It is funny these two defenders at Manchester United Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic , were solid defenders during their time at Manchester United, but after leaving Manchester United , they are now a shadow of the great defenders they were. Both of them are just terrible Ferdinand and Vidic have conceeded a total of 18 goals in ten games . Nemanja Vidic has also given away two penalties in four games , this leaves the Inter Milan manager in despair. While Rio Ferdinand at Queen Park Rangers is just as bad , absolute school boy mistakes made on the pitch. Both should hang their boots as soon as possible.
the Spanish giants Real madrid are working hard to get the ninteen year old winger from Liverpool , he is called Raheem Sterling. Liverpool are now working hard on a new contract to tie him up at Liverpool. So they have decided to tempt him with a juicy offer of a weekly salary of 100,000 pounds, atpresent he is getting a weekly salary of 30,000 pounds atLiverpool, in other words his weekly salary will go up three times. The big fear Liverpool rightly have is that at this huge weekly salary he may not be the player he is today. But one thing is clear the players Real Madrid , want Real Madrid get, for example , Luka Modric, Gareth Bale Zinedine Zidane, Kaka , James Rodriguez are examples.
Wayne Rooney the Manchester United and England striker is now in two record books. He is third in the all time most goal scored in the E.p.l. That is below Alan shearer and Andy Cole.In the top ten goal scorers. But in the last E.P.L match he was shown a straight eed card for kicking Stewart Downing, by the way that was his booking number 81,eightyone. So now he becomes the tenth most booked player in the E.P.L with 81 bookings.

Last week Sir Alex Ferguson had spoken with Cristiano Ronaldo in Madrid. Now we must remember that when Cristiano Ronaldo joined Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon, he was just a boy then, and Sir Alex Ferguson was a fatherly figure to him, and Manchester United fans knew very well that Alex Ferguson would make a big difference in convincing him to change his club, from Real Madrid to Manchester United next year. But to spend 140 million pounds plus bonuses and other things will cross 200 million pounds, for a player who is thirty years old is far to risky for my liking.
The former Captain of Holland Ruud Gullit has said that Louis Van Gaal the manager of Manchester United , has just simplly wasted the funds he had at Manchester United. He said a manager who managed Ajax, Barcelona, Bayern Munich , should have replaced the strong defenders who left last summer. He has got only attackers and midfielders, and he also says that Luke Shaw was not worth the 31 million pounds spent by him, just imagine that then why spend so much in the first place.
Lionel Messi the Argentinean striker who plays his club football with the Spanish giants Barcelona. He made is debut for Barcelona in 2004, as a substitute for seventeen minutes, his big chance was given by coach Franck Raijkard. In these ten years Lionel Messi has scored sacks of goals for Barcelona. He has actually scored 359 goals for Barcelona and 42 goals for Argentina,. This makes a total of 401 goals for both club and country. People say that he is not as good as Diego Maradona, just because he has won the world cup in 1986.But that is not true at all.I still say Lionel Messi is better. Now we must remember that Lionel Messi as boy suffered from very bad hormone defeciency, and only Barcelona were willing to gamble by spending big on his treatment, that is why he is so very much grateful to Barcelona. It is said that the first contract of Lionel Messi was made on a napkin, as Barcelona hought they may have to tear it up soon.So these four hundred goals are very special indeed to us football fans, even me in India.
The Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been feeling the pinch of the absanse of a proven goalscoring striker like Luis Suarez. He thought mario Bolotelli would indeed be a better signing then Loic Remy, he rejected Loi Remy by saying he had failed a medical checkup, but the trooth is , he thought Mario Bolotelli would score the goals Liverpool needed.But it bacfired very badly on him. He is now wanting to sign the unsettled Argentinean striker Gonzalo Higuain, from Napoli, for a huge 31.2 million pounds And to make matters worse Gonzalo Higuain has failed to score a single goal this season for Napoli. .

There is no doubt about it, that the sale of Luis Suarez from Liverpool to the Spanish giants Barcelona , for a very huge amount of seventy five million pounds , was gong to hurt Liverpool really badly. So in six matches they have lost 3 drew1 lost 2.
In the summer transfer window the Argentinean footballer who plays his club football with Spanish giants Barcelona, and as he had a dificult year at barcelona, the fans were not at all happy with his performance, and as Barcelona then failed to win the Spanish La Liga title in 2013/2014. It became so bad for him that at one stage he even asked Cesc Fabregas about Arsenal , as he was strongly thinking of moving from Barcelona to Arsenal. On heating this the Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho asked Roman Abrahimovic , to buy Lionel Messi from Barcelona for 118 million punds or 150 million Euros. Arsenal were nt going to spend that crazy money or such high weekly wages on Lionel Messi. But Lionel Messi signed a new contract with Barcelona , and he stays in Spain.

The German giants Bayern Munich are very keen to buy the German midfielder Mesut Ozil in the january transfer window, they are really ken , they may offer big money for Mesut . THE METRO said that Bayern Munich say that Mesut Ozil is unhappy at Arsenal, as he has not been playing in the position he likes to play. The Germans had once said that they were willing to offer thirtytwo million pounds for Mesut Ozil. But I personally feel Arsenal will not sell him in the january transfer window.As he has a contract on.
Cristiano Ronaldo could wel be the costliest footballer ever to be transfered in history. It is said that with the bonuses, royalty rights and wages and other things he could cost Manchester United a very huge 200 million pounds. But the good point in favour of Manchester United is that Adidas have been their sponsorer with a deal of 750 million pounds for five years.
Liverpool are indeed working very hard to get the French striker Karim Benzema from the Spanish giants Real Madrid. Thereason s that Livferpool knew signings both of them Mario Bolotelli and Ricky Lambert have failed to imprese Liverpool fans or the club in any way. In fact Brendan Rodgers has already thrown in the towel, saying Liverpool do not have a chance of winning the E.P.L this year. He has said Liverpool are broken and do miss the combination of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, who last year scored over fifty goals. But the Karim Benzema deal may not be so easy as P.S.G to arekeen on Karim Benzema.

Real madrid president Florentino Perez will have the last chance to cash in on the star at Real Madrid, with his age reaching thirty years in februry 2015.And his frequent injuries on the increase as well. The price expected of Cristiano Ronaldo is a huge 140 million pounds, and he will also demand a salary of atotal of twenty million pounds , so just imagine it will cost Manchester United 160 million pounds. At the same time P.S.G, Chelsea and Manchester City have already said he is far to costly for them in all ways.That will leave the door open for Manchester United to spend real big in football history. But Louis Van Gaal says the heart wants Cristiano Ronaldo but the mind is saying Real Madrid will not sell him.
The German mdfielder Toni Kroos who was going to join Manchester United before the world cup 2014 in Brazil. But he took a big U turn from joining Manchester United. He has now told a Pundit that he took this sharp turn in view, because when he wanted to join Manchester United under the management of David Moyes, but then Manchester United sacked David Moyes after a ten months as the coach of Manchester United. David Moyes was then replaced as manager by the Dutch manager Louis Van Gaal. And that was enough to decide to take a U turn and then he joined Real Madrid , who snapped him up for twenty million pounds and a six year contract as well.
It looks clear now that Manchester United will concentrate on buying a noted defender in the January transfer market, a good one to fill the shoes of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic. The person chosen s the thirty year old Miranda , who plays his club football in Spain and with Atletico Madrid. After spending fortyseven million on Luke Shaw and Marcus Rojo,the are not fit to do the job. Atletico Madrid have always said that rhey want twentyfour million pounds, so Manchester United are willing to include Juan Mata in the Miranda deal, that is according to THE EXPRESS.
The coach of Barcelona Luis Enrique has decided to be tough on the famous Baarcelona players , he has now decided to fine players like Lionel Messi and even Neymar or Luis Suarez want be spared of afine of 300 pounds for being late by a minute and it will multiply to 600 and 900 and so on. This was actually the method introduced by the Dutch Coach Louis Van Gaal of Ajax in Holland. It now appears Louis Van Gaal has made a new rule at Manchester United , and that is the footballers must surender their mobiles in the night, as some are staying late at night with yth mobile , it affects their play the next day. When Toni Kroos joined Real Madrid from Bayern Munich, he noticed that the players at real madrid were always coming late, something not done at Bayern Munich.Shows how discipline is falling .
The greatest goal miss ever was the one goal missed by Philip Hofmann who was playing for Karlerstain VS United Berlin. He was less then a yard with a open goal begging for him. But he touched the ball with the top of his toe, and then when that happens the ball is bound to go high up in the air, as it did here above the net it did go. Philip Hofmann is bound to be haunted of this miss for long time to come, nd he will have sleeples nights as well.
This year the number of clubs that are being investigated for breachin the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULE , has increased in number, last year only Manchester City and P.S.G were pulled up and fined heavily. This year the number of clubs being investigated are A.S.Roma, Liverpool, Monaco, Inter Milanand P.S.G. When will these clubs learn?
There is no doubt what so ever the Uruguyan striker Luis Suarez who was banned for four months, after the match in the 2014 world cup in Brazil. As he had gone and bit the Italian footballer Giorgios Chelenni, during the match between Uruguay and Italy. But in these four months Luis Suarez has not lost his skill as a striker i any sense. As he is allowed to play with the Barcelona B team, and not the Barcelona team in the Spanish La Liga. In the match in the Barcelona B team he scored two goals, a big warning for more goals to come in the Barcelona team after he ends his four month ban on 23/10/2014.

