Ashley Cole did., he joined A.S.Roma. It is reported that Liverpool will sign the right back Martin Montoya from Barcelona. Montoya will soon decide on his future in a few days you see. Now that Dani Alves has signed for two years at Barcelona, and to make matters worse Barcelona have signed the right back Aleix Vidal from the Spanish club Seville . But Aleix Vidal can only play for Barcelona from january 2016, once the ban on Barcelona is lifted from buying and selling a player.
The highly talented Swedish striker , who does not stay at a club for more then three years at the most, no matter how many trophies he has won at the club. The latest club was P.S.G who will be selling him soon. But let us see his wages of ninety million pounds he got at Europe. 1) Ajax. 2001/2004. 250,000 pounds. 2)Juventus. 2004/2006. 1.2 million pounds. 3)Inter Milan. 2006/2009. 8.2. Million/ 4)Barcelona 2007/2011. 9.6. Million pounds. 5)A.C. Milan. 2011/2012. 8 million pounds. P.s.g. 2012 tILL tODAY.12 MILLION POUNDS. Please note these are per anum only . The total is ninety million pounds.
A total of eighteen players were selected by a board . And there were ten players from Barcelona. Five from Juventus . And one from Chelsea. 1) Goalkeepers Gianlughi Buffon and Marc Andres terStegen. 2) Defenders. Branislav Ivonovic,Javier Mascherano Gerrard Pique, Jordi Alba. Giorgio Chielleni. 3) Midfielders. Ivan Rakitic, Andres IIniesta, Sergio Busquets, Andres Pirlo, Claudio Marchiso and Toni Kroos. Lionel Messi. Luis Suarez, Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata. And there were two from Real Madrid as well.
Arsenal have now released their French midfielder Abou Diaby, after a period of nine years. In those nine years he played only one hundred and twenty six matches for Arsenal. He was a very talented player no doubt he was even once compare to Patrick Vieira by Arsene Wenger. He was getting a weekly salary of eighty thousand pounds. And he suffered from a total of forty injuries in that time. Those injuries sadly ruined his bright career. Arsenal have told Abou Diaby even though he is a free agent , he can still use the Arsenal grounds till he finds a new club.

The Barcelona manager Luis Enrique has now gone and signed a new contract at Barcelona, it will be for one more year. And that will mean he w, Luis Enrique will remain as the manager of Barcelona till the year 2017. There was a lot of speculation that Luis Enrique would resign as manager of Barcelona after the end of the season. The big doubt was who would win the election causing him to leave Barcelona.
There is going to be a new manager at West Ham Unite, Upton Park. He is their former player Slaven Bilic . But who is he may not be known to many fans at Upton Park. He had played for West Ham United as a player as well. Till recently he was the manager of the Turkish club Besiktas. He was the manager of Croatia in the 1998 world cup in France. The Croatian team won the bronze medal then, and it came as a big surprise to many, as Croatia were then playing in their first world cup , Davor Sucker even won the Golden Boot that year, with six goals . But many may not know is the Croatia fans never ever thought in their wildest dream that Croatia would progress so far in the 1998 world cup. FAns ran out of money and were sleeping in parks and bus stops, but the French gave them blankets and food daily . This is the beauty of football, all became one family. Slaven Bilic has been given a three year contract at West Ham United.
Michael Platini and U.E.F.A have told the Belgian defender that he will have to return the Champion League medal he won on the 6/6/2015 in Berlin. U.E.F.A are very clear they told him as he did not play a single minute of the champion league matches this year. So legally speaking he has no right what so ever to collect it. Earlier on Arsenal lost four million Euros as the sale deed of Thomas Vermaelen said that Barcelona would have to pay Arsenal if Barcelona did win the champion league, but the same rule stood there and as he did not play in the champion league final , Barcelona had no need to pay Arsenal any money. But he got his medal as U.E.F.A had forty gold and forty silver medals ready that day.
The German midfielder Sami Khedira is going to join Juventus on 1/72015 from Real Madrid on a free transfer. He will now join THE OLD LADY OF TURIN on a four year deal. Now Juventus will be seeing some players leaving and some new ones joining as well.
