Manchester United Change Transfer Policy

The Guardian today has a very interesting article regarding Manchester United’s owners changing the clubs transfer policy to concentrate on signing players under 26. It seems that the Glazer family want the club to only sign players that they can recoup transfer fees on later in their careers. Now maybe […]

Manchester United: Summer Transfer Targets

With the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo adding £80 million to Sir Alex Ferguson’s usual £25-30 million yearly budget. A summer spending spree is surely on the cards. Looking at the side, it would appear to me a winger and some quality in centre midfield are needed, with possibly, a striker […]

Manchester United Finally Decide To Sell Ronaldo

So its official, Manchester United’s board have accepted a world record shattering bid of £80 million this morning from Real Madrid for Cristiano Ronaldo. I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t face another summer of every news outlet boring us to tears speculating on Ronaldo’s future as we had […]

The Bundesliga XI 2009

Goalkeeper Jaroslav Drobny (Hertha Berlin) Make no mistake about it, Berlin’s rise from bottom half side to title contenders was based on defense. They were a hard side to break down and on the off-chance that a team did, there was Drobny to get by. His performance against Bayern was […]

The Bundesliga Rumor Mill

It has been an interesting week in rumors. First the managers! Hoffenheim will say goodbye to Ralf Rangnick because he wants to spend money this summer. They will then say hello to Jurgen Klinsmann, who is the epitome of frugality. After all, he only forced Bayern to rebuild it’s training […]

The Bundesliga Rumor Mill

Here is this week’s round up of transfer rumors. Of course the big news has been about Klinsmann’s replacement. Wenger is probably off the table after Rummenigge’s pleasant comments about the Arsenal manager, but the list of manager’s linked is fairly absurd: Jol, Ancelotti, Van Gaal, Hiddink, Gerets, Hitzfeld, Veh, […]

A Good Week in Europe for the Bundesliga

It was a pretty good week for the Bundesliga in European competitions. Let’s start with the disappointing. Wolfsburg followed a 2-0 road loss with a 1-3 loss at the VW to PSG of France. While PSG has been a self-imploding team over the previous two campaigns, contending with relegation both […]

Bundesliga Transfer News: Well Played Kaiser

(Photo credit:LENNART PREISS/AFP/Getty Images) With increased speculation and apparent player maneuverings, Bayern Munich have found themselves amidst an odd news cycle about losing Franck Ribery. Today, Franz Beckenbauer made a shrewd move and announced that their talismanic playmaker could leave in the summer if the player himself really wants the […]

Bundesliga Matchday 12 by the Numbers

1-2-3 – Current ranking of Bochum, Cottbus, and Bielefeld on the “Anti-Fair-Play Table.” Here Bochum has a commanding lead thanks to their 33(!) yellows in 12 games. This trio tops another table as well, but this one’s about “Anti-Results.” All three are currently in the relegation zone. Coincidence? Probably not […]

The Bundesliga XI

While this is expected to become a weekly column, I have decided to hand out the first Weekly XI based on the cumulative efforts of the first three weeks.  I will use a 3-4-3 formation for my picks. GK: Mathias Schober (Schalke 04) – The veteran backup has taken over […]