According to the yearly accounts of the Arsenal football club, it shows the Arsenal owner Stan Kronke, or better known as silent Stan, did indeed take three millionpounds from the Arsenal funds last year. Now the Arsenal fans are a bit angry with him over the whole thing. As he had said he would not take any money from Arsenal in Divident forms. What has angred the Arsenal fans is that the prices of tickets for the Arsenal fans had indeed gone up rather steeply. But the big question is whether Stan Kronke was justified in doing so, after all he is the owner of the famous Arsenal club, and he invested 42.5 million pounds to buy Mesut Ozil f, for example.
The Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby , has come back from a long injury lay of. You may be surprised to know that this has been his injury number forty , he has always been a injury prone player. But this shows you the great faith Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal club do have in their players. Tomas Rosicky for example was out for eighteen months with a knee injury, but Arsenal did not ditch him , but now give him a yearly new contract.
The Barcelona and spanish defender Gerrard Pique , who once played for Manchester United in the year 2004, and was got by sir Alex Ferguson,is now wanted again by Manchester United. As you see in the summer transfer window Manchester United spent a whooping 153 million pounds on buying footballers, but they completely forgot to strengthen their defence , after their three main dfenders were sold. Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic left but no defender not even one player of the same class was got in the summer. They are now trying to get Gerrard Pique from Barcelona, as he is not seeing eyeball to eyeball with the Barcelona manager Louis Enrique. The big question is will he leave Spain for England again? But the Manchester United fans should not get to excited about this deal of Gerrard Pique rejoining Manchester United from Barcelona , as the Colombian singer Shakira is very much against Gerrard Pique joining manchester United in England.
In the Capital ne cup played between Liverpool and Midlesbrough, which ended in a 2-2 goal each after extra time. The match then went into penalties to get a result. And you will find it hard to believe there were a total of thirty penalties taken by the two clubs, usually it is all setled in five penalties each. Here even the two goalkeepers took their penalties. The game endd in a score of 14 penalties to Liverpool and 13 goals for Midlesbrough. For Liverpool Sterling missed his penalty.And for Midlesbrough Adomach and Bamford missed their penalties. You can say it was indeed heart breaking for the Midlesbrough fans, it was a case of so near and yet so far. By the way this is a new record where penalties are concerned.
Manchester United players angrly wanted to know why Louis Van Gaal , substituted Angel Di Maria with Juan Mata when the score had stood at 3-3. With Angel Di Maria scoring a super goal, even called the goal of the season. It was after the substution of juan Mata for Angel Di Maria that Liecster City crawled back to a 5-3 win. Now this should not happen at such a big club, players questioning the decision of the manager. Manchester United players would never have dared to ask such a question to Alex Ferguson. Neither would the Arsenal players question Arsene Wenger or the Chelsea players question Jose Morinho. This shows clearly that Louis Van Gaal may not be able to control the dressing room as well.Bad news for Manchester United fans.The club could drop more precious points.
All these football stars made their football debut at the League cup, and went on to do great things for their club and country. 1 ) David Beckham. AT 17.Years. 2) Paul Scholes. At 19. Years. 3) Cesc Fabregas. At. 16. Years. 4) Ashley Cole. At. 18. Years. 5) Danny Welbeck. At 17. Years 6)Jermaine Defoe. At 17. Years. 7)Robbie Fowler. At. 18. Years. 8)John Terry. At. 17. Years. 9) Wojciech Szcesny. At. 19. Years.
Let us compare the first five games of 2013 under David Moyes and 2014 under Louis Van Gaal. David Moyes 5 games played 2 wins. 1 Loss. 2 Draw . G.F. 7 G.A 6 . POINTS 7. Louis Van Gaal. 5 Games. 1 Win. 2 LOSS. 2 Draw. G.F.(. G.A 8. Points 5.. So the numbers prove it, and to expect Manchester United to come third this season is expecting to much.
As Manchester United are really doing and playing very badly this season, in fact it is worse year then when David Moyes was manager. In plain desperation they were trying to buy their former star Cristiano Ronaldo, from Spanish giants Real Madrid. Now Cristiano Ronaldo signed a new contract last yearso he will be costly, some say it will be 120 million pounds.But Manchester United ae hoping te price falls to sixty million pounds, and his weekly salary would be 300,000 pounds. But now Manchester United have decided to drop the idea of buying him, as it would unsettle the othr players like Wayne Roney, Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao, and Robin Van Persie after all these players are on a very good wekly salary.
Liverpool are now being investigated for bbreaking the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RUULES. they could easily loose seven million pounds which they could have got for reaching the champion league for 2014/2015. And they will be closely looked into their big spending on footballers for the past two years. The punishment if found guilty will be anounced later on.

The top German executive of F.I.F.A has now openly said that the 2022 world cup will not be held in Qatar during the months of June and july,. As it is impossible for footballers as well as spectators to play and sit at tha temperature which can even reach fifty degrees in the summer. And he asked who will take the responsibility of the people who suffer from heat related illnesses.? Every school boy knows that Qatar is a very hot country in June, only that stupid man Sepp Blatter chose it., saying it is possible to hold a world cup in Qatar in 2022. The country has a population of a million people, who will use these stadiums which are made with aircooling and what not? Just plain white elephants. People can not drink beer in the stadiums so who will want to go there and get roasted No Beer companies will be allowed to put their advertisments either.Tyhese companies aways bring millions of pounds due to sponsorships. And neither banks be allowed to put up advertisements either, as their banks do not allow you to take interest, according to Islamic law. Where will the money cme from. It was given to Qatar after their gas money bribed F.I.F.A.
According to a former Manchester United player Philip Neville , who says that Manchester United will be forced to sell Juan Mata, the Spaniard who joined manchester United from Chelsea for a huge sum of 37.1 million pounds. As Manchester Uniteds defence is just plain shambolic , and both Marco Rojo and Luke Shaw are not the same class as the three departed defenders Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra, Nemanja Vidic. Louis Van Gaal is saying Luke Shaw is not good enough to play for Manchester United, then may I ask why he spent 31 million pounds for him? The club will have to spend another hundred million pounds on real good players to ever win a trophy again. So Juan Mata will be sold to generate more funds for Manchester United., Marco
The Real Madrid stadium the vey old and famous obne, named after one of the clubs former president Santiago Bernabeu, is going to get that name changed . The Dubai family will now bail out Real Madrid , who are a solid 600 million pounds in debt, just imagine that. The name changing will come at a price for the proud Real Madrid fans. The Spanish giants will get a sum of 500 million Euros or 290 million pounds , for a period of twenty years. It is very similar to what happened at Manchester City , they had their name changed to THE ETIHAD STADIUM , after paying million pounds to Manchester City. The funiest thing here was That The ETIHAD AIRWAYS never made a profit from the year it started in 2002.So where did the millions come from? Or will Barcelona follow Real Madrid and be called QATAR AIRWAY STADIUM?
The Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger is now keeping a close eye on this Cameroon striker, who is only twentyone years oldand is playing in France for Olympique Lyon, his name is Clinton NJie . He has already played his first match for Cameroon, and scored his goal against the Congo. He is called the new Samuel Etoo, it is a load of preasure on those young shoulders of Clinton NJie.You can say expecting to much from him to soon. He has two years of his contract remaining, and his buy out clause is very small indeed it is 800,000 pounds, peanuts I would say. And Arsene Wenger is knon to spot young talent , and give them chances to make it big. He is also fond of young French footballers, not just because he is from France, the real reason is they are cheaper to buy and their weekly salary is very much less to the young Englih footballers who are costly and want huge weekly salaries.
after manchester United lost their latest E.p.l against promoted side Liecster City with a goal score of5-3. But Mthe Manchester City did not waste much time in taunting their neighbours Manchester United. They did it wile flying a banner from a aeroplane that said this. UNITED WE FALL _IN THE CINEMAS COMING SOON.
During the E.P.L match played between Manchester City and Chelsea.Played on 21/9/2014Pablo Zabelata the Argentinean defender who now plays his club football for Manchester City nowadays. He had been shown a first yellow card by referee Mike Dean, which was rather harsh one . But the second yellow card which Pablo Zabelatta got for a very bad tackle on Diego Costa. He then got a Red card. Now Diego Costa the Brazilian born striker , who has decided to play for Spain instead. Diego Costa then held both his hands on the throat of Pablo Zabelatta,after the tackle. Here Mile Dean is very guilty of failing to apply the F.I.F.A rules here, he should have shown Diego Costa a straight red card fothat act. The F.I.F.A rules clearly state players can not touch another player . They can only help a player by helping him to get up. Blind as a bat is Mike Dean, and Diego Costa is a luky man, or was it because he was playing for Chelsea that he got away with it.

There is no doubt about it that manchester United threw away their E.P.l match vs Liechester City, after all they were leading in this match with a very comfortable lead with the score of 3-0 goals . But the match ended with a score that stunned both clubs and their many fans as well. The match ended in a 5-3 loss for Manchester United. But let us ask who is responsible for this , and the answer is the Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal, is squarely to blame a he failed to sign a defender of quality and class , of say players like Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand or Patrice Evra. Now without replacing these three players and to get Marco Rojo for sixteen million pounds is not good enough, he is not even worth that much money. And to expect a third spot in the E.P.L is expecting far to much., Ne
As Manchester United spent a record of 153 million pounds in this summer on signing players. Now this has really backfired on the Manchester United club. For now the Italian club A.s.Roma are also sking huge amount of money for their Dutch player Kevin Strootman, now Kevin Strootman is indeed very keen to join up with Louis Van Gaal at Manchester United, he Kevin Strootman missed out the 2014 world cup in Brazil due to a injury. But one thing is clear this is a inflated price, just as they paid sixteen million pounds for Roja when he was not worth that much.
A TEERLE WINNER Jonathan Greening, who was a proud Manchester United player, and was a treeble winner with Manchester United in the glory year of Manchester United of 1998/1999, under Sir Alex Ferguson. He has plaed for Fulham as well and won the Europea League cup as well in the year 2000. That year Fulham defeated the Spanish club Atletico Madrid. Now KJonathan Greening has signed up for Tadcaster Albion.Have you heard of this club by now?
the little Argentinean striker Lionel Messi has now completed fourteen years at Barcelona, he played his first match on 17/9.2000. It was mthe Dutch manager Franck Raijkard who gave his break for fifteen minutes as a substitute then. During these years at Barcelona he has gone from strength to strength, and entertained us all very well with hid great skill. He has won six Spanish La Liga Titles. He has won six Super Cups. He has won the F.I.F.A world cup twice. He has won the U.E.F.A Super Cup twice. He has won the BALLON d OR four times in a row, no footballer has won it four times or even four times in a row. For Barcelona he has played 460 matches.And also scored 367 goals for Barcelona.
Brendan Rodgers has at last realized that Liverpool will not have a chance to win the E.P.L this year, and they will continue to be in the wildrness , where they have been since 1990, and the Ian Rush period. Now what is more hurting is that the sale of Luis Suarez to the Spanish giants Barcelona for seventy five million pounds, is what has been the big miss this year, all those goals and skills are sadly missed. And Daniel Sturridge has been a prone injury player, for example he has bee ijured eleven times in twenty matches. And yes Steven Gerrard is in his twilight years no doubt, Daniel
So desperate are Manchester United to get a goal scoring striker, even after spending a huge record for a English club in the summer , of 153 million pounds . And on 21/9/2014 in their E.p.L match verses Leicter City. they Manchester United club were beaten by a hhuge embaressing score line of 5-3 defeat. Mind you the Foxes were a promoted side this year only. The Old Trafford club are now willing to spend 120 million pounds on Cristiano Ronaldo, a player who will be thirty years in februry 2015. My question is it a wise decission to spend so much for a player who is thirty years old. Injuries will also be more , as it is he is getting injured to often now a days. After spending 120 million pounds how many more years will he play, jhe may very well retire in a year or two, then what will happen? To make things more difficult for Louis Van Gaal ,is that Manchester United have told him he must finish third in the E.P.L this year nothing less will do.
The Colombian striker Radamel Falcao Garcia, who has now gone and joined Manchester United on a season long loan , from the french club Monaco. Now as Radamel Falcao was very seriously injured, it was his knee in the month of january, and as he did not recover in time for the 2014 world cup in Brazil. He has now joined Manchester United on a season long loan. The clause put by Manchester united, is that if at during his one year loan time at the club he really does get injured on the knee again, then what happens, yes he had undergone a very rigorous medical checkup. Then he will be sent back o Monaco.
The nephew of Lionel Messi,named Augustine, son of Lionel Messi brother Rodrigo, who is just six years old now has signed up for the Catalonyan club called F.c.B ESCOLA.It is a club owned by mighty Barcelona, it is only for boys aged six years to eleven years of age. It was here that boys who are on the verge of playing for the spanish giants Barcelona first wore their famous striped jersey. Footballers like Sergi Samper,Marti Riverolni started their football career. I am sure we will be seeing the skills of Lionel Messi , now by his little nephew Augistine.. After all barcelona will only take these kids only if they have real skill and talent in them., from here they will join the LA MASIA THE CASTLE.

