    I really love Udinese, but I agree. With all the Arsenal troubles this summer, to get knocked out would have been terrible. And they did deserve to advance.
    Udinese lost so much talent, but they are also so great at developing talent...I would love to see them do well in Serie A and Europa League.

    Mr. Wenger,

    For the love of God please make some signings before the transfer period is over.

    Sincerely,

    Every Arsenal Fan

    How is England 4th in the world? Croatia 10th? Ridiculous.

    Once again, NOBD demonstrates his phenomenal PhotoShop skills!!! :lol:
    Yes, first time. I thought they had been #1 before.
    It is funny that the responses to the accompanying article is loaded with NED homers. :D http://www.fifa.com/worldfootball/ranking/news/newsid=1497612.html

    I used to like the Netherlands until that WC final, when they basically attacked the Spanish players. Especially that insane De Jong pile-driving kick into Alonso's chest.

    I hope we get back to the "Total Football" style of old school Netherlands. They basically created modern football. NOBD tell me they are getting back to that please.

    Yeah that is silly. English football--always less than the sum of its parts.

    O Fabregas, I'm so happy you're back home. What an awesome goal.

    Don't worry. "We" will just have to replace one of the two butchers on the midfield (De Jong or Van Bommel) with Van der Vaart. Then we'll have "more football in the team" (as we say in Dutch) again. We've been playing like that a few matches already and I think (and hope) we'll continue to do so and make a pretty European champion.

    NOBD -

    What is Elia's status w/ the NT? I was impressed with him in South Africa - really had a way of opening up the field with his pace up and down the left. But since then I haven't heard much coming out of Hamburg.

    I've got to say though, Van Marwijk is a great DT. Holland has been playing some good football, and they just have a way of making everyone produce when they get a call up.

    Saw Croatia (and apparently that 10th spot is lower than they were at last report, according to that arrow) and immediately disregarded it. Anyway, doesn't everyone know Japan is the best in the world?
