No worries.

Luka Modric is a cunt. I admit I want to see him in Chelsea, but I'm fed up with players who think it's their right not honor their contract. He wants to leave, okay I'm fine with that, but he shouldn't blast Levy for not selling him when only last summer he signed a six year contract.

Even if there was a "gentleman's agreement" to let him go if a big club comes in. You signed a contract, you abide by it. He's acting like he's being victimized. Cunt. I hope Spurs don't sell.

You really skipped Math didn't you ? :D

I don't think it's math.

What does math have to do with the fact that "manutd fan" does, in fact, not support City? :D

Unless he was referring to Utd with the nickname Man Shitty. Then in that case he's just really good with nicknames.

I'm going to assume that you had a mental break down, so I'll let you off the City comment.

Carlos Tevez's advisor Kia Joorabchian claims a deal to take the Manchester City captain back to Corinthians is "close" and that the player is helping drive the deal.

The Brazilian club have tabled a £40 million offer after being alerted by Tevez's admission earlier this month that he wished to leave City for the sake of his family.

A move to a club in Europe had appeared the Argentina international's most likely route out of Manchester until it was confirmed last night that Corinthians were attempting to resign a player who played for them between January 2005 and August 2006.

"Corinthians made the offer, now it depends only on Manchester City. City have to make a decision," Joorabchian told www.espn.com.br.

"Everybody is working to make this happen, me, Corinthians, Tevez and Adrian Ruocco (another of Tevez's representatives).

"It is impossible to determine the situation, but I think it's close."

Regardless of who it's "aimed at" I still enjoy it more. The gameplay the passion the fans, it's far more entertaining than the Premiership for me. Too many teams in the EPL have the Bolton "let's kick the fuck out of you and the ball tactic because we dont really have anyone who can play football in our squads" then you have fans creating fuck all atmosphere even when sold out (Arsenal, ManUtd).

In Serie A the game is slower but I think anyone would be foolish to not admit this allows for far more skill and impressive goals and team play, not all based on kick and run. Then the fans, when a team wins a title, be it for the first or the twenty first time, they go absolutely crazy, fill the streets with people, cars, mopeds, flags, flares, fireworks, beeping horns left right and centre... I only need quote the FA Cup's most recent victors to show the difference.

Then, rivalries, ohhh the rivalries. Manchester United - Liverpool? Fuck off, Genoa held a frigging funeral for Sampdoria!

I'm amazed that anyone took that serious...

The atmosphere in the EPL is better than Italy (and Spain). If you don't believe me, look for quotes on players that have played in various leagues.

I went to Milan/Juve in 03 and the whistling is extremely loud, the colours are great, but in terms of fan interation it's nothing compared to atmosphere's in the UK, where you'll often find supporters screaming for a corner kick :lol:

Anyone who thinks Bolton still play the "kick you off the pitch" style is ignorant and clearly hasn't watched them in a long time. They play some good stuff.

United fans don't throw shit. Please, if you're going to argue, then atleast know what the fook you're talking about.

Are you serious? You are judging fan atmosphere in Italy based on a CL Final you watched IN the U.K? :fp::lol:

If anything, it proves how dull the U.K. actually is, especially considering almost half of the crowd who attended were from the U.K.

cmon man utd fan.... nuetral site games out of country are always lame in terms of atmosphere

I've been to both serie a and EPL games. English sing more. Which is hardly a sign of 'cheering louder'. Just a sign of questionable sexual preference in IMO. Men singing songs about other men... ehhhhhh

I've actually found Serie A games to be more profain, lol.

I was using it as an example that everyone is familiar with, a tactic many teams still adopt: Wolves, Wigan, Stoke, Blackburn.

As for the CL final in 03, was that not based on the fact it was such a dire, dull (as a result of both team's excellent defending) match? If not fair enough but I'm sure that must have had an effect upon it.

I've watched plenty of games this season in Serie A, and been to three (at San Siro) where the fans noise is incessant regardless of the attendance figures. Then at the very top end of the scale you have the likes of the Partenopei faithful who take 10,000 fans to Bologna and turn it into a home game, then the atmosphere in the 4-3 with Lazio was just incredible, nothing the likes of which I've seen in the Premiership.

There's other news around that what Corinthians really offered was a one-year loan, like Robinho deal to Santos. Seems more realistic.

Anyway, Kia, MSI and all these shady people and groups, connected with Boris Berezovsky, have a close relationship with Corinthians and Tévez, so one can't rule out they are putting money on this.
