I can't think why. All he does is score penalties against rubbish teams - having dived to win the penalties in the first place. And he can't speak properly.....

...or at least that is the 'considered view' of Neanderthal "football fans" in this country.

He was a target for the Real in january. But Tottenham asked 350 millions (euros). A price too expensive, even for a Real without forwards.

He has a good fame in my country. Maybe this one is simple marketing, but it works for the people. Sell him cheap and so we check if he's so useless

I've consulted the manual and it says:

Extract from the manual for the All things Football (soccer) related forum:

Chapter 6

7(b)iii ...... if some Scottish smart arse mentions English Rugby in a derogatory manner (following a defeat by, or crappy draw with, Scotland) any post is to be removed by the moderators of the forum immediately.

Speaking of manuals and rule books, I wonder if anyone can assist. I am trying to find where, in the laws of the game, it says that Manchester City MUST be drawn against the weakest team remaining in any cup competition they contest. I can't find any such reference and yet the 'rule' appears to be carried out religiously.....

This is getting truly ridiculous....

I was joking obviously. But as for your question, I don't know, maybe the football gods blatantly support only the richest and the strongest, they must be some ancient gods in their bias. I used to expect Man U always getting the easiest route when they were at the top of their game, and sure enough, they always did.

Sadly I wasn't - Spurs are, by some margin, the weakest team remaining.

The remaining eight are all fine teams in their right, with Ajax and Porto perhaps the ones that are the weakest, if that term can be used, then Man U and Spurs perhaps, but at one level higher. Then Juve and Liverpool, with Barca and City the likely finalists. My 0.02.

I've said it before. So why anyone is surprised eludes me.

Besides, who cares anyway. Football is a dumb game, that no sane adult would enjoy.

Bah!

believe me, given the response of most people here to that farce, there is little an outsider can add. Its not just a bad defeat etc, it was the utterly inept manner of it.

but I have read at least one post by someone who seemed convinced it was but a combination of a couple of injuries and the pitch (I think the roof was mentioned to). My working assumption was that was by McLeish as its a pretty unique take on events.
