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, thats why i said i dont care about the marketing plan. HE still dont deserve that much. Everyone knows ZIdane, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho etc. but they would get that much. They wouldnt even play in the MLS tho neways

its hands down Beckham is the most known footballer in the States, without a question. Ronaldhino is no where close because the only people that have seen the Joga Bonita commercials are people that have watched soccer and thats about 10% of the population

Beckham is white, blonde-haired, attractive & has celebrity status. He is the most well-known player in North America and the most marketable.

Congratulations to the supporters of Rangers FC for yet another disgusting, racist and bigoted display today.

Anyone else "up to their knees in Fenian blood?"

Any huns on here?

These rumours are endless in soccer nowadays. All great players are rumoured to be going in all sorts of directions, so now I just ignore it all and wait until they start talking contract money. That's when you know it's legit.

Did anyone see Chelsea's win today, they are only down 6 points now and are still in it for both the FA and UEFA cup. Im impressed with how they have been playing of late, with exception to the draw with Tottenham.

And Chelsea have been playing poorly, but they got the win, that's all that counts. I'd rather play badly and win they play well and get nothing.

Just ask Arsenal fans.

And Berbatov is one of the best players in the premiership right now, he's quality, in fact, you could say he's:

SUPERBERBATOV

It seems like Berbatov and Keane are about to score every time they touch the ball. You have to cross your fingers when Lennon has it in space too, now if they just had some central defence....

Berbatov and Keane seem to have something going, although I feel without European football next year Dimetar will leave, he's too good for Spurs if I'm being honest.

Butyeah, getting King back would be huge, if he plays again that is...

Chelsea might not be playing great but look at the results. Still in Champions League, still in FA cup and is one of 2 teams that can win the EPL title.

So how in anyway is that not good?

I think the third goal that Tottenham scored against them speaks volumes for itself in Chelsea's performance over the season, specifically their defense.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=VA5jQ1Uni...elated&search=

Essien scored an own goal right before it too.

1-0 over Man City isn't overly impressive either, especially when the only goal was a controversial penalty.

Again Man Utd is in so serious trouble for the next few clashes...This will be the true test to see if they have what it takes to be the champs... With Giggsy at the striker who knows how there match with Bolton will turn out

What. The. Hell.

Giggs will not play up front with Rooney, either Smith will play there, we'll play 4-5-1 or ROnaldo will play behind Wayne, with Park and Giggs on the wings.

And TCU, read again what I wrote:

for all the Spurs fans...

This is the time for us to turn it up a notch. Most of the games are winnable and we can definately finish 5th and if we are lucky 4th. Finishing Top 6 is my goal and it is definately do able.

Big game against Chelsea, defiantely can win at the Lane and could send us that much closer to kissin' the cup!

argh, I cant believe the football league are talking about a shootout to end drawn games. I dont think it'll ever happen but the fact it's being mentioned is enough to make me worry. We are dealing with the same person who renamed Division 1 the Championship.
