The Dutch footballer has finally admitted that he had dived in the world cup match, in the group of sixteen. Well once a cheat always a cheat. He has said he went down far to easily. The mexican coach said he went down for the penalty also far to easily . He also said it was the referee from Portugal who won the game for Holland. But what I fail to understand is why players of high class have to cheat repeatedly like the following. 1) Diego Maradona. 2) Luis Figo. 3) Arjen Robben. 4) Cristiano Ronaldo. Each of these footballers are quite capable of winning a match single handed. Now that he has admitted that he dived , it will bound to make him loose many , many fans. Once a cheat always a cheat.
The Spanish giants Barcelona want to buy the troublsome , but highly talented striker. They are willing to get him out of England. They are willing to pay Liverpool fifty million pounds for him, and also give him a five year contract. His weekly salary will be a huge 160,000 pounds. But there will be a special clause written in the contract , and that is he should behave very well both and of the field. Barcelona are also willing to send the Chilean who was the star of the world cup 2014.For 30 million pounds, but Liverpool still want 80 million pounds for him. As England are angry with Luis Suarez for knocking them out of the world cup, he may not feel safe and happy lke before, fans said to deport Luis Suarez even. The best way to see that he does not bite anyone is to see that he wears a mask covering his mouth , like dogs and bears have.

The famous Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson , according to THE GUARDIAN refused to sign the Colombian footballler James Rodrigues, for a small amount of five million pounds. Instead he chose Bebe , for seven million pounds. A player Ferguson said he never saw playing at all. James Rodrigues has been the star of the 2014 world cup in Brazil, he is the top goal scorer to. After Manchester rejected James Rodrigues , he went to F.C.Porto and then to Monaco for 35 million pounds. Now it is the turn of the Spanish giants to come knocking at his door. James says he would prefer Real Madrid to Barcelona any day. The price is increasing by the day for him. But let me remind you all one thing these stars of a world cup or a EURO CUP can be big failures as well. Let us take the case of the Russian Andrei Arshavin, as he was the star of the EUROCup, Arsene Wenger got him for a then record at Arsenal for fifteen million pounds. Andrei Arshavin was a utter failure , he had a weekly salary of eighty thousand, 80,000 pounds. In the own words of Andrei Arshavin who said he was a average player and failed at Arsenal.

There was only one English fan an old lady to welcome the English players back. But at the same time big crowds of fans welcomed back the Japanese football team.

Now according to THE SUN , Liverpool have joined along with the Uruguay F.A. In filing a case on the banning and fining Luis Suarez. Now this is silly and stupid of a big club. Cameras clearly showed Luis Suarez biting the Italian defender. So F.I.F.A did their judgement, sadly they were to lenient on this canibal Luis Suarez. Liverpool have become a one man club now, and they depend heavily on him to score the goals. But the best thing for Liverpool would be to sell him, even if it was a distress sale, who wants him anyway? I wonder what Mr Henry is smoking now ?
There is no doubt here that Luis Suarez is a psciatric case , and needs councelling very badly. He must be treated first no matter how long it takes, before he is allowed to play. We must find out why he behaves like this and bites people on the pitch, after all it is not to be tolerated at all. The reason could be his childhood days that were hard, one of seven sibblings , in a poor family. So he must have bit them to get the food and toys first. He must have done it to children on the road as well, and now he does it on the football pitch as well. Here the long ban is not important his complete treatment is important.
luis Suarez would have served a total of 39 matches in all for biting players, during his time at Ajax, Liverpool and for the national team of Uruguay. In other words he has now missed a entire season of football, as the E.P.L has 38 , thirty eight matches. I must say it is quite extrordinary. Here F.I.F.A have found him guilty of biting, but his captain Diego LuggGiorgio Chellenni.ano says Luis Suarez did not bite Giorgio Chelleni. With so many cameras all around it is silly to say that he did not bite , and those were old tooth marks on the shoulder.
It is reported in THE METRO that Uruguay are now planning to boycott 3world cup 2014 in Brazil. This is all after their main striker and goal scorer was banned from this world cup for biting the Italian Giorgio Chelleni on the shoulder. Actually Uruguay were to play Colombia in he group of sixteen. What will happen now is yet to be seen, if Uruguay do finally boycott the world cup, will Colombia get a walk over or will Italy get to play in the place of Uruguay? If you ask me the truth is Uruguay and their coach Oscar tabarez are acting silly and childish. F.I.F.A could easily ban Uruguay from the next world cup.
There is no doubt here F.I.F.A are absolutely disgusting and a utter disgrace in thebiting incident of Luis Suatez 0n the Italian Giorgio Chelleni, the fesh tooth marks were there with plenty of cameras all around so no chance of him dodging the punishment. But when F.I.F.A anounced the punishment, it was clear they only wanted Luis Suarez to pay a huge fine of 100,00 Swiss Francs. He is also told not to be at any football stadium, he is expelled from the 2014 world cup as well. And baned for four months, that is from August to November. F.I.F.A have been to lenient on Luis Suarez, as he has now bit a footballer for the third time the punishment should have been a two year ban. But sadly F.I.F.A are spineless and have no teeth in them to dish out their punishment, you can be very sure he will be biting a player again very soon.Would F.I.F.A been so lenient if it was a black player, the answer is no the fine would be even bigger and he would have got two year ban. SHAME ON F.I.F.A All their big talk of Luis Suarez facing a very lengthy ban, is four months ban a lengthy ban for a third time biting a player?
As the English footballers got down at the airport , naturally looking glum. But sadly only one fan was waiting to welcome the English football team back from the world cup at Brazil. And she was a very old gray haired lady, just imagine that. yes it was a very different welcome that the English football team got in 1990, after the world cup in Italy, Sir Bobby Robson and his footballers reached the semi finals then, with players like David Platt, Paul Gascoigne, Peter Shilton and Stuart Pearce. Then the crowds were large in number to welcome them.

