He was given plenty of opportunities there, and he certainly didn't live up to the hype. I wouldn't say he was bad during his Madrid days, he was just ok. And it did have to do with lack of professionalism. His nights out in Madrid (on his own or along with Ronaldo) were legenday. Then he jumped shit and acted like and entitled prick who's afraid of competition when Cristiano was signed. Wasted potential and poor professional, that's my assessment.



If we're talking since 2006/07, then what I'm saying applies. He played great that season but Capello was changing up and down. The next season, he was one of the best players in the world. He was easily Madrid's best player, along with Iker, and he was just dangled about as bait for CRon. And that was wrong. At City, he was very very good and was scoring a goal every 2 games, no matter how deep he played.


He's just easy to overlook. His first year at Milan...don't think Milan win Serie A without him. There was a stretch where Zlatan wasn't scoring and where Robinho was saving them. And he was solid last year too.


So what I'm saying is fair. His mistakes from early on shouldn't be the end all for what kind of professional he has been for the most part. This guy is a forward and has as much work rate as any player around. For all his dribbling, is all about linking up and playing within the team. It's unfair.



BTW, Serie A is terrific, but people will bitch about whatever they want so whatever.

Man Suso is impressive, came on and created a goal within 60 seconds. Yesil played like 80 minutes and Liverpool debuted a kid named Jerome Sinclair who turned 16 six days ago.

Sahin 2 goals in 2-1 Capital One Cup win at West Brom.

John Terry suspended four games for being a racist dumbass. He's a great guy it seems...kind of guy you'd like to hang out with, meet your wife, be your best buddy.

That's stupid.. Everyone wants to be politically correct and I doubt he said anything racist.. Wasn't he denied of the charges? BTW, why the **** was he sent to court for alleged "racism"?

I'm not sure if he's guilty or what he did or didn't do - you probably know better. I do know that he seems to get into tons of problems though - he's got to be a world class asshole because if not it's a grand coincidence.

Every team has them, if you think your team is made of only good family men then you're just clueless.

The John Terry thing is stupid. Ferdinand gave his account of what happened...immediately after the game, he said he didn't know what had happened until he heard and then saw the video.



So what other account can he give? Seriously? Anelka was right there next to them when it happened. If I remember correctly, Nicolas Anelka is black...this is stupid.

One of the great things about being an american soccer fan is i get no news unless i seek it out. I'm very isolated from all of this, and i'm glad because it all seems very stupid.

I remember in the NHL a white player called this black enforcer A GORILLA and it becamse a scandal. Never mind the black guy was a big stupid dirty goon who resembled, because he was a big ugly mofo a gorilla. Two guys are punching each other callming each other and their mothers names and it's a problem because of "Racist behavior".

SOmetimes people are stupid.
