Pretty Edin

A very good week at Manchester City FC

  • Monday: Signed Eliaquim Mangala from FC Porto (finally, sob)

  • Tuesday: David Silva signs an extension, keeping him at the club until 2019

  • Wednesday: Vincent Kompany signs an extension, keeping him at the club until 2019

  • Thursday: Sergio Aguero signs an extension, keeping him at the club until 2019

There are rumors that Edin Dzeko also signed an extension and it will be announced on Friday (today).

Very happy! It's better than Christmas LOL!

P.S. Javi Garcia just signed for Zenit St. Petersburg, effectively turning it into Benfica 2.0 circa 2011-2012. We will miss your beautiful smile, Javi bb!


Attention, people of ONTD_FOOTBALL, the good sis lisse_pitch13 and I are proud to present the hierarchy of Die Mannschaft, in honor of their earth shattering claim of the World Cup.

[Note: This is a list for fun so feel free to call them whatever wacky nickname you like.]

Mertesacker retires from international duty to focus on Arsenal

The Gunners centre-back is targeting Premier League and Champions League success at club level as he becomes the third member of Die Mannschaft's World Cup squad to retire

The 29-year-old played 104 times for his country - scoring four goals - and made his final appearance from the substitutes' bench as Joachim Low's team won the World Cup with a 1-0 victory over Argentina.

The centre-back is now targeting the a first Champions League win for the Emirates Stadium outfit, as well as the Premier League title, following their FA Cup triumph in 2013-14.

"The main thing for me was that I wanted to be able to decide when my international career would end after ten years myself," he told Suddeutsche Zeitung.

"I now want to win the Premier League title with Arsenal and make an impact in the Champions League."