The world cup 2014 in Brazil is sure raining goals, nw all the 32 countries taking part in the world cup. This last happened at the 1998 world cup in France which France won. So a record is equalled.
This is absolutely shameful on the part of the captain of Uruguay Diego Luggano to support Luis Suarez openly , and to say that Luis Suarez did not bite Chelleni at all , and the tooth marks are old ones. Here Luggano must have his head examined, also his eyes. F.I.F.A are now proceeding with the Luis Suarez case , with their disiplenerry team, so now it will be tried under law 48,57, 77. Now everything will be used like caneras, videos, audios, and several witnesses will be called as well as players and the Mexican referee Marco Rodriguez, who even failed to show a yellow card to Luis Suarez. There is no doubt here his world cup future is very well and truly over.He has brought shame and disgrace to this world cup, and to the beutiful game of football. And as this is the third footballer he has bitten the punishment should be very harsh a straight five year ban from all matches.
A Swedish fan took a bet that Luis Suarez would definately bite a player in the 2014 world cup played in Brazil. He has won a total of 150 pounds, and he has shown it on twitter.
As the Spanish football came back to land at Madrid, the weather was dark and gloomy, just as the players were gloomy . Hee Spain were the reigning world cup champions but they were elimenated in the first round itself with just a single win.That was why some were gloomy, as they were at the end of their glittering careers. To make mattes worse for the Spanish team, the Madrid airport was struck by a bolt of lightning, and it hit the plane carrying the Spanish team as they landed. But luckily nothing happened to any one.
Here the former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler says sadly shamelessly Luis Suarez has dragged the proud and mighty Liverpool into the muck. It is a shame that such a talented footballer ,like Luis Suarez , a player who can single handedly win a football match on his own. Has to go about biting a player at the biggest stage of football THE WORLD CUP. In 2013 Luis Suarez bit the Chelsea player Branislav Ivonovic. And that time the Liverpool clu and manager supported him, but if the Liverpool fans and club support him they are being idiotic. There was also big talk that both the Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona were keen to buy him. But both these famous clubs will never allow such things , now they are least interested in Luis Suarez. Last time Luis Suarez got a ten match ban, he may now get a two or five year ban. Everthing goes round friends. Remember THE HAND OF LUIS SUAREZ in the 2010 world cup against Ghana wre he used his hand to prevent a ball from going into the Uruguay net.Now his world cup is over for sure. One thing is very clear here , as he says oh there is no need to make a big fuss about this bite, as it happens all the time.Then why do the others do it to, if it is legal according to F.I.F.A rules. Luis Suarez must be treated for mental illness for sure, after he comes out of the hospital the ban can come into force.

Luis Suarez the footballer from Uruguay has gone and bit the third person on the pitch.He did it when he was at Ajax, he did it when he played for Liverpool verses Chelsea. He bit Branislav Ivonovic in the hand, and he bit the Italian defender Giorgio Chelleni on the shoulder. This things should not be allowed and such players are bad role models for kids.Just giving a ten match ban will not do . he should get a five year ban from all football both club and country. The big question is will F.I.F.A have the courage to dare do this.The answer is No. It was indeed sad that the Mexican referee sided the Uruguay team, firstly showing Marchismo a red card when a yelow would do, n a match which was tenssley fought and both sides played dirty , such attacks would be there. But where the referee disgraced himseld and F.I.F.A as well , was when this mad dog Luis Suarez bit he Italian , he never even bothered to look him up, nor did he show Luis Suarez a card, such acts need a card. No matter how good Luis Suaerez is , he needs medical treatment urgently. And he is saying such things happen, SHAMELESS CANIBAL.
In the 2014 world cup match between Holland and Chile,Holland for the first time did not have player with the name Van in it. The only player with Van in it was Robin Van Persie and he was susspended for this perticular game . Holland have played in three world cup finals , even then there was a Van playing. The famous players having that Van in their name are Marco Van Basten, Edwin Van der Sar, Rafael Van D Vart, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Giovani Van Bronchurst. So the last time Holland played without a player having the name Van in it was back in 1996 , and a total of 221 games were played since then.

