The Tottenham Hotspur coch is keen to buy the Argentinean Mateo Mauscchio, who plays in Spain with THE YELLOW SUBMARINEs or Villarreal , they ate so called because of the colour of their uniform which is yellow. If they can get his Argentinean defender then it would be possible to sell the Belgian defender Juan Vertongen to the Spanish giants Barcelona, even though the Belgian had repeatedly said he was definately going no where in the summer.
Now as barcelona were very keen to strengthen their defence , after the departure of Carles Puyol, and the very bad defence shown by Gerrard Pique. They made an offer of34 million pounds for Marquinos from P.S.G. .But it was rejected straight away. Now Barcelona want the Belgian defender from Arsenal , Thomas Vermalean, as he has lost his place to Per Mertsacker . And he will not com in the price of 34 million pounds he willl cost around ten to twelve million pounds.
Arturo Vidal has passed his medical tests, which were done in Chile. he is very keen desperate to join Manchester United , and the English club have also promised him a weekly salary of 200,000 pounds. But mind you as a fee is not yet agreed with Juventus and nothing is signed as yet he is still very much a Juventus player as of now. Now the big question I ask is Did Juventus give written permission to do those tests? Manchester United wanted to vigrously test Arturo Vidals knee and anckles as they had big problems in the past. I personaly feel he, Arturo Vidal has chosen the wrong club, a club in complete rebuilding for a 28 year old is not the correct thing. It is also reported that Manchester United have already reserved jersey number 7 for Arturo Vidal, the jersey made famous by Eric Cantona, Dabvid Beckham, and Cristiano Ronaldo and Bryan Robson
Just two months after the death of Malcolm Glazer , the father of Glazers, the sons have now decided to sell a total of their Mancheste United shares of 87, eighty seven million shares, just to generate funds. But Adidas the sports company had signed a ten year contract with Manchester United worth 750 million pounds. But Manchester United will have to be very, very careful indeed. According to the contract if Manchester United fail to reach a Champion League in these ten years , they wil then loose 20,twenty million pounds ,and if they fail to reach two consecutive Champion LeagueS they could well loose 52.5 Million pounds. And just having Louis Van Gaal as manager will notdo , or to blame him, it is the players who will have to perform and score goals. They have said if Manchester United fail to reach the top four this year then big players will be sold as Adidas will cut money in Millions.

The Argentinean footballer Carlos Tevez had his step father kidnapped in Beunis Aires. He was kidnapped by people for ransom. And the Italian club Juventus , the club for whom Carlos Tevez plays for , has given him leave to go back to Argentina and get his father free. His family lawyer dealt with the matter, it is believed that ransom money was paid off as his father was released in eight hours time. The ammout i said to be 40,000 Pesos or 3,000 pounds.
The Belgian sriker Romel Lukukku has now gone and joined Everton from Chelsea for a record ammount of 28, twenty eight million pounds, it was a Everton record purchase. Everton are a club who rarely spend their money on players costing around twenty million pounds. The previous highest amount paid was fo the other Belgian Maroune Fellani who joined for 15, fifteen million pounds. Jose Mourinho says he just did not have it in him to score for Chelsea. I disagree with Jose Mourinho completley.. Romel Lakkuku has scored 30, thirty goals when on loan in the last two years.May be Jose Mourinho will get more goals from Fernando Torres, a player nobody wants to buy. But let us see the Everton buying chart, Lakukku cost 28 million pounds or 69.07 percent of Evertons buying of players, the rest of the Everton team are valued at 30.93 percent. A very big risk , but a very big talent as well.
When ever we mention the name Charlton, we always think of Sir Bobby Charlton. But here we must think of his brother jackie Charlton, who like his brother Bobby Charlton was also a one man club footballer.Bobby played all his club football at Manchester United. While Jackie Charlton played all his club football with Leeds United.Actually he played 774 matches for Leeds united. He was a solid defender a vey good back indeed.He won the world cup in 1996 in England. He twice got Leeds back from the second division promoted, he won the League cup, F.A.Cup with Leeds united as well.
Now the German giants Bayern Munich have entered the picture to buy Sami Khedira from Real Madrid. Bayern Munich want to buy him to replace Toni Kroos who left Bayern Munich to join Real Madrid. But the big hatch is that Bayern do not want to buy him paying a big ammount, they want to get him free at the end of next season, as his contract will expire.
The Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho tried indeed very hard to convince the Croatian play maker Luka Modric to join with him He wanted Luka Modric to leave the Spanish giants Real Madrid and make a move to England and join up with him at Chelsea. Which was indeed a god move by Luka Modric. As Jose Mourinho toiled whole season and did not collect any silverware , but at least Luka Modric collected the Champion League , the tenth Champion League won by Real Madrid. After all nobody in their right minds would leave Real Madrid or even say Barcelona.
The big Belgian midfielder Maroune Fellani who was a big hit with Everton but a big flop at Manchester United, has now agreed terms with the Italian club Napoli, for 15 million pounds. But the big question is will Manchester United sell him to Napoli for 15, fifteen million pounds. After all Manchester United had paid Everton 27 .5 million pounds so they are very keen to recoup as much of the money as possible from Napoli, the question of how much will Napoli pay remains to be seen. As Maroune Fellani , Ashley Young and Anderson are all for sale, as Louis Van Gaal wants to clear out the dead wood.
Arsenal were in the driving seat to sign the German Marcus Reus from Borrusia Dortmund in June, before the world cup, but the German tore his anckle ligament and missed the world cup sadly. The price was 27.6 million pounds. Now as he was injured, Arsenal went and got Alexis Sanchez, from Barcelona. Now Liverpool and Manchester United want him so lets see where he goes.
Louis Van Gaal is willing to make a swap with Arsenal as well as Borussia Dortmund. He wants to make swap with Arsenal and get Thomas Vermaelen free and give Arsenal Luis Nani instead He is also willing to give his Japanese footballer at Manchester United Shinji Kangwa to Borrusia Dortmund free and get Mats Hummel free in exchange. This seems hard as Arsenal wanted 12 million pounds for Thomas Vermaelen, and Manchester United value Luis Nani at nine million pounds, so there will be a short fall of three million pounds. And the Borussia Dortmund coach has said Mats Hummels is not for sale at any price.
Arsenal are now very keen to buy the Portuguese player William Carvalho, from Sporting Lisbon. He is a defending midfielder, something like Sami Khedira. But the Sami Khedira deal will not work out as Sami Khedira wants a weekly salary of 135,000 pounds a week. Arsenal had offered 24 million pounds for William Carvalho, but it was rejected.But at a meeting of the club board it was decided to sell him, as they want ready cash to their shopping for more players, the price was actually 35 million pounds, but this ammount could be reduced , even Real Madrid want him. But it is expected that they will sell him to Arsenal, as Arsenal have always paid full cash for the players they buy, while Real Madrid are known to pay in instalments, they are still paying the Luka Modric money as well as Gareth Bales money, they will pay till 2017 at 12.5 million pounds a year.
The Spanish champions are in serious talks of getting the Mexican Javier Hernandes from Manchester United, to replace Diego Costa. For the past eighteen months Javier Hernandes barely had a full game, he was allways coming as a substitute only. Now Manchester United want fifteen million pounds for the Mexican striker, called THE LITTLE PEA. But the Spanish club bbelieve that that they can get him for as little as ten million pounds. Arsenal were very keen to get him, as he scores crucial goals. But it appears he only wanted to move to a club in Spain.
Ronoldhino the famous Brazilian footballer , who has played with P.S.G, Barcelona, A.C.Milan and in Brazil as well. He is also the formerBALLON D Or winner at Barcelona. His brother Robert Assisi , who is also his agent, has said he has terminated his contract with the Brazilian club AtleticoMinero. And will now announce his new club within 24 hours. It is expected to be BOCO JUNIORS the club in Argentina. Boco Juniors want Ronoldhino to replace Juan Roqulme who is 36 years old. But Ronoldhino is going to play till he is 42 he says.

