I'm not expecting another top 3 season, but it'd be nice to still be competitive in Serie A.

Di Natale has effectively signed a contract that will see him end his career in Udine so there is some good news.

Also the Pozzos have taken over my local club, Watford, which is pretty cool and exciting.

Re: Football Zone

I've just read my post about the England team back again and it sounds quite silly. Excuse me!

England are pretty poor.

If you guys compare the amount of UEFA trained coaches that England has vs the amount countries like Spain or Germany have you can get why it is the way it is.

You see UEFA trained coaches in Spain doing work with the U-12 ranks of a club, so they get pro coaching since they are kids and get well acquainted with the system.

Also, most clubs & the NT tend to keep the same playing system along all the categories, see Spain NT for example: the senior, the Olympic team, the U-21, the U-20, the U-19, all teams play more or less the same way (with the obvious differences in level) but that means that when they get to the senior NT, they know how to play it, it isn't something weird for them and it is paying, see our results lately.

Up front, Danny Welbeck and Wayne Rooney looks like a great partnership that will last another couple of major tournaments.

I know it's not a fantastic team, but you can believe with it, unlike England teams for the past decade or so.
you should be happy Joe Hart is still so young. The other day I saw England U19 and the goalkeeper was extending the best Robbie Green tradition. Even the German Eurosport reporter said: "He tries to play football, he better stops with that."

Re: Football Zone

Santi Cazorla is better than Modric.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Football Zone

you're kidding right? well of course you have the right to your own opinion but I don't think Santi is nowhere near Modric.