Algeria defeated South Korea with goal score of 4-2. Algeria have scored more goals then in their seven world cups they played. We must remember that Algeria are now on the brink of qualifying for the group of 16. Algeria are a great footballing country , they even knocked out West Germany in the 1982 world cup. They have also produced football stars and geniuses like Zinedine Zidane, Karim Benzema and Samir Nasri. Algeria are the first African country to score four goals in one world cup match.
Now there are are only three footballers two have scored a goal in the four world cups they have played. 1) Pele Brazil 1958,1962, 1966, 1970. 2) Uwe Seeler. West Germany. 1958, 1962, 1966, 1970. 3) Miraslav Klose. Germany. 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014.
Luis Suarez who scored two goals and is n his way out of Livepool and England. The reason he may leave Liverpool is that the people of England want him deported at all costs for knocking out England from the world cup. Footballers want to live in peace and play without fear of their families getting death threats all the time. Now both the the Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona, are ready to start a bidding war for him. and use the buy out clause to get him. Real Madrid are also willing to give big cash as well as a player, who is Alvaro Morata. Will we see a nre record for a player? Now who will Liverpool buy to replace Luis Suarez, the talk is the player is Radamel Falcao , who is not happy at Monaco. But Raamel Falcao has made it very clear call from Liverpool and Chelsea will fall on deaf years, as he only wants a move to Spain and Real Madrid. Real Madrid will offer Liverpool 30 million pounds and Alvaro Morata. While Barcelona are willing to pay 40 million pounds and Alexis Sanchez as well.

The German striker Miraslav Klose has now scored fifteen goals at the world cup. He has now equaled the record for the most goals to be scored by a single player. The record was held by the Brazilian Ronaldo with figteen goals. Miraslav Klose has every chance to break that record as Germany now move to the group of sixteen .
In the German national team there are a total of five players who have played over a hundred games for Germany. 1) Miraslov Klose he has now played 133 games for Germany. 2)Lukas Podloski has now played 116 games for Germany. 3)Philipp Lahm has now played 108 games for Germany. 4) Basitain Schweinsteiger has now played 103 games for Germany. 5) Per Mertesaccker has now played 100 games for Germany.
I just can not understand the French F.A.at all. During the 2010 world cup in South Africa. There was a very ugly and an unpardanuble revolt by the French footballers in South Africa. And yes it was Patrice Evra who was the leader. The French F,A should be completely ashamed of themselves, taking back the leader of the rshameful revolt, Patrice Evra , while other players like Nickolas Anelka got heavy fines and served long bans as well. The way France have taken Patrice Evra , and all is forgotten, it is impossible they should bring all the other French footballers who were sent to the wilderness for good.
The French striker Karim Benzema unfortunately failed to score a hat trick against Switzerland. France won the match 5-2. Karim Benzema kicked the ball, and it was the last touch of the ball in the match, yes the ball did go into the net, but unfortunately for Karim Benzema , the whistle did indeed blow while the ball was on its way into the net. The goal did not stand and the match endd 5-2. So Thomas Mueller has now scored the only that trick in the 2014 world cup, number forty nine .
Spain lost the world cup because of a few reasons. 1) They failed to find a defender at short notice of the class of Carles Puyol, who retired in the middle of the season due to reacuring knee problems and going under the knife a few times. 2) Gerard Pique was useless in the defence, he even lost his place in the second match. 3) Both the Xavis were old Xavi Hernandes who is 34 years old now, did not see the ball in the game against Holland. He also did not play in the second match.He has now left Barcelona even. 4) Both their strikers Diego Costa and Fernando Torres were useless, as both did not have a realistic shot at the goal.All Diego Costa did was win a penalty.Or it was a whitewash. He had zero shots at goal in 128 minutes. 5) Holland did not allow Spain to play their Tika tika. 6)Spain conceeded 7 goals in their two games, that is more then what they had conceeded in the Euro 2008, 2010 world cup and Euro 2012. There they conceeded only six goals in all.And they played much more games then. 7) Spain have played a total of 113 minutes since Spain have lost two matches in any contest two games in a row. 8) Two successive losses in two two games for a defending champion , is fiirst in any world cup, since 1930.

Luis suarez always wanted to play in the champion league, after all who does not want to play? Last year Arsenal offered 40 million dollars for him. Now the Spanish football media is saying that in the latest contract of Luis Suarez his buy out clause is 68 million pounds. But there is another point in the contract that states that if either of the two Spanish giants Barcelona or Real Madrid come for him the price will fall down to 52 million pounds as Champion League is guarenteed here. And Barcelona have taken a head start on Real Madrid , to buy Luis Suarez, now watch and wait for the truth.

It is interesting to find out the highest paid manager in the world, at club level. And the highest paid manager in the world is the Spaniard , and former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola. His yearly salary which is very huge indeed, and is paid in U.S.Dollars comes to a massive 24 million Dollars yearly. The club paying him this huge salary is the German giants Bayern Munich.
When the German Thomas Muller scored the first hat trick in the 2014 world cup match verses Portugal it also became the 49th hat trick in World cup history, that is from the first world cup match played in 1930 in Uruguay. But Gabriel Batistuta of Argentina is the only footballer in world cup history to score hat tricks in two successive world cups .

