The funniest thing is that his accent makes him sound like someone out of The Office.
The Ghana international is off contract at the end of this season and has not been offered new terms by Bayern.
People have short term memories..
But I can see why people might vote for Ronaldinho.
We've always said he'd play for England one day. So also look out for McMahon (did anyone watch match of the day?) and Morrison getting involved soon.
And while we're there - we also have the two best 16 year olds in the country - Lee Cattermole and Seb Hines.
If not, you are wrong.
I'd have stuck Adriano in there meself..
On another note, this must be the first year without a Real Madrid player being nominated for a while.
Henry was brilliant last season, true, but as soon as the going got a bit tough this year he buckled and got whiny. Arsenal need him to be pulling the team along by the neck and he's simply not doing it. Plus he was rubbish for France at Euro 2004.
Ronaldinho on the other hand has been pure class all of this year and plays every game with a huge smile on his face - granted, he can't help that most of the time, don't they have orthodontists in Spain?
Ahhhh.......everybody wants Downing
He won't go anywhere though. We're a stable, none-selling club, so any club wanting to buy him would ned to pay round a bout £10M (even in today's market - we don't need any money remember). That rules Man Utd out. Arsenal are also rather short of cash and you would think would spend what they do have on higher priorities (GK, centre back, etc). Chelsea have probably the only two left wingers better than Downing in the country (aside from Giggs) so they're ruled out. Liverpool is the only realistic option, but I doubt they have about £10M, and even if they did, again, left wing isn't their highest priority.
And there's probably more chance of Charlton getting Ronaldinho than there is a life long Boro fan born ad bred in the town going to the team up the road.
as he moves inside the final 18 months of his current contract.
Southampton probably will go down. I'm not basing that on any big predictions for the rest of the season or anything (because a side can turn a season around in a few games), bu lies on the next three games. They're playing rubbish and they've got 3 hard games coming up. They will be bottom by Christmas and thus relegated come May, as is always the case.
Most entrants are professional 7's rugby teams who specialise in getting all of the non international players together under one banner specifically to go round the world and play 7's.
After just a couple of days practice Saints got through to the Final of one of the biggest 7's tournaments in the world, the Middlesex 7's so easily won by Bradford Bulls a few years ago was by comparison a non event.
Well done to all concerned!
