Akinfeev Accepts Move to Arsenal

Young goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev has accepted a move to England's giants Arsenal. He will be playing at the Emirates Stadium along with only Lukasz Fabianski since Jens Lehmann and Manuel Almunia are coming to Moscow with 21M. Tom Pham is delighted with this deal since he thinks it's a bargain for Akinfeev and he has got two great goalkeepers now as a replacement along with a lot of cash which can be spent on buying players.

Re: World Championship 1057


Big victory at home today for Espanyol. Once again, Luis Garcia scored for the Barcelona side, giving them a 1-0 victory. The tap in from a foot away was perfectly set up by Clemente Rodriguez. The left back was solid as always. Biglia also played well before coming off for Valdo, who still hasn't found his form. Espanyol are now in 7th, just one point away from promotion. Luis Garcia now tops the division in goals. He is also top in Man Of The Match award.


With the additions of offensive minded Biglia and Gourcuff, Espanyol are rumoured to be searching for new offensive wingers. Riera is rumoured to be one the way out (more on that later), and Rufete is getting old. So Jonas Gutierrez of Mallorca is rumoured to be on the way. Espagnol will face bids from CSKA and Real Madrid as well. They are also rumoured to be after a young South American winger to be developped in the youth squad before being brought in. Anderson Pico of Gremio is as good a guess as any.


After playing in only 1 of the first 3 games and seeing his captaincy stripped and given to Raul Tamudo, Ivan De La Pena seems to be on the way out. Biglia has clearly replaced the midfielder and a bid of about 8.0 sould be enough to get him. Interesting swaps may be considered.


Perhaps Alberto Riera will stay in Espanyol after all. Interest seems to be fading, and Riera is doing well in Barcelona. But a well structured bid from a div.1 team may still get him.


Nothing to report

Re: World Championship 1057

CSKA 1-1 River Plate

Disappointing draw against Argentinian team managed by Greig Spence. It was a good debut for Jens Lehmann when he only conceded one goal. Vagner Love opened the scoring in the 71st minute and later won the MoM but River Plate equalized just sixty seconds later. The game ended 1-1 and CSKA move up to 17th with just one point.

CSKA are after Ayala and Diego Milito as well as Jonas Gutirrez making it an Argentinian squad.

Arne Freidrich joined from Hertha Berlin and costed the club 7M and Chidi Odiah and Aleksandr Salugin.

Luis Ricardinho joined from Besitkas for a fee of 6.9M

A deal for Jonas Gutierrez fell through in the last minutes because of the chairman.

Re: World Championship 1057


Espanyol's head of scouting has been seen 4 times landing in Sao Paolo this week. The rumours of a starlet being signed to Espanyol appear to be true. He has also stated that 6 offers have been made, and still the kid remains in South America. Sources say Anderson Pico is the kid, and Gremio have confirmed "Interest from European Clubs". Stay tuned.


CSKA were heavily favoured, but Jonas Gutierrez has joined Espanyol from Mallorca this week. Going the other way were Domingos Jonatas and Hurtado Moises. The winger subbed in today's match versus Monaco.


Why would manager Farine purchase a 29 year old player rated 74? Good question. The fans are asking it as well, but defender Frantisek Drizdal was bought for his experience. Strange.


Two goals from Raul Tamudo and a single from Lucas Biglia lead Espanyol to a 3-1 victory for Monaco. Jan Koller scored the opener for Monaco. Ivan De La Pena finally started a match, but was subbed out in the 45th minute for Yoann Gourcuff, who assisted on Tamudo's second goal. New acquisition Jonas Gutierrez took Rufete's place at the half, and got his first touch, an assist on Biglia's goal. Biglia got hurt in the match, leading us to think De La Pena could start more. Riera got his third assist of the season.


Espanyol : 3rd

Luis Garcia : 1st in goals, 2nd in MOM's.

Riera : 5th in assists.