The stories in the DAILY MIRROR say that Manchester United want the Arsenal defender Thomas Vermelean , as both Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic have moved on or retired.And the Belgian did not get much playing time at Arsenal. Rumours are that Arsenal want Smalling or Cleverely. But now it appears that the chance of a swap between Luis Nani and Thomas Vermelean changing clubs is more likely . Luis nani may have signed a new contract but still he is unhappy with the time he is getting on the pitch. The privce was ten million pounds for the Arsenal man.

Japan did not have much hope against the Ivory Coast team, the Elephants were far to strong in build, speed and stamina .Japan did loose their world cup opener by a score of 2-1. But nothing to be ashamed about.They even scored their first goal of the match. But it was clearly the Japenese fans who won the biggest applause here,. The Japanese start early when kids they are taught not to litter the place. So they collected the rubbish in plastic bags. It clearly shows their class , which is well above others.
Italy really defeated England in their majestic passing just have allok at the passing between the two countries.. 1) Andres Pirlo out of 108 passes 103 passes were very accurate passes. 2)Danniel Rossi, he made a total of 99 accurate passes of a total of 105 passes. Verratti to made a great deal of accurate passes. Now lets see the accurate passing of England. Here Steven Gerrard made only 62 passes in all.
You must understand that Arsenal have strict rules, such as once a player is thirty years old he will get only a one year contract, no matter how good you are the great Dennis Bergkamp had to renew his contract each year.Players of today at 31 want a three year or two year contract, like Robert Pires and Bacray Sagna. Arsenal very rarely ign a player who has left the club the only example are Sol Cambell and matheu Flamini, both were signed free. Now Arsenal spent 42.5 million on Mesut Ozil, so is right to keep Mesut Ozil on the bench just because Fabregas is there.Arsenal will never spend 30 million pounds on a player with a repeated hamstring problem. Cesc Fabregas should have left Barcelona for Arsenal a year or two earlier.

Iker Casillas the Spanish goalkeeper has seven clean sheets at the world cup. Fabian Barthez of France and Peter Shilton of England have been joint record holders , for keeping clean sheets in ten games at a world cup. Iker Casillas has gone a total of 433 minutes without conceading a goal. The record for the most time to concead a goal is the Italian goalkeeper Walter Zenga, who in the 1990 world cup in Italy went 517 minutes before he let in a goal against Argentina, Claudio Canniga headed in the first goal against Italy in the semi finals. Iker casillas has missed this record by a few minutes only.During their 5-1 defeat against Holland.
Australia is considered the dirtiest country in F.I.F.A , with the most red cards , they have four red cards in ten games. The country with the cleanest record is Spain , who have only one red card from 56 games. The one culprit is Miguel Angel Nadal in 1994. Miguel Angel Nadal is the uncle of Rafal Nadal the tennis player, he played for Barcelona. Brazil have 11 Red cards. Argentina has 10 red cards. Uruguay have 9 red cards.
The Dutch footballer Arjen Robben has a new record to his name now. He out ran the Spanish defender Sergio Ramos in his second goal, he ran 37 K.M, while Sergio Ramos ran only 30 K.M. This is according to F.I.F.A records, he not only out ran Sergio Ramos but danced around the spaniards after Iker Casillas made a huge blunder.

Holland thrashed Spain in the 2014 world cup by a huge margin of 5-1. It was a revenge match between Holland and Spain in the 2010 world cup finals in South Africa. This defeat is also Spains biggest defeat since the year 1963, that is fifty one years ago.Pretty long ago. But it was also tfor the first time in world cup history that two countries, who took part in a previous world cup final, played each other in the opening game, it has never happened before.
The Mexican captain Rafael Marquez has now captained his country, Mexico for four world cups in a row. No other captain has done it in World cup history. He has lead Mexico inthe following world cups, from 2002, 2006, 2010 and in 2014. He is a deffender, and he even played for many years for mighty Barcelona.
Was Spain that bad against Holland in their opening world cup match of 2014? If you look at it it was not a entire one sided game, for forty four minutes the Dutch had difficulty in scoring a goal, it was the Dutch who gave away the first goal of the match to a penalty. For Holland it was their deffenders who made a difference, Daley Blind for those who do not know it is the son of the former Ajax club when they won the Cjhampion League cup in 1993.Danny Blind was their captain It was Daley Blind with his long kick to Robin Van Persie to head the famous opening goal before half time. It was Daley Blind who gave a long kick for Arjeen Robben to control and score the goal. This was the method used by Ajax in 1990s Frank De Boer long kick to Dennis Bergkamp to score then.No tika taka. Actually where did Spain go wrong. one was the error of Iker Casillas in the second Robben goal. Diego Costa failed to impress at all, so did Gerrard Pique make a error for the forth goal. And one man not seen with the ball was Xavi Hernandes, he had about seven touches to the ball in 90 minutes.So even if Iker Casillas has come forward to take the entire blame for the loss it was not fair at all, the strikers and midfielders were unvisible nether was Andres Iniesta or Busquets much in the game.Or for the matter neither was Wesley Sneijder in the game, it was Robin BVan Persie and All Robben.