That rat Jack Warner the former vice president of F.I.F.A , has now been acused of swolowing seven hunrded and fifty thousand pounds that was donated by F.I.F.A to the Earthquake relief fund in Hati after the 2010 earthquake. Jack Warner shamelessly says people can make accusation , so what about it I can not stop them can I/.
The French striker Karim Benzema m who plays his club football with Real Madrid in spain. And now Real Madrid has said that they are willing to sell Karim Benzema to generate funds to buy back Alvaro Morato, as they sold him to Juventus last year, but Real Madrid have a buy out clause in his contract that gives Real Madrid first right to buy him back from Juventus. It is similar to what Cesc Fabregas had at Barcelona from Arsenal. The agent of Karim Benzema says he will not be joining Manchester United.
Even though Barcelona won the champion league verses Juventus. It may come as a surprise that Juventus made more money. As the money is divided in a way , for example Juventus won the Italian league four years in a row, but last year Barcelona came second to Atletico Madrid. So Barcelona lost money here. Now there were few Italian clubs in this years champion league and Spain had four clubs all to the quarter finals t least so the money was divided among the four Spanish clubs leaving Barcelona with less money compared to Juventus. This year A.C.Milan and A.C.Milan were not there,neither will they be there next year. It is indeed sad that Barcelona got less money , even after winning the champion league this year.
There was every possibility that Dani Alves would leave Barcelona as a free agent this monthh. And both the English clubs Liverpool and Manchester United were very keen to get him as a free agent. But sadly Dani Alves dashed all their hopes. This all came from the blue , Barcelona even signed a young right back Aleix Vidal from Seville,, for a fee of thirteen million pounds and that could easily reach sixteen million pounds. But the new contract was signed, as Aleix Vidal can not play for Barcelona till January 2016 , when F.I.F.A lift their ban.
The German ladies team really meant to score goals right from the start . The Germans scored a huge total of ten goals against THE IVORY COAST. And two of them even scored a Hat trick each. The total would have been more had it not been for the efforts of their goalkeeper.

Barcelona appointed Luis Enrique as their manager after having a terrible year earlier. Luis Enrique joined Barcelona from Real Madrid during his career, and not like Luis Figo or Michael Ladrup who left Barcelona for Real Madrid. The season started badly with Real Madrid winning twenty two matches in all in a row. Barcelona had inside problems the sporting director Andoni Zubizeratta resigned followed by Carles Puyol as well. Barcelona then lost to Real Sociedad, things were at the lowest at Barcelona. There were even talks of Lionel Messi not seeing eyeball to eyeball with Luis Enrique, and the gossip was that Lionel Messi wanted to leave Barcelona. But things changed in January Real Madrid started loosing matches one again. And this year Barcelona won the treble for the second time in their illustrious carrers. Another point which the Barcelona players did not agree with Luis Enrique was his rotation method. But in the end Barcelona won the La Liga with a four point margin. And also won the Champion League with a 3-1 score against Juventus. So what were the crisis at Barcelona may I know?
As the transfer window opened there is a bright chance that Arsenal would sign one of these three proven goal scoring strikers. They are as follows. 1) Gonzalo Higuain. Argentina. 2) Jackson Martinez . Colombia. 3) Karim Benzema. France.
It is reported in Rome that the Italian club A.S.Roma are also keen to buy the Portuguese footballer from Manchester United., the price is ten million pounds for the winger. But the sticking point could very well be his weekly wages, as he had signed a new contract at Manchester United recently, and now his weekly wages are huge they are 100,000, or one hundred thousand pounds a week, far to ,much for the Italian club. In fact the Milan club Inter Milan also wanted to buy him and now there is no progress on this , it could have been his 100,000 pounds a week causing the problem. Or then Manchester United must agree to pay part of the fees.
In the 2015 Champion League final played in Berlin , between Barcelona and Juventus, and which Barcelona won 3-1. But all fans were to see if Lionel Messi scored a goal in the third final in a row. But sadly it was noyt to be so, yes Liomnel Messi did have a strike at goal, but it was stopped very well by Gianlughi Buffon, only for the ball to bounce for Luis Suarez to score a goal. But the record was to be for Andres Iniesta who assisted for the third final for a goal to be scored. This clearly shows Barcelona have a far better level of football compared t England , Italy and France. All the ten Barcelona were involved in the first goal scored by Ivan Rakitic in the forth minute, it was beutiful to see from a neutral eye.
