Re: General Football Debates!
The way I look at it, Rooney got the three match ban due to that tackle being purposely done than an accident (as we know what he is going through with his father). Anyways not like England are going to win or stand a chance especially with Spain, Germany, and Netherlands being favs.

Giggs is a player, 3 girls at once (his wife, his brothers wife, and Miss Wales)? At 37 years old!! LOL
Messi is currently the best in the world as everyone knows him, that is why he gets criticized a lot. What has Ronlado, Benzema, Higuain, Aguero, Rooney, Cole, Lampard, Terry, Gerrad, Pepe, D. Alves, Mercelo, Di Maria, Vidic, Rio, Rossi, Sanchez, Dezko, Giggs, Dafoe, Owen and so forth done for their nations? Oh, thats right....Nothing. All these guys can perform for there clubs, but not nation. Argentina as a whole is flopping you can't except one person to carry the team. I mean even Pele and Maradona had a decent team to work with when they had their success.
I will cover some fixtures over this past weekend.
Barcelona VS Racing 3-0
Well Barcelona won this game 3-0, it was a special one for Messi as he scored two goals and now is the second top scorer for the club. Xavi added a goal also and Inesita with an assist on his return.
Real Madrid VS Betis - 4-1
Higuain added another hat trick to his list, I think thats 3 in 4 games? he had one before the international break and than one with Argentina and another after the break. I remember last year I had a lot of hope for Higuain, but after his injury never thought he'd be back in shape like this and now he is on fire (one of my personally favs in Madrid). Kaka is also rising and he had a goal to his name. He had an standing ovation when he was getting subbed. it seems Ronaldo is sharing the ball now a days.
Mou is gonna have some trouble, Kaka, Nuri, Ozil, Di Maria? who to pick!
Inter VS Catania - 2-1
Sadly they fellow again 2-1...no chance for them to capture league? Maybe? Maybe not.
AC Milan VS Parma - 3-0
They walked a way with a victory..finally.
Bayern VS Hertha - 4-0
They seem to be getting deadly idk why, but I got this strong feeling Bayern will be either in finals or at least semi-final giving us a great match in UEFA.
Liverpool VS Man U - 1-1
Well not much to say about this...both teams had some players sitting on the bench and Man u having the strongest bench there. Suarez had a good chance, but couldn't capitalize. Da Gea once again silencing critics with a good performance IMO. Also Evra has said that Suarez throw the N word towards him about more than 10 times that game, I guess there is an investigation on this and Evra has made these false accusations before so we will see. I'll leave the rest you Escorp.
Man. City VS Aston Villa - 4-1
What can be said...They finally pulled away from Man U and will face off this weekend? We will see who the top dog is, I'm hoping to see result from Man City
Chelsea VS Everton - 3-1
Is it me, or is the team better without Torres? 8 goals in the past 2 games LOL they have been on fire recently and they wish they could get that game back VS Man U.
Arsenal VS Sunderland - 2-1
Well the gunners seem to be rising they have won 4 of the last 5 games, so good to see results.
Man U VS Galati - 2-0
Galati played well to keep themselves in for about 60 mins till the PK came, actually both goals scored by Man u came from PK, lucky for them and Vidic also received a red. I think the last PK shouldn't have been given, because Rooney could have stayed up, but oh well thats football.
Napoli VS Bayern - 1-1
Really? Bayern first goal scored against them away from home. Neuer was at one point 1000+ mins without conceding a goal. Napoli is fighting I can see Bayern and Napoli advancing from this group, all though city better get results the next game against both.
Real Madrid VS Lyon - 4-0
Khedira? Really? first goal after a whole season and a bit longer. He didn't seems so surprised it was like if he scores on regular basis LOL...I knew Madrid will take this, this group is pretty much theirs and i doubt they will even lose a game.
Inter VS Lille
Well they lost the Serie A fixture, but manage to win their group fixtures for CL, at least some good news for their fans.
Man city VS Villarreal - 2-1
An own goal levelled it for Man city as they were trailing, and than Aguero got subbed on after coming back from an injury and scored in the 90th min to give Man City their first CL victory. Aguero will be Man U's threat IMO for this up coming clash in EPL.
