Super Mario Wins it in 113
So the best team won the World Cup and Brazil 2014 will go down in history as one of the finest tournaments in recent memory, with a memorable chest down volley by Mario Gotze.
Selling of Suarez
This seems just like the Bale leaving Tottenham Hotspurs situation. One world-class player replaced by many good players, and we all know what happened there, they almost come seventh. LOL.
Return of Dunga (backward step)
He was fired by the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) after losing to the Netherlands in the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup.
Four years later, he returns. Clearly, Brazil is recycling coaches. Do hope he ain’t get embarrass like Big Phil.
James to Madrid
Rodriguez was one of the revelations of the World Cup, scoring in each of Colombia’s games as they reached the quarterfinals of the competition for the very first time — eventually losing 2-1 to hosts Brazil.
As for Madrid supporters, I think it can be a good as well as a bad news. James is good, no doubt about it, but I can’t see ISCO sitting on the bench because he is world class and selling him will be one of the biggest mistake. He is a superb footballer — a rare talent that would improve any team. Ancelotti has made pretty good decisions and many bad ones. I hope he can keep hold of him and give him the playing time that he deserves.
Departure of the Old Guard
The old guard has gone … Ferdinand, Vidic & Evra had great times together. I won many bets against Randolph “Sticky” Williams against Arsenal, especially sitting and arguing for that old guard.
The young lads are ready. I believe they will now blossom at MANCHESTER United.
Evra was long, long over due
Ever since the signing of Luke Shaw, the writing appeared to be on the wall for Evra. He signed a contract extension, but even that felt moot.
A 33-year-old player with the odour of David Moyes’ horror season very much on him just did not look likely to fit into my long-live-team Manu plans. Perhaps he will enjoy an Indian summer in Italy, but United have surely done very well to decide to move him on and more are likely to follow.
Better days ahead for Manu
Evra will not be the last player to leave Old Trafford this summer.
When asked whether there would be any player departures, the CEO responded, “Yes, I think so, the manager makes that decision and a few players have already gone and there may well be a few others that go.”
Van Gaal is also looking at Daley Blind (Holland) who can, of course, play left-back or left wing-back as well as defensive midfield, Matt Hummels (Germany) and Ron VLaar (Holland) best central defenders in the just concluded World Cup, Vidal from (Chile) just a few to mention.
With the rebuilding of my team for life, MANCHESTER UNITED, led by Cool, Calm and Tactical manager of all times signing inform players of the 2014 world cup teams, Arsenal adding Alexis Sancez and looking to add more Germans, Liverpool raiding Southhampton Team and Man City adding much needed tactical players.
I expect the most popular league in the WORLD the EPL will be unpredictable again going right down the final day.
Another talking point, $80 million man Suarez going to Barcelona along with Neymar and Messi and James Rodriquez going to Real Madrid along with CR7 and Bale.
The La Liga season will be one of the most anticipated in history.
