Maysun bhai since Higuain (and also Kaka) are leaving Madrid who do want to see at Madrid? I think we will get Aguero which is good.

Maysun
April 21, 2013, 09:49 PM
Higuain is not leaving. I am sure he'll stay.

Kaka may finally be off loaded. Alonso is not going to extend his contract, so we need to find a good replacement for him, which is vital and the foremost thing we must do. Apparently, RM has already begun scouting and negotiations with interested parties, one of them being, Pogba from Juventus.

BengaliPagol
April 22, 2013, 01:34 AM
How are you so sure Higuain is staying? All reports are linking him to Arsenal and Tottenham. I think his dad wants him to play in the EPL as well. Kaka has been dissapointing for a while which is sad for a guy with so much potential. RM bought him for quite a bit of coin so we will have more money to persue someone when he leaves.

I'm very excited about the Bale rumours. Hope he comes.

May 31, 2013, 08:54 AM
^ i know.. But look at this just from sports perspective.. He is probably the best player excluding Messi and CR7 (if you minus his behaviour :p) .. And getting a player of this class just around 40m in this market? This is insane..And consider this Cavani will cost 60m+ for sure. Falcao is going to monaco..Even though suarez finishing isnot in the same level of Cavani or Falcao yet but overall he is better than both of these.. If our new coach can manage him properly, just imagine what will happen.. :)
C7-Suarez-Bale :notworthy:

Maysun
May 31, 2013, 09:07 AM
Yes yes but I think Cavani will be a better choice. He is more of a traditional No. 9 than Suarez. And that is what RM has been lacking.

Yes yes but I think Cavani will be a better choice. He is more of a traditional No. 9 than Suarez. And that is what RM has been lacking.

I don't think so.. Suarez will bring lot more in the table than cavani.. his link up play,dribbling ability is excellent.. Having him on the pitch will create space for Cr7 and others.. None of todays strikers go at defenders like him.. and considering ,we still have lots of signing to do,it doesn't make sense to bring cavani for 60m+. Bale will also cost maybe 70m.. Imo,change of scenerio will do good for suarez.

Maysun
May 31, 2013, 09:39 AM
Well yes, that is why I don't want Suarez. Because Benzema is playing almost exactly the same role - holding up and creating space. Considering it is Higuain who is leaving, I think it'll be better if we have a diverse striker playing different roles.

But that being said, i think it'll be Suarez who'll probably end up in Madrid. He can't play for another 10 EPL games and the English media won't leave him anytime soon. So looks like it'll be Suarez.

What a game Australia vs Iraq was. Australia came into the match needing to win the match to qualify for the World Cup. It was meant to be an easy task for Australia. Australia dominated but didn't make use of their opportunities. Suddenly there was 10 mins left of the game and Holger Oseick (manager) made a very controversial decision in taking off Australia's Golden Boy TImmy Cahill and putting on the unknown Josh Kennedy. He also took off the goal threat Robbie Kruse.

I honestly thought it was the stupidest mistake Oseick could do because Cahill is such an aerial threat and Kruse is a goal scorer. But 3 mins later when everything was looking tense and Australia's chances of qualifying for the World Cup looked slim, Bresciano put in a nice cross from just outside the penalty box and the unknown Josh Kennedy heads it into the back off the net. He becomes zero to hero just like that. A saviour is born.

Australia win 1-0 and book their place in the World Cup. It was overall a scrappy, less entertaining match but the last 10mins were the most intense and heart-throbbing for any Australian Socceroos Supporter. If Kennedy didn't score then Oseick would have copped a lot of criticism for the substitutions he made and would have lost his job in the process. It turned out to be a masterstroke of a plan.

Suarez would be good with Ronaldo up front.

I woke up early to watch Nigeria vs Spain expecting a whooping but i was highly impressed by the Nigerian team. Even though it was 3-0 they beat the Spain defenders on a number of occasions and should have scored 2 or 3 goals.

Their midfield is good but their finishing was very poor. They missed 2 shockers up front that should have been put away. Musa was very impressive on the wing. One to watch out for the future. Only 20 years of age. So much potential.

It was a very good match to watch.

US just lost to Costa Rica 3-1 in the WC qualifying. Not a surprising result considering the fact that we never really won there. Good news for us is that our next 2 matches are at home, so we should still be able to punch our tickets for Brazil in next year's WC.

You guys see Mexico losing at home to Honduras 2-1? 1st loss at home in qualifies for Mexico in 77 matches. Ouch. The coach will definitely be out now. They're in real trouble now having to face us next and then Panama. They're in danger of not even being able to go to the WC next year which would be a shocker. I feel they'll be able to make it but they might have to play New Zealand in the playoffs which would be tough.