It is no secret that Jose Mourinho hated Cesc Fabregas , he even kicked him a few times, he had scraps with Franck Lampard many a time during his Arsenal days, and Jose Mourinho, the TRANSLATAR, had scraps with Cesc Fabregas during his Barcelona days as well. Let me ask a question here , we now se Franck Lampard leave Chelsea after a period of over 12 years at Chelsea. Did Cesc Fabregas demand that Frank Lampard should leave Chelsea before he joins Chelsea for thirty million pounds. But Arsenal have pocketed 5.6 million pounds in the transfer deal of Fabregas from Barcelona to Chelsea.

Alesander Korolov has signed a new three year contract at Manchester City, he will be with City till the year 2018. He joined Manchester City from Lazio in the year 2010. But for many matches he was on the bench and did not play much last year. Even though big clubs came knocking at his door like Juvents, Roma and Napoli , all in the Champions leagure, but he has decided to be a bench warmer at Manchester City, he is another MERCENARY at Manchester City.
Yes it is understandable that the Arsenal fans are angry for their club not buying back Cesc Fabregas. But we must also take into consideration that he would have asked a huge weekly salary.Secondly the midfied is all full up at Arsenal with Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Santi Carzola, Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky , Theo Walcott and Miyachi. And to be honest the standard of Cesc Fabregas has fallen each year at Barcelona. I would love to see him this year at Chelsea , will he be the same player he was at Arsenal? Or will he be a another Fernando Torres? And do not forget other players at Arsenals midfield Jack Wilshere, Alex Chamberlain. Fabregas was a substitute at Barcelona, With Xavi Busquets and Iniesta doing the scoring. I will not be surprised if Jose Mourinho keeps him on the bench, have you all forgotten Juan Mata.
The Spanish giants Barcelona have sold their midfielder Cesc Fabregas to Chelsea, the price is undisclosed, but Barcelona wanted thirty million pounds for him Arsenal did not resign him from Barcelona even as they had first choice.The midfield at Arsenal was full up. But Chelsea were keen to buy him as they lost the services of their long serving servant Frank Lampard, as he was 35 years old. Barcelona are also selling their Cameroon midfielder Alexander Song, to generate funds to buy Ivan Ratic, and other players. But Arsenal will get five million pounds on the Cesc Fabregas sale.
The Spanish goalkeeper Victor Valdes who was from the youth academy of Barcelona called THE MASSIA. THE CASTLE. After playing for many years as Barcelona number one goalkeeper, has failed to sign a new contract with Barcelona. He wanted to join the moneyed club in France Monaco, owned by the royal Qatar family. But sadly things did not go his way, now Monaco are not at all to sign him, because of his injury. He now is looking for Liverpool goalkeeper job.It will be the second choice goalkeeper ot Mignolet. This makes Jose Pepe Reyna freer to move on, it could well be a move to Arsenal.

Now that the Muslim holy month of Ramadin starts on the 28 /6 /2014. And it last came during the world cup in 1986. So let us have a thought for these Muslinm footballers at the world cup in Brazil, it will not be easy for them at all. Players like Yaya Toure, Kolo Toure, Karim Benzema, Bacry Sagna,Mesut Ozil, Sami Khedira are just a few. Just imagine playing and running around while fasting, and muslims are not allowed to swallow their owen spit even. I salute all of them , it would be very hard to play ninety minutes of football. So viewers must take this into account when they see the results.
This is the list of highest paid footballers in the world. 1) Wayne Rooney. 300,000 pounds a week. 2) Lionel Messi. 292.000. Pounds a week. 3)Cristiano Ronaldo. 288,000. Pounds a week. 4)Robin Van Persie. 250,000. Pounds a week. 5) Yaya Toure. 230,000. Pounds a week. 6)Sergio Aguero. 220,000. Pounds a week. 7)Luis Suarez. 220,000. Pounds a week. 8)David Silva. 200,000. Pounds a week. 9)Eden Hazard. 185,000. Pounds a week. 10) Fernando Torres. 175,000. Pounds a week.
Even though Jose Mourinho had clearly said he will not be selling the Brazilian midfielder Ramirez, and he would not even listen to any offer from the Spanish giants. But things are looking different now, and the Brazilian Ramirez could well be involved in a swap . According to the metro rumours have it that Luka Modric will join Chelsea and Ramirez will join Real Madrid, but that is not all Chelsea may pay about ten million pounds as well.
As Edison Cavani seems to be unsettled in France with the club P.S.G. Now Manchester United, who are rehauling the entire team have come forward to pay P.S.G , a sum of fifty six million pounds. But there is a doubt in this transfer as Rdison Cavani has made it very clear if he moves from P.S.G , he will then only join a club who are playing in the Champion League. And sadly Manchester United are not in the Champion League next year, nor will they play in the Europa League.

