-use the tags! the brightest minds of the comm all came together to make them lolzy and relevant so it's all ;_; when the posts don't have tags because then how will people look for things more easily?

-content fatigue: basically, y'all don't have to post every little thing that happens with regard to cescgate, ronaldo's baby or the spanish NT on vacation. seriously. unless the baby starts shitting gold or fabregas announces that he's retiring and giving money away to spurs fans to atone for making us miserable or something MAJUH like that try to chill with those topics.

-use the lj-cut: just use the damn thing for multiple photos, or at least resize the one massive picture into something a little smaller.

-i'm gonna be blunt here, some of you have been leaving some questionable comments and i feel this is something one should learn at 11 but w/e, let me say it: gay is not another word for bad/stupid/ugly. quit it.

Who wants Mesut Ozil?

Werder Bremen Ready for Ozil Offers

Werder Bremen are ready to listen to offers for their German international playmaker, Mesut Ozil, the club's sporting director Klaus Allofs admitted on Sunday. The German first division side had been hoping to extend the 21-year-old's contract but with negotiations having hit a wall, they are now bracing themselves for his exit.

"I can imagine that in the coming weeks or just before the transfer window closes, one club or another will begin to press us a little harder," said Aloffs, according to sports agency SID, an affiliate of AFP. "We will have to listen to those offers if that is what Mesut and his advisors want.

"As for our discussions (with Ozil), we have not been able to reach an agreement."

Ozil was one of the stars of the recent World Cup in South Africa when he was at the heart of the German team which came third. Various clubs have been linked with him this summer, notably, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United and Arsenal.

Stars to miss Europa opener

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson says he won't risk any of his squad's 2010 FIFA World Cup™ stars in their early Europa League qualifier. Hodgson's team face a third qualifying round clash against either Macedonian side Rabotnicki or Armenia's Mika later this month in what will be the former Fulham manager's first competitive match in charge of the Reds.

With the first leg scheduled for 29 July, Hodgson knows he is going to have to kick off without Steven Gerrard, Javier Mascherano, Jose Reina, Dirk Kuyt, Ryan Babel, Daniel Agger, Glen Johnson, Jamie Carragher and already-injured Fernando Torres. Hodgson's medical staff have warned him about forcing those players back into action too early after their gruelling season finally came to an end in South Africa earlier this month.

The sports science people are advising me not to use the players from the World Cup. Therefore new signings would become important for the Europa League.
Roy Hodgson on Liverpool's selection problems
"Possibly none of our World Cup players will play in the early Europa Cup games if we listen to the advice of the sports science people," Hodgson said. "They are telling me we would be very foolhardy to use players who have only been training for three or four days on the back of the World Cup that early on because that will affect us further on down the road. If we feel we are endangering our chances of doing well in the Premier League by risking players in the early stage of the Europa League, it will be a decision the club will have to take. You have to follow the guidance."

Gerrard, Carragher, Johnson and Agger will start individual fitness programmes at the club's Melwood training ground soon, but Mascherano, Reina, Kuyt and Babel will not return until after the Europa League first leg has been played. "Their [medical staff's] advice is to not use these players," Hodgson said. "If we have enough players to put a team out without them is another question. Things can happen before 29 July; we will not be speculating on that and there is no point in me making predictions of what the team will be like for that game. The sports science people are advising me not to use the players from the World Cup. Therefore new signings would become important for the Europa League."
