Mefisto as an ex defensive player this pains me to admit but in my dotage I've come to sympathize with offensive players a bit. If an opponent dived against me he could count on a gift later, but Suarez and Sturridge get kicked all over the pitch. Sturridge should have had a pen against Carrick and Suarez should have gone to ground earlier in the match. Its not good, but I can see why offensive players do it. I have very little sympathy for Vidic, he launched himself and put himself in a bad spot. Sturridge is a diver. Suarez's rep as a diver is overblown at this point, although he still does dive.
It is difficult to be a good defender and not be dirty. I mean, there is a reason they put me on defense in the first place right? If I were pacy and had mad dribbling skilz I wouldn't be at DM.
Players dive, film at 11:00. When you see Fellaini kick the crap out of Suarez not once but twice on the same dribble in the box, with a result of Clattenburg staring blankly at Suarez, you can understand why players are wont to exaggerate contact
As a fan of the opposition, I was actually happy at the Rooney extension. I think that was a commercially driven move rather than a football move.
A senior Fifa official and his family were paid almost $2?million from a Qatari firm linked to the country’s successful bid for the 2022 World Cup, The Telegraph discloses.
Jack Warner, the former vice-president of Fifa, appears to have been personally paid $1.2?million (£720,000) from a company controlled by a former Qatari football official shortly after the decision to award the country the tournament.
Payments totalling almost $750,000 were made to Mr Warner’s sons, documents show. A further $400,000 was paid to one of his employees.
It is understood that the FBI is now investigating Trinidad-based Mr Warner and his alleged links to the Qatari bid, and that the former Fifa official’s eldest son, who lives in Miami, has been helping the inquiry as a co-operating witness.
I believe we can now turn our efforts to Spivey (leans Fulham correct?). With Fulham going down you will need a secondary club for next season. We are fresh out of pamphlets at the mo, but can add you to the spammer.
Suarez is a chump
So what happens if Chelsea goes all the way in the CL (shudder) and finishes top 4 in the PL? Does everyone underneath their PL spot move up 1 (in terms of CL qualification)? Would 5th become 4th?
Klinsmann tweet: "We are absolutely thrilled that Julian Green has chosen to be a part of the U.S. National Team Programs!"
He makes a good point that this works out well for Bayern commercially, especially with the Bundesliga moving to Fox.
In preperation for my pending BMG fandom I've been trying to read what I can here and there on the Bundesliga and it's history. Man, the stereotypes about Bayern really do have a lot of facts behind them don't they?
I haven't actually watched United much this year, so it's been hard for me to tell precisely who to blame. But I'm watching now and they look really good! Is this a radical exception?
If (and of course it's a big if) United were to get another goal here, and then continue further in the Champions League, how far would they have to go to rescue the season? Basically, if they finish 6th in the league but make it to the finals of the Champions League, is that a satisfactory haul? Or have they been so terrible in so many matches that even some success in Europe can't paper over the underlying problems?
More importantly, if United win the champions league, which club getting Spurs'd would be the funniest result?
-- I'm not quite sure why this was portrayed as a famous victory to use the commentator's words. Shameless time wasting and putting 11 men behind the ball against a team like Olympiakos at home for an extended period of time reeks of something, but I don't think it is the smell of famous.
Spurs in for Pochettino?
Rumors...just rumors...I'm starting to think LVG ends up at United, though. He's available and he has the pedigree for the job. The one name that is intriguing but hasn't been mentioned in conjunction with Spurs is Bielsa. If we can't be the champs maybe we can be the hipsters' favorite team!
I wonder if Moyes thinks Giggs in central midfield would work against Bayern.
Saddest part is that it would probably work better than United's other CM options.
At least Fellaini gives you some physical play, and Cleverly will be English with a ton of "endeavour."