The wage bill of Arsenal stands at 166.3 million pounds. While Chelsea had a wage bill of 176 million pounds. The year could show a difference that is 2014/2015. The main reason being Arsenal have new players like Alexis Sanches, danny Welbeck, Calum Chambers an David Ospina. But Chelsea have either sold or released players like Franck Lampard, Samuel Etoo, Fernando Torres, and Dider Drogba has a less salary now compared to the first time.Chelsea had a wage bill of 176 million pounds when these footballers were there. But the leaders in wages is manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal is third in the E.P.l. Arsenal made a record income of 300 million pounds for the first time ever, Samuel
Jose Mourinho so rightly says that if the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULE has to work then U.E.F.A shou;ld not fine clubs, as fining clubs even if it is in millions it makes no difference at all to them. This year U.E.F.A punished Manchester City, P.S.G and Zenith Petersburgh , for breaking the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES. Manchester City was fined fifty million pounds. But U.E.F.A says that if they balance their books next year then the fine will be less , and not fifty million pounds.Then what is the purpose of the fine inthe first place after all, it will plain peanuts to Manchester City owners. So Mourinho says that U.E.F.A should deduct pointd like ten points. So it makes them difficult to reach the champion league that year. Is Michael Platini listening by any chance.
Arsene Wenger has said he would not hesitate at all to spend fifty million Euros or forty two million pounds on making a signing of Mesut Ozil , all over again. He says that he can really see when a player really has talent in him or for the matter another young talent. He may not have scored a goal so far after a few months, but he is active and provides the ball to the players. Here we must always remember one point in any sport. That players form will dip now and then, but one thing is very clear class is a permanent thing. Athletes , cricketers, basketball players to have had a dip in form many a time. Before the world cup the German coach still took Mesut Ozil to the 2014 world cup in Brazil, when his form had dipped, but like Wenger he knew very well that he had class. Now the German giants Bayern Munich are willing to pay 32 million pounds for him, if he was worthless I do not think Pep Guardiola would show any interest in him, leave alone paying 32 million pounds for him.
Arsenal yearly report says that the club has a record 173 million pounds in the bank.And you can be sure that Arsene QWenger will not spend all that money. In the summer he got Mathieu Debuchy, Danny welbeck, David Ospina, Calum Chambers and Alexis Sanchez. But he did fail to get a holding midfielder though. As Wenger is a shroud man, it is reported in THE METRO that he is trying to get the former Chelsea man Lassana Diara , who is now a free agent. Arsenal never do mad spending, it is not in their books to buy trophies like Manchester City and Manchester United. For example Manchester United spent a total of 153 million pounds this summer on transfers just imagine that will you.

Jose Mourinho the Chelsea coach has now flatly denied that Chelsea are very keen to buy Cistiano Ronaldo, as he is far to costly, it is a waste of money. We must remember that Cristiano Ronaldo had signed a new contract just last year, and as he is in very good form scoring plenty of goals. Chelsea would have to pay through their noses for him. And his weekly salary of 501,000 pounds is really crazy, gred has got the better of him here. And by the way P.S.G are also not at all keen to sign Cristiano Ronaldo, so this leaves Manchester United the only club that want him, at this price. It really shows how desperate the club is to finish third in the E.P.L.
The 2020 EURO CUP will be held in a total of fourteen countries, just imagine that. It is the brain wave of U.E.F.A president, the former French footballer Michael Platini. In a sense it will give all these countries a chance to hold a EURO CUP.And also to make money from toursts as well as selling tickets. The big advantage is that countries are willing to increase the number of the seasts at their stadiums. But these clubs stadiums that were say , that had added more seats to their famous stadiums will benifit these clubs in the near futire. The final of the EURO 2020 will be played at the famous Wembley stadium, so will some semifinals as well.
In the French ligue the Bastia striker Brandao , who had head butted the Brazilian defender Thiago Silva,in a match vs P.S.S. Brandao after headbutting Thiago Silva in doing the headbutt , he also fractured the nose of Thiago Silva. For this unsporting behaviour and also for harming Thiago Silva , he has now got a six month ban from football. People ask why Luis Suarez got only four months as ban for biting Giorgios Chellieni, at the 2014 world cup in Brazil. Here he Brandao gets six months mainly as he headbutted Thiago Silva but also caused a fracture. Brandao was with his lawyer during the trial.

Isco the Spanish footballer is now wanted by both Arsenal and Liverpool. Actually both Arsenal and Liverpool were very keen to buy another Spanish footballer Pedro Rodriguez , who plays his club football with Spanish giants Barcelona. But Pedro Rodriguez is now very worried as he greatly fears that when Luis Suarez does return to the first team , after he serves his long four month ban, then the chances of Pedro Rodriguez getting any real playing time at Barcelona , will really be cut down drastically. So Pedro Rodriguez was willing to hear from both Liverpool as well as Arsenal. Now things could really be complicated here as the Italian giants Juventus, also called THE OLD LADY OF TURIN , has shown interest in Pedro Rodriguez. Juventus may be keen to buy Pedro rodriguez as they may loose their Chilean star Arturo Vidal to Manchester united. So Arsenal and Liverpool have now shifted their attention to buy Isco, from Real Madrid, Isco joined Real Madrid from Malaga for 24 million pounds.He thought he would get regular starting place at Real Madrid, but even with the departure of Angel Di Maria to Manchester United, he Isco is on the bench with Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez taking the place. But now Manchester City manager Manuel Peligrini who was at Malaga also wants him now.
The French world cup winner Zinedine Zidane, who played for Real Madrid once, has been reported for coaching the Real Madrid B.Team without a badge or corect licence. Real Madrid have broken rule 104 ,Coaching a team without the correct badges or licence. The punishment is six month ban. But Real Madrid have protested the ban saying Zinedine Zidane is the second coach for the Real Madrid B Team, and Sergi Sanchez is the real coach of the B.Team at Real Madrid. But the referre association have shown snaps as evidence.
Barcelona have already found their replacement for Sergi Busquets , it is a very young and talented player, now playing in Barcelonas B TEAM. He is called Sergi Samper, so well pleased are Barcelona with their youngster , that they have given Sergi Samper a five year contract till 2019. This is to keep him from moving on to Arsenal, who always have a eye for these Barcelona kidwonders,
Many Arsenal fans will say that Arsene Wenger best signing for Arsenal was Theirry Henry. But Arsenal will say that his best signing for Arsenal in his seventeen years at the Arsenal club, was really the Cameroon player Lauren. Lauren was a holding midfielder but also did the defender job in the matches. But we must know that he missed out on some famous footballers over the years. For example Petr Cech and Yaya Toure both were refused work permits. Cristiano Ronaldo joined Manchester United , but please note Ronaldo became famous as a footballer at manchester United. He also did not get Dider Drogba from Marseille, we know Arsene Wenger likes to buy players from France as they are cheaper, and less demanding in wages then the English footballer, who are all overpayed, so English football suffer as they are not good.
The talented world cup winner, Mesut Ozil , sadly is not the only costly footballer to fail in England , there have been some great footballers to do very well in Italy and Spain , but super flops in England. 1) Juan Sebastin Veron. Argentina. Manchester United . 2) Hernon Crespo. Argentina . Chelsea. 3) Andrei Shevchenko. Ukraine. Chelsea. 4) Mesut Ozil. Germany Arsenal. 5) Gervinho. Ivory Coast Arsenal I often do wonder is it he pace in England that does not soot these good footballers.
It looks more and more like the move by Luis Nani to sporting Lisbon on a season long loan, being the great difference at Manchester United. As he has done very well at Sporting Lisbon not only did he score a goal in Portugal , he also did score in this years Champion league as well. Even though the match ended in a tame draw , with a score of 1-1.
Xavi Hernandez the Barcelona and Spain midfielder , who is known fr his accurate passing , has now played in his 142 Champion League match for Barcelona. He now has equalled the previous record of the most games played in a champion league , which was 142 games, previously held by another Spaniard Raul Gonzalves of Real Madrid. Now only the other player who can have any chance of breaking the record is Iker Casillas of Real Madrid, who has now played 141 matches so far in the Champion League.
In the Champion League history, many players and many clubs have taken part yearly. But till today Real Madrid are the only club to have completed scoring a total of a thousand goals, in theiir champion league matches. But who has scored that magical goal number thousand for Real Madrid. It was scored by karim Benzema. And it was a beautiful goal to watch.

