This article miss the bigger point. The relation with the Barras is questionable for a lot of reasons, but they're small fish. It's easy to point to the dammed ones now, but it's barely related with River demise, specially barely related with finances, and River demise was most of all economic. The club got $90 million in debts now. No other club in Argentina owes half of it. While, as the article points, they sold a great sum in players (maybe more than everyone else in South America) while spending relatively few for new players.

What happened (along with bad management) is good part of this money never reached River Plate hands. Aguillar, altough allied with Barras, was also allied with a web of "investors" and agents. And those agents were allowed to buy "parts" of promissing River players to make huge profit from the sales to Europe in the future, agents like Fernando Hidalgo, Gustavo Arribas and Pini Zahavi.

There was a lot of shady deals going on all the time, specially at the end of Aguillar administration, involving Higuaín (Zahavi got more than half from Real Madrid payment of 13 M for him), Belluschi, Musacchio... River got way less than could get from selling his major property - the players. While making agents rich in the process.

I mean, if one is really willing to point the finger, as much as the Barras are really dangerous, criminials and maniacs, at least do it also for the most responsible ones. Do it at the sharks also.

In addition to a possible 20-game suspension from their stadium, River Plate could face an 18-game deduction next season after death threats were issued toward a match official..

Looks like River Plate might not be seeing first division football for some time now!

CSKA Moscow's form could yet turn Leonid Slutsky's frown upside down
You wouldn't know it from their coach's glum demeanour, but the army side are marching towards the Russian league title

Seydou Doumbia, CSKA hit-man, the heir of Drogba for the Ivory Coast is on fire this season, 9 goals in 12 matchs in the RPL and hes only played roughly around 70 percent of the season. Overall he has about 27 goals in 34 games in all competitions since last summer.

To Russia With Love
Posted on Thursday, 7th July 2011 by Rory Hanna
Quote:
The world of calcio is having an increasing influence on Russian football. Following Domenico Criscito’s transfer from Genoa to Zenit St Petersburg, the Russian Premier League is now home to four Italians – Criscito, Zenit manager Luciano Spalletti, Alessandro Rosina (returning to St Petersburg after a loan spell at Cesena) and Salvatore Bocchetti of Rubin Kazan.

Criscito, Rosina and Bocchetti are all excellent players and Serie A’s loss if Russia’s gain. But can football in ‘the motherland’ improve them as players? Will the experience make them more complete or hinder their progress?

River Plate will not use their traditional shirt next season in Primeira B. They will use one with a black strip instead of the red. The idea is to "keep" the shirt in A (la camisa no desciende - the shirt will not be relegated) so there will be no pics of their shirt in the lower division, and the black will be used to symbol the shame and sadness to play the "B".

It's a ver cynic idea, but thinking about it, it's brilliant.

Edit: My post sounds like it's official, it's not official, just an idea coming from fans.

Followed by River plate relegation, now their FA has revamped league structure.

Quote:
From the 2012/13 season onwards, the first 2 divisions will be merged, and the resulting 38 teams (As, apparently, 2 teams will still be relegated from the second tier this year) will be split into 2 groups. The top 5 in each group will qualify to a "championship phase" along with the 9 clubs with the most points in a general table. The chapionship group defines the champion and those qualified for the Copa Libertadores. The remaining 19 teams will be put together to fight it out for relegation. The bottom four will be relegated.
Almost literal quote from an AFA spokesperson:

Quote:
"The government pays 700m to see the best. We could promote River by law but that would be against the rules of fair play and the history of our federation (ORLY), so we'd rather change the league system to ensure the big clubs are always in the top flight".

Anzhi + Eto = CL football???

Certainly possible, 9 match-days still remaining.

Eto [#99 ] saves the day for Anzhi with a debut tap in coming off the bench after Zhirkov did all the work. Hopefully the start of something great

Dempo buy stakes in Danish football club
Quote:
India's leading industrial group Dempo, which also runs leading I-League football club Dempo FC, on Monday bought 34 percent stakes, worth 12 million euros, in leading Danish soccer club and academy FC Midtjylland, based in Herning and Ikast.

The deal is a long-term commercial and technical partnership between the parties, with the Dempo investment strengthening the club's capital base and in return the club providing technical know-how to Dempo.

"It's a historic day for FC Midtjylland and the start of a new era for the club. The agreement enables us to add value to the continuity of our soccer team and retain our own playing talent longer. We can enhance the level of talent development, and begin truly to internationalise the Academy", Soren Bach, CEO of FC Midtjylland, said in a statement.

Dempo Group chairman Shrinivas Dempo said the investment marks the moment when intent turned into commitment.

"It's kick-off time for the Dempo foray into truly international football. Our agreement is aimed at raising the playing standard of Indian soccer, and this tie-up with a first-rate European academy and team shall spur the development of the game even faster," said Dempo.

The deal has been facilitated and coordinated by the sports management company, New World Consulting, which will be working closely with both Midtjylland and Dempo.

They're probably going to 2nd division in Turkey too. They're selling all their players. Lugano went to PSG, Emenike went to CSKA, Andre Santos went to Arsenal.
