I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread where fans like me could discuss the bueatiful game. LOL Now to start with...

- Manchester United signed two young Serbians Zoran Tosic and Adem Ljajic
- Rubin Kazan won the Russian championships and will be in next year's CL
- Everton will be without Louis Saha, he joins teammate Yakubu on injury list
- Liverpool leads the EPL and is in a position to win the title for the first time in a loooong time!
- Tottenham Hotspurs is on the bubble for relegation
- Liverpool's skipper Steven Gerrard got into trouble after a bar room brawl.
- 1st round K.O. of the CL starts on 24/02
- CL's top scorers so far are: Messi, Gerrard, Klose, Benzema
- David Beckham is on loan to Milan until March
- UEFA Cup also picks up in late Feburary
- UEFA U21 2011 qualification starts this year
- The rumours of an Arshavin transfer to Arsenal are heating up again
- Maurinho says Ibrahimovic is a better player than Ronaldo and deserved the golden ball award. LOL
- Inter Milan tops Serie A with 3 out the 5 teams accused of match fixing in 2005 standing just behind them in 2,3, & 4 places.

- Liverpool leads the EPL and is in a position to win the title for the first time in a loooong time!

Isn't Man U 7pts behind but also 2 games less? Anyway, a lot of things can change in the spring, especially considering the CL/UEFA Cup matches - some teams will have more than one battle to fight and may get more tired than others. Personally, I expect Manchester to concentrate on the CL (they'll try to become the first team to win it back-to-back since it's called CL)...



- Liverpool's skipper Steven Gerrard got into trouble after a bar room brawl.

:blah: He is a real captain for his teammates on the field and I was :eek: when I found out...5 (or 6?) vs 1 person? It doesn't take a lot of courage ...



- David Beckham is on loan to Milan until March

I don't see any other reason for this than selling some t-shirts :bribe: As a big fan of Milan I'm a little disappointed...I mean, when will we get a player who isn't in the retiring age?



- Maurinho says Ibrahimovic is a better player than Ronaldo and deserved the golden ball award.

It's Maurinho! Of course he'll say something like that! :D Man, I love his style...IMO Ibra is soooo overrated...plus he has a bad personality and football is a team sport...I would never want him in my team, no matter how good he is with the ball...I don't like C. Ronaldo much either but he deserved that golden ball - basically he pulled Manchester and lead them to the success all by himself.



- Inter Milan tops Serie A with 3 out the 5 teams accused of match fixing in 2005 standing just behind them in 2,3, & 4 places.

This year it's time for Milan to win the scudetto...and we are not even playing CL :( so no more excuses.

Buzz, the big news for us Yanks is Landon Donovan going out on loan to Bayern Munich. Donovan badly wants to play in Europe, so this is his big chance to impress. Especially since his time spent at Leverkusen was such a disaster. But one wonders how much playing time he'll see with the likes of Toni and Klose there already....

Manchester City's Robinho has been charged in England of sexual assault and has been released on bail. What a sad turn of events. Robinho is a very talented young man and I hope the allegation is not true. :(

Shay Given has joined Manchester City from Newcastle. Manchester City is on a spending spree following the team transfer of ownership to a Abu Dhabi based company. They have also signed: Craig Bellamy, Nigel De Jong, Wayne Bridge, but failed to sign Kaka. Meanwhile Brazilian striker Guilherme will go Dynamo Kiev. The transfer window closes on MOnday I believe.

Monday at noon in the US, probably the same in Canada. There are rumors about doing away with the window concept & going to a 12 month/365 day window. We'll see if that comes to pass.

NJL (...and there is a persistent rumor that Miami will get an MLS franchise to begin playing in the 2010 season alongside a new, already accepted, Philadelphia franchise. The latest rumor, reported in the Spanish press, is that the outfit that will provide the management team, a group of Catalan unknowns called FC Barcelona, are reviewing a draft of a franchise contract now and an announcement about the MiamiMLS franchise should be made on or before February 15, 2009. The $40,000,000 franchise fee is being paid by Bolivian/Miami billionaire Marcelo Claure. He will be the franchise holder & Barca will manage the team. We'll see about this, too...;) ...)

Good luck to them! Nice to see the MLS growing.

Just one more bit of transfer news and that is; Arsenal has finally signed Russian Andrei Ashavin. Arsenal is not doing so well right now. Manchester United on the other hand is once again on top and fighting them all the way is Liverpool. According to Goal.com Christiano Ronaldo has signed a contract with Real Madrid, and supposed to start playing with them next summer. If true I wish him all the luck. He truely is a very gifted young man.

David Beckham is reportedly interested in staying with AC Milan. But he still has 2 years left on his contract with LA Galaxy.

In CONCACAF Final WC 2010 qualifying:
USA 2 - 0 Mexico -
Yes, the USA has a thing about beating Mexico by this score in Columbus, OH. I think this is the 3rd or 4th time they've done it. USA starts off the 10 game hex with 3 points. I think they'll need about 20 points to insure a trip to South Africa in 2010. This is a very good start....:D

NJL (...:cheer::cheer2::40beers::encore::kickass: ...)

ETA: Also -
El Salvador 2 - 2 TnT
Costa Rica 2 - 0 Honduras

The hex after round 1 is:

USA..................3 Points
Costa Rica..........3
El Salvador.........1
TnT...................1
Honduras............0
Mexico...............0

Only 9 more rounds to go....;)

Another 2-nil win for the USA over the Tri's... Somehow I think we should always play them in Columbus in February!

Now if we could just get a win in Azteca....
