    Even if all their best players left, the odds are that one or two would hang around through their love of the club. And I imagine the youngsters they have coming through the ranks would be good enough to get them back up. Even if the youngsters wanted to leave, Juve could get a lot of money for them, and I am sure there are lots of good players about who would join Juve on the assumption they will be back in the big time soon.

    I hope the book gets thrown at them. It probably won't because Italian football is corrupt. But I hope it does. No club is bigger than the game. If I watch a football match and pay hard earned money, I want to know it really is a match. If some financial bigwigs think otherwise they can get the feck out of our game.

    Gerrard > Riquelme > Ballack > Kaka

    Gerrard is better than all three, hands down. Stevie G is the best midfielder in the world, just ask a Liverpool fan, they'll agree.

    I reckon Riquelme would make it at United. He's the type to see a tackle coming and make a few people look stupid who were just out to kick him. Like Fabregas, he's got great peripheral vision and sees people coming, allowing him to get out of the way with a trick of a side step. I don't think he'd be like Veron, even though they are quite similar players in my eyes.

    Each player has their own strengths and weaknesses, but i would in no way say one of them is "hands down" better than the other.

    If I had the choice of any of the three in my team I'd go for Ballack no doubt.

    The only thing he can't provide better than the other two would be technical ability.

    Apart from that he has the work rate, the stamina, the ability to win balls, the ability to shoot from long distances, the heading prowess and perhaps most important of all, the consistency, which I think is the main thing my good friends Juan and Riccardo are lacking these days

    Considering the current court cases that have been started by Leeds, I would suggest we are more like Chelsea's feeder club. :mad:

    The immense player he was. I wanted to highlight some of the top moments for one of my favourite all time players, who was just so incredibly creative and dynamic on the pitch. Here's to you Master Cruyff. Enjoy:

    Amazing penalty:

    He was an amazing player. Just a shame he never lifted the World Cup, like many of the greats... it somehow escaped him.

    Yeah but that looks more like a peacock facing in the other direction to me. Apparently, so i've been told, that's a nickname for Leeds. Can't say i've ever heard it though
