Another big day tomorrow after two solid CL games today. Then the classico on Saturday.
Neymar to Barca is warming up as word is leaked out that Barca will be a serious seller in the first month of summer. Villa to Arsenal, Tello to Atletico, and Adriano to PSG. I think Neymar stays with his word and doesnt transfer to Barca until August 2014. I would watch for PSG with him as well though.
I think Chelsea is set up to where they simply need to sign 1-2 more elite prospects and just develop the group. Oscar, Hazard, and Lukaku could be great. 20, 21, 19 respectively there. Mceachern in the midfield is very encouraging for them. I think they need to bolster their back and keep Lampard to steer the ship. Remember they have Phillipe Courtois as well in goal whos on loan at Atletico. They could sell Cech at any time and bring him back, pocket the money and still have an elite keeper. Courtois is 22.

Are you hispanic?
Will be interesting to say the least to see how Real Madrid reinvent themselves this summer. They need to get younger, faster, imo. I think they finally sell Kaka and move 2-3 other central players. They really missed out on Lucas Moura, dude should be a Blanco.
Europe doesn't play football
Teein' Off on Links
Oh, ya. This is 'Merica
It's also not cool to dick ride the rich teams.
SC, any discussion of the mid-table teams?
So pissed I have class tomorrow during the United-Real game
Not mid-table but atleast fiscally responsible with a balanced budget, been a die hard lilly white since about 06. Can't wait for FFP rules to go into full effect.
I agree. At least Man City and PSG admit they are just front loading while the rules are soft and then they are going full youth team develop/training ground expansion. Barcelona has taken over the soccer world and done it spending 100s of millions of dollars less than Real have to form their starting lineups.
I expect PSG to consistently have the best African talents coming through it.
I like Tottenham a lot. They play a good brand and have a lot of talent yet grit to them.
Barca's youth system was way ahead of its time and still to this days produces tons of talent.
I like watching Tottenham play just for Bale, guy is so good.
PSG for now, Lyon and Marsaille a good bit as always...African talent will always come through France.
This is my favorite Spurs team in a while, I don't think there's a faster team in the prem. A can't miss striker and a replacement for Ledley King is the only thing holding us back.
Go Potters. Stoke City!
Anybody who doesn't like Barca is either a Madrid fan, an Espanyol fan, or just a huge hater. The player development is phenomenal and what people sleep on is coach development, they develop guys to run their system instead of spending huge to get 'big names' who wanna change the whole team and buy all new players.
Thanks for buying Palacios and Crouch
Yep. And much like the Spanish national team as a whole (quite connected aren't they) the talent seems to somehow be crescendoing. Sergi Samper, Dongou, Rafinha, Thiago, Bartra and Grimaldo are all likely world class talents within 5 years. Samper is the best prospect out since Giovanni Dos Santos who plateaued hard. We'll see where this next generation takes the Catalans with very little help from outside the province.
Gio saw how cool it was to party with 'dinho and forgot he had to actually work to get there.
I'm a casual fan that only roots for Stoke City because that's where my family (Staffords) originate from.
Our director is a nefarious jew who swindles teams habitually, we sold you 2 players who weren't worth a damn.
Heard that but didnt believe it for some reason. I know the buck toothed one is a major issue. Dude cut his brilliance short by 3 years by going the Maradona route.
I don't root for Barca, I'm a United fan, but love Ronaldo so root for Madrid out of the Spanish teams, but I definitely respect and appreciate what Barca is doing and has done.
Why do you like a team that plays Rugby ?
I didn't know only Hispanics like Soccer.
Stoke City is in Staffordshire. My surname is Stafford. I didn't want to root for a well established team just for the hell of it. This made more sense, and they kind of fit the Detroit mentality.
