Football Thread: Brought back popular demand!
« on: September 04, 2013, 09:17:20 am »
Arsenal break their transfer record and pay more than Manchester City or United ever has (Only Chelsea surpass us with a £50 million transfer for Torres that amounted to like 6 goals)

Manchester United are in complete shambles and somewhere in England Nameless' current reaction is like;



Real Madrid are still insane and live in some alternate reality.

Guardiola still continues to hunt Mourinho's nightmares.

I think that's the major news covered! My personal hope is with the purchase of Ozil Arsenal can win a trophy, let's do it boys!

Not a huge soccer fan, hockey is definitely my sport, but i do enjoy watching it every once in a while. I follow L.A. Galaxy from time to time as well. One of the more recent big deals in the MLS was Dempsey's trade to Seattle Sounders.

I did not know Dempsey had left Premier League.

Well, I'm excited to watch UEFA's CL games this month.

There were some World Cup Qualifying games this weekend and some of them were quite good.

Ozil has only played for us once and we're already top of the league.



My only worry is our defence. It's actually a pretty solid one looking back at it from last season, but Koscielny really needs to cut out his rash challenges.

^Arsenal and Tottenham together at the top. Great sight :p
Hope that Liverpool loses tomorrow so that things keep interesting. Maybe this can be Arsenal's year.

Meanwhile in Portugal:

Porto is still alone in the lead, and by the looks of it, it will stay that way until the end.
Sporting is in great form, I'm excited to see Porto/Sporting play, I think Porto's stronger tho. And Benfica is still in the shitter. Last time Benfica had a clean sheet was well into last season!!

European football approaches, Porto and Benfica have easy matches, Austria Wien and Anderlecht respectively. It's obligatory to win.

Tonight's Football Trivia:
Last time Porto played in the Ernst-Happel-Stadion (Ausrtia Wien's home ground) for the top European competition was in the 1987 European Cup Final against Bayern Munich, won with the crucial help of Madjer's magical backheel.

It was Porto's first international success, followed by Porto's only European SuperCup and the first Intercontinental Cup.

Somewhere in England? Somewhere in Manchester haha, but yeah...although United were so lucky against Crystal Palace. (actually, I was in London when I heard Man United lost the last match)

Ozil to score more than Torres, it's too bad those odds aren't great since it's bound to happen.

I think Liverpool at the top would be a tragedy...would rather have Arsenal, Tottenham or even Chelsea (god forbid) there right now.

Everton are doing surprisingly well so far, and beat Chelsea.

This is Martinez when they won:


Edit: Prediction of final places this Season.

1. Tottenham (given how many players tat came through)
2. Man City
3. Chelsea
4. Arsenal
5. Man United

I didn't see FC Barcelona in any of the Champions League seeds, did they qualify?

Yes, they qualified as Spanish Champions. They play tomorrow against Ajax from Holland.

Call it a funny feeling, but something tells me they'll steamroll even City when it comes to that match.

Arsenal have a chance though...since they're currently at the top.

I heard that City beat Wigan 5-0 in the League Cup...

Did Arsenal beat someone 3-2 or something? Hoping United lose to Liverpool tonight like the other week.
