  1. Carlo still needs to work on his English a bit more. I think he would like to stay to perhaps prove a point to some people in England, particularly after the way things worked out for him last season. I couldn't see him ever going to Spuds, they don't have the funds for him and Dalglish will be at Liverpool for as long as he wants the job. I still think he will end up going back to Roma when Enrique is inevitably sacked in a few months.
  2. Excellent film. Malick's finest work in my book. Also very close to Sean Penn's. Not sure about the AN comparison, the original version of that film is something else. Then again Martin Sheen, Robert Duvall, Marlon Brando and Dennis Hopper is a pretty tough cast to top, even if Brando was grossly overweight and didn't know his lines. That said as far a Vietnam films go I still prefer the Deer Hunter (though a bit of a different twist admittedly.)
  3. Will have to disagree with you on one of those points wwax. I've seen The Who and the Stone live in the last 5 years, and I'd say they were still easily better than most of the modern acts I've seen, with perhaps the exception of Muse in 2007 or 08 (can't remember right now) who were quite phenomenal (and I wouldn't call myself a Muse fan) Of course I'm not old enough to have seen either in their prime, and I think it depends on the performance, but something like 'Get Yer Ya Ya's Out' or 'A Brussels Affair' are as good as music gets IMO. I think most bands are much looser on stage. But that
  4. You won't be called all kinds of names by me Maks. I was blown away by how amazing she was. I knew of her reputation as an exellent bass player, but her voice knocked me flat.
  5. This isn't accompanied by a clip but I am giving Bowie: A Reality Tour, a listen atm. It's from his last tour he did in 2003 but was only released last year. Some of the versions on the album are phenomenal. If you're a Bowie fan I promise you won't be disappointed.
  6. Spot on Gem. He added a 30 yard screamer to his assist yesterday.
  7. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axb2sHpGwHQ One of the best songs ever to go number 1 in my view. The chord progression is brilliant.
  8. Just shows you the difference between the leagues.
  9. Interesting interview with Ballack in the Fail today: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2033390/Michael-Ballack-Chelseas-high-turnover-managers-egos-players-Roman-Abramovich.html?
  10. Lord Percy has apparently quit playing for Portugal. Walked out on their training camp, seems a bit odd. He always seemed pretty serene to me. http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/sport/football/3788220/Ricardo-Carvalho-quits-after-Portugal-walk-out.html
  11. What a goal that was. What happened to that Malouda? He was unplayable that month. He looked the best winger in the world.
  12. You doubting Thomas ozboy! Go to bed and when you wake up all will be well in the world of CFC. At least that's what I'm going to do shortly.
  13. Lazy journalism from L'Equipe. Kalou was at the Lille v Marseille game and all of a sudden he is joining Lille. It's akin to the rubbish about VDW joining someone because he was in London.
  14. Can anyone tell me exactly why Bayern would want Malouda? I nearly think we can put fanatix in the same pile as caughtoffside, tribalfootball and goal.com as publishing utter bullsh*t.
  15. Diver yes, but as much as I love Alex I'd snap their hand off if they offered Krasic in exchange.
  16. Perhaps Roman is a southpaw.
  17. He could have fooled me opening up the body to spray those through balls off the left to Bale.
  18. Yet another link to yet another left footer. Modric, Mata, Pereira, Johnson. Obviously it's tribalfootball and they actually do make stuff up, but can right footed people not play football?
  19. Well his name is pronounced differently of course. But the readers of the Mail or the Sun won't know that so I'm sure the headline will be a tempting one.
  20. The real value of a player from my understanding is in the wages. Which is why Modric is worth so much to Spurs. He is on nothing, where a player who would be bought in to replace him of anywhere near his ability would be worth at least twice as much as they are paying him. Even with a huge transfer fee, a player to replace Modric in terms of wages and the fee would probably go well in excess of a 30m offer for example.
  21. What has anyone done to be worth that much? The player is valued at what two clubs agree on, I wouldn't have given United 80m for Ronaldo but RM's valuation was different to mine and it was pretty spot on with Fergie's, so 80m he is worth.
  22. Not sure about Arsenal. I think they have strengthened the wings pretty significantly this summer, with Oxlade Chamberlain and Gervinho joining, to add to Walcott and Arshavin. With the departures of Nasri and Fabregas they'll be looking for someone more centrally I'd say.
  23. No disagreement there mate, but I'm questioning whether he is for sale or not. I wouldn't think he is. Then again, he can throw a bit of a strop apparently, so if our interest firms up he might try and force an exit.
  24. Sorry I think I cut my comments on gee off, but 26m for Hazard sounds fishy to me. With CL football to play and a new season that has started poorly, I'd think they'd be very reticent to let him go, at least right now. I think Kakuta might secure us first refusal though, or at least that is what we should be aiming for.
  25. My understanding is that he would still be eligible for the round of 16. Just not the group stages. But of course with Spuds the only suitor they wouldn't exactly be worried about him being cup-tied
