I think refereeing is really starting to deteriorate, because, me observing the Manchester United-Newcastle United game, United were robbed a penalty, Colocini escaped a red card, Ryan Giggs escaped a red, Newcastle were awarded a controversial goal, man...It was a great game to watch as a neutral beside those bad decisions though. I think the game has to become a little bit ( A LITTLE BIT ) more robotic to help the referees make more accurate decisions, less human error. Mind you, I didn't say completely robotic, but just a little, and I think that would benefit the game a lot!
Yeah, Ferguson desperately needs to fix the defense. But I'm pretty sure they can take on Real Madrid, considering the sub par season they are having.

Liverpool F-ed up.

An unnamed Russian club (guess who?) has matched Lionel Messi's release clause of €250 million and Barcelona are contractually obliged to accept it- but Messi has to agree to the move for it to go ahead, and he's proven loyalty to the Catalans by signing a two-year contract extension.
^I'm guessing Rotor Volgograd is the Russian team. Anyways, ladies and gentlemen, my team's going up baby, yeah, just gotta win our next matches without losing then we'll be in the Championship because Walsall are invincible baby, yeah.
As to what once, it now is. For this my retirement tour, let us commence, forevermore, forevermore.
What's your source on the Messi thing um...Ninjames? I'd like to read it, thanks.
I see Liverpool are improving a bit under Rogers, awesome for them! Just a little more work and splashing some cash in January and Liverpool may get into a Europa League spot for next season.
They said Messi refused a 30 million/year offer, but did use the interest to get the maximum out the negotiations with Barcelona.
For those who can read Spanish: original source

Yeah I read the Mundo Deportivo report. I guess the un-named Russian club must be Anzi (sp?).
I also read on Goal.com Transfer Talk that Real Madrid are planning to sell Cristiano Ronaldo and buy Lionel Messi with the money from Ronaldo's sale.
Watch the penalty after 2:00 min. This was the best I could find and it is not very clear. But after the match everyone, even Markus Merk agreed that there was no penalty. There was no contact, you could even tell from the TV. As usual Galatasaray gets points thanks to the referee (this happens in every Besiktas - Galatasaray match, they always get a point or points thanks to the referee). That's why I call them hakemsaray (hakem=referee).

Is anyone else excited for the summer transfer season to start?
Ah crap that's what I mean't. Summer over here.
There is one thing I wonder though. Wesley Sneijder.
He has a conflict with Internazionale and it would be best for both if he would leave in this transfer period.
I suspect he will go to England, Man City maybe, as Mancini said he wants to buy once again.
And to be fair, I don't see Sneijder moving to Russia.
How's 2013 btw?
We still have an hour to go :P