The Argentinean footballer Jonas Gutirreas who has been playing for many years for the English club Newcastle United . But during the match between Arsenal and Newcastle, there was a collision between Bacray sagna and Jonas Gutirreas, as Bacray Sagna sujested that he should undergo a scan. The scan sadly showed he has testicle cancer. We all football fans all over the world pray that he does recover soon. So had they not clashed that very important scan would not have been done.
The Spanish coach of Bayern Munich has clearly said none of his players wanted to leave the German giants to join Manchester United in the summer. Even though Louis Van Gaal tried very hard to get them. Players like Thomas Muller, Toni Kroos, Basitain Schwenstiger, and others did not want to leave Bayern Munich at all even for that big money offered.
According to the German paper THE BILD , the striker from Real Madrid is wanting to make a move back to the English football. With Both Manchester United and Manchester City keen on him, he will cost a lot , mind you he has just signed a new long term contract . He is also asking for a very huge weekly salary , which is riddiculous he wants a 30,000 Euros a week or to put it in pounds a huge 501,000 pounds as weekly salary. The truth is that Ronaldo is disgusted with Real Madrid and their selling big players to buy other players. For example to buy Ronaldo both Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben were sold, to buy Gareth Bale both Gonzalo Higuain and Mesut Ozil were sold.To buy James Rodriguez they sold Angel Di Maria.

The tiny Bulgarian football club that is just thirteen years old, and in the top level for the last thre years in which they came first in Bulgaria, their costliest player is costing just 1.5 million pounds, just imagine this Mario Bolotelli costs sixteen million pounds. In the Champion League Liverpool took the lead through a goal from Mario Bolotelli. But the Bulgarian club equaled through Daniel abola Paulos , who went straight ahead to celebrate with a disabled spectator, how very nice of him. But in the injury time it was left to this Cometh the hour, cometh the man , the saviour Steven Gerrard with a penalty deep into injury time. Ludogorets have arrived all should be careful now.
Cristiano Ronaldo the former Manchester United and now Real Madrid star, is indeed very angry with the Colombian winger James Rodriguez. The reason for the anger is Cristiano Ronaldo and Angel Di Maria were very good friends during their Real Madrid days. Ronaldo blames James Rodriguez for getting Angel Di Maria being sold to Manchester United.They have many tiffs on the pitch now a days. It is also reported that Manchester United are trying to use Angel Di Maria , to convince Cristiano Ronaldo to jin Manchesrer United in the next summer transfer window.
the Italian club after buying Ashley Cole from Chelsea in the summer, are now keen for another defender , he is the Liverpool defender Glen Johnson , and A.S.Roma are also willing to pay three million pounds for him. It is indeed funny Glen Johnson was blamed for the blunder in the loss in the E.p.L , fans wanted him out. But now both A.S.Roma and Juventus are keen for him , just imagine if he was bad why would these two Italian giants want him?
The Bulgarian football club Lugogorets is a small Bulgarian club , just 13, thirteen years old. They play the mighty Liverpool club from England. Liverpol make their first appearence after a five year gap in the champion league. The costliest player in the Bulgarian club , was got for a small sum of 1.5 million pounds.Just imagine that and Mario Bolotelli price. The main reason for this club to be playing in the champion league is because of the heroics of their goalkeeper Cosmin Moti, great things are expected from Cosmin Moti in this match . And if this small Bulgarian club can even get a point , the Bulgarian people will party long and late into the night. The city has a population of 32,000 people only. They were promoted tothe top level three years ago in 2011.Since then they have won three titles , so you can expect a big surprise in the champion league match against Liverpool.
Now that both defenders Mathieu Debuchy is a long time injury case out for two months.Mach Monreal the Spaniard is injured as well. So who will take the defence postion for Arsenal? The answer is the 19 year old Spaniard Hector Bellarin will play in the champion league against Borussia Dortmund. But do we know anything of him? Well he is Spanish player who was trained at THE LA MASIA THE CASTLE.The youth academy of Barcelona, that produced players like Lionel Messi, Xavi Hernandez, Cesc Fabregas and Andres Iniesta. He joined Arsenal in the year 2011. He is very good athlete in fact he has broken the 100 meter dash record beating even Theo Walcott at it.He loves to go forward and be part of the game . You can be sure he will not be a pushover at the Champion league, and he has played for Arsenal before.
It is now reported that Cristiano Ronaldo is indeed unhappy at Real Madrid, and is longing to make a move from the spanish giants Real Madrid.So will he leave that club for Manchester United a club neither in the Champion League or in Europa League. It is reported that Manchester United will try very hard to use Angel Di Maria, who is a very good friend of Cristiano Ronaldo , during his Real Madrid career to make he move possible. But what the Manchester United fans must remember is that Cristiano Ronaldo , last year signed a new five year contract to be at Real Madrid, so he will be indeed very, very costly and sixty million pounds is not the correctt price. As he is asking a weekly salary of 500,000 pounds , no club can afford it , even P.S.G have said he is far to costly. Manchester United have paid 153 million for six players or so , so next year they will have to tighten their spendings. And Cristiano Ronaldo is the reighning Ballon d Or winner , that makes him even more costly, and he is twentynine years old as well. We must also take into consideration Real Madrid make a great deal of money selling the number 7 jersey of Ronaldo mind you.
The former German goalkeeper Tim Wiese , who is 32 years old and has his contract in football with a German club. Has now decided to make a swap from football to serious wrestling in W.W.E. He has now gone for serious body building , and as he was a footballer for many years and disciplined sportsman. He has developed his body and put on weight , he is now 150 pounds in weight. After all wrestling is a very popular sport in both the U.S.A and Canada as well. Tim Wiese was released by the German club Hoffenhiem in january 2014. The reason given was he has put on far to much muscle , and may not be quick or graceful between the psts.

the big question on everybodys mind is will Louis Van Gaal be forced to bench Robin Van Persie , and be forced to let Radamel Falcao Garcia and wayne Rooney start in the very big games. Or will the Dutch manager support his country man ? Let us all be honest Robin Van Persie has not been playing well, as he did in the last season he had at Arsenal. He is injured more now a days, it is also rumoured that Robin Van pesie is to undergo a operatin on his troublsome knee But Radamel falcao may not be the same player he was at F.C.Porto, and Atletico Madrid.He was out for nine months with a very serious knee injury and went under the knife as well.. Will the pace of the E.P.L be to much for him
all summer arsenal were after the Sporting Lisbon holding midfielder Willam carvalho.But it never did work out in the end. But now things are appearing to be in Arsenals favour. As it is reported that the president of Sporting Lisbon Mr Bruno de Carvalho is now in England , and the signing of Willianm Carvalho to join Arsenal is very much on the cards . The whole summer there was a lot of wraggling about the buy out clause for William Carvalho, which ias standing at 31 million pounds, but let us be honest Sporting Lisbon ant cash very badly to buy other players, so the buy out clause could fall to 24 million pounds.
the Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard is son to become the highest paid Chelsea player, the talks are going on very well. Chelsea are very keen to hold on to him , as P.S.G and other clubs are keen to get him . He is about to get a huge weekly salary of 200,000 pounds, it will make him the highest paid footballer at Chelsea. If he signs it , as it will be a five year contract for Eden Hazard at Chelsea , it will cost the club fifty million pounds to keep him.
Wayne rooney has now scored 175 goals in the E.P.L , he now equals Theirry Henry , who also scored 175 goals. Wayne Rooney has pplayed 377 games to reach that figure. But Teirry Henry took only 258 games to reach that 175 goals. Wayne Rooney is third on the table of goal scorers. Andy Cole is second with 188 goals. Alan Shearer is top goal scorer in the E.p.L with 260 goals.
Diego Costa the Brazilian born Spaniard , who now is playing in the E.p.L with Chelsea, even though he was a super flop at the 2014 world cup in Brazil. But with Chelsea and the new passmaster Cesc Fabregas , he has become the second player in the E.P.L to score a goal in all his ffirst four games. The only other footballer to do it is Micki Quinn.
the Spaniard pedro Rodriguez , who plays his club football with Spanish giants Barcelona . Has big wories over his club career as he has not yet played a full ninety minutes this season for Barcelona, and taking into consideration that Luis Suarez is serving a four month ban, which means he will be coming to play on 23/10/2014 for a big game for Barcelona. It is caklled THE EL CLASICO THE CLASIC t, the match between Real Madrid and Barcelona. So Pedro Rodriguez is very keen to listen to both Arsenal and Liverpool as well, for a january transfer . Twice before Arsene Wenger came knocking on the Barcelona door asking for Pedro Rodriguez. And as Arsenal have been in the champion league for seventeen years in a row, but Liverpool are also in the champion league this year. So let us see where he will go?
In the past E.P.L history we have seen great players playing as partners you could say , or providers.So please name the best according to you. 1) Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas. 2) David Beckham and Ruud Van Nistelrooy. 3) Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres. 4) Theirry Henry and Robert Pires. 5) David Silva and Sergio Aguero.
It is getting more and more clear that Cristiano Ronaldo , is not going to be staying long at Real Madrid. The reason is that Real Madrid are forced to sell very good and talented footballers is to generate funds.This has angred Cristiano Ronaldo a great deal. For example when they wanted Ronaldo for 80,eighty million pounds , they sold Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben. When they wanted Gareth Bale , they sold Mesut Ozil. And to get James Rodriguez they had to sell Angel Di Maria and Xavi Alonso. Now the big question is where will he go now? Chelsea, and Jose Mourinho have said no , as Ronaldo wants a weekly salary of 500,000pounds a week.And Chelsea big spending days are over according to Jose Mourinho. Now that leaves only Manchester United and Manchester City who are keen on him. But Manchester United have spent a record 153 million pounds, so they will not be willing to match his weekly salary. It will be Manchester City alone. Te problem started with the sale of Gonzalo Higuain to Napoli, then the others top players were sold as well.

