Reina & Torres have been linked with surprise moves to Man Utd.
The Catalonian newspapers here are talking about getting Torres, Pedro and Villa together in Barcelona. But those rumours are as good as anybody else's.

Well even though Ibra will still probably move permananently to Milan, he is still contracted to Barcelona. If they move for Torres then they're just hogging all the talent. :(

Come to think of it, I can't remember any successful Spanish Man Utd players.

He's a world class striker, its easy for him anywhere. Being in a lower quality division would only damage his career.

If he doesn't really want to go to Man Utd then it would be nice for him to move back to Atletico.

Pique was a successful Spaniard at Man Utd....Just not much of his success came at Utd. I very much doubt Torres will end up anywhere other than Chelsea or Man City in England. Far more likely to se him at one of the other European super clubs.

Lol tTrres would score hattricks every game over in Holland, i mean i'm probably good enough to play over there. Remember the useless Middlesbrough striker Alves? He was amazing over in Holland, terrible here.

As for my team, Norwich. Still sitting in the top 6 even after a 3 - 1 loss to Cardiff on the weekend.

What about Manchester United? I don't know the possibilities, but I would love to see how he would do at Old Trafford.

Yeah. The Eredivisie has degraded a little since the golden days. And most of the good players set their sights on European Glory elsewhere. So yeah. That's the prospect for The Dutch Eredivisie.

Anything's possible but Manchester United are about are actually in a worse financial position than I am. I mean they're 700+million in the red atm. On top of that they're only just about managing to hold onto one superstar striker as it is.

Your lot weren't too bad tbf. I think you'll be fighting for a play off place by the end of the season. Hoolahan took a nasty boot to the face after he headed it in.

Next up for us is the jacks, who are on good form themselves. It's also made all the more harder after Bothroyd got stupidly booked and suspended for 5 yellows.

Ah yes, Pique.

Alves was such a waste of money, even Lee Dong **** was better than him.

Norwich are in the premiership after back-to-back promotions on my FM 2010 now, the fact I gave them £500mil has nothing to do with it though.

Even though we are in lots of debt, we can still spend money. We spent £7mil on a not so long ago homeless person so the Glazers obviously still want to pump money into the club.

Torres should be playing for the likes of Valencia, I suggest Atletico Bilboa.

He's much too good for Bilbao. Also, unless I'm mistaken, he isn't Basque so they wouldn't sign him anyway.

Nah, you aren't mistaken, they aren't signing anybody outside of the Basque Country. May sound a self-imposed stupid limitation but hey, they have never been relegated. Their youth system must not be that bad.

Good win for Manchester United. Glad it was more than one goal in the difference and Bebe scored again. Interesting.

They have won La Liga not too long ago, if I'm not mistaken.

Hehe, looks like Bebé is showing something now.

Lyon must be going through a large river of crap. They were losing 4-0 against Benfica who aren't playing 1/3 of what they did last year. The final result was 4-3, but hell, it's still bad.

I'm still amazed to see the attempted theft suffered by Madrid in San Siro. Honestly, Howard Webb should work as a gardener, I'm sure he'd do it a million times better than refereeing. The second Milan goal was offside by a couple of miles and half of the Italian team should have been sent off by halftime.
And yes, I hate Real Madrid, but this... this was pathetic. Seriously.

Meanwhile, Olympique Marseille murdered some Zilina guys by 7-0 o_o

Hargreaves starts for the first time since who knows and he has to go off six minutes in.

He seems like such a waste of money at the moment.

So awesomely nice. Sporting CP's out of the fight for the Championship title with only 10 matches out of 30 played. The point difference to the 1st placed is 13 already. And we had a major chance of grabbing the 2nd place this week due to FC Porto hammering the championship holders Benfica by 5-0(!!!!!) and we lost 2-3 against the team now placed in 2nd, with that same team turning a 2-0 into 2-3 in the last 15 minutes.

So awesomely nice.

Meanwhile, Barça is suffering a robbery against Villarreal- the referee mysteriously saw an offside right before a defender tried to stop Messi from being left alone to gift Pedro a goal (except... you shouldn't have to avoid a defender if you are offside). Right after that, Villarreal tied the match. The people at the Camp Nou is asking for his immediate assassination XD

-Sorry Went-

I just saw that Portugal just destroyed Spain 4-0 in an international friendly. :/ Where was that in the cup? Not that I root for Portugal or C. Ronaldo or anything, but that score surprised me.

Portugal didn't have home advantage and the players had a goal on their minds- the cup. Yesterday it was a friendly match to advertise the Spain-Portugal candidature for the 2018 World Cup. The context is highly different XD

^ this.

And one of the reasons I hate Nani: yesterday's "I-want-to-score-not-Ronaldo" disallowed goal scored by C. Ronaldo. I mean, WHY? Nani is too selfish, really. The second referee misjudged a blatant TRUE goal, which crossed the line before Nani interfered. It would've been a great goal by C. Ronaldo.

Though I got to say, Portugal played beautifully yesterday.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Messi scored a last-minute goal against a young Brazilian team. Brazil, overall, played way better and deserved at least a tie. Both teams showed improvements from the World Cup fail.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

France beat England 1-2 away at Wembley, which I previously expected, since France is a new team under the promising Laurent Blanc. They played much better than England, though the home team had some chances from Gerrard, and the late goal by Peter Crouch, who was substituted in way too late.