Jose Mourinho is having a big problem at Chelsea, the law will only allow a team of 17 foreign grown players of the age of 21 years in a squad of 25 players. Now with the arrival of Dider Drogba , Chelsea have crossed that number of 17 playes, so some one must be sold. Mourinho wanted John Obi Mikel to go along with another player ., but nobody wanted him. Fernando Torres is to costly to be got , and nobody wants him either. So it looks very much like it will be Petr Cech who will be sold here. Please note the other two homegrown players Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole have moved on. And Petr Cech has told Jose Mourinho very clearly I will not play second fiddle to any one , I will not warm the bench either, so he is bound to go away.
According to the German Media THE BLIND , it is reported that the German speedy winger Marcus Reus, has flatly refused to sign a new contract, even though manage Jurgen Klopp has been trying to convinvce him to sign a new contract. Marcus Reus has said he has a 28,twenty eight million pound buy out clause in his contract, and he is up for grabs. This has alerted the big clubs , like Barcelona, Manchester United and also Liverpool for his signature. But it looks like Liverpool may miss out on him, as Liverpool already have spent 100 million pounds, and they still have not found a striker of the quality of Luis Suarez.
Juventus have acted rapidly and have flatly denied that their Chilean footballer would be leaving Juventus and joining Manchester United for a sum of 63.3 million pounds , and was promised 270,000 pounds a week. The president of Juventus now says Arturo Vidal is very, very happy at Juventus, after all we will play in the champion league next year.And Manchester United are not playing in the champion league. Louis Van Gaal will have to now look else where.
Many of Southampton players have left the club, but now a days there is nothing we can do , it is not possible to keep a player at a club against his will, he will not play properly at all.. It is indeed better that these unloyal players leave the club for greener pastures, but it may not be so rosy on that side after all. Ask Emmanuel Adebayor what happened after he left Arsenal? Now for those of you who do not know it, Southampton have a very good youth Academy, and they keep bringing out stars. Theo Walcott, Alex OxalChamberlain are from that youth accademy. Now they have a few young players to fill the boots of the departed players, they may not be that good, but they do deserve a chance. 1) Matt Targett. 18 years. Left Back. 2)Harrison Reed. 19 Years. Central Midfielder. 3)Sam McQueen. 19 years. Left Winger. 4)Domonic Cape. 19 years. Central Midfielder. 5)Sam Callagher. 18 years Striker. And those Southampton players for very high prices, which was not the real price, this money will help Ronald Koemen by other players. And we here that Jay Rodriguez also wants to join Tottenham Hotspurs.
It is reported that the Argentinean Angel Di Maria, a winger is very keen to leave real Madrid and join up at Manchester United. He knows very well that with the new arrivals of Toni Kroos and the baby faced Golden boot winner, he will now get less and less chances at Real Madrids first starting eleven. But it also said Real Madrid want to sell Angel Di Maria to the French champions P.S.G.For over sixty million pounds. And Real Madrid want to use that money to buy the famous Colombian striker Radamel Falcao Garcia. It now all depends on his sale.
It is reported in THE METRO , that the Chilean footballer who lays his club football with Juventus in Italy , has now made a verbal agreement with Manchester United, the English club willbuy him for 63.3 million pounds, and Arturo Vidal will get a weekly salary of 270,000 pounds. But some time back he had flatly rejected joining up with Manchester United , mainly as the English club are not in the Champion League or for the matter Europa League. But what we must remember here is that Juvenyus THE OLD LADY OF TURIN , are a cash strapped club today, so they will have to sell their big stars.
Monday, July 28, 2014
It is reported in the DAILY MAIL that cash strapped Juventus want to sell both Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba. Now Arturo Vidal is not willing to join manchester United at all, even for 47.6 million pounds. And it is now reported that Louis Van Gaal is trying to get the ROMA player Carl Strootman, even though he is injured a long time case. Maybe Strootman will come cheaper to Manchester United. The real reason Arturo Vidal does not want to join Manchester City is , as he wants to play in the Champion league, and Manchester United are a mid table club tis year, no champion league nor will they play in the EUROPA LEAGUE. Is it because of cash problems at Juventus that their coach Antonio Conte resigned?
The big question I would like to ask you all football fans , is which footballer would score the most goals in this new season.. Will it be one of these three players. 1) Luis Suarez. Barcelona. 2) James Rodriguez. Real Madrid. 3) Robert Lewdawnski. Bayern Munich. Now will it be Luis Suarez who did cost Barcelona 75 Million Pounds. Or will it be james who joined Real Madrid for 60 million pounds. And could it be Robert Lewadonski , who joined Bayern Munich absolutely free. But one thing is very clear all three footballers have scored sacks of goals where ever they played. So let us see at the end of the season who scores the most goals.
Liverpool are looking everywhere to get a striker of the same class as Luis Suarez. Their attempt to get Loic Remy for peanuts at 8.5 million pounds collapsed , as the French man failed a medical test in Boston U.S.A. Now it looks like Liverpool are looking for the Argentinean footbaaller Ezequiel Lavezzi, they ae willing to pay 18 million pounds for him.He plays his football with P.S.G. Now P.S.G were punished by U.E.F.A last years for failing in the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES. Now they have to sell a player to buy the other Argentinean from Real Madrid. Ezequiel Lavezzi joined P.S.G from Napoli for 24 million pounds. But as P.S.G are very keen to buy Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid for 60 million Euros, they must fell a footballer to fall in line and generate funds for the transfer.
The Spanish striker Fernando Torres missed a sitter with a open goal before his eyes and a certain goal to be scored. But he did it again in a freindly match between Chelsea and Olimpija Ljublja . The mpass was made the goalkeeper was on the ground and a ope goal before his eyes,but Fernando Torres chested the ball and it went over the bar, and the chance missed. Better pull your socks up Fernando Torres as both Diego Costa and Dider Drogba have arrived at Chelsea. But in the miss one thing is most likely forgotten, it was the super pass by Fernando Torres to Diego Costa that lead to the new striker scoring a goal.
It is boun to happen if a club of Manchester United , who won over 20, twenty E.P.L titles , and is now in the seventh spot, no good playe will want to come and play there. We saw many flatly reject the English club like Toni Kroos, Arturo Vidal and now the Dutch defender Steven Virj who was wanted by his earlier manager Louis Van Gaal, who is the manager at Manchester United. Now Steven Virj has gone and joined the Italian club Lazio for 6.7 million pounds. Lazio have now confirmed the deal for Steven Virj, it cost Lazio 9 million Euros o complete.
These two brothers in law have now joined two big clubs this season. James Rodriguez the baby faced footballer who won the Golden Boot at the 2014 world cup in Brazil is the brother in law of the Colombian goalkeeper David Ospina, who joined Arsenal for 3.2 million pounds. To explain it better, David spinas sister Danielle is the wife of James Rodriguez, who has joined Real Madrid for 72 million pounds it is said. It is the practice of Arsenal wenger the manager of Arsenal , to watch the players carefully during world cups and Euro Cups and then do his shopping for players, he was pleased at the goalkeeping of David Ospina in the world cup at Brazil, he decided he wanted him and got him for 3.2 million pounds from Nice, peanuts I would say, as he is a good keeper.
Now Manchester United have enter the race to sign the Colombian Juan Cuadrado for a total sum of thirtuy million pounds. But Barcelona also want him as a replacement for Dani Alaves, who is not certain if he will stay on at Barcelona Juan Cuadroua was a bright star at the 2014 world cup , but will he be willing to move to a club that is a midtable club.
Bothe the English clubs Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspurs have lost out on buying the French footballer Antoine Griezmann. the 23 year old French footballer who made a big impression at the world cup has decided to join another Spanish club , he now joins Atletico Madrid fron Real Soceidad for 24 million pounds. He has scored a total of fifty one goals in a total of two hundred and one games. Atletico Madrid are rebuilding their team after Diego Costa , Filipe Luis joined Chelsea.
Now a delegation from Inter Milan , in Italy have decided to travel to Southampton for talks about buying the Italian striker Dani Osvaldo, who joined Southampton for 15 million pounds, but was not only a flop but also very unhappy at the style of the game played in England. He was got for a record buy at 15, fifteen million pounds. Last season he was given out on a loan even. So the exodous of Southampton players continue, in fact it has become more then a joke. But do not blame onald Koeman , who is their new manager, his hands are tied. These players are using the BOSSMAN RULE to move out to Liverpool, a champion league club you see , that makes all the difference. Let us be honest there is no loyalty to their clubs anymore.
Sunday, July 27, 2014
It is now reported in THE METRO that Manchester United are willing to pay Juventus also called THE OLD LADY OF TURIN a sum of 47.4 million pounds for the Chilean footballer Arturo Vidal . But now as it is reported in THE DAILY MIRROR that F.I.F.A is strongly deciding to set a fixed price on these footballers, as far to many of them are being sold for over ffty mkillion pounds in the past two years itself, and these crazy spending will go on. But it was also reported that Juventus had given manchester United and Liverpool a date to finish the deal, it is 2/8/2014.
According to THE DAILY MIRROR, F.I.F.A has now thinking of putting a fixed price on each footballer, gone will be the crazy price put on footballers. If we look at the last two years Edison Cavani, James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale, Neymar, Radamal Falcao, Luis Suarez. Have all been sold for over 50 million pounds. So small clubs can not buy these players, as it is madness. It has also influated the price of players, and clubs are are forced to spend more. Even managers like Arsene Wenger who do not spend like others was forced to follow them. Like a old Liverpool player has said that it was not correct to pay 20 million pounds for the Croation defender Dejan Loveran.
Diego Simone was looking for a triker after he sold Diego Costa to Chelsea. They have now gone and paid 24 million pounds for the French striker Antoine Greizman from their fellow Spanish club Real Soceidad. He was playing five years in the Spanish club, so he will not be a stranger in Spain. And what could have helped the move is that Atletico Madrid are the Spanish giants. Any way Diego Costa was a one season wonder, we saw him at the world cup in Brazil he was toally lost for Spain.
The Chilean footballer Alexis Sanchez was the star at the Brazilian world cup 2014. But let us look at his hard life as a child. His brotherHomberto says their father abondoned them a children, their mother washed fish.They grew up in a mining village in Chile, so Alexis Sanchez had thre choices as a proffession a miner, a fisherman and a footballr, and he chose the latter are we not glad thart he chose it for us. As a child he washed cars , did acrobatics on the streets of Tocopilla , which means DEVILS CORNER.You can imagine the aea he grew up in, he would knock on the doors asking for food , the coins he got from street acrobatics was not enough. He played football and was very good at it, he was called the EL NINO MARVILLA or THE MARVELOUS KID. His football started with a small club in Chile, he then moved to a bigger club in Chile.Then he moved to Argentinas famous club River Plate, and from there to Italy where he played for Udanisee and then moved on to Spanish giants Barcelona. Arsenal have now brought him a fee of 35 million poundds and he now gets a weekly salary of 130,000pounds, far days from a few coins washing cars and doing acrobatics on the street.
The Brazilian forward Douglas Costa is wanted by Arsenal, and Arsenal are willing to offer 15.8 million pounds or twenty million Euros for him. Douglas Costa has just refused to join his club Shakstar Donstek in Ukraine , but he refuses to go back to his club , and is staying back in Brazil. Now let us see if this complicated matter will be sorted out, if the Ukranian club will be willing to sell him. Douglas Costa says that life is very dangerous in Ukraine.
Liverpool knew one thing very well and that it was going to be very, very hard indeed to replace Luis Suarez as a striker, even that 75 million pounds would not help much. The French striker Loic Remy was avalible for a real bargain price of 8.5 million pounds, his buy out clause. But it is reported that Liverpool have sadly washed their hands of this deal. The reason is that the French striker Loic Remy has now failed the stringen medical test at Liverpool. Brendan Rodgers was bitterly upset with this result, even though Liverpool have not said where Loic Remy failed his test , which part was the cause. Brendan Rodgers knew very well that he would not get a striker at this bargain price, they are very costly indeed , he will have to pay much more for the next one.
Mr Nick Clegg the deputy primeminister of England has said that Russia should be stripped of holding the 2018 world cup in Russia. This is after the anger of shooting down the Malaysian Airlines, and killiong over 200inocent passengers. Now we can not say in what state Russia will be in in the year 2018, security could be vrery bad. So which country will be willing to send a team to a war torn Russia. Will tourists come in large numbers, will hotels be full during that one month? I wonder very much. I also wonder who will come forward to sponsor the world cup, beside Russias GAZPORM. But Sepp Blatter is sturburnly saying that the 2018 world cup will go through. Let us see by 2018 if he will still be so sure. And another problem that F.I.F.A will face at the 2018 world cup played in Russia is big racial problems. All these three footballers did face racial problems in Russian clubs, a bnana was thrown at Roberto Carlos , so were Cristian samba and samuel Etoo abused .
This has come as a great relief to the Arsenal staff and fans all over the world. It was reported early last year that Santi Carzola the little Spaniard, who has good kick in his free kicks, just ask the HULL manager Steve Bruce, that free kick was a super come back for Arsenal to win the F.A.Cup. But before that F.A cup win he was sad and indeed wanted to move on in the quest of silverware, after all it his right. But he flatly denies he wants to move to the Spanish La liga champions, he is also very happy with the new signings made by Arsene Wenger this summer. And I make it very clear he said I am staying at Arsenal, as I have signed a long new contract as well.
David Ospina the Colombian goalkeeper has now joined Arsenal, from the French club Nice, it is reported for a sum of 3.2 million pounds. For those who do not know much about him , he was the goakeeper from Colombia a, and played in the 2014 world cup. In the world cup qualifiers he was the goalkeeper who conceeded the least number of goals , it was a number of thirteen only, this is also the least number of goals conceeded by a South American goalkeeper in the world cup qualifying matches. He will replace Lukas Fabianski who moved on to Swansea City, the Welsh club. And to get a very good goalkeeper for 3.2 million pounds is unthinkable nowdays , with the prices of footballers all shooting so high, all inflated prices is dead cheap peanuts I would say. It is reported in THE METRO with pictures that David Opina broke down emotinally at the clubs send of , after all he was there for seven years.

