    Christian Vieri being investigated now, apparently...

    Does no one else care about this? Seems pretty massive to me.

    Yeah I've been following it. Seems to be a lot of speculation at the moment though?

    Good luck at Juve, Pogba! :)

    Like I said, the Conte stuff is supposedly from his time at Siena. I don't think Juve, as a club, would be stupid enough to do this kind of thing again. Bonucci may well be a bad apple, but I think it's more likely that anything would be related to his time at a club before he was at Juve.

    If a club that big were stupid enough to do once in this day and age, then they're stupid enough to have done it again imo

    IIRC, the main guy at it last time was Moggi, who obviously has nothing to do with the club now.

    Besiktas have been chucked out of the Europa league for one season for breaking Fifa fair play regulations. Apparently they have been failling to pay players wages.

    Apparently Villareal's new coach has died. Just twitter news so far so not sure if it's definite.

    L'Equipe saying PSG are close to signing Thiago Silva for 40-50m Euros. Could be bollocks, but why on Earth would PSG need players like Thiago Silva to win Ligue 1? I've said it before, but it's like using a sledgehammer to crack a walnut.

    He's amazing, but he's 28 this September. Would be a good bit of business for Milan if they could get 50 million for him, especially when they only paid 11 million IIRC.

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    Barcelona have signed Jordi Alba. Looked a cracking player at the Euros.

    If I'm not mistaken that makes the Spanish first 11 minus David Silva all players from Real Madrid and Barca.

    Whilst that is good for their national team and says a lot about La Masia, it makes me cringe a bit.

    La Liga is a bit of a joke tbh. Still so heavily unfair on the other clubs and it bores me when the big 2 just sign players who've done well at other clubs. I actually think the Prem isn't that bad for this, clubs seem more equal and there are at least 5 clubs big enough to defend themselves against clubs who are after their players.

    Eh? The PL is just as bad. Unless your club is financially doping you have zero chance of winning the PL, Utd excluded temporarily.

    Where did I say anything about winning the thing? :/

    In simpler terms, I prefer there being a big 4-5 over here than what is really just a (really) big 2 in Spain (that's not to say the other clubs aren't big too relatively speaking).

    Isn't that because real madrid and barcalona get to negotiate their own cushy television rights packages which always ensures they have more money than the rest of the league so no-one else can ever compete? Not to mention the rather suspicious way the spanish government has helped out both clubs with debt "management" over the years.

    Here's a good stat for your argument FAN

    La Liga: Gap between 1st and 5th = 44 points

    Premier League: Gap between 1st and 14th = 44 points

    The Italian Super Cup between Juventus and Napoli will be played at the Beijing National Stadium...

    How long before the Charity Shield goes to Doha?

    Didn't they do that last season? I seem to remember watching Milan and Inter play in China. Bit depressing nonetheless.

    In other news, I think Bielsa has left Bilbao. Chelsea no doubt frantically checking if there's a get-out clause in Di Matteo's contract. ;)

    He hasn't won a game in 6 weeks, surely enough reason to get rid.

    A construction worker at the training ground. Seems like he's staying though which is good news.

    So that's Inzaghi, Seedorf, Nesta, Gattuso, van Bommel as well as those two gone this summer. Hell of a rebuild.

    Edit: Though apparently Milan are using the funds to get one of the Man City strikers. Or possibly even RvP.
