    Yahoo! Sports is a biased source that hates USC and has zero credibility.

    exactly my point. If he would have given it back two weeks ago it looks a lot better than having it taken away.

    It's gonna be left vacant. IMO, it's bullshit. I agree that USC needed to be punished for encouraging the environment but I would suggest that the % of Heisman winners over the last 40 years who received "improper benefits" is > 80.

    Hudson was going nuts over Ozil yesterday. Called him the most underrated player in the world. "With his big beautiful eyes"

    He is so good because of how he can move around the other players. He is the key to Madrid this year.

    Also really like Coentrao over Khedira.

    Meant it as the strategy of starting Coentrao in the mid as an attacking wing (like Spurs did with Bale) as having Khedira pairing Alonso. I thought that Khedira was not a great attacker and he was out of position a lot. Coentrao is fast so he covers more and is also a better attacker IMO. Only problem I see is that if Coentrao gets too forward too much (like ChileanNole on Real Mainboard) and leaves the back exposed.

    yeah khedira is a very streaky attacker and for me limited. but he's a great destroyer and dedicated cdm, and in that role has above average attacking movement and pace

    i want him to be subbed with kroos situationally for the 6 alongside schweini if germany doesnt move to the 4-2-4-(0) alignment

    Zaragoza was overmatched yesterday. Going to be a fun year to follow Real, looking like a good 2nd year for us. Mourinho's teachings have had time to be absorbed.

    The matches v. Barca will be incredible all season long.

    I agree w ur assesment of Khedira but Alonso provides enough defensive skills and Coentrao was originally a fullback so his defense is enough for La Liga. Coentrao is the better attacker.

    I would not be shocked to see Khedira when Real plays more attacking teams in the UCL or La Liga.

    I don't know why more attack would be necessary with Alonso, Ronaldo, Di Maria, Ozil and Benzema already out there.

    More attacking helps in La Liga because teams park the bus against Madrid. Also Xabi plays his role so well that he allows Coentrao to go forward.

    Yeah I remember the games last year when 0 or 1 goals were scored so maybe it is needed for games like that. I also remember 2 years ago when Xabi was the closest thing to a DM in the game and the team looked awful in defense so there's that too.

    real should be building its team to beat ucl teams and i think they'd need khedira against those, but its nice to have a better attacking option

    No one would give a shit about La Liga if it were watered down and didn't have Barca and Real at the top. The top players would head to England instead.

    I think Real and Barca should break off from La Liga and along with the best teams in England and Italy start a super-league. They could still have the UCL and this. UCL would be the tournament style and the league would just be a regular league. Of course this will never happen but it would be awesome.

    Bundesliga >>>> Serie A right now. Has been for a couple years. Serie A quality has been lacking because Roma/Juventus/Fiorentina fell off. Udinese was great last year to watch but they lost so much...

    Really looking forward to seeing how Napoli and Dortmund do in the CL, both teams have grips of star talent, could be cool to "outsiders" challenge in the CL.

    I know I was trying to see if you would fall.

    Honestly the reason why I even mentioned the super league is because right now outside of England the leagues are pretty boring. Germany is actually an exception with the resurgence of Dortmund. But I am not convinced that they will keep their younger players. When Bayern, England and the big 2 in Spain call they will leave.

    By the way, what the fuck happened to my avatar?

    1. EPL
    2. Bundesliga
    3. La Liga
    4. Serie A
    5. Ligue 1

    ^That's the way it stands at the moment, IMO. Germany doesn't have more quality than Spain at the top, but at least the majority of the league isn't a fucking joke.

    I can't see Serie A ever being what it once was... The decline of Italy will just kill the league even further. With Roma's new ownership, though, I could see Serie A still having a pretty solid top 4.

    It also depends on how we are judging the leagues. Pure talent? Parity? Week-to-week entertainment? How they perform in international competitions? The only storyline on La Liga is Barca v Real, so to me it takes away from the overall entertainment, but the talent league wise is good, just happens that the top 2 are in another world.