Ramirez , not the Brazilian footballer, but this Ramirez plays his football with a Mexican club called MINEROS. In the match between Mineros and Nexca . The striker from Mineros Ramirez scored a fity yard goal, it took exactly four minutes on the clock, it now becomes the fatest goal in the Mexican football league. The referee blew the whistle once for starting and infour sconds it was for the goal.
The Brazilian born footballer Deco, who played for Portugal , had a testimonial match in his honour it was played atTHE ESTADIO DA DRAGO the ground of F.C.Porto. The teams that took part in the match were the 2004 Champion League winner, which was F.C.Porto and the 2006 Champion League winner that was F.C.Barcelona. Now Deco played as a midfielder for both F.C.Porto and F.C.Barcelona so they played against each other. The Barcelona had players like Ludvic Guily, Givoni Bronchurst, Xavi Hernandez, Lionel Messi and others. Deco was famous to take free kicks , for both clubs.Even after these years he was the same talented player who scored a beautiful lob from a Lionel Messi pass, Deco scored two goals and Lionel Messi and Samuel Etoo scored a goal each. The match endede in a 4-4 draw. And as Deco had played for both F.C.Porto as well as F.C.Barcelona, he played for each team for 45 minutes. This clearly shows these Footballers are born with sklill ,, and not developed skill. One goal was a cheeky one Lionel Messi passed the ball from the line for Samuel Eto oto tap it in.
According to the DAILY MIRROR Arsenal have signed the right back from Calum Chambers for 7 million pounds. He will be back up as a right back to Mathieu Debuchy. This 19 year old was watched carefully by the Arsenal scouts for a fer months.As he is a teenager he has many years of football at Arsenal.After all who does not want to play in a Champion League each year, which Arsenal does. Arsenal have always admired the Southampton youth accademy, they have gone and raided it before , they got real stars from there Theo Walcott, Oxald Chamberlain and now Calum Chambers.
Juventus THE OLD LADY OF TURIN has now come and given both the English clubs Liverpool and Mancheste United till 2/82014 to complete the deal of buying the Chilean. Arturo Vidal has made it very clear that he is not at all interested in moving to Manchester United, who are a mid table club now. Another reason he may not go to Manchester United will be thatthey have only offered 39 million pounds for the talented Chilean footballer. While Liverpool has come forward to offer 42.5 Million pounds for Arturo Vidal. One thing is very clear the clock is ticking by merrily.
Friday, July 25, 2014
Barcelona are trying to hijack the deal from Manchester united. As both these clubs are keen to get the former Arsenal captain and defender. It is reported that Barcelona are willing to pay Arsensl a sum of eleven million pounds for the Belgian defender. Manchester United were also keen on him, but Arsenal were trying to get a player as well as cash for him. It is very well understood that Thomas Vermalean has lost his place at Arsenal.
The Colombian James Rodriguez who won the Golden Boot at the 2014 World cup, and who has joined Real Madrid for 63 million pounds. Now Real Madrid have said that they have sold jersey number 10 , to be worn by the baby faced James Rodriguez in large numbers. The actual number of jerseys sold are 345,000 Three huhundred forty five thousand jerseys were sold in 48 hours. The amount got from these jersey sales are 20.7 million pounds.So in other words Real Madrid will have to make 42.3 million pounds only.
The Southampton exodus of their footballers continue with their right back Calum Chambers signing for Arsenal for seven million pounds, he will be the back up to the newsigning from Newcastle Mathieu Debuchy. No it looks more and more likely that Carl Jenkins will be going on loan to some other club, with West Ham United the most likely club. The big point in Calum Chambers favour is that he is very young and talented player, he has a good future ahead of him at Arsenal.
Dider Drogba the striker from the Ivoy Coast has rejoined Chelsea after a few years gab. He is already 36 or may be 37 years old . Was it wise to bring Dider Drogba back to Chelsea again at this age and in this form he is in .We saw him at the world cup 2014 played in Brazil, so let us be honest he has long since passed his prime.He was a shadow of the old. Now Fernando Torres is up for sale, Samuel Etoo is gone, and to be honest Jose Mourinho must be regretting paying Atletico Madrid 32 million pounds for Diego Costa one of the maiin flops of 2014 world cup. The last kick Dider Drogba had for Chelsea was scoring a penalty kick in the Champion League. Now Frank Lampard has joined M.L.S in the U.S.A and Ashley Cole has joined A.S.Roma. He will come cheap but the weekly salary will still be high. If you ask me it is a bad buy, but it appears Jose Mourinho is desperate for a striker.
The Italian coach Claudio Ranieri who has the pet name of THE TINKERMAN, as he changed the players so often. He was manager of Chelsea, Juventus, Valencia, Monaco Parma, Fiorentina, Calgary, Atletico Madrid . Just a few of the many clubs he has managed, he was a success at some clubs we can not say he was a total failure as he did win trophys as well in Spain and in Italy. He was sacked from Chelsa and he poccketed four million pounds as compansation, he was sacked at Monaco and he collected another four million pounds, so with the other clubs he might have made about thirty million pounds, as he is often sacked. Now he has taken over as the coach of the Greece team, as Greece have sacked their Braziliancoach Santos after the world cup. The point I am making is he is a lucky man, even after getting sacked he finds a job soon.
Over the years footballers were got for a huge amount but failed very badly indeed. 1) Fernando Torres joined Chelsea from Liverpool for 50 million pounds.But scored 20 goals only. 2)Juan Sebastin Veron, joined Manchester United from Lazio, for 28.1 million pounds.But flopped so so he was sold to Chelea where he flopped again. 3)Andrei Shevchenko joined Chelsea from A.C.Milan for 30 .8 million pounds. But failed to shine like he did at Milan. 4)Bebe. Joined Manchester United from Portugal,for 7 million pounds, but failed to score a goal. 5)Stuart Downing was got for 20 million pounds. But failed terribely. 6)Jonathan Woodgate was got for13 million pounds, but was always injured at Real Madrid. 7) Michael Owen joined Newcastle united from Real Madrid for 16 million pounds , but scored 26 goals in four years. 8) Andy Carrol joined Liverpool from Newcastle United for 35 million pounds but was a super flop , he now plays at West Ham United, he is out for four months again injured.
Jose Mourinho is having a major problem, about keeping both the goalkeepers happy at Chelsea. Both stuburnly do not want to be the second number goalkeeper at Chelsea. Both Petr Cech and the Belgian goalkeeper Thiabaut Courtios are both very , very good . But last season Petr Cech conceded more goals to ThiabuatCourtios, while Petr Cech played for Chelsea, Thiabuat Courtios was given on Loan to Atletico Madrid, and they did win the Spanish La Liga. I wonder who will be willing to play second fiddle to who.
Arsenal are now willing to offer a total of nine million pounds for the winger from Portugal Luis Nani. The new coach of Manchester United Louis Van Gaal has told him that he has no plans to play him in his team, and he is a surplus at the club. So Arsenal are bound to gain here, as they can get their player for a very low price indeed , I would say it is peanuts. And another point in Arsenal favour is that he is only 27 years of age, but even being a good player he lost his way due to the two managers who refused to give him a starting spot in matches.Another case of a footballers career ruined by managers. But Luis Nani is also wanted at Juventus and also at A.C.Milan.
In the post that Real Madrid could sell Cristiano Ronaldo, did indeed sound funny. But let me remind you all that it is not rubbish as it sounds at first. Real Madrid seldom let a footballer from their famous club retire at say 40 or 39 years of age.Like Ryan Giggs did at Manchester United and Dennis Bergkamp did at Arsenal. They are known to sell their stars once their golden period at Real Madrid is over. I take the example of these two famous players Roberto Carlos and Raul Gonzalvez. Roberto Carlos the famous Brazilian defender free kick specialist known for the famous banana kicks at free kicks, Fabian Barthez just stood still and watched the ball go in. Raul was the darling of Real Madrid fans, he was from their youth accademy, and played many games for Real Madrid, he was Spains record holder with the most goals , before David Villa broke it. He was also top scorer in the Champion league. Roberto Carlos was shocked when after playing eleven years for Real Madrid he was shown the door.Raul was sold to Schalke in Germany. So we can wait and watch what happens.