Liverpool last won the Champion League in 2005. But there are six players to win the champion league after leaving Liverpool.1 1) Fernando Torres and Raul Mereles, with Chelsea in the year 2012. 2)Xavi Alonso and Alvaro Arbeloa with Real Madrid in 2014. 3) Luis Suarez and Javier Mascherano. Barcelona 2015.. Mind you this is after 2009 only.
Barcelona are famous for their Tika taka style similar to Arsenal. Another point to note is the Barcelona backs are known to cause a great deal of trouble, simply as they make so many glorious touches. 1) Lionel Messi made 1211 touches in the final. 2) Dani Alves made a total of 1133 touches in the champion league 3( Jordi Alba 1067 touches in the champion league. 4) The Arsenal left back Nacho Monreal had accurate passing which read 96.88 percent accurate passes. This was the highest in this years champion league. Till Arsenal lost to Monaco on the away goal rule. 5) Gianlughi Buffon played 1170 minutes in the champion league.
It has now been just five days since the Spaniard Rafael Benitez replaced the Italian manager Carlo Anchelotti it Real Madrid. The disagreement was over the new striker Real Madrid want to get to get it back to the old glory days, you see Real Madrid have not won the Spanish title for seven long years, something the Real Madrid fans find unacceptable, four years was to much when Real Madrid failed to win it with Raul Gonzalvez. Now therow was over a new striker Florentino Perez wants to spend big money for Sergio Aguero, the son in law of Diego Maradona.. In fact Diego Maradona was angry at Real Madrid for not buying Sergio Aguero from Atletico Madrid. But Rafael Benitez wants to rebuy Alvaro Morato from Juventus, as Alvaro Morato was sold by Real Madrid to Juventus for seventeen million pounds. But there is a buy back clause of getting Alvaro Morato for 21 million pounds., it could reach twenty five million pounds next summer. So it will have to be seen which player will join Real Madrid, as both clubs will not sell Sergio Aguero or Alvaro Morato.

The Spanish pass master Xavi Hernandez has retired from Barcelona after spending twenty four years at the Spanish giants. In those twenty four years that he spent at Barcelona he has won twenty four awards , and that includes four champion league trophies not bad at all I must say.
The Barcelona coach Luis Enrique , had admitted that he had his doubts whether Luis Suarez would indeed settle down at Barcelona , from Liverpool and would he score goals for Barcelona. But Luis Suarez has taken time to settle at Barcelona , and the goals took time to come, but once it did they came flowing for Barcelona. He joined for seventy five million pounds, and one worry would the price be a like a millstone around his neck. We saw what the price did for Fernando Torres and Andy Carroll. But he partneed Lionel Messi and Neymar very well in scoring goals, the three scored 122 goals in all this season.
Kenny Sansom the former England and Arsenal defender who played 86 times for England, but he was neither booked or sent of either. But sadly drinking and gambling have taken its toll on him. He is on the streets now. He was paid 1200 pounds a week at Arsenal in 1988.
It has now been declared that F.I.F.A being corrupt through and through is now in another. major scandal. It is now come to light that actually it was Morroco who won the election to host the 2010 world cup and not South Africa. It is said Morroco won the choice of hosting the 2010 world cup by a margin of two votes. But Sepp Blatter gave it to South Africa , saying a African country had never held the world cup in its history . Money speaks volumes you see. I am sure that the F.B.I . will be after Blatter soon.
These two have won a record nine champion league cups between them, which should be a record of some sort. 1) Polo Maldini of A.c. Milan and Italy won five champion league cups during his glittering career at A.C.Milan. 2) Xavi Hernandez who played for Barcelona and Spain. has won four champion league Cups.
Barcelona have now gone and won the treble for the second time, the only club to do it. And what makes this even sweeter is that Barcelona were punished by F.I.F.A from buying or selling a player till 1/1/2016. It looks like they never missed a thing the South American strikers at Barcelona, Luis Suarez Lionel Messi and Neymar scored a record 122 goals for Barcelona between them.. I doubt whether Real Madrid or Chelsea could do it.