Lucas BIGLIA : Injured 12 days (bruised thigh)

Werder Bremen 2-1 Atletico Madrid

The battle of the forumers went the way of Ross, as Berisha's Atletico left Bremen with no points at all.

Werder Bremen starlet Ribas Diego opened the scoring for the hosts after only a minute. Sergio Aguero then equalised for the visitors, before on loan Claudio Pizarro grabbed the winner just before half time for Werder Bremen.

Bremen move to tenth in the league with two wins and two losses. Next up they face FC Porto in Portugal.

Re: World Championship 1057


Anderson Pico wasn't the top South American talent. Peruvian Damian Ismodes was. The 18 year old midfielder has signed with Espanyol from Sporting Cristal. He is a full international, and a starter for Peru at the World Cup Qualifiers. He is 5 years younger than any other Peruvian international (Farfan is next), he has been compared to Robinho and is a true star in the making. He is expected to be a substitute in Espanyol to gain experience.

Re: World Championship 1057

Jermaine Jones Signs, Rating Changes Delights Tom Pham!

CSKA have capture the signing of Jermaine Jones. Jermaine is a German player (although with a very English name) who was signed from FC Schakle 04 who were unmanaged at that time. The fee that CSKA had to pay was just over 1.5M and Tom Pham believes that this German player will be a good substitute for the team.

The rating changes have made Tom Pham's frown into a great smile. Currently sitting in 17th but the changes gets Tom to believe that they can get promotion. He had eight increases this time round and just one decerase.

The increases were

Veniamin Mandrykin: 85-->86

Vasil Berezutsky: 89-->90

Yuri Zhirkov: 89-->90

Silva Vagner Love: 91-->92

Vladimir Granat: 80-->86

Osni Ramon: 85-->87

Dawid Janczyk: 83-->85

Nikita Burmistov: 70-->77

The only decrease was:

Evegeni Aldonin: 90-->89

The next match for CSKA is against Fenerbache, they are hoping to win their first game!

Re: World Championship 1057

CSKA 12-0 Fenerbache!

First win of the season for the Russian team when they demolished the Turkish side 12-0 at home. Tom Pham was stunned to see a striker in goal and a goalie in defense, but oh well, a win is still a win.

Match Analysis

This was a total one-sided game with CSKA possessing the ball up to 65% and having a total of 67 shots on goal while Fenerbache only had 11, more than six times as much! CSKA had ten corners while the away side only had 4, and the Turkish side ended the game with only nine men.

1: A brilliant through-ball leaves Javier LUIS GARCIA with just the keeper to beat and he confidently places it! Great finish!

4: How did that go in?!? A terrible fumble by the keeper gifts Silva VÁGNER LOVE with an easy chance!

6: The keeper parries a powerful shot but Luís RICARDINHO follows up on the rebound!

9: Babacan VOLKAN is sent off after head butting an opponent!

17:Luís RICARDINHO climbs over the defender and heads into the corner of the net!

25: Pablo AIMAR volleys it into the back of the net

31:Silva VÁGNER LOVE won't score an easier goal after a terrible back-pass falls short!

35: JO loses his marker and thumps a low shot under the keeper!

44: A wicked deflection wrong foots the unfortunate stopper! Silva VÁGNER LOVE will take the credit for that!

46: Javier LUIS GARCIA using his pace and power forces his way into the box and lashes home! He's in great form!

49: Yuri ZHIRKOV caresses in a curling shot! What technique!

63: A mix up in midfield enables JO to run through and confidently slams a low shot past the advancing keeper!

73: Arne FRIEDRICH beats two defenders and slots home a great solo effort!

Goal Scorers:

Arne Friedrich (1)

Luis Ricardinho (2)

Javier Luis Garcia (2)

Yuri Zhirkov (1)

Joao Jo (2)

Pablo Aimar (1)

Silva Vagner Love (3)

Man of the Match:
