Fuckimg shit, Real Madrid has way too much money, their offence will be insanely good.

Yeah but their defense is shit. That's why Barcelona killed them 6-2 last season, and it doesn't seem like they're fixing it.

Anyway, Man. Utd. signed Michael Owen witch seems kind of stupid but I suppose its not that bad if he comes off the bench. Which again brings up the question of another striker, there's been some talk of Zlatan Ibrahimovic but I mean, I don't think he'd be fast enough for the Premier League. :/

Good for Owen, I really like him.
Ibrahimovic might not be very fast but he sure as hell makes up for it with his other skills, I remember Inter saying that he's worth 100 millions.

I think even Barcelona should be worried about Real Madrid, their attack if they gel together well will be better than Barcelona's anyday, Kaka and Ronaldo and Benzema are top players who are 'World - Class'.

The only problem Madrid have is how to accomadate Kaka and Ronaldo and Benzema and Higuain all together, they might have to play with various formations before the get the right mix. The defence has improved though, they signed Raul Albiol, and he ain't a bad defender but he is not on the same calibre as Vidic, Ferdinand, Terry, Puyol, Nesta etc.

Onto Man United, they have had probably a bad summer, they are getting muscled out financially by other clubs like Man City (who are mega rich now), Real Madrid and Chelsea, I reckon thats why they signed Micheal Owen, his days are gone he will probably only be a bit part player for United.

He could get back to his old form, because Man Utds physios are a lot better than Newcastles, as well as the world class facilities they have. Also, Utd are close to signing a 20 year old winger, if he isn't already bought. Lemme just find a link.

EDIT: OK, here - a 20 year old Winger called Gabriel Obertan. Other teams who were after him included A.C and Inter Milan, and Arsenal - http://news.bbc.co.u...utd/8138952.stm. He hasn't signed yet, but is doing, or has done, his medical. Almost 3 signings so far for United. They still need at least 2 more players, if not 3. A midfielder, another winger and a forward, I think, to cover for the losses of Ronaldo and Tevez.

Regarding Porto. My little team.


I'm pissed, our 2 best players Lisandro Lopez and Lucho Gonzales are leaving and that sucks. Especially now that the team was completely working.

And Cissohko might also go.

Serbian 20-year old defender Ivan Obradovic might go to either Ajax or Atheltico Madrid, for around 5-10 million euro. Meanwhile the extremely versatile Serbian midfielder Gojko Kacar may go to German champions Wolfsburg, or there's been a lot of talk of Man. Utd. picking him up too. There's also been some Italian interest, Juventus wants him as well I believe. Should go for around 10-12 million euro.

30-year old Marko Pantelic is bound to find a new club, most likely a decent English side or Italian side, while Nikola Zigic may also end up at a decent premier league team this summer. Arsenal and Real Madrid had a lot of interest in 17-year old Danijel Aleksic during the winter, and he'll most likely leave the Serbian Superliga this summer for a big European side as well.

Serbian update. (:

Man, Serbia has a shitload of talented players, I remember seeing Pantelic play, he's pretty good but I hear he kinda has a tough attitude.

:)

And yeah, lol, Pantelic is one of our weaker players, he had a bad attitude at Hertha, I know him and the coach REALLY didn't get along. Totally fine on our national team though.

We really shine in our youth- I think we might actually be able to be BETTER than our "golden generation" in the 60s. We've got so much depth in our defense and midfield in particular. Obradovic (DEF, 20- Atletico/Ajax), Subotic (DEF, 20- Dortmond), Rajkovic (DEF, 20- on loan from Chelsea @ Twente), Petkovic (DEF, 23- Frankfurt), not to mention Ivanovic from Chelsea or Vidic from Man. Utd. In midfield we have Kacar (MID, 22- Hertha Berlin), Ljajic (MID, 17- Man. Utd.), Djuricic (MID, 17- Heeenveen), Matic (MID, 20- Kosice, although linked with many in Prem League), Z. Tosic (MID, 22- Man. Utd.), Smiljanic (MID, 22- Espanyol). And for forwards we've got Djordjevic (FWD, 21- Nantes), Sulejmani (FWD, 20- Ajax), and Aleksic (FWD, 17- linked with Arsenal, Real Madrid and other top European clubs).

