    Would love to watch the Chelsea v PSG match at Yankee Stadium even without all the signings being exhibited. Sounders will be crushed but at least it will allow Chelsea to play a respectable attacking game

    Pretty quiet all around in regards to transfers, though there are some interesting stories to watch

    The new hires will want to prove themselves, so it should be quite watchable for a friendly.



    [CFC have long had a respectable attacking game btw. :)...... are you arsenal in disguise? ]

    True - beyond last season's bus parking, Chelsea have often played a rather attacking game

    Oh the woes of an Arsenal fan. A month ago, everything was good. Podolski and Giroud signed and Arsenal was rumored into being involved with a plethora of players with M'Villa looking locked up. Then in typical Arsenal fashion, a top player, RvP states he won't renew his contract. So now it looks like we are losing him, M'Villa rumors go out the door because of his attitude at Euros, nobody wants Arshavin, Walcott may want out since RvP wants out, and everything else goes dry. Oh how being an Arsenal fan can be frustrating. As soon as everything appears to be going nice and excitement is in the air...it reverses course because of one moment.

    So what's next? Reports are that RvP is being courted by Man City (surprise) and Juventus. Personally I'd tell Man City to fuck off, tell RvP he won't be playing in England, and work with Juventus or any other foreign team on a transfer fee. Other reports are that Arsenal are intent on not selling RvP, hoping that with the additions they win trophies, and RvP resigns at the end of the year. Risky move. Aside from that debacle, apparently Arsenal are on the verge of signing M'Baye Niang...but that's a long term project. Reports are that Ibrahim Afellay has snubbed Lille in an attempt to move to Arsenal. Now this I find intriguing. For one, I really like Afellay so I think he'd be a quality addition. Secondly, he's really good friends with RvP. So could this be the addition that has RvP reverse course like Rooney of a few years ago? Who knows but hopefully this turns around and some more good news starts coming in for a change. Really need to add some defensive depth as well. Midfield could use some depth and I don't know why they haven't made a bigger run for Dempsey, stating he wants CL football and by all comments, basically singled out Arsenal as a destination of preference.

    ^ see, it's not just me, any time an arsenal fan starts to lament it ends up being some depressing soliloquy :laugh:

    best thing is that the insolent child Theo now thinks he is deserving of a massive contract, for what I could not say


    i guess if you ignore the Jose years and all the seasons after they used his playbook then yeah it's true :p

    And now PSG has confirmed they dropped 12M Euro for Marco Verratti. Holding out hope for a miracle he would still end up at Juve. Hope he actually plays at PSG - hate to see another young talent go bust.

    Real Madrid are playing Santos Laguna in a preseason tour friendly here. Still debating if I want to pay some $250 for tickets :plain:

    Edit:

    New ManU kits really don't look as :crazy: as I'd imagined.
