Macheda is never going too develop unless he passes, I think Nemanja Matic is a future Chelsea star, I've seen him play and he's good.

I don't rate Macheda at all. Here has been there for a few years and not really contributed much to the club.

Hmm, I think Darron Gibson is getting better, He's a cracking player.

People are already getting too excited about Hernandez.

Fabio, Macheda is still only 19 and he has scored three important goals in a limited number of appearances. I'm still undecided on him at the moment after that promising start.

As for Gibson, I've been saying he was good since the start of last season. He is a great player. He shoots from long range a bit too often though.

I really want SAF to sign Bale for some reason now. balebalebalebalebalebalebalebalebalebale. Hopefully some random kid turns up to a match with a 'Buy Bale' sign or maybe I'll just do it.

I think Manchester united youth squad is hardly amazing, I think Arsenal's is great.

[QUOTE=Prometheus;6248147]Cardiff and QPR Are surely going too be promoted.[/QUOTE]

We've messed it up in two successive seasons, so whilst I'm over the moon to see us joint top and build up a gap, we've got a tough run in now with Norwich, the Jacks, Reading, Sc*nthorpe and QPR to play by the end of November.

The problem with Arsenal is they don't have much other than youth.

I agree, They always use youth sides, I think West hams Obinna is good.

Well that Nani goal is all we'll be hearing about for a few days.

It was given by the same referee who disallowed Pedro Mendes' goal a few years ago.

Here, Madrid and Barça won (1-3 for Madrid with a min. 80 surge to finish a match Hércules had ruled since min. 3; 5-0 for Barça against a laughable Sevilla- I predicted a 4-0, darn it). Meanwhile, Valencia is falling behind- they tied at home against a relegation-stinking Zaragoza. It seems that the only credible opposition left is Villarreal.

I just saw that goal. Why did the keeper just leave the ball in the ground if it was still on play?

Wow, are Sevilla that bad this year? First they get kicked out of the CL by SC Braga, now they get hammered like that? :/

They are worse than they used to be, but, in their favour, they had collected two 4-0 in the previous two years when playing Barça at the Camp Nou, so it's not that horrible.

He thought it was a free kick so he placed it on the ground to take it.

Yes. And it's thanks to that 5-1 win that i'm stuck inside and sober tonight. I made the mistake of going to the pub to watch it with my Sunderland-supporting friends.

Let's just say that after how woeful Sunderland were today my friends don't feel much like going out drinking.

Fair play to Newcastle though, they played very well (And played as a team). Sunderland though, were very very poor. My mate said it was the worst he'd ever seen them play during a derby match.

Apparently he's not regained full fitness, so Bruce has been bringing him on as a sub to give him game time bit by bit.

Still a bit of a waste of £13m if you ask me.

Nah, I don't.

I did have a Valencia shirt that somebody brought back from holiday for me when I was like 8 or 9 years old but I grew out of it and it got thrown out years ago.

I don't see what all the fuss about Liverpool is tbh. They'll get themselves out of the mess they're in eventually and finish comfortably in the top half.

The takeover seems to have injected some much-needed confidence into the players anyway, not a great performance against Bolton but a valuable 3 points.

Torres doesn't want to be there. He's getting frustrated and he's lost his form, his mind's elsewhere.

If he doesn't leave in Jan i'll be surprised. If he's still there next season i'll be gobsmacked.

In all fairness, Gyan is a bit overrated because of the world cup, he hadn't done much special before then.

I don't buy kits personally but football shirts are the only shirts I ever wear. I'm wearing the 09/10 Man Utd home kit (with Berbatov printed on it) now. :D

Not many bigs transfers happen in January so he'll probably leave in the summer.

Reina & Torres have been linked with surprise moves to Man Utd.
