To be honest, I couldn't care less about Wenger not signing anyone. The prices for players are simply astronomical, and to be honest there just aren't very many good players on the market right now. When you look at the positions where we could use more players, that would be in defense and in the c...

I can do 52 Perfect Push-Ups... I haven't been in a weight room in a few months. The Perfect Push-Up in my opinion virtually eliminates any need for upper body weight training.

-One thing I remember was this trick we would play on other kids in fifth grade. Basically you would take a dead dandilion and a yellow one, and tell someone to hide the living one somewhere on their body. After establishing that you could find it with the dead one, you would ask if they hid theirs ...

Yeah I heard about this yesterday. To be honest I haven't seen him play before, but he's supposed to be the business, so I guess it's a good buy for Roma.

I also think that if City end up without Ronaldo they should look to Patrick Kluivert, whose contract with Lille ended, he's still only 32, he could be in good enough shape to play in the Prem. and he would give the players a lift knowing they would be training with one of the best strikers of all-...

Is that a serious question? Based on everything, Pirlo. Surely you never saw Guardiola play. He was an absolutely fantastic player. To be honest I would go with Johnson. While Andy van der Meyde was a talent, he simply never lived up to his ability, and I don't even know where he plays right now. J...

Ricardo Quaresma is in a different league to Kranjcar. To be honest, I think that Quaresma has more raw talent than C. Ronaldo.

Pep Guardiola vs. Andrea Pirlo

Anyone with Sirius?

I finally got my Sirius radio hooked up after getting it for a Christmas present last year, so I was wondering if anyone has it. Besides channel 125 (basically the soccer channel, although "The Football Show" is in my opinion diabolical), my favorite channels are 39 (boombox, the breakbeats/rock rem...

PMs about posting in topics

Recently I have gotten a couple of PMs asking me to post in a topic, and I would like to ask kindly for these to stop. I just think it's kind of annoying to have people basically begging for input. It will come eventually, just be a little bit patient for God's sake. I know that I'm not here a whole...

If the thrower has pressure on him by no means should you give the ball back to him. That just puts him in a very difficult situation in a position that virtually isolates him from loads of options. Instead just take a touch down and out of your feet, if you have the opportunity to attack the byline...

God, not the music business (don't take offense to this. It's just that my cousin, who is a cool guy but an utter hippie bum, is convinced that he is going to become a head guy for some company that basically acts as a travel agent for jam band festivals and stuff like that.

Very well done, but if I may add a bit: And work on ball skills. Go outside and bang the ball against a wall for a half hour a day. Switch feet, outside of foot, inside of foot, backheel, one-touch play. Master the ball. When playing with a wall, to really increase the speed of your game, you should...

And Pavlyuchenko set for Spurs. Russian players are a big gamble, as I heard that their culture and lifestyle is way different than anything we could imagine. That and he really isn't Russia's first choice forward (their first choice guy who scored a brace vs. England was injured I think during the ...

Or Kleberson for that matter...

By the way, where is Djemba-Djemba? Last I saw he was at Burnley I think.