Arsenal were keen on a experinced goalkeeper this summer, and the talk is that the Spaniard Santi Carzola was trying very hard to bring his fellow countryman to Arsenal. But now it looks like it will not happen in the end . One reason was that Iker Casillas is 33 years old, in his twilight years in football. Another reason was that the Real Madrid manager Carlo Anchelotti does not want to sell Iker Casillas. So it looks like Arsene Wenger will go for a younger goalkeeper, the one in mind is the Colombian goalkeeper David Osipa.
It is a very honest truth that both these very highly talented footballers Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have been very poor at scoring goals at the world cups. For example Lionel Messi has scored just one gozal at a world cup, while playing for 571 minutes. Cristiano Ronaldo on the other hand has scored just two goals in a world cup of 754 minutes. While the striker from denmark Jon Dahl Thomasson has scored five goals in the world cup.
This is a list of eleven top footballers not flying to Brazil.It includes Gareth Bale the costliest footballer in the world. 1)Gareth Bale . Wales. 2) Aaron Ramsey. Wales. 3)Zalatan Ibrahimovic.

Montenegero. 10)Robert Lewandowski. Poland. 11) Cristian Erikson. Denmark.
Robbie Savage the former Blackburn Rovers, Birmingham and Wales footballer, who was supossed to travel to Brazil for the 2014 world, as a pundit for the B.B.C. He made a mighty blunder at the airport as he reached it with the wifes passport and not his. The only thing common is Robbie Savage and his wife Sarah are both blonde.
Barcelona had got the Chilean winger from the talian club Udinesse , he has done very well scored good goals , and assisted for many more goals. But as he is a player who needs hs space and freedom, but he is not getting it at Barcelona.And he was put up for sale along with Cesc Fabregas to generate funds. But now Barcelona will sell Alexis Sanchez only after the world cup in Brazil, and there is no doubt about it his price will shoot up like anything after the world cup. Clubs like Manchester United and Liverpool are keen on him, today the price is 25 million pounds.

Robin Van Persie the Dutch striker , who joined Arsenal from Feynoord for a small fee of 2.75 million pounds to Arsenal. He was always injure each year, only his last year was a injury free year he also scored 30 goals . He then was sold to Manchester United for 24 million pounds. He has played a tiotal of 250 games for these two clubs, and also scored a total of 140 goals. But Robin is also known as the glass Robin , as he suffered from knee, groin and ankle injuries in his career. I wonder wehther he will play in the 2014 world , all the games for Holland. He has admitted he is playing with great pain for the last six years.
Shocking as it may sound players are paid in 100,000 pounds to 200,000 pounds a week, but this club was found to be guilty of under paying its staff. the regular hourly wages is 6.31 a hour. The H.M. R.C acted swiftly and made the club pay 4.6 million pounds , it first paid the correct wages to 22,000 to the staff. But the H.M.C.R said one thing very clearly here that the club would not be named or ashamed in public. Any guess which club it could be?
The new Manchester United manager is planning a complete overhaul of the club. He now wants to sell the big Belgian midfielder got from Everton for a huge amount of 27 million pounds. Now Louis Van Gaal is willing to take a big loss on the Belgian who failed to score a single goal last season. But what we must remember here is that in the last season there were only two goals scored by the midfielders from Manchester United. A player must be given more than just a season to gel and pay with new team mates. Louis Van Gaal is now willing to sell Maroune Fellani for 12 .5 million loss. As he has decided to get the German midfielder Toni Kroos and Basitan Schweitzger.

The Cameroon football team were wrangling over the bonuses offered by their Football Federation. The players qwere not happy with the amount offered to the team as bonuses for qualifying for the world cup in Brazil. They were saying a bonuse of 61,000 pounds was not enough , and they wanted more. But now all seems to have been settled, the Cameroon team flew to Brazil on Sunday , 8/6/2014. But this should not be allowed, as these countries do it every time, and hold the country for ransom.
Over the years at a world cup, fans wait to see who has won the golden boot, scoring most goals. It is interesting to note Pele has never ever won a golden boot.Even though he played four world cups. The record still stands at 13 goals by the French striker Just Fontaine in 1958. Gerd Muller has scored 10 goals at a world cup in 1970. The Russian Oleg Salenko scored six goals in the 1994 world cup.It also includes a record of five goals in a single match.
The U.E.F.A predident Michael Platini has made it very clear that European football clubs who have gone and breached the Financial Fair play rules and are fined , like Manchester City and P.S.G were both fined heavily with a 48 million Pounds fine and had their Champion League squad cut to 21 players from 25 playes.The problem here will come when there are red cards and injuries as well. Now according to the rule can make only 37 million pound loss a year. But both Manchester City and P.S.G have gone and got new players before selling a player.David Luiz cost P.S.G 48 million pounds. Now Platini says if clubs like P.S.G and Manchester United are once more cought breaking the financial fair play for the second time they could be out of the Champion League. People ask will Michael Platini take stern action against French club P.S.G.

The last player to score five goals for England in a world cup was Gary Lineker. But since the 1990 World cup held in Italy,England have done badly , it has been a downward trend instead. In fact from that 1990 world cup , no English player has scored more then two goals, that is why England will not do well in the 2014 world cup, with Wayne passed his prime according to Paul Scholes, only Daniel Sturridge to score goals.
Real madrid are keen to get the Brazilian midfielder Ramirez from Chelsea. Jose Mourinho is trying hard by selling players and getting new ones as well, as he went with out a single trophy THE SPECIAL ONE, was not special at all. But it will all depend on Chelsea replacing Ramires with Cesc Fabregas.Mourinho wants changes in a hope to win a title now. Both Frank Lampard, and Ashley Cole have gone, David Luiz was sold for big money to P.S.G. Real madrid believe it will be easier to buy Ramirez from Chelsea then buying Luis Suarez. So it looks like Chelsea will sell Ramires for 25 million pounds , and Cesc Fabregas will be got from Barcelona for 30 million pounds.But Fabregas may join after the world cup.