Plus there are A LOT of others I'm obviously forgetting, and of course there are quite a few diaspora kids that won't be playing for Serbia. Such as Bojan Krkic from Barceonla, Marko Marin, etc. There's also this one 17-year old named Nikola Saric who may play for Serbia but may not, he's currently at Liverpool's youth. :)

The pre-season friendlies are beginning to be played now. Man U beat a Malaysia X1 3-2 today, and Michael Owen scored the winner! If he stays fit, he could be a bargain. I think he's on a 2 year, pay-as-you-play deal, which sounds fair for a 29 year old. Also, Stoke have had a rubbish pre-season so far. They've lost to 2 non-league sides, and lost again on Friday, 3-1 to St Pauli.

BTW, I made a topic for the new Premier League season here, just to let you know. :)

EDIT: Also. Because of the new season coming soon, you can register on premierleague.com for the fantasy league game and prediction game. My username is bossman22 on there, but that's not my age. I would have put 222 but it either wasn't available or I forgot. Check them out here:

Well what a surprise last night. Man Utd got beat 1 nil by Burnley, quite a shock result and for United maybe a few wake up calls that Ronaldo has not been replaced. There was a lack of creativity in the midfield and I think thats down to Ronaldos absence.
United need to buy someone quick, a good attacking midfielder that will get 15-20 goals a season, just dont see where the goals are going to come from now Ronaldo has gone.

I really saw this coming, Man United have been playing quite bad, comparing to the last season, on the other hand, Chelsea has been brilliant, Liverpool and Arsenal are good too, this way it's gonna be VERY HARD for Man United to get to the top spot.
My money's on Chelsea.

No ones ever won the premiership 4 times in a row and I doubt Ma Utd will (the might've with Ronaldo), the loss of Tevez though as well has also weakened the squad, United need to do some real thinking because that midfield looked lightweight and out of ideas. Defense ain't looking too good either but thats because of all the injuries.

Agree with you, from the games I saw the team was really lacking in creativity, they could barely manage to create decent opportunities.

Tonight are the matches from UEFA Europa League. Can't wait to see them. My country has 4 teams playing tonight. Haha, go go! Can't wait for these play-offs to end and the Group-Stages to start. This year should be very competitive.

First, that was a very weakened Manchester United squad, without a doubt. They didn't start with Berbatov, Valencia, Ferdinand (right?), Vidic, or even Tosic (who, although he may not start, he could definitely come off the bench and bring some extra creativity and boost the attack). Nothing to worry about IMO. And besides, we all know Manchester United already have boughten their next midfield star, he goes by the name of Adem Ljajic! Without a doubt, the number one 17-year-old in the world. I wouldn't be surprised to see him feature in the Premier League when he comes in Jan., but I think his real Premier League career will start next season. Who knows though. :)!

As for Europa League, there were four teams in that from Serbia. Two got knocked out, and there are two left. My team, FK Partizan, tied their first leg 1-1 but were clearly the better team, they should do much better on the next leg as I predict the other guys will be playing some bunker-down football. I think with Adem Ljajic's dribbling, he'll get through once and it'll be enough to set up a goal. :)! The other team, Crvena Zvezda Beograd, (Red Star Belgrade), former Champion's League champs, lost 0-3, but they always tend to play x10 better at home so I'm not saying their out yet.

I dont know what the deal with Tosic, he hasn't played yet and wasn't on the bench either. Seems strange paying all that money and he hasn't featured at all in three Premier League games. Anyway Man Utd were back on track, they beat Wigan 5 nil but I think that Burnley result might cost them later on in the season.
Man City are spending ridiculous amounts of money, they are buying Joleon Lescott for 24 Million, they way they are going I expect Man City to be a top 4 team by next season.

That happens a lot with big teams, Barcelona paid like 14 million or something like that for Keirrison and now he's in Benfica for 2 years because of a loan.

Last night, 4 Romanian teams went into Europa League Groups. But damn it, Dinamo Bucharest turned the score, from 3-0 ( Slovan Liberec won with 3-0 at first round because some Dinamo fans entered the field, so UEFA gave them 3-0 ) to 3-3 then it went to extra-time, after that at penalty's. I almost fainted, there were 9 penalty shoot-outs. All that tension, haha, made me sometimes scream and got very nervous. But still, Dinamo won 9-8 at penalty's, with a total score of 12-11 ( lol ).


And our Champions, Unirea Urziceni, got in group G with Stuttgart, Sevillia and Glasgow Rangers. Good group. In my opinion, Group C and Group F are looking tight.
