He won the 2010-11 UEFA Best Player in Europe Award. Tottenham have to play their best game of the season to beat Madrid at their stadium. In the Allianz Arena, the Swiss, however, with 7-0 crushed. One hundred thirty millions dollars. $130,000,000!

The decision to let Beckham return to the team is rather shocking. It appeared that his career was truly over with Real Madrid. The two parties were in deep negotiations on a two-year contract extension. While negotiating, the LA Galaxy decided to make a deal that Beckham simply could not refuse. He received a contract offer that is rumored to total $250 million. Beckham quickly signed the contract and outraged his coach and team. Real Madrid’s head coach Fabio Capello stated that the former English captain would never again play for the team after his announcement to sign with the LA Galaxy.
JUNE 11: United are 0-0-2 on this date, with both draws coming on the road against Western Conference opponents that DC had previously played in MLS Cup finals.
In the summer, everyone and I feel Benitez included, expected more money from the owners. People talk about how much we spent, but they seem to have completely forgotten that we sold just as many and our net spending was around 25 million! Sunderland spent more than that while Man u spent more than double. he wanted to buy more, you could feel and sense it, but I think a combination of the new stadium cost, the slowness and procrastination of Rick Parry and a lack of funds resulted in a halt of the spending.
Liverpool is on the verge of going out of the Champions League. Does that mean we should fire Rafa? I feel this is really Benitez’s first season. Why? Its the first season he really has a squad that you could say he truly wanted. So don’t you think he deserves a little more time to gel this squad together? Its a big squad and one cannot expect them to perform from day one. Thus far, we are doing exceptionally well being unbeaten in the league, the best start to a league season in over six years.
Star Player – Chelsea’s new signing of Michael Ballack will definitely stand out compared to the rest of the German team. He is a World Class midfielder and definitely knows the ins and outs of the game.
Now one can say that at Tottenham he was one of two main strikers and worked well with Robbie Keane. One could also argue that he had to work alongside Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo, and was competing for position with Carlos Tevez. But spending $60 million on a player should result in more than 15 goals, so lets just hope he can improve next season, as Robinho should. If that was last years more expensive players, what can we expect from this summer.