Germany now have a new top goal scorer in their record books, he is their striker Miraslav Klose . In a friendly and last warm up match for the 2014 world cup, Miraslav Klose scored to go top of the list. Miraslav Klose has now scored a total of 69 goals in his German career. He broke the long standing record of the the great West German goal scorer Gerd Muller who ad held that record for many years he scored a total of 68 goals. Miraslav Klose now needs to score just one more goal to equal the great Brazilian Ronaldo record of fifteen goals at the world cup.
In the 1994 world cup held in the U.S.A. Brazil was a strong team as usual with strikers Bebeto and Romario. In the match against Holland, Bebeto scored a great goal, but it was the celebration of gently rocking his arms to welcome his new born son Matheus Oliver. But now twenty long years have passed not only did Brazil win that world cup in 1994 , they also won their fifth world cup in 2002. But now what about that Baby born during that world cup match? The baby boy Matheus Oliver has grown up to be a famous footballer in his own right, he plays for Flamengo and is also in the under 20 Squad of Brazil.
We seldom read of footballers who are in big demand in their thirties and clubs willing to pay huge sums for them. 1) Gabriel Batistuta. Joined Roma from Florentia 23.5 million pounds. At the age of 31 years. 2) Zalatan Ibrahimovic was 31 years old when he joined from barcelona to P.S.G. for 15.3 million pounds. 3) David Ginola was 33 years old when he joined Aston Villa fromTottenham Hotspurs for3 million pounds in 2000.
The press are writing a lot a rubbish to fill their pages. For example one story travelling around the world , is that Arsene Wenger is to buy Iker Casillas.This could be very far from the truth, as Iker Casillas is 33 years old and Arsene Wenger never buys players in their thirties no matter how good they are, as they can get injuries to easily. The real person Arsene Wenger is looking at is the Colombian goalkeeper David Osipa. Here we must remember Arsene Wenger will not sign up any player like Brendon Rodgers has done. He will watch these players at the world cup and decide on their play only. Even a Italian striker from Napoli will be seen how he plays and how many goals he scores. And another thing we must know, Arsene Wenger does his work on buying players in confidence, it goes for a long time but it may be done on the last day of the transfer. For example the deels for Andrei Arshavin and Mesut Ozil , were all done on the last day and only a few hours were left for the transfer window to close. So expect buying after the world cup.
The Arsenal manager has contacted the great french footballer Zinedine Zidane, who is now the sporing director at the Spanish giants Real Madrid. It is over the purchase of the young Real madrid striker Alvaro Morota. As there has been no progress what so ever in the deal. Arsene wenger is very keen on this youngster, Real Madrid are asking about 25 million pounds for this 21 year old , a little to steep I would say as he is not a regular starter at Real madrid.
The French winger Franck Ribery is now definately not going to the world cup in Brazil. The french manager Dider Deschamps has said Franck ribery has now failed to recover from a back injury. he has now called up the Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderin to take the place of Franck Ribery, it is no secret Franck Ribery will be greatly missed in Brazil, as he has had world cup experience as well. But Dider Deschamps may take a big gamble in taking Franck ribery to the world cup.

1)The 1978 world cup the footballer from ScotlandArchie Gemmil was guilty of being found dope testing , and he was sent home, Scotland used him as a scapegoat for their early departure from the world cup. As the joke goes the Scottish football team return from each world cup , before the footballers even get their post from their fans. 2)In the 1982 World cup the West German team were not at all loved , and their goalkeeper Harold Toni Schumachers crowned himself with shame.In the match between West Gemany and France, with the score standing at 1-1, France brought in substitue Patrick Battiston, as he shot at goal it was marginal wide. But Schumacher came charging at him and elbowed him in the head., the goalkeeper never even bothered to find out how Patrick Battistan was, as he had three broken teeth and damaged verterbra. Schumacher said to Platini tell him I will pay for his crowns. 3)In the 1986 world cup match between England and Argentina. It was all about Dirego Maradona, his solo goals and his ilfamous goal . When he used his hand to sore that goal.The English goalkeeper Peter Shilton pleaded to the referee as it was a ilegal goal. But the referee and linesman saw nothing wrong in it. But Maradona later said the goal was scored by the hand of God. 4) The 2006 World cup Zinedine Zidane head butted the Italian hard man defender Marco MMaterezzi, as Marco Materezzi had continueslly made remarks against Zinedine Zidanes sister.He then butted the Italian and got a red card. Zinedine said I would rather die then polise to Matrezzi , to the E.S.P.N

