I'm fine with the squad, except the lack of Thiago Motta. He's the one who can keep the ball moving around the midfield. Kaka might be the one to play the killer through ball, but Motta is the one who can get him the ball (and do it fast enough for the chance to be there). Other than that, they'll p...

Exactly what I mean klc. The more I think about it, the more I feel ManU should get Ibra. At Barca, he looks constricted to just playing in the middle, that's why he's not at his best. As long as he's given freedom to roam, he'll produce. Given ManU's lack of a playmaker, Ibra could slot in just beh...

I hope by some miracle he gets fired now. Replace him with someone who at least has managed another team in the past. Simeone off the top of my head, don't know how good a manager he is but at least he's not on the same intelligence lever as a dead racoon. If not now, then I hope Argentina get embar...

I don't think Berba would work particularly well at Barca, he's pretty much a worse version of Ibra, and Ibra hasn't worked out well.

Did you by any chance find that on one of Inter's Facebook groups?

I'm not a United expert or anything, but the striker could be anyone really, it depends on what kind of role Rooney will play. If Rooney plays in a similar role to this season; where he takes charge and becomes the main striker; then I think Ibra would be a great partner for him. And by Ibra, I mean...

Against Inter, the few times he ran forward with the ball, he was able to take a shot. Over both legs the plan seemed to be to make sure he would only be able to dribble laterally. He'd pick up the ball in the centre, then he'd only be able to go backwards or to the wings. If he picked up the ball i...

Inter. Bayern are a quality side, and it won't be an easy match, but Inter definitely deserve it. I think they still have a level they can play at that they didn't even hit against Chelsea or Barcelona.

My ratings: Messi: godly Tevez: great Higuain: great Milito: great Aguero: quiet by his standards, but still good Lisandro: been back and forth Lavezzi: he's been helping Napoli out a lot, don't know if he can step it up though Zarate: his attitude is bugging me, not a very good season, but he is a ...

I don't think Inter's plan at the start of the game was to defend as much as they did. They were forced to defend at the start of the game when Barcelona went guns blazing to grab a goal, but once Inter got settled I think the plan was to counter attack, not just clear and soak up the next wave of a...

Barcelona are for sure the best attacking team in the world, but are they the best team? That's for another topic to discuss. IMO Inter are the best defensive team and the most balanced, Chelsea are pretty well balanced, Barcelona are great at dominating posession and overloading the attack, which w...

To look good? I don't know, just thought it would be a little inconvenient to have a collection of jerseys from almost every game you play.

If he can conquer the best team in the world with Inter Milan, he is easily the best manager in the world. Now that's just unfair to the Inter players. Inter have always been able to play top class football, they just needed motivation and organization. They got it under Mourinho, and the results s...

Exchanging Shirts

Just out of curiosity, never really thought about this before. What do pros do with the shirts they exchange? Do they keep them as souvenirs, or do they switch back in the tunnels? Or something else?