We've officially qualified! Costa Rica has as well. Relieved to see we're through and we can afford to rest our starters for the next 2 dead rubbers. The next step is to now focus hard on the WC and do well. Don't want to see us getting ousted in group play.

Can't believe that Mexico is in 5th now. That means, if the results hold, they wouldn't even be able to play NZ in order to qualify. Can't imagine a WC without Mexico. I feel they'll eventually qualify though but doubt they'll do anything in the WC.

Neymar has posted a show of support on Instagram for his Barcelona and Brazil teammate Dani Alves after the full-back was the target of racist abuse during Barcelona’s game at Villarreal.
After having a banana aimed at him on the pitch, Alves promptly picked up the banana and took a bite out of it before tossing it aside and getting on with the game.
For his bold approach in dealing with racists, Dani Alves has been the subject of adoration across Twitter (http://www.101greatgoals.com/blog/best-twitter-reaction-as-barcelonas-dani-alves-deals-amazingly-with-disgusting-racism/) and Neymar continued the social media frenzy by praising his teammate.
In the post he writes, “Dani Alves owned him. Take That bunch of Racists..We are all Monkeys So What.“

ওল্ড ট্রাফোর্ডে ম্যানচেস্টার ইউনাইটেড বনাম নরউইচ ম্যাচটি দেখা, ওল্ড ট্রাফোর্ড স্টেডিয়াম ঘুরে দেখা আর হোটেলের প্রাঙ্গণে নিজেরা নিজেরাই গা ঘামিয়ে নেওয়া—প্রথম তিনটি দিন কেটে গেল এভাবেই। এয়ারটেল উদীয়মান তারকাদের আসল কাজটা শুরু হলো কাল থেকে। ম্যানচেস্টার ইউনাইটেড সকার স্কুলে পাঁচ দিনব্যাপী প্রশিক্ষণ।
প্রথমে জানা গিয়েছিল, প্রশিক্ষণ হবে ম্যানচেস্টার ইউনাইটেডের প্রথম দলের অনুশীলন ভেন্যু ক্যারিংটন মাঠে। ইউনাইটেড কর্তৃপক্ষ পরে নিশ্চিত করেছে, ওখানে হবে শুধু শেষ দিনের প্রশিক্ষণ। কাল তাই শুরু হলো সেলফোর্ড সিটি রেডস স্টেডিয়ামে। এটি আসলে রাগবি দল সেল শার্কসের মাঠ। এটাও দুর্দান্ত।
কৃত্রিম সবুজ ঘাসে ঢাকা মাঠের চারদিকের টিলায় ওক-পাইনের সারি। খানিক দূরেই একটা বেসরকারি বিমানঘাঁটি। খুব নিচু দিয়ে বিমান উড়ে যাচ্ছে। অনীক, সোহান, হাফিজ, খোকন, মাহবুব, মশিউরদের স্বপ্নগুলোও তো এ রকম নিচু থেকে অনেক ওপরে উঠতে শুরু করল। বিস্ময়ভরা চোখ নিয়ে ওরা পা ফেলল সবুজ গালিচায়, ‘এত সুন্দর মাঠ আমরা কখনো দেখিনি। যদি দেশে এমন মাঠে খেলার সুযোগ পেতাম!’
বড় এই মাঠটার দুই প্রান্তে একই সঙ্গে শুরু হলো দুটি দলের প্রশিক্ষণ। এক প্রান্তে বাংলাদেশ, অন্য প্রান্তে ভারত। খেলোয়াড় সংখ্যায় বাংলাদেশের কাছে বৃহৎ প্রতিবেশী ভারত গোল খেয়ে গেল। বাংলাদেশ এয়ারটেল রাইজিং স্টার দলে ১২ জন খেলোয়াড়, ভারতের দলে ১১ জন!
প্রধান প্রশিক্ষক মিক বেনেট, তাঁর দুই সহকারী ড্যান বারবার ও অ্যান্ডি কানিংহ্যাম। প্রথম দিনে তরুণ এই দুই সহকারী কোচই মাঠে নেমে প্রশিক্ষণ দিলেন। পার্শ্বরেখায় দাঁড়িয়ে তত্ত্বাবধান করলেন বেনেট। বাংলাদেশ দলের প্রশিক্ষক বারবারই বেশি তরুণ, বয়স কোনোক্রমেই ত্রিশ পেরোনোর কথা নয়। অ্যান্ডি তাঁর চেয়ে বড়জোর দুই বছরের বড়।
অথচ কী অসাধারণ এঁদের প্রশিক্ষণ-পদ্ধতি! ফুটবলের পেশাদার জগতে এখন তরুণ কোচদের ছড়াছড়ি কেন, এর মধ্যেই তো উত্তরটা পাওয়া যায়।
খেলোয়াড়দের সঙ্গে সুসম্পর্ক গড়ে তোলার জন্য দু-একটি ভিনদেশি শব্দ জেনে রাখা উচিত। বারবার দ্রুত দৌড়ে এলেন এয়ারটেল বাংলাদেশের মার্কেটিং কমিউনিকেশনস ম্যানেজার মামুন আর রশিদের কাছে। বলুন তো ‘হাউ আর ইউ’ ‘ভেরি গুড’ আর ‘থ্যাংক ইউ’র বাংলা কী হবে? শব্দগুলো জেনে নিয়েই ছেলেদের কাছে জানতে চাইলেন বারবার, ‘তোমরা কেমন আছ?’ সমস্বরে উত্তর, ‘খুব ভালো, স্যার।’ নিদের্শনামতো অনুশীলন ঠিক করতে পারলে সঙ্গে সঙ্গেই কোচ ছেলেদের বললেন, ‘খুব ভালো, খুব ভালো। ধন্যবাদ।’
কোচের সঙ্গে একাত্ম হয়ে এয়ারটেলের ১২ জন উদীয়মান তারকা প্রথম সেশনটি করল দারুণ তৃপ্তির সঙ্গে। দুই ঘণ্টার স্কিল ট্রেনিংয়ে একটুও ক্লান্তি বোধ করল না তারা!
স্কিল ট্রেনিংয়ের প্রথমে হলো, এক বনাম এক বল নিয়ন্ত্রণ, সংঘবদ্ধ আক্রমণ, সংঘবদ্ধ রক্ষণ ও তিন বনাম তিন ম্যাচ। এক বনাম একে রিয়াল মাদ্রিদের সুপারস্টার ক্রিস্টিয়ানো রোনালদো আর ম্যানচেস্টার ইউনাইটেডের আদনান ইয়ানুজাইকে বেশি করে তুলে ধরলেন বারবার। এ পর্বে ভারতের ছেলেদের চেয়ে বাংলাদেশের ছেলেদের পারফরম্যান্সই উজ্জ্বল মনে হলো। বারবার এই প্রতিবেদককে কাছে ডেকে নিয়ে চুপিচুপি জানতে চাইলেন দুটি ছেলের নাম—অনীক ও মাহবুব। ওদের বেশ মনে ধরেছে কোচের। তবে এটুকুতেই বাকিদের ব্যাপারে যে তাঁর আগ্রহ কম সেটি বুঝে নেওয়ার কোনো কারণ ঘটেনি। অনুশীলনের এখনো চার দিন পড়ে রয়েছে।

