For a team with long balls..there aint a better target man than him..

Nah, I can think of a few in the Prem alone. Carlton Cole is better, and Drogba is miles ahead of him. I'd say Carew might be better, too. He doesn't have the technique to be a first-choice player at a CL club. Europa league at most.

Still a good player, though, just not complete enough. I think Stoke is a good club for him, haven't had much chance to watch them yet, but I hope to see him and Fuller player together soon. Good players, both of them.

even dwight yorke played for a average aston villa team and went on to play some amazing football for united..
its that presence some players have
but the market nowadays prevents clubs taking risks..

for us united fans, javier hernandez is still a risk...a few good games and good prospects...but you never know..

I'm not saying players can't make the jump. You're just thinking about the idea of Kenwyne Jones, and not the actual player. Kenwyne Jones is not good enough to play at any top club. Dwight Yorke was.

lol I bet a better comparison would be Louis Saha. Wasn't a top player but did well for us. He was as good as our other players.

Yorke used to score 20+ goals a season for Villa.

I love the 3D graphic stuff for the new intro ... but this song has been stuck in my head for a while now -- anyone know who it's by or what it's called?

Haven't seen it yet, but surely it's not as ridiculous as Cesc's goal?

Also, **** Glen Johnson and Theo Walcott and get the Youngs (Luke and Ashley) in the NT now.

Besides the "WTF" goal, he made a great perfomance, i take the risk to say that if he wasnt subbed in, Tottenham would lose.

This whole thing is done in a 3d software first..modelled, rendered. post production in smoke, flame, combustion and others...
must be done by a very high profile production studio since its for the premier league...
valuation would easily be around 3,000,000 - 3,500,000 USD for this project..
i know cause im in the same business and we do similar work...but obviously ten times or 20 times the lower cost cause we are not so famous yet :P

Chelsea already 2-0 up, this team's killing-spree continues..

and Drogba is the sh't, probably the most complete striker in the game nowadays.

coming back to football...
chelsea are toooooo rompant...even though weak teams..such performances have given them an amazing boost...

malouda is playing outstanding football
and drogba at 33 is just one of the best in the world..

Don't worry they'll get overconfident at some point and lose points. I'm pretty sure about it. I'm eager for the Chelsea - City game. I think Chelsea has a better chance of winning it but I wouldn't be surprised at all if they lost points.