John Henry being a American knows nothing of football what so ever.If he thinks Ricky Lambert is a replacement for Luis Suarez he is very wrong , as Ricky Lambert will not score 30 goals for Liverpool neither will he win the P.F.A. Ricky Lambert was got before Luis Suarez was even sold.Loic Remy to will not fill the shoes of Luis Suarez. And do not forget Steven Gerrard is getting old and is in his twilight years at Liverpool. he is getting injured to often. And Daniel Sturidge is a injury prone player as well, he scored 20 goals last year, but do not expect it each year. Actually Liverpool were willing to sell Luis Suarez for 100 million pounds, and when the bidding started Real Madrid was also in the picture with Barcelona, but Real Madrid did not want him after the biting incident at the world cup. So Liverpool lost 25 million pounds , when Liverpool sold Luis Suarez to Barcelona. Now we hear in the press that Barcelona have taken the Luis Suarez case to the Court Of Arbitation. And the four month ban could be reduced , but the four month ban for Uruguay will still stay.So he can play more games for Barcelona. Liverpool are buying players and will now spend 150 million pounds on players, with a whole new team, will the players gel as a team. I wonder what MrJohn Henry is smoking now? Mr John Henry never comes to watch his club Liverpol play, not like Roman Abrahomvic who comes for most of the Chelsea games.
The president of Real Madrid buys only big named footballers, we do not buy any talented kids.So he says. So this is the top ten costliest footballers brought by REAL MADRID. 1)Gareth Bale. 86 Million Pounds. 2)Cristiano Ronaldo. 80 Million Pounds. 3)James Rodriguez. 60 Million Pounds. 4) Kaka. 56 Million Pounds. 5)Zinedine Zidane. 45 Million Pounds. 6)Luis Figo. 37.Million.Pounds. 7)Ronaldo. 34 . Million Pounds. 8)Karim Benzema. 30 Million Pounds. 9)Xavi Alonso. 30 .Million Pounds. 10) Luka Modric. 30. Million Pounds. But Real Madrid pay in instalments. And they also sell big footballers to generate funds. for example when Cristiano Ronaldo joined them , both Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder was sold. When Gareth Bale was got Mesut Ozil and Gonzalo Higuain were sold. This part Fiorentina Perez will not tell you all.
David Ospina the Colombian goalkeeper at the 2014 world cup in Brazil really did well for himself. Arsenal have come forward to buy him from the French club Nice , for three million pounds. But why did the deal take so long to materalize . The simple reason is Nice wanted a goalkeeper to replace David Ospina, they have now found one in the form of Rias M Bohli, the Algerian goalkeeper. in the2014 world cup.So now the move can be completed this week.
Yes there is no doubt about it Cristiano Ronaldo is the darling of Real Madrid , but we must bear in mind a few things his age he is nearing thirty years and getting more injuries as expected, but he gets them a lot of goals as well as lots and lots money . He has scored 56 goals in 49 games. He is the darling of the Real Madrid fans like Raul was at Madrid in the 1990s. But with the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES it is becoming very hard for Real Madrid to balance the books. And another thing is they have paid through their noses for James Rodriguez, He will have a chance to score goals as well, so Ronaldo number of goals may dry up. Any way we may not have to worry for a year or two , then we may see Ronaldo move on.
The Isreal football club Maccabi Haifa players were playing a friendly football match with the French club Lille. It turned out to be nothing but friendly. A group of Palestenians invaded the pich which was very shameful, not only did they wave their flags but started kicking and attacking the players on the pitch, stewards came on a cought a few palestinians, the footballers joined in fists and kicks were all frely used. This was absolutely disgusting on the part of the Palestinians. They sadly mixed their politics with sport, which should never happen. It is for this reason that clubs from Israel play in the Champion League, this trouble would be there every time a club from Isreal played in the middle East. Sadly the match was called of by the referee in the 80th minute. Absolutely disgusting on the part of these young Palestineans.
Luis Suarez will complete his ban for four months, that will end in the end of october. But any guess which club he will be playing against? A day after he completes that ilfamous four month ban, he will be playing in a EL CLASSICO.OR THE CLASSIC. The EL CLASSICO is the match played yearly between arch rivals as well as Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid. Oh boy Oh boy it will indeed be a mouth watering EL CLASSICO indeed.
Sami Khedira had no desire what so ever to join Arsenal .All he wanted was to tripple his weekly salary. He was getting a weekly salary of 50,000 pounds at Real Madrid. He wanted to tripple his weekly salary at Arsenal to 150,000 pounds a week.He is definately worth that much, he just was to greedy and wanted to milk Arsenal. But Arsenal were far to smart for him. As Arsenal do not give such crazy weekly salaries to any one. Even Alexis Sanchez will only get 130,000 pounds to 140,000 pounds a week. The latest talk is that Sami Khedira will be staying on in Spain with Real Madrid. Sami Khedira who is of Turkish decent like Mesut Ozil does not sing the German national anthem, and that is shameful on his part, as he is paid by Germany, lives in Germany as well. Lukas Podolski , Per Mertsacker and Mesut Ozil had encouraged thim to join Arsenal.
There is no doubt Steven Gerrard was the best after Paul Gascoigne in the 1990s, yes there was Paul Scholes and David Beckham as well. But Gerrard was different he gave his heart and soul for the England and was imensley proud to wear the famous white jersey. He got goals for the team encouraged the younger players all the time, he was a good leader a real captain. But who will be fit to take that armbannd.? Will it be Wayne Rooney, Joe Hart r some youngster. The captain must be respected and be a leader on the pitch like Tony Adams and Steven Gerrard.

The Spaniard Santi Carzola did indeed do very well at his time at Arsenal. But last year he was getting rather restless and may be homesick . He had said that if Arsenal did not win a trophy he was going to move on with his career. Now last year Arsenal won the famous F.A.Cup , so he should not have much trouble about a trophy. Now Atletico Madrid the Champion League winner want him, but like all Spanish clubs money is very hard to get, so clubs sell most of heir top players abroad. Arsenal have made it very clear that they will not sell Santi Carzola cheap, they want a total of 15, fifteen million pounds for him.
Barcelona have gone and replaced their long serving captain and central defender Carles Puyol, yes it wa a hard job to find a good replacement. The player chosen to fill the boots of Carles Puyol at Barcelona will be the French central defender Jeremy Mathieu . Now Jeremy Mathieu was got from Valencia for 15 .8 million pounds. Jeremy Mathieu who is also thirty years old becomes the costliest defender.
Now the French moneyed by Qatar, are keen to buy the Spaniard Fernando Torres ,. Chelsea are willing to take a big hit as they are willing to sell him for 20 million pounds.Which I feel is far to much 15 million pounds is a more realistic price for failure who has repeatedly flopped at Chelsea.So Chelsea ae willing to take a thirty million pound loss on him, another player whose career was ruined . Now Fernando Torres will have less playing time as Diego Costa has joined Chelsea and Dider Drogba will be arriving as well. Now Atletico Madrid also want Fernando Torres, only the salary part is difficult for the Spanish club.
The Argentinean icon Lionel Messi wanted to join Arsenal, when his contract talks with Barcelona was not making any headway. The talks would not progress sadly. It was then Lionel Messi had a talk with the Spaniard Cesc Fabregas about Arsenal , Arsene Wenger and the club. As Cesc Fabregas spent quite a few years playing at Arsenal, and was even the Arsenal captain, after the departure of Patrick Vieira and Theirry Henry. Ofcourse he heard only good things from Cesc Fabregas. But luckily for Lionel Messi the contract was finally settled, with better terms, and a bigger buy out clause it 175 million pounds, as a buy out clause. Anybuyers around? But what does the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger say to all this? He was dumbfounded and said it would be a honour to have had Lionel Messi at Arsenal. Thankfully it all ended well , and Lionel Messi signed a new contract atBarcelona.
Barcelona have gone and sold their young striker Bojan Krkic to Stoke City, the amount is not yet disclosed. Bojan Krkic was a bright prospect for Barcelona, and he played a total of 120 matches for the Spanish giants Barcelona, so he must have been good to play so many games, but with Batrcelona the players are all talented , so to get a starting spot is very hard. So last two years he was on loan with A.s.Roma first and last year he was with the Dutch giants Ajax. He had scored ample goals wheeever he played. But the purchase of Luis Suarez for 75 million pounds means players would be sold to make that money. Bojan Krkic was no ordinarry player he is Barcelonas youngest goal scorer at 17 years and 54 days.And in the yearly days he was first choice before players like Theirry Henry and Zalatan Ibrahimovic, jut think of it he must have had good skills to do this.
Manchester City are so very keen to hold on to their Argentinean striker Sergio Aguero, by the way he is the son in law of the Argentinean legend Diego Maradona. Sergio Aguero is getting a weekly salary of 200,000 pounds, but his contract will expire in the year 2017,, so Manchester City are willing to give him a bumper deal that will be 52 million pounds through bonuses. After all this money will have to fall according to U.E.f.A FIINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULE.

Real Madrid actually wanted to buy Radamel falcao Garcia, when they found out that their arch rival Barcelona were bold enough to sign Luis Suarez from Liverpool. But it was Cristiano Ronaldo and his big ego that got in the way, and he vetoed the deal for buying Radamel Falcao. real madrid then went to buy James Rodriguez for 63 million pounds from Monaco. While on the other hand Lionel Messi welcomed Luis Suarez with open hands at Barcelona. But just remember the star of the world cup could be a utter flop. Let us take the case of Andrei Arshavin, who was the star at Euro 2008, but floped at Arsenal, he himself said he was a average player. He joined for 15 million pounds and got a weekly salary of 80,000 pounds, in the end he was released to save the weekly salary money.
Atletico Madrid are keen on buying two players from Arsenal, they are Santi Carzola and Nacho Moneral. Now Arsenal have already spent 45,fortyfive million pounds on buying Alexis Sanchez and mathieu Debuchy. The Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simone wants Nacho Monreal to fill the spot of the defender Felipe Luis who was sold to Chelsea, and also keen on Santi Carzola, as it is reported that he might loose his starting spot to Alexis Sanchez. And another story says that the Spaniard is homesick like most Spaniards get at Arsenal, Jose Antonio Reyes is a example. And Santi Carzola wanted to leave last year only , and join the Spanish champions.
The joy of the players winning the world cup for the forth time, and the first ever by unified Germany. In the joy of celebtation there was a chip falling out of the cup . And the head of the German F.A is getting it fixed. This is what happens when the world cup went to people who were not allowed to touch it. By rrule only the players , staff and head of state can touch it. But in Brazil we are seeing singer Rihana touching and carrying it, the wives of the German footballers to handled it. So this was bound to happen sooner or later. But the big news is luckily IT WAS A REPLICA of the world cup. The original one is in a safe. By the way nobody has owned up as yet , to who damaged the cup. It happened back in 2006 when Italy won the world cup, that time the culprit was Fabio Canavarro.
The strike force of Real Madrid of just these three players cost a huge 226 million pounds. 1)Cristiano Ronaldo, 80 Million Pounds. 2) Gareth Bale. 86 Million Pounds 3) James Rodriguez. 60 Million Pounds. This all adds up to 226 million pounds. If you look into the history of the Dutch Giants Ajax, you will be shocked to find out the high price Real madrid have paid. In the history of Ajax 114 years, Ajax have never spent so much money on all their players put together This is absolute madness. WHERE IS THE FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES. Even Barcelona have not paid so much for Neymar 71 million pounds.Luis Suarez 75 Million pounds . Lionel Messi was from the La Massia accademy he came free.
It was reported in the Spanish press that Fernando Torres was wanted by his boy hood club Atletico Madrid. But the Spanish club were in financial poblems before and are still in deep trouble. They wanted to get Fernando Torres from Chelsea for 20 million pounds. But as Fernando Torres is not willing to take a pay cut, he wants the same salary of eigh million a year. He should realize that there is a ocean of difference between these two clubs, Chelsea is owned by a Russian billionaire but Atletico Madrid do not have a sugar daddy. Atletico Madrid were forced to sell players to generate funds, like Diego Costa and FelipeLuis.
The Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has flatly told Manchester United that Mat Hummels is not going anywhere , and they can forget getting him for a poor 16 million pounds.He is worth much more, after the world cup in which he scored two goals and did very well for Germany.His price has risen very high, we just saw James Rodriguez being sold to Real Madrid for 80 million Euros or 60 million pounds. Jurgen Klopp has also said that Marcus Reus is also not going anywhere for the matter, Marcus Reus sadly missed the 2014 world cup in Brazil, due to injury.
Over the years Real Madrid ae known to buy players at huge , huge sums of money. But they will suffer at the same time. When Real Madrid got Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United for a then world record of 80 million pounds But they had to sell their best Players , they then sold Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder. When they got Gareth Bale for 86 million pounds, another world record, for a player who will not score 25 goals in a season. It is madness. Then to generate funds they had to sell Mesut Ozil, for 42.5 million pounds. Now they want to buy James Rodriguez , just because he got the golden boot. For a huge amount 60 million pounds. Now Sami Khedira , Angel Di Maria and Isco will be sold out to make the money. What we must remember here last year they were Champion League winners, so there was no need to change the players at all. They just want to get James Rodriguez , as Barcelona got Luis Suarez. Now it is official that James Rodriguez has joined Real Madrid for 80 million Euros.Or 60 million pounds.

