Yeah he is superhuman for a footballer! Sounds right. If you get that long out of him I'd definitely agree as he's a clear level above Bale at the moment and no guarantee Bale reaches that level.

He doesn't get injured that often does he?

Cracking free-kicks from Pirlo and Suarez in the Confederations Cup today. The tournament has started brightly although the BBC commentators really went over the top Brazil and Neymar.

Soldado and Jordi Alba in particular were a disgrace.

Ronaldo has been fortunate to have a pretty injury free career, just a couple of minor one here and there, no extensive time out and nothing that has had any long term affect.

Suarez really showing he's a top class striker, and has probably out grown the current anfield outfit.

Liverpool will have a tough time next season without him, and I doubt he's really replaceable. I'm still holding out on cavani for RM though .




Although I'm not a big fan of diving either, I do understand why players do it. There are many times calls don't go in your favor in a match, including fouls against you'll definitely feel the next day, a dive here and there, forces more people to ensure they play the ball and hope the referee makes the right call.


I imagine spain will win the confederations cup, considering how deep there bench really is.

Txiki wants 4-3-3, beautiful football, high pressing, possession... He's a cruyffista so we'll be more positive next season.

Without a doubt Hoddle has a good knowledge of tactics, I know a few guys who went to his school in Spain as Sunday League players and have come back to play in the conference, they all say the same thing, he's know's his stuff, but he's so arrogant and out of touch that it becomes a chore to train. He doesn't realise that to most young players he isn't known as the undoubtedly world class player he was, he's the crazy ex England manager. It's fine when guys are paying you to reignite their careers, but a bunch of guys who have already made it is a different kettle of fish.

TBH I think you need someone who not only knows his stuff, but a guy who the players look up to. Someone like Scholes would be an ideal coach for the Under 21's and lower IMO. He knows all about football with and without the ball. Also so much of Barca's success IMO was the way the players looked up to and worshipped Guardiola. Scholes is one of the few England players who has that equivalent standing over here.

Pity the bloke would never do it.

I don't know about that. I mean, he's said he wants to get into coaching but for someone who shuns the spotlight as much as he does, I can't see him coaching anything other than a League 2 side.

The Barcelona players' claims about Mourinho are becoming more and more farcical. We get it, you hate the guy, he beat you this season fair and square, two times in a row and now that the season's ended and he's had a pretty bad one by his standards and has also left Spanish football, you feel compelled to spill utter drivel such as this towards him. **** off.

its all anti Rael mind games - Barca have no class when it comes to playing mind games, the comments from their players when we drew them in the champions league in 07 were incredibly disrespectful, especially when you consider that 1) we won the damn thing 2 season before and 2) we'd won it 3 more times then them!

even after we beat them 2-1 n their home turf they didnt take any humble pie and instead continued the disrespect in the build up to the second leg

Cavani is great for sure but Suarez I think is that special type of player that rises to the big occasion and may be the bigger hit at Real.

I'm not sold on Southgate either but he has been studying a lot of newer coaching methods since his management days so maybe he's improved.

You're right that Hoddle most likely isn't recognized for the class player he was, my Dad always says he was ahead of his time in this country, but at U21 level I think that might be less of an issue than when he has to deal with senior pros.

Scholes wanting to manage has surprised me given his personality but I see your point if he'd be willing. Honestly I think Gary Neville may well be the next great English manager if he can translate his passion and intelligence for the game from punditry to management.

I think the U21's and the Confederations Cup are holding up a lot of transfer business, hopefully we have 2 or 3 irons in the fire.

Agreed. If he does return it will be in his heart than just collecting paycheck everyweek. I would love to see him back if possible that is.

Isco himself has said that he has offers from Real & City & at this particular moment in time it is favourable him to work with Pellegrini again however it's not definitive as he has alot of friends & connections with Madrid as well & plans on taking a holiday after the U21 Championship & then make his decision.

Isco said he'll decide this week and according to Bautista and Hunter if he'll choose Real he'd earn more money. But he'd have to compete with Callejon, Benzema, Ozil, Modric, Ronaldo, Di Maria and maybe Bale or Suarez. Also they change their managers every year and after all... Real won only two or three trophies in last five seasons (like City). I'm confident.

Seems like Bafana (south Africa)has been thrown a very thin life line,as it seems that Ethiopia fielded an ineligible player over the weekend,meaning they have been docked 3 points from their win against South Africa,giving SA a slim chance of still qualifying for the world cup.

This would mean Ethiopia will have to lose to Central African Republic (bottom of the log) and South Africa will have to beat Botswana (which I don't see happening)

Togo did it as well, but they're already out so it doesn't matter. It seems to happen in Africa quite a lot for some reason.
