Hopefully Liverpool.

Imagine if he won us the PL for the first time in 20 years.That would be a nice stroke for his ego indeed.

But maybe Arsenal as well because I guarantee Wenger will be gone by the start of next season.

Well you've already got Andy Carroll in place for his #1 favourite tactic aka hoofball.

Don't be so sure about that.

The fans and media might think he's going or want him to go but with the board its a different story.

I can only see Wenger quitting if he loses patience with the abuse from supporters. There's no way he'd quit for footballing reasons; he'd feel that it's 'a setback' but has faith in the players to recover next year, and of course he is the best person to lead them. The board won't sack him because they'll need his ability to make transfer profits even more without CL revenue. The thought of Wenger going to Real Madrid is just hilarious. I can't think of any renown manager more inappropriate for the job.

And for me the same can be said for Jose Mourinho at Arsenal.

Mourinho at Spurs Laughing

The thought of Jose trying to win the league on the 6th highest Budget - pigs will fly 1st.

Besides, success starved we may be but we are a principled lot - we pride ourselves on good football and gentlemanly play, not the odiousness that Mourinho indulges in.

Khedira and Di Maria back in training and will most likely be available for selection at the weekend against Levante. I guess that means it will be back to the VIP stand for Sahin. It was interesting to here Metzelder's comments about Sahin earlier in the week. That he is more like Ozil than Alonso and that Sahin has to understand that nobody is going to wait for him in Madrid (referring to the fact that he was out injured and now can't get into the team....for whatever reason).

Sahin is a central midfielder and hence not like Özil, whose strengths are more deadly further up the pitch. Sahin was the league's best player when he won the Bundesliga with Dortmund on that position, the 'strategic mastermind' of the team. Everything went through him, his intelligence and passing range were exceptional. He is a player in the Xavi mould, not overly physical or aggressive, but a fine passer and creative midfielder to pull the strings.

However, Sahin is a rather sensitive fella, too, so much is true. He needs the full appreciation and backing of the coach to play at his best. As some may have forgotten by now, Sahin wasn't always setting the world alight in Dortmund. He made a great debut as the youngest player ever to play in the 1. Bundesliga, but then faded away rather quickly, so he was loaned out to Feyenoord later to gain experience. Only under Klopp he could finally show his full potential, after Klopp made him the 'mastermind' of his team.

Yes Metzelder also said this about playing deeper than Ozil but I think he was referring to the fact that he has the passing/creativity (like Ozil) but not the tackling/tactical [from a defensive standpoint] awareness (like Alonso). Hence more like Ozil than Alonso. Not that he is an exact copy of either.

Well, in Dortmund he had a 'defensive watchdog' in Sven Bender covering him (who is far from being just a destroyer, mind). So yes, he isn't a defensive midfielder or rather doesn't have the defensive positioning and 'instincts' of Schweinsteiger, Alonso and the likes - his focus clearly is the attack - more of a Xavi or Kroos.

Doesn't mean that he couldn't be paired with Alonso or Khedira, depending on what Mourinho is looking for. I could see a Alonso - Sahin partnerhip working for sure, but that would mean adjusting the game philosophy and putting more emphasis on possession and more patient buildups. The structure of the Madrid midfield would be more similar to say Barcelona than it is now (Alonso in the Busquets role, Sahin in the Xavi role, Özil in the Iniesta role).

Real Madrid set sights on Villarreal's Borja Valero - report
The midfielder is believed to have caught the attention of the Primera Division table-toppers, who are eager to bring him back to the Santiago Bernabeu

Borja Valero could be on his way out of Villarreal at the end of the 2011-12 campaign as Real Madrid have shown an interest in signing the midfielder in the summer transfer window, El Mundo Deportivo reports


Despite boasting a wealth of talent across midfield including Mesut Ozil, Kaka, Nuri Sahin, Xabi Alonso and Sami Khedira among others, the Santiago Bernabeu side are eager to bring the 27-year-old Valero back to the club.

Valero is a product of the Madrid youth academy, but never managed to break into the first team at los Blancos.

He eventually moved to Villarreal in the summer of 2010 after previous spells with Real Mallorca and West Bromwich Albion, and has since developed into a key player at the Yellow Submarine.

The Spain international has a contract until the summer of 2015 with Villarreal, and has a buy-out clause of €40 million.

Anyhow, I would love to have him back. I thought we should have taken him back after his first season in Mallorca. But better late than never.

Pochettino, posible relevo de Mou, según Punto Pelota

Mauricio Pochettino es el técnico mejor colocado para entrenar al Real Madrid la temporada que viene si la directiva blanca no consigue convencer a José Mourinho para que se quede, tal y como afirmó Josep Pedrerol en su programa Punto Pelota.

Todo empezó hace unas semanas cuando algunos medios de comunicación aseguraban que el ambiente entre algunos jugadores españoles del Madrid y el entrenador luso no era el ideal y que la decisión de Mourinho era la de abandonar el banquillo en junio.

La carrera de Pochettino en los banquillos es corta pero fructífera. El argentino se sacó la licencia de entrenador en 2008 y rápidamente se hizo con las riendas del equipo femenino del Espanyol. Pero la destitución un año después de Mané le hizo de trampolín directo a la plantilla del primer equipo y se ganó a pulso la renovación al conseguir la permanencia en Primera. Desde entonces la progresión del equipo perico ha sido notable. La temporada 2010-11 acabó en el octavo puesto de la tabla y ahora marcha quinto con los mismos puntos que el Levante, equipo que cierra los puestos de Liga de Campeones.

http://www.as.com/futbol/articulo/pochettino-posible-relevo-mou-punto/20120209dasdasftb_1/Tes

Interesting...I don't know why I have never thought of Pochettino! I do admire the work he has done at Espanyol.

Hmmmm.....

Madrid go for Van Persie. The 'Pichichi' (top scorer) of the Premier League is on Madrid's agenda. The Dutch forward has scored 22 goals with Arsenal. He's 28 years old. His contract ends in 2013 and he is holding off on a renewal. Mourinho has followed him for some time now. Barcelona are also interested.


Today's Marca has Van Persie allegedly saying "I really want to play in Madrid...but Arsenal do not want to negotiate"

Because it's typical Spanish press to make up nonsense transfer stories and portray it as the truth. And if there is some truth in it, it's typical Madrid to chase big money glamorous signings in positions that they don't really need strengthening.
