Ronaldo - AC Milan Finally Seal the Deal

ac-milan-soccer-ball.jpgThe only big transfer for January that seemed certain is finally a done deal as Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid for AC Milan.

Unfortunately for Milan, the Brazilian superstar is cup-tied and cannot feature in the remainder of this year's Champions League.

Ronaldo follows David Beckham out the Galacticos-door that new Real manager Fabio Capello seems to have created.

The three-time FIFA World Player of the Year had no kinds words for his now former manager as he left, saying, "I want to thank... all the coaches I've had, except one".

Ronaldo leaves with the 2003 La Liga title and 95 goals in 152 La Liga and Champions League matches.

He joined Real from Inter Milan in 2002.

Javier Mascherano To Liverpool

liverpool-soccer-ball.gifA FIFA judge has given Javier Mascherano special dispensation to leave West Ham and join Liverpool.

The move will mean Mascherano will have played for three teams in the year starting July 1, which is against FIFA's rules.

Mascherano moved to West Ham from Brazil's Corinthians with teammate Carlos Tevez on the transfer deadline day last August.

The Argentine international received very little playing time at Upton Park.

David Beckham - Real Madrid's Capello Says Becks Might Still Play

david-beckham-soccer-balls.gifReal Madrid manager Fabio Capello has doubled-back on his original stance that David Beckham will not play for him again.

The former Juventus boss was quoted as saying, "People can make mistakes... when I see that he is in good shape and has a good attitude then he can form part of the team..."

It was unclear whether Capello was saying it was his own mistake, referring to his earlier comments, or whether he believed Beckham made a mistake by signing for MLS' LA Galaxy, leaving Madrid.

Either way, he has apparently rescinded his earlier statement that Beckham would never play for Madrid again.

Arsene Wenger Comments on Platini Champions League Proposal

arsenal-soccer-ball.jpgArsenal manager Arsene Wenger has brushed aside new UEFA president Michel Platini's plan for cutting England, Italy, and Spain's Champions League places from four to three.

Referring to Platini's campaign promise, the Gunners boss stated, "he cannot decide that, that has to be voted [by UEFA's executive committee]."

Platini has said an April vote will decide the proposal that he would like to see enacted for the 2009-2010 Champions League.

Matias Fernandez Assist Undoes Real Madrid

villarreal-jersey.jpgNew Villarreal midfielder Matias Fernandez produced some of the magic he was known for at Colo Colo as the Yellow Submarine downed Real Madrid 1-0.

Diego Forlan had started the match-winning play in the midfield by picking out Fernandez.

Fernandez, last year's South American Player of the Year, shrugged off Madrid's Diarra and put a no-look pass through to Marcos Garcia that froze World Player of the Year Fabio Cannavaro.

Sergio Ramos gave chase while Cannavaro was left to watch as Garcia slotted passed a helpless Iker Casillas.

Real Madrid fall one point off the pace as Barcelona and Sevilla have a game in hand.

Villarreal are now just seven points from a Champions League spot.

Fernandez joined Villarreal from Copa Sudamericana runners-up Colo Colo in late December and debuted against Valencia earlier this month.

Michel Platini - New UEFA President Seemingly Takes Aim at England

england-soccer-ball.gifNewly elected UEFA president Michel Platini has big plans for Europe. Unfortunately, they are negative plans.

Starting with the Champions League and running all the way down through the domestic leagues, the former France international has ideas that would have ramifications all over the globe were he to get his way.

Taking a Champions League spot from England, Spain, and Italy is first on Platini's agenda. A mistake that will surely negatively impact those leagues, but also the Champions League itself.

Anyone waxing poetically about the romance the tournament could bring with lesser clubs should check the scoreline of matches in Group A of this year's competition.

Levski Sofia, champions of Bulgaria in 2006, lost all six matches in Group A, scoring 1 goal while allowing 17. A goal difference of -16. And anyone who watched those matches can testify, they were every bit as bad as the scorelines indicate. It was sad and unenjoyable.

