Some random football news.

The foam spray used in the world cups to mark 10 yards from a free kick is set to be introduced in the premier league this season.

In japan they already have a tactic that's quite effective. When the free kick is about to be taken and the ref sets the ten yards, a couple of players from the attacking team go and sit/kneel down in front of the wall so they cant move forward. I was laughing out loud when I saw it for the first time but its actually quite effective lol.

But yeah the spray worked well and its a good change to bring into the league
+3
Good it was very effective.

((( The last time this many players left Southampton, it was
the band on the Titanic )))
+1
but the Titanic wasn't heading for Liverpool...
So we are talking about the team who had the best transfer window , Arsenal Or Chelsea , and Liverpool sigining 4-5 players, LVG getting United back on track , what we are really missing is EVERTON!!

They haven't sold any first team player, Got in barry and lukaku on permanent deals, also Besic has joined,With martinez ..

i think they are gonna cause huge upsets .. and if they can get 1-2 good players more in , they may have a good shot at top 4 !

Since you asked, I guess I finally have to share my comments on Liverpool.

I mentioned it last year, the managers that would have problems (due to inexperience) and make Moyes look like Bielsa are Pochettino, Rodgers, and Martinez (if they were to qualify for CL/Europa).
Pochettino can be given a pass this year.

I have no idea what Rodgers is doing with the transfers and (not) adding depth to the squad.
Selling (and loaning!!!) players when you need to keep them AND reinforce is incomprehensible, unless you only plan on competing for the league and are flying the white flag for all other competitions.

It also guarantees this will be Gerrard's last season, since he'll be clattered and spent by February, and thus be completely exposed and left out to dry.

And the players the club DID sign aren't even ready to be of help for another few years! Nonsense!
Hopefully I'm wrong and missing something here, because they had the best football in the Prem last year, which I hope can continue.
+1
Liverpool have the same squad as last year , Only Suarez is gone , with the additions like

Emre can
Markovic
Lallana
Lovren
Lambert
+ A fullback and a striker to come in , I thing Rodgers is doing it right.

PS: I didn't ask man, i was talking exclusively about Everton , lol.
All give a different opinion on Southampton

Everyone is talking about how they lost so much quality and have no big ambitions. But i would argue that all these sales have allowed chances to more youngsters being groomed for the club. It's not like the big clubs played hardball with them. In some cases the big clubs overpaid for the players. Honestly 30m for a teenager who is a defender.

Sure they have lost the base for the team and regardless of the replacements they bring in they should expect a relegation dog fight due to the gelling period. But this is also an opportunity for them. The transfers of Lovren, Lallana, Shaw and Chambers has supplied them with 85m+ on top of what they we're going to spend on transfers. IF THEY DO REINVEST this Soton team might not be done and dusted like how everyone assumes. It's all down to the Owners(current or new) on what they want for their squad..
See here's how the system works in the Premier League (and Newcastle fans will agree to this).

Every year you will always have the odd middle club do well amongst the regular top 6 of Arsenal Chelsea City United Spurs Liverpool, one of whom might slip up, United last season, Liverpool the season before and Chelsea the season before before etc.

Southampton's direction became quite clear in January when their Exec Chairman left (the reason why Pochettino joined), then Poch left, the following is just a result of all these prior events, but the brutal truth is that when one of those top 6 clubs comes a knocking with a sum of cash, no middle club can keep a hold of their star players (Everton have done quite well but i wouldn't classify them in this group).

And the same can be applied for those top 6 clubs when Barca/Real come knocking :D
+1
We've lost ONE player in Suarez and apparently it's the end all? Transfer window isn't closed yet Mt.
+3
Lukaku to Everton!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAWHdnEonKw
+2
Apparently. Also a transfer request handed in by Schneiderlin according to Sky.
+2
Good move I reckon. I dont think Chelsea wanted to keep a player who is unhappy to play second choice.
30m for someone who was benched by 18 year old Origi in Belgiums most important tournament in the modern era seems good business.
Meanwhile Costa who led Atletico to a title and almost a CL over Madrid and Barca was only 32m.


