Re: The new Galacticos

I feel that this generation is better than the last. If Ribery/ Alonso went to Real i really dont know what to expect. Will they do well or mediocre? Will it be superstars trying to be the star of the game? Better than the last Galacticos, that is quite a claim. They have the potential but they are...

Unlike football however, you can have very little natural intelligence and if you work enough and learn in school you can make something of yourself, that is why it is important, all those things like sport, music etc rely much more on talent and there is no place for average people, only the best. ...

The USA played a very good game to beat Spain, i was 100% sure Spain would win and had not even considered the USA, just goes to show how amazing and rare the underdog win is, hats off to them. The USA will have to have confidence from this, because technically if they can beat no.1 they can beat an...

Asia isnt too good either, they have one or two good teams but they still arent as good and never will be as good as any European or South American team. I think that Europe and South America will continue to dominate, however African teams have a real chance, they have the potential to establish th...

I liked how Dempsey started becoming the entertainer which you would expect from the brazillians, he has a sweet sweet rabona near the end And you yanks are really unlucky bastards when it comes to red cards (even though the dude did deserve to go) Ah you people suck. We have our 'horns' that we st...

If it wasnt for that red card USA could have maybe held out for a draw, im sure the guy who got sent off will be feeling it anyway, just a group match. The Italy goals were great though, 2 great strikes but that last goal especially, it was all class from the build up to finish.

I have talked to a guy that used to coach Tim Cahill, when he was a kid, and a guy that has played against him when he was younger, and heard that he was fairly good at his age, not so much overall compared to all the players in a game, but technically he was far superior to anyone, they described h...

I know this is kind of old but i was looking it up myself not long ago, everyone hears about the richest players but i was trying to find the average that most get. This doesnt help you out with the other European leagues but it has figures for England. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/48983...

We play a sort of formation like a 3-5-2 sort of thing, it is a bit different but it works well for a passing game, the defenders tend to stay back and there are 2 CDM players, a CAM, and 2 wide players sort of wingbacks. The ball is basically it starts from the back and the wingbacks recieve and di...

Evo puts up a very valid point but consider this. My home team is Sydney FC. You have probably never watched a Sydney game, and i hope you never have to. They are incredibly boring to watch, they either play long ball which is the death of football or they dont show up at all. And about the team rep...

I agree about what you said about Madrid buying Dutch and Barca playing like them :lol: I have a feeling a lot of Dutch players would be more at home in the Barca squad.

Except we all now the Netherlands (In the who played the prettiest most exciting soccer) played the best football in the Euro's, they lost due to tactics That is a very good point, Barcelona won today playing the best football, but often th...