While it is certainly good to have underdogs in the mix, it hardly seems wise to look for ways of adding more.

But underdogs from the "Big 3" are a completely different story. Liverpool finished the 2003-2004 English Premier League in 4th and won the 2004-2005 Champions League in stunning fashion.

And although Arsenal finished 2nd in the 2004-2005 EPL, they finished 4th in 2005-2006 as they came within 14 minutes of lifting the Champions League trophy.

This year's Champions League has seen all four teams from England win their groups to advance into the final 16.

Simply put: England deserves four spots.

Whether Spain and Italy deserve their 4th spot might be up for debate. Osasuna crashed out in preliminary qualifying for Spain. But Italian football supporters might argue the match-fixing scandal that sent Chievo over Fiorentina muddles the issue. Chievo went out before the Group Stages.

It has been reported that Platini will likely trot out the tired idea of limiting foreign players. Another ill-conceived notion that again seemingly targets England more than any other country.

Arsene Wenger's great quote from last year sums up this idea with little discussion: "This player's first touch is not good, yes, we know but he is English. What can I do?"

As simple as Wenger makes it, another, much more complex issue, is rarely mentioned in arguments against quotas. That is the possible negative impact on players from less-profitable markets.

On an individual level, it definitely seems like you would be taking the opportunity from players in, say, Argentina or Chile to make a hugely profitable jump across the Atlantic.

The result being that country of origin means having a greater right to more money, no matter your footballing skills.

Placing limits is a one-sided, European view of the quota issue and doesn't seem well thought-out.

Other pressing issues to be presented by Platini include player salary limits that are based on percentages of club "turnover." Not only a confusing proposal, but one that would seem entirely unenforceable.

And even though this idea would heavily affect football powers in Spain, Italy, and elsewhere, it again seems targeted at England, coming at a time when Chelsea is top of the heap in spending.

It all adds up to a hands-on approach to running UEFA.

Unfortunately, it seems more like a hands-on approach to running clubs in England, which is not UEFA's purpose.

Didier Drogba Backs Jose Mourinho in Chelsea Turmoil

chelsea-soccer-ball.jpgChelsea striker Didier Drobga has thrown his support behind Jose Mourinho as the rift between manager and owner continues.

Roman Abramovich and Mourinho have yet to quell rumours that the "Special One" will leave at season's end.

Droga's loyalties are certainly understandable given the support he has received from Mourinho.

Even as many Chelsea supporters looked for Drogba to be sent packing a few seasons ago, Mourinho never wavered in his admiration of the Ivory Coast international.

Back then, Mourinho stated that if he were only able to take one man into battle with him, it would be Drogba.

Drogba has since become one of the world's premier strikers and is now frequently serenaded by the Stamford Bridge faithful.

The 28 year-old striker leads the EPL in scoring at 14 and has 21 goals in all competitions.

Ronaldo - AC Milan Looks to Sign Real Madrid Striker

ac-milan-soccer-ball.jpgAfter weeks of speculation, AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani has said Ronaldo will officially be joining the Italian giants as early as Monday.

Ronaldo is out of favor at Real Madrid and has had very little playing time as Fabio Capello seemingly looks to end the "Galacticos" era.

The 30 year-old Brazilian has started only three matches in La Liga this season.

Ronaldo joined Real Madrid from Inter Milan in 2002 and scored 83 goals in 127 appearances in all competitions.

Zinedine Zidane Rejects Chicago Fire, MLS Offers

la-galaxy-jersey.jpgReminiscent of the defunct NASL, MLS seems to be starting the losing trend of paying high prices for players past their prime. The David Beckham splash-out being the first and possibly the best example of what will likely be a trend.

In the newest developments, the Chicago Fire of the United States' MLS have been rejected by World Cup winner Zinedine Zidane, as well as Manchester United forward Henrik Larsson.

The club also revealed that Fulham's American striker Brian McBride had been made an offer, but he needs to "consider his options." It would seem unlikely that McBride would leave England where he leads his team with nine goals in all competitions and has received interest from other clubs, but at least it's within the realm of possibility.

