Like I said in the comments in the few posts earlier, there is no chance Liverpool will not be given any chance to defend the title. My best simple reason is not how dramatic Liverpool came back to win the title from Milan, but rather how they are threatened by G14. For me, the best reason to find this solution to please the G14 is because of financial means. There is no other more concrete reasons than that. If for any reasons they don't let Liverpool to defend the title, the G14 may act in abandoning the Champions League. Liverpool themselves are part of G14. Therefore, UEFA will be pressured to follow their demands. In the end, this is a money making world and nobody will be interested in doing something not money oriented. The professional excuse UEFA gave was that it is their own mistake not to allow the champions of the past season to defend the title in the coming one.

This dude fails the first medical with Valencia because of his knee injury. He may not be able to join if he fails the second. He will follow Edu there on free transfer if he succeeds.

He signed for Villareal and also scored one of the 3 goals against Brazil just recently. I can only think of more better things to come from him! Why no big clubs are interested in his services? I really have no idea!

Adriano, Eto'o, Henry
None of them is going anywhere. At least that is how it seems now.

Kuffour, Ballack
Kuffour went to join Roma while Ballack still does not wish to extend his contract talks. This has forced Munich to consider selling him or lost him for free at the end of next season. There are many speculations saying that Kuffour is joining Roma because of the expected arrival of Trapattoni as Giallorossi's next coach.

van der Sar, Park
Manchester United bought really funny and unexpected players this season. I don't expect this two players to make an impact anyway so I don't understand the reason of the purchase. van der Sar had signed but not Park yet.

With the rumours of ticket prices hike by 50% in the next 5 years, Glazer again will be the fans number 1 enemy! It is also reported that Sir Alex Ferguson, or whoever is in charge, will receive a maximum of £25m to spend on transfers each season.

Pirlo, Guti
There are rumours saying a swap between the two will be done between Milan and Real Madrid with some money involved. Pirlo seems very quiet this season and I don't have any comments if he is to come Madrid's way.

Nonda, Cassano
Two weeks ago Juventus announced that Shabani Nonda failed his medical tests and therefore did not sign the Congo striker. However, latest news are suggesting that the Bianconeri’s real reason for not signing Nonda was another one.

It has been made known that also Roma are after the former Monaco striker and for this reason Juventus decided to let go the player so to be able to arrive to Antonio Cassano, the real target of this summer for the Old Lady. Nonda is expected to undertake Roma’s medical tests and if everything goes well he could sign within this week.

Robson De Souza, or as better known Robinho, revealed that his dream would be to play for the Real Madrid. Robinho is followed by most big European clubs but for the time being he is just interested in helping Santos win the Copa Libertadores.

“Right now I want to win the Copa Libertadores with Santos and then we shall see. However, one of my objectives is to play in the first team of a European squad.”

Come on baby! Quickly make your decision!!! I cannot wait forever!