The former Liverpool ,manager Rafael Benitez has revealed in THE METRO that it was Fernando Torres who convinced the young Reham Sterling to join Liverpool when he was a young boy. Rafael Benitez says iiit is possible Steven Gerard was also there. Fernando Torres was at the height of his goal scoring heights at that time, Reham sterling was there with his mother and was shown all around Liverpool and their training ground. It was enough to convince Reham Srerling that Liverpool was the club was for him, and his mother agreed. And so he has shown for Liverpool in the past few years.
We all know that the La Massia skill is drilled well to the players, so Ces Fabregas was no exeption, he did well at Arsenal. And at Chelsea he is doing it better he has now gone and set up a new record in the E.P.L. He becomes the first footballer to asist in goals being scored in four consecutive games ever in the E.p.L.
Saturday, September 13, 2014
The Real madrid footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has now demanded a weekly salary of a worlds record staggering amount. The price he is asking from Manchester United and Chelsea , is a weekly salary of 500,000 pounds a week. I doubt whether either of these two clubs will be willing to buy him in the next season, when he wants to leave the spanish giants Real madrid. Manchester United owners have told Louis Van Gaal that he will not be allowed to make any new buyings , as he spent 153 million pounds on players this summer. And Chelsea have manager Jose Mourinho , has clearly said Chelsea big spending days are well and trully over.
Friday, September 12, 2014
Sir Alex Ferguson says that the transfer window money spending on players is just jawdropping. Players are being bought at crazy prices. Manchester United have gone and spent a huge reord amount on the transfer window, the figure was a scarry 153 million pounds on six players . The prices were all inflated prices, so will their weekly prices be. For example Manchester United paid thirty million pounds more for Angel Di Maria.
Gone are the glory days of manchester United, we have to ask If Manchester United is dead and buried now. With a foreign owners who only want to make money. With foreign players in larger number , with only Wayne Rooney, James Wilson michael Carrick in the team who are English. And to expect Louis Van Gaal to finish third this year in the E.P.L is really funny to me.
when Manchester United now have radamel Falcao Garcia, Robin Van Prsie and wayne Rooney as strikers. So threre was a need to sell a striker , but not two of them.So Javier Hernandez was given on a years long loan to the Spanish giants Real madrid and Danny Welbeck was sold to Arsenal on the last day for sixteen million pounds. Louis Van Gaal still has a spare striker in James Wilson to use this season. Yes he is good and very talented no doubt, he scored two goals against Hull City on his debut. But I would like to remind you of a Arsenal player called Jermaine Pennant , who scored a hat trick for Arsenal in his debut match and great things were really expected from him, but very sadly indeed he failed to live up to expectations, today he is playing in the third dicvision team. So this is football they can flop as well,but flops can do well in another club, under a new manager.
The German player Mario Gotze , known for scoring the only winning goal scored against Argentina n the 2014 world cup in Brazil. Has now come forward to say he is willing to play his football abroad. England could well be his destination. He started his career with Borrusia Dortmund , before joining Bayern Munich. The Arsenal manager twice tried to buy him from Borrusia Dortmund , but failed, but now will the german be willing to join Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, after all it has a few German players playing for Arsenal now.
You can just imagine the pressure now at Liverpool, and their big hopes of winning the E.P.L looks already in taters before game number five is played. They sold their first choice striker Luis Suarez for a huge seventy five million pounds to Barcelona. And between Luis Suarez and Daniel sturridge a total of fifty five goals wre scored .It want be happening this year. As Daniel Sturridge is injured again. And by the way it will be the eleventh time Daniel Sturridge is injured in twenty months, far deal of playing time lost I would say, and he could miss more games, and do not expect Mario Bolotelli to score thirty goals.
Chelsea scouting teams have targeted young talents all over the world, but they are fascinated by this Barcelona eleven year old prodigy , who is at presnt at THE LAS MASIA THE CASTLE, Barcelona famous youth Academy in Spain. As he is only eleven years old , F.I.F.A rules very clearly state , if clubs take young boys at their accademy at this tender age, the club must also take the childrens parents as well to the club. As the child could suffer big homesickness and other problems as well. But who is this young football wizard ? He is called Xavier Simon , and is eleven years old and plays as a midfielder. Chelsea are so desperate to get him , that they are willing to pay Barcelona a very huge compensation, and are also willing to take the parents to England. Will Barcelona sell him? At Eleven I do not think so, he may be sold when he reaches eighteen years or so.Time will tell.
There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Louis Van Gaal will regret selling danny Welbeck to Arsenal, and it will be soon. He said he sold Danny Welbeck to Arsenal as he would be of no use to them.How can you make such a statement, Louis Van Gaal only believes in buying players at inflated prices ,like Luke Shaw, Andre Herrera. Okay now let us compare the goals scored by the two players for both club and country, shall we , both players Danny Welbeck and Robin Van Persie, both stared their football careers as wingers you see and then became strikers. at 23years of age. 1) Danny Welbeck has scored 37 club goals and 10 goals for England. 20 Robin Van Persie has scored 41 club goals and only 2 goals for Holland. So you readers kindly be the judge here. Danny Welbeck could be a case like Danniel Sturridge and Lukukku , who were changed and feared players after changing clubs. Let us ask Louis Van Gaal a question is he good for Manchester United ? Or the next david Moyes
Arsene Wenger the Arsenal manager left for Rome for a charity match, he also met the Pope ,for those who do not know it Arsene Wenger is a catholic. Arsenal fans were angery that he had left England on the final day of the transfer. But this is 2014 , he was intouch with Arsenal on the cell. It was only after Manchester United got Radamel Falcao Garcia on loan, that Manchester United were forced to sell Danny Welbeck. But why was Danny Welbeck sold to Arsenal their Arch rival in the E.P.L. It was because Arsenal sold Robin Van Persie to Manchester United for 24 million pounds.One good deed deserves another we may say here. Arsene Wenger says he met someone in Rome, Italy who made the transfer of Danny Welbeck possible after all, but he has not mentioned who the person was, it coukd be Danny Welbecks agent , I do not know for sure as yet.

Joe Lewis the owner of Tottenham Hotspurs has now had enough and is selling the football club Tottenham Hotspurs. Even though he is asking a very heavy price for it, it is one Billion pounds, massive amount we may say . But he wants to make a profit , and if it is sold for a Billion pounds he will then make a clear profit of twenty two million pounds.
it was just a few years ago that the Manchester United fans were crying and saying both Manchester City and Chelsea , were doing crazy spending , and oh yes buying a lot of trophies. Now let us ask these same Manchester United fans the same question , is not Manchester United buying trophies after all, that is if they get one at all. After all they have spent 153 million pounds all in one summer transfer itself, the highest by any club in the E.P.L. Let see what they say to that. The board have told Louis Van Gaal that nothing less then the third position will do for manchester United. They have got a hope coming their way.They have not scored any goals.
manchester United are keen to resign Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, they have fixed the price at 55 million pouns, this is five million pounds less then what Chelsea are offering. They have promised a weekly salary of 300,000 pounds. But Ronaldo is now getting 290,000 pounds a week. And his agent Jorge Mendes is moving fast to get him to England, either to Chelsea or manchester United.
The Dutch manager of Manchester United Louis Van Gaal has been clearly told by the board , that he will have to finish this sason in the top three clubs in the E.P.L., below that will not do at all. He must take Manchester United back into the Champion League next year, Europa League will not do at all for the board. But they have also put a condition for Manchester United , and that is no substantil money will come to him in janiuary transfer window for sure. He will have to do the best with the squad he has now. Pretty scary times lie ahead for Manchester United as a whole, as you see they have not yet scored three goals in this E.P.L season , just think of it.
It appears Cristiano Ronaldo is not happy at Real Madrid these days, he is upset at the transfers made by the Spanish club, first Mesut Ozil was sold then Xavi Alonso. He is nearing thirty years of age, so a change would be nice for him. And Chelsea are a good team and very strong one to. The plus point in favour of Chelsea here is that both Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho have the same agent Mr Jorge Mendez, one of the best agents in the world. But Real Madrid have told both Chelsea and Manchester United to keep their hands out of Cristiano Ronaldo. Cristiano Ronaldo was angry and had heated words with the Real Madrid board over the sale of Angel Di Maria to Manchester United.
The Brazilian right back Dani Alves who plays his club football with Spanish giants Barcelona, and his contract expires in a years time, so he is free to talk to clubs in january. Dani Alves joined Barcelona from Sevilla , and at 31 years of age he is finding it hard to find a starting place at Barcelona, as younger players have come in.And Louis Enrique has no desire to give Dani Alves a new contract. Now he is in demand both Manchester United and Liverpool want to buy him free. He is even wanted in Italy with Inter Milan and Juventus who are keen to get him on a free transfer.
During the summer transfer window , the German holding midfielder Sami Khedira, who plays his club football with Real Madrid in Spain. He wanted to leave the Spanish giants Real Madrid and join Arsenal, his fellow German footballers were very keen that he joined up with Arsenal, and honestly Arsenal were very keen to buy him. But during the whole transfer window , and many talks what really kept the two clubs apart were his huge weekly salary, it was 150,000 pounds a week, and he is getting only 50,000 pounds as weekly salary with Real Madrid, he wanted to treble his salary , something Arsenal would never agree to, and he would be the highest paid player at Arsenal. But the talks failed, and now we are hearing that Sami Khedira has now gone under the knife and will be out for six to eight weeks. Arsenal really escaped this bi problem.
Only three clubs in the E.P.L were really able to make a profit in this summer transfer window. The three clubs are as below. 1)Chelsea. 2) Southampton. 3) Tottenham Hotspurs.

