Lescott moving to Manchester City

Well, after much speculation, I guess, Everton are finally letting go Lescott, to join Manchester City. I guess around for 25 Million Pounds. Manchester City, sure looked weak in the defence. I think he would prove to be a great player in the defence, but the question is what will Everton do without him ???

Please comment what you think?

Manchester united and Manchester city going for Arjen Robben

Well, since i have heard this i have been thinking, how is this possible? To me Robben the former chelsea player, has to be the key player for Real Madrid. But after reading this news. It's quite strange. Well, i don't know who else would they play instead of Robben. But Manchester United and Manchester City .. any of the two clubs who will capture Robben, will have so much power in their wings.


Manchester City hoping for Juan Riquelme

There are some unconfirmed reports that Manchester city is going to get Juan Riquelme from Boca Juniors. We all know what kind of player he is. THE awesome playmaker. Lets see what happens to this rumor.


Arsenal 4 - 1 Portsmouth

Arsenal continued their impressive start to the season with a resounding victory over struggling Portsmouth. And the most surprising part is having Diaby on the scoring sheet. and that too TWICE. awesome. it seems like arsenal are on a roll. and again arshavin was playing an awesome role. fabregas, might have been saved to get himself further injured.

But all in all, arsenal are putting out a great display of football. and i m looking at tough competition in the top four spots.

Wigan 0 - 5 Man Utd with Owen on the scoring sheet

It was a tough start. They weren't looking that great. But i guess it was the first goal, that broke the lock. Some lucky goal's i'd say, by Rooney and Berbatov. And they came a great goal by Owen. He is looking good now. The goal by nani's freekick was awesome as well.

For all three of his senior strikers to find the net will give Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson much satisfaction in wake of the criticism that followed Wednesday's shock loss at Turf Moor.

Sotirios Kyrgiakos signs for liverpool

Following the troubled defence line of liverpool, Greece defender Sotirios Kyrgiakos signed from AEK Athen this season.

The veteran signed a two-year-deal with the option of a further year, and in doing so ended Rafa Benitez's search for defensive cover following the departure of Sami Hyypia.

And guess what? the good news is he is already training, and can play on monday against aston villa. Here are some pictures.

Ancelotti wants to bring in Seedorf

Just got to know of this at Tribal Football, that Chelsea is looking to get the AC Milan veteran Seedorf, that i think would be a total mistake. No disrespect for Seedorf, he is a great footballer, but i don't think such players would be able to cope with the pace of english premier league. Rather I would suggest bring in a striker or a winger, and that took young. I heard that Chelsea is going to try for Sergio Aguero. Lets see what happens in that regard.

Liverpool lost to Tottenham

Again, a bad start to the season. And I guess its been like this for the past 20 years or so. Benitez is complaining, and rightly so because Liverpool delivered a lame display which lacked attacking invention and genuine quality.There were a number of penalty calls. One of them worked out for Liverpool. But scoring on a penalty is not enough.

On the other hand Tottenham, played pretty well for their standards. The new player they called in actually worked for them. Proved lucky.

I hate to admit but, yes the gel that held together the Liverpool depth to its strikers, that is Xabi Alonso, is gone now. and it showed. there was NO cohesion.

Please share your reviews where. Tell us what you think.

Aquilani coming to Liverpool

Finally, since the confirmation of the sale of Xabi Alonso, one good news. It was being speculated that Aquilani will be replacing Alonso after his move to Real Madrid. Now, i have read from a different sources, that the deal has been agreed upon, and the prices seems to in the range of 18 mil to 20 mil pounds... I am not sure, if he is worth this much. What do you guys think? Comment please.

I am totally looking forward to having him at Anfield. Heard he is fast. and reach places, that require covering.

Just wanna see great football this season, at premier league.

Xabi Alonso going to Real Madrid

It's really kind of a sad news for a Liverpool fan. Alonso's role was undeniably crucial for the success of Liverpool over the past years. Especially the last year. It was Alonso and his ability to connect the players from the deep, that helped Liverpool get to the 2nd place in premier league, even in the absence of Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres.

But today, its kind of official that he will be sold to the Real Madrid for around a petty £30 Million. I think a player is not bigger than the club and its legacy. But what I know, its going to be a really challenge to fill in the gap, he is going to leave.

I wish him all the best for his career. He is one non-English player, whose departure from Liverpool will leave the fans sad. He has had his bad patches. But he definitely is a gem now. I still remember, that people used to refer Steven Gerrard and Xabi Alonso as the best midfield pair in Europe.

Now we have to bring in Aquilani or Steven Defour.

Beckham scores on a free kick against Barcelona

No one can deny the beauty of his free kicks. Apart from all he is. and his phenomenon. This free kick against Barcelona, tells us he is a legend footballer. that was a pure touch of perfection for me. Watch and get lost in its serenity.

Wenger might get Vieira for this season

That is not something new, since the Gunner's are struggling with their midfield options. They really do need some one strong in the midfield. Only name i can recall is Fabregas. Since the departure of Hleb. I didn't see any greater impact of the midfield of Arsenal.

