Ok, no, the ref isn't on the take, he's just completely incompetent.
Just as true as it was 8 minutes ago.
The ref has sucked, but I think the sucking has generally balanced out.
The England rags are all reporting that Sherwood's tenure at Spurs ends in the summer. Well, d'uh. Van Gaal is the overwhelming bookies favorite but I'd still Spurs paid Everton whatever it took for Martinez before Arsenal do it.
I think I've said it before, but a move to one of the NY MLS teams has to be a good possibility. The new NYC team has three DP openings, and I think this is Henry's last year under contract for NYRB. I'd guess that MLS would be willing to cover most of what Sunderland paid to AZ as a transfer fee, so at that point it's just a matter of whether Jozy is willing to make the same more pay/worse competition trade-off that Dempsey and Bradley have accepted.
No one would need to pay that for him, £1M maybe. He's damaged goods.
FC Barcelona must first lodge an appeal with FIFA’s Appeal Committee and provide written reasons for the appeal within seven days of the notification of the decision. The transfer ban is obviously the most damaging sanction that has been imposed on the club and the ban will remain in place until FIFA’s Appeal Committee confirm their decision as Article 124(2) of FIFA’s Disciplinary Code only allows for fines to be suspended pending an appeal. If, however, FIFA’s Appeal Committee rejects the appeal and FC Barcelona choose to lodge a further appeal to the CAS, the club can apply to the CAS for a stay of the sanction until the CAS appeal is determined. FC Barcelona will, therefore, want the FIFA appeal to be heard as soon as possible to enable them to urgently apply to the CAS for a stay of the decision before the summer transfer window so they can continue to sign players until the CAS appeal is heard. Chelsea were previously successful in applying for a stay of a transfer ban in 2009 in the case involving Gael Kakuta.
I know I'm going to piss some Liverpool fans off but at what amount does FSG say yes to if Madrid or some other team comes sniffing around Suarez again?
Altidore exiled to Sunderland's U-21 team.
What a disaster that move has turned out to be.
He was slow, couldn't win headers in the box, and his control was awful.
(Player has no significant strengths)
There are things that a man of his skills can do to help a club even if he's starved of service. Those skills are presumably why the club bought him in the first place.
I maintain that Altidore does have skills, which is why he keeps getting chances. He just doesn't show them on a consistent basis. Which is why he stinks compared to what I would think his ability merits. I don't think that is an unfair assessment. Sunderland does stink, but a guy like Borini came in and played and had an impact on matches. Borini didn't hang his head or complain about playing out wide or anything else. He just went in, made runs for teamates and worked hard.
I do believe Sunderland thought they were getting a target man.
Anybody else think Ba was offside? Watch here (esp the 2d angle) and tell me if I'm crazy.
A former Arsenal star is thought to have joined a band of ruthless Jihadi fighters waging war in Syria.
The gun-toting fanatic is said to have grown up playing with Real Madrid galactico Cristiano Ronaldo.
The militia man turned his back on a footballer's playboy lifestyle after becoming radicalised two years ago, it is claimed
He is filmed wielding an AK47 and proclaiming holy war in two terror videos on an extremist website.
Fellow jihadists say the fighter - who now calls himself Abu Issa Al-Andalusi - was brought up in Portugal before signing for the Gunners.
In the footage he appears in a mask calling on Muslims to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) - an al-Qaeda off-shoot group behind murders and beheadings.
The faction has been blamed for extreme violence against other Islamist groups, Kurds and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s brutal regime.
The fanatic says: “It’s very important for you to protect your children from these animals, from these dirty people; Allah says they are the worst of creatures.”
One of the videos acts as a recruiting call for supporters in the Ukraine.
The ex-Premier League footballer says “we are in need of all kinds of help in fighting the enemy”.
He boasts: “We have conquered many cities and we are now implementing the sharia. We have areas where the kaffirs [non-Muslims] are paying us the tax.”
The overhead shot shows him very clearly onside.
Based on my reaction to PSG vs. Chelsea. I definitely hate Russian Petro Barons worse than Middle Eastern ones.
Every little two-bit country in Europe has a pro league, often with 16-18 teams in the top tier. I'm sure you can handle a few more teams.
With the caveat that it's tough to speak in such broad strokes, I think the country does care about the sport. It's just that a large percentage of that subsection doesn't care about MLS.
Focusing on stocking a 16ish team league with actual talent seems like it would be the way to go, rather than going to 22-24 and hoping to somehow fill out the quality over time.
