  1. Re: If Drogba Leaves - Who Should Chelsea Replace Him With? There are a few possible replacements for Drogba. Ignoring the obvious suggestions of Eto and Ibrahimovic, two players that I don't think are that similar to Drogba, there are players like Amauri, Benzema and Pogrebnyak who may be a good replacement for Drogba. Those three are physical forwards where as Eto is more about pace and Ibrahimovic is more a nonchalant link forward who chips in with the odd spectacular goal (I'm not the biggest fan of Ibrahimovic by the way). Either Milito or Gilardino would also be a shrewd signing and wou
  2. Re: Gianfranco Zola-Best newcomer in management Have to agree. Zola has the players respect which for whatever reason Curbishley didn't seem to have and Clarke is a very good and experienced man to have in the ranks also. The future looks okay again for the Hammers.
  3. Re: Iniesta or Diego ? Very hard to gauge. Iniesta appears to edge it slightly and I wouldn't argue with anybody who feels this way. However lets not forget that Iniesta plays for a team that must be an absolute joy to play for at times with world class players all around him, a luxury that Diego doesn't have. Wait until Diego moves to a bigger club and then he may prove to be just as good as Iniesta. Both remarkable players though.
  4. Re: Russian Risers? What about Fayzulin. On the few occasions that I've seen Zenit play he's always impressed me. Does anybody feel that he could rise to an 89 in the next changes?
  5. Re: Mcgregor and fergison at it again. McGregor is no loss at all. He's undoubtedly an inferior goalkeeper to Craig Gordon and not any better than David Marshall and was only considered for the Scotland No 1 due to Gordon being out of favour at Sunderland at the moment. Ferguson on the other hand, when fit is a decent centre mid but why he was ever made Scotland captain is beyond me. He's never seemed fully committed to me when playing for Scotland. In short, Ferguson is 31 years old now so we should already be looking for a replacement for him and there is ample cover in the goalkeeping depa
  6. Re: What CB should I buy? Try and get Diego Godin or Javier Gonzalo Rodriguez if they're available. Both are 90 rated and have a good chance of rising to 91 in the next Spanish ratings.
  7. Re: What sneakers to buy? You can't beat a pair of black, addidas sambas. It's the only trainer that'll ever wear.
  8. Re: the best song in the world ever Oasis' "Whatever", with an honourable mention for Madness with "Baggy Trousers".
  9. Re: German Changes Very disappointed with some of these German changes indeed. I understand with Pander dropping, although he's a higher calibre of player than an 88 rating he hasn't played/started enough this season so I can't grumble too much about that one. However, what on earth were Bordon and Castro dropped for? I can't work those two changes out. Nobody could've seen those coming. A complete joke!
  10. Re: Amir Khan Fight On Saturday Agreed 100%. Kahn's had the money flashed infront of him for fighting a few dummies and it's only now that he's come unstuck and lost a fight in an embarrasing fashion that he realises how hard a proffession he's in. I'm not a fan of boxer's who have done well in the Olympics being given the big build up as they start their proffessional careers. Amateur and proffessional boxing are two completely different sports in my book. It's just greedy promoters trying to make a quick buck.
  11. Re: Amir Khan Fight On Saturday I can't believe that they've matched Kahn against Barerra unless Kahn's management believe Barerra to be "shot" or are they going for broke because there's a World Title at stake? Barerra, for my money, should destroy Kahn. Kahn is a very talented, offensive boxer but not a very good defensive one. Add that to the fact that Kahn has no chin and no toughness then it leads me to think that Barerra will have an easy nights work infront of him.
  12. Re: An Absolutely Titanic Issue!!! I have to say this has been great. The TV's been terrible tonight but this has kept me thoroughly entertained.
  13. Re: Keeper help please! Depends on how much you want to spend on a GK. Van Der Sar should go on for another season or two yet. However you you want a younger keeper who is highly rated then maybe somone like Adler or Mandanda. Valdes isn't too bad, he shouldn't drop anyway. As for Robben and Navas, my guess is they will both increase in rating by 1.
  14. Re: An Absolutely Titanic Issue!!! Cheers Bob. I aim to please.
  15. Re: An Absolutely Titanic Issue!!! Fire and ice. We're never going to agree. I know that you can't possibly hold Taylor's slight offence in the same regard as Zidane's on Matterazzi but I also know that you'll never admit that as you feel that'll weaken your stance in some way. No problem. I don't have a massive desire to make you agree with me, I just merely want to post my opinions on the subject. I'll openly admit that I wouldn't of taken what Taylor did lying down but it would've been in the heat of the moment and I'd probably have got myself sent off, because I wouldn't miss. I certainly
  16. Re: Alvaro Negredo and Markel Susaeta Thanks for the replies guys, much appreciated.
  17. Re: An Absolutely Titanic Issue!!! Yes I saw the replay and Taylor never connected, he brushed Ronaldo. Taylor must have a terrible squint if he was actually trying to connect properly. Nobody could've missed from there.
  18. Re: An Absolutely Titanic Issue!!! I'm sorry to stray slightly off topic but Ronaldo wasn't punched in the back of the neck/head at all and nobody can say that there was intent from Taylor to punch him in the neck/head either because if the intent was there then Taylor would've connected. I mean how can you miss when the other guy doesn't even know that the punch is coming? No, Taylor threw the "punch" or cuff as I would like to call it, to deliberately miss Ronaldo over his left shoulder. Why, only Taylor knows but a booking for me was about right. As for answering the question, hetrosexuall
