Re: Postponed Football Matches News + Transfer News
Euh, I know Fab entered as replacement for Xavi Alonso and that too, in the extra-time but how can Iniesta be out? He score the winning goal.

Also, the fact that your 4-3-3 with Busquetz worked so well was because, despite Alves and Abidal getting offensive at times, Busquets covered them and Messi went a bit more midfield. Thus (they alternated into a 3-5-2. With Fabregas, I don't think it will have been that good. In fact, they could have done this strategy long before, with Messi coming back as offensive midfielder or winger and Affelay instead of Busquets. But I think Pep knows that it might be suicidal to remove a defensive core like Busquets for another offense player in a big match.
Well, Manchester has a balanced calender - Big Premier League Matches 1st Round (1st 10 Weeks), CL group stages (After 10 Weeks till December), Boxing Day, Big Premier League Matches 2nd Round (January-Mid March), Eliminatory CL matches (March-ill afterwards).
Manchester plays all their big matches early on in the season. If they win both rounds, I think they'll clinch the Premier League title easily. Unfortunately, Manchester also got some handy of injuries right now - Chicharito (1 month), Valencia, Fletcher notably.
Well, Arsenal last chance to get Premier League with their young players constructive project was missed in the last 15 weeks of the season. I remember once stating in 2007 that - Arsenal is a team that will dominate in 2010-2012 and will be reckoned as a deadly force. At this time, Arsenal had only young players and even Fabregas was quite unknown. Well, I think that if Arsenal had to be champions, they should have been already. Now, the bus is missed. So, obviously Wenger is frustrated. His project and idea deserve applaud but ideas goes into history only if they are successful - success being the only thing they didn't had.
Vidic also stated like me that the title will be played most likely between United, City and Chelsea. While some die-hard Liverpool fans still believe in my school, they don't stand much of a chance.
I don't Jadson but I've do seen of Juan Mata. Pretty good player indeed. Another Spanish lad who impressed me is Llorente.
On the transfer notes, I think that once Sneijder, Fabregas and Nasri goes out, the transfer will be mostly about young talents, especially Brazilians ones and Spanish ones.