As Manchester City were fined a huge fifty million pounds for failing to follow THE FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULE. But now who will use these fifty million pounds. U.E.F.A have said that the fifty million pounds which Manchester City gave U.E.F.A will now be used in a good way. QAll the clubs playing in the Champion League will have that huge fine divided between them . A lovely Bonus for Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal , I would say. But U.E.F.A have said that the fine could fall to twenty million pounds, if Manchester City follow the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES now .
It is reported iin JUST TALK , that Glen Johnson who is on a weekly salary of 110,000 pounds a week, one of the highest paid players at Liverpool. But he is blamed for a few major mistakes recently and fans want to se the back of him. Now the JUST TALK says as Glen Johnson has not signed a new contract at Liverpool,or is there any sign of a new contract coming soon from Liverpool . Now Juventus have come forward to sin him in january transfer window. Mind you Juventus have signed Patrice Evra from Manchester United.
It is reported in THE TUTTO SPORT that Italian giants Juventus, also called THE OLD LADY OF TURIN. Are indeed very keen to buy the very talented midfielder Juan Mata from Manchester United in the January transfer window.And the Italians are willing to pay twenty four million pounds for him. Manchester United paid 37.1 million pounds for him to Chelsea. It is indeed sad that a player who did so well at both Chelsea and Manchester United, is now shown the door at Manchester United. He is considered as a surplus player, can you imagine that. Here it is certain he will shine for Juventus.
Barcelona can easily buy the new Neymar from the Brazilan football club called Santos. Barcelona already have the prefenetial rights on the young talented footballer, who is dubbed the NEW NEYMAR. As he is only young boy , the Spanish giants Barcelonsa will buy him out from Santos in a years time or so.
Liverpool have sold fifty million pounds of jerseys with Mario Bolotellis name on it . At the same time . At the same time the Colombiian player James Rodrigues, who was also voted as the cutest face among all the footballers at the 2014 world cup in Brazil. Was sold by Monaco to Real Madrid for 63 million pounds. So Real Madrid sold a total of 308,320 jerseys in a hour. Just imagine that . Twenty percent of the amount spent on James Rodriguez was got back by selling jerseys only.
According to THE METRO , Cristiano Ronaldo had openly said that he would one day very much like to play for Manchester United. So now Real Madrid have decided that they will eventually loose him soon. So they are targeting a replacement for him soon. The person chosen is the Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard.Will Chelsea sell Eden Hazard? We must also remember one thing , if Real Madrid really do want a player they will get him and also pay the money, no matter what it is. Like Zinedine Zidane, Gareth Bale, David Beckham, James Rodriguez, Cristiano Ronaldo are examples. Sir Alex Ferguson said he would never sell a virus to Real Madrid, but when the eighty million pounds were paid he was sold soon.
It is reported in the EL MUNDO , that Manchester United had come knocking at the door of Barcelonas famous 34 years old Xavi Hernandez, at the begining Xavi Hernandez was told that he could leave Barcelona this summer, but the club changed their minds , and gave him a years extention at the club.So he will be 35 next year when he finally retires. You can just imagine how good he was at Barcelona and Spain. Louis Van Gaal wanted a player who was in his twilight years , in a club which was beeing rebuild. It is really funny. The EL MUNDO also says Bayern Munich to were very keen to buy Xavi Hernandez. Xavi Hernandez said he did not want to join Manchester United and play under Louis Van Gaal, it was Louis Van Gaal who gave Xavi Hernandez the break at Barcelona. In fact Xavi Hernandez was offered double his weekly salary at Bayern Munich , by Pep Guardiola.
The Spanish club Sevilla .Did get a big surprise as their main sponsors are CRUZCAMPO, a division of the world famous Beer Heineken. So Cruzacampo decided to gift the Sevilla players and their staff a rare gift,. Each player was weighed and then given his weight in beer , just imagine it, the heavier players got the more beer .

The most money made from clubs selling jerseys are as folows are in pounds. 1)Real Madrid. 1,580,000. 2) Manchester United. 1,490,000. 3) Barcelona. 1,90,000. 4) Bayern Munich.945,000. 5)Chelsea. 875,000. 6)Arsenal. 825,000. 7)Liverpool.805,000. 8)Marseille.385,000 9)Juventus. 375,000. P.S.G . 375,000.
At Manchester United Danny Welbeck was considered a failure and a surplus at the club, Arsenal got him for sixteen million pounds on the last day of the transfer window. And he becomes Englands saviour . Here I must say he really did need a change of club to get the best of him. But here we must not forget Sterling who was involved with those two goals.Spain has David Silva to provide the ball for goals. There is no doubt a change of a club , can change a player as well, the new manager will get the best of the player. 1) Daniel Sturridge, his move from Manchester City to Liverpool is a example. 2) Thierry Henry , from Juventus to Arsenal. 3) Dennis Bergkamp from Inter Milan to Arsenal. These are examples and Arsenal have got the best of players. Even Patrick Vieira was a changed player after joining Arsenal.
For a change footballers are joining up with Italian clubs after playing for a few years in England. 1) Ashley Cole joined A.S.Roma from Chelsea. 2) Micah Richards joined Fiorentina from Manchester City. 3) Nmanja Vidic . Joined Inter Milan from Manchester United. This was unthinkable a few years ago.All wanted to come to England. 4) Pasatrice Evra has joined Juventus from Manchester United. It is also reported thatGlen Johnson may leave Liverpool and join Juventus in January.
Now it is official Arsenal have now indeed got the fatest three football forwards in the world of football today. The two new signings of Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck and of course the young winger Theo alcott. Who is the grandson of the famous West Indian cricketer Clyde Walcott. These three speedy players are bound to give the defence of teams in England and Europe a very scarry time indeed.
The youngster sergi samper , is indeed targeted by Arsenal and they are willing to pay the Spanish giants Barcelona his buyout clause which is a small ammount of just 9.6 million pounds. One thing is very clear it will take him some time to reach the main Barcelona team, or for the matter get his starting place at Barcelona. But make no mistake he is indeed va very talented player, his passing is of real class a, and a pleasure to watch. He is also refered to as the new Cesc Fabregas. So indeed it is worth spending 9.6 million pounds on this player. Arsenal intend to tempt him with two young former Barcelona players Hector Bellerin and young Jon Toral. These two swaped the Nou Camp for the Emirates, and they are not the only ones to change clubs.

Over the years many South American footballers played in the E,P,L, Some were big hits some were super flops, mind you the flops wre very good in Italy and Spain.But failed badly in England, was it the English style or was it faster. THE HITS. 1) Carlos Tevez. Manchester United and West Ham, and Manchester City. 2)Luis Suarez . Liverpool. 3)Sergio Aguero. Manchester City. 4)Juan Pablo Angel. Aston Villa. 5)Fatustio Asprila. Newcastle United. THE BIG FLOPS. 1)Alfanso Alves. Midllesbrough. 2) Hernan Crespo. Chelsea. 3) Julio Batista,Hernan 4)Jo. Manchester City and Everton. 5)Diego Forlan. Mancheter United. 6)Robinho. Manchester City.
Manchester United have lost a total of fifty million pounds under the David Moyes period. Failing to reach the champion league or Europea League cost more cost 35 million pounds. They lost more as the club had to pay David Moyes compensation for being sacked seven million went there to David Moyes. And do not forget the other staff members at Manchester United who worked under David Moyes were also paid compensation. But Manchester United say fifty million pounds is nothing for the rich club.Who have new endrosment contracts with Chevrolet and Addidas. But money is money , and can not be wasted this way.
The English striker Danny Welbeck who was considered surplus at Manchester United, and was not fitting into the plans of the new manager Louis Van Gaal at Manchester United , was then sold to arch rival Arsenal on the very last day. They did it even after Arsenal refused to sell their defender Thomas Vermaelen, who was eventually sold to Barcelona for 15 million pounds. Now Danny Welbeck has now gone and scored two goals for England in their Euro 2016 qualifiers against Switzerland. Danny Welbeck has scored two goals in that match, more then what Manchester United have scored all season so far. It is clear Louis Van Gaal will be spending sleepless nights over this blunder.
The young Italian footballer Davide Petrucci has gone and torn up his contract which he had with Manchester United club. He was getting so frustrated at the English club, Manchester United, and seeing how badly they were doing he has now decided to move on. He has now gone to Romania and joined F.C.Cluj. For those who re not aware Count Dracula lived in his castle in the city of Cluj as well.
The agent of football manager Rafael Benitez has said that the Spanish giants Real Madrid twice came knocking at his door for the lucrative offer from Real Madrid in the year 2008, they then came back to try and get him from Liverpool in 2009. It is told by the agent that the Real Madrid president Fiorentina Perez flew down to Liverpool in a private jet and had talks. It is also said the Real Madrid presiident tried very hard to convince the wife of Rafel Benitez to leave England and to return home to Spain and Madrid. But unfortunatelly Rafael Benitez is a man like Arsene Wenger who always honours his contract. After the refusal by the Spaniard, Real Madrid took the Chilean Manuel Peligrini from Vilarreal for the job, the rest is history.
Many must have been wondering how much the clubs in the E.P.L must have spent to wn their trophies at a average. 1) Arsenal have won six trophies since 2003 but hae only spent57.8 million pounds, on a average. 2) Manchester United have won 18 trophies. and have spent 588 million pounds. 3)Liverpool have wonwon six trophies and have spent 100.7 million pounds. 4)Chelsea have won thirteen trophies nd have spent672 mm illion pounds. 5)Manchester City have wonfive trophies but have spent 144.8 million pounds. 6.) Tottenham Hotspurs have not won a trophy , but have spent 472 million pounds.
The Argentinean striker who plays for the Spanish giants Barcelona , is now on the verge of scoring his goal number four hundred for both club and country. The Spanish paper ELMUNDO DEPORTIVO says only a genius can do this. He can do this when he will score two goals against Atletico Bilbao this week. He has scored 356 goals for Barcelona as a total. And he has also scored 42 goals for Argentina, so the total is a huge 398 goals. He is also the forth top goal scorer in the Spanish LA LIGA. People say he has been a failure for Argentina,.How is it possible as he has scored 42 goals for Argentina , Sir Bobby Charlton has scored 49 goals for England. People say that Lionel Messi is a failure , because he has not won a world cup,.This is absolutely unfair on this 27 year old wizard.
It is reported that Manchester United , who failed to sign the Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal from Juventus or THE OLD LADY OF TURIN in the summer. Now it looks more and more likely that Manchester United will use the very talented Spaniard Juan Mata in the forty million deal to get Arturo Vidal from Juventus. It is indeed sad that Juan Mata is used so badly, both Chelsea did the same thing with him and , he was sold to ManchesterUnited for a sum of 37.1 million pounds, mind you for two years in a row he was the foootballer at Chelsea, so both clubs have indeed treated him very shabily. The other talk going around is , that Juan Mata was bought by David Moyes so he must be sold indeed, Very bad thinking by the Manchester United board indeed.
Ikechi Anya is a Nigerian born footballer, he chose Scotland over England and Nigeria as well. He is a speedy winger and is now playing in the none league in England for Wattford. In the Euro 2016 qualifiers , in the match between Scotland and Germany . Ikechi Anya had to score the equalizer , but then Thomas Muller had to sscore his second goal to make it safe for Germany. But Ikechya Anya still can not believe he had beaten the worlds best goalkeeper, after all Manuel Neuer won the Golden glove at the 2014 world cup, also was the goalkeeper chosen for the Ideal Eleven. He says that goal still feels like a dream to score a goal over Manuel Neuer.
The French striker Loic Remy was rejected by Liverpool as they were keen to buy the French striker from his buyout clause which was eight million. Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool said Loic Remy failed a medical test at Liverpool and he had a knee as well as heart problem. This is plain rubbish from Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool, as there is nothing wrong what so ever with Loic Remy, as he is now playing for the French national team , he even scored a goal against Spain. France would never have allowed him to play at a Euro 2016 qualifier. Chelsea have found nothing wrong either with Loic Remy , his knee or a heart problem, he will replace Diego Costa, who has a hamstring problem. Shameless Liverpool only wanted to sign Mario Bolotelli, they now have a ecentric player who gives sacks of trouble where ever he plays, even Jose Mourinho and Roberto Mancini could not control this idiot.
The Montenegero striker Steven Jovetic is out with a hamstring injury , he suffered the hamstring injury in the EURO 2016 qualifier matches against Moldova. Now that leaves Manchester City with a big headache indeed , as they now have only two recognised strikers in Segi Aguero and Edin Dezko. Manchester City have sold their Spanish striker Alvaro Nergado on loan back to spain. And we must also remember that Sergio Aguero , the son in law of Diego Maradona is a very injury prone player.
Wayne Rooney says he has his eyes on overtaking the goal scoring record of the great Sir Bobby Charlton. Sir Bobby Charlton has scored 49 goals for England. Wayne Rooney has so far scored 41 goals for England . He has now scored one goal more then Michael Owen , who has scored 40 goals for England. But the last goal for Wayne Rooney was against minnows Norway , who failed to reach the world cup for eight years, it was scored in a friendly meaningless match. Now Sir Bobby Charlton has scored 249 goals for Manchester United, while Wayne Rooney has so far scored 217 goals for Manchester United.
Manchester United is in for a very long period of rebuilding the club once again, the big fear for the Manchester United fans is that the club will go into the wilderness for a very long time , like Liverpool has fallen into the wilderness, they have not won the E.P.L title since 1990. The club will have to buy wisely in oth players and also not to overspend on players, fans now expect to much from the players . After all the Manchester United team is costing the most a huge 379 million pounds. The players will have to score goals and that is plain and clear, I am not talkinhg about Wayne Rooney scoring a penalty , they must score goals in open play against big clubs, I remember they scored 8-0 against Arsenal, 7-2 against Arsenal , will we see something like that again , I doubt it , let us be honest hee Wayne Rooney has passed his prime, and has put on weight. Just sacking the manager will not get you a trophy, the season has just started and it was reported in THE METRO , that Manchester United wanted Jurgen Klopp to replace Louis Van Gaal , how silly can they be. The Manchester United fans must remember that Louis Van Gaal does not have a magical wand to get results of 38 wins in a season.
The Italian Franco Baldini who is the sporting director at Tottenham Hotspurs could now be easly shown the door. The reason is even after the manager at Tottenham Hotspurs wanted a striker , he was indeed keen for one and had told the club so. But nothing was done what so ever about it, this has then lead Arsenal to act swiftly for a striker after their french striker Oliver Giroud , was injured and it was later found that te leg was broken. As Oliver Giroud would be out for four long months Arsene Wenger acted swiftly and spent sixteen million pounds on Danny Welbeck on the last day. Here it shouldbe mentioned on the 1/9/2014 the last day of the transfer window, Arsene Wenger was in Rome , for a charity football match, but as it was a team work the deal went through even when he was not there. So who should be responsible here Franco Baldini or the Tottenham Hotspurs chairman David Levy?
The U.E.F.A president Michael Platini has very clearly warned the French winger Franck Ribery , that he could easily be banned for three matches at Bayern Munich if he refuses to play for France. Now the trump cards are in the hands ofDider Dechamps the French national team manager. Franck Ribery had announced his retirement from playing for France,, after the 2014 world cup, in fact he missed that world cup in Brazil due to a back injury, and he wants the enior players to drop out and give the younger players a chance to play for France. But the rules of football clearly say that if a footballer does retire from playing for his country, but the national team managers call him up for the team he will have to join up, or he will be banned for three games for his club. In the year 2006 the Franch midfielder Claudio Makelele , retired earlier but was called up for French duty by the then manager of France Raymond Domemech.

