well how do you feel about it? :lol: thiago silva and zlatan were your 2 best players!
paris ends it's impressive recruitment with zlatan, thiago silva, lavezzi and verratti. 100% serie A, over 100M€ spent and impressive salaries given.
There are over 10 players from the serie A in the team+ coach and manager... apparently their most commonly used language is starting to be italian in the locker rooms.
I relly think their team is looking good now.

Pele, Beckenbauer and Chinaglia on the same team won 5 league titles in 6 years, but the lower teams had financial problems and couldn't compete so the league collapsed (this explains why MLS has the salary restrictions it does today). Some teams survived and are in MLS today (Portland, Seattle, San Jose, etc.)

The owner held onto the copyright until recently when he sold it to a Saudi group who's bringing the team back.

The whole "deciding when you're in the first division" is because the first division is still growing. There is no relegation yet because teams have to buy their way in until the league fills up. Right now there are 19 teams. No one knows when they'll decide to stop adding teams though, my guess is at 24. The last team paid $50 million, and people are guessing the next team will have to pay $100 million.

the way sports work in the US makes relegations unviable. it's a franchise system based on regular season and playoffs, with no relegation just like any other US sports (nfl, nhl, nba, mlb ect....). People wouldn't be implicated enough in their team if they were relegated from the top league.
Also in the US you can just buy a franchise and move it to another city...
And i don't think pelé, beckenbauer, chinaglia and cruyff played that long over there.
The funny thing is now, that new york has a team with the name of a beverage, the only one in the league. how will they cope with the come back of such a brand as the NY cosmos?

This is true. The only way it is possible is if MLS also runs the 2nd division. Which probably will never happen, but you never know.

Meh, New York is too big a city for one team. Back in 2006 when Red Bull bought the team a lot of the hardcore supporters left and most of them are going to support this team. But the fanbase is still growing there, and probably still will. They will be playing on total opposite sides of the city (RB plays on the New Jersey side, Cosmos will play on the Queens/Brooklyn/Long Island side).

Wenger doesn't spend, huh? Well it's all fine and well seeing him spend, but wtf is he playing at buying 4 attacking-minded players?!? Especially if Robin stays...

What about a left back?!? I mean Gibbs as our first choice? REALLY?!?

And what about another quality keeper to push Szczesny?

Attack is your best defense. Isn't this the way Arsenal play or at least want to?

I know you guys don't care much about the football in the olympics, I know there's not such distinction for European clubs (sub 23), but I'm a bit excited. Mexico keeps doing very well in young divisions, winning 2 sub-17 world cups and now this sub-23 team is in the final against Brazil.

The final is saturday. Wembley, Mexico vs Brazil, it means a lot for Mexican football. Players to follow from the Mexican team are forwards Gio Dos Santos, Oribe Peralta and Marco Fabian, and also defenders Diego Reyes, Mier and Salcido.

Who are you rooting for, Mexico or Neymar's Brazil?

So who's going to buy a Sombrero and go watch the game to a pub??

I will need pictures!!

GIo Dos Santos will not be playing for Mexico, he's injured. (Don't worry nagerous, he'll be ok in 2 weeks). But it's ok, Mexico doesn't completely depend on him.

Mexico's defensive blocks will be a good test for Neymar, he might pass one, two, but eventually he'll be stopped.