Nonetheless, the apparent lack of interest in all three offers shows the uphill battle that MLS teams face when trying to compete for the world's elite footballers.

-The young superstars want glory as much as riches and Europe offers both.

-Players in their prime aren't looking to step down competitively just for money. And even if they were, MLS would still need to pay more than European clubs.

-Superstars just past their prime, like Beckham and Ronaldo, might excite a few more people to look at MLS, but signing older players doesn't spark the imagination.

Fans don't get to fire off those treasured football cliches like, "they say he's the next Maradonna." Or "you think Rooney's great now, can you imagine what he'll be like in a few years?"

More likely, most of the comments about players like Beckham will start with "I remember when...". That is when they don't begin with "I don't see what's so great about him..."

Sadly for great players like Beckham, they will face a lot of criticism when they don't turn the league upside-down by scoring every time they get a touch on the ball.

Trying times for a league that is attempting to push beyond its 10-year novelty phase to grow into a real big time contender.

It's a dilemma without many answers, but the tried and failed path of giving aging superstars one more big payday is not a recipe for success.

Not only is the product suspect, but we all know what happens to businesses that pay more for their merchandise than it can be sold for.

John Terry - Chelsea Defender Almost Back

The Chelsea captain has been sorely missed in the Blues defense and it is being reported that Terry and the club will soon reach an agreement.

Terry has allegedly insisted that Jose Mourinho remain at the club.

Shevchenko, Chelsea, and Troubles at Stamford Bridge

chelsea-soccer-ball.jpgWatching Chelsea's poor display against Liverpool on Saturday was rather sad, while being quite odd as well.

The once unbeatable Chelsea defense was again a mere shell of its former self, as Mourinho and Abramovich look set to gift the Premier League title to Manchester United.

Not that the Red Devils aren't worthy winners. But it would certainly have been much more impressive had United won it with the Blues at full strength.

Under the odd category; to see Petr Cech wearing a rugby-like helmet while Ferreira and Essien hacked away at central defense in front of him was nearly surreal. If Cech needs a helmet, he shouldn't be playing. It's just a game for God's sake. Hilario can watch the ball into the net every bit as well at Cech.

But as Chelsea lose their grip on the trophy, their offense should shoulder some of the blame as well.

Didier Drogba has been brilliant, but he is alone.

The 4-0 scoreline against Wigan was riddled with goals of chance including an own goal. And the Macclesfield scoresheet isn't worthy of discussion.

In the Premiership since Christmas, Chelsea did not score against Liverpool and Aston Villa. They scored twice against Fulham, one of those an own goal. And they scored twice versus Reading. Drogba scored all of those goals.

Ballack, Robben, Shevchenko; none of them are getting it done. Lampard has had his moments, but his shining performance from last season seems a faint memory. As will Chelsea's lifting of the trophy soon be.

So the autopsy starts early:
Why was Damien Duff considered so expendable?
If a 4-4-2 was a consideration, why was the brilliant Hernan Crespo not played with Drogba?
What major football club doesn't have at least one reserve, true, central defender?
What other owner and manager would be allowed to avoid discussing a rift that is obviously crippling the club?
And lastly, is it possible that Mourinho figured out bagging the Premiership and the League and FA Cups is the key to European glory?

I don't believe the latter is the case, but since it appears no signings are forthcoming, congrats to Sir Alex and company.

It's only late January, but Manchester United are far too good, and Chelsea are in disarray.

Truth be told, without Arsenal's stunning comeback over United on Sunday, the trophy was all but on its way back to Old Trafford.

David Beckham Will Not Leave Early

Real Madrid sporting director Predrag Mijatovic says David Beckham will not be leaving early for MLS' LA Galaxy.

Real manager Fabio Capello had earlier stated that Beckham was done at the Bernabeu, calling the former England captain's loyalty into question.

Since Beckham has started relatively little this season, whether he stays or goes certainly seems like a non-issue.
