Ladies & gentlemen, Juventus is IN. As in saying "the Doctor is IN", only in a football
team context. Just a few days before their important reconciliation with Champions League (FC Zenit

of saying: "Bring it on Europe, we're [.

of changing team identities unless absolutely necessary (i.e. Sporting Kansas) sometimes you just
have to admit things are stuck in the Roller Hockey era and need a different approach (i.e. Crew,
Revolution, Rapids, Impact) While not lumbered with a 90's Nike-infused identity, Chivas USA were

Liverpool is set to go up against Juventus in the battle to sign Portuguese international
centre-back Bruno Alves, playing with with Zenit Saint-Petersbourg.

I think I am one of the few people in the blog/media realm that seems to enjoy the Europa League
(formerly UEFA Cup). I've always looked at it as a great way to get more cultured in European
football and see some of the up and coming stars before the big clubs swoop in for them. That said,
this competition can be quite long to follow, especially if you try and follow the qualifiers.

laid down.Now i know Dick Advocaat destroyed Bayern and clinically they must have been amazing off
the counter attack.
Mano Menezes has thrown Hulk into Brazil's starting line-up against China. The FC Zenit forward
was impressive after coming off the bench last Friday to score the goal that spared Brazil's
