Once a German, always a German. As accurate as fu**ing snipers.
woah snipers eh? That totally explains why Nowitzki recently broke the NBA record for the most consecutive free throws in a game :lol:

Hargreaves was another example. Ditched us Canadians and represented England in the World Cup.....understandably so :lol:

and unlike an Englishman, he was the only one to score a penalty when England crashed out to Portugal in the QF. Thats just a dead give away, eh? lol

Pedro faster than Aguero? Kind of. Pedro has a faster top speed but Aguero's agility is ridiculously quick......while we are having this discussion it should be noted that Guisseppe Rossi had the best season compared to those two in La Liga by far. After Messi and Cronaldo, Rossi was the best forwar...

Pedro is a technically brilliant player. His touch, dual footed finishing ability and relentless drive to win possession allowed him to easily take over Henry and become a regular starter on the wing. Aguero is flashier and more exciting player without a doubt considering the way he cuts through def...

there are plenty of teams in la liga who go guns blazing but with regards to the "1-2 touch pass and move" strategy of Barcelona and Arsenal, Villareal comes very close. It kind of explains why Rossi's the first person on the transfer list for Barcelona apparently. Edit: Today the papers are saying ...

Its official. Malaga is signing Ruud Van Nistelroy. I dont watch the German league but he hasnt been shy of the goal for Hamburg last season. He might be past his prime physically but he is still a clutch finisher. Perhaps he will be used as a super-sub to influence the game whenever Pellegrini sees...

I don't think packing the midfield with players is cheating the system. On the contrary, many could argue that Barca are cheats for committing overkill by completely raping teams in the midfield with possession and short passing if that was the case. However, hacking the likes of Messi to pieces is...

hahahahahahaha i dont really like your callous attitude on these forums klc but THANK YOU for point out the elephant in the room Its too weird that a person who just kept claiming that Barcelona is indestructible since December is very adamant about proving Barcelona's weaknesses now all of a sudden...

Thanks for clearing that up Klc, this fellow keep misunderstanding me. Mourinho's response will be considering Guardiola told him whats up and actually did it too Then again, he Mourinho told him whats up in the first two clasico's, and the only time Pep could tell him "what was up" was against 10, ...

yeah i agree, as i said in my post, quite a few teams before mourinho figured out the playing style that defeated this super barca, mou is a famous case, but there are smaller sides like rubin kazan and hercule that have surprised barcelona in the past the russians, i think, before mou did - and i'...

Its not like Mourinho is the first person to use the park the bus and counter strategy. Everyone has been doing it for many years. I dont particularly remember Man United being very attack minded in semi-final against Barcelona in 2008 or Chelsea in 2009 Its just that Mourinho has the money and expe...

I think Valdes proved he is very good at dealing with counter-attacks. His acrobatic flying punches were awesome when Man United tried long balls :lol: I relish the idea of facing Mourinho next season. Even he has claimed that his teams are better in his second season. If Guardiola pulls off 4 strai...

xavi not so much but iniesta is no joke in dribbling him and modric are some of the best. xavi is a good dribbler too, which explains why he can hold on to the ball in the tightest of spaces. he does the pelopina to death. however if by dribbling, you mean running 20 meteres down the field beating ...

Man United pressured brilliantly in the first 10-15 minutes but once when Barcelona got into rhythm, it was game over. Both first goals started when xavi and iniesta stood like 10 meters away from each other, looked around for holes in the man u defence and then goal. Before the second goal, when in...
