New season time.
New season time.
Yawn boring thread.
Everything a man should be. We miss you Cipe.
18 F.C. Internazionale Milano 18
Exciting young Korean forward from Hamburg to keep an eye on: Heung Min Son (18 years)
Unfortunately he injured himself due to a collision with fucking Terry who with Carvalho was owned by him before and will miss the beginning of the season.
Werder Bremen hold 0-0 in Bayern without Mertesacker, Naldo and Pizarro. Due to live ticker they were even better.
@ Contento& Bayern
34 seconds and Hoffenheim scores!
Great start for Bundesliga champions!
Looks like Van Gaal is still suffering, even though it has been a long time since the CL Final.
TI TE DOMINET MILAN
They won it finally.
More importantly our opponent Bremen are in extremely poor form, losing 1-4 against Hannover...
Werder Bremen are heating up against Hamburg, leading 2-0 after 30 minutes. Goals: Marin and Almeida
Mainz WTF! Unbelievable start.
IO SONO INTERISTA
Y'all let me say my piece for this section & then I'm done:
1. The German Bundesliga is the most overrated, wannabe-top-notch but at the same time degenerate league, we have in Europe. Basically a league full of nobodies who are struggling to have a position in the European 1st class football, but never manage to be one. Just because a few dudes in the national team had a couple of "good" games in the recent World Cup, doesn't mean the league is now full of super fly talents. And don't say Oezil & Khedira are now playing in Madrid. Mardid is a bad measuring factor cuz they buy everybody. So it doesn't mean anything.
2. If you have Bayern fuckin' Munich with 22 titles (4 stars on their jersey, lololol... as if more stars is gonna make them a bigger prick) & then the 2nd team 1.FC Nürnberg with 9 titles, then something is seriously going wrong over there.
3. As you know, great players tend to change their clubs at the end of their careers & boost some more money while they still can run. Most move to UAE, Turkey or Rivaldo even to Uzbekistan BUT... a 33 year old Raul moves to Germany (Schalke), who is allegedly one of the "good" teams in that shitty league & he is automatically guaranteed a starting position. So y'all get my point? It's class difference!
4. Ever wondered why you don't have any stars in the Bundesliga? Cuz the pros know playing in the Bundesliga will be a career suicide, unless you haven't been anywhere else before. Let me put it this way: If you're playing FIFA/PES on the world class mode & suddenly change to amateur of course you're gonna rip all the others apart cuz you're used to be a pro, but you're gonna have a tough time if you decide to go back to world class... speaking of Luca Toni, Ribery & co.
Well, you all can see I have serious issues with the Bundesliga. What bugs me about them is the big mouth. It's absolutely OK not to be perfect, but if you talk & act as if you are, then that's shit man! Every commentator, every football show on TV crapping over others, specially the Italians while they themselves are having issues. I was the happiest motherfucker when we gave Werder that serious ass whoopin' because that game forced the German commentators, who usually have a bigger mouth than their head, admit their team being outclassed by the Italian giants. That 4-0 ass kick was for you robbing Sampdoria & ultimately Italy of their 4th Champions League place... so...
IN YO' FACE
A woman as the referee? Bundesliga is phony... a fuckin' joke
And there is differences between players, you can't categorize all 30+ years old players as the same, some squads needs that experience IF that player is still fit and still doing good job at his part. Oldest player we ever transferred in last years is Guti who is 33 years old, and assuming we were looking for a "playmaker", a player who can add more creativity to our offense, who has a great vision and who can tutor our promising youngsters such as Necip Uysal and thus i think Guti was an awesome choice for Besiktas for their way to Europa League Final (just like Milito transfer for Inter for your way to CL Final), and he didn't come here to spend his last years of career with some more money, in fact he earns less than he used to in Real Madrid at the moment.
And lastly, even though not as good as Seria A/Premier League/La Liga, Turkey is a great place for players to show to the World what they got and revive their careers. Nicolas Anelka, Franck Ribery and currently Ricardo Quaresma are very good examples on this matter.
So when you are looking for some comparisons, compare leagues which you have enough knowledge on.
And on-topic.. When i think of Bundesliga, first thing comes to my mind is awesome looking pitches, might be the best in the World. And Westfalen is my favourite stadium if you don't count BJK Inonu Stadium of course..
Edit: How come i didn't mention St. Pauli? <3
First & foremost this is not about the Turkish league, I was talkin' about Bundesliga. I think Turkey is good in terms of football. No matter if we're talkin' about the national team or the league, but even though you're not among Europe's 4 star generals.
Ultras groups from 50 teams demonstrated against game times and tickets prices in Berlin!
Bayern Munich Set To Lodge Complaint Against Dutch FA Over Mark Van Bommel Injury
See what I mean? Bayern being a wannabe top European club is like a 6 year old child who whines, with its nose flowing, cuz his lollipop has dropped on the floor. Grow the hell up Bayern!!! Cambiasso & Milito got injured when Argentina was playing. Does Inter go bitch around?! Injuries are an inevitable part of the game. You gotta know the stakes or you just wanna "act" being a pro club?
Podolski owwwwwwwned by Sahin @0:27!!!
Background was war of words between them both before in which Poldi provoked the Turk with 3-0 victory of Germany. Then Nuri Sahin with the best possible response...
Haha that was awesome to watch as a Turk!
I'm proud of you Sahin!
Watch 2:04 to see Podolski making "3" with his fingers and provoking Sahin after he (Podolski) scored his goal at 82nd minute, and then, thanks to Sahin: BURNNNNNNN!
