Inter will be unstoppable now. They've just signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Although knowing what Inter are like in the transfer market, they'll probably sell Adriano for about £3,000,000 and replace him with Duncan Ferguson

I've gotta confess it took me a while to be sold on him, but every time I see him he seems to have a good game.....

Now if we can only sort the back 4 out....

I dunno, some of them have good games, its all a matter of consistency.

Boyd and Miller could work alright together, McFadden, Burke, Ferguson and Fletcher isn't the worst midfield in the world.

Granted we've got Italy, France and the Ukraine in the qualifiers, but the side isn't THAT bad.

That tactic blatantly isn't working for you Mackem, abandon it.

At least you're not bottom, and at least you've lost to some decent sides.

Also, packt up Although right in fairness, i wish we could spend £1m on a lump of a striker and around £300k on an Arsenal winger who's yet to play a game for them and was out of our team during the good run towards the end of last season (i would have still got him though ).

Mick McCarthy has admitted there has been some interest from Celtic in Lee Naylor.

The boss says he would be disappointed to see the left-back leave Wolves as Lee had been one of the plus points when the new boss first considered taking the Molineux job.

"There has been a bit of interest but I don't know what level it has gone to," said Mick.

McFadden won't play midfield. I'd have Quashie over Ferguson anyday.

I feel a lot better when Andy Webster is playing at the back too.

Webster is solid, we need someone other than Pressley next to him though

I've never been a fan of Quashie, would personally take Ferguson over him, but each to his own.

Newcastle would be much better served switching Titus Bramble to centre forward than centre half....

Pressley shouldn't even be in the squad in my book. Dude gets skinned at international level by anyone that can turn and run.

To illistrate what a cunt Nigel Quashie is, I was trying to find the clip of Stevie Stone nutmegging him. I couldn't find it but rest assured, it was awesome, Quashie then just fouled Stoney like the big fag that he is, we scored from it aswell. Stoney is the man, Quashie was a cunt though.

Anyway, I couldn't find that, but I found the next best thing, its still a former Pompey player nutmegging a gigantic minge.

What is the significance of that? The Soccernet article basically made it sound like Beckham is done, but could it possibly mean that he just wanted to try other people for this one friendly?

It couldn't really no.

Beckham would be in the squad at least if McClaren wanted him. He only said the door might be open to cover his own arse incase Lennon or Sweep don't perform well. Beckhams done and not a minute too soon, about a decade too late really, he always was overrated and I bet the main reason he is gutted about not being in the England team isn't that he is 6 away from 100, or that he isn't good enough for his country, but all the sponsorship deals that he is now not going to get.

Is soccer going to get screwed up soon in terms of money? Just looking at the new owner of Aston Villa, he paid like 65 million pounds for it or something. An NFL team is sold for something like $600 million, it just seems like a Premiership team could be worth a lot more, it will just take somebody to raise the price.

And the same thing with player salaries. I don't know any off hand, but in a book I was just reading it said Roy Keane was making like 50,000 pounds per week in 2000 or something like that. So that would be 2.4 million, which is a lot, but seeing as how much teams are playing for transfer fees, doesn't it seem inevitable that somebody gets an Alex Rodriguez type deal and easily changes the whole system? I guess I am still a little confused on how transfers work, if Chelsea buys somebody from say Milan, and they pay a transfer fee of 20 million, that means they pay the other team 20 million but then the players contract is completely different, right?

I guess what I am saying, is there anything stopping say Chelsea or Madrid or something from just offering a completely rediculous contract to somebody, and throwing the whole system off scale?

No, there isn't (apart from the fact Madrid have almost bankrupted themselves more than once). But yes, in theory if Chelsea wanted to they could offer £50m for any player. The thing is though everyone else knows this, and are refusing to sell to them for the most part, mainly because they know if Chelsea put a super team together they'll be nearly unstoppable.

The transfer fee is seperate btw. To use your example, Chelsea would pay Milan £20m, they would more than likely pay a signing bonus to the player (could be anything, probably a million or more for a top class signing) and then the wages are worked out seperately. The very best players get over £100k per week now.

In all reality, Chelsea has about the best team money can buy right now on paper. In the offseason they got easily one of the worlds top strikers and a world class midfielder. This goes along with IMO one of the top three goalies in the world, the captain of England, and the likes of Drogba, Cole, Robben, Makalele, Lampard, and all of the other guys, it would be hard to get a better player in any position.

Obviously there are better players that they don't have, but they should just go with it now. Like who else do they want to buy? I saw Ashley Cole, which I guess I can see, but beyond that they have so much talent in every position. I became a fan because of Desially, Zola, Jimmy Floyd, Petit and the likes, even though they are winning it is becoming hard to be a fan now because it is almost unfair. I mean adding Shevchenko, how does that happen?

Off topic rant over.

Chelsea still have weaknesses. Their test will come from how they perform against Arsenal, United, the scum and Spurs.

No I'm not saying that exactly. What I said might have come off as "Chelsea is the best team, front to back, hands down," but that isn't what I meant. What I was trying to say was more on the lines of Chelsea needs to stop buying all of these high priced players. Buying the players worked for getting them to the league championship, but this ongoing cycle of new star players isn't the best way to win the big stuff. I would be surprised if Chelsea doesn't win the Premiership again, just because no other team can match their depth, but continuing to make these big moves is just going to hurt chemistry going into the Champions League, where other teams have star studded teams that have played together longer. BAH.

I mentioned them.

And I think Chelsea will win it too. Just saying it's not a forgone conclusion.

We are the scum to Man Utd fans as they are to Liverpool fans

AND everyone hates Chelsea and more importantly, the Chelsea fans.....although I don't think they have any left judging by the turn out yesterday.

Chelsea are gonna win the league on star quality alone. They have the fortunate situation where by, even if the rest of the team is having an off day, one of the stars is gonna bang in a goal, or stop them going in the other end.

I'm confident we can finish above United, but to be fair to them, they have looked the best side of the top four in pre-season. I don't think Spurs are gonna be any closer to the Champions League (I really feel Arsenal will iron out the inconsistencies and be solid if unspectacular all season).

The fact is, no one is finished in the market yet, so its hard to predict exactly whats gonna happen. United are gonna get a tough tackling midfielder in before the end of the transfer window, which could make all the difference. We're looking for a striker and Arsenal still have a few positions to sort out, they have to wait for whats gonna happen with Cole and Reyes.

We've bought well if unspectacularly. I think Bellamy, Aurelio and Pennant can be good players for us, they aren't gonna take us to the next level, but it adds the depth which we were desperately lacking at times over the past 2 seasons. If Rafa can realise that Zenden is useless, we might do even better.

I think the season has potential to be really interesting if Chelsea stutter at the start, they've got a few injuries and are nowhere near fit. Could be interesting, but I can't see past them for the title, sadly.

Bets on whose going down? I've got Reading, Watford and Charlton, Sheffield Utd to stay up based on squad depth compared to the other 2 promoted teams, Charlton to go down cos Dowie is fucking useless

Oh and I hope that makes some of ya realise, not all Liverpool fans get completely worked up over winning the Community Shield, my best mate is a Pool fan as well, and he agrees we're looking at 2nd at the very most.
