Well, it's that time again... no more football for a few months, but still plenty going on.

In honour of Eb I'm posting this link for a starter -

So far Raul, Del Piero, Nesta, Ballack, and apparently Gattuso have been linked with the MLS.

I suppose the MLS is becoming more lucrative than it used to be, and what with Beckham spending time at the Galaxy over the last 5 years, it suddenly has less of a "washed up loser" status.

Interesting that Dalglish has been sacked too, not that it wasn't expected.

The King is dead, long live The King.

You're probably right about Di Matteo, too.

Apparently he's already in the picture as a caretaker. That would be interesting, eh?

Default Re: 2012 Closed Season, news and transfer rumours.

I see that Park has been dropped by South Korea for not being a 1st team player. Guess he'll be off then. And Michael Owen has been shown the door after doing absolutely nothing for 3 years. He moved to Manure when he was 29 - and did sod all. Why would you do that?

What gets me about Owen is that he says the Championship isn't an option as he can still score goals at the highest level. Surely if you can't even hobble on to the pitch then you can't score goals at the highest level?

I actually think Park will stay at United.
As for Owen, he moved to Real to basically be a sub, didn't he?
He wasn't the same player after having that ACL injury, and at Newcastle he struggled. I think he knew that he wasn't ever going to play 90 minutes, week in and week out.. so he went to United. It was a payday and at a big club.
It's like asking why did Beckham go to the Galaxy, instead of playing premiership football, I suppose. 60 million over 5 years might have had something to do with it.