Manchester United and Louis Van Gaal will have no excuse what so ever , if they do not qualify for the champion league next year, the entire squad is worth a huge 379 million pounds, the costliest club in the E.P.L. Let us have a look. 1) Wayne Rooney 27 Million pounds, 2)Michael Carrick 18.6 million pounds,Rafael Disilva 2.5 million pounds,Antonio Valencia 16 million pounds,Cris Smalling 10 million pounds,P,Jones 16.5 Million pounds,David De Gea 18.9 million pounds,Ashley Young 16 million pounds, Robin Van Persie 24 million pounds, Maroune Fellaini 27 million pounds, Juan Mata 37.1 million pounds,Ander Herrera 29 million pounds,, Luke Shaw27 million pounds, Marco Rojo 16 million pounds,Angel Di Maria 59.7 million pounds,Daley Blind 13.8 million pounds. And Radamel Falcao 4.8 million pounds on loan. The total spent on these players is a very huge 379 million pounds, so there should be no excuses at all.
It is reported in THE METRO that indeed Manchester United only did sign Radamel Falcao Garcia on a one year loan deal from the french club Monaco. The SUN has done paperwork on the footballer Radamel Falcao garcia, and found that he is indeed thirty years old, according to the school he attended at Santander in Colombia, the school report says his birth date is 10/2/1984. So according to that school age he is now thirty yars old and not twentyeight as he claims to be. And ayear lan was signed , as he has just returned from a major knee injury after nine long months, in fact he also missed out the 2014 world cup held in Brazil.
Rio Ferdinand the former Manchester United defender who now plays for Queen Park Rangers says Manchester United were really mad to sell Danny Welbeck to Arsenal , for sixteen million pounds. Selling to a top four club rival in England is madness. He says when he is given his chance at Arsenal, e will do well. And he also warns you can just imagine the pace Arsenal will have with Alexis Sanchez, Danny Welbeck, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxaldchamberlain.The defence will be caught all over the place. They should have learned from the sale of Thomas Vermalean, Arsenal sold the Belgiun to barcelona , even when Manchester United , were willing to pay fifteen millioon pounds.
IF ANGEL DI MARIA WINS THE BALLON D OR , REAL MADRID WILL BE PAID FOUR MILLION , BY MANCHESTER UNITED.
When Real Madrid sold the Argentinean winger Angel Di Maria to Manchester United the contract had many clauses , this is one of them. If by any chance Angel Di Maria ever does win a Ballon D,Or .. then Manchester United will have to pay the Spanish giants Real Madrid four million pounds. Manchester United think that this four million pounds is very worth paying Real Madrid, as they say their marketing idea was indeed a very good one, to buy Angel Di Maria for sixty million pounds. Nit it is said Manchester United paid thirty million pounds extra for him, now the results in this season will tell us who is wrong or right.

Juan Mata who first joined Chelsea from Valencia , has really done well at Chelsea, but Chelsea was forced to sell him to Manchester United for 37 million pounds. But now sadly it looks Juan Mata will be forced out of Manchester United against his wishes. It will be in the month of January when the Italian giants Juventus will make a nove for Juan Mata,it will greatly depend on where the THE OLD LADY OF TURIN , JUVENTUS will reach in this years Champion League. And with Angel Di Maria, Daley Blind and others Juan Mata will be for sale , as he will be surplus at Manchester United.
According to THE DAILY MAIL , Arsenal are indeed keen to reniew the contracts of two of the Arsenal injured players you can say. Mikel Arteta who is in his early thirties ,according to Arsenal rules Arsenal players once they reach thirty years of age will be only given a one year contract extension.But some players want two oreven three years contract and so leave. Mikel Arteta is the captain of Arsenal, after the departure of Thomas Vermaelen . While on the other hand the French striker Oliver Giroud , who is out for four months with a broken leg, will get a four year deal till 2018. What we must take into consideration here is that the arrival of Danny Welbeck did not prevent Oliver Giroud getting a new contract.
Jose Mourinho is indeed a woried man, his famous Spanish striker Diego Costa, who is originally from Brazil, but plays for Spain like many Brazilians who play for other countries as they know how difficult it is to get selected to play for Brazil. Diego Costa got injured in a cursed friendly match played against France, he limped of with a hamstring injury. Now Diego Costa has scored three goals in four games for Chelsea, and Dider Drogba has not scored a single goal for Chelsea as yet. And Fernando Torres has joined A.C.Milan on a two year deal. So will the goals run dry for Chelsea again.
The famous Swedish striker Zalatan Ibrahimovic has now broken Swedens record for the top goal scorer , he has now scored fifty goals, in a total of 99 games. He is possibly the only footballer ever to score a goal in every minute of a football match .For example from the first minute to the nintieth minute plus the time added on . The thought of such a thing is mind blowing.
During the football match between the famous BoCO JUNIORS and ROSSARIO CENTRAL. the game indeed took a very ugly turn, when a member of the audience threw a rock at Augistine Orion, the rock got him on the head, he was stunned as well as dazed for a while, he went to the line to take medical treatment. He seemed to recover very quickly as he finished the match. The question now is what punishment F.I.F.A will give to the guilty club and fan. FFor example in Austria a player headbutted the referee in the 80th minute of a match. He has got a seventy match ban. Will Rossario Central have to be demoted and play all their games in this season under closed doors.
Frank Lampard decided t retire after he had a small chat with the Manchester United player Luke Shaw. Frank Lampard was amazed that Luke Shaw just did not know who Tony Adams was. Tony Adams was the captain of Arsenal as well as England, Tony Adams retired in the year 2002, at that time Luke Shaw was just seven years old , so what about it we in India know whoTony Adams was. Tony adams was with Arsenal when the two main clubs were Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool. It was well before the Chelsea Sugar Daddy arrived or the Sheikh of Manchester City , who have ruined football in England for good. Only Joe Hart and James Milner are English, at Chelsea I have dificulty to find a English player.So we see the picture in the England football team. In case there are other youngsters who do not know who Tony Adams was ? Let me refresh your memories ,Tony Adams won 66 caps for England, he won four E.P.L titles with Arsenal, three F.A.Cups with Arsenal, was captain of England as well. But Luke Shaw who costs 30 million pounds just does not know or want to know, money and cars are not everything .