The Spanish press says that Barcelona have admitted defeat in the sale of Mat Hummels from the German club Borusia Dortmund. The deal is not a done thing in any way , only the Spanish press have said so. And the defender Mat Hummels has not yet signed the deal, so let us wait and watch what will happen. It is reported also in the Spanish press that the Dutch footballer Daley Blind is in Barcelona, is it for a holiday or to sighn for Barcelona? After all Daley Blind was one of the IDEAL ELEVEN TEAM after the world cup. It is reported also that the coach of Ajax in Amstardam Franck De Boer had pleaded with Daley Blind to play one more year at Ajax. It is said that Mat Hummel had snubbed Barcelona, for Manchester United, the price s 16 million pounds.
Liverpool are loking high and low to ffind a striker of the same class as Luis Suarez, and that is not going to be easy, as players like Luis Suarez are very rare indeed and very costly as well. As the transfer market ticks on merrily , Liverpool decided on the French Striker Karim Benzema, Now Karim Benzema will be very costly like he will cost Liverpool 40 million pounds, and with Real Madrid told to shell out 90 million pounds for James Rodriguez, Real wil increase the buying price to 60 million pounds, and he will ask for a weekly salary of 200,000 punds. But will he leave sunny Spain for damp old Liverpool, with no regular guarantee of champion league.
The Spanish striker Fernando Torres who plays for Chelsea in the E.P.L, but has failed to deliver there. But he scored 91 goals in 224 games for Atletico Madrid. He then joined Liverpool, he was got by the Spanish manager of Liverpool Rafael Benitez, in Spain Fernando Torres was called tTHE EL NINO THE KID. It now appears that the seniorr executive of Atletico Madrid Miguel Angel Marin is willing to pay a sum of 13 million pounds for Fernando Torres, as they want a proven striker, as Diego Costa has joined Chelsea, and it is also rumoured that their old star Dider Drogba will be joining Chelsea on a years deal, even though he is 36 years old , well and trully passed his glory days.
1) Italy is the leader after winning four world cups they have ninety players to win the world cup 2) West Germany and unified Germany with four world cups have 64 players to win a world cup. 3) England have only won a world cup in 1966. So 24 players won a world cup.
1) Juventus have the most world cup winners they have a total of 22 world cup winners. 2) Bayern Munich have a total 21 world cup winners. 3) Barcelona and Real Madrid have a total of 9 players each .Or 18 players in all
Arsenal have the most world cup winners in the club. Arsenal have had six world cup winners in their team. 1998 winners were Patrick Vieira, and Emmanuel Petitt.With France. 2010 Ces Fabregas With spain 2014. Lukas Podolski, Mesut Ozil, Per Mrtseckar With Grermany. Manchester United and West Ham United have only three world cup winners each.
The English midfielder Steven Gerrard who is 34 years old, and has 114 caps to his credit and 21 goals for England has finally decided to retire from duty for England . He said it took a lot of time and a lot of advice from players, friends and managers to convince him to retire. But what actually caused him to decide to retire was the 2014 world cup in Brazil. He was a utter faiilure there, in fact he was so bad he was listed in the flops of the 2014 world cup along with Diego Costa. He was also guilty of giving the ball twice to Luis Suarez in the match England between Uruguay. Thank you for the many matches we enjoyed to watch. But he says he will continue to play club football with Liverpool. He played for England from 2000 to 2014.
Daley Blind the Dutch defender , who really did well at the 2014 world cup in Brazil, and was even selected for the eleven players from all the 32 countries in THE IDEAL TEAM. For those of you who are unaware Daley Blind is the son of Danny Blind the former Ajax and Holland captain in the 1990s The big question every one is now asking is , whether Daley Blind was in Barcelona on a real holday or whether he had come all the way to join F.C.Barcelona. As F.C Barcelona have a new manager in Luis Enrique, a former Real Madrid and Barcelona player, he is one of the few players to leave Real Madrid and join their arch rivals Barcelona, and he is making many changes as well. Now Danny Blind was working with Louis Van Gaal with the Dutch football team at the 2014 world cup. Now Danny Blind will be with the Dutch team and new manager Guus Hiddink , for the EURO 2016.

Rio Ferdinand has gone and signed a one year deal with Queen Park Rangers. It was a free transfer after Manchester United released him after eleven years stay. He will be getting a weekly salary of 70,000 pounds, but he says it was not about money.You judge after all he 35 years old. He says he joined Queen Park Rangers, as it was Harry Redknapp who gave his first break at a football club , and it was at West Ham United. But to be honest he looks far to old now.
Arsenal went ahead a replaced their former right back Bacray Sagna wit another French footballer, he is Mathieu Debuchy, from Newcastle United. The price was 10 million pounds. The deal took a bit of time to materalize as the Newcastle United club said they would only release Mathieu Debuchy after they got a replacement for him. They have now gone and signed the Dutch right back from Hollands world cup team , Daryl jaramat. The big question we ask was it a good buy. The answer is yes , he is 28 years only, and Bacray Sagna at 32 years was not willing to take a weekly salary of 80,000 pounds, he wanted over 100,000 pounds weekly and a three year contract Arsenal do not give three year contracts to players over thirty years of age. And the most important point is Mathieu Debuchy really good. The answer was given to you all at the 2014 world cup in Brazil, mathieu Debuchy started all the world cups France played, infact Bacry Sagna did not play even a single game for France.
Over the years there have been many red cards shown to players, some were very needless to get. Like These. 1) The 1990 world cup final between Argentina and West Germany. In that match and time in the world rules only two substitutes were allowed with two players from Argentina already on red cards ,and the few injuries as well, no silly red card could be afforded by Argentina. But here Pedro Monzon and Dezotti both got red cards , it was the first time at a world cup a player was shown the red card, West Germany won by a contrevarsial penalty , the goal was scored by Andrea Brehme. 2) In the 1998 world cup Laurent Blanc was shown a red card so he missed out the final. 3) 1998 in the match between England and Argentina,The match was tied at 2-2, but David Beckham got a red card, for willfully bringing Diego Simone down with his legs. And yes England missed one of their penalties. It would have been different if David Beckham had stayed on the pitch. 4) The 2006 saw the illfamous head butting by the great footballer from France Headbutting marco Matrezzi, Both Zinedine Zidane and Marco Matrezzi were shown the red card 5) In the 1990 world cup in Italy in the match West Germany vs Holland. Both Frank Raijkard and Rudi Voller got the red card. The reason was it appears Rudi Voller said something hurtful to Frank Raijkard, Frank Raijkard retaliated by spitting at Rudi Voller, both got their marching orders.

Jose Mourinho the Chelsea manager has been shopping only in Spain this transfer window, as if there is no talent anywhere else in the world, Cesc Fabregas was from Barcelona, but the rest are from Atletico Madrid, Diego Costa, their goalkeeper back from loan at Atletico Madrid, Felipe Luis and now Joao Miranda another defender from Atletico Madrid. Oh yes Spanish clubs do need money , but to drain out a club of its players very funny inded. And by the way do not tell me Jose Mourinho will come again to Atletico Madrid for their Argentinean manager Diego Simone as well.
Now that Luis Suarez has gone and joined Barcelona, Liverpool got 75 million pounds for Luis Suarez, but because of his bite and ban Liverpool were poorer by 25 million pounds. But now they have the money who will they buy to fill shoes of Luis Suarez, as a player , he was to good goals regularely where ever he played, in fact he scored sacks of goals. Now Liverpool have gone and got Lazor Markovic for 20 million pounds, will he do the job for Liverpool? The footballer I would consider Liverpool to buy is the German Marcus Reus, from Borrusia Dortmund. Last season Mario Gotze angered his fans by leaving Borusia Dortmund and joining Bayern Munich. It was then Marcus Reus really did bloom and score very good goals for his club, he also missed the world cup to a injury.
The 28 year old Brazilian left back who was overlooked by Brazil for the 2014 world cup. He has now joined Chelsea for a sum of 20,twenty million pounds from Atletico Madrid in Spain. He will now wear the jersey number five, now that number is vacated by Michael Essien, he now comes in as a left back place, which was held by Ashley Cole for eight long years. Ashley Cole has now moved on , and is playing in Italy with A.S.Roma. Felipe Luis becomes the third player to join Chelsea, from Atletico Madrid. The other players are Diego Costa, Felipe Luis and Thiabaut Cortius.

Jose Mourinho the so called SPECIAL ONE says in his mind games that Cesc Fabregas had no desire what so ever to join Arsenal,. Well the truth is Arsenal had made a deal with Barcelona , when they sold Cesc Fabregas that Arsenal would have to get the first chance to rebuy him, if they rejected then only would he be sold by Barcelona to another club. But Arsenal wanted money to buy a classy player in Alexis Sanchez, and a defender in Mathieu Debuchy, and a goalkeeper as well.Arsenal midfied was already full. Now Chelsea went and brought him for roughly 30 million pounds. And by the way Mr Jose Mourinho Arsenal rarely buy a player who left Arsenal, the only players I can remember rejoining Arsenal are Sol Campbell and Mathieu Flamini free.
The ten footbaallers for the U.E.F.A footballer of the year only had one player who played in the E.P.L, but he to want be there next year. 1) Lionel Messi. 2) Cristiano Ronaldo. 3) Luis Suarez. 4) Arjen Robben. 5) Thomas Muller. 6) Angel Di Maria. 7) Manuel Neuer. 8) Philipp Lahm. 9) Diego Costa 10) James Rodriguez.
Liverpool and Brendon Rodgers are going to spend 100 million pounds this summer, and most of the new players came from Southampton a club that ended a season bellow them. Liverpool were known as a club that developed youngsters like Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard.Not now. They have become like Tottenham Hotspurs who blew up the 86 million pounds on footballers not worth it, like Paulinho and Eik Lamella. And Alexis Sanchez refused to be any part of the Luis Suarez transfer deal as he wanted to move to Arsenal, which he did. Liverpool have not yet replaced Luis Suarez, with a player of his class. And if they fail to do it Liverpool will be toothless, and Steven Gerrard is 34 years old in his twilight years. And Daniel Sturridge is a injury prone player, so who will score thirty goals for Liverpool?
Mrs Dolores Aviero in a new book published in Lisbon says this. By the way Mrs Dolores Aviero is the mother of the Portuguese footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo. Who plays his club football with the Spanish giants Real Madrid. Mrs Dolores Aviero says she wanted very badly to undergo a abortion, when she was carrying Cristiano Ronaldo, but thankfully the doctor would just not have anything to do with it. After all Portugal is a Catholic country, and their church does not allow abortions for any reasons. When Cristiano Ronaldo found out the truth, he told his mother that He holds the strings of the purse. But here the footballing world must thank the doctor for saving this football wizard Cristiano Ronaldo.. God alone knows with thousands of avbortions done each year, we might have lost a person who would have even say invented a vacacine for A.I.D.S. Or a inventor or Nobel lauret
The German captain Philipp Lahm has decided to call it a day from international football at thirty yearsof age. Now the famous jersey number 16 is up for grabs. Philipp Lahm has informed the coach Jocheim Low of his decission, it comes after 113 caps for Germany. But he has said he will be continueing his club football with Bayern Munich. His last game for Germany was against Argentina in the world cup final, and winning the cup for the first time for a unified Germany. Philipp Lahm was once heavily fined over 25,000Euros for speaking to the paper about the transfer policies of Bayern Munich. But was it right for Philipp Lahm to retire so early, I am sure he could have played till the Euro 2016. But his shoes will be hard to fill, my choice Manuel Neuer would be good one to succeed him.
The German midfielder Sami Khedira wants to snub both Arsenal as well as Chelsea, and it appears that Real Madrid want to sell him for a huge amount , so that they could get the Colombian James Rodriguez, who really dazzled the world at the world cup 2014 at Brazil. But let us see why the Arsenal deal fell through, Sami Khedira now gets a weekly salary of 50,000 pounds at Real Madrid, and he foolishly thought Arsenal would increase his weekly salary to a whooping 150,000 pounds a week, a increase by three times. He sure had a hope coming his way , as Arsenal do not pay theur players like Manchester City and helasea do. They are very strict where the players salary is concerned. It is rumured that he wants to go to France to either P.S.G or Monaco.
Rogerio Ceni the forty one year old goalkeeper is prolific goal scorer even though he is 41 years old now The goal numbber 118 came in a penalty , which helped the club score a 2-0 win. He is known as the clubs free kick specialist as well as scoring goals with his header in the corner kicks.