Redknapp is also after Vieira. Let's see, who can get him back to Premier League.

This season's transfer market is really hot.

Rafa Benitez going for David Villa ??

I just got to read this news here at The Sun. Okay for an instance I had to stop and think, that is it possible?

Looking at it with the news i have read in the past few weeks. David Villa rejected the bids from Real Madrid, and Barcelona. I guess these two clubs are the big ones right now. But he rejected it. It seems he is really loyal to Valencia. And that is a good sign.

But I thought of another angle to it, I dont know how much its possible. What if Villa, don't wanna join any other Spanish Club, due to his loyalty to Valencia ??

Rafa, is going to use the money, he will get by the sale of Xabi Alonso. Seems logical. Well lets hope this happens somehow. Would be awesome for liverpool.

And another legend leave. The Sir Bobby Robson, one of the greatest English legends. Who gave their whole life to the game and the people. Served back the community in a number a of ways.

I got to know about him through Newcastle United and England's International football.

Liverpool can win premier league this season if ...

Liverpool is my team. My club. Despite the fact that I adore the game, I still prefer cheering for my own team first. I had to put this post up. I just had to. I want to know, what other people think.

Last season, we came very very close to the premier league crown. All we had to do was just push a little more, a little more effort. A little more luck.

This season, we have added a good wing man. Glen Johnson. Yeah, he would really add to the flare. But giving up Xabi Alonso is not what I look forward to at all. It was Alonso, that helped the team stick together and win the games, when Steven Gerrard was out. I remember, we scored on average 4 goals a game, in a months time. We went through Manchester United, Arsenal and other good teams of the Barclays Premier League.

I still think we can win, all i want is to keep Xabi Alonso, and add one more fierce striker ahead with Torres and Gerrard. It will be a blaster.

Fingers Crossed.

John Terry staying at chelsea

All right, it got decided i guess. You can check up the details here ...

JT is going to stay at Stamford Bridge. To me he really does belong to the blues. It's like he has a major major stake in what Chelsea is now. He did win them the trophies.

Good luck to you terry.

Hey Manchester City, now what will you do? I think they really need defenders now. Toure is on its way i think. Can he play all lone defender???

Ibrahimovic moves to Barcelona

He seals the deal with Barcelona. Finally he has come to the team of cups this year. It somewhat dazzles me, while there are so many other striker, then why him. What about David Villa?

I wonder where he would be going???

Anyways, Barca have paid £40m while fellow striker Samuel Eto'o moves the other way to the Italian club on a five-year deal and Aleksandr Hleb joins on loan.

Still Hleb moving to inter is doubtful, he might move to stuttgart. Any confirmed news about this football rumor??

Owen scores again!

Well well, this is something promising. Michael Owen scores again. I love it. I really look good comebacks. What do you think? Read it out here.

I also read somewhere, and tweeted about it. That Christiano Ronaldo praised Michael Owen, and said he deserves the 7 number.

Consider the hunger owen has to comeback for england. and play in the 2010 worldcup. lets see where it goes. 

All Good luck to Owen.

Owen scores in his debut Manchester United game

At first it doesn't seem like a big deal. But, i think for owen, its a big big confidence booster. He knows now, he got himself a solid platform, to launch himself. It's now or never for his career. We all know, how lethal he can be.

And he scored in the dying minutes, and also scored the winner. That matters. And manchester united won 3-2 against Malaysia XI.

My all good wishes are with him.

Adebayor to Manchester City

I really don't know, what is mark hughes thinking. He now has a team of strikers. Who would play in the midfield? and defence? Would the goalie be an attacker? Heh.

Anyways, I don't know if Adebayor's worth is 25 Million Pounds. I mean come on. really? huh. I would really like to see, how Hughes plays his shopping. huh. here is the news update.. Guardian

Carlos Tevez to Manchester City

Okay, its totally official that Carlos Tevez is a Manchester city player. He is a good player. Better than the average. Good signing for Manchester city.

But there is one thing pinching me, with the likes of Craig Bellamy, Roque Santa Cruz, Benjani, Ched Evans, Felipe Caicedo, Valeri Bojinov and Robinho all fighting for places in City's forward line, how would he be able to get settled with that?

Wasn't not playing in the starting the reason he left Manchester united ?

David Beckham back to Premier League?

Well well well, what we have here. It seems like a breaking news. Don't you think guys? When Beckham left premier league, I thought the general impression was that he would never return to premier league. NOT TO ANY CLUB. But now he says its possible?

What do you think? Is it really?

For me being a football fan, its a real real cool story. And I think it will stir up the premier league. Spice up the matches.

If he returns to premier league, I guess he would most probably be joining Chelsea. May be cause Carlo Ancelotti seemed to like him back at AC Milan. eh?? :)

Anyways, I m suspecting some big club can get him. If they want. and being a professional I don't think he would mind coming back to England. He wants to prove himself to Capello as well. How many years he got ?? 1 or 2?

Let's see what happens.
