    Both gold medals go to CONCACAF teams. Good stuff.

    Allow me to weigh in on the RVP saga:

    Obviously I still want him to stay but if he must go I would rather it be to a non-EPL side...like Juve. However, the newest reports are that he's told Juventus he'll pass on them (probably because of the newest scandal) and Mancini has ruled out a move altogether. It seems RVP has his mind set on the Red Devils. Fergie has tried twice to land him but Wenger refuses to sell him to a rival for less than £20m. I think he stays this window and we restart the saga in January. He seems fine in training with the squad so I think buying Santi Cazorla has softened his resolve a bit.

    The rumor I'm more interested is the Alex Song-to-Barcelona talk. It seems he's agreed terms and they might get him for a fee of £15m. We've been trying to lure Nuri Sahin from Madrid on a season loan so maybe the rumor is real. Regardless hes worth more than £15m for sure.

    Also I never talked Euros so lemme say a few things:

    • Pirlo was brilliant and I respect the hell out of him
    • The Dutch failed me again...except this time they just sucked!
    • I hated Spain winning but it seems we'll have to get used to them because they cant be beat and they keep producing great youth!
    • Why did Gotze get so little playing time?!!!
    • France needed to get more creative and feed Benzema
    • Oxlade-Chamberlain looked good in his first major competition

    Heres the thing, if Song moves and Arshavin moves, they just freed up a hell of a lotta wages from those two guys alone. My guess is RVP will sign to Arsenal.

    While I agree with you, Wenger seems to be struggling to sell guys like Bendtner, Arshavin, Squillaci and Djourou.

    Man City wins the community shield. Great goal by Tevez. Unfortunate red card for Ivanovich.

    Samir Nasri's goal was nice too! I think it was important for City to play well and establish themselves as worthy champions. Even without any significant additions they still have a very very good team. I agree with Sir Boltman. It is going to be a tremendous season.

    I'm in. We have an odd number of players currently. We need another recruit.

    Pitch Howlers is a great name. Nice one Tyce.

    There are more entering. If we still have odd numbers, Rauchy will take the place of Zwart. But I think we will end up even. We have 2 gunners fans in so far.

    One person trying to make his team is trying to figure out how to put Ronaldo on his team. :roflmao:

    You worry too much Tyce. Capello will do a good job.

    Last year they had so many software gliches that the scoring did not begin until the third week. England and EA Sports was not a match made in heaven. God help those who need to import faak ups from Canucklestan.