Costa's World Cup was infinitely much worse.
+18
Haha well said Jeroen!!

Lukaku scored 15 PL goals last season,none of Chelsea player managed to do that!
+11
Oh, and before people put words in my mouth: I consider Diego Costa a much more complete and better striker, especially more fit for Chelsea, but Origi benching Lukaku two games doesn't mean anything. Origi is a sublime talent (so no shame in him getting a chance over you) and Lukaku had two poor WC games, that's all.

Origi is Belgium's future Thierry Henry, Lukaku is just Lukaku: big, fast, lethal and ridiculously strong.
+3
Lukaku is just not technical with the ball like Digeo Costa, his first touch his horrendous and that's his biggest weakness but everything else he just dominates everyone else at. His bigger, quicker, stronger and just f*****g ruthless in the penalty box. Its understandable why his 30il, Lukaku did manage 15+ goals on both loan spells in the past two seasons and that's worth a lot in the PL and his only 21 years old.
+2
He is better than all of Chelseas strikers from last season. Its sad he requested a loan when he could have stayed at chelsea and potentially helped them to a league title.
If the guy wants to be first choice then this is not the club for him.
Yes yes tell us how good origi is :D
+4
Origi is Belgium`s future Thierry Henry, you wanna hear it again? P
+1
@Obinocarlo I hope u r right.
he would have had a great future if he could of kept his mouth shut, good luck to him
@Moe66: Lukaku is all of 1 inch taller than Diego Costa. lol
No offense DrogbaLampard, but I think he's going to have a much better future at Everton.

Sturridge 2.0
+11
Chelsea happily profited 18M pounds
+1
@Badge Lukaku didnt even try to be a Chelsea player, he had the perfect chance last season to be the starting CF at a team competing for titles on all fronts with under par competition in the striker department but he still ran away.KDB tried to compete with Willian and Schurrle, Sturridge tried to force his way to be Chelsea`s CF even competing with the Drog, Lukaku doesn't want to compete with Ba and Torres, he seems like a quitter and coward to me
+1
Lukaku is not an Everton player because Chelsea didn't give him a chance, he didn't give chelsea a chance.
Lukaku doesn't know the "player's code" in terms of being able to get into defender's mustaches.
Costa, Drogba (sometimes), and Schurrle are more mature and know how to handle on-pitch "banter".
Lukaku's nowhere near that, as can be seen by taking Mourinho's banter public ("never argue with an idiot..." goes the old adage).
+1
The Merseyside derby just got even better :D
+2
Lukaku just saved his career..He couldn't afford to be behind anyone at Chelsea for a full season..he needs more action than what Chelsea could have offered this season
+3
Chelsea could have played smart and put a buy-back clause on Lukaku :P So once Costa and Torres legs are gone, they can just call him back.
+2
Good career choice by Lukaku
@Peterze

couldn't afford to be behind Torres and grandpa Eto'o? ok then.
I telephoned Southampton Football Club to ask them what time their game kicked off this evening.

The receptionist replied, " What time can you get here "


Poor bastards ;(
+3
so that really happened then ? :P
+9
Isn't easier to say "I called" instead of "I telephoned"? :)
15 year old Martin Ødegaard tearing up the Tippeligaen:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBwAU3Tlawo&feature=youtu.be

This kid is something to behold, definitely one to watch.
+1
Looks skilled. Tried a few too many cheeky moves for my taste.
Plus, competition had a few too many "MLS Moments" to truly know what he's capable of.
He's only 15 though. Norway's league isn't amongst the most high profile or acclaimed in Europe but if he can do that to people almost twice his age there imagine how much potential he possesses. It can only get better.
Someone is smiling .....

dont have enough money to buy even

+1
the real question here is what are you doing in that united friendly website in the first place lol
+2
Good question Johny, I came across a few United fans raging about this on Twitter.
+1
at the risk of sounding like retard, what is the actual joke?