The Argentinean striker Carlos Tevez will soon be leaving the Italian champion juventus , THE OLD LADY OF TURIN, for a new challenge after Juventus lost the Champion League final to Barcelona.3-1. Actually he wanted to lave Juventus and join Boco Juniors in Argentina. But the Boco Junior fans behaved very badly during Liberators Cup verses River Plate, I do agree they are arch rivals like say Real Madrid and Barcelona., but you do not see the Spanish fans spraying pepper spray at each other. So that choice was dropped, it now appears Carlos Tevez will join Liverpool in the E.P.L.

Arsenal are not going to get their four million Euros from Barcelona for winning the champion league tis year. In the agreement made between Arsenal and Barcelona , during the sale of Thomas Vermealen, from Arsenal to Barcelona, there was a understanding that Barcelona would have to pay Arsenal four million Euros if Barcelona win the Champion League. But as Thomas Vermaelen has not played this season for Barcelona, the question of payment does not rise at all here.
Barcelona have won the Champion League match between Juventus played at the Berlin Olympic stadium. Barcelona scored a marvelous goal early in the match, it was scored by the Croatian Ivan Rakitic , it was a team effort with roughly eleven passes in all it was scored in the forth minute. But Alvaro Morrato equalized in the fifty fifth minute.. But then Luis Suarez score the goal , the ball was tapped by Giianlugi Buffon for Luis Suarez to score that goal in the sixty seventh minute. Juventus pressed hard to get a equalizer, and so to take the game to extra time. Neymar scored the third goal late into injury time it came in 90+7 minutes. Barcelona won their fifth champion league as well as the treble. The only club to win the treble for the second time. They become the eighth club to win a treble. But Juventus did keep Lionel Messi quiet for a while though. But Luis Enrique has now won the treble for Barcelona on his debut year as manager of Barcelona, nobody has done this as yet. But dark clouds hang over Nou Camp as Luis Enrique is not at all sure of his future. Xavi came in for Andres Iniesta with twenty minutes remaining , so he could lift the champion league as well. But sadly Gianlugi buffon and juventus loose their sixth champion league final, our hearts bleed for them as Andres Pirlo and Gianlugi Buffon may no longer be there in a champion league final. Now Barcelona have won their fifth champion league, equal with Liverpool and Bayern Munich who have also won five titls.
The Spanish Basque club Elchie are not only fine 132,000 pounds for not paying tax debt to the authority , but are also relegated for not paying taxes. Elche had finished thirteenth in the table on the last day in Spain. But Spain have very strict laws whee tax evading is concerned, we have seen it with Romario, Neymar and Lionel Messi all have been taken to court over tax dodging. The lucky club that will be promoted will be Eibar, this club was demoted last year.
Over the years there have been seven clubs to win the treble,saturday champion league could see the club number eight to win the treble. 1) Celtic. 1967. 2)Ajax 1972. 3) P.S.V. Eindhoven. 1988. 4)Manchester United . 1999. 5) Barcelona. 2009. 6) Inter Milan. 2010. 7) Bayern Munich. 2013.
The truth is the Champion League can be easily won or lost here. The French right back Patrice Evra will have a real tough time controlling the very speedy ,tricky and magician called Lionel Messi. Just ask Manuel Neuer or the four Spanish defenders of Atletico Bilbao, who played in the COPA DEL REY final. And yes Patrice Evra is to old for the job to keep Lionel Messi quiet.
Manchester United are desperate to get back to the glory days under Alex Ferguson. Now that Robin Van Persie will be joining Lazio in Italy, they want a proven striker. They are willing to pay Tottenham Hotspurs a huge sum of fifty million pounds for Harry Kane. Manchester United will not be stopping there they are also willing to give the club a free player as well. And who will it be , as if fifty million pounds was not enough , the players they are offering are also good. They are Luis Nani, Javier Hernandez and the youngster Adnan Januzaj. Now that Louis Van Gaal has been given one hundred and fifty million pounds this year to spend, and last year he spent a total of one hundred and fifty three million pounds., more on average players. Arsene Wenger would never blow the whole amount in one transfer window, he would spend some and keep the rest for a good footballer later on.
