The Boys of Liverpool Relive Childhood Memories

With Liverpool's new home strip for 2010-12 finally being made public this week, we asked five of our most popular players to lift the lid on their first kit.

Dirk Kuyt's first kit: "It was probably an AC Milan shirt because at the time they had van Basten, Gullit and Rijkaard. I used to have those names on the back. These days my kids have the Liverpool home, away and third kits. They love running around in them and wear them every time they go to the match."

I need help and quick

Hello everyone,

sorry this is no news but I hope you will still help me out.
Since I will go to a charity match in May I need a Zidane jersey very very fast. Sadly the only jerseys I can find are either size XL or more or they are these new editions from 2008 or 2010. I however want an original jersey, one that he had while he was playing. It doesn't matter to me if it is Real Madrid or France. (or anything else, but those will be even harder to find)
Also I wear size S. So I would look ridiculous in an XL shirt. *LOL*

I would be very happy if someone could help me. On ebay I only found one potential shirt and it seems they only deliver it to France, argh!
Also it should be located in Europe, because I fear a shirt from the US or anywhere else would take too long to be delivered.

Thanks in advance and I hope this won't be deleted.

Germans being typical

With cheap ticket prices and sound financial management, the Bundesliga is the antithesis of the Premier League

In Germany the fan is king. The Bundesliga has the lowest ticket prices and the highest average attendance of Europe's five major leagues. At Borussia Dortmund their giant stand holds 26,000 and costs little more than £10 for admission. Clubs limit the number of season tickets to ensure everyone has a chance to see the games, and the away team has the right to 10% of the available capacity. Match tickets double as free rail passes with supporters travelling in a relaxed atmosphere in which they can sing, drink beer to wash down their sausages, and are generally treated as desirables: a philosophy English fans can only dream of.

A pretty interesting article, IMO and not at all as TL;DR as it appears.

prepare yourself you may just collapse on the floor laughing......


MANCHESTER CITY are preparing to break the British transfer record with a sensational bid for Cesc Fabregas.

City's move for the Arsenal midfielder was authorised by owner Sheikh Mansour during a meeting with key personnel this week.

Although their swoop for Fabregas is dependent on a top-four finish, they plan to start the bidding at £50m in an attempt to see off Barcelona.

City now have a "1-2-3 wishlist" of world class targets that is topped by Fabregas, followed by Ferdnando Torres and Barca striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Although Fabregas has made it clear he wants to return to Barca if he quits Arsenal, City have been undeterred after taking initial soundings.

The Arsenal skipper has made it clear his next move is not about money and that he wants to win league titles and compete for the Champions League.

City intend to make "three or four impact signings" in the summer as they aim for a crack at the title next season.

They are convinced that if they can finish fourth they will be able to attract the calibre of player that can win the Premier League title.

Fabregas is the personal choice of Mansour, who wants to add creativity to City's midfield, but other signings are on the way.