I'm assuming the joke is the fact that they actually recorded, edited and published a DVD of the season every Manchester United fan is trying to wash out of their memory, even if that was free i doubt many would buy it (maybe the Arsenal fans).

Now if that was put up for sale on the Southampton site, i know who would definetly buy it :P
+3
Why would the Arsenal fans buy it? Explain.
Same reason i re-watch our 6-0 victory over you guys
Same reason United re-watch their 8-2 victory over you guys
Same reason you guys re-watch John Terry's penalty slip or Liverpool thrashing United

We all enjoy reveling in our rival club's misfortunes from time to time

And that up there is a season's worth of United's misfortunes neatly compacted in a 2-3 hour DVD.
+3
I will just youtube it, lol. they have a lot of money already!
+2
This is a season "REVIEW" DVD LOL

Not like some club who had a book written about how close they were to the tittle ;)

or of some certain small club who had DVD released on how they beat us(2-1) :D
Breaking news Chelsea signed a new player from Korea called Park Di Bus
+21
Park Ji-Sung's long lost twice-removed step-brother
+1
hahaha classic
*not sarcasm pure emotion*
You know nasinnng.
Does he track back tho?
+1
Ramsey or barkley? I'm sorry its a stupid comparison i know but i need a non-biased answer on this.
Barkley ... that pace, composure, and physicality with the ball is something a lot of young players - and even senior players - don't have these days.
+3
that's an insult.
+9
You're joking right? Barkley is just another hyped up english man. Ramsey is far more superior than that imbecile both statistically as well as physically. Many have agreed that if ramsey wasn't injured for half the season he would of gotten into the pfa tots, he's already in a lot of different team of the season on different websites and well he's got a toty card on fifa 14 ultimate team. Need i go on?
+25
Last season

Ramsey: 35 app, 16 goals
Barkley: 38 app, 7 goals

Do the math gents :)
+13
Arsenal fans:

:P

Goals don't tell the whole story for a midfielder.
@kinglucas, he got no assists either.
+8
Hmmm Ya that does work against him, but it still not everything. He could be making great passes and maybe they don't have great finishers or he could be making the killer pass that opened the defence and the other person got the assist.
KL don't be using that Torres logic

He could be making those great runs but the midfielders just not passing to him right. He could be trying hard to score into the net but the ball is not finding the net. His goals and assists are not as high as Suarez but maybe Chelsea's midfielders have a personal vendetta against him and just don't pass to him, or even talk to him.

Anyways, my point being Ramsey miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles over Barkley.

Also don't forget that he plays for Everton (no disrespect) and not a serious title challenging/top 3 contender club like Arsenal.
+5
For now Ramsey is clearly better then him but Barkley has so much potential, if you actually watch him play games for Everton you'll know how important he is to their attacking football. Plus this really has been his first full campaign for Everton and the PL. I don't think Barkley is overrated at all, his truly something special.
+3
Ramsey is better than him, however Barkley is still amazing, and both players are young, so the sky is the limit...

But as usual Barkley will be touted as England's saviour and over hype him just like they do with any other high potential England player
+1
@Bluffmaster So in u logic if a midfielder doesn't have a lot of assists or goals he is not a good player?
+1
i dont think ramsey is better than barkley at all, he just has more experience. i think barley has more talent than ramsey.
+3
KL, for an attacking midfielder, yes, it is
+1
Ramsey > all the midfielders last season.
+1
who had the best transfer window so far?

definitely southampton.


yeah chelsea by far has the best transfers
+3
Chelsea by far!
+1
Newcastle.
Chelsea
+1
RM... James + Kroos for a total about £80 mill, then they will recover majority of that by selling di maria to PSG

and also Roma have made very impressive signings as well

then i would say Chelsea followed by Arsenal
+2
There's still some time left for other teams, but i liked Newcastle's signings so far and of course Chelsea's.

If Arsenal add a top midfielder and/or striker, then they also would have had a really good window.
Real Madrid
+2
Chelsea!!
Blackpool, they dont even have enough players for next season even haha :P
+1
PSG:p
