wanted to post this on UCL thread but no one been there in a last few months..so i'd post it here

lets discuss this

Seeing the unrest around Russia-Ukraine right now..I wonder if the clubs like CSKA Moscow, Shakhtar Donetsk, Zenit, Dnipro etc would be omitted from entering UCL/UEL?

well last season Valencia refused to travel to Kiev to play Dynamo Kiev due to security reason..and the match moved to neutral venue in Cyprus instead.

and last i heard rumors..once again..RUMORS that some of the players refuse to return to their respective clubs in Russia/Ukraine due to the same reason. Pls correct me if i'm mistaken TQVM

**okay founded the article

http://www.themoscowtimes.com/news/article/6-south-american-players-refuse-to-return-to-donetsk-soccer-club/503829.html
I think they should just use neutral venues. The clubs didn't do anything wrong and don't deserve to be banned. Tight security measures for all entering the stadium, I assume, is for every UCL/UEL match.
FIFA Dream Team for the 2014 World Cup:
Goalkeeper: Manuel Neuer (Germany)

Defence: Marcelo (Brazil), David Luiz (Brazil), Thiago Silva (Brazil), Mats Hummels (Germany)

Midfield: Angel Di Maria (Argentina), Toni Kroos (Germany), James Rodriguez (Colombia)

Attack: Neymar (Brazil) Lionel Messi (Argentina), Thomas Muller (Germany)

Coach of the tournament: Joachim Low

3 Brazilians? No Robben? Enough said!
There's 4 Brazilians in that line up not 3 lol. Only ones that it could be argued deserved their places would be Neymar or Thiago Silva.

Minus 1 cracking free kick , luiz wasn't at his best and neither was Marcelo. Would have selected Lahm over either of them.
+1
Well done keeping that impenetrable Brazil defensive trio together!
+2
LOL. ** 3 Brazilians in Defense **

To be honest, Thiago Silva was nowhere upto his expected levels as well. I would not put a Brazilian in that 11. Neymar was great, but there were others who deserved more.
Luiz was actually pretty solid throughout the WC, he scored some key goal(s) at key moments, i think he was FIFA's most highest rated player over the whole of the tournament, till the 7-1 game.

But i agree, after that performance and the one after that he doesn't deserve to be in the XI (or dream team w/e), even Thiago Silva's place could be argued (Moreno, Garray, Gonzolez are in with a shout). And how Vlaar, isn't on there is beyond me.

Marcelo over Blind or Lahm (are you kidding me?)

Di Maria over Robben or Mascherano? my god.

I know this is voted by fans but the bias is scary.
only neymar deserves to be in that line-up. okay maybe t.silva too. but not for luiz and marcelo. crap afrojack-footballers.
luiz's main job was being a defender and he was bad in the games i saw and whats up with marcelo he is equally as bad.


Also i didnt realise this until now but the All-star team didnt have messi. i thought he was in it. but how does one win the best player of the tournament but not make the all star xi

anyway these lists are poop. just like the fifa world xi
"However, these clubs might be impacted by the new Premier League regulations, which have restricted the amount of money clubs can spend from the new TV deal on wages. Specifically, clubs whose total wage bill is more than £52 million will only be allowed to increase their wages by £4 million per season for the next three years. However this restriction only applies to the income from TV money." -swiss ramble

nice idea but there are probably a million loopholes for this.

shocking fact of the day, qpr's wage bill last season, in the championship, was high than atletico madrid's by 24 million pound. qpr spent 128% of their revenue on wages alone.
£4 million per season is like ten players signed with 400,000/week wages, and only Messi/CR7 get that much I guess. So it's pretty much useless, no? Am I missing something here..
400,000 pounds per week = 21.6M pounds per year??

niru, i'm not sure what kinda of math you're doing there.
+2
I think niru is using Zimbabwean dollars instead of the British sterling pound :P
I took the per year salary as per week salary -_-