People are getting bored about the transfer Arsenal was to maketo replace their French right back Bacray Sagna, who joined Manchester City on a free transfer. The main reason why the transfer of Mathieu Debuchy did not go through was because Newcastle United wanted to find a replacement for him first before selling him to Arsenal. Now that Newcastle United have found their replacement in the Dutch right back Daryl Janamat, who along with Mathieu Debuchy played in the 2014 world cup and did well. We have to be patient where a transfer is concerned, after all it is not only money that counts, many poimts have to be sorted out. Now we here that Darryl Janamat has signed for Newcastle United, making it possible for Mathieu Debuchy to sign for Arsenal, he signed for Arsenal as he wanted to play in the Champion League, who does not want to play there?
Kevin kyle the former Scotland and Sunderland footballer who stood at 6 ft 3inches and was known for winning the ball in the air. And was getting a weekly salary of 10,000 pounds , has fallen on hard times. He is working on a ship and is getting a fortnight salary of 800 pounds, or weekly salary of 400 pounds. Which is peanuts compared to 10,000 pounds a week I must say. But the reason why he is in such a mess financially is , because he was a habitual gambler. Now he even cleans the toilets on the ship.
England after a terrible terrible world cup, now find them ln the twentyth place in the world ranking. This means Mexico, Costa Rica are well ahead of them , even U.S.A are ahead of them. England will have to pull up their socks, as there is a very good chance of them falling even further down sadly. Less foreign players should be allowed in the E.p.L. So young footballers can get their chance. By the way this is Englands worst ever ranking in the last eighteen years.
Tony Kroos has gone and joined Real Madrid for 24 million pounds, he has gone and signed a six year deal, he will be at real Madrid till 2020. Yes the price was his buy out clause 24 million pounds. Now Real Madrid also buying James Rodriguez the Colombian Golden Boot wonner with six glorious goals. Now with Sami Khedira not yet sold one of them will have to warm the bench. After all it is Real Madrid with lots of players already warming the bench.
The new manager of Manchester United Louis Van Gaal , has now decided to make a big clearing at Manchester united with ten players beeing shown the door. Those shown the door are Anderson, Luis Nani , Ashley Young, Maroune Felani, Javier Hermandez,, Tom Cleverly and so on. It looks like Louis Van Gaal wants to buy a entire team, but will they gell as a team so well suddenly.
The Argentinean world cup runner up team have now donated their entire prize money of 14.5 million pounds to a childrens cancer hospital in Beunis Aires. The Idea was originaally of Javier Mascherano and it was well supported by the entire team. The entire 14.5 million pounds was sent through the foundation of their team captain Lionel Messi. It is indeed very nice to know that these famous footballers have such big hearts
The German midfielder Mesut Ozil , who won the world cup with unified Germany fr the first time. As he is of Turkish decent and practising muslim, has now donated the bonus money he got for winning the world cup back in Brazil. The money totalling 240,000 pounds will go to projects in Brazil. Indeed very nice of you Mesut Ozil. This was money needed for 23 children who were waiting for money so that they could undergo a operations. It was 23 children for there were 23 players in the German team
There were two very lucky footballers at the world cup indeed. 1) Diego Costa. 2) david Luiz. If you look at the football played at the world cup 2014 in Brazil , these two footballers were utter, utter failures, but as luck would have it , both David Luiz and Diego Costa had made a deal before the world cup. David Luiz was sold from Chelsea to the French giants P.S.G. For a huge unthinkable amount of fifty million pounds. And Diego Costa transfer was well and trully started before the world cup started, between Chelsea and Atletico Madid. But the deal was finalized after the world cup for 32 million pounds. At the world cup Diego Costa never even had a shot at goal, leave alone on target. This is why Arsene Wenger the Arsenal manager waited for the end of the world cup to sign his players. But there is no guarantee that these costly players will shine for their clubs. Arsenal got the Russian Andrei Arshavin for 15 million pounds, with a weekly salary of 80,000 pounds , he was just a average player and was released free.

The German midfielder Toni Kroos has arrived in Spain on a holiday after winning the world cup, and as he is on his last year of contract at Bayern Munich, talks on a new contract failed to materalize, and the chairman of Bayern Munich Karl Heinze Rumenigge will not budge a inch, he wants the complete buy out clause of 25 million Euros or 20 million pounds, as thee is a fear they will loose him free next year. Real Madrid want to match Barcelona by buying a big name footballer as Barcelona got Luis Suarez. Now let us see what really does happen to Toni Kroos, who is young and Champion League, and Bundesliga champion as well as a world cup winner, it is intresting to know what his weekly salary at Real Madrid will be.
Ashley Cole, the former Arsenal, Chelsea and England defender who was once called the best left back in the world has left England and has joined A.S.Roma. Ashley Cole says that the English footballers do not want to leave England in their youth, and play for Clubs in Italy and Spain. They prefer the comfort and high salaries they demand and are paid, they would not get that much money playing in Europe. Actualy Ashley Cole becomes the ninth English player to play in Europe, after some of these Like David Platt, Lee Sharpe, Paul Gascoigne. Or most go to the U.S.A M.L.S after their English career is over example Jermaine Defoe. They must go when young to gain good experience, no wonder the English team does badly at a world cup.

