    Yeah I hope they play well like when they trashed Blackburn ^^ Actually, I kinda hope MU lost so they can close the gap at the top, but judging from their performance lately, it's kinda hard to deny them a win

    You got that right, mister! Currently United has been blessed with only minor injuries problems and the way the team are playing right now, it would be hard to see them lost a match. I wish Reading could hold Chelsea with a draw, but they got Drogba. That guy is like the new Christian Vieri (in his golden days, of course), his off the ball movement is good, his shot are incredible, and his handling of vertical pass is not to shabby (Vieri's better, but Bierhoff is the best!).[br]Posted on: December 25, 2006, 08:10:00 PM_________________________________________________Haven't seen Xophien hangin' around this board. I'd love some news on Ligue 1.

    As much as I dislike Chelsea (only for their monopoly shopping spree), Drogba is great. He's tall, big and strong. And Chelsea got the tendency to score last minute goals

    Re: The Football/Soccer Thread

    Mourinho is good at making attacking plays. They can close up their half and keep the opponent chasing for the ball, just when they're distracted enough... BAM! they score! Either it's by Didi or someone else, including a certain player who likes to make long range shots.
    Another team i'd love to see winning is Portsmouth, not only because they wear my name on their shirt. But Redknapp managed to turn the lame team to one of the feared ones this season.

    I don't deny Mourinho's brain at all In fact, He's one of the best managers out there
    Sheva is a waste for me, but they still have Lampard for long range and Terry is good at set pieces. Plus Robben and Joe Cole is still there too

    And yes, Portsmouth is great this season. Much like Wigan a few seasons ago ^^ As much as I support Arsenal, the team is pretty penetrable at the back They are great at fatst and counter attacking but while they score goals, the also tend to let easy goals into their net >.>

    Not just new tough defenders, Arsenal also need a new Vieira and a change of goalkeeper would be good, 37 is not exactly a great age for goalie anymore. I was surprised when they sold Campbell to Portsmouth. I heard there's bad blood between Wenger and Campbell now.

    Yeah.. and Lehmann is not my ideal keeper either >.< He seems to have seasons in his performance >.> I guess, his time should be over after World Cup. Perhaps they need to give some younger candidates the post. but yet again, until they settle their defensive problems, they shouldn't chnage I guess >.<

    And good defenders are hard to find nowadays. And Arsenal is not the type to pay big transfer fees like MU or Chelsea >.>[br]Posted on: December 26, 2006, 08:56:52 AM_________________________________________________Bwahhahahaha....

    Chelsea drew (no offense to Chelsea fans)

    Well, the L1 players are currently taking a break so there's not really much to say^^;; since the french league starts a few weeks before most of the other european leagues, they take a two-weeks break for Christmas

    So actually, the only interesting thing right now is the matter of Frédéric Piquionne, Saint-Etienne's striker, that Lyon >_< wants to buy. Hopefully, we'll manage to keep him (he's one of the best scorers of the french league this year), but Lyon has bigger wages

    But, well, I'll give news of the french league when it'll start again. I'm gonna make a .txt file where I'll write "Lyon has won 1-0 at the 87th minute" so I can copy-paste it each time

    Football thread? Juventus rocks! Lots of traitors it seems, but Juve will rise once again! (and long live Del Piero) :P

    And Inter seems to be winning Series A (unfortunately) while Juve series B (hopefully).



    Oh and a lil' question, is Ronlado still fat? (forgot to read the articles lately )
    Tiger, Tiger.


    Let it be known far and wide
    I cheer for Saint-Etienne from the bottom of my heart

    He was slowly gaining his ideal weight at the World Cup. But it seems that he is still slow at the moment. I miss his performance around the year 1997 and 1998

    And yay for Arsenal again ^^ Bleh.. but MU won >.> Chelsea drew ^^ and Liverpool lost
    Makes the fight for top four places more open now ^^ (except for the runaway top spot ofcourse)

    Looks like Lyon's owner got the Abrahamovicitis. Don't let them give him up, Xoph!

    Portsmouth won too! Well, they was playing against the Hammers and it took an old guy like Teddy to score. It's a shame really considering their team materials, they could do better.

    @ibra: yes, he still is

    Sorry I cant update the result for Eredivisie match on the 27th. I kept getting time out everytime i try to acces my source...

    Heh.. actually Lyon is one of my favourite to win the Champions' League this time. They are always great. But it's sad they're playing in less popular league --> when compared to the big ones like EPL, Serie A or La Liga.
