  1. Re: Luiz Muriqui - AVAI Talent! Very nice find Hunty. One of the revelations of the season in the Brasileirao. Keep it up hope to see more of these finds.
  2. Re: Laio - Botafogo gem Just saw the extended highlights of the match and Laio was decent. Botafogo lost 4-3 largely to the incompetence of the defence and Renan in this particular game. One of the worst defensive displays i have seen in my life. Again Laio only had 2 chances from hat i saw in the extensive highlights. Insider did he play well?
  3. Re: Bundesliga Analysis & Predictions 2008/2009 Brilliant post! Quality predictions and reasons and for that this is easily one of the best threads on SM. Well done must of taken heaps of time.
  4. Re: UTD confirm Tevez departure Work rate means nothing. Would you rather a non stop working striker who bags 5 goals a season or a lazy stiker with low work rate who bags 25 goals a season? With Ronaldo gone Manchester want a player who will get the goals because there main supply of goals (Ronaldo) has been cut off. I kind of agree with you Sinny but i think Berbatov is class and just what Manchester needs up front a target man to hold up the play and release.
  5. Re: UTD confirm Tevez departure Tevez was given his chance why should he play that extra 400 minutes when he isn't doing his job and thats scoring goals. + Rooney adds so much more to the team defensively and just getting involved in overall play.
  6. Re: UTD confirm Tevez departure Rooney scored 7 more goals then Tevez this season and has only played 400 minutes more then him! Rooney is a cut above Tevez.
  7. Re: UTD confirm Tevez departure So your saying that you would pay 25 million pounds and really high wages for a striker who had a goal return of 5 in the league? High work rate or not strikers are there to bang in the goals and Tevez hasn't this season. No doubt a great player though. Seriously i SAF has got a lot of thinking to do. Ronaldo goes for 80 million but then again he has Tosic and Nani at his disposal. I would buy back Rossi from Villarreal i think Manchester have a buy back clause in his contract. Can anyone confirm that?
  8. Re: UTD confirm Tevez departure I personally think its a great move by Manchester not signing him. He is no where near worth 25 million and Benzema beckons.
  9. Statement on Man Utd's website.. Club statement on Tevez Following contact received from Carlos Tevez’s advisors last night, in advance of the deadline the Club set for concluding negotiations, Manchester United announces that Carlos will not be signing a new contract with the Club. The Club agreed to pay the option price of £25.5m and offered Carlos a five-year contract which would have made him one of its highest paid players. Disappointingly however, his advisors informed the Club that, despite the success he has enjoyed during one of the Club’s most successful periods, he does not wish to continue playing for Manchester United. The Club would like to thank Carlos for his services over the last two seasons and wishes him good luck for the future. Discuss...
  10. Re: Samir Fazli Has signed a long term deal with Heerenveen (Spelling) in Holland.
  11. Re: Arsenal Gossip Fair enough actually but the last thing we need is Toure and Vermaelen as our two CBs. Any above 1.85/86 will topple both of them. Chamakh, NO WAY. I would seriously rather Lisandro.
  12. Re: Laio - Botafogo gem I will only be able to watch the match from about the 60th minutes so if anyone else can watch it and tell me how laio goes it will be really appreciated. Cheers.
  13. Re: Guide to the 2009 Brazilian season Felipe Coutinho is playing right now for Vasco. Currently making his debut and is playing okay for anyone that is interested here is the link. http://www.justin.tv/essinhodalheporco
  14. Re: Official Manchester City Thread Very optimistic! I would predict Blackburn 1-2 City City 2-1 Wolves Portsmouth 1-1 City City 1-3 Arsenal United 2-0 City West Ham 1-1 City Roque Santa Cruz for 18 Million that is insane. Your the only club in the world who would play that amount of money for Roque Cruz. It really is starting to become a joke. So many more players out there that would be way more cheaper and of the same or even higher quality! Someone like Llorenete (Bilbao), Borriello (Milan), Radamel Falcao (River), Grafite (Wolfsburg), Vagner Love or even Lisandro lopez for a further 4 Million. Sorry but Mark Hughes isn't taking advantage of the fact he has millions at his disposal. Hes trying to improve city by buying decent players for enormous amounts of money where he could buy brilliant players for the same or just a little more. Man City won't finish better then 7th this season.
  15. Re: Edin Dzeko- is he the Real thing? He has had one good season. For me he is another normal striker nothing special. Until i see another season where he prolifically scores then i will believe that he is the real deal. No doubt he is good and has potential but he could be another one season wonder as seen many, many, many times before.
  16. Re: Arsenal Gossip Toure & Gallas won't leave. I reckon Vermaelen (Spelling) will be used prominently as a defensive midfielder. I've seen him about twice and he was fairly solid and has the build and attributes to become a successful DM. One transfer i would love would be getting rid of Adebayor and bringing in Lisandro Lopez. Ade goes for 20 mil Lisandro comes in for 20 - 22 Mil.
  17. Re: Guide to the 2009 Brazilian season Wow! Saw on Globo Esporte that Villareal have confirmed their interest in Tiago Dutra. I honestly feel that he has more of a chance at Villarreal then Gremio ATM. There selling him to keep Souza which is pretty fair i guess. I guess this means that Tiago is pretty much certain to go to Villarreal. 1.2 Million for a player with only one professional game played is a massive risk but fair play to Villarreal as this 1.2 Mil can soon turn into 20 Mil.
  18. Re: Tiago Dutra **NEXT BIG THING** http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yxc5tC8EhpE More vids of Tiago Dutra. He really is impressive and i just don't know why he isn't playing. Hes incredible. Honestly he is better then most of these so called "wonderkids" you see these days. Hopefully with Gremio not really doing that well he will get some game time because he really in the next big thing according to the title. I think Dutra is just as talented as Douglas Costa, yes i went there
  19. Re: Emmanuel Mbola Don't see a lot of talented youngsters in Armenia but i think you've just uncovered one....Great report too.
  20. Re: Laio - Botafogo gem Yep, just saw the report on Globosport and i will most probably be watching the game. I'll let you know how he plays. If he performs this week against Vitoria this will really benefit him and will see way more game time. But then will probably have to settle for a bench spot as soon as Reinaldo comes back into contention.
  21. Re: Full look at Brazil: Part 1- FLAMENGO I will answer the Porto bit and that answer is no. He has been loaned out for two years and Porto want to get rid of him as soon as possible for 4 Million Euros. Looked promising in his first season but really flopped in the second. So no Ibson for Porto ever again unless Jesualdo Ferreira has a change of heart..
  22. Re: Full look at Brazil: Part 1 Wo! A lot of work and effort put into this one...Well done.
  23. Re: Aly Cissokho - F.C.Porto´s new signing (now at Milan) Only person that can replace Lisandro now is a Brazilian. Probably not Kierrison as he has too many big clubs after him and he will command a big transfer fee. Rather someone like Taison, Tardelli or someone Argentinian. Porto is probably the best gateway for a Brazilian to get into Europe as a work permit with limited restrictions is required and its a top league.
