boys on the ground

Picspamming does not just have to be a spectator sport, so if you have pics of players on the ground, please share to your heart's content ♥  Down there, the more the merrier!

Warning: Image heavy to the near-100 count
It's also rather Real Madrid & Spanish NT biased, just a heads up.
(and slashier than orignally intended, but I don't think that's bad)

Atletico Madrid Offer Luis Garcia To Tottenham

Atleti's Little Luis might be on his way back to England next month...

The Daily Mail reports that Atletico Madrid attacker Luis Garcia could be set for a loan switch to Tottenham Hotspur in January.

The Spanish international has struggled to make an impact during his second spell at the Vicente Calderon, as the likes of Simao and Maxi Rodriguez are well ahead of him in the pecking order.

Thus, los Colchoneres have offered the former Liverpool favourite to a number of Premier League clubs, including Blackburn Rovers, Middlesbrough and Portsmouth.

But Spurs are thought to be the chief target, as manager Harry Redknapp has made no secret of his desire to recruit a new left-winger during the winter.

The former Pompey boss has been hounding Boro for Stewart Downing, the 24-year-old English international, but the Teesside club remain reluctant to sell one of their high-profile youth products.

And with the Lilywhites' transfer kitty looking rather empty at the minute, a six-month deal for the experienced and wily Garcia may be just the ticket.

The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup
I say a little prayer for you
While combing my hair, now,
And wondering what dress to wear, now,
I say a little prayer for you

Forever, forever, you'll stay in my heart
and I will love you
Forever, forever, we never will part
Oh, how I'll love you
Together, together, that's how it must be
To live without you
Would only be heartbreak for me.


I run for the bus, dear,
While riding I think of us, dear,
I say a little prayer for you.
At work I just take time
And all through my coffee break-time,
I say a little prayer for you.

Forever, forever, you'll stay in my heart
and I will love you
Forever, forever we never will part
Oh, how I'll love you
Together, together, that's how it must be
To live without you
Would only be heartbreak for me.

My darling believe me,
For me there is no one
But you.

Euro 2008 Games

Hello everyone, this is my first time making a post and I'm sorry to say it's a request. I was wondering if anyone knew some download links or something like that for the Euro 2008 games. All the games would be great or whatever can be found. I can download from anything but torrents, so if anyone can point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you to anyone who can help me.

you think you have seen everything?

Have you seen these thing from Spain's Euro2008 trip?

- Silva screaming "puta!" after a missed opportunity?
- Casillas almost crying after their winning?
- Aragones shouting to players all the time?
- Ballack annoying Puyol?
- Silva in his underwears?
- Dani Güiza's penis?

If you haven't seen these things or you just wanna have fun and see a great video of Spain's Euro2008 trip, download this video.
It's a big file, it took me 1h 45mins to download it, but the vid it 90 minutes long and really worth the downloading! Thanks a_lenchen for the link!
Have fun girls! Let this be my New Year present for you, I'm too lazy for doing a picspam or something. ;)

Review in Teams

59years after topping the Egyptian Premier League for the first time, Al Ahly added to their record tally of titles by claiming a fourth successive league championship, their 33rd overall. Although their year ended on a flat note with a poor FIFA Club World Cup campaign, the Cairo giants have now won three times more domestic titles than their great rivals, Zamalek.
48years after the Copa Libertadores was established, South America's elite club competition's first-ever Ecuadorian winners were crowned in July. Liga de Quito were the club to make history, beating Fluminese on penalties to become only the third team from outside Brazil and Argentina to lift the Libertadores in the past 17 years.
44years without a major trophy ended for Spain this summer when they ditched their reputation as international football's great underachievers with victory at UEFA EURO 2008. The 1-0 final win over Germany proved merely to be the high point of a year to remember for La Furia Roja, one that also witnessed them establish a new unbeaten record of 38 matches in FIFA World Cup™ qualifiers, score their 200th preliminary goal and go 715 minutes without conceding.
31games unbeaten took Standard Liege to their first Belgian league title in 25 years, with a 2-0 win over Anderlecht on 20 April clinching glory. This season, however, Standard are the team doing the chasing, with Anderlecht currently leading the Jupiler League by four points.
23major trophies have now been brought to Manchester United during Sir Alex Ferguson's reign, this after a year to remember for the English giants and their Scottish manager. Not only did 2008 bring the 10th Premier League title and second UEFA Champions League crown of Ferguson's tenure; it ended with the Red Devils clutching their first-ever FIFA Club World Cup after victory at Japan 2008.
18years ago, Hoffenheim were an eighth-tier amateur team playing their football in utter obscurity. Today, at the halfway point in the Bundesliga, they sit proudly at the summit of the German top flight, having held off Bayern Munich for the title of Herbstmeisters. Can they hold on to top spot? All will be revealed in 2009.
5years is all Hull City needed to climb from the bottom rung of English football to its top tier, clinching promotion to the Premier League in a dramatic Championship play-off back in May. The Tigers are also making the most of their first season in the top flight for 104 years, with a superb first half of the season having left them perched just below Arsenal in sixth position.