The big Swede striker Zalatan Ibrahimovic has now become the all time record holder for the most goals scored by a Swedish footballer for Sweden. He scored a brace against Estonia in a friendly match. zalatan Ibrahimovic has now scored fifty goals for Sweden. The previous record was held by Sven Rydell, who had scored 49 goals for Sweden in 1932. That record stood for 72 long years.
For the tenth consecutive year ral Madrid has made a profit amount of four hundred and eighty million pounds. They had to sell players to balance their books, players like Angel Di Maria, Xavi Alonso, Alvaro Morato , Diego Lopez were sold . And players like James Rodrigues , Naylor Navas came in. But they still have a huge debt of about 540 million pounds, mind you it shrank by 21 percent.
Sure Manchester United board are getting very nervous According to THE METRO Manchester United are indeed very keen to bring in the German manager from the German club Borussia Dortmund in he year 2018. But will Jurgen Klopp leave his German football club Borussia Dortmund to join the English club Manchester United , only to be sacked after say eight or say even a year at Old Trafford. The answer is not likely.Even if he looses the job at Borussia Dortmund he will join another German club. So in other words Manchester United will have to look somewhere else in the year 2018.
The very talented Spaniard was a absolute misfit at Chelsea under Jose Mourinho, and was sold to manchester united for 37 million pounds. And now even after doing well by scoring goals , assisting in the goals as well as his accurate passing. He may be out. As Louis van Gaal has now spent one hundred and fifty million pounds on players during the 2014 summer transfer window. With Ander Herrera , Angel Di Mariaand daley Blind arriving, with Michael Carrick and daren Fletcher already there some one will have to go , so will it be Juan Mata who will be sold? If he is sold it is a big shame. this will show Louis Van Gaal has overbrought players this transfer window.
The football clubs are seldom bothered about their millins of fans . But this club was very much different, the Spanish club Vilarreal , also called the YELLOW SUBMARINES because of their bright yellow jerseys and yellow shorts. A loyal fan of the club Gohan who is thirteen years old , and has cancer. He had a big desire to play for his club at the famous Vilarreal stadium called El Madrigal.So What happened just guess.? The club allowed the sick fan to play with the players he was also given a uniform and he played in a friendly verses Celtic and oh yes he scored a goal as well. Let me ask whether Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, or Bayern Munich would do this , fantastic by the YELLOW SUBMARINES.
All through the summer transfer window Manchester United pressed very hard indeed to get the Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal from the Italian club Juventus or which is called THE OLD LADY OF TURIN. Arturo Vidal who has suffered knee trouble all his football career. Manchester United tried several various money , and also even a huge amount of money thirty two million plus Luis Nani as a player as well. But nothing did click .Manchester United then paid through their noses for Angel Di Maria for sixty million pounds, it is said they paid thirty million pounds more for the Argentinean winger Angel Di Maria. Now that Arturo has injured his knee again , and will have to undergo a operation as well,he is bound to miss a few months of the new season as well. Manchester United and Louis Van Gaal should count their lucky stars indeed.
You might be wondering which is the longest goal ever scored , and who scored it and when. The goal was scored in a E.P.L match between Stoke City and Southampton in the 2013/2014 season. The goal scorer was the Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, who is used to give long kicks from the box. The goal was scored in the twelveth second of the match.From 99 yards distance. The Asmir Begovic kick was wind aided , it bounced wickedly fooling defenders Lovren and Fonte. The bouncing ball foaxed the goalkeeper Artur Boruc.And the ball went in. Asmir Begovic,Paul Robinson, Bret Fiddel and Peter Schmichel are the only goalkeepers to score a goal in the E.P.L.

Let us get a better pictue why the two Colombian footballers were huriedly sold and Radamel Falcao given on loan to Manchester United. The owner of Monaco is a Russian millionaire called Dimitri Rybolovley, and it looks like he is getting ored with the club. To add to this problem he is having two major problems .One is he is slapped with a tax bill to the tune of 41.5 million pounds. And nearer home he is facing a divorce settlement of a whooping 2.7 Billion pounds. It is a mouth watering amount. This is the reason why James Rodriguez was sold and Radamel Falcao was given on loan to Manchester United. Now it is also reported that the 2.7 Billion pounds divorce will be the biggest in the world. And Monaco were forced to sell these stars to stay in line with THE FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULE.
The top managers were in Nyon, for a U.E.F.A conference, on how to make the football better in all sences. Arsene Wenger, Carlo Angelotti, Pep Guardiola,Jurgen Klopp, Luis Enrique, Jose Mourinho, Alex Ferguson, Rafael Benitez, AndreaVillas Boas, Manuel Pelegrini were there, along with others. But there were also some major managers who did not make it. They were Brendan Rodgers of Liverpool manager and Louis Van Gaal the Manchester United manager. It was said as Arsene Wenger had gone to Rome on his way to Nyon that the Arsenal fans were angry as he left on the last day of transfer.
Those who think Manchester United spent far to much on their Argentinean winger Angel Di Maria, he did cost the club sixty million pounds.And some say that they over paid by thirty million pounds. Any way the point is is he a good footballer, and the answer is definately yes. For example in the friendly between Argentina and Germany, Angel Di Maria made three super assists for fellow team mates to score their three goals and he added the forth goal as well. It was a case of revenge for the loss by Argentina to Germany at the 2014 world cup in Brazil. It was slaughter of the Llahms. So we can expect good service from him at this years E.p.L.
The Argentinean defender Marco Rojos , who was bought by manchester United from the Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon for a sum of sixteen million pounds. But he was not given a work permit and so could not play for his new club in this seasons four matches. In fact it was a case between Marco Rojo and his nighbour in Argentina , that had caused all the prblems, as he was not persecuted by the police in Argentina, but had to report reguularely to the police in Argentina, the authorities in England were not in a hurry to issue a work permit, in fact there was a fear that the entire sale deal would collapse by the time the transfer window closed.
Radamel Falcao has revealed that his agent was talking to Manchester United for months before the deal went through on the very last day. The Manchester United fans and the club need not get to rxited about having this striker at the club. We must remember that he was out for nine long months with a very serious knee injury, he also did miss out on the 2014 world cup in Brazil. And manchester United are paying a weekly salary of roughly 300,000 pounds, just imagine a player on a years loan getting that much in a year.He will be laughing all the way to the bank. Well I do agree fully that everybody wants to make money, and I also do agree that a footballer has a very short career upto thirtyfive years at the most. But we must remember that he may never be the same player like he was at F.C.Porto, Atletico Madrid and Monaco. We saw what happened to Michael Owen, Fernando Torres as well. And another pointto note was Jorge Mendes was the agent of both Angel Di Maria a well as Radamel Falcao and also Jose Mourinho
Juventus have started negociations with their French midfielder Paul Pogba. But both Chelsea and Manchester United are very keen to buy him say in the january transfer window. But he will not come cheap in any way , he is expected to cost about sixty million pounds at the least. But what will be very surprising to the football world will be that he was once a Manchester United player during Alex Fergusons days at the club, but both of them did not see eyeball to eyeball, and Paul Pogba was sold to Juventus. Now imagine Manchester United paying sixty million pounds for their former youth academy player.
The French striker Loic Remy who has been compared to Theirry Henry once,. But now he has flatly refused to wear the jersey number nine at Chelsea, which is vacant after Fernando Torres joined A.C.Milan on a two year deal on loan. The Spaniard Fernando Torres is not the first or the last Chelsea player to wear the cursed jersey number nine. Others famous footballers to suffer the number nine curse at Chelsea are Steve Sidwell, Hernan Crespo, Metija Kezman, and Khalid Bouhrouz. Hernon Crespo was famous in Italy so was Metija kezman who was a legend at Ajax. I am quite sure Fernando Torres will do well in A.C.Milan. The last player to wear the number jersey number 9 was the Dutch striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink,, well over a decade ago. Loic Remy is now wearing jersey number 18 at Chelsea

After spending a total of 150 million pounds for six players in the summer transfer window. It looks like Louis Van Gaal will continue to to spend big in January. He has his eyes on the A.S.Roma player Kevin Strootman, for a sum of twentyfive million pounds, and you can bet that will not be the last player arriving at Old Trafford. But mind you 150 million pounds for six players is nothing but being milked very well indeed. And Radamel Falcao is on a loan.
Cristiano Ronaldo is very angry with the Real board, and he has a very good right to be so angry. The reason he is angry is because Real Madrid have gone and sold both very good footballers in Angel Di Maria and Xavi Alonso. Angel Di Maria was sold for a new English record of 59.7 million pounds to Manchester United and Xavi Alonso was sold to Bayern Munich for five million pounds. Angel Di Maria was a very good winger and provided many passes for Cristiano Ronaldo to score those goals at Real madrid. A few years he was angry as Real Madrid sold Mesut Ozil to Arsenal for a club record of 42.5 million pounds. We saw how Real madrid lost to Real Soceidad for a score of 4-2, even after leading by two goals.
al through the transfer window Arsenal were keen on the the Sporting Lisbon holding midfielder William Carvalho, but it was a stuck matter as there was no progress whats so ever. On the last day Arsenal were even willing to give a player as well as cash for the player , but nothing happened. Arsenal were even willing to give their young Costa Rican striker Joel Campbell plus thirteen million pounds.Joel Cambell did very well with Costa Rica at the 2014 world cup in Brazil. His pet name is Goal Campbell. But it did not work out Sporting Lisbon stubornly demanded twentyfour million pounds for William Carvalho. Arsenal was willing to sell a striker , with their regular striker Oliver Giroud out with a broken leg for four months. William Carvalho says now he is very happy at Sporting Lisbon, i he is indeed , why did the club put him for sale in the first place? Could be they really needed that money a huge 24 million pounds.
