Why is Italian soccer so boring? I saw the 2nd half of the Inter game and there was literally no action. The teams play so defensively it's aggravating.

Italians do play at a very slow pace, but it is kind of an acquired taste. I hated watching Italian soccer when I first got into the sport, but now I kind of enjoy it. It may grow on you.

They're probably getting Eto'o, and they don't need Cole because Clichy is the future. Arsenal has a lot of great young players and they need to keep them intact.

If you are a defender, or enjoy some excellent defensive play, Italian football certainly used to be very enjoyable, there are still some excellent defenders, but it isn't what it once was.

Sure Marco Materazzi is a great defender, but twice he made exaggerated dives and lay on the floor feigning injury even though he literally wasn't touched. I don't respect that and I don't think anyone does, he should get carded for that.

Yes he does, Gudjohnsen and Saviola are on the bench, and he just had a had trick against Real, so I think he will stay as a starter......

Senderos isn't that good and shouldn't be starter quality in the future.
Baptista may not be perminant and he's nearly in his prime.
Letting Cole go was a masterstroke, he is serverely overatted. Arsenal got a lot better (although older) player in Gallas and 5 million.
Henry shouldn't be retiring for at least 5 years, so that isn't really a concern.
Aside from that, your post is acceptable.

For the future I think Walcott, Fabregas, Vela, Lupoli and Denilson will all be solid players at the highest level. Whether that success will be at Arsenal remains to be seen.

Interesting. Does anyone think David Beckham doesnt deserve 250,000,000 dollars from LA GALAXY. Why not give that money to someone younger or better like CHristiano Ronaldo, Thierry Henry, Didier Drogba, Kaka, and thre list really goes on as there or like 500 better players than Beckham.

I dont care how good the marketing strategy seems, its bullshi

No one deserves that kind of money, quite frankly it's disgusting. None of those players listed would move to the MLS, the only reason Beckham did is because he is past it.

You guys underestimate the pulling power of Beckham. Really underrate it.

This guy will make millions for the Galaxy, no question about it. Ask almost anybody to name a footballer and the vast majority would name Beckham. All over the world, he is known. He is worth millions, absolute millions. What he is getting paaid is a pitance to what he will earn for the Galaxy.

Oh, and don't say 'SPL' for the Spanish League, that's actually the offical abbreviation for the Scottish League. Just say Spanish League or La Liga.

Oh, and Spurs are bollocks, how the hell did they manage to bottle it against a **** Chelsea side? That was by far their best chance to make it to the semis, they blew it royally.

I know Beckham isnt even close to being a top player yet alone a top midfielder, and i know we can all name tons of better players but for the MLS and the Galaxy to make money they need his name recognition. If you are trying to win championships you would want players like Drogba, Ronaldo, Henry, etc. But they dont care about winning they want the MLS to grow and make money and Beckham will help the most with that because everyone in America has heard of Beckham, but how many people know of Kaka, Didier Drogba, Steven Gerrard, Deco and Van Nistelrooy maybe 1% of the US population