'08 *SOCCER* stories of the year

I'm all about these "year in reviews" today
this one seems like it was written by an american journalist, so uh, yeah

The year of 2008 brought plenty of drama to the world of soccer, both on and off the field.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi pushed the boundaries of personal performance to levels not seen since Zinedine Zidane’s peak, with Manchester United and Barcelona respectively reaping the benefits. A dramatic conclusion to the UEFA Champions League and a magnificently played European Championships lit up the middle of the year.

In a few days, the January transfer window will re-open and the real effects of the global credit crunch may be felt. A few big spenders like Real Madrid and Manchester City might be needed to splash out some cash and kick the transfer market to life.

Here, we look back at 2008 and reflect on the entertaining year that was.

Top 10 stories of 2008

10. Altidore heads to Spain: European clubs are increasingly looking to North America as a fertile breeding ground for bargains. Villarreal, the enterprising Spanish club that regularly matches bigger rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona both at home and in the Champions League, spent $10 million in June to land Jozy Altidore from the New York Red Bulls. Altidore has become a valuable member of the Villarreal squad and hopes for an increased role as the La Liga season wears on.

9. Rule change threatens Olympic soccer: On the eve of the Beijing Games tournament, Barcelona, Schalke and Werder Bremen won a landmark decision in the Court of Arbitration for Sport that allowed them to withdraw their players from the Olympics. The upshot is that future tournaments are likely to have even less relevance, with the best under-23 players in the world set to be kept at home by their clubs. FIFA is to blame. Olympic men’s soccer does has its place and it would be sad if it is reduced to a meaningless sideshow.

8. Arabs buy Manchester City: Just when we thought money madness couldn’t tighten its grip on soccer any further, along came the multi-billionaire Abu Dhabi United group to buy Manchester City and turn the transfer market on its head. With wealth that far outstrips any other club owner in the world, the Arab oligarchs can and will pay the biggest transfer fees and top wages in a bid to build a squad capable of competing for major honors. Performances so far this season have been bad enough to sink the team into the English Premier League’s relegation zone, but that situation won’t last long once some of Europe’s biggest names arrive in January and next summer.

Gerrard's battle to breathe in claustrophobic city

The high-profile leader of a Liverpool side seeking to end their title drought does not have it easy off the pitch, writes Sam Wallace

Tuesday, 30 December 2008

When he sat in his police cell in Southport yesterday, Steven Gerrard will have had plenty of time to reflect on what the previous 24 hours had served up for him and, beyond all the usual worries about the welfare of his wife, children and friends, there will doubtless have been another looming concern. The title race. Because in Liverpool nothing can be allowed to shake the team's sense of purpose.

Top at the halfway point, Liverpool are only just starting to believe that this could be their year after 17 seasons of waiting. Two goals from Gerrard in the 5-1 thrashing of Newcastle, Chelsea drawing at Fulham – no wonder Gerrard felt like celebrating on Sunday night. Let's not get carried away: one altercation in Southport does not undo all that. But it lays that seed of doubt that when everything should be going smoothly – when at last the momentum is building – something like this comes along to make you wonder whether Liverpool are ever going to get a break.

Inter Milan are preparing to make a January move for Newcastle striker Michael Owen.

San Siro boss Jose Mourinho has been told he will have to wait until the end of the season before the club can secure their first choice: Didier Drogba.

The Italians are confident they can tie up a deal for Drogba in the summer after the Ivory Coast striker further upset Chelsea this week by claiming he was not given support when his grandmother died in June.

Mourinho, determined to strengthen his attack before February's Champions League showdown with Manchester United, has turned to England striker Owen.

The 29-year-old is out of contract at St James' Park in the summer and has so far turned down an extended deal, meaning Inter could get him on the cheap.

The Italian champions intend to offer David Suazo as part exchange. The Honduras striker is currently on loan at Benfica, where he has scored five in nine appearances.

And although the 29-year-old has indicated he would like to stay in Portugal until the end of the season, Corriere dello Sport report that he would be interested in a switch to Newcastle.

Aston Villa and Everton are also keeping tabs on Suazo, who was jointly named Serie A foreign footballer of the year in 2006 - with AC Milan's brilliant Brazilian Kaka - but he struggled for form last season and was not part of Jose Mourinho's plans this season.

Former Chelsea striker Hernan Crespo would be another striker on offer. He has been told he can leave Inter by technical director Marco Branca.

Brazil striker Adriano is also out of favour, but may prefer a six-month loan back to Brazil with Flamengo.

However, Adriano's girlfriend has claimed Chelsea are interested in taking him to Stamford Bridge and he may be offered as part of the move for Drogba.
