Transfer Centre ‏@CentreTransfer 46m
BREAKING NEWS: Real Madrid have signed Gareth Bale for €90m. (François Gallardo; FIFA agent) #Transfers
Well, Bale and Ronaldo will be a nice pair to watch (if Ronaldo stays which I think he will). And I won't even bother getting into this Italy debate, tired of defending them when no one seems to want to believe any other opinion besides that they are all "cheap divers".

Is that an all time record transfer fee?

Writings on the wall at this point. Kinda sucks to see him go but if Spurs get a solid striker and defender out of this they will be fine

90 million for one player can help build alot of other positions. Spend like 20 to get another winger. Then you have 70 to get a striker and defender

Well I doubt they spend it all, you can replace Bale with a Nani for say, 15 million.

I like Bale, but he doesn't seem like a la liga player to me. Fit in about the way Podolski would on Barcelona.

Rooting for the USA from here on out. Poland's world cup chances were drastically hit with a draw against Moldova today........

edit: Also

Transfer NOW ‏@Transfer_NOW 6h
Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye has admitted he would welcome a move to Premier League champions Manchester United. #NUFC #MUFC

Would be a fantastic addition to the midfield

I think draw. They don't seem to play well there but the offense is showing glimpses of hope. Ricketts is capable of stealing the show though.

I don't think he's a La Liga player either but I'm no talent evaluator.

They probably should show some gratitude given the Germans are almost single-handedly keeping the Euro afloat.

My heritage is German, so I have some bias on the issue, but I agree.

You're in the wrong topic, broseidon.

And your post is wrong too. I didn't see you senselessly bash the sport for no reason. You might want to edit your post and throw that in there somewhere.

As would just about any player on the planet.

The question probably was, "Would you like to play for Manchester United?" and he said, "Of course."

Becaue who the **** wouldnt? European media is so dumb (and smart) asking those types of questions because the answer is obvious (and they twist it to turn it into a transfer "rumor").

You bring up a very good point. Im not saying that he may be moving, however we do need to strengthen the midfield , and he would be a great option

The coverage on that free kick to tie the match was terrible...so many holes in the D,,No pace what so ever..Donavan still on his walkabout and probably a shell of he player he was if he does come back. Players hate Klinsman or so its rumored , They will qualify because of the lack of depth in the reigon but they do not look good..I see a 1998 Redux where the finished the group 0-3 in the WC

I don't think the players hate Klinsmann and Zusi is better than Donovan so **** him. Nothing we can really do about the defense. We just don't have anyone good this generation.

No Zusi and probably no Jones in Tuesday for Seattle, the city that can sell 50k for a club game but not 40k for a WCQ

Between Bradley, Dempsey and Altidore, the U.S. is building a solid core of the lineup heading into the next world cup.

The coverage was perfect as the D pulled up making goal scorer was offsides. Not sure what you expect when the refs blow it.