The Senegal midfielder Papa Boupa Diop has scored three goals in a world cup in 2002. He was responsible to have scored the goal that knocked out the reigning Champions France. 1) Lionel Messi played 571 minutes one goal in two world cups, 2006 and 2010. 2) Cristiano Ronaldo. 754 Minutes.two goals in two world cups 2006/ 2010. 3)Wayne Rooney. 589 minutes. Two World cups NO GOALS. 2006/2010.
According to THE DAILY MAIL, which reported that Real madrid are willing to pay the buy out clause of Luis Suarez of 76 million pounds. Now we must remember the playes that Real Madrid want they always get, like Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth bale, Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham, Luka modric, Michael owen, Luis Figo, Michael Ladrup. And who does not want to play in the champion League each year, not like Liverpool , now with steven Gerrard retiring in a year or two, it want be like last year for sure. Real madrid least bother about the price, they pay it in instalments like Luka Modric and Gareth Bale Real Madrid are also willing to give two players free in exchnge, they are Fabio Conterao and Alvaro Morato.
Tottenham Hotspurs have offered 14 million pounds to Seville , for their left back Alberto Mareno. And along with the cash Tottenham Hotspurs will also give their striker Roberto Soldado on loan to Seville and a player as well etine Capoue. Robert Soldado joined Tottenham Hotspurs from Valencia for a huge amount of 26 million pounds, but he was a utter failure in the E.P.L scoring just two goals in the entire season, he was considered a prolific goal scorer, another case of playing in Spain and England are two very different things. But Alberto Mareno has just missed out in the 23 squad for Spain. But at the same time Chelsea and Liverpool are keen on Alberto Mareno as well.Chelsea want him to replace Ashley Cole who has now moved on at 33 years from Chelsea.
Arsenal are not at all keen to buy the Spanish midfielder , and their former captain Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona. The main reason being that Arsene Wenger would indeed have trouble letting Cesc Fabregas get a game at Arsenal, in the new season. The midfield is full of talented young players like Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott, Arsenal have senior midfielders as well in Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky, Santi Carzorla So let us be honest he would honestly be a waste of money and as a player as well.

The president of Atletico Madrid has now said that Chelsea might have given the Brazilian born Spanish citizen Digo Costa a medical test, but the President of Atletico Madrid Mr Cerezo , has said that Chelsea might have spoken to Diego Costa , and Diego Costa might have even undergone a medical check up at Chelsea, but one thing is crystal clear here that Chelsea will have to pay us a sum of 34 million pounds and not 32 million pounds, as the buy out clause of Diego Costa is 34 million pounds and not 32 million pounds.
It may come as a big surprise to many of you, that all Ballon D Or winners failed to win the world cup in the following year of winning the trophy. 1) Karl Heinze Rummenigge.

The Golden Ball award is given at the end of the world cup to the footballer of the tournament. It has always been won by a player, but in the2-006 world cup the German goalkeeper changed all that. He became the first goalkeeper ever to win the Golden Ball award.
It now looks Arsenal could very well miss out on the Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata. It now appears the the Italian giants THE OLD LADY OF TURIN , have now entered the picture on the sale of the Real madrid striker Alvaro Morata, and preventing him from joining Arsenal. He will now be used as a swap deal pawn , you can say. Real Madrid will be getting Arturo Vidal, the Chilean from Juventus , and Alvaro Morata will join Juventus instead, Real Madrid have also put a buy back clause in the deal, so it looks like Arsenal do not have a whisper of hope.
1) The oldest footballer to play in a world cup, was Roger Milla from Cameroon. 2) Roger Milla was the oldest footballer at a world cup to score a goal, he scored it in the 1994 world cup in the U.S.A , he was 42 years old, old for a striker. 3) The oldest captain to lift the world cup was Dino Zoff of Italy , he did it in 1982.
Frank Lampard is definately leaving Chelsea, as he is 35 years old now. So Chelsea are willing to pay the thirty million pounds to Barcelona , for Cesc Fabregas as they will get a ready made replacement for Frank Lampard. But Manchester City were also keen on the purchase of Cesc Fabregas, they want him to replace Yaya Toure , who is having problems at Manchester City, after the club forgot his birthday, silly excuse he wants a bigger pay cheque that is all. In fact manchester City did not want to make the same mistake with Sergio Aguero on his birthday, City wished him. Actually Chelsea wanted Koke from Atletico Madrid, but it seems he may join Barcelona instead. And Chelsea are even willing to pay Cesc Fabregas a weekly salary of 200,000 pounds.

The German coach has chosen only one reconized striker, he is Miraslov Klose , of Polish origin. Will this be a draw back for Gemany? Not at all as you see there are other players who can very well fill that slot. Lukas Podloski , Thomas Mueller and Andre Schurrie can very well play as strikers in Brazil. Miraslov Klose now plays for the Italian club Lazio, and he also needs one moe goal at this world cup to equal the record of 15 goals scored by the Brazilian Ronaldo Lima.
Even though the Arsenal mens team had to go nine long years to win a silverware, which they did win the F.A cup this year. Arsenal defeated Hull City with a fantastic score of 3-2. All the three Arsenal goals were beuties to the eye. Now the Ladies Arsenal team that has done much better by winning trophies each year, this year they did it again.
