re: 2014 Summer Transfer Thread - wm72
Özil is beautiful to watch for his vision and just silky smooth touches. If he's overrated it's by glossing over the criticism that he's never seemed to have a real grit about him which is why he's not as valuable in defense and pressing as some other attacking midfielders and sometimes seems ...

The only place I ever stayed overnight was Savona which is an hour or so west of Genova. However, I don't think you can go wrong with any of the small terraced villages in cinque terre area. Genova,'s medieval centre near the port is really cool but it's also pretty gritty as their port is famous...

Coast of Liguria is fantastic. Last time I was there some old man kept making noise on this horribly out of tune bagpipe under our hotel window. I finally went to give him some money to go to another spot and he had a big sign reading "help me, I'm deaf"...

Insigne and the Ultras could replace that stereotypical Italian couple on the recent coffee commercial. That Sabatini met with Benatia and offered him the highest wage for a CB in Italy with no news and then flew to London to work on a transfer for Chiriches makes me think it's simply a matter o...

[quote]benatia[/quote] my best guess is that Bayern ultimately pays what Roma is asking and he goes there and Roma gets Chiriches from Tottenham and another depth CB as well. [quote]destro[/quote] I think he stays. ...

re: Thursday Ask WM: Why do Napoli fans hate Insigne? - wm72
It's basically their ultras that have been on his arse since last season. It's dumb because he's really young and the mistakes etc are the same most young players make. However Insigne has done the worst thing possible by insulting them in the press continually. I don't think it's at any breaking ...

re: Celtic/Rangers and the Premier League - wm72
In terms of long term success in the EPL, I think people may be underestimating how huge a name Celtic would be in terms of worldwide marketing, with their history, fan base and immense appeal in the US. I think many investors (like what Pallotta is trying to do with AS Roma) would try to...