The English club Nottinham Forest has signed the Spaniard Roger Reira , from Barcelona La Massia THE CASTLE. He was the captain of the under 19 Barcelona won the under 19 U.E.F.A cup and he was their captain as well as their defender.Roger Reira stands a towering 6ft2. But sadly he was considered surplus to requirements at Barcelona, great things were expected of him at he next stage for Barcelona,, but it very well could be money , Spain are on their knees economically, clubs are forced to sell their priced players to generate funds. Here Stuart Pearce at Nottingham Forest is the winner.
Antonio Conte theItalian manager of Juventus THE OLD LADY OF TURIN, has stepped down from the manageral post. He had taken Juventus to three successive Seria A titles. And to be honest he did a good job just lost seven matches in three years, got Juventus back into the Champion League. Antonio Conte had played a total of 400 games for Juventus , during his playing days at Juventus. But it is strongly rumoured that he would be taking up the Italian Managers job, left vecant after the world cup humilation. Was it the Italy job or he did not see eye ball to eyeball with the Juventus board , who want to sell Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba , both very big players indeed.
Diego Costa the Brazilian born footballer who decided, to take up Spanish citizenship and play for Spain in the 2014 world cup. Oh Boy it was a horror experience not a single shot on goal and only won a penalty, ended going out with Spain in the first round only. I am sure Diego Costa wished he stayed with Brazil , as Brazil played Holland for the bronze medal. But as Chelsea were very keen to get a proven striker to solve their goal scoring problems, in the last season Samuel Etoo, Demba Ba and Fernando Torres scored jointly 31 goals, while Diego Costa scored 35 goals for Atletico Madrid. Now Jose Mourinho will be a worried man as he may feel he has paid 32 million pounds for the wrong striker, after watching the World cup. And to make matters worse Diego Costa has signed a five year deal.
In the 2014 world cup final match between Argentina and Germany., played in Brazil. Here the Argentineans got chances and kept missing them. It was in the 57th minute that the German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer , who has reputation as very safe goalkeepr, with fantasic reflexes, and also playing as a sweeper. In the 57th minute he did his keeper come sweeper role and got very, very lucky indeed. And he clashed into the Argentinean striker Gonzalo Higuain inside the box. Now legally speaking in the F,I,F,A rules bringing the last man down should lead to a red card and a penalty, as it happened in the box. But to the surprise of ever one the Italian referee Nicola Rizzol saw it as Gonzalo Higuain brought down Manuel Neuer, and he gave Germany a free kick instead. Shame on F.I.F.A for appointing such bad referees in the world cup, the Japanese referee for the first game did not referee again in 2014world cup. And in the 2010 world cup in South Africa seven refeees were sent packing home.
The 2014 finals was between South American giants Argentina and Germany., It as their third clash at a final, 1986 saw Argentina win the world cup. in 1990 in Italy Argentina clashed with West Germany final, here West Germany were winners with the game ending with a Andre Brehme penalty winner.Two Argentineans got red cards for the first time in history of the world cup. In the 21st minute Gonzalo Higuain let his shot go wide. In the 46th minute Lionel Messi was inches wide of scoring and winning glory. In the 96th Minute chances also came and went , here Rodrigo Palacios sent the ball wide instead of scoring a goal. After Germany made two changes for Kramer and Miraslav Klose, in came Mario Gotze, both were involved in the goal a pass from Andre Shuree to Mario Gotze , who beat Sergio Romero, to score the winner. It was clear the Argentinean strikers let Argentina down, Gonzalo Higuain, Rodrigo Palacios, Sergio Aguero and Lionel Messi were all missing golden chances.
1) Germany made 105 more passes compared to Argentina in the first half of extra time 128 to 23 passes. 2) It was way back in 1994 that a Golden Ball winner , ended up in the winning side, the player in 1994 was Romario. 3) In 2002 was the last year in which the Golden Boot winner won the world cup. Here the footballer was Ronaldo. 4) In the 2014 world cup, Costa Rica conceeded only two goals, fantastic I must say.
1) Andre Shuree and Mario Gotze are the first to be born and t play for a unified Germany. 2) Really speaking this is Germanys first world cup. The other three world cup won ,, were won with West Germany. 3) For the first time in the world cup history , that two substitutes took part in scoring the winning goal, Andrea Shuree passed the ball to Mario Gotze to score the winning goal in the 113rd minute of extra time. 4) Mario Gotze was 22 years and 39 days . While Wolfgang Weber was 22 years 33 days in 1966. 5) Germany have played eleven matchs into extra time, Italy also have played eleven matches into extra time. 6) Three successive world cup won by European countries. 7) There were 171 goals scored in the2014 world cup , equalling the record of 171 goals set in the 1998 world cup in France. 8) Germany had to wait 24 long years to win their forth world cup. Brazil also had to wait 24 years to win their forth world cup from 1970 -1994. Italy also waited 24 years to win their forth world cup.1982-2006. But one question I ask is it correct, or is this Germanys first world cup , and the other three were won by West Germany? 9) It was also for the first time a European country won the world cup in the Americas.
Now will it be history repeating it self here , with footballers doing badly after leaving Liverpool. 1Michael Owen. 2)Ian Rush. 3) Robbie Fowler. 4)Emile Heskey. 5)Peter Crouch. 6)Peter beardsley. 7) Robbie Keane. 8)Andy Carrol. 9) Fernando Torres. 10) Craig Bellamy. 11 Voronin. So let us see how Luis Suarez does at Barcelona.
Monday, July 14, 2014
1) Gianlughi Buffon. 2) Andres Pirlo. 3) Samuel Etoo. 4) Dider Drogba. 5) Steven Gerrard. 6) Xavi Hernandez. 7) Xavi Alonso. 8) David Villa. 9) Iker Casillas. 10) Zalatan Ibrahimovic. 11)Diego Forlan. We thank these footballers for giving us many hours of football to watch and enjoy.
Germany are very guilty of breaking F.I.F.A rules, it is always only the team players who can lift the world cup, and touch it to, yes the staff ogf the winning team can touch it to. And the head of state. But here we are seen that the Germans have ignored this rule. IN the paper we are seeing Sami Khedira holding the trophy proudly. We also have seen Miraslav Klose two twin boys Noah and Luan holding the heavy trophy. The Daily Mail also shows the pop singer Rihana hoolding the world cup. The question is if one of them did drop the woorld cup and damage it badly , then who would pay for it.
It is reported in the Daily Mail that the Argentinean winger, who plays his club football with Real Madrid in Spain. Now it is reported that as Barcelona have gone and got Luis Suarez from Liverpool for a sum of 75 million pounds. Now Real Madrid want to get a equal scoring player, it was said that the Spanish giants wanted to get Radamel Falcao, but in the mean time the Colonmbian striker James Rodriguez has said he has a big desire to play for Real Madrid. But the price of james Rodriguez has sky rocketed after he won the golden boot, at the 2014 world cup. So to generate funds Angel Di Maria is to be sold to P.S.G for 50 million pounds, and Sami Khedira is to be sold to Arsenal. Angel Di Maria rejected Manchester United , for the simple reason they are not in the Champion League this year, so it will be P.S.G.
1) Iker Casillas. 2) Pepe. 3) Gerard Pique. 4) David Luiz. 5)Paulinho. 6) Willson Palacios. 7)Eden Hazard. 8)Antonio Valencia. 9) Fred. 10) Luis Suarez. 11) Diego Costa.
The Daily mail shows picture of the singer carrying the famous world cup and kissing it as well. Now the F.I.F.A rules very, very clearly states that only the world cup winning team players and their staff can touch it, and head of state as well. But photographs clearly show her with Lukas Podloski kissing it and carrying it. Now will F.I.F.A punish the German team and fine them heavily, if it is swept under the carpet then it will be repeated next time. And if the world cup is damaged who will pay the expenss.
1) Diego Costa was the biggest flop . not a single shot at goal, only won a penalty. 2) Steven Gerrard, was disapointing, he made two mistakes in his passing both went to Luis Suarez who scored two goals. 3) Gonzalo Higuain scored a lucky goal, as the ball fell at his feet.Missed a easy chance iin the finals. 4) Iker Casillas was a shadow of his old self. was replaced in the third match by Pepe Reina, they won ny 3 goals then. 5) Gerrard Pique was useless. 6 ) Hulk had ver 14 shots not one even on target.Was a substitute. 7) Fred The less of him the better was a shadow of his old self , with Neymar injured these two failed to score. 8) Sergio Aguero was not the striker we know at Manchester City. 9) Wayne Rooney just one goal that was not enough for England to progress. 10) Edison Cavani joined P.S/G for 56 million pounds , scored just one goal from the penalty.
These two Dutch footballers who can single handedly win a match on their day. It was Arjen Robben and Robin Van Persie who had a dispute about who would lead Holland at the world cup in Brazil. The Dutch coach Louis Van Gaal had to intervine and yes the armband was given to the striker Robin Van Persie. Now it is also disclosed that Louis Van Gaal , who is the new manager at Manchester United , for the next season has told Arjen Robben that the door is always open for Arjen Robben to walk in and join Manchester United. But it is said Arjen Robben has now flatly rejected the offer, saying he is very happy at Bayern Munich, after all Bayen Munich are in the Champion League as well. It was also earlier reported that Wayne Rooney to was umnhappy with Louis Van Gaal , who would make fellow Dutch footballer Robin Van Persie captain.
Barcelona were under the impression that they could unveil their new 75 million pound signing Luis Suarez, as barcelona had unveiled Neymar at the Nou Camp, where 90,000 ninety thousand fans came to welcome him. As Luis Suarez is banned from any footballing activities , Barcelona were thinking of unveiling Luis Suarez at another place. But F.I.F.A have informed Barcelona that it is not possible to say for example unveil Luis Suarez at a scool sports ground. They said the ban is for all football for four months, so now he can be unveiled only after the four months say the end of october.

The award was given out to the three main awards at the end of the world cup final. 1) Golden Glove. Best goalkeeper went to Manuel Neuer, of Germany. 2) The golden Ball. For player of the tournament went to Lionel Messi. Of Argentina. 3) The Silver Ball went to Thomas Muller. Of Germany. 3) The Bronze Ball went to Arjen Robben. Of Holland. 4) The Golden Boot went to james Rodriguez. Of Colombia. 5) The silver Boot went to Thomas Muller. 6) The Bronze boot went to Neymar. 7) The young player ofwent to Paul Pogba of France. Now jokingly the GOLDEN TOOTH award should go to Luis Suarez of Uruguay.
Germany became the first European country ever to win a world cup which was played in either South America or the U.S.A Germany won the 2014 world cup final against Argentina. In tense but a match which was indeed played in a very good sporting spirit The match had to go into extra time , the final goal , the winner came in the 112 minute of the match, and it was scored by Mario Gotze who came on as a substitute in the last few minutes of the game. So the match ended in a 1-0 win for the very strong German team But this was a history repeating itself all over again, in 1990 World cup match held in Italy, West Germany then defeated Argentina by a contreversial penalty.And in that hot match two Argentineans were shown the red card.And it was for the first time that a player was sent out in a world cup final.
The team of the world cup 2014, does not have a single English, French , Spaniard or a Italian footballer. 1) Manuel Neuer .Goalkeeper. 2) DEFENDERS. Philip Lahm, Gincaro Gonsalves, Mat Hummels and Daley Blind. 3) Midfielders J.Mascherano, T. Kroos, J. Rodriguez, A.Robben. 4) STRIKERS. L. Messi. T.Muller.
The Holland and Mexico semi final match which ended 0-0 was played the usual extra time , of thirty minutes fifteen minutes in each half. During the penalty time , it was reprted by the Dutch coach Louis Van Gaal that two of the Dutch players refused to take their penalties, and to make matters worse for the Dutch Robin Van Persie was replaced in the last few minutes of extra time as he was exhausted. Now this is where Louis Van Gaal made a mistake he told a inexperinced Ron Vlaar to take the first penalty, instead of giving it to Arjen Robben or Wesley Sneijder. Now the Mexican goalkeeper was Sergio Romero, who once played under Louis Van Gaal at A.Z Alkamar in Holland. It was Louis Van Gaal taught him to save penalties. Now Ron Vlaar took the penalty, Sergio Romero saved it with his outstreched hands.Now he was so busy celebrating he did not see the ball roll backwards after it bounced on the ground, it rolled backwards and stopped on the goal line, it was a milimeter from going in. Now according to F.I.F.A rules, for the goal to be declared as a goal the ball must cross entirely over the goal line.
Yes Liverpool have plenty of money after selling Luis Suarez for 75, seventy five million, Brenden Rodgers says that all that money will go back to buy players. Now who will it be? It looks more likely that the Colombian striker Radamel Falcao will be joining Liverpool to replace the goal scoring machine of Luis Suarez.It is only rumoured that the French striker Karim Benzema, who plays his club football at Real Madrid, and is on his last year of his contract there. But Arsene Wenger has also been very keen on Karim Benzema. Just to give you a idea of Liverpool performence with Luis Suarez and Without Luis Suarez. Liverpool played 110 games with Luis Suarez abd 18 without him.53 wins with Suarez 11 wins without him. They scored 218 goals with Luis Suarez and 29 goals without Luis Suarez. So with out Luis Suarez in the team Liverppool will be absolutely toothless..
The daily mirror says that Liverpool paid Ajax two million pounds from the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona. Ajax will now invest this two million pounds in their famous youth academy that produced stars like Edwin Vander Sar, Dennis Bergkamp, Daley Blind , Marc Overmars , Edgar Davids and Clarence Seedorf. The youth Academy is well looked after and develop stars each year,not like the Manchester United one, which has all dried up, not like 1992stars
This is a list of some very famous football wizards who have thrilled us for years. 1) EdisonArantes Do Nascimanto, or Pele. He got this name when a child he could not pronounce the name of the Vasco DaGama goalkeeper Bile, he pronounced it as PELE and it has stuck.His first football was a sock filled with paper. He then worked as a shoe shine boy at Santos, the rest is history.And the only footballer to win three world cups . 2)Rivaldo. Born in the notorious streets of Brazil, being under nurished he lost his hair , teethand weight. But nothing could stop this talented footballer frombecoming real big star, he played till he was 41 years old , his is fantastic. 3) Lionel Messi, The darling of millions over the world.At eleven years he was digonised with Hormone deficency a growth problem, he could have been a cripple for life. But in came a mighty F.C.Barcelona , stepped in and payed for his treatment. Barcelona gave us this most talented player. It ia said Lionel Messi had his first contract made on a tissue paper, Barcelona were not sure how long he would play. BT THANK YOU BARCELONA FOR GIVING US MESSI TO SEE in INDIA. 4) DIEGO Maradona, one of seven siblings born in utter poverty, lived in one roomHe is also known to be thrown out of 1994world cup for drugs. but no amount of adversity could dampen is spirit or talent. He won the world cup single handedly wecan say THE HAND OF GOD.He is with Pele considered footballer of the century. 5)Ronaldo De Assis. OR Ronoldhino. Came from very poor background, struggled a lot even to survive. But he refused to give up hope, described as one of the greatest strikers of all time, ask David Seamen and England of hs wonder goal in 2002 world cup. A three time World player of the year.It is said while at Barcelona he had to train at night to avoid the many fans.He failed to give up, and all know what happened in the end. 6) Cristiano Ronaldo. He started life from very poor home ,but ended up as being the costliest player sold for 80,eighty million pounds from Manchester United to Real Madrid. Winner of two world footballer of the year. And also footballer of the decade. 7) Carlos Tevez If it was not for his love, passion and skill at football, he to would have ended up being entangled in the web of drugs and violence, rthat was his neighbourhood he grew up in.He openly talks of his struggle from rags to riches and and the drug world he left for the lovely game of football.

