I always find myself getting annoyed in the beginning of a match with Barca. Their defensive - and yes, it's it a defensive - style of play where they pass the ball 10 times in the mid circle without any progress. I eventually end up sucking it all up and admiring the almost non-humanly football they play. Wont get any better.

France 2000? Nah Not even the best in the world. Ronaldo Rivaldo Roberto Carlos young Ronaldinho.

yes I think france from that era were the best (1998-2000 and a bit beyond), brilliant team who worked together very well and strong in every way, great defence and midfield and a very good attack, I think in 2000 they were slightly better than in 98 though... I think having Vieira and deschamps in midfield would have kept the brazillians quiet.

Some football expert says that the milan team in the 90's{under sacchi and capello} with dutch trio, maldini, ancelotti etc were the greatest.

I can only speak about what I remember, it is a bit before my time, I have vague memories of them beating barca 4-0 back then, but not enough to judge the, I was only a young lad of 9 or something(I forget).. I want to say france around the year 2000 were the best I remember

Yeah i remember it, they even want to plant some anti-fog machine:D. That stadium (was once, ended in police car:eek:) is built in big hole, that is why fog even more can complicated things.

Season 88/89. Milan won Champions Cup that season, against Steaua in the final.


any1 that says barca hasn't been helped by the referees over the last 3 years is just blind. . .
Even if that was true, Mourinho still acts more like a gangster, less like a sportsman.

****!!.......... meireles asking for a transfer....not good.
 
King Kenny put him on the bench for some reason so I can understand him. Adam from Blackpool and Henderson from Sunderland were in the first eleven, while Mereiles is a better player.

I don't know how to rate all this rumours, can't imagine he asked for a transfer some minutes before the deadline :p

btw, Arsenal looks ******
But Merte should help them. He just doesn't like small, fast guys. :D

mereilles has joined chelsea.... :S that was quick work
Don't think it was. When they published his transfer request he could have been a Chelsea player for hours. It certainly already was a done deal when they published it 30 before deadline.

He would rip this guys head off.



Let us recognize that descriptors like "real" are subjective...extremely subjective.

Wow that's a transfer. Good signing for Chelsea tough. Terrible move by Liverpool, best midfielder next to Gerrard imo.
No, he is definitly not. And Chelsea paid an overprize for him. He'll be nothing but a backup - just as he was in Liverpool.
