bolasepak adalah permainan untuk 11 orang.
jika Kaka boleh bermain seorang atau berempat sahaja,ok.


untuk marketing atau jadi umpan menang pemilihan presiden, bolehla.
Kaka tak mau pergi Man city sebab, bukan wang yg dikejarnya.dia tak mahu jadi 'pawn' dalam percaturan Man City..tapi dia jadi pawn jugak bila Ke Real. i dunno la.

j or ji: He knew wasn't gonna win shit at city, that's why.

Ultimately, we are talking about Real madrid & all the prestige that entails.

And let's not forget, kaka is just the first in one of many targets. And the last time Perez went on a smilar buying spree that saw zidane, figo, ronaldo et al arrive, they won quite a few gongs.

If he gets em all, me thinks they'll win the champions league next season.

ps: U joining us fer 27th June? Pls come.

No player is worth that kind of money. It is ppl like Perez and Roman that has inflated the prices. A "Bubble Economy" in economic terms. Imagine if he got Ronaldo as well! It would be like Chippendale's!!! He shd then get Frank Ribery to balance it out! Haha!

However, frens(Women of course) of mine who are fans of players(Esp Kaka and Ron) seem to love it cos he can now get more airtime in Real!!! Women!!!

Well i wonder where did they get all the money...

LLT: Am ok with this kaka fella. At least he's not a whining, diving prima donna. Not his fault that real wanna fork out such a large sum.

Plus me remembers how his passes cut us open on both finals in Istanbul & Rome. In the former, am sure you recall how he turned & left our own Stevie G fer dead before splitting our defence wide open with a sublime thru ball fer Crespo to score milan's 3rd. He did the same in Athens.

No doubt this boy is class & while me concurs nobody is worth that much ('bubble economy' as ye says), me thinks Real revel in making these sort of bombastic transfer fee headlines.

Anba: Me thinks they are gonna pass the £80m million mark fer the portoguese wanker.

Like i said in my blog, recession? What recession? All these richman clubs are trying to single handedly save the world economy by investing in over-paid and insome cases over-rated players. "Small" clubs like us will suffer.

anfield devotee said...

JonC: Are we to share the same doom as another small club who won back to back european cups - Forest?

Jon-C said...

Looking at our finances..... i'll will not discount that thought!

BTW, that diving chumpion is gonna joint "galactico" team for 80m quid.

anfield devotee said...

dunno whether that's a good thing as 80m quid is a lot of dough & they can buy at least three world class signings with that - eg zlatan, ribery & even keep tevez.