Sorry guys :P
+1
its alright this time , be careful the next time Niru. :P
Bojan Krkic signed for Stoke???? Bad move on his behalf, anyone but the Orcs, theirs no way this move apart from getting minutes is going to better his game. He needed a team that fits his style of game, I would understand if he moved Swansea or even Newcastle United who made some good attacking MF signings who play a lot like him with creativity in their game who he could link up with but Stoke?
Hughes has reformed stoke quite a bit,they need a few technical players now. Look how useful assaidi was last season. may be bojan wants play in a physical team to prove a point as well, a criticism that shadowed him his whole career.
+1
Typical reaction from those who don't really watch other clubs play. Stoke has played some brilliant football under Hughes. Lot of possession based football and been excellent on the counter too. Proper football from them.

108 for rodriguez? he's not worth anything near that kind of money. there are tons better than him
ASM bought him only just a year ago for £39.60m, and sold him for £70.40m after one season. Kinda logical if for someone being sold just after he move to the club only a season ago. the price will be high.

Besides, it not like ASM are poor or anything, they got Russian billionaires at their backs. RM just splashed the cash just to get him.

We'll see if this 70m spending is worth it for RM. Worked out well for CR7 an Bale. Third time is the charm ?

Ryan Giggs has been told that Manchester. United
' Going Dutch ' doesn't mean he can sleep with
Van Gaal's wife.

yeah don't wanna have a 'dutch oven' at night, eh riggs and zaha ?

It will be good Prem league this year im sure

Strong !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
now if only any of the English teams win the UCL this time will be worth other. otherwise, same old story.
I see Rihanna is the German World Cup squad's biggest fan.....

streak.

Lol bro we now you are here posting that to start something because you want attention. He was the best player for England in World Cup 2006 and 2010. As far as club level he chose to be loyal and stay with his club. Don't judge a player on trophies. If he went to Chelsea or Real Madrid( best clubs at the time) he would have won a lot of trophies.

Some serous trolling there.

List of positive things about Gerrard:
1. He has a powerful shot
The End
+13
from today he was still the greatest player for england
that's just quite harsh towards Gerrard

take it from me as I'm a neutral.. And he's no way overrated as u exaggerated (well, usually British player were always overrated..maybe some), but Gerrard is not like u said he is. I remember more time Gerrard carrying Liverpool on his back than not

and as for me i'd always admire those players who stick with their club instead of chasing trophies & fatter paychecks (this one u can take from me as well as i've a first hand experience what the differences between players like Buffon, Nedved, Trezeguet, Del Piero vs the likes of Cannavaro, Vieira, Ibra)
+1
@Robberyback2, You clearly need to get your eyes checked because you ain't seeing s**t straight.
.
+2
His one of the few England players who are not overrated...And they are few..just my 2 cents

@TheChelsea
List of things Gerrard is good at:
-Shooting
-Passing, short and long
-Leadership
-Tacking
-Inspiring Team mates
-Vision
-Inspiring Team mates.

List of things Lampard is better than Gerrard at:
-
+6
I'm pretty sure gerrard wanted to leave when he refused to accept his new contract after champions league 2005. Just like luis suarez wanted to leave last season. But in both cases liverpool refused to let their player go. I think after the liverpool refused to let him go, nobody showed interest in the transfer windows following that one. This is kind of sad because if liverpool let him go in 2005, he would have won a premier league with chelsea or potentially a la liga with madrid.
I admire gerrard as a player though. I think he's a great character and leader.
Unsurprising that people are sniping him, honestly even Evertonians on Reddit are showing more respect for the man. Even Redditors have more decency than some of you lot.

Stevie G always gave his best for England, a great player and a classy man. Best of luck to him in the future.

I missed all the fun dam
Robbery the troll back to his normal ways.
Gerrard isn't a Bendtner tho
@TheChelsea I think u mean Lampard.

Lets just all agree that the entire England national team should just retire from international football
