European Transfers: Klaas-Jan Huntlear

December 2, 2008

It is reported that Real Madrid have officially signed a contract with dutch striker, Klaas-Jan Huntlear. The dutch striker is said to be one of theĀ  most promising prospects. His playing style is very similar to Marco Van Basten’s playing style. He scores with both feet and off of many cross

es. He does bicycle kicks and has good headers. Top clubs have been trying to sign him for some time now.

It is reported that he was signed for 20 million euros and there will be an additional 7 million (based off of preformance and fitness.)

Ballon D’ Or: Results

Cristiano Ronaldo

It has been officially announced that Manchester United and Portugal winger, Cristiano Ronaldo, is the new winner of the Ballon D’ or (world player of the year). This is not surprising considering Ronaldo had 42 goals in his 49 appearances for Manchester United, eight goals in the euro 08 qualifying and one in the euro 08 tournament after qualifying. He had a terrific season.

Lionel Messi won second place and Fernando Torres won a close third.

I personally feel Torres’ results and statistics are much better than Messi’s, but Messi might have more individual skill

Premier League: Chelsea

November 28, 2008
Adriano

Adriano

_There have been rumors that Inter are keen to buy Didier Drogba. Chelsea have made it clear that they want 40 million Euros (Over priced much???) and Inter still want to buy him. It is rumored that Inter will give Chelsea 40 mil euros. Inter are rumored to be ok with that price and are planning to sell the unhappy Adriano, Hernan Crespo, and Mario Balotelli (who is also reportedly unhappy at Inter). Adriano and Balotelli are both Chelsea targets.

Good or bad for Chelsea?

Well I personally feel that: 1. Didier Drogba is too old and past his prime.

2. it would be retarded to buy him for 40 million euros

3. it would be retarded to NOT to sell him if someone wanted him for 40 million euros.

4. Adriano is better and younger

5. Mario Balotelli is a very promising prospect.

So yes i think it would be good for Chelsea if this whole deal went down. If Chelsea could get Balotelli and Adriano that would be excellent. Chelsea need at least another striker especially if they are to sell Drogba. Their only other option is Nicolas Anleka. Anelka, don’t get me wrong, is in excellent form…. but he is 29 and reaching his peak. You can not count on more than two solid years on him. Chelsea’s only other real option at the moment is the 19 year old Franco Di Santo who is just not ready yet. Adriano, in my opinion, would be a perfect replacement and might even work well with anelka. It would just bring Chelsea more options. Balotelli would be an excellent bonus, and i think he would become a legend in premier league if he was only given the opportunity.

Uefa Cup: Milan vs. Portsmouth

Portsmouth took a 2-0 lead through goals from Kanu and kaboul. Milan came back with a 84th minute Ronaldinho free kick and then a goal from Inzaghi in added minutes allowed Milan to end the game with a tie.

Uefa Cup: Tottenham vs. NEC

November 27, 2008

Harry Redknapp seems to have really turned things around for Tottenham. It was not domination by any means but it is in the right direction for the spurs. jamie O’hara scored the only goal.

Uefa Cup: Manchester City vs. Schalke

November 27, 2008

Manchester proved too good for German side Schalke today in the Uefa Cup. A Goal from Benjani and another from Ireland secured City’s 2-0 win. Benjani had an excelent season last year, but failed to impress this season while stephen Ireland is showing to be one of the most promising attacking midfielders of Premier League.

Manchester City has good momentum building (they beat Arsenal 3-0 las t weekend) and they take on Manchester united this weekend.

Champions League: Chelsea

WTF?

Dider Drogba

That was one of the most depressing displays I have seen from Chelsea since Avram Grant was in charge. Also what is the deal with Drogba? Why does he suck so bad? and if he sucks so bad then why did Scolari put him in the game instead of the inform Anelka who got on the score board?

Scolari stated after the game that he is very disappointing with the result and that if Chelsea do not qualify for the Champions league (make it past the group stages) he will go back to Brazil.