Arjen Robben the Dutch Footballer is a shameless habitual diver, and there is no denying it, as Arjen Robben himself admitted it, and hated what people said about him for diving. In the match between Brazil and Holland for the third place match in the World cup 2014. , early on Thiago Silva brought Robben down, but video replay clearly shows that the tackle was made outside the box, but The DIVER Arjen Robben dived into the box to win a penalty, Shame on him and the whole Dutch team to encourage it. The Algerian referee was a blind bat, he failed to give Brazil two penalties for very clear hand balls in the dee. The Algerian referee showed a yellow card to Oscar for diving, when slow replay shows clearly Oscar was brought down in a tackle. Same old story of very bad refereeing in the world cup. In the 2010 world cup F.I.F.A sent home seven referees and linesmen.
The Spanish giants Barcelona have finally got their man, in Luis Suarez, for 75 million pounds and he has five year contract. His weekly salary will be 200,000 pounds a week. He will be the third highest paid footballer at Barcelona after Lionel Messi, and Andres Iniesta. But Barcelona have put a clause in his contract , and it is a good one Liverpool failed to put one on his when he joined Liverpool from Ajax. The Clause at Barcelona says this. That if Luis Suarez ever does bite another player he will loose three million pounds that year.Quite a huge amount of money I must say.
As I said earlier that Liverpool had made a mistake in selling Luis Suarez for only 75, million pounds. As Gareth Bale was sold for 86 million pounds. It has now come out in the Spanish press that Real Madrid were also keen on the buy of Luis Suarez, from Liverpool. But Real Madrid wthdrew their intrest for Luis Suarez all together, after F.IF.A gave him a four month ban from all forms of football. His price plunged sharply from 100 million pounds to the buy out clause of 75 million pounds.Liverpool refused to budge from that figure when negotiating with Spanish giants Barcelona.
Both the Dutch coach Louis Van Gaal and Arjen Robben say there is no need for the third place match at all , and is a waste of time. But oh no not at all it is very important, besides the sale of tickets. It could be very , very important. I will take your memory back to the 1998 world cup held in France. France and Brazil played in the finals, and Holland and Croatia, a break up of Yugoslavia, playing in a world cup for the very first time, rached the third place spot , they played Holland . There the Croatian Davor Sukar scored the winner , kicking a low sharp ball past Edwin Van Der Sar. That last one goal of Davor Sukar, was his sixth in that world cup and yes he won the GOLDEN BOOT. Had the third spot not been there he would not have scored goal number six to win it.
Actually the deal for Luis Suarez , between Liverpool and Barcelona was going on for a year roughly, it could not be made over night.After the world cup. Liverpool tried indeed very hard to hold on th their troublsome striker, but now he made it clear he did not want to stay in Liverpool or for the matter England, after all he scored the two goals that knocked out England from the world cup, in the group stages.Fans wanted him deported, so he left. Now let us see whether Liverpool got the correct amount for him. Liverpool refuded to budge from the buyout clause which Luis Suarez had, which was 75 million pounds. Liverpool tried to get Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona as cash and player deal , but Alexis Sanchez said he would move only to Arsenal, so Arsenal paid roughly 35 million pounds for him. Now we must ask Liverpool, if Gareth Bale is worth 86 million pounds then Luis Suarez should easily be valued at over 100 million pounds. A big Liverpool mistake. In fact Barcelona were selling jersey number 9 before the deal was done. But Barcelona used the 30 million got for Cesc Fabregas, plus the 35 million pounds for Alexis Sanchez, the amount then did not look so huge.
Barcelona had great players to wear the Jersey number 9.They are as follows. 1) Ronaldo. 2) Patrick Kluivert. 3) Zalatan Ibrahimovic. 4) Henrick larson. 5) Samuel Etoo. 6) Alexis Sanchez. 7) Luis Suarez.
Jose Mourinho the Chelsea manager is famous for boasting and to think other clubs , players and managers are loosers. He has not won a trophy for two years and if he does not win a trophy this year he should resign and catch a plane to Portugal. He always picks on Arsenal and Arsene Wenger for failing to win a champion league. Can he and Chelsea go one year or 48 , forty eight matches without a loss , nort lkely as Alex Ferguson could not do it with mighty Manchester United. Could he sell his players and stil have a new stadium during recession, not likely. He boats of a Champion League trophy, so what about it. Nottingham Forest have won two champion leagues in 1979/ 1980.They are now in the second or thid division.
Friday, July 11, 2014
These Former Manchester United players played a total of 2097 games together and won a total of eighty trophies, here I think it would be more honest to say eighty medals , as they won the same trophy . 1) Ryan Giggs. He played 963 games and scored 34 goals. 2) Nemanja Vidic . He played 300 games and scored 15 goals. 3) Rio Ferdinand. He played 455 games and scored 16 goals. 4) Patrice Evra. He played 379 games and scored 15 goals. Now all three defenders have left Manchester United, and Ryan Giggs has retired at the age of forty years. Will Louis Van Gaal replace such high class defenders. After all these players can not be replaced, as they come once in a while , are icons.
Over the years the World Cup , and the GOLDEN BALL is all given to strikers as they do score goals and entertain the crowd. But strangely the 2014 world cup is all about Goalkeepers who really did shine.Like. 1) Neylor Navas . Costa Rica. 2) David Ospina. Colombia. 3) Manuel Neur. Germany. 4) Sergio Romero.Argentina. 5) Gulmeirro Okaccha. Mexico. The Golden Ball is given to the best player in a world cup. The only time in World cup history for a goalkeeper to win the Golden Ball was Oliver Kahn of Germany.
The Uruguayan striker who played for Liverpool in the E.P.L was sold to Barcelona for a huge 75 , seventy five million pounds, his buy out clause that is. Now with FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY in force, Barcelona had to pay spot cash for him, so Barcelona was forced to sell Cesc Fabregas for 30, thirty million pounds to Chelsea, and the Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez was sold to Arsenal for 32, thirty two million pounds.Some say it was 35 , thirty five million pounds. Luis Suarez has now signed a five year deal at Barcelona.But he will not be allowed to be unveiled as a player at Barcelonas famous Nou Camp, as he is banned by F.I.F.A from entering any stadium for a period of four months , after he bit the Italian Giorgio Chelleni.And he was expelled from the world cup. Luis Suarez had his medical done in Uruguay , under Barcelona doctors. How big will Luis Suarez apsense be felt at Liverpool, with Steven Gerrard reaching 35 years of age , and in his twilight years. Now Liverpool have said they will not refund the jerseys sold of Luis Suarez to the fans, fans sure will be angry.
As Luis Suarez is on the verge of being sold by Liverpool to Barcelona for a huge 75 million pounds. Luis Suarez had no desire wht so ever to stay in England , as it was him who knocked out England from the 2014 world cup all together. And the crazy English football fans wanted him deported from England. So he did the wise thing and asked for a tansfer. But there is a clause which any club buys him must pay Ajax 6.5 percent of the sale amount, now the Dutch club will get 4.3 million pounds from his sale. Ajax are going to reinvest the 4.3 million straight into the Ajax youth team , to develop youngstes. A very wise move indeed.

People are having doubts if the Luis Suarez move to Barcelona is a good one. Yes he is indeed a very talented footballer and a proven lethal goal scorer as well. But will he gel with Neymar and Lionel Messi.? Let me take you back to the ninetys. Barcelona had Romario, Hristo Stoichkov and Michael Ladrup. Later they had the three RS from Brazil Ronaldo, Rivaldo and Ronoldhino . Bot these set of players played very well for Barcelona then, why not these three players?
BRAZIL. GERMANY. GOALS . 1 7. Shits on Target. 18. 14. Fouls. 11. 14. Corners. 7. 5. OFFSIDES. 3. 0. POSSESSION. 52.% 48% Yellow Cards. 1. 0. RED CARDS 0. 0. SAVES . 3. 7. Looking at this we can not say Manuel Neuer was a spectator on the pich.
1) Pele. Brazil . 12 goals. 158, 1962,1966, 1970. 2)Just Fontaine.France. 13 Goals. 1958. 3)Gerd Muller. West Germany. 14 Goals. 1970, 1974. 4) Ronaldo. Brazil. 15. Goals. 1998, 2002, 2006. 5) Miraslav Klose. Germany. 16. Goals. 2002, 2006, 2010,2014.
Was it ethically correct on the part of the German world cup players, to take a pledge at half time not to humilate the Brazil team who were down to a score of 5-0 at that time. Here sportsmanship was all thrown out by the Germans. People and their fans have spent a whole month staying at a hotel and travelling to each stadium , in various cities. They should have gone ahead and scored as many goals as possible, with no mercies asked or no mercies given either. Now will they be so lenient with Argentina in the final? Honestly F.I.F.A must look into this game very, very closely it looked fixed.But will F.I.F.A have the spine to punish germany ? Shame on Germany it looks so funny the way the goals went in. Mind you they are playing at a world cup Semi Final watched by Billions. People spent money travelling by air, staying in hotels and travelling in cabs, if the match was fixed then F.I.F.A must throw these countries out of the world cup.
Both Arsenal and Chelsea have lost out on buying the Croatian striker Mario manduzic from Bayern Munich. Mario Manduzic has gone and joined Atletico Madrid in Spain for 18 million pounds. He has gone to replace the Brazilian born Digo Costa who has joined Chelsea for 32 million pounds. Jose Mourinho wanted a proven striker , so he got Diego Costa for 32 million pounds, but he was a big flop at the world cup. Masrio Manduzic wanted to move on from Bayern Munich , as the German giants got in the Polish striker Robert Lewdanski.
Brazil played as individual stars, and depended to much on Neymar.But when he got injured their bubble did burst. Brazil did not have players like Romario, Ronaldo, Rivaldo or Ronoldhino. With Thiago Silva suspended for this match , it was not a time to experiment by leaving out Danny Alves. The new defenders Maicon and Dante were playing so badly as if in a street game , only Marcelo delivered little.David Luiz was like a chicken without a head , running in all directions and getting beaten often. The first twenty minutes of any match are important , many playes are nervous, and can make errors in free kicks and facing corners. The first five goals came in the first half hour. When the second goal was scored so quickly there should have been changes Ramires should have come much earlier. Neither the Brazilian midfield did anything , Fernandhino , Luis Gustavo, Oscar stranded on the wide right, the creating came from flanks and not the midfield, the tradinoalBrazilian middle. While where strikers were concerned ,it was a sleepy Fred , and Hulk who had over twelve shots at goal before this match and failing to score a single goal. Let us be honest here Brazil have been facing a drought of strikers like Ronaldo, Rivaldo and Romario. And in the midfield they lacked genuine midfielders like Ronoldhino and Juninho for far to long.