I like the balance of the WhoScored team but i think the PFA team is better. Me being Aussie it makes me happy to see Mile Jedinak's name among the best players in the league. He deserves to be there because he has been so consistent throughout the season. I really hope down the track that a big team like Chelsea pick him up so he can be part of Champions League football and become a real classy player. It will be inspirational to the younger Aussie kids who are trying to become elite footballers. He is without a doubt one of my favourite players. I even have his name on my Australia world cup jersey that i recently purchased!

Posted via BC Mobile Edition (Opera Mobile) Giroud? LOL. Your taking it waaay too far. Have you seen his misses this season? Rooney has been great season this year without being spectacular however in the middle period of the season he was in beast mode. I'll agree Sturridge and Aguero (when he wasn't injured) has been better than Rooney. Rooney without a doubt have been carrying Man Utd this year and was better than Lukaku and Rodriguez. Rooney had the 4th most highest assists this season and also the 4th highest number of goals scored (17 goals and 10 assists). Only people ahead of him in goal scoring were Toure, Sturridge and Suarez. Bhai i don't know what your talking about about Rooney being worse than Lukaku, Rodriguez... give Rooney the credit he deserves. Giroud has Cazorla, Rosicky, Ozil, Ramsey putting in clear cut chances for him, Aguero has Silva, Toure, Rodriguez has Lallana, Rooney only had Mata, Shinji but Mata only came half way thru the season. And besides Mata hasn't really set the world on fire and Shinji has been benched for a lot of the season . So considering the situation and circumstances that Rooney had to work with i say he had a pretty darn good season carrying Man Utd and still coming top 5 for assists and goals.

April 29, 2014, 10:00 AM
I would take Toure over Jedinak any day of the week put sometimes defensive work and effort is highly underestimated by football fans. Crystal Palace towards the end of the season have shown they are up there with the one of the best defending teams in the comp and it pretty much due to Jedinak's work. He has 60 more pass intercepts and tackles than any other player in the league.

^ Donovan wasn't going to start anyway. But he would have been the guy who comes off the bench later in the 2nd half to provide that extra spark, that's where this U.S. team will miss him. Klinsman is clearly building for the future, specially now that he got that 4 year contract extension. This might turn out to be a good move in the long run, but we'll have to wait and see. I don't think we are as bad as a lot of people are making us out to be. We have zero chance against Germany, but the other 2 games anything can happen
