... it feels so weird to have optimism about Leeds, Bates is gone, the manager is not a cunt, the fans are happy... I am genuinely excited.


Congrats. :)

I also heard that Leeds is in the process of buying back Elland Road. I hope that works out for your team too.

Yeah. He probably the only reason they weren't relegated last season with his 19 league goals.

Well this is an interesting take on the Bale situation:

Real Madrid seem determined to pay in installments because they dont have the money to pay upfront, and they're still paying for Modric. In truth all these massive numbers being thrown around aren't as good as they sound because the 80mil pounds is actually spaced out over 5 years making it extremely difficult to receive the cash and retool the squad once Bale's gone hence Levy putting him foot down.

There was an article I read yesterday explaining that that's the way they get around the FFP rules. Spreading out these massive fees and shipping out high earners so that the monthly bill doesn't get out of hand.

They all do, but he doesn't do anything for the national team and his two good club seasons were in Holland, where everyone scores.

Uh, no. CONCACAF only covers North and Central America, which doesn't include South American teams like Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay.

Ah Ronny :lol:

The almighty great Marca were reporting that he had extended his contract to 2018 before he did todays press conference saying " "It is not yet solved my renewal. Maybe later we know something more concrete."

He also blatantly dismissed questions about Gareth Bale. Much different than every other RM player bending over backwards to accommodate him.

This is brilliant. Anzhi have not won any of their first 4 matches this season. Meulensteen was sacked after 16 days in the job and whole team is transfer listed. Samba back to WPR then? :lol:

2 things:
Should've stayed at Man Utd
Willian plz :P

If these quotes are legit, then the Luis Suarez saga is crazy, they're not vague innuendo speculating something...they're pretty specific:

The thing is that I'd love Arsenal to sign some world class talent, just not that dick.

Loved that video though.

So Liverpool are just ignoring Suarez's contract?

It sounds like they are the team with 'no class'.

What are they smoking over at Anfield?

Sounds to me that he made a gentleman's agreement with Ayre and Rogers and they deliberately gave him a badly written contract as a backdoor to avoid his departure:

The Guardian wrote:The bid, though, tested the clause and revealed that Liverpool saw £40m as the point at which they must start to negotiate, not the point at which they are obliged to sell.


There is no sense in including a clause that says "you are forced to negotiate". So what? It has no practical consequences. It imposes no burden on the club at all (their negotiation could well be sending the gardener with instructions to say "no" to very offer). If I'm forced to negotiate but not to reach an agreement, I might just save the negotiation at all. It's simply ridiculous from a legal point of view.

I'm inclined to believe Suarez here. There's probably the +40M clause in the contract but it's so badly written that 'Pool are hanging on to a straw and hope Arsenal won't test it on court, or can get more coin by negotiating an "amicable" solution.

Yeah, why would Suarez sign a contract that fucked him over?

Liverpool have done something a bit dodgy here I reckon.

You gotta feel their point though. Aspas - Sturridge - Downing isn't exactly Europa, much less CL material :lol:

This is funny, as much as I despise the guy on a personal level I actually feel for him in this case.
